Axel Braun's 'Supergirl XXX' Flying to Retailers

LOS ANGELES—Axel Braun Productions contract star Carter Cruise reprises the role she originated in the director's hit of last summer, Batman v Superman XXX, with the long-awaited dedicated feature centering entirely on the character, Supergirl XXX: An Axel Braun Parody.

Shot over a four-month period, the latest from Wicked Pictures' comic book-devoted Wicked Comix imprint also brings back Ryan Driller as Superman and Derrick Pierce as Lex Luthor, while Wicked Girl Jesssica Drake portrays gossip columnist/business woman Cat Grant, and ABP contract sister to Cruise Riley Steele appears as Enchantress. In addition, 2016 AVN Best New Starlet nominee Katrina Jade turns up as Mercy Graves, with Van Wylde as Jimmy Olsen, Charles Dera as Batman and 2016 XRCO New Stud Damon Dice as the villainous Brainiac—to which role he committed himself to the point of shaving his head and being painted green.

"I just feel extremely lucky to be part of the Wicked family and be able to make movies that I can be proud of," Braun told AVN. "Supergirl XXX required Carter to push her acting performance beyond what you would normally expect from a superhero movie, and I have to say she delivered in spades. The range of emotions that she was able to convey is really quite impressive, and there is an effortless virtuosity in the way she portrayed this iconic character that is both subtle and intense. I cannot praise Carter enough, I am beyond thrilled to have her under exclusive contract, and I am just as stoked that Jessica Drake found time in her hectic schedule to grace my movie with a powerhouse performance as Cat Grant.

"Riley was incredibly sexy and deliciously evil as Enchantress, a role that she is about to reprise in Suicide Squad XXX," he added, "and Katrina Jade is nothing short of a revelation as Lex Luthor's assistant Mercy Graves. And of course Ryan Driller, who has now played Superman for me five times, is beyond perfect. Needless to say I am extremely grateful to my amazing cast and crew, I think the movie came out great and I'm looking forward to the fan response."

Supergirl XXX: An Axel Braun Parody hits retailers Monday, June 27, in a two-disc set containing behind-the-scenes footage, a non-sex version of the movie, three bonus sex scenes and more.

Amber Rayne's Cause of Death Ruled Accidental Overdose

Posted Jun 24th, 2016 06:16 PM

LOS ANGELES—The late adult star Amber Rayne died of an accidental cocaine overdose, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner's office confirmed Friday, according to multiple media outlets.

Rayne, an 11-year industry veteran with almost 500 movie credits, passed away on April 2 at her Los Angeles home at the age of 31.

According to the Coroner's Case Detail, "cocaine intoxication" was the sole cause of death and it was ruled an "accident."

Detroit native Rayne entered the adult industry in 2005 with a background in mainstream acting. Her performances were recognized with dozens of AVN Award nominations, most notably for her supporting roles in 2009's The 8th Day from Adam & Eve Pictures and 2015's Wanted from Adam & Eve and Wicked Pictures. In 2009, she won AVN's Unsung Starlet of the Year award.

Christy Mack Launches App Including Domestic Violence Emojis

Christy Mack Launches App Including Domestic Violence Emojis

LOS ANGELES—Adult performer Christy Mack has launched a new app, MackMoji, which not only features emojis and bitmojis of Christy and her favorite animals, but also includes emojis with a domestic violence theme.

“Unlike other emoji apps, this one serves a purpose,” the app’s description reads. “The handful of domestic violence emojis are designed to bring attention to the domestic violence cause and victims across the word. It’s difficult for victims to come forward and take a stand. Christy is using her voice and strength to help victims from around the world.”

ADVERTISEMENT


Mack, who entered the adult industry in 2013 and was a 2014 AVN Best New Starlet nominee, made international headlines in August 2014 after she suffered severe injuries—some of which she still has not revered from—at the hand of her former boyfriend War Machine, aka Jonathan Koppenhaver. War Machine (he legally changed his name) was eventually arrested and charged with a number of felonies. He could face life in prison if convicted; the trial is scheduled to take place July 11.

The MackMoji app, which was released June 23, features emojis of Mack, some of which have bruises and even a black eye. The app also features the Purple Pit Bull, which serves as a “bat signal” for those in need.

A portion of the proceeds from every downloaded app—which is available for $1.99 from iTunes—will be donated to the Break the Silence Foundation, which is a confidential support service for survivors of domestic violence.

The app will be updated often, with Mack designing many of the custom emojis herself.

The app is not the first time Mack has developed a product to benefit domestic violence survivors. Earlier this year, Mack teamed up with Pornhub to create T-shirts with Mack’s and other porn stars’ likenesses that are sold through Pornhub’s site; all profits are being donated to a charity of Mack’s choosing.

For more information on the MackMoji app, which is designed for both the iPhone and iPad, visit iTunes.com.

Will Brexit Affect the Adult Industry?

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

Will Brexit Affect the Adult Industry?

LOS ANGELES—North Americans woke up Friday to the news that a majority of British voters decided the United Kingdom should leave the European Union, and immediately started asking what Brexit—as the referendum has come to be known—means for the U.K., the EU and themselves.

The aftermath of the vote has seen many voters express regret for their “leave” votes, as well as the resignation of Prime Minister David Cameron, the fall of the British pound to a 31-year low and the reality of stock exchanges around the world suffering major losses. Right now, it’s unclear if the U.K.—comprised of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland—will remain intact.

ADVERTISEMENT


The unprecedented vote puts global economies into uncertainty, but analysts are already making predictions on how the decision will affect other countries. According to TheStar.com, Brexit could mean a number of changes to Canadian companies, including forcing those who invested in the U.K. to access the EU market to find alternatives.

PinkCherry.com is a Toronto-based e-commerce site for buying and selling adult novelties. Reps there said it’s unclear what, if any, effect the Brexit will have on their company.

“As we just focus on North America there is no immediate impact on us; however this is all new and how things play out on so many levels will be interesting,” Nancy Freedman, marketing manager for PickCherry.com, told AVN. “The economic impact locally and globally will certainly be something to watch.”

The decline of the British pound against the U.S. dollar means that U.S. exports of physical goods—including adult DVDs—could become more expensive for buyers with weaker currencies. Simply put, American-made porn DVDs and sex toys might be considered extravagances not worth buying if Britons now have to dip into their savings to cover for their everyday living expenses.

While there is definitely some sense of panic associated with the Brexit, there are no concrete ideas on long-term effects.

“Though there's a bit of chaos in the financial world the day after the U.K. vote, it's unclear what kind of lasting impact this decision will have on the global economy,” said Rainey Stricklin of Juicy Ads, a leading adult advertising network. “We once believed that porn was ‘recession-proof.’ We learned during the last ‘economic downturn’ that we're not immune. 

“We should always be concerned when it comes to potential changes in the economy and be prepared for fluctuations,” Rainey told AVN. “Whether it is this issue or not, we should all be ready for an eventual rainy day.”

Mitch Farber, CEO of Netbilling—which provides merchant accounts, multi-currency transaction processing, and call center services to thousands of e-commerce and retail companies of all sizes—told AVN he doesn’t believe there is much to worry about.

"Aside from an initial weakening of the British pound, which could affect spending from British consumers for porn and other sex-related goods and services, I don't foresee any long-term effect to the adult industry,” he said. “There will be a short-term economic impact felt worldwide that will stabilize relatively quickly."

Others in the industry said they are prepared to take a "wait and see" attitude, but will work hard to keep an eye on markets worldwide to see what impact the decision will ultimately have.

“Given that most in the financial industry expected a different outcome, it is hard to say the impact as yet,” explained Gary Jackson, managing vice president for CCBill. “But for our industry in general, anytime there is global instability in financial markets, we tend to see lower spending, and  consumers step back from purchases—essentially spending less when they feel insecure. So we need to keep an eye on sales trends with purchases, especially in EU and U.K. markets. Our obvious concern is how this will affect the future of the EU and the Euro—and the U.S.

“Until the now-defunct trade agreements have a pricing impact, currencies are obviously in flux right now with this, and currency exchange is likely to have a roller-coaster impact on margins for prices for products sold in GBP and EUR,” Jackson told AVN. “Most processing platforms like CCBill offer real-time currency conversion processes—and this is a time in which using something like Regional Pricing (regional localized pricing) will be of value in currency flux and can help protect margins. 

“As we offer several European payment options, there are going to be some questions on what this means to the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) integration initiative for the EU and how this pull-out will affect that network, at least in payment services in which the U.K. had been included,” he added. “The SEPA bank transfer system serves in Euros.

“Although so much is still up in the air with this historic change, CCBill will be watching and analyzing as it happens, but we do not at this point anticipate any significant impact on payment services like CCBill for our merchants,” Jackson said. “For merchants in the business who leverage a third-party provider, their trust is correctly placed in the processing experts to work across multiple banking regions, monitor changes in the financial and regulatory worlds, and adapt on their behalf, rather than forcing the merchant to bear the weight of managing these crazy changes themselves.  

“Webmaster Access will certainly be interesting this year!”

Lovehoney Australia, Paul Maginn Analyze Geography of Sex Toy Sales

Lovehoney Australia, Paul Maginn Analyze Geography of Sex Toy Sales

LOS ANGELES—Lovehoney.com.au has partnered with Paul Maginn, an associate professor at the University of Western Australia, to analyze and map the geographical distribution of more than $10 million in sales of adult product since the last election Down Under. 

“Adult retailing is big business in terms of sales and revenue,” said Maginn, a prolific researcher of the geography of sex work who is based in Perth, Australia. “The growth in the adult retail sector, especially online stores, plus the consumption of sex toys, lingerie and fetish-related products is a useful indicator not only of the state of our sexual consumerism but also our sexual citizenship.” 

ADVERTISEMENT


Maginn continued, “The data from lovehoney.com.au basically shows that adult products are being purchased by people across urban, suburban and regional Australia.

“I think what we are seeing here is the economic, social and cultural mainstreaming of adult retailing and sex toys. We are becoming more sexually curious and adventurous. This will invariably raise policy questions in relation to adult retailing, sexuality and commercial forms of consensual sex.”

By mapping this data at the federal electorate level the study has created what Lovehoney and Maginn are calling an “Oz Dildex Poll Rating.”

The “Oz Dildex” ranks the overall value and volume of sales of adult products by each electorate in order to identify the broad spatial patterns of sexual consumerism across Australia. 

This has created a table of “Australia’s sexiest electorates.”

The “Top 20” sexiest electorates are led by Deputy Opposition Leader, Tanya Plibersek, the member for Sydney. Her electorate dominated the Oz Dildex in terms of both the overall value and volume of sales. The Honorable member for Sydney also took the prize for highest average spend per voter. Second was The Green’s Adam Bandt and Third was WA’s Melissa Price.

The complete Dildex ranking, listed in order of Party, Member, Electorate, Electoral Margin %, and Average Sales per voter #, is as follows:

1) Labor - Hon Tanya Plibersek - Sydney - 12.9% - $2.21

2) Greens - Hon Adam Bandt  - Melbourne - 5.3 % - $1.77

3) Liberal/LNP - Hon Melissa Price - Durack - 15.2% - $1.46

4) Labor Hon - Michael Danby - Melbourne - Ports - 3.6% - $1.35

5) Liberal/LNP Hon - Teresa Gambaro - Brisbane - 4.3% - $1.30

6) Labor - Hon Alannah MacTiernan - Perth - 2.2% - $1.20

7) Labor - Hon Gary Gray Brand - 3.7% - $1.13

8) Liberal/LNP - Hon Christian Porter - Pearce - 9.3% - $1.12

9) Liberal/LNP - Hon Trent Zimmerman - North Sydney - 15.7% - $1.10

10) Liberal/LNP - Hon Natasha Griggs - Solomon - 1.4% - $1.10

11) Liberal/LNP - Hon Steve Irons - Swan - 7.3% - $1.10

12) Labor Hon - Kate Ellis - Adelaide - 4.0% - $1.10

13) Labor Hon - Anthony Albanese - Grayndler - 18.8% - $1.06

14) Labor Hon - Terri Butler - Griffith - 3.0% - $1.03

15) Liberal/LNP - Hon Malcolm Turnbull - Wentworth - 18.9% - $1.02

16) Liberal/LNP - Hon Jane Prentice - Ryan - 8.5% - $1.00

17) Liberal/LNP - Hon Ken O'Dowd - Flynn - 6.5% - $0.99

18) Liberal/LNP - Hon Kelly O'Dwyer - Higgins - 9.9% - $0.94

19) Labor Hon - Matt Thistlethwaite - Kingsford Smith - 2.7% - $0.93

20) Labor Hon - Melissa Parke - Fremantle - 5.4% - $0.92

“Adult products are about fun and enjoyment and enhancing sexual health and lifestyles and I think the Prime Minister and Opposition leader have some interesting bed-time reading with these statistics,” said Rob Godwin Director of Lovehoney.com.au.

“The election campaign has dragged on for weeks and there’s a need to put some buzz into the election. With many of the top 20 sexiest electorates being marginal seats, the leaders could be very progressive and consider the sexual wellbeing of their voters! Happy, sexy voters = loyal voters!”

In terms of the rank order of overall sales value, the Prime Minister’s electorate, Wentworth, came in at a respectable 15th. In comparison, Bill Shorten’s electorate of Maribyrnong came in at a disappointing 131st. 

Lovehoney.com.au asked Fiona Patten, MP and Leader of the Australian Sex Party for her comments.

“On the basis of this remarkable survey, I’m predicting a hung parliament,” she said. “Tanya Plibersek and Albo both deserve their high ratings but Adam Bandt looks like he should join the Pink Bits Party rather than the Greens. And Christian Porter coming in at 8th place! And all the time he thought the buzz was coming from the churches in his electorate...”

Lovehoney’s top selling products in this nationwide survey were:

1) Happy Rabbit 2 G-Spot USB Rechargeable Rabbit Vibrator

2) Womanizer Rechargeable Clitoral Stimulator

3) Lovehoney Jessica Rabbit 10 Function Rabbit Vibrator

4) Lovehoney Magic Wand

5) Tracey Cox Supersex USB Rechargeable Rabbit Vibrator

6) Fifty Shades of Grey Greedy Girl G- Spot Rabbit Vibrator

7) Doxy Wand

8) We-Vibe 4 Plus Couples Vibrator

9) Tracey Cox Supersex Bullet Vibrator

10) Lovehoney Enjoy Water-Based Lube 100ml 

Maginn, who co-edited the 2015 book “(Sub)Urban Sexscapes” along with Christine Steinmetz, presented a paper titled “Orgasmic Geographies: The Socio-spatial Distribution and Cultural Significance of Sex Toys in Australia” at the Association of American Geographers conference in San Francisco earlier this year. He co-authored the piece with Alistair Sisson, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Sydney.

The paper was based on research they conducted on sales data from SexToys24/7, an online store, and Lovehoney, the U.K.’s largest sex toy retailer/distributor that also has a robust presence in Australia and the U.S.

Any U.S.-based adult retailers interested in having their sales data mapped should contact Maginn at paul.maginn@uwa.edu.au.

Frank Bukkwyd Tells 'What I Learned From Porn' This Weekend

LOS ANGELES—Most viewers of adult movies over the past 20 years are probably not familiar with the name "Steven Kates"—but if they've watched a fair amount of the output of such studios as Midnight Video, Vivid Video, Wicked Pictures, Simon Wolf Productions, Legend Video, Dreamland Entertainment and/or pretty much anything directed by Cash Markman, they've undoubtedly seen non-sex adult actor Frank Bukkwyd.

Well, guess what? They're one in the same—and Kates has taken his Bukkwyd character "on the road" to comedy clubs and the like across the country for the past several years, and this weekend, he'll be doing his show as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival.

ADVERTISEMENT


"Like you've never seen before!" Kates exclaims in his promotional flyer. "Unless you have seen it before! (In which case a lot of this will look familiar—only better!)"

The description on the Hollywood Fringe Festival website is a bit more illuminating:

"Since 1994, Frank Bukkwyd has been writing, acting and coaching in the field of Adult Entertainment, accruing 100s of credits to his made-up name. He’s just a guy who found himself invited into a curious situation that always arouses interest—so why not explain what the world of smut flix is like?"

Kates will be bringing his show, "What I Learned From Porn," to the Let Live Theater at the Actors Company, 916 N. Formosa Ave. in Hollywood (between Santa Monica Boulevard and Pink's Hot Dogs) at 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, June 24 and 25. Tickets are just $12, and may be purchased here.

Industry Veteran Kenny Brandon Passes Away

LOS ANGELES—Veteran adult industry videographer Kenny Brandon passed away Wednesday. He was 38. 

Brandon had been regular content shooter and photographer for more than 10 years working for various companies, including ATK and Combat Zone. The native of Chino Hills, Calif., is survived by two daughters, ages 6 and 5.

Brandon’s family has not released any details about his passing, but his sister Sommer told AVN, “He was loved by his family very much. He loved his girls very much. He was a great dad and brother and we will miss him greatly. We have lots of wonderful, fun memories. We love you Kenny. You’re in our hearts forever.”

Brandon made his directorial debut in 2006, shooting Virgins of the Screen for Combat Zone. He also had directed for his ex-wife’s Alicia Silver Productions, which produced content for companies such as Combat Zone, Homegrown Video and others. In addition, Brandon worked with Silver’s former agency Silver Star Models in the mid-2000s. His photography website was KennyOgraphy.com.

Several adult industry members are remembering Brandon in social media posts.

OC Modeling called Brandon a “loving father” on its Twitter feed.

“The ATMLA family sends prayers and condolences to Kenny's children who will be missing a very good father,” the ATMLA agency wrote on Twitter. 

“RIP @KennyBrandon you had a loving and fun soul and people will forever remember that,” performer Sophia Grace tweeted.   

Performer Scott Lyons called Brandon “an amazing guy” who he’d been friends with for his entire career.

Op-Ed: NY Post Scorns NYC For Providing Internet Access To All

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

But... but... but... they might watch PORN at these kiosks!!!

NY Post Scorns NYC For Providing Internet Access To All

NEW YORK CITY—If you're reading this article right now, chances are, you've got access to the internet. Of course, you may be reading it on a friend's computer, or at a library, but the point is, you got online—something that one hell of a lot of Americans (including New Yorkers) can't do with any regularity, if at all.

So, a few months ago, New York City contracted with the company LinkNYC to begin building Wi-Fi kiosks around the five boroughs, most often on sites previously occupied by the now-largely unused (or broken) pay phones. The tiny structures (see photo) are open to the public, any of whom can use, 24/7, the free Wi-Fi and the Android tablet built into each booth to make free phone calls to anywhere in the country (courtesy of Vonage US, an internet phone company), including specialized service numbers 311 (NYC complaint line), 411 (information) and 911 (emergency); charge their devices via USB ports; and access the internet. It even has Braille-embossed keys and a headphone jack. There are currently almost 200 kiosks in operation, and according to Techdirt.com, the city hopes to have 500 total in operation by July, and even more are planned for the future.

But until recently, there was one "problem" with letting just anybody online for free: Porn!

"The city spent years sweeping porn and peep shows from Times Square—and in just a matter of months, the de?Blasio administration brought back the sleaze, The Post has learned," began an article published in Sunday's (Rupert Murdoch-owned) New York Post. "The XXX-rated action returned to the Crossroads of the World via tablet-equipped street kiosks that horny hobos and even some curious school kids have used to get their kicks."

OMG! OMGOMGOMGOMG! Homeless people were watching pornography! And maybe even a few teens and tweens! And in public, no less! If that's not a job for the National Guard, we're sure The Post doesn't know what would be! Because as everyone knows, the poor and/or homeless don't deserve to get their sex organs (brain included) stimulated!

"I used to come here in the '70s, and I remember thinking Times Square was as skeezy as you could get, but I was wrong," The Post quoted former New Yorker and current Dallas resident Richard Herzberg, 61, as lamenting. "This is as skeezy as Times Square could get. I mean, in the old days there was plenty of porn, but you could only see it behind closed doors. So at least there was that level of modesty."

Hey, Dick: They have these new things now called "eyelids." How about you close yours if you come across something you don't want to see?

But actually, LinkNYC has taken care of Hertzberg's problem for him: They've now installed filters for "image searches" for the online content accessible in the kiosks, which for most people will mean bye-bye porn—unless they're tech-savvy enough to get around the filters, which we're guessing not a lot of homeless are (though we wouldn't put much past those schoolkids).

What this is, of course, is class warfare—something the guy who owns The Post and the Fox New Channel knows something about, since it's his bread and butter. Yes, the same Rupert Murdoch who in 2014 was the 91st richest person in the world; the same Rupert Murdoch who was implicated a couple of years ago in the British phone-hacking scandal; the same Rupert Murdoch who tends to marry women 30 years or more his junior—that's the guy whose editors are complaining that homeless people, whose lives really can't get much worse than they currently are, were being allowed access to pornography.

Good job, Rupert!

New Sensations Releases William H.'s 'Tits & Oil'

Posted Jun 22nd, 2016 11:10 AM

LOS ANGELES—New Sensations on Wednesday announced the release of Tits & Oil, a new breast worship showcase from gonzo director William H. and featuring performances by naturally busty performers Brooke Wylde, Keisha Grey, Karlee Grey, and cover-girl Cassidy Banks.

"Tits & Oil was done stylistically similar to the way I've done oil movies in the past—a formula that has been successful in keeping focus on the girl," William H. said. "I've always liked the look of an all-white background for that reason. The girl is the center of attention and the only thing that draws your eye—as it should be. Every girl has beautiful, natural breasts. Seeing them dripping wet with oil and water is like beautiful beading on a freshly waxed car."

ADVERTISEMENT


Tits & Oil presents four hardcore scenes of breast worship and gonzo sex, helmed in the award-winning style William H. pioneered more than a decade ago. Pairings include Brooke Wylde and 2016 AVN Male Performer of the Year Mick Blue, Keisha Grey and Xander Corvus, Karlee Grey and Ramon Nomar, and Cassidy Banks and Mr. Pete.

"I'm really happy with the performances in Tits & Oil," William H. said. "Brooke Wylde and Mick Blue had an obvious chemistry that you don't often see on camera. Karlee Grey and Ramon Nomar also had it. When performers are really into each other, it makes for the best scenes. Keisha Grey is one of those girls who has the whole package. She is eye-candy that is always a pleasure to watch—her scene with Xander Corvus is exceptional. Cassidy Banks and Mr. Pete had great energy and it was fun to watch her outstanding rack bounce up and down in an almost hypnotic fashion. Tits & Oil is a great movie for fans of beautiful, natural breasts dripping in oil. I hope people enjoy it as much as I did making it."

Tits & Oil has a runtime of 110 minutes and includes exclusive photo gallery, candid Behind-the-Scenes featurette, and two bonus scenes.

To view the trailer for "Tits & Oil," click here.

William H. joined New Sensations in February, bringing with him 17 years of celebrated gonzo movie-making. He won back-to-back Director of the Year - Non-Feature wins at the 2010 and 2011 AVN Awards and had a four-year reign as Director of the Year - Non-Feature from 2010-13 at the XRCO Awards.

Playgirl.com Taps Lance Hart To Serve As Official Spokesmodel

Posted Jun 22nd, 2016 09:58 AM

TAMPA, Fla.—Lance Hart—an award-winning adult performer, director and producer—has been named official spokesmodel for Playgirl.com.

As spokesmodel, Hart will be able to model and create scenes not only for Playgirl.com, but also for Playgirlfilms.com, which will be part of his PervOUT.com network.

"I’m thrilled to be the face of a Playgirl,” Hart said. “It’s a cherished institution that I’ve always respected and wanted to be a part of.  Also I’ve been looking for a channel to express myself with some sexy bi-sexual film and this is a perfect place.  My fans are excited.  They seem to match the Playgirl demographic perfectly.  I’m going to work my ass off on this.”

Lance is known for his ability to create sexy content with big porn stars across the country, and his unique position as a relevant and well respected crossover (performing in both "straight" and "gay" scenes) star will undoubtedly propel the Playgirl name to new levels. Lance will produce and star in steamy bi-sexual scenes for Playgirl, and his first scene featuring Christian Wilde, Lilith Luxe, and himself is set to film in late June.

“We are happy to announce Lance Hart as our new official spokesman! Lance's passion for his fans & his enthusiasm in the industry—not to mention his brawny physique & perfectly good looks—made him an indisputable match to be the face of Playgirl.com,” the company said in a release. “Lance’s audience is a mix of straight women and gay men, just like our member database, and we are happy to remain all-inclusive for all those who enjoy the male body."

The winner of more than 15 Fetish Film Awards as an actor and director, Lance prides himself on creating content without breaking the bank.  Most of his award winning films were creating by collaborating and trading content with his pornstar friends, keeping shoot budgets realistic for Pornstars that want to be producers. On his own PervOUT.com network, which boasts almost daily updates, most scenes are filmed on a $40 budget and yield a $2,000 return (per clip). 

To keep up to date on Lance and his endeavors, follow him on Twitter and Instagram at @lancehartfetish and visit his blog at LanceHartFetish.com.

LeWood Corrupts the Innocent in 'Anal Heartbreakers'

VAN NUYS, Calif.—Four fresh bubble-rumped starlets subject themselves to the trademark backdoor debauchery doled out by married performing/directing duo Francesca Lé and Mark Wood in LeWood Productions' upcoming release Anal Heartbreakers, out July 5 from Evil Angel by way of DVD and VOD.

Featuring the anal debut of blonde Rain Summers—captured just weeks after her 19th birthday—Anal Heartbreakers also stars Angel Smalls, Dallas Black and much buzzed about up-and-comer Gia Paige, all flaunting their assets in colorful bikinis and girly accessories.

"These girls just fit the title," Wood said. "They had faces that would launch ships. [They're] innocent and spunky girls, but willing to take that leap of faith."

"Fans know LeWood is especially adept at breaking in anal sex rookies," Evil Angel domestic sales manager Justin Rich commented. "As porn vets and married, real-life swingers, Mark and Francesca know how to win the trust of new girls."

While Lé called Paige "adorable and yummy," she was particularly pleased with Summers' anal deflowering, saying, "I was very happy to see her take it so easily." She was also delighted with the performance of the aptly named Smalls, remarking, "She's so tiny, I love watching big dicks slamming her tiny asshole."

See the trailer for Anal Heartbreakers at EvilAngelVideo.com.

Grooby Ramps Up Release Schedule

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

Grooby Ramps Up Release Schedule

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—For the first time in its history, trans studio Grooby has moved to a multiple-title monthly release slate.

"For the past 15 years, Grooby has released one title a month," explained Grooby sales manager David Peskin, who just returned from a 30-day hiatus. "They ramped it up to two releases in May, one of which was Real Fucking Girls directed by Mona Wales, [whose] highly successful premiere in theater in North Hollywood [had] over 250 people in attendance. And the numbers, the reorders, are just phenomenal. Truly a groundbreaking release.

ADVERTISEMENT


"The second release in May was Ladyboy Cumshots!" Peskin continued, "and this is 63 scenes from the Grooby network just of transsexual cumshots never before seen on DVD. Selling extremely well."

This month, Peskin said, the schedule has increased once more to three releases, namely UK TGirls & Friends, Miran: Newhalf Superstar and TGirls Porn 2.

The first of these, which hit the street Monday, represents the DVD debut of content from recently launched Grooby network site UK-TGirls.com. Directed by Kalin, it stars Jazmin, Alicia Snow, Lexus Bradbury, Red Vex, Alexandra Vexx and Mindy—the latter two in a trans lesbian scene, Peskin said, "that I believe could get a nomination for Best Transsexual Scene."

Peskin further touted, "These are hot and horny all-European T-girls."

The second June release, shipping this week and streeting June 27, continues Grooby's fledling Superstar series, which started in December 2015 with Aubrey Kate: TS Superstar. That inaugural volume, according to Peskin, "has been one of our best-selling titles to date. It's been reordering like a machine since its release. Then we released Honey Foxx: TS Superstar in February, and now this is the third release in the series.

"For those that have never heard of Miran," he explained, "she's the star of one of our best-selling Shemale Japan titles, which is Shemale Japan 4, where she exploded into stardom. In Japan, apparently, transsexuals are referred to as 'newhalfs.' They are underground and Grooby happens to be the only company with access to shoot newhalfs in Japan. Miran actually came out for the TEA Show in Hollywood, she flew in from Japan for the second consecutive year, to the delight of all of her fans."  

And as Miran: Newhalf Superstar hits retailers June 27, Grooby will begin shipping TGirls Porn 2, which CEO Steven Grooby describes as a "T-girl feast for the senses." Following the all transsexual-on-transsexual formula of the first volume, which Peskin reported has done "phenomenal numbers," TGirls Porn 2 offers a quintuplet of pairings: Chanel Santini and Coco Dahlia; Vixxen Goddess and Baby Bratt; Eva Cassini and Crystal Sopen; Chelsea Marie and Morena Black; and Jamie French and Kira Krash.

French, Peskin noted, directed Trans6uals for Grooby and is currently working on her follow-up release.

TGirls Porn 2 is set to street July 5.

Former Hustler Editorial Director Bruce David Passes

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

Former Hustler Editorial Director Bruce David Passes

LOS ANGELES—Bruce David, an employee of LFP, Inc. for nearly 40 years, died last Thursday at the age of 75, reportedly from septic shock following a long illness. When he retired approximately three years ago, his titles were editor-in-chief and editorial director for the company's major publications including Hustler magazine, having succeeded Alan MacDonell at the post in 2003, and was himself succeeded by Ann Denbok, another longtime LFP employee who had been editing some of the company's smaller magazines.

ADVERTISEMENT


"My father was certainly the greatest man I've ever known and I will miss him dearly," wrote son Taylor David on the Facebook page devoted to Bruce. "Although I am beyond devastated by this loss, I find comfort in the fact that he lived a rich and fruitful life. He was a brilliant artist, writer, publisher, and journalist—a man of many talents. He made his mark on the world as editor-in-chief of Hustler Magazine, publishing consequential investigative pieces and political commentary that championed the working class and First Amendment, pushing the boundaries far beyond the scope of your typical sex magazine. As a screenwriter, he made people laugh, adding his wit to shows like Family Ties and Alf, among others. His achievements in life were abundant and I am terribly saddened he has gone."

"My heart is broken, as we have lost a Hustler family member, Bruce David," wrote Theresa Flynt on her Facebook page. "Bruce’s contribution to Hustler over the past 40 years added to the DNA of the magazine. He was the essence of what Hustler stands for, he was the catalyst in the obscure subjects that contributed to our editorial edge, always thinking of the strange, outside of the box thoughts, sexual, worldly, environmental, sci-fi and political concerns with no fear. Many people feared him as he was crass, direct with crazy ways, yet at the same time, he was respected, admired and loved."

Little is known of David's pre-porn career. He served in the U.S. Army after World War II, and was stationed in Germany during the Cold War, and got to travel to many countries—and later described himself to others as a young man who was "ridiculously handsome and irresistible to women."

David's first contact with the adult entertainment industry came as Al Goldstein's executive editor at Screw magazine in New York City in the early 1970s, and as sometime-co-host of Goldstein's Manhattan Cable late-night sex talk show, Midnight Blue.

But all that changed when David wrote a critique of Flynt's then-new magazine, Hustler.

"Bruce was working for Screw and wrote a review of the very first issue of Hustler back in 1974," Flynt recalled. "He said, 'The new men's upstart, Hustler, has just nudged out Refrigerator Monthly as the most boring publication in America.' So I called him up. I told him, 'I love your review! And I agree with you, by the way. Why don’t you come to Columbus and help us out?'"

"He worked for Larry Flynt Publications for nearly four decades," added Denbok. "He was stubborn, arrogant … very creative. He was Bruce."

As editorial director, David oversaw all of the LFP publications, including Hustler, Hustler XXX, Chic, Taboo, Taboo Illustrated, Barely Legal and others. He wrote editorials for several of the magazines, as well as the "Asshole of the Month" column, though Flynt himself chose the featured asshole. It was one of those columns, featuring "Moral Majority" leader Rev. Jerry Falwell, that led to a lawsuit in which Falwell claimed that he had been defamed, even though the column was clearly labeled as satire. The case went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which found that the content was constitutionally protected—a major victory for adult entertainment, which still produces parodies of famous mainstream movies, TV shows and books.

"I'm sorry to hear that he's gone," reflected Ernest Greene, whose work on the Taboo magazines and some "all-sex" LFP publications was overseen by David. "I really liked him. He was a big tall guy with a big loud booming voice and he could be intimidating—and God knows, I think a lot of people quavered at the thought when he'd yell for them to come into his office, but actually, I think the times I spent in his office were some of the happiest times I had there.

"I'm gonna miss the guy," Greene continued. "I missed him when he left the company. He took such a huge chunk of the institutional history with him, too. What Bruce knew, the extraordinary experiences that he had and the things that he'd seen in his life—I was after him forever to write a book and he was always, 'Aw, it's a lot of work; maybe ...'  I would say he's not the most modest person in the world, but even looking at him as an older man, he had the energy of a guy half his age a lot of the time. He had a very high-powered personality. He was definitely a part of a circle of offbeat intellectuals in the '70s who were there."

David was reportedly a bit of a technophobe, disliking email and preferring to edit copy in printed form rather than on a computer screen.

"He was really good at the editorial part of being an editor," Greene stated. "He could read things very well. He never gave up on doing that; he looked at everything that went into the magazines. Manys the times I saw him going through copy line by line—and I will tell you absolutely, he never touched a piece of copy of mine that didn't get better. He really had the knack for it.

"One thing he could not tolerate was anything he thought was stupid," Greene added. "He could tolerate a lot of things, but if you said something dumb in his presence, or something he perceived to be dumb, look out!  He had an epic, legendary temper but once he vented that, it was over and then he could go right back to being a very cheerful and very entertaining and very funny raconteur. But a lot of people would just stay away from his office because they were afraid of his wrath, but I also knew that was partially—I think he thought dramatic delivery was part of his job, so after a while, I stopped taking that personally."

One person who felt some of David's intensity was Lonn Michael Friend, who posted on Facebook, "On April 19, 1982, thanks to the help of fellow Bruin Nancy Gottesman, I got the opportunity to sing and dance my way through a series of interviews at LFP, Inc for an entry level associate editor's position. Managing editor Kelly Garrett picked my brain; executive editor, Don Evans, gave me his laid back lay of the sophisticate land but their boss, the man in charge, Larry's Mr. Spock, editorial director, Bruce David, took a stainless steel shovel to my cranium. He was so fast, curt and smart, he scared the living shit of me but somehow, someway, I survived the vetting and got the job. First few months on staff was baptism by sophisticate fire. My copy was rejected more often than Senate gun control legislation. Bruce didn't just request rewrites on my pieces, he'd trek (with heavy footstep) from his executive suite adjacent to Althea's red velvet lair down the long Century City tower hallway, kick open my door and hurl the manuscript at my head like a Frisbee. The punk met the godfather and my learning curve got downright quadrophonic."

Friend and David shared a love of science-fiction, and David gave Friend some of Theodore Sturgeon's sexy sci-fi books to review for the magazine.

"We talked about UFOs, Joseph Campbell and our kids," Friend recalled. "I was convinced that—like a Supreme Court justice—Bruce would die at his post. He loved his job and the courageous, cantankerous icon that employed him for so long. Gratitude and safe crossing, Mr. David."

Politically speaking, David had libertarian leanings, which very much allied with Flynt's early politics, and David began to push Hustler in a more political direction early on in his career.

"His politics were a funny mix of things, but generally speaking, he was suspicious of government—but he was suspicious of the people who were suspicious of government," Greene related. "It could be fairly said of Bruce that his general attitude was one of extreme skepticism toward anything that came through the door, which is a good attitude for an editor, in my opinion. He was not impossible to convince. He had an open mind, and some of the many things we discussed—politics, culture—there was very little he didn't know. He was in many ways a product of the earlier generation of this business. He had the history in his head."

It was David who brought on board such politically savvy columnists as Nat Hentoff (formerly of the Village Voice), Robert Scheer (former editor of the radical left-wing journal Ramparts) and political commentator Brad Friedman, who writes the political/environmental BradBlog.

"I think as the years went by, Bruce's interest shifted more toward politics, which was in a way in accord with the way the magazine tilted too," Greene speculated. "I think there was a feeling it was going to be more about that, and while he didn't necessarily endorse every conspiracy theory that was out there, Bruce was willing to entertain some pretty far-out ideas on the basis that what we knew of reality gave us reason to think that perhaps there was something to them. But mainly, I think he really wanted to position Hustler as a general-interest magazine with some sexy content, and he worked hard at doing that.

"He was one of the more important figures in recent years in adult publishing, in that he really saw it as a platform for looking at bigger issues, and he brought that consciousness to it, and again, we didn't necessarily agree on every point of that," Greene added. "What we did agree on was that it was an important subject and that it deserved to be treated importantly. He was firm in his thinking until persuaded otherwise, which he could be, and really was, as he said, not afraid of much of anyone or anything. He was a fearless person. He wasn't afraid to say anything or take anyone on; he was a scrapper.

"Once again, our community loses part of its memory and part of the strange mix of interesting Bohemian-type people that were drawn to the industry in the early days. This is a link with our history that's now severed—another one."

Cleveland Fans Shun Porn in Favor of King James

Cleveland Fans Shun Porn in Favor of King James

LOS ANGELES—There are plenty of interesting stats to satisfy even the biggest number nerd when it comes to Game 7 of the NBA finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers, but perhaps none of them interest fans of adult material as much as reports from PornHub.

Nielsen numbers show nearly 30.8 million people tuned in Sunday, June 19, to the historic game (it marked the first time in NBA history a team down 3-1 in the best-of-seven series came back to take it all), giving it a 15.7 rating nationwide. In the Cleveland metro area, the game earned a 46.3 rating.

And with all those eyeballs watching LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving on the boob tube, it translated into a major drop in the number of eyeballs actually watching boobs.

Megasite PornHub, at the request of The Daily Dot, looked at its own traffic numbers during the game, which marked King James and his crew earning the first championship for BelieveLand since Jim Brown and the 1964 Cleveland Browns.

“Compared to a normal Sunday, PornHub’s traffic during the game was down -10 percent across the United Sttes, including the San Francisco Bay area,” PornHub posted on the Insights section of its site. “Cleveland’s traffic was down -20 percent for the first half of the game, but then plummeted by -47 percent towards the end.

“Why such a drastic drop? Fap time clearly gave way to clap time as people all over Cleveland tuned in to see the Cavaliers snag the first pro sports championship title the city has had in 52 years,” the post continued. ”Congrats Cleveland!”

Despite the major drop in viewers during the game, PornHub noted fans apparently decided to use porn to celebrate the historic win: The site’s traffic in Cleveland was up 20 percent above normal by midnight Sunday.

California Democratic Party Votes to Oppose Adult Film Initiative

California Democratic Party Votes to Oppose Adult Film Initiative

Posted Jun 20th, 2016 10:55 AM

LONG BEACH, Calif.—The California Democratic Party voted on Sunday to oppose the pending Safer Sex in Adult Film Act, a controversial ballot initiative that would allow private citizens to sue adult performers and other industry workers when a condom is not visible in an adult film.

Eric Paul Leue, campaign manager for Californians Against Worker Harassment, a committee opposing the initiative, said this was a historic win for the adult industry: both major political parties in the state now oppose the initiative.

ADVERTISEMENT


“This is a tremendous, unprecedented victory. We applaud the California Democratic Party for recognizing the many problems with this dangerous initiative. No worker in any other industry can be sued and harassed by members of the general public, and this initiative would open adult performers to stalking, extortion and profiteering.”

Performers have spoken out repeatedly against the measure expressing concerns for their safety and privacy. Many attended the convention to make their case to the party leaders directly.

“This initiative puts adult film performers at risk,” said Chanel Preston, President of the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee (APAC). “The Democratic Party recognizing this is a major turning point in the battle. This win could not have happened without the help of the many performers who have been consistently impressive in their participation and support. As we move forward in our efforts to fight the adult film initiative, I believe we will continue to impress others with our passion and dedication in keeping our industry free from regulations that threaten, rather than protect performers.”

Ela Darling, a Board Member of APAC, who spoke to the resolutions committee, echoed Preston’s sentiment.

“This is a huge success and it wouldn’t have happened without the support and hard work of performers who came out and spoke up for their right to privacy. I’m so honored to have stood beside such a passionate, industrious group of people this weekend. We spoke out against violations of our safety and privacy and our voices were heard.”

“We could not have done this without the voices of the performers, and the continuous support of our industry workers and businesses,” said Leue. “Our unity is our success.”

The California Republican Party opposed the measure in February. Major LGBTQ groups and AIDS/HIV outreach organizations have also announced opposition, including the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and AIDS Project LA.

“This is not about condoms,” said Leue. “It’s a lawsuit bonanza that will be used to harass this work force. Harassment is not a California value.”

Adult Empire Adds Virtual Reality Porn To Its List of Offerings

Posted Jun 20th, 2016 09:11 AM

PITTSBURGH, PA—Award-winning online adult retailer and entertainment seller Adult Empire (AE) announces the addition of new Virtual Reality (VR) content to its selection of XXX movies for sale at AdultEmpire.com.

AE’s VR porn will be compatible with head-mounted displays Google Cardboard, Gear VR, Oculus and Vive, with links and tutorials about each headset and its viewing capabilities, available at AE's website.

ADVERTISEMENT


"The future of adult entertainment is finally here, and we at AE are so proud to be at the forefront, offering our audience the very latest in cutting-edge technology," said Adult Empire’s Director of Marketing Megan Wozniak. "Displaying AE-compatible headsets on our site with tutorials will greatly help VR newbies, which, at this point, most of us still are."

Wozniak also noted that as VR porn becomes more technologically advanced, customers will be willing to pay to enjoy the talents of adult performers in a virtual world rather than find free content online.

"VR porn goes beyond merely watching a scene on-screen to virtually existing within the scene, and this incredible experience can't be downloaded from a tube site," said Wozniak.

Porn Stars Invited Free To World's First Documentary On Self-Love

Posted Jun 20th, 2016 08:21 AM

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.Sticky: A (Self) Love Story is a film that asks “why is masturbation such a sticky subject?” Stylish, insightful, fun, and educational, it features interviews with over 60 celebrities, sexologists, educators, authors, law makers, religious figures and entertainers covering the topic from a range of perspectives, including Hustler Magazine founder Larry Flynt, Black Flag’s Keith Morris, actress Janeane Garofalo, adult film star Nina Hartley, and former Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders, who was forced by Bill Clinton to resign after she suggested at an AIDS conference that we teach masturbation in school, as a healthy alternative to intercourse.

From the history of the vibrator, to the shocking reality that harmless sex toys are banned in Alabama, Sticky: A (Self) Love Story will teach viewers everything they didn’t know about masturbation in one stimulating documentary. It’s a candid portrayal of an activity that is rarely discussed, exploring it from a historical, medical, legal, moral and psychological perspective. Writer/Director Nicholas Tana aims to crush social embarrassment in his quest to understand why masturbation is something that most people do, but few like to admit.

Fun facts:

• Sticky interviewee Sherri Williams has been campaigning for almost 20 years against the 1998 ban on sex toys in Alabama, one of the most lenient states when it comes to the purchase of guns.

• Kellogg’s Corn Flakes & Graham Crackers were invented to curb masturbation in boys. Sticky will tell viewers why.

• The vibrator was invented to help doctors genitally stimulate their female patients in order to treat "hysteria." Sticky will take viewers through the history of the vibrator.

• Sticky interviewee, former Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders, was forced by then president Bill Clinton to resign in 1994, because she condoned the idea of teaching schoolchildren to masturbate as a way of avoiding the spread of the AIDS virus.

Kudos for Sticky: A (Self) Love Story:

“…offers a cultural history of masturbatory shame – and explains why Pee-wee Herman is an American Hero.”—New York Magazine 

“…an ambitious film that’s sure to spark giggles and flushed cheeks wherever it’s screened…” —Salon.com 

“...takes the revolutionary stance that touching yourself is not a cause for moral repulsion…”—Newsweek 

"…why is masturbation so hard to talk about? For a subject that is, as Tana observes, 'so hard to talk about,' it is never a dull one."—The Daily Beast

The screening will take place at the TLC Chinese Theater in Hollywood on June 30 at 9 p.m. Special guests for the event will include Nicholas Tana (Writer/Producer/Director), Denise Acosta (Co-Producer), Nina Hartley, Chris Gore, comedian ANT, and Joe Matt—and there'll be plenty of free sex toys everywhere!

Admission to the screen is $15, but it's free to those on the VIP List of Girls & Corpses editor/founder Corpsy Rhine. Porn stars are requested to respond here with the porn stars' name(s) and Rhine will add them to the VIP list.

Vivid, Totalmedia Solutions Ink Pact To Expand TV Distribution

Posted Jun 20th, 2016 07:57 AM

LOS ANGELES—Leading adult entertainment company Vivid Entertainment has inked a deal with Totalmedia Solutions S.A. to expand Vivid TV across Europe and Africa.

“Totalmedia is highly regarded as the most successful marketing agent of adult entertainment content in Europe. I had personal experience in working with the firm when it handled Sapphire Media International.  I am very pleased to have them on board with Vivid starting August 1st,” said Michael H. Klein, president of broadcasting and internet for Vivid.

VividTV, which enjoys nearly 100 percent distribution to North American cable and satellite homes, launched the VividTV Europe 24/7 adult channel in 2014. Designed specifically for the European viewer, it combines popular local content with Vivid’s best-selling programming. The company’s robust VOD service, also offered throughout Europe, is customized to the needs of each affiliate.

VividTV is a key component of the Vivid Entertainment brand. VividTV is a leader in adult television distribution, reaching more than 40 countries with its television networks and VOD packages. Vivid, which has the one of the largest archives of award-winning films of any company in the sector, is also famous for its celebrity sex movies featuring such personalities as Kim Kardashian, Kendra Wilkinson, Pamela Anderson, Farrah Abraham and others.

“In addition to our explicit network, VividTV Europe, we have created a new soft erotic channel under the Vivid Touch brand, with the launch scheduled for this summer,” Klein said.  “We are also readying a second explicit channel for introduction in the fall of this year. Totalmedia will be offering all three networks to operators immediately when they come on board.”

CatalystCon Founder Hosting Pleasure Products Symposium

CatalystCon Founder Hosting Pleasure Products Symposium

LOS ANGELES—Dee Dennis, founder of the CatalystCon sexual health and wellness conference, announced the creation of a Pleasure Products Symposium, which will take place the day before the traditional conference.

“When I started CatalystCon five years ago, I always knew I wanted to o something on a day just for members of the industry and sex educators and therapists,” Dennis said. “I got the idea from the first time I attended AVN [Adult Entertainment Expo and Novelty Expo]. I thought it as great seeing manufacturers and educators networking, mingling and making relationships. I thought it would be great for them to sit down and have a conversation together.”

ADVERTISEMENT


Dennis said the communication and willingness to work together among key groups in the pleasure products industry is much better than it was even just a few years ago, but said she believes this event will make it even easier to make contact and work together.

The inaugural Pleasure Products Symposium is slated for 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 pm. Thursday, Sept. 15, at the Westin Los Angeles Airport, Los Angeles. CatalystCon takes place Sept. 16-18 in the same hotel.

“The concept is similar to the mission of Catalyst Con: To create conversations and relationships with those in the industry who all have the same mission of sexual pleasure and health but are not normally all in the same room talking,” Dennis said. “This will be different in that we won't have panels, but instead have conversations.”

The Pleasure Products Symposium will feature three blocks: Retailers, Manufacturers, and Sex Educators, Therapists and Counselors. In each of the blocks, recognized leaders in each sector will facilitate the conversations, Dennis said.

The event is free to professionals and members of each of the targeted sectors, but registration is required. To register, visit CatalystCon.com/PleasureSymposium.

CatalystCon is a three-day conference that brings together speakers and attendees to address topics such as feminist porn, sex education, body image and sexuality, sex work, and political organizing in the sex positive community. For more information, visit CalatystCon.com.

FSC Joins Cert Brief In Dave Pounder Discrimination Case

FSC Joins Cert Brief In Dave Pounder Discrimination Case

LOS ANGELES—Today, the Board of the Free Speech Coalition voted to join the amicus brief filed by the First Amendment Lawyers Association (FALA) and the Woodhull Freedom Foundation, in support of Dave Mech, who formerly acted in adult as "Dave Pounder," in his effort to have the U.S. Supreme Court decide whether he had been illegally discriminated against in his attempt to hang banners on Palm Beach County, Florida, schoolyard fences advertising his business, the "Happy/Fun Math Tutor." Mech has several degrees in both math and teaching.

ADVERTISEMENT


As AVN previously reported, Mech's claim was denied last month by the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, which ruled that what appears on schoolyard fences is "government speech," despite the fact that advertisers actually pay (or donate cash) to have their banners displayed on the fences.

"When the government exercises 'the right to "speak for itself,"' it can freely 'select the views that it wants to express,'" wrote the Eleventh Circuit panel which included ultra-conservative William Pryor. One of the "views" that the school board selected to "express" to middle school kids was for a local tavern, Miller's Ale House.

The FALA brief, authored by First Amendment attorneys Jeffrey J. Douglas and Gary S. Edinger, of which AVN received as a "draft version," poses the question to the Supreme Court, "Whether the Eleventh Circuit improperly expanded the 'government speech' exception to the First Amendment to include circumstances where the government was not itself a 'speaker' but had clearly discriminated against private speech on the basis of content."

The brief goes on to explain, "The 'government speech' doctrine at issue in this case represents a rare instance where the courts afford no First Amendment protection whatsoever despite the fact that free speech and communication are clearly involved. The limits of the government speech doctrine have not been well-developed by this Court and the lower courts continue to wrestle with the issue. The opportunity for misapplication of the government speech doctrine and the censorship of valuable communications are of concern to the FALA."

The brief argues, "The 'government speech' doctrine represents a dangerous exception to the First Amendment because it has the potential to cripple speech whenever citizens interact with government. In our complex society, government is everywhere: as landowner, the source of funding and contract rights, and as the indispensable partner in a variety of public-private joint ventures. In such a world, the protections of the First Amendment are more important than ever as a bulwark against government censorship."

The amici urge the high court to "narrowly define" the "government speech" doctrine such that it will not be used simply to squelch speech the government doesn't like—though in Mech's case, it wasn't actually anything about his advertisement that raised concerns; it was the fact that one parent discovered that "Dave Pounder Productions" used the same mailing address as Happy/Fun Math Tutor—and using the now-well-established (if unwritten) doctrine of "porn cooties," anything that's in the vicinity of, or in any way connected to, an adult performer or production company is seen as having been contaminated by that proximity. However, no one has claimed that children being tutored by Mech saw any adult material, or even knew of his connection to adult.

But in Supreme Court jurisprudence, very few forms of speech have been deemed exempt from First Amendment protection. These include, according to the brief, "obscenity, state secrets in time of war, and possibly 'fighting words'," with the brief noting, "The doctrine of 'government speech' is a relatively new addition to this list," and adds that, "It is also the category which poses the greatest risk of outright censorship of speech which most observers would otherwise conclude is otherwise firmly within the ambit of the First Amendment."

The brief questions why the dispute between Mech and the school board couldn't be resolved by simply looking at the board's policies regarding who can advertise on its fences, noting, "It also seems inappropriate to allow First Amendment protections to hinge on whether a citizen might be confused as to the identity of the speaker or might believe that government endorses a particular speaker when such is not the case." (The school board had indeed argued that allowing Mech's signage was tantamount to endorsing adult entertainment.)

"There was nothing obviously offensive about the Petitioner’s advertisements," the brief notes. "Neither were they much different in terms of content or appearance than the other advertisements which the School Board had approved over the years. The School Board had not adopted a policy that math tutors were bad—or even, for that matter, an express policy discouraging  pornographic films. ... In past years, this case would have been treated as a quintessential First Amendment claim. The Court would have first determined whether the School District had created a limited public forum for advertising on its fences. Had the facts supported that conclusion, the Court would then have considered whether the School Board had engaged in content-based discrimination. ..."

The brief then proceeds to dissect the Eleventh Circuit's opinion, suggesting that it improperly modified one aspect of the "three factors" test of government speech found in previous court cases to support the school board's position.

"The problem with the current status of the government speech doctrine is that one cannot tell whether the Eleventh Circuit was right or wrong in concluding that 'two out of three ain’t bad,'" quoting from the Meatloaf song of the same name. (And yes, Meatloaf and songwriter Jim Steinman are given credit in the brief.)

"Traditional First Amendment analysis must apply in all cases except those narrow instances where the government is actively communicating a particular message for a legitimate public purpose," the brief concludes. "The Court should use this case as an opportunity to narrow the government speech doctrine and reassert the primacy of the First Amendment."

Dancer Files Class Action Suit Against Hustler Club

Dancer Files Class Action Suit Against Hustler Club

SAN FRANCISCO—One of the longest running battles in the adult cabaret industry is whether dancers at clubs are employees or independent contractors, and a canon of law has developed which sets forth some criteria by which a dancer's status at a club may be determined.

The latest entry in that battle is one Nicole Hughes, reportedly a dancer at the Hustler Club located at 1031 Kearny St., San Francisco. On Thursday, June 16, Hughes filed a class action lawsuit against S.A.W. Entertainment Ltd., which does business as Larry Flynt's Hustler Club, charging that she and other dancers similarly positioned were classified as independent contractors when they should have been considered employees of the club—and paid the state's minimum wage for all hours worked. Hughes stated that S.A.W. also failed to provide them with itemized wage statements.

Hughes also charged that while she was employed at the club between July 2014 and September 2015, she and the other dancers in fact received no wages, but were expected to be paid through tips from patrons and other gratuities—and that they were required to pay "house fees" of between $40 and $60 per shift, and were fined if they missed scheduled shifts.

AVN attempted to reach out to S.A.W. Entertainment for comment, but no one was available to do so at press time.

Cal/OSHA to Form Advisory Committee on Adult Biz Regulations

Cal/OSHA to Form Advisory Committee on Adult Biz Regulations

Posted Jun 17th, 2016 12:49 PM

LOS ANGELES—Cal/OSHA, the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, has taken a step that will be of considerable interest to members of the adult industry. The governmental body has announced that it will create a new advisory committee to shape new regulations for the adult industry. The Free Speech Coalition notes that the announcement of such an advisory committee, which would ostensibly include working adult performers, is a significant shift away from the historically adversarial approach taken by Cal/OSHA Division toward the adult industry.

ADVERTISEMENT


At this month’s meeting of the Standards Board, a Cal/OSHA Division representative said that it had already reviewed a petition for regulation from the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, and expected to complete its review of a separate petition submitted by the Free Speech Coalition by early July.  Once both reviews are complete, the Division stated it would begin to assemble the advisory committee.

“We can hope to see announcements for an advisory committee later this summer, and we are hopeful that this represents a new era wherein performers and those working on adult film sets are recognized as true stakeholders,” said Karen Tynan, an attorney for the adult industry specializing in employment and workplace safety. “Effective regulation can only come when performers and other industry workers have a voice in the development of the regulations that affect them.”

In February, the Cal/OSHA Standards Board declined to adopt highly restrictive regulations drafted by the Cal/OSHA Division, which would have required not only condoms, but dental dams and goggles for all adult performers while abandoning the present health protocols and strict testing regimen. At a hearing for the regulations, performers testified for nearly six hours, with many performers protesting that they had been denied a voice in regulations that affect them. At the conclusion of the hearing, the Cal/OSHA Standards Board reprimanded the Division for failing to work with adult performers when drafting regulations.

The formation of the advisory committee is expected to begin after Cal/OSHA finishes its review of the Free Speech Coalition petition on July 9, 2016.

Virtual Touch: A Short History of VR-Ready Interactive Toys

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

A Short History of VR-Ready Interactive Toys

This article originally appeared in the June 2016 issue of AVN magazine. Click here to see a digital edition of the magazine.

For as long as people have dreamed of flying cars, so have they dreamed of sex robots. But unlike modes of transportation a la The Jetsons, pleasure products manufacturers have embraced available technology to bring us closer to Woody Allen’s Orgasmatron.

These days, manufacturers are looking for ways to pair their wares with virtual reality technology. One of the first leaps into sex in a virtual word came with Second Life. The online virtual world launched in 2003 and soon after Residents learned they could build stores and use currency to interact, they took it a step further by interacting physically. From there, the idea of virtual sex took another big leap with the introduction of the RealTouch from AEBN.

ADVERTISEMENT


The RealTouch was a male masturbation device that utilized haptic technology to allow the device to sync up with specially coded adult videos and simulate the experience a man viewed on the screen. While in use, the RealTouch would mimic the feel, heat and moisture levels show in the movie.

Since then, as VR porn is starting to find its footing, fans of virtual reality and sex toys have tried to create the Next Big Thing to take the world by storm.

Topco Sales last summer announced its partnership with PornHub to create the TwerkingButt, which provides an interactive cyber experience with multiple twerking patterns, customizable rhythms, massage speeds, sensual vibrations, Bluetooth technology and simulated body heat, all within Topco’s patented Cyberskin material.

“It took us over two years to bring TwerkingButt from concept to reality. Our development team worked tirelessly to combine the latest wireless, app and optical technologies as well as our patented Cyberskin, which simulates the sensual feel of true skin-to-skin contact,” said Michael Siegel, then COO of Topco Sales, when the product debuted in July 2015. “With the included virtual reality goggles and downloadable 3D content, it becomes a truly immersive experience.”

To date, most of the products and ideas about combining sex toys with haptic and/or virtual reality technology have centered around masturbation devices for men. In addition to the RealTouch and TwerkingButt, Fleshlight debuted the VStroker. The individually personalized fully interactive sex toy for men, the VStroker is an attachment pairs with a Fleshlight product and studies users’ penetration and motion and transmits the information to a designated computer via wireless USB connection. While viewing live-action cinema on a Mac or PC, users are in total control of every thrust and can virtually bring the look, feel and motion of a favorite adult performer into the privacy of their own homes.

In its partnership with European company Kiiroo last year, Fleshlight went even further in the interactive universe. Fleshlight provides the Real Feel Super Skin materials for use in the sleeves of Kiiroo’s Onyx masturbator, which can be linked up to the Kiiroo Pearl device. The Pearl looks like a traditional vibrator, but is loaded inside with sensors that translate friction, intensity and other bits of data remotely to the Onyx masturbator. The Pearl can also function as a solo vibrator. The toys can be used with an app that produces shared sensations.

Most recently Kiiroo has teamed up with Datoro Media to launch a new interactive site, FeelPornStars.com, where fans can interact with adult performers virtually by viewing videos that produce sensations in the Onyx masturbator. The site launched with content featuring Tanya Tate, Lisa Ann, Bobbi Eden and Jasmine Jae, and by mid-May the following stars had been added: Asa Akira, Nikki Benz, Jessica Drake, Sasha Grey, Jenna Haze, Audrey Hollander, Katsuni, Misty Stone and Alexis Texas.

“I am excited that my fans can really feel me now when they purchase their own Tanya Tate Experience. Not only will they get to feel my pussy around them, but they can also interact with me by watching my videos. This is the closest they can get to having sex with me,” Tate said.

Retailers can place wholesale orders of Kiiroo’s Onyx masturbator and Pearl vibrator and the various Fleshlight models from adult distributors, including Eldorado Trading Company and Eropartner.

Also benefiting from the collaboration between Kiiroo and Fleshlight are cam performers, who can use the Onyx and Pearl devices for their own purposes. Cam performer Natalie Starr, for instance, stayed busy in the Flirt4Free booth at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo earlier this year showing off her own Fleshlight to fans.

Attendees of the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo may be familiar with the Piu, from ImToy. Also for men, the Piu vibrates in sync with various erotic movies via a smart device. An accompanying free app allows users to download films from an expanding collection of adult content programmed to mimic the rhythm and action on the screen.

Despite all the readily available items for men looking to get their rocks off in a virtual reality world, there are still those who dream big. Japanese erotic game developer Illusion announced the development of a full-body virtual reality sex suit so men can have sex in VR with an anime character thanks to the incorporation of a Samsung Gear VR headset, a Tenga masturbation device and prosthetic breasts.

“The suit, by the way, was an April Fool’s joke,” said Eddie Marklew, who handles global marketing for Tenga. Marklew said Tenga is not working with Illusion on any products, but noted the game development company has already created some products using the Tenga Cup series as the masturbation device.

“The device for VR plus Forcefeedback controller plus Tenga is apparently in the works,” Marklew said. “Again, this is by Illusion so we don’t know anything about the progress or if they really are trying to make a sellable product.”
