How did you start adult modeling? Was it something you sought out?
I didn't start off as an adult model. I started off non-nude and progressed over the years in to the more adult side of modeling, which I like much better.
Tell me about your site. How do you keep it unique?
My site, RealPeachez.com, is my one and only official site. I do solo modeling and I also started doing a bit of boy/girl a few years ago. One of the ways I've kept my site unique and different is by not giving it all away over the years. There's only so much you can do when you aren't doing hardcore on camera, so every couple years I have added something new to keep everyone interested. My latest addition to my site is blowjobs! I still haven't done hardcore or even a hardcore girl/girl scene … yet. I like having the option to give the fans something they have never seen me do before, and keeping that all exclusive to my site keeps them coming back for more!
How hands-on are you with the site?
I’m very hands-on. I have worked for other companies in the past, which have never worked out. They usually give the model little to no involvement with the site. I wasn't very happy with that so I decided it was time to take things into my own hands, and I started my own company and affiliate program. Of course I have a webmaster that helps me out tremendously; I’m not great at the technical side of things. Creating the content is where I shine—from building sets to editing the photos and everything in between it’s 100 percent me.
If you weren't an adult model, what other career would you like to have?
That's a hard one since I started out as a non-nude model when I was 16. This has been the only job I have ever had; I love it so much it’s hard to imagine finding something else that I enjoy so much. I think I was born to do this. There's no other job for me besides being on the opposite end of the camera!
Tell us a little about yourself. Where did you grow up? What activities do you like?
I was born in Lancaster, Calif., and I moved to Las Vegas when I was 12 years old. I moved here at the perfect time to start learning about life and how to get into trouble. I enjoy cooking, traveling, going to the beach, boating—anything to do with water and sunshine is ideal for me.
How do you plan on keeping your website profitable in a tough economy?
We all know it’s not as easy as it used to be to make a sale on a solo girl site. But I plan on doing the same I have for my customers as I have been for the last 10 years—offering 100 percent exclusive content and being very interactive with my fans. As long as I keep being me and the content stays fresh, the fans stay happy and keep coming back for more! If all else fails I’ll just start banging on camera. That's sure to make a few bucks!
What's the biggest lesson you've learned in this business?
Don't trust anyone; sad but true. I haven't had the best luck with business partners since I started.
What's the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Being my own boss and having the privilege to travel and work from anywhere in the world is more then anyone can ask for. Not to mention I get to masturbate and give other people pleasure for a living. It doesn't get much better then that!
You've definitely succeeded at being a big name on the web. Has it always been your intention to stay there and not do any DVD work? I'm sure you've been approached. What's kept you on the website exclusively?
I’ve thought several times about working for other companies and doing DVD work, but the thing that has always kept me 100 percent exclusive to my site is I like the fact that if someone wants to see me getting naked and doing naughty things I’m the one reaping the benefits, not everyone else. It’s nice being paid per shoot and working with amazing photographers. But in the long run this is the best way for me to have longevity and be in control of what I put out for the fans to see. The web is where I started and where I’m going to stay. If I put out any DVDs I will be the one producing them, coming straight to you from Peachez.
