Nina Hartley 5Nina Hartley 20Nina Hartley 22

7 Nina Hartley: Nina, like so many amazing minds in this panel, danced and mastered the art of performance while attending nursing school. It was a desire for erotic publications and an open mind in her college years that brought her into this amazing industry. Nina is also a fluent guest speaker and lecturer at many colleges, focusing on issue like sexual acceptance and personal growth from a gender and feminist view that was built years ago. Nina is simply an example of pure genius in this industry.

Brigitte LahaieBrigitte Lahaie 2Brigitte Lahaie 3

8. Brigitte Lahaie: This French beauty began her career one year after porn was legal in France. Talk about a woman who pressed the envelope. This XRCO hall of famer, hosts her own talk show and has delved deep into “mainstream” entertainment in so many ways. Brigette makes this list because she is one of the first women of intellect to use her prowess to super stardom in this industry. She opened the door for so many and it is on honor to feature her on this list

Katie Morgan 1Katie Morgan 2Katie Morgan 3

 

9. Katie Morgan: Katie has indeed used her business sense to grow her image into one of the most recognized on the planet. Katie has been in many lines of work but what the lady of genius IQ level could tell most of us, it is that it is her brains not just her beauty that made her dreams come true. Katie has not only achieved a place in the halls of higher learning, she has also seen many things most in the world have not, in the “school of hard knocks.” Because as anyone on this list will tell you, it is about your hands on experiences in life that matters most and some things require a sharp skilled mind more so that physical strength to overcome and Katie indeed a person who has seen and done it all.

This beauty from “Down Under” has a degree in Gender Studies, hell I should not just say graduated but graduated with first class honors. Angela has built an empire with her amazing company and as she moves shop to the US. I can only imagine what this amazing woman has in store for the future. Angela is my kind of student, a woman who puts work ahead of everything, something that only the most gifted of minds does in this world.

Evan StoneEvan Stone 2Evan Stone 4

11. Evan Stone: There is very little Evan has not done in this world as far as work goes. He has worked on a golf coarse, a few actually, driven forklifts, done small jobs, big jobs, you name it. The king of “Skin-a-Max” is what I call Evan. Evan developed a passion for writing in his college days, which shows a mastery of his acting abilities. Evan Stone is one of the biggest names and biggest brains in this industry. Just as every other big brain here. To me Evan Stone is porn’s Hemingway. He pursued his medical passion a few times and was an EMT. Little did we know Evan would be the guy giving the ladies heart attacks from excitement years later.

Asia Carrera 4Asia Carrera 3Asia Carrera 6

12. Asia Carrera: A woman who needs no introduction in this industry. This shy, beautiful, charismatic woman in front of the camera is a member of MENSA and is one of the only people I have ever met that has played at Carnegie Hall. She did that before she was even 18. Asia has this deep rooted sophistication that has shown in all she does. One of the most intelligent women on the planet Asia has always used that beautiful mind of hers to always find a way, even in retirement from performing. Her mainstream roles are amazing and you will be anything but not blown away, when you learn she taught English in Japan when she was just 16.

Katja Kassin 1Katja Kassin 2Katja Kassin 3

13. Katja Kassin: Katja is indeed my favorite reader, as like almost every other performer on this list, she is conquering her higher education while shooting the scenes that make fans fantasies come to life. This native German beauty came to the states and indeed conquered the adult market, being featured with massive companies like Wicked Pictures from day one. She is studying psychology at the moment and is a woman always looking to further herself. Katja Kassin will be the first to tell you the value of knowledge and learning in this industry and in life.

Mercedes Ashely 2Mercedes Ashely 3Mercedes Ashely 4

14: Mercedes Ashley: This beauty has had a place on this list in my mind for years and years. Her dedication to her schooling is simply amazing. Mercedes shaped her career in IT, or should I say, helped fund it by being one of the most provocative performers I have ever seen on film. Her applied passion shows in all she does and this native beauty of Puerto Rico can build anything you can imagine on the internet. Her skills in the IT department are unmatched by another performer in this industry.

Don Juan DeMarko

I have been in the adult industry since I was indeed a young history major out of college. I attended a "Public Ivy" located in Williamsburg, Virginia. I have a multiple degrees & certificates including one in graphic design that led me to this wonderful and amazing industry. I started as just a lowly consultant for a design firm in Los Angeles that led me to introductions with some amazing people in the adult film industry and the rest is history. I have fulfilled work and helped to write publications for some of the biggest names in music, sports and film but my passion, the place where I truly call "home" because it is where the heart is, lies within the adult entertainment industry. I am an XRCO Member and I always like to say the art of making "fantasy become reality" is indeed something that takes the effort of many people, from all likes & spectrums of this amazing world. It is indeed those people and the fans of this industry that drive me to always show the beautiful amazing side of this industry few know but many dream about.
