XXX Wasteland Exclusive Interview: Sarah Vandella

with one comment

Following a year-long stint as a contract talent for Zero Tolerance Entertainment under the persona Sara Sloane, popular adult performer Sarah Vandella returned to her XXX roots in late-2010 by reverting to her former stage name and resuming her career as an independent talent.

Sarah continues to make an impact in high-profile adult productions, including roles in Smash Pictures’ Bridesmaids XXX Porn Parody and the recently wrapped The Nanny XXX Parody from Venom Digital Media.

Sarah kindly spoke with XXX Wasteland to discuss her run as a Zero Tolerance exclusive, appearing in the Bridesmaids and Nanny parodies and much more.

You can follow Sarah on Twitter under the handle @SarahVandellaXO and check out her FreeOnes page here. She also anticipates the launch of her website, SarahVandella.com, in late-2011 or January 2012.

Sarah is a recent signee of Galaxy Publicity and all interview requests may be directed to James@GalaxyPublicity.com. She is available for bookings through L.A. Direct Models.

(Special thanks to James Bartholet of Galaxy Publicity for arranging the interview)

Can you give us some background on how you entered the adult industry?

Sure. I’m from New York – the suburbs, Long Island. When I was 21, 22, I started working in adult shops. I slowly and surely was very curious about what it would be like to be on the other side.

I started dancing and really took my time; it took me about a year and half from when I was dancing to when I shot my first porno scene. So, it was definitely something that I really considered; I put a lot of thought into it. I have to say that everything was on my own terms. So, I just went for it and four years later, here I am. (Laughs) And having fun.

You were employed by Zero Tolerance Entertainment as one of the studio’s contract performers for a full year under the stage name Sara Sloane. If possible, can you tell us about your time with the company and what led to your departure?

Of course. I was approached by Zero Tolerance in October of 2009. Originally, I inquired about them doing an interactive movie for Sarah Vandella and they came back and offered me a contract. So, it totally caught me off guard and it was actually really awesome because I was totally not expecting it.

One of the stipulations to being contracted with them was that they wanted to brand and market me – hence the name change. My real name is Sarah and I’ve always been very open about that, so I wanted to keep that as my first name because obviously that is my first name and I didn’t want my fans who knew me prior to the contract to be like, “Why is she calling herself ‘Tiffany?’” or whatever the silly name is that they originally wanted to name me. (Laughs) So, basically, that’s why the name change came about.

I stayed with (Zero Tolerance) for about 13 months. It was a very nice opportunity to do some traveling and feature movies and just doing cool things. But, honestly, I wanted to continue back to the name Sarah Vandella. I wanted to go ahead and do my own website, which will be launching this year – actually, I’m thinking it will be closer to 2012, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed – and I ultimately just wanted to return to my real self. Luckily for me, I have amazing fans and everyone understood that. So, that’s kind of it in a nutshell. (Laughs)

Who are some of your favorite studios and performers to work with?

Well, one of the great perks about being under contract was that I got to pick all my talent, so when it was up to me: Raylene, Francesca Le, Phoenix Marie, just to name a few. And of course, not to leave the guys out: Mark Wood, Mr. Pete … I got to pick everyone who is the best: Anthony Rosano … those are definitely some of my favorite people to work with.

In terms of studios now … generally, since the industry has slowed down, I’m grateful to just shoot for anyone who is still shooting. (Laughs) I love to shoot. Brazzers is always a ton of fun; they’ve always got these fun little scripts and cute little ideas, so that’s fun.

We’re doing parodies a lot. I just did The Nanny parody for Venom and that was a lot of fun.

Can you tell us a little bit about that?

Absolutely. I played Val, Fran Drescher’s best friend in the show. It was certainly fun to be on set with everyone. I got to work with Tommy Pistol for my sex scene; he’s Brooklyn and I’m Long Island. So, the whole time we’re just totally going back and forth with the accent, the whole nine yards. It was hilarious. We didn’t break character the whole time. The director was great. After everything was said and done, he looks at us and goes, “You guys didn’t break character once!” (Laughs) It was so funny. So, that was definitely a fun job. We just shot that about two weeks ago.

I saw a behind-the-scenes clip some time ago – I believe you were on set for the Jersey Shore parody – where you said that you enjoyed shooting that as well because of your background.

Absolutely. That was a ton of fun to shoot. That was one of my earlier projects that I got to film for Zero Tolerance, so that was a lot of fun. Mike Quasar was on set with us and he’s one of the coolest guys in the industry, so it was non-stop laughter the whole time and they picked the cast perfectly: We had Kristina Rose as Snooki, we had Ann Marie Rios, we had Lexi Love, myself. And of course, the guys: We had James Deen, Rocco Reed and Anthony Rosano, so it was a really, really great group of people. Definitely a lot of fun.

As a former contract talent, someone who has performed with many top studios and been around the business for a little while, what is one misconception about the porn industry that you wish you could dispel?

Well, here’s the thing: It’s easy for people to be on the outside looking in. For me, I’m on the inside looking out. I think the misconception is that we’re all millionaires and that’s just not the case, I’m sorry. (Laughs) I hate to burst my own bubble, but that’s just not the way that it works. There are some studios who are really good about residuals and royalties, and I just have to tell you, it’s such a backward industry, unfortunately. It’s just the way it started and it’s the way it’s been able to become successful because the producers and the studios are the ones making all the money, right?

Yeah.

So, anywho, I don’t have money coming out of my ass is what I’m basically trying to say. I’m an independent woman, I make a living and I’m very, very blessed and grateful to be in an industry that not only is fun and great, but I do pay my own bills and I do provide for myself. By all means, it’s a job, just like when I was a secretary at State Farm. (Laughs)

Nothing is easy. It’s hard. When you shoot a sex scene, you’re doing everything twice: You’re doing your video, you’re doing your pictures. So, you have to get dressed again.  It’s like double. Actually, I just did a shoot with Lisa Ann for Brazzers and we were talking to each other saying, “If the fans only knew what we go through.” (Laughs) It’s not like it’s a bad thing; it’s just funny because you want to make it look right.

Can you tell us where you were raised and how you would describe yourself growing up?

Sure. I was born and raised in Long Island, New York. My parents are old hippies; they’re awesome. They’re just liberal, good people and they basically raised my brother and I to treat everyone how you want to be treated and to do the right thing when nobody’s looking, because that’s when it really matters. My parents are really awesome. They are still married to this day; I think it will be 37 years in February.

Oh, wow.

Yeah. And I have a brother; he’s in grad school right now. Basically, growing up, I went to great schools and I had a lot of opportunity. My parents gave my brother and I everything we could have ever wanted without spoiling us.  They always taught us the value of a dollar and I’ve been working since I was 14 years old.

I had a pretty normal childhood and we did a lot of fun traveling and things like that. That’s why when it came time to go out to California from New York, it was nothing new for me.  I had traveled a lot growing up. My dad always says I’m like him: I’m an adventurer, I like to try new things and go to new places and meet new people. I guess that’s just part of my personality. (Laughs)

What are some of your interests and hobbies outside of work?

Well, I’m a huge lover of music. I used to dabble around with an acoustic guitar years ago; it’s something that my mom actually passed down to me, which every now and then she can still bust out a Leonard Cohen tune. (Laughs) I love music, I love to be outside, I love yoga, I love just a pretty normal life. I’m not big on the “lifestyle”; I’m not into designer labels and things like that. I don’t like fake nails and a lot of makeup; that’s just not my look, you know? I’m kind of a down-to-Earth girl. I just like to wear my hair in a ponytail and wear sneakers. That’s just me. I’m like a total tomboy. (Laughs)

But, yeah: Traveling, being outside, all kinds of things like that are fun. I want to go to more music festivals; that’s kind of a goal for this year. I saw some really awesome concerts this summer: I saw Motley Crue out here, I saw Fish recently, Rod Stewart and Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty and ZZ Top … that’s definitely one of my hobbies – Hell, yeah. (Laughs)

I believe we share a passion for a TV show: Dexter. Is that right?

(Gasps) I love Dexter. I can’t wait for it to start again – October, October! (Laughs)

(Laughs) October 2, yeah.

Yeah, that’s it! (Laughs)

Have you seen the video preview for Season 6 that they have up?

Not yet. I have to check that out.

It looks like it’s going to be themed around religion, where (Dexter) begins thinking more about faith and stuff. I think the lead bad guy and his professor … he’s some sort of religious philosopher or something.

Wow.

(Laughs) Yeah, kind of interesting.

Yeah, I love all those. I like all the HBO ones too; I’m all about True Blood and all of that crazy shit. It’s fun to watch, you know? (Laughs)

(Laughs) Yeah. I like True Blood as well. Can you tell us something about yourself that you feel would surprise most people?

Hmm … I don’t know. Sometimes I get asked this question and I don’t really know what to say. I don’t really know. Sorry. (Laughs)

That’s okay. (Laughs) How about aspirations in the adult industry? Do you have any specific goals in mind or maybe a visual of where you see yourself in ten years?

Absolutely. Once I get my website up and running, I really want to focus on that as my sole source of shooting. But that’s not going to happen for two years, so it’s not like I’m not going to be shooting around. One of my goals is to definitely eventually only shoot for myself.

I’d love to be nominated for AVN Performer of the Year. That’s another goal that I have.

Ultimately, I see myself back on the East Coast years and years from now; obviously, I have a lot more that I want to accomplish out here in California. But, I see myself just kind of following my heart.  I’m just that kind of person. If I woke up in a month and said, “A, B, C and D isn’t for me,” or whatever the situation is, I will always be true to that. I always told myself that I will continue doing what I want to do until I am either unhappy or I want to move on to something else. Fortunately, I am still enjoying what I’m doing and hopefully by the time I’m ready to go on to the next chapter in life, I will feel much accomplished and looking forward to a new story.

Very nice. Are there any upcoming projects in the works that you would like to mention?

Yes, absolutely. Look for Bridesmaids XXX Porn Parody; I play the lead character, Lillian, the bride. You can also look for the Nanny parody, and that’s going to be Venom Pictures. And of course, SarahVandella.com should be out by January 2012 at the latest. So, definitely soon.

I’m still active in the industry, so you can always see me on major websites: Bang Bros. to Reality Kings to what have you. (Laughs)

You can find me on Twitter and my Twitter name is @SarahVandellaXO. And that’s basically it. (Laughs)

Awesome. To finish up, is there anything you wish to say to readers?

I just want to say to all my fans who are familiar with my work: Thank you all for your support. And to my new fans who aren’t familiar with my work: I hope you will get acquainted with it and I look forward to meeting all of you!

Wonderful. Thank you very much; I appreciate your time.

You are so welcome. Have a good one!

BSG PR Press Release: Wasteland.com Receives Nomination for Best Niche Website

leave a comment »

Wasteland.com, the Internet’s very first and largest BDSM web and mobile site, has been nominated by Ynot Awards.com this year for Best Niche Website.

The hardcore fetish site and online community has been the leader in genuine top-quality content for the past 17 years, creating high-end artistic images within a safe, unique and visually groundbreaking virtual network for the BDSM collective.

“I am delighted with this nomination, especially as I have a very fond place in my pornographic heart for YNot,” says Colin Rowntree, founder of Wasteland.com. “Back in 1995 when we were getting Wasteland.com going, the very first webmaster discussion board came online, ynotnetwork.com, operated by Rick Muenyong. The first batch of members was a group of 11 or 12 of us that were the pioneers of online adult. Just after that, the first tradeshow came to be – Cybernet Expo – run by the “grandmother” of online adult shows, Faye Sharp. Between those two entities, the foundations of Python, Silvercash, CyberErotica, Naughty.com, Wasteland and others helped each other figure out how to put porn on the internet and make if VASTLY profitable in those early days. Several years later, Faye retired from the tradeshow scene and YNot, under the new helm of YNot Bob, and later, Jay and Connor, took it over.”

Rowntree continues, “I am thrilled to see how the new YNot has carefully grown and is now flourishing. YNot is one of the cornerstones of the adult industry online. Yes, I am honored to get the nomination from them (heck, we got the “Peoples Choice” award from them in 1997!) and look forward to watching YNot continues to hold its’ stature as possibly the adult B2B portal that has a consistent track record of 16 years of integrity and service to the adult webmaster community.”

In addition to the Ynot Award nomination, Wasteland.com’s other achievements include Best Fetish Site (AVN, 2 years), the XBIZ 2010 Excellence in Alternative Erotica / Best Specialty Site of the Year and Cybernet Expo’s People’s Choice Award.

The Ynot Awards will take place at the European Summit in Prague on September 21, 2011.

leave a comment »

Los Angeles, CA – CamMansion.com is set to launch one of the most anticipated webcam websites in the world this week: A full HD 1080p, 3D option available, full screen video player and voyeur mode featuring the most beautiful cam models in the world.

That’s just the beginning.

After a successful soft test run in July, CamMansion.com will feature gorgeous adult models roaming throughout a spacious Las Vegas mega-house and backyard pool, partying, playing and performing live in front of dozens of cameras on the property.

The company will start contests and giveaways in September so the users can enter for a chance to win a weekend getaway with their favorite model as well as VIP events.

Pierre Vincent, Director of Operations for Silent Stream Media and ten-year adult industry veteran, talks about the successful launch and response to CamMansion.com.

“The response to the video has been tremendous,” said Vincent.

David king and company have worked with some of the most prolific tech experts to create a state-of-the-art website that is offering full HD and 3-D options, Voyeur Mode (where the viewer watches others’ private sessions), full screen video player capability, and of course the most beautiful and adventurous cam models available online, anytime.

To celebrate the success of the webcam site’s initial rollout, CamMansion.com owner Silent Stream Media will present a Grand Opening party on Friday, August 26 at Chateau Nightclub & Gardens at the Paris Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The event will be hosted by former Charlie Sheen Goddess, adult starlet and current Playboy cover girl Bree Olson.

CamMansion.com billboards and video ad campaigns featuring adult star Teagan Presley have been spotted all over Las Vegas, igniting so much interest in the white-hot site that over 80,000 views and thousands of pre-registration signups were logged in during the month of July, alone.
