Ordeal is a 1980 autobiography by the former pornographic actress Linda Lovelace (real name Linda Boreman), star of the film Deep Throat, a seminal 1972 film at the forefront of the Golden Age of Porn. In the autobiography, Lovelace recounts that she was raped during her career in the porn industry. As such, Ordeal became influential within the feminist anti-pornography movement.
