MARIE MADISON — “I’m fucking the way I really enjoy fucking, and I think it shows.”

WHACK! First of all, Maddy, we’d like to think that all our readers are well-rounded individuals who know all about you, but that might not be true. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself so we can all start on the same page?

MARIE MADISON I’m 37 years old, and I’ve been working in entertainment for 11 years. I own Maddy G Productions, a studio that specializes in films and television shows for adults. I’m also a partner at GMD Films, and we produce “mainstream” programming. I’ve never worked as an adult performer for anyone but myself and my company, but I’ve acted in a number of “mainstream” projects for a variety of studios.

W! You’ve been in the business for a long time, but have spent most of that time marching to the beat of your own drummer. How would you describe that beat?

MM It’s something between a slam dance and a waltz. You have to really focus if you want to dance to it.

W! You’ve said in interviews that you think Porn Valley has gotten it all wrong, that film should be used as a medium for sexual expression. What do you do in your career that sets you apart from mainstream, San Fernando Valley porn?

MM It probably sounds like a cliché, but I keep it real. Specifically, I don’t perform on film anything that I wouldn’t do for fun [in] my own bedroom. I’ve read comments and reviews that have said, “You can’t pay a porn girl to do that.” But to me, the only difference is that I’m fucking the way I really enjoy fucking, and I think it shows in a way that’s visceral. You feel it more than see it, I guess.

W! In what ways do you use film as a form of sexual expression, and how are they different from the ways in which most performers and producers us the medium?

MM Again, I only film real sex. I don’t set up positions to get 5 minutes of this, then 10 minutes of that, and I’ve never once dictated to anyone working with me what to do in the sex scene. Hook people up who are hot for one another and you’ll feel the heat without having to even turn the lights on. So, the sex you see in a Maddy G movie isn’t my interpretation of what I think these two people might look like having sex. That’s where “Porn Valley” gets it wrong so often. What you see on the film is the director’s idea of what sex looks like. I’ll show you what it actually looks like when two people collide. It’s not always clean, it’s not always pretty, and it almost never fits into a formula or a time slot. I hear horror stories from girls in the Valley who say it can take 6 hours to film a sex scene. It takes me 30 minutes, and I don’t think I’m doing it wrong. For some of the models that work for me, it takes them longer to get here than it does to actually work here.
So, the medium of film gives me the ability to capture human sexuality in its rawest form. It’s also a great tool for telling stories, which is the other reason I love to work in film. I’m very interested in why people connect and the motivations that brought these people together, and film is a great way to tell those stories.

W! You take pride in having a very real appearance — not tons of makeup, but rather stretch marks and imperfections and all. How has this helped you win over your loyal fans? What is about your commitment to reality that makes you so sexy?

MM It’s because women are sexy. Let’s face it, if you are a fan of erotic entertainment, you probably are a fan of women, too. And we come in all sizes, shapes, colors, and ages. The most interesting among us have lived through some shit, and have earned the confidence to share the most intimate parts of our lives with you. That’s a pretty addictive combination.
The only requirement there is to work for me is the desire to explore your own sexuality. I’ll shoot anyone that really wants to, and because of that, my movies offer a variety of women that’s hard to find anywhere else — and it often catches people by surprise. Porn Valley has a habit of offering women who fit into a specific look or category. The formula is something like this: 6 girls per movie, 120 minutes, and the girl of the week on the box. It’s like fast food- style porn and the fans of this kind of entertainment have noticed.
Instead, I chose to slow down a bit and get to really know these women. Give them a safe place to play, to explore and find out what really gets them off. People thought I was crazy when I made an entire movie about Molly Adams, a 50-year-old divorcee, who looks more like a Lunch Lady than a MILF Fantasy. Those same people were surprised at how they got drawn into the movie, because they watched this real woman experience some things and discover some things about herself, and that’s sexy. But it’s the kind of movie that Porn Valley probably wouldn’t want to take the chance on putting out. I would bet most casting directors in Porn Valley would have laughed and joked when she left their office, and no one would have ever known about the kinds of filthy things that were bouncing around Molly’s head.

W! You and LA, it seems, offer very different ideas about the aesthetics and general sexiness of sex. Do you try to source your talent from Porn Valley, or since you work near the East Coast, do you get talent from all over?

MM I honestly wish I could do what I do in Porn Valley, because access to talent is a real issue for me. I’m blessed with a landscape here that I couldn’t afford to duplicate in LA. Unfortunately, there’s a ton of exceptional talent on the West Coast that I’m not able to work with, because of the logistics and costs of bringing them across the country. The other edge of the sword of being so independent is that I don’t have the resources of the Big Studios. So, we run Maddy G more like a rock and roll band — it’s just a bunch of us all with the same goal of making good movies and getting them seen. As far as casting, I try and get the most interesting women I can afford, no matter where they live.

W! So, tell us about your company, Maddy G. What does it offer that other porn companies don’t, and who should check it out?

MM We offer something different. We’ll tackle niches and fetishes that the big studios are afraid of. We don’t fake anything or try and trick anyone. And you just never know what we’re going to surprise you with next.

W! You’ve said in interviews that you have been highly sexual from a very early age, and now you do a lot of fetish-oriented work. What do you think it is about fetish work that gets you going? Why do people like to watch it?

MM Well, it started for me by filming my own fetishes like smoking and rough sex. I think my “Smoke Junkies” series struck a chord with smoking fetishists, because they recognized me as one of their own. We nailed the fetish, because I have the fetish. Then, as the requests started coming in, it became more of a curiosity. I didn’t know anything about the giantess fetish, until someone asked me to do one, and I had to do the research. Now, I find it fascinating, and I’m still learning about it. A big part of the enjoyment of making these films is learning about the fetish, and then getting the feedback as to how close to the mark we ended up. I think I’ve become known in the fetish genre because I’ll tackle these lesser-known fetishes that the mainstream porn world just won’t explore.

W! Tell us about your forays into doll porn. You’ve said it’s a huge seller — how does it work and why is it so awesome?

MM Oh, the “Regarding Jenny” phenomenon! It started as a script from David Hurley, which we all understood was going to be a doll fetish film (a fetish none of us except David knew anything about). It also called for the biggest budget we’ve ever worked with. So, we spent 6 months in research, talking to doll owners, reading blogs, joining web communities, and talking to the folks at RealDoll about our ideas. Our research showed that the Doll Fetish Community is huge, and it’s global, with close to a million “admitted” fetishists around the world. And we made the investment in making the movie, which included close to $12K in just dolls, knowing that if we got it right, we knew that the movie would do very well.
Well, we released the movie in July of 2009 with a big advertising push to the Doll Community, including a cover story in the largest Doll Glamour Magazine, CoverDoll.com (and I’m not kidding). And to our surprise, hardly anyone bought the movie. We sold maybe 50 or 60 copies of it. Then, the reviews started hitting the blogosphere in the Doll Community, and it was ugly. We make jokes about it now, but the people we made this movie specifically for were calling us “Doll Rapists” and I panicked.
The company spent a fortune on the movie, and it was pretty clear the only way we would ever make our money back was to release the movie to VOD and hopefully enough people in mainstream porn would be curious enough to allow us to earn it back one minute at a time. So, that’s what we did. We put up a trailer on YouTube and released the movie to VOD, and that’s when it blew up.
The mainstream porn audience didn’t see it as a doll fetish movie — they saw it as a comedy, and many of them saw it as a parody of the porn industry. Everyone agreed you couldn’t jerk off to it, but you can’t look away from it either, and there are parts where you’ll hurt yourself from laughing so hard.
So, the Youtube video started getting a gazillion views (before they pulled it for content) and the VOD numbers exploded — and all of a sudden, the movie’s website, RegardingJenny.com, is getting more visitors than The Play Place site.
I think it’s awesome, because it’s fun, it’s funny, and it’s a new take on the RealDoll. They have been around for a decade now, so a lot of people have heard of them, but they’ve never seen them in action, so to speak.

W! Tell us about Marie’s Play Place. It’s been billed as the world’s first adult sitcom and been nominated for tons of awards… what should our readers know about it?

MM Well, it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before, so it’s a little hard to describe. A lot of people have compared it to “The Office” or the 90’s sitcom “Sports Night.” The show takes place behind the scenes here at Maddy G, as we produce the scenes for our various movies and projects. It’s scripted, so the scenarios are pretty outrageous, and we like to poke a lot of fun at the industry and ourselves, in general. It features all the Play Place Girls and myself, and the story lines continue through each episode, so you can follow along and really get wrapped up in the dramedy of it.
There’s been a lot of interest in the show from cable broadcasters recently, so I’m hoping we can put together a deal that will allow everyone to see the show on television. Right now, about 250,000 viewers tune in online each month.

W!Any luck on teaching yourself to squirt?

MM I’m still working on it. My new friends at Maturitoy.com have just sent me some things I’m hoping will help.

W! How do you keep Marie Madison separate from your private life, or are the two parts of you one and the same now?

MM Other than the fact that Marie Madison isn’t on my birth certificate, it’s one and the same. My friends inside and outside of the industry call me Maddy, and everyone knows I do porn. The actual work part of being a business owner is real, but I’m lucky that I get to do this for a living, especially in this industry in this economy. For me it’s my whole life, I don’t just turn Marie Madison on and off.

W! You’re a fan of Sasha Grey. Have you been keeping up with her role on Entourage? What do you think of her showing her bush on the show, and the internet backlash?

MM Well, I didn’t know there was an Internet backlash. I have been watching the show, and I think she’s got a beautiful bush, so you know… thanks to HBO for showing it. The story arch so far seems to be that Vince’s life and career are being dragged into the gutter by a drug taking, tequila-swilling porn star. It surprised me a little that Sasha Grey is playing this part as herself, but I don’t actually know Sasha. We’ve never met. So, I don’t know. Either way, she seems to be okay with portraying herself that way, so whatever. It’s not the choice I would have made.

W! What can we look forward to from Maddy G and Marie’s Play Place? Anything in particular from Marie Madison?

MM Mark Audess is developing a big budget feature called Possession that will be the biggest thing we’ve done so far, if we can pull it off. Some of the biggest names in porn have already signed onto the project just from reading the script — so I think you’ll be hearing more about this soon. I’m in the process of filming another micro-fetish film called The BlackMail Society that deals with blackmail fetish, and it’ll be done soon. There’s a Regarding Jenny 2 script floating around, and a super hero fantasy called The Adventures of Bubble Girl & Pixie Stixx, and there’s a million other ideas. That’s the thing with Maddy G. You just never know what you’re going to get.

  1. Maried is a really hot woman. But I really thing that she needs to geting to SM. She made one sometime back called the “Agency” and that was hot.

  2. Cough Cough, (sic!), Cough! Ahem. Excuse me. Had something stuck in my throat there. What I meant to say was, I totally agree with you; “Agency” was hot shit.
