Living XXX legend Debi Diamond has truly rocked the porn arena to its roots since making her debut back in 1980. This statuesque blonde sex kitten raised the bar for all starlets that follow her path with an extreme sexual hunger and raw lust that has yet to be matched by any of those following her.
On May 1, 1962 this goddess was born in San Fernando Valley, California. Debi had an upper middle class upbringing and got a job working as a personal assistant for Robert Evans, legendary film producer, after high school. Evans introduced Debi to many big names during this time, including Helmut Newton. Debi appeared in many of Helmut’s glamour photography books from the late 70’s and early 80’s. She tried to get into the mainstream film industry in the early 80’s without much to show for it. Since many producers wanted her to sleep with them for roles, she decided she might as well get paid for having sex, so she looked into porn. Debi started her career under the name of Shelly Rey with a soft but attractive body. She quickly won over legions of fans with her sizzling hot performances. Then the sultry vixen left the business for awhile and returned in the late 80’s with a new toned body and a stronger sex drive than ever.
Debi was one of the first do-anything girls, and everyone who saw her work noticed and appreciated what she brought to the industry. Over the years, she won basically every award available to female performers including Performer of the Year and Favorite Female, and is currently in both the X-Rated Critics and AVN Hall of Fame. She branched out into other forms of self-expression during her most active years, including singing on a cover of Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit" by The Durutti Column, which appeared on the band's 1986 Factory Records EP The City Of Our Lady (Fac 184).
After a long porn career, Debi retired in the late 1990’s partially due to pressure from her family and friends. She married and had three kids, but later divorced. Debi showed up on MySpace in 2007 and seemed to be considering a comeback. In 2009, Debi returned to a hardcore porn world that welcomed her back with open arms.
