The Mysterious Life Of Adult Film Queen Mindy Rae! Was Her Sister Also A Porn Star?

What Happened To 80’s Porn Star Mindy Rae?

That’s the question I was asked by a reader of this blog – and since he enticed me with the fact that Mindy also had a sister in the adult film industry as well, I was intrigued enough to try and find out!

Thanks to “Bad Garret” for the suggestion: I have been profiling some of the Adult Movie Queens from the 70’s and 80’s – and for many of them, their career ends and they vanish.

Even terrific websites like “The Railto Report” doesn’t have stories on them. So who was Mindy Rae and what happened to her?

And is this her XXX-rated Sister?

I will solve the “mystery” of Mindy Rae right now: she vanished and there is NOTHING online about her since her time oncamera in adult film!

One reason it’s so difficult to find info on some of these performers – they go by some nay different names!

Here are other names that Mindy Rae used while in the adult film business:

Amanda Kramer | Mandy Kramer | Randi Kramer | Randy Kramer |Mandy | Amanda Rae | Mandy Rae | Mindy Ray | Mindy Rey | Amanda Starr | Mandy Starr

Mindy first showed up on adult film screens in 1983, just as the adult VHS video boom was in full swing.

She was everywhere under all sorts of names, in “direct to VHS” stuff like “Big Melons 4”, “Cherry Busters” and “Big Busty 8” – many of the titles made special reference to her breast size!

Most of her work was in “direct to video” movies – this was after film was no longer being used for most projects, and adult theaters were giving way to home video stores…

The Women Of Cell Block F”

I love that Mindy was in this XXX-take on the classic “women in prison” movie!

I have shared many stories from this genre, including one film that was as close to XXX-rated without getting that rating as any movie I’ve seen!

Trust me when I tell you this is a wild wild ride!

As for Mindy, she had a nice run of fun adult romps with some very well known co-stars:

“Beverly Hills Exposed”

This one has a serviceable plot: an Executive living in Beverly Hills tries to use sex to convince a potential buyer of his company to close a deal.

Adult legends Colleen Brennan and Harry Reems starred doing his one: Colleen was also mainstream cult star Sharon Kelly:

Colleen / Sharon was vivacious and free-spirited – see her career highlights here:

Mindy had dozens of credits, but there is literally NOTHING about her online anywhere. Here are more of her films:

From what little I could find, it seems that she left the adult-film business for good in early 1987. During her career she appeared in over 60 adult films, and because it was the VHS era, there were plenty of compilations of her work released as well:

Mindy’s XXX-Rated Sister!

While there is literally no supporting information about the sisters, Mindy apparently had a sister named Robin, who was also an adult performer – using the name “Athena Star”:

Athena had more than 40 adult film credits during that same era!

According to one adult film site, the sisters both dropped out of the XX-rated film business in 1987 and were never heard from again!

Because of the VHS era, many compilations were done for adult stars, and Mindy was no different…these ended up on DVD as well!

One of the most popular video compilations in the XXX-rated world is this one:

There are countless “Golden Age” compilations like this one, including all of the superstars like Christy Canyon:

She was such an Icon she had two!

See why by clicking on my profile of this incredible empowered woman here:

Here’s another Icon who was an 80’s Superstar:

Ginger Lynn Allen even managed to crossover into mainstream cult films as well – see all of her best highlights here:

Unfortunately, many adult stars have not been so lucky:

Shauna Grant was also a hugely popular Adult Actress, but she had a shocking, tragic end…you can read more of her compelling story by clicking on my link here:

There are many Adult Stars who work int he industry for a brief period of time before disappearing:

Adult Actress Ricki O’Neal worked for a year and then dropped out of sight!

Here’s her story:

And what about this “pink lady?”

Christine De Shaffer was one of the busiest supporting Actresses in the business – see her wild story here:

  1. So many of those one-time porn stars seem to disappear without trace. I often wonder if something very bad happened to them, and their bodies were not found.
    The way they changed the titles of genuine films into porn references was always hilarious though.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Thanks for the post! So many of these stars were so underpaid. At least Christy and Ginger made some money later in their careers.

  3. Just looked her up. Can’t believe some of these actresses don’t even have a Wikipedia entry, but maybe that’s they way they want it.

    • I think for many they just move away from this career – and since they don’t use their real names, the “Mindy Rae” character is lost to time…some, like Christy Canyon, are proud of their past and bravo to them for that! Thanks for commenting, always great to hear from you!
