When choosing a porn name, one has to decide whether ubiquity or uniqueness is the intended effect, whether a name should propel its less-than-sexually-remarkable bearer to the heights of superstardom or doom someone of superior ability to a life of third-tier roles in third-tier pictures at third-tier studios. Jenna Sativa may have chosen to brand herself with two of terms commonly heard tossed around a porn set – someone’s always vaping for a head high and there’s bound to be a Jenna nearby or a story told of a more famous Jenna of porn’s past – but she’s hardly fading into adult obscurity. Quite the contrary, really.
Hot on the heels of an impressive haul last awards season, the XBIZ Girl-Girl and AVN All-Girl Performer of the Year, has just cemented her place in porn’s top echelon of stars by being appointed Penthouse Pet of the Year for 2017. After stealing the spotlight in Penthouse’s April 2016 issue, Ms. Sativa must’ve struck a chord with readers and publishers alike. A performer devoted entirely to solo and girl-girl scenes, Sativa has been tantalizing viewers of all genders and persuasions, proving integral to the powerful GirlsWay network and earning Cherry Pimps’ ‘Cherry of the Month’ title back in January among her other successes.
Often seen starring alongside real-life girlfriend Shyla Jennings, Sativa may not be interested in shooting with men but her legion of male (and female) fans don’t seem to mind an iota, eagerly expanding their own viewing horizons by engaging with the impassioned sapphic performances she has shot for a variety of studios. From four-way massage fantasies to a wildly brutal “fruit salad” lesbian lunch scene over at Evil Angel that must be seen to be believed, Jenna Sativa stands as proof that you don’t need to suck dick to make it big in the porn worlds both niche and mainstream.
Kudos to you, Jenna and may the rest of the 2017 be as promising as these first months.
