Venus Lux (born October 10, 1990)[1] is an American transsexual pornographic actress, director, producer, and educator.[3]

Early life[edit]

Lux was born and raised in San Francisco, California and she is of Chinese and Mongolian descent.[4] She was an only child.[5] She worked as an escort, stripper, and bartender prior to her porn career.[6][7]

Career[edit]

Lux entered the adult film industry in 2012 after receiving an email from a Kink.com talent scout.[6][7] Her first scene was with Kaylee Hilton for tspussyhunter.com.[5] When she first chose her stage name, Venus referred to the ruling planet for Libra while Lux was short for luxury.[5] She later began to consider her stage name's original meaning to be "a bit tacky" and decided to change it.[5] She now states that her stage name is Latin/Greek for love and illumination.[5]

Other ventures[edit]

Lux owns a studio called Venus Lux Entertainment.[8] In December 2014, she signed an exclusive three-year distribution deal with Pulse Distribution.[8] In 2012, she began writing a column titled "Venus Rising".[9] She compiled some of those columns into a book titled Venus Lux Diaries, which was released in March 2015.[9] In October 2015, she launched TransGlobal Magazine.[10] In 2016, Venus Lux founded Syren Network and the website TS Fetishes, both of which launched in the spring. She is featured in the sequel of the documentary After Porn Ends titled After Porn Ends 2.[11]

Personal life[edit]

In March 2009, Lux decided to transition from male-to-female.[6] She began by cross-dressing for a few weeks before undergoing hormone replacement therapy and breast augmentation surgery.[6] She is half deaf on her right ear.[5]
