Mini Bio (1)

Janine Lindemulder did not begin her film career in adult videos. With her gorgeous yet teenage girlish looks and incredible body, she had begun appearing in "mainstream" films in the 1980s, though in typical "blonde bimbo" roles. Among the few "mainstream" movies to her credit is Lauderdale (1989), but the films were received so poorly, however, and her performances were considered so bland that her mainstream career basically went nowhere. She began her "adult" career in a low-budget soft-porn (although it was made by a director of hardcore porn films and had several adult-film performers in the cast) women-in-prison extravaganza called Caged Fury (1990), which featured well-known non-adult actor Erik Estrada. Having made an impression, Janine's career in the adult industry had begun. She performed in a few lesser-known films in 1990, performing sexually with male co-stars exclusively. It was during this very short period in her adult film career that her son, Tyler, was conceived. Realizing that his conception was the result of unprotected sex with male co-stars, Janine officially refused to work with men any longer. She interrupted her career during her pregnancy, but after the birth of her son she returned to the adult industry with a bang and a new condition--she would perform only with women. Her career took off, and she appeared in many popular adult films, such as the "Where the Boys Aren't" series and she had one of her most highly regarded (by her fans) roles in Blondage (1994). She is a legendary figure in the adult film industry--with hundreds of scenes performed exclusively with other women, Janine is the literal poster-girl for girl/girl adult films. There are many fan clubs (male and female alike) that celebrate her choice to work with other women and her delightful, upbeat personality. Although she retired from the adult industry in 2000 in terms of performing (much to the regret of her legions of fans), she remains as a director/producer, and is one of the most famous and recognizable figures in the history of porn, right up there with Ron Jeremy, Peter North, and her "disciple", Jenna Jameson. The few scenes she filmed with male co-stars early in her adult career are widely sought after and extremely difficult to come by.

Personal Quotes (5)

I had heard that many women in this business come from abusive childhoods which I think is a real shame. I had a really normal childhood, with one sister who is a year younger than me and we always did stuff together. I have no brothers. I did all of the normal things you do while growing up - I was always on a softball team, my Dad was the coach, my Mom was the manager and I won four scholarships for softball. Of course there were some problems, every family is dysfunctional, but I only have happy memories.
I wasn't thrilled with "legitimate movies". I didn't care for the people. They were shallow and didn't care about people's feelings.
I went in to Vivid in '93 knowing exactly what I was willing to do and I never faltered from that. I said, this is it, take it or leave it. They would joke around from time to time, but it was never up for negotiation. I wasn't trying to be a hard-ass, but I was clear that I didn't want people trying to persuade me into something I wasn't ready to do. They always knew that when I was ready I would come to them and that is exactly what I did.
[on her decision to begin working with men] At the time I was coming back into the industry and I knew that I was bored . . . No, bored is a bad word, there is nothing boring about having sex with gorgeous women. I knew that I wanted something more, though. The whole time that I was working with women only I would take a peek at a boy/girl scene and think, "Damn, that looks like fun."
Favorite girls? The first name that comes to mind is Jill Kelly. She has always been at the top of my list. I have always felt that we really connected in our scenes. I just finished Janine Loves Jenna (2007) this year and Jenna is amazing. I can see why she is the queen. She exudes so much. She is smart and sexual. She has the entire package. Jenna and Jill are the no-brainers for me, but there have been so many girls in this business.
