Desiree Cousteau’s Porn Star Biography

Life before Porn

After graduating from her Savannah, Georgia High School in 1974, Desiree Cousteau tried to break into mainstream acting and even got a small role in Jonathan Demme's Caged Heat (1974). However, after that role, her mainstream career stalled and she decided to move into X-rated cinema. Cousteau made her porn debut in 1978 and went on to perform in the industry for about 5 years.

Career and Notable Films

Her first big XXX success was a title role in Alex De Renzy's Pretty Peaches (1978) where she played the lovable amnesia victim Peaches who falls prey to a couple of lusty men (one of them being Joey Silvera). Peaches was constantly taken advantage of - by men (Joey Silvera and Paul Thomas), women (lesbian scene in an adult movie theater), and even one enema lover. Cousteau won Best Actress Award (1979) from the AFAA for that role. In addition, the movie was inducted into XRCO Hall of Fame.

A ditzy, bosomy Southern Belle, Cousteau started to appear both in full-length movies and Swedish Erotica loops. Her next Hall of Famer was The Ecstasy Girls (1979) where she played a movie starlet having a "test session" with Jamie Gillis. She brought a dizzy, goofy and endearing charm to all of her roles, and plunged into her sexual performances with voracious abandon. Porn audiences absolutely adored her, and in turn she didn't disappoint them.

Bob Chinn's Hot'n Saucy Pizza Girls (1978) was a fun-loving venture showcasing Cousteau at her best. She played Ann Chovy, one of four pizza delivery girls that skateboarded upon San Francisco's steep inclines delivering "special" toppings to Shakey Pizza Parlor's loyal patrons. In 1979, Cousteau had a prominent role in Hot Rackets taking on Jon Martin and Mike Ranger in a hot tub at a tennis club, followed by Inside Desiree Cousteau, one of Desiree's most well liked pictures.

She did some work in France, appearing with a fellow American Brooke West and a string of French porn stars in Gerard Kikoine's French Finishing School (AKA Initiation au college) and Enquêtes. She continued her cooperation with Kikoine on American soil, appearing in two more movies - The Tale of Tiffany Lust (1981) and Aphrodesia's Diary (1983), the latter being her swan song.

Life after Porn

Desiree Cousteau left the industry in 1983 after just 5 years. Her last movie was the big-budget international production Aphrodesia's Diary where she had a hot lesbian encounter with French actress named Morgane (Marianne Flowers in the movie credits). She left the industry with around 40 movies and loops to her credit, and many more compilations with her scenes added.

 Thank you, Desiree, for choosing to work in the adult movie industry. I remember watching the title "Pretty Peaches" many years ago, in a theater on Third St. in Louisville.
