Vanessa Del Rio

Pornstar Profile, Date added: 03 Jul 1995

Vanessa Del Rio is a pornstar who was born in the New York, New York area of Harlem under the zodiac sign of Aries. She is of mixed Puerto Rican, Cuban and American descent and has black hair and brown eyes. She stands 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs about 121 pounds. Her body measurements are 42DD-31-42 and she is all natural having never had any augmentations to her body. She has no tattoos on her body and also no body piercings. She performed under many alias names which include Diane Reynolds, Cynthia Vee, Carol Lee Nance, Jan Pearce, Vanessda Delrio, Vanesa Del Rio, Vanessa Del Rio, Vannessa Del Rio, Violet Reason, Ursula Pasarell, Ursula Passarell, Vanessa delRio and Venessa del Rio.

She started working in porn movies when she was in her early twenties in the year 1975. Prior to that she had worked as a computer programmer and then as a waitress, barmaid and go-go dancer. She has said that the reason she got into working in porn movies was because they were paying $150 per day which was half of her rent where she was living. At the time this was quite a bit of money and working for two days to cover her entire monthly rent was just too good to pass up. According to her, the very first film she performed in was "China Doll" which was produced by Video Home Library and directed by Warren Evans. She appears in two scenes and the first is a threesome with Ashley Moore and John Bush. The final scene in the movie is a group sex affair with three other girls and five guys. What's remarkable about her performance is that she gets double penetrated which is rare to do in your very first hardcore scene ever.

Vanessa refers to herself as a nice girl from Harlem who was born with a rebellious and free spirit who was just bound to exceed expectations. She attended Catholic school and grew up as an only child of Cuban and Puerto Rican parents. Frequently she would not be allowed to even go out and play because her parents thought that the streets were far too dangerous. According to her, this lead to her developing a very active imagination which would include sexual fantasies as she got older. Being raised in such a strict manner is what lead her to want to experience everything she had been imagining once she left home. She actually left home at an early age due to her pent up desire to live without restrictions and she experienced a little bit of everything before landing a job as a keypunch operator. This lead to her computer programming job and eventual entrance into the adult film industry.

She gained an early reputation for being a very real performer, that is to say that she was clearly not acting but enjoying the sex she was having while being filmed. Physically she was a stunning girl too with her huge tits and very prominent clitoris being first on peoples minds. Miss Del Rio was also arguably the very first female porn performer to be labeled as Latina. According to an interview question on the subject, she thinks that it is a fair assessment because at the time, pornstars were all just pornstars. In more recent years there are a lot of different niche categories that pornstars can fit into or not. She comments incidentally that some of the Latina girls of today are completely gorgeous and would have been huge stars in her day.

She did several more hardcore scenes in her first couple of years in the business including a lot of anal and a few double penetration scenes. In 1980 she performed in the film called "Dracula Exotica" from VCA pictures which was directed by Warren Evans. She has a total of three scenes in this feature movie and plays the part of a drug smuggler turned secretary. It's a noteworthy performance from her because not only does it increase the hardcore factor of the movie, she also won a Critics Adult Film Award for Best Supporting Actress. Her next industry awards would come in 1985 for her performances in "Viva Vanessa" which was also produced by VCA pictures and directed by Henri Pachard. XRCO nominated her for awards in it's Best Kinky Scene, Orgasmic Oral Scene and Best Single Female Performance of the Year categories. Two years later she would win a CAFA award for her work in "The Devil in Miss Jones 3: A New Beginning." Shortly after this she had a run in with the law and was arrested for simple drug possession. After being convicted and sentenced to some jail time, it served to help her clean up her act. She also retired for a time at this point in her career due to an AIDS outbreak within the adult industry.

Miss Del Rio worked in quite a few mainstream television and movie projects later in her career. She appeared in an episode of the television series "NYPD Blue" that dealt with an obsessed fan of a pornstar played by herself. Samuel L. Jackson was reportedly thrilled that Vanessa was appearing in the film "Soul Men" along with him in 2008. He was quoted in an article as saying in part, "I was excited about her because she was the first porn star who really enjoyed sex." It is also mentioned in the article that she was always his favorite porn icon. In 2010 a book was produced called "Vanessa del Rio: Fifty Years of Slightly Slutty Behavior" which details different aspects of her life in and out of the porn business. Produced by TASCHEN, it is 400 pages and filled with lots of explicit images as well.

Vanessa Del Rio appeared in about 203 movies until her retirement in 1999. As a porn icon she has become quite well accepted in mainstream entertainment in more recent times. She was listed at number eight on The 50 Top Porn Stars of All Time list produced by AVN.
