LOS ANGELES—It didn’t take long for Jessica Jones to venture into the deep end of the porn pool when she arrived in LA in July.
In fact the 19-year-old newcomer did her second scene in the Valley with the three-time AVN Male Performer of the Year Lexington Steele, throwing down with the legendary stud for Dogfart’s site.
“It was great,” Jones tells AVN, admitting she did not know who Steele was before the scene.
“But now I do—I learned all about him. I actually was a journalist in the scene so I asked him questions and I did get to learn about him, which was cool.”
The Tampa, Fla., native is proving to be a quick study on the set, where she’s receiving high marks in multiple hardcore scenes since her summer debut. Her growing body of work includes performances for , , , Mofos, DadCrush, and , among others coming soon.
On the day of her Fresh Face interview, she had just worked with veteran performer Ike Diezel for Team Skeet.
“Today he was my stepdad. I was reminding him that he has to take his heart medication, but I gave him the wrong pills—they were his boner pills,” Jones said with a smile. Staying in character until the end of their hook-up, she added, “he pretended he came inside me but I didn’t know and we had to get Plan B and I was super upset.
“I’m starting to show more of my wild side now because I’m not as nervous any more.”
An exotic beauty whose mother is black and white and father is Japanese and white, making her half white, a quarter Japanese and a quarter black, Jones knew she had a naughty side long before she got into the industry. She says she watched porn “all the time,” returning to sites such as FakeTaxi and Reality Kings and seeking out scenes with her favorite performer Riley Reid before deciding to jump in herself.
“I was one of those girls you would have no idea she’s a freak,” Jones jokes. “I’ve actually had some of the people from my high school find out I’m in the business and they’re like, ‘What the hell?’ Which is super funny because they would never expect that from me because I’m like that shy, quiet girl in the corner. But really I’m a freak.”
She held down jobs at Little Caesar’s pizza and Winn-Dixie grocery store before landing at Hooters in Tampa, where she stayed for seven months.
recalls “that probably led me little baby steps” toward porn.
“Because that’s where I started foot fetish,” she says. “I had somebody buy panty hose from me and then buy my shoes and socks and he was like, ‘I’m actually a foot fetish photographer.’ Then I made an Instagram and I got into that and have been doing that since.”
She also dabbled on webcam with sites such as CamSoda and MyFreeCams before doing her first ever scene in Phoenix. That led to a handful of bookings in Florida for notorious sites such as Bang Bus, 8th Street Latinas and First-Time Auditions before she came to LA and signed with .
She says for now she’ll continue to commute to LA from Tampa for scenes, but “I really, really like it and definitely want to move.”
“I have to see what happens because I have an apartment with my friend right now,” says Jones, who turns 20 on Nov. 25.
When she isn’t shooting, she likes outdoor activities such as hiking.
“I like going to springs down in the Florida—I’m a nature girl," Jones says. "And then Busch Gardens is pretty fun because I have a pass for that. It’s roller coasters and a zoo type of thing.”
Without question she says her favorite kind of sex is “rough.”
“I like being choked and slapped around, I’m really into that,” Jones confesses. “I don’t really like sensual stuff.”
