Alisha Klass (born in Chino, California) is a former American pornographic actress.

She began starring in pornographic movies around 1997, specializing in anal sex and becoming the best known collaborator with director Seymore Butts, aka Adam Glasser, to whom she was once engaged.[2][3] Klass had a tattoo on her rear reading "Seymore Butts."[4] Tampa Tushy-Fest Part 1., a 1998 video featuring Klass in a lesbian fisting scene with Chloe, resulted in Glasser being charged with obscenity.[4]
