Where Are They Now: Porn Stars Volume Three

YBpornstars.jpg
This series has been an eye-opener for me, in more ways than one. I had no clue that guys had their favorite porn stars, and would want to find out what happened to them. I am still working my way through the comments! Here’s another dozen.

ps3LisaDeLeeuw.jpg
Lisa De Leeuw (Lisa Trego) appeared in almost 200 films during her career that began in 1978. In 1987, she stopped filming to concentrate on exotic dancing and making speaking appearances. De Leeuw was diagnosed with the AIDS virus in 1991, and withdrew from the public eye. She died on November 11, 1993 from AIDS complications. Since she had worked with John Holmes, some though she had contracted the disease from him. However, her last public contact with Holmes was in 1981, and he is believed to have contracted the AIDS virus in the mid-80s.


ps3ChessieMoore.jpg
Chessie Moore (Robin Lynn Morgan) left her job as a liscenced practical nurse to perform in adult films in 1989. She’s had at least two breast augmentations. Besides her enormous breasts, she is known for her abilities as a contortionist. Despite her continuing career, she has been married for over twenty years and is the mother of six children. She and her husband live in Caneyville, Kentucky. Moore has a website and a phone sex business. She also makes made-to-order private videos for a price, performing any act the customer suggests. Visit Chessie Moore’s MySpace page.


ps3Peter_North-3-213x289.jpg
Peter North is well-known in porn circles for his large production aid and his voluminous ejaculate. He has appeared in over 1600 movies since he began in gay porn in 1982. He has also produced and directed quite a few. He is still quite active in the industry, and has a website.


ps3Ashlyn_gere0001.jpg
Ashlyn Gere (Kim McKamy) had several small parts in Hollywood B movies in the 80s, and worked as a body double in Basic Instinct and Indecent Proposal. She was also in the TV series Space: Above and Beyond during the 1995-96 season, and in episodes of Silk Stalkings and Millennium, using the name Kimberly Patton. She used the name Kimberly Ashlyn Gere for an appearance on The X-Files. Meanwhile, as Ashlyn Gere she performed in over 100 adult movies from 1990 to 2004. She also wrote four of the films, produced one, and directed another. She has been married to producer/director Marshall Patton (Layne Parker). Gere is now a real estate sales agent in Texas. She has a website, which hasn’t been updated since she moved from Las Vegas.


ps3honey_wilder.jpg
Honey Wilder appeared in over 90 films between 1981 and her retirementin 1988. She often played an older woman seducing younger men, although I can’t find her date of birth anywhere. She now works in set decoration and production design for mainstream film and television productions.


ps3Dorothy_LeMay.jpg
Dorothy LeMay made adult films for only five years, from 1976 to 1981, although several films were released years later. She is most famous for appearing in Taboo and Taboo II. She left the porn business to work for a messenger service, reportedly fleeing a broken heart after breaking up with a boyfriend.


ps3Taija_Rae.jpg
Taija Rae made adult films from 1983 to 1993. At the beginning of her career, she filmed in New York and appeared as a rounded woman with dark hair. In 1986, she moved to California, lost weight, and dyed her hair blonde. After she left the industry, she made a living by prostitution, and was last reported to be working as a restaurant hostess in las Vegas.


ps3annette_haven_01_t.jpg
Annette Haven worked as a nurse’s aide, exotic dancer, and massage parlor girl before going into adult films in 1973. She made over 100 adult films, and also appeared in Blake Edward’s film 10, portraying a porn actress. She barely lost the lead role in Body Double to Melanie Griffith, then became a consultant on the film. She retired in 1989, but has since resurfaced to appear in a couple of fetish films. Now 52, Haven lives in Mill Valley, California with her husband.


ps3Erica-Boyer.jpg
Erica Boyer was an exotic dancer from Alabama til Marilyn Chambers discovered her and convinced her to do adult films in 1979. She preferred to do lesbian scenes. When she retired from filming in the late 90s, she continued to do occasional strip shows. She is now a liscenced massage therapist in Dallas. Boyer has also made a name for herself reading Tarot cards.


Careena Collins.png
Careena Collins worked in adult films from 1985 to 1987, then again from 1994-2004. In between, she went to law school (graduating at the top of her class) and served on the Free Speech Coalition’s Board of Directors. Collins edits a sex magazine, UnReal People and writes a monthly column.
Update: Sorry, guys, for originally posting a picture of Cara Lott in this space. It's extremely difficult to find a photo of Careena Collins without buying a DVD. I hope I've got her right now. Thanks for the heads up!


ps3-Amber_Lynn.jpg
Amber Lynn was one of “the Three Lynns” along with Ginger Lynn and Porsche Lynn. She introduced her brother Buck Adams to the porn industry, but kept their relationship a secret until they were scheduled to do a scene together. She began filming adult movies in 1983, and has retired twice, but always returned to the business, in need of money. In 1999 she confronted her alcoholism and drug addiction, and became clean by 2000. She has filmed 320 movies, and is still active in the business.


ps3Buck_Adams,_February_2007.JPG
Buck Adams entered the porn business in 1984 on encouragement from his little sister Amber Lynn. He performed in 272 movies, wrote seven and directed 62. A series of heart attacks in 1996 didn’t slow his pace of about a dozen movies a year, at least until around 2000. He has been married to porn actresses Janet Littledove and Aspen Brock. His last movie is listed as 2005.

How about Constance Money? See was in "The Opening of Misty Beethoven" which was hugely popular for an X-rated movie at its time.

You don't often see the phrase "voluminous ejaculate".

said Scaramouch on March 20, 2007 3:46 PM.

How about Brigitte Lahaie, notable French star?

I wonder why 'voluminous ejaculate' is such a desirable trait?

said Cibbuano on March 20, 2007 9:11 PM.

Buck Adams and Amber Lynn were related?

Did they do a scene together?

said mikelogics on March 20, 2007 10:23 PM.

No, they 'fessed up their previously-clandestine relationship to avoid just such a scene. They are not close, and from what I gather the two are rarely on speaking terms.

said Miss Cellania on March 21, 2007 1:10 AM.

What ever happened to Raven Turner from Hot Dallas Nights?

said Wish on March 21, 2007 5:36 AM.

said Ken on April 19, 2007 5:20 PM.

Question for anyone out there. A friend of mine claims there was a Tiffany Taylor who was in a few movies somewhere between 1987-1990 before the "real" Tiffany Taylor came on the scene. Can anyone prove this as fact or fiction?

said jim on April 19, 2007 6:12 PM.

OK first things first. The picture above of Careena Collins is not her. It's Cara Lott. Second, I would like to know what happened to Kari Foxx. I don't think she ever got her due and she was always my favorite in the 80s.

I have Ginger Lynn, Christy Canyon, Vanessa Del Rio, Lynn Lemay,Chessie Moore, Marilyn Chambers, Katja Kassin and Arian Jollee to name a few on my friends list. Ginger, Christy, and Katja have all taken the time to write me back. They were really sweet !

said Lee Humphrey on April 11, 2008 3:27 AM.

said Blackcowlneck on December 24, 2008 9:32 PM.

What happened to Tori Wells,she was so hot.

said Mark on February 3, 2009 6:10 PM.

Mark: hear hear, my friend.

www.myspace.com/toriwellsnet

Tori Wells was downright exotic back in the day, with that nose ring and pube-area tattoo, way before piercings and tattoos became banal and ubiquitous.

If you can get past the beyond-ridiculous plot (well, duh), mullets and triangular muffs, I think "Night Trips" still holds up pretty well...and it's Tori Wells shot on 35mm film!

said Jeem on February 3, 2009 10:28 PM.

whatever happened to cameron? she was only in the business for one year,2006 but was cute as hell

said lockwook on March 10, 2009 12:19 AM.

Just an FYI. Honey Wilder was born Nov 26, 1950 so she would have been in her 30's while she was working.

said Hartvig Lein on May 3, 2009 11:18 PM.

does anyone know what ever happened to Rachel Ashley? thx

said illum on May 31, 2009 8:30 PM.

A dirty movie biographer made it public in 2000 that Lisa De Leewe actually faked her STD death and is still alive and living anonymously.

According to reports everal members of this dubious genre have in fact taken the same route of falsifying their demise to ditch the business and get a real life.

In fact, instructions of how to fake your own end would make a great YBNBY story! Consider!

said G on July 22, 2009 6:24 AM.

What happened to Siobhan Hunter? She could act, had a Lily Tomlin-ish face and when performing, presented an enthusiasm that was on the same level of a lioness pouncing on a gazelle..hunger, supremecy, conquest! Not a dizt, not a grande dame, and not a coke choker...she was a woman with a capital W.

Any info?

said G on September 9, 2009 12:09 AM.

I'd love to hear what Mike Ranger from 'Taboo' fame is up to!

said JJ on November 6, 2010 11:21 AM.

What ever happened to Desire Cousteau? I've heard so many rumors such as she died of AIDS, attended college and became a pyschologist, etc. Can anyone tell me what is the truth?

said zardoz on January 27, 2011 7:54 PM.
