  • Symbol opinion vote.svg Comment: Draft revised by removing most non-english sources and providing a couple more reliable, secondary sources. I would ask the next reviewer to consider the in-depth Playboy article published since the last AFD. Although many sources are industry magazines, I believe there is more than enough coverage in this article and online (such as this list from the 4th AFD: Germany (Rheinische Post), and Spain (Marca), and Puerto Rico (El Imparcial), and Portugal (Correio da Manhã), and those found in the previous version of this draft [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8]) to satisfy WP:BASIC.

Lana Rhoades is an American vlogger and former pornographic actress from Chicago, Illinois. Throughout her career she has appeared in publications such as Hustler, Penthouse, and Playboy.[1] Since retiring from the porn industry, she has shifted to podcasting and entrepreneurship.[2]

Early life[edit]

At the age of 16, Rhoades was arrested for burglary and sent to Warrenville Youth Center in Illinois. She was released after one year and earned her GED. Rhoades then moved close to Chicago a few months before turning 18 to work as a waitress at a Tilted Kilt pub.[3]


Rhoades began her professional adult film career in 2016, when she was 19 years old.[3] She left the professional industry by late 2017. In 2017, Rhoades publicly accused director Pierre Woodman of coercing her into performing acts she did not want to during a shoot, and that he allegedly admitted to her to violating another woman's rights.[4] She continues to be open about exploitation and abuse in the porn industry.[5]

In 2019, Rhoades was the most searched pornstar on Pornhub, garnering 345 million views.[3][6] In November of 2020, Ellen von Unwerth directed her photoshoot for the cover of Playboy.[3]

In 2021, she began to promote the cryptocurrency PAWGcoin,[7] and developed an NFT image project in November of that year. The project initially raised $1.8 million.[8] In February 2022, Rhoades deleted her Twitter account after being accused of rug pulling her collection of NFT images.[9]

Rhoades co-hosts the podcast 3 Girls 1 Kitchen[10] and has designed a lingerie line with Yandy.[3]
