Val Dodds made worldwide news and landed the cover of Hustler after receiving the longest jail sentence in US history for an “indecent exposure” charge. This harsh punishment was in response to nude photos Val took on the football field of her former Catholic high school while wearing nothing but a rosary.
Val was born on Valentine’s Day, 1994, in the heart of America: Lincoln, Nebraska. The All-American girl grew up in a typical Midwest household filled with seven sisters, two brothers, and enough pets to start a farm. The story of her teenage years reads like the lyrics to a country song, complete with catholic school, cheerleading, and drinking in cornfields.
Her conservative surroundings suppressed many of Val’s early sexual curiosities. At sixteen she experimented with drinking and kissing girls, but her bisexual urges never exceeded these innocent exchanges. When she lost her virginity that same year, the experience was equally subdued.
It was not until Val graduated high school in 2012 that she began to pursue her own desires. At 18 she started posing nude and webcamming. Val’s career choice drew praise from Lincoln’s male population, while it instigated criticism on social media from former classmates, friends, friends’ parents, and strangers.
Never one to take things lying down, Val sent a message to her detractors. In the middle of the night on Mother’s Day, 2013, she stormed the football field of her former catholic high school, St. Pius X, and posed for nude photos while wearing a rosary. The act caused an uproar as she had debased two tenants of Nebraska life: religion and football. A month later Val was arrested for “trespassing” and “public nudity.” The charges set off a media firestorm, which only grew when she returned to St. Pius X in panties and pasties to protest her arrest.
Val served a 45-day sentence in Lancaster County Jail—making her the only person in the US to be jailed for “indecent exposure” over nude photographs.
The sentence caught the attention of Hustler, as the publication has a history of defending the first amendment and confronting moral zealots. In 2013 Val shot her first professional photo shoot for Hustler. Her story and her natural beauty were compelling enough to land her the cover of Hustler’s 2013 Holiday edition. This exposure led to a flood of offers to shoot hardcore solo and girl-girl scenes. With her past plastered across the media, Val realized it was her name, and her story, that had gotten her to this crucial juncture in her career. Without shame she made the bold choice to forgo a stage name. She shot her first sex scene for a professional studio with Kimberly Kane under her Christian name: Val Dodds.
In the adult industry Val explored her suppressed desires and discovered others, such as her fetish for having her feet played with and her toes sucked. While she dates men in her personal life, on camera she prefers the company of women—as many as possible.
Val has shot for every major adult studio: Hustler, Penthouse, Brazzers, Zero Tolerance, Reality Kings, Girlfriends Films, Pure Play Media, Girlsway, Smash Pictures, ATK Empire, and Digital Sin. Her growing body of work led to a nomination for “Hottest Newcomer” at the 2016 AVN Awards, and a nomination for “Best All-Girl Performer of the Year” at the 2017 AVN Awards.
In 2017 Val moved to Las Vegas in order to shoot more for companies based out of Vegas and LA. She also just signed with A List Features and plans to start feature dancing at clubs across the country.
When Val is not working, she is working out, watching Husker football, and spending time with her pets: a Labradoodle named Jax, a Chihuahua named Bear, and three cats: Hobbs, Dot, and Ranger.
