Shannon Whirry Animal Instinct

Her movies played like rehashed old Hollywood noir films. Often, Whirry played the femme fatale, seducing weak willed, stupid men. It goes without saying the films were more than a bit sexist but there was little point being offended. These films weren’t trying to be socially redeeming.


Shannon Whirry was born November 7, 1964 in Green Lake, Wi. Whirry started in the erotic B-movie industry. Her large breasts, and willingness to put them on display help Whirry get a leg up on her competition.
