LOS ANGELES — Dylan Ryder announced Wednesday she is putting her career as an adult performer behind her. Following her impressive showing in the 2012 Miss FreeOnes contest where it was announced last week that she came in second out of 313 entrants, Ryder has decided it is time to move on and pursue dreams outside the industry.
Ryder was a substance abuse treatment counselor and then at 22 she opened a Penthouse magazine and opened her eyes to the adult industry. She started by sending her photos to an adult company, did her first shoot with Reality Kings and, and after taking a break during which she worked as a correctional officer in Arizona, she eventually returned to California and the industry, becoming a successful star.
She was a longtime contract performer for Bluebird Films, has been a spokesmodel for Adelita Bar in Mexico, has starred in a television commercial and multiple billboard and print advertisements and was Head Nurse for DildoDr.com a glass novelty company. She will continue her work as a Fleshlight Girl.
In her retirement she will be opening up a private events lounge. She will continue to update her website with never-before-seen hardcore scenes and glamour solos. She also has a skateboard deck coming out from Ironlak, the international spray paint and graffiti artist supply company. She will appear in an upcoming issue of Velvet magazine, Picture Premium and Australia’s People magazine.
“I want to thank everyone, including Rising Star PR and Bluebird Films for this past year,” she said. “Thank you to Gamma Entertainment and Blazing Pornstars Network, especially Mark Schecter for making my website one of the top-rated sites out there.”
