Ever since she filmed she filmed her first sex scenes in 2011, Nikki Hearts has forged a thriving career as one of the adult film industry’s most popular queer porn stars. A highly accomplished performer, director, producer and webcam model, Nikki is also a talented blogger, photographer and videographer who has established a dedicated global fan base due to her insightful Stockroom blog, her broad spectrum of Burning Angel and Kink.com web clips as well as her scene-stealing moments in the award-nominated DVD titles Secret Life of a Lesbian (2014), Making the Band (2015), Cindy Queen Of Hell (2016) and Lezzz Be Roommates (2016).
Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, Nikki Hearts has always had a passion for music. As well as playing bass from a young age, Nikki’s parents were musicians so throughout her childhood she would go to rock concerts and thus her love for Mötley Crue, Poison and Motorhead was born! Due to her alternative music interests, Nikki was regarded as an outsider during her high school years. Nikki has explained in her August 2015 Fleshbot interview that;
“In high school, I was very unpopular! I went to a very preppy school, and I was a dirty punk. I dated band dudes and gutter punks until I started experimenting with girls … Then I went on a girl-fucking and dating rampage … and here I am today!”.
Nikki discussed her childhood years and her sexuality in greater detail within her April 2014 Rock Confidential interview, elaborating upon how;
“I was definitely a shy, weird kid. I’ve been into the same shit my whole life, and I grew up in a wealthy urban suburb, so I was a total outcast. I spent all of my time playing bass in my room, skateboarding and watching VH1 Classic. (laughs) Once I found out that other people like myself existed I started to come out of my shell, especially when I started getting into bands… Then doing porn really pulled every last bit of inhibition out of me and spiked my confidence…
I had a rocky, drawn out “coming out period”. It all started when I met some lesbians my age, after switching over to an alternative high school. It started to dawn on me then that I had been denying my attraction to girls, so I started experimenting. But I don’t think I was nearly as comfortable and “proud” with my sexuality until a few months into doing porn. That really pulls a lot of the vulnerability and inhibition to the surface, which either breaks you or makes you stronger in your beliefs and feelings about yourself”.
Nikki first began working in the adult entertainment industry when she was 18 years old as a sex shop retailer. One of Nikki’s roommates at the time introduced her to the queer porn genre and in this manner Nikki began appearing within several indie feminist porn productions. As Nikki herself explained within her June 2012 Autostraddle interview;
“I started watching a lot of porn when I was 18 mostly because I wanted to find something that was real lesbian porn, or at least had real lesbians in it. It was surprisingly hard to find. Then I moved into this big feminist house where one of the roommates introduced me to queer porn. She showed me Crash Pad, No Fauxxx, stuff like that, and then I finally saw one called ‘Strap On Motel’ starring Dylan Ryan, and seeing that really inspired me – I wanted to make porn that looks like that. Eventually I met Jett Bleu, who I didn’t know was a porn star at first. She’s actually a pretty big name in the industry. Anyway, she said I was cute enough and that she would recommend me, so that’s how I started working with Juicy Pink Box…
Obviously as a kid I wasn’t an aspiring porn star, who does that?! But I knew who porn stars were because of the rock stars they associated with. Nikki Sixx [of Mötley Crüe] was a major influence, I started playing bass because of him and started playing in bands because of him. I’d like to pick that back up eventually, but as a porn star I’m still basically living out my dream – travelling, performing, meeting new people, and doing something artistic”.
Nikki Hearts : Adult Film Career
In 2011 Nikki filmed her first ever sex scenes with Calico Lane for the Juicy Pink Box/Girlfriends Films porn production Hotel (2011). Despite her confident on-screen persona, Nikki was incredibly nervous upon making her adult film industry debut and has divulged within her June 2012 Autostraddle interview that;
“I had this moment of standing outside the building before the shoot and contemplating leaving. I knew I didn’t have to do it, but if I did it once it would be out there. And even once I got in there I wasn’t comfortable. I sat in hair and makeup for a really long time, and then we moved on to photo stills, which is the first time you’re naked and trying to look good. I was really nervous until we started filming, after which the initial fear went away and got replaced by “Do I look ok? Am I doing this right?” But I didn’t decide to do another scene until ‘Hotel’ came out…
Well, I heard I didn’t do my best job during the editing process. I wasn’t exactly getting positive reinforcement. But then the film came out and it was way better than I expected. Granted, it was a short scene – they had to edit out a lot of my nervousness – but it turned out good for what it was and made me realize that I’m not going to like everything I do, but I can control how I perform. It’s definitely a learning process”.
After making her adult film industry debut with Hotel (2011), Nikki began shooting for several alternative porn production companies such as Crash Pad Series, Trouble Films and Genderfluxxx and as well as for mainstream production companies such as New Sensations, Jules Jordan Video and Digital Playground among many others. If we had to name a handful of Nikki’s most popular porn productions filmed during this time then we’d recommend checking out Beyond Fucked: A Zombie Odyssey (2013) for Smash Pictures for which Nikki’s sultry sex scenes with Bonnie Rotten were nominated for “Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene” at the 2014 AVN Awards, Amateur Introductions 11 (2014) for Jules Jordan Video/Amateur Allure that was nominated for “Pro-Am Release of the Year” at the 2015 XBIZ Awards, Apocalypse X (2014) for Digital Playground that won “Best Cinematography”, “Best Art Direction” and “Best Editing” at the 2015 AVN Awards as well as “Best Special Effects” at the 2015 XBIZ Awards, Girl On Girl Milk (2014) for Hustler Video that was nominated for “Best All-Girl Release” at the 2015 AVN Awards and My Best Friend’s Perfect Pussy (2015) for Trouble Films that was nominated for “All-Girl Release of the Year” at the 2016 AVN Awards.
Fans of Nikki Hearts will also love viewing her titillating three-way with Lily Cade and Proxy Paige in Eat My Lesbian Ass (2012) for Filly Films, her sultry sex scenes with Julia Ann in Girl Lessons (2013) for Addicted 2 Girls, her raunchy role-play scenes with Sinn Sage in the Sweetheart Video DVD title Prison Lesbians (2014), her sizzling sex scenes with Lexi Belle in the Sweetheart Video star showcase Lexi Belle Loves Girls (2014), her intimate Deep Delivery sex scenes with Shyla Jennings that were promoted via girlsway.com in June 2016 and her saucy sex scenes with Riley Reid that were showcased in the Filly Films DVD feature release A Girl’s Tale (2016). During this time Nikki also began shooting a broad spectrum of femdom, BDSM and fetish porn web clips for the fetish lifestyle network Kink.com. Die-hard Nikki Hearts enthusiasts will not want to miss out on watching her erotic wrestling bouts with Bella Rossi in November 2013 and with Alexis Aimes in March 2014 that were both released as part of Kink.com‘s epic Ultimate Surrender erotic wrestling web series, her mesmerising Strangers In The Night sex scenes with TS star Tori Mayes in November 2016 for TS Pussy Hunters and most recently her Reformed Living: The Mormon Way gangbang with Jon Jon, Owen Gray, Tommy Pistol, Will Havoc and Steve Holmes that was unveiled via Kink.com’s Hardcore Gangbang web series in May 2017.
A defining moment in Nikki’s adult film career came in December 2012 when she appeared in the festive-themed Burning Angel Entertainment web clip Ho, Ho, Ho, Ho, Ho! alongside Joanna Angel, Kleio Valentien, Jessie Lee and Sierra Cure. Shooting this fun festive flick paved the way for Nikki to appear in a broad spectrum of fan-favourite Burning Angel web clips and award-winning DVD titles such as Band Sluts (2013) with Draven Star, Veruca James and Arabelle Raphael that won “Best Comedy” at the 2014 AVN Awards, The Walking Dead: A Hardcore Parody (2013) that was nominated for “DVD of the Year” at the 2013 Inked Awards, Rooftop Lesbians 1: Going Up To Go Down (2013) that was nominated for “Best All-Girl Release” at the 2014 AVN Awards, Shark Bait (2014) that won “Best Comedy” at the 2015 AVN Awards, Tattooed Strippers (2014) within which Nikki shared a thrilling three-way with Brandy Aniston and Mr. Pete, POV Punx 10: Cuties (2015), Big Black Dicks And Tattooed Chicks 2 (2015) that was nominated for “Best Interracial Release” at the 2016 AVN Awards, It’s My First Time 3 (2015) that was nominated for “All-Sex Release of the Year” at the 2017 XBIZ Awards, Making The Band (2015) that was nominated for “Best Parody: Comedy” at the 2016 AVN and XBIZ Awards and Dykes Takin’ Dick (2016) for which Nikki posed as the DVD cover model alongside her wife and fellow adult film star Leigh Raven; the list goes on!
Out of all of these sensational Burning Angel DVD titles, Nikki is probably best known for her epic group sex scene that she filmed with Anna Bell Peaks, Leigh Raven and Chad Alva that was showcased in the Burning Angel feature release Cindy Queen Of Hell (2016). This sensational porn production was an instant hit among fans and film critics which proceeded to win “Best Comedy” at the 2017 AVN Awards as well as receiving a wealth of notable nominations for “Best Editing”, “Best Soundtrack”, “Best Art Direction” and “Best Screenplay”. Nikki has loved shooting these phenomenal porn productions for Burning Angel and has ardently expressed within her August 2015 Fleshbot interview that;
“I love that it feels like a family reunion every time I’m on set! Oh man, that statement could be taken so horribly! Haha, but for real, everyone is just so comfortable and fun to be around. Joanna keeps her crew tight, and we have a lot of fun. I guess it’s more like a gang than a family. That sounds way less gross…
I got into the industry through my discovery of the Indie/Queer Porn genre in San Francisco. I loved Jiz Lee, Dylan Ryan, Syd Blakovich, all those folks. They inspired me to want to give porn a go. I always thought Joanna and Burning Angel were super cool, but I never thought I would do anything as majorly distributed as Burning Angel…
She [Joanna Angel] is great. I always love her ideas and bouncing funny ideas for scenes back and forth. She makes everything comfortable and tailors things to fit the performer, which I really appreciate”.
In recent months Nikki has filmed her first ever double anal sex scenes with Ramon Nomar and Steve Holmes that will be showcased within the upcoming Burning Angel DVD compilation title Double Anal FTW (2017) and she has also starred alongside famous female performers Adriana Chechik, Valentina Nappi, Amara Romani, Carter Cruise, Daisy Ducati, Erica Lauren, Laela Pryce and Skin Diamond in Gang Affiliated 5 (2017) for Diabolic Video. Nikki continues to collaborate with her wife and fellow adult film performer Leigh Raven in a wealth of phenomenal porn productions including the Kick Ass Pictures DVD title Black Bi Cuckolding 31 (2017) which features Nikki and Leigh in a raunchy cuckolding session with Marcelo and Mickey Mod, the Jules Jordan Video porn production Inked Nation (2017) within which Nikki and Leigh share a thrilling three-way with Prince Yahshua, the Sweetheart Video DVD sequel release Prison Lesbians 5 (2017) that enabled Nikki and Leigh to share some ravishing prison role-play scenes with one another as well as Raw 30 (2017) for Jules Jordan Video also starring Eva Lovia, Gina Valentina and Elena Koshka. Fans of porn star power couple Nikki and Leigh should also keep an eye out for their upcoming Filly Films DVD collaboration Lesbian Anal Virgins (2017); not to be missed!
Nikki Hearts : Multi-Talented Photographer, Producer & Director
As well as performing in porn, Nikki is an incredibly talented photographer, producer, director and writer. When she was asked about her additional adult entertainment projects during her September 2013 Jackie Mantey interview, Nikki highlighted how;
“I recently started my own company, and one of the first scenes we shot was myself with Jiz Lee. Jiz really inspired me to start doing porn and is probably the most idolized queer porn performer. Being able to work with them (they use gender neutral pronouns, because they identify as gender neutral) and write a scene that exemplifies everything I love about queer porn was a really awesome and humbling experience…
When I first started I never imagined that I would be producing and directing but I’ve learned over the past two years that, 1) as a girl/girl-only performer who is tattooed and “alt” looking, it’s really hard to be booked enough to make a living. It’s hard to make a living no matter who you are these days. Sadly, porn stars just don’t make that much money anymore; there is not enough money and work to go around, thanks to tube sites (“free porn”) and piracy. And 2) I started making porn not for money or fame, but because I want to put my messages and ideas about sex out there. So making my own porn all together is far more effective than just performing for other people”.
A highly accomplished adult film director in her own right, some of Nikki’s most popular productions have been those which she has directed, and performed within, for Filly Films. We recommend checking out the Filly Films DVD sequel releases Turning Girls Out 1 (2014) and Turning Girls Out 2: Wifed Up (2016) as well as Lesbians Go Downtown Los Angeles (2014), the brilliant BDSM porn production Lezzz Get Kinky (2014) and Lezzz Be Roommates (2016) for which Nikki’s terrific three-way with Leigh Raven and Raven Rockette was nominated for “Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene” at the 2017 AVN Awards. Most recently, Nikki has co-directed the Filly Films DVD title Real Fucking Lesbians: Coast To Coast (2017) with her wife and fellow adult film star Leigh Raven. Performing, producing and directing her own porn productions have earned Nikki a wealth of coveted adult film award nominations throughout her porn star career including;
- 2013: Inked Awards nominee “Starlet of the Year”
- 2014: AVN Awards nominee “Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene” Beyond Fucked: A Zombie Odyssey (with Bonnie Rotten)
- 2015: XBIZ Awards nominee “Best Scene – All-Girl” Secret Life of a Lesbian (with Jessa Rhodes)
- 2016: AVN Awards nominee “Best Group Sex Scene” Making the Band (with Joanna Angel, Lily Lane, Jordyn Shane and Small Hands)
- 2016: XBIZ Awards nominee “Girl/Girl Performer of the Year”
- 2017: AVN Awards nominee “Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene” Lezzz Be Roommates (with Leigh Raven and Raven Rockette)
As well as shooting these award-nominated porn productions, in March 2013 Nikki took part in Melissa Murphy’s photography project ‘Porn Stars With And Without Makeup’ alongside such famous female performers as Asphyxia Noir, Anikka Albrite, Draven Star, Proxy Paige, Dani Daniels, Nikki Hearts, Karmen Karma, Veruca James, Chanel Preston, Tori Black, Larkin Love and Nikki Benz but to name a few! Melissa Murphy’s photos proved extremely popular and received over one million views within merely three days of being shared via a post on the photo sharing site Imgur! These brilliant before and after photos have also been promoted via the Complex Style website in a feature article titled 25 Unbelievable Photos of Adult Film Stars Before and After Applying Make-up as well as via Huffington Post, the NY Daily News website, The Chive and a Gossip On This (GOT) article among many more mainstream media news outlets. These photos highlighted the natural beauty of these adult film performers and shone a light on the process of making pornographic productions. As Complex magazine writer James Harris mentioned in his feature article;
“Seeing these women in a “natural” state next to the characters that they’re paid to play allows for another way of viewing the people and process that goes into making adult films…This isn’t a chance to gawk at these women, instead it’s a peek behind the spectacle that is adult entertainment. How this makes you feel is entirely on you”.
After four years of working within the adult film industry, Nikki took a brief hiatus in February 2015 in order to lead her own series of GCJ University sexuality workshops that she organised in collaboration with the Ohio-based adult and fetish retail stores The Garden and The Chamber. Upon discussing these sexuality workshops in a February 2015 XBIZ News press release, Nikki explained that;
“Sex education and positivity has always been extremely important to me, and at a time when I am on indefinite hiatus from shooting, I miss the sex industry, and I miss promoting these values that are so important to me…When I proposed the idea, [The Garden and The Chamber] were happily willing to provide the space and whatever I needed to get this going. We plan to get involved in community events as much as possible, but beyond that we want to spread as much knowledge as possible”.
In this manner Nikki hosted four sexuality workshops in February 2015 that were titled the G Spot Workshop, Oral Sex for Couples, Kink 101 and Anal Sex for Beginners. When she resumed her adult film industry career in late 2015, Nikki continued to promote various sex education programs through her role as a product educator, marketing assistant, and blog curator for the fetish retail website The Stockroom. Among some of Nikki’s most popular The Stockroom blog posts include The Fine Art Of Going Down On Her that was uploaded in August 2016, Choosing A Vibrator that she released in December 2016 and her How To: Strap-On Sex With Women post that was published in May 2017. Nikki also continues to promote her photography and videography work via her official solo website nikkiheartsphoto.com as well as performing all manner of saucy live chat sessions and captivating couples live cam shows with Leigh Raven for the adult cam sites HoloGirlsVR, Burning Angel and Cherry Pimps.
