Mindy Lynn Interviewby Ray | April 7th, 2009
It’s 10AM. I have my stereo is cranked, when I faintly hear my doorbell…
I open the door to find petite Mindy Lynn sitting atop her suitcase.
She playfully throws her hands up, as if to say “what the hell?”
RAY: How long have you been sitting here?
MINDY LYNN: I’ve rang a few times…
RAY: Sorry. So, my makeup artist won’t be here for a while, and –
MINDY: Yes! I’m starving!
We jump in my car.
RAY: Are you a Vegan?
MINDY: How’d you know?
RAY: You seem uncomfortable in leather seats.
MINDY: Actually, I like to say that I’m vegetarian — But I go crazy for Coach bags and Italian shoes. Let’s just say, I was more of a vegetarian when I didn’t have any money. Once I started making cash I thought “oh my god! This stuff lasts so much longer!”
RAY: Not many designer bags come in hemp.
MINDY: Not really, no!
RAY: So you’re not a diva.
MINDY: How can I be a diva? I’m in porn!
RAY: You would be very surprised… Are you Italian?
MINDY: I am! I’m Italian and Portugese. I also have a bit of dirty southern white girl in me.
RAY: Don’t we all.
MINDY: [Laughs] My mom’s mom lived in North Carolina her whole life. She was super-poor white trash. My dad is Italian and Portugese. His parents came to this country from Italy.
RAY: Is your mom going to be upset that you called her white trash?
MINDY: No! I think there are a few more things she’ll be upset about!

RAY: Is she unaware of your career?
MINDY: Actually, she knows what I do. She’s proud of me. She says mommy needs a tummy-tuck! [Laughs]
RAY: Is she hot?
MINDY: She is! I’m trying to get her to join the industry. I don’t know if she would.
RAY: How old is she?
MINDY: She’s going to be 39, I believe.
RAY: How old are you?
MINDY: I just turned 19.
RAY: Do you still talk to your dad?
MINDY: Yes, I just talked to him yesterday. He doesn’t know, however. If he did, he would kill me. I would literally be dead in the ground.
RAY: Would he send the mob after everybody?
MINDY: Oh yeah. You guys would all be so dead.
RAY: What about your grandparents?
MINDY: I love my grandma. She’s so awesome. She’s like 63 and she’s into online gaming.
RAY: World of Warcraft?
MINDY: [Laughs] No! Oh my god, that would be so funny. She plays games that have a lot of social interaction. She’s probably at home now making lunch, like a good wife. She’s a total Martha Stewart wife. I love that.
RAY: Do you plan to make adult a career?
MINDY: We’ll see how it goes. I don’t want to make only twenty grand and get shot-out. It’s something that I enjoy, but I don’t think I would want to do it forever. Porn pays for school, but I have a lot of other things going on in my life. So far, I’ve met a lot of really great people. It’s a cool industry, but I want to teach yoga. I want to teach kids. I want to join the Peace Corps. and do all the hippie shit.
RAY: You’re a hippie?
RAY: I like your pants.
MINDY: They’re so comfy! I just felt they were so… ‘College girl’.
RAY: Where are you from?
MINDY: San Diego. I was born in Oakland. We moved to camp Pendleton when I was four or five. We lived in a small town near San Diego. We lived there until I was 18. At that point, I moved to Pacific Beach. That was horrible. It’s the party town in San Diego. Then I moved to the other side of Mission Bay. I live by myself in an ocean view apartment. I’m doing really well now. I make a lot more money than most girls my age.
RAY: So did you have to commute to come see me today?
MINDY: No, I had a scene yesterday so afterwards I stayed up here with a friend.
RAY: Is there anything that’s turned you off about working in adult?
MINDY: Kind of. One of the directors I shot for was just a little disrespectful towards women. I mean, I understand he’s in the porn business. But when you have a female in the car, you don’t roll down the window and shout to another female that she has a nice ass. Personally, I think that’s rude on a social level. You just don’t do that.
RAY: How many scenes have you shot?
MINDY: This scene for Amateur Allure will be my fifth. But I’ve been doing solo work for a long time.
RAY: How did you get into that?
MINDY: I worked at a restaurant for three years. I got fired, and thought “fuck! I don’t want to get a real job!” So I thought, fuck it. I might as well do it. It was nude modeling — stills only. I’ve always kind of wanted to do porn. I thought I’d be really good at it. And I discovered that I am. But it’s a big plunge to take. You have to break the news to everyone in your life. It’s like announcing you’re gay. It’s a big step. You can’t really expect to keep it a secret. I’m not trying to keep anything from the people in my life. So I started slow, doing nude modeling — which I loved. It paid the bills for a while. But one thing lead to another, and here I am.
RAY: How did the people in your life react to the news?
MINDY: Everybody’s taking it really well, actually. My friends think it’s kind of hilarious and cool. I haven’t had any haters, tho I had one guy going around telling people I did porn before I even really did it yet. That pissed me off because I don’t like people talking about my life if they don’t know me. I had to put the Oakland smackdown on his ass.
RAY: So how did you get involved with porn?
MINDY: I answered an ad on Craigslist. That’s how I made all my money for six months. Craigslist was my job.
RAY: Any crazy experiences?
MINDY: Oh my god… Are you kidding? I once showed-up at a gig, expecting it to be a professional photo shoot — And it turns out to be a 70-year-old guy with a camera. I actually shot for him and he turned-out to be one of the sweetest guys in the world. I shot with him multiple times, in fact. And I know the photos aren’t going anywhere. I realized pretty quickly they were just for his pleasure. They were just solo masturbation videos. He showed me the site they were allegedly going up on, but every time I look for it I can’t find it. Which is probably for the best!
RAY: His relatives will find the tapes in a shoebox after he dies.
MINDY: Yeah! When he finally craps-out. That’s so funny. That’s why it’s so important to come clean with the people in your life. Especially when you’re doing this in a professional way. It’s a job. It’s a huge industry and there is tons of money to be made. Just because it involves sex, it seems to freak people out. Sex is the most natural thing in the world. Everybody watches porn! Anybody who says they don’t is lying! Everybody watches it, and everybody likes to get down. It’s that simple. There’s nothing wrong with it. Even the people who work in the industry are cleaner than the general public. You have to be so responsible about your sexual health. My self-esteem has gone through the roof after being in this industry. I love it. I think it’s wonderful. A lot of people have misunderstandings about the porn world. I can see why, to some degree. Some girls can lose their heads. They make all this money and get stuck-up and turn into a diva. Or maybe they have daddy issues going into it, and they work with a bunch of sleazeballs and then end-up turning lesbo. But if you have a good head on your shoulders, it’s a really great opportunity to get ahead in life. You can pay off school and put a down payment on a house.
RAY: You seem well-grounded.
MINDY: I pride myself in that. It makes me easy to work with. It makes me fun to be around. It keeps me sane. I smile every night when I lay my head down. I thank god that he’s given me the things that he has in this life. I feel so blessed.
RAY: Are you a religious girl?
MINDY: My family is Catholic. I’m not the type to go to church, but I’m definitely a spiritual person. I think things happen for a reason. I believe god has a plan for every one. I don’t use rosaries or say “Hail Marys,” however. Nothing like that! I feel spirituality is much more about nature than it is about anything else.
RAY: How old were you the first time you had sex?
MINDY: I think I was 14 or 15. I can’t really remember. It was with my boyfriend at the time. I just wanted to get it out of the way! Of course the first time is horrible. It wasn’t that fun. Actually, the second time wasn’t much fun either! That was with a different guy, too. After that, it got better and better. Eventually I knew what I was doing. When you get older, you become more comfortable with yourself and more aware of your body. When you’re attracted to somebody, it has more meaning.
RAY: Are you a romantic girl?
MINDY: I’m the most hopeless romantic you’ll ever meet.
RAY: Why hopeless?
MINDY: Because men are pigs! [Laughs] I hate them all.
RAY: Have you had your heart broken?
MINDY: Yes. It’s sad, right? I plan things in my head, but things just never seem to work out the way I want them to. I realize I’m only 19 years old. Things change for me all the time, so it would be hard for me to be in a relationship anyway. But eventually, I know it’s something that I really want. I’m totally like… throw rocks at my window… sing me songs… and let’s get in a big dramatic fight in the rain and then get married after… [Laughs] I’m just crazy like that. But not until later. Like I said, I’m only 19. I want to enjoy all different types of guys and relationships and learn from them. I think that’s how you make a good wife — or even a good husband — by having experiences with different types of partners. You have to go out and test all the flavors. If you settle down too quickly with somebody, that’s what ruins relationships. It makes people cheat if they feel like they haven’t lived their own lives before they try to create a life with somebody else. So much has changed in the past year for me. I’m a completely different person than I was even a few months ago.
RAY: Do you want to be a stepford wife?
MINDY: More than anything! I love that idea. I think it’s super-cute. Obviously I understand in today’s society that it’s not very realistic — Especially with the economy being the way it is. But in an ideal situation, I would love to be a stay-at-home mom. I would keep everything clean and nice and color-coordinated and make cupcakes… All that fun stuff! I love pink more than anything. Everything in my room is pink.
RAY: How did you come up with your stage name?
MINDY: The first guy I shot with. I was trying to create a persona with my name. I thought about being Mindy Monroe, Mindy Morrissey, or maybe Mindy Magdalene — Although I’d probably go straight to hell for that one.
RAY: What’s the wildest thing you’ve ever done, sexually?
MINDY: Anal. It wasn’t that fun. I couldn’t get into it. I also had sex in a dressing room at the store. It was with my boyfriend at the time. We were trying on jeans together. It was super-cool. Other than that, I’m pretty vanilla.
RAY: Are you wild on set?
MINDY: Yes! I think so. I’m a good performer — or so I’ve been told.
RAY: Why wasn’t anal fun for you?
MINDY: It worked, and I liked it at the time. But he was small. I would never do it with a porn weiner. They’re just way too big.
RAY: He was small?
MINDY: Yeah. A six-incher. [Laughs] Average.
RAY: If you could change anything about this business, what would it be?
MINDY: I wish things were as busy as they were a couple months ago. I hear performers aren’t making the money that they used to. Which sucks, because this is such a cool industry. I just wish everybody was doing better. I mean, I’m not suffering obviously because right now I’m a new face. But I don’t think I’m probably getting as much per scene as girls did in the past. Especially from the smaller guys who can’t afford to pay what some companies still are paying. I just wish people could be making more money because it could be such a happy little family.
RAY: Any interesting scenes coming up?
MINDY: I have a footjob scene coming up. I have no idea how to do this! [Laughs] I feel like calling all my guy friends up and saying “can I give you a footjob? I need to practice!”
RAY: Non-porn wise, is there something that really fascinates you?
MINDY: I love hip-hop. I know, I’m supposed to be a hippie and listen to The Beatles — but I hate them! I’m into funky stuff and old school. I also love to paint and draw and decorate and make art. I love to restore furniture.
RAY: What do you see in your future?
MINDY: After porn? Family, kids. If I have any kids out of my own body, I only want to have one. But that’s only because of the situation today. I think people should have two kids to carry on the family. I don’t want to miss out on the experience of having a child, but I would rather adopt. I would love to adopt as many kids as I could afford. And when they get old and move out of the house I want to be a foster parent. I love kids! I just feel that it’s selfish to want to have my own child. There are so many kids that need love in this world. At the same time, I think having a child with somebody is such a special thing if I get married or stay with them for a long time. I don’t think I’ll ever actually get married because marriage is a religious institution and I’m not religious.
RAY: What’s the hottest sex scene you’ve shot so far?
MINDY: In the first one I did for Pure18.com, I squirted twice. I was so shocked! It was so hot. I’ve done it before with my first serious boyfriend. Obviously sex on set is never going to be as fun as in your personal life, but this came close!
RAY: Where can people find you?
MINDY: On AmateurAllure.com and people should also keep their eyes peeled for littlemindy.com and mindylynn.com
