She won two Venus Awards, for Best New Starlet in 1999 and Best German Actress in 2000. She created a lot of news when she participated in a gang bang film where she had sex with over 30 men.
In 2001, Schaffrath retired from pornography and moved into mainstream acting, and has since appeared in numerous German television series, such as TV total, In aller Freundschaft and Wer wird Millionär?. After being recognised by a fan, she admitted in 2003 that she was working in a Frankfurtbrothel, but she stated it was because she was addicted to sex, rather than to make money. In 2005, she put the rights to her stage name and the brand Gina Wild up for sale, in an attempt to shed her porn star past. She is managed by her former husband, and, as of 2009 she lived in both Frankfurt and Hamburg.
