Troubled By Menstrual Pain? Foria's Got a Cure: Pot Suppositories

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off on Troubled By Menstrual Pain? Foria's Got a Cure: Pot Suppositories

Pot Suppositories

GRASS VALLEY, Calif.—Time sure flies when you're having fun, doesn't it? It seems like yesterday—but was in fact 2014—when we first wrote about then-new company Foria's sexual aid products, which at that time were limited to THC-infused lube which, when sprayed on a clit, is supposed to bring about greater sexual enjoyment.

But now the company has doubled its product line with Foria Relief, which AlterNet's Kali Holloway described as "a THC-infused suppository that's come to be known as the 'weed tampon'," adding that, "The company says it won't get you—or your vagina—high, but it might be the cure for what menstrually ails you."

ADVERTISEMENT


Interestingly, it's not as if using pot for cramps is anything new. The study "Cannabis Treatments in Obstetrics and Gynecology: A Historical Review" by Ethan Russo, M.D., which Holloway references, includes the news that, "women may have begun using the drug to treat cramps as early as the 9th century. A translation of an Arab text from that time says that women used the juice of cannabis seeds to 'treat migraine, calm uterine pains, and prevent miscarriage.' Further examples appear in texts from the 11th century and 13th century in Persia and a Chinese text from 1596, which says women used cannabis flowers for 'menstrual disorders.' Perhaps the most notable historical example is that of Queen Victoria, who was reportedly prescribed cannabis during her menstrual cycle each month by her doctor, Sir John Russell Reynolds."

Also, in Russo's book, The Handbook of Cannabis Therapeutics: From Bench to Bedside, the physician reports several articles and studies from as early as 1891 also lauding the beneficial effects THC has on cramps and other gynecological problems.

The Foria website also includes testimonials from several women who've used the product and gotten relief of their cramps from it.

"It took about forty-five minutes of laying in the fetal position before I realized that my suffering had gradually subsided," wrote Gabrielle Korn. "I sat up, in wonderment. Instead of stabbing pain, I felt a weird sense tranquility, like my uterus had done some deep breathing exercises. ... About an hour later, my girlfriend came over, and by that time, I was feeling great. I don’t think I was necessarily stoned, but I was definitely extra giggly and being fully weird, which revealed itself in various moments like when I decided to tell her that the inanimate object she most reminds me of is a banana (pronounced, accidentally, ba-NAYNA!!!)."

Foria Relief is available at various dispensaries in California and Colorado, and for those with medical marijuana accessibility in California, Foria Relief is also available by mail to members of Foria's Collective, which can be joined here.

Candy.adult Launches From Creators of PornStarTweet

Posted May 03rd, 2016 05:01 PM

LAS VEGASPornStarTweet.com and its sister platforms on Tuesday announced the final beta tests for their social media and viral experimental site, Candy.adult, are complete and the platform is fully launched.

The creators said Candy.adult offers consumers an interactive platform for news, gossip, events, appearances, trailers, lists and quizzes specifically focused on adult entertainment. Candy kicked off its Beta testing with its “Worst Dressed” coverage of the 2016 AVN Award Red Carpet. Consumers are encouraged to contribute to the site as well by creating lists and quizzes about their favorite adult entertainment topics, stars, websites and movies.

“Candy is a new matrix in consumer focused viral platforming,” said CEO Pete Housley. “We’ve been testing for some time with industry professionals as well as consumers. Not surprisingly, the engagement and view rate of news and media as well as retention/returning users is simply staggering. Consumers look for interactivity, not just boring news items. Candy gives them everything they want.”

For industry professionals Candy.adult was designed "to allow new ways to put news and information in the view of consumers" as marketers can engage with end users directly to post their content which is then pushed out through the PornStarTweet network of social media accounts to more than 750,000 followers and friends.

“We invited industry publicists to test Candy and the response has been great," Housley said. “Future thinking PR professionals see the old method of writing a release and putting it out on the ‘wire’ and hoping that a writer sees it and thinks it worthy of a story—gone. Consumers are looking for news with a side of entertainment. Candy gives marketers new tools to engage consumers ever more hungry for entertainment.” 

Candy.adult (which also answers on Candy.porn, Candy.xxx, and Candy.sex) absorbed news and gossip platform, Tattle.xxx, acquired by the PST Networks in 2013.

For advertisers, the Candy platform offers paid traditional static/rotating banner and background placements, in-line banner placements through interactive content; it also incorporates pre-roll video advertising on most of the videos on the platform. 

“Candy was designed for both the grassroots marketer as well as the well funded ad placement buyers—if you have no budget, limited budget or unlimited budget, Candy offers some very unique ways to get consumers to pay attention to your message,” said Denise Kraft, editor-at-large for the site.

Consumers and industry professionals can sign up for an account to create content on Candy here. For more information contact Kraft at denise@candy.adult.

FSC: 'Weinstein Admits Using Cal/OSHA to Target Political Opponents'

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

'Weinstein Admits Using Cal/OSHA to Target Political Opponents'

Posted May 03rd, 2016 03:44 PM

LOS ANGELESEric Paul Leue, Executive Director of the Free Speech Coalition, issued the following statement regarding Cal/OSHA's recent decision to levy several large, new fines against San Francisco-based Kink.com over Kink’s long-held policy of allowing the performers themselves to choose whether or not to use condoms:

Since 2009, Michael Weinstein has filed over 150 Cal/OSHA complaints against adult companies, corrupting a government authority in his personal vendetta against those who dare oppose his antiquated understanding of sexual health rights. The Cal/OSHA complaints system was designed to empower workers and their unions who need to alert the state about dangerous conditions in their work environment. Weinstein is abusing that very system to harass performers and producers who oppose mandates limiting their reproductive rights.

ADVERTISEMENT


Michael Weinstein, a proponent of a statewide ballot measure that would mandate condoms in adult films, regardless of a performer's preference, announced in December that he had filed several complaints against Kink, after videos without condoms were viewed. (No performers were alleged injured in the complaints.)

Leue noted that Weinstein has a long history of using the Cal/OSHA system for expressly political purposes, as evidenced by previous press releases issued by Weinstein:

“Larry Flynt is quite outspoken in his strenuous opposition to condom use in his adult film productions. That is why we filed additional workplace health and safety complaints with Cal/OSHA in August: to press for the enforcement of state workplace regulatory guidelines which would require the use of condoms in his—and all—adult films produced in California,” said Michael Weinstein.

Also:

AHF subsequently submitted additional complaints specifically against Flynt’s Hustler Video as well as against Steve Hirsch’s Vivid Entertainment ... Flynt and Hirsch were targeted as they have been outspoken opponents of condom use in their productions and the industry in general."

In a statement issued on Friday, Kink.com accused Cal/OSHA of issuing “politically motivated” citations at the behest of Michael Weinstein. The complaints to Cal/OSHA were made by Weinstein, not anyone who had performed in the videos, and no injuries were alleged.

“Cal/OSHA is there to protect workers, not to serve as a political weapon to intimidate the opponents of a ballot initiative,” said Leue. “There are tens of thousands of shoots each year, and Kink.com is correct—this is absolutely selective enforcement.”

5th Circ. Issues New Standard for Attorney Fees in Trademark Cases

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

5th Circ. Issues New Standard for Attorney Fees in Trademark Cases

SAN FRANCISCO—A lot of people understand that using a company’s trademark to identify the company you are criticizing or critiquing is not a trademark violation. After all, how are you supposed to tell people you think XYZ Airline sucks without mentioning the name of the airline? Certainly, a lawyer should understand this issue and properly advise his client before bringing a trademark claim to try to silence a critic.

Therefore, it was no surprise when a Texas district court dismissed a case in which AIDS denialist Clark Baker and his organization, the Office of Military and Scientific Justice (OMSJ), sued Jeffrey DeShong for using the company’s trademark on a website criticizing Baker and his organization. Although the lawyer should have known this was a frivolous claim, the judge was reluctant to go one step further and order an award of attorneys’ fees against Baker and OMSJ. Today,in Baker v. Deshong (Case No. 14-11157, Doc. No. 00513489438—5th Cir. May 3, 2016) the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the district court got it wrong.

ADVERTISEMENT


Under 15 U.S.C. § 1117(a) of the Lanham Act, a court should award attorneys’ fees to the prevailing party in an “exceptional” case. The issue on appeal, involved how to determine if a case is exceptional. Specifically, the Court of Appeal held that the district court applied the wrong standard when it required DeShong to show clear and convincing evidence that Baker brought the case bad faith. Instead, the court should have followed guidance from the Supreme Court in Octane Fitness, LLC v. Icon Health and Fitness, Inc., 134 S. Ct. 1749 (2014). Although the Octane Fitness opinion dealt with attorney fees in patent cases, the Fifth Circuit held that the same principles apply in a trademark case. Under the new standard, “an exceptional case is one where (1) in considering both governing law and the facts of the case, the case stands out from others with respect to the substantive strength of a party’s litigating position; or (2) the unsuccessful party has litigated the case in an ‘unreasonable manner.’” The Third and Fourth Circuit Courts of Appeal had already adopted this standard. The Fifth Circuit remanded the case to the district court directing it to apply the less burdensome standard.

This ruling will likely have a significant impact on speech. First, lawyers will be much more reluctant to bring a bogus trademark claim, just because they don’t like what a critic has to say. They will have to decide if they can prove an alternative claim, such as defamation. However, those claims are not often any more attractive to potential plaintiffs since the First Amendment and state anti-SLAPP laws offer significant protections to individuals who engage in public criticism.

Nonetheless, arrogant plaintiffs will continue to bring bogus trademark claims. Therefore, the second effect the case will have may be more important. With a more lenient standard for awarding attorney fees, defendants who have been unfairly sued will have an easier time in locating counsel willing to defend them on a pro bono basis, knowing that they have a good chance of obtaining an award for the fees the lawyer would normally charge.

This is a good day for free speech in a circuit where such decisions don’t come often.

In speaking with AVN, Sperlein added, "We're not likely to collect a fee here, since it was a pro bono case. But it's particularly rewarding to have had the opportunity to protect free speech since the speaker was criticizing someone who's an HIV denialist, who's engaged in promoting really dangerous ideas that really called out for other people to speak out about. It was particularly rewarding for me as an attorney to protect Jeffrey DeShong's right to criticize this guy's remarks." 

D. Gill Sperlein is a San Francisco-based First Amendment attorney who is also of counsel to the Randazza Legal Group in Las Vegas. He and Paul Levy of Public Citizen represented Jeffery DeShong.

Jonni Darkko to Release New Titles With Jules Jordan Video

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off on Jonni Darkko to Release New Titles With Jules Jordan Video

Veteran producer-director says Evil Angel deal unchanged

Jonni Darkko to Release New Titles With Jules Jordan Video

LOS ANGELES—Jonni Darkko told AVN he plans to begin producing and directing bi-monthly movies for distribution through Jules Jordan Video starting this month.

The owner of Darkko Productions said the new deal with Jordan would not change his long-standing agreement with Evil Angel, which has distributed his movies since 2004.   

“I’m trying to get more product out to people and I’ve always had a great relationship with Jules,” Darkko said. “He’s the one who got me started at Evil; he introduced me to [Evil Angel founder John Stagliano]; he was the first one who brought me to John’s attention. So it’s coming full circle.” 

ADVERTISEMENT


Darkko said his decision also underlines his desire to diversify his content. Now in his 17th year in porn, the Chicago native has become known as a master videographer with an award-winning library full of unapologetic anal movies, sloppy oral-themed releases, a parade of star showcases and dozens of Asian-themed titles.

“I’m just going to do things I want do that I haven’t been able to do,” Darkko added, noting that double-penetration cream-pie scenes were on his short list. 

“I’ve never been able to do that, like double vag or double-A with cream-pies. I’ve never done anything like that before, so that’s coming up. The first one is going to be an Asian release that’s a little harder than my typical, a little nastier.”

That first title, set to street on May 16, is called Asian Fuck Machines and stars Darkko favorite Kalina Ryu.

"We're very happy to add Jonni to the roster of professional perverts here at JJV,” Jules Jordan told AVN. “I've always loved his movies and vision, which comes from a true photographer’s perspective combined with hot, nasty sex."

Darkko, who has produced and directed more than 220 movies since 2003, said he plans to continue to release approximately one title per month through Evil Angel, taking special care to insure titles aren’t overlapping.

Asian Fuck Machines also features Annie Cruz, who delivers what Darkko called a “double anal fest.”

“Sixty percent of the scene is all double anal,” he noted.

In addition, Kaylani Lei did a d.p. with some double vag; Morgan Lee appears in an anal scene; and Saya Song and Ryu do regular boy/girl. Darkko revealed the Korean sexual dynamo Ryu delivered a scene that clocked in at 1 hour, 45 minutes.

Bike Smut Erotic Film Festival Rolls into L.A. This Weekend

Posted May 03rd, 2016 12:56 PM

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—It's always worth noting the arrival of a touring erotic film festival, but in the case of this weekend's Bike Smut event, it's more important to mention that this festival is rolling into Los Angeles for the last time.

In fact, this is the ninth and final ride for the erotic film festival, which has made stops in cities around the world. It comes to L.A. one more time on Saturday, May 7.

"I've helped curate these events in L.A. with Phil for the past six or seven years," said local organizer Donnie Pepper. "So I will be doing my best to make this the most memorable evening that we've done together yet."

ADVERTISEMENT


The theme for this year, "Science Friction," should help make the final Bike Smut a night to remember. The erotic films by participating cyclists feature time-traveling sex missionaries, queer trans babes armed with dildo flamethrowers, and interracial alien orgies. There will be a live band and performances after the screenings.

"The only way to see the Bike Smut film festival is when it plays for a live audience," said organizer Rev. Phil. "The various artists' interpretations about what is great about sex and cycling are creative, clever, funny and aware! Bike Smut has never been just a single person's vision; rather, a coalition of the horny bring this synthesis of transportation and sexuality to life."

Previous contributors include Gus Van Sant, Courtney Trouble, Pink & White Productions, and Tinto Brass.

The event gets in gear at 9 p.m. at the Church of Fun, located at 4109 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles.

Voices of Experience: Julia Ann

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off on Voices of Experience: Julia Ann

Julia Ann

The May issue of AVN magazine turns the spotlight on 10 bold, confident and assertive female performers who talk about why life gets better after 35. Interviewed here is Julia Ann, a repeat winner of MILF Performer of the Year honors at the AVN Awards. Click here to see a copy of the digital edition. Julia Ann is pictured above in MILF Dreams, a 2016 release directed by Holly Randall for AE Films and distributed by Pure Play Media.

ADVERTISEMENT


AVN: How did you decide to go into porn?

Julia Ann: It all started when I was on the road dancing with Janine as "Blondage," and we were trying to figure out how to make more money, and [Janine] said, "Ohmigod, there's this director who said that he wanted to shoot me, so I want you to meet him too, and then we'll do our first movie together," and that was Hidden Obsessions, [directed by] Andrew Blake.

What are your favorite types of movies? Least favorite?

I'm not much into the costumes, but I do like dialog, so if it's a very funny scenario, I really enjoy that. When I get to play somebody with a billy club and I get to abuse my authority, I like that. I've done BDSM, worked for Kink, but I wasn't on the dominant side, I was on the submissive side, but in the everyday films, I'm usually the aggressor, so yeah, I like it when I get to abuse my power a little bit.

Did you ever think you would be in the business long enough to make the transition from starlet to MILF?

There's actually videotape of me saying—because this is how stupid you are in your 20s—that "If I'm in the business when I'm 30, I'm a fuckin' loser." When I said it, I believe I was in a dressing room with Janine, and somebody came in and did the interview while we were dancing at a club, and sure enough, that came right out of my mouth, and I was probably 24, so, you know, "Out of the mouths of babes," I'm just sayin'. Like, you say things, and then later, you're like, "Really?"

Do you have tips on how enjoy longevity in the biz?

Longevity in porn takes just a little bit of sheer luck, I think. I never really strived; I was never, "I'm gonna be the biggest thing out there." I just thought, "Okay, this is my job and I'm making a living; I have to pay the bills." ... The other thought I have is, I think the biggest thing in the world is ... if you're a dick, nobody's going to help you. If you're having a slow month and you call someone and you're like, "Dude, man, I'm cool but there's this extra thing I'd really like to do; can you work me in the schedule?" if you're cool, they're like, "Yeah, of course!" Now, if you're a dick, they're gonna be like, "Yeah, sorry." So there's a thing to knowing that your job is just as important as the director, the PA, the makeup artist, the lighting guy, the cameraman, the grip, whatever; we're all in the same boat, and so if you're really awesome and you realize this, and everybody's treated with respect, then at the end of the day, if stuff goes wrong or things are slowing down—no matter what it is, you're first on their mind because you've been a good person. ... I do think there's something to that; I really do. If you act like a dick—and honestly, that's boys and girls—you act like a dick, there's no loyalty in that. You know, [former talent agent] Lucky Smith, back in the day, of Risque Business, said, "Better be nice to everybody on the way up because they're the same people you're gonna see on the way down."

What came first, MILF porn or pop culture references to MILFs?

The title might not have been there, but there's always been a fascination with older women. My godmother actually is a mainstream actress, Gigi Perreau, and to me, she was one of the original MILFs because in The Brady Bunch, I think it was Peter who had a crush on his teacher, and she was the teacher, and she was with a famous baseball player in it or something like that, so she was one of the first older women to be seen as sexually attractive. And then you had Class Act with Jacqueline Bisset, with Rob Lowe and stuff like that, and Andrew McCarthy was having sex with Rob Lowe's mother. So this has existed. I think what had to happen was timing. I think you had, first, the [mainstream] contract actresses that had to happen first, that brought a certain amount of mainstream activity to adult, and then the girls had to age into it. You had to have a combination of porn acceptance, adult content acceptance in the mainstream; you had to have more women who were interested in getting into it, and that comes with it being more mainstream—your average person just walking in and going, "I'm going to be a porn actress," There's a certain amount of legitimacy that had to happen in order for the people to show up, in order for the women to age into the role, because we didn't have the women aged into the role. And now we have a plethora.

In addition to her career in front of the camera, Julia Ann has been a makeup artist at times over the years but doesn't do that much now, unless she's shooting something for her websites and wants a certain look. She has two websites: JuliaAnnLive.com, which is part of the VNA network, and a new site, WomenByJuliaAnn.com, that is softer than the one targeted at men, which is more hardcore.

XRCO Announces 2016 Hall of Fame Inductees

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

XRCO Announces 2016 Hall of Fame Inductees

HOLLYWOOD—The X-Rated Critics Organization today released the names of the varied adult industry personalities who will be induced into its Hall of Fame at the 2016 XRCO Awards Show, taking place June 22 at OHM nightclub in Hollwyood.

The 2016 Hall of fame class includes studio heads, beloved female performers, influential directors and the man behind one of the industry's most relied upon websites.

"Every year we have a number of worthy names up for consideration," XRCO chairman Dirty Bob said. "So many people have contributed to the industry over the years and a new crop becomes eligible every year. Narrowing it down is never easy. This year's class is very special in that it honors our history while recognizing the tremendous changes we have experienced as we look towards a bright future."

ADVERTISEMENT


Among this year's inductees are Vivid Entertainment and Wicked Pictures founders Steve Hirsch and Steve Orenstein. These two industry giants created adult movie empires that dominated triple-X features for over two decades and established the contract star model that made household names our of Ginger Lynn, Jenna Jameson, Christy Canyon, Jessica Drake, Jenteal, Serenity and many others.

One of those stars, Briana Banks, enters the Hall of Fame as well, after having recently announced her return to the industry. She's joined by Golden Age legend Constance Money of Barbara Broadcast and The Opening of Misty Beethoven fame, and early millennial star Hillary Scott, who in 2006 took home a record five XRCO Awards including Female Performer of the Year and Best Actress for the epic Corruption.

"Hillary Scott's 2006 XRCO Awards haul was unprecendented," organization member Roger T. Pipe said. "A clean sweep in the five individual categories she was nominated in and another two for her movie Corruption. I doubt we will ever see a single performer take home that many trophies in one shot again."

Three enormously impactful women claim spots in the director/creator subsection of the Hall this year. Screewriter Raven Touchstone gets the nod for her huge span of work including Vivid's Ginger movies and many others, a number of Bruce Seven titles, and additional long stints with Wicked and Metro. Joanna Angel and Mason join Candida Royalle and Suze Randall as the only female directors to receive this honor.

Angel and Mason have both defied the conventional wisdom that says female-directed porn is softer than that created by their male couterparts. Since her start in 2002, Mason has directed over 160 titles most notably for Elegant Angel Productions and sister labels Hard X, Erotica X and now Dark X. She has become well known for her hard-edged sex scenes and beautifully shot tease sequences, as well as her signature star showcases that have become career-defining efforts for the ladies they're built around. Angel has made her mark not only as a movie creator but as a top performer with over 240 titles to her credit, and as a trailerblazer with her website BurningAngel.com that ushered in a new aesthetic and distinctive style for porn with its focus on tattooed, often unknown talent and indie music.

"Joanna's career has been exceptional in every regard," Dirty Bob said. "She is a popular and dynamic performer, a skilled director and has created a brand that is truly her own. She is someone we all love and are very proud to call part of our industry."

Don Houston joins the Hall of Fame as a member of the 5th estate. Writing primarily for XCritic.com, Houston is one of the most prolific and highly regarded critics in the industry, and has been an outspoken voice for all positive aspects of the industry. Also entering the ranks in the Special Award category are IAFD.com and its proprietor Jeff Vanzetti. IAFD (the Internet Adult Film Database) houses information on nearly 200,000 adult movies and over 150,000 performers. It has been one of the most trusted resorces for both fans of adult entertainment and industy professionals for more than two decades.

"IAFD.com is quite possibly the most influential adult site in the history of our industry," Pipe commented. "It is an invaluable resource for porn fans and critics alike. The review database has given a voice to many up and coming critics, myself included. The induction of the site and the man behind it are long overdue."

The full 2016 XRCO Hall of Fame class is as follows:

IAFD / Jeff Vanzetti - Special Award

Don Houston - 5th Estate

Raven Touchstone - Creator

Steve Hirsch - Special Award

Steve Orenstein - Special Award

Constance Money - Film Pioneer

Hillary Scott - Actress

Briana Banks - Actress

Mason - Director

Joanna Angel - Director

California Republican Party Votes to Oppose Condom Measure

Comments Off on California Republican Party Votes to Oppose Condom Measure

"It's one of the rare political issues where Democrats and Republicans agree"

California Republican Party Votes to Oppose Condom Measure

Posted May 03rd, 2016 08:53 AM

BURLINGAME, Calif.—In a press release issued today, the Californians Against Worker Harassment coalition announced that the California Republican Party has voted overwhelmingly to oppose a state ballot initiative that would allow private citizens to sue adult performers if a condom is not visible in an adult film. The controversial California Condoms in Pornographic Films Act has been widely opposed by performers, producers, and public health advocates.

Eric Paul Leue, executive director of the Free Speech Coalition, said Republicans were disturbed about the bill’s fiscal impact, as well as its enforcement mechanism: any Californian who views an adult film without a visible condom could file a lawsuit against performers and others involved in the production and distribution of the film.

“No worker in any other industry faces this type of harassment from the public,” Leue said. “The initiative empowers stalkers, harassers, anti-porn activists, profiteers and crusaders, while leaving actual performers more vulnerable. This initiative could open the door to similar measures for other industries.”

The Legislative Analyst’s Office, which evaluates ballot initiatives for fiscal impact, predicts the bill will cost California taxpayers tens of millions of dollars each year in lost revenue, as performers and production companies move outside the state.

Leue says the ballot measure is so bad it has been opposed on both sides of the political spectrum. San Francisco Democrats voted to oppose the measure last month.

“It’s one of the rare political issues where Democrats and Republicans agree. The bill is misguided, dangerous, costly, and terrible for California.”

Piper Perri Seeks Aid With Final Expenses for Son

Piper Perri Seeks Aid With Final Expenses for Son

NEW ORLEANS—A GoFundMe page set up last week by adult performer Piper Perri seeking help with emergency medical expenses for her hospitalized son Hayden now additionally aims to assist with funeral expenses for the 2-year-old, who died Friday at New Orleans' University Medical Center.

Perri first created the GoFundMe page a week ago Sunday, after University Medical Center doctors determined that Hayden had suffered severe brain trauma from a reported fall earlier that day. In an update yesterday to the GoFundMe page, Perri wrote, "Unfortunately, sometimes things happen that are beyond our control, or even doctors. And despite their best efforts and some of the best care in the state of Louisiana[,] Hayden was pronounced brain dead.

ADVERTISEMENT


"I made the gut-wrenching decision to make him an organ donor and he has gone on to save four or five other lives," she continued. "So, my little boy has died a hero.

"The hospital stay was very long. He had many experts working on him, along with the surgery, life support, being in the ICU for an extended period of time, and now his funeral, cremation and memorial services. To this point I still honestly do not know the extent of the amount for his medical bills, but I know every little bit helps."

AVN spoke with Perri Monday, and she offered the following comment: "I was surprised by the amount of support I've received and continue to receive from everyone in the industry. You all are like my little family. We really have each other's backs."

Regarding the circumstances that led to Hayden's hospitalization, Perri said, "As far as I know my son fell down the steps and he may or may not have been shaken in an attempt to revive him."

Perri was out of town the day Hayden was admitted to the hospital, and he was in the care of her boyfriend, Seth Redell. Local news outlets have reported that the doctors who examined Hayden claimed his injuries were consistent with "shaken baby syndrome," and that Redell was booked that day by the Jefferson Parish Sherriff's Office for second-degree cruelty to a child. Redell was released on bond, but re-arrested after Hayden's death Friday on suspicion of second-degree murder.

Perri noted that she intends to start a foundation in Hayden's name to aid other families facing the same tragedy by which she's been struck, and that any amount she collects through GoFundMe in excess of what's needed to cover Hayden's hospital and funeral costs will go toward forming that foundation.

Voices of Experience: Kendra Lust

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off on Voices of Experience: Kendra Lust

Kendra Lust

The May issue of AVN magazine turns the spotlight on 10 bold, confident and assertive female performers who talk about why life gets better after 35. On the cover of the issue is Kendra Lust, who was named MILF Performer of the Year at the 2016 AVN Awards. Click here to see a copy of the digital edition.

How did you decide to get into porn?

I was a webcam model for a few months and someone in my chat room asked me if I had ever done porn or thought about it. Honestly, I had thought about it but really didn't know how to start out doing it. I felt comfortable being naked in front of a camera so I looked into companies that I wanted to work with and decided to take the plunge.

ADVERTISEMENT


How do you think your career differed because you started later in life rather than right out of high school or in college?

Oh my god! If I would have started earlier in life I honestly don't know how my life would have turned out! Being older has helped me to think of the industry more as a career instead of something that I'm doing for the moment. I'm also in my sexual peak so I love fucking more than I ever have in my life and I am not afraid to take what I want.

What directors are particularly skilled in bringing out the sensuality of older women?

I have worked with so many amazing directors and it truly is difficult to name just a couple! I love being on sets where the directors really appreciate the sensuality and perverted mind of a woman in her 30s. When a woman feels sexy and empowered a lot of exciting things can happen!

What skills are most important to making this career into a profitable business?

Being able to say ‘no’ to all those expensive shoes and purses! I’m joking! Taking the industry seriously and having some sort of plan with your career. Try to tap in to multiple revenue streams but most importantly you must love to bang and have sex! The rest will fall into place.

CAM4 Launches Virtual Reality Venture With VRTube.xxx

Posted May 02nd, 2016 11:46 AM

LOS ANGELES—CAM4 and VRTube.xxx on Monday announced a strategic partnership that will bring Virtual Reality live cams to the public through CAM4's platform.

CAM4 spokesperson Derek Devlin said, “This partnership is really exciting because it marries VRTube’s technology with our own pioneering VR research and development.

"Together, we have created a best in class VR experience that will be fully integrated into CAM4.com, making VR cams accessible for all. We are committed to empowering performers to monetize across all mediums and VR is just one of the exciting new platforms we are developing to support our broadcasters.

ADVERTISEMENT


"This unique service offers our users an experience that far surpasses what was possible with any 2D analog live streaming. It’s a new era for live cams and we are excited to be at the forefront of this emerging technology."

VRTube.xxx was co-founded in 2014 by Ela Darling, the producer-performer who has championed Virtual Reality as a means for transforming adult content into a fully immersive experience.

“Live VR cams are the most engaging and powerful experience yet made for Virtual Reality,” Darling said. “The most attractive aspects of live cams are intimacy, immediacy, and presence. VR amplifies these aspects to create a performance that goes beyond what was previously attainable and soon to be available from CAM4.com. People can have a much more personal cam viewing experience than with traditional cam shows.”  

VRTube.xxx specializes in full 360° experiences rendered in real world environments.

CAM4VR’s commitment is that performers will broadcast from their own home and viewers will be able to transport themselves to the performers bedroom with a full 360° view. CAM4VR will support all of the popular VR headsets available today including Oculus Rift, Gear VR, HTC Vive and Google Cardboard with your Android phone.

Darling will discuss the venture at the upcoming CamCon conference in Miami this June.

Brazzers Announces 'Invisible Porno'

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off on Brazzers Announces 'Invisible Porno'

Parody of 'Hollow Man' Features Floating Phallus

Brazzers Announces 'Invisible Porno'

Posted May 02nd, 2016 10:38 AM

LOS ANGELES—Brazzers on Monday announced the release of a parody of Hollow Man called F***ing the Invisible Man.

The company is billing the spoof as "the very first porn parody to display a floating phallus during sexual intercourse that isn’t animated."

The movie is part of Brazzers's "Tech-Porn" venture announced in February of this year.

F***ing the Invisible Man unfolds as an affair between a scientist’s wife (Michelle Thorne) and her lover (Danny D). When the affair is foiled, the lover is forced to take drastic and impulsive action with substances beyond his understanding.  

ADVERTISEMENT


Brazzers Product Director Mario Nardstein described the scene as “a true step up in pushing the technological boundaries of porn."

"Our production and post teams worked meticulously to create the actual invisibility of the protagonist while maintaining a defined human body shape and thus the audience’s relation to him as a character—and his genitals," Nardstein said. "You can’t forget that audiences watch porn for the vicarious experience of the sympathetic human element.”

While previous adult films like The Erotic Misadventures of the Invisible Man (2003) have attempted to create invisible sex prior to this Brazzers scene, they stop short at hips gyrating in the air, the company said.

Axel Braun Wraps 'Supergirl XXX'

Axel Braun Wraps 'Supergirl XXX'

LOS ANGELES—Director Axel Braun has warpped production on Supergirl XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, his third title for Wicked Pictures' superhero-centered Wicked Comix imprint.

Shot over a period of four months, Supergirl XXX stars Axel Braun Productions contract girl and 2015 AVN Best New Starlet/Best Actress Carter Cruise in the role she originated in the director's sophomore Wicked Comix project, last year's blockbuster Batman v Superman XXX: An Axel Braun Parody.

ADVERTISEMENT


"Carter absolutely owns this character," Braun said. "Her commanding screen presence and incredible acting range, which she brought to this movie in spades, are topped by two absolutely explosive sexual performances. This was definitely an acting tour-de-force for her, and she blew everybody away with her intesity, her dedication and her sheer awesomeness."

Added Wicked president and owner Steve Orenstein, "Axel never shoots a parody of anything he isn't emotionally attached to. His lifelong passion for superheroes and his attention to detail are on full display here, and we are very excited to give comic book fans another exceptional Wicked Comix movie."

Supergirl XXX co-stars ABP contract girl Riley Steele as Enchantress, 2016 AVN Best New Starlet nominee Katrina Jade as Mercy Graves, and veteran Wicked Girl Jessica Drake as media mogul Cat Grant.

"Playing Cat Grant in Axel's Supergirl XXX was awesome!" Drake enthused. "Fans will love the scene with me, Ryan Driller and Van Wylde, hopefully as much as I loved doing it. Now I understand why so many performers want to be in a Wicked Comix movie, and why so many fans are hooked on them."

Driller reprises his role as Superman for the fifth time here, with Wylde playing Jimmy Olsen and Derrick Pierce once again filling the nefarious shoes of Lex Luthor. In addition, comeback male performer Charles Dera takes over the role of Batman, and 2016 AVN Best Male Newcomer nominee Damon Dice appears as villain Brainiac ... for which he shaved his head and subjected himself to being painted green.

"I must applaud Damon for his commitment to this role," Braun saluted. "He's a terrific performer and a really great guy, and his portrayal of Brainiac was uncanny. The fact that he agreed to shave his head and potentially lose weeks of work just to be in my movie is a clear sign that he's a true professional, and that he's in for the long run."

Supergirl XXX: An Axel Braun Parody is scheduled for release in June.

Trailer for St. James' 'Submission' Debuts on HuffPo

CYBERSPACE—The official trailer for Submission, the upcoming BDSM-themed mini-series from adult director Jacky St. James, debuted today on The Huffington Post.

Coming to the Showtime network next month, with the first episode airing May 12 at 11 p.m., Submission was produced by AVN founder Paul Fishbein's Plausible Films and stars Ashlynn Yennie as Ashley, a young woman who after a bad breakup gets drawn by her new roommates into the world of bondage and sadomasochism, abetted by a BDSM-focused erotic novel entitled Slave that captures her fascination. Adult star Skin Diamond undertakes a supporting role in the six-episode series.

ADVERTISEMENT


Declaring in its headline that the Submission trailer "puts the sex in 'Fifty Shades' to shame," the HuffPo write-up goes on to describe the Ashley character as "Anastasia-Steele-turned-up" and posits, "If 'Fifty Shades of Grey' was meant for the 'mom' crowd, then Showtime's new scripted mini-series 'Submission' is for the more adventurous type."

See the trailer and the HuffPo plug here. The trailer is also available on YouTube.

Famed Photographer Charles Gatewood Dies

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off on Famed Photographer Charles Gatewood Dies

Famed Photographer Charles Gatewood Dies

SAN FRANCISCO—Charles Gatewood—a man best known for his photography, but who was also a writer, videographer, artist and educator—died Thursday, April 28. He was 73.

“Charles Gatewood has been my best friend, mentor, and closest confidant,” said his girlfriend, Eva Marie. “He believed in me always, offering support and encouragement with unconditional love and kindness. Thank you, Charles, for every laugh, story, smile, and most of all, thank you for loving me.”

ADVERTISEMENT


Known as “the anthropologist of the forbidden,” Gatewood was a photographer for Skin and Ink magazine (1998-2010) and produced more than 30 documentaries about body modification, fetish fashion and more. He was considered the premier documentarian of alternative culture in San Francisco, listing Carol Queen, Annie Sprinkle, Ron Turner and several others as his subjects.

He documented sexual underground and alternative subcultures dating back to the 1960s. He also produced a few adult movies, including Whipped & Shaved/Bloodbath Erotic Blood Rituals and Erotic Tattooing & Body Piercing Vol. 5

Born Nov. 8, 1942, in Elgin, Ill., Gatewood was the son of John Jay Gatewood and Clarene Hall Gatewood. He grew up in Rolla and Springfield, Mo., and he attended the University of Missouri, majoring in anthropology and minoring in art history. Gateway credited a 1964 meeting with photographer George W. Gardner and a Museum of Modern Art photography book The Family of Man as influences on his decision to pursue a career in photography.

On April 29, 1966, Gatewood photographed the concert and pre-concert press conference of musician Bob Dylan. One photograph, "Dylan With Sunglasses and Cigarette," was syndicated and received worldwide publication; it was Gatewood's first sale and first published picture.

"Taking the Bob Dylan photo gave me faith I could actually be a professional photographer," said Gatewood. 

Since then, his 50-year journey as a photojournalist and fine art photographer has seen him work on assignment for Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Harper’s, Time, and other national publications. His images have been compared to those of Diane Arbus, Robert Frank and Weegee, and have featured various subjects, including Dylan, Martin Luther King Jr., Rod Stewart, Carlos Santana, Boz Scaggs, Joan Baez, Al Green, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Andy Warhol, Nelson Rockefeller, Allen Ginsberg and other Beat generation writers, Annie Sprinkle, Fakir and others. 

“Chaz was a close friend, mentor, and sometimes collaborator since 1982,” said Annie Sprinkle. “He was enormously talented, a very influential photographer, and he lived his life as art. A lot of folks in the tattooing, piercing, music, BDSM, and sex worker communities are enormously grateful for the treasure trove of images he made of us, and are much relieved that UC Berkeley will preserve his archive. He will live on in my heart and my clit.”

“I worked with Chaz from 2008 to 2010, but you couldn’t really call it ‘work’—our interaction was always full of fun and play,” said Kelly Shibari. “I’m forever grateful to him for all he has taught me about the nature of entertainment, of baring your soul, of throwing everything against the wall and seeing what sticks, and having no regrets. I will always love you, Chaz—the industry has lost a great cultural icon and trailblazer today, but you will live on forever in your work, and in our hearts.”

Once the toothpaste is out of the tube—An art apart: Charles Gatewood is a one-hour documentary about Gatewood’s life, creative process and love of photography. Earlier this year, Vice.com published some of his works in advance of a show at San Francisco’s Ladybug House. For more of his work, visit CharlesGatewood.com.

The Gatewood Archive contains several thousand vintage and modern silver prints, 250,000 slides and negatives, plus contact sheets, proof prints, personal papers, correspondence, over a thousand books, and special collections. The archive also contains master edits of 36 Gatewood videos, plus three films (including a copy of Dances Sacred and Profane) and a selection of prints by other fine art photographers.

Of his work, Charles Gatewood said in 2009, “I’m kind of restless, in that I want to try all of the different styles, different subjects… then let history sort it out. I don’t know what some future historian might think is my best work, and I don’t care. It’s my job to make it… let somebody else sort it all out later.”

In addition to his girlfriend, Gatewood is survived by a sister. A memorial service is currently being scheduled to be held at the Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco; more information will be forthcoming.

Nica Noelle Returns to Sweetheart With 'A Mother's Secret'

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off on Nica Noelle Returns to Sweetheart With 'A Mother's Secret'

Nica Noelle Returns to Sweetheart With 'A Mother's Secret'

MONTREAL—Director Nica Noelle returns to the studio she helped launch in 2008, lesbian label Sweetheart Video, with new feature A Mother's Secret, due out soon through parent company Mile High Media.

This is Noelle's first Sweetheart movie since 2012, when she set off to pursue other opportunities. She returned to Mile High in 2014, and there has overseen the creation of gay studio Icon Male and trans studio TransSensual.

ADVERTISEMENT


A Mother's Secret is an all-girl drama written and directed by Noelle, with Elexis Monroe, Kasey Warner, Ingrid Mouth and Jelena Jensen starring.

Commented Noelle, "A Mother's Secret reminded me of just how magical a genre girl/girl cinema is. I was flooded with memories of everything that inspired me about this industry at the beginning, and what a long, strange journey it's been. I hope the fans enjoy this feature, because we put our hearts into it. It definitely felt like a homecoming—lots of joy, and a few tears, too."

She continued, "For my return project, it was very important to me to work with models that inspire me. The first name on that list was Elexis Monroe. When I first started working with Elexis she was so young, we would always cast her as the college student or girl next door. So to find myself on set with her so many years later, in the middle of New England, watching her play a middle-aged mother—it was a deep moment for us. Her performance still has all the passion and fire, as it did at the start of her career. It's still such a tremendous joy to film her.

"Meanwhile, Ingrid Mouth was someone I only became aware of in the last year," Noelle added. "There was something about her that I found very compelling, and I wrote the Sevilla character especially for her. Jelena Jensen was only available for one day because she was in the middle of traveling for work, and that's the only reason her role in the movie is so brief. She moved mountains to get here, all because she wanted to be part of my return to girl/girl. It doens't get any better than that."

As to her final casting choice, Noelle said, "Kasey Warner I chose from a photograph. Aside from her obvious beauty, there was something about her eyes—she has these soulful, intelligent eyes. So I chose her based on her photo alone, and I must be psychic because Kasey was perfect."

On Noelle's return to Sweetheart, Mile High vice president Jon Blitt offered, "Nica is a creative force and we always welcome her compelling storylines for our studios. Sweetheart fans have been hopeful for her to continue to contribute and this feature was a perfect return showcasing her signature style. She is a mastermind at her craft and creates gay, TS and straight erotica like no other."

Glenn King Breaks Fourth Wall With FemdomInteractive.com

Glenn King Breaks Fourth Wall With FemdomInteractive.com

Posted Apr 28th, 2016 08:51 AM

LOS ANGELES—Glenn King, a pioneer in adult entertainment's femdom genre, has announced the launch of a new femdom clip store/website: FemdomInteractive.com.

“We are moving toward a new era of adult entertainment where the viewer participates,” said King. “This new site completely breaks the fourth wall. In every scene, there’s a Domme who talks directly to the viewer. In some scenes, she cuckolds the viewer. In others, she orders the viewer to masturbate or kiss the screen. The viewer will feel like he (or she!) is part of the action!”

ADVERTISEMENT


As the force behind MeanBitches.com and the Glenn King Maneaters Show, King is deeply immersed producing erotic content that celebrates dominant women. But King points out that FemdomInteractive represents a new approach to the genre. For one thing, the scenes will be short—six to ten minutes in length. And each scene will feature blowjobs.

King explained, “Social media has changed the world—people don’t have long attention spans any more. I want to give people faster-paced action. And I want to focus on some specific fetishes, like cuckold, giantess, homewrecker and more. Every model we shoot will do a really hot femdom blowjob.”

Performers appearing on FemdomInteractive.com include Cindy Starfall, Marsha May, Nyomi Star and Jayden Lee. King plans to release the scenes as part of a new DVD series that will be distributed by Exquisite Multimedia. The first DVD will be all Asian, and will be released sometime this summer.

Chyna's Manager Says Death Caused by Accidental OD

Chyna's Manager Says Death Caused by Accidental OD

LOS ANGELES—According to her manager, Anthony Anzaldo, wrestler-turned-porn star Chyna's death last week was caused by an accidental overdose of Ambien and Valium, the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday afternoon.

Anzaldo, who found Chyna's body in her Redondo Beach apartment last Wednesday, told the Times that she'd been legally prescribed the two drugs and was taking them for three weeks prior to her death, but was not using them properly.

ADVERTISEMENT


The Los Angeles Coroner's Office, meanwhile, has not made an official ruling on the celeb's cause of death, and said it could take months for toxicology results to corroborate Anzaldo's assessment that she died of an overdose.

Anzaldo has received some criticism for reportedly postponing the help that may have saved Chyna's life with negotiations to get her cast on the reality TV show Intervention.

Chyna's brain is set to be donated for scientific research by Dr. Bennet Omalu, the Nigerian forensic pathologist played by Will Smith in the film Concussion. Omalu will examine her brain for any insight it may provide about chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, the disease that has afflicted many athletes who've sustained repeated blunt force trauma to their heads.

Dallas' Neighbor Is Just Fine With Pole Dancer Convention

FT. WORTH, Texas—Ever heard of the Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport? Of course you have! And as the name implies, it serves both the Dallas and Ft. Worth areas, which are pretty close to each other; in fact, they're just over 30 miles apart—physically—but apparently much more distant philosophically, especially when it comes to sex-related subjects.

As the Dallas Morning News' Scoop Blog reported this morning, on June 2, the city-owned Ft. Worth Convention Center will play host to the International Pole Convention, also known as PoleCon, which, according to its website, "celebrates the diversity of the pole dance/pole fitness community."

Of course, most adult entertainment fans are well familiar with pole-dancing. Just about every performer in every strip club in the country uses the pole for at least part of her routine, and there's a good likelihood that among the expected 700 attendees at the convention will be a number of professional strippers aka adult entertainers, some of whom are aka porn stars—and that's exactly what the Ft. Worth Convention Center wants to downplay.

"The event is focused primarily on the fitness aspect of the sport," Sarah Covington, public relations manager for the Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau, wrote in an email to the Dallas Morning News. "Attendees will be wearing fitness and workout clothes. There haven’t been any red flags raised to our knowledge from the community."

But even Colleen Jolly, who runs the convention, admits that "many people still associate pole dancing with strip clubs," and that "[s]ome convention participants work as strippers."

According to the PoleCon website, among the workshops to be offered at the convention are "New To Pole," "Flexy Pole Flow," "Bendy Butterfly (Contortion For All Levels)", "Come Get Some: Stylized & Signature Tricks with CryStylez," "Sexy, Slinky Pole," "All Star, All Stripper Discussion Panel," "Karol's Sick Tricks," "Tassels & Assels Burlesque Workshop," and the "Dangerous Curves Showcase." Hmmm... some of those seem more targeted at professional strippers rather than being "focused ... on the fitness aspect of the sport."

It also seems likely that some attendees at the convention may be more focused on the "professional stripper" aspect of the show, and we suspect that it'll be pretty hard to hide the skin at, for example, the "Tassels & Assels Burlesque Workshop."

But hey, that's Ft. Worth for ya—just 30 or so miles from a city that just banned the Exxxotica Lifestyle Expo from its own city-owned convention center.

Now, what was the name of that city...?

Birchbox Imitators Find Their Way to Pleasure Products Industry

Birchbox Imitators Find Their Way to Pleasure Products Industry

LOS ANGELES—The art of shopping has come a long way in recent decades, especially when the internet made it possible for people to shop without leaving their homes. But one of the latest innovations is the advent of Birchbox, and its many imitators, so it should be no surprise the business model has found its way into the realm of sex toys.

Birchbox is a New York-based online monthly subscription service that sends customers a box of four or five selected samples of makeup and other beauty-related products. The company started in 2010, and since then other entrepreneurs have used the model to sell everything from dog toys to food to pop culture toys and now sex toys.

Not surprisingly, a few have already come and gone (Tuck-In Box, Blush Box), but others seems to be getting the hang of providing everything from lingerie to lubricants to vibrators and more to those who might be too shy or too busy to shop at their local adult boutique or maybe those who can’t be bothered to find their own items at any number of online adult retailers.

We joke, but in theory the boxes can be a good idea for people with a little extra discretionary income and a willingness to experiment.

In the case of Spicy Subscriptions, subscribers get a uniquely themed box of items to spice up their love lives. The Spice Box come with up to full-sized products, one or two toys and two or three trial products. The curated collections include everything from vibrators to massage candles, oils and other romantic items. The boxes can also feature bath and body items, romantic accessories and other unique products. Spicy Subscriptions takes it a step further by rewarding customers for recurring purchases, referring friends and giving feedback on the samples; subscribers earns points through the program and can use the points to receive full-size products. The Spice Box sells for $34.95 per month, while a Toy of the Month subscription goes for $24.95 and the Lube of the Month option is $10 per month.

The Fantasy Box bills itself as a “luxury service designed to help couples explore new dimensions of their relationship in a safe, stress-free, fun way.” In the themed boxes (which can include sized lingerie) are instructions for each person and products needed to “play out the scenario.”

“Sometimes he’s in charge,” the site reads. “Sometimes she is. Sometimes it’s both. Either way, it’s going to be hot.”

The fantasies come in one of four themes: Sensual, Control, Costume or Playful. The site also sells other boxes available only through the online store. The subscriptions start at $39 a month.

The Pleasure Pantry starts off by asking subscribers to give a few details so their boxes can be tailored to the right sizes, pleasure and sexual preferences. The boxes include everything from adult novelties and toy stop lingerie and can be customized to suit particular tastes and desires. Unlike most sexually themed subscription services, The Pleasure Pantry offers boxes for a number of couple configurations: Boy/Girl, Boy/Boy, Girl/Girl and Bridal. Boxes start at $29 per month.

Unbound is slightly different than other sex toy-based box subscription: The curated collection is shipped on a quarterly basis. Unbound boxes feature full-sized, high-quality items selected from all over the world. The boxes ship the first week of February, May, August and November. Boxes cost $65 each.

Just as there’s a chance subscribers will find new items to love in these boxes, there’s just as much of a chance they will find themselves paying for something they already own, don’t like or don’t want. It remains to be seen if these services will learn to use feedback to their advantage and become major players in the industry.

IBT Examines PornHub

IBT Examines PornHub

CYBERSPACE—As somewhat of a counterpoint to the op-ed it ran last weekend by porn luminary Kayden Kross decrying the effect of tube sites on the adult industry, the UK's International Business Times the same day published an extensive profile of tube titan PornHub.

Quoting critics of "the YouTube of sex" and parent company MindGeek—including Kross, Adult Empire's Megan Wozniak and industry blogger Mike South—the story also proffers defenses of the PornHub business model from MindGeek vice-president of global communications Catherine Dunn and former owner Fabian Thylmann (who sold the company in 2013).

Touching on both the Adult Empire-launched and Kross-backed #PayforYourPorn campaign and the pending lawsuit brought against MindGeek by Hush Hush Entertainment for alleged copyright infringement on PornHub's sister paysite PornHubPremium.com, here equal play is given to PornHub's side of the story, which contends that it's not the industry-decimating steamroller so many have made it out to be.

"There's been a lot of noise around the rise of free content and how it's hurting the industry," MindGeek's Dunn said. "I'd say there is a lot of misinformation out there about how tube sites actually function."

Added Thylmann, "I would not say that my website destroyed or diminished the market in any way shape or form—I would say that it grew it, simply because there are more people in the market now. Yes, they may be getting free stuff here and there but this would've happened anyway."

He continued, "The industry has done this for the last 20 years. From the very beginning they gave away stuff for free because it always, always worked. We just made it easier and more compact in one location." He went on to say, "In terms of companies suing MindGeek because of their tube sites, from everything I have seen I don't see anything they are doing that breaks the law."
