Nadia Randi (born 1991/1992) is an American erotic dancer. She acted in pornography from 2015 to 2016, receiving attention for being a Muslim in that industry.Nadia was rejected from muslim community.


Early life

She was the first of her Pakistani-American family to be born in the United States, and grew up in New Jersey. She felt isolated by her family's conservatism, although she did not wear a hijab.

She moved out to San Francisco and set up a business threading eyebrows, until in 2013 she was encouraged by a friend to perform at a strip club. Influenced by making $500 in one night, she continued as a stripper and then as an escort.

Pornographic career

She was encouraged to wear a hijab in pornography due to sexual taboo and to increase her opportunities. One of her films, Women of the Middle East involves domestic violence turning into sex when the man becomes aroused; its blurb reads "They may look suppressed, but given an opportunity to express themselves freely, their wild, untamable natural sexuality is released. This may just be what was in bin Laden’s porn collection, experience it for yourself". She blames culture rather than religion for patriarchy in Pakistan, and has said she wanted to make solo and lesbian scenes to "show the world that Middle Eastern girls of Pakistani descent really do get horny." Ali has said that she is "banned" from Pakistan for performing in pornography in a hijab, and received online threats of beheading.

She left pornography in 2016 after making 20 scenes, as she found the idea of the 21st, of a man resembling Donald Trump having sex with a Muslim woman, to be degrading. Her bookings to perform in Florida after the 2016 Pulse Orlando shooting were canceled for fear of backlash. Calling adult entertainment a "stepping stone" to bigger things, she told Refinery29 that she wanted to move into the beauty business.
