Naked Truth: So how are you?
Nikki Benz: I’m good, I’m actually in West Virginia on a feature dance gig right now. I feature dance at least once a month. I used to dance a lot more but now I have to create more time for Teravision and filming my movies.
NT: How long have you been with Teravision?
Nikki: I joined in August of ‘05, so it’s been almost a year
NT: How many movies have you done for them?
Nikki: I’ve done four and the first one is being released next week called Test Drive. I’ve done other scenes for them and I don’t know what they’re gonna do with those scenes - if they’re gonna put them in a movie or use them as web content - but so far I’ve done 2 movies that are mine, Test Drive and my second movie will be called Sexposé Nikki Benz.
NT: What’s the plot of Sexposé Nikki Benz?
Nikki: I think it’s going to be a great movie because there is no plot. It’s just 5 scenes of me having sex with different people in different positions and different scenarios. There’s a girl/girl scene and boy/girl scene and an anal scene, so it’s all me.
NT: Sounds great.
Nikki: I get emails from fans saying that me being in 3 scenes or 2 scenes in a movie isn’t enough, they want to see more. So they’re kinda getting what they were asking for.
NT: And how many scenes do you have in Test Drive?
Nikki: Three scenes. I do my first ever anal, which I was extremely nervous about.
NT: First on screen or first ever?
Nikki: First on screen. I don’t do a lot of anal in my personal life, so that was a little nerve-wracking because it was with Tony T and he is kinda large to do an anal scene with. [laughs] But I made it work!
NT: What’s working with her like?
Nikki: It’s great. I love working with Tera and she’s my friend. When I first met her, I was really intimidated by her and now that I know her better, I love doing scenes with her and we’re friends so it’s very easy to work with her.
NT: Would you say that your turn ons and sex life have changed since getting into adult?
Nikki: Yes. I’m gonna be totally honest, a lot girls are too afraid to say it, but I don’t care. After getting into adult movies, when I have sex in my personal life I prepare like I would before a scene. I’ll go take a shower, do a douche. I want to make sure I’m squeaky clean. I just feel like I’m about to do a scene in my personal life, so I do the same procedures I would prior to doing a scene. Whereas before I started doing movies, it was more spontaneous. Now I’m more aware.
NT: Most girls say nothing’s changed.
Nikki: The thing is, I’ll talk to girls and they say the same thing, but they never want to admit that when they do interviews. I’m like, “well, it’s the truth.” You prepare more before sex. At least I find I do and the girls I spoke with do the same.
NT: Do you have a significant other right now?
Nikki: Yeah, I’m in a relationship. Obviously, he’s not in the industry. I prefer it that way, actually. I don’t think I could date a performer.
NT: Why is that?
Nikki: You know, it’s so weird because this is what I do. I go to work and I have sex. But I don’t know if I could handle my guy doing that. You know what I mean? [laughs] But I am open. It’s an open relationship, meaning if he wants to go and have sex with a girl in our personal life, I’m fine with it. I just don’t want him doing it on screen.
NT: Does he have a problem with your job?
NT: That’s good to hear. So, what are you working on now?
Nikki: A big budget movie called Teradise Island. We filmed the whole movie in Hawaii. It’s actually two movies: Teradise Island and then there’ll be a sequel coming . The first one is probably gonna come out in June or July. Now that Appetite for Destruction came out, we’re releasing a movie once a month
NT: Do you have ambitions to things besides performing?
