Interview: Sophia Santi

This American hottie proves that you really can go from amateur porn sites to full-blown, anal-and-a-deep-throat, porn film stardom!

Where are you from?
I was born in Florida and nowadays I live in Los Angeles.

How did you get into the adult business?
I was 19-years-old when I started posing nude on small internet sites. Very soon after that I came to Los Angeles and started shooting for all the magazines. In 2005 I was selected Penthouse Pet Of The Year Runner Up. Soon after, I made my debut for Digital Playground.

What was it like stepping onto a porn set for the first time?
Oh, God! The set of my first porn movie, The Way Of The Dragon, was a lot of fun but also a little nerve-wracking. It was my first feature so I was on the spot. Also, I had to work with porn icon Janine Lindemuller. I was nervous but she made it amazing. The fact that I am still here proves that I like it. In the meantime, I made several other movies like Posh Kitten, Mrs. Behavin’, Virtual Sex With Sophia Santi, Teagan’s Juice, Island Fever 4, Jack’s Playground 32 and Tryst.

Which one would you like to be remembered for?
I guess I’d like to be remembered for my first one, The Way Of The Dragon, most of all. That’s where it all started. And second would be Island Fever 4, for which I spent a good and hot time on the island of Bora Bora with all of my sexy Digital Playground friends Jesse Jane, Jana Cova and Teagan Presley.

Who are your favourite co-stars?
In Peak: Diary Of A Voyeur, Jamie Lynn and I had a great scene just making out. We totally forgot the cameras were there! And Jesse Jayne is great, too – she is so into it! And male-wise, so far my favourite is Scott Nails.

Do you have a steady partner?
No, I have many lovers but no one serious bedroom pal.

What have you learned, sexually, from the business?
I learned how to feel sexy when I’m having sex. I have no inhibitions or insecurities any more.

Do you watch porn movies yourself?
I do watch porn, yes. I like arty porn like the style director Celeste does at Digital Playground (check out Celeste directed flicks like Icon, Repo Girl and Intoxicated!).
If you had the chance to make your own porn movie, what would it be like?
I would star in a 1940s style detective movie where I spy on a lot of hot people in their infidelities. And then have sex with all of them!

Are there any limits for you in sex?
I don’t like S&M – light bondage is as far as I’ll go.

What do you like most about your day job?
I like having sex in front of other people. It’s fun to be watched, it excites me.
What are your best qualities as a porn star?
Probably that I don’t look like your typical porn star. Also that I love what I do!

Do you masturbate?
Yes please! When I play with myself, I have to set a time limit or else I won’t stop! I can have multiples all day long, and toys are fun too.

What does sex mean to you?
It’s an intimate, sensual experience to be enjoyed with all the senses. Smells and sounds can be just as erotic as touch. And who doesn’t like to watch?!?

What has been your best sex experience, so far?
Having my pussy eaten at sunset on a mountain top. I love sex anywhere out in mother nature’s paradise.

What is your most sensitive body part?
My neck.

What is your biggest turn on?
Being manhandled. Show me who is the boss!

Does size matter?
Honestly? Yes. Anywhere between seven and nine inches is perfect. But there are exceptions to the rule. I’ve had great sex with men outside of that range just because they knew how to use it!

Are there still fantasies you want to live out?
Yes, and they all involve sex in places I’ve never been. I love to travel and I want to have sex in every country in the world… or at least most of them!

Do you actually come when you’re filming sex scenes?
Sometimes, not always. It depends on my partner and on the situation.

What’s your favourite position?
Missionary with my legs wrapped around your neck. It his the spot like that.

What’s the best thing about a come shot?
Tasting it!

What is the most bizarre or memorable scene you’ve ever shot?
I once shot a mutual masturbation scene with Scott Nails through plexiglass. It was really hot! Another memorable scene is the one where I abuse Jana Cova with a fur stole while she’s tied up.

What’s the weirdest place you’ve ever had sex off-screen?
In a New York city hotel hallway. It was late but still some people came in and saw us! Exciting!
