Tracey Adams (born Debra Blaisdell, June 7, 1958) is an American former pornographic film actress who has appeared in some mainstream films. She has appeared in over 300 movies during the 1980s and 90s, and is an AVN Hall of Fame founding inductee.
In addition to her adult appearances, Adams also appeared in mainstream movies such as the 1986 comedy movie Wimps (and also appeared on the movie poster), the 1987 comedy Student Affairs, the 1989 thriller Enrapture, and the 1990 movie Killer credited as Deborah Blaisdell. She also appeared in the French TV movie La femme en noir in 1988.
Adams testified in April, 1987 in San Fernando Municipal Court in a publicized case of two men charged with felony pandering in the production of sex videotape. Adams and five other performers, among them Stacey Donovan and Steve Drake, testified that they were paid to go to a Sand Canyon home in June 18, 1986 and perform sex acts before cameras. Adams said she was paid to perform, but not paid to have sex. The performers were hired by Cinderella Distributors, run by Charles Brickman and Thomas Ingalls. Adams and the other performers testified that Ingalls was the cameraman during the shooting session, and that they were paid in cash after the session. They said their daily pay ranged from $300 for Drake to $1,000 for Donovan. The felony pandering charges were later dropped against Brickman, who pleaded no contest, agreed to testify against Ingalls. He had risked facing a sentence ranging between 3-13 years in prison.
According to a 1991 article in the Los Angeles Times, "Although she is free-thinking, Adams is anything but the free-spirited sexual athlete her fans like to imagine. She worries about crime and overpopulation and drinks two vodkas medicinally each night to help her sleep. She sponsors two poverty-stricken children in foreign countries. Her rented bungalow in West Los Angeles might be the home of any anxious, PBS-watching, middle-level executive except for the catalog of her sex tapes hidden behind a wood plank on an upper shelf in a back room."
