From Prison Guard to Pornstar…
Dylan Ryder made some time for NudeReviews recently and we couldn’t be happier. Listen to the interview here and check out the transcript. We covered everything from video games to favorite positions. She was a pleasure to chat with and I hope we can do it again soon. And in case you are wondering, I think she digs me ;)
Nude Reviews: Hey Dylan, it’s Mack from Nude Reviews, how are you?
Dylan Ryder: Fine, good, how are you?
NR: Good, I’m glad we finally got you on the phone. How’s everything. I can imagine, busy life.
Dylan Ryder: I’m actually running behind today. I’m trying to get everything together so that I can head over to Adult Con. And I had to run by and pick up another box of DVDs right now and the FedEx guy was like, “I know you!” I’m like, “What do you mean you know me? How do you know me?”
NR: You’re a familiar face, I think a lot of guys know you.
Dylan Ryder: [laughs] Well, I put him on the spot and he’s like, “Maybe I don’t.”
NR: So, you’re out in California right now?
Dylan Ryder: Yeah, I’m going to pick a friend up and then we’re going to head over to the convention.
NR: So what have you been working on recently?
Dylan Ryder: Well, mainly…well, I shouldn’t say mainly. On my off days I like to focus on getting content done for my site since it did just launch, but there’s not a huge amount of content yet. Every time I try to schedule content trading with other talent or other directors I’ve worked with, I get booked for work.
NR: So what’s the early feedback on the website? Good so far?
Dylan Ryder: So far it’s really good. Initially Top Web Models, they like to launch what they call a fan site so that they can see the sort of feedback and responses and fans following that models have. And originally when I started, I had about 3,900 fans that were free members on my site where they could read about stuff that was going on before it actually launched.
NR: You’ve got a pretty big fan following.
Dylan Ryder: Yeah. [laughs] And it’s funny because I’m like, I’m not anything special. In my mind, I’m just me and I’m a completely down to earth normal person, so I think it’s funny.
NR: I’m pretty sure they all love you. You gotta tell us, how’d you get into the business?
Dylan Ryder: It’s funny because it’s like a two-part story. I was going to work for this company where my friend worked and in her spare time she did porn. And I asked her, how do you live off this money and she was like, “Oh no, you don’t understand. On the weekends I go to LA and I make adult movies.” I was like, “Shut up!” I didn’t believe her.
NR: A little bit of a shocker.
Dylan Ryder: And she goes, “You could totally do it.” I was like, “No, no, no.” I was shy and I hadn’t quite…blossomed yet and I said no way. Even though I was 22 at the time. But I went and did my first shoot in Florida. I want to say it was with Bang Bros. I don’t remember. A fan sent it to me saying they found my very first scene, but I want to forget everything I did when I first started. ‘Cause it all sucked, I didn’t know what I was doing.
NR: I’m gonna get some of my boys in the research department to dig it up, don’t you worry.
Dylan Ryder: No! That’s embarrassing! [laughs]
NR: And what were you doing before this?
Dylan Ryder: I used to work at a prison and I did drug and alcohol rehabilitation. And counseling. I had my six month stint in the industry and then I became a correctional officer.
NR: What was that like?
Dylan Ryder: It was fun, it was really fun. I for sure thought that was what I would retire doing, that’s what I wanted to do. I have a big, big interest in criminology and sociology and I thought for sure, okay this is really what I want to do. I loved the job, but you don’t make very much money and it’s 12-hour shifts. I’m sure you can imagine how high school it is, working with the same people half of your day…everyone talks about each other, everyone hooks up with each other. I was like, dude. That’s not me. I don’t want people to know what I do when I go home. I want to go to work, work and go home.
Dylan Ryder: What happened eventually was, a supervisor brought in a picture of me from when I was in the business and they were trying to compare…is that her? Is that her? Word got around and they told me I was a distraction, so they moved me to a different facility. So I filed a harassment charge against everybody that was trying to push me out of there because I didn’t think it was fair. And I went to work at a different prison, but after that it just wasn’t the same anymore. Everybody had something to say. I was like, what’s the point? I’m not happy anymore, so I’m done.
NR: Off to Porn Valley!
Dylan Ryder: Yeah! [laughs] That’s something that made me happy and it honestly is a great industry to be a part of. People who aren’t in our industry don’t understand, it’s hard for them to believe that it could be something fun. That you can still learn and you can develop as a person. You learn a lot about yourself, it’s not all about sex, drugs and parties.
NR: Well, we all think you made the right career choice over here. Now listen, I’ve got a couple of quick fire questions that some of your fans at NudeReview.com want to know. I guess you could call this the important stuff. Okay…does size really matter?
Dylan Ryder: Not really. I think, because I’ve been with all different types and I think it has to do with the way the guy presents himself. If he’s confident in what he’s got regardless, that can be a huge turn on. And also, how he treats you, how he pleasures you, his attention to verbal and non-verbal cues to what you like and what feels good…then I’m sure it can be just as fun as somebody who has a huge cock and all they know how to do is rip you open and they don’t know how to do anything else.
NR: Hang on a second, I’m gonna grab a pen and take some notes here! Just kidding. What’s your favorite position?
Dylan Ryder: [pauses] Um, standing. Which is hard because a lot of people are not tall enough or strong enough to support that, but standing is my favorite.
NR: What was your first time like?
Dylan Ryder: In the industry or personal?
NR: Personal, in life.
Dylan Ryder: Oh God! [laughs] This boyfriend I had in high school, he had this Cadillac. It was in the back of his Cadillac.
NR: The back of a Cadillac, I like that. Now listen, this is probably the most important part of this interview. I heard you’re pretty badass at Mario Kart. Is that true?
Dylan Ryder: [laughs] You know, I used to work at a youth center, years and years ago and that’s what we used to play. I would always challenge the kids and they’d line up and I’d play. And when Mario Kart came out on the Wii, we would play it on Wii. We have Mario Kart and Tiger Woods competitions at my house.
NR: I think I could take you.
Dylan Ryder: [laughs] It’s fun, it’s really fun.
NR: Well Dylan, I think you’re a lot of fun. Everyone here at Nude Reviews are really big fans. Anything else you want the NudeReviews.com visitors to know about you?
Dylan Ryder: Pretty much anything they want to know, they can message me at my site. I check it nightly so every night they’ll get a personal response or message from me. I pretty much answer every question.
NR: I think that’s why you have such a fan following.
Dylan Ryder: It’s important. They’re what drives this industry, otherwise I’d be out of work.
NR: Us, too! Well, I’m going to let you go to Adult Con. We really appreciate this. Maybe we can do it again sometime.
Dylan Ryder: Definitely, call me anytime!
NR: Take care, Dylan.
