In 1972, before the internet and before the porn explosion, "Deep Throat" was a phenomenon: the first scripted XXX theatrical feature film, featuring a story, some jokes, and an unknown and unlikely star, Linda Lovelace.

Escaping a strict religious family, Linda discovered freedom and the high-life when she fell for and married charismatic hustler Chuck Traynor.

As Linda Lovelace, she became an international sensation-less centerfold fantasy than a charming girl-next-door with an impressive capacity for fellatio.

After struggling to break free from Traynor whose endless abuse nearly killed her, Linda made it her life's mission to fight violence against women.
