Mike Adriano (born 30 June 1980) is a Spanish pornographic actor and director.[1] He has been nominated for best director awards at several recent AVN Award, XBIZ Award and XRCO Award ceremonies.[2][3][4][5][6]

Gonzo pornography[edit]

Adriano is recognized as a major director in the genre of gonzo pornography.[7]:345 His work at times takes to extremes, even by the standards of gonzo, two of the distinctive characteristics of the genre: very lengthy scenes (over one hour),[7]:341 and graphic focus on the purely physical aspects of sex (for example, measuring dilation of bodily orifices).[7]:341[8]

Influence[edit]

Porn star and director Bonnie Rotten has credited Adriano with inspiring and encouraging her to direct.[9] Porn star Candice Dare has expressed her liking for working with Adriano, as a demanding director and colleague who pushes her to the limits of her abilities.[8]
