Janet Mason gives an exclusive interview to Freeones where she answers some very interesting questions about what it’s like for her working in the adult industry…
What led you into the porn business?
My husband and I were always into the swinging and hotwife lifestyle, and we were good with taking pictures and video, so it was a natural progression from there to starting our own amateur site in 1998 to now starting some pro work in 2008.
Did you do anything else before you got into this business?
Yes, went to college and my husband and I each had our own careers. We still do, in fact – we own and operate a non-adult industry business together.
If you had the opportunity to erase this part of your life and start over, would you?
I wouldn’t erase anything. I love what I do!
Are you open about your profession with anyone that asks, or are there certain people who you are reluctant to tell?
For the sake of discretion, we only tell people who either need to know or whom we know would understand and appreciate it.
How long do you intend to remain in this business? Are you planning on working up until you can no longer find work or is there a particular time line you have?
I’ve been doing it for over 10 years now and still LOVE it, so I have no plans to stop until or if it ever stops being enjoyable!
There seems to be a general perception that participants in this business live life “in the fast lane,” because to most of us it seems that sex and partying goes hand in hand. With that being said, how do you find the time to get rest with all this excitement going on?
I am VERY health and fitness oriented, as is my husband/webmaster, Steve. We don’t do drugs or drink heavily. Plus we have kids. Porn is just something we do because we love it – it’s not the center of our universe so we never feel burned out by it.
How much control do you have of your work? Do you get to choose who you work with?
Since my site is my site only, Steve and I are in full control and I don’t do ANYTHING that I don’t personally want to do. As for my pro work on the side, my agent is great and makes sure I’m into any work offers he comes to me with.
Can you refuse to do scenes with people you don’t click with?
Yes, I can.
Do you have your say about the use (or not) of condoms in a scene if you do b/g hardcore?
I love bareback sex and creampies, so that’s not an issue for me.
What is the best part of your job? The worst?
The best part? The sex. The worst part? Some of the idiots in the business.
What is the strangest thing you’ve been asked to do on set? Did you do it?
I have not been asked to do anything strange, ever.
What is the most embarrassing thing to ever happen to you while on the job?
Nothing. I’ve been very lucky!
Should there be more kissing on the lips between actors, or is kissing considered “too intimate” for the porn business?
I really, really, really LOVE kissing during sex so my answer is MORE!
What is the first thing you did or bought with your first porn paycheck?
I’m a grown woman with a successful business apart from porn, so the money from porn is actually not as much as I make with my real-world work. As such, I just put it in the bank and invested it later.
Do you feel that “fame” has cramped your lifestyle similar to what a mainstream film star might feel?
No, not at all. I love it!
Has porn affected your personal sex life? If so, how?
It has made me even more open-minded and adventurous than ever.
Do you have any pets?
Yes, a dog and a cat.
What do you like to do when you’re not working? Do you have any hobbies?
I work out 6 days a week in the gym, I love to read, and I love music.
What are your future ambitions?
To keep on doing what I love and love what I do!
Is there anything you would like your fans to know specifically about you?
I think that my fans can pretty much find everything they would want to know on the About Me and FAQ pages of my web site – they are very detailed!
