MARILYN CHAMBERS April 22nd, 1952- April 12th, 2009 We love you always, Miss Chambers. Marilyn Chambers was the biggest adult film star of the 1970s and 1980s, during the genre's explosive rise from 8MM loops and raincoat theaters to feature production and mainstream distribution. Miss Chambers was a pioneer for pro-sex feminism, influencing Madonna and Camille Paglia, and she maintained her commitment to protecting free expression and liberating female sexuality in particular throughout her life. No wonder, then, that many of her fans, like myself, are gay men, who view her as an incredible icon, as opposed to a personal fantasy. But what is so much more important is that Marilyn was a wonderful human being, warm and sincere, and with a love of her fans that could be compared to that of an Old Hollywood Movie Star, which, to me, Marilyn always was, and always will be. Miss Chambers passed away on April 12th, 2009, ten days before her 57th birthday. She leaves behind her greatest accomplishment, her eighteen year old daughter, McKenna. Her legacy is not only as the first mainstream movie star of adult cinema but as a talented actress, stage performer, Libertarian activist, and outspoken advocate for female sexual empowerment. She is missed by her legion of diverse fans, and remembered as both an inimitable icon and a beautiful human being.
