Jelena Jensen Interview

Captain Jack Interviews Jelena Jensen

I recently met Jelena at the Exxxotica show in Chicago and I asked her to do an interview. This big-titted babe was all about about it and our schedules finally coincided where we were able to talk. We had a wide ranging interview and she told me some things that surprised me, like the fact that she shoots boy/girl on a regular basis! Read on to find out more!

Jelena Jensen

Captain Jack: Tell me about Jelena Jensen.

Jelena Jensen: I was born and raised in LA. My grandparents raised me for the majority of my life, my dad’s parents. I did live in Washington State for Junior High with my dad but, other than that, I’ve lived in California my entire life. I went to San Dimas High School, which people laugh about because of Bill and Ted.  I always did well in school, I loved going to school. I graduated high school with honors. I was always very active in school. I was in student council since I was 11 years old. I did all the honors and AP classes and I went to college in Orange County and went to film school and graduated Magna Cum Laude from there. It was while I was in college that I started working in the adult industry.

CJ: You’ve been in porn for 13 years or something like that, correct?

Jelena: Well, I’ve been on camera for 13 ½ years now but I’ve worked in the business for over 15 years now.

CJ: What were you doing before that?

Jelena: When I was in college and film school, I didn’t even know that the job I applied for was even in the adult business. It was the summer between the sophomore and junior year of school. I got this job at a marketing company but I needed another job. I was working full-time in the summer but when school started, I needed another job. I couldn’t find anything for a month and a half. I went online and looked at the classifieds. I figured I would get a customer service job because I had held a job like that in between the freshman and sophomore years of college. All this job said was ‘internet fulfillment’. I sent in my application and the controller called me and I said, ‘What exactly do you guys do?’ She just said, ‘Internet fulfillment.’ I didn’t want to get into more details because I didn’t want them thinking that I didn’t know what I was talking about. So I go in and they told me that they sold DVDs online. I had just gone in my boss’ office and couldn’t see the warehouse and nothing about it said porn. So I went through the interview and they really liked that I was in film school and all that. They ended up hiring me and they actually created a job for me because I couldn’t work regular hours because of school. They made me their product manager in inputting all the new releases. Right at the end of the interview, they told me they sold porn and asked if I had any moral objections to it. I said that it was fine. I had never even watched porn before I started working there. So we went to the back of the warehouse and I saw all the porn and that’s how I started working in the business. So I started working there in July of 2001 and the next January was the first AVN I ever went to. I was a product manager but they also made me their marketing manager. So I was in charge of running all their big shows. I ran the booth and I was always super popular. All these directs wanted to shoot me and I said, ‘No no no, I’m going to college. I’m not going to shoot porn!’ It wasn’t until my second AVN that Vince Vouyer, who I had become friends with, said, ‘Why don’t you do glamour modeling? You don’t have to have sex with anyone, just nude!’ I didn’t even know that there was this whole softcore side of the business. So at AVN 2003, he introduced me to Suze Randall, Andrew Blakd, Scott St. James and people like that. I ended up coming back from that show and went and did some test photos and, within a month, I had my first photo shoot, which was for Club Magazine with Scott St. James. For 6 ½ years, I just did softcore, Playboy and the like. I shot for Andrew Blake and did all the magazines and shot for Danni.com and all that kind of stuff. I actually shot boy/girl for my website then I shot some hardcore girl/girl.

Jelena Jensen

CJ: I was going to ask if you’ve been tempted to shoot boy/girl so I guess you’ve already done it!

Jelena: It’s funny, people don’t ever think that about me because everyone knows me from shooting for all these companies and not from my website. People don’t realize that I shoot boy/girl. I’ve been shooting it for about 7 years now for my website.

CJ: So that’s good to get the info out there!

Jelena: Yes, even today, someone on Twitter said something like, ‘Oh, I wish I could see you with a hard cock!’ I told him to join my website. (laughs)

CJ: Are you bisexual or do you prefer one over the other?

Jelena: I am married and am married to a man. I’ve been with him for nearly 8 ½ years. I do love women. One thing as to why I’ve never shot hardcore girl/girl was because I actually have had a few experiences in my personal life when I was 21, when I first got into the business, and they were not that great of experiences. That’s why I love shooting softcore, I get to play with boobs, I get to make out with girls and that’s great but that’s all!’ But then the industry got a lot harder. There was a period of time that the industry went really hardcore. Today, you can’t really be a softcore model and survive. You can’t make a decent living off only being a softcore model. It got to the point where my website was my bread and butter and I didn’t really have a lot of work beyond that to keep my name out there. So I would take a day and hire a girl for my website. I’d pay her so I owned the content and I could see how it goes. If it’s good, I’d release it and continue to shoot girl/girl. If I don’t, then I don’t ever have to release and no one would expect it out of me. (laughs) Because once you shoot something, people expect you to keep doing it. So, I hired Sandee Westgate who’s a good friend of mine but we had never shot together. It was a great experience and after having a rough couple experiences with women, I finally realized that I do love women. I am for sure bisexual but, at the same time, I like to explain to people, they assume that because we’re bisexual that we’re attracted to every person that falls under that category. No. Just like when you’re heterosexual, not every single person of the opposite sex do you want to have sex with. I’m kind of the same way, in my real life, I’m extremely picky when it comes to women. I don’t just hook up with anyone.

CJ: Before porn, were you very sexual? Did you sleep around a lot?

Jelena: I was, kind of. I did when I was single. (laughs) In college, I had the same boyfriend for the last two years pretty much. And all through college, I had the same boyfriend for all four years. In a sense, I was promiscuous and slept with a lot of people but, at the same time, not a lot. That’s why I always tell people, I’m better in a relationship because when I’m single, watch out! (laughs)

Jelena Jensen

CJ: Have you ever brought girls home for your husband?

Jelena: I do not. And we’ve never had a threesome in the 8 ½ years we’ve been together. Even though he shoots for me for all our boy/girl content, we’ve never done a threesome on camera either. It’s one of those things where it might be ok but, even in my personal life before my husband, I’ve never had a threesome or group sex with someone I have feelings for. I don’t want there to be a situation where it causes a problem. Every threesome I’ve done in my personal life has always been when I’m single and maybe with a guy that I’ve been casually dating but never someone I was in a relationship with.

CJ: When performing with a woman, do you prefer it to be just the two of you or do you like toys?

Jelena: I’m not a big fan of toys just because a man with a cock, you can feel everything. You can feel if it’s going in at the wrong angle or not wanting to go any farther. With toys, you can’d do that too much. For myself, I don’t like people using toys on me because I’m extremely sensitive  and I have a tilted cervix so I get bottomed out on easily. People think porn porn stars  can take so much. That’s a big reason why I don’t shoot with other men other than my husband. It’s very easy to hurt me and make me feel like puking. (laughs) My husband actually cares about me not hurting so he’ll never push me to that point. It’s hard, especially using glass toys or really hard toys, they can go in at the wrong angle. Because I have that experience, I’m kind of scared to use it on other girls because I don’t want to hurt them as well. I’m not a big fan of using toys. There are plenty of other ways to use your mouth and hands. I also find you don’t really need that stuff and it’s kind of a deterrent.

CJ: You mostly play characters in your scenes. Do you have any interest in pure sex scenes?

Jelena: For my site, I typically just do sex scenes. The biggest reason why that is is because of the sheer fact of paying for a day out of my own pocket, I need to shoot as much content as I can. I can’t spend the whole day shooting one or two scenes, I need to be able to shoot more than that. Girl/girl websites don’t make the money that they used to so I can’t afford to be shooting all the time. It’s fun to play characters, especially when I’m working on a feature. Those are fun but I prefer to shoot sex scenes. Thankfully, a lot of companies I work for let you drop the character once you’re having sex but, for me, I just want to have sex with that girl. (laughs) I don’t want to have to play a character and have to be constantly thinking in that character’s mindset because it kind of takes it away for me, I’d rather just have sex with that girl.

CJ: How do you deal with working with girls who aren’t into girls?

Jelena: (laughs) Thankfully, I haven’t had to shoot with that many of them. Thankfully, a lot of times, the director will ask me if there’s anyone specific that I want to work with. So if I get to do that, I know that the girl is into girls. There have been times that I have been a little rougher with girls because I know if they’re gay-for-pay, at least if you’re not going to fake it enough to make it believeable, then I’m going to push you a little bit. I’m not going to let you have an easy time at it. I won’t be super mean to the girl but I’ll do things like shove her panties down her throat and things like that. But there’s only so much you can do, you have to do the scene. Thankfully, I work with a lot of younger girls now because I’m in my mid-30s. Some of them are really good performers and you can tell they’re into girls and then there are other ones who are either not into girls or not that great of a performer. But I do feel like a lot of these younger girls are into girls. A lot of this younger generation, they’ve grown up with porn so accessible, they’re more sexual than they were 20 years ago. I also recently read a thing that millennials, which is the generation right behind me, they don’t really like to put themselves into sexual categories anymore. They kind of relate to loving everyone. I’m not stereotyping them all, not everyone is like that but there have been studies recently that say that.

CJ: You are often paired with younger women. Do you ever want to work more with older women?

Jelena: I do. I would like to work with girls my own age more than I get to just because sometimes it freaks me out with their age. I have a sister who’s 12 years younger than me and I shoot with girls younger than her and that’s just really weird to me sometimes. A lot of these girls, I’ll be on set and me and the director will be referencing something and the girls has no idea what we’re talking about. Like, I shot with Veronica Rodriguez for Girlsway and we did a Ferris Bueller spinoff and she didn’t know what Ferris Bueller was. So we described to her the movie and wondered, ‘How could you have never seen this?’ A lot of times, I’ve been on set with these girls and what’s important to them and what’s going on in their lives, I have nothing in common with them so it’s tough to relate to them. I’ll go in and do my scene and that’s it. I don’t really have much to talk to them about. I shoot with 19-year old girls all the time and they were 6 years old when I started in the business. Some girls were a year old when I started! Also, women my own age are more comfortable with their sexuality and it’s a different kind of scene. Girls my age have sex differently than girls in their late teens and early 20s.

CJ: What advice would you give to a girl who wanted to be a G/G only performer?

Jelena: The first piece of advice I give to anyone entering the business is to make sure this is something that you really, really, really want to do and that you’re ok with it following you around for the rest of your life, because it will. The stigma has changed and it’s a lot more acceptable than it used to be, even when I first got into the business. It wasn’t as common to say ‘I work in porn.’ But now because of the internet and social media, girls don’t have a problem being porn stars. So even though it’s more socially acceptable, it does follow you around, it will affect jobs you may want down the road. Also, because of the internet, expect everyone and anyone to see it and find out. Don’t think mom and dad won’t find out or grandma or grandpa or whoever. Anyone you think will not be ok with it, is going to see it. That’s my first thing. The second thing is, if you come in doing girl/girl, I don’t have any specific advice as a girl/girl performer. You won’t make as much as those that do boy/girl, that’s why a lot of the girls end up doing boy/girl, even the girls that say they’re not going to. I always said I wasn’t going to do boy/girl but, at the same time, back when I said that, I wasn’t with someone who I am going to be with for the rest of my life and he’d be ok with that. I have done things in a very unconventional way in this business. So I have a different take on a career in this business. I don’t have any specific girl/girl only advice.

CJ: Eva93 says that you have mentioned on the Girlsway forums and on Twitter that you really want to work with Lana Rhoades. Is it just her looks or is there another reason you would like to work with her?

Jelena: I’ve actually never met her. I’ve been on set with Stella Cox and they’re really good friends. I saw photos of Lana and she’s just so beautiful. I would say one of the most beautiful, newer talents in the business. Also, being a brunette with big natural boobs, my fans typically love to see me with girls similar to myself. They like older/younger but to find a girl who looks kind of similar, I know the fans would love it. Hurry up and book us together! (laughs)

Jelena Jensen

CJ: Do you have any fantasies that you would like to live out on camera?

Jelena: I don’t really have any. Maybe there’s one thing. Remember JM Productions back in the day with their Violation of… series? It was all girl/girl scenes. I’ve never done a big scene that’s a group sex scene with all girls where I’m the focus. The most I’ve ever shot with is myself and 3 other girls but it’s never been where I’m the focus of the scene.

CJ: Aya wants to know if you were given a girl/girl showcase, which performers would you choose to be in it with you?

Jelena: Oh that’s a hard one. Let’s see. One for sure would have to be Dani Daniels. She’s a great one to work with. Another would have to be Vanessa Veracruz. She’s a good friend of mine. We shoot together a lot for ourselves. No one has actually booked us together for a scene. We have never shot for another company together. I would beg and plead to get Andy San Dimas out of retirement. She was always one of my favorites to work with. The last one, I have to cheat. Anikka Albrite, Carter Cruise and Adriana Chechik for the gangbang movie we just talked about.

CJ: What have you learned about yourself sexually since joining porn?

Jelena: I would have to say that I really love women. When I first got into the business, it wasn’t something that I was into. The other stuff with boy/girl and everything, I don’t feel like that’s brought anything new out. Over the years, realizing that I really love women and the female body, that’s crossed over into my personal life.

CJ: What are you like off-camera? What are your hobbies and interests?

Jelena: I have 2 giants dogs, a St. Bernard and a Mastiff. I’m a huge dog person and all about rescuing dogs. I’d have a million dogs if I could. I just love to be around my dogs. I love snowboarding but I don’t get to do it very often when I’m in LA. I love to go hiking. I love to travel. Just a regular person. I love to cook. I cook from scratch.

CJ: What’s your specialty?

Jelena: I good pretty healthy because I’m pretty much vegan. I eat seafood and eats but I don’t eat meat or dairy. I like to find recipes. I had a friend who had a big barbecue pool party on Saturday and I made a regular mac and cheese and a jalapeno mac and cheese for everyone else then I made a vegan, gluten free one for me. I always like to find things and change it so I can actually eat them.

CJ: How can the fans get ahold of you?

Jelena: My website is jelenajensen.com Twitter and Instagram are both @JelenaJensen
