I saw my first porn star love quite by accident. Back in 1984, Vanessa Williams was in the middle of her reign as the first African American Miss America winner; a truly groundbreaking achievement in America at a time when the Miss America pageant was a very big deal. I was an extremely lustful teenager and had it bad for her. During the summer of 1984, it was announced that Penthouse Magazine (like the Miss America pageant, another relic of a bygone era) would print unauthorized photos of Vanessa naked that she took before she became a beauty pageant contestant. Vanessa naked?! Sign me up to grab a copy of that magazine. In September 1984, the issue came out, Vanessa had to resign as Miss America, and Penthouse (a magazine that wanted to compete with powerhouse adult magazine Playboy) was on its way to making $14 million off of that single issue.

In that very issue was a blonde centerfold model. Once I was done lusting over Vanessa's photos (months later, actually. I had it extremely bad for Vanessa), I got around to finally looking at this centerfold model. There was something about this model. I couldn't figure out what it was. Maybe it was the innocence of her face or the shape of her breasts.. It was probably both but whatever it was, I was hooked.

Then, I found out that she was not only a model but also a porn star. I had to find everything I could on her. That wasn't very easy back in the 1980s. Remember, the internet and DVDs were both in the womb at that time so that meant going to adult video stores, which meant travelling to New York City a lot since there weren't any adult stores in my town (they were outlawed back then).

A few years later, it came out that this porn star was only 15 when she posed for Penthouse and did porn, which made everything that she did technically child porn and all of her movies were banned. Because of this, the porn star (much like Miss America) would become world famous and having very successful careers; which they probably would not have had, had it had not been for the scandals. That makes the September 1984 issue of Penthouse one of the most controversial magazine issues of all time.

Oh, the first porn star who stole my heart. It was Traci Lords. Since I can't embed any of her videos onto Blogger, just go to any of the free porn sites and put her name in the search engines. The only ones they show (I believe) are the ones where she's 18 or above.
