Loni Sanders’ Porn Star Biography

Early Years Modeling

Loni Sanders was born to an American father and Japanese mother, which accounts for her exotic appearance. Sanders is a petite 5'3" with measurements to match - 34B-22-35. She started her career in the adult entertainment industry as a glamour model doing nude pictorials in men's magazines like Gallery, Swank, Pub, and Genesis. Her most famous centerfold was featured in the April 1980 issue of Penthouse.

Moving to Movies

In 1980, Sanders met adult film star and future husband Mike Ranger on the set of a soft-core production. He suggested she try her hand at acting in X-rated films. Initially, she performed exclusively with Mike in her boy/girl scenes, but eventually began taking on the other male porn stars as well. Interestingly enough, she was not credited in her first movie, Sexboat (1980); her steamy scene with Mike Ranger was added only after the movie title and credits were already produced. She played the role of a woman who's sent on an all-girl cruise as punishment for cheating on her husband (played by Kevin James).

Loni's other notable titles include Never So Deep (1981), Summer of '72 (1982), Beauty (1981), and the parody 8 to 4 (1981) in which she plays Jane, a hapless office employee who likes to use the copy machine very unconventionally. In Never So Deep she plays Ginger, a sexy but persistent detective who always finds the right girl. Beauty is the X-rated contemporary version of Beauty and the Beast, directed by Warren Evans, with Sanders playing Beauty Mara and Jamie Gillis in the role of Martin Gross, the human incarnation of the ugly Beast.

Administrative Work and Retirement

After divorcing Ranger in 1984, Sanders quit performing sex on camera and began working on set as a production manager for Vivid Films, which was owned by her new lover, Steve Hirsch. From time to time she appeared in non-sex cameos. In 1997, Sanders and Hirsch split up and she moved away from the porn scene for good. She currently lives in Los Angeles with her boyfriend Marco, the ex-CEO of Metro Studios.

Loni Sanders was one of those rare porn stars who also could act. She appeared just in a handful of films. In fact, she was in fewer than 40 full length features but many of the films in which she appeared are now considered all time classic adult films. Loni Sanders has been inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame and XRCO Hall of Fame (2006, as Film Pioneer).

JM says:
 Read from page 6 starting from bottom to top

JM says:
 Girls just wanna have boys was one of the first movies she did in video. Then it was Sensuous moments with her new hair style.

JM says:
 Also missing from this collection is Girls just wanna have boys. But you can find the scene from Loni Sanders little sexpot.

JM says:
 And Nasty is what counts for most of us that spend our time at these joints ehh

JM says:
 Some argue Annette Haven was hotter then little Loni. Yeah she was definitely a beauty but not as nasty as Loni. At least from what I have seen
