Personal Journey

Seska Trivia

I have a BA in Child Studies and a BA in Psychology. In my twenties I worked as an educational consultant. I have continued my education by taking courses in nutrition, energy healing, mindfulness and online business.

I have been active as a burlesque performer and cabaret producer since 2003.

After recovering from a rare autoimmune disease called Paroxysmal Cold Hemoglobinuria I was inspired to train for a 1/2 marathon. I ran it in 2 hours and 14 minutes in the freezing rain. After a break from exercise I have switched things up and now take daily early morning 40 minute power walks.

In the fall of 2014  I made my professional theatrical debut in the Segal Centre’s The Graduate.

I’m a former adult industry performer and I wrote an essay on why I do not hide or deny my past here. I have spoken about my personal and professional experiences at SXSW, Concordia University, McGill University, Sexual Attitude Reassessment Seminars and various adult industry conferences.

Yes, that was me on HBO’s Real Sex Xtra : Pornocopia : Going Down in the Valley : Women on Top. The business has changed dramatically from when that was filmed (2004). I cannot provide you with any relevant advice on how to “make it’ in the industry in its current state. It’s changed too much.

I have two cats – Rufus and Martha.

    2 hours 14 minutes, while not rocket-fast, isn’t a bad time for a half marathon. And it was your first, so there’s that.

      This is true! Though I am not running nearly as fast these days. My best is 5k in 38 minutes. But I suffered a back injury late last summer and my recuperation took some time. I am running again and really enjoying it.

        Best wishes that you continue to enjoy it. Returning from injury can be tough. But if you listen to your body–and don’t hold yourself to some arbitrary timetable–things should work out.

    Congratulations on your half marathon! I have been a huge Seska & Carol C fan for a long time. I always enjoyed watching you “play” back in those days. Hopefully you were truly enjoyed that time exploring your sexuality. You’ve always been a beautiful woman with a refreshing sense of simplicity (at least from where I was sitting;) ). I wish you the best and will continue to enjoy reading your blog.
