VENICE, CA – With Jenna Haze’s 10-year mark in the adult business approaching this summer, the media has found yet another angle to include more of that valued Jenna coverage.
This week XCRITIC took the opportunity to feature a lengthy interview with the adult legend, exhaustively covering her storied career as a performer and the terrific success she has had with her relatively-new directing and producing duties at Jennaration X Studios.
“Jenna Haze has come full circle with her career and her claim to fame is her girl next door image that has kept her very loyal fans watching her for the past ten years,” XCRITIC’s Rayvn begins. “Jenna’s clean cut image has the male population carrying the biggest crush on her and become flabbergasted and speechless when they meet her in person at the porn events.”
From there they delve into everything from performing to directing to piracy to gender equality in the industry to the filthy sex scenes she so well known for.
“Directing is the general direction I am going,” Jenna told XCRITIC. “I really feel like I’ve spent so much time in front of the camera that I’ve kind of mastered that and so now the directing and producing and putting the DVD’s together is a whole new learning process for me. I’m finding my own directors style and stuff like that, but I don’t want to stop being in front of the camera anytime soon. There is still a lot more smut to come from me.”
Jenna is nominated for Female Performer of the Year, Orgasmic Oralist, Interracial Star of the Year and Best Anal Performer at the 2011 Urban X Awards and voting is open to fans. The Jennaration X Studios movie Legs Up Hose Down is nominated for Best Porn Movie Overall at this year’s TLA Raw Awards.

(Chatsworth, Ca) Adult Industry photographer Michael Alexander has made the move from full time Production Photographer for Penthouse and Danni.com to pursue his freelance career. “I have been thinking about this for a while, and decided it’s time to do it,” explained Michael. “I have nothing but love and respect for the crew at Penthouse and Danni’s. I learned a lot, had a blast working with them, and I hope to work with them again in the future.”
Michael has made a name for himself rather quickly in the biz. After deciding that shooting weddings just wasn’t what he wanted to do, he landed his first adult industry gig shooting events for Sugar Bear Media, and shooting content on the side. After a year with SBM, he was offered and accepted the position at Penthouse Studios. “I was shocked that it happened. It was an honor shooting for such a respected magazine and website,” said Alexander. He has also made a few appearances at adult industry events, such as Adultcon, and this years AVN and XRCO award shows.
So what’s next for Michael? “I have some projects of my own, but mainly I’m shooting content for models websites, and working with other studios. I’m looking forward to having the freedom to shoot how I want to shoot, and make my own creative ideas and visions a reality,” Michael said.
We’re looking forward to watching Michael take the adult industry by storm!

Can you give us some background on yourself and how you entered the adult industry?
I was dancing as a stripper at a local club where I lived. I started off pretty young at that – it was two months before my eighteenth birthday when I started dancing. (Laughs)
Just being around all the girls, I was like, “Oh, I’m really digging chicks.” So, I kind of started getting into girls and then I started watching a lot of porn. And I wasn’t really masturbating to it, I was just watching it and I was like, “Oh, my gosh …” I was watching a lot of Jules Jordan and I was like, “Oh, my gosh. The girls look so glamorous and beautiful.” It was almost like being a rock star with no guitar type thing. (Laughs) And then I did a couple of photoshoots with some photographers and submitted my pictures to agencies. They were like, “Get your butt to L.A. – we’ll put you to work!” (Laughs) So, the next thing you know, I was moving out to L.A. I lived in L.A. my first three years in the industry and then I moved back to the east coast. So, it’s kind of nice, because I get to travel back and forth, so I like it a lot.
Can you tell us about some of the films you have appeared in?
I have a couple of new scenes coming up for Brazzers, which I think they are from Canada – props to Canada. (Laughs)
Yep, they are.
I have a new scene released from them for Big Tits at Work. Lots of new boob movies, so all the boob fans out there will be very happy. (Laughs)
I got some new boobs a couple of years ago, so I’m starting to shoot all of the big boob lines now, which is awesome. Before I was known as like the big booty girl, but now I have some huge boobs. (Laughs)
(Laughs) Nice. Can you talk a little bit about your website?
Yeah – I own and operate my website, RichelleRyanOnline.com. I LOVE shooting for my site. I have everything up on there: Girl-girl, boy-girl, I do solo, I do cam stuff for my members, I do a daily blog and lots of candid pictures that only members of my site can see. Lots of stuff of just me around the house, of me getting pedicures – just goofy stuff, but my fans, they love that. I like it because I can get really personal with my site and I can pretty much shoot whatever I want. If I want to shoot a solo scene or a scene of me fucking in my sex swing at home, I can do that. And I think the fans like that personal touch. They like it better than, “Okay, we’re in a studio fucking on a desk.” (Laughs)
Yes, I’ve noticed that as well (about fans of the adult industry).
I love it. My fans, they E-mail me and I put my calendar for all of my feature dance dates on there too. So, I might pop up in your city one day. Maybe I’ll get to come to Canada. (Laughs)
We actually have a Penthouse club here in our city. (Laughs)
Over the course of the past year, I pretty much broke into the feature dance world, which has been awesome. I love it, because another reason I got into porn is because I wanted to be a feature. And in March, I was chosen to compete in the Penthouse Golden G-String competition, which I won the silver medal in – which was awesome. I almost fell of the stage when they called my name. (Laughs) I was in shock.
I read that you performed a very unique act for the Penthouse competition. I believe it was a Little Red Riding Hood skit?
I DID! I did Little Red Riding Hood. I had it where the Big Bad Wolf came and attacked me. I had a little toddler bed that I made and the wolf came and bit me, and I turned into the she-wolf. So, it was kind of like a stripped-out Little Red Riding Hood turning she-wolf, and then I did a milk show at the end. It was really cool and something completely different that nobody has ever done before. I have a lot of great ideas when it comes to feature dancing and I like to be able to put it out there, because beyond everything else, I think it’s such an art: Performing, putting costumes, music and stuff like that together. It was really awesome. I was so proud of myself because I was pretty much the only porn girl that was competing. Besides the porn girls who are feature dancing, there is also the showgirls, who are just PHENOMENAL. These girls can do amazing things, so it was a huge honor to compete with them.
For sure. I read about your act and thought it was very cool and unique. I had never heard of anything like it.
I was pretty proud of myself too. I was really shocked when they called my name. (Laughs)
It certainly sounded like a great performance. So you put together the entire act yourself?
Oh, yeah! I knew I wanted to do Little Red Riding Hood, but I knew I had to change it up a little bit. I couldn’t just do Little Red Riding Hood – I had to add some spice to it. (Laughs)
You mentioned your feature dance gigs. Would you like to mention some of your upcoming dates?
I have a ton of upcoming dance gigs. I was just in North Carolina this past weekend and then I go to Columbus, Ohio. I’m going to be featuring at Columbus Gold. That’s a club that I think books features every weekend – 52 weeks out of the year. Then I go to T’s Lounge in Florida, Wisconsin … (Laughs) all over the globe!
I like it a lot, though. I love being on the road, I love feature dancing, I love performing. That’s where my heart is at. I like being on the stage. When I’m on that stage, I own it. (Laughs) That is MY stage! I have a lot of fun. I get to meet the fans too and I really like that. I like talking to the fans and hearing about what kind of porn they watch, their dirty fantasies and stuff. (Laughs) I like it.
What are your aspirations in the adult industry?
Since I’ve been on the road feature dancing I’d like to continue with that. I’m pretty much just getting my feet wet this year, so I hope to continue in the feature dance world a lot. I love putting acts together, playing music and I love just being on the road. I like doing the competitions and competing. So, that’s really where I see myself going. And of course, I’m definitely still shooting videos for companies and my website – can’t forget that. (Laughs)
Who are some of your favorite performers and studios to work with?
I love shooting for Brazzers. I have lots of love for Canada. (Laughs) I love Brazzers – they are awesome. I’m telling you, every man in America must have a membership to Brazzers. (Laughs) I seriously think they do, because every time I shoot a scene for them it’s all over the place, I get recognized everywhere when I go out, at Starbucks or wherever. I seriously think every man in America has a membership to Brazzers. I love shooting for them because their scenes are always hot and I like the little scenarios and stuff they put together.
One of my favorite male performers – he was a contract guy for (Brazzers), now he just shoots for them a lot – his name is Johnny Sins. I absolutely love working with him – I can’t get enough of his cock. (Laughs) He’s definitely one of my favorites. And I like working with Mark Ashley too. I know they shoot him a lot. Girl-wise, probably Kelly Divine. I like her a lot. She’s a hottie. We get confused as twins all the time. (Laughs) She’s super hot. We actually shot content together for our websites. I’m waiting for Brazzers or someone to pair us in a movie, sort of like a double-vision type of film. (Laughs)
(Laughs) That would be interesting.
(Laughs) I know, right? Jules Jordan actually does something like that: Double-vision or something along that line. So I need to reach out to him and tell him that he needs to put us together!
Do you have a visual of where you see yourself in ten years?
Oh, wow – ten years is a ways away! (Laughs) I have a five-year visual. In five years, I would love to still be on the road feature dancing, doing contests and hopefully shooting MILF porn. (Laughs) And I hope to win some more credits in the feature dance world within the next five years. So, winning the silver medal in the Penthouse Gold G-String competition was huge. So, I hope to do more contests and win more stuff. Ten years is so far away. (Laughs)
(Laughs) I guess it’s hard to predict that far down the road.
Yeah. Oh, I’m also nominated for the Urban X Awards coming up on July 23. I’m nominated for Nicest Boobs and Interracial Star of the Year. If you’ve been following my Tweets you’ll see that I’m always plugging that. I’m like, “Vote, vote, vote!” (Laughs) I at least would like to win Nicest Boobs. That would be fucking awesome. I paid enough for them – I would hope they would win a damn award! (Laughs)
(Laughs) They can start paying for themselves.
(Laughs) Exactly! I would love for them to win an award.
What are some of your interests and hobbies outside of work?
I’m like a total girly-girl. Everything you would expect: Shopping, tanning, going out to dinner, hanging out with friends, going to the beach, lounging by the pool, traveling – all that stuff. That is totally me. (Laughs) I’m a big girly-girl. I’m not into playing sports or anything like that. I am a big sports fan. I’m a huge New York Giants fan.
I remember seeing a photo on your Twitter of you wearing a New York Giants jersey.
Yeah – I’m actually wearing it right now as a matter of fact. (Laughs) I’m rocking my NY jersey today.
What are some of your favorite television shows and music you enjoy?
I love hip-hop and pop. I’m a big house music and techno fan too. I’m obsessed right now with Lady GaGa – I LOVE her! I have every album – EVERYTHING. I’m just obsessed with her. I actually do a Lady GaGa feature show. Balls to the wall, I love her. (Laughs)
T.V. shows I’m in to – I love Dancing With the Stars. That is my show. Thankfully it’s on Mondays and Tuesdays. If it was one of those shows that was on when I was on the road feature dancing I would absolutely miss it. I LOVE Dancing With the Stars. And Jersey Shore, but that’s not on right now. Of course I would like Jersey Shore: I’m from New York and I’m Italian. It’s like you have to like it then. (Laughs)
I’ve actually never seen Dancing With the Stars, but I hear a little bit about it because I’m a big wrestling fan and Chris Jericho is one of the contestants right now.
Oh, yeah. I like Kendra (Wilkinson) from The Girls Next Door. I like it because she’s on it, so I’m rooting for her right now. I’m like, “Go Team Kendra!” I’ve been totally rooting for her. (Laughs)
Are there any upcoming projects in the works that you would like to mention?
I’m actually going to be the cover girl for Xcitement Magazine. I’ll be the May cover girl for that and I have the centerfold spread in Xtreme Magazine. Both are very big, very popular feature dance magazines and I know Xtreme circulates around the New England area. I’m just trying to cover all my bases. (Laughs) So, I have two really awesome things coming up for May and hopefully some more opportunities will come my way once those get out. But I was really excited about both of those.
Nice. Xcitement – that is the magazine Cindi Loftus runs.
I wrote for her website, Luke Is Back, for a few months. That is actually how I got my start writing about the adult industry.
I LOVE Cindi. I fucking love her. We did our interview for Xcitement Magazine about a month ago. She’s from upstate New York, kind of the same area where I’m from. I was like, “That’s why we get along.” She was so easy to talk to. We couldn’t get off the phone because we were chatting so much. (Laughs)
It’s kind of cool having a female writer in the business as well.
Yeah – she’s really cool.
Is there anything you wish to say to fans and readers?
I just want to say that I absolutely love my fans. If it wasn’t for my fans there would be no Richelle Ryan, no porn, no nothing. I appreciate all the support. The fans that show up when I’m on the road dancing – you guys fucking rock. I love you guys. (Laughs) And keep voting – I want to win Nicest Boobs really bad! I will post lots of naughty boob pictures if I win – even though I post a lot now. (Laughs) I really want it!
How can those in the adult industry reach you for bookings?
I am available through A-List Features for feature dance gigs. Dave at A-List Features is absolutely awesome. I love him. I started working with him last year and he is amazing. I’m actually going to be at the exotic dancer expo in Vegas this August and I will be signing at the A-List Features booth. So, if anybody is going to be in Vegas during that time, you should come by and say hello. I talk to everyone. I’m a Chatty Cathy. (Laughs)
ValleyBabesXXX.com books me for my porn shoots, so if any company is interested in booking me for any upcoming projects, shoots, or magazine shoots, contact Valley Babes XXX.
And then my Twitter too, because you know I’m heavily addicted to Twitter. (Laughs) I love Twitter. It’s awesome. I stalk everybody on there. I stalk YOU! (Laughs)
(Laughs) Thank you, I appreciate it. Yes, Twitter a great way to network.
It IS! It’s such an amazing networking tool. I don’t do Facebook because I had three Richelle Ryan Facebook pages and they all just kept getting taken down. I wasn’t even posting bad pictures and they just kept getting taken down, so I was like, “Fuck this.” So, I just gave up. (Laughs)
I’ve heard that has happened to a lot of adult film stars on Facebook.
Yeah, so I need to contact Facebook and yell at them – tell them to quit deleting me. (Laughs)
(Laughs) It’s the same type of situation too – the performers will say that they didn’t violate any of the rules, but their pages got taken down anyway.
I know! I’m like, “What the Hell?” It pisses me off. (Laughs) I haven’t been on MySpace since 1802, so I’m trying to convert over to the Facebook world but they keep deleting me. (Laughs)
Yeah, it’s really too bad.
(Laughs) I know, right?
Thank you very much, Richelle. I appreciate your time and it was a pleasure speaking with you. All the best.
Thank you. I’m so glad we got to chat. Have a good day!
