Jenna Jameson Biography

Heralded internationally as the world’s most famous adult performer and the “Queen of Porn,” Jenna Jameson enjoyed 15 years in the spotlight before retiring in 2008. In 2013, Jenna softly returned to the industry by doing some webcam shows and a few endorsement deals, but she has not appeared in any large-scale adult production since her official retirement.

Early Life

Born in Las Vegas, Nevada to a police officer father and a Vegas showgirl mother, Jenna inherited her mother’s good looks. Jenna spent her childhood putting those looks to use by frequently entering beauty pageants. Jenna was also enrolled in ballet classes for fifteen years. Her first serious boyfriend, a tattoo artist, gave Jenna her signature double-heart tattoo above her right buttock.

Entering the Industry

Before making her foray into porn, Jenna attempted to follow her mother’s career path as a Vegas showgirl but was denied for not having the right height specifications. Determined to find her place in the limelight, Jenna began working as an exotic dancer and a nude model. After a few of her nude photographs found their way into men’s magazines and Jenna began getting attention, she felt ready to enter the adult industry. Jenna cites her boyfriend leaving her in 1993 as the true catalyst for her career. Jenna filmed the first scenes of her career with starlet and future roommate Nikki Tyler, which were a series of lesbian softcore shots filmed by Randy West. Not long after shooting those scenes, Jenna got noticed and her career began to take off. She then got her first breast implants in 1994 in order to help advance her career further.

Career

By 1995, Jenna had an exclusive contract with Wicked Pictures and her career was really beginning to take off. At first, Jenna only did girl-on-girl scenes. Once signed to Wicked, however, Jenna felt comfortable taking the next step towards her goal of becoming the biggest star in the industry. Her first big-budget film under her new contract, Blue Movie (1995), won a stream of nominations and garnered her the attention to win a landslide of newcomer honors during the following adult awards season. By the new millennium, Jenna’s career was well underway and she was undoubtedly one of the highest paid stars in the industry. In 2000, Jenna launched her own multimedia site and studio, ClubJenna with ex-husband and fellow adult performer Justin Sterling. ClubJenna later sold to Playboy for an undisclosed, but very large, amount of money. Before her retirement, Jenna succeeded her goal of becoming the biggest name in porn, appearing in hundreds of adult films and fulfilling what is now an everlasting legacy in the business.

Other Ventures

On top of her wildly-successful adult film career, Jenna’s legacy has extended into a multitude of other business ventures for the starlet. Jenna’s autobiography, How to Make Love Like a Porn Star: A Cautionary Tale made the New York Times Bestseller list. Jenna has also given license for companies to produce anatomically-correct models of her body for sex toys and adult-themed videogames; and her voice for moaning ringtones. Jenna’s brand also expands into fashion – with her own line of barware, perfume, handbags, lingerie, and shoes, sold exclusively through high-end retailers.

Mainstream Success

Unlike many stars before her, Jenna’s popularity crossed over into the mainstream entertainment sphere as well. Notable appearances include the role of Mandy in Howard Stern’s autobiographical film Private Parts, a voiceover role as herself on the popular cartoon sitcom Family Guy, multiple voiceover spots for popular videogames like Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4 and a starring role in the comedy-horror film Zombie Strippers (2008).
