Dana DeArmond (born June 16, 1979) is an American pornographic actress who entered the industry in 2005.[2]

Biography[edit]

DeArmond grew up in Orlando, Florida[3] and during her teen years was a figure skater; she was in the same skating club as Sunny Lane.[3] DeArmond had worked as a street dancer at Disney World and as a stripper in Florida and California before doing bondage play on the Web and then hardcore movies.[citation needed]

DeArmond had gained popularity before her porn career, as an internet personality with over 300,000 friends on Myspace.[4] She asserts on her MySpace profile that TheInternetsGirlfriend.com is her official website and that she is not affiliated with any other website.[5]

Agent Mark Spiegler initially tried to convince DeArmond not to pursue a career in pornography before he agreed to represent her.[6]

DeArmond admits to having social anxiety, stating, "I made my life so I don’t have to come into contact with lots of people except for once or twice a year when I sign." [7] Dana dealt with her social anxiety by spending a lot of time on MySpace and an "Indie Rock" chat room on AOL.

DeArmond has directed two documentary porn movies in which she helps young people whom she meets on the web break into the business, called Dana DeArmond Does the Internet and Dana DeArmond's Role Modeling.[8] She has also guest lectured on the adult industry for classes at University of California, Irvine and University of California, Santa Barbara.[9]

DeArmond was one of the models featured in Michael Grecco's photo book, Naked Ambition: An R Rated Look at an X Rated Industry[10] and Dave Naz's book L.A. Bondage.[11] After DeArmond's house and belongings were destroyed in a fire in January 2007, the adult industry participated in several fundraising activities to help replace what she lost.[12] DeArmond co-hosted the 2010 Urban X Awards with porn actress Misty Stone.[13]

In January 2014, DeArmond, Asa Akira, Chanel Preston, and Jessie Andrews were featured in a Cosmopolitan article titled "4 Porn Stars on How They StayFit".[14]
