Kelly Stafford interview
What have you been up to lately - do you perform, direct, or both?
Kelly Stafford: I've had a break from performing mainly to concentrate on running a talent agency in the UK supplying the talent for productions but after 5 years I just want to be back in front of the camera.
How did you get into the porn biz?
Kelly Stafford: I was helping Kirstyn Halborg who at the time was my agent out on the shoot co-ordinate the shoot book the girls etc and the shoot was for Rocco he asked If I would like be in the movie. At first I said no as I had no desire to make Vanilla porn which was what I had seen from everyone else. He asked me Why and I told him I like to be anally raped can you shoot that? Of course the rest is History I ended up doing the scene as I could see he would allow me to do it my way.
How is a porn movie made? How are the locations, strong studs and sex positions selected?
Kelly Stafford: For me I don't shoot the standard way. Of course locations and actors must be booked but I prefer to shoot of the cuff and go with the flow I think that captures real sex. I couldn't work in main stream productions and that's why I haven't I couldn't just go in do four positions and a come shot. I like to give something of myself to every scene and I have watched strong girls dramatically tone down there scenes for someone else. I just can't do it what you see is what you get I hate lines I just want to get fucked.
You've done many movies with Rocco Siffredi and won awards. How would you describe the chemistry you have with Rocco?
Kelly Stafford: I've only ever worked for Rocco. We are the same sexually so I understand him and he understand me probably more than anyone else. I don't think it could be repeated we where just in the right place at the right time.
How do you feel about conducting business with major studios?
Kelly Stafford: Like I said I couldn't work mainstream like other extreme actresses like for example Bella Donna I respect the fact that her sexuality has many sides and she can tone it done. I can't I would feel like I sold out. Mine is not money driven it is purely sexual for me so I don't see the point in big movies. It's not my style.
How about distributing films that are only available as direct Internet content?
Kelly Stafford: This I like as you can show so much more on the net which is great not so bullshit censorship I believe that if two willing adults want to show how they like to fuck in whatever form others should be able to see. If I want to drink Pee I will why shouldn't you see it. This is definitely where you will see the best of Kelly on the net.
According to Google Trends, you are popular in Europe and in Italy in particular. Have you always concentrated your efforts in building brand awareness in Europe? What about the U.S.?
Kelly Stafford: I haven't concentrated my efforts anywhere I think that the fact Europe you can see more the movies make more sense than that in the US where half the scene is cut out of course your not seeing the whole situation.
The trends show that you keep your popularity stable for more than four years. How do you do that Kelly? Where does your strength and power come from?
Kelly Stafford: It comes from within and the fact that I don't shoot all the time so when I do you get something special for me the industry is not a job it's not about money. When I started it was about showing strong women who liked to get fucked the way I do which back in the late Nineties just didn't happen. I think I was the first real extreme performer if you look now there still aren't that many only a handful that are really real Bella, Isobel Ice, Annette Schwartz, Bobbi Star and Adrianna Nicole. The fans can see who is real it shows so I think that's what keeps me popular.
Tell me about your gang bangs.
Kelly Stafford: I just love gang bangs but the trouble is for me they are like foreplay I want something amazingly strong after.
What's the feeling having so many guys shoot their load all over you?
Kelly Stafford: I love the taste of sperm I always have I believe that as a women you should love everything that comes from a man sperm pee poo you name it if he is willing to give it to me I am more than willing to take it with pleasure it's a gift you should always accept a gift with pleasure and a smile.
Are you exhausted after that? Or is your strong fit body ready for more?
Kelly Stafford: Always ready for more.
How do you measure success of a new movie? Which of your films was the biggest financial success for you?
Kelly Stafford: I just Perform in the movies I don't have any Financial interests.
How is your wage as a porn star determined? Hourly, daily or weekly? Is it performance based (percentage from sales) or contract based? Are producers willing to pay more for anal and gang bangs scenes rather than vaginal and oral scenes?
Kelly Stafford: I don't work for other companies but I can tell you that as an agent it depends on the quality of girl of course a flawless stunner that does everything will be paid a higher price than a very plain average looking girl who does nothing. At the end of the day for the producers it's a business and they want the best to have the best product. You are always paid per scene unless you are under contact.
You are famous for your outrageous anal sex movies. Do you prefer anal sex rather than vaginal?
Kelly Stafford: With out a doubt yes.
What's a girl has do to break into the porn biz these days?
Kelly Stafford: With the Internet it's not that difficult anyone can break in to the business and be a commercial success.
What is an experience from your adolescence where justice was not the outcome?
Kelly Stafford: I never had an bad experience when I was young I was always very skilled in getting men to beat me and fuck my arse.
What have been some of the difficulties that you did or did not foresee regarding being a porn star?
Kelly Stafford: I only ever think for the day as you never know when is your time. But when I had my Son I found it hard when I was in the street and people would say oh that's Kelly she loves getting fucked in the arse or people would shout things at me when I was with my family. I never bothered me before I had him but at that time ( think mainly it was after pregnancy hormones) I worried for him how he would cope having a mother who has done such things for all the world to see. But I was never ashamed and now i couldn't give a crap you can't take it away so I might as well do more and more.
What talent or skill would you least mind losing?
Kelly Stafford: I am happy with myself you are who you are flaws and all.
How do you balance motherhood and work?
Kelly Stafford: It's difficult but in life you must do things for yourself other wise when I deprive myself I become impossible to live with. Yes I am a mother but I'm also Kelly you have to find a balance and I spend more time with my son than any other working mother I know.
Who is the lucky husband and how did you meet him? Is he in porn as well?
Kelly Stafford: He isn't in the business.
I've read at you MySpace page that your hero is "Any one prepared to push the boundaries of acceptable society". Do you know a few people who do that?
Kelly Stafford: Yes. Lot's of them but they won't thank me for naming them. I love rules if there aren't rules how can you break them.
What are your hobbies?
Kelly Stafford: I love my Dogs, I have a new great Dane which I will show, Horse riding, Literature, History particularly English history but my passion is music.
Where do you see your career progressing?
Kelly Stafford: I don't know I never planned my career it just happened I will be back working in front and behind the camera again this time older wiser and alot more perverse so time will tell.
