Industry Stalwarts Attend Cal/OSHA Standards Board Meeting

Posted Jul 22nd, 2016 04:46 PM by Iris Blocks

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Yesterday the Cal/OSHA Standards Board held its monthly meeting in Oakland at the Harris State Building Auditorium, and on the agenda was the continued fight over regulation of the adult entertainment industry—specifically the government-mandated use of barrier protection during the shooting of sex scenes.

The Free Speech Coalition has been at the forefront of the fight against proposed regulations, and the organization has been especially focused on pushing Cal/OSHA to pay attention to testimony from stakeholders the adult industry.

On the opposing side, of course, is AIDS Healthcare Foundation, under the leadership of its porn-loathing chief, Michael Weinstein.

Both sides have filed petitions to request changes in the regulatory language for §5193, the current California law regarding bloodborne pathogens, that the Standards Board will consider at its August 18 meeting.

Up in Oakland on July 21 to represent the adult industry’s interests were attorney Karen Tynan, director Fivestar and performers Ariel X, Sam Solo and Mona Wales—fighting the good fight, as evidenced by their posts on Twitter.

Mona Wales tweeted, “If porn isn’t political then why is it a part of the gop platform? & why did I attend this #calosha hearing today?”

Ariel X implored, “Performers, please save the date Aug 18th in walnutcreek calOSHA standards review for adult industry. Be heard no matter what your view.”

The Free Speech Coalition wasn't the only industry group represented at the event. Phyllisha Anne of the International Entertainment Adult Union was in attendance, and Wales spoke to the board as an active member of APAC, the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee.

Wales shared her speech to the board with AVN, and it reads in part, "I was here in February and it is a pleasure to address your board once again, and I thank you for your decision to include adult performers in the discussion process. As an APAC member I would like to urge you to adopt the FSC bloodborne pathogen plan. As a woman, I would like say that it is my body that these regulations will impact. I should be able to have control over my sexual and reproductive rights. I thank the Cal/OSHA board for recognizing these facts and I look forward to working with your board in the future to keep our workers heathy and safe."

Finally, Tynan shared a link to an article on HIVPlusMag.com, “Op-Ed: 10 Worst Offenses of AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s Michael Weinstein.” Read it and get fired up not only about the next hearing on August 18 but also for the November election in California, when the Weinstein-supported Proposition 60 will be on the ballot.

Male Escorts Made Out Like Bandits at RNC

Male Escorts Made Out Like Bandits at RNC

CLEVELAND—The last piece of confetti has fallen at Quicken Loan Arena in BelieveLand and the Republican National Convention has come to a close. But has the last dollar for escorts in the greater Cleveland area been spent yet?

According to tabloid newspaper New York Post, escorts did very well during the RNC. But that was to be expected, right? Every year stories are written about the anticipated increase in prostitution in major cities hosting everything from the World Series to the Super Bowl and the Olympics.

ADVERTISEMENT


What might be surprising to some (but not to media observers here at AVN) is the type of escorts who did well during the three-day convention: gay male escorts.

“Business has been way better. I’ve seen 10 clients so far,” one male escort told the newspaper.

Reporters for the paper contacted several escorts in the Cleveland area and found the gay male escorts were raking in the cash—sometimes as much as six times the amounts they normally make—and much of their businesses was coming from married white men, many of them between the ages of 40 and 50.

“Most of them were first-timers. You could tell they were nervous, but once they became more comfortable, they seemed to be having a good time,” an escort told reporters.

But, the Post reported, their female counterparts didn’t reap the rewards of having thousands of new visitors in their fair city.

“Has business been better for me? Honestly, no,” one woman told the Post before hanging up.

The Daily Dot website also reported that the “Men Seeking Men” section of Craigslist in the Cleveland area also saw a major uptick during the convention. Some of the juicier posts? “RNC bitch for black dicks—u don't have to vote, you need to fuck me (m4m),” “Son Seeks Dad at RNC (m4m)” and “RNC TOPS—Seed a Democrat (m4m).”

Flashback Friday: Kate McKinnon Meets Nina Hartley

Kate McKinnon Meets Nina Hartley

LOS ANGELES—Actress and comedienne Kate McKinnon has been getting plenty of attention for her turn as eccentric scientist and all-around badass Jillian Holtzmann in the Ghostbusters reboot, but newcomers to her fandom might not be aware of her other skills, including a little something she picked up from Nina Hartley.

The 32-year-old out lesbian made a name for herself impersonating Hillary Clinton and Ellen DeGeneres on Saturday Night Live, but got her TV start a decade ago on The Big Gay Sketch Show. Her co-star on that Logo TV show, Julie Goldman, had a short-lived series eight years ago titled Celesbian Interviews, one episode of which featured porn star Nina Hartley. During the episode, Hartley talked about why she considers herself a heterosexual butch dyke and gave a down-and-dirty explanation of how to have sex with a woman, including how to pull her hair.

ADVERTISEMENT


In the final two minutes of the episode, McKinnon was called in to help with the hair-pulling demonstration and was left a little … flustered.

“Good hair pulling makes the right woman melt, and bad hair pulling makes her want to slap you upside the head,” Hartley said before calling McKinnon on set to help her demonstrate.

“That’s … uh … uh-huh uh-huh huh!” McKinnon says (OK, moans) while receiving Hartley’s special attention. 

When the teaching is done, McKinnon attempts to leave the set.

“Sorry I wrecked the poster,” she says on her way out. “I think I need to go to the bathroom …”

It’s difficult to find the entire episode online, but the clip can be found on YouTube.

ADVERTISEMENT


Though it seems writer David Moye is about as versed in adult cinema as Melania Trump is on the nuances of plagiarism (note the subhead: "These films actually have stories as well as sex"), Fishbein's venerable expertise carries the day, with his list proving a mandatory viewing guide for anyone interested in bolstering their porn literacy.

Fishbein's top 10 list is as follows:

1) Nothing to Hide, Cal Vista, 1981

2) The Opening of Misty Beethhoven, VCA Pictures, 1975

3) Scoundrels, Command Video, 1982

4) The New Devil in Miss Jones, Vivid Entertainment Group, 2005

5) Blonde Ambition, Video-X-Pix, 1980

6) Fallen, Wicked Pictures, 2008

7) Corruption, SexZ Pictures, 2006

8) Roomates, Video-X-Pix, 1981

9) The Fashionistas, John Stagliano/Evil Angel, 2002

10) Pirates, Digital Playground/Adam & Eve, 2005

The full article can be found here.

Fishbein producted X-Rated: The Greatest Adult Movies of All Time with partner Darren Roberts for their Plausible Films. It was directed by industry vet and onetime AVN managing editor Bryn Pryor, and debuted on Showtime in February 2015.

The documentary is now available through Amazon Video, Vimeo and other VOD providers.

Former iBill Mogul Galanis Pleads Guilty to Securities Fraud

Former iBill Mogul Galanis Pleads Guilty to Securities Fraud

NEW YORK—Jason Galanis—who was formerly with the troubled-now-defunct company iBill and son of John Peter Galanis, a con man in his own right—pleaded guilty Thursday in a federal court in New York to securities fraud and other charges.

The charges stemmed from Galanis’ involvement between 2009 and 2011 with the publicly traded company Gerova Financial Group Ltd.

Federal prosecutors claimed Galanis was the ringleader of a multimillion-dollar fraud scheme that acquired shares of the company and then manipulated the market by cashing out.

ADVERTISEMENT


His sentencing for the plea is scheduled for December.

In 2004, Galanis—who hails from Los Angeles—co-led a group with iBill’s former CEO Garrett Bender in buying iBill from Intercept Payment Solutions, which originally purchased the credit card processing company in 2002. Reports at the time said Galanis’ father had a “heavy if not controlling hand on Jason’s businesses, which have been involved in the spectacular blowup of a colorado bank and millions in losses for commodity giant Cargill.” But those reports didn’t stop Forbes magazine from publishing a feature on him and dubbing him “Porn’s New King.”

The 46-year-old Galanis and iBill have a lengthy, complicated and shady history in adult, which AVN covered here, here and here.

Galanis’ father was a financier in the 1970s and 1980s who became a notorious white collar criminal who was tried and sentenced in 1988 to 27 years in federal prison. In 2001, he was released from prison on a work release program and disappeared. 

The younger Galanis also was charged with cheating a Native American tribe and investors out of $60 million, but he has pleaded not guilty to that charge.

Behind the Scenes of 2017 AVN Awards Ad Campaign

Aspen Rae, Riley Reid Take First Step On Road to Vegas

Behind the Scenes of 2017 AVN Awards Ad Campaign

CHATSWORTH, Calif.Aspen Rae and Riley Reid took different paths to todays high-stakes shoot, but now theyre working as a team in more ways than one.

Rae made a name for herself as one of the most bankable live-cam models on the internet, cutting the ribbon to open the 2016 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in January; Reid, meanwhile, carved her place in porn history with a record haul at the 2016 AVN Awards, where she won Female Performer of the Year among other honors.

ADVERTISEMENT


But even though they only met a few weeks ago, theyre warming up to each other on this steamy afternoon in the San Fernando Valley as they shoot the national ad campaign for the 2017 AVN Awards Show sponsored by Chaturbate and MyFreeCams. The pair will co-host the 34th annual ceremony that has become the biggest night in adult entertainment on Jan. 21 at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas.

Rae, who modeled for the 2016 AEE ad campaign, also tasted the AVN Awards spotlight as a presenter at this years show.

I was up there for 30 seconds to give one of the awards out and I was so nervous,” Rae recalls. I was like, 'oh my god this is huge,' and then next year Im hosting it. Its going to be really fun.

Veteran photographer Keith Munyan is working closely with the campaigns creative director, Gavin Antill, on the look and feel of the shoot, which will feature the girls in lacy black lingerie juxtaposed with glittering gold and sultry red backdrops.

I want it to be glamorous but at the same time feel more personal,Antill tells me as the girls do some test shots for Munyan, the go-to photographer for AVNs ad campaigns whose adult industry resume includes numerous feature box covers for Wicked Pictures’ award-winning movies.

Ive worked with him many a times,” says Reid, the 25-year-old native of Miami Beach who started her career in 2011 and has performed in more than 400 movies en route to reaching the pinnacle of the profession in January. Ive shot at his house a bunch. I feel like I know him more on a personal level. I love him. Hes so great the way he motivates you and gives you really good direction.

Reid in January won seven AVN Awards, four of which came from her career performance in Being Riley, the remarkable showcase produced and directed by Greg Lansky for his Tushy imprint distributed by Jules Jordan.

In addition to Female Performer of the Year, she won Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene, Best Anal Sex Scene, Best Star Showcase and Best DP Sex Scene as well as fan-voted awards for Favorite Female Performer and Social Media Star.

She and Rae look sensational together moving slowly to the progressive house music filling the new studio space at AVNs Chatsworth headquarters, while Munyan snaps away and the pro behind-the-scenes crew documents the action.

Just a couple days ago Rae was flying a helicopter as she continues her training to be a pilot. These days the 25-year-old is either practicing her aerial skills, web-camming or staked out in the gym, where she is training for her next bodybuilding competition in October, when she will debut in the figure category.

Those are like my three things in lifehelicopters, gym and either porn or web-camming,” says Rae, who debuted on MyFreeCams in March 2010 and was crowned Miss MFC in October of that year.

Her live shows now often draw 2,000-4,000 viewers as one of the top models on the platform.

In addition to her cam persona, she diversified her repertoire with girl/girl porn scenes in recent years, doing about 20 so far, including more than a dozen for Girlfriends Films, which released a showcase called The Aspen Rae Experience in 2015.

Rae says she met Reid at the first ever AVN House Party on June 9, when they were announced as hosts.

Weve kind of been flirting online,” Rae admits. She did an interview and was asked what girls do you want to work with and she was like, I know Aspen Rae wants to work with me.’ So weve been like just waiting for our moment to happen. We still havent had sex yet, so hopefully thats just around the corner, too.

Rae shot mostly for Twistys for her first year-and-a-half as a girl/girl performer and then gradually started shooting for select others.

And I just did my first light bondage for FM Concepts. So Im starting to do different things and expand a little bit,” she says.

Several looks and set design changes later, Munyan, Antill & Co. declare the day a wrap. To no ones surprise, the shoot flowed into a few unanticipated directionsand the results were sizzling.

That was unexpected,” Antill concludes. It was really amazing. The magic happened. I think it was the best one yet.

It was such a great day, Rae tells me. The hours flew by. It was just chill. We got everything done and its still light outside. I think the shoot was fantastic.

She adds, With Riley things are just easy. I think were going to be able to build an actual friendship and were going to have that real chemistry that is so important on stage. 

Reid agrees.

I got to see some of the photos pulled up on the computer and I got to see some of the behind-the-scenes photos and it looks beautiful and epic and gorgeous,” Reid says with a smile. 

And her rapport with Rae couldnt have been better.

We both read each others body language,” Reid reveals. We were both very considerate and aware of each others body not wanting to cover too much of each other. 

Neither of us are like the star of the show. Were both playing it very equally which is really nice. Just her energy is incredible. Shes chill, down to earth, not like a diva. She just made it feel like weve done this a million times.

Doc Johnson Marks 40 Years With Hollywood Soiree

Doc Johnson Marks 40 Years With Hollywood Soiree

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—Pleasure products manufacturer Doc Johnson is celebrating its ruby anniversary—that’s 40 years for those who don’t keep up on traditions—and at the end of the ANME Founders Show, company officials and employees hosted a number of distributors, retailers and more at a Hollywood party July 20.

The soiree started on the roof of Hollywood toast spot Madame Tussaud’s on Hollywood Boulevard, where a dance floor with the manufacturer’s logo was surrounded by tables adorned with floral centerpieces. Attendees mingled as waitstaff passed through with hors d’oeuvres. Bar stations offered a number of cocktails, including two drinks themes for the night: Doc’s Orders, a mixture of bourbon, iced tea and juices; and the American Bombshell, flavored vodkas mixed with juices and more (named after, of course, one of Doc's signature lines).

ADVERTISEMENT


Before the doors were opened to the three-story museum that features realistic wax sculptures of various celebrities staged in various settings, Ron Braverman, who founded the company in 1976 (read about the business in this AVN article and see a photo gallery of the North Hollywood, Calif.-based company on AVN.com), addressed the crowd.

“It’s 40 years, and really, it’s gone by in a blink,” he said.

Braverman talked about how, when he started the business with a 1,300-square-foot facility and eight employees, he believed that was as high as he could go. There was never the idea, he said, that 40 years later he would have a crew of more than 500 people, three of whom have been there from the start.

Braverman, who talked about how he’s given his life to the industry he loves so much, also thanked others who helped grow the industry in its early days: Kenneth Guarino, founder of Metro, who operated stores in New England; Bob Pine Sr., founder of Williams Trading Co. who got his start driving around the East Coast with stag films in the trunk of his car; Mike Moran of Lion’s Den; and more.

“I am proud to be in the business and standing shoulder-to-shoulder with you,” Braverman said. “I also have a great team of people with me every single day … I don’t really think of them as people who work for me, but people who work with me.

“You can’t do it without your vendors, you can’t do it without your clients, you can’t do it without your friends,” he continued.

Before closing out his remarks for the evening, the elder Braverman took the opportunity to sing the praises of his children: son Chad, who serves COO for the company, and daughter Erica, who is the business’ marketing manager.

“To be able to do what I do every day and come into my office and have my children there, getting to see my children every day is one of the real blessings of life,” he said to rounds of applause. “It’s fabulous to see how they’ve matured, taken charge and stepped up to the plate to let the old man leave every day at 1.”

Following the brief remarks, guests were able to wander through the museum, enjoy a catered dinner from Southern California staple In-N-Out Burger, pose for pictures with the wax statues, enjoy tunes spun by two DJs and take home a souvenir 3-D wax mold of their hand.

New Sensations Announces Release of 'Squirt-A-Holic'

Posted Jul 20th, 2016 12:40 PM

LOS ANGELES—New Sensations has announced the release of Squirt-A-Holic, a new squirting showcase helmed by director William H. and toplined by 2016 AVN Female Performer of the Year Riley Reid.

ADVERTISEMENT


"New Sensations is always spoiling the shit out of me," Reid said. "The most recent pleasure I had was working with William H. for his release, Squirt-A-Holic. I love shooting with him and his style of camera work. He's always so fun with having us pick our own music and start feeling ourselves to the music and he captures that moment so good."

Reid is paired up in her scene with 2016 AVN Male Performer of the Year Mick Blue, whom she describes as the ideal partner to ensure a gushing performance.

"I had Mick Blue as my talent which is always more than a good time," Reid said. "He's one of the best fucks in the industry and never fails to make me squirt. I can't always promise that I will squirt, but book a scene with Mick Blue and the waterfalls will be pouring like its spring time! Days like that are why I love my job so fucking much."

A noted trailblazer in the squirting genre, William H. remains inspired by the act's powerful display of arousal and climax. It's a personal passion he hopes to reintroduce to a new generation of porn fans.

"I would like to take squirting back to its former glory," H. said. "It's such a great visual. Not every girl squirts the same so each scene is unique. In porn you never really know if the girl is coming, but with squirters you have visual evidence. I get the shots blasting my camera every scene, but that's the only way in my opinion. I'm having a great time and hope the new generation enjoys it as much as me."

Squirt-A-Holic also features performances by Anna Bell Peaks and Ramon Nomar, Cindy Starfall and Mr. Pete, Luna Star and Chad White. The DVD has a runtime of 148 minutes and includes a photo gallery, a Behind-the-Scenes featurette, and two bonus scenes.

NakedSword.com’s NSFW Picks Up ‘Alfa’

Posted Jul 20th, 2016 10:35 AM

LOS ANGELES—NakedSword Filmworks has picked up Javier Ferreiro’s Alfa following the film’s screening at OutFest Los Angeles.

NSFW is the independent film arm of gay adult site NakedSword.com.

“We’re proud to bring Alfa to the NSFW audience,” said Tim Valenti, founder of NSFW and president NakedSword. “Despite the political progress we’ve made in recent years, stories about LGBTQ sex and sexuality are still regarded as difficult by traditional studios. As a gay adult company, we can be fearless in the topics we take up and the films we broadcast.”

ADVERTISEMENT


Shot in Cuba, Alfa tells the story of Alfa Mendez, a Cuban gay porn actor, who returns to the set for his first day of filming without his longtime partner, Yerry. Ferreiro shot the film while a student at the Escuela Internacional de Cine y Televisión outside of Havana. The film will debut online, via NSFilmworks.com and NakedSword.com in August.

The deal was negotiated by Queer/Art/Film curator and former Outfest programmer, Adam Baran, who has served as curator for NSFW since its launch in March.

A separate NSFW original production, Brontez Purnell’s 100 Boyfriends Mixtape, premiered at a sold-out Outfest screening on July 9. Two other films secured by NSFW earlier in the 2016, Hattie Goes Cruising and Doors Cut Down (En Malas Compañias) also screened at the festival.

“Outfest is one of the most important outlets in the country for LGBTQ film,” said Valenti. “We’re thrilled to have had such a strong showing by NSFW on our first year.”

The trailer for Alfa can be seen at Vimeo.com.

Among the dozens of adult movie stars expected to attend and participate in prize raffles will be Adam & Eve friends Jessa Rhodes, Jenna Ivory, Luna Star, Mercedes Carrera, Sarah Vandella, Lauren Phillips, Jezabel Vessir, Jennifer White, Cali Carter, Audrey Charlize, Ashlen Reed, Lucky Starr and dozens of others.

Ron Jeremy and Sunny Lane will be the emcees and James Bartholet of Galaxy Publicity will do red carpet interviews for Adam & Eve live at the event. He'll be accompanied by a number of his Galaxy Girls, including adult star Misty Stone, who will celebrate her relationship with Adam & Eve and the release of her lifelike 1AM Doll USA.  "I love Adam & Eve, so you know this party is going to be great," Stone said.

Babysitting the Baumgartners is Adam & Eve's movie adaptation of Selena Kitt's New York Times best selling novel from the book series on The Baumgartners. Kitt has tantalized mainstream readers with her sexually charged stories of love, sex and interpersonal relationships. Director and screenwriter Kay Brandt has turned the book into Adam & Eve's biggest adult movie of the year. A SFW YouTube trailer can be seen here.

The best-selling novel about a ménage a trois between a married couple and their sexually curious babysitter stars Mick Blue and Anikka Albrite as Doc and Carrie Baumgartner and Sara Luvv as babysitter Ronnie.

Also set to attend the party are Akira Lane, Lily Evans, Tori Lane, Loni Legend, Lily Cade, Lolly Ink, Porsha Carrera, Jay Taylor and Mila Jade. All performers age 21 and over are welcome.

"This is going to be a really fun party and if you're a known member of the adult industry you will have no problem getting in for free until midnight," remarked Will Ryder, who along with Scott David and Brad Thomas are organizing the bash with Adam & Eve.

Babysitting the Baumgartners streets this week. The party is next Friday, July 29, at Ora 1710 N. Las Palmas in Hollywood. Doors open at 10 p.m. and there is plenty of parking in two adjacent lots.

ANME Show Has Attendees Buzzing About New Offerings

ANME Show Has Attendees Buzzing About New Offerings

BURBANK, Calif.—While new products are always the highlight of every pleasure product trade show, a few specific items and collections really had people buzzing at the most recent ANME Founders Show, which continues today in Burbank, Calif.

One of the most talked-about items was the Buck-Off, a new stroker designed specifically for FTM transsexuals created by AVN Hall of Fame adult performer Buck Angel and Florida-based men’s sexual health products company Perfect Fit Brand.

ADVERTISEMENT


“I had the idea for this product years ago,” Angel told AVN. “I have heard from so many FTM people about how they have a hard time connecting sexually with their bodies while transitioning. I never had bottom surgery, and when I learned to connect with my vagina and learned how to love it, it changed my life for the better in so many ways. I have so many men like me tell me they can’t connect sexually with their bodies, or they don’t even want to touch their vaginas, and that makes me so sad.”

The Buck-Off is a soft silicone stroker that is shorter in length and narrower in girth so it can be more easily used by FTM, a group of people who often see their clitorises grow in size while they take testosterone. The flat, flared base creates a suction cup-like effect and the inside is textured with soft ridges that mimic the feel of a tongue, Angel said. 

“The way Perfect Fit made this is incredible,” he said. “It really feels like you are getting a blowjob.”

The Buck-Off can be stroked or just squeezed tightly, whichever the user prefers. The base also helps to stimulate the pubis, which can also lead to orgasm.

“I know this is a small market to target, and I am not in this for the money,” Angel said. “I am, though, all about education. And if I can help someone else connect with their bodies and have a wonderful sexual experience, then it’s all worth it.”

Sportsheets also had crowds gathering at their booth in the main room as reps showed off the new Midnight by Sportsheets collection. Each item in the collection falls in line with Sportsheets’ commitment to quality for BDSM items, but these versions are just as beautiful as they are functional.

“This line is very blinged out,” said Joanne Queenin, executive administrator. “Some of the items are to be treated like jewelry just as much as a BDSM item.”

A subset of the collection features nipple clamps, some adorned with double rows of pearls and others with clear sparkling gems. 

Several pieces in the line—the Lace Paddle, Lace Crop, Lace Cuffs, Lace Blindfold and more—feature a fabric that has the look of lace, but the pattern is printed directly on it, so there is no fear of snagging or ripping, Queenin noted.

Every item also features extra details Sportsheets is known for: double elastic straps on the Lace Blindfold, finished edges on the paddle and crop, a 30-inch heavy chain on the Lace Collar and Leash and more. The new collection is expected to start shipping by fall.

In the Jimmyjane booth, visitors were treated to a first look at the new Ascend line under the manufacturer’s Live Sexy banner. Another range of mid-tier vibrators, the Ascend collection debuts with four SKUs: The Ascend 1, a lay-on style massager that has a notch at the tip that can hug the clitoris; Ascend 2, which looks like the popular Form 2 vibrator with longer “ears”; Ascend 4, a massager that resembles a hand-held dumbbell that makes it suitable for external stimulation; and Ascend 8, which features two egg-shaped massagers at either end of a flexible silicone strand.

Sir Richard’s Condoms—which falls under the Diamond Products family of manufacturers with Jimmyjane and Pipedream Products—debuted the Element line.The collection marks the move by the condom company into creating pleasure devices and more for men. The first products in the line are the Element MS (masturbation sleeve), the Element PM (prostate massager) and the Element CR (cock ring).

Other standouts at the B2B trade show included the introduction of a glass bottle with a pump for Liquid’s Silver lubricant; the debut of the Rhythm by Kama Sutra: the lotions and potions manufacturer’s foray into sex toys that features five SKUs of pleasure products made from silicone and boasting powerful motors; and Impulse Novelties’ release of the Sofia Duo G, a manager that can bend to stimulate the G-spot and clitoris at the same time.

The ANME Founders Show continues through today.

Fresh Faces: Kendra Cole

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

This article originally ran in the July 2016 issue of AVn magazine. See the digital edition here.

Hometown: Milton, Wisconsin | Age: 20 | Height: 5-foot-6 | Weight: 100 pounds | Hair: Brown | Eyes: Brown

Back home in Wisconsin, Kendra Cole was a CMA, a certified nursing assistant (“Pretty much does everything a nurse does except hand out most medications”) doing home care assistance and “I was doing nude modeling on the side when I was told about shooting porn. I thought about it for a while, and decided a normal life was not for me. ‘Hello, sex industry, I’m home.’”

ADVERTISEMENT


She says that she likes “how open and kind everyone generally is. It’s fun and an awesome way to properly experiment and experience new things in a safe place.”

Her best scene so far, she says, is with Erik Everhard for Digital Sin’s I Seduced My Brother: “I was really inexperienced when I joined porn. In Wisconsin, I wasn’t picking suitable mates, I guess, because they all had either small penises or sucked in bed. I didn’t even like oral on myself before that scene. Erik was so intense I had to tell him ‘I can’t take any more.’ It was just too good. I realized it’s all about the skill level. I’d always loved giving oral, and now that I love receiving.”

To Cole, the AVN Expo is “my favorite thing of the whole year. It’s an awesome experience. In porn, you don’t get slut-shaming, all that weird stuff that normal people have to worry about. Wearing a dress that’s too short and getting talked shit to? That doesn’t happen. It’s like ‘I can see her nipples. You go, girl!’ It’s a whole thing of empowerment. You see the crazy BDSM people, the vanilla people. It’s great. It’s right around my birthday, it’s like a present for me.”

She says she would like to do a girl/girl scene for Girlfriends Films and has Christiana Cinn. Keiran Lee, A.J. Applegate, Dani Daniels and Seth Gamble on her to-do list. “I want to show people what I can do. I’m adorably awesome and people need to observe my new skills. I once had a deep throating scene and I didn’t even know what deep throating was. Now I can do it. I like having a dick down my throat. ...

“I’m a down and dirty bitch,” she adds with a giggle.

Her words to live by: “Be stronger than your excuses.”

James Deen Cal/OSHA Preliminary Hearing Set for September

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

James Deen Cal/OSHA Preliminary Hearing Set for September

Posted Jul 18th, 2016 09:57 AM

LOS ANGELESA preliminary hearing for adult star James Deen in his fight against Cal/OSHA and the AIDS Healthcare Foundation has been set for September.

Deen has refused to accept the citations or pay the egregious fines accompanying the complaints filed against his company, James Deen Productions, by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation in September of 2015. Deen plans to continue his fight and go to trial if Cal/OSHA does not settle before or at the hearing.

ADVERTISEMENT


“The adult industry has always been pushed around and used as a scapegoat," Deen said. "We are regularly bullied to help others further their agenda. At a certain point, enough is enough. The adult film industry is a constitutionally protected career. We are very strict with our safety methods because we care about one another. We want to create erotic material for an audience, but that in no way means that we are irresponsible in how we create it.”

In March of 2016, Cal/OSHA issued nine workplace safety citations against James Deen Productions, along with fines for $77,875 in regards to failure to use condoms and dental dams for female oral sex while filming adult films in California. The citations were brought against Deen after the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, a vocal anti-pornography non-profit organization, filed a complaint against Deen’s company along with eight other adult companies.

Deen intends to show that the regulations he is cited for violating are the same regulations that were voted down by Cal/OSHA’s own standards board when there was an attempted act of creating a vertical regulation making section 5193 specific towards the adult industry. The vertical regulation of 5193.1 was decided as not being validly applicable to adult film production.

Since then, members of the adult film industry and representatives from Cal/OSHA have been working together to create proper regulations that will actually protect the workers. Deen continues to lead this fight against Cal/OSHA and unaffected outside organizations forcing unsafe and unnecessary regulations on an industry that already regulates itself extremely well. The adult industry already has a testing structure in place that is as safe or safer than any of Cal/OSHA’s proposed options.

No complaints have been made against Deen by performers or crew members of his productions. All members of the productions that Deen was cited for tested negative for STI/STDs before and after the productions. The complaints against Deen were strictly biased targeting from the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.

AHF’s president, Michael Weinstein, has been quoted saying, “We want to thank Cal/OSHA for acting so swiftly on our workplace safety complaint against James Deen Productions and Third Rock by citing and fining Deen, one of the industry’s most well-known producers and adult performers—and the one who is the most vocal critic and prominent public face of the industry in its opposition to condom use.

By taking a stand against the citations, Deen hopes to set a precedent that will allow the adult industry to continue to take control of their own bodies and the content they produce for their viewers.

Deen’s hearing is set for Sept. 12 and he will be represented by the Law Offices of Michael W. Fattorosi, P.C. located in Woodland Hills, Calif.

Adult Empire Launches 2nd Annual Empire Girl Contest

PITTSBURGH—Online retailer Adult Empire today kicks off its second annual Empire Girl contest that asks fans to help select the best adult performer to represent the company for the coming year.

"Adult fans give us valuable insight into which stars they are interested in and who has a consistent fan base, which is often different from what we might see on social media," AE director of marketing Megan Wozniak said.

ADVERTISEMENT


Round one of the contest places 50 of AE's top trending adult stars in the running, as based upon the site's leading sales. Round two voting will begin July 25, with a narrowed down field of 25 performers. Round three, beginning August 1, will narrow the field down further to the top 10 picks, and the final Empire Girl will be announced August 8. 

The winner will receive a grand prize of $6,000, plus a four-scene exclusive showcase feature contract with AE Films. Last year's winner, Dani Daniels, was spotlighted in the Holly Randall-directed Dirty Daniels, which has become a top seller on Adult Empire.

"AE customers are genuine smut fans who pay for their porn," Wozniak continued. "What better way to welcome their wishes than to give them who they want to see in our next showcase movie?"

AE welcomes fans to participate in the contest by submitting their online ballots here.

ANME Founders Show Marks 20 Years With Bevy Of New Products

ANME Founders Show Marks 20 Years With Bevy Of New Products

BURBANK, Calif.—The ANME Founders Show returned to Burbank once again, this time marking its 20th year as a B2B trade show that focuses on the sex toy and pleasure product industry.

The show was created by the Big Five—Topco Sales, Doc Johnson, CalExotics, Nasstoys and Pipedream Products—and all were on the scene to debut new products and ranges, and in some cases even a new booth.

Topco Sales—a manufacturer that made headlines recently following the appointment of industry vet Autumn O’Bryan as the new COO—had pledged to hold candid conversations with customers about the new direction of the company, and kept that promise at all levels, from the new booth to the shirts staffers wore to said staffers talking about the recent history of the company and its future.

ADVERTISEMENT


A new, more open booth greeted visitors and reinforced the message that Topco is “Invigorated.”

“We are really fired up and ready to re-establish ourselves,” O’Bryan told AVN.

Staffers in the booth wore shirts that echoed the messages written on the top of the booth: “Commitment To Quality,” “Consistent Delivery” and “Building Trust.”

Inside the booth were some of the new product offerings as well as popular existing lines sporting new packaging. Among the new items were the Climax Spinners, a collection of rabbit-style silicone massagers that boast six speeds and a shaft that rotates. Also new were the Climax Elite products: Clio and Diana. The pieces are powerful massagers that feature a finger loop to make them easier to position and control. The Clio is a lay-on vibe with “ears” that can hug a clitoris, while the Diana is a C-shaped vibrator that can be used in a variety of ways.

“It can be used externally, or inserted into the vagina or even used around a penis,” said sales rep Nancy Cosimini.

Also creating a buzz in the booth were the CyberSkin Stealth line of male masturbators. The strokers come with adjustable suction cup bases so they can be used hands-free or in the tub or shower. It also allows them to be used solo or with a partner. In some of the pieces, the sleeves are not only removable, but also reversible with a vaginal opening on one end and a mouth opening on the other.

“These give customers more bang for the buck … literally,” Cosimini said.

Doc Johnson—which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year—came out with guns blazing this year, releasing more new products than in recent memory. Among the biggest launches was the debut of the Kink by Doc Johnson line, with several dozen new SKUs.

“Every toy in this collection was done in collaboration with the people at Kink.com, who are arguably the leaders in BDSM content,” said Erica Braverman, marketing coordinator for Doc Johnson. “They were really involved in every step of every product.”

More of the products in the collection are made of silicone, but some—particularly the strokers—are crafted from Doc’s UR3 material.

Highlights of the collection include waterproof sheets—a fitted sheet, a flat sheet and pillowcases, all sold separately—as well as a Master Apron; a Power Wand with various silicone attachment that feature everything from anal beads to a Vac-U-Lock attachment for use with any number of dongs; and the Fucking Machine Power Banger, which has strong suction cups on each of the four legs that allow the machine to be used on a flat floor, surface or wall, and offers variable speeds and the ability to change the positions of the thruster.

Also new were the Panty Harnesses, which are cotton and machine washable with elastic waistbands and the ability to accommodate dongs, vibrators or packers.

In the Vac-U-Lock collection, Doc introduced kits, including an Experienced Seta Silicone Pegging Set, a Crystal Jellies Set and more. 

“Each of the hits features a number of themed products, and one product not available anywhere else,” said Ryan Brooks, marketing coordinator. 

Braverman noted the kits cost 10 to 20 percent less than buying each of the included items separately.

Among other debuts was the new American Pop! line, which features plugs, dongs and dildos in bright colors and made from Doc’s Platinum Premium Silicone. Brooks said the collection marks the first time the material has been used outside the Platinum Premium Silicone line.

CalExotics made a splash with bright colors similar to those in its popular Shane’s World collection in its new Mini Marvels line. The items—the Marvelous Massager, Marvelous EggCiter, Marvelous Bunny and Marvelous Flicker—are perfect as entry-level pieces, as well as additions to a more seasoned player’s toy box. They come with comic book-inspired marketing materials.

The manufacturer also revamped several collections with sleek new packaging, including the Dr. Joel collection, a Rings collection and the Emperor collection.

Several existing collections also received new additions, including the Gyrating Wand and Tulip Wand in the Inspire Collection; the Executive Vacuum Pump and Executive Big Man’s Pump in the Pump collection; and new styles with the rolling ball technology in the Embrace collection.

At Jopen, the manufacturer announced a new option for retailers interested in informational brochures. Retailers interested in the brochures will be able to select the number of brochures they need and have them printed for free; they need only pay for the shipping.

Nasstoys showcased several items released since the last ANME show in January. Among the biggest items was the Natural RealSkin Hot Cock, which features 12 functions, heats up to 113 degrees F and is bendable and posable. Also new in the booth were the Cockring with Tickler set for couples and the Sex Collection, which features rechargeable massagers, including the Orgasm Bunny, which has dual motors and offers seven functions and a curved handle that makes it more ergonomic.

A first for Nasstoys was the Get It On! Inflatable Strap-on Penis, which marks the entry of the manufacturer into the word of bachelorette items.

In Pipedream Products’ booth, visitors were greeted by a giant penis to represent the King Cock collection, which saw several additions. Among the new items were suspender harnesses; Play Hard Harnesses, which have larger O-rings to accommodate larger dongs and vibrators; the Vibrating Mini Sex Ball; and the Vibrating Inflatable Hot Seat.

Another major debut was the Dillio collection, almost a sister line to the King Cock range.

“The pieces are a bright pink, and offer many of the same shapes and sizes, but the coloring and name might be more appealing to more retailers and customers,” said Brian Sofer, digital marketing director. 

Pipedream also had crowds talking with the debut of some new extreme items: the Couples Sex Machine and the Rockin’ Chair.

The Couples Sex Machine has a thrusting end that can hold a number of dongs from the Kink Cock and Dillio lines, while the other end has a masturbation sleeve for men. The piece can be used solo by either men or women, or simultaneously by couples. The stroker side has a removable sleeve that comes in anal and vaginal options and two rows of beads that stroke the shaft. The entire unit comes in black or white and can be stored in the included duffel bag.

The Rockin’ Chair is a unique masturbator that features a hard plastic “seat” with a silicone patch at the front that covers a powerful rumbling vibrator. A corded remote powers the piece through its speeds and functions, and the bottom has a non-slip surface so it can be used solo and remain stable.

Sofer also noted the company will launch a new website this fall to make it easier than ever for retailers to find the support materials they need.

“The site is in alpha testing right now, and later this fall we plan to select beta testers,” he said. “When it launches it will be a more streamlined recourse for retailers to find the images, videos and more they need to support sales of Pipedream Products.”

The ANME show continues through July 19.

Filling out the cast are Jasmine Jae, Britney Amber, Bianca Breeze, Tommy Gunn, Eric John, Ryan Ryder, Lucas Frost and Alec Knight.

"Shooting an all-sex movie for Axel is always a treat," Akira said. "He sets the stage meticulously, but really lets the performers have sex the way they like, and captures the action beautifully. Plus, Eric John is a total foot guy, so it was super fun to get into the whole nylon theme with him."

For her part, Jade enthused, "What can I say about working on Nylon with Axel Braun? First up, he's insane! And by insane I mean an amazing creative genius, with an artistic eye and attention to detail that will have you mesmerized. I love Axel, and I love putting my ass in the air for fans to watch me take cock, and I guarantee you will love watching Tommy Gunn fuck the ever-loving hell out of me! So go ahead and buy this Wicked Pictures fuck flick and worship me through your TV right now!

"And if you mail me the DVD insert with a self-addressed stamped envelope I will sign it and mail it back to you," she added. "Tweet me at @kj_fetishmodel for my mailing address."

MyFreeCams Responds to 'WhoreNickels' Cam Show Controversy

Racial themes of model's July 7 show spark anger, outrage

MyFreeCams Responds to 'WhoreNickels' Cam Show Controversy

LOS ANGELES—The MyFreeCams model known as “WhoreNickels” is used to criticism for her unconventional shows, but some are saying one of her latest went too far.

WhoreNickels, aka Maggie Nickels, on July 7 performed a show on MyFreeCams.com she titled “InternetPopo” that entailed her dressing up as a police officer. Standing in front of a computer-generated background that simulated a squad car and yellow police tape, WhoreNickels during one sequence solicited tips for “Don’t Beat People of Color vs. Beat People of Color.”

A screenshot of the show circulated on social media in the hours and days following, sparking outrage in the cam community and prompting some models to call for WhoreNickels to be banned by MFC, citing violations of the site’s posted “Rules and Guidelines” prohibiting “abusive, inflammatory, or racist language.” 

“Yes, I am definitely aware of it,” Nickels told AVN Friday. “It was unexpected because I had actually planned for it to be a show where I dressed up as the internet police and the entire point of the show initially to me was to satirize people who were overly sensitive on the internet.

“I had this whole plan to dress up as a police person and I was actually looking for a fugitive going by the name of WhoreNickels, talking about all the horrible things this fugitive had done and I was looking for her.

“So I started the show and a lot of people reacted. They got really outraged about it. That was the whole point of the show was that people get really easily offended on the internet.”

No one was actually beaten during the show. But the swift and strong negative reaction to the overtly racial themes she was using struck a chord. 

The show happened on the same night that five Dallas police officers were fatally shot during a protest over recent police shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota. But Nickels said she was on cam at the time the news in Dallas was breaking and didn’t know about the tragedy unfolding. 

“At the beginning the show had nothing to do with people of color,” Nickels said. “It had nothing to do with police brutality. One of my members said, “don’t you know these police officers were shot in Dallas?’ I had no idea because I was on cam.”

Once Nickels was informed of what was happening in Dallas, she said she “pivoted toward it” in her live show. 

“I think it’s really important to push the boundaries of discussions. I’m a satire artist. Whether or not I’m actually racist is irrelevant to the argument. I exist on MyFreeCams in order to challenge people and engage people on a real level,” Nickels said. 

“Judging by how much of a reaction I got it’s a very important thing. People want to have these difficult conversations.”

But many models have taken issue with Nickels and MyFreeCams, one of the largest live-cam sites in the world. One of the most vocal models was Norma Chomsky, whose tweet on July 8 about the WhoreNickels show received 271 retweets and more than 500 favorites.

Chomsky (@normachomsky2) tweeted, “Unfortunately, I’m relying on my income from MFC until the end of this month, but consider this my notice,” attaching an additional screen-cap describing her disgust.

She said she brought the matter to the attention of two MFC execs, including the owner, at a model meet-up event at Exxxotica in Chicago.

“This show violated the rules of MFC which prohibit, ‘…abusive, inflammatory, or racist language,” Chomsky wrote.

She added, “These high profile incidents DEFINE the community of MFC and overshadow the less visible, under compensated, incredible work of other models. Permitting hate shows draws a specific audience and we can see the effects of that clearly-top models are white, skinny, cis, het girls and lower ranking models are abused by trolls seeking to destroy fat, dark skinned, alternative, and queer girls. MFC is owned by a white man that profits off the backs of women and his staff gleefully and conveniently turn a blind eye to profitable, racist shows. This is not a community I can continue to be a part of.”

Chomsky at post time had not responded to a request for additional comment.

But many others have taken to social media to state their objections to WhoreNickels’ show and their dissatisfaction with MFC for permitting it.

MFC model Georgie Sparks (@GeorgieSparksss) on July 7 tweeted, “if you think anything about what whorenickels does in her shows is okay, unfollow me. idgaf if it's not against the rules. she's vile.”

Sadie Marie (@thesadiemarie) on July 7 tweeted a clip of WhoreNickels’ show with the message, “Can MFC step up and perma ban this cunt? Whore Nickels is the Trump of MFC.”

MFC member SugarHi (@PosterOfAGirrl) posted a Tumblr blog entry about her thoughts. 

“There is no doubt that Maggie is a creative and talented cam model, she uses technology in her room that has never been seen on cam sites before,” SugarHi wrote on Tumblr. “She is able to create characters and entertains people to such an extent that participation in her room is huge. I was a fan of hers.

“However it seems that simply being entertaining wasn’t enough for her. Maybe she felt she wasn’t making enough money, I don’t know. Regardless of her intent, her actions have consequences…consequences which she doesn’t seem to care about.” 

SugarHi later continues, “When she performs as a police officer and accepts tips to either beat a person of color or not beat a person of color; whether she is racist or not she attracts racists to her room and gives them a platform to express their opinion. She calls it satire, but it’s not. Satire uses humor to expose truths or revelations, her shows don’t do that. Her shows are about creating shock, creating shock to make money. I’m not against making money, in fact in the past I’ve tipped Maggie, however…making money at someone else’s expense is just wrong. Making money in an offensive and racist way is wrong.

“Having said all this, I’m having trouble blaming Maggie for ALL of this. I actually put a lot of the blame on MyFreeCams. MFC has rules in place that specifically say no harassment of members/models and no racism. Yet Maggie (and others) has broken these rules multiple times and MFC has allowed it to happen. They’ve set a precedent that they are ok with this type of behavior from its models.”

In an exclusive statement Friday in response to the controversy, a spokesperson for MyFreeCams said:

“On July 7, 2016, the model ‘WhoreNickels’ broadcasted a controversial performance on MyFreeCams.com in which she dressed in a police officer costume and asked her audience to help decide whether she should or should not ‘Beat a Person of Color.’

“There is no question that her performance contained racist and inflammatory content.

“There was significant debate within the MyFreeCams community, among our members, models, and employees, about whether her performance constituted a violation of our Community Guidelines. Thank you to everyone that contributed to the conversation with various points of view. 

“Many felt that the racist nature of the performance must be taken literally and immediate action should be taken to protect the community, particularly during such a sensitive time in race relations. However, others pointed out that the model had a history of artistic performances and that this particular performance was clearly satire - defined as "the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people's stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.”

The MFC statement continued, “Artists have long used satire to bring much-needed attention to controversial issues in an effort to educate and inform the public, often when the issues are too sensitive to be confronted directly. 

“Before MyFreeCams launched in 2004, webcam sites were porn sites, and webcam models performed specific sex acts according to specific rules. We have worked tirelessly to change that - by nurturing an environment that empowers models to be independent, to be creative, to be innovative, and to be themselves.

“One of the core principles of our community is that models are artists, and that their expression deserves the same level of respect and protection as the works of a writer or stage actor. Being a webcam model does not disqualify a person from the freedom of artistic expression. Not all art is good or well-understood; nor does one have to agree with it in order to believe it must be protected.

“It is this reasoning that led members of our Community Standards team, who watched the performance as it was happening, to ultimately decide that WhoreNickels was using her artistic performance to bring light to the issue and therefore was not violating the spirit of our Community Guidelines. The team did not take any action against the model, even in the face of complaints and threats. It took courage and level-headedness during what must have been a very stressful time.

“To those that respectfully disagreed with their actions, we would like to thank you and tell you that your voice was heard and you are an integral part of the conversation helping shape the future of our community.”

Nickels, who is a 24-year-old former pre-school teacher from California who cams from Nevada, said the “InternetPopo” show “is probably one of the less offensive shows I’ve done.”

A full-time cam model on MFC since last October, Nickels has also performed shows dressed as Osama bin Laden, Jesus, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Stephen Hawking, among other famous figures.

“Gone are my days where I can sit as a cam girl and expect money for being pretty. I have to engage my audience,” Nickels said.

“First and foremost I’m an entertainer and I’m an artist. I’m promoting discussion and engagement is my job. Sometimes the engagement is positive and sometimes it’s negative, but it’s really about encouraging participation in whatever form it comes.”

Nickels has dressed up as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee Trump “four or five times” since January. She said she reads transcripts from his speeches “trying to convert people” to Trump during these shows; she’s taken similar approaches with Clinton and Sanders skits.

She did three consecutive shows—April 21-23—dressed as Osama bin Laden.

“When I was dressed as Osama, I did a game called 9/11 Jenga. For 911 tokens, I would knock down two Jenga towers. That got people really upset,” Nickels said, noting that “not all of my shows are political.”

“A lot of them are fairly run-of-the-mill.”

But Nickels said her politically themed shows are “very, very popular.”

“I usually have a lot more people viewing my political shows and my satire shows. For this most recent one on July 7 I got 130,000 impressions on my Twitter that day. So they get a lot of attention. That was definitely the most controversial one in terms of the reaction, but maybe not in terms of what I would consider the most controversial.”

Nickels added, “I’m not afraid to push the envelope. In some cases if you don’t go too far, you’ve not gone far enough.”

Despite the current backlash, she said she doesn’t want to suppress what kind of show she may do in the future.

“I don’t like to put limits on my art or my creative freedom. That’s something I appreciate about the MyFreeCams platform and is they really strive to preserve freedom of speech and creative expression. This is one of the only places on the entire internet where you can have that much creative expression.

“Whether it’s political or satire, I try not to my put any constraints on the possibilities of my shows. I’m not doing anything illegal or violent.”

Nickels said that no one from MyFreeCams has talked to her about her shows.

“A lot of models and some users have laid out their opinions,” she said. “It doesn’t bother me, you get used to it. If you can’t have difficult discussions and can’t be present for that…you need to be able to let people vent. You need to be able to let people have different opinions. You can’t try to silence either side of the argument or the conversation. I’ve become in many ways a straw man for racism and sexism. I’ve been lampooned for both. I’ve been accused of internalizing misogyny. Whatever it is I think it it’s really important to have these discussions.”

Adult industry attorney Marc Randazza, managing partner of the Randazza Legal Group, said cam girls are afforded the same First Amendment rights as porn producers.

“There is no distinction between a cam girl and an adult film producer when it comes to First Amendment protection,” Randazza told AVN Friday. “As far as obscenity goes, I don't think any of this would be considered to be obscene at all. ‘Obscenity’ is content that fails the Miller Test. Obscenity is not ‘content that upsets somebody.’”  

Nickels suggested that many who protested her police-themed show didn’t watch it or only saw a portion. 

“My members see the whole context. They are much more understanding in general. Most of the feedback in general came from people who only saw a screenshot of the show and they draw their own conclusions from a very limited bit. It’s like the online version of Telephone.”

The screenshot circulating was misleading, she claimed.

“A lot of people said I was beating a black person. I was actually pretending to beat my dog. It was this whole schtick. The dog was WhoreNickels’ accomplice and I was trying to get information out of the dog. Someone said they called SPCA animal services on me. It didn’t really happen. My members and my users understand it’s satire. Most of the reaction came from people who maybe watched five minutes of the show or saw the screenshot of it and heard second-hand information.” 

Regarding accusations that she broke the Rules and Guidelines set forth by MFC on July 7, Nickels said, “Ultimately I don’t put much stock in other people’s analysis of the rules. If MyFreeCams tells me to stop, I will.”

She said one of her upcoming shows is going to be "a 48-hour cam-athon" when she will dress up like a “Venezuelan miner” trapped inside a coal mine.

“Only tips will be able to get me out and rescue me,” Nickels said.

Starbucks Gives in to Enough Is Enough's Wi-Fi Filtering

Posted Jul 15th, 2016 05:18 PM by Iris Blocks

CYBERSPACE—Porn fans, cross Starbucks off your list of preferred hangouts. The coffee-slinging behemoth has caved into puritanical pressure from Enough Is Enough, an organization dedicated to “making the internet safe for children and families.”

Under yesterday’s headline on AVN.com, “No More Porn With Your Fries,” we offered readers solace that although McDonald's had decided to restrict customers from using free wi-fi in their restaurants to access pornography, the unrestricted net would still be available at Starbucks.

But Enough is Enough, which had lobbied Mickey D for more than two years, can now add Starbucks to their win column.

The group was aided in its campaign by another censorship cheerleader, the National Center on Sexual Exploitation.

"This is a huge victory," Donna Rice Hughes, president of Enough is Enough, told CNN. "We're proud of Starbucks and McDonald's for stepping up to the plate. Internet pornography is a public health crisis. Parents need to know which family restaurants are safe from online threats."

Doc Johnson at 40: A Family Portrait

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

A Family Portrait

This article originally ran in the July 2016 issue of Intimate magazine. Click here for a link to the digital edition.

Click here for a chronological photo gallery.

The Doc Johnson team will be attending the ANME Founders Show, taking place July 17-19 in Burbank, Calif.

In 1976, when Ron Braverman bought a small adult novelty company in North Hollywood, California, he had a vision. He knew what he wanted to create and what he wanted to do with the company and its products. But no one, probably not even Braverman himself, could have imagined the powerhouse Doc Johnson would become four decades later.

ADVERTISEMENT


Braverman, founder and CEO of Doc Johnson, was in adult before he entered the world of adult novelties and pleasure products.

“Early in my career, I got into the adult bookstore business,” Braverman told AVN. “I was based in Europe at that time, and a few years after that, I decided to move back to the United States to start an adult toy business there. The idea to found a sex toy company was largely based on my time in Europe. It seemed that Europeans had a different attitude toward the profit potential of the pleasure product industry, whereas American buyers were still more skeptical. Today, Americans have largely accepted the pleasure product industry as a legitimate business, and our success continues to grow both internationally and domestically.”

The small company Braverman eventually purchased originally sold some adult toys, as well as gag novelties and rubber fishing items.

“My plan from the beginning was to focus exclusively on creating a top-quality pleasure products company, with all manufacturing to be kept in America,” he said. “So, while we had a few novelty items early on, gag gifts were quickly phased out of the equation. Since day one, we have always truly been an American pleasure products manufacturer.”

The company’s growth was exponential, and Doc Johnson quickly came to be known as one of the Founders—five of the largest American sex toy manufacturers in the early years of the industry; CalExotics, Pipedream Products, Nasstoys of New York and Topco Sales rounded out the group. For many years, it wasn’t unusual for stores that sold sex toys to only stock items from those five companies.

Yet—as they do—times changed. More and more pleasure product manufacturers began entering the industry. Materials used to create the items changed through the years. And consumers became better educated and much more savvy about the products they used.

To stay at the top of the heap, Doc Johnson not only kept up with the changes, but took more than a few risks to be an innovator in the industry. The company was among the first to carry more unisex items that could be packaged to appeal to the straight and gay markets, as well as among the first to create niche products and lines. The company was among the first to offer toys molded from popular adult performers; and it was the first to offer a line of products molded from a TS performer (Wendy Williams).

“Staying ahead of market trends has always been a priority at Doc Johnson, but it’s much more important for us to follow our own instincts rather than try to blindly cater to all the latest trends,” said Chad Braverman, Ron’s son and the chief operating officer/chief creative officer for Doc Johnson. “Integrity is everything. The success we’ve achieved in working with new product concepts largely comes down to our deep-rooted understanding of the industry: its past and its present, while keeping a strong pulse on the future.

“Sometimes it is a challenge to work with concepts that don’t necessarily come pre-approved with an established track record for success, but our efforts have certainly paid off,” he said.

Though the years, through the ups and downs, though the changes in the industry, one thing remained almost constant at Doc Johnson: it was a family business, in more ways than one. While even the best mainstream companies these days might struggle to retain employees, Doc Johnson has kept many on for years—of roughly 500 workers today, the number of those who have been with Doc for the past 20, 30 and even 40 years reaches into the double digits.

“Nurturing employee relationships has been a constant during the company’s history, and that remains true to this day,” Ron said. “Personally, it makes me proud to have a family of people that I look forward to working with every day. All of us at Doc Johnson take enormous pride in our legacy and ensuring its future success.”

And Ron, who still will visit the manufacturing floor and chip in when needed, brought his children into the fold in more recent years. In addition to Chad, who has risen through the ranks at the company, daughter Erica is Doc Johnson’s marketing coordinator.

Spanning generations and representing the past, present and future of the company—as well as a segment of the pleasure product industry—each of the Bravermans brings a different perspective on where the industry, and Doc Johnson specifically, has been and where it’s headed.

“There really wasn’t an erotic market in 1976, in the traditional sense,” Ron said. “Sex toys were being lumped in with other types of novelty products. The market was prime for a business that was devoted solely toward sensual needs. Doc Johnson was the natural response to that demand.

“In 1976, the Doc Johnson factory in North Hollywood was just 1,500 square feet and had nine employees. Now, 40 years later, Doc Johnson is the largest pleasure products manufacturer in America, with a family of more than 500 team members, multiple buildings on a campus of more than 250,000 square feet, and a catalogue of more than 2,000 products,” he continued.

“We’re especially proud of the extraordinary results we have achieved while keeping the great majority of our products manufactured in the United States. Today, not only do we make over 75 percent of our products in America, but we also strive to create the most innovative and highest quality, body safe products on the market.”

For Chad, as the pleasure product industry continues to make waves and progress in mainstream, Doc Johnson can easily to continue to be an innovator and major player in the game.

“Society is becoming more and more open-minded and liberal when it comes to sexual health and wellness. I imagine that sex toys will become increasingly accessible to the mainstream, as far as social norms go. Packaging and design will also move towards the mainstream, with industry growth facilitating greater diversity and room to target more specialized demographics,” he told AVN. “Though the pleasure products industry has grown and evolved, originality and innovation have always been at the core of Doc Johnson’s business model—and that’s where we will continue to focus our energy in the future.

“We’ve produced some of the most groundbreaking products on the market since our early beginnings (our Original Pocket Rocket and iVibe Rabbit vibrators have both become household names), and we continue to raise the bar with developments like 2015’s TruSkyn, a pure health grade silicone that emulates the feel of real skin,” Chad continued. “Going forward, the public can expect more of what they love about Doc Johnson—exciting upcoming collections, new partnerships with top stars, and original creative marketing campaigns—as well as an overall betterment of our processes in all facets.”

Erica noted Doc Johnson—which has long been known in mainstream—will continue that relationship with fans and customers, utilizing every avenue available.

“There have been huge developments in both technology and societal perspectives since the 1970s. Not only are there more material options than ever, there have also been far-reaching changes in marketing and design preferences, as well as attitudes towards sex and sexuality,” she said. “One of our roles in the marketing department is to determine what drives our consumers, and how to make Doc Johnson’s products more accessible to the public. In recent years, we have increased our focus on outreach and branding. The marketing team spends a considerable amount of time interacting directly with customers through channels like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. Another top priority for us has been nurturing and strengthening relationships with journalists, bloggers, and other major influencers in both B2B and B2C sectors. We’ve secured high-level mainstream media placement on a number of top-tier platforms in 2016, and that will be a continuing theme for Doc Johnson going forward.”
