    Gerard Damiano, the director of legendary porn classic Deep Throat, has passed away. He was 80-years-old and died on Saturday at a hospital in Fort Myers, Florida. Damiano had suffered a stroke last month.

    He is survived by his son, Gerard Damiano Jr., as well as a daughter. Before achieving fame for the world's most notorious adult flick, Damiano worked as a hair dresser and joined the Navy. His son recalls visiting his father on film sets as a child, but being removed when the "dirty" scenes were being filmed. His son also claims that his father was never ashamed of his work.
