CLUB KASCHA PORNSTAR BIOGRAPHIES
Anita Dark was born on 11 April 1975, in Budapest, Hungary, Anita always wanted to become a model. She began competing in beauty pageants as a teenager and eventually won her first title aged 15. Despite dominating the pageant circuit in her native Hungary, Anita also began working as a stripper in 1993. In 1994 she was crowned Miss Budapest, while her stripping career led her throughout Eastern Europe. She then moved to Amsterdam, where according to Anita, her agent “talked me into doing nude modelling.” This eventually led her to the attention of French director Pierre Woodman. Pierre Woodman worked for Private, and is credited with also discovering Anita Blond and Nikky Anderson. Anita later admitted, "In the beginning I absolutely did not want to make porn films."
During her first casting with Woodman she comes across as a very shy teenage girl, reluctant to even take her clothes off in front of the camera. Anita had lost her virginity at the age of 15, but the experience was so bad that she refused to have sex again for two years. Despite her career as a stripper and a nude model, she had never been particularly promiscuous as a teenager. Nevertheless, as was the case with most Central European girls that entered porn during the mid-1990's, the lure of fame and money proved too much to resist. She would later claim: “I did it because it was fun working with my friends. It feels great when people love me and find me extra sexy, [but] I hate when people recognise me in public places. I have no idea how many people I have had sex with!”
Anita adopted the pseudonym Sonia Berger and made her first hardcore movie titled 'Pornovista' (1994), directed by Pascal Delaunay, which also starred Anita Blond. She later described the experience as being "very difficult. I had anal sex for the first time in my life. It felt so weird!" Anita Dark and Anita Blond, however, soon became close friends, with the latter later claiming "Apart from Lea Martini, Anita Dark is my favourite actress. She's Hungarian like me, we've known each other a long time and we're very close. Every time we meet up for a new film we become inseparable. I love having sex with her. We probably know each others bodies better than our respective boyfriends." The two girls were often cast in the same films and obviously enjoyed working together, while their contrasting hair colour and raw sexuality proved to be an explosive combination.
Most of Anita Dark's early movies were made for either small German or Italian companies. On the whole they were of poor quality, but Anita was proving that despite her initial reluctance, she was a natural in front of the camera. She had no inhibitions when it came to sex, often taking part in group-sex or facial come shots, claiming, however, that her most exciting experience was "being with three guys... off camera!" Between 1994-1995 she changed her name to Anita Pansy before settling on Anita Dark. She also took part in a number of anal and double penetration scenes. Unfortunately, despite claiming on her website that she loved anal sex "more than anything", such scenes ended after 1995 when she established herself as a major European star. Her position in the European porn industry was consolidated at the end of the year when she won the Mario Salieri Film Award.
Anita Dark had a soft but curvaceous body with a beautiful face and a wonderful smile. She soon proved to be extremely popular with the public and in 1996 began working for Marc Dorcel's VMD company. VMD was one of the largest and most established adult video companies in Europe, and was responsible for turning Laure Sainclair, Anita Blond, Anita Dark, Maria De Sanchez, Lea Martini and Olivia Del Rio into major European stars. By the end of 1996 Anita Dark won the award for 'Best European Porn Star' at the Brussels Adult Film Festival. The French edition of Penthouse then voted her one of the top seven European porn stars of the year - the others being Laure Sainclair, Anita Blond, Olivia Del Rio, Lea Martini, Coralie and N'J De Bahia.
Although Anita proved easy to work with, her limited understanding of English and complete lack of French did create problems. While filming 'L'Experience' (1996) with German porn star Kelly Trump, a movie that turned out to be one of her best ever, a French-English translator attempted to give her the director's instructions. Anita would constantly reply 'yes, yes' to every instruction she was given, and then do something completely different. It eventually became clear that 'yes, yes' was about the limit of her English, and she had no idea what she was being told. Somehow the film was completed, becoming not only one of the most expensive French porn films ever made, but also one of the best that either Anita Dark or Kelly Trump appeared in.
Like many of her European contemporaries, Anita Dark attempted to crack the US market in 1996-1997, appearing in such movies as 'Private Stories 9' and 'The Voyeur 8'. "One day me and three of my friends decided to take a plane and fly to LA to have some fun and work a little bit. We loved it too much, so we went back a few more times." Once again she often found herself paired up with Anita Blond, and the two successfully established themselves within the US industry. The monopoly enjoyed by US stars within the market, however, prevented her from consolidating her position, and she soon returned to Europe, where she again won the 1997 award for 'Best European Porn Star' in Brussels. By 1999 Anita Dark eventually decided to quit the hard-core business altogether, simply claiming "I got too tired of it." Instead she moved back to Budapest, Hungary, to concentrate on her modelling career.
Anita Dark appeared in various Hungarian television commercials and magazine adverts, but money was always tight. As a result, in 2000 she relocated to Florida in the USA, where she eventually married. She later claimed, "I like living in Florida, but I miss Europe so much... and, of course, my family is there, so it's a little hard to live without them. But I like my new home and my new life as well." Anita's parents had never been happy about their daughter appearing in porn films - "they think I stopped. They were not too happy about it", she later remarked. In fact she had convinced them that she was leaving Europe in order to pursue a mainstream-modelling career. Once in the States Anita did begin working as an underwear and bikini model using the pseudonym Anita Perger, but unknown to her parents she also posed for numerous nude photo shoots. She would later claim, “I’d like to be a famous movie star in Hollywood. I feel like I will. If not in this life, then the next.” Instead she returned to the adult industry and was filmed doing a number of girl-girl sex scenes with US porn stars such as Amber Lynn. Although she refused to have sex with men in front of the camera, by 2003 Anita Dark was also working as a stripper and escort.
Anita Dark may have quit the hardcore movie industry, but according to reviews on various escort sites she has lost none of her passion for sex. “Simply stated, she is incredible. The guy who said money can't buy happiness apparently never used it to sweat up the sheets with Anita Dark. This girl is literally amazing... in the sense that I found myself in constant amazement that I was actually in bed with her. Her curves and features seem too good to be true.” She remains one of the most beautiful women to enter the European adult film industry during the mid-1990's. As Marc Dorcel once said: "She brings sensuality and spontaneity to every scene she appears in. If Anita Dark didn't make porn films, she would definitely, one way or another, appear on the cover of magazines."
