Good Releasing Interview: Jolene Parton

What is your favorite porno of all time?

Surprisingly, I don’t watch a whole lot of porn.  That said, the best porno I can think of isn’t porn at all, it’s a “regular” movie: The Dreamers.  Sex, blood, classic cinema, and Paris.  Perfect.

What sex toy(s) do you like to use on film?

I love rope!  I love to be tied up and have my costars do what they will.  Also, strap-ons.  The bigger, pinker, and sparklier, the better.

If you could have a Good Vibrations Shopping Spree, what would you put in your cart?

Oh gosh, so many choices.  I definitely would love to have an Eleven, they’re so beautiful that they’re more art than sex toy.  I would also definitely take some classic porn to enhance my small library, probably Behind The Green Door or Alice in Wonderland.  And I can never have enough lube!

What was it like working on set for this film (with Good Releasing)?

I’ve never had anything but fantastic experiences on set.  Everyone is so friendly and inclusive.  The first one (Seven Minutes In Heaven: Coming Out) was a little scary, because we had no script and few guidelines to work with, but once I met my costars, it was pretty easy!  There’s really no better job than having sex with gorgeous, interesting people all day.  And the more experienced actors are always so helpful and so fun to work with.  It’s been a really fantastic introduction to the porn industry.

If you could give one piece of sex advice, what would it be?

Don’t be afraid to smile and giggle!  Sex is fun, and sometimes funny.  It doesn’t have to be so serious.  Relax!

What do you believe is the biggest myth about sex?

That sex has to mean vaginal penetration.  Sex can be anything you want it to be.  Broadening your definition of sex can be incredibly freeing.

Who are your influential co-stars, directors, both folks you’ve worked with and those you’d like to work with?

I’ve had a lot of fun working with everyone I’ve met, but the two that really stand out are Puck Goodfellow and Tina Horn.  The scene in Seven Minutes In Heaven where Puck and I fucked (hehe, rhyme) was just incredible to shoot.  I couldn’t stand up for a little while afterward!  He’s like the Energizer bunny, he just keeps going and going and going…

Tina tied me up on the stairs in Bordello, which was one of the most fantastic sexual experiences I’ve ever had.  I love standing still and patient while someone binds me into ropes, and she’s really a pro at it.  Her energy is very intense, and to be on the receiving end of that energy is incredible.

How do you prepare for your sex scenes?

Lots of stretching, a lot of hair dye, and a long and frustrating search through my lingerie drawer, usually.

How has having access to sex-positive information and support change your life?

I grew up in a community that was fairly sex-positive, and I was lucky enough to have very comprehensive sex education in school, many times.  As a result, I’ve always had a very healthy attitude about my own sexuality and I’ve never been afraid to express it.  Getting involved in the sex industry has opened me up even more to parts of myself and my sexuality that I didn’t even know were there, especially because I’ve been lucky enough to be in a part of the industry where everyone is very positive, loving, and educated about alternative sexualities.

What projects are you working on now?

I’m working on something I don’t want to really talk about just yet, but I’m really really super excited about it.  I’ve found that while I love the San Francisco queer porn industry, there really isn’t a whole lot out there in the way of independent, sex-positive, realistic straight porn, and that’s what this next project is hoping to change.

Where can fans find more of your work?
I’m on twitter.  I don’t have a website just yet, but soon!  I’ve also started a tumblr blog at, that I’m just starting to get off the ground.
