R.I.P. Marilyn Chambers, 1952-2009

I see in today's news that Marilyn Chambers has died at the age of 56.

Here's the news article from the San Francisco Chronicle...

Porn Star Marilyn Chambers Dies at 56

While Chambers was best known for her career as a pornographic actress, she was also known for having been the Ivory Snow girl first. My first exposure to porn came when I was 17 years old, and saw Chambers in the film Behind the Green Door, and it was an eye-opening experience, to say the least. That movie, along with Deep Throat, launched the "porno chic" period, but I didn't get to see that movie until several years later.

In any event, Marilyn Chambers had a colourful, somewhat chequered, career, and for that reason her life and death are notable events.
