Interview with a Porn Star (#69): Janet Mason

Janet Mason interview
I Shoot Porn: You’re my 69th interview!

Janet Mason: How appropriate!

ISP: And a totally cliche way to start it off. Anyways, let’s talk about what we talked about on the way to the glory hole a few days ago. About your early swinger days.

JM: I hadn’t even started swinging yet. This was in the earliest stage — we had no idea what we were doing, except putting feelers out for guys.

ISP: When was this all going down?

JM: Pre-internet. Maybe ’91.

ISP: What was the name of the mag?

JM: Unreal People. I’m pretty sure that was it. They had two publications, actually. Real People was targeted to a more, how do I say it…vanilla sex crowd. Unreal People was all about interracial.

ISP: Unreal! In a nutshell, describe how it worked.

JM: You’d submit a photograph to the magazine. A picture. Back then it was Polaroids. If they accepted it, they’d assign a code to your ad, and if people were interested, they’d write to the magazine with your special code. Then the magazine would forward that mail to me. They’d send me a letter — with Polaroids in the envelope. And their code, so I could respond back.

ISP: That sounds like a lot of time and work.

JM: I know! We’re so spoiled now! Just go to AFF or Lifestyles Lounge. We’re still members of Lifestyles Lounge. Anyways, one day the people who ran Unreal People called Steve (Steve Mason, Janet’s husband) on the phone. They had an unusual request. That…um….someone was in town and didn’t have time to go through the regular channels to contact us.

ISP: Let’s back up for a sec before you go any further. You’re in to black guys…

JM: Yea, I found that out because the first interracial porn movie I had ever seen featured Ray Victory. Ever since watching that first IR movie, I was very intrigued by the taboo in interracial porn. It just sparked something in me. Um…I’d never seen a black man and a white woman have sex. The contrast was very erotic. Ray Victory had the biggest dick I’d ever seen, too. This was the early nineties, so I was wearing white pants (laughs) and I was so awestruck watching it…I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I’d never seen anything like that before. We hadn’t even rented that movie. Back then Adam & Eve would send out commercial mailers. We were on their mailing list, and one day Adam & Eve sends us a VHS tape with a catalog. The quality of the VHS was bad, and they didn’t show the whole movie…they wanted you to buy the good quality, full-length movie from the catalog. And that’s where we watched the Ray Vicotry scene. Anways, after watching that my pussy was so wet the white pants I was wearing were soaked…as Steve said, it wet mark was the size of a dinner plate. Which lead to our subscription to Unreal People.

ISP: Continue with your Unreal People story now, please.

JM: Anyways, the folks who ran Unreal People had a special person in town, and that special person wanted to meet us. They told Steve, “you won’t believe this, but we have Ray Victory in the office right now.”

ISP: How did you react?

JM: Bear in mind we’d never had an IR Experience before…let alone my fantasy guy. I freaked! And then I flaked. NO NO NO NO NO. Can’t do it!

ISP: You flaked on Ray Victory.

JM: I passed. I chickened out. I was too afraid to take my fantasy to reality.

ISP: Do you think that’s dangerous? Taking fantasy to reality?

JM: In our case, no. Me and my husband talked about it so much it didn’t. I was worried about that. What if I liked it so much I wouldn’t want Steve? You just don’t know, I guess, until you try it.

ISP: So how do you deal with jealousy in an open relationship?

JM: For us…we talk so much we’re always comfortable with something before we venture into it. I’m always the really hesitant one to take the lead…but once I do! (Laughs). Whoops! I just created a monster.

ISP: This is how Janet Exposed came about?

JM: Well, it started off as a foot fetish site. I would only show my feet at first.

ISP: How do your feet look?

JM: I have really sexy, petite, high-arched, soft little wrinkled soled feet.

ISP: Say that 10 times fast.

JM: Then I started with OK, I’ll show my face. But I’ll never get naked. Then one night I said, OK, now you can take pictures of me in my lingerie. And then…decided I’d get naked. I was into IR then, but I didn’t want to take any pictures of my experiences. That all changed, too. Pics…then video tape. So, someone we knew liked our content. He encouraged us to sell videos. VHS videos! We did really well, too. Mail order only. Send a money order and get a video. We’d copy tapes and ship them out. It’s always been a mom-and-pop business…to this day.

ISP: How did you get into making the porno rounds?

JM: The pro world? I was in LA for a “Foot Night Party”. It’s a party where guys come to party…and worship your feet.

ISP: That’s one thing I never got. Still don’t. Feet.

JM: It’s a huge world, and there’s so many diverse kinks within the Foot World. It’s hard to put in a nutshell. Men love to worship my feet, and I love to have them worshiped. It’s a Goddess thing, I suppose…if that makes sense. Anyways, I’m in LA for Foot Night Party and prior to getting here, someone told us about Girlfriend Films. I was just starting to explore my bi-sexual side, so I contacted the owner and set up the shoot. I had no idea what to expect, because up to that point I was in my own little world. Afterward, I had such a good experience with Girlfriends I went on. Funny thing is, I did this all backward. Most girls start in the pro world and then try to open their own site. I did the opposite.

ISP: And your site was free, initially.

JM: We loved our experiences so much we just wanted to share! It made us feel like we weren’t the only ones in the world! When the internet first started, you’d go on and think, this can’t be real. It was unbelievable. Porn stars, to me, didn’t look like they were into the sex. We were. And then, other people would write to us and say that they could tell I was into it. It’s genuine. I have sex with guys I’m really into. It’s the real deal. My site just resonated with people, and it’s nice to know that people appreciate us. I answer all my e-mail. This isn’t a corporate thing. I do what I love and love what I do.

  1. Janet is simply amazing. Let us know Billy how many scenes she did with you guys and just a few details of each. Did she do another gang bang this time around? All I’ve heard is that she did a double Vag with both guys cumming in her pussy at the same time. Oh do tell more!!!!

  2. i am a 27 yr. old man how needs to be in porn. i am well equipt and would luv to be in movies. you can call me on my cell or email me. cell: 541 905 0110 email:lorenzo.murphy@live.com

  3. This interview seems chopped off and edited too much. Janet Mason deserves more than that…she is an adult Internet legend. Also, no one care whether or not YOU “get” the foot fetish thing…this is supposed to be about Janet. I’m not into feet, either, but a ton of hers fans are, and so is she. It’s not abouut you.

  4. Billy you need to get Janet Mason some nasty interracial work with BOB. She is scheduling some time in July for Pro work. We need to see another Bro Bang with more guys and a larger Gang Bang with possibly her first Pro Anal and DP.
