Samantha Bentley Interview: Life In The Adult Business

 

Porn is a billion dollar industry and more than 28,000 people tune in to sex scenes every second across the world.

But while business is good, the industry is still misunderstood and not much is known about the life and work of adult entertainers.

Lifting the lid on what it’s like to have sex on film, we spoke to London-born porn star Samantha Bentley to find out all the ins and outs of her kinky job.

In an exclusive interview with Daily Star Online, the 28-year-old brunette, who played a prostitute in Game Of Thrones, reveals everything you’ve ever wanted to know but were too afraid to ask.

1. How did you get into the porn industry?

When I was 18 I began dancing while I was at university.

Strippers meet a surprising number of photographers and it was around the time that social media began expanding so I started shooting and getting published in the-top shelf magazines.

From there it was a carefully planned step-by-step career, I started with girl-girl and won an Adult Video News (AVN) award for one of my scenes which prompted the company to contract me for my first boy-girl scene.

2. How would you define your sexuality?

Try-sexual (a person who is willing to try anything).

3. What was your worst on-set experience?

I don't really like going into it, but there was a guy I worked with in Los Angeles who ended up directly on my no list.

He was inexperienced, vile and covered in fake tan, which rubbed off on me. He ate garlic chicken before we started shooting and didn't brush his teeth.

I nearly puked and the scene took forever.

4. How do you have sex with someone you don’t find attractive?

I was lucky to be in a position where I could choose my partners, so it was a select few.

But in the past there have been loads, I'm just a good actress. Porn isn't real sex, it’s all about performance – sorry to burst everyone’s bubble.

There have been many times I have closed my eyes and thought of my pay cheque.

5. Do you really orgasm during sex scenes?

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Just like real life.

6. What are the best and worst things about being a porn star?

The best things about being a porn star are travelling, choosing when you work, good money, being your own boss, the attention, the awards and the glamorous side of things.

But the worst are travelling (it’s a double-edged sword, I'm never home and always tired), being your own boss (again double-edged sword, the stress of not having someone else to deal with sh** when you really need a day off), the gross dudes that think it’s okay to spam your social media with d*** pics, the abuse from feminist groups, the people that look down their nose at you like you're a lesser person for having this job and stalkers.

7. Do you enjoy having sex on camera?

I enjoy it but for different reason than I enjoy sex with my partner. I like to perform, I've always been a performer, it's what I do.

Samantha Bentley is a character, she's not real. I like to play her occasionally.

8. How many sexual partners have you had during your career?

I wouldn't even be able to count. I literally can't remember them all.

9. Have you ever dated a co-star?

Briefly. Don't s*** where you eat. That's all I have to say about that.

10. How much do porn stars earn?

Everyone earns different amounts, girls’ rates depend on their level and how successful or popular they are within the industry.

Rates are generally dependent on how many scenes you've shot, who you’ve shot them for and with, or whether you’ve won any awards.

11. What happens behind-the-scenes on porn sets that no-one knows about?

We act like normal people, that’s the shocking truth.

12. How did it feel to win an AVN award?

It was one of the best moments of my life, I've won a few but the award for my scene with Rocco Siffredi that I won last year was probably the best. I had no idea what to say, I was a mumbling mess on the stage.

13. Do your friends family know you do porn? How did they react?

Yes they do, it took a while for them to get used to but now they are fine with it.

14. Do producers put pressure on you to maintain a certain appearance?

The producers don't tell me how to look but obviously you get booked more if you stay in shape. I have a vegan diet and I do a lot of yoga.

15. Do you see your future in porn?

I see my future in a mish-mash of everything. I DJ, produce and write music but I’m also interested in directing porn or going into fashion, which is what I studied at university.

I also starred in Game Of Thrones which was a great experience and one of the defining moments of my career.

It’s something I would love to do again, but I’ve never wanted to pursue acting full-time.

I don't like repeating myself and I have a short attention span.

16. What makes the ideal partner to have sex with on and off camera?

On camera it's important for them to have good personal hygiene, be professional, work fast,  know what they are doing and maintain personal space when we're not filming.

I don't like it if they try and hit on me or take me out after the scene. 

My ideal partner off camera should smell good, bite my neck, make me laugh, make eye contact and do lots of foreplay and kissing.

17. Do you also enjoy having sex in your personal life?

Of course. My partner is everything, I recently scaled back performing and now don't do boy-girl, it makes having sex with him way more special and intimate.

18. What’s the difference between real sex and sex on-set?

Real sex is fake, it's acted, we are in a room full of loads of people, we have cameras shoved in our faces and it's all choreographed: the positions, the noises, the facial expressions and the emotions,.

Sex in real life is real, it's intimate, passionate and intense.

19. Does penis size matter and is it the bigger the better?

No and no.

20. What are the best sex positions to make women orgasm?

All women are different but for me laying on my stomach in lazy Doggy Style is the best
