Silvia Saint (born Silvie Tomčalová;[1][2] February 12, 1976)[3][6] is a Czech former pornographic actress.[4] In 1996, she was Penthouse Pet of the Year in the Czech edition of the magazine,[7][8] and she has appeared in over 300 pornographic movies.[4]

Career[edit]

Tomčalová studied management for two years in Brno.[citation needed] She worked as a manager of a large hotel in the Czech city of Zlín and in other companies as an accountant and marketing coordinator.[citation needed] She found that the work was financially unsatisfactory, so she moved on to modeling, first lingerie, then nude in magazines, and finally to pornographic films.[6] She was Penthouse Pet of the Year in 1996 (Czech edition).[9] After her introduction to the American porn industry, she became the October 1998 Penthouse Pet of the Month (U.S. edition).[3]

Saint's early films were shot in Europe, many for Private Media Group.[4][5] Later, she moved to the United States where she spent over three years working in the porn industry.[citation needed]

Saint starred in a Private Media Group space-themed pornographic film The Uranus Experiment: Part Two,[4] which featured a brief scene filmed in a Russian aircraft flying a parabolic track (similar to NASA's Vomit Comet).[citation needed] The film featured around 20 seconds of Saint and Nick Lang (who both portray astronauts living on a space station) having penetrative sex in freefall.[citation needed] The scene was nominated for a Nebula Award, but it did not win.[10]

Saint was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at Torino Sex 2005, Turin's second annual Delta of Venus Fair.[11]

In 2006, Saint won the rights to the Internet domain name silviasaint.com from a cybersquatter in a Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy action.[2]
