India Summer: a MILF for every season

The porn star on why she wanted to be "murdered," how swinging led to porn, and how she took her gal-pal's anal virginity on film.

When I interviewed Marcus London about Spartacus MMXII he kept mentioning how, in the second film, he wants all the actresses to do as good a job as you did in the first one. In a behind the scenes interview, Tony De Sergio basically said the same thing. Do you have any background in acting, or do just take your acting roles more seriously than some of the younger porn starlets?

I never trained as an actress. I have no idea why they said that. I truly enjoy acting, so I do take it very seriously. When I started in this business I did mostly gonzo scenes, which is where a lot of girls start. Then I worked my way into features and I was thrilled because I really like acting. I like having a script and being able to bring it to life with my partner. I like that creative process as opposed to, "Hey, you wanna fuck?" So I think it is just that I really, really enjoy acting.


Have you directed anything?
I directed a film for Girlfriends Films called Perfect Fit, which I also wrote.


Was it a bunch of vignettes or was there a continuous plot line?
I did it within the realms of Girlfriend Films—their style of shooting sort of mini, mini series. But, it was my own series in the sense that it focused on women who were basically trying to take over the world.


How did you get on Sons of Anarchy? I'm going to take a wild guess and say that you played a stripper.
No. We played porn stars actually. My friend Jordan Kingsley called me up early on when they were filming and said, "We're looking for girls and we would like to have you. Can you do it?" The pay is never comparable to what we usually make but it's mainstream. The show is fabulous and of course I said yes. I think we ended up in three or four seasons, which was amazing. It was great being around all of those people. That led me to appearing on an episode of Dexter, which was awesome.

Did you get murdered?
I wish. The next best thing. I got fake boned by Quinn. But, I wanted to get murdered so hard. That would have been amazing ... My scene came when Quinn's woman broke up with him so he went on a crazy sex binge.


You were in a montage sex scene?
Yes, I was montaged, which was great. It was awesome just being in that atmosphere. They take it very seriously and it was a closed set because there was partial nudity. It is funny to see the different dynamic between shooting a nude scene in mainstream and porn.


Would you agree that mainstream directors do a better job of shooting sex scenes than porn directors do of shooting non-sex scenes?
I think mainstream directors do a better job of building it, and leaving more to the imagination. For us, and I'll give Marcus credit for this, I think he has come the closest to achieving that in the way he shot Spartacus. We left a lot of clothes on. The majority of the shots were soft-core, which I think is missing in a lot of porn. We do shoot soft-core versions of most of the features, but you guys don't always see those versions. It goes elsewhere. I am a big fan of '70s porn, like Sylvia Kristel in the Emmanuelle films and The Story of O. The sensuality and the building up is more important than what happens in gonzo porn.

You keep going back to the importance of the story, which I think has to do with the female patter of arousal, which explains why so many women prefer romance novels to—
I hate romance novels.


Do you like romance movies?
No. I hate them. I'm so not a girl.


Well, the theory is men are more visually aroused, so they just want to see the sex, whereas women want to know why the sex is happening.
That is a theory. For me, it doesn't work. I only like the build up and the story when I'm doing it. When I'm watching porn, I don't necessarily give a shit. I might just go straight to the sex. But, when I am doing it in that moment, I really enjoy that build up of a feature as opposed to a gonzo scene.


It seems like most porn stars either get into porn after stripping or swinging.
Maybe. My husband and I had been swinging and filming our own stuff and just exploring my sexuality. I was 22 when I met him, so I didn't have much experience. We got into swinging and it was awesome, so we thought, why not do this professionally. We would get paid for it and get to have sex with really amazing actors. Why not? Amazingly, I put it online that I was available and people called. Then I ended up in LA. It was that easy. I wasn't expecting it to happen like that, or to happen that fast.

Have you shot any memorable scenes recently?
I just shot my 100th scene with Girlfriend Films. It was also Prinzzess' first anal scene. I was the first woman to do her anally on film. It was lovely.


But you are naturally submissive right?
I am. I have had to acquire the more dominant role because that is what I get cast as.


What is it about being a bit older than the average porn star and having dark hair that projects the image of dominance?
I don't know. I guess it kind of evokes the stereotypical, hardcore dominatrix, which I am not.

Though you are dressing the part today in your rubber dress.
I did. I am just faking everyone out.


Did you have to put oil on to slip into that?
Lube. Lube is the ticket. Then you must stay lubed-up all day.


How do you get lube inside once you already have the dress on?
I lubed my skin, then you lube the outside to keep it shinny and to keep it from getting sticky. Some pretty little lady named Rachel just lubed me up. It was awesome.

India Summer: a MILF for every season

In 2012, India Summer was named the MILF/Cougar of the year at the XRCO, XBIZ, and the AVN awards. To me this is a bit disturbing as she is only a few years older than me, and to my knowledge, neither of us has kids. She must posses other qualities that made the critics overlook her youth and her lack of children before bestowing her with this honor. Or maybe she just slept with more people than the other nominees, which is probably one of the main criteria for winning such an award.

Summer grew up in possibly the most American of American towns, Des Moines, Iowa, with one of the most American of American lineages: a perfect mix of Irish, German, English, and Native American. She ran track and cross country in high school and worked as a lifeguard. After earning her bachelor's degree in education, she started swinging with her husband. This eventually led to shooting amateur sex scenes, which led to the question, "Why not do this for a living?" Summer shot her first professional porn scene in December of 2005 and jumped into the industry full-time in September of 2006. In July 2009, she signed an exclusive girl/girl contract with Girlfriends Films, and in 2011 she directed her first film for the same studio. Summer has appeared in more than 300 hardcore films throughout her career, and she has landed roles in mainstream television shows like Sons of Anarchy and Dexter. I caught up with Summer at the 2013 AVNs.
