DEAN MONROE
Porn Career Began: 2001
Music Career Began: 2009
Best (and Only) Single: “Closer To You”
Best Film: Heaven to Hell (2006). Dean plays a handsome devil (complete with prosthetic horns) who then gets his fill of forbidden fruit.

Taking a page out of Johnny Hazzard’s music book, voracious bottom Dean Monroe created just one catchy single and it’s much better than Johnny’s. Sure, “Closer to You” is total club fare with typical bubble pop lyrics—Monroe sings, “Take me up to a galaxy / where stars and comets collide / it’s the distance between our dreams / growing smaller inside,” which make no sense even if you own a Lisa Frank notebook—but its bumping beat, echo effects, and energizing synths make it downright danceable. Plus, Monroe’s voice suits the genre well. Sadly, it seems a one-off rather than a move towards an eventual album.
