John Leslie R.I.P.
Former porn star John Leslie has died at the age of 65 after reportedly suffering a heart attack.
The actor and director passed away last Sunday at his home in Mill Valley, California, according to his pal Mark Kernes, editor of adult film magazine AVN.
Leslie, real name John Nuzzo, began his career in the pornography industry in the 1970s and starred in explicit films including Cry for Cindy and Talk Dirty to Me, which catapulted him to fame in 1980.
He became one of the first adult actors to make the transition into directing, according to Kernes, and landed numerous awards for his work, including an induction into the Legends of Erotica Hall of Fame in Las Vegas.
Leslie is survived by Kathleen, his wife of 23 years.
Wow, another legendary porn star passes away, watched many of his movies, RIP.

Watched many of his movies? Tell me about it. I acted alongside him in a few of his movies! Another vintage porn legends passes on, but we still have the likes of Joey Silvera, Ron Jeremy, Herschel Savage & Ron Jeremy still among us.

you know that ERICA died too in 1999 !
Erica Boyer appeared in 184 features after starting her porn career with "Cowgirls in Chains." She came out of retirement to work with Marilyn Chambers in the XXX "Dark Chambers."
She died in a traffic accident on New Year's Eve at the age of 53. At the time she was married and had a son.
She is reported to have died instantly when her car was struck by an off-duty Florida Highway Patrol officer driving a 2001 4-door Hyundai.
She died in 2009 and not 1999.

It seems that there people in this profession die young, traffic accidents, sudden unexplained deaths, sudden rapid health problems. Their lives seem to be more tragic than the usual population.
every one should watch this
Just like professional wrestling?

Take a hockey players like John Kordic & Bryan Fogerty, who lived & partied hard...eventually, their hearts just gave out. Other former NHL players who were known to live & party hard looked like they were in their fifties while barely being over 30. Sure, some of it is genetics. But a lot of it is also on how you take care of yourself.
If you treat your body & your health like crap.....you'll pay the price later. A lot of times, it's sooner than later. As the ol' saying goes, "You are what you eat"...or...."You are how you live."
(I shouldn't talk, since many of the health problems i've have over the past few years can probably be attributed to my hard lifestyle & poor eating habits over the past decades.....i've only got myself to blame)

They pay a price for the fame and glory not knowing that not everyday will be a $10,000 pay day. Back in the early days of porn these big name porn stars were getting $200,000 a film. Now porn stars are a dime a dozen.
Come now......they might have made $200 000 'a year', but not 'per film'. But i will agree that they were being paid more than they are today, but that is simply because the supply has greatly outweighed the demand when it comes to 'talent'.

These days, all of them are being paid 'peanuts' for the most part, which is one of the reasons why we see so many former pornstars entering the escort business. There's more money to be made escorting than there is performing in front of the camera & as strippers. Times have changed.
