Deep Throat 2: Lights, camera, suction!



Linda was offered the role by Damiano after reciting "Mary Had a Little Lamb" in a screentest. However she nearly didn't get the job because Gerard Damiano's partner, gangter Louis "Butchie" Peraino, wanted a big breasted blonde for the part. Chuck Traynor didn't want to lose Linda's $1200 fee, so he talked the 300 pound Butchie into supporting Linda, by getting her to suck him off.
The majority of the film was shot at the motel the crew was booked into in Miami, because the location scout couldn't find a location in time. One of the crew, the grip, was called Herbert Streicher. When the male lead didn't show up, Damiano paid Streicher an extra $100 to take over and Herbert Streicher became the famous porn star Harry Reems. The plot revolves around Linda going to see a doctor because she can't orgasm, who discovers her clitoris is in her throat. Linda is then hired to make housecalls as a sexual psychotherapist. Highlights of the film include one of her patients using her as a glass and drinking Coke out of a glass dildo in her pussy, and the frequent inconsistencies where she rubs her clitoris during intercourse - even though it's supposed to be located in her throat.
Damiano spent three months editing the film, which was unheard of in the porn industry at the time. He sent his cameraman around New York recording the sound of church bells ringing. Damiano himself went down to the National Archives in Washington and told them he was making an industrial film to obtain footage of the Saturn V taking off. When Linda comes for the first time, the director splices in shots of rocket going off, fireworks exploding and bells chiming.
