Hello Tanya, for those who might not know you please let us know you are and please describe yourself?
My name is Tanya Parker, and I’m a cam model on Live Jasmin, as well as Streamate Models. I worked as a catwalk model before and collaborated with a couple of brands from all over the world, so you might have seen my pretty face somewhere else before. I would describe myself as a glamour girl who loves showing off her body, playing with guys’ minds and being as they like to call me, THE tease. Talkative, friendly, easy-going, naughty, slightly too narcissistic, quite a perv, adventurous, a little nerdy, in love with traveling, a huge fan of Dr. Who, I love reading and writing, I’m amazed by human psychology, like making new friends, learning something new every day and adore conversations with educated, well-mannered men. I’m easily turned off by small talk, bad grammar and rude guys.
What prompted you to join the adult industry?
I don’t know if I’m really a part of what you’d call the “adult industry”, but being a model on cam is something that came into my life as an experiment. Apart from my modeling contracts that just took a small part of my time now and then, my main job before starting to do this had to do with marketing. I was working as an online marketer and had a little spare time to do something aside from that. Since I was only going to be in my home country for about 3 months and looking for another part-time job would’ve taken a long time, and I felt bad about leaving shortly afterwards, I started looking into something that I knew very, very little about: cam modeling. This is how I went for an interview with a studio and got hired. I saw this entirely as a fun thing that I was just gonna try so I could tick one more naughty thing off my to-do list. By the end of my time there, I still had to quit since I was leaving the country, but I found myself kinda addicted to camming. A few months later, I was creating accounts for myself on various websites and starting to work from home. I didn’t quit my job from the beginning, so kept them both going in parallel, but since about 6 months, cam modeling became my one-and-only job. I guess I like it a bit too much.
So, you are a cam model on Jasmin and Streamate. What do you like best about being a cam model and what are the drawbacks if any?
Yes, I model on two websites at the same time and love both of them. I think that in my case, the thing that makes it very cool to be a cam model is that it perfectly suits my personality. I’ve always liked to be treated like a goddess, be in the center of attention, have all men at my feet, begging for my attention while I’m diving deep into their minds, exploring their deepest thoughts and desires, getting to know their fetishes and playing with their minds. Most of my friends noticed, for example, how I became much less of a show-off in real life since I’m a cam model, because I get to express my personality and dominant female attitude somewhere else. Speaking of drawbacks, there’s not a lot of them, since this is a job that you can turn into basically anything you want, but probably the fact that there is a lot of competition, the domain is continuously evolving and it’s hard to stay up-to-date with everything new, constantly update/renew yourself is quite tiring. I think it’s worth the hard work, though
You also have a website, TanyaxParker.com. What kind of content do you make for your site and are you planning on doing anything new in the near future?
My website was created as a way for fans to get to know me a little better. It’s a place where I post the more personal photos and selfies that might not look as professional but give people access to the real world I live in. The kind of content that I create focuses a lot on what I would call erotica – very artistic, seductive stuff, a lot of teasing, playfulness, and naughtiness. I am planning to add some more videos in the future and some of them might be addressing new niches. However, I’m planning to keep everything as erotic and creative as possible. Those interested in porn will unfortunately not see me with another guy or girl – not in a sexual way, at least, but you might see some videos with other girls in them in the near future.
Have you thought about shooting out in porn valley in the future and if you have, what would you want to shoot?
As I said many times before, I am a huge consumer of porn, and I freaking love porn movies. However, I do not see myself being part of one, as I like to focus on the erotic side of things a lot more and really like the idea of just being a model, it suits my way of being a lot better.
If money wasn’t an issue, what would be your dream scene to make?
Excluding anything porn-related, if I were to shoot a really cool movie, I would like to do a complex pin-up girl movie inspired by Dita Von Teese’s shows. Something really glamour, with a lot of effects, shot in various locations and focusing on all of my skills Of course, that’s just one idea, but I would love to explore many more themes that would bring my qualities to light: a geisha shoot, for example.
What would you say is your favorite movie or scene you have done so far?
Tough to decide, but I think that one of my all-time favorites will always be my recent Naughty or Nice movie that I shot at Christmas time for Jasmin. It was the first I got my photographer/video-maker involved, and it was quite fun. While he normally just does the shooting and editing, I now asked him to dress up as Santa and use a candy cane to spank my ass for being a naughty girl. All I can say is that we had lots of fun filming, and the result was pretty great since I also one of one LiveJasmin’s video competitions with it.
What advice would you give someone who was thinking about getting in the adult industry?
I personally don’t know much about the way porn works – behind the scenes – but if anyone was planning to get into cam modeling, I would advise them not to copy what other models do. We are all very different, and thank God for that! The thing that I think is appealing to guys who visit cam sites is that every woman expresses her sensuality in a very different way, so try to focus on who you really are and what makes you special, and don’t be afraid to be a little alternative! Another important thing to mention is that attitude really is everything in this field – it is a game of power played by men and women, and it’s only you who can decide who’s gonna win and who will lose. Last but not least, as the motto of a studio I like says: keep calm and be a princess.
Is there anyone that you would like to shoot with, either on your site or cam?
Well, there are many girls out there that I really like 🙂 I would love to shoot with pretty much any sexy girl – I’m a bit like a guy in that respect haha – but some examples would be: EvaTalks, TracyCarter, and EmillyVixten from LiveJasmin. As for guys, I don’t know many cam boys, so I can’t really give names, but I think I would prefer to do girls-only videos since the focus would be on sensuality. Not excluding the possibility of maybe doing something cool with a guy in the near future, though. You never know!
Who would you say are your biggest influences, either in the industry or not?
One of my biggest inspirations are: Dita Von Teese in terms of sensuality and ideas for shows, Violet’s Voice when it comes to voice/role-playing shows and Nikki Diamond (Nikkidiamond69) when it comes to attitude on cam, behavior, mentality and so on. I often get inspired by erotic photography and Candy Girls on Youtube when developing new content for my website or one of the camming sites.
What sort of things do you like to do when you aren’t working? Any hobbies?
I’m a traveler, and you will often notice that I’m away for a few good weeks or a full month – not because I’m on holidays, though, but cause I’m traveling. I’m the backpacker type, so I will fill a small backpack with all the important stuff I need and go to a random country that most people don’t think of going to – like Iran or Myanmar (Burma). I love being out there, in the unknown, exposing myself to all sorts of brand new situations that I didn’t have a pre-planned reaction to. I enjoy learning new languages, understanding how other cultures function, meeting new people and getting to know them. Also a huge fan or reading and writing. I also have a blog on my website and love doing erotic writing for my fans. I also write on demand, so feel free to come up with ideas and suggestions – check the tips section for that.
Are there any projects or special events coming up that you would like to promote, if so please do so?
My personal website and Twitter are the best ways to stay up-to-date with everything I’m doing. I always come up with new videos, photos, take part in competitions and events via LiveJasmin, and you can see all that on my Twitter. Follow me @xTanyaParkerx to make sure you don’t miss a thing, and if you ever want to get in touch for personal requests, I recommend using the form on my website – www.tanyaxparker.com. Feel free to send me emails, too – firstname.lastname@example.org, but please note that I tend to be a little slower in responding to these, so my site and social media are probably your best options.
