Tanya Tate (born 31 March 1979 in Liverpool, England, U.K.) is a British adult model, porn director, writer, international cosplayer, and multiple award-winning porn star.


She entered the British adult industry in 2009[2][3] and now divides her time between London and Los Angeles. Her stage name is inspired by her interest in comic books and attributed to the manner in which Stan Lee named his characters with the same initial in their first and last name.[4] After beginning her porn career, Tate began contributing to a regular column for British adult magazine Ravers DVD in 2010.[5]

Later that same year Tate made headlines in Ireland after it was discovered that one of the amateur men who participated in the filming of her Television X series Tanya Tate’s Sex Tour Of Ireland, was Gaelic Athletic Association player Greg Jacobs. Tate traveled the countryside in a camper van meeting genuine Irish men and filmed both softcore and hardcore pornography.[6] Jacobs denied that he appeared in the video,[7] but then admitted, "I don't regret doing it", noting that he didn't want his parents to know. He appeared in the video following a dare from his friends.[8] Tanya Tate's Casting Couch series ended in March 2013.[9]

Tate directed her first movie for Filly Films[10] called Tanya Tate's The MILF Masseuse in 2011.[11] Her work as director for Filly Films continued in 2012 with two titles Tanya Tate's Runaways and Tanya Tate's Tea & Muffin Party.[12]

Tate is outspoken about her industry and was quoted in a story about the 2013 AVN Awards for which she was nominated for an award. She stated, "If you are more popular with the fans, companies are more likely to book you for their production," "Being nominated for awards help build your recognition with your fan base. People that win male and female performer of the year are generally solid consistent talent that are open to many 'levels,' and some of these performers already have higher basic rates than others."[13]

On 5 December 2013, Tate was the host of the 4th annual SHAFTA Awards at the Rise Superclub in Leicester Square. She was also nominated for several awards that night and won MILF of the Year for the fourth year running.[14]


Since her 2010 San Diego ComicCon convention debut dressed as Emma Frost, Tate has gained the attention of several media outlets such as Life.com, Getty Images, KTLA.com and the Orange County Register to BleedingCool.com, NerdReactor.com, Cosmic Book News and GirlsGoneComic.com. Earlier in the year, Tate was featured by IGN.com in an interview article called Tanya Tate: Cosplayer Extraordinaire.[4] In that interview, she explains how the stage name she uses for her adult industry performances was inspired by how comic book writer Stan Lee named his characters using the same letter in their first and last names. Tate was also named the Cosplay Girl of the Month by ComicImpact.com in April and in June was selected as Critiques4Geeks.com’s first ever Geek Babe of the Month.[15]

Tate has become a contributing writer for the websites WorldOfSuperheroes.com[16] and Geekscape.net.[17]

In 2011, as part of her interest in cosplay and in conjunction with that year's ComicCon convention, Tate launched a costume design contest. The winning entrant won a lunch date with Tanya during Comic-Con.[15]


In 2013 Tate was the cover model for the Turkish version of FHM magazine.[18]

"This is very thrilling. I'm honored to not only be featured in FHM, but to be the issue's cover girl. Needless to say, I'm extremely happy about all of this."

Also that year, she was featured in two documentaries. The first was Deborah Anderson's feature documentary and accompanying art book, Aroused[19] (ISBN 978-0-9893744-0-8), a theater released film profiled the lives of several adult industry performers during the production of Anderson’s photobook of the same name.[20] It was released in cinemas in the US Summer 2013 and internationally in January 2014.[21][22] The second was for the UK Channel 4 broadcast television show Date My Porn Star where a film crew accompanied one of Tate's fans from England to her home in Los Angeles to meet the performer.[20]

Other ventures

Since 2011 she has operated a Cosplay themed website and blog called justalottatanya.com.[23][24]

In 2013, Tate began several partnerships and cooperative ventures. She announced an action figure line, unveiled a co-created comic book character, and syndicated blogs for HollywoodGoneGeek.com and FirstComicsNews.com.[25] In April 2014, Tate's Lady Titan was introduced at that year's WonderCon pop-culture convention in Anaheim, CA.[26]


In 2012, Tate appeared on behalf of the Free Speech Coalition at a press conference for the "No on Government Waste" Committee, which opposed Los Angeles County's Measure B; the mandatory condom and health permit initiative.[27]

With regard to Measure B, Tate was quoted in a San Fernando Valley Business Journal article to the effect that she would want whomever she decided to have sex with "to get tested until I felt comfortable to sleep with them without a condom," adding that AIDS Healthcare Foundation president Michael Weinstein (who the article was about), "should be spending money on treating [AIDS] and educating regular people about how to protect themselves instead of going after a small community that is aware of the risks."[27]

Personal life

Tate has stated that she is bi-curious.[28] She is also a lifelong fan of the Liverpool Football Club.[29]

Tate is a cosplay enthusiast and uses an alter ego by the name of Lady Titan.[30]
