PORN VALLEY—Famed Sarah Palin impersonator Lisa Ann and actor/director C.J. Wright have been friends "like, forever," and so it wasn't too much of stretch for him to prod Lisa to helm her first movie for Wright's own releasing company, Justin Slayer International.
And of course, it didn't hurt that the entire cast, including C.J. himself, is repped by Lisa Ann Talent Management.
"C.J. Wright's been asking me for a long time why I never directed," Lisa explained. "He's also been on set with me quite a few times where he says I do direct. So he said, 'Why don't we utilize your girls and do something different for Justin Slayer Productions and myself, and giving a different spin on what we already shoot and what our format is?'"
The two have worked together several times, most recently in Lisa Ann: MILF Trainer, so they know each other's likes and strengths... but it couldn't hurt that they chose the entire cast from Lisa's talent agency, which gave each performer an added incentive to do his or her best work.
"I got to pick some of my favorite girls," Lisa gushed. "One of my newest girls on my team is Vannah Sterling; she is phenomenal, an all-around great person to talk to and to be with; and then Syren De Mer, I'm excited because this is only her second movie with her new boobs and she looks just rad; she's great, totally an awesome woman. And then Sheila Marie, who we all know and is a pro and has been around for quite some time, and does an awesome anal scene; and then Cinnamon Love, because this is an interracial movie, we did a reverse interracial scene; her and John Espizedo. So it worked out that all my girls got to be a part of this project, and Vannah and I are going to do some more press together on it, which gives us a chance to spend more time together and get to know each other better, so all around it's a good thing."
So between Lisa's connection to the performers and C.J.'s connection to Justin Slayer, the timing of the project couldn't have been better.
"This is the first thing I've done for Justin Slayer Productions," Lisa said, "and I've gotten to know [producer] HJ really well through this process and he's been really great."
And of course, Lisa's scene is with C.J. himself.
"When she and I first got together on this, I said, 'I want a look for you that no one's ever seen'," C.J. told AVN. "Up to this point, she's been known as Serra Paylin, the all-American mom, the all-American MILF, and I really wanted to go against that grain, and hit the public with a Catwoman type of attitude, real bitchy and real scratchy, so we went over a few latex costumes with each other, and we found a good mix, and we put it together."
It's a dark scene, shot in a North Hollywood dungeon within a jail cell.
"It's almost a torture chamber type of feel," C.J. recalled, "and I'm sitting in that, and Lisa walks down; I'm handcuffed and blindfolded and she's throwing water on me, looking for a response, and slapping me in the face, in the chest—it's so different for her, and we stopped a few times because she's like, 'Did I slap you too hard? Are you okay?' And I'm like, 'Just give it a try; go full throttle; slap me around a few times and get my reaction.'"
"I was wearing like black slacks, a long dress shirt with black boots," he continued, "and she's wearing all latex, and I'm blindfolded with a black silk scarf, and it's real dark and real red. She walks around me a few times, trying to get my attention, throws water on me and slaps me around a little bit; it's demonstrating her dominance, her strength. But once we started fucking, it was more mutual."
The couple essay several anal positions, some in a specially designed chair "where she could really put her butt in the air," C.J. said. "She could get on her side, or get on her back and put her legs really far back, so there was a lot of anal penetration, a lot of anal views for the camera to see."
