Victoria Paris (born November 22, 1960) is the stage name of an award winning former American pornographic actress and men's club featured dancer. She is also an AVN Hall of Fame inductee.

Career[edit]

In 1988, Paris started her work in adult entertainment as a mud wrestler and then worked as a nude model before getting into adult films.[2] Her first pornographic scene was with male co-star Randy West.[3]

Starting in 1989, Paris has appeared in productions for studios such as Caballero Home Video, Elegant Angel, Evil Angel, VCA Pictures, and the Zane Entertainment Group. She made over 150 adult films, including The Chameleon, Beauty & the Beast II, The New Barbarians, and The Seduction of Mary. According to the Internet Adult Film Database, she retired from performing in 2002, but has continued to appear in new releases as recent as 2013 via archived footage.[1]

Paris also traveled to clubs and was a dancer. After her performances she would have question and answer sessions with her fans.[4] She performed as half of a duo act called Top Katz.[5]

She has one writing credit to her name for the 1997 feature Decadence which stars Paris and personal friend and fellow tour dancer, Ashlyn Gere.[6] Inspired by the lack of having a video to promote while touring, Paris and Gere got together with VCA Pictures and directors John T. Bone and Michael Ninn to develop the video. The production is based on the fantasies of Paris and Gere.[5]

Paris also had minor roles in mainstream productions such as the 1990 film Time Barbarians.[7] She also appeared on the cable television talk show Talking Blue.[8]
