We’re happy to have you featured in Playboy! Can you give us a bit of a background on your career as a model and where it all started? About 10 years ago, I started bikini modeling as an amateur, and fortunately, I gained a following and a love of being in front of the camera. I am still shy, but back then I was really shy! So the blessing of getting compliments from Wicked Weasel bikini fans really fueled my modeling drive, and my shyness started to melt away. I guess the road to adult started when I got requests to lose the bikini in some of the pictures, and I gave nudity a try. Nude modeling made the step to adult very easy for me.

Having a full schedule must make it difficult for you to get much alone time, talk to us about the top 3 must-dos to ensure you fit in some well-deserved downtime?  I have a bunch of energy, so I love being busy, but my personal priories to keep me going include firstly, working out six days a week with running, cycling, and weights for cross-training. A perfect evening is lying on my husband’s chest with my dog next to me as we binge-watch a show. And reading a good book is always a fulfilling experience for me.

what does it mean for you to be seen as a strong, intelligent, ambitious woman?  Curiously, 10 years ago, I would never have seen myself in that way, since I was very introverted, and I was happy being a professional nanny. Happily, a decade later, I appreciate the reputation my company, Yummygirl, and I have in the adult industry. I have short-term and long terms goals for the company and me, and I will do everything I can to achieve the goals with integrity.

What are some of the biggest misconceptions people have about what you do? Mostly, I hear people think I’m “stuck up” as their first impression. I am not, AT ALL! I am just reserved, until you get to know me. Once I am comfortable, I relax, and I am not shy at all. I am working hard to try to show people who I am for a first impression, but I am a work in progress!

What does freedom of self-expression mean to you? I want to live in my utopia, and I want you to live in your utopia. Please don’t make me live in your utopia, and I won’t make you live in mine. “Live and Let Live” as long as no one gets physically hurt. I love listening to all points of view, because I want to understand their perspective. I don’t need to agree with them to understand and to hear the other person. I want the freedom to live my life without fear of reprisals, and I want this freedom for all people – we all deserve to pursue happiness!

We absolutely love your Instagram, your content is very dynamic, inspirational, and downright sexy, could you perhaps tell us what your personal experience as an influencer has been like? Other than living in fear Instagram will shut down my account again, since I am an adult actress, I love interacting with my fans.IG gives me a lot of reach to all sorts of followers who may like my fitness posts, selfies, or my bikini pictures. The interaction with my posts helps to guide my production schedule for my studio. I love to give the fans what they want. It’s a win-win!   

3 things that you can’t go a day without. Having sex, working out, and having sex again.

What about those crazy DMs you must receive? Care to share a few funny stories regarding those? I have never had so many marriage proposals, but the guys, and girls, are generally understanding when I break the news to them that I am married! Like most of us girls, I get a bunch of dick pictures in all shapes and sizes: Small, large, well-trimmed, and hairy. Guys, lose the hairy balls, it makes the picture of your dick look better!

Now we’re sure you experience a lot of male attention on and offline, any advice you would like to give to men out there who are hoping to catch your eye the right way? First, are you a real cowboy? Can you take care of a horse, and wear a cowboy hat? Now that we established that essential fact, we can start! Do you have a great smile, because that always grabs my attention. Then, as I am checking you out, I will go to your his abs next. If you have a six-pack (or a 4 pack even), I will get horny as I ‘drink’ them in. Then, if have my gaze, please approach me to say hi! If you are nice, your work is done. I am a very uncomplicated female!

What is the absolute worst thing a man can do to completely put you off?  I have no room in my life for rude people. I am drawn to kindness and repelled by hostility. 

That said, what advice would you have to give to all women out there when it comes to love and relationships? Take your time before you offer your heart and soul to someone you just met. As hard as it is to be patient in a new relationship, go slowly. I am not saying don’t hookup right away, I am saying hooking up is sex, not love. The truly addictive part of a new romance is infatuation, and that feeling feels like we think romantic love is supposed to feel. It is a powerful and wonderful feeling. But girls, not every guy who “flips your skirt” is a mate for life. I have learned it takes time to get to know the guy. He is likely on his best behavior, as are you. Over a time of about 12 months, both of you will likely have dropped your pretenses and shown each other the real you! If you still want to hang out, you may have a keeper! Also, if you are a jealous person, you may be insecure about your own self-worth, and that would be where I would start working on that part of you that is “not good enough”. Be enough for yourself, and you will be more than enough for the right man!  

Thank you so much for sitting down with us and letting us get to know you! Any last words for our readers out there? Ever since I was a shy, “ugly duckling”, little girl, I dreamed of being a Playboy Playmate. I feel so much gratitude for everyone who helped me realize this outrageous dream come true. My heart is so full! Thank you!
