Okay everyone, this is my last interview for the evening.
It's getting late and I should really be getting some shut eye.
I make mention of being up late as it's kind of appropriate, considering I'm interviewing adult film star Sunset Thomas.
1. How did you get into this industry?
I signed up to do a magazine shoot, it was one of Larry Flynt’s magazines, I think it was Chic. And they flew me to Mexico for the shoot. I’d never been out of the country so it was very exciting—plus I was just 18 years old. The shoot went so well that I got the cover! After that experience I signed on to do a solo scene in Mr. Peeper’s 25. I feel in love with being naked in front of the camera—and the rest is history!
2. What was it like to get your own TV show?
Being on HBO’s hit series Cathouse was wonderful. Many fans don’t even know me from porn or Penthouse or Hustler, they just think of me as a TV star. As for my reality series Sin City Mom, that is a web-based show that brings viewers into my home and family life. I love that show and hope that someday it’ll be on TV (www.sincitymom.com).
3. You've written a book. Can you please tell us a bit about it?
My book is titled Anatomy of an Adult Film and I had so much fun writing it. It seems every porn star does a biography and frankly, everyone’s life is kind of the same so I decided to do something different. By creating characters I was able to pull from all my experiences and bring people into the world of adult films, magazines, strip clubs and brothels. I kind of think it’s more real than most biographies!
4. Do you still do modelling work?
I still model on occasion and do signings and stuff. I also write for Dog House Boxing and After Dark in the LA Weekly.com. I’ve also danced here in Vegas with the X-Girls at the Flamingo. I’m not shooting movies but I’m far from out of the biz.
5. What has been your favourite film?
Working for Michael Ninn allowed me to perform in some of the best XXX features ever. I loved Sex and Latex and Misty Beethoven. Of course my final film, Into the Sunset rocked because I selected a fan to be in my final sex scene. I also really enjoyed filming Sunset’s Gangbang.
6. What’s coming up next for you?
Well, I’m working on swingers trips to Cabo. Working on another book. I’m writing a lot and always considering the many pitches I get.
7. Is there an event or charity you would like to bring to my readers’ attention?
I’m going to be doing a huge show at the Green Door in Las Vegas on October 29th. I’ll be teaching and demonstrating oral sex techniques—live on a male and female fan!
Once again, I’ll be pushing the envelope. And about once a year I return to a brothel to have fun with my fans (I was at Sheri’s a few months back). As for a charity—folks should give where they can, when they can!
Thank you to Sunset for opening up to us.
I hope the readers enjoyed this interview as much as I did. I found it fascinating!
