The Greatest Porn Star of All

It’s a natural reaction to rate the people you grew up with as the best at what they did.  I grew up in the 70’s, so I’m partial to the movies of the decade being the best.  I would argue that Major League Baseball was never better than this decade.  And where I’m absolutely sure in my belief is that the greatest porn star of all-time came out of the 70’s .  Her name was Marilyn Chambers and she has never been matched.

Marilyn was the first adult film star that mixed acting chops with good looks.  She was articulate in interviews and had natural charisma.  Even more important than these things, though, was the way she seemed to love to have sex in front of the camera.  She had a raw sexuality that made every scene she did come off completely believable.

You’ve heard the phrase she sucks dick like a champ.  Well, Marilyn Chambers was the marilynchambers_yopbovzg7pv_12372392661undisputed champion at this craft.  No matter if it was lesbian play or anal intrusion, Marilyn always seemed insatiable, no matter what sexual act was involved.

Besides some pictures I saw of Chambers in some porn mags that I had found in the ditch coming home from my paper route, I didn’t get a chance to really enjoy her charms until 1984.  This was the year that Michael Jackson, Prince, and Bruce Springsteen ruled the charts, but I will always remember it for being the year that I became 18 and could go to the local XXX theater.

These were the days before the internet and no video stores in Iowa would rent these movies, so it was off to the local porn theater to get your Pee Wee on.  The first movie I ever saw at the 1536 theater was titled Up ‘N’ Coming.  This film featured Chambers singing some really bad country music (this was one of the last porn flicks that had some artistic ambitions), but the best parts were her steamy sex scenes.  An added element to the festivities was that in the middle of the flick, the projector stopped and some stripper came out and completely exposed herself.  It was the first time I had seen a hey nonny nonny in person (I was a late bloomer), so the whole night was completely fucking magical.

For anyone who thinks that Jenna Jameson is the greatest porn star of all-time, I suggest they watch Insatiable or Marilyn Chambers’ Private Fantasies.  Chambers was an actress who brought real intensity and acting talent to every scene she did.  If you are someone who has only seen her late-night Skinemax movies, I suggest you check out her earlier hardcore work.  It’s the difference between watching John McEnroe on the Legends tour versus when he was in his prime.
