Desperately Seeking Seka

You can have today's porn stars, many of whom seem completely interchangeable if you ask me. When I was growing up there was only one porn queen who mattered to me and that was Seka, The Platinum Princess. Not sure what it was about her, but there was a certain special something (or somethings) that got my attention.

After rising to the top of her profession, Seka sort of drifted out of sight as porn's Golden Age came to an end and the industry began favoring straight-to-video compilations over porn flicks with plots, paper thin as they may have been.

Seka's experiencing a bit of a resurgence these days, including film festival appearances for the documentary DESPERATELY SEEKING SEKA, an interview with the woman herself over at her website (courtesy of Chiller Theatre), and even a limited edition statue.
