For the past five years tattooed starlet Veruca James has established herself as one of the adult entertainment’s industry most popular alternative porn stars! Veruca has amassed an international fan following due to her diverse array of mainstream porn productions and raunchy BDSM content. Before she began working within the adult film industry Veruca James was born in Chicago, Illinois, where she was raised by her Irish American parents. Veruca is proud of her Windy City roots and enthused within her Dream Lover profile how;
“I’m a Chicago girl and will always be, but I can’t complain about endless summer in LA!…I believe in living life to the fullest and pursuing your dreams. As a Midwest girl I love food and cooking is one of my passions. Adventure is my biggest aphrodisiac!”.
Academically talented, athletic and fiercely ambitious, Veronica explained within her XCritic column interview how she achieved good grades whilst at school and did not begin to explore her kinkier side until her later teenage years;
“I was a really good kid! I loved school and got good grades and generally stayed out of trouble. I rebelled a little in high school, but I maintained my ambition…I love to cook and ski and be active in general”.
Veruca discussed this high school rebellion within her Adult DVD Talk interview when she told adult film blogger Captain Jack how she lost her virginity when she was 16 years old;
“I don’t think it was planned, maybe it was. (laughs) It was 2 weeks after my 16th birthday and I think in my head I had some hurdle about waiting until I was 16. It wasn’t necessarily discussed but it was kind of like, ‘Whatever happens now is ok because I’m 16.’ I worked in a drive-in theatre from 13 on. My family at that point, they managed and owned some theatres. They had a couple of drive-ins and a couple of regular indoor theatres. In the summer, my cousins and friends of mine worked at the one closest to my house, about 15-20 minutes away. It was actually one of my absolute favorite jobs ever. The coolest thing to ever do in the summer. We all got to work at the drive-in, stay out late and we’d sit and play cards and whatnot. So I had access to the drive-in where I knew no one was going to knock on our windows or call the police or anything. (laughs) It was kind of fitting for me because it was in public and at a drive-in which was pretty cool…
I definitely had a boyfriend that I was with for a total of 18 months. I was more of a relationship hopper. I went from one boyfriend to the next. There were a few times that I was single for a month or two, then I did get a little nutty. (laughs) Maybe that’s why I was always stuck having a boyfriend. My mom always liked it better that when I had a boyfriend because she felt that it was keeping me under wraps. (laughs)…Sex first happened with another girl when I was 23 or 24. That was when I first picked up a girl and brought her home”.
As mentioned above, before she became an adult film star Veruca’s first job was working at a concession stand at her local drive-in movie theatre. After graduating from high school Veruca attended DePaul University where she graduated with a double bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Finance. After graduating from college Veruca married her partner and started working as a certified public accountant (CPA) for a corporation in Illinois. However, Veruca hated this job and before long she transferred to a job at a mutual fund company. As Veronica explained within her March 2013 LA Weekly interview;
“I would go in to work on Sunday at 4 p.m. because my manager decided that some paper required more meticulous authorization…and I would come home bawling my eyes out. I hated putting in that much work for something that did nothing for me, for anyone else, that was all just paperwork”.
Unfortunately, her job as an accounts manager for a mutual fund company still left Veruca feeling unfulfilled and her married life was starting to feel the strain. After a year of marriage Veronica divorced her husband and moved back home to Chicago. As she explained within her LA Weekly interview;
“We were great friends…just not meant to married”.
In fact, Veruca explained within her Adult DVD Talk interview with Captain Jack that it was not until late 2011 that she left her accounting career behind for good after discovering that a friend of hers had performed for the alternative porn site Burning Angel. Intrigued by this exciting career opportunity, Veruca filmed some sex scenes for Burning Angel, loved the experience and soon began to film for multiple amateur porn sites before quitting her accounting job and pursuing a full-time career as a porn star. As Veruca puts it in her own words;
“I had a friend who had done some stuff with Burning Angel. And Burning Angel, it’s not really full-time performers, it’s just girls coming to fly out every so often…I’ve always been an exhibitionist and very sexual so I thought it’s be pretty cool to have sex on camera and try it out without having to worry about it. To me, I thought it was less risky than performing on a mainstream porn site…
So I tried it out and I loved it! So then I thought I’d try a couple more things and I applied to some amateur stuff that features first timers. Once I started performing more frequently, I kind of got to the point where I realized I hate my job so much. I spend so much of my time dedicated to tasks that I think are pointless. And essentially servicing a big corporate master. There was so much stress that was unnecessary due to stupid office bullshit. Be it politics or filling out paperwork that you have to do for stupid legal reasons that will probably never, ever come to fruition. And I realized that I was wasting my youth being miserable. I have my degree and I have my resume and you can’t ever take that away from me so I can always fall back on that”.
Captain Jack asked Veruca within this Adult DVD Talk interview how her friends and family reacted to her dramatic career shift, to which she replied;
“Both my parents are deceased and I don’t have any siblings. So the only person is my grandma. And I don’t really think it’s appropriate to explain to a 75-year old woman about porn. So I keep good contact with her and she thinks I’m still in accounting. For her, as long as I’m happy and healthy, that’s all she really cares about. Some friends know what I do and some were supportive and some weren’t. I’m pretty sure that a majority of my former co-workers know because I ended up on an actual accounting website. So that was interesting”.
Veruca James : Adult Film Career
In November 2011 Veruca quit her accounting job after filming roughly ten sex scenes for Burning Angel. Veruca’s first ever job with Burning Angel had been a May 2011 solo shoot titled Fire Escape Debut and her first ever hardcore sex scene was actually an anal-themed release for the Mofos website Let’s Try Anal in October 2011 titled Veruca’s Promise.
During this time Veruca had also begun webcam modelling for adult cam-sites and had filmed multiple online sex scenes for Burning Angel including Veruca James POV with popular male porn star James Deen. In late 2011 Veruca began shooting with Lee Roy Meyers for the Brazzers Network and starred in Work Sucks The Big One for their amateur porn site teenslikeitbig.com.
When asked about her shooting her first ever sex scenes and filming anal-themed releases since the very beginning of her adult film career, Veruca conveyed within her Adult DVD Talk interview that;
“I think the very first time, the hardest part for me was the tease…I thought if you want to fuck, let’s fuck, that’s fine! But asking me to seduce a complete stranger…that was honestly the hardest part. As soon as we got to the sex and actual physical contact, that was completely easy and more natural. And obviously learning to position for the camera, that’s something you develop with time…
my very first scene was anal so I literally went all at it. When I did my first scene, I wasn’t anticipating a porn career, I did it because I wanted to. They asked me if I wanted to do anal. I wasn’t sure. She asked if I did it in my personal life. Yes. Do I enjoy it? Yes. Then she told me that we get a little bit extra so I was like, “Hey! If I’m going to do a scene and it’s going to be with a professional, this is probably going to be pretty fucking awesome!” So, my first scene was coming from a different kind of place but now that my career has progressed, I’m not 18, I have a little bit more experience, so it doesn’t really bother me. If I started when I was 18 and this was going to be a decade long career, I could see spacing it out. But for me, this is kind of just how I am. I don’t think it’s really affected me”.
In fact, during her first year working within the adult entertainment industry Veruca filmed multiple anal-themed releases including Anal Threesomes and Le Wood Anal Hazing Crew for Evil Angel with Bobbi Starr, Penny Pax and Francesca Le, as well as Fuckabilly 2, Baristas, Evil Head in October 2012 with Dana DeArmond and Joanna Angel and Rock and Roll in my Butthole 2 for Burning Angel which was nominated for “Best Anal Release” at the 2013 AVN Awards.
Veruca has continued to appear in anal-themed releases throughout her porn star career and fans of Veruca’s anal sex scenes should check out; Wet Asses 2 (2013) for Jules Jordan Video which won “Best Anal Release” at the 2014 AVN Awards, Alien Ass Party 2 (2014) for Evil Angel with Bonnie Rotten, Kagney Linn Karter, Rose Red and Maddy O’Reilly, DP Me 2 (2014) for Hard X with Carter Cruise, London Keyes and Jade Stevens, Rocco’s Intimate Initiations (2014) for Evil Angel, Rocco’s Perfect Sex Slaves 8 and 9 (2015-2016), Anal Required 5 (2015) for Evil Angel which earned Veruca a 2016 XBIZ Awards nomination for “Best Scene – Gonzo Release”, Deep Anal Action 2 (2016) for Mike Adriano Media, and 1st Anal Lust (2016) for ArchAngel Productions also starring Anikka Albrite, Jada Stevens and Kendra Lust.
When Veruca first began working within the adult entertainment industry she was a freelance performer. However, by 2012 Veruca had been signed by exclusive adult film talent agent Mark Spiegler. Veruca explained within her Adult DVD Talk interview how she came to be signed as a Spiegler Girl after receiving recommendations from friends;
“everyone was asking me if I was going to get an agent. I had applied to some on-line but I never heard back from anyone. They didn’t like that I was continuing to live in Chicago and I wasn’t willing to move until I had something solid. Everyone on set told me I should get with Mark Spiegler! I thought that would be amazing but what are the chances that that would actually happen? I’m brand new, I don’t even live here yet. But you don’t say ‘no’ to Mark. He’s the best agent in porn but he had a huge waiting list. Luckily, I met a make-up artist who was good friends with him. She told him that he has to meet this girl, she’s an accountant, she’s smart, she’s a great performer… Everything fell into place for me with the right people at the right time. I met with Mark and I told him that if he’ll work with me, I’ll move out here as soon as my lease is up. That was June  and I’ve been with him ever since”.
In June 2012 Veruca featured within her first ever interracial release, School of Black Cock with male porn star Julius Ceazher. This Burning Angel production was nominated for “Best Interracial Release” at the 2013 AVN and XBIZ Awards and received a glowing endorsement from XCritic‘s adult film blogger Rob Perez who stated;
“Joanna Angel simply is one of the great directors of our time who’s films remain unique and fresh, and never pretentious. The focus is always on creating hot sex, she doesn’t take herself too seriously when she wraps around it plot. In other words, she’s not a disgruntled porn director who’d rather be making mainstream movies. School of Black Cock was made with lots of love behind because Joanna loves making porn, loves watching Black men having sex with alt girls, and cares about creating titilating content for her audience, which pretty much includes everyone, not just alt porn lovers. She’s bigger than that now. School of Black Cock is good, sizzling sex with humor but it works. I’m Highly Recommending this one”.
Ever since, Veruca has performed in multiple interracial releases including Cuckold Sessions (2012) with Remy La Croix for Blacks on Blondes, the Zero Tolerance Official Next Friday Parody (2012) which was nominated for “Best Parody” at the 2014 AVN Awards, Anal Bootcamp 2 (2013) for Jules Jordan Video for which her three-way with Lexington Steele and Veronica Avluv was nominated for a 2015 AVN Award, Gangbang Auditions 29 (2014) for Diabolic Video also starring Adriana Chechik, Pretty Petite (2014) for Elegant Angel with Penny Pax, Casey Calvert and Riley Reid which was nominated for “Best Interracial Release” at the 2015 AVN and XBIZ Awards, Straight Outta Chatsworth (2015) with Abella Danger, A.J. Applegate and Kasey Warner for Zero Tolerance, and Prince the Punisher (2015) for Zero Tolerance which was nominated for “Best Group Sex Scene” at the 2016 AVN and XBIZ Awards.
Throughout her adult film career Veruca has also performed in a wide range of popular parody releases including; Godfather: A Dreamzone Parody (2012) for Dreamzone Productions, Sex Toy Story: The XXX Parody (2013) for woodrocket.com which was nominated for “Best Web Premiere” at the 2014 AVN Awards, Man of Steel XXX: An Axel Braun Parody (2013) for Vivid which won “Best Parody: Drama” at the 2014 AVN Awards and “Best Parody: Comic Book” at the 2014 XRCO Awards, as well as Spider-Man XXX 2: An Axel Braun Parody (2014) for Vivid with Casey Calvert and Dani Daniels which won “Best Parody: Super Hero” at the 2014 Nightmoves Awards. Veruca has also received rave reviews for her blowbang scenes as well as her girl/girl sex scenes; most notably her famous blowjob scene in Facialized 1(2014) for Hard X and her girl/girl sex scene with Abigail Mac in Yoga Girls 2 which she enthused about within her Adult DVD Talk interview;
“I loved that scene. I had never met Abigail before. That was an awesome surprise. She’s so sensual and the way that Quasar shoots girl/girl is that he just wants you to have fun. He prefers to not direct anything. He just let us go at each other and she was just as raw sexually as I was. We just had this raw chemistry and that was a super awesome scene”.

In addition to her wealth of adult film award nominations, Veruca has also been sought after for interviews with XFanz, Fleshbot and LA Weekly among countless others. In January 2015 Veruca even launched her exclusive online store VerucaJames.com. Veruca enthused about the launch of her first ever online store in an AVN press release;
“I am so excited to have this platform to be able to connect with my fans on this level…I’m very passionate about this as I was involved in all aspects of this endeavour from layout, product offering, pricing, functionality and branding. Everything from the choice of 8×10 options to the videos I stock was meticulously thought out. I have a lot of very exciting exclusive surprises, contests and specials that we will continue to announce monthly as well. I have a strong team behind me and am looking forward to establishing my foothold in the market place”.
Veruca James : Fetish Lifestyle Market & BDSM Content
Although she has performed within a wealth of mainstream pornographic productions over the years, Veruca is probably best known for her extensive portfolio of femdom, fetish porn and BDSM content. Ever eager to explore her kinkier side, in September 2012 Veruca made her debut on the fetish porn site Kink.com with an online scene titled She’s A Maniac For The Machines that served as part of their Fucking Machines web series.
In the years that followed Veruca has remained a frequent feature within Kink.com‘s Everything Butt, Hardcore Gangbang, Foot Worship, The Upper Floor, Public Disgrace, Sex and Submission, Electro Sluts, Hogtied, Whipped Ass, The Training of O, Dungeon Sex, Device Bondage and Divine Bitches web series and has performed alongside prominent fetish porn stars such as Aiden Starr, Penny Pax, Casey Calvert, Isis Love, Francesca Le, Chanel Preston, Anikka Albrite, Dakota Skye, Bella Rossi and Daisy Ducati among many, many more!
In fact, Veruca filmed her very first gangbang with Kink.com; a five guy sex scene titled Veruca James and The Room of Pure Imagination that had a colourful Willy Wonka theme! Veruca discussed within her XCritic column interview that she isn’t daunted by these gang bang scenes, enthusing how;
“It’s kind of funny because those scenes don’t make me nervous. I would say it’s more, preparing my body for it. making sure I get a lot of sleep, taking really good care of myself. It’s the same thing as an athlete going into a marathon, you’re going to prepare your body to push itself past normal limits…I really am not overwhelmed by a lot of dudes. For some reason it doesn’t scare me. I’m like “Yeah, bring it on. I will take on all of you. [Laughs]”.
Distributed in August 2014 as part of Kink.com‘s Hardcore Gangbang web series, Veruca explained within her Adult DVD Talk interview how Willy Wonka was actually a source of inspiration for her porn star stage name;
“Veruca is from Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka. I kind of had the name before porn. People think it’s kind of weird but I got it when I first started using Twitter about a year before I started. My boyfriend used to tease me that I was really, really bratty and threw temper tantrums about getting what I want. So he told me that I’m like a little Veruca Salt so when I got my twitter name it kind of just stuck. Yeah, I’m a little Veruca. And James came from my fiancé’. I liked the way Veruca James sounded”.
Veruca has even created Kink University instructional videos such as How To Give Mind-blowing Hand jobs which was distributed in June 2016. Veruca has also appeared in multiple fetish, BDSM, orgy and gangbang-themed DVD feature releases including; Veruca James No Limits (2014) for Zero Tolerance which was nominated for “Best Orgy/Gangbang Release” at the 2015 AVN Awards, Maddy O’Reilly’s Submission (2014) for Deviant Entertainment which won “BDSM Release of the Year” at the 2015 XBIZ Awards, Orgy Masters 4 (2014) with Aiden Starr, Chanel Preston , Maddy O’Reilly, Phoenix Marie and Romi Rain for Chris Streams Productions which was nominated for “Best Orgy/Gangbang Release” at the 2015 AVN Awards, and Lisa Ann’s Black Out 2 (2014) for Lisa Ann Productions which was nominated for “Best Group Sex Scene” at the 2015 AVN Awards and Whore’ers of Halloween (2015) for Porn Fidelity.
In recent years Veruca has performed in Twisted Passions 14, 15 and 18 (2015-2016) for Girlfriends Films with Prinzzess, Chanel Preston, Lana Roades, Aidra Fox and Dani Daniels, as well as Dominations (2015) for James Deen Productions with August Ames and Abella Danger which earned Veruca a 2016 AVN Awards nomination for “Most Outrageous Sex Scene”.
Veruca has even featured in a September 2015 Bustle article titled 5 Porn Stars Reveal Their Kinkiest Scenes, And They Are Not For The Faint Of Heart. Veruca loves participating in kinky sex-capades within her private life and on-screen. For instance, when she was asked to name the kinkiest sexual experience she has ever enjoyed, Veruca told Captain Jack during her Adult DVD Talk interview that;
“Other than fucking in public, I shot a custom video where I had a giant facial and walked down Hollywood Blvd. in the middle of day. That sticks in my head because at the time I was so scared. I’ve never really been legitimately scared of having sex in public before because you can explain it that you’re drunk and we’re not trying to expose ourselves to children or anything. I always figured I can get out of it. But this one, I thought that I am legitimately doing something that I know I should not be doing. It was pretty awesome. (laughs) We walked by several different people and they didn’t notice because they walk with their heads down but at the end and don’t notice things around them but there was this guy at the end who noticed and Damon (James) caught it on video…
Public sex is definitely a fetish. I love bondage, rope bondage is my favorite but I’ve gotten into metal and leather and other types of bondage. Particularly because I’m such a controlled person, the loss of control you have when your bound is like a huge adrenaline rush for me. Other fetishes is multiple cocks, probably why I love blowbangs. Blowbangs would be a fetish, wouldn’t it? I also love DP’s. I haven’t done nearly enough DP’s this year”.
Veruca James: APAC Board Member & Adult Film Advocacy Work
In addition to shooting kinky online sex scenes and popular DVD feature releases, Veruca James has never been afraid to speak her mind about important issues which adversely impact upon the lives and careers of adult film professionals. For example, in previous interviews Veruca has been happy to discuss her ongoing work as part of the board for APAC (Adult Performer Advocacy Committee). As Veruca advocated within her XCritic column interview;
“I’m on the board for APAC (Adult Performer Advocacy Committee). It’s an organization for performers by performers, and we help to promote health and safety standards on set and in their personal life. We work on education; so STD education as well as education on how to properly manage your finances, doctor resources, and we also have been working on the OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration) legislation and working with OSHA so that performers can be protected by the OSHA legislation with actual standards that makes sense for us to still be able to do our jobs. That’s a huge thing because it’s never happened in porn. it’s completely new…and it’s long overdue. Performers have needed to have their rights look after. They’ve always needed it and haven’t really had it, and because the industry is thought of as “underground” per se, performers didn’t always feel like they could go to OSHA, and they were being kept on set for 18 hours and there was no toilet, there was no water and things like that. But performers, just like every other worker, has the right to a safe and reasonable work environment”.
Veruca has also used her skills as a performer and her social media presence to highlight important issues such as Measure B; a law which requires condoms to be used in all vaginal and anal pornographic sex scenes that are filmed in Los Angeles, California. In November 2012 Veruca even performed in a Funny or Die video mocking Measure B titled Thank You From The Porn Industry which was featured in a Huffington Post article. Veruca also took the time within her April 2013 Sex.com interview to highlight how;
“Measure B is a completely unnecessary and unwarranted attack on porn. First and foremost, I don’t believe it’s constitutional to tell me that I’m obligated by law to use condoms, dental dams, face masks or gloves during sex with anyone. Measure B would require that Damon and I use condoms when we webcam together in the privacy of our home, that’s so absurd…
There is no legitimate proof that our testing protocols are ineffective, so it doesn’t make any sense to start assuming that we as adults, need law enforcement to act on our behalf and force us to do what is our personal responsibility. There are blogs all over the place from people within the industry discussing all the specifics about why Measure B makes no sense, but really it’s basic…
It’s also nearly impossible to actually enforce the Measure anyway. People have just stopped filing for permits, most porn is shot in private residences anyway. Or people have moved their shoots outside of LA county or some even to Vegas…
It hasn’t affected that much other than just annoying everyone with it even being discussed. I haven’t shot any less because of it and I have yet to use a condom in porn and there still are no serious concerns about massive STD outbreaks”.
Veruca James : Married Life, WoodRocket.com Web Series & Future Plans
Even before she became an adult film performer, Veruca has dated male porn star Damon James. The pair have been dating since 2010 and became engaged in December 2012. Talking about their relationship within her 2013 Sex.com interview, Veruca mentioned how;
“We got engaged in December 2012, so I’m still enjoying showing off my ring as a newly engaged girl. Damon and I met in November 2010, so yes, we were together for a while before we both began performing. Although, from the beginning we were always excited about taking photos during sex and filming our sex”.
When asked during this 2013 Sex.com interview about why she thinks their relationship has stood the test of time, Veruca explained that;
“Communication and effort, just like any other relationship. I think people get hung up on the monogamy issue. They exclusively associate monogamy with only have sex with one person. But, for us personally, we believe that monogamy is associated with a commitment and a relationship with one person. We believe in sharing our sexuality together and being completely honest about our desires. If one of us is interested in having sex with another person we talk about it, but not like sit down serious “we need to talk, talk” it’s more so incorporated in our flirting with each other…neither of us has sex outside of our relationship except when performing in professional porn. If we decide we both want to have sex with another man/woman, then it is always done together”.
Since 2011 Veruca and Damon have also co-managed a blog titled Naked In Public which evolved into a WoodRocket.com web series in 2013. This risqué blog and web series chronicles Veruca and Damon’s indulging in their kinkiest sexual fantasies; most of which involve stripping and having sex in public! Veruca discussed the evolution of this raunchy couples/comedy/adult film blogging project within her 2013 Sex.com interview and conveyed how;
“The blog started around January 2011 and it was updated by Damon with photos of us out and about in Chicago and on vacation, fucking, eating, flashing my tits/pussy, getting girls to flash theirs and all that. Our good friend and producer for WoodRocket recognized that our life really is as wild as we portray it and he asked us if we would want to bring our blog to life by filming videos of our craziness”.
Happily married, eager to film more mainstream porn and BDSM content, there seems to be no end in sight for Veronica’s raunchy adult film career!
In fact, when she was asked about her future plans during her Adult DVD Talk interview Veruca told Captain Jack that;
“I want this to last as long as I am having fun doing it. So it’s hard to put a number on that. As long as I’m enjoying performing, I will do it forever! But eventually, I’d love to have my own thing. Right now, Damon and I have our own web series on www.woodrocket.com We write all our own skits and we direct them. It’s a blend of Veruca and me in my personal life. What our life is actually like and I love that. We still get paid to do it, which is awesome. I would like to develop on that and continue making our own stuff. Hopefully, eventually, we can hire our own friends that we want to work with and then we can have sex with them too!”.
Veruca further elaborated within her LA Weekly interview how;
“I’d like to start building a more diversified portfolio. Eventually I’d like to have my own company, and do my own shooting. Something where I could keep my own books”.
