Fivestar is an adult industry director and producer who works with a diverse crew and talent pool to produce high-quality adult entertainment that celebrates alternative sexualities.
She employs clear communication, respectful interactions, and a collaborative relationship with performers to maintain a positive experience for all on set. She believes that these practices not only result in compelling content but also promote a culture of sex positivity that validates the viewer’s own sexuality.
Over the past 13 years, Fivestar has worked on over 1,200 movies, directing over 500 of them. She co-owns a high-volume video production company, Luster Productions, that creates about 150 movies annually for the renowned BDSM website Kink.com. Her work has been spotlighted by outlets such as Wired, Gizmodo, Engadget, and Viceland.
As someone who has long embraced innovation, Fivestar helped turn virtual reality porn into a genre and is the creator and director of KinkVR.com. She also built a custom-video commerce site, CustomFilth.com, and is developing a resource for performers and small producers who are barred from using mainstream business tools. She celebrates the technological advancements spurred by the adult industry and believes that its resilience in the face of legal challenges, stigma, and censorship has benefited society as a whole, allowing more room for sexual expression.
Fivestar has been an outspoken voice in the industry, participating in panels about consent and the role of adult entertainment in tech and fighting for performer rights by lobbying state officials with the trade organization the Free Speech Coalition. Most recently, she launched the podcast Hot Points, which has tackled adult industry issues such as mental health resources, safer sex, and the challenges of operating a small media company in a sector dominated by giants.
In her spare time, Fivestar enjoys dancing, playing her ukulele, and hanging out with her wife and their German shepherd mix, Bobby.
