“In the ’70s and ’80s the NYC porn film business and “community” was very small by today’s standards. We knew most all of the “porn actors and actresses,” as we called them then. Some folks came through the biz and did one or two movies and got out. But the rest of us worked steadily over the years. We knew each other but had very different, disparate lives. I wasn’t close friends with any of the people in porn throughout the ’70s, until Club 90, really. I saw people at premieres and press screenings in the Film Building in Times Square, and ran into them at sex magazine offices. So when the ’80s porn actress and star Veronica Hart got pregnant, some of the women of porn got together for a baby shower. Veronica Hart’s friends, the Spoon Sisters, largely produced the event, which was so much fun. It was held at my apartment at Lexington and 27th Street, and it was the first time that I had gotten together with the women of porn when the porn guys, the fans and the paparazzi weren’t there. We had a beautiful day together.”
