Exclusive Interview: Holly West


Congrats on being picked as the LA Direct Models Girl of the Month! What makes you stand out from the other girls on the roster to get this recognition?

I’m new. I’ve only been in porn for about three months now. I think what stand me above everyone else is that I’m always on time! That’s a pet peeve of mine. I make sure that I leave my house a little earlier, plus I’m driving from San Diego. It’s a long drive for me. On top of that, I’m a little older. I’m 27. I think the maturity level definitely helps a lot. I’m really one of those girls that’s really easy-going and will do whatever you want!

THAT is a great attitude to have in porn!

I know! I’m not one of those girls that goes on set and says, “No, I’m not doing that!” I love my job and I’m going to be the best at it. I’m going in to give 110%.

Tell me more about yourself. Where did you grow up?

I’m originally from Long Beach. I was raised in Orange County. I moved to San Diego almost two years ago. We bought a new house there. I am married! I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing!

If you can do it and laugh about it, it must be OK. You sound like a really happy person! Has being married been an issue at all?

No. My husband and I swing. Well, I can’t really say ’swing’ because he’s a voyeur and every time we’ve been with another couple it’s been me with the other couple and he’s watched. Porn is like a dream come true for him! It works out both ways.

Everybody gets their rocks off that way!

Exactly! It’s like having your cake and eating it, too!

Except this cake is filled with cash, though!

Yes! It has benefits. We both really enjoy it. He’s actually helping me with my website. It’s not up yet but I’m still in the process of getting the content together. It’s about a husband always being one step behind! I’m really excited about it.

So you’ve been in the industry for three months…

Yes, and I never did anything before that – no dancing, no nothing!

What did you do before?

I worked as an administrative assistant. I did payroll in an office, basically.

That’s a huge change to go from working in an office to doing porn!

Believe it or not, I’ve always wanted to do something along these lines. Maybe not porn but something like Penthouse. I love the female body and I really enjoy showing mine off. Being in a swinger life opened the door to porn. One day I jokingly told my husband I should do porn. He thought it was a good idea and once I had his support it was all over! I didn’t know how he was going to take it and my marriage is something that’s very important to me.

I can imagine this probably spices up the marriage life a little more!

Oh yeah – it does!

Now that you’re in the biz, what do you want to do? How ambitious are you?

I really want to make a big name for myself. I’m a little older and I don’t think I’ve got too long. That’s why I’m giving it everything I’ve got up front. I really hope to get a couple of websites under my belt and make a big name for myself. Every time I go into a shoot I always see Sunny Leone on the front cover of magazines laying around. That’s what I want.

Do you want to do features or gonzo or does it matter?

It doesn’t matter. I enjoy it all. Whatever will get me out there, as long as I’m comfortable with it. Porn can be so sexy and it shouldn’t be about beatings or something crazy! As long as it turns me on, I’ll do it!

Has it all be what you’d expect so far?

It’s been better! I was talking to Derek [Owner, LA Direct Models] about it and he was amazed that I haven’t had an issue with anybody. I’ve enjoyed everybody I’ve worked with. No just talent, but the companies, producers and directors.

What have you been up to this week? Any weekend plans?

I’ve had a couple of shoots earlier this week and I’m actually on my way to a shoot now. I’m going camping this weekend. We bought a new boat and we want to take it out for a few days. Then, I have another shoot next week when we get back.

Have you made a lot of friends in the industry?

Yes, I have. It’s been awesome. I don’t get to hang out a lot because I live so far away but I’ve got to meet so many people. Not just talent, but the producers and directors. I’ve met some of them that I talk to probably more than the talent. I’ve met a lot of people and they’ve all been so sweet.

Holly, thanks for making a few minutes for us today! Congrats on your achievements so far!

Thank you much! I’m so excited and I appreciate it so much!
