BW: What brings you to Atlanta?
Yummy: I was trying to get into the adult film industry and then I lost my connection. Kinda got stuck out here.
BW: Can you tell me about something that really changed your life, for better or worse?
Yummy: Well, when I was younger, I was um… actually molested. So…
BW: How old were you?
Yummy: I was eight. I never really told anybody. I do feel like that’s what pushed me in the direction where I’m more sexual, I guess, even though it’s used more for a commodity.
BW: You never told anybody about what happened when you were eight?
Yummy: No, you are the first person.
BW: Was it a family member?
Yummy: It was an [older] cousin. But I think being exposed to that at such a young age. It’s really something that stuck.
BW: Was it a one time thing?
Yummy: It was like a two time thing. The first time you really don’t know what’s going on. The second time you’re like, “how much of a donation are you making?”
BW: You didn’t have that conversation with him at eight years old did you?
Yummy: No but that’s what it transpired into. I told him that I would do it for something in return. What was in return was a particular snack that I liked. Teddy Grahams and hot Cheetos. It was something you would idolize as a kid. You like, damn I gotta do this shit anyway… so when I reached a certain age, that’s when I started using it as a commodity. A way to get things that you want.
There was this one time… basically I was not too good at science. I needed to make an A on this project. There was this guy in my science class and he was kinda digging me and we made a proposition and I came out with an A on my science project. I had this awesome poster.
BW: So, he made a poster for you in exchange for sex?
