Sienna Sinclaire is one of the more interesting figures in the Adult world. She wears many hats (and many sexy ensembles as well). Fetish model, pin-up girl, runway model, adult model, belly and burlesque dancer, and all around glamorous, beautiful lady. She has appeared on The Howard Stern Show, Playboy Radio and TV, Rude TV and has had several spots in fitness commercials. Sienna is also an accomplished author currently working on a series of travel books that highlight the naughtier parts of some of the world’s most exciting cities. But it’s not all about her. Sienna’s altruistic streak is evident in her work as a certified love, sex and relationship coach. And who better to get love advice from than someone who has seen all sides of it? If Dr. Ruth had looked this good we all might have paid more attention…
SL: How did you get to where you are now?
SS: I got into the adult industry by moving to DC and not really having enough money to make ends meet. I was bartending, but it just didn’t cut it. I talked to some girlfriends and they suggested stripping. I tried that out and I did make more money, however I wasn’t making the kind of money I needed. So I observed the girls for a month while they were dancing and realized that I could do it. I auditioned one night and it didn’t bother me at all. Then I started getting greedy: I knew I could make more money so I went to New York and work 10 days straight at Scores. After I got tired of New York I went to Vegas for about 10 days, testing out the market. After a while I got tired of dancing and I had saved up some money and I wanted to start building a name for myself. And that’s how Sienna Sinclaire came about.
SL: Tell us about being a sex coach.
SS: It kind of comes natural to me, that’s why I’ve decided to get more into it. I feel like I’ve found my calling. I don’t want to be a pornstar, I don’t want to go in that direction. I have my website and I do some girl/girl and solo stuff on there, but I’m not looking to be the next Jenna Jameson or anything like that. I’m looking more to be the next Dr. Ruth! Basically being a coach is not like being a therapist. A lot of people have always come to me with sex problems. Coaching doesn’t deal with the past like therapy does; coaching deals more with the now and the future. You are just coaching someone. Maybe a person already has a great sex life, but they are looking to spice it up. You don’t have to have a sex issue to see a sex coach. Some people just have questions, or want more information about different lifestyles; maybe they are interested in some fetish stuff but have no one to ask about it. Some people have dating issues. There are a lot of guys who come to me who don’t know how to approach women; what to say, what to wear, or maybe they are just shy and awkward.
SL: It sounds like you work on a lot of different things: relationships, self-esteem issues, things like that.
SS: Right. People automatically think “oh you’re just having sex with the people” but it’s not that that. There are a lot of things I try to help people with. Self esteem is one of the main issues with women and men. That’s why they come to see a coach. They usually have low self esteem when it comes to dating; insecurity, things like that. A lot of people have body issues, both men and women.
SL: You’re work in the sex industry must come in handy when you are giving people advice.
SS: Anyone can go to a sex coach who is what I would call “book smart.” Sex coaches will always tell you; “if you’re going to be coaching it you need to go out and practice it.” Well, I’ve already practiced it all. So if people come to me asking about fetish or anything about the porn industry I’ve done it. I’ve already done pretty much everything in the sex industry. It gives you more knowledge than someone who’s coming in with a PhD. They are very intelligent, but I think it takes someone who has had a hands-on experience to really help.
SL: What inspired you to go this route?
SS: People have always come to me, I’m not really sure why. I guess I have something written on my forehead that says “ask me a question” because people have always come to me for advice, and not just about sex or the sex industry. People were always coming to me, so I thought “why don’t I start getting paid for it?” (laughs). I try to be very honest with people. I’m not shy and I usually don’t hold anything back.
SL: You do a lot of different things: the modeling, the coaching. What else would you like to do?
SS: Currently I am writing a book, due out this summer. It’s a line of travel books called the Naughty Girl’s Guide. The first one will be The Naughty Girl’s Guide to Los Angeles and the second will be The Naughty Girl’s Guide to Las Vegas. It’s part history, part coffee table book, part travel book. There’s nothing out there like it. There are some travel books that might have a few naughty things in them, but there’s no book out there dedicated specifically to the naughty world in these cities. And that all ties into everything else I do, the coaching, and the modeling. Even though it’s a travel book or a coffee table book there’s a lot of history in it because that’s what I’m into. I’ve done so much research on this topic it’s ridiculous! It’s really interesting how LA has always been this really naughty place. It starts off with pre-code Hollywood and then goes into after the codes went into effect and how so much changed and went underground. There is so much seamy stuff about the Hollywood starlets, it’s really fascinating. I’ve found some really good stuff. I delve into the seedy world of the ‘60s and when ‘70s porn became chic. There’s a lot of really interesting stuff in there, so be sure to check it out when it comes out!
