France wasn’t enough

Although she studied to be a chef and worked as a pastry chef in a prestigious French restaurant, she needed more money and emotions. Everything started in June 2003, with an ad in a newspaper where a French director was looking for girls for his films. Only six days later, at the age of 19, she was already in front of the cameras. She started out very hard, straight into extreme porn, with anal sex and accepting very rough treatment for a newcomer. Therefore, there wasn’t doubt about it. She wouldn’t just stay there, she had everything she needed to succeed.

She crossed the border in record time, with the goal of doing business in the United States. Melissa Lauren didn’t need an adaptation period. She started shooting directly for top studios like New Sensations, Anabolic Video and Hustler Video. The actress continued on the path of hardcore porn, leaving behind some outstanding scenes, which are still highly recommended today. She loved hardcore sex, few actresses have enjoyed double anal penetrations and all kinds of humiliation as much as that young Frenchwoman. She was a true professional, never defrauded, always gave everything and became a real guarantee of quality scenes.

Where Legend Began

She shone especially in gangbangs. The more men the better. She usually entered into an ecstasy impossible to fake, one that only a true sex addict can enter. Also, she was slapped in the face like a good submissive, and of course, she always asked for more. She wasn’t good at deepthroating and always tried to choke, all the way to the bottom; it’s not unusual to see her vomit in her early years.

So many orgies took their toll, in 2005 she suffered a pelvic inflammatory disease for which she had to return to France for surgery. She recovered quickly and soon returned to the set, but as she said in an interview, her chances of becoming pregnant were already compromised. The following year her metamorphosis began. She had her boobs done, a cheekbone surgery and a rhinoplasty. Her natural beauty gave way to the appearance of a classic pornstar.

A woman entrepreneur

From 2006 she relaxed and started to shoot light sex. A porno closer to the mainstream, far away from the violent sexual practices that made her a legend. Melissa Lauren is a businesswoman and wanted to be more than an actress. She has worked as a gonzo filmmaker for Combat Zone, Diabolic Video and JM Productions. Her last years were spent between Europe (shooting mainly with Marc Dorcel) and the United States. She had the honor of being on the cover of Casino: No Limit (2008), the most expensive European production in history at the time.

In 2008, she retired permanently. She left her name burned into the history of hardcore porn, apart from 641 scenes according to IAFD. Of course, the industry recognized her talent, from 2006 to 2010 she was continuously nominated for the AVN awards. Although she only managed to get two, the Best Group Sex Scene by Fashionistas Safado: The Challenge (2006), and Best Three-way Sex Scene by Fashionistas Safado: Berlin (2007). But surely, if it depended on the spectators, she would win many more awards. Today, she is in great shape, turned into an impressive MILF that continues to satisfy her fans at ManyVids.
