Golden Age Porn Walk Of Fame

Field review by the editors.

Los Angeles, California

With the passage of time, evidence of once-shocking institutions challenging a community's moral values occasionally become cherished landmarks. Whether it's a pioneer prostitute monument, or a brothel-turned-museum, it's all old-timey history, suitable for family vacations.

That may happen with the Golden Age Porn Walk of Fame in Hollywood, though it hasn't yet. The hardcore adult film industry flourished in the open from the late 1960s into the '80s, the period that these "sex goddesses and gods" were the big names. You'll find the cement signatures, handprints and footprints of pornographic actors and actresses: Linda Lovelace, Harry Reems, Marilyn Chambers and others (if you don't recognize the names, read their detailed wikipedia bios). Triple X films were distributed to adult theaters, places like the Pussycat Theater. It shot to national notoriety for showing Deep Throat thirteen times a day for ten years.

Porn has changed -- now it's just a search typo away. The Pussycat Theater is long gone, a "live" adult theater in its place. The Walk of Fame in front of the entrance is barely noticed. Most of the stars are dead, forgotten. But male visitors can still bravely compare their hand sizes with the impressions left by John Holmes (aka Johnny Wadd).
