20 Questions with Melissa Monet

Some of you may remember Melissa Monet from her first stint in front of the camera back in the mid-nineties, while others have recently seen her in her more recent work with Triangle Films, Sweetheart Video and Lethal Hardcore. To be honest, it doesn’t matter when you were introduced to this gorgeous lady, as long as you know to keep an eye out for her because she’s one of those women who always shines on screen. If you don’t believe me, here’s what Triangle Films’ director Kathryn Annelle has to say about working with Monet:

I’ve worked with Melissa on several occasions, and she always brings her best game. She did her first scene for me with Ginger Lynn, (WGMN), and it was truly breathtaking! Melissa is great, she’s not afraid to just go for it and that’s saying a lot. Melissa, like most of the women I work with, is able to find beauty in the women.

Melissa has a huge role in River Rock Women’s Prison. Her character, “Madam”, a lifer who’s seen it all and has somehow found a certain comfort where she is was written specifically for her. She naturally fell into the role and it was amazing watching her as she put her “claim in” for Justine Joli over the course of shooting this. When she finally got Justine alone, and away from the madness, she owned her! Some of the hottest sex I’ve ever witnessed!

Of course, there’s more to this self-proclaimed cougar than what you’ll see in her films, which is why we asked her to share a little more about herself! For industry insight and a few great personal stories from a woman who’s definitely got a lot to offer, check out our latest installment of 20 Questions.

1. How (and when) did you get started in the industry?
I started in July, 1994. The person I was dating at the time wanted to be a porn star and he ummm… had some short comings. I went with him into the agent’s office to offer some moral support. They didn’t hire him but they offered me a job.

2. If you weren’t in the adult industry, what would you be doing?
I really have no idea, but I would probably have gotten back into the mutual fund industry doing some sort of accounting. If I would have stayed in the sex industry (I was a Sex Surrogate in the early 80’s) I would probably be some sort of sex shrink… or dead; who knows?

3. What’s the best thing you’ve learned or best advice you’ve received from industry?
Wow… that’s a loaded question. I learned a lot about making movies. When I first started, there were filmmakers in this business. We shot on 16MM but some people were still shooting on 35MM. Then there were those who were shooting on Beta SP and so on. The process used to be so fascinating to watch and I loved hanging out and learning all that I could from these very creative individuals. Best advice would be to save your friggin’ money!!!

4. What’s the funniest thing that’s happened while filming?
You mean besides the giggle fest that is Ginger Lynn? I swear, every time I’m on set with that woman I need oxygen. It would be a hard call because I derive way too much pleasure from other people’s faux pas, so I think I’ll just keep mum.

5. What do you think is the biggest misconception about women in the industry?
That we all picked this career path as a last resort, or the “end of the line.” I guess there are a few pet peeves; like assuming we all come from screwed up backgrounds or that we’re all uneducated or oversexed lunatics… well, maybe the latter is true.

6. What did you do today?
I just finished writing a parody script for one of my regular clients and talked on the phone with Julia Ann (one of my BFF’s). I also played with the dogs and caught up on a bunch of e-mails.

7. What would you rather have done today?

Finished writing two scripts instead of one, played with the dogs and took a really long bath.

8. If you could do a movie with anyone (living or brought back from the dead) who would it be?
Alfred Hitchcock or Orson Wells… I am a huge fan of both directors.

9. Who is your favorite adult performer?
Old school… Marilyn Chambers, she was so damn hot! RIP Marilyn.

10. You’ve got 20 bucks left to your name; what would you do with it?
Feed the dogs first, if they’re fine I’ll spend the rest on necessities.

11. If you were president, what’s the first thing you’d change?
I’d kill a lot of Government waste on State pet projects; that money needs to be put into education. I want a Rhodes Scholar running the country I live in and I want a hell of a lot of them to choose from. When I’m in my rocking chair I want to be able to sit back and say: “yeah, 20 candidates and each one is better than the next”… as President, I made that possible.

12. What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done?
I don’t think I’ve ever been embarrassed, but I did laugh my ass off when my friend decided to have some pictures developed. They used to have store fronts where the pictures would come out in the window display and lo and behold, there she was in the altogether with a very large penis in her mouth. You should have seen the people passing by… still cracks me up.

13. Which is your favorite project that you’ve worked on?

I wrote/directed and produced a documentary on the porn industry many years ago. I’m super proud of that movie.

14. If you could have 1 superpower what would it be?
Would the ability to speak multiple languages count? No, I guess not. The power to conjure dreams would be nice; a way to inspire without giving someone something they haven’t earned.

15. Meat or veggie?
Both. I love a good steak but I cannot live without tomatoes.

16. What is your favorite book?
“The Great and Secret Show” by Clive Barker is one of my all time favorite books, but I have so many favorites in different genres I could write a book on that alone.

17. What is your biggest pet peeve?

I hate ignorant people who try and pass laws to protect me against… me!

18. What is your best piece of sex advice?
Masturbate…and explore your body. How could you ever be happy if you don’t know what pleases you? I don’t think women take the time to really explore their bodies. Light the candles turn down the lights and put on your favorite music. Sit in that bathtub and use the water spigot, go buy a toy, hell, buy a Violet Wand, but do it. If you need ideas, read erotic literature. I taught myself to squirt with a book…hey, why not?

19. What is your favorite adult movie?
Behind the Green Door and Sex World; I saw both movies when I was fairly young and they left a wonderful and indelible print on my little psyche.

20. Tell me one thing you’ve never told anyone else.
I have a secret spot inside my pussy that makes me cum instantly. It has to be hit/touched/pressed a certain way… back to question 18! Seriously, I would never have found it if I wasn’t looking for it. I knew I liked when someone/something rubbed against that spot, but when I did it I was able to put more pressure on it and get the leverage I needed to send myself through the roof.
