Kelly Madison was born in 1967 in Newport Beach, California and, as a true Southern California girl, she pretty much grew up on the beach. Her father was an actor and a stunt man while her mother was an accountant. "It's sort of funny because I star on my website and I also handle all the finances for the company," Kelly says. "I guess it's in the genes. I have two older sisters and they spoiled me rotten. I loved being the baby of the family." Kelly always wanted to perform and would dress her father and herself up and put on shows for the family. From an early age, Kelly loved to be in front of the camera. "I get asked a lot why I got into this sort of business," she tells us. "I loved to sneak into my older sister's bedroom and look at her husband's Hustler magazines. I imagined myself one day being one of those women with the ability to turn people on. I started early in life playing doctor with my cousin Janine Lindemulder. My cousin is a very famous adult starlet so I guess we have each other to thank." Kelly soon became very interested in boys and when she was in high school she dated the same guy for 3 years before going out to explore the world of men. "And believe me, I did my share of exploring. I dated every kind of nationality out there."
Kelly did well in school and was contemplating a career in Medicine when her father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. She stayed home from college to help take care of him. "That was hard on me and I suffered from anorexia from the age of 19 to 22," she admits. "I went from being a scrawny no-breasted twig in high school to a voluptuous DD woman in only 2 years. I thought if I stopped eating my breasts would go away, well they didn't. I got down to about 110 lbs and I still had big titties. I sought out medical help and I got it. I learned it wasn't so much about weight or breasts but it was about control and more so the feelings of not having any control over my life." Kelly learned to love her body.
During that time, Kelly's father passed away. She began a career in sales since she didn't need a degree and could make a lot of money. After some unsuccessful attempts at launching her own business, Kelly's mother fell ill and she became her caretaker. "I never stopped looking for ways to make her better but her body was falling apart faster then I could put it back together."
Kelly was busy taking care of her mom and working to get ahead when she changed companies and took a VP of sales position at a computer graphics firm. "I was 33 and in a long-term relationship when I noticed Ryan," she says. "He was on my staff as a graphic artist. He was fresh out of college and living on his own for the first time. I knew it was wrong to have these feelings for this young man but I just couldn't resist. He would flirt with me at work and even though he was only 22, we just connected. Our flirting turned into a passionate relationship that we kept a secret from everyone. We kept it quiet for a few months but then we started getting caught having sex in the office. I was the boss so it wasn't a good thing. Ryan and I decided to start our own business in the porn industry so we could have sex all day if we wanted. Now that's a good solid business plan." Kelly admits that she was originally going to be the talent coordinator rather than the talent. They rented a 1930s-built warehouse that needed some work but showed promise. "We (actually Ryan did 99% of the work but I like to take credit for it as well) tore down walls, put in flooring, built new walls and painted and decorated," she says. "We had a 1500 square foot studio to shoot our videos in. All we needed were the girls." They couldn't find any good, dependable, really hot girls, so Ryan suggested Kelly be the model. "I was reluctant at first but then soon jumped on the idea and that is how KellyMadison.com began. We were using me as a sort of test model in the beginning to see if we could make our business work."
In order to take better care of her mother, Kelly moved her close to their warehouse/studio. "We had to move her not only to take better care of her but we also needed a shower! We look back and laugh now but we had no shower and we lived in an old run down warehouse where we would shoot all of our content. My Mother passed soon after we started my website. She fully approved of what I was doing and knew that I was extremely happy in my relationship with Ryan and I was greatly enjoying my work. She believed in us even when we had nothing. Now that's a great Mom."
All of her life experiences have changed Kelly for the better, making her more empathetic and patient, more appreciative of her loved ones as well as her fans. "I love to express myself and do so through my stories, and costumes and skits that I do on my site. It's hard to say what area I enjoy more, running a successful company or performing in front of the camera. I do know for sure that I am very happy and I am so thankful for all the wonderful people and close friends that I have met in this industry."
Along the way, Kelly and Ryan eloped. Now the couple are still happy together, and Kelly's career is on fire. She was nominated for the 2009 AVN Awards for Web Starlet of the Year and MILF/Cougar Performer of the Year.
