November 15, 2018 | PORNSTARS | No Comments

Sasha Grey is a name taken by Marina Ann Hantzis, who is now 30 and who has already quit making porn videos. Sasha Grey was born in California in a family of a working class and they did not have particularly big money in the family. When she was five, her parents divorced. So Sasha, or rather Marina, was raised by mother who remarried in 2000. Her father died in 2015.

Sasha attended several schools but was never happy during the school age. She graduated early and started taking classes in acting, singing, and dance. To pay for living and studying, she worked as a waitress. However, she obviously lacked money and figured out that it will be easier for her to realize all her talents and aspirations if she makes big money quickly. So she decided to move to Los Angeles and enter the porn industry.

Her first sex video was an orgy with Rocco Siffredi, and she virtually became famous after it. Her unusual for porn actresses appearance and improvising eventually brought her 13 awards in the porn industry, including the Best Female Performer of the Year, twice. All who worked with Sasha underlined she was eager to do extreme things and unusual things, and yet she approached her work seriously and professionally.

Sasha Grey worked with numerous porn stars in the industry and even created her own agency L.A. Factory Girls. She stated that her parents were not particularly happy about her involvement in the adult movie industry, and that numerous times they tried to convince her to quit. However, Sasha knew her goals and so she decided to achieve what she wanted first. Despite all those issues within the family considering her job, Sasha and her mother are in good relationships.

It is stated that Sasha Grey became noticed as the next potential big sex movie star already after six months of working in the porn industry. She was called one of the most popular young porn stars, and one of the most popular stars overall in the adult movies

Every year, Pornhub names some of the most popular actors and actresses in order to establish some kind of rating in the industry, and maintain a certain hierarchy. These ratings may mean basically nothing, but the viewers can look for the best stars’ videos and check them out, the actors and actresses can feel satisfied to be the first in some of the ratings, while the industry representatives assess who performed how and what are the general trends.

Pornhub offers one of the most reasonable ways of establishing a rating – by the frequency with which somebody’s name was searched on the website. So, according to Pornhub, there are several the most popular actresses as for now.

Pornhub’s Choice

It is not exactly Pornhub’s choice, of course, because it was the users who searched for particular actresses. These are:

  • Lisa Ann – this porn star has scored an unimaginable 237,170,207 video views in 2016 and still holds her grounds as the most popular actress on Pornhub. By the way, she does not look like a sex actress at all.
  • Mia Khalifa – this skinny and busty girl has gathered a bit less than Lisa Ann, but still holding the second place is also pleasant.
  • Riley Reid – she was not that often searched for on the website, but, according to statistics, her videos found on a random basis were the most frequently watched.
  • Sunny Leone is another star that does not look like a porn actress at all. It is a general suggestion that the most popular porn stars are actually blondes. Well, Sunny is not. But still, she was the fourth among the most frequently searched porn performers on the website. Sunny
