Back Stories – Amy Daly

There’s this thing about the sun – it’s actually got two sides.

Simultaneously life-giving, awe-inspiring, and beautiful, the sun can also be kinda harsh. The sun tells it like it is and has no problems letting you know when you’re being a little silly.

Enter Amy Daly.

I recently had the opportunity to chat with Amy, and I was literally taken aback by her thoughtfulness and sweet sincerity (not to mention her multi-dimensional beauty). But, just like the sunshiny sun, Amy has a razor’s edge. Running right alongside her charming demeanor – dare I say, part of her charming demeanor – was a perfectly reasonable tendency to tell it like it is.

It was awesome.

Amy, who’s described on her website as:

…a normal 20-something year old nerdy videogame playing skater girl from Los Angeles, California who just happens to be a transsexual as well! I decided to move to the Valley and start making porn just for fun and to show everyone what a normal trans-girl like me who just leads a normal life is like, and how beautiful our personalities and bodies can be. What you see is what you get with me!

…and I chatted about all sorts of things – her childhood on the beach, her experiences transitioning while simultaneously moving through a couple different segments of corporate America, her work in porn, and some changing trends impacting the adult industry.

It was a fantastic conversation – have a listen!!



Amy offers us insight about a whole slew of very relevant and important things, from the ins-and-outs of internet piracy and what’s likely a more representative picture of a career in adult performance today to issues related to privilege and the trans adult community.

I learned so much in this conversation, but my time talking with Amy absolutely flew by!! There was actually so much more I wanted to ask her – hopefully we’ll get to do a Part Two.


But in the meantime, you yourself can get to know Amy better and maybe – maaaybe – get the opportunity to chat her up!! Check out Amy’s site and her blog, and interact with her directly on her forum. You can also find her on the wilds of Twitter at @AmyDalyXXX.
