Jessie Andrews was born with it

February 04, 2017
Jessie Andrews can't be put in the same box as most porn stars, because she doesn't fit into just one category. The 24-year-old has a wealth of creative interests—modeling, DJing, shooting pictures, designing, etc.—and she isn't defined by any singular career. We spoke to her to learn more.

Do you find people are intimidated by you?
Guys mostly. Girls are more infatuated.
I’ve heard you now only do girl-on-girl. Do you feel more empowered by that?
I started doing girl-girl only around 2013. It gave me more time to work on other things. The most empowering thing to me is being able to do what I want when I want. The fact that I didn't have to rely on porn for money gave me that freedom.

"Life is too short not to be yourself. Don't be afraid of what someone else thinks about what you like."

Did you watch porn yourself before starting in the industry?

Any advice for girls who are scared to express their own sexuality because of society’s restraints?
Life is too short not to be yourself. Don't be afraid of what someone else thinks about what you like.

How do you deal with this crazy prude society we live in?

The company I keep is open-minded, so I don't get to see that side of society. Times are changing, people's views are evolving, there's less judgement to be had and people are not afraid to stand up for what they believe in. I do know that there's a big part of society that doesn't think like that, but I know that the more I spread my outlook on life, I can inspire and open someone's eyes to a different way of thinking.

What is the most fascinating thing you have learned about your body after going into the industry?
Bodies are always changing. Accept that early on and you open the flood gate of confidence and it allows you to be yourself.

You wear a lot of hats. Do you enjoy one more than others? If so, which one and why?

I honestly just enjoy creating. Photography, jewelry, music, acting, art, design. I'm always looking for the next thing.

Did you get into photography after modeling? Or was it the other way around?
Modeling first. I started taking photos on film in 2012 for Bagatiba, my jewelry line.

Why do you tend to only shoot women?
I mostly shoot girls for my brands because I'm for women, by women. My style has always been relaxed and voyeuristic. So I choose very effortless, easy going girls. I occasionally shoot guys, I just love people and things in their natural habitat.

What do you like to do in your free time? If you have any, that is.
I lay in the bath with a face mask on.

Does your personal style change with your many jobs?
It's hard to define my own style. I look at my Instagram and think it's a mess of everything I do. All my brands reflect a part of my personality and style. I'm a chameleon to change. It's important to adapt and recognize a trend rather than get left behind.
