Slim, leggy, and sexy 5'5" brunette stunner India Summer was born Jody Jean Olson on April 26, 1976 in Des Moines, Iowa. She's of mixed Irish, German, English, and Native American descent. An only child growing up, Summer ran track and cross country in high school. She lost her virginity at age 17. Moreover, India worked as a lifeguard and at hippie and jewelry shops through high school and college (she has a B.A. in Education). Summer was already a swinger prior to her involvement in the adult entertainment industry. India first began performing in explicit hardcore movies in December, 2005 and decided to commit herself full time to X-rated features in September, 2006. Summer directed her first porn film in 2011. India has won several awards for her work in adult cinema that include a CAVR Award for MILF of the Year in 2009, AVN Awards for Best Actress in 2011 and MILF/Cougar of the Year in 2012, and XRCO Awards for both Unsung Siren and MILF of the Year in 2012. Summer has been married for over ten years. She practices yoga, Tantric sex, and meditation.
Summer's first job was as a lifeguard at age 16, which she continued to do until graduating from college. Summer received her education towards becoming a teacher. She then worked in finance for 6 years prior to starting modeling and acting. Summer began working the adult film industry at the age of 29. She is one of several performers to be cast as politician Sarah Palin-like character in a porn parody such as the 2009 Drill Baby Drill by Penthouse Features.
In July 2009, she signed an exclusive girl/girl contract with Girlfriends Films studios.
In November 2011, her debut as a director was announced with the movie Perfect Fit.
In January 2012, the Internet Adult Film Database (IAFD) announced, in a release of compiled data, that Summer "was the busiest female performer in the industry" with 78 new titles released in 2011.
Summer is considered to be the most prolific white female interracial performer, with as total of 118 interracial titles as of July 4. 2014. Summer has stated that one of the least pleasurable aspects of her job is dealing with hate mail for doing interracial work.
Summer has appeared in small roles in the television series Sons of Anarchy and Dexter. She also had a role on the Showtime cable series Girls of Sunset Place as Marina Haze.
In 2015, Summer had a starring role in the independent film Marriage 2.0. Although the original version contains explicit sex scenes, the edited version received an NC-17 rating by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). British writer Gareth May, in an article for the British lifestyle and culture site TheDebrief.co.uk, described the film as "a potential game changer for the porn industry. There are some great performances in the movie. India Summer especially excels, and Nina Hartley’s brief role shows she clearly has comedic timing and talent." The un-rated version of the film received the Best Narrative award at New York’s 2015 CineKink Film Festival.
Is considered the most prolific white female interracial performer.
Has been engaged to fellow pornographic actress Prinzzess since 2011.
