This is the first post in a series of interviews with the clients of Star Factory recorded at the Adult Industry Expo in Las Vegas.

Cindy Starfall is an atypical porn star.
Born in Saigon long after the end of the Vietnam War, Cindy was raised by a nanny. At fifteen, she emigrated to the States and finished her education at an all-girl Catholic school.
Her strict upbringing nurtured the desire for everything taboo. Entering porn in 2011 as a cam girl, Cindy shot her first hardcore scene in March 2012.
This petite honey loves everything from IR to gangbangs, has an online store, and feature dances, all pretty standard for a porn girl. So what part of her is not typical?
Cindy is a swinger and loves to talk about it.
A Strange Topic
How did she get into swinging?
“It was way before porn,” Cindy begins. In college, she was doing web cam shows and a friend approached her about swinging.
Uncertain at first, her answer was no “because it was a very strange topic for me,” she remembers.
“But I went to a swinger club and it was awesome. People were so nice and I like the environment when it’s just purely sex with nothing involved.”
Cindy is still in the scene today and has expanded her swinger friendships.
Do people in the swinger clubs ever make her uncomfortable?
“Sometimes,” Cindy replies and mentions online swinger sites where her profile can be accessed by people in the community.
“They like to stalk me, but in a swinger club there is security everywhere to prevent that from happening.”
“I tell every couple that I play with that this is just sex, no relationships. In the swing community it is very important that you set that rule because of all the drama that is going on.”
What’s more, there are practicalities everyone observes.
“You tend to show up as couples. You sign up for memberships on a site and you get invited privately so it’s not open for the public. You don’t know where it [the club] is exactly and yes, couples get in for free.”
Singles are not excluded, however.
“Single guy is no problem. Single girls, we call them unicorns. I was a unicorn.”
The atmosphere is congenial.
“It’s definitely a club. People are not afraid to sit down and say, ‘Hi this is my wife, this is my husband,'” Cindy says. If couples like each other, “you can take it to another level. You can go upstairs [to the] playroom.”
“You can just play with whoever you come with.”
On other occasions, she has a different agenda.
“Sometimes I don’t play at the club. The club is where I meet people. If I like them then I go forward to setting up a date, I call it a date, but it’s not.”
In other words, not like we think of dating, Cindy clarifies.
“It’s just sex. I don’t go to dinner, to a movie. I don’t do that,” she insists, because Cindy wants the couples she plays with to stay together.
What about sexual limits like those on a porn set?
Limits can be set, Cindy says. Every couple is different. Some may not like kissing, others may want their spouses in separate rooms or insist they be in the same room, and some people have rules about no pictures.
Her personal rule?
“I’ll only do it with your wife there. I don’t want to break up that marriage.’
In fact, Cindy prefers a threesome where possible.
The Turn On of Being Watched
Has swinging had a positive effect on her porn performances?
“Yes. Being a swinger and moving into porn [was] not a scary thing for me,” Cindy says.
“It’s actually improved my porn performances because when I started swinging I realized I like the turn-on of being watched. I love being in front of people.”
So, does Cindy get nervous on porn set?
No, she says. When there’s group sex in the clubs with people watching and photos being snapped (Cindy has no objections to cameras being present), it’s “essentially is the same thing” as porn except with adult film she becomes an actress.
“People watch me through the camera and I feel very comfortable doing what I’m doing on camera.”
“I was not a confident girl until I started the swinger lifestyle. I was very shy. You read my profile. I grew up in a strict household,” she says.
Cindy’ s parents never encouraged her to be accepting of her sexual self, she adds.
But things are different today.
“I’m more comfortable with my body now. I’m a way more confident girl than I was, let’s say, years before porn.”
Porn is Very Safe
For the most part, an adult film set promotes a protective environment. Does swinging do the same?
“Yes, [but] you have to take care of yourself, to watch out for yourself,” just like in porn, Cindy says.
“Porn is very safe on set,” she asserts, nothing like the “misconceptions” people have about partying and drugs.
“It’s very business-like. You come in, do your work, and you get paid. Everybody is very professional. Everybody always looks out for your interests. But the one who cares most about your interests is yourself. It’s common sense, you got to take care of yourself first.”
Cindy offers what is most important about porn.
“You have to be very comfortable with your own body. You can’t be insecure, you have to know how your body works.”
This leads Cindy Starfall to reveal a personal secret as we close out our talk.
“I’m a sexual person, but I always held it in. I never say it out loud and I was never okay with my body. I always compared myself with other girls, but now I know who I am and I own it. When I see gorgeous girls, I compliment them versus trying to compare myself to them.”
This leads to her final thought.
“Before I got in the business, I make a promise to myself that I’m not going to change who I am because of the industry. I’m still the same person. My swinger friends who have been with me before porn see that. I’m still the same girl. Yes, I am way busier now but I’m still the same, so it doesn’t change me.”
Now that’s healthy indeed!
