Vanessa del Rio is the all-time queen of the Latina sex stars, a lusty, exotic slice of mocha-skinned sensuality. Her name is synonymous with fiery, unrestrained sex at its rawest. Vanessa made her erotic debut in 1974’s ‘CHAIN DOLL,’ and was a top star right up until her retirement in 1986. Her enthusiasm for all kinds of wild sex made her one of the most bankable of 70’s and 80’s stars. Producers and fans knew that the name Vanessa del Rio meant sexual abandon, plain and simple. Vanessa del Rio appeared in nearly 100 films and videos during her 12-year career and never disappointed fans of lust-crazed Latin erotica. A member of the X-Rated Critics Organization’s Performers Hall of Fame, Vanessa is still one of the best-loved, most fondly remembered sex stars of all time, a bad girl with a feverish hunger for nasty, all-out sex. Vanessa del Rio has been mentioned in countless RAP Music Videos appeared on various talk shows and played herself on ABC’s N.Y.P.D Blue.
