Gorgeous blonde, Kagney Linn Karter got her start as a house dancer in Missouri and was soon crowned the state’s Déjà Vu Showgirl of the Year in 2007. She then moved to California to pursue an acting and singing career. While continuing to dance in California, she eventually got into modeling and, after signing with the agency LA Direct Models, Kagney entered the adult film industry in 2008. Her career immediately took off. Kagney’s first scene was with Johnny Sins for Naughty America and she made the cover of New Sensations’ “She’s Got Boobs!” In 2009, she was chosen as the June Penthouse Pet of the Month, and appeared on the covers of Hustler in April and Adult Video News in June. They following year she was awarded “Best New Starlet” by AVN. Kagney has been on the Xcitement cover one previous time in May 2010. We welcome her back.
Let’s start off with dancing. You got your start house dancing with Deja Vu?
I just walked into a strip club, said, “I need a job,” and they hired me. That was about 12 years ago. I never looked bak.
Do you have any advice for young women just starting out house dancing?
Yes. Save your money! Do something positive with your money and have a constant feeling about it.
Have you seen many changes in clubs?
I see more clubs starting to get spinning poles. That’s where the fun’s at! If you don’t have a spinning pole, get with the program, it’s 2017! When I started out it was good. It’s ok now but there are all these lawsuits. It’s kind of tight with the dancer today. They are making it difficult for people to make money. In some places the liquor laws have gotten weird. Some of the clubs have tight rules and you have to be careful not to step on anybodies toes. It’s all about adapting. You have to find ways to adapt.
Today you are a sought out Feature Dancer. What can fans expect at you stage shows?
I don’t do things fancy smancy. I don’t do fire but I do pole tricks. I love to get close and personal with the audience because the guys like that. And I like to make contact. I like to do games like “Rides for Five” and “Kooterball.” I get the audience invloved so that they are part of the show. That’s really what I like.
Do you have many costumes?
I like to dress in black. I have black leather, black patent leather, gun metal colors. I have different belts that I wear too.
You were just at Sapphires in New York City.
I love that club. It’s a great club and the DJ is really cool. Sapphires has me out about two or three times a year. It’s always a really good crowd where you make money. It fills up, the guys show up, they like to see the girls and they spend money. It’s fun and it all makes sense.
Do you like travel?
Yes I do. I like to get out in the day, sometimes walk around, but if it’s a short trip I might just rest up.
I have that down. I get in the seat, get comfortable and start napping. I wake up and we’re there!
You are one of the prettiest adult stars – but I guess you hear that all the time!
Oh my gosh, stop it. Thank you.
And you also have fantastic boobs…
Yes, they are holding up.
Do you mind when the guys stare at your boobs when they talk to you?
I was kind of young when I got them and I love them. I got to be myself. I could never take my boobs off because that wouldn’t be me either. I’ve got to keep them now, they make me money and they are beautiful. Yes, I’m happy to have people stare at them because it was my choice to get them.
I’m not sure which I like better – you face or your boobs, I don’t know!
Well that’s a compliment, thank you.
OK, so what’s you favorite body part?
I would say my face. I’m fortunate to have a beautiful face and great teeth.
Do you have a least favorite?
Oh no, I like all of me.
You transitioned from dancing to film, how did that come about?
From dance, I kind of just added the filming. It was just an easy transitition, alright, OK, what’s the next move? Let’s make some films here and make a make a name for myself. I tried that and that worked out.
Do you recall your first time in front of the camera?
Oh my gosh. I was just natural. I’ve always been comfortable with myself. At that point I was just ready to go. I’m probably more uncomfortable now than then. I wanted to get as much attention as I could possibly get and I wanted to get my name out. I wanted to make as much money as I could and break into the industry.
You were an immediate sensation, winning Best New Starlett in 2010. That was fast.
That was great, yes. It was awesome. It was seven years ago now. That was cool.
In 2012 you won and Urban X award for “Best Anal”. Can you tell us about that?
It was an interracial scene. I was never shy. I like having anal, I like having sex on camera. I like having sex in general. I’m good at it. When I get on set to work I don’t make demands, I don’t just look at the money. I put that all aside and just enjoy myself, I don’t have a boy friend. I do like to have an orgasm and that could why my scenes win awards because they are real.
And you you won an AVN Fans Award for “Best Boobs.”
Yes that was in 2014. The fans vote, they cast their votes, I got the most votes so I won that award. It’s different because it’s from the fans perspective and they chose me.
Today the world revolves around social media, do you love it? hate it?
It’s a good way to promote and network. It’s a means of making extra money. With the adult industry you are just putting yourself out there in more of a naked way. It’s not a love or hate thing. I just kind of move on with my ins and outs on that. In one sense I am an adult actress who takes of my clothes and gives people orgasms. Sometimes its a little bit difficult to get respect from fans as they don’t always understand that. You need to take that professionally so It’s always been a challenge to get people to understand that it’s a business. It’s something they can never have. It’s something they just can’t get. It’s giving an orgasm in a non-contact situation and that’s really difficult. You always have to be professional and project the proper image. The challenge is to keep a professional standpoint in a business that always isn’t so professional.
How often do you shoot new scenes? How often do you film?
I film two or three times a month, maybe more. maybe less. Sometimes I’ll shoot as much as ten scenes in a short period of time and then others will shoot much less.
You’ve filmed for almost every major studio in the business, right?
Yes I shoot with everyone. I don’t like to be restricted.
Let’s talk about some recent releases. Evil Angel,”Rectal Workout #3″ with Michael Adriano.
That’s the most recent anal scene that I did. It’s a great anal scene with some gaping involved. It’s all anal, no vaginal at all. It’s a sexy scene. I really enjoyed it and I’m sure the viewers will too. It’s only been out a month and they are eating it up already.
Team Skeet, “Dyked.”
Oh yes, That was the most recent girl girl scene I did. It was real sexy. Her name was Eliza, a real cutie. She was so sweet, such a sweetheart. I was the older one and she was the younger one. I was the more dominant one. We had a real fun time doing a lesbian scene.
“Plump Pantyhose” with Brazzers
Yes Jules Jordan. Some gaping, squirting, anal and for the guys who like pantyhose there’s a ripped pantyhose scene.
How do you like you sex, do you have a favorite position?
I like whatever position I’m doing. I used to like what made me cum, but as I like so much sex. I like every position. I can get comfortable enough to have a climax in any position at this point. Yes I really enjoy it all.
Do you prefer one on one or threesomes and gangbangs?
I do like one on one. But I do like my DPs, DPs are fun. I’m not a DP person all the time, but when I do get my DP scene, I get very excited. I do prefer one on one because it’s easiest to put all my attention on one person. When you are dividing it up, you don’t know where the energy is going to go. The main part of having sex is to not having awkwardness, it’s to flow easy. I have great threesome too.
And now for some random questions. What’s the first thing you do when you wake up?
I brush my teeth, I get dressed.
What’s for breakfast?
Are you a day person or a night person?
I’m a day walker.
Indoors or outside?
I like outside.
Do you like the beach?
Love the beach!
What’s the best beach in LA area?
It’s going to be Malibu.
Favorite way to relax?
Netflix for sure.
I go to a pole gym. I take pole dancing lessons there. And I love it, it’s like the best workout ever. I also workout at home.
I fly (laughs)! I can’t stand it. I hate it, but I don’t get caught up in it too much.
A friend comes to LA for the first time, where would you take them?
I would take them to the Santa Monica Pier and Venice Boardwalk.
At night to go clubbing?
I don’t do the club scene much anymore, but I would say Hollywood.
Someplace you would like to go that you haven’t been?
Favorite recent movie?
Guardians of the Galaxy!!! It was so good. You are going to love it. I had to go back and see the first one.
