50 Greatest Female Adult Entertainers



Ranking porn stars is difficult business. Where do you even begin? It’s all so subjective. If you were to line up 100 guys and ask them each who their top 10 favorite porn stars were, you would probably get 1,000 different answers.

So, as we attempt to break down the 50 greatest female porn stars of all time we should probably explain how we came to our conclusions. What criteria we used.

Well, the rankings are based on a combination of things; longevity, hotness, awards, popularity, dedication to the job, and their overall legacy. We’ve look at similar lists (and their comment sections), we asked for opinions on social media, and we think we’ve got the perfect blend of old-school, new-school, raunchy, reserved and everything in between. And if you disagree, feel free to let us know in the comment section below. Let’s do this…

  1. No Kay Parker…..No Candy Samples…..No Annette Haven. This list is pure garbage. Half the newer stars you listed cant compare to the three I listed.

  2. What no Angelina Valentine, Julia Ann, Holly Body, Anne Malle, Jewel Dnyle, Shayla Stylz, Seka, or a host of others?

    Also the top 5, especially #1 is a joke. Jenna Jameson doesn’t even deserve top 15 status, much less #1. I don’t care that she made the most money, when she’s shady & overrated porn star of all-time.

  3. On this lists Ashlyn Gere is never included. She was THE best seller for while, but most important, is considered on of the best if not the best actress of all time (and I mean, actually acting) Just for that, she should appear.

  4. The real best ones are not on this list. Monique Alexander, Julia Ann, Ann Marie Rios, Nicole Aniston. This is pure rubbish
