Erica Boyer dead
Erica Boyer Killed in Traffic Accident
Popular performer won awards for both gay and straight roles

PORN VALLEY-According to news reports, actress Erica Boyer was killed on New Year's Eve in a traffic accident near her home in Panama City Beach, Florida, where she had been living since her retirement from the adult industry in 1994. She was 53 years old, and is reportedly survived by one son.
The Panama City News-Herald has reported that Amanda Jensen, Boyer's real name, was traveling south on Front Beach Road (U.S. Highway 98) near Second Street, and while attempting to cross Front Beach Road was struck by a 2001 four-door Hyundai being driven by an off-duty officer in the Florida Highway Patrol, Gregory Lowe of Fort Walton Beach. She was killed instantly. The accident occurred at 8:20 p.m. on New Year's Eve, and is currently under investigation by the Highway Patrol.
According to the Internet Adult Film Database, Boyer began her XXX career in a little-seen 1974 movie, Cowgirls In Chains, but waited another five years before fully taking the plunge into adult acting. From that point, she worked regularly for another 25 years, during which period she racked up the vast majority of her 184 features. However, she did come out of retirement briefly in the early 2000s.
"The only time I ever worked with Erica was when she found out I was making a movie with Marilyn [Chambers]," recalled actress/director Veronica Hart. "She flipped; she said, 'I have to do a scene with her.' It's something she'd wanted to do all her life, and she basically came out of retirement to do a scene with Marilyn, because she just loved her so much."
The movie was Dark Chambers, the second of a trio of movies Chambers did for VCA beginning in 1999, and Boyer's final on-camera appearance.
"She was just so nice and so sweet," Hart continued. "She was living in Florida. Everybody had only the nicest things to say about her. She was just a gem to work with, and she was so thrilled to work with Marilyn, and I was so happy to be able to put them together."
Boyer was known primarily for her girl/girl scenes, and reportedly, that was her preference off-camera as well.
Asked in a 1989 interview whether there were any real lesbians in the adult industry, bisexual actress Nina Hartley replied, "There used to be two: Erica Boyer and Barbara Dare. While for many years they had lesbian relationships off camera for emotional support and identified themselves as lesbians, each recently got married to a man. Obviously, they were basically bisexual and just hadn't found the right man yet. They still enjoy sex with women very much, and there will always be that love and affection for women. But at this point in time, they have bonded with a man."

2010 is off to a pretty sad start, first hearing about Aunt Peg's (Juliet Anderson) passing, now reading about Erica Boyer.
R.I.P. to two Porn Legends.

Lowe of Fort Walton Beach, investigators wrote. Lowe and his passenger, Tiffany Lowe, 26, suffered minor injuries in the incident, officials said. Jensen was pronounced dead at the scene.
Charges in the case are pending further investigation, officials said in a news release.
