To hear an in-depth audio interview about me and my life in the adult entertainment business, click here: The Rialto Report.
Hi there. I'm Keisha. I have been in the adult entertainment business since I was 18 years old. I have performed in over 300 xxx-rated movies. I have been inducted into The Adult Video News Hall of Fame, the XRCO Hall of Fame, and the Legends of Erotica Hall of Fame.
When I was 18, I started in the adult entertainment business as a phone sex girl. Then, at the age of 19, I started posing in adult magazines and performing in xxx-movies. I performed in front of the camera until my last movie in 2007. I am retired from making movies, and have evolved from being porn star to a sacred sensual healer, sexuality coach and certified tantra educator. With my extensive experience in the sexual field and my subsequent training in sensual healing, sex coaching and tantra, I offer a unique experience that combines sexuality, sensuality, spirituality and self awareness. I'm looking for serious students who want to learn about themselves in this area.
I began offering a personal service where my fans could meet me and spend some one-on-one time with me. I have met so many lovely people, and I know that I have touched the lives of so many through this aspect of my work. Bringing excitement and enjoyment into the lives of people is highly rewarding. I actually enjoy this aspect of my career even more than making movies, because my fans appreciate me far more than any porn producer ever has. I love the personal one on one contact with my fans. However, even if you are unfamiliar with my work in adult movies, if you are looking for a special, sensual and connected experience, you have come to the right place.
I very much enjoy my career. I have an intense passion for sensuality and connection. I believe that one of my missions in life is to bring joy to the world, one sensual experience at a time.
On a fundamental level, I am a spiritual teacher and a healer. I have been drawn to this profession to channel my talents in a highly unorthodox way. I luxuriate in being such a different and unique individual. The mainstream life has never appealed to me.
I am a Sexologist and a California State Certified Sexological Body Worker. I took an extensive course given by The Institute for The Advanced Study of Sexuality twice -- once in San Francisco and once in Zurich, Switzerland. Sexological Body Work is a specialized form of educational erotic massage. It is designed to help the person who is receiving the massage to get in touch with their body and their erotic energy. It has also been called Taoist Erotic Massage.
I have taken Dr. Patti Britton's clinical sexology course and also her SAR (sexual attitude reassessment) workshop. And I have subsequently spoken at several of Dr. Patti subsequent SAR workshops.
I have taken Dr. Patti Britton's sex coaching course at Sex Coach U. I always enjoy learning more about sexuality and sensuality, and passing all that experience to you.
I have taken the Like A Pro course with Betty Martin, which is based on The Wheel of Consent.
I studied Tantra with Charles Muir and Leah Alchin Piper of Source Tantra and I am a Certified Tantra Educator. I have integrated many of the principles of tantra into my sacred sensual healing sessions and it is a powerful way to get in touch with your erotic energy and use it for your healing and pleasure.
From 1996 - 1999, I went to Santa Monica college and I took all of my general educations courses. It was a nice break from being in the adult industry and I had a wonderful college experience for those three years. Then I returned to the business in 1998 and had a whole new resurgence of my career in xxx-movies. I had always wanted to return to college, but I was always too busy with my career. In January 2022, I started back to college at Southern New Hampshire University as a Psychology Major. I'm going part time and I am really enjoying being back in college and studying psychology.
In January 2022, I also took a 9-month course for a Certification in Applied Positive Psychology, with The Flourishing Center. And I also took a 5-month course in Applied Positive Psychology Coaching.
In January 2022, I started back to college and I am working toward my Bachelor's in Psychology. My college courses and the coaching course keep me quite busy, which is why I am now only available on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays.
After I complete my Bachelor's in Psychology degree, I will be pursuing a Master's in Psychology and then working toward getting licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist.
Also, I am incredibly fortunate to taking courses with and also engaged in a private mentorship with world-renowned sex therapist Dr. Marty Klein. If you haven't read "Sexual Intelligence" by Dr. Marty Klein, I highly suggest that you read this book.
My journey from Porn Star to Sacred Sensual Healer, Tantra Educator and Sexuality and Life/Spirituality coach has been absolutely amazing and I am looking forward to helping you awaken sensually, sexually and spiritually.
I have always felt that you can tell a lot about a person by the books that they read. I will share some of my favorite books with you, so you can get an idea of the kinds of things that interest me. If any of them catch your eye, I highly recommend them. I've separated them into various categories.
