Vintage Porn Star Parody Released

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

One might be justified in asking if the porn parody had officially jumped the shark when the porn industry starts parodying itself.

Because that initially appears to be the case with Not Traci Lords XXX: Superstars Reborn, a peculiar new title from Will Ryder that has just been released on VOD, and is set for a DVD release on October 4th.

Instead it appears to be tribute to a number of vintage porn stars that claims to be a biography of them, and most notably of Traci Lords. Erm, but I hope they trod carefully on ‘certain’ aspects of her career!

It’s all the more odd though when you consider that one of the subjects, Nina Hartley, is still an active performer!

Reddit User Uncovers Old Mac Porn Game

Tuesday, July 12th, 2016

macplaymate-game-nsfw-copy-1

I do love a bit of retro porn and I do love it when some porn that was thought to be lost is found again.

But it’s rare you get much news on that front when it comes to video games – however, one Reddit user uncovered exactly such a find recently when he bought an old Apple Mac.

The Next Web article will certainly be amusing to those of you who have the same sense of humour I had when reading about MacPlaymate when it states that the game had a panic button for those who needed to hide the game suddenly.

The more things change….

FreeOnes Recommends: The Classic Porn

Saturday, March 5th, 2016

This week’s FreeOnes Recommends feature trawls through the huge amounts of retro porn sites out there and comes up with one of our very favourites – The Classic Porn.

With content dating back to the 1960s, but concentrating a lot of its discoveries on the golden age of porn in the 1980s, this is a site that isn’t just awesome when it comes to the sheer back catalogue of content it has collected.

A concerted effort to find titles that were considered lost or deleted really does shine them in a good light. When you consider that 40 of the films of a legendary mainstream director like John Ford are considered lost, you could easily see how porn films would fall lost.

Nobody is digging around museums and private collections looking for porn like they are doing with mainstream cinema. Porn is relatively mistreated on that front so any site, like this, that looks to find that which was considered lost deserves a lot of credit.

But it’s also just a fantastic archive of retro smut, whether you have a passing interest or are genuinely interested in porn history, as I am. Hugely recommended – you can read my review here and check the site out itself here.

Rebecca Lord Releases New Autobiography

Sunday, February 7th, 2016

The legendary retired French porn star Rebecca Lord has released a new autobiography this weekend entitled To My Dear Civilians, With Love and it’s available to buy on Amazon now.

According to AVN, who spoke to the book’s co-author Brian Whitney, it aims to be a humorous look at the life of a porn star, and also attempt to show what a good life it can be for many who work in the industry.

With so much negativity and downbeat press surrounding porn at the moment, it’s certainly good to see one of its greatest ever performers shining a light on the good side of porn as well as forging an already successful directorial career. Should be well worth a read.

How about a Kindle release though, Rebecca?

Asia Carrera To Serve House Arrest Sentence

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

The former porn legend Asia Carrera has escaped a jail term but will serve a sentence under house arrest for a DUI charge from 2015.

Carrera has been excused a jail sentence as a result of caring for a special needs child, but it has to be said that the news reports of this story seem more interested in the fact that she’s a Pastafarian.

Usually mainstream media outlets fall over themselves to point out that the subjects of their articles are porn stars but apparently being a follower of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is a far more interesting thing to report on than a career in adult entertainment. Huh.

Hustler Uncover Lost John Holmes Movies

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

john-holmes

Hustler have announced that they have recently happened across two John Holmes movies that had previously been thought to be lost.

As featured on AVN, Larry Flynt has revealed that the titles are Balls In Action and The Doctor Is In and that they will be remastered before being made available on Hustler.com and also on DVD in early 2016.

Perhaps the most interesting aspect to this story is the revelation that Flynt regularly buys job lots of old adult films to see if there are any lost gems that could be brought back into the spotlight.

And I really respect that. As a huge film fan, both porn and mainstream, it saddens me how many movies end up lost over time and so seeing someone actively looking to rediscover lost titles is awesome, I think.

Robin Byrd To Release Song About Raccoon Attack

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

Yeah, now, you’ve taken a look at the title of this blog and thought, “Have I just read that right or has this guy finally completely lost the plot?”

While I wouldn’t completely discount the latter just yet, I can assure you that it is the former. OK, so the story is that former porn actress Robin Byrd was bitten by a rabid raccoon recently and it earned a certain amount of attention.

So, like you do, she has decided to release a pop song about the attack and its aftermath. Because that’s the first thing you do, isn’t it? Well, if you really want to, you can listen to it here.

Presumably she got a shot before she recorded it though.

Candida Royalle Dies Aged 64

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

Some sad news breaking through in the last 24 hours or so after it was announced that the legendary porn actress Candida Royalle had passed away at the age of 64 after a battle with ovarian cancer.

This report on NY Daily News site shows just a small sample of the many tweeted tributes that were made by many porn stars past and present to Candida, showing how highly respected and liked she was.

In the current climate, which has seen a notable rise in feminist porn and a stronger sexually positive attitude in society, it’s worth noting that Candida was a real pioneer in this field, with her Femme Productions company aiming to produce female orientated porn all the way back in 1984.

Her influence is significant and considerable. She will be sadly missed. All of us here at FreeOnes would like to pass on our condolences to her family and loved ones.

AVN Remembers Wes Craven ‘Golden Age’ Work

Sunday, September 6th, 2015

l_122943_bc1f4276

Film fans across the world have, of course, been saddened by the passing of film director Wes Craven. But this fascinating little article by AVN talks about a side of his work that is little seen.

I certainly was completely unaware that he directed several porn movies in the 1970s prior to making his breakthrough movie The Last House On The Left and that he apparently edited “tens” of others.

Indeed, Angela The Fireworks Woman is something of a ‘Golden Era’ porn classic, and I had no idea he was ‘Abe Snake’! The article does say that Craven worked under many pseudonyms so the actual scale of his porn editing work may never be known.

Even so, it’s an interesting footnote to the large numbers of articles being written about him this week.

Games Developer Seeks Crowdfunding For New Porn Game

Friday, July 24th, 2015

296451-Triple X

A games developer has turned to Indiegogo in an attempt to raise $1,000 for a new game that is based around creating and running your own porn studio.

At the time of writing, the project has received just over 70% of its required funds with 18 days left to run. The concept is awesome enough but even better when you read more about it.

The game starts in the 1970s, at the height of the post-Deep Throat porn boom. So not only is it a porn game, but it’s a retro porn game! Now, aside from Grand Theft Auto games, I have barely played a game released since about 2000.

Would I play this? Yes. Would I donate to this campaign? Yes. Have I got about £1.25 in my bank account and can’t afford to? YES.

Somebody lend me $5….

Orson Welles ‘Porn Scene’ Unearthed

Monday, June 8th, 2015

05-orson-wells.w529.h352

Certainly the last thing you expect to find on a Monday morning when you’re trawling the internet looking for stories about porn and the porn industry is a story about Orson Welles editing a lesbian porn scene.

But there it is in black and white! The legendary director, it has been confirmed, edited a lesbian shower scene starring porn royalty Georgina Spelvin for the porn movie 3am: The Time Of Sexuality whilst impatiently waiting for the film’s director to finish work on his movie The Other Side Of The Wind.

It’s a typically and artistically thoughtful scene and it has to be said that the Wellesian flair certainly adds a lot to a very hot scene. Not sure about the music, however, sound more like a horror film score and I would suggest Welles had no part in that!

You can watch the full movie on Cliphunter here.
