Petite, raven-haired Cherokee and I first met on the video set of a 2002 production for Adam & Eve Studios (pics second row from top). She and I did a crazy 4-girl orgy with Kim Chambers and Felix Vicious. I think the scene starts as a catfight and evolves into a sexfest with very large dildos.  Well-known female director Toni English filmed the footage at actress/producer Skye Blue’s now defunct Canoga Park, California studio. On that day Cherokee seemed very enthused about her new porn career and also gushed about her boyfriend back home, possibly in Tennessee or Kentucky. She radiated happiness and exuberant energy. In the coming years Cherokee and I shot together often, frequently for large XXX production companies. As time passed she grew quieter and more withdrawn. Even though she smiled with warmth and always had a great attitude I could sense some type of sadness beneath the surface.

Cherokee established an official website which I used to glance at from time to time. On one occasion she described her frustration with a rental car clerk who tried to make arrangements for paid sex when she was picking up a vehicle. I could relate to her anger. Fans posted supportive comments in response to her words. Eventually Cherokee’s website vanished and, shortly afterward, she disappeared too. Long ago I devoted a blog to her and you can see in the comment fields where fans express puzzlement and sadness at her abrupt, unexplained departure.

On FreeOnes.com someone describes Cherokee as “underrated”. I agree with that. Throughout her prolific career she always remained beautiful, physically fit, intensely sexual, and very sweet – qualities which put her head and shoulders above most of the talent in the industry. Not sure why she failed (through no fault of her own) to garner quite as much recognition as she deserved. Even her Star Page at HotMovies.com seems oddly flat, kind of like someone wrote it at 4:58pm with the intention of leaving the office by 5pm.

I saw Cherokee for the last time during the 2005 shooting of Lesbian Milfs. In keeping with our shared history we had a wild catfight which lead into a passionate sexcapade. On that date I had filmed three different scenes. Cherokee came for the final one. The producer and I watched her drive away in a new SUV after we finished the video. “That car is the first thing that she ever bought for herself.” I remember him commenting. The resignation in his voice conveyed the sense that she deserved better circumstances than life had dealt her. That moment in the moonlight made a distinct impression on me. It seems very vivid even now.

This may sound silly but Cherokee lingers in my mind as sort of a female warrior figure. Even through difficulties she always retained her beauty, her kindness, and a positive outlook. The adult industry breaks a lot of women – they grow bitter, disillusioned, and angry – but Cherokee had some type of profound inner strength which enabled her to keep her dignity and self-respect. I hope that she is well.

Earlier this morning I added Deep Inside Cherokee (bottom pic) to TanyaTV.com.  Infamous custom video pioneer Mike Raffone shot this exclusive footage in July 2004. Longtime custom video fans will recognize his signature teal green couch in the background 😉

Veronica Ricci




Lovely Veronica Ricci entered the adult industry around 2008 when I met her. I believe that she has now retired so I feel lucky that we had a chance to shoot a few videos together. Like most stunning beauties she had a very sweet, classy personality. In my experience the absolute 10s usually do. I have added Springtime Sexfest starring Veronica, Goldie Blair, and me to my Diamond Club Members’s Area. This week I will also be adding the 2-part Sexy Sisters series featuring Veronica.

Brittaney Starr




Do you remember Brittaney Starr? She did not stay in the industry for long. On the day we met Brittaney announced that she did not like fake boobs. I was sitting in a makeup chair getting ready for our upcoming lesbian scene. Her words kind of deflated me but I guess I was a much more tolerant person back then. I would like to reclaim some of that poise. She and I chatted for a while. Brittaney came from Las Vegas where she was dating an owner of a local strip club. Seem to recall that her sister was a pornstar. . maybe by the name of Judy Star? I may have remembered that detail incorrectly. Anyways, Brittaney and I did end up having fun shooting our roles as figure model and sculptress in Girl World 2. I never did see her again. Click here for one of Brittaney’s very few boy-girl scenes.

Zora Banx




Good afternoon,

Mingori’s comment on my last post (inquiring if I had any favorite actresses from Central Europe) immediately made me think of one of my all-time favorite people: Zora Banx

Zora hails from Hungary, She and I did a lot of videos together shortly after 2000. I think we originally met on the set of Stocking Strippers Spanked directed by Skye Blue. Initially Zora had become a little upset by the spanking during her first solo scene, said it reminded her of some incidents in her childhood. She did seem fine during her second scene with me in the movie. After our first encounter we began referring each other for jobs and did numerous shoots for Sin City, Private Video, Metro (see above pics), Bizarre Video, SuperheroineCentral.com, a now-defunct company called IBN, and also a lot of wrestling matches. Alas, she eventually returned to her homeland.

As of a few years ago I heard she was directing XXX productions in Europe but have not gotten any news since. I miss Zora – would love to reconnect with her!

XOXO Tanya

P.S. No, Mingori, I never did get a chance to shoot with the fabled Veronika Zemanova.

Mike Raffone and the Porno Angels 2



Evidently all I have to do is invoke the name of Mike Raffone and the porno angels will come assist me. In my last post I mentioned my intention of writing more about Mackenzie Mack. She appeared in a lot of videos, produced by a large number of different companies, during the years which she remained active. The very first one I find features footage shot by none other than Mike Raffone himself. You can spot his omnipresent teal couch in the background even though he tried to spruce it up with some type of blanket.

More on Mackenzie to come..
