January can be a difficult lady to figure out...her demeanor is very direct and friendly, and simultaneously quite serious and professional. It’s interesting when sitting at a table with her to picture what this woman does for a living.
January is one of the Industry’s up and coming BDSM/fetish model/producers. With four websites currently in operation (InescapableBondage.com, JanuarySeraph.com, CBTandBallBusting.com and SmuttyCash.com) and regular modeling for internet based subscription sites, she has a lot of irons in the fire.
Seraph got started in the Industry via a conventional route, having worked as an exotic dancer in Florida. She did her first on camera work with Eric Kroll for Fetish USA and hasn’t stopped since.
If January were not modeling, she would be dabbling in real estate - purchasing and restoring houses. This alternate career is in keeping with her personality. In her free time, she’s more likely to be home making latex clothes, reading (Gregory McGuire’s Wicked is a favorite) or cooking.
Given the opportunity to change anything about the Industry, Seraph would love to see fetish-based content become more mainstream. ''A lot of care and work goes into it.'' When asked what advice she’d have for a model just starting out, January advises that the person be certain that it is the activity they are interested, not just the paycheck, stating ''Never expand your limitations for money.'' Seraph also feels it is important to check references, and advises against trying a new toy or modality on camera the first time.
January has concerns about the future of the Industry, pointing out that Visa is actively attempting to tone down content on pay sites they do business with. She also cites attempts in England to pass extreme new obscenity laws. Despite this, January plans on going into production in the future in part because she enjoys interacting with models.
Seraph has fairly intellectual tastes as far as her entertainment goes, Closer (starring Natalie Portman) is a favorite work, as well as Andrew Blake and Jack the Zipper. She recalls her worst hotel room as being a Thailand hovel with giant spiders, cold water and cracks in the walls. Cracks you could see daylight through.
The strangest food January Seraph has eaten is Crocodile, which she compares to ''chicken that’s been soaked in muddy swamp water.''
January’s very hot work can be seen on InescapableBondage.com, JanuarySeraph.com, cbtandballbusting.com and Smuttycash.com. This beautiful, graceful and very nasty lady is a credit to the field, check her out!
