Porn star Jessica Jaymes writes: "I am 35-22-33 standing at 5'7 in. tall. I was born in Anchorage, Alaska and moved to Arizona at the age of 10. I was very involved in playing the piano, tap dancing, and honors art-drawing being my favorite. I attended different schools every year of my life. Everything from military to catholic. I had always had a passion for children and held jobs in day cares and preschools."
Jessica Jaymes (www.jessicajaymes.com) called me back Tuesday night, September 16, 2003, after getting home to Arizona from ten weeks on the road.
Luke: "When you were a little girl, what did you want to be when you grew up?"
Jessica: "I wanted to be a fighter pilot. I was inspired by Tom Cruise in the movie Topgun. My father pushed me to do that. I ended up becoming a schoolteacher. I taught grades 4-6 (ages 9-12) for three years. I started teaching at age 18 after taking an extensive six-week training course. I taught at a Montessori school. It isn't a public school and it isn't a private school. All they required is a six-week extensive training course. The fighter pilot thing was more my father's idea. I always worked with children growing up. I have a Jekyl and Hyde persona."
Luke: "What about other people who were important to you as a child? Did they have specific expectations for you?"
Jessica: "I didn't give a flippin' anything about what other people thought. Nobody had an influence. I didn't care what they thought. I was a free spirit. I moved out at age 15. I graduated high school at 16. I did a couple of years of college on my own. I just did everything early in life."
Luke: "What kind of crowd did you hang out with in high school?"
Jessica: "An eclectic crowd. I was a chameleon. I blended in with everyone. I fit into the skaters. People who liked Depeche Mode, The Cure... It was the grunge era. I died my hair pink. I bounced around among different cliques."
Luke: "How did you get into this industry?"
Jessica: "If they paid teachers enough, I probably wouldn't be here. I would dance at night at a club across the street from where I taught. It's like that movie Varsity Blues. I would get fathers who would come into the club. It was, I won't tell on you if you don't tell on me. I had this father come in every Thursday night and get lap dances. His wife would come in and help me with the literary study groups every Wednesday.
"Then I started dating somebody who published an adult magazine (Playtime magazine out of Arizona in January of 2002). It progressed, like smoking pot leads to crack."
Luke: "When you gave lap dances, would you talk about literature?"
Jessica: "I didn't think they wanted me to talk at all. Some of the parents that came in got a kick out of talking about school stuff in the club. We had some weird folks."
Luke: "Did it change how they treated you?"
Jessica: "They kissed my ass because I had something over them. I could
tell their wives that they were coming into the club."
Jessica: "One year ago. They threw me in as a feature right away because I played it up as though I had been doing all this stuff when I'd been a schoolteacher all along. They threw me in as the lead in Sexhibition 9 for Sunshine Films. It was a blast playing that character. I felt right at home once I got into it. "I've done about 40 films. I was on hiatus because I had to host a show for Playboy TV called Totally Busted. It's a hidden-cam show with the same crew that produced Spy TV and Punk. It lasted six weeks. I host it along with Mary Carey, Kaylynn and Janelle. It's like Candid Camera gone XXX. It will air the beginning of 2004."
Luke: "What do you love and what do you hate about the video business?"
Jessica: "Oh my gosh, there are so many things I love. You've opened up a whole new can of worms now. Are you prepared?" Luke: "Yes." Jessica: "I love that it is not monotonous and boring. I'm not sitting behind a desk from 9-5. Growing up, I was always artistic and expressionistic and an exhibitionist. This gives me the chance to portray that. I'm pleasantly surprised by the crews and sets. Everyone is nice and down to earth, which makes my job easier. "There's not much that I dislike - that there are many young young girls coming in at age 18... (Laughter) I'm kidding."
Luke: "What are your ambitions?"
Jessica: "Porn seems to have a short shelf life. Your looks only last so long. I'm going to kick some serious ass and then I'm going to start my own production company. My big kick is being behind the camera. It's art for me. I want to retire a happy woman in the Bahamas."
Luke: "Would you like to get married and have kids?"
Jessica: "Eventually? Sure. Kids are not my thing right now. I'm too selfish now to have kids. Too busy. I do not believe in marriage for anyone under 50."
Luke: "Have you had rich men say, I want to take you away from all this, baby?"
Jessica: "No. And if they did, I would have to decline. I have to live my life and do what I want and what makes me happy. It looks like I am getting too deep for you."
Luke: "What do you love and what do you hate about your body?"
Jessica: "I love my really expensive breasts. I don't hate anything about my body. I'm looking to tone up. I'm looking for that just-right personal trainer."
Luke: "Tell me about your breasts."
Jessica: "I had them enhanced when I was 21-and-a-half years old. I did two years worth of research. I went around to various strip clubs and about 80% of the girls who I liked their breasts had them done by Dr. Wesley Wilson. So I went to him. I canceled twice because I was too petrified. When I did get the surgery, I thought, for about three months, I was going to die. I wouldn't have done it if I had known it was going to hurt that bad but I'm glad I did it.
"I had extremely tight nipples because I worked out a lot. They did the incision underneath the muscle. They were tight. It was a long time until I could stand up and walk with my shoulders back. I had to sleep sitting up. It was painful.
"My measurements changed from a 34B to a 35D. That was it. Nothing else moved. A lot of girls gain weight. I probably lost weight because I couldn't hold my food down."
Luke: "Did it change your personality?"
Jessica: "It made me more confident. I wasn't able to be confident when I went shopping for clothes. I'd get depressed. Now I can fit in bikinis. It allowed me to be more comfortable with myself.
"Am I the most boring interview ever?"
Luke: "No. Did it change the way men reacted to you?"
Jessica: "What do you think?"
Jessica: "Ok Sherlock Holmes. You answered that one. I was blonde for seven years until becoming a brunette at age 19. It was like emptying out all the bullsh-t. I had no sh-tty guys hitting on me anymore. It was all business guys."
Luke: "I'm looking at your photos here for journalistic purposes. What do you think about when you are being photographed?"
Jessica: "I'm totally tuned in to the camera. I never think about anything else. I'm into astro-projecting. That means I'm thinking about what the other person is thinking of me. Even when I'm doing films, I'm constantly thinking about how the fans are seeing me. I'm not sure the fans want to hear this. I'm not getting into anything I'm doing. I'm thinking about how it is looking. I'm not thinking about lunch or the girl I'm having sex with. Every move I make is calculated."
Luke: "Do you ever orgasm while doing a video?"
Jessica: "For journalistic purposes? Yes, I orgasm every time."
Luke: "No you don't. You never do. Most girls don't."
Jessica: "No, I don't. I never have."
Jaymes only has sex with women on film but in real life she is bisexual. "It goes back to the short shelf life thing. I'm going to string this out as long as I can. You know how Janine has sex with women all the time and that is it? When that is old, I'm going to dip into having sex with men and start my own production company. I'm trying to stretch it."
Luke: "Do you think you could live in Los Angeles?"
Jessica: "If I was insane. I'm probably going to purchase a little condo in Los Angeles so I can have a home base, a sanctuary to go to when I'm done shooting."
Luke: "Are you insane?"
Jessica laughs: "I'd have to be to do what I am doing."
Luke: "Have you ever felt you were going insane in this industry?"
Jessica: "I feel like I am going insane every once in a while when I'm shooting all the time. When I'm doing my Playboy show, it goes 15 hours a day, six days a week. Then they need me for a movie. That takes up my Sunday off. Or at night. So I'm working around the clock. But I'm the little engine who could. I just keep on going."
