Legends of Erotica Class of 2008

"There is no future if in the present we fail to pay homage to the past."

And so it will be once again at Showgirl Video (631 South Las Vegas Blvd.) on Friday evening, January 11, that six Adult Entertainment Industry luminaries will be inducted into XXX’s most respected and discriminating (in choosing and limiting its number of inductees each year since its inception in 1994) Hall of Fame.

Although other groups including the X-Rated Film Critics (XRCO), and maybe even Adult Video News (AVN) started out with the good intentions of "less is more" when it came to filling their Halls of Fame with the truly deserving, they have both fallen into the "more is less" trap, and have taken to haphazardly "honoring" many who were, are, and never will be worthy of belonging to any kind of Hall…except possibly the one of Lame.

But that’s a problem best left for those groups, and each new batch of instant experts and prattling pinheads who come along armed with ignorance and the lack of historical insight to contend with when it comes to selecting "inductees" of merit. However, a nod of appreciation toward at least their "limiting access" policy must be made toward those in charge of the Walk of Fame at the Hustler Store in West Hollywood, because only two people are honored at a time, and to date…less two dozen "stars"(with only a few being suspect) adorn the area outside the erotic emporium.

The Class of 2008 will enrich the Legends of Erotica on Friday, January 11---and that group will include the lusty likes of Brittany Andrews, Debi Diamond, Ron Jeremy, Midori, Mimi Miyagi and Kitten Natividad (whose pictures "hotlight" this page).

For the record, including the anxiously looked forward to sextet listed above, since the Class of 1994---only a total of 75 actresses, actors, directors, and a few very important personalities (including legendary talent agents "Reb" Sawitz and Jim South, photographer Justice Howard, and historian Jim Holliday) have been given the opportunity to plant various body parts in the blocks of cement that grace the interior of Showgirl. Included among the 75 are Linda Lovelace, Rene Bond and John C. Holmes---all of whom were regretfully inducted posthumously. Lisa DeLeeuw, Shauna Grant and Savannah will also be accorded posthumous inductions within the next few years.

For the record… here is the complete roster of the Legends of Erotica (listed alphabetically/year-by-year):

1994---Veronica Hart, Nina Hartley, Hyapathia Lee, Porsche Lynn and Miss Sharon Mitchell.

1995---Annette Haven, Kay Parker and Seka.

1996---Juliet Anderson, Bunny Bleu, Vanessa Del Rio and Kelly Nichols.

1997---Christy Canyon, Marilyn Chambers, John C. Holmes, Shanna McCullough and Jeanne Pepper.

1998---Erica Boyer, Jeanna Fine and William Margold.

1999--- Bionca, Jamie Gillis, Gloria Leonard, Candida Royalle and Annie Sprinkle.

2000---Rene Bond, Ginger Lynn, Britt Morgan, Joey Silvera and John Stagliano.

2001---Keisha, John Leslie, "Reb" Sawitz and Teri Weigel.

2002--- Justice Howard, Sharon Kane, Amber Lynn, Tori Welles and Randy West.

2003---Lee Caroll, Eric Edwards, Jim Holliday, Linda Lovelace, Ed Powers, Selena Steele and Angela Summers.

2004---T.T. Boy, Victoria Paris, Rhonda Jo Petty, Alicia Rio and Jim South

2005---Angel Kelly, Johnnie Keyes, Shayla Leveaux, Lynn Lemay, Mai Lin and Henri Pachard.

2006---Fred Lincoln, Cara Lott, Jody Maxwell, Tiffany Mynx, Georgina Spelvin and Paul Thomas.

2007---Sean Michaels, Minka, Ruby, Herschel Savage, Serena and Taylor Wane.

And in the very near future… such justifiably deserving sex screen super stars as Tom Byron, Felicia, Kylie Ireland, Jill Kelly, Mr. Marcus, Peter North and Shane will be called upon to take their rightful places among the Legends of Erotica.

For further details…contact (818) 501-6139…the office number of Protecting Adult Welfare---which will be benefiting from the ticket sales and donations made throughout the event.
