I had been working in an office bored looking for something more interesting to do. I was watching an adult movie with a friend and thought 'I could do that'. I had some pictures taken and sent them to the top UK production companies in the UK. They liked me, shot me and here I am living in LA.
What are your favorite types of outfits to model in?
I like the feel of really soft lacy or satin lingerie and silky stockings, always with high heels. One of my favourites is my purple satin basque. Anything that makes me feel sexy.
How did you get interested in adult entertainment?
At a young age I had glanced at magazines and movies, but it was once I started shooting that I really got interested.
What is the experience being on the set like?
At first I was really nervous on my first set, but I soon forgot and started to enjoy myself. People on set want to be there and make a good movie. It feels good to have hair and makeup done, get help choosing sexy clothes and then pose for pretty pictures. Then of course the real excitement begins when the camera rolls. I always enjoy myself, but then again, who wouldn't?
What are your favorite types of scenes to shoot?
There is nothing like the feel of a real cock, but I admit I like to play with a sexy girl. I like to kiss, stroke intimate places including both sets of lips.I recently just directed and stared in my directorial debut, Tanya Tate The MILF Masseuse. I got to massage bodies of hot girls, and they all ended with a happy ending.
Who have been your favorite people to work with?
For my movie I was able to choose my cast. I got to work with Jelena Jensen, I was so dying to play with her for ages. She was so sweet and so hot. Another girl I like is India Summer, she is so passionate. For guys I like to have really good chemistry. A few of my favorites include Xander Corvus and Even Stone.
What do you have planned for the future?
I am looking forward to directing more movies. It gives me a chance to be able to act out my own personal fantasies. I love to dress up as superheroes so I want to get more involved in my sueperhero and cosplay website www.JustaLottaTanya.com. I also have my own hardcore website www.TanyaTate.com. I will be continuing to work on this site bringing hot Tanya Tate to my fans.
Do you think pinup and fetish are becoming part of the mainstream culture?
I think society are becoming more accepting of softcore and glamour in general. Funny I actually have a pin up shoot booked with a local photographer. I am excited to be working on that project. But I think so. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being or wanting to feel sexy. Why not explore that.
What kind of music do you like?
Mixed types, I like old stuff from The Beatles to Motown to classic Rock such as Fleetwood Mac. I love to work out to dance music.
What do you like to do for fun?
I like to keep myself fit and pampered at the gym and the spa. I like to go to Comic Conventions. I do video reviews on my youtube page. But, My favourite night out would be a visit to the theatre and dinner.
