Webcamming is the new stripping in terms of the road to being a pornstar. Ask many girls today how they got into the industry and it wasn’t because they writhed on a pole in a strip club but they sat in the comfort of their own homes putting on shows for men, a virtual strip club if you will. It’s actually not a bad deal as they have no commute and no boss. Some cam girls become very successful and Nina Elle is one of them becoming such a hot commodity she had to take her career to the next level and make the jump to porn. Now well into her porn career the blonde bombshell is making an even larger audience of men salivate. Mens Mag Daily caught up with Nina Elle courtesy of Erika at The Rub PR to discuss her webcamming career, why she decided to take the plunge and get into porn, and why guys probably shouldn’t approach her in the street.
Nina Elle: I’m actually an army brat, I was born in Germany. I grew up in Georgia, Texas, and Northern California.
Mens Mag Daily: Did you have a favorite out of all of the places you lived?
Nina Elle: There are so many great places to live but I think my favorite is Los Angeles where I’m currently living.
Mens Mag Daily: How did you find your way into the adult business?
Nina Elle: It started out with webcamming. I’m a dental hygienist so I was just working in the dental field and to make some extra money I started camming. I got a great reaction and people were asking me when I was going to shoot porn. Finally, about two years ago I decided to give it a try so I started shooting girl/ girl scenes. I was strictly a girl/girl performer for eight months.
Mens Mag Daily: Who was it that introduced you to webcamming?
Nina Elle: You know it’s funny. I was watching Oprah and Lisa Ling and they were talking to a couple who were supporting a family by webcamming. I never knew anything about it before I saw that. I watched it and I thought it was cool that I could sit in my own house, play with myself which I do anyway, and get paid for it. You set your own hours, it’s great. I did some research on the different sites and I picked one but I didn’t really like it that much. Traffic wasn’t very good. I found a good one after that and I still do it on and off. I do free shows for members of my website. I don’t have as much time as I did to do it.
Mens Mag Daily: Did you bring a lot of fans with you from your camming days?
Nina Elle: I did, I have tons of fans that have been with me from the beginning and who’ve seen me evolve. I’ve even gotten recognized in public a few times, mostly in the airport. I also got recognized in Vegas a few times, that was kind of freaky. It’s always good to see a response from your fans but at the same time it’s weird because you don’t realize how much of a public figure you are.
Mens Mag Daily: Is there a big difference between camming and actually filming scenes?
Nina Elle: Oh definitely, it’s a whole different world. When you’re webcamming you’re by yourself in the comfort of your own home. When you’re shooting porn it’s a whole other ballgame because you’re physically working with other people. There’s a director there and the shoot can take up to 12 hours. It’s a lot more fun though because you get to go out and meet people.
Mens Mag Daily: What’s the biggest tip you ever got while webcamming?
Nina Elle: The biggest tip was about $1000 dollars. It was between two fans. It was one fan who would come in randomly and always tip me and I guess that day he was feeling really generous and he tipped me $600. Later on in the day somebody else came and tipped me $400 so it was a good day.
Mens Mag Daily: When guys do that do you ever wonder if these guys actually have money or they’re just spending money they don’t really have?
Nina Elle: It depends, it’s a mixed crowd. I can tell that some have money because they come back and they keep tipping. But then you have some guys that beg to see your tits for free. It’s a mixed bag.
Mens Mag Daily: Do you feel like you’re actually interacting with these guys?
Nina Elle: Definitely, it’s very interactive. I enjoy that aspect. I answer their questions and I try to give them the show they want to see.
Mens Mag Daily: Did being popular as a camgirl help you when you decided to do scenes?
Nina Elle: Yeah, it helped so much. First of all, I brought a lot of my fans so I had a lot of confidence. As far as the scenes you kind of have a routine so you don’t have as much of a shyness. I think it helped open me up and bring me out of my shell. I was really nervous the first time though but I think it was because it was a girl/girl scene and I had never been with a girl before. She was really nice and cool so I started relaxing. It was so out of my nature though and there was the camera and the lights so it was an odd feeling but I made it through. It helped that the crew was great and the girl was great. I don’t mind working with girls but in my everyday life I don’t really date women. If I’m out with friends and we’re drinking we might make out or fondle each other but I don’t have relationships with women or anything.
Mens Mag Daily: Have you had any negative experiences in the adult industry?
Nina Elle: I had one bad experience. I was supposed to shoot content with a guy and he showed up on set with a test that was three or four days expired. I told him I couldn’t shoot with him and he got so mad and started yelling at me. The guy who was shooting kind of calmed him down but it was pretty scary. That’s the only negative experience I’ve had. Also, I was married and porn really affected my marriage. I lost my husband along the way which is a negative thing. It was just too much for him. We started doing the camming together. He didn’t feel comfortable with it anymore and we were always arguing. He completely stepped out of it. I fought hard to try and maintain the relationship but it just ended up being too much. We’re not divorced but we’re separated and I think it’s better that way so I can focus on my career. If I do get into another serious relationship it will probably be with somebody in the industry because they’ll understand a little bit better.
Mens Mag Daily: Was it easy for you to separate the porn from the relationship?
Nina Elle: Yeah, it was actually. I mean sometimes you shoot with a person you find attractive and then it may be hard to separate it but it didn’t happen that often. I would shoot, say thank you, and actually have a very normal life.
Mens Mag Daily: So you generally don’t find your co-stars attractive?
Nina Elle: (Laughs) Well, I don’t know, I’d say about twenty percent of the time I find them attractive. I have a very particular taste. I like Hispanic guys and black guys and I don’t shoot interracial. Maybe down the line I will.
Mens Mag Daily: Do you get approached a lot by guys?
Nina Elle: I do and it’s so bad. I went to the phone company because I wanted to change something with my plan and I told the guy at the phone company that. He told me they weren’t supposed to do that but if I did him a favor he would do me a favor. It’s pretty hard dealing with that on a daily basis. I don’t really like getting spontaneously hit on. A guy can talk to me but it shouldn’t be too sexual or about a hook-up. I wouldn’t say they stand no chance.
Mens Mag Daily: Okay Nina, give us the rundown of everything you have coming up.
Nina Elle: I just launched my site which I’m so excited about. I’m really busy but I still make time to shoot as much content as I can and everything you see on there is something that I thought up. That site is www.ninaellexxx.com. I’ll be doing weekly live cam shows for the members, those will be free. My Twitter is https://twitter.com/NinaElleXXX. I always update my fans there and let them know what’s going on in my career and what scenes I have coming up. My fans can interact with me and ask me questions. I put my selfies and let them know what’s going on.
