Old School Porn

Blue Iris, the old woman from the "rejuvenation" porno, called in again today. She said she got into porno when a video company called her. She claimed she's only 58, but Richard said all actresses take off 20 years, so that means she's closer to 80. Howard wanted to know if Blue Iris was mentally ill. She said she's bipolar, but that's it. However, Gary had learned that Blue Iris was in a mental institution when she was 28, and that she had 18 electro-shock treatments during that time. He also said she was the subject of an ABC program about mental institutions. In fact, Blue Iris used this experience to help get a patients' rights law passed.

Although Blue Iris said she doesn't do porn for the money, Richard brought up a scene from one of her movies where she stops and refuses to go on until she's paid. She said some porn companies write bad checks, so that was her only recourse to get her money. She told Howard that she gets more than $1,000 per scene.
