I gotta do that.' When I got here, I threw the guys in there too. What the hell."

With 50 scenes to her credit, Kiss has covered a lot of territory: from all-girl movies such as Accidentally Lesbian 3 (Forbidden Fruits Films/Exile) and Mother-Daughter Exchange Club 43 (Girlfriends Films) to boy/girl scenes in Sweet Petite 3 (Jules Jordan Video) and Beautiful New Faces 7 (Girlfriends Films).

Keiran Lee

Performer

Love him or hate him, Keiran Lee is one of the hardest working studs in porn. With more than  two thousand scenes under his belt, it's safe to assume that if you've watched porn, you've watched Mr. Lee. His British mug has shown up everywhere from billboards to day time television, and his brand is so profitable that Brazzers has taken out a 1 million dollar insurance package on that notorious cock of his. Suffice it to say, Keiran's a pretty big deal. 

But he wasn't always the porn king pin he is today. At 20, Mr. Lee was a humble railway worker, scrubbing graffiti off the side of box cars or just slacking off in the caboose. It looked like this was it for him, until a friend changed his life forever. While banging a broad he met at the club, Keiran was unaware that his dirty deed was being caught on camera, and that the tape would soon find its way to the internet. At first he was furious, but when he received a call from a top XXX director, this bloke from Derby changed his tone. 

These days he's living the dream, fucking a fresh face or a hot MILF almost every day! Any man with a brain in his head would kill for just one day in Keiran's shoes, but sorry gents, this British hunk wouldn't trade his good fortune for the world. He's already been nominated for a bunch of AVNs, married one hottest ladies in Porn....Kirsten Price , and made his directorial debut on Digital Playground. Showing no signs of slowing down, Keiran is at the top of his game.

Natalie Mars

Performer

I started out posting lewd content online just for fun and gained a level of notoriety for the black hole like nature of my ass. Eventually I got into camming, before breaking into the pro scene in early 2015.

 
My favorite thing about doing porn is meeting hot, kinky people and then getting to have sex with them. I also love the feedback I get from fans! Knowing I'm helping people get off is an amazing feeling.
 
I take too many selfies.
