Dani Daniels (born September 23, 1989) is the stage name of an American pornographic actress and director.[1] She is the Penthouse Pet of the Month for January 2012.

Early life[edit]

Daniels was born in Orange County, California.[2] She is of Czech descent.[1]


Daniels began stripping prior to her porn career to pay off her art school debt.[3] She entered the adult film industry in January 2011 and joined the agency OC Modelling.[4] Her first scene was for Reality Kings.[5] She was initially a lesbian-only performer, but later started performing with men also.[6] Her first four sex scenes with men were in the film Dani Daniels: Dare for Elegant Angel.[6] Dani won the 2013 AVN Award for Best All-Girl Release.[7]

Daniels has directed several films for Penthouse and Filly Films.[8] She has also appeared in productions for Brazzers, Digital Playground, Elegant Angel, Evil Angel, Girlfriends Films, Jules Jordan Video, Kink.com, Vivid Entertainment, Wicked Pictures, and Zero Tolerance Entertainment. According to her credits on IAFD, she is predominantly a girl/girl performer with nearly half of her credited appearances listed as "LezOnly". Roughly a sixth of her appearances have been "non sex" roles.[1]

Daniels was the Twistys Treat of the Month for July 2011,[9] the Penthouse Pet of the Month for January 2012,[2] and Elegant Angel's Girl of the Month for March 2014.[10]


In 2014, Daniels was placed on CNBC's list of "The Dirty Dozen: Porn's Most Popular Stars."[11] Later that year, Brazzers cast her in the lead role of a five-part series titled The Whore of Wall Street, an adult parody of The Wolf of Wall Street.[12]

Personal life[edit]

Daniels identifies as bisexual but mainly considers herself a "girl/girl model".[6] She is also a painter.[13]
