There is no clear formula to success especially in the adult entertainment industry, but these ten adult performers have shown that it can be done.
Adult Entertainment’s Ten Notably Popular Stars
A few adult entertainers have encountered a fleeting ascent and fall in popularity over the span of a year. Meanwhile, others have gathered enough audience to keep them afloat for many years. Unpredictable as it may seem, but achieving notoriety in the porn business is a tough thing to achieve.
In spite of this fact, there is truly no genuine recipe for success in the sex industry, just trade secrets.
But these 10 entertainers have proven to be more than just a flash in the pan. Their resilience through the years and their huge fan following have proven that there is no stopping them.
1. Ashlynn Brooke
Even though it has been just about a decade since she joined the business, this woman has proven that she is a force to reckon with. Winning multiple accolades and recognition, and starring in the movie, “Piranha 3D” has helped propel her to stardom. These days, however, she has her eyes set towards directing naughty parodies of mainstream films, such as Wonder Woman and Little Red Riding Hood.
2. Jenna Haze
This 34-year old beauty has been rocking the AVN Awards (that is porn’s answer to the Oscars) after she was nominated for “Female Performer of the Year” for three consecutive years. Currently, she is one of the most sought-after stars of the Adult Entertainment Broadcast Network (AEBN) – the largest internet video-on-demand provider of the porn industry.
3. Lisa Ann
She has been around since the 1990s and remains as one of the best adult performers around. Ranked number one in popular porn sites, such as PornHub, she has achieved fame after starring as Sarah Palin in a parody in 2008.
4. Evan Stone
Dabbed as Ron Jeremy’s successor, his sense of humour and gorgeous golden mane have made this man almost every lady’s favourite. The 52-year-old adult film star has performed in approximately 1,821 films and directed eight in his entire career as of the moment.
5. Tori Black
Winning as AVN’s performer of the year for two consecutive years (2010 and 2011) has cemented her status as one of the industry’s in-demand entertainers. Within just a few years into her career as an adult entertainer, she starred in more than 200 films starting with the Penthouse Pet.
6. Bobbi Starr
Known as one of the contestants in “America’s Next Hot Porn Star”, she has accumulated a huge following even after failing to win in that pay-per-view reality competition. On the other hand, she is set to be the next crossover artist after being cast in the mainstream film “Drive” alongside Ryan Gosling, Christina Hendricks, and Albert Brooks.
7. Lexi Belle
Probably the youngest on this list, she has received recognition as one of the top-performers in two of porn’s largest award giving bodies, AVN and Xbiz. She made her crossover to mainstream film after starring as Hera in the 2015 action flick, Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance with co-stars Kayden Kross and Tommy Wiseau.
8. Sasha Grey
Even though she has been in hiatus with performing in adult films, Sasha Grey remained visible to her fans as she took the lead role in Steven Soderbergh’s “The Girlfriend Experience” in 2008. She also appeared as a recurring character on HBO’s series, “Entourage”.
9. Rocco Siffredi
The Italian Stallion, as many called him, has been in the adult industry for more than 3 decades after meeting Gabriel Pontello, a porn actor, in a French strip club in the 80’s. He starred in more than 1,300 pornographic films beginning with Attention Fillettes in 1987. Currently, he works as a producer and director of adult films and has amassed a fortune, making him one of the richest in the adult entertainment.
10. John Holmes
Also known as John Wadd in some of his films, he is one of the most prolific male adult performers of all time. Appearing in almost 2,934 films, he achieved notoriety during the Golden Age of Porn in the 70s and 80s. His life as a porn star and his death had made him the subject of numerous books, an essay in the Rolling Stone magazine, and two feature-length documentaries, and the inspiration of two mainstream films: Wonderland (2003) and Boogie Nights (1997).
As adult entertainers, these people have managed to stand out from the crowd. Popularity may wane but legacies will surely remain, and these men and women have left an indelible mark in the porn industry.
