Eva Lin interview
The transsexual adult industry has a contract girl and her name is Eva Lin. This superstar definitely has the credentials for it. Not only is she the reigning AVN Transsexual Performer of the Year, but this amazing woman has won several Tranny awards in her career including Best Hardcore Performer and Best New Face. Moreover, she has worked for every major studio and director in tranny porn. Now, as the contract girl for Trans500 studios, she will definitely take this company to greater success as she performs in their titles I Kill It TS, TS Girlfriend Experience, and Trans at Play.
Hi Eva, I am so impressed with the success of your career since the last time I had interviewed you. Congrats on winning TS Performer of the Year at the 2014 AVN Awards. Also, since we are both Filipino, it's great to see us Filipinos driving the fans crazy. Looking back at your fast rising career, what are your thoughts about your success thus far?
Hello George, first off I had no idea that you were Filipino! That is awesome! As far as my success and career, it was all unexpected. I remember my first scene with not much doubt within myself thinking that I would never make it in this industry and now I am here. It all went by so fast and I feel like this is just the beginning. I am ready to take on so much more in this industry and I am really excited for what is to come for my career.
How long have you been in the industry? How did you get started in it?
I have been in the industry for about 3 years now. I got started when I became friends with Yasmine Lee who is now retired and has been retired for the past two years. But I remember meeting her and thought to myself why not get into adult films. At the time I was working at a bar in San Francisco and decided to take a vacation to Los Angeles. That’s when I met Buddy Wood who was introduced to me by a photographer friend of mine. It was all very quick actually. It wasn’t like I thought about getting into porn for a while. It all happened within a matter of weeks.
What has been your most pleasurable moments so far? What has been your least pleasurable?
Most pleasurable would have to be getting to meet my fans and also having realized that I actually make quite an impact in people’s lives. I have had men tell me that they got into TS because they have seen my films and I have had other TS tell me that I have inspired them in so many ways. As far as the least pleasurable experience, it would be like any other experience that a lot of adult performers have and that is not being smart enough in having an agent in this industry. I have made many mistakes in “business” and I would rather not mention any names or companies.
You have an upcoming project with Josh Stone's Trans500 studio. Could you tell us about this amazing opportunity?
I am actually signed exclusive with TRANS500.COM
starting March 2014 and there will be many great projects to come. I am very excited about this opportunity.
Since you have signed with Trans500 studios, will you have the opportunity to direct for them?
We are still talking about that opportunity for me and there is a big chance that door will open up for me in the future. *fingers crossed*
Ramon is Trans500's main male performer. He is a lot of fun too. What are your thoughts about him as a sex partner? I can see the both of you joking around much on set together right?
-- sponsored by --
Ramon is a lot of fun, but believe it or not he was actually shy around me on set. Maybe I made him nervous. But I have to admit that he is a lot of fun when I hung out with the crew in Miami just going out and about the city.
What are your thoughts on working hands on with Josh and Trans500?
Josh is the best. He is very professional and he really looks out for the girls. He wants the best for all the performers and talents. He gives me a lot of advice and I look to him as my mentor.
How did you find out that Mr. Stone wanted you to be his studio's contract girl?
The first time I shot for Josh a year ago he mentioned to me he had some really big goals for Trans500 and wanted to bring new ideas and raise the awareness even more to the transsexual genre. After my scene went up that I did with Ramon and Castro Supreme, he called me up and said the response was great and he was interested in working more with me. He told me he wanted to allow me in the scenes to be myself and asked me what kind of scenes could we do to where we could bring out the best in me. After discussing this, it seemed we had the same vision on the direction I wanted to go. A week later he called me again and offered me to come onboard exclusively. It kinda caught me by surprise, but I gave it a lot of thought and I felt it was a good fit for me. I really like and believe in the direction that Trans500 is headed and I'm thrilled to be a part of it.
Since Mr. Stone and Ramon travel around the world a lot to film their transsexual films, will you be accompanying them much on those work trips?
I really hope so. I think it would be really fun to work with some of the well known Brazilian models as well as some of the Asian models. Wouldn’t that be awesome to see me and someone like Carla Novaes or Bruna Butterfly in a scene together?
One of my favorite delights in watching adult films is seeing a tranny with a female performer. Do you think that there will be an increasing trend to this type of match-up in tranny porn? Also, you must get so turned-on the night before just thinking about being with a woman right?
Haha, well I am not attracted to women at all. What really attracts me are men and that is from an honest stand point. I think women are great, but I just can’t seem to have any chemistry with them on and off camera. I do love watching women with men as that turns me on.
What has been the biggest surprise for you about the adult industry since you have started?
The biggest surprise is how many straight men, gay men, and women actually watch trans porn. This genre has really been growing since I started and I never had any idea how big it actually was.
What makes a man sexy? What traits do you admire in a man?
I love a man who is funny! Omg, I love a guy who can make me laugh and that is the biggest turn on. I love men who are successful and dominant in bed. I love to be made love to by a big thick cock. Also, I love athletic men who are hairy with dark features.
What makes a woman sexy? What traits do you admire in a woman?
I think Asa Akira is sexy.. enough said. Ha ha ha love her!
Do fans recognize you in public?
Yes! I usually get recognized in airports. But, when I lived in Los Angeles, I would get recognized in my support groups that I went to. Also, in restaurants. I was having dinner one night and the waiter asked for my autograph and picture in front of my date! I was so embarrassed.
You are one of the best Twitter people in the industry. Why do you think that it is important for performers to reach out to their fans on different social networks and on cam?
It is a vital part of being in entertainment to reach out to fans. The fans in my opinion is what makes me become who I am in front of the camera. I love my fans so much. They have given me so much support and so I try to be interactive with them on social media.
In your performances, you are amazing while performing on top or bottom. Your top screwing delivery can get pretty heated and driven. Is it more fun being on top? As a guy, I know that it's such a turn-on fucking someone.
I like bottoming more to be honest. I know there are a lot of men who love to bottom as well, but personally I like to be more submissive. I do like the thought of fucking a guy and dominating verbally.
How were you as a kid?
As a kid it was rough on me. I came to the the USA when I was 9 years old and was raised by my grandparents in the Bay Area, CA. I was always very feminine and got bullied a lot in schools and had a hard time fitting in. I grew up in a very old fashioned traditional Filipino family so I didn’t have the best childhood, but here I am! Award winning butt slut! Kinda speaks for itself.
What are your hobbies and interests?
My hobbies include reading and traveling. I have been all over Europe, South America, and all over North America. And currently, I am reading the “Game of Thrones” saga. I haven’t travelled for over two months now. I have just been really enjoying my time at home lately and working from home.
Are you a cat or dog person? Do you have any pets?
I can’t really choose between the two as they are both very different from each other. I love dogs for their energy and vulnerability. I love cats for their mischief and curiosity. I had both cats and dogs growing up and I love animals. Hopefully, I can take on that responsibility again in the future. For having pets are having kids. They require a lot of responsibility.
Many adult stars feature dance. Do you wish that there were more opportunities for transsexual performers to strut their stuff on stage for the fans?
Yes! That is one disadvantage in being a transsexual performer. A lot of the trans adult performers escort outside of films and I think if there were more opportunities to be a feature entertainer at clubs then lots of girls would take up on those opportunities.
Are there any particular adult stars that you want to be paired up with in the future?
I have always found Manuel Ferrara so sexy and passionate. I would love to be paired up with him, but one can dream.
What is your favorite thing about being an adult performer?
I love being able to please people who are watching me. I am an exhibitionist so I love the fact that someone is watching me masturbating to my videos. I also love the fame although it can get a bit scary when I am grocery shopping and I run into a creep and they end up following me home. (It’s happened before, oh yeah)
Is it easy for you to make friends with other adult performers?
Yes, even though I can be acquainted and have good relationships with other performers, it seems that most performers are very guarded. They seem to have a lot of difficulty trusting and opening up to others.
Are there any films that you are working on right now? Are there any web sites or future projects that you would like to promote?
There are many things I am working on for Trans500.com
that I can’t really speak of or mention, but I guarantee that it is something for everyone to look forward to in the near future. I will be in Exxxotica Atlantic City, NJ from April 11th-13th
and Ft. Lauderdale, FL May 2nd-4th
. I will be signing at the Trans500 booth for my lovely fans. Also people can keep in touch with me or follow me on twitter @EvaXXXLin and Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/evalin1989. These are the best way for fans to send me fan mail and I always try my best to write back.
