Gauge (born July 24, 1980) is the stage name of an American pornographic actress and featured dancer.[2][3]

Gauge entered the pornographic film industry in 1999 at the age of nineteen.[1] After having appeared in about 140 movies, she left the industry in 2005[4][5] due to a contract dispute with her management company.[2] She was certified as a surgical technologist,[5] but she reported that she was often turned down for jobs because of her adult film career.[2]

While Gauge was studying to become a surgical technician, an anesthesia student recognized Gauge from her adult film career, word quickly spread through the hospital staff that there was a porn star among their ranks, and, when Gauge was set to graduate, she said that no one at the unnamed hospital would sign off on her required hours.[5] Gauge has also claimed that while "working at a hospital" that her "boss hit on her", and she was unable to convince the hospital's complaints department that the incident actually happened, so she ended up giving her notice.[6]

In August 2013, she announced that she was mounting a comeback in adult films, with a feature for Brazzers.[4] In September 2013, her story was featured in an article on Salon entitled "Fired for doing porn: The new employment discrimination".[2]
