I recently sat down with  “Tina”  she does not want her real name to be known, she lives in Helena, Montana. But was born and raised in Los Angles, California. At an early age she got involved with the porn industry and became a fairly well-known performer, she reportedly made fairly good money until one day she was in an automobile accident and was horribly disfigured. She now lives a quiet life in Helena. Let’s learn more about “Tina.”

 

AAIM: So “Tina” at what age did you start working in the porn industry?

Tina: I think I just turned 18, I used a lot of drugs back then so I could be wrong, it might have been earlier.

AAIM: Do you remember how you first got involved in that type of work?

Tina: I was walking around in downtown LA and I saw a flyer on a bulletin board it said something about  “Internet Promotions-Adult Oriented” so I followed up with it.

AAIM: What made you want to respond to the flyer?

Tina: Well, like I said I was using drugs and I needed a way to make money, I didn’t have a job, so I called the number on the flyer and was told where to go, it was a motel room at this run-down place. The whole interview took about an hour and a few days later they called me back and told me where to go and that’s when I was in my first video.

AAIM: How much did you make for that video?

Tina: I think I got $250 and a few gift cards to Bed, Bath and Beyond and Hastings.

AAIM: Really? Gift Cards?

Tina: Yeah, I didn’t know at the time that wasn’t a standard way most performers got paid…That guy who ran it was really a sleaze ball.

AAIM: So what kind of porn did you start off doing?

Tina: Well at first I just played extra bodies, I didn’t star in my own video until I went to a new studio called Dove Love Films…that’s when someone came up with the idea of me dressing up like a Disney character, I went big time after that.

AAIM: Did anyone from Disney complain about what you were doing?

Tina: Oh yeah…Dove Love Studios used to get sued all the time but they would just shut the business down and start a new one the next day…Disney couldn’t keep up.

AAIM: So how many years did you do the Disney themed stuff?

Tina: I think it lasted for 5 years….Until I had my accident.

AAIM: So let’s talk about that, you got into a bad car accident, what happened?

Tina: I had just left a video shoot, I was high on Meth and drinking vodka, I didn’t see a propane truck pull out in front of me and I slammed into the back of it, it caught fire, and I was badly burned before I was pulled out of my car.

AAIM: Is that why you wear that Minnie Mouse Mask now?

Tina: Yeah, I don’t want people to see me, plus it makes me think of the good ol days of making movies.

AAIM: Well…I’m sorry that happened to you, can I ask what other injuries you received?

Tina: Well I was burned over 80% of my body, I lost both my legs below the knees, I lost my right hand and my left elbow. And worst of all I have a colostomy bag…So as you can imagine I wasn’t able to do porn anymore, and it really was just the colostomy bag that ruined it. There is a market for everything just not chicks with colostomy bags.

AAIM: I imagine that must be pretty tough, but I admire your courage to keep going.

Tina: Well, I’m a fighter.

AAIM: So tell me about what you do now?

Tina: I am an adult beverage enthusiast.

AAIM: So…You drink beer and stuff?

Tina: Well, basically yes, but I also blog about different local breweries and I rate their beers.

AAIM: Oh, well that sounds like fun, do you make money off of it?

Tina: No…I just do it for fun.

AAIM: Well, everyone needs a hobby right?

Tina: I guess so.

AAIM: So can I ask how do you support yourself?

Tina: I still make money off my videos and merchandise.

AAIM: Oh wow, that’s cool, can I ask how much you make year?

Tina: Last year I cleared about $280,000.

AAIM: Holy cow, that is pretty good.

Tina: Well, my Disney videos were pretty popular, it’s kind of a cult following now.

AAIM: So you still have a lot of fans then?

Tina: Yeah, I have a website where I talk to them and they pay me to dress up in the old costumes and talk dirty to them.

AAIM: Oh…Well…So you are still in the porn industry kind of aren’t you?

Tina: I don’t get naked

AAIM: But men pay you to act out their weird fantasies right?

Tina: I think of it more as entertainment then porn.

AAIM: Can I ask what the weirdest thing anyone asked you to do for money was?

Tina: Well, I have one guy that pays me $500 dollars per colostomy bag that I mail him.

AAIM: That’s gross!

Tina: Well…I won’t tell you what he does with them but, it is kinda creepy.

AAIM: Well, to each his own I guess.

Tina: Exactly, plus it pays the bills.

AAIM: Alright, It certainly was interesting talking with you “Tina.”

Tina: Thank You.
