From a shy girl living in the suburbs of New York, to porn video shop clerk, to peep show girl who was more than happy to go the extra mile for her clients, to Nevada brothel girl, to famous porn star. Sarah Vandella has run the gamut of the adult industry. She’s done it all and seen it all and it’s all been on her terms. Speaking with Sarah it’s no surprise she was able to navigate her way through such a cutthroat business, a business that has been known to chew up and spit out young girls looking for a chance at stardom. She’s bubbly and sweet but well spoken. You get the feeling she’s the one calling the shots when she’s doing a scene and those are likely the perks of being a seasoned veteran. Mens Mag Daily was able to catch up with the sexy blonde to discuss everything from her upbringing, how she got into the business, and why she doesn’t mind being called a MILF.
Mens Mag Daily: So Sarah, you’re originally from New York, right?
Sarah Vandella: I am, I grew up in Suffolk County in the Dix Hills and Commack area. But from ages 7 to 14 we actually lived in California. We moved back to New York and I graduated high school in Commack and everything.
Mens Mag Daily: How did you end up getting into the business?
Sarah Vandella: I was always very shy and not very outwardly sexual but I was always reading Playboy and stuff so you could say I was sexually curious, I just didn’t act on it until I was in my early twenties. I graduated high school and I did the college thing for a little while but it was so boring for me and I just wanted to work and make money. I was a retail manager, I did insurance work but I wanted more. I always wanted to know what it would feel like to dance and take my clothes off for men. I wanted to know what it would be like to turn someone on and possibly have sex with them. I went to a peep show club on Long Island and I don’t know how it was an “extra” club if you know what I’m saying but I had a feeling and I think that was kind of the turning point for me. I surprised myself and it turned me on. I wanted to make it legit so I worked at a couple of brothels in Nevada. I met Carmella Bing and she invited me to a shoot and I was curious about it anyway. Being on set was like the perfect exposure for me at the time, it was just great timing. I watched her do three scenes for Naughty America and it was just amazing and I made a deal right then and there with the director to do my first scene. It happened two weeks later which was March of 2007 and I loved it. I still love it. I love my fans and the conventions, I just love it all. I was lucky enough to have a contract with Zero Tolerance. That was from 2010 to 2011. I was actually called Sarah Sloane under them and I was totally okay with that because I wanted them to be able to brand me if they wanted to. When I went back to freelancing I went back to Vandella. It confused people for a hot minute but it all worked out.
Mens Mag Daily: You seem to really like the business.
Sarah Vandella: I absolutely love it and I do love to act but I always say I got into porn to suck dick not to act. I think it’s so much fun when I get to play a character but if I get to suck a big cock at the end then it’s great. I also just did a cover for High Society. It’s a lot of fun and I couldn’t see myself doing anything else. I have at least another ten years left in me. (Laughs)
Mens Mag Daily: Seven years is a long time, any bad experiences in the business?
Sarah Vandella: You know with everything in life there’s always a bad experience. In the beginning you’re finding out what works for you and what you’re comfortable with. I can honestly say I’ve never done anything I didn’t want to do. I’m proud of everything I’ve ever done and I was lucky enough to always have awesome agents. I can say I’m not comfortable with something and I’ve been very lucky to have some great opportunities come my way.
Mens Mag Daily: Give me an example of a scene you would say no to.
Sarah Vandella: I mean as of right now I wouldn’t be feeling any anal gangbangs. Maybe in a couple of years but not now. I love pushing my thresholds and I love to grow as a performer but I’m not ready for it now. I am not ruling it out though, just not this year.
Mens Mag Daily: Do you enjoy working with girls as well?
Sarah Vandella: I love women and I haven’t done a hot lesbo scene in a while but I’ve worked with some awesome women over the years like Raylene, Phoenix Marie, a lot of girls that are really authentic performers. You can tell that it’s real. That’s what turns me on because I love to watch porn too.
Mens Mag Daily: So you have another ten years left in you?
Sarah Vandella: Yeah, I think so. I just turned 30.
Mens Mag Daily: Why do they call you a MILF if you’re 30?
Sarah Vandella: They use MILF very loosely now. It doesn’t bother me much but it is funny. I did a scene for a movie called Cougars and Kittens the other day and I was the cougar. This hot little 22 year old was the kitten. The MILF thing just keeps getting bigger and bigger. MILF’s are hot; I don’t see that fading away any time soon.
Mens Mag Daily: If you stay in for ten more years eventually you actually will be a MILF or at least close to it.
Sarah Vandella: Yes, full blown MILF.
Mens Mag Daily: You obviously have long term plans in the business. Do you plan to stay in front of the camera or do other things?
Sarah Vandella: I do my own stuff for my website but if I can direct that would be fantastic. I would never turn down that opportunity. I would love to learn more stuff and see what happens.
Mens Mag Daily: Be honest, do you prefer California or New York?
Sarah Vandella: New York is my first answer because it’s in my blood but I do love it here. It took me like three years to even say that I liked it here. I just let myself be okay with the idea that I’d probably be living here for the next ten years and I do love it.
Mens Mag Daily: Are you Italian by any chance? I’m just asking because Vandella has an Italian feel to it.
Sarah Vandella: I’m actually adopted and my birth mother is rumored to be Italian-American. I was adopted as a baby; I was like a week old. My parents are reformed Jews. So I grew up in the very hippie, listening to James Taylor environment. My parents are very supportive of what I’ve chosen to do. Before I did the peep show business I worked at a porn shop as a clerk because I wanted to be comfortable in that environment and when I told them they really were supportive. I really took it to the next live.
Mens Mag Daily: It’s crazy that those peep show type places are all around.
Sarah Vandella: I had no idea for a fact that it was okay for me to get on my knees and suck a guy’s dick right there. It was something I wanted to do. I was so nervous but it was such a rush. I taught myself how to suck dick at that place.
Mens Mag Daily: I wonder if the first guy knows he was the first guy.
Sarah Vandella: He probably does because my high heel was clicking on the floor from me shaking. I was so sexually shy. But it was all very on my terms which makes it great. I don’t regret anything and I’m so lucky because I’ve never gotten into a bad situation at all. It was mostly sweet guys and I was just happy to take care of them.
Mens Mag Daily: What’s your personal sex life like?
Sarah Vandella: I don’t have a lot of personal sex which is pathetic. I do have a boyfriend and I use that term loosely. We’ve been together for about two year and we both travel a lot and have similar schedules so we’re very independent. It works for us, we’re very compatible. He likes to hear about the stuff I do especially stuff I do with black guys. It gets him very excited. I am very faithful to him. I have a lot of opportunities to not be and it’s hard but I’m a good girl.
Mens Mag Daily: Okay Sarah, so give us the rundown on everything you have coming up. Plug away.
Sarah Vandella: I always have new content on my website which is www.sarahvandella.com. I have two scenes for Devil’s Films. You can go to their website and check those out. I have two scenes for Hustler coming out. I have magazine stuff like High Society, Excitement, and of course, you guys, Mens Mag Daily.
