Prince Yahshua (born March 21, 1970) is an American pornographic film actor and director.[1]

Career

Yahshua made his debut in the industry in 2004 around the age of 34.[2] During his early work Yahshua first appeared with everyman features before undergoing a makeover, after which he shaved his head and built a 200 lb (91 kg) muscular physique. He also began wearing socks and Timberland work boots during his scenes, becoming his trademark appearance. He also maintained the same stage name during the course of his career, despite variations in its spelling.

On August 23, 2010, Yahshua sustained a penile fracture during a shoot with Bethany Benz for West Coast Productions. He was rushed to Encino Hospital Medical Center and received emergency surgery, which lasted three and a half hours. He began physical therapy on September 10. It was initially diagnosed as a career-ending injury, but doctors later informed Yahshua that he would be able to resume working after sixty days. He received financial support from West Coast Productions during that time.[3]

Yahshua signed with LA Direct Models in September 2011.[4] He left the agency in July 2012 and began handling his own bookings.[5] In April 2013, he signed with OC Modeling.[6]

On August 20, 2013, Yahshua sustained another penile injury on set. Facing over $32,000 in medical costs, OC Modeling set up a fundraiser for him at GiveForward.com.[7] He has since resumed performing in the industry.
