It’s been about 3 years since the last interview, besides changing your name, what else is new or different?
Everything! Since we last talked, I launched my own site and network. I wanted to be in charge of every aspect of how I was presented and my interaction with my fans, so I run my own site 100% now. It is a lot of work and very challenging, but absolutely worth it! I’ve also begun to shoot with large companies and magazines. I was so excited to get my first magazine cover in September as the Hustler cover model and centerfold, with another cover and centerfold coming this summer. I was also Miss HowardTV 2010 and got to go to New York and be on the Howard Stern show in December. It has all been so exciting!
Why did you change your name from Naughty Natalie to Natalie Nice?
I changed my name to go with my new site and image. Naughty Natalie was my name when I started in the industry four years ago. When I relaunched my site I wanted it to fit my personality. I am a very friendly and down to earth girl next door type so I could think of nothing more fitting than Natalie Nice. I love the name change and every time I am shooting with a company they always comment on how well my name fits me.
In the last interview you said you wouldn’t erase the adult performing part of your life. Do you still feel that way or are there things from the past few years you’d rather erase?
I’ve come so far in my career the last few years, there is absolutely nothing I would take back. Being in the industry has been such an eye opening experience for me and I have learned so much about business and people in general. Everything I’ve learned in the industry will help me in any career I choose to pursue in the future.
Did you ever tell your family about your porn life? Or are they still in the dark?
Before I went on Howard Stern in December, I decided to tell my family. I would rather them hear it from me than anyone else. They have been very supportive and even though it is not the path they would choose for me, they understand that I take this seriously as my career and am safe and happy.
Have you started to realize your ambitions to start a solo girl network yet or are you still just working on your own site?
YES! This has been the most exciting change since my last interview. I am a self proclaimed nerd and love working behind the scenes on all of the sites. Currently I manage my site (NatalieNice.com), an affiliate network (HustleBunnyCash.com), a multi model site (HustleBunnies.com), and three independent solo sites (NikkiSweets.com, HollyMichaels.com, and Danni-Gee.com). I hope to continue to grow and add a few more names to that list! Being a model has definitely allowed me to have a different approach to running a network. I really want the models with solo sites to be as personal and involved with their fans and sites as possible. I’m so lucky to be working with such amazing girls that take their sites seriously and care about their members deeply.
Since your last interview in 2008, the economy got worse and people weren’t spending as much on porn. How did this affect you?
I think it has effected everyone in the industry. For me, the biggest change has been on web cam. When I started four years ago, being on webcam meant no showing anything for free – no nudity was ever allowed unless you were in a private show. Once the economy got worse, girls were willing to do more for free in an effort to try to entice guys to do private shows with me. Things got a little out of control in my opinion and girls were giving everything away for free. I do think things are starting to change for the better and girls are realizing that if they make their shows more exclusive guys will appreciate the one on one attention even more.
What do you think has changed in the adult industry in general over the past 3 years?
I think the adult industry has become a lot more mainstream in the last three years. When I started, the industry was so hush hush and taboo, and now it seems like there are a lot more cross over stars and the industry is being looked at by outsiders with a much more open minded attitude.
