WE’VE GOT ISSUES |

Talking Points

Black stars talk about their lives in porn

O

NOVEMBER 2016

ne could hardly call interracial porn a “trend,” given that the genre has been one of the mainstays of adult entertainment. But there’s no denying that movies pairing black men and white women—the usual combination that comes into play when the IR label is deployed—have been selling briskly. So when the AVN editorial team set out to do a cover story on IR, we decided that rather than talking to adult studios about the creation, distribution and marketing of interracial movies, we would instead focus exclusively on the male performers who bring this all-American fantasy to life. On the cover are three stars who got their start two decades ago: Sean Michaels, Lexington Steele and Mandingo. (Graciously agreeing to do the photo shoot was director Kevin Moore, Steele’s partner in Lex Steele Productions.) Inside are some of their colleagues, making up an even dozen BBM (beautiful black men). Prince Yahshua, Shane Diesel, Jason Brown, Nat Turnher, Rico Strong and Jon Jon have all been active for more than a decade, while Moe Johnson, Flash Brown and Isiah Maxwell are more recent arrivals on the scene. AVN asked these performers many of the same questions, and each of them gave thoughtful, heartfelt answers. Read on to learn more about how they got into porn, and what they like most and least about their chosen career. Some of them have also worked in the director’s chair—most notably Sean Michaels, Lexington Steele and Prince Yahshua—so they talk about those experiences as well. We also asked all of these men whether they had experienced any barriers in their careers, and the consensus was that despite the great successes they have had in the business, many have found that the porn industry is not immune from the racial divides that continue to roil American society. In the summer of 2015, former adult star Aurora Snow wrote a column for Daily Beast titled “Why Porn’s ‘Interracial’ Label Is Racist.” Snow talked to several performers and made the argument that paying white women a higher rate to do their “first interracial” amounted to discrimination. “Performers of color don’t have opportunities like that,” performer Daisy Ducati told Snow. “No one’s going to pay me more to fuck a white person.” Snow’s essay was not the last time the issue of race and porn came up in the mainstream. In February 2016, The Daily Show put a comedic spin on the subject. In the piece, Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood Jr. discussed the issue with industry luminaries Misty Stone, Prince Yahshua and Lisa Ann, as well as sex therapist and author Dr. Marty Klein (also quoted by Snow). Though there were some pointed comments (including a bit where Lisa Ann wrote out a long list across two whiteboards of acts that white starlets will perform before doing interracial), the segment ended with a fantasy all-colors-of-the-

rainbow orgy scene featuring Stone, September Reign, Lauren Phillips, Priya Rai, Luna Star, Nikita Denise, Tony Martinez and, of course, Ron Jeremy. Wood also did a web-only scene pitching his own porn series offering positive portrayals of black people, Affirmative Actions (including appearances by Phillips, Jeremy and Alana Evans). In July on the series Vice Does America, which aired on the Vice Channel, host Abdullah Saeed also touched on the porn/race intersection when he and his crew visited Dogfart director Billy Watson and his cast on the set of Megyn Gets Trumped, one of the porno parodies sparked by Trump’s presidential candidacy. Adult performer James Bartholet hammed it up as Trump while Cherie DeVille played the Megyn Kelly character—but what really caught the Vice crew’s attention were Prince Yahshua and Rico Strong, who played The Donald’s security team, whose task it was to “pole” the newswoman. Director Watson was more than up to the challenge of having the inquisitive Vice team on set, even putting the three hosts—Abdullah, Wilbert and Martina—to work on the XXX set as part of the production crew. Amid the laughter, more serious comments emerge. Wilfred and Watson listened as Yahshua talked about the challenges of “navigating your way through a highly racist business” and Strong explains the “interracial” label in porn. Recently the IR debate came even closer to home when in September the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee came out with a statement which read, in part, “APAC is aware that using race as a determining factor in work and pay rate has become common business practice. However, we feel this must change in order to create better work environments in the industry. Although APAC supports and respects the personal choices that performers make when it comes to rates, scene partners, and types of scenes to work in, we feel choosing to work with someone based on race as a business practice has a negative impact on the performer community. It is important to keep in mind that scene partners are not simply personal sex partners on set; they are co-workers. It is not an acceptable practice in any other industry to choose who someone works with solely based on race.” Since the statement was issued, it’s fair to say that the industry’s attention has been utterly consumed by the fight against Proposition 60 (don’t forget to vote NO on November 8). Once that battle is over, it will be interesting to see how companies react to APAC’s challenge. But whatever arrangements that agents, producers and performers negotiate among themselves, porn consumers’ appetite for watching mixed-race sex will remain. And fortunately for them, there’s no shortage of high-quality titles available to stock. You’ll find a small sampling in this month’s stocking guide in between pages 26 and 27, as well as in AVN’s sales charts, starting on page 100.

FRESH FACES

Alexa Grace: Working the Angles

A

Hometown: Orlando, Fla. | Age: 21 | Height: 5-foot-10 | Weight: 124 pounds | 32A-22-40 | Hair: Blond | Eyes: Green lexa Grace considers her advanced training in videography an asset as an adult

performer. “I understand the angles, where they’re coming from and what they’re looking for,” Grace tells AVN. “I think it helps a great deal.” Armed with a bachelor’s degree in film from a university in her native Orlando, Fla., the 21-year-old knows her way around a big production. After graduating last summer, she spent six months in Georgia behind a camera for various projects, shooting a music video, a short film and more. “I like creating the image that other people are seeing,” Grace says. “I think that’s really cool.” During her time as a videographer she also was flying to L.A. every month

to continue her still burgeoning porn career, juggling both until deciding to move to Southern California in January and focus on adult. The 5-foot-10 starlet, whose sultry look and sizzling sex scenes have led to both feature and gonzo bookings from nearly every major studio, already has amassed more than 70 credits. “I always liked coming out here,” Grace says. “I realized there was a big difference in just my mood when I came out here. I was a lot happier. I’ve been on the East Coast all of my life and it’s just a totally different world and it’s just convenient with doing cam modeling and doing porn. I like to be in L.A.” Grace, who cams for Flirt4Free, actually made her industry debut in February of 2014, but only shot a handful of scenes during her breaks from school. She says her path to the industry started out while she was on a mainstream shoot. “I was working on an independent feature and one of the executive producers asked if I did modeling,” Grace recalls. She decided to try it and began building a portfolio. “And then I got offers to do porn,” she adds, noting she was hesitant at first. “Eventually I needed it financially, but I like sex. So I liked it as soon as I started.” Among her dozens of credits include high-profile performances for Blacked, Dark X, Erotica X, Sweet Sinner, Digital Playground, Digital Sin, Bang, Wicked Pictures, Evil Angel, X-Art, Reality Kings, Girlsway, Kelly Madison, Dogfart and Brazzers. In addition, Grace has racked up more than a dozen credits for FM Concepts. Grace especially likes shooting for Erotica X. “Just the crew, the talent, everyone is just awesome,” she says. “Even if it does take all day it’s still probably one of my favorites by far. Blacked is another one. I just like how professional they are. They’re not bullshitting you. It’s like, ‘we’re here for a job,’ which is nice.” Her wish list for upcoming shoots includes Jules Jordan Video, Hustler and Penthouse. She says when she’s not shooting that she enjoys hiking. “And I cook every single day,” Grace says. “I like the arts. I just like creating stuff. And I love movies.” Alexa Grace is represented by Nexxxt Level Talent Agency. Follow her on Twitter: @AlexaGraceXXX. —Dan Miller

oni Legend started with solo scenes and did her first b/g scene for Border Patrol. “That was ... interesting,” she said with a chuckle. “I was cast as a drug queen trying to cross the border with my two henchmen. It was desert-like. We had to struggle at it. I got fucked in the back of their authentic Border Patrol truck.” When asked what she likes about the industry, she said, “Getting my hair and makeup done. I’m not good at it. I’ve been forced to practice more, for scenes and stuff, but it’s way funner when I have someone else do it. Professionals.” Still a relative newbie at about two years in, Legend says her best recent work is a creampie scene she did with Bambino for Porn Pros: “It looked really good and I’m proud of the pictures.” Her dream scene would be a three-way with James Deen and Manuel Ferrara: “Ohmigawd yes. I love two-boy threesomes, it’s my favorite thing to be spitroasted. And they’re my top male performers since I started watching porn. I’ve always loved them. And they’re really good performers.”

Her 5-foot stature makes it “easier to move around” for positions like standing 69 or standing mish: “I’m the best shelf,” she says with a satisfied laugh. She attended the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo earlier this year. “It was so much fun. I got to meet a lot of really interesting people. It was fun walking on the floor and seeing all the different people with their booths and their goods. I bought this really cute bunny anal plug tail. It was great seeing all my favorite people in one place. I saw Alexis Texas, James Deen, Veronica Rodriguez. It was cool socializing. I couldn’t go to the parties because I wasn’t 21, but I had a real good time. I got to meet another one of my porn celebrity crushes: Anthony Rosano. We didn’t actually shoot together, but he was really nice. I totally fan-girled out.” Her words to live by come from Marilyn Monroe: “Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world.” Book Loni Legend through 360 Modeling.

FRESH FACES

Sophia Grace: Giving Back

Hometown: Fort Mill, S.C. | Age: 20 | Height: 5-foot-6 | Weight: 128 pounds | 34C-24–35 | Hair: Dark Brown | Eyes: Hazel

S

ophia Grace tells AVN her freak factor knows no bounds. “I think this year honestly has been my year of freakiness,” Grace admits. “I wish that getting into porn I was as freaky as I am now and as open and completely cool with the cameras and talking dirty and stuff. I feel like this year I’ve embraced it more.”

That attitude adjustment shows in a growing number of scenes for top studios that show first-hand how the 20-year-old performer brings it. The former high school cheerleader, who debuted in February of last year, says what she loves about doing porn is “it’s taboo.” “I feel like it’s a form of art and you should be able to express yourself,” Grace explains. “And I think that doing something that everybody else kind of despises or just thinks wrong of I just personally like it even better.” She says she stopped caring what others think when she turned 18 and got out of a four-year relationship. “I had my first girl/girl experience and I was like, wow maybe I am a little freak and I just don’t know it,” Grace recalls. “When I was younger I would always watch girl/girl porn. Lesbian porn was my favorite thing, never really straight porn. But the thing is now that I’m in porn I prefer straight porn when I’m performing. “I date a girl but I prefer to have dick on camera than pussy.” She watched a lot of Girlsway movies and Filly Films “because I just liked how organic it looked and they actually hired girls that liked girls.” A native of Fort Mill, S.C., just outside Charlotte, N.C., Grace returned to porn in late February after a four-month hiatus when she obtained her real estate license in South Carolina. But taking some time off from porn was a good thing, she adds. “I think that taking some time off made producers really want to work with me. As soon as I got back in I was booked up for like two months.” One of those bookings was with none other than Mick Blue for BAM Visions. “It was a foot-fetish anal scene and I love anal,” Grace says. “It’s actually one of my favorite things in my personal life, so getting to bring that on set was great.” That scene, available on DVD through Evil Angel, is in Anal Footsies and marked her first time working with the two-time AVN Male Performer of the Year. Grace, who is of Italian descent, has also worked for Evil Angel producer/director Mike Adriano, LeWood Productions, Hustler, New Sensations, Porn Pros, Digital Playground, Reality Kings, Bang Bros,

Fetish Network, Kink and more. Her scene with Adriano can be seen in Deep Anal Action 2. “It was just a lot of butt stuff. It was intense,” Grace recalls. “He’s one of my favorites to work with. Between him, Mick Blue and Chad White.” Grace has done multiple scenes with White, including a boy/girl/girl anal for Naughty America VR. An avid snowboarder since she was 10 who loves the outdoors, she says her ultimate goal is to own a boutique that features one-of-a-kind pieces. She also wants to include a “backstory” with each item. “People like to buy things with meanings as well,” Grace says, adding that she would like to donate a portion of her profits to charity. “Basically, I want to give back by making money. That’s like my life goal. I’m actually in the process right now of making my business plan and getting an LLC together because I want to open it in five to seven years.” Book Sophia Grace through ATMLA.

had no idea what to expect, so I was expecting nothing,” says Zoey Laine of her first scene (with Seth Gamble, Summer Day “and another girl whose name I don’t remember, she’s brandnew too”). “It surprised me how comfortable that I was doing it. I was so nervous right beforehand, and then I got there, and then we started, and it was like I’d done it all the time.” Laine describes her pre-adult-industry life as “waitressing, and doing odd jobs, and living out of my car traveling. Gypsying from Kentucky to California. I was on my way to Alaska and then I got into porn.” She was fired from a waitressing gig in Santa Cruz because “they said it was my attitude problem, but I think it was because I was living in my car. They were kinda weird about that. I couldn’t find another job for some reason and I found Kevin Moore from Evil Angel on Reddit. I didn’t know who he was, and I emailed him ‘How do I get into porn?’ He invited me to one of his sets, so I took a train to L.A., sat through a 12-hour set, and took a train back the next morning. He hooked me up with my agency the next day.” She says her best work so far has been for HookupHotshot.com with Bryan Gozzling and a “super hardcore fake murder-rape scene for Psycho-Thrillers.com.” “I love all the people that I meet in the industry, all the people I

work with. I’m just trying to have fun with it and not be too crazy serious.” She doesn’t have a long-term plan: “I never do.” But the vagabond spirit still burns bright: “Right now I’m trying to save as much money as I can to get a van and live in it. I’m living under a roof against my will. It’s making me crazy. I just want some land and a school bus. I’m going to make the school bus into a trailer, and own a bunch of goats and live by myself.” Book Zoey Laine through ATMLA. Follow her on Twitter: @zoeylainexxx. —Tod Hunter

A lifelong performer who grew up in Illinois, Clitman traveled the country singing for a non-profit organization before making her debut in May for Reality Kings. It was on that set in Florida that her porn persona came to life. “It was a foot fetish shoot and we shot in South Beach at a boutique and they were like, ‘On camera you look exactly like Nicole Kidman. Like, you have to change your name,’” she recalls. “So I thought about it for a while and I was like, ‘What about Clitman?’ And they were like, ‘Yes, that’s the one!’” And now a lot more than her stage name is proving memorable. The talented blonde has been booked early and often since coming to the West Coast, doing scenes for Kink, Evil Angel’s Mike Adriano and LeWood Productions. Now represented by ATMLA, she also has performed for Girlfriends Films, North Pole, Kelly Madison, Wankz VR and Digital Playground, among others. “I’ve just been embracing everything. I’ve been taking it all in,” Clitman says. “Sometimes I’m quiet because I’m listening to everything. I’m processing everything. I’m learning every day, all day. But the experience is so much fun.

Why don’t I make some money off of it?” Already she’s done a little acting, playing Fox News host Megyn Kelly in a “live debate” on CamSoda. “That was my second shoot ever,” Clitman says. “It was a live debate and I had to fuck Donald Trump. It was Tony D, the male talent. Parker Swayze was Hillary Clinton. Yeah that was interesting. It was really fun.” So far, she says, producers can’t believe she’s 24. “Everyone’s like, you need to stick to the teen stuff while you can. So I’ve been doing a lot of teen, young, natural scenes,” Clitman says. “It’s been awesome. I love it out here. It’s a huge change of pace. I’ve never been this far over to the West Coast. It’s my dream to be in California. So I’m literally living my dream right now.” Nicole Clitman is represented by ATMLA. Follow her on Twitter: @NicoleClitman. —Dan Miller

WHO’S WHO

hane Blair has been self-supporting “since I was 16-17,” working as a server in various restaurants in her home state of Colorado. “It was fun.” She wanted to work in the adult industry “since I was in high school, but I never thought about looking into it. When the opportunity came, I was all for it. I wanted to go straight to California right away.” She thinks her Twistys scene with Tyler Nixon is her favorite scene so far. “It just went really smoothly, and they did my makeup and my hair really well, and the pictures turned out beautiful. I haven’t see the full scene, but I watched the trailer and it looked pretty good to me.” Blair says she likes the acting part of performing: “I’ve never done it until porn. And I have a lot more respect for actors who do it regularly, because it’s so hard—memorize a script, think about how you’re going to execute it, your facial expressions, the inflection in your voice. There’s so much that goes into it. It’s hard to learn. But I like it. I like playing a character that I’m not every day. It’s fun.” She went to her first AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in January, and describes it as “really, really busy. Lots of people, lots of energy. So many things going on. I actually found it to be more beneficial to be walking around and be talking to people than being at my agency’s booth, because I found more fans were coming to the booth than directors and producers. I had no idea

what to expect, I had no idea what to wear, so I just winged it. It went by really fast.” She hikes “a lot. I’m from Colorado and the mountains are only 20 minutes from my house.” She also enjoys fishing: “I keep a tackle box and a fishing pole in the trunk of my car. I’ve never done deep-sea fishing. Actually I’m afraid of the ocean. I just tan on the beach. Splash around a little bit.” And despite the fact that she hails from Colorado, “I’ve never skied or snowboarded. I hate snow. That’s why I’m here. For the weather.” Looking to the future, Blair has purchased her own Internet domain and a Canon Rebel camera, so “I’m going to start shooting my own content. I am so excited.” Book Shane Blair through LA Direct Models. Follow her on Twitter: @ShaneBlairxxx. —Tod Hunter

F

resh-faced Kallie Jo hails from Fayetteville, North Carolina, so it’s probably no surprise that her parents weren’t thrilled about her

getting into porn. But the gal with the almond eyes and big smile realized early on that acting in adult had to be better than the waitressing she’d done since she was old enough to work—and besides, community college bored her, so she did what any savvy teen does these days: She went online to see what was available. “I looked through several different agencies. I found one that I felt I could be comfortable with,” she explained. “I started out with AMA Modeling, and I went to Florida and shot some scenes in Florida, and that’s how I got started. Then I came home and found a new agent, and he was based out of California—Chris at Foxxx Modeling—and that’s how I’m here now.” Indeed, Kallie commutes to L.A. from Fayetteville for work, and she considers traveling to be one of the perks of porn. “Since I’ve been in the industry, I’ve gotten to go to Miami and now California,” she noted. “I’ve never been this far west before, ever, and I enjoy it.” One of the thing directors like about her is her accent, and it’s that drawl that inspired her to choose her stage name. “‘Kallie Jo’ just sounds so Southern, and you can hear it in my voice,” she said. “Everybody that talks to me goes,

‘Ohmigod, where are you from?’ I just play off the Southern accent and it’s done pretty well for me.” In future, she’s looking forward to actually creating characters on-screen because, “I enjoy doing dialogue; it’s fun, getting into it and getting into character; I’m really good at that.” But one of her real dreams since getting into the industry is to work for Greg Lansky’s Blacked.com. “I’ve actually never, even in my personal life, been with a black man, so I think it would be a pretty good experience to be able to do that on camera for the first time ever.” And where does she see herself ten years from now? “I hope to be doing hair and makeup on sets for girls,” she said. “I have learned that I am good at makeup and hair, and I love doing it, and actually, I would like to get into the kind of makeup they do on mainstream movies, make people look like witches and gremlins and things; I’d love to do that.” Considering how many superhero and other parodies the industry is turning out these days, she may get her chance a lot sooner than anyone expects!

Taylor May: Anal Newbie

WHO’S WHO

hough Taylor May has only been making adult videos for a little more than a year, they weren’t her first experience with XXX content. “I was working as a cam model for probably six months, and I don’t know how I found it,” the Oregon native admitted. “I was just on the internet and I came across this ad about camming or whatever, and it was like, ‘You can make up to this much a week!’ I was like, ‘Hunh!’ So I was living with some roommates, but I was making more on camming than I was at my full-time job as a manager of a fast-food restaurant. “One time my roommate actually walked in on me, because she didn’t believe in knocking for some reason,” Taylor chuckled, “so she walks right and I had this dildo in my hand and was going at it, and she was like, ‘Oh,’ walks out and closes the door and we never talked about it again.” After “getting kind of bored playing with myself all the time,” she wanted to find more people who were in the sex industry and that’s how she got into porn. “The pay is great and I love sex, so it was a perfect combo.”

What she found online was The VIP Connect, and in no time she was signing at the agency’s booth at this past AVN Adult Entertainment Expo. “I loved it!” she exclaimed. “It was my first year. It was really cool. My favorite part was connecting to everybody and meeting all the people, and I was even taking photos.” Sexually speaking, Taylor’s a big fan of anal, having worked several times for Evil Angel, Jules Jordan and Greg Lansky in her first months in the biz. “I did anal in my private life, so I was really used to it, so that’s why when it came up as a question from my agent, it was not a problem for me,” she explained. “Anal Newbies was really cool because it was my first time working with a girl director, Francesca Lé, and she was really chill; she was awesome,” Taylor added. “She helped me out a lot and we took some good photos and that was actually my first cover of being on a DVD, so I thought it was awesome.” Taylor most likes working with her friends in the industry, particularly Shyla Ryder and Jenna Jay—”and then guy-wise, I love everyone I’ve worked with; there haven’t been any problems with anybody.” And what hasn’t she done yet that she’d like to try? “I’ve been wanting to do a schoolgirl scene forever. That was like the very first sexual fantasy I ever had for some reason. It was me in a little uniform a little schoolgirl skirt, little cardigan in class with the teacher—that’d be so cool!” To relax, Taylor is way into music, both as a songwriter and mixing her own beats in with the samples she’s taken from others. Also, “I love writing. I’ve been working on trying to start a blog. ... I’ve been writing everything down.” It’s probably a bit too early for a tell-all book, but give her a couple of years and New York Times bestseller list, here she comes!

Disputed Territory Arbitration is one of the hottest litigation topics going

Normally, if a dispute arises between parties to a contract that cannot be resolved—and it is worth it to do so—the disgruntled party will file a lawsuit in court. However, more often than not, parties will include dispute-resolution provisions in their contract when they draft it in the first place. Why do that? Many reasons. What follows illustrates this: If you utilize form contracts, not only have the good sense to have an attorney draft them for you, but also periodically ask the attorney to review and, if needed, update them. Read on. For example, suppose a Nevada company and a California company come to an agreement for some commercial transaction. If anyone involved has an ounce of sense, the agreement will be reduced to writing. Why? Obviously, the parties don’t want to get into an expensive squabble over the terms of the agreement. Unfortunately, too many agreements go no further than that. Now, assume that a dispute arises and a lawsuit is filed and an initial dispute arises over which state should try the case. Deciding where to try the case could be expensive. And it might be a big issue because Nevada and California might have different rules. Then there are other issues: discovery, motions, scheduling orders, waiting for an opportunity to try the case (which will get continued many times for whatever reasons), judgment, appeals ... and on and on and on. Thus, over a century ago, there was invented arbitration. In arbitration, a lawyer, usually a retired judge decides the dispute. The topic here relates to disputes over whether

arbitration clauses in contracts are enforceable. This invariably arises when a big guy writes a form contract. The little guy often claims that the arbitration provision is unconscionable. Why? Because the plaintiff wants a jury trial and a class action because juries run the risk of a “runaway verdict”—and class actions make a whole bunch of money for the plaintiffs’ attorneys. The latest wrinkle in this range war between class action attorneys and businesses is the question of who decides the validity of the arbitration provision—the arbitrator or the judge. The presumption is that the court makes the decision. How it works is that the individual plaintiff files a lawsuit—seeking class action status—against the company that wrote the contract. The defendant company will respond with a motion to dismiss the complaint or to stay the case and compel arbitration. In response, the plaintiff might claim that the arbitration provision is invalid for whatever reason, usually because it is procedurally and/or substantively unconscionable. The law presumes that the judge will decide that issue. Recently, however, attorneys have started including contractual provisions stating in essence that the arbitrator will make that decision, not the judge. Why? Arbitrators lean toward arbitration because they believe in it; because that’s what they do; and they don’t get paid if they decide that the arbitration clause is no good. A recent example of this is Mohamed v. Uber Technologies, Inc., ___ F.3d ___, 2016 WL 4651409 (9th Cir., September 7, 2016). Mr. Mohamed, a former Uber driver, and one of his former colleagues had a beef with Uber. Claiming that they were just two of an army of Uber drivers who had suffered the same wrong, they sought class action status. (Their claim? You guessed it—that they should have been treated as employees rather than independent contractors.) Uber filed a motion to compel arbitration, which was based upon a contractual arbitration provision. The court found the provision invalid; Uber appealed. Notably, the important issue on appeal involved the arbitration provision in the second of the two contracts; it provided that the arbitrator, not the judge, would decide any issue of the validity of the arbitration provision. Parenthetically, a lesson can be learned from this. Uber’s lawyers apparently were on the ball; and they updated the existing agreement in 2014 to add to a provision designating the arbitrator, not the judge, would decide the validity and interpretation of the arbitration provision. In any event, the court agreed with Uber. The trial judge was wrong to decide that the arbitration provision of the second was invalid. Rather, the trial judge should have sent the case to the arbitrator to decide that issue, as the arbitration provision stated. So, when is the last time you had an attorney review your form contracts? A stitch in time ...

added girth, Alloderm is used, “tissue grafts” that are wrapped around the rod and placed like strips of bacon on the shaft. Dr. Alexander Krakosvsky, a plastic surgeon in La Jolla, California, specializes in “penile enhancement surgery” or “phalloplasty.” He says, “The average one can expect to gain in girth from this procedure is a half inch to one inch.” Krakosvky also performs penis lengthening surgery, which adds up to two inches by cutting and “releasing” the “suspensory and fundiform ligaments” from inside the pubic bone and pulling them out. Krakosvsky warns, however, that post-op the patient must use weights on his schlong for weeks or the penis will “retract back inside,” creating a “where the hell did my dick go?” situation. (I forgot to ask if the balls got sucked back up in there too.) The lengthening procedure is often combined with non-surgical fillers for the dick head, called “glandular penis enhancement” (“GPE”), but is often done in conjunction with penis widening, eliminating the possibility of ending up with a mushroom in your pants. The latest surgical procedure is the male equivalent of breast implants, the “penile implant.” Designed for cosmetic purposes only, it makes the man bone wider and longer, as opposed to the penile implant for erectile dysfunction that creates a boner on demand. Dr. James Elist, a urologist and plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, is the only doctor in the world who performs the operation. His invention recently received FDA approval.

Chic Cheeks

Big butts are big business. The “Brazilian Butt Lift” is now the most requested surgical procedure for women, say plastic surgeons. The $4,000 to $14,000 procedure involves harvesting fat from other parts of the body through tumescent liposuction, “processing” the good fat with centrifugation, then carefully re-injecting the fat back into the butt, lifting it up for perky bootyliciousness. When I asked one prominent Beverly Hills plastic surgeon who performs the procedure if the Kardashian sisters have had fat transferred into their asses, he asked me not to use his name and said, “Of course. Just look at some old photos of them. Their buttocks get bigger as they get thinner. Even porn stars want an ass like theirs. Fake is the new real.”

Lips Serviced

Vaginal labiaplasty is more popular than ever, first pioneered by Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. David Matlock, called “the Picasso of Vaginas.” He says, “Women show me pictures in adult men’s magazines and say ‘I want to look like this.’” And I thought men were just happy to see one. “A lot of lesbians ask for this,” he says of his procedure, which corrects uneven labia

where one is hanging low or larger than the other. He also “enhances” labia that are too small, sort of “plumping up the beef curtains.” “Vaginal rejuvenation” is a different procedure, and is for women who’ve stretched out their vaginas from having kids. (Contrary to popular belief, women’s vajajays don’t get stretched out from having too many double penetrations; it’s more about passing a baby the size of a basketball through a two-inch wide vagina.) In this procedure, the vagina is tightened to a “pre-virginal” state of tightness, according to Matlock, giving any 48-year-old the cooch of an 18-year-old. “Husbands thank me,” he reports.

And ... Scrotox

Scrotox is botox for your balls. The latest contender in the non-surgical plastic surgery category. And at a cost of $1,300 to $2,000, turning your prunes into plums isn’t cheap. So why do guys get this? Three reasons: Sweaty balls (competitive bicyclists and marathoners also get it), wrinkly balls, and small balls. Male performers or gay men with small scrotums might be self-conscious, but I don’t know too many women who say “Damn, if only his balls were an inch bigger.”

Founding Fathers

The legendary Falcon turns 45 … and looks better than ever “When I was a young gay man and I finally discovered gay porn, I found Falcon,” says Toby Morris, VP marketing. “The two releases that stick out in my mind that I was instantly attracted to and turned on by were Quarterback Sack and Branded. I would venture to guess that the majority of men who have sex with men and came of age before the internet—and who have even just a little interest in gay porn—would tell you that a Falcon movie was their first gay porn experience.” Established in 1971 by Chuck Holmes in San Francisco, Falcon rose as the pre-eminent brand in the gay porn industry. Through the decades, it has branched off into other successful niche brands like Jocks Studios, Mustang Studios, Falcon International, Falcon Str8 Men and most recently Falcon Edge. Morris says Falcon has plans to produce a number of new titles inspired by classics and hits from the studio’s past. “Falcon is the standard-bearer of high-quality gay porn and the leader in the industry since its inception,” says Morris. “Falcon was the home of some of the luminaries of the business and cultivated talent that went on to launch, lead or direct for other major brands, including the likes of Steven Scarborough (Hot House), Chi Chi LaRue (Rascal/ Channel 1), John Rutherford (Colt), mr. Pam (NakedSword) and more. If gay porn had a family tree, Falcon would most definitely be the trunk.” Dimarco says the studio has lasted so long because it always adapts and changes appetites over time to the tastes of the porn consumer—what gay men want to see—and also by staying true to its roots of filming beautiful men in spectacular locations having hot sex in a cinematic style. “Falcon defined what gay porn was at the time and what gay sex could be. For many people, it was a guidebook to what they could do sexually and opened a world that was previously private and taboo, bringing gay sex out in the open to the men who craved it. Also, by bringing the ‘gay sexual subculture’ to the masses, it inadvertently defined a look for a generation of gay men that were searching for an identity,” says the senior director.

T

ony Dimarco’s first memories of the “Falcon man” were of the men in gay porn magazines like Honcho and Torso, their sweaty bodies, big cocks and hot asses tempting him from the page. “When VHS became more prevalent, I found out so many great films were available that I only see in the glossy gay magazines. I was fairly young at the time, and could not afford to buy porn, but I found a place in the West Village in New York City where you could rent them. I remember scouring through the binders of rentals to find the hottest films. Over time, I kept recognizing a familiar logo of a glass falcon, which was the early logo of Falcon Studios.” One film that had a big impact on him was The Other Side of Aspen, particularly its orgy scene at the end. “Many of the films I had seen before were good, but they did not have the sexual energy of this scene and movie. I think it still stands up today. And Al Parker ... he was my idea of the perfect man. Super good looking, great body, that beard, hair and his beautiful big cock. He was spectacular in my eyes.” Coming from one of the most accomplished directors of the last decade, that’s high praise. No wonder Falcon Studios Group continues to make its mark as it plans to celebrate its 45th year in business with a full year of events, promotions and celebrations. The studio will kick off the festivities in mid-October. The schedule is still being planned, but at least one big event is expected to take place each month for the next 12 months.

“Falcon defined what gay porn was at the time and what gay sex could be. For many people, it was a guidebook to what they could do sexually and opened a world that was previously private and taboo, bringing gay sex out in the open to the men who craved it.” — Tony Dimarco, director

“Falcon also set forth standards and practices in filmmaking that are still used to this day—starting with the 8mm film reels, then advancing to the feature-length movie. Ironically, now by doing self-contained scenes, many studios are going back to the 8mm film reel style that Falcon pioneered. To me, Falcon was the pinnacle of the gay porn studio and what I loved the most about gay porn—the sexy beautiful men, hot bodies, big cocks and hot sweaty sex.” Dimarco is excited about the big two-part feature that comes out in October: Wild Weekend Parts 1 and 2, which is about a group of guys coming to San Francisco during Pride. “We filmed the movie in the city were it all began for Falcon. It was great that we were able to do that. I think the film journeys back to the roots of what made Falcon a known brand, intertwining story and sex to create intriguing erotic content. I’m very proud of this film and the actors in it.” October will also see the release of Deep Release, set at an all-male spa. It features the return of Brent Corrigan, along with other A-Team exclusives Ryan Rose, JJ Knight and Sean Zevran. November delivers a Thanksgiving blockbuster release, About Last Night. Dimarco directs a story about Knight, who is about to tie the knot. He celebrates his last night of freedom in Las Vegas with a night on the town alongside best man Corrigan. It’s a plot-driven feature that will release day and date on Comcast pay per view on November 23. “I think what makes a ‘Falcon movie’ a Falcon movie is in how it is filmed. I have filmed for many companies and brands over the years, and for Falcon it’s somewhat simple. The films usually have the best-looking guys in the business and are filmed in beautiful locations, but beyond that it’s the quality of the lighting and the filming that makes them stand apart,” Dimarco says, adding that great care goes into making sure that the lighting looks natural and that they always find the best angles to show off what the viewer wants to see. “Usually, the themes of the movies are lighter in tone. Some darker films were done in the past, but the current trends are to make them about lighter subject matter, keeping the sex happy, playful and fun but yet still dirty. ... I think that’s why the studio has lasted for so long, because the films that are put out are beautiful to look at and they are consistent and hot.”

Getting Religion Elder Sorensen of MormonBoyz

T

his month’s cybermodel is 20-year-old Elder Sorensen from MormonBoyz.com. You might also know him by the stage name of Peter Pounder or as Peter Sorensen. Elder Sorensen has become one of the most popular models at MormonBoyz and his ongoing drama of grooming and initiation is now up to its 25th chapter. As his storyline progresses, the mysterious group known as The Order has taken a special interest in Elder Sorensen. They have great plans for him, but only if he can successfully navigate his way through a series of ritualized trials and tribulations required of all boys chosen for the priesthood. Should he succeed, he’ll be welcomed to enter into the covenants necessary to join The Order. But should he fail ... Well, that’s just not an option.

How did you get started in porn?

I’ve always been a horny guy and I got a laptop from a friend, so at 18 years old I decided to join Chaturbate. While doing that I started applying to porn studios as well and within three months I was on my first flight ever to shoot with MormonBoyz.

Do you have a day job?

After high school I began doing porn work and camming. But I also worked at a property restoration company learning a few hands-on skills and I worked at a sales company learning new skills, too. I’m currently learning about more facets of the adult industry so that I can be involved more behind the scenes when I’m not shooting. Also, I still do handyman type work and have old sales clients who call so I do a little bit of everything at the moment.

Something fans don’t know about you?

I started jerking off before I could actually cum. I would hump my teddy and it would feel great until one day something happened. I turned on my light to find glue ... Glue on my teddy. [laughs]



Are you a gamer?

I own a PS3 at the moment and have always liked shooting games, but find that I like most genres. I don’t play it much at the moment, but when I visit my best friend I’ve been playing Dying Light and Overwatch on the PS4 non-stop. So it looks like a new console is in my future.

Do you have any pets?

I had a few pets as a child. I started with fish then moved on to frogs, a pet crab, a ball python, a Kenyan sand boa, hamsters, and rabbits. I even took in a pair of robins once. But now I have CJ, my family beagle. He’s 11 years old. I was so happy the day I came home to his wagging tail, and we have been best friends ever since.

Dude, Where’s My Affiliate Program?! It’s right here, thanks to the man behind Manhunt

often thought we should be doing things differently, but it was usually too late to change the process— or because of technical limitations, those ideas weren’t feasible,” French says. “In a startup company, anything is possible. It’s been fun being able to think outside the box and create an affiliate program and membership sites exactly the way we want.” For Camacho, signing French was key: “One of my secrets of success while at Buddy Profits and now at Dude Dollars is actually quite simple: Have an affiliate manager that loves what he does, loves the products he is working with and loves to help our affiliate partners. Ewan fulfilled that role perfectly. His role now is managing our entire program, but he is building his team to have similar values and passion for these relationships.” French notes they are looking to grow the team and the number of websites within the affiliate program by potentially acquiring existing sites, launching their own sites and/or forming partnerships with existing sites. “Some people in our industry believe the affiliate market is dying, but that is not what we are witnessing. We strongly believe if you keep your focus on affiliates and treat them right, they will continue to be a significant source of revenue in the long term,” he says.

fter returning to Online Buddies Inc., an international leader in online gay dating, CEO Hector Camacho was tasked not just with revitalizing Manhunt.net and Jack’d, but also with expanding its portfolio of products and services—especially in the gay porn marketplace. “The founder of Manhunt, Jonathan Crutchley, has always been unapologetic about the fact that Manhunt is an adult brand—and understood the synergies between dating and porn,” says Camacho. “Through my experience at Buddy Profits, where I helped grow its portfolio of gay membership sites from 12 to more than 40 successfully, Jonathan was confident that re-entering this market was a good investment.” So Online Entertainment LLC’s new gay affiliate program Dude Dollars was launched, with its first website— ColbysCrew.com, the new studio from the company’s first exclusive model Colby Jansen—scheduled at press time to debut around late October. “We knew that the gay porn market was saturated and had some stiff competition, but we also knew that consumers have an appetite for quality and diversity. Anyone can shoot amateur porn—so that’s not the direction we wanted to pursue. Our first major accomplishment was landing an exclusive partnership,” says Camacho, noting what followed was evaluating the market and preparing a vision for the site. “We also knew that the long-term goal would be to build a network of sites under the Dude Dollars program. And, while [Managing Director] Ewan [French] has initially been focused on launching Colby’s Crew, I have been working on additional partnerships and acquisitions to grow the portfolio soon thereafter.” French said that launching the affiliate program was the easy part, aided by experienced designer Donald Campan (“he has a great eye for design”) and a talented tech team. The more time-consuming part, he says, was launching the first membership site—but being involved in all aspects of production to some degree has also been a rewarding process. “I’ve always wanted to work in a startup. In the past when I was working for other companies in the adult industry, I’ve

“Looking into the horizon, the plan is for Manhunt to evolve past the hookup space and become the one-stop shop for everything adult: hookup, porn, cams, sex toys, etc.” — Hector Camacho

“We have an incredible team of staff who genuinely enjoy what they do, and this is reflected in their work. Our affiliate manager is often responding to requests late in the evening and on weekends because he genuinely cares about the affiliates and wants them to succeed. Our production guys often work extremely long days, sometimes with back-to-back shoots, because they are passionate about what they want to do and only want to deliver a perfect product. That is the difference we can offer.” As for the content strategy, French stresses the importance of doing lots of research to find out what the market needs—then doing your best to produce a product that is exactly what those surfers are looking for. “I don’t believe in trying to provide something that will appeal to everyone, otherwise you end up pleasing no one ... listen to what the market is telling you. Not every site will be a winner. If, after exhausting your marketing efforts, a site still isn’t performing the way you need it to, move on and focus your energy on something that does convert. In the long term, everyone will be happier.” Camacho stresses he has worked very hard over the past nine years to build solid relationships, partnerships and friendships. “I have learned that it is a small industry and that you should never burn bridges,” he says. “We help each other whenever we can, we give each other advice and share in our successes. This has been instrumental as we build a new brand—we can’t do it alone, and are excited with the number of friends who have reached out already.” And the connection to Manhunt—which pioneered gay online hookups—will prove invaluable, on both sides of the new initiative. “With millions of Manhunt users at our disposal, we will have an early advantage with amazing traffic. Not only through the hookup site, but also through our porn blog ManhuntDaily.com. With access to member data, we are also able to gauge what types of content the general gay porn consumer has an appetite for, and we will use that knowledge as we expand our portfolio,” Camacho says. And for those fans wondering, the answer is yes—Manhunt is still around. “The truth is that over the past few years, former Manhunt leadership just didn’t know how the product should evolve and be competitive; and we lost relevancy and market share as a result,” Camacho says. “That is where I come in.” Manhunt is currently undergoing a progressive rebranding—initially focused on upgrading its infrastructure and features focused on hookups, which has been its single core service. The site recently launched a new “conversations” platform and “match” feature that has increased member interaction and engagement, Camacho says. “Looking into the horizon, the plan is for Manhunt to evolve past the hookup space and become the one-stop shop for everything adult: hookup, porn, cams, sex toys, etc. In the past few years, we have not fully embraced who we are as a brand. Instead, looking forward, we will be unapologetic about what our members do on Manhunt—yes, they fuck! But in addition, we will provide them with multiple platforms and services to ‘get off.’”

Rock Candy Reboot

n

NakedSword brings back AEBN’s trailblazing gay studio feature in more than two years. Secrets and Lies is produced by NakedSword Originals, the original content arm of NakedSword, and helmed by acclaimed gay porn director mr. Pam. Tim Valenti, president of Falcon Studio Group and NakedSword, conceived and executive produced the film; Jack Shamama of NakedSword wrote the intricate script. Not a conventional studio itself, NakedSword has successfully created original content and independent features that stretch the typical definition of gay porn and aim to engage audiences both physically and mentally with entertaining storylines—albeit, not taboo in nature like Rock Candy. Paying homage to the studio’s beginnings, Secrets in some ways picks up where Rock Candy left off by playing on forbidden family dynamics and taboo desires. According to the team at AEBN, the new Rock Candy feature is less dark and brooding, more modern and light, with a lightness that sets it apart from previous releases. Taking place on the Ridge Family Farm, Secrets and Lies is beautifully shot with bright, gorgeous cinematic moments both indoors and out and features cousins and uncles participating in very non-familial activities. NakedSword aims to do the Rock Candy line justice while at the same time moving the needle forward by adding an element of genuine light heartedness and chemistry that is sometimes missing from today’s taboo-themed content. “Rock Candy began as an experiment to try and fill in content gaps across our platforms,” explained Matt t’s been four years since AEBN released its Gleason, senior content manager for AEBN. “There was greater demand for this taboo content than was available first original gay erotic feature, His Mother’s at the time.

But the creatie team says fans shouldn’t expect Rock Candy to stick to the same themes that made it for the studio’s typically off-limits religious and popular or to become another version of NakedSword Originals. Tim Valenti said, “Rock Candy will carry on forbidden attraction themed films. Perhaps for this by tackling controversial or taboo themes but moving forward in more varied and creative ways not seen before. reason Rock Candy captured the imagination of both gay and straight audiences though the content Rock Candy will continue to be an experimental line while maintaining the highest level of quality production and standout performances by the industry’s biggest and best performers.”  was 100 percent male-on-male erotica.

Rating: AAAA

He’s a man of few words, a hunk of muscle with a smooth tan bod and a beautiful big, thick cock. Brad Banks doesn’t smile much either, which makes the action hotter (it comes across more authentic). But if you watch closely, a smile breaks out every so often—like when handsome Quentin Gainz goes down on the stud: “Fuck yeah! Fuckin’ dick’s rock hard!” They share a laugh, and Gainz continues to smile as he gets fucked, lighting up the camera (“Fuckin’ railing me right now!”) even when his face is buried in the bed. After some hot lube stroke sounds crackle, they squirt simultaneously. Brad flip fucks with fellow beefcake Ivan James, also packing a big piece of meat. “You must be hitting his prostate,” says the filmer as James’ dick disappears inside Banks’ hole. “He’s hard like a rock!” Two solos are just as fun: Matt’s big dick lets out a doozy of a load, making sweet sounds as it lands on the leather couch. “That was a big one ... fuck!” he marvels. “It was backed up, man.” Cute Allan Lucas is a little nervous at first, but by the end his eyes are fixated on the camera, his smirk an acknowledgement that he has us under his spell. He lets out a pre-load early before stroking his uncut dick to full release. —Brady Jansen

Idealistic Tennessee boy Andy Banks has just arrived to Los Angeles after being recruited by a prestigious law firm. A swanky apartment, car and credit card are at his disposal ... but there seems to be something strange happening at the office, starting when Banks catches boss man Adam Russo corralling lawyer Billy Santoro in by his neck with a belt—soon forcing the muscle man down on his dick. He fucks his underling silly, giving a wicked wink to the wide-eye voyeur at the end. Banks soon submits to temptation in the form of jaded, cocky lawyer Nick Capra—who dives in for a kiss before fucking the newbie’s face.

marriage crumbling, Banks submits to Russo—first joining him as they watch two fallen angels fuck in front of them (smooth top Jay Johnson reaching around to stroke hairy Vittorio Naxos’ cock as he bounces up and down), then by submitting his holes to the devil. The casting of the smooth, light-skinned Banks is perfect, his appearance a perfect contrast to the influential evil around him.

Hard at Work STUD FUCKERZ

Director: Bruno Bond, Steve Cruz, Tony Dimarco and Christian Owen Cast: Trenton Ducati, Christian Wilde, Ryan Rose, Tommy Defendi, Marcus Mojo, Mike DeMarko, Trevor Knight, Dean Flynn, Jaxton Wheeler, Blu Kennedy Category: Uniform

Rating: AAAA

A licensing deal with Falcon Studios Group has enabled this foreign-based label to collect some hot scenes revolving around work lust. Fans may be familiar with some of the scenes, but the all-star cast makes it a worthwhile collection of content filmed from 2009 to 2014. Things get started with a Hot House Backroom scene as big-dicked Trevor Knight gets excited by a 12 percent quarterly gain—and the sight of ginger jock Blu Kennedy, the two soon swapping sucks before the Knight takes control: “Want my dick in there?” he asks as he teases the smooth stud’s ass. “How bad you want it?” Next up, photographer Tommy Defendi (shaved smooth here) takes advantage of underwear model Marcus Mojo during a photoshoot in Office Affairs (“Almost good enough to eat,” he says as he stares at the tan jock’s fuzzy butt). Mike DeMarko gets manhandled by big and beefy Jaxton Wheeler in Auto Erotic 2. “How much can you take?” asks the alpha, spit dripping from DeMarko’s mouth. “Breathe through your nose ... make it nice and sloppy.” Wheeler gulps up DeMarko’s monster before fucking him. Christian Wilde gets rough with Ryan Rose in Guard Patrol (“Show me those pretty eyes,” he says as he fucks Rose’s face), while Trenton Ducati needs a cure for his burning ass and constant boner from doc Dean Flynn in Malpractice.

Personal Touch PRIDE STUDIOS

Director: Uncredited Cast: Tex Davidson, Dolf Dietrich, Matt Stevens, Alexander Greene, Justin Beal, Isaac Hardy, Jessie Santana, Bryan Cole, Davey Anthony, Alejandro Fusco. Category: Jocks

Rating: AAAA

Where has Dr. Dolf Dietrich been all my life?! This tan, tattooed and tight-bodied stud towers over employee Bryan Cole, whose bad bedside manner has landed him in trouble. The hot doc wants to see how Cole treats patients, so he takes control

of the increasingly smitten assistant. “You never saw me with my shirt off before?” asks Dietrich, who soon leans in for a kiss and has his huge, stiff-as-steel dick deep down both of Cole’s holes. “All the way ... suck that dick, Bryan!” Cole gasps for air, then has his face buried in a pillow as he gets rammed on the examining table. Beefy doc Matt Stevens gets aroused by patient Alexander Greene, who needs his groin examined for pain. His massive uncut dick is too much for the doc to resist (“That’s a pretty big one there”), and he soon has a diagnosis. “Have you ever heard of blue balls? You need to ejaculate ... I can help you with that.” Just seeing Stevens’ hand stroking the huge piece is hot—and he soon gets it at both ends. Tex Davidson rescues injured hiker Davey Anthony, who worships the alpha’s massive meat as thanks; while Justin Beal and Isaac Hardy dip their dicks in champagne and suck it off during an arousing X-Mas. Jesse Santana also delivers a locker room fuck to beefy Alejandro Fusco.

Size Matters 2

LUKAS RIDGESTON/BELAMI

Director: Lukas Ridgeston Cast: Jack Harrer, Milan Sharpe, Vadim Farrell, Phillipe Gaudin, Dylan Maguire, Joel Birkin, Arne Coen, Paul Mekas, Manuel Rios Category: Bareback, Euro, Uncut

Rating: AAAA

In a feature packed with hung muscle power tops, it says a lot that a svelte bottom steals the show. Blond and light-skinned Milan Sharpe has a ridiculously big dick that stays rock hard throughout—even when he’s riding some equally impressive cock. When he sits down on Arne Coen in the lengthy, flip-fuck opener, his steel rod slams up against his own stomach so hard and fast that it repeatedly makes some loud “thwack” sounds (also look as they clasp hands as Sharpe gets pinned to the mattress). Then while bouncing up and down on Jack Harrer (That smile! Those eyes!), Sharpe’s dick flies back and forth, slamming the sides of his legs (and watch him flash that cute smile, biting his lower lip in pleasure). Meanwhile, Joel Birkin and Dylan Maguire get romantic by candlelight, kissing as Birkin strokes their two rockets together—their foreskin sliding against each other. They suck each other before Birkin buries his big dick inside the bottom’s hole (so deep it disappears). Scruffy haired Paul Mekas enlists the services of sex expert Manuel Rios to get some tips, feeding his huge, bushy tool to the muscle man (the one condom scene); while Phillipe Gaudin gets his holes filled by man-of-his-dreams Vadim Farrell, whose massive pecs and dick captivate the bottom— who gets a goopy facial, one of many in these five scenes. — Brady Jansen

Webmaster Access brings tech leaders to Amsterdam

FEATURE

T

by DANMILLER

he international tech community came out in force for the 12th edition of Webmaster Access Amsterdam, which was ushered in by a pair of opening events on September 15. Adult digital professionals from more than 50 countries began gathering at the DoubleTree by Hilton Centraal Station for four days of networking, dealmaking and education set against the gorgeous backdrop of the capital city of Netherlands. Early-bird registration, sponsored by Pussycash, was brisk on the first afternoon as a diverse group of executives got reacquainted with the cozy property that seems tailor-made for the industry’s original webmaster show, which this year was presented for the third time by BitterStrawberry. As the sun began to set on an unseasonably warm, 80-degree day, Webmaster Access attendees made the scenic walk to Hannekes Boom, the casual bar and grill situated right on the canal that played host to the second annual Beer & BBQ sponsored by EroAdvertising. Billed as “the best place in Amsterdam,” Hannekes lived up to its reputation again as show-goers soaked in the waterfront view while doing laps to the open bar and generous buffet spread of brats, hamburgers, hot sausage, salad and fruit. Among the first-timers in the crowd was Alex Duke, a native of Ukraine who lives in Moscow who this week is pursuing his dream in Amsterdam as he

promotes his new site BangLovers.com. Duke, the business development director, said he built a free, community-first portal “where visitors matter.” Meanwhile the head of LeadBit, Alsu Khashanshina, mingled in the bar, discussing her affiliate network and handing out her business card to new contacts. On the other end of Hannekes, Wilson Tong, the founder and fairs director of the Asia Adult Expo in Hong Kong, also made the rounds for the first time at Webmaster Access. His objective was simple: “I want to find out what people think of the Asian market,” said Tong, whose trade show in late August is the only adult event of its kind in Hong Kong. The U.S. contingent already made its presence felt at Hannekes as American personalities such as adult star James Deen turned up the volume. Deen said he was in town for meetings regarding his newly launched hardcore site, Analized. com, as well as TwistedVisual.com and his burgeoning James Deen Cash affiliate network. One of James Deen Cash’s themes is “no one knows porn better.” The lively Beer & BBQ got everyone well-lubed for the official Welkom Party, sponsored by CCBill inside the incomparable SkyLounge on the top floor of the host hotel. “This show has grown into such a great presence in the market,” said Gary

Jackson, managing vice president of sales for CCBill. “It’s one of the best shows in Europe and it was great to kick off the show last night as we’re launching CCBill Pay, our new wallet. We’re launching it here and we’re really excited about that. It’s going to change the way we do business.” CCBill Pay is the newest part of the company’s FlexForms system, which allows its clients’ customers to join sites, buy time or check out their cart with a simple login. A buyer can store credit card info and currency choices to use again on any CCBill site using FlexForms.

Fresh Meet

The next day one of the main attractions of the first full day of Webmaster Access did not disappoint as the Meet Market packed in an overflow crowd. Industry-leading firms took over the Meet Market, presented by Etology, with previews of their latest products, innovations and services. “This is my second year here and I love the show—it’s one of my favorites,” said Jeffrey Rosenzweig, VP of operations for SegPay, which is based in Coral Springs, Fla. SegPay unveiled the soft launch of its new gateway product in Amsterdam for merchants who are just looking for gateway services. “It just seems like the next logical step for us as a payment service provider,” Rosenzweig said. “As more and more merchants are able to get their own payout it makes sense for us to just be able to offer them gateway services.” Speaking of launches, ModelCentro was at the Meet Market promoting its MC Profits affiliate program. “We have 70-plus models but we are adding new models every week,” said Andrea Fioriniello of ModelCentro. “These are the most converting websites that we have. They are unique websites. They are unsaturated and that is most important for affiliates.” Igor Komarenko, the chief marketing officer for the Ukraine-based Aurora Global, was among the international executives holding court. A heavyweight in Eastern Europe, Aurora Global specializes in dating and webcam offers with 15 years in the space. Komarenko said his company is building a product that will “help us to better monetize customers from dating offers on the webcams.” He explained, “We are doing full integration of these companies. We don’t just give a white-label solution. We make full integration in the member’s area, full billing integration with one click, everything.” The range of companies exhibiting at the Meet Market represented every aspect of the online ecosystem.

Messidoro, account manager for mobile affiliate network Mobidea, said she traveled from Lisbon, Portugal. Mobidea also has offices in Luxembourg, Romania and Israel and is planning to open one in Mexico. “Our offers are both mainstream and adult,” Messidoro said. “We started in 2013. With CPI we just started this year. This year we’re working to improve, get better offers, more geos, better payouts. It’s very nice.” Andrew Kelly, senior manager for Germany-based call center Zwei Lowen, came to the show for the first time. “We’re looking to get into this segment of the business,” said Kelly, who is originally from Scotland. “We provide a lot of moderators for dating chats, but mainly we’re a normal customer service call center. We offer telephone support, email support. … Everyone is so friendly here I must say. I’m really surprised.” Ivo Delli Colli, sales manager-pay sites for the Montreal-based Adult Force, compared his platform to an adult Netflix. “If you’re looking to enjoy good, quality premium videos, we have it all,” said Delli Colli, whose blue-chip brands under the Adult Force umbrella include Brazzers, Reality Kings, Mofos, Digital Playground, Twistys, Playboy Plus, Wicked Pictures and Pornhub Premium. “Basically we run some of the biggest offers in the world for adult paysites.” The Netherlands-based team from Kiiroo enjoyed a big presence at Webmaster Access—among those in attendance are Director of Sales Frank Kok, Communications Manager Ashton Egner and Customer Relationship Manager Maki Sugimura. Kiiroo, which specializes in interactive sex toys, stands on the cutting edge of teledildonics, which is widely considered the future of the live-cam market.  “We just want to bring everyone together with our devices,” Sugimura said. Egner pointed to Kiiroo’s Virtual Sexology, a sex therapy program from Badoink VR that integrates with Kiiroo’s Onyx for haptic feedback, as their newest product. “What’s going to come next we can’t say yet,” Egner said with a smile. The day started with Epoch’s Soccer Madness, the latest stop on its worldwide Soccer Tour which this year was contested at the TOG Amsterdam Voetbalvereniging Tot Ons Genoegen Soccer Club about 20 minutes from the hotel. The soccer gods blessed the game with partly cloudy conditions in the mid-70s as an enthusiastic group of Webmaster Access attendees took the pitch just after high noon. Orchestrated by Epoch VP of Sales of Marketing Harmik Gharapetian, the game featured two squads of eight players—the green > 11.16 | AVN.com | 45

team vs. the orange team—all decked out in Epochbranded soccer kits. The festivities continued into the night as Epoch left nothing to chance in celebrating its 20th anniversary with a gala at the nearby Sea Palace. More than 600 Webmaster Access revelers packed the Cantonese-style eatery, which is an Amsterdam landmark as the first floating restaurant. Speaking of winning teams, a parade of gorgeous models wore orange soccer-inspired shirts with the No. 20 on the back and black tutus as they greeted guests and danced the night away. The bash went well past midnight and party-goers received a parting gift: a black soccer-inspired Epoch shirt with No. 20 on the back. Nice touch, guys.

The international theme of Webmaster Access came into focus September 17 during a spirited opening round of seminars featuring adult industry experts from around the world. In a first for adult’s original webmaster conference, the educational program spotlighted key global centers of commerce such as France, Germany, Eastern Europe, North America and the host country, Netherlands. Sponsored by Affil4you, the seminars showcased a multinational group of executives representing more than two dozen companies. Kenny B!, the founder of Your Paysite Partner, led the opening session titled “Land of Opportunity: Making the Most of North America.” His panelists included Julie Larson, independent digital marketing expert at JuicyAds; Remi St. Maur, sales director at TrafficStars; Lee Robinson, senior publisher account manager at Exoclick; Brad Mitchell, founder of MojoHost; and Jonathan Buckheit, CEO of FriendFinder Networks. The group discussed the differences between buying and selling traffic in North America compared with European markets as well as other insider tips for how to do better business in the U.S. and Canada. “The prices [for traffic] in the U.S. in comparison to Europe probably in terms of volume

30 to 40 percent higher volume so you’ve got to be careful when you’re buying in North America because if you have a campaign with a high budget you can spend it very quickly,” said Exoclick’s Lee Robinson. “You can find out in a few hours you can spend at least a thousand dollars. JuicyAd’s Julie Larson said, “data is everything and everybody knows that and it’s been like that for the last couple years.” “Don’t be afraid to test mainstream offers on adult traffic,” Larson added. MojoHost’s Brad Mitchell said, “no matter what your testing just start small.” The Eastern Europe seminar—titled “Building a Foundation”—played to a standing-room-only audience as Alex Osminin, the Ukraine-based CEO of TrafficHunt, joined Serbia-based Vladimir Jelic, VP of Quantox; Mugur Frunzetti, the CEO of Romania-based Studio 20 Live; and Alsu Khasanshina, the head of Russia-based LeadBit. YNOT owner Jay Kopita, moderated the session. The topics ranged from local customs and billing strategies to unwritten rules for business practices. The next panel, “Navigating Germany: Learn What It Takes to Prosper in Deutschland,” generated just as much interest as Webmaster Access attendees were packed to the walls for the meaty one-hour session. The Germany speakers included Andy Wullmer, CEO of SexGoesMobile and SGM Pro; Ines Peterson, sales manager for Affil4you; Oliwia Kaluzynska, account manager at Exoclick; Patrick Friedrich, CEO of eCardon Payments; Lars Bleck, CEO of MailValueProfits; and moderator Yannick Ferreri, head of business development for Porndoe.com. Petersen said Germany is a good market with a strong economy—the world’s fourth largest to be precise, while Friedrich noted that “consumer behavior is very honest.” Wullmer said fetish genres work well in Germany—amateur is especially popular. “Berlin is the most perverted city,” he revealed, citing the bankable track record of extreme niches such as gangbangs. Germany turned into a tough act to follow, but the locals who drove in for the Netherlands panel proved up to the task. Saturday’s largest panel in terms of speakers included Jacco Kwakkel, product manager for YourChoice. nl; Garion Hall, CEO of AbbyWinters; Jason Collins, VP of business development for Verotel; Bram Bolt of DatingCash; Leon Djiksman, sales director at Telefuture; Patrick the Hun, founder of the Hun’s Yellow Pages; and moderator Norman Hauwert of LeaseWeb. Fueled by excellent chemistry between the panelists who all knew each other going in as well as strong audience participation, this session produced more laughs than most panels. But the guys still talked a lot of substance, discussing at length issues such as banking, the country’s perception as a tax haven and the business potential in a country with a relatively modest population of 16 million. The French panel, titled “France Factor: How to Increase Your Bottom Line in Western Europe,” featured Laurent B., CEO of Affil4you; Maxime Colas, business development manager for Paysite Cash; Patrick K., owner of xLoveCam; Louise Lang, owner of Planete Live; and Jean-Claude Artonne, founder of Terpon. Alex Lecomte of JuicyAds moderated the session, which brought the lightning round of panels to a fitting close. The panelists discussed legal roadblocks, carrier issues, labor regulations and just plain business etiquette for dealing with French people. “The labor law in France is very strong and protecting the workers so much, much more than the employer,” said Paysite Cash’s Maxime Colas. “They are much more protected than the employers.” Lecomte said, simply put, France requires a little different approach. “The language point is so important, so if you outsource your services in some countries where the French is not that good then you lose credibility and they won’t really believe you the same way or have the same faith in your product if you send email with some issues, some mistakes.” Louise Lang, a cam model for 16 years on EuroLive.com, said French customers are “very loyal.” Affil4you CEO Laurent B. said the French people are “a proud people.” “And they like to be considered,” Laurent said. “Addressing them first in French is always nice. Some of them may speak good English but they like to be addressed in French. Even hello or something. We do a lot with affiliates. You have to speak French, proper French.” Jean-Claude Artonne agreed.

“What I know is that France for me is more the language, the French language,” Artonne said. “I think we should consider France as something bigger than just France the exact country and talk about how there is a market in Quebec; there is a market in Benelux. … France I think is more about languages and to develop business in France is just to say we should focus on the language.” The activities at the Doubletree by Hilton also included the GAYVN Lounge, sponsored byFlirt4Free, Supermen, Buddy Profits, Mr. Man and CCBill; the GAYVN Happy Hour; Speed Networking, sponsored by Terpon; and the Female Empowerment Lounge, sponsored by Chaturbate. As the afternoon turned to evening, the AVN Meet Up got underway as a prelude to the dinner hour. By 8 p.m. a couple hundred VIPs headed to the Traffic Dinner at Geisha Lounge ahead of the night’s main event, the GFY Party at the SkyLounge on the top floor of the DoubleTree by Hilton.

Sector Specifics

The state of the industry took priority on September 18 as leaders from every major tech sector graced the seminar stage. Executives representing dozens of blue-chip companies shared insights on the live cam community, dating sites, mobile traffic, media buying, gay trends, tax regulations and virtual reality content at the DoubleTree by Hilton Centraal Station. The “Mobile Makeover” panel kicked off the day with SexGoesMobile CEO Andy Wullmer; Tommy Johnson, senior affiliate manager for BitterStrawberry; Ler Khodaverdy, VP of operations for Twistbox; and moderator Brian Elkan, traffic director at Affil4you. The panelists discussed the ever-increasing role social media sites such as Facebook plays in mobile traffic as well as the profitability of niches. Speaking of traffic, JuicyAds Global Publisher Strategist Jimmy “Wizzo” Foreman moderated the “Traffic Matters” panel, which featured Macarena Cenalmor, VP of client services for Mobusi; Remi St. Maur, sales director for TrafficStars and xHamster; Thomas Skavhellen, chief brand officer for PlugRush; Nelson Nascimento, media buyer for Mobidea; and William Soares Pinto, business

development manager for Hubpeople. “In the traffic market one of the biggest changes we’ve seen is the explosion of mobile,” Foreman said. “If you don’t have a mobile strategy in place, you’re in trouble, because that’s where the world is going. That’s one of the biggest trends of the last few years that we have to recognize and address.” St. Maur revealed that xHamster.com has more than 30 million visitors per day and he’s witnessed a shift: “We have more mobile traffic than desktop now,” St. Maur said. The group also addressed the ongoing issue of fraudulent traffic. “If anyone tells you they have 100 percent real traffic they’re full of shit,” JuicyAds’ Foreman said. “Everyone has a certain amount of bots, but it needs to be substantially less. … If a publisher comes in and has a high level of fake traffic we switch them to a CPA; if their traffic converts we switch them back.” Mobusi’s Macarena Cenalmor noted, “the carriers are changing from one-click flow to two clicks.” Meanwhile Mobidea’s Nelson Nascimento suggested it’s a tall order to forecast the future of media buying because “it’s so dynamic and things change.” “The only thing we can do as companies is diversify,” Nascimento said. This year Webmaster Access organizers debuted the GAYVN Lounge and GAYVN Happy Hour in response to popular demand, so the “State of Gay” panel was a natural addition to the educational program. Moderated by the president of Bright Guys Inc., Douglas Richter, who is also the lead consultant for Supermen. com, the panel included Gary Jackson, managing VP of sales for CCBill; Jeff Wilson, head of the traffic acquisition at Flirt4Free; Shaun Loftus, owner of JockMenLive; and Alex Lecomte of JuicyAds. CCBill’s Jackson noted the gay industry is an “amazingly loyal market.” “If you look at the gay community we’re very brand loyal,” Jackson told the audience. He recalled the progressive marketing campaign that Absolut vodka implemented as it rolled out its product in the U.S., gearing its advertising toward the LGBT consumer in an effort to reach a wider audience starting in 1981.  “It picked up and vodka became the drink of the mainstream,” Jackson said. “We think branding is wildly important,” Jackson continued. “If a company steps up and supports the community and us as a segment, then we trust that brand.” Not surprisingly, the subject of “mobile” also became a talking point. Jackson said the seismic shift is “generational.” “The younger gays are much more mobile savvy, usually juggling three or four devices. So that checkout has to be incredibly mobile, incredibly touch friendly.” JockMenLive’s Shaun Loftus pointed out there are a low percentage of chargebacks on the gay side. “These guys pay,” Loftus said. “They’re low risk.” The group delved into features that are driving users to convert into paying customers, such as trials and premium services as well as the importance of social media in a company’s marketing strategy. “Would you hire a media buyer or a social media manager right now?” the moderator Douglas Richter asked. “I would hire a statistician that does analysis,” answered CCBill’s Jackson, who noted he’s seen “a huge push on just testing content, testing checkouts and doing a lot more analysis.” JuicyAds’ Alex Lecomte suggested gay marketing is much more community-oriented so it’s tailor-made for social media. It’s never a bad idea to try something new, so Flirt4Free’s Jeff Wilson said his company for the first time this summer began uploading content to tube sites, which is “way out of anything we were doing before.” Less than three months later, Wilson noted Flirt4Free already has attracted 1000 subscribers and a couple million views based on their tube site marketing.

Without question one of the main attractions on Sunday’s schedule was the Virtual Reality panel titled “Real Possibilities.” The all-star group of experts included Anna Lee, president of HoloGirlsVR; Todd Glider, CEO of BadoinkVR; Todd Spaits, CMO of YanksCash; Stefan Geisler, co-founder of AmazingContent.com; Fabian Grey, founder of AliceX.com; and Jean-Claude Artonne, co-founder of Terpon. Stewart Tongue, owner of EngineFood.com, moderated the anticipated session that unfolded in front of a standing-room-only crowd. “There’s been a lot of trends in this industry, but for me with VR, I’m all in,” said Todd Spaits, who left a hiking expedition in Spain to be on the panel.  Badoink’s Todd Glider said there is “no manual” for how to shoot VR, and there won’t be. “It’s very DIY now—from the camera rigs to even the models,” he said. “There’s no formula yet.” Anna Lee, who is also directing for HoloGirlsVR, told the audience “it is the fastest evolving method of shooting that I’ve ever been a part of.” JC Artonne, whose new Swiss venture offers the first fully integrated, plug-and-play 4K 3D-VR camera, said, “at the end of the day, VR will be a community.” Artonne predicted the “Holy Grail” for VR content is attracting female consumers. “Most of your customers are men, but if you can bring women to consume live content, maybe you will double or triple your revenue,” Artonne said, noting that his camera will be waterproof in 2017. Another standout session during Sunday’s robust program was the dating panel titled “How to Compete and Win in Today’s Online Meet Market.” Masterfully moderated by Revolution Force CEO Sean Christian, the seminar featured Paul Groen, business development manager for Advidi; Jenny Gonzalez, chief revenue officer for Dating Factory; Kristell Perez, director of affiliate marketing for FriendFinderNetworks; Wacek Warzawa, head of global acquisition for WhiteLabelDating; and William Soares-Pinto, business development manager for Hubpeople. Revolution Force’s Christian said that “user targeting is the most important thing inside of dating.”

With another standing-room crowd, Christian led the group through several lively exchanges on topics such as handling chargebacks, finding the right price points on different geos, testing creative flows and increasing user engagement. Wacek Warzawa of WhiteLabelDating told the crowd his company’s entire approach is based on LTV, or lifetime value. Meanwhile, FriendFinder’s Kristell Perez said her company has found success with gamifying interactivity with its users. “Users gain points by interacting with other members and that’s worked really well for us,” Perez said. “It’s a trend in the industry to try to get the interaction with the other user. With points there are things they can collect.” Christian worked the entire meeting room, injecting personal anecdotes from his 15-plus years in the business and even at one point playfully sitting on the lap of an audience member in the front row. “One of the most important things inside of dating is the first click,” he noted. Perhaps it was fitting the final panel of the weekend explored the booming live-cams market, as it’s arguably the fastest growing sector of adult entertainment. “Yuval [Kijel] used to say, ‘if you stop 10 people on the street maybe one of them knows what live cams is, but now it’s a much larger pool of people that knows live cams,” said Flirt4Free’s Wilson. Flirt4Free’s head of traffic acquisition was joined on the stage by Liz Rekevics, senior marketing director for Streamate; Jim Austin, head of business development for StripChat; Mugur Frunzetti, founder of Studio 20 Live; and Livia Choice, an award-winning cam model for ImLive. Laszlo Czero of Streamate moderated the seminar, which covered a lot of ground in the last hour of the educational program. The talk quickly turned to model-to-consumer dynamics, as the group agreed the top models give users more personal attention. “The models that I’ve seen that are successful are talking to every single customer,” Wilson said. Jim Austin added, “It’s a career. Models that take a short-term approach are not going to be successful. … Every user wants to be treated like an individual.” Livia Choice, who in six years has become one of the most popular models on ImLive, said, “Don’t forget we are also human.”

Streamate’s Liz Rekevics noted the level of professionalism among models has increased and that “one thing that all the cam sites share is we share models and we share users.” Livia said, “there are guests that buy the fantasy of sex, but there are also guests who buy the fantasy of love.” She receives marriage proposals almost daily. Frunzetti said when cam models leave one site and go to another it’s “always about their experience, not always about money.” In a first for Webmaster Access, a special panel called “Understanding Regional Tax Laws” led off the morning lineup loaded with tips for best practices. Moderated by Daniel Morris, a global expert in multi-national business structuring, tax optimization and asset protection from Morris + D’Angelo, the panel featured a strong quartet of speakers. They included Joost Zuurbier, the CEO of Amsterdam-based Verotel who rode his bike to the hotel; Emil Darbinian, a tax consultant for Prospectacy Limited; Gregory Dumas, the president of GEC Media; and Jean-Claude Artonne, co-founder of Terpon. Dumas has built several companies from the ground up, imparting some words of wisdom about personnel decisions. “If you’re serious about your business the first people you want to hire is your accounting team,” Dumas said. “A finance person is a key person in helping to grow your business.” That evening, Webmaster Access roared to a conclusion with the Lingerie Party at Jimmy Woo sponsored by BitterStrawberry, BongaCash, TrafficJunky and Paxum. The very last event, the Sponsor Brunch on the next morning, saw attendees off until the next conference—Internext 2017 in January in Las Vegas. |

ver since the legendary Johnny Keyes electrified viewers in Behind the Green Door and Sex World back in porn’s “Golden Age,” black male performers have been an in-demand presence in porn. But how do the men who work in the industry feel about the opportunities and challenges that they face? Read on for comments from a dozen of today’s top performers and fan favorites. To supplement these interviews AVN asked other veteran African-American professionals in the adult industry for their opinions on the top male performers and the state of the business they work in. Director LT was behind such top-selling Elegant Angel lines as Big Black Wet Asses, Black Booty Worship and Naughty Black Housewives, and also works as talent himself. His movies are currently distributed by Pure Play Media. LT got right to the point. “The top black guys? LT, Prince [Yahshua] and Lex. Why? Because we sell movies. Period.” Something of a renaissance man, Tee Reel went from working as talent to producing-directing to being the first African-American man to start a fully bonded talent agency within the adult industry. “There are always going to be legends in the business like Sean Michaels and Lexington Steele,” he said, “and there are a handful of guys that have solidified their names in the industry, like Prince Yahshua, Flash Brown, Jon Jon and myself, for example. These are guys that have good reputations for strong performances, good chemistry with talent, and giving solid scenes. “There is a secondary rise of go-to guys as well, like Chris Cock and Jack Blaque and some up-andcoming outstanding talent like Isiah Maxwell.” And what about the women who work on screen with these men? We got some enlightenment from 11-year industry veteran Misty Stone. “The top black performers as far as male talent in my opinion,” she said, “are Prince Yahshua, Jack Napier and Lexington Steele. They bring more to the table as performers than anyone else I have worked with. They not only perform, they put on a show, something the viewers and fans can grasp onto. “These guys are extremely professional, giving us girls—their co-stars—a pleasant sexual experience (very respectful) on camera while portraying this beast across the screen for the viewers. This is why

they continue to stay in high demand over many years and have lasted for so long in this industry.” Stone went on to point out that for many African-Americans, male and female, porn work is not always a level playing field. “I would describe the state of the adult industry as progressing over the years,” she said, “but still a bit racist and unfair. We continue to improve as far as more opportunities slowly for black performers, but for some reason it is still not completely equal. “For example, I have worked 11 years for my rate, and as a black performer I have been challenged many times about my worth. For some reason companies feel no need to pay a black performer as much or equal to a white performer. It’s just very difficult to continue to make this stand on our worth as black performers if we just go for whatever. I know many black female performers whose anal rate is equal to my B/G rate. “I just want us to know we are worth just as much if not more. There has to be a change.” Director LT echoed her concerns, more bluntly. “How do I describe the state of the industry? Racist as ever.” Asked to expand on that, he said, “Let’s see, where do I start? I will make this short and clear, because I can ramble on all day. I’ll say this: How many black directors that are in the business right now that are working? You can count them on one hand. There’s me, Lexington [Steele], Mimefreak, Prince [Yahshua] and Dreadneck. “That’s pathetic. You mean to tell me out of everything that’s being shot in L.A., Florida and Las Vegas, that only five black directors are working? That’s enough said right there.” Reel cited the decline in DVD production and online piracy as major problems. “In regards to black male talent, the industry is in a rough position. A lot of the production companies that are not around have caused many black male performers to make their exits from the industry because there just aren’t enough production companies shooting and it makes it more difficult to have a career as male talent. “Ironically,” he continued, “throughout the rise and fall of the industry, niche-based content— specifically interracial and black-on-black product—

created with attractive talent in a quality setting, has always made money. “It’s just very unfortunate that many of the production companies that shot interracial or blackon-black content weren’t able to maximize their revenues with it or became victims to tube sites and pirating. Some of them are just putting out horrible product and in time the consumers turned their backs on them.” For two decades Mr. Marcus has been one of the most prominent stars in the black and interracial genres. “When I started in ’94,” he remembered, “there was me, Julian St. Jox, Sean Michaels, Devlin Weed and Jake Steed. A few years later came Lexington Steele, Brian Pumper and Justin Slayer. Today there are brothas who work in the industry like Flash Brown, Prince Yahshua, Isiah Maxwell and Jon Jon. “If you’re working on features, doing specialty scenes, maintaining a social media presence, really nurturing and developing a career, then it’s highly possible to operate and maintain on the level of a top guy in the porn world.” Of those interviewed, Mr. Marcus took the most optimistic view of the industry. “When I look at the adult industry in 2016 I see opportunity. Even though times have changed, the industry has managed at its core to stay the same. Young people who have a strong appetite for sex dominate the porn scene, while creative types can lead the way by creating a sexual path that’s followed by performers and fans. “Supporting the part of the industry that is still strongly inventive and imaginative is key—from the camera operator to the editor and everything in between—the entertainment value of porn is ripe for developing and influencing with sex as the inspiration. I’ve always believed that there are infinite possibilities.”

Sean Michaels

Home State: New York | Age: 58 | Started in 1989 | Twitter: @SeanMichaelsEnt | Website: SeanMichaels.com What are the most challenging aspects of your job?

Fighting through the stereotypes about both the industry and black men and women in the industry has been a career-long challenge for me. While I would be the first to tell you that it has been a great job, it is a job. There is so much that goes on behind the scenes that is so time-consuming and, quite frankly, more than a little tedious. There is also a great of time spent on marketing and promotion that is frequently unpaid efforts. This includes hundreds of appearances I have made over the years at your (AVN) yearly show, the various conventions and other events. While entertaining, these appearances can be draining. I genuinely enjoy meeting my fans so I put a great deal of energy into those situations and letting my supporters know I appreciate them very much and am happy to help make their sex lives better to some degree—which will be discussed in my upcoming biography due out next summer.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Knowing that my scenes have given a great deal of joy to a very large number of people worldwide, and that there’s no question that there is a lot of fun to be had working in the adult industry. That being said, I do take my work very seriously, because at the end of the day it is a very serious business as well. And it is nice to hear from my fans of many different ethnic backgrounds, cultures and religions that those efforts are so appreciated, especially because it’s been almost three decades of work put into an industry that’s much needed as an outlet and release for many people, both women and men.

Who are your biggest influences?

Some of the directors and producers that inspired me were Alex DeRenzy, Ron Sullivan, Christian Mann, Nina Hartley, Roy Karch, Fred Lincoln, Lex Steele, John Stagliano, Rocco Siffredi, Jack Baker, Maestro Claudio, Mason, Mike Adams, Mike Quasar.

What is the most common misconception about adult?

That it is all fun and games. As I said, we have a lot of fun but there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes that can make a big difference between an OK scene and a really great one. I know that my own productions, we do everything we can to make sure what goes on in front of the camera comes across well in the finished product.

What do you think of the way IR product (black male/white female) is marketed?

It seems like it is just a product of the audience. Good and ill, our society has a number of stereotypes regarding race relations and, not surprisingly, those spill over into the adult industry. There is clearly a large segment of our audience that loves this genre and we do what we can to reach out to them.

What barriers, if any, have you encountered working in the adult industry?

FEATURE

What inspired you to pursue a career in adult film?

I was inspired to get into the adult industry because I saw and felt a real need for change as far as how a man should approach and have sex with a woman on screen and off. But most of all I was inspired by the need to change the way black men were seen and dealt with when I entered the industry in 1989, because the roles that I saw for black men back then were in my opinion very demeaning and stereotypical.

Like many other working industries in America there is racism in the adult industry as well. I have surely had my share of racist situations in the adult industry in the past, like many other black adult performers, both male and female. Basically saying “we don’t sell as much in the adult markets” as other nationalities.” So I decided to deal with the racism as diplomatically as possible and—trust me on this yo!—it wasn’t easy at all, in addition to doing my job as an A-list male performer at the same time. But that also fueled my fire to travel to Europe, educate yself regarding the business end of the industry, and choose to work smart, hard and strategically with my web partner to build my brand worldwide.

Mandingo

Home State: Mississippi | Age: 41 | Started in 1999 | Twitter: @fred_nice | Website: FredNice.com What inspired you to pursue a career in adult film?

Strength inspired me. When I made this decision to enter the adult industry, I was at a crossroads in my senior year in college. I had set myself on such a high pedestal that when I didn’t achieve what I had set out for, I could not handle no longer being in that limelight. So in order to maintain, I wanted to attach myself to something with immediate power. I chose adult film. I was also a quiet fan of the industry. In the early ’90s, it was Playboy’s Night Calls and their cable videos. Also Hustler magazines and this specific scene with Ray Victory, one of the great early black pioneers, had me very intrigued about the adult industry. As a communications major, I learned a lot about journalism. I had this idea of mixing African history and sex; so the name Mandingo was perfect. I then later chose the name of my brand as FredNice; since people like to use my actual name Fred along with Mandingo. My older industry colleagues are more comfortable saying Fred, while the younger ones prefer Mandingo. So my studio, FredNice, is a actually a little word play on my true first name. So how did I go about it? Well a lot has changed, and a lot has stayed the same. After entering the industry in ’98 and after a few successful productions, I emailed the various companies some production photographs, and the rest is history. A very nice history, if I might add. I came from being a fan to actually entering the industry. I made some strides, and I’ve received awards from the industry; to even having a relationship with a major star to then us getting married. I’m really not the boasting type, but I am really content with who I am and where I am. A young man from a small town, who made it big in a tough industry, and I’m very proud of that.

What are the most challenging aspects of your job?

When I started out, just trying to maintain focus was the challenging part. It’s not easy. I compare it to professional sports. I was on quite a few larger sets in the beginning, so to focus and getting into a zone. Similar to sports, music and acting, focus is key. Nowadays, just mixing an adult life while being a family man can be interesting. After entering adult, my only serious relationship is with a woman from the industry, so we both understood each other’s day. Like entertainers of all genres, celebrities, and sports figures, having a family and navigating a normal life while having an enhanced career can be interesting. I recall Howard Stern talking about this. I compare entertainers of all levels—adult, music, sports, acting—as meta-human. We’re human with a little bit of something else. That’s why we watch in amazement. That’s why with entertainers and celebrities there’s such acclaim and high regard.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

I get to be an example. It’s what I set out to do initially in college. I just chose a sexier route to go about it. When you have a platform, you must represent, especially being black. It’s reality. This is not a United States reality, this is a global reality. This is a reality from our own global history. It runs deep. With our new technologies, you read about black people from all over saying the exact same thing. The work is not yet done. Blacks from all over have now achieved the global non-judgmental “thing.” Now, we need to clean up some of our own. There’s still black on black crime in the U.S. There’s still oppression to this day by our own in Africa. To be able to do this job, to travel and to enjoy the perks of this job, is a gift. And I’m fully aware that there are those who aren’t fortunate to have the gifts that I’ve been given. Just being able to walk and to eat and to go outside and to see and touch and feel is a gift that a lot of us take for granted. I see it every day when I travel. I’m thankful for everything. I’m thankful for my industry embracing me.

Who are your biggest influences?

Major sports figures, actors, musicians and President Obama (I voted for him

twice even though I’m Republican) influence me quite a bit. It’s real cool when I have some of their exact same interests. I do notice I tend to root for the very confident and cocky ones! My family of course, from L.A. to Houston, through the south to Atlanta, and up north to Chicago.

What is the most common misconception about adult?

That it’s easy to do. It’s not. That’s why now, more than ever, there needs to be more appreciation for adult. With our newest technological advancements, I’ve noticed quite a few consumers taking a lot of what we do for granted. With these tube sites taking revenue away, there needs to be more unquestionable financial support for actor/actress producers. If porn stars are like mutants, then tube sites are the sentinels. Those who know this story know that didn’t end well. It’s the same for porn, it’s only a matter of time. If you love porn, then financially support it. People like Lance Armstrong ask for donations, raise millions, and you see how Mandingo (Continued on page 56) 11.16 | AVN.com | 55

Mandingo (Continued from page 55) that turned out. If your favorite star has a donation link, a clip site, direct payment option, or a membership link; that is how our industry will continue to thrive. We go to work, eat, support our families, and pay bills just like everyone else.

What do you think of the way IR (black male/white female) is marketed?

There’s been talk resurfacing again about racism in the adult industry. The marketing of IR porn has come a long way. As of today, the presentation is much better now. It used to be very stereotype driven. That’s what the public wanted at the time. Nowadays, aside from specific genres, the desire is no longer mainly focused on stereotypical types of images. That change is from amateur to professional. We have evolved. In that aspect, we are all one and the same. With the whole “IR” thing, that is a reflection on us as a society, globally. Before the year 2000, we were all racist. Everything was race related. It’s the reason N.W.A was so successful. People talk about Trump being racist. In the ’80s and ’90s we were all still racist. I honestly believe that Obama’s presidency and this

new generation has helped to heal and educated us all. Nowadays, the packaging and desires have become more pleasant and appealing. But a lot of our own societal issues are still there. If a black man is involved in a production, a lot of special care or handling, labeling and categorizing is involved. That’s due to our own global insecurities when it comes to race. That’s why they say, if you have a platform, then represent to the best of your ability.

What barriers, if any, have you encountered working in the adult industry?

By the time I got in the industry, the barriers had already been taken down by the likes of Sean Michaels, Julian St. Jox and Ron Hightower. There was a very solid all-black genre at the time. All I had to do was just be me. That’s another reason why I decided to get into adult entertainment. At the time, there weren’t any stereotypical boy-next-door collegiate types. Now here I go stereotyping. Everyone, black and white, has a distinct category. So I said what if I bring my type to the industry? What if I try this mix of African history and sex? So I went in.

Nat Turnher

Home State: New York | Age: 40 | Started in 2002 | Twitter: @NatTurnher because it gave me the opportunity to get into something without worrying about any criminal aspects.

What are the most challenging aspects of your job?

I face the same challenges now after 14 years in the business. I still get butterflies before a scene—pre-game jitters, you know? I worry about how my body will react, how I’ll perform with the girl, etc.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

In the early part of my career it was the girls, of course, and visiting countries around the world. But now it’s about getting the paycheck to pay the bills and to feed my son. Yeah, it’s certainly a job with extra benefits [the girls], but it’s a good way to earn a living and that makes me feel good about myself.

Who are your biggest influences?

I’d have to say Justin Slayer for obvious reasons. He gave me my start and I’m very thankful for that. And then I’d met Ice La Fox in the business, who is my nine-year-old son’s mom. Photo from Nat Turnher’s Instagram

FEATURE

What inspired you to pursue a career in adult film?

Well. I’ve been through a few non-positive things in my lifetime. I’ve spent time in jail, which made me contemplate what I really wanted to do with my life. I wanted to do something legit. Getting into adult really wasn’t an idea that I had but then I ran into Justin Slayer. We talked and he thought I could do well in the industry. The next thing I knew I was flying out to California. It was cool

What is the most common misconception about adult?

That we’re not “normal” everyday people because of what we do as performers. It gets very frustrating to be asked all of the time about how I live and if I do stuff like normal people? I’m constantly battling the “taboo” of adult. I fight for that every day.

What do you think of the way IR product (black male/white female) is marketed?

Well, let me give you an example. I did a scene with a young lady and it was cool. Then I was on set again with her and she refused to work with me and said she doesn’t do black guys. She made a complete about face. The producers totally accepted what went on. I mean, they only cared about her. This is an example of how the movie was just about starring her and the black dude is just a prop. Producers need to respect the black performer more like they should. We need to be recognized for more awards and be featured in more ads. Whenever there’s a big show you see billboards with just white women. Where are the black performers on those billboards?

What barriers, if any, have you encountered working in the adult industry?

There have always been doors that are closed to me just for being black, but in this industry there have also been many that have been opened for the same reason. I take the good with the bad. I admit that sometimes I feel cursed about the decision, mainly because of relationship problems that come up because of what I do, but at the end of the day, I’m at peace.

Home State: New Jersey | Age: 46 | Started in 1996 | Twitter: @LexSteele11 | Website: LexingtonSteele.com years, I remain in the highest tax bracket. That being said, the rewards are not all monetary and the rewards no longer provide the financial security enjoyed between 2000 and 2010. But the greatest reward has been the people that have been my friends, compatriots, brothers and sisters for the last two decades of my life. My male friends know that I’d go to war with them any day. My female counterparts know that I’ll protect them every day. The ultimate reward has been to find the woman I would marry in 2015 [Savana Styles].

Who are your biggest influences?

As a performer, I have had two major influences in my career. My good friends for life, Mark Davis and Mr. Marcus—both of these men taught me how to do this job. I have fed myself and my family based on the performer skills imparted upon me by these two gentlemen. As a director, my biggest influence was Mike John—he taught me how to shoot video camera—and Kevin Moore, my co-director/ partner at Lex Steele Productions. He has had a tremendous impact on the quality of my brand, taking it to a higher level. As a producer, my most influential people are my mentor James Alexander of West Coast Productions and my compatriot and confidant Jules Jordan of JJV. I have known both of these men since 1998; we are competitors, collaborators, and friends.

What is the most common misconception about adult?

The most common misconception about adult, historically for me, has been that doing interracial scenes will damage or curb the careers of some female performers. This may be true for some, but certainly not most. Additionally, the misconception that black male performers actually care if they don’t is equally profound. Most of us don’t knock the hustle of our female counterparts. If what she does does not include black men for whatever reason, it is her business, her body.

What inspired you to pursue a career in adult film?

What inspired me to pursue a career in adult media and continues to inspire me every day is the opportunity to be a paid professional athlete. Most of my heroes over my life have been athletes, educators or broadcast journalists. I have been able to live my life over the last 18 years as an athlete, a “professional sex athlete.” This is how me and my brand have historically been regarded by my supporters.

FEATURE

What are the most challenging aspects of your job?

The most challenging aspect for me as a male performer is maintaining the level of performance I have been known for. Well over a decade ago, I was named AVN Male Performer of the Year 2000, 2002 and 2003. I have been in the AVN Hall of Fame since 2009; that’s longer than most of my contemporaries’ whole careers at this point. The challenge is still being worth the exorbitant rate that I charge, to be quite honest.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

The most rewarding part of my job has been the lifestyle I have maintained since launching Mercenary Pictures in 2003 and launching Lexington Steele Productions in 2013. Even in these most challenging 58 | AVN.com | 11.16

What do you think of the way IR product (black male/white female) is marketed?

IR product has been an integral part of XXX media, practically since its inception. The marketing of such has remarkedly progressed over my tenure, in large part by what [the late] Christian Mann had created in his early years as president of Video Team (for those that can remember that era). That being said, Sean Michaels is the foundation of IR marketing and I have patterned my brand to reflect the image he created. There have been derogatory marketing campaigns that I personally would not co-sign or endorse, but others have done well with. This is the business of capturing fantasy on video. IR XXX is an integral part of our collective, cultural sexuality as Americans. Other countries do not have the historic issues that still exist today in America. This is what fuels the interest in IR sex and has bolstered the commercial viability of my product and brand. Today’s IR campaigns rival that of the highest Lexington Steele (Continued on page 60)

What barriers, if any, have you encountered working in the adult industry?

There are barriers I have encountered and moved well beyond over the course of my career. But none of these barriers were challenges that I have been unwilling to undertake. Launching my first company,

Mercenary Pictures, provided a number of barriers. These challenges were not necessarily racial, as many would believe. Getting a buyer to take your product had been a business issue based on money, trends and shelf space. That is a tangible barrier to encounter based on logic and economics. Another tangible barrier is the lack of feature production inclusion of black performers. The greatest feature director of our time is Axel Braun. He casts me in his heavily budgeted productions as often as he can. What he has done must not go unnoticed. Personally, I am a member of the [Screen Actors

Guild] since 2008. There have been surprisingly few roles extended to me over my career, so I know there are even fewer roles out there being filled by my black male counterparts. But as I said earlier, in many ways XXX will always directly reflect what society is asking for. This is a particular barrier that runs congruent with Hollywood casting practices. But, perhaps, it is in the writing of the feature productions. As a black performer, director, producer and distributor, perhaps writing my own feature production is the answer. Getting it sold is the ONLY barrier.

Shane Diesel

Home State: Nevada | Age: 53 | Started in 2003 | Twitter: @Shane_Diesel What inspired you to pursue a career in adult film?

For sure it was the opportunity to make money—that was my number one priority. I was already laying pipe to tons of girls so I figured why not make money doing it? Just so happened everything fell into place right when I decided to try it out. Had no idea it would take me to the level I’m at now, becoming a household name and having a replica line molded after my dong.

What are the most challenging aspects of your job?

I would have to say the most challenging is finding female talent that can handle my size! It’s almost always a problem on set. You would think most female porn stars would be able to handle my size but it’s always 50/50 if it will fit. So that can be difficult since a lot of time is spent preparing for shoots ahead of time.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Finding female talent who can handle my size and actually enjoy it. Then getting paid to have sex with them is the most rewarding, and of course being recognized in public also.

Who are your biggest influences?

My father has always been the biggest influence in everything. He taught me so much when he was alive and I still hear his words of wisdom today.

What is the most common misconception about adult?

The most common misconception is we all really have sex like that in real life with our partners. Sure, sometimes we go over the top with it but most of the times we are passionate and romantic with our lovers. Second would be we are all rich and that’s so not true for most performers, unless you have a big name then it’s possible but not always the case.

What do you think of the way IR product (black male/white female) is marketed?

It’s fine. I feel if people are buying them, then that’s what they are looking for. I have seen some that were just plain derogatory and uncalled for but then it’s up to the performer to put a stop to it if he feels certain things are uncalled for.

FEATURE

What barriers, if any, have you encountered working in the adult industry?

The only barrier I would have to say would be lack of creativity. I’ve suggested many things to some of the companies I have worked for in the past and most seem stuck on copying another company that is having success at what they are doing. Instead of coming up with something new they will try to replicate what’s new and hot. Other than that there has been no barriers. Photo of Shane Diesel courtesy of Digital Sin 60 | AVN.com | 11.16

Prince Yahshua

Home State: Illinois | Age: 46 | Started in 2003 | Twitter: @PrinceYahshua | Website: PrinceYahshua.com What inspired you to pursue a career in adult film?

I was doing porn in my hometown of Chicago for two years before I actually came to Southern California. The girl in question that I was doing a lot of this porn with was a black girl by the name of Malibu that actually had this big dream of going to this place called California. ... To make a very long story short, I took a photo shoot of her and I sent it to 10 to 15 of the major companies at that time, and also with those pictures I sent an eight-minute video of her and I ... fucking. To my surprise every last one of these companies hit me back. Zero Tolerance, Third Degree, Black Ice, West Coast, Evil Angel—what was the other one back then? Red Light. But all of them pretty much said the same thing. They were, like, “Hey, beautiful girl; we really like her look. But unless she’s physically here in Southern California we have no use for her. We get beautiful girls who look like her all the time.” ... I read all the emails. The last one was by a company called West Coast Productions, which is all black, by James Alexander. It pretty much said the same thing. But at the end of that letter [he asked], “Who’s the guy in the video fucking the girl?” [Alexander said], “If you can actually do that in front of me with a girl here, I think I may have a job for you.” Three days later they flew me out there first class to Chatsworth ... they put me on a three-day trial basis and after my third shoot they signed me to my first $100,000 deal.”

Who are your biggest influences?

There were actually two. Somebody current and up-to-date that people still know of was Justin Slayer. I’d seen one of his trailers that he did at Evil Angel and like myself I saw that he wore Timberlands in some of his scenes. And I said, “Hey, that guy wears the same boots I wear.” ... [I thought], “What the fuck did this guy get so famous and I’m sitting here in Chicago?” Yeah, it was kind of funny. My second contract that I had out in California is when I signed with Justin Slayer International. And right after I signed the contract, he exhaled and said, “Wow, I’m glad that’s over. ... Everybody really wanted me and you to go against each other but now that you’ve signed I don’t have to worry about that because you work for me.” The other person who gave me inspiration is an old legend by the name of Ray Victory. He’s one of the originals from the early ’80s.

What are the most challenging aspects of your job?

Being black is the most challenging part. The business today is still so racist. To navigate your way through the business without kicking anybody’s head inside out and maintaining your dignity and your cool is the most challenging part. I’ve done it very, very well. ... I remember when I first got in the business West Coast [said], “Just give us a list of girls you want to be with and we’ll hire them all.” So I gave up a 10-page list and for four girls on this list, [they said] “We’d love to get you these girls but we can’t. ... They don’t do interracial.” And I said, “Inter-racial? Please, expand on that. What do you mean?” They said, “These are girls in the industry that don’t have sex with black men.” I was kind of stuck for a minute. I said, “You’re telling me there’s people in a business that because of somebody’s color won’t do anything with that person?” I never heard of anything before like that in my life.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Let me just make it about who it was supposed to be about when I first started. Let’s make it about the fans. Pleasing fans. If you guys are happy, I am too. Without your fans there’s nothing. ... I always give love to the fans.

It seems there are fewer ethnic titles out now. Do you see that as well?

Absolutely. What the companies and directors will tell you is that there’s not a market for black-on-black product. I was told that when I was at Justin Slayer International ... I ended up putting $2,700 of my own money in my own movie, called Black Out, and that became my highest grossing movie to date. When you hear things like that, these are things that are not accurate at all. These are things that company owners have decided to say ... so they will not have to shoot ethnic people. What porn has done today is taken us from each other. What do I mean by that? I just saw Jenna Foxx—I was so excited to see her, and well as her with me, and she ... said, “Prince, why am I so excited to see you?” And I was, like, “Because these companies don’t shoot us with each other.” Now it’s almost taboo to shoot black people together. But you want me to be with every little white girl ... you want to see the big black guy with a small white woman.

that’s what they want to see—a black man and white woman fucking on film. They want the male to be ghetto and her to be prissy then fucked silly. It goes all the way back to the slavery days. Just how the white master wanted to fuck the black slave but didn’t want anyone to know about it. It’s forbidden fruit … so people want to see what they can’t have in their porn.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

What barriers, if any, have you encountered working in the adult industry?

The internet. Everyone nowadays thinks they can be a porn star and they really don’t understand what it takes. The piracy, the racism is at an all-time high and people always trying to cut corners on their budgets, which makes them want to lower your rate. The money, and being known in parts of the world I’ll never get to physically visit, and being able to provide for my family.

Who are your biggest influences?

God, my father, Malcolm X, 50 Cent, Martin Lawrence, Jamie Foxx, Diddy.

That all we want to do is fuck and party and do drugs. Now that does happen, but everybody isn’t the What inspired you to pursue a career in adult same. I’m one of the different ones who is very private, film? humble and focused on the betterment of my career I didn’t. It pursued and found me.

Fighting for the best perception of a black male performer and getting a higher rate. White males are promoted more, are given more contracts and win more awards than myself or Prince Yahshua, for example. Black talent could work with the same woman, or work twice as hard, but can’t get the Male Performer of the Year award. We’re exposed more, and even wanted by the fans, but black-on-black porn is barely shot. And now new black women are coming into porn and saying they won’t work with black guys ... like WTF? We already have many white female talent saying they don’t do IR, or waiting a year or two until they’re desperate and then they’ll do black guys. The business is crazy now, but so is the world and I love them both even with the ups and the downs. I’ve also had to bounce back from almost careerending surgery on my penis. Some people think I wouldn’t be able to work and perform the same, but I’ve come back better than ever.

Like most guys I was inspired seeing the girls, but mainly it seemed like it was challenging to do so I figured that I could give it a shot and see how it goes.

What are the most challenging aspects of your job?

The most challenging aspects of my job to me are working with new people, ’cause you never know what to expect—and making sure the scene is “good,” as in energy and chemistry.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

The rewarding part of my job for me is being able to work with someone I want and doing great work [and] getting hired again.

What is the most common misconception about adult?

I think the most common misconception about adult

is that it is easy. Most fans think that it’s like having sex at home but don’t understand the technical aspect of what’s required. They don’t understand that we have to have sex for the camera, not ourselves, meaning all positions have to be open so the camera can catch the penetration and see the girl. Also the pay—thinking we all make the same amount of money and that we are balling. At a certain point in time the money was very good, but many things changed over time.

What barriers, if any, have you encountered working in the adult industry?

Barriers I have encountered in this biz: not being able to work with every girl. Porn wise, if you are Asian, Mexican, Latin, Middle Eastern—anything other than African American—you’re not considered “IR” [interracial]. IR refers to only black males and females, so we are limited to whom we are able to perform with. There are many girls I’ll never get to work with because they may not ever do IR, so I have to work within a certain bracket of performers. So to me this is one of the biggest barriers we people of color face in this biz.

Flash Brown

Home State: Tennessee | Age: 35 | Started in 2011 | Twitter: @FlashBrownXXX Website FlashBrownProductions.com (launching in January) What inspired you to pursue a career in adult film?

During a modeling shoot in L.A., back in 2011, the photographer of the shoot approached me and suggested the idea of adult film. He commented about my “look” and of the lack of new, straight African American talent in the industry; he felt it would be a perfect fit for me. After researching the industry, a couple of months later I decided to pursue a career in adult film. Which led to my first booking with Dogfart/BlacksOnBlondes.com.

What are the most challenging aspects of your job?

Photo courtesy of Flash Brown

Separating the adult industry from my personal life. Maintaining a clear boundary between my business life and personal life. I have certain restrictions before any shoot: no sex, drinking, partying in order to perform at my best. And when the shoot is done, I learn to leave all of it in the studio. There are many temptations, of course, shooting with

these gorgeous ladies on set. Continually reminding myself that it’s my job and professionalism must be maintained at all times.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Obviously, it’s working with the most beautiful women in the world! Also, it allows me to see the business side of the industry. Getting experience on set and behind the scenes, having the director value my input and the process to get to the end product. This is particularly beneficial for me and my production company, Flash Brown Productions.

Who are your biggest influences?

Industry wise, it has to be directors Jim Camp, Mike Moz, Greg Lansky, Damien (Jeff) Cain, Jonathan Morgan and Alexander DeVoe. Performance wise, the legends: Taylor Wane, Mr. Marcus, Shane Diesel, Sean Michaels, Lexington Steele, Naomi Banxxx, Suave XXX, Ron Jeremy, Mick Blue and Prince Yahshua.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

I’m a simple guy but at the end of the day, I’m someone’s fantasy. And that’s awesome, to be able to provide people with some type of enjoyment or release ... It’s something that keeps me going. I genuinely love people ’cause everybody’s got a story.

Who are your biggest influences?

What inspired you to pursue a career in adult film?

I actually just got into the industry to supplement my income. I didn’t expect to be in the industry as long (12 years) as I have, to be honest!

What are the most challenging aspects of your job?

The stigma that anybody can be a male performer. It takes time and skill to be able to do scene after scene and still bring the same intensity and passion.

Well, let me start by saying that if it wasn’t for performers Shane Diesel, the late Sledgehammer and Sean Michaels—I wouldn’t be here! They took me under their wings and showed me the ropes when I first started in 2004 working for a few different companies. But Greg Lansky, by way of Blacked.com, was really able to get me to the next level and get people to see that I was a good performer. I can’t thank him enough for that!

What is the most common misconception about adult?

That we have issues ... family, mental [issues] or when it comes to addiction. And we are no different the general public; we just see life and our bodies differently.

What do you think of the way IR product (black male/white female) is marketed?

I think for a long time it was stereotype driven. It allowed the male performers to be pigeonholed and a stigma was placed on us—that we’re too aggressive or that we were a higher risk than our other counterparts. Companies didn’t want to make stylistic porn that was up to par with some of the white-on-white scenes. I feel like it’s changed in the last couple years and I like to think that Blacked.com had a lot to do with it.

What barriers, if any, have you encountered working in the adult industry?

Mainly that people don’t really know me. I’ve been in for twelve years and worked for a lot of companies but people think it’s an overnight success story. I’m professional and I treat this industry as such. Obviously the IR pay issue, when I know girls in the past (a long while ago) that said they wanted to work with me but couldn’t ’cause the company wasn’t willing to pay their IR rate. I also feel like there’s a disconnect between some talent and the rest of the industry sometimes. I went to AVN in my ninth year in the biz ... Nobody knew who I was, except the girls on the floor during the Expo. And I had people looking at me like, “Who the F... is this dude?!” And I’ll never forget it, Lisa Ann said ... “That’s Jason Brown.” I was ecstatic! That was one of the first times I felt a part of the industry.  11.16 | AVN.com | 63

One of my friends was interning for a small ethnic company in New York [WhoaBoyz.com]. He introduced me. The guy didn’t put me on camera right away. I started as help at these underground parties. ... They’d have these contests for the girls and do these live shows and they would ask for audience participation. The guys would say, “I can do it, I can do it” and they’d get there and they would fail. So they said, “Moe, you’re going to go up there this time and act like a fan.” I would come in and look like a regular businessman. That was my niche. They used to call me ‘The Suit.” ... My very first real scene was [shot] on the subway. And it went viral. ... I came out [to the West Coast in] January 2013. It was hard the first two or three weeks—I came to L.A. straight after the AVN show—and I shot a lot of content to get my name around. Rest in peace, Ron Ellis actually plugged me into Dogfart because he was very friendly with the director there, Billy Watson. ... He gave me a chance—we did two gloryholes before he was confident enough to give me a gangbang scene. ... I think my first scene was with Lucas Stone, before he had his stroke, and Jack Photo courtesy of Moe Johnson

Napier—it was five of us on one girl, and I held my own. And Billy Watson was shocked—“Who’s this kid? He’s able to perform.” They gave me a shot. I think my first boy/girl was with Riley Reid, and I was able to deliver on that scene.

Who are your biggest influences?

Jack Napier, he’s a good guy. ... I spent some time with him and his mother when he was in the hospital. He’s very genuine. Shane [Diesel], Sean [Michaels]. They’ve always been the motivation. ... And Wesley Pipes, he told me, ‘Keep going. If you want to do this you’ve got to keep the look, stay focused.’”

What are the most challenging aspects of your job?

Certain companies want us to be more rough or more dominating because that’s what type of scene it is. But I obviously have respect for women—I don’t abuse people in my personal life. Sometime that’s what the scene may call for, but it’s always something that’s mutual—it’s something that the girls want or something that they’re comfortable with.

A year flew by and I fell in love with the producers and directors that I’ve met, the conventions I’ve attended, and the women of course! I fall in love daily with them.

What are the most challenging aspects of your job?

Some of the biggest challenges I face involve the offcamera maintenance. I work out daily to stay active. I cook breakfast and dinner to avoid eating out too often. I read news article to keep up-to-date with everyone who I don’t see every day. Sometimes, trying to achieve these goals leaves you up late at night. Nevertheless it’s what keeps you going.

Prince Yahshua put me on my first production set a couple days after I told him, “I’m ready to cross over.” He’s mentored me since Day 1 and continues to mentor not only me but my peers as well.

I have cherished advice from Renae at New Sensations to Dion at Filly Films. They’ve known me since I was an intern five years ago and their advice has kept me in it this long.

or the last time, the International Lingerie Show opened its exhibit hall to representatives from the lingerie and pleasure products industry at the Rio Hotel and Casino. The spring 2017 show will move to a new location at the Westgate Hotel Las Vegas. Pleasure products took up a decent amount of real estate on the show floor, with many manufacturers showcasing their newest items, or supporting their distributors. Perennial favorite Vibratex once again had a booth, and wowed attendees with the Rechargeable Magic Wand and the Mystic Rechargeable. Eddie Romero explained that while the Rechargeable Magic Wand has been available for more than a year, it’s still a big hit with retailers and consumers alike. “The growth has just been phenomenal,” he said. “Our retailers tell us they just love selling it. It gives more than just two speed options, and is just another way for fans of the original to enjoy the Magic Wand.” The Mystic Rechargeable was announced by Vibratex earlier this year, and is now available and ready to ship, Romero said. The lightweight wand-style massager, which comes in black, offers six functions, but the real draw is its intuitive design. There are a total of three function buttons on the handle—one on the front and two on the back—so one can easily be accessed no matter who is holding the massager and no matter which position they hold it in. Romero noted the entire massager is coated in silicone over the ABS plastic body to give it a softer feel. The Rechargeable Mystic also comes with plug-and-play capabilities.

Adult distributor Eldorado had representatives from several manufacturers in the booth to showcase products and collections to buyers, including System JO, which recently debuted its Gelato flavored lubricant line. According to Eldorado rep Maria Lara, the Dancing Pearl Rabbit vibrator from Evolved Novelties was a hit with buyers. The rabbit-style vibrator has four beads that travel the length of the shaft as opposed to rotating around the middle. “People are really responding to this vibe,” she said. “It’s unique and really selling well.” The wall of Nu Sensuelle products was a standout at the Eldorado booth. In addition to its popular and powerful vibrators, Nu Sensuelle showcased the Partner Ring, a purple wonder with 20 functions, and the Pleasure Panty, equipped with a remote-controlled rechargeable bullet with 15 functions. Also eye-catching were the displays featuring upscale goods from Dorr, VeDO and Malesation. And many buyers also took note of the brand-new We-Vibe Sync and the Womanizer Pro, both carried by Eldorado. Entrenue, another longtime exhibitor of ILS, saw owner Joe Casella celebrating his 10th anniversary of owning the boutique distributor. The booth’s shelves were stocked with the latest in luxury and unique products, including the b-Vibe Trio—a slimmer version of the b-Vibe Rimming Plug, which is available in purple and black and boasts all the features and functions of its predecessor. Entrenue also was one of the exhibitors showcasing the new Sola collection from Blush Novelties. The new line features wellness and passion products, including the Sola Egg, a large egg-shaped massager that comes with interchangeable silicone sleeves in various shapes; and the Sola Sync Wand massager, available in purple.

Shots America was also on the show floor, showing off its topselling collections, including the Brown Collection—BDSM lines crafted on a creamy-looking brown leather—and the Vive line of massagers and vibrators with rose gold accents.  Xgen Products showcased not only a new booth for ILS, but also a number of new collections and products. The distributor is expanding its Superhero collection of panties by adding themed corsets, bustiers, bralets, panties and pasties. Also new in the booth is LateX Wear, which features thigh highs, panties, mini dresses and more in black or red latex. Fundies for Him and Fundies for Couples are boxed sets of novelty underwear such as the Choke the Chicken Thong or the Black Tie Tuxedo Set for couples. Speaking of sets, Xgen’s Bodywand Sets will soon include the 6 Pc. Holiday Bed Spreader and the 8 Pc. Under the Mistletoe sets, just in time for the holidays. In the Nalpac booth, Tracy Tinsley noted that the distribution company recently marked its 45th year, and celebrated with a warehouse show. She said the brands and products that received the most attention were on display in their booth for ILS. Lining the booth’s shelves were the new Midnight collection from Sportsheets, the Callie line from Jopen, BDSM products from U.K.based Rouge Garments and more. Other manufacturers impressing attendees included Femme Funn, which attracted attention for its new, extremely powerful bullet vibrator; and Impulse Novelties, whose Black Door and Closet collections have been a consistent hit for retailers and consumers. PHS International showed off its new Hearts Afire collection, which features pasties, clamps, cuffs, floggers and more in a blackand-red color scheme.  “We have an end-cap display that retailers really seem to love because it makes an impact without taking up too much space,” said company rep Crystal.  Another hit in the booth was the Be the Gift holiday campaign, which features Bijoux de Nip pasties that have a more ornamental feel to them in an effort to allow wearers to make themselves a gift to a loved one or partner.  Representatives from epi24, makers of the Womanizer pleasure product, were also on hand at ILS. The new versions of the popular product continue to impress buyers and consumers alike. For its final show at the Rio, ILS organizers were willing to try and shake things up a bit. The traditional ILS Fashion Show took place Tuesday morning during a breakfast for guests—the first time the event was held during breakfast for many years. But the early hours didn’t keep audience members from appreciating the designs on display. Menswear items from Cocksox—which is celebrating its 10th anniversary—were a hit with the crowds, as two male models showed off G-strings, jockstraps and more, crafted from mesh fabric, cotton and more. For women’s fashions, companies such as René Rofé showed off trends in lingerie sets (bras, panties and garters) while Aussie Cossie DareWear exhibited boudoir sets of robes and panties, Jackie G-String highlighted beautifully decorated intimates and Dynashape Intima featured sexy basics. And, as always, lingerie, accessories and menswear dominated

the show floor at ILS. Forplay Lingerie had a prominent space on the floor and impressed attendees with pop culture-related costumes related to Pokemon, Star Wars and more.  René Rofé, whose booth moved into the main show floor this time around, offered up some of its most popular collections, including the Cocolicious line, created by actress/model/web personality Coco Austin. Nipple accessories could be found throughout the show floor, with Pastease displayed its fun and flirty pasties in a variety of colors, styles and fabrics.  Washington, D.C.-based Tata’s Pasties made its ILS debut, showing off a collection of pasties in large and small sizes in everything from cupcakes to rainbows to bacon and eggs. Perennial favorite Shirley of Hollywood was also at the show, with the latest in lingerie trends available for buyers from all over the world.

It’s almost like every time you turn around, the creators of the Bodywand are saying, “We know just what you’re thinking!” and produce a new version to fill a void you might not have realized existed. The Bodywand 360 offers many of the same features and functions as its predecessors, but this time around it also has a rotating head. As if that’s not enough, it also comes with two attachments: a flicker head and a multi-tongue. An added bonus? The head can spin clockwise or counterclockwise.

Since its initial announcement about the Hex, LELO officials have claimed it is the first significant change to condoms in more than 70 years. In development for more than a dozen years, the Hex is a latex condom that boasts a different type of construction. LELO officials noted it was never the materials that were the problem with condoms, but rather the construction and design. The designers at the Swedish-based manufacturer were inspired by graphene, known to be one of the strongest and thinnest materials on the planet. Hex mimics the honeycomb structure of graphene, which allows the latex to mimc graphene. The texture is on the inside of the condom, which helps to prevent slipping and breakage.

Whizworx Cooks Up Hot Pocket Accessory for fifi

PLEASURE PRODUCTS

Whizworx, maker of the fifi male masturbator, has just released a new accessory called the Hot Pocket. Not to be confused with the delicious snack product, the Hot Pocket offers a way to add heat to the fifi stroker. “Ever since our inception, we’ve been working on coming up with a safe and effective way to add heat to our product,” said David Bramo, CEO of Whizworx. “We’ve tried insertable pads that have a battery attached and poles that heat up when you plug them in them in via USB.” Bramo said the team finally landed on a device that resembles the hand warmers that manicurists use. You insert the fifi, set your temperature (low, medium or high), and wait until it reaches your desired warmth. The Hot Pocket retails for $24.95 and can be purchased at GetFifi.com. The fifi stroker and its easy-touse disposable interior sleeves are available to retailers from several distributors. For more information, email info@getfifi.com.

CalExotics’ Embrace, Luxe Ranges Meld Innovation, Pleasure

CalExotics has two collections this fall that offer quality, performance and high-tech features to retailers and consumers. Embrace, the newest range from CalExotics, features pleasure ball technology, while Luxe features innovative touch sensitive pleasure control. “CalExotics prides itself on bringing innovation to the market. This is evident from our early days when we introduced our first solar-powered and rechargeable products,” said Susan Colvin, founder and CEO of CalExotics. “We put innovation first, and are extremely proud of our newest technology.” Within Embrace, CalExotics now offers its two most popular styles in new colors. The Massaging Rabbit is available in purple, while the Massaging G-Rabbit is available in pink (pictured). Both styles showcase rolling pleasure balls, which produce a rhythmic massaging action in the shaft or stimulator. From Luxe, CalExotics adds to its color palette, introducing ivory and brown styles.  “Luxe is at the top of our sales charts, selling out numerous times,” said Jackie White, executive vice president of CalExotics. “We added the two new colors to enhance the collection, giving buyers and consumers more variety.”  Luxe features a touch-sensitive technology. The deeper you stroke, the stronger the vibration, giving the user complete control. CalExotics has offered touch-sensitive products for years; Luxe is the next generation. To enhance the user experience at the retail level, CalExotics provides point-of-purchase displays that are free with qualifying purchase.  “This technology is impressive and to help close the sale we’ve created displays to give consumers the chance to touch and feel the products before they buy. From our experience this type of interaction increases sales,” said White. For more information, visit CalExotics.com.

Also in the line is the three-piece Booty Bumpers kit, a set of three graduated anal insertables made of TPE and fitted with flared bases for harness compatibility. Unlike traditional plugs, Booty Bumpers are thick, cylindrical and feature longer shafts for a deeper, fuller sensation.  “Booty Bumpers have been steady performers in the past, so we created an all-in-one training kit to give shoppers convenient selection at a value price,” O’Bryan said. “These kinds of kits are best sellers, and Booty Bumpers’ unique cylindrical shapes allow them to be enjoyed in a more ways than one. Variety and value are key for consumers and Climax Anal was created to provide exactly that.” For more information about Climax Anal and the rest of Topco Sales’ new releases, email info@topcosales.us.

Lovehoney Debuts Tokidoki at eroFame

Lovehoney has joined forces with tokidoki, a Japanese pop-culture brand with a name that means “sometimes”—to launch a range of whimsical designer sex toys. Lovehoney’s most popular products have been reimagined for a new collection, which will feature designs created exclusively for the tokidoki x Lovehoney collaboration. The result is a vibrant “kawaii” (Japanese for “cute”) range emblazoned with characters designed by tokidoki’s co-founder and creative director, Simone Legno. “We are thrilled to be working with industry leader Lovehoney and to collaborate on such an innovative range that promotes the importance of sexual health and overall well-being,” said tokidoki cofounder and CEO Pooneh Mohajer. The tokidoki x Lovehoney range features bullet, classic, clitoral and finger vibrators, as well as love rings, male strokers, and a product that embodies the “kawaii” spirit: the Unicorn Wand Vibrator. The most playful Lovehoney range to date, the collaboration is aimed at 18- to 30-year-olds who are looking to inject some fun into their sex lives. According to Kate Hodgson-Egan, Lovehoney’s international sales manager for the U.K. and U.S., “The tokidoki Pleasure Collection is like nothing else out there. The 18-30 market is key for us and we noticed there were high levels of interest in Japanese culture and Kawaii-inspired designs amongst this audience. This is the most design-inspired range we’ve had to date.” Hodgson-Egan added, “My personal favorite is the Unicorn Wand Vibrator. It’s not every day you see a unicorn’s head on a sex toy—it really must be seen to be believed.” The range launched in October at eroFame in Hanover, Germany.

fifi, the no-muss, no-fuss men’s sex toy from Whizworx, is introducing a new fetish/BDSMoriented model to its growing lineup. The Dominator was designed for consumers who have been looking for a BDSM and fetish-friendly sex toy for men. fifi customers have been using the male masturbator in BDSM play all along, a Whizworx rep points out, and now they have a style that was created just for them, with a sleek black exterior that will fit right into any dungeon or play room. Responding to requests for new textures, Whizworx has also given the Dominator a dotted texture on the inside that can be felt through the disposable inner sleeve. Inside and out, it was made to satisfy demands for something different. “It’s a little stiffer than the other models, which feels good in your hand,” says Whizworx CEO Dave Bramo. “The interior texture also enhances

the sensation.” Like the original fifi, the Dominator is adjustable, thanks to its Velcro fastener, and it uses disposable latex sleeves for easy cleanup. In the midst of a session, no one wants to think about cleaning out a sex toy after the fun is done. Like all fifi male masturbators, the Dominator is ready to go again after the user disposes of the latex sleeve. Also like the original fifi, the Dominator is the soul of discretion. Just toss it in a suitcase and no one will be the wiser. fifi also sells water-based lube along with disposable sleeves that can be purchased on a subscription basis in supplies of 10, 20 or 30. Dominator joins a lineup that includes the original fifi design, available in five colors, and a black faux fur model called the furfi. Retailers and distributors who would like to offer fifi can email contact@getfifi.com  or call (844) 385-9843. For more information, visit Getfifi.com.

Kheper Games Lights Up ‘Glow in the Dark Sex!’

Talk about mood lighting! The latest diversion from Kheper Games gives couples a new way to play with the lights out. The adult game creator is rightfully proud of Glow in the Dark Sex!, its first board game that completely lights up in the dark. In addition to the game box top, the game board, game markers and spinner will all illuminate a pitch-black room. Two players begin playing as they would in a normal board game. As they move around the board, they engage in foreplay, stripping, massaging and passionate kissing. When a player hits a “Lights Out?” space, he or she then decides if the couple will play a round in the dark. If they do, they turn out the lights and each take a turn spinning the spinner and advancing to the nearest

colored game space of red, blue or green. Foreplay actions change into more intimate activities while the lights are out. The first player to reach the end of the game board wins—and spins the spinner to select the winning game space. “We are very excited to be bringing this innovative concept to the market,” said CEO Brian Pellham. “We’ve heard nothing but rave reviews since we first introduced this item at the July ANME. Couples need new ideas to try and we are very impressed with our design team’s concepts and our vendor’s ability to execute this idea out so well.” For more details on this game and many others, email info@khepergames.com or call (877) 4263755.

Entrenue Secures U.S. Distro for Minna Life’s kGoal

Entrenue is the exclusive U.S. distributor of the kGoal, a pelvic floor exerciser made by the engineering team at Minna Life. “Minna Life has been a mainstay brand in our catalog for years and we’ve been fielding eager demand for kGoal since its debut more than a year ago,” Entrenue President Joe Casella said. “We’re pleased to finally offer our customers direct access to this revolutionary kegel exerciser and support pelvic floor fitness with a high-tech twist and some fun apps.” The crowdfunded Kegel exerciser synchs with iOS and Android to provide real-time feedback as users flex and follow fitness programs designed to strengthen their pubococcygeus (PC) muscles. A high-tech sex toy, the kGoal was one of the first on the market promising to promote pelvic floor fitness with support from an app-connected interactive training system. The smooth, bulbous device is equipped with strategically placed sensors that, when kGoal is inserted into the vagina, measure the force of users’ PC muscle contractions. kGoal then sends that information directly to its app and allows users to watch and follow their progress in real time.  The Minna Life team initially introduced the concept via a Kickstarter program and successfully exceeded their funding goal by 30 percent. Fans liken the device to a Fitbit for the pelvic floor.  To place an order, call (800) 368-7268, email info@entrenue.com or visit Entrenue.com.

The Shock Wave is one of a handful of pieces in the American Bombshell collection that is now available in red, too. Materials: Silicone Colors: Gun Metal, Cherry Bomb MSRP: $$$

This piece was molded directly from award-winning performer Shane Diesel and allows his fans to emulate and enjoy his manhood. Diesel is known for his massive penis size, and now this extender can turn any penis, dildo or vibrator into an exact replicate of his manhood, right down to the veiny texturing.

Gangbang and Orgies, Oh My

Jenna reappears in scene two, but is kept much more quiet with the help of black and pink bondage tape. Aubrey Star and Veronica Rodriguez take their time teasing and tasting her, when all of a sudden Xander Corvus and Alex Jones are making Jenna into a bound, cream-skinned Eiffel tower, creating art-worthy naked symmetry for the lens. The sculpture shifts into Xander and Aubrey on one side with Alex taking Veronica on the other of the trapped Jenna underneath, having just gushed all over the white, acrylic table below them. Everyone is exchanged until both men have tried each of the beautiful, nubile girls, and while Veronica and Aubrey get fucked the most, it’s Jenna who takes the loads. ºIn the final scene, Katerina makes an appearance with Aubrey and Veronica, opposite Danny Mountain and Alex, in an outdoor group session. It’s a slow-moving but heated scene with plenty of passion all around and drawn out make-out sessions with more focus on the girl/ girl action than the first two group scenes. Cinematically, this is a stunning piece of pornography. All of the ladies are naturally beautiful and minimally made up, directing the focus to all the right parts of every intense moment. With the men in great shape—and they have to be to deliver the performances they do—the eye candy is appealing to all genders looking for some beautiful, kinky group smut that is as tasteful and filthy as gangbangs and orgies can get.

T

he dialogue in porno can at times be hard to swallow. However, when it’s less than a 30-second satirical play on words and leads to the likes of Alex Grey, Jenna J. Ross and Piper Perri tag-teaming a silent Michael Vegas, it’s completely forgivable. The three girls begin gang-sucking the lucky Vegas and cheering each other on. At first, Grey seems to take the lead, and while she remains a vocal dominant, her horny co-stars are not afraid to command the action with each other. Dressed in identical lingerie, the gals keep their black knee socks on while tasting each other’s bits and pieces, narrating their orgy, and swapping in an out of coitus with the lone ranger.

T

he latest of four showcases with Jules Jordan Video’s first ever contract girl, Jesse, is lacking in firsts for the blonde beauty, but it makes up for it in enthusiasm and shine. Jules knows how the girls should look, and Jesse delivers with her ferocious spirit as usual. To create as much diversity as possible in a showcase that is missing the typical JJV staples of interracial and/or anal, Jesse utilizes her energy in some masterfully crafted smut scenes. First up is a three-way with Chris Strokes and the director himself. Jesse is dolled up in a lacy purple bodysuit and her ensemble isn’t complete without a generous helping of oil. Jesse teases in stunning sunlight as she wets her body down before the boys take over the responsibility of squirting

waivers, and her spunk (ahem) is part of why fans love to watch her. Once the fellas rip her outfit in two, they proceed to do their real damage, but Jesse is up to the task. When so many female performers would play the submissive double stuffed role, Jesse is eager to take these two cocks and never once plays anything close to victim. Her appeal is in her love of what she does, and that is apparent throughout this showcase. In her next scene, Jesse tops the big-bootied Kissa Sins. Kissa doesn’t make an appearance without her hubby, Johnny Sins, and this is no exception. Jesse has some tricks up her black, mesh sleeve and makes the beautiful and eager Kissa watch, bound to a chair, as Jesse sucks the life out of Mr. Sins. Kissa salivates as Jesse takes Johnny in her mouth and pussy, waiting for her chance to assist and get a taste, but Jesse teases Kissa’s mouth with Johnny’s cock and doesn’t let her have what she wants until Jesse says so. Once they untie Kissa, Johnny and Jesse both pounce on her and the three end up in a veritable cartoon cloud of body parts. Both girls enthusiastically slob Johnny’s knob, with a severe attention to each other while deep throating his big stick. It’s hard to say who does it better when they both look like they’re made for it, and more fun is had in every possible position until they share the load and end up in happy puddles of their former selves. Manuel Ferrara has a turn with Jesse, and these two make

a boy/girl scene more than just the average voyeuristic jerkworthy session. With an outdoor/indoor tease showcasing the blonde in natural light and slow motion, begging, “Do you want to fuck me?” before crawling for cock, this is a powerful segment of this collection. Jesse’s cock-sucking is obviously put to the test on Manuel’s fat stack, and her filthy mouth gets quite the workout, in every way. With ass-probing and tittyfucking, the action is consistently topped by the next bout of activity, and the money shot is exactly that: MONEY! The final scene is a posh encounter where Jesse teases, once again utilizing some slow-mo, while James Deen appears nearly ignorant to her existence. Deen can only hold out for so long and succumbs to her charms after snapping some pictures of the hottie in hardcore lingerie. Her breasts are aching to break free, and Deen’s cock is right there with them. The two of them have quite a go on a fancy couch, and when Jesse gets her jizz prize, she can’t seem to get enough. Even though Jesse has yet to cross the threshold into what fans would call the JJV Territory of being d.p.’d, blowbanged or administered her first BBC, this is not a showcase to ignore. Obviously the camerawork is top notch, and Jesse is put together in sexy fashions with her best features highlighted and, most of the time, penetrated. With a generous run time and top tier co-stars, every scene measures up to the next, and Jesse delivers with loads of energy.

T

he buzzing of a vibrator, whirring loudly, with a tattooed brunette’s back to the camera while Samantha Hayes is bound by her wrists with her legs forced open by a spreader bar—that is how this lesbian-fetish vignette begins, and it cleanses any notion that this is just another all-girl porno clear off the palate. The tattoos belong to rocker-babe Rachael Madori, who takes the dominant role to little Samantha, and has this role mastered. Her entire responsibility is only allowing Hayes to cum when she says so, and making the nubile sub mouth-clean her juices as best as she can. More devices are utilized to bring Hayes to the edge, including dildos and claws and more vibrators, all while

The Lesbian Experience: Dominance & Submission Hayes is further bound and blindfolded. These two provide a truly intense opening number. A very interesting chamber is used for Skin Diamond’s containment in her scene with domme Lyra Law. The two ladies are built very similarly, but the Law is meant to be adhered to, and Diamond is a thrilled submissive who proves she has been waiting for this day. Lifted off the ground in a leather, braided suspension device, Diamond’s perky nipples are easily clamped without resistance. Among the clamps, licking and cropping, the intensity builds before Diamond is lowered and bent over for a nice flogging from Mistress Law. Diamond is repeatedly referred to as a “good kitty,” and she purrs for a taste of her Mistress. Katrina Jade invades Aidra Fox’s holes in the third scene. She starts things off treating Fox like a kitty cat, but less than halfway in, abandons the sweet talk and turns the degradation up. Fox is bound on her back while Jade forces orgasms out of her. The first appearance of strap-on sex is between these two, and Jade fucks like a stud while Fox cums over and over again. The finale features sweet Adria Rae giving some back-talk to Mistress Anna Bell Peaks. Rae has to know she’s in for a punishment with her sass, and she is tested. Rae manages to get herself gagged and slapped before she’s restrained in mid-air. Mistress Peaks is happy to teach her a lesson with flogging and suction devices, as well as good old-fashioned smothering. Digital Sin is deep into their various kinky lines, producing more and more fetishheavy series that appeal to both curious and

T

he latest fem-fucking feature from Girlsway, featuring familiar faces and the continuing story of the nation in a state of desperation since the Normalcy Act to rid itself of the evil lesbian plague, Missing: A Lesbian Crime Story has everything that Girlsway fans have come to know and love. Part horror, part thriller, all killer lesbian sex and clever satire—buckle up, it’s gonna be a munchy ride. Cindy, played by Sara Luvv, escapes to the deserted Lesbo Lane with her tutor, Karlie Montana. In an attempt to be alone and satiate each other’s illegal desires, Montana ends up the latest victim of abduction as Luvv helplessly watches from inside the car. With

Missing: A Lesbian Crime Story AWAL (Association of Women Against Lesbians) running the media circuit, Lara Bradford, played by Riley Reid, finds herself aching for the big break of her journalism career with an issue that is near and dear to her own lesbian heart, especially after the organization was to blame for her descent in the first place. Tired of headlines full of cats, she opts to follow a different pussy story when the increasing number of missing ladies piques her interest. Of course, this is only after her beautiful girlfriend, Karla Kush, manages to distract her from the horrors of the oppressive outside world by making her cum a few times in their living room. Kendra James returns, playing Anita Sharp, the epitome of a villain. As she interrupts Reid and Kush, she happens to give Reid the chance to rise back up in her industry, at the cost of exposing MANTIS. Reid is desperate to change her own story and accepts James’ offer, but has no idea what it’s going to cost her. As Reid dives into the files, she uncovers names and patterns that lead her to Cindy’s home. She needs to get to the bottom of the mystery in order to help herself and find out why these women are going missing. She stumbles upon some of Cindy’s teenage hiding spots, transitioning into a beautiful outdoor flashback of Cindy and her tutor learning each other’s bodies, as Reid pleasures herself to the journal-smut as well. Once the orgasms clear, Reid begins to realize the women being abducted all have one very serious thing in common and is curious to find out why a prolesbian organization like MANTIS would be kidnapping their own affiliates. When

news hits that Cassidy Klein, a secret MANTIS agent, has also gone missing, Reid’s suspicions peak and she has to dive deeper ... into the story and into Klein’s sister, which involves sucking the poison out. She ends up at the mercy of Dr. Haze (as in Allie), a conversion therapist who specializes in mind-fucking. Haze is an expert in other fucking as well, as demonstrated in a hallucinogenic three-way between herself, Reid and Kush. Reid is becoming part of her own story, not knowing what is true and who to trust. In desperation, she reaches out to Sharp, the last person she thought she could turn to. In a political twist of power, she stumbles upon a den of the missing women and the answers to all of the questions she has been asking—but the answers are not at all what she expected, and the means of extracting them are just as deep and dirty as the web she has woven herself into. This feature does an impeccable job of seamlessly moving story through sex, keeping all of the tribadism heavy with heat and applicable dialogue. Every encounter is punctuated with energy and desire, and the roles, as well as the holes, are perfectly filled. The men in bit parts are always kept at a face-safe distance, so the focus is only on the female cast members. With romantic romps, three-ways, group sex and fem-dom scenarios, the amount of variety is wonderful, and the sex acts aren’t the only noteworthy elements. Every woman brings her A-game, and this two-disc set once again raises the Girlsway bar.

CATEGORY: DRAMA, POLYAMORY AAA 1/2

Another Stormy Daniels-directed feature, with familiar faces and a heartbreakingly relatable storyline—with a twist. Asa Akira plays Kim, recently heartbroken from learning of her husband’s year-long affair. It’s not long before Kim finds a hot young man to fuck her mind off of her fractured marriage ... but things get dangerous.

— K. Scott

DVD Reviews_11.16.indd 97

D: Lexington Steele. Cast: Luna Star, Alexa Tomas, Lexi Lowe, Reena Sky, Lexington Steele. 141 Min.

CATEGORY: INTERRACIAL AAAA

It’s becoming more and more common for an all-sex anthology to feature one notable male performer, and this isn’t the first one dedicated to Lexington Steele. All of the gorgeous ladies in this flick are never-before-Lex’d, with special note that cover girl Luna Star is performing her first IR.

— K. Scott

Prince Yahshua (Continued from page 61)

You have criticized the AVN Awards in the past. Can you talk more about your perceptions?

What I always thought in my mind was [the AVN Awards were] based on your performance, your character and the way you present yourself, not only to the media but to the public. ... I go to the AVN Awards year after year after year after year and I hear people’s names other than mine. [Fans ask], “We really don’t understand when we had an ethnic show, the Urban X Awards, you were a landslide [winner] every time, but with AVN you’re not really recognized at all.” And I tell them what I’ll tell you: The one big difference is only this: Urban X Awards was based on the people who actually buy the product. Those are the people who voted ... not a group of people that don’t know me, that don’t sit with me, that aren’t on my set. ... [They’re] passing judgment on what they see, not by what all of us know, as the true porn stars who work with each other every day, and with the general public. ... I have a passion for this business. This business took me away from the very bad lifestyle I was living before it. So I give this business much praise and much respect. But when I’m giving my all and I’m getting pretty much nothing back—I mean, am I getting my money? Yeah, I’m definitely getting my money. But at the end of the day, I want to be in the record books. ... Porn has been viewed since the early ’30s, and from the ’30s until today there’s only been one person who has brought new moves to porn. ... I don’t know if you’ve ever heard or seen me do the F-150. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard or seen me do the Atom Bomb or the Sidewinder or the Oil Well—these are moves that I have brought to the table.

What is the most common misconception about adult?

FEATURE

The biggest misconception that the fans have is that we’re having wild coke parties and orgies. I’m sitting in my house with my wife cooking dinner and my son doing his homework ... A cop when he’s on duty, he wears a blue suit and a badge, but when he’s at home he takes that off. He’s not Officer Michaels; he’s Mike. Same thing with us. At work, I’m Prince Yahshua. When I’m at home I’m just Prince. I’m Daddy. ... I’m not a partier; I don’t go to porn karaoke or the bars or social clubs like everybody. I’m a family man.

Flash Brown (Continued from page 63)

Moe Johnson (Continued from page 64)

In my personal life, my mother and grandmother. They instilled my values of being a respectful, God-fearing, hardworking man.

What scenes do you like to shoot best?

What is the most common misconception about adult?

That performers just party all the time and being on set is all fun and games. It takes a great deal of concentration and stamina to be on set for six to seven hours a day. Also that since we are fulfilling a visual fantasy, some fans believe that performers are available to fulfill their fantasies in person.  Which leads to the other common misconception—that we don’t have personal lives. Many of us are married, have children, and live very normal lives off set. Just like many other mainstream actors, it’s basically the same: Once we perform, we go home to live our lives.

What do you think of the way IR product (black male/white female) is marketed?

I believe IR is a label that was established decades ago. It’s a different time now. The adult industry is still stuck in a time capsule by using that term. Porn is porn. Sexual preference doesn’t need a label. Our world is so diverse, we are all “interracial.” This is why I am so proud of my AVN Award from 2016. It was the best boy/ girl scene. Not the best “interracial” boy/girl scene. It shows me that the industry is finally making progress. And that makes me proud.

What barriers, if any, have you encountered working in the adult industry?

There is always stigma with porn actors transitioning into mainstream entertainment. I believe with hard work, professionalism and dedication, you can break through these barriers. It has been done with several top performers. Also, being an African American, that comes with stigmas by itself! Add in the adult industry, that becomes even more challenging. Fortunately for me, I’m currently working on some mainstream projects, so I know it can be done. Hopefully I have inspired others to follow my lead.

Crazy enough, I would say the gangbang scenes. Mainly because it’s more like an alpha male thing. Mostly women are always being judged by men, but now you have one woman with a line full of men and she can judge who she likes or who’s pleasing her the best. ... It’s more of kind of a competition thing. As a man I want to make sure every scene I left an impressionable memory on her so she’s going to want to shoot a boy/girl or another scene for another company. With the gangbang scenes I get to meet a lot of the newer guys and try to mentor them—tell them the kind of mistakes I made. Try to push them to keep going. My first year was very rough but I was fortunate I had people around me. My second year was rough [because] after breaking up with my girlfriend, I had to start from scratch all over. Now I don’t chase every event, chase every party.”

What barriers, if any, have you encountered working in the adult industry?

Going to California from New York, I’ve experienced more racism in general. I experienced it to the point where it bothers me. If I look at my list of movies I’ve been in since I’ve been in California, almost 95 percent have an innuendo of something to do with race. The few titles that don’t have those words in it are from West Coast Productions, and that’s a black company. ... [But] I’m tired of the negativity. I started shooting my own homemade amateur videos, and seven years later I’m shooting for some of the largest companies in Europe [Johnson spoke to AVN from Prague]. I’m in a peaceful state; I’m in a whole other country. I’m handling my business. ... The scenes are definitely more hardcore here—gangbangs, double vag, double anal—but I look at it as a chance to work on my craft and better myself as a performer for when I return to the United States.

What are some accomplishments you’re most proud of?

I spent a lot of time with APAC. I went to San Diego recently and earlier this year to San Francisco to speak up on the condom laws. That brought me into seeing the full scope of the industry. ... That experience, I think, was good. I was kind of proud being the only African American male performer to speak up and represent us—not just us as an industry but us as African Americans. ... The work is always going to come and go, there’s always new guys—but to be able to be involved with something that you care so much about, that’s always been the thing for me. ... I have the cartoon that I’m also working on. ... I’m just figuring out the best way to get it out to everybody. There are two versions of it: It’s MoeTheMonster.com and that will send you to a Wordpress site where you can see everything and get a sample. And if you want to purchase anything, it will send you to Clips4Sale. I utilize all the different avenues. ... It’s something I want to continue to do because I see the longevity in it and it’s original ... with virtual reality being something that a lot of companies are putting a lot of money into doing now. And before that it was the 3D that a lot of people were after. So to be on a wave that no one else is really actively pursuing makes it more of a challenge for me and something that I’m more interested to do because nobody else is really competing. Once it’s perfected and done the right way, hopefully it’s received the right way.
