Get To Know These New AVN Hall of Famers!

The performers and directors inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame this year have given fans years of arousal, entertainment and complete sexual joy. 

Alexis Amore

Peruvian-American porn superstar Alexis Amore (shown above in New Sensations' "Classic Big Boob Stars") was an active porn performer and director for 14 years. Her career began in 1999 and in 2003, she became a contract star with now defunct production company Jill Kelly Production. She went on to do later exclusive performing agreements with Anabolic Video and Video Team. She was and still is massively popular and famous as a performer throughout Latin America. She still has toys available from her California Exotic Novelties toy line, she is a former Vivid Radio host and she feature dances all over the United States.

Eva Angelina

Eva Angelina (Shown above in Reality Junkies/Mile High Media's "Family Reunions") became a porn performer at the age of 18 in 2003 and has appeared in a ton of top productions for all of the big companies, often wearing her trademark glasses while doing filthy, quality hardcore. Check out her AVN Award winning scenes in Adam & Eve's "Deviance" and Elegant Angel's "Car Wash Girls" along with her excellent Jonni Darkko star showcase "E For Eva".

William H.

William H. (occasionally known as William H. Nutsack) is simply one of porn's best-ever gonzo shooters. He began his career working alongside fellow acclaimed director Mason at Elegant Angel during a golden production period for that company. When Elegant Angel restructured, he went on to make porn for other companies including Jules Jordan Video, Hard X and New Sensations. If you have been watching porn over the last ten years, H.'s movies most likely have been on your radar. I recommend checking out his "Prison Girls" and all of his "Flower's Squirt Shower" series for Elegant Angel.

Brandon Iron

Brandon Iron was a hardworking male porn star who was cast in a ton of movies starting with his very first scene in 1991. He went on to direct and produce while continuing to perform for companies like Extreme Associates, Devil’s Film, Premiere Pictures, Platinum X/Red Light District and JM Productions. He currently lives in Europe and produces videos that he releases through his clip store.

Jessica Jaymes

Busty beauty Jessica Jaymes started in porn in 2001 and became Hustler Video's first-ever contract star in 2003. She is still a very active performer who works a ton for Brazzers where she does what I think are her very best scenes and she was a founding force behind the Spizoo production company.

Sunny Leone

Current Bollywood star and former Vivid Girl Sunny Leone is one of the most famous porn stars in the entire world and there is just no debating that fact at all. In 2003, Penthouse Pet Leone because a Vivid GIrl after making her adult debut in 2001. She was a hugely popular performer, even though she only made less than 70 movies during her porn career. She made her boy/girl debut in 2007's "Sunny Loves Matt" and following her porn career, she did and continues to do a ton of mainstream acting work in India's huge film industry.

Nick Orleans

Director Nick Orleans has been an adult director since 1993, starting his career with now long gone studio VCA. (Man, I miss them.) He has primarily worked for Adam & Eve over the years, making a ton of very loved movies for them including their very popular "The Perfect Secretary" series.

Kirsten Price

Starting in porn in 2004, Kirsten Price (shown above in the Wicked feature "Roommates") made her mark on porn primarily through her work as a Wicked Pictures contract star. She was an AVN Best New Starlet nominee and won AVN Awards for her performances in Wicked features "Manhunters", "FUCK" and "2040". She is currently a mom who is married to performer Keiran Lee and she still stays available to her fans through social media.

Mike Ranger

Golden Age performer Mike Ranger starred in all-time porn classic/epic best-seller "Taboo" where he played star Kay Parker's son. He made a ton of other movies and was often paired with his real life partner Loni Sanders

David Stanley

Director David Stanley is quite honestly one of the best writers that porn has ever had in its ranks, bar none. His mostly autobiographical porn movie "Pretty Girl" is absolutely one of the porn movies I have ever seen and it won three AVN Awards for the man back when it came out in 2004. He directed a ton of great features for Vivid including "Morning Star" and "Black Room". He later directed for Elegant Angel, Wicked and Girlfriends and he is truly a features director that every porn fan who loves their movies with plots should be well-acquainted with.

Celeste Star

Girl/girl only performer Celeste Star has been working non-stop as a porn star for over 13 years which is pretty damn impressive, never mind the fact that she has quite the fan base. A Penthouse Pet, she won an award for her super group scene in Girlsway's "AI: Artificial Intelligence". She is a perennial nominee for All-Girl Performer of the Year and is known for being professional and generally awesome to work with and be around.

Aiden Starr

Fem dom supreme Aiden Starr is a stellar performer, director, producer and she has been starring primarily in girl/girl and fetish scenes since 2002. She currently produces and directs her own best-selling movies for Evil Angel, after starting off in production on Severe Sex's sets. She is a perverted wonder who does exactly the kind of scenes she would do in her private sex life and her movies are always worth every bit of fans' time and money.

Devlin Weed

Male performer/director Devlin Weed made his way into the industry courtesy of a friendship with gangster rap founder Eazy-E who introduced him to porn legend Ron Hightower. Weed has literally worked for almost everyone who shoots porn with black men in it and he has worked non-stop in porn since 1994, currently working as an editor. He was absolutely well-loved by the women he did scenes with for being gentle and respectful in every situation where that care was needed.

Angela White

Australian porn superstar Angela White is a feminist, a true beauty inside and out and has been making her mark on the world's porn consumption since 2003. She was Score's first Australian model and she produces and stars in her truly beautiful, award winning productions for her company AGW in addition to now working for all of the other porn producers out there, such as her most recent appearance in Darkko Productions/Evil Angel's "POV Juggfuckers 7" as shown above. She is absolutely the biggest porn star to ever come from the land Down Under and we are lucky that she shares her gifts with us all.

Michael Zen

The late director Michael Zen directed a ton of both gay and straight porn movies in his career that began with a single title shot in 1976. He is definitely best known for the Jenna Jameson-starring the 1995 Wicked classic "Blue Movie" but he shot high quality features for a ton of studios including Vivid, New Sensations, Metro and just about everyone else who was making plot-based movies back then. "Blue Movie" is a movie that every feature fan should own and it shows the man's true genius through every bit of it.
