PHILADELPHIA — Digital Playground contract performer Stoya is profiled in the current issue of Philadephia CityPaper. Writer Matt Stroud met with Stoya at Exxxotica NY and a follow-up interview in Philadelphia.

"She chooses to live here, in South Philadelphia, where she hangs out, and walks around among all of you, just another pretty girl in virtual anonymity," Stroud points out in the article.

In the interviews, she discusses topics including relationships ("I don't. Do. Relationships."), the adult industry, feminism, her relationship with her parents and their relationship with her work.

Speaking of telling her mother about working in adult, Stoya said, "She flipped the fuck out. She was like, 'I can't fucking believe you would let someone exploit you like that — what are you doing? Are you on drugs?' ... I guess after like a month we could talk without her screaming at me. And then I got her to listen. I said, 'Well, what's your problem with it?' And she was like, 'You're being exploited. You're being exploited by men.' And I was like, 'Actually, [Digital Playground is] female owned and operated. And I want to do this. They won't make me do anything I don't want to.' And she was like, 'Well, I'm worried about your health.' And I was like — I gave her my best answers. And, thank God, she was willing to listen."
