13 of the Most Famous European Porn Stars

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Euro porn is one of the most instantly recognisable styles of adult movie in the world. And we’re not just talking foreign languages and tell-tale landmarks. The continent produces a diverse mix of styles from the currently popular Czech heritage films to the classics from German studios like extreme production company, John Thompson of German Goo Girls fame.

What unites the majority of the content being produced in Europe is an eclectic mix of continental liberalism with traditional hardcore action. Often, the filming style is high quality but errs on the side of amateur offering a voyeuristic aspect to the movies. What is decidedly not amateur about European porn is its stars.

In this piece, we take a look at the most famous European porn stars. Past and present, male and female, from east to west, we give you our top picks of Europe’s most famous adult film performers.



Famous European Porn Stars By Region

With fifty countries making up the continent of Europe, we’ve grouped many of these into regions to come up with our ultimate list of famous European porn stars.

Baltics: Estonia, Lithuania & Latvia

We kick off our search for Europe’s most famous porn stars by looking east at the Baltic states of Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia.

Nestled across the Baltic Sea from Scandinavian Finland and Sweden but bordering Russia, the influence of the eastern European is obvious in looks but the appetites will remind you more of their Nordic neighbours.

It was a hard choice for the Baltics with petite Latvian Viola O making the cut as well as fellow compatriots Beata Undine and Adria Noir. Very nearly making the hot spot was Tania Rusof who was discovered by, and later married, the French director, Pierre Woodman.

Estonia offers plenty of Playboy models but also the 1970s star, Kristina Bellanova.

However, our top pick has to be Lithuanian, Svetlana Chernova. She is best known for her bareback work in the UK for Glamourchicks as well as her interracial and orgy scenes. You can catch her in action across around 70 feature films from producers as diverse as Fake Taxi, Public Sex Adventures, Chavley Court and PureCFNM.

Described by many in the industry as the ‘Queen of Blowjobs’, Chernova swallows on set and her easy going nature and enjoyment of her work is clearly evident on screen.

Belgium

Our choice Belgian porn star has to be Eva Karera. Starting work as an adult model, Karera moved into film in 2007 making over forty films with French studios and directors including Marc Dorcel. In 2008 she reached the US markets whilst appearing in content produced by the Reality Kings, Brazzers Network and Sin City.

She is still working in the industry and has a cougar appeal which helps her secure regular work for titles such as Frat House Moms, Big Cock MILF Surprise and Big Tit Soccer Mom Orgy.

With a recent investment in a new breast augmentation (34G if you’re interested) in 2017, Karera shows no signs of slowing down.

Honourable mentions should also go to  Julie Skyhigh and Hot Marijke, both of whom have big followings on the porn sharing sites XVideos, Pornhub and XHamster. Marijke also works as an escort allowing fans the opportunity to get up close and personal with their favourite Belgian porn star.

Eastern Europe

We’ve grouped together a big area of Europe here including Hungary, Poland, Ukraine and Czech Republic. Though there are plenty of nude and glamour models from these countries, not as many of their porn stars are famous outside of the region. However, we’ve come up with a strong selection of likely candidates including the AVN Female Foreign Performer of the Year 2010 Aletta Ocean (Dora Varga), fellow Hungarian Amira Adara, Polish Laureen Pink and Czech, Barbara Summer.

Our choice pick is the 80s legend, Dolly Buster (born Nora Dvořáková) who appeared in more than 100 European porn movies. Born in the Czech Republic, she was prolific in Germany and was voted the hottest porn star working in the country in 2008.

Her work has not gone uncelebrated and she is the winner of many Venus Awards as well as earning a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000.

Now retired, Dvořáková writes crime fiction featuring a female sleuth is a retired porn star.

France

There is no doubting the calibre of porn star produced by this quintessentially sexy country which is why we found this region of Europe particularly tricky. How can you choose between the likes of legends Brigitte Lahaie, Barbara Doll and Claudine Beccarie or current stars like Ava Addams, Natasha Nice and Liza Del Sierra?!?

And that’s before you through in the infamously big-chested, Lola Ferrari.

We’ve all got our own individual favourites when it comes to French porn stars and we have to go out on a limb here and choose Katsuni.

Her Asian heritage and French zest has made Katsuni a popular European porn star. Image via Club Katsuni.

Born in Lyon in 1979, Katsuni has a mixed heritage with a Vietnamese father and French mother. She started in France to produce her early films but went on to work with big names like Reality Junkies, Digital Playground and Brazzers Network.

Best known for her anal scenes, Katsuni retired from porn in 2014 but won plenty of awards during her career including 17 AVN Awards, 2 XBIZ Awards and many European gongs. She was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2014.

Germany

No country on this list produce more regular porn stars than Germany and many have a local following that may make them unheard of outside of the country. However, Germany is also responsible for some of the world’s most famous porn stars including Madison Ivy….yes, she was born in Munich!

American superstar Amy Reid was also born in Germany; her parents were stationed there.

Another difficult category to select from, we have to pay homage to the likes of Katja Kassin (famously married to American porn star, Sledge Hammer), the prolific Nina Elle and that other American with German roots, Briana Banks.

But, we have to make a choice and here we may split the camps but we’ve gone retro with a name from the late 1990s; Gina Wild.

Born in 1970, Michaela Jänke adopted her stage name in 1999 when an amateur film she made with her husband, Axel Schaffrath, got spotted by a Euro-porn producer. She went on to make several German language porn films with Schaffrath (and others) which were very popular at the time, particularly in Australia.

After retiring from porn she worked for a while in a brothel in Frankfurt admitting she was addicted to sex. Though she might not be the most famous European porn star on this list, we think she ought to be.

Greece

Greece hasn’t produced as many porn stars as their horny Ancient ancestors would probably have liked though there are quite a few nude and glamour models kicking around the industry. American, porn star Vannah Sterling, has a Greek heritage but you’d need to look to the likes of Julia Alexandratou and Nikki Dohmer for true Greek porn stars.

But, fear not, we have been captivated by the success of a pair of Greek porn stars who we’d like to add to the list.

Inna Innaki (formerly Inna Sirina) and her husband Teo are currently enjoying the title of most watched Greek porn stars. Starting as amateur performers and strippers, the pair went professional in 2011 in the film Orgia sto KTEP.

The pair continue to work together but it is Inna who has gone on to greater heights. She made her US debut in 2016 for FTV MILFS and has won the DDF Productions Best Newcomer Award in the same year.

Italy

Like France, Italy has produced more than its fair share of porn stars over the years and selecting for this region was like opening a fresh box of chocolates. Though hardcore pornography was only legalised in this southern European nation until 1980s, the Italians can lay claim to some of the biggest names in porn.

The likes of Cicciolina (aka Elena Staller) may have gained more international renown but names like Asia D’Argento, Gia Malone, Alura Jenson, Clarissa Bruni and Ursula Cavalcanti have all earned themselves loyal fanbases.

After much consideration, and for obvious reasons, we’ve plumped for Valentina Nappi to represent Italy on this list.

Making her debut in 2011 alongside (underneath and on top of) fellow Italian, Rocco Siffredi, Nappi has gone on to win the XBIZ Award for Best Foreign Female Performer of the Year (2017).

She is the most viewed porn star from Italy at the moment and has over 1900 videos on porn sharing platform, XVideos. Her exploits have been viewed more than 429 million times on this one tube site alone and it’s not hard to see why. Nappi oozes a natural sex appeal and has a curvy 34C-24-36 body.

She has already worked with most of the major porn studios including BangBros, DogFart, Brazzers, Monsters of Cock, Reality Kings and Digital Playground.

Netherlands

The Netherlands have produced a good many porn stars though many have failed to find widespread fame outside of their own country. Famously, the Dutch approach to porn is more explicit and liberal than many other countries in Europe rendering much of the good on-screen work  too extreme for export.

However, there are definitely some names here that will be familiar including AVN Hall of Fame inducted, Deidre Holland regular Playboy and Hustler model, Terri Summers and producer Helen Duval.

Our top choice for the most famous European porn star for the Netherlands is Bobbi Eden.

Whilst undertaking an erotic shoot for a magazine, she met Jenna Jameson who invited Eden to perform with her. She turned down the offer, not ready at the time, but went on to shoot her first adult movie just six months later with her husband, Cain.

Also known as Vixen De Ville, Bobbi Eden won Best European Actress in 2003. Image via FreeOnes.

 

Starting her career in 1998, Eden continues to be present in the adult industry though she mainly concentrates on her other industries at the moment (fetish websites, film production and writing for various adult-centric magazines).

Eden has made over 100 movies and has an ardent base of fans both in her own country, Europe and in the US.

Nordics: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway & Sweden

These five Nordic nations have a very active adult industry though when it comes to porn stars not many make the international stage. Perhaps in a country where sex is regarded so liberally a profession in prostitution is just as enticing? Regardless of the reasons, there was still a good selection to choose from in the Scandi countries including the Swedish, big-breasted MILF, Puma Swede and Sweden’s first international porn star, Linda Thorén.

Representing Norway, we have winner of the 2000 Hot d’Or best European Actress award, Dina Jewel and late starter Vicky Vette from Norway who made her first film in 2002 aged 38.

From Finland we could choose from the artist and former porn star Rakel Liekki who was once dubbed the ‘Apostle of Porn’ and busty blonde, Saana.

However, it is to Denmark that we turn for our selection of the Nordic choice for most famous European porn star. A country that gave us one of FHMs most sexy women, Kira Eggers and 70s star of 8mm, Vivi Berens, also delivers up hot newcomer, Alicia Amira.

Famously appearing in the news in 2016 with her desire to have as much plastic surgery as possible to look like a living sex doll, Amira works with the Brazzers Network.

Portugal

There are quite a few current porn stars hailing from Portugal, some of whom, like Ana Monte Real, seem to be enjoying careers in Brazil. Others like Charlyse Bella (aka Tinkerbell) and Susan Melo produce much of their work in Europe.

Our pick of the bunch is Portugal’s number one most watched porn start for 2017, Erica Fontes.

Starting out in 2009, the then 18-year old Fontes, performed with fellow countryman, Angelo Ferro in ‘O Diário Sexual da Maria’. The same year she became the world’s first star of a 3D porno movie and by March 2010 she was performing live sex shows at the Eros Porto festival.

Winning the 2013 AVN Foreign Female Performer of the Year Award, Fontes works still works in Europe as well as in the US and has worked with some of the biggest studios including Team Skeet, Amateur GFs, Reality Kings and Brazzers Network.

Her blowjob scenes seem to make her very popular and she does like a cumshot.

Spain

Spain has a good domestic adult industry and is one of the European countries that is pioneering the development of VR porn content. Always at the cutting edge of the adult entertainment scene, there have been a lot of notable Spanish porn stars over the years.

Names you may recognise include Gigi Love, Pamela Sanchez and the stunningly energetic redhead, Amarna Miller. Miller is a local favourite and is often the top porn star search coming out of Spain.

Our choice, and current flavour of the month, is Bridgette B. Though she now lives in America, Bridgette B was born in Barcelona and moved to the US in 2004. Her porn career started in 2008 and she has since made movies for BangBros, Brazzers Network, Reality Kings and 21 Sextury.

A 5’ 8” blonde bombshell with enhanced 32F breasts, Bridgette is instantly recognisable on camera for her tattoos; one on her lower ribcage ‘La jalousie est une maladie’ (Jealous is a Sickness) and ‘Spanish Doll’ on the back of her neck.

She has notched up almost 300 million video views on popular porn sharing site, XVideos and is best known for her big-tit hardcore as well as anal action.

Switzerland

Switzerland is known for many things including its handy little utility knives, cheese and their clocks but you can also add top porn stars to the list.

Names you may recognise include Laetitia Bisset (star of the documentary ‘Heidi in Pornland’), Lolita Bonita, webcam porn star Aviva Rocks and bondage/fetish performer, Anastacia Pierce.

There’s also the popular Swiss porn star, Caroline Tosca, who started out in the industry in 2013 with an interracial gangbang.

Our pick for Switzerland goes a little off-piste with the older lady, Elizabeth Carson, a hot dominatrix type porn star who goes in for a lot of leather and latex. You can catch her work through FreeOnes. Though Carson isn’t widely known outside of Zurich, she is definitely one you to

UK and Ireland

The Brits have had a relatively softcore approach to the porn industry throughout the 80s and 90s with few names of any international acclaim. The sovereign state has principally had a love affair for nude and glamour models with the likes of Melinda Messenger, Samantha Fox and Linda Lusardi being staple diets.

Recently though, the UK has produced some popular homegrown porn star talent in the form of performer/director Tanya Tate, the busty Dani Amour and the popular Brazzers star, Jasmine James.

We should also pay homage to one of the first ‘Squirt Queens’ of the 1990s, Sarah Jane Hamilton.

American all-star, Riley Reid has Irish and Welsh heritage. However, she can also lay claim to Dutch, Puerto Rican, German and Dominican!

Our top pick for the UK and Ireland is the multi-award winning, Sophie Dee.

Born in Wales, her two stepsisters are also adult movie stars, but this Cinderella is the cream of the family.

Originally working as a lap dancer then a Page 3 model, Dee has 36F breasts and regularly stars in big tit titles. She has appeared in over 450 movies and is married to fellow porn star, Lee Bang.

Let’s Hear it For the Boys….

We all enjoy some girl on girl action but, when it comes to hardcore action, you’re going to need a leading man.

We’ve picked some of Europe’s most infamous adult actors to finish off our homage to the European porn scene.

Rocco Siffredi (Italy)

Born in Italy in 1964, there are few other names in the adult industry that are as well known as that of Rocco Siffredi. Starring in over 1300 films and winning 34 AVN Awards, the Italian Stallion is a powerhouse in the porn world.

He is known for his intense scenes which include some rough penetration and has been quoted as wanting to see his female co-performer’s “…eyes going up from being surprised”.

Now in his early fifties, Siffredi is mainly working behind the camera rather than in front of it but was still performing as recently as 2015. Having retired once and returned to the set, don’t be surprised if you see more from this European porn legend.

Manuel Ferrera (France)

Winning AVN’s Male Performer of the Year more times than any other actor, France’s own Manuel Ferrera has won 37 awards and been nominated over 100 times.

With more than 1300 credits to his name, Ferrera is one of the highest paid names in the industry and has an estimated net worth of more than $4 million.

A former protégé of Rocci Siffredi, Ferrera is known for is explicit and intense scenes. Like his mentor, he has gone on to diversify his talents and now directs adult movies. He also runs a series of commercial enterprises including live videogame streams!

Ben Dover (UK)

He might not be the most decorated porn star on our list but Ben Dover did win the AVN Breakthrough Award in 1997. His name is synonymous with British porn from the 1990s and most Brits would recognise this local lad, at least by his stage monika.

Born Simon James Honey, Dover was voted one of the most influential people in porn according to Hustler Magazine (1999).

He was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006 by the UK Adult Film Industry and inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2011.

Mick Blue (Austria)

Chosen by CNBC in 2016 as one of the top 12 porn stars of all time, Mick Blue lives the lifestyle we can all dream of. Married to fellow porn star, Annika Albrite, the pair historically won the double AVN Awards of Best Female and Best Male Performers in 2016; the only married couple to ever do so at the same ceremony.

Blue has also won a further 17 AVN Awards, 5 XBIZ Awards and an array of other industry titles. He was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2017.

As an actor, Blue has over 1400 credits and he has also many directorial titles to his name. Image via XVideos.

His stage name is derived from his startlingly blue eyes but the combination of his good looks, ripped body and stamina have rightfully earned him his place on this (and many other) list(s) of top European porn stars.

Csoky Ice (Hungary)

Voted the Best European Actor at the Hot D’Or Awards in 2009, this Hungarian porn star came to prominence in the 1990s winning and being nominated for domestic and international awards.

In a career spanning 15 years he has over 500 credits to his name and has worked with a string of studios including Rocco Siffredi Produzioni.

Despite admiring his work ethos we can’t feel sorry for him when he claims his job is ‘hard work’:

(Speaking about his critics) “…they all seem to forget, that it is hard work. It is not like having sex with your wife where you can actually enjoy it.”

Our heart bleeds….
