Up Close and Personal: Stacia Renoir-Winsmore

This next Smexy Vixen, DJ, and Adult Entertainer has been in the scene for quite some time and never does go unnoticed. You kind of would want be a friend of hers, as she is pleasant, witty and oh so COOL :). Not to mention her girlfriend is that sexy Director and DJ Zoey Winsmore. I was invited over for a one on one interview with her as I laid down between both of them. (Grins). Here's what Stacia had to say.

Alexandria Topaz: What brought you to Second Life?

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: A friend, who was bored and lonely in Second Life, talked me into joining. They promptly left.

Alexandria Topaz: How Long Have you Been in the "Porn Industry"?

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: I started in October of 2014. So, it will be four years this Fall.

Alexandria Topaz: How did you get started in Porn?

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: I came to one of the Saturday Porn Star parties, and starting meeting some people. That was when I met Zoey Winsmore, the director who has made most of the movies that I have appeared in. I had done my "Welcome To Porn" interview with Miss Emily just a week or so before I went to my first party.

Alexandria Topaz: How many film projects have you been a part of, be it as an extra, featured or Starring role? (please list Film/Director/Role. I like to give due credits where appropriate.)

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: I made my first porn appearance, as an extra that you probably miss if you blink, in Miss Emily's Leg's Wide Spread movie. My first co-starring role was in 2015 in Zoey's Foot Fetish: The Study (for which I was nominated for best Newcomer in the SL Porn Awards), when I played. I was also an extra in Erin Cedarbridge's Stepford Sluts series. After that I was one of the stars of Zoey's Business of Women series over 2015 and 2016. I was featured in Zoey's The Pre-Nup, which filmed in 2017 and came out in 2018.

I have my first solo movie coming out this summer with Zoey directing again. I don't know what the title will be, but I got to do some sexy yoga in it! The rest of the time I do my photography. Mostly of myself, but Zoey and a few friends have posed for me. You can see my pictures on my Flickr, and I have an in-world gallery of photos.

Alexandria Topaz: What are your favorite pieces of work that you were in (photos/videos, list up to 3, include links if available)?

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: I'm really proud of working with Zoey in her movies. Honestly, I don't think that I would have done SL porn movies if it wasn't for her. Being in her Business of Women series would be my favorite (, but that's only until her next video comes out. My favorite photos would probably be "I Touch Myself

and "Self-Exposure 

Alexandria Topaz: What major hurdle, if any, have you overcome to succeed?

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: I don't think that I have a "porn star" look. I have a lot of tattoos and I wear glasses, and I'm short and I like weird hair styles. People call that unique, but it also means that it can be harder for me to get into movies, or have people photograph me. I guess. I change some for other people's movies, but if someone wants me to model for their photos they get me.

Alexandria Topaz: How far would you like to take your Porn Star Career on SL? 

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: Definitely third base. Am I mixing my metaphors?

If you had an opportunity to work with a photographer or producer who would it be? 

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: There are some cool porn photographers like Whimsical Aristocrat or Graham Collinson who I would like to pose for. I would love to be in a piece by In Inaka or Dido Haus.

Alexandria Topaz: What have you learned being behind the scenes as a model/actress? What has that been like for you? 

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: It is work. I am constantly trying to better myself as a photographer, and that means a lot of studying about things like lighting and color and composition. I look at the work of photographers that I like in real life and try to see how I can integrate what they
do into my work. One of my favorite photographers is Richard Kern. He has this style of pornographic photography that combines fashion photography with a casual snap shot approach. I love it. One day I'll be that good.

Alexandria Topaz: Some roles can be scarce due to the lack of Directors at this time. What do you do while you wait for the next role?

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: I guess that porn movies aren't really a priority for me in Second Life. Being with Zoey and working with her means that if she's doing a movie, I've got some sort of a role to play in them. I've been doing more behind the scenes work with her movies, too, like building sets. My solo that she's in post-production on now uses a set that I built. 

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: I DJ twice a week, Wednesdays and Sundays, at a club called The Z&A Coffeehouse and that keeps me pretty busy. I've been a DJ in Second Life since 2009, and I've played at a number of indie music clubs and done a few Second Life events for Linden Labs. I've even been streamed into real life, and people have danced to my sets at a Second Life convention. And then my photography. Some people say that I take too many pictures.

Alexandria Topaz: Are you an active flicker fan? If so please list your link

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: Some people think that I post to Flickr a bit too much. You can find me here ( I keep all of my old photos up, because I think it shows that I am a work in progress. Sometimes I'll have some new photographer IM me through a group like SL Porn and they'll ask me how I get my pictures like I do. I always answer "practice," and show that it took me a lot of work

Alexandria Topaz: The business in itself can be a bit cut-throat for some folks. How has your experience been in getting to know others in the industry? 

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: I like to think that I'm a friendly girl in here. It is how I deal with the social anxiety issues that I have in real life. I am always talking to people at events and stuff. I guess because SL porn isn't my primary thing, it isn't competitive for me, so I'd rather just get to know people and hang out.

Alexandria Topaz: Do you feel like you constantly wanna smack the shit out of some of the actors/actresses in the business or do you find you get along with most of them?

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: I constantly want to smack the shit out of most of the world, but I work as a secretary in real life.

Alexandria Topaz: How long were you working before you felt comfortable in front of the camera?

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: Getting naked in Second Life isn't as big of a deal for me. I'm kind of shy, and a bit anxious socially, in real life, so for me SL is about being able to do the things that I couldn't or wouldn't be able to do in my real life. I guess that getting naked in Second Life is my sky diving. Seriously, I do it all the time. People are probably tired of seeing my pixel tits by now.

Alexandria Topaz: Are you stimulated by some of the sex with your co-stars - Be honest. :)

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: This is a secret that most people don't talk about, but sex being filmed in Second Life is boring as shit. Things might look great from the viewpoint of the director, but then you've got someone's hand poking into your belly, a foot is stuck where it shouldn't be, or an arm is bent into a weird position. Plus it can take a long time to get the shot right, so honestly I'm usually not even paying attention to what is going on.

Alexandria Topaz: If you could fuck one famous person, who would it be? Porn Star or Celebrity

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: Kate Nash, but preferably if she's wearing those gym shorts that she wore in GLOW. You know the ones.

Alexandria Topaz: What role would you not take part in if offered ? 

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: I do straight scenes, but honestly I'd rather stick to the lesbian stuff.

Alexandria Topaz: Do you have to make pre-sex small talk on set and if so are you comfortable with it? 

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: I ask them to name their favorite British indie rock band of the early 2000s, and silently judge their response.

Alexandria Topaz: Have you ever been involved in any super weird niche Porn?

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: Well, I don't consider it weird but my first starring role was in a foot fetish video. 10/10 would do it again.

Alexandria Topaz: It's been known that like real life.. some Porn Actors/Actresses are stalked by "Sl Fans". Have you experienced any of that? 

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: Well, I've been a Second Life DJ for nearly a decade, so I am familiar with groupies. Some people think playing Princess Superstar's "Fuck Me On The Dancefloor" is an invitation.

Alexandria Topaz: In your experience, what advice would you give a new comer looking to enter the scene? 

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: Don't expect things to happen all at once. I've been at this for a couple of years now, and I don't consider myself to be famous, or some sort of super star. Nothing like that. Do this because you're having fun, and because you look fucking fabulous naked and you want everyone to know. Also, if you can, be nice. If there's no reason to be a bitch, there's no need for it.

Alexandria Topaz: Any parting words for our readers?

Stacia Renoir-Winsmore: Is all of this art? I don't know. I know that working out photos and backdrops and lighting and all the little details of things that probably won't even make it into my final photos help to keep me sane some days. Do what you want to do because it makes your day better.
