21 of The Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars

0

Want to know which BDSM porn stars are the most famous?

Bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism….once a very niche fetish for which you would have to find specialist performers and studios, BDSM is now far more mainstream than it once was. As a result, the stars of this genre of adult content now enjoy far greater appeal across a wide range of audiences. In fact, many of the ‘top’ porn stars from across Europe and North America have, at some stage, tried their hand with a little bit of kinky bondage action. But which names make the most appeal to both the BDSM community as well as mainstream porn fans?

In this feature, we give you our run down of the most famous 21 BDSM porn stars including some crossover stars and some specialist kinksters. Is your favorite performer here?

What Makes a BDSM Porn Star Famous?

The thing about fame is that it isn’t easy to measure when you aren’t in the mainstream. With the adult entertainment industry there are plenty of awards ceremonies that celebrate the most prolific, most watched and most memorable performers. However, when it comes to porn stars who specialize in fetish markets, the task is not as easy. Whilst various attempts have been made to replicate this kind of recognition, kink awards (like kinky sex) remains very much on the periphery of the industry.

BDSM Porn Stars

That being said, of all the ‘fetish’ communities, BDSM is one that has enjoyed a renewed interest when it comes to mainstream porn audiences. Like it, or loathe it but the ’50 Shades Effect’ has helped provide more interest in this fetish which means more money….more porn and more porn stars to choose from.

Yes, the last few decades have seen far more mainstream porn stars tackling BDSM in their performances.

So, how have we come up with our list of the most famous BDSM porn stars? Glad you asked….we decided to spitball the names of those stars of the BDSM porn screen for an ultimate long list which we then whittled down to our top 21, based on several factors including how well known these stars are both inside the fet-community and to a wider porn audience, how many BDSM movies they’ve performed in and the quality of these performances. We also factored in viewing stats across some of the larger porn tube hosting sites and applied our own secret formula relating to their enduring appeal, or X factor.

21 Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars

There will no doubt be arguments over the final list we’ve put together so, go ahead, tell us who you would have placed in the top 21 most famous BDSM porn stars….we’ll let you know if they made our long list. But, for the meantime, we hope you agree with us that these stars of BDSM porn are highly deserving of our accolades.

21. Kendra Spade

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars kendra spade

A relative newcomer to the industry, Kendra Spade started shooting amateur porn in 2017 before starting work as a professional performer with Kink. Her first shoot was for the Sex and Submission brand which she filmed with some big names in the field, James Mogul, Maya Kendrick and Markus Dupree.

Strictly submissive (for now?), Spade is of Filipino descent and is also working for plenty of larger studios gaining a big mainstream following.

She was voted Best New Starlet at the XCritic Awards in 2018 and looks set to have a good career ahead of her if she keeps up the good work. We only hope that she doesn’t forget her roots in the kink community.

You can catch some of her best scenes on the Kink network but she also has a range of clips available through the main tube platforms.

20. Christina Carter

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars christina carter

Also known as Celenea Roxx and now aged 43, Christina Carter is a long-serving performer in the fetish porn industry. Starting out in 2003, she has been producing more content with Kink over the last few years but has also worked with studios such as Family.xxx and Hit The Mat Wrestling.

Nominated for the SIGNY Best Bondage Model Award in both 2004 and 2005, you can find most of her best work on her own website, Christina Bound. The content is mainly fetish and bondage orientated although there is some cosplay involved too, particularly super heroines.

Her videos have notched up over 78 million views across Pornhub and XVideos where she also enjoys a firm following of fans. On Pornhub alone she has over 15,000 subscribers and is ranked as the 1,347th most popular porn star worldwide.

19. Sinnamon Love

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars sinnamon love

Love was an active fetish model and BDSM porn star in the 1990s and early naughties. Though, at 45 years old, she is now retired, she still deserves a place on this list for her back catalog of scenes that are still being enjoyed today.

Born in Flint, Michigan she moved to Los Angeles when she was 18 as a college freshman. The lure of the San Fernando Valley didn’t take long to have an effect on Love and she was working in the industry in 1993 by the age of 20.

Starting out with Rodney Moore she quickly established a name for herself as the tiny black girl (5’ 3” and 115lb) who could take the biggest cocks. She was also an avid swallower and was at home doing anal and DP scenes.

She was the first African American BDSM star on sites like Kink and she also presented a live internet talk show in 2007 called Fetish at Nite. To add to her mainstream fame credentials, she appeared on The Jerry Springer Show in 1995, took salsa lessons from Cee-Lo-Green on Playboy TV and featured in men’s magazines as well as hip-hop titles. She also directed some scenes including one for which she received two AVN nominations in 2004; Best Ethnic Sex Scene and Best Anal Sex Scene. The latter was for her DP anal and DP vaginal work on camera in her directorial debut, My Black Ass.

She featured in over 250 porn titles during her career and managed to work with a lot of the big studios at the time including Dogfart Network, Fame Digital and Amateur GFs. She only did a few scenes with Kink, performing with adult stars like Kym Wilde but what content there is shows just what a freak she was on screen.

She’s still got a big fan base and has clocked up over 180 million video views on two of the popular porn tube sites including XVideos where she also ranks in the top 350 porn stars globally.

18. Marco Banderas

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars marco banderas

Uruguayan born Banderas was raised in Spain and sports the hallmark traits of a great BDSM porn star; muscled, tall (6’ 2”) with an intense on-screen demeanor and big cock.

One of the top 150 male pornstars, Banderas has worked with a lot of studios but we think he is at his best when he is performing with extreme brands like House of Taboo and Kink. He has an almost unnatural energy on-screen and is able to produce some impressive stamina. You only have to watch his face to see the effort he puts into his performances.

He works best in a group and the scenes that show off his talents the most include Kink’s own Kitten in a Cage and other gang bang titles.

He has been nominated for over 40 industry awards and has walked home with three titles to date including one with Skin Diamond and Prince Yahshua for a DP scene in Skin (2014).

Tough as nails and only ever seen putting submissive types through their paces, Banderas is definitely famous enough for the list.

17. Violet Monroe

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars violet monroe

A fiery redhead born in 1988 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Violet Monroe is of mixed Dutch and native American heritage. She is most well known for her anal performances but has turned her hand to most genres and styles including plenty of kink, fetish and BDSM work.

Over her career she has been nominated for plenty of awards, most notably with SpankBank and has won:

  • Prettiest ‘Whore Mouth’ 2016
  • Tortured Fuck Doll of the Year 2016
  • Vampire Sweetheart 2016

Starting out in 2009 at the age of 21, Monroe’s first porn job was with Burning Angel who cast her immediately and within three days she was filming a girl-on-girl scene at their studio.

She’s a hard-working porn star and has collaborated with a lot of other Californian sites including Take Her Easy, New Sensations, Devil’s Film and Naughty America.

With a slightly ‘goth’ look (creamy skin and smoky eye makeup) and tattoos, Monroe is a popular crossover porn star whose scenes are only ever hardcore and sometimes extreme.

Across Pornhub and XVideos she has clocked up over 91 million video views and is ranked just inside the top 1000 global porn stars according to the latter.

To see what the fuss is all about, hit up any of the porn tube channels and see her work for Kink’s ‘Whipped Ass’ brand. She is probably at her best when she is working in lesbian scenes but her clear talent is definitely in the anal department!

16. Anna de Ville

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars anna de ville

Still only 22 years old, Anne de Ville has been working in the industry since 2015 and is fast becoming known for her work with the Kink brand, Perverse Family and other Horror Porn brands. However, she also performs in the BDSM genre and has earned herself an avid fan base with her diversity as a switch

Also known as Anna Lee, she is a petite porn star at just 5’ 2” and has an all-natural body complete with perky 34C cup boobs. A brunette, she appears in some scenes with auburn hair.

Anna works with a lot of mainstream studios as well as Kink, including Tiny 4K, Fake Hub, Wankz and Legal Porno. As a result, her talents are widely appreciated outside of  the fetish communities and she has worked her way to a top 900 position in the world rankings of popular porn stars (XVideos). If you include Pornhub, her videos have received over 130 million views worldwide….and that’s just two tube platforms!

She is an ‘enthusiastic’ performer who is pretty flexible which helps in the BDSM world if you are in a submissive role. Her best work is undoubtedly with the Fucking Machines brand but we can also recommend her 2016 scene entitled ‘2 Whores in Predicament Bondage, Tormented and Made to Lick Pussy’ which also featured The Pope (see below) and Marica Hase.

15. Kleio Valentien

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars kleio valentien

A teaser image tweeted by John Paul The Rope for a Hogtied production featuring Kleio Valentien. Image via Twitter.

Ranked in the top 400 porn stars worldwide (according to Pornhub and XVideos) Kleio Valentien is another of those performers who gets around a bit.

This tattooed and pierced adult star is known for her on-screen attitude which is part anarchy and part nymphomaniac. She is a pure treat when she is playing the role of submissive and despite now being in her mid-30s is solidly a part of the contemporary BDSM porn scene.

Born in Austin, Texas but raised on a small-town farm, Valentien started working in the adult industry in 2009 with her debut for Burning Angel. Her first scenes included anal sex and a threesome with Mr. Pete and Alec Knight.

During her ten-year career, so far, she has worked with the likes of Hogtied, Alterotic and Jonni Darko as well as other channels for Kink.

From orgies to gang bangs, anal to bukkake and lesbian sex, Kleio does it all and she does it with gusto. She is another performer who likes to experiment with genres and pushes herself to extreme limits to give herself and her audience the best experience.

She is as comfortable in the role of sub as she is playing a dominant bitch and, according to Kink, loves roleplay almost as much as she loves the taste of cum!

Like Anna de Ville, Valentien has put in some of her best BDSM performances in scenes where she is handled by The Pope (see below). You can catch these scenes via Kink or through the major porn tube channels. Speaking of which, this feisty BDSM star has notched an impressive 244 million video views on Pornhub and XVideos which surely cements her place in this list.

14. Casey Calvert

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars casey calvert

With more than 500 million video views across XVideos and Pornhub plus ranking 300th and 700th most viewed star on these respective tube platforms, Casey Calvert is widely known in the porn community.

Although she has worked for pretty much every studio going, this Jewish-American babe has always been involved in the kink and BDSM community. She started in the adult industry as a fetish model in order to put herself through college yet she didn’t transfer to porn until much later. In fact, she didn’t lose her virginity until she was 21 (a 48 year-old trucker if you wanted to know). Fortunately, for us at least, she’s now making up for lost time.

Calvert has made more than 150 movies since 2012, almost 100 of which have been filmed with Kink for their various channels.

Mainly known for her submissive roles, she has just started experimenting with her dominant side and the results are pretty good and show just what a versatile performer she is. However, we definitely think that her best scenes are ones in which she shows just how much punishment she can handle. And that’s plenty.

A tough and intelligent woman, off-screen she enjoys competitive rock climbing and graduated with a BSc in Film Production with minors in Zoology and Anthropology. She has also written a monthly column for the BDSM blog, The Naked Truth.

Calvert has been nominated for lots of industry awards and has won several including the 2017 AVN Best Group Sex Scene (Orgy Masters 8) and the 2015 & 2018 XRCO Unsung Siren award. Unsung she may be in some circles but we think she thoroughly deserves the recognition for one of the best BDSM porn stars.

13. Roxanne Rae

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars roxanne rae

Another scene shot with The Pope, Roxanne Raw for Hogtied. Image via Pornhub.

Another star who started life in the industry at an early age, Rae joined the ranks of porn stars in 2012, aged 18 when she and her wife started camming from home. Quickly picked up by a talent agency, Rae has worked for a lot of studios but seems to love the scenes she performs in for fetish producers.

She has worked with Kink’s master rigger and handler, The Pope, for several shoots and it is definitely here where you can see her submissive talents in action. Genuinely taking hardcore to a new extreme, she is the ideal sub to anyone’s Dom. She’s also been involved in some gang bang action, ridden quite a few fucking machines and adeptly showcased the best in dungeon furniture and Shibari skills.

With her mainstream studio roles she has gathered a lot of fans and between XVideos and Pornhub she has clocked up more than 84 million view views being ranked in the top 2,000 pornstars on both platforms.

For us, there is no doubt that she is at her best under the command of The Pope and you can catch all of these double-act scenes on Kink.com

12. Gia DiMarco

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars gia dimarco

Starring in more than 160 scenes for Kink alone and hundreds more for studios like Brazzers, PervCity, Evil Angel and Jonni Darko, Gio DiMarco is a prolific porn star.

Real name Haley Wilde, DiMarco has been working in the industry since 2009 when she started her career at the age of 23. She has been nominated for plenty of awards including an AVN Fan Award in 2016 for Biggest Web Celebrity. And little wonder. She has earned herself over 240 million video views across Pornhub and XVideos alone where she still enjoys a pretty good fan base.

Known for her bad-ass attitude, tattoos and smoldering body, she has worked on most of Kink’s brand sites including Fucking Machines, Hogtied and Evolved Fights. Her scenes are extreme BDSM hardcore and DiMarco is a dedicated bottom but who can easily switch to mete out punishment to willing men and women.

She took a break from porn between 2014 and 2018 to have children yet she worked right up to the last minute and appeared pregnant in a couple of shoots for DivineBitches.

It would be difficult to pin us down for her best work as she blows most performers out of the water in anything she features in but two scenes spring to mind that you wont regret seeing are:

  • Obedience School 2 (2013) – Nominated for an AVN and XBiz Award in 2014
  • Divine Therapy (2019) Gia DiMarco Uses Unconventional Procedures to Punish

11. Maitresse Madeline Marlowe

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars Maitresse Madeline Marlowe

Working almost exclusively for Kink, Maitresse Madeline Marlowe is one of the top Dommes in the industry at the moment.

She started out in the business in 2006 and has made more than 230 videos including some that she has directed herself. She is now 41 and hasn’t appeared in front of the camera for Kink since 2017 when she produced just two titles. Well worth watching is the Queen’s Training in which she totally dominates fellow performer Reed Jameson. This is the kind of footage she excels in; tormenting both men and women and withholding orgasm in a delicious showcase of expert BDSM choreography.

Outside of her studio work, she runs her own Domina business and remains active on social media as well as having an avid following through sites like Only Fans.

A born dominatrix, Marlow stands at a commanding 5’ 8” and sports impressive (and all-natural) 32H boobs.

She is well-loved within the industry yet has enough of a following outside of the BDSM community to make her famous enough for our list. Surely 46 million video views (across just two tube sites) and 13 years at the top of the industry means something?

10. Abella Danger

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars abella danger

Currently ranked 4th and 5th most popular porn star worldwide on Pornhub and XVideos respectively, Abella Danger is currently at the top of her game. Jewish and of Ukrainian descent, Danger is one of the adult movie performers who plays the studio circuit to maximize their appeal. Yep, she’s worked with all the main producers from the mainstream markets of Team Skeet, Brazzers and Digital Playground to German Goo Girls, Broken Babes and Twistys.

She’s also pretty prolific in the fetish scene and has made over 40 videos with Kink and enjoys rough sex and being dominated. So far she has only been seen in the role of submissive and likes to be treated like a slut, preferring cumshots on her face to prove it.

A dancer off-screen, she is athletic and flexible which makes her BDSM scenes highly enjoyable as she is able to be put into some pretty extreme positions.

She’s told Kink that she wants to have a gangbang with 10 guys and with their Hardcore Gangbang channel, this could soon become a reality.

At just 23 years old and already with 1.75 billion video views on Pornhub and XVideos combined, she is certainly one of the most famous porn stars in the world at the moment……if not solely for her BDSM work but certainly an appealing addition to our list.

Check her out on Whipped Ass or Fucking Machines to see just why she is so popular.

9. Bobbi Starr

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars bobbi starr

Just like Abella Danger, Bobbi Starr has a huge fan base outside of the fetish community and boasts an incredible 400 million video views across just two of the major porn channels, XVideos and Pornhub. Yet, despite being ranked 339th and 656th most popular star she does have more of a BDSM profile than Danger.

She has been retired since 2014 so no longer produces material to up her profile.

Hungarian and Italian by descent, Starr is a multi-award-winning porn performer and was also an acclaimed director, working with brands like Electro-Sluts, Men in Pain and Dark Sodomy. She produced more than 240 titles with Kink and also directed with Evil Angel.

She started out in the industry in 2006 at the age of 23 and it was in the BDSM world that she first started filming.

She was named in 2011 as one of the 12 most popular porn stars by CNBC as well as earning recognition in the industry with awards such as:

  • 2008 and 2009 CAVR Starlet of Year
  • 2009 CAVR Siren of Year
  • 2009 and 2010 XRCO Award Superslut
  • 2010 XRCO Award ‘Orgasmic Oralist’
  • 2012 AVN Award ‘Female Performer of the Year’
  • 2012 AVN Award Best Porn Star Website BobbiStarr.com
  • 2012 XRCO Award ‘Orgasmic Analist’

She was a very versatile performer who gave 110% on camera whatever she was doing and her best work is undoubtedly in her group sex scenes when she is roughly dominated by many men. The 2013 video Taking Down Bobbi Starr is a particularly good one to cut your teeth on if you want to know why Starr is so popular.

8. Karlee Grey

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars karlee grey

At 5’ 6” tall and with enormous 36dd tits, Brazilian/Italian Karlee Grey has been at work in the industry since she was 20 years old.

If industry recognition by way of award nominations are anything to go by in terms of fame then Karlee Grey has this one all sewn up. Since starting out in the industry in 2014, she has been nominated for no fewer than ten AVN Awards including the coveted AVN Fan Award for Hottest Newcomer in 2016. Add to this a further six XBiz Award nominations including one for Best New Starlet 2016.

In just five years of making porn movies, Karlee Grey’s videos have been viewed more than a billion times across just two tube site platforms. That’s pretty impressive stuff.

Of course, not all of her work is in the BDSM world and she sports an equally impressive resume with the number of studios she has worked with.

Self-described as a thrill-seeker and adrenaline junkie, she is one of those incredible performers who is willing to test her limits on screen which makes for some electrifying results. As well as BDSM, Grey is also well known for her bukkake and watersports performances.

Kink has a nice selection of her BDSM performances including one which was recently uploaded in May 2019 featuring Erik Everhard.

7. Remy LaCroix

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars remy lecroix

Starting out in 2011 with a gang bang scene for Kink, LaCroix worked flat out for six months before taking a career break. She didn’t go far and simply moved behind the scenes for the studio in their talent department. By the end of 2012, she’d had enough of paper-pushing and was back in front of the cameras.

Though she retired permanently in 2017 to start a family, she was, for a time, one of the hottest new stars on the scene. In 2013, LA Weekly named her as one of the top ten porn stars who could be the next Jenna Jameson. She was also picked up by CNBC in their annual Dirty Dozen list of most popular porn stars for 2013 and 2014.

Despite being absent from the industry for almost three years she is also still ranked in the top 100 most watched porn stars on both Pornhub and XVideos; 31st and 92nd respectively. Between the two platforms she has notched up an impressive 790 million video views.

Although her early career is firmly established with Kink and the bondage genre, she also worked with other studios to produce hardcore content.

Her best scenes were all-girl and featured fellow BDSM porn stars, Princess Donna (see below) and Lorelai Lee (see below).

6. Penny Pax

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars penny pax

Winner of the ultimate accolades of Best Actress at AVN, XBIZ and XRCO, Penny Pax is a prolific performer who has worked for pretty much every studio going including plenty of niche fetish producers.

Pax started out in the industry when she was 22 years old back in 2011 and, despite approaching 30, she is still very active running her own, Penny Pax Live, website.

She is currently ranked in the top 100 porn stars in the USA and North America on XVideos and is 312th most viewed porn star worldwide across Pornhub. Across both platforms, she has achieved almost half a billion video views which isn’t surprising when you consider just how much material she has starred in. There are 1100+ videos to enjoy on XVideos alone, around 110 of which were filmed with Kink.

A fetish model through and through, this petite redhead was born and raised in Florida but has a mixed Irish/German heritage which sort of explains everything… don’t be alarmed if you see her with blonde hair in some clips though.

Through working with Kink, she discovered her love of BDSM and she has enjoyed exploring a role as both sub and Dom. According to an interview, she loves ‘the feeling of tight ropes against her skin and a nice ball gag in her mouth gets her just as wet as when she is dominating a girl.’

If you like the sound of either of those things then you will love watching her at work.

5. Mark Davis

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars mark davis

A former Chippendale dancer, Davis was once labelled ‘Britain’s biggest male porn star in America’ during the height of his career in the late 1990s.

Real name Steven Scott, he started work in the porn industry in 1993 and was pretty prolific with his performances; according to some reports, he has appeared in over 2400 adult movies. Along the way, he married the popular Asian porn star, Kobe Tai.

Davis was inducted into both the AVN and XRCO Halls of Fame in 2003 and 2006 respectively but retired from the industry in 2012, However, he came back in 2016 to shoot exclusively for Kink.

This was a natural return to the world of BDSM porn for him as the latter part of his formal career (2009-2012) was spent shooting for the fetish studio and he became well known for his ‘villainous’ roles.

Davis cuts an impressive and dominant figure on screen and stands at a muscular 6’ 2”, shaved head and distinctive jawbone. Of course, it doesn’t do him any harm that he also sports a big dick.

He’s a bit of a legend in the kink community and even at the age of 53, he still produces movies which attract a great following and he is a popular performer for the female porn stars to work with.

Across the two tube sites, Pornhub and XVideos, he has pulled in over 200 million video views and he is ranked as the 106th most watched porn star in the world according to XVideos.

4. Cherry Torn

One of Kink.com’s most prolific performers, Cherry Torn has appeared in over 417 scenes for the studio. She has also worked with a lot of mainstream production companies which has earned her a following outside of the kink community.

She started her career in 2006 and was originally a submissive performer only but has gained a reputation for being a hardcore switch. As a sub, she is flexible and really lets her go in the scenes but when she turns Domme, she has a truly evil streak that is spectacular to behold.

Some of her best work is on Kink Network sites like Water Bondage and The Training of O although you can also catch her on Society SM.

Now in her 30s, she has all the appeal of a MILF which has made her popular with studios like Reality Kings, Dogfart Network and Team Skeet. As a result, she also has a good following on mainstream sites and she ranks 3,150th and 2,166th most viewed porn star in the world according to XVideos and Pornhub respectively. Across just these two tube sites she has notched up an impressive 84 million video views.

You can catch some clips on all the major porn channels but Cherry Torn has her own website which showcases her talents as well as inviting fans to pay tribute to her.

3. Bella Rossi

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars bella rossi

One of the top performers at Kink, Bella Rossi is another versatile switch performer who is just as at home submitting to a Dom as she is taking control over a bottom. She is an experienced BDSM porn star but is also well-known for her wrestling prowess.

With over a decade at the top of her game, there aren’t many of Kink’s brands that she hasn’t performed for and she has risen through the ranks to become one of their most popular stars. From fucking machines to sadism and rough sex, she has an incredible on-screen presence which has earned her plenty of fans from the genre’s more dedicated audience.

Curvy, with 34DD breasts and a tiny waist, Rossi has also made plenty of fans across the porn tube networks and boasts an impressive 90 million video views over XVideos and Pornhub alone. She ranks 1,271st and 1,603rd most watched porn star on these platforms respectively.

2. Lorelei Lee

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars lorelai lee

There can’t be that many people, even those who prefer a more vanilla kind of porn, who haven’t heard of Lorelei Lee. She was famously involved in an obscenity trial between 2008-2010 resulting from her supporting role in John Stagliano’s film Milk Nymphos. She was called to testify for the defense but was insulted by the prosecution when she requested to do so using her stage name in order to protect her identity. The prosecution lawyer argued that by allowing her to do so would ‘legitimize’ her profession as a porn star. The case was dismissed but this kind of discrimination and insult perhaps fueled her work for the Freedom of Speech Coalition (FSC) who voted her Woman of the Year in 2015. She has been outspoken on the subject of censorship and opposing obscenity laws.

All the politics aside, Lorelai Lee surely deserves a place on this list and has been recognized by the AVN Awards in 2008-2013 as a nominee in several categories including Crossover Star of the Year Award 2013.

Most of her porn career has been with Kink studios as well as Whipped Ass, The Training of O, Devine Bitches and Fucking Machines. She has also worked for Kink as a director as well as appearing in several documentaries including one about the now defunct bondage website, Insex.

She has starred in many bondage movies and clips of many of her best scenes can be found on the major tube sites where she ranks around the 1,105 (XVideos) and 1,702 (Pornhub) mark for most view porn stars. Between the two sites, she has notched up over 112 million video views.

1. Princess Donna Dolore

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars princess donna

Probably one of the most instantly recognizable BDSM porn stars for true fans of the genre and also with a lot of crossover appeal. Not just an adult movie performer, Princess Donna is also a very talented director and has worked on many of Kink.com’s flagship brands including Ultimate Surrender, Bound Gang Bangs and Public Disgrace.

As an art student in New York she started work as a stripper but soon found her calling as a rigger and performer with the BDSM porn production company, Insex. Following her graduation, she took up a role almost immediately with Kink.com in San Francisco as a director, webmaster and performer. Initially responsible for Wired Pussy site, ‘Donna ‘ was the main Dominant for productions and she appeared in (and/or directed) over 300 scenes for the brand.

By 2008, she had also appeared for The Training of O website and had helped Kink to develop a new platform for BDSM content; Public Disgrace.

Just like Lorelai Lee, Dolore is a vocal member of the BDSM community and she has appeared in several documentaries including the 2007 film A Tale of Two Bondage Models with Lee herself.

As well as being one of the most popular and famous BDSM porn stars, ‘Donna’ has also gained a reputation for her hard hardcore. Perhaps the most brutal of these was the 2013 Hardcore Gangbang title, World Famous Dominatrix Triple Penetrated in Brutal Gangbang by 7 Men.

Despite being so well-known in the fetish community, Princess Donna only ranks as 2,586th and 1,372nd most viewed porn star in the world according to XVideos and Pornhub respectively. Despite this, the two sites combined report her total video views to exceed 83 million.

Okay, so we just couldn’t leave out a few names that may not have the ultimate ‘crossover’ fame but who we thought deserved to be included in our famous BDSM porn stars list

The Pope aka John Paul the Rope

Most Famous BDSM Porn Stars the pope and abella danger

Although you wont be able to find any porn movies starring The Pope in a ‘performing’ sense of the word, you may well be familiar with his face if you are a fan of the Kink sites, Hogtied, Fucking Machines and Device Bondage.

An AVN award-winning director, John Paul the Rope is a rigger and handler who puts many of the submissive porn stars listed above through their paces. Without roles like this being fulfilled in the porn industry the content we watch would be much the poorer quality for it. So, here we pay some homage to the ‘Pope’…..without any ring kissing!
