Traci Lords Net Worth $7 Million Dollars
As a minor, she couldn’t be charged and was rather viewed as a a casualty of the business who was drugged and got to do things against her wishes. Despite the fact that she maintained she’s attempting to flee from her porn past, she kept her stage name which was so connected to her ‘dangerous’ promotion. Eventually, Lords became among a small number of porn stars to legitimately go mainstream. Lords starred in several TV series, some low budget films, including Frostbite, Blade and Princess of Mars. Not being happy to stick with big screen attributes, Lords broke off into other avenues like music, television as well as video games. All in an effort to ensure Lords’ nasty past will soon be forgotten and she’d be connected with something more decent.

She contributed vocals to the Manic Street Preachers song "Little Baby Nothing," from the Welsh group's "Generation Terrorists" album in 1992, and released as a single in November of that year. The song is about the sexual exploitation of a woman and singer/guitarist James Dean Bradfield said that "we needed somebody, a symbol, a person that could actually symbolize the lyrics and justify them to a certain degree. Traci was more than happy to do it. She saw the lyrics, and she had an immediate affinity with them. It was definitely easy to incorporate her personality into the lyrics. We just wanted a symbol for it, and I think she was a great symbol." Traci said that "I listened to the tape and really identified with the character in the song...this young girl who's been exploited and abused by men all her life."
She is easily the most successful of former porn stars to make a transition to mainstream movies.

Penthouse Pet of the Month - September 1984
Was the centerfold model for the same issue of Penthouse Magazine that "exposed" Miss America 1984, Vanessa Williams. Because she was underage, it was illegal to own or trade that issue unless the pictorial of Ms. Lords was removed.
[about her first time at an X-rated set] Yeah, it was scary. It was very scary. I was really young, and I was really inexperienced sexually.
[about what drove her to porn industry] My damage drove me into porn. I mean, I was a little girl. And I had like all of this stuff. I'd been raped. I'd been molested. I'd been abused. I was messed up. And I was angry. And the same thing that later helped me to change my life when I was 18 and out of that world that helped me to get sober and helped me to gather the courage to go and do the work I needed to do, to look at some things in my life that were so ugly.
[about porn industry] You know, I can tell you from my personal experience that I've never met a happy porn star.
I hate the phrase "former porn queen." That part of my life was a long time ago. Think of something else to call me... I'm successful in spite of my past, not because of it.
[about her porn career] I was really young, I was really stupid about some things.
[about her porn career] No one put a gun to my head and said "you have to do this."
My parents never got along. It was a very ugly scene to be a part of.
[asked about her role as Jordan Radcliffe on First Wave (1998)] I jokingly refer to it as the DKNY Militia because she always looks great. When she's battling the aliens, she's always got the best leather pants on.
