Kelly is, in her own words, “a mold-breaking adult Industry professional,” and we could not agree more. She has multiple college degrees, a Mensa-level IQ and didn’t come from a broken home. (“My parents are wonderful and are still happily married; I had a great childhood, and maintain a wonderful relationship with both of them.”) Even better, she owns her own power tools and knows how to use them. She’s a former PC girl turned Mac geek, a gadget addict, and has a penchant for techno-geek steampunk. She also speaks at adult industry conferences on the use of social media and branding. She is, in reality, a Renaissance woman who can take care of herself in public...but looks for guidance and control in her personal life from another, which is why she’s happy as a submissive. As a performer and self-proclaimed “glutton for life experiences,” Kelly practices what she calls “intelligent hedonism”—she won’t do anything that causes harm to herself or others—and is particularly interested in the art of kinbaku and shibari.

Little-known fact: I went to college when I was 16. I don’t have a high-school diploma because I was admitted to college early. And I got into porn because I didn’t want to do the bar scene while single, not because of the money.
