Kristara Barrington (born
November 22, 1965 in New Orleans, Louisiana) is a former American
pornographic actress. Her Eurasian appearance allowed her to switch
between playing Asian and European roles. One of her most famous roles
was a prostitute in 1985's New Wave Hookers.
Porn Star Kristara Barrington's exuberant sexual style and sweltering
chili pepper-like liveliness was hotter than a sparkler on the fourth of
July. Kristara Barrington was one of the hottest adult stars of the
'80s, and still has an ever-present and loyally massive fan base. This
beautiful Eurasian performer was born and raised in the United States,
but could easily flip flop between playing Asian and non-Asian roles no
matter the call for action Miss Barrington could really put out one hell
of a showing.
True to her Sagittarius Astrological sign Kristara Barrington: Of
restless nature, Sagittarius is easily influenced and quick to become
bored. They love the adventure of travel and often feel the need to be
outdoors. For Sagittarius, exploration is the spice of life, whether it
is mental or in the physical presence of being. They are always
optimistic energetic (nearly hyperactive) and often have good fortune
just when it is needed the most. They are interested in the theatric
performing and philosophical fields. Sagittarius has difficulty with
follow-through, procrastination is often the case, and commitments are
easily thrown to the wind for chance of adventure. Sagittarius prefers
to keep all options open and often leans toward the single carefree
A Louisiana born - Chicago native, Barrington appeared in over 170
movies between 1984 and 1989.
In spite of the large numbers of men who seem to have an attraction
toward oriental women there were few Asians in the X-Rated 80’s. Linda
Wong was the first Asian porn queen, with a string of classic movies in
the 70’s. Mai Lin also comes to mind. But the number one (no pun
intended) Asisan star in 80’s porn was undoubtedly Kristara Barrington.
Born in the US, Kristara never quite fit the mold as the stereotypical
submissive oriental lady waiting to serve her master in whatever way he
deemed fit. She was too American for that. As you will see in the
closing moments of this scene, she could tell a man exactly what she
wanted, in no uncertain terms. So if you like that innocent look which
is betrayed by a dirty mouth, you are going to love Kristara.
Kristarra Barrington appears outstandingly in the 1983 documentary
Fallen Angels. The small-breasted asian was also know as Kimberly Wong,
Kim Warner and Chi Chi Ling in some of her early on videos. Barrington
did anal sex rarely - in Caught From Behind 3, Deliveries in the Rear
and Tailenders. She said she didn't enjoy such sex because no one could
do it right.
Making over 150 adult videos during her career, Kristara combined a
fresh attitude that made her an instant hit. Among her best performance
in one of XXX's all-time best sellers, New Wave Hookers 1. Other great
Barrington performances can be seen in Baby Face 2, Beyond Desire and
House of Lust.
Her most notable performance came as the sushi delivery girl in New Wave
Hookers. She gets railed by three men until she's so exhausted that she
has to be carried from the room. Kristara's most famous scene that
you'll never see was an S-M session with Jamie Gillis in Ecstasy Girls
2. The best scene of the film was done by Kristara Barrington receiving
the advances of 80’s funnyman and porn star Jack Baker as kinky Jamie
Gillis gets ready to join in the action with Kristara wearing hot wax in
her sexy scene with Gillis.
Kristarra performed with spirit, and most any video that lists her name
has a good performance. Her best productions include Jane Bond Meets
Octopussy, Inside China Lee, BYOB, One Night in Bangkok, Rambone does
Hollywood and Give It to Me.
In an article that ran on October 11, 1985, Barrington told the San
Diego Union-Tribune while at a pornographic-industry convention that "I
don't feel like a prostitute. I'm an actress; I am paid for a job. Sure
you're selling yourself, but people sell themselves for all kinds of
Throughout the 1980s Kristara Barrington earned a reputation in adult
films as a top performer. Often cast with such reigning porn queens as
Traci Lords, Christy Canyon and Ginger Lynn Allen, this Asian beauty
ranked just a notch below these icons in fan popularity, and her
combination of exotic looks, a terrific body and enthusiastic
performances made her a fan favorite. She eventually left the porn
industry to continue her studies pursuing the vocation as a veterinarian
but were not sure if she has completed those studies as of lately.
Recent notification has placed our 80’s superstar in Chicago working
with other friends of the family and supporting family members doing
bookkeeping for a relatives Korean grocery stores.
