Like last week’s profilee in Porn Star of the Week, Monique Alexander (pictured) has a personal connection to Regina. I’ll get to that in a minute. But first, a bit about Alexander.
Born in California in 1982, she started working as a stripper at age 18 to supplement her income as a receptionist. In 2001, she made her adult film debut in a girl-girl scene in Hot Showers #2, and in 2004 she signed with industry giant Vivid Entertainment. Among her biggest roles was a star turn in 2010 as Carrie in Sex and the City: In Search of the Screaming O — A XXX Parody.
The recipient of several AVN Awards, Alexander has also appeared in several softcore films produced by HBO and Cinemax. Other non-hardcore performing gigs include a role in the 2002 movie Spider’s Web (starring Stephen Baldwin and Kari Wuhrer), a cameo in the Season 3 finale of the HBO series Entourage, and a stint in 2007 as a sports reporter on National Lampoon Comedy Radio’s The Phil Show.
Aside from her work as an actress, Alexander was interviewed on Fox News in a 2007 segment on a study that disputed the effectiveness of abstinence-only programs for educating teens about sex; and in February 2008 she and long-time male porn star Ron Jeremy participated in a debate with anti-porn advocate Craig Gross at Yale University.
Now, to the Regina connection. Feb. 23-25, Taboo … the Naughty But Nice Show runs at Conexus Arts Centre. And guess who one of the guest entertainers is? That’s right. In addition to all the sex-related products and services that will be on display, and all the fashion shows and workshops that are planned, Alexander will be in attendance to sign autographs and have her picture taken with fans.
