Lisa Ann Corpora was born May 9, 1972, in Easton, Pennsylvania, USA. Her grandmother has French-Canadian roots and the rest of her family is Italian. Lisa graduated from medical school with a degree in dentistry. From the age of 16, she began stripping using fake IDs and then continued dancing in order to be able to pay her tuition.
After her studies, Lisa moved to California, deciding that it was easier and more interesting to make money with her sexy body than working as a dentist. Although, most likely, such a sexy doctor would have no shortage of clients. She was introduced to the world of adult industry through one of the actresses she met performing at Al’s Diamond Cabaret in Reading, Pennsylvania.
After the move, Lisa initially starred in erotic videos, not porn. According to Lisa, she lost her virginity at age 13, and ever since she became a teenager, sex has been central to her life. So such a passionate girl could not stay on the level of erotic actress for long and in July 1994 she starred in her first porn movie. It was Cinesex 2. After signing a contract with Metro/Cal Vista, the newly minted porn actress starts filming in the genres of fetish and masturbation. For the first two years, she only filmed once a month. Her most notable films at that time were Flesh For Fantasy and Sin Asylum. After Metro, Lisa starred in films for Sin City, Adam and Eve and Wicked Pictures. Between 1993 and 1997 Lisa Ann starred in about 40 films.
In 1997 Lisa left the porn industry for fear of contracting AIDS. After leaving porn, she starts stripping again and opens her own spa. Lisa travels around the country showing off her gorgeous body at various strip clubs.
From September 2005 to February 2006, she worked as an agent for LA Direct Models. According to Lisa, women whose age was over 30 were rejected by all agents and so she dealt with them. It was this attitude toward actresses over 30 that motivated her to start her own modeling agency. In November 2006, Lisa launched Clear Talent Management, which was later renamed Lisa Ann’s Talent Management, and later merged with Adam Glasser’s Lighthouse in 2007.
In February 2006, Lisa Ann returned to the porn industry when she was asked to do a photo set with a man for Suze Randall. Her first scene after returning to the industry was with actor Christian in Braustin’ and Deep Thrustin. She set up her own agency Clear Talent Management in November 2006 which was later renamed Lisa Ann’s Talent Management, then in 2007 she merged with Adam Glasser’s Lighthouse Agency and helped young girls starting their porn careers to get better deals for themselves.
As a porn actress, she began filming in the MILF genre. As she got older, she only got sexier. She is known in the industry for her careful choice of partners. This busty Italian beauty, with perfect smooth skin, silky brown hair, a shy smile and seductive charm, has won the hearts of many fans.
On October 2, 2008, Hustler, owned by Larry Flynt, a porn mogul with a penchant for flamboyance, released the porn film “Who’s Nailin’ Paylin? The film, which, incidentally, has an unambiguous play on words in its title, was unexpectedly widely discussed in the media. According to a number of Western journalists and political analysts, the scandalous film was not just another commonplace porno film, but also served as a demonstration of a kind of satire, an attempt to smear Vice Presidential candidate in the 2008 election, Sarah Palin. The Guardian described the film as a “political porn satire.” Lisa Ann played the lead role of Serra Paylin in the film. With Lisa, the film starred Nina Hartley and Jada Fire, who parodied political figures such as Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice, respectively.
On October 31, 2008, Hustler announced that Lisa Ann was going to star in “Obama is Nailin’ Paylin,” which would continue Lisa’s adventures as Serra Palin, but this time would also make fun of Barack Obama. The film appeared on November 3, 2008 and was only distributed through the Hustler website and on Blu-ray. It is not available on DVD.
In March 2009, Hustler announced that they planned to release a sequel to “Who’s Nailin’ Paylin?” with Lisa Ann as “Serra Paylin.” The film was released on August 26, 2009 as Letterman is Nailin Palin. In 2009, Lisa Ann starred in popular singer Eminem’s “We Made You” music video as her famous “swagger governor.” With the help of her friend, black porn actor C. J. Wright, Lisa Ann made her directorial debut. The first porn movie she directed, “Hung XXX,” was released by Justin Slayer International in September 2009. After all that, she danced many times in strip clubs impersonating Sarah Palin.
In December 2009, Lisa Ann became a spokesperson for RealTouch, a manufacturer of mechanized vaginas. Later in 2011 she would release a replica of her genitals for Fleshlight.
In March 2010, Lisa Ann appeared in a public service announcement for the Free Speech Coalition (FSC) on the topic of Internet piracy of adult content, and was chosen to co-host the XRCO Awards in April 2010. In July 2010 Lisa’s modeling agency was shut down.
On October 14, 2010, Lisa announced that she would only be filming with men with condoms after one of the actors was diagnosed with HIV. She also stated that the STD testing system wasn’t working well enough at the time and encouraged all performers to use condoms on set just in case. In August 2012, Lisa advocated for a mandatory contraception law for heterosexual films to prevent syphilis. In August 2013 she claimed that one of the actors she was supposed to star with was infected with hepatitis C and was trying to work anyway. Lisa claimed that he provided her with fake certificates. When she checked the actor’s test databases it turned out that he was blacklisted by two databases. Subsequently, Adult Production Health & Safety Services announced that as of August 19, 2013, tests for trichomoniasis, hepatitis B and hepatitis C would be administered monthly. While Lisa continued to work in the industry, she paid for fresh tests for her partner to make sure he was clean.
In 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015, CNBC included her on “The Dirty Dozen,” a list of the 12 most popular porn stars. CNBC reported that Lisa was first popular in the 1990s, but left porn as a pornographic actress in 1997. The revival of Lisa Ann’s career came in 2008, after a Sarah Palin impersonation. This film and her subsequent work made Lisa Ann one of the most popular stars.
In 2012, Lisa starred in the music video for the song “Dead Bite” by Hollywood Undead.
In April 2013, New Your Post reported that according to Pornhub statistics Lisa is the most popular porn star. That same year, she was one of 16 actresses who participated in the documentary Aroused.
In August 2013, she launched her own company, Lisa Ann Productions, and contracted with Jules Jordan Video. Her first directorial debut for the company happened on August 5, 2013 with MILF Revolution, which subsequently won Best MILF Release at the 2014 AVN Awards.
Few people know, but she voiced prostitute #2 in the computer game Grand Theft Auto V, released in September 2013.
On December 15, 2014, Lisa made an official announcement to end her career. After leaving, she underwent breast reduction surgery as a sign of her return to normalcy. Lisa occasionally shows herself on webcam and interacts with her fans. She now runs Fantasy Football.
In 2018, she returned to action.
