    Marilyn Chambers R.I.P

    Porn star Marilyn Chambers dead at 56

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Porn star Marilyn Chambers, who made waves in the 1970s by having screen sex with an African-American, has been found dead at her Los Angeles home at the age of 56, coroner's officials said on Monday.

    The Los Angeles coroner's office said an autopsy would be carried out to determine the cause of her death late on Sunday night.

    Chambers, whose real name was Marilyn Taylor, broke into the adult film industry by appearing in the 1972 film "Behind the Green Door," which was among the first pornographic films released widely in the United States to attract mainstream attention.

    The adult film caused a stir in part because Chambers was seen having sex with African-American porn star Johnny Keyes.

    Chambers made more than 25 porn movies, trading on her earlier role as the blonde cover girl on the Ivory Snow soap box, where she posed holding a baby under the tag line "99 & 44/100% pure".

    She also made several films with late porn star John Holmes, who died of AIDS complications in 1988, and she had flings with careers in music and politics. Chambers ran for U.S. vice president in 2004 on the Personal Choice Party ticket and released the disco single "Benihana" in 1976.

    Chambers had a bit part in the 1970 Barbra Streisand film "The Owl and the Pussycat," and starred in the 1977 David Cronenberg horror movie "Rabid." But after establishing herself as a pornographic film star, she was never able to break into mainstream films.

    Marilyn Chambers is a major reason why i discovered porn. I was going through my uncle's Playboy collection one time when i was a young teenager & there was a spread of her in one of the issues. One picture in particular caught my attention, where she was on her knees with the the lighting in the background. Very erotic!

    Insatiable was a classic, especially that pool table scene, which i've tried to recreate several times in my private life.

    I still remember the scene at the end of the movie when she takes John Holmes' 14-inch cock up her ass! Wow!!! What a feat!!!

    She was one of the pioneers of modern porn. Her first movie, Behind the Green Door, was an instant hit. Along with Deep Throat & Devil in Miss Jones, the movie brought porn into the mainstream. Resurrection of Eve was so-so. She actually was a decent 'straight' actress in David Cronenberg's "Rabid".

    The other day, i was surfing the torrent sights in order to maybe find the one Marilyn Chambers movie that i haven't seen yet, Up n' Coming. And now i found out she's dead.

    WOW! I was stunned when I saw this thread. She was a pioneer in adult films and actually was one of the very few porn actresses in the business. Very sad news, may she rest in peace.

    Doc, I have Up 'n Coming, you can download it from Pure TnA if you are a member or if you want I could set up an FTP server and you can download it from me. It's a DVD rip in DVD format, not Divx and it's about 4GB in size. Or let me know next time you are in town and I will burn you a copy.

    Sad news........she was so naturally sensual and erotic. I remember seeing Behind The Green Door on a big screen one steamy night in Hawaii..........even steamier after the show.........whew!

    Brooke Shields was 11 months old on the Ivory Snow box!

    So long to a legend!

    Yeah. Most of it wrong.

    "And to clear up another long-standing rumor, no, that baby on the Ivory Snow box isn't actress Brooke Shields. Brooke did appear in some Ivory Snow advertisements as an infant, but her picture was never used on the box."
    You are cordially invited to toss my salad. There's an app for that!

    Actually I remember Brooke saying it was her during an interview many years ago, pre-web, after it was published in a magazine, possibly Playboy. So if it isn't true, and I will not argue the point, maybe even she bought into the legend herself. The mention on Snopes really gives no evidence one way or the other and other sites I've checked link to Snopes as the source of the debunking.

    Oh well. Maybe we will never know the truth.

    Chambers' autopsy inconclusive

    LOS ANGELES - A Los Angeles County coroner official says an autopsy has failed to determine the cause of death for adult film star Marilyn Chambers.

    Los Angeles County coroner's Assistant Chief Ed Winter said Tuesday that 56-year-old Chambers probably died of natural causes, but additional testing will be required. Chambers was found dead Sunday at her home in the Los Angeles suburb of Canyon Country.

    I never saw that interview but Brooke Shields can't be the baby. Why? She was born in May 1965 so, when that publicity was made in early '70, she was already 5-6 years old!
