I was surprised to hear of her death... But even more surprised to find out that she for most of her life after her short film career, she was a huge opponent of pornography. I didn't know about this - only that she was the "Deep Throat" chick. Ironic - the person who put a face on the porn industry and ushered it into a new era ultimately didn't want the fame, and never really became known for the work that mattered to her.

From what I gathered in some of my "specialized" college sociology courses (Human Sexuality, Sexula Identity, Sex In Society, etc), Lovelace apparently performed in [i]Deep Throat[/i] under duress. Her husband was the director, and she said he made it clear to her that her life would be very unpleasant if she didn't do the stuff he asked for that film. And, of course, it's just her horrible luck that her porn career became far more famous (or infamous) than her activist endeavors. I also hear she died in a state of poverty.

CMDN, apparently her husband had her at gunpoint during the making of that picture. What wrong with this picture? A husband saying to his wife "suck this stranger's dick or I'll shoot you!" -- Rob

Yeah Dwarf... That's what I heard. I think the phenomenon is called the "Asshole Husband/Violent Controlling Dickhead/Stupid Fucker" syndrome.

I've spoken to Jim Holiday (known as THE porn historian) about it...she was never forced to do ANYTHING at gunpoint, she was a sexual freak in every sense of the word. The story about her being forced to have sex with a dog is completely false also...she did have sex with a dog but contrary to her story...she asked to take the dog home with her for more fun. I'm not claiming her life was all fun and games...she had a messed up childhood and her husband was an asshole but the claims in her book were to polish her reputation and more importantly make her some money at a time when she had none. This is all 100% true...if you're a historian do the research you'll come to the same conclusions.

[quote] I think were missing the bigger story here. CMDN, what the hell did you major in??!? [/quote]Haha... I had a multi-tiered major -- film, radio, television, English and sociolgy. I basically took all the classes that were remotely interesting to me. [quote]You're all wrong...she lied repeatedly in her autobiography.

I found this article: http://www.nationalreview.com/comment/comment-briggs042502.asp I never claimed to be a historian, and I see your point about Lovelace being something of an opportunist. I also don't believe everything I read or hear. I did, however, see Lovelace speak when I was in school, and (in spite of her embroideries to some of the facts,) I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. She struck me as a profoundly disturbed individual. I wasn't sure if this was a result of her personality disorders, her drug use or the years of abuse she'd endured at her own hands and at the hands of others. I'm quite sure an involvement in porn wasn't something she planned on as a young girl, but after brainwashing and physical abuse, it's not tough to imagine her outlook on life and sex was changed to a degree that would make the idea of sex with anything seem acceptable. Even if Holliday was there for the shooting, etc, I think it's safe to say there was more than a little coersion involved in Lovelace's film/prostitution career.

[quote]Even if Holliday was there for the shooting, etc, I think it's safe to say there was more than a little coersion involved in Lovelace's film/prostitution career.[/quote]Well the word around groups of people who were there (not just Holliday) is NO but it doesn't really matter to me. I only posted about it because the gun story and the dog story are absolutely false, it's simply a fact that neither happened the way she said it. In fact it's highly doubted her husband even owned a gun...if he did it was never flashed on ANY porn set. Coerced into sex by a greedy husband?...Who knows really, there were plenty of girls he could have used instead of Linda...the late 60s early 70s were crazy times...I suppose any girl that ever went to a party could say she was coerced into sexual abandonment...hmmm. :)
