Breathtakingly beautiful with a raw sexual charisma, once you’ve set eyes on Tori Black there’s no turning back!
Even when she was growing up in Seattle, Washington, it was evident to friends and family that Tori Black was a natural born performer; having taken dance classes since she was seven years old. In fact, Tori has even worked as a belly dance instructor later in life.
But here’s the deal; Tori has always regarded herself as a tomboy who enjoyed boxing, air hockey, football and video games. As Tori herself explained in her Adult DVD Talk interview;
“I grew up a tomboy all through my elementary and junior high. I always played outside and mostly hung out with guys. Girls seemed too catty for me. I liked playing sports and hanging out with the boys. That lasted until junior high when I got a little girlier”.
Unfortunately, Tori has divulged in previous interviews that she had a troubled childhood; spending a lot of her time fighting and experimenting with drugs since she was 12 years old. During this period of her life Tori has admitted that she was addicted to; “getting outside her body, outside her mind”.
Struggling to cope with her rebellious daughter, Tori’s mother sent her to boot camp. Upon returning home from boot camp, Tori’s mother decided to home-school her in an effort to distance her from the negative influences of her friends. In previous interviews Tori has discussed how her home-schooling was Internet-based; leaving her at home alone all day, cut off from her friends and feeling dissatisfied with her day-to-day life. Tori has explained how it was this boredom which drove her to sneak out of the house during the day, meet up with her old friends and revert back to her old ways.
When Tori’s behaviour began to affect her school grades, she was sent to live with her grandparents. Unfortunately, Tori’s grandparents still lived near her old friends so once again she found herself in trouble and was eventually kicked out of her grandparent’s home.
After briefly staying at her father’s house before being kicked out of there too, Tori was left homeless and fleeting to and from various friends’ houses. In a last ditch attempt to help her daughter, Tori’s mother sent her to a private boarding school in Condon, Montana. In an October 2013 interview for Richardson magazine, Tori described her experience at this school, noting how;
“The school was for the crazy of the crazy, but also the smart of the smart, and when you put crazy and smart together, it’s not a good combination: the things they come up with, to do to each other, to do to themselves. It was like living in some weird horror movie….It was like a cult. They trained you as if you were going to live in the middle of nowhere for the rest of your life, as if the only people you were ever going to be around would be soldiers hand-selected from their therapy game. I felt like I’d been brainwashed. When I finally got out and went to college—and when I say college, I mean a 12,000-student university—I felt like an alien”.
So what came next for Tori? Well, after graduating from the Mission Mountain School Tori attended Western Washington University where she majored in Journalism with a minor in Sociology & Women’s Studies.
But then everything changed. When Tori was 18 years old, and just about to return home from college for summer vacation, her parents insisted that she find herself a summer job. Unable to find a waitressing or retail position on short notice, Tori stumbled across an online advert for an adult talent agency. So of course she sent in some pictures!
Impressed by Tori’s fresh-faced beauty and stunning figure, the agency offered to fly her to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in order to shoot her very first sex scenes. After consulting with her friends for advice and receiving their encouragement, Tori accepted the agency’s offer and within a week she found herself filming her very first adult film scene; a solo shaving video for The Score Group. Tori has described this pivotal moment in her life during a Miami.com interview with Bob Emanuel Jr in May 2012, highlighting how;
“I actually started my career out in Fort Lauderdale. I was in college. It was summer vacation, and I go back home with my parents. They were on me, as any parent would be, to get a job and quit being lazy. It gets on anybody’s nerves. I was looking for a go-go dancing job to see if I can go dance at a night club or something like that. Of course, they wouldn’t allow me to do anything like that unless I was 21, and I was only 18 at the time. I ended up bumping into an ad for an adult talent agency down in Florida. I sent in my pictures just to see what they would say. I was like, ‘Oh this is funny. Let me see if they accept me, and I’ll brag about it to my friends.’ They ended up saying yes. I considered it, and a week later I was down in Florida”.
Still curious about Tori’s adult film beginnings? Not to worry; Tori embellished on this story in a later interview with Adult DVD Talk, delving into further detail about how;
“I was in college and I had to go home for the summer. I couldn’t afford to stay on campus. My family was paying for my room and board and my tuition. During the summer, they wanted me to get a job and support myself. The only problem was, they refused to let me work during the school year. So there were virtually no jobs available only for the summer. So I looked on Craig’s List and I thought it would be cool to be one of those dancers in a club, those girls that just stand up there and dance all night long. I could do that because that’s what I did anyways when I went to a club. I was looking through all these ads and no club would let me in because I was 18 and you had to be 21 because they served alcohol…
So I stumbled across this ad for an agency and it said ‘Do you want to earn $20,000 a month?’ For a college student, for most people, your eyes pop out of your head. Um, yes? The job was for a porn agency and I thought, ‘I can do this, let me just send in my pictures.’ So I sent them in and they got back to me right away and said they’d pay for my flights both ways, they’d pay for me to go there and if I didn’t like it, they’d pay for me to go home. I thought that was perfect because I didn’t have any money. So I went to all my friends and said, “OK guys, what do you think? Should I be a porn star or not?” And everybody was totally gung ho for it. They said they’d be my biggest fans and supporters. So I packed up a big suitcase with all my belongings. I got there and I was completely green. A month in, I was deciding to move to LA to continue to work in the industry. Shortly thereafter, my whole family knew what was going on. I had planned on going back to school but at that point, once your family knows, you’re like, eh, so I kept going. And then the next thing you know, here I am!”.
Tori Black : Adult Film Career
It comes as no surprise that Tori’s first sex scene for Score Group was well received by fans and it kicked off the start of a promising career within the adult industry.
Don’t believe us? The results speak for themselves; within a year of making her adult film industry debut, Tori had been named as the “Penthouse Pet of the Month” for December 2008, she was named as Twistys “Treat of the Month” for September 2009 and she was crowned “Best New Starlet” at the 2009 AVN Awards.
Following a fantastic first year in the adult industry, Tori signed with LA Direct models in 2009. Never one to sit on the side-lines, Tori proceeded to shoot her first non-POV anal scene which was featured in her Elegant Angel star showcase Tori Black Is Pretty Filthy (2009). Directed by Mason and starring Kristina Rose, Marie Luv and Rebeca Linares, Tori Black Is Pretty Filthy was an instant hit which won “Best Gonzo Movie” at the 2010 XRCO Awards as well as receiving multiple nominations for “Best Anal Sex Scene” at the 2010 AVN Awards and “Best All-Sex Release” at the 2009 RogReviews’ Critics Choice Awards.
Want to know the best part? This sizzling star showcase spawned a fantastic sequel; Tori Black Is Pretty Filthy 2 (2010). Directed once again by Mason and featuring Alexis Texas, Asa Akira, Charley Chase, Andy San Dimas and Jennifer White, Tori Black Is Pretty Filthy 2 was another critical and commercial success that featured Tori in her standalone DP scene and which won “Best Gonzo Movie” at the 2011 XRCO Awards and which was nominated for “Best High-End All-Sex Release” at the 2011 AVN Awards.
But Tori didn’t stop there; from 2009 onwards she starred in a steady stream of critically acclaimed porn parodies. Fans of Tori Black will love watching her saucy portrayal of Catwoman in Axel Braun’s Vivid comic book caper Batman XXX: A Porn Parody (2009) which won “Best Parody: Comedy” at the 2010 AVN Awards.
Let’s be honest; we all love a kinky comic book caper. So why not also check out Tori’s sizzling scenes in the Vivid porn parody Incredible Hulk: A XXX Porn Parody (2011). Directed by B. Skow and starring Alexis Texas, India Summer, Gracie Glam, Lexi Belle, Tanya Tate and Lily Labeau, once again Tori’s sizzling scenes were a smash-hit that received multiple “Best Special Effects” and “Best Makeup” nominations at the 2012 AVN Awards.
Many of Tori’s most popular porn parodies have been those which she filmed for Hustler Video. If you’re eager to explore some of Tori’s fun flicks then you have to check out Axel Braun’s This Ain’t Happy Days XXX (2009), Ashlynn Brooke’s Wonder Woman XXX (2010) and Will Ryder’s This Ain’t The Partridge Family XXX (2009) and Not The Cosbys XXX 1 and 2 (2010) which won “Best Feature” at the 2009 RogReviews’ Critics Choice Awards.
Curious about Tori’s most recent porn parody? It was none other than the Official Hangover Parody (2012) for Zero Tolerance which earned Tori multiple “Best Supporting Actress” and “Best Solo Sex Scene” nominations at the 2013 AVN Awards.

Tori has even been ranked as number one in Complex magazine’s “The Top 100 Hottest Porn Stars Right Now” list in 2011. It doesn’t get much better than that!
But don’t worry, even with all of these impressive industry accolades Tori still has her feet firmly on the ground. After all, Tori has always been extremely appreciative upon receiving these adult film awards over the years and she explained within an interview with Miami.com how;
“I take it as a more of a personal character reference than anything else. There are a lot of beautiful women out there. There are a lot of phenomenal performers and girls that are extremely heightened in their sexuality. I think the reason I was awarded those awards is because of my personality, who I am and what I stand for. I think, for me, it was more of a personal accomplishment in that regard. It’s an honor. It’s nice to feel appreciated. It’s nice to feel celebrated. Of course I was humbled by it. I didn’t expect it at all”.
Tori Black : Directorial Debut
So once you’ve reached the top where do you go next? Behind the camera of course!
Tori made her directorial debut in 2014 with the Elegant Angel porn production Seduction 4. First distributed via the Elegant Angels website in June 2014, Seduction 4 featured Elegant Angel‘s “Girl of the Month” Alina Li as well as famous female performers Dani Daniels, Summer Brielle, A.J. Applegate and Casey Calvert.
Seduction 4 was a co-directing collaboration between Tori, Carlos Dee, Toni Ribas and MimeFreak. So what was Tori’s first solo directing project?
Well, in 2015 Tori directed True Lust (2015) for Girlfriends Films/ArchAngel Productions that showcased captivating cougar Kendra Lust. Also starring Anikka Albrite, Dani Daniels, Jada Stevens and Remy LaCroix, True Lust was an incredibly successful solo directing debut for Tori Black which earned her the coveted “Director of the Year – Non-Feature Release” accolade at the 2016 XBIZ Awards.
Tori has since directed Remy LaCroix’s Girlfriends Films/ArchAngel Productions star showcase Remy’s Angels (2015) which was nominated for “All-Girl Release of the Year” at the 2016 XBIZ Awards. What will Tori direct next? We’ll just have to wait and see!
Tori Black : Mainstream Movie Roles
If you’re a fan of the Showtime series Ray Donovan then keep an eye out for Tori Black! Everyone’s favourite brunette beauty makes an appearance in Season 2 Episode 3 (aka ‘Gem and Loan’) as porn star ‘Lexi Steele’.
You may be surprised to hear the Tori has appeared in several mainstream media productions among which include the 2011 horror movie Half Moon for which Tori played the lead role and worked as the executive producer. Tori’s most recent mainstream media role? A supporting actress in the 2015 horror-comedy flick L.A. Slasher.
Although she has enjoyed filming these mainstream media projects, Tori has mentioned in previous interviews that she would prefer to pursue directing roles in the future;
“I think I would just supplement, add some things from things from mainstream. I wouldn’t necessarily want to do a lot of mainstream. I don’t know if I want to be in the limelight that much. When I got into the industry, I didn’t really realize how much attention I’d be getting. I don’t mind being recognized, but I don’t want to be Sandra Bullock walking down the street and having people recognize you, literally everywhere, all the time, no matter what you’re doing or wearing. You can’t really hide. Of course, that’s a big jump from where I am, but that’s not really what I strive for. I’d like to acting in mainstream movies, but I guess I would do some, but not a lot..
I’m going to be looking more toward the directing side and utilizing some of my more creative side. When you’re performing, you’re acting on instructions. People are telling you what to do. I’d like to get into the other side a little more and see what gifts I have and what I can bring to the table on my own”.
Tori Black : Family Life & Upcoming Projects
Ever wondered what happens when the cameras stop rolling? Well now you can find out! Tori has created a personal blog site, titled The Real Tori Black, through which she has discussed her upcoming projects with her fans; revealing her opinions about issues facing the adult industry, divulging her aspirations to become a journalist and updating her followers with news about her personal life and her romantic relationships.
Although Tori has discussed that she “finds it difficult to find meaningful personal relationship while working in the pornographic industry”, on December 16th 2011 she posted via her official blog site that she had given birth to a baby boy on October 14th. When she was asked about the potential career ramifications of her pregnancy in her Miami.com interview, Tori stated;
“My family is number one above career any day. I got pregnant. It really didn’t matter if there were ramifications or there was any negative reaction, then so be it because having a baby is the most important thing. If people were going to react negatively to it or if my body doesn’t bounce back or whatever, then so be it. The most important thing to me is my family and being a good mother. Really, it didn’t matter”.
In January 2012 Tori and her fiancé Lyndell Anderson were arrested on domestic assault charges after being involved in an altercation whilst staying at a hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. The charges were later dropped and Tori explained the circumstances surrounding the incident via an AVN press release;
“I went out to host a party at Sapphire nightclub, and I was hanging out with Alexis Texas and Asa Akira, and we were all having a great time, just sitting having a few drinks, and anybody who knows what happens when you stop drinking for a really long time and then start drinking again, is that you realize that your tolerance has gone way down. Before I realized it, I was getting pretty drunk…
So we got in the limo and headed back to the hotel, and I stopped at the bar with a friend, and we were having a serious conversation, and I had another few drinks, and by that time, I was way past my limit and not really thinking about what I was drinking. By the time I got to my hotel room, I was going in and out of blacking out, and essentially what happened when I got to the room was, I wanted to cuddle with my baby, as usual—that’s the first thing I want to do when I get home—and his dad was worried that I might hurt him by accident because I couldn’t even walk straight, I couldn’t think, I was really, really quite drunk…
By the time he told me that he wanted me to sober up before I held the baby, I got very defensive, I was embarrassed because I knew how drunk I was, and I thought he was going to take the baby away from me for good, just because, you know when you’re drunk, you just don’t think straight. So I kind of went a little berserk and tried to get the baby, and everything he did was just to restrain me…
The police were called because I was screaming for help because I wanted my baby. I just wanted to hold him and did not realize how far gone I was, and Lyndell just wanted me to compose myself. You know, if I’m trying to lay with the baby, you never know what could happen, so he was just trying to take care of both of us. [TMZ] said he used excessive force, which is not true, and from anybody who knows me, I am a tough girl, and trying to restrain me takes excessive force. Essentially, that’s the story, and that is the whole story, and the most important thing to me is my family, and I made a very big mistake, and to them I apologize…
I apologize to the people that came to see me at AVN and didn’t get a chance to say hello because I was otherwise occupied. I apologize to the companies that I let down and the engagements that I was supposed to have. I let everybody down, and it was a mistake that I made, and I apologize. I apologize to Lyndell, obviously, because the first thing that people want to say is that I’m being abused by the person that I’m with, and that’s just far from the truth, so I just wanted to go on record and straighten it out and say essentially it was more of me being too drunk. From what I hear from Lyndell, I punched a wall and not his head, so it was blown pretty far out of proportion…
The most important thing is that my family and I are OK and they forgive me, and we are working on moving forward”.
Fortunately Tori and Lyndell have since reconciled their relationship and in February 2013 Black announced via her official blog site that she was four months pregnant with her second child.

Tori Black : Advocacy Work & Recent Releases
Let’s be honest; if you’re reading this bio then you’re interested in exploring some of Tori Black’s sauciest sex scenes. If so then you should take some advice from the brunette beauty herself! Within her Adult DVD Talk interview Tori advised how new fans can best sample her extensive porn star portfolio;
“Ooh, that’s rough. I would say the best way to break them in to me would be the Pretty Filthy Series. And the reason I say that is because that was really when I was the most open and the most comfortable in expressing myself. I was in my prime. It was a really good point in my career and I got to shape both those movies. Mason and I worked together a lot and we came up with the concepts together. I got to pick out the people, which helped a lot. I think those are the best movies to get an intro to Tori. There are so many movies. Some people like my feature work. A lot of people want me to play Catwoman. Or they want to watch me in the Partridge Family. There are my different aspects of my career so it really depends on what they want”.
Wondering about Tori Black’s recent projects? Alongside her amazing porn productions, Tori has remained a vocal advocate for women’s rights within the adult entertainment industry. For instance, Tori once stated via her MySpace profile how;
“For those who think the business that I’m in holds women back, I beg to differ. I’ve had a heightened sexuality my whole life, I’m supposed to be this way. I figure since I don’t have any children, any responsibilities in that regard, now is the perfect opportunity for me to express myself in a way I might not be able to as I get older. As for right now, I’m having the time of my life sexin’ it up and wild’n’out in my own way. Later on, who knows what’s in store for Miss Tori Black”.
Similarly, in 2013 Tori appeared alongside her fiancé Lyndell Jackson, as well as fellow adult film stars Lance Hart and James Deen, in a “Sex Week” panel which was moderated by professor of sexual studies, Dr. Susan Stritz.
The bottom line? Whilst discussing a wide range of topics concerning adult entertainment industry, Tori used this Sex Week panel to highlight the controversies surrounding certain female performers charging higher fees to shoot interracial scenes;
“It’s pretty incredible that there are a lot of girls in the industry that do charge more [for interracial scenes], and I think that’s disgusting”.
A talented public speaker, Tori has been a popular guest host on countless radio talk shows, convention panels and at numerous nightclub events over the years.
In fact, in 2011 Tori was invited co-host the AVN Awards ceremony with fellow porn star Riley Steele and mainstream comedienne Lisa Lampanelli. Tori continues to appear as a guest host at nightclub events in Los Angeles, as well as a guest presenter on local radio talk shows.
