This site is not a model agency and this is not a directory of current models. EGAFD is intended as a resource of historical as well as current reference.
This database is, and always will be, far from complete. It should be seen as complementary to iafd and imdb. Therefore a certain bias is present in the database.
First there is a concentration on the preference of the compiler which is for 'films' rather than 'gonzo' or any other form of plotless porn. Second there is a bias towards French films reflecting the state of the compiler's knowledge rather than an absolute preference. Third, a strategy has been adopted to cut down the work.
Appearances by actresses which are already listed on iafd in general have not been included. This in practice means American films and Private releases. However, there will be a large overlap with films listed on imdb, though they will list many films which we do not. In general we have included titles already listed on imdb where we have something to add to their information, even if it is only confirmation from having watched the film or seen information on it elsewhere. That said, we have filled many of their gaps and corrected some of their errors, though this is not a criticism of what is an indispensable resource.
There will also be many errors and duplication of actress' pages. This is because one of the major sources of information has been the websites of suppliers of videos and DVDs. It is the latter which may cause a girl to appear more than once in the database. This is because the distinction between hardcore and softcore films was very blurred in the 70s and early 80s as a result of several factors:.
In addition, the cast lists of some softcore films are not necessarily complete. Much information has been gleaned from the many websites of retailers, both modern and specialists in vintage films. Many of these are in the links section. Attempts have been made to cross check, e. Help on some identifications of Italian and some French actresses has been given by Rocco D'Amato, but the huge gaps and errors in this database on Italian porn from before can be filled and no doubt many errors corrected by referring to his book, Dizionhard , which we have not yet seen.
A review for those who can read Italian can be found at Deltadivenere. The Colonel has helped with lists of his film collection, especially his favourites, Deborah Wells and Luana Borgia , and by passing on information from others, e. Walter Burns has been very helpful, identifying actresses and pointing us towards the very informative reviews of Kafka on rame.
Our thanks and apologies to anyone we might have missed. Finally, please note that none of those whose help has been acknowledged here are responsible for any errors in the database. All rights reserved. EGAFD must be consulted about the reproduction of any materials from www.
The Question of Completeness and Other Databases This database is, and always will be, far from complete. The Definition of an Adult Film "Adult films" means hardcore films, but we have also included many softcore films and actresses who never did hardcore. This is because the distinction between hardcore and softcore films was very blurred in the 70s and early 80s as a result of several factors: Many films were made in two or more versions, even the soft versions could be cut in some countries.
A few softcore actresses went on to do hardcore work e. Karin Schubert and a few hardcore actresses appeared in softcore films and even straight films - and not only after they had given up hardcore work. Some softcore actresses, notably Laura Gemser and Dirce Funari , gave softcore performances in hardcore films.
In addition some actresses may have used a Clintonesque definition of hardcore, performing oral sex but not vaginal and in the case of Heather Deeley in Diversions , vaginal but not oral. And finally, in more than a few cases it is uncertain whether hardcore versions of films exist.
