The stunningly beautiful Evelyn Lin was gracious enough to submit to an interview with VideoBox. Evelyn is featured on the site in approximately a dozen titles and is one of my very favorite performers. All of Evelyn’s scenes are worth checking out, but I would especially recommend Asian Poke Holes #2 scene 5, Asian Slut Invasion #4 scene 4, Big Dicks Little Asians #2 scene 1, Sakura Tales #12 scene 5, Teen Machine scene 2, Teens In Tight Jeans #2 scene 5, Virgins of the Screen #1 scene 5, and Young Asian POV scene 1. If you enjoy girl-girl action, add Asian Slut Invasion #2 scene 3. If you like sex with Yeti’s, add The Babysitter #25 scene 4. If you desire oral only activity, add Paste My Face #5 scene 10. If you …. oh hell, just watch them all.
And please don’t forget to visit Evelyn at her website.
rope: Hello Evelyn, thank you so much for speaking with us. I understand you were born in the Hunan Province of China, and moved to Southern California at the age of four. Do you still have family back home in China? Have you returned for any visits thus far, or do you hope to do so in the future?
Evelyn Lin: The majority of my family still lives in China so I do visit, usually once every four years. Mostly I go back with my parents and just follow along with whatever they have planned, but I’m kind of thinking of heading back to China this year with a few friends just to explore now that I’m all grown up. I can’t exactly check out the night life with Grandpa and Grandma, haha.
rope: Consulting my handy Chinese Zodiac, I notice you were born in the Year of the Rabbit. Individuals born under this sign are projected to be gracious, kind, sensitive, cautious, compassionate, flexible, astute, artistic, and a good friend. Conversely, they are prone to be moody, detached, superficial, and opportunistic. Do you feel your personality matches up with the predicted traits?
Note to readers: I’ve already mentally checkmarked graciousness (see my opening comments) and flexibility (watch any of Evelyn’s scenes, maybe not Vanessa Lane flexibility, but certainly good enough to pass the Zodiac test).
Evelyn Lin: Well, here’s the thing—I’m also a Leo. Leos are characterized as fiery leaders who are headstrong and get what they want. It’s a bit of a contradiction to the gentle Rabbit. I guess I’m a little bit of both. I’m always a little shy when I meet people for the first time. On set, directors will always note that I’m not as instantly chatty as other girls but I just take a little time to warm up to people. And just because I’m not actively participating in a conversation doesn’t always mean I’m detached. I simply like to listen and get a feel for people first. When I’ve been on set for a bit, I start to converse with everyone and then, when the camera goes on—bam, the Leo comes out, bold and sexed-up. But hey, I’m definitely Rabbit nice!
rope: Has the current economic downturn affected the porn industry? Penny Flame recently stated on her blog that girls who were filming fifteen to thirty scenes a month, are no longer finding work. According to Penny, many have resorted to escorting in an effort to pay the bills. Has your workload been affected?
Evelyn Lin: I’ve heard a lot of directors say that porn has always managed to remain unaffected through past economic slumps but this time, we’re really taking a hit. I definitely have to agree with them. With the current economic situation and all the free porn that’s floating around online (which I don’t support by the way!), people just aren’t buying porn DVDs as much and thus companies that shoot mostly DVDs aren’t making as many as they used to. The majority of shoots I’ve been on this year were for internet only. I haven’t done any escorting or privates but I’ve definitely expanded my website store to include things such as video shout outs (with a little strip tease) and custom videos where you can have me act out your own fantasy.
rope: Your breasts are perfect. Please tell your loyal fans at VideoBox, you have no intention of undergoing breast enhancement surgery. This should be a “no-brainer,” but I’ve seen some strange decisions made in this area.
Evelyn Lin: I’ve definitely wished for bigger breasts in the past, especially having a close friend with natural D’s. However, from age 18 to now, my breasts have definitely gotten bigger. I admit, I was a little sad to throw out all my sexy A cup bras and having to buy all new B cups but I LOVE my breasts so don’t worry! The only elective surgery I probably would ever get is Lasik (I’m so blind without my contacts!)
rope: Current licensing restrictions prevent VideoBox from adding Asian Fever #34 to the site. The DVD is from Hustler, and features a M/F/F threesome with yourself, Tia Tanaka, and Marco Banderas. I was fortunate enough to view this scene just the other day. I will not ask you the most obvious question that comes to mind (which is of course, how many days running did Marco have to blow Larry Flynt to get cast in this dream scene). Instead, let me ask you the following question. When performing a M/F/F threesome with Tia or another equally hot girl, does a sense of competitiveness take hold? In other words, do you each try to out-perform one another? Judging by this scorcher of a scene, my guess is yes!
Evelyn Lin: Of course there’s always a little competitiveness but I would actually say the heat from the scene was generated as a collaborated effort. I had done a girl/girl/girl scene with Tia Tanaka and Lana Croft the day before so I knew what kind of energy to expect from Tia. Both of us just had really good chemistry working together and with Marco. I think if we hated each other’s guts and were just about “who looks better”, it would’ve been a weak scene with two angry girls and poor Marco caught in the middle. The good chemistry just pushed us to perform our very best
rope: Do you enjoy cooking? Are you a good cook? If I were to stumble into your kitchen, before you beat me senseless, would I be more likely to see you dining on:
A – Home Cooked Hunan Beef / Hunan Chicken
B – Delivery Pizza
C – Vegetarian Salad Platter
D – Cookies, Ice Cream, Potato Chips, & Soda
Evelyn Lin: Haha, I’m most likely to shield your eyes first—I’m always walking around naked in my apartment. Hm, most likely B and D. I’m a pretty horrible cook so my meals are pretty easy to make (my God, the things you can make with precooked rotisserie chicken!) However, I’m a very good baker and like to make crème brulee and mascarpone cupcakes for fun. As for vegetarian… I don’t think I could do it—I love my steak…. when someone else makes it of course!
rope: Many of our members (myself included) dislike the rough sex that seems to populate many scenes nowadays. Choking, slapping, spitting, hair pulling, forcing the girl’s head forward while pinching her nostrils shut during oral sex. I recently viewed your scene from Asian Street Hookers #45 with TT Boy. Thankfully, it wasn’t as rough as I feared. He did have his hand around your throat in several positions, which is disturbing enough for me. When you’ve booked a scene with TT Boy (or another performer / studio which tends to include rough sex), is the scene fully discussed ahead of time? Are the parameters and limits laid out, understood, and agreed upon? What if the limits are crossed despite a prior agreement?
Evelyn Lin: I actually don’t recall my scene with TT Boy being that rough. The hand around the throat isn’t my cup of tea but if it’s not really grabbing hard (which TT Boy wasn’t), I’ll let it slide and not ruin the heat of the scene. Performers do discuss limits and likes/dislikes before the scene however. I always just tell guys nothing too rough, that I’m not into the things you mentioned above (choking, slapping, etc.) except a little bit of hair pulling is okay and that my clit gets really sensitive so if I start to squirm, slow down on the clit play. Usually, a simple inconspicuous tap on the leg or arm will do the trick. I’ve only had my limits crossed once and I simply finished the scene and put the performer on my “Do Not Work With” list. Plus, I drive myself to shoots so I always have the option to just leave if things get out of control (hasn’t happened yet).
rope: Does it bring about a special feeling of satisfaction and achievement when chosen as the cover girl for a newly issued DVD? You’ve graced the box cover of numerous DVD releases, including a few on our site. You have to be stoked seeing yourself on the cover for the first time.
Evelyn Lin: It is definitely a good feeling to be cover girl! I remember sending a link of my first cover to everyone who emailed me saying “You have to check this out!” I feel a little embarrassed saying this but… sometimes one DVD will have multiple covers… and I always show everyone the one where I’m bigger on the cover. Everyone likes to have their ego stroked every now and then right?
rope: How does a petite girl such as yourself handle guys like Mark Ashley (Teen Machine), Steve Holmes (Erotica XXX #13), Manuel Ferrara (Teen Dreams #13), Michael Stefano (Teenage Peach Fuzz #2), Erik Everhard (Teens In Tight Jeans #2) or Lee Stone (Craving Big Cocks #11), to give a few examples. Those guys are pretty well endowed, and you’re well, pretty tiny. So when you know you have a scene with Mark Ashley the following day, how do you prepare for that? Have you ever had a co-star that was too big for you? What about the related topic of penis size and anal? Jenna Haze maintains that the larger cocks hurt the least when it comes to anal. She says, once inserted, a steady rhythm develops and it’s all good. But the (relatively) smaller cocks hurt the most in anal. Because you feel that you’re continuously being poked with each stroke. Do you find this to be true?
Evelyn Lin: Usually when I’m working with someone that’s really big, I ask to get a little lube and go for sort of a “test drive” before the cameras start rolling. That way, I can ease myself on and get “warmed up” before the pounding starts. If it’s a new guy I’ve never worked with, it also builds good sexual tension so we’re not jumping into the scene strangers… we’ve already fucked a little I’ve told my agency that I’m kind of scared of REALLY REALLY big guys (like Mandingo big) and they’ve been pretty good about not booking me with someone that big. The one guy I’ve worked with that was just too big for me was Chris Charming. The scene was just a blowjob and I could barely get my mouth around him so I knew for sure that sex with him probably wasn’t physically possible.
As for anal sex, I don’t know about the “smaller being worse” and the “bigger being better” thing but I agree that once in, I can handle a pretty hard pounding. I’ve had so many guys ask me how they can make anal with their girlfriends less painful and here’s the answer: Go slow! For me, I tell the guy to let me kind of ease myself onto his cock instead of him pushing forward so I can stop when it hurts. I always go really slow and always pause a few seconds every time I inch the cock a little deeper. When I finally get the whole cock inside my ass, I pause again for a bit longer to let my asshole stretch out a little and then I’m ready for anything. It’s really only the insertion that hurts so try a little more anal, girls!
Thank you Evelyn. Guys, be sure to check back later in the week for part 2 of the Evelyn Lin interview. If you have any questions or comments for Evelyn, please leave them as a reply to the post.
