Die-Screaming ranks the ten greatest female pornstars of the year…
10. Joanna Angel
Not only did Joanna Angel rank as the number one MILF Pornstar of 2018, but she also earned a Top 10 spot on the Best Female Pornstars list. That’s really not all that surprising when you consider the type of year that Joanna put together. Her performances in Dirty Grandpa (BurningAngel Entertainment), A Trailer Park Taboo (Pure Taboo), and I Am Angela (Evil Angel) were top-notch and she left no doubt that she remains one of the most important talents currently working in smut.
9. Romi Rain
If you wanted to say that 2018 has been the best year of Romi Rain’s already impressive career, I could probably support that. After all, she performed in some of the year’s best films, including The Seduction of Heidi (Adam & Eve), Xander’s World Tour (Brazzers), and Deadpool XXX: An Axel Braun Parody (Wicked Pictures). And she was selected to co-host the 2019 AVN Awards Show. And she was nominated for a whole bunch of AVN, XBIZ, NightMoves, Inked and Urban X awards.
8. Honey Gold
One of Die-Screaming’s Top 10 ranked new starlets of last year, Honey Gold once again gave us an incredible showing. In terms of the XXX performances she turned out, she was never better. She delivered impressive showings in films such as Camgirl (Wicked Pictures), Slut Puppies 12 (Jules Jordan Video), and Rich Fucks (Brazzers). Honey also landed highly-coveted Female Performer of the Year nods from AVN and XBIZ.
On another note, Honey Gold could use some help. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help get her some medical care and if you can donate, it would be awesome if you did.
7. Jill Kassidy
At the start of 2018, everyone was expecting Jill Kassidy to blossom into a full-blown XXX superstar. As the year comes to an end, Ms. Kassidy has left no doubt that she’s accomplished that mission. She had one of the very best showcase films of the year with Ultimate Fuck Toy: Jill Kassidy (Jules Jordan Video) and had award-worthy showings in Future Darkly Vol. 1 (Pure Taboo) and Unleashed (Adam & Eve). And just to show off, she just earned five Best Sex Scene nominations from XBIZ and eight AVN award noms, including Female Performer of the Year.
6. Katrina Jade
Katrina Jade was easily one of the most important performers of 2018. Her Evil Angel showcase movie, Katrina Jade: Addicted to Black, was an instant XXX classic. Katrina also performed in many of the year’s biggest and best releases, including Talk Derby to Me (Sweetheart Video), The Cursed XXX (Adam & Eve), and Performers of the Year 2018 (Elegant Angel). This award season, she once again had a strong showing, picking up over a dozen nominations from AVN, XBIZ, Inked, NighMoves, XCritic, and Urban X.
5. Whitney Wright
In case you weren’t paying attention, Whitney Wright just killed the shit out of 2018. Hands down one of the industry’s best and brightest new stars, Ms. Wright gave us some of the best performances of the year with her roles in such films as Cursed (Wicked Pictures), Future Darkly Vol. 1 (Pure Taboo), and The Seduction of Heidi (Adam & Eve). It’s also worth noting that between her XBIZ and AVN nominations, Whitney just picked up five Best Actress and two Female Performer of the Year nods.
4. Gina Valentina
2018 was probably the best year of Gina Valentina’s XXX career and that’s saying a lot. She just earned Female Performer of the Year nominations from AVN and XBIZ, well-deserved recognition for the string of impressive performances she served up in 2018. Some of her best work was in Xander’s World Tour (Brazzers), Massive Swallow (HardX), and Pretty Little Sluts (Jules Jordan Video). And on top of all of that, Gina was selected to be one of Greg Lansky’s Vixen Angels earlier in the year.
3. Adriana Chechik
In 2018, Adriana Chechik reminded us of why she’s probably one of the most important XXX talents of this millennium. She had stellar showings in such best-sellers as Star Wars: The Last Temptation (Digital Playground), After Dark (Vixen), and Anal Nymphos Anal Legends 2 (Jules Jordan Video). And if consistency is one of the qualities of greatness, Adriana certainly has that as she just picked up her fifth consecutive AVN and XBIZ Female Performer of the Year nominations.
2. Abella Danger
When it comes to doing hardcore porn, Abella Danger is an all-time great talent. I watched a whole lot of her scenes in 2018 and I don’t remember seeing any that were anything less than “really fucking good”. As for what was her best stuff of the year, I’d recommend checking out some of the flicks that earned her some XXX award nominations; Sun-Lit Vol. 3 (TRENCHCOATx), Pornstar Workout Vol. 3 (Elegant Angel), and Paparazzi (Sweet Sinner). Basically, Abella Danger is better at porn than you or I are at literally anything.
1. Angela White
For the second year in a row, Angela White is Die-Screaming’s pick for the number one Best Female Pornstar of the Year. Anyone who was paying even a little bit of attention to smut during 2018 knows that Ms. White was absolutely dominant and delivered some of the best and most sizzling scenes of the year, especially in The Weight of Infidelity (Pure Taboo), Angela By Darkko (Evil Angel), I Am Angela (Evil Angel), Angela Loves Anal 2 (AGW Entertainment), or pretty much anything else she appeared in.
About this year’s Top 10 Best Female Pornstar list…
2018 marks the fifth consecutive year that I’ve put these rankings together for Die-Screaming. In order to get the rankings that you see above, I had to build spreadsheets and shit and score nearly two-hundred female pornstars across eleven categories. The ten women with the highest scores are the ones presented here.
I’m not going to tell you my exact scoring model because I’m lame as hell. Seriously, if you knew me in real life, you probably wish you didn’t. Anyway, I’m not gonna give you the exact details but I will throw you some statistical tidbits to be nice and to maybe put the rankings in better context…
- There were 17.2 points between first and tenth positions, but just 1.4 points separating first and second places
- Three performers were each less than 2 points away from making the Top 10
- 60% of the women on this year’s Top 10 also earned spots on 2017’s list
What do you think?
This Top 10 list is far from perfect. No Top 10 list can be perfect. There were absolutely a whole lot more than just ten ladies who deserved to be included on this list but couldn’t because of math. And math is stupid. Actually, the whole concept of scoring human beings against one another in bullshit but it’s what I do because I gotta do something to keep the people clicking into this website. Porn bloggers got bills, too, homie.
All of that being said, though, I’m willing to stand by the rankings you see here. You can and probably should disagree with all of it. In fact, just go ahead and leave your own list of ten best female pornstars in the comments below. I won’t read it and probably no one else will, either, but you should still do it. Do it.
