Mary Carey (born Mary Ellen Cook on June 15, 1980 in Cleveland, Ohio) is an American pornographic actress.
Mary studied ballet and dance from the age of seven until she was 19 years old. She graduated in 1998 from the Pine Crest School, a Fort Lauderdale private preparatory school. At 19, she joined her college dance team. After being part of the team for a year, she began working as an exotic dancer.
Shortly thereafter, Carey entered the adult film industry as a featured entertainer. She is best known for her lesbian themed films. In addition to numerous adult movies, she has posed in adult magazines and has appeared in adult TV shows such as Totally Busted and Sexy Urban Legends on Playboy TV.
Carey worked for Kick Ass Pictures for nearly three years. In December 2005, she signed an exclusive 2-year, 12-video contract with Legend Video.
During the 2003 California recall election, she was a (somewhat tongue-in-cheek) independent candidate, placing tenth in a field of 135 candidates. She ran on a ten (later expanded to eleven) point platform, making the following (again, somewhat tongue-in-cheek) promises:
1. Legalize same-sex marriage.
2. Tax breast implants.
3. Make lap-dances tax deductible.
4. Wire the California Governor's Mansion with live web-cams.
5. Create a "Porn for Pistols" program to reduce the number of handguns.
6. Be a goodwill ambassador to attract business to the state.
7. Make those drawing unemployment insurance do jury duty for their pay.
8. Fight the attacks on the porn industry by John Ashcroft and the U.S. Department of Justice.
9. Allow bars to stay open until 4:00 A.M.
10. Address the AIDS epidemic.
11. Help the overcrowded and mismanaged prison system.
She ran again for the general election in 2006, however on October 23rd of that year, she announced she was dropping out of the California governor's race to be with her ailing mother, hospitalized in Florida since jumping off a four-story building the previous month.
She has also said that she hopes to run for a major party (perhaps the Republican Party) nomination to be President of the United States, which is, of course, contingent upon her reaching the age of 35 per the minimum age requirement for United States presidents. The first election for which she would be eligible would be the 2016 presidential election.
In December 2006, Carey sought a trademark on her name "Mary Carey", to which the singer Mariah Carey has filed a motion of opposition, citing the possibility of confusion between the two individuals. Mariah was denied and the name was granted to Mary.
In July 2007, it was announced that Mary Carey will be the official hostess for SwingFest 2008; World's largest Swingers Party and Lifestyle Convention
Recently, Carey unveiled plans to auction off her autographed, recently removed breast implants for charity. The size 36-D implants were taken out and replaced with larger 36-DDD's and while under anesthesia she realized they could be used to raise money for breast cancer research, a disease in which her grandmother suffered from.www.vh1.comJeff Conaway
