Fresh Face: Carmen Caliente

Comments Off

Carmen Caliente

Hometown: Tampa, FL
Age: 19
Stats: 5’ 7”, 34B-24-34
Heritage: Puerto Rican and white
Eyes: Brown
Hair: Blonde (“It came in the package blonde”)

Was it her Latin blood or the fact that before porn she earned her scratch flipping burgers over a hot griddle at McDonald’s that inspired Carmen Caliente to choose the stage name she did? Perhaps it was a little of both, but one thing for certain is that she’s been burning up the pornosphere of late, catching the eyes of many on box covers, in magazines and all over the internet. Below, the super-spicy spitfire tells us everything about herself we wanted to know and weren’t afraid to ask.

ADVERTISEMENT


When did you get started doing this?
November 2, 2013.

That’s very specific.
The day that changed my life.

Who did you shoot for on November 2, 2013?
That’s actually the day my plane landed in Las Vegas, and I shot for Porn Pros—Casting Couch X was my first shoot.

How did you decide you wanted to do this?
I had just graduated at high school. So, I’m just chillin’, flipping my burgers and shit, and I have a good friend who’s about my age, who’s in the industry [Marina Angel]. She’s been my friend for a long time outside of work and I’ve known her for years. Anyway, she kept on disappearing for long periods of time. And I kept thinking where the fuck is this girl going, coming back with all this money, what the fuck is going on? So then, I finally put it together, and she’s like, “Yeah, OMG, you caught me doing porn.” And she asked if I wanted to do it. I said, “No, OMG!” I’m a prude. And then I was like, well, maybe it would be fun, and I’ve never even left Florida before.  And, man, what am I going to do, sit here and just fucking flip these burgers until I get a car? Or, okay, let’s go to Vegas, woohoooo! I lied and tried to hang onto that job for a couple of weeks until things came out and shit hit the fan.

So did you quit voluntarily or did you get fired?
Yeah, I got forced to quit. I technically got fired because I stopped going to work. My high school was not even a mile away from my job so when my video dropped, everybody was in the lobby and I was in the kitchen making food, and hearing people screaming “Carmen!” and I’m like, “Oh fuck!” And some kids had printed out pictures of a pop shot on my face and throwing it in the lobby. And I just thought, “I don’t feel comfortable here anymore. I’m just not feeling it anymore.” They made it really awkward.

What are your dos and don’ts?
I do girl/girl, boy/girl, boy/girl/girl/girl/girl/girl/girl/girl/girl … through porn, I realized I like girls a lot. I was never with a girl before porn, and I lost my lesbian virginity on camera and now I realize I like girls better than I thought I would. So, girls!

Any favorite girls?
Well, Marina Angel is the one who took my lesbian virginity. It was the funniest experience ever, because she’s like my best friend and we were just all giggles. It was like, “OMG, this is your pussy!” And I’ve never even seen my own from that angle, so I was like, whoa! It didn’t make anything awkward—if anything it made us closer—and now we fuck around off camera, so … If I could work with anyone, Samantha Saint—what the fuck, it would be legendary.  If I could even meet her I’d be happy. If I had to shoot a scene with her, I’d be like, “Duhhhhhh.” I also like Jada Stevens, her ass is really nice.

Did you have any kind of religion growing up?
I’m Puerto Rican, so my heritage growing up, I was around Baptist Christians, and I did the whole church thing and it was great and liberating. I still do believe in God, but if you believe in God then you don’t feel as though he’s judging you on these sexual acts that harshly. If he can forgive someone who commits murder, I’m not going to sit here and cry about my pussy being on the internet, all right? And that’s my take on religion.

Do you do any sports?
I look like I do. Twerking. I like to penny board, but I bust my ass too often to say it’s a hobby. I like kickboxing. That’s what I grew up doing, that’s why I have an athletic build—I did it for 10 years consecutively.

Any other special abilities?
Twerking.

Besides twerking—can you cook?
I don’t know. I wonder what girls say other than twerking?

Do you play any instruments?
Does anyone? Do most of these girls play ukuleles?

Some do.
Damn! I gotta step up my ukulele game!

What’s the one thing you want everyone to know about you?
That I really like to twerk! I know, I’ve mentioned twerking about six times. When you see me, know that I can throw that ass! [And] know that I’m nice and I don’t bite unless you want me to.

Coke or Pepsi?
So controversial! Dr. Pepper!

You said the secret answer! You got it!
Dr. Pepper is life. Fuck either of those. That is my life, Dr. Pepper, smoking, hiking and twerking.

What’s your insightful comment for the world?
Don’t make life difficult for each other. That’s pretty much it. Try to make life as easy as possible for one another. Universal good vibes.

Digital Sin to Introduce 'Meet Aidra' on Oct. 23

Posted Oct 16th, 2014 03:52 PM

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Digital Sin has set an October 23 release date for Meet Aidra, the newest showcase in its acclaimed star-making series. Co-directed by Eddie Powell and Paul Woodcrest, the title features up-and-coming performer Aidra Fox in a variety of hardcore acts meant to push the 19-year-old’s sexual limits, including a four-man gangbang, double-vaginal, and an all-girl three-way with Riley Reid and Remy LaCroix.

"I loved every part of Meet Aidra! I couldn't think of a better company to do a DVD for either," Fox said. "Eddie Powell and Paul Woodcrest got everyone I wanted to work with, and let me push myself harder than ever. I'm super proud; I think it came out great. I'm so thrilled Digital Sin picked me for this! I can't wait for everyone to see it!"

Meet Aidra finds Fox submitting to intense double-vaginal penetrations from Spanish performers Toni Ribas and Ramon Nomar, taking on mainstream crossover sensation James Deen in a hot knockabout romp, holding her own in an all-girl power threesome with beautiful award-winning stunners Riley Reid and Remy LaCroix, and losing all self-control as the rag dolled focus of a four-man gangbang, featuring Xander Corvus, Karlo Karrera, Mick Blue and John Strong. "Meet Aidra" also includes candid interview segments in which Fox reveals details about her life and career, and shares insight into the movie's scenes and the fantasies that drive her.

"We were very impressed with Aidra since first shooting her, and she has only continued to get better with each performance," Eddie Powell said. "People who are familiar with her work know she has an appetite for all things hardcore, but she's thoughtful about it and knows exactly what she wants to do. Meet Aidra is her journey. We were just there to capture every intense and hot moment on camera, and the end result is really going to thrill viewers."

Fox made her debut for Digital Sin this summer in My Brother Has a Big Dick. Performances in Tabu Tales: All in the FamilyDad's Point of View, My Brother Has a Big Dick 2 and New Sensations' The Beautiful Solo 3 soon followed. Fox's natural good looks and hardcore sensibilities have quickly established her as a favorite among critics and fans alike.

Meet Aidra has a runtime of 145 minutes and includes an exclusive photo gallery and two bonus scenes starring Vanessa Sixxx and Presley Dawson, respectively.

Digital Sin launched its Meet... series in 2012 as a showcase for then up-and-coming starlet Bonnie Rotten. The success of Meet Bonnie led to the search for the next big name. This year the release of Meet Carter Cruise and Meet Dakota Skye added to the cachet of the series as a launch pad for tomorrow's stars.

The Handie’s Debut Commercial Places Girls in ‘The Friend Zone’

The Handie's Debut Commercial Places Girls in 'The Friend Zone'

Posted Oct 16th, 2014 11:07 AM

LOS ANGELES—The debut commercial for the all-in-one finishing tool for men, The Handie, is now available to view online. The Handie is designed to “Upgrade Your Orgasm,” giving guys the power back and effectively turning the table on the ladies to place them in “The Friend Zone.”

The commercial features popular adult stars Heather Vahn and Khloe Kush. The sexy girls are hanging out in a bedroom when one gets a shocking telephone call from a boyfriend. To her horror, she has been placed in “The Friend Zone” because of The Handie. Yes, it could happen to anyone!

ADVERTISEMENT


To view the commercial, click here.

“Guys know what it’s like when the girl they like puts them in ‘The Friend Zone’ with no shot at being with her romantically,” said Maxx, creator of The Handie. “We decided to have some fun with a commercial that turns the table on girls and lets them know there are now ways to ‘Upgrade Your Orgasm.’”

Heather Vahn said, “I loved shooting a commercial for The Handie. I really am an avid supporter of 'boys toys', and I always buy them for my boyfriends. I find it unfair many sex shops have such a limited supply of male toys; boys can have toys too!

“The Handie is such a cool male tool, that now you won't even need me,” added Vahn. “The commercial is fab! I loved the whole experience and support the product! I would like one to take home and try on my boy … hopefully he doesn't ‘friend zone’ me too!”

A consumer test group was commissioned to weigh the pros and cons of The Handie versus a girlfriend. As the pros for The Handie started piling up—no endless questions about feelings or if the jeans maker her look fat, no Nicholas Sparks movies, no expensive dates without scoring, better stamina, and better orgasms—the focus group quickly deserted their session, taking samples of The Handie. Their findings remain inconclusive.

The Handie is an effective, all-in-one pleasure product for men that does it all and more! It takes the girls out of the equation—and they know it! It’s a girl’s worst nightmare, as its instant pleasure for a guy without all the complicated relationship stuff!

Made from 100 percent skin-safe, durable, food-grade silicone material, The Handie is built to last. The Handie features a bullet vibrator for hitting a man’s sweet spot because everyone loves a good buzz. Its self-lubrication system always keeping things slick, ensuring chaffing is a thing of the past. The glove’s easy-to-clean catcher cup allows for quick disposal of a guy’s little swimmers and washes out with soap and water. Requiring barely any maintenance, The Handie will be ready to go whenever its owners are, unlike complicated to clean tubes and dolls.

Meanwhile, fans can also vote for the first Handie Girl by visiting http://www.thehandie.com/vote/. Among those competing are adult stars Eva Angelina, Scarlet Red, Chloe Amour, Mercedes Carerra, Angelina Chung, Nikki Daniels, Selma Sins, Alex Chance, Liv Aguilera, Mena, Nicole Ferrera, Sasha Heart, Kayla Thompson, Tara Holliday, Sasha Summers, Alaina Kristar, Allie Rae, Adriana Malao, Trinity St. Claire, Noelle Easton, and Nina Elle.

The Handie is in the midst of a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.com. Reward packages are designed to allow supporters first dibs on The Handie upon its release for only $65, $85, or $150 contributions. Supporters of the campaign may also purchase extra votes to help crown The Handie Girl. One hundred votes may be purchased for $100, while 200 votes are only $200.

The Handie Indiegogo.com campaign will run now through Nov. 1.

Desperate Pleasures Now Shipping 'All Fathers Sin'

VAN NUYS, CA — Pure Play Media and Desperate Pleasures ask the question, “If the gods can’t control their desires, how can mortals” with the shipping of All Fathers Sin. A sinful tale of seduction and corruption, the title is the first professionally edited feature release for Desperate Pleasures.

Inked Angels Starlet of the Year nominee and covergirl Halle Von is a blonde revelation in this tale of debauchery and treachery. Judas uses her feminine wiles to seduce without a care. Enraged by her sinfulness, her kin Odin banishes Judas to Earth, allowing her one chance each year to escape her prison by infecting small towns with her insatiable and taboo sexual appetite.

All Fathers Sin also stars Bailey Paige, Vanessa Luna, Emma Evans, Mini Rose, Alyssa Bradyn, and Judas in her very first anal scene. 

“The Desperate Pleasures brand of taboo has evolved before our eyes with more sophisticated production and thoughtful polish, as we see here in All Fathers Sin,” Pure Play Media Sales Representative Mike L. said. “However, what remains unchanged is the raw, seductive heart of forbidden temptations that make these movies so great. All Fathers Sin is now shipping and available order, so give us a call to reserve your copies today!” 

Desperate Pleasures is available exclusively in the United States through Pure Play Media. 

For wholesale information, contact Mike L. at Mike@PurePlayMedia.com or 800-929-3267 (x2224).

AVN Reminds Industry of Deadline for 2015 Trophy Girl Submissions

Posted Oct 16th, 2014 08:53 AM

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—AVN Media Network’s Trophy Girl casting call deadline is nearing for the adult industry’s biggest night—the 2015 AVN Awards Show. Submissions will be accepted until midnight, October 31.

To be considered, female talent must have entered the industry in 2014. Those qualified may tweet their sexiest photos to the official AVN Awards Twitter account, @AVNAwards, with the hashtag #AVNTrophyGirls. Two candidates will be selected to become Trophy Girls.

The ceremonial trophy girls serve as a highly visible and prestigious assignment for rising stars within the industry. The duo is on stage for the duration of the awards show and featured prominently on the show’s cable broadcast.

Hundreds of new performers submitted entries last year and more are expected this year in the hopes of being named trophy girls for the 2015 AVN Awards. This year's winners will follow in the footsteps of the past Trophy Girls, such as Bonnie Rotten, Brett Rossi, Nicole Aniston, Chanel Preston, Teal Conrad, Emily Austin, and Rikki Six.

“I had such a blast as the AVN Trophy Girl. I met some of my favorite adult stars and made some great friends. I'm so honored to be apart of AVN history,” said Emily Austin.

This year’s Trophy Girls will escort talent onstage, as well as assist presenters and the show’s co-hosts, superstar performers Alexis Texas and Tommy Pistol.

The adult industry's biggest extravaganza will be held at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on January 24, 2015 as part of the Adult Entertainment Expo, scheduled for January 21 to 24 at the iconic venue.

The 32nd annual AVN Awards Show will be co-hosted by popular adult stars Alexis Texas and Tommy Pistol, both of whom won big at last year’s show: Texas garnered a Fan Award for Hottest Ass while Pistol was named Best Actor for his turn in BurningAngel’s Evil Head. In addition to entertaining patter from the hosts, the AVN Awards Show also features equal servings of live comedy, music, and dance numbers. And before the show even starts there’s the red carpet pre-show, which draws the biggest stars of the adult industry, all dressed in eye-poppingly sexy ensembles. The AVN Awards Show is the culmination of AVN Week, a series of events produced by AVN Media Network at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, beginning with Internext, followed by the AVN Novelty Expo and the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, and culminating with the AVN Awards Show.

Pa. Supreme Court Justice Ensnared in Public Porn Shaming

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

Pa. Supreme Court Justice Ensnared in Public Porn Shaming

HARRISBURG, Pa.—As the absurd porn scandal continues to play out in Pennsylvania, dragging ever more public officials to an ignominious end to their careers, it is now being revealed that state Supreme Court Justice Seamus McCaffery was also a sender and/or recipient of 230 emails that reportedly contained sexually explicit content.

This latest revelation was made today by the court's Chief Justice, Ronald D. Castille. "In a statement, [Castille] said the analysis found McCaffrey had been a sender or recipient of 2,800 messages unearthed during an internal review by the Attorney General's Office," reported Philly.com. "Of those, 234 contained sexually explicit images or videos."

ADVERTISEMENT


The statement also notes, "No other Supreme Court justice was identified as having sent or received any sexually explicit emails."

But it is the possible fallout for McCaffrey that seems extreme, and in its own way suggests court politics at play in the same way that Philly.com writers Craig R. McCoy and Angela Couloumbis yesterday outlined in detail the extent to which the entire "porngate" episode is the result of a personal/professional squabble between Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane, who has been selectively identifying people involved in sharing email porn, and her arch rival, former state prosecutor Frank Fina.

Indeed, the authors of the article describe the four men who had at that point in time lost their jobs (one more can now be added to the list), as "collateral damage."

Now, Chief Justice Castille seems to have a hair up his ass about McCaffrey, and may seek to have him dismissed from the court. "Even before the scope of McCaffery's involvement became clear," reported Philly.com, "Castille last week had called on his fellow justices to take action against the judge."

The article also states that it was Castille who "asked Kane to share with him any emails that she discovered had been sent or received by judges or judicial employees," and that, "The chief justice met with a technician from her office last Friday—and the analysis released Wednesday was of the images and videos he was shown at that meeting."

But it is the Chief Justice's rationale for being so incensed and also for seeking some sort of official censure of McCaffrey that raises doubts about his sincerity in the matter. According to Philly.com, "Castille has said that any judge who exchanged grossly pornographic material by e-mail might have violated the state's Code of Judicial Ethics and may be subject to discipline," and superficially references "the guidelines in the state Code of Judicial Conduct that prohibit judges, even outside their official judicial actions, 'from doing things that raise questions about their 'integrity.'"

But no one has taken the time to explain precisely why a Supreme Court judge looking at or even sending sexual material to someone else (assuming they are a willing recipient) speaks to his or her integrity as an individual or a justice. Indeed, as far as the Chief Justice is concerned, the issue has nothing to do with whether McCaffrey used work or personal accounts; the affront remains the same.

Philly.com notes that the code "cites jokes that 'demean individuals' based on factors such as gender" as an example of inappropriate behavior, but what that has to do with the content in question is unknown, since none of it has been described to any degree. To the extent that one person's porn is another's erotica, we simply haven't a clue as to the nature of the material that is now destroying careers for no apparent good reason.

Philly.com also reports, "The Supreme Court members can suspend judges, even their own colleagues, for violations, or they can opt to refer infractions to Pennsylvania's Judicial Conduct Board. The board has already opened an investigation into McCaffery's e-mail traffic based on a complaint from a Harrisburg activist."

And they call it the City of Brotherly Love.

APAC Comments on Production Moratorium

APAC Comments on Production Moratorium

Posted Oct 15th, 2014 02:30 PM

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—The Adult Performer Advocacy Committee (APAC) has issued the following statement on the production moratorium announced earlier today by the Free Speech Coalition:

Due to an adult industry performer testing positive for HIV this week, the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee (APAC) requests a three-day industry-wide production hold while doctors perform confirmatory tests. During this period, anyone who has been exposed to the patient within two weeks prior to the patient's last negative test through the time the performer tested positive, will be called to test for HIV. The patient will be re-tested to establish whether the result was a false-positive or if there is need for further testing. APAC will release a statement within three days regarding whether the production hold is called off or if a two-week moratorium is necessary.

ADVERTISEMENT


Due to HIPAA regulations, personal or health information about this patient is not allowed to be released. APAC is asking fellow performers to show compassion towards each other and to our unnamed peer who is currently waiting for the results of their confirmatory test and to abstain from speculating about the patient's identity.

The Adult Performer Advocacy Committee's mission is to support the safety, happiness and well-being of individual performers and our community. Therefore we stand against blaming specific performers for contracting HIV, and we encourage them to take steps to ensure HIV- negative scene partners are not exposed. If any performers impacted by this work-halt need emotional support, a friendly face or a shoulder to cry on, APAC is available to help you through this period.

This request to honor the current production hold is made for the safety of our community as a whole and for performers' individual safety. APAC is requesting that all adult performers honor the call for a three-day production hold and treat each other with compassion and respect during this time.

As performers, it is our responsibility to understand how HIV is transmitted and to show care for other performers. At APAC, we offer resources on HIV and STI education and a private, performer-only platform for performers to support and discuss concerns with each other.

APAC encourages performers to reach out to their existing support systems, and to remember we're all in this together and should be able to lean on each other.

Jessica Drake & Team Wicked Raise Thousands for AIDS Walk LA

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

Consisting of adult performers, industry workers, & fans, Team Wicked walked 10K in support of LA County AIDS organizations

Jessica Drake & Team Wicked Raise Thousands for AIDS Walk LA

Posted Oct 15th, 2014 02:26 PM

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—Team Wicked, led by Wicked Pictures performer and director Jessica Drake, raised thousands of dollars for the 30th Annual AIDS Walk Los Angeles, surpassing its original goal. Accumulating $14,585 in total donations for the October 12 event, Team Wicked ranks as the 15th highest fundraiser in 2014. This year’s 10 kilometer walk marks the fifth consecutive year Drake has reprised her role as a “Star Walker” and the third year she’s organized Team Wicked on behalf of Wicked Pictures; Team Wicked has raised over $53,000 during those three years.

ADVERTISEMENT


 “I love supporting AIDS Walk LA and APLA,” said Jessica Drake. “Over the years as a participant, I’ve seen them make amazing progress helping those with HIV and taking part in research to prevent the spread of the disease as well. After doing the walk alone the first two years, I realized just how much we could accomplish by bringing Team Wicked together, and as always, I am SO proud of the team and SO grateful to Steve and Wicked Pictures for the support. I’m also thankful to everyone who donated their time and/or money. Thank you."

Composed of Drake, Wicked Pictures contract performer Asa Akira, and Wicked Pictures director Brad Armstrong, Team Wicked also included adult industry notables Allie Haze, Kylie Ireland, Victoria Rae Black, Anikka Albrite, Mick Blue, David Lord, Jack Napier, and Steviee Hughes.

 “This was my third AIDS Walk and this year we landed in the Top 15,” said Brad Armstrong. “That's pretty impressive considering we're going up against huge corporations like Toyota and Paramount Pictures. I also think it's a great way for people in the adult business to show commitment to social issues, and I applaud AIDS Walk LA for being open-minded enough to let us participate where other charities have shunned us.”

Steve Orenstein, founder of Wicked Pictures, also praised the team for its fundraising efforts, and thanked Jessica Drake for using her celebrity platform to impact the lives of others.

 “I’m really proud of Team Wicked for coming together to make a difference in the lives of those affected by AIDS and HIV,” said Orenstein. “Jessica uses her voice as a way to spread social consciousness, and the team exists thanks to her. I’m honored to have office staff—and amazing directors and actors, such as Brad and Asa—who continue to donate their time to the walk. The team succeeds because of everyone’s involvement.”

In addition to her charitable work, Jessica Drake is a highly sought after sexual wellness speaker and educator who lectures at universities and leads global seminars and workshops. She is the writer, producer, and director of the video series Jessica Drake's Guide to Wicked Sex, which has received critical acclaim from adult industry authorities including AVN and Fleshbot.com, as well as The Huffington Post.

AIDS Walk Los Angeles has drawn more than a half-million participants, who have collectively raised more than $72 million in its 27 years. The event, which has served as a model of grassroots fundraising and community activism for organizations across the United States, is sponsored by AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA). It is dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by HIV disease, reducing the incidence of HIV infection, and advocating for fair and effective HIV-related public policy. APLA provides care and HIV prevention services throughout Los Angeles. For more information, click here and here.

FSC Announces Call for 3-Day Production Moratorium

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

Call comes after notification from a public health official received about an HIV exposure on an out-of-state set.

FSC Announces Call for 3-Day Production Moratorium

Posted Oct 15th, 2014 12:25 PM

LOS ANGELES—The Free Speech Coalition has just announced a call for a precautionary 3-day suspension of production, as the result of a notification from an unnamed public health official regarding an "HIV exposure on an out-of-state set."

The FSC statement reads in full:

This message is to inform you that a THREE-DAY hold on production is in effect, as of immediately.

This is due to a situation recently brought to the attention of FSC that requires investigation before production can be allowed to continue.

ADVERTISEMENT


We have received notification from a public health department official of HIV exposure on an out-of-state set. In an abundance of caution, we are calling for a three-day hold on production while we evaluate any risk to the performer pool, and determine if a full moratorium is warranted. As with past production holds, we ask that people refrain from speculation until more news is forthcoming, and respect performer privacy. We are currently working with the public health department, the production company, and the performer, and will alert as more information is available.

We appreciate your patience and consideration at this time. If you have questions or need more information, contact info@freespeechcoalition.com.

BBW Model Southern Somer Passes Away

BBW Model Southern Somer Passes Away

Posted Oct 15th, 2014 12:23 PM by Rob Perez

LAS VEGAS—On October 1, BBW model Southern Somer passed away in her sleep at her home in Las Vegas, Nevada. She was 37. A cause of death has not been determined but Somer had been in ill health prior to her death, according to a friend, Paige Reign.

Somer was described by Reign as a person who had a huge heart, made everyone laugh with her Southern wit, and as someone who lived life to the fullest.

“Somer was a free-spirited, kind-hearted woman,” said Reign's husband, Jack Plowher. “I had the pleasure of knowing her for a few years. Eventually she became mine and Paige Reign’s best friend.”

ADVERTISEMENT


Originally from Arkansas, Somer lived in Las Vegas for the past seven years, eventually finding a home within the BBW community two years ago. A popular figure inside the community, Somer had done numerous Clips4Sale scenes, and was best known for her fetish work, interracial and MILF-themed clips. Somer was also scheduled to shoot for Plumper Pass in December.

“Somer was a fiercely loyal friend to all she cared for,” said friend Eliza Allure. “Her life was a gift to her friends. She always made time to listen to her friends. Her passing is a tragedy. She will be missed by a lot of people in and out of the adult industry.”

“Somer was an amazing person,” said Don Asstronut. “I didn't know her too well but she had a very big impact on my life. I never had the chance to shoot with her but we were talking about it and the things she had in mind where amazing. She was very creative. I know others would say she was a very happy, outgoing person. She was always smiling. She [lit] up a room when she walked in.”

A memorial service will be held for Somer on Sunday, October 19 from 3 to 8 p.m. at the Pacific Legend West Clubhouse, located at 1830 N Buffalo Drive in Las Vegas. A memorial fund has also been established for Somer. Those wishing to donate may do so by clicking here.

Fresh Face: Scarlet Red

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

Scarlet Red

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

The Basics
Hometown: "A little town outside Aspen, Colorado."
How old are you? 22
Measurements: 5-foot-9, 130 lbs., 34C, "I'm a size 4 in a dress, pants are size 5. My waist is, like, 22, my hips are, like, 30."
Hair: "Blondish. I call it dead-possum color, but it's going back to blonde. With highlights."
Eyes: "Bluish-green."

New talent Scarlet Red may be vague about her measurements but she has articulate, well-formed opinions about a lot of other things. "I feel that interracial scenes are more open now and it's tough for some people to wrap their head around them. I believe a lot of fans like interracial and when I look at my Twitter I hear 'A lot of interracial scenes.' I like both. I like to even it out and express that we are a multicultural nation."

ADVERTISEMENT


How did you start with this?
I did mainstream clothes and jewelry modeling before, local commercials. A friend was talking about me joining her, but she wouldn't tell me it was porn. She finally told me and I said "Hey, I'll give it a try. I had a 'fuck it' attitude." I've loved it ever since. I did a boy-girl scene and a girl-girl scene with my friend.

What did you do before this?
I went to college in Colorado. Trying to make do.

How many scenes have you done now?
Over 50 but less than 100.

What's the best scene you've done so far?
That's a tough one. I enjoy so much what I do. ... I've enjoyed several. I think my best scene was a Digital Desire shoot.

Who do you want to work with that you haven't worked with yet?
Hmmm. India Summer. Lately. It changes. I like to meet new people.

Do you like working in the adult industry?
I love it. I love how I can sexually challenge myself. I like how I can be expressive and open with it. I think sex is very beautiful and very artistic, so it's a beautiful piece of art. And it's the most natural.

What's the biggest misconception outsiders have of the adult industry?
Some people misread the industry, thinking there's drug use, taking advantage of girls, prostitution, STDs, no tests or anything. I want people to perceive the adult industry as a positive entertainment that everybody uses, every day. It is safe. There are not always drug users. That stereotypical concept they have is wrong. I'd like to change that.

What are your biggest turn-ons?
I like being surprised. I like spontaneous moves. I like my partner to surprise me, make me try something different. In a scene I like to try something different because it may work, but I like to keep control because I think that's what the audience wants.

Describe your dream sexual scenario.
I've said this once before but it hasn't happened so I'm going to say it again. I've wanted to have sex on a canvas with a partner. I want to have a lot of paint on each other and get very sexy and tease each other with the paint, and then you have sex on the canvas and it turns out to be a work of art afterwards.

What three personal items would you take if you were stranded on a desert island?
The love of my life. Water. Food. Generic things I can't live without.

What's the most valuable life lesson you've learned?
Basically, stick to your instincts. Go with your gut. If something is telling me not to do that, I won't do it. If someone next to me is telling me to do that, I gotta listen to myself. Not the person next to me.

How would you spend your last day on earth?
I'd make it the best day on earth. I would do everything on my bucket list. I would do the most courageous, most risk-taking thing I had never done. On my birthday I'm going to go skydiving. Crazy stuff like that. Maybe go scuba diving, in a dark trench. Try something new and exciting. I like to surprise myself, so whatever I'm feeling that day, I'll do.

How would your best friends describe you?
Sweet, caring, generous, compassionate. I feel comfortable in my own skin.

How do you spend your free time?
I like to do artwork. Right now I'm doing a charcoal on canvas of a beautiful woman. She has a pearl pendant and her hair up, kind of in silhouette. She looks really pretty. I'm excited about it. I like watching movies. Comedies. I like thrillers here and there.

If you weren't doing this, what would you like to be doing?
I don't know. I was studying fashion journalism. I would talk about future trends, I would talk about trends repeating themselves. I would talk about avant-garde and Lady Gaga being a little extreme but very creative. Very unconventional, maybe she should make things more conventional for certain events. When she wore that meat outfit, I would say no on that.

Do you have a long-range plan?
No. I live in the moment. I enjoy life as it comes, and I'm enjoying it right now. If something happens that makes my mind think differently and I want to do something else... I don't know if that will come or not. I'm crossing over to mainstream work now. Maybe I'll be directing. Or writing scripts.

Quick Hits

Food you would be able to eat every day: I've always had a thing for ice cream. Mint chocolate chip.

Best concert you've been to: I know one I do want to go to, and I think it will change my life. I would love to see the Lumineers and Mumford & Sons perform together at Red Rocks in Colorado. It's not planned, I just want to see it happen. I think it would change my life.

Pet peeves: I don't like discrimination. Any kind. I like happy, carefree and I don't like it when people are having a really tough day and they drag it around to other people. I feel that everybody has control of their lives, and there's no excuse for that.

One thing you would like to change about yourself: I've learned to accept who I am. But I would like to spend more time with my dog. Have more quality time with my family and be more family-oriented.

What gets you in the mood: Sexual mood? I like sensual, soft, passionate things. Kissing behind my neck, carrying me and lifting me up on the counter, getting hot and steamy no matter where we are.

Is there anything else we should know about you? I'm very artistic, I love the industry, and I hope I can help change people's perception of the industry in a positive, professional way. A lot of people make it out a joke. I want it to look more professional. This is a job. This is entertainment, like mainstream. I've been on good sets and I've been on bad sets. I'd rather everyone be professional.

Above, Scarlet Red in a still from Blondes Go Black (Hard X/Mile High Media)

Jason Reitman Makes a Porno for ‘Men, Women & Children’

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

Jason Reitman Makes a Porno for 'Men, Women & Children'

LOS ANGELES—The reviews for Jason Reitman's drama, Men, Women and Children, which opened earlier this month, are not that great, but one aspect of the movie that is garnering a little extra press is the extent to which Reitman was determined to make the porn sites used in the movie as realistic as possible. He could have just used some real sites in scenes in which his characters are watching online porn, but Reitman told HuffPo Live today that nothing but total authenticity would do. To that end, "His crew actually created a functioning porn site for the characters to use while filming, all the way down to the search function and thumbnails from actual porn videos."

ADVERTISEMENT


It wasn't totally original, though. Reitman did have a well-known site in mind, telling HuffPo's Roy Sekoff, "We had a guy whose job, full-time, was to look at porn ... and find thumbnails so we could create Pornhub pages so that it looked as though someone was searching things and things were coming up. So that guy, for weeks, he just watched porn and came up with thumbnails and titles to clips."

The motivation for going the extra inch was for... what else: character development. "What do we do when we're alone? First, we go online and look up a lot of things and we had to figure out a way to make that cinematic," he told Sekoff. "But there's a lot of sexuality to being alone, whether it's physical or simply looking at stuff."

Verisimilitude was also the goal. "We had to think of the internet as a location," Reitman explained. "Normally in a movie, you have to build a bedroom, a school classroom, a hallway, a restaurant. And we had to do those things. But we spent more time, more money, more man hours building the actual internet that the actors were exploring."

Judging from the roundly negative reviews of this movie, perhaps more time should have been spent building a better screenplay.

Al Bawaba Slideshow Looks at Porn in the Middle East

Al Bawaba Slideshow Looks at Porn in the Middle East

LOS ANGELES—A slideshow by albawaba.com takes a rather rare look at porn use in the Middle East. Somewhat sensationally, the site promises, "This is an exposé of the underground pornographic scene proliferating the Arab world. From gay ‘silver daddies’ popular in Libya to what kind of porn-play Persians get up to on religious holidays, we give you the tidbits tantalizing Arabs and Muslims in the privacy of their own homes. Yallah! The Arab anaconda don’t want some unless you got Wi-fi hun! Brace yourselves for some hard home truths about the porn habits relieving users from regional tensions!"

ADVERTISEMENT


Okay, then.

There are actually only ten slides in the show, but any insight into porn adoption in countries whose media are generally cut off from the rest of the world is of interest. Data points include the ranking of different countries in Google searches for the word "sex," with Pakistan coming in a strong first; the percentage of people from "Muslim majority Arab countries" visiting Israeli porn sites; the prevalence of bestiality in Turkey, Egypt, Pakistan and Morocco; and the busiest day in Iran for visiting porn sites.

Of course, it should come as no surprise to anyone that porn is popular in these countries, despite (or more likely because of) their religious conservatism. It's certainly no surprise to albawaba.com, which giddily reported on "what’s happening between those Egyptian cotton sheets where the action is intensely internet."

Morality In Media Mounts Anti-Porn Campaign in High Schools

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

Reports of Porn War's End May Be Premature

Morality In Media Mounts Anti-Porn Campaign in High Schools

JESUSLAND—Despite Josh Israel's excellent report on Morality in Media's declining revenues, it seems the old censors aren't quite ready to give up the ghost yet—and why would they have to, if ignorant public school officials are inviting the group to proselytize to students regarding that non-existent "disease," porn addiction?

ADVERTISEMENT


In late September, MiM's sister organization, "Fight The New Drug," sent its "creative director" Kyson Dana to propagandize to about 3,000 students, grades 8 through 12, at four Washington County, Utah high schools—and he started by comparing viewing nudity and sexually explicit content to the physical effects of drugs and alcohol.

After admitting that when humans experience "something good and pleasurable," hormones such as dopamine, epinephrine and serotonin are released which make people feel better, Dana segued to the claim that, "Drugs hijack that part of the brain and force the chemicals to be released in unnatural and unhealthy levels so much that your brain can actually gain a change adapter [???] to rewire itself. In order to take in all these chemicals, over time things that you used to enjoy doing, like reading or ballet dancing, can no longer cut it anymore."

And what else can "hijack the brain" and cause it "to rewire itself"? Why porn, of course! The fact that there are no scientific studies that have found any significant difference between viewing porn and watching one's favorite TV show or eating a nice thick steak means nothing to zealots like Dana, who "shared videos and stories about drug and pornography addicts."

And if all those "addict" videos weren't enough, there's even scientific stuff—like a 1951 study by Nikolaas Tinbergen and D. Magnus, which Dana claimed showed that male butterflies could be fooled into being attracted to pictures of female butterflies rather than actual female butterflies themselves. What Dana didn't mention, of course, was that once the males tried to mate with the pictures, they quickly abandoned them and turned to the real females—just as most humans would rather spend time with people they're attracted to rather than adult movies or photos.

But that simple fact means nothing to Dana.

"With pornography, everything is fake," Dana said. "It takes three days to shoot [a pornographic film]. Plastic surgery—it is not real. They are going for the cardboard instead of the real, live thing."(Wow! Guess a lot of rich folks and celebrities are going to regret having had those facelifts and tummy-tucks.)

And what would an anti-porn lecture be without bringing one of Shelley Lubben's acolytes into the game?

"I speak from experience that there are victims and survivors who have been drugged and forced into this ugliness against their wills," said the woman, who refused to be identified or even allow her face to be viewed, in a video. "I realize that the statement flies in the face of the mainstream mono-thought, stereotypical mentality that porn is something women choose, or 'she likes it,' 'she asked for it,' 'she chose that'—might be true to some, but most are coerced into it."

Needless to say, the Washington County School Board didn't feel any need to allow its students to hear anyone with a different, more factual perspective—someone who, for instance, could "speak from experience" about how her co-workers in porn are all there voluntarily, how many of them actually like having sex, and how well they're paid for such performances. Instead, they got more of the unidentified woman (who may, of course, never actually have set foot on an adult movie set) claim that she was "drugged before each pornographic shooting with amnesic [sic], a paralyzing drug, pain blockers, or a combination of all of them."

But lies like those aren't reserved solely for Utah. Washington, D.C.'s WUSA-TV Channel 9 decided to interview another anti-porn zealot, former adult photographer Donny Pauling, fresh from assuring the attendees at the Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation 2014 Summit last May that Duke University student Belle Knox couldn't possible be as "empowered" by porn as she claimed to have been.

For Pauling, nobody gets into adult entertainment work because he/she really wants to—and that's tantamount to that person being a victim of sex trafficking!

"She comes in, she's already spent the money in her mind," Pauling claimed. "She does whatever I ask. Then she has to do more. And do more and do more to keep getting that money. How’s that not sex trafficking?"

(Um... because it's not essentially different than a garment piece-worker who increases her efficiency and turns out more and more garments during her shift so she gets paid more?)

It was hard to correlate Pauling's jaundiced view of the adult industry with the reality that industry members are familiar with.

"What’s appealing about a girl that’s curled up in a fetal position in a corner sucking her thumb because her mind is so blown by what she’s just done to herself that she doesn’t know how to handle it?" he asked, apparently rhetorically since there was no one present to challenge his fantasy. "Because that’s what porn is."

No, Donny, it isn't. Porn is a bunch of people not unlike yourself (though perhaps significantly more honest) who are hired to do a job like millions of others, except that adult industry jobs can involve people engaging in pleasurable sex with each other.

And speaking of honesty, guess what Pauling's been doing since he left his adult industry job: "Internet marketing for car dealers"!

Way to go, Donny!

Yale Seeks to Help People Reduce Excessive Porn Use

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

Yale Seeks to Help People Reduce Excessive Porn Use

STUDYLAND—Yale researchers put 21 questions before 1,298 people who all admitted to watching various amounts of porn in an attempt to isolate effective methods for curtailing excessive pornography usage.

According to Yale Daily News, "The study, which will be published [in] the January edition of Addictive Behaviors, found that pornography users who had not previously tried to cut down on usage had higher levels of self-efficacy—self-confidence in their ability to follow through on a specific task—than those who had tried to curb the habit multiple times. Likewise, participants who were categorized as 'hypersexual' had lower self-efficacy than those who were categorized as 'non-hypersexual.'"

ADVERTISEMENT


One of the lead authors, Shane Kraus, a postdoctoral fellow at the Yale School of Medicine, indicated that he thought the results could be used by people seeking to reduce their porn use without having to forgo it altogether, and said, per YDN, that "researchers applied ideas and strategies from work on traditional substance use disorders."

Each of the questions put before the respondents was, according to YDN, "a strategy participants could use to decrease their own pornography usage," with users rating "their confidence from 0 percent ('Not At All Confident') to 100 percent ('Completely Confident') in using each strategy successfully. Strategies ranged from 'record the date and the length of time you spent watching porn after each session' to 'do not keep a large stash of porn available' to 'use a computer only when someone else close by can see the monitor.' Kraus said that these strategies were drawn from his experiences as a clinical psychiatrist, and mirror harm reduction strategies.

"After administering the initial 21-item questionnaire,," the article continued, "the researchers dropped 13 items that received extremely high self-efficacy ratings, overlapped significantly with other items or were not true self-control mechanisms. The questionnaire’s remaining eight items were used to assess participants’ confidence in their ability to cut down on porn usage."

While the Yale researchers indicate that the results could be used right away as "a new tool for scientists studying disordered pornography use," other scientists indicated to YDN that the questionnaire is actually a first step in a complicated process.

“It’s a questionnaire design study, so it’s not particularly making any strong claims," said Nicole Prause, a research scientist at UCLA. "In general I like the broad approach when people don’t make these strong statements. I’m always concerned when people jump in and talk about sex addiction, as if it were a thing that exists when it clearly does not have good support and certainly isn’t in any diagnostic manuals.”

Lead author Carolyn Tompsett, a professor of psychology at Bowling Green State University, countered that they do not refer to pornography as either an addiction or a disorder, but told Yale Daily News, “For some people, [pornography] can be destructive and maybe [they] need some help to reduce their behaviors. Whatever you want to call it, if it’s negatively impacting their life, then they probably need some help.”

Prause, who, as AVN has previously reported, has herself co-authored (and authored) studies critical of the "pornography addiction model," told YDN that "because individuals often attempt to reconcile their own behavior with what they report in studies, she wished to see the study bolstered by performance data, with participants actually seeing whether these strategies worked, and reporting back."

Co-author Kraus said he, too, "was interested in having the study replicated with participants who were actively seeking treatment, while Tompsett said she wanted to see if participants with high self-efficacy would actually reduce porn use."

Interview: Kelly Shibari’s Big Year on Camera and Off

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

Posted Oct 14th, 2014 01:30 PM by Rob Perez

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

When it comes to adult performers who have rebranded themselves, Kelly Shibari is a successful case study. Over the past eight years she has gone from being a plus-size performer to a leading marketing/PR professional. The past year especially has been “surreal,” according to Shibari, who has worked on a number of critically acclaimed projects. In addition to performing in Jessica Drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Plus Size (Wicked Pictures) and the star showcase Meet Kelly (Digital Sin), she was also the first plus-size performer on the cover of Penthouse Forum and was “interviewed by Margaret Cho, for god’s sake,” Shibari said. Overall it has been a good year for the award-winning performer, during which she saw many projects come to fruition.

ADVERTISEMENT


Although she has been producing some of her strongest work, speculation arose—perhaps fueled by her growing activity in the PR and marketing arena—that the 42-year-old would consider retiring from performing all together. While she describes her non-performing workload as “amazingly overwhelming,” Shibari tells AVN that she is merely taking a break from performing for the time being. “I just got signed on to be a brand ambassador for Sportsheets and their plus size line,” Shibari said. “I work with Shibari Wands; I work with three or four other companies on my own. And then I also have freelance work from Lainie Speiser, who is a publicist for a bunch of performers based out of New York. I also do freelance work for Fine Ass Marketing. So I feel very lucky having the amount of work that I do.

“I have noticed within the past few months that trying to juggle that with performing has been a little difficult,” Shibari continued. “I did Plus Size with Jessica Drake for Wicked Pictures and that took a few weeks. And we just wrapped my star showcase with Digital Sin a couple of months ago. So when you take four days off to go and perform and then you’re off doing promotional work to promote the product you’ve been in, those are several hours in the day that you can’t devote to the marketing of the clients that you have. I’m really just taking a performer hiatus between now and AVN just to kind of figure out what my schedule is like and how I can balance the two, and see if performing is something I want to continue doing. Maybe the PR work is taking up so much of my time that performing really isn’t my real job anymore. I may want to get into directing; there are a couple of projects I have in mind that I’ll be pitching over the next few months to do hopefully next year.”

Shibari considers herself lucky that the work she currently does behind the scenes allows her to stay in the industry. “It’s so nice I’ve been able to transition into this. I can technically stay in the industry whether I’m a performer or not and it’s something that a lot of performers have a hard time doing. They don’t have an exit strategy. I always knew when I got in I would eventually stop performing because I didn’t get in until I was in my mid-thirties. So no matter what happens I now have a marketable skill that still allows me to go to all the events, still go to the AVN Awards, still work inside the industry, and that’s awesome because I love the industry.”

“In addition to great and quick writing skills, she brings a wealth of industry knowledge,” said Chris Ruth, vice president of Fine Ass Marketing. “Having experience as a performer, publicist and producer really puts her on a different playing field.”

Adult industry publicist Lainie Speiser concurred. “Kelly is as loyal as they come, and the smartest thing I ever did after I decided to branch out on my own was to approach her and ask her if she wanted to join ‘Team Lainie’ and assist me in my new business. It wasn’t only because she is a top-notch writer and editor for press releases or that she knows everyone in this business, but she gives great advice. She’s very detailed oriented and [treats] this business as a business, which suits someone like me fine.”

Still better known as a performer, Shibari hopes Meet Kelly will introduce her to a wider mainstream audience unfamiliar with her work in BBW porn.

Shibari performs the most aggressive acts of her career in Meet Kelly, which was directed by Eddie Powell—including her first mainstream anal scene. (Shibari performed anal with fans in the independently produced Kelly Shibari Is Overloaded.) “Mr. Pete’s name came up and I had never had the chance to work with Mr. Pete. So I texted him and said, ‘Hey, have you worked with first-time anal performers before?’ And he said ‘Yeah, I’ve broken in dozens of girls.’ I texted him back and asked him if he would be interested and he said, ‘Hell yeah!’ So that was the very first scene that we shot.” In addition to Mr. Pete, Meet Kelly features Shibari performing girl/girl anal with plus-size newcomer Scarlet LaVey, a boy/boy/girl with Mick Blue and Ramon Nomar, and a boy/girl with James Deen. “My scene with James Deen was very awkward to get started because he and I have been friends for so long and we never worked together. But once we got down to business we were both pros. I think as far as the movie is concerned, people who don’t know me or my work will get to see the dorky, funny ... real human side [of me].”

“Kelly [is] very professional ... kind ... genuine,” Powell said about working with Shibari on Meet Kelly. “I think what makes Kelly sexy is her approachability [and] her demeanor and attitude, not only toward the industry but the people in it and around it.”

Wicked contract performer Jessica Drake expressed similar views about working with Kelly on Plus Size. “I knew that Kelly would be a great choice. I had admired her for quite some time and appreciated her dedication and passion for everything she sets her mind to and this project was no different. She was great on set, and helped our talent feel comfortable at each and every stage of the production.”

PlusSize was more or less a film that needed to be made because an educational sex-ed film for plus-size people didn’t exist before. “All these sex-ed companies and groups that put out books and DVDs never talk about plus-size sex when such a large segment of the American population is plus-size. You’re basically saying, ‘You’re not attractive enough to talk about.’ Something needs to be out there that exists so people can go, ‘That’s something I want to learn a little bit more about.’”

“I think Kelly has elevated the BBW genre a lot,” Speiser said. “Kelly, with her natural grace and class and sheer natural beauty, has changed the way people see big girls in porn forever. Kelly has elevated the business where the BBWs can now be thought of in the same class as performers who are a size 0.”

 “I think she's a great spokeswoman period,” added Drake. “The fact that she also represents the plus-size community only adds to everything she does, and I think that carries over to the mainstream world as well.”

“Kelly is a role model for plus-size women and also for women in general, and how they feel about their bodies,” continues Speiser. “At any size she shows you can rock it and make it your own. I admire her because she wants to be whatever size she is for herself, not for anybody else. “

With Shibari’s star shining in front of and behind the camera, giving her exposure to new audiences and clients, people will finally get a chance to meet the real Kelly Shibari.

On the Set: Rotten Does DeNiro in Dreamzone’s ‘Cape Fear XXX’

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

Rotten Does DeNiro in Dreamzone's 'Cape Fear XXX'

LOS ANGELES—It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Robert DeNiro star in Cape Fear (the 1991 version), and even longer since we’ve seen the 1962 version with Robert Mitchum—but when you’ve got the “jones,” as Bonnie Rotten has, for watching DeNiro go all psycho on his unsuspecting former attorney (and family) for hiding evidence during DeNiro’s rape trial, that’s the sort of jones that sometimes leads to a XXX homage to the real thing. As it has here, with a project helmed by AVN’s 2014 Performer of the Year for Dreamzone Entertainment.

ADVERTISEMENT


“I really love Robert DeNiro,” Bonnie told us, “and I thought this is a really great movie that he did, and he’s such a creep and so crazy in it, and I figured, ‘Hey, I’m a creep and I’m crazy so let’s do it!’ But in a good way, a nice creepy way.”

In the porn version of the story, though, there’s just a bit of gender-bending going on. For example, Bonnie herself plays DeNiro’s Max Cady character, while Chanel Preston gets Nick Nolte’s former role as the unethical attorney, with Alec Knight as her husband and Jodi Taylor as their daughter, all of whom Bonnie gets to terrorize. Also on board in various roles are Tommy Pistol, Evan Stone and Luna Star, plus a couple of familiar XXX names in unfamiliar roles: director Jordan Septo as a judge, and director Glenn King as Bonnie’s attorney. And in keeping with the original film, part of the action in the homage will take place on a sailboat in the Channel Islands off the California coast.

AVN was on hand for one of the less crucial but nonetheless exhilarating scenes, where Evan Stone, as private investigator Claude, seeks to interrogate Chanel’s maid, Graciella, played by the up-and-coming Luna Star. It begins with Evan, gun in hand, entering Luna’s bedroom to question her—at gunpoint if necessary—but then the tables are turned, the gun is fumbled, and it’s Luna who gets to give the orders—and the first thing she wants is a good fuck from Evan’s outsized appendage.

The scene begins with Luna gnawing on Evan’s knob to get him in the mood—after all, she’s holding a gun on him—but that soon gives way to some muff-diving that has Luna in ecstasy. Before long, Evan’s taking Luna in spoon position, but she wants even more stimulation, so she rides him in both directions before submitting to some piledriver. The scene finishes with doggie, and Luna’s soon getting her face and tits covered with Evan’s splooge.

Cape Fear XXX is now shipping from Dreamzone Entertainment. Click here to see the SFW trailer on AVN.com.

Girlfriends Films Managing Operations, Distro for Triangle Films

Girlfriends Films Managing Operations, Distro for Triangle Films

Posted Oct 14th, 2014 08:45 AM

VALENCIA, Calif.—Girlfriends Films is now managing operations and distribution for Triangle Films, one of the premier brands in lesbian erotica. The entire Triangle Films library is available through Girlfriends Films Distribution. In addition to previous titles, Girlfriends Films will release two new movies from Triangle Films in late 2014-early 2015.

Triangle Films owner Kathryn Annelle, who began her career in adult entertainment with Girlfriends Films, commented, “I got my start in the business about nine or ten years ago shooting for Dan [O’Connell]. We were close then and have remained so over the years.”

ADVERTISEMENT


In January 2014, Annelle suffered the tragic loss of Susan “Shoosh” Karpman, her partner in life and business.

“The death of Shoosh brought so many changes to my life and the company,” continued Annelle. “It was a natural choice to call on Dan and Moose when I needed help. They both continue to support Triangle Films and me, as I go through this. I look forward to a long and prosperous relationship, as they take over the day to day operation of Triangle Films.”

Annelle founded Triangle Films in 2006 and later brought Shoosh on as a business partner. The producers of numerous top selling lesbian movies, the studio’s titles include Justine Joli Lost, Her Little Secret, When Ginger Met Nina and River Rock Women’s Prison, which garnered accolades from the Feminist Porn Awards, and nominations from AVN and Cinesploitation.com.

Girlfriends Films founder Dan O’Connell states, “It is always nice for Girlfriends Films to pull in a distribution deal with another producer, however, this one is especially sweet given our long relationship, as well as all the time we spent together in the quest to create great lesbian footage.  Triangle Films is a great brand with a great product, and we are selling for a wonderful person.”

According to O’Connell, Annelle was the first paid crewmember ever employed by Girlfriends Films, back in 2004.  “Kathryn joined Girlfriends Films in its most formative time period and was definitely a factor in our early success and getting us past the point where other young companies didn’t survive,” states O’Connell.

A recently retired U.S. Marine, Annelle started with Girlfriends Films while the company was still a part-time gig for O’Connell, who had a full-time day-job. “She had a quick smile, easy laugh, great attitude, the character and work ethic of a Marine, and she was a lesbian,” explained O’Connell. “For me, those traits easily trumped her lack of experience with a video camera. She could learn that, but she had a set of qualities that can't be taught and are nearly impossible to find.  She was and is extremely likable, and the girls felt very safe with her on set.

“We were doing two-camera shoots in those days,” O’Connell added.”I've always limited the number of on-set personnel to the number of cameras (we currently have a crew of three, and each person runs a camera).  So, for a couple of years, every GFF shoot consisted of Kathryn, two performers, and myself.  Most of the shoots took place at my house in Encino.  Crazy stuff happened and we always had a lot of fun and laughs.”

Over the past few years, Girlfriends Films has grown by leaps and bounds under the leadership of Dan O’Connell and Moose. The company went from producing award-winning lesbian content, to also distributing movies for other studios, developing a successful membership site, and launching a broadcast channel on Hustler TV. The moves contributed to Moose’s receipt of the 2011 XBIZ Executive Leadership award, O’Connell being named the 2012 XBIZ Man of the Year, and the studio receiving AVN’s 2013 Best Company Image award.

Retailers and distributors interested in ordering Triangle Films’ titles may contact David Diamond at ddiamond@girlfriendsfilms.com.

Popular Men’s Toy Autoblow 2 Extends Reach To Europe, U.K.

Popular Men’s Toy Autoblow 2 Extends Reach To Europe, U.K.

Posted Oct 13th, 2014 11:56 AM

BEIJING—Autoblow 2, which has taken the world by storm as men’s new favorite sex toy, has now jumped the pond to Europe and the U.K., with the opening of its distribution headquarters in London and an established website, autoblow2.co.uk.

Recently exalted as the fastest-selling male sex toy in America, the expansion to Europe and the U.K. marks a swift transition into the next stage of growth for the hands-free male stroker, which has only been on the market for three months.

“Now that we keep stock in the U.K., we can ship anywhere in Europe within a matter of days,” said Autoblow 2 founder and designer Brian Sloan. “Most importantly, our customers won't face any embarrassing situations or have to pay any additional tax.”

Privacy issues with customs and soaring demand for the product in Europe put Sloan and his team into working long hours to make sure everyone in Europe and the U.K. has the opportunity to purchase what Wired Magazine (UK) has called “a sex tech toy that will blow your mind.”

“German and Swiss customs in particular were really strict, forcing our customers to go to a customs office and open the parcel in front of an officer,” said Sloan. “Most men prefer to keep their masturbation habits private, so this created several hundred uncomfortable situations.”  

Autoblow 2 initially gained fame with its successfully Indiegogo crowdfunding project, and the pleasure device does not disappoint, delivering 100 percent satisfaction with an industrious motor, three pulsating speeds and three interchangeable sleeves. Autoblow 2 retails for $150 and is now officially easier than ever for men to get their hands on.

“The men of Europe and the U.K. can now begin living lives where blowjobs are no longer limited by someone else's stamina or willingness,” said Sloan. “They can take matters into their own hands—with our machine, of course.”

Kink.com Hires Eric Paul Leue as Dir. of Sexual Health & Advocacy

Kink.com Hires Eric Paul Leue as Dir. of Sexual Health & Advocacy

Posted Oct 13th, 2014 08:48 AM

SAN FRANCISCOKink.com announced that the company has hired Eric Paul Leue, a longtime advocate for sexual health and sexual rights, to be the Director of Sexual Health and Advocacy.

 “Eric brings a fair-minded and judgment-free approach to the health and safety of performers,” said Peter Acworth, founder of Kink.com “He understands that sexual minority populations, whether adult performers or members of the kink and LGBTQ communities, often face stigma. With him, we will work to develop relationships with health providers, improve safety protocols and create educational programs for our performers, so they understand their rights, on and off set.”

ADVERTISEMENT


Leue and Acworth first spoke during the hearings for the controversial AB 1576 condom legislation, and found common ground.

 “We both saw the need to develop regulations that would maximize the safety of the performers, but not infringe on their rights," Acworth said. "He had many ideas, and it made sense to bring him on board to help execute them. He’s well-respected for his work both in sexual health sectors and in the kink community.”

Leue, who won the Eagle LA Mr. Leather and Mr. LA Leather titles earlier this year, has been an outspoken activist on an international level for over a decade, and is currently nominated for a WEGO Health Activist Hero 2014 Award. Leue has become one of the most vocal driving forces in support of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), which could help protect performers on and off-set. While the adult industry has not seen a workplace transmission of HIV in over a decade, Leue says one of his first initiatives is to broaden the discussion.

 “Prevention and sexual health is a matter of personal choice; what works for one doesn’t necessarily work for the next. If we truly care about performer health, we need to continue our efforts for stigma-free sexual education and focus on a real life approach: making all options available, and enabling people to make informed decisions about their health. The adult industry has been an early adopter and successful forerunner of this way of thinking.”

In his role at Kink, Leue will split his time between San Francisco and Los Angeles to work alongside existing efforts, be an additional resource especially for off-set prevention efforts, and build stronger ties between community health leaders and the adult community. He will also work for timely and responsible legislation to protect the well-being and personal rights of adult performers.

 “As a family man and leather man, I have a deep understanding of the realities of sexually progressive communities, and how misinformed assumptions about our sexuality, education, and health needs by others can actually harm us, even when their intentions are good," Leue said. "I believe that direct, open-minded and honest communication and collaboration with affected communities is the only way to advance the conversation, not only in regards to performer health, but also the general public.”

For more information, email Mike Stabile, Media Relations, Kink.com, or call 415-496-5493.

Alabama Pastor Could Have Used a Little Sex Ed

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

Alabama Pastor Could Have Used a Little Sex Ed

MONTGOMERY, Ala.—As most people know, the Religious Right isn't very big on sex education. Real sex education, that is, rather than the phony "abstinence ed" that's still being taught in many of the nation's schools—and even when real sex ed is taught, it's apparently being done too late in the kids' curricula, with a recent CDC report finding that more than 80 percent of kids between the ages of 15 and 17 didn't have any sex ed before they started having intercourse—and popping out babies at the rate of 1,700 per week.

ADVERTISEMENT


"CDC researchers, analyzing birth data from the National Vital Statistics System and adolescent health behavior data from the National Survey of Family Growth, found that one in four teens from this age group had never spoken with a parent about sex," reported TheDailyBeast.com. "While 90 percent reported using some form of contraception, most relied on the least effective methods," which are defined by Planned Parenthood as simply using spermicide or "fertility awareness," better known as the "rhythm method."

Of course, far right organizations are against any form of sex ed whose focus isn't abstinence, even though a 2004 report issued by Rep. Henry Waxman's office found that of the 13 most commonly used sexual abstinence "education" programs, 11 contained false and misleading information about both contraceptives and abortion—and most mixed science with religion in an attempt to dissuade the kids from fooling around.

But as recently as this week, the ultra-conservative Family Research Council was still pushing abstinence education as a useful tool in helping kids avoid contracting STDs, quoting a CDC report that estimated that there are nearly 20 million new cases of STD infection reported each year in the U.S.

"Thanks to the Left's policies of sexual liberalism, America is dealing with an explosion of sexually transmitted infections—with most instances cropping up in young men and women aged 15-25," the FRC email dated October 8 stated. "The epidemic is all the more shocking when you consider that every 20 million cases cost the American health care system an additional $16 billion in direct medical costs."

Never missing a chance to bash Obama, the email continued, "Of course, this administration—which gives pennies to abstinence education—has only perpetuated the problem. The President would rather teach kids to manage the risks (with unreliable birth control) than avoid them altogether—driving Americans to pay for the real-world consequences of the 'just do it' mentality...  Can we stop this epidemic? Yes, we can, but it would require a new focus on an old approach: saving sex for marriage."

Yeah, that'll work—because surely none of those "abstinence ed" kids are having sex or birthing babies. Ri-i-i-ight!

In fact, according to the CDC, "About 50.5 million current infections are in men while 59.5 million are in women, for a total of 110 million Americans with STDs at any given time," the eight most common of which are chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, genital herpes, HIV, HPV, syphilis and trichomoniasis.

So who needs sex ed, right?

Well, one person who probably should have had a little of it is Juan Demetrius McFarland, who until recently was the pastor of the Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama.

"McFarland didn't hold back when he revealed to worshipers at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church on Sept. 14 that he contracted HIV in 2003 and discovered in 2008 he had AIDS," reported WSFA 12 News, which said that several church members had contacted the station about the situation.

But that's not all: "In a resolution read aloud at the church, leaders shared, and Pastor McFarland confirmed to WSFA 12 News, that he admitted to drug use and mishandling of church funds" and "that he had knowingly engaged in adultery in the church building with female members of Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church while knowingly having AIDS."

Transmitting a sexually transmitted disease, by the way, is a Class C misdemeanor in Alabama, but as of this writing, McFarland has yet to be charged with a crime.

"I believe that he should be put on trial," an unnamed church member told WSFA 12 News. "Go to court and let the judge decide if he should go to jail or not. We tend to sweep things under the rug, especially if they're the leader. It's like oh, no, please let's not get this out but I think after this that they will have more discussions on HIV and AIDS."

Yeah—but if the "church fathers" have anything to do with it, all that discussion will be about why people shouldn't have sex out of wedlock, despite the fact that in one recent survey, 35 percent of Christians admitted to having had one marital affair, and 19 percent had three or more. And they'll still oppose anything more than "abstinence education"—something that if Pastor McFarland ever got, certainly didn't "take" very well.

Pictured: Who else?

Kink.com: We’re Shifting Focus to Become a Lifestyle Brand

We're Shifting Focus to Become a Lifestyle Brand

Posted Oct 10th, 2014 04:34 PM

SAN FRANCISCO—Kink.com today announced that it would be shifting direction away from some of its more extreme shoots to focus on a broader audience. In the past year, the company has expanded beyond traditional recorded porn to live events like tours, workshops and parties.

“We’ve been moving in this direction over the past year, and we’ve had many discussions about our company and its mission,” said Kink.com founder Peter Acworth,. “We’ve seen tremendous growth in our workshops and educational elements, as well as our bar, and thought that it was time for us to refocus our priorities.”

ADVERTISEMENT


Two of the company’s sites will no longer be produced; another will be rebranded to better keep with the company mission statement.

“While they were very popular, we have decided to move away from some of our more extreme products," added Acworth. "This entails ceasing to shoot Public Disgrace and Bound in Public, which incorporate audience members and extras, and rebranding HardCoreGangBangs as FantasyGangBangs.

“These changes are taking effect because we aim to refocus on our mission statement of demystifying and celebrating alternative sexualities," he continued. "While these products were highly structured behind the scenes, we felt they did not always convey the negotiated and consensual nature of BDSM as it is actually safely practiced in the real world.  In some instances, the content could confuse the uninitiated viewer.

“After almost two decades in the business," concluded Acworth. "we’re looking to grow in ways that return to our original mission, and so we’re shifting our energies to things like Kink University, enhancing the social aspects of our websites, events in our community center, and adding the ability to buy kink-branded BDSM gear on our sites. In short, we are aiming for Kink.com to become a lifestyle brand. With the mainstreaming of kink as evidenced by the huge popularity of 50 Shades of Grey, we feel there is an opportunity to serve a wider customer base in the future.”
