Well, I am a pornographic actress that started in the industry in 1999. I retired in 2005 but recently did a comeback scene for Brazzers in August 2013.
What prompted you to join the adult industry?
I had come out to California just to visit and I didn’t have all the money in the world so my friend and I started looking for a job and I responded to an ad that ended up being a World Modeling ad, so I just went with it.
You left the industry back in 2005. Why did you initially leave and what made you decide to come back?
I initially left because of the shitty contract I was in. It was so awful. I think I just needed a break from it and all the drama that was going around at the time associated with that particular contract. They had people with old tests showing up on set or red bumps on their privates claiming it was razor burn but it looked more like herpes to me and there was no way in Hell I would ever go there!
How is the comeback coming by the way?
It’s going. I just have to make the best choices and decisions with bookings considering all the moratoriums that have going on this past year. Just because I desire a successful comeback doesn’t mean that I will take everything offered to me. If I took everything offered and ended up smack dab in the middle of a moratorium with a disease, it wouldn’t have been a successful comeback after all.
You are working on creating a new site as well, ILoveGauge.com. What can your fans expect to see once the site is up and running?
I have hired several people to redo ILoveGauge.com and every single time, they flake out, disappear or don’t answer my calls. Webmasters and builders are so on my shit list right now! I’ve actually had people refer me to people who have done amazing sites; I just don’t understand what the problem is. It’s 2014, you would think it would be real simple. I already have all my content and tons of new pics and videos to post with the new site, it’s just the problem of finding someone who is reliable, trustworthy and not an idiot.
There is something I have been wondering about for a long time about you. How and why did you decide on the name Gauge?
I had danced my way to California and I show up at a club where there was already a girl that went by the name I always went by so they named me something else really quickly before I got up on stage, something like “Princess” or “Precious” or some bullshit like that… Anyhow, I never connected with that name and a few days later I came in and was so pissy, I’m sure they made me come in on my day off or something that I was bitching about not wanting that name and how I thought it was bullshit. So the manager said, “Well aren’t you a 12-gauge shot gun today?” And I said, “That’s perfect, Gauge will be my name!” I had actually planned on changing it once I had entered into the biz but I already had a fan base from dancing. I would be in San Diego and a fan from Memphis would come see me, so I just kept it.
What would you say is your favorite scene that you have shot is so far?
I have a lot of scenes that I enjoyed shooting and a lot of companies! I’ve always loved shooting for Jules Jordan. One reason is because my fans love any Jules Jordan videos I’ve been in. Second reason is because he’s a pretty cool guy and we’ve always gotten along really well! I’ve also enjoyed shooting for all the top companies such as Wicked and New Sensations and Vivid. There’s a reason why they are still here and being top companies because they know what they’re doing. Basically all the companies that I didn’t enjoy shooting for are gone now but that’s no big surprise.
What advice would you give someone who was thinking about getting in the adult industry?
Unfortunately, I don’t think I could help with this question. Upon coming back into the industry this past year I’ve got a good dose of reality check of how much it has changed since I had left and I’m still learning the new protocols of the studios. I wish I had a true and honest answer for you but I just don’t have one right now for this question. Sorry.
Who are some of the people that you really want to work with but haven’t as of yet?
You know, there are some really sexy girls in the biz right now that I would love to sink my claws into like Riley Reid, Tara Lynn Foxx, Christy Mack and some others. As far as guys, I don’t keep up with them as much mainly because if I have a boy/girl scene, my fans will love it regardless. But any girl/girl or girl/girl/boy scene I do my fans eat it up. Kind of like mine and Aurora Snow’s videos or photo shoots, they love it.
Are there any acts that you haven’t performed yet that you are thinking of maybe doing this time around?
Well, I’ve already done my anal handstand. I’m not sure if I would be into all the “shock porn” but I really just want quality and memorable scenes/movies. If that path brings something new, I’m never opposed to something new!
I really enjoy traveling. I also do a lot of volunteer work, until I get recognized but that could just be because I’m in the Bible Belt, I love cooking, doing photography and editing. I also had gone to school in Burbank for makeup and special FX. I’m more into doing SFX because it allows me to be more creative.
Are there any projects or special events coming up that you would like to promote, if so please do so?
Besides just getting back from presenting an award for XBIZ with the beautiful Missy Martinez, I should be on Ginger Lynn’s show “Blame It On Ginger” sometime in late February. The date hasn’t been set yet but I always post everything on Twitter @gaugepornstar!
