Porsche Lynn: The Other Side of Power (Part 2) – Podcast 107
Play

In part one of our podcast with Porsche Lynn, we heard how she survived childhood trauma, befriended Angel Kelly at modeling school, became a stripper at Michigan’s notorious Cinema X, and made her way to Los Angeles where she quickly became one of the most successful porn stars of her era.

In this second and final episode of her Rialto story, Porsche and I talk about how she founded the Pink Ladies – the first west coast support group for women in the adult industry – a collective that included Angel Kelly, Nina Hartley and Jeanna Fine – as well as Megan Leigh, who tragically went on to take her own life, leaving the club’s members devastated. We hear how Porsche helped bring American-style pornography to Europe and was one of the first from the industry to break in a young and eager Rocco Siffredi. Back in the States, she supported a new wave of interracial porn – falling for co-star Sean Michaels in the process – and the growing popularity of BDSM movies.

Strap yourself in to hear about all this and more – including a romantic Italian pitstop with middleweight boxing champion Marvelous Marvin Hagler.

This podcast is 81 minutes long.

      Great selection. The one starlet I’d like to be “brought up to date” on is Kristara Barrington. There’s no one else like her…

        Didn’t Kristara Barrington end up being a dentist? I wouldn’t be surprised if Rialto actually contacted some of those 80’s legends on my list but they declined to be interviewed? It’s pretty easy to look up Melissa Melendez, looks like she’s been married a couple of times. Hear Tamara was an artist back east? Gina Valentino is totally off the grid, can’t find her anywhere?

          I could be wrong, but I believe she used her earnings to go into veterinary medicine.

          • MJ Striker · July 3, 2021

            Yes, I was wrong, she’s not a dentist. Thank you -E- ! Now any idea what Kari Foxx is up to?

      I see my reply to Striker’s post was deleted. Did its removal have something to do with the actress in question?

      I’ve always wondered what became of Josephine Carrington.

    The section about Megan Leigh – and Porsche’s perspectives on industry suicides – is both moving and perceptive.

    Just like the handling of the murder/suicide of Porsche’s parents in the previous episode this was very sensitively handled.

    Can’t remember where, but I read a recent interview with Porsche in a book or fanzine in the last few years.
    Let’s just say this kicks that interview’s butt – big time. This is universes better.
    I love it this website

      Cinema Sewer? Don’t recall if Robin Bougie interviewed her but would not be surprised. RIP Cinema Sewer.

    Awesome rare interview Porsche Lynn she was amazing

    I’ve always loves Porsche. She was always so gracious when I visited shoots to do behind-the-scenes stories. Her candor is so refreshing. I remember when Megan Leigh took her life and Porsche was dancing at Show World at the time. Porsche orchestrated a NYC memorial for Megan atop Show World–the owner Richie let us use his rooftop terrace for it–and I wrote about it in AVN.

    Excellent series. Always loved Porche Lynn. Was great to hear about the European connection with Hans Moser and Teresa Orlowski, I had always wondered how those films came about. One observation though having read the article on Jutka. In Jutka’s interview she makes mention to a transsexual performer named Shannon having passed away. To my knowledge she is still alive and well and is known to Porche who may be able to clear this up?

    After some of the stuff she’s been through, it’s great to hear she’s doing so well.

    Absolutely Amazing! Wonderful job as always April. I could have listened to 20 more hours of her stories. So great to hear how happy she sounds.

    what a cool lady! great job as always.

    btw i’m a huge boxing/Marvin Hagler fan so sorry Porsche there’s NO WAY Hagler held back in that fight against Leonard – i think she said Hearns by mistake – cause he was worried about damaging his eye. i even think there’s an interview with him where he says “if Leonard’s stupid enough to fight me i’m stupid enough to blind him in that eye”
    or words to that effect. RIP Marvelous Marvin.

    Well that’s all Three Lynns in the RR podcast archive.
    Next up on Sunday 11/07 at 8pm BST it’s the turn of the Three Lions. I somehow suspect Ashley will be following this one?!
    Keep up the great work fellas (and of course ladies!)

      Certainly will… and sadly this weekend’s Rialto Report will be postponed as a result.

      However it’ll be coming home the following weekend…

    Wishful thinking back in old adult channel days of then European astra satellite.
