Sexy Southern Porn Stars

Sweet home sexy southern porn stars comfort the soul.

Cut-off jeans, bikini top, bare feet – according to the music duo Maddie and Tae, that’s the stereotypical costume of a “Girl In A Country Song.” Their song is a protest of sorts, but it can’t be denied—since even before Daisy Duke squeezed into her first pair of Daisy Dukes, there’s always been something uniquely sexy about a Southern girl. And this certainly extends to the realm of adult entertainment, although statistically speaking, down-home girls aren’t particularly porn-friendly. California is still the place you ought to be born if you want to end up in porn. Florida has its own mini-industry porn, comes in second—a distant second. Florida does count as a Southern state though because Lynyrd Skynyrd hailed from there, and he did write “Sweet Home Alabama.” 

Desiree Cousteau

Birthplace:
Savannah, Georgia

Career span:
1976-1986

The perky, zaftig 1970s porn pioneer was reportedly raised in a very conservative Baptist family and eventually enrolled in college in Athens, Georgia. “I was going to college and I needed to bring in some money, so I started doing some nude modeling,” she told one interviewer back in the day. That’s how it usually works. Nude modeling is a gateway drug to the porn industry. “I moved to California and got a job as a topless dancer. I loved dancing so much I stopped going to school… My first job as a go-go dancer was at ‘The Classic Cat’ in Hollywood.” Desiree’s major contribution to porn was her role in the Alex De Renzy classic, Pretty Peaches, in which she played a pliable naïf patterned after the female Candide by Terry Southern in his parody Candy. The rest of her career was more ordinary, albeit distinguished by reliable bouncy scenes. Where is she now? No one actually knows, it seems. Smut king, Al Goldstein, himself now a thing of the past, told those who asked that she had gone mad and died. Other reports say she went back to school and got a degree in psychology. Who knows? It is not likely she returned to Savannah.

Seka

Birthplace:
Virginia

Career span:
1977-1993

The busty, sexually voracious platinum blonde was such a porn icon at here peak she actually had a song written for her. A bunch of songs, actually: the soundtrack to her feature Inside Seka was created by Kenny Dino, an Elvis type who years before had a minor hit with “Your Mama Said You Cried In Your Sleep Last Night.” (It was even covered by none of other than Robert Plant.) The theme song to Inside Seka, if we remember correctly, went “Seka/You’re a woman/You came from Virginia/to pose in the raw.” No that’s probably not it. But the words were something to that effect. If you think Seka’s entrée into the adult biz was some kind of escape from the Bible Belt, think again. From a Chiller Theater Expo interview:

Chiller Theater Expo: What got you into the adult entertainment industry?
Seka: I was part owner of seven adult bookstores.
Chiller Theater Expo: In Virginia?
Seka: Yeah. They were all over the state. At the time 8-millimeter films were the big things. I had to splice them together for the peepshow booths that were in the back of the store. Naturally I watched the films and I thought to myself, “These women don’t look that good, and they are not a fair representation of women.” I figured I could do better and I did. I tried hard to show how women should be represented in adult films.

We would say she succeeded.

Midori

Birthplace:
Durham, NC

Career span:
1994-2008

The African-American all-around adult entertainer, whose singing ambitions included performing, singing not sexually, at the 1998 AVN Awards, may be tied to her filial relations to 1990s pop princess Jody Watley. If she didn’t have enough issues, her dad was a preacher, which, not unlike being born to an army family, prepares one for a peripatetic way of life. Midori said, “I was born in Durham, NC, and we didn’t live there very long. My father was a traveling minister. He held many revivals in many places, and we would move around a lot. And before we moved to Chicago, I don’t know, it must have been between ages three and six, we lived in Kansas City, MO, and then we moved to Chicago.”

Stephanie Swift

Birthplace:
Louisiana

Career span:
1995-2011

The tight-lipped, lithe, non-busty Swift was one of the more distinctive performers of the 1990s, a slow-burner who vacillated between the condom-only world of Wicked and the degradations of the Rob Black school—she inaugurated Black’s “Gang Bang Angel” series in a segment in which she enthusiastically rimmed over a dozen guys, who then took turns spitting in her face. The former dental hygienist, was raised in Louisiana. In her video for XXX Church she said “I went to Bible school…vacation Bible school…member of the 66th Club…I was sexually abused, the first time, by my step-grandfather on my dad’s side, and the second time by my actual stepdad. So my sexuality was messed up from the beginning I think.” Oh dear.

Belladonna

Birthplace:
Biloxi, MS

Career span:
2002-2013

The gap-toothed, tatted, highly outré gonzo porn star tells her own story: “On May 21st, 1981, I was born in a military hospital on Keesler Air Force base in Biloxi Mississippi. Being a military brat, I lived the first part of my life moving from place to place, such as, Germany, Idaho, Delaware, Central California and finally settling down in Northern Utah. I was raised Mormon at birth and eventually lost interest in religion around 12 years old. I moved out of my home at 15 and spent the next 3 years doing random teenage things.” This military brat became an exemplary porn brat at the turn of the century, with almost no fetish too bizarre to be confronted. If you saw her with a strap-on, watch out. The badass ex-Mormon image took a bit of a beating when ABC News journalist poked into her “I’m a Porn Goddess And I Love It” pose and made her cry on national television. But Belladonna took it all in stride and came back harder than ever, even doing lesbian scenes while highly visibly pregnant, for instance. She quietly dropped out of hardcore, and started sporting a strikingly different look, in a small but pivotal role in Paul Thomas Anderson’s film Inherent Vice, performing fully clothed (and doing a good job) under the name, Michelle Sinclair.

Carmen Hart

Birthplace:
North Carolina

Career span:
2005-2008

From a website bio: “Carmen Hart grew up in North Carolina and is a full-blooded member of the Lumbee Native American tribe. She grew up in a Christian home, but she says that her family was not very strict. At fifteen, she lost her virginity. Carmen attributes the movie Striptease as her inspiration to begin stripping.” God. Why do porn people have to have, in the main, such horrible taste in movies. “Hart won the regional Miss Hawaiian Tropic contest in 2004,” the bio continues. “Hart drove to Fayetteville one night and stopped at the first strip club she saw,” the bio continues to continue. Well OF COURSE she drove to Fayetteville. For a while the petite, perky, not-too-heavily-endowed-on-top Ms. Hart seemed poised to fill the void left by a then somewhat inactive Stephanie Swift in the Wicked firmament. Aside from her killer shape and fetching drawl, she had some welcome performing chops: her mini-blowbang in The Girl In Apt. 3C is a smut classic. But Carmen’s reign was short-lived. This excerpt from one of her interviews provides a possible clue as to why: “If only the one billionaire that needs this kind of girlfriend could come and see me. Give me a shout out at [address redacted] and let me know if you are Sugar Daddy material. I’ll make it worth your while.” Like the song says, I ain’t saying she’s a gold digger….

Sunny Lane

Birthplace:
Georgia

Career span:
2005 – NOW

“The girl next door gone hardcore,” as her website puts it, was born and Georgia, then raised in Tampa, Florida. The aptly named Sunny, whose smile is as wholesome as her body is what-da-fuh, is actually managed by her parents, who did the same thing for her back when she entertained dreams of being a professional ice dancer. An exemplary porn performer who kept a level of excitement and intrigue as she explored snowballing with Marc Davis and anal with Manuel Ferrara, then…eased out of performing, only to ease back in again. The amazing Lane knows exactly where she’s at: “I’m a product and I know that. And I’m a dang good product.” Those who can afford to can sample the product in the real world: Sunny also does stints at Nevada’s legendary Bunny Ranch. 

Bree Olson

Birthplace:
Houston, Texas

Career span:
2006-2013

Another girl-next-door type, very blonde-blue-eyed cheerleader-like, but never quite as adventurous performer as Sunny Lane…nevertheless, bouncy, enthusiastic, and comely, she gained her biggest fame as one of “Charlie’s Girls;” yep, another porn actress who made the dubious life/career move of getting mixed up with Charlie “Winning” Sheen. After making a few movies trading in on the association, the Texas girl started distancing herself from the adult world and her Facebook page now announces: “I was an adult actress for 5 years and have since closed that chapter of my life. I am now in pursuit of a mainstream Hollywood career.” Best of luck, she will be missed.

Alexis Texas

Birthplace:
Castroville, Texas

Career span:
2007 – NOW

“Everything’s bigger in Texas, and that’s why my big bootie is soooo big,” Alexis is heard to say this phrase in, we’re betting, more than one interview probably. The bodaciously curvy blonde got christened as “Buttwoman” just one year into her porn career, so you can bet the bootie is all that and more, particularly as white girls go. This attribute, along with some truly prodigious carnal skills, inspires an unusual amount of devotion from her fans. “At the AVN convention one year,” Texas recalled in one interview, “a fan waiting in line and came up to me and had this vial full of dirt. And he said to me, I want you to always remember your roots, and then he pulled out a handful of pictures. He had gone to my hometown and got dirt from where I live and put it in the necklace and took pictures from around my town.” What can one say but “Yikes,” and then “Thanks?” 

Kagney Linn Karter

Birthplace:
Houston, Texas

Career span:
2008 – NOW

The self-described “Fuckbunny” recalls of her childhood years: “I was pretty active in sports in school, I was a cheerleader. I grew up always outside, my grandparents owned a cabin in the woods. I was very family oriented always doing outside activities. I was a tomboy, did rafting, camping, jet skiing, stuff like that. My grandparents are deer hunters so I was always outdoors, whether it was cold or warm.” Well, you’d never know any of this to look at her now. The teensy (five foot four) big-titted (fake, but really delightful) Kagney, after taking a brief break in 2013, came back with orgy and DP scenes to beat the band, and her latest opus is a super-intense interracial gang bang. The south’s gonna do it again, indeed.

Keisha Grey

Birthplace:
Tampa, Florida

Career span:
2014

“I’m from Tampa, so skateboarding is mostly what we do there,” Keisha Grey notes in her first showcase feature, the full-bodied Keisha from Mile High Video. The sandy-haired, pillowy-bodied hottie was asked to reflect upon the size of her entirely natural and entirely delightful breasts: “It’s either a C or a D, but I’m not 100 percent sure.” These youngsters, so cute. The El-Lay cutie has racked up an impressive bunch of credits. Anyone doubting her sexual potency needs to check out the way she nearly drives Manuel Ferrara to premature ejaculation in Manuel’s Fucking POV. Not since MF met Penny Flame in Sport Fucking have we seen such particularly combustible sexual chemistry. How about a Raw scene with Keisha some time, huh, huh pretty please?

Dillion Harper

Birthplace:
Florida

Career span:
2012 – NOW

With her blindingly white smile, semi-bubble butt, slim hips and perfect boobs (which look even better accentuated by tan lines, which she frequently sports), the cute-as-a-button Ms. Harper has a near-teen appeal that’s almost literally dangerous. Her prior professional experience includes working at an Olive Garden in Naples, Florida. Then graduating to a country club, a member of which referred her to the skeevy but innovative Florida porn concern Bang Brothers. Nice country club members they got down there. Here’s young Dillion reflecting on her direct experience of working in a Florida country club: “Because it’s a big retirement place, I had a lot of old farts constantly hitting on me and being old pervs.” Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Stoya

Birthplace:
Wilmington, N.C.

Career span:
2007 – NOW

The intimidatingly buff, athletic, and uber-intelligent Stoya, of Serbian and Scottish descent, seems like the type who got born in the Tarheel State for the express purpose of leaving it. According to a Village Voice article about her, “she returned from her kindergarten class in North Carolina and demanded to be homeschooled.” After getting a high school equivalency diploma at 16, she went out to Philly and worked at an anarchist bookstore. Like Belladonna, Stoya enjoys overturning expectations of what a porn star ought to be, and does so apparently by occasionally flirting with the notion of leaving the biz entirely.
