'Golden Girls' of Porn at NYC Museum of Sex Tonight

Bob Johnson

NEW YORK — New York City’s Museum of Sex is playing host to some of adult’s legendary female performers tonight.

Affectionately dubbed, “The Golden Girls of Porn:” Veronica Hart, Gloria Leonard, Candida Royalle, Veronica Vera and Annie Sprinkle are appearing at the venue’s Club 90 — founded by the group — to share an evening of intimate stories about the Golden Age of adult.

“Turning to one another for the support they needed to navigate their way through life in blue movies, these dynamic women created Club 90 in 1983, forming a bond that would continue for 30 years.

"They went on to pursue their personal goals, and in the process, blazed new trails in the fields of human sexuality, women‘s empowerment, erotic expression, and free speech,” the Museum description reads.

The august group of former performers will talk about the era when New York City was the hub of porn, where most films were shot on 35mm film and Times Square was home to numerous X-rated theaters and clubs.

Tonight’s gathering runs from 6-8 p.m. ET.

The Museum is located at 233 Fifth Avenue, New York.

Tickets are $25 and can be purchased here.
