We here at POPPORN would like to take a moment to offer our condolences on the untimely passing of pornographic auteur and veteran Jake Malone. Granted, we didn't know him personally, but those who did spoke well of him. The news we're able to glean suggests that he had been living through difficult circumstances and had found himself at crossroads of sorts. Naturally, it's safe to say he chose which way he wanted to go. We wish his family and friends well during this difficult time.
Let's pretend someone you know is a porn star. Here are a couple things you need to know if you want to try to ever have a conversation with them, but also, if you ever hope to not be a complete douche bag.
By a lot, I mean two, but isn't that kind of a lot, all things considered?
Yes, yes, its been over a month since we last posted something on these pages. And yes, in this age of over-information, that kind of delay in delivering high-quality content could spell death for a blog. That's why it's lucky for us to be financially backed by a large corporation that allows us to, quite frankly, not care for what might be "normal", "adequate" or even vaguely "decent". Instead, we just kind of do what we do.
Last week, I was in Las Vegas for the 2014 AVN show and while there, I rode an elevator with two young women that I did not recognize. From their conversation it was clear that they were new to the adult industry attending their very first adult show. As they discussed their experiences thus far in the business and becoming "tumblr famous" they were chatting about what to wear to the show.
"...I'm gonna wear my prom dress..." one said, while the other responded, "...I'm buying a dress and returning it tomorrow..."
As a statement we created this site."
Naturally, I didn't understand. But of course, I clicked the link.
Before we get down to whatever Elegant Angel's doing, I need to take a moment to salute my colleague and biological father, Spock BUCKTON.
In a move that's already set 2014 along a path to be significantly more flummoxing than the last, Girlfriends Films head honcho has sold his business to a moose. Not the longtime vice president of the company named moose, mind you, but rather an actual moose, hailing from Millinocket, Maine. It's yet to be determined whether this was some sort of veiled message towards Moose the human (something along the lines of "I'd rather have an actual moose run my company"), a case of broken eyeglasses or the first signs of Howard Hughes-style insanity. It's just too early to tell.
Dick Chibbles? Check.
James Barfsalot? Check.
A large, clunky silver chain? Check.
Static shots? Check.
Do you know Cam Damage? Neither do we, but we know of her which we certainly hope you do as well. Why? Well, as we say time and time again, beauty is a bunch of bullshit. Throw a dart, hit a million beautiful things. What's rare in this world is to come across something that puts your guts in knots just from photographs. That's what Cam Damage does.
Al Goldstein, known to many as a pioneer in the field of pornography, has passed away. A long time ago, before porn was over-plentiful and accepted by the mainstream, Mr. Goldstein created a magazine called "Screw". Perhaps you've heard of it. it chronicled the business of people sticking things into other people in a way that hadn't been done before.
The man was 77 years old. He died of a thing called "renal failure". I won't lie. I don't know what that means.
Who doesn’t enjoy a bit of lesbian action to make their day go along a bit faster? Lesbian porn movies are incredibly good ways to release some tension when jacking off and the latest Hot And Mean release featuring ebony pornstar Diamond Jackson and hottie India Summer is sure to please on a whole host of levels.
When someone leaves the adult industry what is the proper etiquette for addressing them after their departure? Is it best to assume that, unless they continue to make rounds in the adult industry in some fashion, they would prefer to be left out of any adult oriented commentary? Or is everything fair game whether or not they have retired or whether they like it not?
Case in point, Ashlynn Brooke.
It appears that Chad Alva's got a surprising amount of tricks hidden up his sleeve (underneath a bunch of sweet fuckin' ink, I assume). Last year, he blew our minds by turning us on to Children, the bone-crushing assault of musical power put together by himself and the recently deceased Daniel Wylde. The a few months back, he proved himself to be a refreshingly capable filmmaker when he released the impressive and surprisingly non-awful film Future Sluts Supreme. Now he's gone and fucked us in the consciousness once more by informing us that he is joining the ranks of Kurt Vonnegut and actor-turned-writer Luke Wilson.
Yes. Chad Alva is now a novelist.
There are only two possible answers to that question: "Yes!" or (possibly and/or) "What? I'm lost." Either works.
A couple months ago I announced that I would be coming out of retirement with a series of interviews and even a new booking agency backing me. I had been out of the industry since 2011 so I was totally psyched to return to performing...until I wasn't. And let me tell you, being un-psyched came pretty quick!
