Tracey Lynn Livermore[1] (born March 29, 1973), better known by her stage name Brandi Love, is an American adult model and pornographic actress, as well as the co-owner and chief financial officer of two multimedia companies.[1]

Early life[edit]

Love was born in Raleigh, North Carolina, and is of English and German descent.[2] She grew up in Detroit, Michigan, and attended Central Michigan University. She is the granddaughter of stock trader Jesse Lauriston Livermore.[1] She was raised Presbyterian.[3] She married her husband, Chris Potoski, in 1994. They are residents of North Carolina.

Career[edit]

Love started her own website, BrandiLove.com, in June 2004.[3] Then, in 2008, Love started performing for Los Angeles production companies. Throughout her career as an adult film performer, she became known for her appearances in MILF and "Hot Wife" productions.[4]

In 2006, she collaborated with Gail Harris of Falcon Foto to form Naked Rhino Media, a multimedia company creating porn sites that feature exclusive niche-specific content.[5] Then, in 2011, she began performing for adult studios. In 2013, it was announced that Kelly Madison Media was developing a new website for Love and would take part in the production of new content.[6]

Since 2011, Love has performed in productions for companies such as Brazzers, Girlfriends Films, Hustler Video, Tom Byron Pictures, and Wicked Pictures.[2] Love appeared on the Penn & Teller: Bullshit! episode on "The War on Porn".[7] She released her book, Getting Wild Sex from Your Conservative Woman, in 2008.[6][8]

Advocacy[edit]

Love founded an organization called "Parents in Adult", an educational and legal support group for parents working in the adult industry. The organization, while no longer a going concern, provided parenting resources and discussion groups for members of the adult industry as well as a list of attorneys who are willing to provide legal representation.[9] In a 2006 appearance on The Tyra Banks Show, Love and her husband, along with Hugh Hefner and his three then-current girlfriends, were invited to debate the subject of open marriages in a segment titled "Is Monogamy Natural?". The segment matched them with a monogamous couple. Love and her husband had been in a twelve-year open marriage at the time of the show's taping.[10]

As a spokesperson and public speaker, Love has been invited to speak at a variety of venues. In March 2013, she spoke to groups of undergrad as well as graduate students in the East Carolina University Department of Sociology. Love lectured about the relevancy of alternative relationships and her position that, in many cases, traditional marriage simply does not work. This was Love's third time speaking at the University. Professor of Sociology Dr. David Knox was quoted as saying about Love: "Brandi is an outstanding speaker, organized and engaging. She has spoken for two years to my human sexuality class on swinging/adult lifestyles and holds the room spellbound."[11]
