The Most Popular Porn Stars

Popularity in the porn industry is often fleeting. Some performers experience a meteoric rise and fall in the course of a year. Others connect with the audience on a different level and manage a multi-year ride at the top.   Though there is no real formula for success in this industry, these 12 performers have proven to be more than just a flash in the pan, with tremendous staying power over the past few

Popularity in the porn industry is often fleeting. Some performers experience a meteoric rise and fall in the course of a year. Others connect with the audience on a different level and manage a multi-year ride at the top.  Though there is no real formula for success in this industry, these 12 performers have proven to be more than just a flash in the pan, with tremendous staying power over the past few years. What’s more there are no signs their careers are in danger of waning anytime soon.

So, with the industry’s annual expo underway in Las Vegas Jan. 6-9, we’ve assembled porn’s dirty dozen—the most popular porn stars, based on our reporting and analysis.   By Chris Morris, Special to

Ashlynn Brooke

Brooke has been working in adult films for nearly five years, earning multiple award nominations. She also appeared in last year’s “Piranha 3D,” which has helped escalate her earlier porn films.   These days, however, she’s focusing more on work behind the camera, directing parody-film versions of “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Wonder Woman”.

Jenna Haze

The 28-year-old Haze is arguably the most popular performer in the porn today. She has been nominated for the “Female Performer of the Year” award for three years running at the AVN Awards (porn’s equivalent of the Oscars).   Haze also picked up a similar nomination at the 2009 Xbiz Awards. Meanwhile, she is one of the most popular stars with members of the Adult Entertainment Broadcast Network (AEBN) – the industry’s largest Internet video on demand provider.

Jesse Jane

Jane is, for many, the face of modern porn. She was one of the top-line stars of the smash “Pirates” films (two of the biggest porn movies of all time).   Jane is also hosting this year’s AVN red-carpet ceremony and received performer of the year nods in 2009 and 2010. She’s nominated for the same category in this year’s Xbiz Awards, which she will also host.

Lisa Ann

The 38-year-old Lisa Ann had a run in the 1990s as a porn actress, but quit in 1997, eventually returning as an agent. In 2008, though, her meteoric rise to fame came when she portrayed Sarah Palin in a porn parody. She has since gone on to be one of the most popular on-demand stars with AEBN.

Evan Stone

Ron Jeremy is the industry’s most famous male performer, but 46-year old Stone could be his successor. His sense of humor makes him one of the most popular leading men in the industry among female performers – and fans enjoy a male actor who doesn’t take himself too seriously.

Tori Black

A three-year veteran of the industry with more than 200 films under her belt, Black began as a Penthouse Pet. She won 2010’s AVN performer of the year award and is nominated again in 2011. The story’s the same with the Xbiz Awards. And, like Haze, Black is one of the top stars at AEBN. Among her highlights in 2010 was a spin as Catwoman in Vivid’s incredibly popular “Batman XXX: A Porn Parody”.

Bobbi Starr

A finalist in “America’s Next Hot Porn Star,” Starr failed to win the 2007 pay-per-view reality show, but that hasn’t slowed her rise. She has racked up more than half a dozen awards and may be the industry’s next crossover star, having been cast in the upcoming film “Drive” with Ryan Gosling, Albert Brooks and Christina Hendricks.

Lexi Belle

One of the younger superstars of the industry at 23, Belle has earned top-performer nods for two years running from AVN and Xbiz. She is, perhaps, even more popular with the Web audience, which has made her website one of the biggest in the industry.

Kayden Kross

Kross has been a contract star with both of the production firms Adam & Eve and Digital Playground, making her one of today’s most in demand stars. She will cohost this year’s AVN red carpet with Jesse Jane and is nominated for best performer for the second consecutive year.


While Belladonna appears to be stepping back from performing in porn films, this 29-year old actor/director/producer has one of the most loyal fan bases in the industry. Both straight men and lesbian women have kept Belladonna among the most popular stars – even when she shaved her head. She has been nominated for 42 AVN awards (and won 10) through the course of her career.

Sasha Grey

Grey’s not actively making porn films at the moment, but her push into mainstream acting – including a lead role in Steven Soderbergh’s 2008 film “The Girlfriend Experience”, and a recurring role on HBO’s “Entourage” – has kept her porn works popular. Several companies are also putting out compilation titles with select scenes of her uninhibited past, which fans continue to buy.

Joanna Angel

Like Belladonna, Angel owns her studio – meaning she makes money from sales, not just performances. The punk look she and her actors share has given rise to a new segment in the industry, dubbed alt porn.

Sexy New Cast Members Give Not the Bradys XXX Pussy Power!


(Hollywood, CA) America’s favorite porn family is set to return with a third volume of the popular Brady Bunch sex parodies as Not the Bradys XXX Pussy Power! will be in stores everywhere November 24th from X-Play/LFP Video as producers Scott David & Jeff Mullen are ready to unveil a new look.

Lexi Belle and Dylan Riley have joined the family playing sisters Marcia and Jan and immediately brought a young-girl look and teenage enthusiasm to the most wholesome family in the country.

“Anytime you make changes to something that is ultra-successful you have to be really careful but both of these girls were born for this movie,” stated the movie’s writer and co-producer Jeff Mullen.

A PG-rated trailer is now available on YouTube

“When I got the call to audition for Marcia I was so excited,” Lexi Belle said. “I mean there really isn’t any series bigger in adult movies than Not the Bradys XXX and I told my agent I wanted this role badly and I was lucky enough to get it.”

“Lexi was the perfect choice because she’s super cute and has that young Marcia appeal,” stated co-producer Scott David of and X-Play.

X-Play was pushed into making a number of casting changes when Teagan Presley who previously played Marcia opted to perform only with girls.

“We really love Teagan and she was great in Not the Bradys XXX Marcia Marcia Marcia but we really needed Marcia to get banged by guys so we made the switch,” Mullen said.

Once that decision was made it was imperative that middle sister Jan remained younger than Marcia so a new Jan was brought in. Dylan Riley a newcomer to the adult industry auditioned and won the job.

“Wow, replacing Aurora Snow as Jan was not easy because she’s such a big star but I was thrilled to get the part,” Riley said from her home in Las Vegas.

In this whacky new movie Jan yearns to be popular just like her big sis Marcia. Jan’s sex-crazed classmate Monica shows her other ways to get good grades and become popular with the boys by using the power of her private parts but all hell breaks loose when Carol & Mike try to control their daughters as hardcore sex is everywhere in this wild & hilarious spoof of the 70s classic TV show.

“I end up getting straight As so you do the math,” Riley joked when asked what exactly Jan learns to do in the movie.

Directed by the award-winning Will Ryder who just received a Lifetime Achievement Award from NightMoves, Not the Bradys XXX Pussy Power! is filled with innocent fun that gets totally out of hand.

The movie is packed with super sexy young girls giving it an adventurous teen-vibe just like the original TV series. Rounding out the new cast members are Nicole Ray, Ashlyn Rae and the much-talked-about sex kitten Tanner Mayes. Eric John plays the perverted school teacher giving an entirely new meaning to the word homework and Seth Gamble plays Ridgedale’s all-state quarterback. The rest of the stellar ensemble cast returns for this new episode including Alana Evans, Kacey Jordan, Lynn LeMay, Mike Horner, Kris Slater, James Deen, Mickey Butders and Ron Jeremy as Sam the Butcher.

“There is not a more wholesome porn series anywhere but you have to see the sex in this new movie because it’s what you missed on TV,” Ryder joked.
