John Holmes in his prime.

From the early 70s until the early 80s, there was only one man you thought of when you thought of adult cinema: John Holmes. As the smooth-talking detective Johnny Wadd, he thrilled audiences with semi-competent acting and incredibly competent sex scenes.

His story didn’t end when the camera shut off — that’s really where it started. It’s a story so full of sex, drugs, murder, and lies that it almost seems like a badly written movie.
