Mike Oxhard posts on ADT: “Sometimes, a new pornstar will come on the scene, and her early looks and performances will be great, then they’ll get worse. Other pornstars will start off slow, then get much better as they get more experience. Pornstars performance and looks get worse from my observations when they get a contract, get a boob job, do only lesbian scenes, lose weight. A few whose scenes got worse I think include Tera Patrick, Tegan, Inari Vachs. A few whose scenes got better include Sabrine Maui, Haley Paige, Lisa Sparxxx. Who are your nominations?”
Trina Michaels got better and better. I mean she already looked fantastic with the blonde hair when she first started but when she went with the darker hair then I was really sold!
Flower Tucci. Did very little work when she first started eventhough I was hooked the very first time I saw her doing internet work for WestCoatGangBangTeam and Tony’sCastingCouch. Those were her very early work and now she’s one of the best girls in the industry. I would say she got better and better also.
Shanna McCollough. I was never a fan of hers in the 80’s but when she made her comeback in the 90’s I just couldn’t believe how perfect she looked especially with that awesome big butt. I was and I’m still very upset she retired so soon again!
Cindy Crawford. Never paid any attention to her when she was an IR-dodger but now she’s turning up in a lot of IR titles and it’s great to see that so yes she got better.
Ariana Jollee. She looked very hot from the beginning but I never bought the titles she was in until she decided to do interracial so she also got better.
Of course it can work the other side, I mean I don’t have to write the tragic story of Naomi again. Melissa Lauren also went downhill for me. I use to be a huge fan. She was awesome when she first started but then she went dark hair which I really didn’t like and then she went girl/girl and now she’s with some company that is known for it’s softer couples-appeal kind of movies.
Knocko posts: “I did not notice Rebeca Linares when she first got into the business. energetic performer but visually i just was not into her…..then she styled her hair and toned up her bod and glammed up a bit with the make up and i suddenly realized how cute her face is and what a piece of ass she is! i guess the companies realized it too because they started putting her on box covers.”

I can’t think of any pornstars who actually got worse but I can think of more than a few who have remained mind-numbingly and heart-breakingly stagnant…
- Austin Kincaid
- Avy Lee Roth
- Brandy Talore
- Ice La Fox
- Jenaveve Jolie
- Julia Bond
- Kimberly Kane
- Nautica Thorn
- Victoria Allure
What’s sad is that I’m a fan of every girl on that list. They’re just somewhat frustrating to watch. If you look up the word “vanilla” in the dictionary, their pictures should be right next to it. You’ve seen one of their scenes, you’ve basically seen them all.
As far as girls who have gotten better, I can only really think of two worth mentioning: Annie Cruz and Harmony. Take a look at their performances during their first years in the biz and catch one of their scenes now — night and day. And in an extremely good way.
10000 Days posts: “Sara Stone started out stellar, and then after she went blonde she looked cracked out and dazed in all her scenes. She became too over the top and soon left the biz. Hope she is well.
Missy Monroe was the opposite. I didn’t really care for her early scenes. As she progressed, she became exactly what any self-abusing porn consumer could want, a sexy strumpet with no hangups about hardcore sex.”
Jenna Jameson and Tera Patrick are the best examples of performers who have peaked–because they have found their personal level of what they will do in a video–and are no longer breaking new ground in their work. Also, I would add, Jana Cova, Stormy, Carmen Luvana, Nicole Sheridan, Sunset Thomas, Teagan, Savanna Samson, and Jesse Jane, and many, many, many, many others.
Still on the “up” elevator, who are still exploring their sexuality, are performers like: Hillary Scott, Sasha Grey, Naomi (?), Monique Alexander, Stefani Morgan, Bree Olson and other newbies. They are still finding their limits and as they explore them, fans feel they are “getting better.” This also explains why the industry demands a constant flow of new girls–who come into the biz and publicy explore their sexual limits.
