Monica Mayhem (born Caroline Pickering;[1] 14 March 1978) is an Australian pornographic actress, exotic dancer[3] and singer.

Mayhem attended Kenmore State High School but was expelled;[1] she has said about her teenage years: "I was very rebellious, I had a rough upbringing with an abusive alcoholic mother... I had no self-esteem, was shy around new people and basically thought the whole world was against me. I used to get into so many fights when I was younger."[2]

Before pornographic films, Mayhem worked in Sydney in finance and then in London as an exotic dancer in night-clubs.[2] In December 2000, she moved to the United States to begin acting in pornographic films. In 2002, she won the XRCO Award for Starlet of the Year[3][4] and the FOXE Award for "Vixen of the Year".[5]

Outside pornographic films, Mayhem is a singer/guitarist in an all-girl metal band, "Sweet Avenge".[2][3]

In 2008, she appeared in a small role in the Sex and the City film, in which she is seen through a window having sex with Samantha's neighbour Dante.

Mayhem wrote an autobiography entitled Absolute Mayhem: Confessions of an Aussie Porn Star,[3][6] which was released by Random House Australia in 2009 in her native Australia and by Skyhorse Publishing in North America the following year.[7][8] A French translation was published in 2011 by Camion Noir.[citation needed]

In August 2010, she announced that she had retired from pornographic acting, after over 400 films,[9] and that she was engaged to a Sydney vet.[10]
