Traci Lords was a major hit of the American porn scene almost from her first title, which made her perform with the most prominent actors of the genre such as Harry Reems, John Holmes, Hershel Savage, and Jamie Gillis, particularly in her early career. Naturally, they had notable age gap with Traci but such match-up was not purposeful. It is a simple rule of thumb that experience is the most precious asset of a male porn actor and porn directors of ‘Class A’ productions have recruited and still recruit actors well past their thirties. Traci’s time, the so-called Golden Age was no exception.
As for the alleged ethnic ‘preferences’ of Traci Lords, again she was a ‘Class A’ porn actress and the American porn industry of the Golden Age was considerably sensitive on the racial divide. Many aspiring porn actresses dodged performing with black actors on the sole reason that such move could have them assigned to the less prestigious niche productions including interracial films. For example, Chanel Price was much older and although of particularly attractive physical traits, did not possess the qualities for prominence. Accordingly, she rather became the ‘Queen of Spades’. Therefore, Traci did not have sex with any black actor (at least on camera) other than Billy Dee who was usually not considered black by many viewers and thus could not ‘stain’ a starlet’s career. Quite racist, eh? Furthermore, regarding the statement that she had sex with Japanese actors, I assume that this refers to the film Traci Takes Tokyo. Sorry to disappoint you but Traci did not have sex with any Japanese actors in that film; they were all body-doubled by Puerto Rican porn actor Don Fernando.
