Hiya Sophia Santi

I spoke with Digital Playground founder Samantha Lewis
and the company’s newest contract persona, Sophia Santi.

The way one usually talks with a DP functionary is with
someone else listening in, like Mary Hatch’s mother in
It’s A Wonderful Life, so I was not surprised
when Sam quashed all my attempts to ask Sophia about soybeans
and getting in on the ground floor of the new plastics
industry from right here in Bedford Falls.

GP: Samantha, I always liked the webcast DP Tonight. It was where I first met Kiki D’aire, Self-Hating Lew, Penthouse Pet Sam Phillips, Jesse Jane, and that couch. When will it return?

SL: We’re revamping it now. When Joone
is through editing Pirates in the fall, that is going to
be his main priority. We want to up the professionalism
of the show.

GP: But I liked the couch. I thought it
had a nice, homey, musty feel to it.

SL: Well, we’re looking for a new space
that will accommodate a bigger studio.

GP: What will the new format be like?

SL: We’ll probably do
them every two weeks, and have the contract stars rotate
hosting duties.

Samantha proceeded to tell me how great Sophia was, how
beautiful, kind, thrifty, clean, and reverent. I believed
everything I heard. Why would she lie? I thought.

Sophia Santi is 23 and, as an excellent article in XBiz
pointed out, Canadian. But I decided to probe deeper.

GP: Sophia, where are you from, exactly, in Canadia?

SS: Winnipeg, but I moved to Vancouver.
I moved to Arizona when I was 18

GP: How long have you been Sophia Santi?

SS: For about two weeks. I was Natalia Cruze
for (Digital Playground’s) Posh Kitten and Jack’s
Playground 32
, but I signed a contract with
them in between Posh and Jack’s, so when the movies are released
I’ll be credited as Sophia Santi.

Santi joined the business from Vancouver in 2002 and then
moved to LA with her manager. She made the cover of Penthouse
that year and was runner-up for Pet of the Year in 2005.
Lewis said that part of Santi’s promotions will be cross-pollenated
with Penthouse.

GP: Have you met all the other contract
superstars like (I am) Teagan Presley, Devon, Jesse
Jane, and Janine?

SS: I’ve only met Jesse Jane. She’s super

GP: Do you know that she’s had people ki
– ? Ah forget it.

SS: What?

GP: Did you have a big introductory pillow
fight with all the other girls?

SS: Not yet – but do you want to come?

GP: Yes. I shall be the Pillowfight Coordinator.
Tell me about your contract. How long is it?

SS: I signed a non-disclosure agreement,
so I can’t really talk about it. It’s for quite a bit of

Digital Playground publicist Adella had said earlier
that it was unknown whether Santi would be exclusively
shooting girl/girl scenes. The porn progression usually
goes like this: I won’t do men, (all right I’ll do men),
I won’t do interracial men (all right I’ll do interracial
men), I won’t do anal (Hey this isn’t bad Gram), I won’t
marry the guy who runs your affiliate program.

GP: I am a man. Will you do scenes with

SS: Yes, but I love women. I’ll do anything
these people tell me.

GP: Don’t say that too loud.

SS: Seriously, I’m a very independent
person, but I like structure. So whatever they ask me to
do …

GP: “Wow.”
What do you get up to when you’re not being a hot porn
chick professionally?

SS: I like reading. I will read the cereal
box at breakfast if there’s nothing else. And I like natural

GP: When your DP contract expires when
you are fifty or sixty, can you imagine traveling around
the country talking about sex-positive issues, ala Nina
Hartley and Annie Sprinkle?

SS: I would like to have my doctorate
in natural medicine –

Santi’s phone goes out.
I call back and Samantha tells me that Sophia Santi is
beautiful, charming, and sexy.

GP: Adella told me that you’re an all
Macintosh house there at Digital Playground.

SL: Well, we have one web designer on
a PC waiting for Macs to go Intel, and our accounting department
is on a PC, but we’re mostly Macs.

GP: This has nothing to do with anything.

SL: Sophia Santi is lovely.

Digital Playground will be building a site for Sophia,
who arrived at her name after a brainstorming session with
Samantha and Joone.

GP: What about your old life as Natalia
Cruze? What about your websites?

SS: Those are not my websites. I never
made a cent from them. Someone just took my name and made
money from it.

Adella had said earlier that Sophia owns the name Sophia
Santi, which is trademarked.

GP: Do you believe that shooting porn
can coexist with your philosophies of natural healing?

SS: Totally. The Ayurvedic teachings and
Tantric teachings let us know the body is beautiful and
that communicating that way is good.

GP: Is Digital Playground going to buy
you a Hummer 2?

SS: I’d rather have an S-Class.

Sophia has been a fan of Janine for several years, and
it will be with Janine that she will shoot her first feature
as Sophia Santi next month. The project is as-yet-untitled.
Janine is the other DP star with a tattoo. Santi herself
has a dragon on her back.

GP: It’s a leap for Digital Playground
to hire tattoo girls. That is a bad-ass dragon.

SS: I’m trying to look badder than I am.

GP: But when you did car shows and Telemundo
events –

SS: All the Mexican guys loved me.

GP: Have Sam and Joone showed you Contract

SS: No.

GP: You’ll like it. Here is a limerick I
have composed for this occasion:

While making a wad of your panty

I said thus to Sophia Santi:

“You might as well lose

The Natalia Cruze

And just become Mrs. Ponante.”

SS: I need to go.
