HINDSIGHT is one man's remarkably revealing story about sex and relationships, on the silver screen and in his private life. Howie Gordon (screen name Richard Pacheco) was an award-winning actor during The Golden Age of Porn, whose memoir does not duck the question, “What about love?”
With charm, passion, wit, and what may best be described as a crude elegance, Gordon's story takes us back to the fabled Baby Boomer era, when erotic films took a dramatic step closer to mainstream entertainment in America.
His memoir recounts scenes with Marilyn Chambers, Georgina Spelvin, Seka, Annette Haven, Kay Parker and many others. This was the heyday of John Holmes, John Leslie, Jamie Gillis and Anthony Spinelli, and they are all characters in what may prove to be the finest inside story to ever come out of the fascinating world of Adult Films during its Golden Age.
Ultimately, HINDSIGHT is a surprising love story: here in a triumph over incredible odds, is an unlikely victory for true love, common sense, and the American way. Full of pictures and high spirits – this memoir is a great read, whether you know the world of porn, or are just a curious reader.
"It was the time of storytelling with an X Rating, and there’s no one better to tell this story than my friend Howie Gordon."
- Whoopi Goldberg
“Howie Gordon writes about life as a porn star with more honesty, integrity and humor than any
other porn star, ever! You will laugh, cry, and fall in love. I hope his book gets made into a movie,
because it will be a one-of-a-kind blockbuster.”
