LOS ANGELES -- Tiny blonde adult star Cara Lott, a long-time Orange
County resident, has died after a long battle with a debilitating disease.

The 5-foot-4 star, who at her prime had weighed about 105 pounds, had
shrunk to just 85 pounds in her last days. She was 56 years old.

"She was just like a nothing of a person in those final days", "Frank
the Rat" a friend of hers told AVN.

"I would text her but she wouldn't text back, ask her if everything was
okay and didn't hear back, and then this morning when I got to work, her
sister used her phone to text me to let me know that she passed."

What time-frame constitutes the "golden age" of "adult movies"? From what year to what year?

I understand that "golden ages" are generally never recognized while the actual golden age is going on. When, within the golden age's aftermath, did someone actually realize that it wasn't the golden age anymore?

IMHO, I imagine the rise of the early 1980s AIDS crisis had something to do with the demise of the "golden age"?

My wild guess is that it had to do with the transition from film to
videotape.

There was nothing "golden" about it. That term means "old".

I think "golden" was another word for "hairy."

Another meaning is "just right."

And the online Urban Dictionary doesn't mention this, but I'm pretty sure that one slang meaning of the word is "18 years old." As in "golden groupie."

That was my first thought as well. The switch to video on the
consumption side non-violently exterminated the entire porn theater
industry while the switch on the production side allowed even
sleazier, lower-budgeted, less competent people to create it.

I'm not sure if it says more about me or the industry, but if you put
a gun to my head and demanded that I name porn performers, the only
ones I could come up with are all from the film-era 1970s and mostly
long-dead. Although I find it really odd to think about now, they were
household names back then.

IMDb says she died on March 19, 2018.

It also gives her a credit in Brian De Palma's 1984 movie Body Double as "Girl #2 in Bathroom (as Pamela Weston)"
