WE’VE GOT ISSUES |

By Sharan Street

Beyond the Spotlight Awards given on stage in Vegas are just part of the picture he Oscars of Porn—that’s the common nickname for the AVN Awards. We’ve got the celebrity presenters, the red carpet ... heck, the show is even broadcast on television, albeit not live, and on cable rather than a network station (but not basic cable). And along with the broadcast comes the pressure to streamline, which means that many awards are not presented on stage. The names of the winners do appear up on the big screen, but it’s not quite the same thing as graciously accepting the honor in person. In recognition of that shortcoming, we’d like to call attention to those winners, whose names appear starting on page 54. In particular, here are a few notable achievers who didn’t climb up on stage. First, something new: Best New Line, which went to Extreme Comixxx. Superhero porn has really taken off in popularity in a large part thanks to Extreme Comixxx’s faithful adaptations of comic book lore. An avowed comic book geek, company owner Jerry made a splash with hardcore superhero parodies. “We’d like to thank all the voters who recognized our efforts with Extreme Comixxx,” Jerry said. “We worked very hard to launch this brand and to create spectacular movies for the fans. The AVN Awards represent the pinnacle of achievement in our industry, so this award is a great validation and a big boost as we move forward with Extreme Comixxx productions like Wonder Woman Interactive, Iron Man XXX and many more to come.” Second, a couple of sure-fire repeat winners. Tom Byron Pictures’ Seasoned Players took home two AVN awards. Seasoned Players 16

earned Best MILF Release of the Year, while the series landed the award for Best MILF Series. Even more noteworthy, the series nabbed that honor for the fourth year in a row. Nikki Charm, who graced the cover of Seasoned Players 16, was fired up about the win. “It’s always an honor and a privilege to have the chance to work with Tom Byron,” Charm said. “It was a pleasure to be part of a project that enriched our history by showcasing our most treasured adult film actresses in a genre that is quite populated with very lovely yet contemporary stars.” Girlfriends Films reached a milestone of its own at the 2012 AVN Awards when voters named Women Seeking Women the Best All-Girl Series for the fifth straight year. Finally, there’s one category especially deserving of the spotlight: the AVN Awards Hall of Fame. Some of the stars have left us permanently; many others are still contributing very actively to the industry. Whatever their current status, we salute them with the deepest respect. Video Branch Hall of Fame Inductees: Juli Ashton, Rob Black, David Aaron Clark, Dale DaBone, Erik Everhard, Alexander DeVoe, Jenna Haze, Alisha Klass, Toni Ribas, Silvia Saint, Mark Spiegler, Scott Taylor, Inari Vachs, Stacy Valentine and Nacho Vidal. Pleasure Product Branch: Larry Garland, Eldorado Trading Co.; Joel Tucker, Stockroom; and Nick Orlandino, Pipedream Products.

PRODUCT PLACEMENT

James Deen PORN STAR NOTICED BY ‘NIGHTLINE,’ BRET EASTON ELLIS Male performer James Deen was the subject of a segment on venerable ABC news program Nightline in February and also was featured in an extensive story on ABCNews.com touting his popularity among women viewers. A veteran of thousands of scenes, AVN’s 2009 Male Performer of the Year also hit the mainstream news circuit in January when famed author Bret Easton Ellis, who penned American Psycho, tweeted that he wanted Deen to star in an upcoming movie he was writing. On Jan. 22 he wrote “James Deen is my first choice to play Christian or Ryan in LA noir micro budget Paul Schrader movie I’m writing. Nudity and acting a must…” On Jan. 28, Ellis tweeted that he “Just had a revealing dinner with James Deen: super-smart, funny, perfect for the part. And if he doesn’t get it I will be very disappointed.” Follow Deen’s adventures on JamesDeenBlog.com

Sunny Leone VIVID GIRL MAKES ASKMEN.COM TOP 99 DESIRABLE WOMEN Online magazine AskMen.com unveiled its annual list of the Top 99 Most Desirable Women for 2012, and one adult star made the list—the one and only Sunny Leone. Truth be told, the Vivid Girl’s world-class beauty alone qualifies her to be on the list, even if it was her recent appearance on the popular Indian reality show Bigg Boss 5 that seemed to open the AskMen editors’ eyes to Leone’s inner qualities. During her star turn on Bigg Boss 5, award-winning Indian filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt tapped Leone for a leading role in a sequel to his 2003 hit, Jism. The sequel, Jism 2, which despite its title is not Xrated and will contain no explicit sex scenes, starts shooting in March. According to recent news reports, Leone is taking Hindu lessons and working out in the gym to make sure she is in top linguistic and physical shape for the movie. In the meantime, tens of millions of men are currently feasting their eyes on Sunny Leone on the website of AskMen.com, which last year included former porn star Sasha Grey on the Top 99 list.

AVN Awards ‘SNL’ SPOOFS THE AVN AWARDS’ MEMORIAL REEL Just a couple weeks before the 29th annual AVN Awards Show, the still-relevantafter-all-these-years NBC sketch show Saturday Night Live included a timely segment skewering the “Oscars of porn.” In the admittedly very amusing sketch, SNL regular Bobby Moynihan, donning the signature mop-mane and mustache of Ron Jeremy, and newer cast member Abby Elliott, as fictional “Starlet of the Year Crystal Butt,” take the podium to introduce a tribute to such fallen industry notables as “Ricky Stroker, Actor,” “Tony Dingle, Pizza Guy” and “Dong Corleone, ‘The Dongfather.’” This isn’t the first time SNL has satirized the AVNs. In a 2007 sketch with then cast member Darrell Hammond playing Al Gore, a genuine AVN trophy was featured as one of Gore’s myriad awards. (The category: Best Group Sex Scene, for his work with four others in “the adult version of An Inconvenient Truth.”)

Pleasure Dynasty COMPANY’S APPROACH TO INVESTORS NOTED ON CNBC.COM Pleasure Dynasty was the topic of a feature article on CNBC.com that focused on unique investment opportunities within the adult industry. The new company offers ordinary people a chance to invest in the adult industry. “Porn companies have always been interested in the girl next door, but now there’s a company that’s taking an interest in her parents,” writes CNBC.com contributor Chris Morris. “Pleasure Dynasty is trying something new in the industry: opening the filmmaking process up to outside investors and letting them add the title of adult film producer to their résumé.” Mentioned in the article is Jesse Jama, who invested six figures in the company and created his own studio, Jama Entertainment. Jama will soon see the release of its first movie, Zorro XXX: A Pleasure Dynasty Parody. “PD Films is one of the most fascinating ways to invest one’s money right now … maybe ever,” stated Carlos Cavero, owner of Pleasure Dynasty. “Investors with a love of adult film can use their money to make even more money, as well as be a part of creating something special.” To read the CNBC.com profile, go to CNBC.com/id/46057555.

CEO of Immoral Productions Stars in ‘Danland’ Documentary

CROSSOVER REPORT

“Porno” Dan Leal, CEO of Immoral Productions, is the subject of a new documentary titled Danland from filmmaker Alexandra Berger. The filmmakers followed Leal for three and a half years starting in 2004, just after he received his first AVN Award nomination. (Leal is pictured at right at the bar during January’s 2012 AVN Awards; photo by EMMreport.com.) Quitting his job as a successful office machine salesman, Leal got his start filming amateur porn in Virginia, and the 89-minute documentary traces Leal’s life from those humble beginnings as he begins to gain more notoriety in the porn world—all while looking for true love. During filming Berger said she began to see her role as a cultural anthropologist seeking to uncover the way of life and love. “Although I didn’t know what to expect when I first met Dan, it was immediately evident that he was still in pain from his last breakup,” Berger said. She continued, “Dan also told me that he had decided to stop acting in his own films and concentrate on living a cleaner personal life in a step toward finding real intimacy. As a true believer in love, I wanted to believe that this could happen.” Of course, knowing Leal, nothing ever quite goes as planned. Danland premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival, which serves as a showcase for the discovery of new and emerging talent in the film industry.

Riley Reid

Checking in with the newbie who’s already been called an ‘Ultimate Fuck Toy’ Hometown: Miami, Florida | Measurements: 5-foot-4, 114 lbs. | Age: 20 Have you always been an exhibitionist? Were you a fan of porn? Oh yeah, definitely. Big time. I lost my virginity in a movie theater. I’ve always just been really sexually a player. I like having two boys on each arm. What kind of hesitation did you have coming into the business? I was just really nervous. Not so much about the cameras but the exploitation—people from my hometown, from my school finding out and all that. They found out pretty quickly and in a way that helped me deal with it early on. I didn’t have to keep this big secret. It’s funny, in this one Brazzers video I turn to the camera and say, “I don’t give a fuck!” in this funny way. And at this high school party I was at, a few people came up to me and repeated that line. I was like “Hey! You’re watching my scenes, you pervs!” How has your experience been so far? It’s really been great. Honestly, it’s nothing like I expected. It’s really professional and organized. It’s one thing to do your scene and go home, but then after you have movies that come out, you realize you have fans! That’s a whole other aspect I didn’t consider. People become obsessed with you—hopefully in a good way—and follow your career and your movies. You didn’t realize you’d have fans? No! I guess I did, but it’s not something you really think about beforehand. Now I think about my fans during my scenes… Wait. You think about your fans during your scenes? Explain. I love and adore my fans. Truly. When I do certain scenes I envision particular fans because I know those are the scenes they like. Like when I give handjobs I’m thinking of one particular person that’s commented about my handjobs. When I look at the camera, I think of you. All the feedback helps me be the best I can be. It inspires me to try harder. What was it like making Ultimate Fuck Toy: Riley Reid for Jules Jordan Video? It was just a whole lot of fun. I worked with Jules himself, Voodoo, Chris Strokes and a few others. Having my “own” movie after such a short time in the business was an honor. To put all of myself in that movie and show people different sides of my sexuality was a challenge and I think it was the best work I’ve ever done. I felt really secure in what I was doing and how I looked. I really hope people like it. I get wet just thinking about it.[Reid is pictured at left in a scene from the DVD.]

ADULT WHO’S WHO

The people who knew you, would they ever have expected Riley Reid, big-time porn star? You seem way too cute and innocent. I was the teacher’s pet, advanced study, straight-A student. I was expected to go to college, join the Peace Corps and become a teacher or something like that. I think my family all pretty much knows what I do—my dad kind of does and my mom definitely does—I still live at home. My mom is supportive. Tell me your story. How did you get into the adult business? Well, at first I was uncomfortable with the idea of doing porn and fucking on camera, so I started out doing Reality Kings’ In the VIP, where you just kind of hook up with girls and party. As I started doing that I became more comfortable with the idea of doing porn. So I did my first scene under the name of Paige Riley for Bang Bros. I worked for a lot of the Florida companies under an unlicensed agent and when it came time for me to come out to L.A. to work she tried two or three times and just didn’t have the connections. So I finally met another male talent who introduced me to Kevin [of Type 9 Models]. It was also around this time I found out that the name Paige Riley was taken by a BBW model, so I had to find a new name. What did you shoot when you first came to L.A.? I worked a lot for Brazzers, Bang Bros, New Sensations, Lethal Hardcore and a few other companies until I became more known and developed a reputation as a good, reliable performer. I’m excited about my first shoot for Digital Playground coming up, and I haven’t worked for Penthouse or Hustler yet but I hope to very soon. I’ve done maybe 60 scenes now. 26 | AVN.com | 3.12

Do you see this as a career? I do. I want to save my money and open a vegan restaurant in Miami. Porn has really helped me get my shit together and helped me be responsible. I’m learning about myself and about business. I have my eyes wide open and I don’t want to miss a thing! What do you enjoy off set? I love music and movies, especially Coffee and Cigarettes, Pulp Fiction and Tarantino. I love my dog. I don’t watch TV really, but if I do it would be a cartoon or something on National Geographic. I listen to a lot of indie rock music and I love going out dancing in Miami.

CZECH PERFORMER ADDED TO EUROPEAN FLESHLIGHT GIRLS Fleshlight has added Czech adult performer Carla Cox to its roster of European Fleshlight Girls. Cox caught Fleshlight’s attention during Eurowebtainment’s 10th anniversary in Vienna last October, where she was the only adult talent with her own booth. “I always looked up to the Fleshlight girls like Riley Steele, Jenna Haze and Tori Black,” Carla said. “It’s a great honor to be part of Fleshlight organization and represent such an innovative company with the other girls and especially with the European Fleshlight girls. In addition of having recently launched my official website, this opportunity couldn’t happen in a better timing. Since the beginning Fleshlight has been very supportive.” Cox had her own booth at the Internext Expo and the AEE show in Las Vegas, showing for the first time the prototype of her very personal Fleshlight device. Joined by Eufrat—another Czech model already on the Fleshlight European Girls team—Cox greeted fans, signed flyers and posters and spread the word about CarlaCoxRocks.com and Fleshlight. (Cox, above, pictured at her AEE booth.) For more information, visit Fleshlight.com.

John Stagliano returns to feature filmmaking with ‘Voracious’

ADULT WHO’S WHO

John “Buttman” Stagliano returns to feature filmmaking in a big way with the episodic vampire series Voracious, the first installment of which premiered on EvilAngel.com on Valentine’s Day. Each episode to the series, of which there will be seven, will be released monthly for members of Evil Angel’s flagship site. The DVD is expected to street in September. Voracious is Stagliano’s first feature since 2007’s Fashionistas Safado: Berlin. Shot mostly in Berlin and Budapest, Voracious stars Brooklyn Lee and Lea Lexis in an eerie vampire tale that Stagliano kept faithful to traditional vampire lore. “I did get some great stuff in Berlin and Budapest, which lends it some atmosphere and makes the story work better,” he said. “I shot a lot of it at night, which was challenging. The movie is more about tension building and music and dialogue that are comparable to mainstream entertainment in terms of being able to hold people’s interests, and certainly technically on par.” The story follows a group of vampires that have been in hiding in order to protect their secret. If they’d be found, they’d be killed. They keep themselves quiet and protected in several cities in the world.

30 | AVN.com | 3.12

“However, they’ve had someone who’s been changed into a vampire that’s not happy about that and has been having second thoughts—that’s Brooklyn Lee.” Stagliano called Brooklyn “a little crazy and that fits the part. She did a phenomenal job. I’ve never had an actress perform on the level she did in terms of emotion. It was an amazing experience working with her. She nailed it.” Lexis, a native Romanian, is the second female star of the movie. The rest of the cast includes Omar Galanti who plays the head vampire, Rocco Siffredi as the enforcer for the vampire clan, and Manuel Ferrara is the lead male actor who plays an anthropologist. Evil Angel’s decision to release Voracious in episodic format is more than a marketing angle—it was necessary given the budget. “I did a feature for tens of thousands of dollars and I needed a way to recoup that investment and that’s not going to happen from standard DVD sales,” Stagliano said. “I shoot rougher sex so I don’t have the cable revenue other companies have. I had to find another way.” If all goes as planned, this innovative distribution method will allow Stagliano to direct Voracious 2, which he hopes to do.

Seaman First Class Clayton Archer of DirtyTony.com Falcon Signs Micah Brandt as Exclusive Model

Dirty Tony’s Clayton Archer grew up in a small town outside Waco, Texas. After high school he served five years in the Navy, based in Virginia Beach, Va., then went on to study mechanical engineering. To earn money in college, he did some underwear modeling—but his porn career didn’t begin until 2010, after he contacted several studios and Dirty Tony offered him his first scene. You can read lots of additional Q&A with Clayton by checking out this story’s online version at Cybersocket.com/link/byjqt.

Falcon Studios has signed Micah Brandt to be an exclusive model for one year. Bringing an ethnic flavor to Falcon, his signing is part of an effort by company president Chris Ward to diversify casting at the legendary studio. “Micah is stunningly beautiful,” commented Ward,” and to me, he represents our kind of stud—a wonderful face, a near perfect body and an attitude that is both friendly and sexually charged. We hope to have a long relationship with Micah. He is an excellent performer and we are proud to have him represent the studio.” “I’m looking forward to working for the highly professional team at Falcon,” said Brandt. “To be an exclusive for the biggest studio in the world with the best directors and production team is a privilege.”

Fave porn project so far? Any scenes where I’ve worn my old uniforms, because I feel sexy in them. Back when my squadron mates and I would be putting on our uniforms, we used to say we were “putting on the old sexy suits, because we know Maintenance Control is going to fuck us today!” Non-porn jobs you’ve worked? In the Navy I did many jobs, but mainly worked on ejection seats and environmental control systems of F-14 Tomcats and FA-18E/F Super Hornets. After the Navy, I studied mechanical engineering full time and did some underwear modeling. Now I work at a media production company. Ever had sex on the job? I jerked off in my rack every day at sea. A few times on roving hanger watch I got bored and horny, so I got in the cockpit of a plane and jerked off all over the instrument cluster. I’ve had sex twice while underway—once in a fuel pump room and once in a dry storage pantry, both on board the USS Harry S. Truman. What are your hobbies? Riding my motorcycle, shooting at the range, and hunting and fishing with my dad. I also enjoy archery, photography, working out, cooking, museums, travel, hanging out with friends, and playing horseshoes.

How did you start doing porn? I always wanted to do porn, but I couldn’t while I was in the Navy. In February 2010 I decided to apply to some gay porn studios, and in May Dirty Tony called me up personally to ask if I wanted to do my first scene.

A pivotal life experience? When I was in the Navy I was doing routine maintenance on an ejection seat at night on the flight deck. During that time my foot got caught in the primary ejection handle and I was struggling to get my boot out of it. That’s when I looked down with my flashlight and realized the ejection handle was not properly safety pinned and it was unlocked. If I had accidentally pulled that handle while trying to free my boot the seat would have gone off and I would have been killed from the impact. Life lessons from the past five years? Always expect the worst, but hope for the best—and don’t forget to have fun along the way.

Riley Price Announces His Retirement from Adult Performance It’s not every day that a top porn star willingly walks away from a successful career, but that’s exactly what Riley Price is doing. On January 6, Price officially announced his upcoming retirement from adult performance. Although Riley’s fans will undoubtedly be sad to see him go, they can take solace in the fact that he’ll be even more active behind the camera as he directs and manages RileyPriceless.com. “This has been a long time coming,” Price told Cybersocket. “I’ll still be doing live shows. It’s just that performing with other models will cease. I need to focus on producing. I think I have proven myself as a performer. I’m ready for the next chapter and a new challenge. I want to be the best producer in gay porn. I can be it, too — but I’ve come to the realization that I can’t spread myself so thin.” Price added, “Performing feels old to me. It’s time to change the direction of my life. This is just a case of my heart, soul, and body all saying, ‘You’ve done porn performance. Now let’s try something different.’ It’s time to move on.”

In January 1985, the AVN Awards Show was born—in the bingo room in Las Vegas’ struggling Aladdin Hotel, where attendees feasted on packaged cheese, crackers and discount wine.

Clyde DeWitt thinks—although I suspect readers will be hard-pressed to find any disagreement. It all needs to be said. As this issue went to press, company founder Paul Fishbein passed the baton along to the new regime at AVN Media Network. Though he and partner Darren Roberts sold the company two years ago, Fishbein stayed on as a consultant. But now, almost three decades after he started the business, he is moving on to new entrepreneurial ventures. Recognition for what Paul has accomplished is long overdue. In a speech I gave some ten years ago, I held up the current issue of AVN and said, “The glue that binds this industry is in the spine of this magazine.” Still true! Paul Fishbein is responsible for the placement of that glue. In 1984, I left my Houston life of defending the Bayou City’s porn shops and accused criminals, moving to Tinseltown to take up a new career. Adult Video News then was nearly 2 years old, having grown from its beginning as an eight-page monthly newsletter to an average of 32 pages. I thought it odd that the premier industry publication came from Philadelphia, given the fact that the adult video industry was materially all situated in Los Angeles, with a few outliers still in San Francisco and New York City. A then-industry heavyweight, the late Bob Tremont, described the industry in those days as “the same 25 people performing at the same six of Vogel’s soundstages.” It was a little more than that, but Bob’s point was well taken. Paul told me once that when he launched Adult Video News (which wouldn’t become AVN for some years hence) in February of 1983, he budgeted $25 a week for personal expenses. He poured every other penny he had into his new publication. He then was working at a mega-video store in Philly, running Adult Video News out of a post office box in the same shopping center. When I first met Paul in 1985 on one of his periodic West Coast swings, he impressed me as an articulate, insightful, junior welterweight ball of fire. A Temple University journalism major (’82), Paul’s energy and intellect made me wonder why he wasn’t pursuing a career with the Tribune Company, Hearst or one of the other then-biggies in the publishing industry. But Paul wanted to do his own thing—and he did so in a big way. Even in its infancy, Adult Video News was the video retailer’s indispensable handbook for the “adult section.” Understand history here: Until the advent of adult video in the late 1970s (then VHS and Beta), the only sources of adult motion pictures were seedy porn shops and ramshackle auditorium theaters (which had given way to the multi-cinema business model and generally were situated in run-down neighborhoods), neither of which were attractive places to the middle class and both of which were frequent targets of local law enforcement. “Mom and pop” video rental stores paved the way for a new channel of distribution for adult motion pictures—or at least those of them willing to stand up to the local gendarmerie. When Blockbuster started in 1985, it fueled the fire by refusing to carry adult. Adult Video News was where the “mom and pops” around the country would look for guidance in stocking their adult sections. It took only until 1984 for Adult Video News to transition into a full-on color format, matching mainstream magazines. At that juncture, Paul quit his videostore job, hoping against hope that his magazine would be successful; and successful it would be. It was only natural that a publication featuring movie reviews would announce annual awards; and Adult Video News would be no exception. From its first year, awards were published each January. Year Three, 1985, saw the first

awards show, logically held during the Consumer Electronics Show. (CES then included an adult-video section, the predecessor to AEE). In January 1985, the AVN Awards Show was born—in the bingo room in Las Vegas’ struggling Aladdin Hotel (imploded a few years later to become what is now Planet Hollywood), where attendees feasted on packaged cheese, crackers and discount wine and then sat in folding chairs to watch as Paul dispensed the awards from an improvised stage— from which he fell at one point, saved from injury only by an alert Russ Hampshire. The mid-1980s would give the industry a jolt. President Reagan’s attorney general, Edwin Meese III, would present the July 1986 final report of the Attorney General’s Commission on Pornography— the so-called “Meese Commission”—a report that would fuel a six-year Department of Justice campaign of terror against the adult video industry. The DOJ would send many to prison and forfeit millions in assets, all in the name of morality.

Because AVN focused on reviewing movies and conveying other industry tidbits, in July of 1989 Paul created a semimonthly newsletter, Free Speech, because there was a constant deluge of legal news meriting a publication about it. (A monthly legal column existed only in the early days of Adult Video News.) Free Speech, which represented my first writing for AVN, lost its punch in late 1990, as federal obscenity prosecutions waned. As a substitute, I was asked to write the first legal column for AVN in a half-dozen years, erroneously titled “Quarterly Legal Update”—erroneously because legal news kept coming at such a frenetic pace that a column was necessary every month. I have been honored to have written AVN monthly legal columns ever since then. I remember being at CES one Saturday morning in 1987. Paul was pacing around the show at the now-closed Sahara Hotel, complaining, “I haven’t even made my nut yet,” referring to that evening’s AVN Awards Show to be held at the Tropicana. The show ultimately sold out, and it was spectacular. The AVN Awards Show grew to the overpowering presence that it now is, unavoidably called by observers, the “Oscars of porn” (to the chagrin of American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences). The show quickly grew to be the spectacular annual cable television event that it is today. Since its early days, its “red carpet” has been the destination of thousands upon thousands of fans, seeking their favorite adult stars for pictures and autographs. In 1991, Paul packed up AVN and its staff and moved from Philadelphia to LA, the so-called “San Pornando Valley,” where the action was. However, the move did nothing to subdue his loyalty to the Eagles, Flyers and Phillies. CES had been the longtime gathering place for the adult video industry—so much so that it was named in a 1979 federal indictment as the locus of an industry-wide conspiracy to distribute obscene materials throughout the United States. Back in The Day, CES was so much different than what AEE became. The adult show—the “Video Software” exhibit section—was mobbed with transistor purveyors from all over the world, seeking autographs from and photos with their favorite adult stars. Many in the adult industry wondered why the industry didn’t have its own show—and Paul Fishbein made it happen. In 1998, the Adult Entertainment Expo was born. Droves of CES attendees arrived at AEE that year, only to learn that their CES badges wouldn’t garner them admission to the adult show as in previous years, but they were allowed in anyway—all 25,000 of them. Subsequently, they were charged $40 a shot (more for VIP treatment), which seemed to not diminish the numbers one bit. Paul had hit the nail on the head! More than just that happened in 1998. Fishbein and partner Darren Roberts (who came to AVN in 1996) together acquired a fledgling trade show and magazine called ia2000—the trade show to become Internext and the magazine to become AVN Online. Both rocketed to success, tracking the exploding adult internet industry. (Remember TGP galleries?) Another 1998 event that AVN put together was an industry-wide conference in Cancun. All of the luminaries in the adult industry were there: Steve Hirsch (Vivid), Russ Hampshire (VCA), Eddie Wedelstedt (Goalie), Steve Orenstein (Wicked), the late Lenny Friedlander (New

Beginnings), Frank Kay (IVD), John Stagliano (Evil Angel), Michael Warner (Great Western Litho), Susan Colvin (California Exotic Novelties), Scott Tucker (Topco), and more. There was much to discuss: What is the internet going to do to adult video? What is to come of it given the declining prices? What if 2257 is enforced? Will federal obscenity enforcement resume? Paul understood the need to gather the industry giants—and they all gathered with-

to speak to that illustrious group. As noted, there were important legal topics to be discussed. However, the whole thing stood to be the downfall of my credibility. I spoke about the lurking problem of internet piracy. After all, people were at the very beginning of swapping music files over the Internet—Napster would emerge shortly thereafter—and it was only a matter of time until technology would facilitate the swapping of video files. Remember, this was during the era of dialup connections, 1200-baud modems and 200 megabyte hard drives! Among the negative criticism was a pronouncement that my speech was a “great standup comedy routine.” Gene Ross, who was covering the meeting for AVN, was inundated with a host of reasons why my predictions were ludicrous. Fulton’s Folly! As the 2000s progressed, AVN continued to grow with the industry. Adult toys became more popular with the growth of the “love boutique” industry; so Adult Novelty Business was born. As piracy and the recession continued to diminish the industry’s revenue streams, AVN, AVN Online and Adult Novelty Business merged into the single publication that now exists. Fishbein leaves AVN with an unmatched industry legacy. Over the years, he assembled crews of talented people including Stuart Frank, Mark Kernes, John Paone, Tom Hymes, Eli Cross, Mark Kulkis, Renee Johnson, Sara Harter, Jennifer Rosenblatt and many others. The industry will sorely miss Paul Fishbein’s contributions, and it should never forget what he has done for it.

The file-sharing world was rattled on Jan. 19, and the aftershocks are still being felt weeks later. After a two-year-long investigation that saw cooperation between the United States, Germany, New Zealand and Hong Kong police departments, Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom and several other high-level employees were arrested and charged with numerous counts of racketeering, conspiracy to commit copyright infringement, money laundering, and various other charges. If found guilty, the accused could face up to 50 years in prison, not to mention fines in the millions of dollars. The 72 page indictment reads like a modern-day Scarface. The 6-foot-6, 300-pound Dotcom often flaunted the law, living in the most posh mansion in all of New Zealand complete with a private helicopter and a collection of expensive cars that would make Jay Leno weep with jealousy. The cars came with vanity license plates reading “GUILTY,” “GOD” and “HACKER,” just to name a few. The arrests came after a raid on his compound involving over 70 police officers and ended with Dotcom locking himself in a safe room and arming himself with a sawed-off shotgun. Megaupload is accused of running an elaborate and massive copyright infringement scheme. Via its cloud-based file hosting service, users could upload files and then share those files with other users. While it is conceivable that the site had a legitimate usage, emails uncovered in the investigation paint a fairly clear picture that the overwhelming use of the site was to infringe copyrights, and Megaupload would financially reward users for doing so. Despite some uploaders having thousands of reported instances of copyright infringement, Megaupload did nothing to terminate repeat infringers from using its service. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act specifically gives online service providers immunity from wrongdoing if it establishes and enforces the termination of repeat infringers.

Additionally, internal communications between Megaupload employees showed that not only did they know massive copyright infringement was occurring on their site, they also actively participated in uploading materials themselves and directing other employees to obvious copyright infringing files. All in all the indictment is pretty damning, and it would seem Dotcom’s only hope for a favorable outcome would be if a jurisdictional technicality might pop up in his favor. But while the world awaits the outcome of the Megaupload case, other file hosts with similar business models are already taking action. Within days of the Mega raid, numerous other file hosts began to voluntarily shut down their affiliate programs, payout plans and in some instances even their basic file-sharing platforms. Filesonic.com, Fileserve.com, FileJungle.com, Filepost.com, Uploadstation and x7.to have all shut down their file-sharing options. Instead users can only download the files they uploaded themselves. Other sites closed down affiliate accounts, so there is no longer a financial reward to upload copyrighted materials. While all of these actions have been self-imposed, it’s apparent that these site owners are either cashing out before they get caught or they are just waiting to see what happens with Megaupload. Interestingly enough, uncovered in the Mega indictment was a letter sent by Dotcom to PayPal months prior to his arrest, in which Dotcom labeled competition like Filesonic and Fileserve as engaging in “criminal activity” for many of the same actions he is now being charged with. While pro-piracy news outlets seem to want to overstate the Megaupload arrests as having a chilling effect even on legitimate file hosting services, there is nothing in the Mega raids to suggest sites like Dropbox, SendSpace and YouSendIt are in any danger of running afoul of the law. In reality, the clear distinction is obvious in sites offering payouts for “popular” uploads and sites clearly designated for true cloud storage. But this hasn’t stopped the piracy apologists and their well-funded foundations from conflating legal file hosting with what is fairly obvious criminal enterprise. If the Megaupload case results in prison time for the defendants, it’s likely to send the message to other illegal operators it is not worth the risk to continue. Coupled with increased scrutiny of torrent (peer-topeer) piracy sites and the continued effort to legitimize tube sites, the tide seems to be turning ever so slightly in favor of those who work hard to produce entertainment for the masses. While copyright holders may be tempted to celebrate, this is not the time to let up. The enemy is weakened; with a few more knockout punches, we can send the freeloaders and con artists back to the dark, shadowy underbelly of the internet, far from the eyes of millions of potential customers.

NEW DEAL |

By Buzz Killington

Live From Los Angeles … It’s LiveGonzo.com!

BUSINESS SENSE

LiveGonzo.com recently inked a deal with Jules Jordan Video to distribute DVDs of original content from the live shoots on the site.

All Live, All Gonzo Kagney Linn Karter, Katsuni, Andy San Dimas and Misty Stone in High Class Ass. 42 | AVN.com | 3.12

Nothing beats the thrill of live entertainment. From a concert to a comedy show to a sporting event, watching a live event is the essence of true entertainment. Enter Raul Cristian and his website, LiveGonzo.com, which taps into the hairraising excitement of a live shoot. LiveGonzo.com features the top shooters and stars in adult entertainment performing real-time, interactive sex scenes. No cuts, no editing, just raw, hardcore sex four times per week and broadcast in high definition. Launched two years ago at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo, LiveGonzo.com was Cristian’s answer to combat declining sales. “The live stuff started from my perspective three years ago at AEE because I wanted to do something different, to give consumers something unique and unlike anything else,” Cristian said. “Seeing all the piracy and tube sites, sales were down, and we were struggling, so this was my answer. Maybe the only thing that might have a chance to succeed [in this market] is to do something live, but not cam stuff, but to shoot my stuff, high-end stuff.” And Cristian’s “stuff ” certainly is high end. Cristian is the man behind Cruel Media, a production outfit that’s won numerous AVN awards. The company’s well-known series includes Prime Cups, My Evil Sluts, All Internal and Give Me Pink. A quick look at the live schedule for the site in February confirms Cristian’s assertion that he only wants the biggest names to shoot. With the talent all booked by Chris Streams, February’s lineup included shows with Lisa Ann, Jessie Andrews, Lexi Belle, Amy Ried, Kagney Linn Karter, Bridgette B., Julia Ann and Asa Akira. In addition to attracting top-tier talent, Cristian has secured the services of adult’s top directors too. John Stagliano, Manuel Ferrara, Jake Malone, Jonni Darkko, Jay Sin, Chris Streams, Andrew Youngman and Clara G. all have shot scenes for the site. Cristian tested the market and technology for the LiveGonzo.com service by broadcasting several live shoots on Clara-G.com and AssTitans.com in late 2009. Those scenes are now part of the LiveGonzo database. “I did very aggressive marketing and market testing for this, first to all customers and all the people who were on chats on our previous scenes,” Cristian explained. “They were thrilled and told us it was such a good experience and a new experience. All the people who were online really love it and the producers think it is something new and they can be really close to the fan. It’s very difficult to shoot live but it can be very fun.” The immediacy of live content can’t be duplicated, and neither can the feedback. LiveGonzo.com features a chat module where subscribers can instantly offer their opinion on the scene.

“The first show we had like 40 people in chat and I realized this had to be fun for them to watch,” Cristian said. “We try to make it look easy. It’s not, but we’re that good.” Two years into production, along with a huge financial investment in the talent and technology, Cristian is more excited than ever about the future of live content. “I still believe this is one of the ways I can compete in such a competitive marketplace where everything is free is to offer a premium live product,” he said. “The best male talent, the best female talent with the best production quality will win.” In addition to the live streaming aspect of LiveGonzo.com, the company recently inked a deal with Jules Jordan Video to distribute DVDs of its content originally broadcast on the site. The first Live Gonzo DVD releases through JJV were High Class Ass and Big Booty Shake Down, both out in January. High Class Ass features Kagney Linn Karter, Andy San Dimas, Katsuni, Maya Hills, and Misty Stone with Manuel Ferrara, Mr. Pete and Michael Stefano. Big Booty Shake Down features Alexis Texas, Kristina Rose, Jynx Maze, London Keyes, and Katja Kassin with Ferrara, Everhard and Stefano. The DVDs all contain five scenes and lots of BTS footage. Last month, JJV and Live Gonzo rolled out Big Titty Time and Anal Invitation with stars such as Lisa Ann, Jenna Presley, Sophie Dee, Amy Ried and Chanel Preston. Ultimately, in the business of sex, it’s important to not lose sight of why people subscribe to LiveGonzo.com and what they are expecting to see. “This business is about fun because it’s about sex,” Cristian said. “Shooting people naked in front of the camera is about capturing the pleasure between two people. We have the most unique website in the world. No one does what we do.”

efitting its new venue at The Joint concert hall inside the Hard Rock Hotel, this year’s AVN Awards began as no other has in the past. As guests were being seated, they were treated to a collage of hot images from Magik View Entertainment movies and then, in a tribute to porn’s past, a slide show of this year’s inductees into AVN’s Hall of Fame. But of course the thing that really caught the audience’s attention was the entry onto the stage of Belladonna and the Belladonna Dancers. The industry has known that Belladonna has been into acrobatic theatrics for some time now, but few were prepared to see her climb her way up a pair of silk sashes until, at about 30 feet above the stage, the lithe brunette began a series of aerial maneuvers, many of which were mimicked by her dancers far below, that left the audience gasping.

nd it was definitely an evening of big winners, with Wicked Pictures’ Rocki Whore Picture Show: A Hardcore Parody taking home nine trophies, including Best Parody - Comedy, Best Director - Parody for Brad Armstrong, and Best Screenplay - Parody, which Armstrong co-wrote. Wicked scores two awards beyond that as well, one for Jessica Drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex as Best Educational Release. Another big-scoring movie was Asa Akira Is Insatiable 2, from Elegant Angel, which took home seven awards, and Asa herself scored Best Solo Sex Scene trophy. And speaking of Elegant Angel, its mantelpiece might have a bit of trouble holding the 21 awards it received last evening. Its closest competition, Evil Angel and Jules Jordan Video, each received 12 trophies for movies the studios created and/or distributed. Other top winners included Brooklyn Lee for Best New Starlet, Xander Corvus as Best Male Newcomer, Jessie Andrews as Best Actress for Portrait of a Call Girl (which took several awards), Dale DaBone as Best Actor for Elvis XXX: A Porn Parody, Bobbi Starr and Manuel Ferrara as Performers of the Year, India Summer as MILF/Cougar Performer of the Year, and Bailey Jay as Transsexual Performer of the Year. This year’s host comedian was Dave Attell, best known in the adult community for his Showtime series Dave’s Old Porn, and his “partners in porn” for the evening were the award-winning actresses Bree Olson and Sunny Leone.

BOBBI STARR Female Performer of the Year It’s been a tremendous year for Bobbi Starr. The newly turned directrix for Evil Angel capped off a year of signature performances with the highly coveted AVN award for Female Performer of the Year, which was among four total honors she garnered that evening (the others being Best All-Sex Release, Mixed Format for Bobbi’s World; Best Porn Star Website; and Best POV Sex Scene with Erik Everhard and Andy San Dimas in Double Vision 3). Long one of porn’s most versatile performers and actresses, Starr was overcome with emotion backstage after winning her big trophy. “It’s really beyond words. I am so thrilled and thankful,” she said. “This is such a high honor in the business, and wow, just wow. Thanks to my agent Mark Spiegler, all the people I worked with, AVN, my fans. Everyone. This is something I’ll never forget.”

JESSIE ANDREWS Best Actress, Portrait of a Call Girl (Elegant Angel) Adult industry ingénue Jessie Andrews gave the powerhouse performance of the year as Elle, a young high-end prostitute in process of discovering herself in the Graham Travis directed Portrait of a Call Girl. The movie also won Best Feature and the first-ever Movie of the Year Award. But it was fans and critics alike who were captivated by Andrews’ performance. Her combination of wide-eyed innocence and alluring sexuality drew you in and made you care about Elle’s fate. “I put so much of myself into this movie,” Andrews said. “It’s funny because I looked at the script and pretty much already knew my lines. It was a touching story and a real privilege to play such a real character. Thanks to Elegant Angel and Graham for giving me such a great role. It’s something I’ll never forget.” Neither will we, Jessie.

MANUEL FERRARA Male Performer of the Year The suave Frenchman continued his winning ways in 2012 with AVN awards for both performing and directing. Ferrara, one of the hardest-working male performers in the business, won his fourth Male Performer of the Year award, the most in the show’s 29-year history. Ferrara also garnered wins for Best Anal Series (Evil Anal), Best Big Butt Series (Phat Bottom Girls) and was the other half in the Best Boy/Girl Scene for The Bombshells 3 (Elegant Angel) with Lexi Belle. “It’s really important to show how much you want to be here, how lucky you feel that you’re here,” Ferrara said. “That’s really how I feel every day. Thank you everyone.”

nce the award presentations began, the parade of stars was non-stop. This year’s presenters included the leadoff team of Riley Steele, Kaylani Lei and Chyna, who handed trophies to winners of the Best Oral Sex Scene and Best Threeway Scene-Girl/Girl/Boy—and Riley one to herself, after she swept the Fan Awards (picking up wins for Best Body, Favorite Porn Star and Twitter Queen, and sharing the honors for Hottest Sex Scene for her co-stars in Babysitters 2). Many of the stars were appropriately enthusiastic when receiving their trophies. “Fuck yeah!” exclaimed Asa upon winning the Best Anal Scene Award. “Thank you, Elegant Angel, and thank you to my asshole,” while her on-screen partner Nacho Vidal did almost exactly the same. The next award also saw the first of the show’s technical glitches, when the teleprompter quit just as the presenters were about to read the nominees for Best Actress—but that didn’t dull Jessie Andrews’ jubilation at winning. “Holy crap!” she exclaimed. My hands are shaking!” Shortly thereafter Chanel Preston, upon hearing that Jules Jordan had won Best Gonzo Release for Dangerous Curves, in which she appeared, shouted, “My first anal scene!” Upon receiving his Best Actor Award, Dale DaBone dropped a few bombshells.

DALE DABONE Best Actor Elvis XXX: A Porn Parody (Axel Braun Productions/Vivid Entertainment) Consider it kismet that Dale DaBone won Best Actor for his role as Elvis—his second win in this category in as many years. Not only does the guy resemble the young king of rock ‘n’ roll but his dad earned a living as an Elvis impersonator and DaBone himself shares a birthday with the King. It was a career defining performance from DaBone—and possibly his penultimate one as he was set to move back to Florida the day after the awards and contemplated retirement as he was set to get married. The award also took on special significance for him as DaBone’s mother committed suicide last summer. He dedicated the award to her. “My mom loved Elvis,” he said as he accepted his award. “And my dad—who I haven’t seen in 25 years—was an Elvis impersonator. More than anything else, this is award is something that is very dear to me. Thank you so very much.”

fter noting that his mom, a longtime Elvis Presley fan, was proud of her son’s role in Elvis XXX, he revealed, “I’m moving to Fort Lauderdale tomorrow, I’m getting married, I’m not quitting the business but I’m moving on to try another part of my life.” When it was announced that Ettore Bucci had won Best Director-Foreign Release for Mission Asspossible, he brought nearly the entire cast on stage. “I want to thank all the fans, Mick Blue and these European people for having me on their boat,” said Mr. Pete, who played the ocean liner captain. “It was the most awesome thing I’ve ever done.” Later, when the movie won the Best Foreign Feature award, Mr. Pete carried the theme forward: “Thanks to all the fans, we really appreciate this. I’m the only American up here, so I want to say thank you for all my Europeans.” Then Bucci himself took the microphone and told the audience, “Magik View is a baby; it’s only one year old. It was founded in 2011—60 feature films, and 650 vignettes, and as my friend says, ‘You ain’t seen nothing yet!’” The teleprompter blanked out again just as Grace Glam was about to announce the nominees for Best New Starlet—but that didn’t dampen Brooklyn Lee’s excitement at winning it. “I feel like I’m dreaming right now, that this isn’t really happening,” the curvy brunette said. As has happened in previous years, the Performer of the Year winners were given special prizes, with ImLive.com this year donating a Tag Heuer watch to Manuel Ferrara and a pair of diamond earrings to Bobbi Starr. Also in the weird news department: When Asa Akira Is Insatiable 2 took the Best All-Sex Release award, its star revealed, “This movie was like the best experience of my life. My ex-boyfriend broke up with me over this movie, so yeah!”

BROOKLYN LEE Best New Starlet Brooklyn Lee made quite a splash in her first full year in porn. The Ohio native captured five AVN Awards in 2012, the most prominent of which was the highly coveted Best New Starlet trophy. Her high-profile feature roles combined with her sex performances and overall impact made her a fan favorite and critics’ darling. “The entire awards ceremony was completely overwhelming,” Lee said. “I kept asking myself ‘Is this really happening?’ It didn’t seem real.” Lee’s night got off to a rousing start when she bounded up on stage to accept her award for Best Oral Scene (along with Juelz Ventura). “I thought OK, perfect, I won the first award given out and I’m totally OK with just that. I wasn’t even expecting to win at all. It’s just an embarrassment of riches and I don’t quite know if I deserve it all, but I’ll take it! Thank you to everyone who enjoyed my movies and I’ll do my best to live up such high expectations. I’m extremely grateful.” (Photo: Stills By Alan)

ASA AKIRA Best Double-Penetration Scene Best Group Sex Scene Best Solo Sex Scene Best Tease Performance Best Three-Way Sex Scene, Boy/Boy/Girl Best Anal Sex Scene Take a look at the awards Asa Akira won and it’s easy to deduce that she could quite possibly be the most dynamic sexual performer in the adult biz. Hauling in the most individual trophies at this year’s AVN Awards, Asa is an indomitable force. The quickwitted Brooklyn, N.Y. native had the quote of the night at the awards show, saying “I’d like to thank my asshole for putting up with all my shenanigans,” as she accepted the award for Best Anal Sex Scene. "This was a obviously huge year for me! I (almost literally) worked my ass off all of 2011, and it feels indescribably rewarding to be recognized for my hard work by AVN,” she said.” Winning best DP scene and best anal scene two years in a row is something I will brag to my grandkids about! (Just kidding. Maybe.) I feel so lucky to have had a year like this past one in my lifetime. I grew so much as a sexual being, and also a human being in general, and I thank the fans above anyone else for allowing this to be possible. 2012 is looking promising so far, and I hope to continue sharing my crazy sexual exploits with the world!"

d

igital Playground’s Top Guns won the Best Selling and Renting Release, and Jesse Jane, accompanied by many of her fellow DP stars and staff, graciously accepted on behalf of the company. When Axel Braun’s Spiderman XXX: A Porn Parody took the trophy for Best Parody - Drama, Braun was effusive with his thanks, noting especially, “Xander Corvus right here, 20 minutes upside down getting a blowjob. It’s not an easy task but I tell you, this guy pulled it off.” Attell briefly thanked both his co-hostesses and this show’s trophy girls, Nicole Aniston and Brett Rossi, then introduced the next set of presenters, Charmane Star and Juelz Ventura—though an unannounced Evan Stone joined them, joking, “Does anyone have the feeling that if this microphone was shaped like a penis, the girls would get closer to it?” As previously noted, Rocki Horror took the Best Parody - Comedy award, with director Armstrong bringing the entire cast on stage to accept, and particularly thanking his star and wife, Jessica Drake, for sitting through three months of his constantly watching Rocky Horror Picture Show for inspiration.

JESSE JANE Best Supporting Actress.

Playing a girl from the wrong side of the tracks who takes up boxing to escape her less than idyllic home life, Jane turns in the standout performance of her star-studded career. “I’m very honored to win best supporting actress in Fighters,” Jane said. “I really wanted to win it because I worked so hard on this movie and had to change my real life for four months to learn to fight and put on the weight. This award means so much to me. Thanks to everyone for their support.”

From Spider-Man to his AVN Award-winning turn as Lt. Data in Sam Hain’s Star Trek: TNG parody, Corvus has stepped quickly into the spotlight as a leading man. The 23-year-old native of Colombus, Ohio, has always been an actor; he appeared on Nickelodeon before enterting the adult industry. “I’ve always enjoyed acting and losing myself in the character,” Corvus said. “It’s been a great year and I’m appreciative of all the awards. The best is yet to come.”

he show then took a break from presenting awards, and welcomed to the stage the rapper Too $hort, who belted out what he described as a special song for all the girls in porn, “Porno Bitch,” as well as his famous “Blow the Whistle,” while dozens of actresses joined him on stage to dance and tease. Then followed the third of the “Peggy Morehouse Porn School” skits, which featured several well-known actresses— among them Asa Akira, Kristina Rose, Chanel Preston, Kagney Linn Karter, Gracie Glam and others—”learning the porn ropes,” including how to lube up a giant teddy bear and stick it in Kristina’s ass. After presenting Bobbi Starr with her Female Performer of the Year award (and ImLive’s earrings), the Director of the Year award brought Axel Braun back into the limelight. “Oh my God! Really, AVN—really?” he mock-exclaimed. “Two years in a row? What the fuck?” He went on to send “happy thoughts and lots of positive energy” to his This Ain’t Ghostbusters star, Raven Alexis, who is gravely ill with cancer. The penultimate award, Best Feature, was snagged by Elegant Angel’s Portrait of a Call Girl, and director Graham Travis took the stage with his star, Jessie Andrews, to accept— and then promptly had to return to the stage when it was announced that the movie had also been voted the first “Movie of the Year,” beating out the top movies in such categories as Best Parody, Best Gonzo and Best All-Sex Release. Attell closed the show with a “shout-out to our troops,” as the audience began to file out, heading for the various official and unofficial afterparties that dotted the Las Vegas landscape.

“It’s always nice to have people tell you that you’re great, especially when you are a self-centered, egotistical megalomaniac with a God complex,” Axel Braun joked, “but winning the AVN Director of the Year award twice in a row was as humbling as standing naked next to Lexington Steele and being told your dick was bigger. I would lie if I said I expected to win, especially since I was nominated in the same category with incredibly talented folks like Robby D. and Brad Armstrong, but of course I am thrilled that I was once again recognized for barely sleeping, kissing my private life goodbye, and shooting 42 movies in a year.” About his award-winning Vivid release, Spider-Man XXX, Braun said it was “a project that I am immensely proud of, featuring gorgeous costumes, awesome special effects, and a 22-minute upside-down blow-job courtesy of the clinically insane Xander Corvus, who allowed me to talk him into it in exchange for a bag of Sun Chips. And I am such a huge fan of Elvis that when Dale DaBone won Best Actor for his portrayal of The King [in Elvis XXX), and I won for Best Music Soundtrack and Best Original Song, I felt as if “E” had looked down from heaven and asked Jesus to give me his approval in the form of a buttload of porn awards. Then I remembered that I’m an atheist, that Jesus most likely would not be into porn, and that Mr. Presley is apparently alive, or so thinks the crazed fan who left a death threat on my car when the movie came out. Oh, well. “It’s been quite an eventful year, and as I plunge back into another 12 months of compulsive smut peddling, I must honestly state that my awards really belong to my incredible team: my alter-ego Eli Cross, my PM extraordinaire Shylar Cobi, my amazing gaffer Shaun Rivera, and the rest of my precious crew. Nonetheless, I will hold on to the trophies.”

‘Portrait’ Painter Director Graham Travis talks about Portrait of a Call Girl, which won both Best Feature and Movie of the Year at the AVN Awards Show. “The history of the movie,” Graham Travis explained, “is that when I started at Elegant Angel in 2004, Patrick Collins, the owner, asked me if I’d like to direct a movie. Portrait of a Call Girl was the idea I came up with, but at the time I really wasn’t equipped technically to execute the idea. It was too ambitious, and I wanted to focus on my other responsibilities. In 2011 I had lunch with Andrew Sullivan from eline/Gamelink and he inspired me to pursue a more creative project. He had shot a movie around that general time and hearing how much it meant to him really resonated. I’d always wanted to make Portrait of a Call Girl and the time felt right. The Canon 5D camera made shooting in a cinematic style so affordable. The most important factor was Jessie Andrews. She had the style, intelligence, naturalism and acting ability to pull off a very difficult dramatic role. Casting the main character was the biggest hurdle to get over, and she made that possible. After that everything fell into place. “Making the movie was very rewarding,” Travis continued. “We were learning a lot throughout the experience so that was really cool, and we weren’t afraid to experiment. By the end of the project we’d grown a lot in our respective roles, and discovered a lot about the Canon 5D camera. Throughout, Jessie was giving this amazing performance. ... That really propelled us. The whole crew was very close and supportive so we all worked together and pushed each other to do better work. When we shot Jessie walking down the tunnel in downtown L.A. in her small black dress we were all so excited. There was just this collective commitment to work as long and as hard as was necessary to create something special. “We did feel like it was a bit of a risk shooting a feature at the company,” Travis revealed. “I was worried about it. We had shot Pornstar Superheroes the previous year, but that was much less of a departure than Portrait of a Call Girl. Elegant Angel is a gonzo company, and that will always be our focus. I personally really enjoy the creative outlet of writing and directing movies. We plan on making one or two features a year going forward, while ensuring that at all times we continue to deliver the high-quality hardcore gonzo movies that all of our customers and fans want.”

Rocki Beginning Brad Armstrong, who won Best Director - Parody for The Rocki Whore Picture Show: A Hardcore Parody, talks about the Wicked Pictures production, which won nine AVN Awards. “Last year was definitely the Year of Rocki,” Brad Armstrong explained. “I think it was a year and a half between conception of the movie and getting on stage to pick up the award, so it was a long-awaited moment. It was the first parody that Steve [Orenstein, Wicked’s owner] decided to take the plunge and go with a parody, so your first is always your favorite. We did have some trials and tribulations with that movie, and had to muck around with the lawyers to make it okay. It was mostly the music. We had actually tried to license the original music, but they came back to us with a no, and then we did our parody music and they felt it was still too close. We actually cut a separate version without the music, knowing it could have been an issue. ... I think that version is actually funnier than the one with the songs; we should have put that version on the BTS.” Asked about how he felt the night of the awards, Armstrong replied, “As great as I did, because a lot of the cast really put in a lot of time and effort, really honing their characters, and if there was anything that was a disappointment that night, it was some of them who got nominated but didn’t get the win. ... Really and truly, Mac Turner made the movie, so without him, I don’t know what I was thinking, saying I was going to do that movie before I found him. And both Randy and Alektra brought their game to the table, so if there was anything that was a little disappointing, it was some of the cast didn’t get recognized. I was sad for them for how much work they put into it.” Armstrong added that the win helped him move forward to his next big thing. “We certainly were very happy with how things turned out,” he said. “We were teetering on whether we were going to do Men In Black, but that was kind of the push over the edge.”

AVN Media Network and PornStarTweet.com joined forces to provide live photo coverage of the 2012 AVN Awards. The two companies processed and tweeted more than 800 photos seconds after the biggest stars in adult entertainment were photographed. Using a Facial Recognition API provided by Face.com, development 2 partner Joe Cabe and PornStarTweet.com created an application that processed more than 1,500 raw photos shot by adult industry photographer Rick Garcia during the two-and-a-half-hour AVN Awards Red Carpet, while industry vet Gerald Saunders assisted in confirmation of photos and training the application prior to and during the event and “Twitter correspondents” Tia Cyrus, BiBi Jones and Chanel Preston kept things lively. “This was truly the first time we’ve been able to interactively and nearly instantaneously process this quantity of photos,” said Pete Housley, CEO of PornStarTweet. “The results here were simply amazing—this is only the beginning for this technology.” 3

No.1

AEE’s new home at the Hard Rock is a hit with industry, fans

AEE WRAP-UP

with a Bullet (Vibe) t he Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) had made its home at the Sands Convention Center for 13 years, a venue it inherited from the Consumer Electronics Show when exhibitors were then part of that convention’s “adult section”—and so it was way past time for a change. Enter the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, the only convention space in town dedicated to a younger, entertainment-oriented crowd that could— and, more importantly, was willing to—deal with the sometimes raucous but highly attractive adult industry. And the long weekend of January 1822 proved to be a win-win for both the industry and the hotel. Of course, there were some differences that needed to be adjusted to: No more half-mile long walks down the corridor that separated the Venetian Hotel and Casino from the Sands Exhibit Halls A and B to prepare booths for the day’s crowds—and a mile round trip back to the Venetian for a decent lunch; no cavernous exhibit halls with 100-plus foot ceilings that somehow made everything under their I-beams look smaller and less significant; and for premium exhibitors, no boxy little rooms barely shielded from the exhibit hall’s noise in which to conduct business.

Instead, the Hard Rock offered actual conference rooms, well-appointed suites and even a penthouse where some of adult’s biggest players could hold meetings with individual clients or even groups to announce upcoming projects, roll out new product lines or simply sell existing titles and toys to buyers who’d flown in from around the world. Of course, the new venue did take some getting used to, and not a few got lost in the Hard Rock’s sometimes twisty corridors, which led to the three exhibit halls taken by AEE and its companion convention, the Adult Novelty Expo (ANE). But on the other hand, there was both a Starbucks and a convenience store only steps away from the main exhibit area, and reasonably priced restaurants weren’t much further, giving the conventions an intimate feel rarely experienced in the past. “It’s been great,” said Jerry E., CEO of Exquisite Multimedia and Juicy Entertainment as the convention was winding down. “I did a lot of business and didn’t have to deal with the craziness of the crowd and all that; it was good. I had a lot of meetings arranged, some by you guys and some that we did ourselves, and it was all good. I was in the suite most of the time; I went by our booth Saturday for a little bit, but it was really crowded so I just left.” The crowd at the booth was to be expected, thanks to Exquisite’s 15-foot tall backdrop featuring Chanel Preston in her red-and-gold bodice as the star of one of the company’s upcoming releases, Wonder Woman Interactive—and of course the several top stars signing autographs there, including Chanel, London Keyes, Charley Chase and others.

And what was Exquisite selling in the suite? “My customers all want my big comic parodies, and then we have our intimate furniture, the Tantra Lounge. It’s like an ottoman and a fuck couch all in one. We’ll be releasing also a wedge, a vaginal rejuvenation cream, so we’ve got all kinds of stuff coming. We’re going to be introducing some at the ExpoMark show in Hawaii [Feb. 26-March 1], and we’re going to be at the International Lingerie Show.” We also ran into Howard Levine of Exile Distribution in Exquisite’s suite, and he let it be known that the third volume of his popular Super Porn series will star Lily Carter, Skin Diamond, Holly Michaels and another hot actress who had yet to be determined. Hustler had one of the large conference rooms on the third floor of the Paradise Tower, but when they arrived, it had no tables and chairs, so salesman David Diamond had to take his first two meetings standing up—”but other than that, how did you like the play, Mrs. Lincoln?” “I think it’s been productive, it’s been steady,” he assessed. “It’s the third day and I still have my voice, which is good. I understand it’s the first time you’ve done this format, taken that kind of ExpoMark format, and I enjoy it. I can hear people, I can talk to them, I don’t have to scream at them; I can have a good conversation about what’s working for them and what’s not, so that’s good. It’s kind of mellow, and we’re seeing the same number of customers we always see, but it’s just a more relaxed atmosphere.” Production manager Drew Rosenfeld, who arrived Saturday, was also happy with the new venue. “I took the full tour and it’s a little different; it’s something that takes getting used to,” he opined. “But for us, since we have a business suite, David seems to be doing very well without having to deal with the noise and the crowds.” “We’re here to win some awards, keep the brand out there, making sure, more importantly, that David’s customers know we’re here,” he continued. “Really, it’s just so brand-new in this format, it’s taking some getting used to, but for us, down on the floor is not something we’re interested in this year.” For Rosenfeld, the companies on the exhibit floor seemed less friendly than in previous years. “Down on the floor seems to be very competitive,” he said. “Nobody’s going into anybody else’s booth, and it’s like there’s a line drawn between them, and there’s all that competition going on down there, whereas up 62 | AVN.com | 3.12

here [in the suite], everybody seems to be more friendly.” Rosenfeld also revealed some of Hustler Video’s plans for the coming year. “As we step into 2012 with production, we’re stepping away from parodies for a bit,” he said, though several Hustler parodies had been nominated for awards. “I think everyone else has stomped all over it so much that we’ve decided to go back to some roots. Barely Legal for sure—always Barely Legal—but some niche stuff. The internet is mainly where we’re focused and where we’re doing most of our business at the moment, so all the content we make, although it will be on DVD, certainly is going to shine much more on the internet side, so communicating with the internet is the key to what they want as we progress into this new year.” “We’re still doing 3D,” he added. “In fact this new title Jaws XXX 3D is one of our best ones yet. We’ve just had some great ideas when we made the movie. Of course, it’s a co-production with Adam & Eve, and that’s a big deal for us, and we’re looking at doing some more projects in the same format with them. It’s a good partnership and we had a lot of fun with those guys, and they bring a lot to the table as well. Two powerhouse studios definitely makes a difference on a project.” Another very busy spot was the DreamZone Entertainment/Tom Byron Pictures suite. Production manager Adam Hasner was quick to point out that he also represents Evolution Erotica, Pleasure Productions, Simon Wolf and Rosebud, which he said are all producing new content, though DreamZone and Tom Byron Pictures are the company’s main focus. “We’re doing phenomenal!” Hasner exclaimed. “I think we’re up to 25, maybe 30 nominations, for Tom Byron and DreamZone both. We’re also nominated for a bunch of stuff that Ivan does for us through Tom Byron Pictures, like This Is Why I’m Hot—very, very, very great.”

“We’re just going full steam ahead,” he stated. “A lot people are stopping production or slowing down but we’re not. We’re trying to come out with one big title every other month for DreamZone, to concentrate on the sales, get it out there. Romeo & Juliet is hitting streets February 7. We’re doing a big in-store display contest with all the stores, and it’s been really successful; everybody’s been really receptive, sending in pictures— they really want that free product when they win. We have posters, and we have Love or Lust coming out, which will follow Romeo & Juliet. Love or Lust, we do not have anything set yet; it’ll be out in March or April. Mork & Mindy just hit the streets; that title is very good, a great comedy we came out with. We also have some special boxed sets coming out. I’m making some ‘gift with purchase’ boxes: a toy with DVDs; it’s going to be a really nice box—10 discs per. Of course, we have our full catalog to offer—over 10,000 titles. We’re putting them into print and running specials all the time, so they can buy some great catalog at a really good price.” When we walked into the Devil’s Films/Goodfellas Productions suite, we saw something we wish we’d thought of before leaving L.A.: a small vaporizer constantly moistening the dry Vegas air. “Yeah, we’ve got this suite, which has been great for doing business,” said Steve Volponi. “It’s why I still have a voice today. I used to get sick a lot from being on the show floor, meeting people, shaking hands—but I love this suite. Boy, did I luck out! I’ve got a beautiful patio and lots of room inside—my vaporizer goes everywhere with me.” “So far it’s been positive, it’s been nice,” he continued. “We got to see some people that we wanted to see, and it seems the hotel is pretty receptive to us, which is nice. The last couple of years, I noticed the Venetian wasn’t so receptive to us hanging around. This might be a hipper place for us, and maybe it’ll be the place we need to be.”

Besides taking orders for his companies’ video lines, Volponi was also introducing retailers to the company’s new display units. “We’ve got some new catalog drops and some specials, grab-bags and stuff like that that we put together,” he said. “They work really well with the rack that we’re doing. It’s for impulse items and it can also hang on a slot wall, so that works. I’ve sold 30 in the past month and a half, and this is probably my sixth or seventh order of these things. We’ve gone through a lot of these. You can look at it on a flyer, that’s one thing, but when you see it in person and you kick it and it still stands, or you see it against the wall, it can be a great end-cap item. People always say, ‘I don’t have the room,’ but it’s just 14 inches on the floor, and we keep making new video packs to keep it filled.” Also well satisfied with its third-floor digs was West Coast Productions’ James Alexander. “This is the first time we’ve done this, and so far, so good,” Alexander said. “They’ve lined up all our appointments, and we have been booked all day long. We’re having some very exciting meetings. We’ve released a thousand movies over 16 years, so where’s the time gone? We’ve been nominated for 13 awards.” “We’re meeting some very interesting people and learning a lot about the state of the union, so to speak— which, frankly, is kind of discouraging. But we have a lot of great releases coming out for the 2012 year, and we’ve been able to share those releases with the people we’ve been meeting. We have Black Scary Movie coming out, directed by Bishop. They don’t make a lot of black scary movies in mainstream, so we were very excited to do that. And then we also have Showgirls in the works; we have an exclusive on Lavish Styles—this will be one of her first scenes working with a black guy. We have a very interesting interracial lesbian movie coming up with Lily Carter, Skin Diamond, Nyomi Banxxx, Dana DeArmond—it’s an all-star cast and we’re very exciting about that, about getting into the lesbian genre.” A couple of doors down was the Bang Bros. suite, and salesman Chris Clark thought he’d picked up on at least one subtlety of the ambiance. “The suite, I think, is calculated to intimidate,” he observed. “We have 30 chairs and our meetings are usually just two people. It’s set for an army but there are just two of us.” And was the intimidation factor leading to more sales? “We’re just trying to explore new ideas that we’re having with people right now,” he said. “We let them know we’re doing some more double discs. We’re flipping some of our older stuff into double discs, same price. We’re not doing boxed sets quite yet; maybe by the end of the year. But really, we’re just concentrating on the double discs, and moving anything that is 20 to 30 volumes, the first 10 will become double discs, Volume 1 & 2, Volume 3 & 4, so it’s a ‘Bang Bros. Classics’ idea.” “We have two or three great MILF lines,” he continued, noting that Back Door MILF and MILF Soup had both been nominated for AVN’s Best MILF Series award. “Monsters of Cock, Diesel Dongs are doing very well. Fuck Team 5, some very pro-am stuff, that’s doing very well for us. Bang Bus, as usual, that’s our flagship. We’re going to be coming out with three new [series] titles this year: Porn Star Spa, Party of Three, which is three girls, and then also Bang Girls Tryouts, which is a new amateur line. We keep it fresh. Last year, we came

out with three new titles; this year we’re coming out with three new titles, so it’s great. Everybody wants the new stuff, new releases are doing well, and then you have a big break between that and the old stuff, and there’s really no in-between there. You’re either doing really well with the new stuff or you’re doing well with the old stuff.” Between Bang Bros. and WCP was the Adult Trading Card Company’s conference room, where the company displayed both its retail series and its limited-edition series. “The retail series has a mixture of different girls— porn girls, cam girls, regular models—who have agreed to be on the cards,” explained sales manager Eric Hanna. “There’s no nudity but there’s implied nudity; they have the hair covering it so it’s all non-nudity, so that’s why we can sell them at the 7-Elevens. So basically, they’re like the trading cards you had as a kid; they have the look and feel of a trading card versus an 8x10 photo. With these, you can put them in your pocket, versus the 8x10 where they kind of have to hide it from their wives. I pick out all the outfits for the girls and organize all the photo shoots.” “Then we have the limited-edition cards, which the girls purchase for themselves and sell to their fans at conventions, and you’ll notice they have nudity,” he continued. “They don’t come as a set; the girls purchase them, and we create the cards for them, and they sell them. Some of our girls include Debi Diamond, Andy San Dimas, Katie Jordin, Sophie Dee, Lizz Tayler, Nikki Delano ... We have 150 girls, and if you go to AdultTradingCardCompany.com, you’ll see all the limited-edition cards we’ve done. These [in the display] are here to show the poses and lighting effects. We also have a feature on us coming up in Hustler, and we’re in this month’s AVN, and we’ve been nominated for an award for Best Party, Game or Gag Product.” [ATCC ended up winning in the category at the 2012 AVN Awards Show.] Any chance of finding out who’ll be featured on cards in the future? “Our plans are to get worldwide distribution for our Series 1 retail packs,” said company owner J.P. Berkman. “We’re in the process of shooting our Series 2 trading card packs and finishing those up as well. In that series will be Katie Jordin, Julie Cash, a new girl named Lola Foxx, Maddy O’Reilly, Madelyn Monroe, and that’s all I’m going to say.” As interesting as the suites were, the bulk of the traffic at AEE was in the main video exhibit hall, where the major studios drew crowds with the enticement of meeting some of porn’s biggest stars. The Jules Jordan Video booth was a dominant force, featuring two sure-fire draws—Kristina Rose and Alexis Texas—as well as exciting newcomers Abella Anderson and Riley Reid (for more on Reid, see page 26). Over at the Evil Angel exhibit, which was adorned with posters for Voracious—John Stagliano’s return to feature movie-making (see page 30)—Belladonna, Bobbi Starr, Brooklyn Lee and Lea Lexis mingled with retailers, fans and journalists alike. (Starr and Lee were later to win, respectively, Performer of the Year and Best New Starlet honors at the 2012 AVN Awards.) Elegant Angel Productions also went big for AEE, featuring backdrops with much-larger-than-life photographs of the stars assembled at the booth: Jessie

Andrews, Asa Akira, Lily Carter, Skin Diamond, Gracie Glam, Kagney Linn Karter and Holly Michaels. Wicked Pictures had premium space in a penthouse suite and its contract stars—Alektra Blue, Stormy Daniels, Jessica Drake and Kaylani Lei—were also much in evidence, particularly at the Fan Fest, which was held Friday and Saturday in The Joint. The company also hosted official parties during the week, including a bash at Gallery with all the Wicked Girls. Vivid Entertainment also participated heavily on the party circuit, sponsoring a party for Vivid Vodka at the Crazy Horse III and an awards-night afterparty at Vanity nightclub. The rest of the week, fans ensured that Vivid stars Sunny Leone, Capri Anderson and Allie Haze kept busy on the show floor. Adam & Eve made its presence felt in the business suites, aggressively promoting The Four, director Michael Ninn’s epic swan song. A four-disc set with over eight hours of footage and 14 hardcore sex scenes, The Four is featured in a four-panel slipcase—an attractive package for retailers. “This movie is just tremendous. It’s one of the biggest movies in the history of adult entertainment,” Adam & Eve General Manager Bob Christian said. “We’re glad to be able to distribute it. It’s a movie retailers have been waiting for for a number of years and it doesn’t disappoint. This is something fans will want to own.” At the AEBN booth, fans could meet many top stars, including Lexi Belle, Kirsten Price, Misty Stone and Tasha Reign. But the real show stopper on display was the latest haptic technology from RealTouch: a “teledildonics” device that can be used in live camera feeds to simulate sex with a partner—be it a live cam model or even a long-distance lover. The Brazzers booth boasted a top lineup as well, including Lisa Ann, Phoenix Marie, Sienna West and Emily Addison. The Digital Playground contract stars were out in force in the hallway outside The Joint. As usual, Jesse Jane, BiBi Jones, Kayden Kross, Selena Rose, Riley Steele and Stoya

were media magnets, surrounded by camera-wielding photographers and fans alike. But one of the biggest players also had one of the smallest booths: HotMovies.com. “The booth is doing good,” said staffer Mark as the show was just beginning to get under way. “We went small this year because we weren’t sure what the show was going to be like, so we figured we’d scale back. Last year was pretty big, and if the show turns out to be big this year, we’ll scale back up again next year. We always do well. The consumers like the product.” And what do they like most? “Currently it’s Girlfriends Films,” he said. “They’re doing really well, phenomenal. They always pretty much consume our Top 10 list, and they have a great product, the production values are top-notch. It’s interesting content to watch.” Speaking of Girlfriends Films, which has been exhibiting at the Vegas show since the ’90s, before AEE split off from the Consumer Electronics Show, we caught up with owner Dan O’Connell on the convention’s opening “trade only” day, as reporters and news crews were vying for the attention of top contract stars India Summer and Prinzzess. “Yeah, it’s been busy,” O’Connell agreed. “I’ve never had media attention like we’ve had this year. I’ve always said, when we come to the AEE show every year, we’re a little bit bigger and more important, apparently, than I thought we were, so it ratchets up even without me watching, and I’ve come to realize that, ‘My God, I’ve just had a string of people interviewing me today,’ so it’s very flattering.” O’Connell said he isn’t promoting any particular Girlfriends titles here at the convention ... but he does have favorites, and he doesn’t mind talking about them at length. “I like our new Lesbian Sex line, which is basically, we get two girls who are off-set friends and who are articulate to talk about sex or some particular aspect of sex like breasts or orgasms or something for a half hour; then they go and have sex; there’s no pretense of a storyline,” he detailed. “And I like our Please Make Me Lesbian series because it’s sort of a film noir dark type of thing, and Zoe Holloway and Lily Carter do a great job of holding that one down, turning ordinary women into lesbians. I also really like Pin-Ups.” We caught up with New Sensations head Scott Taylor in the AVN Novelty Expo space, where he and his staff were juggling inquiries about their newly expanded pleasure product line (for more, see page XXX). Taylor also waxed enthusiastic about a new line of romance titles being released through Digital Sin in either late March or April (read lots more about that bit of good news in next month’s issue). New exhibitors were also a big part of the excitement at AEE. “This is our first time at the Expo,” noted Samy’s Camera salesman Louis Feldman. “I’d like to network with some of the companies that don’t know Samy’s Camera and possibly do business with them. We’ve met with Girlfriends Films, we’ve met with Digital Playground, and they’ve been very receptive, and we’ll be visiting Vivid in their suite on the second floor once the person we need to talk to gets here.” We saw several pieces of equipment on display at the Samy’s booth, including top-end camcorders, monitors and editing equipment—just about anything a video or internet production company could need. “Well, we’ve got whatever they’re looking for,” Feldman confirmed. “Some of them want better webcams and updated equipment, and we’d love to do business with them because we are full service, rentals and sales—in fact, we have the biggest rental department on the West Coast—and we

would have everything they need to make a production, and we carry house accounts and we’d love to do business with these guys.” The lone 3D exhibitor was a relatively new company, Blue City Pictures, helmed by company owner Eddie. “I’ve been producing action sports shows for about 10 years,” he said. “I’ve been shooting 3D for about two years, mainly in action sports, and then came into adult. Blue City Pictures was launched about nine months ago. Basically, we were shooting some 3D adult stuff, and we were contacted by Hustler, which was interested since they were launching a 3D platform, so basically, we signed a contract with them to do two films a month, and then that goes international and domestic, and that’s how it started.” The Blue City booth had several TV displays, some showing 3D that could be seen with the red/blue anaglyph glasses and one that worked with active glasses. “We have 16 titles that are available right now on DVD, and we just got a distributor this morning for our 3D sideby-side Blu-rays,” Eddie stated. “The website should be launched in the next five days, and it has all types of 3D. So you can watch it in anaglyph if you don’t have the active glasses, or you can watch it on the iPad. All the stuff online, we have encoded specifically for your device. So we have 3D mobile for the mobile HTC camera phone, and you can also download directly to your thumb drive and plug it into a 3D TV, or you can watch it in 2D.” “The plans are to really push 3D on multiple platforms, and to drive traffic to the website, and just kind of get the awareness out that 3D really has changed,” he added. “It’s not your parents’ 3D anymore; it’s full 1080i just like when you go to the movie theater. We’re pushing the awareness and pushing it to a mainstream level.” Also new to AEE—and new to the adult scene—was Magik View Entertainment. In business only since 2011, the European company started off with a big splash. “We are very happy to have participated at the AVN show,” said Ettore Buchi, director of the award-winning Mission Asspossible. “It has introduced the MagikView Entertainment brand and our premium-quality content to the North American market. After triumphing in Europe at the Venus Awards last year, and now winning three key categories at the AVN Awards, we look forward to growing our business in North America.” Far from being newcomers were video arcade booth manufacturers Video Simplex and Videotel—mainstays of AEE, and even the CES adult section before that. Videotel had a booth in the AVN Novelty Expo hall, where the father-son team of Norbert and Mark Schneider talked about Videotel to clients, with Mark spending a good amount of time at sister company Elator (for more on that, see the ANE coverage). Video Simplex was in the AEE hall, where we caught up with Video Simplex’s Joe Ward, who was busy demonstrating the company’s new “tile player” booth screen. “With our tile player, when they’re watching a movie, especially with the porn content, now they get the whole movie, so it’s the beginning of the movie all the way to the end, showing up as individual tiles,” Ward explained. “So instead of the old fast-forward and rewind, you can just choose your scene from the window. You use a little arrow to choose your tile, and then you can start the movie from there, and you can then fast-forward or rewind 1, 2, 8, 16, 32x, so the guys are spending more time in the booth.

With the new preview booths, we use Blu-ray players that are connected to the internet, so the booth can switch over to preview and they have full remote control; they can go to all the interactive content that’s available in the Blu-rays.” We asked how booth sales were doing, considering that several large municipalities have passed laws limiting where the booths can be placed. “I think the arcade systems are still a good money generator,” Ward stated. “The clientele that are coming to the bookstores, the internet’s taken away some of it, but the clientele that were going to the bookstores are still going to the bookstores. They like the ambiance, shall we say, of actually going back in the booths. ... The regulation, depending on the city or state that you’re in, those things kind of come and go, so we see a lot of people that have existing licenses in bookstores, it’s about that time where they’ve got a 15-year-old system and they’re upgrading and cleaning it up and bringing it up to spec. But they still make great money, and if you’ve got a bookstore, it’s a nobrainer to have them in the back; it’s free money.” DCW & Associates Investigations & Research—a nationwide investigations and research organization that specializes in surveillance, counterfeit investigations, background checks and corporate due diligence research—was at the show, offering executive protection to celebrity entertainers, security assessment checks of residences and businesses, and assistance with stalking cases against performers. DCW’s David C. Williams expressed satisfaction with the new format of AEE, noting that it exceeded his expectations. “This show is great for making industry contacts and is the only show for us industry professionals to share experiences for the betterment of all. And of course it’s always fun to party with colleagues and fans alike in Vegas!” We also ran across unexpected exhibitors, including Air Force Amy, formerly at Dennis Hof’s Moonlite Bunnyranch, the backdrop for HBO’s Cathouse. “The new venture for Air Force Amy at AVN 2012 is, I’m officially announcing my retirement from the Nevada legal brothel system that I worked in for 21 years,” Amy

Talent Show The big agencies brought models to AEE, including OC Modeling (above, Cherie DeVille, Sandra McCarthy, Victoria Rae Black, Dani Daniels) and Spiegler Girls (Leilani Leeane, Chastity Lynn, Kara Price, Sarah Shevon). told us. “So I’m here looking for endorsements and product lines, and branching out and not going to do porn or filming; I’m doing more mainstream, running off my popularity with Penthouse for 10 years. ... HBO made a lot of money off my name for 10 years, and I’m retired; I’m trying to make some money off my name too.” “The truth is, I’ve been bombarded with offers,” she said. “I was really beginning to think I’d made a mistake spending money on this booth; I was really scared to come, But I’ve had so many offers; a lot of stuff has dropped in my lap. I could cry, I’ve had so many offers right now. I’m really excited.” Photos of AEE by Hew Burney, JFK of Fubar Webmasters, and Rick Garcia, Glenn Francis and Lee Austin of EMM Report.

Virtual Exposure Watching AEE online provides show access without sore feet and ‘convention throat’ This year, fans had an entirely new way to interact with adult stars attending the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo. Instead of traveling to Las Vegas to attend the 2012 AEE, which took place in January at the Hard Rock Hotel, the curious could opt instead for a virtual experience and for $19.99 they would gain access to hours of content shot at AEE by the Virtual AVN crew. More than 35 hours of live video streaming was shot, with the footage replaying on demand. Some segments were broadcast from the exhibit floor, while others took place in AVN’s Virtual Penthouse Suite Studio at the Hard Rock Hotel. It’s not the same as walking everywhere on one’s own, but it’s also not getting lost, tripping on the carpet, or getting stuck behind the fan who cannot comprehend that there are other humans trying to see people, get places and fondle things. Hosts included performers Jessica Drake (pictured) and Evan Stone, the latter of whom seems to have an agreement with feature production companies to appear in at least half of all titles. Joining the luckiest man in porn was Mr. Skin himself, Jim McBride. Action and interviews on the trade show floor and elsewhere had their own hosts, because even Jessica Drake and Evan Stone can’t be everywhere. Executive producer Bob Snyder of Virtual FanFests mulled over how the virtual show was received. “Our number-one goal and our toughest challenge in year one was to deliver a combination of brand-new technology and unique

content that was not only evolutionary for the AVN-AEE, but one that provided the entire industry a new conduit to consumers. We were thankfully able to do that, in large part because of the extraordinary teamwork of a 38-person production crew. Our capability, and thus our growth potential, probably did exceed my expectations and was always paramount to viewership, which will naturally grow as the concept grows. “The ‘sign-ups’ are a function of live attendees as well as on-demand viewership that will accrue for months,” Snyder added, “so our focus with respect to 2012’s production is now on editing the Best of AVN Virtual 2012, which should be available within a few weeks.” Synder is already thinking ahead to 2013. “Going forward, we’ll look toward AVN and some of the industry titans to determine the value of what we’ve now accomplished and for one or more of those parties to fuel our ability to deliver an even stronger product in 2013 and beyond,” he said. There’s no question that the Virtual Adult Entertainment Expo is not the same thing as the Meat World Adult Entertainment Expo, but until there are flying cars and teleporters, there’s streaming video of Jessica Drake in a tight, short and sparkly, off-the-shoulder dress talking about Randy Spears’ willingness to emerge from retirement to appear in her educational series. All that and no long lines into the bathroom or the showroom floor.

This Joint Is Jumpin’ The 2012 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo packed in the stars—and the fans—at The Joint for the convention’s first-ever Fan Fest. This time there were no rock stars in sight, only well over 100 of adult’s biggest stars spread throughout the 33,750-square-foot venue. The Joint, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s concert venue, was packed to the rafters—literally—during the fest’s two days, and the glittery jewel box of a venue represented a stunning new look for the expo. Gone were the imposing, monolithic booths that dominated the show floor in years past, in favor of a sleeker, more clubby vibe. The Fan Fest was a more intimate affair to be sure, allowing fans more access to their favorite stars. And boy, were there stars! Literally every square foot of The Joint shined with fine female flesh. Not only was the Fan Fest home to the multitude of stars signing, it also hosted numerous stage shows like the Best New Starlet Q & A hosted by Stormy Daniels, and Inside the Porn Actors Studio featuring the Wicked Girls. 68 | AVN.com | 3.12

Internext Big Thing Move to Hard Rock Hotel invigorates the decade-old webmaster event

i

nternext’s move to the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino appears to been the right decision by trade show organizers. The Paradise Tower facilities

pretty much belonged to AVN’s adult webmaster event, and the response by attendees to the new digs and the (mostly) smooth running of the event was nothing if not enthusiastic. Attendance was extremely robust, seminars were packed and engaged, and networking and marketing events that have already taken place have been bustling and productive. The slightly unorthodox scheduling this year also paid off. The show started Sunday with a half-day of events that included the X2K Golf Tournament, the YNOT Grand Prix and the opening-night party at the Hustler Club, sponsored by BrokerBabe, EroAdvertising and UpForIt. But the day also included a three-hour Meet Market, an event that

INTERNEXT WRAP-UP

traditionally takes place later during a show. Putting the first version of Meet Market (another took place Monday) at the beginning of the three-day event was noticeably appreciated as a great way to bring people together.

Another modification was starting the educational schedule later in the day, leaving the morning hours for meetings and Speed Networking, which attracted so many people that an overflow room needed to be added. On Monday, in between Speed Networking and the first seminar at 2 p.m., a shorter Meet Market took place that was even busier that the first, after which the four-hour, two-track schedule of seminars kicked off. The first two seminars were What to Do With Your Mobile Traffic and Big Tubes, Big Traffic, Big Profits, each of which was packed. The mobile panel, moderated by Christian Kreul of AdXpansion, featured a conversation dominated by questions about making money in other countries, including the necessity to strip down content and maximize speed in delivery for mobile users, and a lively discussion about SMS billing vs. credit cards that stressed the essential need for this type of billing outside of the United States. The speakers argued that conversion rates are so much higher for SMS billing, it offsets the big bite mobile carriers take out of the revenue stream. The hour offered a great many other insights into a burgeoning mobile marketplace so ripe for adult exploitation, with a general consensus among the expert panelists that that expense and effort needed to enter new markets also serves as a barrier to entry for competitors, allowing determined entrepreneurs the freedom to operate with less competition.

The Tube seminar, moderated by JT of DreamStarCash, offered the packed room a vision of tube sites as consumer-friendly contentdelivery and marketing platforms that continue to evolve past their initial problematic ways to a more legitimate and inclusive way of doing business. Each of the panelists offered explicit suggestions on how to work productively with tubes to gain more sales and drive traffic to adult websites, but as always, some questions from the audience revealed strong residues of resistance to a model that has had such a problematic history in the adult entertainment industry in particular. The second hour of seminars featured the State of the Industry panel and a special presentation on Protecting Your Online Brand: Trademarks, Licenses and Affiliate Agreements prepared and presented by industry attorneys Larry Walters and Corey Silverstein. The latter offered detailed information on protective measures webmasters can take to secure their trademarks and service marks, invaluable information at a time when ICANN is considering the rollout of hundreds if not thousands of new TLDs, and webmasters are already trying to figure out how to protect their brands in the aftermath of the launch of .XXX.

The new TLD was also a subject of discussion on the State of the Industry panel, which was moderated by Wasteland’s Colin Rowntree and featured CommerceGate’s Bjorn Skarlen, Evil Angel’s Christian Mann, Hustler’s Michael Klein, Dating Gold’s Allan Henning and Theo Sapoutzis of AVN. It would be fair to say that the majority of panelists took an extremely dim view of not only the TLD’s underlying business model but also the manner in which the registry running it had engaged with them in negotiations and conversations over the past year. The hourlong discussion also covered the now-dead SOPA legislation, piracy in general and the recent move by the Los Angeles City Council to impose mandatory condom usage on adult productions. The day’s four remaining seminars—AdultCentro Market, Power Billing, Hosting Porn on a Cloud and State of Piracy—each featured enthusiastic panelists and audiences engaged in spirited and targeted discussions of the salient topics of the day, and in one case a highly effective demonstration of content delivery (courtesy of the fertile mind of Colin Rowntree) fea-

Thylmann Speaks

In his Internext keynote speech, the Manwin mogul worked hard to put the industry at ease regarding his intentions

If he had accomplished nothing else during his

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

ases

Keynote of the Year address January 14 at Internext 2012, Manwin principal Fabian Thylmann succeeded in setting a record that will probably last a very long time. Of all the keynote addresses that have ever taken place at an adult convention, this one was the most attended, boasting somewhere between 600-800 people gathered at The Joint in the Hard Rock to hear the 33-year-old talk a little bit about himself and a lot about his ridiculously successful company, which only the day before had officially announced the latest in a series of high-profile acquisitions—this time, the purchase of Digital Playground. But Thylmann, who is German and whose English is very good, did accomplish more than just break an attendance record during the hour-long keynote. Rather than play it safe, he addressed head on many of the rumors that people have been talking about ever since he consummated the deal of the century in March 2010 by purchasing Montreal-based Mansef, a company that had grown by leaps and bounds but which was still reviled by many in the industry for operating massively trafficked tube sites supported by unheard of amounts of stolen content. Introduced by AVN chief executive Theo Sapoutzis, Thylmann came dressed down, wearing a Manwin sweatshirt over a T-shirt. He seated himself perched on a table downstage with a laptop available but preferring to speak extemporaneously in the confident manner of any young CEO of a fabulously rich company. The effect was immediate. The intent here was to present not an intimidating figure but someone approachable and human. Thylmann spoke about his history in the business, starting in 1998 when as a young programmer/entrepreneur at the peachfuzz age of 18 he founded a stat service that was bought years later by Streamate. He did not stay for long, leaving to do freelance coding. He started other companies, too, but said he made lots of mistakes, as all people do when they start out. “In 2001-2, I started to work with John Albright, which some of you may know as the owner of Too Much Media, the people that make NATS [affiliate software],” he said, and then told a brief story about the original inspiration for NATS, noting that the name came from his industry moniker, Nathan—i.e., Nathan’s Affiliate Traffic Software, or NATS. Who knew? But that gig also lasted only a few years, after which he sold his stake in the company and left to start consumercentric websites in adult in Europe, before he felt ready to move back into the U.S. market. At the beginning of 2009, he approached the owners of PornHub, which was owned by Mansef, to see if they were interested in selling the notorious tube site. “I wanted to buy PornHub because I thought that starting in the U.S. with two things I didn’t have—traffic and a site that sells—was going to be hard, so if I had one of the two, it would be easier.” Not knowing him very well, however, the Mansef people did not want to sell and the deal fell apart, but in 80 | AVN.com | 3.12

October 2009 he spoke with the owners again and by that time they were not only ready to sell the one site but all of their properties, including Brazzers and MoFos. Negotiations continued through the end of the year. Thylmann also explained in somewhat greater detail than anyone might have expected the financial structure of the deal to purchase Mansef. It should be noted that the specificity with which Thylmann recounted his negotiations and purchase of Mansef, was intended to squash once and for all the rumor that he is just a front man for the company. After Thylmann concluded the personal history part of his talk, he spoke about the trends in the industry that inspired him to envision the company that would become Manwin and the reasons why tube sites in particular began to attract so much traffic. Indeed, this part of the keynote seemed dedicated to putting the industry at ease regarding Manwin’s intentions and ambitions, not only with respect to affiliate sales but content protection and production as well, and also the ever-present state of piracy. “Competition in the market is very important and helps innovation,” he said. “Without competition there is no [innovation] anymore. And I think I’ve shown over the past few months that after I bought the tube sites that I actually do want to make them the way they should be.” As additional proof of his good intentions, he added that right after buying Mansef he set up meetings with one of the more powerful intellectual property law firms in the country so that he and his team could learn more about the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). He also began to change the underlying business model of

the tube sites acquired from Mansef to make them more DMCA-compliant. He added, however, that he was not able to change them over as quickly as some (or he) would have liked, explaining that doing so would have driven too many of the site’s surfers to tubes that don’t care about the industry. Doing so slowly still resulted in a decrease in the Alexa ratings of his sites, but the end result was the survival of the sites and a user base that actually converts into paying customers. On the production side of things, Thylmann said that even though Manwin shoots all content for the internet, he “still believes in premium products,” and pointed to the purchase of Digital Playground as an example of that interest, as well as the Playboy deal, which he said was instigated by Playboy shortly after his purchase of Mansef ’s assets. They only wanted to sell their online properties, he added, but he was more interested in the TV channels, which they were at first resistant to part with. It took two years, he said, to change their minds. During the remainder of the keynote, Thylmann spoke in greater detail about the underlying business philosophy of the company and how well it treats its 902 employees spread across six countries, but the most important elements of the speech had been delivered. Thylmann had come to defuse the many theories swirling around him and Manwin and to put the industry at ease regarding its intentions. Talking briefly with people afterwards, most were impressed with Thylmann’s performance and expressed a positive impression. Considering the vitriol delivered toward Manwin and its CEO over the past many months, it seems Thylmann met his goal. For a longer report on the speech, go to bit.ly/zwhYEY.

Show Starters Trade-only AVN Novelty Expo finds a new home at Hard Rock Hotel

ANE WRAP-UP

“NEW”

is always a word that comes up when reporting on the AVN Novelty Expo—but it’s usually deployed to describe the products brought by the trade show’s exhibitors. This year, the word can be applied to virtually every aspect of the show: new dates, a new venue, and a new format. And, of course, there were still plenty of new toys showcased—many by first-time exhibitors. Foremost was the change of venue. Along with the Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) and the AVN Awards Show, the AVN Novelty Show took up residence at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The move benefited ANE exhibitors in several ways. The long treks through the sprawling Venetian Hotel to the Sands Convention Center and the carnival atmosphere of AEE had been impediments for the B2B-only novelty exhibitors. The more compact layout of the Hard Rock made it easy for exhibitors to set up, and for buyers to make the rounds. In comparison to the Venetian, rooms at the Hard Rock were less costly—which meant that more attendees were able to stay on site, and thereby save even more time, energy and money by avoiding the daily transportation expense (and hassles) of getting to the Sands. And with so many attendees at the hotel 24/7, networking was a breeze. From the line at Starbucks in the morning to the last nightcap at one of the hotel bars, one could expect to see a familiar face.

Pleasure product exhibitors could be found in all four exhibit areas, though only two of these were specific to ANE’s trade-only exhibitors. The Artist Hall featured a mix of ANE veterans—njoy, Aneros, A.L. Enterprises, Eldorado Trading Company—with many first-time advertisers. The Festival Hall, in the Paradise Tower, became the International Hall, populated by manufacturers from Asia and Europe. And many others opted for booth space in the Muse Hall, the main exhibit space for AEE, and The Joint, both of which were open to consumer attendees as well. By the end of the show, almost every exhibitor had expressed satisfaction with everything from foot traffic to orders to contacts made during the show. Several repeat exhibitors gave enthusiastic thumbs up. Hansen Hwang of Mercy Media explained the importance of the show to his company, which manufactures the Fairy line of wand-style vibrators. “The January ANE show easily ranks as one of two that are a ‘must do’ for us every year and this year was no different,” Hwang said. “From the line that formed at our booth (a first!) to our current clients who came by to say hello, we were continuously introducing our product line (an AVN Award nominee—also a first!) to interested buyers, writing up new sales orders, or meeting very cool people. “The ANE in January is our company’s kick-off show for the year, and we look forward to a bigger and better one next year!” he added. Marcus West, marketing director at Evolved Novelties, echoed those sentiments. “AEE is one of the most important trade shows of our year. It was a great place to launch our 2012 Shots and Touché lines as well as introduce our Zero Tolerance Toys lines for men,” West said. “We love the chance to interact with our clients in person, and it’s always an advantage to get that view of the industry as a whole just by walking through the showroom floor.” Zero Tolerance wasn’t the only adult studio exhibiting its new pleasure products. NS Novelties—the novelty division of New Sensations—made a big splash with the release of several new lines and products, the first major release of product since its initial launch last year.

“This has all been a seven-month process of getting out design, molds, products and more,” said company owner Scott Taylor. “Lavi [Yedid], who came to us from Doc Johnson, has made the world of difference for me and getting out these products.” Next door to NS Novelties was the Icon Brands booth. “We were really pleased with the turnout and number of key buyers we were able to meet with. It was great for writing orders and creating new strategic partnerships,” said Joanie Lee, Icon’s vice president of sales. “We look forward to next year’s show, and expect it to be even stronger.” Wicked Pictures also has taken the plunge into pleasure products. The adult studio launched the Wicked Sensual Care Collection, which are intimate lubricants that will be available in the spring of 2012. The exclusive formulas use the highest quality ingredients crafted to enhance intimate adventures. Founder Steven Orenstein and other company representatives gave a sneak preview to the curious in Wicked’s penthouse suite—a backdrop as elegant as the new line’s packaging. As envisioned by director of product develop-

ment Carrie Smith, the line resembles a high-end cosmetic brand, evoking Chanel or MAC with its streamlined white type on black backgrounds. Distribution powerhouse Eldorado had a major presence at the show, meeting with clients and searching out new lines and products to carry for its retail customers. “This show has been a great success for us,” company head Larry Garland said. Gaining a lot of attention is the company’s StorExtender program, which is a subscription-based service that provides a customized website for e-tailers and handles everything from fraud check to drop-shipping to hosting the website to maintaining it, he said. He noted that buyers were showing interest in several lines carried by his company, including LELO, Kama Sutra, Dreamgirl and more. Distribution company Nalpac was also on the scene. Sales rep Tracy Tinsley was at the Papaya Toys booth, with Pamela McKee, aka Papaya Pam, talking to buyers about the line of high-quality silicone vibrators, which Nalpac distributes. And Nalpac’s senior page 88

Aneros The longtime ANE exhibitor showed off an item from its upcoming Syn Series. Company rep Malay said the Helix is a red anal probe with a silky soft black silicone overlay. The line is expected to ship this month.

Back Alley Exhibiting on the AEE side to bring consumer attention to its T-shirts decorated with graphics that evoke the 1950s feel was Back Alley. Company owner Matt pointed out that the shirts are cut and designed to appeal to women: “We say they are flattering yet forgiving.”

CB-6000 Owner Nikki Yates said that the company, which makes cock cages in a variety of styles and sizes, uses trade shows such as ANE to educate retailers and distributors on the popular products. “Some aren’t even aware that a product like this exists,” she said. “We have been in business for 13 years and some people still think we are the new kid on the block.”

DildoOfTheDay.com At his booth, said DildoOfTheDay.com owner Adam, staffers were doing giveaways for fans. Adam explained that his e-commerce site is similar to Groupon or Woot.com, but for the adult novelty industry. “We have no content, nothing streaming, no DVDs,” he said. “Every 24 hours we put a deal up that offers a great product up to 50 percent off retail prices, and it stays there for 24 hours or until it sells out.”

Dr. Clockwork Introduced at the show was Dr. Clockwork’s Violet Wand set, which retails for under $200. The key is the fact that it’s a solid state violet wand that is electrical versus mechanical, explained Dr. Clockwork. The piece has an indefinite run time, is lighter than a traditional violet wand and the attachments are compatible with other systems, allowing a user to upgrade to a traditional violet wand without much added expense.

After experiencing success in the mainstream world of spas, said company official Maggie, these enhancement products are being launched in the adult industry. The Anal Brightening System and Coco Lube are both all-natural products, she said. The brightening cream contains no hydroquinone, which can be harsh on skin, and is safe for application to all sensitive areas. The Coco Lube is an edible lubricant that is coconut-oil based, making it ideal for massage as well since it melts at body temperature.

The Elator Demonstration videos were available to show the workings of the latest version of the Elator, which helps with erectile dysfunction issues. Previously, said owner and inventor Mark Schneider, the Elator was only available as a customized device, with consumers providing measurements for the right fit, Now, there are medium, large and extra-large sizes that allow retailers to carry the device while still providing most men with a comfortable fit.

Eldorado Trading Company In addition to spreading the word on Eldorado’s StorExtender program, 2012 Hall of Fame inductee Larry Garland had plenty of new items to show buyers: Spartacus’ Blown line, Sex & Mischief items from Sportsheets, and Trojan’s new Midnight Collection line.

Erotic Beverages New to ANE, Erotic Beverages served up a pair of energy drinks for men and women. Big Cock and Little Pussy come in two flavors—cola and passion fruit—and are infused with B6 and B12. “There’s nothing harmful in the drinks, so they can be mixed with alcohol,” said Kevin, a representative with the company. “They have no nasty aftertaste from ginseng.”

Eruption XL This company’s male enhancement pill allows users to last longer in bed, explained company chemist Jamitta. “It is formulated to help men maintain their erection and stay firm even after ejaculation,” she said, adding the effects can last up to three days.

Everyday Health Company rep Guy noted this manufacturer and exporter of supplements and enhancements offers the Deluxion and the Deluxion 2 Go, which are topical delay creams that contain no lidocaine or benzocaine, but do feature a pantent-pending blend of ingredients. The Zloa Honey is a consumable that claims to stimulate the circulatory system of men and women.

Evolved Novelties

ANE WRAP-UP

Team members were on hand to showcase the Zero Tolerance Toys line, with products geared toward fans of the company’s adult DVD fare. Among the highlights is the Talk Dirty To Me product, which is an audio CD featuring Bree Olson and Sasha Grey. “We had people asking us for these CDs, so we used the audio from their interactive CDs, so the girls are talking directly to the listener,” explained Lucy Vonne of Evolved Novelties. Also displayed at the show were the Jack ’N Drive, a kit for roadside masturbation, and the Fellatio Kit, which includes products for giving and getting oral. The company’s popular Glory Holes kits have new “softer” packaging that still features all of the Zero Tolerance movies’ stars, and the new Cross Bones cock rings were on full display as well. The rings come with two seven-function bullets that can be positioned in a number of ways, including crossed over one another.

buyer, Don Zerilli, gave a rave review. “The show turned out well, the best of the last three AVN shows in my opinion,” Zerilli said, and added that he intended to convince company management to do a Nalpac booth for next year. First-time exhibitors were no less enthusiastic. “The My Intima product launch at AEE 2012 was an extreme success,” said Mike Hannan, director of sales and marketing for the company, which has created a hands-free lubricant dispenser that is sponsored by adult star Stormy Daniels. “We had a great opportunity to showcase our product to stores and distributors. We are all very excited to be working with the top industry leaders and are anticipating extreme growth in the coming months.” Daniels echoed his enthusiasm. “It was an amazing show for us,” she said. “I have been to several adult trade shows, but this one was different. I was introducing a new product that I helped design and I really had a blast sharing the Intima with other

industry professionals. It is very gratifying to know that they are as excited as I am.” Andrew of Nuru Guru, was thrilled with response to his company’s product, a massage gel for full-body nuru massages. “This was Nuru Guru’s first official trade show,” he said. “We did a lot of research before choosing the AEE expo. We wanted an expo that could bring our new product line out with a bang. What better way or place than during the AVN Awards? “I must say, we definitely made the right choice for our first adult convention,” he enthused. “Never have we seen such an outpouring of community support from the AVN/AEE staff and attendants. We were pleased with the effort and enthusiasm. … From the beginning, when we couldn’t find our display, staff was so helpful in locating it. And at the end, staff helped us load our things into the truck. … We had a great turnout for our first event, and a fun time! See you next year!”

Extreme Massage Tables Jeff, creator of this new table designed specifically for couples, talked about how he came up with the idea. “My wife and I like massages, but trying to prop myself up on my knees on the bed made my back hurt,” he said. Aside from the pain, there was also the problem of it being difficult to move the massage into more intimate activities. “The table gives great access to the erogenous zones and allow for the inclusion of toys, too,” Jeff explained. The Extreme Massage Table is adjustable from 24 inches to 36 inches high; the legs can spread apart, while “plugs” on the table can be removed to allow for access to the breasts and genital areas. The surface is a hospital-grade covering that can be sanitized.

Fantasy Lingerie Company spokesperson David noted that Fantasy Lingerie has launched 20 new body stockings in its newly repackaged Desire Hosiery line, as well as 45 new styles in the brand-new Excite line for men. The Premium line, he explained, is geared toward hetero men, while the Extreme line is good for dancers or gay men. Also new is the fantasy costume line of briefs, which come in six styles for men, including sailor, doctor and more.

FixSation Company owner Tiffany, whose couples vibrator was nominated for an AVN Award, said that the FixSation was well received at its first-ever trade show. Inspiration for the product came from her desire to find a vibrator that she and her husband could use during sex. The vibe is held in place by a lacy waistband and allows couples to keep their hands free.

Fleshlight From their booth in the corridor between the main halls for AEE and ANE, the staff from Fleshlight were fielding questions from everyone—including national and international press outlets—about the Flight, the newest product from the company. “Everyone is telling us they love the compact and tight design,” said marketing manager Daniel Pacheco. With a smaller textured case, and a clear sleeve that features a nondescript orifice similar to the company’s Pure product, the Flight will retail for $49.95 and is expected to ship this spring.

Glow Industries ANE WRAP-UP

A pioneer in the glass toy field, Glow also showcased e-cigarettes and smoking accessories. Sales rep Tonja said the Black Label and Green Label cleaners, which care for glass, metal and ceramic smoking accessories, were receiving a lot of attention.

HM Distribution The company was offering up of its most popular supplements at ANE, including Hold, a pill that helps increase sexual enhancement while providing genital stimulation to men at the same time. “It’s like two products in one,” said company rep Tony.

Icon Brands The new company, which was nominated for multiple AVN Awards, exhibited several new products, including two new BookSmart items: an anal themed kit and a kit for men. BookSmart uses ingenious packaging to hide a variety of toys inside. The packaging looks like any normal book and can be hidden in plain sight on any bookshelf. “We are excited to be back at ANE after our successful launch at the July show,” said Joanie Lee, vice president of sales.

Jack Adams Julian and Matt introduced buyers to the company’s new underwear line for men. The designs combine some of the best features from traditional lines—a fly that opens, more room in the crotch, soft and stretchy fabric—with designer touches. “Real men wear jock straps,” Matt said of the new line, noting that the jock straps and briefs offer stylish looks that doesn’t break the bank.

ASA AKIRA IS INSATIABLE 2

AAAA 1/2 Elegant Angel Productions ElegantAngel.com Director: Mason Cast: Asa Akira, Katsuni, Manuel Ferrara, Mick Blue, Nacho Vidal, Lexington Steele, Erik Everhard, Broc Adams, Danny Mountain, John Strong, Jon Jon, Ramon Nomar, Toni Ribas. 215 Min. Category: All-Sex

MOVIES

It really doesn’t get much better when it comes to porn performers than Asa Akira. She’s brilliant, beautiful, thoughtful and sexually capable of so damn much. She’s compelling to watch and completely willing to share every piece of her self, her life and her sex with the camera. She calls the Insatiable movies she has done “therapy,” and if all her self-examination could come in this form, porn fans will be happy, happy people for years to come. This is undoubtedly one of the best all-sex releases of the last year and should be in regular stock at the top of your Elegant Angel section for the indefinite future. Mason, one of the top female directors this medium has ever seen, has knocked it out of the park here. Asa Akira Is Insatiable 2 is really, really damn great. The only weak spot in this is the choice to include a meager selection of DVD extras with the release, but that’s a minor quibble given the excellence of this overall. Akira wears ornate eyeshadow and pony girl gear, complete 118 | AVN.com | 3.12

with a bit in her mouth, for her anal scene with Nacho Vidal. Vidal tells her he loves her during their super-intense pairing, and she rims him extensively before he grabs a handful of her hair and moves her to the couch, where he fucks her ass thoroughly. Their fuck is wild and beautiful and shows off both partners at their demented best. In another anal scene, she jams her hand and Lexington Steele’s cock in her ass. Uh huh. Pause and consider that for a moment. That’s a damn lot, and Akira is just fierce all around. After doing some amazing tease, Akira gets fucked by Toni Ribas and Mick Blue in a large garage of some sort that harkens back to some of Mason’s earlier work before all of Elegant’s productions got the gloss on them that they have now. Akira won the AVN Award for Best Double Penetration Scene for her work in the first volume of this series last year, and became a repeat victor in the category at this year’s show for the scene at hand. She enthusiastically gives the men her holes and her lust like few have on video. After the men are done with her and she is a cum-stained mess on the floor, she fingers herself to get off. She grunts and twists and sighs with exhaustion. There’s a good three-way with Akira, former Digital Playground contract girl Katsuni and Manuel Ferrara. Akira is flown in to a helipad where she strips and shows off her bod before her epic seven-man gangbang that includes double vag and double anal in addition to double penetrations aplenty. —Heather Namikoshi

Comp spotlight Vivid’s Award Winners: Best Actress Vivid Entertainment Group

reviews

In keeping with the theme of this issue, it seemed only appropriate to call attention to Vivid’s inaugural installment of a new comp series celebrating those performances and movies from its vault that have been lavished with AVN award glory over the years. Though only on the box does it specify that the award these actresses received was in fact an AVN award, we can verify that each one has the trophy to prove it for the performance in question. And all of them, interestingly enough, received the accolade for their work in a Paul Thomas film, three of them in various installments of his Masseuse series. Those three are Hyapatia Lee, Ashlyn Gere and Jenna Jameson, and the rest of the Best Actresses showcased here are Savanna Samson (2003’s Looking In and 2005’s The New Devil in Miss Jones), Dyanna Lauren (1997’s Bad Wives), Raylene (2000’s Artemesia) and Penny Flame (2007’s Layout). —Peter Warren

REVIEWS

AAAA The folks at Extreme Comixxx once again have proven that they are not just casual comic book fans when it comes to tackling a porn parody. They went deep into the annals (not anals) of the Iron Man mythos. Seth Gamble really nails the Stark character, and Heather Starlet also puts in a strong acting performance as Pepper Potts. —Sherri L. Shaulis

Jynx Maze provides such an enticing image it warrants a couple of instant replays ElegantAngel.com

D: Mason. Cast: Kelly Divine, Briella Bounce, Jada Stevens, London Keyes, Jayden Jaymes, Others. 170 Min. Category: Big Butt

AAAA Thick white chicks perfect the booty bounce in the tease in this great Buttwoman entry. It’s missing the charm of a lot of the old editions of the series, but fans of Mason’s excellent, long tease sequences followed by rough, hard, mostly anal sex will make this fly off your shelves. —Heather Namikoshi

their cheeks popping up and down in the soapy water, giving joy to ass-loving acolytes everywhere. Nacho Vidal controls their every move, with one girl working his shaft, the other his balls, then deep throating each before moving out of the tub and onto a square couch, where there’s more room to move. He lines the gals up side by side for some doggie fucking, first jamming a finger up each asshole while Kristina sneaks in a little foot job. After some vag sex, it’s on to the main event: solid anal pounding that elicits two popshots from the manic Spaniard. Hard to top? Sure. But director Jules Jordan has lots more in store. Franceska Jaimes, her spectacular legs and ass revealed in a hot-pink net dress as she talks with Jules out by the pool, does some bravura d.p. work with James Deen and Chris Strokes. Jules also catches Jynx Maze outside by the infinity pool; she bounces up and down and provides one of the single best visuals by squeezing a butt plug out of her ass—such an enticing image it warrants a couple of instant replays. She also looks great bent over double as Jules pounds her ass. Phoenix Marie ups the ante, taking on the director as well as Strokes and Mark Wood in a scene that ends with a triple cream pie. And though Krissy Lynn just gets two guys—Deen and Jordan Ash—she makes the most of the action, showing off her nice blonde bush and giving great eye contact throughout, saying at the end, “This was the best day of my life.” And the tail end comes from ample-assed Kelly Divine, whose booty clapping and ass-sitting animates her boy/girl scene with Strokes. Two discs, six scenes—still not enough? There’s more sex in the 15-minute BTS. —Iris Blocks

A visit to Dana DeArmond’s pad means that Belladonna demands to see DeArmond’s panty drawer and masturbation corner. They wash a car in bikinis before getting into each other’s pussies, feet and asses in the backseat. It’s a gorgeous, lusty affair. MILF strap-on queen Francesca Lé goes shopping with Belladonna at the Pleasure Chest before they go to their private spa that they rented for the day. There’s a good amount of foot play in their fuck, and their standing play in a multi-jet shower along with their sweaty stuff in the sauna is wonderful. Afterwards, the two eat a fruit salad and talk about porno shoots of days gone by.

ROMEO & JULIET A DREAMZONE PARODY

ases

AAAA 1/2 DreamZone Entertainment DreamZoneEnt.com Director: Lee Roy Myers Cast: Chanel Preston, Andy San Dimas, Ann Marie Rios, India Summer, Rocco Reed, Anthony Rosano, Tom Byron; Kiki D’Aire, Lucy Blaze, Vicky Vixen, Brian Street Team, Chad Alva, Chad Diamond, Richie, Ryan Driller, Cowboy (Non-Sex Roles). 113 Min. Category: Parody - Drama

For anyone who read (or had to read) Romeo & Juliet in high school, or even those who managed to see Franco Zeffirelli’s 1968 movie version, probably to check out that momentary glimpse of Olivia Hussey’s exposed tit—no such luck with Claire Danes in Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 version—Lee Roy Myers’ adaptation will have some added interest, since he and co-scripter Crystal D. manage to keep a fair chunk of Shakespeare’s original dialog while modernizing some bits of it and adding their own words and sexually

explicit actions. But even those with no background in Elizabethian manner and morés will enjoy this timeless romance, perhaps partly because, as has been reported, stars Chanel Preston and Rocco Reed began a several-monthslong personal relationship while playing their title roles. As the movie opens, Rocco and Brian Street Team are fellow auto mechanics who decide to crash the rich Capulets’ (India Summer, Tom Byron) costume party looking for easy scores—until Rocco catches a glimpse of Chanel in her feathered mask and is immediately smitten. Of course, Chanel’s fresh from a hot girl/girl scene with best bud Ann Marie Rios that includes plenty of kissing, fingering and 69—and Chanel telling her at the end, “The only time I’ve ever been sure of love is with you.” Anyway, Chanel’s on-screen bro Anthony Rosano warns Rocco off, reminding him that Rocco’s family, the Montagues, have been engaged in a yearslong feud with the Capulets—but Chanel slips Rocco her phone number anyway. Determined to keep Rocco out of his sister’s panties, Anthony pays a visit on Rocco’s ex, Andy San Dimas, but the conversation quickly turns to their own lusts, with Anthony claiming that he wants to “fill your well and your heart.” The “filling the well” part works out best, with Anthony undressing Andy as he kisses her and licks her tits. Andy takes the lead, climbing aboard for cowgirl, snuggling up for spoon, crouching for doggie (after which he licks her toes) and spreading for mish until he cums on her pussy. Of course, what rendition of this classic tale would be complete without Romeo enticing Juliet from her bedroom to the balcony? Once he’s climbed inside, he opens her robe, slips down her bra and removes her panties, after which they partake in the same positions we just saw with Anthony and Andy ... but whatthehell: It’s long, beautiful and caring lovemaking! Anthony, incensed by Rocco’s seduction of his sister, confronts him and Brian with a gun, and in the ensuing struggle, Rocco shoots him and, on Brian’s advice, goes into hiding. Meanwhile, the elder Capulets take their turn on the couch, with Tom undressing India and licking her pussy (and she his cock) before she mounts him, spoons him, kisses him deeply while he fucks her missionarily, then lets him cum on her ass in doggie. But all the hot sex notwithstanding, this is, after all, a tragedy, the details of which we won’t reveal here. Suffice to say that this is one of the classiest historical adaptations we’ve ever seen in XXX, and it deserves viewers’ (especially couples’) attention.

THIS AIN’T JAWS XXX AAAA 1/2 Adam & Eve Pictures/Hustler Video AdamEve.com; Hustler.com Director: Stuart Canterbury Cast: Alexis Ford, Lily LaBeau, Phoenix Marie, Jayden Cole, Darcy Tyler, Dale DaBone, Evan Stone, Danny Wylde, Rocco Reed. 100 Min. Category: 3D, Parody

straddling him in reverse before positions are reversed and he’s pounding her missionarily on the table, then snuggling up in spoon before he cums on her pussy. Too bad she’s about to be eaten ... by a shark, that is! As much as sheriff Dale DaBone complains about a possible shark threat, mayor Jayden Cole won’t close the beaches—but after beach bunny Phoenix Marie (channeling ’60s teen movie icon Diane Varsi) finishes getting it on (horsie, reverse cowgirl, mish) with ‘60s-haired stud Rocco Reed in a tent, Dale spots the shark feasting on another swimmer, and demands that Jayden close the beach. Fortunately, shark expert Alexis Ford (looking incredibly better than Richard Dreyfuss) agrees—in fact, she agrees so much that as soon as Dale leaves the room, she puts the moves on Jayden. The pair kisses tenderly, then Jayden dives right for Alexis’s boobs. Sixty-nine on the desk follows, with good 3D shots of each girl’s mouth on the other’s pussy. Alexis humps Jayden’s upper thigh (it’s called “tribbing”), and Jayden sticks her fingers in Alexis’s pussy. The scene ends with the gals soloing side by side with toys.

Considering how much trouble Steven Spielberg had with his mechanical shark in the original Jaws, it’s probably good that the folks at Hustler and Adam & Eve went with a digitized one for their parody. But while Spielberg’s film opened with a lone swimmer being attacked by a great white, Stuart Canterbury’s version opens with a beach party ... from which young lovers Lily LaBeau and Danny Wylde sneak off to get it on in a bamboo hut. First, Lily chows down on his rod while fingering herself. Moments later, he’s flat on his back on a bench and she’s

And then it’s time to get down to business. Evan Stone (“It’s Quint—just Quint”) offers his services to hunt the shark with Alexis, but sends the usually seasick Dale home to “make love to your wife.” That’s busty Darcy Tyler in her first storyline feature, and she doesn’t disappoint. She chows down on Dale’s wiener, mounts it in both directions, then spreads for mish before swallowing his spew. Evan threatens to hook the shark by dangling his “big worm” in front of it, but the giant fish’s first appearance causes reconsideration—and a boozeand-scar-comparison party once night falls. Dale leaves Evan and Alexis alone, and in moments, they’re licking/sucking each other’s fun parts and doing the missionary mambo. One of those strange Evan Stone cowgirl rides follows before Alexis settles down to a vertical bounce backwards and sideways in the chair, ending with a splooge to her tits. Of course, the shark intrudes on the fucking, and if we had a Best Overactor Award, Evan would get it as the shark crashes the stern of the boat and eats him. This inspires a naked Alexis to dive in and try to kill it with a speargun, but as in the original, Dale feeds the shark an oxygen tank and explodes it, blowing the shark to smithereens. Overall, the 3D videography is excellent, with just a few moments of unfusable images—and if you’ve never seen top stars fucking in 3D, you don’t know what you’re missing.
