Hump Day Q&A: A Great Pair of Reasons to Remember Jessica Vaugn
We’re not in Kansas anymore. Actually we never were in Kansas to begin with, but Jessica Vaugn is, which means we should probably get the fuck over Kansas ASAP. My email exchange with this 23 year-old model will stick out in my mind for two reasons, 1) it’s the first time a Hump Day subject answered one of my questions with a question (see her hilarious question below) and 2) she’s the first person I’ve ever come across to admit that they were unsure of their race. If that pair or reasons isn’t enough to get you to scroll down the page, there’s another pair of reasons that definitely will – her eyes. She likes it when you compliment her eyes.
What do you enjoy most about modeling?
Modeling has brought so much enrichment to my life! From the amazing places around the world I’d never, otherwise, be able to go; to the great people I meet along the way, the things to list about how modeling has enriched me is endless!
You said on your ModelMayhem page that you’re not sure about your race, but you enjoy when people guess. What’s the most common guess you get?
Well, often I am asked if I am Greek or Mediterranean. Now and then I get Hispanic … their guess is as good as mine!
What would be your dream job?
My “Dream Job” would be to be a celebrity makeup artist and travel the globe with my clients. I have pursued print work as a makeup and hair stylist, so, maybe one day I can!
You did an interview with MMA Sports magazine where you said you thought your breasts were your sexiest feature. Would you think I was lying if I said I thought it was your eyes?
Yes. I would think you’re lying. Have you SEEN my tits? Hahaha! Actually, no, I am happy with my eyes and appreciate men who notice. It suggests they’re looking in the right “place”.
That’s by no means a knock on your breasts, because they’re fantastic too. I noticed you made it a point to say they were natural, are you asked if they are real often?
Often people ask if my breasts are enhanced. Most people inside the photo industry know they are natural, but, I get emails from people who have seen me in a print publication or a blog and can’t help but inquire! It doesn’t bother me to be asked, I just want to make a point to my potential clients in the photo world that I have an all natural face and body.
You said you enjoy hearing other people’s stories and experiences. What’s the best story anyone has ever shared with you?
I love to listen to the things that make people themselves. All our life experiences have led us to why we are the way we are right now, and, I can’t help but want to know everyone’s story. Some have more fascinating ones than others with some odd twist of fate. I have a photographer friend who was getting his home repossessed some years ago. Flat broke. Lonely. Then his luck turned around with the dot com boom. He had the bright idea of a niche internet company and now contracts with the government and the private sector. Millions of dollars later, he gives back any opportunity he can. He is known between models as being generous when they are in need. He has done things strangers do not have to do for one another. And he does these things with no expectations in return. He has bought college cars when someone couldn’t get to class; helped get people jobs when they had no way of earning income. For me he bought a laptop knowing I didn’t have a computer to do my school work or business on. He is a good friend to me and many others. He used his success to make others lives better selflessly, and that, to me, is worth remembering.
You mention that you have bags and bags of new lingerie, is that only for your shoots or do you enjoy showing off the lingerie for the right guy?
My lingerie for shoots is pretty much just for shooting, which is the only way to keep it perfect for many shoots! However, I understand boys love to feel like a girl put thought into what she is wearing for him, so, I oblige subtle hints to mix it up with something sexy now and then. Most days I can be found wearing little tank tops and cotton shorts. I get told pretty often that is just as sexy as lingerie!
What would be a dream date for you?
The dream date would first be with a very intelligent and open minded man. If I am not first starting with a person I find engaging and an endless source of conversation, it’s doomed from the get-go! I would want to be picked up for the night and taken to a nice, lively, (but not too crazy) place to eat. I LOVE pasta! We’d talk the whole meal about hopes, ambitions, stories of the past, politics, cars… After that, I’d love to be taken outside on a warm night, lay under the stars, swing at the park, ride with the top down, anything where it was quiet and we could see each other in the moonlight.
