Lexi Luna, a former elementary school teacher, has been starring in pornographic films since 2016.Luna plays the role of MILF in films and custom content, using her wardrobe and sensuality to pull in fans.She said that centering her brand around her calm personality and big breasts helped her build a loyal following.

Lexi Luna, a former elementary school teacher, says her caring personality — and big boobs — have helped her find success as a porn star and erotic content creator.

With more than 411 million views on PornHub, Luna has honed her erotic persona as a confident and take-charge MILF, she told Insider. (“MILF” is an explicit acronym describing a mother whom someone would like to have sex with. The slang phrase is often meant as a compliment for moms people find attractive.)

She performed in her first pornographic scene in 2016 in Florida, where she was living. Cast as the woman in charge, Luna, who was 25 at the time, said she felt nervous being in front of the camera at first. But once the scene wrapped, Luna felt empowered and excited to do it again.

In the years since, she’s expanded her offerings outside of porn films to include custom videos and one-on-one calls and text chats with fans. She decided to adopt the name Lexi Luna to conceal her full identity, but says her on-screen persona is a reflection of her real personality.

Now she has a constant stream of work that keeps her busy for at least three hours every day.

From grade school teacher to porn star

Luna said that she taught elementary school-aged children for five years before getting fed up with her low salary. She wanted to supplement her income with the goal of retiring one day, and she wanted to do it as a single woman, Luna told Insider.

And outside of her teaching job, Luna said she felt isolated.

So she joined the online kink community FetLife as a discreet way to find like-minded friends in her area. When she met some of those connections in person for coffee shop chats about sexuality, Luna said she became more comfortable expressing her sexual desires, including her interest in being the more dominating partner.

“That was really the fun part, discovering these things about myself and doing it in a safe way. I knew everybody there had my best intentions at heart, so it was just a safe space to explore kink, which is so rare to find,” she told Insider.

Luna said her sexual awakening led her to post sexy selfies and modeling shots on her FetLife account, which ultimately got her noticed by porn production companies. So, after five years as a teacher, Luna quit to pursue erotic content full time.

She said that her teaching experience has helped her reach success in the always changing and competitive adult industry.

“As a teacher, you’re pivoting constantly. One kid’s throwing up and you’ve got another one who is done with their assignment. So I know how to adapt to the situation around me and to not be overwhelmed or afraid to ask adult film directors questions,” Luna told Insider.

Harnessing the power of passion, a womanly figure, and a take-charge attitude

As Luna continued to perform for production companies making pornographic films, she began to refine her persona, she told Insider.

In film scenes and on her personal fan accounts, Luna taps into her past as a teacher, role-playing as a one for fans who want to feel dominated but also taken care of, she said. She said that step-mom content is another popular request that she enjoys fulfilling.

Passionate kissing and touching are a fixture in her scenes, while getting slapped or tied up are off-limits, since they don’t fit with her brand, Luna said.

While some porn stars take on more submissive roles, MILFs like Luna call the shots, she said. “If you watch porn at all, you’ll see the difference,” Luna told Insider.

When, for example, Luna receives penetration in a film scene, she controls her scene partner’s movements and even thrusts back into him, she said. She’ll caress a young man’s face, or hold a younger woman’s hand during a threesome scene. And when she makes custom videos for fans, she speaks directly into the camera as if to give orders, she said.

“MILFs are riding you for 15 minutes at a time. They’re not getting tired and they’re not floundering and flopping all over the place,” Luna said.

She said that her wardrobe is another essential part of her persona. Since a well-endowed chest is the hallmark of a MILF in the adult industry, Luna goes for low-cut tops and dresses that can easily be pulled down to reveal her cleavage, she said. Instead of wearing crop tops and mini skirts, Luna wears tight skirts that hit right above her knee and silky camisoles, she said.

Luna, who is now 32, said that she’s typically the oldest performer on any given set, so her MILF persona comes as easily as ever. And it helps that certain aspects, like the sweet demeanor and confidence, are traits she embodies in real life, she said.
