Ordeal by Linda LovelaceGood Girl. Obedient Wife.
Deep Throat Was Only The Beginning…
Linda Boreman was just twenty-one when she met Chuck Traynor, the man who would change her life. Less than two years later, the girl who wouldnt let her high school dates get past first base was catapulted to fame she could never have imagined in her wildest dreams--or worst nightmares. Linda Boreman of Yonkers, New York, had become Linda Lovelace, international adult film superstar. The unprecedented success of Deep Throat made porn popular with the mainstream and made Lovelace a household name. But nobody, from the A-list celebrities who touted the movie to the audiences that lined up to see it, knew the truth about what went on behind the scenes.
Enslaved by the man who would eventually force her into marriage so that he could control her completely, Linda was beaten savagely with regularity, hypnotized, and raped. She was threatened with disfigurement and death. She was terrorized into prostitution at gun and knifepoint. She was forced to perform unspeakable perversions on film. She made Deep Throat under unimaginable duress.
Years later, Linda would come out of hiding to relate her side of the story--a modern horror tale of humiliation, betrayal, and violence that would rock the porn industry and put its teller in fear for her life...
Linda Lovelace became a household name in 1972, when Deep Throat became the first pornographic movie ever to cross over into the mainstream. Due to the success of Deep Throat, she appeared in Playboy, Bachelor, and even Esquire between 1973 and 1974. Soon after, Lovelace joined in with anti-pornography feminists led by Andrea Dworkin and Catharine MacKinnon, and she testified before Attorney General Meeses Commission on Pornography in 1986. She died in Denver on April 22, 2002, due to severe injuries in a car accident.

In , an American cultural revolution was sparked by the most absurd premise imaginable: A frustrated young woman enjoys a sexual awakening when she learns that her clitoris is in her throat. The silly conceit took cinema by storm as Deep Throat hit theaters and became pornography's first big mainstream success. The genre, which had long been relegated to seedy peep shows, became the era's popular date night: Deep Throat 's box office beat Hollywood classics like Cabaret as it rose through the year's top ten highest-grossing films, paving the way for other X-rated box office hits like Behind the Green Door and The Devil in Miss Jones. Star Linda Lovelace was the sexually liberated girl next door who loved sex, and the public loved — or loved to hate — Linda. This was, however, only the first cultural revolution Lovelace would spark. In , she returned with Ordeal , her autobiography about the darkness behind her meteoric rise.
