In the world outside of the porn industry, being short is often viewed as a weakness. But for adult entertainers, it can a massive strength.
Recent analytics indicate an increasing fascination with petite performers.
Whether it’s because of their youthful appearance, their ability to have sex in positions that others can’t or simply because of a fetish for petite women, porn fans love pint-sized princesses.
Here is a list of the top petite performers in porn.
Please note, this list recognizes active talent only, which explains the omission of Kenzie Reeves—one of the greatest diminutive stars of all time—and others who have either recently retired or are on a hiatus.
The 19-year-old Valencia is making AVN look good for nominating her for Best New Starlet in 2023. She’s become a favorite among directors at two of the industry’s biggest studios, Vixen and Adult Time. Valencia’s 2022 scene for Slayed with contract girl Vanna Bardot was absolute fire, and it set the stage for bigger things to come. Unlike many teens in porn, Valencia is low-drama. She shows up on time, doesn’t cancel shoots, maintains a friendly, upbeat persona and connects with almost every scene partner. She’s a refreshing, textbook example of doing things the right way.
Just two years into her career, Lovelock is blossoming into one of the top performers in the entire adult industry. Simply put, she was made for porn and would probably do it for free. Lovelock’s passion for sex comes through in her scenes, which seem real and genuine. She squirts, she sweats, she moans and gets completely lost in the moment. Viewers aren’t just aroused, they’re impressed. Born and raised in Las Vegas, the 4-foot-10, 90-pound spinner flourishes in almost every genre of porn. She’s a master oralist who doesn’t back down from a massive dick. Her romp with Isaiah Maxwell for Blacked garnered an AVN nomination for Best Boy-Girl scene in 2022, when she also scored a nomination for best BGG for “Fuckhole,” a sizzling vignette for Deeper. Lovelock recently shot her first anal scene and is beginning to dabble in script writing. Expect Lovelock to be around for a long time. She checks all of the boxes.
The former stripper from New Orleans has been quick to make a name for herself since debuting two years ago. Standing just 4-foot-8, Spades is believed to be the shortest performer in the industry. Her lack of size as hardly been a hindrance, as Spades has already worked for nearly A-list studio in the business. The highlight of her career to date came earlier this year, when BANG! decided to feature her in a soon-to-be-released showcase.
No one on this list is as accomplished as Wilde. There’s hardly anything the three-time AVN Performer of the Year nominee can’t—or won’t—do. Wilde won an AVN award for Best Anal scene in 2021 with Rocco Siffredi. The encounter was so intense that Wilde actually teared as she wrapped her arms around Siffredi moments after it was over. The scene helped Jane gain a reputation as one of the top anal performers in the business. She’s also produced some memorable content with trans performers such as Aubrey Kate and Khloe Kay. And she showed her acting chops in “Stars,” an Adult Time feature based on her life that she co-directed along with Bree Mills. The 5-foot-0, 100-pound Wilde, who debuted in 2017, has nearly 700 scene credits under her belt and there’s no indication she’ll slow down anytime soon.
Widely-respected for her professionalism and work ethic, Kimm is surging in a big way. The 4-foot-9, 95-pounder turned heads with her AVN-nominated scene “Lady Boss,” in which she starred alongside April Olsen, Vicki Chase and Lilly Bell. It was easily one of the top all-girl group scenes of 2022. In 2023 she’s already worked for Nubiles, Deeper, Team Skeet and a host of other top studios. Keep and eye on Kimm as she continues what’s shaping to be a breakthrough year.
The 4-foot-9, 90-pound Chu garnered an AVN Female Performer of the Year nomination in 2022—and rightfully so. She won a trophy for Best Foursome/Orgy Sex Scene in 2022 and has shot more than 300 scenes in her career. Chu’s throwdown with Gianna Dior and Manuel Ferrara was one of the best BGG scenes of the past year. Chu has already shot more than 30 scenes in 2023 for A-list studios such as Brazzers, Deeper, Team Skeet and Missa X. She’s on a roll and has no plans to stop anytime soon.
With gorgeous red hair and a spunky personality, Collins brings good vibes to every set. She earns constant praise for her acting ability—check her out in Missa Xmas. Collins is versatile as a performer and has recently started doing anal. Collins earned a 2022 AVN Awards nomination for Team Skeet’s “Two Gingers and a Nerd,” a hilarious BGG scene with Hannah Grace and Robby Echo. The 4-foot-10, 95-pound Collins is extremely hard-working and dedicated to her craft.
A close friend and protege of Kenna James, Kazi is one of the industry’s top up-and-comers. One of her very first scenes was an anal encounter for Back Room Casting Couch and her career has been on an ascension ever since. She’s worked extensively for Nubiles, Team Skeet and New Sensations, and her profile will enhance even more as she gets booked by bigger studios, which is sure to happen soon.
A Nubiles contract girl, Little is one of the best-kept secrets in porn. Just one year into her career, the 90-pound Little became a Nubiles contract girl. Her popularity will soar as soon as she begins shooting regularly for other studios, Little turned 20 in February. She’s a sensual performer with beautiful skin, a youthful appearance and a picturesque posterior. She’s also an extremely dedicated worker, having performed for months in 2022 despite almost disfiguring her hand in a kitchen incident. Expect Little to be considered strongly for a Best New Starlet nomination in the next round of the awards circuit.
She may be quiet and unassuming off set, but once the cameras start rolling, Jordan turns into a sexual goddess. Whether it’s in a girl-girl scene with Gianna Dior for Slayed, an DP with Mick Blue and Ramon Nomar for Mile High or a squirting scene with Zac Wild for Evil Angel, Jordan always brings her A-game. The Spiegler girl recently returned from Europe, where she shot with Lilly Bell for Dorcel. Simply put, you won’t find anyone in the industry with a bad thing to say about Liz Jordan, who could be in the mix for a Female Performer of the Year nomination sooner rather than later.
One of the most-underrated performers in the industry, Ryder has shot more than 200 scenes and garnered six AVN nominations—including one for Best New Starlet—since her debut two years ago. Ryder is known for her sloppy blowjobs and has produced some of her best content with Mike Adriano, with whom she’s worked 13 times. She also starred alongside close friend Kylie Rocket in the highly-praised Deeper series “Goddess and the Seed.” The 5-foot-1, 95-pound Ryder should be near the top of any wish-list for directors seeking petite performers.
A 2023 AVN Trophy Girl and Best New Starlet nominee, Marie is currently one of the most in-demand performers in porn. Standing 5-foot-3 and weighing only 100 pounds, Marie’s body is all-natural and flawless. She’s worked for everyone from Vixen to Jules Jordan to Evil Angel. In her very first year she was nominated in three of the biggest AVN categories: Best Boy-Girl Sex Scene, Best Oral Sex Scene and best BGG sex scene. That’s almost unheard of for a newcomer. Look for even bigger things from Marie in the coming months and years.
