Wondering where it all began? Born and raised in Easton, Pennsylvania, Lisa Ann has Italian heritage and she has since lived in various locations throughout the United States including Huntington Beach, California, as well as Boca Raton, New York and Los Angeles. Talking about her small town upbringing and her love of travelling during her June 2014 Men’s Mag Daily interview, Lisa commented that;
“Yeah it was definitely normal but if you have a lot of spirit you can get bored seeing the same people all the time which I did as it was a small town. It made me feel a little trapped. I remember watching 90210 and being jealous because they went to school outside and the weather was always so nice. I just couldn’t wait to get out there and see and I knew I wouldn’t be there my whole life. I love going out there now especially in the summer because it’s so green and the lakes are nice. There are flowers and it’s clean but I couldn’t see myself living there, although your money does go very far in a small town…
I live part-time in Los Angeles and part-time in New York. My family lives in Pennsylvania and it’s a quick trip to see them. I’m so lucky to still have them at this age. I like to go see them a lot and living in New York gives me that opportunity… where you live becomes more about the people than the actual place. You miss your friends so much and it’s great to see them face to face. There are places that are great to retire and you can travel anywhere from. As crazy as it sounds I love Milwaukee. I couldn’t do the winters there but I would just fly down to Florida. Everything in New York and L.A. is just so expensive”.

Lisa has always been a keen athlete and during her high school years she played basketball, football and participated in her school’s ski club. An avid supporter of the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Cowboys, Lisa has often stated in previous interviews that she would have become a sports writer, blogger or reporter if she had not pursued a career within the adult entertainment industry. As Lisa herself stated during her January 2012 CNBC interview;
“I would do anything in the sports world. I have such a passion for sports. I know if I was involved in sports, I would love getting up in the morning just as much as I do now. I’d probably be a sports agent or writer/blogger/reporter”.
From 1990 onwards, 18 year old Lisa Ann began working as a stripper whereupon she soon discovered the lucrative financial opportunities of working within the adult film industry. As Lisa puts it in her own words during her October 2015 Fox Sports interview;
“I was a stripper at the club there, and I’d see these girls come in there who were in porn…They told me about the money they could make and all the travelling they were doing. I wanted that… I worked everything out beforehand. I didn’t just go out there with starry eyes”.
Inspired by her fellow exotic dancers, Lisa Ann began to send several letters to prominent adult film talent scout Larry Flynt and she arranged to have a meeting in Los Angeles with his assistant. Before flying out to Los Angeles to meet with Larry Flynt, Lisa Ann hired a professional photographer in order to acquire some high quality headshots. In this manner, Lisa began to forge a path within the adult entertainment industry.

Lisa Ann : Adult Film Career
Lisa filmed her first ever sex scenes in 1994 for the Metro/ Cal Vista production Cinesex 2. Between 1994 and 1996 Lisa was signed with Metro/Cal Vista and she was contracted to shoot one pornographic production a month. Some of Lisa Ann’s earliest porn productions include Dinner Party 2: The Buffet (1996) for Ultimate Pictures and the Metro feature releases Sin Asylum (1994), Dirty Western 2: Smokin’ Guns (1994), Flesh For Fantasy (1995) and The Ultimate Fantasy (1995). Whilst discussing these early years during her June 2014 Men’s Mag Daily interview, Lisa explained that;
“For the first part I was incredibly young. We also aren’t as advanced as we are now. We didn’t have the internet. We didn’t have the style of scenes that we do now. Back then if you were a contract star you did a very limited number of movies and you were very limited in the types of scenes you did. They wanted to be able to sell it to cable so that’s why they did that. In this business a lot of the girls just come and go but I wanted to stay and that’s why it was so important that I brand myself. When I came back we had the internet and there were all these niche markets. So many things are a distinct market now like big boobs, big butts, MILF, and so many more. There are so many things you can do so you can cater to a lot of different audiences. You can kind of span across so many different things all over the world. If you’re lucky enough to have a big butt and big boobs which I do then you’re hitting all these different markets. I’m able to do so much but usually if I don’t do it in my personal life first then I won’t do it on camera. There are some things that I’ve done on camera for the first time just because my fans have wanted me to do it…
Back then it was kind of like being in a garage band. You might have a small following but not everybody knew who you were. We were on VHS so we didn’t have that reach we have now where we’re on everybody’s computer. In the early 1990’s people didn’t want to be seen buying porn in a store. There was a good chance they wouldn’t even recognize you because they put so much make-up on us in the 1990’s”.
In 1997 Lisa decided to retire from shooting hardcore sex scenes due to an AIDs scare within the adult film industry. Lisa proceeded to spend the next seven years working as a stripper and it was during this time that Lisa met and married a club bouncer when she was 28 years old. Lisa also owned and managed her own day spa for several years during her adult film industry hiatus. Lisa discussed these in-between years during her October 2015 Fox Sports interview, revealing how;
“For a while it was amazing…I stopped dancing and opened a spa in Huntington Beach (Calif.) and tried to just live a normal life. For him that was it. On the road we were taking girls back to our room and having a wild time, and he just couldn’t take it”.
Following her divorce, Lisa Ann decided to make her triumphant return to the adult film industry in 2005 when she was asked to shoot a boy/girl sex scene that was produced by Suze Randall. Lisa marked the beginning of her comeback career with this boy/girl sex scene with Christian XXX that was filmed for the Suze Randall and Pure Play Media porn production Bra Bustin’ And Deep Thrustin’ (2006).

Throughout her prolific porn star career Lisa has also established herself as one of the most popular MILF stars in the industry. Among Lisa’s impressive collection of MILF web clips and cougar themed DVD feature releases include such best-selling DVD titles as MILF Wars: Julia Ann vs. Lisa Ann (2009) for 3rd Degree, Superstar Showdown 5: Lisa Ann vs. Francesca Le (2011) for Vouyer Media and Lisa Ann vs. Julia Ann (2012) for Jules Jordan Video. We also recommend checking out Lisa’s sizzling scenes in the X Digital Media titles Lisa Ann Lesbian MILF Adventures: Mommy Needs Pussy Too (2012) and Lisa Ann: Big Tit MILFs Crave Black Cock (2012), Majestic MILFs (2014) for Wicked Pictures as well as MILF Wars: Lisa Ann vs. Nikki Benz (2015) for 3rd Degree, Pure MILF 11 (2016) for Pure Passion and My Friend’s Hot Mom Volume 57 (2017) for Naughty America. Lisa Ann loves shooting these types of MILF themed porn productions and enthusiastically commented during her January 2014 VICE interview that;
“I love shooting MILF – it’s fun. We do a nicer scene than the stuff some of the younger girls are still having to do. Your scene is more aggressive when you’re younger, and it just doesn’t make any sense for an 18-year-old boy to be super-aggressive with a 41-year-old girl. I get to be the aggressor. It’s still a comforting thing for me because I’m in control of the scene. I like where it goes and I like the intimidation factor a little bit. I think it’s cute”.
Kendra Lust and Lisa Ann at Naughty America
Over the course of her phenomenal porn star career Lisa Ann has filmed more than 500 solo, girl/girl, boy/girl, group, POV and fetish porn sex scenes that have been featured within a broad spectrum of award-winning DVD titles and web series.

Never one to rest on her laurels, Lisa Ann continued to share some thrilling three-ways with Francesca Le and Mick Blue in the 3rd Degree DVD titles Dreamgirlz 2 (2009) and Big Boob Addicts (2011), and she has also filmed a kinky three-way with fellow MILF star Kendra Lust and Bill Bailey that was featured in the Naughty America DVD compilation title 2 Chicks Same Time 13 (2013). Fans of Lisa Ann will also not want to miss out on viewing her fantastic three-way with Ava Addams and Ramon Nomar in MILF Revolution 2 (2014), her saucy sex scenes with Allie Haze, Keisha Grey, Lola Foxx and Cassidy Klein in Hands-On Mom (2015) for Girlsway and her Big Tit Superstars hardcore sex scenes with Mr Pete that were distributed via the fetish porn network Kink.com in September 2016. At this stage of her porn star career Lisa Ann has the ability to pick and choose the sex scenes that she wants to shoot; a practice which she loves! As Lisa Ann herself stated within her June 2014 Men’s Mag Daily interview;
“I love it more now that I don’t shoot as many scenes so I get to be choosier and work with the companies I know that are really systematic and organized. I also have my own production company which is Lisa Ann productions and I do all the content on my website. I kind of get to control what’s going on and make sure everything is running smoothly because when I was really grinding and doing a lot of scenes I loved to work with people like that. I liked when everybody was on time and everything was organized. I don’t have time to sit around all day with people doing drugs or drinking on set. That’s what you do on your own time not when you’re working. When you first start you work for everybody and you work through a lot of shit in this business. Even at strip clubs, there are strip clubs where you’re praying that you save enough money so that you don’t ever have to work for them again. Then there are some who you can’t wait to work for again”.

Lisa Ann : Sarah Palin Porn Parodies
Out of all of her fantastic porn productions, Lisa Ann is probably best known for her saucy sex scenes wherein she starred as ‘Serra Paylin’; a parody of the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. Lisa played Serra Paylin in a string of successful Hustler Video parody releases starting with Who’s Nailin Paylin? Adventures Of A Hockey MILF (2008) that was first released on Election Day 2008 and which also starred Nina Hartley, Holly West, Jada Fire and Sindee Jennings. Lisa Ann’s Sarah Palin inspired porn parody was a smash hit among fans and film critics. In fact, this political porn parody was so popular that Hustler even created a mask of Lisa Ann as Serra Paylin for Halloween in 2009! Talking about shooting her first ever sex scenes as Serra Paylin during her October 2008 Orange County Register interview, Lisa Ann enthusiastically stated that;
“This could be the most fun I’ve ever had on set, and I know for me, this will be kind of a little history moment for my career…I wear a suit pretty much to the office, so even my own talent comes in and says, ‘Oh my gosh, you look so much like Sarah Palin’…it’s fun to do something so edgy and put it out there…Those same people who aren’t going to appreciate this movie, though, are probably not going to appreciate ‘Dirty Over 30’ or any of my other titles…
I love working for Larry Flynt on this, too…Remember, what politics in general, and what people have done to Larry in the past … Larry has gone through so much to protect our freedom of speech…I wouldn’t do this for anybody but Larry Flynt. I told my friends, ‘If I go to jail over this, Larry’s getting me out”.

Getting Levi’s Johnson also receiving several “Best Director” and “Best Box Cover” nominations at the 2011 Grabby Awards. In addition to these spectacular DVD feature release performances, Sarah has resumed her role as Serra Paylin for the Eminem music video “We Made You” and has performed several saucy stripping performances as Serra Paylin within gentlemen’s clubs across the United States!
In addition to her immensely popular political porn productions, Lisa has starred in several best-selling porn parodies and comedy DVD titles. Fans will not want to miss out on viewing Lisa’s saucy sex scenes with James Deen and Tommy Gunn in the New Sensations porn parody 30 Rock: A XXX Parody (2009), her fantastic group sex scenes with Kristina Rose, Anthony Rosano, James Deen, Mark Wood and Mick Blue in the Official Jersey Shore Parody (2010) for Zero Tolerance that was nominated for “Best Parody: Comedy” at the 2010 AVN Awards and her raunchy group sex scenes with Diamond Foxxx, Nikki Benz and Ben English in Flygirls (2009) for Digital Playground that was nominated for “Best Release” at the 2010 XRCO Awards and “Best Comedy” at the 2011 AVN Awards.

Ever the humble hottie, Lisa Ann has always been surprised by her adult film industry successes and has expressed within her January 2014 VICE interview that;
“It’s interesting – I’m surprised at my staying power and I’m impressed by the consistency from me. When you get in an up-swing in a career you’re always looking at it like, ‘Okay, this could also down-swing.’ But the momentum has been so consistent and so fun. People often walk up to me and ask for photos, but I think, ‘It’s just me!’…I look at other girls when they’re doing scenes and think ‘Wow, you’re so much better at this than me.’ I don’t know why people like me so much. I’m not that wild, compared to what I see other girls do. I look at myself and think, ‘Wow, you’re kinda boring’”.

Lisa Ann : Directorial Debut (2009 – present)
In December 2014 Lisa announced that she would be officially retiring from performing in pornographic productions and she underwent a breast reduction procedure shortly after declaring her retirement. Despite officially retiring as a porn actress, Lisa Ann remains a multi-talented adult film producer, director, webcam model and makeup artist. In fact, Lisa Ann made her directorial debut in 2009 with the Justin Slayer International fetish porn production Lisa Ann’s Hung XXX (2009) within which she also shared a sultry sex scene with C.J. Wright.
Lisa Ann has also directed several sizzling Brand Danger sex scenes such as Awesome Aryana (2011) that she filmed with Aryana Star, her Breakfast Nookie (2011) hardcore sex scenes with Patrick J.

During this time Lisa teamed up with Zero Tolerance in order to co-direct the lesbian-themed DVD feature release Bush Bangers (2011) also starring Francesca Le, Raylene, Sasha Grey, Lexi Belle, Gianna Michaels, Charley Chase, Bobbi Starr, Renae Cruz and Kristina Rose.
In 2013 Lisa founded her very own pornographic production company, Lisa Ann Productions, and she signed an exclusive distribution deal with Jules Jordan Video. In this manner, Lisa released the best-selling porn production MILF Revolution 1 (2013) that won “Best MILF Release” at the 2014 AVN Awards and which also earned Lisa a notable “Best Director: Non Feature” nomination.

Lisa Ann : Adult Film Industry Role Model & Porn Stars Boot Camp
Throughout her adult film career Lisa Ann has served as an influential role model for her fellow female performers. In fact, between September 2005 and February 2006 Lisa even worked as a talent agent for the exclusive adult film talent agency LA Direct Models. Whilst working for LA Direct Models, Lisa started to notice that there was a significant lack of representation within the adult entertainment industry for highly talented MILF performers aged 30 years or older. To rectify this issue, Lisa launched her own adult film talent agency, Clear Talent Management, in November 2006 which has since been rebranded as Lisa Ann’s Talent Management. In 2007 Lisa merged her adult film talent agency with Adam Glasser’s Lighthouse Agency.
Although Lisa’s adult film talent agency closed in July 2010, Lisa has remained an ardent advocate for her fellow female performers through her work with the Free Speech Coalition (FSC). In her spare time Lisa also continues to mentor approximately 10 to 15 female performers; a practice which she has undertaken since 2005. Talking about her ongoing mentoring roles and consulting practices during an August 2014 AVN interview, Lisa explained how;
“It’s very unorganized but it’s very present…We get so many new girls in the business and we love to shoot them because they’re new girls—there’s that novelty. But we don’t care for their future, their career. And then when they’re not new girls anymore and no one’s shooting them, then they need to be good performers”.

Lisa has been happy to discuss her personal adult film industry trials and tribulations in order to advise and support her fellow female performers. For instance, in August 2014 Lisa reached out to the ‘Duke University Porn Star’ Belle Knox after she became aware of the negative reception that Belle was receiving in the press for her adult film industry career choices. As Lisa herself stated during an in-depth August 2014 AVN interview;
“I would hear people on set and think, ‘Why does everybody hate her so much? I mean, I know people hate me … we should hang out together’… I was already 35 years old, so it was awesome. I was ready for it. I was so happy in what I was doing that it was just a bonus … my family was already completely aware of what I was doing..At the time she was just 18—not just new to this business, but also a new student at a new school. I reached out to Lainie and asked, ‘How’s she doing?’ That’s intense. And I don’t know how someone can handle it at that age because I just managed to understand it at my age. There were people who stepped out of my life because it was too much limelight for them and I understand that. You’re just being pushed and pulled, and you have this fear that it’s going to end, so you’re running on empty at all times because you think your luck is gonna run out. So I’m trying to capture that with her, show her all the opportunities open to her in this business and see how far she wants to take it from there. I’m just here to be a guide and give her any information she might want to have and then she can take it from there”.
In this manner, Lisa took Belle Knox under her wing and showcased her within one of her Lisa Ann Productions DVD feature releases; School Of MILF 2: The Education Of Belle Knox (2014). Belle has been extremely appreciative of Lisa Ann’s ongoing support and guidance and ardently enthused within this August 2014 AVN interview how working with Lisa has helped her to hone her performance techniques;
“I also learned a lot about posing, just by watching Lisa when she was doing her poses, and also watching Nina do her posing. I learned a lot about posture and how to look in front of the camera. Because when you’re the new girl nobody really sits you down and says, ‘You’re doing this wrong.’ … Lisa did that this week for me”.
Lisa has always been candidly honest when it comes to imparting words of wisdom to aspiring female performers who may be considering working within the adult entertainment industry. As Lisa aptly put it during her August 2012 Tampa Bay Times interview;
“Have you ever seen the movie Eat, Pray, Love? Remember the scene in the beginning where Julia Roberts is like, “Having a baby is like getting a tattoo on your face”? I say that about porn. Porn is like getting a tattoo on your face. You better be ready to own up to it”.
Consequently, in December 2014 Lisa launched her own consultancy firm and announced her plans to create her very own Porn Stars Boot Camp mentorship program. During her January 2015 CNBC interview Lisa Ann has described her Porn Star Boot Camp as;
“‘a mentorship program’ for those just entering the business, with advice on everything from what to expect on set to managing life skills, such as paying taxes and effective self-promotion techniques…They will only take advice from you if they don’t feel like they’re competing with you”.

Lisa Ann : Presenting Roles & Radio Talk Show Host
Ever since she filmed her first ever sex scenes in 1994, Lisa Ann has always been a natural born performer and presenter. As a result, it was no surprise when Lisa was invited to host the prestigious XRCO Awards in 2010. Lisa has continued to host several fan-favourite radio talk shows throughout her adult film career including Stripper Town for Sirius XM in 2013. Lisa Ann’s keen interest in fantasy football has also resulted in her appearing as a guest on numerous Sirius XM radio talk shows and sports podcasts such as Fox Sports, MMA Mania and Total Pro Sports but to name a few. Pursuing her passion for sports has always been an integral part of Lisa Ann’s long term career aspirations. After all, as Lisa Ann herself revealed within her January 2015 CNBC interview;
“In 2005, when I returned back to the business, I wrote myself a 10-year plan…Between endorsements from products, my website and other businesses, I’ve realized my goals at a much faster pace than I expected…When I reached that goal, I told myself it’s time to start working on the next passion—for sports”.
As matters stand, Lisa continues to host her weekly Lisa Ann Does Fantasy radio talk show with Adam Ronis on Monday nights as well as appearing on The Morning Men radio talk show on Thursday mornings; both of which are broadcast via Sirius XM Radio. Lisa loves hosting Lisa Ann Does Fantasy and has enthusiastically stated during her August 2014 AVN interview with Belle Knox that presenting her own fantasy football radio talk show feels like a dream come true;
“I went there every month harassing them…Now, it’s a dream come true…I’m getting to go to a ton of games; I get to meet athletes; I get to go to training camps. … And it’s gotten me viewed on a different level, which is pretty cool.” Now, fans at strip clubs are asking her advice on fantasy teams. “I’ve had guys buy dances just to get me to set their line-up…
Getting a mainstream sports show was “something everyone told me I was never going to get. With [Belle] going to college, everyone is going to tell her, oh, you’re never going to be anything because you did porn. I’m showing her, no, I’m in the regular sports world. I know how to dress when I go to those games, I know how to conduct myself. I don’t act like a porn star. I don’t swear. I conduct myself. She’s the same. She can become a lawyer and do entertainment law. Rappers will go to her—anyone who has a diverse life will say, ‘She paid her way through college doing porn—I’m going to come to this girl.’ So it’s no longer what other people think …we can do what we want”.

In addition to her fantasy football radio talk show, Lisa has conducted interviews for numerous mainstream media publications, fan-favourite podcasts and popular TV programmes. Some of Lisa Ann’s most notable mainstream media appearances include her November 2008 Entertainment Tonight interview whereupon she promoted the commercial release of Who’s Nailin’ Paylin?, her participation in Deborah Anderson’s 2013 Aroused adult film industry documentary, her appearance in the Hollywood Undead music video “Dead Bite”, her voiceover work as “Prostitute #2” for the smash-hit video game Grand Theft Auto V that was first released in September 2013, and her frequent features on The Howard Stern Show. Lisa has developed a close affinity with The Howard Stern Show and she has stated within an August 2013 XBIZ News interview that;
“My history with ‘The Howard Stern Show’ goes back to my late teens, when he had a show on WOR-TV in Secaucus, N.J. I was a ‘Snapple Girl’ for a live commercial read on his show…I came back later as a pretty well-known porn star; I guess you could say, ‘I came a long way, baby!’ Now I’m going back to make an announcement that for me is going to be life changing. There is nowhere I would rather say it first, than on ‘The Howard Stern Show’”.
In addition to these radio talk show and television appearances Lisa Ann has also been interviewed by GQ magazine, The Daily Dot, Cosmopolitan magazine, Vlad TV, the Independent, the Guardian, Bro Bible, Complex magazine, Olisa.tv, What The Flop, Morning Neurosis, the Houston Press, the New York Post, News.com and Mel Magazine among many others. Lisa has even contributed to sexual advice columns for Crave Online and in December 2015 she published her tell-all memoirs; The Life. Although Lisa Ann has officially retired from the adult entertainment industry, she has created an outstanding legacy that will stand the test of time. Lisa Ann has often stated within her previous interviews that;
“Porn is never going to go anywhere. People love their porn! I can watch a really bad movie that isn’t porn, and I’ll tell my friends, “This movie would be great as a porn.” You watch a chick flick and there are loads of different scenarios that don’t make any sense, but I make them make sense by saying, “After this scene, she’d leave the coffee shop and have sex with all the guys.” Movies are much more fun to watch that way”.
