Interview With Gretchen Glam Wretched
The Horribly Glamorous Gretchen Glam Wretched
How did you become interested in fetish/BDSM?
I've never really been interested in it actually. Just curious. It's never been something I ever thought about getting into. I've done a lot of crazy things and seen a lot of different cultures but Fetish is still one of those things that completely confuses me. I think its very interesting don't get me wrong. The people who are into it are very eccentric and creative people and I totally appreciate that quality. We need more fearless and wacky people in the world. It keeps things interesting.
Do you enjoy fetishism/BDSM play in your personal life, and if so what are you into?
I'm honestly not into that at all really. I'm a very sexually expressive person and love to have fun with it and play around but I never got into the whole fetish scene. I have a lot of friends who are and run a lot of fetish shows and do a lot of performances in the fetish scenes in Toronto and Montreal. I just never got into it myself.
Are there any fetishes that you don't find appealing?
Yes, I personally find bondage really messed up. I don't get it, I don't mean to offend anyone but I just don't see how someone could be turned on by seeing a girl all tied up with a gag ball shoved in her mouth. I think its kind of demeaning to the women, actually. Treating them like an animal. I'm all down for kinky things but that's just disturbing. But then again I'm just not a submissive type person, so I'd never put myself in that position.
What excites you about fetish modeling?
If the photos are taken professionally, has good editing and you're working with another great model and/or photographer I don't mind letting loose. I'll do just about anything, just nothing that involves bondage. Anything else crazy and kinky is always fun though I think, I like to be a little over the top no matter what modeling work I do.
Classic pinup has become a huge phenomena lately, what about it first captured your interest?
I enjoy Classic pinup, I think I avoided it for a while mainly because it did get so popular. I like doing it once in a while though. I enjoy the pure sexiness you feel while your doing those particular shoots. Play some music, let your hair down and get right into it. Get some neat 1950's props, nice pair of pumps, and cute baby doll dress and away you go. It's that sexy girly kind of shoot every model should experience and have in their portfolio for sure!
What is it that excites you about pinup modeling?
The atmosphere I'd say. When I work I like to create a setting where I can be comfortable, let loose and be myself. The final result of the photos are always better when you're comfortable while you're shooting. I'm a very talkative and friendly person so I'm good at creating that kind of environment. It's always great when you work with people that share that same quality.
What are your favorite types of outfits to model in?
Light dresses or tight leather skirts/dresses/pants/tops. The light dresses are easy to be comfortable in and to act fun and flirty in. And the Leather outfits always make for fun, raw and sexy photos too. I like to switch roles as often as possible.
What are your least favorites?
Lingerie shoots. Mostly because that seems to be all anyone wants to shoot now a days. It's boring to me. I'd rather shoot in something more creative and fun.
Do you think pinup and fetish are becoming part of the mainstream culture?
Yeah, I'd say it's definitely created it's own culture and scene in the modeling and performing world. I know a lot of people that dedicate their lives to it and really enjoy it. That's fantastic, if you find something really love and enjoy expressing yourself, then go for it! Everyone's got their own style and it's great when you find that one thing you can relate to and feel apart of.
What kind of music do you like?
I'm a Punk Rock/New Waver for sure! Have been my whole life. I grew up listening to New wave and late 1970's punk rock. It's my way of life. Music is the one thing in my life I live for. I've been the lead singer of a few bands here in Toronto and in the GTA and it truly is my calling in life. It's all I want to do, be and feel. I've effectively been apart of the Toronto and Montreal Punk scenes for a long time now and I couldn't ask for a more interesting and eventful life. I like my music loud, my work raw, and my life free and full of fun and adventure. Music is definitely the most important thing in my life next to modeling. I'm a musician and song writer first and a model second.
What do you like to do for fun?
Go to shows, Travel, Visit friends, spend time with my dogs and party my ass off. I feel you only live life once so you might as well enjoy it and do as much crazy spontaneous things as possible cause you never know when the ride will all be over!
