About Dani Daniels

About Dani
How did Dani Daniels become the adult film superstar her fans know and love? To answer that we’ll have to begin in Orange County, California, where Dani grew up. You may be interested to know that Dani was a tomboy in her younger years who took part in football, volleyball, tennis, track and field, soccer, golf, tennis and softball. You name it, Dani played it!

Here’s the deal; Dani has revealed via a Fleshbot interview that her confidence and passion for sex started to emerge during her teenage years;

“I did date, but I was quite the cock tease. I had two boyfriends for two years each in high school and I didn’t lose my virginity until I was practically eighteen”.

In fact, Dani’s raunchy side began to emerge when she was 15 years old whilst working as an assistant at a medical office in Orange County. Believe it or not, Dani would always get into trouble for tailoring her scrubs to make them look sexier! Dani’s dominant sexual style really started to take form when she lost her virginity when she was 18 years old. As Dani put it in her own words during a 2014 Interviewly.com chat;

“When I was 18, I drove my boyfriend home (his car was in the shop) and in broad daylight I hopped on his dick in the passenger seat in the driveway to his house. I guess you could say I was curious. He couldn’t believe it”.

Dani was also 18 years old when she had her first sexual encounter with a woman and she has raunchily revealed within her 2011 Digital Desire interview that;

“I was curious and met someone who was willing to show me how to have GOOD sex with a woman 🙂 she was such a hot redhead, in her late 20s 🙂 I still think of her when I masturbate!!… I’m personally bi, so yea u can say that. I love beautiful women :)”.

Dani’s newfound passion for sex was only matched by her love for art. Often painting and drawing in her spare time, Dani decided to combine her two passions by posing as a nude model for local artists. During this stage of her life Dani also worked as a glamour model but she did not yet have any plans to pursue a porn star career. In fact, during her interviewly.com chat Dani revealed that she had no previous knowledge of the adult film industry before shooting her first sex scenes;

“I didn’t watch porn before I started and I don’t watch porn now. I just fuck people I enjoy and have a good time doing it”.

Instead, Dani decided to attend art school. Although she dropped out after two years, Dani continues to create various pointillism portraits where she incorporates lyrics and writings from her favourite musicians and authors. You can view all of Dani’s artwork (which she promotes under her birth name Kira Lee Orsag) via her @Pen15Artist Twitter profile.

Everything changed in 2013 when Dani started working as an exotic dancer at a local club in order to pay off her student debts. Little did Dani know that this job would pave the way for a successful adult film star career! Dani has discussed this turning point in her life via her official website, divulging that;

“I got into the business to pay off art school debt and safely explore my curiosity and love of women. I was a bisexual, curious stripper after college, and I remember dancing on stage and overhearing two men talking about a girl-girl only performer. I chimed in, “Wait, you can just fuck girls? I thought you had to do everything in porn!” I left that week for LA, researched and signed with my agent (now as well as close friend and family) Sandra McCarthy of Ocmodeling.com, and fucked as many girls as I could get my hands on. I loved and love every second of it”.

Dani Daniels : Adult Film Career
Once Dani discovered that she could pursue a career as a girl/girl performer there was no holding her back! Dani’s first ever girl/girl shoot? An amazing all-girl group sex scene with Hana Black, Lux Kassidy, Sammie Rhodes that was promoted via the Reality Kings porn site in March 2011 as part of their We Live Together web series. Titled Perfect Pairing, Dani loved shooting her debut sex scenes and enthused within her 2015 Adult DVD Talk interview that;

“It was a girl-girl-girl-girl for Reality Kings. I was nervous at first but all the girls were cool and once the scene started, I was too excited for vagina to remember that I was nervous…I think I reached a comfort level right away. But my confidence took a year to build”.

Dani signed with the exclusive adult film talent agency OC Modelling in 2011, chose the porn star stage name ‘Dani Daniels’, and the rest is history! Wondering about the origins of this porn star stage name? Dani has revealed in previous interviews that;

“Hahahaha oh boy… long story short it was an ex’s first name and it may or may not be an immature act of revenge”.

But how did Dani’s family react to her porn star career? Well, you may be interested to hear that Dani has received nothing but enthusiasm from her family with regards to her career choices. As Dani explained within her 2015 Adult DVD Talk interview;

“My mom is my biggest fan. She always calls me and tells me how proud she is of me and it’s the best! It makes me laugh because our country is so sheltered and afraid of sex, people are always like “Wow, your mom supports it?” And I always respond “Well, yea, as long as I’m safe and happy, she doesn’t care what I do because she’s an intelligent, un-sheltered woman.” My friends all know and old schoolmates and it’s whatever. I surround myself with good people and the worst response I got was someone made fun of me because I was wearing a pearl necklace in my senior picture. But, c’mon, I was asking for that one”.

For the first two years of her adult film career Dani appeared exclusively in all-girl porn productions. An instant hit among fans and film critics, Dani was named as Twisty’s “Treat of the Month” in July 2011 and Penthouse magazine made her their “Pet of the Month” in January 2012. What’s more, Dani was named as Elegant Angel‘s “Girl of the Month” in March 2014 and she has been featured within CNBC‘s “The Dirty Dozen: Porn’s Most Popular Stars” list in 2014 and 2015.

Eager to explore some of Dani’s hottest girl/girl collaborations? Then you have to check out her sizzling shoot with Sinn Sage in Dani Daniels: Dare (2012) for Elegant Angel which was named “Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene” at the 2013 AVN Awards, her terrific three-way with Anikka Albrite and Karlie Montana in Anikka 2 (2014) for Hard X which won “Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene” at the 2015 AVN Awards, and her steamy group session with Alexis Texas, Asa Akira and Skin Diamond in Alexis and Asa (2013) that was named “Best All-Girl Release” at the 2014 Nightmoves Awards as well as at the 2015 AVN and XBIZ Awards. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Dani Daniels : Adult Film Awards & Notable Nominations
No one could predict how much Dani’s adult film career would skyrocket in 2012 after she filmed her first ever boy/girl sex scenes for her Elegant Angel signature showcase Dani Daniels Dare (2012). This action-packed star showcase featured Dani in five fantastic hardcore scenes which earned her a wealth of “Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene”, “Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene” and “Best Star Showcase” nominations at the 2013 AVN Awards.

Why did Dani decide to film her boy/girl debut? Curious fans will be interested in reading Dani’s in-depth explanation via her official website wherein she explained how;

“behind everyone’s back I did my first boy-girl showcase movie with friend Mason of Elegant Angel. My girl-girl fans, as well as the industry, were stunned (most girls shop around companies to get as much money as possible, but I just went to the director and company I knew would make the movie I wanted). Why did I do it? Because I didn’t have to. There is an usual fear of women in this industry getting “shot out” and “having to do boys, and then anal, and then a D.P…” and then next thing you know you’re doing a gang bang with 10 guys wondering wtf happened. Not that that’s a bad thing at all I just always have believed you should do what you love to do in porn, not what you “have” to do or what you “should” do. People think you have to have this order of what you shoot in what time period to last and to be honest I think it’s all bullshit…

I think you should do what you love and fans will watch you enjoying what you love and then you will continue to get booked for what you love, not fake though a scene you’re not into that comes out obvious when fan’s watch the scene. Anyway, back to why. I was at the top of my girl-girl career and remember thing to myself, “I don’t HAVE to do boys, I WANT to.” I met about 12 male talents on sets that I had chemistry and attraction to, developed a “Yes” list of male talents (the first time done in the industry, my agent thought I was crazy at the time) and shot an incredible award winning showcase. I can’t give Mason enough thanks for letting me shoot what I wanted to shoot with whom I wanted and causing me to fall in love with filming”.

Following her string of AVN Awards nominations everyone was wondering how Dani would top her critically acclaimed Elegant Angel star showcase. Don’t worry, she didn’t disappoint!

Hot on the heels of her sizzling star showcase, Dani appeared in her very first interracial release, Dani Daniels Deeper (2014) for Blacked.com, which won “Best Interracial Release” at the 2015 AVN Awards. What’s more, Dani secured the lead role in a five-part Brazzers parody series titled The Whore of Wall Street (2014). Also starring Capri Cavanni and Monique Alexander, The Whore of Wall Street was an instant hit among fans and film critics which earned Dani an impressive collection of “Best Actress – Parody Release”, “Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene” and “Best Parody: Drama” nominations at the 2015 AVN, XBIZ and XRCO Awards.

As matter of fact, Dani has won a wealth of prestigious adult entertainment accolades including;

Dani was thrilled to win her very first AVN Award, sincerely conveying within a 2013 AIP Daily interview how;

“I couldn’t believe it. I was a babbling idiot and so scared to be on stage. I felt like I was going to pass out. I was so freaked out but to win for girl/girl scene of the year and girl/girl movie of the year meant so much to me. It was the best feeling to know I would be stepping forward into boy/girl but still be awarded for my girl/girl work. I owe it all to Elegant Angel and OC Modelling”.
