I had considered this series complete with three volumes, but requests have trickled in steadily. So after regrouping, I began my research anew to find whatever happened to your favorite adult film stars. It’s not easy, because a lot of former porn stars (understandibly) do not want to be found. But I rounded up another eleven!
Carol Connors made about twenty adult films between 1970 and 1986. She married adult film star Jack Birch, whom she met when they worked together in Deep Throat. She retired from adult films and is now managing the career of their daughter, actress Thora Birch, who did a topless scene in American Beauty when she was just 17.
Nici Sterling was a nude model who broke into adult films when the adult newspaper she worked for ran a contest to select ten winners who would have sex with her on film. Afterward, she moved to the US and appeared in over 150 hardcore films so far. In 1991, she married porn star Wylde Oscar, with whom she has one daughter. Sterling keeps a website.
Veronica Hart pursued a mainstream acting career until she was burned by a coffee urn, which left scarring on one side of her body. She then turned to porn, and starred in 150 adult movies between 1980 and 1984. She then turned to the administrative side of adult films, although she still makes an occasional non-sex appeareance. She acted in the 1997 film Boogie Nights. Under the name Jane Hamilton, she has produced 12 movies and directed 26, the latest listed in 2004.
Loni Sanders (Jennifer Lynn Wren) modeled for men’s magazines in the late seventties, and began her adult film career in 1980 at the urging of her future husband, adult film star Mike Ranger (whom she later divorced). She made 32 films up until 1993. In 1984 she became a production manager for Vivid Films, which was owned by her then-boyfriend Steve Hirsch. They split in 1997. Sanders now lives in Los Angeles with herboyfriend, the ex-CEO of Metro Studios.
Linda Wong was the first Asian to become a big name in the porn industry. She appeared in a couple of dozen movies between 1976 and 1981, when she retired, but made two comeback attempts when she needed the money. Wong was a drug addict. She was out on bond for drug charges when she died of an accidental drug overdose (Xanax, Chloryl Hydrate, and alcohol) on December 17, 1987.
Sarah Young began in pornographic photo shoots and adult films at age 18 in her native England. She moved to Germany in 1989 and married film producer Hans Moser (Sascha Alexander) in 1991. In 1992 she opened her first sex shop, which grew to a chain of eleven shops in Germany. Young starred in over 200 films and was the first adult film actress to earn a million dollars for a single film. She retired from filming in 1997. She has since divorced Moser and now lives in the Unites States, where she is pursuing a law degree. She maintains a website and another site to sell movies.
Candie Evans (Jean Poremba) was only active in adult films for three years (1985-1987), but made over 90 films in that time.
She then married Jim Starr, who portrayed Laser in the TV series American Gladiators. They live in Orlando with their two children. Evans would like to put her former career behind her.
Annie Sprinkle is the only known porn star to later obtain a PhD (in Human Sexuality). She has made 85 adult films since 1973, but is even better known as a performance artist and sex educator. Sprinkle has traveled the word performing one-woman shows for 17 years now. Her current show is called Exposed; Experiments in Love, Sex, Death and Art. She and her partner Elizabeth Stephens are in the third year of a seven-year art project detailed at their website The Love Art Laboratory. Sprinkle also has a personal website.
John Dough performed in nearly 1,100 movies between 1985 and 2006. He also directed 71 adult films. Dough committed suicide on August 27, 2006 by drug overdose. He left behind his wife, pornographic actress Monique DeMoan and a four-year-old daughter.
Juliet “Aunt Peg” Anderson, a former overseas English teacher, was 39 years old when she did her first adult film. She made about 70 adult films between 1977 and 1984, then moved into directing films, and even produced one. After retiring from films, she modeled, worked as a phone sex operator, and became a massage therapist. Anderson made a photo spread for Hot Mom Magazine as late as 2003, at the age of 64! She has a website, where she sells photographs of herself.
Brigitte Lahaie is a French porn actress who also had a few mainstream acting roles. She has appeared in over 100 films. After leaving the porn industry, she became famous as a regular on the French radio show Les Grosses Tetes (The Fatheads). She is now with Radio Monte Carlo, doing a two-hour daily show called Lahaie, l'Amour et Vous, which deals with sexuality and relationships. She also has an adult talk show on French cable, and a current blog in French.
