Inari Vachs (born September 2, 1974) is an American pornographic actress.

Early life[edit]

Vachs was a sales associate at a life insurance company prior to her porn career.[3]

Career[edit]

She entered the industry in November 1997 at age 23[1] and has since appeared in over 380 films.[4] Her first scene was an anal sex shoot for Max Hardcore.[3] Her stage name refers to the Japanese god Inari, who is depicted in paintings as a woman with long, flowing hair, and to her favorite author Andrew Vachss.[1][dead link] In 2000, she signed an exclusive contract with XXXGeneration Video and became a music reporter for XXXGeneration magazine.[5] In 2002, she began an 8-year hiatus from performing on camera.[4]

In 2003, she established the production company IV Multimedia.[6] As of 2005, she co-hosted Playboy TV’s Naughty Amateur Home Videos.[7]

In 2010, Vachs returned to performing with a starring role in Harder by skinworXXX. On her return to performing she commented, "Porn is so much more widely accepted now than it was [in 2002]. The hardest part of doing porn was how society viewed you. It made it tough sometimes, but now it’s different. My mom didn’t even know I did porn until I stopped performing, but now, I called her today and told her what I was doing."[4] In 2011 she was the co-host for the 2011 XRCO Awards with Tom Byron.[8]

Personal life[edit]

Vachs had a daughter during her hiatus from porn.[9]
