About Traci Lords
Traci Elizabeth Lords is an American actress, former pornographic actress, singer, and model. During the mid-1980s, she used a driver’s license issued by the California DMV and a passport issued by the US State Department.
Lords got into the adult film industry by using a fake birth certificate to conceal the fact that she was two years under the legal age of 18.
Lords starred in X-rated films and was one of the most sought-after pornographic actresses in the adult entertainment industry during her career.
When the FBI acted on an anonymous tip that Lords was a minor during her time in the industry, and that pornographers were distributing and selling these de facto illegal images and videotapes, the resulting fallout led to prosecution of those responsible for creating and distributing.
In addition, all but the last of her adult films were banned as child pornography.
