Today I've the pleasure of interviewing one of the most exciting women in the adult industry. She is someone who is as lovel as she is beautiful. She's the amazing Tegan James.
JJ: Welcome to Inside the Porn. It's a pleasure to have you with us today.
What got you into the adult industry?
Tegan: I always wanted to be a Playboy Playmate and dreamed of entering the industry that way. Three years ago, I decided I would start my career doing G/G scenes, but backed out. I’m thankful that I decided to get into the industry now.
JJ: When you first make the decision to get into the industry it's terrifying however you've made the right decision to get into it as you are a great addition.
What's the best thing about the industry?
Tegan: The best thing about the industry is how freeing it has been for me. For the first time, I feel like I can be myself that’s the most amazing feeling. Additionally, I love the people I‘ve worked with. Everyone is very friendly and fun. I really love being in the adult industry.
JJ: The adult industry is an insutry with lots of amazing people in it. Too many people don't realise that.
What's the worst thing about the industry?
Tegan: I haven't encountered any negative experiences in the industry and feel so lucky to have worked with so many amazing performers, makeup artists, companies and film crews. Everyone has been so welcoming, kind, encouraging, and I’ve learned so much from every single person that has crossed my path.
JJ: What's the funniest thing to happen while working?
Tegan: I haven't had a funny thing happen to me yet. By nature, I’m very silly, so fun times always occur at every shoot.
JJ: What are you up to work wise at the moment?
Tegan: I just signed with a new talent agency, OC Modeling. I really believe that they will take my career to the next level. I’ve been working with a ton of studios that have been on my wish list like Evil Angel, Girlfriends Films, and many others. I’m just trying to work as much as possible and get my name out there.
JJ: You've worked with some great companies and I'm sure you're about to explode to the next level.
Where is the best place for people follow you online?
Tegan: Twitter at @teganjamesxxx or Instagram at @officialteganjame. Look for my official site www.teganjames.com to launch by the end of the year.
JJ: I'm sure people will be joining your website when it launches as its going to be amazing.
What's the best thing about sex?
Tegan: Everything. I love how sex can be different every time. It can be sensual, intimate, rough, and no experience is the same, not even with the same partner.
JJ: What are your biggest turn-ons?
Tegan: I love kissing, clit teasing, dirty talk, having my pussy licked, having a rock hard cock slowly enter my pussy and some light choking.
JJ: Well I've made a note of those things for when you finally realise I'm the man of your dreams haha.
The question we are dying to know the answer to now is what's your favorite movie?
Tegan: My two favorite movies are completely different genres. I love The Maltese Falcon, because I love Film Noir and Humphrey Bogart. My second favorite is Beetlejuice. I love Tim Burton and the scores from his movies are so magical.
JJ: Wow two fantastic choices. The Maltese Falcon is a favourite of mine too and you can't beat Beetlejuice for true comedy.
What's your favorite holiday destination?
Tegan: It will always be Hawaii. I spent many Christmas vacations with my parents in Hawaii. I will always have warm memories of Christmas in Hawaii.
JJ: Hawaii is somewhere I love. It's a magical place.
Tell me one thing about yourself that people would never know by looking at you?
Tegan: Well, here are a few. I love to read books on Psychology and the human mind. I’ve always been very interested in how our perceptions in life make us view the world in a specific way. I played the piano from the age of 5 to 17. I’m also an artist and grew up painting, drawing, and sculpting. I always thought I would have my work exhibited in a big modern art museum. I love abstract art and creating abstract art that captures our feelings and thoughts.
JJ: It's clear you're a very creative person. I'm sure that one day you'll have your work exhibited. You're youn and I'm sure you'll achieve that goal someday.
What's been your biggest achievement in life or work?
Tegan: I have many achievements that I am proud of. The two that come to mind are in sports. I ran two half two marathons the first year that I started running. I also placed in the top five of a bikini competition and became a nationally qualified fitness competitor.
JJ: Wow they are some great achievements. You obviously have some real determination and commitment to be so fit.
What's the most challenging thing you've overcome?
Tegan: Entering the adult industry. I had to get over some left over shame that I felt for being the sexual being that I am. I‘m sexually very open and like trying new things, plus I love sex which isn’t seen very positively in society. I feel very liberated being in the industry and am happy with my choice of entering adult.
JJ: It's great that the adult industry has given you the outlet to go and be the real you. I know many people in the industry who feel the same.
What's the best thing a fan has ever done?
Tegan: My fans are so supportive—they help market me, buy me gifts, and encourage companies to book me. I love how supportive and encouraging they are. I’m thankful for my devoted fans!
JJ: What's one bit of advice for anyone wanting to get into the adult industry?
Tegan: Make sure it’s something you really want to do. Once you’ve even done one scene, there’s no turning back. Be prepared that people will pass judgment, so you need to be strong. And, don’t do anything on camera that you’re uncomfortable with—it will change your experience and it will show through when people watch your scenes.
JJ: That's great advice. I think it's something everyone should consider carefully.
What do you think you'll do if you leave the industry?
Tegan: I would start my own online fitness company. I was a fitness competitor and love helping others achieve their fitness and health goals. I have helped many people either achieve their fitness goals for sports and in losing weight and becoming healthy again.
JJ: I have no doubt that if you did that you'd be very successful. You have the right personality to get the best out of people.
Finally, what's the weirdest rumour you've heard about yourself?
Tegan: I haven't heard any rumours about myself yet. I’m curious what the rumour will be.
JJ: I'm sure there will be rumours at some point but I can guarantee they'll be born out of jealousy and you'll rise above them.
Thank you so much for being so amazing and lovely and being so open. I look forward to seeing more of your work soon.
