Traci Lords – The Underage Scandal of Classic Porn

One of the scandals that emerged from classic porn movies was the true age of one of the female porn stars, Traci Lords, once revealed when she turned 18. Her fame was then multiplied and her work became well known across the country.

Traci Lords began modeling under a false name when she was only 15 with the help of fake IDs. After landing in a photo shoot for the classic porn magazine Penthouse, Traci Lords became a sexual icon for many men. Penthouse led her to star in pornography and in that same year, she had completed three pornographic movies. She didn’t need to prove legal consent because her fake IDs put her to be 20, five years older than she actually was. Her youthful appearance and sprite mannerisms caused Lords to be immediately popular, gaining more publicity than many other female porn stars of her time.

When the true age of Traci Lords was exposed to authorities in 1986, she had already completed over 100 films for the porn industry. Since she was not able, by law, to provide her own legal consent to acting within the industry, Traci Lords was never legally charged after her arrest. Instead, the agencies, producers and companies that employed Lords were entangled in legal issues for many years. The other actors that worked with her also gained notoriety as a result of her age reveal; the feat is almost considered a bragging right in modern times. One movie, the only one which she gave legal consent for, remains available in America. It is called Traci, I Love You.

Thanks to her fame early on in life, Traci Lords was able to have a steady career as a non-pornographic actress. She has also produced biographies about the porn industry and clarified the scandal that was caused by her lack of legal consent early on in her career.
