You started shooting porn shortly after ending a 12-year relationship. Have you talked to that ex-boyfriend since?
He works at a radio station in Beaumont, Texas. The last time I spoke to him, it was pretty bad. I think it has really affected him. I think it led him to drink.
Did he think he was the reason you started shooting porn?
He has to know he drove me crazy for 12 years. I know for sure it made him cry.
Where do you buy pants that fit your ass?
When you have a small waist and a big ass, you just buy smaller sizes and make them stretch. You buy stretchy pants. I go to American Apparel and I get all the tights. What I'm wearing now are probably smalls and they work.
They're all stretchy. Even if I wear jeans, they have to be made of at least 2 percent stretchable material.
Ho do you feel about ass implants?
I think a woman should do whatever she wants to make her feel better. I am totally for whatever a girl wants to do. It's not cheating.
She was a sex symbol, an icon, and she had a curvy body. She was thick. Also, she was similar to me in many ways. She was really nervous all the time in front of big crowds. You had to kind of pull the craziness out of her sometimes ... There is a video on YouTube of Marilyn smoking a joint that I masturbate to.
What is it about that image that turns you on?
Because that was so taboo when she did it. It's hot. And the way she moves her mouth. It turns me on.
Now that you are kind of known with your hairstyle, do you feel stuck with it?
I don't know. When I cut the bangs I said I would always keep the bangs. I grow it longer to my shoulders sometimes, then just cut it off again. But, I pulled off a really good Marilyn Monroe the other night at a party in DC. [She shows me a cellphone photo.]
Probably a scene I did with Kink.com. I had never done anything anal. They put a metal hook with a ball on the end of it in my ass then tied the string hanging from the end of it over my head to my mouth. When I moved, the hook would move in my ass. That was probably the craziest thing.
Did it hurt?
Once they put the Hitachi on your pussy, you like anything.
Is that the secret to getting women to do crazy things in bed. A Hitachi magic wand?
When your pussy is turned on, your whole body is numb.
How do you feel about being labeled a PAWG?
Phat Ass White Girl. I love that shit.
Is it more white guys or black guys who search for PAWG porn?
Everybody watches PAWGs. Asses are in right now.
Lately I've been shooting with a lot of Latin guys. I did a whole lot of interracial the first two years. Now I am playing more step-mom roles and workout chicks, so I just happen to work with more hot white boys, like you.
Going into porn at 32, what did you know that a woman who gets into porn at 22 doesn't know? Do you think you have an advantage over women who get in at a really young age?
I was told by several people when I started learning about porn that most girls only last a year. Each director shoots them once and that is it. If you have that star quality, then you stay in. But yeah, I think it is because I am in touch with my sexuality. I am comfortable in my skin. I think that shows on camera. Guys do not want to see a girl who looks like she is not having fun. Older women are much more into it than the younger girls.
Did you go to college in Texas?
I went to one year at The University of Houston. I used to manage a Lacoste at The Galleria in Houston. I moved down to Miami with Lacoste. After a few months, one of my home girls, a customer, was telling me about how she did porn. I was like fuck it. I was in a rebellious mode. I had just gotten out of that 12-year relationship. I had no idea that I was going to wake up the next morning and be going down the street with Ass Parade. I didn't realize how popular that site was.
My website just went live, MellanieMonroe.com. I'm shooting my first anal scene soon with Mike Adriano for Evil Angel.
Have you prepared for the scene with butt plugs or anal sex in your private life?
I've done it a couple times drunk when I'm relaxed and it doesn't hurt. Jew Hefner actually gave me a Mike Adriano training kit, so I have been playing with that. Once you can get to the biggest one, that's Adriano's size. I've been getting it in, so I think I'm ready for anything.
