Jennifer Welles was an American porn star chiefly active in the soft- and hardcore genres of the 1970s, although she began her acting career in the late 1960s in the sexploitation genre.

Welles was also a fetish model for such magazines as Bizarre. Using the alias "Liza Duran," she appeared in a variety of softcore sexploitation and "roughie" grindhouse films produced in New York. Some of these include: Sex by Advertisement (1967), Career Bed, Submission, and This Sporting House directed by Henri Pachard (all from 1969).

Welles appeared in many films, the best known being Inside Jennifer Welles (1977), which she is also credited with having directed (although the film was actually anonymously directed by sex-exploitation veteran Joseph W. Sarno).[citation needed] She also appeared in some mainstream films, most notably The Groove Tube opposite Chevy Chase.

Welles won the Erotica Award for Best Actress in 1977 for the film Little Orphan Sammy, and was the editor of Eros, The Magazine of Decadent Sophistication, in that same year.
