WHERE ARE THEY NOW? – Constance Money

She was, and is, one of the most mysterious of the porn stars who emerged during the golden age of the 1970’s and early 1980’s. The reason is mainly because Constance Money’s porn career only consisted of seven films, but her name, her face and her story is still a big subject today among devoted fans of porn’s early days. She was born in 1956 and made her debut in porn in 1974 in the film “Confessions of a Teenage Peanut Butter Freak”, one of the strangest ever titles in porn. She used the name Christine Hoover in that film. She was immediately noticed for her looks, but also for her all out performance in threesome that she made a standout scene in the film.
Her really big break came in 1975 when she was featured in the now porn classic, “The Opening of Misty Beethoven” and it was in this film that the name Constance Money was born. During the filming she got into a relationship with Jamie Gillis that lasted for quite some time and was “different” to say the least. After Misty and the awards it received from the Erotic Film Festival, Constance increased her performance fee to four times what she had been making. Her next film was an excellent feature called “Mary, Mary” in 1976 and then in 1978 she starred in a thriller titled “Anna Obsessed” which many have said was one of the very best porn films of the 1970’s. It was the type of mainstream like production that you are seeing done today by many film companies. In 1977 she also starred in another porn film that has become a classic, “Barbara Broadcast” and in 1978 “Maraschino Cherry”. In addition Ms. Money’s looks and figure got her to appear in two Playboy layouts, July 1978 and May 1979.

In 1980 she decided to retire from films and go about leading a normal life. She had a relationship with John Leslie for a time, but retired from porn she decided to make a clean break and moved from California. Under her real name, Susan Jensen, she moved to Alaska opening and running a lodge that became a haven for off shore oil riggers. She kept her porn past secret and ran the business totally straight. In 1983, lured back for one more film because of the popularity of her earlier films she returned but only for a very hefty fee, and filmed “A Taste of Money” with Gillis. While it wasn’t up to the exceptional standards of her previous films, it still was an excellent feature and Constance/Susan still looked fantastic and had the same all out sexual drive.

After doing that film she retired for good, returned to Alaska and her lodge. Since that time little is known about where Constance/Susan is and what she is doing. However, even though she only did seven adult films in her short career she is a member of the AVN Hall of Fame and while she is not in the XRCO Hall of Fame as a performer, four of her films are. Her time may have been short, but the few films she did have become golden age classics.
