The very thought of adult film stars conjures up the images of sexy sirens and handsome hunks in our minds! The adult film industry is a thriving one with some of the major stars raking up millions through their performances in porn movies. Until a few decades ago, there was much stigma attached to the adult film industry but it didn’t deter the likes of gutsy women like Candy Barr from venturing into the “forbidden territory.” Beginning her career as a prostitute, she eventually made her way into the adult film industry, earning the title of "the first porn star." As pornography gained more mainstream attention over the years, more performers were attracted to enter the industry. While a majority of porn stars are female, with the likes of Erica Boyer, Serena, and Tabatha Cash gaining a massive fan following, men like Ron Jeremy, John Holmes, and Peter North have also proved their worth as adult film stars. In fact, it’s not a woman, but a man—Ron Jeremy—who is listed in the Guinness World Records for "Most Appearances in Adult Films!" Read on to know more about famous adult film stars.
