Shyla Stylez, real name Amanda Friedman, was born in British Columbia (or Montreal, Quebec), Canada and raised in a small town in BC. Before she turned 18 she began doing nude webshows and knew that once she graduated high school she wanted to go into porn. Shyla describes herself as exhuding sexuality as a teen that people picked up on - she has loved sex since she lost her virginity at 14.
When Shyla turned 18 she moved to Vancouver, BC and began working as a stripper. In 2000, she moved down to Los Angeles and finally felt like she was home. She made her first porn flick that year. Two years later, 2002, she got her boobs plumped up from a natural B cup to a D cup. Shyla signed a contract with Jill Kelly and became a contact girl for them also marrying the CEO of Jill Kelly Productions, Bob Friedland, in October 2002. Shyla and Bob divorced August 2003 and she ended up suing him for half of his earnings.
Shyla was under contract with Jill Kelly until 2005, however she disappeared in 2005 to make some mainstream B movies as Amanda Auclair. In 2006 she returned to porn with even larger tits (DD cup now) and a more toned down look.
