Growing up, Kayden Kross described herself as a book nerd in high school. “My prize possession is a bookshelf that spans the full height and length of one wall of my loft. Books are stored according to how hard they were to put down, with a special section for the signed ones.”
Kayden got into stripping in order to earn extra money to buy a pony that was going to be slaughtered. “I made $850 the first shift I worked...and the next day bought him.” She segued into adult modeling after an agent contacted her.
In 2006, when Kayden was a senior at California State University – Sacramento as a psychology major she signed with the porn company Vivid Video and began her adult career. “The job market for graduating four year psych students didn’t look promising, or interesting for that matter. Neither did anything else. Then someone offered to pay me a lot of money to play dress-up and un-dress-up all day. That was interesting.”

As to performing, Kayden Kross said, “It’s not a matter of the equipment under the hood for me…if the sex is real I can’t get enough. If it’s staged every minute seems to drag on without end. This is my porn theory of relativity.”
In 2008, Kayden Kross became a Penthouse Pet of the Month for September. In that same year, however, she was charged with grand theft involving white-collar crime, allegedly conning a disabled veteran and his family. The charge was later dismissed and her real-estate fraud was reduced to a dismeanor. She said her mortgage broker scammed her.
Aside from her adult work, she’s appeared on G4 Television as a host, reality TV guest star and on “Attack of the Show.” In 2011, CNBC named her one of the 12 most popular stars in porn.
Kayden said if she wasn’t a porn star, “I’d probably be applying to some PhD program as a last ditch effort to remain swaddled in the safety of school and out of the clutches of the real world. Luckily porn has provided me that.”
Her favorite dirty words are “f*ck. It can be used so many ways. I also love the word whore. They just feel like words you can wrap your tongue around when you’re getting reamed.” She added in a reddit AMA, “I prefer swallowing, but facials are fun. I hate the shots on the belly. They feel wasted. Maybe the catholic church is onto something.”
