Joslyn James is a serious hottie. Okay, I know that’s a Captain Obvious statement but there really is something special about the woman. When you see her on screen she has this commanding presence, as if she’s 7 feet tall. The look in her pretty eyes is a sign that she is truly enjoying herself. Her facial features are striking and are complimented by her very short hair. I guess all of these things are what make Joslyn one of the most popular female performers in the adult industry and they also serve as a testament to why she’s been able to last and stay relevant for almost 10 years. A couple of years back, Joslyn received even more attention than she usually gets when it was discovered that she was a mistress of international golf superstar, Tiger Woods. It was a harrowing experience but the lovely Ms. James handled it well and came out stronger on the other side. Mens Mag Daily had a chance to speak with Joslyn about her longevity in the business, her life before porn, and her feelings about the porn industry.
Joslyn James: I actually haven’t been working for the last couple of months because I broke my foot.
Mens Mag Daily: I’m sorry to hear that. Are you going back?
Joslyn James: Yup.
Mens Mag Daily: You’re a veteran now. You’ve been in the industry for like 9 years now right?
Joslyn James: That’s correct. It’s actually been almost ten years.
Mens Mag Daily: So how has that been possible for you? Most girls are in and out in six months.
Joslyn James: Well, a lot of people come into this business and they’re really young. They get caught up in a lot of stuff and forget who they are. They get into situations they can’t get out of and it gets to the point where the best way to get out of those situations is to just leave it completely behind. You have to know who you are and you have to have a head on your shoulders.
Mens Mag Daily: Let me get your opinion on this, do you think 18 is too young for a girl to get into the adult industry?
Joslyn James: Absolutely, absolutely, I think 21 is too young. A lot of girls say they’re going to use this to pay for school and what they don’t realize is that a lot of companies do background checks. A lot of companies have morality clauses in their contracts so if they find out you were in the adult industry in any way, shape, or form then it’s not going to work. They will not hire you because you were in the sex industry and it doesn’t matter if it was for one month, six months, one year, or ten years. These companies have their ways of finding out what they need to know. There were jobs I actually couldn’t get because I did an amateur night. I went to school for teaching and luckily I was able to use it. Now, of course, I couldn’t be a teacher. I couldn’t even be a Seahawk cheerleader if I wanted to because I’ve done porn. It’s frowned upon. I’m not saying it’s right but it’s how the world is. You have to see all the angles and when you’re 18 or 19 you think you’re invincible.
Mens Mag Daily: So if you’re going to be in the adult business you have to make it count.
Joslyn James: Absolutely, and you can’t get locked in that character you’ve created. Say for example a girl uses the name Sarah Fox. She gets so caught up in being Sarah Fox that at the end of the day she forgets she’s Jessica. She kind of loses Jessica because she’s so tied up in being Sarah Fox and she doesn’t know who she is anymore. I’ve seen that a lot and that’s sad.
Mens Mag Daily: So when you go home, you’re not Joslyn James.
Joslyn James: No, definitely not. I’m able to completely separate the two. They’re two totally different worlds and two totally different people. The only similarities are my body and my voice.
Mens Mag Daily: When you say girls can get wrapped up in the industry are you referring to the party lifestyle?
Joslyn James: Yeah, the partying, the wild lifestyle, and making poor choices. There are girls that are 18 or 19 going to these porn parties and they’re drinking and using drugs. By the time they’re 21 they’re going to be worn out. And they do everything so quickly that it’s like okay what do you have left to show your fans? You’ve done everything and you’re not even 25 years old yet. Time catches up with everybody and it can even affect them physically.
Mens Mag Daily: Is that another one of the reasons you’ve been popular for so long, because you kind of hold back and don’t give everything all at once?
Joslyn James: No, I don’t give everything. I give just enough to keep them wanting more. That’s really all you have to do. You don’t have to shoot everyday, that’s ridiculous. Your body parts aren’t going to work like they used to, you have to give them a break. You have to give yourself time to heal and that’s why you can tell when somebody is just going through the motions or they’re really enjoying the sex. I love stripping and doing appearances and getting to meet my fans but there are times when I’ll see girls getting wasted just to get on stage. I could understand having a couple of cocktails but you can’t take it too far. It’s when you have to do it in order to do your job that it becomes a problem. There’s something deeply wrong with that.
Mens Mag Daily: You have a college degree and you’re certainly pretty enough that you could have attempted a career in mainstream entertainment, why did you go the adult route?
Joslyn James: I did use my degree for a number of years and I did do some mainstream stuff. I was 27 when I first started doing adult so I had already had a very fulfilling life and done a lot of things. I was going through a transition in my life. I was getting divorced, moving to a different city, and I was really intrigued by the adult industry. I happened to be dating somebody that was in the business so one day it just kind of happened. It wasn’t like anything was really going to change except somebody was going to pay me to have sex with my boyfriend which I thought was really bizarre. It didn’t really change anything for me because I never hid anything from my folks so they already knew it was a possibility. When it happened I gave them the heads up. The obviously wouldn’t have chosen it for me but they told me to be careful and give it my all.
Mens Mag Daily: You obviously received more media exposure than your average pornstar when certain events took place with a certain athlete, what was that like?
Joslyn James: Everybody says all press is good press but that’s not really the case. Everybody has assumptions about a lot of things. Unless you’ve walked in somebody’s shoes you have no clue. It’s definitely a lot harder than people think. All I can say is that those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
Mens Mag Daily: I mean, a lot of people hated you.
Joslyn James: Absolutely, a lot of people did.
Mens Mag Daily: I know a lot of that hatred is coming over a computer and stuff but does it affect you when people you don’t know are telling you they hate you?
Joslyn James: It was a lot worse than people telling me they hated me, trust me. (Laughs) I take everything with a grain of salt and if that person has that much hate and negativity in their heart then I actually feel sorry for them. It’s crazy when people that don’t know you can have such strong feelings. It’s hard to understand why they’re bent out of shape when they’ve never met you. If it was somebody that knew me and loved me that’s a different story. With social media and everything today it gives people an opportunity to express their opinion on everything. Even with things like football, people get so volatile. People need hobbies. Maybe they need to have sex more often or have multiple orgasms more often because they would be much happier.
Mens Mag Daily: Did you benefit from the Tiger Woods situation at all?
Joslyn James: I benefitted in the way that I grew as a human being. It made me more compassionate towards others. I’m more understanding and realistic about the way the world is. It made me grow and it was hard but all lessons aren’t easy.
Mens Mag Daily: Are you still writing a book?
Joslyn James: I’m in the process of doing a few things but I am definitely not writing a tell all. Let’s nip that in the bud right now but I am working on a few book projects, yes.
Mens Mag Daily: So Joslyn in your ten years in the business, have you seen a lot of changes?
Joslyn James: Oh yeah, so much and not for the better either. It’s very disappointing and it’s not going to get any better so I just hope that I can continue to do what I do. Things are changing but I’m not going to change or buckle because of what’s going on around me. I know what I’m worth. The money is not even close to where it used to be. All I can say is that you get what you pay for. It’s all about quality over quantity. There are definitely a lot of things going on that I disagree with but that’s all I can really say about that.
Mens Mag Daily: Okay, so do you have anything coming up that we should be looking out for?
