Nikki Benz Porn Star Biography
Nikki Benz has been able to transition from dancing and modeling to superstar success in the adult entertainment business. As an actress, she has appeared in more than 200 films and even directed one of her projects. Not satisfied with remaining just a porn star, Benz has been able to cross over into mainstream entertainment as a host on various shows and making personal appearances. At one point Nikki Benz had political aspirations to become mayor of her home town of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Career & Films
In her own words, Nikki Benz describes her early leap into porn: "I grew up in Toronto, Canada, where I started bikini modeling. I've done calendars, pageants, bikini contests, etc. That was all fun, but I wanted to make some real cash, so I started [exotic] dancing at the age of 18. After two years of dancing, I wanted to take it a step further. That step was getting into porn. Just before my 21st birthday, I contacted an adult film director. Shortly thereafter, I flew out to Florida to film Strap on Sally 20 and 21. After making my first two films, I got a contract from Pleasure Productions."
Nikki Benz's early dive into the adult entertainment business has been extremely successful for her as she was able to sign on with several of the larger studios such as Jill Kelly Productions (2004) and TeraVision (2005). These liaisons brought her the exposure and notice to be featured in many of the popular adult magazines such as Penthouse, High Society, and Hustler, among others. Attaining magazine cover girl status brought recognition as Penthouse Pet of the Month for April 2010. She subsequently achieved the coveted Penthouse Pet of the Year honor for 2011.
Her film career has taken on epic proportions as Nikki Benz has worked for most of the top studios, including Brazzers, Wicked, Third Degree, Jules Jordan Video, and Vivid. She has performed with many top-rated co-stars in the business. Nikki shares multiple performances with the likes of Alektra Blue, Tyler Faith, Marco Banderas, Mick Blue, and Tommy Gunn. The following represent a small sample of her top-rated films: Porn Fidelity Volume 7, Big Tits Boss, 3's Company, All Star Celebrity XXX - Nikki Benz, and Strap on Lovers.
Nikki Benz was a contract star for Brazzers up until a dispute with a director that led to a legal battle. TMZ and other mainstream entertainment outlets reported on Benz's allegations.
In 2020, Nikki Benz had the honor of hosting the AVN Awards.
A star of the magnitude of Nikki Benz is always seeking opportunities to cast a wider glow. Her range of talents afforded her opportunities outside of porn. Along with fellow stars Lisa Ann and Sean Michaels, Nikki Benz hosted the XRCO Awards in April 2010. Furthermore she has made several appearances on the FoxSports.com show "Cubed." In 2012 she was featured in a video game "Saints Row - The Third - The Penthouse Pack." A woman of many interests, Benz says she loves hip hop. As such she has appeared in a music video, "Lose Yourself," and also she appeared briefly in the film Pain and Gain. Making her dramatic film debut in My Trip Back to the Dark Side, Nikki Benz was directed by the Emmy Award winning director, Shane Stanley.
Currently residing in Los Angeles, California, Nikki Benz owns and operates her own company, Nikki Benz, Inc., where she produces content for her own website. At one time she hosted a show on KSEX with fellow stars (Ashley Steele, Lacie Heart, Stormy Daniels and Tyler Faith) called Contract Superstars; however, due to time constraints she was forced to withdraw from that project.
In May 2014, Benz announced that she would be running for mayor of Toronto, against controversial sitting mayor Rob Ford, on Twitter. The announcement was subsequently covered by the international mainstream news outlets like Huffington Post, TMZ, Playboy.com, BBC, Yahoo! France, and more. On May 28, 2014, Benz attempted to submit her application to run for Mayor of Toronto, but the city couldn't accept her application because her Ontario driver's license was expired.
