Teagan Presley (born Ashley Ann Erickson[1][2] on July 24, 1985[3]) is a former American pornographic actress. Her stage name in part comes from her parents initially wanting to call her "Teagan"[4] and in part as an homage to Lisa Marie Presley.[5]

Early life[edit]

Presley was born in Texas and raised in California.[6]


Presley was living with a boyfriend who didn't make any money to help support them. She started stripping for extra money. This angered her boyfriend so she then sought out an agent on-line to do pornography.[7] At 18 years old, she did her first scene with Joel Lawrence in Just Over Eighteen #10 from Red Light District Video.[6]

She performed in 70 pornographic film scenes over the next eight months, many of which included anal scenes.[8]

In late-2004, she signed an exclusive, three-year contract with porn production studio Digital Playground. Presley claims she first became involved in pornography as revenge against her ex-boyfriend.[7]

Teagan Presley left Digital Playground to start her own web site and production company with her husband, adult performer Tyler Durden (AKA Tyler Wood).[9] She complained that Digital Playground was not allowing her to perform for her new company.[10] However, Digital Playground refuted the complaint and said that Teagan was free to work as lawyers were resolving her contract status.[11] While there were reports that her surname "Presley" was owned by the studio Digital Playground,[12] a representative of the studio has denied those reports as false.[11] In October 2008, she was invited by Digital Playground to host the red carpet at the premiere of Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge, a film produced by the firm.[13]

In July 2008, she announced that she had her breast implants replaced and that she would be auctioning them on eBay, with 20%[citation needed] of the proceeds going to Susan G. Komen for the Cure;[12] she also announced that she would stop performing boy/girl sex scenes.[12] The remainder of the proceeds were to be used to fund her divorce and custody cases. In October 2008, Presley was named Best Feature Dancer by Nightmoves magazine.[14] In November 2008, she was named the Penthouse Pet of the Month for January 2009.[15]

Presley and her boyfriend Josh Lehman launched their own studio called SkinWorxxx in early 2009, with their first production called The Search for Sun Goddess XXX.[16][17] In November 2009, Presley signed with Adam and Eve Pictures as an exclusive performer, with her first film to be Bree & Teagan, appearing with Bree Olson.[18]

In 2010, she was named by Maxim as one of the 12 top female stars in porn.[19]

She retired from performing in 2013.[20]

Personal life[edit]

By November 2007, she had married John Durden,[21] but she had filed for divorce as of July 2008.[12] In September 2008, she was first reported to be dating Josh Lehman; she had married him by April 2010.[13][1]
