In the 1990s, porn went high-end with larger production teams, costumes, stories, screenplays, and porn corporations as a result of the mainstream’s ascent. Some of the greatest stars in the porn industry, such Maddison, Tera Heart, Belladona, and Stacy Valentine, rose to prominence during this time as well.

She was a pornstar from 1991 to 1993, but her contract with Vivid Entertainment was terminated due to her drug abuse and diva antics.
