Thanks to poor educational standards, an uncommunicative family, and a fairly sheltered adolescence, being the newbie at Hot Movies started out…shall we say…awkward. Luckily, my obsession with social media came to my rescue: amongst my research for interesting sex and porn news, I stumbled across something that has quite literally changed my life. From being close-minded about discussing either topic and thoroughly inhibited, I have embraced sexual freedom and open expression of personal desires; the ideology of sex positivity has had a profound impact upon me.

Please do not take this as a conversion attempt. I simply think it is important to share the following information because sexual repression is a bitch.

The following are the significant concepts* as they are the antitheses of Western culture’s dominant philosophies:

  • Sexuality is a potentially positive force in life
  • Sexual expression is good and healthy
  • Acceptance of any and all sexual orientations
  • No moral or ethical distinctions for personal sexual preferences
  • Comprehensive and accurate sex education

*All fundamentally based on consent.

“Being sex positive is all about embracing that sexuality is a very important part of who you are, irrespective of your age and irrespective of the social construct. It means maintaining a healthy attitude towards sex — or lack thereof — and valuing it given your individual needs.” -Dr. Michael Krychman, sexual counselor and sexual-medicine gynecologist

I’ve come to understand this as a personally adaptable attitude, which translates to my takeaway as: whatever makes you feel good, you should be comfortable with and be able to discuss. Somewhat of a warning: there’s little information of the movement outside of its feminist sect and basic history. However, for those interested I recommend the following for an initial introduction: Sex Positive Movement and What Does Sex Positive Mean, combating the ideas of antisexualism/sex-negativity. (Yes, these include Wikipedia articles, but check out the References before dismissing them.)

Finally, I think it is crucial to assess this movement given the current cultural attitudes towards sex and porn, as well as their associated industries. My twitter has some infuriating illustrations of sexual shaming—like a guy that died from a sex toy because he was afraid to get it removed after it got stuck, or how women are labeled as hypersexual and criticized for watching porn.

The other night at NYU there was a debate on the ethics of porn. On the pro porn side of the talk was the famous adult film star, Ron Jeremy. On the anti porn side of the discussion was Craig Gross. While I’m sure you are all aware of who Ron Jeremy is; you may not be as aware of who Mr. Gross is. Craig Gross is a pastor for the website XXXChurch.com.

What exactly is XXXChurch.com? Well, it’s a site for porn addiction recovery. Now, I think it’s important that people are careful with pornography. Obviously it’s never good to become addicted to something to the point where it’s harming your everyday life. However, this site doesn’t talk about just being careful and moderate when using porn. They’d prefer that the porn industry shut down completely.

So now that we know the two parties involved, let’s go over some of the debate.

As is generally the argument against the adult industry, Craig Gross talked about how porn creates unrealistic expectations of sex for people. So Ron Jeremy responded with about as good a response as you could ask for in defense of the industry.

“These fantasies are not ever going to be reality. What you’re looking at on a screen is never going to happen, or should happen, in your sex life,” he told the audience. Jeremy argued that porn is just another form of escapism, like Star Trek conventions, and should be considered as just another form of entertainment.

 Ron says what I’ve been saying for months now. Porn is just another for of entertainment. If you go to the movies and see an action star jump out of a 10-story building, shoot a helicopter down, and then land on his feet, you don’t go out and try it with your buddies the next day. Well the same goes (or should go) for porn. Just because you see a video about gang bangs doesn’t mean every girl you sleep with is going to want to have an orgy with you and you’re friends.

But although the two men come from very different worlds, Ron actually discussed how they were alike.

“We’re actually very similar,” Jeremy opined. “I do it with a few thousand women, he’s done it with his wife a few thousand times. It’s the same thing.”

Although I disagree with the stance of XXXChurch.com, I think it’s important and a good move that Ron and other supporters of the adult industry respond like this. These people are certainly entitled to their opinions and don’t deserve any harsh reactions or to be yelled at. Using humor and logic is the best chance the adult industry has in defending itself. What’s important is for people to be careful and realistic and accept that some will enjoy pornography and others will not. As is the case with most things in life, moderation is key.

‘Who won?’ you might ask. The simple answer is Elegant Angel. Elegant Angel, The Miramax of porn (sorry for the backhanded compliment Miramax), stole the show with… a lot of awards. I would give you the specific amount, but it would take an eternity to sift through seemingly endless categories like Best Three-Way Sex Scene, Boy/Boy/Girl and Best Vignette Release (both won by, who else, Elegant Angel).

Here are some of the big winners:

Best Feature
Portrait of a Call Girl, Elegant Angel Productions
Portrait of a Call Girl

Best All-Sex/Vignette Series
The Bombshells, Elegant Angel Productions
The Bombshells

Best All-Girl Series
Women Seeking Women, Girlfriends Films
Women Seeking Women

Also, let’s not forget about the people who make porn what it is – the stars! Bobbi Starr took home Female Performer of the Year, Asa Akira took home an assload of awards (not literally… maybe literally) and Joanna Angel took home a bad case of the clap. Just kidding.

She already had the clap.

Just kidding.

Maybe.

SOPA-stop-online-piracy-act

An excerpt from the AVN article regarding this matter:

“‘Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif, San Jose) added amendments about pornography and referred to the CEO of Pink Visual (Alison Vivas) as someone she’d like to call in as an expert witness to help craft some of the SOPA regulations on pornography,” wrote Blue. “Pink Visual is known for being at the forefront of pornography and technology, with the first cloud storage for porn, the first iPad porn app, an API and more.”

No argument about Pink Visual’s role as an innovator, but as far as Lofgren mentioning Vivas as a possible expert witness, it never happened, and neither did she offer an amendment on pornography. That singular task was undertaken by Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo., pictured), whose amendment, had it not been voted down, would have exempted copyright-infringing porn sites from being targeted for takedown by the Attorney General.

The amendment language read, “CERTAIN ENFORCEMENT ACTIONS PROHIBITED IN THE CASE OF OBSCENE OR PORNOGRAPHIC WORKS—The Attorney General shall bring no action, and no public resources shall be expended under this section, for the purpose of protecting any intellectual property right pertaining to a work whose contents are pornographic or obscene in nature.'”

………………………..

Now, let’s put this into layman’s terms…

Representative Zoe Lofgren, Chair of the 34 Member California Democratic Congressional Delegation, and Representative Jared Polis, Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Colorado’s 2nd district, apparently believe that Adult Industry media should not be helped by SOPA if passed, because the majority of pirated materials online are pornographic. Representative Polis states that his amendment does not infringe on the rights of pornographers, but instead intends to make sure the Attorney General’s Office is not using tax payers’ money to focus on benefiting the Adult Industry.

The article above is slightly unclear on whether Rep. Lofgren opposed Rep. Polis’ amendment or not, but her live response shows a more solid opinion. She states, “I think not supporting this amendment is going to be kind of hard to explain back home…” Considering every legal pornographic company within the United States also pays taxes along with those business Rep. Polis calls “legitimate”, it becomes hard to understand who’s tax dollars are the subject of this conversation.

Regardless, congress voted down this amendment. SOPA, if passed without further legislature intended to single out the Adult Industry, should be used to combat the piracy of Adult Industry media online.

James Franco making porn documentary on Kink.com

Actor James Franco made a porn fool of himself last night on Conan, in a good way. The hot commodity talked about a misguided sex tape escapade in his youth, mentioned his high regard for the talent porn performers bring to the screen, and also said in passing that he is making a documentary on alternative sexuality producer and San Francisco Armory owner, Kink.com, whose founder, Peter Acworth, bought the historic building in 2006.

Screech… back up. What was that?

“I’m making a documentary about pornography,” he told O’Brien. “There’s this amazing facility in San Francisco. It’s at this old armory and they do everything in house, they build their props in house, so I’m making a documentary about that.”

Sweet.

As AVN (and a few others) have reported, Franco will soon be seen in a based-on-a-true-story movie titled Cherry co-penned by adult performer Lorelei Lee that was shooting up in S.F. in May, and we hypothesize that they may have spent a few days shooting scenes at the Kink Armory, which would explain, as IndieWire.com reported, “A tweet from Kink.com actress Rain Degrey from June 26 read: ‘Kink.com is all aflutter today because James Franco is here shooting his new movie. All these girls want to f*ck him! lol.’ However, the tweet was later deleted.”

Regarding his impression of porn performers, Franco told O’Brien, ““Those people in pornos, they’re great performers. They’re selling it to an audience.” He added, of the sex tape, “My girlfriend and I didn’t know that, so there was just this weird movement. That’s not sexy at all. That’s really, like, boring.” This is not the first time Franco has weighed in on porn star’s unique ‘marketing’ skills. In January, he again spoke about porn performer’s ability to “sell it.”

If he’s really making the Kink.com doc, it’s a safe bet it will not be boring.

AVN contacted Acworth about the documentary and heard back from him in late afternoon. “Kink is very excited about the prospect of working with James Franco,’ he said. “The details are still being ironed out, but we’re very much looking forward to it.”

So are we!

Adult Videos on Demand - MILF Magnet 6Lexington Steele enjoys the sexual company of women; a wide age range of women. In today’s release of the all-interracial MILF Magnet 6, Steele indulges in the affections of four, busty, so-called “older” women, some familiar and some new to the scene.

Starring an impressive cast of women who ooze experience and prove that older means bolder; Michelle McLaren, Shay Fox, Friday and Karen Fisher all appear with three-time AVN Male Performer of the Year and Mercenary Pictures owner Lexington Steele.

While McLaren and Friday have both had the Lexington Steele experience, Fisher and Fox are first-timers to working with the international award-winning actor/director in MILF Magnet 6.

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Michelle McLaren recently in Lex Steele XXX 14. The response to our first scene together demanded that I shoot her again. Friday made perfect sense because many have not seen her in awhile and this is a big breasted MILF series,” Steele said. “But the newcomers to my videos — Shay Fox and Karen Fisher — took to working with me extremely well. In fact, I can’t wait to shoot them again. I always look forward to the unadulterated enthusiasm and smoldering sensuality that women like these bring to a video.”

Steele credits the growth of the MILF genre in adult to female performers like the ladies showcased in MILF Magnet 6.

“For a very long time, the adult industry was obsessed with young girl and just out of high school types of titles,” Steele reflected. “Girls like Michelle, Karen, Shay, and Friday have increased competition for the same amount of available work. I’ve always loved women this age and shooting every new MILF Magnet is a pleasure most men will never understand.”

Casting.xxx First .xxx domainAttention porn fans and adult industry members, a new dawn has risen over our wide web world. The first .xxx domain has officially been registered, designed, and pushed live.

Given multiple .xxx domains under ICM Registry’s “founder” program, Casting.xxx is registered under a company named Really Useful. Although ICM had published about.xxx as a corporate url, Casting.xxx is the first porn site to utilize a highly debated .xxx domain name. It is very interesting how little can be found on the Really Useful parent company, based in the Turks and Caicos Islands. One would expect an internet company, granted “founder” status on one of the most controversial domain extensions in history, to have much more online representation. Yet, not even a Wikipedia page stands to identify them.

Two year old MetaCert.com has been named as the standard .xxx site classification service. This service will act as both a search engine link censor for users, and the proverbial .xxx ban hammer for domain owners.

“Rather than create yet another proprietary technology that ties customers into using our plug-ins, we decided to help instigate the formation of a new industry standard for classifying and labeling content on the Web. This new open standard is now called POWDER. Our platform and all of our products are based on this new open standard – enabling browsers and search engines to highlight certificates inside search results.” – MetaCert.com

The definition of proprietary software is a licensee being given the right to use software under certain conditions, but restricted from other uses, such as modification, further distribution, or reverse engineering. Since registering and maintaining an adult site on .xxx requires use of MetaCert.com‘s web classification services, there is little difference between proprietary software and their self-adopted description. This move also doubles as an intense link-building strategy, taking advantage of organic search result pages directly.

MetaCert.com‘s chairman, Salesforce.com chief scientist JP Rangaswami, intends to “make money in part by selling privacy policy certificates to site owners inside and outside the porn business for half the price of TRUSTe.” In other words, he intends to undercut the privacy certificate market by 50% to boost initial sales and remove another middleman.

Both the Free Speech Coalition (FSC) and Larry Flynt have made their opinions of .xxx well-known. The FSC has adopted “.XXX is Bullshit” as a campaign slogan, and Larry Flynt has reportedly written to ICM demanding protection of the Hustler trademark. Flynt’s battle could define how the near future of .xxx will play out. If granted automated protection by ICM, many trademarked adult industry companies may keep their hands clean of .xxx all together.

Kristina RoseWherever Kristina Rose goes, acclaim follows.
