'When you see the movie Deep Throat, you are watching me being raped. It is a crime that movie is still showing. There was a gun to my head the entire time. Chuck kept a gun in his pocket and would click the trigger, letting me know what would happen if I did not look convincing.' [Linda] Boreman said.
Deep Throat cost $30,000 to make back in 1972 and it made more than $600 million dollars, making it the most lucrative film ever made. Linda Boreman only got a paltry $1,200 out of it. But her ex-husband and his mafia buddies sure as hell lived large. They suffered none of the health consequences to their bodies and damage to their psyches that the women they chewed up and spit out in their filthy industry did and continue to do. In her middle-aged years, Linda Susan Boreman suffered a double mastectomy as a direct result of the “boob jobs” and silicone injections that she was coerced into getting by the men who profited handsomely off of the degradation and abuse of her body for other men’s entertainment.
WHEN YOU SEE THE MOVIE DEEP THROAT YOU ARE WATCHING LINDA BOREMAN BEING RAPED. And that was just the beginning of the years of degradation, abuse and humiliation this woman survived.
The first porno movie centers around a woman being horrifically, repeatedly raped. Quite a precedent.
But porn is “empowerful”, right? ::eye-roll:: (via fuckgenderbinary)
