Chanel Preston (born December 1, 1985) is an American pornographic actress and the Penthouse magazine Penthouse Pet for March 2012. She entered the adult film industry in 2010 at the age of 24.

Early life[edit]

Preston was born and raised in Alaska.[4] She is of English, German, and Spanish descent.[3] At age 19, she moved to Hawaii, where she lived for six years.[5] She worked as a stripper for over a year before working in porn.[5] She is also a licensed esthetician.[5]


Preston entered the adult entertainment industry in January 2010, shooting her first scene with Nick Manning[6] for Vivid Entertainment's Brand New Faces series.[5] Since 2013, she is the President of the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee.[7][1]


In February 2012, Chanel Preston was announced by Penthouse magazine to be their Penthouse Pet for March 2012.[8] In September 2012, Preston appeared in the Russ Irwin's music video "Get Me Home".[9]

Preston co-hosted the 31st annual AVN Awards show alongside Samantha Saint on January 18, 2014. Also in 2014, Preston was on CNBC's list of "The Dirty Dozen: Porn's Most Popular Stars".[10][11] In 2015 she appeared in the "Bust" music video by rapper Waka Flocka Flame.[12]

Also in January 2014, she was featured alongside Dana DeArmond, Asa Akira, and Jessie Andrews in a Cosmopolitan article titled "4 Porn Stars on How They Stay Fit".[13] The article was inspired by actress Gabrielle Union's comment made on Conan O'Brien's talk show about striving to follow the fitness routines of the porn stars she saw at her gym.[14] She has also appeared as an extra in Sons of Anarchy.

Other ventures[edit]

In March 2014 Preston launched a sex education based web series titled Naked With Chanel.[15] According to Cosmopolitan the series "examines how our society and upbringing influences our ideas about sex."[15] In order to fund the series, Preston used the fundraising website IndieGogo. Her 2013 campaign generated enough to build the series' website and to film several episodes.[16] She also hosts sex-positive podcast named "SexThink" with political critic Rob Nelson.[17]
