(NORTH HOLLYWOOD, CA) -- After an amazing career as porno's go-to guy, Tom Byron has had enough. Having appeared in nearly 2000 titles since Spring of 1982, Byron has shown incredible stamina and perseverance in an industry notorious for fallen stars and short-lived dreams. He has been a major on-screen presence from the Golden Age of Porno straight through to the present gonzo craze, and has justly earned the moniker "Icon."
From humble beginnings as a lanky teenage underdog, to current co-ownership of one of porno's most successful companies, Extreme Associates' Tom Byron has seen and done it all. He has worked alongside John Holmes, and atop Marylin Chambers. So, too, has he helped introduce some of today's hottest starlets - Nikita Denise, Bella Donna, Jewel De'Nyle...
Tom Byron has lived and grown in front of the XXX camera, to the benefit of fans and companies alike. Now, the Icon is ready to claim some much deserved time for himself, and pursue his true passion: directing. In the four years since he and business partner Rob Black founded the revolutionary Extreme Associates, Byron has created and maintained several of today's most successful video lines. Whack Attack, Lord of Asses, and Planet of the Gapes, to name but three, have set the standard of excellence for gonzo filmmaking, and garnered countless awards.
Expect Tom Byron to continue producing the best in hardcore pornography. Despite his retirement from performance, the Icon is still young, and excited to pursue multiple avenues of business and creativity. We can all look forward to many more years of terrific Tom Byron pornography.
