Interviewing Kayla Jane Danger at the AVN Expo was a greatly unexpected opportunity. Walking through the AVN Expo is unavoidably overstimulating. The crowds block and steer you in different directions. However, this worked out and steered Adventures Of The Mayor and I toward Kayla Jane Danger, while she had a rare free moment.
My first impression of Kayla Jane Danger was refreshing. She is a kind-hearted, educated, and funny woman who uses the adult industry to her full advantage. We started interacting by joking about having small breasts and not thinking it was an issue until we worked places that require pasties(Cutting pasties in half is what women in the industry with small breasts often have to do). These funny little experiences unite women in the adult industry. Even after getting breast implants, I still remember how maddening this issue used to be.
Kayla, originally from NY, lives in Las Vegas and owns a porn company along with being an adult actress. Her long list of accomplishments and endeavors is beyond impressive. Including a book available on Amazon(Pleasure Or Pain) and her websites MyDollParts.com and KaylaJanePOV.com. This beautiful lady is a business woman at heart! She is a perfect example of how a woman can use the adult industry to her advantage.
I am not sure if interviewing Kayla or researching her afterwards was more enjoyable. However, she did have one of the best quotable moments during our interview. Her answer made me realize how brave and powerful this delicate woman is.
Me: “If you could educate mainstream society about the adult industry, what is the one thing you like them to know?”
Kayla Jane Danger: “Our sex is safer than your sex, over 80% of the time. So, stop trying to tell us what to do and how to have sex. We are protected, we are careful, and we do a better job of it than you do.”
Lucy Tyler is an X-rated actress from Seattle, Washington and the only other person I found from the Northwest at the AVN Expo. What a little ray of sunshine in an industry that could eat her alive. This interview was impressive not only because Lucy took time to speak with us on her break, but because she had parent support literally in tangible reach.
Adventures Of The Mayor and I were lucky enough to get a few minutes to interview both Lucy and her Father. D, her Father, was present and was the most supportive father I have ever experienced. As a former stripper, it is amazing to see someone within the industry who does not have to hide what they do from their family. Someone who has a family member right behind them backing up their dreams and goals is beyond refreshing in the adult industry. Lucy Tyler may be one of the lucky ones when it comes to having a healthy support system.
In our radio interview for Adventures Of The Mayor , D said, “If I had a son and he played baseball, I would go to his baseball games.” This man is Father of The Year and Lucy Tyler is a ray of sunlight in the adult industry. I hope she always remembers this experience, because retaining her positive energy will be over half her battle if she wants to obtain longterm success in the adult industry.
We all look forward to see where the adult industry takes this vivacious little lady!

I arrived in Vegas for the AVN Expo on Wednesday night after the madness had already began. Normally I arrive in Vegas, get my rental car, and get to my home away from home only to go grocery shopping. However, this trip my roommate informed me there were others getting in for the Expo late who I would be interested in meeting. It had been months since I had been in Vegas(which is a long time), so I was ready to adventure and meet more adult industry people. Networking within the adult industry is half the amazing part of Vegas. I love people and sun and hate judgment. Vegas fits my phase of transition perfectly still, but I am unsure if it will always feel like home away from home. If the past few years say anything about the future, Vegas will be apart of my life for a while to come.
Back to my arrival to Vegas for the AVN Expo and meeting new industry people. The adult industry is like a grab bag of different kinds of people. There are those who use the adult industry as a stepping stone and there are the others who use it as a way to make quick money. The amazing thing about the AVN Expo is it weeded out most of the adult industry workers who use the industry as a way to make fast money. Conventions are for career minded individuals who wish to become more successful. Only a couple of the younger girls in the industry, who I interviewed, seemed to be unknowly used by the industry, rather than using the industry themselves.
So once again back to my point. When I am told I need to meet someone within in the adult industry I never know what to expect. I prefer to associate with people who are using the industry as a stepping stone to follow their dreams and passions, which they turn into realities. These people are the rare few, but the AVN Expo is a great place to find them. I was introduced to Enrique Arellano, a DJ at Solid Gold Fort Lauderdale and Host of the radio show, “Adventures Of The Mayor.” Can I just say I met my new best friend, just like off the movie “Step Brothers.” After a few hours at the Expo working together, we covered what we would have each covered in a day. So obviously this was going to be an amazing opportunity to maximize exposure and material from our trip to the Expo. After realizing how much we can get done together, I also realized how I have a way of putting people at ease and he has another. This makes total sense if you really think about it. I am a former stripper and he is a fixture as a DJ at a strip club, Solid Gold Fort Lauderdale . Plus, he is based in Florida and I am based in Portland(currently).
A new endeavor which is limitless and apart of the industry I still have yet to explore, game on!
