LOS ANGELES – For more than a decade, office worker Rebecca has been moonlighting in amateur porn via her own website, Encouraged by a supportive husband, Rebecca diligently shoots new porn each and every week, without exception.

That’s what YNOT calls devotion to duty … although it may just be that Rebecca really enjoys her second job. We caught up with her on a coffee break to learn more. Do you actually work in a real-world office? If so, does anyone know about your other life?

Rebecca: I do work in an office. In fact many of my longtime members have noticed that I’m hard to reach at work during the day. It also is the reason why I don’t do online chat, because I found that my long work hours and my being on the West Coast was just too hard.

Early on, I ran into a colleague at a swinger party. His wife hit it off with my husband, and we eventually told them about my site. We have kept each other’s secret and have a good relationship at the office.

I dress pretty conservatively at work. In fact, we have some pretty hot female assistants in the office who’d look pretty good naked on the web.

Is your website a hobby, then?

I have a real life and consider this to be simply a hobby. Rebecca’s Office did not grow out of a professional aspiration of mine, but more as a way to escape the rigors of the everyday world and to explore my true female desires.

Why an office setting?

The office was originally a concept and theme I wanted to use to differentiate myself from others — you know, the naughty co-ed, the sexy librarian, etc. I also wanted it to be reflective of who I am and give people something to relate to in their everyday lives. Who doesn’t want to screw that beautiful secretary, the girl in the cube next door or that bitchy female [vice president] who thinks she’s better than you?

I really had no idea how long my office doors would be open; no idea that 10 1/2 years later I’d still be doing this. Kind of funny, but many people don’t stay in their real jobs that long.

One of the things I do like about the [office] concept is that I can bring myself into this hobby. I’ve always been a tireless worker; a bit of a nerd. I wasn’t going to do this halfway.

In the real world, I have a couple dozen people who rely on me at our company. I treat my fans just like my co-workers. I try to show up every day and take care of my responsibilities. In the real world, it is to put food on the table and money in their bank accounts. In this world, it is to put a smile on their face and a stiff rod in their pants.

Why did you start performing in porn online?

A bet, really. My husband and I got into swinging because I was just not feeling confident about my body after years of marriage. He told me I was beautiful, but that is what husbands are supposed to say, right?

We first put some photos up in a chat room, and guys really liked them and kept asking for more. Well, we took lots of photos for our swinger dating profile and then we started thinking that all these photos were being enjoyed, so why not put them somewhere else? The next thing you know, I’m asking around and I’m putting all my photos up on a password-protected site.

I’ve had great fans from the start, and all the great comments they send me each and every day has become addicting. I can’t stop! I mean, what woman doesn’t want to come home from work each day to tons of emails saying how beautiful or sexy [people] think I am?

In the everyday world, I don’t dress that provocatively. I don’t get catcalls from construction workers on break, but I do online. I love it. My fans — or should I say virtual employees? — are awesome.

Is it true you never take a vacation from Rebecca’s Office?

In more than 10 years of doing this, I have updated every single week. That’s right. I have an incredible work ethic. I’ve never taken a week off. That is what we do at Rebecca’s Office: a no vacation policy!

Seriously, I offer photo shoots of 30-50 photos as well as video clips, usually of me and one of my interracial lovers. At 2,500 photos a year for more than 10 years, that’s more than 25,000 photos.

My photos and videos are not professional nor are they brightly lit like real professionals [would do]. Ever try and have sex with hot lights shining on you? It is hard to relax.

Each of my sexual encounters is real. There is minimal staging. No acting at all. Over the last couple of years I have started making my videos available for mobile devices, as well.

Additionally, my provider, Dreamnet, makes the content of other Dreamnet girls available when you purchase a membership from me. So if you get tired of me one week, you can look at a redhead or a blonde.

Since this the social generation, I can easily be contact via Twitter, Facebook and my blog. Or you can just send me a good-old-fashioned email. All responses are 100-percent me.

Who shoots your content for you?

I have a girlfriend who is a photography hobbyist, and she does all my photography. My husband used to do it and occasionally still helps — we’ll take photos while on vacation, for example — but usually I will get together with my girlfriend and she takes them.

When it comes to actual sexual encounters, my husband used to [photograph those] exclusively, but I couldn’t relax with him around and he said it was too much for him to watch and film at the same time. Also, when working with other amateurs, many guys don’t want to be on camera.

Believe me, not everybody wants to be recognized on film, and some guys get freaked out when someone is circling the bed and taking photos. This is why many of my encounters are taken from a tripod and are lit in low light. Nobody can get real romantic when spotlights are on you.

You are watching me make love quietly, and what you are hearing are real emotions. Even when my girlfriend has done some video work, she said she has been tempted to join in because the action looks so good and hot.

Has your content evolved over the years?

Oh yes. When I started, video was very minimal. We eventually got into video, then had to get a better camera for both still and video shoots.

Also, I originally told my husband I would not do bareback or any kind of person-to-person sex on the site. Now I do gonzo scenes, interracial scenes and gangbangs. In most of the new things on my site, you can tell I’m doing it as part of my natural interaction with my boyfriends.

I’ve also evolved into social media with my online accounts and blog, which allows me to communicate with my members in another fashion on a daily basis.

How do you keep your customers paying?

I don’t know. I guess this is a relationship.

If you are mean to your friends or don’t talk to your friends, they disappear. Well, the same goes with my followers … er, employees. I try to check up on them. I don’t just post photos online and walk away. I respond personally to all emails, some tweets and some Facebook postings.

I’m a real person. I’ve even played Farmville on Facebook with some members.

In the real world of marketing, they say it is cheaper to acquire a loyal customer than a new customer. Once you are a member, I try to be responsive and proactive. Many members are surprised to get an email from me.

How has your on-screen life affected your marriage?

It has improved my marriage, believe it or not. To do what I do online requires trust and communication, so we talk all the time. I might say we have better communication than regular couples. He has said I am sexier in my attitude than ever before, yet I am still innocent in the same way.

I’d say the only thing that has evolved is that we rarely sleep with each other, just to keep it honest. He’s had a couple of girlfriends over the years, and I have had some pretty steady boyfriends These outside relationships are healthy and have formally communicated boundaries.

So in summary, the understanding of who we are as individuals and our communication with each other has improved immensely. Most of all, the respect for each other is beyond comprehension.
