Snapchatting Texas Teach Busted for Sex with Student

Snapchatting Texas Teach Busted for Sex with Student

PASADENA, Texas—They should know better, but they don't. Teachers, that is, and the nude photos they idiotically send to underage paramours via Snapchat. Oops! Not another felony charge!

Yes, that's just what 24-year-old Texas biology teacher Ashley Zehnder did, and now she's facing a felony charge for having an "inappropriate relationship" with a minor. The fact that the student was 17 years old and one of the luckiest kids in school is totally beside the point and a sick thought to have! Sick!!

But this story is less about an inappropriate (and illegal) sexual tryst between a teacher and student, and more about the almost unbelievable manner in which Zehnder not only fashioned her own metaphorical noose, but slipped it over her own head and tightened it against her own neck. If she had simply done nothing, nothing might have been the outcome.

Instead, according to a probable cause affidavit prepared by the responding police officer, it was Zehnder who expressed concern to a school administrator earlier this month "about rumors of students texting around an inappropriate photo of herself.” Zehnder, according to the affidavit notes, suggested that a student had somehow “gotten on her phone and sent the picture.”

That was her first mistake. "In short order," reports The Smoking Gun, "an assistant principal interviewed a male student who admitted having a naked photo of Zehnder (who is pictured at right). The teen added that he was provided the image by a classmate who spoke of having a sexual relationship with Zehnder.

"When interviewed by police," continues the site, "the second teen admitted that he began having sex with Zehnder last May. He gave cops a description of Zehnder’s Houston apartment and bedroom, as well as details of their sexual encounters. The teen also said that Zehnder sent him a 'naked photo of herself through Snapchat,' an image he forwarded to 'some of his friends at school.'"

Using Snapchat to send a nude to the kid was her second mistake. At first, the young teacher denied the affair, but proof in the form of the snapchatted photo and messages on the kid's phone forced her to concede the point. She resigned forthwith and now faces the felony charge.

She really should have known better.

Assault With a Deadly Sex Toy?

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

A haunted house clown is arrested by local cops after a woman and her 17-year-old daughter complain about being assaulted with sex toys. Really.

Assault With a Deadly Sex Toy?

MONTGOMERY, Ill.—This one really takes the dildo. In fact, you may think it's a joke or satire, but it isn't; it actually happened. According to dailyherald.com, "A woman and her 17-year-old daughter have sued the Massacre Haunted House in Montgomery, arguing they were assaulted and verbally harassed by two workers dressed as clowns holding sex toys. The lawsuit, filed by Montgomery resident Regina Janito, seeks unspecified damages for intentional infliction of emotional distress, assault and negligence on behalf of the haunted house operators."

An arrest was made by police. The attorney for the aggrieved party summoned his best rhetoric to describe the horror his clients experienced. "The conduct of the haunted house and its employees crossed all lines of decency and common sense," said Michael Huseman. "Their conduct was outrageous and extreme. My client and her daughter were traumatized by the event. We hope this whole thing is resolved quickly."

So what actually happened to inspire such intense comments? "According to the lawsuit, Janito, her daughter and three other minors drove to the haunted house on Oct. 11," reported Harry Hitzeman for the Daily Herald. "They were met in the parking lot by two men dressed as clowns and holding sex toys who began to harass the group, according to the suit.

"One employee, Robert Keller, used a sex toy to poke the 17-year-old," continued Hitzeman. "The other employee, identified in the suit as John Doe, simulated a sex act with the toy while Keller made repeated lewd and offensive remarks to Janito and the girl. All four left the grounds without buying tickets, the suit states."

He also quotes the suit as claiming, "The acts committed by Keller and John Doe were beyond the standards of civilized decency and beyond the scope of what society is willing to tolerate."

The article adds that Keller was "eventually" arrested and charged with battery and disorderly conduct.

But the general manager of the haunted house is hardly contrite about the incident. Rather than apologize or explain it away as employees gone rogue, he responded with a comment issued via a PR firm.

"We make every effort to ensure our Halloween experience is as safe and as scary as possible," read the statement in part. "We abide by all regulations, take all allegations of misconduct seriously, and are cooperating with police. All the while, we are committed to continuing our Halloween tradition of fear and fright for many years to come."

The statement also indicated that "more than 100,000 patrons have visited over a decade and the 20,000-square-foot haunted house is recognized as best in the suburbs," reported Hitzeman.

The paper has a request for comment in to the Montgomery police, but had not heard back by post-time about what might just be the bogus arrest of the sex toy wielding clown.

The plaintiff gets her day in court January 8.

In case you were wondering, this is not the first time police had to be called to investigate a possible assault by sex toy.

LeWood Adopts ‘Sweet New Pussy’ in Latest Evil Angel Release

LeWood Productions Showcases Fresh Porn Talent In Nov. 5 DVD & VOD Release

LeWood Adopts 'Sweet New Pussy' in Latest Evil Angel Release

Posted Oct 22nd, 2014 02:49 PM

LOS ANGELES—LeWood Productions poses the question: What shows off tail, purrs and pounces? They offer up the answser in their next big release: Sweet New Pussy, coming November 5 on DVD and VOD from Evil Angel. The new title features five new sex kittens on the prowl, and it can be previewed now in a trailer on EvilAngelVideo.com.

"We decided to do this movie because we wanted to shoot some of the up-and-coming, new, hot and popular girls in the industry," says Mark Wood, the movie's co-director and co-producer (with LeWood partner/wife Francesca Lé).

ADVERTISEMENT


Wood provides stud service in several scenes, so it's no surprise he was enthused to include the voluptuous, spectacular Keisha Grey in Sweet New Pussy. He calls Grey "the new 'it girl'" and adds, "I knew when I decided to do this movie I had to have her in it." In her scene, Grey attracts Wood's attention by mashing her oiled boobs in his window. She shows off her game, deep-throating and riding Wood's wood, her comely cheeks rolling, till he spunks her gorgeous, gap-toothed face. Wood came out sold on Grey's whole package, if not awed. "Not only perfect tits, but a perfect booty to match. Just unbelievable..."

"The buzz around the industry is that Keisha Grey will be huge," says Evil Angel Domestic Sales Manager Justin Rich. "Considering the way LeWood presents girls, Sweet New Pussy is the perfect vehicle for her talent. What synergy — both Keisha and LeWood will benefit when fans see this movie."

There's more catnip for fans of porn's latest hot wildcats, according to Wood. "Ariana Grand might not be well known yet, but has one of the best butts out there. She even has a wonderful tan line to help accentuate that fact. Carmen Caliente has that South Beach look, with the super tan skin and super blonde hair and sexy body [that] already delivers heated performances. Bailey Bae is able to pull off that shorthair look that most girls are unable to pull off. Very sexy. Scarlet Red just graced the cover of a major men's magazine recently, and you would think being so new, she might not let it go, as they say, in her performances, but she brings it in this scene with the best of them."

Cute brunette Grand cavorts bottomless in a pool and whimpers through a sweaty pounding. Caliente twerks in booty shorts tugged way up her ample crack, and then naked on Bill Bailey's big boner. The tall Bae turns to Wood for some fun, and blonde Red also gets Wood's special tutoring.

Everybody's looking for it, and thanks to LeWood Productions, Sweet New Pussy can be easily had. Asking for it by name won't even get you slapped.

For sales inquiries, contact Justin Rich: JRich@EvilAngel.com or (800) 442-6435, ext. 115.

For foreign sales, contact Alexandra (Alex) Kelley: Alex@EvilAngel.com or (818) 787-1414, ext. 106.

Utah Considers Putting ‘Fight the New Drug’ Talk on Curriculum

Utah Considers Putting 'Fight the New Drug' Talk on Curriculum

TAYLORSVILLE, UT—The Salt Lake County school district is currently engaged in an anti-porn pilot program in conjunction with the people from Fight the New Drug, whose message to kids and adults is that pornography is by nature addictive and has to be treated with a zero-tolerance policy. The program is being considered for expansion, and may even be officially added to the curriculum. Local CBS affiliate KUTV attended a Tuesday assembly for teens at Taylorsville High School put on by Fight the New Drug co-founder Clay Olsen, himself a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints who founded the anti-porn non-profit in January 2010 with fellow Utah State University graduates.

ADVERTISEMENT


"The co-founder of FightTheNewDrug.org started his talks at schools nationwide after he says he saw pornography's dark side first hand in his own family," wrote Heidi Hatch for the station. "He told the teens that his 'cousin struggled so severely [with pornography] that he actually served a prison sentence that rocked our family.'

"Without giving specifics," she added, "Olsen mentioned a scary trend of violence in online pornography. He said of all the porn online, 88 percent contains physical violence most often to women. Olsen uses research to show kids what could happen to the wiring of your brain if you become addicted."

And therein lies the rub. Olsen, as AVN noted when he started his site, purports to base his contentions on verifiable science, but in reality the science is anything but definitive, leaving Olsen to essentially spend his time at these assemblies lying to the students sitting before him.

"Kids filed into the assembly Tuesday whispering and giggling, even a little nervous," reports Hatch, "but a few minutes in, co-founder Clay Olsen had the kids eating out of the palm of his hand. He started by asking the kids to raise their hand if they had a brain and if they were looking for something to control it.

"He ended saying, 'If you don't remember anything, please remember porn is addictive, it kills love and hurts relationships.'"

One junior in attendance responded to the message by telling the reporter, "I didn't know how it could harm relationships and stuff, new to me."

He added later, "I don't think parents want to talk about it and kids don't want to talk about it either."

But Olsen surely does. According to Cosmopolitan, in a piece published today, "Fight the New Drug is an organization at hundreds of Canadian and U.S. schools that teaches that pornography is addictive and hurts relationships, or as they put it themselves, 'kills love.' The whole thing is presented in a way that really speaks to the youth in a cool and hip way, or whatever (think the anti-cigarette Truth campaign, but for porn)."

The goal for this campaign, as for any such campaign, is to extend the message as far as it can go, even onto the curriculums of school districts around the nation. To that end, local and state politicians were also in attendance Tuesday, assessing the talk and people's reaction to it.

Salt Lake County Council member Aimee Winder-Newton, who is a big fan of Fight the New Drug—"Because they take it not from a moral and religious aspect, but how it effects the brain society and relationships."—nonetheless told Hatch that "the program is not guaranteed to make its way through area schools. They are gauging public opinion, seeing how kids and parents react, and taking that back to their chambers to discuss. Taylorsville parents were invited to an open meeting at the high school on Tuesday night to learn more about the assembly and what their kids heard at school.

"Newton said she has not heard of any complaints about the assemblies, only requests for it to come to other schools and cities and to an even younger audience at elementary schools," added Hatch. "Newton said there is no plan for it to go to younger students right now, and that it would best be dealt with at home."

Representing state interests, Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes was also in the audience Tuesday, "...watching to gauge opinion on whether this assembly should be part of the curriculum."

Clearly, Utah is seriously flirting with making the Fight the New Drug message officially its own, but that might be a mistake for more reasons than one. Not only is the science behind their claims questionable at best, but as Cosmo writer Frank Kobola notes, the organization's message of addiction and abstinence is delivered to young people in a consistent tone of shame mixed with a forced appeal to individualism as a way to change personal behavior.  

"The problem here isn't the focus," observes Kobola. "I'm sure Fight the New Drug has kids' best interests at heart, and kids do need to know that there's a difference between the sex they see in porn and the sex they see in real life. This is the first generation that's really growing up with this kind of unprecedented access to porn. But functioning in this bubble where the difference between deviant and normal (if you can even find a definitive sexual normalcy) is completely binary is a terrible thing to do to kids who are already weirded out and confused at their newfound sex drives. Teach kids about healthy sex and love, sure, but don't make them feel terrible for having urges or curiosity."

Sure, that sort of rational and age-appropriate response sounds awesome, but it also sounds kind of accepting and open, and as Olsen and his Fight the New Drug team have long-since learned, fear—like sex—is what really sells!

PA Gov. Signs Bill Limiting Speech That Causes ‘Mental Anguish’

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

Apparently, someone was upset that a convicted murderer was giving a commencement speech

PA Gov. Signs Bill Limiting Speech That Causes 'Mental Anguish'

PHILADELPHIA, PA—Frank Rizzo had been out of the mayor's office for a year, and AVN was still about two years from being born when journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal shot Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner in an exchange of gunfire at the site of a Center City traffic stop. Despite conflicting eyewitness testimony, Abu-Jamal was convicted in 1982 of first degree murder and sentenced to death, though that part of the sentence was voided and Abu-Jamal is now serving a life term in Mahanoy State Correctional Institution.

ADVERTISEMENT


Which isn't to say that Abu-Jamal has been silent all this time. He's written eight books, been published in the Yale Law Review, done a series of commentaries for NPR that were never aired, and done pre-recorded commencement speeches for Evergreen State College, Antioch College, and most recently his alma mater, Goddard College—but that may prove to be his last one.

See, even after 30 years, lots of folks in Philly are still pretty upset with Abu-Jamal, first because he escaped the death penalty, and second because he's got a lot of support within Philly's black community, many of whom think he got framed for the murder. And now, all that public rage has been codified into something called the "Revictimization Relief Act," aka Senate Bill 508.

"Over the years we've heard much about the constitutional rights of prison inmates when the focus should be on victims," said PA Gov. Tom Corbett as he signed the Act into law yesterday near the corner of 13th and Locust Streets where Faulkner was killed—and about six blocks from where the U.S. Constitution was debated. "This bill was meant to strengthen, to clarify, and to empower the victims."

Actually, what it's meant to do is stifle speech, most notably Abu-Jamal's, but also anyone who says something that makes a crime victim feel bad. Or as the new law puts it, allows victims of a crime to file a civil suit against anyone who engages in "conduct which perpetuates the continuing effect of the crime on the victim."

Or as Maureen Faulkner, widow of the victim, put it, "To be in your car, driving along in California, only to hear him doing a commencement speech on the radio, it rips open a scab."

And talk about fast-tracking! Abu-Jamal was invited to give the Goddard speech on September 29; Senate Bill 508 was passed less than three weeks later, on October 16.

That the bill is unconstitutional should be apparent to anyone, since nothing in the Constitution or any Supreme Court decision bans "hurt speech."

"Essentially, any action by an inmate or former offender that could cause 'mental anguish' could be banned by a judge," said Pennsylvania ACLU executive director Reggie Shuford said in a statement. "That can't pass constitutional muster under the First Amendment."

"The establishment of Philadelphia is using Mumia's case to silence all prisoners in the state," noted protester Johanna Fernandez. "What they're doing is they're essentially inflecting collective punishment on all prisoners in order to silence Mumia. It's a horrific employment of power in part of the establishment."

Guess it's a good thing no one in a Pennsylvania obscenity case has ever testified to being a victim, or everyone who works in an adult store in the state would have to spend the workday in silence!

UPDATED - Paris’ 80-Foot Butt Plug… er, Tree

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

UPDATED - Paris' 80-Foot Butt Plug... er, Tree

PARIS, France—The French are wondering, if you have an 80-foot tall butt plug, how large is the bidet that belongs to its owner? It's not exactly a philosophical question. Such a butt plug is currently on public display at Place Vendôme in Paris, courtesy of artist Paul McCarthy.

As HuffPo notes, however, the giant green monster is really an artistic rendering of something that grows in forests. "Of course, the massive sculpture isn't technically a butt plug," they report. "It's a Christmas tree, simply dubbed 'Tree,' that's made its way to Place Vendôme in Paris. The piece is part of the International Contemporary Art Fair (FIAC)... and is showing in conjunction with McCarthy's first solo show in France—'Chocolate Factory.'" But is it real chocolate?

ADVERTISEMENT


Not everyone is pleased as punch with the "tree." As HuffPo adds, "Yet despite all the seemingly obvious signs—it's art, McCarthy's an artist, FIAC is an art fair—the inflatable masterpiece is attracting attention not for its aesthetic uniqueness but for its resemblance to sex toys. In fact, France's far-right is not convinced the 24-meter high plant is an objet d'art at all."

One such objector, Printemps Français, tweeted, "'Anal plug or tree' Place Vendôme is disfigured... Paris is humiliated!"

A few others are equally outraged, but as Jennifer Flay, artistic director of FIAC, told Le Monde, tough merde!

"Of course this work is controversial," she actually said. "It plays on the ambiguity between a Christmas tree and a plug: this is neither a surprise nor a secret. But there is no offense against the public and enough ambiguity to not disturb the children. This work has also received all necessary approvals: the Prefecture of Police, the Mayor of Paris and the Ministry of Culture, in collaboration with the Comité Vendôme... What is art [meant to do] if not to disturb, to prompt questions, to reveal flaws in the company?"

Vive la France!

UPDATE

Turns out some French people really hated the "tree," and this weekend cut the support lines holding it up. Per The Guardian, "Cables supporting the 24-metre green piece by US artist Paul McCarthy – which he said was inspired by a Christmas tree and a butt plug – were cut on Saturday, leaving the artwork slumped on the pavement in the Place Vendôme and forcing a security guard to deflate it, police said."

The attack was apparently coordinated. "An official from the FIAC contemporary art fair, which put on the exhibition, said the offenders had first unplugged the pump that kept the structure standing up," reported the paper, which added that fair organizers said the art piece would be put back up as soon as possible. 

Some people see the attack as an inevitable outcome of artist McCarthy's illinformed impressions of the French. Over at the conservative TownHall.com, American ex-pat Rachel Marsden complains, "As a North American native and conservative who has lived in Paris for nearly six years, I've remarked that the biggest stereotypes about the French are that they're culturally suicidal, sexually depraved, antiwar leftists."

She adds, "While this 'art' might earn a chuckle in the U.S. if it were inflated on Venice Beach, Place Vendome is not in Los Angeles or San Francisco. Imagine if some French citizen were to stick a massive sex toy beside the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. That would be a closer cultural approximation. Place Vendome is home to the Vendome Column, a monument commissioned by Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte to commemorate the defeat of the Holy Roman Empire in the Battle of Austerlitz.

"McCarthy, whose previous 'art' has included an inflatable 'number two' that appeared in Hong Kong and a sculpture depicting former U.S. President George W. Bush engaged in a sex act with pigs, said he figured the French would be more sexually liberated and was surprised by the violent reaction," she continues. "Apparently he never asked himself: 'How might the French view a foreigner placing a giant sex object next to a national monument reflecting their historical military sacrifice and glory?' Instead, in concocting this project, it appears that he went straight to lowest-common-denominator rationale: 'The French like sex.'"

She may have a point, though it's unfortunate that she has to frame it so ideologically and unforgivingly; for instance, when she blames McCarthy for failing "to take his thinking one step further and consider the consequences of its placement next to a monument of great national significance." But to be fair (which Marsden is not), can McCarthy, a Los Angeles-based artist, really be blamed for the placement of pieces by the FIAC art fair organizers, who are French?

Marsden says of McCarthy's effort at PLace Vendome, "It all proved to be a gross miscalculation by the artist about French people and culture," but maybe, in truth, it was a slight, rather than gross miscalculation, exposing a rift in French culture that even some Franch people are interested in exploring publicly.

Storyline based on tabloid headlines of outed ‘Duke porn star’ airs this evening at 6 p.m. PST/9 p.m. EST on NBC

SVU’

Posted Oct 22nd, 2014 10:22 AM

NEW YORK CITY—Duke University student and teen porn sensation Belle Knox’s story has been ripped straight from the headlines and is the main plot point of tonight’s Law & Order: SVU episode, airing at 6 p.m. PST/9 p.m. EST on NBC-TV.

The storyline is taken straight from tabloid coverage of when Knox was “outed” as a porn star by a fellow Duke University student. The SVU episode centers on a young coed, who presses charges on her fellow male students after an on-campus gang rape. The coed gets discovered as a porn performer; the Special Victims Unit detectives discuss how the young lady, in this day and age of web and technology, could have possibly thought she could keep the fact a secret.

ADVERTISEMENT


SVU is my favorite show,” said Knox. “I’m thrilled they are basing the lead character for this week’s premiere episode off of my story. It’s surreal.”

The preview for tonight’s 6 p.m. PST/9 p.m. EST episode, entitled "Pornstar's Requiem," can be seen here.

Belle’s in-depth, five-part Conde Nast documentary, Becoming Belle Knox, launched last week here. All five episodes showcasing the intimate details of Belle Knox’s life aired at once on the site. To view the trailer for Becoming Belle Knox, click here. All chapters for the documentary series can also be viewed at TheScene’s YouTube channel.

Fans can find Belle Knox here and on Twitter; for modeling and performance scheduling as well as media inquiries, email here. For feature dance bookings, click here.

CT Prisoner Sues to Retain Renaissance Art Book Deemed Porn

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

CT Prisoner Sues to Retain Renaissance Art Book Deemed Porn

CHESHIRE, CT—When it comes to prisons and porn, times certainly have changed. This author well remembers that back in the Fall of 1984, in Allenwood (PA) Federal Prison Camp, it was an infraction to feed the polydactyl cats that roamed the property, but no one seemed to give a shit about inmates' reading matter, which included several issues of Screw magazine that the inmates lent to one another, and even the occasional issue of Playboy or Penthouse.

ADVERTISEMENT


But times have changed, especially in state prisons, where management is far more responsive to conservative pressure groups and politicians, and while we don't know what policy was set by the Connecticut Department of Correction regarding nude photos and/or porn in the first decade of this century, as of 2012, thanks to a conservative state judge, inmate Akove Ortiz was denied the right to possess magazines like Playboy—and now, they've taken away inmate Dwight Pink Jr.'s copy of The Atlas of Foreshortening, a book that's not likely to raise an eyebrow in any other venue.

See, Pink, who'll be spending most of the next half-century behind bars for having murdered a 35-year-old father of two by shooting him five times in the head and stabbing him seven times through the heart with a sword(!), seems to have developed a yen to learn how to draw the human form, and he decided that The Atlas of Foreshortening would be a good reference book on how to use perspective in his art—a technique that was absent from all paintings and drawings prior to the Renaissance.

Trouble is, the book uses photos of nude humans to illustrate its lessons, and that's where Pink ran afoul of Department of Correction Administrative Directive 10.7, which bans all material that contains "pictorial depictions of sexual activity or nudity."

Just one caveat, though: In what might be a nod toward the Supreme Court's Miller test for obscenity, the rules exempt "materials which, taken as a whole, are literary, artistic, educational or scientific in nature"—which would certainly seem to apply to a Renaissance art book. Indeed, one reviewer described it as "extremely useful to students and practitioners of the fine art of figure drawing," while another deemed it a "valuable reference for fine artists, sculptors, illustrators, designers, and others."

But the Department of Correction doesn't see it that way, having commented just after Directive 10.7 was put into effect that "the ban was intended to improve the work environment for prison staffers, especially female staffers, who might be inadvertently exposed to pornography."

So Pink sued—as have about half a dozen other inmates who've suffered similar bans, according to Connecticut Attorney General spokeswoman Jaclyn Falkowski, whose cases in both federal and state courts are "still being litigated."

Indeed; the state filed its response to Pink's lawsuit yesterday, arguing that Pink's First Amendment rights weren't violated, and "Any injury or harm, if any, was caused solely by plaintiff’s own acts, omissions, or conduct and was not due to any wrongful conduct by the defendants."

Still, Quinnipiac University law professor William Dunlap, while conceding that the courts have generally upheld bans where the state has proven to have had a legitimate goal "such as maintaining safety in the prisons or keeping the material out of the hands of sex offenders," says Pink stands a chance if he "can show it was improperly used in his case to suppress art or literature."

The Atlas of Foreshortening isn't the first book Pink has ordered that prison officials seized before delivery. One was Shameless Art, which features paintings by such respected pin-up artists as Gil Elvgren, while another was Gentle Birth Practices, about alternative childbirth practices—but hey, the guy's gonna be locked up till he's 100, so he's gotta do something to pass the time, eh?

The Cost of Blocking Pirate Sites in the UK

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

The Cost of Blocking Pirate Sites in the UK

CYBERSPACE—It's unclear if the scenario would play out similarly for anyone attempting to use British courts to block a pirate site pushing adult content, but TorrentFreak has a tasty piece about the "skyrocketing" cost of blocking a music or movie pirating site. It ain't cheap.

"On Friday," writes Andy, "news broke that luxury brand company Richemont had succeeded in its quest to have several sites selling counterfeit products blocked by the UK’s largest ISPs. The landmark ruling, which opens the floodgates for perhaps tens of thousands of other sites to be blocked at the ISP level, contained some surprise information on the costs involved in blocking infringing websites. The amounts cited by Justice Arnold all involve previous actions undertaken by the movie and music industry against sites such as The Pirate Bay and KickassTorrents."

ADVERTISEMENT


Cut to the chase: Information "provided to the court reveals that an unopposed application for a section 97A blocking order" works out at around £14,000 per website. That currently works out to a little over $22,500.

Regarding music, Andy reports, "The record labels’ costs aren’t revealed but Justice Arnold said 'it is safe to assume that they are of a similar magnitude to the costs incurred by the film studios.'

"In copyright cases," he adds, "47 sites have been blocked at the ISP level = £658,000." That currently works out to a tad over $1,060,000.

TF also reports, however, that as the number of blocked sites increases, so do costs for the ISPs required to block them. While the ISPs are vague as to the actual costs, they say, according to Andy, that "they are still being incurred on an ongoing basis. All incur ongoing costs when filtering websites such as those on the Internet Watch List, but copyright injunctions only add to the load."

Who will bear those costs into the future? According to Justice Arnold, “It is obvious that ISPs faced with the costs of implementing website orders have a choice. They may either absorb these costs themselves, resulting in slightly lower profit margins, or they may pass these costs on to their subscribers in the form of higher subscription charges."

Andy's conclusion sounds like the probable outcome: "Since all ISPs will have to bear similar costs, it seems likely that the former will prove most attractive to them, as usual."

Montreal Teacher Fired For Filming Nude Scenes… 50 Years Ago

Montreal Teacher Fired For Filming Nude Scenes... 50 Years Ago

MONTREAL, Canada—Jacqueline Laurent-Auger, now 73, spent the past 15 years teaching at Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf, a private boys school, founded by Jesuits in 1928 but now putatively secular, and perhaps best known as the alma mater of former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and his son Justin. But despite her hard work and good reputation among students and faculty, her contract was not renewed for the current school year.

Why? Because she appeared nude in several softcore European (mostly French) movies in the 1960s and '70s, including The Secret Diary of a Nymphomaniac, Hot and Naked, and Swedish Sex Games—and her enterprising students managed to find out that fact while searching the internet for... hockey scores? Brownie recipes? Who knows? But obviously, it couldn't be porn!

"The availability on the Internet of erotic films in which she acted created an entirely new context that was not ideal for our students," the school said in an official statement. "After discussion and reflection, we concluded that adult films must remain just that, a product for adults... The fact that these films were shot 40 years ago doesn’t change their bold and suggestive—even explicit—character," adding that "the students’ discovery of their teacher’s films affected the atmosphere in class."

Even so, when Laurent-Auger was informed of her dismissal last July, she asked if there had been any problem with her teaching, and was told there was not—suggesting that the "atmosphere in class" was in fact unaffected.

"I did it as a young actress to make a little money," Laurent-Auger explained in an interview on Monday. "The idea of throwing someone out the door for something they did almost 50 years ago is idiotic. It makes me angry... This is petty and small-minded. We’re in the year 2014, not 1950."

She wasn't the only one pissed off by the decision. At least one local blogger termed the school's decision "retroactive slut-shaming"—a telling comment from the province next door to the one that saw the birth of the "Slutwalk."

"[I]f the logic of Brebeuf College is followed," wrote Esther Begin of The Montreal Journal, "the teacher was 'punished' for having explored, nearly a half-century earlier, a film art form, in this case the soft erotic movie (miles away from today's triple XXX hardcore porn), [whose popularity] was booming at the time and which aroused much more curiosity than scandal ... Work which, moreover, allowed her to earn enough money to continue studies abroad."

Perhaps this should be a warning to all adult performers: If you plan to go into teaching when you're in your 60s, perhaps you'd better think twice about appearing in sex scenes today—or maybe work to change the public's perception of your current profession!

Pictured, l-r: Jacqueline Laurent-Auger, now and then.

Rep. Issa Accuses Fed of Complicity in Operation Choke Hold

Rep. Issa Accuses Fed of Complicity in Operation Choke Hold

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA Dist. 49), chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, sent a letter last week to Janet Yellen, chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, co-signed with Rep. Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican and chairman of the House Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Job Creation and Regulatory Affairs, that accuses the Fed of being complicit, along with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), in alleged efforts to "pressure banks to terminate relationships with legal yet disfavored industries, without regard to the legitimacy or risk profile of individual companies." Adult entertainment is reportedly on the list of problematic industries targeted by Operation Choke Hold.

ADVERTISEMENT


In the letter to Yellen, the legislators state, "There is evidence that the Federal Reserve Board may be operating in a similar manner. On August 8, 2014, SunTrust Bank—a state-chartered member  of the Federal Reserve System supervised and regulated  by the Federal  Reserve  Board—issued a statement in response to several well-publicized account closures: "We have decided to discontinue banking relationships with three types of businesses—specifically payday lenders, pawn shops and dedicated check-cashers—due to compliance requirements." [emphasis added] SunTrust Bank is the largest bank in the United States, with more than 400,000 small business clients. The Board's enforcement of a compliance regime that forces banks to sever all relations with legal and legitimate customers is totally unacceptable."

The letter also asks the Fed to provide the Committee with all documentation or communication generated after January 1, 2012 by employees of the Federal Reserve that refer or relate to pawn shops, tobacco-related industries, money services businesses, short-term lenders, or firearms and ammunition businesses. The deadline for the Fed to provide the requested information is Oct. 30.

According to a report on Operation Choke Hold issued in May 2014 by Issa's Committee, and reported on by AVN here, "In 2012, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation issued revised guidance for FDIC-supervised institutions concerning their relationships with payment processors. The guidance identified a variety of businesses that pose 'elevated ... legal reputational, and compliance risks' to depository institutions."

Industries identified by the FDIC include "credit repair companies, debt consolidation and forgiveness programs, online-gambling related operations, government grant or will-writing kits, payday or subprime loans, pornography, online tobacco or firearms sales, pharmaceutical sales, sweepstakes, and magazine subscriptions."

The issue because a hot topic last year when adult performers and companies reportedly had accounts closed and loan applications refused by high profile banking institutions.

The Oct. 16 letter to Fed Chair Janet Yellen can be read here.

Court Okays Lawsuit Against Actress Who Refused Nude Scenes

Court Okays Lawsuit Against Actress Who Refused Nude Scenes

LOS ANGELES—Hollywood actresses aren't necessarily the brightest bulbs on the tree, but Anne Greene may be the one that blew all the fuses—and now an L.A. Superior Court judge has rejected Greene's motion to strike the breach-of-contract lawsuit filed against her by the production company she says misled her about the role she was to play in the "Skinemax" series Femme Fatales.

As AVN reported here, in 2012, Greene auditioned for a principal role in the second season of the continuing series, and although the producers sent her the series' "sizzle reel" and an episode, as well as casting breakdowns of her intended roles which made it clear that they required "partial nudity," she balked when it came time to doff her duds.

ADVERTISEMENT


According to Greene's complaint against series producers True Crime, Cinemax, HBO (which owns Cinemax) and Time Warner (which owns HBO), she would never have agreed to the role if she'd known it involved "soft-core porn," even though she had signed, along with her contract, a personal release and a nudity rider—and that she only performed in her episode, "Jailbreak," because of the producers' threatened $100,000-plus breach of contract suit. Greene claimed, among other things, that all this on-set strife caused a "hostile work environment," and that True Crime had violated several union rules, including failing to close the set to outsiders.

The producers, who did in fact countersue, tell a different story. According to their complaint, although Greene had received her script beforehand, once on the set, she refused to do a simulated oral sex scene, forcing a last-minute script rewrite. But on day 2 of the shoot, she objected to being topless in a simulated sex scene, which the producers hoped to cure by applying pasties to her nipples—but that violated one of HBO's rules (who knew?) and forced her to be replaced with a body double, causing additional expense of both time and money, particularly during the editing stage.

In any case, the producers' counterclaim "set off an angry motion to strike, essentially an effort to kill the counterclaims by dressing them up as a retaliatory action to impinge her First Amendment right to petition a hostile work environment," reported legal analyst Eriq Gardner in the Hollywood Reporter. She also used the motion to add a new claim that one of the actors with whom she was to work "wore a sock on his penis" and "allegedly began to bleed from his mouth onto Greene's face and body during the filming."

But L.A. Superior Court Judge Barbara Scheper won't have any of it. Ruling that True Crimes' counterclaims are not "retaliatory," and that the producers have "provided ample evidence that [they] will prevail," with the judge "specifically mentioning the videos and scripts the actress got when auditioning," Gardner concludes, "This all sets up one potentially crazy trial that's currently scheduled to begin on Feb. 17, 2015."

Rebecca More’s ‘Sex Tour of England’ Angers U.K. Politicians

Rebecca More's 'Sex Tour of England' Angers U.K. Politicians

BIRMINGHAM, UK—The U.S. may have had its "World's Biggest Gangbang" three or four times, but over in the United Kingdom, they have to settle for "Sex Tours," and U.K. porn star Rebecca More's started in Birmingham on Friday—and British politicians are none too happy about it.

By contrast, Tanya Tate's Sex Tour of Ireland five years ago doesn't seem to have raised nearly the ire being directed at More—though in 2012, the University College Dublin did cancel Tate's speaking engagement before the College's Literary and Historical Society for no stated reason.

ADVERTISEMENT


More's tour is more of a contest, and the participants will soon find themselves cablecast on the U.K.'s Television X channel, not to mention will likely appear on a DVD featuring the hottest contestants, but that hasn't stopped (and in fact may have encouraged) several British tabloids from labeling her "the scourge of society," "shameless" and "sordid."

More's sexual partners were chosen from among the thousands of entrants—more than 2K from Birmingham alone—who scanned bar codes prominently featured in Television X's full-page ads in those very same shaming tabloids, and anyone can follow the tour's progress by checking Twitter for posts with the hashtag #DoRebecca.

According to an article on The Daily Beast, More scooped up 20 Birmingham locals with whom to have sex in her oversized van, including Matthew Phelan (pictured with More), who afterwards tweeted, "Of course I was on the van we had a fun day."

The tour continued Saturday in Manchester, Sunday in Leeds, and in a day or so, it will arrive in London's Camden borough, where Green Party Councillor Sian Berry opined to the press that, "It sounds horrible. It does not sound like the sort of thing we would want in Camden."

Birmingham Perry Barr MP Khalid Mahmood had a similar reaction.

"It obviously sends out the message that this kind of thing goes on in Birmingham," Mahmood stated to the local newspaper, the Birmingham Mail. "That's not the right message for the city to send out and it creates a negative image of Birmingham. We can't confront what happens in a van, but I would urge the local authority to ensure that it doesn't in any way affect our communities and young people."

More's also been tweeting about the event, and she can be followed here.

FSC Lifts Production Hold

FSC Lifts Production Hold

Posted Oct 20th, 2014 02:27 PM

LOS ANGELES—The current production hold has been lifted. The Free Speech Colation’s statement is as follows:

“The Free Speech Coalition announces that the production hold from last week has been lifted, and production can continue effective immediately. A production hold was called when it was determined that a performer in the PASS database might have been exposed to HIV in late September, after off-set contact with a performer from an out-of-state set that was not observing PASS protocols. We called a production hold while we conducted precautionary testing with that performer and anyone he or she performed with. All precautionary testing has been completed and there is a medical determination that the performer pool has not been compromised.

ADVERTISEMENT


“Diane Duke, head of the Free Speech Coalition, thanked producers and performers for honoring the hold over the weekend.

"’We know that production holds and moratoriums are difficult for performers and producers, but they are integral to the safety of the PASS performer pool. We also realize that the lack of information in these situations can also be frustrating; however, it's crucial that we maintain medical privacy for the performers involved.’

"’The PASS database and protocols are crucial to protecting performers. This is why we are working so doggedly on regulations that will encourage full compliance with PASS no matter where they shoot. All indications are that full compliance with the PASS system continues to protect performers and prevent on-set transmissions. In addition, our moratorium protocols effectively provided testing and prevented any compromise to the performer pool.’"

The 3 Major Sins of Sales Management

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

CEOs must be aware of how they’re using key people

The 3 Major Sins of Sales Management

Posted Oct 20th, 2014 12:45 PM

This article originally ran in the September issue of AVN magazine.

It’s a simple fact of business: Without sales, no one else downstream can do their jobs, says veteran sales manager and business speaker Jack Daly. Because of how vital sales are to a company, CEOs frequently tend to misuse their best people, he says.

“There are three sins that minimize the sales management role, which ultimately holds the company back from achieving its growth,” says Daly, author of Hyper Sales Growth.

ADVERTISEMENT


“When they misallocate key players, small to medium-sized businesses tend to go into one of two directions. They either stay small to medium, or they go out of business. When you ask why, it most often comes down to a violation of one or more of these three sins of sales management. Having the right people in important spots is absolutely the secret to success.”

To ensure continued growth, Daly says the people at the top must avoid the following:

Sin No. 1 … is committed when the CEO or owner wears the hat of the sales manager. If you are doing that, you’re essentially relegating both the CEO job and the sales manager job to part-time status. In effect, you’re saying, “I’m going to grow my business part time.” If you want your business to grow, you must grow your sales force, and you need someone doing that full time.

Sin No. 2 … is to make the best salesperson the sales manager. It can work, but seldom does. The usual scenario, however, is you lose your best salesperson and get a mediocre sales manager. The role and the responsibilities are entirely different. A salesperson’s role is to win new customers and nurture the ones you have, thereby differentiating you from your competitors. The sales manager’s job involves recruiting, training, coaching, building and developing. Being effective at one of those jobs is not an indicator that a person will be equally effective in the other. Salespeople are used to immediate gratification, involving a deal-to-deal routine. Sales managers, by contrast, must take their time to recruit, train and coach. A salesperson might easily become disenchanted with the pace of the new role and look for another sales job, perhaps with your competitor.

Sin No. 3 … is probably the most grievous of all. The best salesperson is made a sales manager, but he or she is also required to continue booking business. It’s absolutely ruinous. The person’s focus will remain fixed on the customer, as that is how their compensation is driven. Accordingly, the sales team will be underserved, missing the opportunity for leveraged growth.

The key to growth is to put the right people in the right places, Daly says.
“Since sales drive business, it’s essential to match skills and personality types to the jobs, and to ensure the people can focus on their roles,” Daly says.

Jack Daly, author of Hyper Sales Growth” (JackDaly.net), is an experienced and inspirational sales trainer and sales coaching expert who, as a sought-after speaker, motivates audiences to take action in the areas of sales planning and training, and customer loyalty. Daly draws upon more than 20 years of business experience, with several successful stints as the CEO of fast-growing companies. He has a bachelor of science degree in accounting, a master of business administration degree, was a captain in U.S. Army and is an author with audio and DVD programs.

If you would like to run the above article, please feel free to do so. I can also provide images to accompany it. If you’re interested in interviewing Jack Daly or having him write an exclusive article for you, let me know and I’ll gladly work out the details. Lastly, please let me know if you’d like to receive a copy of his book, “Hyper Sales Growth,” for possible review.

New Sensations Releases ‘Tales From The Edge: Boss Fantasies’

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

Boss Fantasies'

Posted Oct 20th, 2014 12:19 PM

New Sensations announces the release of Boss Fantasies, a portrayal of illicit office sex from award-winning writer and director Jacky St. James. The movie is the second title to be released through the studio's new imprint "Tales from the Edge," a companion line to Digital Sin's "Tabu Tales" meant to explore themes and relationships rooted in the traditional, but taken to the extreme and, often, taboo.

"There's something inherently exciting about the forbidden territory of sex with one's boss,” Jacky St. James said. "There's all this baggage that comes with that... what your coworkers might say if they find out, if you'll get fired, promoted, etc. The risks are what make it exciting. If a sexual attraction already exists, it can be dangerous and explosive. This movie captures the very essence of sex with one's boss and the different dynamics at play within it."

ADVERTISEMENT


Boss Fantasies features four tales of torrid office trysts ranging from playful office flings to manipulative and immoral power plays. The movie features performances from adult stars Skin Diamond, Chanel Preston, A.J. Applegate, and hot newcomer Karla Kush.

“Seducing the boss is a fun and sexy fantasy that many people have. Whether it’s an attraction to their employer’s power or an opportunity to subvert their authority through sex, it’s exciting because it’s based on reality; on someone you know and deal with every day," Skin Diamond said. “Having the chance to finally work with Jacky St. James was awesome. We had wanted to do so for more than a year. To do a project as fun as this was a real treat. I can’t wait for us to work together again, and I hope everyone loves Boss Fantasies.”

Karla Kush said, "I think art imitates life and this is something that happens in the real world. People do have sex to further themselves, whether it be with their career or anything. So, I think it’s realistic but, obviously, it's a little dramatized. But, it's hot so it's good. I always want to give my fans versatility, new things to digest of me, new versions of me. This is something I've never played before: an office girl. I can't wait for them to see it."

Tales from the Edge: Boss Fantasies co-stars Richie Calhoun, Anthony Rosano, Otto Bauer, and Steven St. Croix. The DVD has a runtime of 120 minutes, and includes an exclusive photo gallery and candid behind-the-scenes featurette.

Fresh Face: Marina Angel

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

Marina Angel

This article originally ran in the October 2014 issue of AVN magazine

One of the new breed of native Floridians invading Porn Valley by way of the East Coast network, Marina Angel still commutes back and forth between there and L.A., but she’s already managed to recruit another of her homeland hotties, longtime friend Carmen Caliente, to the Other Hollywood. Here, however, she fills us in on how she herself got her into the game.

ADVERTISEMENT


From: Wesley Chapel, FL

Age: 18

Height: 5-foot-2

Measurements: 34B-24-34 

First shoot: A girl/girl/boy for Porn Pros.

Why she jumped into the industry right at 18: "I was planning it since I was 17, actually. I think I’m a sex addict. I’m a freak."

What kind of porn she watched before making it: "Definitely a lot of girl/girl. I think I love girls more than guys, actually. But I still love guys. A lot."

Experience she had with girls before porn: "I did everything with girls except eating out. Fingering, scissoring, dry humping, everything. The first girl I ate out was Alina Li. But it wasn’t on camera."

What people who knew her beforehand think of her career: "I think people who knew me, knew me could see this coming. But I was a really good girl, getting great grades, I was on the honor roll, so I think a lot of the people who knew me like that would never have guessed. They’re definitely shocked. Especially people from church."

Ambitions for her career: "I imagine I’ll do this for a couple years. If I leave with a nice chunk of cash afterward, that would be nice, but I’m really just doing this for fun. I’m doing this for me."

Thing people wouldn’t guess about her: “I’m always playing these nice, innocent roles, but the truth is I am a freak. I mean a real freak. A lot of the craziest stuff I do doesn’t even make it on camera.”

What she’s got coming up: "I’m thinking about doing anal soon. Because why not?"

Words she lives by: "’Carpe diem’ [which is tattooed on her right wrist] and ‘live hard die young.’ I mean, I don’t want to die young, but I want to have the most fun I can while I can, because you never know, you could be gone tomorrow."

Industry Voices DIscuss Trend to Take Affiliate Programs Private

This article originally ran in the October 2014 issue of AVN magazine.

Many years ago there were paysite owners and affiliates, living in harmony and working together for the mutual benefit of both entities. At least that’s how the nostalgic fairytale is often told by old-timers who look back fondly on bigger paychecks during days now long gone. The deeper reality is that the affiliate relationship served an important purpose at that time, with many professional affiliates creating massive amounts of traffic to feed paysites that were free to focus on other business necessities like content creation, customer service and retention. However, with a steady stream of outside factors evolving the business model and a whole lot of internal pressure caused by affiliate blowups, many site owners are taking their products and services private.

In some cases they are completely private and rely entirely on in-house traffic with the added benefit of avoiding copycats. In other instances they become invite-only programs that retain most of their traffic without most of their affiliate headaches. We asked some well-known program owners and longtime affiliates for their point of view on this important topic, because it is quickly changing the entire adult online business paradigm.

There are many program owners who were willing to explain why they went private as long as nothing would be printed about who they are, what domains they own or anything else that might lead to retribution from what one referred to as “butt-hurt webmasters who asked for more than they are worth.” The consensus among this faceless group comes down to a long list of incidents when affiliates would complain publicly or attack their brands privately while providing little or no revenue. “I can’t even count the times someone would post stupid stuff on GFY about me or my program that wasn’t even true, and then I’d see they had sent me less than 100 clicks in a month and less than 1 sale in the last year,” said one now-private site owner.

Of course, not all affiliates are more trouble than they are worth to a program. Some “whales” generate hundreds or thousands of sales per month for affiliate programs …  but it is true that nobody sees them flaming program owners on message boards as a method of getting what they want. That’s why some programs are developing partially private programs.

“Instead of taking a program entirely private let's consider some of the main reasons behind doing so,” said C.R. Brown, aka Kroy, owner of Kroycom. “Applying the 80/20 rule most program owners find that a small percentage of all affiliates are responsible for the vast majority of affiliate-generated sales and rebills. Naturally this means most of their focus and attention should be spent on those kinds of affiliates. So taking an affiliate program private usually is done for the purpose of making sure highly productive affiliates get the attention and resources they deserve, while weeding out hobbyists and surfers who sometimes take up a lot of time but don't reciprocate with corresponding business. Further, some program owners find that an entirely private or invite-only program may lend it an aura of exclusivity—but this may come at a price. Affiliates with high traffic tend to be busy and don't like to wait around for approvals or invites. They see your site, they want to promote it NOW. So let them. By the time a "private" program gets around to reviewing and approving him, your potential whale may have moved on to your competitor. So instead of taking a program entirely private, many should consider offering priority support and custom tools to high-traffic affiliates, but keep signups open for affiliates of all sizes.”

“A lot of companies are taking traditional streams of affiliate marketing in house and we have as well,” said Magalie Rheault, FameDollars director. “For the last four years we’ve begun managing our own tube site channels, being more aggressive with media buying, testing new landers to optimize affiliate traffic, and doing our own e-mail marketing. Affiliates are still a strong part of our sales pie; however, we’re relying a bit less on them, like we did back in the day. This gives us way more tangible business intelligence that we can use and implement on a day-to-day basis, though that’s not exclusively why we’re doing it. A desire to build more knowledge on their own and have more direct control over their product has a lot to do with it as well.”

Loose Threads

Still, whether a program is completely public or partially public it has much more to deal with in terms of branding and reputation management than a completely private program would ever need to navigate. One program that has repeatedly been targeted recently by affiliate angst on message boards is ReallyUsefulCash.com, a program owned by one of the founders of YouPorn. which now produces its own content and uses years of data analysis to find sweet spots in the marketplace.

“ReallyUsefulCash.com is not affiliate friendly and I do not hide this fact. I did not want to have an open affiliate program, but against my better judgment I did, indeed, make it an open program. That is where I went wrong,” said JT of Really Useful Cash. “No one likes reading threads on GFY about their programs by someone insinuating all kinds of outlandish behavior just because he lost 0.2 percent of a sale due to a CCBill error.”

JT explained, “If you do not like what I do, stop sending me your traffic. Send it to someone else. Will you make more money? I don't know that answer, but until you switch it, neither do you. Of course everyone has a right to bring issues to everyone’s attention. I have no problem with that at all, and I would do the same thing if I was a traditional affiliate, but you are in control of your own traffic, just as I am in control of my own. I send traffic to other sites. I look at the $/click ratio I get on that traffic. I often do not even visit the site where I am sending traffic, other than making sure it’s a good fit with my traffic initially. I do not care if they have traffic leaks on their tours, I do not care if I do not get a percentage of a cross-sale, or members area up-sells. I do not care if I get a percentage of the mailer revenue they are gaining from my traffic. What I DO care about is the money I make on my traffic and I switch accordingly if things are not right, and that’s what I believe everyone should do.”

JT added, “In excess of 70 percent of my traffic is attributed to the tubes, less than 10 percent with standard affiliates. That is why I do everything for the tubes, and I do nothing for the standard affiliate.”

Anyone looking at the landscape of the adult online industry will notice that these arrangements are becoming much more common. “Look at the cash programs in this industry. How many programs this year have let their affiliate managers go? I know of quite a few, mine included. ... More and more sites are taking their cash programs private. There are threads on GFY about cash programs terminating affiliate accounts where there is no viable reason to have them active. Granted, some affiliates are golden. I have two such affiliates that I pay out over $60k each month, and their numbers are growing. They have almost zero contact with anyone at Really Useful. They build their own tools and need zero support from us. Now look at the other end of the spectrum. My old affiliate manager used to spend 90 percent of his time speaking to standard affiliates, getting my team to build bespoke tools for them, and getting virtually zero uplift in sales. Add in the problems of affiliate fraud and it becomes easy to see why so many program owners are shifting their sites away from the idea that more affiliates is somehow better.”

Support Issues

From the professional affiliate point of view, overlooking the distractions and seeing the larger picture is important. "I think it makes a lot of sense for some programs to go private, if it fits their needs," said Rick of TheBestPorn.com. "As a long-time affiliate, we respect your right to do whatever is best for your company legally. There’s no rule that states otherwise, even though some act like there is a set of unwritten rules, and every industry pivots as needed because nothing ever stays exactly the same. I do think one of the major issues discussed here is more about the overall relationship that is born the moment a company accepts a new affiliate. Too many companies put little to no resources into providing the level of support that’s required for a traditional affiliate to succeed. People scream when they’re not heard, which could also be avoided if the companies that aren’t properly set up to listen would simply not accept affiliates in the first place."

Other longstanding high-volume affiliates have also noted a change in the dynamic as well—partly from a lack of pre-screening, and even more so from an increase in the level of anger adult industry message boards now seem to harbor. “I can tell you, after 18 years of this, you are far more likely to have an affiliate work extra for you by engaging them personally and treating them with respect. It's not always about money,” Rick explained. “But in this way, affiliates will treat you with respect in return and approach you directly if they notice an issue whereas when a lack of respect or lack of trust creeps in, they are far more likely to run to public boards first. However, not everyone in the affiliate business is a professional, on either side of the aisle. Thus, that pre-screening process plays a part in this as well. Running to boards has never been my style, but I've certainly witnessed it, and it is almost always a direct result of trust issues, confidence issues, or a lack of respect. Affiliates go to each other when they feel they cannot get the attention or respect of the programs they represent and then the boards themselves do nothing to positively affect any outcome. They just pour more fuel on the fire and create further resentment.”

Giving Social

Looking back over the entire history of affiliate marketing online, it’s hard to overstate the importance of Wasteland.com and owner Colin Rowntree, who many may recall was the first site owner ever to process adult sales through CCBill. During the affiliate heyday, Wasteland had multiple affiliate managers and a “more are always welcome” approach to webmaster leads. Now times have changed, and while the SpiceCash program does still accept new affiliates, they are highly vetted and accepted on a case-by-case basis.

“I am very much in favor of making our affiliate program ‘semi-private’ but will always retain my current affiliates and take on new ones that have the experience and ‘industry legs’ to actually drive traffic,” Rowntree said. “The thing that we have done is to focus more on providing exclusive and custom marketing content for qualified affiliates. We’ve seen a marked shift in where affiliates can effectively market programs, going from the traditional ‘plug and pray’ automated feeds, which can’t keep up with the tubes’ sheer volume, more now toward manual social media posting of photos, short trailers and animated gifs on such venues as Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest and the like. This sort of content is also useful for affiliates that have re-invented the blogosphere and have found ways to get quality traffic to their sites from other bloggers and their social media feeds.”

“Since day one of the affiliate model, programs have reached out to small, novice affiliates to provide them with the content and tools to develop marketing campaigns,” Rowntree continued. “At this point in time, things have very much changed. There are far fewer venues for folks new to the affiliate market to gain traction in traffic and send visitors for revshare or PPS programs. Google has pretty much shut out most opportunities for affiliate blogs, lists, and other free sites as they penalize ‘links to a known affiliate program’ in a massive way. The same goes for Bing, and most other sources of search traffic that affiliates traditionally used. On top of that, most major tubes will not allow for any affiliate uploads, as most programs are already Studio Content Partners, effectively cutting legal uploaders out of the process. However, I am always open to talking to folks entering the industry, and veterans that have an interesting idea of how to push their traffic through our program for payment. The affiliate program model is certainly not dead; however, it has changed quite a bit.”

Save the Whales

12clicks may have been the first person to suggest the standard affiliate model was nearing an end. From his point of view the most serious wounds are the self-inflicted ones. “In my opinion, affiliates pushed us to where we are today,” 12clicks said. “Back in 1998, you didn't bother programs and ask for anything but banners. You bought your own content and fended for yourself. Learning to drive traffic on your own, but most of it was teaser, with the promise of the payoff inside a members area. Then TGPs (who were merely jumped-up affiliates) started demanding better and better content—and the idea of giving it away for free was born. At the same time, owning a program became easier and everyone and his brother had one. This created the race for gathering affiliates, further eroding the model by causing many to overpay for joins while giving more away for free. Suddenly, affiliates thought they were in control and made ridiculous demands. The end game (for now) are the tubes, where you're giving EVERYTHING away. It doesn't take affiliates to give things away; programs can do it themselves. Bye-bye, affiliates. You've cut your own throats. And frankly, outside of the whales we deal with that are more like partners, good riddance.”

Affiliate programs are always looking for more sales, and professional affiliates who are generating a good amount of sales do still get a lot of leeway. Program owners also still go the extra mile to assist the ones they know have potential, by looking at their ratios and engaging in private talks with those who give suggestions or create things that help a program prosper. However, that also leaves a large and growing segment of webmaster society that is quickly becoming disenfranchised because the cost of servicing their needs is accelerating while the revenue they generate in return is dwindling. According to many program owners contacted to participate in this article, the “two sale per month crowd” is dying off, and they are accelerating their own demise by intentionally pissing off the shrinking number of program owners who are still willing to work with them today.

‘Porngate’ Brings Out the Worst in Pennsylvania Judiciary

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

LOS ANGELES—Porn continues to bring out the worst in Pennsylvania public officials, including its most esteemed jurists. Friday brought a new low in the porn scandal that has rocked not only Pennsylvania’s race for governor but the very foundation of the state’s judiciary, its Supreme Court, which is being described as "in meltdown” following the initial revelation that one of its justices was an active participant in “porngate.” Indeed, things seems to be getting exponentially worse on a daily basis, as what began as a public bloodletting between feuding state officials that ensnared a number of state bureacrats (forcing some to quit/retire) has now deteriorated to the point where members of the high court are questioning its continued viability as a trusted institution.

ADVERTISEMENT


As dramatic as the week has been, yesterday took “Porngate” to new lows. As the Philadelphia Inquirer reported yesterday, “A skirmish between two rival Pennsylvania Supreme Court justices over pornographic e-mails erupted Friday into a full-court brawl, with a third justice stopping just short of lobbing blackmail accusations, and other colleagues fretting that the fighting had begun to erode the public's confidence in the bench.”

Perhaps the good news is that porn has helped rip the façade off a Supreme Court seemingly rotting from the inside, with Justices more likely to engage in backstabbing their colleagues on the bench than working with them in an atmosphere of respectful collegiality. "Fuck that" seems to be the court’s motto, along with a presiding ethic that says that shared values and mutual respect are for pussies.

But it also seems that the façade that porn has helped destroy was really only that to outsiders. To the local media, and certainly to the state’s political and judicial elite, this scandal, however one views it, is just the latest chapter in a long narrative of judicial missteps. As the Inquirer was forced to note, “Outsiders hardly knew what to make of the messy display from a court that has become uncomfortably used to public airing of its private business. It was only last year when Joan Orie Melvin was convicted and booted from the bench for using legislative and judicial staff to work on her Supreme Court campaign.”

That sense of familiarity may now have morphed into one of inevitability and resignation. As one local educator, Bruce Ledewitz, a law professor at Duquesne University, put it, "I have to teach my students respect for the institution of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. They make it difficult. The people of Pennsylvania are very likely to look at this, throw up their hands, and say, 'It's not fixable.'”

That may be, but hopefully they won't blame porn for this painful debacle. That would be like blaming the messenger, only in this case porn has been used as a patsy of sorts, a tool used to shame and destroy a variety of rivals. In that sense, porn, rather than being an active participant, is more like an innocent bystander in the public evisceration of careers and maybe even the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

There’s No Good Porn for Women? Seriously?

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

There's No Good Porn for Women? Seriously?

LOS ANGELES—The sillist post was just published on HuffPo titled, “Seriously, Why is There No Good Porn For Women?” It’s written by someone named Nikki Gloudeman, who is editor of a site called Ravishly.com. She looks young from her picture, a millennial, which may explain her utterly vacuous—nay, fatuous!— argument that there is no good porn for women. This complaint in a world in which there is someone making every conceivable type of porn for every conceivable type of demographic, whether it is recognizable as human or not?

ADVERTISEMENT


But Gloudeman, who claims to have “tried to enjoy porn,” complains, “As women, we've essentially been given two options: plotless porn with women who are hard to relate to and don't get treated very well, or thoughtful, sexy movies devoid of actual sex.”

It’s not like she hasn’t tried. “Once, in my single days,” she writes, “I spent no fewer than three straight hours scouring for titillating female-friendly porn online, until it became something of a noble quest, like journeying through the Arabian Desert in search of the Cave of Wonders.”

She doesn’t say how or where exactly she looked for porn, or what sort of search terms she used, or sites she visited, but her frustration has finally forced her to inquire, “What I don't understand is why no one is making full-length, big-budget films that show graphic sex. While watching Witness the other night, starring a young Harrison Ford as a cop on the lam who ends up falling in love with an Amish woman, I ended up deeply disappointed that the central romance built up to nothing more than a passionate kiss/hug and one forbidden glance at a naked body.

“I mean, come on: jaded male cop, chaste Amish girl? It has ‘porn’ written all over it,” she continued. “But it seems the fact that it also involved intelligent characterization and a compelling narrative precluded it from showing actual sex. In the world of film, sex and even just a whiff of intelligence are mutually exclusive entities.”

One has to admit that the specter of a grown woman at the end of her porn rope is not a pretty sight, and one would normally drop everything to assist her in her admirable quest to find what she’s looking for, but the fact that Gloudeman lives in a digital bubble that has left her ignorant of the fact that full-length, big-budget films that show graphic sex have been made and are still being made boggles the mind and makes empathy more difficult.

One also wonders if perhaps Gloudeman, rather than complain so publicly, might want to check out … oh, maybe the Wicked Passions like of movies made by Stormy Daniels, a woman, who has spent the last few years focusing her directorial attention on the romance genre—complete with actual sex! (Read more about Daniels and 29 other women in the adult biz in this AVN article.)

There are other examples she could look into, to be sure. (Sssh.com also comes to mind.) But the point’s the same: rather than complain, she might actually find some satisfaction.

Oh, and by the way, it's not like any of this is new territory for women looking for porn for women or for women making porn for women looking for porn for women, As but one example, in 2006, AVN published a short story about Sweden's Erika Lust developing movies for women. She's hardly alone. Just saying...

Stormy Daniels Wraps a ‘Pretty Dangerous’ Adventure for Wicked

Stormy Daniels Wraps a 'Pretty Dangerous' Adventure for Wicked

Posted Oct 17th, 2014 04:58 PM

LOS ANGELES—Wicked Pictures has announced that award-winning filmmaker, screenwriter and contract star Stormy Daniels has wrapped her most ambitious project of 2014, the female-driven adult adventure Pretty Dangerous. Starring Daniels, fellow Wicked Girl Asa Akira, Allie Haze and Anikka Albrite, the stunt-packed action film lensed for six days on locations in and around the Southern California coast.

In recent years, Daniels has focused her directorial attentions in the genres of romance (for the award-winning Wicked Passions line) and erotic comedy. Pretty Dangerous marks a shift for Daniels back to the blockbuster territory she explored so successfully in such mega-productions as Operation Desert Stormy and Operation Tropical Stormy.

Daniels expressed satisfaction with her latest production. “Pretty Dangerous was an amazing experience,” she said. “The movie was really big, and it turned out great. Everyone did their own stunts, including Allie Haze, who learned how to jump waves in a speedboat. Anikka did her own scuba diving and Asa rappelled from ceilings upside down!"

The action sequences were complex and plentiful, to be sure, but Stormy's greatest challenge was her shooting schedule. "I've been planning this movie for six months and originally planned to film in Florida,” she explained. “We moved the production to California just a few weeks ago, but still found incredible places to film during the six-day shoot, including yachts, mansions and a great mountain location. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure things went well. Jack Vegas even came to my home in Texas to choreograph the fight sequences and Mark Nicholson contributed great underwater photography."

Daniels is also quick to praise her supporting cast. "Stephen St. Croix's comic timing definitely gets to shine in this movie, but everyone brought their A-game, really,” she said. “Brendon Miller learned to speak with a Russian accent for his role, and Chanel Preston, Seth Gamble and Jack Vegas were great. Mick Blue did a fine job in his role, in addition to doing an excellent anal scene with Anikka."

Asa more than shared her director’s enthusiasm. "Shooting for Stormy is always a thrill, and this movie was no different, although this production was definitely bigger,” she said. “It was such a pleasure to work alongside great talents like Allie, Anikka and Chanel."

About the movie's intricate stunt sequences, Akira confided, "The Pretty Dangerous shoot is something I'm pretty proud of surviving—I think I spent 50 percent of it scared out of my mind. Stormy had me hanging upside down from a ceiling at one point, and then the next day she had me in a speedboat going a million miles an hour Growing up as a city girl, that's something I've definitely never done before. Ultimately, she rewarded me with the chance to fuck Seth Gamble and Chanel Preston, so I'd say we're even. I can't wait to see the final product!"

Co-star Allie Haze, who is equally proud of the shoot’s blend of intricate stunts and explosive sex, added, "It was an honor to finally be a part of a big action movie and, on top of that, fulfill my sexual fantasy of working with Stormy Daniels. The cast was amazing, the script was great, and we did all our own stunts! Wicked fans definitely won't want to miss this one!

Pretty Dangerous is scheduled for release in 2015. For more information, visit Wicked.com.
