Before becoming a porn actress, Linda Lovelace was known as Linda Susan Boreman. Her father was a police officer and she attended a Catholic school in Yonkers, New York.

The young girl became a mother at the age of 20, but her mother had the child adopted.

The fate of Lovelace began to be traced when she, aged 21, met Charles Traynor, better known as "Chuck" . The man, who is 13 years older than her, was struck by her beauty and promised to make her a star.

Her husband introduced her to prostitution

Traynor was, however, a violent and domineering man. He married Linda while becoming her pimp. He allegedly even hit her the day before their wedding. During the filming of Deep Throat , Chuck allegedly carried his gun with him and threatened to kill her if she did not continue working.

Chuck introduced Linda to prostitution. He tested her as an actress in low budget porn and pocketed all the money he got. The unfortunate woman told in her biography that it was only for this reason that her husband married her.

This role in Deep Throat went on to make Linda famous all over the world. The New York Times called the film "porn chic . " Some feminist groups praised "the woman who dared to enjoy sex freely and openly . "
