Harry Reems, whose starring role in Deep Throat in 1972 made him Americas first bona fide male porn star and whose life, more than most, embodied the time-honored American narrative of fame, failure and redemption died on Tuesday in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was 65.

one of the all time greats- he will be sorely missed....
Too bad that he didn’t get a chance to serve in the Obama Administration, he would have raised the moral standards by an order of magnitude.
Bill Clinton is no longer jealous.
It’s a shame he didn’t make it to 69!
I was not a fan of his work and I never saw Deep Throat. But the man served this country in the US Marine Corp and later in life converted to Christianity; two redeeming qualities in spite of “acting”.
Nixon had to see deep throat 3 times before he could get it down Pat
When I heard this story via ABC news while listening to the Savage Nation when in another room , somewhat distracted at the time , I thought Harry Reid had died !
(I’d bet it never happened).
Same job description....
and later in life converted to Christianity;
A big loss
Question.....how are they going to be able to close the coffin?
Heard he did more than just a few times
LOL, we should be so lucky.
I remember when it was first showing in Orlando at some obscure porno theater on SOBT.
Local news was showing the long lines. Can’t remember if any of those in line were interviewed on camera.
With all of the publicity a buddy and I went to see it. I don’t recall much as I was coming off a back injury and was pretty medicated. I don’t think the film took itself too seriously.
I do recall one scene, which seemed funny at the time. Some character had been trying to make time with a girl. She kept telling him she would only have a man with a 9” member. Finally, near the end, he calls her and says he’s found a way to meet her standards. He’s got a doctor that will remove 3”.
What’s this? Finally! A job opening in the Great Obama Depression!? I’m available! Look at me! (Pictures at 11)
I remember seeing Deep Throat with my girlfriend back in the 1970’s. The story was stupid. The movie was poorly done. Linda Lovelace was the only good thing about it. Later I found out Linda Lovelace was being beaten and abused by her husband during her porn career.

And the mafia took the money and ran.
Reems? Damn near killed ‘um!
no sympathy for the creeps
Anyone else remember the “I Choked Linda Lovelace” tee shirts?
65 my ass!!
The bigger deal is that he was a Jew who became a Christian.
Huge bonus points, there.
RIP Harry glad to see that you found the Lord. Now enjoy your heavenly reward and all your earthly pain is now gone.
The way he has been talking lately maybe from the neck up, man he's got some geraniums in the cranium.
Funny, his opponent was way ahead and he pulls it out, hmmm.... The Mob, Unions or whoever put this poor excuse for a Senator over the top deserve all the dysfunction they and Nevada can get.
They made their bed let um lie in it...
REALLY, NY Times?
well at least he was not Boehner fide.
u so funny. lol
Reems left the porn industry in 1980 and moved to Park City, Utah, where he later became a real-estate agent, marrying Jeanne in 1990. "He was very romantic and a great husband," she said. The actor, who struggled with multiple health problems which kept him at home in his final years, was admitted to hospital earlier this month. He also received chemotherapy treatment earlier this year for pancreatic cancer. "
His last year or so was really, really hard," Jeanne said.
Clearly the editor is a comedian.
Good riddance to scum like this.
ES - did you know he turned his life around and became a devout Christian lecturing against the evils of pron and drugs? He became a successful real estate executive.Is there room in your heart for compassion for a child of God?
Forgive this filthy piece of sh*t for all the depravity and violent crimes he has helped to cause?
I cannot. I despise people like this.
At least he had love in his heart, instead of bitter hatred like you. He also served his country.
I am one of the many people who thinks her stories are bunkum, and were a desperate attempt to try and gain a ‘clean’ public image when the days of ‘porno chic’ died and there was a reaction against porn.
There is no evidence that she was forced, and only very minor evidence that domestically she was hit by her husband. Other stories of her like having on camera sex with a dog, well to this day not one ‘stag reel’ or photo of that has ever surfaced, nor can journalists or porn historians find anyone who took part in the supposed production.
Her story has been well researched by several mainstream and non-mainstream writers and historians, from Legs McNeill to academics.
Lovelace saw the porn backlash coming and she went public with these allegations, and lo and behold, the feminists and antiporn right never questioned her stories and made her a hero. Thats my frank opinion. Her stories were pure fiction made up to make herself a victim forced to do all the terrible things that made her fame when that fame began to attract a backlash.
I would shun anyone related to porn in any way
Patriot, I can certainly respect your opinion. I can also understand where you are coming from. I wish you peace and a great weekend.
You sure he isn’t making commercials for Ram trucks?
Linda Boreman(Linda Lovelace's real name) has written she was regularly beaten up by and abused her then boyfriend and later husband. I can't verify if her story is totally accurate or not. Linda made millions of dollars for the mafia backers of Deep Throat. She got nothing.
My main point was Linda Lovelace was the only reason Deep Throat was successful. Harry Reems’ career high point and first line in his obituary was just that he was in the same movie.
Now it seems like any woman under 65 probably has at least been willing to try or practice at it
Oral Sex is probably now more common than not and most girls feel compelled to try to “accommodate”
I can recall growing up as a boy in the 60s when that book Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex But Where Afraid to Ask came out
Folks were shocked by some that and I remember my folks talking about oral sex very hush hush and as a gross thing.
kind of a good girls don't thing...
I doubt many women...even of faith ..who don't both give and receive today
but along with that we have so fallen down the wormhole in more destructive ways
You are consistent about anything to do with sexual aberrations God luv ya.
You two need to meet if you haven’t already.
I am consistent, that is true
Ill tell ya...consistency is a good thing
And i agree with u on 95% of stuff
Especially hot button stuff
Its like you said on Rand Paul
Everybody is not going to agree on everything
