Lanita Joseph

I have to say, Lanita is a consummate professional. She came to the shoot dealing with a few personal issues. She smiled and said,” No I’m fine, Let’s do it.” It was like she flipped a switch and focused strictly on the shoot. She smiled and danced some as the jazz music switched between swing and some soulful sounds,  the dance choreographer came out and she began to loosen up.

Tell us about you? I’m full of curiosity and wonder I enjoy exploring different concepts when it comes to art and photography. I aspire to be as an embalmer and cremator.
How do you describe your kink? I like to dabble in everything. Everything in moderation. Latex, bdsm, role play and reversal etc.
What is your interest in rope? The term shibari has not been in my dictionary for very long but from what I know of it.
What has been your experience with rope? I find it an exquisite form of artistic display.

How was your experience working with Mr. Abrams? Mr. Abrams is the first shibarist I have come in contact with so this may be biased and I may be holding him on a pedastool but he’s exceedingly talented not only as a shibarist but a photographer as well as photo editor.
Do you consider yourself a Dominant, Submissive, or Switch?  I am what I need to be, but for the right person I am a submissive, it is hard for me to naturally relax and give just anyone control of myself and my body. I find it easier to take on a dominant kind of role. However when I am physically with someone and I have no doubts about bar person I can let my guard down and trust them to take control.
How did you hear you about Knotty Girls? I encountered Mr. Abrams’ Instagram page and immediately the thought kind of stuck in my head. Although I don’t always collaborate I will for something that A. Piques my interest and B. Will definitely be a great addition to my portfolio.
You told me this was your first bondage shoot, how was it?
Would you consider yourself a kinky person? It was an interesting shoot and in no way did I feel violated Mr. Abrams kept it professional which helps all the more seeing as how restricting bondage can be.
How do you prepare for a show/shoot? In all honesty if it’s an early shoot I spend all night waking up every hour against my will finally manage to get up, put some cold tea bags over my eyelids apply some shadow, slick on some eyeliner and rub in some color (usually peachy or irridescent) on my cheeks (red/pink/wine) on my lips. I take my dog out, let her do her business and leave for my shoot.
Let’s change things up some…
Favorite Song to dance to? Anything by g eazy but I also like that song “I like tuh” DJ Carnage makes a remix featuring Lil Wayne and G Eazy 😉
However I also love country music and can find myself humming and swaying to that as well.
What’s you Guilty Pleasure? I enjoy sweets although I should really curb my intake. Not being of weight reasons, I could care less of how much I weigh.. I enjoy red meat, I enjoy sugar, especially sea salted brownies from trader joes and those little cake balls called wedding cakes as well as lemon tarts and coffee or mango flavored anything.
Which do you prefer;
Car, Truck or motorcycle?  Tacoma crew cab. Although I drive a civic (super gas efficient) and motorcycles are awesome but you have to worry about yourself and obeying the rules of the road as well as relying on the people around you to know the rules of the road.
Sneakers, Boots, Stilettos? I like sneakers I like boots, heels are pretty yet not everyday functional.

What’s was the inspiration behind this shoot?  The inspiration was B&W Kink…… To show sexual expression without color… The body speaks for itself … Natural art.

How do you prepare for a shoot? First I pray… Then I pack any of my own belongings that I may need… I practice facial expressions … I also have a talk with myself.. Then when I arrive at the shoot I pray again.




Take Off by Ashley Weathers

I won’t do this poetry thing like the rest

No not no way I want to b known as a great

But if I can’t get that Il take one of the best

I can survive any open mic

Put me to the test

N I’ve never been to one

But I mite

I’m not being big headed

I’m just being real

Staying confidant

But I’m sure I’m right

If there were hood poetry battles

I would win Straight knock out no fight

I work hard for anything and everything

Not slight

Cuz when I get to the top

I don’t ever want the good stuff to stop

I got to blow up Straight go , no stop sign

No pedestrians

I’m not waiting on no one to catch up

Go time Green light

Nothing will hold me back

Nope not drugs

Not even Gett’n slapped

Not in these streets like that

So Im sure ain’t getting capped

Not leaving this world no time soon

But soon I will b a star

Or should I’ll be way up to the  Moon

Lesson learned the hard way: So I learned that you can’t be nice to everyone the hard way. People often take my kindness for weakness. They try to see how much they can get out of me.

How long have you been doing this? I have been modeling for about 3 years now and I love it!

What got you into this? When I was younger so many people told me that I should model. I tried it and was very good at it…I really enjoy it.
