Sydney Leathers 1Well you are well known because of the Weinergate scandal from 2011. What was it like going through all that at the time and how do you reflect on it now?

Actually my scandal with Anthony was from the summer of 2013. He’s been in two sexting scandals so people often get it confused. The first one he accidentally tweeted a pic of his boner in some underwear. Nothing to do with me. But then we talked from 2012-2013 and had a lot of phone sex and exchanged nude pics.

Since then you have decided to start shooting porn, including your own title, Weiner and Me. What was the thought process behind doing a movie based on your story and how do you like how it turned out?

It just seemed like the natural progression. Everyone had already read these filthy things I had said so I figured why not act them out? I honestly love the movie. Even the skit in the beginning where there isn’t any sex, that was hilarious and so much fun to film.

You have done some other scenes since then so I am wondering how your experience in the adult film industry has been so far?

I honestly have no complaints. I go to all of the Exxxotica conventions too so I’ve made a lot of friends in the industry and everyone has been welcoming.

Sydney Leathers 2What would you say is the biggest misconception about the adult industry that most people that aren’t involved believe?

That I can just magically give some guy a porn career or something. People are always tweeting me asking me to “get them in the business.” Also that all of the girls are morons. That’s definitely not the case. Some of the brightest women I know work in the industry.

Any thoughts of creating a members site and if so, what can your fans expect to find on that site?

Yeah, I’ve been planning on doing a site where members can sign up to see exclusive scenes.

What would be your dream scene to shoot, with money not being an issue?

It would be amazing to fuck on some landmark of some kind, without getting arrested preferably.

Who would you say are your idols, either in the industry or outside the industry?

Nina Hartley is so eloquent and also very kind. I admire her a lot. And Joanna Angel too. She’s very business savvy. I love that.

Who are some of the people that you really want to work with but haven’t as of yet?

Tommy Pistol! He had a non-sex role in Weiner & Me and he just has such a great personality too. There is no way it wouldn’t be fun.

Assuming that you watch porn as well as make it, what would you say it your favorite kind to watch and why?

Sydney Leathers 3I’ve been watching a lot of anal and DPs. Mostly stuff I haven’t done yet. There’s something exciting about that and obviously it’s different from my everyday sex life.

What sort of things do you like to do when you aren’t working? Any hobbies?

I go to school for radio/TV Production so I spend a lot of time doing that right now. I cam, I make jewelry, I paint, I love my cats, I love reading, I spend a ton of time with my boyfriend.

Are there any projects or special events coming up that you would like to promote, if so please do so?

I always recommend that everyone watch Weiner & Me on
