CareerEdit

Klass began starring in pornographic movies around 1997, becoming the best known collaborator with director Seymore Butts, aka Adam Glasser, to whom she was once engaged.[2][3] Klass had a tattoo on her rear reading "Seymore Butts." However, following an acrimonious break up in 2000 she has since had it covered with a dolphin.[4] Tampa Tushy Fest, Part 1., a 1998 video featuring Klass in a lesbian fisting scene with Chloe, resulted in Glasser being charged with obscenity.[4] Glasser pleaded public nuisance charge as part of an agreement with the Los Angeles city attorney's office on 20 March 2002. He also paid a fine of 1000 dollars.[5]

Other venturesEdit
