Venus is of Native American ethnicity, with American nationality. She has not revealed any information about her parents and her childhood life, including details of her education.

In her early twenties, when she was in college she attended a book auction, and on a pile of other books chose one that had a written address by the father of the “Sexual Revolution” Henry Miller. Brenda then wrote to Miller and they became “pen pals”, with Miller later becoming her mentor. Venus soon became Miller’s muse and inspiration, and he wrote her over 4000 pages of love letters. In early 1990 all those letters were collected and made into the book “Dear, Dear Brenda: The Love Letters of Henry Miller to Brenda Venus”.

Even though Brenda was Miller’s last “love goddess”, she was photographed and painted by many famous artists. During the interview for “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”, she met photographer Ken Marcus, and worked with him for ten years. Marcus’ photos of Brenda inspired a coffee table book, with these projects certainly adding to her net worth.

After Brenda’s success with the men’s book “How to Be the Best Lover Your Woman Ever Had”, in which she shows men how to go to secret places and satisfy the yearnings of a woman, she wrote a sequel “Secrets of Seduction for Women”; her books have been translated into more than 35 languages and become international best sellers. Starting in1998 and for over six years, Venus wrote a popular column for Playboy magazine called “Centerfolds on Sex”. She also appeared in Playboy magazine in July 1986, following the release of book “Dear, Dear Brenda”, and in the spring of 1997, for a celebrity nude pictorial, which certainly increased her wealth to a large degree.

Brenda is also an accomplished actress; she made her debut in the 1967 film “Night Fright”, and then continued her acting career with a role in the film “An Eye for an Eye” in 1973. The following year, she made an appearance in the film “Foxy Brown”, appearing next to Pam Grier, Antonio Fargas and Peter Brown. In 1975 she appeared in Clint Eastwood’s film “The Eiger Sanction”, and throughout the second half of the ‘70s had roles in the films “The Legend of Valentino” (1975), “Against a Crooked Sky” (1975), “Swashbuckler” (1976), “Joshua” (1976), “Deathsport” (1978), and “FM” (1978), all of which helped increase her net worth. She concluded her acting career in 1982 with the role of Juanita Quintana in the film “The Avenging”.

Regarding her personal life, Brenda Venus left her mark on many men besides Miller, including painter Harold Frank, boxer Gary Dobry, and photographer Ken Marcus, however, there is no information as to whether she has been married, or has any children.
