Anthony: How did you get into the adult industry? Who approached you - or who did you approach - and what made you decide to go for it?
Shawn: I applied at Raging Stallion and a few other studios last summer. I was contacted quickly to shoot "Impact." Soon after Chris Ward offered me a contract through 2013 so I took it. I love working for Raging Stallion and Falcon.
Anthony: What was it like doing your first porn shoot - scary, interesting, sexy? - and what's different for you about doing porn now that you have experience?
Shawn: My first shoot was great becasue from the moment I got to San Francisco I felt at home. Everyone at the studio is so amazing and inspiring to work with. I felt excited, comfortable... and yes Woody Fox is incredibly sexy. I learn more every scene. On your first shoot you are really focusing on body positioning, lighting etc., but now I can really just get into the scenes and enjoy the sex.
Anthony: Are there any videos you've made, or directors or performers you've worked with who stand out for you, and can you tell us about them?
Shawn: Every single scene partner and director I have had the honor of working with has been incredible. There is nothing better than gaining a great friendship through a scene. Tommy Defendi, Jimmy Fanz, Ryan Rose, Jimmy Durano and Trenton Ducati are all amazing people on and off camera. As far as directors go I have worked with Steve Cruz on a lot and we have an epic chemistry as far as work is concerned. Mr. Pam @nakedsword, Bruno Bond and Adam Killian are all fantastic directors to work with.
Anthony: If you had to thank one person in the adult industry for helping with your career, who would it be, and can you tell us why?
Shawn: Adam Q. Robinson and Toby J. Morris tie on this one. Both of them have worked extremely hard to boost my career. They are both very funny and entertaining people, who I know love and support me. Thanks guys! xo
Anthony: What's the funniest or weirdest thing that's ever happened to you during a shoot or during sex?
Shawn: The funniest thing was probably my face during the live show of Hard Friction on Raging Stallion with Fabio Stallone... I was getting wrecked LOL
Anthony: What do you do when you're not shooting porn? Got any hobbies, favorite TV shows, websites or things you like to read?
Shawn: I dance in Seattle three nights a week at R Place. I am always twerking, listening to music and buying it on itunes. I used to swim competitively so I still am in the pool a bit and I marathon train.
Anthony: What advice would you give a newbie who's just starting in the industry - any suggestions on what to do or what to avoid?
Shawn: Love yourself, stay disciplined and avoid drugs.
Anthony: Do your friends or family know you're a pornstar? If so, how did they react when they found out? If not, how do you think they'll react when they find out?
Shawn: Yes they know. Most people reacted positively and if they didn't they are no longer a part of my life. "...because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." - Bernard Beruch
Anthony: What's in store for you in the future - any projects on the way? Will you still be in porn in 5 years, and if so, will you still be a performer or do you plan to be doing something else?
Shawn: "Buck Naked" by Falcon Studios just released. I have a movie called "Frathouse Cream" shot by Mr. Pam @Nakedsword coming soon, as well as Raging Stallion scenes with Fabio Stallone, Aleks Buldocek, Josh West and Trenton Ducati. Yes I will still be in porn, but I hope to be dancing all over the country by then... and maybe even working a bit behind the scenes.
Anthony: Where can fans find you and follow you on the web?
