[whitespace] Jade-blue Eclipse

Job Interview

Lunar Eclipse

By Jack Shamama

At the tender age of 23, Jade-blue Eclipse has worn practically every hat there is to wear in the sex industry. She must be doing something right, since Annie Sprinkle lists Jade-blue as her favorite stripper and porn star. Her show, 'Three Movements through Survival Art and the Sex Industry,' plays intermittently at the Luna Sea theater Sept. 23 through Oct. 2

Call for show times.

What do you consider your job?

Survival artist--not to be confused with con artist. I did and still do things to survive--like martial arts, prostitution and stripping--and do them with honesty, integrity and creatively, and people nowadays consider that art, because supposedly honesty is a rare form of expression.

How did you start?

The question is how do you stop?

How long have you been doing it?

I've been honest the best I can all my life.

Who or what was your inspiration to enter this career?

All the people I saw live their lives passionately--live passionately, die honorably.

Do you have any pet peeves about this career?

I wish I was considered normal. Not 'cause I wanna be normal, but because living a healthy life should be considered normal. Not the other way around.

If you couldn't be doing this, what would you be doing?

If everybody didn't think I was interesting because everyone else started getting a life too, then I'd be just happy doing what I'm doing and/or I'd just do a lotta sports.

Are there any perks that you get from this job?

I touch people.
