Porn Star Heidi Van Horny Is Having Sex with 23 Men to Celebrate Her 23rd Birthday

By Shawn Binder

Most people celebrate their birthdays with close friends and cake, but French Canadian porn star and college student Heidi Van Horny isn’t like most people—instead of having a party for her 23rd birthday on February 20, she will live stream herself having sex with 23 men.

Porn company AD4 Distribution will host the live stream, but Heidi will handpick her 23 sex partners at casting calls. Unlike most porn videos and cam-girl sessions, the live stream will be free and will only feature porn industry rookies screwing Heidi. (Money will be made after the live stream ends, when AD4 Distribution uses the live stream footage to create a commercial porn film.)

This week, I spoke with Heidi to talk about the live stream's unconventional business strategy, her decision to celebrate her birthday with 23 dicks instead of 23 candles, and why she considers the live stream a “big princess party.” 

VICE: How did you decide to sleep with 23 men on your 23rd birthday?
Heidi Van Horny: It was just something crazy I thought about. It's a typical thing for the girls in American porn to have men as their candles on their birthday. It was a joke based off of that.

It’s still a pretty big deal. Did you really only start working in porn a few months ago?
It was a coincidence that I got started in porn. A porn company was holding porn auditions, so I went—it all clicked for me. I started two months ago on December 5, and my first scene was a lesbian scene with Alyson Queen. It wasn’t my first girl-on-girl experience, but I enjoyed it, since Alyson and I both have a fun sense of humor.

How will the live stream differ from your previous work in porn?
It’s not like a gang bang or a fuck fest—excuse my French—like people are expecting it to be. There is going to be a lot of narration by two stand-up comedians. It will be hosted, and it will be full of surprises and jokes. It’s my big princess party.

Are you going to have a cake at the party?
Yes. We have a cake planned. It might not be a cake the men are expecting. Don’t expect typical candles on this cake.

Is every guy having vaginal sex with you, or are you only blowing some guys?
It will not be all penetration. Time is money, so we need to be able to pay the cameraman, the editor, [and other production members], so due to that, it can’t be a 24-hour thing. Each man will be with me for five minutes.

What happens if they aren’t able to come within five minutes?
The point is not to make the men come; it’s to have a fun princess fantasy of mine come true.

Have you already finished the audition process?
We have to go about choosing them now. We had 1,000 applicants, and it doesn’t matter to me if they have muscles or huge dicks—I just am able to look at someone and know if there is an attraction there, so I’m going to be selecting all the men.

Will the men in the video be tested for STDs?
Yes. People teased me, saying, “23 men? You’re going to get a disease for your birthday.” But I’m having all the participants get tested and wear protection.

How does the STD screening process work in the Canadian porn industry?
In Quebec it is not the same as in the states. In the USA all porn stars are tested because the porn companies require it; in Quebec the companies are not allowed to ask for medical records and don’t regulate how often porn stars are tested. We get around that by asking individually to see our scene partner’s test results—I’m tested every three weeks.

Do you have any favorite male porn stars?
From Quebec I would definitely say Jessie Storm.  I don’t care about male porn stars too much because they’re almost objects. I don’t mean that in a mean way—they’re there to compliment the women. It’s not that I don’t care about them as humans. In porn the goal is to make the woman look sexy, so men are there for my fantasy.

You're all about putting girls first. 
I consider myself a feminist, because all the men are at my feet. They all want to buy me gifts just to be in my movie, and in a way, that is powerful to me. I feel like I run the world because men are clamoring for me, not the other way around. Feminists say porn isn’t a good thing, but I feel like a queen when I’m on camera.
