Interview Exclusive: Porn Superstar Bonnie Rotten

It’s rare when you can see someone excelling at their job, and all of a sudden you look at their eyes and hear them talk and immediately think, “Holy shit, this person was born to do this!” But that’s the way I feel about Bonnie Rotten and her porn career.

Not that she wouldn’t have been great at other things; a hot girl, who’s smart, self-aware and very driven would go far in many fields, but there’s something about the mix of her talents that makes you feel like she was engineered in a lab to create a perfect porn star.

The winner of the 2014 AVN Female Performer of the Year has obvious physical attributes that help a great deal when it comes to being cast often in adult movies, but her talents go way beyond her very pretty face and smoking body. Her intense scenes, anal specialty, squirting talent, charming personality, avid networking and business instinct combined to form what became one of the most well rounded porn stars we’ve seen in a long time.

Appearing much wiser than her actual 21 years, this Cincinnati native already has an impressive filmography that includes well over 100 movies, and has managed to become one of the most sought after starlets in the industry.

While visiting the Salon Erotico de Barcelona last weekend, I met up with Bonnie for a quick interview. It wasn’t easy, as everyone and their grandma wanted a piece of her. Adoring fans waited for pictures, local porn companies offered new shoots and Barcelona’s nightlife claimed her endless energy and presence.

After emailing back and forth a few times and not being able to break into her busy schedule, I finally met Bonnie at the Salon Erotico show, where she was — as she would put it herself — “shaking her tits, squirting on people and meeting fans.”

She has a way with people. My friend Dinorah (Badoink’s Content Manager) was next to me with a camera when I met her and asked me to try to smile when talking to her. That is probably the easiest direction I’ve ever had to follow, because I find it pretty damn impossible not to smile when you meet this girl. It’s really not just about her image, but how she presents and handles herself around people. She has an aura that reels you in.

It’s that proficiency at selling her image that makes her so easily marketable. She seems to know exactly who she is and what she needs to do. The adult industry might be a cold, merciless business for some people, but Bonnie’s too good at this not to succeed.

“I see (the name Bonnie Rotten) as a brand,” she told me confidently, “I have a production company, Mental Beauty, which is distributed by Girlfriends Films. I have merchandise, I have toys, I have websites. I have all kinds of stuff; so yeah, I’d like to say I am a brand. And I’m trademarked! So I guess that does make me a brand, right?”

I’d say more than Johnny Rotten ever was a brand. The Sex Pistols singer who inspired Bonnie’s stage name may be a very famous rock legend, but a) he hasn’t used that moniker in many years, and b) Johnny surely didn’t have that beautiful smile, tight body and squirting abilities.

Her propensity for female ejaculation is one of the most remarkable things about Bonnie’s scenes. Many women go throughout their lives without ever being able to squirt, but Bonnie started doing it at an age that most girls aren’t even sexually active.

“I actually squirted for the first time when I was 13, and I thought I’d peed!” she confessed, “I was like ‘what the fuck? I should probably make sure I use the restroom before I fuck, right?’ But no, it was squirt!”

It wasn’t until a few years later that it started happening regularly. “I hadn’t actually done it for a very long time because I didn’t know how to do it, or how to train myself to do it,” Bonnie explained.  “I went to L.A. when I was 18 and I met a guy (there). He would finger me and I would literally fucking squirt buckets. His couch was drenched, the floor was drenched, I was drenched, and I was like ‘Oh my God!’”

The new discovery was probably one of the catalysts for her soon to be profession. “Then I got into porn, and I was working with great talent that could make me do it all the time,” she said with full professional satisfaction, “So now I have the skill.”

The other very obvious feature Bonnie has that stands out at first glance are her tattoos. Many people — including her agent, at first — were not sure how much work she could get because her body’s covered in them.

Although often categorized as an “alt porn” girl — mainly based on the large amount of ink that adorns her skin, she’s quick to dismiss the term. “I hate that! I’m not an alt girl. There’s nothing wrong with alt girls, they’re obviously beautiful as well, and I love girls with tattoos; but I work for all mainstream companies. I’ve never worked for an alt company. I’ve never done just alt. So to be categorized as that is like discrimination almost, to me, because I’ve worked so hard to prove that I’m a pretty girl with tattoos and not an alt girl.”

Perceptions are starting to change in the industry, though, and now ink is becoming more frequent in mainstream porn. “There’s been a couple of other girls in our business that are heavily tattooed and are glamorous, so I think that it’s kind of coming around.”

bonnie_rotten_portraitWinning Performer of the Year at the 2014 AVNs sure helped to illustrate that shift in the public perception. It also doesn’t hurt that she’s one of the hardest working starlets in the industry, and has further established herself with her production company and her new ventures into directing.

These directorial efforts tend to create fun atmospheres to work in, although they’ve all been considerably different scenarios. What they do have in common is their ever-present intensity.

“I like passion. I don’t want anyone to fake it,” Bonnie explained when I asked her what she looks for in the actors she chooses for her own movies. “I don’t want it to be like a girl getting fucked and looking at her watch. No! That’s not happening! I’m never going to hire a girl like that. I’m never going to work with a girl like that. No girl like that is ever going to be in my movie.”

Passion and honesty are things that we don’t always see in porn, which is kind of disconcerting, but it’s cool to hear one of the biggest young names in the business stress its importance. She’s specific about the kind of actors and co-stars she chooses for her own productions. “That’s what I look for: I want people that are sexual athletes, if you will.”

This excitement and the connection she creates with fellow performers might be the simple secret of her success.

“My first film was To the Core; it was a lesbian bondage movie; Very stylized, very cinematic and pretty. My second was Anal Candy Disco Chicks, which was all candy, afros, psychedelic crazy sets, fucking candy in buttholes… All kinds of stuff!” She laughs at that. “So that was a really fun movie.

“And then my third movie, I just did; it just came out! It’s called BonnieLand, where I did my first double vag!” Bonnie said while shrugging with shy pride. “In a gangbang. A six-guy gangbang.”

But while the porn market in the United States has seen plenty of Bonnie Rotten in the past couple of years, she’s now expanding her brand overseas. Not only at the Salon Erotico in Barcelona, but several other countries that await their chance to see Bonnie performing for their cameras.

“I’m going to keep producing more movies. I’m looking to coming over to Europe and shooting more stuff, and having more of a European presence.”

It’s been a busy international schedule for Bonnie, who was also working in South Africa the week before coming to Spain. “Now I’m shooting a movie in Mallorca and one in Berlin. This is my Bonnie Rotten World Tour!”

It’s crazy when you see someone so young making so many conscious financial and creative decisions so early in their career. The even scarier part? She seems to be only scratching the surface, because Bonnie Rotten was simply born to be a porn star.
