Inside Linda Lovelace's Deep Throat
Degradation, Porno Chic, and the Rise of Feminisim
This is the untold story of the sex slave who was rented out by her husband, even for rape, to celebrities and high-rollers. Boldly told, it's all here, naming names with the first published exploration of the 1970s sex goddess who was transformed into a feminist icon of the 1980s. To this iconic and overheated saga, Blood Moon applies its award-winning formula to sex-industry players from the world of entertainment and politics.
The notorious Linda Lovelace was America's first Queen of Porn, presiding over a fast-developing multi-billion-dollar film industry during the decadent 1970s. Her movie, Deep Throat, redefined the nation's views on obscenity and was credited with changing America's sexual attitudes more than anything since the 1948 Kinsey Report. But at decade's end, Linda, in a complete about-face, emerged as one of the more compelling voices in the feminist movement, denouncing the degradations of her cinematic past.
