Don’t miss the forward from Richard Pacheco’s long time friend and Neighbor Whoppi Goldberg. Here is an excerpt from Whoppi…
“Truth is I don’t think I knew Richard Pacheco the way I know Howie Gordon. There was no reason really and I don’t want to freak you out, reader, wondering if I had ever seen any of his films. The answer is, yes, I have. And I’ve been to the Adult Awards ceremonies, too.
We as a nation pay a lot of money to see what we profess to find dirty. Think of it like this, if everyone really felt like that, who’s keeping the adult industry alive and well? Someone is buying. I know a lot of folk feel that its destructive to young women and all the other things people speak about, and it may be true, but as you read this book, remember, it was a different time. It was the time of story telling with an X Rating, and there’s no one better to tell this story than my friend Howie Gordon.
So, sit back and prepare to laugh and gasp and if you get moved to say, make yourself even happier, well go for it.”

“Am I a defender of porn? Well, that’s a tough question. Sure I am, but sometimes the domination of male rage in the industry just gets to me. It comes off as so nasty and mean-spirited that it’s like a sex without humanity. Who but a werewolf could defend that? Yes, men are entitled to their anger and so are women, too, for that matter, but sex is so much bigger than that narrow band of human experience. We deserve better than just the forbidden fruit of the dark side.
There is more to sex than conquest and vengeance. I want to see that portrayed, too. We are in there. We are having all those experiences, from the awkward, mundane and embarrassing to the frightening, ecstatic and sublime. Sex provides some of the best stuff offered to us as human beings. And in the end, it is spectacularly, the smiling, cunning ruse of Nature to pay us with pleasure for the biological act of reproducing ourselves.
I’ve got a story and I’m gonna tell it. I don’t purport to have all of the answers, but I did ask a few of the questions, a few of the questions that many others of my generation, those heirs to the sexual revolution, perhaps wanted to ask, but when the time came, well, they just didn’t raise their hands.
There are, of course, reasons for how a guy like me could end up in the sex industry and I think their revelation pertinent, but please, do me the favor of not taking my “reasons” as “excuses.” I’ve read way too many books where reformed sinners or “born agains” cast blame, make excuses, and try to squirm their way into some kind of newfound respectability while simultaneously cashing in on their scandalous past. No thanks.
You see, when we slime balls account for ourselves publicly, the world seems to want, to require those good ol’ excuses like we are filling out an application for a license to have sinned.
Well, fuck all that. I never thought it was sinning to begin with, and frankly, I was there for the pussy. That makes me sound tougher than I am, but it’s essentially true…
The money was good, too. I was breaking up concrete for five bucks an hour when I got my first movie offer of $200 for getting a blowjob. And I had far more compelling personal reasons that I’ll get into, but the point is, I make no apologies for my dancing with the devil. I was where I wanted to be. I got into pornography with my eyes relatively open.
