Today, I just might be the happiest person alive since I am publishing an interview with pornstar, Briana Banks. Yes, that Briana! I know right, I am becoming more and more of a serious deal. However, whether it is a porn newbie or an adult actress who is in the business for two decades, I am equality excited each time when I get an opportunity to interview a hot XXX performer.
It seems Briana has done it all. She won several industry awards, appeared on Playboy TV, shot a bazillion amount of porn movies and has an action figure modeled after her. But then, at one point, Briana simply needed a break. And that break lasted for five years straight before she finally came to the conclusion that porn is her life. After all those years she spent away from porn performing and meeting fans, Briana Banks came back stronger than ever in 2016.
Quick few words more about Briana and then we move on to the pornstar interview.
Lovely Briana was born on May 21, 1978, in Munich, Germany to a German father and an Amercian mother. At the age of four she moved to Britain and at the age of seven to Los Angeles. Briana was only 16 when she left her mother with her two years younger sister. At the age of 18, Briana took full custody of her sister. That was also one of the main reasons why Briana Banks got herself into the adult entertainment industry. She needed to get the money somehow and that was the best option at the time. Who would have thought that Briana would become so passionate about the Smut industry? Well, Briana is back and we could not be more excited about it.
Are you ready to learn more about Briana, her stage name, which scene would she be most thrilled about reliving and more? Of course you are!
1. Hey Briana! Instead of our standard interview introduction, let me ask you how life treated you during the break from porn you took?
It opened my eyes and truly made me appreciate all that I had done in my career. It made me want to come back to all my fans bigger and stronger than ever before.
2. Why did you decide to get back into porn? What made you start shooting porn in the first place?
I got back into porn because I really missed being Briana Banks and I missed my fans. I got into porn originally because, I needed help supporting my younger sister, whom I got custody of at 18.
3. What is the biggest difference between porn now and then? What do you like more about it now compared to the year you started?
The biggest difference now I think is social media. I like having better access to my fans and like them having better access to me. To be honest, I really liked seeing my fans at AVN and going to personal appearances once a year. I feel it was more personal than it is now.
