Dark Side of Porn – Debbie Does Dallas Uncovered
Debbie Does Dallas is a 1978 pornographic film starring Bambi Woods. The plot of the film focuses on a team of cheerleaders attempting to earn enough money to send the title character to Dallas, Texas, to try out for the famous “Texas Cowgirls” cheerleading squad.
The fictional name “Texas Cowgirls” was seen as a take on the real-life Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. Woods had previously tried out for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders in real-life, but was rejected. The film was highly successful, is regarded as one of the most important releases during the so-called “Golden Age of Porn”, and remains one of the best-known pornographic films.
Contrary to the title, the film is not set in Dallas nor does the eponymous Debbie “do” anyone in or from Dallas. The movie spawned a number of sequels and spin-offs including Debbie Does New Orleans, Debbie Does Wall Street and Debbie Does Dallas Again.
