Newly 19-year-old Jillian Janson came to SoCal from her native Minnesota and started doing scenes in August 2013. Formerly a webcam performer (plus some gigs as a telemarketer and waitress), she came to adult straight from high school and has done 50 scenes by her own count, including shoots with James Deen and Xander Corvus.
Hometown: "Small towns, around Minneapolis, Minnesota."
How old are you? Just turned 19 in May
Measurements: 5-foot-7, 135 lbs., 34C ("I don't know, I just have curves")
How did you start with this?
I was doing webcamming. A guy contacted me and he wound up being my agent.
What did you do before this?
I was in high school. I did a lot of things for work: I was a telemarketer for a year, and before I came here I was a waitress and hostess. I loved it. I'm a people person.
How many scenes have you done now?
50. I've been in the business since August.
What's the best scene you've done so far?
I worked a lot with Mason. She's really fun to work with, because through he entire scene she makes you feel beautiful. It drives up your energy.
Who do you want to work with that you haven't worked with yet?
Hmm. I've pretty much worked with everyone I want to work with. You've got your typical hotties like James Deen, Xander, Chris Stokes. There are some girls, but I don’t have a list.
How is making videos different from what you thought?
Before I went into the business I didn’t have a clue. The first one I shot, I didn’t know what to do, I didn't know the facial expressions. In my personal life I just laid there, but on camera you've got to do more: Facial expressions and sound. I wasn't really one to moan.
Do you like working in the adult industry?
Yes. It's starting to bring out a lot of my creativity. I'm really into photography, creating moments. I've been making videos of my nieces and editing them together.
What are your biggest turn-ons?
A good-smelling man. I can't do odor. It makes it ten times worse if the guy is sweating and his breath stinks. That's a turnoff. Actual effort: the guy can't be boring, can't be not into it. I need guys to be into it. Some guys have the size, but they don't know how to use it. I don't care about the size, I care about how you use it. That's my turn-on. Sensual, romantic, that's my vibe.
Describe your dream sexual scenario.
I don't really have one. For the longest time, the thought in my head was that I wanted to try bondage, and I tried it and it was good. That was my fantasy.
What three personal items would you take if you were stranded on a desert island?
I would say my Hitachi, some kind of solar-powered battery adapter so I could plug it in, and my phone.
What's the most valuable life lesson you've learned?
All those years ... [Chuckle] I learned a lot, actually. I was bitter and cranky all the time until I realized that sometimes there's no tomorrow. You don't know when you're going to die. It's important to have people there for you, to care for you. My mother supported me through this career, but my dad didn't want to deal with it. I miss my family more than ever. I'm missing my nieces growing up.
How would you spend your last day on earth?
With my family. I'm going to try to have as many of those days as I can.
How do you spend your free time?
Cleaning and organizing. I just did a spring cleaning on my computer and I deleted over 30,000 files. I read, I watch TV.
If you weren't doing this, what would you like to be doing?
Photography, video editing. I'm thinking about going to college and what I'm going to do. I want to do something important, like a nurse or something.
Do you have a long-range plan?
I do. I'm more advanced than you would think for an 18-year-old. There is so much creative that I want to do that I can't put my mind to one thing. I express myself a lot. I'd like to be a writer.
Food you would be able to eat every day: Pasta. It's really bad for you. I'm getting more into salad.
Best concert you've been to: Jingle Ball. A lot of people I didn't know at the time, but it's music I'm now into.
One thing you would like to change about yourself: I'm fine the way I am. I'd like to be healthier.
