Given that she starred in over 200 adult films, appeared in several HBO specials where she was nude and talking to the camera the entire time, and currently hosts a podcast called “Having Sex” (link NSFWish), it’s a little shocking to hear former porn star Katie Morgan say there are still some things that can make her “jaw hit the floor.” But apparently that was the case during rehearsals for her new project, That Sex Show, a call-in advice show that will air live five nights a week on Logo starting Monday at 11pm.
She didn’t go into detail as to what some of those queries might have been, but if they gave a seasoned pro like Morgan pause, that should be an indication of the kind of atmosphere viewers can expect. Morgan will share the stage with three other panelists: L.A. radio personality Heidi Hamilton, psychotherapist Dr. Mike Dow, and psychic Dougall Fraser. And as the ads try to make abundantly clear, absolutely nothing will be off-limits.
Morgan brought her bubbly, anything-goes attitude along when she answered our “7 Questions”:
1. You’re at a magazine rack and can pick three titles. Which ones do you choose?
Cosmo, Glamour and People
2. Your DVR can only carry three shows. Besides That Sex Show, which ones do you want?
Oh no! Only three shows. That’d be like living on a desert island. I love television! Sheesh. OK, Modern Family definitely, because that’s just beautiful. I watch everything! I’m big into Justified, and loving the new season. And I can’t wait for The Walking Dead. I could name 30.
3. What has been your strangest fan encounter?
It was probably the really cute little girl out in Vegas. I was out with my grandmother going to see Bette Midler in concert, which was fabulous. Grandma loved that. And she came running up to me, “Oh my God, oh my God, I’m a huge fan!” She just kept giggling, and my grandma was like, “What’s so funny?” “Well, it’s the show. My show is funny. She likes the HBO show.” Then her and my grandma were kind of chatting, and at the end of that, my grandma’s like, “Honey, are you famous?” And I’m like, “A little bit.” That was kind of my big coming out to Grandma.
4. Tell me about a time when you were starstruck.
I was starstruck definitely when I went for my audition for Zack and Miri Make a Porno and I met both Kevin Smith and Seth Rogen in the same room at the same time. I was a little bit floored. I have been a Kevin Smith fan since Clerks, and Dogma is one of my all-time favorite movies. Honestly, that is one of the only times I have been starstruck, because I grew up in L.A. and I’ve seen people, and especially over the last 10 years as I’ve been becoming more famous I keep meeting more people and it’s definitely becoming more commonplace. But there are certainly people I’ve been watching my whole life that if I met in real life … like, if I ever met Harrison Ford, I would probably die.
5. What are three things you must have in your fridge or pantry?
Cheese. Lots of cheese, many kinds. That only counts as one, though. Sauces. Can’t live without my sauces. Ranch and barbecue. That’s still only one, though. And the bread to put them on for my grilled cheese. It’s a well-balanced diet.
6. One would guess that as far as sex questions go, you’ve heard it all. But is there anything you’re still queasy talking about?
No, that’s just part of life. There’s nothing I’m afraid to talk about or unwilling to talk about. There certainly have been topics that have come up that I’ve been kind of floored by, where it was like, “I never thought of that. Ew. But … sorry. OK.” It happens, you know. People try different things. I don’t want to give away specific details, but we’ve definitely had some questions come when we were doing read-throughs where my jaw hit the floor. So you can surprise me, but I’ll happily talk about it. But I think everybody’s shy about different parts of things. I mean, some people are shy about even their own sex life. Other people are out there straight up asking, “I have this STD, what do I do about it?” It’s completely different per person, but definitely I would say STDs are hardest to talk about, because it’s hard to keep that entertaining when it’s such a heavy topic.
It did quite a bit. It’s just that I was so busy with the mainstream stuff, I wasn’t having enough time and the schedules weren’t matching up for me to get to the movies I was getting calls for on the adult side. And at one point I was just like, “The universe is telling me to keep moving forward with the mainstream,” and I just stopped going back. But I’m definitely happy with what I have right now. I don’t know if I have an ultimate goal other than to just be happy in life, which so far I’ve been doing pretty well with. Otherwise, I’m sort of on to my second career already, and it is going smashingly with this new show. I’m happy where I’m at, and I’m only excited to see what the future will bring.
