After scheduling my interview with DJ Lee at Hustler club here in Las Vegas, I found out Natasha Nova was in town(Miss Pole Champ USA 2015). It is amazing how the adult industry works and how even though we rarely stay in one place very long we still gravitate towards one another. I have communicated with Natasha Nova for almost a year(pre Miss Pole Champ USA) and have never actually met her in person. It is funny how many people within the adult industry we bond with before actually meeting. I have to say the thing that shocked me the most was how tiny she is. Yes, she is stronger than a lot of people, but her pictures do not give her cute petite little frame the credit it deserves. Natasha continues to realize the opportunities that have been presented to her and she grabs onto them wholeheartedly. Seeing her transition to fancy has been quite the adventure to watch. I can only imagine how she feels. However, I do know that she radiates tenacity and gratitude.
Dj, dancer, journalist, pole champ… in the adult industry we do not judge we stick together knowing we are the minority who people love to love and love to hate.

DJ Lee is one of the very few female DJs in the strip club industry nationwide. She works at the Larry Flynt Hustler Club in Las Vegas, Nevada. Luckily she was one of the first DJs I met years ago when I was deciding if Vegas was to become my home away from home and she had no clue who I was other than the friend of another Las Vegas DJ. This was not something I planned, but I do not mention what I do unless people ask and people love to over look what it is not loud, flashy, and in your face in Las Vegas to a fault. So over the past few years, I have had the opportunity to study and interact with DJ Lee without her knowing that I am an adult industry journalist. The icing on the cake was when I started freelancing for the PANDA association, which is an association of DJs nationwide who work in the adult industry. Honestly, I was a little baffled that she had no clue who I was, but I would rather talk to someone like a person than as a journalist.
Journalists make people uneasy, as we should, we keep secrets and expose secrets which can make or break people. So to have the opportunity to interact with a DJ in the adult industry who had no clue I was anyone special or out of the ordinary was priceless. Especially because I think she is incredibly unique and fancy. She is so rare there are only about seven other female PANDA members nationwide. Plus, as a recovering stripper I have only worked with one female DJ in my career and I found it to be a very rewarding experience. It is always nice to be able to relate to the shoes of another, especially when they are six to eight inch heels.
From the first time I met DJ Lee I knew I wanted to interview her. However, after I saw her put on a show and control the crowd at the after party for the 2015 AVN awards(earlier this year) at the Hustler club I knew she had something special. Male DJs in the adult industry do not possess this uniqueness.
DJ Lee not only openly embraces this uniqueness she runs with it.
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!
