Stoya’s Porn Star Biography

Early Years

Stoya was born in North Carolina to a Serbian father and a Scottish mother. As a child, she wanted to become a dancer and started attending dance lessons at the age of three. She was home-schooled and got her high-school diploma before the age of sixteen. Because her father worked in IT, Stoya had access to a lot of electronics and gaming equipment, which she says developed her love for technology. “I was three when I was using DOS. My mom taught me how to read, and my dad taught me how to navigate DOS," she has said. At a later age, Stoya moved to Delaware, where she spent a semester at Delaware College of Art & Design, but dropped out because of her problem with authority.

Modeling and Finding Fetish

After relocating to Philadelphia, she attended a summer program at UArts. Some of her jobs in Philadelphia included being a secretary, flier distributor, and a go-go dancer. Stoya appeared in several music videos for bands that, according to her, "no one will ever hear of." In May 2009, Stoya moved from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. She began posing for a friend of hers, and those photos eventually led her to modeling and working for alt-erotic websites. One of the websites she worked for asked if she was willing to do a softcore scene for a DVD they were putting out. Not interested in mainstream porn, Stoya discovered an interest in pornography through her interest in BDSM and via fetish newsgroups on the internet.

Career

Stoya made her porn debut in 2007 when she was 21 years old. She was featured in two DVD productions for Razordolls and made a non-sex, cameo appearance in two Vivid Alt titles before being contacted by Digital Playground with the proposition to perform in a hardcore, lesbian scene with Sophia Santi. The scene in question never happened, but in August 2007, she met with several Digital Playground representatives and was asked if she would star in a pornographic movie with male talent. After careful consideration, Stoya agreed. In October 2007, Digital Playground signed her to an exclusive, three-year contract. The first scene she shot for them was for Stoya Video Nasty (promoted on the DVD box as the first film featuring her engaging in heterosexual intercourse with a male actor), but her first movie released by the company was Jack's POV 9.

Personal Tidbits and Mainstream Appearances

Stoya stated that exploring her sexuality on camera has been a fun adventure. Stoya enjoys art and one of her hobbies is creating clothes which she wears in her scenes and during erotic conventions. She likes reading, with sci-fi and fantasy being among her favorite genres. Stoya avoids relationships because she believes that monogamous commitment will affect her ability to deliver the best possible performances in adult films, though in June 2009 she was reported to be dating Marilyn Manson. Stoya acknowledges the importance of social networking in her career; she's active on MySpace, Twitter, various internet forums, and maintains her blog at XCritic.com. In 2009, Stoya appeared in her first mainstream crossover as Kamikazi Shegun 5000 in the award winning 48 Hour Film Project The Kingpin of Pain.
