Apolonia Lapiedra is Spain’s fastest rising porn star, but not long ago, she lived and worked in rural Spain picking fruit and vegetables. Her life took a very different turn after she met the infamous porn producer Ramiro Lapiedra, who is now her boyfriend.

In this episode of VICE Broadly Meets, we meet Apolonia during one of her shoots to talk about sex, fame and going your own way.

One of the consequence of pornification – the cultural process by wich pornography slips into our everyday lives as a commonly accepted element –  is that it made more common and natural for women to watch and enjoy porn. 

Yet, behind the camera, the vast majority of the industry is still mainly dominated by men.

Ramiro Lapiedra, Apolonia's boyfriend and producer, directs her during a scene. 

A lot of porn these days is filmed not on a dedicated set, but in the apartments/homes of directors and other industry folks. Apolonia shoot took place in her flat in the center of Barcelona and was directed by her boyfriend, Ramiro Lapiedra.

"After all, your parents chose their lives, so you get to choose your own.
Everyone has to choose their own way."
