Recently retired porn star and chef Mariah Milano was nice enough to do an interview with me! She is very lovely and you will enjoy this.
Q: Hi Mariah, you just retired from shooting adult movies but what made you get into the industry in the first place and how old were you? A: It was 9 days after I turned 18 back in January of 1998. I ran into an old friend who was on her way to shoot and she took me with her, I met everyone and they offered me $1500 to do my first scene. I was a single mom so I did it.
Q: How was your first shoot? Great or were you nervous? A: I had only been with one guy in my life and I was terrified. I am still a shy person but back then I was painfully shy so it was very awkward.
Q: Hundreds of movies later, have your attitude towards porn or sex changed at all? A: Towards porn, very much so. The industry has gotten so crazy with all the girls working full time as escorts and only shooting movies on the side. The testing is a mess and I don’t trust any of it. Especially now with someone I have known and liked for 14 years fraudulently altering tests. It just reinforces my feelings that porn is not for me.
Q: Do you ever look back and watch your old movies? Do you feel like you improved a lot from your old performances? A: I have some of those old scenes on my site and some of them are good but I was so shy and so young. I really improved when I got older in every way.
Q: If you had to pick, whats your favourite and whats your worst moment during your career in porn? A: My Favorite moment was probably winning the award for best website in the Miss Freeones contest last year. Very proud moment because it was for my site (Mariah XXX) which I have put so much work into and voted on by the fans. A great honor. The worst…getting fucked out of my check when I shot my first scene back in the business by Justin Slayer in 2007.
Q: We’re all about the boobs here at Boobie Blog and when you first got started you had lovely boobies which you then decided to get enhanced into bigger boobies. Did you always want bigger boobs or did you do it because of your career in porn? A: Not at all. I had left the industry in November of 2000 and got my boobs enhanced the following month. I didn’t shoot another scene until 2007, so the boobs were for me and only for me.
Q: And for the lucky SOB who gets to play with them! Anyway, I think Dinner with a Porn Star (Dinner with a Porn Star) is a great idea because I think every guy
would love to have a sexy woman cook for him, especially if she is naked under the apron. How did the idea come about? A: I love to cook and food is very stimulating and in a lot of ways similar to sex. I did a cooking webcam show and decided to make a site out of it. I have since expanded it to include travel photos and videos and reviews of my travels around the world.
Q: Is there any particular food you think is sexy? A Banana? A: I don’t see food in that way. I don’t think mixing food and sex at the same time is sexy. I think that sexy food is something exotic and filled with layers of flavor and textures. Like Oysters with the taste of the sea or a great plate of pasta or a very rich dessert. That can be very sexy to me if it’s presented properly.
Q: You also travel on your new site. I always find that I have lots of sex while on vacation, is it the same for you and why do you think that is? A: Hotel room sex is amazing. It ads so much to the experience for some reason. I think it also has to do with experiencing new things being very sexy in many ways.
Q: Do you think you would ever be able to bring your cooking / traveling site to a TV network or are you happy with the site as it is? A: I actually already have 2 cable networks who are going to be running my cooking and travel segments. One in Germany and another in the UK and I have been in discussions with a major US cable network as well. So stay tuned!
Q: Where would your dream place to travel be? A: I have been to most of the places I wish to visit but I think Mauritious is my dream vacation.
Q: Thanks again for doing this interview and if you ever travel to Toronto you are more than welcome to come by and cook me lunch for a special Boobie Blog episode! A: I will be in Toronto this weekend and thank you for having me!
