America's Porn Paradise!

Jenna Haze, Aurora Snow, Dani Daniels and more of the 20 greatest adult film actors and actresses in OC history

America's Porn Paradise!

The Orange County Business Journal has its Book of Lists, an annual compendium of the county's highest-grossing businesses and individuals. OC Metro publishes its Hot 25, a yearly edition devoted to all sorts of captains of industry, and includes a "CEO Centerfold" in each of its issues. Orange Coast devotes one cover story per year to the county's top doctors and prints a special advertising section highlighting the best lawyers in town. The Orange County Register recently brought back a standalone business section, the better to heap praise on millionaires and billionaires. Entrepreneurs are gods in Orange County, and the more money they make, the louder the county's media and high society applaud.

Food, action sports, high-tech, medicine, banking, developer, gaming, religion—the nation marvels at how Orange County is a nexus for many industries. But there is one that our chroniclers of capitalism never cover, yet probably all of them—as well as the people they profile—lap up as though an entrée at Bistango: porn. Along with the San Fernando Valley, Orange County is one of America's epicenters of the multibillion-dollar industry, an area that has produced stars for decades, that continues to lure actors and actresses for shoots or to settle for a bit of the good life. But you'll never see their full stories in polite publications, perhaps because it's easier to detail how people made their fortunes in construction and spreadsheets instead of explaining the finer points of an anal double-penetration while sucking off a 12-inch schlong and beating off two other schlubs.

To dismiss OC's porn culture as our seamy underside, as a somehow-illegitimate trade, is to ignore sharp businesswomen (and a couple of men) who learned how to turn their curves (and cocks) into lucrative franchises, with business strategies straight out of the halls of Chapman University or UC Irvine (which, incidentally enough, have former students on this list—betcha they're not getting shout-outs in the alumni newsletter). Behold, then, our list of the 20 greatest entreporneurs (yes, Rick Reiff, that's a word!) in Orange County history. All of them have intimate ties—most of those included are natives or current residents, with the rest spending formative years here before moving elsewhere. But all deserve their names etched alongside the Brens and Samuelis and Knotts of the land as examples of Orange County capitalism at its finest—and we're not just talking about the T&A.

SLIDESHOW: 20 Greatest Adult Film Stars in OC History

[20] CARMELLA BING
The multiracial babe made her mark in the middle part of the past decade by starring in many films for Brazzers, an Internet-only production company beloved for its big women and hilarious plots. In one memorable scene, Bing and fellow curvy gal Gianna Michaels played repo officers who gave an ultimatum to a man whose home they were going to foreclose: screw them at the same time, or lose his house. It's a Great Recession scenario that more than a few people in Orange County would love to encounter, and one Bing played with parodic and pervy aplomb. Fans loved her dramatic curves so much that she became one of the few mainstream stars to gain weight to the delight of her fans. Bing nowadays, though, is skinny—and not for the right reasons; late last year, Irvine police cited the 31-year-old for drug-paraphernalia possession after they found her riding in a car stolen by men suspected of being in an identity-theft ring. Here's to hoping Bing goes back to only pulling poles soon. Selected filmography: Big Tits Like Big Dicks 1, Enter the Facesitter, Tittanic.

 

[19] JILLIAN FOXXX
An up-and-cummer Foxxx isn't—and she's proud of it. The former accountant and mother of three adult sons filmed her first sex video in 2003 when she was in her mid-40s, quickly establishing herself in the fast-growing MILF (Mother I'd Like to Fuck) genre. A decade later, she's essentially creating the GILF (Granny I'd Love to Fuck) genre with every young buck she rides, every nympho she seduces, every gangbang she tries. Foxxx also created a stir among Register readers in 2010 when she was briefly profiled as part of OC's swinger community, as the sight of someone of advanced age freely admitting she loved sex and practiced it vigorously distracted said readers from their usual anti-Mexican hate fest. Selected filmography: Granny Cocksuckers 1, MILF Does a Brotha Good, Big Boob Nifty Fifties 2.

 

[18] DEVINN LANE
Born in Newport Beach, Lane started in the industry at the relatively ripe age of 27 at a time when the MILF film was still a cult classic instead of the mainstream pleasure it is today. Not a conventional beach-cities beauty—natural breasts, brunette, a pleasantly curvy body more housewife than Housewives—Lane made up for her late start by quickly transitioning into the director's chair with her series The Devinn Lane Show and Road Trixxx before moving on to work with production company Shane's World. Last filming in 2007, Lane has nevertheless kept her profile prominent with lectures on sexuality at Yale and fund-raising for AIDS patients in Los Angeles. Selected filmography: White Panty Chronicles 9, Fluffy Cumsalot: Porn Star, Devinn Lane's Guide to Strap-On Sex.

I cannot believe you did not mention Huntington Beach's greatest contribution to porn Cara Lott! She is in the porn star hall of fame, started in the early 80's and blazed the trail for all the others you mentioned. In addition she worked with John Holmes, Marilyn Chambers and Ron Jeremy to name a few. She is truly a legend of porn, still looks fabulous and still lives in Orange County. She deserves an article dedicated to just her, I assure you she is a fascinating lady who is extremely articulate and has some incredible stories about the porn business when it really became mainstream with the invention of the video tape! Shame on you for not including her here.
