Born in the Bordeaux region of France, Mélanie Coste first worked in a travel agency and then entered the “Sex Me” contest organized in June 2001 by Hot Video magazine. She won and that led to her reigning over the porn marketplace in her native land, where sex is as French as cheese and just as tasty. Unlike her sisters in sex Stateside, Mélanie’s film titles are less than two-dozen strong, but they make an impression . . . in your pants! At first Mélanie worked with her boyfriend in the adult features, but that changed quickly and soon she was doing men and women, Clara Morgane being her first Sapphic suck in Le Journal de Pauline (2002). For a more mainstream, though equally skinful, look at Mélanie, check out the made-for-TV movie Marie ou La fascination charnelle (2002). Yes, they can get away with shaved pussies on French TV.
