Desireé Cousteau
No. of adult films 106 (approx. per IAFD)

Desireé Cousteau was the stage name of a former pornographic actress of the 1970s and 1980s. She is best known for her roles in the 1978 film Pretty Peaches and 1979's Inside Désirée Cousteau. In 1993, she was inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame,[1] and, in 1997, she was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame.[2]


Cousteau started out in the early 1970s as a mainstream actress, landing a small part in the 1974 "women in prison" B-movie Caged Heat. Her career stagnated, and she soon began appearing in sex films. She worked steadily in adult movies from the late 1970s through the early 1980s.

She received the Adult Film Association of America Best Actress Award in 1979 for her performance in the movie Pretty Peaches,[3][4] with film director Alex de Renzy.[5]
