Profile Bio Text
Born to an Armenian-American father and an Italian-American mother, Canyon grew up in California`s San Fernando Valley.
Christy`s sister recalled,
"When Christy was in second grade, she coerced all these girls into drawing their own Playboy [style] magazines to sell to all the boys. And because she was the ringleader, she got sent down to the principal`s office."
She got kicked out of Providence High School, later graduating from North Hollywood High. Christy holds an associate`s degree in merchandise marketing.
From 1984 to 1997, Canyon appeared in over 200 porno films. She has won several "best female performance" awards and is a member of the XRCO Hall of Fame.
Upon entering the adult film industry in 1984, Canyon quickly became a sensation with both performers and viewers alike, quickly rising to become one of the most well-known porn stars of the 1980`s. Canyon is best known for her natural beauty, large natural breasts, voluptuous body, and significant amount of dark brown pubic hair.
Canyon primarily engaged in standard adult fare consisting of vaginal intercourse, oral sex, lesbian encounters, and small party group sex during her career. Christy did one anal scene in Swedish Erotica 4, Volume #13, Chapter #11.
She came on the scene at about the same time as Traci Lords, and the two of them almost immediately challenged reigning porn queen Ginger Lynn Allen for the top position in the business. By 1987 Traci was gone, having left the industry, and Christy was establishing herself as the #1 fan draw.
Following the Traci Lords fiasco, Christy took a three-year break from the industry and explored other personal interests. In 1989, Christy returned to porn, but exclusively for her own company, Canyon Video, which produced such titles as I Dream of Christy, and The Coming of Chisty among others. With Canyon Video, Christy called her own shots, earning generous royalties from video sales, as well as personally choosing the actors and actresses she most wanted to work with.
It was also during the Canyon Video era that Christy developed a fondness for well-endowed male pornstars, and subsequently worked only with extremely well hung male stars.
After a year with Canyon Video, Christy signed with Vivid Video following a very lucrative offer, reportedly one of the most generous contracts at that time, and quickly became even more popular under the Vivid brand, appearing in such titles as Twisted (with T.T. Boy), A Portrait of Christy, Christy in the Wild, the award-winning On Trial 2, and Bardot.
Christy left the industry again after a few years and began exploring the world of exotic dancing. According to her autobiography, she immensely enjoyed the opportunities of exotic dancing, which continued for just over a year. She also revealed in her book that she engaged in a number of one night stands with various men she found attractive while on the road.
Upon this return to porn in the mid-1990s, Christy found that the male porn talent pool had dramatically expanded during the year of her dancing hiatus, with many young, handsome, and chiseled porn actors who were not in the industry during Christy`s previous stints, becoming quite vocal about wanting to work with the legend. Naturally, she quickly sought out and selected only the more attractive and well-endowed porn actors to work with (most of which she had offscreen flings with), and went on to star in several highly successful films for Vivid such as Comeback (Canyon`s comeback film), Sex Secrets of a Mistress, and the Domination Nation series.
In a recent interview on Taylor Wane`s radio show, Christy revealed that although she had to engage in "safe sex" on camera with all of her male co-stars during her time with Vivid in the mid 1990`s as a result of Vivid`s then-"Condom Only" policy, having protected sex wasn`t really something she particularly practiced in her private life, and that she preferred having unprotected sex with every one of her male co-stars off camera.
In the summer of 1996, Christy retired from both the industry for the final time at the age of 31. Soon after, she resumed dancing in the feature dancing circuit and enjoyed tremendous success.
Within a few years, she married adult video magazine editor Jeremy Stone. Canyon continued to dance, and after only a couple of years with Stone, their divorce was finalized as well in 1999. It was around this time where she became reacquainted with a man named Grant, a friend during her high school years. The two dated for years, and finally got married in 2002 after her retirement from the dancing circuit. Christy stayed in touch with her fans through appearances at porn conventions, eBay auctions, and her website, ChristyCanyon.com.
In 2003, Canyon published her autobiography, Lights, Camera, Sex!, and later participated as a judge on Jenna Jameson`s American Sex Star show.
