Signing Off for 2013 with a Special Nod to Porn4Jews

LOS ANGELES—As the last hours of 2013 tick away, we want to wish all of our readers a Happy New Year, and also a Happy Jew Year! The porn industry, as most people know, is populated by more than its fair share of Jews, but that doesn't mean that there aren't porn sites out there that can't be shared with even the most orthodox of mothers. One such site is Porn4Jews, whose tagline says it all: "5,000 years of tradition. 5,000 years of sexy."

A simple Tumblr site, Porn4Jews takes secret (or not so secret) Jewish memes, and gives them a naughty twist in photos and words, inviting a little laughter as well as a knowing wink.

"Let's fiddle on the roof," suggests one man.

"It doesn't have to be Purim, for us to play dress up," says the sexy Jewess wearing a fetching jewel-encrusted crown.

In another, a dark and handsome man sits by a roaring fire in a loose robe, holding what look to be pages from the Torah covering his privates, as he teases, "Guess where I hid the afikoman?"

You don't have to be Jewish to appreciate Porn4Jews, but it couldn't hurt. Gentiles will need to have a dictionary close by.

That said, the message of the site is universal: Fuck and be happy!

Shanah Tovah!

Complaints Over Price of Gilead’s Hep C Cure

Complaints Over Price of Gilead's Hep C Cure

LOS ANGELES—There's good news and bad news about sofosbuvir, the new Gilead Sciences drug that cures hepatitis C, which currently afflicts more than 3 million Americans, and approximately 170 million people globally. "By comparison, about 1.1 million Americans have HIV, which has infected about 34 million people globally," reported NPR in an article published Monday.

ADVERTISEMENT


The good news is that the drug completely cures hep C, and requires only a few grams to do the job. The bad news is that Gilead is charging $1,000 a pill for sofosbuvir. "A typical course of treatment," noted NPR, "will last 12 weeks and run $84,000, plus the cost of necessary companion drugs. Some patients may need treatment for twice as long."

The article also claims that 90 percent of hep C patients are expected to be completely cured by the drug, assuming, that is, that they know they have the disease and, assuming they do, can afford the drug.

The price tag has a few people fuming, and Michael Weinstein, president of AIDS Healthcare Foundation is one of them. "For Gilead, we have outrage, pure and simple," he said.

Andrew Hill, a researcher in the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at the University of Liverpool, thinks the company is charging too much, considering the cost of production, arguing, "Even when we were very conservative [with our estimate], the cost of a course of these treatments would be on the order of $150 to $250 per person."

Hill used the cost of making similar antiviral drugs for HIV (approximately $1 per gram) to estimate the cost to produce sofosbuvir. "The amazing thing with hep C is you only need a few grams of these drugs to cure the infection," he added. "You need 10 grams or 30 grams of drugs."

Gilead has responded to complaints by arguing that the price is a fair reflection of the investment made to produce the drug, and that the cost will surely come down over time.

"We didn't really say, 'We want to charge $1,000 a pill,'" said Gilead VP Greg Alton. "We're just looking at what we think was a fair price for the value that we're bringing into the health care system and to the patients."

He added, "Those who are bold and go out and innovate like this and take the risk—there needs to be more of a reward on that. Otherwise, it would be very difficult for people to make that investment."

Another researcher, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, said that the cost may in fact be justified ... for the moment, and pointed to the fact that Gilead did not actually manufacture the drug, noting "that Gilead paid more than $11 billion to acquire a smaller company that developed sofosbuvir," and argued that the company had to be able to recoup that investment.

However, she also added, "You only need about 150,000 people to recover that cost. And so, if you're treating 2 million people, once you have recovered your cost, then I think it's ... I don't want to say it's unfair, but it does start feeling more exploitative."

She suggested that once the investment is recouped, Gilead should cut the price extensively.

"That's very unlikely that we would do that," responded Alton, adding, "I appreciate the thought."

When pressed about the need for cheap hep C cures in Third World countries, however, the Gilead VP admitted the price would have to come way down. "I don't think we'll be able to get it into the low hundreds. But I think we can get it into an affordable range for them. It'll be from the high hundreds to low thousands for these types of markets."

Meet the 2014 Nominees for All-Girl Performer of the Year

Meet the 2014 Nominees for All-Girl Performer of the Year

Posted Dec 31st, 2013 12:20 PM

If the more than 110 (!) categories in the AVN Awards devoted to the production of adult videos, only a handful of these specifically reward the efforts of performers in the so-called all-girl realm. Given the continuing growth of popularity in all-female erotica, we’ve decided it’s time to redress this imbalance with the addition of a new category. The basic criterion of eligibility for nomination in the All-Girl Performer of the Year category is to have released only girl/girl scenes during the awards eligibility period. That requirement barred a couple of strong contenders who happened to have done the odd boy/girl scene during 2012-2013, but there remained more than enough candidates to make up a full slate of talented, energetic and sensuous woman-loving women.

Elle Alexandra

ADVERTISEMENT


Lithe redhead Elle Alexandra worked as a commercial print model before moving over to the adult entertainment industry. Since her debut in 2011, she has appeared in fetish, solo and girl/girl videos for various companies, including FM Concepts, Shane’s World, Kick Ass Pictures, Reality Kings, and, of course, Girlfriends Films. She also can be seen in Meow 3 (Jennaration X/Jules Jordan), director Jenna Haze’s all-girl series. Alexandra has also done nude modeling for X-Art, Reality Kings, and Nubiles.net, and has been a Cyber Girl for Playboy.com and was Twistys Treat of the Month for May 2013.

Lily Cade

Striking in appearance with pale-white skin, natural red hair in a casual, almost unkempt Dennis the Menace bob and a natural curvy figure, Lily Cade started performing on camera in 2009. The strictly girl/girl performer is also a lesbian offstage, who married wife Sten in 2008 in the pre-Proposition 8 same-sex marriage window. Her nose-to-the-grindstone attitude (“I like to work”) has pushed her into directing and producing for Filly Films, while continuing an on-camera presence as a chameleon-like performer: In her scenes she can play coquettish or wanton, presenting the tender seductress or the hard butch on the prowl with equal effectiveness.

Cade has previously been nominated for AVN Awards for 2011 and 2012.

Shyla Jennings

A petite brunette, Shyla Jennings was born in Germany but now calls the U.S. home. Since entering the industry in 2010, she has remained strictly a girl/girl and solo performer, and much of her best work has been shot by Girlfriends Films. Among the series she has starred in are Net Skirts, Lesbian Seductions, Lesbian House Hunters, Women Seeking Women and Road Queen—all from Girlfriends.

A favorite of both adult critics and adult directors, Jennings’ work also resonates with the fans. In February 2011, her movie Poor Little Shyla (another Girlfriends production) was deemed the most successful video-on-demand release ever for HotMovies.com.

This past year she’s made the rounds in many well-known girl/girl series, including We Live Together (Reality Kings), Molly’s Life (Muffia) and Hot and Mean (Brazzers). (Photo courtesy Sweetheart Video/Mile High Media).

Justine Joli

Statuesque redhead Justine Joli started as a nude model for men’s magazines, including Hustler and Penthouse, where she was Pet of the Month for September 2007. She also appeared on such websites as Danni’s Hard Drive and Matt’s Models. She shot her first scene for Andrew Blake under the name “Justine” before adopting the name Justine Joli. She works girl/girl exclusively, and has been quoted as saying “I’m not comfortable doing boy/girl.”

On the mainstream side, the multiple AVN Award nominee has acted in an off-Broadway play about Roman emperor Caligula, Caligula Maximus, in 2010, and also appeared in the mainstream blaxpoltation parody film Black Dynamite.

Malena Morgan

Florida-born Malena Morgan went to modeling school as a teen and came to Los Angeles to pursue a career in adult at age 20. After initially establishing herself as a nude webcam model, Morgan moved to fetish, girl/girl and solo videos for companies including FM Concepts and Girlfriends Films. As a nude model, she has appeared in various magazines, including Cheri, Swank, Barely Legal and Club International, and was Penthouse Pet of the Month and the cover girl for November 2011, soon after appearing as Twistys Treat of the Month for September 2011.

Prinzzess

Born in Florida and raised in Belize, Prinzzess returned to Florida and started nude modeling upon reaching age 18, including a turn as Penthouse Pet for October 2004, and she moved to performing soon after that. Now 28, she has been a contract player for Girlfriends Films since 2009 and has performed in some 100 scenes for the company, while also maintaining a nude modeling career with folios at Playboy, Twistys, and Babes.com. She also has an active feature dancing career. She has only worked on-camera with women, and has described herself as “99 percent lesbian”: “When I’m in a crowd I’ll notice women I’m attracted to before I’ll notice that there are hot men around. So I don’t know exactly if this makes me more bi, or lesbian, but I’m definitely NOT straight.”

She has previously been nominated for AVN Awards for 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Sammie Rhodes

After starting as an all-round performer in 2004, Sammie Rhodes decided to switch to girl/girl only after about a year. Rhodes told AVN that when she did boy/girl scenes, she was always sore, exhausted and unable to have sex in her personal life.

“It’s not like you’re having sex at home where you do anything you want. You have to perform and it’s hard work,” she said.

She has appeared in more than 300 titles, including nine editions of Her First Lesbian Sex for Pink Visual and for companies ranging alphabetically from Adam & Eve to Zero Tolerance. On the mainstream side, she appeared in the music video for the song “Gives You Hell” by The Inevitable Backlash in 2010. She won an AVN Award in 2008 for Best All-Girl Sex Scene, Video for Babysitters from Digital Playground.

Raven Rockette

Beneath Raven Rockette’s quiet, almost diffident demeanor is the soul of a hardcore rock & roller. Starting her adult career soon after her 18th birthday, she was making plans to add music and mainstream acting to her résumé before her first year was over. Born in Los Angeles, raised in Las Vegas, Rockette stands 5-foot-4 with a 34D-26-34 figure.

“I absolutely love [working in adult],” Rockette told AVN. “I have so much fun. I love the people, I love being on set, I love working, all the lovely girls I get to work with. It’s a lot of fun. It’s a life-changing experience, for the best. I don’t think I’ve ever been happier in my entire life, or felt more at ease.”

One standout performance is her starring role in Gia: Lesbian Supermodel, directed by Nica Noelle for Hard Candy Films/AEBN, for which she was nominated by AVN for Best Actress. She’s also in the running for AVN’s Best New Starlet honors.

Layla Rose

Busty and petite Layla Rose started performing on camera in 2010, doing some 50 girl/girl, solo and fetish scenes for a list of companies that has included Digital Playground, Filly Films, Diabolic Video Productions, Lethal Hardcore, Girlfriends Films and Jules Jordan Video, where she was featured in Meow 3 this year. As a nude model, she has been on the Playboy Cyber Club and Digital Desire websites.

Spencer Scott

The number of Playboy Playmates who have crossed over into hardcore adult is very few, notably Miss April 1986 Teri Weigel. The latest addition to this group is Spencer Scott, Miss October 2007, who started girl/girl performing in Hustler Video’s 2011 release Barely Legal 123. She followed this with performances in videos ranging from I Kiss Girls 3 for Girlfriends Films to two appearances in the Hot and Mean series from Brazzers. She was also Twistys Treat of the Month for September 2012.

Sinn Sage

In the adult business since 2002, this brunette powerhouse revs up the energy level in whatever scene she’s cast in. Though she’s strictly a girl/girl performer, Sage works for a wide range of studios; in addition to all-girl specialists such as Girlfriends Films, Sweetheart Video, Girl Candy Films and Addicted 2 Girls, she’s also often done work with Evil Angel directors, particularly Belladonna. In 2012 she made her directorial debut, helming Sinn Sage’s A-Cup Lesbians for Filly Films. At last year’s AVN Awards Show she took the stage with Dani Daniels to share the honors for Best Girl/Girl Scene, delighting the crowd when she planted an enthusiastic kiss on her co-star.

Angela Sommers

Starting her adult career in her mid-20s, later than many of her colleagues, Angela Sommers has made her mark largely with Girlfriends Films titles. More than half of her performances are under the Girlfriends Films label—with roles in such series as Girls in White, The Creepers Family and Newswomen—and she’s also worked the studio’s booth at such shows as the 2013 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo. In addition, she has made nude modeling appearances on the Playboy Cyber Club, and was named the Twistys Treat of the Month for August 2011 and Penthouse Pet for May 2012.

Celeste Star

A Penthouse Pet of the Month for July 2005, perky Celeste Star has been a staple of the all-girl scene since 2004. A perennial AVN Awards nominee, she has shown her appeal by being in the running for honors in solo, tease and sex scene categories. She has proven to be a versatile actress as well, appearing in various features—most memorably in Cherry (Digital Playground), Tuff Love (Wicked Pictures) and Revenge of the Petites (AMKingdom). Star did some boy/girl scenes when she first started, but it’s clear she’s right at home working with girls. “I love the softness in a woman’s touch, the softness of their skin,” she says.

Sovereign Syre

A former nude model based in New York City, Sovereign Syre spent her first six months in the business shooting for director Nica Noelle. “I was very lucky to have people mentor me the whole way through,” Syre says. “I had thought about doing porn before, but I didn’t know people made the type of porn that she makes. I felt Nica would take care of me like no on else would.”

Syre’s first scene came in My Sister Celine with Dylan Ryan, which Noelle made for Sweetheart Video. Soon after that Syre worked at the director’s new company, Girl Candy Films, where she’s appeared in all three installments of the popular Lesbian Guidance Counselor series. Syre also did a very memorable turn this year in Dana Vespoli’s She’s Come Undone (Evil Angel).

Taylor Vixen

Debuting in Penthouse magazine’s 40th anniversary issue, Taylor Vixen immediately became a favorite among readers—not surprising given her naturally busty figure and pretty face. In short order, she was named 2010’s Penthouse Pet of the Year.

At the same time, Vixen emerged in adult video as a highly in-demand girl/girl performer, earning an AVN Best All-Girl Couples Sex Scene nomination for an interlude with Franziska Facella in Girlfriends Films’ Woman Seeking Women 55. Since then she’s been even busier—it would be easier to list the studios where she hasn’t worked than the ones where she has. Recently she was back at Girlfriends Films, where she appeared in the return of a fan favorite series in Pin-up Girls 8.

Digital Playground Releases 'Champagne Showers' Online

BURBANK, CA — Digital Playground is giving online viewers Champagne Showers. Jessa Rhodes stars as an aspiring singer looking to make her dreams come true in the big city of Los Angeles. Written and directed by Francois Clousot, Champagne Showers is available today online, right in time for the New Year.

Clousot says, “The film’s message is clear – never stop believing. Most people can relate to this film because everyone has a dream, whether it’s to be a lawyer, a porn star, or a singer, like Jessa. The film shows the journey of the struggle, but also the perseverance of believing and the success that comes with it. Not to mention all the sex that is involved! Champagne Showers is a tantalizing treat not to be missed!”

Champagne Showers follows small town girl Rhodes as she seduces her high school sweetheart, Tyler Nixon one last time before she embarks on a journey for super stardom. Rhodes soon realizes it’s harder than expected, since she’s receiving more casting couch offers than record deals.  

Things evolve quickly as she lands a job at a popular bar filled with sexy bartenders who teach her how to get by in LA. Kirsten Price and Layla Sin also share their own stories of unrequited love and secret lesbian affairs. Rhodes is further welcomed to her new city by hunky Keiran Lee.

The release features Nikita Von James, Breanne Benson, and Alektra Blue, who all end up playing a role in Rhode’s pursuit of her dreams. With seven hardcore sex scenes and a wonderfully wet ending, this release encourages fans to never give up.

Vivid Radio’s CEO Roundtable Promises Facts & Lively Discussion

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

Vivid Radio's CEO Roundtable Promises Facts & Lively Discussion

HOLLYWOOD—Friday afternoon saw something unique in the annals of adult industry history: The inauguration of a weekly internet radio program that brings together the "movers and shakers" of the adult industry for a discussion of its problems and issues by people who are actually in a position to do something about them.

"I want to bring in all sorts of people and it's not only people who agree with my viewpoint, because to be honest with you, that's boring. I want to bring in people who have all different sorts of viewpoints," explained Vivid Entertainment CEO Steven Hirsch, who will moderate each episode. "I want to talk about what really happens behind the scenes in the industry,  so I'm excited and ecstatic to have a forum like this to reach out to other people in the industry who don't necessarily get 60 minutes to talk about how they really feel, and hopefully people enjoy it."

ADVERTISEMENT


The topic of the roundtable's first discussion was one that's affecting everyone in the industry and many far beyond it: The requirement under the recently passed Measure B that all hardcore scenes shot in Los Angeles County must use condoms and other protective devices or be subject to large fines. To discuss that, Hirsch invited some of the industry's most influential personnel: Evl Angel CEO John Stagliano, Penthouse Entertainment Managing Director (and now the publisher of Penthouse magazine as well) Kelly Holland, Free speech Coalition CEO Diane Duke, and First Amendment attorney Paul Cambria, who's the primary attorney challenging Measure B on behalf of Vivid and two performers.

"It's been talked about a lot in the media, but there haven't been a lot of CEOs in the adult industry who have really tackled the issue of condoms and where we're going with them, what's happened in the last year," Hirsch framed the discussion. "Several people have tested positive, so the question is, where is the industry today and where are we going?"

Hirsch first asked Duke to give some background on the issue, and she summed up the situation, noting, "We haven't previously seen a lot of performers testing positive, and three seems like a huge number, but if you put it in perspective, just in LA County alone, there are five new cases of HIV daily, and when you look at these performers who have tested positive, this is nationwide... Only one of them is in the LA County area, so that tells you something, that it is really very rare for a performer to test positive, and then we found out that these transmissions did not occur on-set, so we've been able to show that, and so what is true is, you've got 4,000 performers and with those numbers, it's inevitable that somebody's going to end up positive for HIV. The good news is, because the program works, we are able to call a moratorium to make sure no transmission occurs on-set."

Duke's statements later led to a discussion of how the recent moratoriums had led AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) president Michael Weinstein to claim that the industry was now "in crisis," with Hirsch noting, "Hundreds of thousands of scenes have been shot since the last case of HIV that was contracted in the industry."

"I think the bottom line is to look at the group of people that work in the adult business and see if there's a greater incidence of HIV within that group—and remember, these are very sexual people," Stagliano added. "Diane has access to better data than I do, but I just found out that five people a day test positive for HIV in the LA County area, and if you multiply that by the number of days since the last time someone was infected on a set ten years ago in the adult industry, you find that we're clearly a safe place."

Cambria was on hand to recap the progress of Vivid's Measure B lawsuit, and while he noted that some provisions of the law, including the ability of the county health department to pull a company's shooting permits, had been struck down by Judge Pregerson in his most recent ruling, he nonetheless upheld the basic requirement that if there's sex, condoms must be used.

"A lot of my clients are not producing at all in LA County because it isn't a level playing field, because you have competitors from non-LA County places who can shoot without condoms," he said, adding that some productions have even "gone underground" to avoid inspectors.

"Ignorance is a big factor," he added. "A number of people on the street have no idea as to the detailed testing that went on and how effective it was and how there was a remarkably less incidence of HIV in the adult industry than there was the population as a whole, but to someone who doesn’t know that, it's like, 'Gee, how could it not be true? A condom would just solve all our problems.' Well, it doesn't work that way. There are issues here that are larger than that. The question is, are there other avenues that can be taken which would be just as effective if not moreso, and at the same time not violate fundamental constitutional rights, and that's really where we are here."

But for Holland, the Measure B fiasco was symptomatic of far deeper issues, some of which affected her personally.

"I believe that we are the vanguard of a very political voice for free speech and privacy," she stated. "I was a feminist when I got in this business and I'm still a feminist. I see no contradiction between pornography and feminism. Why don't I? Because at the base of all of this is a prevailing rule, law, standard, however you want to characterize it, which is, 'My body, my rules.' ... The bottom line on set is, do what you're comfortable with... But if you're comfortable with it, how arrogant for AIDS Healthcare Foundation or the public health department to think that these performers don't understand the risk. Is there risk? Statistically, almost none. Our cases don't happen inside this industry; it's outside activity and they bring it into the industry and public health and AIDS Healthcare Foundation should be thanking us and partnering with us at every level because we are intercepting those high-risk sexual behaviors and testing them every two weeks, and we're the ones that are the first line of defense... We're capturing all this information; the health department should be using it."

After noting the analysis of the county health department's statistics conducted by Johns Hopkins epidemiologist Dr. Lawrence S. Mayer, which found little difference between STD's in the adult industry versus the population at large, Duke agreed with Holland's stance.

"Every time we call a moratorium, AIDS Healthcare Foundation will come out and say 'There is a crisis. See? There's all this incidence of HIV in the porn industry'," she noted. "What's really important to understand is those people that contracted HIV this year would have contracted HIV whether or not they were wearing condoms on a set, and if the testing was not in place, those people may still not know that they have HIV and they would be having unprotected sex or thinking that they were safe and so, Kelly's right: We should be thanked because we are protecting people, we are encouraging people to have tests regularly, and I think our industry is an example... Every time a moratorium is called, it's proof that our system works."

Stagliano commented that considering the recent studies published in the news media about head injuries, it was clear that it's safer to be a porn star than a professional football player.

"No environment has zero risk," Holland stated, adding, "I think somehow we just inherited society's vision of us and are just a little apologetic. 'Well, you know, we're doing a really good job even though we're pornographers.' I feel that behind everything that we say, we still come out a bit apologetic and we can't get out in front of this issue."

Holland then brought up the fact that getting Measure B enacted cost AHF millions of dollars—money that could have been put to better use serving LA County's multitude of low- and middle-income HIV patients. Duke agreed, reminding the audience that that poor decision led a number of AHF workers to go on strike a few months ago, claiming that AHF was wasting its resources on political actions.

The actual discussion was much further-ranging than can be encompassed by one news story, but those who find the topic interesting can tune into Sirius XM Channel 102 for a rebroadcast—and every Friday at 4 p.m. for future shows.

"It's not only going to be about condoms and Measure B," Hirsch told AVN. "I want to talk about celebrity sex tapes—how does that work? The history of pornography, that's a pet project of mine that we're going to get started on. We're going to go all the way back to the Sixties and talk to the producers, the distributors and the performers. I know it goes back further than that, but I wanted to start with Reuben Sturman, who is the original porn king, and sort of the tree that he laid out, and everybody who's come as a result of that, and I know that I owe a great debt to him, and I think it would be fascinating for people to understand what it was really like in the Sixties and then the Seventies and the Eighties."

The Nintendo 3DS Porn Story Heard ‘Round the World

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

The Nintendo 3DS Porn Story Heard 'Round the World

LOS ANGELES—You'd think there was only one porn story this Christmas. Every news outlet ran the thing. In fact, we've lost count of the number of mainstream articles about the Virginia man who bought his 8-year-old son a new Nintendo 3DS at Walmart, only to have the boy and his friends discover as they were playing with it for the first time that the device contained a dozen porn photos. In many ways, stories like this, which contain only a few facts on which to build an article, are like a Rorschach test for journalists. In this case, it has already circled the globe a few times, allowing writers of all stripes the opportunity to add whatever level of commentary to it they desired.

ADVERTISEMENT


A story about a boy who finds porn on his new Nintendo is also tailor-made for our modern media, which likes nothing better than a Christmas story involving innocence betrayed and porn. That a kid and an "outraged" dad are involved makes it irresistible. Add in Walmart and you have a slam dunk story, and guaranteed eyeball-attracting headlines.

A few examples of which include:

Nintendo 3DS introduces dirty world of porn to 8-year-old

Dad buys son Nintendo with pre-loaded porn

Nintendo 3DS and porn, not so perfect together

Boy aged eight switches on new Nintendo 3DS to find it packed full of PORN

Nintendo 3DS: now with 100% more porn!

Another Christmas, Another Kid Gets a 3DS Loaded with Porn [VIDEO]

Of course, most people commenting on these stories failed to fall for the media hype, with many observing that the story is really about Walmart reselling returned goods as new, and reminding parents that like with porn in general, it's up to them to check the darn Nintendo before handing it over to the eight-year-old.

Oh, and in case anyone was wondering, Nintendo and sex are hardly strangers! Likewise, AVN reported on the 3DS' usefulness as an adult toy mere months after its release. Two and a half years later, it is hardly surprising that someone actually used it for that purpose, something Walmart and all retailers have to consider as they restock returned items to sell as brand new.

Evil Angel Director Darkko Delves into Gaping for ‘All About Ass’

Evil Angel Director Darkko Delves into Gaping for 'All About Ass'

Posted Dec 30th, 2013 02:31 PM

VAN NUYS, Calif.—Fans of adult director Jonni Darkko have more than a few reaons to follow the work of this busy Evil Angel director. Some are devotees of extreme oral scenes or extremely pretty Asian girls; others love his stylish camera work and creative soundtracks. Either way, they know what to anticipate.

Next month, however, Darkko is offering something slightly different: All About Ass, an exploration of anal sex that drills down as deep down as such oral series as Sloppy Head, Throat Fucks and Facial Overload.

ADVERTISEMENT


All About Ass, Darkko's first 2014 title,  will be released on DVD and VOD by Evil Angel on January 13. For a teaser, find the trailer now at EvilAngelVideo.com.

“Shooting All About Ass was a lot of fun,” Darkko said. And who wouldn't have fun exploring the inner recesses of backdoor beauties Vicki Chase, Bonnie Rotten, Zoey Monroe, Sheena Shaw and Gabriella Paltrova?

“I have wanted to do a POV-style gaping anal movie for some time,” he explained. “The time was right and the lineup was perfect!”

Darkko's enthusiasm was echoed in comments from his leading ladies. Chase, an anal aficionado herself, complimented her director's “willingness to go above and beyond creating the perfect look.” According to Chase, “all performers look forward to a “Darkko day,’ but personally speaking, Jonni and I have a connection when we work together. What the fans are getting is real fucking ... add anal and it’s beyond! All About Ass is just the way real porn should be.”

Rotten joined the chorus of admirers. “All About Ass was the first time Darkko put his dick in my ass, and boy I can tell you I was excited,” she revealed. “We have worked together on blowjob scenes, but the chemistry for this POV scene was great. ... I love anal, and I am telling you if you’re about ass, you’ll be all about this.”

Monroe, the young blonde featured prominently on the box cover, chimes in: “I had such a great time shooting a BJ scene with Jonni ... I was so excited to come back for anal! I put the biggest toys ever in my butt that day and I came sooo hard!”

Darkko manages to include some of his oral sex signatures, like deep-throat fellatio and creamy facials. But make no mistake, this new movie is All About Ass. “I really wanted to try and get the biggest gapes I could using huge toys and cock,” Darkko said. “It was amazing to work with Bonnie, Sheena, Gabi, Zoey and Vicki—some true anal sluts.”

BT Filter Blocks Cathedral Website, Too

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

The ISP has created 17 separate categories of content that can be filtered by its subscribers.

BT Filter Blocks Cathedral Website, Too

LOS ANGELES—It's hardly news that the rollout of the government's vaunted program has not gone according to plan. (No, not Obamacare; the British government's mandatory porn filter.) But the latest faux pas for leading internet service provider BT, which recently turned its filter to the on position, is the report that it blocked access to the website for Glasgow's St. Mary's Cathedral, and also blocked the personal blog of its provost, the Very Rev Kelvin Holdsworth.

According to Liberal Democratic Voice's Caron Lindsay, "I read both sites regularly and, needless to say, I’ve never seen anything anybody should be protected from on either of them. I suspect the reason they were blocked was because Kelvin writes a lot about LGBT issues and is a passionate campaigner for equal marriage. The Cathedral, being an inclusive and welcoming place even to atheists like me has an LGBT Group."

ADVERTISEMENT


BT, already under fire for the breadth of its default filtering, has since stated that the complaint about LGBT blocking was "in fact an accidental mis-description of the way our parental controls operate."

According to The Independent, "BT have now amended the description on its customer help website, replacing the reference to gay and lesbian lifestyle with the words 'sexual orientation'. The sex education blocking category remains."

BT further explained, "Some parents of very young children may wish to block sex education material. One of our optional filters does just that."

The explanation did not mollify Lindsay, who wrote, "It’s become very clear very quickly that these filters do exactly the sort of things that those opposing them (and who won the day) at Liberal Democrat conference last September predicted. This is the piece I wrote at the time. The motion was referred back to the Federal Policy Committee and we will presumably be debating a revised policy at a future conference.

"If our ministers’ strategy was to show how ridiculous Cameron’s porn filters are, well, that’s abundantly clear now," she added. "They need to now go back to work and continue to argue for the right things. It’s talk not tech that is best at combating the malign influences of much internet pornography."

The following list shows customers of BT "the different blocking categories you can select within Parental Controls and what types of websites they block":

Pornography:

This category will block sites that contain explicit sexual content. This includes adult products such as sex toys and videos, adult and escort services, strip clubs, erotic stories and descriptions of sexual acts.

Drugs:

This category will block sites that give information on illegal drugs or misue of prescription drugs.

Alcohol & Tobacco:

This category will block sites that promote or sell alcohol or tobacco related products or services.

Nudity:

This category will block sites that contain full or partial nudity. The content blocked will not be necessarily be of a sexual nature. This will include sites where the main purpose is to advertise or sell lingerie, intimate apparel, or swimwear.

Weapons and Violence:

This could be for sport or sites that contain images or text depicting or advocating physical assault against humans, animals, or institutions. Sites where the content is of a particularly gruesome nature will be blocked as well as sites that contain profanity.

Gambling:

This category will block sites that offer or are related to online gambling, lottery, casinos and betting agencies involving chance.

Dating:

Games:

Media Streaming:

This category will block sites that deliver streaming content, such as Internet radio, Internet TV or music. It will also block sites that provide live or archived media downloads. Fan sites or an official site run by musicians, bands, or record labels will also be blocked.

Obscene and Tasteless:

This category will block sites that offer advice on how to commit illegal or criminal activities, or to avoid detection. These can include how to commit murder, build bombs, pick locks, etc. Sites with information about illegal manipulation of electronic devices, hacking, fraud and illegal distribution of software will be blocked along with content that may be offensive or tasteless such as bathroom humour, or gruesome or even frightening content such as shocking depictions of blood or wounds, or cruel animal treatment.

Fashion and Beauty:

This category will block sites that relate to the advertising and discussion of fashion, jewellery, glamour, beauty, modelling, cosmetics or related products or services. This will also include sites where the main content contains fashion and beauty product reviews, comparisons, and general consumer information.

Homework:

Homework time provides an additional layer of protection over and above your day-to-day filters. This can be set to turn off/on according to the times you specify. Homework time will block social networking, gaming and cheating sites in addition to your usual controls.

Search Engines and Portals:

Search Engines and Portals will block sites where the main purpose is to enable the searching of the web, newsgroups, images, directories and other online content. Includes portal and directory sites such as white/yellow pages.

Sex Education:

This category is intended to prevent very young children from being exposed to sites that have a significant focus on subjects that might come up in a sex education programme. Parents should carefully consider the possible adverse effects from denying children of an appropriate age access to information on these issues.

Dominic Ford Embraces Google Glass

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

Dominic Ford Embraces Google Glass

NEW YORK—True to his reputation. Dominic Ford is embracing Google Glass with his customary zeal for new technology. According to The Sword, "Early adopter Dominic Ford has jumped right in and filmed what he’s claiming is the world’s first ever P.O.V. porn scene using (in part) the Google Glass to shoot it. It’s a flip-flop scene with sexy Jacob Durham (pictured) and Scott Harbor, and it’s just another in a series of technological leaps that Ford has made with his site."

ADVERTISEMENT


A trailer of the Durham-Harbor shoot is here.

Sword writer J.W. Waxner-Herman was thumbs up about the results of the shoot, noting, "For today’s Google Glass scene, the site is saying it’s 'Point of View Like You’ve Never Seen It Before,' and it’s true, without even a handheld camera, you can now see a performer face-fucking his partner with both hands on the pillows in front of him.

"Hot or not? I say hot," he adds. "So long as I don’t have to look too much at the guy wearing that ridiculous fucking thing on his face. Worst thing since the Bluetooth earpiece."

Interview: Jason Rouleau of CrakRevenue

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

Jason Rouleau of CrakRevenue

Posted Dec 27th, 2013 08:30 AM

Quebec-based CrakRevenue is a premium-performing CPA platform that has been a go-to for webmasters since 2010. Its focus: winning marketing strategies, innovative tools and a unique traffic-monetizing expertise acquired from experience as affiliates. The company strongly invests in R&D, resulting in better analytical tools and traffic management methods to increase ROI.

CrakRevenue provides a large selection of exclusive, thoroughly tested and proven top-converting international offers for every market. The platform’s innovative take on the market and approach to the traditional affiliate program has been acclaimed by big industry players like AVN and GFY.

ADVERTISEMENT


With comprehensive market insights and in-depth business analysis, CrakRevenue’s partners can enjoy reliability and continuous growth within the business. Marketing VP Jason Rouleau ansswers some questions in this article that originally ran in this year's Webmaster Access show guide.

AVN: Talk to us about your plans for expansion and world domination. We see you’re expanding into the German market. Who’s next?

Jason Roleau: We really want to focus on tapping into the lesser exploited markets. There are many developed Asian and eastern European countries that we can focus on with the right offers. Marketing to the bottom of the pyramid is something many companies avoid doing due to all of the cultural, lingual and technological barriers. We gladly take on the challenge!

Where are you seeing your biggest growth? What general growth trends are you seeing, and where?

Mobile, Mobile, Mobile. They’ve been saying it for years and we’re going to repeat it if you still don’t get it: Get into mobile now!

Are there any markets that you believe are dried up and have no future? Likewise, are there any new or developing markets opening up for adult affiliates?

Unless you’re thinking of launching your company on a dead technology such as VHS or 8mm film, I don’t think any particular market is dying. Many have slowed down and aren’t as lucrative as before. However, with some clever marketing, anything can make money.

As for developing markets, IPTV and other such proprietary technologies (think tablets, phones and consoles) are offering users their very own (private) adult experience. I think these platforms will enable us marketers to fine-tune the user experience to such an extent that the role of the customer will change from being solicited to becoming a solicitor. On-demand movies, live webcam shows and other interactive technologies are going to take up a bigger share of the market.

Would you encourage people to become adult affiliates now? If so, what is your most effective pitch to urge them to enter the industry?

I encourage anyone to become an adult affiliate. However, I always caution them that this industry has changed in the past few years. Only those that are organized, determined and ready to treat their online business the same way they would treat any brick-and-mortar business will make it in the long run. Gone are the days where you could work two hours a day and retire at the age of 30. There is considerable time and energy that needs to be invested before you can make it in our industry.

What are you most optimistic about for your own company and the industry as a whole?

We are currently coming out of a rough curve in our history. The tube model, the change in the affiliate model, the Google slaps and a whole slew of other factors changed the game for everyone. Many companies weren’t able to adapt quickly enough while others found an opportunity to prosper. Today, there is a whole new generation of webmasters who are innovating and bringing our industry to the next level. I’m glad to say we are part of that wave.

Fresh Face: Interview with A.J. Applegate

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

Interview with A.J. Applegate

Posted Dec 27th, 2013 08:30 AM by Buzz Killington

This article originally ran in the December 2013 issue of AVN magazine.

She started as an exotic dancer at 19 years old. But A.J. Applegate says that even at “a very young age” she was interested in the adult industry. “I was always comfortable with my body, and being shy was never a problem for me.” Then Applegate got into nude and fetish modeling. After that, she says, “I knew it was then the right time to try and get into the adult industry.” Now she’s working steadily and building buzz with her budding career as a performer.

ADVERTISEMENT


The Basics: Hometown: Massapequa, N.Y. | Age: 24 | Measurements: 34-26-38 | Hair: Blonde | Eyes: Blue

How were you growing up? Would your adult career be a shock to people?

One of my good friends actually texted me the other day. He said, "Do you remember saying you wanted to be a porn star in eighth grade? Now you are one!" [Laughs]. My friends weren't surprised at all. I think they all knew this was coming. Growing up, though, I didn't lose my virginity until I was almost a senior in high school. I was more like a closet freak.

Did you watch porn before getting into the biz? If so, what did you watch?

Yes, I watched a lot of porn growing up. I really looked up to Jenna Haze, Briana Banks, Sky Lopez and Jenna Jameson. I love watching g/g porn. That's what gets me off the most. I still watch porn to this day, but only old-school porn.

Did you have any jobs before porn?

I had a couple minimum wage jobs here and there during college. I took a break from school for a while, and started teaching dance. I also danced for a bunch of pro sports teams. After that, I joined a go-go dancing company in New York City. I still work for them when I'm home.

Tell us more about your dance background.

Dancing is a huge part of my life. I don't know what I would do if I couldn't dance anymore.

I can't go too in-depth about who I danced for, because that is something I would still love to go back to. I can say that I danced for two arena football teams, and a semi-pro basketball team. Also, I was the director/choreographer for a professional soccer dance team.

How experienced were you sexually before porn? Has performing revealed new fetishes you previously hadn't discovered?

I think before entering porn, I had already reached my sexual peak. [Laughs] I was used to a lot of fetishes from dancing at a club, too. I do love that porn has allowed me to fulfill my most desirable fantasies. The one act I never did in my personal life before porn was anal. I was always really scared it was going to hurt. Porn showed me the right way to go about it, and that it does feel good.

What are your favorite things about your job?

Well, obviously that I get to have sex with all these beautiful people, and get paid for it! [Laughs] I get to share all these amazing sexual experiences with my fans, and get recognized for my passion toward sex. I think everyone has a porn star deep down inside them. I'm grateful that I get to share that side of me with everyone.

What's the one main thing that civilians don't get about the industry? The biggest misconception?

Civilians just don't understand how I can have sex with all these people and not gain feelings for them. I won't deny, there are certain male performers that I have amazing chemistry with, but at the end of the day we're all there for the same reason—to make an awesome scene. Of course, I've become close with a lot of people that I have worked with. Just like any other job, you have to separate your professional from your personal life.

What turns you on the most?

If you're an amazing kisser you can definitely turn me on! I love when a guy/girl takes there time with me. I love foreplay with a little bit of tease. Oh my, I think I just made myself wet!

Are there any companies you want to work for or talent you want to work with?

The one company I wanted to work with so bad was Elegant Angel. I would still really love to shoot for Digital Playground, and Jenna Haze's company. One of my main goals is to get the cover of Hustler or Penthouse. I've worked with most of the guys, but there are a bunch of girls I'm still dying to work with. I really want to do a scene with Ashley Fires, Kayden Kross, Riley Reid and Riley Steele.

If someone just discovered you, what scenes would you tell them to watch?

I would definitely tell them to watch one of my anal scenes. If I had more g/g scenes I would want them to watch one of those too!

If you could change anything about the business, what would it be and why?

Honestly, I don't know what I would change. If I could shut down all these free sites I would! I guess I wouldn't mind if they made everyone get full panel testing either. Other then that, I do love the industry the way it is.

Do you think porn stars are unfairly stigmatized? Are you afraid of this after you're done performing?

I feel that people who are not open-minded judge us in an unfair manner. Though no matter what business you're in, you can never please everybody. I've always said what people can't understand scares them, and that's definitely true when it comes to this industry. I'm not really afraid of how people are going to judge me when I'm done shooting. I knew what I was getting myself into when I entered this business. I have a lot of things that I want to pursue when I'm done shooting. I'm not going to let judgmental people affect me.

What would you ultimately like to accomplish in this industry? Where do you see your career headed?

I want to get the most out of this experience that I can. I hope that I can shoot as long as possible. Maybe even MILF status. [Laughs] I would love to eventually get the opportunity to direct or have my own production company. No matter what I do after the industry, I'm hoping I can use my name as a marketing tool and not have it be something negative.

What do you enjoy doing on your time off?

Of course, I'm always dancing or working out when I have off. I recently got into fitness, so I'm going back to school to get my personal training certification. When I'm home I make time for my friends and family, because they keep me sane. I also have the best dog in the world, so he gets most of my time.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to enter the industry?

The best advice I could give to someone is be yourself. Don't let what other people are doing in their career affect what you want to accomplish. If you don't feel comfortable with doing something speak up, and don't let anyone take advantage of you. Make sure you're entering the industry for the right reasons, that way you'll get the most out of this experience that you possibly can!

Steven Hirsch Launches ‘CEO Roundtable’ on Vivid Radio Today

Posted Dec 27th, 2013 08:20 AM

LOS ANGELESVivid Entertainment’s Steven Hirsch will launch a new monthly show called CEO Roundtable on Vivid Radio, SiriusXM Channel 102 today at 4 p.m. PT, with rebroadcasts throughout the weekend and through Monday, Dec. 30.

“The business of adult entertainment has often been the topic of great interest to the mainstream media and we expect we’ll break a lot of major new stories on this show,” said Hirsch, who founded Vivid in 1984 and now serves as its co-CEO. “It’s great to have a regular, unfiltered national media platform that will enable the industry to speak for itself, talk about the challenges we face and the strategies we are using to present great entertainment to our fans.”

In the premier episode, Hirsch will be joined by John Stagliano, owner of Evil Angel Productions, Kelly Holland, Managing Director of Penthouse Entertainment, Diane Duke, CEO of the Free Speech Coalition, and prominent free speech attorney Paul Cambria.
 
Hirsch’s program will be a candid, behind-the-scenes exploration of adult industry topics. “It’s not just one company’s opinion,” Hirsch explained. “We’ll present a fascinating cross section of differing points of view from panels that often will include competitors, to give in-depth, unrehearsed insight about our industry.”

Topics to be discussed will include studios leaving L.A. County if the mandatory condom ruling is upheld; whether adult movies will be hotter if they are made outside of L.A. County and whether the industry can change and adapt rapidly enough to stay relevant.

AVN Announces 2014 Hall of Fame Inductees

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

AVN Announces 2014 Hall of Fame Inductees

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Each year before the AVN Awards Show, taking place this year on January 18, AVN Media Network elects a handful of memorable individuals to be honored by induction into the AVN Hall of Fame. Many are performers and directors—the folks in the original video-based Hall of Fame. But since its inception other branches have been added to the AVN Hall of Fame: a Founders Branch, for those who created companies back in the day; an Internet Founders Branch, for those who built the online sector; and a Pleasure Products Branch, for manufacturers, distributors and retailers of sex toys.

ADVERTISEMENT


This year, AVN has added another limb to the tree: the Executive Branch, for key members of the industry who work behind the scenes in the C-suite or excel in other capacities—for example, in sales, marketing or education. As in the other branches, a minimum of 10 years in the industry is required for consideration.

Induction into the AVN Hall of Fame is not, however, an automatic rite of passage that happens after a decade. Many of the performers who are inducted have been in the industry far longer. Every year, Hall of Fame committee members confront a list of deserving candidates, looking to come up with a mix of talent, all of whom have attained not only longevity but also something more important: memorable achievements in front of the camera, behind the camera and back in the office. Each of the 2014 inductees, we can assert, more than meets those criteria, and we present them without further ado.

AVN Hall of Fame - Founders Branch

Kevin Beechum
Kevin Beechum is the founder and CEO of K-Beech, a content production and distribution company for the past 25 years. Over the decades K-Beech has produced content via 15 different production companies: 818 XXX Productions, Baby Doll Pictures, Baby Doll Hardcore, Backend Productions, Sex Line Sinema, Cherry Boxxx Pictures, Cherry Boxxx Explicit, Cherry Boxxx Black, Cherry X Productions, Dreamland Video, Erotic Angel, Erotic Men, Midnight Mayhem, Midnight Men and Midnight Film & Video.

Ted Blitt
The founder of Mile High Media, Ted Blitt has been in the adult content business for more than 20 years. His company entered the market as a Canadian licensee of mainly American erotica in 1989; Blitt would purchase the Canadian rights, duplicate the movies on VHS and sell them across Canada. He brought his two sons, Jon and Robert, into the family business. Next, Blitt took the company in a new direction: producing compilations—which led to the creation of its own original content via the Doghouse Digital brand in 2003. Other studios soon followed, including Sweetheart Video in 2008 and Sweet Sinner in 2009, both collaborations with director Nica Noelle, and Reality Junkies, also in 2009. In 2013 the company took another big step and allied itself with director Mason and Gamma Entertainment to create two new studios—Hard X and Erotica X—with OpenLife Entertainment. In terms of the quality of its story-drive productions and the polish of its all-sex content, Mile High is as traditional as studios come. But it’s also modernized itself as a worldwide multimedia provider, with licensed content on all platforms, including broadcast, IPTV, VOD and mobile. The company recently launched a studio mega-site, MileHighMedia.com, through FameDollars.

Morty Gordon
Bizarre Video founder Morty Gordon started his company in 1985 in his native New York, and it was based there until 2004. For most of that time, Bizarre Video occupied the same building in Brooklyn as Teddy Rothstein's Star Distribution and the novelty company Nasstoys of New York. As befits its name, Bizarre’s core fare was fetish specialties, including bondage, big boob, spanking, she-male, foot fetish and wrestling. The Bizarre catalog contains titles featuring such industry legends as Debi Diamond, Sharon Mitchell and Nina Hartley, as well as newer names like Julie Simone, Anastasia Pierce and Adrianna Nicole. Gordon’s son, Keith, brought the company to the West Coast in 2004 and was for a brief period in business with Jill Kelly Productions. Bizarre Video is still in existence today, but Gordon passed away on April 12, 2013, at age 76. Son Keith reminisced about his father’s role in the history of the adult industry. A lot of people, he said, do not understand the challenges that faced pioneers like Morty Gordon. “We spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending these movies,” Keith recalled, noting that his father would always say, “I'm not doing anything wrong. I'm not breaking the law.”

Video Branch

Barrett Blade
Musician turned porn star Barrett Blade broke into adult in 2000 and quickly became a much-sought-after performer. His young, rock star looks and passionate sex scenes made him a favorite among women. It also scored him a Best Three-Way Sex Scene award at the 2005 AVN Awards for his performance in Erotic Stories: Lovers and Cheaters (New Sensations). These details were not lost on Wicked Pictures, which would go on to cast Blade in many of its scripted, couple-oriented features. In 2006, Blade made his directorial debut with the Sin City release Smokin’ Crack. A shooting contract with the studio followed, leading to Blade’s first feature, Inferno. Three years later, hot on the heels of a Best Supporting Actor win for Wicked’s Coming Home at the 2008 AVN Awards, the studio added Blade to its roster of directors. This year, Blade directed the Wicked features Bikini Outlaws and Harvest Moon, Reign Productions’ Dear Diary… I Love Sex and Tasha’s Reignbow Pony Tales, and the Devil’s Film parody Just In Beaver Fever.

Shylar Cobi
A 20-year adult industry veteran, Shylar Cobi is the producer behind many of Vivid Entertainment’s blockbusters, including Paul Thomas’ award-winning features Throat: A Cautionary Tale, Layout, Janine’s Been Blackmaled, The New Devil in Miss Jones and The Masseuse. A one-time restaurant manager, Cobi joined the industry when the establishment’s owner sold the business to focus on his career as a porn agent, providing Cobi with a gig at his agency. When Cobi met his wife-to-be, a PA for Thomas, his fate was sealed. In 2007, Cobi made his directorial debut with Vivid’s Curvaceous, based on his own script. Since then he has written and directed Curvaceous 2 and Working Girls, and helmed Teases and Pleases 2 and this year’s Black on White. Cobi also continues to produce many of Vivid’s current hits, including Thomas’ The New Behind the Green Door, a sequel to the Mitchell Brothers’ classic; Kimberly Kane’s Devil on a Chain; and the multi AVN Award-winning Axel Braun parodies Star Wars XXX and Spider-Man XXX. In an interview with entertainment site Collider.com, Cobi said, “I like to work on shows that have a story. Everybody else fast-forwards through the story. I always fast-forward through the sex. I’m weird that way.”

Robby D.
Little is known about award-winning director Robby D.’s early life, beyond the fact that he went to film school at UCLA—but when he took the full plunge into adult movies, he started out at the top, directing for Vivid Video beginning in 1998. Robby was instrumental in helping the company move away from releasing strictly features, creating for them gonzo series like Action Sports Sex, Watcher and Color Blind. "We loved working with him," reflected Vivid VP Marci Hirsch. In 2002, Robby moved to direct exclusively for Digital Playground, where he remains today—and with whom he's won a plethora of awards, including 2005's Best Gonzo Series for Jack's Playground (which he described in 2004 as his favorite series), 2007's Best POV Series for Jack's POV, 2008's Best Specialty Series – Other Genre for Jack's Leg Show and Best Vignette Release for Babysitters, and a trifecta in 2009: Best POV Release for Jack's POV 9, and both Best Vignette Release and Top Renting and Selling Release for Cheerleaders. And all of this without our ever learning, why “Jack”?

Stormy Daniels
Louisiana-born Stormy Daniels is doubtlessly among the most colorful, and most beautiful, performers to work in the adult industry. She’s been on top for more than a decade, ensconced as a Wicked Pictures contract performer since 2002. In 2004 she made her directorial debut with One Night in Vegas, and she’s now a powerhouse director-screenwriter, producing female-friendly adult entertainment that ranges from the light (Divorcees) to the romantic (Meant to Be) to the dramatic (Wanderlust). Among the accolades she’s earned over the years are two AVN Awards biggies: Best New Starlet in 2003 and Crossover Star of the Year in 2007. (Examples of her mainstream visibility include appearances in The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up, and the “Draft Stormy” campaign, when a group of fans attempted to recruit her to run against Louisiana Republican Senator David Vitter in 2010.) This year Daniels’ directorial work garnered 14 AVN Award nominations, plus a nomination for Best Safe Sex Scene for her performance with Brendon Miller in François Clousot’s First Crush.

Ben English
Ben English entered the U.S. adult industry with back-to-back wins as Best Male Newcomer at the 2004 AVN Awards followed by Best New Stud at the 2004 XRCOs, and he is credited with appearing in more than 900 productions. In 2000, he started talent-representation company LA Direct Models using his real name, Derek Hay. LA Direct now represents more than 100 performers and has grown into representing behind-the-camera talent and location rentals. He is semi-retired from active performing.

Melissa Hill
Tiny Melissa Hill, a San Francisco native, began acting in adult in 1993, essaying more than 200 movies for a wide variety of producers over the next 10 years until her retirement from hardcore. During her career, she was nominated for several AVN Awards, winning the Best Actress – Film award in 1997 for Penetrator 2 (Pleasure Productions) as well as for her participation in that year's Best All-Girl Sex Scene – Film in Dreams of Desire (Astral Ocean Cinema). The following year, she was named Best Supporting Actress – Film for Paul Thomas' Bad Wives (Vivid), and was named 1998's Unsung Siren by the X-Rated Critics Organization (XRCO). She has also appeared in several mainstream productions, notably the porn-ish comedy Orgasmo from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Hill has had a life-long interest in ballet, and spent most of her childhood studying the craft, even becoming a ballet instructor for five years after graduating high school. She continues to act in non-sex roles in adult features, including Beyond Fucked: A Zombie Odyssey and Measure X.

Mike John
Before entering the adult industry, Mike John spent a lot of time traveling through Central and South America, surfing and staying off of the grid. He ended up in Costa Rica, and it was there in 1996 when he connected with Chris and Greg from Anabolic Video during the search for locations and talent for World Sex Tour 8. John was offered a job shooting for Anabolic when he returned to the U.S., working with Sean Michaels on the Up Your Ass series, as well as helping out with handheld camera duties for The Gangbang Girl movies. It was in the editing bay, however, that John took things seriously, learning the strengths and weaknesses of handheld shooting and developing his own style. John was one of the first to start shooting POV-style scenes, and was the first to put out a handheld POV line with top-tier female talent. After leaving Anabolic, John went on to Red Light District and started several lines, including No Cum Dodging Allowed, POV Pervert, Teenage Spermaholics and Boobaholics Anonymous. The popularity of those lines led to him joining Jules Jordan Video in 2006.

Katsuni
That face, those cheekbones, the artfully arched back and perfect derriere—French-Vietnamese beauty Katsuni was born to be photographed. She entered the adult industry in 2000 as a performer for Penthouse France, back when she was known as Katsumi, and came to the U.S. in 2003. (She was forced to change her original stage name because of legal action taken by a French communications adviser named Mary Katsumi.) She logged a few years with Digital Playground—signing an exclusive contract with the studio in 2006 and appearing in productions including Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge, Fly Girls and Teachers—but a list of her more than 370 titles shows that she’s worked for most of the major studios in the biz. In addition to many AVN Award-winning turns on screen, she also excels as a feature dancer, has started her own lingerie line, Petit Coeur, and is a writer for Dorcelle.com, Marc Dorcel’s adult website for women. In 2013 she was seen in the documentary Aroused, directed by Deborah Anderson, and she triumphed in a lawsuit again rapper Bow Wow, who used footage of her in his music video Drank in My Cup. She announced on Facebook on August 14 that she was retiring. We can only say it was a beautiful 13 years.

Scott Lyons
Performer Scott Lyons has appeared in some 1,600 scenes, by his own count, in a career that started in the year 2000 and includes four AVN Awards. He entered the business with wife Brandi Lyons, at a time when "the industry didn't like couples. But we showed them couples could be freaks." A frontman for a band before entering the adult industry (“I’ve been on stage since I was 15”), he has used his acting abilities to ride the parody wave, most recently appearing in the Steve Buscemi role in an upcoming parody of Boardwalk Empire. He's still an active performer, saying with a laugh, "I'm a lifer."

Nick Manning
Blessed with movie star good looks and acting chops to match, Nick Manning was a casting director’s dream when he entered the adult industry in the early 2000s. The former model and semi-pro baseball player made his debut in the Wicked Pictures feature Mirage. In 2003, he was named Best Male Newcomer by AVN. Manning’s acting talent is rivaled by his love of “dropping loads,” a catchphrase that not only expresses his enthusiasm for hardcore sex, but was instrumental in making him a beloved guest on The Howard Stern Show. “Dropping Loads” is also the name of Manning’s signature porn series, and the title of a forthcoming biography and documentary. Manning, who has held minor roles in the Oliver Stone film Any Given Sunday and Sam Raimi’s For the Love of the Game, scored his first leading role in a mainstream film in 2011 with the indie thriller Cherry Bomb. Manning also cameoed in the Jason Statham actioner Crank 2 and on Hulk Hogan’s VH1 reality show Hogan Knows Best. Regardless of his crossover appeal, Manning’s focus remains in adult. This year, while promoting his new series Nick Manning Cocksman for Hire, he told AVN, “I love what I do. Even after all this time, there is nothing better than wrecking chicks and dropping loads.”

Eric Masterson
Eric Masterson is a familiar face to fans of scripted features. Since making his debut in Sin City’s Dream Master, the 15-year veteran performer has starred in such notable titles as Camp Cuddly Pines Power Tool Massacre, Bride on the Run, Dallas: A XXX Parody, Superman vs. Spiderman XXX and Spartacus MMXII: The Beginning. While Masterson admits to finding features more interesting, he still derives plenty of enjoyment from his gonzo work, for which he has received multiple award nominations. In 2007, Masterson scored a Best Group Sex Scene - Video award for Wicked Pictures’ FUCK.

Mr. Pete
In 2003, only a few days after the release of his directorial debut The Dark Side, Mr. Pete told AVN, “I can't fuck forever so I want to branch out and do other things.” Judging by the more than 1,800 titles he’s performed in since joining the adult industry 13 years ago, the Nevada native and multi AVN Award winner may have sold himself short on the fucking forever front. One thing’s for sure: he got the branching out part right. In addition to being one of the most prolific performers working today, Mr. Pete is an accomplished director who cut his teeth early on for Multimedia Productions, Devil’s Film, Hustler and VCA, before landing exclusive contracts with New Sensations in 2004 and Red Light District in 2006. To date, Mr. Pete has directed 89 movies, including this year’s Mr. Pete’s POV 2 for Vivid Entertainment. Living by the mantra “work-in-progress,” Mr. Pete continues to strive for artistic growth, while never losing sight of his duties as a devoted father.

Bobby Rinaldi
Perhaps best known for directing the wildly popular Screw My Wife Please!! series from Wildlife Productions, where he also served as production manager for many years, Bobby Rinaldi got his start in the business in the late ’90s. He was president of Tight Ends Productions, Wildlife's original incarnation and the birthplace of the Screw My Wife Please!! series. In addition to being a pioneer in the cuckolding genre with that flagship franchise, Rinaldi directed many other series, including Girls Home Alone, Pussy Playhouse, Handjobs and Dirty Newcummers. In recent years, Rinaldi branched out into the sexual enhancement sector of the industry as co-owner of Narra Distributors, the company behind Nite Rider and G-Spark arousal pills for men and women. Rinaldi passed away in February.

Taylor St. Claire
Taylor St. Claire started in 1995 as a girl/girl performer, then moved to boy/girl in a career that includes more than 400 productions and has been honored with six AVN Awards, including "Best Actress – Film" in 2003 for The Fashionistas (Evil Angel). She is also active in the fetish scene, directing and performing in videos and operating websites dedicated to FemDom.

Wendy Williams
Multi-AVN Award nominee Wendy Williams’ entry into the world of adult entertainment is a bit unclear, but we know that as early as 2000, a friend introduced her to the world of transsexuals on the internet. Within two years, Williams had her own site featuring nude photos of herself, and had taken the plunge into adult video by appearing in the movies of fellow transsexual star Joanna Jet. Since then, she has appeared in nearly 50 movies and has directed more than 15, most often for her own production company, Hot Wendy Productions. Wendy has been a frequent nominee for AVN's Transsexual Performer of the Year honors, winning the award in 2009. She was also only the second transsexual actress to present an AVN Award on-stage, which she did with mainstream comedienne Margaret Cho. Wendy has also won awards from several other adult industry groups. A communications major in college, Williams now has her own PR firm repping several adult performers—straight and trans—from her base in Lexington, Ky.

 

Executive Branch

Jerry E.
Known to most people in the adult industry as "Jerry Juicy," Jerry E. (his preferred nom de porn) has been in porn for nearly 20 years, starting off as a salesman before opening his first distributorship, Juicy Entertainment, in the late ’90s, and his production arm, Exquisite Multimedia, not long thereafter, and even more recently, Exile Distribution, which he co-owns with veteran salesman Howard Levine. There would hardly be enough room to name all the lines and directors Juicy and Exile distribute, but with sure sellers like Rodney Moore, Peter North and Jordan Septo among the group, it's no wonder Jerry's a success. A longtime comic book fan, Jerry also created a line devoted to parodies of superheroes, Extreme Comixxx.

"Distributors like Jerry have been around so long because they have not burnt bridges," reflected Evil Angel General Manager Christian Mann. "Jerry's one of the ones who's created a hybrid of the Evil Angel model, where part of his success is [that] his directors who own their own content are incentivized to shoot for quality rather than just budget efficiency, and in so doing, he's had some really good lines. On the sales side of it, Jerry is a highly affable genuine guy. To know Jerry is to like Jerry. He's an honorable guy who doesn't take himself or the business too seriously. We need more of that."

Adam H.
Adam H. has been part of the adult industry since 1998. What began as a summer job in his Uncle Keith’s warehouse at Bizarre Video eventually led to a sales manager position. The company’s 2004 merger with Jill Kelly Productions relocated Adam to Los Angeles, where he became further integrated into the industry.

An opportunity to join Frank and Michael K’s team at IVD brought Adam home to New York City.  His sales role with Pleasure Productions rapidly expanded, and he was soon at the helm of the operation.  In recent years, Adam’s responsibilities have grown to encompass overseeing Vantage Distribution, Evolution Distribution and Pure Play Media, as well as the development of DreamZone Entertainment.  Beyond his experience in video production and distribution, Adam’s role with Adventure Industries has made his face one of the most recognizable in the industry. His career journey shows him to be one of the most dedicated and hard-working contributors to the adult industry.

Ed Kail & Marty Turkel
Ed Kail, who hailed from the Bronx, N.Y., got his start in the business at Caballero Video during that company's early-1980s golden years. There he met Marty Turkel, who hailed from Brooklyn and began his career in the adult business in the early 1980s with California Video Distributors, an early offshoot of Caballero. The two became best friends and sales tag-team partners, and after approximately three years, the pair moved over to VCA together, where they reigned supreme for nearly two decades to follow. In 2003 they parted to pursue new ventures, with Turkel taking over the West Coast Office of Bo Kenney's LGI Digital (parent company of SexZ Pictures), and Kail joining daughter Bonnie at Devil's Film, where he took charge of domestic sales for Elegant Angel, which Devil's distributed at the time. Kail later took over sales at DVSX, while Turkel went on to manage sales for a time at Juicy Entertainment. Both have passed on, with Turkel dying of a heart attack in 2009 and Kail passing away from lung cancer in 2013, but their reputation as the industry's most revered sales duo remains intact.

Pleasure Products Branch

Lavi Yedid
Lavi Yedid has worked in top positions for some of the biggest manufacturers of pleasure products for more than 25 years. He got his start in the business in 1989 when he was hired as director of operations for New Beginnings. He spent 14 years there before moving to Doc Johnson. Yedid spent eight years at Doc Johnson as head of product development for the mega-manufacturer. Most recently, Yedid was named head of product development at NS Novelties, where he has been credited with helping the brand gain worldwide notice and acclaim in just two years. His skills within the novelty business include product development, marketing strategy, new business development, sales management, retail marketing, strategic planning, sales, product marketing, merchandising, brand development and more.

Robert Pyne Sr.
The founder of the adult distribution company Williams Trading Co., Robert Pyne Sr. was working as a Philadelphia firefighter when he started looking for ways to make extra money. He began selling various products before he sold 8mm stag films. Williams Trading Co. will celebrate its 40th anniversary next year. While the senior Pyne has stepped away from the company—he enjoys playing Texas Hold ’Em at a local casino a few times a week and spends time with his wife Carole and dog Misty—his children are running the show these days. In addition to being named to the AVN Hall of Fame this year, Pyne was also selected to receive the Lifetime Achievement at this year’s “O” Awards for his contributions to the industry.

Rachel Venning and Claire Cavanah
With stores in Brooklyn, SoHo, New York's Lower East Side, and Seattle, not to mention a strong web presence at Babeland.com, adult retailer Babeland is serious about its slogan: "Sex toys for a passionate world." Co-founder Rachel Venning says the company won't be happy until it puts "a vibrator in every nightstand." Venning and co-founder Cavanah opened their first store in Seattle in 1983. Named Toys in Babeland, it was launched as a woman-friendly alternative to the gritty adult stores that were dominating the business. The pair had been in sex-toy stores and felt alienated, so they set out to create an environment where any woman would feel comfortable shopping. They were among only a handful of adult retailers who were looking to make women feel comfortable when shopping for pleasure products, and have helped lead the revolution of adult retailers taking on a more boutique feel.

Internet Founders Branch

Angie Rowntree
Over a decade ago, Angie Rowntree imagined a place where women could explore their sexuality in a safe, like-minded community. In 1999, she founded Sssh.com, the web's oldest and largest "Erotica For Women, By Women" premium site. Angie spent the intervening years gathering together a crew of talented writers, sex educators and filmmakers, each of whom contributes to an ever-evolving women-centered space on the internet. And it has flourished! Since its inception, Sssh.com has become a favorite online destination for an extraordinary diversity of women of all ages and from all walks of life, in ways Angie herself never could have imagined. It is for this singular achievement, as well as for her invaluable contributions to the success of Wasteland.com, that Angie's place as an adult industry original is secure.  

Freeones.com Founder Maurice
Maurice is the owner of free adult-star and celebrity site Freeones.com, which launched in 1998. Freeones, a site that was successful almost from the beginning, was first conceived as a hobby in the attic of Maurice's home. Maurice had always liked the idea of a site dedicated to indexing links of beautiful women. When the site was started there were only a handful of babe sections while today there are more than 10,000 babe sections with more than to 150,000 links listed. There is also a very active user community.

Greenguy
In 1996, Greenguy launched Link-O-Rama, his popular adult link site, which has been called “a veritable Yahoo of smut.” With its lively splash page of lime green text filled with fun age-restriction warnings (“don’t visit these free XXX links … if you have never seen the movie The Blues Brothers but you did see Blues Brothers 2000”), the webmaster welcomes browsers to a pornucopia of content in myriad niches. The site, which is still in operation, represents the tip of the iceberg of Greenguy's talent for traffic as well as his many contributions over the years as a consistent and constructive voice with deep insights into the vagaries and mysteries of the adult online industry.

Do Porn-Loving Utahans Secretly Support Same-Sex Marriage?

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

A recent study suggests the answer is a resounding yes!

Do Porn-Loving Utahans Secretly Support Same-Sex Marriage?

UTAH—While the decision by Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes to appeal a recent ruling by a federal judge striking down the state's law against same-sex marriage may on its face make perfect sense—Utah, after all, is known to be one of the most conservative states in the Union, so an official opposition to same-sex marriage would seem to be a foregone conclusion—in terms of reflecting the true attitude of Utah's citizenry, it's quite possible that the state is getting it all wrong. A study earlier this year strongly suggests that Utahans in their heart of hearts actually support same-sex marriage.

ADVERTISEMENT


The study, which was conducted by Indiana University professors Paul J. Wright and Ashley K. Randall and published in the academic journal Communication Research, found that straight men who watch porn are more likely to support gay marriage.

Add that finding to the longstanding fact that Utah is one of the most porn-friendly states in the Union—historically placing at the top in terms of porn searches and subscriptions—and you have a syllogism made in same-sex heaven.

* Straight men who watch porn are more likely to support same-sex marriage.

* Utahans rank at the top in terms of porn consumption.

* Utahans (at least the straight ones) support same-sex marriage.

It's not a scientific conclusion, to be sure, but it makes twisted sense to us and we're going with it. In line with that thinking, we also suggest that AG Reyes and his reactionary brethren take a moment to reconsider their knee-jerk reaction to the decision by U.S. District Judge Robert J. Shelby, who wrote in his ruling that Utah's laws prohibiting same-sex marriage deny "its gay and lesbian citizens their fundamental right to marry and, in so doing, demean the dignity of these same-sex couples for no rational reason. Accordingly, the court finds that these laws are unconstitutional."

While Reyes and his ilk may take those to be fighting words, it's a little more than idle conjecture to suggest that the porn-loving citizens of his state take no issue with them at all.

Dennis Hof Moving Ahead with Plans for Canadian Brothels

Dennis Hof Moving Ahead with Plans for Canadian Brothels

Posted Dec 26th, 2013 05:00 PM

NEVADABunny Ranch owner Dennis Hof has announced he is going full steam ahead with plans to expand his seven-brothel Nevada empire into Canada by opening legal houses of prostitution in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver in 2014. Hof’s announcement comes on the heels of the recent unanimous decision by the Canadian Supreme Court declaring anti-prostitution laws unconstitutional throughout the northern nation.

Hof had previously explored the idea of opening a chain of “Bunny Ranches” in Canada, but put the plans on hold pending the Canadian Supreme Court decision. Now, with the final legal barrier removed, Hof says he wants to have at least three Canadian versions of his flagship Bunny Ranch up and running by the end of next year.

“I have always appreciated that Canada has a very progressive view of women’s rights, and prostitution, and there are lessons the U.S. can learn from them,” said Hof. “In the U.S., legal brothels are restricted to just a few counties in Nevada, but Canada is now wide open, and we intend to make the most of it!”

While prostitution itself was not illegal in Canada, the landmark ruling struck down three related laws concerning street soliciting, living on the earnings of a prostitute and maintaining a brothel. Now, all three, pending a legal re-write by the Canadian government, are permitted.

Hof added that he and his advisers, along with a platoon of "Bunny girls," will undertake a “tour” of Canada early next year to scout out brothel locations. He said he has already been approached by dozens of wealthy Canadian investors wanting to get in on the ground floor of what will become that nation’s first-ever fully legal brothels.

Hof said he is eager to join Canada in celebrating their newfound X-rated freedoms, and estimated the current underground sex trade in Canada exceeds $5 billion annually.

“The Canadian Charter of Rights And Freedoms—their version of the US constitution—has prevailed for the people and prostitutes of Canada. Now it’s time to make sure it’s done the right way so legalized prostitution is a win-win-win for everyone involved—from the customers, to the girls, to the public,” said Hof.

Mainstream Media Offers Sex Predictions For 2014

Mainstream Media Offers Sex Predictions For 2014

CYBERSPACE—We gotta admit we love this time of year. As writers for AVN, we spend every day of the year writing about sex, sexuality, sexual health and everything in between. What is everyday subject matter for us is a novelty, no pun intended, for mainstream media.

In the final days of each year, mainstream media is struggling to look for stories to fill their pages or websites. And inevitably, they look to sex to spice up their pages and grab readers’ attention.

ADVERTISEMENT


Take, for example, The Times Of India, published a story claiming that in 2014, couples will forgo all the accoutrements of light BDSM/kinky sex they have purchased in droves during the Fifty Shades of Grey craze and instead look for items that “bring a longer-term investment in intimacy between partners.”

Based on the LELO Global Sex Survey 2014 which the manufacturer plans to release in full next month, the article and many like it claim that sex will be a little more vanilla in the coming months as partners try to please each other as opposed to fly their freak flags with one another.

An article from Refinery29.com claims 2014 will be “the year of the Vanilla Revolution.”

On the flip side, The New York Times is claiming that technology and sex will merge together in 2014 and the future. (Yeah, we thought that was a pretty cutting-edge prediction, too … not.)

After attending a screening of Spike Jonze’s Her, the NYT writer discusses the relationship between Joaquin Phoenix’s Theodore and Samantha (Scarlett Johansson), a computer-operating system.

“This may sound like futuristic sci-fi dystopia to some, but such sexual-techno prospects are increasingly the here and now,” the writer boldly claims, and mentions pleasure products from Minna Life and AEBN’s RealTouch. Yes, the same products readers of AVN have been reading about and seeing at the AVN Novelty Expo for years.

So, as 2013 winds down and we at AVN prepare for 2014 and The AVN Show in January, where many manufacturers will display the latest and greatest in sex toy technology, forgive us if we ignore the predictions and reports on sex from mainstream media, and get our info straight from the biggest names in the industry.

Curve Mag Jan/Feb Issue Features Jiz Lee on the Cover

Posted Dec 24th, 2013 02:33 PM

LOS ANGELES—Not only does Curve magazine include an article on leading queer sex trailblazers, including pornographers, in its Jan/Feb 2014 issue, but it also features popular queer porn star Jiz Lee on the cover, along with the tantalizing tagline "In Bed with Jiz Lee."

Titled "Viva the Queer Sex Revolution," the article in the annual Sex & Romance Issue includes looks at Lee, Shine Louise Houston, Tristan Taormino, Nina Hartley, Annie Sprinkle, Buck Angel and Dr. Carol Queen.

ADVERTISEMENT


According to Lee, "It's incredible to be the cover model of a national magazine, especially as a porn performer. While the magazine is not an adult publication, they devote their Jan/Feb issue Sex & Romance, covering marriage equality alongside All of Her, a new erotic video I was a part of by 101 Lesbian Sex Positions author Jude Schell.

"The article uses my preferred gender pronouns (they/them), which is great as a genderqueer performer," added Lee. "I've already received letters from readers who were excited to see the gender identity in print. Furthermore, Curve profiles pornographers like Shine Louise Houston and Tristan Taormino, whose work represents diverse queer bodies and sexualities. Curve will be out on newsstands nationwide and has the world's largest lesbian readership, so it's a major boost in the visibility of queer pornography."

A digital version of the article is available here, but subscription is required to access the entire contents of the issue.

Adult Boutique Robbery Ends in Police Shootout

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

One alleged robber is killed, the other wounded in chase that ended in a shootout with police

Adult Boutique Robbery Ends in Police Shootout

ELOY, Ariz.—An early morning robbery yesterday at an adult boutique in rural Arizona ended in a car chase and shootout with police that left one of the alleged robbers dead and the other wounded and in custody. The store, M Passion Adult Boutique in Picacho Peak, which is southeast of Eloy, was the scene of the initial crime at around 6:30 a.m.

"The suspects reportedly tied up the store clerk and held her at gunpoint while they robbed the place," reported azfamily.com. "She was not hurt and was able to get loose and call 911 as the suspects fled with the company's safe."

ADVERTISEMENT


Fortuitously, a Pinal County Sheriff's Office deputy was in the area and saw the suspect's car leaving the scene. "Lights and siren on, the deputy tried to stop the driver, but the suspect refused to comply," reported the news site. "At times, the suspects' vehicle hit speeds of 120 mph."

The chase lasted all of ten minutes, when the "suspects' vehicle exited on to northbound Highway 87."

According to a PCSO spokesperson, "The suspect vehicle pulled into a dirt field and then the suspect vehicle and deputy’s vehicle collided. Initial information is the two armed suspects exited the vehicle and shot at the deputy. The deputy returned fire and shot both suspects."

One of the suspects was killed at the scene, while the other was airlifted to a hospital with a leg wound. Both were ex-cons. "The deceased suspect is 32-year-old Matthew Clowers. He spent 10 years in prison for Aggravated Assault and Armed Robbery," reported azfamily.com. "The suspect in the hospital is 23-year-old Adam Chavez. He served eight months in prison for Endangerment and Theft."

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu was unabashed in his praise for the first-responder deputy, saying, "Our deputy involved in the pursuit and shooting is a highly disciplined patrol deputy who is a member of our special weapons and tactics team."

Of the alleged robbers, he was less complimentary. "These armed robbers tied up the female clerk and thought they were getting away with the cash from the register and the safe, yet our deputies were quick to catch these bad guys," Babeu said in a news release. "In the end, our deputies go home safe and one suspect goes to the morgue and the other to the hospital before life in prison."

‘Go Away Cameron’ to Prime Minister: Merry Christmas, Sucker!

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

Merry Christmas, Sucker!

LOS ANGELES—You have to admit, the fact that Google Chrome now has an extension designed to circumvent the new British porn filters is ironic in the extreme when one considers that Google was one of the "tech giants" called on the carpet a few months ago by Prime Minster David Cameron about their allegedly limp efforts to combat kiddie porn on the internet. Now, in the British government's singular achievement for 2013—the imposition of countrywide porn filters that extend into people's homes—perhaps the biggest tech giant of them all is indirectly undercutting that very achievement. Merry Christmas, Mr. Cameron!

ADVERTISEMENT


Google did not create the "Go Away Cameron" Chrome extension, of course. A Singapore-based fellow who goes by @nubela can take credit for that. But the open-source technology in Chrome didn't impede the effort, and probably helped. "I built this Chrome extension to bypass UK's censorship," wrote the creator of his work-around. "It is the easiest way to access blocked sites. Simply install the GAC Chrome extension, login, and the blocked sites are immediately bypassed." Easier than watching free porn on your favorite "streaming" site!

It's not like the filters were humming along perfectly before Go Away Cameron upended them. According to TechRadar.com, "Reports say hardcore porn sites are slipping through the cracks, while legitimate sex education sites are being blocked."

As predictable as all of this was, one can't help but worry how Cameron, other ISP porn filter supporters and the British public in general will react to the rather swift erosion of their plan to place a condom on the nation's web access. Normally, when such an excessively vaunted campaign hits the skids, the government doubles down on its efforts. With filters, which are notoriously inexact at their best, methods to make them more effective often result in more false positives, while efforts to decrease false positives inevitably result in less stringent filtering, resulting in a pendulum swing of control that leaves no one happy and no one truly protected.

This is the ISP filter game at its essence: a dashing of expectation when reality inevitably sets in. Hopefully, as the dust clears, frustrated Brits will not conclude that their only recourse is to stop playing nice and take the hard step of requiring all porn sites to resettle in an online ghetto designed to further restrict or control access to them. Instead, as so many have suggested, the better way will be for the government to chill out, back off and allow parents to be parents by making these decisions completely and freely for themselves.

German Courts Consider Legality of Redtube Letters Sent by Firm

German Courts Consider Legality of Redtube Letters Sent by Firm

COLOGNE, Germany—A court in Cologne is revisiting an earlier decision allowing German ISPs to give a law firm contact information for tens of thousands of users who were sent intimidating letters warning them to pay a fine for watching illegal porn ... or else. According to the BBC, "The firm, Urmann, acting on behalf of Swiss copyright company Archive, targeted users it said had viewed content on porn-streaming site Redtube."

ADVERTISEMENT


Unlike prior end-user tactics plied by aggressive law firms in Europe and the United States, this time the German firm accused people of being liable for alleged piracy accomplished via streaming as opposed to the sharing and downloading of copyrighted content. As AVN has reported, the law firm considers Redtube a "test case" for future letters targeting similar activity.

"Now," adds the BBC, "the court in Cologne says it has examined complaints from dozens of people who received the copyright infringement warning letters, which demanded a 250 euro (£210) payment," and has determined that the complaints raise "considerable" doubts about the legality of the letters, and calling laws on streaming ill-defined.

The law firm reacted to the statement by the court with indignation, "defending itself against claims it had issued a false affidavit to the court. The firm called on the court to withdraw the allegation." A final ruling by the Cologne court is due in January.

However, a different court in Hamburg has also issued a temporary injunction "against Urmann and Archive preventing them from sending warning letters to Redtube users alleging copyright infringement."

In a statement reacting to the injunction, Redtube said, "This ruling is a victory not just for Redtube users, but for anyone who accesses a streaming website.

"It sends a clear message that the exploitation of personal information and the violation of privacy for financial gain will not be tolerated," added the site.

Texas School District Investigates Website Porn Hack

Posted Dec 23rd, 2013 05:17 PM

ROUND ROCK, Texas—Police in Round Rock, Texas, are investigating an incident that took place this weekend in which the school district's website was porn hacked. According to KHOU.com, "JoyLynn Occhiuzzi with Round Rock ISD says around 11:30 p.m. Saturday, the system for roundrockisd.org was hacked, with obscene images and inappropriate messages posted on the district and campus websites."

The district websites are operated by an outfit called SharpSchool, which had the school site taken down by 1 a.m. Sunday, replaced with a message that informed visitors, "Due to a site security issue, access to this site has been temporarily disabled."

"Round Rock Police detectives are now investigating the crime," reported the news site. "Occhiuzzi says that RRISD plans to press charges on whoever made the hack."

As if anyone but students had a motive.

Val Midwest Appeals 45-Day Jail Sentence

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

Val Midwest Appeals 45-Day Jail Sentence

LINCOLN, Neb.—Shortly after her sentencing Friday on trespass and public nudity charges, adult performer Val Midwest filed a notice of appeal with the court, after which she was released on $75 bail, according to the Lincoln Journal Star. The sentence of 45 days was levied by Lancaster County Judge Thomas Fox, who was so obviously incensed by Midwest's actions in May—when she snuck onto the grounds of her former high school, Pius X, and shot some nude photos, which she then uploaded to the Web—that he even denied a request by her attorney that the sentence begin in January. In other words, ruled the compassionate judge, no Christmas for Val.

ADVERTISEMENT


But Midwest and her lawyer had probably already planned to appeal the sentence, no matter what it was, and may even have anticipated that it would not be a "slap on the wrist," as the city attorney feared.

According to the Star, Midwest's attorney, Chad Wythers, who told the court that the entire episode had "operated as a deterrent" to his client, "didn't ask for a specific sentence, but argued that people convicted of first-offense DUI cause more risk to others 'than parading around naked,' and the most they get is a week in jail."

The city attorney, Christine Loseke, responded that anything less than having the proverbial book thrown at her would be a travesty of justice. "I think she deserves jail for what she did," inveighed Loseke, reasoning that the 19-year-old had shown no remorse for her deeds.

Judge Fox was of similar mind. He "handed down the 30-day sentence for trespassing, plus 15 days for public nudity," reported the Star, "and said simply 'no' when asked if [Midwest] could report to jail in January. Dodds looked incredulous as a deputy walked up to handcuff her."

Nice people they have on the bench in Nebraska.

"With credit for good time," added the paper, "she will have to serve 30 days if her conviction and sentence is upheld."

Time will tell, of course, if the jerk quotient in the Nebraska courts extends to the judge who will hear the appeal, which now goes to Lancaster County District Court.

Sex Toy Expert Kim Airs Plays Santa On ‘Arsenio Hall Show’

Sex Toy Expert Kim Airs Plays Santa On ‘Arsenio Hall Show’

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—Kim Airs, a veteran of the pleasure products industry and owner of adult online retailer Grand Opening, made an appearance on a recent episode of The Arsenio Hall Show as a naughty and nice Santa Claus.

After a Los Angeles Times article about Airs’ tradition of dressing up as Santa, hopping on her motorcycle and delivering toys to children throughout Los Angeles’ inner-city neighborhoods, Hall contacted her to appear on last Friday’s show.

ADVERTISEMENT


The segment started with Hall introducing Santa, and shows Airs riding her motorcycle onto the stage. After Hall notes Santa is a woman, Airs introduces herself and talks about her six-year tradition.

Airs explained she uses her own money to purchase the toys throughout the year, and then delivers them in the days leading up to Christmas in South Central, Compton and other neighborhoods.

“I go wherever my motorcycle wants to go,” she said.

While Airs rifles through her bag of goodies to show Hall and the audience the types of toys she hands out, he takes a moment to present her with a $1,000 gift card for Toys R Us to help with her shopping for next year.

But the fun didn’t stop there: Eventually Hall asked Airs what she does for a living. Her answer of “I’m a sex toy expert” is received with some nervous giggles and “oohs” and “aahs” from the audience.

And to finish off the segment, Airs and Hall ventured out into the audience with yet another bag of goodies, but these were of the more adult variety.

Among the presents given to audience members were items from Sportsheets.

Audience and staff members were surprised with a selection of best-selling and popular bondage accessories from the award-winning Sex & Mischief collection, including beginner fantasy kits, floggers, cuffs and restraints, and even a few wildcards.

“Pleasure is the gift that keeps on giving and being featured on The Arsenio Hall Show gives us a unique opportunity to spread our message of ‘Keeping Couples Connected’ during a key sales season,” Sportsheets President Julie Stewart said. “We wanted to give everyone a fun and inviting experience and chose items from the Sex & Mischief collection, which is designed for new and curious couples to try together. And we put aside a few select items that we thought Arsenio might especially enjoy!”

Girlfriends Rings in Xmas With 100th 'Women Seeking Women'

VALENCIA, Calif.—Girlfriends Films offers something special to help lovers of lesbians warm up this Christmas Eve with the 100th volume of its tentpole Women Seeking Women series.

Releasing Tuesday in a special two-disc collector’s edition DVD set, Women Seeking Women 100 features four brand new scenes, plus four bonus scenes containing the series’ most popular lesbian pairings ever, as chosen by fans.
 
“Watching thousands of copies of Women Seeking Women 100 ship from our warehouse to distributors and stores around the world was one of the proudest moments of my life,” Girlfriends owner Dan O’Connell said. “The series has always held a special place in my life, and it’s incredible to see how fans and critics have embraced it for 100 volumes.”
 
The first disc of Women Seeking Women 100 is composed of the new scenes, which O’Connell says are four of the best scenes shot by the studio over the course of 2013. The scenes are as follows: Heather Starlet and RayVeness; Ariella Ferrera, India Summer, and Zoey Holloway; Prinzzess and Veruca James; Bonnie Rotten and Dana DeArmond
 
The second disc of Women Seeking Women 100 includes: Brea Bennett and Cody Milo (Women Seeking Women 19); Lena Nicole and Faye Reagan (Women Seeking Women 36); Prinzzess and Tori Black (Women Seeking Women 49); Dana DeArmond and Syd Blakovich (Women Seeking Women 54).
 
Throughout September and October of 2013, Girlfriends Films fans were invited to submit their favorite scenes from the bestselling series, spanning the past 11 years. The four most frequently submitted scenes were chosen for Volume 100’s bonus disc.
 
Girlfriends vice president Moose commented, “Sales for Women Seeking Women 100 have been outstanding. We’ve reached one major milestone through the movie’s release, but I believe once all the copies ship and re-orders begin pouring in, we may reach another—our bestselling all-girl movie ever.”
 
The first volume of Women Seeking Women released on October 1, 2002 to immediate commercial and critical acclaim. “The makers of this videotape clearly understand where femme lesbian and bisexual women are coming from,” AVN’s Darklady wrote in her AAAA review. “Every scene is living proof. … Great stuff.”
 
Women Seeking Women is the longest running and most successful lesbian erotica series of all time. The series’ continued quality and popularity are evident in its six consecutive Best All-Girl Series awards from AVN Media Network, as well as the same honor the past four years from XRCO—2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Quick2257 App Now Available for On-The-Go Recordkeeping

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

Developed by attorney Larry Walters, the mobile application will help producers keep compliant with federal regs

Quick2257 App Now Available for On-The-Go Recordkeeping

CYBERSPACE—As everyone knows, the federal recordkeeping and labeling law, 18 U.S.C. §2257, is still in effect, even as it continues to be challenged in the courts, with an appeal about to be filed of Judge Michael Baylson's ruling following the trial of the case. So it probably behooves adult producers to continue keeping 2257 records—and First Amendment attorney Lawrence G. Walters has come up with an application for iPhones and iPads—arguably the most common forms of computer in the industry—that will make that job a whole lot easier—and with an introductory price of  99 cents, the app itself couldn't be cheaper.

ADVERTISEMENT


"The potential for a device allowing creation of compliant 2257 records has interested me for years, but the technology just wasn’t available until recent advances in mobile application technology," Walters told AVN. "Website operators, webcam models, escorts and other performers have struggled for years with various ways to create and submit 2257 records and associated IDs to the designated records custodian, using a variety of inconsistent platforms, networks, and compliance approaches.  This application is intended to solve that problem."

Among the tasks the app allows a producer or his/her assistant to do are:

• Create a form containing the performer’s legal name, stage name, and/or aliases
• Record the date of original production of the depiction
• Identify the title of the work associated with the depiction
• Capture the front and back of the performer’s picture ID card using the device's camera
• Sign and verify the accuracy of the information using the touch screen
• Compile all information into a convenient .pdf file; and,
• Send the 2257 records file to the records custodian using the mobile device’s email function

As the application's website notes, "Recently, individuals with little legal training are required to create 2257 records in a specific format required by federal law. Quick2257 now allows anyone with an iPhone or iPad to create the necessary performer records, and transmit them to the records custodian, in a matter of minutes."

"The app allows the user to submit the necessary 2257 information, and guides the user through the process with optional explanations for new users," Walters said. "My philosophy in representing adult entertainment clients has always been that legal advice must be combined with related technology, to provide the most effective tools and solutions to modern legal problems encountered by the industry. That’s why we have permitted our clients to use the patented BirthDateVerifier, the DMCANotice.com devic, and various other technological aids to make routine legal compliance easier...  Our hope is that both our clients and others in the industry will find this app both simple and effective as a means of compliance with Section 2257, which can sometimes be intimidating for both performers and website operators."

Walters said his development team is working on adapting the app for Android users "so that all mobile users will have access to the device." 

"Getting the app approved by the Apple iTunes Store was the most important initial step, given Apple’s suspicion of anything erotic in nature," Walters noted, half injest. "But now that Quick2257 has been approved in iTunes, we’re moving on to the Android version, which will not be subject to the same rigorous vetting process."

So all you producers who want to get up to speed on the latest compliance software, click on over to Quick2257.com and give it a whirl.

Canadian Supreme Court Voids 3 Anti-Prostitution Laws

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

Even though prostitution is legal in Canada, the high court found the 3 laws made the profession more difficult and less safe

Canadian Supreme Court Voids 3 Anti-Prostitution Laws

OTTAWA, CN—The Supreme Court of Canada today unanimously struck down three laws aimed at decreasing the public presence of prostitutes across the country. The laws, which made it illegal to run a "bawdy-house"—what Americans would term a brothel, illegal to live off the "avails" of prostitution—what Americans would call pimping, and illegal to solicit customers on the street, were all struck down as violations of Canadians' "fundamental rights" under the Canadian Charter. However, in order to give Parliament a chance to draft new prostitution regulations, the high court delayed implementation of its ruling for one year.

ADVERTISEMENT


"[E]ven accepting that there are those who freely choose to engage in prostitution, it must be remembered that prostitution—the exchange of sex for money—is not illegal," wrote Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin. "The causal question is whether the impugned laws make this lawful activity more dangerous. An analogy could be drawn to a law preventing a cyclist from wearing a helmet. That the cyclist chooses to ride her bike does not diminish the causal role of the law in making that activity riskier. The challenged laws relating to prostitution are no different."

Specifically at issue are actually four sections of the Criminal Code: Sections 197.1 and 210, relating to bawdy-houses; 212, living on the avails; and 213, communication in public for the purpose of engaging sexual services, all of which the high court found to be in violation of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which "guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in it subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society." Some of those rights include "freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication," as well as "the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice."

The case was brought both nationally and in the province of Ontario by Toronto-based dominatrix Terri-Jean Bedford, current working prostitute Amy Lebovitch and former prostitute Valerie Scott, who argued that the laws made their professions less safe.

"The prohibitions all heighten the risks the applicants face in prostitution—itself a legal activity," wrote the Chief Justice. "They do not merely impose conditions on how prostitutes operate. They go a critical step further, by imposing dangerous conditions on prostitution; they prevent people engaged in a risky—but legal—activity from taking steps to protect themselves from the risks. That causal connection is not negated by the actions of third-party johns and pimps, or prostitutes' so-called choice to engage in prostitution. While some prostitutes may fit the description of persons who freely choose (or at one time chose) to engage in the risky economic activity of prostitution, many prostitutes have no meaningful choice but to do so.

"[T]he law not only catches drivers and bodyguards, who may actually be pimps, but it also catches clearly non-exploitative relationships, such as receptionists or accountants who work with prostitutes," the decision continued. "The law is therefore not minimally impairing... The harms to prostitutes identified by the courts below, such as being prevented from working in safer fixed indoor locations and from resorting to safe houses, are grossly disproportionate to the deterrence of community disruption. Parliament has the power to regulate against nuisances, but not at the cost of the health, safety and lives of prostitutes."

While the government attorneys left the courthouse without commenting, the three appellants and their attorney, Alan Young, were on hand to make statements and answer questions.

“Wow! Yes! Great day for Canada and Canadian women from coast to coast," stated Terri Jean Bedford, cracking the whip she'd brought with her for the occasion. "Now the government must tell Canadians, all consenting adults, what we can and cannot do in the privacy of our own home, for money or not, and they must write laws that are fair."

This is "the first time in Canadian history that sex workers are truly persons, we are truly citizens of this country," said Valerie Scott. "We will be able to work with Canada Revenue Agency, occupational health and safety, workers compensation ... pension plans. Yes!"

However, Scott added that Parliament should not attempt to restrict the profession of prostitution even further, and should consult current and former prostitutes in drafting legislation that will affect the working women.

"Politicians, though they may know us as clients, they do not understand how sex work works, they won’t be able to write a half-decent law; it will fail," Scott warned. "Sex workers must have a lot of input on how any new laws are written."

If Parliament fails to enact, within a year, measures to replace those that were struck down, the Supreme Court's decision will take effect, allowing prostitutes to form and work in brothels, hire bodyguards, accountants and even receptionists, employ closed-circuit monitoring of the house's activities and even invite potential customers they meet in public places back to the house for some paid pleasure.

However, Federal Justice Minister Peter MacKay stated that the government is reviewing the court's decision, and that they are "exploring all possible options to ensure the criminal law continues to address the significant harms that flow from prostitution to communities, those engaged in prostitution, and vulnerable persons. We are committed to the safety of all Canadians and the well-being of our communities."
