LOS ANGELES—This year has already been exciting for Jessa Rhodes, with Best New Starlet nominations for both the AVN Awards and the XRCO Awards, as well as many new releases with top adult studios.

This month, the blond beauty is very excited about the release of The Sexual Liberation of Anna Lee, a New Sensations title directed by Jacky St. James and shot by Eddie Powell. The script, which explores rough sex and BDSM, was written by St. James, who took home awards for two of her movies at the 2014 AVN Awards Show.

"Reaching people who struggle with their own sexual freedom has been a goal of mine," St. James said this week. "Maddy O'Reilly's portrayal of Anna Lee, a woman with these same struggles, really captures the human complexity surrounding what it means to enjoy total, unabashed sexual freedom. Just because somebody isn't sexually liberated physically, doesn't mean that they aren't mentally. It's about marrying the two."

St. James cast Rhodes as the psychologist's model in The Sexual Liberation of Anna Lee.

Rhodes talked about the role and what she enjoyed about shooting for St. James. “She looks at me and Steven St. Croix having hot sex and makes mental notes to herself about what she likes sexually,” Rhodes explained. “I love shooting for Jacky and Eddie. It's always a great day on set. Jacky has been an amazing role model for me as well as other new girls in the business.”

Two other New Sensations releases this month also feature Rhodes: Doll Face 2 and Teenagers These Days.
