Vivid Girls Hate Choco Tacos

Conan O’Brien fans who tuned in this Tuesday got a glimpse inside the Vivid Entertainment Plaza (plaza?) when he went on a tour of his new Studio City neighborhood and happened to pay Vivid a visit. For those who missed it, please enjoy:



The first several minutes of the clip show Conan wandering around to a magic shop, a ski store and a sign-making establishment. He finishes his odyssey at the Vivid compound, getting a tour of the facility by the likes of Monique Alexander, Sunny Leone and Meggan Mallone.

In the final moments of the clip, Conan distributes an ice cream treat called a Choco Taco. Vivid contract stars are up for anything (except, in some instances, anal. or penises), so they all gave the frozen novelty a try (or at least an exploratory bite).

Watch Meggan Mallone and A.J. Bailey’s faces at the end of the clip. From what I hear, all the girls completely hated the Choco Tacos. But on the plus side, Andy Richter is reportedly really nice.

Studio Spotlight: Cezar Capone

0827-header
On August 1st with little fanfare, VideoBox started adding titles from the studio Cezar Capone. As of this writing, eleven DVD’s from the studio have been uploaded to the site. Cezar Capone specializes in reality themed DVD’s. They have at least a dozen different title lines, of which we’ve already seen ten. I’ve found the production values and camera work to be very good, and have enjoyed many fresh faces that I was previously unfamiliar with. We’ll take a closer look at the studio inside, and I’ll give a brief synopsis of a few Cezar Capone scenes which have caught my eye. Please tell me your reaction to the studio’s DVD’s, and inform the membership of your favorite scenes from Cezar Capone.

I am happy to announce that we just added the ability for you to embed any VideoBox scene to your website or blog.

 

To give you a taste, I have embedded above the most popular scene for this week.

 

Why would I use this?

 

Let’s say that you really like a scene. Well, if you have your blog or a website, you can now stream scenes from the VideoBox library right on your site/blog.

 

There are almost 40,000 scenes available to be embedded. You can embed the scene, write about it and show it to your friends.

 

The benefit for VideoBox is that we get potential users to click through the embedded videos and check out VideoBox.

 

How does it work?

 

To embed a scene on your website:

  • Find the scene and go to the video streaming page. Scroll down and you find the link to embed.
  • Copy the link and paste it into your web page. Or paste it in your blog. Then, save and test the page to make sure it works.

 
Your scene will now stream. You can even watch it full screen!

 

When you click on the player, you navigate to VideoBox and can see all the details about the scene, including title, performers, studio and comments.

 

That’s it! Let us know what you think.

 

One caveat: because of licensing agreements, the embed link is not available on scenes from premium channels.

 

Coming Soon

 

Anticipated additions include:

 

1. Ability to embed specific parts of scenes.

 

2. Embedded video to include more features, such as search, related scenes, and information about the video.

 

3. More options to customize embedded player size and styles.

 

Please let us know what you think of this new addition.

 

Thanks!

Small Breasts: The Ten Hottest Performers

Big tits are overrated. There, I said it. While large boobs can be very attractive (as well as very unattractive), there’s something about a small, perky pair of tits that you have to love – especially when they come with a beautiful face, tight body and great attitude.

This is my list of girls who fail the pencil test, but succeed at being some of the hottest pornstars in the biz.

Twenty Questions

I’ve captured images from fourteen scenes appearing on VideoBox. You must identify the DVD, series, performer, studio, etc. Multiple choice help files are provided for each question (at a reduced point total), if you cannot make the identification from the images alone. The answer key is provided at the bottom of the post. Maximum score is 100. Click all images to enlarge.

2 Anal Or Not 2 Anal – That Is The Question

0817-header
One of the more heated subjects of debate which regularly surface in the movie review comments, centers on the inclusion or exclusion of anal intercourse in a particular scene or DVD. For many in the membership, anal appears to be a deal breaker, one way or the other. Some will only view – download scenes containing anal, others will only view – download non-anal scenes. I’m sure a great many others fall in-between these two extreme viewpoints. Let’s try to resolve this issue once and for all with the following poll. Please select the answer which best fits your viewing – downloading habits. Beyond the poll itself, if you hold an extreme viewpoint (must have anal, must not have anal), please reply in the comments and try to convince a neutral person like myself why I should adopt your philosophy.

Does the inclusion or exclusion of anal in a scene, influence your decision to view or download the scene?

What Light Can Porn Shed on the U.S. Healthcare Debte?

heathcare
News broke yesterday that Stephanie Swift has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. Stephanie has been performing for almost 14 years and has no other forms of income. Because the cancer is so severe, she must endure a double mastectomy that she will be responsible for paying for out of pocket. A friend is collecting donations to help Stephanie keep from going bankrupt while dealing with cancer.

Not too long ago, fellow performer Nicki Hunter was diagnosed with and fought lymphoblastic leukemia/lymphoma, a complex form of cancer targeting the lymph system. In order to pay for the expensive treatments, a series of fundraising events were organized by friends and colleagues in the adult industry. It even appears that some of Nicki’s so-called friends may have been fraudulently raising funds and pocketing them instead of helping pay for her massively expensive cancer treatments.

A third actress, Tina Tyler, was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year. Not wanting to have to beg for money for life-saving care, she is moving home to her native Canada for treatment because she is entitled to it as a citizen of that country.

I honestly don’t know whether any of these women were insured when they were given their diagnoses. Half of all bankruptcies in the U.S. are caused by overwhelming medical bills, and most of those people had health insurance. One can only guess at these women’s personal circumstances, but Americans Stephanie Swift and Nicki Hunter were reduced to begging and will likely remain on the hook for a tremendous amount of money, regardless of how generous their friends and acquaintances are. Tina Tyler, as a Canadian, can focus on her recovery instead of worrying how she’s going to pay for it.

I wish Stephanie and Tina the very best in their battle against the disease and I truly hope Nicki is able to remain cancer-free. If you would like more information on how you can help Stephanie Swift, please contact NicaNoelle@aol.com.

Last Name Same As First

0810-header

For today’s quiz, I’ve captured images from ten scenes appearing on VideoBox. You must identify the performers. By strange coincidence, the last names of five of the performers just happen to be the first names of the other five performers. The images are arranged randomly. Do not assume the last name of performer 01 is the first name of performer 02. This is not the case. Correct identifications drawn from the images alone are worth 10 points. If you need some clues, click the help file toward the bottom of the post. The help file will properly group the ten performers into five sets of two, where the last name of the first matches the first name of the second. The help file also gives the first two letters of the shared name as well as the initials of the other names. Correct answers after viewing the help file are worth 5 points. Please attempt to identify all ten performers before consulting the help file, as that file has the clues for all ten images. Maximum score is 100. The answer key is at the very bottom of the post. Click all images to enlarge.

Stormy Daniels Arrested for Domestic Battery
On July 25th, Stormy was arrested for battery after hitting her husband in the head during a domestic dispute. The fight started because Stormy’s father-in-law did her laundry in a way that was not to her liking. Neither she nor her husband (industry PR guy Mike Moz) have issued any public statements about the incident.
mr-and-mrs-teaganTeagan got engaged
July 24th was Ms. Presley’s birthday and her boyfriend Josh gave her an engagement ring that he had created for her. Josh is the father of her child as well as her business partner. He seems like a nice guy and I hope that they have a long and happy marriage. No word yet whether they’ve set a date.

Max Hardcore currently resides in the Metropolitan Detention Center in LA. He recently wrote a letter to Porn Valley News updating them on his case. Max will be appealing his conviction in October to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta. Hard to say how it’ll turn out, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the all of the victims of obscenity prosecution.
jenna-presley1-smallPornstar roommates take conflict public
Earlier this week, Shawna Lenee posted on Twitter that her roommate, Jenna Presley had slammed her head through her wall and “peed everywhere” because she was on drugs. She also claimed that Presley was taken to a mental hospital. Shawna ended up looking pretty stupid later on when Jenna explained that she was not on drugs, but rather had a Grand mal epileptic seizure. She had to be hospitalized afterward and given her seizure medication intravenously.
