At 21--still a student in Modern Literature--she became the egery of "Penthouse" (France) Magazine.
She has received more than 35 awards from all over the world--from Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Brussels, Mexico, Berlin, Barcelona to Turin, Prague and Paris--and is quite possibly the most rewarded adult actress in the world, with numerous magazine covers and media appearances. She collaborated with director Gaspar Noé, photographers Michael Grecco and Deborah Anderson and played her own character in the comedy Les Kaïra (2012). In 2011 she had her own TV show on the French channel MCM.

In 2013 she was the face of Alloresto, the commercial for which received the E-Marketing award for Best Video. A personality very popular with the public, Katsuni has been ranked among the 100 most influential women in France.
Always eager to take up new challenges, she keeps living her dream of adventuress and shares her vision of sexuality through her blog on "Les Inrocks." Believing in empowering women, she teaches striptease to them, showing them how to express themselves through sensuality, whatever their age or shape. She's also working on a comic.
Her reflexion on sexuality encouraged her to collaborate with visual artist Prune Nourry about gender identity and gender / religion report in a project called "Genesis"), and artist Iglika Christova on the question of one's relationship to one's body, in a project called "Imaginary Areas". Katsuni has retired from porn and begun a new career as an actress and aerialist performer.
