Monica Mayhem (born Caroline Pickering;[1] 14 March 1978) is an Australian former pornographic actress, exotic dancer[3] and singer.

Early life[edit]

Mayhem was born in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia and she is half Australian and half Welsh.[2] She attended Kenmore State High School but was expelled.[1] Prior to working in porn, she worked in financial markets and futures trading in Sydney.[2] She then moved to London and worked in an International Petroleum Exchange brokerage.[2]


Mayhem began her career in the adult entertainment industry as a dancer at the Spearmint Rhino on Tottenham Court Road.[2] In December 2000, Mayhem moved to the United States to begin acting in pornographic films.[citation needed] Her first scene was with Lee Stone in Real Sex Magazine 38.[4] In 2002, she won the XRCO Award for Starlet of the Year[3][5] and the FOXE Award for "Vixen of the Year".[6]

Outside pornographic films, Mayhem was a singer/guitarist in an all-girl metal band, "Sweet Avenge".[3]

In 2008, she appeared in a small role in the Sex and the City film, in which she is seen through a window having sex with Samantha's neighbour Dante.

Mayhem wrote an autobiography entitled Absolute Mayhem: Confessions of an Aussie Porn Star,[3][7] which was released by Random House Australia in 2009 in her native Australia and by Skyhorse Publishing in North America the following year.[8][9] A French translation was published in 2011 by Camion Noir.[citation needed]

In August 2010, she announced that she had retired from pornographic acting, after over 400 films,[10] and that she was engaged to a Sydney veterinarian.[11]
