I was introduced to Sarah Courtney through my collaboration with Rendezvous Magazine. I was in my Uber on the way to Leo Carrillo State Park, and when we finally got there, I noticed an open field that I just HAD to shoot in. We met in the parking lot of the state park and walked under a tunnel to get to the beach. Needless to say, we captured some real magic, and I'm excited to share it with you guys! I hope you enjoy:
OTC: What’s your name?
SC: Sarah Courtney
OTC: How old are you?
SC: I'm 22 years old
OTC: How long have you been modeling?
SC: I've been modeling for a bit over four years now
OTC: What inspires you?
SC: One of my biggest inspirations is looking back on the past and seeing change. To a lot of people change can be a scary thing but I view it as progress, milestones on the way to reaching a goal. When I can reflect on my past and see a difference, whether something turned out as planned or otherwise, it inspires me to push forward and to keep striving for more change and improvement.
OTC: What’s your opinion on Instagram forcing women to censor their nipples?
SC: I think Instagram needs to lighten up on the censoring. The human body is a beautiful thing, it's a piece of art unique to every individual. No one should have to censor or cover up a any portion of it. There are so many talented artists portraying that in the most tasteful manner nowadays. I believe we have outgrown censorship.
OTC: What physical qualities do you look for in a man?
SC: The best qualities in a man are a good sense of humor and enlightened mind. If you can make me laugh and then have an intellectual conversation with me, I'm a happy girl.
OTC: What defines a “sexy man” according to you?
SC: A "sexy" man to me is someone who doesn't lack confidence. Sure of themselves but not cocky, it's a tricky little fine line to find!
OTC: Have you ever used a dating app? If so, which ones?
SC: Have never used a dating app of any kind. Actually kind of proud of that! It seems to be the norm today to just swipe left or right.
OTC: Do you like cuddling when you lie in bed?
SC: I do like cuddling. However (lol) when the time comes that I actually fall asleep I don't like to be cuddled, it gets way too hot for me!
OTC: What do you think you look sexiest in?
SC: I like to keep things simple. I think I look sexiest in a tank top and jeans, hair up in a bun. Comfort over everything!
OTC: Describe the sexiest clothes you ever wore and why
SC: I made a pretty damn sexy Hooters girl for Halloween a few years ago. Classiest outfit? No. But sexy? Heck yes.
OTC: What do you wear to bed?
SC: Usually a big t-shirt, undies and fuzzy socks. My feet always get cold, can't forget the fuzzy socks.
OTC: Do you like boxers or briefs?
SC: Definitely briefs.
OTC: What’s your secret move to turn a guy on?
SC: I like to nibble on the ear a little, from past experience it seems to do the trick.
OTC: Have you ever been in a friends with benefits situation?
SC: Never been in a friends with benefits situation. I just don't think the two mix well with one another! Too many complications.
OTC: Have you ever had two boyfriends at the same time?
SC: Never had two boyfriends at the same time.
OTC: Have you ever made out with someone that you wished you never made out with?
SC: HA! Haven't we all?
OTC: Have you ever kissed a girl before?
SC: I have kissed a girl before. She didn't have cherry chapstick so maybe that's why I didn't like it.
OTC: Do you like talking dirty?
SC: Honestly I can't say I like talking dirty or being talked dirty to. I'm a fairly goofy person as is, don't need anything happening in the bedroom that could spark my laughter.
OTC: Tell me about your first kiss
SC: My first kiss was in eighth grade at one of my best friends "parties." We were all watching a scary movie and ended up not watching much of the scary movie at all.
OTC: Do you think you’re a good kisser?
SC: I would like to think I'm a good kisser! Haven't been told otherwise yet… Let's hope it stays that way.
OTC: Describe the perfect kiss
SC: Perfect kiss, hmmmm, I'll let you know once it happens.
OTC: What’s the boldest thing you’ve done over texting?
SC: I have never really done anything bold over text. Sent my high-school boyfriend some pictures once upon a time but those have drifted off somewhere, thankfully, along with my awkward years.
OTC: Where’s the sexiest place for someone to kiss you?
SC: I like to be kissed on the neck. Then down from there.
OTC: Ever had a one night stand?
SC: Never had a one night stand.
OTC: Have you ever been skinny dipping?
SC: Love skinny dipping! Nothing more freeing than that.
OTC: Have you ever gone a full day without wearing underwear?
SC: I have definitely gone a full day without underwear. Some clothes just don't work any other way!
OTC: Do you like it when men are aggressive and rough, or gentle?
SC: A happy medium would be great. I like to get a little rough now and then, but gentle is always agreeable too.
OTC: Have you ever been in a sex shop?
SC: Never been in a sex shop. Somewhat intrigued to go in one just to poke around.
OTC: Have you ever had/given a lap dance?
SC: I gave the closest thing I ever will to a lap dance in high school on a party bus before a homecoming dance. We've all been there before!
OTC: Has someone ever told you they loved you and you didn’t love them back?
SC: I've never been in that situation and hope I never have to be!
OTC: Have you ever felt stupid on a date?
SC: Every first date I've ever been on (LOL).
OTC: Where is your favorite place to go on a date?
SC: The beach.
OTC: Where can someone find you on the weekend?
SC: Outside. Whether it's by the ocean, or up in the mountains, I make it my mission to be outdoors as much as possible every weekend.
OTC: Where is the best place to try to pick you up?
SC: I'm not really exclusive about that, I love meeting new people everywhere. Guess it never hurts if you can buy me a drink though.
OTC: Where is the worst?
SC: Even though I said I'm not exclusive about it… The gym is not the place to pick me up. I go there to sweat and cry my way through my workouts, don't need confirmation that someone was watching me do it!
