A.J. Applegate interview
A.J. has definitely grown in popularity and as a performer ever since she first started in this industry several years ago. Her recent film "Gangbang Me" directed by Mason where she gets gangbanged for the first time shows off her maturity and confidence well. Now, it's time for Miss A.J. to get a lead acting role. Her fans would like to see her in one. Perhaps, a parody of Goldie Locks and the Three Bears. She'd definitely be someone you'd like to find sleeping in your bed.
Hi A.J., your new film Gangbang Me will be released soon and it happens to be your very first gangbang experience. Why did you decide to do a gangbang at this time? With Mason being the director for this film, do you think that it mattered a lot to you that a woman directed your first gangbang?
Getting gangbanged has always been one of my biggest fantasies. When Mason approached me about shooting one for her new Hard X gangbang line, I couldn't help but say yes! We also came up with the idea to use my dance background for the tease. Mason wanted this to be all about me, and show everyone who AJ really is. With the way that my career is going, I knew that it was the right time to shoot my first gangbang. It didn't matter to me whether the director was male or female, I just wanted it to be over the top dirty & all about me getting that ultimate sexual pleasure.
Were there any particular ways that you prepared yourself for this experience like using dildos at home to get your sexual holes stretchy enough for your first double vaginal and double anal experience?
I actually didn't prepare at all for it. I wanted to go into it without thinking about it too much. I wanted my holes to just open up naturally because I was so turned on from getting this fantasy fulfilled.
Going back to the amazing Mason, why do you think that she is an incredible director? Performers especially the women really enjoy working with her.
Mason has always been one of my favorite directors to shoot for. The difference between her and other directors is she gets to know your personality, and is able to catch it on camera. She knows how to make you feel slutty, powerful, and beautiful all at the same time. After I left set that day, she texted me just to say how proud she was of me and how everyone needs to know how amazing I am. I am so grateful to Mason/HardX and Mile High for giving me this opportunity.
How long have you been in the industry? How did you get started in it?
I've been in the industry for about two and a half years now. I always thought about pursuing a career in the adult industry at a very young age. After working at a strip club and as a fetish model at the age of 19, I finally joined the porn industry at the age of 22.
What has been your most pleasurable moments so far? What has been your least pleasurable?
The first time I ever did anal was on camera for a scene I did for 'Let's Try Anal' for Mofos. It was good, but it wasn't as amazing as I thought it would be. Then I shot my second anal scene for Mike Adriano's 'Mad Asses'. That was so intense and gave me so much pleasure that I knew anal sex was definitely going to be my thing. My gangbang was of course another most pleasurable moment I've had so far! I've been pretty lucky throughout my career and haven't had any moments that I didn't get some sort of pleasure from.
What did you do before you entered the adult film world?
Before the adult industry, I was a dance teacher, and a professional dancer for pro sports teams. Dance will always be a very important part of my life. That's why I got a tattoo on my right hip that says, 'Love for Dance' in Italian.
What has been the biggest surprise for you about the adult industry since you have started?
I think the biggest surprise was how much goes into making a good scene. I always thought there was just a guy with a camera, and you showed up and had sex lol. I didn't know there was a lighting guy, sound guy, photographers, makeup artists, ect. I've also met some amazing and down to earth people. I was very hesitant about that in the beginning.
What is your favorite thing about being an adult performer?
Getting to fuck all these beautiful people of course! I just really enjoy making my fantasies a reality and getting to share that with the world. I can't believe I get paid for what I do. It's seriously a dream come true!
What makes a man sexy? What traits do you admire in a man?
I like a man that takes care of himself, and knows how to treat his women with respect. Any guy that has a good sense of humor and can make me laugh gets me every time. I'm usually attracted to the tall, dark, and handsome type. Also, if a guy has an accent I think that's so sexy!
What makes a woman sexy? What traits do you admire in a woman?
The same as a man. I like a woman who takes care of herself and respects her body. I like genuine, sweet, and down to earth chicks. I'm usually more attracted to blondes. I like a woman with a body and lots of curves!
How does it feel when you meet your fans? Do you get recognized in public?
I seriously have the best fan base anyone could ask for! They are so loyal and always support the decisions I make when it comes to my career. I always get such a warm feeling inside when I meet one of my fans. Without them, I wouldn't be where I am today. I don't really get recognized that often, but lately I've been getting recognized at the gym and airport.
Many adult stars are animal lovers. Are you one of them? Are you a cat or dog person?
I am a huge animal lover! When I was younger, I always said I wanted to be a vet, and live on a farm with lots of different animals. My favorite animal is an elephant. Elephants are so smart and such beautiful creatures. I can definitely say I'm a dog person. I have a German Shepard/Husky of my own. He is seriously the best dog ever!
How were you as a kid?
As a kid, I was very outgoing and driven. I was never the shy type. I've always had that bubbly personality. I would always want to put on shows at family parties, and sing and dance for everyone. My family always said they knew I was going to end up doing something in the entertainment business.
What are your hobbies and interests?
My obvious interests are singing and dancing. I just got my basic Zumba certification. I'd like to do more with that, and get certified in the other aspects of Zumba fitness. Also, I'm a huge fit or die person, so working out is a very important hobby of mine. I recently just got into pole fitness too.
What is your shoe size?
My shoe size is 7 1/2.
I know that your incredible hot ass gets a lot of attention by the fans, but what is your favorite part of your body and why?
Ever since I was a dancer, I've always got compliments on my back. Weird, I know lol. I do love having a sexy, defined, and toned back. My ultimate favorite body part are my eyes though. I feel very blessed to have such pretty blue eyes.
Are there any web sites or future projects that you would like to promote? What are you currently working on film wise?
I shot a layout for Hustler's Taboo Magazine which was a blast, and that should be coming out soon. I'm also, doing my first IR blowbang this month. Be sure to be on the lookout for that!
Thanks so much!
