Born in the city of Liverpool in the North West of England, Tanya Tate has always been a confident, energetic woman ever since childhood. As Tanya divulged during an XCritic interview with column writer Apache Warrior;
“I definitely wasn’t shy. When I was a kid my mum used to say if she couldn’t find where I was she’d just open the door and listen for my voice because I was always the loudest. I was always on my bike or my roller skates. I was one of those loud kids that would just do anything. I enjoyed school but I was always the one who got in trouble for talking in class. I always used to get my work done, though, it just helped I could multi task very well. Being the oldest of my siblings I have always been independent, which has helped me to get to where I am in my career”.
Similarly, during her 2015 Adult Empire interview Tanya revealed how;
“I was a very boisterous child. Very loud, you could hear me coming around. I was a girl’s girl, always with my mates, carrying on and getting in to a bit of trouble. I think you can say I was a bit mischievous. The teacher could always tell where in the class I was sitting; they could hear me. But I always managed to do my work and got good grades”.
Tanya Tate : Adult Film Career
After leaving school Tanya did not immediately pursue her porn star career and instead worked a series of office admin jobs until she was 30 years old. However, Tanya’s energetic nature soon left her feeling bored and dissatisfied working behind a desk. Searching for an exciting new career avenue in the summer of 2008, Tanya stumbled upon the adult entertainment industry, researched the market via trade magazines and impulsively contacted a modelling agency which resulted in her shooting her very first adult film scene. As Tanya explained during her XCritic interview;
“I was working in an office doing admin work and I was really bored. I wanted something more exciting in my life. I watched an adult movie with a guy and I thought “Hey, I could do that…” I did some research, looked in trade magazines and I decided I was going to do it. It was a big decision. I knew that once I signed the model release forms there would be no turning back. I had some professional pictures taken and I sent a very nice email with the pictures to some of the UK companies and they liked me and asked me to come to London and shoot for them. It went from there”.
Although Tanya had always been a confident, extroverted woman, during this XCritic interview Tanya divulged that she was initially nervous about her appearing within her first adult film shoot;
“My first time on set I was really nervous, I had to perform in front of several people. At first I thought this would be difficult for me. Working with friendly professional people definitely helped me when I first started. I didn’t realize how much hard work, time and dedication goes into making a movie”.
In this manner Tanya shot her first ever sex scene with male porn star Danny D for Joy Bear Pictures. In no time at all Tanya became comfortable performing on set and started to feature in a wide range of DVD feature releases, website sex scenes and glamour modelling shoots throughout 2009. Amongst these pornographic productions included another Joy Bear Pictures DVD feature release titled Match Mates, Family Affairs 1 and 2 for Viv Thomas Productions, Teaching Billy’s Bad Behaviour for the Brazzers Network, Seduced by a Cougar for Pure Play Media, Rocco’s Back for Evil Angel and MILFs Lovin’ MILFs 3 for New Sensations.
Spurred on by the success of these DVD feature releases, Tanya began to make waves within the adult entertainment industry when she filmed her Television X series Tanya Tate’s Sex Tour of Ireland in 2010. This TV series featured Tanya travelling across Ireland in a campervan performing soft-core and hardcore sex scenes with genuine Irish men. This pornographic production even attracted mainstream media coverage in Ireland due to the fact that one of the amateur male porn stars with whom Tanya performed turned out to be Greg Jacobs, a professional athlete for the Wexford senior hurling panel and member of the Gaelic Athletic Association. Although Greg Jacobs denied appearing in this TV series at the time, in later interviews he admitted that he had featured in a sex scene with Tanya following a dare from his friends. Greg Jacobs was quoted in a Belfast Telegraph article in 2010 as stating;
“It was just a bit of fun. It was a dare from the lads…I don’t regret doing it…I’m not ashamed of what I did, I just didn’t want the family to know…No one knows, only a few friends and that’s the way I want to keep it”.
After Tanya Tate’s Sex Tour of Ireland was aired, Tanya began to amass a larger fan following and the attention of numerous adult film awards associations. Combining this risqué TV series with numerous lesbian, boy/girl and MILF-oriented DVD feature releases soon earned Tanya multiple “MILF of the Year” award wins and nominations. In fact, over the course of her porn star career Tanya has been awarded nine “MILF of the Year” titles from various prestigious adult film awards associations!

In addition to winning multiple adult film awards, Tanya has also hosted numerous adult entertainment awards ceremonies. For instance, in December 2013 Tanya hosted the 4th Annual SHAFTA Awards Ceremony which was held at the Rise Superclub in Leicester Square in London. Following her positive reception at this awards ceremony, Tanya was recruited to be France’s Hot Video magazine correspondent at the prestigious AVN Awards in January 2014. Throughout this star-studded event Tanya conducted numerous red carpet interviews with her friends and fellow porn stars; thus cementing her reputation as a multi-talented performer and extremely popular adult film personality.
Following her string of successful DVD feature releases and adult film award wins, in 2013 Tanya appeared within Deborah Anderson’s feature length documentary Aroused and also appeared within Anderson’s accompanying erotic photography book of the same name. This feature length documentary was released in theatres within the United States in the summer of 2013 before being commercially released across the globe in January 2014. This illuminating documentary offered an exclusive glimpse into the lives of several adult film stars whilst they were collaborating on the creation of Anderson’s erotic art book.
In 2013 Tanya also appeared in a British TV documentary titled Date My Porn Star. This documentary aired on Channel 4 within the United Kingdom and consisted of a film crew following one of Tanya’s devoted fans as they travelled from Britain to Tanya’s home in Los Angeles in order to meet their adult film idol.
During this time Tanya also posed as the cover model for the Turkish edition of FHM Magazine and appeared on the cover of AVN Magazine. Tanya explained during her interview with adult film blogger Guy Hut how she is extremely proud of these cover model shoots;
” I am happy with so much of what I have been able to accomplish, that to pick one seems to diminish the others and I something I don’t want to do. But I mean, being on the cover of FHM magazine, that is still something that I impress myself with. I never thought that ever happened to me, it was something that I didn’t even consider in the realm of possibility, but it happened…Being on the cover of AVN magazine was also a milestone for me. AVN is the trade magazine of the my industry and there have been bigger stars than me who never had the opportunity to be on the cover, but I did and It’s a great feeling…I can go on, …winning the awards, each one is special for its own reason from the SHAFTAs to the XBIZ to Nightmoves to the Fannys, they all mean something to me”.
Tanya Tate : Writer, Director & Producer
In 2010 Tanya began to explore alternative career avenues within the adult film industry such as writing a regular column for British adult entertainment magazine Ravers DVD. Tanya has also collaborated on feature articles for various mainstream media publications including a Cosmopolitan article which was published in August 2014. Titled “14 Weird Questions About Life As A Porn Star, Answered By Professionals” , this article featured Tanya Tate alongside fellow female porn star Samantha Bailey and Justin Rubeiro dos Santos, the porn director and founder of Joy Bear Pictures. Within this article Tanya and her adult film colleagues dispelled some of the most common myths about working within the adult entertainment industry. For example, during this article Tanya explained how she revealed her porn star career to her parents;
“I originally told my Mum when I decided I wanted to get into the industry. She said as long as I was safe then she fine with my career choice. My Mum was supportive; I even flew her to Los Angeles for her birthday one year and she had her birthday dinner celebrations with a bunch of porn stars…My other family I didn’t really tell, but I didn’t hide it either. But, eventually they got to find out. I had a cousin who found out through a watching a DVD. It must have been a shock when I turned up on the screen with Rocco Siefreddi“.
In addition to her writing and performing talents, in 2011 Tanya made her directorial debut with Tanya Tate’s The MILF Masseuse, a lesbian themed pornographic production which she directed for Filly Films. Tanya explained during a 2012 Luke Is Back interview that her directorial debut was instigated by Filly Films who contacted her after being impressed by her adult film performances. Speaking to Luke during this 2012 interview, Tanya enthused about the commercial release of The MILF Masseuse, conveying that;
“I’m really excited about it. Filly Films contacted me to direct a girl/girl movie for them. They had seen my movies and were impressed with my professionalism and work. And I like girls. I love beautiful woman and enjoy working with them. It’s all real with me. I mean, who wouldn’t want to spend a day making out with Jelena Jensen or Dani Daniels?…Filly Films presented me the opportunity. I got to choose my cast, a couple are cute new girls. Literally, it was their very first scenes. We came up with the theme of the masseuse because that lent itself to easy set-ups. The girls got to visit my massage salon and every scene ended in me giving them a happy ending”.
This DVD feature release would prove to be the first of many lesbian themed Filly Films productions directed by Tanya Tate as it paved the way for the release of Tanya Tate’s Runaways and Tanya Tate’s Tea & Muffin Party which were both distributed in 2012. Since 2011 Tanya has directed 12 DVD feature releases in collaboration with Filly Films including Brit School Brats, Lesbian Family Affair 1, 2 and 3, Mommy and Me 10 and Tanya Tate’s Babysitting Academy as well as the AVN Award nominated Tanya Tate’s College Cuties Seduce MILF Beauties, Brit School Brats 2: Rule Brit Tanya and the XBIZ Award nominated Tanya Tate’s Cosplay Queens and Tied Up Teens. Tanya Tate also directed a DVD feature release series for Penthouse in 2012 which was titled Tanya Tate’s Casting Couch.
Whilst promoting the commercial release of Lesbian Family Affair 2, Tanya discussed during a 2015 Adult DVD Talk interview that she would also like to direct and produce more boy/girl adult film shoots in the future;
“I would like to. I’m not exclusive to directing lesbian movies. It’s just that the company I direct for is exclusive to girl/girl. I would like to direct some more movies and if that includes boy/girl scenes, I’m up for that”.
Never one to rest on her laurels, in 2012 Tanya also released her own line of Fleshlight sex toys which were moulded from her body. These exclusive Tanya Tate sex toys were unveiled in March and a line of new Lotus, Primal and Vortex Sleeves were unveiled in August of the same year. As Tanya stated during an AVN press release;
“I’m thrilled that the new sleeves are now a part of the Tanya Tate Fleshlight franchise…I do my very best to listen to feedback from my fans. I really take to heart what they want and when they request something, I try my hardest to meet their needs. I kept hearing over and over that people wanted new sleeves for the Tanya Tate Fleshlight, so I was more than happy to make that happen. The guys at Fleshlight have been very cooperative and helpful and I’m thrilled that consumers have so many choices to make their Tanya Tate experience a pleasurable one”.
Tanya cemented her reputation as an international adult film business mogul when she formed her own PR firm, Star Factory PR, in 2014. The creation of this publicity company enabled Tanya to use her wide range of talents and firsthand film experience in order to represent some of the rising porn stars within the adult entertainment industry. During her 2015 Adult DVD Talk interview Tanya explained how;
“We have the publicity company, which is StarFactoryPR. At the AVN Awards 2015, we have a lot of people that have come on board with us. Some of them are only temporary. The ones that have come on are good people”.
In addition to the creation of Star Factory PR, 2014 proved to be a momentous year for Tanya Tate because it also marked the beginning of her collaboration with cougars.xxx ; a website owned by the Lily Devine SA Company. Based in Luxembourg, this collaboration marked the beginning of numerous online sex shoots and humorous MILF-oriented articles featuring Tanya Tate and her fellow international porn stars. Speaking about this collaboration in a 2014 AVN press release, cougars.xxx CEO Moriam Hassan Balogun commented that;
“It’s great having Tanya within the cougars.xxx team. As this year’s face of cougars.xxx we ensure our visitors some of the best there is out there. Tanya is not only an established professional with great ideas and a total understanding of what MILF fans want but also a major favourite within the industry…There is something about the MILF/cougar niche which is becoming more and more evident…It’s not just a trend used within the adult industry. Older women are looking for younger guys and vice versa. This is why we created an extra ‘hub for cubs’ with dating”.
In 2014 Tanya also began to host a live weekly radio show for Vivid Radio which was broadcast on the Sirius XM Radio network. Titled “The Tanya Tate Show”, this live weekly radio show offered fans another outlet through which they could interact with their favourite MILF performer!
In this manner Tanya has evolved from a popular female porn star within the MILF genre to one of the most respected business women within the adult film industry. During her interview with adult film blogger Guy Hut, Tanya explained how she began to forge the foundations of this reputation as soon as she began performing in pornographic productions way back in 2008;
“It’s weird, I studied a bit about this industry before I got into it. And when I got into it I was already about to enter my 30s. So I knew I had a finite time in front of the camera much shorter than most new performers who are just getting into their 20s…So I knew I had to have an exit strategy. And as I was getting going and I was also planning on how I was going to get out, which would include getting behind the camera as a director and establishing a website etc. When the opportunity arose to become a publicist I thought it was a good move it would keep me working within the industry and it was something that would be beneficial to my own career”.
Tanya Tate : Gamer Girl & Avid Cosplayer
As well as her passion for porn, Tanya Tate is also an avid cosplayer who has eagerly attended the annual San Diego Comic Con since 2010. During a 2015 Adult DVD Talk interview with adult film blogger Captain Jack, Tanya explained how her love of all things cosplay began;
“In 2009, I was actually in San Diego at the time. I saw the big San Diego Comic Con convention taking place and was wondering what it was. All the streets were filled with superheroes! I found out what it was then the next year, I found out I was going to be in America at the same time it was going on and thought I’d go. I got myself a costume. It was a white queen, white tube top and white gloves and a little white mini skirt and thigh high PVC boots. I put the costume on and you can’t park near the convention so I parked way far away. We started to walk in and everyone was asking to take my picture and it was kind of wild having people take my picture while fully clothed. (laughs) People really liked it so from there I started the cosplay blog which is www.justalottatanya.com and it grew from there. I use it to document my superhero adventures. I started collecting stuff and go to different conventions and it just grew”.
For her 2010 San Diego Comic Con debut Tanya cosplayed as Emma Frost (from the X-Men franchise). The overwhelming positive reception that Tanya received resulted in the publishing of her first book titled Tanya Tate: My Life in Costume as well as the launch of her own cosplay blog Just Alotta Tanya in 2011. The success of this personal cosplay blog soon led to Tanya securing writing contracts for the popular comic book websites WorldOfSuperheroes.com and Geekscape.net.
Whilst talking to Captain Jack, Tanya also divulged that she has always been an ardent comic book enthusiast and that her porn star stage name was actually inspired by her love of Marvel comics and the iconic comic book writer Stan Lee;
“It’s a Marvel thing. You know, like how Stan Lee used to remember his character’s names? They all had the same first and last name initials: Bruce Banner, Peter Parker, Susan Storm, Reed Richards, and Matt Murdock. At one point when I was living in the UK I was given the nickname of “Top Totty” at the gym I attended. I liked the initials TT, and so Tanya Tate was made”.
Describing her wide range of hobbies and interests during this Adult DVD Talk interview, Tanya also revealed that;
“I can ride a big motorbike. Yes, passed my big bike test and got to ride a motorbike around Ireland on the Tanya Tate Sex Tour of Ireland. My Nan taught me to knit when I was younger. I used to make Barbie doll clothes at school and sell them to the other kids. I am an avid cosplayer and have dressed up as several pop-culture characters. I love collecting and my collection of Funko Pops vinyl figures continues to grow bigger each month”.
Tanya contniues to host costume design contests via her personal cosplay blog whereupon the winner is treated to a lunch date with Tanya at San Diego Comic Con. Tanya continues to attend numerous comic book conventions in the UK and across the US in a wide range of costumes. Some of Tanya’s most popular cosplay costumes in recent years include Catwoman, the Invisible Woman, female versions of Thor and Green Lantern as well as She-Ra; a costume which she created exclusively for the Long Beach Comic Expo in 2012. Tanya always cosplays under the alter ego Lady Titan and has even appeared within some comic book anf fantasy novel themed pornographic productions including Game of Bones, Iron Man XXX and The Incredible Hulk XXX.
Tanya’s highly accurate cosplay costumes soon attracted the attention of media outlets such as Life.com, Getty Images, KTLA.com and NerdReactor.com amongst others. In fact, Tanya and her cosplay exploits were even featured in an IGN article titled Tanya Tate: Cosplayer Extraordinaire. In addition to these featured online articles Tanya has also been named the “Cosplay Girl of the Month” by ComicImpact.com, “Cosplay Babe of the Month” by Comic Ninja and “Fan Girl of the Month” by Panels on Page. What’s more, Tanya made history when she was named as Critiques4Geeks.com’s first ever “Geek Babe of the Month”.
In 2013 Tanya launched her own action figure line and co-created a comic book character under her cosplay alter ego Lady Titan . During this year Tanya also began to contribute to syndicated blog posts for HollywoodGoneGeek.com and FirstComicNews.com.
In Spring 2014 Tanya’s comic book character, Lady Titan, and her action figure line were unveiled at the Wonder Con pop culture convention which was held in Anaheim, California. Tanya unveiled another line of customisable vinyl action figures titled My Hero Toys at Stan Lee’s annual Comikaze Expo event in Los Angeles in October 2014.
Currently living between Los Angeles and London, England, Tanya continues to attend all manner of adult entertainment expos and comic book conventions, pose as a glamour model, perform as a MILF porn star, manage her publicity company Star Factory PR, direct her own film shoots and write articles for her cosplay blog as well as various comic book themed websites. Is there anything Tanya Tate can’t do?!
It is clear that Tanya loves the creative freedom that her adult film career allows and as such this MILF business mogul has no plans to retire in the near future. As Tanya puts it in her own words;
“Being a porn star, my job involves being made to look glamorous with amazing hair and makeup, dress up in sexy lingerie and have amazing orgasms with other hot people. Being a director for Filly Films, I like being able to come up with my own concepts, book my own cast and then watch as they bring to life the fantasies that I’ve come up with”.
