August Ames: New theory over death of adult movie star
There's always an ebb and flow when it comes to the popularity of the stars in front of the camera, but it's starting to look like a new generation of porn stars is beginning to take charge of the industry - or at least command the attentions of fans and trade publications. With the industry's annual expo in Las Vegas running from January , we've once again assembled a list of the most popular porn stars, as we do every year. This time, however, there are a number of newcomers to the list - and some performers who are long-time veterans of these rankings have dropped off.

But some members of the porn industry believe Ames, whose birth name was Mercedes Grabowski, may have taken her own life. Just two days before Ames's death, the porn star was a victim of cyberbullying after she tweeted on Sunday that she refused to perform with a male actor who did gay pornography. Shortly after Ames's comments about working with "crossover performers"—porn stars who appear in gay and heterosexual scenes—she was bombarded with angry tweets accusing her of discriminating against the LGBTQ community and being anti-gay.
