Vanessa del Rio should have been the next big thing back in 1974, but in 1974 ethnic stars had yet to shine. Undeterred, Vanessa took any role they’d give her, because, amazingly, she was there for the sex more than the money. Fans quickly made her a top box office draw and America’s first Latina sex star. Retired since 1986, Vanessa del Rio remains a sexual icon who cuts across all ethnic boundaries. This book explores her life through erotic images and her own titillating words. And if that doesn’t sell you, how about the steamy DVD that’s included?
