Early life and educationEdit

Starr was born in Santa Clara, California.[1] Her family is of Italo-Albanian and Hungarian descent.[3] Starr graduated from San Jose State University with a music degree and plays the oboe. However, she has stated she pursued a career in pornography rather than in music due to her "curious nature" and becoming inspired after having watched a movie featuring Belladonna (whom she later befriended in real life).[4][5]

Starr expressed an ambition to study pre-med, with the aim of becoming a gynecologist. Her intent was to work within the adult entertainment industry, where she identified a lack of female gynecologists.[6][7]

CareerEdit

Starr began her pornography career at the age of 23. She met someone who introduced her to the adult industry in San Francisco, California, but it took a year before she decided to enter the industry. Her initial works were bondage and submission scenes for Internet-based companies. She then transitioned to shooting various types of scenes for production companies in Los Angeles. Starr has appeared as the box-cover model for many movies by companies such as Red Light District Video and Combat Zone.[5]

In 2011 and in 2013, Starr was listed on CNBC.com as one of the 12 most popular stars in porn.[8][9]

Starr was a finalist for the reality show America's Next Hot Porn Star, a series set up similarly to America's Next Top Model.[10] She blogged for Popporn.com and wrote a column for Fox Magazine called "Adventures in Porny Land".[11]

Personal lifeEdit

Starr considers herself a pro-sex feminist. Even though she acknowledges that some feminists consider pornography to be degrading to women, Starr asserts, "I don't feel degraded because it is my decision. I know that if I did ever feel degraded or feel uncomfortable, all I need to do is say no and it would stop. I don't think something where women have so much control in the situation can be considered degrading towards women."[5] She does not label her sexual orientation, but she has stated that she considers herself "more gay than straight" and that she chooses to only "experiment" with men.[12]

Starr is a video gamer, and has noted Zork: Grand Inquisitor, Grim Fandango, and The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind as her favorite games.[13]

On July 2, 2013, Starr announced on her blog that she was expecting a child and had found someone with whom she could "spend the rest of [her] life."[14] Although she initially indicated that she would take a temporary hiatus, Starr rarely updated her social media accounts or blog thereafter. On August 31, 2015, Starr's business partner released a statement that Starr had moved on to "bigger and more important things,"[15] and her website was duly closed down.
