Busy, busy, busy. Performer Jessie Rogers has shot 100 scenes since entering the adult industry soon after she turned 18 in August 2011. AVN caught up with her while she was recuperating from her recent boob job, which expanded her assets from an A to a D cup. She was eager to get back to performing: “I’m waiting for the bruises and scars to heal up, because it doesn’t look good on film. If it was up to me, I would go to work tomorrow. I’m fine. I can do things now.” (Rogers is pictured here pre-boob job, in Cuties 3, from Elegant Angel.)
What did you do before this?
I worked at Hooters, and I was in high school.
How did you get started?
I contacted an agent and basically got started right away. On the Craigslist ad it said “modeling” and that’s what I was looking for, but on the phone the lady said it was porn and I was like, “OK, whatever, I want to do it.”
How is making videos different from what you thought?
The whole opening-up-to-the-camera thing, I had to get used to that. It’s not like normal sex. Once I was in Miami and this guy was having wood issues and he had to keep looking at his phone to look at pictures of his girlfriend because he’s totally in love with her. If you’re only thinking about your girlfriend, don’t fucking do porn.
What’s the biggest misconception outsiders have of the adult industry?
Everyone thinks—especially my mom, I don’t know where she gets this stuff—that it’s such a traumatic experience for girls. It’s not. People don’t know that we get tested for STDs every 20 or so days. People think we just fuck everyone and catch a bunch of STDs.
What three personal items would you take if you were stranded on a desert island?
Water. People call me a fish because I drink so much water. Tanning oil, because there’s nothing else to do. And towels.
What’s the most valuable life lesson you’ve learned?
Not to trust people so easily. I’ve been burned several times by people I trust. I’m too nice sometimes, and people are not nice. I think people have good intentions, because I do, but it turns out that they don’t have good intentions and they screw me over.
How would your best friends describe you?
Nice. Horny. Fun. And pretty responsible, too.
What’s the most interesting scene you’ve done so far?
I just did one not long ago for Manuel Ferrara. It was fetish-y. I was tied up at one point, I had a ball gag in my mouth, and they let me do whatever I want. Usually when I get to a set they say you can’t choke, you can’t do this, you can’t do that. They allowed me to do all that. It was really fun.
Who do you want to work with that you haven’t worked with yet?
James Deen. If Sasha Grey was still around I would really want to work with her.
Describe your dream sexual scenario.
I really want to get gangbanged. Six or seven guys. I always pictured a cock in my mouth, and one in my ass, and one in my pussy, and me trying to jerk the other guys off ... I think it would be cool.
How do you spend your free time?
I like hanging out with my family. I love going to different restaurants. I love food. I love to go to Brazilian steakhouses and eat a lot of meat. I love flan for dessert.
If you weren’t doing this, what would you like to be doing?
I’d probably be in school, studying psychology. My mom studied it for a while and a lot of people in my family have issues so I’m intrigued to learn about that kind of stuff. I’m very patient and I’m a good listener, so I think I would be good at that.
Do you have a long-range plan?
I’m pretty much dealing with it as it comes. I’m going to be taking acting classes because I want to get into mainstream-type acting. I used to do mainstream modeling in New York; it’s not impossible.
How would you spend your last day on earth?
Doing that gangbang with those seven guys. [Laughter] With some girls around, because I like girls too.
Is there anything else we should know about you?
I don’t like being tickled. A lot of my exes used to tickle me and then try to have sex with me, and I’m like “No! What are you doing?” That’s a turnoff.
