Hi, Nikki. how are you? How did you get started in the Industry?
Hello! Im great. Sitting at home in front of my Mac desktop, in my pink panties with a gray wife beater on, doing this interview. LOL Hope you are doing good!
I got started in the adult industry right before my 21st Birthday. I emailed my bikini modeling picture to an adult film director in Florida. A week or so later he had me flown out to Fort Lauderdale to film a girl/girl scene for Pleasure Productions. Right off the bat I signed a contract with them. Ive been in ever since, both under contract with several production companies and as a free lance performer.
For those people who are not aware of you, how long have you been in the industry, and what have been your best moments so far?
Ive been in the adult industry just over 8 years. I have had many amazing moments through out my career. One defining moment that catapulted my career to a new high was becoming the 2011 Penthouse Pet of The Year.
How has being named 2011 Penthouse Pet of The Year impacted you?
Its huge! Put it this way, there is only one of me in the entire world right now with that title. Haha...its been incredible! Being named 2011 Penthouse Pet of The Year has brought so much positive experience to my life and career. Traveling the world, shooting hot hardcore scenes for Penthouse, shooting beautiful magazine layouts and making appearances on behalf of Penthouse has been one amazing journey that I will never forget. Not only has my fan base widened, but it has also brought a lot of mainstream exposure, which is a really positive thing to an adult actor.
Your funniest moment in making an adult film?
The funniest moment in making an adult film was when I had a pizza delivery guy" scenario. That day I had on these brand new stripper shoes. I wasnt used to them just yet, so when the director called for me to open the door and greet the pizza delivery guy I fell backwards, flat on my back as I tried opening the door. The entire set broke out in laughter. Needless to say, I was embarrassed but at the same time I couldnt help but laugh at my self along with the whole crew. You gotta be able to laugh at yourself. Once you learn that, you are all good to go on a porn set! LOL
Favorite mainstream actress?
Angelina Jolie. Not only is she hot, but shes a real bad ass!
Favorite mainstream actor?
Johnny Depp. Hes amazing in every role hes in and hes incredibly sexy!
What do you do in your downtime?
I dont really have a lot of downtime. My downtime is trying to catch up on sleep while flying out to my next appearance. Ive been on the road back to back for the past while...and it will be like that for the next while. Im a workaholic. I love to work. Downtime is something I used to have. LOL
So when it comes to music, you say your 1st love is hip hop? Who do you like?
I love Hip Hop! To be honest, probably 75% or 80 % of my iPod selection is hip hop. Id have it at 100%, but I have to have other genres of music for feature dancing. I listen to Lil Wayne, Eminem, T.I., Ludacris, Jay-Z, Tupac, Kanye, Too $hort, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Dr. Dre, Notorious BIG.. I could go on and on.
How long have you been a hip hop head? Who did you grow up listening to?
Ive loved hip hop since I can remember. Its just part of my life. I turn to hip hop when Im feeling down, I turn to hip hop when Im feeling happy. When I was growing up I wasnt big on 80s rap, I did grow up listening to a lot of B.I.G., Public Enemy, N.W.A, etc. Some R&B as well, like Black Street and 112.
If you could pick a few rappers to do a scene with who would they be?
Lil Wayne and Eminem. I love them both! We can do a reverse Oreo cookie! LOL
Whats your favorite position?
Id have to say doggy. It just hits that spot and Im like Daaaamn!". Although, I love all of them! Sex is amazing in any position!
Do you have any fetishes?
I love latex. I have a few custom made latex outfits. Putting one of them on just turns me on...its almost like I have a power trip over it. I also love being dominated by a guy, and I enjoy dominating him.
Let's say when you're in a relationship, how is the transition from being on the set at work.. and then at home? How do you separate the intimacy? or do you keep your work and your personal relationships both intimate?
I put on amazing scenes, and I appreciate my fans telling me this. I love doing adult movies and I think it shows. However, at home its a whole different ball game. I take it to another lever of passion and intimacy. Its like a switch in my head. I can turn my on screen ; persona off when I am at home. Lets just say I am not Nikki Benz 24/7. I am a lady on the street and a freak in bed when it comes to my personal life.
On set, I let my on screen" persona take over. Think of it as my alter ego going wild. I am definitely more hardcore at work. I talk way dirtier if need be and I perform with more aggression.
Are you working on anything mainstream right now?
I work for FoxSports.com on a show called Cubed. You can watch it Thursdays at 1pm (ET) on their site and and Fridays at 11:30pm (ET) on FUEL TV. Ive been part of the show since 2009 and I have just signed on for another season. Its an Emmy nominated web series, which after a really successful run on FoxSports.com got picked up by FUEL TV. Its been a really amazing mainstream experience for me being on Cubed. I even got to go to Dallas Cowboys Stadium with Fox Sports this past Super Bowl.
I also appeared in a music video for The Dirty Pears, who are about to blow up. Last but not least, I was a part of My Trip Back To The Dark Side film, which just wrapped up its production.
If you could be 1 person for a day ( anyone) who would it be?
This is a tough question because I feel like it would vary from day to day. So today Ill say I would want to be.....a successful music producer. I want to experience that world for a day. Would be interesting since Im such a huge music fan.
What's next for you?
Next, I go back on the road for feature dancing and appearances on behalf of Penthouse. My amazing fans can check out my schedule on nikkibenz.com I am also shooting exclusively for Penthouse. Fans can check out my 3D and 2D scenes on Penthouse.com
