A Keene Eye on Sunny Leone

Imagine pulling your car into a Jiffy Lube and having a sexy young girl telling you to leave the engine running while asking if you wanted a full service lube job? That was one of Sunny Leone's prior jobs before showing the world her sexual side.
Born to parents from from northern India, both from Punjabi origin. Although, she is from Indian decent, she grew up in Ontario, Canada. Sunny was very athletic growing up, she played street hockey with the boys, and loved to ice skate at a nearby lake, played on a soccer team and basically loved all physical activity.
Sunny went to a catholic school and first kissed a boy when she was 11. She grew up with strict, conservative parents wanting her to really concentrate on her schooling. Studying to be a pediatric nurse and keeping her nose in the books, she met a classmate that introduced her to the right people to get her first penthouse layout, becoming Penthouse pet of the year in 2003 and being awarded 100k was the turn of her new career when the good girl goes bad.
Explaining that to her parents before a dinner, didn't go too smoothly. There was tears, confusion and a ruined dinner. But, they soon realized they raised a smart daughter and stood behind her.
Sunny didn't have intentions of becoming a porn star. She was fairly shy and niave to sex. She realized she was bi-sexual in her teenage years, entering the industry doing girls. She swore she would never do boy/girl scenes, it took her time to get adjusted from book-worm to porn star, in 2007 was her first boy/girl film with her then fiance Matt Erickson and Vivid girl Monique Alexander. The DVD made amazing sales. It's currently under the top 50 DVD sales of all time.
If Sunny learned one thing from her parents, it was hard work is the key that opens the door to success. Adult film stars are having more success then ever and Sunny Leone is a perfect example, she walked into this industry smart, creative, determined and full of dedication. She is a highly successful business woman. She is now president of her own production company with her partner Daniel Weber, ''SunLustPictures.com''. She has her very own iphone app, featured on Fox Reality's My Bare Lady 2, acting as a mainstream star, she recently wrapped a Will Ferrel feature film due in theaters this year and still making movies with Vivid that are chart toppers.
I recently photographed Sunny in Lodi, NJ at a well known all-nude cabaret freshly renovated with a new shower. I walked in and was brought over to Sunny in the middle of dinner with some of her friends. Sunny was so nice. She was in the middle of pulling over a chair for me to sit down when I told her, ''Oh no, Sunny, it's cool, I don't want to disturb you', she said, ''Don't be silly, sit down''! I then politely refused, I didn't want to intrude.
I went and grabbed a drink and set up my camera. Sunny came out in this sexy police uniform. I was very impressed with her dance. She is highly energetic, keeps the audience captivated, involves them with games, covers herself with whipped creme and if that didn't give you a chubby then the wet shower she took certainly would. She got dressed and spent more time than she should talking with her fans. You'll be surprised to see how down to earth and connected to reality Sunny is. She is impressive on many levels.
It's film stars such as Jenna Jameson and Sunny Leone that embrace this industry and take it to another level that make it such a success.
