This is the third interview from my day with Girlfriends Films. Sarah Vandella interview by Rich Moreland
Porn veterans have incredible staying power because they know how to keep their brand fresh and exciting. One such performer is the lovely Sarah Vandella.
Recently, I met with Sarah before her scene with Girlfriends Films' director Dan O'Connell.
But first a little background on this blonde sweetheart.
Born in the early 1980s, Sarah grew up in a liberal household. Adulthood brought an interest in the sex industry. Sarah worked in a porn shop at twenty-one, danced at twenty-two, and in 2007 shot her first scene. She was twenty-four.
We talk about being the older woman by porn standards.
"Since I have entered my thirties, my sex drive and desire has grown," Sarah begins. "I'm definitely more open minded than I was in my twenties," and that means "adding to your resume in terms of being an actress."
Does maturity create a better porn performer?
Yes, Sarah says, "There's definitely something to be said for a woman with a little more experience."
The mature woman (aka MILF) is pretty sexy, Sarah adds, citing the "step mom thing" as one of porn more popular taboos.
How does Sarah maintain her on-screen freshness because porn can be repetitive?
"Indeed. It sure is," she responds, then describes her formula for success.
"I keep pushing myself and my boundaries as long as I'm comfortable with them. Maybe going a little harder, a little rougher, different positions, or going in the opposite direction and being more sensual and connecting more with my partner. Giving that softer side."
I bring up creative oral sex. Sarah is frank, "A blow job is still a blow job, but you can do a seductive blow job and a not very seductive blow job."
"When a girl keeps pushing her boundaries, she tries to go a little harder. Maybe she tries to deep throat a little more, get a little messier. As long as you're showing genuine interest and desire to be there on-set, that's the key.
"Yes, oral sex can be repetitive but if it's a Riley Reid or a Maddy O'Reilly, you want to keep seeing their new scenes because it's so fucking hot and you love it," Sarah notes with appreciative excitement.
Camming is the newest thing in adult entertainment. How has it influenced the business?
"Porn has changed, as you know," Sarah replies. "We don't have adult stores anymore. Distributors are dying. Everything is online now. Thank God for fans who still support the websites."
Technology has forced the adult business to reposition itself. Where does the cam girl fit into this new business model?
"Cam girls provide a level of intimacy and connection that not every porn girl has. When you're camming you've got to open yourself to conversation, to sex play, to help instruction, to be that all-around fantasy girl. Porn stars aren't available to their fans that way."
Camming is much different than shooting video, right?
"Absolutely," Sarah says. But there is a positive in camming. Online fans have high expectations, she points out, which pressures established porn performers to "keep up with these girls who are giving fans so much attention."
The native New Yorker explains the cam girl advantage.
"They're easily accessible. They've made it their priority. I really admire a lot of them, truly. They're hard working girls. They keep their schedule. They never flake. They can't afford to. It's their show, their name and their brand, and also their income."
What does the cam girl bring to porn?
These models "have a built-in fan base" and are "available to their fans," Sarah says. As a result, some have reached porn star status. "They make their own videos and have them available on their sites."
But there is a caveat.
"To take any average cam girl and try to turn her into a superstar won't work," Sarah insists. But she does concede there are exceptions who have done some "mainstream porn stuff,", concluding that "the cam girls that turn into performers are the special ones."
Finally, what is in Sarah Vandella's future porn-wise?
"I admire ladies like Julia Ann and Lisa Ann who have put their time into the business. They have evolved with age.
"So, you never know. I'm open to it all. I would love to have a movie deal, do feature work and/or gonzo. I'm a lifer. I never want to stop," Sarah proclaims with that dimpled smile her fans have come to love.
