Published in 1973, I bought this book in 1982 at the Los Angeles AMOK bookstore with a number of other books with the intention of fleshing out my collection of underground and alternative items. The book opens with a profile of Linda Lovelace (Linda Susan Boreman) by the author, unfortunately NOT an interview. The rest of the book consists of ten separate interviews of actual porn stars of that time. Swedish performer Uschi (Uschi Digard) is probably the most famous of those interviewed.

The interviews are actually fairly serious. Peppered with lots of explicit descriptions of sex acts, there is a large amount of interesting background information about the individuals and the sex movie industry. The personalities, as expressed in the interviews, show these women as very different individuals. Sadness, joy, cynicism, playfulness are in abundance. This is a fascinating artifact of its time and should not be considered solely as pornography (it's ABOUT pornography). This is not a fictional smut novel, though its original market is unambiguously and pruriently geared towards heterosexual males (description, not criticism).

This is one of those ephemeral works that isn't the easiest to find, but I've found four libraries using Open WorldCat that have cataloged this book: Southern Illinois U-Carbondale (special collections), University of Illinois (copy missing), Museum of Modern Art(!) and Cal State Northridge (special collections).

Used copies are currently (2009) listed around $135-$150.

Table of contents:

Introduction
Linda Lovelace: a profile
Kathie: 160 sex films in eighteen months
Rene: My parents and family are proud of me
Donna: I run around in bed counter-clockwise
Greta: She was a Danish porno queen
Cindy: Gets picked up by businessmen Casanovas
Uschi: Queen of the sexploitation films
Malta: Perversions? Most are things I do myself
Maria: From topless bar to sex films
Sandy: You can't get enough sex
Laurel: She used to be super straight

And so it goes. ( )

First words
As author Winston Hill notes in his interview with Rene Bond, we've come a long way from the days when a stag film was a shoddy black and white ten minute real starring retired prostitutes and men in black socks.
