Inside Linda Lovelace's Deep Throat
Degradation, Porno Chic, and the Rise of FeminismBook - 2013
"Linda Lovelace: the sex goddess of the 70s, feminist icon of the 80s. The female star of the most famous and profitable porno flick of all time, Deep Throat, sensually lives again in this super-heated saga. She was a sex slave, the prisoner of a sadistic monster who rented her out for rape. She became the party favor of Hollywood Stars, including Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Teddy Kennedy, and Sammy Davis, Jr., who wanted to "buy" her throat for the night. She reigned as the Queen of the One-Night Stand until she liberated herself, turning on her abusers. The world's most famous sexual performer ended her life in obscurity and poverty, hounded by law enforcement officers, the IRS, and vengeful members of right-wing religious groups. Even then, she was hailed as an icon who changed America's attitudes about sexuality. Her uncensored, unapologetic, and ultimately tragic story is a major motion picture, starring Amanda Seyfried as Linda Lovelace. In this overview of her life and times by celebrity reporter Darwin Porter, new insights pour forth about the bizarre saga of the world's most famous porno star and the dark side of the American Dream"--Page 4 of cover.
