Interview with Shay SightsBACKGROUND
Hi Shay, thanks for taking the time to do an interview with PinkWorld. We'll start out with the basics. Where are you from and what was it like growing up there?
I grew up in Vancouver, B.C, CANADA. I had an amazing childhood and I'm still very close with 2 of my friends from school in Vancouver.
What are some of your favorites things from back then?
My favorite childhood memories are spending time with my father skiing. I trained and raced at an early age for Blackcomb Mountain and we travelled all over to various races and had such an amazing time. My father is responsible for instilling focus and drive in me and is the main reason why I've been so successful.
Nice answer! What about high school, were you one of the naughty girls even then?
My high school years are composed of a very interesting balance. I was a bad girl of sorts but also on the honor roll. I partied on the weekends and dated an amazing guy that liked to party all through high school but I studied very hard all week. I'm a very similar person today being that I'm very focused and driven when I need to be but I also like to have fun.
How did you get started in the adult industry?
I was feature dancing in Toronto, Canada and was approached but a producer who shot my first scene. After that I bumped into Dyanna Lauren who was on contract for Vivid and had just started directing for them. She told me to come to LA so that she could shoot me. That was the point I knew I was destined to be in the adult industry.
What's it like getting naked in front of the camera?
The first few scenes and layouts yu shoot are a little nerve racking but after that you become very comfortable in your own skin and with having people around and it's second nature. I had been an exotic dancer for several years already so I was already used to being nude in front of large groups of people.
Tell us about one of your coolest experiences in the industry.
My most fun day at work to date was the first shoot back I just did for Brazzers. I got to shoot at my own house and my best friend Lee Garland was here doing my makeup. It was for their Day in the Life of a Pornstar website so I got to walk around and show all of my fans my home, pets, garden and spa and talk about everything that makes me happy!
You've shot a lot of great movies. Do you have one or two that stand out in your mind as the best?
My favorite movie I've ever shot for someone else has got to be Acid Dreams for Micheal Ninn. It was so amazingly beautiful and the sets were unreal. I also loved shooting The Goddess Codes for my own company, Dragonfly Pictures. It was a project that was very dear to my heart as there is an underlying message.
I know sometimes you've got to bring in the kink for some of these shoots. What's the weirdest or most uncomfortable thing you've ever had to do?
I shot quite a bit of bondage and fetish before I started shooting adult so there's not a lot that phases me but I think the enema fetish movies were the strangest for me. It's all about how long you can hold the enema inside you for and be extremely uncomfortable doing it. I don't really understand it.
When you're not onscreen, are you more glamour babe or girl next door?
When I'm not working I'm more of a girl next door with a little bit of glamour. I own and operate a holistic spa so I'm usually dressed casually but I have to admit that I love amazing shoes, purses and French lingerie. Getting all dressed up and going out with my friends is so much fun too, especially with all the great places LA has to offer.
What do you like to do when you've got time off?
When I'm not working I love kickboxing, going to movies, hanging out with my amazing friends and drinking really good red wine. I also like taking time to do healing work on myself and getting different healing modalities from other people to take care of my temple.
Tell us a little story about your sexiest memory to date.
My sexiest memory is when I met someone I had been having phone sex with for a month for the first time. We had met through a friend and started out emailing which quickly turned into texting and then phone calls. That quickly turned into naked pictures being exchanged and then phone sex every night. We built up how amazing the sex would be for so long that when I picked him up at the airport the first kiss was heaven. We got back to my place and after making a cocktail and briefly touring my house had unreal sex with the most amazing connection ever! The rest of the weekend got better and better as things tend to do when you have that kind of connection and get to know each other's bodies better and better. It was unbelievable.
What's been your sexiest experience with a girl so far?
My sexiest experience with a girl would have to be when I was doing a softcore PlaybotyTV show and ended up being so attracted to one of the giris on set that we were covering ourselves up and having hardcore sex and continued doing so when the camera was off us and during breaks!
Damn, now that's what I call hot. Taking it back to the beginning, what was your family's reaction to the first adult content that you shot?
My family wasn't happy at all but have grown to except and honor my choices with time.
What's your favorite way to work out and keep that body in such sizzling shape?
I really love kickboxing and I train at Krav Maga. I love doing drills on the bag. I think getting all sweaty and throwing some amazing combinations is the sexiest thing ever!
Do you ever watch your own XXX movies?
I don't like to watch my own work.
Ready for the cliche pickup line? What's your sign?
I'm Aries. I'm very strong willed and strong minded but also very loyal and fair.
What day did you come into this world, and how did you celebrate that last time?
My birthday is March 27th. I spent the last one with my closest friends and had a great dinner and unreal wine.
RELATIONSHIPS & SEX
What's happening in your personal life right now--anybody special?
I'm seeing someone right now.
What does it for you when it comes to guys looks and personality?
I like tall, dark, handsome and fit in the physical department. As far as personality goes I have to have intelligence, an amazing sense of humor, a loving heart and an unconditional way of living life.
Wildest place you've gotten dirty in real life?
I haven't done that much in the crazy sex department believe it or not. I've shot a lot of crazy porn but at home I'm very normal....except if I have a few glasses of wine ;) I haven't even joined the mile high club but I plan on changing that very soon!
Tell us your turn-ons.
Turn ons are people that live life in their truth and are amazing, real people that live life in integrity. I also love hot guys with abs....I'm not going to lie :) Oh, and beautiful women that are secure with themselves.
And your turn-offs?
My biggest turn offs are a huge ego and arrogance.
Fave things to eat and drink?
My favorite drink is tea. I have an amazing line of teas at my spa and I love them all! I have a lot of favorite foods but if I had to pick one I'd say the chicken salad pita at Leonor's.
Favorite thing to wear?
My favorite piece of clothing is my black Dolce and Gabbana pant suit. It fits me better than anything I've ever had.
What about a favorite sports team?
I'm not a big team sports person so I don't really have a favorite but I love the UFC.
What's your favorite thing about yourself physically?
My favorite feature on myself is my eyes.
And on the opposite sex?
On the opposite sex I like eyes and abs.
FANS & THE FUTURE
What are your current projects?
Right now I'm personally very busy with construction work on my house. Professionally I'm busy running my spa and I've also started shooting again. Brazzers has my first four scenes and I have plans to do a few other things in 2009.
And what are your plans for the future?
My future plans include travel, moving forward with my spa and doing some amazing shoots.
