Tyler Is Terrific!

Trans performer/director Tyler St. Syn performs and directs for Kennston Films and happily stars in many of their new releases. Get to know him below and check out his movies!


What were you like back in school? Who did you hang out with/date?
"I was a hot mess LOL! Going through puberty in the wrong body, awkwardly perverted, nerdy...I hung out with all the other misfits, future queers, skaters, punks. I grew up in a small town. It sucked."

Were you a porn fan before you got into the industry? Who were your favorite porn stars/favorite porn movies?
"I was raised a porn fan LOL! My grandpa was a huge porn fan and he always had porn in the living room magazine rack. Apparently, when I was about 4, they realized I would always pick the Penthouse or Hustlers to look at, so they got put in the bathroom until they busted me spending hours in the bathroom! I grew up on old 70's/80's porn. 'Debbie Does Dallas', John Holmes, Ron Jeremy, Linda Lovelace but I really liked Jeanna Fine. She was one of the first porn stars that looked like she really, really liked fucking women. And it was fucking hot! I was obsessed with all the 'No Man's Land' movies! Before I transitioned, I was into Crash Pad Series because they showed people fucking who were more like me. When I found Bonus-hole Boys and Kennston, I was like 'yaaaaaaassssssss!'"

How did you become a porn performer? What led you down that career path?
"I have always joked about doing porn. I worked in a porn/fetish shop for awhile. I went to school for film/design so when I had a random Facebook conversation with Dicky Johnson, who was looking for models in Philly at the trans health conference, which I was already attending, I got brave and sent him an email. I filmed 'Trans Men Adventures 3' with Michelle Austin and also a solo for 'Dicky Johnson's Pussy Boy Pickups'. I also got to help film a few other projects while we were there."

What/who do you want to do on-camera that you haven’t done yet?
"Ha! Well, I haven't been in too many scenes yet, so most things are open but I really wanna see a MTF/FTM gangbang happen! I love to fuck and get fucked so I would love some topping scenes and I really want to work with Chelsea Marie. She has that dirty girl look in her eyes, like she would be fun to get fucked by!"

Who is your performer to work with so far and why?
"Definitely Michelle Austin. She really loves what she does. And she is constantly working, helping others in the industry, and really likes to know what her fans want to see. She wants to see FTM trans porn get bigger, and is always evolving her vision for Kennston Productions. Plus she is smoking hot!"

You seem to really love your fans and respond to them a lot on Twitter. Tell me how having this fan base has changed your life.

"I'm pretty socially awkward in person, so it's a lot easier on social media to interact but yeah, I love to hear from fans. Tell us what you like, what you want to see! Tell us we're hot, that you love what we do! Don't just send a dick pic. We are just regular people who fuck on film!"

What do you love most about doing solo scenes?
"I love knowing that someone is getting off watching me get off. The fantasy scenes that start to go through my mind make me squirt! Mmmmmmm."

What do you enjoy most about working for Kennston Films?
"It's a family. Dicky, Michelle, Eddie Wood, especially. Everybody is really supportive of each other."

What fetishes do you have that you think that your fans would be surprised by?
"I am a dirty mofo. I am into a lot of things! I used to be into play piercing, and I am still a big fan of biting.I also really enjoy sensory play."

What career goals do you have for yourself?
"I really like that I get to help produce, direct, shoot video, edit now, representing trans people fucking and getting off and enjoying their bodies. I love watching porn. I know what Turns me on, and so I shoot the kind of porn I think is hot. So my goal is to shoot lots of hot porn, if it wins awards cool, but it's way cooler when people say 'hey, I saw that scene or movie and it's one of my faves."

What do you think that people get wrong the most in how they make love to someone?
"I think people worry too much that sex might be awkward, or bad or they won't be good at it or that what turns them on may turn some one else off. So, I think communication is extremely important and it's about learning what gets each person off. Everyone is different. Don't be afraid to try new things. You never know, you might enjoy it! I always say I will try almost anything once, twice if I came the first time!"

Who are your role models in porn and how/why do they inspire you?
"Don't laugh...Ron Jeremy. Ron gave those of us who aren't chiseled Adonis' hope. To me, Ron is a god. He's still doing his thing, being pervy and he gets to bang all the time. So, there's hope for me!!"

What about your career in porn makes you the happiest?
"Honestly, getting to hear from fans that think it's hot to see me get fucked or that they want to see more or really like something/someone that I shot, especially if it got them off! I end up jerking off to everything I shoot, but it makes me happier to know someone else got off too."

What is the best mainstream movie you have seen recently?
"'Wonder Woman' is super bad-ass! I love movies with super strong female leads! Plus, I grew up watching 'Wonder Woman'."

How about the best porno movie? Is there someone whose movies you like to watch who is working now?

"I'm a huge fan of Nikki Hearts and Leigh Raven. I love Aubrey Kate, Trixxy Von Tease, Dicky Johnson, Eddie Wood. Filming Phoenix Savage and Mason Lear was super hot, so I now watch both of their work a lot. And god damn Victor Belmont is pretty to look at!"

Are you into toys to get yourself off alone or are you low-tech?
"I love using toys to get off! I actually have a huge sports bag full of dicks and toys!"

If you could fuck any celebrity, who would it be?

"Hmmmm, a threesome with Miley Cyrus and Halsey. Mmmm but Adore Delano.... I just gave myself chubbies thinking about it!"

What is coming up for you?

"Filming some really cool projects with Michelle Austin and hopefully doing more shoots with some others. Follow me on Twitter for behind the scenes and updates!"

Is there anything you want to say to your fans here at Fleshbot?
"Thanks again for your time and thank you, Holly! I love reading Fleshbot interviews because you get to find out so many interesting things about people! Thanks for watching, jerking off, getting hard, getting wet, and getting off with me! #followyourwetdream"
