Female adult bio
name= Jordan Capri
hair color= Brunette
Jordan Capri (1984) is a pseudonym for an American
pornographymodel. Capri began her career doing nude and barely clothed on scenes together with Tawnee Stone just after turning 18 in the mid-2000s, but the website network of the Lightspeed Media Corporation from Glendale, Arizona, which she works for, still advertises her as 18. In early 2006, Jordan Capri announced her retirement from the porn industry, but returned later that year.
In September 2006, a short hardcore video clip featuring Jordan and her "newlywed husband" surfaced online. This video represents her first foray outside of the world of softcore pornography. Screenshots of an
oral sexscene appeared on her Lightspeed website on October 21. On November 11, a 3 minute video of her "stolen sex tape" appeared on her website. On November 30, a screenshot was posted on the main page of her website showing vaginal penetration. On January 2, 2007the third installment of her "honeymoon" video was released. This should ultimately be the final installment as it depicts the conclusion of the encounter.
Female adult bio
name= Tawnee Stone
hair color= Brunette
Tawnee Stone is the pseudonym of Tammy Saris, an American
Internet pornographymodel. Her website has claimed her for years to be the "19 year old sensation from Texas" despite her actual age, while her supposed sister Tori Stone is the "18 year old sensation". Her site also states that she is from "the Midwest." Stone's official websites are part of Lightspeed Media Corporation's website network called "Lightspeed Cash". Lightspeed Media Corporation registered the trademark"Tawnee Stone" at the United States Patents and Trademarks Officeon June 24, 2002.
Perhaps sparked by her "girl next door" charisma, there is considerable Web speculation over her true name and origin, and there has been circulation of a photograph purported to be from her high school yearbook.
Stone is part of a group of models that Lightspeed Media calls "The Lightspeed Girls", and who are supposed to be cheerleaders. Catering to a softcore taste, Stone is marketed for her youthful looks — often in seemingly candid galleries, though she has also done a few hardcore shoots; both with women and men. The website also relates "stories" of Stone engaging in group sex with "cowboys" like Ryan Ratcliff while in her mid-teens and hints at incestuous relations with "sister" Tori.
In the early incarnation of her website, Tawnee kept a diary which discussed everyday activities, some mundane, others erotic. Included were discussions of such topics as her parents separating, and its traumatic effect, especially on her sister, Tori.
Stone is also a very successful pioneer of the single-model per website style of internet promotion. From 2001-2005, her site has produced the top earnings of all Lightspeed Media websites. "While Stone’s innocent look is probably most responsible for the site’s success, the fact is that everyone who releases a single-girl site is aiming to be the next Stone."

Female adult bio
name= Tori Stone
hair color= Brunette
Tori Stone is the name used by a pornographic model who is contracted to work for Lightspeed Media Corporation, the same company that hired
Tawnee Stone. Lightspeed has advertised Tori Stone as "the younger sister of Tawnee Stone". Tori Stone is said to be 18 years of age while Tawnee Stone has been described as "19 years of age" throughout her multi-year career. Tori has produced hundreds of pictorials and several videos and has been contracted to work with several other porn sites.
The cost of a monthly registration at
Tori Stone's official site is above average within the Internet pornography industry. It is suggested that the reason for this is because she is well sought after, as she has just turned 18 years of age and is "newly legal", combined with her being marketed as the "younger sister of Tawnee Stone", who is herself a very well known porn star.
Tori Stone is categorised in the porn industry as "teen" and is primarily involved in "lesbian" and "incest" scenes, often with the woman who portrays her sister, Tawnee Stone. However, Lightspeed has not produced any images that show Tori and Tawnee engaging in sexual activity with each other.
