Interview with Bobby Gordon
Titled, “Debbie Does My Dad,” the show will take the audience through vignettes of Gordon’s life, including the relationship with his parents, his discovery and interest in sex and the ultimate realization of the kind of man he wants to be.  “The purpose of this show is that it’s about redefining manhood where sexuality and sensitivity are not mutually exclusive,” Gordon said.  Bobby is the son of a porn star legend but a master in his own right. He is an san aspiring actor’s foray into pornography was in part from living out a fantasy of meeting an x-rated woman and having sex in an elevator, a dream that came following a childhood that Gordon said was spent as an overweight and repressed “Quasimodo,” later blossoming into “Robert Redford” during the sexual revolution.  “Women who were saying no were saying yes,” the elder Gordon said. “I had a lot to make up for.”  After filming more than 100 sex scenes and winning numerous awards, Gordon retired from the industry as a precaution shortly after cases of AIDS were reported in the United States in the 1980s. He became an AIDS information officer and started a second career as a writer. Along with his wife, Ashley, a marriage and family therapist, the couple remained in Berkeley where they raised three children, the youngest of whom is Bobby.  When it came to talking about sex and his career, Gordon was open with his children and gradually disclosed information. He recalls the time when both his daughters, then ages 12 and 10, found out about his films.

Lianne Young interviews Howey Gordon aka Ricard Pacheco
Richard Pacheco (born Howard Marc Gordon; May 5, 1948) is an American former pornographic film and video actor, writer and director who retired from the X-rated business in the mid-1980s. He appeared in more than 100 x-rated films and videos. He has won multiple adult film awards for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Director. He was Playgirl magazine's Man of the Year in 1979 as Howie Gordon. In 1978, he was offered his first professional erotic film role in The Candy Stripers (released 1978) for $200 per day. Thus began his pornographic career. He appeared in that first film under the name "McKinley Howard", and used many aliases until Anthony Spinelli's Talk Dirty to Me (1980), in which he co-starred as "Richard Pacheco". When that movie became a groundbreaking success, he kept the pseudonym for the box office value it began to accrue. In November 1984, Pacheco stopped appearing in porn movies without condoms in reaction to his wife's concerns about the growing AIDS epidemic. This cost him most of his adult acting job offers, and became an effective forced retirement from pornographic acting. He worked in non-sex roles, and as an assistant director to John Leslieuntil 1986. He only directed one film himself, 1987's Careful, He May Be Watching, starring Seka, but that one won the Best Film award and won him the Best Director award from AVN Awards 1988.
