After Yearlong Hiatus, Taryn Thomas Returns to Adult

LOS ANGELES — After a year-long hiatus, adult star Taryn Thomas has returned to the business with a new plan to take control of her career.

"I needed a break to pursue other options," she told XBIZ. "I just wanted to take some time off, clear my mind and make sure porn was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life."

Thomas took a break from the adult industry about a year ago to decompress and study cosmetology. After returning to the industry, she has secured new representation with Lisa Ann's Clear Talent Management. She's also made plans to have her breasts enlarged to a D-cup and have liposuction.

"When I went on my break, I didn't exactly continue to exercise," she said. "I'm going to get some work done, though I don't want to look too plastic."

Thomas also mentioned some difficulty with her personal website, TarynThomas.com. She said she plans to let her current site stay as it is while building a new site that she plans to run herself.

Thomas' current site is run by Bimini Bucks.

"I just want to make sure that this time when I come into the industry, it goes the way I want it to, and not how someone else wants it to," she said.

Despite her time spent studying cosmetology during her hiatus, Thomas said she has no plans to pursue make-up design work in the industry. She will, however, continue to plan events through a small company she started during her break: Taryn It Up Entertainment.

Thomas started the event-planning company in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale, Ariz., where she moved for her hiatus. Although she spent most of her time securing talent to appear at gentlemen's clubs, Thomas said she hope to throw large-scale rave parties while keeping control of her career in adult.

"I started doing porn because I wanted to do it," she said. "When I was working in porn, I woke up with porn, ate lunch with porn and slept porn. It consumed me, and I want it to consume me again, but on my terms this time."
