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 which was tough step which 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 absolutely 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]
