Hi Arizona, it’s a pleasure to feature you on SimplySxy. Please share with us a little about yourself and where you’re from?
Thanks for having me! My name is Arizona and I’m a professional showgirl and pole dance instructor from Sydney.
How did you begin modeling?
My first ever photoshoot was some 10 yrs ago for the hair salon that did my hair at the time. It was a fetish/goth/alternative shoot and I was so awkward and nervous. Fast forward to last year – I started collaborating with photographers and other creatives via social networking and word of mouth. As I gained confidence in my performance skills, also came my confidence in my own skin to shoot more risqué projects.
You have many awesome tattoos! Is there an interesting story behind one of them?
I was one of those kids drawing on themselves growing up so to me, I’ve always just liked the way a decorated body looked with incredible artwork from artists I follow so I don’t necessarily have deep meanings attached to them. One of my favorites however, would have to be the Gizmo on my leg in a teapot which I think is kind of ironic ’cause you can’t get gremlins wet.
When did you pick up pole dancing and where did the interest come from?
I started pole dancing early 2011 out of a whim although I probably knew deep inside I secretly wanted to be a showgirl someday. I’ve always loved and dabbled in dancing or entertaining of some sort without prior proper training so pole dancing gave me that outlet of creating a show while getting fit, strong, flexible & confident at the same time.
Is pole dancing tough to pick up for someone who has never tried it before?
Pole dancing IS tough. There’s no sugar coating it. You will feel so inadequate, unfit, uncoordinated and that you will never be able to lift your own body weight for the life of you. But you have to persevere and you’ll get stronger and achieve so much than you can ever imagine and it’s an incredibly rewarding experience.
Which song will you say best describes you?
I’d be any Marilyn Manson song. Dark and tough on the outside but can be sweet and sensual on the inside and at most times makes no sense.
What’s one fun fact about yourself that people might not necessarily know?
I was a combat medic in the Australian Army Reserves in my early 20s.
If you could ask your future self one question, what will it be?
How many cats do I end up having in the future?
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions, Arizona. One last one before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Thank you! Sexy is confidence. Be it with clothes, with little clothes, lady-like or raunchy… Whichever you feel is the best version of you.
