Good Lords—you're how old?
18 December 2014 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

I'm at a house party—latter half of the 80s—wandering around looking for my drink when I spy something that stops me in my tracks: a video playing on TV shows a big-breasted blonde nurse with a bee-sting pout enthusiastically getting jiggy with a randy doctor. I forget all about my drink.

Asking around, I learn that the video is called 'Love Bites' and that the woman with the killer curves is Traci Lords, the No.1 US porn-star of the mid-eighties; what I don't discover till several years later is that the story behind Traci's adult movie career is almost as incredible as her insatiable libido and voluptuous physique.

X-Rated Ambition: The Traci Lords Story is a made-for-TV documentary that charts Traci's rise to success as a porn-star and tells of the shock revelation that brought the whole US adult movie industry to its knees: Traci was only 15 when she began her career! Through a series of interviews with key players of the Hollywood porn scene during the 80s—Ron Jeremy, Ginger Lynn, Peter North, Tom Byron, Nina Hartley—we learn the facts behind Traci's amazing rise and fall as a sex performer, how she duped everyone into believing she was twenty one when she was in fact under-age, how she demanded the highest wages, and how she was finally rumbled by the government, sending a shock-wave through the entire porn industry. We also get to see some non-explicit moments from some of her adult classics, including the rubber rat scene from Black Throat, a personal favourite of mine.

Sadly, without any input from the lady herself, we learn little about Traci's true nature except that she is a calculating, business-minded individual who used her body to catapult herself to fame. Well... that and the fact that she genuinely seemed to enjoy her 'work'.
