Life before porn
Gina Lynn is a retired adult movies performer and director. She was born in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico, on February the 15th, 1074, as Tanya Mercado. She is of Puerto Rican, Italian and Spanish ancestry. When she was 7 years old (5 according to some sources), her family decided to move to Jackson Township, New Jersey, USA. While she was growing up she was a quiet person and she was pretty shy. She went to Catholic school all her life. When she was a senior in high school she started stripping at a place that was about 20 minutes away from her school. That’s how she was told she should become a model. She has implants in her boobs and in her ass, and her measurements are 34D-24-34.
At first Gina started modeling for magazines (solo and G/G shoots). In 1999 she got married to a fellow adult model, Travis Knight. They are still married today, but apparently they are currently separated (we hope they’ll work it out). However, that’s a very long marriage by the standards of the adult industry. While she was on a photo shoot with her new husband, they got an offer to shoot a porn video, and they accepted it. It was a Mad Jack’s movie titled “18 in Vegas” (produced by Midnight Video). Gina was naturally a brown-eyed brunette, but at the beginning of her porn career she decided to become a blue-eyed blonde (which she was throughout her entire career, and still is). So, this Latina doesn’t look like a Latina, and she admitted that her makeover was a smart choice career-wise because, after she changed her appearance, she instantly started getting more offers, and started getting paid more than she used to be.
At the beginning of her career most of her movies were produced by Pleasure Productions. After that, she started working for companies like Brazzers, Naughty America, Digital Playground, Vivid, Penthouse, BangBros, Elegant Angel, Zero Tolerance, Hustler Video, Private, etc. In 2009 she started her own production company – Gina Lynn Productions. Her work can also be seen on her own website – Gina Lynn. Porn movies are always a bit kinky, but in Gina’s opinion the craziest movie she’s ever performed in is Gina Lynn’s Dark Side. In 2004 she started directing porn movies. When it comes to taste in men, she declared she doesn’t care much for pretty guys – what’s much more important is chemistry. Other than her husband, she likes working with Lex Steele, Mr. Pete and Michael Stefano. When it comes to girls, it’s definitely Belladonna because she’s so genuinely intense. Gina retired in 2015, but she is still webcamming.
This MILF was a Penthouse Pet of the Month (April 2012), and she was inducted in AVN Hall of Fame and in Nightmoves Hall of Fame. The AVN named her one of the top 40 most influential people in the adult industry. Also, a sex products company, Cal Exotics, honored her by making a Gina Lynn doll. This hottie has appeared in “Analyze That” (a Hollywood blockbuster with Robert De Niro and Billy Crystal). After seeing her in that movie, Eminem tracked her down and hired her to perform in a music video for his song Superman. Also, Gina had cameos in 2 episodes of “Sopranos”.
