WOODLAND HILLS, Calif.—Sadie West is standing in the spacious foyer of a luxury home deep in Porn Valley wearing only black lingerie and heels. She is the star of this morning’s scene for Third Degree’s sixth edition of Miles Long’s Nylons series.
Long is sitting on the floor with his digital camera about 10 feet away from West, directing her movements.
“Wowsers, yes, yes. Stay there. Don’t move. That’s wonderful,” he says. “I think we have a box cover in there.”
There is light jazz music playing on the small set. Long’s production assistant Jimmy and makeup artist are the only other people in the home when I arrive about 11.
After Long gets his shot, West steps outside onto the back patio for a smoke.
She tells me that Long has directed her before—early on in her career, which started about a year and a half ago. She says she recently signed on with agent Mark Spiegler after her exclusive contract with New Sensations ended.
“I feel like he truly has my best interest in mind,” she says. “It was cool to experience the contract thing.”
West, a contender for AVN’s Best New Starlet award in January, tells me she has about 50 scenes on her résumé. The 21-year-old says that “life is a journey” and that she is doing “what I want to do.”
“I’m not going to stop my hustle,” she adds.
A few minutes later, Mr. Pete rolls into the driveway in a white luxury sedan with rims. Once inside, he greets West warmly.
“What’s up? We meet again,” she says to him as they hug.
Jimmy offers Mr. Pete an Egg McMuffin, and he replies, “Thanks, I just ate fast food.”
Long decides that he wants to shoot the sex scene right on the circular stairwell that provided the background for the still photo shoot.
He tells me the scenes in this movie are more than just a girl wearing sexy nylons.
“I try to match the girl with the outfit,” he says. “And a lot of the focus is on the nylons during the sex. I look for girls with a nice butt and long legs because you can’t focus on the nylons without that.”
As Long makes final lighting adjustments and checks his equipment, West starts blowing Pete in the living room to get him ready for the scene. The fluff is an unexpected perk for the 29-year-old veteran, but West gets into her job.
Forty minutes later the two are fucking even when the camera isn’t rolling.
“I can always tell when it’s a good scene when the talent forgets that they’re on a set,” Long remarks.
Nylons 6 is available now from Third Degree.
