Weeks ago a weird conversation in the office turned into an often cited post on our site. That post was about the Top 5 Porn Stars From Louisiana. For a solid week, people were responding with their choices, who we missed, and a lot of "wow, I didn't know she was from here".

But, I think our friends in Texas may have felt a little left out. So now we're putting our focus on the Longhorn State...who are the Top Porn Stars From Texas?

This list will be larger than the Louisiana one, just based on volume. We'll do the Top 11 this time around.

Number 11 – Rachel Roxxx:

From: San Antonio, TX

Roxxx has over 250 films to her credit, but by some publications she's what's considered a "rising star" in the industry. This first thing she ever appeared in was Shane's World College Amateur Tour in Texas, which makes her even more 'Texas' than most on the list.

Number 10 – Tawny Roberts:

From: Dallas, TX

Nominated for 4 AVN Awards, Tawny Roberts carries some heavy acclaim in the industry. She's good friends with multiple other stars off camera, who all speak highly of her ethics and professional courtesy. Though she's been 'retired' from the industry, she still maintains a successful personal website.

Number 9 – Rachel Starr:

From: Burleson, TX

Starr has been nominated for multiple AVN Awards after starting her career in 2007. She's a former exotic dancer who's known in the industry for her various tattoos.

Number 8 – Nina Mercedez:

From: Corpus Christi, TX

First becoming popular through the daytime talk show The Jenny Jones Show, Mercedez appeared on a "Geek to Chic" episode where she talked about not being an attractive teenager. She's appeared in almost every major adult magazine, and even in Fox TV series like Skin. She's one of the most mainstream names to come out of the adult world.

Number 7 – Sydnee Steele:

From: Dallas, TX

Appearing in over 300 films, she's a 4 time AVN Award winner, and a member of the AVN Hall Of Fame. Making a tough call on her career, she was a successful financial office for a yacht company in Texas before joining the adult industry. Sounds like she made the right call.

Number 6 – Teagan Presley:

From: The Woodlands, TX

In addition to a lucrative adult film career, Presley has been able to transition to "mainstream" media. Appearing in shows like Entourage, as well as appearances on The Howard Stern TV show. In 2010, she was named one of the Top 12 Porn Stars by Maxim Magazine.

Number 5 – Julie Meadows:

From: Texarkana, TX

Julie Meadows is the trailblazer of the list. She started her career in the late 90s, and is the owner of an AVN Award. After a lengthy career in-front of the camera, she's spent time in production capacities over the last few years on documentary films. She's a Texarkana native, which gains her some local points on our list too. Also, she's probably the only actress on the list with her own action figure:

Number 4 – Jessica Drake:

From: San Antonio, TX

She has 9 AVN Awards, and is an AVN Hall of Fame member, which clears the way for her to make the top half of the list. She's also transitioned into "mainstream media" in shows on HBO and Fox.

Number 3 – Kagney Linn Karter:

From: Harris County, TX

She has 37 Industry award nominations, and 6 wins...all since 2008. She's appeared in multiple documentaries, and does dozens of mainstream interviews every year. Most impressively, she went after singer (and woman beater) Chris Brown after he became angry when she turn him down for sex. She took to her Twitter, and posted text messages from Brown to her. Chris Brown's legal team was able to convince Twitter to shut down her account over it. Big points for that.

Number 2 – Bree Olson:

From: Houston, TX

Everyone knows who Bree Olson...thanks to Charlie Sheen. Yup, Bree is THAT girl. She appeared in over 250 films earning 4 AVN Awards. But all of that is overshadowed thanks to Tiger Blood. However if she continues with her comedy web-series, she'll start to fall down this list.

Number 1 – Jessie Jane:

From: Fort Worth, TX

Jesse Jane is by far the most decorated star on this list. With 80 nominations and 30 awards on her resume. Her "mainstream" credits include the movie Starsky & Hutch, Entourage, The Bad Girls Club, and on the cover of a Drowning Pool album. She was named by CNBC as "the face of modern porn". Hell, she even has her own tequila.

Honorable Mention - Alexis Texas

From: Panama, but grew up in San Antnio

She probably would have been #1 on the list...but we held to the 'Texas' rule and moved her to honorable mention because she wasn't actually born in Texas. But she grew up there, uses it in her stage name, and helps to prove that things are bigger in Texas.
