90's Porn Stars VS Today

Jump aboard the “Wayback Machine” or pile into your nearest “TARIS” because it’s time to take a trip back in time to look at the most popular female porn stars of the 90’s. We take a moment to compare these 90’s Porn divas to today’s high-octane, fuck-tastic XXX starlets.

Mia Khalifa

Mia Khalifa - Porn Star

Mia Khalifa is the perfect example of good timing. She gained popularity very quickly as she burst on the adult scene at exactly the right moment. Mia was born in Lebanon but moved to the US with her family in 2000. She was discovered while working at a local burger joint and soon after this busty Middle-Eastern cutie was starring in hardcore scenes. One of her first videos featured Mia Khalifa wearing a hijab. Her controversial appearance nearly let the internet on fire (or maybe it was her huge, perfect tits).

My Personal Honorable Mention:

Sunny Leone

Sunny Leone has successfully transitioned from porn star to mainstream Bollywood actress. Sunny was born in Canada and while her early film work was primarily adult, since 2012 she has completly focused on her Bollywood career. Sunny was born to Sikh Punjabi parents and her East Indian heritage has helped her stand out in the adult industry. In 2013 Sunny Leone won the AVN Crossover Star of the Year.

Porn Star Trends

If we take a close look at each group of notable porn stars we start to see commonalities and differences when it comes to how they started in the biz and how their careers have evolved.  In the 90’s it was common for XXX starlets to start out as dancers and that’s probably not news for many of you. Today we see new porn stars being discovered in completely new ways. Some starlets of today begin as live cam models, some are simply discovered thanks to social media.

New technologies have changed how many newcomers enter the industry. In the early 90’s you wouldn’t see the same kind of access to information and for many women how to start out in porn was a bit of a mystery. We can also see that the porn stars that tend to do well today tend to be very active on social media. The longevity of many female porn stars has decreased, but those that understand how to sell themselves as a brand continue to succeed.

We also see a greater variety in the physical attributes of the top porn stars of today. While earlier porn titles were dominated by busty blonde starlets, we see the popularity of alt porn stars and performers of different ethnicities and body types on the rise. We hope to see more of this trend in coming years.
