21 Best French Porn Stars

Ooh la la! Do we have the hottest French fancies for you to enjoy!

The French adult movie industry has always been the envy of Europe and has long produced some of the finest porn talents on the continent.

From hugely popular studios like Dorcel and mega porn stars like Manuel Ferrara to influential directors like Pierre Woodman and activists like Ovidie the French adult industry is a playground for legends and a hot bed of fresh new talent.

In this feature we wanted to pay homage to some of the best French porn stars ever. From legends of the seventies and eighties right the way through to the hottest vixens in the industry today.

Best French Female Porn Stars

French women have an international reputation for being sexy and sultry lovers and so it’s little wonder that their porn industry showcases some pretty special performers.

We’ve taken a look at adult movie stars who were born in France and who have taken the porn industry by storm to become the most popular, prolific or talented female performers.

16. Lola Reve

Born in Montpellier in 1992 and now aged 28, Lola Reve has notched up more than 40 film credits in the Internet Adult Film Database (IAFD).

Most notable of her performances are the AVN award nominated productions of Lola, dressage en orgie (2014) and Luxure 1: Femmes mariees (2014). The latter also helped win her a nomination for Best Female Foreign Performer of the Year at both the AVN and XBiz awards in 2016.

Like many French porn stars, Reve has worked with the Dorcel Network but can also be seen in scenes produced by studios like Tiny 4K, Porn Pros, Passion HD and Fantasy HD.

This petite blonde hasn’t worked in adult movies since 2018 but is still ranked in the top 70 porn performers in the country (XVideos). On this tube site alone she has notched up more than 16 million video views and earned herself a following of almost 5,000 fans.

With her tiny 32A tits, scandalous love for anal scenes and an eager love for lesbian action she kicks off our list of best French female porn stars with an absolute bang.

If you want to see her in action then there are a few decent clips on the tube sites but we can definitely recommend her performances in:

  • Lola, dressage en orgie (2014, Video Marc Dorcel)
  • Anissa et Lola a l’Ecole des Infirmieres (2014, Video Marc Dorcel)
  • Manuel’s Fucking POV 2: Paris Edition (2014 Jules Jordan Video)

15. Luna Rival

Next up we have a firm fan favorite in the shape of Luna Rival.

Born in Dijon, France in 1997 she was an early starter in the adult industry debuting in 2015 at the age of 18.

Initially working with Marc Dorcel, Explicite-Art and French Bukkkake it was obvious from the start that she had something special.

Rival has gone on to work with some major studios both in Europe and the United States including Team Skeet, Reality Kings, Pascals Sub Sluts and Private.

A fresh-faced teen on debut but with an edgy darker side that comes to the fore when working for fetish studios like Kink, she is one divine femme perverse!

Winner of the 2019 XBIZ Europa Awards Female Clip Artist of the year, Rival is the holder of several SpankBank titles including:

  • Most Adorable Sexual Deviant 2020
  • Life Sized Human Hand Puppet (Best Fistee 2020)
  • More Beautiful Than Every Painting in the Louvre 2020
  • France’s Greatest Gift to the USA Since The Statue of Liberty 2018
  • Monet-esque MaSSterpiece 2019
  • Best Smile 2019

Over her six-year career so far she has amassed more than 280 performer credits to her name on IAFD. As a result of her massive back-catalog of work she has come to the attention of masses of fans on the tube sites where on XVideos alone she has notched up almost 400 million video views! This ranks her among the top ten most watched French porn stars in the world.

Check out some of Luna Rival’s best movies. Image via AEBN.

If you only catch her in a handful of titles then these are probably some of her finest:

  • Luna Rival: 24h avec Pascal OP (2015, French Bukkake)
  • Luna, 18ans, petite coquine de Dijon (2016, jacquieetmicheltv.net)
  • Lovely Luna Teen Dream (2017, JimSlip)
  • Etudiantes pour jeunes puceaux (2018, Marc Dorcel)
  • Mariage a trois (2019, Marc Dorcel)

Rival continues to create adult content although much of her recent work has been independently for sites like OnlyFans. You can follow her on Twitter where she is pretty active and regularly keeps fans updated with her new content.

14. Eloa Lombard

best french porn stars eloa lombard

A bit of anal specialist, Eloa Lombard has only notched up around 70 performer credits but remains a notorious name in French porn, notably for her association with ‘zoo’ porn.

Born in Paris in 1983 and now retired, she worked in the industry during the period 2006-2019. Debuting at the age of 23 with Saucisson Productions in Castings des petites cochonnes 1 she did go on to work with some more well-known studios including Nathan Blake, Hard Brazil and Mike’s Apartment. However, much of her back catalog is with smaller independent producers.

With more than 40 million video views on XVideos alone she is in the top 25 most watched French porn stars around but we think she deserves an even wider audience.

At 5’ 7”, with long dark hair and a sultry pouting mouth she excels in oral action but, as we said at the top of this section, she is an anal queen. Often taking on multiple bulls for some hardcore scenes, she takes a real drilling in the back door.

We think her best work can be seen on Anal Buffet 8 (2013, Evil Angel) and Private Specials 36: Threesome Addicted Euro Sluts (2010, Private).

You can check out some of her more popular scenes on all of the main tube sites but she is no longer producing new content.

13. Angell Summers

Born in Chartres, France in 1987 Angell Summers is one of the top ten most watched French porn stars of the last decade.

Starting out in the industry, as most French porn performers do, with Marc Dorcel she has gone on to appear in more than 190 titles including many for top US studios such as:

  • Evil Angel
  • 21 Sextury
  • Reality Kings
  • Digital Sin
  • Brazzers
  • Mofos
  • Kink
  • Digital Playground

Though she hasn’t made any new content since 2017 her video clips continue to attract large audiences and on XVideos alone she has been viewed more than 186 million times.

She’s one of those porn stars who worked a lot and was pretty versatile in terms of genre. From interracial, DPS and gloryholes to nude fight clubs, fucking machines and orgies she tried it all.

Summers is an absolute doll of a woman with a cutesy look which belies her lustful energy. At 5’ 4” with a 34C-25-36 figure she is a petite, curvy but all natural woman.

For our money, her best scenes are those she filmed with Evil Angel and Marc Dorcel which include:

  • French Angels (2008, Evil Angel)
  • Manuel’s French Fucking Vacation (2011, Evil Angel)
  • Soiree (2013, Marc Dorcel)
  • Education perverse a la francaise (2012, Marc Dorcel)

12. Tiffany Doll

Of mixed Vietnamese, Tunisian and French descent, Tiffany Doll was born in Cherbourg in 1986.

Ranked in the top 20 most watched French porn stars in the world with more than 211 million views on XVideos she is a prolific performer with more than 510 credits to her name on IAFD.

Doll started out in the business back in 2010 working with a handful of studios including the ubiquitous French porn producer, Marc Dorcel along with JimSlip, Harmony Films and JTC Video.

Her first films were all anal hardcore scenes and there was messing about with her decision to make it to the top.

Between 2011 and 2016, she featured in around 50 new releases a year and tried her hand at pretty much every genre she could get cast for. From A2M, DP and gangbang to dogging, orgies and gangbangs she worked with a ton of studios. Her kink scenes were particularly well received by fans and she made several bondage, fucking machine and SM movies.

During this period she was recognised by the industry with several nominations for awards both from AVN and XBiz. And in 2013 she took home the SpankBank Technical Award for Best Thing To Happen To France Since The French Fry!

At 5’ 2” she is a diminutive starlet who aptly suits her stage name, Doll. Certainly there are many of her scenes where her male co-stars use her like their very own fuck doll.

Even with so many scenes to sift through, it wasn’t hard to find our favorites to recommend and we think that these titles will transform any man into a die-hard Tiffany Doll fan:

  • Tiffany Doll in Anal Ooh La! La (2010, JimSlip)
  • Backstage with Tiffany Doll (2011, 21Sextury)
  • Prince The Penetrator (2012, Smash Pictures)
  • Wasteland (2012, Elegant Angel)
  • Journal d’une vierge (2013, Marc Dorcel)
  • Baron’s Whores (2014, Wicked Pictures)
  • Gangbang and Orgies Oh My (2016, Colette)
  • Naughty Sitters (2019, Rebecca Lord)

Over a decade on since starting her career in porn, Tiffany Doll is still an active adult movie star and she also creates plenty of content for her fans. You can catch up with her on Twitter to find out more about subscribing to her exclusive fan club.

11. Melissa Lauren

best french porn stars melissa lauren porn movies
Images via AEBN.

A prolific performer with more than 650 credits to her name on the IAFD, Melissa Lauren started working in the adult industry back in 2003 when she was 19 years old.

Born in La Rochelle in 1984 she started straight out with hardcore scenes for the infamous John B Root and working with several small independent producers like Horus, Thagson, Blue One and Alkrys.

Within her first year she was already demonstrating her hard-working ethics and in 2004 she appeared in more than 120 scenes! By now she was working with larger producers including Twistys, Jules Jordan, Hustler and Devil’s Film.

With so many studios, it’s unsurprising that Lauren is a diverse performer and you can find her work covers plenty of genres from mainstream hardcore, lesbian and solo to fetish work like golden showers, bondage and fisting.

However, she’s another French star who loves her anal hardcore and most of her boy-girl scenes include a lot of backdoor action and DP.

Nominated in 2010 for the AVN award for Foreign Female Performer of the Year, she originally started studying to be a chef before she found herself in the porn industry. In fact she worked as a pastry chef at a fine dining restaurant in Paris for a year so clearly knows what whets a man’s appetite!

If you want to watch Melissa Lauren in action then stream some of her top scenes on VOD. Image via AEBN.

We think she is a tasty on-screen morsel and we had difficulty whittling down our favorite of her releases but we think these movies show her off to her very best:

  • Operation: Desert Stormy (2007, Wicked Pictures)
  • Fashionistas Safado: Berlin (2007, Evil Angel)
  • Sport Fucking 4 (2005, Jules Jordan)
  • Jailbait 1 (2005, Jules Jordan)
  • Gang Bang Darlings 3 (2004 DVSX)
  • Elastic Assholes 3 (2005, Jules Jordan)

Now 36, Melissa Lauren is still working in the adult industry though these days most of her work is in private clip sales but you can follow her on Twitter for more details or to become a fan.

10. Lou Charmelle

best french porn stars lou charmelle
Image via Facebook (Lou Charmelle Page for Fans).

Born in Périgueux in 1983 but with Tunisian heritage, Lou Charmelle entered the porn industry in 2008 aged 25.

Initially working with just a few Euroepan studios she really got into her stride during 2010 when she started collaborating with producers in America.

Starring in scenes produced by the likes of Reality Kings, Naughty America and Kink she was nominated in both 2011 and 2012 for the AVN Female Foreign Performer of the Year.

Predominantly starring in anal hardcore action, this dark-haired beauty is just 5’ 3” tall but rocks an athletic 34B-24-32 body decorated with a couple of tattoos and piercings.

She is an exciting performer to watch whether she’s working on a girl only scene or taking a drilling in the backdoor from a monster cock. The key with her performance style is  that she clearly LOVES sex!

Charmelle is currently ranked in the top 30 most watched porn stars from France across the major tube sites. And with more than 78 million video views and 11.8k fans on XVideos alone she remains a popular performer.

If you want to check out Charmelle in action then why not stream some of her best movies. Images via AEBN.

With more than 170 performer credits to her name on IAFD, Charmelle has a decent back catalog of scenes to choose from but we think these are some of her best:

  • Bienvenue chez les Ch’tites Coquines (2008, JTC Video)
  • Jerkoff Material 5 (2010, Jules Jordan)
  • Initiation of Lou Charmelle (2010, Marc Dorcel)
  • Anal Fanatic 1 (2010, Elegant Angel)
  • Manuel’s French Fucking Vacation (2011, Evil Angel)
  • Fill Her Up (2012, New Sensations)

Now aged 37, Charmelle is still creating adult content and you can follow her via Twitter to find out more on her latest releases.

9. Sharon Lee

Of mixed Vietnamese and French heritage, Sharon Lee was born in Paris in 1988.

She started out in the industry in 2009 initially working with a handful of small French studios but she very quicky became a firm favorite on the circuit. Much of this was down to her enthusiasm and energy on-screen and she was particularly well skilled in the anal and DP department.

Over the last 12 years she has earned over 180 film credits on the IAFD and has over 422 million video views on XVideos alone. This makes her one of the top ten most watched French porn stars in the world and when you check her out, you’ll see why.

Obviously, she has the instant appeal of an Asian beauty but beyond those Eastern looks is a typically French aloof and sultry charm which makes her extra tantalizing.

She is addictive to watch and even when she’s working with large group your attention is drawn to her. And at t 5’ 7” with an all-natural 40C-25-35 firm and tight figure, Lee is more than easy on the eyes.

We think it’s the combination of her obvious love for what she does coupled with her “unobtainability” that makes watching her get banged something very special.

You can stream some of Sharon Lee’s best scenes via AEBN.

There are lots of scenes we could recommend and most of them feature A2M, anal and/or DP but these are probably the finest ones you can stream:

  • Fucking French Girls 6 (2019, Safado)
  • Stress Relief (2015, Massage Parlor)
  • Watch My Asian Pussy Squirt (2017, Immoral Productions)

Though officially retired from studio porn she still creates adult content and you can find her on Instagram and OnlyFans.

8. Clea Gaultier

best french porn stars clea gaultier

Winner of the 2021 Female Foreigner Performer of the Year AVN Award, Clea Gaultier is one of the hottest current adult stars from France.

Born in 1990, Gaultier was a latecomer to the party, debuting in 2016 at the age of 26 working with Private, Marc Dorcel and Viv Thomas.

Before she came to porn she was a Philosophy and Psychology student at the University of Lyons but with a body like hers it would have criminal not to share it with the world. Forunately Gaultier came to that opinion herself and she became a lingerie model.

Talent spotted by the adult industry, she is now a contract star with Marc Dorcel but has also worked with Rocco Siffredi, Pierre Woodman, Greg Lansky and Markus Dupree.

She is the archetypal French porn star with a rocking hot bod, smokey seductive eyes and a provocative pout. We just think there isn’t a man alive who could fail to get hard watching her at work.

And, with more than 180 film credits to her name there’s plenty of scenes to choose from if you want to find out more.

Best known for her intense cowgirl riding style you can check her out in some of our favorite titles:

  • Prisonniere (2017)
  • Educating Clea (2018)
  • Femme parfaite (2019)
  • Indecente 2: Clea (2019)
  • Bad Girls 2: Lesbian Desires (2019)
  • Mariska: Desires of Submission (2020)

Very much still an active member of the porn industry, Gaultier has a huge following on OnlyFans and Twitter where she shares details of her latest work.

7. Natasha Nice

It might come as a surprise for some to find out that this All-American girl-next-door is actually French!

Born in Fontenay-sous-Bois, France in 1988 her family moved to the United States in 1991. Nice was raised in Seattle and is now living in the Bronx, New York.

We’re totally going to claim her as European though and with a back catalog of more than 700 great porno movies you’ll understand why.

As well as being a prolific performer, Nice is also a very versatile porn star and she has taken part in pretty much every genre going. Known for her hardcore all-girl scenes as well as group sex, face-fucking, gagging and facials.

With more than 769 million video views on XVideos she is one of the top five most popular French porn stars in the world.

Obviously being based in the United States she really only works with American studios but these include all of the usual suspects such as Blacked, Brazzers, Mofos and Digital Playground.

After graduating from a private school, Nice immediately started working in porn at the age of 18 and made the most of her teen appeal whilst she could.

By the age of 24 she had amassed over 400 performer credits and was very much at the top of her game. It was a surprise therefore when announced her retirement in 2012.

A short-lived break, Nice was back in the saddle before long and in 2017 was nominated at the XRCO Awards for Best Cumback.

A winner of the XBiz 2019 award for Web Star of The Year, Nice now creates content for her own premium website as well as working with some professional studios.

She is a stunning and buxom starlet and even though she is fast moving towards a more mature audience, she is still as fresh faced today as she was back in 2006.

best french porn stars natasha nice porn films
Some of Natasha Nice’s many great porn films can be streamed on AEBN.

If you want to check out the journey of how she has conquered the world of porn then we can recommend this whirlwind tour of some of her best scenes:

  • Dear Abby (2011, New Sensations)
  • Love Is A Dangerous Game (2011, New Sensations)
  • Love Marriage and Other Bad Ideas (2012, New Sensations)
  • Hold The Phone: Dirty Talk (2018, Girlsway)
  • Not Who She Seems (2020, Pure Taboo)

Now aged 32, Nice is still creating adult content and you can follow her on Twitter to find out more about her latest releases.

6. Jessie Volt

best french porn stars jessie volt
Image via Official Jessie Volt Facebook Pages.

Born in Bordeaux in 1990 Jessie Volt is the French-Canadian star of almost 300 adult films including several award-nominated scenes.

She is ranked in the top 15 most watched French porn stars on the planet having notched up an impressive 160 million video views on XVideos.

A petite and photogenic blonde with an all-natural 32B chest Volt is also known for her bubble butt and anal hardcore performances.

We think she is a dynamite porn star who performs with an amazing amount of energy and enthusiasm. She’s pretty versatile and is just as at home in a boy-girl scene as she is with all-female action and even three-way sex.

Though Volt has been nominated half a dozen times for both the XBiz and AVN Foreign Female Performer of the Year Award she is yet to take home the trophy. However, she has won the European Female Performer title at the Galaxy and Europorn awards.

She originally trained as a professional photographer and it was during her time as a student that she started out in the adult film industry. First working as a stripper, she made her film debut in 2010 at the age of 20.

Her first scenes were with John B Root (Jean Guilloré), one of the most infamous and influential porn directors working in France at the time.

Within two weeks of the release of her first film she was being represented by Mark Speigler and was offered roles in the United States.

Since then, she has gone on to work with multiple international studios and has starred alongside some pretty big names including Tori Black, Nikki Benz and, fellow French national, Manuel Ferrara.

best french porn stars jessie volt porn films
Check out some of Volt’s best scenes in these great titles. Image via AEBN.

There’s so much great content that she’s produced we’d be hard pushed to pick a favorite but these should definitely be on your shortlist:

  • Anal Buffet 7 (2011, Evil Angel)
  • Brazzers Worldwide: Budapest 1 (2012, Brazzers)
  • T And A (2013, Adam & Eve)
  • Blondes Go Black (2014, Mile High)
  • Dans la peau d’un acteur X – VR (2015, Dorcelvision)

Unfortunately, Jessie is pretty quiet these days and has been inactive on the adult scene since around 2018. But, as we know, cumbacks are common so watch this space….

5. Nikita Bellucci

best french porn stars nikita bellucci

Born in Pau, France in 1989 and now aged 31, Nikita Bellucci is of mixed French and Italian descent.

Best known for her double penetration and gangbang performances she has starred in over 200 porn films. She is also one of those rare performers who can take triple anal penetration and fisting and it is this which has earned her a special army of fans.

She started out in the industry in 2011, initially working with French studios like Dorcel, Explicite-Art, Saucisson Productions and Hexagone.

By 2013 she had moved her talents to the United States where she worked extensively with big names like Dogfart, Kink, Evil Angel, New Sensations and Legal Porno.

However, unlike a lot of compatriots she didn’t sell out for the almighty dollar and returned to France regularly to continue making French language films.

With a full sleeve of tattoos on her left arm and dozens of other inks, Bellucci is an instantly recognisable star of porn. A perfect pocket rocket at 5’ 4” and with an all-natural athletic 34C-26-36 figure she is a striking looking woman.

What we love about her style though is that she is sooo expressive on camera. Both vocally and facially, there is no doubting just how much she is enjoying herself in her scenes.

Now a director and creator of ethical porn herself, Bellucci has not yet won any major awards but has been nominated multiple times for both the XBiz and AVN Foreigner Female Performer of the Year award.

best french porn stars nikita bellucci porn films
You can find plenty of Bellucci’s best content on AEBN including these top titles. Image via AEBN.

If we had to narrow down her best scenes then we could definitely recommend these great titles starring Nikita Belluci:

  • Slutty and Sluttier 19 (2013, Evil Angel)
  • Rocco’s Perfect Slaves 5 (2014)
  • Sodo a la francaise 1 (2014)
  • Hard in Love (2016)
  • Fighter (2016)

Very much an active creator of adult content still, you can join the army of fans who follow Nikita Bellucci on OnlyFans and Twitter.

4. Ava Addams

Narrowly missing out on the top 3 best French porn stars we have a surprise entry for some in the shape of Ava Addams.

Though very much an American porn star, Addams is actually a French citizen (both her parents are from France and she has a dual nationality)!

One of the most infamous and, in our opinion, hottest MILFs in the industry, Ava has won, and been nominated for, multiple awards.

She started out late in porn at the age of 29 back in 2008 and was already being cast as a cougar in some of her debut scenes. Now aged 41 she has matured into a fine-looking older woman and excels in those classic roles of seductive mom or lusty wife.

Addams has starred in well over 600 adult film titles and has worked with most of the major studios in the US including Brazzers, BangBros, Reality Kings, Naughty America, Digital Playground and Mofos.

She is the number one most watched French porn star in the world and also ranks in the top ten most popular porn stars globally. With more than 2 billion video views on XVideos alone she is perhaps the most well-known adult performer in our list.

In 2012 she had a boob job increasing her already busty chest from a D cup to a DDD cup and she is well known for her big tit performances.

best french porn stars ava addams porn films
Check out Addams in these great titles. Image via AEBN.

With such a huge catalog of work to plough through there’s so many great performances to recommend. But if you’ve got limited time then we’d suggest starting with these:

  • I’m Gonna Bang Your Mother (2014, Brazzers)
  • Doctor Milf (2014, Pink Velvet)
  • Maternal Instinct (2014, Airerose Entertainment)
  • Ava’s All In (2015, Girlfriend Films)
  • Best Of Brazzers: Ava Addams (2020, Brazzers)

Still an active performer you can follow Ava Addams on Twitter or check out her premium official website for more great scenes.

3. Katsuni

best french porn stars katsuni

Though she retired from porn in 2013, Katsuni remains one of the most celebrated French adult performers in the business.

And, despite not having released any new content in over 8 years, she is still ranked in the top ten most watched French porn stars in the world.

With more than 229 million video views and 30,000+ subscribers on XVideos alone, she is as red hot today as she was when she started out back in 2001.

Real name Céline Tran, Katsuni is a striking looking woman with Asian features. Born in Lyon in 1979, she is of mixed Vietnamese/French heritage.

Whilst studying for a degree in literature she worked as a Go-Go dancer where she was talent scouted by a Penthouse photographer.

She initially accepted the offer of adult work as a bit of a challenge and something more exciting hat studying to be a teacher. Fast forward two years and Tran eventually dropped this idea altogether and pursued a full-time career in porn.

Over her twelve years in the business she went on to start in over 500 adult movies working in France, Spain and Italy as well as the United States.

Best known for her anal action, she also did a lot of threesomes and DP was also a bit of a signature style for her.

In 2006, she became the first French contract star with Digital Playground and worked with them on multiple releases including the infamous Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge (2008).

An inductee to the AVN Hall of Fame in 2014, Katsuni has won multiple awards and nominations for her work including:

  • 2004 AVN Award – Best Sex Scene in a Foreign-Shot Production, Affaire Katsumi (2002)
  • 2004 European X Award – Best Actress (France)
  • 2004 Venus Award – Best European Actress
  • 2009 Hot d’Or Award – Best French Actress

In 2011 she was honored by XBiz with the Crossover Star of the Year Award. The accolade was given to Tran after she successfully launched a new career in mainstream film. She has since gone on to feature in several film and TV roles as well as writing scripts, working as a DJ and publishing her autobiography.

Check out some of Katsuni’s best films. Image via AEBN.

Now aged 42 she is now working as a well-being & sexuality coach. With a back catalog as exciting and diverse as Katsuni’s we’d be hard pushed to pick just one feature but we think she proves she’s one of the best in these titles:

  • Four on the Whore 2 (2006, Platinum X Pictures)
  • Fashionistas Safado: Berlin (2007, Evil Angel)
  • Asa Akira Is Insatiable 2 (2011, Elegant Angel)
  • Lost Angels: Katsumi (2004, Ninn Worx)
  • Body Heat (2010, Digital Playground)
  • In Bed With Katsuni (2012, Video Marc Dorcel)

2. Liza del Sierra

Born in the Parisien region of Val-d’Oise in 1985 but growing up in Bordeaux, Liza Del Sierra is the second most watched French porn star in the world (XVideos).

She started working as a stripper around 2004 and moved into the adult industry in 2005 with the approval of her then husband. Her debut role in Soubrettes de Charme (Lucy Pictures) threw her straight into the deep end with a DP scene that is still pretty hot some 16 years on.

After a few years in the French porn industry making ends meet by working as an occasional escort she tried her hand in Hungary before moving to the United States.

It was in the US where she gained more notoriety, working for studios like Monsters of Cock, Team Skeet and the Dogfart Network.

Now known more for her group scenes, interracial hardcore and bukkake scenes she is still an active performer as well as producer and director.

At 5’ 4” with a 36D-26-36 figure del Sierra is a stunning looking woman but it’s her energy on screen which puts her way ahead of her fellow countrymen. Intense and sultry she mesmerizes her audiences in a way you have to experience to believe. At EuroSexScene we love POV porn and del Sierra really handles this format particularly well!

1. Anissa Kate

It wasn’t hard for us to land on our top French porn star and Anissa Kate lands the top spot by a long margin.

Born in Lyon in 1987, Anissa Kate is of French/Algerian descent and is a triple-winner of the coveted AVN Award for Best Foreign Female Performer.

As well as winning plenty of other awards, she’s also notched up an incredible number of nominations across all of the major industry sponsors.

Starting out in porn in 2011 at the age of 24, Anissa Kate is still an active performer. And with more than 770 credits to her name so far, she may end up being one of the most prolific French porn stars ever!

She is currently ranked in the top five most watched French porn stars in the world and has been watched almost a billion times on XVideos alone.

Her style is pretty eclectic and she has worked with almost every studio going to produce work in all of the main genres including interracial, VR, orgy, anal and bondage.

According to sources in the industry, Anissa Kate is still one of the most sought-after porn stars to work with and brings a HUGE fanbase along for the ride.

At 5’ 4” tall and sporting impressive 36E natural breasts she is an energetic and exciting performer to watch. We certainly think that she is well worth the screen time and only narrowly misses out on the top spot for our favorite French porn stars.

  • Outland 2: Looking for Freedom (2017, Harmony FIlms)

Honorable Mentions

Compiling a list like this always means leaving some people out but it wouldn’t be right to leave out some of these legends of French porn.

Kudos straight away goes to Claudine Beccarie, or the ‘French Linda Lovelace’.  Active for over a decade during the Golden Age of Porn from 1972-1982. Beccarie was one of the nation’s adult film sweethearts.

You can’t appreciate the porn industry of France without also tipping a nod to Brigitte Lahaie, another popular French adult film performer of the 1970s and inductee to the XRCO Hall of Fame.

And there are few people won’t be familiar with the busty legend that was Lolo Ferrari. The woman with the largest breasts in the world, this Eurotrash regular made just a few adult films but became the notorious face of French adult cinema during the 1990s.

Also worth a mention is Cathy Stewart, a prolific star of France’s hardcore films from the late 1970s and early 1980s.

And then we have Dolly Golden, star of more than 200 adult movies and godmother of the Paris Hot Vidéo Exhibition 2000. Golden worked right around Europe and in the United States and is now a public relations officer for Dorcel Films.

And finally, we just had to mention a few more fantastic French porn stars who are well worth checking out:

Top 10 Male French Porn Stars

And finally, what would any good porn movie be without the fellas?

Though there are far less male adult movie stars than there are female ones, they deserve the limelight too and here we tip our hats to our choice of the best that France has to offer.

5. Jean-Yves Le Castel

Star of more than 700 adult movies from 1990 to 2008, Jean-Yves Le Castel was 25 when he got his dream break working in porn.

Though he hasn’t produced any new content for over a decade he is still one of the top ten most watched male porn stars from France.

Real name  Jocelyn Eon he won an AVN award in 2006 for his contribution to the Best Sex Scene in a Foreign Shot Production with Euro Domination (2004).

He initially worked a lot over in Germany with studios like Magma but also appeared in his fair share of Dorcel and Mario Salieri productions.

As a physical specimen, he is an archetypal Gallic man with a rustic and rugged charm. He was certainly popular with the ladies and he has a huge fan following from this time as well as earning himself a great reputation with his co-stars.

Although not largely known outside of France and Germany he is a solid performer of this classic age of French porn.

You can catch him in action across a wide range of films including a lot of anal, DP and threesome scenes. If this genre floats your boat then you’ll definitely appreciate these fine feature films:

  • Matador 1: Now It’s Your Turn (1999, Private)
  • Euro Angels Hardball 23: Double Anal Mania (2004, Evil Angel)
  • Euro Domination 3 (2005, Evil Angel)
  • Anal Cavity Search 3 (2007, Jules Jordan)

4. Mike Angelo

Next up we have an even more prolific star of French adult movies with a performer who has notched up more than 1,600 credits on IAFD!

Born in Nîmes in 1981, Mike Angelo started working in porn back in 2006 and is still an active performer and director.

Nominated multiple times for AVN, XBiz and XRCO awards he has narrowly missed out on winning Male Foreign Performer of the Year no less than 20 times! No wonder then that he was also nominated for a SpankBank award in 2020 as the Most Underrated Fucker……he lost out on this as well.

However, Angelo DID win an AVN in 2014 for his work in the movie Innocente (2013).

And this sort of typifies Angelo’s work to date. Although prolific and a solid performer he is never going to be quite the memorable superstar like Manuel Ferrara or Rocco Siffredi.

At 5’ 5” he is a short leading man and he has been losing his hair since he was in his late 20s so always sports a close crop shave. Despite these ‘limitations’ he is well muscled, tattooed and has an intense performance style that is really quite likable to watch.

For our money, though he might not be the top dog in France (currently ranked 5th most watched), he is living proof that little guys can also get their fair share of pussy. In fact, we think he is just getting better with age and his most recent hardcore scenes are sooooo much better than his early work.

Now aged 40, he has an army of fans who know him as the Euro DILF that both teens and cougars love to fuck. And they can still watch him in action as Angelo is very much still an active performer.

If you want to catch some of his best scenes then we can thoroughly recommend these titles:

  • Innocente (2013)
  • Ballerine le Jour Escorte la Nuit (2014)
  • Pornochic 25: Anissa (2015)
  • Double Anal Addicts (2018)
  • French Fantasy (2019)
  • Dames of DP (2019)
  • Gangbang Devils (2020)

You can follow Mike Angelo on Twitter to find out what he’s working on next.

3. Joachim Kessef

Born in Paris in 1976 and now aged 45, Joachim Kessef started out in the industry in 1996 aged 20. Since then he has gone on to star in well over 1400 adult films and is now a director with Legal Porno.

Kessef is one of those porn stars who works a lot but doesn’t really get the recognition he probably deserves. In his 25 years in porn he’s never been nominated for any major awards and SpankBank probably summed his career up best when the nominated him for Most Underrated Fucker of the Year 2020; he didn’t win.

Despite this he is stil ranked in the top five most watched porn stars from France with over 202 million video views on XVideos alone.

And to perhaps make up for his lack of awards, he was inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame in 2019.

Often cast as the ‘Black Bull’ or another ‘BBC’ in a PAWG gangbang scene, Kessef is a powerful figure to watch and has pounded his way through plenty of premium pussy.

At just 5’ 9” he isn’t a huge guy but he does have a big tool and it is this along with his stamina and charm which has secured him a place in our list.

There really are too many great scenes he has worked on over the years but you can appreciate his best work in some of these titles:

  • Anal French Milfs (2017, Combat Zone)
  • Joachim’s Czech Fuckfest (2009, Evil Angel)
  • Black In The Ass 6 (2005, New Sensations)
  • Planet Orgy 3 (2013, Combat Zone)

You can find plenty of Kessef’s work on the tube channels and you can follow him on Twitter for news of any directorial releases he is working on.

2. Ian Scott

Real name Yannick Dambrinne  but also known by the alias Yanick Shaft, Ian Scott is the prolific star of more than 2,200 adult movies.

Born in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, France in 1973 and now aged 48, he began his career in porn back in 1996.

Winner of the 2001 Hot D’or award for Best European Actor he has also been nominated for dozens of AVN, XRCO and XBiz trophies including Best Sex Scene and Foreign Male Performer of the Year.

One of the most watched French male porn stars, he has amassed over 117 million views on XVideos covering scenes filmed with the likes of:

  • Team Skeet
  • Reality Kings
  • 21 Sextury
  • Private
  • Mofos
  • House of Taboo
  • Anal Inspector
  • Life Selector

Debuting in a Patrice Cabanel movie he initially worked in Italy and France with the likes of Marc Dorcel and John B Root. Since 2001 he has also worked in the United States but he still produces a good deal of French language content.

Yannick is a handsome guy and, at 6’ 1” with a muscled physique and endowed with a big cock (10”), he was always destined to have a career in the adult industry.

Over the years he has earned himself a great reputation as a hard working and professional performer but it is his dominant and confident style that has made him so popular with fans.

  • Sodo a la francaise 1 (2014)
  • Baron’s Whores (2014)
  • Club Xtrem 4: Anna et Kaisa double penetration (2019)

You can follow Yannick on Twitter where he is pretty active about his latest releases.

1. Manuel Ferrara

Needing no introduction at all, our number one male French porn star is none other than the legendary performer, producer and director Manuel Ferrara.

Star of more than 2,500 adult movies, Ferrara has been at the top of the industry since he started out in 1998.

Born in Gagny in 1975 and now aged 45 he is won more than 60 adult industry awards including the coveted title of AVN Male Performer of the Year an incredible six times!

Ferrara has been inducted into both the AVN and XRCO Halls of Fame and has directed more than 280 porno movies.

At 6’ tall and with his signature smouldering Gallic looks, he has become the archetype of French leading male porn stars.

A protégé of another adult industry legend, Rocco Siffredi, Ferrara originally trained to be a PE teacher!

There are few people who have never seen Ferrara in action and he has worked for EVERY studio going in pretty much EVERY genre. Known for his hardcore and rough fucking style he is a dominant character on screen but is known among his co-stars for being a laid back and funny guy.

He must have more going for him than just his muscled body and big cock as he’s been pretty successful with the ladies in his personal life. Once married to (but now divorced from) fellow porn star Dana Vespoli he is currently married to the stunning American porn star Kayden Kross.

Manuel Ferrara produces content for his own premium website and you can catch clips of a lot of his finest scenes on all of the tube sites. However, if you want to catch some of his best scenes then we can definitely recommend some of his award-winning work, including:

  • Fashionistas 1 (2002, Evil Angel)
  • Bombshells 3 (2011, Mile High)
  • Remy 2 (2013, Elegant Angel)
  • Internal Damnation 8 (2014, Jules Jordan)
  • Drive (2019, Deeper)
  • Manuel’s Euro Tour: Paris (2020, Jules Jordan)

Very much an active and influential member of the adult industry both in the United States and Europe, you can follow Manuel Ferrara on Twitter for news of his latest work.

Honorable Mentions

Just like with the ladies, there’s too much French talent in the adult industry to give everyone their dues.

But without a doubt we would like to tip our hats to some other male adult stars of note including:

  • Jean-Marie Corda
  • Paulo Massa
  • Joss Lescaf
  • Jean Val Jean
  • Christoph Clark
