  • Susie Bright's Blog

    Here's a blog that gets me where I live...Much food for thought on a regular basis!

  • In the debauched world of INDIEROTICA, the thin bra-strap of a line between the seductive and the obscene is torn, stripped, and ripped off so often that one can have difficulty differentiating between the exploitative and truly erotic. Here to help us connect the dots is the brilliant and sexy REBECCA, author of the clever blog, PORN PERSPECTIVES. "Examining the interplay between pornography, feminism, economics, and technology", it's possibly the smartest sex on the internet.

Marilyn Chambers, 1952-2009

Marilyn Chambers, star of the '70s porn classic Behind the Green Door, passed away over the weekend in her home. She was 57 and died of unknown causes.


She got her start as the face of Ivory Soap (99 adn 44/100% pure!), and was later dropped after her porn debut. Even though the film showed at Cannes Film Festival and received remarkably positive reviews, I suppose Ivory decided the quintessential virgin/whore wasn't the optimal face of soap.

Ivory soap
I always admired Chambers for her smart business sense (she negotiated a hefty salary and a cut of the proceeds from Green Door) and her unrepentent attitude (she used her real first name, saying she was unashamed of what she did). I'm sorry her life came to a premature end.
