Captivating cutie Kaylani Lei is one the most popular female porn stars of the past fifteen years. Despite a brief hiatus from the adult industry in 2005, Kaylani has remained a fan-favourite performer due to her sensational sex scenes in the best-selling Wicked Pictures feature releases Angel X (2003), Eye of the Beholder (2004), Operation: Desert Stormy (2007), 2040 (2009), Kaylani’s Fornic-Asian (2009), Holly…Would (2014) and Plenty To Please (2016); the list goes on!
Born in Singapore but raised in Massachusetts, Virginia, Kaylani has mixed Chinese and Filipino heritage. Talking about her Asian roots within her XCritic column interview, Kaylani has commented that;
“I am Filipino and Chinese. I get asked about my ethnicity more than anything, and I have certainly been pegged for being just about every ethnicity you can think of! It’s hilarious what people have come up with at times. I do not speak Tagalog, but that is something I would definitely like to learn eventually. And I know the majority of my Filipino fans would get a kick out of it”.
Kaylani moved around a lot during her younger years and she has lived across the US in Ohio and Maine as well as in Ireland where she spent a year competing in horse shows. Talking about her younger years in her July 2015 Fleshbot interview, Kaylani explained how;
“My family and I moved around a lot, so I was always coming in as a “new girl” and doing what I could to fit in and make friends. I was always nice to everyone, dressed in whatever was in style at that particular school, and made it a point to always make the cheerleading squad. That being said, I dated the football player mostly, or at least the guy who was into sports”.
Despite her amazing sex scenes, Kaylani had never even watched porn until she was 21 years old. Kaylani discussed her discovery of the adult film industry in her July 2015 Fleshbot interview, mentioning that;
“I never watched porn until I had just turned 21 and my boyfriend at that time was really into it. The first scene I ever saw was of Jenna Jameson masturbating. I got into it pretty shortly after that and started watching porn with him often. We then went to an adult toy store and I purchased my own first pink metallic dildo with a heart shaped head on the top. Shortly after I started doing porn scenes myself, I discovered Kobe Tai, and I became a fan of her scenes. Never met her before, though. I think she had just retired as I got in the biz. I also thought Asia Carrera and Julia Ann were great performers”.
Kaylani initially began working in the adult entertainment industry as an exotic dancer. Kaylani has performed in several prominent Las Vegas gentlemen’s clubs including the Olympic Garden. Kaylani explained within her XCritic column interview how she progressed from exotic dancing to nude modelling which ended up paving the way for her to pursue a career in the adult film industry. As Kaylani puts it in her own words;
“I started off as a dancer at a gentlemen’s club in Vegas, and I was not good at it at all. I also had a day job in retail at a department store. Someone who worked as a manager in the adult industry at the time approached me about doing some nude modelling work. The idea seemed appealing to me as I had always been comfortable being naked in front of people, so why not a camera? I went on a trip with my then-manager to Los Angeles and met up with several porn agents until finally signing with one. Immediately after that, I began working in front of the camera. It instantly felt so liberating and fun to be in front of the camera having sex. I was immediately comfortable and turned on. At that moment, I knew this was the industry for me. Everyone I met was so nice, humble, and friendly. Shortly after my first few movies and very first AVN show, about 7 months in, I was approached by Wicked to be a lead in a movie and suddenly an opportunity had occurred in which I could be a Wicked Girl. I jumped at that chance and have been a Wicked Girl since”.
Upon being asked about why she decided to pursue a career as a porn star in her July 2006 How To Be A Porn Star Blogspot interview, Kaylani has responded;
“Why porn?…It has taught me so many things about my undiscovered sexuality. I have explored so many new things in my sex life and confidence, and many many orgasms in different ways that I never had before. We do nothing that your local librarian doesn’t do, we just show it. The better question is Why not porn?”.
Kaylani Lei : Adult Film Career
Kaylani first began working in the adult film industry in 2002 and some of her earliest porn productions include Teen Tryout Auditions 19 (2002) for Devil’s Film, Teen Dreams 1 (2002) for New Sensations, Asian Fever 11 (2002) for Hustler Video and Barely 18 (2002) for Sin City.
During this time Kaylani moved to Los Angeles, California, whereupon she began to collaborate with prominent porn directors such as Michael Raven and Jonathan Morgan on several best-selling Wicked Pictures feature releases including Angel X (2003) and Wicked Auditions 2 (2003). Due to the commercial and critical success of these raunchy DVD feature releases, Kaylani was invited by Steve Orenstein to sign an exclusive performance contract with Wicked Pictures. Kaylani has often attributed her adult film industry successes to her Wicked Pictures performance contract. As Kaylani eagerly enthused within her XCritic column interview;
“I have been spoiled rotten and wouldn’t want to be performing any other way! Seriously, being with Wicked exclusively has been a wonderful career experience over these many, many years. I am so lucky to be a part of a great company that produces such an amazing body of work with some major award-winning titles. I wouldn’t even know how to be anything other than a Wicked Girl!”.
As a Wicked Pictures contract girl Kaylani began to earn leading roles in such critically acclaimed feature releases as Blue Rain (2003), Eye of the Beholder (2004), One Night In Vegas (2004), Sweatshop (2004), Between the Sheets (2005), Erotik (2005) and Curse Eternal (2005) that won “Best Release” at the 2006 XRCO Awards and which earned Kaylani a notable “Best Supporting Actress” nomination at the 2007 AVN Awards.
Performing in a steady stream of Wicked Pictures feature releases has enabled Kaylani to collaborate with some of the most popular female performers in the industry. Fans of Kaylani Lei will love watching such critically acclaimed Wicked Pictures feature releases as Never Say Never (2009) also starring Alexis Texas, Angelina Valentine, Jenna Presley and Tory Lane, Writer’s Bullpen (2009) featuring Alektra Blue and Kagney Linn Karter, Operation: Desert Stormy (2007) which enabled Kaylani to work with Stormy Daniels, Jenna Haze and Eva Angelina, Accidental Hooker (2008) starring Jessica Drake, Katsuni and Jennifer Dark, Bad Girls (2008) featuring Mikayla Mendez, Kirsten Price and Angelina Valentine and House of Wicked (2009) for which Kaylani’s group sex scene with Alektra Blue, Jessica Drake, Kirsten Price and Mikayla Mendez was nominated for “Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene” at the 2010 AVN Awards.

Kaylani has loved starring in these Wicked Pictures porn productions and sincerely expressed within her July 2015 Fleshbot interview that;
“Being with Wicked as a contract girl for most of my career was a wonderful experience. I was very much involved in choosing what I wanted to do, who I wanted to do, and how. Most of our scenes were geared towards couples, which were passionate and intense, allowing me to explore my sexual connection with my partner and just let go and enjoy it on and off camera”.
Kaylani Lei : Brief Hiatus & Adult Film Award Nominations
After several years working in the adult film industry, in August 2005 Kaylani decided to move to New Zealand with her boyfriend, rugby union halfback Byron Kelleher. After several months of living in New Zealand, Kaylani decided to move back to the US in June 2006 whereupon she resumed her adult film career. Talking about her hiatus in her July 2015 Fleshbot interview, Kaylani revealed that;
“Years ago, I left the business during my prime and given another chance, I would not have”.
Fortunately, Kaylani marked her triumphant return to porn with starring roles in several Wicked Pictures feature releases that earned her the coveted “Best Cumback” title at the 2008 XRCO Awards as well as “Porn Cumback of the Year” at the 2008 AFWG Awards and “Best Female Performer (Editor’s Choice)” at the 2008 Nightmoves Awards.

Kaylani Lei : Star Showcases & 2040 Performance
As well as landing leading roles in multiple Wicked Pictures porn productions, Kaylani has also showcased her stunning looks and raw sexual charisma within her very own Wicked Pictures star showcases! As matters stand, Kaylani has treated her fans to Kaylani Unleashed (2007) and Kaylani’s Fornic-Asian (2009) which was directed by Brad Armstrong. Kaylani has worked with Brad on numerous occasions throughout her adult film career and he praised her performance in Kaylani’s Fornic-Asian. As Brad stated within an April 2009 AVN press release;
“Kaylani always busts my balls when I make her the ‘Asian girl’ in my movies…She always says, ‘Why can’t I just be the horny chick that wants to get fucked?’ So, here she plays … an Asian madam welcoming the viewer to an Asian brothel. But, suddenly, she looks up at the camera and says, ‘Do we really have to do this again? Mr. Director, this is so old. Mr. Producer, can we do something else? It will save us a lot of money on props'”.
Kaylani loved shooting Kaylani’s Fornic-Asian and enthused within this AVN press release how;
“Instead of having it all be so serious–where we’re trying so hard with the swords and dragons and all that stuff–we have some fun with it…Fans are going to love the movie. The women are beautiful and the set designs are amazing, as they usually are with Brad…It was my first solo anal with toys; it was very exciting…It’s a very pretty scene”.
Kaylani’s Fornic-Asian was a smash-hit success which was recommended by XCritic column writer The Mooninite who stated in his July 2009 film review that;
“Brad Armstrong puts the lovely Kaylani Lei in the spotlight for Kaylani Lei’s Fornic-Asian (it’s a pun, get it?) – a nice, seven scene gonzo feature that’s linked thematically by casting only lovely ladies of eastern origin in the film. There’s no story nor is there much of a set up for each scene, but fans of foxy Asian ladies will find a lot to like about this one…
Nicely shot with good production value and a cast of truly beautiful and all natural looking Asian hotties, Fornic-Asian is pretty hot stuff…we wind up with a nice variety of scenes, each one different than the last, that nicely exploit the female cast members and play up on their nice bodies and pretty faces very effectively”.
Another defining moment in Kaylani’s adult film career came in 2009 when she starred in Brad Armstrong’s futuristic Wicked Pictures porn production 2040 (2009) alongside her friends and fellow Wicked Pictures contract girls Jessica Drake, Alektra Blue, Kirsten Price and Mikayla Mendez as well as Alexis Texas, Tory Lane, Jayden James and Kayla Carrera. What set 2040 apart from other Wicked Pictures feature releases was the fact that it featured these ravishing Wicked Pictures contract girls performing alongside life-sized silicone replicas of themselves that had been created by pioneering sex toy manufacturers RealDoll! Kaylani starred in 2040 as hit woman for hire Myoto and enthused within an October 2009 AVN press release how;
“Brad has a really good way of describing what he wants so he has this vision and I just tap into his head and add my own little characteristics to it…I like to take on mainstream actors in any movie I do and think about how they do would do the scene, and imitate them in my head. In this particular movie I went for a little bit of like a sexy Angelina Jolie and a bad ass Lucy Liu. Plus the makeup helps. I had the dramatic makeup and the bangs to create the villain”.
2040 was an instant hit among fans and film critics alike; winning “Best Epic” at the 2010 XRCO Awards as well as “Best Group Sex Scene”, “Best Art Direction” and “Best DVD Menus” at the 2010 AVN Awards. Due to her scene-stealing moments in 2040, it was only a matter of time before Kaylani received her very own RealDoll life-sized mannequin. As such, Kaylani’s mesmerizingly realistic RealDoll was officially unveiled at the 2011 Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE). Kaylani loved the process behind creating her sexy silicone sister and ardently enthused in a December 2010 AVN press release how;
“This has been an amazing journey, one that I will never forget. I truly enjoyed every moment that went into the process of making this doll, from the 3D scanning to the molding…It’s great to finally have a carpool buddy that I can depend on!…Many thanks to Wicked and Real Doll for this opportunity. I know my fans will enjoy the doll. I can’t wait for you all to take me home, so what are you waiting for? Order me online now at WickedRealDoll.com“.
