Note From Tammy Torres
WOW! Times have changed so many things since this interview!! Big shout out to Bonsu Thompson editor at XXL Magazine. I had so much fun shooting this spread with the wonderful Photographer Diana Scheunemann, who made me come out my shell to get some of the greatest shots ever. Looking back at these photos reminds me of the young Tammy Torres who wasn’t so comfortable about her sexuality or even what to do in the position I was in. Gaining so much notoriety by media, credible magazines, press and also being criticized and attacked at the same time was all so surreal for a small town girl like myself. It all taught me a great since of value and encouragement. Valuing my position to have a voice as a women and my appearance even though I had many insecurities, as we all do. I think embracing our ideas of sexuality and art combined is what gave me the confidence to explore my creativity and feeling secure in my own skin. Its what brings out some of our best work! “Confidence always bleeds through”
“I believe everyone should remind themselves that we all are different and we should embrace that. Its what makes us unique!” Tammy Torres

You only get one chance to make a first impression. So for our 2009 Eye Candy jump-off, XXL brings you sexiness that’s best described as arresting. Lil Wayne concurs, having hired 22-year-old Floridian Tammy Torres to play “Mrs. Officer” in his latest video. The sight of the 5-foot-3-inch Cuban’s T&A squeezed into a police uniform provided folks with the hood version of Beyoncés “If I Were a Boy.” But there’s nothing masculine about Tammy, and one look at this mami’s rubbery flexibility––thanks to Jesus and years of dancing and yoga––and your manhood will be reaffirmed. Winter ’09 just turned even more brick.
Exactly how did you land the lead role in Lil Wayne’s “Mrs. Officer” video?
I was asked by Mr. Carter himself if I’d be interested. Wayne’s a good friend of mine from a few years ago––we live on the same block in South Beach––so he called me back in, like, September and asked. I absolutely loved the song, so I was more than happy to accept his offer.
Your petite, 5-foot-3-inch height must’ve played a part in your landing the lead. But what do you feel is the sexiest part of your body?
Ummm, that’s a good one. I have a few parts I feel are extremely sexy, but my favorite is my thighs. Thickness always helps!
Valentine’s Day is coming up. What is the V-Day fantasy of a hot Latina such as yourself?
All I can think of is rose petals, chocolate-covered strawberries, a hot tub, and that someone, of course.
Man, that was boring. Okay, let’s try to give the Eye Candy faithful something else. You exhibited some pretty impressive flexibility during your photo shoot. What’s the wildest way you’ve been stretched during sex?
[Giggles] Well, I’ve been practicing my yoga, so I definitely got some moves. I can pretty much be folded up to your wildest expectations. So I’m going to say a split, and leave it at that. [Laughs]-Bonsu Thompson
