For Nina Hartley
Source: Adult Industry News
by: William Margold

As the acclaimed (by virtually anyone worth a damn) highly controversial Historian and proclaimed (by even those not worth a damn) eternally outspoken Patriarch of X… I feel that it’s my duty to alert AINews readers to the fact that Nina Hartley — the Adult Entertainment Industry’s "Bowl of Sunshine" — is having medical problems that has caused a website: (www.giveforward.com/giveitawayfornina) to reach out to all of her fans for financial assistance.

Therefore… with limited editing and minimal addition… I am offering the bordering on "too much information" — soulfully created by a fan of Nina’s — sentiment… that is calling attention to that website.

**********

Nina Hartley is seeking funds to cover her recovery from surgery, tentatively scheduled for late January/early February 2011.

Recovery will take 2-4 weeks.

Nina has fibroid tumors in her uterus. They are genetic and not cancer, nor will they turn into cancer. So that’s a blessing right there. However, they are unsightly, and they are starting to cause other, negative side effects. After dealing with them for nearly twenty years, the time has come for a permanent solution. She thought that nearing menopause would cause them to shrink, but they show no signs of doing so. So…surgery is the next step. She’s lucky enough to have medical insurance to cover the cost of the operation. What she needs is money to cover her expenses during recovery. In her 26 years as perhaps the most beloved adult entertainment actress/activist of all-time… she’s never needed help more.

And she’s never asked for help before. So it’s very hard for her to do so now.

**************

My own very highly valued relationship with the perpetually radiant, seemingly tireless (she eagerly "volunteered" for every anti-censorship fundraising event I created for many years) trooper Nina Hartley extends way back to late 1985, when I choose her to be the X-Rated Critics Organization’s "Heart-On" Girl for its February 1986 event. I remember her very innocently asking me why I had picked her. And with absolute confidence, I told her, "Because you are going to be one of the very best that will ever be."

By 1989, she had taken over the duties of the XRCO’s Mistress of Ceremonies.

And it was in that capacity, during the XRCO’s 1990 frosty event in the Merry-Go-Round area of the Santa Monica Pier when the ocean wind-chilled-aided temperature sank below freezing, that she persevered, without a whimper, throughout the proceedings, clad in the scantiest of purple outfits. In 1991, realizing that she was unparalleled in her awesome ability to create a mutual admiration (and adoration) society between herself and the fans, I humbly asked her to host the first FOXE (the Fans of X-Rated Entertainment) awards. And finally, when the Legends of Erotica were established in 1994…there was absolutely no doubt in my mind that the very first performer I wanted have inducted would be Nina Hartley. So it was fitting that during the recent Legends of Erotica inductions in Las Vegas, that I held up one of Protecting Adult Welfare’s bear buckets — featuring a beautifully drawn image of Nina — and told the fan-packed audience that, "One of our very best needs help."

And it was extremely gratifying that the fans’ thanks for the multitude of molten memories provided by Nina Hartley, resulted in Protecting Adult Welfare being able to donate $333 to her through www.giveforward.com/giveitawayfornina. Now… it’s your turn!
