Today I'm talking to a woman who took the industry by the balls, she worked hard and made herself into a one woman business. She had become a respected columnist, model, business woman and she's here today to tell you all a bit more about herself. Welcome the very inspiring Sarah Jane.
JJ: Welcome to Inside the Porn. It's a pleasure to have you with us today.
What got you into the adult industry?
Sarah: I am and have always been an exhibitonist, sexually openminded and willing to try new things. Sex is a great part of my life and the older and maturer I became the more I started to explore orgies. I came into this industry with my eyes wide open. I saw an opportunity in the market and don’t we all know - sex sells right? It is just knowing exactly where to put yourself, although it is a “taboo” industry, in that small niche it is competetive. The challenge of that, got me in the industry.
JJ: It's already clear you're a woman who will face a challenge head on and will work until you conquer it.
What's the best thing about the industry?
Sarah: The best thing about working within the industry is everybodys “openess” to try new things, to openly talk about sex, to understand and acknowledge the “language of love” – or shall I say “language of sex.” Sex comes in all shapes and sizes, not just referring to speaking sexual appetites and delving into our many fantasies, but exploring new experiences, learning and sharing. People in this industry kind of run with their own little bubbles .. we are all different but all exactly the same at the same time, make sense? Freedom of sexuality this is how we are made!
JJ: That's a great way way to look at things. More people should look at the world like that.
What's the worst thing about the industry?
Sarah: You gotta keep it classy! I am not at all a fan of girls posting their most intimate areas to social media you have to keep your dignity for christ sake. You hear stories of women who end up in this industry who are the ones with horrific childhoods and that’s why they end up in porn kinda like a “way out” well what a load of crap! For one, I do not entertain porn, I do entertain parties and beautiful women and couples. Any woman can go out and get any job they want. The sex industry is a choice not a last resort. People place me in a box sometimes of being too wild, fucked up, but I am actually a positive voice for women out there to prove that you do not have to have a fucked up life to end up in this industry. It stands to reason, I guess it depends what it is you actually “do” in this industry?! I am here to entertain and host erotic parties… I do not post ‘below the belt (ha literally)’naked pics of myself to my SM I kinda have morals! Each to their own. Opinions are an entitlement. Women are beautiful human beings I find it bizarre when they exploit themselves.
JJ: What's the funniest thing to happen whilst working?
Sarah: I used to giggle to myself when I saw women being slaves to demanding males, women who wear head masks and eat from their dom’s feet. It isn’t my kinda thing, the first time was funny, however now, when stuff like that passes my nose, I am utterly used to it. After a while the funny things become normal and you become pretty passive.
JJ: I think being in the adult industry the most crazy things can become very normal haha
What are you up to work wise at the moment?
Sarah: I have just finished writing an article for GQ Magazine regarding “sex party etiquette’ which is to be published online so please keep an eye out. I keep all my followers up to date via my online diary on my new personal website sarahjaneofficial.uk I have just been approached by Channel 5 to appear on an upcoming series about the sex industry. I have a meeting this week, my online diary will tell you the outcome and updates! I am also in the midst of a new brand, new “sex” project and recently switched to a new investor. I model on the side and I am pretty much living out my suitcase, always looking for the next opportunity and constantly reinvetning myself, I am still heavily in attendance to the erotic party world (worldwide). I used to live in Asia and I have a few peeps over there that entertain whom I stay in touch with and attend as much as I can!
Where is the best place for people follow you online?
Sarah: The best places to find me is my website sarahjaneofficial.uk, Instagram: sazzajane, Twitter: sazzajane0, Snapchat: Sjbanahan / Im No Angel
Facebook is a no-no I quit that bullshit a year ago. Hashtags are powerful.. Facebook depressed me!!
JJ: I think that people should definitely get following you as you post some amazing stuff.
What's the best thing about sex?
Sarah: Being confident and loving your body. No point being intimate if you don’t know how to please yourself either by touching yourself or looking at yourself naked. Confidence is sexy, the rest will follow… Mindset is a wonderful thing! Sex is only good when you know what youre doing and the person who has the same mindset: confidence.
JJ: It's great that confidence is what you think is the best thing about sex. It's not an answer many people give.
What are your biggest turn ons?
Sarah: Now this really depends on my mood. I can go from girl next door to slapping you acrosos the face within seconds. I love confidence. I hate questions. The bodys reactions and facial expressions are all the hidden answers one needs. Well that’s how I roll anyway, I cannot speak for everybody else.
JJ: The question I've been waiting to ask is what's your favourite movie?
Sarah: I used to love gangster movies. As I get older I am starting to love silly, romantic movies I like the simpliness to them. As I get busier (and I will regret this when I write the following) but, I am starting to get a feel for sci-fi. I have never in my life enjoyed sci-fi, but their stories seem to take me away from my own problems, or hurdles and I find sci-fi an “escape” of my own life sometimes. I play hardball constantly, gangster is as hard as you can get, maybe I mirrored that in my life to get what I wanted (the attitude not the gory stuff lol) I loved the respect they had from people but maybe I am just changing, change is good.
JJ: Well I agree change is very good. Movies should let you escape your world for a while and let you feel like you've escaped. I'd have never guessed you were interested in Sci-Fi though.
Whats your favourite holiday destination?
Sarah: Huge fan of The Datai - Langkawi Island in Indonesia, one of my favourite destinations for peace and quiet. I am starting to hit America a bit more now, however I see the USA as work, a party place to visit only – I like small quiet islands in Europe, they are all on my doorstep. You cannot beat the Mediterranean Sea, for me, the best sea in the world!
JJ: I've said this before in an Interview but my peace and quiet place is Santa Eulalia in Ibiza. It's so quiet and quaint with beautiful coastlines. I always relax best there.
Tell me one thing about yourself that people would never know by looking at you?
Sarah: I always brush my teeth in the shower. I never have a shower until it has been running for more than 10 minutes as I like getting naked within the steam. I hate being cold and I love walking around naked, but only if its generally warm. When I sleep I follow the heat, no matter a friend, a relative or lying next to a boyfriend, guaranteed they would wake up with me hugging them.
JJ: They are some of my favourite answers for that question. Just for the record I'm like a little radiator I'm always warm haha.
What's been your biggest achievement in life or work?
Sarah: Starting a business. Getting everything I have ever wanted in life. Being ballsy and not giving a shit what anybody speaks of me. Opinions of sheep never matter when you run amongst the lions. Life is short go for it 110% or fuck off wasting peoples time and your own. You gotta believe in yourself and own it!
JJ: It's clear to see why you've had so much success. You're driven and hard working and it's that drive that's propelled you to success.
What's the most challenging thing you've overcome?
Sarah: Unreliability in people whom you think care about you. People will show up when they think they are gaining something from you, be careful of those people, they are in it for gold not your respect, that disheartens me. You get used to timewasters and you learn to have a stronger grip, knowing when to pull the reigns in and always, always remain calm, be the better person. Smiling is all you need, that helps overcome a lot of bullshit.
JJ: I think figuring out who you can really rely on and trust is definitely the most challenging thing in my opinion. There's a lot of people that tell you what you want to hear as long as it suits them.
What's the best thing a fan has ever done for you?
Sarah:Support me, throughout the good and the bad and still be there to witness and salute me on my journey. My biggest respect is for my fans, they pull me through, even when they don’t realize their worth to me.. I aspire to inspire.
JJ: That's great that you can take strength from your fans like that. It's a big salute to those fans who may have inspired you.
What's one bit of advice for anyone wanting to get into the adult industry?
Sarah: Set youself a goal of what exactly you want to do. Do NOT ever move that goal post. Keep going. Be strong and be ready for critism on all levels, even from your closest acquaintances. Study your competitors religiously, be one step ahead. One more thing: always collaboratewhen given the opportunity.
JJ: That's some very strong advice. I can see if people follow that then they'll have great success moving forward.
What do you think you'll do if you leave the industry?
Sarah: I will carry on writing, Write more books and I would love to get into acting eventually.. like a naughty Bond Girl that'll suit me just fine!
JJ: I could imagine you as a naughty Bond girl. That certainly would suit you. I'm not sure Bond could handle you though haha.
Finally, What's the weirdest rumour you've heard about yourself?
Sarah: That I’m a Porn star, enough said haha.
JJ: That's obviously someone who hasn't been paying attention to who you are at all.
Thank you so much for being with me today and I always look forward to reading your articles as they are always a great read.
