Karen Summer Porn Star Biography

Karen Summer, a woman of many aliases is an American actress who became an icon in the adult entertainment business during what is described as The Golden Age of Porn. She started in the business at age 20. Indeed one of the early hot stars of porn, Karen began her career in 1982 and remained active until she left in 1993; however, Karen Summer recently "returned home" back to an industry where she found success and acclaim as well as personal fulfillment. In July 2014, after a 20-year hiatus, Karen Summer is back in front of the cameras and full of excitement about picking up where she left off. Of course when last seen Karen was hard at work in the business of performing in films and dancing. A highly successful award-winning artist, she worked for the top-named producers at the time, many of which continue to produce content into the 21st century. Karen Summer was privileged to work with what were called the "porn chic" stars of the Golden Age of Porn, including Ron Jeremy, Joey Silvera, John Holmes, and Herschel Savage.

Career

Starlet Karen Summer began working in the adult entertainment industry at age 20 in 1982 with "Centerfold Celebrities." Summer's first few performances are often described as sub-par or even uninteresting, but over the course of her early career, she learned to heat up the action for the cameras considerably until she was described as a brazen sex kitten. A blonde of buxom proportions back then, she had all earmarks for instant sex appeal. During the heyday of her career, she appeared in more than 150 films. Then in 1993, Karen walked away from the adult entertainment to resume a so-called normal life.

But the allure of the business had a greater pull, especially during the ebb and flow of Karen's life cycle. So into her 40s and after 20 years away from porn, Karen says things are different. Making a come-back to the business as a self-described "exuberant cougar" Karen returns to her roots with the same sexual intensity that she possessed two decades earlier. She resumes performing girl/girl, boy/girl, fetish, and interracial content. However her subject matter may take a decidedly more mature approach. Already in 2014, she has filmed Horny Grannies Love to Fuck 6 (Devil's Films).

Studios, Co-Stars & Films

In recently published interviews with Karen Summer, she evokes memories of some of her past films, including Playing with Fire (with Randy West), Taboo 4 (with John Leslie), Daisy Chain (with Peter North), Educating Nina (with Nina Hartley) and The Animal in Me (with Jerry Butler). Though she recently worked with studios like Devil's Films and Western Visuals, Karen Summer will be delighted to know that in her 20-year absence from the business, a plethora of new studios are waiting to showcase her talents in a broad spectrum of new, more nuanced ways now that the digital medium has made porn more instantly accessible to a broader range of discerning clients. When in the past her talents may have been viewed by a few people who took the time to travel to cinemas or venues where her art was displayed, the twenty-first century has an unlimited number of ways which her work can be seen--from hand-held devices to workstations, to television sets, to flat screens and a host of devices in between. This diva from the past is walking into a whole new world!

Mainstream

Karen intends to continue feature dancing and burlesque appearances. Additionally, she hosts a radio show (XXXPornStarRadio.com) so people can get to know her once again. Her two-hour show revolves around the adult entertainment business with guests and topics of interest to the business. She will resume personal appearances at industry conventions to promote her newfound interests. Interestingly, Karen indicates that prior to her porn career her family was in motion picture business, during which time she got to work on the mainstream television series "The Dukes of Hazzard." Assuming parts as a stand-in, photo double, an extra and a P.A., Karen says it was great fun.

Awards

Karen Summer's body of work has been well received by the industry and her peers. Though awards for her individual artistry have been few, she is credited with collaborating on many top-rated films, including Taboo 4, the film that won the 1987 AVN Award winner for Best Total Sexual Content. New content like Horny Grannies Love to Fuck #6 will undoubtedly raise her profile and catapult her to newfound fame and acclaim.

Interesting Facts

Summer attended the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas January 21 to 24, 2014, where she signed merch at the Protecting Adult Welfare booth and was inducted into the Legends of Erotica Hall of Fame at Showgirl Video on Friday, January 23, 2014.

"Karen tells AVN that she genuinely enjoys what she does and has missed the excitement of being in front of the camera. A versatile performer, she is still a sexual dynamo best suited for MILF and cougar roles. She is exploring work for all major companies, looking into content trades for building her website KarenSummerXXX.com, and seriously considering all options."
