Briana Banks was born in Germany to a German father and American mother, but her family moved to England when she was four, and at seven, to Simi Valley, California. She said in high school she was “mellow. I did not date. I was a prude. I did not hit puberty until I was 17. So I had a total of maybe three boyfriends…I was very shy and self conscious.” She added, “I am not the one they expected to end up in porn.”
As a teen, Briana Banks did some modeling, even appearing on the cover of “Teen” magazine. When she was 16, she moved out of her house, and at 18, Briana got custody of her younger sister. “I’ve been taking care of her since she was little. She is the total opposite of me.” She made ends meet by working in arts-and-craft store as well as secretarial work.

Briana Banks got into the skin business when she was 21 in 1999 after she responded to an ad seeking models for nude work. She got into porn because she was tired of what she was doing. “I worked all the time and had no money.” She added, “I’m still the same person I was. But I am a lot more open, a lot more fun to be around, not so uptight. And I don’t really care what other people think of me.”
She added, “I get to have sex with really hot guys and cute girls…and get paid for it. I enjoy what I do…I am glad things worked out the way they did.” Of her first time on camera, she said, “My co-star was Brandon Iron and he had the biggest penis I had ever seen. When I first saw it, I freaked out, I didn’t think I could handle it.”
