iWRadio_Ad_Guest960_Jasmin St. Claire

Jasmin St. Claire shot to fame as “America’s Most Controversial Sex Symbol” after appearing in the top-selling adult films of the late 1990s. She created an outlaw rock star image that at times scandalized the adult industry. Her acerbic humor and willingness to mock her own porn stardom made her one of the highest rated guests on Howard Stern’s radio show and related broadcasts for E! Entertainment. St. Claire’s first mainstream appearances were in significant comic roles in Communication Breakdown and in National Lampoon Dorm Daze 2. While studying in Bill O’Leary’s Acting Workshop, St. Claire had turned to dramatic roles in thrillers like Angel of Reckoning and the talked about sci-fi drama Trial Run. While studying at the Second City Conservatory, she landed more mainstream roles in the latest season of The Deuce, “The Darkest Night ” podcast, Slamdance Festival Finale Movie “After Adderall” and ended up producing a webseries “Future Rich Wives Club”. After graduating the Second City Conservatory, she started her one woman show “A Weird Kind of Fame” She most recently worked on 3 Days Rising Movie, starring Ice T and Mickey Rourke.

St. Claire’s background is almost entirely at odds with her early adult-film career. She was born Rhea De Vlugt in the U.S. Virgin Islands. St. Claire grew up on Manhattan’s Upper west side and attended the Lycee Francais and McBurney School, whose alumni include Henry Winkler and J.D. Salinger. St. Claire graduated from Brooklyn Friends School with honors for her work in the pioneering “Art without Walls” tutoring program for inner city youth. Upon graduation from Columbia University, St, Claire became a financial consultant at S. G. Warburg (then, a division of Swiss Bank.). But while in a physically abusive relationship with a prominent Manhattan lawyer (whom St. Claire later outed in an interview with Howard Stern), she began a secret life as a topless dancer at Manhattan’s infamous KitKat Club.

St. Claire entered the adult industry on a dare. Invited on the Jerry Springer Show for a scripted role as antagonistic stripper, St. Claire invented her larger-than- life “Jasmin St. Claire” persona. St. Claire’s flare for theater and controversy marked her ascent in the adult film world. She polarized the industry by calling porn films “by and large, disgusting and brainless.” But she quickly dethroned Jenna Jameson as America’s top-selling porn star, and became the first Latina to surpass traditional blonde porn star archetypes when her films achieved number one sales position in 1998. She was inducted in AVN’s “Hall of Fame”. One of the greatest porn stars of all time. St. Claire was among the first adult performers to be merchandised as an action figure and to star in an adult comic book series.
