The life of porn star John Holmes was such an epic event that his adventures, trials and tribulations have been the inspiration for films, books and documentaries about stars in the porn industry. He was known for having the longest dick in the business at the height of his career, and more talent than most at acting in porno movies. The well hung star of smut films was born in 1944 and often went under the aliases of John C. Holmes or Johnny Wadd. He started out in the business in the late 1960s after he was spotted by a photographer taking a leak in a urinal. The sheer size of his big cock secured him work as an XXX rated magazine model instantly, and before long catapulted him into porn flicks. Life took a tragic turn however when he became hooked on cocaine. He turned to various forms of crime including fraud, prostitution and pimping to support his habit, which had already started to affect his on-screen performance. In 1971, Holmes' career began to take off with a porn series built around a private investigator named Johnny Wadd, most episodes of which were written and directed by Bob Chinn. Holmes continued to find work during his comeback, and along with many of his male contemporaries, he helped to usher in the new starlets of the decade such as Ginger Lynn, Amber Lynn, Sheri St. Claire, and Kimberly Carson as upcoming directors focused on looking for younger talent that a PornMd search will help find. His reputation took a further pummeling when he was associated with the notorious Wonderland murders. In 1986 the failing star was diagnosed with AIDS, which most believe he contracted during one of the few gay scenes he performed in, and went to Italy to film his final few porno films. Holmes was nicknamed "The Sultan of Smut", a pun on Babe Ruth's nickname, The Sultan of Swat. Sadly Johnny Wadd aka Mr. Big Dick died from AIDS-related complications on March 13th, 1988 at the age of 43. But he lives on in PornMd.com searches.
