Life before porn
Lily Cade was born on January 25, 1985 in Los Angeles, California. She spent a brief time of her childhood in Kentucky. Lily attended Cal Tech for two years and graduated from USC Film School. While in college, she worked as a dominatrix.
Lily shot her first adult scene in 2008 (age twenty-three) and it was with Capri Cavalli for Cavalli’s website. Afterwards she continued performing in small films that she mostly found by answering ads on Craigslist. None of those films was ever released. Besides as a porn star, she also works as an adult director and her first work was Art School Dykes, for which she received nomination for the Feminist Porn Award in 2011. Lily is known as “Porn Valley’s Gold Star Lesbian”.
She insists on performing with women only, but she directs boy/girl videos. So far she has collaborated with productions such as Exquisite, Filly Films, Girlfriends Films, Nightingale Pictures, and Pure Play Media. Lily received a nomination for an AVN Award for Best All-Girl Group Sex Scene in both 2011 and 2012.
Lily is a lesbian and she married her college sweetheart Sten Cade in 2008. They were dating since 2005, but they have an open marriage. Both she and Sten had been in an open relationship with the porn actress Lauren Norton who actually resides with them. Lily has stated that she does not believe in monogamy. She has tattooed a black horse on her right arm and has a piercing on her clit. In May 2011, Girlfriends Films donated $1,000 in Cade’s name to Lambda Legal, an organization for gay rights.Date posted: January 25, 2017
