Dorothiea Patton hails from the state of Virginia where she is the daughter of industrious blue-collar parents and one of a multitude of relatives. As a child, “Dottie” was a rough and tumble tomboy who reveled in wide-open spaces examining bugs or pulling mischievous pranks with siblings and various cousins. A plain-looking girl in her adolescent years, by the time she was sixteen, Dottie had transformed into a beautiful young woman and won her first beauty pageant while still in high school.
Marriage at eighteen provided a means to independence and freedom, but Dottie quickly discovered she was not destined for a life of bare feet and a succession of pregnancies. After she and her first husband parted company, Dottie began dating a man who owned several adult bookstores showing eight-millimeter loops. Appalled by how unkempt some of the early female performers appeared, she decided she could present a more aesthetically appealing package for consumers and set about to prove it.
