Fame, in any part of the celebrity world, is a fleeting thing – but that's especially true in the porn industry.
A new generation of porn stars is on the rise and while the old guard is certainly not stepping out of the spotlight, there are a lot of up-and-comers eager to take their place.
With the industry's annual expo under way in Las Vegas Jan. 16-19, we've once again assembled a list of the most popular porn stars. This year, however, only four of the actors who appeared on last year's list make a return.
While well-known stars like Jesse Jane are still sure bets,a younger crop of performers is starting to capture fans' eyes – and earning nominations in the annual AVN and Xbiz awards (the industry's two highest profile awards shows), which we used as the basis for this year's rankings.
Their drawing power is especially important to the multi-billion dollar industry as sales of video content continue to fall.
