According to organizers of the 25th Eurowebtainment Majorca, which took place May 21-24, the event exceeded expectations on various fronts. This European business meeting for interactive entertainment across the internet, telecommunications and SAT/WEB TV was held once again at the luxury resort Melia de Mar.

“Biz and Fun in the Sun” is the motto of Eurowebtainment Majorca, which certainly proved apropos. Good weather, theme parties and sexy shows every evening, and a wide range of infotainment were offered to participants in combination with various networking events.

Numerous company representatives from all over the world took part at this international business event to inform themselves about the latest news and the current market situation.

Guests were welcomed by the Eurowebtainment hostesses at the airport and transported to the hotel via the free airport bus shuttle service, sponsored by Diagonal Inkasso.

At the Meet & Eat Welcome get2gether, sponsored by ICM Registry/.XXX, Eurowebtainment members got in the mood with free tapas, welcome drinks and blue mojitos while moderators Thommy Oliver and Sven Hansing made introductions for partners. Business people used the gathering to make strong first impressions and then deepened their conversations during the welcome party, sponsored by CoolMobile.

Another attraction was the Mix & Meet Market, taking place on the first business day. At the hotel’s outdoor facilities, companies had the opportunity to present themselves as well as their products in an ambience similar to a farmers’ market.

During the entire event the atmosphere was fun and relaxed. Plenty of side events took place: for example, a golf challenge sponsored by Ecardon and the famous CashDorado boat trip.

Evenings were peppered with numerous theme parties with free buffets, free drinks and sexy entertainment. The pool party, sponsored by CashDorado, started directly after the Mix & Meet Market. The grand finale of Eurowebtainment took place at Tito’s, Majorca’s most famous club; sponsored by Affil4You, it included the Miss Eurowebtainment competition, a drawing for an IPad and dance shows.

In addition to the parties and networking, the event saw participation from new international companies. And feedback from attendees has left organizers satisfied that the 25th Eurowebtainment in Majorca was one of the best in its more than a dozen years of history.

WSJ Bashes Trannies, Wendy Summers & Mia Isabella Respond

WSJ Bashes Trannies, Wendy Summers & Mia Isabella Respond

CYBERSPACE—The Wall Street Journal usually screws up when its editorial page writers attempt to make a point about sex, especially since the venerable financial newspaper was bought by NewsCorp's Rupert Murdoch, but an article published June 12 by gay-bashing psychiatrist Dr. Paul McHugh, titled "Transgender Surgery Isn't the Solution," set a lot of people's blood boiling—and drew impassioned responses from such adult luminaries as Wendy Summers and Mia Isabella.

ADVERTISEMENT


After noting that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services ruled that Medicare can pay for sex-reassignment surgeries for the elderly, that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said he was "open" to transgenders serving in the military, and that Time magazine had run a cover story deeming transgender rights to be "America's next civil rights frontier," McHugh went on to state, "policy makers and the media are doing no favors either to the public or the transgendered by treating their confusions as a right in need of defending rather than as a mental disorder that deserves understanding, treatment and prevention."

McHugh, a "University Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry" at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and former member of the United State Conference of Catholic Bishops' National Review Board—which should give anyone with a sane attitude about sex a few ideas about where this guy is coming from—believes that transgenders are simply deluded, confused and suffering from "a mental disorder that deserves understanding, treatment and prevention."

He compares transgenderism to "body dysmorphic disorder," an  "often socially crippling condition, the individual is consumed by the assumption 'I'm ugly,'" as well as "anorexia nervosa patients," and dismisses the idea, which he claims transgenders hold, that "one's feeling of 'gender' is a conscious, subjective sense that, being in one's mind, cannot be questioned by others." Moreover, he claims that the recently (wrongly) convicted Chelsea Manning, formerly Pvt. Bradley Manning, wants to undergo sexual reassignment surgery because, "Facing long sentences and the rigors of a men's prison, they have an obvious motive for wanting to change their sex and hence their prison."

McHugh goes on to claim that ten years after surgery, "the transgendered began to experience increasing mental difficulties," and "Most shockingly, their suicide mortality rose almost 20-fold above the comparable nontransgender population."

"At the heart of the problem is confusion over the nature of the transgendered," McHugh concludes. "'Sex change' is biologically impossible. People who undergo sex-reassignment surgery do not change from men to women or vice versa. Rather, they become feminized men or masculinized women. Claiming that this is civil-rights matter and encouraging surgical intervention is in reality to collaborate with and promote a mental disorder."

Fortunately, "those championing transgender equality," as McHugh refers to transgender rights activists in his article, have risen to the challenge, and the internet now has about a dozen refutations of McHugh by both transgenders, their supporters and sexual freedom activists of all stripes.

"Today it’s acknowledged that 1 in 1,000 births, a child is born with an intersex condition—their genitals are 'indeterminate'," noted TG actress Wendy Summers, a "data analyst, an adult entertainer and a philosopher." "Not quite a penis and not quite a vagina and usually it comes with a host of other medical issues. I raise this not to equate transsexuality to intersexuality—they are distinct conditions—but rather to raise the point that nature itself doesn’t seem to want to draw a perfectly clean line between the genders. How often do secondary sexual characteristics of women appear in men and vice versa? Binary gender is not biological fact, but rather a fact of social construct."

In other words, one's physical gender characteristics are most definitely not the whole story when it comes to one's personal perception of his/her (the pronouns don't exist for more choices) own gender—a reality that McHugh firmly rejects.

"On Dr. McHugh’s second point: that gender reassignment 'can lead to grim psychological outcomes'," Summers continues. "Let’s be clear: trans-folks who commit suicide after Gender Reassignment Surgery (GRS) aren't doing it because they wished they still had their birth genitals. GRS may help some transsexuals to find peace with their bodies, but it doesn’t help them find a job or overcome the prejudices of those around them. There’s a reason that the medical consensus is to provide GRS—it’s the best treatment option available."

McHugh had claimed that, "When children who reported transgender feelings were tracked without medical or surgical treatment at both Vanderbilt University and London's Portman Clinic, [70-80 percent] of them spontaneously lost those feelings"—a stance that sounds suspiciously like the excuse for why all explicit discussions and images of sex must be suppressed by mainstream society: "Think of the children!" as Summers calls it.

"He [McHugh] insinuates the transgender rights movement has scalpels at the ready and we’re prepared to neuter the children of tomorrow," Summers responds. "I cannot think of a credible transgender rights advocate who would suggest any sort of irreversible treatment for children. What is recommended is a safe, nurturing environment where the child can explore and discover who they are so when they are old enough they can make their own decisions regarding surgeries. ... The stress we face isn’t because we’re deficient, but rather because society is deficient."

A case in point: Just today, the American Family Association's "news" site published an article regarding a transgendered woman employee of "Christian corporation" Hobby Lobby who filed a discrimination claim with the Illinois Department of Human Rights because her employer refused to permit her to use the women's rest room—ostensibly because she still has a penis. It's such recalcitrance in the face of the employee's changed gender status that fuels activism among society's least-accepted gender.

Therefore, the answer isn't "conversion therapy," as McHugh advocates; it's a fundamental change in the way "polite society" looks at sex and all of the issues related to it.

"Imagine a world without gender," Summers asks. "Where a person is measured by the merits of their actions, the brilliance of their ideas and the compassion in their heart. In such a world, the concept of transsexuality wouldn’t exist—we’d simply beM… just like every other human being. But since we built our world’s social order with the binary gender concept ingrained throughout our institutions, you’ll need to understand that those of us who don’t fit neatly in those boxes are going to have a hard time making the system work smoothly. It’s stressful when you can be fired for simply being who you are, lonely when family members spew hate because you are different, and dangerous when folks advocate violence against you."

Well said, Ms. Summers!

Mia Isabella had similar reactions.

"Referring to true identified transgendered individuals as confused or under the wrong 'assumption' of their core selves is a blatant showcase of how so many look at the community as less than human beings...," Isabella writes. "[F]or those who are living their adult lives bold enough to be who they are knowing the backlash and limitations they must fight through every day based off their physical appearance that [McHugh's philosophy] is clearly betraying the affected person's sense of self, confidence, and inner emotional struggles surgery in various forms can absolutely have positive life changing effects where it concerns something as simple as depression and as complex as body dysmorphic disorder."

 After noting that a UCLA assistant professor of hers, whom Isabella considers a "friend and mentor," "absolutely believed that true transsexual individuals did in fact contain the core essentials chemically and hormonally found in the opposite sex or identified gender and that conservative surgical changes after puberty [were] necessary in transitioning socially into adulthood, [t]he fact remains that different types of research done by different researchers will get different results is true when researchers have different agendas."

"Trans Activism at this stage is not just being led by those in political power but now by real trans people making their voices heard telling their stories that no person outside of the community can possibly represent without true life experiences. ... There have been major advancements in the LGBT community in the last decade yet the trans community itself has been constantly left out of the loop where specific details such as the basic human rights to use the restroom of a said person's identifying gender or obtaining employment without discrimination or laws that protect us from violent acts were before not taken into consideration. The time is NOW!" Isabella concludes.

No Plans for Next Weekend? How About XXX Nights at Cinefamily?

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

July 25-27 will be a porn aficionado's delight—and don't forget about August 12, either!

No Plans for Next Weekend? How About XXX Nights at Cinefamily?

LOS ANGELES—The owners of Cinefamily, who several years ago took over what used to be a Hollywood insider "guilty pleasure" when it was still called the Silent Movie Theater on North Fairfax Avenue, have certainly come a long way in terms of the fare they're willing to offer to the public—and their latest and most interesting attention-getter has got to be the three-night program coming next weekend, part of which will feature the classic XXX films Café Flesh and Nightdreams.

ADVERTISEMENT


Café Flesh was directed by "Rinse Dream," better known to the mainstream world as Stephen Sayadian after he crossed over and became production designer for the first season of the long-running detective show Silk Stalkings. Among Sayadian's other popular XXX works were Volumes 2 and 3 of Nightdreams, two volumes of Party Doll A Go-Go! and two volumes of Untamed Cowgirls of the Wild West—all of which developed a cult following for their psychedelic/New Age stories and production design.

Café Flesh (1982), which AVN reviewer I.L. Slifkin described as "[h]aunting, frightening and sexually unsettling," takes place in a post-apocalyptic future where nearly the entire population of the planet is unable to have sex, and who depend on the 1 percent who can still get it up (including early stars Pia Snow and Marie Sharp) to entertain them with live sex shows at (where else?) Café Flesh.

In Nightdreams (1981), directed by F.X. Pope, Dorothy LeMay, one of that era's most popular stars, is the subject of an experiment conducted by scientists Jennifer West and Andy Nichols to create and monitor Dorothy's erotic dreams—and boy, does she have a bunch of them! Also in the cast were top performers Loni Sanders, Danielle Martin (better known simply as "Danielle"), Kevin James and Ken Starbuck—and the soundtrack was created and performed by top '80s band Wall of Voodoo!

Perhaps best of all, those attending the showing of Café Flesh on July 26 will have the opportunity to hear director Sayadian and his co-writer Jerry Stahl discuss the film, their other work, and take audience questions.

Stephen Sayadian

In addition to that XXX double bill, jaded porn watchers probably also won't want to miss what Cinefamily's offering the previous night, July 25: Sexperiments: A Collection of Turned-On Shorts.

"As constraints on representing sexuality were loosened for mainstream films starting in the late ’60s (a la Midnight Cowboy, A Clockwork Orange), so were the shackles around experimental artists, who were finally freed to fearlessly explore and blow minds with alternate views on the love act (or 'amourous congress', as they used to say in olden times)," the blurb on the Cinefamily website states. "The filmmakers selected for tonight’s shorts compilation—including luminaries like Gunvor Nelson, Constance Beeson, Paul Sherits, and animators like Vince Collins—employed a myriad of styles, from strobic overstimulation (Peace Mandala) and haunting meditations on the human form (The Operation), to freaked-out comics of morphing genitalia (Desire Pie). Tonight’s centerpiece film even comes complete with a live score! Filmmaker Barbara Rubin was a 20-year-old denzien of Warhol’s Factory, and along with being credited as discovering the Velvet Underground, she also made Christmas On Earth, in which participants in the experiment donned tribal body paint as they proceeded to explore each other every which way but loose. The film’s 'screenings' were often at friends' apartments, with musical accompaniment ranging from turning the radio dial to the Velvets playing live. We're pleased to announce Portland, OR’s prolific White Rainbow will be supplying tonight’s accompanying soundscape to this carnal free-for-all of fingerpainting and fingerbanging."

For trailers depicting each of the shows described above and/or to purchase tickets to the events, click here.

Oh... and by the way, a further look at future Cinefamily offerings includes the announcement that on August 12, the theater will be hosting "Show & Tell w/ Larry Flynt." There's no description available of that show yet, but tickets can be purchased here.

"Cinefamily at the Silent Movie Theater" is located at 611 North Fairfax Ave., Los Angeles 90036.

UK Begins World’s First Experiment in Public Wi-Fi Censorship

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

UK Begins World's First Experiment in Public Wi-Fi Censorship

UNITED KINGDOM—The United Kingdom has begun what The Mirror is calling "the world’s first scheme to stop hardcore porn being accessed in public wi-fi areas," which the paper also takes credit for instigating, following "a Mirror investigation [that] revealed a quarter of public networks allowed people to view explicit images and videos."

ADVERTISEMENT


More specifically, the article adds, "In November, The Mirror tested 129 free Wi-Fi hotspots around the country and found 32 of them did not block access to pornhub.com, a website where thousands of hardcore pornographic videos can be viewed for free."

As AVN reported at the time, The Mirror survey found that "Places where children could access the site through free Wi-Fi included Waterstones bookshops in Birmingham and Southampton, The Cardiff Story museum, the play area at the At-Bristol Science Centre, the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, Coffee Republic and Esquires Coffee House in Doncaster and the Odeon cinema at the Liverpool One shopping centre."

According to today's article, those findings led to the formulation of the idea for the current "Friendly Wi-Fi" hotspots "by the "Registered Digital Institute (RDI) who were approached 12 months ago following David Cameron’s 2013 NSPCC speech on online safety.

"Then," continues the article, "the Prime Minister called for an industry-recognized and trusted symbol, which businesses could display to show customers that their public Wi-Fi is properly filtered."

As a result, beginning today, "Parents who see a 'Friendly Wi-Fi' sign in cafes, restaurants, hotels and museums will know their children cannot access explicit content," reported The Mirror, which proudly listed Tesco, Starbucks and Samsung as having signed up for the "scheme."

Communications Minister Ed Vaizey expressed his pleasure with the launch of the censored Wi-Fi, remarking, “The ‘Friendly WiFi’ logo will make clear to parents which cafes, restaurants and other businesses have internet access that is safe for their children to use.

“It will help these firms ensure that families feel comfortable and make it clear to parents they are choosing a safe online environment," he added.

Now, as the rollout proceeds, The Mirror can continue its campaign of shame by outing public places that fail to implement the new program, though it's doubtful the paper will expend similar resources looking into why the government's "overzealous" porn filters are blocking 20 percent of all websites. But no surprise there. From its consistent rhetoric, it would appear the paper's editors believe that what the kids might see online will surely hurt them, but what they don't (or are unable to) see will not. Ignorance, in that sense, is a Brit's form of bliss.

In related news, Prime Minister David Cameron's former senior advisor on internet porn filters, Patrick Rock, appeared in crown court earlier this month, "charged with three counts of making indecent photographs of children and one count of possessing indecent images of children," according to RT. "The offences, said to have been committed last summer in the US, relate to more than 60 images, all described as category C—the lowest on the scale."

In other words, he served in an official government capacity in his own country to implement nationwide censorship of legal content, but flew to the colonies to engage in the production of "indecent photographs of children." Nice.

Rock was released on bail and will return to court in early October. The article added, "The offence of making indecent images of children carries a maximum sentence of 10 years’ imprisonment under Section 1 of the Protection of Children Act 1978. Possessing child abuse images has a statutory maximum of five years’ imprisonment under Section 160 of the Criminal Justice Act 1988."

Dario Beck Signs Exclusive Agreement with Falcon/Raging Stallion

Star’s first scene from 'Gran Vista' world premieres on RagingStallion.com tomorrow

Dario Beck Signs Exclusive Agreement with Falcon/Raging Stallion

Posted Jul 17th, 2014 05:35 PM

SAN FRANCISCO—San Francisco-based Falcon & Raging Stallion Studios announced they have inked an agreement with Dario Beck to appear exclusively in releases from the gay adult giant. Beck’s first scene for the studio also stars Abraham Al Malek in his Raging Stallion debut directed by Bruno Bond. They meet for a steamy poolside rendezvous at a vacation home near Madrid, Spain, and Al Malek delivers his huge endowment deep in Beck’s willing, eager and hairy ass. The scene debuts as a World Premiere on RagingStallion.com tomorrow, July 18.

Beck is an olive-skinned Spanish stud with good looks and a hot set of lips. His toned, athletic body, dusted with the perfect amount of hair, provides an amazing frame to feature his thick, uncut, eight inches and remarkable ass.

Beck rose to stardom as a TitanMen Exclusive, and Falcon & Raging Stallion Studios President Chris Ward contacted Titan expressing interest in working with Beck prior to his contract expiration. Upon being notified that Beck was available, Ward immediately contacted him and arranged for him to appear in two movies Raging Stallion was shooting in Spain, Steve Cruz’s The Tourist and Bruno Bond’s Gran Vista. While on location, a deal was struck to secure Dario Beck as the next Falcon & Raging Stallion exclusive.

”It’s been a great pleasure working with Dario over the past few years; he is truly one of the most beautiful men in the world,” said Keith Webb, VP TitanMen. ”We are also very pleased that he will be working with two of the world’s most iconic brands, Falcon and Raging Stallion. A man of his caliber needs to continue working with only the very best in the industry.”

 “From the second I laid eyes on a photo of Dario Beck, I have wanted him to appear in Falcon & Raging Stallion products. His work with the exceptional team at TitanMen is spectacular,” stated Ward. “I’m elated that the timing worked out and that Dario was excited about transitioning from a TitanMen exclusive to working solely with Falcon and Raging Stallion. Dario Beck is one of a kind and I’m happy that he’s joined our A-Team list of guys.”

“I am really excited about becoming a Falcon exclusive, such an iconic studio that I always loved,” Beck commented. “The very first gay porn movie I ever watched was a Falcon movie. I remember that! It was a pleasure to shoot with Raging Stallion/Falcon in Madrid. It was a great and fun experience for sure. I can't wait to be back, shooting with them soon. I'd like to express my thanks to all the Falcon and Raging Stallion team, and of course to all the followers that keep putting a smile on my face with their tweets and Facebook comments. Love you all!"

Canadian Court Upholds Jules Jordan Piracy Award

Canadian Court Upholds Jules Jordan Piracy Award

Posted Jul 17th, 2014 05:22 PM

QUEBEC, Canada—In a stunning win in one of the adult industry's longest-running court cases, the Superior Court of Quebec ruled on Tuesday that Respondents Alain Elmaleh and his companies, 144942 Canada, Inc. and Leisure Time Video Canada, Inc. must pay Jules Jordan Video and its owner, Jules Jordan, CAD$2,555,020 (US$2,373,568) in damages stemming from Jordan's win in a video piracy case where the plantiffs included Evil Angel Productions and its owner, John Stagliano.

ADVERTISEMENT


That case, in which the official charges were copyright and trademark infringement, was tried before U.S. District Judge S. James Otero and nine jurors, with the jury originally coming back on August 10, 2007 with a verdict of over $17 million for all plaintiffs, an amount that was later substantially reduced  by Judge Otero. Following that verdict, the Evil Angel defendants settled with Elmaleh for an undisclosed sum, but Jordan continued to press his claim for the full amount awarded by the judge.

Elmaleh had appealed his loss, first to the U.S. Supreme Court, which declined to hear the case, and then to the Canadian judicial system, claiming among other things that the federal court system in California did not have jurisdiction to hear the case; that the verdict was "rendered in contravention of the fundamental principles of procedure," and that the outcome was "manifestly inconsistent with public order as understood in international relations." However, on Tuesday, July 15, the Superior Court of Quebec ruled in favor of Jordan on all of those issues, and allowed Jordan to implement enforcement of the jury's award as reduced by Judge Otero. The court also awarded Jordan interest on the full amount of the award dating from Judge Otero's final order in the case dated March 29, 2011 at the current "legal rate," as well as the costs to Jordan in fighting Elmaleh's petition.

One problem, though: The Canadian court rejected Jordan's petition to execute the judgment notwithstanding any further appeal by Elmaleh and his companies, since under Article 199 of Canada's Code of Civil Procedure, Jordan had not shown that his was a "case of exceptional urgency," or "any other reason deemed sufficient in particular where the fact of bringing the case to appeal is likely to cause serious or irreparable injury, for the whole or for part only of a judgment." So depending on what further legal actions Elmaleh decides to take, it may take Jordan a while longer to collect his due.

Jordan himself was not available for comment at press time, but an award of $2,373,568 plus interest and costs is certainly one of the largest verdicts ever awarded to an adult production company.

Android Ransomware Impersonates FBI Porn Warning

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

Android Ransomware Impersonates FBI Porn Warning

MALWARELAND—Security firm Lookout is warning about new Android malware targeting the United States that attempts to extort victims using an FBI warning delivered to their locked phones alleging that the device has been used to visit websites containing child pornography or other illegal content.

The warnings are fake, of course, but the ability of the malware to compromise the phone is not. The family of malware, called ScarePackage, is particularly malicious because, as explained yesterday by Meghan Kelly for Lookout, it "masquerades as well-known apps, such as Adobe Flash and a number of anti-virus applications, and pretends to scan your phone upon launch. After completing the fake scan it locks your phone. You can’t navigate away and if you try to reboot, the fake FBI message will be the first thing you see when the phone turns on."

ADVERTISEMENT


The ransom demand of $300 is not particularly onerous, and should in fact be a red flag to anyone that something non-governmental is going on, but the sophistication of the scheme, including its ability to fool people into providing it with administrator privileges (something that should be done with only the most trusted applications, and even then...), is what prompted Lookout to characterize the malware as "particularly concerning."

Elaborating on how it works, Kelly explains, "The malware does its best to be as intrusive as possible by blocking the victim’s normal device-use with the app. Using a Java TimerTask, which is set to run every 10 milliseconds, the application will kill any other running processes that the user interacts with that are not the malware itself or the phone’s settings application. The malware also uses an Android WakeLock to prevent the device from going to sleep.

"The malware makes it difficult to turn the phone off," she adds, "but should you be able to, a boot receiver class resumes ScarePakage’s takeover of your device immediately, shutting down all other processes that the user interacts with."

Likely the creation of "Russian or other Eastern European authors," ScarePackage is similar to ColdBrother, another evil piece of code that in addition to locking the phone and attempting to extort money via a threat from the FBI, can take "a photo using the front-facing camera, can answer and immediately drop phone calls, and has unused code that searches for banking applications on the device."

Lookout mentions that all of its users are protected from the ScarePackage threat, and further advises people to:

* Avoid awarding device administrator to applications unless you’re really sure of what they do.

* Only download applications from developers you know and trust.

* Download an applications such as Lookout, which can detect these threats before you ever open them.

Disgraced Chinese Official Stashed Porn Under Buddha Statue

Disgraced Chinese Official Stashed Porn Under Buddha Statue

CHINA—For thousands of years Chinese society has been a bastion of corruption, and modern times are no exception. In fact, things have reportedly gotten so bad that the central government in Beijing has launched a nationwide anti-corruption campaign intended to root out offenders in and out of government, no matter where they are.

As part of the crackdown, shanghaiist.com reports, "Three senior civil servants from Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region are the latest to see their careers crumble in the sweeping anti-corruption campaign launched by President Xi Jingping. Anti-corruption agents found that the officials were spending illicit funds on real estate and traveling on more than 80 occasions."

ADVERTISEMENT


But the news report also indicate that one of the officials felt compelled to hide the fact that he also liked to enjoy some adult entertainment from time to time, and that he picked what he probably thought would be a very safe place to store his "pornographic films."

Under Buddha.

But as told by Jennifer Hui for shanghaiist.com, the porn is just the tip of the problem iceberg for this official. After noting the allegation levied against fellow officials, she continues, "Wu Zhizhong, the former vice secretary-general of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, had likewise dabbled in his fair share of real estate purchases. It's reported that Wu owned 33 properties in China and one in Canada. According to China News, adding all of his door keys together 'could fill up an entire bag'.

"In Wu’s storage rooms in Beijing and Hohhot," she adds, "there were reportedly 2,000 bundles of cash notes, bars of gold and silver, expensive paintings and watches.

"To top it off," she concludes, "Wu had transformed a room into a place of Buddhist worship, where he had his daily sutra study. It was in the same room that he was found to have stored 100 pornographic films beneath a Buddha shrine, according to reports."

The article even comes with a photo of what we presume is the actual Buddha used by Wu, whose position and alleged wealth apparently did nothing to mitigate his profound (and understandable) paranoia about watching adult entertainment and the public shaming that would inevitably be visited upon him if anyone dared look under the Buddha!

So… What’s Top Director B. Skow Doing These Days?

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

PORN VALLEY NORTH—AVN caught up with top director B. Skow on the set of his latest feature, Temptation, which features Girlfriends Films contract star Prinzzess as a young Amish adult undergoing her "Rumspringa" in a house full of lesbians, and asked him what else he's currently got in the works, all of which will be releasing under his Skow for Girlfriends Films imprint.

"The movie that I'm working on and editing right now is a Jessie Andrews thing, Gardener," Skow told us. "It's about a girl who's kidnapped at a young age and kept confined until she was an adult, and about a guy who's obsessed with growing flowers and he was a mental patient; he took it to a limit where he wanted to grow this girl and when she was of age, he wanted to impregnate her and make a perfect baby. And it's a really odd sort of thing. It's based on the story of the girl from Northern California, but I didn't want to criticize that person or be rude to that girl, what she went through, so it's totally imaginary. It's me and David [Stanley, Skow's frequent scripter] going to the ends of my imagination and, you know, we just took the idea of someone doing that and went into their head and tried to make it really insane, and make the sex work for itself.

"Kurt Lockwood plays the insane guy; he's playing a really different character than you've ever seen him," Skow continued. "It's fun and it's different, and the cast is amazing. Jessie Andrews was good—good in a way where, like, she didn't have a ton of dialog, and you see those movies from Hollywood that don't have a ton of dialog, but she's a great face actor; she's really artistic. She was amazing to work with; she had a great eye for things, and she was really into it, so it was fun. It also had all the girls I like to use right now. A.J. Applegate and Karla Kush both gave really good performances. The best of the best right now are in that movie."

Skow and Stanley have one of the best working relationships in the business. Both used to direct for Vivid Entertainment, and while Stanley has moved on to other opportunities in the Midwest and Skow is about to re-up his contract with Girlfriends for a third year, he told us how he works with Stanley to come up with the movies that won Skow this year's AVN award for Best New Line, not to mention last year's Best New Production Company award for the short-lived Skow Digital.

"I think our process has been, for the boy/girl stuff, a lot of times I'll have a topic or I'll get into something, and then we'll talk it out, we'll sit on the phone for an hour or so, and we both think a lot alike, and it's weird," Skow explained. "It's almost like, I'll call him up and tell him, 'I just saw a one-legged deer,' and he'll be right along with it: 'Oh, yeah! And we could GoPro that limb and follow it—" and no matter what we say to each other, whatever it is, we both kind of get it and are able to figure each other out. David is just amazing at putting words in people's mouths, like in a script, and we go back and forth, and once it's done, I'll tinker with it some.

"The process of writing and the process of directing are different, because as a director, I'm thinking of where it's going to be, who's in it, why they should work together, and the whole process of putting it together is more of the directing/producing process, like figuring out your budget," he added. "I'll get a script back from David and I'll love reading it because I'll have a story idea, and he'll write a script around it that's so out there and it's great—almost impossible to shoot, but it is awesome, it's amazing to read, and it sparks so much creativity! Like he'll have a script where a girl's running down the street nude and getting shotgunned down, and I'll love it; he has such an amazing imagination, but it's like, 'Well, we can't get a permit for that; we're hiding in a house, so here's what we're going to do: We'll have to use a window'; whatever. That's the thing about adult stuff: You have this much money and it's funny because it makes you have to be as creative as possible. But it's fun; I like that feeling."

Of course, one big piece of news that was recently reported was Skow's hiring rising star Lilly Evans to do her first boy/girl scene, for Skow's popular series Beautiful New Faces, which wrapped shooting about 10 days ago.

"I used to do something called Brand New Faces, where I'd get girls that never even were nude anywhere before—but I'd find them and I'd introduce them," he noted. "I'd make sure they really wanted to do a scene and really wanted to be in the industry, and it was the first time they were on camera. It was a true thing. Out of I don't know how many girls we shot—hundreds—there were only maybe 20 that were girls that we found out later had done other stuff or the agents lied about where they got them from, but the majority of it was real; we really researched it and it was a cool idea.

"But the problem was the girls I could never get because they weren't brand new. You had to kind of take any girl because it was her first time; it was more about that. Beautiful New Faces is totally different. It's the same kind of fun, interesting kind of interview thing, but the series is about girls I think that are going to all be the next box cover girls, you know, and I pick four of them for each volume. I get them within months of them getting into the industry; you know, like girls that come in and you shoot them and it's like you walk off saying 'Wow!' So I've shot them all before I did these movies, and I got to see how they work, I got to see them on set, I got to see how they act, and then I shoot them for this. It's fun; they get to pick their partners; I ask them who they want to work with; I give them an improv script without notice so I get to see how good of an actor they are, what they can improv, and then I interview them. It's a fun thing."

One of Skow's movies that's selling like gangbusters is the recently-released Proud Parents, which garnered an AVN Editor's Choice, at least in part because it's a story inspired by the inner workings of the adult industry itself.

"I really liked that movie—in fact, I loved it!" he exclaimed. "That was something I had thought about for so long, and I wanted to somehow take my experience and David Stanley's experience—we both have sort of the same view of what we do and we have the same observations of this industry, so it was so much fun coming up with ideas and him really adding things and nailing it—you know, just things that people in the industry would know and people outside would like to know. It's fun to watch, and there's a lot of history of porn in it. I'm really proud of it; you might say I'm a 'proud parent.' It is a cool movie."

But as good as that was, Skow's most nominated movie to date has been Daddy's Girls—and Skow told us that there'll soon be a pair of sequels in the works.

"I'm doing Daddy's Girls 2, and I'll probably have that ready in time for the AVN nominations," he said. "I can't talk about what the plot is, but I'll be shooting 2 and 3 together. The original script was like a hundred-something pages, and we broke it down into three parts. The ending is going to be really amazing, because it's going to sort of break every rule you're not supposed to break, and in the end, everything will be revealed, but nothing will really cross the line, ever."

Skow is still smarting from some of the criticism of Daddy's Girls, since it appears to condone incest, still a major taboo in American society—but in fact, none of the sexual relationships depicted in the movie are between blood relatives.

"You know, it's funny, because now, everything is about incest, but Daddy's Girls wasn't really about that," he declared. "It was about two best friends who have sex with each other's daughter, so it wasn't incest, but a lot of people who didn't see it were like, 'Ohmigod, an incest movie!' But there's no incest in it. But the movie sold incredibly. I mean, the movie has built a fan base. [Girlfriends president] Moose sold more Daddy's Girls last month than probably most of the DVDs going out the door at other companies. It's amazing what he's done. The first year I was with Girlfriends was kind of tough, and then all of a sudden, my fan base took off, and people were buying it like crazy off Girlfriends' website. We're selling a lot of DVDs, and it's amazing to sell so many DVDs these days."

It's that sort of success that has restored Skow's faith in adult filmmaking.

"I love making the movies I make now; they're so much fun, and it's so much fun to sit down and come up with crazy stuff and put stories together," he said. "It's so much more satisfying, and even the gonzo that we're doing now, like Beautiful New Faces, is stuff I've always wanted to do, stuff I always thought 'This should be great' but I never did anything with it; it was just in my head, and now I'm able to do it."

Pleasurable Female Condoms On the Drawing Board

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

Bill Gates philanthropy money makes the development of a condom for women that they actually want to use that much closer to reality.

Pleasurable Female Condoms On the Drawing Board

LOS ANGELES—Yesterday, Bloomberg News took a substantial look at a project underway by sexual health researcher Debby Herbenick and product developer Frank Sadlo to create a female condom that is not only effective but pleasurable to use. A sexual health scientist at Indiana University, Herbenick and Sadlo have only been working on the female condom for less than a year, but last month's announcement that they were one of 11 condom projects chosen by billionaire Bill Gates’ philanthropic foundation to receive $1.1 million in exploratory grants gave the project a serious shot in the arm.

ADVERTISEMENT


"The aim," explain Natasha Khan and Ketaki Gokhale for Bloomberg, "is to improve on earlier female condoms with a product that’s easy to use and enjoyable to help protect women, who are disproportionally affected by sexually transmitted infections in developing countries."

Herbenick adds, “We hope that women can feel empowered. Female condoms gives women a choice to say: ‘Okay, if you don’t want to wear one, I will.’”

The prototype of the condom under development "will be made with typical male condom material—probably latex—but will be shaped and sized to better fit the vaginal anatomy," report Kahn and Gokhale. "It will likely come in foil packaging much like male ones, she said. Instead of gripping the penis, though, it would sheath the vaginal path, with a ribbed outside for better grip and texture."

It turns out the idea was more on Sadlo's mind than Herbenick's when they met for lunch last year over a grilled cheese sandwich and soup at Farm, a restaurant in Bloomington, Indiana, past colleagues just looking to catch up. Because they both work in the sexual health field, the conversation eventually turned to work, which is when Sadlo mentioned an idea that had been on his mind.

“When he told me his idea for a female condom, I told him mine for male condoms,” Herbenick recalled in a telephone interview with Bloomberg. “We melded both. We’re both creative types and soon the conversation turned to sketching and to discussion about what was or wasn’t possible in terms of manufacturing.”

The idea to create a new type of female condom is not only exciting in terms of its potential global adoption, but also in terms of its potential economic impact. According to Bloomberg, "A more popular female condom could stoke growth in the overall market, projected to reach $6.6 billion in 2020 from $4.5 billion this year, according to a report published by Global Industry Analysts Inc. in May. Much of the focus has been on men’s condoms so far. Of the condoms provided by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, 95 percent were for men, according to a 2012 report."

Not mentioned by the Bloomberg writers or Herbenick is the potential a well-liked female condom could have on the adult industry, which is going through a protracted fight with government officials (and the AIDS Healthcare Foundation) over a porposed California state law that would mandate the use of condoms in adult productions. One of the main arguments used by opponents to any law that would enforce condom use is that consumers do not want to see condoms in movies, making their use economically problematic. Needless to say, a female condom, which could be put in place hours before actual intercourse and would presumable be less visible to the camera than its exterior cousin, would undermine that particular argument. It's unclear, however, whether other arguments regarding the potential for injuries from chafing following extended use of condoms would still apply to female condoms, and a female condom would of course have no impact on gay productions.

But it would presumably meet the legal definition of "barrier protection" used by the porposed law and one aspect of the development of a truly effective and pleasurable female condom that no one can deny is that the ready availability of such a product dramatically changes the conversation about condoms by placing the decision to use one literally into the hands of women.

Herbenick, who has been working in the sex research field for the 15 years, said of her project, “I’ve been very focused in my work on women’s sexual experience. To be making a real thing you can hold in your hand, help save lives and manage people’s sexual experience is beyond exciting.”

While her excitement is understandable and palpable, the road ahead is strewn with much more development as well as arduous and time-consuming approval processes. As explained by Bloomberg, "Typically, manufacturers must provide data on mechanical performance, viral penetration and contraceptive effectiveness. In the U.S., the Food and Drug Administration ranks female condoms as a class III medical device: generally the highest risk devices requiring the highest level of regulatory control."

“Wherever in the world you make it available, it’s a long process,” Herbenick added. “We need to prove that it protects against pregnancy and STIs. That it stays safe and doesn’t break or slip or get pushed inside the vagina. This initial grant of $100,000 is a wonderful introduction and gets us that early stage feedback from potential users, but it takes quite a lot more to get a contraceptive device on the market.”

Considering the massive potential for such a product, not only for regular women around the globe but also sex workers in and out of the adult entertainment industry, one can only hope that Herbenick and Sadlo, as well as all the others working in the field, are able to see their ideas through to fruition.

Axel Braun, Cast Of Wicked’s ’24 XXX’ Parody Entertain at PSK

Axel Braun, Cast Of Wicked’s ’24 XXX’ Parody Entertain at PSK

BURBANK, Calif.—Porn Star Karaoke, a Tuesday night staple at Sardo’s in Burbank, was the place to be this week as Axel Braun and several cast members of 24 XXX: An Axel Braun Parody from Wicked Pictures were in attendance, entertaining the crowds with trivia, giveaways of the movie and their own karaoke performances. (For the record, Kurt Lockwood does a killer version of the Black Crowes’ Hard to Handle.)

Braun, Lockwood, Riley Steele, Seth Gamble, Alec Knight, Penny Pax, James Bartholet and more chatted with fans, posed for pictures, randomly shouted “Dammit!” and autographed copies of the movie, which was released last month and marks one of the first movies released under the collaboration between Braun and Wicked Pictures. It also marks a reunion of sorts between Braun and Lockwood, the actor told AVN.

ADVERTISEMENT


“I was in the very first feature film Axel shot back in the early 2000s,” Lockwood said. “He had mentioned to me a while back that he wanted to do 24, but I didn’t hear anything for some time. Then he called me up out of the blue and said, ‘I am doing 24, and you need to be involved in this!’ Of course I said yes.”

Braun told AVN that 24 was one of a long list of movies he wanted to direct that he presented to Wicked Pictures officials at the beginning of the partnership.

“When I heard that the TV show 24 was getting another seasons of 12 episodes, I knew I needed to do this one next,” he said.

While it’s a departure from the superhero-themed parodies that Braun has become known for both in and out of the world of adult, he said the change was needed for him, both professionally and personally.

“I was starting to get bored with the genre, and it was affecting me,” he said. “I needed to recharge myself and my work, and that’s what this is. I definitely have some superhero things lined up for the future, but there are so many other projects coming that I am so excited about!”

In fact, he said, there could be announcements coming very soon about major works he has planned.

Malicious Trojan Targets Japanese Banks, Hosters, Porn Sites

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

Malicious Trojan Targets Japanese Banks, Hosters, Porn Sites

JAPAN—Malicious code targeting consumer banking data has infiltrated more than 90 of Japan's most popular porn sites in addition to several banks and hosting companies, according to security firm ESET, which released its findings via a blog post today.

"Win32/Aibatook, which targets Japanese users’ banking information and hosting providers’ account credentials... appeared at the end of 2013 and a previous version has already been documented by Symantec, which has even sinkholed some of Win32/Aibatook’s C&C servers," the post stated. "Far from being discouraged, the operators have since published an updated version and moved from Delphi to C++ as their programming language. This post will focus on this new strain, which came out in April 2014 and has some interesting quirks:

ADVERTISEMENT


"*Propagation of the malware is made through a custom exploitation chain placed on compromised websites

"*It only targets Internet Explorer, using an unusual technique to steal personal information

"*Two different implementations of the information-stealing logic are deployed; the first one is specifically tailored against two major Japanese banks, whereas the second one is more flexible and currently used to target around 90 Japanese websites"

The firm added, "As expected, the majority of the identified targets belong to the banking domain, but some of them are hosting companies, which could explain how legitimate websites are compromised and then used in the exploitation chain. It should be noted that the majority of the identified targets are important businesses in Japan."

Regarding the propagation methods used by the Aibook miscreants, ESET outlines the effectiveness of their single-minded targeting, explaining, "The Win32/Aibatook bank fraud malware’s story starts, as usual nowadays, with legitimate websites that have been compromised to redirect their visitors to exploit-serving machines in order to infect them with malicious software. But rather than using a full-fledged exploit kit – such as Fiesta, Angler or any other of the usual suspects, which are able to serve different exploits depending on the visitor’s configuration – the miscreants behind Win32/Aibatook infections employ only one exploit at a time. While it could appear to be a non-optimal strategy, it is actually coherent with the targeted nature of this whole operation. If you possess an efficient exploit against your target – Japanese bank customers in this case – why would you bother using more?"

As explained by The Register, "The malware relies on exploiting a Java security flaw that was patched more than a year ago to push Aibatook onto the machines of Windows PCs. More specifically users visiting compromised sites, are redirected towards an exploit page that attempts to take advantage of Java vulnerability (CVE-2013-2465) patched in June 2013. Attacks involved displaying an 404 error page to mask the fact that the PC is silently running a malicious Java applet.

"The whole attack," it adds, "relies on a single Java exploit rather than the standard approach of planting an exploit kit on a compromised websites. Exploit kits attempt to exploit a raft of common browser and other application software vulnerabilities (Adobe Flash, Java etc) to drop malware onto PCs that are not up to date with their patches."

While ESET appears to have a handle on the current technique that "implements two different information stealers, one specifically tailored against a few major Japanese banks, and a second one targeting around 90 different websites," the firm expressed concern about future exploits, warning, "Based on our observations during this investigation, Win32/Aibatook has been constantly developed over the past few months. We believe that this malware family is now ready for take-off, and we expect its authors to spread it more broadly in the near future."

LA studio gives adult agencies & stars new revenue stream

UK's Studio 66 TV Opens Los Angeles Location

Posted Jul 16th, 2014 10:20 AM

LOS ANGELES—Live adult content provider Studio 66 TV is expanding its operations with the opening of a Los Angeles studio. The new location may provide a large and consistent revenue stream for adult performers interested in becoming involved with the famed British network.

“With a growing fan base and popularity of our exclusive live content, we are thrilled to announce the opening of our state-of-the-art Los Angeles studio,” said Jamie Mac, Studio 66 TV owner. “This new facility will give adult agencies and stars in LA an opportunity to tap into a proven revenue stream.”

ADVERTISEMENT


Based in the United Kingdom, Studio 66 TV brings fans up close and personal with their favorite models and adult stars. The fast-growing network of channels showcases popular starlets on a live televised feed, providing fans with the opportunity to call and speak with their favorite models and adult stars about everything from the girls’ favorite food to a dream date scenario. After dark, things get hotter as callers get the chance to virtually interact with the girl’s sexiest fantasies.

Studio 66 TV provides fans access to some of the most beautiful and glamorous women in the entertainment industry, and its production values are of equally high value. Prior to the opening of the Los Angeles location, American adult entertainment performers had to travel to London to appear on Studio 66 TV. Among the top adult stars that have appeared on Studio 66 TV are Alexis Texas, Tori Black, Lexi Belle, Annika Albrite, Sara Jay, Jada Stevens, and Sophie Dee.

Talented US-based director Mime Freak has been employed by Studio 66 TV to manage the Los Angeles operation. “It comes with great excitement to be able to help establish a proven brand from the UK here in the US,” said Mime Freak. “As a director in the industry, I’m always looking for alternate ways to help starlets broaden their brand. Studio 66 TV is a great platform for girls wanting to do something different.”

Having locations in London and Los Angeles means models are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year through Studio 66 TV’s channels and its membership site.

Visitors to the site between the hours of 5:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. will see only PG content, with fully clothed models, and while the topics of conversation may be flirty and playful, they stop short from causing anyone to blush. Once 9:30 p.m. rolls around, the language gets dirty, the clothes come off, and the channels are adult-only.

It is to free visit any of Studio 66’s channels or website and watch the girls in HD, but in order to hear the conversation, fans must pick up the phone and call. It costs $3 per minute to talk directly with the featured model or listen in to what she’s saying.

For more information, please click here or here.

Adult industry agents are encouraged to email here to book clients on Studio 66 TV. For casting information, please email here.

From award-winning director Nica Noelle & Mile High Media, Icon Male’s debut release ‘Forgive Me Father’ features gay stars Ty Roderick and Casey Tanner

Icon Male’s Debut Title 'Forgive Me Father' Releases Today

Posted Jul 16th, 2014 05:00 AM

MONTREAL, Quebec—New gay romance studio Icon Male’s first release, Forgive Me Father, is now available on DVD. From Mile High Media and award-winning director Nica Noelle, Forgive Me Father features Ty Roderick, Nick Capra, Lance Hart and Trenton Ducati confessing their sinful homosexual desires in four lustful vignettes.

Forgive Me Father also stars power bottoms: Casey Tanner, Armond Rizzo, Tommy Defendi and Seth Santoro.

“In this series, parishioners go into the confessional booth seeking forgiveness, and as they confess we revisit the sins they’ve committed. There’s something about the anguish of sinning, of trying so hard not to give in to temptation and failing, that really appeals to me in terms of erotic storyline,” said Nica Noelle. “Forgive Me Father is structured along these lines. I’m really proud to present this as the debut release for Icon Male; it represents the type of films you can expect for my new studio.”

ADVERTISEMENT


“Icon Male’s first release is already a complete success," announced Jon Blitt, vice president of Mile High Media. "Nica once again is creating unique and exciting erotica that fans are craving. Forgive Me Father has topped the VOD charts in its first week on AEBN, and preorders are incredibly strong. We have a blockbuster on our hands. What a great way to launch a new gay studio.”

In Volume 1 of this emotional new series, director Nica Noelle takes you inside a priest's confessional, where tormented parishioners beg forgiveness for their sins of the flesh. From guilt-ridden teacher Nick Capra who falls in love with troubled, young student Armand Rizzo, to former priest Lance Hart who left the church when his desire for parishioner Tommy Defendi became too much to bear. We also find devoted husband Trenton Ducati tortured by shameful lust for his hot young brother in law Seth Santoro, and young, swaggering soldier Ty Roderick who unexpectedly falls for "pretty boy" Casey Tanner. Expect real sex, real positions, real orgasms, no dissolves.

Movies from Icon Male will be unique to the gay marketplace and embody what fans have come to expect from Nica Noelle and Mile High Media: genuine and intimate exchanges between performers featuring forbidden sex, emotion and compelling storyline.

Other Icon Male series slated to release include WWII period piece Prisoners of War, Men Seeking Men and Forbidden Encounters.

Canadian High School Student Challenges Abstinence ‘Education’

Canadian High School Student Challenges Abstinence 'Education'

EDMONTON, Alberta—Many current adult performers are familiar with the crap that passes for "sex education" in many of America's public schools, but a recently graduated Canadian high school student and her mother are fighting back—and they've managed to attract the interest of the Alberta Human Rights Commission.

The Edmonton Public School District requires its high school seniors to take a sex education course called "CALM," although under Section 11 of Alberta's Human Rights Act, parents are notified in advance that their children are scheduled to attend the program (as well as programs teaching about sexual orientation and religion), and they have the right to exempt their children from such classes.

But Emily Dawson, then 17 and a senior at McNally High School, had enrolled in Career and Life Management, a summer course—and since she hadn't previously attended the CALM program, she was asked to do so. It's mandatory to complete the two-day course for graduation unless her parents opt her out—but her mother, Kathy, who supports sex education, gave the school permission to enroll Emily in the class.

And that's when the trouble started.

According to the Edmonton Journal, Emily texted her mom, an agnostic, that the class was being taught by an anti-abortion activist from the Pregnancy Care Center, a Springfield, Missouri-based religious anti-abortion organization which gives abstinence "education" to 60 Edmonton-area junior and senior high schools each year.

"She [the teacher] did a lot of slut-shaming to the women, and pointed out the guys as horn-dogs," Emily told the Journal. "She really ridiculed single-parent families, she made it sound like they all give birth to juvenile delinquents."

After Kathy heard her daughter's report on what happened in the CALM class, she asked to have Emily excused from the following day's lecture—only to be told that "there was no way her child could skip the class without academic penalty." In other words, without attending the second day of the course, Emily would not graduate.

At that point, Kathy insisted on attending that second day of class herself, and while she admitted that there was no mention of "God" or "Jesus" during the class, "all the arguments in favour of chastity until marriage or against divorce and abortion were deeply rooted in Christian doctrine."

While it's unclear just which of these claims were taught in Edmonton's CALM program, Kathy Dawson's complaint to the Alberta Human Rights Commission alleges that "the presenter taught students that 60 percent of boys carry the HPV sexually transmitted infection under their fingernails, that gonorrhea can kill you in three days, that girls should dress modestly to avoid inflaming boys."

Also, as Tara Culp-Ressler pointed out on the ThinkProgress.com website, "These courses typically tell students that sex will make them dirty, and drive that point home with exercises that compare sexually active individuals with chewed up gum, dirty chocolate, and spit."

"It’s values-based sex ed and all the values are evangelical values," Kathy stated. "It’s not even mainstream Christianity. I’m not against abstinence. But I think the message is diminished when it’s surrounded by misinformation and fear."

Even the Edmonton Journal editorialized in favor on the Dawsons' position.

"It’s absurd. CALM isn’t religion class," wrote Paula Simons of the Journal. "That’s not what parents sign up for. Sex education in our local public schools should be delivered in a scientific, non-judgmental way, by qualified professionals, not outsourced to an American-based pro-life lobby group.

"Emily and Kathy Dawson have inspired an important public debate about the nature of our public schools. They deserve our thanks for their courage in speaking out."

YouPorn eSport Sponsorship Query Spurs Interest, Objections

YouPorn eSport Sponsorship Query Spurs Interest, Objections

LOS ANGELES—All it took to set off a firestorm of interest and objection was a simple tweet by YouPorn on Friday asking followers, “Do we have any competitive '[League of Legends],' 'DOTA2,' or 'HeartStone' players following us? What do you think about YouPorn sponsoring a team?"

The reference is to eSports, or professional gaming, which CNBC’s Chris Morris noted today has “exploded onto the pop culture scene in the past three years. The field gathers the top players in the world in games that range from Activision's ‘Call of Duty’ and ‘StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm’ to Nintendo's ‘Super Smash Bros.’

ADVERTISEMENT


“Although the idea of watching people play video games may sound dull,” he continued, “the speed and efficiency at which some of these players compete is on par with the NBA or NFL. And the fan base is rabidly enthusiastic. Last year's League of Legends finals sold out the 15,000 seat Staples Center in Los Angeles (home of the L.A. Lakers) in under an hour. (Scalpers commanded prices of up to $2,000 per seat, having paid somewhere between $45 and $100 originally.)”

No wonder the people at YouPorn find potential in the activity. Spokesperson Matt Blake explained, "We've often thought that there are parallels between our business and gaming. We figured now was a great time to try and wet our feet and join the gaming world."

He added, "We've been overwhelmed by the number of responses we've received—we're definitely doing a bunch of research right now.”

According to Morris, the YouPorn tweet querying members about a possible sponsorship “spurred a flurry of replies from fans, with most encouraging the site to do so, and a few pro gamers inquiring about how they could be considered candidates for that sponsorship.”

But Morris also noted that the immediate flurry of interest also caught the attention of “eSports organizations [that] organize the tournaments that sometimes draw thousands of spectators.

“Although Red Bull eSports, Major League Gaming, Riot Games (the makers of the ‘League of Legends’ game) and other groups all declined to comment on the record,” he added that “several indicated any team sponsored by the company could risk violating policies that prohibit any advertising content promoting sites or products of a sexual nature.”

That hesitation, he surmised, may be because “eSports are relatively new, [and] the larger bodies in the field are seeking legitimacy with a mainstream audience, something that might be harder to obtain if there is an apparent tie-in with the adult entertainment industry.”

YouPorn’s Blake responded to that diplomatically, telling the network, "We'd like to think we'll be received with open arms, but the reality is that's not always the case. We're hoping that people will be able to see the positives which we'd like to think will outweigh any negative connotations. We're doing this ultimately because of requests we've received in the past, and generally just think now's a great time to get into this arena."

Austrian Church Porn Shoots Could Net Jail Time for Filmmakers

Austrian Church Porn Shoots Could Net Jail Time for Filmmakers

HÖRSCHING, Upper Austria—Austrian media is reporting that a female porn performer and her crew could be in legal hot water after shooting two porn films inside a Hörsching parish.

According to The Local, The film crew did not have the parish priest's permission to film in his church, the Austrian Press Agency reported.

“The Diocese of Linz said police are still investigating how the crew and actors were able to get into the church,” it added. “The films starred a ‘well-known’ porn actress and were made available to download on the internet.”

ADVERTISEMENT


The authorities are reportedly still looking for the performer, named Babsi, 24, from Upper Austria. If found, she and the film crew “could be charged under Section 189 of the Criminal Code, which prohibits creating ‘mischief’ which is liable to cause legitimate nuisance in a church or religious community.” Punishments range from fines to imprisonment for up to six months.

The way the diocese sees it, the filming caused damage to “the dignity of the church.” As it considers how to restore that dignity, however, it also was moved to assure parishioners that, "The sacraments which were celebrated in the past few weeks in the parish church are still considered valid.”

That’s presumably a relief to the locals, though it’s unclear why one would assume that a consensual sex act would have any influence, positive or negative, on a sacred Christian rite that just happened to be performed in the same general location, as if the aether itself had been contaminated. That would appear to be giving the porn a tad more power than it deserves.

Fast Times at the Las Vegas Township Constable Office

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

'Review-Journal' alleges serious obstruction of justice by Constable John Bonaventura.

LAS VEGAS, Nevada—Looking back over the coverage by the Las Vegas Review-Journal of the Las Vegas Township Constable John Bonaventura, one would be forgiven for thinking that it's not real news but a fictitious plot for a motion picture comedy about a hapless buffoon who happens to wear a badge and oversee an office of equally dysfunctional clowns. After all, as columnist John L. Smith noted in June in a piece exploring the serious underpinnings of a secretly recorded phone call between the constable and Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins, "Bonaventura was such an embarrassment that the county euthanized the constable’s office last year like a sway-backed Shetland pony."

ADVERTISEMENT


The stories surrounding Bonaventure's litany of fuck-ups is well known to Vegas insiders. As AVN legal columnist and Vegas resident Clyde DeWitt explained, "There are all kinds of investigations about him—he did a reality show that made the deputies look like idiots; he required his deputies to give him a kickback every time they got a paycheck; the County wouldn't pay a lawyer to defend him for something so he hired a deputy who, not by coincidence, was an attorney who was to defend him; and on and on and on. It got so bad that the County Commission abolished his office effective at the end of his term in January."

But as comical as it all sounds, and despite the fact that the city fathers have clearly heard and seen enough from that particular office—which is officially tasked with serving as the civil enforcement agency for the Las Vegas Township Justice Court, basically as process servers with civil, but no criminal, authority—yesterday's article by Ben Botkin of the Las Vegas Review-Journal strongly indicates that Bonaventure's second-in-command, Deputy Chief Dean Lauer, may have far exceeded his authority by using "office resources to look for information about adult film actresses."

Adding fuel to the fire, the article further claims that during another secretly recorded meeting in April 2013, "Bonaventura ordered the shredding of documents from an internal investigation" into Lauer's actions, an order that the constable denied giving in an email to the paper printed on Monday.

The recording belies that claim, however. According to Botkin, "Bonaventura ordered the documents destroyed at a meeting in April 2013, about a month after Clark County commissioners voted to abolish the troubled office at the end of Bonaventura’s term.

"Deputies," he continued, "had raised an alarm after learning that someone used Lauer’s log-on name and password to access the office’s $800-a-month subscription-based database to look up porn actresses, according to documents obtained by the newspaper and inter­views with employees of the office."

Botkin added, "The database service, Accurint, is typically used by law enforcement for investigative purposes such as finding addresses, phone numbers and contact information for people, such as the names of family members. It can also provide other personal data, such as dates of birth, Social Security numbers and other names used by a person."

Not only was the paper given the recording by an unnamed source within the department— "Bonaventura’s employees have told the newspaper they routinely make surreptitious recordings to document interactions with colleagues and superiors in the constable’s office, and someone in the meeting did just that."—but it was also provided with Constable Office records, including ones indicating that "someone using Lauer’s password searched for 16 current and former actresses, including Traci Lords, Porche Lynne [sic], Kayla Kleevage, Lisa Sparxxx and Gianna Michaels. Employees of the office said it was unclear whether the system was accessed from a Constable’s Office computer or a personal computer elsewhere. No legitimate law enforcement purpose for the searches was ever identified, they told the Review-Journal."

In addition to his current denial to the paper, Bonaventura was also reportedly resistant to an official investigation into the searches by Capt. Hadi Sadjadi, the office’s internal affairs investigator, who, according to Botkin, "presented the information at the meeting with Bonaventura, Lauer and other senior officers. On a recording of the meeting obtained by the Review-Journal, Bonaventura wasn’t interested in knowing anything at all about the unauthorized searches done between March and December 2012.

“'I need you to pull out all that stuff you got on Dean for running the Accurint stuff because, you know, I believe in my heart that he didn’t do it because he’s addicted to porno or something like that,' Bonaventura is heard saying. 'I know somebody mentioned it was 3 in the morning or whatever. ... I don’t know. I don’t even want to know. I don’t want to f—-ing know. Whatever you got, I want you to bring it in here and put it in the pile.'"

As far as the obvious discrepancy between his recorded comments and his public denials goes, Bonaventura claims a conspiracy to get him, telling the paper that "the recording was probably doctored by a disgruntled former employee, though he declined an offer to have it played for him."

Lauer made similar claims, explaining "in a statement that he had in the past filed a report about his passwords being accessed and changed. He also called the recording of the meeting 'illegal and possibly doctored.'"

But Botkin's sources within the office—both "current and former employees familiar with the matter"—claim that Bonaventura's orders were in fact followed "and his men shredded the records."

Botkin adds, "In the year since the shredding, Lauer has remained on the job. He is one of about two dozen sworn law enforcement officers in the Constable’s Office, which handles evictions and serves court papers."

As mentioned above, the secretly recorded conversation about unauthorized searches of adult performers by Lauer is but one recording made by office insiders. Another recording obtained by the Review-Journal of "a telephone conversation between Bonaventura and Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins" in which the "pair talked about the County Commission’s decision to abolish the constable’s office and Bonaventura’s run for the seat of Commissioner Mary Beth Scow in the June primaries," also raises larger questions about the possible illegal activities of members of the Las Vegas Township Constable Office, and led to a June 17 raid on the office by the Metropolitan Police Department looking into a "wiretapping probe into the recording."

As Botkin notes, however, "Bonaventura has not been arrested or charged with any crimes in connection with the ongoing investigation."

While that investigation continues, the more recent allegations regarding the destruction by staff at the behest of Bonaventura of documentation into the unauthorized searches by Lauer could spawn yet another investigation, as well of course as the potential for criminal charges as well as civil litigation by victimized adult performers.

Marshmallow Girl: AVN’s BBW Performer of the Year Keeps Busy

AVN’s BBW Performer of the Year Keeps Busy

Posted Jul 15th, 2014 12:12 PM

This interview by Rob Perez originally ran in the July 2014 issue of AVN magazine. Flores is pictured here in a still from Marshmallow Girls: BBW Icon April Flores, an Evil Angel title directed by Aiden Starr that streets July 16. To see more images, click here.

Among her many achievements since April Flores debuted in adult films nearly a decade ago, being crowned BBW Performer of the Year at the AVN Awards Show in January of this year clearly ranks near the pinnacle, according to the plus-size beauty. “It’s up there at the top for sure. To be recognized for a body of work, it feels like a goal has been accomplished. To me that’s huge, and to be recognized by AVN, the voters and the fans ... is definitely one of the highlights of my life and of my career.”

ADVERTISEMENT


In the months since she was announced as the inaugural winner in AVN’s BBW Performer of the Year category, Flores has been bestowed with congratulations from the industry, friends and fans as well as fellow BBW performers. It really isn’t surprising that her peers, especially the younger BBW performers, look up to her. April Flores has been the longtime face of BBW porn, and while other plus-size performers can take some credit for popularizing BBW porn over the past decade—Samantha 38G, Kelly Shibari, Desiree Devine come to mind—no other performer is more identified with the genre. “I’m not a person who’s had too many goals but my goal was performing,” said Flores, who originally wanted to show the world plus-size women are equally as beautiful as their thinner counterparts. “It was to try to tell other women that we’re still sexy even though we’re not whatever society deems as beautiful, or the ideal body type. I think that message has reached a lot of women and men. That goal has been reached and that makes me feel really happy and very proud.”

Rarely does a performer reach such heights without a strong support system, and there was no stronger support system than April’s late husband, Carlos Batts. The night of the awards show was bittersweet for Flores, who was feeling his absence on that night strongly. “I know he was there with me in spirit. I would have loved for him to be there physically and enjoy the award with me.” Still, it’s not stopping Flores from making the most of her BBW Performer of the Year win. A week prior to this interview she had already shot new content, and she told AVN that plans are “in the works” for her to shoot new scenes in the coming year. “I’ve had a lot of talks, a lot of texts ... so yeah, I’m definitely going to be performing a lot this year. I’m still being very selective on what I work on. I’m just still in a fragile state right now. It’s more about me being emotionally prepared to do my best in terms of shooting a scene. I just want to make sure I can give the best performance I can for the director, my scene mate and for me.”

In March, Flores performed in the first of several new scenes for her friend and fellow BBW Performer of the Year nominee Courtney Trouble, appearing alongside queer porn performer Q-Tip in a scene for Trouble’s Lesbian Curves 3. She also is appearing in a scene with Trouble and female-to-male performer Rodstein for James Darling’s FTMFucker.com. And in June she made a spotlight cameo in an orgy scene in Trouble’s Chelsea Poe: Fucking Mystic.

“April performed in her new scenes with all the same love, passion, energy, hilarity, gorgeousness and attention to detail that she always has,” said Trouble, who has worked regularly with Flores over the years.

“I wasn’t sure how I would react to shooting again but I realized after the orgy and shooting two scenes that ... performing is something I really enjoy,” Flores said about her recent scenes. “It was good to go back to performing and doing something that I really love and I’m used to doing, and I feel like I’m good at doing. My goal is to make it through this year and grow in the process. I want to see personal, professional [and] artistic growth. I want to see growth within the next year in every level of my life. Ultimately, performing to me has always been an outlet for me to express myself, to empower other women, and to have fun and enjoy myself.”

One of those projects “in the works” turns out to be a showcase movie shot by performer-turned-director Aiden Starr. Titled Marshmallow Girls: BBW Idol April Flores, it is the first in Starr’s new BBW line for Evil Angel. The director explained that “marshmallow girls” is a Japanese term for BBWs. Starr also performed in one of the scenes with Flores. The title will street on July 16.

Director Starr was thrilled to say a few words about the five-scene showcase movie, which she called “super epic.” The action starts with a tease, as Flores—always a fashion plate—tries on various outfits. Initially, Starr said, plans were to do four scenes: tease, b/g, b/g/g and b/b/g. But once she started working with Flores, her vision changed. The action “builds up to some of the heaviest scenes I’ve ever shot,” Starr said. “I wasn’t expecting it to be rough, but it’s right up there with Fucking Hostile [one of the director’s recent releases from Evil Angel, which explores domination and submission].”

In the end, Starr added a blowbang scene. When talking to Flores about what makes a showcase movie, Starr explained, Flores told her it should involve seeing a performer “doing something they’ve never done before, and that’s why I put a blowbang into the movie.”

On the other end of the spectrum is Flores’ scene with Betty Blac. “I didn’t know Betty Blac before I cast her. She is just so attractive—what a pretty girl,” Starr said, marveling, “She’s like a ninja with pussy licking. … Her tongue is like crazy fucking long. She knew exactly where to put her face; she knew how to make it real and how to get April off.”

And as for Flores herself, “She’s super sexy and can really throw down,” Starr said. “She’s so pretty—what a beautiful woman. She was just a dream to shoot.”

Candida Royalle Turns to Kickstarter to Fund Documentary Project

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

Ever wondered about the early life of Candida Royalle? It'll all be in 'While You Were Gone'

Candida Royalle Turns to Kickstarter to Fund Documentary Project

NEW YORK CITY—When AVN caught up with Candida Royalle in San Francisco as the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality was bestowing an honorary doctorate upon her, she told us about her latest project: an autobiographical documentary about her life, her extensive work in adult entertainment and beyond, to be titled While You Were Gone: The Untold Story of Candida Royalle. And she and filmmaker Sheona McDonald will be paying for it with a Kickstarter program, which can be found here.

ADVERTISEMENT


"Sheona is from Vancouver, and I met her when she interviewed me for a documentary she's doing on women, sex and shame, and we just hit it off," Candida said. "That was a year ago; she called me a few months ago, and she called again and asked if she could ask me a few more questions, and in the course of it, we had hit it off so well back then, I mentioned that wanted to do this project and I was going to work with someone but I didn't think it was going to work out with them, and so we talked about her maybe her helping me get it off the ground, and I knew immediately that I wanted to work with her."

And to say the least, While You Were Gone will have a long and varied history to cover—beginning with its title, which refers to Candida's search for her birth mother, who abandoned Candida when the child was just 18 months old.

"Everyone has always said, for many years, 'You really should do something about your life's work,' and it's true: My work is very interesting," Candida explained. "But there are a lot of people doing books and documentaries about their work—and I've been in a million documentaries, other people's documentaries—and I really wanted to make it broader, and more about my life, so I decided that it was time for me to finally search for my birth mother and the family, some of whom I knew I had, some of whom I didn't know I had, and that that was turning out to be the underpinning, the thread that runs through my documentary is the search for family, and the journey and what it's leading to."

Thanks to a tip from her friend, ACLU attorney Marjorie Heins (author of the excellent study of humans' sexual habits, Not in Front of the Children), Candida employed the services of a detective to track down her missing family members.

"My father's the one who raised me, with a stepmother, and he passed away in 2002. My stepmother passed away in 2003, and since then, I've given a lot of thought to family and to wondering what the rest of them, whom I didn't know, were doing."

So a large part of the documentary process has been Candida finding her extended family and planning to meet with them, as well as her friends both in and out of adult, and other people who have affected her life, and the Kickstarter program will allow Sheona to film Candida's encounters with them.

"We've already shot a lot of footage just talking about it," Candida said. "Sheona's here with me shooting some of this [Candida's talk at the Institute], and we are actually going to travel to the places where I have family, and she's going to follow me, I guess is the right descriptive, as I finally see these people for the first time."

Candida's career in adult is legendary all by itself. She's appeared in nearly 60 adult movies—a fair record for an actress in those '70s/early '80s days of adult movies—though many of her roles were non-sex. She soon got the "directing bug," and in 1984 came out with the first of her 17 movies, Femme, released under her own label, Femme Productions. Her most recent film is Under The Covers, released in 2007 through Candida's distribution deal with Adam & Eve. Candida also introduced her Natural Contours line of vibrators in 1996, and she told AVN that she will soon be releasing three new models of the popular novelty.

But adult acting, directing and sex toy creation is hardly all Candida is about. A proud feminist in college, she was one of the founding members of the first adult actress support group, Club 90, and over the years, she has been a featured speaker with Feminists for Free Expression, an organization founded in 1992 and based in New York City. Candida herself, along with fellow performers such as Gloria Leonard and Annie Sprinkle, has taken part in several debates with "anti-porn feminists" such as Andrea Dworkin, Catherine MacKinnon and Gail Dines. Candida has also been active in politics, having spoken against California's first "sin tax" bill, SB 1013, sponsored by then-Sen. Charles Calderon in the late '90s.

"I'm really excited about this project," Candida said. "Other than that, my line is still out on the market. I'm always promoting it and selling it, as well as my Natural Contours line, so yeah,  I'm very busy. It doesn't sound like a lot, but it sure keeps me busy. It's a very wonderful journey."

Another important reason for the documentary is the fact that Candida's health has taken some rocky turns over the past few years, but at least for the moment, those concerns are past her and she's tackling the documentary with all the vigor she put into her own filmmaking.

And as the Kickstarter page puts it, "Candida Royalle is a woman you think you know, with a story you've heard before. A porn star, turned producer, turned advocate for women's sexual rights. But inside the story you know, is a woman you don't: Candice. Abandoned by her mother at a young age and raised in unusual circumstances, she was at the heart of these big moments, cultural shifts, who chose a path not many would ... and then found a way to change her story ... who fought for every inch of her success, who faced cancer head-on ... and through all that, came to THIS place ... this point where she's ready to tell her own story in a way we've never imagined ... through the search for a mother she never knew... but is it too late?"

"People can follow me and learn about all this stuff through my website, of course, which is simply CandidaRoyalle.com," Candida said. They can also learn more about the project on Facebook as well as the documentary's blog, which has photos and videos from Candida's early life, as well as words of support from her friends.

Girlfriends Films Supports 5th Annual ‘Vice Is Nice’ Fundraiser

Casino-style benefit & party for animal rescues takes place July 26

Girlfriends Films Supports 5th Annual 'Vice Is Nice' Fundraiser

Posted Jul 15th, 2014 10:02 AM

VALENCIA, Calif.—Girlfriends Films is throwing its support behind Vice Is Nice, co-sponsoring the adult industry fundraiser for the 5th year in a row. The animal rescue benefit and casino-themed party will be held on Saturday, July 26, 2014; registration is currently open here.

Kelly Holland, an avid animal lover and Penthouse Entertainment’s managing director, organizes Vice Is Nice each year as a way to bring the adult industry together in a philanthropic spirit. The event promotes caring and giving.

ADVERTISEMENT


“We’re hosting our 5th annual Vice Is Nice fundraiser, and Girlfriends Films has been involved from the beginning,” stated Holland. “I think they were one of the first sponsors to come onboard in Year 1. Moose and Dan said, ‘Great, how can we be involved?”’

“That’s been Girlfriends Films’ attitude throughout the history of the company, making them one of the great companies in this business,” Holland continued. “They are involved in charities inside the adult industry; they are always there to help performers and organize around political issues affecting our industry. I’d say much of their success is a reflection of that same engagement with their customers and fans.”

 “I couldn’t be more thrilled to have them back as sponsors," she added. "Thank you, Girlfriends Films!”

Vice Is Nice will feature a poker tournament and casino games, music, dancing, magicians, tarot card readings, hourly prize raffles, and more.  Money raised at the event will go to support three animal rescues: Pink Paws, a cat rescue run by a deputy sheriff in LA County; Life4Paws, a dog rescue in the San Fernando Valley; FixNation, LA’s only free, fulltime spay/neuter clinic for homeless stray and feral cats; and Almost Home Animal Rescue, a San Diego-based rescue.

 “Each year, Kelly’s Vice Is Nice event shows just how generous and caring our industry can be, and we all have a great time doing it!" Girlfriends Films President Moose stated. "We’re extremely proud to once again support Vice Is Nice.”

In addition to its annual support of Vice Is Nice, Girlfriends Films turns to its employees, performers, directors, and adult industry principals each month to select a charity to support. In 2013, the Girlfriends Films Charity Program donated over $20,000 to a wide array of philanthropic organizations, from medical institutes to animal sanctuaries.

Exposing the ‘Purrverse’ Truth Behind Sex Trafficking Stings

Exposing the 'Purrverse' Truth Behind Sex Trafficking Stings

LOS ANGELES—Kitty Stryker posted a angry screed to The Frisky today that gives the lie to the justification that is always given when law enforcement resources and tax-payer money are used to take down sites like MyRedBook.com and arrest sex workers for trying to stay safe while earning a living.

"It’s interesting that every single time an adult site is shut down," she writes, "'child prostitution rings' or 'sex trafficking' are cited as the reasons. Companies like Google throw down big money to support these anti-trafficking measures, even though the statistics suggest the money lines the pockets of organizers more than it helps at-risk populations.

ADVERTISEMENT


"I hear how we must think of the children," she adds, "yet when you look at the statistics of who gets arrested, it’s vulnerable adults who end up in handcuffs. Teenagers who go into sex work are often assumed to have less agency than they do, studies have suggested — sex work provides a sustainable survival method for many homeless youth, male, female, trans and cis. So if they are not all in the danger anti-sex work feminists want us to believe they are, who is getting caught in these police webs?"

She answers, in part, by citing a conversation she had with "one woman who was arrested for sex work in 2010. The cops used money that was earmarked for child trafficking to instead waste man-hours chatting her up over several days before coming in for the sting."

The woman told her, "They basically dicked around with me for days over email. He said he had never seen anyone before and didn’t have references but was willing to meet up with me at a cafe for a meet n’ greet. Honestly? He spent so much time writing that I thought what fucking cop would have the time. There was no way that they could have mistaken that I’m on my own and of age — it’s obviously not a way to target children or pimps."

The arrest process her friend went through was even more humiliating. “Oh my god, there were five cops, multiple cars," the friend recounted. "It was a big ordeal. I was like seriously? This much time, this many people, all for little ol’ me? And they leered, arguing over who got to escort me to the car. The cops asked me so many other really rude and inappropriate questions like … if I was pregnant, if I had any STDs, when my last period was. They took 15 bazillion pictures of all my condoms, trying to shame me. The sheriff was even wearing a shirt with some sort of weird misogynist sexual innuendo."

She added that the cops never even asked her if she had been coerced into sex work.

Stryker adds, "In short, no, I do not trust the police have my best interests at heart, and I’m a privileged white cisgendered woman. Basically, it seems to me that California is determined to ensure that women who go into sex work die on the streets, at the hand of an abuser who will go unpunished, or in jail. That would, of course, include me, and many people I know …. particularly the trans women and women of color."

Even more cynically, she caustically observes, "Between this and the mandated condom bill, AB1576, I’m so grateful that anti-sex work feminists care so deeply for our wellbeing that they’re pushing sex workers to desperation by removing our only methods of making money without any solutions for how to survive financially. It’s great to see how they’re happy to offer us makeup and cupcakes but not practical resources like job connections, education funding, and medical support. What could possibly go wrong?"

Her palpable anger leads her to conclude, "The next time you read some hysteria about child prostitution stings, look at who gets arrested and how the arrests go down. At-risk people are put at more risk by these measures, and it needs to be exposed for what it is — supporting, not women and children, but the corporate, patriarchal status quo."

Apple Corrects iCloud Claims in ‘Sex Tape’ Movie Plotline

Apple Corrects iCloud Claims in 'Sex Tape' Movie Plotline

LOS ANGELES—Sometimes marketing gets in the way of marketing. Take Apple's association with the about-to-be-released movie, Sex Tape, directed by Jake Kasdan and starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segal, whose characters, according to Cult of Mac, "record an 'adult home movie' on their iPad, only to accidentally upload it to the iCloud, so that all their friends and family get to see it."

Of little concern to most audiences, techincal details in the comedy's plotline remain problematic for the company. As explained by Luke Dormehl for the site, "While Apple’s inclusion in the film means that Cupertino is presumably happy with the script (the trailer even features an added reference to Siri), when GQ magazine contacted AppleCare to find out whether the described scenario could actually happen it was told that it is pretty much flat-out science-fiction."

An AppleCare specialist explained, "Videos can be backed up to iCloud, but what that means is the video would be saved as, like, a backup. But you wouldn’t be able to share it with anyone. No one can go into the iCloud and watch the video.”

The specialist also clarified that a video cannot be accidentally uploaded to the iCloud, noting, “You would have to make special settings for anyone to be able to see that—like a shared stream.”

Whether director Kasdan thought to inquire of Apple about these sorts of technical details before making the movie we do not know, but according to a interview he just gave HuffPo Live, he did reach out to YouPorn as part of his research for "a sequence in the movie having to do with YouPorn and the threat of YouPorn, which is a huge, huge porn company website.

"They play prominently in the movie," the director told host Ricky Camilleri, "and we were actually working with YouPorn on one sequence—we needed their cooperation—working with them to the extent that were hoping they would help us out a little bit, and they did."

According to Kasdan, the YP staff explained to him precisely how the tube site model works, telling Camilleri, "[YouPorn] had a lot to tell us about how technically it all works, in terms of how this all works on the Internet, and that was really interesting actually. It turns out [people upload videos] so frequently and in such volume that those websites are just some of the biggest on Earth, and the technology to keep them running is worldwide. It was much more like a tech company than like a porn company."

Sex Tape opens this weekend, technical faux pas intact.

UK Gets Looks at Porn Star Killers in 'Snapped' Series

LOS ANGELES—A U.S. series called Snapped: Killer Couples that debuts in the United Kingdom today on the Crimes & Investigation Channel will feature a pair of porn star killers who were convicted in 2012 of the premeditated murder of a man in 2010. The episode on Amanda Logue and Jason Andrews first aired in the states in 2013 during the show's first season on the Oxygen network, as its very first killer couple.

According to the Mirror, "Snapped: Killer Couples looks at the gruesome murders where it turned out that a loved-up twosome were responsible for. In the first episode of the series, the show looks at the death of Dennis Abrahamsen who police believe met his demise so his killers could get a sexual kick.

"The 41-year-old was found face down on a massage table with multiple stab wounds and his head bludgeoned," it continued. "Behind the 2010 attack was adult-movie star Amanda Logue and her partner Jason Andrews."

Andrews is currently serving a life sentence after pleading guilty in order to avoid a possible death sentence, and Logue, who performed as Sunny Dae, "pleaded guilty to second-degree murder as part of a deal that will net her 40 years in a Florida prison," as AVN reported in 2012.

In the episode, according to the Mirror, Logue, speaking from a prison cell, said "killing was what got her boyfriend aroused. On the night of his death, Dennis had booked Logue to perform at a sex party but his body was found dead the next morning. Logue claimed she was innocent and instead pinpointed her partner as the culprit."

However, messages shared by the two before, during and after the crime indicated that Logue was an active and willing participant in the crime, the lurid details of which will be presented to the U.K. public tonight.

Moscow’s Coat of Arms, Porn and the Bolshoi Theatre

Moscow's Coat of Arms, Porn and the Bolshoi Theatre

MOSCOW, Russia—Porn, penises and free speech in general are getting the once over in Moscow as officials are reportedly in the process of making it illegal for the city's coat of arms to appear in salacious places.

According to The Moscow Times, "Moscow authorities are in the process of forbidding pornographers from showing the city's coat of arms in sex films. The coat of arms features a medieval depiction of a dragon being slain by St. George, the patron saint of the city's founder, Viking prince Yury Dolgoruky.

"The ban," the paper continues, "is being pushed by the city's cultural heritage department, which regulates the use of state symbols in business endeavors."

But porn is not the only place city fathers are worried about. "The coat of arms will also be banned from appearing within a context of violence or foul language," adds the Times.

Similar feelings of vulnerability are also being felt about the country's 100-ruble bill, which contains a depiction of a human penis, though one would be hard-pressed to see it without the help of a magnifying glass. Still, a federal lawmaker wants the bill to be redesigned because of the exposed organ, which once appeared on the facade of Moscow's famous Bolshoi Theater, which features a statue of the mythological god Apollo.

While the bill shows an early incarnation of the theater's facade that showed the penis, "On the actual theater, the penis was recently covered with a fig leaf during a renovation," the Times reports.

There is of course nothing new about government officials retreating in shame from the ancients' acceptance of the natural form, nothing new at all.
