Sadie West is just your average, everyday, girl next door type who loves to wear comfortable clothes, hang out with family and chill out. The thing that separates Sadie West from all the other girls like that is that she is scorchingly hot, fucks like a beast and is one of the hottest porn stars on the planet. It was that quality that led porn powerhouses Digital Sin and New Sensations to sign her to an exclusive contract making her the second contract girl on the studios' roster. Now with a number of films under her belt, Sadie West is no longer the fresh faced cutie with a killer body just dipping her toe into the world of hardcore porn. She is ready to take her role head on and do the best she can while porn is still fun. In this exclusive interview with XRentDVD's Big D, Sadie West dishes on landing a contract so early in her porn career. reveals she doesn't take the porn lifestyle too seriously and discusses how she is able to stay fresh in porn to the point she has sex off camera just as often as she does on camera.
Big D: Most contract girls in porn land their contract by going through a progression of doing a lot of gonzo porn, much like your fellow contract girl Ashlynn Brooke did, in order to get noticed by a big studio like Digital Sin and New Sensations. That was not the case with you. How did you go from being a relatively unknown girl in porn to being the latest contract girl for Digital Sin and New Sensations?
Sadie West: I guess it all started when I started dancing and stripping. My pictures eventually made their way to the internet and I was noticed by a few agents through the internet. The agents introduced me to New Sensations after a couple of weeks. I did a couple of movies for them and then they signed me to a contract. Everything has been really good. They treat me really well. I love it. I love what I do.
Big D: So how did you come to the decision to make the leap from stripping and just being a dancer to doing hardcore porn?
Sadie West: At first I was kind of iffy about it because I've always been curious about it. I knew I could do it but I didn't do it sooner because I didn't know what my parents or my friends and family might think. That's kind of what held me back. One day I just said, “Fuck it”. Literally it was just one day I said fuck it and called my agent to set up an appointment to meet up with him. I had just thought a lot about it. I thought about the pros and cons of it all and I realized that this could be the next stepping stone to where I want to be. It's a stepping stone to me is how I look at it.
Big D: Has it turned out to be what you expected it to be?
Sadie West: Yeah, actually it is better. I just realized that I am comfortable where I am at right now in my life. I like who I work with and I enjoy myself when I am at work. I am happy there.
Big D: Why do you think landing a contract was so easy and so quickly attained for you? Most girls work years as a free agent hoping to get noticed for a contract and they never do. Here you are and you get snatched up by a really great porn production company right out of the gate before any of your movies hit the market. Why do you think it happened that way? Were you seeking a contract from the start or did it just work out that way?
Sadie West: No, I didn't know what to expect. I just kind of came in there thinking it would be fun and cool. I'd do some porn, make some money and have some fun while I am doing it. They told me that they wanted to put me on a temporary contract and see how I worked out. So I shot a few scenes for them. My first scene was a girl/girl scene and then they signed me. I wasn't expecting anything. I am still learning as I go.
Big D: You mention you are still learning. What have you learned since getting in that you didn't expect when you first got in?
Sadie West: Just how the industry works in general. How people create relationships with the people they work with and how it is really like you are working with your friends. You become a lot more open minded about things.
Big D: Now that you said, “fuck it”, and jumped into doing hardcore porn, how have you and your decision been received by those that are close to you?
Sadie West: As you know, of course, you are always going to get a negative reaction but I choose to not place myself around those people. I made this decision and to me it is not self-destructive. I am not doing drugs and I am saving my money in order to get ahead. My parents, I think they are just happy that I am taking care of myself. They see it as it is a safe industry. I get tested and they know I am taking care of myself. I think people, especially my parents and my family, were afraid porn was just sex and drugs and partying. I still live in Oceanside which is a little north of San Diego and I don't really party that much at all. I just hang out at the beach a lot. I have a pretty mellow lifestyle and I think that they see that. It truly is just a job.
Big D: Seeing how you are on contract, work in porn as a contract girl is a lot less physically demanding than if you were a free agent getting booked on all different types of projects. Are you a bit relieved knowing that your family had concerns about your well-being that you are on contract and not getting burned out working every day?
Sadie West: Hell Yeah. That's what it crazy about this business. You can make really good money but you have to work everyday. That's hard on your body. I don't want to get sick and upset and to the point where I don't enjoy it and don't do it on my free time because I have been fucking all day at work. So yes, I am very relieved.
Big D: You mentioned being on contract is like working with family and friends. How is it working with the other girl on contract for Digital Sin and New Sensations, Ashlynn Brooke? Do you get to work with her all that often?
Sadie West: She is awesome. She is really awesome. She gives me feedback on how to be better. She is really cool. I think it would be a lot harder on me if she wasn't there. She is kind of like my big sister in the porn industry. She teaches me things. She tells me not to get caught up in the drama. She tells me to focus on the company and performing well. Just being with your family and keeping it real. She is a really honest person and she has a lot of integrity. I look up to her. It is good to look up to someone who has morals and integrity rather than someone who does drugs or talks bad about people. She is a really good person.
Big D: Even though you had only been on contract with New Sensations for a short time, you were a big part of the movie Hearts & Minds #2. That is the movie New Sensations was putting in front of all the critics in hopes of getting a lot of AVN award nominations. Did you know going in that this would be a big movie for you and did you feel the pressure after they asked you to be in it?
Sadie West: It was awesome. It was a cool experience to be a part of something that big. They put a lot of money, time and effort into making a film like that so it was really awesome to be asked to be a part of it.
Big D: Do you prefer those types of movies or do you like the hardcore gonzo types where you shoot one scene and pretty much call it a day?
Sadie West: It makes for a longer day. I like both kinds but those feature type movies are definitely a longer day. It kind of sucks about that part but both have their pros and cons, good and bad.
Big D: For a contract girl for a large studio like Digital Sin and New Sensations, what is a typical month like for you? How many days are you actually shooting for a movie, how much is taken up doing promotional appearances? Take us through a typical week or a month for Sadie West.
Sadie West: I do three scenes a month. That's not bad at all because I want to have sex anyways. (laughs) There are photo shoots and signings that are fun too. They are not that much of my time. Maybe a week out of the month I do those. The rest of my time I will do appearances and bachelor parties and stuff like that. I also spend a lot of time with my family. I live next to the beach so I am always there.
Big D: Now that you have been on contract for a little bit, what are your plans for your future in porn? Do you have a deadline as to when you want to be out so you can go back to school or do you want to stay in as long as possible?
Sadie West: I plan on taking it day by day. I don't want to get ahead of myself. I just want to work hard and see where this takes me. I am just going to keep doing what I am doing. I really don't know what the next year is going to bring. I don't want to get ahead of myself. My dad always taught me to expect the worst but hope for the best.
Big D: What are your expectations for the upcoming AVN Awards and Convention that is going to be in Las Vegas?
Sadie West: I am looking forward to being out there and creating that fan base and meeting everybody. I went to that convention out in Africa but this is the one in Vegas. I hear all the time only good things about it. I am really excited. I am very excited.
Big D: Since you are relatively new to porn is it kind of weird to have fans?
Sadie West: It is a little awkward. It's different and new. I like it. It turns me on to know that I turn them on. They watch me having sex and I like that.
Big D: Have you had anyone recognize you as a porn star and approach you about it?
Sadie West: I don't really know. I really don't pay attention to that type of stuff. There have been a few people, but not too many. I really don't look like I do on porn box covers when I am out and about. I am normally wearing hats. Right now I am wearing sweatpants and a sweatshirt and a hat. I really don't pay attention to that if someone recognizes me. I've had a few people approach me and tell me they saw me in a movie. I'll ask them which one and they'll normally say something like, “I don't know the name but it was that one where you were giving a blow job to that guy.” I'll say, “Oh yeah, that one. Sure, I know exactly which one you are talking about.” (laughs)
Big D: Who have you worked with that have really exceeded your expectations since getting into porn?
Sadie West: Oh yeah, there are a few people that fit into that category. I like working with Mark Ashley because it doesn't look like a sloppy scene. We're both on the same page. He is not going in one direction when I am going in the other direction. We're on the same page so I know it is going to be easy. I like Ashlynn (Brooke) because she is really good to work with. I like working with everybody. Variety is the spice of life. I also like it when I work with new people too.
Big D: Speaking of Ashlynn, has she ever recommended someone you should work with because she has worked with them before and found them to be a good fit?
Sadie West: Yeah, we talk. We have had our talks. We talk more about the guys' dicks and how they feel more than if we should try to work with one guy over the other. We will talk more about the guys we don't like working with and to avoid them. I won't mention any names but we normally talk about the guys we don't like than the ones we do.
Big D: Anything upcoming that we should keep an eye out for that is a great representation of what Sadie West is all about?
Sadie West: Not really. They are all good. I really don't know the names of the movies off the top of my head. They are all good. Anyone interested in my stuff should just go to my page and view the trailers and see what they want to get. You see I really don't take this too seriously. To me it is just sex. Everyone takes it so fucking seriously that they know the movies and the names of people. Dude, I just go to work and I fuck and I make my money and I chill. That's all I really do. I show up to work every day and I love what I do but porn is not my life. I live in San Diego. I don't hang out with porn stars. I have a couple of friends. I go to work and I come home. I feed my cats and I hang out with my family. I am a simple person.
