Hailing from Portland Oregon, the Porcelain Twinz have been quoted by Skin Two magazine, as, “…reinventing burlesque for the 21st century.” They have appeared on numerous magazine covers from Bizarre, Penthouse, Leg Show and Alternative London, and had their shows documented by Playboy TV, worked with Marilyn Manson, Jared Leto and others.
Years prior to all of their success as entertainers, immediately after graduating high school, the pair gravitated from a small town in Eastern Oregon, where they grew up, to the big city of Portland, Oregon, to run in college on athletic scholarships. Destined for a professional running career, the Porcelain Twinz, as we now know them, were yet to be conceived.
The Porcelain Twinz entered into the adult entertainment industry as exotic dancers in the spring of 1997, after a three year long college career as distance runners came to an end due to athletic injuries and financial hardships. In order to make ends meet, the two were thrust into the workforce, but chose an unconventional, controversial, and most of all, unexpected profession of exotic dancing. Portland, Oregon, their home and the strip club capitol of the Untied States, would nurture, influence, transform, and elevate the Porcelain Twinz, to the next level as professional entertainers.
The Porcelain Twinz evolved from strippers into performance artists who would travel the world with their unique innovative shows, inventing a new genre in which they would coin as fetish-burlesque. They would grow as artists over the next several years, and become independent filmmakers, writers, directors, producers, singers, models, dancers and actors. Over a twenty year span, they would work very hard establishing themselves as ground breaking artists, building their career from the ground up, and running their entire empire independently, earning respect and acclaim from the underground.
