Exclusive Interview with Ember Snow
Ember Snow is a rising Asian starlet who's just surpassed her one-year mark in the adult industry and is celebrating this benchmark with the upcoming release of her first anal scene. Ember has accomplished more than most newbie porn stars in her first year, appearing in dozens of new releases for top studios, self-producing her own videos, and diving into more-subversive genres like cuckolding and trans-lesbian content. Ember was nice enough to speak with HotMovies about what lessons the porn industry has taught her thus far and what her fans can expect from her in 2019. Check out our exclusive interview with Ember Snow below!
Thanks for taking the time to speak with us Ember! You've done pretty well for yourself in 2018. What do you think is the most important thing you've learned in your first year in the industry?
While I love all the shoots that I do for big companies like Brazzers, Naughty America, and Digital Playground, I've found that it is essential to be shooting your own self-produced material as much as possible. Not only do you get to control your image and allow yourself to explore fantasies and scenarios you only imagined, but from a business standpoint, those scenes (while expensive to make) will pay out larger in the long run. Plus, if you ask your fans what they want to see you do, it's a good way to indulge their fantasies as well.
You were raised in a culturally conservative Filipino household and didn't lose your virginity until later in life. How did you find yourself in the porn industry?
Being raised in that atmosphere, one that was very closed off from the real world, forced me to live out a lot of my life on the internet. I was in a long-term relationship with someone that was mostly based through online chat and that person turned me on to porn. As a result, I ended up developing a lot of fantasies and desires that I could only enjoy through watching porn online. I had been curious about doing porn for years, but figured my family would disown me. So, I wanted to be a mainstream model and actress instead. When I decided to produce my own stuff and saw how hard it was to raise the money, that's when I finally became brave enough to explore the possibilities of doing porn instead.
You've filmed girl/girl, boy/girl, group sex, and trans scenes. What are you excited to show your fans next?
I just shot my first anal scene and that will be released later this month (November). It was a lot easier than I expected, and the guy (Roman Nomar) was a lot bigger than I expected I'd have for the first time, and he fucked me harder than I expected. Still, it was a great way to break through that barrier. I'd done a lot of work with anal toys over the last year and also did a couple G/G anal scenes, so I was prepared.
I had been wanting to do a scene with a TS performer ever since I first got into the business. Same with doing a scene with two guys. This kind of incorporated the best of both worlds... or three worlds if you will! While technically it wasn't a scene with two guys, it was my first time taking two dicks simultaneously, so that was a great warm-up for the scene I eventually produced in May with two men. And it was probably the perfect way for me to introduced to the world of working with TS performers, because Lena was so open and accepting of me and what I was looking to do with the scene.
Do you plan to do more TS scenes in the future?
I have one more that just came out. It's Trans-Visions 15, directed by the legendary Joey Silvera, and the scene is with the super-sexy Chanel Santini. She and I met at AVN last January and have been dying to get together ever since. Joey shot the scene in May and it is just now coming out. I'm really proud of how it turned out. Working with a TS performer like Chanel embodies two of my favorite things: hot girls and hard cock. You can see how turned-on I am in the scene. It's very noticeable. As for any more in the future? We'll have to see. I'll take every offer on a case-by-case basis.
You're outspoken about your love of women, and your all-girl orgy in Wicked's Carnal made that apparent; so many gorgeous Asian women together at once! What was your favorite part of shooting that scene?
Exactly what you said: all those Asian women together! Tia Kai and I have played together before. She's done some cam shows with me and we made a self-produced scene together that's available on OnlyFans, ManyVids, and IWantClips. So getting to do a scene with her for a major company like Wicked and director Brad Armstrong was really a great opportunity. They other thing is, Kaylani Lei is one of my porn inspirations. I have been in love with her for years and have been wanting to work with her as well. We weren't "paired" together enough for me to say that my fantasy has been fulfilled, but it was still great to be on the same set with her and have the interactions that we had. Maybe next year she and I will do something more intimate together.
You've mentioned in previous interviews that you're more dominant than submissive. We got to see your kinky side a little in your scene for My Husband is a Cuckold Vol. 2. Do you plan to explore your Femdom side more in future scenes?
I'm hoping a lot more. I try to do it a little bit in every scene that I'm in. A lot of girls take an automatic submissive approach to sex and this gives the encounter a very male-dominant feel to it. Even from the very first day I ever had sex in real life, I wasn't like that. I like to either meet my partners halfway or try to challenge them to fuck me harder. It ends up being a very positive and fun thing, the way I feel sex was meant to be. I like doing cuckold scenes, but being overly-mean isn't really my style. I really liked that scene for She Will Cheat because it ends up looking kinda funny in the end. But yes, I'm planning on doing a lot more Femdom stuff next year and possibly even producing a series of clips as well.
2019 AVN and XBIZ award nominations should be announced any day now. If you had to nominate one of your scenes from this year for an award, which scene would it be and why?
There are a handful of scenes that I would have loved to see be nominated, but if I had to pick one it would be "The Direct Approach" for Dark X, which was my first IR scene. When I got into the business and the topic of IR came up, I had very definite ideas on how I wanted it to go. I wanted my character to be the aggressive one. I wanted the scene to not be about the fact that the guy was African-American. And while the scene is very hot and intense, I also wanted it to have a sensual feel. I also wanted Isiah Maxwell to be my first. James Avalon captured all of that brilliantly and made a scene that I am very proud of. Regardless of the guy's race, the scene is amazing on any level and that is the kind of stuff I aspire to make in my career.
With a year in the industry under your belt, what are you hoping to achieve with your career now that you've established yourself?
Actually, to be honest, I still feel like I have a long way to go. I really look up to girls like Gina Valentina, Jill Kassidy, Riley Reid, and Mia Malkova. All of them are so far ahead of me in this business and I really just want to catch up. I just recently worked with Eliza Ibarra. I started in February of 2017 and she started in March of this year and I feel like she's so much further ahead of me in this business. So, there's no resting on my laurels here. I do still have things I need/want to do. While I have self-produced two scenes that involved me having sex with two men, I still haven't shot a pro scene with more than one guy (the Asian Orgy video I did for Quasar and Third Degree featured four men, but I never interacted with them simultaneously, just one-on-one). I do want to do a blow-bang, a gangbang, and eventually a triple-penetration (ass, pussy, mouth), but right now I think the studios think I'm too timid. I want to prove them wrong!
What do you like to do when you're not filming?
Rest? LOL! Camming is actually my number-one source of income, so I do a lot of that. When I'm not doing that, I'm relaxing, watching TV shows or movies, playing videogames, or going out to eat at some of my favorite restaurants. I'm also working on developing my first mainstream feature for next year, so I take a lot of potential investor meetings as well. Thing is, most of them turn out to be guys who just want to meet and have sex with me, so that becomes lame really quick.
