Will Ryder to Make 'Jersey Boys' His Next XXX Musical

HOLLYWOOD—Director Will Ryder, who saw major wins at this year's AVN Awards for his musicals Not The Wizard Oz XXX (X-Play/Pulse) and Grease XXX: A Parody (Adam & Eve Pictures), plans to follow them up with his own take on the stage-and-screen story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Jersey Boys XXX: The Sex Musical.

To be produced by his X-Play studio, the movie once again enlists Ryder's music studio partner Rock Hardson, with whom he has already begun recording tracks for the production. Ryder plans to release the movie in September.

"This sex movie musical is really going to appeal to couples, women and also to porn fans that love the Jersey Boys," Ryder said. "But if you don't enjoy naked girls having sex along with great music, this is not the movie for you."

Added Ryder's X-Play partner Scott David, "We're going to have gorgeous girls sexually involved with guys amidst standout musical performances."

Ryder is currently casting Jersey Boys XXX and welcomes interested actors and actresses to contact him.

Navigating Elusive Facts in a Porn-Saturated World

Navigating Elusive Facts in a Porn-Saturated World

LOS ANGELES—Today in the Women's section of HuffPo, a writing instructor at Columbia University named Sarah Thomas published a piece entitled 5 Ways to Navigate a Relationship in a Porn-Saturated World. It's a first-person rumination ripped from the pages of a relationship Thomas had with an old boyfriend who looked at porn from time to time.

ADVERTISEMENT


Trying to explain her general perspective on the subject, Thomas writes, "We have the vast capacity to both love and fear things, to be both titillated and disgusted, to be excited and threatened, angry and liberated and so forth. Human sexuality is complex. And porn is a facet of it that still incites ambiguity in me—I don't have it all figured out. So, in the spirit of exploration, I've decided to share some strategies that I learned from that relationship for how to find peace in the T&A-laden world in which we now live."

Her strategies are few in number (5) and easily encapsulated: face reality, do a self-inventory, figure out what kind of relationship you can have with porn, take action and acknowledge the fantasy.

Thomas elaborates on these in the piece, of course, though savvy individuals won't need any more than the headers to get the gist of what she wants to impart. But what is striking, and what we have seen in pieces like this before, is the unfortunate fact that the writer holds out as the foundation supporting all of the contentions made in the piece, so-called data-driven facts that have long since been exposed as made-up nonsense.

That's right, once again the dreaded Online MBA infographic has been pulled out as the source of all things porn-factual, long after—years after!—the allegations made in the infographic from hell have been thoroughly discredited as "statistics laundering" of the worst sort.  

It's kind of like that old $12 billion dollar number that stalked the land as the incontrovertible revenue data point for adult entertainment. Originating at AVN, the figure was always one that has been pulled straight from someone's anal cavity, and except for video sales figures supplied from what used to be the Video Software Dealers Association, never had the support of verifiable data to back it up, especially regarding novelty and magazine sales, not to mention strip club door fees, but that has not stopped the mainstream press from repeating it ad nauseam for years after it may have been credible, no matter how many times they were told it has become embarrassing rubbish with little relationship to reality.

People obviously need numbers, even if they are made up, but sadly, that need often extends to our own relationships, the intimate details of which we apparently also need to evaluate next to what everyone else is doing, even if it's all made up!

UK Cops Slipping Warnings Onto Copyright Infringing Sites

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

They also suggest that the IP addresses of visitors to infringing websites are also be logged for future possible use by the authorities.

UK Cops Slipping Warnings Onto Copyright Infringing Sites

CYBERSPACE—Now comes word that the Police Intellectual Property Crime Unit (PIPCU) of the London Police are surreptitiously placing warnings about copyright infringement into piracy sites as a way of letting visitors to the site know that British eyes are watching. Dubbed Operation Creative, the warnings are actually placed, or replaced, over ads "that provide access to pirated or copyright infringing material," according to TechCrunch.com.

ADVERTISEMENT


The scheme is rather complicated, and involves the participation of ad networks as well as rights-holders, the police, and even, to an extent, the offending sites, which can mitigate their behavior in order to be taken off a list compiled by PIPCU called the Infringing Websites List (IWL).

"Sites end up on the IWL after PIPCU receives a submission from rights holders that the site is infringing IP," reports TechCrunch. "It then conducts a verification process to determine whether the site should be on the list or not. It says it’s working actively with the BPI, FACT, IFPI and the Publishers’ Association to keep the IWL up-to-date."

While the project is tinged with secrecy—"The IWL has not being made public, beyond PIPCU sharing it with the digital ad sales traders and networks it’s working with on this operation, namely the IAB UKISBA and IPA."—the justification for keeping the list on the down-low, a spokesperson told TechCrunch, is "because the aim is to work with infringing websites to switch them over to a legal path—so it doesn’t want to name and shame publicly when the website in question may subsequently clean up its act."

The new scheme is cauterized as an attempt to influence problematic sites to engage with the government before it's too late. "We’re giving them enough time to legitimize themselves, correcting their behavior," said the spokesperson. "It’s kind of a new innovative policing, rather than going and arresting people; it’s a different way of dealing with this stuff."

Interestingly, the plan to replace infringing ads rather than just block them came about after a failed attempt last year that resulted in "ad space being replaced with malware."

According to TechCrunch, "The latest move seeks to avoid that consequence by not just blocking content from certain ad networks but replacing banners on sites with police warnings instead."

Detective Chief Inspector Andy Fyfe, head of PIPCU, also justified the new practice, saying in a statement, “If an advert from an established brand appears on an infringing website not only does it lend the site a look of legitimacy, but inadvertently the brand and advertiser are funding online crime. Therefore the IWL also serves as a safety tool, ensuring the reputation of advertisers and brands are not discredited through association with illegal websites.”

Responding to a query from the site, PIPCU further clarified that "the advert replacement possibly could be seen overseas, however it is more than likely to be mostly UK based.”

However, when asked if PIPCU logs the IP addresses of people visiting infringing sites, the spokesperson responded ominously, “As this is a police operation, we cannot disclose all details of the initiative however we can confirm that a number of tactical approaches are used by PIPCU as part of Operation Creative.”

CNET’s Matyszczyk Mulls Porn’s Role in Americans’ Privacy Concerns

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

CNET's Matyszczyk Mulls Porn's Role in Americans' Privacy Concerns

CYBERSPACE—Over the years, longtime CNET contributor Chris Matyszczyk has addressed just about every issue under the sun related to technology, including, inevitably, adult content and the online porn industry. It is a little odd, therefore, that he seems so perplexed by the results of a recent poll asking Americans about their worst fears about online privacy, writing that "a mere 16 percent of those surveyed said one of their biggest worries was being spied upon while watching pornography." [Italics added.]

ADVERTISEMENT


The use of the word "mere" in that context reveals how strongly Matyszczyk believes people should be concerned about porn. At one point he even asks of the 16 percent figure, "How should one react?"

He then proceeds to pose a few possible answers, including, "Should one conclude that this activity is now so normal, so regular, and such a modern substitute for actual physical intimacy that many people think it ho-hum?

"Or could it [be that] a vast swath of the population doesn't partake of such a thing or still isn't keen on admitting it, even in an anonymous survey?"

In other words, people are either fibbing about porn use, not watching much porn or using porn as a substitute for physical intimacy. He even prefers one of the options, explaining, "Let's plump for the former. This makes it easier to contrast this 16 percent with the 71 percent of Americans who say they're petrified that someone will snoop as they access their bank accounts or other financial data. (Respondents could choose more than one answer.)"

But none of this makes any sense. Who wouldn't someone be more concerned about having their bank info stolen than being caught visiting a porn site? And who exactly is monitoring all of these porn site visits, anyway? Matyszczyk does not say, but still believes that the 16 percent number should be higher, otherwise he would never have characterized the percentage as mere.

Now, if the respondents had been asked how concerned they are about catching a virus from a porn site, our guess is that the 16 percent number would rise dramatically. But that was not the subject of the survey; privacy concerns were, and in that regard it makes much more sense that people would be more concerned about their financial data than whether someone might find out they're watching porn. It also makes sense that, as Matyszczyk notes, "When it came to which platforms made respondents most insecure, social networks came out on top at 66 percent, with email second at 56 percent."

In the end, the biggest takeaway from the piece is simply that Matyszczyk sees the world through a porn glass darkly.

He may write, "I choose to conclude that money, what we buy, and how we look are all more important to Americans than whether we enjoy observing others in flagrante to ease our burden," but he betrays himself when he adds, gratuitously, "After all, money, possessions, and looks say so much about us. Watching online porn merely says we're lonely."

Really, Chris? Is that really all it says about us, or maybe, just maybe, that's what watching porn says about you, which is probably (no, definitely) more than any of us wanted to know in the first place.

TMZ: Skin Diamond Rejects Olympian Mance

Skin Diamond Rejects Olympian Mance

HOLLYWOOD—Multiple AVN Award-winner Skin Diamond has turned up as the subject of a two-part story on TMZ—which seems fixated on the fact that she appeared in Jules Jordan Video's Weapons of Ass Destruction 7—involving U.S. Olympic medalist Josh Mance's crush on her.

In the initial story, posted Monday, Mance charged TMZ with finding Diamond and telling her "it's time to come home." Explaining that he discovered her a couple months ago, Mance asserted that she's "killing the game right now," which he attributed to her persona of "innocence."

ADVERTISEMENT


"She has this innocence to her, that's what it is, even though she's a porn star," Mance pontificated. "That's the magic of Skin Diamond."

Today, the celebrity gossip outlet posted a follow-up interview with Diamond herself, who responded to Mance's behest to "come home" with the admitedly innocent retort, "Well, I don't live at his house though."

While conceding that she found Mance "cute," upon TMZ's proposition to set the two up, she laughed, "I don't know if my man would like that very much."

Asked whether she would ever give Mance a shot, she demurred, "I don't know ... he'd have to really do something wild to get my attention. That'd be really hard to do. I'm hard to please."

She then proceeded to illustrate just how hard by brushing off Mance's silver medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics. "Well that doesn't mean anything though," Diamond said. "I mean, it's a big plus, but I need a little bit more than that [making money hand sign]. Not money per se, but just a little something extra. I'd have to meet him in person, I don't know."

See TMZ's report on Mance here and follow-up with Diamond here.

MIAMI, FL—The first annual Camming Con adult webcam trade show, set to debut July 31-August 3, 2014 at the Eden Roc resort in Miami Beach, Florida, has announced its lecture and speaker schedule for the event, with eleven instructive panels and discussions that aim to inform and educate both aspiring and established professionals in the adult webcamming industry.

Industry registration will begin Thursday afternoon at 1 p.m., and Playboy TV will kick off the convention with a casting call for its reality game show Money Talks, followed by an introductory business seminar, What Are Live Cams?, before moving on to more detailed and specific trade panels throughout the following show days, such as How to Monetize Your Social Media Fans, How to Make Money with the Tubes and Best Pics = More Clicks.

Camming Con will feature over one hundred well-known names in webcamming, including Stacey Havoc, Kat Daniels, LittleRedBunny, Sabra Steele, Brittany Rose, Esmi Lee, Natalie Lust, Jes Marie, Leia Christiana, Kylie Cupcake, Cassidy Nicole,  BuniBuni, Christine Honey, Daisy Dracman, Audrlna Nerell,  Brooke Knight, Jenna Marie, Little Honey Dip, Alexa Johnson, Kirra Kiss, Dava Foxx, Jamzz, Baby, Luna Isabel, Kelley Cabbana, Sienna Hills, CJ Sparxx and many more, and adult stars Sophie Dee, Gianna Michaels, Jessica Bangkok and Reena Sky will also be on hand for B2B and fan opportunities.

Camming Con founder and show organizer Clinton Cox figures it’s about time someone started an industry-wide conference, considering how many millions of professionals it employs. “There are easily over three million models performing for over 20 million consumers worldwide, so it was time for us to come together, network, meet the fans and share ideas and business strategies under one roof, at a gorgeous beachside resort in the Miami sunshine, no less.”

While the camming industry has been relegated to small booths at porn trade shows in the past, Cox asserts that there is a real demand for a conference that celebrates the live webcam industry and expects a packed house at Camming Con. “We are creating a positive, educational conference that we hope will improve and strengthen relationships in the industry and create a more cohesive, interconnected business community as well.”

After 30+ Years, ‘Café Flesh’ Plays Again in Hollywood

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

Or ... what's Rinse Dream been doing all these years?

After 30+ Years, 'Café Flesh' Plays Again in Hollywood

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—For the first time in more than 30 years, Café Flesh, director Rinse Dream's phantasmagorical post-apocalyptic hardcore film, was again shown on Saturday night in Hollywood, thanks to the programmers of Cinefamily, which screens a variety of independent and artistic films at the Silent Movie Theater on Fairfax Avenue.

The film was shown as part of Cinefamily's "artcore" program, which also included a collection of short films shown under the label "Sexperiments," and also Dream's first hardcore effort, Nightdreams, which played on Sunday night.

ADVERTISEMENT


But what made Saturday night's program particularly interesting for adult movie fans was the appearance of Rinse Dream himself, under his real name, Stephen Sayadian. Also on the ticket was Sayadian's frequent collaborator, writer Jerry Stahl, who had co-written Café Flesh with Sayadian.

"This guy who looked exactly like Marty Allen [from the old comedy team of Allen & Rossi] said to us, 'Stephen, this man will give you $90,000; just give me a nice collage of cumshots. Take out the story; just make it beautiful. Just give me six beautiful cumshots'," Sayadian told the audience. "I said, 'So that's all you want?' He said, 'Yeah.'"

But it's not as though Sayadian was a stranger to porn. After seeking jobs at magazines like National Lampoon and the Playboy spin-off Oui, someone suggested that Sayadian try approaching the owner of a "strange little porn magazine" named Hustler, which was then based in Ohio—and the rest is history.

Since Sayadian was primarily a visual artist, Hustler owner Larry Flynt put him to work creating, with writer Jerry Stahl, ads parodying familiar products, several of which were displayed on the theater's screen. For example, Sayadian made a huge mock-up of a box of Cream of Wheat, with a live black man's head appearing in the center of the logo, and a young woman kneeling down in front of the box, with her mouth at about the level where the man's penis would be. Similar types of ads were created for Liquid Paper, Alka-Seltzer, Texaco (showing four guys in spotless white uniforms), Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix ... and Marlboro cigarettes.

"We used to have Marlboro as a client at Hustler," Sayadian recalled. "This was in the early days, like in ’75. Then when the magazine started doing all the outrageous stuff that Larry and I and other people started creating, they pulled out, and Larry, being the trailblazer that he is, said, 'Fuck you; I'm gonna do my own ads.'"

That Marlboro ad was a perfect example. The setting is a hospital cancer ward, with several beds occupied by obvious cancer sufferers—and a life-size camel, perhaps a nod to Marlboro's competitor, Camel cigarettes.

Hustler was also one of the first adult magazines to sell sex toys, and Sayadian created a series of often-humorous ads to sell the products.

"I had to come up with ideas for these new products, like a dildo in a vibrating doll, and we had a whole veggie department, so I said, 'Why don't we make a vibrating pear?'" he explained. "And I remember, it came in three types you could order: Anjou, Bartlett and Bosc. I just think it's great because Bosc was just outselling everything two-to-one. It was our biggest selling item, was the vibrating pear. I actually got a bonus for that."

However, Sayadian refused to say what part, if any, he had had in creating the Jerry Falwell Campari liquor ad, which became the basis for Falwell's suit against Hustler and Flynt, which case was eventually decided in Flynt's favor by the United States Supreme Court, enshrining a nearly bulletproof defense for ads and other writings parodying the rich and famous.

It was Sayadian who got Stahl, his friend since 1967, his job at Hustler.

"We hired Jerry because he was winning prestigious writing awards," Sayadian recalled. "He won a Pushcart Prize, which is really a very prestigious award, but we hired him and brought him in. He would come in on  Monday about 10:30 from New York, stay till about Thursday night, and by Friday, he was back on a plane to New York. But the best story is, about a year ago, I was with Larry Flynt, and he said to me, 'Stephen, I see Jerry Stahl's novels and all these great TV credits he has; did he used to work for me?' I said, 'Yes, he was the best writer you ever had in 40 years of putting out your magazine.' So he goes, 'Why didn't we use him more?' So I said, 'You're asking me that now? I was screaming about it then!'"

Regarding Café Flesh, Sayadian explained that it had been shot in a 2,500-square-foot loft on Hollywood Boulevard, right across the street from the famous Musso & Frank's restaurant, and just down the block from a Pussycat Theater.

"It was an exciting place to make a film; a lot of creativity," Sayadian said. "We were just around the corner from one of L.A.'s first punk clubs. ... That's how I met Wall of Voodoo. I thought they were the greatest sound, and I just said, 'I'm going to steal some of this.'"

In fact, Sayadian hired Wall of Voodoo to perform the soundtrack for Nightdreams, and it was Sayadian who created the beautiful desert motifs for Wall of Voodoo's first hit music video, "Mexican Radio."

"We shot everything in what was called tungsten light," he explained. "Most still photographers use a strobe; we used tungsten all through this stuff ... so we had a lot of experience with composition because of the photo shoots, so in a way, it was bringing these fixed-composition photo shoots to life."

Indeed; Café Flesh as a "look" unlike any other adult movie of its time ... or any time. In its review of the film, AVN reviewer I.L. Slifkin called it "a brave, creative step in adult filmmaking. Indeed, it is as strange a film as you’ll ever see, adult or not, and its makers, director Creme Rinse and writer F.X. Pope [Frank Delia] are to be applauded for continuously keeping the film interesting, both visually and sexually."

However, even Sayadian admitted that it would be hard to jack off to the movie. Virtually every scenario is beautifully designed and eye-catching—but the hardcore sex is barely shown, and those who perform it are dressed in unusual (to say the least) costumes: A man wearing a mouse head mask licks one gal's pussy and eventually fucks her, while another wearing a striped suit and a giant yellow pencil tip for a head is blown by a secretary and fucks her missionarily. Nearby, another nude secretary taps aimlessly on an old typewriter, asking, “Do you want me to type a message?”

What's more memorable, though, are the characters that populate Café Flesh, starting with the club's Master of Ceremonies, Max Mellow-Drama (Andrew Nichols), who early on informs the audience (many of whom were hirees poached from a local blood bank when Sayadian realized he needed more audience shots to complete the film) that since the nuclear war left 99 percent of the population "sex negative"—that is, unable to engage in any sexual activity without becoming nauseous—the only place to see actual sex being performed by the 1 percent who remain "sex positive" is at Café Flesh.

Two frequent visitors to the club are Nick (Paul McGibboney) and his girlfriend Lana (Pia Snow aka Michelle Bauer, in one of her few hardcore appearances). Nick and Lana are introduced to Angel (Marie Sharp), a girl "just in from Wisconsin," whom government inspectors discover is a "sex positive," so she's immediately recruited to take part in Café Flesh's hardcore sex shows, one of which has her fucking two guys (including Ken Starbuck) while an animation of oil wells pumps away in the background.

The finale has Lana abandoning Nick to fuck the club's newest arrival, Johnny Rico (Kevin James), and the film ends just after the cumshot.

"I remember everybody said, 'The ending looks like it's been cut off so quick. What happened?'" Sayadian related. "What they don't know is, in the original film, he [Nick] hung himself off the stage, and he would swing in front of these people having sex, and it was a beautiful ending, but the guys who were funding it, they saw what we were doing and they said, 'No, you can't.' ... And Jerry had an idea for a better one, which was having the hero cut of his penis and hand it to her. I thought that was brilliant, and I really wanted to do that."

Even the filming of Café Flesh had its humorous moments.

"We had to hide the fact that we were shooting a hard, hard XXX film upstairs, and the landlord noticed all this constant activity, so he said, 'Stephen, what the heck's going on up there?' And I said, 'Sy, I got a deal with the Ice Capades.' I said, 'We're in rehearsal; that's why you see all these pretty girls.' And he said, 'What do you mean Ice Capades?' I said, 'You know; we're doing the choreography.' He said, 'But there's no ice up there.' I said, 'Well, you know, it starts with the lighting.' And on top of that, we needed 220 [amp] electricity to do the lighting, and we didn't have it, so we had to patch in the 220, and then my prop maker, he rebuilt the wall so that we had this wall covering the electricity."

But even in this more liberal time period, Sayadian had trouble selling his adult films to theatrical venues.

"There was a time where it was sort of post-Eraserhead, post-New Wave ... and we were so misguided, we would screen it all over town for all the wrong people. I would send stills to a bunch of low-budget companies, and they would see the stills and they would flip: 'This is great!' We didn't tell them that it was pornographic ... Jerry said that in the [screening] rooms, it was so quiet, you could hear a career drop."

So Sayadian gave up adult filmmaking, though he continued to work for Hustler for several years, and eventually drifted into mainstream, becoming the production designer for the first season of the detective series Silk Stalkings.

Also shown on Saturday evening was a six-minute excerpt from a Minneapolis news magazine program on local Channel 5, which had sent a reporter and camera crew to the Café Flesh set for a report on the rising interest in adult movies on videocassette. Of particular interest today is the fact that their report included, besides a few moments with two members of Morality in Media, a mini-interview with the late sexploitation (and occasionally hardcore) director David Friedman:

"Dave Friedman, a past president of the American Adult Film Association, believes that within the next few years, X-rated moviemakers will find it economically feasible to 'forgo the theatrical market, forgo the foreign theatrical market and strictly go for cassette and for cable ... I wouldn't be surprised if there's an X-rated satellite in the next three to five years that strictly handles X-rated material.'"

"They [news crew] were on the set more than I was," Sayadian said after the clip had been played. "And by the way, the woman, Mrs. Reid, the anti-pornographer, six months after that was filmed, she was busted for running a dominatrix business. She was known for giving the best spanking in Minneapolis," he claimed.

Sayadian also intimated that he's currently working on another hardcore movie, but gave no details.

Woman Has Sex Toy Removed After It Spent 10 Years In Her Vagina

Woman Has Sex Toy Removed After It Spent 10 Years In Her Vagina

ABERDEEN, Scotland—Forgetting where you put your keys is one thing. Forgetting that you put your sex toy in your vagina and didn’t retrieve it can be life threatening.

Such was the case with a 38-year-old Scottish woman, who went to see doctors because she was concerned she was losing weight and discovered that a sex toy she had inserted 10 years ago was still there.

The woman, whom doctors described as having “normal intelligence” in their article published in the June edition of the Journal of Sexual Medicine, reported that she remembered using the item, but not pulling it out.

ADVERTISEMENT


The woman also complained of having trouble urinating and sepsis-like symptoms, the case study said. Surgeons at the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary in Aberdeen, Scotland, removed an 11 cm-long sex toy from the woman. The toy had caused a bladder blockage that was forcing urine to back up into her kidneys, and had also created a vesicovaginal fistula, which is a tract that causes urine to flow into the vagina.

Doctors have reportedly been able to repair the damage.

The product is manufactured in the UK and features a cast aluminium head covered in a non-porous, body safe PVC providing comfortable, deep vibrations ranging from approximately 3,000 to 9,000 RPM. An escalating speed setting also sets it apart from other wands currently on the market.

CMG Leisure Limited Director William Garland said, "Now that we have been selling the Doxy Massager in Europe successfully for over a year, we feel the time is right to start looking towards America. We tested the market with an ad for Doxy on the Fetlife website and it became clear there is demand from US-based customers. Also, we will be launching a second product later this year and want to be in a position to bring the Doxy brand to a truly international market."

Doxy Massager has teamed up with Ruby Goodnight as their North American marketing and distributions director to bring this award winning wand Stateside.

‘Manson Family XXX’ Wraps Production as NBC Announces Series

'Manson Family XXX' Wraps Production as NBC Announces Series

Posted Jul 28th, 2014 10:20 AM

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—Principal production has been completed on Manson Family XXX by director Will Ryder with the controversial movie entering the editing process and slated for a September release. Ironically, NBC has just announced a new TV series about the Manson Family called Manson Aquarius, which will star David Duchovny.

There apparently is no shortage of interest in the bizarre life of Charles Manson and his young family of followers which led to horrific crimes that still rock the public conscience.

"I am in no way glorifying murder and neither is NBC Television," stated Ryder who is best known for his award-winning adult movie parodies of the Brady Bunch, Cosby Show, Grease and The Wizard of Oz.

"I'm telling parts of the Manson Family story just like the writers and producers of over eighty books, movies and television documentaries have told over the years," Ryder said. "Just because we are in the porn business shouldn't restrict us from telling stories or showcasing a viewpoint, however controversial."

There was some criticism of the movie prior to production, but Ryder remains steadfast in his belief that porn is an art form and should not be automatically censored even if some don't agree with the vision.

In fact, there may be another mainstream Manson series in the works coming from Hollywood writer/director Bret Easton Ellis and Rob Zombie for Fox television, so interest in the hippie cult seems once again high.

 “Some people take great offense at the very thought of this movie,” Ryder said.

The cast will be announced when the first movie trailer is revealed later in August.  

For wholesale DVD orders of Not the Wizard of Oz XXX, Not South Park XXX, Not the Three Stooges XXX and Not the Bradys XXX Marcia goes to College, email Robert Plarski, Executive VP of Sales Pulse Distribution, or call 818-435-1605818-435-1605.

For wholesale Adam & Eve DVD sales of Grease XXX and Love Boat XXX, email Ryan Thomas or call 888-416-6130888-416-6130

For worldwide broadcast licensing for all these movies, email Peter Reynolds at Plaid Bag Media or call 818-332-2275818-332-2275 ext. 701.

Note: None of the TV or movie parodies named above have anything to do with, nor are they endorsed by anyone connected with, the mainstream movies/TV shows of similar name.

Canadian Porn Poll Reveals Huge Reluctance to Admit Porn Use

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

Canadian Porn Poll Reveals Huge Reluctance to Admit Porn Use

TORONTO, Canada—When even the firm conducting the phone survey of Canadian citizens feels compelled to repeatedly make the point that the poll results reveal an obvious refusal on the part of a majority of the respondents to answer honestly, you know you’ve hit a sweet spot in the nervous system of the populace.

What’s more, Canada.com, in its coverage yesterday of the results of the Forum Research survey of 1,624 Canadians about their use of and attitude toward pornography, was so struck by the obvious mendacity that it headlined the piece, “Only 1 in 8 Canadians admit to viewing porn in last year,” and opted for the clarifying sub-head, “As many as 7 in 8 Canadians are liars.”

ADVERTISEMENT


Lauren Strapagie opened the article with a slightly more generous take, writing, “One in eight Canadians admitted to Forum Research that they’ve viewed or purchased pornography in the past year, but a more realistic analysis may be that we don’t like sharing our naughty habits with an automated phone call.”

And Forum Research, unable to ignore the apparent, noted in its announcement of the results released in Toronto yesterday, “In a random sampling of public opinion taken by the Forum Poll among 1624 Canadians 18 years of age and older, one eighth admit to having purchased or viewed pornography in the past year (16%), while a further one quarter preferred not to answer (26%), which may stand as a proxy for admission of use. “

Even the founder and president of the Forum Research, Lorne Bozinoff, Ph.D, was compelled to observe at the top of his personal statement on the survey’s results, "We pride ourselves as Canadians on our open-mindedness, but even with the anonymity guaranteed by the IVR survey method, it would appear there is substantial under-reporting of pornography use. While uncommon among females, certainly, it must be assumed that more than one quarter of Canadian males have encountered pornography in the past year.”

Unfortunately, this emphasis on the refusal of the respondents to answer honestly only worked to obscure the survey's results, which, as Canada.com notes, “Should probably be taken with a grain of salt since they only represent 169 (don’t giggle) people — 140 men and 29 women.”

But what does emerge is a patchwork of attitudes that reflect a diverse and politicized society. For instance, as Canada.com reports, “Of all those surveyed, including those who said they don’t watch porn, 52 per cent were in favor of laws requiring internet providers to block pornography or require an opt-in requirement. Again, Christian Conservatives were the mostly likely to favor these laws, as were women.” In other words, most of the same people who said they did not watch the stuff.”

To be expected, generational differences were also a factor in how people answered. “A full half of respondents agreed that pornography is harmful to society, ranging from just 39 per cent for those age 18 to 34 all the way to 70 per cent among those age 65 or older,” wrote Strapagiel.

In the end, for Forum Research president Bozinoff, those results appear to pale beside the answers given by the porn-watchers who admitted they watched porn.

“What is interesting though,” he says, “is what those who claim to use pornography tell us about how they use it. Relatively frequently, so not a novelty item. Mostly alone, so probably not a sex aid, and always (or almost always) the same kind, so not a smorgasbord. Moreover, those who claim to use pornography resent any attempt by the state to interfere with their access. To users, this is an area where personal liberty trumps the concerns of the state.”

Braun Begins Pre-Production on ‘Empire Strikes Back XXX’

Braun Begins Pre-Production on 'Empire Strikes Back XXX'

LOS ANGELES—The first phase of production has gotten underway on the long-awaited second entry in director Axel Braun's triple-X send-up of the revered original Star Wars trilogy.

Braun's Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody, released in 2012, racked up eight AVN Awards and became one of the highest-selling adult DVDs in history. The Empire Strikes Back XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, being produced by Braun's current home studio Wicked Pictures, will reunite the cast of its predecessor—including Chi Chi LaRue as the voice of C3PO—and stands to be even more ravenously received, what with the widely held regard for Empire as the best of all the Star Wars films.

ADVERTISEMENT


"This is super exciting, and a little overwhelming," Braun said. "We just started commissioning all the costumes and props, and our VFX guys are building the models. It's gonna be a long shoot, and there's a lot of preparation that needs to happen before the cameras start rolling. The goal is obviously to top the first movie while doing justice to the source material, so we definitely have our work cut out for us."

Commented Allie Haze, who will reprise her role as Princess Leia, "I've been waiting for this a long time. Hopefully it won't take this long to get to Return of the Jedi ... I wanna wear that gold bikini!"

Also returning will be Seth Gamble as Luke Skywalker and Lexington Steele as Darth Varder, whom Braun promises will be seeing a lot more action this time around. In addition, Axel Braun Productions contract girl Riley Steele will appear in an as-yet-undisclosed role.

"I can't wait!" exclaimed Steele, who was just nominated for several NightMoves Awards including Best Female Performer and Best Body. "Being a part of this project is just so galvanizing, and I'm sure my fans are gonna love it!"

The Empire Strikes Back XXX: An Axel Braun Parody is slated for release in September 2015.

Aussie Postals Fired for Emailing Porn at Work Get Jobs Back

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

Aussie Postals Fired for Emailing Porn at Work Get Jobs Back

AUSTRALIA—Two Australian postal workers who had been fired for emailing porn at work have gotten their jobs back after a high court ruled in their favor. Following an appeal by the Australia Post seeking to keep from hiring the men back, the Federal Court ruled in support of Australia's workplace tribunal, the Fair Work Commission, which last year "rejected Australia Post's 'zero tolerance' approach to sending sexually explicit material at work and found that the workers had been unfairly dismissed," according to The Age.

ADVERTISEMENT


"The men, who worked at Australia Post's Dandenong Letter Centre in Melbourne's south-east, were among 40 workers disciplined by the postal authority over online activities in 2010," the paper added. "The activity came to light after Australia Post installed a new software filter on its email system that unearthed widespread distribution of softcore and hardcore pornographic material."

The two workers were fired despite having worked for at least a decade for the postal service, with one of the man having 17 years under his belt. In response, they appealed to the tribunal, which found in their favor, and arguing that other considerations, such as the length of their employment, should have been taken into account.

That finding was crucial in light of an "emerging trend" by employers to automatically fire anyone accused of sharing porn at the workplace that the tribunal commissioners said was "inconsistent" with fair employment practices, adding significantly, "Accessing, sending or receiving and storing pornography is not a separate species of misconduct to which special rules apply."  

In other words, while neither the tribunal nor the Federal Court were advocating for the sharing of porn at work, what they were determined to maintain was a workplace culture in which "the same general principles apply, as apply in all unfair dismissal matters involving reliance on misconduct.''

Porn abuse at work, they said, is but one form of misconduct that must be assessed similarly to other forms of misconduct, and not as a special category of misconduct the punishment for which is automatic, terminal and unappealable.

Chanel Preston Reviews ‘50 Shades’ Trailer for FilmSchoolRejects

Chanel Preston Reviews '50 Shades' Trailer for FilmSchoolRejects

LOS ANGELES—In an interview with Film School Rejects posted today, adult star Chanel Preston weighed in on her impression of the just-released trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey, the best-selling series of so-called "mommy porn" novels that will soon be enjoyed as a major motion picture by untold numbers of pornified mommies. Chanel, who's earned her fetish stripes mostly in scenes for Kink.com, answered questions about the trailer, which has already become the most active film on social media for the year, and her expectations for the movie, which is slated for release on Valentine's Day 2015.

ADVERTISEMENT


Chanel admitted up front that she "actually read the book a little before it became whatever it became," and that she "tried to read on to the second and third book, but I lost interest after the first chapter." It's perhaps no surprise, then, that when asked if she is looking forward to the movie, she replied, candidly, "I can’t say I have been really looking forward to the movie, but I am a little curious about it."

Of the casting of Dakota Johnson as Anastasia, she opined, "I’m reading that people don’t feel [Johnson] is as beautiful as Anastasia was portrayed in the book, but I think she is very beautiful. She definitely does not depict the sensationalized, Hollywood notion of beauty, but that’s what makes her relatable. I think the movie would have been horrible had they cast anyone of this type. Once people see the movie, I think people will feel differently about her. I will say that at the point where she says, 'Then enlighten me' I wanted to suck on her lips, so she clearly did it for me."

On the casting of Jamie Dornan as Christian, she said, "I’m still waiting to get a feel for [him] … so far I like him. He has a bit more of a baby face than I imagined, but I do think he will do well. However, that could be because I’m not as passionate about seeing the perfect Christian Grey as many people seem to be. I just hope he spanks Ana hard enough! ;)"

About the trailer itself, she said she would have liked to see a bit more fetish action in it, but added, "That’s coming from someone who rips clothespins off men’s nuts for a living." Ouch.

She also admitted that many in the fetish community may be disappointed in the authenticity of the fetish activity depicted in the trailer (and the film), because "it doesn’t accurately portray their own relationship with BDSM, and they are very protective over their community and lifestyle.

"However," she added, "people participate in this lifestyle for MANY reasons, and to varying degrees. Therefore, it’s not far from the truth for many people’s situations when you see Ana’s curiosity piqued because someone she is in a relationship with is interested in it."

She also said that "it wouldn’t have been beneficial for the book or movie to have gone beyond its rudimentary portrayal of BDSM. An audience may want to feel challenged, but not beyond their comprehension."

Along the same lines, she said she wished the trailer had had "one 'shocker' moment, whether through a strange implement used, or a quick, extremely sexual moment where the audience may have gone, 'What the hell was that?'"

But whatever qualms she might have about the film's BDSM chops or the fact that the trailer makers were trying a little too hard "to be tasteful," or her suspicion that the movie will be "a little cheesy," she expressed enthusiasm about the fact that the movie "will introduce people to new ideas when it comes to sex. I’m sure it wasn’t the intention of the author, but the hype about the book and movie already has ignited an interest beyond the traditional views of sexuality. Whether the hype moves someone to explore light spankings on the butt or a full lashing with a single-tail whip, I think it’s important people feel comfortable exploring their sexuality."

Volunteers Needed To Prep Shannon Collins Memorial Garden For Fall

Volunteers Needed To Prep Shannon Collins Memorial Garden For Fall

Posted Jul 25th, 2014 09:00 AM

SANTA CRUZ, Calif.—Volunteers are needed on Saturday, Aug. 2, to prep the Shannon Collins Memorial Garden for the fall season.

Crews will clean up, weed, and water the garden, plant additonal succulents, and prepare the garden for the fall season.

The ongoing California drought continues to make garden watering difficult through these warm weeks, so volunteers are asked to bring water with them to use in the garden.

Volunteers will also plant additional succulents to brighten up Shannon's Garden as the weather gradually begins to cool into late summer. Items needed include succulents, bags of soil and small gardening tools.

ADVERTISEMENT


Volunteers of all ages are needed.

The garden was created last year by LELO officials in remembrance of Shannon Collins. Collins, who co-owned the adult boutique Camouflage in Santa Cruz with her husband Ken Vinson, was murdered in May 2013.

“She was one of the first retailers to carry LELO products,” explained Patty Callahan, communications and marketing manager. “She loved the products, and we loved her. We knew we had to do something to honor her memory.”

The planting and care takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 2, at the Walnut Avenue Women’s Center, located at 303 Walnut Avenue in Santa Cruz, CA.

Morality in Media Warns Against Watching ‘50 Shades’ Trailer

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)

But will Christian kinksters listen?

Morality in Media Warns Against Watching '50 Shades' Trailer

LOS ANGELESSocial conservatives often complain about American culture, especially when it comes to television shows and Hollywood movies, and Lord knows they never miss an opportunity to issue a public statement warning that some show, website or music video promotes Satan, or whomever. But it's kind of rare for a mere trailer to spark such a public warning, which is what happened today with the release of the trailer for the movie of 50 Shades of Grey, which is surely the work of a pagan mindset, right?

ADVERTISEMENT


Morality in Media thinks so. USA Today reports that its executive director, the flying phobic Dawn Hawkins, condemned "the newly released trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey. The trailer, she says, 'deceives the public with a visually appealing melodramatic love story that romanticizes and normalizes sexual violence.'" Oh, those sneaky devils!

USA Today, however, actually gives a modicum of credence to their nonsense, with Ann Oldenburg writing for the site, "This argument came up when the first of the hot trilogy of 'mommy porn' books was published  in 2011, as the story centers around sexy millionaire Christian Grey, who is into dominant bondage sex with submissive, innocent, college grad Anatasia Steele.

"The controversy," she adds, "has been a constant topic for discussion and debate. In August 2013, a study published in the Journal of Women’s Health found that Fifty Shades perpetuates 'dangerous abuse patterns,' such as stalking, intimidation, humiliation and isolation."

One would be hard-pressed to find anything of the sort in the trailer, however, which seems to go out of its way to avoid any reference to bondage activity other than a brief glimpse of what looks to be a leather corset of some type. But it and the movie could be rendered as a PG version of the book and MiM, along with the Parent's Television Council—which also railed today about the trailer being shown on NBC this morning—would still deliver dire words of caution about seeing it.

As Dawn Hawkins wrote today, "A warning to the women lining up to see this film: There is nothing empowering about whips and chains or humiliation and torture. Women as a group will not gain power by collaborating with violent men. Women would be serving only as an agent to further their own sexual degradation, handing themselves on a silver platter to exactly the sort of men who want to use and abuse them, and take away their power."

Forgetting for a moment the blatant paternalism in a "warning" directed only at women, perhaps MiM, PTC and all of the other religion-based socially conservative groups up in arms about sex in media have reason to be concerned. If anyone has a grasp on the weakness of the flesh, they should. Indeed, as AVN reported earlier this year, results from a study out of Case Western Reserve University indicated "a powerful predilection in religious people—okay, Christians—to believe they are addicted to porn no matter how much porn they watch or whether it negatively impacts their lives."

It also should come as no surprise, even to MiM, that there exist Christians who actively engage a BDSM lifestyle without any sense of contradiction of their faith, and even go so far as to help others understand how "two Christian spouses can incorporate many elements of BDSM into their lives and still stay within Biblical guidelines for their marriage and sexuality." And of course, there are also Christian swingers who still refer to themselves as "faithful couples." Get it?

An irony here is that the source for all of this, the novel 50 Shades of Grey, was pretty much roundly panned by the authentic BDSM community for being too vanilla, which is one reason the book earned the moniker "mommy porn." That isn't exactly a compliment.

But that is the point: a tame, TV-friendly trailer for "mommy porn" is precisely more of threat to the MiMs and PTCs of the world than even the edgiest hardcore BDSM porn, which can get pretty damn edgy. They see it as teasing fetish, the soft overture to a far rougher performance, a gateway drug leading to cocktail of porn addiction, which is why they jumped all over the tame trailer.

Too late, though. If NBC likes it in the morning, look for Jimmy Fallon to slow jam it sometime soon at night.

Trailer for Ryder’s ‘American Hustle XXX’ Due Aug. 7

Trailer for Ryder's 'American Hustle XXX' Due Aug. 7

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Director Will Ryder's triple-X parody for Smash Pictures of last year's Oscar darling American Hustle sees its official trailer released to the public August 7, with an expected street date to follow in September.

"This was an unbelievable project to shoot, fascinatingly sexy and completely different from anything we've tackled before," Ryder said.

Added his production partner Scott David, "The cast delivered picture-perfect performances and actually became the vibrant characters before shedding their clothes for the best sex I've seen all year."

ADVERTISEMENT


The movie stars Aaliyah Love and Penny Pax in the respective female leads played in the big-screen original by Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams, with Tommy Gunn and Ryan McLane in the Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper roles. Comprising the supporting cast are Carter Cruise, Luna Star, Mia Austin, Rio Lee, Tommy Pistol, Van Wylde, Kurt Lockwood, Eric John, Frank Bukkwyd, James Bartholet, Jack Vegas and Ryder himself in a cameo as a desperate mark looking for a load.

"This one is going to be huge, because it has everything you want in a feature adult movie," Ryder promised. "The women on set seemed starved for sex, so they really let go and went wild, delivering some spectacular performances on top of their uncanny acting performances."

He concluded, "I love this cast and the work they put into this picture to make it as good as it is. This is no cheap movie, and it might be the best movie I've ever worked on. Thank you Smash Pictures for hiring us."

Religious Conservatives Protest Jesus—’Black Jesus,’ That Is

Religious Conservatives Protest Jesus—'Black Jesus,' That Is

JESUSLAND—Leaving aside the question of whether a person named "Jesus Christ" ever actually existed, if there's one thing that should be clear from the Bible and just about every other Christ story ever told, it's that Jesus was probably black, or at least dark-skinned. After all, he allegedly was born in the Middle East, where darker skin mostly is (and most certainly was) a way of life.

So the question now is, what motivated the ultra-religious American Family Association (AFA) and its bastard stepchild One Million Moms (1MM) to send out emails warning parents that Cartoon Network was about to begin airing a new live-action show during its late-night "Adult Swim" segment titled Black Jesus?

ADVERTISEMENT


At least part of their problem stems from their claim that Jesus, besides being black, will be portrayed as "a profane, pot-smoking, alcohol-drinking character in the impoverished urban Compton Gardens," not the clean, tidy, aloof and white Jesus that populates all modern Bible stories. (Also, isn't Compton Gardens in Isadore Hall's district? What do you suppose Black Jesus thinks about condoms?)

In any case, if Jesus was a real, living individual who grew up in poverty and consorted with the region's riff-raff—after all, he allegedly threw the money-lenders out of the temple, right? And said it was easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for the rich to get into heaven?—is it really likely that he never said the ancient equivalent of "shit" or "fuck" at any time in his life? There is a good chance he didn't smoke weed, since it really doesn't grow nearly as widely in that region as it did in the '20s and '30s on the sides of American roads, for example—but is it likely that he never took a sip or two of sacramental wine—you know, the stuff that they offer sips of to people taking communion? If anything, Black Jesus depicts a more realistic Jesus than anything one can find in today's mainstream churches.

But no; the AFA is stuck in the cleaned-up, modern-day version of their savior, decrying, "The foul language used in the trailer, including repeated uses of the Lord's name in vain, the f-word and the s-word is disgusting. In addition, there is violence, gunfire, drugs and other inappropriate gestures which completely misrepresent Jesus."

Not only that, but as far as AFA and 1MM is concerned, Black Jesus is just another example of their latest meme, the "war on Christians": "Adult Swim is not ridiculing any other religion and wouldn't dream of mocking Mohammed or Muslims, but has no problem denigrating Christians."

Guess what, geniuses: Jesus is the iconic figure for most Americans, and it's just that sort of "iconicity" that makes him a perfect subject for satire, which Black Jesus probably is. (We admit we've only seen the trailer, so we don't know for sure.)

So of course, they're calling for Cartoon Network to pull it from the schedule before it debuts on August 7.

"The garbage that passes for entertainment continues to disturb us," said AFA president Tim Wildmon. "Even the three-minute trailer was too vile to watch, with multiple uses of the f-word by the actor portraying 'Black Jesus.' Christians and anyone who believes in respecting faith must come together to make sure this program never airs."

We can't help but think that maybe part of what's worrying the AFA and 1MM is a study recently published in the journal Cognitive Science (subscription required) which found that young children who grow up in religious households and either go to church regularly and/or attend parochial school are much less able to distinguish fact from fantasy.

Anyway, the trailer for Black Jesus can be found here. Check your local listings from broadcast times and channels.

Coolio Not So Cool With TMZ’s Pornhub Claim

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off

But Pornhub says it's all cool, and suggests Coolio is just the beginning...

Coolio Not So Cool With TMZ's Pornhub Claim

LOS ANGELES—From the beginning, the interesting thing about the arrangement between Pornhub and rapper Coolio—whatever its parameters were—was less the fact that Coolio decided to record a music video, Play with the Pussy, for release on the mega-popular porn tube site than that it was the site itself that was the active suitor in the budding relationship. The immediate implication was that Pornhub was actively interested in diversifying its repertoire of content beyond the sexually explicit.

ADVERTISEMENT


According to Coolio's interview with Rolling Stone, posted today, the rapper said the song came about by a chance encounter. "I met some executive from Pornhub while he was out [in Las Vegas] for the AVNs," he told Jason Newman. "We hung out; he was cool. He asked me to do a song for Pornhub and that was it."

Responding to the TMZ claim that he had actually signed with Pornhub to make a complete album, which Pornhub would then distribute through the porn site, Coolio said, "I'm never doing a new album. I'll probably do nothing but singles. I'm as good as anybody out there lyrically and conceptually and can go toe to toe with the best of them throughout history. But I don't know how much longer I'll be doing it. It's not really fun anymore."

But he also said, in response to a question about recording new tracks for Pornhub, "I don't know where that came from. If they pay me enough money, fuck yeah, I'll do an album exclusively for Pornhub. At this point in my career, bro, I don't have nothing to prove to nobody."

Which sounds very much to us as if the rapper is open for anything—if the money is there. "I just have to prove some shit to my banker," he told Newman. "I have to prove to that motherfucker I can put more zeroes in my account."

Pornhub's latest assessment of the situation seems to comport with Coolio's. This afternoon, spokesperson Matt Blake told Billboard, "The way TMZ spun it, they made it seem like we have the exclusive forever [on his music], which isn't true—him and I have spoken about this, at the end of the day it's all about money. It would depend how much exposure it generates. If it works, we'll go forward. We love Coolio, he was a great sport. If he wants to do again, we'll be more than happy to set it up."

About the music video, which was reportedly shot in Sherman Oaks, California earlier this year, Blake told Billboard that the production value was top-notch. "TMZ made us look really low budget," he said, "but wait 'till you see it. The crew was all mainstream Hollywood people. We put together a crazy crew, and the video come out amazing."

The commitment to value is, as Billboard noted, "part of a broader strategy for PornHub, which is looking to branch out from its smut-based roots in the hopes of penetrating mainstream culture."

Blake all but confirmed those ambitions by adding, "We're changing the way that people see PornHub, that we're more than just porn. Obviously, we do porn... but combining music with sexy naked ladies can't be a bad thing!"

Music and porn have a long and close history, of course. More than a few bands have hired adult performers to appear in videos, just as more than a few mainstream movies and television shows hire people from the industry. But Pornhub appears to want to turn that trope on its head by becoming the producer of a multiplicity of content, just as Netflix decided that it, too, wanted to become more than just a distributor of other people's content, and started producing its own.

Netflix is not porn, of course, and Pornhub most decidedly is, but what they do share is the ability to attract millions of eyeballs on a daily basis, something that these days seems to inevitably inspire visions of producer fame and riches no matter from which side of the tracks one originated.

As Billboard observed, "To the outside observer, PornHub may not be the most natural selection for an artist to distribute their work. But consider that PornHub draws 40 million visitors a day and is ranked the 47th most-visited site in the U.S. according to Alexa, and to an artist it starts to look pretty enticing."

San Diego Strippers Sue Photo-Happy Cops

San Diego Strippers Sue Photo-Happy Cops

SAN DIEGO, Calif.—Thirty women employed as strippers at two cabarets, Cheetah's Gentlemen's Club and Club Expose, have sued the San Diego Police Department, alleging that the cops—10 of them—held them at the clubs for over an hour and made them pose, "nearly nude," for a series of photos in various positions, as directed by the officers. The offenses were committed during police "raids" of the clubs in 2013 and 2014.

The women's attorney, Dan Gilleon, told the Los Angeles Times that his clients had been subjected to "unreasonable search and seizure" by the vice squad members, and that they had suffered from "emotional distress and pain" while under virtual house arrest as the police carried out what were later termed "inspections."

ADVERTISEMENT


Gilleon is suing for $1.5 million, or about $50,000 for each dancer.

The police, of course, have a different version of events.

"The San Diego code mandates we make these inspections," said police spokesman Lt. Kevin Mayer. "This is not a criminal matter, this is a regulatory matter."

According to Mayer, police have the power to make "regular inspections" of nude entertainment venues, and to check the IDs of dancers and other employees, and even to go so far as to photograph any tattoos the women may have, supposedly to further aid in identification. Moreover, Mayer claimed that if the women were on stage dancing, or about to begin their acts, the police waited until they were done before checking them out.

But legal commentator/attorney Jonathan Turley had some thoughts on the police action.

"Some 10 officers swarmed the club and forced the women to stand nearly nude while they allegedly took their pictures and made crude remarks," Turley wrote on his blog. "The officers reportedly ordered some women to lift what little clothing they had on to check for tattoos. These roughly dozen officers were needed for a license compliance inspection? The women were first asked to show their licenses, give their social security number, and answer questions. However, the officers then insisted the women line up in the back of the dressing room and be photographed...

"While the police insist that they have the right to photograph these women for their tattoos, I fail to see the justification as part of a licensing inspection," he continued. "These women are working in a lawful business. I do not see police demanding that fast-food workers or truckers strip for tattoo shots to confirm that their licenses are accurate. Why should strippers be subject to this demeaning process but not other workers. If someone is arrested, there is a valid need to photograph them but these women were not being arrested. Furthermore, if any of these officers personally retained or distributed these pictures, they should obviously be fired on that basis alone."

In March, the women had filed a claim with the city against the offending officers and their superiors, but that claim was rejected by city officials, leading to the lawsuit filed yesterday.

"Either the officers acted maliciously, knowing they were violating claimants' civil rights or SDPD's failure to train the officers amounted to deliberate indifference to the claimants' rights," Gilleon said.

Howard Levine Lends Name to Hot Mess Young Girl Title

Howard Levine Lends Name to Hot Mess Young Girl Title

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Veteran salesman Howard Levine has put his own irreverent stamp on the latest from Hot Mess Entertainment by crafting a typically farcical title with a very personal touch for the young girl-themed release. St. Howard's School for Unwed Mothers is shipping now from his Exile Distribution.

In promotion of the eponymous addition to the Hot Mess catalog, Levine cracked that he intends to open an actual institution of the same name. 

"I have always dreamed of having a school for unwed mothers, runaway girls and high school dropouts looking for a father figure," Levine proffered. "Bad girls are just so hot, but that's not why I want a school—it would be to give back to the community."

ADVERTISEMENT


He continued, "If the proceeds are substantial enough [from the sale of St. Howard's School for Unwed Mothers], I will direct all of my commission to starting that school. But that means we'll have to get over 700 pieces out. Jesus, that's not easy."

Describing the type of candidates he would envision enrolling in this "school," Levine said, "I'm looking for the worst of the worst, like girls who do lesbian stuff right in the shelter. They need the most guidance."

In conclusion, Levine asserted, "I have a dream ... a wet dream, actually."

To order St. Howard's School for Unwed Mothers, contact Levine at (818) 576-9464 or howard@exiledist.com.

Porn starlet's story is that she fights crime as sexy masked crusader

Dillion Harper Pens New Graphic Novel Selfie 'Velvet Sinn'

Posted Jul 24th, 2014 12:14 PM

LOS ANGELES—Those who are into cosplay might like to know that adult actress Dillion Harper has developed a superhero alter ego, and her name is "Velvet Sinn." Just like Peter Parker, but with boobs, the graphic novel of the same name features the pornographic girl-next-door fighting crime, and is now available to comic fans and fans of Dillion everywhere.

 “I’ve been working hard creating Velvet Sinn,” said Dillion. “She’s my badass alter ego, who isn’t ‘sugar and spice and everything nice.’ She’s tough, sexy, and doesn’t take any crap from anyone. It’s been a fun outlet for me, and we are looking forward to working on the next issue.”

ADVERTISEMENT


The comic book sells for $4.95; to purchase a copy of Velvet Sinn, email here.

The storyline features Dillion Harper, a pretty little thing always trying to be a normal, middle-class girl. But Dillion has constant visions and voices in her head about fighting crime, while using her powers of beauty to right the wrongs of people everywhere. Alone in her bedroom, she keeps her secret quiet, while practicing her moves and pretending to be just like all of the other young ladies. However, after becoming an adult superstar for two years and amassing countless fans, Dillion decides she can no longer hide in the shadows of her bedroom—and so, Velvet Sinn was born.

The ten-page, action-packed comic book is produced by Big Boy Studios Comics and Artist Island Management, and made its premiere during Dillion’s appearance at Exxxotica Expo in Chicago earlier this month.

Dillion Harper is featured in Penthouse magazine’s annual July/August “Badass” issue, on sale at newsstands everywhere. The steamy outdoor set features the girl-next-door all wrapped up in fellow starlet Catie Parker, in a hot girl-girl photo layout.

The starlet is currently working on her very first website. Fans may follow Dillion Harper on Twitter.

Four Strikes Plan to Target UK Digital Pirates Starts Next Year

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off

The scheme, which is simlar to the Six Strikes plan used in the States, excludes porn.

Four Strikes Plan to Target UK Digital Pirates Starts Next Year

UNITED KINGDOM—Following years of negotiations between UK ISPs and agents for the music and movie industries to develop ways to increase consumer awareness about digital piracy, the Voluntary Copyright Alert Programme (VCAP) is set to roll-out next year. Under the plan, consumers who are caught infringing copyrights online could receive four warnings about the illegal activity, similar to the six strikes system used in the United States and the three strikes method used in Italy and France.

ADVERTISEMENT


According to the BBC, "The warnings are part of a larger scheme that aims to educate people about copyright and legal ways to enjoy digital content. Starting next year, up to four warnings annually will be sent to households suspected of copyright infringement.

"But if people ignore the warnings," it added, "no further action will be taken."

It is that last claim, that no further action will be taken, repeated by several other media outlets, that caused many to criticize the scheme as "toothless."

But TorrentFreak's Andy, in an impassioned article posted today, argues that media reports that claim that digital piracy has been "decriminalized" are not only mistaken, but are also dangerously misleading because, he argues, "to suggest otherwise only puts people at unnecessary risk. File-sharing remains ILLEGAL in the UK, guaranteed."

He adds, "As detailed in our previous article, VCAP is a voluntary (that’s the ‘V’ part) agreement between some rightsholders and a few ISPs to send some informational letters to people observed infringing copyright. This means that the mainstream music labels and the major Hollywood studios will soon have an extra option to reach out to UK Internet users.

"However," he continues, "whenever they want to—today, tomorrow or next year—any of the copyright holders involved in VCAP can still file a lawsuit or seek police action against ANYONE engaged in illegal file-sharing—FACT."

Not all forms of digital content are included in the scheme, however. Andy notes that in addition to video games, "Porn companies/trolls aren’t involved in the VCAP scheme either and any of those could head off to court to obtain the identities of people they want to sue. It’s happening in the UK. There’s a VCAP-style scheme in the United States too, often referred to as 'six strikes,' and that has done nothing to stop companies like Malibu Media filing lawsuits almost every day."

Andy fears that people will not be paying close attention, will believe the erroneous headlines about decriminalization and will put themselves at increased risk of legal action.

"VCAP," he writes, "will make it less likely that people will be pursued by the major record labels and movie studios in the UK, " but it "doesn’t eliminate the threat." That threat could be even more acute for digital pirates who also fail to realize that porn is not a part of VCAP.

Ofcom: Most New ISP Customers Reject Porn Filters

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off

Initial phase of rolling out "family friendly filtering" is complete. The next phase, to be completed by the end of the year, will target existing customers.

UNITED KINGDOM—Judging from yesterday's official release of UK regulator Ofcom's second of three reports on the rollout of the nation's "family-friendly network level filtering service," the government has overestimated the interest new ISP subscribers would have in the filtering scheme agreed to by the country's ISPs as part of Prime Minister David Cameron's promise to protect the nation's children from internet porn. 

It turns out that the percentage of new subscribers opting in for the porn filter hovers in the single digits for all but one of the four large fixed line internet service providers—BT, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin Media— assessed by the report. TalkTalk, which rolled its filter out the earliest (May 2011), reported an adoption rate of 36 percent. BT, which started its filter in December 2013, reported that 9 percent of new subscribers opted to filter, Sky (Nov. 2013) reported 8 percent adoption, and Virgin Media, whose filter was not implemented until Feb. 2014, after the government deadline, reported that only 4 percent of new subscribers chose to filter at the network level.

ADVERTISEMENT


Of the four ISPs, all but Virgin reported that 100 percent of all new subscribers had been presented with the decision to choose to filter or not, as was mandated by the government. Virgin Media, on the other hand, could only lay claim to 35 percent of new customers being presented with the choice.

According to the Ofcom report, "The majority of new installations involve an engineer visit. Virgin Media understands that many engineers avoid the full broadband activation process altogether on the grounds that the process adds to the installation time. As a consequence, Virgin Media estimates that since the launch of WebSafe in February 2014, only around 35 percent of new customers had been presented with an unavoidable choice about implementing the filtering service. Neither Child Safe nor Virus Safe is active without the customer specifically consenting to turning the filters on." The ISP said that it would up its game by implementing "a number of additional opportunities for the customer to see the choice and chose its network level filtering product."

Focus now shifts to existing customers, all of whom will by one means or another be contacted by the ISPs in order to make their "unavoidable choice." The current report outlines the various methods each ISP intends to use to get the attention of their subscribers, including the use of pop-ups, email and prompts that present themselves to customers when they log into account management or other services.

Porn is only one category of content available for filtering by the four leading ISPs, which in fact only share categories for pornography, suicide and self harm, hacking and drugs. All also share the crime, violence and hate category, except that the TalkTalk filter does not cover crime specifically. Other categories include dating, gambling, games and even social networking, to name a few. The only ISP that offers filtering for each of the 14 categories listed in the report is BT.
