Ask anybody perverted (closeted or outed) over fifty if they know the name Vanessa Del Rio, and watch their eyes glaze over for a bit. Maybe they’ll shrug it off and tell you no, but maybe they’ll tell you about the old days of porn – before plastic surgery and the AIDS epidemic, and DVDs and BitTorrent. In the heady sexual revolution of the 1970s, Vanessa Del Rio was one of the queens of the burgeoning porn scene, and in Vanessa Del Rio: Fifty Years of Slightly Slutty Behavior Vanessa tells her story with alarming frankness to Dian Hanson.
It was a different time, when porn was still culturally reprehensible and borderline illegal, so this memoir is a remarkable look at a remarkable woman who captured the minds of a generation. Available for a limited time directly through publisher Taschen Books.
