Tell us a bit about yourself.
Penny Barber: My name is Penny Barber. I’m a content producer in the San Francisco Bay Area, but often travel to LA and Las Vegas to work as an adult actor. I specialize in taboo role play and fetish scenes.
What are your stats/measurements?
Penny Barber: 34DD-26-36; 5’6”, 135 lbs.
How did you start within the industry?
Penny Barber: It’s a touching, classic story: I was eighteen and needed money.
How did you create the name?
Penny Barber: There’s an old Disney movie from 1977 called The Rescuers. The little girl in it is named Penny. At the time, I looked a bit like the character: I wore overall dresses, had pigtails, and was into teddy bears. I mean, I was barely eighteen. As for Barber, the woman who was training me to be a pro domme pitched it. I didn’t want to be so rude as to solicit advice, then eschew it, so…my name’s Penny Barber!
What do you enjoy most about being a porn star?
Penny Barber: You can’t beat the hours. And of course, I like being able to earn a living as a creator.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time?
Penny Barber: I’m where I want to be. I’m writing, producing, and acting. It would be wonderful to do it all on a larger scale. Someone give me a fat budget!
What’s your favorite sexual position on & off camera & why?
Penny Barber: Missionary is so pleasurable. I know it’s basic but gazing into my partner’s face during sex intensifies my orgasms. I want to look at him, to run my hands up and down his perfect body. But the missionary position doesn’t look great on camera, mostly showing a man’s back. On camera, I like to 69.
Are there any sex acts that you want to shoot?
Penny Barber: Would you believe me if I said I’d never given a blow job?
Which pornstar would you most like to work with?
Penny Barber: Ooh. There are a lot. Natasha Nixx and September Reign are both beautiful and talented. Princess Kira would make a great alt stepdaughter. Bad Kittyyy is so sweet and sexy. Jaxson Briggs. Alyx Star. Kira Noir. I’d be thrilled to work with director Laurent Sky.
What would you change about the adult industry?
Penny Barber: I’d like protection against financial discrimination. The internet is basically the new world economy and not being able to accept payments at all or only being able to accept them at a huge cost denies me the right to support myself and provide for my dependents.
Has the stigma around the adult industry affected you?
Penny Barber: I’ve never met an interesting, kind, or cool person who held my profession against me. Most of the oppression related to my job comes from credit card companies, banks, and other businesses.
What’s the weirdest thing that you’ve been asked to do during a shoot?
Penny Barber: I had to teach a room full of people how to waltz before an orgy scene. It was surreal.
What advice would you give to someone wanting to get into the industry?
Penny Barber: There may not be a degree in adult entertainment available, but an informal education will still benefit you. Sign up for Fulltime Filmmaker. Watch YouTube tutorials. Read anything you can find on film production, marketing, design, etc. Right now, I’m reading a book on production design and it’s more applicable than I would have guessed it would be.
Have you ever been grossed out during a shoot?
Penny Barber: The only times I’ve been absolutely disgusted have been when someone on set thought it was a good idea to expose their bigotry and go off on a racist rant. It was unprofessional and cringe-inducing.
What hobbies & interests do you have outside of the adult industry?
Penny Barber: I read a lot. Like, a lot. And I’m interested in film. I just finished Kwaidan. Other favorites include The Neon Demon, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, Blood Tea and Red String, and Mandy.
Do you use sex toys? If so which ones?
Penny Barber: Who doesn’t love the original Hitachi Magic Wand?
To date which porn scene are you most proud of?
Penny Barber: I’m very proud of my work for Vixen with directors Kayden Kross and Derek Dozer. I have a couple of projects coming out with them and I can’t wait for people to see what we created!
If you were interviewing a porn star what would you ask them?
Penny Barber: I would ask them for professional hacks and tips. Mine is always carrying four pairs of character shoes: tan open-toe, tan closed-toe, black open-toe, and black closed-toe. Then I wear sneakers. It covers all my bases.
What really turns you on?
Penny Barber: Effort. Good grooming, physical fitness, stylish clothes that fit well, a manicure, thoughtful speech and behavior, good manners–anything that tells me that the person I’m interacting with wants to impress me. I love being impressed!
Who within the adult industry, would you like to nominate to answer these questions?
Penny Barber: I was thinking maybe Little Puck, Natasha Nixx, or John Legendary, but mostly I want to see Wrex Oliver’s answers. That guy’s hilarious.
