Did You Know?


Star Linda Lovelace later distanced herself from the movie. She claimed in her autobiography that Chuck Traynor, her then-husband, coerced her into participating. She said he would often persuade her to engage in sexual acts in front of the camera, and later prostituted her under threat of guns and violence. Several people confirmed that Traynor was controlling and abusive on set, and Traynor himself admitted it. See more »


Wilbur Wang: [on the telephone with Dr. Young] You gotta help me. I'm in love with Linda. We want to get married... thank you. There's only one problem - she needs a nine inch cock.

Alternate Versions

Several openings to the film exist. The original opens with a text prologue referencing Freud and cuts to the familiar opening credits of Lovelace driving around Florida with the commonly known opening theme. The Arrow home video version cuts this opening and begins with the first shot of Linda in the car. Another version of the opening starts with the car shot but with a completely different interlude in the background. The Italian version retains the Freud opening with Italian text and has the opening titles, including Italian dubbing production credits, with the familiar opening music with Italian titles over still shots of Lovelace.

User Reviews

This film is fantastic, One of the best pornos ever
15 May 2000 | by Mykii Suicide PBFSee all my reviews

I just saw an uncut xxx version of this movie and it is one of the funniest films i have ever seen.

I love the line about "Do you mind if I smoke while you eat?" and the scene when Ms Lovelace finds out about her unique organs!.

A lot of reviews have said that this film is tame but they must have seen cut versions because the version I watched was real sex and very strong.

Brilliant movie

see it as soon as possible and if you can get the XXX uncut version!
