Adult Industry Remembers Awarded Director Candida Royalle

Adult Industry Remembers Awarded Director Candida Royalle

CHATSWORTH, Calif.—That director Candida Royalle was a ground-breaker in adult film is beyond question. With just 17 movies in her directorial portfolio, roughly 60 as a hardcore actress and non-sex appearances in several others, her legend has grown over the years, culminating in her having been awarded a doctorate in human sexuality last year, based on not only her movies but her political activism as well—and the industry has been quick to voice its reverence for this amazing woman.

"In 1984, at a time where the first feminist porn movement was at its peak and when 'feminist porn' was also the ultimate oxymoron, she founded her own adult film company, Femme Productions," director Petra Joy wrote of Royalle in The Telegraph (UK). "The old boys club that ran the porn industry at the time was bemused and did not expect what was to come: Candida produced and directed 17 award-winning films, including her debut Femme, the Eyes of Desire series and Stud Hunters. She was way ahead of her time and proved to be right—women were voyeurs too and the moment was ripe and ready to produce porn from a female perspective.

"So what made her porn different from mainstream porn, created by men and for men? Put simply—Candida prioritized women's pleasure and orgasms," Joy continued. "And she didn't end every scene with the male ejaculation—the so called 'money shot'. She featured a variety of sensual and sexual play rather than shooting what she used to call 'predictable and soulless porn painted by numbers.' Her films showed hot men who were skilled lovers, ran credible storylines that were full of humour and spoke to a large audience who were tired of soulless wham-bam-thank you-mam porn. She was a very skilled business woman but was never motivated by financial gain. She created her films because she had a burning desire to put female sexuality on the map, inspire other women to live out their fantasies, and bring pleasure to people’s bedrooms."

Joy also recalled being with Royalle in 2009 when both women won the first Poryes Award in Berlin, and again in 2013, when Joy asked Royalle to join her on the stage when Joy won the Dusk TV Porna Award in Amsterdam.

"She was, as someone said on Facebook, the Grace Kelly of porn—a sophisticated and beautiful woman of incredible integrity, big enough to allow others to shine," Joy added.

"As a woman who directs, produces and publishes pornography, there’s not a day which goes by without me thinking about the life and work of Candida Royalle," began the article "In Memory of Candida Royalle, Pioneer of Women’s Erotica" by Angie Rowntree, later adding,  "Where most other feminists of her generation saw in pornography nothing but the potential for further exploitation, subjugation and degradation of women, Candida saw how erotica could be a freeing and empowering area of expression, allowing women to take agency over their sexuality in a way no other artistic medium could.

"What has united Candida’s work, the common thread throughout it all, is a commitment to the principle that women have the right to explore, enjoy and celebrate their sexuality, openly and proudly, without taking any kind of metaphorical back seat to men," Rowntree declared. "Candida’s work tells us—screams at us, even—that women's pleasure matters, not just men's."

Another of Royalle's admirers was Jill Nelson, author of Golden Goddesses: 25 Legendary Women of Classic Erotic Cinema, 1968-1985, who recorded Royalle's self-examination of why she went into adult entertainment in the first place.

"I had gone into therapy to understand why I did what I did," Royalle had told Nelson. "After much reading and exploring, and looking at it through a historical perspective as well as my own personal perspective, I decided there was nothing wrong with performing sexually with others for others to view, and enjoy, and learn from. I felt that the pornography that existed reflected a society that had great conflict about sexuality and that there was no woman's voice. We were not getting a whole lot out of these films other than easy jerk-off material. Of course, that got me to thinking that it would be interesting to create movies that had a woman's voice that actually had good information, and that people could actually learn something...

"I worry about all of the young women coming into the adult industry now, and not having the wherewithal to go into therapy," Royalle properly cautioned young actresses. "I'm sorry; you can't do something that's this controversial and taboo without having some conflict about it, and in some way, it stays with people for the rest of your life. Even through we know that there's nothing wrong with what we did, a lot of people are going to judge you for it. If I had the wherewithal and the inclination, I would start some kind of place for women to come and get counseling because they're going to need it. It's not as if I'd be telling them, 'You're a sick person' or 'you're a bad person.' Just talk about it and make sure you're OK with it because it's the only way to stand up to people's judgments."

On a more personal note, Nelson described some of her own interactions with her subject.

"Intelligent, articulate, insightful, sincere, gracious and thorough, I was greatly appreciative of her time. In 2012, while visiting New York City, Candida invited me and a couple of friends to join Candida, Gloria Leonard, and some old friends at the West 79th St. Marina in Manhattan for a few sun-drenched hours. It was a spectacular afternoon, one in which I will never forget.

"In compiling Golden Goddesses, interview sessions with Candida stand out as some of the most fascinating and informative, as Royalle spoke with reverence and sensitivity with respect to her childhood, teen years, feminism, her foray into adult films and eventual transition to directing with a focus on couples, eroticism and romance when she launched her own company Femme Productions in the early '80s. One of the true giants of the erotic and feminist movements, Candida's Royalle's legacy will burn eternal, through her stellar work, her gutsy actions, and the power of her own words."

Also weighing in was Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals, writing for the website Uproxx.com.

"Royalle helped shape the landscape of contemporary erotica, both as a media form and as a modern workplace," Tibbals, a noted sociologist, wrote. "She challenged porn's narrative status quo by asserting there was a space for her unique vision decades ago, setting the stage for myriad perspectives we see in adult content production today. And though the idea of women working in porn may still seem outlandish to some, the fact remains that women work in every occupation, at every level, in adult entertainment. This is due in part to the barriers Royalle broke via her own career."

And speaking of actresses, several current and highly respected adult performers also had good words for the departed legend.

"To say I'm grateful for Candida Royalle's contribution to womankind would be a gross understatement," said Wicked Pictures contract player Asa Akira. "I've never met her in person—and I'm sad I won't have the chance now—but her spirit, dedication, and bravery are things I carry with me nonetheless. I thank her for her time here."

"While Candida Royalle wasn't the first female director of pornography, she had a major part in forging the path so many pornographers are able to take today," declared former Digital Playground star Stoya. "Directors and production companies who cater to groups other than the raincoated punter, female performers who create and control their own performances, and all pornographers who wrestle for platforms from which to speak authoritatively on our own experiences in sex work without being silenced—we all owe our own work to what has been built on hers."

Ever succinct and to the point, award-winning actress/director Kayden Kross added, "She was a true revolutionary who paved the way for female directors in this industry."

Royalle's passing was also noted in several high-profile mainstream media outlets, including The Daily Mail (UK), The Toronto Sun, The New York Post, as well as outlets in France, Denmark and Romania.

One of Royalle's last interviews was given this past year to Ashley West of The Rialto Report. It can be viewed here.

Katie Morgan Returns to Adult; Signs with Nexxxt Level Talent

Posted Sep 08th, 2015 12:03 PM

LOS ANGELES—In 2001, Katie Morgan made her adult film debut as the not-so-innocent girl next door and took the adult industry by storm. In 2003, she caught the eyes of HBO executives when she appeared in their late night series Pornucopia. From there she quickly went from porn star to TV star as she began a nine-year run with HBO starring in her own late night documentary series. In 2008, director Kevin Smith chose her for a starring role in Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and Katie has continued to entertain both naked and clothed with multiple TV appearances, indie films, and an extensive feature dancing tour.

Fast forward to 2015, and this fan favorite in returning to what she loves so much: performing and acting in adult movies. Katie has signed with Nexxxt Level Talent for her representation as she makes her come back to the adult industry.

The star status that Ms. Morgan brings to her return to adult is immeasurable. With a legion of fans and immediate recognition playing an authority on sexuality, Katie Morgan is poised to reignite the interests of the fans that have followed her throughout her career.  When asked about the return of this popular star, Nexxxt Level co-founder Jonathan Morgan said, "I have known Katie since she started in 2001 and as a director was floored by her amazing acting and sexual performances. I have followed her amazing career beyond porn from the small screen with HBO to the big screen with Zack and Miri Make a Porno. It is a true honor to not only witness the return for this amazing performer, but to team up with her and represent this super star is outstanding, beyond belief."

When asked about her thoughts on returning to the world that launched her career, Ms. Morgan responded, "The adult industry was always the most fun I've had at work. I just love fucking on camera and I really missed it. To paraphrase another buxom blonde, I'm very definitely a pornstar and I enjoy it. Jonathan Morgan is an old friend, and when I heard he had started Nexxxt Level with Andre Madness, I knew there was no one better to help support my return to the industry. They have loads of experience and I'm really excited to explore all the opportunities that Nexxxt Level can bring."

For her big "cum-back," Katie wanted to give her fans something special and never before seen on camera: anal. Katie Morgan will now be adding anal sex to her repetoire along with boy/girl, girl/girl, interracial, fetish, blowjobs and more. Katie is excited to get back on a porn set and wow both cast and crew with her hot performances that will have her fans around the world eager to get their hands on the newest Katie Morgan release.

HoloFilm Productions & AVN Unveil First Holographic Porn

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off on HoloFilm Productions & AVN Unveil First Holographic Porn

Industry-only preview and talent recruitment will take place Wednesday at AVN office

HoloFilm Productions & AVN Unveil First Holographic Porn

Posted Sep 08th, 2015 06:00 AM

LOS ANGELES—Anikka Albrite, August Ames and Manuel Ferrara were all winners at last year's AVN Awards, so it's safe to say they've produced some amazing scenes. But they've never performed in anything quite like the scene that’s getting released to the public on September 15. That scene, also starring Adriana Sephora and Karlie Montana, is the world’s first Synthologram porn scene produced for virtual reality viewing.

Adult industry performers and insiders will get to preview the scene and experience the technology one week early on September 9 from 6 to 9 p.m. at AVN’s office in the San Fernando Valley, home to L.A.'s other Hollywood.

ADVERTISEMENT


Along with the Synthologram scene, the new studio HoloFilm Productions LLC will show off the world’s first “hologram porn,” featuring Lily LaBeau and Brent Ray Fraser.

“Hologram and Synthologram porn are the holy grails of adult content. It’s what porn fans have dreamt about for years, and it’s what’s going to get the money back into the business,” said Brian Shuster, CEO of HoloFilms. “This has to be seen to be believed! Not only is this porn better than anything that’s ever been created before, but it currently cannot be pirated.  We intend to keep it that way.”

Created and backed by some of the leading companies in the adult entertainment space, HoloFilms is launching a public awareness campaign along with these first scenes. The campaign will be aimed at porn fans worldwide, and it will educate them about the harm that illegal tube sites and piracy have done to adult businesses. The campaign will showcase new XXX holographic scenes and ask fans to crowd-fund the production of a new breed of porn supported by consumers and protected from pirates.

“We’re recruiting performers who want to be the first hologram porn stars, as well as paid ambassadors for the campaign,” Shuster said of the AVN Open House taking place on Wednesday. “Theft-proof content will let us pay performers residual royalties for the first time in this business, so this is going to be great for everyone involved.”

The campaign, titled #GivePornAHand, will open to the public September 15.

A video preview is available at HoloFilmProductions.com/AVN/ that offers more information about the preview event, the #GivePornAHand campaign, and the technology behind creating this multidimensional and interactive content.

Famed Actress/Director Candida Royalle Passes

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

Famed Actress/Director Candida Royalle Passes

MATTITUCK, N.Y.—Award-winning director and actress Candida Royalle died at dawn today at her home in Mattituck, Long Island, after a long illness. Royalle had suffered for years from recurrent bouts of ovarian cancer, often recovering enough after treatment to participate in the activities she loved. However, according to her longtime friend (and fellow Club 90 member) Annie Sprinkle, "A few weeks ago she had to go to the hospital for a few days. Her doctor, whom she loved a lot, told her she had run out of treatment options and to begin basic hospice care. She had planned to move to Manhattan this fall to be closer to more friends in what she thought would be her last few months or year. Then just about five days ago, Candice started slipping away quickly and it became evident that it was unlikely to recover."

ADVERTISEMENT


Candida Royalle, born Candice Vadala, was born on October 15, 1950, in Brooklyn, and spent most of her life and career in the New York City area, though she lived in San Francisco for a time in the 1970s. She entered the adult industry in 1975, starring in the VCX movie The Analist, and over the course of her nine years in front of the camera, acted in nearly 70 films before deciding that she belonged behind the camera—a move that solidified her place in the history of adult cinema. Royalle created Femme Productions, the first adult production studio to be owned solely by a woman and to produce films from a woman's perspective. Among her works to be hailed by critics were 1984's Femme, starring Carol Cross, Sharon Kane and Rhonda Jo Petty, and Urban Heat, where she utilized the talents of Cross, Kane, Taija Rae, Marita Ekberg and Tish Ambrose.

Some of Royalle's most memorable films, however, were Three Daughters, which received what today would be the equivalent of 4 As from AVN, and Sensual Escape, a compilation of two of Royalle's shorter films and starring Annie Sprinkle, Siobhan Hunter, Nina Hartley, Veronica Hart and Richard Pacheco. The film received what was then a perfect rating: AAAA.

In all, Royalle directed 19 movies, first solely under her Femme Productions studio, and then, after a production/distribution deal was struck with Adam & Eve Pictures in the late '90s, under the Femme Productions/Adam & Eve label.

But movies were hardly Royalle's only contribution. In 1999, she partnered with Dutch industrial designer Jandirk Groet to create the ground-breaking line of Natural Contours vibrators—a design that had never before been seen in an adult novelty, and one which is widely imitated today.

Moreover, according to Sprinkle, "Royalle gained international acclaim as a pioneer in female sexual empowerment and expression, and she became a sought-after speaker, lecturing extensively at such venues as the Smithsonian Institute, the World Congress on Sexology, and several universities and professional conferences. She’s been a guest on countless TV talk shows and written up everywhere from The New York Times to The Times of London. In October, 2004, Royalle authored, How to Tell a Naked Man What to Do (Simon & Schuster/Fireside). Royalle was a member of the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT); in 2014 she received a Doctorate in Human Sexuality for her life’s work from the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality. She was a founding member of Feminists for Free Expression (FFE), [and] a long time animal rights champion. In 1985, Candice co-founded the first porn star support group, Club 90, of which she was an active core member until her death, and will continue to be a member in spirit."

In 2003, Royalle was featured in the 30th anniversary issue of Playgirl magazine, wherein she discussed on the sexual revolution and creating female-friendly porn with Sprinkle, and in 2006, Royalle won one of the first Lifetime Achievement Awards from Good For Her's Feminist Porn Awards, and in 2009, also took home one of the first European Feminist Porn Awards. She also received kudos from the sex researchers who authored The Porn Report, and in 2012, she was one of the primary speakers at the first International Film Festival of Female Directors of Erotic Cinema, held in Mexico City.

More recently, Royalle started a Kickstarter campaign to fund an autobiographical documentary of herself, to be titled While You Were Gone: The Untold Story of Candida Royalle, which she was in the process of filming with Canadian filmmaker Sheona McDonald. Although the campaign did not generate the funds requested, the film may still be released as almost all of the footage for it had been shot before Royalle's death.

Since her passing, Royalle's Facebook page has been filled with applause for her film and other work, as well as memories shared by her many friends.

"Rest in peace to one of the women who made my career possible," wrote famed actress and sex educator jessica drake. "Candida Royalle was not only inspiring from afar, but when I had the pleasure of meeting her at Catalyst, her words were exactly what my soul needed. Grateful to have had the chance to talk to her and thank her for leading the way."

In response to an inquiry, Royalle's longtime friend and star of Sensual Escape Nina Hartley wrote, "I am greatly saddened by the passing of Candida Royalle, a true pioneer, visionary, artist, friend and mentor. She set the standard for ethical, conscious and ground-breaking adult entertainment. As beautiful inside as she was on the surface, she was a stickler for proper treatment of performers before it was trendy. She was laughed at for thinking women's perspectives on sexuality were important, but everyone stole that idea from her. She started the 'couple's porn' phenomenon, which continues to this day.

"She was a fierce, proud feminist," Hartley continued. "She navigated the male-dominated world of sex toy design and development, and led the way as an entrepreneur in a very challenging marketing environment. Five years before the Pink Ladies Social Club began, she and her friends in NYC started Club 90, a peer-support group for women in the adult entertainment industry.

"A dedicated heterosexual, she was kind enough to let me flirt and dance with her. She had style, dignity, self-worth, intelligence to burn and never gave up on love. She enjoyed the finer things in life without shame. She loved her home, her cats, her friends and the life she made for herself, on her terms. I will always regret that I never was able to visit her at her home on Long Island but it is a comfort to know that she was surrounded at the end by those who loved her and whom she loved. We should all be so lucky to have friends like she did, or to be the kind of friend that she was. R.I.P., Candida. You made a difference in the world."

Howie Gordon, the former Richard Pacheco, contributed the following poem:

"This was a life well-lived!
"She drank every drop!
"What a joy it was to watch her blossom!
"What gifts she brought for everyone!"

According to Sprinkle, "Memorials in New York, LA and San Francisco will likely be held sometime around November, so that there is time for everyone to plan."

As more of Royalle's friends and co-workers respond to AVN's inquiries, this article will be updated.

All products must have been made available commercially during the eligibility period, which runs from October 1, 2014 to September 30, 2015.

DVD/VOD Eligibility
To be considered for nomination, movies released via DVD/VOD must either fit AVN’s traditional distribution requirements of being stocked with five wholesale distributors and/or 100 retail outlets (on DVD), or be made available for VOD download and/or streaming as follows:

• Must be available through a minimum of two (2) major for-pay VOD providers, defined as ones carrying movies from at least 100 active labels/studios.

• Must have clearly marked post dates falling within the eligibility period across all qualifying VOD platforms carrying it.

• Companies wishing to submit VOD-only titles to AVN for consideration in the 2016 AVN Awards must provide links showing that said titles meet the above requirements.

Standalone Web Scene Eligibility
Scenes from membership websites may be submitted for consideration in the following four categories:

• Best Anal Sex Scene

• Best Boy/Girl Sex Scene

• Best Girl/Girl Sex Scene

• Best Oral Sex Scene

To be considered for nomination in the one of these four categories, scenes must be released on a site that has members who are paying a monthly fee to access the site’s content. As with producers of content that is distributed on DVD and VOD, membership sites must also maintain 2257 records. If a scene in one of the above four eligible categories is released as both a standalone web scene and as an entity of a movie released either on DVD or VOD, the scene will by default be considered an entity of the movie. For consideration in all other categories, a movie must be released in its entirety as of September 30, 2015. Any scene individually considered for a 2016 AVN Award will be void from consideration in all future years if included as an entity of any movie released after September 30, 2015.

To submit pre-noms, candidates must register for a user account at the AdultCentro-powered pre-nom site, which they may do by going to: voting.avn.com/registration/submitter. If approved for access, they will receive a notification email and may log in to begin entering their pre-noms. The site will remain open until midnight September 30.

AVN strongly suggests companies and individuals begin submitting their pre-noms now and continue to do so through September 30, as there will be no extension of the deadline. Once approved for access to the pre-nom site, users may visit it as many times as necessary until the deadline.

AVN asks producers and manufacturers to be judicious in their pre-noms, submitting only those titles and items they strongly believe have a chance at being nominated rather than submitting all product released during the eligibility period.

Production companies must supply AVN with all pertinent information in their pre-nom entries, including the full stage names of all the performers in the sex scenes and the names of all the behind-the-camera professionals in the technical categories such as editing, cinematography, makeup and others.

By September 30, AVN asks that producers send two (2) DVD copies of each movie or series it would like considered, as well as sample materials used in marketing campaigns if seeking consideration in those categories. Novelty companies should also provide two (2) samples of each product they would like considered. All items should be mailed or hand-delivered to this address:

AVN Media Network

Attn: Nominations

9400 Penfield Ave.

Chatsworth, CA 91311

AVN has streamlined the categories for the 2016 AVN Awards with the aim of making it easier for studios, directors and performers to find the correct ways in which to nominate their work. Find the full list here.

Transgender Erotica Awards Changes 2016 Dates

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off on Transgender Erotica Awards Changes 2016 Dates

Transgender Erotica Awards Changes 2016 Dates

LOS ANGELES, CA One of the exciting challenges of scheduling events in L.A. is the fact that so many people are scheduling events in L.A. and only so many weekends in a month. Such proved to be the case for the 2016 Transgender Erotica Awards.

The dates for the TEAs have been changed to March 6-7, 2016 due to a scheduling conflict with the Grammy’s and the related high cost of hotel, transport, and entertainment that would be incurred by guests. The event will still be held at the Avalon for the Awards and its connecting property, the Bardot, for the After Party.

ADVERTISEMENT


"We've always run the show on the President’s Day weekend, but this year the clash with the Grammy's has caused us to look at the impact it would have on all of our out of town guests,” said Grooby owner Steven Grooby. “I appreciate it's not ideal to change a date after it's been announced, but I hope it's early enough so plans can be changed and I apologize to anyone who has been unduly inconvenienced. We're working on some extra goodies for the show, including hotel options to try and help all our attendees have an incredible weekend."

“By giving almost six months notice, we’re trusting this decision won’t affect anyone’s plans too drastically,” said Grooby Marketing Director Kristel Penn. “If it has, however, caused undue hardship to any of our guests, I encourage them to contact me immediately.”

Individuals who have already booked travel arrangements should contact Kristel@Grooby.com. Additionally, all sponsorship and media inquiries can be directed to her.

The 2016 Transgender Erotica Awards will be held on Sunday, March 6, 2016 at the Avalon in Hollywood, CA. The official After Party will be held on Monday, March 7, 2016 at the Avalon’s connecting property, the Bardot. More information can be found at TheTEAShow.com.

Erotic Service Providers Union Condemns Rentboy.com Raid

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off on Erotic Service Providers Union Condemns Rentboy.com Raid

Will demands full decriminalization of all aspects of sex work at Saturday protest rally

Erotic Service Providers Union Condemns Rentboy.com Raid

Posted Sep 03rd, 2015 06:04 PM

SAN FRANCISCO—The Erotic Service Providers Union (ESPU) stands with all erotic laborers this Labor Day holiday to condemn the U.S. government's recent raid on another adult website. In the wake of Amnesty International’s recently adopted policy calling on governments to decriminalize the selling and buying of sex services among consenting adults, the U.S. government has acted to the contrary and brought charges against seven employees of Rentboy.com, in the process closing down the site.

ADVERTISEMENT


In June of 2014, the U.S. government had seized Myredbook.com, another adult website that primarily hosted ads by women for men. This Labor Day weekend, in protest of the Homeland Security agency's seizure of Rentboy.com, a primarily male-to-male adult website, we stand with the other groups rallying in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles, united to say: Enough!

“While for many in the industry, adult services are a means to an end, for me, it is my passion and my career,” said Lance Navarro of Rentboy.com. “Through my work, I have helped many wonderful men work through their issues by simply providing a safe and judgment-free space. I've developed a great clientele over the years and therefore the Rentboy shut­down isn't hurting me as much as it is others. For those that are just starting out or that depend upon new clients, this shut-out will mean that many guys will be unable to pay their rent, feed themselves, and may even have to turn to working on the street.”

“Users of Rentboy and similar websites realize that what happens between consenting adults should be their private business,” said Mark Sade, an adult industry professional and lecturer. “We finally realized how ridiculous sodomy laws were, but we still haven’t fully grasped that senators have no reason to stand in our bedrooms and regulate how and why we have sex.”

Everyone supports laws against forced labor but the best way to deal with these problems is to prioritize decriminalizing sex work and provide access to equal protection under the law. Only then will we see the eliminating of stigma as well as the necessity for third parties as a means of protection from law enforcement intrusion. Criminalization puts the livelihoods, health and lives of sex workers in jeopardy. It’s time for our federal justice system to get its priorities straight and it’s time once and for all to decriminalize sex work.

What: Rally to Demand US Government stop criminalizing adults private lives and get your priorities straight.
When: Saturday September 5, 2015 1-2:30 p.m.
Where: Harvey Milk Plaza, Castro Muni stop at Castro and Market Streets, San Francisco

Remembering '70s Golden Age Porn Director/Editor Wes Craven

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off on Remembering '70s Golden Age Porn Director/Editor Wes Craven

Remembering '70s Golden Age Porn Director/Editor Wes Craven

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—Mainstream film director Wes Craven, whose death was reported Sunday at age 76, may have been best known for his horror franchises like Scream and Nightmare On Elm Street, but he was also one of the filmmakers who helped build the '70s "Golden Age" of adult film with two landmark films, Together and It Happened in Hollywood, as well as several that he himself directed, including Angela The Fireworks Woman.

Together was a 1971 sex-education style film, a standard tactic used to present hardcore footage without arousing the ire of the easily outraged. Together featured a young Marilyn Chambers (billed under her real name, Marilyn Briggs) who was prominently featured in the film's posters and promotional material. The Mitchell Brothers discovered her in this film, which received mainstream distribution and was screened in chain theaters across the country. Craven was assistant producer on Together, which was directed by Sean Cunningham, who later went on to create horror classic Friday the 13th.

ADVERTISEMENT


In 1972, Craven used Ingmar Bergman's The Virgin Spring for inspiration for his low-budget horror film The Last House On The Left, which he wrote, directed and edited. Sean Cunningham produced. The movie starred adult director/performer F.J. Lincoln in the pivotal role of Fred "Weasel" Podowski.

In 1974, Craven edited It Happened In Hollywood, directed by Peter Locke and produced by Jim Buckley, co-founder of Screw magazine with Al Goldstein. The film starred Cindy West, Melissa Hall, Harry Reems and Marc Stevens, and even featured a sex scene with Goldstein. Locke and Craven both appeared in non-sex roles.

Craven also co-wrote, edited and directed 1975's Angela The Fireworks Woman, under the name Abe Snake, for VCA, though he appeared in the film in a non-sex role under his own name. The movie starred some of the Golden Age's greatest performers, including Helen Madigan, Sandy Fox, Jennifer Jordan, Jamie Gillis, Eric Edwards, Marc Stevens and Alan Marlow.

By 1977, Craven had transitioned out of adult with The Hills Have Eyes, produced by Peter Locke, who went on to produce and executive-produce mainstream TV shows and movies including the 2006 remake of The Hills Have Eyes.

In an interview, Craven told Ashley West of The Rialto Report that he had "edited 'tens' of XXX films in the early to mid-'70s." West reported, "Sadly, we’ll probably never know the full extent of his work as he always hid behind pseudonyms."

Craven, Cunningham and Locke were all behind-the-camera talent who transitioned together from '70s adult film to low-budget independent film to studio production. Their contributions should not be forgotten.

MindGeek Issues Reaction to MetArt Copyright/Trademark Lawsuit

MindGeek Issues Reaction to MetArt Copyright/Trademark Lawsuit

Posted Sep 03rd, 2015 12:03 PM

CYPRUS—MindGeek, the adult conglomerate that produces adult movies and web content under several different production companies and websites, has issued its reaction to the lawsuit filed on August 27 charging that adult site PornhubPremium.com has infringed on copyrights and trademarks owned by Hydentra L.P., the parent company of MetArt.com and SexArt.com.

ADVERTISEMENT


"The lawsuit filed by Metart is frivolous," said MindGeek in a statement issued today. "MindGeek is astonished that MetArt has chosen MindGeek, its long-time content partner, as the next target of its newly adopted business model of filing baseless claims.

"MetArt has ignored in its filing that MindGeek has contractual arrangements with MetArt with respect to its content. MindGeek categorically denies MetArt’s infringement allegations.

"MindGeek believes that the true purpose of this lawsuit in fact is simply for Metart to 'make a quick buck' and obtain an unjustified payment from MindGeek.

"By ignoring the agreements between it and MindGeek, MetArt has launched a wholly unjustified attack on MindGeek," said Catherine Dunn, Vice President, Global Communications for MindGeek. "We refuse to be intimidated by this shameful action and will vigorously and aggressively enforce our rights, including by bringing counterclaims against MetArt for their actions."

The Hydentra/MetArt/SexArt complaint can be read here.

'LA Weekly' Profiles Howard Levine

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off on 'LA Weekly' Profiles Howard Levine

LOS ANGELES—Exile Distribution founder and AVN Hall of Fame member Howard Levine makes the pages of alternative Los Angeles paper LA Weekly with an extensive profile detailing his work recruiting porn stars for mainstream productions like Sons of Anarchy.

Recounting how he got connected with SOA—he himself was recruited as an extra by another member of his sober-life bike club Messengers of Recovery—the article traces how Levine conveyed that into a sideline as a porn-to-mainstream liaison and has even gone on to pick up an associate producer gig on SOA cast member David Labrava's forthcoming film Street Level.

ADVERTISEMENT


Discussing Levine's work on his show, apparently pun-partial SOA creator Kurt Sutter told LA Weekly, "Howard's a great guy but not representative of our casting process. He's an independent porntractor who works out of the back of his truck. A truck full of XXX DVDs."

The article later ponders whether the ever-narrowing borderline between the porn and mainstream worlds will ever completely vanish, quoting U.K.-based adult producer Ben Yates, who appeared in an episode last season of HBO's Game of Thrones, as saying, "The only thing that separates adult now from mainstream is the ability to shoot hard cock, pink and penetration. Mainstream goes right up to the edge, and I don't think it will be long until we see hard cock."

(Apparently Yates hasn't gotten wind of Gaspar Noé's Cannes sensation Love ... or seen Michael Winterbottom's 2004 film 9 Songs or the works of Catherine Breillat.) 

Levine doesn't see a future where the two sides of moviedom become one, but he does concede, "People love love porn. They always have. They always will."

Former Privacy Advocate AHF Wants to Break HIPAA Protections

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off on Former Privacy Advocate AHF Wants to Break HIPAA Protections

Former Privacy Advocate AHF Wants to Break HIPAA Protections

LOS ANGELES—With questions still swirling around the amount of money so-called "non-profit" AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) has spent over the past four years on political advocacy, the organization is not only planning to spend even more money in its attempt to defend mandatory condom law Measure B (which even Los Angeles County itself doesn't feel is worth defense), it's now trying to defend its proposed violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) medical privacy laws—laws which it once sued the adult industry's AIM Healthcare Foundation over for allegedly violating the medical privacy of former performer Elli Foxx. The lawsuit was part of the reason that AIM was forced out of business after more than 15 years of serving the adult community.

ADVERTISEMENT


Although AHF has no legal standing to pursue its defense of Measure B, thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Hollingsworth v. Perry, its attorneys have nonetheless issued subpoenas to the two major industry STD testing facilities and one treatment clinic, seeking disclosure of the number of STD tests performed by the clinics, and the results of those tests—and in a Wednesday press release, AHF whined about how the industry has sought to protect the medical privacy of its personnel—privacy which AHF once considered sacrosanct!

"However, now, after AHF, as an intervenor in the case, sought data from adult industry testing programs—the numbers of HIV and STDs tests done, subsequent test results, but NO personal information or identifying data—through the legal process of discovery, the adult industry has been crying wolf over privacy rather than defend its testing program, with producers and industry backers falsely alleging a potential for HIPAA violations of performers personal information," AHF's press release reads in part.

The release goes on to claim that because AHF is not seeking the identities of the performers tested by the subpoenaed clinics that "HIPAA is not an issue here." However, considering that in the past, AHF employees have tracked adult performers to their homes and places of work in an effort to enlist their help in promoting mandatory condoms/barrier protections, the organization's protests that it isn't interested in the test subjects' identities must be viewed skeptically.

Moreover, the adult industry is under no obligation to help AHF defend Measure B, even aside from the organization's lack of standing to do so. Vivid Entertainment's lawsuit against the law includes many facets, primary of which is that the Measure requires adult producers who wish to shoot hardcore content to pay to obtain a "health permit" from Los Angeles County in order to do so, in violation of their First Amendment rights to free sexual speech. The Measure also appears to invest the County with investigatory and enforcement powers which more properly belong to Cal/OSHA—and might even land an adult producer in prison.

"Steve Hirsch and the industry can’t have it both ways: you can’t sue to block the law and also be unwilling to prove your case as to why condoms should not be required," AHF president Michael Weinstein, who aims to be California's "porn czar," charged. "The ‘privacy’ fig leaf here is hiding critical STD data."

But that's not the point: If Vivid wants to use performer test data to prove its case, it may attempt to do so, and the industry at large may or may not cooperate with that attempt. However, the industry is under no obligation to help AHF defend the law, which AHF apparently thinks testing data will help it to accomplish—and in the process, of course, AHF continues to smear the efforts the industry has made to keep its performers healthy—an effort that has prevented any HIV transmission on an adult set in California for more than 10 years.

‘Roxy Raye Gagged ’N Gaped’ … And Fisted In Director’s Cut

‘Roxy Raye Gagged ’N Gaped’ ... And Fisted In Director’s Cut

Posted Sep 03rd, 2015 08:59 AM

LOS ANGELES—Luscious Roxy Raye flaunts outrageous sexuality in a graphic offering by director Jonni Darkko. Evil Angel has announced a September 6 online premiere of Roxy Raye Gagged ’N Gaped, with DVD and VOD versions coming September 16. Fans of all formats will see the elastic, all-natural title star’s plump pussy, deep throat and pliable anus manhandled in four scenes. But the most extreme action shows up only in the uncensored online version at EvilAngel.com and JonniDarkkoXXX.com.

ADVERTISEMENT


“Roxy has to be the anal queen of the business,” exclaimed Darkko. “No limits, no hesitations, just pleasure and excitement. It was really fun to watch all the fun she had in the making of this movie.” Fans wanting to appreciate all the fun can actually go beyond the “huge insertions, double penetration, double anal and cum swallowing” in the DVD and VOD, explained Darkko, because “the Web release is the ‘director’s cut’ that features a lot of pussy and anal fisting.”

The entire movie bears Darkko’s signature glamour, and he took an intimate role in creating the wild, online director’s cut. “Watching Roxy take a fist is amazing, but doing the fisting is another thing,” he revealed. “I had my whole fist in her ass. Wow!”

All versions of Roxy Raye Gagged ’N Gaped include a rectal prolapse session; a threesome glorifying Raye’s anal bisexuality; a three-on-one gang bang; and her virgin blow bang.

Fellating an interracial crew of eight well-hung studs, Raye gets slathered in spit. “That first-time blow bang was pretty amazing,” said Darkko. “Roxy has no gag reflex, so it was nuts to watch the cocks disappear.”

Raye uses enormous toys to make her holes gape, and French minx Tiffany Doll and Raye anally ream themselves with a gigantic black dildo. Mark Ashley ravages them with ass-to-mouth flavor, and Raye takes on three big boners in an orgy of double penetration and double-anal antics.

Noted Evil Angel Domestic Sales Manager Justin Rich, “It’s no surprise that Roxy works mostly for Evil Angel directors. She doesn’t shoot too much, but what she does is insane, as the Gagged ’N Gaped DVD proves. It’s hard to believe that she goes even further in the director’s cut—too bad we can’t show that on DVD and VOD, but at least fans can go online to see Jonni’s really radical stuff.”

Fans can go to EvilAngelVideo.com to preview Roxy Raye Gagged ’N Gaped.

Michelle Flynn’s Lightsouthern Studios Gathers ‘Momentum’

Michelle Flynn’s Lightsouthern Studios Gathers ‘Momentum’

Posted Sep 03rd, 2015 06:30 AM

This article originally ran in the September 2015 issue of AVN magazine. Click here to see the online edition.

Lightsouthern Studios, founded by Australian director Michelle Flynn in 2011, offers this description of its visually stunning erotica on the company website: “sun-kissed Australiana meets adult entertainment.” It’s an apt phrase, particularly for Flynn’s magnum opus, the four-part Momentum series. Even the stills from Flynn’s movie differ dramatically from most adult movies. Shot outside on the beautiful Australian coast, the movie looks like an indie project that would be at home in a mainstream film festival. And the sex scenes deliver on Lightsouthern’s promise to offer “content free of bias and comfortable in its own skin.”

ADVERTISEMENT


If it sounds like Flynn produces erotica that deserves a spot at the feminist porn table, that’s certainly true. But she’s first and foremost a visually driven storyteller, and she gives viewers a nostalgic and dreamy reverie starring four girls and one guy who embark on sexual explorations during the 1970s in an Aussie beach town. The first volume itself is short, but there’s much more to come—and Flynn opened up to reveal how she was inspired to make the series, and what lies ahead in the next installments. The second volume comes out this week, distributed in the United States by Pure Play Media.

What led you to adult filmmaking?

I started out in the industry as a performer, which was great because I got to experience first hand what it is like to work as a model, but after a while I couldn’t deny my curiosity to understand the magic behind the camera so I begged, borrowed and stole for a job with Abby Winters. Unfortunately without any experience handling cameras they had to throw me on reception, so on weekends I would go into the office and learn how to use the cameras and help the production team. When a job came up to shoot I had worked hard to prove I was the natural choice.

What was the first adult company you shot for?

I worked as a senior videographer and project manager at Abby Winters for six years and then decided to strike out on my own.  I did some shoots for WeAreHairy.com and ATK.com but I realized that after years of working in the industry I wanted to create a studio with a different ethos and set of business practices so I approached companies that had vision more like my own.

Momentum has a wonderful indie film quality. Did you set out to shoot independent films?

I think like a lot of great ideas it all started with a desire to do something different. Most of the “bread and butter” work we do is short-form content for third-party websites, but I really wanted push the boundaries and create a sexy movie that could be shown on the adult film festival circuit. Hence the Momentum series was born. I knew it had to be fun, light-hearted and bursting with nostalgia as well as showing what Lightsouthern is all about, which is what we did—then it just kind of took off.

You raised more than $6,000 on Indiegogo to fund Momentum. When you thank the donors in Momentum 1, you mention Garion—is that Garion Hall of abbywinters.com?

Yes, Garion of Abbywinters did (along with about 40 other legends) generously donate to the film. He has been very supportive of my ventures, I still often ask him for advice.

Momentum is set in the 1970s and its characters live in an Aus tra ian beach town. What drew you to that time period?

I grew up in a small town by the beach, so for me this film is a direct link to my own sexual adventures. Also I love the aesthetic of that time period in Australia.

When I think of the  1970s I think of youth culture, surfing, string bikinis and classic cars, all things that are characteristically Aussie—I also thought providing a certain amount of nostalgia was a good third element for the films.

What reaction have you received from consumers or retailers in the United States?

We had really good sales, which was pretty exciting. I didn’t know how people would react to the content with all of the Aussie-centric references, but it seems the sales speak for themselves.

Is Chloe B. the only performer from Momentum 1 who appears in the second movie?

Chloe B. is in all four films—she’s the porno glue. She’s awesome!

Momentum 1 features a scene performed by a real-life couple. Have you cast other couples in the sequels?

No, Kara and Devon are the only couple in the series and of course they are amazing together, but in general it’s important to me that the people doing the sex scenes do have chemistry and have at least met or hung out before. There is nothing worse than watching two people who are clearly not into each other have sex.

Would you describe your characters as fluid in their sexual orientation? Is that true of most of your work?

Yes, definitely. Not all, but most of the people I work with are very open and fluid on the sexual spectrum—that is not to say it’s a free for all. Boundaries, safety and comfort are paramount, so we exercise a great deal of communication to make sure everyone is completely okay before, during and after shoots.

Lightsouthern’s blog sports an entry about a girl/girl/girl scene that you say resulted in some of your best footage. What makes it stand out in your decade-long career?

I’ve said before how important chemistry is between performers. Really good chemistry is a unicorn, illusive and absolutely amazing when you have the opportunity to capture it.

There is a particular scene in Momentum Volume 3, which without giving too much away has the most amazing chemistry between the three girls. One of the girls could not touch the other two (I won’t tell you why) so the tension was high and constantly building. It’s awesome when you can create sexiness without explicitly showing it—it brings it home. I’m super proud of the scene.

Also on the blog, there’s mention of a scene for Momentum 4 featuring two men. Will the cast still be a mix of men and women?

Volume 4 is still in pre-production but they story arc will follow both a male and female lead. There will still be a good healthy mix of boy/boy and girl/girl and maybe even big mix-up of everyone at the end—you’ll just have to wait and see. I can tell you that it will be set in the Aussie desert … so lots of hot sweaty bodies.

Your website says you want models to feel “safe, creative, valued, happy, comfortable and exhilarated.” Do you ever turn down performers who you think would not fare well in the adult industry? Conversely, are there particular Lightsouthern performers who have gone on to thrive and develop a following?

I never try and dictate to a performer whether I think they will “survive” the industry or not. Our aim is to make sure they have enough information to make an informed decision for themselves; that said, I am always very honest about the downside to this work so I know that only the committed ones will stick around.

Kim Cumms is probably one of our more regular performers (also stars in volume 3) who has a huge online following, but we can’t take credit for it; she does her own media and marketing, and she’s damn good at it. Also, Madison Missina is one of Australia’s most well known performers, but again she was building a fan base long before we started working with her (Madison stars in volume 2).

On your site there’s a passage that says, “We offer a range of content services from pre-packaged videos and stills to customized media for all your content needs.” What type of custom content do you create? For whom?

We sell a range of short scenes on a few VOD sites, Gamelink, DuskTV and PinkLabelTV. We also provide exclusive content to spec for Yanks.com, DuskTV, Ersties.com and DandyDicks.com, plus a few others studios.

You’re relaunching Lightsouthern.com in October—what changes lie ahead?

So many cool things! We will finally have an online platform, our ‘Cinema’, so punters can view all the Momentum films (plus many more awesome film projects) on Lightsouthern.com. We will also be venturing deep into virtual reality; we are going to shoot Momentum 4 with virtual reality components, which is super exciting as we will be the first Aussie porno studio to do it. And we are also setting up a new branch of the business and expanding into sex toys.

The complete Momentum series will be available on DVD exclusively from Pure Play Media. Momentum 2 streets September 10. Go to Lightsouthern.com for more about Flynn and her studio. Retailers can go to PurePlayMedia.com to find out more about DVD sales.

International Lingerie Show Sees New Exhibitors, Familiar Faces

International Lingerie Show Sees New Exhibitors, Familiar Faces

LAS VEGAS—The fall edition of the twice annual International Lingerie Show ends its three-day run today at the Rio Hotel and Casino, and attendees were treated to a few new faces as well as returning exhibitors.

epi24 was one of the first-time exhibitors, and staffers were on hand to extol the virtues of the Womanizer, which is creating quite a buzz in the industry as well as mainstream press outlets.

“The Womanizer relies on its patented PleasureAir technology to help bring women to orgasms, oftentimes multiple orgasms,” said company rep Ryan P. “We get emails from women who say they haven’t orgasmed in 15 years, and the Womanizer works for them.”

The piece vaguely looks like a lay-on massager, but at the head is a silicone cup that hugs around the clitoris. The PleasureAir technology provides six levels of suction to stimulate the clit, which in most cases helps women achieve orgasm quickly and more intensely.

The Womanizer comes in a variety of color and style options (pink, purple and teal, with leopard, crocodile or zebra print accents) and some styles are covered with Swarovski elements.

“I see the Swarovski ones and think of Cyndi Lauper: ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,’ ” Ryan P. said.

The silicone cup is removable for easier cleaning, and future editions will come with silicone cups in two sizes to accommodate more women.

Vibratex returned to ILS, and attendees flocked to the booth to check out the Rechargeable Magic Wand, the first new version of the popular massagers in decades. Eddie Romero of Vibratex said the upgraded massager takes three hours to fully charge and boasts a three-hour run time on a full charge. The wand massager will operate while plugged in, but not charge until it is turned off, he noted. In addition to the charging feature, the Rechargeable Magic Wand also boasts four speeds and four pulsation ad vibration patterns.

Flashlight was also on hand to talk about the new Kiiroo With Flashlight products, the Pearl and the Onyx. Sold separately or together in a Couples Kit, the Pearl is a phallic dildo that houses teledildonic technology inside; when pressure is applied by the hand, mouth, vagina or anus, it translates via a Bluetooth connection and app to the Onyx, which has a texture tunnel made from Flashlight’s patented SuperSkin material. The Onyx user can feel the pressure and movement applied by the Pearl user. 

Company rep Amanda Purcell said Kiiroo and Flashlight have partnered with Lis Ann and Flirt4Free to present the World’s Largest Virtual Gang Bang on Oct. 21. Lisa Ann will perform a webcam show that day with the Pearl, and owners of the Onyx can join the show and link to her device to enjoy it as never before.

In the Femme Funn Booth, company reps shows off the Funn Buddies Massagers, the newest additions to the product lineup. These petite massagers feature cute shapes and extremely powerful motors that are still quiet. The Bunny Massager, Nubby Massager, Stubby Massager and Poly Massager are coated in silicone and are waterproof. They also boasts seven modes of vibration and pulsation and are rechargeable.

Teddy Love, who made a splash with their vibrating teddy bear at the AVN Novelty Expo earlier this year, announced they are expanding the product line with a Bear Paw slapper that features black feathers on one end of a slapper shaped like a bear paw on the other end of a study shaft. The company also plans to release 4.5-inch keychain versions of their Teddy Love in time for the winter holiday season.

In the My Shiney Hiney booth, company officials talked with visitors about the anal hygiene system. With soft or medium bristles attached to an ergonomically designed curved applicator brush, My Shiney Hiney allows for easy accessibility to your most hard to reach personal places. The My Shiney Hiney brush set comes with applicator brush, three medium bristle replaceable brush heads, a suction cup shower holder and the finger brush for an even more intimate cleanse.

Synergy Erotic was among the newer exhibitors, as Bob Wolf met with buyers and attendees to explained their product collection. Wolf said the manufacturer offers a number of classic toy shapes and designs—rabbits, bullets, eggs and more—all at affordable prices.

Several adult novelty distributors were on the ILS show floor as well. In the Eldorado booth, rep Jason McCoy pointed out the newest products from Je Joue: The Ooh by Je Joue collection. The toys start with a motor, then customers choose the silicone sleeve they want to attach. In some cases, the sleeves are packaged together, he said, in fun kits with the names London Love In, What Happens In Vegas and Her Name Is Rio. Additional attachments are coming in the following weeks, McCoy said. 

Svakom rep Jeff Klepper was also in the Eldorado booth and informed buyers and customers that the camera used in the Gaga has been upgraded to be clearer.

“It’s like a Go Pro for your no-no,” he quipped.

Eldorado is also carrying a larger selection of times from Svakom now, inducing he larger Lester vibe that has a self-heating sore, and the new Emma, a submersible vibe that also has a heating core and retails for $99.

“It’s like the gateway drug to Svakom,” Klepper said.

In the Nalpac booth, Janet Reynolds from NS Novelties talked up the newest additions to the manufacturer’s product collection, including the Luxe collection, deigned to be the most powerful and compact rechargeable silicone vibrators at a price point of $55 MSRP.

Mara Epstein was also in the booth, showcasing the new flawless packaging for Maia Toys, which boasts vibrators, Kegel exercisers and more in vibrant colors based on color therapy. She also noted the company will introduce new toys in the coming weeks for women, gay men and couples.

In the Xgen booth, sales rep Nick talked about the new Bodywand items that are coming in the next few weeks. For the first time, the line will offer kits: the 5-Piece Bathtime Gift Set and the Midnight Bed Spreader Set. The bath kit boats a Bodywand Aqua, as well as a bullet vibrator that can be used int he included rubber duck toy and loofah scrub. The Midnight Bodywand is in the other set, which also features a blindfoldand cuffs.

The company will also soon debut the Bodywand 360 which boasts the same power and features as many of its predecessors, but will have a head that rotates, he said.

In the Entrenue booth, the VeDO collection was drawing attention, especially the new OhhhBunny range. The OhhhBunny line of rechargeable silicone vibes include four whisper-quiet toys that are splashproof and made of body-safe silicone. Products included in the collection are a bunny-eared cock ring, finger vibe, clitoral tickler and a French-style rabbit.

Also interesting to buyers was the Exsens collection, a French brand of cosmetics, from massage oils to kissable lip glosses. The flavors of the massage oils were a big hit: Coconut, Hot Vanilla, Pina Colada, Mint Mojito, Strawberry and Margarita.

FSC Expands on Petition to Attorney General for AHF Inquiry

Posted in porn star news  by webmaster@avn.com (AVN Webmaster)
Comments Off on FSC Expands on Petition to Attorney General for AHF Inquiry

FSC Expands on Petition to Attorney General for AHF Inquiry

LOS ANGELES—At a press conference which took place at 10:30 this morning, Free Speech Coalition Board Chair Jeffrey Douglas announced that FSC had accumulated enough information by using public filings and documentation from AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) itself to call into question whether that organization had violated its non-profit charter by engaging in political activities in excess of the amount allowed under both Internal Revenue Service regulations and the regulations of the California Attorney General's Charitable Trust Section.

ADVERTISEMENT


"While AHF has waged its latest political campaign, an initiative for the 2016 ballot, there has been a recurring question: how can a non-profit entity spend so much money on political activities without losing its non-profit, tax-exempt status?" Douglas asked at the press conference. "As you know, 501(c)3 organizations the size of AHF are limited to spending $1 million a year on political activities. Anything over this threshold is subject to tax. If a 501(c)3 spends more than $6 million over a four-year period on political activities, the tax-exempt, non-profit status is subject to revocation."

Turns out that even publicly available documents reveal that over the past four years, AHF has spent at least $7 million on political activities, and in at least two of those years, the organization exceeded the $1 million political spending cap—including 2015, which still has roughly four more months to run.

"It also appears that AHF’s tax documents under-report more than $1 million dollars to state and federal authorities," Douglas added. "According to the documents we found, AHF has spent nearly $7 million on political activities, which is above the $6 million threshold that triggers the revocation of non-profit, tax-exempt status."

And apparently, AHF is not above lying to government agencies about its political expenditures.

"In 2012, AHF reported to L.A. County $2.3 million in political expenditures in support of Measure B," FSC's investigation revealed. "However, AHF’s tax filings report only $1.6 million in total campaign expenses. That year AHF also paid $100,000 to a lobbyist in Sacramento, and $200,000 to a lobbyist in D.C. bringing their annual total to $2.6 million; $1 million more than they reported to the IRS and the California Attorney General. AHF also reported $400,000 in political expenditures in 2013. After reviewing the public filings from that year, we found close to $800,000 expended. We can provide those documents as well."

"Please note that we were unable to find documentation on all of AHF’s political expenditures," Douglas added. "For example, we do not know the amount AHF spent on its campaign for a City Public Health Department, nor do we have any figures from the state of Ohio where they have conducted a substantial political campaign."

Also not yet available are the amounts of AHF's contributions to its California political action committee (PAC), Fair4CA.org, which was created by AHF employees and served to push the California legislature to enact AB 1576, which would have required condoms and other barrier protections to be incorporated into all sexually explicit content shot in California, as well as other AHF political objectives. That bill, of course, failed.

"All of the contributions by AHF to Fair4CA are attributable to AHF as a political expenditure, and I think the case could be made that any contributions to Fair4CA would count towards AHF's total political expenditures," Douglas added.

"For those of you who have repeatedly asked how AHF can continue to spend millions on its political activities while retaining its tax exempt status, we believe these documents give a preliminary answer: They under-report to avoid the revocation threshold," he concluded.

Douglas noted that the reason for today's press conference was that "in recent weeks AHF has spent $2 million dollars on pending ballot initiatives for 2016, and the fight over Measure B has heated up. As a result, we have received numerous inquiries about AHF’s political spending. To satisfy our curiosity we decided to review the available public documents.  We simply wanted to answer the lingering question about their political activities. Their harassment of our industry is what motivated us to find out how much they have spent on their obsession with the adult film industry."

At the press conference, Douglas handed out a three-ring binder full of documents that FSC has examined in coming to its conclusions. Those documents will also be available for download later today at the Free Speech Coalition website.

The binder also contained a letter to Attorney General Kamala Harris, titled simply "Request for Review." that letter stated, in part, "Our organization is concerned that this entity's [AHF] political activities have surpassed the legal spending limits and is in violation of their non-profit status. We have reviewed multiple newspaper reports and publicly available documents that appear to indicate that AHF has spent nearly $7 million over the past 4 years on lobbying/political activities, in excess of legal limits. Attached you will find a collection of the publicly-available documents detailing these activities. It is unclear whether there are additional lobbying/political expenses. Please note that there also apears to be multiple discrepancies between federal tax filings and reported campaign expenditures; this may be an indication of under-reported lobbying/political activity.

"We forward these documents to your attention with the request that California's experts and regulatory authorities review and make an independent determination on the legality of AHF's political spending and reporting," the letter concludes. "This request is based exclusively out of concern that all taxpayers are harmed if a non-profit entity is allowed to abuse its tax-exempt status."

The letter and accompanying folder were delivered this morning to Attorney General Harris's office in the Ronald Reagan State Office Building at 300 south Spring Street in Downtown. A copy was also sent to the Board of Directors of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.

When asked why FSC hadn't also sent their information on AHF to the Internal Revenue Service, the federal entity in charge of organizations' non-profit status, Douglas replied, "At this time, we are reviewing all options. We are starting with the California Attorney General and will decide whether any other actions are warranted. We feel it is best to have the proper legal authorities review the documents and determine whether they arrive at the same conclusion; that AHF has underreported its political contributions and that it has exceeded the four-year, $6 million limit."

Douglas further noted that AHF's situation seems similar to that of Blue Shield of California, which lost its tax-exempt status last year after having accumulated too much "cash on hand" and having failed to allocate the required percentages of money to patient care.

"Blue Shield was given multiple chances, several warnings, and they insisted they had met the criteria, but they lost," Douglas said.

Perhaps noteworthy: AHF reports an annual income of over $200 million, and assets of $700 million.

Revolution Force, Brainchild Of Internet Industry Vets, Launches

Revolution Force, Brainchild Of Internet Industry Vets, Launches

Posted Sep 02nd, 2015 12:42 PM

SACRAMENTO, Calif.—Several internet industry veterans have come together to launch Revolution Force, an exclusive affiliate network.

“Revolution Force has 50 years of combined experience in areas of affiliate marketing, media buying, demand generation, search engine marketing, search engine optimization, and product development,” according to company founder Sean Christian, and that experience was earned while building many of the largest brands ever to exist online. “When you look at Revolution Force's team leaders, you’ll notice we have built the world's largest dating sites and award winning affiliate programs including globally recognizable brands like: Adult FriendFinder, Cams.com, Penthouse, UpForIt, Together Networks, Cupid PLC, ClickDealer, Hustler, and Vivid. That level of success is important, because past success is the single best indicator of just how likely you are to exceed your own goals.”

There is no shortage of CPA and ad networks online these days, but experienced decisions makers are quickly learning that each ad network or media buying entity is not equal to every other, and that Revolution Force is already able to differentiate itself from other brands in very significant ways.

“Revolution Force partners with top advertisers, helping them to acquire users and optimize their KPIs by utilizing our unique access to down-funnel sales metrics and optimize methods that consistently deliver industry leading performance results” said Christian. “When you work with a team that includes Brent Simpson, Carmelo Lo Giudice, Jeremy Wagshul, Mark Rabinovitz and myself, you are getting direct access to a team that has built more than a handful of half-billion-dollar companies already. Check the biographies posted on our website at RevolutionForce.com or ask around and it will immediately become obvious why we are all so excited about this launch.” 

Revolution Force has built and implemented its own marketing budget as an efficient way to test every offer and gain first hand intelligence about the exact eCPM, and ePC of every opportunity before opening the offers up to strategic partners and client accounts. 

“We put our own money where our mouth is,” said Brent Simpson, vice president of Revolution Force. “And that is a crucial component of everything we do. Frankly, we believe there are too many consultants out there willing to spend your money to test their theories and that isn’t how traffic consulting should work. We tabulate real data from our own media buys and our clients benefit from every click we test because the money we spend becomes money they can save and use elsewhere in their operations to compound the growth of their brands.”

“The idea to build this network was simple,” said Lo Giudice. “We don't want to compete with companies anymore; we want to partner with them. Our industry reputation is strong enough that putting together an affiliate network and creating marketing technology makes perfect sense. We already have had a hand in building much of the early performance technology that networks rely on today, so for us it’s simple to talk about traffic acquisition with our affiliates and leverage their properties while helping our clients and strategic partners to monetize that traffic in ways that will yield an impressive ROI.”

FSC Calls for Attorney General Inquiry of AHF Lobbying

FSC Calls for Attorney General Inquiry of AHF Lobbying

LOS ANGELES—The Free Speech Coalition (FSC) has petitioned the Attorney General of the State of California to conduct an audit of the Los Angeles-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) to determine if the organization’s non-profit status should be revoked.

FSC representatives charge that over the past four years, AHF appears to have willfully and repeatedly violated multiple laws and regulations related to political spending by a non-profit, as well as grossly underreported political expenditures to the IRS.

“Many people have wondered how a non-profit like AHF could spend so much money in politics, given the strict limitations placed on non-profit political activity by the IRS and the State of California,” FSC board chair Jeffrey Douglas said. “The answer appears to be: by underreporting campaign expenditures on tax forms, even while filing much higher numbers on state lobbying disclosure forms. A non-profit organization should not be able to abuse the status granted to it by the state of California. Actions like these not only distort the political process, they starve in-need communities of critical services so that checks can be written to lobbyists.”

Among the FSC's findings are that:

• In 2012, AHF reported to LA County $2.3 million in political contributions in support of Measure B. However, AHF’s tax filings report only $1.6 million in total campaign expenses. That same year AHF also paid $100,000 to a lobbyist in Sacramento, and $200,000 to a lobbyist in Washington, D.C. bringing their annual total to $2.6 million—$1 million more than they reported to the IRS and the California Attorney General.

 • AHF’s total political and lobbying expenditures in the past four years is nearly $7 million—$1 million higher than the threshold for revocation of tax-exempt status.

In addition to the Attorney General, the FSC's letter and documents have been sent to the board members of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
