2009/2010: Looking back & looking ahead...



Wow...I can hardly believe another year has passed! So much has happened in the last 12 months that 2009 seemed to go by faster than almost any year of my life thus far.

First, a look backward at 2009. It's certainly no secret that 2009 is the year I "went pro"...well, sort of, anyway. Although Steve and I still ran my primary amateur site, Janet Exposed, the fact is immediately after we moved to Los Angeles last winter, the offers for top-paying, high-profile pro shoots came hard and heavy and I found them difficult to resist...at least at first.

Why do I say "at first"? Do I regret doing pro work at all? Well, yes and no. "No" because Steve and I met some really great people...guys and gals who wanted to shoot with us for my site as well as just plain friends with no sexual aspect to the relationship at all. "Yes" because we also met far too many people who in the business for all the wrong reasons, because there were too many times when I'd show up for a shoot only to find out that it was something I would not normally want to do at all but was already obligated to do and, finally, because I was so busy (sometimes shooting as many as 5-6 scenes a week!) that it often would seem like "work" instead of the fun, exhilarating sex I love and am used to on the shoots Steve and I do for our own site. Last but not least, we had very little time for anything else and had to back way off on our primary (and non-adult related) business, which we love.

Don't get me wrong...I'm not going to go on a rant about the "bad" part of pro porn world. I learned a lot, had some good times and met enough decent people who were genuinely into it that it was not a "bad" experience. But will I focus so heavily on pro work anymore, or do it anywhere near full-time status again? No, never again...from now on it will be only now and then, on a select basis. Let's just say that the pro world was not what I expected it to be and that for every company, director or performer who was great and everything I could have possibly hoped for, there were five more companies, directors or performers whom I would never consider shooting with again. I will not mention any names...either the good ones or the bad ones. I have taken responsibility for my choices, have learned my lesson and am moving on.

To that end, a look forward at 2010. Putting our actions where our words are, Steve and I actually moved back east (much to the chagrin of our kids, who loved California) in order to get away from the L.A. pro porn world and focus on what we do best and enjoy most...our own amateur sites, on a part-time basis only. Real sex with real fans who are really into it. We also intend to re-focus on our primary, non-adult business, which we not only find very fulfilling but which provides a healthy balance that we sorely missed in 2009.

Will I still do occasional pro scenes in L.A.? Since we visit the area several times a year, I may...but only very few scenes per year for select companies...and only those types of scenes which accurately reflect the "real me" and what I am genuinely into...very well-endowed black men, clean-cut and very fit younger white guys, other women and my personal kinks such as handjobs, facials, foot fetish, etc. At no point will I ever consider doing another scene that is not something I'd do in my personal life again (such as bondage) and, if I am ever deliberately misled by a director again, I will simply walk off set...that is a promise to myself, to Steve and to my fans. I'd rather shoot for my own site with a fan who really wants to be there than get paid for a pro shoot I'm not into. It's just not worth it to me and Steve & I are financially fortunate enough to be able to to have that kind of attitude.

Likewise, Steve and I will not be at AVN this year nor will we attend any other "adult industry" parties, conventions, etc. We tried that, briefly, while in L.A. and it's just not us. We are just not "party people"...we don't drink heavily, we don't do drugs, and we're not into hanging out in clubs all night, etc. We're way too squeaky-clean and health/fitness oriented, for one thing, plus as parents our "real" life as a family takes priority. Frankly, there are a million things we'd rather talk about than the "adult industry".

In short, we are going back to what we used to be before I tried pro work...a close-knit, regular couple with kinky tastes in sex who have the good fortune to be able to share it online in a deliberately amateur style with like-minded people. Once again we will focus on my web sites. I'll be updating my blog much more often...and, as a bonus, Steve will be contributing his own blog posts from the "husband's perspective"...not only because many of you have been requesting that he do so, but also because we really let the fact that we do what we do as a couple...and a happy one at that...slide to the background as my pro work brought me a certain level of "celebrity" which I have found I am not really comfortable with.

That being said, I want to thank each and every one of you for all the love and support you've shown me over the past 11 years online and I wish you all a Happy New Year. Steve and I are both very excited about recommitting to our "Mom & Pop" amateur status and we both look forward to interacting with you in 2010!

Love,

Janet

Congratulations! Good for you and tour husband. I will not being going to avn as well but the only consideration of this thought was to meet you and thank you for your work. Talk soon.

Vdog said...

What great news regarding 2010. Your home made material was leaps and bounds ahead the pro stuff in most cases. I wish a much joy and happiness in 2010. very excited to see what you have in store for your fans.

Hey Janet,
Thanks for the view into your world. It seems like a lot of what comes out of the L.A. porn world lacks feeling and a sense of fun. That is what I love about your personal videos, it seems like you are having fun. Good luck with the move.

Peace

dyuken said...

Janet, I just got into your work and I do notice that you seem to be quite different from most folks in the "business". This is pretty refreshing to say the least.

You do look as if you are really trying to have fun. So keep on doing your thing and have a great 2010.

TallMan Motorcycle Rider said...

Im glad your going to be doing more amateur....You didnt seem to be as into it doing the pro shoots, you didnt look happy in most of the ones I saw.
I have been member of your site for years!

Anonymous said...

Fair enough, could you please tell your fans about the Hottest Black studs you enjoyed after going Pro and why?

What kind of IR action will your fans see on your website in the future?

Janet, you're SUPER HOT! ALL of your Fans will look forward to your response.

Freejames said...

Best of luck in 2010 to Janet.

Certainly 2009 was an interesting year, especially if you were a fan of Janet. The move to "pro" certainly yeilded lots of content with Janet, she was a box-cover pheonom... I'm sure she helped moved a lot of product for the L.A. producers she worked for.

But I absolutely understand not wanting to be "product" for the L.A. meat-grinder that is the porn industry. Janet's biggest appeal, I believe, has always been her attitude and sincerity which came across 100% in her own productions... not so much, as she mentioned, on the pro side where other people controlling the scenes can make it unpleasant for the performers.

At least the pro experience will have exposed Janet to many more new fans, hopefully that translates into continued success as she moves her focus back to doing things her own way.

Once again, bravo Janet... always looking forward to what you have in store for the future.

that is great news. we never really understood why you went pro and did some weird scences. look forward to seeing you work out and get your body back in that hot shape we know you from. we are all guessing you did not get to the gymm often when you shot pro. Happy new year

Anonymous said...

My wife and I are BIG fans!! We love how real you are. Your cream(or "frothed up" as Steve calls it in your vids) on BIG cocks is proof positive that you are REALLY into what you are doing. My wife gets so wet watching your videos. We have had countless O's after watching your own videos. We especially like you with Carl. It's so real. So unscripted. We are thrilled that you have seen the light and are heading back in the right direction. Happy New Year!!!

Welcome home Janet, we wait for you, I'm from Italy and say you: why don't write a book about your experience? You have the skill and the culture to do. Sorry for my english. Bye

Great for you and Steve. I'm glad someone has the courage to really state how they feel about the adult business. I never was really into porn until I "ran into" your site. From then it progressed to watching Pro porn and only because Janet started doing pro work. Well Janet is the only adult material of any kind that I purchase and will gladly continue being a member and purchasing her stuff. Janet and Steve you guys are awesome. And thank you for what you as a couple do for us that need a little spice in our life!!!

Anonymous said...

Yes! Fantastic news! Please continue down the path where you were heading...cuckoldry without the negativity or extremism. A loving couple whose wife needs a variety of (big, young or black) cock and an adoring husband who loves spoiling her. It clearly excites you both, so go for it! More cuckkold handjob stuff, too, please!

I am so happy to know that you are going back to what you do best-- and we fans all know how hot you can be doing your best!!--and I look forward to launching many a load watching you in action with those big black cocks. I have enjoyed your videos for years and years and have collcted 14 or so...you are the hottest!! No one compares to you in terms of sexual attitude, which as you must know, emanates from the most erogenous zone of all--the mind!! Thanks for years of hot hot fun!!

The adult world prob will reconsider how they go about things when an awsome milf comes aboard again

As a gentleman that has had the pleasure to party with you once, I applaud your decision. Your a phenom in you niche. The "pro" industry can't touch what you've created on your own. Good luck in 2010

Janet:
Sounds like you had a very interesting year in 2009 and will have an even better one in 2010. I can see how the pro shoots can be both good and bad - it's great that you tried it; and, even better that you're coming back under your own control. I have seen a lot of content out there with you on it; most of it was very good. Best of luck with relocation. have a great year.

By the Way Janet, Congratulations On MILF of The Year 2009 for C.A.V.R

Bill Laskie said...

Fantastic news, Janet! Your site and DVDs are the ONLY ones my wife enjoys and no one shoots you like Steve does. Watching your stuff is what led us from "talking about" the lifestyle to actually doing it 6 years ago, and we've never looked back. One thing that really struck us (besides your stunning beauty and voracious appetite for strange cock and cum) is the way you can often hear the "shake" in Steve's voice (and even his camera) when he knows how good you are getting fucked...not only does YOUR lust arouse HIM, but YOUR pleasure is obviously HIS pleasure...the very cornerstone of a hotwife or loving cuckoldry relationship. And it goes without saying that no one captures your beauty, your amazing body or your outright carnal lust for big black cock, fit white guys 1/2 your age and multiple male partners like Steve does...NO ONE. Here's to more quality stuff from you guys in 2010!

John and Jenny said...

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! This is great news, Janet. We hope 2010 finds you making more scenes for your site with hardbody, model-esque young white studs like Will and Johnny. We have always loved your interracial scenes with huge-dicked black men but, wow, we must say that the new "cougar" thing really suits you...we can almost SMELL your raw animal lust for young hardbodies right through the TV screen or monitor! We can also tell you from years of personal experience that regularly fucking young studs will keep you trim and youthful yourself, Janet. Jenny looks younger now than she did 10 years ago, when she had her first young lover and almost everyone thinks she is 10-15 years younger than she is.

You and Steve rock. See ya online, babe.

Speaking as a fan of your foot tease site from 10 years ago, it is a pleasure to have you back in the amateur arena, especially with the re-boot of the foot tease site. I hope for you all the best for 2010.

Perfect! Hopefully you will continue to shoot more with your new kink of young white hardbodies. Your "cougar chronicles" series is HOT! Nice balance to the big black cock, which you also rock at. Kudos to Steve for capturing you so well, too.

Congrats on your decision. I also did porn "back in the day" (70's and early 80's) when it was FUN and the sex was HOT. Back then we women were treated with respect and it was understood that we WOULD be having real orgasms 95% of the time. There are very few pro studios these days who produce quality stuff and it seems like you have found most of them. Stick with those companies and directors and forget the others. I say this as a loyal female fan of the work you and Steve produce.

florio said...

Lovely Janet
I agree 100% with your decision. It was something I desired since youo went PRO.
Interisting to know all comments here agree with you. Certainly because you made the right decision.
Happy 2010

Bryan Carlisle said...

The problem is clear, Janet…but so is its solution.

For 10 years you were used to getting well-fucked on a regular basis. Steve always ensured that, and you always enjoyed it. It was obvious in your work. You are a natural-born "shared wife" if ever there was one. There simply is no one better.



Then you started doing mostly pro work and instead of getting even more of the great sex you were used to, it was often "work" and very few scenes found you getting properly fucked senseless by guys you were clearly into, like on your own site.



If you feel bad about your attitude and appearance as you have suggested, that is why. And the solution is simple - START GETTING PROPERLY FUCKED AGAIN ON A REGULAR BASIS!



This is what all women who are true hotwife or cuckoldress personalities need and the proof is in the pudding, as they say. Every time my wife Connie used to stop getting a steady diet of cock from a variety of men, she started feeling bad about herself, gaining weight, taking less care of herself, etc. And every time she got back into that state of being regularly "well-fucked" by other men (and allowing me to spoil her in that regard) her self-esteem and confidence got back to normal, she took better care of herself and she got fit again. I've seen the same cycle in your appearance and attitude over the past decade since I found your site and Connie and I have seen it in other couples we've befriended in the cuckold lifestyle. 



The trick is knowing that your needs as a hotwife or cuckoldress are great and that no one will ever understand them except your husband and other couples you will meet in the lifestyle. That's what Connie did, and at 48 she looks and feels better than ever after accepting who she is and enjoying it rather than feeling "guilty" because she is hardwired with sexual needs for a variety of men on a regular basis.

The pro biz is less about hot sex than it is about money and selfish, adolescent male fantasies...but the hotwife/cuckold lifestyle is ALL about hot sex the common fantasies of many women and couples with devoted husbands. Its clear that you are the ultimate hotwife/cuckoldress in every way, so go with what you know! Maybe you should spend a couple of months getting fucked by the kind of studs you like OFF camera until you feel and look like "you" again. Then come back to us, your fans, with a fresh outlook.

Billy Watson said...

I want to convey to everyone how great it was to work with Janet. Just superb. A great person and someone who really cares about her fans. Steve's great too. I've directed more than a handful of scenes and Janet is, by far, one of my very favorite people I've shot. Great decision and nothing but good luck to both of you!

Janet
it is great to see you back and out of the pro business. you must have had an interesting experience. it would be great to hear on your blog more about what you liked and disliked about the pro business. it is not often someone like you goes pro and then leaves. are the drugs and diseases a problem? how often did you get to a shoot to find out it wasnt what you signed up for,

my wife and I can't wait to see more of your home stuff! we are looking forward to seeing your well defined body in home clips!! work those abs out girl!!

Anonymous said...

Janet, as a female fan who LOVES your site and DVDs , I'd like to commend you on your decision. My husband Tom exposed me to you 8 years ago, and you are the ONLY web girl I like to watch. We bought a few of your pro DVDs only because you were in them and for the most part the stuff Steve shoots with you is MUCH hotter and "real". Plus he keeps the focus on the fact that you are a couple. It just comes across as very hedonistic and indulgent, not trashy or degrading in any way, and it is obvious that Steve loves watching you have sex with other men and women as much as you enjoy getting it.

We have a lot in common. We're close in age - I'm 44. We're both mothers - I also have three children, all teenagers. We're both into fitness - my husband and I work out 5-6 days a week and I have competed in 4 figure shows. We both come from a swinging background that evolved into a purely wife-watching lifestyle. We both go crazy for huge cocks, we both love dark-skinned black men and we both love young, fit white cuties half our ages. (I had my first young plaything 6 years ago and now that's my favorite demographic. Luckily we live in a university and military area so it is very easy to indulge!)

The biggest difference between us is that I would LOVE to have a web site but can't due to the fact that Tom is the mayor of our town and we have to be VERY discreet. After the big scandal last year with the city manager in Florida whose wife had a site, we can't risk it.

Anyway, here's to refocusing on your roots. I have a suspicion that you have many other female fans of your site work, too. Your site made me feel comfortable with the transition Tom and I made from being equal-swap swingers (which he was never really into) to a full-on hotwife lifestyle without any guilt. You two are great and have been a huge inspiration to us both!

Janet (and Steve!), you guys rock. I hope you stay online for many, many years and that the political climate allows you to keep doing so. I hate the right wingers who want adult sites to be shut down - they visit and subscribe to them themselves, right from their own offices, at taxpayers expense. They bust prostitutes and escorts yet openly hire them in their hotel rooms, courtesy of their constituents tax money. They fight for "family values" yet get multiple divorces themselves. They hate gay people but cruise the airport’s men’s room for cock after a long flight. They preach monogamy, but use your money to fly to exotic places to bang their mistresses while their wives and female politicos have affairs as well. Like all fakes, they can't handle any form of criticism at all and resort to being aggressive Name Callers and War Mongers, trying desperately to avert attention from their selfish superficiality by intimidating and controlling others. They want to crucify drug users — right after they score a hit themselves. They get on the podium and preach stronger drunk driving laws, then expect lawmen t let them off the hook when they are literally passed out cold behind the wheel. They criticize without following up with solutions. They’re the first to pass judgment and the first to cite Jesus as a "source" of their "faith", then sneak and steal and lie worse then the moderates and liberals they attack.

This comment board only goes to show everyone the popularity of Janet Mason. WOW!! I dare anyone to find more comments on one posting by anyone on their own blog. Probably not. It's amazing to me how popular our favorite Couple has really become. Some say she lost fans by going part time pro. I think she made more new fans. I've been with her and Steve for the Long Haul and will continue to support everything they do. I'm even more excited about what Janet and Steve will have to offer in 2010 than ever before. They probably made some great contacts while trying the Pro world. And I mean some legit good people along the way to enhance their own site like talent and such. I'm excited as hell and waiting with great anticipation as to what will happen in Janet's and Steve's world in 2010. Good luck to you both!!! Love You Janet and Steve!!!!

You're burned out because you weren't getting the quality sex that you were always used to, Janet...good, solid fucking and quality/multiple orgasms you are known for.

What you need to do is simply get WELL-FUCKED again by a hung black guy with the size you love or by a young white guy with the high level of sexual stamina you require. That'll adjust your attitude and you'll be fine. I'll bet Steve will not only understand but be more than willing to accommodate you, Janet.

Bill & Kim said...

Thank you, Janet, that was a very beautiful and heartfelt blog entry. You are an incredibly sexy, beautiful and classy lady with a sex drive that is so beautifully powerful and Steve is truly "the man" when it comes to capturing that, no one else in your pro work came close that we saw. I'm sorry that you had some not so great experiences but happy that your amature films will continue.

BTW. oh my GOD your feet are exquisite. Your sexy size 4-1/2 feet are amazing. My wife also has pretty, small feet with super wrinkly soles (size 5 1/2) and I always lick and kiss them before I offer her to her hung black lovers and again after they have fucked her senseless and limp. Your work has been a true, very real inspiration to our own "loving cuckoldry" marriage over the past 8 years since we found you. Thanks.

Bill Dobbins said...

Janet, I think I speak for many of your fans when I say that I hope you reconsider your near-ban on pro work.

The fact is that you are one the THE BEST female performers out there of ANY age. And when it comes to MILFs, no one else comes close. Yes there are the Lisa Anns and the Diamond Fox's, but these ladies don't seem like "moms" at all, they look, act, walk and talk like 20-somethings. You on the other hand are pure class and maturity AND you love, love, love to fuck. That's obvious.

The fact is that some of your pro scenes are definite AVN award worthy material and if you stick with pro work on YOUR terms you would probably get a MILF award. Both pro scenes you did with Lex Steele, all your scenes for Cougars in Heat, the new one for Penthouse with that young white stud, and your scene for Evil Angel with Will Steiger are genre-defining classics. And it's clear that you were not just performing, you were FUCKING and BEING FUCKED, and loving every minute of it.

I think you just made some bad choices and now you think those bad experiences are the nature of the biz. But they are not. YOU are in control of what scenes you do and don't do, not your agent. I've never seen a classic MILF like your friend Deauxma do any scenes that go 100% against her established image so why you? It's you, not your agent. Deauxma's husband manages her and Steve seems a HELL of a lot more smart than he is, so maybe you should go that route.

Now that you are back east you should consider doing what Deauxma does, coming out for select shoots with the companies you like, doing scenes that reflect your actual sexual preferences (as you do on your site), and working with the kind of studs you like.

I sure hope you do and I know that a LOT of guys are bummed out that you seem to have disappeared. Check the forums. You have fans who love both your pro AND amateur work!
