I just learned that porn legend Amber Rayne died. Literally. I haven’t even changed rooms since I found out. I knew Amber on a personal level and we communicated…and then a few months ago she just suddenly just dropped off the face of the Earth. I knew she was rather upset because her horse had died and I thought she had fallen into depression related to that. I sent her several messages…but no reply. I just realized that I messaged her several times after she died…including the day she died.
And this morning I stumbled across an article saying that she was found dead in her home on April 2nd…4 month ago. :'( So much for going to a San Jose Sharks game with her.
I immediately googled all I could to find out what had happened. Apparently she died in her sleep as a result of a cocaine overdose. No doubt a direct result of self-medicating to deal with the death of her horse…whom she is now riding and flying with in heaven.
One thing that makes me upset about all the reports about her death was…they all mention a particular porn actor she was not fond of with respect to a sexual assault. This had absolutely no relevance to the story and was by no means a defining part of her life. She was strong and didn’t let that incident trouble her and to have it mentioned in virtually every report of her death seems just plain wrong.
It would be far more appropriate to include things like she hated smurfs.
Amber Rayne was a beautiful person, both physically and inside in the places it counts. Her given name was Meghan. She was an actress first — a traditional actress — and was an understudy in Les Meserables and tried to break into the film industry in California but only succeeded in getting a handful of jobs as a background extra.
But she found her calling in what she described as ‘the loving community’ of porn. And unlike most porn actresses who cum and go, she stayed with it into her 30s — and kept her body hot the whole time too. She starred in over 500 adult films and was nominated for over 20 adult film awards…but only won AVN’s not so coveted ‘Unsung Starlet of the Year’ Award. She deserved better and hopefully she will get more recognition for her work this year, as often it takes a person dying for them to be appreciated.
After retiring from porn, she became a horse trainer and she was making a new life around that — and she had always loved horses. In fact, her very first horse as a child was named Amber Rayne.
