Bobbi Starr (born April 6, 1983), is the stage name of an American pornographic actress.[1] In 2011 and in 2013, Starr was named by CNBC as one of the 12 most popular stars in porn.[2][3] Starr also became a director for Evil Angel. Her first title, Bobbi's World, is a female POV movie.[4]

Early life and education[edit]

Starr was born and raised in San Jose, California.[1][5] Her family is of Italian and Hungarian descent. Starr graduated from San Jose State University with a music degree and plays the oboe. While at San Jose State, Starr worked as a nanny and private music teacher and was assistant music librarian at the university.[5][6][7]

Starr wants to study pre-med, with the aim of becoming a gynecologist. Her intent is to work within the adult entertainment industry, where she has identified a lack of female gynecologists.[8][9]

Career[edit]

Starr started 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.[6]

Appearances[edit]

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 blogs for Popporn.com and writes a column for Fox Magazine called "Adventures in Porny Land".[11]

Starr was cast for the movie adaptation of James Sallis's novel, Drive, which was released in 2011,[12] although her scene was cut from the final edit.

Personal life[edit]

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."[6]

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

As of July 2, 2013 she has announced on her blog that she is expecting a child and has found someone that "I can spend the rest of my life with" [14]
