Dani Daniels (born September 23, 1989)[1] is the stage name of an American pornographic actress and stripper.[3]

Early life[edit]

Dani Daniels is from Orange County, California.[2] She is of Czech, English and German descent.[1] She attended an art school for about two years, but dropped out.[4]

Career[edit]

Daniels began stripping before her porn career to pay off her art school debt.[4][5] Her stage name was derived from the first name of an ex-boyfriend as an act of revenge against him.[4][6] She entered the adult film industry in January 2011 and joined the agency OC Modelling.[7] Her first scene was for Reality Kings.[6] She was initially a lesbian-only performer, but later started performing with men.[8] Her first four sex scenes with men were in the film Dani Daniels: Dare for Elegant Angel.[8] Elegant Angel also produced an all-girl film titled Dani, which features Daniels in every scene.[9] Dani won the 2013 AVN Award for Best All-Girl Release.[10]

Daniels has directed for Filly Films, Penthouse Studios, Brazzers, and Reality Kings.[11][12]

Daniels was the Twistys Treat of the Month for July 2011,[13] the Penthouse Pet of the Month for January 2012,[2] and Elegant Angel's Girl of the Month for March 2014.[14] That same month, Brazzers cast her in the lead role of a five-part series titled The Whore of Wall Street, an adult parody of The Wolf of Wall Street.[15]

Daniels started out webcam modeling for Streamate.[16] She is now on Camsoda.com.[3]

Daniels performed for the 2014 film Dani Daniels Deeper,[17] which won the AVN Award for Best Interracial Release[18] and the XBIZ Award for Interracial Release of the Year in 2015.[19] In 2015, she collaborated with Doc Johnson to create a line of sex toys,[20] which won the 2016 AVN Fan Award for Most Amazing Sex Toy.[21]

Daniels was placed on CNBC's list of "The Dirty Dozen: Porn's Most Popular Stars" in 2014[22] and 2015.[23]

Personal life[edit]

Daniels is also a blogger and painter.[3] She creates her artwork under the name Kira Lee.[20] Her technique is pointillism.[4] As of January 2016, she is attending flight school.[3] She identifies as bisexual who mainly considers herself a "girl/girl model".[8]
