If you consider yourself to be a member of Generation XXX, then the name, face and figure of Ashlyn Gere should be intimately familiar. Upon taking the adult industry by storm during the nineties, Ashlyn Gere quickly became one of those rare breed of adult actresses: a woman who lives up to her super-starlet hype and then some. She has already left a sexual legacy which may never be matched by any actress, and her work has been recognized, honored and awarded by industry institutions Adult Video News, Fans of X-Rated Entertainment, and the X-Rated Critics Organization. At 5' 3" tall, Ashlyn's tanned, tight form is a series of bumps and curves which make seeing her in all-out fucking action a pure delight. When she's in action, Gere flashes a sultry look, gritting her teeth and gasping with breathless anticipation. But seeing is believing. Fans were first introduced (via videotape, of course) to Ashlyn Gere when she was starring in many minor video quickies like Laid Off, a release where she shines in a straight scene with her lucky male partner who tries valiantly to keep up with her sexual energy. Since that time, we've been hooked on this busty, dark-haired, olive-skinned lovely lady. Born on September 14, 1959, Ashlyn's entry into the world of adult was that of a mature and very sensual woman in her early thirties. When you compare the cold, clinical performances of some the barely legal babes of today to that of Ashlyn's work throughout her career, there is no doubt that it takes a real woman of Ashlyn's charisma to show the girls how it's done! It was Ashlyn's sparkling eyes, shining smile and very curvy body which caught our attention on the cover of Secrets, the Andrew Blake masterpiece which showcases her talents magnificently. But a pretty face and a sexy body can only take you so far, and if it weren't for her mind-blowing sexual prowess, then Ashlyn might not have become the living legend she is today. Secrets is the best introduction to Ms. Gere one could have, from her opening scorcher with Rocco Siffredi, to her thrilling threesome with Samantha Strong and Siffredi, and ending with a sensuous girl-girl scene with Zara Whites. She is the one responsible for maintaining the heat of this big-budget movie from beginning to end. Actually, Ashlyn's first work under Andrew Blake can be found in House of Dreams, where she has a one-on-one with Randy West. Since we have plenty of Ashlyn to worship in Secrets, I suppose we can let the director off the hook for showing our girl in only a single scene saved for the movie's end. Although House of Dreams is considered to be one of Blake's finest, you should definitely pick up both to see as much Gere as possible! Fan-worship for her was strengthened in Imagine, a feature film where she plays a sexually repressed businesswoman who daydreams about sexual activities going on around her. It was here where fans and critics were able to confirm Ashlyn's superb fellatio skills, characterized by deep thrusts and enthusiastic lip and tongue work. In a standout sequence, Ashlyn has an office affair with Jon Dough which is brimming with heat and desire. The sounds and sights of sex have never been more appealing than when she slowly takes Dough into her mouth. She is sexier than hell when she gradually learns the skills of administering oral pleasure, and by the movie's end, she is drawn out of her shell and goes for broke with lucky Mike Horner. One of her best films to date has been the two-part Michael Ninn epic, The Secret Garden, in which she appears in every other scene and simply sizzles with longtime porn studs Mike Horner, Randy Spears and Jonathan Morgan. When Ashlyn gets fucked, she throws her whole body into the scene. She bares her teeth like a wildcat in heat while riding on a hard cock, and is unashamedly vocal in her orgasmic reactions. It also goes without saying that Ashlyn looks terrific every second she's on-screen, wearing various slutty outfits and all sorts of wigs to give her a wilder, more daring look. Yet, she looks her loveliest in a simple, virgin white dress and with her flowing, brown hair framing her gorgeous face. She does bolder work in Realities, taking on gangbangs, spreading herself for anal work, and getting more of a taste of female flesh. So if you want a contrast in looks and style, take a look at her frolicking in The Secret Garden before watching her at work in Realities. Ashlyn was also featured in several VCA titles, including the Empire Award-winning The Tease, where she and Tom Byron put on a voyeuristic show for the stunning Lauren Hall. Her body-hugging yellow dress can barely contain her front-end curves which are subjected to Byron's horny groping and aggressive stroking. In The Last Resort, she and slinky Selena Steele make lesbian love before dragging in Mr. Byron into a lusty mÃ©nage a trois. John Leslie's Bad sports a cover focusing on sexy things Lauren Hall (looking oh-so desirable in a tight pink dress) and Ms. Gere in white lace. Although Ashlyn lends only a supporting role to this movie with a lesbian scene with Iesha, followed by a threesome with Marc Wallice, which is brief and to the point. Yet, it's clear that her very presence can elevate even the most average video to greater heights. However, when it comes to listing her very best films, then John Leslie's Chameleons must be in the top one percent. This shot on film blockbuster is cryptically described as being "Not The Sequel" to the original Chameleon, one of the finest videos ever made featuring Tori Welles. However, the same story device of sex-seeking, body-changing beings (played by Deidre Holland and Rocco Siffredi) is still employed here. The bizarre proceedings beckon a sexually curious Ashlyn to the world of these chameleon-like humans (or is that human-like chameleons?) and give her free reign to deliver some of her most memorable sexual workouts ever. Beginning with a hot and sweaty bathroom tryst with Rocco that shows-off some great tit-fucking and energetic deep-throating, and leading into an aggressive session of lesbian loving with Deidre, Ashlyn is in rare form throughout the movie. It's no wonder that this classic garnered such rave reviews and a host of industry awards for Ms. Gere. Eventually, Ashlyn would be lured into being a Vivid Girl, a role befitting for a woman of her talents and looks. Although Vivid Video is generally known for its couples-oriented productions, Ashlyn did not hold back on her erotic energy, and never gave her films less than 100% of her body and soul. Fan favorites include Anonymous, in which she appears in three hot scenes, and generates combustible chemistry with Steve Drake for a motel room romp ending in one of her best filmed oral cumshots. Nikki Dial and Tiffany Mynx provide a nice interlude to what is essentially an Ashlyn Gere vehicle, but no one can steal a scene away from Ms. Gere. Her lead role in The Massuese 2 was an acting tour-de-force, and which garnered her one of three awards in three different categories at the 1994 Adult Video News Awards. Even with stellar supporting players like Asia Carrera and Leena, Ashlyn carries the role perfectly and her scenes are among the hottest in this sex-action-packed feature. She also appears in the period piece "Director's Cut" of Bonnie & Clyde, a two-part film edited into one DVD. Her most stunning scene occurs with the ravishing Racquel Darrian as they make up for a climactic lesbian encounter. In Ashlyn Rising, we get to see her performing in three of five scenes, including an interracial with Sean Michaels. She manages to maintain the spotlight in Paul Thomas's terrific little film Cheating despite the potentially scene-stealing sexual acrobatics of co-stars Leena (who does a great car-top anal scene) and Christina Angel. We feel the same level of horniness that she feels in the aptly titled Aroused with Asia Carrera and Tara Monroe, and continue to enjoy her company in Companion and New Lovers. However, the stylishly clever Steamy Windows also offers great work by Ms. Gere, who leads talents like Roxanne Blaze, P.J. Sparxx, and Dyanna Lauren into an all-star orgy at the film's conclusion. Ashlyn Rising, Cheating and Night Vision earned some high ratings by those "hardened" reviewers who could not help but sing her praises for every one of her scenes. Her contract work for Vivid would mean that her athletic sex scenes would be accentuated by higher production values and intriguing storylines. As great as she looks on video, film seems to capture her smoldering beauty the best as seen in Steamy Windows and Anonymous. Before Ashlyn's retirement, she offered her cameo services in the Sorority Sex Kittens "trilogy." She performed in a girl-girl scene in Part 1, and participated in a straight boy/girl scene with Jon Dough in Part 2. Directed by Jim Holliday, these movies are also well known for their massive all-girl orgies which serve as the climax to each edition. In the second sequel, Sorority Sex Kittens 3, Ashlyn again indulges in the pleasures of the female flesh in a film which tries to outdo all previous orgies by having thirty of porn's finest join in on the party. Recently, Ashlyn and Tom Byron rekindled their old flames for a hotter and nastier time in the recently released Extremely Yours: Ashlyn Gere, a collection of scenes from her comeback performances for Extreme Associates which includes the title House of Whores. Showing that she could take on any task before her, Ashlyn's appearances for Extreme have all the ass fucking and debauched hardcore one expects from this studio where sex is not taken (nor performed) lightly! Ashlyn has recently made several videos for VCA, the studio which luckily got her just as her stardom shot into space. We can all look forward to the eventual DVD release of Decadence, a Michael Ninn feature co-starring Victoria Paris, and her upcoming production for VCA which should bring her back to the public spotlight as Torn, White Lightning and Taken have done for another returning superstar, Ginger Lynn.

Talkingblue.com: So we are here with Ashlyn Gere.
Ashlyn Gere: Hi!
acolation of legendary.
Ashlyn Gere: Oh please!
Ashlyn Gere: Well, for me it's something you never get used to. It's a compliment and
it's always nice to hear. And it's an honor to be put in that kind of
category with so many other famous women and men in the adult business, so
it's always welcome.
anything, but how long have you been in the industry.
Ashlyn Gere: It will be almost 9 years since I started doing movies. Dancing on the
road, I started that about a year after starting the movies.
Ashlyn Gere: Actually, first I was independent for about 2 years. I worked for, mainly
VCA, John Leslie, people like that. I got very lucky and they were very nice
to me. And then Stevie Hirsch and Paul Thomas contacted me from Vivid and I
was with them for approximately 3 years. And then I started doing a lot of
I did "Space: Above & Beyond", "Millennium", "The X-Files". FOX-TV has been
very kind to me and they are the best company to work for. Um, I did two
movies in that time period for VCA again. And then Rob Black and Tommy Byron
from Extreme Associates called. And made me an offer I couldn't refuse.
Ashlyn Gere: And hear I am.
like Playboy of porn. Then mainstream acting and it was kind of a "low key"
sort of thing for you. Then you come back, and with Extreme of all places.
That seemed like a radical return.
Ashlyn Gere: Well, you know what. When I originally started in the business, I was
known for very hot sex scenes. Maybe not the nastiest sex scenes, but I was
very much into my partner and sweating, all out. When we're having sex, we
are really gonna have sex today. So, what I was explained to, when I was
asked to work for Vivid, was actually to help with their European sales,
because they were so Playboyish, that myself and another girl...Teri Weigal,
was being considered to help boost, you know. I took it as a compliment, so I
had a wonderful time at Vivid and they're a wonderful company and I did enjoy
working for them. A few things didn't work out, so I left them. But when I
think about signing with Extreme, to me it was a natural progression because
I've always worked that way. So when you look at it, "She was a Vivid Girl,
oh she did mainstream TV: then you get the impression that the Playboy thing
is going again.
walking around with T-shirts that said, "Vivid Girls Suck".
Ashlyn Gere: I heard about that, I wasn't there.
Ashlyn Gere: I do it all, hey!
something you wanted to do?
Ashlyn Gere: Acting has always been my first love. I have double major, communication
broadcasting and theatre arts. So when I first came to LA I wanted to be a
famous movie star. But I always tell people. "When you dream, be very
specific on what you dream about." Because in my dream, I never said adult,
but that's how it turned out. Which I have no regrets, but I just wasn't
specific over that line. My love for acting and theatre, I've been very lucky
film that you are doing today, you're behind it, you're not just in front of
the camera. You're all over this.
Ashlyn Gere: I'm co-directing and I actually gave ideas to the person who wrote the
script. Lane Parker is the director on the set, but we discuss most of the
scenes off the set or if there is something specific I want done, he
accommodates me. But, he is one of my favorite directors and he used to
direct for me at Vivid also. He directed all my video stuff over there.
Ashlyn Gere: This is the biggest video Extreme has done since it came together as a
company. It's a three-day shoot and a very large cast, some beautiful girls,
a lot of Extreme contract girls also. It's going really, really well We shot
at the Queen Mary today.
Ashlyn Gere: The strip club Queen Mary in Studio City, California. We got some really
nice stuff, extras and everything. So Rob Black is really going all out for
this production and I'm really happy for that and grateful to him and Tommy
Ashlyn Gere: Rubber. Well that's still in the works. There was a little accident, a
few script rewrites. We're hoping to get it completed by the end of the year.
I don't know if it's going to be done or not. That's Rob's film, you'll
have to ask Rob about that one.
that you hear coming out of there. "Everybody lives at Tommy Byron's house,
everybody just signs on and then immediately scrambles away, Rob getting into
fights, Rob going down to Brazil and then getting chased out of Brazil, guns,
drugs." I mean, the Mob movies don't have anything to even compete with the
stories they say about Extreme.
Ashlyn Gere: Can you believe it.
Ashlyn Gere: (Laughing) Most of the stories are true!
And I have seen some of them. But um, Rob and Tommy are really pulling
together. They got a really good core of people. Of course they had a few
problems in the past with some of the talent and you know that happens in all
Ashlyn Gere: Thank you.
I'm going to tell you what you can and can't shoot." We came here and the
director was like, "Where do you guys wanna be." Half the time he was like
doing his shot and then moving out of the way for us!
Ashlyn Gere: Thank you! I attribute that mainly to lane Parker. Sometimes in the
morning of a shot, it's a little hectic but he's pretty much a professional,
and likes everyone to be punctual. But I also give him credit, because he is
one of the most well researched and ready to go directors. When he walks onto
a set he makes everybody else's job easy and comfortable. He wants you to do
your work, but also wants you to be relaxed and ready to work. It's very nice
to get done shooting an hour early. I can't say that about most of the
directors in this business.
big, big, BIG Internet sites. Then that kind of went away.
Ashlyn Gere: Yeah, unfortunately, Christy (Canyon), Janine and I had a legal problem
with AlleyKatz (website provider). So that's definitely over with for all of
us. I'm currently putting together my own site, but since I'm not home very
often and now with the Extreme contract, it's taking me much longer that I
thought it would.
Ashlyn Gere: Like I said, I'm trying to do it on my own. And a good friend of mine,
Lisa Lipps, don't know if you know her, is helping me out.
Ashlyn Gere: She has two sites and is teaching me how to do my own. She's wonderful
and making money on it. She has one of those 24-hour webcam sites. Can you
imagine? Aw, I couldn't do that.
see you 24 hours a day.
Ashlyn Gere: No. It would be fine I guess, if you just loved living in your house all
the time. But I like to have a little bit of a life. You know I travel so
much, I like to have a little bit of privacy.
Ashlyn Gere: I live in Las Vegas. I do movies over here. I dance on the road. I shot
for FOX-TV a lot, so I'm either her or in Vancouver, Canada. So the traveling
...agh! I have so many frequent flyer miles.
Ashlyn Gere: They have me up for consideration for two new pilots.
Ashlyn Gere: Thank you. Did you watch them often?
there, we gotta watch it. And you were the bad guy! That's the cool part.
Ashlyn Gere: I was the lead villain. Can you imagine that, even on Primetime, I get
hired as the bitch.
Ashlyn Gere: I'm just a bad girl, what do you want.
because they were fans of yours.
Ashlyn Gere: Yes.
Ashlyn Gere: Yes. I was actually watching Ginger Lynn perform one night dancing at a
club. And I got a tap on my shoulder from the producer of the TV series. He
said, "Hello, I would like to have you on the show next season." I was like,
"Yeah, right!" and walked away from him. Anyway, to make a long story short.
He gave me his card and it said FOX TV Studios on it. I was like, Oh my God;
I just made a fool of myself. And we have been friends ever since that. It's
been 3 and 1/2 years now.
Ashlyn Gere: Yes you will. Thanks for talking with me.
