Adventures in Virginity: The Foolproof Wisdom of Underage Drinking

At fourteen I was a junky, addicted to a drug I had yet to experience. Awkward hugs were my methadone–the closest I could get to what I truly craved. Freshman year I charted my days in terms of hugs, mapping a route through the halls of Anderson High School that yield the greatest percentage of…

Skin Diamond in the Rough

In the diamond trade, perfection is only an idea. The worth of a stone is measured by both its rarity and its inclusions. Tiny imperfections give a gem its identity and its unique shine. Likewise, an adult performer can be measured both by the rarity of her look, and by the collection of kinks that…

The Annotated Ela Darling

This interview could be described as “footnotes,” as I was conscripted to rub Ela Darling’s feet during our entire conversation. She was blistered and bruised from wearing heels all day at the 2015 AEE Expo. Heels don’t fit her. Ela’s feet are more accustomed to slipping into cowboy boots, or curling up beneath a thick book,…

The Princess of Porn, Tasha Reign

Growing up, Tasha Reign fantasized about becoming either a princess or a porn star. In a way, she became both. An Orange County native and former Hooters Girl, Reign appeared on the third season of MTV’s Laguna Beach. Aerobic pole dancing lessons led to Reign stripping at Silver Reign. While dancing nights and attending UCLA…

Adventures in Virginity: Skateboarding and other Crimes of Misdirected Passion

Our Oldsmobile slammed into the back of the van in slow motion, or maybe it just felt that way due to the slowed-down gangster-rap of DJ Screw blasting from the rattling speakers. None of the skaters in our car were old enough to drive, so it didn’t seem like that much worse of a decision…

Dana Vespoli’s Rubber Fist of Defiance

Describing Dana Vespoli as just a pornographer is like labeling Andy Warhol as just a silkscreen printer. She defies definition. Vespoli is a shy subversive, a feminist shunned by feminists, a reclusive porn revolutionist. Online piracy’s decimation of the adult industry has created a bottleneck effect, leaving an ever shrinking population of devotees. While some…

Impressionistic Porn: A Portrait of Carter Cruise on Set

“If I have to talk about a dick in my ass for two more minutes I’m going to freak out,” Carter Cruise says. “I just can’t talk about James Deen’s penis that much.” Cruise sits in the makeup chair, sipping coffee and chatting with the director, Derek Dozer, on the kind of behind the scenes…

The Perfect Stormy: On Set with Stormy Daniels

“Do you want to be in a scene with Asa Akira?” Stormy Daniels asked me on the set of her latest pair of feature films for Wicked: “Getting Cozy” and “Girls’ Night.” I’d been preparing for this moment my entire life with marathon masturbation sessions and endless hours of tweezing my man-bush into a camera-ready,…

Dana DeArmond and the Survival of the Filthiest

“The other girls are the pretty ones,” Dana DeArmond told me the first time we met on the set of Wicked’s feature film, “Girls’ Night.” “They just bring me in to fuck.” That day DeArmond was a last minute replacement in a five-woman orgy. Despite being an alternate, she completely dominated the scene, twisting it…
