Seka Classic Porn Videos

Seka is a legendary pornographic actress (or "sex performer", as she prefers). Born Dorothiea Hundley on April 15, 1954 in Radford, Virginia, USA. Seka appeared in many XXX-rated hardcore adult films during the late-1970s and 1980s becoming one of the international adult film industry's best known and most popular pornstars of her era.

Contrary to many urban myths, Seka was neither foreign born nor Swedish. She is of Irish heritage and the misconception of Scandinavian origins seems to arise from her appearances in the Swedish Erotica film series.


Early Life

Seka was born Dorothiea "Dottie" Hundley and attended Hopewell High School in Hopewell, Virginia where as a teenager she won several local beauty pageants including "Miss Hopewell High School" and "Miss Southside Virginia".

As Ms. Hundley, Seka owned and operated several adult bookstores in Virginia and Maryland in the 1970s. After concluding that she could do a better job than the women featured in the material she was trying to sell to customers, she moved from Virginia to Las Vegas, Nevada. While in Vegas, she did her first nude photo layout for a magazine, which resulted in her first offer to star in an 8mm sex film loop.

Seka later moved to Los Angeles, California with her soon-to-be husband Ken Yontz whom she married in 1978. Early in her career Seka used the stage name "Sweet Alice" as well as other aliases, including "Lynda Grasser."


Rise to porn Fame

Hundley adopted the screen name "Seka" from a female blackjack dealer in Vegas who she knew. She became a star just as porn was making the transition from film to video. Seka's first performance was in the 1978 movie Dracula Sucks (a.k.a. Lust At First Bite or Blonde Fire), where she starred opposite male Hall Of Fame Porn star John Holmes. Seka appeared in 24 films in 1980 alone, and another 37 films in 1981, the most important and prolific years of her career. While her on-screen success in adult films was meteoric, her life away from porn was marred by a messy divorce from Ken Yontz in 1980.

Seka's on-screen sexual performances included lesbian trysts, anal sex, double-penetration, and use of sex toys including vibrators, dildos and strap-ons. She was also known for sometimes shaving her pubic hair, some 15 to 20 years before the practice became common among American pornstars.

Jamie Gillis, who performed with Seka in numerous films, believed that she was "a bit above porn" describing her as a "white-trash queen". Seka was also known in the adult industry as "The Platinum Princess" and on the box cover of her film Inside Seka (1980) she is referred to as "the Marilyn Monroe of porn", a quote taken from High Society Magazine. Of her fellow performers, Seka lists her favorite male screen partners as John Holmes, Mike Ranger, Paul Thomas and Jamie Gillis. In terms of women, she named Veronica Hart her favorite lesbian costar, who is quoted as saying "as long as I have a face, Seka has a place to sit." Seka also lists Kay Parker and Candida Royalle as favorite female screen partners.


Retirement

By the early-1980s Seka had become arguably the number one female pornstar of all time. After 1982, at the height of her fame, she took a step back from her adult film career, claiming "they wouldn't pay her what she wanted," and turned to stripping and nude modeling while running her own lucrative fan club. More recently, she also admitted that the HIV epidemic in the mid-1980s contributed to her staying away from the hardcore sex scene, "that's why I don't make movies any more...I like to live."

However in the early '90s she did return to the porn industry to perform in a few final movies, her last being "American Garter" - despite being only 40, she was nearly unrecognizable from her earlier appearance, having gained weight and showing considerable sun damage to her skin. She later stated that staying in shape for porn was difficult as "she liked to eat".

Possessing an abundance of charisma and popularity with her fans, Seka achieved a kind of underground cult celebrity status and (like Nina Hartley) she has appeared on television talk shows as an advocate and spokesperson in defense of the porn industry. Seka and former porn star Jerry Butler appeared on the TV show 330, hosted by Chuck Henry. Seka talked about how much she enjoyed doing porn and that financial compensation was only a secondary issue. Jerry interrupted, "Oh really? Then why is your fee between $15,000-$30,000 dollars per movie?" Chuck then asked Jerry about the use of drugs in the industry. Butler admitted that many actors, actresses, producers, and directors use drugs because they are under a lot of pressure. When Seka said "I can't imagine why people in the business need drugs", Butler fired back, "What about 1978? I heard you were in drug rehabilitation for a whole year."

Seka has readily admitted on her website that she did have a drug problem early in her career, and sought treatment. Many in the adult film industry remember Seka as a professional who came to work, gave great sexual performances, and did what she was required to do for a film script, but only within her limits, as she often told producers and directors before walking off the set.

In 1997, Seka hosted a radio talk show in Chicago called Let's Talk About Sex on Saturday Nights from 10pm-2am on 97.9FM, The Loop.

In 2002 Seka was the focus of the documentary film Desperately Seeking Seka. The premise finds Swedish filmmakers Christian Hallman and Magnus Paulsson on a quest to find the porn legend and ask for an interview. Since its completion the film has toured the international film festival circuit and is now available on DVD.

In 2005 Seka moved from Chicago to Kansas City. She operates her fan club through her own web site. In February 2007, she gave an interview with the Kansas City-based magazine The Pitch where she stated she had just shot her first hardcore scene in nearly 15 years, available as on-line pay per view.

Seka is considered a female pioneer in the adult film industry, a female adult film star who believed her career was something to be proud of. Seka was professionally demanding as a female artist in a man's business world, which also gained her much respect, and no doubt helped with her great achievements in the adult industry sector aside from her screen appeal and great beauty. She is known for her keen and professional business savvy, both then and now.


Cultural references

The character "Amber Waves" played by Julianne Moore in the film Boogie Nights, a fictional girlfriend of the John Holmes character that was a composite of several women in his life, was partly based on Seka, according to the film's director, Paul Thomas Anderson.
