‘Porn Stars’ in 1983: <br />An Issue by Issue Guide

1983 was the last year in which the east coast publication ‘Porn Stars’ was published. The last issue was in September 1983, followed by a ‘Best Of’ edition in November 1983.

The final year’s issues include interviews with Serena, Veronica Hart and Lisa De Leeuw, features on films such as Consenting Adults, Puss ‘n Boots and Mascara, and pictorals with Vanessa Del RioShauna Grant, Candy Samples, and much more.

‘Porn Stars’ first appeared in mid 1980. It only lasted for four issues before undergoing a name change and becoming ‘Skin Flicks’. ‘Skin Flicks’ was even more short-lived and lasted only two months before it was renamed ‘Starlet.’ ‘Starlet’ lasted for four issues, before reverting to the magazine’s original name, ‘Porn Stars’, once again.

The Rialto Report previously profiled the early years of the magazine through the memories of two of the magazine’s editors, Richard Milner and Manny Neuhaus.

By the time ‘Porn Stars’ ceased publication, it was an established name on the newsstands, and one of the best magazines covering the adult film scene. The crew behind the scenes consisted of many familiar faces from another legendary sex publication, Al Goldstein’s Screw magazine, including Art Director, Yossarian, and Contributing Editors, Richard Jaccoma and Norman Jackson.

‘Porn Stars’: The Complete 1983 Issues

‘Porn Stars’ first appeared in mid 1980. It only lasted for four issues before undergoing a name change and becoming ‘Skin Flicks’. ‘Skin Flicks’ was even more short-lived and lasted only two months before it was renamed ‘Starlet.’ ‘Starlet’ lasted for four issues, before reverting to the magazine’s original name, ‘Porn Stars’, once again.

The full story of the early years is told through the memories of those who were responsible for the magazine in an earlier feature in The Rialto Report – two of the magazine’s editors, Richard Milner and Manny Neuhaus.

By 1982, ‘Porn Stars’ was an established name on the newsstands, and one of the best magazines covering the adult film scene. The crew behind the scenes consisted of many familiar faces from another legendary sex publication, Al Goldstein’s Screw magazine, including Art Director, Yossarian, and Contributing Editors, Richard Jaccoma and Norman Jackson.

    To have the complete series of Porn Stars digitized is amazing. Searchable too…
    Question: is there any way I can search across all issues that you’ve digitized for a particular search term?

    Thank you all for everything you’ve done. Nothing else comes close in terms of high quality content regarding a particular genre of film.

    The library is *the* go-to place for me to research my post-grad thesis. I am forever indebted to you.

    Good interview on my late friend JULIET ‘AUNT PEG’ ANDERSON in the May 1983 issue… she was on top-of-her-game back then.

    Along with the magazine interview are the numerous phone-sex classifieds, and Juliet is one of those you could call back then. She told me that phone sex was very lucrative for her, and she genuinely got off on it just like her clients.

    RIALTOREPORT continue to do great work with the digitizing of these old porn mags, I just hope that maybe they’ll give Juliet the attention she deserves with her own salute through those that knew her.

    Stay SANE in this PANICdemic… Take a porn shot every day!
