Kelly Madison Interview

Kelly Madison Talks with Captain Jack

Kelly is an absolute legend in the adult industry. She started an amateur site with her husband Ryan Madison, and built that into a porn empire. Her companies — Kelly Madison Media, PornFidelity and TeenFidelity — shoot fresh content every week. While they are known for showcasing new talent and creampies in gonzo scenes, Kelly Madison Media is taking a new direction. We talk about all of that in this exclusive interview!

Kelly Madison - Pornstar Interviews

Captain Jack: Tell us a little background about yourself pre-porn?

Kelly Madison: I was working in the commercial printing industry. I was the person that sold to advertising agencies, the pre-press, the scanning of the images… that whole archaic industry. It was great because I was exposed to tons of different industries. One of my clients was a porn producer. He was doing the worst stuff in the entire world. He was producing pee videos. He was making, at that time in the mid-90s, $500,000 a year! They were the worst VHS peeing videos ever! I thought, ‘I can do this!’ (laughs) So I didn’t do the peeing videos but I met my husband, who was one of my employees at the graphics company, and we thought, ‘Why don’t we start our own company?’ So I started out being in front of the camera just because we didn’t really know what we were doing, trying to hire talent was hard because there weren’t a lot of agencies around back then and we weren’t privy to how to go about it professionally. So I ended up in front of the camera and we started an amateur website and it went from there. Now that I’m 50, it’s nice to have a production company and be behind the camera. It’s fabulous. So life at 50 is really fun!

CJ: In your productions, when Ryan performs, do you hold the camera?

Kelly: We have camera people because I tend to want to move the camera around. I’ve done it a few times and I cock it too much. People that are watching have their heads sideways. It’s not good. (laughs) They kind of get that dog look when they watch them, it’s not good.

CJ: I have to get back to when you were in the professional environment. When you were working there, you have huge tits, did you have to tape them down so you didn’t get leered at? Did you get sexually harassed a lot?

Kelly: I actually got more sexual harassment and was more uncomfortable in the regular world, so to speak, than I ever felt in porn. It was definitely more uncomfortable and people said, ‘Oh, she doesn’t know anything.’ I got blown off more.

CJ: Just for the record, I do have to ask, what size are those things?

Kelly: What’s so weird is that they got bigger and bigger as time went on! I was told by a really good friend, Diane Hanson who used to edit Legs, Sex and Juggs back in the day, that told me they were going to keep growing. ‘No, Diane! Noooo!’ They just kept growing. I think they’re like a 34 G now. It’s just ridiculous. Thank God for online bras, that’s all I have to say.

CJ: Do you have back problems or anything?

Kelly: No, because I have wide shoulders. I’m still pretty active physically so it’s never been a problem.

CJ: You started the amateur site, then how did you transition into more professional porn?

Kelly: It was totally organic. We started out with Ryan and I, then it was me solo, then we shot POV because he didn’t want his face on camera. We decided to start doing scenes with other girls and that’s how Porn Fidelity came to be. Then Ryan said that it’s kind of hard to hold the camera and have a threesome so we hired a camera person, It was a very organic thing that happened from 2001 to present day being able to work with really talented, eager people. A lot of them, we found just haphazardly that weren’t in the industry at all. Ryan would take them under his wing, this is how you do it, this is what we want, this is how we want it shot and it grew from there.

CJ: Ryan’s still performing, correct?

Kelly: Yes, we won’t let him retire. He’s my #1 stud. So we are not letting Ryan retire because he’s so good at it and he’s cheap labor.

CJ: Most of your productions are creampies. Is there a reason you went in that direction?

Kelly: Ryan started it. Back in the day, about 10 years ago, he was shooting all of the content for Porn Fidelity, Teen Fidelity and KellyMadison.com. He was our only male talent and we got such good feedback about the creampies and, on our website, we have an area for people to give us their comments. We just got a great response. So we thought, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! It went on from there and a lot of the male talent we hired was, ‘OK, sure, whatever you want!’ So we tried to stick to that same theme. In this day and age, it is difficult to stand apart from the other companies out there. We’re all fighting for our own individual identities. At least with the creampies, it gives people something that they can expect. Especially with us changing our branding like we’re doing right now with Ryan only being in one of the three scenes we update a week, we try to keep some things the same. People don’t like a whole lot of change at once.

CJ: Where do you come up with the ideas for your films?

Kelly: When I get to work with just Ryan’s productions, it’s kind of fun because we go back-and-forth. But when we have our other directors shooting, we ask what they want to do, we’ll pay for it. We don’t give them a lot of restrictions. We let them run with it. They’re both very creative and we don’t want to stand in their way. We give them suggestions here or there but we have directors, we have sound people, we have 2 musicians who write and create soundtracks and we feel if we give them too much, we feel like we’re limiting them. We don’t like being told what to do so we don’t really want to tell them what to do. They can make greatness and we don’t want to step on it because of our ego. Let them do what they want to do.

CJ: You mentioned the musicians… you create your own soundtracks?

Kelly: Oh yeah. In fact, at last AVN, we won for best original soundtrack. It was really great because the two guys that worked on it have a band. It was for Altar of Aphrodite.

CJ: In the 17 years you’ve been in it, if you could go back in time, is there anything you would change?

Kelly: If I went back in time, I don’t think I would have taken my youth for granted. ‘Oh, I don’t know, I feel fat today’, I look back and wonder what the hell was I thinking? I should have enjoyed the moment and gone with it and not let the little insecurities come my way. That’s the best advice I can give to any female performing now, don’t get caught up in your own head. Feel good about yourself, make choices where you still respect yourself and your body. Thank God, back then, I didn’t have to deal with Twitter and social media. God damn, I thank God I didn’t have to deal with that!

CJ: You said you’re changing you’re branding, so what can we look forward to?

Kelly: Basically the best content we can possible provide. Our directors have great ideas and are writing great material. The emphasis is on art, passion and hardcore. It’s always going to fall within that category. If someone’s looking for gonzo porn, back in the day, that’s what we did but it’s not really what we are anymore. We’ve been moving into that area for a long time and just wanting to have the tools, the equipment, the editing to do something artful. It might not make a lot of money but, you know what, it makes us happy! At the end of the day, that’s what you have to do. We’re not thinking ‘this is what people are going to want to spend their money on.” We’re doing what we think is cool. ‘This editing is cool’ or ‘this music works here’ …we’re putting our love into it. I’m just hoping that it’s able to be understood in the marketplace.

CJ: Is anything special coming up?

Kelly: We just came out with a really cool line recently called A XXX Documentary and it’s great! Andy Zane, our director, interviewed each of the talent and wanted to know their take on porn or how people view them or how they feel about sex and then actually show them in a scene having sex. It’s great. That’s the one we just released. XBiz and AVN were kind enough to promote it and Hot Movies has been promoting it for the last four Mondays.

CJ: And how can the fans follow you on social media?

Kelly: The websites are kellymadison.com, pornfidelity.com and teenfidelity.com and they all share the same members section so one join gets you all three sites. We update each of those sites once a week and it’s good content! I’m KellyMadison on Twitter. @TeenFidelity and @PornFidelity have their own twitters. Ryan is the Teen Fidelity twitter.
