Renna Ryann Interviewby Ray | October 10th, 2009
RENNA: I started with a little agent in Florida. After a while, my friend Bill Fisher who was with Club Jenna at the time referred me to A-List Talent.
RAY: How old are you?
RENNA: I’m 21. I’m married and I have a son. The last thing I remember, I was 19. [Laughs] I spent a year being pregnant and having my child and never leaving my house. The next thing I know, I’m 21.
RAY: You used to roll with a certain girl we all know and love.
RENNA: Oh god… You’re going to bring her up.
RAY: Can you blame me?
RENNA: The name Risi Simms is never going to go away. Ok, let me straighten this out for the record. Risi and I worked really well together. We started porn at the exact same time. We shot InTheVIP.com with my boyfriend at the time. We were going to do a solo site together, in fact. We were going to do boy/girl scenes. The whole site was going to be about us. When I tell you this girl is crazy — I mean she is really crazy. She will tell you that she hates the industry, that she never enjoyed it, and that she never made friends with anybody in the industry. Well, let me tell you — The girl lived with me. Then later I paid for her hotel room because she didn’t have a place to live. She’s just crazy. It’s one of those situations that never seems to die.
RAY: Ok, let’s move beyond that. Why did you decide to get into porn?
RENNA: I was in college at the time. I was dating this guy for about a year that I really liked, but he was constantly ignoring me. So I eventually told him to fuck off. I didn’t want to move back in with my parents. I always wanted to shoot porn, so I decided to do it. I wanted to make my own money and move out.
RAY: Why did this guy ignore you?
RENNA: He was obsessed with video games. All we did was go to school and then immediately start playing games. I ended-up hanging out with all my other roommates more than I did with him.
RAY: How old was he?
RENNA: My age. We went to prom together. He was a cool guy, but he just wasn’t very interested in sex. That’s where we differed!
RAY: What are your current projects?
RAY: What did you do before you got into porn?
RENNA: I went to school for psychology. I lived off my scholarships and was a waitress. I’m still in school now, but I’m going for biomedical science.
RAY: What are your thoughts on Swine Flu?
RENNA: [Laughs] Well as a mom, it worries me. But scientifically-speaking, a lot more people die from the common flu. I think it’s mostly hype.
RAY: I’m looking at your website now. You’ve got some nice updates on there.
RENNA: Thank you! I work really hard on it. It’s doing surprisingly well for only being up such a short time.
RAY: I see a lot of solo and girl/girl on there, but I also see a wiener. I assume that’s your husband?
RENNA: Yes! [Laughs] That’s his wiener. He’d be very mad if it wasn’t. I’m focusing on solo and girl/girl, but I will be incorporating more boy/girl. The other big focus of my site is outdoor nudity — As much as I can get away with. I love natural lighting. I’m too cheap to buy good artificial lighting!
RAY: You looked great on Amateur Allure as “Lola”.
RENNA: Oh yes! Thomas is the master. His lighting and his set-up is amazing. He made me jealous.
RAY: What’s something about you most people wouldn’t expect?
RENNA: I’m actually a huge, huge cunt and it’s very hard for me to control my mouth sometimes.
RAY: What kind of crowd did you hang out with in high school?
RENNA: Ironically, I was very quiet in high school. I think I seemed like a quiet bitch. I hate to say it, but a lot of my friends were the dorkier girls. They didn’t have the greatest looks, but they were really good-hearted people. Some of them, however, have made a complete 180. They’re gorgeous now.
RAY: How did you meet your husband?
RENNA: I did my first scene with him!
RAY: And you instantly fell in love?
RENNA: [Laughs] Actually, no… I don’t think he remembered me much. He gave me his phone number and said if I wanted to do something sometime, call him. I told him I had a boyfriend at the time, even though I had already left my boyfriend. Secretly I was boyfriend-less and sad inside. [Laughs] I remember he said “if you ever just want to hang out, I can be your porn friend.” So he texted me a couple days later and we ended up going to the shittiest movie in the world. It just clicked from there and we’ve been together ever since.
RAY: What is the shittiest movie in the world?
RENNA: Bug starring Ashley Judd. It’s a good make-out movie. [Laughs]
RAY: What’s your least favorite thing about porn?
RENNA: Everyone is going to hate me for saying this… But here goes. I love cum. I love my husband’s cum. However, I do not like to have random stranger’s cum on me. It’s just not my thing. I mean, if I’m into you — Cool. Hell, I love cum and I’m going to love your cum. But, for example — One time a guy came on me and his cum had the consistency of mayonnaise. It was probably the most disgusting moment of my life. It looked like somebody poured mayonnaise on my face!
RAY: What was your favorite scene?
RENNA: Probably anything I’ve shot for FTV. I have a sick obsession for FTV GIRLS. I know certain people will hate me for saying this, but I love the owner of FTV. I think he has such an amazing talent. I have a deep respect for him and I love his work. For Reality Kings, I also shot Pure18.com and WeLiveTogether.com.
RAY: Ever have sex with somebody forbidden?
RENNA: Well… Back when I was 15, I dated a 27-year-old drug dealer who was being watched by the Feds. One day, they raided his place while I was having sex with him. Oddly enough, this guy’s dad showed-up. I just remember him taking me home and yelling at me. Aside from that, I was a really good girl. [Laughs] I had a couple months there where I was really into doing stupid stuff. But eventually, I graduated with a 4.3 weighted GPA in the top 10% of my class.
RAY: What type of men are you attracted to?
RENNA: The funny thing is, I’m actually attracted to the exact opposite of my husband. If you would have shown me a picture of him five years ago, I’d say he was cute but not my type. He’s perfect for me now in every way, but I’m so into the David Beckham and Colin Farrell types.
RAY: Anything annoy you about porn?
RENNA: The lack of honesty. Honesty is a very rare thing in this business. I actually lose work by being too honest.
RAY: Is it common for you to achieve orgasm in your videos?
RENNA: Absolutely, yes.
RAY: What is your ethnicity?
RENNA: I am German, Native American, and English. I spent a little time in Italy. My step-dad’s family was from there. For some reason, some people still think I’m Italian or Spanish.
RAY: What turns you on sexually?
RENNA: Somebody who can take complete control of me. I love it when a man can tell when I’m horny and he just throws me on the bed and totally takes care of me. I may be a bitch, but I’m not very dominant.
RAY: Strangest porn scene?
RENNA: On a tractor out in the middle of the desert. It was a shoot for HUSTLER with Steven St. Croix. Super cool dude, but weirder than shit! [Laughs] I thought he was going to take me out the desert to kill me. It was like a 2 hour drive. As we drove, he did every single voice from Family Guy. Practically an entire episode. And he’s really good at it, too! The guy is nuts, but I loved working with him. He has one hell of a personality.
RAY: In your personal life, what’s been the strangest place you’ve had sex?
RENNA: Every once in a while, my husband and I treat ourselves to massages at this Asian place. They do the whole “walking on your back” thing. When you’re done, they put you in a sauna so you can relax. So it’s sort of a tradition we have to have sex in the sauna. I’m not sure if that’s really a strange place. It’s kind of traditional 1970′s porno.
RAY: When you said ‘Asian massage place,’ I thought this story was going somewhere else…
RENNA: [Laughs] No! Nothing like that!
RAY: How did your friends and family react to your career?
RENNA: My grandmother is the coolest person in the whole world. When she found out, she said to me “well, I heard you went by the name Lola for a while. Just so you know, when your mom was a stripper, her name was Misty!” That was my grandmother’s response to me doing porn. Until that moment I never knew my mom was a stripper. My mom’s reaction, was to hold a conference at my favorite Italian restaurant. She even printed stills from every scene I had shot so far! [Laughs] She provided them as evidence of what I was doing in case I tried to deny it for some reason. It was so funny. It was like an intervention. She trapped me. It was my favorite restaurant and she sprung it on me right after I had ordered food. She knew I wouldn’t leave because I’m obsessed with food!
RENNA: So my family, they love me. They just don’t talk about it. My friends, however — They all suck. I grew up in a ritzy little Jewish town. Everybody had money, and with money comes lonely housewives who talk shit about everyone. And from them come kids who talk shit about everyone. Those were basically my friends. So I don’t have very many friends any more. I have three or four good friends in my life outside of porn. They’re really good people.
RAY: Be who you are and say what you feel… Because those who matter don’t mind, and those who mind don’t matter.
RENNA: That’s a great quote.
RAY: Dr. Suess.
RENNA: I almost think it’s better to have fewer friends. Those are the people you hone-in on and you realize how important they are to you. I appreciate my friends a lot more now than I ever have. I feel like I’m boring you! In most of your interviews, I feel like the girls are all horny and just want to party.
RAY: That’s the nature of the beast. Have you ever been caught having sex outdoors?
RENNA: Quite a bit! I’ve been caught in every other shoot I do. The problem in Florida is if police catch you naked in public, you get put on the sex offender list. A couple of weeks ago, I got completely naked in the gardens around this very famous, very beautiful museum. There were tourists all around. I did a whole solo scene. Afterward, I went jogging nude through the garden and this woman came from the trellis in one of the gazebo areas and saw me. She made one of those traditional “shocked” faces, with her hands on her cheeks and everything! It was hilarious.
RAY: How old were you the first time you ever had sex?
RENNA: It was one week before I turned 16. So, I was 15 years old. It was with a gay guy. I have this bad habit of turning guys gay. In fact, four of my ex-boyfriends are gay.
RAY: I’m guessing the video game dude was one of them?
RENNA: [Laughs] Oddly enough, he’s not.
RAY: Was your first sexual experience a fun one?
RENNA: Actually, he was extremely tiny and I had been playing with myself for many years prior to that. So I don’t know if I can just naturally fit large objects in myself, or I had simply gotten used to it. But I really didn’t feel him very much.
RAY: What sort of objects do you use while masturbating?
RENNA: Well here’s the funny thing — I never used toys until I started doing porn. Before that, I would just use my hand. I can orgasm faster and harder using just my fingers than any toy out there. The first time I ever really felt sex was in late 2006.
RAY: Do you remember giving your first blowjob?
RENNA: Yes. It was with the same gay dude. He was obviously “straight” at the time. We were both virgins. The first time I gave him head we were in his green Mini-Cooper.
RAY: How did he reveal that he was gay?
RENNA: My first clue was when he said “Hey, you know your friend so-and-so? Well, when we went on vacation, he raped me in the butt!” [Laughs] He said this guy got him drunk on Nyquil and then fucked him in the ass.
RAY: On topic, are you into anal?
RENNA: Here’s the funny thing about anal. It’s going to sound very silly. For some reason, I find certain things in porn extremely distasteful. It just so happens, taking cum to the face is obviously not on that list. However, I find both creampies and anal extremely distasteful. In my personal life, I absolutely love anal! I can’t get enough of it. In fact, I don’t get enough of it. [Laughs] Seriously, I love it. Are you ever going to see a video of me doing it? Maybe on my website… Maybe one day. With really super-bright lights, and me trying to make it as pretty as possible. But overall, I think it’s distasteful.
RAY: How many guys did you have sex with before porn?
RENNA: I would say 6 guys.
RAY: How many scenes have you shot?
RENNA: Over 50. If you count fetish porn, probably 80 or 90.
RAY: Do you enjoy fetish work?
RENNA: I make really good money doing fetish. My most popular one is called ‘stuffing’. Basically I just make mountains of food, eat it, and burp. There are all kinds of weird fetishes out there. There are hair washing videos, where you just wash your hair. There’s tickling videos. Or “inflatables,” which is where you blow up balloons then sit on them and pop them. Sounds silly, but there are people who make their entire livelihoods shooting content like this. There are quite a few people buying this sort of thing. I just went to FetishCon this year. Another big fetish is hypnosis.
RAY: Do you personally have any weird fetishes?
RENNA: Rimjobs. I’ve always wanted to lick a person’s ass, but I think afterward I would be disgusted by them, so I’ve never done it. However, I do like to have my ass licked! I’ve had it done in porn as well as in my personal life. My husband licks my ass a lot. It feels good. Now, a guy having it done — That gets weird. You have to wonder about how comfortable they are with people going up their ass, if you know what I’m saying. I’ve been trying for two years to play with my husband’s ass and he will never let me go near it.
RAY: Any orgies in your personal life?
RENNA: No… I’m a very jealous person. I think maybe one day I might. But not yet.
RAY: So why should people join your website?
RENNA: I try to make it as personal as possible. I’m always open to suggestions from members. Every single week, I do a photo update, a video update, and a cam show. I also have my “office cam” so every day members can log-in and basically see whatever I’m doing, which is usually me sitting in my office in front of my computer working. I also have a bunch of porn feeds on there, as well as a free forum. I log in there every day and do my diary and people can chat with me. I also give my members 11 hours of free live cam shows a day. I’m trying to give my members as much as possible.
RAY: Where can fans contact you?
RENNA: People can follow me on twitter! Twitter.com/rennaryann
RAY: Is it a turn-off when fans approach you in person?
RENNA: Not at all! When a guy comes up and tells me how much he “loves my videos,” those are usually the creepier dudes. It’s the ones who come up and say “I love your work with FTV”. Those are the ones who really flatter me. It may sound strange, but my reaction really depends on the content people mention when they talk to me. If it portrays me in a good way, I’m cool with it.
RAY: So if I said I was really into that video where you got mayonnaise jizz all over your face?
RENNA: [Laughs] I’d probably tell you to go fuck yourself!
