The Gloria Leonard Photo Club
Gloria Leonard is a global icon in adult entertainment, a true legend of the porn industry. The number 36 is important in Gloria Leonard's adult career. She started her porn career at the age of 36 and wound up appearing in 36 fuck films. Although she only appeared in 36 adult films (a small number by today's standards), Gloria is considered a pioneer in the adult business. She was destined to be a success in the adult business because of her training in the mainstream business world. Prior to working in porn, Gloria worked on Wall Street for three years as well as a public relations specialist for several entities.
When Gloria Leonard took a leap into porn she didn't look back. After a successful stint in front of the camera beginning in 1976, Gloria would later become the publisher of High Society magazine, which pioneered such novelties as nude celebrity photos and phone sex lines. Gloria remained at the helm of High Society for 14 years before stepping down in 1991. Her prior training in public relations made her well equipped to handle the rough and tumble world that was adult entertainment in the 1970s and early 1980s. Gloria fought off lawsuits from high profile celebrities such as Ann-Margaret and Barbara Streisand as well as a legal case before the Supreme Court.
Gloria Leonard is credited as establishing the first phone sex lines in the United States. In addition, she served as administrative director of the Adult Film Association from 1989 to 1992. In 1998, Gloria became President of the Free Speech Coalition. A staunch First Amendment advocate, Gloria Leonard is a member of both the AVN and XRCO Hall of Fame.
