LAist favorite Sasha Grey has been quite a media sensation due to her leading role in Steven Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience, with film critic Roger Ebert even observing that "I haven't seen any of [her adult work], but now I would like to see one, watching very carefully, to see if she suggests more than one level."

But we would be remiss if we didn't sing the praises of another pornstar. Enter Belladonna. One of the few to have achieved iconic status on par with Jenna Jameson and Tera Patrick, she has been successful on-camera and behind-the-scenes as director and businesswoman with the creation of Belladonna Entertainment, the production company that she runs with her husband Aiden from their home in the San Fernando Valley. She's also enjoyed mainstream crossover success from being cast by director James Gunn in four PG-Porn episodes, including Peanus, A Very Peanus Christmas, High Poon, and the upcoming Genital Hospital, and appeared as a special guest last month at The Improv.

Pursuing her longtime interest in radio, Belladonna launched her weekly Internet broadcast in January after returning from the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo and Adult Movie Awards in Las Vegas, and her guests have included pornstars Kimberly Kane, Marie Luv, Lexi Belle, Ava Rose, and James Deen. But last Monday, she brought her friend, local singer-songwriter Terra Naomi, into the studio for an hour-long interview and performance.
