Amber: In part, the repression of the people in my community, the freedom provided by my upbringing and my own curiosity have shaped me into who you see in my films. My first serious boyfriend was really conservative in that regard, so my experimentation initially was pretty vanilla. I mean sex in public places and in the outdoors was as adventurous as he would get. It was shortly after that relationship ended when I filmed my first amateur porn, then sold it to Homegrown videos after playing around with peer to peer camming in the early poineering days of the technology and six months after winning my first amateur photo contest, I did my first real porno in 2008 for Bellezza Video, Bellezza Video 7, which I now own with Anna Stevens. I had kissed a girl a few times and had one drunken lezzie session before that scene . . . that was my first real lesbian experience, because it was sober and more than kissing. Not many people know this, but it's true, and then we had such a good time together we started doing all kinds of modeling together and sharing hotel rooms when traveling. Anna Stevens and me did several scenes together . . . wait, let's back up. I started taking amateur pictures in late 2007, and I was winning contests on “submit your own picture” sites; I can’t remember what any of them were called. It was like every week I was earning $400 or $200 or whatever. They were just shitty little pictures I took myself with no lighting and off a grainy webcam. and randomly Somehow I ended up with somebody’s number that took foot pictures. We met in a park and it was totally clothed. I had a great day taking pictures of me barefoot in the park in the grass. And he gave me the number of someone who submitted pictures to Homegrown Video. I met that person and we talked and I thought about it and 2 weeks later, I borrowed some camera equipment and made a film. I then sold it to Homegrown Video. That was technically my entry into porn and that was at the end of 2007. But my first porno experience was for Bellezza Video in 2008. It was up in the Northwest and it was with Anna Stevens. She then became my modeling buddy and we did a lot of arts photography together and softcore stuff. Her and I did a shoot in Arizona for First Time Video Girls. That was my first time ever on a plane. first time I ever got a speeding ticket after flying back to PDX. That was amazing. Natural lighting, no light stands in your face glaring you out, it was totally do-your-thing-and-we’re-going-to-document-it. Be free and do your own thing and we even got chased off by the security guards. We got a little crazy and that was in March 2008. I was going to college the whole time. I graduated technically in 2012, but then I had to take care of some internship requirements for another year, and then I was taking care of my ma. Why I haven’t shot boy/girl (except for stuff that I shot for my very own self and decided to share it with the world) is that I was in college and could only leave at spring break or during Christmas. If you had as big of an ambition as I had at the time, you actually have homework that you have to do during that break time. I didn’t have a lot of time to do ‘go sees’ or whatever, but I knew Dan O’Connell from Girlfriends Films and I had an email for someone at Sweetheart Video and I would tell them that I was taking a break during spring break and I would ask them if they wanted to set me up with any cute girls. Haha. They would book all my time and a couple of things that are out that are not girl/girl up until just very recently, another model referred me or it was a content trade and it was sold. Now, I’m with an agency and I’m totally doing boy/girl.
I love thinking about the audience watching. Super turned on! Oh my God! Something’s different about me, I guess. I just really love the thought of people out there stroking it to me. It didn’t stop at that first Homegrown Video, I shot a couple. I think six altogether. One was Anna after I met her on the porno set. So I wasn’t nervous at all with those because it was people I knew. I really got turned on by that. When I made my first one and made money from it, I started thinking, ‘Oh my God! Sometime this is going to be on a satellite and it’s going to be beamed into somebody’s living room! A lot more people are going to watch this.’ I had just thought it’d be a one-time thing that I do and it’ll be drowned in a waterfall mountain of porn that’s created every single day. I didn’t think that it would affect me very much until I had that thought and it turned me on so much so I filmed one more. And that turned into six until I filmed that real porno with Anna.
JJ: That's an interesting way to getting yourself into the industry and it's great to hear how much you love the work.
What's the best thing about the industry?
Amber: VIP events, beautiful people, the mind opening that has transpired since I started talking with others about their sexuality, and fantasies. Gotta tell you- since I hear all of your secret fantasies, most of ya'll are hypocrites in your daily life. Stop being so judgmental of yourself and others. "I love being able to fulfill sexual fantasies in a safe environment and lead a a life with more freedom. I love getting to decide when to work and how to work. I love that I can do more painting and drawing and outdoor activities. Also when I started in sharing my nude pics and doing porn, I was in the worst part of histiocytosis which is a super rare lung disease which I have since recovered from within my time in the industry. I never told any one in the industry except for when a collapsed lung due to tumors in my lung delayed my trip to Arizona to shoot FirstTimeVideoGirls.com FTVgirls by a month because if the air pressure changes in the plane while you are recovering from a collapsed lung it can crush your heart. So luckily they wanted us badly enough to reschedule—that was an intensely sexual day! And beyond that as I was battling the condition, it was really amazingly healing to be able to think of myself as sexually desirable, beautiful, and alive. I love what it has done for how I view women and relationships as well. I love being able to be honest with my desires and non judgmental about OTHER PEOPLE'S desires. I love the people I have gotten to know on a personal level and I love the fleeting friendships that last hours.
JJ: The adult industry gives so much to people within it if they're willing to be open to it. I don't think enough people outside of the industry realise how much it gives to the girls.
What's the worst thing about the industry?
Amber: The worst things in the industry are fighting the evangelistic protesters, when a phlebotomist can't get a good blood draw, fake people and nefarious business propositions,
JJ: There is nothing worse than not getting a good blood draw. It drives me insane. Evangelistic protesters unfortunately are too closed minded to accept the adult industry is positive thing.
What's the funniest thing to happen whilst working?
Amber: First real porn I got queefed on, and the the girl was mortified. I had never had that happen to me either but I wanted her to feel comfortable and be able to continue and laugh about how weird our bodies really are. ummmm maybe that's not funny. Anyway, we laugh a lot on set but you sometimes just have to be there.
JJ: That's funny but it's something that happens and it's good that you made the other person feel comfortable about it afterwards.
What are you doing now work wise?
Amber: Well I'm about to move to LA in the spring so I hope to work with a ton more companies. I've been gaining massive progress with my fitness routine and might pursue some feature dancing maybe.
I am launching a reboot of http://bellezzavideo.com/ a lesbian erotic extreme close up membership site and resuming filming finally after graduation, http://goddesschase.com/ is just getting set up which is a mind fuck femdom goddess worship site.
I want More group sex/gangbangs, more boy girl, sex on stage, island sex, be in a feature, sooooo many sexy people.
JJ: You've got so many amazing things planned for the new year and people I'm sure are eager to see more content from you.
Where can people find you online?
Amber: You can find me at:
JJ: What's the best thing about sex?
Amber: It has to be teeth clenching orgasms, sheet grabbing pleasure
JJ: That couldn't be said any better. It's exactly what we all crave.
What really turns you on?
Amber: I love sexy people, swanky fun, imagination. They are all big turn ons.
JJ: The question everyone is waiting for, what's your favourite film?
Amber: Cloud Atlas...maybe...
JJ: I'm always changing my mind on my favourite film so I'm not surprised you're not 100%
What's your favourite holiday destination?
Amber: I have plans to travel the world but I live in a vacation destination.
I like the outdoors, clean, fresh, not too hot though
JJ: Living somewhere people consider a vacation destination is very lucky. I wish I did that's for sure.
Tell me one thing about yourself that people would never know by looking at you
Amber: I'm timeless, I have two Undergraduate degrees and a Masters degree, I longboard, I rock climb.
JJ: Wow that's very impressive indeed. And I can see now you're a true outdoors person.
What's been your biggest achievement in life or work?
Amber: Well, like I mentioned earlier, I was nominated for an AVN Award, and I was on the cover of a nominated DVD and in several projects that have gained recognition.
JJ: All things to be very proud of. They are great achievements to have under your belt.
What's the most challenging thing you've overcome?
Amber: Histiocytosis X, collapsed lung episodes, poverty, domestic violence, graduate school, statistics class,
JJ: That goes to show how strong you are as a person and just how resilient you are. You're an incredible woman.
What's the best thing a fan has ever done for you?
Amber: They paid for my boob augementation $8000 via myfreeimplants.com
paid for my dental work without expectations of anything in return $3000 and drew me as my cosplay character.
JJ: Wow you have some very generous fans. I can see why though as you are great at building rapport.
What's one bit of advice for anyone wanting to get into the adult industry?
Amber: I would teach her to know her own style; if she is assertive , be assertive, if she is submissive, learn her boundaries there. I would call myself a leader rather than submissive or dominant. I seduce or lead the way and can be very, very dominant. I have a split persona. I have Amber Chase the pornstar, which you all know and love, and also the Goddess AC who is an entitled Goddess, a femdom, a Princess and I’m actually pretty good with a whip. Haha —and a strap-on. The first person that I fucked with a strap-on was Chastity Lynn for Girlfriends Films. other than that Get vaccinated for pneumunoccocal bacteria, meningitis, hepatitis A and B. Try to get the Gardisil HPV series. (I couldn't tolerate it—it made my shoulder joint horribly painful for two months) as well as all other vaccinations like tetanus.
JJ: That's great advice. Always take care of your health and being true to your personality as a performer is a great way to be successful.
What do you think you'll do after you leave the industry?
Amber: I'll travel, do artwork, perhaps volunteer my educational background to non profits of municplaities.
JJ: It's great that you have an idea of what you'll do. It's also great to see you want to help other people too through volunteering. You have a big heart.
Finally, What are you looking forward to most about returning to the industry?
Amber: Well I never left the industry, ever, I have been filming my own content the whole time, I'm always been pretty limited edition for other companies until very recently, because of time constraints college placed on me, and then right after finishing my internship (a year after grad) I lost everything I had to asbestos contamination, so that was dramatic but I was still occasionally going to LA and filming my own content even during that tragic time period. before when I had little titties I pretty much mostly did girl girl and rare boy-girl pro-am content, I've only recently came back on the radar because I'm open to work with more boy girl companies. But I am excited about all the delicious possibilities being closer to the industry will provide me when I move to LA in the Spring.
JJ: Thank you so much for being with me today. It's always a pleasure to feature someone who answers honestly and in detail. I look forward to seeing more of your work in 2017.
