Exclusive: Right In Front Of My Salad’s Nikki V. Reveals How She Became This Summer’s Biggest Gay Porn Star

Posted August 5, 2017 by with 46 comments

0014Last weekend, arguably the most popular meme to ever originate from a gay porn scene was born when the entire internet fell in love with actress Nikki V.’s performance in a gay porn scene from Men.com. Specifically, it was her ad-libbed dialogue upon realizing that her husband was having sex right in front of her, as she exclaimed: “Right in front of my salad?”

Nikki’s role as someone who’s seemingly more concerned with the dignity of her salad than the fact that her husband is cheating on her became an instant meme, both for the absurd humor and her pitch-perfect performance. Now, in her first-ever interview, actress Nikki V. tells Str8UpGayPorn what it was like to film the scene, what it’s like to go viral, where the line “right in front of my salad” came from, and more!

Str8UpGayPorn: Hi Nikki! What was the casting process like for this scene?
Nikki V.: There actually wasn’t a casting call for the project. I found the gig on Craigslist and then submitted for it.

So, no audition?
No, I did not have to audition for it. I applied, and I guess they liked what they saw.

Were you familiar with Men.com or the actors in the scene, or any gay porn at all?
I wasn’t familiar with them, no. And, I had never watched or knew anything about gay adult films before this.

unnamedThe type of scene you were in, where a wife discovers her husband having gay sex, has become extremely popular. What do you think of that theme?
Honestly, my first thought was ‘this is going to be so cool.’ And, then it became hilarious. I had a very hard time trying not to laugh too much. I was seriously into my character.

A lot of people keep their adult work private, but have you told friends or family about how popular you’ve become?
I do keep some things to myself, but most the time I don’t care who knows what. I’m pretty much an open book, and I don’t live my life based off what others have to say or what they think, for that matter. I have shared it with my peers and family, and they think it’s totally hilarious.

How long did filming take on the scene?
My filming on the scene didn’t take long at all. Maybe, like, five to ten minutes.

nikki6Wow! Have you acted in a role like this before? Was it at all awkward for you, given the sexual nature of the scene?
I have never acted in a role like this one before. It wasn’t awkward at all, and I felt very comfortable. Everything was so natural.

Was there a script for the scene?
There was a script, but I was only an extra, so I only had a few lines. For most of it, I added my own lines.

So, “right in front of my salad?” was just you ad-libbing?
Yeah, it was something that I just said, and it all just flew out of my mouth, right along with “you guys are fucking gross!” I was supposed to scream and just storm out, but it was all in the moment, and that’s why I think people feel the rawness of it. They know it’s real.

The timing and delivery was perfect. How many takes did you do, and did anyone on set have any idea that what you were doing would go viral?
I did two or three takes. We knew it was funny and we were all laughing, but we had absolutely no idea it would turn into this!

nikki4Have you been trained in comedy or other types of acting?
No, never had any training. But, I have had other minor roles. I’d definitely like to keep exploring and see where this goes. I like to make others laugh, so we will see.

Would you do another gay adult scene, if the right offer came along?
Yes, absolutely. I already got a call back to do another! I am very, very excited.

What has it been like these past few days for you personally, becoming a meme?
It’s been so cool to see how many people actually liked my scene, and people are sending me very encouraging messages and comments. I’m totally in love with the little fame I do have now, and I’m truly grateful for all the shares, likes, and comments.

Finally, that salad you’re eating in the scene was supposed to have been made by a professional chef. So, was the salad any good?
Yes! That salad was the bomb! I actually wanted to take it with me after my scene was over.

    You know it’s a sad day in the porn industry when you’re more excited to see a woman eating salad than g4p pornstars.

    I hope she starts directing for men tbh. Nica and Duckface better watch out.

    • WhimsyCotton

      I don’t know if it’s just me, but at some point, I started enjoying porn for more than just self-pleasure. Watching the Czechhunters and Out In Publics and Sketchy Sexes and Diego Sans’ sister made gay porn occasionally entertaining from a comedic perspective.

      It probably has to do with following porn blogs where you get aspects of the porn world other than just the finished product.

      • binchurood

        Diego Sans’ sister? Huh? Fill me in please?

        • WhimsyCotton

          Diego Sans played the role of his wife in like three scenes. Quite hilarious.

    • Targareyn

      I love this scene. Gillian Anderson was FLAWLESS in this role. She is such a gift…

      • Miloš Del Rey

        She’s completely amazing, I’m so happy the show has more seasons being work on. Everything about it was on point.

        • Targareyn

          Right? It was so good. The casting was spot on, especially with ol Shadowmoon. Every single time Shadow’s fine ass was on my scream I was in my living room like… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b2f8e15f4492cd04ee726f6056216f8cd46e8dbf33f7531255b74bf6c7d2075a.gif

            You’ve seen his JO video, right? Stunner!

          • Scrapple

            Whittle is not little. He’s got the face, body, dick, ass and that accent. I can’t remember if he sings too, but that’s already way too many gifts for a mere mortal.

          • scooternva

            HuhwhatwhoWHAT?! Excuse me, I’ve got some googling to do.

          • Nathan

            Ha, you’re welcome.

      • Scrapple

        She was. I didn’t even realize it was her at first.

    • c_find

      She definitely is gorgeous and sexy as hell.

  • Marik Ishtar

    Keep up the hustle, honey! I wish you all the best.

  • Scrapple

    I love the fact that she already has a porny sounding name. And Miss Thing is serving Balsamic Vinaigrette realness in that dress. If a woman is going to get some shine off appearing in gay porn, at least let it be a pretty one.

    Lmaooo @ “from ‘Right In Front Of My Salad'”

  • Javier Smith

    Looking forward to Nikki reacting to different porn scenes in the future :)

    in other news, Porter tweeted a picture of an androgynous guy saying how could he become that gorgeous.
    I replied “Keep eating salads”.
    He replied “I didn’t eat the salad – maybe you should watch the scene again”
    I replied that I saw it and now I could only eat meat.
    Porter then blocked me on Twitter because he thought I was insulting him and/or because he realized i wasn’t white.

  • You never know

    Why do we keep putting women in gay porn? Does that not defeat the purpose?

    • AbsolutelyFabulous

      Well you see, this blog and its followers would agree with you in all other cases, but because this lady happens to be black they all just excuse it and let it slide.

      Guess they’ve been sipping on some double standards recently.

      • nick

        Yeah, i’m sue you’re right, it’s all about political correctness, not just having a laugh.

      • Maximus

        The fuck does her race have to do with anything?

    • onyx081

      Why do they keep putting straight men in gay porn? Does that not defeat the purpose?

      • a b

        Preach

      • scooternva

        YAAAASSSS

    • OneOfTheManyChris

      Men just repeats whatever is selling best x100. Presumably someone is watching. Closeted husbands who are exciting by the idea of their wives storming out and letting them fuck whomever the want? Note that they never show the wife taking him to the cleaners in divorce court, the sobbing kids, the parents disowning him, etc.

  • Watari

    That interview couldn’t have been more satisfying. Thank you.

  • stephen

    I hope she gets a whole spin-off franchise – My Husband’s Brothers Salad, My Stepdad’s Salad, etc

    • a b

      You’re thinking this is IconMale now?

  • peter

    Don’t belong to men and Porter Trump is always a deal-breaker.

  • Maximus

    Ooh, bitch! She sure got that Nikki Minaj body! Miss V. seems like a good time gal. She’s absolutely invited to kiki, especially if she continues to add actual entertainment value to MEN scenes.

  • Marcus Collack

    Body-Ody-Ody!!

  • Stuart

    You need to book her for next years str8upgayporn awards, at the very least have a “Right in front of my salad?” award for Best Comedy role in porn (scripted or ad-libbed).

  • Hari Kalyan

    She’s lovely! I can’t wait for her next scene. And umm… can i get a byline for tracking her down? ;-P

  • R.A.M.J
