John Holmes In The Porn Industry

 Q:   Ask a Question about John Holmes In The Porn Industry       
John C. Holmes was considered to be one of the best porn actors ever lived. His penis length was considered to be the ever best, even though never exactly measured. Determining the number of films he made during the early part of his career is difficult because the ad copy rarely named him. Those that did usually used entirely inconsistent names. For example, one early "Swedish Erotica" brochure from 1973 has five loops featuring Holmes, each with a different name.

In the early years of his porn career, Holmes was nicknamed "The Sultan of Smut", a pun on Babe Ruth's nickname, The Sultan of Swat. With the success of Deep Throat (1972), Behind the Green Door (1972), and The Devil in Miss Jones (1973), porn became c hic, although its legality was still hotly contested. Holmes was arrested several times, for accusations like pimping, or pandering but he avoided prison, because of his connections with the LAPD. It is thought that the porn star was an informer for the LA police. Between 1971 and 1978, Holmes’ career reached the heights.

His climb was determined by a series of porn movies, starring a private investigator. He starred at a time when personality could compensate for a lack of other aesthetic characteristics, and a certain amount of acting ability was still demanded of porn stars. By the late 1970s, his use of cocaine was becoming a serious problem. Professionally, it affected his ability to maintain an erection, as is apparent from his performance in the 1980 film Insatiable. To support himself and his drug habit Holmes ventured into crime, selling drugs for gangs, prostituting himself to both men and women, and committing credit card fraud and petty theft.

In 1976, he met a 16-year-old girl, named Dawn Schiller, who became his girlfriend. After Holmes fell on hard times, he prostituted both her and himself, as well as beating her in public. He stated that he had sex with 14000 women. This number was never verified and was considered to be Holmes’ invention. He also mentioned that he got to that point, when he was having sex with 666 women in a year, almost 2 girls a day. Pornography historian Luke Ford calculated the number of Holmes' sexual partners over the course of his lifetime to be roughly 3,000.
