Layton Benton held several retail jobs at Walmart, Toys ‘R’ Us and Radio Shack. Talking about these early years in her April 2014 Adult DVD Talk interview, Layton Benton divulged that; “I had a bunch of retail jobs. When I got into porn, I was actually working at Radio Shack. And I was dancing too. I started dancing before I knew there was such a things as feature dancing and clubs paid you to come out. I also worked at Toys ‘R Us and Walmart! I’ve always kind of had a job but I always wanted to make a bigger name for myself”.
She first started working in the adult film industry in late 2011 during which time she also started performing as an exotic dancer. When Layton Benton was asked about her reasons for performing in porn during her April 2014 Adult DVD Talk interview, she explained how; “I actually did porn before I started dancing. When I first started stripping, I was so scared. I started at Déjà vu in Hollywood and it was so intimidating for me. But now, I’m so comfortable with it…I got into it [porn] because I enjoy having sex. I feel you shouldn’t be doing porn if you don’t enjoy it. I’ve seen so many girls come and go. They come in, make some money then leave. I enjoy having sex so I figured why not get paid for it!”. After all, as Layton Benton stated in her May 2014 Men’s Mag Daily interview; “You can definitely say that I was sexual. I was adventurous about sex and I like to try new things…I actually wanted to do it [porn] since I got out of high school so it was definitely something that was on my mind. The story isn’t that exciting but I always watched porn and it always turned me on so that’s why I kind of decided to pursue it”.
