ANNIE SPRINKLE




Annie M. Sprinkle (non-accredited) PhD (born Ellen F. Steinberg; July 23, 1954) is an American former prostitute, stripper, pornographic actress, cable television host, porn magazine editor, writer and sex film producer. She received a BFA in photography from the School of Visual Arts in 1986 and earned a doctorate in Human Sexuality from the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco in 1992. Currently, Dr. Sprinkle works as a performance artist and sex educator. Sprinkle, who is bisexual, married her long-time partner, Beth Stephens, in Canada on January 14, 2007.


Life and career

Sprinkle was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She is known as the "prostitute and porn star turned sex educator and artist." Her best known theater and performance art piece is her Public Cervix Announcement, in which she invites the audience to "celebrate the female body" by viewing her cervix with a speculum and flashlight. She also performed The Legend of the Ancient Sacred Prostitute, in which she did a "sex magic" masturbation ritual on stage. She has toured one-woman shows internationally for 17 years, some of which were are titled Post Porn Modernist, Annie Sprinkle's Herstory of Porn, Hardcore from the Heart, and, currently, Exposed; Experiments in Love, Sex, Death and Art.

The first porn star known to have earned a Ph.D., Dr Sprinkle received her doctorate in Human Sexuality from the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco. Her publications, spanning more than three decades, are studied in courses at numerous universities, in theater history, women's studies, and film studies courses. She also is a faculty member at The New School of Erotic Touch.

Annie Sprinkle began working at the ticket booth in an adult theater at 17, and assisted the theater owner in the making of short porn flicks. She received her break in acting when a porn actress failed to show up for filming and she offered to fill in. Annie's first porn movie was Teenage Deviate, which was released in 1975. Perhaps her best known featured role was in Deep Inside Annie Sprinkle (co-directed by Sprinkle and sexploitation veteran Joseph W. Sarno) which was the #2 grossing porn film of 1981.

In 1991, Sprinkle created the Sluts and Goddesses workshop, which became the basis for her 1992 production The Sluts and Goddesses Video Workshop – Or How To Be A Sex Goddess in 101 Easy Steps, which was co-produced and co-directed with videographer Maria Beatty, and featured music by composer Pauline Oliveros.

She later starred in Nick Zedd's experimental films War Is Menstrual Envy (1992), Ecstasy In Entropy (1999), and Electra Elf: The Beginning (2005).



She has appeared in over 200 films, including hard and softcore pornography, B movies, loops, numerous documentaries, and four HBO Real Sex programs. She has produced, directed, and starred in several of her own films, such as Annie Sprinkle's Herstory of Porn. Her work in these films has earned her a spot on the Adult Star Path of Fame in Edison, New Jersey.

Sprinkle's work has always been about sexuality, with a political, spiritual, and artistic bent. In December 2005, she committed to doing seven years of art projects about love with her wife and art collaborator, Beth Stephens. They call this their Love Art Laboratory. Part of their project is to do an experimental art wedding each year, and each year has a different theme and color. The seven-year theme was adapted to their project by invitation of artist Linda M. Montano.

Sprinkle and Stephens have been exploring their ecosexuality since they married the Earth and took it as their lover in a ceremony presided over by Guillermo Gómez-Peña on May 2008 in Santa Cruz. They also created a new field of research they coined Sexecology—which explores the places where sexology and ecology intersect. They co-created an experimental theater piece, Dirty Sexecology—25 Ways to Make Love to the Earth.

According to John Heidenry, Annie Sprinkle was the lover of the Dutch anarchist Willem de Ridder, and of the pornographer Marco Vassi.

Annie Sprinkle on Sacred Sex


An interview with Annie Sprinkle in 1996 in Montreal, Canada. Porn star, film maker, artist and educator Annie Sprinkle discusses the spiritual side of sex in an Interview by Jen MacIntyre. Camera operator Dannielle Dyson.





No existe nadie en la historia del porno con mayor compromiso por la libertad sexual que Annie Sprinkle.

Actriz atípica durante más de un decenio, Sprinkle ha pasado a la historia por su concepción bizarra de las escenas sexuales, una visión del mundo que ha llevado hasta sus últimas consecuencias en sus espectáculos en vivo.

Por su condición de activista de la sexualidad, se puede afirmar que Annie Sprinkle es algo más que una actriz de cine X. De carácter tímido durante en su infancia y adolescencia, Sprinkle creció en un suburbio de Los Ángeles, fue bailarina y "girl scout". A los 17 años perdió la virginidad, a los 18 era prostituta y a los 19 entró en el mundo del porno por casualidad. Trabajaba como taquillera en una sala X y, en una decisión judicial sin precedentes, fue obligada a declarar como testigo en el proceso que se abrió en Memphis contra los responsables de “Garganta profunda”. Allí conoció a Gerard Damiano, con el que mantuvo una breve relación sentimental, y, desde entonces, empezó a trabajar en diversos oficios dentro de los rodajes de porno. Un buen día se animó a participar en una escena erótica y, en los diez años siguientes, fue actriz porno de profesión. Vivió de cerca los albores del género y se especializó en realizar escenas que otras actrices se negaban a hacer (lluvia dorada, sadomasoquismo). Sus explosivas declaraciones ("mi motivación para estar en la Tierra es el placer"), su temperamento alegre y divertido, y su condición de musa de la contracultura californiana le granjearon un respeto en la profesión que ella explotó al máximo en espectáculos sexuales a lo largo de los Estados Unidos .

Trabajó en el mundo del porno de manera activa hasta mediados de los 80, cuando ya había iniciado una fructífera carrera como "educadora sexual" en conferencias en las que, aparte de dar su punto de vista sobre la sexualidad, enseñaba su clítoris a la audiencia. Vivió un sonado romance con el transexual Les Nichols, posó en fotografías artísticas para Eric Kroll y Annie Leibovitz, dirigió y produjo una serie de películas X completamente atípicas (en algunas mostraba imágenes de ella misma durante su niñez y en otras ofrecía sólo primerísimos planos de su vagina) y se consideraba a sí misma como la reencarnación de una diosa sexual de la nueva era llamada Anya. Convertida en portavoz femenina del universo X, Annie Sprinkle vive en Los Ángeles dedicada a sus espectáculos de cariz sexual en compañía de Andre Dworkin y Catherine McKinnon.
