Carter Stevens is an old school performer/Director, one of the guys that this biz owes a debt of gratitude.
From his wikipedia page:
Carter Stevens (born October 17, 1944) is a former pornographic film actor, grip, gaffer and lab technician (film processing) and director. He made 8mm loops, appeared in over 50 adult films between around 1973 and 1993, and directed about 40 films between 1972 and 1996, including a series of films for the Avon Theater chain.
He fought battles with drugs, a life-threatening heart attack, and charges of obscenity before re-emerging in the 1990s and early 2000s to produce the BDSM-related S&M News, and several print publications.
He was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2009 but never received his trophy. Apparently it was either lost or never created.
I have now been notified that Theo Sapoutzis himself has decided to make that right and have a replacement trophy or a facsimile thereof created and sent to Carter Stevens. It’s good to hear that AVN is doing the right thing here.
Congrats to Carter Stevens and to Theo at AVN for making things right for this important member of the adult community.
