Hot Girls Wanted Series Launches On Netflix

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

I was one of the loudest critics of the Rashida Jones produced documentary Hot Girls Wanted, the film which focused on the recruitment of women to the porn industry in Florida.

A clear polemic though it was, it was a shame that it chose to paint all aspects of porn as negative. Pleasingly though, the spin-off series, Hot Girls Wanted: Turned On, appears to have not only addressed many of these criticisms but also actively celebrate the positive things going on in porn.

The series is available for streaming on Netflix and an interview with Jones, Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus about the series from Rolling Stone can be read here.

Porn Production Halting Lifted

Friday, April 21st, 2017

The brief production half that was put in place after news that an adult performer had tested positive for HIV has been lifted after the following statement made by Eric Paul Leie, the executive director of the Free Speech Coalition:-

———————

We can now confirm the positive test by an adult film performer on Saturday was from an exposure in their personal life during a hiatus in filming, and did not in any way compromise or affect the performer pool. The PASS system was alerted on Saturday when the performer attempted to return to work after a twenty-five day break. No other adult performers were exposed to or contracted the virus.

The performer had last performed on-set nearly a month ago, on March 24, on the same day as they last tested negative for the full STI panel. That shoot was a toy-only shoot that did not involve any fluid exchange or other mode for viral transmission.

 The performer has worked diligently with PASS medical advisors and administrators to reconstruct a viral genealogy that includes contacts in both their personal and work lives. All partners, regardless of their relationship to the adult industry, have been notified.

While none of the performer’s shoots carried a significant risk of transmission, and all fell outside the possible window of transmission, PASS protocols dictated a proactive testing of all performer partners within the last two months once a possible positive test is returned. While the science behind the genealogy is clear, we understand that HIV transmission is an emotional issue as well. As such, we have provided free retests for the performer’s scene partners from the past two months when requested.

“While we understand that production holds are difficult for performers as well as producers, they are essential to the safety and integrity of the performer pool,’ said Eric Paul Leue, Executive Director of the Free Speech Coalition. “A production hold is the sign of a functional system protecting adult performers. The PASS system has once again successfully prevented any transmission of HIV on a regulated adult set, as it has for over ten years. We are working with the performer to get them to the resources and treatment to help manage their status, and appreciate their commitment, honesty and participation.

“We ask that everyone respect and protect the privacy of the performer and have empathy. We are working with the performer and PASS medical advisors to facilitate linkage to care and provide support.”

Barring any further developments, production hold will be lifted on Wednesday, April 19, 2017. However, the PASS database will be unlocked today, so that performers may retest in order to be cleared for work, and plan for travel and upcoming shoots.

Existing PASS tests which have not expired are still valid. Additionally, select PASS affiliated clinics, including TTS Northridge, TTS Vegas and CET Sherman Oaks, will offer extended hours today, until 6PM, in order to allow testing for performers whose tests have expired.

Porn Shuts Down Productions Over HIV Test

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

As revealed by The Independent, the porn industry has been asked to close productions indefinitely by the Free Speech Coalition as the results of a possible HIV positive test are awaited for confirmation.

This is far from the first shut-down, of course, and normally the porn industry is extremely pro-active when it comes to this sort of thing with pretty much everyone agreeing to the calls.

However, it’s the first since porn started coming under fire for being a public health hazard in various states, and it will be a serious test of the industry’s mettle, regardless of what the result of this test is.

Porn ‘Public Health’ Debate Spreads To New Zealand

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

The branding of porn as a ‘public health’ concern has been a hot and worrying topic across certain parts of the United States over the past few months – but the debate is spreading to areas far, far away too.

For over in New Zealand, politicians from both sides of the political spectrum have joined forces to start a debate on the subject, with over 22,000 people signing a petition calling for an inquiry into porn – and that’s quite a big number by New Zealand population standards.

What does concern me about this whole thing is that you can’t just blame the usual right-wing ignorance on this because there’s just as much coming from the left too. That’s why this is a subject which porn really does need to have a say on and fast.

Man Behind ‘Porn Tax’ Chased By Arrest Warrant

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Huh, how interesting.

It always strikes me as interesting how so many conservatives who seem patently anti-porn and, indeed, anti-sex work in general seem to have some sort of sordid and controversial past when it comes to sex.

Nobody has still managed to explain how Chris Sevier has reached this level of influence when it comes to lawmaking, especially so considering his chequered personal, legal and professional past. It’s all very strange indeed but I guess just about anything goes in the USA at the moment.

Well, the rumours have been swirling for some time now but it is, unfortunately, official – Skin Diamond has officially announced her retirement from porn at the age of 30.

It has been coming for quite some time with fans noting that she had not been active as a performer for a while, and with regular suggestions being dropped on her social media pages.

But now it is official she has said that she plans on taking her stage name and using it to launch a music career instead. Best of luck to you from everyone at FreeOnes, Skin, and thank you for ALL the amazing movies and shoots you left behind.

Why Not Try Porn Before A First Date?

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Hmm.

Now, if you are unfortunate enough to be even slightly like, so crippled with anxiety and general nerves that the prospect of even a first date with anyone would be enough to make you shake like Nicki Minaj‘s butt in a strong breeze, the above article might not be all that much interest or use.

But for the rest of you, it may well be. It’s not a brand new theory, of course, and closely resembles something that was first practiced by Ben Stiller in There’s Something About Mary.

So what I would say is that if you are planning on following this advice, for goodness sake check your ear before you go out. Your date may not be as clueless as Cameron Diaz was.

Harriet Sugarcookie Launches ‘SFW’ Website

This is a story that caught my eye today and is something that I think we may see more and more in the future.

Harriet Sugarcookie is the kind of model who could certainly have a very successful softcore glamour modelling career to go alongside her porn career. It probably wouldn’t work for a lot of porn stars.

But for those like her who have her similar sort of look, it’s a development they may want to keep a close eye on. Should be an interesting site – and hell, more Harriet is a good thing!

Jenna Jameson Denounces Trump Parody Report As ‘Fake News’

Sunday, March 26th, 2017

Honestly, the first paragraph of this article could be criticised for seeing AVN drop their neutrality to give former porn star Jenna Jameson – but only once you’ve finished laughing at it.

xHamster knew they were never going to get far with their offer but if it was their intention to annoy Jameson then they have done a fabulous job as she ran crying to alleged news outlet and e-turd recycling plant Breitbart News to deny she had taken a role.

So any small hopes you may have had about seeing her make a comeback are once again dashed. Sad!

Except not really.

‘Porn Addiction’ Measured In New Psychological Test

Saturday, March 18th, 2017

Yet more anti-porn bullshit to report to you courtesy of The Daily Mail, as they gleefully report on a new psychological test which claims that a new five minute test can measure if you have a problem with porn.

Some geniuses at a university in Hungary claim the test is able to differentiate between problematic and non-problematic porn usage.

It’s one of those Cosmopolitan-esque tests where if you score over a certain number of points then it means you win or something.

In this case, 76 points and over and you’re a porn addict. 75 points and under and you’re fine! It’s completely stupid, of course, but check it out below if you don’t want to give that rag one of your clicks:-

——————–

ARE YOU ADDICTED TO PORN? TAKE THE TEST

Answer the 17 questions below, rating them by how much you feel they apply to you from 1 to 7, where:1 = never, 2 = rarely, 3 = occasionally, 4 = sometimes, 5 = often, 6 = very often, 7 = all the time.

1. I felt that porn is an important part of my life.

2. I used porn to restore the tranquillity of my feelings.

3. I felt porn caused problems in my sexual life

4. I felt that I had to watch more and more porn for satisfaction.

5. I unsuccessfully tried to reduce the amount of porn I watch.

6. I became stressed when something prevented me from watching porn.

7. I thought about how good it would be to watch porn.

8. Watching porn got rid of my negative feelings.

9. Watching porn prevented me from bringing out the best in me.

10. I felt that I needed more and more porn in order to satisfy my needs.

11. When I vowed not to watch porn any more, I could only do it for a short period of time.

12. I became agitated when I was unable to watch porn.

13. I continually planned when to watch porn.

14. I released my tension by watching porn.

15. I gradually watched more ‘extreme’ porn, because the porn I watched before was less satisfying.

16. I resisted watching porn for only a little while before I relapsed.

17. I missed porn greatly when I didn’t watch it for a while.

Add the scores for all the questions together. A score of 76 or higher suggests problematic levels of pornography use.

Gym Users Furious After Hardcore Porn Revelation

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

In a classic example of people being hysterical for reasons they don’t even know, The S*n has reported that members of a gym in Gloucester in the UK have cancelled their memberships after it was revealed that a couple of hardcore porn films were shot there.

No, there wasn’t any rimming going on while people were pumping iron. These videos were shot after opening hours were finished and nobody was around.

So what the hell are these people worried about? They’re happy to use the the same equipment that people have sweated and farted all over, but if someone’s had their cock sucked on them, then that’s FAR worse!

Why do we have to share air with these people.
