“I would like to have a protegee. Someone who’s a lot younger than myself, who I could train to be a porno star. Wait a minute, don’t say ‘porno star.’ I hate that term. Someone who I could turn into an erotic film star…There are a lot of pretty girls out there. Unfortunately, too few of them are willing to listen to advice and take criticism.” — Marilyn Chambers
