Spicy redhead Serena, who had a famous love affair with Jamie Gillis in the late '70s and early '80s, appeared in adult films from 1975-84.

A teenage runaway to Los Angeles in 1975, Serena worked as a waittress until a porn make-up artist discovered her. A redhead with creamy pale skin, she appeared in over 100 productions including The Ecstasy Girls. One of her final performances came in the 1985 Howard Ziehm loop carrier Hot Cookies. Visitors to the back room of Nelson's Bookstore watch her bring erotic paintings to life.

Serena just seemed to show up in Hollywood, as a flower-child, in the mid-seventies. I first became aware of her when Playboy did a story on the growing adult film business in 1976. There was a gorgeous strawberry blond with an incredibly cute overbite and a body to die for.

It was lust at first sight. Serena was all over the pages of the L.A. tabloid sex papers, especially the old L.A. Star. Even then she had gained a reputation for being an "I'll do anything" kind of porno princess.

I must confess an early infatuation with this young lady, so perhaps my observations are somewhat biased. Serena was one of the first to do it all. I still have some loops from that period showing our girl banging her heart out in the back of a pickup truck, and remember seeing a nifty five man gang bang with plenty of facials before anyone else ever thought of doing it on film. Serena always maintained her girlish, sweet good looks and smiled as if she loved every minute of it. Anal, double penatration, you name it and she was your girl. I'll never forget the first time I saw her do an interracial thing with Johnny Keyes and John Holmes. This chick could fuck. Of course there was the famous loop with Serena taking on two she-males with apparent delight. She always had a taste for the kinky side of the street. If you can find those old issues of the L.A. Star you'll see that Serena was the first golden shower queen as well, and don't be fooled by the faked gs shots that Fred Lincoln put together later on.

Serena was a long time roommate of Jamie Gillis and I've heard and read stories of their playful days in New York City where Serena would flash passersby from their apartment window. Jamie, as we all know, has always been one of the kinkiest guys in the jizz biz, so for Selena to hang in for so long with Jamie, we know she had to have her priorities straight. Ahhh, the joys of the pre-AIDS, sexual revolution good times.

I've traced Serena's film career as far back as 1975 to a little piece
called "Honey Pie", numerous Swedish Erotica films, now tapes, and 1979's "For the Love of Pleasure". Platinum Press touted a
low-grade-quality film called "Pregnant Punishment", as starring Serena, but I sent my $25 or so in, and never received anything. She apparently hung around until about 1984 for one last fling before the cameras in "Cherry-etts For Hire", and then alledgedly headed north to San Francisco to marry and settle down. Serena met and married Thomass Blaquelourd with whom she filmed some loops. The marriage didn't last but did produce a daughter named Lucy Sky Diamond Blaquelourd, born in
1977. Serana was last known to be living in the Bay Area and working as an artist.
For a real trip down memory lane, and for the pure porn partisan I
suggest you look for the following and catch one of the industries true
pioneers and groundbreakers, the 5'8" strawberry blond Serena. As we near the millinium and are making lists of just about the best of everything, I'll put Serena at the top of the list for cutest face with
the most wonderful overbite of the century. It's well worth the trouble
to hunt for, and find, 1982's "Inspirations", wherein Serena takes on the two she-males mentioned earlier, as well as 1980's "Ultraflesh", to see her take on a small person, or a height challenged person, or as we
used to say, a midget.

"Every Which Way She Can" (1981).
"Serena vs. Mai Lin" (1982).
"Taxi Girls" (1979).
"Heavenly Desires" (1979).
"Afternoon Delights" (1980) released in 1980 but contains some very early and very young Serena, if you can find it.
"The Ecstasy Girls" (1979) Don't miss this.
"Blonde in Black Silk" (1979).
"800 Fantasy Lane" (1979) Must see.
"Insatiable" (1980) Great lez scene with Marilyn Chambers in a hot tub.

Serena also had a moment in the sun in the major motion picture release of 1979, "10" starring Dudley Moore, Julie Andrews, and Bo Derrick. Only on camera for a second, but you can catch that overbite easily as Dudley peeps through his telescope at the orgy, of one of his neighbors, across the canyon in L.A.
