Exclusive Interview: Tristan Kingsley

Hey Tristan, thanks for taking time out today. You were just recognized as Girl of the Month for LA Direct Models. Why do you think they picked you for this recognition?

I hope they picked me because they’ve noticed that I’m doing a really good job. I’ve got good reports back from the companies I’ve worked with and they say I’ve been very professional.

Acting professional is just something that’s understood with LA Direct, I think. Do you see a lot of girls in the industry that don’t really take it seriously?

Not that they don’t take it seriously, but some act like divas. They think everybody should serve them. They’re not interested in keeping the company they’re working with happy at the same time.

Tell me a little about yourself. What were you like growing up?

I’m from northern California in the San Jose area. I was always getting in trouble when I was growing up. I didn’t do it on purpose I just wasn’t very good at hiding what I was doing. In school I was a really good student and always on the honor roll. I was good and bad at the same time!

What kind of jobs did you have?

My senior year I did secretarial work at a gym. I stopped working until I was out of school and then just did retail. I was a manager at all the companies I worked for. The very last job I had before I entered the adult industry was an administrative assistant at a corporate office. I just got tired of the same routine over and over again, the same people every day. The office thing wasn’t really for me.

There is definitely a trend there. I’ve talked to a few girls lately who have left office jobs and went straight to the porn biz!

It’s OK at first, just lots of paperwork. It gets tiring doing the same thing over and over again. I decided it wasn’t for me!

How long have you been in Adult?

I’ve actually been doing it for about two months now.

What made you make the decision to get into porn and has it been what you thought it would be so far?

It’s actually been better than what I thought it would be. Growing up, my older guy cousins always had their Playboys and their secret porn stash under their bed. I always thought it would be fun to do it, honestly. I finally had my chance to have a fun job that I get paid good for so I took this up with LA Direct and really got into it. It’s been really fun. Everyone is so friendly and really welcoming. It’s not what I thought it would be. It’s a lot better.

So when you watched porn before what looked the most fun to you?

Just everything, honestly. I’ve always been into…you know how porn has little plots and you get to do a little bit of acting? I was always in school plays so I knew I could do that, no problem!

Are you a gonzo girl or are big features something you want to get involved in?

Features would definitely be fun!

Has it been all gonzo up to now?

I’ve done a couple of features with Playboy TV and Penthouse and I just did one with Adam & Eve. I’ve done a few features but it’s mostly been gonzo.

How far do you want to take your new career? How far into the future do you see yourself doing this?

As long as I keep getting shoots! I’m actually starting to shoot content for my own website. I’m not going to do this for the rest of my life because you eventually get old and wrinkly! Maybe I’ll start my own agency or something along those lines.

Has it been pretty easy to make friends in the industry?

It’s been pretty easy. I have no complaints yet! I’m still pretty new so I haven’t really touched everything yet. For now I like it. It’s a lot of fun. I’m pretty busy!

Tristan, thanks again for taking time out for this. What would you like to say to your fans?

I hope to keep you as fans for a very long time and I hope you enjoy my work!
