A Rebel Without a Shul
Known Spam Operations responsible for 90% of your spam
90% of spam received by Internet users in North America and Europe
can be traced via redirects, hosting locations of web sites, domains
and aliases, to a hard-core group of around 200 known spam operations,
almost all of whom are listed in the ROKSO database. These spam operations
consist of an estimated 500-600 professional spammers loosely grouped
into gangs ("spam gangs"), the vast majority of whom are operating illegally,
and who move from network to network seeking out Internet Service Providers
("ISPs") known for lax enforcing of anti-spam policies.
These are the spammers you definitely do NOT want on your network.
Many of these spam operations pretend to operate 'offshore' using servers
in Asia and South America to disguise the origin. Those who don't pretend
to be 'offshore' pretend to be small ISPs themselves, claiming to their
providers the spam is being sent not by them but by their non-existent
'customers'. Some set up as fake networks, pirate or fraudulently obtain
large IP allocations from ARIN/RIPE and use routing tricks to simulate
a network, fooling real ISPs into supplying them connectivity. When
caught, almost all use the age old tactic of lying to each ISP long
enough to buy a few weeks more of spamming and when terminated simply
move on to the next ISP already set up and waiting.
ROKSO is a "3 Strikes" register. To be listed in ROKSO a spammer must
first be terminated by a minimum of 3 consecutive ISPs for AUP violations.
IP addresses under the control of ROKSO-listed spammers are automatically
and preemptively listed in the Spamhaus Block List (SBL).
For Law Enforcement Agencies there is a special version of this ROKSO
database which gives access to records with information, logs and evidence
too sensitive to publish here.
Why Not More Blooper Tapes?
HR writes on
Released by Video Team, 1994, approx. 1 hr. 15 min., directed by Wes
This vid features lots of outtakes from adult vids and has 3 complete
sex scenes. It's hosted by P.J. Sparxx and Jonathan Morgan. The two
present the bloopers in segments pertaining to the qualities necessary
to make it as a porn performer. I'm not a fan of either of them so I
found them both pretty distracting and FF thru a lot of their banter.
The segments and their respective highlights are as follows:
"Ability to Take Direction"
Steven St. Croix and a crewperson are wiping of PJ's bare feet. This
made me think of the segment on pornstars and shoes from the FAQ. Amber
Lynn is told to take off her shoes (because they make too much noise)
and she says, "Get f-cked!" "Enthusiasm" Shots of performers making
exaggerated faces for the cumshot. One messy and nasty double facial
on Crystal Wilder who spits it out (blech!)
An actress unexpectedly begins lactating and decides to get it on tape
(she's doing g/g and the other actress reels back, fearing she'll get
an squirted in the eye). Probably the funniest scene on the tape, Mike
Horner is totally flaccid and is pretending to f-ck Tiffany Million
doggy. When they switch to standing side saddle, Mike is faux pumping
furiously and you can see his flaccid willy flopping around. One of
the crew yells, "Bad penis! Bad penis!" while the 2 performers crack
up. They then show the complete scene as it was on the final video.
"Memory & Diction"
Lots of scenes w/ performers forgetting lines and giggling. Those I
recognized were Peter North, Alex Jordan, Chris Newz, Tom Byron, PJ
Sparxx, and Mike Horner. They then show a complete scene w/ PJ, Mike,
and some guy I didn't recognize. It takes place in a locker and seems
to involve PJ getting something extra w/ her tennis lessons. "Stamina"
An actress tells the director she can't take any more anal (in mish)
and the director complies by stopping the scene. Male performers popping
too soon, popping zilch, and not being able to get it up.
"Grace and Agility"
They show Peter North popping one of his usual huge loads on a girl's
butt while in cowgirl; all you see is the girl's ass and the huge load
and one of the crew mutters, "All right! I want this guy's address,
phone no., and...!" PJ and another girl tumble off a chair while PJ
is trying to stick one of her boobs into the girl's butthole. Deidre
Holland and Flame are in a 69 and Deidre (who's on the bottom) starts
to spit. She smiles and says, "Got some hair on my tongue" to which
Flame giggles, "I've got a lot down there." They then show the complete
lez scene between these two ladies.
The tape ends w/ outtakes from the hosting by PJ and Morgan. It starts
off w/ Morgan's usual wisecracks and smug comments and degenerates into
arguing--Morgan says to her, "I loathe you w/ every fiber of my body"
and PJ smacks him at least 7 times (I stopped counting). I didn't mention
a lot of the outtakes since they were real brief. I couldn't identify
any of the titles the outtakes were from and they weren't listed; I
also couldn't identify a lot of the performers but you can find this
info. at least at the DB. If you cut out the sex scenes (which really
aren't worth seeing unless you're a diehard fan of the performers in'em)
and the banter between PJ and Morgan, the bloopers were probably around
Seth Warshavsky - How Significant A Player?
Question for the industry historians -- how major a player was Seth
Warshavsky in the online porn industry? Five years ago, mainstream media
stories were calling him the Flynt/Guccione of the internet, but even
then I never heard anyone *inside* the industry consider him a big deal.
Johnathan Silverstein writes:
Seth was as major a "player" as they come! Let's just say that while
I was there as Director of Sales and Marketing (2yrs), we released the
Pam & Tommy video and Clublove.com was in the news almost every week!
Imagine if a company did 1000+ joins every day and didn't do it through
use of an affiliate program At the HEIGHT of IEG/Seth's success we did
around 30 million from website sales alone ... and this was when Pam
and Tommy was the biggest selling adult video in the world/modern history
and was also featured in almost every hotel chain that showed porn!
Also, this was before he left the country for Thailand with his millions.
He DID have an affiliate program and was one of the 1st 5 or so companies
to get webmasters sending traffic at a couple/few cents per click!
Just like everything else he did! He f-cked up a good thing, mismanaged
funds, and bounced checks - this time to webmasters.
I remember going to an early IA2000 show in 1997. This was my first
tradeshow as the "face of IEG" to webmasters. I had just found out that
Seth bounced a lot of checks - so my work was cut out for me!
I got into a limo with Serge and Bob Botto but had no idea who they
were. We were coming back from a strip club party that Python held and
I heard Bob call Serge by his name. I said something to Serge about
talking sh-t about Seth, and he laughed - said I had balls coming to
the show, and told me he had a STACK of .03 & .06 (that's 3-6 cents!)
bounced checks from IEG!
We started talking, became friendly and at one point - I got Serge
to become the payment company for anyone that sent traffic to clublove.com!
Seth had to PREPAY Serge 20K - 50K at a clip so webmasters would feel
comfortable sending traffic again! Clublove.com was one of the BEST
converting sites ever!!! That was a loose ass slot machine!

I could never understand Seth. He had a lot of good people around him
& still let it all go to hell! I remember our first meting on Nov 1996
- You showed up at AdultDex, looking like a bouncer, with a hot Internet
chick on your arm. You talked me into letting you have a table to give
away T-shirts & autographs. As I remember - it was probably only $500.
Her line interferred with the registration line, and I had a hell of
a time getting you to move the table.... I had no idea at the time who
you were or who she was..... I learned real quick - that she was one
hot chick, and you were 'a real talker...
50 Inch Plasma TV or 2 Hours with Rebecca Lord?
I do not know what do with an extra 5 grand I got, before anyone tells
me that it would be stupid to blow $5,000 Dlls on just 2 hours with
a great PS like Rebecca Lord, I'm afraid that Plasmas will drop in price
in a couple of years and I would have missed the oportuinity to be with
a great pornstar. What should I do?

will continue to use inside sources of info to insure he has trouble
shooting illegal outdoor footage and turn all violations in to media/cops/?.
I will also rally organized protests at his studio,and with people who
choose to do business with this loser.

Sativa Rose Tragedy
Tragedy writes on RAME:
Sativa Rose was one of my new favorite pornstars - when I first saw
her on the cover of Young Ripe Melons #5 from Red Light District it
really captured her beauty and essence. WHAT
A KNOCKOUT (the girl on the left of this picture - with BEAUTIFUL NATURAL
BREASTS no less.
I even hoped maybe at this year's Erotica L.A. show that I'd run into
her and be able to tell her how beautiful she is and that she doesn't
have to do porn if she doesn't want to - that she could be a legitimate
model EASILY if she wanted to.. maybe even get her number or something..
Well my heart broke when I was perusing the aisles at my video store
and the new releases of the day came out - there she was in f-cking
CLOWN makeup on the cover of the latest max hardcore movie (extreme
schoolgirls #7) - on the back her face was cover with Max's jizz. The
thought of max penetrating her asshole like he expects to do with his
starlets made me want to puke...
Out of morbid curiosity I rented the title just in the hopes that he
DIDN'T penetrate her anus and she only let him do a non-anal scene like
some of the higher-end girls sometimes insist of him. Well THANKFULLY
she doesn't even allow his tiny rotten prick into her vagina, not to
HOWEVER: She may as well have let him because the things she lets him
do (gagging her until puking) all the way to the very end cumshot where
she appears in distress for a few seconds and he's unloading on her
face and he bats her hand away as she struggles to get a breath and
is in OBVIOUS distress. The DVD also mentioned a euro version of the
movie so I went to Max hardcore's site, watched the euro trailer, and
GASP Sativa even lets max PISS in her mouth... That was it.. I'm done
with Sativa - I don't care if she does double-anal black gangbangs on
the next cover of Gangland series or something.. she's just not hot
anymore.. the sheen is off the rose. Another beautiful starlet that
could've had a bright future chose to "just take the money" and lower
herself into the gutter of Max hardcore ... read on.. Another tragedy.
I totally agree.... Nothing sickens me more than watching that old,
bald & flabby Whitey getting his jollies cornholing a beautiful pornslut.
I can remember when I saw the lucious & innocent looking Leanni Lei
on one his boxcovers. It sickened me knowing that she was cornholed
& abused by this pathetic diddler. I never rented another video with
her in it. Any girl who performs with Max, I blacklist. The only people
who rent his videos are mysogynistic old caucasion pedophiles.
Briana Banks AKA Miraga at the time was in one of his movies and you
could she didn't appreciate what was going on. He pissed in her mouth
and degraded her to the fullest extent. Don't get me wrong, the best
thing about porn is seeing pretty girls doing nasty things. Seeing Nautica
Thorn swallow cum and Alicia Rhodes taking 2 dicks in the ass is sexy
cause it shows how much these hot chicks are really sluts. However,
Max's antics have no eroticism. He should just pay these girls the money
to do it and not release the videos. As long as he doesn't get a hold
of Aveena Lee and Nautica Thorn, I am cool with it.
Best Drugs For Watching Porn?
Starwars writes on RAME:
Some drugs can really intensify the porn-watching experience. My girlfriend
and I have found that snorting some cocaine and methamphetamine together
provides the most intense porn-watching experience. The meth really
lets you get into the dirtiness of the action, while the coke adds a
hedonistic element. I've tried smoking cocaine (crack) but found that
it's terrible for watching porn (as well as for anything else)..the
experience isn't heightened all, but rather dulled. And acid was too
weird..made everything seem unsexual, mechanical, and just plain ridiculous,
but maybe I took too much. Anyone else have any favorite drugs for watching
porn? I haven't tried alcohol, heroin, pot, or ecstasy ...what are those
Before anyone starts moralizing...
RECREATIONAL DRUG USE DISCLAIMER: All drugs, including alcohol, should
be used in moderation and infrequently. Only an idiot uses drugs so
frequently that he gets hooked. Don't be an idiot. Even a single drug
use is followed by an unpleasant withdrawal period. Sit through this
period and don't use again until quite awhile after your chemistry and
state of mind is back to normal. Otherwise, addiction may begin. Recreational
drugs, including alcohol, should only be used by those with exceptional
self- discipline and a firm grip on reality. Never inject drugs. Do
not take stimulants if not in good physical and aerobic condition with
a healthy heart. Some drugs, including alcohol, may cause unnacceptable
damage to the body or brain, so research thoroughly first. Don't drive
under the influence of drugs. Don't underestimate the danger of alcohol
even though it's legal. Resarch drug interactions (including with alcohol)
before experimenting with combinations on yourself. Some combinations
can be extremely hazardous or fatal. Be aware that potencies may vary
considerably due to the unregulated nature of the black market, so exercise
caution. Avoid law enforcement officers. Some nations, such as the United
States of America, have highly draconian drug laws. If you are arrested
by police for purchasing, possessing, or using illegal drugs, it can
result in lengthy jail sentences and property confiscations, thereby
resulting in lost wages, mental anguish, and broken families. If you
have children or other dependents, consider what would be the effect
on them if you became incarcerated for a long period of time. Always
consider the risk/reward ratio in all aspects before buying or using
drugs. Because drug prohibition by governments enables a black market,
be aware that some of the money you use to pay for illegal drugs may
ultimately be used to fund violent criminals including terrorists. Never
allow children to use drugs. Don't give drugs to someone who you know
does not have the intelligence and discipline to understand and follow
the above recommendations.

How To Profit From A Vague Patent
IEEE Spectrum has an in-depth
article about the rise of Acacia
Research Corporation and its plan for enforcing its patent
on 'Digital Media Technology' (which seems to lay claim to any technology
that transmits audio or video digitally for entertainment purposes).
You may recall that there was a story
on Slashdot over a year ago about Acacia's threats and subsequent
lawsuits against some small adult entertainment companies regarding
their violation of the patent. There was also an Ask
Slashdot posted a while back by the owner of one of these companies
who had received a letter from Acacia Research demanding that they pay
licensing fees. Both Slashdot stories asked how long it would be until
Acacia went after the big media companies. Well, they finally
did last week. It appears that Acacia just had to get enough companies
(Disney and Virgin Radio, among others) to pay licensing fees before
they could afford a legal adventure against the big guys. DirectTV,
Comcast, Echostar, and Charter Communications are some of the defendents.
Let the fireworks begin!

Reid's New Breasts
Taylor Rain and the Black Man
Monkey posts on XXXPorntalk.com:
Just read the story on her at l-keford, taylor is perhaps the most
racist person besides rob black (ironic isn't it) in the biz. Most performers
who don't do IR tend to just make mention of it once and then no make
an issue of it, not taylor. She likes to go upto black performers and
spurt it out every chance she gets just so they are sure of her feelings
on people of other colours. Its fine to piss, gape her ass and cover
her in cum and is even willing to f-ck FAYNER but hey no IR for our
girl taylor. If this isn't the most blatant case of racism this side
of Bianca trump then i will become a grand wizard myself.
Scott Fayner posts on l-keford.com:
Taylor doesn't f-ck black dudes. It's that simple. It don't make her
racist and it don't make her a card-carrying member of the KKK. She
just don't f-ck black dudes. She's not the first girl that uses her
Human Right to get dick-slammed by who she so desires to be dick-slammed
by, and she won't be the last. She obviously doesn't find black men
attractive, and no one can give her sh-t for that. I highly doubt that
if she had a distaste for fat dudes there'd be fat dudes giving her
static over it.
For some reason, there are some black men who work in the business
that refuse to accept Taylor's decision, and make it a goal to bombard
the young starlet at every opportunity with pestering and pleas for
her to cross the color barrier. It's a pathetic sight to behold, especially
when she's your girlfriend and the attack is happening right in front
of you. I know first-hand. Not sure you know him, but Chase is a male
performer who happens to be black. He also happens to think he can change
the mind of TR about her choice of partners. It usually begins "when
are you gonna do a scene with a black guy?" to which she says, "dog,
I don't f-ck black guys." It should end there. Scratch that. It should
never have gotten to where he asked. If TR decided to do brothers on
camera, she'd tell Chase. They've known each other for a while now.
It wouldn't be a secret.
Taylor's been kickin' it with a new beau, a civilian not stitched
in the skin game. We were at XES for Craven's party, they bumped into
Chase who immediately began his speech about her not doing black guys.
TR shot back her usual rebuttal, so sick and tired of the never-ending
stalking. Dude, I don't eat Pig, never have, and no Pig ever came up
and gave me sh-t about it. It is my decision, no one else's. Trying
to beg don't make a lick of good. Frankly, it's insulting and improper
on every level. TR's guy kept to himself, watching her for a signal
that she wants a fist to connect with a skull. Chase then said something
about wanting TR to do a private with him. That as the straw that broke
the camel's back. She had been offended for the last time. Work is work,
but he was calling her a hooker in front of her boyfriend. That is not
tolerated in any civilized country.
She blew up at Chase. They blew past me and exited the club, fuming
mad and seeking retribution. They wanted to get him kicked out, which
I assume would end in a blood bath. Disrespecting a man's woman warrants
a beat-down. I tried to calm them down, got them to the car. "I was
just waiting for you to give me the okay to beat his ass," TR's dude
yelled at her. "He was seconds from getting the sh-t kicked out of him."
I could see he was not joking. I've never had any static with Chase,
but I have been annoyed with his advances towards my once-girlfriend
right in front of me. It's offensive. It's wrong. It's a piss-poor way
to get a chick in the sack. Their night was ruined from there on. I
promised to write this because I truly believe this nagging should cease.
There are plenty of white chicks that do black guys. Coax them into
helping you get work. Taylor has made up her mind about it. It's set
in stone. She is as furious as a castrated goat, as livid as a girl
who's been insulted for her choice to f-ck who she wants. I don't blame
her. And I'm glad it's not me she's coming after.
There's no cry of racism here. Don't even start on that bullsh-t.
Maybe there's a reason she chooses not to do black guys. Ever think
Monkey hops in his boat, paddles out into the middle of the pond, applies
bait to his rod (no pun intended) throws the line out 5 feet into the
pond and waits (nip, fayner, nip, nip). I think i got a bite here.
Public Sex, Celebrity and the Internet
Luke is a charismatic leader? I bet he just loves you. Women are so
gullible. You throw a few compliments in their direction and pretty
soon you have them tied around your little finger. So what exactly did
Luke say to you to get you to fall so completely under his spell?
I love this paragraph, especially the bit about "six best male friends."
Surely Luke has one best male friend, plus five other men he is stringing
along? Apparently Luke's charm works on (some) men, too. Luke has his
own "team" of men? So that is what they are calling it these days? You
know, there is a name for team players like these. Let's see, it has
three letters g - y - a, but not necessarily in that order.
Partying With AVN
Dialers writes on GFY:
Just got off the phone with them and no rooms at internext will be
allowed to have more than 20 people in them otherwise they will call
the cops to hold any type of 'party' you have to have a booth at the
show or they will call the cops tough sh-t i wont be blackmailed into
buying a booth when i dont need one keep an eye out about a party at
one of the clubs in the area i would rather pay extra and get a high
class location for an event rather than be extorted into buying something
that i dont need from avn
yeah tahts what i was told too. i have a bigass corner suite reserved
& i cant do sh-t with it. they called the cops on us last year because
of "fire hazards" and that kinda crap. but its just avn trying to control
every penny at that show.
Evan Xpays writes:
sounds like a threat to me- plan your party and go nuts anyway. they'll
send the security a few times before any cops show up and you can see
how long you can push it for. the over/under depends on who else is

parties going til 9am when karl bernard would show up with 10 hungry
canadians. don't believe the anti-party hype imho. the new generation
of webmasters has a responsibility to throw some sick in-room parties.
AVN for years would not review a studio's video, talk about that studio
or even give thenm a free plug if they didn't advertise in AVN. this
was over two years ago when they had the old CEO.

The Hedgehog speaks
film star Ron Jeremy on politics, labor unions and ... porn. by CJ
Born Ron Jeremy Hyatt on March 12, 1953, living legend of porn Ron
Jeremy has blazed a trail through mass media and the adult film industry
like no other person before or since.
After graduating from Cardoza High (Brooklyn) in 1971, he went on to
earn a master's degree from Queens College. By the mid-1970's Ron Jeremy
was working as a special education teacher in New York City, when he
was discovered by Playgirl magazine in its 'Boy Next Door' section when
his girlfriend submitted a picture of him. One year later in 1979, Ron
Jeremy was making his debut performance in an adult film with Samantha
Fox called Tigress And Other Man Eaters.' The rest is adult cinematic
Ron Jeremy, also known affectionately as The Hedgehog because of his
back hair, was kind enough to sit down for an interview recently at
Hazleton area adult club, Leave it to Beavers. Jeremy had performed
as an announcer that evening for Linn Thomas who is notable for being
the first model to ever appear as both a Playboy Playmate and Penthouse
Pet. Ron also spent the evening entertaining the audience with a stand-up
routine in between the dancers' shows.
After a chaotic autograph session Ron took the time to give this interview.
How do you feel about (porn star) Darren James and the recent HIV scare
in the (adult) industry? (This April several adult film stars tested
positive for the deadly virus.)
"Hey look, the guy [Darren James] got careless. My gut feeling is that
he went to Brazil. John Stagliano, The Buttman went to Brazil and came
back with HIV, because he mixed with a transsexual. I don't want to
cause rumors and say I know what Darren James has done, but my gut feeling
is that he played around with a transsexual. Because from what I understand
of the chances of girl to guy transmission and if you look at the research
of some of the leading doctors talk to clinics; talk to people you know
of that are aware of and witness my lifestyle; the people you've watched,
itt's very difficult to go girl to guy. In our industry in '97 a girl
had it. And she worked with guys during her period right in the height
of her infection before the antibodies started to simmer down to flu
symptoms, right? And guys worked with her during this bad period. Not
one guy caught it and she worked with like ten to fifteen guys. I don't
really believe that Darren got it from a girl. I have a hard time believing
that. It was a very isolated situation. He's not a very big star. Two
girls got infected."
How often does someone in the industry get checked for sexual diseases?
"Monthly. We get a check up every month. We have to."

proud as hell even *IF* the book is the work of one of porn's most despised
Being one of the people whom the book is dedicated to does not get
me a free copy, of course, but what the f-ck. this is about porn and
porn is about commerce and commerce ain't about free stuff unless giving
something for free is the pathway to selling something else for a tidy
profit. And giving me a free copy-possibly inscribed-ain't gonna put
any profits in the author's pockets. So from that perspective, I remain

free copy or no free copy. Hopefully, Mr. Ford won't charge me an autograph
fee for an inscription once I have a copy of his tome in my grubby fingers.
Just Another Day in the Valley Where ordinary homes are
put to extraordinary use
Sultan for LA Weekly:
It's time for lunch. The sounds of clattering plates and muffled conversations
drift upstairs. In cool, dark rooms, amber light glows through shades
drawn in the middle of the summer day. Someone is napping fitfully.
He's bored rather than tired. He wakes up with a feeling of dread. In
those first moments of confusion, he tries to assess which house he
is in and what he's doing there.
Downstairs, everyone has gathered in the large two-car garage. Folding
tables have been set up with an array of cold cuts: stacks of wheat
and rye bread, potato salad, paper bowls filled with cashews and M&M's.
There is a large platter of jumbo shrimp arranged in a circle around
a head of lettuce. A tall woman wearing a T-shirt and thong spears one
with a toothpick. Balancing paper plates filled with food, people drift
into the back yard, a large grassy area with uninterrupted views of
the San Fernando Valley. They look like friends and lovers having a
Sunday picnic as they lie about in small groups in the few areas shaded
by sycamore trees. To the far side of the yard, crew members are beginning
to set up movie lights and a stand with a large silver reflector. On
the lawn is a huge wind fan, and next to it Michael, the director, is
talking with his wife, Julie Anne, who's wearing a flowing pink dressing
gown with a white fur collar. Her clear acrylic high heels are sinking
into the grass, and he offers her his arm as she reaches back to pull
off her shoe. Directly behind them, near the edge of the yard where
the lawn ends abruptly in a vertical drop, stand 5-foot-tall letters
cut from plywood, painted white and anchored in the ground with diagonal
supports. DOOWYLLOH. It takes a moment to make sense of it, but then
it's as clear as the day: Facing out toward miles of subdivisions and
malls, a miniature version of the sign - Hollywood in the Valley.

Needs A Loving Home
A Fly on the Wall writes: "Here
is a cute dog named l-keford who needs a home (see the third dog down)."
2004-06-22: l-keford is a 4 yr old beautiful chocolate male. He is
muscular with a blocky head. He weighs about 71 pounds but needs to
gain a couple of pounds. He likes to run and jump after a tennis ball,
is not afraid of the water, is good with strangers, other dogs and cats,
is house trained and has been exposed to the crate. l-keford is not
an excessive puller on leash and takes treats very nicely. Commands
he knows: Sit, Down, Stay, Come heel, Leave It and Off. Tricks he knows:
Stand up on hind legs and Paw. His only faults I've seen are that he
will bark when first left alone for about 5 min. and even though he
does it fairly gently, he will sometimes jump up on you with his paws.
I think his previous owner let him stand up on him for affection and
had him bark before he threw the ball for him. I think l-keford would
do best with a family that takes him out for walks, throws the ball
for him, allows him inside the house alot, with another dog and/or a
cat and children over 10 yrs old., although I think he would get along
well in any situation. He's a dominant dog, but low grade, so needs
owners that make sure he knows what good manners are expected of him.
l-keford is very anxious for his new home. His previous owner had to
give him up because he is termanilly ill in the hospital.

* Asking authors for free books. A big foupe. Do not try it with me.
* Asking me for information I have just given you (either via email or

Trisha Uptown Interview
"How long have you been in Los Angeles?"
"About a week. I have a rental car, so driving out here is crazy.
I'm getting lost every turn I make.
"I was at Erotica LA. I've been doing interview after interview."
"Have you been to South Central yet [where the LA Riots flourished
"I wouldn't mind driving by quickly, just to see it."
"Your PR rep says you have a lot to say about health insurance."
"In my Don Goo contract, I worked out a deal where I get health
insurance. Before this, I did not have health insurance. I had to have
a couple of surgeries. I have a lot of female problems. Cervical cancer
"You've had cervical cancer?"
"I've had it several times. I just spent the last year paying off
all my medical bills. I am 100% debt free now. If you have a contract
girl, she is your responsibility. She is your investment. You should protect
your investment. Our bodies are important. We were doing the negotiations
during the HIV scare. I was thinking about these poor people with HIV
who probably don't have health insurance. I don't see why health insurance
shouldn't be more standard in the industry for the contract girl."
"What's your prognosis?"
"I'm fine. I've had a couple of surgeries. It's come back a couple
"I know that it is not that serious of a cancer. I know that 90%
of the time they can catch it and you're fine. If a girl doesn't have
the coverage to get an annual pap smear, they might not check it as early.
If a girl was to get cervical cancer and it got out of control, that could
affect the way she works. You don't want to mess with your pussy. That's
your money maker.
"The first time I was diagnosed with it, I was twelve.
"After an operation, I can't be penetrated for seven to ten days.
There's no photo shoots and filming for me, plus I'm accumulating all
these medical bills and prescriptions."
"I guess your life isn't all lollipops and blowjobs."
"Not at all."
"This is the real deal. Real life problems."
"That's one thing that they forget, that we are real people. We
have real life situations and crises every day. Even though, oh, you're
just getting f---ed and getting paid, living the dream, it's still a business
and we should be treated more as equal business than pieces of property."
"How has cancer changed you?"
"It's made me stronger. I feel like I can do anything."
"What do you want to do after you leave this industry?"
"I don't know. I want to stay in this industry as long as I can.
I wouldn't mind going behind the camera and maybe producing."
Kianna Dior Interview
I met Kianna almost a year ago on the set of the Shay Sights - Renee
LaRue movie Butterfly, which has yet to be edited, let alone distributed.
We met up again Tuesday night at DP Tonight.
"I'm looking through your website, Kianna.net.
What do you do on it? How much is you?"
"What do you mean?"
"Do you write any of it?"
"I didn't design it. I said what I liked and didn't like. One of
my fans helped me do it. I hired someone to design it. I just changed
it a few months ago.
"I chat on there almost every morning. I write in my journal once
a week. It's a fulltime job."
"How many hours a week do you put into it?"
"I don't know. I'm always thinking about it.
"I started out as a stripper in Vancouver. I had implants before
I started dancing. This is my second set. The one bag exploded. It leaked.
"I was in Thailand. I was riding a moped. I was cruising around
in my lime-green bikini and I wiped out.
"I was lying there. Ohmigod, I hope my nipple is still there. Finally,
a European couple pulled over to help me.
"About four years, I came here to do some photo shoots so I could
get paid more money for feature dancing."
"What were you expected to be when you grew up?"
"I expected to go into fashion. I have my aesthetics license for
facials, waxing. When I'm done with this, I'll probably open up a spa
or a little wellness center."
"Who talked you into doing pornography?"
"Shay Sights. First girl-girl scene I did was for an Internet company
in Florida. My first boy-girl was for Jim Lane. I was like, gee, thanks,
Shay. Don't take me to Vivid for my first one."
"What did you have to do for your first boy-girl scene?"
"Everything. It was nerve-racking."
"How did you feel afterwards?"
"I felt like, what the f--- just happened here. There's no going
back now. No, I didn't start crying. Hmm, I could probably sneak out without
anybody knowing. I've done at least 100 movies.
"I've gotten away without doing any anal."
"Not even in your private life?"
"I've tried. I've given it an honest effort."
"Why doesn't he just jam it in there?"
"Because I'd probably rip out whoever's eyes is doing that. I wish
I could do it."
"Why did you get implants?"
"I was going out with someone who was into fitness. I was working
out like crazy. I was getting up at 5 a.m. to run five miles. I was getting
so skinny, I was losing my boobs. He had a twin brother who's girlfriend
was a dancer. That's how I got into dancing. She had an enormous boob
job. You know how twin's are? [Competitive.]"
"Do they hurt your back?"
"Yeah. I have to get a massage at least every couple of weeks or
go to a chiropractor. Usually the massage therapists try to massage my
boobs too. Then they'd be paying me.
"The Industry has made me a more well-rounded person. I thank God
for taking me out of a square box. It made me a lot more open-minded.
I've gone to swing parties. Usually when you go to those things, there's
one good looking girl and you just get pounded on. I'm over that. I spent
a summer doing that and I figured, forget it.
"I really hate catching Chlamydia and any STD. That's the gross
part. Or somebody is unclean or disrespectful."
"What's it like trying to have relationships while you are in this
"I've given up. How's that? There are two types. One is the guy
who just wants you to support. Then there's the other type that says he's
ok with it. Then he wants to totally change you around. For the next couple
of years, I'm just going to concentrate on my career."
"What do you like to do in your spare time?"
"Spend time with my little dog Sofia. Shopping with my girlfriends.
Hiking. I love the water. I'm an earthy person.
"I answer all my emails personally. It's better. You don't have
to talk on the phone."
"How did you like DP Tonight?"
"A lot. There's no judgment on the show. There's Devon who does
not do anal and Selena Silver who does everything.
"Devon and I were in Hawaii for 9/11 so we had some extra time to
Who's Distributing The Ultimate Cytherea Collection?
James DiGiorgio writes:
I had an interesting phone call from Anarchy Pictures' production
honcho, Rocky Feller, today. Rocky told me he was holding in his hands
the ultimate, 5-DVD, all-Cytherea compilation set. According to Rocky,
the DVD set includes--in its five volumes--all the best of Cytherea
lifted from a whole bunch of different company's titles including some
of Anarchy's shows.
One problem though. Rocky says neither Anarchy, nor Python (its sister
company), have licensed any of its Cytherea scenes to anyone for the
purpose of compiling a Cythera Collection. And yet the collection includes
seven scenes from various Anarchy and Python titles! How'd that happen?
Pirates of the Pornibbean maybe? Ya think?
Rocky says the 5-DVDs include scenes from Cherry Box, Evil Angel, and
more. It even includes the Cytherea scene I shot for Smash Pictures,
"Secrets Exposed." Rocky says he's only aware of the Cytherea collection
because a fan of Cytherea's, at last weekend's Erotica L.A., gave Cy
the set as a gift. "Plus One," Cytherea's significant other, noticed
the DVDs and decided to show them to Rocky Feller. Oh yeah, I forgot
to mention that Rocky told me the DVD's art work/packaging includes
a prominent distributor's logo on it: Red Light District.

In Praise Of Mr Marcus
Aaron Clark writes:
He is one of my two best male performers, exactly because he's a got
a great personality and sense of humor that enlivens scenes, and --
at least with me, whom is all I can speak for -- when it's time for
him to fade and let the girl take center stage, he knows how! He's also
great at charming girls, most of whom love to work with him -- he's
been the gateway to more than one hottie happily deciding to cross that
color line. Unlike a lot of male performers of any shade, he actually
loves and appreciates women, as opposed to looking at them all as another
set of holes to be stretched ... though he's pretty good at that, too.
Heard these guys double-teamed Janine today for Vivid and P.T. declared
it the best sex scene he's ever seen ...
Mutt from Toronto writes:
Both guys are boring to watch - Sean is very relaxed and smooth, Marcus
same way but he has the cooler hip hop generation look that interracial
fans like. Laid back guys, laid back scenes if u axe me. Justin Slayer
is the best black male talent now. not putting down sean or Mr. Marcus,
both seem like nice guys and are good cocksmen - just too laid back
for me. It's a delicate balance, I also don't like watching guys who
think they are the whole show and the girl is just an accessory to help
him show off his skills.
Big Beautiful Porn Stars
contract girl Devinn Lane writes on AdultDVDTalk.com:
I was just asked to lose 10-15 (that would put me at at whopping 105-110)
and made a comment that I was perfectly happy the way I am. I have found
that my fan base is built by those that like a voluptuous woman and
aren't considered "perfect" by the industry standard. I just couldn't
figure out when being a size 6 was considered too heavy or unattractive.Thank
you for all of these posts it really made my day.
Alexandria Quinn is another perfect example, I mean she had a killer
body in Buttman's Ultimate Workout for example, a huge juicy butt but
after her comeback she was toned down too much, no more butt.
Another example: Kimberly Chambers, when she first started she had
such a perfect body with a lot of fat on the right places but then she
decided to hit the gym and now it's all gone.
Skinny girls like Rebecca Lord or Lil' Cinderella are a huge turn off
for me because they're like walking skeletons.
Tricia Devereaux posts:
I tend to be a fan of curvy, athletic girls. No bony chicks for me,
but no cellulite either please. FYI - I saw Caroline Pierce at CES this
last January, and she looked awesome, IMO. She HAD lost a lot of weight,
but she is by no means skinny right now. Just big and bottom-curvy and
more toned. And she looked REALLY happy.
As for girls like Katja Kassin or Krysti Lynn, they are the type of
girl who are blessed from birth with a certain proportionality that
normally doesn't exist in nature. This is awkward to say about Kristi,
but I thought that in her last few movies, the cellulite that she had
developed in her thighs and stomach was turning me off. But when she
was a little more toned and still womanly, it was great. Katja's got
that same type of body right now. Toned but gorgeously curvy.
Me, no matter how much I try, if I work out too much, I get too skinny
and lose my ass. If I work out less, I get an ass but a lot of cellulite
to go with it.
Katja Kassin writes:
When I was younger I wanted to be super slim - I wanted to look like
the Calvin Klein girls from the commercials in the fashion magazines.
Men always complimented me on my butt but I never took them for serious.
All my boyfriends loved my backside but I thought they just wanted to
make me feel more comfortable.
I never really tried to loose weight - not seriously enough to mention
it here. When I was still at school I found myself to heavy but I just
thought that's the way I am. And I started thinking about other things
about myself - I smiled at people all the time - somehow they'd smile
back at me I believed...
Jewel DeNyle posts:
I've been one of the more curvie girls. I went through a bad phase
of being thin when I first started as I did what all the girls do starve
myself and think thin is better. Then I became known for my ass so I
just stayed happy and healthy. I'm in the best shape of my life now
and I'm older. I work out five times a week three times are with a personal
trainer as I did go through a time period where I was a little porky
but thanks to 16yrs of gymnastics I had the athletic build to put the
weight on and carry it well. I think at this time in my life I look
and feel my best and I try to tell the girls tone up eat right go for
the healthy look because that's what's sexy not the crack whore look.
Kylie Ireland posts:
Just like I like to say about the religious right: if you don't like
porn don't watch it. In this case a person should not judge another,
especially when the accuser doesn't know the circumstances - if you
don't care for her body type don't watch her. There is something for
everyone in porn. Being one of the "curvier" actresses who has gone
the gamut of weights & sizes I have a lot of opinions to share. But
then again, don't I always? I'm an Irish Gemini after all.
Webmasters Whine: Make 'Click Me' More Positive
PornKings writes on JBM:
I think it's gonna be great I would interview more internet webmasters
Personally I would feature the positive things more since we already
get so much negative exposure. the girls are great but I would cut back
on that portion. talk about All the good times we have at the trade
shows. Allot of young people who became successful. through hard work.
How we do business together unlike mainstream with exits etc. How we
provide an outlet for people who like adult entertainment. Even if an
interview is negative throw a positive spin to it. Like in every business
you have your bad apples etc. but all and all the industry consist of
many good hearted people and is just a form of entertainment that most
people have watched or watch otherwise we wouldn't be around. How sex
is part of all our lives and it shouldn't be frowned on. you guys are
in control I would focus on the positive stuff like our first amendment

I was a loser short fat kid on the pc looking at porn. Now I am short
fat, live in a big house, drive a Ferrari, and have a beautiful wife.
I understand that this is just a start...and a rough draft. The interviews
are really good and will be even better after you get more at internext.
But as a documentary it seems to be missing a point. It has a subject...a
good one, but there doesn't seem to be any kind of cohesiveness. Kind
of like Pornkings said, you need to throw a spin on it, give it a meaning.
Why are you making this documentary, what message are you trying to
impart by putting this out there?
I didn't recognize Dani with her short hair. It looks like she has
left her porn modeling days behind her. I'd like to see more big names,
and someone suggested showing the bling things like homes, cars, boats.
Dani use to have a big boat in Marina del Rey and did some great photo
shoots on her boat. Those were the golden days in '95 and '96. Are you
going to interview Gary Kremen? How about Serge? Jenna? Asia?
DANNY C'S WEEKLY TIP: THE DANGERS OF CARELESS BOARD POSTING!
From the JustBlowMe webmaster
If there is one thing that has consistently bothered me on the boards
over the years, it's the fact that no amount of emoticons can clearly
convey mood or intent the way that face-to-face conversation can. If
there is a misunderstanding in a face-to-face conversation, it can usually
be cleared up immediately... not so on the boards. Many board misunderstandings
are never resolved... and without facial expressions and body language,
sometimes trying to fix a misunderstanding will only dig the hole deeper.
One thing to always keep in mind is that different words/phrases can
have different meanings to different people, or according to context,
or perspective. In last week's newsletter, I made a passing reference
to "webmasters". In the context I was using the word, and from my own
perspective, I was using the word webmaster to refer to affiliates.
As a person working behind the scenes at an affiliate program, convenient
terminology is necessary... so we tend to use the word webmaster as
a blanket term referring to our affiliates. To others, or in a different
context, the word can mean something entirely different... and in fact
I've seen several heated debates discussing the exact definition of
So if you care about what other people think of you (and I know many
don't!), then it might help to reread all board posts from the perspective
of others. If you come across like you're angry, but you're not, then
consider revising. If it may offend a group that you have no intentions
of offending, then you might reword it a bit. And if you're reading
a post that upsets you, consider the angles the poster may be taking
before lashing back at them.
Now, if anyone would like a hug...
Italy's 'king of porn' retires with 1,300 films under
ROME, June 23 (AFP) - Retiring from porn stardom with 1,300 films under
his belt, Italian actor Rocco Siffredi claims he is still up to the
job but is quitting for "family reasons," the daily La Repubblica reported.
"My children are growing up, and I can no longer just say 'Dad is
going to work to make money for the family.' They want to know more,"
he said of his two sons, aged seven and four. "It's not my body, which
is holding up very well, but for family reasons," he told the paper.
"When I started 20 years ago, it bothered me to see old guys around
40 filming with much younger girls. Now I'm 40 and it's time to go,"
he said, adding that he would go into filming and producing.
Siffredi described his wife of 13 years, Rosa, a former Miss Hungary,
as "sweet and intelligent."
"She absolutely knows the difference between sex for work and sex for
love," he said.
SEO Tip On Avoiding a Google Ban
from Hoes.com writes on GFY:
Stop trading based solely on Page Rank! You need to realize that google
is wising up to this. They don't only factor PR based on your trades
with other sites with a high PR. You need inbound links from relevant
sites. A good mix of relevant trades and relevant, targeted inbound
links. It will help to keep you off google's ban radar. Every day I
get 10-20 people sending me notes like this: "I've got a PR5, let's
trade! It will help both of us." Bullsh-t, it won't help a damn thing.
Especially if you are trading with a whoring PR link farm which alot
of sites are becoming. Be careful and only use tactics that would logically
lead a surfer to the content they are looking for. That's the ultimate
goal of a search engine, isn't it?
Must-See TV 'Click Here' Doc On History Of Porn Internet
writes on GFY:
I have something really f-cking cool to show you guys - old timers
and newbs alike. There's a dude some of you know, many of you don't,
he runs a site called NetVideoGirls aka the California Pimp - a site
I've been touting to people for years cuz it's the best damn reality
site ever. I could write a thesis on why this site works and does killer
biz but i'll spare you that.
About 6 months to a year ago Cali Pimp started telling me about a secret
project of his, what he simply calls 'the doc' - a film about US, webmasters,
porn people, , chronicling the rise and let's hope not the fall of this
business. i feel privileged to have been seeing bits and pieces of it
as he's gone along - today Pimp called me and said it's a special day
- he finally wants the rest of you to see some of his epic. THIS IS
JUST A ROUGH CUT - NOT THE ENTIRE DOCUMENTARY! There's tons of more
footage, narration, graphics and work still left but he's ready to get
some feedback from the people this film is about. You'll see lots of
familiar faces in this 30 minutes - from Danni Ashe to Joee to Roger
from Pornkings to R-n Levi. Some great stuff with Dirty Danza of Dirty
Dicksuckers and the girls who are in the front lines of this biz, without
whom there would be no biz. Porn whores as Dirty Danza affectionately
calls them. He loves them so much he'll tell you he married one. Anyway
time to roll the film, hope you enjoy it, it's Pimp's baby. REAL PLAYER
REQUIRED! IT'S WORTH THE DOWNLOAD.
Dirty_DS, who appears in the documentary waving a twelve gauge shotgun
and demonstrating an AK47, writes:
I am so non violent.. but it seems the husbands/boyfriends think they
have to come at me when I degrade there wives.. I just don't understand
Just refer to the other part where you're on camera saying how you
slap them and grab their hair and start ramming your dick down their
throat so fast they dont really have a chance to react. Maybe that's
why? Do the girls consent to this, or just submit to it since it all
happens so fast? I dont mind telling you that your part in this documentary
was the most disturbing for me. I avoid content like that, which is
my personal choice.
They called my ad.. they are whores.. and it does sell.. if you don;t
believe it promote me for a few days and watch your pocket get fatter...
what are you promoting now?
Well, it's not a money issue for me. That is to say, my choice would
just be to not promote some types of things regardless of income potential.
I've never been into rough sex, it turns me off.. I remember surfing
some tgp once to see what they were listing and I clicked a movie and
this girl was giving a blowjob then WHAM! She gets slapped so f-cking
hard she chokes and looks scared as sh-t. I shut that thing off so fast
man and closed my whole browser. So you see, I have a much different
view of things is all.

I've been working with The Cali Pimp on a consulting basis for the
past few months on a number of cool projects. The most exciting one
that will be released in the next year is a THIS documentary about the
biz tentatively called "CLICK HERE". There are some cool ass interviews
with some people that will surprise you, and interviews with some f-cked
up people and talent too. It's a really broad stroke!
As Mutt mentioned, the interviews feature JoeE, Fantasyman, Dani Ashe,
J$TYLE$, RogerV, D$, KB, Dirty_DS, and a whole cast of real life characters
that you know or might have heard of! BTW - I've been having a blast
Consulting for the Cali Pimp and Net Video Girls over the past few months,
and we're looking forward to blowing up his webamster program in the
near future too!
I like the interviews and how everything is layed out, so kudos on
that...but the overall theme of the documentary was pretty negative,
so I can see it hurting the industries image even more...but maybe thats
because that is our reality.
Jonathan Silverstein replies:
They'll be mre balance ... what you've seen is VERY ROUGH CUT - more
to get a reaction from YOU GUYS! They'll be a lot more positive stuff
in there, and a lot more "business" interviews that are VERY positive!
The fact is that a lot of the sh-t the content girls say and the interviews
with guys shooting content are accurate FOR THEM. Sure, there's the
other side too! Girls that don't film abusive sh-t and LOVE what they
do ... that will come out! ... and there's stuff with content guys that
aren't abusive ... and those will come out too ... there's just not
a lot of sizzle in that steak ... and we gave you a little sizzle! Rest
assured ... there's hours of interviews that aren't in this cut, and
we STILL HAVE INTENEXT TO FILM THROUGH!

The video started out good, but ended up SUCKING f-ckING ASS! I'm sorry,

might see that PIECE OF TRASH and think that's how this business is.
What you show in that film is NOT something that I am a part of, nor
is it something I'd WANT to be a part of... The world doesn't revolve
around LA, guys. That video might be a documentary about the way things
work in LA or a few other parts of the world, but it is NOT indicative

Max Hardcore and two other hardcore pornographers are going to be hit

Selena Silver, Kianna Dior, Harmony, Emily Da Vinci On
It was another LA Direct Models
night at Digital Playground.
Jesse Jane was away. Devon opened the show by herself. She was soon joined
by her friend Kianna Dior, who's half Chinese and a quarter Scottish and
a quarter Irish. Naturally D-cupped, she has small implants to move to
a full D cup.
I hear Jodie Moore, a former Private girl from Australia, has left porn
because of the HIV outbreak. She and her husband are working in a mainstream
TV reality show.
I meet Harmony,
a stunning 20 year blonde from Miami, Florida, with C cup natural breasts.
Emily DA Vinci sits in the audience with her agent Ben English.
Devon says Digital Playground won't do Erotica LA anymore. They did not
show this year.
I surmise that booth space is too expensive and the return is too little.
Too many looky loos and too little business.
JesseJane.com should finally open in mid-July.
I notice Selena Silver has a bruise on her leg. She bruises easily. She
got this one from a lesbian scene with Britney Foster.
Harmony says she lost her virginity at age 15. Her best sex ever was
in a nightclub with a guy she didn't know. Not even his name. Never talked
to him again.
She's done ten movies and prefers to have sex with guys than girls.
Harmony and her mom invest in real estate. They buy run-down homes in
good neighborhoods, fix them up and sell them two years later for double
the price they paid.
Emily is French. She appears in about 40 movies. She lost her virginity
at 16. Like Kianna, Devon and Harmony, she won't do black guys.

Reason magazine associate editor Brian Doherty drives up at 12:30PM June
22, 2004, in a white Subaru. It looks like a pigsty inside. Books, magazines,
newspapers, wrappers, dental floss, pillows, child pornography...
Just kidding about the last entry.
Brian jumps out. He's short, gray-haired, and bookish.
We sit down for lunch and discuss his first published book.
"Why did you write it?"
"I began going to the event in 1995. There were 4,000 people there.
"We're building a temporary city in the Black Rock Desert, in the
lakebed, every year, Black Rock City, in the middle of the desert, 70
miles outside of Reno. I found the people interesting. How fun and funny
and lively and dangerous they were to be around. It struck me from the
beginning as a writer's dream. It had an underground feel to it. It felt
like it would be a betrayal of that community to talk about it to outsiders.
"Last year, there were 30,000 people there. Somewhere in the middle,
I realized it was not meant to be an underground secret. That was an affectation
that I picked up from other people.
"I wrote a political piece about it for the February 2000 issue
of Reason, a political magazine. How is it that this danger and illegality-filled
event come to a rapprochement with the federal government, who owns the
land (Bureau of Land Management) on which the event is held.
"I've been working at Reason since the summer of 1994.
"My first draft of the story was 12,000 words, more than twice as
long as the version that ran. I realized I was sitting on top of a book's
worth of material.
"Getting a book deal took three years. It took two agents and dozens
of rejections. For nine months, it was my fulltime task finishing the
"How does being at Burning Man make you feel, as opposed to your
"I didn't make myself the star of the book. But I sit at a desk
all day. I'm a writer. I'm a reader. I rarely do anything that interacts
with the physical world. Burning Man makes me confront the physical world
in a vivid way.
"There is no life in the Black Rock Desert. It's hot. If you don't
go with an RV, it's just you and the blank world and the temperature.
It wipes away everything that is habitual about my life for two weeks.
Then I go back to my normal life, where I read eight to ten hours a day.
Most of my work involves reading. Most of my leisure involves reading.
I'm constantly listening to music. When I'm at home, there's a record
playing in my house. When I'm out there, I don't get to listen to any
music of my choice and I don't read anything. I never drink caffeine out
there. Here, I never go half a day without caffeine.
"It's an interesting lesson in your own malleability. People are
very big at adopting fake identities out there. I don't do that explicitly.
I don't dress funny.
"Most important, every time I'm out there, I apprentice myself to
some large art project. I get to be a part of a team, something which
has always been important to me. I like groups more than one-on-one relationships.
I like to be part of gangs pursuing goals of interest to me. Out there
I get to weld, drill, dig. I learn skills and to interact with the physical
world. That's an opportunity I never get to pursue anywhere else but there.
"The event lasts a week. I usually go a week early and leave a week
late. It's exhilarating, life-affirming, fascinating for me to do these
things and be surrounded by thousands of interesting people. The default
assumption is that you are all buddies out there."
"What do your parents think about Burning Man?"
"I don't know. They haven't read my book. I wouldn't be surprised
if my dad started reading the book. I wouldn't be surprised if my mother
didn't. If they do read it, I would imagine that at the end of it they
would not think that Burning Man was something that they would enjoy going
to and probably not something that they would approve of.
"My wife has been to Burning Man three times. She doesn't like it.
She thought she might like it. After three years, she's indulged me enough.
She doesn't like the kind of person you find there. That hippy dippiness
aggravates her. She has more of a punk harsh face to the world. She hates
the physical environment. She's not into consuming lots of food and water.
"I ended up making the book more character driven than idea driven.
When I went in, I thought it would be 50/50. It ended up 95% character
Brian got into punk rock in 1984 while in 11th grade in Jacksonville,
Florida. A year later, he embraced the punk club scene and started playing
bass guitar in various bands from 1986-95 (Misfits Trend, Target Practice,
Touch N' Go Bullethead, The Jeffersons, Turbo Satan, The Sawdust Seizures,
Satellite). I ran a record label from 1993-99, The Cherry Smashers.
"I never adopted the look."
"What do you think of the Australian punk band Air Supply?"
"I've enjoyed some performances of the Australian punk band Air
Supply. I have a big tent vision of punk. It became in the '90s as a way
of life. Short, aggressive, fast-paced songs with lyrics barked out by
angry bald guys."
"What's your favorite Air Supply song?"
"The One That You Love. I once did karaoke to Making Love Out of
Nothing At All."
"What's your favorite Barry Manilow song?"
"His version of Ships. 'We're two ships that pass in the night.'"
"What's your favorite John Denver song?"
"The first record I ever bought with my own money was John Denver's
Greatest Hits. I still like Rocky Mountain High.
"One of the principles I try to live by is staying true to my life.
I'm big on continuity but I must confess I have not maintained an enthusiasm
for John Denver."
"Why don't you bring a Sony Walkman to Burning Man so you can listen
"I tend to be lazy in my preparations. For three weeks, I eat nothing
but room-temperature prepared food of the canned vegetables, beef jerky
variety. The same with music. I've gotten used to that it is a break from
my habitual obsession to listening to music at all times. I know that
I am listening to more music and enjoying it less. I am an obsessive record
collector. I have about 5,000 records and 2,000 CDs. I began collecting
in the mid '80s. I will buy any given thing depending on how I find it
"Are you really a fan of Australian pop?"
"My favorite group is Air Supply. It takes me back to when I was
13 and my emotions were most honest and vivid."
"Go to Burning Man. Vivid is the word we use to describe what it
"I hear there is video of you participating in a public orgy at
"I do not believe so. Public orgies, no? We are getting into territory
here, Luke, where I will have to, due to the sensitivities of my wife
who will probably read this, decline from speaking."
"Burning Man does not sound like a nice place for sex."
"It is not a comfortable place for sex. Once we break the surface
of the Black Rock Playa, it becomes this fine omnipresent black rock power
that has a grit to it. Most people there will be dirty and dusty and probably
smelly. You are not showering as much as normal. But Burning Man does
have a sensual atmosphere. I have never witnessed an orgy. I have witnessed
one-on-one sex acts."
"What's the ratio of men to women?"
"I guess about 60/40 men to women. Medium age? I'd guess 25-40.
Most people under 25 are not going to be able to afford it. It also happens
the first week before Labor Day, the first week of my college's semesters.
"They sell tickets on a sliding scale from $145-250. They stop selling
tickets at the door on Thursday night. Certain people in the community
thought that the wrong element was coming out on the weekend. The man
burns Saturday night. Half the city tends to leave on Sunday, and half
on Monday. We're all leaving down one dirt road which leads to one two-lane
highway which is 70 miles back to Reno.
"People find themselves behaving in a different way at Burning Man.
They're nice. It's a communal feeling."
"What's the racial make-up?"
"Almost entirely Caucasian."
"Do you think that that accounts for the general feeling of niceness?"
Brian chuckles. "Well, that's a very interesting question.
"I believe that the self-selecting nature of Burning Man would and
could cut through racial divides. That said, we haven't tested it yet.
In an average year there, I probably see about ten black people.
"One year, one of the people on my work team was black. For a couple
of days, he and I and some other people were digging a giant hole. Just
for amusement, we began chaining ourselves together. I don't think we
were thinking about the racialness of it."
"How do white people keep the word of it away from black people?"
"Word of it is spread through a nexis of a certain kind of community.
Channels that are not intentionally white-only but are white-only. Hipsters
who are in touch with these underground currents of culture. Hippies,
punks and gearheads."
"Do you take any illegal drugs at Burning Man?"
"How many people at Burning Man do you think are active in an organized
"Very few. The religious vibe out there is gooey modern syncretistic
pagan. There are Christian ministers, some who shout fire and brimstone.
Some are ecumenical happy loving Christians. There are a lot of people
doing energy stuff. I've never knowingly met an Orthodox Jew there."
"Do you believe in God?"
"I think of Burning Man as a secular reach for community and the
"I think that is exactly correct. Community is one of the buzz words
of the Burning Man world. I tend to be a shy and insular person. I don't
interact with strangers."
Brian burps in the middle of the last word.
"Strippers?" I ask.
"I interact a lot with strippers out there. Not so much with strangers.
People form small camps out there. I don't feel comfortable with more
than 150 people."
"Do you find it aesthetically pleasing for one man to place his
penis in the buttocks of another man?"
"I've read a lot of your interviews. Do you make it a habit to ask
uncomfortable questions of race and homosexuality at every interview?"
"I have little memory of the writing process of this book. I was
on ephedra. I was sleeping three hours a night for seven weeks. I was
listening to an oldies station constantly. It all became a blur.
"I've never desired a huge amount of give-and-take with readers.
Reason.com's comment section is very disturbing to me. I don't want to
read them but I find myself reading them. That level of laying yourself
out there, I'm not completely comfortable with.
"I tend to go out of town every weekend.
"I don't vote. I'm not registered with any political party."
Sneak Peak At Internet Porn Documentary
I saw a 30 minute version of a forthcoming feature documentary on the
Internet porn business by NetVideogirls.com.
I saw interviews with Joseph Elkind, Danni Ashe, Ron Levi, Tim from TopBucks,
Roger from PornKings (shot against an ocean background), and porn chicks
Nadia Rio (longs to be in magazines and on billboards, who did Max Black),
The Nikki Knox interview was shot in a hotel room at 2AM in Van Nuys.
Her boyfriend was standing over her, a foot away from the documentarian,
with tears in his eyes, making sure the documentarian doesn't touch her.
The boyfriend is now in jail for murder. He was in jail for eight years.
He came to Los Angeles with her for six weeks and then went back to jail.
Kevin, Darren Blatt Return Home
Brothers Kevin and Darren Blatt returned home to Cleveland over the weekend.
Never one to pass up an opportunity to do media, Kevin appeared on two
radio stations to plug Red Light District's new Paris Hilton tape.
Rob Spallone Update
"What are you doing?"
"I'm moving to my office in Chatsworth."
"Are you still keeping an office at Jim South's?"
"No. I'll keep an office inside his office. I sold my house in two
"I've just been working, packing, going to printers, getting the
company [Lowdown Productions] going. If I can find two old ladies, two
mature ladies over 40, I'd like to shoot them. They should call Ron Sullivan
or Jim South."
Gay Star Brett Wolfe On Straight Porn's HIV Problems
The thing is, they do not use protection/condoms in the process of
making their films. Although they are regularly tested and must provide
test results upon arrival of the sets, they still engage in unprotected
sex on camera. And we all know that there is a time gap in the HIV testing
process. I am glad that they take those steps, but there is obviously
a flaw in the system. It comes down to using protection on film.
And that leads to the main difference between the gay and straight
porn communities and why there is no shutdown on our sets. Except for
a small fetish market (barebacking films) we all use protection on the
sets of our films. All of the Major companies require protected sex
and you will always see others as well as me getting f-cked with a sheathed
piece of meat. That's the way it should be. Protected sex is obviously
the way to go.
This leads into my opinion of barebacking on film, and I preface this
by saying "on film" as I can't make judgments on what people do in their
private lives. But as an entertainer in the adult community I can speak
on the issues as it pertains to the film making process and the ramifications
unsafe sex may have.
I had the luxury of growing up in San Francisco, spending the most
of my 20's in Los Angeles and now sitting pretty in Chicago. I had the
comfort of spending my life in major metropolitan cities, wherein which
I had access to education and services that focused on gay issues including
HIV and AIDS protection. I had the luxury of knowing gay people, having
gay friends and comfortably accepting my sexuality. Others do not always
have those luxuries. And that is where the problem lies.
Imagine a closeted gay teenager in the middle of some small southern
town, a town that does not address the needs of gays, a town that does
not offer up education on adult sexuality. He has no role models or
gay figures to look up to and has only his imagination and possibly
an appropriated gay porn flick (trust me, as a teen I found ways - sex
is a very driving passion). So he pops in the video and watches two
hot men getting it on, f-cking up a storm, condomless. This is the time
in our lives where we start our personal educations, where we develop
our process of sexual philosophy. He grows up.moves to the big city
and only knows the sex that he saw on film. He sleeps with his first
guy and BAM. welcome to the world of HIV!
I use this teenager as an example, but there are people all over the
world, of all ages who really just don't educate themselves, to watch
porn does not require an education and a simple message explaining the
safety issues in the opening credits of a film do not solve the problem.
The only way to provide strong sexual role models in film are to provide
that all the models where protection. It sets a standard. AIDS is still
a very scary disease.
Do I think barebacking films are hot? f-ck yeah! I refuse to lie to
you. But does that make it right or appropriate? No. Will I ever make
a bareback film? No. I have a part to play in this world and to educate
people on the safety issues of sexuality is one of the roles that I
was destined to play. So back to the main issue, the straight porn community
is now facing what I think the gay porn community has been handling
with class all along. You must protect yourselves. Wear a condom!
Jenna Lewis Sex Video
When a guest stint on "Nash Bridges" just isn't enough: is "Survivor:
Lewis the latest tier-C celeb to extend her fifteen minutes by allegedly
appearing in an alleged sex video, allegedly? Take a look at these preview
clips and vidcaps and judge for yourself.
Jenna Lewis Sex
Tape (vidcaps, .wmv preview video, and download info @ realitytail.com
- thanks Philip)
Update: From a Fleshbot reader who sent us a BitTorrent
file of the video comes this report: "I have to say that this is absolutely
better in every respect than the Paris video. From Jenna's plea to burn
the tape (a la Inspector Gadget) to her slapping her jizz covered brests
together and saying 'this is the sound of marriage' the whole thing
was classic." Thanks, Monkey!

Update More on the Jenna Lewis Sex Video at Reality
TV World: "(A) quick check of the site's domain registration information
shows that the domain was registered on May 3, 2004 (the Monday following
the couple's wedding) - a fact that when combined with the couple's
run to the altar, has sparked speculation that either Jenna or Travis
themselves might have had a role in its distribution." Really, who needs
to pay a PR hack to generate interest in one's flagging career when
all you need is a camcorder and a whole lot of nerve? (realitytvworld.com,

Law professor Eugene Volokh writes:
Within about ten years, there will probably be software that can merge
people's photographs and voices with movies that depict someone else.
This is of course often already done manually with photographs; but
a sophisticated computer program can do it automatically and seamlessly,
for a whole movie. And it can deal with multiple scenes where the person
is shown from different angles doing different things.
The person running the program would give it a file containing a movie,
and a few files containing a person's photographs and possibly voice
recordings. He would also tell the program which character is to be
altered to fit these photos and voice recordings. The program would
replace all the character's appearances with the new person, and would
try to adjust the character's spoken words to match the new person's
voice. (This isn't an easy task; even finding all the images of a particular
character in a movie is nontrivial, but imagine that the program contains
the image recognition software needed to do that.)
In Defense Of Ed Powers
DGross writes on RAME:
-Ed Powers is the pioneer in the Gonzo genre.
-Ed Powers may not have the largest penis in the business, but schmoozes
better than any woodsman.
-Ed Powers has broken in more pornstars than other director/producer/talent:
and many more.
-Most prolific producer with over 500 directed titles and counting.
- Ed is concerned over the well-being of performers and fellow human
beings and is using condom-only action.
Craig Vasiloff Fired From Razor Mag
Craig Knight aka Vasiloff was Luke's boss (a good one) at FANtastic magazine
from January 1999 to the end of March 2000.
Richard Botto is someone I've known and written about for years.
RAZOR publisher Richard Botto has fired editor in chief Craig Knight
after the mag falsely claimed that a feature on embattled radio host
Howard Stern included an "exclusive interview." Stern has refused all
interviews ever since the FCC began targeting his show in its McCarthy-esque
"indecency" witch hunt. This article, by Stern pal and former show regular
A.J. Benza, was no exception, but it didn't stop Razor's publicists
from touting the phony one-on-one. According to a source, "Botto was
so fed up with Knight's antics and the recent controversy surrounding
the A.J. Benza/Howard Stern flap, he told the staff to stay and told
Knight to stay home." But Botto may be using Knight as a scapegoat.
The publisher was made to look foolish when Stern claimed that Botto's
people were using Stern's name in an attempt to get free loot for a
party celebrating the issue. When Botto called Stern's show to deny
the charge last week, Stern produced a note from a Razor employee to
the owner of popular boutique Ricky's demanding free party favors. Knight
could not be reached at his unlisted number.
