Christy Canyon is an American born porn star. Her father was of Armenian descent and her mother of Italian descent. She was born on the 17th day of June in 1966 in California. She is one of the living legends of the porn industry, her prowess earning her a spot in Erotica's Hall Of Fame.
Christy Canyon did not set out to become a porn actress, but one day, as she stood outside her apartment, she was approached by a stranger. This stranger was actor Greg Rome who told her she had an amazing body, perfect for modeling. This was back in 1984.
After her encounter with Greg Rome, Christy's interest peaked one night and she decided to make the call. She began with modeling for some notable men's magazines like Hustler and High Society, making the cover of said magazines on multiple issues. Christy became a porn actress during what has come to be termed porn's golden age. This was back in the 80's when porn, as an industry, was still in its early years. Girls were all natural without any fake nails or implants and the guys had no help from any performance enhancement drugs or injections. The passion was real and raw, evident in every scene. This was an era before the internet paved way for free porn when one had to pay almost 100 dollars for a VHS tape just for the opportunity to see people having sex.
Ron Jeremy is a name known to all who have knowledge of the legends of the porn industry. Christy was fortunate enough to star alongside Ron Jeremy in her first porn film, Swedish Erotica No. 57. Under contract with Vivid, Christy went on to make over 200 films until she finally retired from the industry back in 1997. In her golden years, Christy never shied away from showing off her goddess body, graced with amazing tits while on set. She has featured in countless videos, ranging from anal to lesbian, all with spectacular scenes and an unrivaled passion. Christy's first lesbian encounter was with Ginger Lynn, an experience she describes as one of her greatest. Their nude bodies and perfect tits coupled with raw stamina and passion make all their lesbian videos a marvel to behold.
The porn industry is one of the biggest industries in the world. The most popular porn sites receive more online traffic than say for instance Netflix. The industry is valued to be worth billions of dollars. For this reason, all the actors and actresses to whom such success is accredited are often rewarded. Some of the awards Christy Canyon has received includes:
Christy retired from the porn industry back in 1997. However, despite retirement, her videos continue to sell even now. She didn't quit dancing until 2001 and later she published her autobiography titled Lights, Camera, Sex in which she talks about her experience in the industry with some of the biggest names like Ron Jeremy and Ginger Lynn. She also describes some behind the scenes experiences and a few celebrity encounters. Today, Christy is a successful radio host, a role she has enjoyed for over a decade. For instance, she had her own show on Playboy Radio where she would give advice to the up and coming porn actors.
Christy Canyon is arguably one of the best porn actresses to have ever lived. AVN itself rated her among the top 20 adult film actresses. She might have had the advantage of starring in porn at a time when the industry was relatively small and growing, but her glorious nude body, breathtaking tilts and great scenes had a role to play as well.
