Adult Fun 411: Congratulations on your contract with New Sensations. I love that company!
Amy Ried: Me too. Iíve been working with them for a long time, so this is the first time Iíve ever felt right about signing a contract with someone.
AF: So you are starting your own company too?
Amy: Yeah. I am. Itís called Riedemption Productions. Itís a lot of work but I am excited about it. Because this is what we all hope to get to at some point.
AF: This is great for you. Distribution is the hard part of starting your own company, and you have that made because of your deal with New Sensations. Did you shoot your first movie yet?
Amy: I have a couple movies in the can of my own. I havenít done anything under my contract yet. My first one will be called Riedality. Itís a reality-based movie and I am in every scene. I go on crazy adventures with my friends. I did one where I went sky-diving and one where I went and shot a shot gun. Just crazy events and then we incorporate a sex scene in it.
AF: Thatís so cool!
Amy: Itís very unscripted and raw. Iíve never done anything in my career that was able to let me come through. It was always like letís do the tease, letís do the scene. So this gives my fans a chance to know what I am all about and who I am. There is no you canít say that, you canít do this, walk this way. It was a lot of fun doing my shoots and being myself.
AF: So have you sky dived, dove? (laughs) before?
Amy: No! Not before this movie.
AF: That must have been great!
Amy: It was. But I thought I would have a heart attack because it was so ďletís do this todayĒ! I just bought a house and I have a lot of things going on all at the same time. Itís hard to figure out my schedule. It just so happens that Voodoo, the performer that I did it withÖ.
AF: I love Voodoo.
Amy: Heís really cool. He called me up and said itís perfect weather today, letís do it today. Itís a really far drive from the valley. So it was very spur of the moment. Heís telling me how to jump out of the plane on the way up. You are going crawl to the side here. And so of course he doesnít just do a normal sky dive for me, he has the pilot go up a thousand more feet. And then he says we are going to do this thing called a superman where we glide across the air. Iím trying to take it all in. But it was a lot of fun. I had a great time.
AF: I read that you are a daredevil. You really are. Didnít you have to learn how to load your parachute or anything?
Amy: No, no. I wasnít really nervous until I realized he was telling me how to jump out of the plane, on the way up. I was like, wow, I feel really unprepared right now.
AF: Did you do a tandem where he is attached to you?
Amy: I jumped twice. The first was a tandem to him and then I went by myself.
AF: You are brave!
Amy: Yeah. I have always been kind of like that. But my boyfriend was supposed to come with me. He said I want to jump out with you guys. But then we get there and he says, I will be at the bottom taping you from down here.
AF: That doesnít sound fair! Well maybe it was better that you didnít have time to thing about it too much. Because if it were me I would be thinking the worst; what if my parachute doesnít open, what if I open it too early or too late. You had no time to think about any of that.
Amy: Itís almost better if you try not to over stress about it. But I know with skydiving there are three ways to save your life. One is that the parachute will open automatically after a certain amount of time. I think you only get the option of opening it yourself so you have the whole experience. But the company itself is not going to let something happen to you. They are very thorough about how they check the parachutes. I saw them doing all that so I felt pretty secure.
AF: You are definitely a glass half full person, arenít you?
Amy: I try to be. There is just something that I would be missing out on. I think thatís more what it is. I donít ever want to be the party pooper.
AF: So after you landed did you have sex with Voodoo?
Amy: Well okay, this particular episode is in my next Riedality. For this one I did a scene with Alex Gonz and we were supposed to go sky diving and he was like Iím not going skydiving; you are crazy. So we did the indoor kind, thatís the I Fly thing. It is hard to get performers to do some of this stuff. And guys especially, they are not the daredevils you would think they are. The girls seem to be more willing.
AF: Isnít that funny?
Amy: Yeah, it is. I donít know why. Guys act all tough, but when you get them in these situations, good luck!
AF: So they can take their clothes off and fuck anyone, but jump out of a plane? NO fucking way! (laughs)
Amy: (Laughs) Heck no! I actually did the bungee jump scene at Six flags and itís called the Devilís Drop where they take you all the way up in the harness, itís like being in a giant sling. And then you pull the cord and they drop you. I think that was way more scary then sky-diving. Because they pull you up so slow, so you see yourself going higher and higher and higher and higher and you are like holy crap, I am going to freefall? Are you kidding me? It was so scary. And my co-star, Bill Bailey was saying the whole way- I hate you, I hate you. That was a spur of the moment thing too. I just picked him up and said you are doing a scene today. You might want to change what you are wearing because it is going to be hot where we are going. So he changed and then said, ďwhere are we going?Ē When I told him what we were doing, he said, ďWait, I donít want to do that!Ē
AF: He probably wanted extra hazardous duty pay.
Amy: I think he was okay with it after a while. He was glad he did it. But at first he was saying, ďWhy are you doing this to me?Ē
AF: So after you did the bungee jumping, how did you do the sex?
Amy: We just make it realistic. I say for doing that for me we are going to go back to my house and fuck. So we go do that! You can see the trailer for some of it on YouTube under Riedality. People will be surprised at how fast paced it is.
AF: Once it gets out about the adventurous things you are doing I think the daredevils will be asking you if they can be in it, and then you will find out who the real tough guys are.
Amy: Yeah. True.
AF: Tommy Gunn seems like the kind of guy that would do anything.
Amy: Yeah, he does. But sometimes it takes some of the entertainment value out of it too, if they are too willing. I want them to fight me a little bit.
AF: So you like MAKING them do it.
Amy: Yeah. Guys are babies.
AF: Well itís great because you say if you want to fuck me then you have to do this.
Amy: Yep. They have to do it, or itís not happening afterward, then they say, okayÖ So far everyone has been pretty cooperative.
AF: I think you should do race cars.
Amy: Yes. I definitely want to do that. I want to save one big thing for each movie. I think I am also going to go swimming with dolphins.
AF: Dolphins? No, no, no. Amy, I was waiting for you to say you were going to go swimming with sharks!
Amy: Oh gosh, I donít know about that one. I donít know who I could get to do it with me. I would do it as long as we had a trainer in the water with us. Swimming with sharks is on a whole nother level.
AF: Well you could be in a cage.
Amy: Yeah, but they can get through the cage.
AF: I wouldnít do that. Girl there is no way. Sorry.
Amy: I go surfing all the time. So I kind of am swimming with them.
AF: But you donít see them. You are amazing. But I am a chicken and I wouldnít swim with sharks even if I got to fuck you.
Amy: Thatís why I am saying Iíd like to put that together, but it would be hard to find someone to do it with. There is no guarantee.
AF: There is no guarantee you come out alive and get to finish the scene! (Laughs)
Amy: (Laughs) I guess I will stick with the dolphins.
AF: I canít wait to see the first episode, when is it coming out?
Amy: End of November, Beginning of December.
AF: So you were born in Germany?
Amy: Yes, but I wasnít there long. My parents were military so they got stationed in California when I was one.
AF: So you grew up and went to high school in California?
AF: Did you have those big boobs in high school?
AF: You must have been very popular.
Amy: Yeah, and I had bleached blonde hair all the way down to my ass. I had guys following me with video cameras in high school.
AF: See, you were trained early to be in front of the camera. You were meant to be a star. What kind of jobs did you have in high school?
Amy: The typical run of the mill jobs, plus my Dad owned an auto parts shop right down the street from school so I would go there and be his little cashier.
AF: I bet that helped bring in more business.
Amy: Yeah. (Laughs) I was a lifeguard for a while during the summer. That was a lot of fun.
AF: Well that must have been a good job because you obviously like to tan I was going to ask you how you get tan all over.
Amy: I havenít been tanning in months now. I am the whitest I have ever been right now. But I am half French Creole, so I am naturally olive. So I always have skin that is pretty dark. But if I go in the sun I am really dark. The other half is German.
AF: You are perfect.
Amy: Thank you.
AF: So how did you go from working at Dadís place to being a porn star?
Amy: After high school, I went to college and was working two part time jobs. So I would wake up at 5am, go to one job, then go to school, then go to the other job, then go home and do homework and get three hours of sleep every night.
AF: One of the people on Twitter wanted me to ask you if you really went to engineering school.
Amy: Yeah, I went to Cal-Tech Pomona.
AF: Did you like it?
Amy: I did. But I didnít like hearing people that graduated with the same major were working at Radio Shack. It was a lot of work and was hard for me to stay focused. So to work that hard and not have a good job to look forward too didnít seem okay to me. I would wake up so exhausted. I was killing myself. It was too much to handle on my own, plus I was in a bad relationship. So some guy randomly approached me and said you could do porn, you are really pretty, you would make a lot of money. I was clueless, I had never even thought about that. But I was so desperate and in need of getting out of the situation I was in and I wanted to change my life. So I didnít know if the change would be better or worse, but I wanted to do something. And porn was what came my way. I followed this guy out to LA. I never even knew that I had a good body. How stupid. But I was a tomboy. So I just remember I took off my clothes with ten guys standing around me and they were saying ďHoly Crap!Ē and I was booked for the whole month right there. I didnít tell my parents because I didnít want them to try and talk me out of it. The hardest part for me was that I didnít have much experience. I had only had two boyfriends, so I had only had sex with two people before I started in porn. My parents were really strict. I was a good girl.
AF: Well look at you now! How many movies have you done?
Amy: I donít know.
AF: Over a hundred?
Amy: Oh no. A lot of my movies are compilations. I think I have probably only done twenty-five boy/girl scenes.
AF: Thatís not many at all!
Amy: Thatís not many, considering I have been in the business since I was 19.
AF: So you have done average of five scenes a year?
Amy: Yeah, I know. I did five scenes last year, and five scenes the year before. How crazy is that!
AF: You have a really easy job; you know that?
Amy: (Laughs) But I do other things too, to pay for things.
AF: You are very well known for doing so few scenes.
Amy: I tried to be strategic about it. I donít consider myself to be famous, but if you want to get there, you canít flood the gates. You canít be everywhere. Itís just like how singers release albums. If someone releases an album every other month people would get bored of them.
AF: So if fans could see just one of your scenes which one should they watch?
Amy: Depends on if you like anal or not. I think my most entertaining scene that is out would be for Jules Jordan. I think itís an Erik Everhard movie. I think itís called Cum in my Ass, Not in my Mouth. Itís the only time I had ever done anal with two guys. It wasnít double anal, but with two separate guys. And everyone who has seen that scene, that is the only scene I always hear about.
AF: So you were performing with two guys. One did your ass, than the other one did your ass.
Amy: Yeah. It was Sasha & Erik Everhard.
AF: I hope you got paid a lot for that one!
Amy: I did! It wasnít bad either. It wasnít hard for me.
AF: Who is your favorite guy to work with?
Amy: You know what? I donít have a favorite because I donít like working with the same person all the time. I like different types of guys.
AF: Is there someone that you havenít worked with yet that you want to because you think they are hot?
Amy: I donít even know who the newest guys are, so I would have to say no. Well I guess if I have to say a favorite I would say my boyfriend (Justice Young) because he is a performer. But I actually donít like doing scenes with him because it just doesnít feel right. It feels like I am putting my personal life on video.
AF: I can understand that.
Amy: A lot of people do comment on the scenes I do with him, who donít know we are together, they say that we have chemistry, we are really into each other.
AF: Do you get jealous when he does scenes with other girls?
Amy: No, we both know how we feel about each other and are very secure people. Weíve been together for three years now, and in porn years thatís an eternity.
AF: What is the weirdest place you have ever had sex?
Amy: Probably in the middle of the desert, that was kind of weird and uncomfortable.
AF: And hot and sandy?
Amy: It wasnít hot because it was Fall and the sun was going down, but it was very sandy.
AF: Seems like you would find sand five days later.
Amy: Yeah, in all kinds of weird places.
AF: What is the most people you have had sex with at the same time?
Amy: It would have to be a big orgy thing I did when I was contracted to third degree. I don Ďt remember how many people, Iíll guess ten people, guys & girls.
AF: Is there anything sexual you wouldnít do?
Amy: Uh, yeah. I am sure there is. I am going through a list of things in my headÖ.
AF: Would you do a double vag or a double anal?
Amy: That seems like it would be painful. I could probably do a double anal because your ass opens up a lot more then your pussy. But double pussy, there is just nothing pleasant about.
AF: I wouldnít know about that, and Iím not planning on finding out. (laughs)
Amy: (Laughs) I donít think I will either.
AF: Do you have a message for your fans?
Amy: Keep watching because there is a lot of great stuff coming out and I am super excited about it.
AF: Thanks so much Amy. And I canít wait to see and do a review on your movie!
