Keiran Lee (born Adam Diksa[1] on 15 January 1984) is a British-American pornographic actor, director, and producer who works for pornographic production company Brazzers.[2] His penis was insured for $1 million in 2012 by Brazzers.[5] Lee performed in about 3,500 porn videos in his pornographic career.[6]

Early life and education[edit]

Lee, whose real name is Adam Diksa, was raised in the Littleover area of Derby, England.[1][7] Growing up, he attended Saint Benedict Catholic Voluntary Academy.[1] By the age of 18, he was working as a project manager for Network Rail.[1][6]

Career[edit]

Lee's career in porn began after his friends uploaded a nude photograph of him to a swingers website.[6] After seeing the post, a couple offered Lee a role in porn.[6] Lee first performed in adult video in 2002 at age 18.[3] He began freelancing in porn in England before signing an exclusive contract with Brazzers in 2005 after moving to America.[6] He started his pornographic carrier in 2006.

Lee performed in his first video for Brazzers in 2008. In August 2011, Brazzers placed a billboard advertisement with a photo of Lee in a tank top and sunglasses on Sunset Boulevard.[8] Dan Miller from XBIZ referred to it as "a landmark promotion for a male porn star."[8] In 2012, it was reported that Brazzers had taken out an insurance policy with Lloyd's of London, insuring Lee's penis for a reported $1 million.[5][9] In an interview with Elite Daily, Lee revealed that the policy was the only way he would receive compensation if he ever damaged his penis.[10] Lee appeared in 1,359 videos for Brazzers as of September 21, 2018, more than any other performer.[citation needed]

In October 2013, Lee made his feature film directorial debut with Hot Chicks Meet Big Fangs for Digital Playground.[11]

The Sex Factor[edit]

From May to July 2016, Lee appeared as a mentor and judge on The Sex Factor, an online reality series featuring sixteen men and women competing for $1 million and a three-year porn contract.[12][13] Lee, along with fellow pornstars Lexi Belle, Remy LaCroix and Tori Black, would offer advice and judge the contestants throughout the competition.[13][14] In her review of the series, Janis Hopkins from Vice News was critical of Lee's judging, commenting that "he has confused the deadpan tell-it-like-it-is judging technique of real TV with just straight up being a dickhead."[7] Lux Alptraum of The Verge was also critical of the judging, referring to the hosts as "stilted".[15] Jeremy Glass from Thrillist agreed with this sentiment, calling the judges "hard to watch."[16]

Personal life[edit]

Lee married twice. His first marriage was to pornographic actress Puma Swede but the couple divorced. He later was married to former pornstar and host for Playboy TV Kirsten Price.[4][10] The two currently reside with their infant son in Calabasas, California.[1] He boxes regularly to stay fit.[4] Lee is a big fan of soccer, saying he, "schedule[s] [his] whole life around the Derby County Rams.[1] In 2011, while playing soccer for the Hollywood United F.C., Lee had to be hospitalized after breaking his jaw in two places.[1][17]
