Fans of this column know we love to celebrate porn star birthdays, but when it comes to skin flick anniversaries, the second week of March is a doozy. We've got four birthdays, two from absolute legends in the game, as well as the passing of one of the genre's true titans, all in This Week in Showbiz History...

<!--more-->Nina_Hartley

3/11/59: NINA HARTLEY BORN IN BERKELEY, CA
• One of the OGs in the game, we like to call Nina "Mommy" because a) she's awesome, and b) she's actually old enough to be ours. Last seen playing Hillary Rodham Clinton in Who's Nailin' Paylin?

week_jeremey

3/12/53: RON JEREMY BORN IN QUEENS, NY
• Another OG in the game (as in Original Groundhog), Ron Jeremy is...well he's fucking Ron Jeremy, that's who. And if you don't be careful, your girl might someday, too.

John_Holmes

3/13/88: JOHN HOLMES DIES IN L.A.
• Yet another OG in the porn game, Holmes was the inspiration for the Dirk Diggler character in Boogie Nights, and died a gruesome death from AIDS in '88. After his death he was cremated and had his ashes spread in the Pacific, although it would probably be more appropriate for him to be buried six feet under, considering the number of times he buried 25% of that in his career.

Eva_A
3/14/84: EVA ANGELINA BORN IN ORANGE COUNTY, CA
• Eva has terrible eyesight, and is famous for wearing glasses when she performs. Yes, it gives her a sexy librarian thing, but it's also sensible, because getting contacts out is hard enough but doubly so (so we would imagine) after a "drenching."

week_love

3/14/85: BRIANNA LOVE BORN IN FRESNO, CA
• What can we say about the lovely Ms. Love that she can't explain herself: "I like to use my brain," she said on the set of Brianna Love, Her Fine, Sexy Self. OK, so maybe Brianna's not the most self-aware person in the world (we can think of a few other "body parts" she likes to use), but maybe she hasn't seen Ass Cream Pies 11 as many times as we have.
