Production-wise, Montreal — or Canada, for that matter — isn’t even in the same galaxy as a city like L.A.. It’s like comparing Michael Jordan to a quadriplegic baby. But hey, shake what ya momma gave ya, right?

Pegas Productions
In a nutshell, these guys make hardcore Quebec porn – if you’re into storylines about Saint Jean Baptiste Day orgies and sex-starved CEGEP students, look no further. Last August they launched a one-day training course aimed at prospective male porn actors for the bargain rate of $149. Students get to try multiple sexual positions, but only simulated and clothed. Their official motto: “le meilleur du cul Québécois.”

AD4X Distribution
Whether you love porn or loathe it, no one can deny that these guys are marketing ninjas. Remember Heidi Van Horny, who wanted to have sex with 23 guys for her 23rd birthday? That was AD4X. Or how about Zoé Zebra, whose breast implant fundraiser / 25-man sex marathon was moved to an RV behind a Gatineau bar due to zoning laws? AD4X again. In 2013 embattled SPVM officer and student protest sweetheart Stéfanie Trudel (Agent 728 if you’re nasty) failed to block the release of 728 Agente XXX, a porn parody. AD4X for the win!

It’s your typical rags-to-riches story – Quebec porn version: guy works as driver for porn studio… male performer can’t get it up, so our hero offers to step in… and a star is born. The director-performer is known for his ubiquitous blue bedroom and DVDs distributed through Doghouse Digital, the “only adult video company specializing in shipping Montreal porn to the United States.” (AVN News). If you can only watch one, make sure it’s Swallow My Rod & Share the Wad.

Vid Vicious and Quebec productions je viens
Broadcast veteran-turned-porn director Vid Vicious is more Quebec than poutine and Passe Partout combined. Want proof? Go into ANY sex shop, head to the DVD section, and look for the “Made in Quebec” releases — he is legend. Quebec productions je viens content is “100% Québécois,” a legit claim with titles like Auto-Stopeuses XXX and Recettes De Salope. Vid writes, books, shoots and edits everything on his own, and requires all performers to be tested (HIV) prior to every shoot. In an email, he coyly alluded to “lots of projects on the horizon for 2015.”
 

Homegrown porn stars (or vedettes triple-X)

 
Some thrive, not all survive.

Vandal Vyxen
Famous for… superhuman ejaculatory powers — she is the uncontested squirt queen of Quebec. See her in… 3 Dudes Get Their Asses Attacked and Quebec’s Kinky Lesbians.

The Lane Sisters, aka Shana and Roxy Lane
Famous for… being real sisters who perform together. They’ve also worked with French (as in France) director Marc Dorcel, which is a pretty big deal. See them in… Course de Pitounes and Camping X Treme.

Judy Star (1982–2010?)
Famous for… her mysterious death. Star, born in 1982, may or may not have committed suicide in 2010. A prolific performer, she’s featured in 130 scenes and worked for some of the biggest studios around: Hustler, Zero Tolerance, New Sensations, Evil Angel and 3rd Degree to name a few. In that time she was allegedly quarantined by an HIV scare that shook the industry (unverified).

Samantha Ardente
Famous for… getting fired from her job as a high school office assistant for moonlighting as a porn star. Her last Tweet is dated 2013, and in it she announces that a website is on the way, but the URL goes to a “coming soon” splash page. Filmography credits include GangBang de Samantha Ardente and Beach Party de Cul Québécois.

Lara Roxx

Lanny Barbi (inactive/retired)
Famous for… appearing on the covers of Hustler and Penthouse, and being the first Vivid Girl from Montreal. She’s an AVN nominee (the Oscars of porn), and arguably the most successful Quebec-born performer to date. See her in… Where the Boys Aren’t 19.

Lara Roxx
Known for… contracting HIV in 2004 while shooting a scene with Darren James. She is the titular star of the documentary Inside Lara Roxx by director Mia Donovan.

Patricia Petite (inactive/retired)
Known for… her constantly changing hair colour and spotty English. Current information is scant, unlike her CV — Red Light District, 3rd Degree and Anabolic are just a few of the powerhouse studio she’s worked with.
