Shy Love is the stage name of a Jewish Sicilian/Puerto Rican pornographic actress. She has been active in the American porn industry since 2003.
Love was born in Wiesbaden, Germany as her father was in the United States Army and stationed there. At age 7, Shy, along with her parents and her five sisters, relocated to New Haven, Connecticut. She graduated from high school at age 16 and earned both a bachelor's and a master's degree in accounting. She is a certified public accountant.
Love revealed on May 11, 2006 on the Howard Stern Show that while she was raised as a Catholic, she converted to Judaism later in life. She also stated that she was married and would like to have children in the near future. During an interview with Gamelink in 2007, she claimed to be in an open relationship with a man whom she said was only the third real relationship she had ever had with a man.
In addition to starring in porn, Shy Love has become a producer, director, and talent manager. Shy Love has appeared in more than 250 adult films, and has appeared as herself on TV several times. Starting in 2004 she began directing and producing films. She started her own talent agency, Adult Talent Managers, and signed Memphis Monroe, and Lisa Daniels as contract girls. Shy claims that her company's representation of gay men in addition to women is unique in the industry.
She is part-owner of a nightclub in Colorado Springs called 13 Pure, which opened up in January 2008. In August 2008, she worked on a controversial bisexual film directed by Chi Chi LaRue titled Shifting Gears. LaRue coined the term straight-for-pay (a play on word for gay-for-pay), to reference performer Blake Riley's first encounter with a woman (Love) and liking it.
