Mika Tan (born November 27, 1977, in Honolulu, Hawaii, U.S.) is a retired American award-winning porn star, adult model, and escort of Chinese, Japanese, and Samoan descent.


Born on the Hawaiian island of Oahu to a Japanese / Samoan father and a Japanese / Taiwanese mother. She was adopted at age 3 by her grandmother and her biological sister was raised by an aunt. She was raised primarily by her grandmother who was an established Hawaiian / Japanese folk dancer, singer, and proprietor of several massage parlors. Mika mother's side was full of models and musicians. Her father's side is full of military servicemen and women, including her sister who is in the U.S. Marines and helps with her official website. As a "Navy brat", Mika traveled across the United States and parts of Europe, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Africa before she went to high school.

Some adult distribution companies market Loni and Mika as cousins, but it is incorrect. She is, however, related to pinup model Josie Lee. She stated on a Twitter post that Kristara Barrington is her aunt.

Education and early career

She worked as a child model, as an extra in television, commercials, and theater, appeared in an infomercial, and at one point was a member of the Movement Company dance troupe of Guam where she performed modern jazz and ballet.

She attended San Diego State University where she earned a Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry and an Associate's degree in Psychology. To earn extra money while in college, Mika did nude art modeling and tried her hand at stripping.

Mika has studied classical voice at the Magdalena Perés School of Voice and is a graduate of the John Robert Powers finishing school.

Despite her aptitude for science, she found she did not enjoy the work as she was more of a "people person", and worked in sales & marketing in the timeshare industry for Dennis Hof. Hof was later quoted as saying, "She is straight as an arrow; I had no idea she leaned that way; I would have approached her to work for my Moonlite Bunny Ranch back then!" She tried her hand at acting in California but stopped after the realization that the casting couch was not a myth. Mika has been quoted as saying, "For the record, no adult entertainment director, producer, or crewman has ever sexually harassed me EVER. If I have to fuck for work, then I'll just fuck for work. Sure, the sex acts are documented, but at least the payoff is guaranteed in porn."

Adult film career

Mika was discovered at an am/pm by porn director Jack Pearl. Initially she tried to work only with her former husband but began working with other males in the industry to pursue her adult film career. Mika stated in an interview, "He was just too jealous and couldn't handle me working with other men". She quit to work on her marriage. His inability to forget about her working with other men put a strain on their relationship and they divorced. Mika also had a third trimester miscarriage in this period, which she described as the worst time of her life.

Among her sex film aficionados, she is known for her intense and loud orgasms on screen, and is noted for her work ethic and professionalism on set. She works with both men and women of various races in her films, always displaying a voraciousness and enthusiasm matched by few.

Tan has been called the "Susan Lucci of porn", having been nominated many times, but not winning any AVN Awards until 2006 when she won for best oral sex scene. She was quoted lamenting bittersweetly on the matter, "I'm no longer the Susan Lucci of porn. What am I going to call myself now? I don't have a tagline."

Tan does primarily fetish-oriented work, including work as a dominatrix and sub for the Kink.com group of companies, mostly the "Men in Pain" and "Mean Bitches" websites, where her intense performances have made her a favourite. Tan classifies herself far more as a fetish model than a porn star - indeed, according to her official listed bio on her website, Tan states: "For the record, I do not consider myself a pornstar and any girl who has done less than 250 films shouldn't either." Though Tan still does hardcore sex films, she also does features with a story-driven nature, such as her recent 2006 Memoirs of a Modern-Day Geisha (from VCA).

As of December 2007, Mika has done over 1,350 fetish and hardcore scenes for video and the Internet. She also takes orders for custom videos through her website: Fans are told to submit a script, scenario, and choice of cast, in return for which she will make the custom video for a nominal fee plus production costs.

Wicked contract star Kaylani Lei stepped down as the host on the Me So Horny Internet radio show on KSEX. Tan stepped in to keep Lei's seat warm as host, alongside Annie Cruz. Just before Kaylani Lei returned with a new co-host, Kitty Langdon, Tan herself left the U.S. in June 2007 to handle some family legal issues for several months. Shortly after, the cast and crew from KSEX all moved to RUDE.TV.

As with many other seasoned adult video performers, she has moved into production, with her debut film featuring heterosexual Asian-American men in hardcore scenes. She is currently semi-retired, managing four shoot locations, working as a certified makeup artist, studying film editing & post-production marketing, and working as an independent consultant preparing random, time-coded quality control reports for the largest adult DVD distribution company in the Valley, ensuring their fetish films do not contain scenes depicting non-consensual penetration while bound (rape scenarios), abduction, or other acts which may be considered obscene or illegal for U.S. standards.

In March 2009, she began working as a legal prostitute at the Bunny Ranch brothel in Nevada.

She is now moving into production, with her debut film featuring heterosexual Asian-American men in hardcore scenes.
