Die-Screaming ranks the ten greatest TS pornstars of 2018…
10. Shiri Allwood
After putting together the best year of her career, Shiri Allwood certainly earned her spot on Die-Screaming’s Top 10 Best TS Pornstar rankings. Her performances in Housewives (Trans Angels) and Angels Gone Bad (Trans Angels) were awesome and the stuff she’s doing online is some of the best hardcore action that I’ve seen all year. Her hard work certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed, as Shiri picked up a Transsexual Performer of the Year nomination from AVN along with three TEA nods.
9. Khloe Kay
I’m not sure any new starlet — of any genre — had as much of an immediate impact as Khloe Kay did in 2018. Her scenes are straight fire, as evidenced by movies such as TS Love Stories Vol. 4 (TransSensual) and Sean Michaels: Trans Slayer (Gender X). AVN, XBIZ, and TEA have all showered her with award nominations and all of them are very well deserved. If you haven’t already been keeping a close eye on Khloe Kay and her work, you need to start right goddamn now.
8. Janelle Fennec
2018 was Janelle Fennec’s first full year in porn and she certainly made the most of it. Some of her best work of the year was in Trans-Visions 12 (Evil Angel), Transsexual Girlfriend Experience 6 (Devil’s Film), and Radius Dark’s TS Starlets Vol. 5 (Grooby). Janelle also just scored a whopping five TEA nominations, including three Best Boy/Girl Scene awards. That’s more than I’ve ever accomplished in my entire life.
7. Korra Del Rio
Korra Del Rio has been an elite level XXX performer for the past few years, but 2018 might have been her best yet. Her webcam game is as strong as anyone in the industry and she was featured in some of the year’s hottest selling TS movies, including TS Nurses Vol. 2 (TransSensual), TS Love Stories Vol. 3 (TransSensual), and Transsexual Addiction 2 (Evil Angel). As if that wasn’t enough, Korra also just scored her first Transsexual Performer of the Year nomination from AVN.
6. Domino Presley
For the third year in a row, Domino Presley has earned a spot on Die-Screaming’s Top 10 Best TS Pornstar rankings. Without question one of the industry’s biggest and brightest stars, Domino delivered a stellar 2018. That included killer performances in such hits as Domino Presley’s House of Whores (Grooby) and Domino: Angel Unveiled (Trans Angels), Transsexual Performer of the Year nominations from AVN and XBIZ, and being announced as the host of the 2019 TEA awards ceremony.
5. Aubrey Kate
It seems every year, Aubrey Kate just continues to step her hardcore game up. In 2018, she was the centerpiece of one of the best TS films of the year, Aubrey Kate Plus 8 (Evil Angel), and served up strong performances in such films as TS Taboo 2: My Boss’ Wife (TransSensual) and Trans-Visions 14 (Evil Angel). Critics were certainly impressed, as Aubrey received award nominations from AVN, XBIZ, NightMoves, XCritic, Pornhub and TEA, making her one of the most acclaimed performers of the year.
4. Lena Kelly
In 2018, Lena Kelly left no doubt that she is one of the baddest TS performers in all of smut. Her performances in Transsexual Addiction 2 (Evil Angel) and TS Gangbangs (Evil Angel) were some of the brightest spots of the year and her online videos, many of which she directs, are equally fantastic. She was just nominated for Transsexual Performer of the Year by both AVN and XBIZ and it wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest to see her walk away with at least one of those trophies.
3. Casey Kisses
There are very few people currently working in porn who are as talented as Casey Kisses and she has a pile of major industry award nominations to prove it. In addition to being one of the most entertaining hardcore cam models of the year, Casey also was featured in some of 2018’s best TS releases. Those would include movies such as Aubrey Kate Plus 8 (Evil Angel), TSPC Transsexual Porn Channel (Devil’s Film), and Transsexual Mashup 2 (Gender X).
2. Chanel Santini
Oh my damn did Chanel Santini rock the fuck out of 2018. If you question why I say that, then clearly you haven’t seen her in Trans School Girls (Gender X), Hot For Transsexuals 5 (Evil Angel), or I Am Angela (Evil Angel). Those performances, combined with everything else she accomplished in 2018, has led to pretty much every organization that gives out porn industry awards to shower her with nominations.
1. Natalie Mars
Natalie Mars is Die-Screaming’s pick for the best transsexual pornstar of 2018. While she certainly had a whole lot of very strong competition for the title, the year that she put together was absolutely fantastic and set her apart. She delivered stand-up-and-applaud performances in movies such as TS Gangbangs (Evil Angel), Transsexual Addiction 2 (Evil Angel), and Domino Pressley’s House of Whores (Grooby). Between her incredible eight TEA nominations and all the love she received from AVN, XBIZ, XCritic, and Pornhub, I hope she has a really big trophy case.
About this year’s Top 10 Best Transsexual Pornstar rankings…
This is the fifth year that I’ve put these rankings together for Die-Screaming. In order to get the list you see above, thirty-one TS pornstars were scored across eleven categories. The ten performers with the highest scores are the ones you see here. I’m terrible at math so doing all of this shit took forever and I’m gonna have a headache for a month.
You may be curious as to what my exact scoring system looks like. I’m not gonna share it because I’m a drunken asshole. However, to help give a bit of context to this year’s rankings, here are some mathematical factoids…
- A total of 10.7 points separated positions one thru ten
- Only 2 points stood between positions one thru three
- Three performers were each a point or less away from making the Top 10
- 50% of the performers on this year’s Top 10 were also on last year’s list
What do you think?
I get it. Top 10 lists are impossible to get right. I’ll be the first to admit that there were a whole lot more than ten TS performers who deserved to have a spot in this Top 10 list. But because of math, no everyone fits and that sucks. However, I think the list that you see here is solid and I’m willing to stand by it.
That being said, I’m sure a whole bunch of you probably vehemently disagree with everything. And that’s fine. Just leave your own Top Ten in the comments section below.
