The Brutally Honest Life Of A Professional Montreal Porn Star

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a porn star? The big questions, I mean, like what it takes in order to break through onto the scene, or if it’s really as financially lucrative as it seems?

I mean, of course you’ve wondered. Everyone’s at least a little bit curious as to how porn stars live, right? And if your curiosity has ever been piqued about a handful of topics, then have I got some good news for you.

I recently had the chance to ask Canadian porn star Jessy Jones some questions about his love life, his job, and many other topics. He was super open and honest, so sit back and read on, and prepare to have all your questions answered.


How did you get into the porn industry?

I got in the adult industry because I was always both a fan of it and it was something I always wanted to do. Justice Young who I met back in 2009 was the man who helped me get into the world. He needed a guy to do a scene with his girlfriend Amy Reid and since I was a big fan of hers I said yes right away… We shot and they liked me immediately and signed me to a contract the second the scene ended.


Was it difficult to “break through” and become more well-known?

Breaking through in this business is really hard. There’s always the golden boys that get all the press and all the help from the bigger companies, and then you have the guys that have to struggle just to get a scene…

There’s some favouritism when it comes to male talent, some guys get more chances than others because of “who” they are, while some have one bad shoot and they’re never to be shot again. All this to say, yes it’s very hard to stay relevant in this business especially as a guy. Just like in many businesses it’s often about who you know and how much you sell…


Do you find there’s a difference between how male and female porn actors get treated, in your experience?

Yes I’d say there is a big difference. I work with many top talents and can tell you that girls get the royal treatment, directors will be extra nice trying to make the girls feel pretty and comfortable and us male talents are just hanging around waiting til it’s time to work… Some companies/directors just see the male talent as nothing more than pieces of meat… Yaaaa ladies, I feel you now haha.


There’s a belief in society that there’s a lot of money to be made in porn. Do Canadian porn stars tend to get paid as much as people think?

Rates are set by the companies, where you’re from, Canada, the U.K. Etc doesn’t have a bearing on what we’re paid… Who you are, your performance, demeanour and popularity of your scenes is often what sets the rate. Girls generally speaking get more than guys, but there’s always exceptions. My rate is about the same as a girl for a scene. Some dudes make 800$ a month some make 15 000$ a month, it all depends!


What’s a typical day on set like?

A day on set is usually as follows: you arrive to work and say hi to the girl you’ll be working with, the crew and so on, and immediately sit down and do paperwork, go over your script if there’s one, and find out any final details or requests.

At this point we play a little waiting game giving time for the girls to get pretty, then it’s go time. Ps: Some sets are way more fun than others. Some directors still believe in fun times on set like the good old days and go out of their ways to make it a memorable day through music, food, comedy and so on.

Like in any business, it’s the bosses (directors) that are most creative and care about their employees who achieve the most. The scenes the come out from the “fun sets” are often the best ones because we’re in such good moods when shooting!


Are there any scenes you tend to enjoy shooting more than others?

While I enjoy most of the companies I shoot for, I extra enjoy shooting gonzo porn, it’s quick, easy and its real sex… none of that fake scripted stuff with cuts every 3 min (which often goes into shooting a scene), it’s just pure hardcore real sex!


What’s it like to date a fellow porn star; in your experience, has your career ever gotten in the way of any relationships?

Dating someone in the adult industry could have its challenges, sometimes you get a girl that’s super jealous and that can truly affect your career. Sometimes a girl will tell you that you can’t work with so and so or no creampie, no kissing all that blah blah that’s honestly a part of our jobs.

Those relationships never last. Sometimes you’ll date the “nice girl” who’s a freak and loves to watch you have sex with other girls, and even ask you to invite them home after scenes!

As for me, I had a run of bad luck with dating psychopaths and hookers (not knowingly), but now am in a truly happy and healthy (for me) relationship with a wonderful woman who I love very much – she’s also in the industry, Jaclyn Taylor, check out how gorgeous she is!


Have you ever had to hide what you do for a living? How has your family reacted to your career?

I never had to hide what I do for a living, I love what I do and I’m proud of it.

It was a long and hard journey (pun intended) to penetrate the industry (oops did it again) and make a name for myself.

All my family and friends in Canada fully support me and constantly have my back and encourage me to take the next steps. For me, family is number one and real family members support you in life no matter what you do, I’ve been so lucky to have the support I do and love everyone so much.


Do people recognize you in public? And if they do, how do you react?

I do get recognized a lot in public, actually sometimes it’s a delayed reaction… People will see me and look at me like then know me.

My favorite moment is when it hits them as to who I am! I don’t know if it’s the ads on Pornhub, or sheer volume of scenes that I shoot, but I’m happy to be recognized any time and love talking to all fans. When I come home to Canada especially and I’m recognized I’m treated like a major celebrity, it’s pretty wild.


Is working in porn really a dream job?

Working in porn is a dream job but it’s not for everyone. There is a 99.9% chance that if you get in this business you will not last more than a year, male or female, so it’s really hard to be consistent and to be able to do this for a living every day.

Imagine how many people each year set out and say “I’m going to be a porn star” – it’s more than you think!

Unfortunately in this business each scene you shoot could be your last, so having off days are just not possible. Imagine being a pitcher in baseball and having to throw a perfect game every single day – I understand the comparison is a stretch, but you get what I mean. That all said, if you’re committed, you learn your craft and always bring your A-game then YES, I can tell you first hand, porn is the best job in the world and I wouldn’t change my life in any way!
