Pornsaint Annie Sprinkle
Annie Sprinkle is our first "Pornsaint ad honorem". She has 35+ years of experience in sexually oriented entertainment, education and art. She began her career in 1973, worked as a prostitute and a porn star for twenty years, then toured the USA in burlesque for four years with her own brand of performance called “Strip Speak.” She pioneered a variety of sex film genres and was a mover and shaker in the 80’s sex positive feminist movement. She evolved into a producer/director of her own “post porn” films, became an internationally acclaimed performance artist, and an innovative sex educator. She became the first porn star to earn a Ph.D.. Always eager to help sex workers to be healthy and happy, and to counter societies prejudice, judgementalism, and bad laws, Sprinkle started the International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers, which is now observed annually in many countries and cities around the worldShe well deserve the pornsaint title, and she will stay right there in the very top of the Pornheavens.
