Elegant Angel is a company that lives to rank and categorize pornstars. From the always-successful Performers of the Year releases to feature titles celebrating a woman who has finally earned herself a headline role, Elegant Angel’s features often focus on achievements made by performers instead of a niche sexual act like so many other studios. Now, after the success of its 100 Sexiest Porn Stars Ever and 25 Sexiest Boobs Ever countdowns, EA once again let the fans have their say, urging them to vote for the 25 Sexiest Black Porn Stars Ever. The results? Well, they’re a little predictable but worth celebrating nonetheless.
While I can’t help but think it’s a little absurd to keep African American performers firmly in their own category while the white girls and Latinas battle it out in the unqualified, racially diverse Sexiest Pornstars poll – only three black performers made that list: Roxy Reynolds, Pinky, and Jada Fire – is that simply because black women in porn have proven to be fairly unpopular? Lex Steele and Prince Yashua are top draws, perpetuating the myth of dominant black male sexuality (though you can hardly blame them or their generous genes for that), while black women seem relegated to niche releases. If Nyomi Banxxx is the sexiest black female performer of all time, how come she didn’t make the general top 100 poll?
Although Elegant Angel hasn’t disclosed the numerical rank of the 25 Sexiest Black Porn Stars Ever, here are the names emblazoned on the box art: Nyomi Banxxx, Jada Fire, Skin Diamond, Misty Stone, Megan Vaughan, Roxy Reynolds, Bethany Benz, Baby Cakes, Marie Luv, Pinky, Ana Foxxx, Catalina Taylor, Evanni Solei, Vanessa Blue, Cherokee, Carmen Hayes, Olivia Winters, Kitten, Bella Moretti, Leilani Leeane, Lacey Duvalle, Jasmine Cashmere…
Well, that’s 22 of them. Who are the other three? I guess we’ll have to wait until 25 Sexiest Black Porn Stars Ever inches closer to confirming a release date. In the meantime, Complex ranked their favorite black adult performers and came up with some decidedly different results.
