Porn Star Chanel Preston Answers a Few Questions at the 2014 AVN Show

 

What to ask a woman who is a day away from hosting the 2014 AVN Award Show, the most glamourous event of the adult entertainment industry? There I was on January 17 at the AVN with about ten minutes allotted to chat with Chanel Preston in the media room at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

Chanel Preston co hosted the 2014 AVN Awards

She is lovely with a wholesome look. A girl you would bring home to meet your family. Chanel was the trophy girl in 2011 and was excited to be co hosting the show. By her own admission, she knows that, “hosting the AVN Awards Show is the most high profile job in the industry.”

The native Alaskan began her career in adult entertainment in 2010 for Vivid Entertainment's “Brand New Faces” series and has become one of the stars of the industry, known for both volcanic sex scenes and superior acting skills.

She was one of the nominees for Performer of the Year and was nominated for Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, and many other categories which can't be listed here. Her movie, “Chanel Preston: No Limits”, was nominated for Best Star Showcase.

Chanel admitted to being a little nervous about her co-host assignment, telling me that, “I don't do a lot of public speaking in front of huge crowds so that part makes me nervous.” She said, “I do a lot of interviews, but that's different.” When you think about it, she's usually scripted so that makes sense. At age 27, she hosts “Inside Adult” for the X3Sixty Network, the entertainment channel's flagship show. And in October of 2012, both she and her AVN Award Show co-host Samantha Saint were named Penthouse Pets.

Chanel Preston looks like the girl next door - but she isn't

Well, since she does so many interviews, I thought I'd take a different approach so I asked her what she would like me to ask her. Dead end. Didn't work. So, I said, let's have some fun with this and not talk all abut the “porn industry.” We'll go in a few other directions as well.

I asked about her childhood. What did she want to be when she grew up? I loved her answer. “When I was a little girl, I wanted to grow up to be everything. A ballerina, a policewoman, a fireman, all over the place.”

Next topic was Las Vegas. I challenged her to finish the sentence, “When I'm in Vegas I love to …”

Well, unfortunately, she doesn't get to enjoy our city that much. “I'm never here for pleasure,” she said, “I'm always working when I come here. I do like to see the shows,” she told me but lamented that that doesn't often happen.

So what about the Adult Video industry? I've heard plenty of rumors that the industry might be moving to Vegas and thought she might have some information on it. “I don't think the whole industry will be here although it's much cheaper here then in LA.” But she expects they may be spending more time shooting in Las Vegas.

I asked what's next? “I'm working on a Webisode series, similar to TV but on the web, addressing sexuality in America so my goal is after this I maybe becoming an educator about sex, a public speaker. More like personality driven TV, stuff like that.”

Did she have any regrets about her chosen profession? “Absolutely none. I like changing people’s minds about sex and women and sexuality which is a big one for me.” I wondered what was the best part of her job and her life. “Flexibility, I can travel when I want. I get to have sex a lot. I feel lucky that I have this perspective on life and sex in general sex and I feel very lucky that I have such a laid back attitude toward sex.... I really enjoy it.”

How does your family feel about what you do? They would love for me to do something else but they are supportive in that I am an I adult, I went into it mindfully. They are proud that I made it so far.

They know I am smart and capable but they would rather I didn't have sex for a living. No dad wants to know that his friends might be watching his daughter have sex.”

I asked her to finish this sentence. Someone points to you and says that's Chanel Preston she's ___________. “A porn star” she replied.

Okay, with just a few minutes left, I gave her the quicky questions.

Favorite food - Japanese, anything Japanese

Favorite movie - Closer with Natalie Portman

Favorite sport - I don't play sports. Pilates sometimes

Any pets- two cats. Princess Dior and Julien.

Finally, I asked, how do you feel about the AEE and the AVN? “ I get worn out, but I enjoy meeting my fans and talking to the media.” I thoroughly enjoyed talking to Chanel Preston.
