I had seven adult bookstores in Virginia and Maryland that I owned. In the back of the stores at that time, you had the movies and you would have to loop the movies. So I would have to fix the movies when they broke and of course, I ended up watching a lot of movies. Well, I saw these ladies doing adult films back then and felt that was a nasty representation of women. I thought to myself that I can do it and do it better than that. That is how I came into the industry.
Seka is a member of the AVN Hall of Fame, and the X-Rated Critics Organization Hall of Fame.
Aside from her marriages to Frank Patton (1972-77?), Patrick Connelly (1987) and Kenneth M. Yontz (1978-80), Seka dated Comedian Sam Kinison in the mid-'80s. She credited him for arranging an appearance with him on Saturday Night Live.
Seka's early pornographic pseudonyms included Linda Grasser. She eventually adopted the screen name Seka, after a female blackjack dealer she knew in Las Vegas. (She married actor-turned-director Kenneth M. Yontz the year after her porn debut; they divorced in 1980.) She went on to star in more than 200 adult videos with a "break" in 1982, when she stopped shooting sex movies, claiming "they wouldn't pay her what she wanted," and turned to stripping and nude modeling while also running her own fan club. Subsequently, she admitted that the HIV epidemic in the mid-1980s contributed to her decision to avoid the hardcore sex scene, saying, "That's why I don't make movies any more . . . I like to live." By the early 1990s she had returned to the porn industry to perform in a few final movies, her last being American Garter.
In 1997 she hosted a radio talk show in Chicago called Let's Talk About Sex on Saturday nights from 10:00 pm-2:00 am on 97.9FM, The Loop; she hosted it for approximately three years.
In 2005 she moved from Chicago to Kansas City, operating her fan club through her own website. In February 2007 she stated she had just shot her first hardcore scene in nearly 15 years, available as online pay-per-view.
She has appeared on various talk shows such as those hosted by Alan Thicke, Montel Williams, Oprah Winfrey, Larry King, Phil Donahue, and Morton Downey Jr., as well as an appearance on Saturday Night Live. Seka appeared in the 2012 documentary After Porn Ends, about life after being a porn actor.
In 2015 she published her autobiography, Inside Seka, whose text Kerry Zukus transcribed from her dictations. Jim Norton wrote the foreword and Bobby Slayton wrote the afterword.
