LOS ANGELES — Jessa Rhodes is remembering 2016 as a year in which she took her career to the next level.
The adult star became the face of Hustler’s billboard campaign this year, appearing on billboards on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip and elsewhere. And she was a guest at the grand opening of Larry Flynt’s Hustler Hollywood store at Hollywood & Vine.
Rhodes was featured in a variety of adult films this year, from gonzo to features to BDSM, and appeared on many DVD box covers.
“I think that, for me, 2016 was the year where I really came into my own,” Rhodes said. “I had a lot of great opportunities come along and took advantage of the best of them. A lot of good came out of it, and I set myself up for an even bigger 2017 — which I think is very exciting.”
Rhodes received two nominations in the Best Sex Scene: Feature Release category in the 2017 XBIZ Awards, to be held at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles on Jan. 12. One is for a scene with Mia Malkova, and the other for a scene with Xander Corvus.
