Porn Again

Once a national sensation, Marilyn Chambers is finally ready to retire from the porn business

Tomorrow, Marilyn will sit in yet another adult-novelty store, signing autographs and viewing old movies with fans, reminiscing about just what was happening behind the scenes while she screwed her brains out on cue. Tonight, she thanks the cop for the strawberries and insists that everyone try one. She gets to talking about the old days, when she figured she'd be able to cross over, especially after Midnight Cowboyand Last Tango in Paris won critical acclaim despite their X ratings. Nearby fans offer comfort. She canact, they insist. "But the scripts are awful," she protests.

She's right, of course, but the way she flits her eyes, the sly smile at just the right moment, the tilt of her head -- acting is more than just a script, she's told, and she's done the best she could with the material she was given. She looks up and smiles.

"You're sweet to say so," she says. "You know what? I need another beer. I don't want you to buy it -- you've bought enough."

Marilyn Chambers: "None of my marriages worked out. I'm very honest, brutally, to a point. Most men can't handle that."

And Marilyn Chambers rises and walks, alone, to the bar.
