America's Porn Paradise!

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

 

[5] TASHA REIGN
Our cover girl is probably the only person on this list to start as a mainstream star, then get into the world of porn. She was one of the cast members of the 2006 season of Laguna Beach: The Real O.C. before branching out into adult films four years later, around the same time she transferred to UCLA (she's on track to earn a bachelor's degree in women's studies and plans to get a master's in psychology). In three short years, Reign has become a sex-world sensation, with a "Girls of the Pac-10" feature in Playboy; starring roles in more than 50 films for all the major, modern-day houses (Vivid, Brazzers, Wicked); and earning Penthouse Pet of the Month honors for 2011. More impressive, however, is her business acumen: At 24, Reign produces, directs and even writes most of her newer films and maintains an active website for those who can't get enough of her beach-bunny looks. Selected filmography: I Have a Wife 15; Fuck Me and My BFF 5; What the Fuck! Big Tits, Bitches & Ass!


[4] JENNA JAMESON
The "Queen of Porn" and longtime Huntington Harbour resident got her start the same as many other young women: stripping, then modeling softcore for magazines such as Penthouse. At the time, she had an innocent-teen look—slender-waisted and small but curvy, with a "Heartbreaker" tattoo on her right buttock even then. What separated Jameson from the other girls in the industry, though, was an insatiable ambition to be the biggest name in porn history. She is the only actress in AVN Awards history to win Best New Starlet, Best Actress and Best Couples Sex Scene in the same year (1996), as well as as being one of the highest-paid actresses in porn. But Jameson's genius is in the vertical integration of her brand: With the launch of ClubJenna.com in 2000, she become her own actress, producer, director and boss, a pioneering move that every adult actor and actress has followed since. Lucky timing helped drive Jameson's career—the Internet boom fueled her fame and filled her coffers when porn distribution was no longer limited to seedy adult bookstores. (Speaking of bookstores, her How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale just might be the only New York Times best-seller written by a porn star and co-written with a Times writer we'll ever see.) More than any other female star, Jameson's enduring legacy is her mainstreaming of hardcore porn, making it not a shameful, renegade thrill, but a long-term career move that could generate a fortune. Selected filmography: Saturday Night Beaver, Jenna From All Angles, Screwed and Tattoo'd.


[3] PETER NORTH
The 56-year-old is one of porn's most legendary marathon men, with an Energizer fuck-bunny career that dates back to 1984 and has spanned everyone from Nina Hartley to many of the gals on this list. Eons before the word "manscaping" was coined, the perfectly coiffed, Nair-chested North looked like a matinee idol at a time when other dudes resembled fur-covered tripods. Starting as "Matt Ramsey" in gay porn, the Canadian came to the straight side and fast established himself as porn's master of the massive money shot because of his preternatural ability to deposit sperm, earning the nickname "Four Quart" North. His ability to make it rain has led to a lucrative career as a director and producer (most famously in his North Pole, Deep Throat This and Anal Addicts series) for his Northpole Enterprises, which has earned him a nice home in Newport Coast. And when he's not using his spigot for the cameras, North is busy collecting cars, frequently appearing in auto mags and even on Adam Carolla's CarCast podcast, showing off his Ferraris and expertly dissecting motors the same way he handles actresses. Because of all this, North is one of the few male porn actors whom straight men will admit to admiring and respecting. Selected filmography: Ass Ventura: Crack Detective, Fresh Tits of Bel Air, Hannah Does Her Sisters.

 

[2] JENNA HAZE
The former Marie Callender's waitress began working in adult films in 2000 after some casual stripping and took the industry by storm, winning the 2003 AVN Awards for Best New Starlet and Best Solo Sex Scene. Her torrid scenes with both men and women made Haze a fan and industry favorite for years, as she became the Hank Aaron of the porn world, improving with every year. She won AVN's 2009 award for Female Performer of the Year and the 2011 honor for fan favorite, the same year she won for Best All-Sex Release, Best All-Girl Release and Best Young Release as a producer, actress and director for Cum-Spoiled Brats under her Jennaration X production company. Haze summarily announced her retirement from acting in February 2012, shortly after being inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame, deciding to concentrate on her production and directing empire. Her PG-rated Instagram account boasts more than 36,000 followers and beams images of her travels around the world. It's wonderful to think that for every North County resident who came of age in the 1990s and knows that the shy, quiet girl who was their classmate in local junior-high and high schools around Fullerton and La Habra is now a sexvid goddess, there are dozens who haven't a clue. Selected filmography: Anal Academics, Please Cum Inside Me 7, Meet the Fuckers 8.

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.
