About Leslie Glass
Leslie Glass (October 4, 1963 — August 4, 2000), was an American porn star, model, and animal rights and rescue activist.
According to an obituary, she was "...best known as a Penthouse Pet of the Year Runner-Up and Penthouse International Pet of the Year, model, exotic dancer, Vivid Films adult film star, and founder of Pet-4-Pets, an animal rescue and care organization."
Glass grew up in southwest Baltimore, graduated from Mercy High School, and attended the Maryland Institute College of Art. She modeled for Merry-Go-Round stores and Pimlico Race Course, and was a champion skateboarder who taught the sport to others.
In 1982, at the age of 19, Glass began working as a bartender at Hammerjack's Concert Hall and Nightclub, a famous rock and roll-oriented nightclub in Baltimore, and one of largest and most popular indoor bar venues on the east coast (since razed). Glass would frequently dress in sexy clothes, including lingerie, and dance on the bar; she quickly became one of the most popular bartenders. Throughout the 1980s, Glass manned the most prominent bar in front of the concert stage that frequently featured acts such as Kix, Joan Jett, Ted Nugent, and Guns N' Roses. Later, she founded and managed a women's lingerie and bikini dance troupe that was a regular feature. She became a feature dancer at Memories Strip Club in Dundalk, Maryland.
From 1988 to 1992, Glass traveled to Atlantic City to be a round card girl at boxing matches and was featured in a Playboy pictorial on the job. She attracted the notice of Penthouse magazine and became "Pet of the Month" in February 1992, was in the Penthouse Pet of the Year Playoffs in 1993, and in 1994, at the age of 31, became Penthouse Pet of the Year Runner-Up. Signing with Vivid Video, Glass filmed several girl-girl porn features with Janine, beginning with Vagablonde in 1994.
Glass was first diagnosed with colon cancer in 1998. After surgery to remove part of the colon and an ovary, she was given two weeks to live. When diagnosed, Glass was already at stage 4 of her cancer, as it had already metastasized to her liver and consumed an ovary. Glass was treated at the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center.
She was the first person in the United States to receive a new experimental cocktail of chemotherapy drugs. This produced dramatic results. However, the cancer stopped responding to the drugs. Tumor ablation was used to "microwave" tumors on her liver, and she continued to try different chemotherapies throughout the two years she survived after her diagnosis. During this time she continued to work, and made appearances on television and elsewhere to discuss the disease. She fought for two years before succumbing on August 4, 2000, aged 36.

Sadly, Leslie Glass is gone. She was my pen-pal once. I'd seen her breathtaking cover photo on Penthouse and, though I didn't read it much anymore, I had to see if she was as stunning in all her photos. Not to salaciously drool over her, she was ethereal and deserved better than that. Just to know if the cover photo was an exception. It was NOT! She was a striking goddess in every photo! What's more, she'd devoted her life to rescuing sick and abandoned animals! What an EXTRAORDINARY young lady! Time passed. I heard on one of those t.v. gossip shows that she was sick. Naturally, they gave no details. With my big brother Johnny's full support (I've always been a bit of a coward) I called Penthouse Cust. Serv.The lady there was very nice and told me Leslie had liver cancer. I asked if I could write to her and the lady promised to get it to her personally. I wanted to give her some kind of gift, but could afford nothing like she deserved. So, ashamedly, I included a $25.00 K-Mart gift card. In less than two weeks, she wrote me back! She told me she loved the card and shopped at K-Mart a lot! I'll never know if she was just being kind.She also said my card had put a smile to her face. To think, even for a second, I had made her smile is a feeling I can't describe. I was preparing a much longer letter when I received a short card from her saying she'd been sick (she never mentioned her disease) and that's why she hadn't written. I hurried to rewrite my letter and, in a day or two took it to post it. On the way, I remembered that the most recent Penthouse announced that the next issue would carry a new pictorial of Leslie to let her fans know she was getting better. I raced to the news stand, but no pictorial. I pretty much knew what that meant, but I called Cust. Serv. to be sure. In tears, the fella I got said she'd moved back home and passed away. We talked for a bit about how everybody who knew her just loved her because she had such a caring heart. I toddled home. Johnny knew when I walked in what was wrong. Johnny was a powerfully built boxer and I am a little fat guy. But even in my 40s and he in his 50s, it still felt a little easier to be held by big brother while I cried. I had to do something to honor her. I just had to! Then, I remembered she'd been a ring-card girl, and Johnny had never lost a boxing match. I phoned the last club, one in Florida, she'd danced at, got a very sweet girl who missed her too, and asked if they would accept a small pair of gloves my brother had won once. She said they had a memorial to her in the office and she'd be VERY happy to make Johnny's gloves a part of it. Before she took so sick, Leslie, with the help of Penthouse, staged many charity events to raise money for one of the first cancer clinics just for dogs. It was built, but I don't know if she lived to see it. All I do know for sure is that it was an HONOR to meet her; an HONOR to know her; And an HONOR to call her my friend!
