Repost: Bonnie Rotten Interview


I first published this interview of Bonnie Rotten in 2013 while she was on tour of the sex clubs in and around the Philadelphia region. At the time, she was dating  Jack Spade, a friend of mine  who modeled for me during the Penthouse days.  Jack and I have kept in touch over the years so he called to let me know they were in town. He asked that I meet Bonnie and arrange a photo shoot and interview for this blog.  Over the past eight years hence, Bonnie has attracted a large group of fans in the adult entertainment industry and currently has two million followers on Instagram: @officialbonnierotten.

Because of her rising popularity over the past 8 years I decided to repost the very informative and insightful interview I conducted during the time she modeled for me at the beginning of her career.

The Interview was conducted on July 27th, 2013:


TW: I’ve reviewed several of your scenes, obviously you are not bashful or shy.  At the age of 19, you immersed yourself in the adult industry. Did you make the right choice?

BR: Honestly yes I do. In my hometown I didn’t quite fit in and always felt like and  outcaste because of my promiscuity with the boys and girls in my school and what not. The adult industry gives me a place where I feel accepted and loved for what I do. I am passionate about my films and scenes and feel its important to make each and every one EPIC.

TW: What have you  learned about the industry thus far that you would like to share with your fans?

BR: That it’s not just showing up to set and spreading your legs. I make an effort To go out of my way to make each scene better than the last, thats how you get remembered, and to be accessible to your fans and never forget they are the ones who decide how long you are going to be around and in demand. 

TW:  You appear to be very engaged with social media with 100,000 followers on Twitter. What do you like to tweet about?

BR: I am! I love social media and talking to my fans. I tweet about upcoming projects, movie releases, what I’m doing all day. As well as cute funny candid photos and funny videos of my daily life.

TW:  When you are asked to perform a scene in a movie, are there any limitations as to what type of scene you will perform?

BR: I am pretty crazy and love to push my limits, there isn’t much I won’t do, but there are a few things I haven’t done yet!  Such as double this and double that, lol

TW: Do you select your lover or lovers for the each scene? Or is the casting the directors choice?

BR: I have my preferences because I want the viewer to see the passion and connection with me and my partner. I also try to pick them most of the time and have creative influence on the nature of the scene.

TW: What inspired you to adorn your body with tattoo’s? Which one is your favorite?

BR: I would have to say that my stomach is my favorite!!!!!! He was my first tattoo and he is a zombie from a comic book “night of the living dead: the beginning” issue number 1! I named him Henry 🙂

TW:  What is the funniest think you can recall happening during the making of and adult film? What was the saddest?

BR:  Lol…well this is a story many know. I was shooting an anal scene with a guy and another girl and we decided to make it romantic.. So I suggest we bring out the whipped cream and strawberries. Well we shoved whole strawberries and injected whip cream up my bum so I could cover the other gals face and make her my strawberry shortcake. The guy started fucking my ass and a strawberry got stuck :(!!! I was upset and a little paranoid.. But it came out a few days later lol.

TW:  What advice would you give any male or female 20 year old that is considering to enter the adult industry?

BR:  My advice to them would be: never do anything you don’t want to do. That’s a serious thing, this business Is big and people can influence you. But always do what you feel is right for you or else you may not be happy with the results. I also suggest making everything epic and special… You never know what how it could benefit or who will see your performance. 

TW:  Where would you like to be on your 21st birthday?

BR: I’m not sure! Maybe Vegas 😉 I would love to pursue my DJ Rotten career in the next year and pump up the stage in LV on my 21st!!!! I gotta get to work 😉

TW:   How did you decide on your stage name?

BR: Bonnie Rotten is a Pin up zombie alter ego I came up with and tattooed on my leg. I started pin up modeling and needed a fun name so I chose Bonnie Rotten  and it just stayed with me  , it’s also VERY appropriate 😉
