This month we proudly present England’s latex model queen Saffron Taylor. She’s been changing the way people look at the shiny, sexy material for the past few years. Find out about her first time with latex, her wild side and clubbing habits, and a lot more in this excellent interview! Enjoy!
Where did you grow up and where do you call home now?
I was born in England and I still live there, so it will always be my home.
How did you get into modeling?
In 2007, I met a very talented photographer who encouraged me to take some test shots and I was amazed at how the photos turned out! I was no longer the skinny, shy kid. I was a tall and elegant model. In that same year, I created my first social network account and uploaded a few photos. Within a couple of months I received many requests for paid modelling assignments, interview requests and online features. The look of many famous glamour models were a real inspiration to me, so my initial focus was on glamour modelling along with swimwear and occassional fitness modelling. It was only in 2008 when I shot my first latex shoot that this niche became a phenomenal success with my fans. From then on, after many requests to see me wear latex more often, I decided to pursue this as my specialism.
Would you agree that you’re England’s Latex Queen?
That would be such an honour to be considered as England’s latex queen. Who knows, maybe I am, lol.
How did you feel the first time you put on a latex outfit?
To be honest, my first experience of latex was an absolute disaster. It was definitely a learning curve for me as I had no idea what I was doing. I remember pulling on a pair of purple latex stockings and struggling for half an hour to simply get them half way up my leg. Only to experience the dreaded rip when I eventually got them on. Not an experience to be favoured, although I did learn a few things from this, such as using a lubricant on my skin before even attempting to touch latex. Then the gloss… hmmm it just didnt look like the shiny brochure latex adverts. It was duller than a dish cloth, lol. I later learned that using a silicone glossing aid, really does that trick of obtaining that super high gloss. Ever since that day, my experience of latex had improved in leaps and bounds.
What is it about modeling in latex that excites you?
There is nothing like the feeling of skin tight latex next to my skin, as it emphasizes my every curve. I just love it! I feel completely empowered when wearing skin tight rubber latex. There is no material like it. It literally becomes a second skin. I just love the shine and light reflections latex gives off, for example the beautiful combination of a sexy latex catsuit with matching latex corset and a pair of my enormous heels. Most men become completely helpless and distracted in the presence of a big boobed latex clad model.
What criteria do you use to choose your latex modelling clothes?
Tailored latex that is custom made by quality latex designers. There are many cheap latex companies but you get what you pay for and if its a cheap knock off of the real thing, then it will not last. Investing in only the best quality latex garments will last a lifetime.
If latex wasn’t an option, what would your second choice?
Anything that is tight and shiny. As well as latex, I have also done quite a few shoots wearing skin tight metallic outfits.
How does it feel to wear such tight clothes during a photoshoot?
When the latex is glossed up it looks fantastic and I always enjoy my work, however there were a few occasions when shooting abroad in the heat wearing latex was almost unbearable. In the heat, latex makes me sweat like hell, but in cold environments latex feels much colder than it actually is. So yes, I have had my uncomfortable moments as I am sure many other models have experienced. Thankfully, I have a great photographer who has patience of a saint:)
What do you think is your sexiest body part?
I would have to say my legs, mainly because I have received to many kind compliments regarding them over the years. They are quite long and slim and are accentuated when I wear tiny latex mini skirts, stockings and catsuits.
At what age did you first realize men would melt in your presence?
To be honest, I was actually quite a shy kid. I suppose around the age of 17 I realized guys were being extra nice to me, I had no idea why. I suppose they wanted to explore my great mind and intellectuality, lol.
What is the single biggest event that boosted your career?
I wouldn’t say there was one single event, but more of an ongoing series of opportunities and work projects have have really boosted my career over the years. I was featured at Playboy.com in 2009 and this definitely put my name on the map.
What do you do in your downtime?
Sometimes I don’t know the meaning of the word downtime, lol. I am a bit of a workaholic, but when I eventually tear myself away from my work which I love so much, you will still find me active in a different way… working out at the gym :) I am definitely a healthoholic too and love to keep myself in tip top shape all year round.
Give us a fun fact about you.
I used to have a bit of a wild side to me. Myself and one of my girl friends got so drunk in a night club and had a crazy fun food fight in the clubs restaurant. We made such a mess that we got banned from that specific night club for three months, lol. It is definitely not something I am proud of, as I have calmed down quite a lot since then. I still like to go out and party occasionally, but food fights and crazy drunken behaviour is no longer on the agenda for the night ;)
Best or worst pick-up line used on you?
I have nothing against a funny pick up line, but drunken, disrespectful men are a real turn off for me.
What’s the most common question that people ask you?
The question I get asked the most from both guys and girls is “Where do you buy your latex outfits from”, I get so many emails asking me this, it is very suprising.
Name anyone, alive or dead, who you would love to meet. Why did you pick that person?
I would have liked to have met Linda McCartney, she was such a nice lady and a dedicated animal lover. I love her for that. I would also like to have a really geeky conversation about the universe and planets with Professor Brian Cox.
Give a shout out to your fans…
