SEXY BLATINO PORN STAR SPEAKS WITH SUPREMEWRITER


For the past ten years, Porn star Tiger Tyson has been become one of the industry's most popular stars, winning fans with his toned, physique, large dick, and rough, yet sensual style, which has viewrs, releasing themselves.
Born in Brooklyn, the Black and Latino start, who also appeared in the magazines Black & Latin Inches, got his start as an exotic dancer before entering the business staring in "Off The Hook," "Spainsih Lessons" and "Tiger Untamed" but it's was his film "Tiger Tails Brooklyn" that not only made him a favorite, it was listed as a classic by fans and adult publications. Wanting more, he decided to forge his company with Pittbull productions, where he has produced and directed many of the films that has hit number one including, The Show which recently received an GV award for Best Ethnic Film.
The sexy and talented star took time to grant this interview with me via email.

Ra SHAWN: Thanks for the interview and congratulation for The Show Part 2 winning the Award for Best Ethnic Theme DVD. How does it feel to be honored by your peers and the industry?
TIGER: It felt FANTASTIC! This is our first award and we were totally honored to be recognized by such a prestigious award show as the GayVN. I hope it's our first...and not our last! We also had a lot of nominations for best threesome, best duo, best newcomer, best supporting actor...I personally was very flattered.

Ra SHAWN: It’s been 10 years since you started your career in the porn industry. How did you get started in the industry and what was it like filming your first film?
TYSON: I started as a stripper in New York, then I toured the USA doing strip shows at gay clubs. I met another male stripper who was working in adult gay films here in New York City and he hooked me up. All I remember was that I was too drunk to remember the first film! A combination of nerves and stage fright, I think.

Ra SHAWN: Your film “Tiger Tails Brooklyn” has been dubbed a classic by many peers and fans. What was it about that film that makes it a fan favorite.
TIGER
: When I made Tiger's Brooklyn Tails I was more intimate with my co-stars and I was a fresh new face (body). I also didn't know what I was doing so I kept trying out new things. I think that's what made that film such a classic.

Ra SHAWN: Around Early 2000-2001 you took a small hiatus. What did you do during your time off.
TIGER: I was travelling and headlining at clubs in the US and in Europe as a stripper.

Ra SHAWN: What inspired you to start your own production company and how many films have your company released since forming and how did you link up with Pitbull Productions.
TIGER: The people at Pitbull are old and dear friends who saw that I was being taken advantage of - they listened to my ideas about how I wanted my own production company to be run, the types of films I wanted to do, and they offered me a business plan I couldn't refuse! Since we began working together, I've released Tiger Tyson The Way You Like It, Tiger Tyson Strikes Back, Tiger Tyson Take Em Down 1 and 2, Tiger Tyson Secrets, Tiger Tyson In the Heat, Steel Curtain, The Show Part 1 and Part 2, and Tiger Tyson's Eiffel Tower: Paris is Mine! which I just finished filming in Paris, France.

Ra SHAWN: What it’s like working in front and behind the camera?
TIGER: I like working in front of and behind the cameras because it keeps me on my toes. Both "jobs" are completely different. When I'm in front of the camera and having sex, I have to concentrate on giving a hot, steamy performance - my fans want to see a sex scene that's red-hot, believable, and that touches them - turns them on. When I'm working behind the camera directing, my concentration is on getting the best performances from my actors possible - making the scene flow smoothly, keeping the sex hot and the actors comfortable with each other - making sure the technical problems are being addressed - cameras getting the right angles, boom mic working, photographer getting in for the right digital shots for publicity stills - in other words, I feel like a sex concierge who's trying to keep a hotel of sex workers happy! It's stressful but also a great challenge.

Ra SHAWN: In your recent releases Take Em Down 1 & 2 and Steel Curtain you worked with Supreme Castro and Jason Tiya. What was it like working with two brothers who mostly top in the films they starred in?
TIGER: I can't say it was much different from any other man I've ever topped since I perceived them as my bottoms...and proceeded to treat them that way!

Ra SHAWN: You recently went to Paris to film your current release. What was it like filming in Paris and do you plan on working with models from the UK.
TIGER: Paris is a great city and just being there was exhilarating. It's true that it's not as easy to film in a foreign country due to the language barrier. Fortunately I had a good translator since most of the actors we used in Paris did not speak English. The boys were beautiful and kind and generous and put 100% of themselves into the filming. Tiger Tyson's Eiffel Tower: Paris is Mine! I think it's going to be one of the hottest movies I've ever made! I'm in talks to go to London to make a film, as well as to Amsterdam. I'd like to travel to all the hot spots of the world and film the hottest boys.

Ra SHAWN: I noticed in your films that you and the cast usally dress in urban attire (fitted caps, timberlands, sneakers )and bring roughness and sensuality to your work. How important is it to showcase those qualities in the final product?
TIGER: I film a genre called thugporn so I need to keep it as real as possible. That's the way we actually dress. I believe the person who buys my films wants to see the real deal.

Ra SHAWN: What are misconceptions people have about the porn industry and how are you able to manage a public and private life away from the camera.
TIGER: One of the biggest misconceptions is that I have sex 24/7! People assume that because you are a "porn star," you have a non-stop sex life going on. In real life, it doesn't work that way! It's easy to keep my private life private. I don't go outside!

Ra SHAWN: In your first interview with Black Inches Magazine you talked about pursuing a career in law. Do you still plan on studying law in the near future.
TIGER: I plan to keep studying it just enough to keep suing the fuckers who keep trying to steal my movies and who infringe on my trademarks and copyrights!

Ra SHAWN: What advice would you give to someone who wants to pursue a career in the industry?
TIGER: Always wear a condom...and get paid in cash right away when you work! You can't trust everyone to be honest so watch out for yourself. Don't be naive. Stay safe, be smart and give 100% when you are on a job. Don't be arrogant, obnoxious, stoned or stupid. You won't last in this business if you pull shit like that.
