Can’t get enough of captivatingly curvy cougars? Then you’re going to love Mercedes Carrera! A former aerospace engineer and fashion model turned award-winning porn star, Mercedes is an ardent free speech advocate who launched the first ever porn-funded STEM scholarship. Beauty, brains and brawn, Mercedes Carrera has it all!
Hailing from Los Angeles, California, Mercedes is a natural born performer who started working as a fashion and print model when she was 13 years old. Alongside her passion for performing, Mercedes is also a highly intelligent individual who studied Engineering and Technology at college before working in the Aerospace industry for several years. Mercedes has since worked as a Technical Trainer in Telecommunications as well as pursuing various photography production work and part-time modelling projects. Talking about these early years within her October 2014 Adult DVD Talk interview, Mercedes explained how;
“I was a fashion and print model from the age of 13 years old and I grew up in and around LA near the industry. I’m half Puerto Rican and my dad was Swedish and Native American (so the height and the hair come from my father’s side). As a side note, the hair’s all natural! (Everyone always asks if they’re extensions.) When I was 15, I was a super scrawny 5’8” and 100 pounds and they loved that in commercial print. In my early 20s, I developed a Puerto Rican butt and was put under constant pressure to lose weight. After modelling I went to college for Engineering and Technology. I worked in Aerospace for a few years, then as a Technical Trainer in Telecommunications for awhile, but I always kept my hand in the entertainment industry. I did a lot of photography production work and PA work and other peripheral industry work as well as continued modelling part time”.
Wondering how Mercedes first discovered her porn star potential? Well it all began when she started nude modelling as a saucy hobby. What started off as a fun experience soon evolved into a thriving career as Mercedes was signed with the ATMLA modelling agency and began to be booked for a wealth of popular porn productions. As Mercedes commented in her October 2014 Adult DVD Talk interview;
“I started doing erotic nude modelling as a hobby and was moderately successful at it. I have friends who do Euro style “artsy” erotica and I did some shoots with them and they encouraged me to get into American style porn. They thought with my look and performance style that I would be successful. I was aware of the adult industry but it never occurred to me to be a performer in that genre. A couple months ago I shot my first scene and I ended up really loving it! At first I thought it would be a bucket list experience but it’s turned out to be so much more. It’s super fun and I’m relatively good at it and I found out that people will hire me non-stop to do it. I signed with ATMLA and they are an amazing agency; such great people”.
Mercedes loves performing in porn and has found it incredibly liberating that her captivating curves have been praised by fans and production companies alike. As Mercedes puts it in her own words;
“The fashion industry is all about keeping girls thin, so all I heard for 10 years was ‘Hey, you have to lose weight.’ There’s a lot of pressure and I had a big butt naturally. So when I got into porn and someone asked if my ass was real I totally cracked up. It never occurred to me that people made their asses bigger because I always tried to make mine smaller. That’s part of my falling in love with this industry because you can be yourself. Porn celebrates all types of females. It’s a very female positive industry. It’s not that way in mainstream modelling at all”.
Mercedes Carrera : Adult Film Career
Mercedes filmed her first ever sex scenes in 2014 for the popular porn site NetVideoGirls. When she was asked about shooting her adult film industry debut in her October 2014 Adult DVD Talk interview, Mercedes revealed that;
“That’s when I fell in love with it. I had modelled for so long that it was very natural for me to be in front of cameras. So going into it, I thought it was going to be fun. Porn sex is so different from regular sex because you’re playing to the camera. There’s a learning curve and I’m definitely still learning but it was a real natural thing for me. It was like ‘There’s the camera and we’re going to have sex playing to it.’ I’m really good at being in the moment. It was for NetVideoGirls which is a very prolific site. It wasn’t my intention to be a porn star at all, I was just going to do a porn shoot. It was fun and it was exciting. At the end of it, I thought it was totally cool. The second one I did was for Footsiebabes which is the one that’ll come up if you Google me and I felt like I had found my career”.
From this point onwards Mercedes was featured in a wide range of best-selling MILF/cougar DVDs, taboo relations titles and big bust themed porn productions. Among some of Mercedes’ hottest hits include her Brazzersbowl Sunday group sex scene with Destiny Dixon, Peta Jensen and Keiran Lee in February 2015, Vampirella: A XXX Parody (2016) for Brazzers Network, Prime MILF 4 (2017) for Hard X that was nominated for “Best MILF Movie” at the 2018 AVN Awards, Women Getting Even (2017) for Sweet Sinner which was nominated for “Best Comedy” at the 2018 AVN Awards. Mercedes has also been showcased within the annual Elegant Angel DVDs MILF Performers of the Year 2016 and MILF Performers of the Year 2017 alongside fellow fan-favourite performers India Summer, Julia Ann, Briana Banks, Cherie DeVille, Veronica Avluv, Nina Elle, Bridgette B., Kendra Lust and Ryan Conner.
One of Mercedes’ most successful porn productions to date has been the kinky cooking show themed couples release Forked (2016). Directed by Kay Brandt for Adam & Eve, Forked showcased Mercedes in a thrilling three-way with Mia Li and Damon Dice for which she won “Best Sex Scene – Couples-Themed Release” at the 2017 XBIZ Awards. But wait, it gets even better! Mercedes also received a “Best Actress – Couples-Themed Release” at the 2017 XBIZ Awards and a “Best Three-Way Sex Scene” nomination at the 2018 AVN Awards for her terrific three-way with Marcus London and Tony De Sergio. All in all, Forked was a critical and commercial success that was named “Couples-Themed Release of the Year” at the 2017 XBIZ Awards and which received a wholehearted endorsement from XCritic column writer J.W. Sharp who enthused in his April 2017 film review how;
“This is one of those rare adult films that you feel like every performer on set is having the time of their lives and would do the whole thing again in a heartbeat. Whether they are whipping something up together in the kitchen or romping elsewhere in the house, the smiles never leave their faces. It’s a great combination of hilarity, instructional video, and amazing sex…
The title is squarely aimed at couples and the discs are laid out in a manner that allows build up time, playtime, and cool down time between the bouts of hardcore banging. The only thing this disc set is missing is Leya Falcon’s F-bomb Meter that you can watch on YouTube, which is hilarious! There are just so many great ways to enjoy this tastiness now, that I would be remiss not to upgrade my initial rating of Highly Recommended to XCritic Pick. It’s obvious how much time, effort, and thought were put into this new concept. That dedication garnered this flick eight award nominations from XBIZ 2017, and it snagged two of them!”.
Just when you though it couldn’t get an better, Mercedes has begun to star in a broad spectrum of BDSM web clips, femdom DVDs and fetish porn productions. If you’ve always wanted to discover Mercedes’ devilish domme side then you’ll love watching Kinky Cuckold Gangbang 3 (2016) for Severe Sex which was nominated for “Best Polyamory Movie” at the 2017 AVN Awards and “Fetish Release of the Year” at the 2017 XBIZ Awards, Transsexual Mashup (2017) for Gender X within which Mercedes sharing a sizzling shoot with Alexa Scout, TS Factor 8 (2017) for Evil Angel that showcased Mercedes in a saucy scene with Nikki Vicious, Squirting Stepmoms (2017) for Zero Tolerance and Watching My Hotwife 3 (2018) for New Sensations starring Riley Reid, Alison Tyler, Mona Wales, Andi Rye and Elena Koshka. Mercedes enjoys exploring her curious kinkster side in these fun fetish releases and she has raunchily revealed within her Adult DVD Talk interview that;
“To be honest, before porn, I was pretty vanilla. I have worked as a hypnotist before so I’ve been playing around with incorporating that; creating fetish hypnosis videos, for example, JOI. I am inquiring right now to train as a Domme. I appreciate fetishes because I think it’s fascinating all the different things that get people off. And I like it when I get to experiment. I didn’t even realize what a foot fetishist was and I totally dig it. Once I did that shoot, I thought, “I can really get into this. I can handle someone worshiping my feet, it’s totally sexy…I’ve learned so much about myself. I’ve learned that my happiest state is expressing myself 100% and sexuality is a huge part of that for me. I’ve learned that different things get me off that I didn’t expect. Like I really loved the orgy scenes and I can handle a couple of cocks at a time easily”.
A landmark moment in Mercedes’ adult film career occurred in January 2016 when she was named as Girlsway’s “Girl of the Month”. Mercedes is famous for her sensational girl/girl collaborations among which include her epic group shoot with Ana Foxxx, Ash Hollywood, Dani Daniels, Keisha Grey, Lexi Belle, Maddy O’Reilly and Ryan Ryans in Sisterhood (2015) for Digital Playground which was nominated for “Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene” and “Best Comedy” at the 2016 AVN Awards, her thrilling Dr Jeckyll and Mrs Hyde three-way with Abella Danger and Katrina Jade that was released via Girlsway in October 2016 and her raunchy role-plays with Cherie DeVille in the Girlsway feature release Project Pandora (2016) that warned her a “Best Supporting Actress” nomination at the 2017 AVN Awards.

Upon receiving these prestigious industry accolades Mercedes has been keen to thank her fans for their ongoing support and praise. Mercedes enjoys interacting with her fans via live cam sites (under the screen name ‘themercedesxxx‘) and via social media. In fact, Mercedes conveyed within her June 2015 Fleshbot interview that;
“I enjoy the direct interaction social media provides. I’m grateful to be in the industry during a time where this is possible. I also am happy to have such a diversity of fans. Some follow me for my porn work, others for my free speech and anti-censorship activism. I love speaking with them all”.
Mercedes Carrera : Advocacy Work & Future Plans
In addition to her critically acclaimed porn productions Mercedes is an ardent free speech advocate who has launched The Porn Charity; the first ever porn-funded STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) scholarship. To do so, Mercedes teamed up with The Fine Young Capitalists who would be managing and administering this scholarship fund.
In order to raise funds for this charitable cause Mercedes teamed up with Paisley Parker, Holly Heart and several other famous female performers and they hosted a lusty live stream via Webcams.com. This webcamming network donated free airtime as well as pledging to double all tips and donations made during the live stream. This inaugural event managed to raised over $11,000 within just two weeks with the proceeds being used to fund a STEM scholarship. Talking about her reasons for launching this pioneering initiative in a January 2015 VICE article, Mercedes explained how;
“‘Tuition is like $40,000 [a year] nowadays at a state school…I don’t know how these kids are doing it’. The application process is handled by the Fine Young Capitalists, a group of specializes in working with underrepresented groups looking to break into the technology sector. Prospective students will be able to apply for the scholarship this February and will be required to submit school transcripts and a short essay outlining why they should be chosen for the program”.
Mercedes was thrilled with the results of this inaugural fundraising event and stated during her June 2015 Fleshbot interview that;
“The Porn Charity came about after a charity event that was being planned was turned down by the original intended charity. After we saw the obstacles in place for adult performers to partner with charities, and we understood the opportunities available for fundraising using pornography, we decided it would be a great opportunity to launch our own initiative. Our first event far surpassed our original expectations and we will be planning more events in the future. You can read more about our first event here”.
Over the course of her adult film career Mercedes has continued to act as a positive voice for free speech within the adult industry. Never afraid to speak her mind, Mercedes has been happy to share her views on misogyny and patriarchy with regards to the adult industry and the STEM sector. In fact, Mercedes highlighted in her January 2015 Tech Raptor interview how;
“My experiences in STEM and “porn” all relate directly to the common denominator in all my experiences: me. Therefore, I do not experience the world as a victim but rather as an opportunity to learn and better myself. I have experienced my challenges and struggles as a part of life and particularly in STEM I never experienced “misogyny” or “patriarchy”. Many corporations are, nowadays especially, very female friendly due to the valiant efforts of first and second wave feminism. Additionally, particularly in engineering and technology, I worked in merit based environments. Now, that’s not to say I always succeeded in such environments, but my lack of success was directly related to my capacity and work ethic, not a result of my gender. In reality I was doing well in corporate America but the restrictions were not preferable so I went into doing freelance production. From there I kind of fell into doing adult film work as a one off event (I had continued modelling on and off during that time as well)…
I have found that many of the feminist critics are the most outspoken on things that they know nothing about. Take for example their stories that all women in STEM are subject to misogyny, or the idea that only men enjoy sexually empowered female characters: those are perceptions borne of the minds of sex-negative women who largely do not work in the STEM fields. They also critique pornography as though all porn actresses are sex slaves devoid of agency or self determination. As a conscious and willing participant in the field, I find this to not only be insulting but much more condescending than any supposed misogyny I should have experienced in any of my careers. There is often also a passive aggressive tone to the 3rd wave rad-fem critique of women who disagree- as though our voices must be dismissed as we obviously are either tools of the patriarchy or have “internalized misogyny”. Again, all highly insulting, condescending and most of all, inaccurate. It’s a great shame that they claim to support empowered women, but when a woman points out the glaring inaccuracies of their ideology she is quickly dismissed”.
Mercedes is very proud of her industry accomplishments and hopes to remain a voice for free speech within the industry. As Mercedes puts it in her own words;
“I’m really happy with what I’ve achieved and I love being one of the working MILFs in the industry. I also like being supportive of other performers and hope to be a positive voice for free speech in the industry
So what does the future hold for MILF superstar Mercedes Carrera? Well, when she was asked about her future career plans during her October 2014 Adult DVD Talk interview Mercedes conveyed how;
“I’m really starting to take this adult career really seriously. So I’m working on brand development. My eventual goal is to become a contract girl for a major company. I just want to shoot a lot in the next couple of years because I like shooting and I want to expand my repertoire into “interracial” and anal. And even do DP’s because they’re sexy to watch”.
