Tonight on Playboy Radio: Ginger Lynn: The Movie (1988)

Tonight on Playboy Radio’s Nightcalls with Debi Diamond and guest host Kelly Shibari, we’ll be chatting about the 1988 (compilation) flick, Ginger Lynn: The Movie.  Due to a some scheduling on my end, we’ll be on 45 minutes earlier, at 7:00 PM Eastern (4:00 PM Pacific) as opposed to our regular time.

Compilation flick?  Wha?

Paradise Visuals was one of the leading adult studios in the mid-80s and they had a three-picture “deal” with Traci Lords.  (She appeared in three shot-on-video movies for them, plus a comp (Girls of Paradise) and they used a g/g scene of hers in Whore of the Worlds as well.)

Traci was arguably the biggest star at the time, but running a close second, if not arguably first, was Ginger Lynn.  So Paradise scored quite a coup when they were able to cast both Traci and Ginger in the same movies.  Having both of the biggest stars in the world in the movie was pretty much a license to print money.

Once Traci’s scandal broke, all those movies needed to be pulled from the shelves, so in 1986, we lost those three movies and the awesome scenes that didn’t feature Ms. Lords… and Paradise lost a cash machine.

Fast forward a couple years, and the good folks over at PV say “Hey, you know… if we edit the movies so Traci’s not in them, we don’t have much… but we can take the leftovers that feature Ginger and make a new movie!”  And that they did.

They took scenes from Those Young Girls (1984)Night Of Loving Dangerously (1984) and Lust in the Fast Lane (1984) and edited them together to make Ginger Lynn; The Movie.

This movie is also notable for giving us access to two AWESOME Christy Canyon scenes from her debut, which we would have lost to the (under)ages had they not been repackaged here.

The first three scenes are from “Those Young Girls.”  That movie was written by Ginger, and based on her experiences breaking into porn.  It’s a jokey script — she meets with agent John Holmes who asks if she has a portfolio, and she says she got her (immunization) shots in high school — but personality (and Ginger’s undeniable cuteness) goes a long way…

Things get underway with Ginger naked on John’s desk, fellating a banana and saying “lunch is served.”  He then dives in and eats.  (Who wouldn’t?!?)  Ginger bucks her hips and grinds into his face before dropping to her knees.  Seeing Holmes’ manhood fall out of his pants as he pulls down his jeans is still something to behold.  She laughs, not quite sure what to do with the turgid meat, and he guides her head in to do the job.  His cock is floppy, as it often was by this point in his career, but she manages to coax half a stiffy out of him. He lays her on the desk and drops his cock into her mouth as he fingers her.  It’s a pretty hot position and it shows off her body pretty well until he strokes a nice load onto her face which she cleans up like a champ.  They cuddle bit and then Ginger finds her way onto a set.

The stills guy (nice socks!) gets her acclimated, she takes off her robe revealing a pretty conservative negligee (by today’s standards, anyway).  The camera cuts to her close up, and she looks flawless.  It is not hard to believe what a star she was back then… so the second scene is just Ginger posing around a bed.

We cut back to John Holmes making a deal for Ginger to appear in a music video, as he has her under contract.

The next scene is a rather silly music video, with Harry Reems (who had to have been 40+ at the time) in silly “punk” makeup, along with Ginger with a fauxhawk and yellow lace gloves.  There’s a driving synth tune on the sound track, jump cuts and video transitions that were all the rage back then.  Since they’re both naked, I’m not sure what the market for this video was supposed to be… you can FF through it without missing too much except some prolonged tongue kissing which is then unceremoneously cut away from for a dialogue scene where he explains that its a bad idea for them to get together.

Cut to his bedroom, they’re drinking wine and trying to come up with a name, and they settle on Ginger Lynn, and she plants a big one on his lips, and then after some faint protest, she’s blowing him and he’s eating her out.  She crawls off his face and slides him up in her for some reverse cowgirl.  RC is perhaps my favorite porn position, as it really shows off the girl’s physique, and let’s her control the sex.  Ginger gyrates her hips around on his cock which is a wonderful visual.  Harry then throws her on her back, and starts a vigorous pounding before cycling thru two quick positions – side saddle then doggie, where he pulls out and cums (in ridiculous slo-mo) on her ass, finally wrapping her in a giant hug which carries a startling amount of warmth in it…

So ends our journey with Those Young Girls, and we move into Night of Loving Dangerously, with a poorly grayed Peter North driving in a car while a voice over (not Peter) establishes him as a producer out to meet Ginger… so we’ve moved from a strict comp to the thinnest of a new story.  Let’s see how they do.

(In this review of NOLD, The Fool sums up the plot thusly: “It’s a murder mystery story, where Christy Canyon, who appears in more than just sex scenes, is “Louise Harrison”, daughter of Chairman of the Board, Jamie GillisPeter North is a former cop and former husband of Traci Lords, and his ex-wife Traci calls him to investigate a blackmail plot against Louise’s father, Jamie Gillis, whom Traci is about to marry…”  How this will fit into “Ginger is an up and coming adult film star” story remains to be seen… we return to our story…)

Peter enters a house and asks if nayone is home.  Ginger and Christy are home, having a little fun of their own.  A brief g/g scene ensues with a lot of kissing and some scissoring.  We cut to Peter standing in the doorway, clapping, asking if they know “any more good tricks.”

Another mystery voiceover tells us that Ginger’s career was really taking off, as evidenced by the doggie style fucking Tom Byron is giving her.  At this point, we’re in our third movie, Lust in the Fast Lane, where we’ll stay for the next few scenes.

So Tom and Ginger are fucking, and then Tom pulls out and splashes on her ass and without explanation, Ginger is now sucking another cock, this time belonging to while Marc Wallice is working a finger up her ass.

When we open a wide shot, we see the room is full of people fucking, that there’s at least four pairings going on — Eric Edwards and Beverly BlissCrystal Breeze with Tom Byron (cocksucking, titfucking); Sheri St. Clair with  and Ginger with Marc Wallice and David Sanders (They spend a bit of time FUCKING HER ARMPITS. Seeing her with two cockheads poking out of her arms is not all that erotic, really… but they get point for being novel…)

(The scene is a horrible mess of editing. They end with each of the four corners of the frame filled with a different cumshot.  They finally break out for Marc dumping a giant load on Ginger’s face, but the scene is shot so close-up, there’s very little impact.  A horribly missed opportunity.)

The orgy continues a bit more with Beverly BlissCrystal Breeze and Sheri St. Clair working on Tom Byron. Beverly gives Tom a pretty awesome handjob, while Sheri pleasures Crystal.  Sheri was one of my favorite mid-80s performers.  Tom eventually lays Beverly down for a little buggering before he fucks Sheri St. Clair and cums virtually in her, pulling out at the last moment…

And then, LATER THAT NIGHT…

… so we end our time with Lust in the Fast Lane, and we wrap up with two scenes from Night of Loving Dangerously.

As an aside, NoLD is widely considered to be Christy’s debut.  She made some loops beforehand and did the modelling, but this was the movie that put her on the map… and soured her on facials forever.

The first has Ginger sucking Jamie Gillis’ cock and then Christy comes in for some loving.  Jamie fucks Christy while Ginger helps pleasure her with her fingers.  Then it’s Ginger’s turn to climb on top and they make one of my favorite porn positions – the triangle.  Ginger rides Jamie’s cock; Christy rides Jamie’s face and the girls kiss.  This is WAY TOO SHORT-LIVED before Ginger and Christy are 69ing, and Jamie is fucking Christy doggie. Jamie flips Ginger over and fucks her butt for a spell, first side saddle, then reverse cowgirl.  Then, as the moment of climax nears, he pushes Ginger onto her stomach, pulls out and starts jerking off while Christy is hovering over the small of Ginger’s back shooting glances off-camera and flinching every time Ginger bucks her hips.  It’s a pretty natural reaction, far from the pro that Christy matured into. Finally he starts cumming and Christy’s brought into the line of fire.  It’s pretty obvious she’s not into it, but she’s being a spot, glancing off camera for what seems to be a combination of “Help?” and “I’m a team player!”  It’s a little unsettling knowing the story behind it, but before I knew the story it was hot.

We spoke about this incident on the show back in January while we were discussing Black Throat.  Christy was not expecting Jamie to pull out of Ginger and shove his cum at her face, but that’s what he did, and it ruined her off facials for most of her career.

“… and right after high school, and no one ever came in my mouth. So suddenly, there I am at 18 and 3 months old, and some guy — Jamie Gillis – pulls out of Ginger’s ass, open like  ‘Christy, open your mouth, open your mouth!’ and I open my mouth, not even knowing, really, what was happening, but it was kind of fun up until then… and then this whole load just shoots in my mouth, and I just remember it was bitter and it smelled like Clorox Bleach, it was wrong and nasty, and they’re like FILMING IT! all of a sudden, I thought I was going to throw up… the smell was 10 times worse than my spray tan the other day; the stench was like acid… but that one first mouth loud wasn’t very good at all, and it kind of turned me off.”

So there’s that.

Finally, the last scene of the movie is a classic.  Ginger approaches Peter, “Hello, Mr. Shannon.”  He replies, “Hello (audio muted)” (Her name was “Louise” in NoLD, but “Ginger” in our story here, so we’ll get around it by introducing an audio drop out.  In the filmmakers’ defense, they could have left “Louise” in, but they were trying to tell a new story clearly, so they didn’t want to confuse things.) She asks if he’s hungry and he says he can handle a “bite or two” — of her hair pie!

And they go to town on a poolside lounge chair.  He eats her for a little bit, then she returns the favor, really showing off her cocksucking talents.  Then — awkward! – Christy stumbles upon the scene, and to avoid anything weird, she jumps out of her dress and starts sucking his cock instead.  The two girls then spend some time sharing Peter’s peter orally until Peter pulls Christy up to him to make out a little and give her massive boobs a massage.  He then lies her on the chair and lays her while Ginger stand by waiting for their position to change to doggie, so she could make love to Christy’s chest as they sway to and fro.  Finally, Peterpulls out of Christy and Ginger jerks him off onto Christy’s ass, lapping up all of his baby batter (TM Rog).

The final title card:

THE END

but for Ginger, it was just the beginning…

A worthwhile movie to see some classic Ginger Lynn action.  Well worth checking out.

Tonight on Playboy Radio: Talk Dirty To Me (1979)

Tonight on Playboy Radio Nightcalls with Debi Diamond and  Nicki Hunter (Sirius XM 102, 7:45pm Eastern)  we’re going to be talking about Anthony Spinelli‘s 1979 classic, Talk Dirty to Me.

We’ve talked about Talk Dirty to Me 2, but not the original, so let’s have at it.

We first meet smooth-talker Jack (John Leslie) and his slow-witted sidekick Lenny (Richard Pacheco) at the beach as they watch hang gliders under the opening credits.  (Fun trivia, editor Tim McDonald  would later direct Talk Dirty to Me 2.) Jack and Lenny go get some coffee and Cracker Jacks from a truck run by Herbie (Anthony Spinelli) and Patty (Holly McCall).  Holly gets all up in Jack’s grill, asking him when they can get together again and he says she needs to exercise a little more.  Lenny chimes in and says that Jack promised that Lenny could fuck her, but that really sets her off and she pushes Lenny down a sand dune.  The overly protective side of Jack comes out, physically shoving Patty aside to get to Lenny’s aid.  He brings Lenny to a doctor.

Cut to the doctor’s office, and the doctor (Cris Cassidy) is filling out some paperwork. She explains that Lenny’s leg isn’t broken, just sprained.  Jack then gets right in with the dirty talk. “You’re a damned good looking woman, you know that? … I wouldn’t pay you shit, but I bet some heavy dude would pay big bucks to get into your pants.  Big bucks…”  He gets in close, smells her up … She retorts “I want you to know you’re not impressing me with your hot mouth!”  and so it goes — he asks to suck on her tits (she pulls her blouse shut) and he leans in, and she gets all upset and he really turns on the charm and whips his cock out right there.  “My cock wants you.  Look!  Give it a little touch.. please?” and she’s on the hook.  Jack tells her to get to his apartment after her last patient and he goes in the back to get Lenny.

Lenny is worried that the coffee-truck girl doesn’t like him, but Jack assures him she does.  The doctor returns and tells Jack she can’t make it later, and Jack tells Lenny to go wait in the car.  Lenny puts up a faint protest, and Jack ravages the doctor.  He pulls her hair out of its bun, and she drops to her knees and inhales his dick.  He leans her back on a couch and eats her out for a while (big bush alert!) before fucking her missionary.  He pulls out and cums on her face.

A quick note on the women, none of them are really HAWT by today’s standards, but that doesn’t make them any less sexually arousing.  They’re attractive, but not stunningly so.  They actually seem like women you’d see on the street.

We then meet Jesie St. James who is helping her husband, Frank (Aaron Stuart), pack for a business trip. She comes into the room in a thin nightgown, poses in the doorway and quotes “To Have and Have Not” (“put your lips together and blow…“)  She then tells him they have an hour to spare before his trip, and she wants some.  She tells him what to do, and he’s resistant with her choice of language.  “I love your breasts” he says.  “Can’t you say tits?  Call them tits!  Say you want to suck my tits!  Say you want to suck my pussy!  Goddamn it, Frank!  I want to hear it.  I need to hear it!” he says he loves her, but he just can’t do it.  So she blows him anyway.

A quick note on Frank.  Frank is not HAWT by any standard, but he is absolutely the correct look for the businessman husband who has fallen into a rut and would make his wife wander.  He’s physically fine, good cock, not fat, but he’s got a pronounced receding hairline…

Jesie looks older than she is – she was only 25 when she made this, but looks early 30s.   She’s got some serious tan lines, and really gets into the fucking.  Frank throws a vigorous hump into her, and she squeals and bucks around until he cums on her ass.

Back on the beach, Lenny is girl watching and hands Jack the binoculars and has him look at Jesie who is strolling down the beach.  Jack says he can “fuck her to death” in three days, and the game is afoot.

They boys follow her to a movie theatre, and Jack strikes up a conversation about classic 1941 movies.  She’s cool to his conversation; he complains about ticket prices ($5.00!) and gas ($2!) and parking ($5!) and she leaves.  The boys follow her home and they find the house next door is empty and up for sale, so they squat in it to stay close… and so they can spy on her prancing around her room in her bra and panties.

The next day, Jack shows up at her house, offering his handyman services.  She’s skeptical enough of the coincidence to give him a series of fake names (Mrs. Miniver, Mrs. Dietrich) and they discuss Casablanca, and he’s got himself a job cleaning the house.

Cut to Aunt Peg as a realtor and and Carl Regal as her client, and she tries to make the sale by licking her fingers, running them across his lips and then across her pussy lips.  The client freaks out and gets out of there.  Jack is watching from the second floor and tells her blew the sale, and she’s taken aback that he’s squatting.  He tells her to not cover up as he likes a nasty pussy.  She says she’ll call the cops, and he says if she does, he’ll “rape the shit out of her.”  He puts his hands on her shoulders and slowly pushes her to her knees.  He kneels too and gives her a kiss.  The opens her blouse and she’s ready to play. She tells him what to do, and they get right down to fucking on the landing. As Jack fucks her, we see Lenny watching from the second floor, and we’re not sure how he feels about it.  Aunt Peg tells Jack not to come inside her, as she wants to suck him to climax, and she goes absolutely crazy sucking his cock until he cums all over her tongue.  She laughs and grins through the whole thing, which might be the sexiest part.    She continues to flick the head of his cock with her tongue, causing Jack to fall apart in laughter.  Lenny looks forlorn and leaves.  She tells Jack that he needs to be out of the house by Friday.

Jack does some shirtless work in the yard which drives Jesie crazy.  They talk more about movies as she dips her legs in the pool, and after work, she gets him a beer.  He asks to use her phone — “Do you have a date?”  she asks “Something like that.” — and he calls Rose (Sharon Kane) and talks dirty to her on the phone as Jesie listens in on the extension. (Try doing that with a cel phone!)  Jesie ends up in the shower touching herself a little, thinking about what she overheard.

Lenny comes upstairs with Rose and Jill (Dorothy Lemay) who are looking for some fun.  Jill would really like to get it on with Jack, but Rose won’t let her.  When Lenny says they’re out of beer, he and Jack run off, leaving the girls to groom their pubic patches (seriously).

When Jack gets back, he brings Rose into Jesie’s house and they fuck doggie style outside her bedroom door as she sleeps.  Couple funny bits as Jack pulls Rose’s hair, she swats him away and as she’s cumming, Jack has her bite/suck on his finger to keep her from waking up Jesie.  It’s a pretty hot scene as they try to keep quite while fucking like bunnies.

Jesie’s sex dreams are driving her crazy and she fires Jack in the morning. He lays some more dirty talk on her and she asks him “Is that the only way you know how to talk?  Dirty?”  “To you,” he says with a devilish grin and she runs back into the house.

He follows her into her room, comes up behind her and says “You know, there’s 13 places a man should kiss?” and as he runs down the list, she melts like butter.

Meanwhile, Rose is with Lenny in some room decorated with Raggedy Ann dolls all over the walls.  She’s pissed that Jack is “probably getting laid right now… and he won’t even give me the signal!”  Lenny sticks up for his friend saying “igf Jack said he’ll give you a signal, he’ll give you a signal.”  “You really trust him?” she says. “You bet!”

Back in Jesie’s room, Jack strips naked and lies on the bed.  She asks “Will you speak dirty to me, like you did to that girl on the phone?” and she gets undressed.  She gets on the bed and starts wriggling like a spider dropped on a hot frying pan.  She asks Jack to do the things she asked Frank to do, and he complies.  He’s more than happy to eat her pussy, and tell her about it as he does it.

Back with Lenny and Rose, she notes that he’s been wearing the same shirt for two weeks and helps him out of it.  She asks him if he’s ever been kissed, and he says “A little bit” and then she asks “Would you like me to kiss you right now?” and he nods.  The sweet kiss is defanged by an odd intercut of Jack nose deep in pubic hair.

Then Rose tells Lenny how to eat her pussy and we get cross cutting between the two meals.

Jack crawls up her body and thrusts his cock in her mouth, “do you want me to fuck your mouth?  Say so!  Say it!”  “I want you to fuck my mouth!

In the other room, there’s no talking going on; ; just Rose gently working on Lenny’s cock.

Finally, both couples start fucking in missionary — Jack and Jesie loud and vocal, Lenny and Rose very quiet and tender until finally, Lenny cums inside Rose and Jack thrusts out and does the patented John Leslie No Hands Cumshot ™ on Jesie’s belly.

Lenny asks Rose if he made her happy, and when she says yes, he starts excitedly bouncing up and down on her like a little kid.

YogaGirl describes the last scenes as:

Jesie wakes up in a foul mood the next morning, but John seduces her via the “13 places a man should kiss when he makes love to a woman.” They tease each other with racy language and roughhouse passionately in her bed. John dives into the oral with boyish enthusiasm and then happily fucks her mouth when she requests it. John makes Jesie scream with pleasure by pumping her hard and fast in missionary. He slides his cock along the crease between her abdomen and thigh as he creams. This entire scene is intercut with footage of Richard losing his virginity to Sharon. Some viewers dislike intercut footage, but in this case, the contrast between John and Richard’s experiences is essential to the story. Sharon first coaxes Richard to explore her pussy with his tongue and then caresses his cock in her mouth. He enters her shyly in missionary, constantly kissing her while he finds his rhythm. There’s no cumshot, yet Richard’s orgasm is surprisingly convincing. The eroticism lies in their realistic facial expressions and his tender query, “Did that make you happy?”

Afterwards, Jack is dressed and says “Here’s looking at you, kid” while a ragtime variation of As Time Goes By plays on the soundtrack, and he’s gone, leaving her to ponder the events of the last three days.

And there you have it.  A classic from the word go, and deservedly so… tho I really wish Dorothy LeMay did more than walk around pantless and brush her pubic hair.

The movie is at a much slower pace than today’s porn.  I think it’s erotic as opposed to pornographic.  Scenes are shorter since it was expected you’d be watching in a theatre, and a 35 minute scene doesn’t play well in a theatrical setting.  (It plays great at home, because through the magic of the FF button, you can make it into a 10 minute scene.)

 Imperator makes an excellent point in his review of the movie:

And John Leslie is pretty damn effective. He’s so seductive he almost charmed the pants off me :-). Jessie is a damn fine actress too and perfectly manages the rather difficult task of showing the gradual yielding to his charms. Many on-screen seductions -and that holds for mainstream too- are botched by what I call the “activation energy effect”. The lady is stone cold, no matter what the fella does and then, all of a sudden, she just becomes putty. Bull, I say. Women are people (though IMHO a different species of the genus homo:-)), and people don’t behave like that. Read Christopher Hampton’s exquisite theatrical adaptation of Laclos’ “Les Liaisons Dangereuses” for a well-made seduction, and the pathetic melting of Turandot in Puccini’s otherwise brilliant opera to see how it should NOT be done. Da Ponte’s Don Giovanni lies somewhere in between I think.

[…]

The Imperial verdict. You saw it coming. Flawless. Riveting and erotic, Spinelli’s masterpiece can justly breathe along with its “Sex World” brethren that rarefied air of perfection.

CJ Lines sums up the movie thusly:

The film overall has it’s flaws, no doubt, and the plot falls apart a little in the last few minutes, but it’s got a wonderful Summery vibe, some smooth, laid-back humour, excellent acting, hot sex and a sense of real enjoyment flowing through it, all of which helps elevate it to the status of a genuine XXX legend.

And be on the look out for John Leslie’s Jimmy Stewart impression… pretty great stuff!

Here’s the opening credit sequence with the hang-gliders.  According to the YouTube description: “An adult film company came to Fort Funston in 1980 to shoot their opening sequence. They filmed Dan Racanelli and Tom Low flying state-of-the-art gliders. Unfortunately, neither of the pilots were asked for further involvement in the film. ;-)”

 

Lemme ask you a question…

So, we’ve been threatening to track webscenes for a while now, so we’re getting ready to share the fruits of our labors, but there has been some discussion among the editors about how to best present this information, so we decided to ask you for your thoughts.

So, a one-question SurveyMonkey pop up will randomly show up when you’re looking at a performer’s page, and we ask that you take half a second to answer the question as it would help us out quite a bit.

[UPDATE: The survey is closed. Thanks to the 1500 folks who took the time to respond. Here’s how it worked out…]

 

So, be on the lookout for some differently colored entries in your favorite performer’s filmographies in the weeks and months ahead!

Some site glitches…

Our banner server failed yesterday.  I was out of town and when I checked on the box earlier this morning, I was hoping a reboot would take care of it, but it seems that there’s a hardware failure and I’m waiting on a part that should be delivered tomorrow.

In addition to running the banner software, the server also:

  • runs a whole bunch of scheduled tasks (new moviesupdated movies, those born today, etc.)
  • runs the chat software
  • serves our banners

So, no banners for a day or so.  Ditto, if you use the AdultDVDTalk chat room, it’s going to be out of commission for a bit.  The scheduled tasks have been ported over to another machine, so they should be updating as expected.

We regret any inconvenience.

Today on Spice Radio: Sex Circus

Due to my travel schedule, I can’t be on Night Calls this week, so instead I’m stopping by Sex Circus with Christy Canyon and Ginger Lynn (be still my heart!) on SiriusXM Spice Radio 103 at around 12:40 Pacific Time. We’ll be doing a Legends of Porn trivia game — play along!

A taste:
