Blonde bombshell Sarah Vandella has been performing in the adult entertainment industry since 2007. In that time she’s graced countless DVD covers and worked for every top studio in the business.
The 5’3 beauty has received 12 AVN Awards nominations – including Best Actress and two for Best Supporting Actress – and XBIZ Awards nominations for MILF Of The Year and multiple Best Actress nominations.
When she’s not on set, you’ll find her cranking up rock and metal tunes, volunteering in her community, or just hanging out in Long Island with her friends.
Rock Confidential caught up with Sarah to talk about her career in Adult, her favorite bands and what she’s up to next!
How are things going Sarah?
I’m fantastic! It’s great to catch up with you!
Let’s start off by finding out what you were like when you were in high school – were you shy, outgoing?
I was pretty shy in high school because, I was kind a chubby and a little self-conscious.
When did you first become comfortable with your sexuality?
I became comfortable with my sexuality probably when I was in my early 20s.
Do you remember the first time you saw porn or any adult material? What was your initial reaction?
Yes, I always enjoyed watching porn. I was turned on from it the first time I saw it, and I still am!
Did you have any misconceptions about the porn industry before you started?
No, I didn’t. I went in completely green with no information and no expectations.
Looking back, how do you remember your very first year in adult?
It was lot of fun, but overwhelming. Nobody sits you down and teaches you how to be a porn star, or how to find caramels, and how to open up for lighting. You have to figure out that shit on your own. If you’re good at it it shows, and if you’re not then that shows too.
Did you have anyone give you advice when you first started? Do you think the adult industry needs more mentors for new talent?
No, I believe that the adult industry needs to screen talent to make sure that they’re aware of what they’re getting into. They have to come into it mentally, physically and spiritually able to handle it!
If you were to write your own sex scene with just things you get off on, how would it go?
I would have a gangbang for sure!
What about your career is most appealing?
I love everything about shooting porn!
Despite what the mainstream media reports, I’ve always seen most porn as being empowering for women. Especially the ambitious ones. Is that how you see it?
Yes, absolutely YES!
What’s been the biggest challenge as you’ve grown your career in Adult?
I honestly can’t think of any challenges.
What part of your personality gets you into trouble the most?
I am such a flirt! It gets me in major trouble!
How do you envision your future in Adult? What else would you like to do?
I want to keep shooting! By no means am I done, and eventually I would like to have my own production company or a directing line for a company.
What are your thoughts on tube sites?
My only thought is that they suck.
With the rise in popularity of “free” porn on tube sites, the business model has been destroyed – very similar to how torrents and YouTube have destroyed the music industry. What is the most effective way for performers to make a living in Adult?
Be smart with your money and don’t get stupid.
What has been the coolest part of your career so far?
It’s amazing being able to travel around shooting porn.
What kind of music do you listen to? Who are some of your favorite bands?
I’m a classic rock girl! My favorites are Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
What was your first concert? Who have you seen most recently?
My first concert was James Taylor with my parents, when I was a kid. The most recent show I went to was Ted Nugent.
What was the first album you bought with your own money when you were younger?
I bought Duran Duran’s Ordinary World.
Who do you listen to if you just want to rock out?
I rock out to Metallica and Van Halen!
What are you up to next?
I have some more shoots coming up, feature dancing, attending conventions, and shooting porn!
How can your fans get in touch with you?
Thank you Sarah! What would you like to say to your fans to wrap things up?
Thank you, I love my fans and I love what I do! I appreciate you so much! Keep paying for your porn, and please continue to support; so we can continue to provide adult content!
