Sex Fact #43

Traci Lords, star of 'Blade' and the John Waters' films 'Cry Baby' and 'Serial Mom' was 15 when she entered the porn industry appearing in 100 films before she was 18. Though she claims in her autobiography that 79 of those films were made of left over footage from 21 shoots.

More: Traci Lords was born Nora Louise Kuzma. Her stage name is said to be in tribute to Katherine Hepburn's character from The Philadelphia Story. She was raped at the age of 10 by a 16-year-old. At 12, she fled from her abusive alcoholic father with her mother and three sisters. Her mother's new boyfriend, Roger, was a cocaine dealer who molested her.

At the age of 15, she was living with her mother's ex-boyfriend, Roger (the same one who loested her). Posing as her stepfather, he helped her respond to classified ads requesting models. Using a fake ID provided by Roger that stated she was 20 rather than 15, she started in the porn industry.

In May 1986, authorities discovered she had been underage while making pornographic movies and arrested her, as well as the owners of her movie agency and X-Citement Video Inc. The ensuing prosecution against the agencies cost the pornographic film and distribution industry millions of dollars, as they were obliged by law to remove hundreds of thousands of her videotapes, films and magazines from store shelves to avoid the risk of prosecution for trafficking in child pornography.
