Classic Gay Porn Art Exhibit at MOCA L.A. Now Through January

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

Exhibit features the art of Bob Mizer and Tom of Finland.

Posted Nov 13th, 2013 01:25 PM

LOS ANGELES—Now through January 26, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles is presenting Bob Mizer & Tom of Finland, the first American museum exhibition devoted to the works of Mizer (1922-92) and Touko Laaksonen (1920-91), the man behind the Tom of Finland name. 

"Curated by Bennett Simpson and guest co-curator Richard Hawkins," notes FrontiersLA, "the MOCA show features a selection of Laaksonen’s iconic and masterful drawings, collages and books, juxtaposed with Mizer’s photographs, films and a collection of his groundbreaking magazine, Physique Pictorial.

ADVERTISEMENT


"Presented in collaboration with the Bob Mizer Foundation and the Tom of Finland Foundation," it continues, "the exhibit seeks a wider appreciation for Mizer and Laaksonen’s art, considering their aesthetic influence on generations of artists, both gay and straight, while also acknowledging the artists’ profound cultural and social impact, most importantly in providing open, powerful imagery of queer sexuality in an era of rapidly shifting attitudes towards homosexuality."

A description of the exhibit put together by MOCA adds, "Spanning five decades, the exhibition seeks a wider appreciation for Tom of Finland and Bob Mizer's work, considering their aesthetic influence on generations of artists, both gay and straight, among them Kenneth Anger, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, David Hockney, G.B. Jones, Mike Kelley, Robert Mapplethorpe, Henrik Olesen, Jack Pierson, John Waters, and Andy Warhol."

It continues, "The exhibition also acknowledges the profound cultural and social impact both artists have made, especially in providing open, powerful imagery for a community of desires at a time when it was still very much criminal. Presenting the broader historical context and key aspects of their shared interests and working relationship, as well as more in-depth solo rooms dedicated to each artist, the exhibition establishes the art historical importance of the staggering work of these legendary figures."

Bob Mizer & Tom of Finland is presented at MOCA Pacific Design Center, 8687 Melrose Avenue, West Hollywood, California 90069. More information about the exhibit can be found here.

The filmmaker, photographer and artist was laid to rest this weekend at a moving and well-attended memorial service at Forest Lawn Glendale.

This Friday there will be a fundraiser and silent auction that offers Batts' fans, friends and colleagues an opportunity to purchase artwork in his memory. The Los Angeles arts community is rallying to raise money to assist his wife and muse—adult performer April Flores—with the many costly bills incurred in the wake of his death.

The fundraiser and silent art auction will take place at Antebellum Gallery on Friday, November 15 from 6 to 9 p.m. Works of art will be on display and ready to be picked up by winning bidders that night.

Some of the biggest names in contemporary art—including Coop, Matthew Bone and Shepard Fairey—have donated works.

Adult entertainment icons Buck Angel and Nina Hartley will also have artwork available for bid.

The auction will also include work by Carlos Batts himself, donated by Flores. Batts had exhibited in photography and sculpture in galleries, and a selection of recent work will be available in the silent auction.

All proceeds from the event will go to April Flores for the purpose of defraying the costs associated with Batts’ passing.

Those who cannot attend the fundraiser but still wish to help help Flores and Batts’ family defray expenses associated with the funeral can donate funds via Paypal to CarlosBattsMemorialFund@gmail.com, or send them to a Bank of America account under the name of Angelica Centeno, account number 3250 3004 6353.

N. Korea Executes 80 for Viewing Porn, Soap Operas

Posted Nov 13th, 2013 12:13 PM

NORTH KOREA—UPI is citing media reports out of South Korea claiming that 80 people have been executed across North Korea for accessing forbidden content, including pornography.

In an article published Tuesday, UPI stated, "The executions of about 80 people occurred Nov. 3 for relatively minor infractions, such as watching South Korean movies or distributing pornographic material, Korea Joongang Daily reported Monday."

ADVERTISEMENT


While no executions apparently took place in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang, people were reportedly executed in cities such as Wonsan, Chongjin, Sariwon and Pyongsong.

In Wonsan, added the wire service, "Eight people tied to stakes at a local stadium with their heads covered were shot with a machine gun, a source told Korea Joongang Daily. Witnesses said Wonsan authorities brought about 10,000 people, including children, to the stadium and forced them to watch."

Robert Pyne Sr. Earns Lifetime Achievement At ‘O’ Awards

Robert Pyne Sr. Earns Lifetime Achievement At ‘O’ Awards

Posted Nov 13th, 2013 09:30 AM

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—Robert Pyne Sr., who founded the adult distribution company Williams Trading Co., will be honored at the 5th annual “O” Awards with the Lifetime Achievement award.

Each year, voters for the “O” Awards choose one person who has worked to advance the industry and made a major impact among colleagues and employees.

Pyne 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.

ADVERTISEMENT


“He saw the money and demand for the product,” son Robert Pyne Jr. told AVN. “He opened his first store in 1972 and opened Williams Trading in 1974.”

The younger Pyne said the family story is his father wasn’t sure he wanted his name involved in the business in those days, so rather than call the company Robert Trading, or Pyne Trading he chose Williams, after his second son.

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.

Robert Pyne Jr. runs operations, while Bill Pyne is the warehouse and project manager, Bethann Smith is a buyer, Rich Pyne is the internet and special projects manager, Tim Pyne is the warehouse receiving manager and in-law John Anderson oversees inventory control.

The next generation sticks to the ideals their father set forth: Knowledge, service and fill rate.

“We learned to work hard, that nothing comes easy,” Pyne Jr. said of the lessons he and his siblings learned from their father. “Always take care of your customers and relationships with vendors.”

Those lessons have translated into four decades of success for a company that employs almost 60 people in Pennsauken, N.J.

Pyne will be given his Lifetime Achievement award during the 5th annual “O” Awards ceremonies, which take place Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2014, during the AVN Novelty Expo at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas. The awards show and trade show are part of the AVN Show, which runs Jan. 15-18, 2014.

The “O” Awards recognize innovative and outstanding products that are raising the bar in the novelty and pleasure products industry. All trade attendees of the AVN Show are welcome to attend the “O” Awards.

‘Bang with Friends’ App Changes Name to ‘Down’

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

Name change comes after a settlement with Zynga, which had sued Bang with Friends for trademark infringement.

'Bang with Friends' App Changes Name to 'Down'

LOS ANGELES—In June, we reported on a trademark lawsuit brought by casual game maker Zynga against the operator of a new app called Bang With Friends. Zynga complained that the app infringed on its "with friends" games, which included Words With Friends and Chess With Friends.

The suit was resolved in October, with the court dismissing the action with prejudice and each party bearing their own attorney fees and costs. However, Bang With Friends has also just announced that it will be changing its name to Down.

ADVERTISEMENT


"No longer will people be asking to bang, but to get down, which to some might simply be hanging out," reported the Las Vegas Guardian Express. "If people meet over this app and become nothing more than friends there is nothing wrong with that. The point of the app is to bring people together and have a good time. How they decide to do that is up to them."

The settlement between the two parties in the lawsuit was confidential, but the court will retain jurisdiction between the parties for the purpose of enforcing or interpreting the settlement, which we are assuming precludes Bang Your Friends Inc. from going anywhere near the words "with friends."

Illinois ‘Penis Church’—Visible From Space?

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

All in this week's edition of Architectural Visual News

Illinois 'Penis Church'—Visible From Space?

DIXON, IL—If you listen to the clergy at the new Christian Science Church at 324 West First Street, they'll tell you that the reason they built their new digs in the shape of a penis—unintentionally, of course—was to protect the large old oak tree at the corner of the property, and so they could have plenty of windows for "natural light."

Still... "It's a little bit of a stretch" to say the new building, which is actually on the corner of West Second Street and Highland Avenue, looks like a sexual organ, claimed licensed architect John McLane, who did a little work on the recently-completed project, but left before the final design was approved. But he also said that even an architect wouldn't necessarily have seen the shape just from looking at the plans.

ADVERTISEMENT


The new building replaces an older church that had to be torn down because the land it was built on had been contaminated from more than a century, and Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) ponied up nearly $750,000 for the demolition and reconstruction, which is due to be completed in December.

"We didn’t design it to be seen as what they’re seeing," said church official Scott Shepherd. "And we didn’t design it to be seen from above."

Of his congregation's recent notoriety on the internet, Shepherd will only say, "The Internet has great capability for good and great capability for gossip and destruction," though he has no kind words for negative commenters:  "I feel sorry for them. Jesus didn’t tell us to turn the other cheek to take more abuse. He told us to turn the cheek so we won’t behave like these people."

However, whoever handles the church's Facebook page has a sense of humor: That person posted a message, "Giant fig leaf coming soon," with a photo of the leaf covering the "naughty bits" of the building.

But like it or not, lots of people are having fun with the juxtaposition of a conservative church now being represented, at least on Google Maps, by a decidedly non-conservative penis—and it might just turn out to be the first human genital shape visible from space.

Catholic Mutual Fund Shuns Porn-related Companies, Others

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

But it's no surprise, because the fund was founded "at the behest" of rightwing activists who practice an extreme form of conservative Catholicism.

Catholic Mutual Fund Shuns Porn-related Companies, Others

AVE MARIA, Fla.—All you really need to know about the Ave Maria Mutual Fund is that, as CNBC noted today, it "began at the behest of the Catholic Advisory Board, a group that... is chaired by Tom Monaghan, the founder of Domino's Pizza, who has been linked closely with Catholic causes."

Actually, to say Monaghan has been "closely linked" to Catholic causes is like saying Dick Cheney was "closely linked" to Halliburton. Monaghan is the patron saint of an extreme form of Catholicism that has never shied away from espousing anti-gay rhetoric and supporting anti-gay causes, along with an extreme view of reproductive rights that includes a blanket prohibition on contraception. That pornography is also considered by Monaghan to be one of life's most poignant sins is to be expected of a mutual fund that carries the same name as the "ultra-orthodox community and university" founded by Monaghan in South Florida about six years ago.

ADVERTISEMENT


But there is no hint by CNBC of the extremist pedigree that forms the moral foundation of the Ave Maria Mutual Fund. Instead, the financial news network writes of the fund's co-manager, George Schwartz, "His five-star Ave Maria Mutual Funds focus on ethical investing and have performed strongly, usually approximating or topping their benchmarks. The fund is as its name might imply: An effort to profit through a thesis that follows moral guidelines consistent with those of Mary, the mother of Jesus, specifically and the Catholic faith in general."

While those guidelines eschew investing in "certain companies—about 150—that violate some of the core teachings of the Catholic," as Schwartz told CNBC, they do not prevent the fund from investing in "alcohol, tobacco and firearms" companies.

There are, however, a few core no-nos. According to the article, "Four practices... will get a company banned from the Ave Maria funds: Supporting abortion; supporting embryonic stem cell research (because it 'is closely linked to abortion'); contributing to Planned Parenthood; and involvement with pornography."

Needless to say, CNBC is less concerned with the fund's ethical constancy than it is with its performance, and in that regard Ave Maria appears to be a winner. According to the network, "Ave Maria's flagship Rising Dividend fund carries Morningstar's top five-star designation and is up 26.8 percent in 2013. That puts it in front of the S&P 500, which has gained 25.3 percent on a total-return basis. The fund has $642.2 million under management as part of Ave Maria's $1.4 billion total handle."

The article also quotes Schwartz as saying of the fund's 60,000 or so investors, "Virtually all of them are pro-life. Some people invest primarily because it's Catholic or because of our pro-life orientation. But the serious investors, the fiduciaries of institutional investors, have to look deeper than that. They have to see good investment results."

Domino's Pizza, by the way, which was sold by Monaghan in 1998, is still living down the rabid anti-gay beliefs of its founder. In fact, last year Queerty posted an article letting people know they could eat there again, and including a comment by the company that said, in part, "What Mr. Monaghan stands for and does is his business, but he does not represent Domino’s Pizza. He is the founder, yes, but he’s one individual, and he’s been gone a long time. The company has never been 'anti-gay' and in fact, we are going to be a sponsor of a Gay Pride festival in St. Louis later this summer."

Protest Against Nudity Ban & Appeal Hearing For Nudity Arrests

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

They'll happen this Friday and Sunday in San Francisco

Protest Against Nudity Ban & Appeal Hearing For Nudity Arrests

Posted Nov 12th, 2013 12:07 PM

SAN FRANCISCO—The Appellate Division of the San Francisco Superior Court will hear the appeal in the case of Gypsy Taub who was arrested on the first day of the nudity ban (February 1, 2013) along with three other body freedom activists (George Davis, Trey Allen and Dany DeVero). They were found guilty earlier this year even though the arrests were made in violation of the 1st Amendment and in violation of the nudity ban itself.

According to the San Francisco Police Code Section 154 (the nudity ban), public nudity is punishable by a citation. Instead, the SFPD arrested and detained the nudist activists for an hour, which technically constitutes judicial kidnapping under the color of law. In infraction cases arrests can only be made if someone refuses to present their identification to the officer or refuses to sign the citation. On February 1, four people were arrested even though they did present their IDs and were never asked to sign a citation. Besides the above violations, the arrests were illegal on the grounds of 1st Amendment. All four activists were arrested in the middle of a political protest in front of the SF City Hall. Gypsy Taub was arrested in the middle of her speech while George Davis was arrested minutes after he announced his candidacy for District 8 Supervisor.

ADVERTISEMENT


A class action lawsuit against the City of San Francisco was filed in Federal court last year. The trial is set for July of 2014.

A protest of these arrests will occur on Friday, November 15 at 2 PM at Dept. 622 of the Civil Court, located at 400 McAllister Street in San Francisco.

San Francisco body freedom activists will also have a body freedom parade and a protest against the infamous nudity ban. The protest will be documented by a television crew from Germany for one of the biggest reports about nudist for the Saturday prime time program on German TV.

The protest will take place on Sunday, November 17, at 12 noon in the Jane Warner Plaza in San Francisco. Jane Warner Plaza is located at the intersection of Market & Castro Streets.

In case of rain, the protest will be held at the Center for Sex and Culture at 1349 Mission St, San Francisco, CA 94103.

It is unclear whether arrests will be made during the protest. According to the San Francisco Police Code Section 154, city-permitted parades are exempt from the nudity ban. However, permits were either denied or not issued—our calls and emails were ignored—by the SFPD every time we applied for them in the past. A permit application was submitted for the November 17 body freedom parade as well. So far there has been no response.

For further information, email Gypsy Taub or call 510-495-9661. See Gypsy Taub here.

Digital Playground star is the first and only adult performer to reach 1M

Jesse Jane Reaches 1 Million Likes On Facebook

Posted Nov 12th, 2013 10:06 AM

BURBANK, CA—Digital Playground contract star Jesse Jane has surpassed one million likes on Facebook. This is a first for an adult performer, and the milestone marks Jane’s ongoing commitment to bond with fans worldwide.

Star of Digital Playground’s adult blockbuster Pirates and its sequel Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge, Jane’s popularity made her an instant sensation on the social networking site ever since she joined in August 2010. Her cameo on HBO’s Entourage and appearance on the CNBC documentary Porn: The Business of Pleasure, in which her all-American charm shined through, also served to boost her appeal.

ADVERTISEMENT


 “I am so grateful to all my fans for their ongoing support and love,” said Jesse Jane. “Facebook provides a wonderful way for me to share my life experiences with them, and whether its feedback on a project or an appearance or even just a simple shout out, I value that connection. This rocks—they rock!”

 “Reaching a million likes on Facebook is a testament to her commitment to her fans,” added Digital Playground’s Online Product Manager, Brian Tassels. “Despite being one of the most popular adult stars on the planet, Jesse has always remained grounded and appreciative of the support her fans have given her over the years. We couldn’t be more proud.”

Jesse Jane is coming off two major Digital Playground features this year: the spirited sex-comedy Bridesmaids and the erotic actioner Code of Honor. Last year, she made CNBC’s list of “The Dirty Dozen 2012: Porn’s Most Popular Stars.”

Ashley Madison Responds to “Frivolous” Lawsuit Claims

Posted Nov 12th, 2013 09:37 AM

TORONTO, CanadaAshley Madison parent Avid Life Media has responded to a request for comment with a statement that emphatically refutes allegations made by a former employee in a lawsuit filed against the company. The statement is republished here in its entirety. 

Ms. Silva’s allegations are without merit, and we consider this to be a frivolous claim brought by an opportunistic Plaintiff. Ms. Silva did indeed work with us for 90 days +1, after being placed via co-defendant The Career Foundation (www.careerfoundation.com), and then let us know that she could not continue, due to discomfort in her wrist, the day after her probationary period was complete.

Our head of HR at the time and her manager did arrange to have her evaluated given the timing of her injury and an independent insurance auditor failed to find her credible and as such refused her claim. Further, two separate and independent Canadian medical professionals met with and diagnosed Ms. Silva with a strain and prescribed nothing more than rest for her injury – which Ashley Madison offered to accommodate. Not until Ms. Silva travelled back to Brazil, did her medical diagnosis change.

Several good faith attempts to accommodate Ms. Silva's alleged restrictions were rejected by her; Avid was then sued by Ms. Silva, with her extortionary demands escalating over time from $120,000 (USD) to $20 million (USD).  Rather than seeking compensation in line with her salary, she chose to sue the company for profits that have little to no connection to her work for Avid Life Media; threatening all along that if her demands were not met she would speak to the press about her lawsuit.

Throughout this lawsuit, Ms. Silva has continued to lead an active life and has shown no side effects from her so called injury, as evidenced by her photo postings, depicting multiple vacations around the world, on social media sites. In fact, in several postings Ms. Silva can be seen clearly enjoying herself on a jet ski – an unlikely activity for someone who has allegedly suffered serious injury.

Avid Life Media will not, ever, give in to extortion.  Our service is 100% authentic, as described in our terms and conditions, and we resent any implication otherwise and are certain we will be both vindicated and victorious in court.  We stand behind our product so much so that we offer a 100% guarantee if service does not meet every expectation.

Ashley Madison Sued by Ex-Employee Over Fake Profiles

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

In other Ashley Madison news, Singapore has blocked the infidelity site.

Ashley Madison Sued by Ex-Employee Over Fake Profiles

CYBERSPACE—At first we could not believe that AshleyMadison.com was rife with fake profiles, but then we realized that if anyone was going to cheat on the cheaters, it would be the site that promotes infidelity. Still, it took a lawsuit by a disgruntled ex-employee to pull back the curtain on this cruel charade. Actually, we'll just call her "the ex" from now on.

The ex is suing over alleged damage to her wrists brought about by all that typing of fake profiles. According to thestar.com, "Doriana Silva is seeking $20 million from Ashley Madison for what she calls the company’s 'unjust enrichment' at her expense, plus another $1 million in punitive and general damages.

ADVERTISEMENT


"In her statement of claim," the article adds, "Silva — a Brazilian immigrant living in Toronto — says she was hired to help launch a Portuguese-language version of the site and promised a starting salary of $34,000 plus benefits."

What came next led to the lawsuit. Silva alleges in her complaint that soon after starting the job, she was told to create one thousand "fake female profiles" to seed the Brazilian Ashley Madison site.

She also says she was only allowed three weeks in which to create the profiles, and that the intensity of the work led to injuries caused by “an enormous amount of keyboarding," which eventually caused "severe pain in her wrists and forearms."

She further alleges that her requests for a wrist rest were ignored by her employers, and that the resulting pain soon made it impossible for Silva to do her job. In fact, the complaint alleges she has been unable to work since 2011, and "remains seriously disabled in many if not all aspects of her life."

Interestingly, the article also states that the complaint was filed last year, but was delayed while Ashley Madison "petitioned the court to strike references to 'ethics' and 'unethical practices' from the statement of claim." Specifically, Silva claimed she was never told there was anything “unlawful or improper” about creating fake profiles, and alleges that she was in fact led to believe “that doing so was some sort of a normal business practice in the industry." She further states that she would not have accepted the job if she had known about the “ethical and legal issues arising in relation to online fraud.”

The petition to strike the terms was denied by the trial judge and upheld this month on appeal, according to the article, which adds that Ashley Madison has yet to file a "statement of defense" in the case.

Another unusual aspect to this case is that Silva is seeking "a share of the money earned through the profiles she created" rather than compensation based on her injuries and suffering, which Silva says were exacerbated by the company's alleged refusal to "grant her workers’ compensation or insurance despite an earlier agreement she would be covered."

In other Ashley Madison international news, Singapore has decided to block the site "amid a public outcry ahead of the company’s planned launch of a portal for the city-state." The presiding authority said the site exhibits "flagrant disregard of our family values and public morality,” no doubt referring to all those fake profiles!

ACLU Files Motion for Larry Flynt in Franklin Execution Case

ACLU Files Motion for Larry Flynt in Franklin Execution Case

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.As AVN has previously reported, Hustler publisher Larry Flynt is on record expressing his wish that serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin, the man who shot and paralyzed him in 1978, not be executed on November 20, but be allowed to spend the rest of his life in prison. Flynt is now taking concrete action by intervening in a lawsuit filed against the Missouri Department of Corrections over its planned use of the barbiturate pentobarbital, which the state now intends to use in lethal injections, including for the first time with Franklin. This weekend, Tony Rothert, legal director for ACLU of Missouri, filed a motion to intervene in the case on behalf of Flynt

ADVERTISEMENT


According to the Missouri Times,"Franklin’s execution and the scheduled executions of several other convicted killers are marred in a debate in Missouri and other states about how to go about carrying out death sentence convictions in light of recent changes to the supply and availability of commonly-used execution drugs.

"After unsuccessfully attempting to use the common anesthetic propofol to execute criminals," the article continued, "Missouri’s Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon directed the department to find a new solution. But when the Department announced its change and a new drug, it also announced new protocol for those involved in executions. A broader definition of what constitutes an 'execution team,' has barred the public from knowing the identity of the company supplying Missouri’s drug, or the name of the executioner and anesthesiologist that approved the new method."

Flynt's motion seeks to compel the DOC to unseal documents and testimony related to Franklin's execution, which if it is carried out as planned will mark the first time pentobarbital, which is normally used to euthanize domestic animals, is used by the state to execute a human. 

In a press release issued today by the Missouri ACLU, Flynt is quoted as saying, “I find it totally absurd that a government that forbids killing is allowed to use that same crime as punishment. But, until the death penalty is abolished, the public has a right to know the details about how the state plans to execute people on its behalf.”

More information about the case can be found here.

Bunny Ranch Brothel Owner Appeals To Justin Bieber

'Stop taking sexual risks,' Hof implores

Bunny Ranch Brothel Owner Appeals To Justin Bieber

Posted Nov 11th, 2013 03:39 PM

LYONS COUNTY, NV—Upon hearing reports that Justin Bieber was seen leaving a Brazilian brothel while on tour, Bunny Ranch legal brothel owner and star of HBO’s Cathouse Dennis Hof is making a public appeal to him to stop risking his health and instead spend time with the ladies of his seven legal brothels in Nevada. 

 “I was shocked to hear that Justin might have put his health and safety at risk in a Brazilian brothel!” Hof exclaimed. “For starters, while prostitution itself is legal in Brazil, brothels are not. He could’ve been arrested and subjected to the Brazilian justice system, which might not have been favorable to him. Secondly, condom use with Brazilian prostitutes is voluntary and unregulated, with an estimated 6 percent of them being HIV positive. Worst of all, Brazil has a rampant child sex trafficking problem, second only to that of Thailand. Being caught with an underage prostitute could’ve killed this young man’s career.”

ADVERTISEMENT


Hof is quick to note that at The Bunny Ranch, none of these things are a factor. “Licensed prostitution in Nevada is safe and regulated. Girls are licensed as prostitutes through their county’s sheriff’s department, and they must have a clean criminal record in order to be granted one.

"They are tested for sexually transmitted diseases and examined weekly by a doctor who reports to the county health department. As a result, there has never been one case of HIV throughout the entire history of legalized prostitution in Nevada. Obviously because every girl is licensed, it would be impossible for my brothels to employ anyone underage. Every one of the perils that Justin Bieber reportedly risked on foreign soil would’ve been non-factors for him in the good ol‘ USA.”

Dennis is also aware of Bieber’s need for discretion, noting that anonymity is guaranteed at The Bunny Ranch.

 “We have celebrities and politicians in and out of here on a weekly basis, and you don’t hear about any of them being spotted by paparazzi. We have private and discreet entrances for them, and we never have to wrap any of them in bed sheets.”

Hof is inviting Bieber to visit The Bunny Ranch as his guest, asking Justin to adopt the mantra “Be a ‘Belieber’ in safe sex.”

The world famous Moonlite Bunny Ranch is featured in the long-running award-winning HBO reality TV series Cathouse, and is the most successful legal brothel in the history of the country.

To interview Dennis Hof or any of the Bunny Ranch girls, or for any other media needs, email Marc Medoff or call 775-246-9901 ext. 815.

Op-Ed: Bigotry Has No Place in Commerce, Much Less in Art

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

A law that prohibits discrimination against gays does nothing to protect sex workers

Bigotry Has No Place in Commerce, Much Less in Art

JESUSLAND—As most AVN readers are undoubtedly aware, there have been several instances over the past few years where teachers, social workers and others similarly employed have been fired from their jobs when it was revealed that they once posed for nude photos or, worse, appeared in one or more sexually explicit adult movies (aka porn).

The firings had nothing to do with how good the people were at their jobs, nor even how they now conduct themselves in public and in the workplace; rather, they were fired because their bosses feared the notoriety that came (or likely would come) with the revelation of the person's prior sex work, and the imagined disruption that knowledge would cause on the job site. Walter Jenkins would have understood very well.

ADVERTISEMENT


In other words, the people were fired because their bosses were prejudiced against anyone who was revealed publicly to be, in some manner, a sexual human being.

But looking askance at those who have worked in porn is hardly the only sexual prejudice held by far too many mainstreamers; there's also the fact that many people are gay and aren't afraid to let that fact be known (aka "come out of the closet")—and a recent court case out of New Mexico shows just how insidious that prejudice can be—and to what lengths bigots will go to defend their bigotry.

It all started simply enough. Elaine Huguenin and her husband Jonathan run a photography studio in Albuquerque, Elane Photography (the missing "i" in Elane has never been explained), and one of the services they offer is that they will come out and photograph social events: everything from bar mitzvahs to award ceremonies to weddings to whatever.

Almost.

In 2006, Vanessa Willock emailed Elane Photography to ask them to photograph, not a wedding, but Vanessa's commitment ceremony to her partner, Misti Collinsworth, since New Mexico at that time did not allow gay people to marry.

The Huguenins responded to Willock that they only photographed "traditional weddings," and when Willock wrote back to ask, “Are you saying that your company does not offer your photography services to same-sex couples?” Huguenin responded, “Yes, you are correct in saying we do not photograph same-sex weddings,” and thanked Willock for her interest.

What the Huguenins didn't know was that Willock was one of those people who actually believed that in the United States, all people are equal before the law—a fact recognized by New Mexico's Human Rights Act (NMHRA), which in 2003 was amended to add "sexual orientation" to the classes of persons protected from discriminatory treatment.

Anyway, just to be sure, Collinsworth, whose name was then unknown to the Huguenins, sent her own email to Elane to ask whether they would be available to photograph "a wedding," without specifying just what type of wedding it would be. According to the New Mexico Supreme Court's opinion, Huguenin promptly sent Collinsworth a list of pricing information and an invitation to meet with her and discuss her services, and a few weeks later, e-mailed Collinsworth again to follow up.

But what Willock and Collinsworth didn't know was that the Huguenins considered themselves to be "Bible-believing Christians," and as everyone who's read that book knows, the Book of Leviticus advises, in Chapter 20:13, that "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death."

But the Huguenins didn't get nearly that dark in pleading their case in court. According to them, the couple had nothing against gays personally; it's just that, according to the New Mexico Supreme Court's opinion, they "did not want to convey through [Huguenin]’s pictures the story of an event celebrating an understanding of marriage that conflicts with [the owners'] beliefs."

"Elane Photography argues that it would have taken portrait photographs and performed other services for same-sex customers, so long as they did not request photographs that involved or endorsed same-sex weddings," the opinion, by Justice Edward L. Chavez, states. "However, Elane Photograph’s owners testified that they would also have refused to take photos of same-sex couples in other contexts, including photos of a couple holding hands or showing affection for each other."

But wait; it gets better (not in the Dan Savage sense of the phrase, though...)

"Elane Photography also argues in its brief that it would have turned away heterosexual customers if the customers asked for photographs in a context that endorsed same-sex marriage," the opinion continues. "For example, Elane Photography states that it 'would have declined the request even if the ceremony was part of a movie and the actors playing the same-sex couple were heterosexual.' Therefore, Elane Photography reasons that it did not discriminate 'because of ... sexual orientation'."

See? They're not bigots, 'cause they'd even discriminate against heterosexuals if they were doin' gay stuff!

In any case, Willock and Collinsworth found another photographer willing to record the ceremony—but not willing to be cast as second-class citizens in their own state, the pair filed suit against Elane under the Human Rights Act—and won! Not only that: The Huguenins were required to reimburse Willock and Collinsworth $6,637.94 for court costs and the couple's legal expenses.

"Elane Photography’s argument is an attempt to distinguish between an individual’s status of being homosexual and his or her conduct in openly committing to a person of the same sex," the high court unanimously ruled. "It was apparently Willock’s e-mail request to have Elane Photography photograph Willock’s commitment ceremony to another woman that signaled Willock’s sexual orientation to Elane Photography, regardless of whether that assessment was real or merely perceived... In this case, we see no basis for distinguishing between discrimination based on sexual orientation and discrimination based on someone’s conduct of publicly committing to a person of the same sex.

"We are not persuaded by Elane Photography’s argument that it does not violate the NMHRA because it will photograph a gay person (for example, in single-person portraits) so long as the photographs do not reflect the client’s sexual preferences," the opinion later continues. "The NMHRA prohibits public accommodations from making any distinction in the services they offer to customers on the basis of protected classifications. For example, if a restaurant offers a full menu to male customers, it may not refuse to serve entrees to women, even if it will serve them appetizers. The NMHRA does not permit businesses to offer a 'limited menu' of goods or services to customers on the basis of a status that fits within one of the protected categories. Therefore, Elane Photography’s willingness to offer some services to Willock does not cure its refusal to provide other services that it offered to the general public." [Citations removed here and below]

Cue the outrage!

"The idea that free people can be 'compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives' as the 'price of citizenship' is a chilling and unprecedented attack on freedom," said (right-wing) Alliance Defending Freedom's Senior Counsel Jordan Lorence, who's defending the Huguenins. "If Elane Photography does not have [its] rights of conscience protected, then basically nobody does. What you have here is the government punishing someone who says, 'I, in good conscience, cannot communicate the messages of this wedding.'"

Ken Klukowski of the religio-conservative Family Research Council termed the decision "profoundly disturbing" and hoped that the decision would draw attention to "the serious threat to religious liberty posed by overbearing government agencies when it comes to redefining marriage. Rather than live-and-let-live, this is forcing religious Americans to violate the basic teachings of their faith, or lose their jobs."

Of course, that's crap. As much as the Huguenins have argued that photographing a wedding or similar event requires them to "use [their] artistic and expressive skills to communicate what was said and what occurred at the ceremony," in fact, as the high court noted, "Elane Photography does not routinely publish for or display its wedding photographs to the public. Instead, it creates an album for each customer and posts the photographs on a password-protected website for the customers and their friends and family to view. Whatever message Elane Photography’s photographs may express, they express that message only to the clients and their loved ones, not to the public"—and definitely not plastered over the front page of the Albuquerque Tribune as a message to all gays that, "Ha-ha; we made some bigoted photographers abandon their 'deeply held beliefs.'"

And though there's a long discussion on the subject in its opinion, the New Mexico Supreme Court has a simple answer for the religious argument: "The fact that compliance with the NMHRA will require Elane Photography to produce photographs for same-sex weddings to the extent that it would provide those services to a heterosexual couple does not mean that the NMHRA compels speech in the manner of the laws challenged in Wooley [v. Maynard] and [West Virginia State Board of Education v.] Barnette... the NMHRA does not require any affirmation of belief by regulated public accommodations; instead, it requires businesses that offer services to the public at large to provide those services without regard for race, sex, sexual orientation, or other protected classifications. The fact that these services may involve speech or other expressive services does not render the NMHRA unconstitutional."

But Lorence and Klukowski represent the less-psychotic edge of the insanely-religious fringe.

"The points raised by these judges defy all common sense," claimed Bobby Eberle of GOPUSA.com. "There is no constitutional right to photography. There certainly is a constitutional right to practice one's religion. How could these judges make such an error?"

Um... Bobby? The "constitutional right" at issue is the one that bans discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, a less explicit version of which can be found in the Fourteenth Amendment: "No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

But wait; there's more!

"Anyone who still doubts that the normalization of homosexuality and the legalization of same-sex marriage will represent a seismic shift in the culture at large needs only to look to New Mexico to see that nothing less than religious liberty is now under threat—and in a big way," stated R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

Yeah! Because if Elane Photography is required not to discriminate regarding who it'll sell its services to, that might lead to a nationwide realization that one particular sect's (Christian, but it could just as easily be Jewish or Muslim) religious beliefs are not the law of the land; the U.S. Constitution is!

And since we can't have that, the Alliance Defending Freedom is appealing the New Mexico Supreme Court's decision to the U.S. Supreme Court.

But the question becomes, why would members of the adult entertainment industry give a rat's ass about this? And the answer is simple: You're not a "protected class" under any anti-discrimination laws. If some school board or other government agency, whether local, state or federal, finds out that you've acted in a XXX-rated movie, it doesn't matter that it's been several years since you did so, that you don't do it any more, that you've become a tax-paying member of the community with a husband (or wife), kids and a two-car garage, and that your conduct in the workplace has been exemplary; they can fire you on "moral grounds" without your being able to do anything about that blatant discrimination. Sure, you can sue, but the anti-discrimination laws won't protect you even though you engaged in a legal profession and broke no laws while engaging in it.

So congratulations, porn stars and, more importantly, former porn stars: You're at the bottom of the list when it comes to legal protections regarding where you work, where you live, where you go to college and any other facets of life where Those In Charge might look down on your present or former career.

But then, you knew that already, didn't you?

The New Mexico Supreme Court's decision in Elane Photography v. Willock can be found here.

Could Massachusetts Make Up-Skirt Photos & Videos Legal?

Unless it already is!

Could Massachusetts Make Up-Skirt Photos & Videos Legal?

BOSTON, MA—Back in August of 2010, Andover resident Michael Robertson was arrested for allegedly attempting to take photos up the skirts of two women—one of them an undercover cop—who were riding on Boston's Green Line subway—but rather than admit his invasion of privacy and pay the fine in Boston Municipal Court, Robertson has elected to fight for his "right" to be a photographic Peeping Tom.

Seems that Robertson has filed a Motion with Massachusetts' Supreme Judicial Court to have the state's "Peeping Tom" law—officially Chapter 272, Section 105 of the Massachusetts Crimninal Code—thrown out, arguing essentially that if women wear skirts in public places, it's their own fault if people like himself sit across from them on the subway, lower their cellphone cameras to knee level, and aim them up the women's skirts to capture images of the women's thighs and panties—or in some cases, a lot more.

"If a clothed person reveals a body part, whether it was intentional or unintentional, he or she cannot expect privacy," Robertson's attorney Michelle Menken argued to the seven justices of the Supreme Judicial Court.

Interestingly, the way the law is written, it could support Menken's argument. The operative section of the law states, "Whoever willfully photographs, videotapes or electronically surveils another person who is nude or partially nude, with the intent to secretly conduct or hide such activity, when the other person in such place and circumstance would have a reasonable expectation of privacy in not being so photographed, videotaped or electronically surveilled, and without that person’s knowledge and consent, shall be punished by imprisonment in the house of correction for not more than 2-1/2 years or by a fine of not more than $5,000, or by both such fine and imprisonment."

Robertson, through his attorney, argues that since the law only applies to a person "who is nude or partially nude," the fact that he's looking and photographing up the skirts of clothed women should exempt him from liability under Section 105.

On the other hand, prosecutor Cailin Campbell argued for a more inclusive reading of the law, telling the justices that "there is an understandable expectation that one can have on not being photographed like that in that kind of setting," and that just because the women were clothed, the fact that the photos were taken up their skirts essentially rendered them partially nude under the law.

Interestingly, the justices weren't as sure as Campbell about what people should expect in public.

"So by that standard, everyone in this courtroom could be considered partially nude?" asked Justice Ralph Gants.

Put another way, Chief Justice Roderick Ireland asked, "Is there any difference between what the naked eye can see and what a camera can see?"

Campbell essentially argued that just because Robertson could take a picture up a woman's skirt didn't mean that it was proper for him to do so, but Menken turned that around by stating, "What he saw was in plain sight. He did not place his camera directly up a women's skirt. He saw what was in front of him."

To be sure, it's a thorny question, and it's unclear when the Supreme Judicial Court will issue its ruling in what's being called the "Peeping Mike" case—but if it goes in Robertson's favor, we're guessing that a lot fewer women in Massachusetts will be wearing skirts or dresses on the subway—and that there will be a quick push for a change in the law.

Dotcom Extradition Hearing Rescheduled for April 2014

Dotcom Extradition Hearing Rescheduled for April 2014

AUCKLAND, New Zealand—An extradition hearing for Megaupload founder and current Mega operator Kim Dotcom, which has already been delayed several times and was supposed to take place November 21, has been moved to April of next year, according to 3News.

"Dotcom and his co-accused were arrested in January, 2012 but the case against him has been bogged down by legal argument after it was revealed police botched the raid's search warrant and New Zealand's spy agency the GCSB illegally spied on Dotcom, a German who had become resident in New Zealand," the station reported.

"The US is trying to extradite Dotcom, Finn Batato, Bram van der Kolk and Mathias Ortmann over allegations their Megaupload website netted more than $US175 million ($NZ210.3m) in criminal proceeds," it added.

Megaupload was shuttered by U.S. authorities at the time of Dotcom's arrest, but as AVN reported last year, the extradition process has hit serious roadblocks because of alleged improprieties by American and New Zealand authorities. In the meantime, Dotcom founded a new file-sharing service called Mega in January of this year. Yesterday, in fact, PCWorld reported that Mega is now out of beta and sporting new features.

In other Dotcom news, a New Zealand government minister was forced to resign in October after it was revealed that he accepted campaign donations from the internet mogul without listing who the donation was from, a violation of the country's Electoral Act.

"John Banks resigned on Wednesday as minister for regulatory reform and small business after the Auckland district court ordered him to stand trial over allegations of electoral fraud relating to Dotcom’s NZ$50,000 ($44,144) donation," reported The Guardian.

Lupe Fuentes Band to Play LaRue Birthday Party Tonight

Posted Nov 08th, 2013 04:27 PM

WEST HOLLYWOOD—Veteran director and beloved adult industry character Chi Chi LaRue is throwing a birthday party tonight at Ultra Suede in West Hollywood. The no-cover event, which LaRue is co-presenting with Billy Francesca and Dirty Burty of Studio One, will feature pop and dance hits from the disco era as well as the '80s and '90s, with hip-hop beats thrown in.

On top of that, former adult star Lupe Fuentes will be in the house with her band the Ex Girlfriends to add a live set of electro pop dance music.

This party extravaganza has a copious list of co-hosts: A.G. Gonzales, Mike Munich, Kiki Xtravaganza, Leonardo Cruz and the "Kiss Boyz," Anthony Garza and Johnny Rice.

Fresh off her first-live performance ever at Rob Zombie's Great American Nightmare on Oct 24, Fuentes said she is thrilled to make her Los Angeles debut at LaRue's big bash.

"I'm so excited to be performing at Chi Chi's birthday. She is such an icon, and since both of us share our love for music, glamour, partying and of course DJ'ing, this was a perfect fit," Fuentes said.

She continued, "So many artists like Madonna, Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez started their careers in 'the clubs' and this just seems like a perfect place for me to launch my live show with my super sexy party-style music."

Fuentes was featured on Telemundo this week on two separate programs; check out the shows here and here.

Admission is free, with drink specials all night long. Ultrasuede is located at 661 N. Robertson Blvd., West Hollywood.

Steve Hirsch Makes Play for Newly-Single Courtney Stodden

Steve Hirsch Makes Play for Newly-Single Courtney Stodden

LOS ANGELESVivid honcho Steve Hirsch waited approximately 30 seconds before making his play for the newly single Courtney Stodden, the 19-year-old reality star and plastic surgery queen who just announced her split from husband Doug Hutchison after three years of very public marriage.

Before the ink was dry on Stodden's next model release, the Vivid co-founder was explaining to E! News why the teen sexpot's destiny is in adult entertainment, and buttering her up for what he said could be a big payday.

ADVERTISEMENT


"Courtney Stodden was born to be a porn star," he told the entertainment news site. "There is no question that she would be a huge star as she exudes sexuality.

"I would love to sign her to a contract now that she's going to be single," he added. "Maybe she'd be interested. If not, she would be a great host for us on VividTV (our cable network) until she felt fully comfortable."

Hirsch also complimented Stodden's physical assets, saying, "She has the body and the looks to be a star," but added that more would be expected of her than just to look good. "Her sex," he said, "would have to be super-hot to complete the package."

Assuming she has what it takes, Hirsch dangled the prospect of a lucrative career before the precocious teen, telling E! News,  "A successful porn star can make several hundred thousand dollars a year. Courtney would surely make more."

But again, there's no rush, Courtney. Whenever you're ready for your close-up, your close-up will be ready and waiting for you.

Study: Porn-Viewing Execs Put Corporate Networks at Risk

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

Porn-Viewing Execs Put Corporate Networks at Risk

BUGVILLE—We're always a little suspicious of studies conducted by security companies that claim results showing significant security risks, but some we cannot ignore, especially when the world "porn" shows up in the survey report and subsequent articles. Such is the case with a recent survey of tech support employees conducted by ThreatTrack Security, the results of which are here.

ADVERTISEMENT


The main gist of the report is positive, in fact, and is reflected in its title, "Malware Analysts Have the Tools to Defend Against Cyber-Attacks, But Challenges Remain." One of the main challenges, it turns out, is the people at the top of the corporate food chain.

According to the report, "Among the issues that malware analysts face: more than half said they’ve had  to remove malware from the device of a member of senior leadership because the executive clicked on a malicious link in a phishing e-mail, while nearly 40 percent had to remove malware after a senior executive visited an infected pornographic website."

Visiting a malware-infected porn site is not the biggest ongoing threat to company networks—it actually comes in fourth behind clicking on a bad link in a phishing email, attaching an infected device to a company computer and letting a family member use a company computer—but it also may be one of the more difficult vulnerabilities to deal with, since it involves an individual's private life. 

Dipto Chakravarty, an engineering and products executive at ThreatTrack, told CNNMoney that "part of the problem is that employees are less cautious with their iPhones and Android smartphones than they are with their office computers."

The threat to networks from personal devices may even increase as more companies establish "bring your own device" policies. According to a recent survey by Cisco and British Telcom, 36 percent of companies currently have such a policy.

If there is a silver lining to the report, it is that tech support workers feel as if they have the tools they need to counter threats to their networks from malware... if only their bosses would cooperate. 

The bad news for the online porn industry, however, is that it continues to be roundly associated with the proliferation of malicious software.
