This blog has always been a place where I can share a few of my favorite things. One of my most favorite things is girls. So now every week I am gonna share one of my favorite girls. It isn’t everyday that you come across a full blooded Indian chick that is ready to bare it all for a magazine like Playboy or Penthouse, but that day has finally come, boys and girls, meet Indo Dreamin’s girl of the week, Sunny Leone. Although she was born and raised in Canada, she is still a Desi at heart and is exposed to same traditional up bringing that many of us Indians living abroad have endured.
In this interview with DesiClub, Sunny talks a bit about her views on some of the work she has done as well as the reaction from the generally conservative society she comes from. I must say that I found her opinions not only honest and brave but also very intelligent and thought out. For example when asked what sexual position she preferred, Sunny simply answered, “My favorite sexual position would be lying on my side, that way it's still kinda missionary and doggy at the same time. Not sure what the position is called.” FYI, it is called ‘spooning’ and if that answer is not honest and well thought out, I don’t know what is.
In the same interview she also shared her parent’s reaction to her choice of work saying, “My family loves me and accepts me for who I am. No parent can just stop loving their child. I am Daddy's little girl in his eyes. Of course they don't want me to continue but I tell them my plans, what I am doing and most importantly I tell them I am happy and that's all they want.” In response to how the Desi community around her is reacting she retorted, “In the beginning I did get a lot of negative attention from the Desi community but now I think people are coming around and I am getting nothing but positive feedback. I have not done much with the Indian community as far as promotions go but I would like to only because the last few things I did have been great. I have more girls come up to me then men do. It's great!”
One of the high points in Sunny’s career was probably when she won the esteemed title of Penthouse Pet 2003. She has stared in some erotic films and posed with other magazines but most of her shoots are not really hard core and she mostly poses with other women. She is not a self professed lesbian as yet but she has admitted to being a bit more than curious after a few drinks and she isn’t shy to say what exactly she has on her mind. In this interview with ModFX, when asked for 3 words that best describe her she says, “Three words to describe myself would be horny, horny, horny! Just kidding. Hopefully happy, driven, and... horny! (heh heh) I'm just a horny Indian!” Now fella’s, you know that just put a great big smile on my face.
All in all, Sunny Leone seems like a real stand up chick to me. We like to believe that men and women are equal in everyway but we are still as far away from that reality as we are from seeing the end of racism. The Indian communities in Canada are notorious for being overly conservative and have even gone as far as to have their own children killed for disobeying their rules. It is refreshing and uplifting to see a solid Desi chick push the boundaries out a bit. Most people think that Indians living abroad are far more liberated than the ones living in India but the truth is quite the opposite. So I wish Sunny the best of luck and I hope to see a lot MORE of her in the future.
Oh and one more thing. A few months ago, I took a shot at introducing the new word “Aviesque” to the English language. Well today I actually got a hit on this blog from a person who keyed in that exact word!!! Check it out. I still don’t know what it means though. Maybe we could say, Sunny Leone is so fuckin aviesque. I like that.
