India Summer (born April 26, 1975)[1] is the stage name of an award winning American pornographic actress and nude model. Her stage name is based on the phrase Indian summer, as used in the song Indian Summer by The Doors.[2] Summer also has mainstream acting credits.[3][4]

Career[edit]

Summer entered the adult film industry in December 2005 at the age of 30.[5] She is one of several performers to be cast as politician Sarah Palin-like character in a porn parody such as the 2009 Drill Baby Drill by Penthouse Features.[6]

In July 2009, she signed an exclusive girl/girl contract with the studio Girlfriends Films.[7] In addition to Girlfriends Films, Summer has worked for production such as Adam & Eve, Brazzers, Digital Sin, Evil Angel, Jules Jordan Video, Kink.com, New Sensations, Penthouse Pictures, Twistys, Venus Girls Entertainment, Vivid Entertainment, Wicked Pictures, and Zero Tolerance.[1]

In November 2011, her debut as a director was announced with the movie Perfect Fit.[8]

In January 2012, the Internet Adult Film Database (IAFD) announced, in a release of compiled data, that Summer "was the busiest female performer in the industry" with 78 new titles released in 2011.[9]

Appearances[edit]

Summer has appeared in small roles in the television series Sons of Anarchy and Dexter.[3][4] She also had a role on the Showtime cable series Girls of Sunset Place as Marina Haze.[10]

Personal life[edit]

Summer was born in Des Moines, Iowa and is a mix of German, Irish, Native American ancestry.[1] She describes herself as a "swinger" (prior to entering the industry) and "very bisexual".
