SexHerald: How did you get started in porn?
CJ Wright: A friend of mine met [former porn performer] Darren James at a gym. At the time, I didnít really think about being in porn. So Darren told my friend that it would be a good option if he gave it a try. Through my friend, he met Darren, and then he met with Marc Anthony. Then through Marc I met up with other people. It all happened so fast in like a two-month period. I got my first official chance when a guy didnít show up and they had to reschedule the scene. Marc just said, ďGive it a shot.Ē So I did. This was in late 2006, early 2007.
SH: Were you a fan of porn before entering the business?
Wright: I was but I was more a fan of website-type porn. One of my favorite websites was ButtJungle.com. It was actually a BBW website. [laughs] That was one of my favorite websites at the time. I would always just go back and view it. Iíve always been a fan of porn. I guess from a consumer standpoint, Iím a young guy, single, and who doesnít love porn?
SH: What goals did you have when you entered the business and realized you wanted to pursue performing in porn full time?
Wright: Initially, when I first got in, I viewed it as a young man who can get to mess around with chicks. But after the first two months, I started a chart of guys in the industry. I focused first on the black performers, people who I was closest too. I kind of sized them up and thought from what I saw, how many of these guys are really taking this seriously and how many of these guys are taking care of their bodies? How many of these guys are getting rest and not drinking, not smoking? Who is really trying to rise to a level of ownership, building a brand? So when I saw that, this is my exact thought: ďI want to do porn but with an Usher-type brand.Ē
Usher is mainstream and everyone loves him. He can do no wrong and whatever he puts his hands on becomes successful. I wanted to add a different type of vibe to it. My goal early on was to learn. And as I started to meet more people, especially people who have been in the industry for a while, I was always asking them questions and I was always showing my true interest. Whatever they had to say my ears were wide open. Iím listening. Initially, it wasnít about my BBW stuff; initially, it was about getting CJ Wright through the door. Build a good reputation of being on time, always having your test with you, always being respectful, always understanding that this is someoneís money and someoneís time, and someoneís investment. So, treat that accordingly. I noticed quickly that a lot of directors talked about that. They talked about me being punctual, and me being on time and always having my paperwork. They talked about that more than my actual performance. That got me jobs more than me doing good scenes. With that, itís always been one step at a time. I always wanted to brand my name among directors first so that way I can always be on everyoneís list.
SH: Are you comfortable with the title King of the BBWs?
Wright: I apply a lot of things that I go through in life to how I live my porn life. Not saying that I live a porn life because I never party, I never go out and I never drink. But just the way I conduct myself when porn is involved, I apply my home lifestyle to porn. I make better decisions. So with that title, I definitely wonít turn it down. If the people want to give me that title, then Iím definitely going to take it. And Iíll take it with comfort because I really do care about what I do. My BBW product, I care a lot. Not in a way thatís arrogant but itís just I always want to see the best for the chick. I always want to see the best for the young lady. I always want to see her at her highest level. In my videos itís always about the girl because to me, Iím the one whoís about to perform with her. So I want it to be all about her. I want to see all her skin, all her flesh, all her movements. Thatís what gets me going. Thatís my fantasy and thatís what gets me up.
SH: We both love BBWs, especially seeing their bodies in motion. Tell me how important the tease is for you.
Wright: Hereís where I get pride through; the tease to me is actually like an identity of that young lady. The tease to me, everything from the music, her outfit, her hair, her charisma, they can never do anything wrong if it comes from them and if it comes from their heart. It cannot be wrong. The tease to me is what separates the good and the bad. Itís what separates Wicked and Vivid from Black Market. It just makes it so precise and so superior for a tease to be so glamorous and sexy. If a chick can pull you in with her tease, itís so important.
SH: Jules Jordan is someone who also loves to focus in on the girl and do a long tease sequence. Is he an influence on how you do your tease sequences?
Wright: Itís funny, but no. Believe it or not, when I reference Jules Jordan or Wicked and Vivid, what Iím saying really is how much respect they have from fans in the industry. People know that itís going to be quality stuff. So when I reference those guys, my biggest thing when I started doing BBW was that I was going to put this together and Iím going to brand this. I went through so many companies just to look at their stuff, and so many companies that shoot BBW product only shoot it with a quick buck mentality. But what Wicked, Vivid, Digital Playground, the way they treat their girls on camera and the way they display their girls, you would think these girls are like big-time Hollywood stars. With me, thatís how I want to learn to display my chick. I want to display my chick like that.
SH: In the past, when it was mainly the smaller studios that produced BBW stuff, often was mediocre at best. Whatís your take on some of the BBW stuff that was out there before?
Wright: I remember the day I turned 18, I walked into an adult store looking for BBW porn and I was so fucking disappointed. I had to settle for what they had. I look at all their stuff and I never knock anyoneís hustle because only they know the system and the formula for their own product. If theyíre putting it out every single month that means somebodyís buying it. Iím not saying my stuff is right or their stuff is right. Iím just saying my path is different. For the fans that enjoy my product, I appreciate it. For the fans that enjoy their product, I say more power to them.
SH: So, itís clear youíve always been into BBWs.
Wright: Definitely. I know how society might see them. You canít really beat society. Society, once you have a certain outlook, it just is what it is because of society. So to me, I donít even see a BBW. I donít see a title. I just see a woman Iím attracted to. I donít even see size. I just see a hot chick; I want to get with her. I just go for it. My whole life has pretty much been like that. When people ask me how long have I been into big chicks, I say to them how long have they been into skinny chicks. Iíve been liking them as long as I knew what it meant to like a woman.
SH: Studios like West Coast and Evasive Angles that have BBW lines . . . are there things they do in their lines you do or donít do in your movies?
Wright: I do anything to be as opposite from them. Anything. Let me word this carefully because I donít want to offend anyone, but Iíll look at some of the stuff they put out and Iíll look at the way they put it out, and while I know there are other people that like it, thatís just not how I plan on doing it. Iím sure they look at other products and say that theyíre not doing it that way.
SH: What are your goals with CJWrightXXX.com?
Wright: I want people to say that when CJ Wright is in that scene, no matter who the chick is, but especially with my BBW women, that they know heís going to give it his all. Iíll never try to cheat the fans out of their money. Iíll always give them something for their money. Not so much because I feel that I have to but because I really just love plus-size women and I love having sex with them. It comes out on camera. What Iím striving for is for the fanís trust. Itís important for someone to say, ďCJ Wrightís name on it, I want to buy it because I know his DVDs are good, his quality is good.Ē I donít just want to be a name; I really want to be a brand. Like if it came from CJ Wright itís got to be good.
SH: Whatís your outlook on the future of BBW porn? Will it go further in the porn mainstream or remain a niche? Will we ever see a BBW in a Vivid or Digital Playground movie?
Wright: You probably wonít ever see a BBW in a Vivid movie but chances are you wonít ever see CJ Wright in a Vivid movie. Thatís just the truth and thatís just how Vivid rolls. No matter who you are, theyíre not feeling you, it is what it is.
The funny thing is, to us and the people in our community, we donít even see specialty or a genre. We donít see a BBW party. To us, itís a regular thing. As a genre, BBW as a whole, itís going to be a long road. Iím not going to bullshit you. And the reason why is because there are not enough people shooting the best quality content that they can. There are only a handful of people doing it. More importantly, not every girl whoís overweight is a BBW. Just like there are skinny chicks that are not attractive. Everybody might not think Iím attractive. Or they might not have the attitude to make it. To me thatís really important. If you have the attitude to carry that shit over, to command that audience, thatís whatís important on an overall scale. I think itís going to take people like me to knock down these doors. Itís going to take some time but it can be done.
SH: Your contract girl, Victoria Secret. Why did you make her your first contract girl and whatís so special about her?
Wright: She hasnít done a super-huge amount of work. Sheís done three movies for me and with the ideas that I have and her willingness to want to try things, and more importantly she trusts me to not put her in positions that will make her look stupid. Sheís liked by everybody, even guys who are not into BBWs; they always hit me up about her. Whatever emails I get, a big portion of those emails are about her. I felt that a partnership wouldnít be bad at all. At the very least, we didnít have anything to lose. Sheís local so that helps me out a lot. Iím cool with her as a person, so it all just came together. I have her working once a month but I want to take that whole month to plan out that one scene and make that scene the best.
SH: Sexually, does she have any special talents?
Wright: [laughs] Overall, she just gives a good scene. I think the reason she does good scenes is because this is natural for her. She really enjoys having sex. She can be dominant, submissive, she likes to take control, and sometimes she likes to be told what to do. It depends on the atmosphere of that day. She loses herself, gets into it and just has fun; itís all fun and itís all sexy. I think a lot of people lover her body type. The way she carries herself, she just has it. And sheís a beautiful girl. Her face is extremely pretty. On camera, she just has a young spirit. She doesnít hurry up to get the scene over with. She really comes to enjoy herself. That shows on camera and it shows in her scenes.
SH: In my opinion, you canít have a discussion about BBWs in porn without mentioning April Flores, who I think is the top BBW in the business. How do you feel about her?
Wright: April is a big name because she knows how to market herself. I think sheís another person who will definitely put BBWs in the mainstream. She does a lot of exhibits, she just recently became the first BBW to have her pussy molded, and thatís a big step for BBWs in the community. And she has a great support system. Considering sheís done less than five boy/girl scenes total, I would say she is the top BBW in porn. She reigns supreme because everyone respects her, period. I respect her too, a lot.
SH: You donít see a lot of BBW lesbian stuff. Is that something youíll consider doing soon?
Wright: Recently, with kind of a small twist, I filmed a scene recently with the BBWs wrestling. Real, full-blown wrestling shoes, socks, ear guards, all that. The focus of that scene wasnít for them to wrestle but to wrestle with a solid sexual tension. I filmed the scene with three different cameras at one time to get the best possible angles. I got mixed reviews but on an overall scale, everyone said that it was really hot because it was tense and it was sexy. Itís hard but itís still sexy. So with that, I am going into a lot more girl/girl action because it turns me on. I do what turns me on, so Iíll try it.
SH: What does the future hold for you?
Wright: For me, I really do feel thereís only one direction to go. I never see myself going backwards. I donít see myself making the same mistakes over and over again. Itís a constant process to just learn more and more. A lot of people ask me why I concentrate so much on BBW porn. Itís such a small genre of porn compared to the overall industry. To me, thatís OK because I can master this genre and be OK here because this is what I like and what I enjoy. I want my company, CJ Wright, to be the one and only go to person. Go to CJ Wright the same way people go to Jules Jordan. As far as the future, I just want people to respect me as that.
