I’m Monica Mayhem. I’m 5’5″, blue eyes, blonde hair, 29, 34D-24-34. Originally from Australia, born in Brisbane, Queensland. Half Australian and half Welsh. I’ve shot over 400 adult films and magazines, won quite a few industry awards, hosted 2 radio shows and have appeared in numerous mainstream TV shows and movies, most recently “Sex and The City”. I also have an exclusive contract with Pipedream Products, with my signature line of toys “The Saucy Aussie” collection.
How did you first get into the adult industry?
I used to work in financial markets/futures trading in Sydney, Australia. I then traveled to Europe and moved to London and worked in an IPE brokerage (International Petroleum Exchange). I got sick of that world, I started dancing at the newly opened Spearmint Rhino on Tottenham Court Road. I also did a couple of softcore photo/video shoots. One night, at the club, I met one of the owners of the Rhino, and I was drunk and dared him to fly me back to the states with him that same night. Four hours later we were headed to Texas. A couple of days after that I went to LA. A few days later I met an agent, who talked me into doing hardcore scenes, and the rest is history!
How long have you been in the industry?
I’ve been in the industry over 7 years and have performed in over 400 XXX films and magazines.
You have been in the industry for a while now, is there anyone you haven’t worked with yet that you are dying to?
I always wanted to work with Carmen Luvana. I think she’s smokin’ hot, but I think she is no longer in the biz. I think I’ve worked with every guy I’ve wanted to work with. Couldn’t give you a favorite though. There’s quite a few that I like.
You also do feature dancing. Which do you prefer, featuring or performing in the movies?
I like to mix it up a little between featuring and performing, so I don’t get burnt out on either. I love doing both, so I really couldn’t say what I like doing better.
I was 14, in Brisbane, outside someone’s front yard in the outback, after a bush party!
How would you like to see your careers progress in the future?
Well, I made the mistake of disappearing a lot back when my name was really big. I guess I just couldn’t handle everything at the time. I was having a lot of problems back then. So now I’m trying to pick up the pieces of my life and get more involved in my career, but I’m also pursuing music, that is my number one passion since I was born, however, I only had the confidence to start pursuing it within the last few years. It doesn’t happen overnight, believe me, trying to get good musicians to work with has been the main struggle, especially in this town. I have good people and good contacts now, so things are going great. We have a myspace profile with 5 songs up right now, www.myspace.com/sweetavenge. That is the name of the band. Just demo tracks right now, but still sound great. I write all the lyrics and melodies and my guitarist does the music and engineering. My goal is to finish this album, we’re up to song number 6, 6 more to go, and go on tour! That is my dream.
Does your friends and family know that you are in the industry and do they support your decision?
They do know, and my friends support me, but not my family. Except for my brother, he is cool with everything.
What sort of things were you interested in when you were younger?
Singing, dancing, acting, modeling and sports, mostly kick-boxing and surfing
What personality trait or traits would your friends say best described you as a young girl? Also please explain your answer.
I was very rebellious, I had a rough upbringing with an abusive alcoholic mother, she was very cold, which in turn, made me very hard to get to know. I had no self-esteem, was shy around new people and basically thought the whole world was against me. I used to get into so many fights when I was younger, but I was always crazy and willing to try new things, I’d do anything once!
Well, I’m always shooting new movies for different companies. The most special event coming up is my 30th birthday on march 14! But I’m not sure if I’m having a big party yet. The other big event is the re-launch of my new website www.monicamayhem.com. I’ve changed webmasters, so it’s going to be bigger and better than ever, and my focus is going to be primarily on my site this year. Constant new updates of content, video and stills. Plus, of course, 7 years worth of content to go on there. A whole new design which will make the site more personal for the fans to interact with me. I’m going to have complete control and access to everything. I’ll be doing live chats regularly, and updating my diary to give an insight of my personal life and all the crazy things I get up to, including stories from shoots and dance gigs etc. Also, fans will be able to purchase pretty much anything from me, including autographed movies, and clothing/lingerie etc, with a signed photo or DVD, if worn in the movie. There will also be a message board, so fans can give feedback and request to see certain things on the site that aren’t up there, and I will of course do my best to make all their fantasies cum true!
