I suspect that if the Big Bad Wolf had ever met Tanya Tate at the doorway, her charm and striking good looks would make him take a deep breath and he would accidently burn himself. Either that or her high charged sexual performances would create puffs of smoke out of his mouth for chugging loads of water to cool himself off. This lovely Brit is a star who has a lasting impression on anyone who has seen her in action. Tanya makes everything look so easy and unassuming. These qualities captivate her audience. She makes time go by very quickly. Her hits such as Road Queen 16 and 17, House Hunters 1, and I Came In Your Mom 3 are great examples. Ms. Tate is an adorable fan-friendly favorite who really takes time to get to know them. Moreover, Tanya happens to be the Helen Mirren of porn...classy, elegant, timeless hotness, and a passionate actress.
Hi Tanya, your commanding presence and beauty really capture the viewer's attention when you are on screen. For those fans who are not aware of you, how long have you been in the industry, what have been your most pleasurable moments so far? What has been your least pleasurable?
I have been in the adult industry for 18 months. I've many pleasurable moments, which is probably why I love my job so much. One of my recent pleasurable moments is when I double penetrated myself with toys. It was for website and I was feeling a little daring. This was a new and very exciting experience for me. Now I have been thinking I need to try double penetration for real.
One of the most least pleasurable experiences was having to spend a week with a film crew going around Ireland in a camper van filming my Tanya Tate Sex Tour of Ireland series, with me traveling on a motorcycle. The worst floods in Ireland for 50 years. It was cold, damp, very windy, and many floods. Worst weather conditions for a shoot but in the end it all turned out really well. The actual shooting and scenes were fun. But everything in between was a little much.
How did you get into the adult industry?
Around the summer of 2008 I was working in an office doing admin work and I was really bored. I wanted something more exciting in my life. I watched an adult movie with a guy and I thought "Hey, I could do that..." I done some research, looked in trade magazines and I decided I was going to do it. It was a big decision. I knew that once I signed the model release forms there would be no turning back. I had some professional pictures taken and I sent a very nice email with the pictures to some of the UK companies and they liked me and asked me to come to London and shoot for them. It went from there.
Your remarkable run of strong and sensual performances such as the ones in Road Queen 16 and 17, I Came In Your Mom 3, and Women Seeking Women 64 has put the industry on notice to your incredible talents. You have also proven to them that you have sensational sexual chemistry with your on-screen partners. What traits of a woman do you admire most? What makes a woman sexy? What traits of a man do you admire most? What makes a man sexy?
I like a woman who looks and feels sexy, a woman who is confident with her sexuality. I love to run my hands over a woman's soft smooth body, undress her slowly and feel all her sexy womanly curves. For a man I like someone who is strong, a good 'hard' performer, and will try to find out just what turns me on.
If the other performer is enjoying spending time with me on screen I can always tell by looking into her eyes, this is a big turn on for me, this builds the chemistry. This can help make the scene more sensational.
What was the biggest surprise for you about the adult industry when you started? How has the industry changed over the years?
My first time on set I was really nervous, I had to perform in front of several people. At first I thought this would be difficult for me. Working with friendly professional people definitely helped me when I first started. I didn't realize how much hard work, time and dedication goes into making a movie.
Are there any industry people (actors, actresses, directors, etc.) who you have not had the opportunity to work with yet and want to very badly and why? What would be your dream scene?
I was recently signing at Exxxotica LA. I was hanging out signing at the Fantasy Island both with some really hot stars. I would love to get some girl girl action with Teagen Presley, Kayden Kross & Sunny Leone. All beautiful, sexy girls with a great body, gorgeous smile and
I would love to work with some of the big male stars, Manuel Ferrera, Evan Stone and Randy Spears. All longtime performers, very strong, I would just want them to take me.
Shooting for Axle Braun would be amazing, he produces award winning parodies. I love Andrew Blake's style, artistic and very pretty. My dream scene would to play a secret agent, like Emma Peel from the Avengers. I would go around wearing a skin tight cat suit and high heeled boots seeking out prey, then having my wicked way with them all.
How were you as a kid growing up?
I definitely wasn't shy. When I was a kid my mum used to say if she couldn't find where I was she'd just open the door and listen for my voice because I was always the loudest. I was always on my bike or my roller skates. I was one of those loud kids that would just do anything. I enjoyed school but I was always the one who got in trouble for talking in class. I always used to get my work done, though, it just helped I could multi task very well. Being the oldest of my siblings I have always been independent, which has helped me to get to where I am in my career.
What are your hobbies and interests?
I don't tend to take much time off as I am always stuck to my computer, so when I do I love to do girlie stuff and be pampered. Get a facial, go the spa. I like to look after myself have my hair and nails done. I spend time working out at the gym, after all I have to look good for my fans and for the camera. I also love to go shopping for shoes, lingerie and sexy little dresses. I love lingerie. My fans will send me gifts in the post, I recently got a gorgeous dress and a sexy lingerie set, so sweet of my fans. Since I've been in LA my publicist from The Star Factory has taken me to lots of Hollywood parties and red carpet events. It's been really fun.
What is your favorite thing about being an adult performer?
I get to dress is sexy dresses, elegant lingerie, have my hair and makeup done, then I get to have fun on camera. There are not many people who can say how much they enjoying getting up and going to work every day. Really I am so lucky to be one of the few who really love their job.
Are there any web sites or future projects that you would like to promote? What are you currently working on film wise?
I am working on getting my members website up and running http://www.tanyatate.com/. This will have lots of Tanya Tate stuff that you won't always see everywhere else. It will show exclusive footage of my Tanya Tate casting couch, where fans can apply to try out with me to see if they can make it as a pornstar. I have just been nominated for a Nightmoves Award, Best MILF Performer. This is fan voted so I am asking all of my fans to vote for me http://bit.ly/VoteTanya or VoteTanya.com. Other than that, just keeping busy and make some sexy fun movies!
