I think we can all agree that Chasey Lain ain’t what she used to be. In a lot of ways. But that fact did not prepare me for these two videos, released by a website producer who’d hired her for a shoot.
Chasey shows up to the shoot completely cracked out and proceeds to slur, stumble and curse her way through a nonsensical argument with the director that lasts for hours. Luckily, they condensed it down into 12 minutes of absolute trainwreck for easy consumption.
Part of me feels bad for Chasey and part of me finds it hard to pity someone who is so disagreeable and crazy, but all of me wonders why people are hiring her in this condition.

Most people agree that a big part of what makes a star great is her enthusiasm and love for what she does. Tory Lane just did a great interview with Rock Confidential in which she explains how she’s different from other girls in the industry:
They don’t love what they do. The money is great – it keeps me happy. I’m a pornographer, though. I love fucking on film. I love shooting. It turns me on knowing what I’m doing is turning other people on! When my job’s done and someone rents one of my movies, it’s a personal thing. I can be the dirtiest of the dirty but I can still sit down and have a family meal! I love what I do and that makes me good at it.
I highly recommend reading the entire interview, especially if you’re a fan of Tory’s.
Last night, I was browsing the site and started thinking about Keri Sable. Quick background story for those who aren’t familiar: young Keri entered the business in 2004 when she was just 18. She did a bunch of gonzo movies and got noticed by the president/owner of Wicked Pictures, Steven Orenstein, who offered her a contract. In early 2006, word was she quit the business and left her Wicked contract unfulfilled. No one really seemed to know what happened, but when she didn’t show up at AVN, it was pretty much confirmed.
I had the great pleasure to be at a dinner with Steve Orenstein that year at AVN. Everyone wanted to know what happened with Keri, why she was worth all the trouble, etc. What I remember of his answer is that she had that special thing, that je nes sais quoi, that you just know when you see it. He didn’t get into why she left, but had very kind words about her – she was a very nice girl, but very young. If she didn’t want to be in porn, who was he to try to change her mind?
Investigating the Claim
So I went back and watched a few of Keri’s scenes last night. Notably, Teen Fuck Holes #1, scene 5, Sex Fiends #1, scene 1, and Finders Keepers, scene 1. I wanted to see if I agreed that she was something special (why it took me 3 years to have the inclination to do so, I don’t know).
Maybe Steve Was Right
I watched her in a 1-on-1 scene, a scene with another girl and a guy and a DP. After all that, my thoughts were that she really seemed that she was in the moment. The main evidence was that her sex noises didn’t seem bored or forced, she smiled, got flushed, and above all, she moved her hips. Porn girls never seem to move their hips when they fuck. They just kinda lie there or bounce around or kneel passively. But Keri actually moved. So while skinny bleach blonde teen girls with fake nails are not usually my thing, I had to admit that I liked her. I think that’s the mark of a good porn star – they don’t fit with your usual aesthetic, but you don’t care because they manage to be hot anyway.
What about you? What’s the difference between an average porn girl and a porn star? What gets every one of a girl’s scenes on your favorites list?
I know how much many of you enjoy scenes where the woman finishes the guy off, so I figured I’d give you a heads up about The Slut Pack, scene 1. Everyone’s favorite childless MILF strokes and sucks some guy off, POV-style. This is a one-of-a-kind on the site, so if you’re a Nina Hartley fan, you should definitely check it out.
