atrapat (112) I never watch anything pre-2000s. Late 90s at most. If I know the model is deceased, I also know the cause of it and it's not likely it was old age at her home surrounded by her loved ones. I might enjoy watching some content but it's hard to get out of my mind how she died.

jd1961 (95) Good question!

If it's from the old days, I like it. Like Shauna Grant, and Savannah or Rene Bond.

The newer days though give me the creeps. For instance, DDF still has all the Lea Demae sets, she died of brain cancer a few years ago, and I couldn't download them.

Yeah, Lea DeMae I saw on Euro-pornstars, April 11 this year. And there was a bit of Sheridan coming out somewhere, I think, shortly after her fatal automobile accident one winter night on one of the Czech "D" roads that connect to Prague, back in I think it was 2006.

And you might even remember Elisa Bridges, a Playboy playmate who died at age 28 in February 2002. There's a Wikipedia page on her and about that, among other things. At the time, she had been showing up on Mac&Bumble.

My own poll response is that it bothers me somewhat, which is a sneekily inconclusive answer as far as whether one keeps the materials on the girl or not and whether one gets more recently posted stuff. (Of course, the allowed length of a poll response item is part of it. Not that I'm complaining -- I'm just pointing that out.)

I haven't thrown out anything of the girls that I know have died. I still marvel at how they were. Chloe Jones was a knockout, for instance. (And as you can see, her website lives on.) However, when I remember that they are no longer with us, and always cut off at such a young age, it just makes me sad. So I don't view them more than, say, once a year or less often.

But it's interesting how whether we know they're actually alive in real life or not matters. It makes the difference in my mind as to whether there is a living person to associate with the one I'm seeing in the videos and the photos.

Maybe it just matters if we think about it. Trite, but true. I can look at old glamour photos of Loretta Young and say, "Wow, what a beauty!" and leave it at that.

It also matters who's making money off of them.

The Chloe Jones site is CREEPY, I think I'll leave a comment.

It makes it seem as if she is alive: Visit MY store, MY friends. I think that's sleazy.

Davit (46) Very sombre subject this, but I guess it's 'anything goes' if it's an intelligent debate.

I selected 'it bothers me somewhat', but I suppose it would make a difference if I knew that the passing away was completely unrelated to the porn. So if a porn actress discovered she was dying but was proud of her work and wished to be remembered fondly in the industry, that would be completely different to some poor soul getting drugged up and slitting her wrists in a hotel bathroom cos her life was so shit.

Even so, I don't think I'd want to watch a deceased porno star regardless, to be honest. Just feels wrong... and...yet so right....

No! It's wrong. ;)

Quite different to Anna Malle's site (site not listed at PU, btw). She died in a car accident in January 2006. The site still accepts new signups (45USD for 2 months recurring) but the homepage consists mainly of a note on her death and several condolence and remembrance texts from industry people. The note on her death was there almost from the day she died.

IMHO, that's the decent way to do things. Someone may still want to see the content but the site is also a tribute to her and her work.

I suppose it's sleazy, but on the other hand, we don't complain about "Sam's Club," do we? Named after Sam Walton, the guy who started WalMart. He's been gone for 16 years ... And yet, you do have a point in that they probably don't have standup posters of him asking people to visit "my store." Whoa, that would be really eerie!

I wouldn't know who runs Chloe's site. Maybe it's part of her estate? Maybe the funds coming in help her children (assuming she had children)? Charities? I wouldn't know; just wondering aloud.

That could be true even though she died penniless, as you said.

One thing really caught my eye: Check out the page here at PU for the ChloeJones site and note that Maggie of TBP says that one con is "No interaction with Chloe" (!)

Denner (233) Did not need to preview answers - this is a Drooler poll, for sure - and again a fine one.
Stumbled over some excelent videos of the sweet Savannah recently. I just adore that american beauty. And what a shame - dying in a suicide car-crash i july 1994 - I always wonder about the reasons in a case like this.
And yes - this is just one reason why my answer to this poll is:
It bothers me somewhat.
I cannot get turned on by her material in the same way as before her death! Some psychologist may get a hell of a lot out of that, but personally I think it's something to do with normal human feelings.....

pat362 (367) I have a harder time watching a star, if she took her own life. Time does make it easier. If it was an accident or health issue that is one thing, but suicide introduces the guilt factor into it. We don't like to think about it, but was our watching her movies part of the reasons for her suicide or would she have done it regardless of the porn life. IAFD has a full list of stars that are no longer with us, but Shauna Grant, Megan Leigh, Savannah are the ones that come to mind.

Toadsith (48) Sorry, folks, I understand there are sentimental and nostalgic attitudes about this among you - but I really feel this is a silly topic.

Am I to believe that people can't enjoy "Some Like It Hot" the same way anymore because Monroe is dead? The same goes for porn, it is just entertainment. I think you are tying way too much of an emotional connection to these stars if you feel you can't watch their work after they've passed on. People die peacefully and tragically; it happens. What matters is that their work lives on and is enjoyed by future generations, even if it is "just porn".

Unless, you mean for me to take the question literally. In that case: Of course it bothers me! Zombies are NOT sexy!

Denner, I recalled that Savannah committed suicide AFTER the car crash. Talk at the time was that she was going to be scarred from the crash. Not trusting my old memory, I looked it up and found a similar story at: Wikipedia

hi jd1961

I heard Lea was an Olympic Athlete, diving? not speaking ill of those deceased I did see some statements that she had AIDS...

Another tragedy is Chloe Jones...

whilst AIDS is a risk in the industry, I'm sure drink drugs and depression are other contributors

Drooler (218) REPLY TO #15 - Denner :

It's bad for girls who don't think beyond their present careers, and maybe they just don't believe enough in themselves. Someone with a deeper sense of self-worth, or even just curiosity about what could happen in the future wouldn't just end it like Savannah did. But being caught up in a drug-induced haze, maybe that was a key part of it.

The ones that are self-resourceful enough do pretty well. Thinking of Jenna Jameson, Tila Nguyen (has a reality show), Asia Carrera (helps to have a high IQ), Sandra Shine ... These are girls who move on to the "next step."

nygiants03 (162) I actually never thought about it. But for me I would lose interest in seeing it, I think sites should take the material off after deceased.

It sure is good that some of these girls make something of themselves "later on".
BTW the cute Tila Nguyen: Did she ever do hc - never found it, anyway.
