When Kayla Kayden signed with OC Modeling last year, she was asked what type of scenes she’d like to shoot.
“They handed me a list,” Kayden said, “and I literally checked every box.”
Gang-bangs and blow-bangs? Definitely. Double penetration and squirting? Duh … of course. Double vaginal—and even double anal? Hell yes! Bring it!
“I literally want to do everything,” Kayden said. “I’m ready to try it all.”
In some ways Kayden is making up for lost time. A former Playboy model, Kayden has been regarded as one of the most beautiful girls in porn since entering the industry in 2014.
“God was kind to her,” Sandra McCarthy, Kayden’s agent, said. “Every time I’m with her, I think ‘My gosh, you’re so gorgeous I can’t even look at you.’”
Still, the most-compelling narrative surrounding Kayden isn’t about the star she already is. It’s about the icon she could become.
Kayden has never shot more than 27 scenes in a single year. Every time she appeared to be on the path to mega-stardom, her momentum was squelched by a jealous boyfriend. It wasn’t unusual for Kayden to take three- and four-month-long breaks from shooting because of the problems her job caused in her personal life.
“I was dating someone outside the industry, and my home life was miserable,” Kayden said. “It eventually became unbearable.”
Things changed in 2018 when Kayden ended the relationship and became romantically involved with longtime performer and director Toni Ribas. The couple had a child together in August of 2019 and were married this past October. After being away from the business for nearly two years, Kayden made her return last summer and ended up with 13 credits in 2020.
Kayden, 32, said she’s entering 2021 with more drive and determination than ever before. She said the encouragement she receives from Ribas, an AVN Hall of Famer, has had a huge impact on her confidence. The couple shoots regular content for her OnlyFans site.
“Being in a relationship where my career is supported … I’ve never felt like that before,” she said. “Now I feel like I can do anything that I want. After I had my kid I had this huge boost of energy. This whole year, I want to push myself to go as hard as possible. I want to do all the things I never got to do before.”
