Inside Linda Lovelace's Deep Throat
Degradation, Porno Chic, and the Rise of FeminismBook - 2013
Linda Lovelace, the star of 1972's XXX-rated film Deep Throat, is the most notorious actress of the 20th century. She married Chuck Traynor, who forced her at gunpoint into performing hardcore 'loops', confiscated her earnings from Deep Throat and pimped her out to celebrities. After a decade of assault and humiliation, Linda launched an anti-pornography movement, attracting many who renounced the porn industry. Critics claim that Lovelace's Deep Throat changed America's sexual attitudes more than anything since the 1940s; now Darwin Porter tells the story of this iconic woman.
