Biography Credit: Short Biography
Mesmerizingly beautiful with a seductive charm and amicable personality to match, all-natural adult film star August Ames has been taking the adult entertainment industry by storm since she first started appearing in pornographic productions in late 2013.
Born in Antigosh, Nova Scotia, August is of Polish and African American ancestry and lived all around Canada whilst growing up as an army brat. August’s first job was babysitting and when she turned 14 years old she began working at a horse ranch in Colorado Springs in the United States during her summer vacations. As well as cleaning stables and caring for the horses, this job also involved August teaching disabled children how to ride as a form of therapy. This aptitude for teaching led to August becoming a yoga and Zumba instructor in later years. After two summers of working at the horse ranch in Colorado Springs, August also began to work at a tanning salon and tended bar.
August mentioned within her July 2014 Adult DVD Talk interview that she was a shy girl before she reached 11th grade but after taking up cheerleading she soon began to establish a reputation as a party girl;
“I grew up all around Canada. I was born in Nova Scotia but I’m an army brat; my dad was in the army. I was kind of a little loser, it was in Grade 11 in high school when I got hot. (laughs) I wasn’t very sociable, I had some friends but it wasn’t until the last year of high school when I got into cheerleading, it was awesome! It wasn’t the greatest experience growing up. (laughs)…
I got a bad reputation by the time I finished high school because I wanted to have fun. Apparently, everyone was so hurt by that. I lived in a really small town so if a girl had one boyfriend, then broke up with him and got another boyfriend the next week, she’d be classified as a skank. I like to say small towns, small minds. But apparently, everyone is ok with me doing porn, they think it’s awesome! (laughs)”.
Despite this party girl reputation, August commented within her March 2015 Fleshbot interview how she never felt like she belonged to a specific clique during her high school years;
“I went through a lot of different phases in high school. At the beginning of high school, I was very sweet, very quiet. Then as I got older I started hanging out with different crowds. I don’t feel like I was anything specific because I was a cheerleader, had good grades, plus I was a big stoner who loved to party on Friday nights”.
During her Adult DVD Talk interview August revealed how she lost her virginity when she was 17 years old;
“I had just moved back to this town I was living in and one of my girlfriend’s decided to hook me up with her boyfriend’s best friend. So we started dating and he was really sweet and nice. He was a bad boy guy in a band and one night we were having a bonfire in the backyard. We had a blanket laid out in the backyard underneath the stars. It happened like that. It was summer, it was nice and warm out and I trusted him. It was a good time. We broke up, we’re still friends. We’re still cool. So it’s a story I don’t regret”.
Within previous interviews August has recounted how she had two relationships before entering the adult entertainment industry but had multiple one night stands. August was the definitive wild girl during her high school years and even started sexting her history teacher! August divulged within her Adult DVD Talkinterview how this history teacher sent her a ‘dick pic’ ;
“He was so hot…He sent it to me the week during exams. We would sext back and forth and then two weeks after school was done, I moved to a different Province. Then he texted me to hang out but nothing ever happened…I would send him nudes too. I would send them before class just to be a tease. (laughs)”.
During a later September 2015 Adult DVD Talk interview August revealed how she was also involved in an inappropriate relationship with her brother’s friend;
“We hooked up at a party that both my brothers were at. I have two older brothers and he was their best friend forever, ever since we were kids. I’ve always known him but we were never friends because we never hung out together. Not too long ago, we were all at this party and I was really tired and wanted to go to sleep. The friend said that I could sleep in his room. He came in and we ended up sleeping together. My brothers were right outside with the rest of the party. We had to be really quiet and my brothers still don’t know about it”.
Before becoming an adult film star August posed for some local modelling shoots and had always wanted to work as an erotic model. When she was 19 years old August searched for modelling agencies online and stumbled upon a link titled “Be A Model”. In no time at all August was booked to feature within her first adult film shoot in late 2013. August never knew that her career would take off in this manner and conveyed within her Adult DVD Talk interview how;
“I never, ever thought I’d make a name for myself, I thought I’d just make a few extra bucks. Even at the beginning when I started, I thought I sucked ass. (laughs) I didn’t think I was good at all, I didn’t think anybody would like me. I just had to get my confidence up I guess”.
When asked why she became a porn star during her Adult Empire interview August simply stated that;
“I was honestly bored. I was working two jobs, I was bartending and I was also working at a tanning salon. I’m a very impulsive person and I decided to try out the industry, just to see what it’s like, in Canada. I wanted to go to the States and go full-throttle with it. I don’t like to half-ass anything. I like to do it and do it right. Be amazing at it. I can’t be a teacher after this so I might as well kill it”.
Although August loves her career as an adult film star, she did convey within her Adult DVD Talk interview how she was aware of the social stigma associated with the adult entertainment industry;
“I definitely felt I had a lot of insight on what it would be like after the industry. I knew that I couldn’t be a teacher after porn. (laughs) And I knew some people would look down but I’m impulsive and I don’t really care what other people think…All my family knows. They take it pretty well actually. I was terrified to tell my mom or my brothers. But I told her about it a couple of days before I left before California and she was surprisingly cool about it. We used to talk every day but now it’s every week or so. My brothers at first hated it, they called me a slut and to have respect for myself until all their friends started saying how cool I was. So now they’re ok with it…I felt I needed to tell them before they found out on their own”.
August Ames : Adult Film Career
August filmed her first adult sex scenes in November 2013 for babes.com. This solo stocking fetish shoot, titled Ring My Bells, was distributed in December 2013. During her January 2014 Barelist interview August revealed that she chose her porn star stage name ‘August’ because it is her favourite month of the year;
“Favorite month- the hottest, reminds me of frozen yogurt, tanning and the beaches. Ames just had the right vibes and it all flowed”.
August’s first solo sex scene was swiftly followed by her first boy/girl scene with Richie Black for the Wicked Pictures feature release Selfies which was distributed in February 2014. When asked about filming her earlier sex scenes within her July 2014 Adult DVD Talk interview, August commented that;
“My first 5 scenes were just terrible I believe. I just think they’re bad as far as performing. My very first scene, I had a black eye because I got into a little scruff before I came to California. My agent kept me booked and I went to set with a fucking black eye. They tried to put makeup on it but it didn’t really do too much. (laughs) So they shot the whole scene with just one side of my face. I had to angle it and you can see it in the photos. I didn’t know how to pose right and it was a nightmare”.
Between November 2013 and April 2014 August shot 50 sex scenes including Art of Romance Volume 2 for Erotica X, Titterific 30 for Immoral Productions, Spandex Loads 8, Crack Fuckers 5, and Brand New Girls for Evil Angel which featured her future husband Kevin Moore. During this time August also filmed one of her wildest sex scenes for the Mofos website I Know That Girl. Titled Fuck Me Right Here Right Now, August recounted within her Adult DVD Talk interviewthat;
“It was a scene where I was drinking with my friends in a bar and I hook up with a guy in the bathroom. We were at a real bar with real people and the bathroom was so fucking small that I could smell my brain cells forming. (laughs) It was so small and so hot and I could barely breathe. We had to keep this big ass fan right outside the door. We had water funnels and I almost passed out. It was just so uncomfortable and so dirty, even though we bleached it right before the scene. It was grimy and sweaty and uncomfortable. Thankfully, the guy I was doing it with was cool and wasn’t creepy at all. (laughs)”.
When asked to name her favourite sex scene filmed in the early stages of her adult film career during her Adult Empire interview, August chose her passionate sex scene with Danny Mountain for Erotica X‘s Art of Romance Volume 2 and revealed that working within the adult entertainment industry had opened her eyes to the different types of porn available;
“I didn’t know there were hardcore and soft-core. I didn’t know there were stills and pretty-girls. I thought you just show up, have sex, and they make a movie out of it. There are so many different components of making it right, making it perfect. I didn’t know about camera angles or aiming toward the camera. My first two weeks in, it was like, “Oh my gawd, new girl.” I didn’t want to make any noise…
I’m going to say the most passionate scene was for Mason, with Danny Mountain [in Erotica X‘s Art of Romance Vol. 2. It was a lovey-dovey couple making love. The scene was two exes, and they had slept together the night before and they were saying, “We can’t do this again” and he’s like, “I’ll change” and I said, “Show me how.” Mason stressed that she wanted emotion in it, and I started crying. That made Danny start crying. It was so intense we had to take a breather. It was romantic and brought back a lot of memories for me”.
Throughout 2014 August continued to feature within a wide range of pornographic productions which enabled her to collaborate with some of the biggest female porn stars in the business. Fans of August Ames should check out; Art of Romance 4, New Stars of XXX 9 which also starred Christy Mack, Keisha Greyand Romi Rain, Oil Overload 12 which earned August and Manuel Ferrara a “Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene” nomination at the 2016 AVN Awards, Real Life 3, Sex Kitten and Big Tit Centrefolds 4 which were both directed by her future husband Kevin Moore, Family Attraction with Aidra Fox, Romi Rain, Carter Cruise, Dakota Skye, Female Seduction with Anikka Albrite, Bonnie Rotten and Veruca James, Girls Kissing Girls 15 and 16 with Penny Pax, A.J.

August was thrilled to be nominated for this prestigious title and expressed within her Fleshbot interview that;
“I was unbelievably honored to have been nominated for Best New Starlet! I also thought I had a really good chance at winning it, ha ha ha, but I guess that didn’t happen. It was a good thing I waited for them to say the winners name before I stood up, ha ha ha. I thought Keisha Grey was going to take that cake! These award shows are always full of surprises”.
Most recently August was unveiled as Vixen.com‘s “Angel of the Month” in September 2016. August earned this title, along with a pair of custom Vixen red-soled Louboutins and a custom Tiffany diamond necklace to match, due to her vast fan following and her show-stopping Vixen.com sex scenes such as Vacation Fun with Jason Brown. Ecstatic to win this title, August exclaimed within an XBIZ News press release that;
“It’s a huge honor to be a Vixen Angel…Vixen.com is very exclusive in everything that they do so I knew that just shooting for them would be special. But to receive this title in such an incredible way is really touching…I really appreciate the elegance behind what Vixen.com does and I feel spoiled in the best way possible…I’m very honored to be named a ‘Vixen Angel’ and I’m just so happy that they wanted to have me”.
Throughout her adult film career August has been extremely grateful for her vast Twitter fan following and has attributed much of her success to the loyalty of her fans. As August explained within her Fleshbot interview;
“Having such an amazing fan base has changed my life for the better because it truly has altered my career. I never thought I would reach 250K followers on Twitter in less than two years of being in the business! Companies like to hire the popular girls for their scenes because, well, it only makes sense, ha ha. So to have such a large fan base and being on the higher ranks on Freeones, that’s really what gets companies booking me every day. Plus my fans are super sweet and all they want is to be noticed, that’s not too much to ask… I love you all and thank you for being my fans!!”.
August Ames : Blacked.com Collaborations
Over the years August Ames has also attracted a vast fan following due to her show-stopping interracial releases. August was part of the launch line-up of prominent interracial porn site Blacked.com alongside Jillian Janson, Keisha Grey, Natasha White, Scarlet Red and Cherie Deville in May 2014 and thus featured within their November 2014 DVD feature release My First Interracial 2. This popular pornographic production was nominated for “Best Interracial Movie” at the 2016 AVN Awards and “Interracial Release of the Year” at the 2016 XBIZ Awards.
Since this time August has filmed a wealth of online sex scenes and feature releases for Blacked.com and its award-winning adult film director Greg Lansky including August Ames Gets An Interracial Creampie in March 2015 and Cum Inside Me in May 2015 which won “Best Specialty – Other Genre” at the 2016 AVN Awards. Whilst talking about being chosen to pose as the DVD cover model for this award-winning production during an AVN press release, August expressed that;
“First of all, I am always honored when Greg Lansky wants to book me for one of his projects; his work is truly beautiful and it’s amazing being a part of the girls that he wants to reveal in his movies. He is very picky. The cover is a whole other story… I didn’t think for even a second that Greg Lansky would chose me for the Cum Inside Me cover. I’m greatly appreciative that he made this happen. This is my first cover for Blacked so I will cherish it always”.
August also starred in Blacked.com’s Married Wives Love Big Black Cocks production in November 2015 which featured a three-way sex scene with Abigail Mac and Rob Piper. Thrilled to be working with rising female starlet Abigail Mac, August enthused within an XBIZ News press release how;
“When Greg offered me to do another Blacked scene, of course, I jumped on it…I had been wanting to work with Abigail for such a long time so when I got the call about the scene I was beyond excited!”.
Describing her Blacked.com collaboration with Greg Lansky during her Fleshbot interview, August commented that;
“Greg Lansky lives for beauty. So when he directs his scenes you can really see all of the detail he puts into every little thing. Plus, he is a great guy. We always get along and I enjoy what he has in store for me. He really respects women and he knows what sells so he’s very successful. Plus, Blacked is like, Blacked ha ha, it was an honor for me when he shot me”.

August Ames : Latest Releases & Upcoming Projects

In recent months August has starred within the March 2016 Girlfriends Films production Don’t Tell Daddy in a saucy girl/girl scene with one of her favourite female performers Abella Danger. August reunited with Abella Danger as well as rising female starlets Jessa Rhodes, Charlotte Stokely, Scarlet Sage and Alexa Grace for the August 2016 Mile High DVD feature release First Dates 1.
August has even started to perform for several virtual reality porn sites. Fans looking for a new way to enjoy August Ames’s adult film exploits should check out her hologirlsvr.com recent releases Lights Camera Action and HoloGirls: Their First Time which feature August, Anikka Albrite, Adriana Sephora and Karlie Montana up close and personal in 3D!
In addition to these HoloFilm Productions, August has also been showcased within the September 2016 WankzVR production GFE: August Ames. Created as part of WankzVR‘s Girlfriend Experience virtual reality porn franchise, WankzVR‘s lead video editor Teekay expressed within an XBIZ News press release how August Ames was the perfect choice to feature within this hi-tech production;
“August Ames is such a natural when it comes to acting…From her infectious smile to her cute, beckoning voice to even the little changes in her facial expressions, August Ames stops being a porn star and transforms into your girlfriend right before your eyes. VR has put emotion back into porn and it makes for a complete erotic experience”.
Over the course of her prolific porn star career August has filmed a plethora of boy/girl, girl/girl, three-way, solo, fetish, gonzo and POV sex scenes but she has not yet ventured into anal-themed releases. In recent years there has been a great deal of speculation surrounding August’s first anal sex scene. Consequently, when she was asked about whether she would film her first anal sex scene in the near future, August conveyed within her September 2015 Adult DVD Talk interview with Captain Jack how;
“(laughs) Anal has been like this whole big thing with me lately. At the beginning of the year, I said I was going to do it. I wanted to do it. The whole thing was that me and Kevin (Moore) wanted to film my first one. I bought this stuff to practice and I was practicing for a few months. But every time I went to practice stretching it out, it was so uncomfortable and totally made me feel bad about it. I ended up not even wanting to do it. I just got totally turned off by the whole idea. It was never fun to practice, it always hurt. So what’s the fucking point if it hurts? Why am I going to do it? We actually set a date to do it and then I ended up not doing it. My body’s just not up to it, to handle it. I didn’t want to waste money and everyone’s time and then at the end of the day not doing it. I just have to practice more or just take some more time. It’s not completely off the table, it’s just that I can’t see myself doing it now…I also want to do more mainstream work. But I’ll probably still be involved in porn because Kevin’s still a director, so I’ll be involved in it. I’ll just go with the flow. (laughs)”.
Despite not wanting to film anal sex scenes for the time being, August is by no means slowing down with regards to her adult film career! In fact, August mentioned within her recent Fleshbot interview that;
“I just want to be at the top of my game, baby! Once you go into porn it isn’t like you can do anything you want after it, like be a teacher or a pastor, ha ha, so when you go into porn, you have to be motherfucking amazing and make your name amazing, so when it’s your time to stop performing, you can crossover into mainstream work because your name is so big! That’s basically my plan, ha ha. Plus, who wants to half-ass a sex scene that will be seen by a million people, lol???…You get a lot of job offers outside of porn! I’ve done a lot of mainstream modeling, I’ve been offered small roles in shows and movies because they knew I would be comfortable with a topless scene, plus I’ve done some music videos. It’s not all about the porn, it’s about your brand and branching out. Plus you get recognized in public and it makes you feel good”.
As matters stand, August is happily married to prominent adult film photographer Kevin Moore and hopes to start a family in the future. When asked about her long term plans and her interests outside of the adult film industry, August mentioned within her April 2014 AVN: Fresh Face interview that;
“I fantasize about different little things, like being a teacher. The other one was being a flight attendant, but with all the traveling I’m doing now I can see why flight attendants loathe their jobs. I’d say being a teacher or a stay-at-home mom…Honestly, I’m a workaholic, I work all the time! So when I have a day off, my idea of fun is to get my nails redone, go for a nice tan, and just chill out, eat food and watch television. On a really nice day I’ll hit up the beach with my girlfriend, but other than that, I’m enjoying being lazy, ha ha”
August was found dead at age 23 on December 7, 2017, after controversial tweets she posted caused cyber attacks on her that lead to her taking her own life.
