Few markers of fame are quite as clear as being known by a single name, and in the modern porn industry, it's hard to compete with a moniker like Stoya. One of the first alt models to break through into mainstream porn, Stoya is a tall, waifish woman who defies labels, even ones as readily open to interpretation as "alt girl." With a body that might be more suited to working as a runway or an art model, she has carved out a specific niche and taken solid ownership of it. The dark and thoughtful brunette has been published in respected press outlets ranging from the New York Times to Vice, positioning herself as an advocate for a decidedly sex-positive worldview. Her artistic leanings, endless attitude and all-natural body have made her one of the more exciting porn stars to come along in recent years.
