Jada Fire is Hilarious

I had the enormous pleasure of interviewing Jada Fire this morning. She’s probably the funniest porn star I’ve ever interviewed, and maybe the most candid. She told me a story about a scene she did with Annette Schwarz that you are seriously not ready for.

I do realize that I’m not laughing in this picture, but every other one that was taken is of me cracking up while she talks. And blurry.

Good Morning, Day 3

Getting ready to head down to the floor for the third exciting day of the AEE. My first interview of the day is Ms. Bobbi Starr. I’m always a little nervous before an interview, but after having done over half a dozen of them yesterday, I’m an old hand…I hope.

Adult Entertainment Expo Day 2: Interviews a Go Go

This morning, I woke up and had breakfast with America’s Beloved Porn Journalist. Always a fun time. My first interview of the day didn’t go so well (in a number of ways), so I grabbed some coffee and waited for my 1:30 with Belladonna – yes, she is the star I’ve been waiting to interview for five years. And I was not disappointed.

After that, I got to sit down with the lovely Chayse Evans for a bit and discuss the finer points of nymphomania and dildos. I always love it when I get to do an interview with a girl who doesn’t take herself too seriously and likes to have fun. On the way to lunch afterward, I heard someone behind me causing a ruckus with a bullhorn. When I turned around, it was none other than Penny Flame. In a bathrobe.

After lunch, I had the chance to sit down with one of my favorite stars, Jenna Haze. Believe it or not, she’s even cuter in person. And she claims that she’s a total dork. I didn’t notice it, but apparently she has some issues with stairs. Namely walking on them without bruising herself. She showed me the one she got the day before.

After Jenna, I had a double interview with Mya Luanna and Shy Love. It turns out they’re best friends and Shy actually does Mya’s taxes. I doubt there are too many pornstars out there who double as CPAs.

I have lots of video of all of these interviews and more that I can’t wait to share. Finding time to edit video at the convention is tough, but keep an eye out over the coming weeks for all the silliness I’ve gotten into with these girls while I’ve been here. It’s been a blast so far…let’s see what Saturday will bring…

Quick Update Before Dinner

Belladonna is not only cute and pixie-sized, she’s one of the nicest people I’ve ever met.

Full recap of the day later, but I’ll say it was lots of fun and I got to hug Jenna Haze.

Randomly: Penny Flame

I happened to bump into Penny Flame outside the convention, who was carrying a bullhorn, wearing a bathrobe and causing a huge ruckus. I love Penny.

Adult Entertainment Expo Day 1: Industry Only Day

I got into Las Vegas around noon today and headed straight for the AEE floor. Because it was industry-only day, there weren’t huge hoards of people lining up 50 deep to get their pictures taken with porn stars. Unfortunately, not that many big stars were signing today for that same reason.

I saw a bunch of great girls though (Sunny Lane, Jenna Haze and Rebecca Linares are fine examples) and I even got a little up close and personal with Alexis Texas. I can honestly say I’ve never been groped by a woman with a more magnificent ass.

My cameraman (you guys remember Noah, right?) gets in late tonight, so it was just me and the pocket camera today. I guess I had it on a funky setting because a lot of my pictures didn’t come out great. But I have three more days of taking pictures and shooting video, so consider these photos the tip of the AEE iceberg. Some previews:

Tomorrow’s going to be a big day: a minimum of six interviews with girls, at least one of whom I’ve been hoping to meet for years (one small hint: she’s one of my Top 5 Porn Stars). I can’t wait to post the videos for you guys! Stay tuned…

Adult Industry Seeks Multi-Billion Dollar Bailout

(snippet)

Larry Flynt is seeking a $5 billion bailout from Washington to rejuvenate the industry, which he says is suffering because of the economic downturn.

“With all this economic misery and people losing all that money, sex is the farthest thing from their mind,” Flynt said in a statement. People were “too depressed to be sexually active”, which was “very unhealthy as a nation. Americans can do without cars and such, but they cannot do without sex.” He said the only way Congress could “rejuvenate” America’s sexual appetite was “by supporting the adult industry and doing it quickly.”

Interested to hear your reactions to this story. Do you feel the adult industry is deserving of a bailout? More so, less so, or on par with the banking industry? The insurance industry? The auto industry? Do you find yourself too depressed for sexual activity lately? If so, do you believe it’s related to the economic downturn? Has your consumption of adult industry products (including online material) increased, decreased, or remained the same during the past several months? Would you anticipate any changes to these consumption habits over the upcoming months?

Goodbye San Francisco, Hello Las Vegas

AEE
It’s that time again – the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas begins tomorrow and I’ll be there taking pictures, talking to pornstars and generally bringing the action to the folks who couldn’t make it to the show.

I’ll be updating as frequently as I can beginning Thursday night, so make sure to check back often for news, photos and videos!

Cutest Cuties

Greetings Videobox members! My name is Andy and I work at Videobox as a member of the Content Team. My primary role in the company is to scan and edit all of the DVD box covers on the site. In addition to this I also help out with encoding the content that we get in. In short, my job often requires me to look at these porn stars from an aesthetic standpoint.

It’s been about two years since I first started here, and during my time at Videobox I’ve seen thousands of girls. So I’ve decided to pick out five of what I think are the prettiest girls on the site, pretty all around. Each pick includes a recommendation for a scene to check out. I hope you’ll agree with some of my choices.

Mary Anne
Mary Anne
Mary Anne is a total cutie pie. I first noticed her back when we were encoding some of the first of the Platinum X stuff hitting the site. She seems to have that slightly awkward, amateur thing going on, which I really dig, and her eyes are really blue and hypnotic. Be sure to check her out in Teens Cumming of Age #2, Scene 6, where she claims that her nice ass comes from “all that soccer I used to play back in high school”. Hot!
Annette Schwarz
Annette Schwarz
I truly believe that underneath all that cum-snorting and double anal that there is a sweet little German girl inside of Annette Schwarz. Yes, Annette is one extreme porn star. But, you know what? I think she’s pretty. Don’t miss Annette in Registered Nurse, Scene 2.
Franchezca Valentina
Franchezca Valentina
Franchezca Valentina is one of the hottest pornstars around. I love her long, brown hair and her matching brown eyes. Scene 1 of Clothes Freaks is one of my favorite scenes from Franchezca because of all the different outfits she tries on. I also like the way they do her makeup in that scene and it goes especially well with the black and pink stockings that she puts on at 10:30.
Monica Sweetheart
Monica Sweetheart
I think Monica Sweetheart is drop-dead gorgeous. Lucky for you, there are presently fifty-seven Monica Sweetheart scenes on the site. It’s hard to choose a favorite, but for the sake of time I’m going to say that Cum Drippers #2, Scene 6 is a good one to watch. Monica Sweetheart has beautiful everything and she knows it.
Rebecca Linares
Rebecca Linares
This Spanish cutie is also among my favorites in porn. If you haven’t already, definitely check her out in Booty and the Geek, Scene 4. This is one of Rebecca’s finest scenes and Johnny Thrust is hilarious playing the geek. Listen to the way she pretends to be creeped out. She can hardly contain her cute little smile the whole time. Oh, and you can’t tell me that accent isn’t cute as hell. Linares would be my first choice if I could meet a pornstar in person. She seems absolutely lovely.
