(Special thanks to Acme Andersson of Rising Star PR)

Let’s start at the beginning: Can you tell us how you entered the adult industry initially?

I was living in a dorm in college and my best friend came and she squatted in my dorm – Jessica Robbin. We were trying to make money to get our first apartment and I was doing some fetish stuff and some webcamming. This agent contacted her and was like, “You should just come and talk to us about it.” She asked me to take her to meet the agents and they were like, “You’re pretty, too. You want to do it?” And I was like, “Sure, why not?” (Laughs)

And you have been involved since late-2012, is that right?

Yes – November 2012.

In that time, who have been some of your favorite studios and performers to work with?

New Sensations is really fun. Dogfart was really fun. Naughty America was nice and Teenfidelity.

Talent would be Bruce Venture, Erik Everhard, Jack Napier and Shane Diesel for guys. For girls, I don’t work with very many girls, but Veronica Rodriguez, Mercedes Lynn, Rilynn Rae – those are really all my females. (Laughs)

Are there any talent or companies you haven’t yet had the opportunity to work with, but wish to in the future?

I would like to work for Kink, definitely – that would be awesome. Digital Playground would be nice, too, because they do some really cool things. That’s really it, actually.

Do you have any specific aspirations in mind looking down the road as far as your career goes?

No, not really. I just keep taking it day by day. I really didn’t think that I’d come this far or go this long with it, anyway. My agent told me a long time ago, he was like, “You have tattoos, you ruined yourself. Don’t expect longer than six months.” And it’s just been, “Oh, well, then.” And … here I am (Laughs), doing it for a year and nominated for an AVN award. And I’m just like, “Oh, goodness.” (Laughs)

roxannerae101People seem to be more open nowadays about tattoos in the industry. It doesn’t appear to be as big of an issue anymore.

Yeah, I noticed that. When I went out to L.A. the first time, everybody was like, “Oh, you have tattoos!” I started coming out more and more and nobody seemed to care anymore. (Laughs) But it’s fun. I love it.

You will be signing at the AEE Expo next month, is that right?

I will be. I am mortified. (Laughs)

(Laughs) Because it’s your first convention?

Yeah. And shockingly, I’m not really good with large crowds of people. So, we’ll see how that goes.

And you will be signing with your agency, Ideal Image?

Yes, Ideal Image.

Will you be attending the AVN and XBIZ awards ceremonies as well?

I’m not going to the XBIZ Awards, just the AVN Awards.

And you have been nominated for an AVN (Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene), right?

Yes – Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene with Veronica Rodriguez and Mercedes Lynn for Bang Bros. That was, like, my third month in the industry. I was really surprised.

Oh, wow.

(Laughs) Yeah.

With your time spent in the adult business thus far, is there maybe one misconception about the industry from those outside of it that bothers you?

Well, now it’s kind of hard (Laughs), but for one, they think we’re loaded with STDs, which we are not. I mean, accidents happen and it’s a job and it’s a risk that we have – we don’t fall off ladders or slip and fall. So, it happens sometimes. But, it’s really safe regardless.

Also, people think that just because we do porn that we’re willing to have sex with everything with a pulse. It’s kind of annoying because when I tell people what I do, they’re like, “Oh, so, you know … what’s up?” I’m like, “Nothing – we’re not having sex.” (Laughs)

May I ask a few questions about yourself as a person if that’s alright?

Yeah, sure – why not? (Laughs)

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

I was raised in Boca Raton, Florida, but I moved to Fort Lauderdale a few years ago. I like it here better, so I tell everyone I’m from here. (Laughs)

I’m an only child. I was kind of weird in middle school – I was the emo kid. But then high school came around and I was popular in high school, so that was a big change.

My parents are married. I love them. (Laughs) I was a good student. I don’t play any sports and I started playing the violin. That’s really it, I guess. (Laughs)

roxannerae102Yes, I read on your Twitter account recently that you take violin lessons.

Yes. I have one today, actually, at 4:00. (Laughs)

Is that something you became interested in recently?

Yeah, that’s recent. I decided I needed a hobby, so I chose an instrument. (Laughs)

Very cool. What are some of your other interests?

I go to fetish parties; that’s the main thing I’ve been doing. They’re kind of cool. But that’s really it. (Laughs)

I read in a recent interview that you are in school right now to become a mortician, is that correct?

Oh, yeah – that, too. That’s not really a hobby. (Laughs)

No.

Just doing what I have to do. Yeah, I want to be a mortician in a few years. (Laughs)

Have you had an interest in that field for a while?

Well, at first, I was going to be a teacher when I first got into college. And then, everyone found out I did porn, so I was like, “I need to find something new.” I was looking into things and this girl told me her mom was a mortician. I looked into it and I was like, “Wow, it’s really cool.” So, that’s what I do. (Laughs)

How about favorites – favorite movie, T.V. show, musical artists and things like that?

My favorite movie of all-time is Scream – the original one. I know it’s lame, but Matthew Lillard is my favorite actor of all-time. I don’t care – I love him. (Laughs) Anything he’s in, I love it. He’s amazing.

T.V. shows, I love South Park and all those adult cartoon shows like Family Guy and everything. And New Girl – it’s with that Zooey Deschanel. That’s a good show. Oh, and The Middle – that’s good. (Laughs)

Music, I like rap and I like old rock, like 60s rock. I love The Doors – I love The Doors. And then, 90s, like Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Offspring. No techno – I don’t like techno. (Laughs)

Is there one thing about yourself that you feel would surprise many people?

I guess that I’m socially awkward with large crowds – I get nervous. (Laughs)

Are there any current or upcoming projects in the works that you would like to mention?

Yeah. I’m planning my first gangbang with New Sensations. I’m doing that in the middle of January; I don’t know when it’s coming out. But, yay! (Laughs)

Is there anything you wish to say in closing to readers?

Just that I love what I do and I appreciate the time that you’ve taken to get to know me. That’s pretty much it. (Laughs)

Thanks for taking some time out today to speak with me. I congratulate you on everything – you’ve done pretty well for yourself thus far and I‘m sure there are more great things ahead.

Oh, thank you! That means a lot, actually.

I wish you the best moving forward with your career. Have a great day and a good violin lesson later. (Laughs)

Thank you. (Laughs) You have a great day and a happy New Year.

XXX Wasteland Exclusive Interview: Angela White

with one comment

001_angela_white_Melbourne native Angela White has taken the adult industry by storm on both sides of the world for a full decade. Since her XXX debut in 2003, White has earned scores of fans in the United States in addition to becoming widely recognized as Australia’s most famous porn starlet.

White’s popularity has been acknowledged by top industry news outlet XBIZ, as the organization recently appointed her to serve as official Trophy Girl alongside fellow performer Jessa Rhodes at the 2014 XBIZ Awards ceremony January 24 in Century City, California.

Angela kindly granted XXX Wasteland an interview to discuss her role as XBIZ Awards Trophy Girl, mainstream acknowledgement, her adult career moving forward and more.

You can visit White online at her recently launched official website, AngelaWhite.com. Follow Angela on Twitter under the handle @AngelaWhite and check out her FreeOnes page here.

First off, congratulations on being named one of the official Trophy Girls for the 2014 XBIZ Awards show in January. How did it feel to receive the news and are you excited about the role?

Thank you so much! Yes, I am so excited that XBIZ chose me as one of the official Trophy Girls along with the beautiful Jessa Rhodes. It’s such an honor to be the first Australian performer to take on the duties.

You initially entered the erotic industry in 2003. Can you tell us about your path into adult entertainment?

I wanted to get into the adult industry after my first exposure to pornography at around the age of 14 years old. I collected magazines because they were easier to get my hands on than tapes. I started with magazines that I could get at the newsagency; mags like Penthouse, Playboy and The Picture. Then, an older boyfriend introduced me to Score and Voluptuous magazine, which I couldn’t get my hands on as a minor. The models had similar physiques to mine, so I thought they might be interested in shooting me. I waited until I was 18 years old and sent The Score Group some nude photos a friend had taken of me. They organized my flights and accommodation to the States immediately. And the rest is history.

What do you consider some of your greatest memories and proudest moments pertaining to your career?

Launching my official website has definitely been the highlight of my career to date. Being able to produce my own content has been such an amazing experience. I’ve learned so many things and met the most amazing sex-positive people.

You recently appeared in an ABC 2 documentary titled The Vagina Diaries. Can you talk about the program and your involvement in it?

The documentary explored the rising trend of labiaplasty in Australia. I was called upon for an interview because of the claims put forth that pornography is responsible for the trend. I spoke about the role of Australia’s laws in creating a culture that lumps shame on the bodies of women. The laws require magazines to censor the inner labia of models, and this is the case for women’s magazines like Cosmopolitan as well as Penthouse. I also pointed out that the size, colour and shape of a porn performer’s labia has no impact upon their success. If you take an intimate look at the vulvas of the top female performers, you’ll see more variation than similarity.

002_angela_white_Do you have any further aspirations for your career in the future?

Absolutely! But I’m going to keep quiet on my plans. I have lots of things in the works …

You recently launched an official website, AngelaWhite.com. Can you tell us about the site and what those who sign up for membership can expect?

The site is updated every single week with new and exclusive content. Every month there is a new Solo, Girl/Girl, Boy/Girl, BTS/Candid photo and video update. Plus, I do free live webcam shows for members, where they can get to know me and I have live show archive where they can view and download the show after the fact. All videos can be streamed and downloaded in 1080p and photos sets can be viewed on the site or downloaded as a zip folder.

You are widely recognized as Australia’s most well-known adult star. Can you talk about the XXX landscape in your country and discuss the differences between Australia and the United States as it relates to the industry?

The industry is a lot smaller in Australia, but is growing rapidly. There are quite a lot of feminist producers pushing boundaries and creating avant garde, alternative visions for what pornography can be. There is also an emerging scene of producers who are filming higher-end scenes in the unique Australian landscape. There is great potential for Australia to be a leader in the adult world, but the strict laws in regards to the production and distribution of hardcore content continues to cause problems for the industry.

Is there one misconception about the adult business that you wish you could dispel?

I’m tired of hearing the same worn-out radical feminist assertion that performers are abused and degraded in the industry. One of the tenets of feminism is that women should have a voice to speak for themselves, yet certain rad-fems are not only claiming to speak for us, but are actually speaking over the top of us.

Many performers have publicly spoken about their positive experiences in the industry and they are not in the minority. It’s incredibly offensive and patronizing that certain feminists ignore the voices of the women they claim to protect. I’m not an apologist for the adult industry, and if any company or producer mistreats a performer or crew member they should be called out for it and legal action should be taken. However, I would like to dispel the misconceptions promulgated by rad-fems that women don’t have agency in their decisions to enter and remain in the adult industry. And P.S. – I’m a pro-sex feminist.

011_angela_white_x_rocco_reed_02What are some of your interests and hobbies outside of work?

I’m sexually motivated, so when I’m not having sex on camera, I like to be fucking off camera. I also like to read, spend time at the beach, go out for coffee, go to the gym … anything but shop.

Is there one thing about yourself that you feel would surprise a lot of people?

I’m actually quite shy. But they always warn you to look out for the quiet ones …

Are there any current or upcoming projects in the works that you would like to mention?

At the moment, I’m focusing on making my website as good as it possibly can be. The feedback so far has been amazing and fans are welcome to continue to send me suggestions. You can contact me on Twitter.com/AngelaWhite or members can chat to me during my live shows.

In closing, is there anything else you wish to say to readers?

I would like to thank my fans for their support over all these years. It really means so much to me. I hope you all continue to grow with me on this sexual journey.

leave a comment »

538890With a full year of adult industry experience to her credit, adult performer Brianna Brooks continues to build a brand within the business following appearances for top studio names such as New Sensations, Immoral Productions and a feature role in DreamZone Entertainment’s Rambone XXX parody.

Brianna kindly spoke with XXX Wasteland to discuss entering the world of adult entertainment, her blossoming career in front of the camera and much more.

The popular Brooks will be signing at the Adult Entertainment Expo next month in Las Vegas. You can follow her on Twitter at @BriBrooksXXX and check out the starlet’s FreeOnes page at this link.

Brianna Brooks is represented by Ideal Image Models. Please visit the agency’s contact page here to book her for film and print work.

(Special thanks to Isiah James of Ideal Image Models. Photo #1 courtesy of DreamZone Entertainment. Photo #4 courtesy of Brianna Brooks’ Twitter account)

Let’s start at the beginning: Can you tell us how you initially entered the adult industry?

Yeah. I started out doing webcam through streaming online. I’d been doing that for quite a while and then Isiah, actually – Ideal Image – found me on Facebook and asked me if I would be interested in meeting with them, if I was interested in modeling and stuff. So, I told him, “Yeah, definitely,” that I would love to meet with them. I talked with them and it sort of all just panned out. They asked if I would be willing to pretty much do porn (Laughs) and I said, “Yeah, sure.” It’s fun doing it on cam, so why not do the real thing?

And how long have you been a part of the adult business?

It will be a full year this month, actually.

Have you enjoyed your time in the industry thus far?

Yes, definitely. It’s been a lot of fun. Knock on wood, I haven’t had any bad experiences. (Laughs) Everyone I’ve come across and worked with and met has just been amazing.

BriannaExcellent. Who have been some of your favorite studios and performers to work with?

Let’s see … everyone has just been so nice. I really liked working with Johnny Castle and Johnny Sins. Brooklyn Chase, she was just so sweet. Of course, Heidi Hollywood – she’s my best friend. (Laughs)

I actually just interviewed her a couple of hours ago. (Laughs)

Oh, did you? (Laughs)

Yeah.

Yeah. She’s amazing. I just love that girl. (Laughs)

Are there any talent or companies that you haven’t yet had the chance to work with, but wish to in the future?

Yeah, definitely. I think Wicked would be really fun to work for. I like what I see from them. And just more with Brazzers – I love working for Brazzers. It’s just all-round a great experience to work for them.

I’m drawing a blank on who else. (Laughs) Really, anybody who will take me.

Do you have any long-term aspirations for your career looking down the road?

I’m just kind of going with the flow, just going where it takes me. Everyone has been so great to work with. Ideal has gotten me plenty of work. I have a regular full-time job, so they try and get me as much work as they can on the side and because of my schedule, it’s great that they can do that for me.

Long-term, I don’t really know. I’m already 28, so I don’t know how much longer I will be popular in the business. (Laughs)

Will you be attending the AVN and XBIZ Awards ceremonies next month?

Yes, I definitely will. I’m so excited.

And you will be signing at the (AEE) Expo as well?

Yes.

BXD4owkCcAAZ34PFrom your time in the industry thus far, is there maybe one misconception about the adult business from those outside of it that bothers you or that you wish you could dispel?

Everyone on the outside of the business, I feel they don’t see what we do – that we get tested. I always feel that they think we’re just these big sluts and it’s terrible because that’s not it at all. I think people just don’t think about us as real people that way.

May I ask a few questions about yourself as a person?

Sure!

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

Yeah. I was born and raised in Southern California. Just a small family and nothing really super spectacular. I love my parents and it was great growing up. I have a brother, just me and him, and I’ve always just kind of been outdoorsy and have a close group of friends. There’s really not too much to talk about growing up (Laughs), just hanging out with friends and doing normal things.

What are some of your interests and hobbies?

Really, I like outdoors things. I love the sun. I like hiking. I love to just be with friends. I like to go out dancing.

I really don’t have a specific hobby. I definitely enjoy running. I’ve done a half-marathon and that was really exciting. So, just really being active, I guess.

How about favorites – favorite movie, T.V. show, musical artists and things like that?

Favorite color (Laughs) would have to be for sure, pink. Favorite movies, I have quite a few favorites. I love Old School. Some of my other favorites would be How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days – total chick flick. I mostly like comedies. I absolutely love The Campaign; just stupid comedies. (Laughs)

T.V. shows, you can always find me watching more reality shows like on MTV, like Real World and stuff like that. I actually don’t really watch a lot of T.V. There is a handful of shows I’ll watch if I have time, but usually I don’t get stuck in front of the T.V.

Is there one thing about yourself that you feel would surprise many people?

I guess, actually, that I’m shy (Laughs) because nobody would believe that. I’ve definitely come out of my shell, obviously, quite a bit to be able to do what I do, but I’m actually really a shy person. If you asked me to give a speech in front of an audience, I couldn’t do it. But, for some reason, I can fuck on camera. (Laughs) So, that would probably be surprising to a lot of people.

BZzlO35CUAAu4H4Are there any current or upcoming projects in the works that you would like to mention?

No, actually, nothing right now. I don’t have anything on the books. I’m not really doing much other than just getting ready for AVN. So, I’m definitely excited for Vegas.

Will that be your first time attending the awards and the Expo?

Yes, definitely. It’s going to be my first time. I was just getting started last year, so I didn’t go because I’m like, “Well, no one is going to know who I am.” But now, I have some fans, so I’ll be really looking forward to meeting them and just having fun at the Expo.

Yes. I’ve never had the opportunity to get down there myself, but those few days always sound like a blast.

Yeah. It seems like a huge party and a good time, so I’m looking forward to it.

To finish up, is there anything you wish to say in closing to readers?

I would just like to say thank you for all the support and all the love that the fans give me. Hopefully, everyone continues to watch my stuff. It’s so much fun (Laughs) and just thank you, really.

Great. I appreciate you taking some time out to talk with me tonight. Have fun next month and have a great night.

Thank you so much!

XXX Wasteland Exclusive Interview: Heidi Hollywood

leave a comment »

IMG229924833Rising adult starlet Heidi Hollywood has enthusiastically jumped into the world of erotic entertainment since entering the business earlier this year. In addition to roles for numerous studios such as Devil’s Film and Lethal Hardcore, Hollywood has popularized herself by becoming a mainstay in “Porno” Dan Leal’s Immoral Live shoots.

Hollywood is nominated for Adult Video News Most Promising New Starlet honors at the organization’s annual awards ceremony next month in Las Vegas. You can vote for Heidi at this link.

Heidi kindly spoke with XXX Wasteland on the afternoon of December 17 to discuss her AVN nod, future career plans and more.

You can follow Hollywood on Twitter under the handle @HeidiHoXXX and check out the actress’ FreeOnes page here.

Heidi Hollywood is represented by Ideal Image Models. For film and print bookings, please visit the agency’s contact page here.

(Special thanks to Isiah James of Ideal Image Models. Photo #3 courtesy of Heidi Hollywood’s Twitter account)

Let’s start at the beginning: Can you talk a little bit about how you entered the adult industry initially?

I was doing adult webcam, so I was having a lot of fun on there doing it with a friend. My friend was approached by an agent to try porn and as soon as she did it and said she loved it, I had to get in on the action. (Laughs) I really wanted a piece of the pie. And I’ve been loving it ever since.

And how long have you been a part of the industry?

Just about a year now. I started at the end of January this year.

In that time, who have been some of your favorite studios and performers to work with?

Immoral Live has definitely done a lot for me. Evasive Angles has done a lot for me. Those are the two major ones that I’ve had a lot of fun with.

Heidi 2Are there any talent or companies you haven’t yet had the opportunity to work with, but wish to in the future?

I still haven’t worked with Hustler or Bang Bros and I’d really like to. Those two are on the top of the list right now; I really want to get into Hustler. I’m surprised I haven’t done Bang Bros. (Laughs)

Do you have any specific aspirations in mind for your career looking down the road?

I sort of just want to keep going with what I’m doing as long as I have the privilege to and as long as I’m wanted because I love doing it so much. I’m nominated this year as a new starlet, so hopefully in the next year, I can become a bigger name.

I understand you will be signing at the AEE Expo next month in Las Vegas, is that right?

Yes, I will be there. I’m so excited; it’s my first time.

Excellent. Will you be attending the XBIZ and AVN Awards ceremonies as well?

Yes, because I’m nominated. So, hopefully I’ll win (Laughs) if I get enough votes.

And that is for AVN’s Most Promising New Starlet category, is that correct?

Yes, that’s correct.

In your time as part of the adult industry, is there one misconception about the business from those outside of it that bothers you or that you wish you could dispel?

I just think that if you like it, then awesome, and if it’s just not your cup of tea, then either watch something else or don’t watch that. Because if there is something you don’t like about it, there are a ton of other people who do like that aspect of it.

I never had any problems with my parents or anything like that. I’m a really fun person and I get a thrill out of doing it, no matter what kind of scene it is, whether it’s anal or I.R. or whatever.

BZuCLERCIAAfuyVMay I ask a few questions about yourself as a person?

Of course!

Great – thanks. Can you tell us where you were raised and how you would describe yourself growing up?

Yeah. I was born and raised in San Diego, California, most of the time with a single mom. It was just kind of school … I had a little sister I took care of when my mom was working. I enjoyed getting out and doing things with friends.

I went to school for a little while after that and realized that it’s not really my thing to be locked up somewhere for work. So, that’s why I’m doing porn now. (Laughs) I’ve always been that kind of need-to-get-out sort of person.

How about interests and hobbies?

I love to read. (Laughs) I’m kind of like a book nerd. I like to cook. I like animals – I have two dogs and I like to take them out on walks in the dog park and dog beach, all that sort of stuff.

I really like the outdoors. I like hiking and stuff. Pretty much anything – I really have a good attitude about anything, really.

How about favorites – favorite films, T.V. shows, musical artists and things like that?

My favorite shows are the vampire shows. True Blood is one of my favorites. Walking Dead is like my favorite show ever. I love all those AMC/HBO dirty shows that are kind of R-rated. I love all that.

I love the funny shows, too – the Cartoon Network/Adult Swim shows that are kind of inappropriate after midnight. (Laughs) I love to go to bed to those. I’m kind of a cartoon person.

And how about music?

I love anything and everything, pretty much: country, rock, hip-hop, rap. I love music.

BJeEf59CYAAH3HIIs there one thing about yourself that you feel would surprise a lot of people?

Gosh, I’m so open. Before I got my boob job less than two years ago, I would never show any of my body out in public. I’m so open now. Ever since I got my boobs done, I felt like I was so free, like I could just be me. It just freed me, getting a boob job. I used to cover myself up. I can’t even imagine going back that way. (Laughs)

Are there any current or upcoming projects in the works that you would like to mention?

I do have one coming up and it had to be rescheduled. So, hopefully that’s really soon. And on Thursday, I’m doing Fuck a Fan on Immoral Live – the “Porno” Dan show – on Streamate. So, fans can sign up for that through Twitter.

In closing, is there anything else you wish to say to readers?

I just really appreciate all my fans and anybody who does anything – watches my videos, follows me on Twitter – which is at @HeidiHoXXX. Twitter is the easiest way to get a hold of me, talk to me, see updates – everything. I’m on there all the time.

I just appreciate you all – you are the reason I work the way that I do. I do it all for you guys and if you guys want me, I’ll keep on busting my ass and popping my pussy to do it. (Laughs)

(Laughs) Well, I appreciate you taking some time out tonight to chat with me. Have a great night and good luck next month.

Thank you so much. Have a good one!

leave a comment »

BXytllOCUAAS4_0Blonde bombshell Emily Austin arrived on the adult entertainment landscape earlier this year with an incredible slam and has proceeded to land a tremendous name for herself with both industry personnel and fans alike.

(Special thanks to Sandra McCarthy of OC Modeling. Photo #3 courtesy of Emily Austin’s Twitter account)

First off, congratulations on being named Trophy Girl for next month’s AVN Awards ceremony. How did it feel when you received the news that you had been selected?

Thank you so much! I’m very excited and honored to be named the 2014 AVN Trophy Girl. I’ve been in the adult film industry for less than a year and to be a part of something this big is wonderful!

Can you tell us how you entered the adult industry initially?

I’ve been dancing for four years, so crossing into the adult film industry was an easy option. I had the support of my husband and found the right people I wanted to work with.

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

Honestly, I don’t have a favorite performer or company that I’ve worked with. Everyone has been so amazing and I’ve walked away from every set with a great experience.

Are there any talent or companies you haven’t yet had the opportunity to work with, but wish to in the future?

If it were up to me, I would give every top company a shot.

Do you have any specific aspirations in mind for your career?

I’ve always had an interest in the adult industry. To me, it’s not about the trophies or titles. It’s about enjoying what you do. As long as this industry will have me, I plan on sticking around.

vrct_003I understand you will embark on a feature dancing tour in January. Would you like to tell readers more about that?

I start feature dancing in January. I began my journey in the adult industry as an entertainer and I’ve always enjoyed it. Becoming popular in the adult film industry has given me the chance to travel to clubs and show love to my fans.

Is there one misconception about the adult industry from those outside of it that you wish you could dispel?

Most people think that because I do porn, it’s on my mind 24/7. For some that might be true, but for me, it’s not. I enjoy sex, but my life doesn’t revolve around it.

Let’s learn a little bit about Emily Austin, the person. Can you tell us where you were raised and how you would describe yourself growing up?

I was born in Dallas, but raised in a very small town outside of College Station, Texas. My family is very conservative and strict, but I have great support from them.

What are some of your interests and hobbies away from work?

When I’m not working I spend as much time with my husband as I can. We’re big Notre Dame fans, so we always go to ND football games. I have a huge love for animals, so I often volunteer at local animal shelters.

Let’s talk favorites: Favorite movie, T.V. show, musical artists, etc.

Favorite movies are The Wedding Singer, Casino, Goodfellas and of course, Rudy. Favorite TV shows are The League, Sons of Anarchy, The Walking Dead and Real Housewives. My music selection ranges from George Strait to Drake to Atreyu.

Is there one thing about yourself that you feel would surprise people?

I surprise people by my manners. I still believe in saying, “Yes, sir” and, “No, sir.” Some in the industry joke and tell me my kindness and sweetness will go away, but this is my personality and I’m not changing it for anyone.

BXuGnAWCQAE0fY2Are there any current or upcoming projects in the works that you would like to mention?

I can’t wait to attend AVN and Exxxotica in 2014. I’m also excited to shoot more scenes and most importantly, meet my fans. 2014 will be a great year!

In closing, is there anything you wish to say to readers?

In my first year of porn, I have accomplished so much. I’ve met some incredible people. I look forward to continuing my career. My outlook on this is industry is if you stay away from the negative and just enjoy what you do, you will be just fine.

Thank you, I appreciate the time and wish you the best moving forward with your career. Have a great day!

Thank you so much for this interview and I look forward to working with ya’ll as my career continues to grow!

Let’s start at the beginning: Can you tell us how you initially entered the adult industry?

I’m really from Scottsdale and I was at a strip club, and I met a feature dancer – her name was Sarah. I asked her what she did for a living and she recommended Ideal Image Models and they’ve been professional with me ever since.

And how long have you been a part of the business?

About two months now.

Have you enjoyed your time in the industry thus far?

Oh, of course. Yes.

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

That’s a tough one. I really liked working with Jon Jon. That was pretty recently – he’s a very good performer. And I had fun on my Blacks in Blondes scene; that was fun as well. I haven’t really done too many scenes yet, so I’m still anticipating more. (Laughs)

Are there any talent or companies that you specifically wish to work with in the future?

Oh, most definitely: Vivid, Wicked, Penthouse … I want to work with them all. (Laughs)

Do you have any long-term goals or aspirations in mind for your career looking down the road?

I do want to build a name for myself, yeah.

Will you be attending the AVN and XBIZ Award shows next month?

Yes, I will be.

_MG_1862Are you looking forward to those events?

Most definitely, yes.

Will you be signing at the AVN Expo as well?

Yeah, I will be. I’ll be at the Ideal Image booth signing autographs.

Is there one misconception about the adult industry that bothers you – whether before or after you became a part of the business – from people outside of it that you wish you could dispel?

No, not really. Uh-uh. Not at all.

Can you tell us a little bit about where you were raised and how you would describe yourself growing up?

Growing up, I wasn’t promiscuous at all. I was actually more like a tomboy. Since I’ve gotten into the industry, I’ve been able to explore myself sexually, I guess, more.

How about interests and hobbies outside of work?

I love listening to music and I like working out, exercising. And I like watching Turner Classic Movies.

How about favorites – favorite movies, T.V. shows, musical artists and things like that?

Movies, my favorite actress is Audrey Hepburn and my favorite actor is Jimmy Stewart.

Movies, I like a lot of older movies. And I could sit down and watch a whole slew of movies if I had time. (Laughs)

And music, I love all genres of music except for not really too much country. I don’t really like country too much.

Is there one thing about yourself that you think would surprise people?

I love making people laugh. The people around me, they laugh a lot. I’m pretty funny. (Laughs)

Are there any current or upcoming projects in the works that you would like to mention?

I’m supposed to have a Hustler scene pretty soon. And my first mainstream scene was actually yesterday – I did a commercial for Sybian. That was fun. (Laughs)

BZtNsGwCAAA27SaIs that something you are interested in exploring as well – the mainstream side?

Yes, most definitely.

Is there anything else you wish to say in closing to readers?

Just keep a good look out for me. (Laughs) I plan on doing a lot more good things. Fans can keep up with me through my Twitter at @JennaIvoryXXX and Instagram at www.Instagram.com/Ms_JennaIvory. If you want me for your next production, contact my agents at Ideal Image Models.

Terrific. Thanks for taking some time out tonight to chat with me, I appreciate it. I wish you the best with your career moving forward. Have a great night.

You’re welcome! Thank you. You, too, hon.

Let’s start at the beginning: Can you tell us how you entered the adult industry initially?

Yeah. I started in the adult industry this year – April. I was actually contacted by the agency I’m with now. They had found me through Model Mayhem and they saw that I had worked with Playboy. They offered me more opportunities to work with (companies) like Penthouse and Hustler and I was, of course, like, “Yes, I would love to!” (Laughs)

Probably a month later, after going back and forth talking and deciding, “Okay, we’ll figure out a date for you to come out,” and if this was the right thing for me and everything, I finally flew out. One of my first shoots was in Phoenix for FTV Girls and after that, I’ve been doing porn since. (Laughs)

In your time as part of the industry, who have been some of your favorite studios and performers to work with?

It’s hard to say … it’s always such a tough decision to pick a favorite. (Laughs) Each one is special in their own way. But I know that a company I work with quite often is Porn Pros; they’ve been really good to me. And one of the male performers I’ve worked with often for them is Danny Mountain. I guess because I’ve worked with them so many times, they are probably in my top five. (Laughs)

chloeamour101Are there any talent or companies you haven’t yet had a chance to work with, but would like to in the future?

Yes, most definitely: Brazzers, Digital Playground, Vivid. There’s a few more on my list. Sometimes I just have to think because there are so many, but just to name a few, those.

Do you have any specific aspirations in mind for your career looking down the road?

Yes, most definitely. I definitely plan on staying in the adult industry for a while. I plan on hopefully making my name a business. I hope to win some AVN Awards someday and be a really well-known, recognizable star in the industry. That would just be amazing – awesome.

I look forward to attending all of the shows and conventions – for example, Exxxotica and stuff like that. I haven’t even gotten a chance to go to any of those things and I would love to because I would want to be able to interact with my fans and connect with my fans as well.

So, lots of different things. And eventually, I would like to branch out into mainstream work as well. I still kind of do a little bit of that, but I would like to be one of those girls who does both.

Are you going to be attending the XBIZ and AVN Award shows and Expo next month?

I know I’m definitely going to be attending the AVN Awards Show in January. And XBIZ, I would like to. I would probably have to ask my publicist for a little bit more information about it, but as long as the dates and time don’t conflict with work, then most definitely I would like to be there.

And you are nominated for the fan-voted AVN Most Promising Starlet Award, is that correct?

Yes, yes – I was really excited to hear about that. (Laughs) I hope I win, of course, but (Laughs), yeah, I’m nominated for that.

You are also featured in a spread for the Holiday issue of Hustler, is that right?

Yes. It just came out last month on the 26th. So, I was really proud of that. When I find out I’m nominated for something or being featured in something, I always just feel really happy because it just lets me know that I’m going the right path and this is the right decision that I made for myself. All I have to do is work hard and then reap the benefits from it. So, I’m really blessed in that sense to be chosen for those things.

Based on your time in the industry thus far, is there maybe one misconception about the adult business from those outside of it that you wish you could dispel?

Yeah, there are. There are quite a few, I guess, and I mean, I’m sure whoever made that misconception, it started from somewhere. But, it doesn’t characterize every single person in the industry.

The whole thing about how everybody is sleeping with each other, that’s not necessarily true. (Laughs) And how they make adult film performers seem careless in that sense because there are certain situations that have happened. I’ve learned a lot about that and even myself as a performer, we all try to take care of ourselves and we’re all very serious about our careers – for the most sense, anyway.

It kind of can be a little frustrating sometimes when someone will find out what I do, sometimes they can turn the other way and think, “Oh, she doesn’t really do anything, she just has sex for a living.” We do work hard and our jobs aren’t that easy. We didn’t just have things handed to us.

chloeamour102Can you tell us where you were raised and how you would describe yourself growing up?

Yes. I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. I would definitely describe myself as a Texan girl, but more of like Tex-Mex, I’d say, because I’m not very country. (Laughs) But I do have a little bit of a Latina flare to me. I don’t speak Spanish fluently, but there are just certain things that I’ll do.

I actually was back home for about a week and there are just certain things you can do over there that people will understand compared to being in L.A., a big city, where they are like, “What are you talking about?” (Laughs) So, I definitely still have that Texan part of me and always will and love it.

I didn’t go to the same elementary school, middle school, high school – I didn’t have a silver spoon in my mouth. I went to different schools in different sides of town in the city.

I remember when I had changed schools and was about to start junior high, it was a really big awakening for me because I was ten going on eleven and I thought the world was just this big bubble of beautiful people, friendly people, candies and rainbows. I end up having to transfer schools because of my mom’s job and I ended up being on a not-so-nice side of town and kids were mean and people were fighting, cussing and doing drugs, so I was just totally overwhelmed by that. But, at the same time, I’m happy because it kept me grounded and just made things more real.

Then, going into high school, I transferred schools again. I went to Alamo Heights High School and it’s actually considered a smaller city than San Antonio. When you pass the school right before you get there, it says, “Welcome to Alamo Heights, the city of beauty and charm.” So, we lived a totally different experience.

I guess in a way I wish I would have had a more simpler upbringing; not so many struggles with my peers or financially or whatever. But, I’m happy for it because it’s made me the person I am now and it’s made me work hard and had me meet great, amazing people you can trust and love and care about.

Moving out here to L.A., I’ve really enjoyed it because I’ve met a lot of creative, ambitious people as well. It’s just really awesome. (Laughs)

Absolutely. How about interests and hobbies away from work?

I love to travel. I love going to concerts, anywhere from a rock concert to an electric concert – electronic music, DJs and stuff. Now, I’ll go to more of the big shows, like fly out to Miami and go to the Winter Music Conference, different things like that. So, I love going to big shows.

But also, I appreciate going to smaller shows like indie rock shows at a smaller venue because I lived in Austin, too, for about six months and if you were living downtown, you could just walk to the venue and go see a badass band and only pay like twenty bucks. It was just more personable.

So, I really like a lot of music and movies. I love going to festivals and stuff and traveling, dancing, singing. (Laughs) I like to cook. I like to do outdoorsy stuff like hiking. Meeting new people, socializing and just always brainstorming about things innovative – I don’t know, I can be kind of nerdy in that sense. (Laughs)

How about favorites – favorite movies, T.V. shows, musical artists and things like that?

Well, I’m definitely addicted to reality T.V. (Laughs) But, as far as shows, I don’t watch too many T.V. shows, but some that I do get hooked on can be anywhere from Devious Maids or True Blood, all the way to a show like Intervention. I like all different types of stuff.

3Is there one thing about yourself that you feel would surprise people?

Yes. As far as sexually, I didn’t lose my virginity until I was 18 and I didn’t give a blowjob until porn. (Laughs) As far as a lot of other sexual things I’ve experienced, it wasn’t until porn.

The fact that a lot of people who meet me, they might think I’m crazy and wild and dress really slutty or whatever. But then they meet me and they’re like, “You are totally the opposite from what I would think someone who does porn is.” So, it’s kind of funny how that works out. It makes me happy, though, because I’ll notice I get a lot of gratitude from people. They are like, “Wow, you really carry yourself in a good way.” It makes me feel better and it kind of makes me feel like I’m changing that misconception of people (in the adult industry), you know?

Yeah, absolutely. Are there any current or upcoming projects in the works that you would like to mention?

Yeah. I have some different stuff coming up. There are shoots I have done with Hustler that aren’t out yet.

Some other stuff that is going on other than the AVN fan voting is I found out that I was Hotbody Hottie of the Month for December, which is pretty cool. I’m possibly going to be working for Adam & Eve soon, which is exciting because I have never worked for them before and they are a great company. And I have a few more shoots coming up with Diabolic.

As far as mainstream goes, I’ve been working with this company called Naughty By Vapor, which is an E-juice company. I’m somewhat of a brand ambassador with them in a way, but we’re all kind of working on a project together with other girls in the industry, which a lot of these girls are way more accomplished and famous than I am. So, I’m really, really excited to be a part of that. I don’t want to give too, too much away because we’re still working on it, but there is new stuff coming up.

To finish up, is there anything you wish to say in closing to readers?

Vote for me! (Laughs) I know I’ve gotten a few questions from people on Twitter and stuff, people curious about the industry. I think that if anybody is ever curious about doing it, they should just try it because you never know – it might be something that you love and grow a business from. It’s one of the best things that’s ever happened to me.

Terrific. You have certainly done very well for yourself thus far.

Yeah. I guess another thing I would say: I don’t have a specific deadline for it, but I am starting to work on building my own website and my own content. So, I think that would be something important for the fans to want to know.

Absolutely. Thank you for taking some time out to talk with me tonight. I wish you the best moving forward with your career. Congratulations on everything and have a terrific day.

Thank you so much. Thanks for taking the time out to talk with me as well.
