Life can sometimes be complicated and difficult and every single one of us will get to a point in our lives when we feel comfortable and content with ourselves and happy in our own skin. I got the chance to interview wonderful Lana Heart and it’s great to hear her ambitions for her career and her feelings of happiness about her transition. Grab a coffee and enjoy my interview with Lana Heart.
PornOCD: Let’s start at the very beginning. Where were you born and raised?
Lana: I was born and raised in South Haven, a small town in southwestern Michigan.
PornOCD: How was growing up for you ?
Lana: I had a good childhood. I was never abused or anything like that. I was always the kind that kept to myself, that never let anyone get too close to me. So I spent a lot of time working on dirt bikes and snowmobiles. I was a bit of a daredevil. I felt the need to prove I was tough by riding faster and harder than anyone else around me.
PornOCD: When did you first feel you wanted to live as a TS?
Lana: I knew I was different from a young age, probably 5 or 6. I did everything I could do to hide it most of my life. It wasn’t until after my marriage had fallen apart that I knew I needed to start living life for me, and not worry about the opinions of everyone else. I was 34 years old when I took my first dose of hormones.
PornOCD: Did you ever confide in anyone how you were feeling?
Lana: No, I didn’t until I had started my transition.
PornOCD: How did your family and friends react when you told them?
Lana: Not so good. I only have a handful of family and friends left from my past. I feel blessed to have a great adopted family here in Kentucky. Without Lexis Steel, Raven Roxx, and Kimber Haven I wouldn’t be any where near as happy with life as I am.
PornOCD: When did you first view porn?
Lana: I was probably around 15 or 16.
PornOCD: When did you decide that a career in adult entertainment was for you?
Lana: I decided it was the direction I wanted to explore two years ago. I ended up making a few good friends along the way, and finally got my first shoot with Femout.XXX in December.
PornOCD: How did you feel on the day of your very first shoot? Tell us all about the shoot.
Lana: Lol well, the morning of the shoot we got an ice storm, so the three hour drive to Indianapolis for the shoot took five hours of white knuckle driving to make it. Once I finally got there, I was kind of drained from the stress of the drive, but still very nervous and excited at the same time. I walk in and see Radius Dark setting up. He is a super nice guy and really did a great job with making it fun and took my nervousness away.
PornOCD: Not the best build up to your first shoot it would seem. Did the shoot make you more sure that porn was the right career choice for you?
Lana: Yes it did! I didn’t feel I was looking my best for the first shoot. I felt I needed to redeem myself, so I really pushed myself to get in shape before the next one.
PornOCD: So at this point in your life and career, do you feel more comfortable in your own skin?
Lana: Yes, my level of confidence is so much higher. I am more outgoing. I am able to open up to close friends. It’s really nice.
PornOCD: For those who are reading about you for the very first time, describe yourself in five words.
Lana: Smartass, honest, driven, caring, fearless.
PornOCD: How long have you had your own website LanaHeart.com?
Lana: I think it was about two months ago that I launched it. It’s been a lot of fun.
PornOCD: So what great content can your fans enjoy and check out?
Lana: I have some great solo content, a super sexy shoot with Raven Roxx, and an extremely hot shoot with the amazing Lexis Steel dominating me. I am currently working on my first feature length film now. I can’t give any details yet other than it’s going to really put us on the map.
PornOCD: So who would you love to shoot a scene with? #PornBucketList
Lana: Top of the list would have to be my friend Brooke Zanell. She has been my biggest supporter from day one. Really I’m happy shooting with anyone. There are so many good people in the business.
PornOCD: How do you think TS Porn is going? Do you think it’s getting more popular year to year?
Lana: Yes, I think it’s growing, but with all the free porn out there, it’s hard on the industry as a whole.
PornOCD: How important do you find Twitter: @TS_LanaHeart for your career?
Lana: I think it’s a great promotional platform. Any free advertising I can get is a bonus.
PornOCD: How much time do you get to keep in touch with fans?
Lana: I usually spend a few hours every day communicating with fans. Without their support, I couldn’t do what I do.
PornOCD: What do you like to do to relax when you’re away from the lights and cameras of porn?
Lana: A few hours in the gym usually helps me wind down. Then I am not so guilty about stuffing myself with pizza and tacos.
PornOCD: So when you’re at the gym, is it all about the hard work or finding that right angle for the best gym selfie?
Lana: It’s about the workout. I’ve never taken a gym selfie.
PornOCD: What is your favourite part of your body?
Lana: My abs.
PornOCD: If you could have dinner with any three people alive or dead, who would they be and why?
