Fresh Faces: Quinn Wilde

LOS ANGELES—Quinn Wilde surprised everyone in her first anal scene this year.

She performed so well with three-time AVN Male Performer of the Year Mick Blue for Tushy that she received an immediate invite to return.

“They liked it so much that they brought me back the next day for Vixen,” Wilde says of Greg Lansky’s AVN Award-winning sister site.

“It’s nice to be able to kill the scene so well that they bring you back—and not only do they bring you back, they bring you back the next day. They were blown away.”

The 21-year-old native of Denver is exceeding expectations on a regular basis as she makes the rounds in Porn Valley, continuing to rack up high-profile credits just a year into her adult industry career.

The former Hooters girl and stripper says her throw-down with Blue could not have gone smoother.

“I was blessed and got with one of the best male performers in the industry,” Wilde says. “He was like, ‘You tell me what you need.’ He was super nice and we were out of there early. I was definitely lucky to have him as my first anal partner on film. It wasn’t a disaster.”

The next day for Vixen wasn’t a bad time either—not when she saw porn heartthrob Jean Val Jean walk onto the set.

“He’s a really good-looking guy, really sweet,” she recalls.   

Wilde was no stranger to adult-oriented work before porn—she had been webcamming in Denver in addition to dancing at several gentlemen’s clubs around town when she was scouted by an agent in Florida who saw her on cam. But at first she wasn’t sure.

“It’s one thing to dance on the pole and go home and no one knows and it’s another thing to physically be in front of a camera and shoot,” Wilde says. “So I was like I don’t know, maybe. I thought it over and I was doing modeling back at home and I told one of my photographers who was a really good friend of mine. He was like, ‘Dude, I could see you doing porn. Not trying to offend you.’ But he was like, ‘I could really see you doing it and doing really well at it.’

“… I feel like we regret the things in life that we don’t do. I don’t regret anything before in my life; I would regret not trying. So that was what happened, [the agent] flew me out and I was nervous because I had never even gotten on a plane since I was 9 when I went out to Japan because I have family out there.”

She made her hardcore debut in August 2016 in Florida, shooting for Reality Kings’ notorious CumFiesta site—another experience that turned out to be easier than she thought.

“I didn’t know what was going to happen because the only time I had sex was in the privacy of my own place with someone I knew so it was really different,” Wilde says. “They kind of gave me the rundown and the paperwork and I was like, ‘I’m really going to do this, I’m going to shoot porn.’ So I shot it and I started picking up more work when I was out in Florida. I shot for Mofos and Naughty America and Brazzers.”

Wilde is no longer working with the agent who scouted her, signing with East Coast Talent for representation a week before AVN in January—and her stock has been rising with each trip to LA.

At press time she had almost 50 credits on her resume, including recent scenes for blue-chip studios such as PureTaboo, BAM Visions, New Sensations, Digital Playground, Girlfriends Films and Dark X.

She says one of her best performances so far was for Bree Mills’ dark, forbidden fantasy site, PureTaboo, where she was involved in an intense, incest-themed scenario with Seth Gamble. 

“It was crazy because we both were supposed to cry,” Wilde recalls. “I was like OK let’s see if I can make myself cry, because I was always really interested in acting. Porn sometimes is acting and sometimes it’s more of a funny line or a funny character and then straight down to sex—very gonzo style. 

“So it was cool to be able to experience acting in adult. We were supposed to cry but I started bawling and we did so well that she believed it and Bree started crying behind the cameras. I could see her wiping her tears. That’s so awesome to be able to bring that, to be able to lose myself in a character.

“It was one of the scenes that I can’t wait to see and I really hope to shoot with them again. The plot lines are very fucked up.”

In Wilde’s scene—which has yet to be released—she finds out from her estranged mother that she is not really related to her brother (Gamble), with whom she was having sex before he went to jail.

“He’s getting out of prison and I keep telling him about this letter my mom wrote,” Wilde explains. “Right after I have sex I start crying because I’m supposed to. He starts crying and then I actually did start crying because something about it pushed all my emotions out and I was able to let go.”

Wilde maintains a healthy separation between her porn life and private life, looking forward to her time at home between shoots. When’s she in Denver she attends college, working toward her associate’s degree in business and marketing; her secondary focus is to become a dental assistant.

“I have a normal job when I’m home, too—they know—it’s a strip club, but I’m not stripping anymore. I’m waitressing and bartending,” Wilde says. “I’m able to keep a balance in my life and that’s how I wanted it.

“I like to go to Denver and do my normal stuff and go to school and then get on a flight and turn into Quinn Wilde and be this porn girl and a freak and then be able to fly home and be with my family. Because even though I’m in porn I’m still very close with my family.”

Wilde continues, “That’s a big thing I’ve noticed in porn is some girls can’t go home. I always think about how I’m truly blessed to be able to disconnect. Plus when you do that, I never get sick of porn either. Every time I come out here it’s exciting and it feels like the first time I started and I don’t want to get sick of it. I know one day I’m going to have to walk away from it but I don’t want to get tired of it at the same time.”

Wilde says her mother knows she’s doing porn.

“I told her. She was like, ‘I think I already know,’ because my mom knows me really well, it scares me. She was like, ‘You’re doing porn, aren’t you?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, how’d you know?’ She said, ‘Your demeanor, just the way you act. You’re my kid, I kind of have a feeling as to what you’re doing.’

“I reassured her that I’m safe and I’m comfortable and I’m not doing drugs or anything like that. I don’t have to get high in order to be able to do it and I’m not getting pimped out. I kind of already have that trust with my mom. She was like, ‘As long as you’re able to go to school and be able to leave school without debt and be able to live your life and have fun I love you no matter what. I’m not going to disown you.’ So it’s really nice to have my mom be supportive.

“I mean it’s awkward—I can’t sit here and talk to her about what I did in porn or how many dicks I sucked. It’s always going to be a little awkward. My friends know and they think it’s the coolest thing ever. They say, ’That’s awesome, I want to get into porn.’

“I tell them, ‘No, it’s not for everyone.’ You have to have a thick skin and you have to be sure of yourself. You have to be there present in the moment but also be able to say no and not get pushed into stuff.’ Everything I do is on me. I make all my decisions on my own.”

Wilde says her three years as a dancer helped ease her transition into porn.

“Because I was able to be comfortable with my body. I used to not even want to look in the mirror at myself and now I’m able to actually look at myself and be confident,” she adds. “Not cocky, but still able to be sure of who I am even though I’m 21 and still trying to figure that out right now.

“I think dancing really helped, especially because when I danced I was 18 and couldn’t drink. Every time I went to the club I was sober. I didn’t have to drink or do drugs in order to be able to dance. I told myself if I can do that I can do porn the same way.

“I don’t really care for partying. I’m 21 and I don’t really care for it because I see what it does to other people and I don’t want to lose myself.”

In addition to Hooters, Wilde has also previously worked at Tilted Kilt, Twin Peaks, Little Caesar’s and a tanning salon—her first job.

“Hooters is the gateway to stripping or porn. I never believed it,” she jokes.

Meanwhile, Wilde’s star continues to rise—she’s also in fresh scenes for Swallowed, Dogfart and PornFidelity.

“That one was cool too because I was able to have more of a personality and be this crazy girl,” says Wilde, who handcuffs herself to a bedpost in the scene. “I say, ‘I’m not going anywhere until you have sex with me.’”

In the future, Wilde says, “I really want to travel and go out of the country before I settle down and have kids.

“I would like to go back to Japan, and the UK—and Bora Bora."
