Name : Honey Gold
Date of Birth : July 9th, 1993
Hometown : California (US)
Measurements : 32B – 25 – 34
Height : 5’4 (1.62m)
Hair Colour : Black
Eye Colour : Brown
Tattoos : Honey has an amazing collection of tattoos including a baby owl on her left shoulder, a crescent moon above her right breast, a feather on the outside of her left forearm, a dream catcher on the inside of her right forearm, a lotus medallion on her right shoulder, a floral design around the back of her neck and a compass rose on her right forearm but to name a few!
Honey’s favourite tattoo is a geometric wolf on her left hand and she has talked about getting a steaming bowl of rice with chopsticks tattoo to celebrate her great grandmother who is from Canton, China. Talking about the origins of some of her intriguing body art in a September 2017 AVN Magazine interview, Honey revealed how;
“Have you heard about how little baby owls will fall out of the nest or get kicked out of the nest? And they either survive or die? That’s what happens to little baby owls…And I got this [baby owl on shoulder] because an owl doesn’t only represent wisdom but the fact that I kind of relate to the whole concept of being kicked out of the nest or falling out of the nest in regards to my family. And I got this as a reminder to constantly push myself and fight to survive…
Her first tattoo, on her right forearm, is a ‘compass rose’ because Gold believes ‘for some reason I feel like I never know where I’m going but I always end up right where I’m supposed to be’…
Meanwhile, the lotus medallion on Gold’s right shoulder is also special to her…’Everyone knows that a lotus grows in mud; it doesn’t grow in beautiful circumstances and this relates a lot to my past because I didn’t have the best upbringing but I feel I’m still able to thrive into something beautiful despite my background and my circumstances'”.
Piercings : Hoop through nose and navel
Shoe Size : Women’s 7.5 (US)
Pets : 2 dogs and a cat. Honey has commented in her March 2017 Adult DVD Talk interview that; “I have an all-black Pug and a new baby brindle Pit. She doesn’t actually look like a Pit, she’s so pretty. I have a cat too but my cat’s getting old and he’s getting kind of grouchy. I just feed him, pet him now and then but I keep my distance because I never know when he’s in a bad mood”.
Years Active : 2017 – present
Number of Scenes : 40+
Even though she has only been performing in porn for a year, rapidly rising starlet Honey Gold has already amassed a devoted global fan following due to her performances in It’s My First Time 5, Sacrosanct and Taste Of Honey. Recently named “Best New Starlet” at the 2018 XBIZ Awards, Honey is definitely one to watch throughout 2018 and beyond!
Hailing from San Francisco, Honey has mixed Cherokee, Chinese, Irish, Mongolian and African American heritage. Honey comes from a very religious family and she was actually homeschooled for many years. Talking about her upbringing in her March 2017 Adult DVD Talk interview, Honey mentioned that;
“Originally, I am from up north. I moved around to different areas. I was in Oakland, San Francisco, I spent a lot of time there. As far as school goes, I went to a public school for a couple years, then a private school. Then, from 3rd grade on, I was homeschooled through middle school and high school. Actually, I say I came from a very sheltered but not sheltered environment. Going into the typical middle school and high school, I was actually able to spend time in another country for various reasons. I got to do things that other people my age didn’t get the opportunity to do. But, unfortunately, there was a bit of sheltering that happened because of the homeschooling. It was actually a Christian homeschool program. That’s a very random fact about me. My parents are still married and they both are Christian. My father and mother are both heavily involved in the church. I come from a very hardcore Christian background. I’m starting to learn that people kind of expect that. (laughs) I was heavily involved in the Church myself prior to transitioning into porn. (laughs) It was just my family and I. I have 3 other siblings, I have an older brother, a younger sister and a younger brother who all know that I’m in porn”.
Honey left home just before she turned 19 and it was during this time that she lost her virginity. As Honey explained in her March 2017 Adult DVD Talk interview;
“Coming from a Christian background, you have that ‘don’t have sex before marriage’ thing. So I was waiting until marriage and when I left home, I got to the point where I got sick of waiting. I wasn’t meeting anyone, I wasn’t dating. In fact, I don’t understand the whole concept of dating, going out thing worked. Apparently, the way I saw it, dating is when you were talking to people, getting to know them and you could “date” multiple people. That’s apparently not how everything works. So not understanding any of that, I decided I just wanted to get fucked. I was thinking about banging the guy at my local Walgreen’s or one of my co-workers at Chick-Fil-A. It ended up being the co-worker. He’s my ex now so I got lucky. (laughs)”.
After leaving home Honey held a series of 9 to 5 jobs before she discovered her porn star potential. From working in graphic design and being an apprentice for a draftswoman, to various coding, medical billing, dispensary, architecture and fast food jobs; you name it, Honey’s worked there! Unfulfilled by these jobs, Honey started working as a freelance model and discovered how empowering posing for erotic photography could be. Through her modelling work and the connections of her boyfriend, Honey met several adult film industry professionals who paved the way for her to shoot her first ever sex scenes for Burning Angel in early 2017. As Honey puts it in her own words;
“I was in graphic design, I was an apprentice for a draftswoman. I was in architecture, I was in medical billing, I did coding, I worked at a dispensary. I worked in fast food like Chick-Fil-A here in LA. I worked at a goat cheese place which I absolutely hate now because I got sexually harassed multiple times there….
I’ve had a very adventurous life and I’ve done a lot more things than most individuals my age. So, seeing that I’ve held a lot of professional jobs, a lot of unprofessional jobs, I just decided that I wanted to do something different and I just got tired of being bullied in the workplace. Either I was too black, too Asian, too young, too many tattoos…people always found a reason to overwork me and make sure I was underpaid because of my looks or my personality. It just got to the point where I was fed up with my life and I decided that I wanted to go into freelance modelling…
It was through doing erotic photography that I decided that this was what made me feel alive. I felt liberated doing that. It went from doing erotic photography to highly sexual photos that would be shipped out to high paying bidders that were outside the United States. I enjoyed how empowering it felt to the point where I thought I could take it to another level. When I met my current boyfriend, who is in the industry, he exposed me to a lot of other porn stars in the industry, the inner workings of everything and how it worked. Then I decided that, fuck, I wanted to do that. These people seemed happy, they are having a lot of fun and I had yet to explore my sexuality. This would be a really great place for me to explore my sexuality and cure this ridiculous sexual appetite that I have. (laughs)”.
Honey Gold : Adult Film Career
Honey filmed her first ever sex scenes with Small Hands in February 2017 that were showcased in the Burning Angel DVD It’s My First Time 5 (2017). Honey’s porn debut was an instant hit that was nominated for “Best Amateur/Pro-Am Movie” at the 2018 AVN Awards and “Pro-Am Release of the Year” at the 2018 XBIZ Awards. Honey was thrilled to shoot her adult film industry debut for Burning Angel and ardently enthused in a February 2017 AVN press release how;
“Before I even decided to get into adult, BurningAngel was a company I really wanted to shoot for, because I am a huge fan of Joanna. So to actually be able to do my first scene with her company was amazing. For me, I considered it one of the greatest accomplishments of my life. The experience was amazing, she’s such a kind woman, and she just walked me through it every step of the way. Everything I hoped for with the adult industry was just confirmed when I shot for her. If I could repeat that whole experience, I would. I would love to relive that experience”.
Joanna had similarly high praise for Honey and enthusiastically stated within this AVN press release that;
“I know Honey Gold will go far in this industry…She’s so horny and beautiful. Her scene was incredible. It didn’t feel like a first at all—she was totally meant for porn”.
Honey has since starred in a steady stream of best-selling Burning Angel DVDs including Leather And Latex (2017) and My Stepsister And I Share Cock (2017) that was nominated for “Taboo Release of the Year” at the 2018 XBIZ Awards. Wondering how Honey chose her porn star stage name? Well, Honey revealed in her March 2017 Adult DVD Talk interview that;
“There are two parts to this. The first time, I had this name in this head. Christina Perri has this song “Burning Gold”. One of my ex’s played this song for me when I was going through a really hard time. It finally hit home because if you listen to the lyrics and watch the music video, that is basically me in a nutshell. There is so much I wanted to do and I felt like I was trapped until “Burning Gold” got stuck in my head. I played it over and over again, I fucking loved it. So “Burning Gold” got branded in my brain. Then, my Instagram followers were always commenting on how beautiful my skin tone was, my ex always commented on my skin tone and when someone would try to describe it, it’s like a yellowish, brown, golden…like honey. People would struggle to describe my skin tone. I personally think I am Idaho Potato Brown. (laughs) After a while, people would tell me my skin was like honey because it was so rich with a golden undertone. So I was sitting with Donny and we had to come up with a stage name. This wasn’t even for porn, this was just for an Instagram name. And I came up with some weird stuff. I came up with different names until I finally just came up with Honey and Gold. Honey Gold. I thought that was stupid. Honey Gold, what the hell is that. And then I started googling it and I saw it was actually a color. It happened to be an apple. I thought Skin Diamond was different. She has a very unique stage name and it was probably weird when people first started saying it. Skin Diamond. What the hell is a Skin Diamond? But over time, people would accept it and get into it. So I haven’t heard of Honey Gold. I love it because it matches my skin tone. I want it. So that’s the weird way of how I came up with Honey Gold”.
Upon making her adult film industry debut Honey was signed with Mark Spiegler’s exclusive adult film talent agency. Honey carried out plenty of research before contacting Mark Spiegler and conveyed in her March 2017 Adult DVD Talk interview how;
“I heard about different agencies and I did a lot of research and I read a lot of research. I really did a lot of research on Skin Diamond and Asa Akira in particular. I made sure I saw a therapist, I made sure I was emotionally stable and, after doing my research, watching movies, looking at the pros and cons AND looking up agencies, I decided I was going to contact Mark Spiegler, who is now my agent. Most people ask, how did I find him? Well, after doing research, and reading about Asa and Skin, I thought Mark was the way to go and googled him. I contacted him and he knew, after our conversation, he knew that I had not released a single scene and was a complete virgin to the porn industry. I don’t really know what he saw in me but he gave me an opportunity of a lifetime. He saw something in me and believed in me. He’s been walking me through everything step-by-step which still, right now, blows my mind. For all he could have known, I could have been some lame that wanted to contact him. I don’t know what it is that he saw but there’s not a day that goes by that I’m not thankful for it”.
As a ‘Spiegler Girl’ Honey quickly began to collaborate with prominent porn directors such as Axel Braun. We recommend checking out Honey’s sizzling scenes in the Wicked Picture DVDs Axel Braun’s Inked 3 (2017) featuring Draven Star, Amber Ivy, Leigh Raven and Rizzo Ford, Axel Braun’s Specs Appeal 2 (2017) and Axel Braun’s Short Hair Don’t Care (2018) also starring Riley Nixon, Nikki Hearts, Aaliyah Hadid and Ava Little.
During this time Honey was featured in the Elegant Angel DVD Swimsuit Calendar Girls 2017 alongside Jill Kassidy, Alexis Monroe and Karlee Grey, she starred alongside Prince Yahshua in The Black Out (2017) which was nominated for “Best Ethnic Movie” at the 2018 AVN Awards and she filmed an epic group sex scene with Jessica Drake, Morgan Lee, Eric Masterson and Isiah Maxwell that was featured in the Wicked Pictures feature release An Inconvenient Mistress (2017) which was nominated for “Best Action/Thriller” at the 2018 AVN Awards and “Feature Movie of the Year” at the 2018 XBIZ Awards.
But wait, it gets even better! In November 2017 Honey was featured within her very own signature showcase; Taste Of Honey (2017). Directed by Jonni Darkko for Evil Angel, Taste Of Honey showcased Honey in four fantastic sex scenes with Violet Starr, Justin Hunt, Jonni Darkko and Markus Dupree, one of which was Honey’s first ever double vag scene! Jonni Darkko enjoyed collaborating with Honey and highlighted via an October 2017 AVN press release how;
“When I met Honey, I knew something was special about her…She gives amazing performances, and it inspired me to do a showcase on her. I really wanted to give the fans a great taste of Honey—she’s tasty sweet!…Honey trying double vag for the first time was fun to watch…I think her fans will love it. The energy level is really something—she gives 120 percent…Honey also does a super-high-energy, super-connected scene with Violet Starr”.
Honey’s star showcase also earned her a glowing endorsement from prominent porn critic J.W. Sharp who commented in his December 2017 XCritic film review that;
“I am so happy for Honey Gold and her meteoric rise in the industry. She seems to have come out of nowhere and in just a few short months has become one of the most in demand performers today, turning up in title after title, and doing great quality work. Her beauty and amazing screen presence, along with her fantastic inhibition and willingness to try anything for the sake of performing, definitely makes her a force to reckon with. I’m not ashamed to say my favorite parts of DVD were the modelling sequences before each scene, simply because she’s so photogenic and the camera absolutely loves her. The rest of it is just great, beautifully photographed gravy from a true powerhouse. Jonni Darkko did a great job with this wonderful showcase DVD, and I Highly Recommend picking it up”.
In addition to her hot hardcore productions Honey is also a phenomenal girl/girl performer. Fans of Honey’s lusty lesbian collaborations will love viewing her saucy scenes with Nikki Hearts in the Filly Films DVD Chopper Whores (2017), her sultry shoot with Megan Rain in Women Seeking Women 143 (2017) for Girlfriends Films and her raunchy session with Elsa Jean in Sexy On Set (2018) for Adam & Eve. One thing’s for sure; Honey loves her work! After all, as Honey advocated in her March 2017 Adult DVD Talk interview;
“I don’t have a guilty conscience at all and it’s not weird at all for me. It’s probably the most fun I’ve ever had in my life. (laughs) I fucking love what I do. I’m genuinely passionate about it. I don’t need to smoke weed, I don’t need to take anything, I’m good to go on set because I genuinely love fucking and that’s why I’m having so much fun. It’s exciting to me”.
One of Honey’s most popular porn productions to date has been Sacrosanct. Directed by Kayden Kross for Trenchcoatx, this sensational four-part series was a critical and commercial success that won “Best Cinematography”, “Best Anthology Movie” and “Best Director: Non-Feature” at the 2018 AVN Awards as well as earning Honey a “Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene” nomination for her sultry shoot with Mick Blue. Kayden loved collaborating with Honey on this pioneering porn production and conveyed in a June 2017 AVN interview how;
“Honey Gold is just amazing to watch…She has that enthusiasm and relentless energy that shines on screen. Plus she’s absolutely gorgeous. I’ve never been more excited about a project. Each of the scenes in Sacrosanct are made to be dark and deeply personal. Katrina Jade was a perfect choice, and now Honey Gold has been a perfect choice. Both women are so willing to be raw on film…Making Sacrosanct was not only an adventure, but I got to explore my own erotic daydreams…I’m just grateful that people appreciate my work with Trenchcoatx and continue to support my dirty thoughts so I can keep making these movies”.
Want to know the most impressive part? In addition to receiving these notable nominations Honey was named “Best New Starlet” at the 2018 XBIZ Awards! Honey was thrilled to win this coveted title and sincerely conveyed in her awards speech how;
“I wasn’t expecting this…My entire life I’ve done nothing but fight and struggle and face rejection. And when I got into this industry, I lost family. I lost friends…I want to thank each and every one of you I’ve worked with and those who have given me words of encouragement. I am a testament that your kindness has gone a long way. I’ve had good days and God knows I’ve had bad days. The encouragement I’ve received from so many of you has kept me going. I have found my passion and it is an honor to stand here among all my peers and accept this, because for once in my life I actually belong somewhere”.

When she hasn’t been starring in these critically acclaimed porn productions, Honey has been shooting some kinky online content for the Cherry Pimps network. As matters stand, Honey has filmed some lusty live shoots with Small Hands and Tony Martinez that were broadcast live via Streamate as part of the Cherry Pimps’ raunchy Wild On Cam channel.
The best part? These kinky live shows proved so popular that Honey was actually named as Cherry Pimps’ “Cherry of the Month” for November 2017. Honey has enjoyed experimenting with this kinky live content and mentioned in an AVN press release that;
“It is such an honor to be named Cherry of the Month. Prior to this happening I would always scroll through the Cherry Pimps Instagram or Twitter dreaming that one day maybe I would be considered as a COTM. To me, it’s a huge honor because Cherry Pimps is hands down one of my favorite companies to work for, and it was a huge dream of mine to be a COTM…The entire experience so far has surpassed any expectations I had and completely blew me away. Working with Dean is something I will take to my grave. Dean is incredibly patient, creative, and genuinely cares about what he does. My experience working with him has helped me gain a whole new level of confidence I never thought I had…
It was an absolute pleasure working with Small Hands for the second time. When I made my debut into the adult industry, he was the male talent that took my porn virginity! I am grateful that Cherry Pimps gave us the opportunity to reunite and bang out (literally) an amazing scene for you guys. The energy, chemistry, and overall flow of the scene is mind-blowing and I know that you guys will enjoy our scene as much as we enjoyed making it”.
Currently represented by OC Modelling, another landmark moment in Honey’s career came in December 2017 when she was named as Bang.com’s “Ambassador of the Month”. Ever eager to explore exciting new career ventures, in January 2018 Honey launched her official solo website, HoneyGoldxxx.com, in collaboration with the CrushGirls.com Network. Honey plans to share all manner of exclusive online content with her fans via her saucy solo site and has explained in a January 2018 press release;
“I’m very excited to announce that HoneyGoldxxx.com is now live!…Fans will be able to keep up with my weekly blogs, live shows, steamy scenes, and so much more. My new website allows me to interact with fans in a much more intimate way while giving them a glimpse of life beyond the adult industry…
A lot of time, energy, and sex was put into creating this site, and I couldn’t be prouder of the results…I had an amazing team behind me working with me every step of the way to make this possible. Now that I have partnered with Crush Girls, I’m looking forward to providing everyone with the content they will all love in one place”.
