Top 100 porn stars, or not?

Genesis Online has recently announced their list of the top 100 porn stars of 2009. They state that they come up with the list based of several factors:

We look at a ton of factors in ranking these top stars in the porn world. Whether it’s the amount of a girl’s name recognition, her looks, the heat of her scenes, her accomplishments in and out of hardcore, the number and quality of movies she’s made, or even something as simple as what she does and doesn’t do on camera, all of this gets put into our little system and then we spit out her spot on “Porn’s Hot 100.” It’s not a science by any means, but rather the opinion of our staff and some select industry insiders.

Of course opinion are like assholes, every one has one! We wanted to compare their list to the likes of more scientific data, like the Fame Registry top 100. compiles a list of top rated porn stars and ranks them in order of popularity based on a variety of information. Every porn star is rated on a special point system that is complied by tracking publicly available information such as their Alexa ranking, Google Term Frequency, # of MySpace friends, Overture Keyword Rating, Wordtracker Searches for their first and last name, Estibot Domain name values, the number of times they’ve appeared in magazines like Penthouse, Hustler and Genesis magazine and last but not least the number of awards each porn star has won from AVN, XRCO and FAME.

Genesis top 15 porn stars:

  1. Sasha Grey
  2. Jenna Haze
  3. Jesse Jane
  4. Tera Patrick
  5. Stormy Daniels
  6. Bree Olson
  7. Briana Banks
  8. Belladonna
  9. Joanna Angel
  10. Gianna Michaels
  11. Jessica Drake
  12. Teagan Presley
  13. Sunny Leone
  14. Alexis Texas
  15. Eva Angelina

Fame Registry’s top 15 porn stars:

  1. Jenna Haze (Last Month # 1)
  2. Belladonna (Last Month # 2)
  3. Jesse Jane (Last Month # 3)
  4. Tera Patrick (Last Month # 4)
  5. Mary Carey (Last Month # 5)
  6. Sunny Leone (Last Month # 6)
  7. Briana Banks (Last Month # 7)
  8. Aria Giovanni (Last Month # 8 )
  9. Eva Angelina (Last Month # 9)
  10. Gina Lynn (Last Month # 10)
  11. Brittney Skye (Last Month # 14)
  12. Taylor Rain (Last Month # 11)
  13. Nikki Benz (Last Month # 12)
  14. Jessica Drake (Last Month # 13)
  15. Janine Lindemulder (Last Month # 20)

Genesis put Sasha Gray number one on their list, Fame Registry has her at #28! Janie Lindemulder comes in at #15 on the Fame Registry list, and Taylor Rain is #11, but neither one of them are even included on the Genesis list!  That is a huge difference! Jesse Jane is #3 on both lists as is Tera Patrick’s #4 ranking! Stormy Daniels ranks #5 on the Genesis, but comes in #19 of Fame Registry. Another big difference is Bree Olson, who ranks #6 on the Genesis list, but only #23 on Fame Registry.

I found the comparison of these two lists quite interesting since there were such major differences. I guess the folks at Genesis should consider the over-all popularity of these stars and not just their likes when comprising a top 100 list!


Yar Matey … them there boobies I see over yonder

The exclusive shoot and cover we have with Jesse, Jenna and Sasha is simply incredible, as well as the layout with Riley, and the Blu-ray contest they are sponsoring with us is a great opportunity for any fan.

LOS ANGELES – Erotica LA will host the first annual F.A.M.E. Awards (Fans of Adult Media & Entertainment) at 9 p.m. on Saturday, June 24 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

What separates the F.A.M.E. Awards from various other award shows is that the top stars and movies of the past year in adult will be chosen exclusively by the fans, making this a unique, interactive show.

Adam & (, Genesis magazine (, WantedList ( and have partnered to produce the event.

“While there are numerous other award shows in adult businesses, we wanted to create one where the true critics — the fans — could pick their favorites in the categories that matter most to them,” explained Dan Davis, editor-in-chief of Genesis. “The fans will be the ones pre-nominating the performers and movies, choosing the finalists, and ultimately naming the winners. These are their awards.”

Bob Christian, vice president of Adam & Eve, added, “Adam & Eve is sponsoring these awards in order to give the fans of adult movies and entertainment a real voice to tell the industry what they like best. Other awards use industry insiders to determine winners — F.A.M.E. listens to the real consumers and users of the products.”

Fans above the age of 18 can go to the F.A.M.E. website ( and vote on nominations in the appropriate categories until March 15. The finalists in each category will be announced shortly thereafter based on the pre-nomination results and voting will continue until June 23.

“We always thought that an awards show based on consumer choices was a great idea,” remarked Paul Fishbein, president of AVN. “Obviously the AVN Awards are more for the trade and are picked by the critics. We’re proud to be part of a show that gives the fans a voice, since they’re the ones who ultimately decide which stars and products are popular. And we are especially proud to be in partnership with such fine companies as WantedList, Adam & Eve and Genesis magazine.”

Anh Tran, co-founder of WantedList, agreed.

“We’re really honored to be a part of a project that involves so many great companies,” he said. “For us, this award show is part of our ongoing commitment to bring the adult world closer to the fans.”
