Chanel Preston was in college and performing at strip clubs around the country when she met a woman who asked if she’d ever considered doing porn.
Preston, who was 23 at the time and living in Hawaii, had been in and out of college for about three years, refusing to take out loans and only attending when she had the cash to cover tuition. She considered herself “open-minded and adventurous” but not necessarily a “very hypersexual person.” Nevertheless, she decided to give porn a shot.
Today, Preston is one of the most well known actors in the adult film industry. She was a 2012 Penthouse Pet and has more than 250 adult films under her belt. But many of her fans want to know more — specifically, her real name.
“I don’t know why they can’t understand this is a fantasy and we’re not here to be your friend,” Preston told The Huffington Post.
