Inari Vachs (born September 2, 1974) is an American pornographic actress.
Before entering the adult industry, Inari worked in several different industries on the corporate level. Starting in office management then moving into sales and marketing in life insurance and finance.
She entered the industry in November 1997 at age 23 and has since appeared in over 380 films. Her first scene was an anal sex shoot for Max Hardcore. Her stage name refers to the Japanese god Inari, who is depicted in paintings as a woman with long, flowing hair, and to her favorite author Andrew Vachss. In 2000 she signed an exclusive contract with XXXGeneration Video and became a music reporter for XXXGeneration magazine. In 2002, she began an eight-year hiatus from performing on camera.
In 2003 she established the production company IV Multimedia. As of 2005, she co-hosted Playboy TV’s Naughty Amateur Home Videos.
In 2010 Vachs returned to performing with a starring role in Harder by skinworXXX. On her return to performing she commented, "Porn is so much more widely accepted now than it was [in 2002]. The hardest part of doing porn was how society viewed you. It made it tough sometimes, but now it’s different. My mom didn’t even know I did porn until I stopped performing, but now she knows, in fact I called her today and spoke to her freely about what I was doing." In 2011 she was the co-host for the 2011 XRCO Awards with Tom Byron.
