Candy Barr - Prostitute, Highest Paid Nude Stripper and America's First Pornstar

CommentscommentsViews25950 viewsShares Likes83 shares

Candy Barr lived up to the stereotype of Texas women. She had an attractive figure, shapely, firm tits, and an incredibly cute "girl next door" face that was amazingly photogenic. However, what set this stripper pornstar apart from her Lone Star State sisters was her attitude - she was brazen about her nude sexuality, and it showed in her as a prostitute, and in both stripping career and porn work during an era when both were very, very taboo.

Candy Barr was born Juanita Dale Slusher in Edna, Texas (USA) on July 6, 1935, to a harmonica-playing bricklayer and a homemaker. Her mother died when she was nine years old. When she was 13, Candy ran away from home and ended up in Dallas (USA), where she worked in a hotel. It was at this point that sex became a major influence in her life when this inexperienced girl started working as a prostitute.

Some reports indicate that she was forced into this line of work. In any event, she then got married at 14 to a professional safe-cracker, but the marriage ended in divorce when he was imprisoned. At this point, this wild woman also began working as a cocktail waitress and exotic dancer to make ends meet.

Candy Barr makes one of the first "blue" movies to get distributed coast to coast

This troublesome vixen then exploded onto the national stage when she appeared in one of the first nationally-distributed pornographic films, titled "Smart Alec" which was released in 1951. You can see Candy and her hairy pussy getting fucked in this sex movie only if you join Vintage Cuties now. Because of the wide distribution of this film, Candy Barr has been referred to as "America's first porn star". Why did she do it? The star herself has given inconsistent reasons. In some narratives she said she was flat broke and needed the money; in other reports this famous burlesque stripper said she was drugged and coerced into it.

Stills from this film appear pretty tame by contemporary porn standards. It just looks like two people fucking in a hotel room. However, a viewer has to put this movie in context. This is the early '50s, and conservative, stodgy Eisenhower America was all the rage. Thus, seeing Candy Barr's very shapely naked figure on screen riding a guy in reverse cowgirl would have sent the country into apoplectic fits. And thank God she was something to look at!

This famous stripper had decent, all natural tits that looked like they were a full C (D [UK, EU, FR/ES]) or D (DD [UK], E [EU, FR/ES]) cup size. Her face was cute and had a "Betty Boop" quality to it. Her most frequent pose was looking at the camera like it surprised her. Her body, however, was stunning. Her measurements were 38-22-36 (97-56-91 cm) on a 5 foot 4 inches (1.63 m), 119 lb (54 kg) frame. Her shapely legs ran right up to a curvaceous, smooth ass. Yummy indeed!

Luxurious Pornstar Candy Barr Likes to Seduce with Her Body

After the "cowboy hat, pasties, scant panties, a pair of pearl handled cap six-shooters in a holster strapped low on her hips, and cowboy boots.

Just how crazy was this lady? Consider this:

  • In January 1956, Candy Barr was charged with aggravated assault when she shot her second husband after he kicked in the door of her Dallas apartment. Strangely, her manager asked the sheriff to raise her bail to increase the publicity and sensationalism around the event. The charges were eventually dropped;
  • In October 1957, Dallas police raided her apartment, arrested her for possession of an ounce of marijuana, and she received a 15 year prison sentence (she would only serve 3 years and 4 months of this);
  • While her marijuana case was on appeal, she danced around the country in various men's clubs, and ended up becoming the girlfriend of notorious gangster Mickey Cohen;
  • Candy used her prison time to create poetry that was eventually released under the title "A Gentle Mind - Confused";
  • She worked for and ended up friends with Jack Ruby. Remember him? Ruby was the guy who shot and killed John Kennedy's assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald;
  • In the '70s, it was rumored Candy Barr had a salacious weekend affair with "Playboy" publisher Hugh Hefner.

This tantalizing Texan turns her notoriety into money, fame, and many, many suitors

Candy Barr's fame was so great that she was likely the best-paid stripper in her era, earning over $100,000 a year dancing nationwide. When the incredibly famous actress Joan Collins needed to perform a striptease scene in the 1959 movie "Seven Thieves", producers had her work with Candy to learn how to move just right.

Eventually, this vintage pornstar decided to hang up the adult entertainment career and returned to Texas (USA) to live out the rest of her life. Interestingly, she spent her graying years working in a grocery store in Edina, Texas. Candy Barr's illustrious (or infamous, depending how you look at it) career earned her an award as one of the "Perfect Texans" of all time from "Texas Monthly" magazine. However, she was past the limelight at this point. Despite calls to tell her story, Candy asked "to be left alone" by any media who asked for her audience. She died from pneumonia at the age of 70 in 2006.
