Interview With Jaye Lynn
The Return Of Jaye Lynn
This is your second appearance in fIXE Magazine, what was the reaction the first time?
I was so flattered the first time I was asked. When the article went live I told everyone! One of the few sites that has actually followed through with a promise to work with me and keeps a high standard of work throughout their site. Thank you for working with me a second time!
Classic pinup has become a huge phenomena lately, what about it first captured your interest?
I love classic pinup. Being heavily tattooed it seems to be a draw with photographers to work with me in this genre. If I was better at doing hair and makeup I would definitely shoot more of it. My only wish is that the quality would overpower the quantity.
You're someone who could obviously model in a number of other mediums, have you ever?
I work in just about every style. As long as it's safe, fun and won't get me divorce papers .. I'm usually IN! But I can honestly say I don't think you'll see me in Playboy, Victoria's Secret or Elle anytime soon. A little too much color for the common folk. I enjoy photos far more than video since it allows for that electronic nip/tuck that's often needed. Live performance .. meh .. not something I'd do but I'm not exactly shy. I just don't wanna fall off my platforms and look like a tool. Been there .. don't need to revisit it!
And what keeps you coming back to fetish modeling?
I have had the pleasure of working with some amazing riggers, photographers and fetish models. While I love the final images, I gotta say .. I've had some awesome experiences and made some wonderful friends.
Are there any aspects of fetish modeling you don't enjoy?
It can be very scary when doing fetish work with a photographer that I don't know at all. I always check references and sometimes will bring an escort, but I still have to be careful. You have to put your full trust in your rigger and photographer and that's not always easy to do. (knock on wood) I've been lucky and my weird shit-o-meter hasn't been tipped to far in the negative.
Do you think fetishism and sex and intrinsically connected, or can they be separate?
It's really a case by case issue. Most of the time fetish isn't sexual but it can be. Respect and be respected.
What advice would you give to someone who is new to the scene?
Always check references. Safety first - if something doesn't feel right .. STOP! When all the pieces of the puzzle come together it'll be worth it so .. HAVE FUN!! Try and find your niche and make it yours. I've found that foot fetish and bondage is where I excel most. I ALWAYS love to work with in the alternative genre .. gothic, vamp, tattoo .. it's definitely a lifestyle and it's where I feel the most comfortable. I prefer to stick with fetishes I enjoy so I can put my best into it. So far so good.
Are there any other creative mediums you work in?
I recently started acting and writing. It's a blast and I can't wait to do more. I've also started dabbling in photography and expanding on my photo editing knowledge. Not sure where that will go but we shall see...
Read any good books lately?
Hungry by Crystal Renn and the manual to my new Blackberry.
