VENICE, CA — When teachers in high school are saying that you should be in porn, maybe they have noticed a pattern and are telling you something you need to listen to. It's unknown how good a listener Melina Mason was in school, but she took that advice to heart and now she is a starlet on the rise in the adult industry.

Growing up in Long Island, NY, which she calls mostly boring, she did find ways to fill her time.

“I'm capitalizing on a combination of my strengths and weaknesses,” she told interviewer Leonardo Blues this week. “I'm a pretty girl without any shame and a sex drive that always got me into trouble. Even my teachers in high school said I should go into porn. It's just who I've always been.”

By signing on with Rising Star PR she has made it clear that she wants to be taken seriously in her chosen career. She’s seeing results already, with a meaty interview on the XXX Wasteland site this week.

With her dark beauty and busty figure (34F-24-36), she was an immediate hit in Porn Valley. Producers, directors and performers were clamoring to work with her but, until recently, she held out on the guys, doing only girl/girl work. She has now broken the seal and is slowly increasing her list of things she’ll do.
