Whenever possible, TRPWL likes to spotlight promising up-and-coming performers in the adult world. And if they can rock a pair of eyeglasses, that’s a plus.
Well, one night out on the Las Vegas strip last month, I ran into bespectacled 18-year old starlet Maya Grand, along with this other dude…
Using my super-secret powers of advanced perception, I immediately surmised that a TRPWL interview was in order. Without further ado, here’s the adorable Maya Grand..
Hey, Maya. When did you shoot your first XXX scene, and what led to you trying your hand at a career in adult entertainment?

My first shoot was on Valentine’s Day and I got a box of chocolates and a teddy bear. It was a pretty fun shoot as far as first scenes go.

I certainly watched my fair share. [smiles]
