Christy Canyon (born on June 17, 1966 in Pasadena, California, U.S.) is a retired
American pornographic actress and current radio personality.
Canyon appeared in nearly 200 adult films. Canyon has won several "best female
performance" awards and is a member of the XRCO and AVN Halls of Fame. She
retired from (and returned to) the adult business several times. In 1999, AVN
rated her as one of the top twenty-five adult stars of all time. She is known
for her natural 36DD breasts.
In a 2005 interview on Taylor Wane's radio show, Canyon stated that although
on-camera she had protected sex (with condoms) with all of her male co-stars
during her time with Vivid Entertainment in the mid 1990s, this was definitely
not something she practiced in her private life. Canyon stated that she engaged
in unprotected sex with every one of her male co-stars off camera, prior to
their filmed sex scenes. In her personal life, Canyon has dated directors John
Frankenheimer and Adam Rifkin. As of 2009 she works on Sirius XM Satellite Radio's
Playboy Radio as cohost, with Nicki Hunter, of the show Night Calls.
Canyon retired and returned to films several times during her career, mainly
due to changes in her marital status. Currently, she is retired from performing
in films, but still has an adult-related career, concentrating on her web site,
working as a host for Playboy Radio, and selling merchandise on eBay. In 2003,
she published her autobiography: Lights, Camera, Sex (ISBN 0-9727470-0-1). In
November 2005, she appeared as a judge on the first season of Jenna's American
