Best 70’s Female Pornstars

The 1970s, sometimes referred to as the “Golden Age of Pornography,” were a decade filled with unforgettable adult film productions and some of the greatest female pornstars. Not only were these actresses stunning, but they were also gifted, adaptable, and trailblazing. 

From Linda Lovelace to Candida Royalle, there were many amazing actresses in 1970s porn who wowed audiences with their performances. The greatest female pornstars of the 1970s are included in this article by Adult Site Broker; these ladies defied expectations set by the business with their attractiveness, sincerity, and compelling roles.

Kitten Natividad

Let’s start with an icon: Kitten Natividad (1948–2022) is without a doubt the top choice among the 70s female pornstars in our list. Before acting in her debut film, The New Centurions, she began her career as a go-go dancer and won two Miss Nude Universe competitions. She began performing in porn during the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s because to her wild beauty, endearing personality, and seductive appeal. She began by playing non-speaking parts before moving up to intense sequences. After being included in Russ Meyer’s Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens, she went on to become a cult classic. 

Roberta Pedon

Roberta Pedon, an Italian actress, is ranked number two. Her striking appearance, bohemian demeanor, and larger breast swiftly elevated her to the status of one of the 1970s’ top female pornstars and a well-liked adult industry model. Her most famous performance is from the film Carnal Desiers, which is often referred to as Delinquent School Girls or The Sizzlers. Before retiring in the late 1970s, she made appearances in 8mm sex loops and worked as a big-bust nude model for several porn publications after her debut. 

Chesty Morgan

Chesty Morgan overcame adversity—losing her husband in an attempted heist after her parents were killed by Nazis in occupied Poland—to become well-known and one of the burlesque circuit’s highest-paid acts in the 1970s. As implied by her name, Morgan was well-known for her naturally enormous breasts, which are the main subject of Double Agent 73 and Deadly Weapons, two of her most well-known pornographic films directed by a female. 

Desiree West

Desiree West, who debuted in the porn scene in the 1970s and was among the first black performers in the adult industry, ranks fourth. She was also one of the top pornstars of her era.  With her first acknowledged appearance as Kit in Ann Perry’s Count The Ways, she gained notoriety for her performances in black and Asian-focused pornos. West rose to fame as one of the few actors in the business who could do conversation. She continued to perform when she felt the need to check whether she still had it after retiring in the 1980s, and in the 1990s, she was inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame.  

Linda Gordon

Actress Linda Gordon, who was born in the United States, made her screen debut in The Last American Hobo in the late 1960s. Before leaving the adult business, she rose to fame fast and acted in the 1970s movies Fugitive Lovers, November Children, and Angels Wild Women

Karen Brown

She began her career as a model in the 1970s, and in 1975, the American porn magazine Climax published her first picture. Before getting into porn, one of the most well-known pornstars of the 1970s was Karen Brown. As a BBW model, she broke down barriers in the business and made room for pornstars who weren’t usually petite and skinny. Later, she starred in Titanic Naturals, Super Juggs, and Big Bust Babes

Roxanne Brewer

Roxanne Brewer began her career as a well-known naked model in the 1970s, appearing in films such as “Gent,” “Mayfair,” and Climax, before transitioning into softcore porn. Because of her beauty, natural breasts, and red hair, she was regarded as a stunner. She made her screen debut in Night of the Witches and even had an uncredited cameo in the widely watched 1970s comedy Hooper, making her one of the most well-known pornstars of the decade.

Israeli-born and residing in London In the 1960s, Clyda Rosen was a well-known nude model for a number of men’s publications, including Gent. She began collaborating with pin-up photographer George Harrison Marks in the 1970s. She made appearances in several of his 8mm hardcore and softcore pornos, including her 1970 debut short Die Lollos. She had breast reduction surgery, chopped off her hair, and performed under the new stage name “Vietta Manning” in the middle of the 1970s. She collaborated with Lasse Braun on his 1977 film Sex Maniacs while performing under this new persona. She was a prominent model and actress in the 1970s porn industry because to her attractive and seductive 4’11” frame, long brown hair, and breast implants. 

Mary Waters

Mary Waters, another famous female pornstar of the 1970s, defied beauty norms with her huge, busted, and overweight appearance. She proved you didn’t have to be little and tiny to be a popular pornstar. Mary Waters costarred with Karen Brown in huge Bust Babes and Titanic Naturals. She is among the most well-known BBW models from the time. 

Candida Candida

Director, feminist, and porn star Candida Royalle is deserving of a spot in our compilation of the top porn actresses from the 1970s. Originally a model, she transitioned to porn in the middle of the 1970s, making her screen debut in Jerry Abram and Zachary Strong‘s The Analyst in 1975. Before quitting acting and transitioning towards directing in the 1980s, she starred in 25 movies over the course of the following five years. She founded Femme Productions, specializing in sensuous, sexual, female-focused pornography that put the focus on enjoyment rather than the “end goal,” as most male-dominated porn was doing at the time. 

Linda Lovelace 

When discussing notable pornstars from the 1970s and the Golden Age of Pornography, Linda Lovelace (1949-2002), star of Deep Throat, must be mentioned. Lovelace rose to fame in the adult film business due to her lack of gag reaction. Throughout the 1970s, she was employed in the adult film industry, appearing in the comedic films Linda Lovelace for President (1975) and Deep Throat II (1974). She became a born-again Christian, retired in 1977, and eventually got involved in the anti-porn campaign.

Marilyn Chambers

Marilyn Chambers (1952–2009), best known for her part in the extreme pornographic film Behind The Green Door, rose to porn stardom in the 1970s and 1980s with her performance in Insatiable.

She was honored with prizes for Sexcapades at the Critics Adult Film prizes in the 1980s and AVN awards in the 1990s.
