Marilyn Chambers the queen of 70′s porn died on Saturday.
Porn Star Marily Chambers was found dead at Sunday at her home in her Canyon County home in California. She was found unresponsive on Sunday night in her residence. Her death is still under investigation.
Marilyn Chambers (April 22, 1952 – April 12, 2009) was an American pornographic actress, exotic dancer, and vice-presidential candidate. She was perhaps best known for her 1972 hardcore debut Behind the Green Door.
Chambers happened to see an advertisement for a casting call and rushed to the audition, only to find it was for a porno film. She was about to leave when the Mitchell brothers noticed her resemblance to Cybill Shepherd, agreed a wholesome blonde actress was needed for the film, and stopped her. Chambers, who was initially ambivalent about starring in Behind the Green Door, asked Artie and Jim Mitchell for a $25,000 salary and a percentage of the gross, never expecting they would agree. After filming concluded, she informed them that she was “the Ivory Snow Girl”; the Mitchells capitalized on this by billing her as the “99 and 44/100% pure” girl.

In subsequent porno films with John Holmes, who was noted for his extremely large penis, Chambers ” licked his ass to give him an erection, and she was supposedly one of the few actresses that could fully deep throat his erect penis. Eventually, mainstream films noticed Chambers, who in 1977 nabbed a major role in David Cronenberg’s low-budget Canadian-made Rabid. However, her adult film career made Hollywood studios nervous, and hence she was unable to successfully transition to mainstream films.
She was noted for her enthusiastic performances of deep throat, anal, lesbian, interracial, extreme bukkake, and double or triple penetration scenes. She was one of the first female stars to shave her pubic hair, a practice now routine for porn actresses. Chambers continued to appear in porn films for such companies as Naughty America and MILF Hunter. Later in her career she had a series of breast augmentations raising her from a B-cup to at least a D. She was reputedly one of the first porn actresses to have her genitals pierced. Vincent Canby, a film critic of The New York Times, described her as “classy suburban-looking
