It´s a pleasure for Xczech Magazine to interview the dutch star, sportswomen and writer VERONA VAN DE LEUR, and thank her very much for this friendly dialogue.
How would you define yourself in a few words?
I’m open-minded, goal orientated. I have my own opinion, I know what I want and go 100% for my goal.
Why do you decide to be an erotic model and when do you start this job?
I started in 2011 with a good contract as a webcam model, later started my own company (also webcamming & adult pictures and movies).
Could you tell us a brief introduction to your new Book “Simply Verona”?
My book is about my life, from childhood with family, winning medals in gymnastics, to the homeless living on the streets for 2 years, I spent 72 days in jail, had a lawsuit against my parents, I talk about how I decided to start in the erotic business and all my other choices in life. (good and bad)
When and How was born your passion to write that book?
A man named Kurt contacted me if I was interested to write a book about my life (My book was already in Dutch, but released 5 years earlier) I wanted to update that story and also write it myself *and in English.
What mean for you to be part of HISTRIA BOOKS (GAUDIUM)?
It’s always nice if there is a company that is willing to allow you to publish your story in a book.
Where readers can preorder your book for now?
It’s already available since March 1, 2020, and everyone can order from Amazon, eBay, Google play, but also from HistriaBooks.
I knew you were named Dutch Sportswoman of the year 2002. Could you tell us a bit about your emotions?
It’s a big prize and an honor, but at the time I was 16 years old (the youngest athlete ever winning this prize in Holland). But now years later I realize how special it is.
Which are for you the advantages and disadvantages to working as nude art erotic model nowaday, in your country even?
It’s not fully accepted, not in Holland and I think nowhere in the world. But everybody watch it, and that’s why we can still make a lot of money, the other side of the medal/disadvantages is that you cannot start a “normal” job after this career. Everyone will look back at what you did. Even when it’s 100% legal and you pay all taxes. Now I experience that it’s easy to start in this industry but it’s hard to get out (it’s like a criminal record).
Which was your best professional experience? Had you any bad experience also?
The first year as a webcam model I won in Holland the prize as the best new performer. Which was pretty cool. Bad experience I don’t have that much, maybe only some people messaging if they can have sex with me.
What is for you the erotism? Consider you that´s an art, pleasure of life, human natural tendency, healthy, taboo, etc?
Of course, you can do this job only if you like it and if you are not shy, you must feel strong in your body and mind, but for me, it was always just working, making a living. I had my own rules like: only making content with my boyfriend (as a photographer, or actor) and that keeps me going and loving my job. I like to experiment from art nude to BDSM.
I saw that you have appeared in covers of several Internationals magazines as ARTISTIC GYMNAST. So that; It attracts you to be famous and popular around the world?
I am famous in the gymnastics world, and Holland, but I can still walk outside without giving autographs, LOL. But being more famous gives me a better contract and a better living, so yes I think anyone would be attracted by it.
How many languages do you speak?
Dutch, English, and I can understand most German and a few words in French.
Have you some spiritual Beliefs?
Have you plans or projects for the future?
I’m working behind the scenes for a healthier environment for kids in sports (any sports not just gymnastics) and I’m the ambassador from a homeless program in Holland, and after my book, I ‘m also working on a theater tour…
To conclude, I thank you so much for this nice and interesting interview for Xczech Magazine and desire you all the best wishes?
Thank you so much, Alejandro, for the interview.
