Irony could be defined as Bridgette Monet. She's the hottest thing in films today, exuding a steamy frantic sexuality, while claiming she's only in it for the money. Her beauty is awesome, her figure unmatched, with 38 - 26 - 37 dimensions on a five-foot ten-inch frame, yet she sees herself as a shy, maternal career woman.
She admits that she has a bigger than average sexual appetite, yet she's content to sit home in lonely monogamy while her fiance hunts one nighters. Her two most popular films are "I Like To Watch" and "Talk Dirty To Me Two", but she's seen almost no sex films, including her own, stays away while the other actors on the sets are doing their scenes and is famous among porno insiders for her objection to obscene language. She's vixen and schoolmarm, temptress and virgin and it's because of these seemingly irreconcilable differences between her screen and private life that Monet has never consented to be interviewed. Only after agreeing to the guidelines that her words be printed without edit and in context, that foul language be excluded and that her current homebase go unmentioned, was ClassicAdultVideo.com granted this first and only Bridgette Monet exclusive.
As predicted, Bridgette was a perfect lady throughout the interview. She was sweet, clean and polite and answered every question, as she puts it, "with a certain demeanor I like to maintain." She came across not only as the kind of girl you could take home to mother, but as a girl who could be mother, so selfless and moral is she.
We think it's for real. She could never fake that bookish, old-fashioned charm so consistently. But we also feel that the horny, wild woman of the screen is just as legitimately Bridgette, a sort of alter ego freed by the cover of acting. It's probable even that innocent Bridgette needs sexy Bridgette to stay so squeaky clean. Without the release of films all those dark urges would have to bubble over occasionally, making demands that would have to be unhealthily repressed or guiltily expressed.
So do it for the money, Bridgette. Believe you're not gorgeous, not hot, not stiffening the collective cocks of American manhood. And believe that you're not loving every minute of it. We know the truth and we love you as you are.
CAV: When did you decide to go into adult films? How did you decide?
Bridgette: I had gotten started doing some nude modeling and my fiance started doing some too, through an agency, and we just wondered if our agent handled people for adult films too. We asked the agent and he didn't know we were interested in doing films. So David and I stared working in adult films at the same time, working together.
CAV: Would you say that then your fiance was the one who was most interested?
Bridgette: No, not really, it was just sort of a natural progression of what I had been doing with nude modeling, but there was more money involved in movies.
CAV: Were you doing it for the money when you started?
Bridgette: Honestly I can say it's mostly for the money. I am going to school full time and it's my way of financing my way through school.
CAV: What are you studying?
Bridgette: I'm a biology major and I plan on going to medical school.
CAV: I think that's a first. What will your medical specialty be? Urology?
Bridgette: I plan on being a pediatrician or in some kind of sports medicine.
CAV: I take it then that you plan to settle down and have some children?
Bridgette: Yes, I do. Not for some time, though.
CAV: Didn't you first work for Suze Randell under a name different than Bridgette Monet?
Bridgette: I've worked under a lot of different names. It wasn't until I stared work for Caballero Control that they came up with the name for me. It wasn't a name that I decided upon.
CAV: There are an awful lot of women in adult films with French names. Do you actually have any French blood in you?
Bridgette: No, I'm not French at all. I don't even understand French.
CAV: It's said that you will only work with your fiance. Is this true?
Bridgette: I've been very selective. I've only worked with a few other people in the business. It's only been three other guys since I started, John Leslie, Mike Ranger, and one other.
CAV: What is it about those men, or any actor that would make you work with him, breaking your "fiance only" rule?
Bridgette: Probably the way he relates to me. I like a man who treats me like a lady. I don't like people who act like stars. That was the problem with a couple of the other people I worked with. Also I don't like to work with men who are smaller than I am, like John Leslie.
CAV: It's really important to you that a man exceed your height?
Bridgette: Oh, absolutely. I really love tall men.
CAV: What about below the belt. Is size important there too?
Bridgette: Yes, it is. I like a man who's built large. I'm a large person basically and it just fits better all the way around.
CAV: You're not saying that you have a large, ah, orifice, are you?
Bridgette: No, I'm not. I'm saying it just feels better.
CAV: Is your fiance built to specs?
Bridgette: Yes, he is. He's over eight inches long and five around.
CAV: Is that your minimum?
Bridgette: I've never been with someone who was larger than that, but I think so.
CAV: is your decision to work only with your fiance to keep jealousy under control?
Bridgette: That's not it at all. It's just a personal matter. He's been very understanding about it all. I just haven't felt right myself about working with other people and it's not worth it for any price because of the way I feel emotionally about it. I'm really a one man woman.
CAV: Is it true that you don't like people to use dirty language around you on the set?
Bridgette: I don't think that I am prudish by any means, but I do have a certain demeanor that I like to portray and that's one difficulty I've had with the business is the quality of language and just the general idea of everything being dirty or lowlife. I don't appreciate that connotation to the business and that's one of the things I'd like to see changed.
CAV: When you're in bed at home then, what kind of words do you like to hear, what do you say when you're excited?
Bridgette: I like to hear romantic things, of course, but I like to talk dirty sometimes too. It all depends, there are all different sorts of love-making.
CAV: Do you consider yourself to have a particular sexual specialty on the screen?
Bridgette: Not really, no. People have said that I give pretty good head.
CAV: Do you try to give good head?
Bridgette: Yes, I think about it.
CAV: When you and your fiance decided to go into this, did you go home and practice or watch a lot of sex movies to find out how to act?
Bridgette: No, really not at all. It's something you just learn along the way, you practice as you go. You learn what it is the camera men are looking for and what it is the director is looking for and eventually you just learn.
CAV: You are in "I Like To Watch", a film that is doing very well and may be the biggest grosser of the year. They say you are the reason. What makes that film stand out for you? Did you do something different there than you've done in your other films?
Bridgette: I think the impact of the film primarily is that it is a very picturesque film and the photography was pretty extraordinary in some of the scenes. As for me, I did have the lead part, it was my first lead, and I did have more chance to act than in some others, because I had the lead.
CAV: Who did you perform with in that film?
Bridgette: Lisa DeLeeuw, my fiance (David Cannon), and Mike Ranger.
CAV: Do you feel that your acting or your sexual performance was more interesting in that film?
Bridgette: Probably my sexual performance was better. I didn't have to act that much. It wasn't that demanding of a role.
Bridgette: I like to give a good performance while I'm there. I think it's important to be convincing. I think my acting has improved quite a bit since I first started doing loops and sound loops. I see people having trouble giving their lines and I don't want to be like that.
CAV: How do you make your sex scene look good if you find that it's just not working, that you're not into it?
Bridgette: I fin that if I'm not particularly enjoying myself I blank things out, I won't remember what was said or what happened later on.
CAV: Do you often get stimulated while you do your scenes?
Bridgette: Pretty much, for the most part when I'm with my fiance. It's a lot different with him than it is working with others.
CAV: Does he have any secrets for turning you on when he sees you're slow in getting into it?
Bridgette: He talks to me and that helps me to relax. We like to cuddle up a lot between takes and not get too involved with the other people on the set. I'm a lot more comfortable when I can cuddle with him.
CAV: Can you have an orgasm when you do scenes?
Bridgette: Unfortunately, that's one thing I've never been able to achieve.
CAV: You mean on screen?
Bridgette: Uh huh. I do it at home with some regularity.
CAV: What's your favorite way to come?
Bridgette: Probably from oral sex, or from behind is easy.
CAV: Vaginally? Do you do anal?
Bridgette: No. I've tried it but was never able to get very far. I'm just not able to do it.
CAV: Had you had a lot of sexual experience before you met your fiance?
Bridgette: Not really. I'd say that I've had less than ten partners in my life outside of work.
CAV: And how long have you been with your fiance?
Bridgette: Three, no, four years.
CAV: So you were nineteen. Did you lose your virginity long before that?
Bridgette: No, I was eighteen.
CAV: So you packed ten of them into one year. That's not so bad. What did you do, leave home and go crazy?
Bridgette: No, I think I just realized a lot after I lost my virginity and I broke up with the boyfriend I'd been going out with for two years at that point. And then I just decided I ought to get a little experience, that's all.
CAV: And what was the biggest surprise after this prolonged virginity when you finally went out to get experience?
Bridgette: I guess that it didn't mean that much to me to have a lot of partners. Like I said, I'm a one man woman.
CAV: You went with one guy for two years before you went to bed with him?
CAV: And why did you break up with him after you did go to bed? Wasn't he any good?
Bridgette: No, it was time. We'd already broken up and then got back together and it just didn't work out.
CAV: How did you arrive at the idea of nude modeling?
Bridgette: Well, my fiance helped. He told me I had a nice figure and that I could do it. I was tired of the part-time jobs I had and the money was good so I did it.
CAV: So in some ways your boyfriend was your mentor.
Bridgette: He just helped me out.
CAV: He likes to read men's magazines?
CAV: How do you feel when you read men's magazines?
Bridgette: I think they're interesting, but in a way being professional has ruined everything. I'm always looking at everything critically.
CAV: Now you know that she's posed that way to hide her skinny calves instead of to show her beauty?
Bridgette: Exactly! I'm always looking for those kinds of things.
CAV: How id you feel when you first saw yourself on the pages of a men's magazine?
Bridgette: I felt pretty amazed actually and it made me feel funny in a way, but it never really bothered me.
CAV: Did you ever feel insecure about your looks?
Bridgette: I still feel insecure. I have to watch my weight pretty strongly, so I'm always self conscious about it.
CAV: What do you usually weigh? You never look heavy.
Bridgette: I weigh under a hundred and thirty.
CAV: Not bad for five foot ten. How long do you plan to work in films?
Bridgette: I really don't know. A lot of people are complaining about my fiance and I working together so much and saying they can't use us if we have to work together. Caballero Control says they can't use us if we don't work with other people. I don't know how long it's going to last. I don't have any plans of giving it up.
CAV: Will you stop working if you can't work with your fiance?
CAV: You're getting a lot of fan mail, does it turn you on to know that there are men out there fantasizing about you and maybe even masturbating to your image?
Bridgette: I've been exposed to a little of that, because I've been to two video conventions where people came up to me. It's very flattering.
CAV: What would you find most satisfying for a fan to write to you? What would you like to hear?
Bridgette: Probably that he admired my performance, that I'm sexy and I'm beautiful. More that I'm beautiful, and that I'm the kind of person he could relate to outside of the movies.
CAV: Are you excited by the thought of these fans, though?
Bridgette: I've thought about it several times. It's more overwhelming to me probably than anything.
CAV: Has going into films dulled your own at-home sex life?
Bridgette: It hasn't affected us at all, no.
CAV: Has it increased your sexual frequency?
Bridgette: No, I've had a pretty active sex life all along.
CAV: More than once a day?
Bridgette: Many times.
CAV: What's your favorite time of day for sex?
Bridgette: Early in the morning when I first wake up.
CAV: Do you ever go to see your movies in the theater?
Bridgette: I've seen two of them.
CAV: Do you enjoy seeing yourself like that?
Bridgette: I'm always looking for things that are wrong. But I enjoy them.
CAV: I bet your fiance gets excited when he sees you in the movies.
Bridgette: Yes, he does. He had seen movies before that time and it's probable that he had fantasized about me doing movies before I did.
CAV: Had you seen many sex movies before you started making them?
Bridgette: I had seen one. I saw it with a bunch of my college friends and it was called Barbara Broadcast.
CAV: How did you feel about those women who were up on the screen at that time?
Bridgette: I was sexually excited and at the same time horrified.
CAV: What did you look at the most in that film, women, men, cocks, what?
Bridgette: I looked at the women. Some of them were very sexual and exciting to me. And I looked at the men, of course. It was very interesting to watch the actual act of intercourse. I had never seen it actually before like that. I never looked at any magazines that showed it or anything before I'd seen the movie.
CAV: You say that you found the women sexually exciting? Does that mean you do girl/girl scenes?
Bridgette: Oh yes, in just about every film I've made.
CAV: Do you find doing those scenes exciting?
Bridgette: Most of the time I enjoy it. Doing girl/girl scenes is always a low pressure situation compared to working with men.
CAV: Why is that?
Bridgette: Well you don't have to be concerned with him getting a hard-on or keeping it up and you don't have to do insertions, you know. We can relax with each other more or less in a girl/girl.
CAV: What woman have you really enjoyed working with?
Bridgette: I worked with Lisa de Leeuw. she's very good, very professional, really easy to get along with.
CAV: Have you worked with any of the women who are renowned for getting into their girl/girl scenes?
Bridgette: I'd say most of the girls in this business who do girl/girl are into it, enjoy it somewhat.
CAV: Did you have any lesbian experiences before getting into films?
Bridgette: I'd had a little bit, my fiance and I. I went to one big party and we got together with another couple.
CAV: Did you like it? I take it you didn't keep it up.
Bridgette: It was really difficult because everyone was so shy and so afraid of touching each other. We didn't really know each other. It wasn't like a couple that we were friends with already. It was just people getting together to have a party and it was a very awkward situation.
CAV: So you've never been to a place like Plato's Retreat where it's open and relaxed and people are falling on each other all over the place?
Bridgette: No I haven't and I don't think I'd like to try it. I didn't really enjoy the large party that I went to with all those strangers so I don't think I'd do anything like that again.
CAV: Exactly what was it about all those strangers that turned you off?
Bridgette: Just, that you feel so vulnerable, is part of it.
CAV: How do you mean "vulnerable"?
Bridgette: Just like, if a person who you're not very happy to be with is coming on to you, you feel obligated in that situation to make love to them.
CAV: Did you feel that most of the men you met at that swing party were less than desirable?
CAV: Have you done any group scenes in your films?
Bridgette: I've done a couple with me and another girl and my fiance and that's about all. I haven't really done a group.
CAV: Never did any threesomes with your boyfriend and another girl in real life?
Bridgette: No, just that party and the other couple.
CAV: Think it would make you jealous?
Bridgette: Probably not. That's one thing that we have said that we would do in the movies is a threesome with another girl. I don't think it would bother me that much.
CAV: Have you gone your whole life free from jealousy?
Bridgette: I think i've been jealous before.
CAV: What does it take to make you jealous?
Bridgette: Probably if I'm feeling ignored and my fiance goes ahead and sees someone else. There are times when he just says "Goodbye, it's time to go out with the guys" and whatever happens, happens. Now things like that don't bother me very much. But sometimes they start calling on the phone for him to go out with them and that makes me feel jealous. When he's actually planned it.
CAV: So you guys date on the side?
Bridgette: We have occasionally. But I haven't.
CAV: So he just has unplanned encounters?
Bridgette: Yes, I'd say that's probably fair.
CAV: I assume since you refer to this man as your fiance that you plan to get married. Do you plan to keep this one-sided fidelity after you marry?
Bridgette: Well I'm open to whatever he wants to do, because I want him to feel comfortable. I don't want him to feel trapped into a relationship. He's the one who doesn't want that after marriage.
CAV: Let's get this straight. You don't care what he does and he demands that you become monogamous if you marry?
Bridgette: Uh huh. I would like to be monogamous after we got married, but that's the main reason we haven't gotten married is because I want him to feel comfortable with whatever we decide. If he wants to go out with other people I'll be comfortable with it.
CAV: You really knock yourself out being nice to this guy.
Bridgette: I try to, he's pretty important to me.
CAV: Do you think you're primarily a dominant or submissive person?
Bridgette: He's probably more dominant than I am. I'm pretty easy to get along with. But we try an awful lot and we share an awful lot of our household duties. We share everything. There is really not much of one dominating the other.
CAV: But do you ever play any dominant/submissive games?
Bridgette: We've tried just a couple of little silly things, like tying up with rope and different things to the corner of the bed and stuff.
CAV: Who tied who?
Bridgette: We both tried it. It's fun, you know.
CAV: How about spanking?
Bridgette: Not really, no.
CAV: Just tying up?
CAV: Do you have fantasies that go further than you have?
Bridgette: I've had some submissive fantasies, but I don't know how I'd like it in reality.
CAV: Describe your favorite submissive fantasy. How far do you go?
Bridgette: Probably to the point of being hurt. I don't like to be hurt at all. An example of what I'd like? To be forced to spread your legs or whatever. Or being grabbed or tied down or being forced to do whatever the guy wanted but no tot he point of being hurt.
CAV: Do you imagine being tied face up or face down?
Bridgette: I think of being tied on my stomach.
CAV: Because you like being fucked from the rear?
Bridgette: (Very softly) Yes.
CAV: Do you like that because it feels primitive and animalistic?
Bridgette: I think about that, uh huh.
CAV: Was y our fiance the first man you played out these fantasies with?
Bridgette: Yes, it was all just pretty straight sex before that.
CAV: Did you give head before you met your current man?
Bridgette: Yes, I learned that pretty quickly.
CAV: In your first experience with oral sex, were you the one to go down or did a man do it on you?
Bridgette: Someone went down on me first.
CAV: Everyone comments on your beautiful breasts. Are they especially sensitive?
Bridgette: Yes, very.
CAV: What do you like to have done to them?
Bridgette: I like to have them cupped and held and I like to have them sucked and nibbled on lightly.
CAV: How do you like a man to give you head?
Bridgette: I don't know how to respond.
CAV: Do you like him to use his finger along with his mouth?
Bridgette: Yes, I do. I like him to put his finger in me.
CAV: That sounds pretty normal. What do you feel we're not covering in this interview?
Bridgette: The image that this business has is the most important thing to me. It's something that I'd like to see changed and I think it is slowly changing. And I feel there has to be more recognition of what the woman feels actually during these movies and even after they're finished. Practically every girl in the business who I've talked to, I tell them I work with my fiance and they all say "That's wonderful, I wish I could work out something like that." People should realize that a lot of the girls really aren't as turned on as portrayed to be and that they're not as nasty and as dirty and as calloused and cold as they seem to be.
CAV: How do you think the productions could be made more enjoyable for the women working on them, then?
Bridgette: I think you could do a lot if the girls were just introduced to the person they were going to work with before they do the scene. I mean even prior to production, so they can get to know each other.
CAV: Would it have improved your scenes and made you feel better about working with men other than your fiance if you'd met them before hand? Would you prefer to go to bed with them before acting with them?
Bridgette: No, not for my situation, but I do think that most of the other girls would prefer that. When I work with other people, because it's not something I want to feel emotionally involved with, I like it almost cold.
CAV: In keeping with that then, do you prefer that men other than your fiance who you work with do external cumshots?
Bridgette: Probably an external, yes.
CAV: Because it's too personal? With your fiance do you like internals then?
Bridgette: I can be turned on by an external ejaculation and I enjoy internal ones. It doesn't really make a difference.
CAV: What is it you like about watching cumshots?
Bridgette: I don't know, I think mostly I like it on my breasts. I don't like it on my face. I don't mind it from my fiance, but from someone else I just hate it.
CAV: You like him to come on your breasts, huh?
Bridgette: Yes, I do.
CAV: Do you ever do it that way at home?
Bridgette: Yes, we do.
CAV: Do you like your fiance to perform intercourse between your breasts?
Bridgette: Yes, we do that occasionally.
CAV: What do you think is your best film?
Bridgette: I think maybe "Talk Dirty To Me 2" as far as my acting is concerned, but they dubbed over my voice and that made me feel really crummy. I felt like whatever acting I had done was totally erased.
CAV: Why did they dub you?
Bridgette: I did all the lines all through the movie, but then they just took out my voice and put in another voice. It was because I was supposed to be playing a professional type show person and the producers just thought I should have a deeper voice. People always say I sound so young.
CAV: Do you watch your movies on video at home?
CAV: To turn yourselves on or for critical appraisal?
Bridgette: A little bit of both. Watching myself is not exciting, so I watch my fiance.
CAV: How does it make you feel when you watch your fiance having sex with you on the screen?
Bridgette: It makes me feel very lucky. Very, very lucky.
CAV: Henry Pachard has stated that the he made his latest film because of you and you gave a great performance.
Bridgette: I enjoyed doing my sex scene in "Babylon Blue" because Henri Pachard just pretty much let us go and do what we wanted to do. We prefer working that way. It's a lot more natural when there's not a lot of starting and stopping in between to destroy the continuity of our scene.
CAV: We can assume that you had a good time doing that scene then?
Bridgette: Yes, I was into it.
