Sean Michaels (born February 20, 1958 in Brooklyn, New York) is a pornographic actor and director. He moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles in order to begin his career in porn, in which he has worked since 1988. Michaels has also been a director of adult films since 1991 and has appeared in 2,000 pornographic films and over 9,000 scenes. Many of his scenes involve interracial anal sex.[1]

According to an adult film news web page, in 2003 Michaels was issued a cease and desist order by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) on the use of his name due to the similarity it had to WWE wrestler Shawn Michaels. According to the same adult film web page, Sean's name was already registered as a trademark, while Shawn Michaels had not registered his moniker.[2]

Along with Lisa Ann and Nikki Benz, Michaels hosted the XRCO Awards in April 2010.[3]

Michaels is a member of both the AVN Hall of Fame[4] and the XRCO Hall of Fame.[5]
