Careena Collins was born Sandee Johnson. Collins began her career in the adult entertainment industry at age 18 by answering an ad for a nude modeling assignment and started performing in explicit hardcore movies in her late teens in 1985. She signed an exclusive contract with the company Western Visuals and frequently worked for director Jerome Tanner. Moreover, Careena was well known as a submissive in bondage-themed films. Collins took a hiatus from adult cinema in 1987 so she could attend law school and earn a law degree (she graduated at the top of her class with a 4.0 grade point average), but returned to porn in 1994. Careena not only won XRCO Awards for Best Male - Female Sex Scene in 1996 and Best Anal or D.P. Scene in 1997, but also AVN Awards for Best All-Girl Sex Scene - Video in 1996 and Best Anal Sex Scene - Video in 1998. In addition, Collins served as a member of the Free Speech Coalition for two years and wrote a monthly column for the adult publication UnReal People. She's been inducted into both the XRCO Hall of Fame and the AVN Hall of Fame. Careena also runs a private group called Conquest for dominant men and submissive women and reportedly hosts monthly mixers for said group.
