“Pink Lady” Christine De Shaffer! This “Adult” Bombshell Worked In The “Golden Age” Of Porn!

Meet Christine de Shaffer!

My “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” looks at one of the most overlooked “stars” of the “golden age of porn”, Christine de Shaffer.

Bear with me on the quality of these first few photos. There are times when it’s difficult to find any good photos of 70’s Actresses that aren’t too graphic to share. There are, however, terrific ones that showcase her work!

Christine De Shaffer was born on March 27, 1954 in Hermosa Beach, California. 

De Shaffer first began performing in explicit movies in the mid-1970’s. She ultimately made more than 25 films – and worked with some of the biggest stars in adult film.

After going by a different name for her first few films, she began using her own name in 1977 with this film:

What a title for a film!

Reviews were good for this, one calling the film “a fast-paced, almost plot less rock and roll adult film musical set during a crazy night in the lives of a dozen or more teenagers, and other people during a night out on the town.”

After this appearance, Christine was off an running!

She also appeared in the film “Fantasm Comes Again” that same year:

Christine ended up working with a lot of great names in films like these:

The 1979 film “The Pink Ladies” was packed with Adult film legends.

Both Samantha Fox and Kandi Barbour were in this one, and sadly, Kandi had a tragic life:

As you can see form these credits, De Shaffer worked ons one classic films from the golden age of porn, like this one:

“Hot Lunch!”

In this 1978 film, Andrew gets fired from his job and his unfaithful wife wants to divorce him.

Christine plays his Attorney Luana, who gets him a new job as an encyclopedia salesman so he can pay her the legal fees he owes!

Look who also starred in this one – it’s Desiree!

Desiree Cousteau was an Adult Film legend, thanks to her incredible debut in this classic:

That same year Christina starred in this great adult gem:

“Hot And Saucy Pizza Girls!”

What a cast!

Desiree Cousteau stars in this one as well – and there’s Johnny C. Holmes AKA “Johnny Wadd” and more….and boy, does Desiree know how to make an entrance:

A money-losing pizzeria starts offering more than just pizza on their deliveries, running afoul of a competing fried chicken outle!

That’s a terrific cast and Christine fit right in – in fact, some of the best photos of her came when she exuded an attitude and confidence that matched her co-stars:

Christine posed in a variety of men’s magazine – as I said earlier, it’s difficult to find photos of her that aren’t graphic in nature, but if you want those, they are plentiful:

In 1980, she appeared in this film:

“Justine: A Matter Of Innocence”

As I said before, Christine starred in a number of films that were packed with other big adult stars as well..it truly was “the Golden Age of Porn.”

Christine made films until 1981, then came back for one final effort in 1987 before leaving the business in 1987.

De Shaffer isn’t as well known as many of her co-stars, but she had a great run of adult film…not much is known about her after she left the business, and sadly, she died at age 46 on February 24, 2001.

Adult Actresses seemed to have a difficult time transitioning out of the business, and many found it impossible to work in mainstream films – but it’s even more unusual for a mainstream Actress to go hardcore.

More recently, this popular TV Star went from “ABC” to “XXX”!

Maitland Ward has become one of adult cinema’s biggest stars today, after starting as a teenager on “Boy Meets World.”

Now, she’s a breakout adult film star! You can see her most recent films by clicking on my story here:

  1. Ah, the ‘Golden Age’ of porn! Thanks to the invention of the VHS tape of course. 🙂
    That really opened ‘Pandora’s Box’ at the time.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Surely someone knows something about what happened to Christine De Shaffer – with the amount of people that she worked with that are still around and have been interviewed, I can’t believe that someone doesn’t know anything.

    • I post these stories with the hope that someone will reach out with more information…in some cases, adult film performers don’t want to relive that time in their lives, especially if they’ve moved on and have abandoned that persona and name. Thanks for commenting!
