Carter Stevens gave me "Power and Control"…He totally "Empowered Me"
In 1976 I was a sweet, innocent, little blondish preppie girl from Queens, looking for a good time. First I did some promotional work for the "Ms. All Bare America Contest". It was being run by Show World Center on 42nd St in Manhattan. Naked girls were to parade on stage and do a little sexy dance or act. It was my job to put up stickers on lamp poles, glue posters on billboards and give out flyers promoting the contest. At the time I was employed by a gynecologist and was only doing this for some extra cash and fun after work. On the actual night of the contest I was asked to take off my blouse and run around naked greeting and talking to the audience. I did so with gusto, loving every minute of it! I was flirting with everyone laughing as I was doing it! I was having a ball!
After the contest I received a phone call. It was from Show World Center on 42nd St. and 8th Ave. They were promoting the contest. They wanted me to do some live sex shows on stage for their new, outrageous and creative Bizarre Burlesque Show. I was to act out "The Fantasy of the Week" on stage. They were giving out questionnaires in the street and theatre asking the public what their favorite fantasy was. I was to act out a different fantasy every week according to what was most popular that week on the questionnaires. Every Monday I was given a new fantasy to act out. I thought that it would be a fun and exciting thing to do. I agreed to do it. I didn’t want to do it for the sex or money, even though that was the initial draw, but just for the fun of it! Plus being an exhibitionist it sounded like it would be a ball!
My first show was a "Banana Slit" act where me and another girl would insert bananas in each other, squirt the whipped cream and pour cherry juice all over each other. Then we would lick everything off of each other. Lick..slurp..Yum!!!! That was fun!
Then they wanted me to do an S&M show. Me and several other girls would spank and whip each other. At the end of every show we would have time for the "Audience Participation" where someone would come up from the audience to get spanked or whipped. "Crack!!!" would go the whip! "Slap" would go my hand on someone’s butt! I would order men to get down, squawk like a pig and lick my feet! Then I would give them a good crack of the whip on the butt. Men were "cuming" on the stage instantaneously all of the time. Well dressed business men. It was very enlightening and an exciting new thing. This show drew the biggest crowd ever. It was always sold out with standing room only.
One day after doing my S&M show on stage I was taken to the side by the promoter of the show. He said that someone wants me to be in their porno movie and would I be interested! I enthusiastically said "YES"!!!! I called the number and went for the initial interview about a week before the actual shooting of the movie. I was told to ask for Carter Stevens. I went to the address and was escorted to a room. Seated was Carter Stevens at a big and impressive desk. He was a strong and powerful looking man but spoke very professionally and articulated every word…I wasn’t intimidated by his presence. He explained that he wanted me to do the "Double Insertion" scene in his new movie and explained how much it would be paying. I had not idea what a "Double Insertion" was but eagerly agreed. In my mind all that I thought it was to have sex with two different men at different times. I had no idea as to what it really was. As soon as I said "OK", Carter yelled out happily to a co-worker, "She will do it!!" I shrugged…I worked out a date and time to meet for the shoot.
Carter had told me to dress like a "beatnik" for the movie because it will have a Bohemian flavor. Before the movie I went to my mother’s dresser and picked out some of her Beatnik earrings and a necklace. I went and bought some false eyelashes, red nail polish and sexy panties. I made sure that I shaved my pussy and legs well in the morning and put some extra perfume on all over. Up and down…I wanted to be pretty, sexy and alluring.
I showed up at Carter’s loft in midtown Manhattan at the scheduled time. I was a little nervous and all excited about it! It was my first porn feature film. I brushed my hair before I went it. I also sprayed a little perfume on. Someone let me in and led me to Carter. He was sitting at a big desk…with a couch to the side. He handed me the script for the movie and told me exactly what a "Double Insertion" was. It was having sex with two men simultaneously. One in the pussy and one in the ass….I shrieked and said "What?"…He lowered his head a little towards me, looked me straight in the eyes, with a little smile on his face said calmly and reassuredly, "Yes, at the same time. That’s what you agreed to last week. I really need you for this part". In my mind I thought that if someone had done it before "I can do it too!" I am also the type of person who will try anything once. Almost anything… And having previously worked for a Gynecologist I knew that a woman’s body was very flexible and would stretch so they can have babies. Plus the idea of having sex with two men was a big turn on. I was getting horny already. So I said in a sultry way, "sure, when do we start?" Carter said that he first wanted to give me a final interview on the couch. He told me to sit down and started unzipping his pants. I knew that this kind of thing was customary in the porn industry. I really wanted to do the movie and was afraid that if I said "no" I wouldn’t be able to make the movie! I was also very horny and ready for anything so I got right down on him. I went up and down and make sure that my teeth didn’t get in the way. I used my tongue a lot. He came real quick and then sat back and relaxed. aaaahhhh I was ready for anything at that point.
I was then led into another room where I was introduced to the two males that would be working with me. One’s name was Pepe Valentino. He had an extremely cute look to him. I felt that he was going to really make it big in the industry one day. The other star’s name was "Hershel Savage". He later became a big porno star in the California area. He was big and handsome but very down to Earth and likeable. I said, "Let’s go". I wanted to get going. I was anxious to try this.
First in the movie, I and the other two men had a little dialogue where I would try to convince the two men to have sex with me. One was supposed to be my new husband and the other was supposed to be the best man from the wedding. This scene Carter made sure was perfect. He took several takes and retakes. Standing around us were camera men, lighting men and sound men. There was a lot of large studio sized professional equipment. There was also one guy with makeup who kept putting lipstick on me. Carter kept taking breaks to look at the video to make sure all was perfect. This took some time.
Then the sex started. I put lots of Vaseline all over my vagina and ass and all over the penis’s of the two men. I wanted to make sure that it didn’t hurt. That was a big mistake because the two penises kept sliding out. I would get one into my ass and then the one going into my pussy would push it out. Swoosh! Plop! So I decided that the best idea was to have the one in my ass come first because that was the most difficult. I let him come and kept him in my ass. I was really getting into it! Then I had the other guy go deep into my pussy while the other guy was still in my ass and worked him hard until he came. Phew, it worked and it felt good too. Aaaahhhh…….
My biggest fear, worry and concern during the entire movie were that one of my false eyelashes would fall off! It never happened. All went well!
Carter paid me what he had promised and I went on my way.
Then from other porn actors and actress I would get dates and addresses where loops were being shot. One name that kept constantly coming up was Carter Stevens. I made several loops doing "Double Insertions" or anals. I was experienced at that and it paid the most.
One day in 1978 I was walking down 42nd Street on the north side of the street. All of a sudden in the middle of the street on a billboard was my picture in the arms of Herschel Savage who was my co-star in Honeymoon Haven. I felt like a million dollars. Then I saw it in the street on another billboard on 59th St across the street from Bloomingdales in Manhattan. Then it was on the opposite side of the street on 42nd street from where it first was. My picture was all over!
I would walk down the street on my way to do live sex shows at "Show World Theatre" and men would stop me in the street and tell me that they saw me in the movie and how much they enjoyed it! Several times men would ask if they could buy my underwear!
I would always fell important walking down the street……I had power over men and could control them!!!
Working with Carter Steven’s and doing Honeymoon Haven with him was one of the most enjoyable experiences in my life. I enjoyed it not for the money or sex but for the internal power and strength that it gave me. I am also proud of it because I was part of "New York’s Golden Age of Porn" which is no longer viable on the street. I was part of New York’s history! I never once had a bad day when I was in the porn industry which was fueled by Carter Steven’s and my doing Honeymoon Haven for him. Everyday was an adventure and I looked forward to doing it!
Thanks to Carter Stevens I had "Power and Control" and empowerment that lasted a life time, because of my role in "Honeymoon Haven". Thank you Carter!
