Hardwired for hot sex and frisky fun, 2015 AVN Award Trophy Girl Jillian Janson broke the mold when she defied her “perfect American girl” image by embracing her sexuality. Jillian grew up with a passion for exhibiting her growing sexuality, love of nudity, and her need for self-expression. Within days of becoming a webcam model, Jillian found herself flying to Los Angeles to work in adult films. Shutting the door on a normal college life, Jillian dove headfirst into the industry. She has already worked with companies like Evil Angel, Reality Kings, Naughty America, Girlfriend Films, Digital Playground and has appeared in Penthouse and Club International. Jillian was nominated by both the 2015 AVN & XBIZ Awards for Best New Starlet. At the 2015 AVN Awards she received the fan nominated vote for the Cutest Newcomer Award and a nomination for Best Group Sex Scene for her performance in Manuel Ferrara’s Reverse Gangbang 2. This year she conquered her first interracial anal for Blacked.com, her first blow bang in Facialized Vol. 2 for Hard X and her first DP in her showcase, Just Jillian. Along with being nominated for Female Performer of the year at the 2016 AVNs, her showcase, Just Jillian, received five nominations. Jillian can be seen across US clubs showing her moves off in feature dance appearances. With an insatiable appetite to explore every sexual position on camera, Jillian’s electrifying performances led her to win Best Female Performer at the NightMoves Awards 2015. With 2016 award season not far off she is looking to add more winning accolades to her resume. Jillian enthusiastically answered these reader-submitted questions.
Yourgasms.com – How did you get started in porn?
Jillian Janson – I was bullied out of high school because I was always a sexually-educated girl. I was 18 when I decided to leave my town and finish the year off as a porn star.
Yourgasms.com – How did you get your first acting job?
Jillian – I came home from school and my part-time job at the age of 18 and hopped onto the computer. I was in the mood to play with myself so I came across my favorite site and in the background, a tab of a sexy woman appeared, and it turned me on seeing her. Then after a while I realized I didn’t want to just be with her, I wanted to be her. Not long after, I signed up as a webcam model. Within days I was in California with an agency. My first shoot was easy, fun and for Barely Legal Magazine.
Yourgasms.com – What was your first day on the job like?
Jillian – Although it was my very first professional photo shoot, I didn’t really feel like I was shy at all. Since a young age my mother helped me get into the habit of being in front of the lens. She loved taking photos of me and so did the rest of my family. I eventually realized I loved being behind the camera as well.
Yourgasms.com – Do you feel as a woman you’re being exploited by your industry?
Jillian – This industry brought out a lot of me as a woman. When it comes to how I feel about porn and what it does to women, I feel it can help some women in terms of learning how to satisfy themselves, or their men. I don’t want women to feel shy or insecure about their desires. That’s part of why I do what I do. I want women to realize they can enjoy their sexuality without feeling ashamed.
Yourgasms.com – Do you feel proud of your work?
Jillian – Yes, extremely. However, if you would have asked me this a while ago, I was a little hesitant, but only because my body was undergoing its natural changes. I realized later on it was because I wasn’t quite comfortable with the way I looked for some reason. Over a period of time I realized I have nothing to worry about since my fans and many directors and photographers gave me nothing but love and compliments for my looks and personality.
Yourgasms.com – Do you have any mentors in the industry? What have they taught you?
Jillian – I look up to those who have built an empire for themselves and proved themselves strong and beautiful in this world as well as in this industry. It is powerful to place judgement on what people think of us and what we do. So it’s wonderful to see women represent such a strong subject.
Yourgasms.com – How do friends and family feel about your job?
Jillian – When I typically friend someone it’s based on how they act. I generally prefer people that understand who I am and what I like to do in life. I like to hang out with those that have the same interests, but I am not always about sex. My friends are very understanding. I have friends from the past and new friends who have no idea I do porn.
Yourgasms.com – What are the job requirements for acting in porn?
Jillian – Right off the bat I will say that having people skills is extremely important. It matters how you project your personality in this industry. If you are like me and tend to be sweeter rather salty, it will go a long way. Also acting and modeling skills, like knowing what to say and how to look at the camera, is important and adds professionalism.
Yourgasms.com – Do you make enough money acting in adult movies to live, or do you need a side job?
Jillian – Yes, I do, but I will never stop doing what I love the most, which is being myself and being the best me I can be! I make a lot being in videos, but honestly I will someday make a lot more doing what I love most and that would be mainstream modeling and acting. I also love to dance!
Yourgasms.com – Would you recommend this job to other women?
Jillian – It’s not a typical career most teens think about getting into, but I was always adventurous. I first started off as a cashier at a fast food place when I was 14, then worked at a drug store as a beauty clerk, telemarketer, and waitress by the time I was 18. I lived a certain way so this was a career for me that opened up many opportunities, but for other people it could ruin their opportunities. It depends on what they want to do in life.
Yourgasms.com – What are your favorite aspects about being an adult entertainer?
Jillian – I always loved it for the sexual experiences, such as meeting people and going to new places. I knew I’d be able to travel and I wanted to get recognized all around the world. I have an even bigger opportunity to do that since I also love to dance and became a Feature Entertainer.
Yourgasms.com – What happens if you don’t like the other performer or performers with whom you’re doing a scene?
Jillian – It is our agent’s responsibility to send over the proper information a couple days in advance of the shoot in order for us to do our part looking up the talent information so we can decide if we want to work with them or not. In all honesty our industry is pretty understandable if something comes up and you can’t shoot or want to cancel ahead of time, or if you don’t like the talent. You just need to tell people ahead of time. If you wait until the last minute to voice your opinion, you risk ruining your reputation and being labeled as difficult.
Yourgasms.com – Do you ever fall for the person you’re doing a scene with?
Jillian – No, it’s hard for me to fall in love when I’m not searching for someone to be with. I like to friend everyone, especially men. I can’t stand most women. I can only have sex with them. Haha.
Yourgasms.com – Who is your boss?
Jillian – I like to be my own boss and control my schedule. I feel those who have been working with me the last two years, such as my agent, publicist, and dancing managers, have been working under the power of whether or not I want to do something and when I want to do it.
Yourgasms.com – Who are your favorite people to do scenes with?
Jillian – I generally like to work with women lately, because I feel like it’s another world that I haven’t experienced as much. I have been having sex with men since I was 13 years old. I feel like I was bi-curious ever since I was in high school. Then my dream came true and I wanted to work with more ladies in my career. So far I’ve only worked with a few. My favorites are Jelena Jensen, Mia Malkova, Ariana Marie, Aidra Fox, and Adriana Chechik! For men I have many, but my three favorites are Chad White, Erik Everhard, and Mike Adriano.
Yourgasms.com – Are you nervous before shooting a scene? Excited?
Jillian – I don’t remember being nervous about shooting a scene since the first day I started, except when I did my first anal scenes and the first time I did a double penetration. I also got really excited when I was Trophy Girl for AVN in 2015!
Yourgasms.com – How do you prepare for a scene? What do you have to do to get ready?
Jillian – I don’t do much when it’s a BG or GG except being of good hygiene which I always am. I keep my private parts cleaned out and smelling fresh. We use good products such as douches and wipes that works for every woman to be honest!
Yourgasms.com – How do you keep your lipstick on?
Jillian – Haha, it never stays on therefore I constantly reapply it, because even though my lips look amazing neutral they look amazing puckered up with red lipstick.
Yourgasms.com – What kind of lube do you use?
Jillian – I prefer coconut oil since it’s completely natural and can be used for anything especially hydrating your skin, rather than rubbing you raw like some lubes can.
Yourgasms.com – Do you prefer to be a fluffer or the porn star?
Jillian – It’s so funny, because I love being a part of both. I love when the action is happening to me, but I also love just watching and love seeing other people enjoy one another too!
Yourgasms.com – Who is your favorite director?
Jillian – I have worked with so many people over the last few years and have done so much with each of them that I would have never fathomed to be able to pick a favorite, but I can choose someone that has taught me some things about shooting in front of the camera and has shot me multiple times: Greg Lansky.
Yourgasms.com – Are your on-camera orgasms ever real?
Jillian – I am 100% myself whether or not the camera is on me I will never fake my feelings if I’m not 100% satisfied then I will do what I need to do to myself in order to achieve that fulfillment.
Yourgasms.com – How often do you get off from porn shoots?
Jillian – I don’t watch Porn much and didn’t masturbate much last year since I was constantly working so I had other people helping me get off. Now I enjoy masturbating with my fingers to the experiences that I’ve been through in Porn.
Yourgasms.com – Does size matter?
Jillian – It never has to me, because for me it’s how you use it. Whether it’s sensual or even extremely erotic, I love all the experiences I involve myself in, but if I don’t I can focus on other things about the person that make me happy and we enjoy.
Yourgasms.com – How does it feel to have everyone watching you on set?
Jillian – When I first started it took some time, but the best way I was able to get used to it was learning how to enjoy everything that I was feeling by just closing my eyes and imagining the situation where the person and I were alone and into one another with no interruptions.
Yourgasms.com – How does it feel to know that thousands of people are watching you on video?
Jillian – I don’t think about it too often, but I feel like I help all these people and teach them!
Yourgasms.com – What do you hope happens when people watch your videos?
Jillian – I hope watching me on set is a learning experience for everyone. I know it’s hard sometimes these days to understand how to satisfy your partner, but I really want to help woman understand how to get their men off. Just touch them in exotic places and say sexy sexual things and you will make your partner go crazy in a great way!
Yourgasms.com – Is this a fun job? Do you look forward to doing the work?
Jillian – Yes, absolutely, this career has helped me find myself in many ways, especially the things that I like to do physically and sexually, so every day when I go to work I look forward to meeting someone new and doing something different, especially when I was trying a girl for my first time, or putting it in my butt.
Yourgasms.com – What was your favorite scene, and why is it your favorite?
Jillian – My all-time favorite so far is the showcase that I put together with Jules Jordan because he was the first one to ever take a chance on making an entire movie about me. It was a really great setup considering it was the first time I ever did double penetration and I am proud that his company got to film it first. I also shot with one of my all-time favorite male performers, Erik Everhard, doing the DP and in another scene featuring Ariana Marie. I also did a few more things in the movie including a blow bang and another threesome. It is currently nominated multiple times at this year’s AVN.
Yourgasms.com – What was the strangest thing you were asked to do in a scene? Did you like it?
Jillian – The thing I had stayed away from for a very long time, and only did once, and haven’t decided to do again was tossing a man’s salad. I prefer to lick women, because they are more likely well-groomed and I can handle the taste, but it’s just an entirely different experience licking a man butthole.
Yourgasms.com – Do you ever meet your fans? What’s that like?
Jillian – I’ve gone to a few award shows and conventions over the last two years that I’m proud I went to because I met the people who’ve been my fans since I started the industry! My first time was AVN during the Expo when I was signing for Jules Jordan and when I met the first fan. I made it a goal to hug everyone, take a photo, and place my hand on their heart to see how fast their heart was pounding to see me. That is what makes me smile and happy that I do what I do.
Yourgasms.com – Porn stars are always in such great physical shape. What’s your workout routine like?
Jillian – I like to stretch and do yoga, go on walks, and do runs and squats. Then I use the gym and work on arms and legs. Then there’s the obvious fact that sex is great exercise too!
Yourgasms.com – Are there any exercises or yoga poses that are helpful for staying in shape and having sex?
Jillian – Staying strong and flexible is key, so the best poses that I find work are downward dog, the bridge pose, and something called the plow pose haha.
Yourgasms.com – Does your private sex life ever mirror the movies you’re in?
Jillian – It’s funny because I use the industry as my testing ground to get ready for the future relationships and marriage I plan to be in. I have done a lot of things on camera that I thought I would never do in my real life, or even knew existed, do as well as I do. In my personal life I keep that stuff private now so it’s rare when I do something with a partner that is much more than vaginal and oral.
Yourgasms.com – Off camera, what do you consider a romantic evening?
Jillian – Anything to be honest, as long as I’m with the person that I like emotionally, mentally, and physically. I like when we can be ourselves whether it’s with our friends or just one another.
Yourgasms.com – What is your perfect date?
Jillian – I find myself to be a classy woman since I love long walks on the beach and I enjoy white wine. As long as my date and I have the same interests, anything could make it a perfect date when we are getting to know each other and having a good time. I’m a very adventurous woman that likes indoors and outdoors so I’m really not that picky as long as he keeps me warm and smiling.
Yourgasms.com – Have you taken anything you’ve tried for the first time at work into your private life?
Jillian – Of course I have a few times, but I really don’t do anal that much in my personal life since there hasn’t really been anyone that I like who has deserved going into my sacred tight hole.
Yourgasms.com – What would you like fans to know about you?
Jillian – You’d be surprised to see how much I am actually like the person I am on camera, but also how quickly I can go from being cute and fun to sexy and serious.
Yourgasms.com – What would you like people to know or understand about the adult entertainment industry in general?
Jillian – There are two sides of the industry. You can either be on the bad side or on the good side with me. It’s hard to explain, but girls get sucked into doing things sometimes that they are unsure about doing then later regret in their life. I look at everything I have done as a learning experience about who I am as an individual. I try not to get involved into anything I am not comfortable with.
