Today I had the pleasure of possibly one of the straightest talking women I've had the pleasure of interviewing. She's got the looks, the brains and the honest approach to guarantee she'll always be successful. The amazing Sam 38G
JJ: Welcome to Inside the Porn. It's a pleasure to have you with us. Ive been excited to feature you for a long time.
How did you get into the industry?
Sam: It was the money which attracted me to the industry if I'm honest.
JJ: Well the money is a very compelling reason to be attracted to the adult industry that's for sure.
What's the best thing about the industry?
Sam: Being my own boss, creative freedom, constantly having to learn new skills such as marketing, editing and sales and the money haha.
JJ: With a job that can offer all that freedom and self development it's easy to see why you enjoy it so much.
What's the worse thing about the industry?
Sam: The often repeated inane questions.
JJ: Obviously not meaning these questions haha.
What's the funniest thing to happen whilst working?
Sam: My fans are a hoot, we crack up on cam all the time.
JJ: Well in that case I should be in your cam room a lot more often.
What are you doing workwise at the moment?
Sam: My site, Sam38g.com VOD stores, my brand and camming.
JJ: Lots of things there to keep you very busy indeed.
Where's the best place to find you online?
Sam: www.Twitter.com/Sam38g is where all my links are etc.
JJ: What's the best thing about sex?
Sam: The intimacy of it all.
JJ: What really turns you on?
Sam: Wit and charm
JJ: You must be turned on like crazy now with chatting with me haha.
The question I love asking most of all, what's your favourite film?
Sam: "Some Like It Hot"
JJ: Oh now that's a classic. A personal favourite of mine too.
Where is your favourite place to go on holiday?
Sam: It doesn't matter as long as I can get lost and explore a new area or spend time with family, loved ones and friends.
JJ: Great answer. You sound quite adventurous which is always a good thing.
Tell me one thing about yourself that I wouldn't know just by looking at you?
Sam: My fans know me, nothing about me would surprise them.
JJ: It's good that your fans know you so well that nothing would surprise them.
What's been your biggest achievement in life or work?
Sam: To many to choose from: Being a BBW when no one really shot us. Starting out at 30 yrs old when most girls careers were considered over by 24. Being a BBW who has shot for almost every mainstream porn company. Being a top girl on Streamate. Helping thousands of other performers that they don't need to shoot for porn companies to make money or have a career by doing it myself, then by my advice. Helping many others vets and newbies take their careers to another level or just increasing their sales by 10 to 40% with my advice. Breaking many glass ceilings in this biz when told I was too fat or too old. The fact that lots of my scenes are classics. Being one of the most shot, most famous BBWs in the world. Having over 300 DVD covers and over 30 magazine covers. A 16 year working and shooting for the very 1st company I ever shoot with The Score Group.
JJ: That's a hell of a lot of things to be proud of right there. It's very impressive indeed.
What's been the most challenging thing you've had to overcome?
Sam: You call it challenging, I call it inspiration and to dream bigger.
JJ: What's been the nicest thing a fan has ever done for you?
Sam: Lots of my fans have been with me for 18 years, I find that amazing.
JJ: That's true loyalty indeed. Although I'm not surprised by that.
What is one bit of advice you'd give to someone getting into the industry?
Sam: Learn lighting, photography, editing, social media marketing, make up, set design. Be way more creative over copying what everyone else is doing. Realize most of the vets in this biz advise is bullshit and geared to keep you from making money and keep them rich. That you don't need to shoot for ANY porn company to have a nice, good or excellent income. Buy your domain name, copy right your name and tell every agent to fuck off. Do it all yourself and rely upon no one.
Tell everyone to fuck off, best way to learn is from your mistakes. Have faith that your fans will love you for exactly who you are instead of what porn people tell you to be.
Follow your passions. Look at where Lisa Ann is now due to her love of sports. Look at Aurora Snow writing for Huffington Post. Most money making person on youtube was a pornstar. There is life and careers outside of porn, Only you LIMIT yourself.
JJ: That's fantastic advice. A positive way to hear people up to be focused and driven.
Finally, what's the weirdest rumour you've heard about yourself?
Sam: haha All kinds of rumors, they crack me up. What other people think of me is none of my business.
JJ: thank you so much for being with me today. It's been an honour to have someone so straight talking with us.
