Porn Star Biography: Annette Haven

Annette Haven was born in Las Vegas raised in a conservative Mormon family. At 17 years old she was married, but the marriage was short-lived as they divorced two years later. Shortly thereafter, in the early 70s, she left her home in Las Vegas and travelled to San Francisco where she began working the dance circuit as a stripper. It was there that she met Bonnie Holiday, an adult performer who became her friend and later lover. Annette’s debut porn role was in Lady Freaks (1973) alongside Bonnie, the two appearing in several productions together. The two were also roomates for several years, and lived with Holiday's boyfriend at the time.

The First Porno Diva

By 1975, Annette had established herself through some of the most preeminent and successful pictures of the time; more specifically, she had a reputation for setting the tone on a set and would not compromise her integrity and moral code for anyone—she refused to do scenes that included violence, anal sex, or facial “money shots.” Additionally, she was one of the first American performers who established herself in Europe entertainment industry.

Top Rated Porn Movies and Sexy Partners

Annette appeared as a virginal maiden in the Mitchell brother’s hit film The Autobiography of a Flea (1976) and followed up as John Holmes’ main squeeze in the opening sequence of Bob Chinn’s Tell Them Johnny Wadd is Here (1976). Throughout the pinnacle of the golden age, she continued banking on her marquee status by appearing in a steady stream of first-rate productions with some of the industry’s brightest stars and directors. Specifically, her starring role in V: The Hot One (1978) offered a memorable opportunity to collaborate with a fine selection of studs from the era: John Leslie, Paul Thomas, Joey Silvera, and John Seeman. SexWorld (1978), Take-Off (1978) and The Grafenberg Spot (1985) are other examples of top rated films brandishing Annette’s expertise as an actor and performer. In Henri Pachard’s Charm School (1986) she even worked with her real-life husband, appropriately billed as Billy Haven.

Comments and Reviews for Annette Haven


JM says:
 Check out Graphenberg spot and Coming of angels the sequel for more older Annette.

JM says:
 Check out Charm school if you want the older Annette.

JM says:
 Annette makes me wet with her big hair and ivory skin.

JM says:
 I guess they had a standard they had to live up to with the censors etc. No fetish and only soft kind of sex scenes

JM says:
 Hard to find a really good sex scene with Annette. Back in this day the edits and film work were too quick and very rarely got shots of toes and dirty style sex positions.
