I talk to her on the phone Friday afternoon as she drives to KSEX.
She has a new website — myaluanna.com.
As a kid, Mya (who’s Thai and French) wanted to be a doctor. “I went to school for dental hygiene.”
“My parents didn’t care what I wanted to do. So Iong as I had a degree in something.”
“My parents know what I do now and they totally support what I do. My whole family knows what I do.”
Luke: “What kind of crowd did you hang out with in high school?”
Mya: “I was real athletic. I was a cheerleader. I was in gymnastics. I played a lot of sports. I played softball, volleyball. I ran track.
“I was a good kid growing up.”
Luke: “What was your reputation in high school?”
Mya: “That I was very flirtatious. That I was a tease.”
Luke: “What led you to get into the porn industry?”
Mya: “I started out dancing in Boston. I moved to Vegas. I wanted to work in bigger clubs. I started modeling. I got into artistic nudes. I wanted to do more. I get bored easy. I’m very spontaneous. I started doing simulation modeling. I started doing solo videos. From there, I got into the Adult industry [in December of 2005].”
Luke: “What do you love and what do you hate about being a porn star?”
Mya: “I love that I get to share my sexuality.
“Oh crap. You have crazy drivers out here.
“I feel like that when people watch my videos, I get turned on knowing that I can enhance someone’s relationship by them watching my videos.
“What I don’t like are all the reviews people write about me. But what can I do about that? I just ignore it. I know who I am and what I can do.”
Luke: “How has the porn industry affected you?”
Mya: “When I first started in the industry, I was blown away by the people I met, and the money. And now it doesn’t faze me at all. I come home and leave my work [behind]. I find myself more tame than I have ever been in my life. I hang out at home, with my friends. I don’t go out as much as I used to. I used to go out to the clubs every night and get drunk. I’d flirt with guys and make them think they’re going to get inside of my pants. They’re not going to. That’s sad. It’s not fun anymore.
“I love being normal. At the same time, I do have a wild side. This is who I am.”
Luke: “How has being a porn star affected your relationships with men?”
Mya: “Ohmigod. When I first meet a guy, I don’t really tell him what I do until he’s worthy. A lot of guys I’ve dated aren’t in porn. They get jealous of what I do. They don’t really understand so it doesn’t work out.
“I don’t tolerate anyone who’s dating me to be jealous. I just want them to trust me. I know where they’re coming from but this is what I do and they’re just going to have to accept me for who I am and what I do.”
“As of now, I wouldn’t leave the industry for anybody.”
Luke: “Did you lose any friends from becoming a porn star?”
Mya: “Oh no. Not at all. They all know what I do and they’re all supportive. They help promote me.”
Luke: “What are your life goals?”
Mya: “To become a businesswoman. I want to open my own Thai restaurant.”
“I don’t have time to go back to school now. I’m so busy.”
