Jenna Presley (born April 1, 1987) was the stage name of Brittni Ruiz, an American former adult actress.
After being sexually assaulted at the age of fourteen, Presley began stripping topless in Tijuana, Mexico. She continued to strip in Tijuana almost every weekend for approximately two years while she was still underage. At age seventeen, she began receiving treatment for anorexia nervosa, which lasted nearly two years. In 2005, she graduated with honors from Hilltop High School and briefly attended Santa Barbara City College. She studied broadcasting and journalism and worked as a telemarketer.
While Presley was in college, she began stripping at the Spearmint Rhino in Santa Barbara, where she was discovered by the owners of the porn studio Astrux. She entered the adult film industry in September 2005 when she was 18 years old and did her first scene for Shane’s World. Around one month into her porn career, she caught gonorrhea. While active in the business, she was credited with performing in over 275 films. In 2006, Presley tried out for the second season of Jenna’s American Sex Star. She ended up making the finals, where she placed second overall behind British-Asian porn actress Roxy Jezel. In October 2007, Presley announced that she was planning to shoot her final scenes with men. However, in 2008 and 2009, she was continuing to shoot scenes with men. In June 2008, she had her breasts augmented.
In 2010, she was named by Maxim as one of the twelve top female stars in porn. Complex ranked her seventeenth on their list of “The Top 100 Hottest Porn Stars (Right Now)” in 2011.
During her time in the adult film industry, Presley was known for her ability to ejaculate, which she discovered during a sex scene with Nick Manning.
While Presley was in the industry, she was engaged twice and witnessed the murder of her fiance, who was stabbed to death by a motorcycle gang.
Presley retired from the adult film industry in 2012.
In a 2005 interview, Presley stated that even though she was raised Jewish, she identified as an atheist. After three years in the industry, Presley’s grandparents took her to The Rock Church in San Diego, where “she raised her hand to receive Jesus as her personal Lord and Savior” after hearing a sermon from The Reverend Miles McPherson. Further inspired by Rachel Collins, a Christian pastor at XXX Church, Presley left the adult film industry in November 2012. Since then, Presley began working in business sales and studying psychology in college. In a 2013 interview, Presley discussed a book in the making about her past struggles with drugs in the industry and about her new faith in Christianity. In August 2013, she appeared on The View with Craig Gross, pastor of the Triple X Church, to discuss her conversion to Christianity.
During her time in the adult film industry, Presley used crystal meth, cocaine (to try to lose weight), extascy, and oxycontin.
