Sandra Shine is an erotic legend – a stunning model who made her name as part of the iconic dream team on our sister site Viv Thomas, starring in some all-time classics, before becoming a successful agent and make-up artist, and then a talented movie director.
Sandra uses her experience on the other side of the camera to devastating effect, creating a rapport with her models that allows her to capture their authentic sexuality in her original and highly arousing stories. She’s already become a superstar director on Viv Thomas with her up-close and juicy lesbian movies, so it’s a thrill to welcome her to The Life Erotic, where she can explore her kinky side. So far she’s had two movies on TLE – “Pantyhose,” with sexy Nia Black in heels and hose, and “Voyeur,” featuring cute Melody Petite peeping and masturbating – with more to come. I’ve had a sneak preview of a couple, and they are so hot! Of course I had to ask her about it…
Sandra, do kinky games turn you on?
Sandra Shine: To be honest I am a pretty normal girl enjoying normal things. I love erotica, I love seeing two beautiful girls enjoying each other’s body, and I love seeing kissing. I like women’s bodies, especially the tits, ass and feet. I love pretty feet. Now that I’m shooting all kinds of fetish stuff I realize how much some things turn me on. It’s pretty new for me too. Another turn on is sex in unusual places. That has always been my thing. I’ve done that a lot and now I get to shoot it with other girls, it’s very exciting. I have a lot more ideas for this!
How about BDSM?
SS: I got to shoot some soft bondage and more kinky stuff and I was very surprised by the effect it had on me. It’s hot, especially with a girl who really enjoys fetish in her real life. To me, fetish scenes shot in high quality with a bit of romance involved are such a turn on. I’m sure I’m still learning about myself and my sexuality as I get turned on by new things. I’m happy I’ll be sharing these new experiences with TLE!
How do you look back on your time as a model?
SS: Everybody in the business knows that working with Viv was always top class. Meaning great scenarios, beautiful locations, and he only shot top models. The very first time I shot with Viv was at the dawn of my modeling career, I had just turned 18 and he took me to Spain, to a beautiful villa. It was a wonderful place. Back in those days he shot on film, not digital. Yes, it was that long ago! Viv and his wife, Avril, said they thought I might have a very successful career, and it turned out they were right. Viv followed my career over 13 years in the business, we shot a lot of scenes and movies. Viv always treated the models very well, shooting with his crew was a lot of fun. I think one of the reasons why the scenes are so good is that the models loved shooting them. Viv really had an eye for seeing which models were genuinely into girls, and he kept shooting them all over and over again. It’s hard to choose one movie or scene that is my favorite, but I had my very own movie, "Butterfly," that everybody loved and so did I. It’s basically about me and my sexual fantasies coming true. It was directed and shot in a very nice, romantic way. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s time to watch it!
Do you still model?
SS: Due to a back injury I stopped shooting for a while, and in the meantime I started doing camerawork for Viv and I really enjoyed it. So I never went back to modeling again. Never say never, but now I’m a very confident director and camerawoman and I’m not planning on going in front of the camera again. We will see though…! I really enjoyed being a model. I started as a fashion model when I was 16, then at 18 I started to take my clothes off. Then I slowly went into lesbian scenes. I think lesbian movies are so sexy. I loved traveling, being in professional make-up and sexy clothes, I could live out all my sexual fantasies in front of the camera. I was a Penthouse Pet in the US numerous times, and I’ve been on the cover of all the top magazines. I think my success comes from the fact that I love what I am doing.
How did you learn to direct?
SS: I always watched and asked questions about production. I learned a lot from Viv on location. I always had good ideas about scenes that everybody loved, so we shot many of my own ideas. I learned about camerawork from the photographer and videomaker who shoots for my site, Gabor Orban. Then I started experimenting and learned a lot on my own. I think that’s how it goes. If you are interested in something you keep doing it and you get better and better. I enjoy this new way of being creative in the business. Now I’m not in front of the camera but behind it, and I can still fulfil a lot of my own fantasies with other models. Models love to pose for a camerawoman. And sometimes they get turned on when I say, “Wow, this is so damn sexy!” and the scene gets even better.
Having a woman as sexy, smart and fun as Sandra behind the camera certainly pays dividends when it comes to shooting hot movies! Look out for much more from her here on TLE soon.
