I arrive on set at noon. I ask director Corey Jordan how many scenes he's shot. He says none. Alex Sanders laughs.
Ariana, a nice Jewish girl, is the star of the show. Her inner voice leads her to have sex with various men and women until the sun goes down.
Gianna Lynn (Filipino) walks in carrying a herbal tea bag, lunch, and other stuff. She's been in porn for ten weeks and has done over 30 movies. She's a non-exclusive contract girl for Corey Jordan's (Jill Kelly's ex-husband, Dale's brother, and nice Jewish boy) No Boundaries Entertainment.
Gianna's out of action for a few days. She's been pissing blood.
I walk outside with Gianna and sit in the shade on a plastic lawnchair beside the pool.
Duke: "When you were a little girl, what did you want to be when you grew up?"
Gianna, 20: "I wanted to be everything from... In second grade, I wanted to become a dentist. My mom bought me all these books. After that, I wanted to become an FBI agent, an archeologist and all these crazy things. I think if I wasn't doing this, I'd be training to be a fire fighter."
Gianna was born in the Phillipines and moved to California at age four.
Duke: "Did you know [growing up] that there was a big porn industry in the Valley?"
Gianna: "No, I was pretty sheltered growing up. I went to a private Baptist school."
Duke: "What kind of crowd did you hang out with in highschool?"
Gianna: "I didn't like cliques. I tried to get along with everybody."
Duke: "How would you describe your best friends [in highschool]?"
Gianna: "They were goofy. We grew up in a strict crazy Christian environment. We had to wear long skirts. I was a cheerleader. My skirts were down to my knees. We had to find ways to make light of the situation."
Duke: "Did you hate it?"
Gianna: "Oh no. I try not to hate anything. Hate is such a strong passionate word.
"They give you so many barriers it's easy to fall into this utopia of, oh G-d, I don't want to talk s---, but it was one of those places where, I don't want to say brainwashed... You have so many rules it's hard not to become what they think is an ideal person."
Duke: "Obviously you didn't."
Gianna laughs: "Obviously not."
Lynn says she was a bad student. "I always messed around in class. I was always doodling."
Duke: "What were you expected to become?"
Gianna: "It's a stereotypical asian family. They always believe you should become a doctor. A lot of my family on both sides has degrees in the medical field. They wanted me to do that and I didn't want to.
"I went to a Baptist college. That lasted for a semester. I'm planning to go back to college to finish my degree [in Art]. Hopefully people won't recognize me in classes. That would be awkward."
Duke: "How did you get into porn?"
Gianna: "I used to work for a mortgage company. I had a friend (One day I was walked by her cubicle and she said, you should call this guy) who introduced me to a producer who introduced me to Naomi Marcella who introduced me to Foxxx Modeling.
"I'm only exclusive to [No Boundaries Entertainment] to direct, do anal and DP.
"I create a fantasy character called Gianna Lynn on-screen. I don't become her off-screen."
Duke: "Have you lost any friends over [porn]?"
Gianna: "Yes. A lot. It just shocked everybody. Everybody is like, 'Ohmigod, I can't believe she is doing that.' It's so taboo.
"You won't understand what it's like in the industry unless you're in it. Otherwise, it will always be a mystery.
"The friends that I lost, I used to be upset about it. I used to be heartbroken. I see it as a truthseeker. You will find out who your true friends are.
"It is surprising to me the people who have stayed friends. There are people who I expected to never talk to me again.
"I've had a few friends who started crying [when they found out Gianna was doing porn]. In those situations, you don't know what to do. 'I'm sorry, but I'm still going to do it. This is my path.'
"I don't do drugs. I don't party crazy. I stopped partying as much because of [porn]. You should take care of your body especially because it is going to get you work."
Duke: "How did your family react?"
Gianna: "They don't know. My [15yo] brother knows and a few cousins. My brother said, 'I still love you but that's disgusting.' Now he's over it. He jumps around and says, 'How was work today, ha ha?'"
Duke: "What do you think your parents will do when they find out?"
Gianna, her voice quiet: "I think they will disown me. They're really religious. I feel terrible. They still think that I'm working at my old job. It's hard for me to hide it because I'm never at work. My mom asked me a few days ago, 'Where do you get all this money to buy your stuff?' I was like, 'I'm a hard worker.'
"I just bought a new truck. A 2005 Dodge Ram with a heavy engine."
Gianna lost her virginity at 17 to her future fiance (a relationship of three years that ended a year ago). "He hates me now. I just had lunch with his best friends and [the friend] was telling me all these things he was saying. He calls me a whore.
"Please. At least I do it for the money. He does it for free. What's the difference? We're still having sex regardless. At least I'm being professional about it.
"He's a loser."
Duke: "Do you think he's renting your movies?"
Gianna laughs: "I know his mother's friends are.
"Yeah, I believe he's watching my movies right now."
Gianna says she hasn't dated anyone since she entered porn. "It's kinda sad. You feel lonely. I know I have to take care of myself first before I can take care of others. If I'm in a relationship, I'm faithful and I'm loyal and I devote all this attention to my boyfriend. I don't think I can do that now. I'm so driven. I want to focus on my career. I want to make good movies."
Gianna says she slept with fewer than ten guys before she entered porn.
Duke: "What do you do with your spare time? You must have more than ever before."
Gianna makes a guilty laugh. "I hang around. I have lunch with friends who work. I like to write in my journal. I like to enjoy life. I love days like this. I like taking walks in the park. I'm just a dork like that."
It's a sunny 70 degrees.
Gianna has six tattoos. She shows me one of a dragon. It's on her pelvis. She had it done over the name of her ex-fiance. "It symbolizes the wrath of a relationship," she says.
She keeps pointing. "I got this one last year when I was drunk in Miami."
Duke: "How did your parents react to your tattoos?"
Gianna: "They got used to it eventually. At first they were like, ohmigod, what have you done to your body? Now it's like, oh, another one."
Duke: "Do you find it addictive?"
Gianna: "Yes, but I can't get anymore. My agent says, if you didn't have all these tattoos, you'd be getting twice as much work. I say, they're me. What am I going to do?"
