New year, new you, and a new batch of pornstars to salivate over. The year may be young, but there has already been time for some stars to jump to the front of the sexual pack.
Who are the best pornstars that will be lighting up screens big and small in the year to come? We are glad you asked.
The AVN Awards are in January, but we are already thinking ahead to handicapping the field for 2020’s awards. We have done the, shall we say, hands-on research to find 19 who are our picks to dominate this year.
Try to make it to the bottom of the list. We dare you.
19 of the Best Pornstars Around
We cast our net far and wide to assemble this list, and we did not discriminate. Below, you will find newcomers sprinkled in among old favorites. Porn is democratic in the tastes in caters to, and we wanted to represent the people.
Take a peek for yourself.
1. Karla Kush
We love a hometown girl. Karla Kush was born in Las Vegas, so we are already inclined to love her. Her sexy blonde hair and piercing blue eyes are icing on the cake.
Still under 30, Karla got her start with Skeet in 2013, and we’ve been grateful ever since.
2. Shyla Jennings
Here is another under-30 cutie.
Chances are good you already know the name Shyla Jennings, since she won AVN awards in 2014 and 2016. Those were the years she took home All Girl Artist of the Year honors.
As a writer herself, Shyla brings substance to her performances, not to mention a fantastic overflowing bush. And we will be honest. Some may find it frustrating, but we kind of love that she works primarily with women.
Stoya packs an explosive punch in a petite frame. Not only is she one of the hottest girls around, she is also an outspoken advocate of the adult entertainment industry.
Where most pornstars pack their Twitter profiles with an abundance of sexy pictures and requests for gifts, Stoya uses her platform to speak her mind and effect social change. Scroll through any given day, and you will see insightful commentary and links to thought-provoking articles about the industry.
When it comes to watching her on screen, knowing all of this only makes her more attractive.
4. Mia Melano
Porn is a young person’s game, and Mia Melano is about as young as a pornstar can get legally. Mia debuted in 2018, and her age matches the last two digits of the year. There are not many pornstars born in the year 2000, but Mia Melano is one of them.
She is also one of the brightest of any young pornstar. Only time will tell if she has what it takes to last in the industry, but for now, her future is shimmering.
5. Nia Nacci
Nia Nacci is another relative newbie. Say that five times fast. She just turned 20 in December, and she is already making a name for herself as one of the sexiest women in porn.
Nia Nacci is the first woman of color to appear on our last, but as you will see, she will not be the last. The whole entertainment world, not just the world of porn, is getting more diverse, and we see this as nothing but a good thing. The libido does not choose what it wants, and what it wants is more of Nia Nacci in 2019.
6. Holly Hendrix
While she may not share the earth-shattering qualities of the guitar player with whom she shares a surname, Holly Hendrix is almost as raw as Jimi.
Holly is one of the tiniest stars on our list. She is under 5 feet tall, and she is only 20 years old. Her tiny frame and lack of experience did not stop her from winning the AVN’s Best New Starlet award in 2017.
Holly has picked up other hardware too. Most notably, she won an AVN for Most Outrageous Sex Scene for an anal scene with John Strong. She has already accumulated double penetration experience in her early years, and we expect her to bring the realness even harder this year, pun most definitely intended.
7. Sara Jay
Enough of the petite women. Well, we include more, but let’s slow that train of arousal for now. With our next pornstar, we enter the realm of curves upon curves.
Sara Jay is already a queen in the world of adult entertainment. At 41-27-41, her proportions are ungodly. No one said porn had to be realistic, and we can hardly believe Sara Jay is a real woman who walks among us.
8. Kendra Lust
This list is not a popularity contest, but if it were, Kendra Lust would have little competition. Not only is she a bona fide star, she owns her own line of toys and an agency for adult talent, Society 15. She has even branched out into the world of directing.
We also love Lust’s backstory. It’s a porn-watcher’s fantasy come to life. She began her professional career as a nurse, transitioned into porn as a hot webcam model, and now, she is one of the hottest stars in porn.
9. Anastasia Lux
Curviness does not have to be limited to the traditional curves of a Sara Jay, though Anastasia Lux has those in spades. Lux has cushion all over, and she knows how to move in a way that drives us wild.
Anastasia Lux is no fresh face, unlike some of the other girls on this list. Her experience shows, and the world is better for it.
10. Kira Noir
We would love to work out with Kira Noir. Yes, for the fantasy of what would happen if we did, but also because we want to see the routine that keeps her so fit. She is active and flexible, both of which are qualities that make her body practically jump off the screen.
It is this star quality that netted Noir the 2017 AVN award for Best New Starlet. She is still a relative newcomer, having started in 2015, and we are only beginning to see all of the sides of her ravenous sexual appetite.
11. Bonnie Rotten
Bonnie Rotten is a badass. With ink not just on her tits but over her nipples, she rock tattoos like almost no pornstar has had before. She just had a baby, and motherhood has not slowed her down one bit.
If anything, Bonnie is crazier than ever. She started young and in the world of fetish modeling, and her scenes these days are omnivorous and out-there. This is what we are looking for in a tattooed pornstar, and Bonnie Rotten embodies the archetype perfectly.
12. Brandi Love
MILF porn is evergreen, and Brandi Love is one of its queens. We are actually kind of shocked that she is only in her 30s, as her scenes make her seem much more mature.
We are not complaining. This just means we will get to enjoy her for years to come.
13. Nicolette Shea
Nicolette Shea has used the power of social media to become one of the premier pornstars of the 21st century. She has hundreds of thousands of followers across various profiles, and we know why. She perfectly encapsulates everything over the top that we love about porn: big butt, big lips, and big fake breasts.
14. Hitomi Tanaka
Hitomi Tanaka is the only Japanese pornstar on our list, but we hope there are more where she came from. Her look is innocent, but her scenes are dirty. She bucks Asian pornstar stereotypes with monster tits, and we are happy to add her to our list of curvy stars to watch.
15. Anya Olsen
There is another kind of minority we have not included so far, and Anya Olsen breaks the redhead barrier. While she is not a true ginger, her changing hair color makes her intriguing in a way we love from our pornstars.
Anya Olsen does it all, even anal. Combine that with her youth-she was born in 1994-and you have the very definition of a hot young up-and-comer. Again, we are intending every single one of these puns.
16. Ella Knox
Ella Knox was born in Indio, California, but her look is much more exotic than your typical California porn star. Her long, teardrop tits make for a body that is more unique than the average pornstar too.
17. Gina Valentina
Not yet 22, we can tell Gina Valentina has a bright future because of her name. Some of the best pornstars have Italian names, whether they claim the Beautiful Country as their homeland or not.
18. Romi Rain
The appearance of porn parodies is one of the most fun trends in the industry, and Romi Rain rules the parody roost. The way she takes a superhero makes her a hero in her own right.
19. Moriah Mills
You do not have to go to Chicago’s Wiener’s Circle to enjoy a chocolate shake. All you have to do is search “Moriah Mills.” Mills has mounds of flesh to feast the eyes on, and seeing her big, round ass in action is enough for us to forget what year it is in the first place.
The Best and the Rest
19 is a tiny number when you consider the vast landscape of porn. These are our picks for the best pornstars in the year ahead, but you are sure to make your own discoveries. Have fun exploring!
