PENTHOUSE Magazine, Volume 19, Number 9, 1984 Traci Lords
About this deal
While those might not have resulted in convictions, I think an underage person posed as they do in Penthouse probably would. Steiner, Amanda Michelle (August 25, 2015). "First Look: See the trailer for season 2 of EastSiders". Entertainment Weekly . Retrieved October 29, 2016.
In the year 1987 Traci joined in the Lee Strasberg acting school, started voice lessons and built on her natural acting talents. Her first mainstream break came out in 1988 Not of This Earth, a remake of the classic Roger Corman sci-fi film from the 1950s. It was the last time that Traci would expose her breasts for the camera.Or this. Leslie Jay-Gould, Penthouse's then-vice president and director of public relations: "The issue was beyond huge, was beyond anything. When it hit stands, I was fielding over a hundred calls a day. And then, two years later, the FBI came to the offices and took away all the issues. Yeah, it was a felony just to own." And I teamed up with Ashley West to investigate the mystery, because how could I dream up a better partner? He’s the creator of the Rialto Report, a web and podcast channel that documents the golden age of porn, and was a consultant on all three seasons of HBO’s The Deuce. Plus, Ashley has his own special connection to Traci, which will be revealed in episode six. Traci Lords (born Nora Louise Kuzma; May 7, 1968) is an American actress, singer and former pornographic actress. She entered the adult film industry using a fake birth certificate to conceal that she was two years under the legal age of eighteen.  Lords starred in adult films and was one of the most sought-after actresses in that industry during her career. When the FBI acted on an anonymous tip that Lords was a minor during her time in the industry, and that pornographers were distributing and selling these illegal images and videotapes, the resulting fallout led to prosecution of those responsible for creating and distributing the tapes.  In addition, all but the last of her adult films were banned as child pornography.

Traci’s story brings up so many questions about consent and sex work, and there don’t seem to be any easy answers. Did it settle anything for you on whether what happened to her was “right” or “wrong”? In 1991, Lords starred in the thriller Raw Nerve and the action crime film A Time to Die. Lords appeared in such popular TV shows as Roseanne, Married... with Children, MacGyver and Hercules.
