Widely regarded as one of the most prolific performers in the industry, magnificent MILF star India Summer is a fan-favorite porn star, multi-talented director and seasoned swinger who has been taking the adult film industry by storm since 2006.
Born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa, India Summer has mixed Irish, German, English and Native American heritage. India Summer has always been an athletic individual; running track and cross-country whilst in high school as well as working as a lifeguard throughout her high school and college years. After graduating from high school, India earned her B.A. in Elementary Education before she spent the next six years working within the finance industry. Talking about her younger years in her January 2014 Paradise Theatre XXX interview, India Summer divulged that;
“I grew up in a rural suburb of Des Moines in Iowa. I lived a very normal, boring life. I co-managed a hippie store while attending college and I received a BA in Education in 1997, which I determined was not to be my chosen path. I worked in Finance for 6 years while living and experimenting with an open relationship and lifestyle with my partner. Partners and people would mention I should model or do “porn” and finally I decided to try to make the leap into the adult video world. I felt like it would be something fun and adventurous and after a handful of movies I found that I truly enjoyed it”.
India Summer first began working within the adult film industry when she was 29 years old after several years of exploring her sexuality through some saucy swinging sessions with her husband. India Summer discussed this progression from swinging to shooting sex scenes in her March 2013 Creative Loafing interview, explaining how;
“My husband and I had been swinging and filming our own stuff and just exploring my sexuality. I was 22 when I met him, so I didn’t have much experience. We got into swinging and it was awesome, so we thought, why not do this professionally. We would get paid for it and get to have sex with really amazing actors. Why not? Amazingly, I put it online that I was available and people called. Then I ended up in LA. It was that easy. I wasn’t expecting it to happen like that, or to happen that fast”.
As India Summer further elaborated within her Hot Movies For Her interview;
“The long version is that my personal sexual exploration and journey lead me to the adult business. I had quite a few years of lifestyle and swinging experience prior to entering the industry. A lot of the swingers I met would remark that I should be in porn, complimenting my looks and skills. Some people in my life at that time would also suggest that I should model. A synthesis of those suggestions made me start considering the industry. I remember saying to myself, why not “swing” with some of the hottest and most skilled lovers in the world and get paid for it? I actually remember thinking that. Of course swinging and doing an industry shoot are completely different animals, but at the time that’s what I was thinking”.
India Summer : Adult Film Career
Although she filmed some initial sex scenes in December 2005, India Summer officially began working in the adult film industry in the fall of 2006 and some of her earliest porn productions include America’s Next Top MILF (2006) for White Ghetto, Lust Filled Lesbians (2006) for Mile High, My Hot Wife Is Fucking Blackzilla 8 (2006) for Hush Hush Entertainment and My First Sex Teacher 6 (2006) for Naughty America.
India Summer chose her porn star stage name based upon her love of the song Indian Summer by The Doors. For the next few years India started shooting a wide range of MILF, girl/girl, hardcore and interracial porn productions such as There Goes The Neighbourhood (2007) for Penthouse, Face Full Of Diesel 5 (2008) for Digital Sin, MILF-O-Maniacs 2 (2008) for Wicked Pictures and My First Girlfriend (2008) for Penthouse. India Summer loves experimenting within a broad spectrum of gonzo porn productions and feature releases, conveying within her January 2014 Paradise Theatre XXX interview how;
“As an adult performer I truly enjoy the variety of work I am able to experience from day to day. From Gonzo scenes to Features to BDSM…. They all fill a different aspect for me and allow me to grow in ways I never imagined. I enjoy attempting to act and do dialog in features. I also like just showing up to a gonzo scene, and without much set-up, getting right down to business. I also found that I enjoy being pushed to my maximum limits within the BDSM realm…
Just about any of the standard faire you see in adult performance I am “comfortable” with and several things that aren’t on the usual menu. From vanilla B/G or G/G to BDSM to Hypno to Group or GB, I can feel comfortable in any number of extremes depending on the people I’m working with and for, but the most comfortable is probably being dominated by a talented high intensity man or woman”.
In fact, throughout her prolific porn star career India Summer has filmed some truly sensational femdom, BDSM and fetish web clips for the fan-favorite fetish lifestyle network Kink.com. If you’ve been eager to explore some of India Summer’s raunchiest sex scenes then you have to check out her first ever Fucking Machines solo sex-toy shoot in May 2008 and her sizzling An Open Invitation: A Real Swinger’s Party In San Francisco swingers themed sex fest for Private Independent. This pioneering porn production was uploaded via Kink Features in March 2011 and India Summer’s stunning sex scenes earned her the coveted title of “Best Actress” at the 2011 AVN Awards. India Summer loved shooting these vast group sex scenes for An Open Invitation: A Real Swinger’s Party In San Francisco and has enthusiastically stated in her Hot Movies For Her interview that;
“I feel like I had great chemistry with my partners. I’ve known James Deen for quite awhile now and we have worked together several times. My familiarity and chemistry with James helped in the sense that he played my husband and we have that real history already behind us. As I said, It was the first time I worked with Lorelei and I loved it. She was a real turn-on for me and I LOVED working with her. As for direction from Ilana, she would get us pointed in the right direction, give us the seed of the scene and then let the actors develop the scene together, making adjustments as necessary. We weren’t just reading off scripts or having to be held by the hand. I think that the approach we had on set inspired the creative spark and a sense of team work and camaraderie that manifests on screen…
One thing I learned about myself as a swinger and adult performer is that I am a true exhibitionist! I feed off of the energy of people watching, whether it’s the crew at a shoot or anyone else who happens to be on set that day. To perform in front of and along with the 127 experienced swingers was an absolute thrill for me. You could even say it was kind of a “Superbowl” atmosphere. As far as I’m concerned they could put bleachers in for all of my shoots…
As much as I enjoy performing in all kinds of genres, it was always a goal of mine to be involved in a movie and production of this quality, one that directly or even obliquely relates to my own personal journey and story”.
If you can’t get enough of India Summer’s sizzling swinger-themed sex scenes and fetish porn productions then we also recommend watching her Mile High DVD sequel releases Swinger 1, 3 and 4 (2012-2014) with squirt queens Lily Carter, Allie Haze, Veronica Avluv, Dana DeArmond, Chanel Preston and Adrianna Luna, her amazing Anal Sluts femdom pegging three-way with devilish dommes Francesca Le and Kirsten Price that was filmed for Kink.com‘s Everything Butt web series in August 2013, her four-part India Summer’s Principles of Servitude sexy submissive saga that was unveiled via Kink.com’s Training of O web series between June and September 2014, her The Stranded Submissive outdoor BDSM shoot with James Deen which was shot for Sex & Submission in September 2014 and her most recent The Initiation Of India Summer shoot with Kayla West and Karlo Karrera that was first released via The Upper Floor in November 2014; not to be missed!
India Summer : Girlfriends Films Contract Girl & Directorial Debut
A defining moment in India Summer’s adult film career came in 2009 when she signed an exclusive girl/girl performance contract with prominent production company Girlfriends Films. India Summer was thrilled to become a Girlfriends Films contract girl and ardently expressed within her XCritic column interview how;
“2009 has been a really great year for me! Thank you for noticing. Definitely the zenith of my career so far. I am kind of uncomfortable with the word “star” and me being used in the same sentence.. When I hear that word I tend to think of people like Nina or Stormy …but thank you, I feel very flattered. Why did I sign with GFF? I am very bi-sexual and I really enjoyed working with the crew and people at GFF. I love Prinzzess and RayVeness and I have great chemistry with both of them. I really enjoy the girl-girl genre and it’s great getting to work with all of the ladies! As far as having a contract… You can ask any performer, it’s great to know where your next job and pay check are coming from. It gives your life a sense of stability as opposed to wondering if and when you will get your next booking”.
In the years that followed India Summer starred within several best-selling lesbian feature releases for Girlfriends Films such as Lesbian Sex 1 (2011) and Lesbian Sex 9 (2012) for which India’s saucy sex scenes with her real-life partner Prinzzess were nominated for “Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene” at the 2012 and 2013 AVN Awards, Mysterious Ways (2013) with Maddy O’Reilly, Remy LaCroix, Alektra Blue and Bonnie Rotten that was nominated for “Best Comedy” at the 2015 AVN Awards, Mother Daughter Exchange Club 27 (2013) with Staci Silverstone, Tanya Tate and Veruca James which was nominated for “Best Older Woman/Younger Girl Release” at the 2014 AVN Awards and Business of Women (2015) also starring Samantha Rone, Charlotte Stokely, Shyla Jennings, Abigail Mac and Vanessa Veracruz that won “All-Girl Release of the Year” at the 2016 XBIZ Awards; the list goes on!
As well as starring in these critically acclaimed Girlfriends Films porn productions, India Summer has excelled behind the career as a multi-talented director and script writer. India Summer made her directorial debut with the Girlfriends Films DVD title Perfect Fit (2011) also starring Zoey Holloway, Julia Ann, Ariella Ferrera, Nicki Hunter and Prinzzess. Upon discussing her future directing and performance career plans within her Hot Movies For Her interview, India Summer mentioned that;
“Ideally I’d like to keep growing through a variety of challenging and stimulating roles, and transition from being strictly a performer to directing and producing my own ideas and projects. I’d like to bring my own visions to fruition”.
India Summer : Popular Parody Performances & Award Nominations
Aside from being a magnificent MILF star and girl/girl performer, India Summer has garnered a devoted global fan base due to her scene-stealing moments in numerous big budget parody porn productions. If you’re a fan of India Summer’s captivating comedic talents then we recommend watching Drill Baby Drill (2009) for Penthouse within which India Summer parodied 2008 Republican Vice President nominee Sarah Palin, The Addams Family XXX (2011) for Exquisite that featured India sharing a saucy group sex scene with Alison Tyler, Charley Chase, Bill Bailey and Richie Calhoun, Men In Black: A Hardcore Parody (2012) for Wicked Pictures that showcased India in an epic group sex scene with Alektra Blue, Jessica Drake, Kaylani Lei, Misty Stone, Eric Masterson, Jack Vegas, Marco Rivera, Randy Spears and Tommy Gunn, Graduate XXX (2011) for Exile Pictures, Not Married With Children 1 and 2 (2009-2010) for Hustler Video and Star Trek: The Next Generation: A XXX Parody (2011) for Digital Sin also starring seasoned parody porn superstars Dana DeArmond, Bobbi Starr, April O’Neill and Kimberly Kane. India Summer has loved shooting these popular parody releases and mentioned in her April 2011 Luke Is Back interview that;
“Drill Baby Drill was really the one for me. I received a 2010 AVN Best Actress nomination for that movie and I think that is the role that really got some people to take notice of me. I threw myself into that role and studied and prepared as much as I could for it. Another thing about that movie is that I was allowed to add several jokes and some of my own dialogue to the script. I am very anti-Palin and being from the opposite side of the political spectrum I relished the opportunity to mock her…I loved doing “Not Married” too. I love that show and I watched it growing up. I really enjoy doing the adult parodies because it gives you the chance to play some of your favorite characters. As an actress, I appreciate having a script, a plot and interesting settings and sets. I like that these type of movies give me a chance to express my other talents as well as my sexual talents”.
During this time India Summer began to star in a series of critically acclaimed Adam & Eve parody releases such as Beverly Hillbillies XXX (2011) that won “Parody Release of the Year: Comedy” at the 2012 XBIZ Awards, Grindhouse XXX: A Double Feature (2011) with Alexis Ford, Britney Amber and Andy San Dimas that won “Best Comedy” at the 2012 AVN Awards and Dallas: A XXX Parody (2012) which won “Best Parody: Drama” at the 2013 XRCO Awards. India has since performed in a wealth of superhero themed parody productions for Extreme Comixxx and Vivid such as The Incredible Hulk: A XXX Porn Parody (2011), Supergirl XXX (2011) and Captain America XXX (2011). India has even starred in Barbarella: A Kinky Parody (2014) for Kink Studios that was nominated for “Best Parody: Comic Book” at the 2015 XRCO Awards and which enabled India to collaborate with such famous fetish performers as Aiden Starr, Chanel Preston, Maitresse Madeline Marlowe, Lorelei Lee and DragonLily among many others.
Most recently, India Summer has showcased her acting talents in Brad Armstrong’s Wicked Pictures parody release Magic Mike XXXL (2015) alongside Asa Akira, Adriana Chechik, Jessica Drake, Kendra Lust, Katrina Jade, Misty Stone and Brandy Aniston.

After all, as India Summer enthusiastically stated during her April 2011 Luke Is Back interview;
“I felt like I was the Queen of Fuckingham Palace! Honestly, I don’t do the movies to try to win awards. I do them because I enjoy doing them and it’s what I am good at. Because I entered into the industry later than most women, I never really thought that I would be in contention for awards or get the kind of roles that get you noticed. I feel so fortunate and gratified to have been recognized AVN. Winning a “Porn Academy Award” is the cherry on the cake of my career”.
India Summer : Mainstream Media Appearances & Recent Projects
When she isn’t performing in porn, India Summer has been starring in a steady stream of mainstream TV series such as Sons of Anarchy (2008-2014), Dexter (2006-2013), Reno 911! (2003-2009) and Girls of Sunset Place (2012). If you keep an eye out you will also spot India Summer in the National Lampoon comedy feature film Homo Erectus (2007). India Summer discussed her acting role within Sons of Anarchy during her March 2013 Creative Loafing interview and explained how shooting these scenes paved the way for her to pursue several more mainstream acting roles. As India Summer puts it in her own words;
“We played porn stars actually. My friend Jordan Kingsley called me up early on when they were filming and said, “We’re looking for girls and we would like to have you. Can you do it?” The pay is never comparable to what we usually make but it’s mainstream. The show is fabulous and of course I said yes. I think we ended up in three or four seasons, which was amazing. It was great being around all of those people. That led me to appearing on an episode of Dexter, which was awesome…I got fake boned by Quinn. But, I wanted to get murdered so hard. That would have been amazing … My scene came when Quinn’s woman broke up with him so he went on a crazy sex binge…I was montaged, which was great. It was awesome just being in that atmosphere. They take it very seriously and it was a closed set because there was partial nudity. It is funny to see the different dynamic between shooting a nude scene in mainstream and porn”.
In recent years India Summer has earned critical acclaim for her starring role in the Adam & Eve feature release Marriage 2.0 (2015). Starring alongside Ryan Driller and Mickey Mod, India Summer’s scene-stealing moments in Marriage 2.0 earned her the prestigious “Best Actress – Feature Movie” and “Best Scene – Feature Release” accolades at the 2016 XBIZ Awards. What’s more, Marriage 2.0 also won “Best Polyamory Movie”, “Best Director: Feature” (Paul Deeb) and ” Best Marketing Campaign – Individual Project” at the 2016 AVN Awards as well as “Best Cinematography” (Alex Ladd) and “Marketing Campaign of the Year” at the 2016 XBIZ Awards. India Summer loves shooting these types of intimate, couples oriented sex scenes and has sincerely expressed in previous interviews that;
“For me, one of the most personally satisfying types of fan mail I receive is from couples who watch my scenes together to set the mood for themselves. As a performer it’s nice to hear when you are helping to bring people together. I feel like the adult industry is stepping it up quality and production wise. It really is branching out in a lot of exciting directions. You can find just about anything out there to suit your tastes and quality demands”.
