Marilyn Chambers 1952-2009


Marilyn Chambers has died at the age of 56. Oddly enough, I spent a lot of time thinking about Marilyn, for various reasons, throughout the completion of my thesis over the past year, so this comes as a bit of an emotional surprise for me. Reflections are sure to come in a variety of forms, and perhaps I'll try and say something more later. But, for now, spreading the news and raising my glass to a major star. We always wanted more, more, more from Marilyn. Luckily, we'll all be able to still find it.

UPDATE:

A few really nice tributes from Susie Bright and Glenn Kenny and Jeremy Richey. Can't do much better than these.

I would totally watch Rabid right now if I had a copy.

I just posted another tribute to Marilyn in Rabid over at Moon in the Gutter. Thanks again for posting a respectful tribute here.

Thanks Jeremy. I've linked you here (obviously) as your tribute, and all your writing, is so deeply sincere. Very dear words. I said this at Moon and I'll say it here...thanks for sharing.
