Silvera Captures Otherworldly Anal in ‘Alien Ass Party’

Silvera Captures Otherworldly Anal in 'Alien Ass Party'

VAN NUYS, Calif.—Director Joey Silvera adds a fun twist to his popular anal series The Ass Party with his newest effort centered around the concept of alien sex slaves who can be controlled by telepathy. Alien Ass Party releases from Evil Angel June 23 via VOD and DVD.

The conceit for Alien Ass Party was born out of a make-up theme Silvera has been empoying lately, the director explained. "I've been having make-up put rhinestones on girls for awhile," Silvera said. "I had 'Dr.' Sarah Shevon booked with Luna C. Kitsuen. I left the room and when I came back, Maria the make-up girl had about 13 rhinestones on the doc's right cheek. I said, 'You gotta take a couple of those off' ... and then I thought about it and said, 'No, leave 'em on. Let's make a movie about aliens!' Dr. Sarah has a direct connection to the orbs on her face."

Silvera has given Shevon the "Dr." title in his movies because of her "expertise with proctological probing." And she displays that expertise once again in Alien Ass Party with a helping of her signature prolapsing. 

The cast also includes up-and-comer Callie Calypso, Lea Lexis, Bianca Breeze, Bibi Noel and Asian newbie Meiko Askara.

See the trailer for Alien Ass Party at EvilAngelVideo.com.

Revenge Porn Hits Close to 10 Downing

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

Revenge Porn Hits Close to 10 Downing

LOS ANGELES—A high-profile case of so-called revenge porn has hit close to home for British Prime Minister David Cameron, whose nanny has reported being victimized by a former boyfriend who allegedly posted old nude photos of her to at least three websites. The situation came to light Friday after the unnamed woman alerted police, who are reportedly investigating.

"The carer for the Prime Minister’s children was shown in 'overtly sexual poses' across at least five pictures on three adult websites, according to reports that emerged over the weekend," reported the Independent. "It has raised concerns of a 'worst-case scenario' whereby the nanny, who has accompanied the family on foreign holidays and is said to be close to Mr. Cameron’s wife, Samantha, could have been blackmailed over the images."

ADVERTISEMENT


The specter of that sort of compromising situation threatens to escalate a national "conversation" on "revenge porn" to the highest level, with one charity already calling on the government to make it a priority.

“I hope this case starts a conversation,” said Laura Higgins, helpline manager at the UK Safer Internet Centre. “I was personally involved in giving evidence following David Cameron’s comments about internet security last summer, and I was able to give them specific examples of why this is an issue.”

The Independent added, "Downing Street refused to comment on the pictures, but a source close to the nanny told The Sun: 'She’s horrified these profiles have come to light and is mystified at how they got there. She insists it was nothing to do with her and must be down to one of her ex-boyfriends. It is worrying that someone would go to such lengths. She realizes that the worst scenario could have been if someone had used the stuff posted on there to try to blackmail her.’”

The idea of blackmail over a few nude photos seems improbable these days, even for the nanny to a prime minister's children, the fact that it is being mentioned as a possible scenario is an indication of the direction the "conversation" is already taking. Similarly, if the United Kingdom does move to address "revenge porn" with the same heavy hand it has used in its attempt to curb access to online porn, look for some scary measures to be proposed by the West's most censorship-embracing government.

June 9, 1986: Maine Voters Defeat First Referendum on Obscenity

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

Maine Voters Defeat First Referendum on Obscenity

LOS ANGELES—In our latest version of This Day in Porn History, June 9 marks the 28th anniversary of a historic vote for both Maine and the nation. In the first statewide referendum on obscenity in the history of the United States, Maine voters decided on this date in 1986 that a proposed law that would have levied a possible five-year prison term on anyone convicted of selling or promoting obscene materials was not for them.

The nation's papers had a field day with the story. "Call it rugged individualism, call it stubbornness, call it Yankee independence—call it any of those things—but Tuesday's big vote in Maine seems to prove that folks up there aren't about to hitch their freedoms to the anti-pornography bandwagon," reported the Philadelphia Inquirer. "As a result, the first statewide referendum on obscenity in the nation's history was taken to the woodshed and clobbered."

ADVERTISEMENT


According to staff writer Dick Polman, Maine was just being Maine. "The way the winning side sees it, your basic Maine voter, who already has spurned a mandatory-seat-belt law and a mandatory-bike-helmet law, was not about to pull the lever for a ballot proposal that would have made it a crime, with a maximum prison term of five years, to sell or promote obscene materials—especially given that the definition of obscenity seemed as elusive as a squaretail brook trout in a country stream.

The vote wasn't even close, running about 70-30 percent against adding the new crime to the books. "But the Christian Civil League of Maine, the people who piloted the push against porn, were holding their heads aloft yesterday, even though the vote, with unofficial returns in from 665 of 669 precincts, was 72 percent to 28 percent against the referendum," reported Polman.

"People didn't understand what we were trying to get rid of," Kim Leupold, a campaign consultant hired by the league, said at the time. "They didn't understand the issue was pornography, not censorship. But they apparently felt endangered."

Endangered, perhaps, or, unlike Leupold, the preponderance of voters interpreted the attempt to suppress pornography as in fact being synonymous with an attempt to censor speech.

While not that long ago in geologic terms, the referendum in 1986 took place in a very different atmosphere from that which exists today. Pre-internet as well as before the advent of today's immersive digital economy, the 1980s were a time when the question of what to do about pornography was being addressed at the highest reaches of the federal government.

As Polman explained at the time, "The [Maine] referendum fight was, in essence, a distillation of all the views aired nationally over the last few years, and most recently in the debate over an impending report by the Attorney General's Commission on Pornography that links porn with sex crimes and urges a stronger effort to stamp it out. The Maine concept was nothing new—its bid to ban materials that lack 'serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value' is on the books in more than 40 states, including Pennsylvania. But the ballot-box strategy was historic."

A look back at the core arguments being made reveals that despite our assumption today that anti-porners in the past used porn's immorality as their main cause for opposing it, issues of safety were very much in play, and used by supporters of the proposed law to make their case.

Sam Lanham, a Bangor lawyer who drafted the anti-pornography measure for the Christian Civil League, said at the time, "The issue of violence against women and child abuse is a powerful message, and most people are still concerned about it. People who voted against the referendum say they were also against pornography, but they didn't see this as a way to fight it. . . . I still could not see happening what they [foes] suggested would happen here: the banning of legitimate works."

But despite those efforts, the debate over the law became about censorship and not the  (still-unproven) link between porn and sex crimes. "We didn't want to go around 'denying' there was a [pornography-crime] link and be on the defensive," Bob Howe, campaign consultant for the Citizens Against Government Censorship, said in 1986. "We made censorship the issue. 'Did people want the state to tell them what they could see, read or hear, and let one group impose their moral values on the rest of us?' That's what we conveyed."

One television ad even showed "the burning of a pile of books such as The Color Purple and The Grapes of Wrath in the presence of a cop clad in leather. Kim Leupold, the civil league campaigner, was still smarting over that ad yesterday. She said it was very effective. She also said it was very misleading."

As a fascinating aside to this historic vote this day in 1986, the virulent anti-porn feminist activist and author Andrea Dworkin, who was still alive, said that she, too, would have voted against the Maine law if she lived in the state. Her argument was that such laws are ineffective and a waste of time and resources.

"An obscenity law might've made them [porn opponents] feel better, but it wouldn't have done anything to get rid of pornography," she argued. "Police enforcement is always unreliable."

According to Polman, "Dworkin would prefer a law allowing women to sue pornographers directly, in civil court, if they could prove that they were hurt by people using the material, but measures like that have failed thus far in several localities."

Dworkin added, "What Maine does prove is that people wanted to use the ballot to express their outrage at the saturation of pornography. They cared enough about their communities to try a new approach. And, unfortunately, it means that they feel the political process was letting them down."

Obviously, from the vantage point of today, no one in 1986, not even Andrea Dworkin, could even begin to imagine the true meaning of "the saturation of porn."

Luckily, the imperatives of the First Amendment remain mostly intact, so that the core arguments that would surround any similar such law remain precisely the same today as they were back then when Maine voters took to the ballot box to decide what could have become a long and costly constitutional battle, but which instead became an interesting footnote in history.

Neil Young’s Twitter Account Was Porn Hacked This Weekend

Neil Young's Twitter Account Was Porn Hacked This Weekend

TWITTERSPHERE—Everyone knows that porn hackers come in all shapes, sizes and pathologies, that they are able to generate all levels of outrage, and that most of them are by definition oblivious to the idea that places exist where porn simply has no place being, but Neil Young's Twitter account? Really? You had to go there?

Things are back to normal now on an account that usually runs to the quiet side of things, mostly offering tweets about upcoming appearances or political activism by the legendary rocker who maintains a loyal following of aging Boomers, progressives and young 'uns lucky enough to appreciate the roots of Young's music and the authenticity that he has always brought to his live performances through the years.

ADVERTISEMENT


But this weekend, according to Mashable, Young's Twitter account was porn hacked. "Whoever hijacked Young's verified account (@Neilyoung) tweeted various pornographic (NSFW) images, many of them retweets from the account of a prominent porn site," wrote Pete Pachel on Saturday. "The hacker also sent out several expletive-laden tweets, adding the hashtag #neilslayed to some of them, apparently to draw attention to the hack.

Indeed, the hackers apparently sought attention by tweeting about the very hack itself, with someone named SLUT FOR THE D tweeting, "Please disregard my last few tweets. This account was hacked, but it has now been resolved and taken care of."

According to Mashable, "That tweet actually appears to have been the start of the hack, although it's unclear if any previous tweets were deleted. The account's last tweet before Friday night was on May 28, which promoted one of Young's albums being featured on a BBC radio station.

"Another tweet from Young's account accused two other Twitter users of being behind the hack, but again, the claims are highly questionable. The hacker also replaced Young's photo with one from a seemingly random Tumblr."

The article also notes that a rep from Young's camp indicated that they were in touch with Twitter, and by the time the new week rolled around, all residues of the hack were gone. As it stands now, that May 28 tweet remains the last one on the account, which is now returned to its original programming. All is once again quiet in the realm.

Kheper Games Turns 20-20

Kheper Games Turns 20-20

Posted Jun 09th, 2014 10:00 AM

SEATTLE—June 2014 marks Kheper Games Inc.’s 20th anniversary in business. But that’s not the only milestone to be reached by the company, which specializes in games and novelties for adults. Coincidentally, Kheper Games is also about to sell its 20 millionth game. Kheper will be offering customers a 20th anniversary sale on the 20 products that the company credits as the strongest drivers in reaching that 20 millionth sale. Kheper is calling it the 20 – 20 – 20 sale.

ADVERTISEMENT


Kheper Games started in 1994 as Kheper Publishing with just one product: a book of drinking games.

Founder Brian L. Pellham explained, “I tried first to have my first book published, A Partier’s Guide to 51 Drinking Games, after I finished writing it a few months later. Every path I followed led to a rejection letter and I finally decided if this book was going to get published, I was going to do it myself.  I wish I had saved my rejection letters to write back after we sold our half-millionth copy.”

For the first five years after starting Kheper, Pellham continued to work his “day jobs” as a technical writer at Microsoft, AT & T Wireless, and Boeing. “All the while,” Pellham said, he was “writing more games and publishing three more games books.  Two of which I co-authored with a good friend, Allison Kent.  In 1999, I got my ‘big break’ when Spencer Gifts tested two of our games books and rolled out A Partier’s Guide to 51 Drinking Games.”

In 2000, Pellham pulled in a handful of investors, including his brother (Tony Pellham, who later became operations V.P.), and launched Kheper Games Inc. “I started launching romance games, drinking games, and other adult party games. Many were instant successes that still are best-sellers for us today.” These include What the F*ck?, a drinking games of outrageous questions; Beer!, a strategy drinking card game; Sex!, a card game of sex positions; and Weed!, a strategic game of growing pot plants. All of those have all sold well, Pellham explained. “We’ve since then launched product lines to extend each brand.”

Today, Pellham said, Kheper’s products can be found in adult boutiques internationally, as well as Spencer Gifts, Urban Outfitters, Francesca Collections and Go! Games Stores. Kheper distributes in more than 100 countries, and products are in up to 12 languages (the most prevalent being English, German, Spanish and French).

Customers can celebrate Kheper’s anniversary by enjoying discounts on the 20 products that helped build the company. Many distributor partners are sharing the discounts, including Eldorado Trading Co., East Coast News, SLS, Nalpac and Williams Trading. In Canada, contact D’n’A Distributions or Pink Cherry.

On the Set for ‘Jessica Drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Plus-Size’

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

Plus-Size'

When pundits talk about the younger generation receiving their sex education from porn, they’re usually not considering this to be a positive phenomenon. But after taking a look at the truly educational films produced by Wicked Pictures contract director/performer Jessica Drake, some of them might change their tune. Drake’s tackled a number of topics and subjects. But as it turns out, not every topic has been addressed.

To fill one of those gaps, Drake and award-winning BBW performer Kelly Shibari joined forces for Jessica Drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Plus Size, the next installment in the award-winning series.

ADVERTISEMENT


“As I was doing my research, I discovered that not only is there a lack of sex ed in that area, there is also not a lot of high-quality adult entertainment in the genre,” Drake said. “I hope that the plus-size community loves the project! My line is a hybrid of information and inspiration, and when you combine that with the amazing couples’ exercises in body confidence and communication, I really think it’s the whole package.”

Like other educational films, Jessica Drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Plus Size features positions couples can use to expand their sexual repertoire, as well as instructional segments. The cast includes BBW performers Devlyn Red, Angel DeLuca and Scarlet LaVey, as well as non-performer couple Scarlette Cyn and JC Lewis and others.

In addition to hardcore scenes, there are segments on body worship and communication.

“My goal is to present to men and women—those who are both of size, or if only one is plus-sized—to consider a variety of ways to enjoy their bodies and their sexuality in a fun, confident, positive way,” Shibari told AVN. “From communication and body confidence exercises, to suggestions on sex positions that work well for people of size, the film will offer suggestions from which couples can develop their own sex-positive relationships. We tried to fit as much as possible in this film.”

Most of the film was shot in one day, with each couple doing interviews with Drake about everything from their favorite positions, to how they feel about their body, to what they admire most about their partner.

But that’s not to say the entire day revolved around interviews and nothing else. In fact, some extremely steamy sex scenes took place later in the day. In addition to Scarlette Cyn and JC Lewis engaging in body worship without sex, there are couplings of men and women and two women with a strap-on.

“The film is definitely not an end-all and be-all,” Shibari said. “There are people of size who are extremely athletic and flexible, including plus-size women who are absolute acrobats on stripper poles! The sex positions we offer in the film in no way means they are the only positions that work for plus-size couples. My hope is the film will inspire couples, particularly in cities that are not particularly sex-positive or sex-explorative, to consider new ways in which to connect and enjoy their sex lives.”

Both Drake and Shibari noted that until now, BBW performers were seen as a “niche” or “fetish,” but Shibari suggested that the tide seems to be turning and that BBW is now more of a preference.

“What I can say is that during my tenure in the adult industry, I’ve grown to become much more confident about my size, my sexuality, and my choices. It’s funny what social media and being in the public eye will do—it puts you out there for scrutiny and assumptive judgment,” Shibari said. “I think that sexuality shouldn’t be limited to men and women of one ‘ideal’ size—it’s not ideal for everyone, nor is everyone’s preference. The fact there are porn styles of all kinds—BBW, TS, gay, straight, black, Asian, Latino and more—means that all sorts of fantasy scenarios are available. After all, porn is for fantasy—men and women who are looking for inspiration and variety. Having a wide variety of porn available means there’s something for everyone. And for those who are not ‘into’ plus-size porn? There are lots of other types of porn out there to explore, to see what turns them on!”

“To the critics of plus-size performers, I say that our world is all about diversity,” Drake added. “Everyone deserves to have absolutely mind-blowing sex, regardless of their age, shape, color, size, or gender preference. There is beauty in everyone.”

Jessica Drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Plus Size sets itself apart by not only being the first movie from a major adult studio to address the subject of plus-size sex, but also because it is the latest in a line that tries to blend education and eroticism.

“I think that there are people starting to have sex by learning about it not from parents or schools, but from online porn,” Drake said. “I don’t feel that it is the responsibility of porn to educate people via scenes and feature movies; but that being said, I think that we should have some sort of a disclaimer, some way to help the viewers understand that porn is a fantasy.

“To me, creating an educational product that is also sexy and inspiring is the middle ground,” she continued. “I’ve heard from many people how much they love learning from my line and then being inspired to practice the techniques they’ve learned. I have given seminars and workshops everywhere, and over time, I’ve seen what little or no sex ed growing up has done to people. I tend to teach people the things I wish I would have know at various times in my life.”

Shibari added that she had specific goals for this installment of the series as well.

“I truly hope this film will help men, women and couples of size become more confident in their sexuality, explore their amazing bodies, and communicate better as to their relationship and sexual desires,” she said. “My aim was to create a product for couples who may not be in size-positive or size-supportive communities, and I think this film is a great step in an overall global move toward size confidence.”

'Men Are From Mars' Author Blames Free Online Porn, Feminists

LOS ANGELES—John Gray, the author of the 1992 hit non-fiction book, Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, made some comments recently that could have the unique effect of bringing pro-porn and anti-porn feminists together in an orgy of revulsion directed toward him and his ideas.

First, in an interview with AFP, the 62-year-old writer and lecturer weighed in on feminism in general, commenting, "The reason why there's so much divorce is that feminism promotes independence in women. I'm very happy for women to find greater independence, but when you go too far in that direction, then who's at home?"

Very PC, to be sure, but he wasn't done. Averring that American feminists hold inordinate sway over our brains, he explained, "The most resistance I get to my message is in America. Wherever feminism has a strong hold, there's resistance to the idea that men and women are different."

That idea, of course, is at the core of his most famous work, which has been translated into 50 languages and has sold over 50 million copies. As the New Zealand Herald put it, according to Gray, "Men and women come from different planets, and the two sexes should stop trying to behave similarly, and embrace their own natural personalities."

No room in his world for any gender identification but the two obvious ones, obviously. Sorry, Jiz Lee.

He's still not done. On the matter of the Big Picture, Gray is unabashedly convinced that free online porn is akin to smack.

"With free internet porn, there's a massive addiction happening," he insists, adding that there are "just millions and millions of people... experiencing their sexual satisfactions through total fantasy. The effect that porn has on the brain is like taking heroin." We do wonder, however, if paying for porn mitigates the threat of addiction, and we're hoping it does.

The rise of infidelity sites like Ashley Madison and Arrangement Finders (which is really a sugar daddy site) also come in for the Gray Matter treatment. According to the good doctor, "When you have impersonal sex.... 'It's OK, here are these cheating wives, men, they want to have sex with you'... So you go have sex with someone that you don't know and someone you don't love ... impersonal sex does promote addiction to sex." In that sense, he adds, it's "along the same line of pornography."

We're all just sheeple to Gray, who appreciates the fact that people in Australia, South America and especially France hear his message of fidelity to gender rules, but he still finds it irksome that the feminists in America are having so much success keeping his ideas from the masses despite all the years that his books have been available.

Wicked Announces 'Cinderella XXX' as 3rd Fairy Tales Title

LOS ANGELES—Wicked Pictures and parody maestro Axel Braun have locked in plans to tackle Cinderella as the third project under the new Wicked Fairy Tales imprint, following AVN Editor's Choice-garnering debut Snow White XXX and the forthcoming Sleeping Beauty XXX

Wicked Girl and 2014 AVN Awards co-host Samantha Saint will take the title role in Cinderella XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, written once again by Braun and Mark Logan.   

"?Samantha was my first choice, and not because she's a Wicked Girl," Braun said. "Her facial features bear a striking resemblance to the Disney version of the character, and she has an innocence about her which is in stark contrast with the explosive strength of her sexual performances. I'm very much looking forward to working with her, and I really believe she will make an amazing Cinderella."   

For her part, Saint said couldn't be happier to be the one donning the infamous glass slipper. “This will be my first time working for him, and knowing he wanted me for the lead makes this the perfect introduction to his world," she enthused. "Axel's movies are the crème de la crème when it comes to showcasing what this industry can produce. His work is so consistent that it's no surprise he's won Director of the Year four years in a row, and I want to do everything I can to help him win a fifth time. He truly is one of the very best.”

No Sex, Please; We’re Soccer Players

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

Hope #TeamBJ is ready for some extra-big loads!

No Sex, Please; We're Soccer Players

NATAL, BRAZIL—Next week will see the beginning matches in the 2014 FIFA World Cup soccer tournament, and while everyone knows what #TeamBJ has in store for for their followers if either the USA, Brazil, England or Germany wins the World Cup, many of the poor soccer players themselves are in for a tough time, sexually speaking, as the playoffs get closer.

ADVERTISEMENT


"If a player can’t go one month or 20 days without having sexual relations, then they are not prepared to be a professional player," said Miguel Herrera, manager of the Mexican team. "Forty days of sexual abstinence isn’t going to hurt anybody."

Herrera's philosophy is shared by several other team managers, including those from Spain, Germany and Chile. On the slightly brighter side is Bosnia/Herzogovina team manager Safet Susic, who's also banned his players from having sex during the games, but he's amenable to the players finding "another solution."

"They can even masturbate if they want," Susic said. What a guy!

However, Brazilian team manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has a tougher tightrope to walk, considering that prostitution is legal in Brazil, so how can he expect his team to avoid bed-bouncing altogether? Answer: He can't.

"The players can have normal sex during the World Cup," Scolari stated, somewhat reluctantly, in April. "Usually normal sex is done in a balanced way, but there are certain forms, certain ways and others who do acrobatics. We will put limits and survey the players."

We can't wait to hear that locker room discussion!

The thing is, though, although coaches have, probably for centuries, warned their athletes to abstain from b.j.s and intercourse for some period before the "big game," turns out there's no scientific evidence to back up the idea that players don't play as well if they fuck before taking the field.

"Coaches over the past four, five or six decades have stated that their players should not engage in sex before athletic events because it will weaken their performance, without any serious research to support that or any base of scientific theory to understand why that's wrong," said Tommy Boone, an exercise physiologist at the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, MN, and author of Sex Before Athletic Competition: Myth or Fact. "There simply isn't anything in the medical literature to support abstinence."

And Boone should know: In a 1995 study, he challenged 11 men to a treadmill test. "Some had sex 12 hours before the test. Some abstained," noted a Discovery News report. "Results, published in the Journal of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness, showed no difference between the groups in how much oxygen their hearts needed or how efficiently their bodies used oxygen."

On the other hand, Brazilian officials have apparently decided to lend those managers a hand with the abstinence approach. Over the past few weeks, police have closed down hotels where prostitutes see clients and nongovernmental organizations have stepped up their outreach to "at-risk" children, many of whom could be seen on the streets of the city offering sexual services to anyone who drives by. In fact, Natal has been known as a hot spot for sexual tourism for a long time.

"Just five, 10 years ago, Natal used to receive 30 chartered flights—full of men—every weekend," said City Council member Julia Arruda, who serves on a commission to combat the sexual exploitation of children. "Things are much better now. But people are still taking advantage of our mostly young, impoverished citizens, and we know that there have also been networks of child prostitution for tourists.... That's why there have been coordinated projects between the 12 World Cup host cities."

Indeed, sex workers in and around Rio de Janeiro—most notably in the city of Niterói, just across Guanabara Bay from Rio—were rousted by police in late May as the World Cup games drew near, and the workers report having been illegally arrested, robbed and some even raped by the cops, all to "tidy up Rio’s massive sex industry before the 2014 World Cup kicks off."

Actually, the raids had started back in 2012, in anticipation of a United Nations conference in Rio. At that time, cops "raided a dozen luxury brothels popular with foreign tourists, including the one Justin Bieber famously visited last year," Julie Ruvolo of CityLab.com reported. "Both prostitutes and brothel managers were arrested in the sting, and police seized cash and condoms. Prosecutors brought charges of pimping, arms trafficking and sex trafficking against the raided brothels, but dropped them shortly after the conference concluded."

Things are so bad, the Brazilian government even took offense to a couple of t-shirts offered by athletic shoe company Adidas, one of which read, "Lookin' to Score. Brazil," while another simply said, "I ? Brazil"—with the heart made of what appears to be a bikini bottom surrounding two ass cheeks. But after Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff took to Twitter to denounce the shirts and declare that, "Brazil is happy to receive the tourists that will arrive for the World Cup, but is also ready to combat sexual tourism," Adidas took the shirts off the market.

But take heart (no pun intended), soccer stars: All you'll have to do is officially follow Sara Jay or Siri on Twitter, go out there and win a trophy, then line up with the rest of their followers for your free b.j.s!

The educational portion of Internext New Orleans—sponsored by Sex Goes Mobile—kicked off on May 29, the first full day of the gathering, with a billing seminar moderated by AVN’s Tom Hymes. Panelists Chris Rodger from Payze, Gary Jackson from CCBill, Sean Holland from OrbitalPay, Wendy Nelson from Netbilling, Mia Hyun from Mobius, and Mark Heninger from GoCoin were there to address the topic “Making the Right Transactions: Billing Made Easy.”

This year marks the 15th anniversary of Internext, originally known as ia2000. And this show marked the first time since 2000 that Internext was held in New Orleans. So a billing seminar that mixed established and new companies was a fitting way to kick things off. On one extreme was CCBill, a company that was already established back in 2000. On the other end was GoCoin, representing the newest arrivals in the alternative billing space: Bitcoin and its digital knockoffs.

The panelists touched on many of the new tech developments that have affected billing. CCBill’s Jackson mentioned “the Rokus of the world” and the need to address over-the-top and IPTV in billing services.

GoCoin’s Heninger emphasized an old-fashioned attribute: “It comes down to trust. Let’s integrate [Bitcoin] with payment processors. 60 percent of the world doesn’t have a credit card.”

Overall, the discussion soared to a highly technical level, with considerations of hacking threats, cascades and scrubbing. OrbitalPay’s Holland said, “If you’re not using cascades, you’re losing money.” Payze’s Chris Rodger opined that when payment processors use different master merchant accounts, that can create a scrubbing effect. And Jackson interjected, “Cascading becomes extremely valuable if you’re looking at your metrics.”

All the panelists touched on the importance of using metrics, especially in volatile international markets, which “vary like the weather,” said Hyun of Mobius. By paying attention to trends, payment processors can watch out for traffic in higher-risk countries to prevent chargebacks.

Other seminars also brought together speakers from diverse backgrounds to explore common ground for all businesses. For “Improving Business Practices: HR and Customer Service Made Easy,” Jo Merlone of KiwiSourcing handled the moderating duties.

Brad Estes of Flirt4Free represented a mature adult company: Flirt4Free, aka Video Secrets, which has been around since 1997. Brad Mitchell, president and owner of MojoHost—which provides hosting services for some 900 companies—also brought a veteran’s perspective, earned over 15 years in the business.

Two panelists had strong backgrounds in employment issues. Eddie Kreider, founder and president of X Industry Jobs, offers services to adult companies in Canada, Europe and U.S. and has been in the industry since 2007. Michael Fattorosi handles legal matters for adult companies and is a specialist in employment law.

Ines Petersen represented both the billing and live cams sectors, consistent with her background with both Webbilling.com—a specialist in European payments—and Amateur Community, a live cam network that recently entered the U.S. market.

“Communication” was a touchstone for this group of business people. Mitchell talked about how he built his career, first trying out phone sex and billing before getting into hosting. To get the word out on his new endeavor, Mitchell said, “I could see some opportunity and I started writing about it. … Teaching people, I found, was the best way to make a connection. If you have an expertise, sharing that with another person is a really powerful thing.”

He added, “There are lots of ways to get your stuff published,” and noted that GFY.com was a forum—“there is a silent group of people on GFY who are just looking for good information.”

Communication came up again in the subject of inter-staff communications. Mitchell talked about how using ticket systems “can be very clunky—sometimes it’s best to pick up a phone.” Petersen concurred, saying that she has recently made a point of printing out phone lists to encourage people to get their answers quickly by phone. Verbal communication, the panelists agreed, can be more clear and less open to misinterpretation. And of course there’s the danger of emails being forwarded and read by others. As Fattorosi reminded the audience: “Never put into writing something you don’t want someone else to read.”

Telephones also came up in regard to customer service. Mitchell said MojoHost operates a 24/7 phone support but also finds that filing support tickets is important to verify the identity of callers and also to keep track of problems. He also noted that some people prefer to be on instant message or on a ticket support system, especially if they’re not native speakers. But the bottom line, he said, is that “they should be able to escalate their problem and call me directly.”

Estes said Flirt4Free differentiates itself with live support, devoting staff time into responding to phone, email and instant messages because different clients prefer different modes of communication (“Crazy doesn’t like email,” he said wryly.) “It doesn’t win us every contract,” Estes added, “but for some people it matters—especially larger companies.”

Estes provided words of advice on another topic: how to set goals effectively. He recommended setting attainable goals and using “other metrics” to measure progress—“kind of like days without an accident at other companies.” He explained, “It’s very difficult to reach any big goal unless you break it into smaller goals.”

Immediately following the customer service discussion came a panel on everyone’s favorite topic: making money. Titled “The 5 Percent Solution: Increased Revenue Made Easy,” it was moderated by Justin Ross of Adam4Adam.com, a gay adult dating site. There to throw down some collective wisdom were Mitch Farber of Netbilling, Michael Klein of Hustler, Ilan Bunimovitz of Ackrell Capital and Sean Christian of Together Networks.

Among the points they touched upon were encouraging innovation in employees. Klein said, “I don’t ever want to hear, ‘That’s the way we’ve always done it.’” Anyone who hears that at a company they have acquired can fire this back at employees, Klein suggested: “If how you were doing it was so great, how could we have bought you?”

Farber cautioned, “You have to recognize what type of employee you have: careful ones, or ones who like to come up with ideas. Some people like to follow directions; some like to come up with ideas.”

Christian was an advocate for making salaries performance based. “I don’t care if my salespeople make more than I do,” he said. Christian also touted the benefits of the officeless business, but other panelists weren’t so sure. Farber believes working at home “works when you can monitor performance” but he added it may not serve wel for all employees, particularly those who have families. For Klein, he likes to have programmers and designers in house, so that work doesn’t get stalled out with time zones and delays. “For some things I like to have them right there,” Klein said.

In a good final question, moderator Ross asked, “Where are the areas you look to shake a little change out of the sofa cushions?”

Klein talked about keeping up with new methods of delivery. Regarding mobile technology, he said, “I got hit up by three [companies] already this morning.” To the rhetorical question “Do you get involved in IPTV?” he answered, “You want to put your toe in the water” on any new technology.

Farber also beat the drum on the need to be nimble. Unsuccessful companies “haven’t adapted to mobile, they haven’t tried different tours. They also need to look at how to keep the customers that they have. Offer deals to customers you have lost.”

Christian brought up spending money to make money. “The easiest way to pick up revenue is to spend money on marketing. … Marketing anything to Google is dead. Move beyond it. Social media is the new SEO.” He summed up, “You need a smarter marketing spend.”

Three more seminars took place on the second day, kicking off with a panel on “Trending Mobile: Mobile Innovation Made Easy” seminar, with Brian Elkan of Affil4You moderating. Speaking to the issues were Brad Mitchell of MojoHost, Andy Wullmer of SexGoesMobile and Stefan Paul Muehlbauer of Brokerbabe.

Modrator Hymes posed the first question: “What is mobile?” Two answers emerged that were not quite the same thing. On the one hand, as Elkan said, mobile is “every kind of personal device—tablet, phone.” On the other, said Wullmer, it’s “everything that can be billed from a mobile carrier.”

Wullmer had plenty to say about billing through a mobile carrier, which is key to doing business internationally. As he provocatively stated, “When I started I said fuck off U.S.—I want the rest of the world.” And in the rest of the world—unlike North America—credit cards are not the primary method of payment. Wullmer said, “Remember those words: Click-click-cash. Direct telephone company billing. Just use your fingerprint. You don’t need to put in your name or your credit card.”

And where there are no credit cards, it’s all about micropayments. “I want to have 10 cents from every Indian,” Wullmer said. “You know how much money I would make?”

Aside from how to handle international traffic, much discussion also focused on the vital importance of filtering: first by mobile vs. web, then by country, then by device, then by mobile carrier, and finally even by time zone.

Following mobile, the topic up for discussion was the live cam sector in a seminar titled "Live and Let Live: Making Interactive Easy." Moderated by Tom Hymes, it featured panelists Jay Davis of DatingGold, Bob Raley of M Group, Jeff Wilson of Flirt4Free, Ines Petersen of AmateurCommunity.com and Sean Christian of Together Networks (doing his second panel during the show, Christian got a laugh when he introduced himself by saying “I work for AVN. I’m Tom’s person assistant”).

A seasoned speaker, Christian eschewed the microphone—and the room could easily hear his comments. Stating that cams are the “best-growing vertical in the industry,” he estimated the market is close to $1.5 billion a year, maybe closer to $2 billion, and the largest growth is going to be in mobile. “Cams used to kill it in the cold months,” Christian said, as well as at night. But with mobile, that’s now changing. “People are watching it on their phones—at work, on their phones, jerking off,” Christian said, and he warned that a cam company is “doing something wrong if 50 percent of their revenue is not coming from mobile.”

Hymes asked the panelists how much revenue is driven by white labels. Christian estimated more than half, and Flirt4Free’s Wilson (who said, “I think ours are the best-looking white labels”) set the percentage at 40.

Acknowledging that Google’s constant tweaks to its search algorithms are hurting adult sites in general and white labels in particular, the panelists offered counsel on how to drive traffic. Wilson said, “Some traffic comes from tube sites, but a lot of traffic comes from affiliate networks, traffic networks. If search engines are more than 10 percent of your traffic, you’re not buying enough traffic.”

Christian pointed out that for a membership site with a live cam white label, “the very best traffic is going to be from your own members.”

Hymes asked whether it was expensive to build one’s own cam network, as opposed to using a white label, and these seasoned speakers were able to offer some good advice. Wilson noted that billing is the biggest challenge (“Mitigating chargebacks is so difficult”) while the second is reaching critical mass with both the number of models and the amount of traffic needed to sustain them.

Raley of M Group succinctly outlined the three biggest reasons for failure: “Impatience, lack of funding, and not having any idea what they’re doing.”

Models themselves, however, are a big driver of success: They spread the word on good sites and drive traffic via social networks. Surprisingly, the panelists didn’t put much stock in using porn stars to boost business. For them, it’s all about the full-time cam models who know how to build emotional ties to clients—for instance, a 45-year-old housewife from Kansas whom Christian referenced.

In terms of where growth is taking place, cams for gay men “have quadrupled in the last four years,” Raley claimed, with “lots of whales.” Wilson concurred, noting the Flirt4Free lays claim to being the top company in gay cams. He said all testing on innovations at Flirt4Free is done on both the gay and straight sides evenly.

Much more was covered in the session, which ran over a few minutes—and once the doors were open, a crowd streamed in to listen to a discussion on “Media Buyer v. Affiliate Manager: Traffic Acquisition Made Easy,” moderated by Affil4You’s Joey Gabra.  Speaking on the panel were Geoffrey Bonnechere, former COO and CBDO of ExoClick.com, Jimmy "Wizzo" Foreman of Juicy Ads, Alex Lecomte of Star Advertising, Jeff Dillon of GameLink and Andy Wullmer of Sex Goes Mobile—the latter just as feisty on this panel as he had been during the mobile discussion.

The speakers soon agreed that the question was not media buyer versus affiliate manager, but rather working with both in tandem. Wizzo noted, “Many affiliates are now media buyers. The model has shifted toward purchasing the traffic rather that building it themselves. The affiliate model has changed” in how traffic is acquired.

Gabra pursued the question further: “If I’m getting traffic from my affiliates, why buy traffic?”

Dillon proposed, “Some people don’t want the hassle of managing affiliates.” Lecomte suggested, “Visualize where your traffic is coming from,” and pointed out that affiliates and ad networks generate different sorts of traffic.

And on the subject of traffic, AVN’s Hymes asked from the audience, “Should ad networks get into social media?”

Wizzo said there was too much censorship, and Lecomte noted the labor-intensive nature of social media as a drawback. And Wullmer stated bluntly, “It’s not real traffic; it’s fake traffic.” To which Dillon riffed, “Here’s how I look at real traffic vs. fake traffic. Real boobs vs. fake boobs—at the end of the day, they’re boobs.”

Also speaking up from the audience one attendee summed up the question neatly by applying the three-legged stool metaphor to traffic acquisition. As befits an adult conference, his seat was a barstool and the legs were social media, affiliates and ad networks.

As for what method of driving traffic is most effective in which circumstance, former ExoClick COO Bonnechere brought up the importance of testing ad buys.

Much more was discussed at this panel, including the lack of APIs to connect to adult networks and references to Hummingbird. But there was still some important business to follow this final seminar: an Affil4You Cocktail Party in the lobby followed by an Affiliate Cocktail Party on the third floor. So without too much delay, audience members headed off to pose more questions—but these would be asked one-on-one, with a drink in one hand and an ecig in the other.

Taschen to Release ‘My Buddy,’ a WWII Book Like No Other

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

Taschen to Release 'My Buddy,' a WWII Book Like No Other

LOS ANGELES—Today is the 70th anniversary of D-Day, one of the major turning points of World War II, and Taschen Books is set to honor our fighting soldiers with a book that deals with a side of that bygone era's military that's never gotten its due: Gays in the trenches.

"Well, we worked hard not to make it a gay book," said Dian Hanson, the Taschen editor responsible for the creation of My Buddy: World War II Laid Bare. "It can't help but have gay appeal, but I really researched it, so we tried to make it an historical appeal—which just happens also to have homo-erotic appeal, but hey, the girls like it too! The guys have great bodies. You know, they were young men at the peak of their perfection. They're mostly 18, 19, 20 years old. For some reason, they all have just fabulous asses; whatever was the World War II workout program was very good for the buttocks. And we have a whole section, though, which is just guys showing off, where there's nothing else going on, either singly or in groups; they're standing facing the camera, showing their dicks."

ADVERTISEMENT


Indeed, there are plenty of photos of naked and half-naked soldiers and others, most captured by gay photographer Michael Stokes who, according to Hanson, "has a fascination with men in uniform," but there are also reproductions of paintings, magazine covers, WWII-era magazine ads—who knew how heavily, according to the ads, our combat troops smoked?—and the like to make My Buddy the well-rounded historical document Hanson wants it to be.

"It's not due out until July here, but the presales on Amazon are phenomenal," Hanson noted. "It's been number one in erotic photography and number one in history, so I got my point across.

"The cover is fabulous," she gushed. "You have to realize, we used an old military photo album from World War II as a template, and it was heavily embossed the way things were back then, like the high school yearbooks were, the way they did all that fabulous embossing? So we actually found a place in China that could do this for us, so it's a real beauty. We put money into this thing."

But where did the title come from?

"There's an interesting story behind that," she replied. "My Buddy was the name of a song that was very popular in World War II that sounded suspiciously romantic, and during World War II, everyone accepted that this song was about a war buddy who had lost his buddy, but it had lines like, 'I miss your voice, the touch of your hand/Just to know that you understand/My buddy, my buddy, your buddy misses you.' And when I researched the song, I found it was actually written in 1922 by a guy about his girlfriend who had died. So it was written by a man about a woman, so it was a romantic song, but it was repurposed during the war as a song from a man to a man. So I figured this would be the perfect title for this book."

However, it was Michael Stokes' collection of over 500 photos taken during combat by people at the front lines of nearly every involved country that were the inspiration for and form the backbone of this volume—although Hanson made the editorial decision to use photos only of the American and Allied troops, and to "stay away from the Axis of Evil."

"Most of them were taken in situations where men have to get naked; they have to bathe in communal groups, but they often are bathing outside, so they found a bucket and put it up in a tree and they're underneath in a group trying to get clean, or they're on the ship being sprayed down with water, or they have to go to the bathroom, and they sit side by side on these rustic toilets, so you have them all out pooping in public or pissing in public," she described. "Then you have the VD inspections: they would all have to line up with their dicks out and the guy pulls up a chair and examines each penis. There's something especially provocative about this. We have a couple of photos front and back where there's 50 guys lined up with their pants down, just standing, waiting while what they call the 'chancre mechanic' would walk down the line and they'd each milk their cock for him. And this was always in conjunction with going to a government whorehouse, which they had during World War II; they had them in places where people would go take rest, so they had them in Hawaii, they had them in Australia, and in New Caledonia."

Also of interest will be the man supplying the book's Introduction section: ex-Marine Scotty Bowers.

"Scotty Bowers wrote a book called 'Full Service' that was about his years as a hustler in Hollywood after World War II. He was a marine, was at Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, Bougainville, but before and after, he was a hustler, and he had sex with a lot of famous people in Hollywood even though he is 'straight-straight,' as he always said, so we had him write about the military."

To be sure, Bowers pulls no punches, and his salty language is an accurate reflection of the speech patterns of that war's combat forces. For example:

"So then you’re there in a little hole you dug in the sand, pissed off at the fucking Japs who’ve killed your buddies," he wrote. "You close your eyes for a little bit, but don’t really sleep. It’s raining. You’re wet and it rains, frankly, every day and every night. Some guys huddle together, some don’t, but this is when the buddy bonding starts. You need somebody you can depend on, and they can depend on you. You can tell the type of buddy that you’d want to be with in a foxhole: Someone who is on the ball. Someone who’s not going to get upset and nervous.

"But the closeness there had absolutely nothing to do with the gay thing at all. Because if you were gay you were kicked out of the god-damned Marine Corps immediately. Even if they thought you were gay you were kicked out of the Marine Corps. Period. It wasn’t a common thing like it was in the fucking Navy."

While AVN hasn't read the book in its entirety, we've seen enough of it to know that it will be a delight to anyone who's fantasized about naked men in uniform (as paradoxical as that may sound), and also to are interested in the history of that era—a history that's overlooke (or hidden) by the vast majority of historians.

The book can be pre-ordered on Amazon.com here.

‘Revenge Porn’ Increasingly Added to Marriage Prenups

'Revenge Porn' Increasingly Added to Marriage Prenups

LOS ANGELES—Among the many potential things that can go wrong in a marriage that some people try to legally and financially protect themselves against before they get married, so-called revenge porn is reportedly climbing the list. According to ABC News, social media line items are increasingly being included in prenuptial agreements.

"In an age where we are constantly seeking instant gratification through our social media connections, more couples are seeking the so-called 'social media prenup,' a written document, or often simply a discussion, that addresses what’s acceptable to share online about each other, sometimes with serious consequences," reports Lauren Effron for Good Morning America.

According to Ann-Margaret Carrozza, a New York estate lawyer interviewed by ABC, the phenomenon is a recent but genuine development in the mindset of some newlyweds.

“It’s a huge issue because we all know this stuff, once it’s out there, you can’t shake it,” she said of the concern she is hearing from clients about potentially embarassing images and videos making their way online. “It can be humiliating. It can be painful. ... It’s really no joke, and I expect this clause to become much more important with any of the other contracts.”

ABC News added, "Carrozza said she does five so-called 'love contracts,' or lifestyle provisions in prenups or post-nuptial agreements, per week and started offering social media clauses for those negotiations about two months ago. In that time, she said, about a third of her clients have been interested in having such a clause in writing."

While the emotions surrounding being "revenge porned" by an ex are understandably visceral, "the penalty for violating the social media clause has been monetary. The amount set depends on a person’s wealth... For example, for someone living in New York City who makes below $5 million, Carrozza said, 'The clause we’re using with it is $50,000 per episode,' meaning per post or per tweet."

That could add up quickly, to say the least, but Carrozza added, "We want to be able to contractually limit the damage. The damage is psychological, in the case of humiliating posts and tweets and pictures out there, and it’s economic because my career prospects are harmed.”

And despite it being a relatively new phenomenon, especially considering how long the so-called "revenge porn" websites have been out there with no mitigating statutes in place, Carrozza says she is actually raising the issue in order to spark an otherwise ignored conversation.

“It helps a couples identify the areas where they are never going to compromise,” she told ABC. “You want to establish boundaries, what will be off limits, what will be private ... what are the acceptable areas of your private lives that you want to post online.”

Expect the trend in social media prenups and post-nuptials to continue. Per ABC, the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers reports that 80 plus percent of U.S. divorce attorneys say social networking in divorce proceedings is on the rise, and according to Randy Kessler, an Atlanta-based divorce attorney, social media is “the most frequent new issue” that comes up in divorce proceedings.

No one, it seems, can escape the nefarious potential of social media. "If there is such thing as a general run-of-the-mill divorce case, it's in every case,” said Kessler. “It is scary when you see the stuff we see.”

The question remains whether these legal avenues and threats of monetary penalty are successful in curbing the apparently unbridled passions that come with divorce. On that score, Kessler says the jury is still out.

“I don’t think they hurt," he said of social media prenups, "but what’s interesting is they are untested."

Jail for Adult Businessman Who Lied on Credit Card Applications

Jail for Adult Businessman Who Lied on Credit Card Applications

LOS ANGELES—A Cincinnati-area man has been fined $32,000 and sentenced to 21 months in prison after pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Specifically, Sean Patrick Casey of Batavia was convicted of "misrepresenting the nature of his business on applications for credit cards." The business was an adult entertainment company that ostensibly arranged private strip shows, but which Cincinnati police allege also involved illegal solicitations for sex.

ADVERTISEMENT


According to the Cincinnati Business Courier, "Casey, 42, is the operator of Naughty Bodies, which marketed itself as an adult entertainment service in Ohio and Kentucky, as well as other businesses including S&C Communications and Allied Communications."

Instead of targeting the business for solicitation, however, the U.S. Attorney's Office apparently decided that the more prosaic crime of wire fraud would suffice just as effectively, if not more so.

"Casey accepted cash and credit card payments for portions of his operation, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office," reported Lisa Benson for the Courier. "In December 2007, Casey applied for a merchant agreement which represented Naughty Bodies as providing services other than strippers. Casey did the same in June 2008 when he submitted a similar application to another institution. Based on the misrepresentations of the true nature of his business, Casey obtained merchant agreements with each of the financial institutions."

Unfortunately, not all the info on the applications was apparently copasetic. "According to the U.S. Attorney’s office," added Benson, "Casey and an employee of Naughty Bodies submitted an 11-page document to one of the institutions that misrepresented the true nature of 420 transactions. Casey claimed the transactions were for either a clown, DJ, photo shoot, etc., but in reality they were for exotic dancers. According to the U.S. Attorney, Casey fraudulently obtained more than $200,000. Casey pleaded guilty on Oct. 3, 2013 to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. After his prison sentenced is complete, Casey must serve three years of supervised release."

On the Set: Tori Black’s Directorial Debut

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

The adult superstar shoots Alina Li for Elegant Angel on her first turn in the director's seat

Tori Black's Directorial Debut

Pictured, Mimefreak, Tori Black, Alina Li and Karlo Karrera on the set of Tori Black's directorial debut for Elegant Angel; photo by Jeff Koga. Below, read Tod Hunter's report from the set. Click here for more information about the shoot from Elegant Angel's blod, and click here for the trailer.

"I could have shot anybody I wanted," says first-time director Tori Black. "She's got buzz."

ADVERTISEMENT


"She" is 19-year-old starlet Alina Li, the new Girl of the Month for Elegant Angel. Li is tall, lean, bright-eyed and still enjoying being the center of attention for this skeleton crew: director Black, cameraman, stills photographer and make-up person. Co-star Karlo Karrera isn't here yet. The shooting space has a functioning camera-ready gourmet kitchen and a living room set, and those will be used for today's scene. The lavish nightclub set with fog machines, plasma TVs, and a bar filled with real liquor bottles that stretch most of the way to the 20-foot ceiling will have to wait. Although one wall with trompe l'oeil black bricks may serve as a background for stills.

"This is perfect! I want my face to look like this every day!" exults Li, happy at the makeup job.

Black looks disapprovingly at Li's orange G-string and blue bra. "That's not sexy. It's, like, cute." Li rummages through her case: "How about these?" she asks, holding up dark-blue panties with a wide band like a jockstrap. Black professionally sizes up the colors and says, "The colors don't match. Go to black."

Black hustles Li to the kitchen set for stills. "Fluff up your hair. More fluffed up. The more the better. ... That's it. Okay, now stretch. Utilize that long torso." When Li has problems getting a pose just right, Black demonstrates: "Put all your weight on this leg, and drop this leg like this."

"I saw you do that in the Nymphomaniac movie," Li says.

"Well, shit," Black groans.

Li follows the direction, striking the pose, and Black does a triumphant happy dance.

Stills finished, they move on to the scene. Karrera turned up during the stills and has been watching Li with a smile on his face. "This is your daily routine. You have coffee, tea, whatever, and then chat with me," Black says to Li. "I'll come in and talk with you. Don't be surprised when I come in. We'll chat. The idea is to get you turned on for the scene. It'll be natural. We're having a conversation. I'll just walk away, don't say goodbye, it's like we live together. Then Karlo's going to walk in, butt-ass naked, like he would in the morning, go to the fridge. After the conversation we had, you're going to be ready to go.

"I want it to flow, you guys to play off each other. Not three minutes of this, three minutes of that. More natural. Fun sex. That's what I like."

"Yay!" smiles Li.

"If, in the moment, you decide to change where the pop shot is, do whatever you want," Black says. "I don't need you to take it anywhere particular."

"I like it in the face. I tried doing that one time and the director said no."

"That's not a problem here," Black reassures her.

Black's Q-and-A elicits Li's admission that she likes tall, big guys "that feel like they are the man" and when she hasn't had sex for a few days "and I'm hungry for cock, I just go for it."

As Karrera waits, naked, to make his entrance Black tells him, "Come in hard" and Li ups the ante by telling him "Harder than that!" as everybody cracks up.

They wrap the interview as Karrera walks to the fridge, harder as requested, and Li walks up to him and aggressively grabs his cock as he takes a swig from a bottle in the fridge. She drops to her knees and starts to suck him, with smacking and popping sounds, cradling his balls, jerking him as he grabs her head and face-fucks her. She grabs his cock, pulling him forward as he pulls off her robe and they exit past the camera to the living room set.

"A year ago I didn't even know what lube was," Li giggles during the transition. "I haven’t done a boy/girl in three days," she adds. That explains the aggression.

Karrera and Li get ready, and Li warns him, "I'm getting my period in three days." She lowers herself onto his dick, crowing "I'm a big girl." Stop for stills. "Yay! Teamwork!" Black says. "I love a girl who volunteers to do cowgirl."

She looks down at her middle, and her face registers surprise, saying, "You can see my stomach!" as Karrera's cock pokes her abdomen out from the inside. When they turn to Black for guidance for the next position, Black leaves it up to them: "You're professionals. Just fuck."

Karrera stands, drawing Li into a standing mish as the cameraman shoots straight up into the piston shot as she coos, "I'm gonna cum" and her moans reach crescendo. He lays her down on her back, maintaining the connection, and raises one of her legs high so he can penetrate deeper, holding her hair tight and maintaining eye contact. "Oooo, fuck me," she keens and then gets her second wind as he pulls her into spoon, pulling one leg up so her knee is at her chin. The camera zeroes in to her grimacing face as she thrusts back on him, and when he slips out she reaches down and puts him right back in there.

"Doggy," says Black and Li drops onto all fours so he can approach from behind, and he leans up so he can fuck straight down into her raised pussy. When he picks up speed Li starts howling, grinning when air poots out of her and then rearing up and fucking back hard onto him. They lean back into reverse cowgirl, her fingering her clit and squealing, "Yes yes oh my gawd oh shit Oh Fuck YES!" before she pulls off to suck him, looking hard into camera. Her pussy, in repose, is as closed as a clam. Oh yeah, she's 19.

"I'm gonna cum in your face" Karrera groans, and a moment later he does. The cameraman says, "Let me see it" and she licks and sucks Karrera's spurting cock as he groans.

Li murmurs, "I'm naked. I'm shy," as she sits beside Karrera for the final interview, covering her nipples with one arm as she wipes her face with her fingers.

"I like big penises, and I feel that he has, like, the perfect size," Li responds to Black's question. "In the beginning I had to loosen up a little bit, but I get really wet so it's really easy for me to have sex with a big cock."

"We got all this in four and a half hours. We got a great tease, and we got a good intro, and we got a great scene. We got all that, and we got good pictures. Why do people take so long?" Black asks.

EU Court Issues Landmark Ruling on Limits of Online Copyright

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

EU Court Issues Landmark Ruling on Limits of Online Copyright

EUROPE—In what is being called a landmark decision, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) issued a ruling yesterday that reinforces the right of Europeans to "continue browsing the Web without fear of breaking copyright law,"

As reported by PCWorld.com.au. The underlying legal action upon which the ruling was made—which involved "U.K. newspaper publishers, a public relations association and a company that aggregates and redistributes news articles"—was never intended "to target individuals who browse the Web and read periodicals online, but, as the legal strategy was formulated, that ended up being the possible consequence."

ADVERTISEMENT


To get to the CJEU, of course, the case had to first make its way through various other courts, including the United Kingdom's Supreme Court, which ruled in April 2013 that European law expressly allows for unfettered "browsing and ... the making of temporary copies in the end-user’s cache and screen."

The Court added in its ruling, "Making mere viewing, rather than downloading or printing the material an infringement could make infringers of millions of ordinary Internet users across the EU," while also noting that "it has never been an infringement of EU or English law to view or read an infringing article in physical form."

While the UE Supremes ruling was authoritative, that court still referred the matter to the CJEU, which as the European Union's top court, would definitively decide the matter.

As PCWorld put it, "The EU's top court found that the copies that are inherently made when people browse the Internet do not violate copyright law, and that people do not need permission from a copyright holder to view Web content. The EU law must be interpreted as meaning that the copies on the user's computer screen and the copies in the 'cache' of that computer's hard disk are covered by the exception for temporary acts of reproduction of the EU Copyright Directive, the court ruled."

Though seemingly a commonsense ruling, vested interests in the EU still characterize it as "a crucial judgment," which was the reaction of Jakob Kucharczyk, Brussels director of the Computer & Communications Industry Association, who added, "Any other ruling would essentially mess up the Internet for European citizens.

"Despite the ruling," he continued, "one cannot overstate how irrational this case was to begin with. It's hard to believe the question at stake was whether browsing the Internet is legal or not. This was not the first copyright case challenging the foundations of Internet use, and policymakers will have to ensure that copyright rules will not continue to threaten the growth in the Internet economy."

The June 5 CJEU ruling can be read here in its entirety.

Interview: Erik Schut of TLAGay.com

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

A straight talk with the managing director of TLAgay.com

Erik Schut of TLAGay.com

2014 has brought big changes for TLA Entertainment Group, which was acquired in January by a New York-based investment group. To find out more about what lies ahead for the company's adult retail properties, TLARaw.com and TLAGay.com, AVN talked to managing director Erik Schut, who’s long been a guiding force of all things gay at TLA. (This article originally ran in the June issue of AVN magazine.)

AVN: I tried to figure out how long TLA has been in business, but it all depends on if you start with the first retail store in 1985 or go even farther back to the founding of the theater company in the early 1960s! But however you do it, this is one venerable company. Can you give us a quick history lesson about TLA and your involvement with it?

ADVERTISEMENT


Erik Schut: Even after all this time I still sometimes get asked this question by people in the porn biz. Based in Philadelphia, TLA Entertainment Group has been in business since 1981. TLA stands for Theater of the Living Arts, which was the name a live theater troupe gave to an empty 1930s-era cinema located on South Street when they formed in the late 1960s. Its artistic director was writer/ director Andre Gregory, and featured players such as Danny DeVito, Judd Hirsch, Lois Smith, Sally Kirkland, Morgan Freeman, Anne Ramsey and Ron Leibman. The live performances eventually stopped and the theater was closed. In the early ’70s it was reopened again as a movie theater. TLA started showing oddball double features—everything from King of Hearts, The Who’s Tommy, Harold and Maude and Fellini Satyricon to Pink Flamingos, Deep Throat and Caligula. The employees bought out the original owners and formed TLA as it is today. TLA was one of the first places to run Rocky Horror Picture Show and John Waters’ Pink Flamingos at midnight. Divine celebrating its anniversary at TLA is legendary. The theater morphed into the advent of TLA’s video stores, which begat film festivals, the mail order catalog, the publishing film guide division, TLAvideo.com, TLA Releasing, and whatever else the future brings.

My background is in foreign, independent and alternative film. I worked directly with most of the indie art film studios and was managing and booking one of the largest art film theatres in the U.S. when TLA came calling. I’ve actually known the former TLA owners since I was a kid. I used to cut school and make my way to the city to see movies at TLA—everything from Fellini, Antonioni and Koyaanisqatsi to Sid & Nancy and Stop Making Sense. TLA was part of my film education. When they asked if I wanted to take over the gay adult division and become its editor, I knew next to nothing about porn at the time, but I treated it as a challenge—and a business. I dove in head first (so to speak), and the rest is history.

What about the adult entertainment business, and TLA in particular, has kept you around for this long? What aspect of this business really turns you on? How has your role within the company changed over the years?

I started when retail sites were just starting to take off. I had literally no experience with adult whatsoever—other than the ones I personally watched at home. I soon realized that most retail websites geared to purchasing porn were pathetic. They were so barren with little to no information or critical eye. I’ve always been a bit obsessive about movies—I started my career in the independent art film industry—so I just plunged headfirst (pun intended) into learning everything about the retail side of the adult business. I took the adult part of our website and patterned it after the non-porn aspects of TLA. Original reviews and writing, tons of content, stuff for fans that would make them not only want to buy but to stick around for a while.

Let’s talk a little bit about how the business had changed over the years. Obviously, we live in a completely digitized world now, but what would you say are the most profound changes, for better or worse, that the industry has undergone?

Obviously the most profound change is the advent of digital delivery coupled with piracy. At the end of the VHS era, while there were still bootleggers, they were more easily caught. Now with things being delivered via an online medium, not only have hard goods taken a hit sales-wise, you’ve got everyone from tech geeks to casual fans uploading and sharing stuff for free. And the studios are at a loss on what to do. The smart ones are continuing to reinvent themselves and make cool product people want to see; the ones that can’t or won’t are starting to fade. While I love streaming and all it has to offer for the future, the glut of free tube sites and lack of any guidance or management of it is disheartening. The other thing is the complete lack of true porn “stars” these days with longevity. Five years ago there were tons, and they were actually stars in the true sense. Now, they’re few and far between. Any time I see a new Twitter account pop up with some generic name followed by XXX and the phrase “porn star” in their bio I want to scream “LIAR!” in their amateur-ass face.

How do you maintain a successful business for so many years in the face of such change? Do you have any general advice about business longevity and maintaining a good reputation for so long, and in a business known for its bruising tactics?

Change is always going to happen, no matter what business you’re in. Publishing, fashion, food service, anything. Even supposedly “steady” ones are going to experience change. The key is to recognize it when it’s happening and adapt—not out of fear, but out of creatively wanting to grow and see what’s next and what you can do for your customers. There lies the whole key, too: Listen to your customers and treat them like kings and queens. Too many businesses act as if their customers are theirs forever no matter what they do. Wrong. Plus, the shitty way some porn retailers and studios treat not only their customers but each other is mind-blowing.

Now let’s talk about TLA’s acquisition by a private NY-based investment firm. Can you first explain how and why this deal came about? I have to assume it was a long time in the making.

The original owners of TLA had been together nearly 35 years—an incredibly long time for any business partnership to last, let alone flourish as wildly successfully as TLA did. Over the years there have been multiple companies interested in either investing in or purchasing TLA outright. While a few of those dates led into a kiss or even heavy petting, none were ever really the right fit, and the senior partners of TLA knew it. It never felt right and they didn’t want TLA falling in the wrong hands. They could’ve easily cashed out for big bucks more times than once but opted not to. With the new owners it just felt right. The original partners were starting to move on (former CEO Ray Murray is starting an independent cinema/bar and restaurant) and the film industry was rapidly changing. Remember—while TLA has always been super porn friendly it was not a porn-only entity, and none of the former partners had any experience with porn. The Hollywood and indie film scene was moving into new directions, too. Enter Derek Curl and Sterling Zinsmeyer. We had sold Derek the TLA Releasing division (our non-adult theatrical film arm) several years ago, and we worked with him countless times before. He was the producer of Another Gay Sequel and brought many other film projects to the table. So, he was a known entity to TLA and the former owners knew he was intimate with the TLA legacy and willing to help solider it forward. He’s now the CEO of TLA. Sterling brings his expertise with gay film to the table, along with helping to bring in the capital needed as well. It’s definitely exciting.

Can you also explain the roles that G. Sterling ZInsmeyer and Derek Curl will now have with the company, and also any pending role changes for you and Brian Sokel? A recent PR says that Sterling Genesis brings new possibilities to the table. What are those possibilities specifically?

Derek and Sterling have very focused plans on what they see TLA as going forward. Derek especially is intimate with all we do. The great thing is that they realize TLA’s strength in the adult field, and while they don’t know the ins and outs of it, they are leaving that part up to Brian Sokel and myself to run with and build even more. Brian has an even larger role than before, moving up from general manager to senior executive. He’ll still be involved in the straight adult side of the business, but he now oversees new business development and administers to all staff of the entire retail part of TLA. These are really playing into his strengths. If you’ve ever met him you know his leadership skills, knack for getting things done and overall enthusiasm are pretty fucking amazing. God knows he’s given me the “C’mon let’s do this” kicks in the ass I’ve needed at times.

The company has put out a release that stated TLA is tightening its grip on the gay market in the wake of the acquisition. Does the acquisition especially strengthen the gay side of the company? More to the point, do you see more opportunity on the gay side of the biz into the near or distant future?

Derek and Sterling come from the gay non-adult film business, which is itself pretty intense and business-deal driven. They both see the huge opportunities awaiting TLA. We’re already the largest retailer of gay porn in North America, and one of the largest in the world. And as far as gay cinema goes, no one is bigger. Amazon may sell more—not in every case, though!—but we have the depth of knowledge and passion they lack. Our mail-order business continues to thrive. Between the straight and gay divisions we mail nearly 2 million catalogs throughout the year. I’m still amazed so much business comes from mail order! And our online sales continue to grow, too. It’s just gotten tougher, in that you really have to focus and work much harder than before. But it’s worth it. There are some huge projects on the horizon—some I can’t talk about just yet—but the ones I can include acquiring more titles for our M.O.D. (manufacture on demand) TLA Ready Disc program, and we’re definitely getting into production of original content—in some cases in conjunction with some of the coolest gay porn producers out there. It’s all about the new, the fun and the “Holy shit, that was hot as hell!”

TLA also has deep roots in the novelty side of the biz, and of course also puts on the TLA Gay Awards, which I believe is in its fourth year. Can the novelty side of the biz expect to see any changes in the wake of the acquisition?

The awards are something designed to be fun, and are voted on solely by fans. It’s a way of letting them have their voice in a world with increasingly too much separation between fan and porn producer. We may be doing something new and different with them later on this year—perhaps a live event with models and fans in person. Not sure just yet. Sex toys continue to grow with us. We do original reviews on them as well—yes, we have a staff that uses and abuses the toys!—so customers are getting info they can really use from us, and not just a sales pitch.

What about TLA Releasing, the Philadelphia International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, the Philadelphia Film Society and all of that cool East Coast stuff that TLA has founded? Are they still as important to the identity of the company as they have been for so many years?

Those are all things we’re definitely proud of, but we realized even before the new owners took over that things needed to change. All of those endeavors, while very cool, influential and important to what TLA became in the eyes of many, are huge projects unto themselves. Previously all monies TLA Entertainment Group earned went into one “kitty,” so to speak. And while that obviously worked well for years, the vast and very different changes in all aspect of film going and film watching necessitated big changes. TLA Releasing is now its own entity, and has nothing to do with TLA the retail sales side of the company. It will be run as a stand-alone division, and has a revamped focus. The film festivals were made non-profit a few years back as they became too costly to produce, and are no longer actual TLA productions. TLA sponsored QFEST (the gay film festival) with tech and design support, but even though it became the third largest film festival of its type in North America, we need to focus on the retail side. It will live on in some way, I’m sure. But not through us right now. Running all of these divisions and productions was a satisfying challenge, but it’s time to focus on our core strength.

What other new or pending TLA projects can you talk about? I get a sense from the PRs issued since the acquisition that there is genuine excitement at the company about its future. Am I reading that correctly, and if so, does that mean that TLA is equally excited about the future of adult entertainment in general? Be honest! ;-)

As I mentioned previously, we see lots of life left in this business—in fact, our recent positive evaluation by outside financiers is what led to the TLA buyout in the first place. We’re all really excited about what the future holds for us. Lots of things are planned, and the staff seems genuinely psyched for the first time in a long time. It’s a really, really good feeling.

Google Announces Impending Anti-Porn Advertising Policies

Google Announces Impending Anti-Porn Advertising Policies

GOOGLELAND—Google Adwords has been contacting advertisers who trigger a sex alarm to let them know that a policy change announced in March is about to be implemented that prohibits ads that promote a bevy of sexual activities and services. Once the policy kicks in for real later this month, “Google will disapprove all ads and sites that are identified as being in violation of our revised policy.”

The email reads:

Dear AdWords Advertiser,

We're writing to remind you about a change to Google's advertising policies we announced in our Policy Change Log that may affect your AdWords account: https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/4271759

Beginning in the coming weeks, we'll no longer accept ads that promote graphic depictions of sexual acts including, but not limited to, hardcore pornography; graphic sexual acts including sex acts such as masturbation; genital, anal, and oral sexual activity.

When we make this change, Google will disapprove all ads and sites that are identified as being in violation of our revised policy. Our system identified your account as potentially affected by this policy change. We ask that you make any necessary changes to your ads and sites to comply so that your campaigns can continue to run.

Sincerely,
The Google AdWords Team

ADVERTISEMENT


In March, Google announced the coming changes to its advertising policy, as follows:

The AdWords policies on adult sexual services, family status, and underage or non-consensual sex acts will be updated in late June 2014 to reflect a new policy on sexually explicit content. Under this policy, sexually explicit content will be prohibited, and guidelines will be clarified regarding promotion of other adult content. The change will affect all countries. We made this decision as an effort to continually improve users' experiences with AdWords. After the new policy goes into effect, the adult sexual services, family status, and underage or non-consensual sex acts policy pages will reflect this change.

Additional details about Google’s Adult Sexual Services policies can be found here, though the page will be updated to reflect the new policies once they are in effect.

HOLLYWOODLAND—Anybody remember the beginning of the movie Blue Thunder? There's Roy Scheider and his partner patrolling the skies in their police helicopter—except that whenever there's a break in the action, they scoot over to a particular section of the Hollywood Hills where they can hover near one of those hilltop mansions and watch a svelte blonde doing her exercises—in the nude. To our knowledge, that's an image that has never been incorporated into a XXX-rated movie.

Well, cheer up, 'cause all that may change in the near future. Seems the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has decided to get behind the request of seven "aerial production companies" to push the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to greenlight the use of unmanned aircraft systems (UASs, or as we better know them, "drones") for filming movies and TV shows in the United States.

"Unmanned aircraft systems offer the motion picture and television industry an innovative and safer option for filming. This new tool for storytellers will allow for creative and exciting aerial shots, and is the latest in a myriad of new technologies being used by our industry to further enhance the viewer experience," said Neil Fried, the MPAA senior VP for Government and Regulatory Affairs. "We welcome the FAA’s leadership and support their guidance to safely authorize the use of UASs for the motion picture and television industry."

And the movie industry isn't the only sector pushing for legalizing the use of drones. Everyone's heard about the supposed plan by Amazon.com to use drones to deliver merchandise purchased online from the company, but in fact, farmers, power companies and the owners of oil and gas pipelines are champing at the bit to use drones to inspect crops, power lines and pipelines for leaks, damage, fire, etc.

And rest assured, with a powerhouse like the MPAA behind the request, the FAA is taking it seriously.

"We have been contacted by four different industries, including the film industry, that have expressed interest in possibly applying for an exemption that would let them conduct tightly controlled, low-risk operations," acknowledged FAA spokesperson Les Dorr, noting that those wishing to use the drones will need "a certified aircraft, licensed pilot and FAA approval."

The FAA expects to have a proposed set of rules for small drones—under 55 pounds—ready before the end of the year, with Dorr admitting that "We think we have the authority to possibly expand the commercial use of small unmanned aircrafts in very limited, controlled, low-risk circumstances, like movie sets."

Movie sets, indeed! So, adult content producers, start thinking about all the "voyeur" type situations whose filming a hardcore scene could begin with an aerial shot of two (or more) people getting it on in someone's fenced-in backyard, or on someone's rooftop.

The sky's (literally) the limit!

Airerose Entertainment’s Debut Release ‘Raw Talent’ Ships Today

Posted Jun 05th, 2014 02:35 PM

VAN NUYS, Calif.—Airerose Entertainment’s debut title release, Raw Talent, ships today. All-natural beginners Keisha Grey, Audrina Grace, Sophia Steele, Valentina and Isabella DeSantos steam up the screen as they prove their mettle in the adult industry. 

AVN's Iris Blocks gave the title four stars in the June issue of AVN magazine, stating, “Except for cover girl Keisha Grey, whose career is as hot as a habanero, these Florida newbies are raw indeed, but that’s the charm. Nine-day veteran Isabella DeSantos is a standout; her scene with director Ralph Long offers genuine warmth and sensuality.”

Directed by Long, an industry veteran, Raw Talent features five nubile newcomers, each with less than six months of industry experience at time of production, but still a wealth of carnal knowledge. Cover girl Keisha Grey is a 19-year-old dream in a bright yellow bikini who fucks Chris Strokes poolside. Audrina Grace is a half Filipina, half Irish babe with natural 32DDD breasts that are thoroughly enjoyed by Mirko. Sophia Steele gets busy with Long with her adorable tan-lined physique. Valentina’s ripped little hard body takes it from Justin Tyme in the backyard. Isabella DeSantos, “one week and two days” in the industry, is a class act in lacy black lingerie, before she takes it all off.

Adam H. of Airerose said, “Raw Talent is the perfect debut release for Airerose Entertainment. Featuring beautiful women, the skilled eye of a thoughtful director, and highly erotic content, Raw Talent is only the first demonstration of our mission to bring ‘your sexiest dreams to the small screen.’ Raw Talent is shipping now, so make sure you order your copies today!”

For preorder and wholesale information, please contact Adam H. at (800) 999-2483, ext. 1228 or Adam@Airerose.com.

TLA Raw, PopPorn Merge Under PopPorn Brand

Posted Jun 05th, 2014 01:34 PM

PHILADELPHIA—TLA Entertainment announced today a re-branding of its straight adult division merging the TLA RAW retail website and direct mail catalog with the adult entertainment blog Popporn.com. The new entity will operate under the PopPorn brand name.

The new PopPorn adult entertainment site can be seen here.

The merger of these two sites comes on the heels of TLA Entertainment's acquisition in January by Sterling Genesis, an international investment group, and the promotion of Brian Sokel to Executive Director of all TLA Entertainment retail divisions.

"TLA has had an unbelievable revitalization over the last three months," said Sokel. "The acquisition led to reinvigoration and fresh investment in our business allowing us to rethink our brand in the straight adult marketplace. It's only logical to merge our shopping site with our blog into one perfect adult entertainment destination under the name that most closely matches who we are: PopPorn—the perfect blend of pop entertainment, nudity, porn, and more."

The new PopPorn promises a continued commitment to providing the very best in home entertainment for adults at low prices offering privacy for their valuable customers. Orders will continue to be shipped in discreet packaging with no mention of the word “porn.” The TLA RAW direct mail catalog will also be rebranded starting with issue 459.

TLAgay.com, TLA Entertainment's gay retail division, will be unaffected by this change.

As one might expect, PopPorn on-camera personality Spock Buckton offered his own take on this merger. A video and his own press release can be seen and read here.
