Early life[edit]

Kane worked as a stripper for a year when she was 18 years old. She danced at the Sugar Shack, a strip club in Portland, Oregon.[4] She entered the adult film industry in August 2003 when she was 20 years old and did her first scene for the film Troubled Teens.[3] She's had nipple piercings, but no tattoos.[5] She is often cast in the alt porn genre, even at times in which she had no body modifications. In 2006, she made her directorial debut with the film Naked and Famous for Pulse Distribution.[3] She went on to direct Triple Ecstasy, Morphine, and Live In My Secrets, three alt porn films produced by Vivid Entertainment.[6]

Kane used to co-host a radio show titled The Porn Hunnies with Maria Menendez on KSEX.[7] She has also written for Strip Las Vegas and AVN magazines.[7]

In 2010, Kane was named by Maxim as one of the 12 top female stars in porn[8] and named one of the top 10 female directors by XCritic. [9]

In 2011, Kane was the cover model for Taschen's "Big Book of Pussy" and had her photography exhibited in the group show "Alt To The Alt" in Los Angeles alongside other adult industry photographers including Eon Mckai and Bob Coulter.


On March 22, 2010, Kane participated in an anti-piracy public service announcement for the Free Speech Coalition.[10][11]

Kane voiced her support for President Barack Obama in the 2012 United States presidential election, stating that she agreed with his views on women's issues, health care, and gay rights.[12] That same year, expressed her opposition towards Measure B, a law requiring pornographic actors to wear condoms during all sex scenes filmed in Los Angeles County, California.[13]
