What are your stats/measurements?
Ember Snow: I’m 4’11” and weigh 90 lbs. My measurements are 32C-24-32
How did you create the name?
Ember Snow: The weekend that I made the decision to do porn as a career, I was in Northern Idaho and experienced falling snow for the first time in my life. I love how pure it was and how peaceful it gets when the snow is falling. It was very serene. I’d always liked the name Ember (shortened from November) and thought that the dichotomy of the two went well together. The heat of an Ember and the purity of Snow.
What do you enjoy most about being a pornstar?
Ember Snow: Mostly, it’s about being able to explore my sexuality in a safe and open environment. I love being able to test my limits and find out if the things I see other people doing will actually turn me on as well. Example: I always thought I would never be able to do anal scenes. But I worked with a lot of butt plugs and dildos for over a year before I tried. Guess what? I love it!! In fact sometimes I like it more in my ass than in my pussy! But yeah, trying to explore all this stuff in real life can be difficult and frustrating. Here I can be as open and free as I want to be.
Do you have any other jobs other than being a pornstar?
Ember Snow: I am working on a mainstream producing career, but first I’m going to do more work in the adult world. I’ve just finished producing my first adult feature which stars Cherie DeVille, Chloe Cherry, Jill Kassidy and Gina Valentina… and me, but I’m a minor character in it. This was more about showcasing my skills producing rather than having sex. It’s almost done with post production and then we’ll be looking for a buyer.
Where's the most exotic location that you've filmed a shoot?
Ember Snow: I shot a squirt video with my phone in the restroom of the restaurant where I ate lunch today. I’m kidding. Seriously, I haven’t really had any “exotic” shoots. We’ve shot in some really nice houses with incredible views of the city, but I have yet to go out of the country or even to Hawaii to shoot. (hint hint)
Do you get recognized when you're out?
Ember Snow: If I get recognized, usually the fans don’t approach me. I used to think that no one ever recognized me, but then I got an e-mail from a guy who works in a restaurant I used to go to a lot. he said he recognized me and wanted to tell me that he was a big fan and offered me some coupon for the place. Nothing against him, but it freaked me out because it was the first time I found out that someone recognized me.
The second was a former employer who came on my cam site and started talking about how he always thought I was hot when we worked together and was trying to get me to meet up with him. But most of the fans who recognize me (and I can hear them talking) don’t approach me. Probably because I may be with my manager or my business partners. But I want to tell all the guys and girls out there that if they do recognize me and want to say “hi”, it’s OK, but please be respectful.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
Ember Snow: I will most likely still be shooting adult films, but I want to move behind the camera more and, of course, start producing my first mainstream projects. I also would like to start a website with a series of videos showcasing girls who are new to the industry. I feel like there are a lot of girls out there who are curious about the industry but are afraid to try. I want to show them that it isn’t scary at all and it can be a lot of fun and empowering for them as well.
What's your favorite sexual position on & off camera & why
Ember Snow: It’s the same both on and off camera – cowgirl. I like to be on top and like to control how the cock is going in and out of my pussy. I like to control the speed and the depth. I also like doggy, but I have less control there. When I’m on top, I can control the orgasms I have and then I can just let the guy lay back and relax while my pussy milks his cock dry.
Which pornstar would you most like to work with?
Ember Snow: Riley Reid. I have been trying for two years to try and get cast with her, but it hasn’t happened yet. When I was first getting into the industry, she was one of the girls I was in awe of. I was going to self-produce a scene with myself, Riley and Jill Kassidy, but the funding fell through, so we’re looking for a new patron to fund it.
Talk us through an average shoot day?
Ember Snow: Really it’s about waking up, usually very early in the morning. Some shoots provide hair and make-up on set, others require us to do it ourselves. I try to grab something to eat on the way to the set. Once we’re there and are all made up and dressed, we usually do photo sets.
The first is usually of me by myself dressed as my character. If there’s another girl, they’ll do a set of her solo as well before putting us together for another set. Eventually we do a run through of the scene and take stills of the different positions for the website. Then, once that’s all out of the way, we perform the scene.
We start with the set-up, which is usually scripted or improvised, depending on the shoot. Then we move into the sex. This part of the shoot can take as little as 30 minutes and up to several hours. It all depends on who we’re shooting for and what they want. When the scene is over, I usually shower (especially if there is a cum shot), fill out my paperwork so I can get paid and then go home.
I’ll eat soon after that and then, if it was a long, grueling day I’ll usually watch a movie and go to bed, or if it was a short scene that wasn’t very strenuous, I’ll do a short cam show to make a little extra money. Sometimes I’m still horny after the shoot, so I need a little more of a release. The cam shows help because my fans on there know I can be a little oversexed sometimes.
Are any sex acts taboo for you and why?
Ember Snow: I have never been a fan of scenes that are degrading or humiliating, for either partner. Even when I do a cuckold scene, I try to make it fun for the “victim”. I’m very sex positive and try to only accept work that promotes this. Also, anything that depicts women as being underage or any implied incest. I’ll fuck a stepbrother or an adopted brother all day if you let me, but there has to be a definite line drawn between blood relations.
Are there any sex acts that you haven’t shot yet but want to?
Ember Snow: Many. I have never done a professional scene with more than one male partner (I’ve shot three scenes, self produced, with two guys – you can find them in my ManyVids Store (link below). I would love to shoot a blow bang, a gang bang and I am working myself up to doing a DP scene very soon! I’m a very kinky girl. I like to present myself as sweet and classy, but if you give me 5 dicks to play with I’m going to make them all cum and then ask for more.
What's the funniest thing that's happened during a shoot?
Ember Snow: On the set of my self-produced feature, one of the actors was doing a dialogue scene and forgot his line. He froze, then tensed up as he tried to remember what to say. The other actor casually remarked, “Are you going to poop?” Needless to say that brought the entire set to it’s knees with laughter. We have it as an outtake. We might include it in the extra features.
Has the stigma around the adult industry affected you?
Ember Snow: I think it effects everybody whenever we are recognized or “outed” for what we do. I think the biggest reaction I get is that a lot of guys think that just because I do porn, I will fuck anybody and therefore I should fuck them. People need to understand that porn is a job and for me, it is not a lifestyle or a psychological disorder.
Most people, when they meet me, can’t believe I do porn. And I like that. But there are a lot of people who make assumptions about my sexual activities off set. I wish these people would treat me like they would treat any other girl. And even then, I think we deal with issues of respect in general, not just within the porn industry. If I wasn’t an adult performer, and you were to ask me if I like to suck cock, fuck multiple partners and eat pussy, I would smile and say, “Yes!” But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to be choosy about who I do those things with.
As far as how do I handle it? If someone has a problem with what I do, then they can have that problem. That’s their right. It’s just sad that people aren’t willing to see the other side of the coin. People who have issues with what I do should get to know me and understand what kind of person I am. They’d be surprised to find out that I’m not on drugs, not being trafficked and I’m growing my business to become as successful as possible to secure my future and the future of my extended family. So, haters are gonna hate. But I don’t hate them back.
What's the most difficult thing about being a pornstar?
Ember Snow: It used to be that if you were pretty and willing to fuck, you got a lot of work and could rise to the top of the heap a lot faster. Now, it’s all about your social media. When I got into this business, I didn’t have a Twitter, Instagram or Facebook page. Over the last two years, when I am not actively working, I am constantly on Twitter, trying to build my following and gain the attention of the biggest directors and production companies in the business.
It’s hard work. I just launched my Instagram last September and my numbers are slowly picking up. On top of that, every performer has to either be a club dancer, a cam model or a clip store producer to make the kinds of money they used to make in the 90s. So, if people think we just fuck and go home to our mansions, they’re solely mistaken.
What advice would you give to someone wanting to get into the industry?
Ember Snow: Come talk to me!! Guys AND girls. I can draw you a road map to success because I have been given advice by over 30 different people from all walks of life in this business and I have experienced was does and does not work. Also, I can work out a financial plan for you that will ensure that you are always going to have money for the rest of your life. Don’t get into this business to make money today, get into to make money when you’re in your 70s and can’t work anymore.
What hobbies & interests do you have outside of the adult industry?
Ember Snow: I’m really into video games. Assasin’s Creed and Kingdom Hearts are just a couple of my favorites. I also love to travel, but I haven’t had as many opportunities as I would like. There’s still a lot of this country that I want to see.
Is sex with you off camera different to what you see on film
Ember Snow: It’s only different in that the dynamic with my real-life partners comes from a place of mutual, emotional feelings, as opposed to the dynamic with my on screen partners being mostly manufactured. I hope that made sense.
This is not to say that I dislike my scene partners. Far from it. Over 90% of my partners have been absolute joys to work with. That’s why my energy level is usually very high, I’m very vocal, and I’m usually smiling. I’m having a blast doing this and I want everyone to know I am. I’m the same way in private, but again, the connection with my real-life partners is a little deeper and more spiritual.
To date which porn scene are you most proud of & why?
Ember Snow: My first anal scene for HardX with Ramon Nomar. When I got into the industry, I thought I would never be able to take a cock in my ass. But as I started camming, and began to experiment with a thin butt plug and eventually started moving up to larger items. However, after a year of this, I still didn’t feel I was ready.
I was scared that I would get on set and, with all this money riding on me being able to do this, I would tense up and ruin the scene. Then I found out who my co-star was. Ramon is fucking HUGE!! I was so scared and nervous that day. But I’d had several other girls – anal queens all – who told me that a cock always feels better than a dildo or a butt plug and not to worry. So, I did it. And I have to say, it was AMAZING. His cock just slipped right in and he was fucking me hard! Harder than I thought I could handle. But it all went very well. It’s easily one of my favorite scenes and one of my best, but I’m proud of it because it was me finally taking that step that would propel me to the next level.
Do you watch porn? If so what type?
Ember Snow: I mostly watch my own. Does that make me narcissistic? I really like high-end “pretty” porn, especially the work of director Andrew Blake from the late 80s and early 90s.
The women were so beautiful and the shots were just sexy as fuck! I always thought they could marry that “high-end” look and make the scenes a little kinkier – more group scenes, blow bangs, gang bangs or just tackling slightly more taboo topics. Some day that’s what I want to do. But yeah, today I mostly watch my own stuff so I can see what I’m doing right and also learn from my mistakes.
If you were interviewing a pornstar what would you ask them? & answer this question
Ember Snow: Aside from the money, what is the exact reason why you want to do this and how far are you willing to take it? Again, exploring my sexuality is a big reason why I do this. However, I also got into this because of my desire to produce films. It’s easier to get into the porn industry than it is to break into mainstream Hollywood. And when you’re working in porn, you are on set every single day.
You learn production very quickly. I have received 4 years of film school training in less than a year and I just finished producing my first feature. So, I am already way ahead of my goals. As far as how far am I willing to take it? There is little I won’t do in the way of scenes, and I want to become the biggest Asian star in the world. But I need the fans to help me get there by tweeting their favorite companies and demanding they shoot me! Going to my PornHub page and liking all my scenes. Following me on Instagram (link below) and engaging with me there. The more you show how much you love my work, the more work I will get.
What really turns you on?
Ember Snow: Really hot women and hard cocks. That’s why I like TS performers so much. I have been into women since I was in junior high. I dated guys and lost my virginity to a guy, but I was in a non-sexual lesbian relationship with a girl for several years. She was the one who was afraid to cross the line, and I just kept waiting and waiting and waiting.
The whole time I was with her, I was going crazy. We kissed and touched a lot but she wouldn’t take it any further. So, my first chance to hook up with a girl who was willing, I went for it. And almost every time I have been with a girl since, it’s been the same way. This doesn’t mean I don’t like men. I love men and the penis feels so much better than a dildo inside my pussy, but externally, really hot girls turn me on really fast. I think guys can relate to this.
