Presley hails from Houston, Texas, but she moved to California at the age of 15. She was a cheerleader in high school, but described herself as a loner without many friends. She was at a cheerleading competition in San Diego when she spotted an adult film convention next door, and the rest is history. Presley— who's real name is Ashley Ann Erickson— shot her first scene at the age of 18. She'd actually only had sex a few times before she entered the industry, but she was a quick learner. If you're familiar with her work, you know firsthand how far she's come.
