The Pornographer's Daughter
The Pornographer's Daughter: A Memoir of Childhood, My Dad, and Deep Throat | Kristin Battista-Frazee
1 post | 2 read | 1 to read
More than forty years after Deep Throat arrived on the cultural scene and inspired a sexual revolution, questions about the ethics of pornography and its impact on society are still being asked today and remain as controversial as ever. Kristin Battista-Frazee was only four years old in 1974 when her father, Anthony Battista, was indicted by the federal government for distributing the now famous porn film Deep Throat. As her father unexpectedly became an early pioneer in the emerging porn industry and transformed himself from Philadelphia stockbroker to porn broker, this indictment threatened his familys stability. The stress drove Kristins mother, Frances Battista, to worry endlessly if her husband would be put in jail. She became so depressed that she attempted suicide. Kristin survived this family trauma to live a surprisingly normal life. But instead of leaving the past behind her, she developed a burning curiosity to understand her familys history. Why did the federal government so vehemently prosecute this case? And why did her father get involved in distributing this notorious porn film in the first place? Did the influence of pornography in fact make Kristin a better person? Answering these questions and reconciling her dramatic family history with her life as a wife and mother became her mission. The Pornographers Daughter is an insiders glimpse into the events that made Deep Throat and pornography so popular, as well as what it was like to come of age against the backdrop of the pornography business.

This was fine, but I‘d rather hang out in the yard with Molly, even if it‘s 90 F out!

Kristin‘s father was a distributor of Deep Throat and went on trial for his involvement in Memphis in the 1970s. It destroyed his marriage, but he continued to be in the porn business with a chain of adult stores in Florida. This is Kristin‘s life in the shadow of her father‘s career and her parents‘ crumbling marriage. In the #AudiblePlus catalogue.

Megabooks I‘ll have to send y‘all a picture/video of her playing with Hairy Elephante (after Harry Belafonte). I think she thinks he‘s a real baby bunny because he‘s gray and about the right size. She has a real zest in killing him. I‘m beginning to have theories about how she came to me. @Cinfhen @BarbaraBB will write soon!! 5mo
