Tracey Adams

Biography

Tracey Adams was born on the 7th of June 1959. Her birth name is Deborah Blaisdell. She performed in over 200 films and throughout this period she went by the aliases Tracy Adams, Tracey Adams, Tracy Roams and Debbie Blaisdell. Adams is a member of the AVN Hall of Fame. Early Life: She grew up in a small town near Baltimore, in Maryland, on the East Coast of the United States and came from a middle class family with liberal ideas. She notes that she wasn't brought up a prude. After school Tracey attended community college and became a radio disc jockey. In the hope of moving beyond provincial radio stations she relocated to California in 1981. There she attended broadcasting school and worked for a number of small stations and took acting lessons.To pay the bills though, she found herself doing a number of jobs. Tracey says that she did everything from straight modeling in print ads to selling mobile homes to driving a limo. Movie career: By 1984 Tracey modeling for the men’s magazines while also going to music school.  She's  been in almost all the European magazines and most of the American magazines. One of the photographer she had worked for asked if she was willing to do a movie.  Tracey was  hesitant about moving from soft core to hardcore as at the time she thought pornography “was just dirt.” But she needed to pay for her musician’s course. Her first  porn film was ‘Make My Night’ (1985). Tracey quickly became one of the top porn stars in the industry. She was reliable, professional, attractive and by porn standards. As Adam Film World wrote about her in 1987, Adams can "handle characters that few porn actresses dare attempt: she is convincing as a woman of education, culture, breeding; she can play a successful author (Lust on the Orient Express); a rich socialite (Sins of the Wealthy 2); an Indian princess (Soft, Warm Rain); mother to a college-age lad (2002: A Sex Odyssey); a slick hooker (Jacqueline). Fellow porn actor Jerry Butler would later remember that Tracey acts like she’s involved in the sex. But as soon as the camera stops rolling Tracey becomes  a real businesswoman. In mid 80's she moved to Europe.  Tracey worked in Germany with Terressa Orlowski, in Italy with Cicciolina, and in France for legendary director Marc Dorcel. It was in France that she really established herself, and she appeared in almost a dozen Marc Dorcel films, alongside established European porn stars such as Rocco Siffredi and Laura Valerie. She also  worked on films for some of the biggest companies in the industry  including  VCA and Evil Angel among others. Adams left the pornography business in the late 1980s to try to break into the world of mainstream R-rated B-movies, but her attempted leap into a 'straight' career didn't pan out. Adams soon returned to the hard core arena where she was a star. The last appearance by Tracey in an adult film was in the 1999 Bizarre release, High Heeled Dreams, and by the year 2000 she had retired completely from the adult industry.
