Hello Reya, for those who might not know you please let us know who you are and please describe yourself?

I’m Reya Sunshine, your favorite online slut! I love having fun and showing off in a sexy way. I spend most of my time entertaining an audience, whether it be through social media platforms, on webcam, adult videos, or live on stage. Once you get to know me, you’ll find that I’m super silly and sometimes a little witty.

What prompted you to join the adult industry?

I first ventured into the adult industry as a stripper. I had recently graduated college and was in a period of self reflection. I had what I affectionately call my “quarter life crisis” and figured “I should get paid for this!” I go into more detail on my YouTube video Why I Started Stripping if you’re interested.

Although camming was on my radar at that time too, stripping felt a bit more comfortable, as I was accustomed to entertaining people on a stage and you can keep the fact that you’re working in the adult space a secret from the outside world if you’d like. However the itch to cam and reach a much wider audience never went away. And here I am!

What would you say is your favorite part of being a cam model? What about the downside?

I love getting to be my own boss and the amount of creativity that is involved with the job. It’s like a never ending game. You can always create new shows and content as well as play with different ideas that may be successful or may fail. The downside is that it can be extremely emotionally draining.

If you can, share with us some of your strangest requests from your cam shows?

I love “strange” requests and seemingly more “bizarre” fetishes! I’ve done a giantess private where the customer wanted me to stick the cam in my mouth as if I was swallowing him. I just think it’s totally fantastic that these things get people off. Like why not!?

You are also a feature dancer. What does that involve as far as travel and do you get to work on cam while you are out of town on gigs?

Feature dancing requires a lot of travel! I am currently on the road traveling on my Road $trip. I’m living in different cities short term in order to network with photographers and models as well as to see where I want to live more long term. So in addition to the nomadic life I already have, I fly out to whichever city I’m featuring in. So it’s like double traveling! Features are pretty time and energy intensive between all the costume and routine prep work, promoting, performing, lap dancing, and engaging with my fans. I definitely don’t have time to cam while I’m away for gigs.

You have a ManyVids store as well. What kind of videos do you shoot for it and do you have any plans of shooting for other studios or is the plan to just shoot for yourself?

Yes I love working with ManyVids! I shoot a variety of content including sensual strip teases, masturbation videos with lots of dirty talk and JOI, and girl/girl content. I also shoot custom videos through ManyVids which are so much fun! I love getting into character and fulfilling someone’s fantasy! I am happy to shoot for myself as opposed to shooting for a studio. I love that I get to be in control of my content, how well it sells, etc.

If money wasn’t an issue what would be the one thing you’d love to do within the industry?

If money weren’t an issue, I would rent an extravagant mansion on a tropical paradise. I’d fly out 20-50 camgirls and we would party, dance on the pole, make videos and cam!

What do you think is the biggest misconception people outside the industry have about the industry?

I come across a lot of people who think adult workers are somehow forced into this industry and it’s their last choice. I hate that! I’m a smart, capable woman. I know I could excel at anything I put my mind to. I have unlimited options and I freely choose to do what I do.

Are there any firsts you are thinking about doing in the new future?

This could be a brilliant opportunity to tease my fans… but I won’t. Or maybe I just did.

What advice would you give someone who was thinking about getting into camming?

If you want to get into camming, just know that whatever you put out on the internet is there forever. I wouldn’t advise you to do it if you are looking for quick money short term. If you want to be really successful, it’s A lot of work.

What sort of things do you like to do when you aren’t working? Any hobbies?

There is a world outside of work? WHAT!? I love playing with my giant Pomeranian and riding roller coasters!

Are there any projects or special events coming up that you would like to promote, if so please do so?

Yes! Please stay up to date on my feature dancing schedule! I can’t wait to give you a show on stage and in your lap that you will never forget.
