|"Golden Goddesses" Cake at Hustler Launch|
As I've done throughout the process of developing this book, I'd like to share a glimpse of my chapter on Kitten Natividad titled Sex "Kitten" Natividad. I was thrilled to finally met Kitten for the first time last month at our book launch in Los Angeles. She's a wonderful person, full of life, and kind. I'd also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy, peaceful and safe holiday season. :)
Born in Mexico in 1948 to a teenage bride, Francesca Isabelle Natividad was three years old when her parents divorced. Before the age of ten, Francesca and her mother immigrated to El Paso, Texas where they settled in with her new stepfather. Natividad adapted easily to her congenial surroundings and dutifully assisted with her younger siblings. While engaged in secondary school studies, a relative hooked the young teenager up to keep house for actor Stella Stevens in Hollywood for summer work where Natividad flourished. After graduating from grade twelve, Francesca was hired as a key punch operator but quickly became unfulfilled by the monotony of her work. At the advice of a friend, she decided to audition as a Go-Go dancer, and ultimately became an exotic dancer, a profession she found to be gratifying and profitable. During her early years as a stripper, Natividad adopted the stage name “Kitten”. While married to her second husband, Kitten was introduced to sexploitation director, Russ Meyer. She
became a star prodigy after her provocative debut as an orator in the cult classic Up! (1976). Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixons (1977) followed as did a lengthy relationship with Meyer, and subsequently, several breast augmentation surgeries that provided Kitten with a forty-four inch chest.
