Pornstar Tory Lane was born September 30, 1982 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. After graduating from High School Tory’s family gave her an ultimatum. She either had to go to college or else. Tory however still wasn’t sure what she wanted to do with her life so she went to Broward Community College to appease her family and got an associate’s degree in business. Little did she know, years later it would be that very degree that would help her manage her own career … a career in porn.
Tory Lane Biography
While in school Tory worked as a bartender at the Elbo Room in Ft. Lauderdale and also later as a waitress at Hooters. One night she decided to enter an amateur contest as a local strip club with her girlfriend, who she shared an apartment with, Harmony Rose. It went well and both girls made a lot of money at it. Soon after Tory met her boyfriend and her girlfriend Harmony met her own boyfriend. It happened to be a guy who knew male porn legend Peter North. Harmony Rose went off to Los Angeles to do a scene with him. She came back to Florida after it was all over telling Tory all about how great it was.
Tory Lane and her best friend Harmony Rose
Tory decided to go back to LA with her roommate and start a new life … a life as a porn star.
Tory had previously met a representative of LA Direct Models, a so called talent agency that supplies the adult industry with actresses and models for adult movies and magazine spreads. The girls contacted the rep they spoke with before and signed a contract. Tory’s boyfriend at the time didn’t come with her, but they did stay together. Tory said he was very open minded about it and that he’s the general manager of three porn stores in S. Florida. He’s not total square-minded. He’s cool.
Almost immediately after Tory did her first film her family went through some what Tory describes as drama and she decided to leave the porn business behind her and go back home to Florida. This so called family drama that Tory stated, must have come from her father as her mother has always been extremly supportive of what Tory does. In fact, prior to Tory Lane became a pornstar she told her mom I’m going to get my slice of the pie. Her mom said, Get the whole pie.
All of her personal appearances were canceled and as fast as she got into the business, she was out. However as soon as Tory got home, she realized that she could do it and if she was going to be a porn star she was going to work hard and be the best she could be. She returned back to LA and began working hard.
Tory’s done over 200 performances in adult movies since she began in 2004.
In 2006 Tory Lane made her directorial debut with Assploitations 7, featuring none other than herself and her best friend and former roommate Harmony. The movie is described as a butthole bonanza with little cock hungry anal sluts.
In 2007 (possibly early 2008) they will release Assploitations 8, of which Tory also directed. This movie is said to be hand down, one of the nastiest anal themed porn epics of all time.
Unlike most pornstars of Tory Lane’s caliber, she has yet to settle down with a company and sign a long term contract. It’s in fact very unusual that she doesn’t have an offer from porn big boys like Vivid or Wicked or even the lesser, VCA or Digital Playground. Perhaps that’s something we can look foward to in the future.
Tory Lane is described by those on the business side of things in the adult business as having a great attitude and a true pleasure to work with. Tory Lane is said to be a hard worker, never complains and is willing to try anything at least once.
Tory Lane says she’s not into the whole drug scene and doesn’t respect the girls in the business who are. She considers them flakes but tries not to let them bother her to much and knows they won’t be around for to long with their bad work ethics.
Don’t get me wrong though, Tory Lane is no church mouse. In fact, she’s far from it! When we asked Tory to tell us about her past she says that she studied ballet since she was 6 and like most little girls, she wanted to grow up and be a prima ballerina. But by the time she hit 16 she lost her virginity and hung out with potheads but despite her wild and crazy teenage days, she still did fairly well in school, getting a b average and even going on to get an associates degree in business.
Tory and her boyfriend from back home would eventually break up, especially since the met the man she would marry while working one day. When on the set of one of her movies Tory met and fell in love with Rick Shameless who was the director of the film.
Tory and Rick dated for a few months and Rick even went to meet Tory’s mom. Then one day they woke up and decided to head out to Las Vegas to get married and that they did.
Both Tory and Rick’s mothers were happy about the union but Tory’s father wasn’t so giddy. He even hung up on her when he heard the news. It seems he wanted to throw his daughter a big wedding. After her marriage she decided to only work with other females (lesbian only stuff) however the company who represented her (LA Direct) didn’t want any more lesbian only girls, so they didn’t renew her contract that year so Tory had to find work on her own.
In 2006 Tory Lane and Rick Shameless annulled their marriage. There was no official given reason as to why and eventually Tory went on with her life and back to working with men and even signed another years contract with LA Direct that only seemed to last about a year because as of August of 2007 Tory Lane is no longer listed as represented by the company.
In May of 2007 Tory Lane signed a two year contract with Sin City, under which Lane will exclusively perform AND DIRECT movies for the company. Tory Lane at that time seemed to have dropped her contract with LA Direct Models as her management company as she was no longer listed at their website as a current client. However in January of 2008 Tory Lane renewed her relationship with LA Direct models and now is listed as accepting work on their website but only softcore and still shots and she is now under contract with Sin City for her hardcore video work exclusively.
When her contract with Sin City expired she took some time off. She made a return in 2011 and by continues to make movies to this day. I’ve setup a where is she now page so keep track of when she is active and specifically what she is doing.
