Ona Zee (born Ona Zimmerman on March 3, 1954 in Los Angeles, California , U.S.) Early on, she worked as a model with the Wilhelmina modeling agency, including appearances in Cosmopolitan magazine and worked diligently hard on her ever famous fit figure.
Ona Zee has made about 300 adult movies; for a few of those, she served as director, writer and producer. She has become known within the industry as one of its most stable personalities, often being described as a strong ally and friend to those in need. She strongly opposes illegal drug use and/or sale, and advocates against young stars getting caught up in that world. During the height of her porn career, she held a minor cult status due to her non-standard look (the "porn look" is commonly described as bleached blonde, massive surgically enhanced breasts, and no older than twenty-five) and enthusiasm during her performances. She maintains her physical appearance, remaining physically fit, despite her age difference to her partners.
Ona's on-screen performances typically centered among standard porn fare with vaginal & anal intercourse, oral sex, multiple penetrations, and lesbian encounters. She once described herself as "very bisexual". Late in her career, she expressed a fetish of performing with she males (transsexuals), which she did in at least one film.
She also created a line of videos that catered to bondage, discipline and the fetish crowd, working in films centering on her dominating both men and women. Her work typically included working with men much younger than herself. She has appeared often with men under the age of 30, including performing oral sex with men that typically performed in gay/homosexual movies. Often her partners, both male and female, are more than 20 years younger than herself. She performed in many scenes with bisexual men, with the two men engaging in sex with one another and her. During these scenes she went to great lengths to place condoms on the men, making an artistic statement of the process of practicing safe sex.

ONA ZEE: 'FUCKING COURAGEOUS' ATTITUDE DRIVES HER GROWING COUPLES COMPANY
LOS ANGELES - The combination of Ona Zee's experience in front of and behind the camera and her sensibilities as a woman has led to growth in her domestic and foreign sales in the expanding couples market. Zee's position as owner and active head of her production company, Ona Zee Pictures, has made her one of porn's few female honchos.Ownership has also allowed her the creative control to make something rare in the industry and on video store shelves -- porn from a woman's perspective. Zee's transition from talent to production head is no accident -- her plan to realize her vision of porn by producing her own work was hatched when Zee stepped onto her first set in 1986 in San Francisco.She realized there was more going on than met the eye.In her mid-30s, she was older than most of the other actresses at the time, but she thought there was room for a woman to run the show. "It was always my intention to be in the business of the business.Acting was a perk for me," she said, adding that she enjoyed the acting and had experience in the mainstream."I felt being able to have sex and get the leading roles because I could act were really wonderful." A few years later, in 1990, Ona Zee Pictures made its debut with the Learning the Ropes series, with Zee selling tapes out of her dressing room while she toured. (However, people also assumed that because her first releases were bondage-oriented, her other videos would be fetish-related.) The company grew quickly, but Zee said the men in the industry were not supportive of her move to production.Her divorce from her then-husband Frank also complicated her company's growth, she said. "For a woman in this industry, the main ingredient is that you have to have balls," she said."So you have to be fucking courageous, and go forward no matter what."She added that she's "shocked" and disappointed that more women aren't in power in porn. The barriers she initially met galvanized her efforts, and fueled her drive."All these things drove me to be my best," she said. Her drive, initially, was for power; she said she wanted her company to be the biggest.But now that she's older, Zee's set her sights on other goals, such as the inner need for success, and wanting to make good product. "I want to come away with something, financial, emotional and spiritual," she said, and added that her new priorities came from age, wisdom, and surviving what she's gone through."I don't feel I need the business to make me feel powerful.Now it's much more subtle -- it's the difference between doing aerobics and practicing yoga." Zee's firmly behind the camera now, making occasional softcore appearances in her features.But it wasn't always like that, with Zee doing hardcore double duty in front of the camera while running her company.However, her current behind-the-scenes emphasis, with the occasional softcore appearance, came because she felt she couldn't be taken seriously negotiating business deals while buyers were watching videos of her having sex. But it's not a step back that she felt hindered her.Working on the business end has Zee a given gratification of a different sort."If you're a woman who was a performer what it will do [working in the business end] is priceless," she said."You see yourself as a person of value, a person who can sit down and talk with other people and negotiate business deals all day long ... and get what you think is fair, and control your own exploitation." Her work has also let her turn a woman's eye to her productions, with attention to details such as makeup, clothing, sound, music ("I think the music we used in the later movies was great, and it made all the difference in the world," she said) and the overall sensuality.She added that many male directors don't have that same sensibility when it comes to shooting.Those touches help when she's trying to sell her productions to the cable market. "The feedback that I've gotten is that people appreciate that I have a lot of class, a lot of style, and a lot of poise, and that's important to me," she said. Another market Zee has tapped, and that has also received her products very well is the European market (distributed through Erotic Media).She credits her popularity because she speaks three languages, French, Italian and Spanish, fluently, family ties in France and her frequent travels to Europe to promote her products.The market has become so lucrative for her that most of her business comes from her foreign deals. "I think the Europeans appreciate women a lot more, and women head up companies," she added."I feel love and support from them, I go there because I'm getting a fair price, they love my product, and I love the way they do business." Zee is not ignoring her domestic fan base, however.She is also working with Doc Johnson for a line of toys, preparing to release six new features, she has re-launched her Website (onazee.com) with the help of MK Multimedia and her domestic sales are growing. "I want this product to stand up over time," she said.
...
Looking to the future, Zee said she wants to expand her work with animals, a cause for which she volunteers her time, and also do some mainstream work.She's also been considering a serious run for Congress."I wouldn't do it as a gag," she said. Her goals now are different. "I want to be my highest inner self," she said.
