Brittany Andrews Retires From Industry

LOS ANGELES — Performer Brittany Andrews threw a party on Sunday night to celebrate her retirement from the adult industry. Andrews will leave Los Angeles to move to New York City to pursue a degree in filmmaking at a New York film school.

The party was held at the rooftop bar of the Standard Hotel in downtown Los Angeles with an eclectic mix of guests, including former KSEX marketing director Porno Dan and Andrew’s mother, Darlene.

Andrews, who has been contemplating retirement for some time, told XBIZ in a recent interview, "I had a great time. I had a lot of fun and made a lot of money, and rocked out with my cock out. You can quote that. It's been great. “I had the ability to be in a business I loved and enjoyed. I own my Internet company. I had my own studio. I was producing and directing. It gave me opportunity, in a way that no other business could have given me.”

Andrews will take her experience from adult to the New York Film Academy. After completing coursework, she hopes to direct and produce TV commercials and short videos.

Starting out as an exotic dancer, Andrews began performing in adult films in 1994. Her first video was “Internal Affairs,” directed by Bud Lee and featuring Jon Dough, Asia Carrera and Steven St. Croix.

Entering the industry during the era of superstars like Jenna Jameson, Andrews developed a reputation as a standout performer and uncompromising businesswoman. However, she never achieved the popularity of some of her colleagues, likely due to her strict condom-use policy, which prevented her from working for several of the top studios.

She is noted for her work in the softcore and fetish arenas, appearing more times than any other model in Leg Show and Leg Sex magazines.

Andrews became known as the “Niche Bitch” with a considerable Internet presence early on in her career, and several websites including,, and affiliate program, among others. Andrews, who at one time also ran a full production studio, still oversees the operation of her sites.

With several hundred photo layouts to her credit, Andrews returned recently to print modeling with top erotic photographers Bob Coulter and Justice Howard, and she is slated to be drawn by renowned pin-up artist Dave Nestler.
