Last year, we took some time, and did a bunch of research, to uncover the Top 5 Porn Stars from the great state of Louisiana. Then just a couple weeks ago, we updated that list of porn stars.

Once we posted the Louisiana list last year, we had a lot of people mention that a Texas list should follow. So we went ahead and put that together for everyone. 

But when we did the lists last year, they had very little evidence behind them. We basically looked at how many movies each star had on their resume, how many awards they won, and any kind of impact they had on the industry. But we wanted to step our game up this time.

Using the rankings from our friends at Pornhub, we were able to plot out the Top 18 based on actual rankings. We utilized Pornhub's World Rankings to list the following stars.

So here we go, the Top 18 Porn Stars From Texas:

18. Britt Morgan - Tyler, TX - World Rank 4,280

How about Tyler, Texas to kick off the list? Bet you didn't see that one coming, but Britt has over 200 movies to her credit, and even after she's been retired for years, she still appears on the world rankings.

17. Julie Meadows - Texarkana, TX - World Rank 3,586

Keeping it in the Ark-La-Tex for our second entry, we head to Texarkana for #17 on the list, Julie Meadows. She has over 250 films to her credit, and even owns an AVN Award. But maybe most impressively, she has her own action figure:

16. Tawny Roberts - Dallas, TX - World Rank  2,047

Get used to seeing the city of Dallas listed, because there's going to be a whole bunch to follow. Tawny has over 100 movies to her credit, which is actually an interesting number since it's half of the first two on the list, but yet she ranks higher worldwide. Tawny was nominated for 4 AVN Awards in her career, but didn't ever win one.

15. Katie Gold - Dallas, TX - World Rank 1,870

A second entry from Dallas, Katie Gold owns two AVN Awards from the late 90s, and has nearly 400 films to her credit. She originally had only spent 3 years in the industry between 1997 and 1999, but returned to the industry in 2003.

14. Jana Jordan - San Antonio, TX - World Rank 1,272

Jana has stared in over 200 films in her career, along with an AVN Award nomination, and being named to "Top 20" lists. Recently she's found a new audience as fans realized she has a resemblance to singer Taylor Swift.

13. Evan Stone - Dallas, TX - World Rank 1,029

What's this? A GUY!?!?!

Yup. Evan Stone is one of the highest rated adult stars from Texas in the world rankings. For good reason too...he has nearly 2,000 scenes to his credit, and 10 AVN Awards. Oh, and he's an AVN Hall of Fame member too.

12. Taylor Vixen - Dallas, TX - World Rank 601

Not only does Taylor Vixen have almost 200 adult films on her resume, she's also the 2010 Penthouse Pet of the Year.

11. Teagan Presley - The Woodlands, TX - World Rank 599

A 2016 inductee into the AVN Hall of Fame, Teagan Presley has appeared in almost 200 films in her career, and has won 3 AVN Awards. She is also one of the few on our list who has been a featured dancer in Shreveport.

10. Kleio Valentien - Austin, TX - World Rank 348

Kleio Valentien has struck gold recently in the adult industry. Earlier this year she won her first AVN Award for her role as Harley Quinn in Batman v Superman XXX. Making her the premiere Harley Quinn in the adult industry.

In addition to that, Kleio over 110 other roles, and 9 other AVN Award nominations.

9. Nina Mercedez - Corpus Christi, TX - World Rank 326

Nina Mercedez may end up with the fewest number of films of anyone on the list, and she's inside the Top 10. Mercedez has less than 100 films on her resume, but she's made an incredible impact in the industry.

The magazine Complex has put Mercedez on a few of their most impressive lists, including their "50 Prettiest Porn Stars of All Time""The 25 Hottest Texan Women", and in 2011 she landed on their "The Top 100 Hottest Porn Stars (Right Now)" list.

8. Megan Salinas - McAllen, TX - World Rank 249

She's only 22-years-old, and has only been in the adult industry a few years, but she's already ranked as one of the Top 250 adult stars in the world, and one of the Top 10 stars from Texas.

Salinas has less than 50 scenes to her credit, but with the rankings she's already achieved, she's probably not going anywhere anytime soon.

7. Rachel Roxxx - San Antonio - World Rank 185

She's got almost 350 films on her resume, and has worked her way into the Top 200 adult stars in the world. She's been nominated for 2 AVN Awards, but hasn't won any yet. At her current pace though, she'll probably get one soon.

6. Veronica Avluv - Rowlett, TX - World Rank 142

Avluv has over 350 films on her resume, and had been nominated for almost 10 AVN Awards before winning her first (and only) in 2015.

In addition to her adult work, Avluv appeared on multiple episodes of Showtime's "Girls of Sunset Strip"

5. Jesse Jane - Fort Worth, TX - World Rank 135

We've made it to the Top 5 on our list, and we're cracking the Top 5 with the only entry on the list that I've had a chance to interview.

Jesse Jane is an AVN Hall of Fame member, who has been nominated for 83 awards in her career, winning 23 of them. She's also experienced a metric ton of "mainstream" success, appearing in shows like Entourage and The Bad Girls Club, as well as movies like Starsky and Hutch. She was also named as one of "The Dirty Dozen: Porn's Most Popular Stars" by CNBC.

4. Bree Olson - Houston, TX - World Rank 104

She's got hundreds of films to her credit, 4 AVN Awards, and a huge online following...but what most people will remember about Bree Olson is her relationship with Charlie Sheen.

Bree and Sheen had a very public, and insane, relationship as Sheen was doing his "Tiger Blood" thing. After that, Bree left the adult industry to pursue "mainstream" roles.

In her "mainstream" work, she's appeared with Funny or Die, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and even had a role in the popular Power/Rangers online fan film.

3. Kagney Linn Karter - Harris County, TX - World Rank 76

We start our Top 3 with one of the Top 100 stars in the world. Karter has 37 industry award nominations and 6 wins in her career. A career that has spanned over 400 films. Multiple sites have listed her as a "most searched" star, often generating hundreds of thousands of searches in a single month.

2. Rachel Starr - Burleson, TX - World Rank 21

She's one of the Top 25 stars in the world, and #2 on the list from Texas. Starr has over 400 films to her credit, and 4 AVN Award nominations, but no wins. Yet she still tops the worldwide ranks over Hall of Fame members and household names.

1. Jessica Drake - San Antonio, TX - World Rank 17

Sure, Jessica Drake is an AVN Hall of Fame member, and has over 350 movies to her credit...but is she really #1?

Well according to the worldwide rankings, she's #17 in the world, which makes her #1 in Texas. BUT...Pornhub's worldwide ranks are based on searches, and there was a little news story recently that would probably influence that metric...

So, is Jessica Drake REALLY #1 in Texas? For right now, with these metrics...yes. But this gives us an excuse to reexamine these ranks in a few weeks.

Honorable Mentions:

Alexis Texas - From Panama, raised in Texas - World Rank 9

These types of lists have to have rules, and one of our rules is how to establish who's FROM TEXAS. There are a lot of adult stars who GREW UP in Texas, but weren't born there. Some on our list were BORN in Texas, but were raised somewhere else. Based on the way we do things, Alexis Texas doesn't count, because she was born in Panama.

If she was eligible for the rankings, of course she'd be high on the list, so we feel like we NEED to put her here as an honorable mention.

Mia Khalifa - Beirut, Lebanon - UTEP Graduate - World Rank 2

Here's another that COULD make a Texas list, depending on your rules. Khalifa wasn't even born in the United State, but she's an alumni from UTEP (University of Texas - El Paso) so you could find a way to tie her into the state, but just like Alexis Texas, we need to stick to our rules.
