Steven Wolfe (born December 31, 1978), known professionally as Johnny Sins, is an American pornographic actor, director, and YouTuber.[1][2] Known for his shaved head and muscular physique, he is consistently among the most popular pornography searches.[3][4][5][6] He has received many accolades for his work, including two nominations for the AVN Award for Male Performer of the Year.[7][8]

Early life

Sins was born Steven Wolfe[9] in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania,[10] on December 31, 1978.[11] He has described himself as "very shy" while growing up.[12] After graduating from college, he got a job working six days a week in construction.[12] He noticed the early signs of male pattern baldness when he was around 24 years old, and has kept his head shaved ever since.[13] In 2006, at the age of 28, he quit his job and moved to Los Angeles to enter the pornographic film industry.[12]

Career

Sins' first pornographic endeavors were through Craigslist ads.[12] Brazzers has described him as a "go-to guy" for the studio,[7] having performed in 1,054 scenes as of April 1, 2019.[11] He performed in about 2,300 videos in his pornographic career.[14]

On June 10, 2015, Pornhub launched a crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo to produce the first adult film in space.[15][16][17] Sins and fellow actress Eva Lovia were slated to perform in the film.[18][19] If the project were successfully funded, the two would have received six months of rigorous preparation for the launch, including zero gravity, velocity, and temperature training.[20][15] When asked about the opportunity, Sins said, "It's beyond just doing it for the money, or the money shot for that matter. It's about making history."[21] The campaign raised $236,086 over 60 days, failing to reach its goal of $3.4 million.[22]

In early 2017, Sins and pornographic actress Kissa Sins (his then-wife) launched their YouTube channel SinsTV, which chronicles their day-to-day lives and features sex advice.[1][23] As of May 2021, the channel has accrued 1.73 million subscribers. A video of Sins trying out various Turkish snacks briefly became the top YouTube video in Turkey.[2][4][24]

In July 2018, images of Sins alongside several other porn stars were painted on the side of a bus that traveled around Kerala in India.[25][26] The mural was part of a marketing campaign aimed to boost college tour rides.[25] Later that year, Sins received the award for Most Popular Male Performer by Women at the annual Pornhub Awards,[27][28] for which winners were determined by users' streaming data.[27]

As of mid-2019, Sins has stopped making porn videos but stated that he may return in the future.[29]

Personal life

Sins currently resides in Las Vegas. He was previously married to pornographic actress Kissa Sins.[9] They separated in 2019,[30] but remain close friends.[31]

In October 2017, a picture of Sins was tweeted by a user claiming he was missing after the Las Vegas shooting.[32][33][34] The tweet was one of many viral hoaxes that emerged related to the shooting.[32][33]
