Porno Stars/Porno Directors/Producers/Sex Celebs

*note nearly all porn stars use fake names purposely to hide behind anonymity so in most cases it's next to impossible to find their real names or anything relating to their actual ethnicities and race. It's well-known that the overwhelming majority of creators, producers, and distributors of pornography are Jewish, something porn peddler Luke Ford (himself Jewish) brags about on his website It also seems that most male performers appear Jewish but being there's not very many men in the industry it's not hard to figure out who's who. Females on the other hand are so numerous that it's next to impossible to figure out how many are Jewish or not though of the few I've seen many, possibly most have Semitic features. Keep in mind many, possibly most female performers purposely hide behind wigs, heavy make-up, and for the most successful starlets, plastic and cosmetic surgery. The following listed below are just those that have been open about being Jewish.

Buck Adams (brother of Amber Lynn)
