Grooby Interview #1: Kelly Shore

This is the first in an on-going series of interviews of people in the transsexual adult industry. To see more about these interviews and why we’re conducting them, check out my personal blog at Grooby Steven Blog.

Kelly Shore has had an internet presence for a number of years, usually coming across as a “bimbo” (which most people have guessed is a role) and an amiable contributor to forums and chat rooms. However, beneath those blonde curls she has managed to orchestrate an adult career launch, simultaneously on a number of high profile websites as well open her own pay site.

The last few months have seen her appear on Kink’s TS Seduction, Shemale Club and Shemale Yum as well as appearing in Transsexual Babysitters #8 .

In this interview I wanted to know more about Kelly, her life and what she thought of the adult industry.

Interviewed on 19th Nov, by Grooby Steven, via email.

GroobyS : You have had a web presence for some time, why did you decide to start doing adult modeling     and  performing in summer of 2008?

Kelly Shore : I have been going back and forth with the idea for a few years.   I did webcam for years and I even toyed with doing a video for a small production company,  LL Blackmaster.  I just wasn’t sure how to go about it on a big scale.  I knew I could do the job but needed the right contacts.   I could have done Shemale Yum but it wouldn’t have given me all the contacts I needed to work for other companies.   I could be like other girls and hope my photo set would stand out but I wanted to do it big having multiple sets out at once.    I started with Kink (TS Seduction) and then  Wendy Williams and Vin Deacon give me contacts for other companies.   So I headed off to LA for  my first DVD “Transsexual Babysitters 8” and appeared on the cover!  I shot for Shemale Club and with Buddy Wood for Shemale Yum in the space of a few days.   My second DVD, Transsexual Cheerleaders and more websites including a return to Kink!
SMC Revenue Shemale Club offered to do my website (they run  and it had taken off very well.  I am surprised of the fan base and the success so far andI have nothing but gratitude to the producers and directors for giving me the chance.  Without the fans that follow my work,  I’d be nowhere!

Grooby S: What is the most difficult part about being a transsexual adult performer?

Kelly Shore: The most difficult part I’ve found so far is the criticism and not letting it affect you.  Not that I am new to that but you do worry if you are performing well or if you look good for the camera.  I want to look and perform my best for the viewers and sometimes I get so focused on that it makes me nervous.

I usually have to take a breath and move on!

Grooby S : What scenes do you enjoy the most?

Kelly Shore : I enjoy the threesome scenes : guy,  girl and me.  I think its fun!  Its like the best of both worlds everywhere (smiles).   I think most guys fantasize too about having a transsexual and a female together at the same time so I get turned on, knowing I’m turning them on.

Grooby S : Are there anything scenes you won’t do?

Kelly Shore : I don’t want to be one of those performers that say “No!” but I am still trying to open my mind to performing with another TS,  getting past that will come though.   However I won’t do scat films or urination.  Sorry fetish lovers … but I might pee on someone if the price is right! LOL.

Grooby S: When did you first discover you were transgendered and when did you start wearing female clothes?

Kelly Shore : I don’t want to sound like a TV sitcom but I knew there was something wrong when I was 5 and my mom was giving my cousin and I a bath. I noticed we had different deals.  I wanted what she had. I just knew that what I had wasn’t meant to fit me!

As far as dressing,  good lord I started dressing in front of my Mom when I was about 5!  Wearing her shoes, putting a towel on my head acting like it was my long hair, and begging for Barbies and My Little Ponies.   My dad would come home with something for a boy and I’d scream my head off.   So they always knew there was something “different” about their “son”.   My friends were mainly girls and I always dreamed of a husband rather than a wife.   At age 12,  our family relocated to a small town of 2,500 people in Central Illinois called El Paso.   Here I met two of my best friends in High School,  Carolyn and Jackie.   Well

living in a small town you get bored pretty easily so you think of ideas of how to entertain yourself, whether it be walking the strip downtown or hanging out in the country. One night during summer vacation,  Jackie suggested that we should dress me up as a girl.   At first jokingly and then it became more serious.    Before I knew it I was getting made up and my shaggy bowl cut hair curled.

I was so happy when it was done even if I had blue eye shadow and ruby red lipstick.  I felt at peace finally.  I remember walking around the town with them and then heading over to Jackie’s house, her Mom was very accepting and she always knew, so it wasn’t a surprise to her. She suggested that I talk to my family if this is how I  truly felt.

Nervous and scared I ended up calling my Mom on the phone …   she had to say “Hello?” twice before  I just blurted it out that I had to tell her something about my sexuality.  She was like “Honey, either you are gay or you feel like a girl, I hope its the second, so which is it?” I was shocked she knew the whole  time!

My whole family accepted it so it wasn’t like a transition the only thing that changed was pronouns and my name. I attended El Paso High School as a female, I still go back there regularly.

Grooby S: Does your family know about your adult career and what are their thoughts?

Kelly Shore : Yes, they know about  it  I wouldn’t hide it from them.   I’m not ashamed of working in this industry They think as long as I am safe and tested they have no issue.  My family has always been supportive and open minded!

Grooby S : Do you have TG friends or hang out with other transgenders?

Kelly Shore : I don’t really have a lot of TG friends.  I have counseled many during my activist work but tend to have more female friends.   I have made recent friends being in the industry which is nice to ahve someone to relate to in the same field.

Grooby S: Which TG’s do you admire or look up to in the adult industry?

Kelly Shore: I admire Danielle Foxx for finally going after what is important to her
and being true to herself.   She is just a wonderful performer.  I also admire Wendy Williams for being so hard working and dealing with the crap she puts up with!

Grooby S: Which TS adult models do you think are the prettiest – and which are the best performers?

Kelly Shore : Danielle Foxx for being pretty and great performer!   Jesse is a wonderful performer that gets overlooked! Kimber of course is lovely as is Hazel Tucker but I’ve yet to see her performance. Vicki Richter of course is an awesome performer, as is Gia Darling.

Grooby S: What future plans do you have for your website and your career?

Kelly Shore: I hope to bring more girls in on my website to eventually maybe get it on with one of them … I hope to do more mainstream work eventually!

Grooby S: Why should someone join your website instead of seeing your photos on the other websites that you appear on?

Kelly Shore : My site will be the only site you will see me bottom!   Also you can suggest what I wear and do in the updated video and photoshoots – I listen to my members!  It’s also a less expensive that those other sites … so you are getting all Kelly for a lot less!

Grooby S: “If I wasn’t a transsexual video performer I would be a ………” ?

Kelly Shore : ….. Housewife! LOL

Grooby S: Can you think of any questions that I should ask the next model I interview?

Kelly Shore: What matters most to you?   How do you think porn girls are looked upon
and misinterpreted?
