11 Game-Changing Comebacks in the Adult Industry

AVN Hall of Famer and performer Lisa Ann is back in Evil Angel’s Lisa Ann: Back 4 More!, after leaving the industry in 2014 . The reverberations in the industry are already being felt. This is not a knee-jerk, money grab by the world’s most famous MILF and Sara Palin impersonator.

Lisa Ann wants real change in the industry, once again wanting to push the industry back on its toes as she did with her surprising-but-wonderful performances in her political porn parodies.

“I am producing, directing, writing, picking the music, photos & all my talent!” Lisa said on Twitter. Only Evil Angel could provide her an ideal home to come back to realize her vision with a female touch. Lisa Ann said she’ll also perform in every scene in her second movie, which is already in pre-production and has yet to be titled. In honor of Evil Angel’s Lisa Ann: Back 4 More, HotMovies has listed ten more game-changing career comebacks.

No. 1 – Lisa Ann

“Just because I feel like my fans have waited so long, I have to give them as much as I can. And then Evil will be hiring me to direct some projects for them. So I’m going to expand my palette by taking on some of their work as well – just here and there for something different for me and I won’t be in those scenes. I’ll just be doing more directing.”

Lisa is concerned with the treatment of young performers on set, the lack of foreplay, and some of the more dangerous extremes that performers push themselves into in order to stay relevant, and frankly, keep working. With Lisa Ann behind the camera, maybe some of the industry will see that foreplay works and is necessary for a dynamic coupling and scene.

Speaking to The Guardian, she claimed the difficulties some actresses face after leaving the adult industry often relate to the growing demand for extreme porn, and performers abusing drugs:

“There were times on set with people where I was like, ‘This is not a good situation. This is not safe. This girl is out of her mind and we’re not sure what she’s going to say when she leaves here. Everyone’s a ticking time bomb, and a lot of it is linked to the drugs. A lot of this new pain comes from these new girls who have to do these abusive scenes because that does break you down as a woman.”

Lisa Ann really wants to make all performers completely comfortable on set, understanding that this is how you get the most sexually intense scenes – through connection and mutual respect. Lisa Ann also indicated she would be donating a percentage of her proceeds each month to different charities. How awesome is that?

No. 2 – Briana Banks

The lovely and leggy Briana Banks began her career with some nude modeling back in 1999. She was once billed as having the longest stems in the industry. In April 2001 Banks signed a contract as a Vivid girl, a two-year contract with Vivid Video to appear in nine movies per year. She has performed in nearly 300 pornographic films in all genres of the business, from oral to anal, to lesbian scenes. It has been said that her oral and hand skills were a cut above the rest because of her manual dexterity, contributing to her nomination as Orgasmic Oralist in 2001. Banks was at the height of her career in June 2001 when she was named Pet of the Month in Penthouse magazine, which earned her an entirely new realm of fans and sealed her fate as an iconic porn star. In fact, Banks enjoyed a new wave of stardom when Sota Toys and Cyber F/X partnered up to create a Briana Banks action figure, the first time an adult film star was marketed with an action star. In 2004, she contributed to How to Have a XXX Life: The Ultimate Vivid Guide, and decided to take a break from the industry in 2006. “I wasn’t feeling it anymore and I met a guy,” Banks later said. “That’s usually the way it goes. He talked me into getting out.

Briana Banks returned to the industry in 2008 and earned five AVN Awards as if she had never left in the first place. In 2011, Banks did a parody in American Dad XXX, playing the character Francine Smith and landing the cover. But Banks decided to take some more time off, five years, before returning again in 2015, and there are no signs that she’ll be retiring again anytime soon – a fact that, no doubt, has thrilled her fanbase and owners of her action figure!

No. 3 – Brett Rossi

Quintessential California girl Brett Rossi left the industry in 2013. This sleek, tall-framed blonde beauty won the Miss Howard Stern TV pageant in December 2011, and Penthouse Pet of the Month for February 2012, paving her way for icon status in the industry. Rossi became known for her amazing girl/girl scenes, including the intense and authentic couplings for the lesbian powerhouse studio Girlfriends Films. Brett Rossi became engaged to bad-boy fuckstick Charlie Sheen in 2013. She also decided she wanted to return to nursing school. Her engagement with the Hot Shots star ended later that year.

Brett Rossi came back to the industry in 2017 with a proverbial bang. Don’t miss Rossi returning to her former glory as one of the best lesbian performers in the industry in Girlsway‘s 2018 release The Art of Pussy Eating. Nevermind nursing school, but Brett Rossi could teach a class on pussy eating at Harvard-level, no problem.

No. 4 – Tori Black

Tori Black entered the industry at the young age of 19, and not too much is known about her before she became a sexual icon. Tori Black is the first person in history to win two AVN Female Performer of the Year awards, winning back-to-back years in 2010 and 2011! Black made her directorial debut with Elegant Angel‘s Alina Li. Recognized by Loaded magazine as the “most facially attractive female performer in the industry” (2010), Black was subsequently placed on the list of “The Top 100 Hottest Porn Stars Right Now” for the lifestyle magazine Complex in 2011. Tori Black then took some time off with her husband in 2013 to focus on raising her children.

Tori Black returned to the industry in 2017 with Tori Black is Back from Lesbian X, directed by Mason. After a six-year hiatus, Lesbian X and her fans were foaming at the mouth to see her triumphant return. Tori Black is Back also features Black’s first-ever all-girl gangbang.

Hopefully, there will be many more boundary-breaking firsts from Tori Black as her returning star in the industry continues to rise and shine.

No. 5 – Ryan Conner

Blonde bombshell Ryan Conner was known for her anal prowess before she took a break from the industry in 2004. Conner wanted to shift her focus to music, but was also experiencing some health problems, so she decided to take a step back from adult entertainment. She also had a young daughter she wanted to spend more time with. Fans of Ryan Conner and her beautiful backside were heartbroken until she returned to the industry in 2015 with a literal bang!

After her time experimenting in the music industry, her health returned and Ryan Conner realized how much she loved working in porn. She missed it dearly. Conner returned utterly fearless, and filmed the first double-penetration of her career for Jules Jordan in the 2015 release, DP Masters 2. Conner has said she’s a little reticent about filming double-anal or double-vaginal scenes, but has promised to give her dedicated fanbase more gangbangs and even more creampies.

Don’t miss the wonderful Ryan Conner as she continues to push her sexual limits. In her latest offering on HotMovies, she plays an arrogant executive who just loves to degrade her worthless male employees in Superiority Complex 2 from MeanBitch Productions.

No. 6 – Gauge

Gauge started in the industry in 1999 after being drawn to adult entertainment by the sexual energy of dirty videos and magazines she would consume when she was younger. Gauge has been around in the industry for quite some time – and her return leads to a comeback that tells a story about how society can unfairly treat sex workers and performers in the adult industry. After appearing in over 140 titles, Gauge retired in early 2005 to try her hand in a different career. Gauge aspired to be a surgical technician and then also went on to try her hand in criminal justice, but Gauge’s employers had trouble reconciling her past career with her new one, so she found herself being unfairly ousted from several positions merely because she started her career in sex work.

She returned in 2013 to film some scenes for the studio Brazzers. Other than a few shoots here and there, she’s still flying a bit under the radar, but hopefully we’ll see more of Gauge and petite little frame in the future, and if not, hopefully she will get the respect she very much deserves in any upcoming endeavors that she ends up choosing. Don’t miss her and that angelic frame on HotMovies in Spinners from Kick Ass Pictures!

No. 7 – Hillary Scott

Multiple AVN and XCRO award-winner Hillary Scott moved to LA to pursue a career in the adult industry in 2004 after becoming bored with mundane world of banking. Becoming an insatiable XXX superstar suited Scott more than selling mortgage loans for the bank. She went on to perform in films for many different companies, such as Kick Ass Pictures, Vivid, Hustler Video, Juicy Entertainment, and many more. Her perfect casting in Not the Bradys XXX is her crowning achievement and one of her biggest commercial successes. Hillary Scott took time off from the industry in the late 2000s but returned in 2016.

After six years, Hillary Scott decided to come back to the industry to satisfy a certain curiosity; she wanted to see how it felt returning to the industry a little more seasoned, a little older, and with some more experience. But Scott is an LA girl at heart. While living in Chicago working as a makeup artist, the ennui of normal life drove Scott right back to the loving arms of her adoring fans. Don’t miss Hillary Scott in her latest on HotMovies in Huster Video’s Teens Swing With Couples.

Hillary Scott holds the record for most XRCO Awards won by a performer in one night, winning Female Performer of the Year, Best Actress, Orgasmic Analist, Orgasmic Oralist, and Superslut at the 2007 XRCO Awards Show, and has yet to find a role that she was not perfectly cast for. Here’s hoping for many more years to come for eager fans to witness HIllary Scott’s sexual appetite onscreen!

No. 8 – Gia Paloma

Rumor has it that back in 2003, Gia Paloma entered the porn industry to get back at an ex-boyfriend. Her desire for revenge fueled the desire of countless fans who instantly fell in love with her performances due to her natural edginess and the fact that Paloma fucking hustles her ass off in every scene she does. And those beautiful lips of hers probably have a fanbase of their very own.

Gia Paloma has even tried her hand directing the Nasty Hard Sex series for No Boundaries Studios in 2004-2005. With over 430 adult titles on her resume, Paloma has an amazing body of work, often performing in anal, creampie, double penetration, interracial, lesbian, cum-swallowing, and solo films. She married Tommy Pistol and had one child with him. In late 2007 decided to retire to become a full-time make-up artist.

However, the party wasn’t over for Paloma, and she decided to return to the industry to shoot scenes again. The announcement made message boards across the web light up in delight – Gia has a very dedicated fanbase, and you can see her once again right here on HotMovies in Cougar’s Revenge from SheWillCheat.com.

No. 9 – Jade Nile

<a href="//hm.adultempire.com/663274/jade-nile-pornstar.html

Jade Nile is a gorgeous free spirit with auburn hair and piercing brown eyes. She got her start in the industry in 2014 after having car trouble. Nile could not afford to get the problem fix, so she decided to go another route. Jade Nile first dipped her toes into webcamming and found that she absolutely loved the work, and she rose to stardom from there. The lovely Nile jumped right into the industry and worked her ass off through 2016 when she slowed down and took a break. Not an official retirement or even a very long leave of absence, once Nile slowed down her fans were clamoring for more.

<a href="//hm.adultempire.com/663274/jade-nile-pornstar.html

The sexy naturalist and yoga lover returned to the business this year with a renewed vigor, fresh set of long, beautiful locks, and a voracious sexual appetite. Don’t miss her in Girlfriends Films‘ lesbian sexfest Women Seeking Women Volume 154!

No. 10 – Raylene

California-native Raylene got her big break in adult entertainment in the late nineties. Ironically, she originally wanted to be a Christian high school teacher, but instead, the lovely Raylene went down another road once Vivid Entertainment came knocking. Raylene was quickly pegged as one of the industry’s fastest rising stars. She starred in nearly 500 adult titles through the course of her career before retiring in 2001 to focus on real estate. But then in late 2008, we had the great housing crisis and crash. Due to the state of the economy, Raylene had to reconsider her options.

Raylene returned to porn briefly in 2009 to make some extra cash to help support her and her young son. Unfortunately, this raven-haired beauty announced her retirement again in 2014 via Twitter. In 2017, Raylene was inducted into the XCRO Hall of Fame. Don’t miss her big comeback film from 2009, Raylene’s Dirty Work!

No. 11 – Madison Ivy

Madison Ivy’s adult industry debut took place in 2007, and since then this German-American knockout has been starring in film after film for notable studios like Adam & Eve, Wicked, Combat Zone, and others. She also received numerous AVN Award nominations as fans went wild for Ivy. Madison Ivy was the first contract girl to work for Brazzers back in 2013. Her career began to soar until a tragedy in January 2015. Madison has quite the incredible comeback story.

Madison Ivy was in a car accident, severely injuring her back and stomach. She could no longer perform, and her ascending career had to be put on hold while she recovered. With the help of a friend, Madison Ivy posted this message to her fans from the hospital:

“For anyone who doesn’t know, I won’t be posting stuff for a while. I was the passenger in a car accident about 10 days ago, I’ve been in the hospital ever since. I fractured my spine and tore my stomach open, it’s going to be a long slow road to recovery. I can still move my legs luckily, but I will be off my feet for a month, maybe 2, maybe longer we are still unsure. All things happen for a reason and I am just happy to be alive. Live life, love, rave, and just know even when life is hard you have love of good people around you.”

It was a long recovery, but Madison Ivy would return to the industry that she loved and loved her so much. She returned to filming in 2017 for Brazzers and it was if this superstar never missed a moment. Fans all over were overwhelmed to see Ivy overcome such adversity. Here’s to many more years with Madison Ivy, and don’t miss her in Kevn Moore‘s love letter to big, beautiful breasts, the tit-stravaganza Big Tit Superstars #2!
