From the somewhat ambiguous statements made over recent weeks by Kendra Sunderland, the infamous “library girl” who went on to serious porno stardom under the tutelage of acclaimed director Greg Lansky, is ditching onscreen dick-sucking in favor of continuing her education. That’s right, sports fans, Kendra Sunderland is retiring!

Rising to infamy after one of her very first webcam shows, one in which she flashed her chest and masturbated in the Oregon State University Library, went viral, Kendra Sunderland soon left her life as a struggling student and waitress for a full-blown career in webcamming. Initially rebuffing requests for hardcore bookings in the LA area, Sunderland eventually relented and shot a series of absolutely stunning showcases for Greg Lansky’s Vixen and Blacked sites. Rising quickly to the top of the porn world after initial shoots in men’s mags, Sunderland was soon the toast of the Valley, was crowned 2016’s Vixen Angel of the Year, and earned herself an AVN Award for Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene in 2017 with co-star Mick Blue.
All good things, as we all know, must come to an end, though, and Kendra Sunderland, who once admitted to the Daily Dot that she has has “a problem of just doing stuff without thinking through the consequences and researching it beforehand,” is leaving porn to find happiness at another educational institution. Telling her fans in late January of her decision to enroll in an Animal Sciences program, the starlet was met with congratulations, support, and a few tears. Further explaining her career plans, she revealed that her “retirement” isn’t truly a full retirement, just a distancing from the mainstream porn world. Vowing to continue developing content for her Porn Hub Premium and Only Fans profiles, Kendra won’t be stepping entirely out of adult, instead using her well established reputation to propel a self-directed performing career in a direction both more satisfying and sustainable.
So, while some fans will be crowing “She’ll be back!” and others will forever remove her from their mental porn-based spank bank, we at Mr. Pink’s would like to thank Ms. Sunderland for her contribution and express our best wishes for her future. The decision to enter porn is no doubt a hard one – though the record states it didn’t give Kendra much pause – and the decision to leave is far from simple, too, so we should congratulate the woman on potentially walking away from a career that made her a household name, the subject of millions’ of erections, and one of the most envied new performers in the adult world.
