JJ: Hi Samantha, welcome to Inside the Porn. It's a pleasure to have someone who loves their work so much.
How did you get into the adult industry?
Samantha: I always had an interest in modelling and did a lot of trade shoots before turning 18. Once I was legal, I changed my status on model mayhem to shoot nudes and began booking artistic nude photo and video shoots as well as fetish shoots. I was working a crappy part time job at minimum wage and modeling was paying the bills. My girlfriend at the time and I had recently broke up and I had always had the contacts to get into porn. I'll admit I initially got into the industry for personal motives, I was just looking to eat as many pretty girls' pussies as possible. I did a BJ scene right before I went back home after my second trip, and decided I wanted to continue to pursue a career in the industry.
JJ: Well if there was ever a reason to get into the industry then that's it. Eating as much pussy as possible haha. You're my new icon haha.
What's the best thing about the industry?
Samantha: It's hard to answer this question, because there are so many things I love about it. The flexible schedules and travelling, meeting new and interesting people...I think most of all, I like that I feel comfortable and free to be my oversexed self in this industry. I've been able to explore myself and my sexuality in so many ways thanks to this industry in a safe and beneficial way. I get to explore fantasies with tested, literal "fucking" professionals, get paid, AND see it for years to come?
JJ: I can see that you absolutely love you work and it's great to see how much you enjoy what you do.
What's the worst thing about the industry?
Samantha: The worst thing about the industry for me has to be seeing people that are involved for the wrong reasons. Choosing to do porn has to be a calculated decision, it will change your life, and it takes a different kind of person to choose to pursue this work and not lose themselves in it. The appeal for young girls to finally be free adults making money, able to come and go in beautiful California as they please can easily turn into a vicious cycle of partying, addiction, bad tastes, feeling worse, and doing it all again. I feel bad for those people, and hope that anyone thinking of joining the industry does as much research as possible and goes slowly to be sure that it's right for them.
JJ: What if the funniest thing to happen to you whilst working?
Samantha: The funniest thing that happened on set...I can't say I've ever had anything "pee your pants" funny on set happen before, but I always get amusement when male talent find out how sensitive my nipples are haha.
JJ: Now the intrigue of how sensitive your nipples are is almost too much to bare haha.
What are you doing at the moment work wise?
Samantha: I am planning to have a lot of new content out this year, types of scenes that fans haven't seen me in just yet. I want more men, give me all the blow bangs and orgies! I've been working a lot more with Kink.com and hope to continue, as I LOVE BDSM and want to expand my work to more hardcore and intense shoots to show my fans that side of me. I recently moved and am able to webcam, do Skype shows, and shoot clips and customs with more ease. I will be updating my clips4sale and many vids store more frequently with both a sex and a fetish clip per week. I do not shoot cream pies on professional porn shoots, only in my personal life. So far I have only been selling private collection photo sets, but will soon have a few cream pie clips in my stores and available for purchase.
JJ: Sounds like you're having a very busy year and you've got lots of things you want to do. That can only mean more amazing scenes for your fans to watch.
Where can people find you online?
Samantha: My Twitter @SamanthaHayesxo is the main hub where I have all my links and updates
My email is email@example.com where I accept gift cards, skype shows, and custom clip requests
I primarily use cams.com for my web camming, both solo and Boy/Girl shows. Those links are:

I also use Nite Flirt for phone sex and Skype shows with phone: https://www.niteflirt.com/users/Samantha+Hayes
JJ: Well no-one can ever say they don't know where to find your work. You're all over the place which is amazing.
What's the best thing about sex?
Samantha: The best thing about sex is being in the moment with your partner(s) bodies connected and intertwined, feeling each other's pleasure build and release.
JJ: What really turns you on?
Samantha: The big turn ons for me are Kindness, openness, honesty, and most of all teasing
JJ: Well it's nice to see all my traits are being recognised haha.
An important question now, what's your favourite film?
Samantha: Pulp Fiction is my favourite film for sure.
JJ: Great choice. You can never ever go wrong with a Quentin Tarantino film.
Where is your favourite place to go on holiday?
Samantha: Literally any national forest with free or cheap campsites
JJ: I wouldn't have guessed you were an camping kind of a girl.
Tell me one thing about yourself I wouldn't know just by looking at you?
Samantha: I think most people I encounter in every day life would be surprised to find out I'm in porn and that I love it haha.
JJ: You have a very innocent look about you so I wouldn't guess you did porn.
What's been your biggest achievement in life or work so far?
Samantha: I think my biggest achievement was when I finally decided that what other people think about me doesn't matter and began to put my happiness first.
JJ: That's a massive achievement. Being able to get to that point is something a lot of people never achieve so well done to you.
What's been the biggest thing you've had to overcome?
Samantha: I'd say the most challenging thing for me has always been getting too involved in other people's emotions and issues...I am very empathic and came to the realization that a lot of people were taking with little given in return because I felt so strongly about helping them through their problems.
JJ: Being very empathy can be a tough thing to deal with because everything can affect you. But it appears you've found a balance in your life.
What's the best thing a fan has done for you?
Samantha: The best thing a fan has ever done, oh gosh. I can't say any one specific fan or gift, because I appreciate everything my fans do, but I have to say one event sticks out really clearly in my mind. I'm used to not really getting presents on my birthday, but when I went back to the model house this past November I had a little pile of boxes stacked up with my name on it. I cried. It was honestly the sweetest thing ever and completely took my breath away how kind and generous people can be. Before getting into porn, I didn't think about potential fans in the sense that I figured people would follow my Twitter if they saw my movies, but I had no idea they would have such a profound impact in my every day life. I have so many amazing people who tell me to have a good day, ask how I'm doing, and I've fallen in love with the amount of connection I get to have with so many amazing and genuinely kind people.
Jack: It sounds like your fans play a massive part of your day to day life and that is amazing to see and hear.
What's one piece of advice you'd give to someone getting into the industry?
Samantha: My best piece of advice for someone looking to get into adult entertainment: THINK.
Think about everyone you've ever known in your life. Your family, your friends, your fellow classmates at school, your past employers, and anyone you could possibly meet in the future. Think about someone you do not by any means want to know you do porn.
Can you accept them finding out?
Can you handle a potential melt down, fight, or broken relationship?
Are you prepared to tell potential future partners, and handle a cycle of pretending to be okay with it, getting jealous, then eventually breaking up because they aren't okay with it until you find the right person?
Do you want a job in teaching or with children in the future? Kiss that goodbye. But while we're on the subject of job fields after porn, are you prepared to deal with discrimination in the job search process and potentially being fired down the line?
Can you emotionally handle the risk of STDs and putting away a nest egg in the event you contract something serious and are no longer allowed to shoot? **Unlikely due to our strict testing regime but seriously, could you handle that?**
Is your skin thick enough to handle hate online from strangers?
Are you on hard drugs and just trying to make easy money? You become a risk to other performers and your addiction will spiral out of control before you know it, and you'll only regret it-please, seek treatment then decide if you want to perform.
In conclusion, being a porn performer is NOT for everyone, and it's important to think long and hard about why you want to get involved, what your goals are, and what you want to do after porn-LONG before you decide you want to quit.
JJ: I think that's the most amazing answer and some amazing advice. You've raised many questions that everyone should ask themselves.
What do you think you'll do when you leave the industry?
Samantha: Well I plan to buy a house next year and would like to fix it up and rent it out to fellow webcam girls. I'd like to get involved in real estate down the line, although my ultimate dream would be to open a holistic health center.
JJ: Wow, you have big dreams and goals and they are very inspiring to see. If anyone can achieve those things it's you.
Finally, what's the weirdest rumour you've heard about yourself?
Samantha: Weirdest rumor was in middle school, I was accused of wearing a padded bra (which I wasn't) and all the girls kept giving me crap about it, and then the very next week every single one had a padded bra.
JJ: I'm not surprised people wanted to try to be like you. I can't imagine you'd ever need a padded bra though haha
It's been an absolute pleasure talking to you and doing this interview. I look forward to more of your work soon.
