You better know Joanna Angel.

From an English Literature graduate at Rutgers to your BurningAngel Empire, what have been the most exciting moments in your career?

I would have to say the most exciting moment of my career was winning my first AVN award. It was my first year ever going to the show and I won for "Most Outrageous Sex Scene", from Re-Penetrator. I was so happy. My company was so small, and to be able to walk away with an award like all the other big companies really made me feel special.

Do you remember what you were doing when you thought of BurningAngel? What was the motivation to make it happen?

I was doing my dishes. My motivation was that I didn't want to get a "real job" and I didn't really want to go to grad school. Porn has since became my "real job", however it is a hell of a lot more fun than any other career out there.

When men think of women with tattoos and colored hair most think of Suicide Girls. What is your opinion on what they do?

They are one of the originators of this genre and they are certainly the biggest. It's just different from what we do. Personally, I think the website is a little too "polished" but I think that is what they were going for anyways. I like my porn a little rough around the edges and with, you know…, penises and vaginas going into one another. They obviously had a different theory on this. On a business level though I respect what they do as they have gotten very far.

A lot of men have switched their interest from blonde barbies to pale inked-up pinups. Why do you think that is?

Well a lot of men have switched and a lot of men haven't. There are still a lot of stereotypical barbie dolls in porn that make a lot more money and have a lot more fans than your average tattooed, pale skin, dark haired pin-up girl. That’s just fact. Alt porn hasn't taken over the world and we still have a long way to go. However I do think a lot of people have switched their taste, because in the 90's the only porn stars around were the ones with that barbie doll look. Basically 15 years ago if you weren't watching porn from Vivid or Wicked, you probably weren't watching porn at all. That is just the way it was. Now there are a lot more options and varieties of girls out there so people don’t have to settle for the first movie they see.

I would suspect that with you, as well as many of the other beautiful girls on BurningAngel, music drives a big part of your look and style. Would you find music to be a major influence to the way you live?

Yes, definitely. I have been going to shows and concerts since I was about 14 years old and all the good friends I had growing up were people I met in the music scene. We do a lot of cross promotions with record labels and bands on BurningAngel. My company is based on sex and rock n roll. Without one, the other is just not as exciting.

If you could name one band or musician that has had the most impact on you who would it be?

That would probably be Brendon Small. He is the creator of the cartoon Metalocalypse and writes all the music for the band in the show Dethklok. I look up to him because he has so many different talents and he combines them all together on his show. He writes and plays music as well as writes and does the voices for the cartoon.

What adult star do you regard in the highest?

My close friend Jenna Haze really has an amazing career. While her career is very different than mine, she really works her ass off and doesn't let anyone bring her down. She does a lot herself without the help of an agent or manager or anything like that. She knows a lot about all the different aspects of the industry and she is very good at what she does.

You just released the second issue of BurningAngel Magazine. What kind of features can readers see inside and where can it be found?

The magazine is very similar to the website.. There are band interviews, some record reviews, and sexy naked photos of hot punk chicks. There are also some interviews with the girls as well as an "on the set" piece from a journalist who visits one of our movie sets. In general the tone of the magazine is very goofy and fun. It's a good easy read as well as good, you know, masturbation material. I have wanted to make a magazine for a long time and I just didn't have the resources. When magma publishing group asked us if we wanted to team up and do this together, it seemed like the perfect opportunity as they are the biggest XXX magazine distributor. The magazine can be found just about anywhere that adult magazines are sold and also in the store on BurningAngel.com.

Men can sometimes get shit for owning a sex toy like the Fleshlight. What is your stance on men and sex toys?

I think everyone should be able to practice what they want in their own bedroom without getting shit from anyone! Well, as long as it's consensual. I can't really think of any way that a Fleshlight could be not consensual.

You are both behind the camera and in front of the camera. Which do you prefer?

I love being in the movies that I have created, putting them together, and also having sex in them. I still love directing scenes that I am not in, but sometimes I just get slightly annoyed that I’m not the one getting laid.

Finally, what can we expect to see from BurningAngel in the coming year?

You will see new videos, new photos and better community and interactive features. We are just going to be a bigger and better version of what we are now. We are always doing something new so please check in frequently! You won't get bored, I promise.
