Born in Georgia and raised in Florida, Sunny Lane has been an entertainer almost all of her life. The energy
burning bright in her megawatt smile and glowing sensuality is a powerful combination of dedication,
determination and desire.
"Well, I've always been focused and had goals and dreams," says Lane. "You've got to do that to make it all happen. You have to be a risk taker."
As a competitive roller skater, Lane spent her childhood on the national circuit, rising to the level of regional champion. An only child, Lane has strong family ties. Her parents, married for 29 years, took her on summer vacations to Disney World and Yellowstone. Lane was a member of the local Brownie troop and her mother sewed her skating costumes.
"My parents were very big on me getting a good education and finishing school," Lane recalls. "I had to have good grades to be able to skate."
"They are very open-minded, strong willed people that taught me great morals of life and love. I was raised with a great work ethic, in an honest family upbringing; I don't lie, cheat or steal," she adds.
Continuing on to become a professional ice skater; she suffered potentially career-ending injuries in a car accident at the age of 16, but defied the doctors' diagnosis to go on and compete on a pro-am level, while also coaching young ice skaters and operating her own yoga and Pilates studio. Eventually, health issues caused her to reevaluate the goals of remaining a pro athlete and coach.
"I had to rethink my career and where I was going, and what I would be able to do. I wanted to continue entertaining; show my creativity, tell a story and entertain people to keep them smiling. I thought about how I'd be able to continue doing all this, and that's when becoming an exotic dancer came to mind," Lane explains.
Natural and charismatic, Lane hit the stage in 2004, winning DÃ©jÃ Vu Showgirl of the Year and began her ascent into world of adult entertainment. After attending an industry awards show, she felt herself gravitating towards adult celebrities and industry insiders.
"I was intrigued and impressed by the people I met and could see how real and open-minded they were. I liked the way they were able to combine entertainment and business with sexuality, because I have always been a very sexual person," Lane says.
Dennis Hoff, owner of the Moonlight Bunny Ranch, the Nevada brothel featured in HBO's Cathouse reality series, was one of the people Lane met and with whom she eventually started a personal relationship. After several months of promotions and assisting Hoff with the business, they parted. Lane continued forward with her career.
As Nightmoves Calendar cover girl for 2005, Lane attended an industry event where she met Farrell Hirsch, executive producer of Playboy Radio. Noting Lane's girl-next-door looks and homegrown personality, he offered Lane a chance to come to LA, accompanied by her mother, to guest star on the Night Calls radio program with Julie Aston and Tiffany Granath. Within a week of arriving, Lane had secured an agent and was filming her first adult shoot.
Faced with the possibility of their daughter becoming an onscreen erotic star, Lane says, "My parents' first reaction was, 'You're an adult - do what makes you happy.' I asked them for support and that's what they gave me. They handled it with dignity and pride. They just want me to be happy."
"We love our daughter and we support her unconditionally, no matter what she decides to do," say Mom and Dad. "We instilled our morals, values, strength and will power. We've always told her, if you've go it, flaunt it. We support her 120% and stand by her."
Quickly taken in by the adult community, veteran porn legend Ron Jeremy became Lane's mentor and best friend. And her list of industry friends and supporters reads like an erotic Who's Who: Seymore Butts, April Storm, Nina Hartley, Devon Lane, Christy Canyon, Ginger Lynn, Serena, Bill Margold, Sean Michaels and James Avalon, to name a few.
Known as a relentless self-promoter - the "Energizer Bunny" of porn - Lane appears at every opportunity and event, smiling, enthusiastic and ready for action. At a recent party for the launch of the XFanz website, she headlined the burlesque acts that were part of the evening's entertainment and then quickly changed gears, to sing back-up with adult performer Kurt Lockwood's band, the Porn City Punks.
She has made guest appearances on numerous radio and television programs, including Playboy Radio and TV, the Adam Carolla Radio, Radio Chick, The Good Fellas Radio Show, Derek and Romaine and Jason Ellis on Sirius radio, Opie and Anthony, WET Radio, Comedy Central, Showtime, Cinemax, HBO and E! She also has a regular spot on KSEX's (The Wanker Show) every Wednesday night.
In print, she's graced the covers of People magazine Australia, Adam Film World, Genesis Magazine, Private Dancer Magazine, Lollypops, Live Young Girls, Finally Legal, Hustler XXX, Hawk, Xcitement Magazine, Xscene, Tight Magazine, and LA XÂ¦press a few times. She has been featured in such magazines as the Special Edition Lingerie Issue featuring the Women of Playboy TV, Playboy's Hot Shots of 2007, Penthouse Letters, Fox Magazine, Hustler, AVN, Hot DVD Video, Adult Store Buyer, Exposed and OUI.
In just two short years Sunny has accomplished the following: 2005 Nightmoves Magazine Calendar cover girl, 2005 Nightmoves Best New Starlet Editors Choice, 2006 FOXE Vixen award, AEBN VOD Most Downloaded Newbie award, Miss Congeniality 2006 at Nightmoves Awards, KSEX Best Badonkadonk in The House, and XFanz Top 10 Adult Performer News Makers of 2006. Lane has 5 nominations at the 2007 AVN Awards (including a second nomination for Best Actress).
As an entertainer, she lights up the screen with sexy-sweet looks and a charisma that recalls the Golden Age of porn. Onstage, her showgirl style illuminates her abilities as a singer and dancer. On-camera, she displays the sexual prowess that makes a legendary adult performer.
"Being a professional ice skater, you have to have confidence when you step out onto the ice, and you have to exude that same confidence in the adult industry, when you step out on the screen," Lane explains. "It's not really much different at all."
"I love embracing my sexuality and am happy with myself, inside and out. I see myself as an entertainer/entrepreneur; a shining star to the mainstream audience that will blow people away with my sex goddess body. Something that you can't deny - watch out, here I come! The girl-next-door gone hardcore," she laughs.
Plans for Lane are geared towards career-building, reaching goals and establishing herself as an all around-performer. "I've always wanted to learn to be a better actress, in front of the TV camera and do more work on radio, to bring adult and mainstream together."
Later, there will be time for more traditional pursuits; having the right man in her life, raising a family and returning to her roots as a health and wellness professional, with a yoga/Pilates studio of her own.
"Someday, I'll be giving back, doing charitable work for all types of organizations," says Lane, who has worked with various organizations including Vince Neil charities and the B.A.B.E. (Breast Awareness Benefits Everyone) charity. "I don't forget where I come from. Spending time with family is the most important thing in life and you should never forget the realness"
Staying centered and focused isn't always easy, while living life in the fast lane. It's a matter of perspective and priorities for a young woman trying to climb to into the stratosphere of sex celebrity. Sunny Lane just keeps on shining.

PornstarEmpire.com: Can you tell us a little bit about your background and how you got involved in the adult industry?
Sunny Lane: Definitely. My name is Sunny Lane, and I started off as a professional ice skater. I had an injury that got me out of skating, and I got into the world of dancing at Déjà Vu - which was a blast. That was down in Tampa, Florida. I started dancing the first year I was there...I became Showgirl of the Year for 2004. Nightmoves magazine is the local magazine down there. They had a calendar search for 2005. I became the calendar cover girl for them. They brought me out to AVN back in 2005, and I went there to go check it out and see what all the hot people were all about...the ins and outs of things and to see if that's what I really wanted to do. And sure enough, it was, and Playboy came up to me and said "you have the look that we want," I'm only 5-foot tall, no tattoos, with strawberry blonde hair and hazel eyes. And so I went back home to Tampa, and what do you know...I got with them and came out to California and got on Juli Ashton & Tiffany Granath's radio show, which was truly spectacular. They loved me, and that night they invited me to their TV show.
Sunny Lane: Of course I remember who it was for because it was very memorable. Because it's your first one, you know what I mean? My first photo shoot...because that's what I did first...was for Matrix Content with Chris Evans. And then my first video was with New Sensations for Brother Love, and that was his first movie ever directing. It was a P.O.V., called POV Fantasy Vol. 1. I'm on the cover in a little blue and white "Dorothy" outfit with a little white ribbon...it's really sexy and cute. My first movie was POV, and it was so awesome, because I was in control.
Sunny Lane: Oh, of course! I love cock, but I also love women!
Sunny Lane: I love cock!
Sunny Lane: Gosh, I love to work with everybody...they're all so wonderful. I would definitely say Kurt Lockwood, Mark Davis, Mark Ashley, Tommy Gunn, Evan Stone...I love all the "big boys" - you know, the veterans. Ladies...I love to work with Rita Faltoyano, Flower Tucci, Karina Kay, Lacie Heart...she's in She Bangs with me.
Sunny Lane: Christy Canyon...Jessica Drake...Jesse Jane...all those hot ladies!
Sunny Lane: Definitely. The "He-Man". Do you know that one? Put this in your mind...I sit you down on a chair, I jump on top of you...facing you...straddling my legs. I then put your hands underneath my legs, and then you lift me up and sit me right down on your cock. And then what you do is you start working me like your curling me. Then you stand up and you lift me like He-Man...up and down, nice and hard. Great camera position...great orgasm position...send it out there, the "He-Man"!
Sunny Lane: Well, it's always neat, because you always get to do new things. I got to be in this new movie called Pussy Party Unwrapped for Cousin Stevie. It was amazing...I was with eight ladies. The most I have ever been with. Super hot! And that was a fantasy of mine that I've always had.
Sunny Lane:She Bangs for Red Light District. It was my first two guys ever - Manuel Ferrara and John Strong. I was playing with two extremely hot cocks and two extremely hot men.
Sunny Lane: Well, the two I just mentioned - She Bangs and Cousin Stevie's Pussy Party. Also for Shane's World, Devinn Lane's Swingers - we all went to Texas to a big swingers' resort...you've got to check it out, I'm on the cover. Then Britney Rears 2: I Wanna Get Laid. Hot Bods & Tail Pipe 30 by Lethal Hardcore. And there's one by John Leslie at Evil Angel that just came out...it's called Fresh Meat 21, and I'm on the cover of that one...it's hot!
Sunny Lane: I love working out, and staying healthy. Watching movies, and going out around the town...out here in California. I've been in the business a year and four months now, and am really enjoying it and loving it - and so I'm just working hard on my business and my company and keep doing what I'm doing and growing.
Sunny Lane: Actually, I'm starting to get recognized more that I thought I would. Things have happened pretty quick, and I love it...everybody has a great response. I've been out and people walk up and ask "Are you Sunny Lane?"...it's truly awesome. I love the fact that people recognize me and the appreciation for what I'm doing, because I work really hard and give 110% in my movies, and it makes me feel good when people recognize me for that.
Sunny Lane: Well, I definitely don't want to stop anytime soon. I'm having a great time. I get to experience new things and be creative. So, I'm just really exited about everything and working hard and working on my website, sunnylanexxx.com. I've also made the cover of People magazine in Australia, and also Playboy magazine's special lingerie issue for the women of Playboy TV. So I'm just getting out there in mainstream areas and letting people know about what we do, and staying positive and letting people know you can have fun and enjoy your life and appreciate who you are.
