Nina Hartley, Porn Star & Sex Educator

Nina Hartley is an American porn actress, porn film director, sex educator, sex-positive feminist, and author. She was born Marie Louise Hartman on March 11, 1959.

After graduating from Berkeley High School in 1977, Nina attended San Francisco State University’s undergraduate school of nursing and graduated in 1985. Her career in the adult-entertainment industry began while she was in her sophomore year of nursing school, when she started work as a stripper at the Mitchell Brothers O’Farrell Theater in San Francisco.

Nina’s adult-film debut came in “Educating Nina” (1984), which was produced and directed by veteran porn star Juliet Anderson, better known as “Aunt Peg.” She had a role in the 1997 film “Boogie Nights,” playing William H. Macy’s serially unfaithful wife, and she appeared in the 1996 Canadian film “Bubbles Galore.” Nina also appeared in late rapper Tupac Shakur’s music video for his 1996 single, “How Do U Want It.”

A living legend in the adult film industry with a career spanning over three decades, Nina was entered into the Hall of Fame of Legends of Erotica in 1994 and won the Fanny Lifetime Achievement Award in 2014. While still active in the adult film industry, she predominantly plays roles in films in the mature niche. Nina has written several books, most recently, “Nina Hartley’s Guide To Total Sex.”
