A Boff at the Burger Palace: On the Set with Pleasure Girl Nikki Benz
PACOIMA, Calif. - Nikki Benz arrives early for the first boy/girl scene of her adult film career, wearing tinted sunglasses, hip-hugger jeans and a relaxed smile.
The new Pleasure Girl is one of the first people at the Burger Palace at 11:15 a.m. because she rode with producer Mark Kramer. The elaborate fake diner is hidden inside the Air Designs studio, which is next to a dismantling yard in this busy industrial area. Today’s schedule includes an Olivia Saint/Lee Stone anal for Retro Love and then Benz meeting Ben English for The Sweetest Thing, both for Pleasure Productions and director Andre Madness.
While the crew hustles through the double-doors, I see Benz reading her script on the vinyl couch designed like the backseat of a vintage car and ask her what she thinks of the occasion.
"I’m looking forward to it. I’m excited," she says, adding that she made her screen debut in Strap-On Sally 20. "I’ve done three movies. I’ve done two girl/girl and one solo."
The 21-year-old Toronto native tells me this is just her second trip to the States and she has begun to learn about the rigors of porn.
"I think before I got into this business I thought it was easy," Benz says. "It’s a lot of work. A lot of waiting, a lot of traveling, a lot of makeup and hair..."
She tells me she worked at Starbucks before becoming a stripper and bikini model and says the move to XXX fits her.
"I love sex. That’s definitely one of the reasons," Benz says. "I was dancing, and the whole being a stripper part is very erotic and I know I want to take it a step further, and I did. I like it. I like being recognized for something you do. And I guess I like the attention and the money’s good, and it’s exciting."
Benz plays the humble Jane in her first feature and English’s character is Charlie. Both live in the same trailer park.
"It’s sort of like a Cinderella story," Benz explains.
By 1 p.m., the set is ready for Saint to fuck Stone, who rolled up on his 1990 silver Harley Fat Boy motorcycle wearing a black helmet that says "Born to Fuck" on the back.
Kramer tells me the scene for Retro Love is a flashback with "a waitress and a greaser." Benz sits down in makeup and English talks on his cell phone in the parking lot when Saint starts inhaling Stone’s prick underneath the neon "Time to Eat" sign.
"No choking, no hair-pulling, no slapping," Madness reminds the experienced pair. This is a feature, after all.
After Stone nearly drives Saint through the wall in missionary, he wrecks her rectum doggie style, Saint eats his cum and at 2:15 they say their good-byes.
While Madness and crew move outside for a gas station scene, I ask English if he’s ever worked with a first-time girl and he doesn’t recall. The native of England says he’s been performing in LA for two years after first fucking on film in London. He tells me he was the stage production manager for touring acts such as the Rolling Stones and Metallica before this gig.
Meanwhile, Benz slips into tiny jean shorts and a blue T-shirt and asks English, "Want to rehearse one more time"
"Absolutely," he replies and they go over their pre-sex banter.
I decide to ask Madness how he approaches someone’s first b/g.
"We just have to make her feel comfortable and have communication between me and the performer," he says. "It’s really tough when you have somebody right next to you and you’re doing a very intimate thing and you’re exposing yourself to the world. You have to be totally comfortable or else it shows on camera. A grimace. A fake smile..."
By 4:37, Benz and English are pressed against the counter making out hard and dry humping and then English releases Benz’s big tits from her tight shirt.
"Suck on those tits. You like that, huh?" Benz says. The pace is fast and the scene is off to a ball-draining start.
"Finger my pussy Charlie, yeah, shit," she continues.
The "closed" set includes six crewmembers. The sun is beginning to set as Benz drops her shorts and English props her onto the counter.
"You eat my pussy so good, stick your face in it," Benz says.
Ten minutes later, Benz is on her knees applying a double-fisted cock-sucking technique. I lean back in the booth and watch her slap English’s tool off her tongue, spit on it and beat her cheek with it.
"Yeah, the other cheek, fuck yeah," she says.
English fucks her mouth for a while and calls her, "nasty girl."
They cowgirl on the stool commences at 5 and Benz loves it.
"Let me see your face," Madness says. "Look down at your butt, like you can see the penetration."
The first stills break comes and Madness says, "Good job guys." Benz requests some water and three guys move quickly for it.
They move to the couch for more cowgirl, and then reverse cowgirl and I notice the heart-shaped tan line above Benz’s pussy.
"Slap my ass," Benz says.
"Fuck me you nasty little slut," English says.
"Oh yeah, I feel like such a slut," she says. Benz is a natural.
The doggie at 5:28 is superb and Benz, showing great presence of mind for her first time, stays in character, "Oh Charlie! Grab my boobs!"
"Excellent energy," Madness says as Benz sips more water.
After a fake internal pop, and a touch-up of makeup at 5:35, they try a spoon hybrid and English announces mercifully, "I think I’m going to cum."
"I want you to cum all over my face," Benz says.
She rubs her tits and massages her clit while staring at English as he beats off wildly in front of her. Then he unloads a stream of batter that bounces off her tongue, sprays her face and coats her tits.
"Just the way I like it," she says before she licks him clean.
"Great job guys," Madness says just before the pizza arrives.
It’s an outstanding debut for Benz, who shows star qualities from the first frame to the last.
"She was anxious," Madness tells me later. "That makes my job easy."
Pleasure Productions will release The Sweetest Thing and Retro Love later this year.
