Early life[edit]

Silvia Saint was born Silvia Tomcalova on February 12, 1976, in what is now the Czech Republic. Growing up under communism, she was an only child who faced many hardships in her life including poverty and the death of her father when she was young.

Career[edit]

Saint began as an erotic modeling, first lingerie, then nude in magazines and finally to pornographic films.[6] She was Penthouse Pet of the Year in 1996 (Czech edition).[9] After her introduction to the American porn industry she became the October 1998 Penthouse Pet of the Month (U.S. edition).[3]

Saint's early films were shot in Europe, many for Private Media Group.[4][5] She performed in a Private Media Group space-themed pornographic film The Uranus Experiment: Part Two,[4] which featured a brief scene filmed in a Russian aircraft flying a parabolic track (similar to NASA's Vomit Comet).[citation needed] The film featured around 20 seconds of Saint and Nick Lang (who both portray astronauts living on a space station) having penetrative sex in freefall.[citation needed] The scene was nominated for a Nebula Award, but it did not win.[10]

Saint was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at Torino Sex 2005, Turin's second annual Delta of Venus Fair.[11]

In 2006 she won the rights to the Internet domain name silviasaint.com from a cybersquatter in a Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy action.[2] Since 2007 she has only starred and performed in lesbian sex movies, while also taking care of the auditions as director and producer to her official website.[12]
