Have you ever had an initial conversation with someone that went so well that you almost felt like you’ve known the person forever by the end of it? With no awkward pauses, this is how my first long chat with adult entertainment model Candy Licious went. When she asked me what I thought of her performances on two major trans websites, I replied that the industry seemed to be crying out for some one like her and I hope that this interview helps to illustrate exactly what I meant by that. I hope you’ll enjoy my interview with Candy (Twitter: @_tscandy & IG: _tscandy).
Caramel: Congratulations on an amazing adult industry and social media year, Candy. If 2017 is anything like this year for you, I’m sure it’s gonna be a blast. So far you’ve been killing it on Black-TGirls.com including two solo photo and video sets and a hardcore scene with Drake. Plus, that killer TGirls.Porn scene with CoCo Dahlia which took me by surprise. I mean, I think of both of you and CoCo as primarily straight, yet the chemistry was incredible. Before you knew who you’d be working with, did it take a lot of coaxing to get you to do a scene with another trans model?
Candy: No. When the job was offered, it didn’t matter. When sex is good sex is good. CoCo and I got hard for each other and the rest is history. I’m glad you like our scene.
Caramel: I’ve been a CoCo fan for quite awhile, since before she broke into the industry. What influenced you to get into the adult industry and where were you born and raised?
Candy: I wanted to do porn as since I was eighteen. I love sex and I knew just I wanted to model. I was born in and raised Tennessee.
Caramel: How old were you when you began considering that you might be trans?
Candy: I was like 11. I always wanted to be a girl. I looked up “trans” on the Internet when I was very young and I explored and realized what was going on with me.
Caramel: Did you have anyone to confide in about what you were experiencing? Who did you tell first?
Candy: Yes, I told mom who already knew. She started helping me with my female clothes and hair. I went on hormones vat a very young age, but I backed off until I turned eighteen and got a doctor. I didn’t want to screw up my body from lack of proper medical advice. I wanted to do it the right way.
Caramel: Did anyone turn their back on you once your transition began?
Candy: No, I didn’t lose family or friends. I gained friends.
Caramel: What kind of kid were you in school? The outgoing type, shy or somewhere in between?
Candy: I was a very outgoing kid and very outspoken. I still am.
Caramel: Did you have any bullying incidents?
Candy: No, and I think it’s partly because I was home schooled because I’m transgender. Attending a regular high school might have been problematic. More attention might have brought on more drama.
Caramel: While doing hardcore scenes with @CocoDahlia on TGirls.Porn and Drake Ford on Black TGirls, were you nervous at all?
Candy: I wasn’t nervous and even if I was, my photographer @OmarWax made me feel very comfortable. He’s very supportive and instrumental in helping me get my foot in the door.
Caramel: You always seem completely at ease. What did you do to prepare yourself for your first solo shoot? In other words, how did you learn how to pose so gracefully?
Candy: I’ve always dreamed of being a model, so I didn’t really need any special training. I also want to break into mainstream modeling someday. I feel that I’m going to be big in whatever I do. Porn this is great for now and I love it, but I want to do other things too.
Caramel: I was so upset when the trans modeling series wasn’t renewed for a second season. If you haven’t already, check out Strut on Oxygen. What’s one of your biggest turn ons doing a hardcore scene?
Candy: Getting my nut!
Caramel: Ha! That’s totally understandable! Is there anyone in the near future you’d like to work with?
Candy: Castro from Trans500.com.
Caramel: Oh, he’s hot and seems like a great guy. Thousands of porn watching horses out there are shaking their heads. How do you thing trans porn is doing these days in general?
Candy: It’s going well, it’s really poppin’ right now. I’d like to see more really big cocks in trans porn.
Caramel: Well, once you mentioned Castro, I mean like damn. The two of you would be striking in a scene together. Are you into kinky sex at all?
Candy: I like it and I don’t think of kinky sex as nasty. But when it comes to BDSM and stuff, I’m more into the visual sensations and bondage. I’m not into pain.
Caramel: You wouldn’t have to worry about inflicting pain on my favorite kinky websites. We’ll talk more about that later. Are you primarily top, bottom or verse?
Candy. I’m verse, but primarily bottom. I can top for the right guy though.
Caramel: Great. Do you ever consider doing webcam too?
Candy: Yes, definitely. I’m going to become a live Chaturbate performer soon.
Caramel: Wise choice. Fans are going to flip seeing you performing live and I think you’ll love the independence of being a broadcaster. Aside from the beautiful results we can stream or download, how did your shoots with Bob of bobstgirls.com go? I’m always hearing that like Omar, Bob is fun and easy to work with.
Candy: It was fun! I was in Los Angeles for a week and was only planning to meet with Bob, but I also met Joey Silvera. They have crazy photo and lighting equipment and great sets. They both made me feel comfortable.
Caramel: That’s right, you have an EvilAngel.com video coming out soon also! Joey is legendary as a former porn star and producer. That’s most likely going to be phenomenal. Do you watch porn yourself? What was the first porn movie you ever watched and really liked?
Candy: Actually, I don’t watch that much porn. There was nothing in particular I watched before I got into the industry.
Caramel: What sort of music do you listen to?
Candy: Mostly R&B and Hip-Hop. Country too.
Caramel: Do you have any favorite movies?
Candy: Catwoman with Halle Berry.
Caramel: I can imagine a you in a Catwoman porn spoof. What do you like to do for fun off-camera?
Candy: I love shopping. What girl doesn’t like shopping? I also love going out to clubs and I love traveling.
Caramel: Do you plan to continue living in Tennessee?
Candy: My home and family is here, but I could see moving in the future.
Caramel: Are you currently dating anyone?
Caramel: What coming up for you in the future?
Candy: Boobies. Breast augmentation, more studio work and definitely webcam.
Caramel: Describe yourself in five words.
Candy: Beautiful, confident, outgoing, fun, spontaneous.
