Again when porn evolved and became a digital media sensation, Nina Hartley continued to deliver by becoming among the first pornstars ever filmed for gonzo style individual scenes to be published online.
She liked the popular camera commercials Mariette Hartley was making with James Garner and it was close to her own real last name.
This was a pornographic parody of then Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, with Lisa Ann in the role of Palin.
Hartley became her famous last name because it was similar enough to her own real name to feel natural for her and because a famous model named Mariette Hartley was starring in a popular series of commercials for a new camera at the time.
The name Nina was simple, memorable and easy to pronounce for many of the Asian tourists who she learned to please during her days performing in live shows as a stripper.
She has also produced her own series of films that explain, in graphic detail, many of the most important sexual acts.
Among the advantages of the profession porn actress Nina refers to a flexible work schedule, travelling around the world, a variety of love affairs and an opportunity to open their own business.
For many years, she also toured the United States and Canada as a stripper and made personal appearances at adult shops.
