FOX: How does a standard day go for Mina Leigh?

Mina Leigh: The days I do porn scenes start the night before with lots of sleep. There’s a whole routine of grooming and staying healthy when I do this work; it can be very taxing on the body. But after a shower, I go to my shoot. I love getting hair and make-up done. It’s like this silly childhood fantasy of being pampered comes true and I get goose bumps of joy and flattery. I always enjoy doing the “pretty girl” photos, which is actually my favorite part. I have some previous experience in modeling, so I’m in my comfort zone. I still get nervous before scenes, especially when it’s talent I’ve never worked with. Sometimes there’s chemistry; sometimes there isn’t and sometimes I’m just shy. Either way, I push past it and try to do the best scene I can, no matter what I’m feeling. I approach all work that way. After a scene, I shower, eat and nap.


You’ve just started shooting porn scenes. What is your favorite scene so far?

My favorite scene is also my first scene with James Deen. In this scene, I didn’t have to play a character, nor did I know how a porn star should act, so I just got to be myself and have sex like I would have in my personal life. He’s also a great performer; He knows how to bring a lot of energy out in his scenes while maintaining hot poses. Though, I have to admit, I went a little crazy, sometimes compromising the poses. But what can I say? That’s what amateur is all about—reality.

Hey, we’re never going to complain if you’re enjoying your work. Moving on, the planets all fell into alignment and nobody has a scene for Mina Leigh to shoot today. You’ve got a full 24 hours to do whatever you want and nobody to answer to. How would you spend that day?

Well, I don’t remember the last time I had no one to answer to; That’s a foreign concept to me. I’m on my laptop all the time when I’m not doing scenes. I’m a web designer, so I’m juggling that life with my porn life. But if I didn’t even have to do that, I’d be writing and working on my artistic endeavors. I’m obsessed with developing my art and hope one day I get more notoriety for that than my pussy.

I can certainly understand that, although after watching you in action I hope you take a loooonngggg time to perfect your craft. You look tiny! Are you even 95 pounds? How tall are you?

Yes, I’m petite, but no, I’m not 95 pounds—rather, 105 and 5’4″. When I started in the business, I was about 10 pounds heavier. As a belly dancer, it’s sexier to have curves, but I realized it’s not as flattering on-camera, so I changed my diet to lots of protein (fakin’ bacon, eggs and fish), salads and whole fruit, and quickly lost the weight.

Five-four and 105 is still pretty damn petite. What genre of porn do you like working in best so far? Why?

I prefer anal shoots. They’re my favorite scenes to watch, so why not be in them. I also love girl-girl, but I have yet to just do an all girl-girl scene. Too bad they’re not in high demand—I love women.

Apparently we can look forward to a girl-girl anal strap-on scene somewhere in your future. Let us know when that shoot comes up so we can put it on the calendar!

(Laughter)

Are you feature dancing as well?

I never feature danced, but I am a belly dancer—and I never involve stripping in my routines. Belly dancing is a celebration of the female figure that takes lots of strength, technique and mood. It’s the ultimate art of seduction, yet it embodies female power.

Has anybody offered you work that you turned down flat? If so, why?

Yes, during my first week in porn, my then agent got a call for an anal cream pie shoot for me and I turned it down. It’s a sanitary thing.

I can understand that. I’m disappointed, but I can understand that. Tell us one thing about Mina Leigh that nobody knows.

I’m not your average porn chick, by any means. Actually, I’m a total hippie in certain ways: eating local, organic foods; cooking for myself; supporting local businesses; encouraging thoughtful conversation whenever possible. I, however, am not the type of hippie that’s preachy, judgmental or lazy. If I bank in porn, or in any of my other future endeavors, I would love to put my hard work into philanthropy. I have this dream of creating a self-sustaining, green, urban community. Hopefully, my projects will encourage accountability and social responsibility just by their atmosphere and communal structure. I’ve also mentored children in my past and hope to put my focus into that again.

Do you have favorite male and female performers?

That’s easy; James Deen and Joanna Angel. I love their sense of humor in the Burning Angel movies.

Okay, the director on the set is bored and he wants you to come up with any scene that you want. What do you do and who are you doing it with?

First, I’d like to say that I feel like most porn falls short exploring sensuality. There’s nothing wrong with hot penetration, but I love tongues, hands strokes, kissing—and that doesn’t mean softcore either. Tease me to the inevitable; I love foreplay. And please, fucking add a sexy rim light! As far as the scene, I want to make it an epic movie about international spies and assassins starring Belladonna, Sasha Grey, Evie Delatosso, Mz Berlin, Roxy DeVille, Katsuni and me, but I want to play a Turkish belly dancer. I also want a French punk burlesque scene too with Joanna Angel and a few hot Burning Angel girls. Have it be a film noir porn. Of course, it’ll have lots of crazy group sex, girl-girl, anal, dps, even fetish amongst all the top secret betrayal.

Tell us the sluttiest thing you’ve ever done.

Isn’t porn slutty enough? I recently did a scene that was an anal peep show, where one guy fucked my ass while three other guys watched then they came in my mouth. That’s pretty slutty! My personal life is not that vivid.

That’s pretty slutty, but to answer your question, FOX believes a woman can never be too slutty. So when you wind up your porn career, what do you think you might do for a living?

Well, I’ll keep doing websites throughout my career in porn, but I hope to expand my professional creativity in larger projects. I’m a dreamer, so maybe I’ll be lucky enough to be a philanthropist and make my dreams of a better world a reality.

Would you like to say anything to your fans?

Look forward to lots of hot anal from me soon!

Oh we do Mina, we REALLY do!
