Amber Ivy – Pornstar Interview
Amber got her start with Burning Angel a couple of years ago. This girl has a few tattoos but she is more known for her large sexual appetite, as I found out. Amber has an interesting story and was very open when she was talking to me. Special thanks to SeanDPS for letting me know that Amber wanted to chat!
Captain Jack: Tell me about Amber Ivy.
Amber Ivy: I’m from Cleveland, Ohio and I rep it as much as I can because it’s the home of rock ‘n roll and I love it. (laughs) I went to a Christian Catholic school so it was that whole Catholic schoolgirl thing. A little sheltered, at first, then I started breaking out of my shell, probably around pre-teen or early teen years. I started dying my hair, wearing eye liner, putting safety pins on my uniform and stuff I shouldn’t have been doing in the school that I was going to. (laughs) I was rolling with some heavy thick eyeliner and they would send me right to the bathroom and make me scrub it off before my first period class every single day. I didn’t have to wear the plaid skirt, it was more solid colors in a skort or a jumper. So it wasn’t too crazy but a lot of religion!
CJ: How old are you?
Amber: I’m 23.
CJ: How long have you been in the industry?
Amber: I think I’m going on my third year. I started in November of 2014 but my first year, I only shot 2 or 3 scenes. So I don’t really count that. (laughs)
CJ: When did you lose your virginity?
Amber: It started with me leaving the Catholic school which I finally convinced my parents to let me do in the 7thgrade. I thought that all the kids at public school were sexually active because everyone was talking about sex! I thought everyone had lost their virginity and were promiscuous! (laughs) So, I figured I had to fit in with my new peer group and I had to lose my virginity! Little did I know, everyone was just talking about it and not actually doing it. (laughs) I was AOL Instant Messenger and I found this guy that was 2 lockers down. I asked him to come over. He had his brother drop him off and pick him up and I just wanted to get it over with. It was really special. (laughs)
CJ: Did that open up the floodgates? Were you promiscuous after that?
Amber: I started dating and fucking girls for a while. I went from ‘ok, let’s get this over with’ to ‘I think I’m a lesbian!’ (laughs) Real quick!
CJ: Were you the aggressor with girls or did they pick you up?
Amber: We were best friends and we cared about each other on a deeper level and then sexual stuff started happening. And experimenting and then we ended up dating for a couple of years. I really thought I was gay for a really long time. I didn’t try guys again until I was probably 16 or 17. Then that was a whole ‘nother story! (laughs)
CJ: I love that about girls. If my guy friends would hit on my, there’s gonna be a fight. But with girls? Hey, whatever!
Amber: Oh yeah. I fucked all my girlfriends. (laughs) To this day still! (laughs) We’re not really friends until we have lesbian sex.
CJ: How many guys and girls did you sleep with before porn?
Amber: Not a whole lot. I wasn’t a huge fan of random sex but I would definitely talk to a person and try and date them for a while. Sometimes it wouldn’t necessarily work out. I was 17 going after guys that were 30. (laughs) That didn’t always work out but more than a dozen but probably less than 50. (laughs)
CJ: How and why did you decide to get into the adult industry?
Amber: At first, it was a revenge thing to a guy I had been seeing for around 2 years. But I dated him when I first turned 18. We were already having groupsex, threesomes, foursomes, orgies….He was the one who I started opening up to and doing different things sexually. I knew I was into girls and I didn’t really want to give girls up so he said, ‘How about we just have friends over?’ So we had that then we broke up. So I decided to do porn.
CJ: With this guy, you had two girls and a guy but was there any scenarios with two guys and you?
Amber: Well, there was an orgy but there wasn’t two guys at once. Maybe a blowjob while getting fucked but it wasn’t double penetration or anything like that.
CJ: Does your family know what you do?
Amber: Yes. They’re really supportive of me. They found out really quickly. I’ve always been the person to do my own thing and everyone in my life knows I write my own rules. I don’t think it was very farfetched for me to do porn. ‘Oh, great. She’s doing porn. What’s next?’ (laughs)
CJ: How did you come up with your stage name?
Amber: When I was born, there was a pornstar named Amber Lynn who was feature dancing not very far from the hospital. It was a running joke because my mom’s middle name is Lynn. Other family members said they should call me ‘Amber Lynn’ because of her. They didn’t do that but I chose that name as my first name in porn. I grew up hearing that story a lot. The Ivy part comes from my favorite band, The Cramps, after Poison Ivy, the lead guitarist for it.
CJ: So what was your first scene like? You were sexually experienced but it’s different with all these people around. Were you intimidated? Nervous? Turned on?
Amber: I was really nervous. My first scene was for Burning Angel called The Grinch Who Gaped Christmas. Joanna Angel was spray painted green from head to toe. Coming to LA was a magical thing and then going to a set where there were directors and people putting things together so it looked like Christmas. I loved it immediately. ‘If this is what porn is, sign me up!’ (laughs) I wanted to get spray painted green. It was really fun. I did my first scene with Xander Corvus. I was really nervous but it went really well. It even got nominated!
CJ: How long did it take you to master the little tricks that girls have to do like arching, opening up and all that stuff?
Amber: I think a while because I only shot for Burning Angel for about a year, then I shot for Peter North. My first year, I have about 5 scenes total. I don’t think I learned a lot in those 5 scenes until the past year when I moved to LA and got an agent and started doing it for real. It’s amazing and I love it. I think the last year is when I learned all the camera tricks.
CJ: What’s your favorite position?
Amber: I like being on top but I think on film, I like a sideways missionary where I’m on my elbow propped up. I think that looks the best. But in real life, I like being on top or in missionary with my legs up.
CJ: With your legs up? Are you flexible? Can you put your ankles behind your head?
Amber: Yeah I can do that. But I just like them up, nothing crazy, They don’t have to be crazy pretzel folded. (laughs)
CJ: Have you ever been in an inappropriate sexual relationship?
Amber: Not at all! I almost wish I did for a good story! Most of my teachers were female growing up. I didn’t really have an attraction for older men until I was 17 or 18. But then they weren’t even that old, they were like 30. They were old enough for a considerable amount of age difference but not like ‘I want to fuck my friend’s dad or anything like that.’
CJ: So you like older men, is 30 the oldest guy you’ve been with off-camera?
Amber: I think that has been it. There are some older than that in the industry, however.
CJ: What do you like sexually? What gets Amber wet?
Amber: I like being in charge. (laughs) I’m more dominant than submissive in bed, I’ve always been that way, even before porn. Sex should just flow but you can steer it in certain directions. I don’t necessarily like a guy to be completely submissive. I like having subs and I’ve done a little bit of pro dom work but I prefer having sex with men that are not completely submissive but are open to it. I’d rather do the tying up than being tied up.
CJ: In your personal life, have you ever used a strap-on on a guy?
Amber: Oh yeah. Oh yeah. (laughs) Of course, yes. (laughs) I like pushing people’s limits and I like pushing my own. Every scene that I do, I’m not very competitive against other people but I’m competitive with myself. If I did something once, like a boy/girl, I have to make it crazier next time. I always feel like I’m trying to push my own limits. I think I like doing that to other people; to see how far they’ll go, when they’ll say ‘no’. And, of course, you’re not going to violate anybody, you’re going to make sure everything is ok along the way. I just want to see how far. (laughs)
CJ: How often do you masturbate?
Amber: A lot. (laughs) I do cam a lot so I get paid to masturbate, which is cool. Sometimes if I’m super busy, I’m not the type of person to rub one out to get the stress out. But if I have some free time, I’m ‘Alright, let’s go!’ (laughs)
CJ: Favorite method?
Amber: Hitachi. (laughs)
CJ: Did you watch porn before you got into the industry?
Amber: A little. That’s how I got into porn. I met Joanna Angel when she was feature dancing and I was working at strip club. I asked her, ‘How do I do porn?’ And she told me I could work for her. I didn’t know anything about Burning Angel or porn or anything. We would have monthly feature dancers in our club. Just to see what they were all about, I would look them up and watch their porn before they performed at the club. But that was the full extent of porn that I knew about.
CJ: When a guy pops, where do you prefer it?
Amber: I like swallowing it. I like it in my mouth. It feels like such a reward and a treat. It feels like the ultimate. I have to swallow it! (laughs) I have to taste it! (laughs)
CJ: Will you do creampies on camera?
Amber: I do creampies. Right now, I’m not on birth control. The hormones mess with my system so I have to properly plan and if I do that, I love creampies. But if it’s an unexpected one, I’m ‘Ummmmm, no thank you!’ (laughs)
CJ: You’ve already done anal. Is that something you enjoy in your personal life?
Amber: Yes. My second scene was an anal scene. I did do anal before porn but I only did it with one person because he made me comfortable enough to do that. They really didn’t know the proper ways to clean and prep for anal. I like anal on film and in my personal life. Most of my scenes have been anal.
CJ: I saw you Tweet the other day that your holes are open for business. Would you consider a double anal or a double vag?
Amber: Oh God, I don’t think my anatomy can handle it. I’ve seen girls who do it. My third scene was a DP. So I’ve done that and I have a gangbang which is going to be the last scene shot at the Armory for Kink. I’m really excited about it and they let me take creative control of what I wanted to do. We’re going to be doing a Twin Peaks themed one and, if everything goes through, I’ll probably be getting a tattoo during my scene. But I don’t think that was your question. (laughs)
CJ: Do you have any fantasies you would like to live out on camera?
Amber: One of my biggest fantasy’s even before porn is that I want to get fucked with a gun. Probably a pistol, not like a shotgun or anything. It doesn’t have to be loaded but it has to be a real gun. I told Kink when they booked me. I’m not sure if they’re allowed to do that but I’m hoping there will be one there. There’s a part in Twin Peaks where I’ll be playing Audrey Horn and she goes to work at a brothel at One Eyed Jacks. We’re going to explore that. She gets kidnapped, tied up, all that and I want it to be as real as possible. So I’m hoping there’s gunplay involved. (laughs)
CJ: What do you look for in a guy off camera?
Amber: I think I’m a lot more picky now that I started doing porn. (laughs) He can’t be super clingy. I like guys who are artistic and not your typical jabroni douchebag. (laughs) I like creative people. I’ve had sex with all races and nationalities and I’m not picky about that. He just has to be a decent person.
CJ: What do you look for in a girl off-camera?
Amber: I wish I had more girls off-camera! (laughs) Pretty much the same thing. I like open minded people because I am one myself. And I am not jealous. At all. I used to be but it’s something I’ve grown out of. I think it’s something that’s trained that you should be jealous but once you let that go and don’t have any reservations about sharing partners or anything like that, it’s really freeing.
CJ: What are you like off-camera? What are your hobbies and interests?
Amber: Art and photography are definitely huge hobbies of mine. I started college at a really young age and got my degree in art. I’m trying to utilize it this year and branch out. Last year was moving to LA and figuring out what I’m doing. This year, I think is the year that I really buckle down and creating more since I’ve gotten away from that quite a bit. Anything I can put my hands on! Crafting…I know how to do a million things! I can knit, I can sew, I played the flute for 9 years. I dabble in a lot of stuff.
CJ: What kind of music do you like?
Amber: Rock ‘n Roll. The Cramps are my favorite band. A close second would be Jack Off Jill. I like rock; I like riot girl music, anything that’s a little gritty and not completely put together because that’s what rock is. It’s not well organized.
CJ: Do you have any favorite movies?
Amber: I’m the worst with movies because I can’t really sit. I have ADD and can’t sit and watch a full movie. I can watch TV shows though.
CJ: What’s your favorite TV shows?
Amber: Twin Peaks, Pushing Daisies, Fringe. I know there’s more but that’s a couple.
CJ: What’s your favorite food?
Amber: I like Indian food.
CJ: What’s the kinkiest thing you’ve ever done?
Amber: Oh gosh. I feel like I just need to have an answer because I get asked this quite a bit. I feel I need to do something crazy. In domming, I did this session with this guy that wanted to do sissy training. So we dressed him up and tied him up and put a shock collar around his dick. It was me and a friend of mine, we were both domming him. It was in her house and we both went downstairs to do our hair and nails and we would press the button every couple of minutes. He was completely tied down and it was on the highest setting. We kept shocking him! (laughs) And he loved it! (laughs)
CJ: And how can the fans get ahold of you?
