Oh Lords

X-Rated Ambition: The Traci Lords Story is a British made television documentary hence why it could get away with showing nude images of Miss Lords when she was over 16 years of age because of then different censorship laws.

Made in anticipation of Traci Lords biography it tells her quick rise in the mid 1980s porn scene which soon came crashing down once it was found out that she was under 18 years of age for most of her porn career which caused problems for adult film companies and porn producers, especially the rumoured money men reputed to be the Mafiosi types.

The film does not feature any interviews from Traci, since her bad days she has actually found modest success in mainstream television and films, especially B movies.

It does feature interviews from veterans from the 1980s Hollywood porn scene such as Ron Jeremy, Tom Byron, Ginger Lynn, Peter North, Nina Hartley and Amber Lynn. I felt the interviews were rather catty and self serving. I guess a lot of them were not happy they were carted off by the FBI once they found she was under aged and also had scores to settle because Traci was reputed to be the highest paid performer in her heyday.

I felt the documentary went through a lot of lazy tropes of porn documentaries. I actually thought it was poorly made and researched. There was little here that I actually did not know about; the Traci Lords saga is well known even if you are not a porn aficionado. The lack of Traci Lords talking about her porn days is a glaring omission.
