Porn stars, as the old thinking goes, are people who either couldn’t cut it in the mainstream entertainment industry, or people who were at best marginal in society. Those of us in the industry know that this is bunk. The fact is that now, more than ever before, some of the best actors in porn are crossing over into mainstream entertainment.

In the bad old days, a stigma was placed on people who performed in adult entertainment. In the 21st Century, a world were people have apparently awakened to the fact that sex is a normal part of life, actors of all stripes are judged on the only thing that matters in show business, their talent. A recent article by a mainstream news organization, Policymic, shows how actors like Sasha Grey, Katie Morgan, and Ron Jeremy demonstrate that the American public has come to accept porn stars for their talent and charisma, and not to judge them for doing something that is a natural part of life.

Check out this profile on Sasha Grey from the article (and her profile on

“Marina Ann Hantzis started her adult film career soon after turning 18, circa 2006. After debuting with legendary director and performer Rocco Siffredi, Sasha made a name for herself in the industry and was soon featured by popular magazines and television programs, such as the Tyra Banks Show. Sasha then played herself during several seasons of the popular HBO show Entourage and is set to star in her second mainstream film The Girl From the Naked Eye.”

The fact is that Grey easily crossed over into the public eye without so much as a blink, and rightfully so. She has charm, great looks, and an ease that makes people comfortable. Those are things that the public expects out of their icons.

And we don’t even need to discuss Ron Jeremy in great detail. “The Hedgehog” has created a brand that is the envy of marketing executives everywhere. Jeremy proves, almost single-handedly for a period of time, that porn stars can capture the public’s imagination with a blend of self-deprecating charm and overwhelming personality.

As this crossover continues, it wouldn’t surprise us to see more stars crossover from the adult world to the mainstream. They have the skills. Now they also have a society that accepts them openly.

Pirates II Stagnetti’s Revenge

That doesn’t mean we here at don’t fully appreciate the magnitude of Pirates. Having won an unprecedented 11 AVN awards in 2006, and being the first adult video to be converted into a feature length R-rated mainstream film, the original Pirates will forever be remembered as one of the most successful and influential adult videos in history.

Pirates is a feature adult film which creates an immersive erotic swashbuckling adventure. 10 beautiful sex scenes highlight the story of Isabella (Carmen Luvana) as she attempts to rescue her husband Manuel (Kris Slater) from the grip of infamous pirate Victor Stagnetti (Tommy Gunn). Of course, Isabella could never hope to rescue her love alone. Only with the help of Captain Edward Reynolds (Evan Stone) and his sultry first-mate Jules (Jesse Jane) can she brave the perilous sexual atmosphere that is life at sea.

Pirates 2 Stagnettis Revenge Adult VideoPirates 2 Stagnetti’s Revenge looked to continue the amazing success of the first Pirates adult video, boasting an $8,000,000 budget and a cast fraught with elite stars. Pirates 2 did not bring back Carmen Luvana’s character (Isabella), but it did add almost double the amount of adult talent to the cast. Including porn stars such as Belladonna, Sasha Grey, and Jenna Haze, Pirates 2 details the continued adventures of Captain Edward Reynolds and Jules. The sexual swashbucklers are sent on yet another pirate hunting endeavor, encountering the new alliance between Chinese Pirate Empress Xifeng (Katsuni) and a magically reborn Victor Stagnetti (Tommy Gunn).

Both Pirates adult videos are immensely enjoyable, and we highly recommend you watch them. Although you cannot currently find them on the most loveable adult VOD site in existence,, we have provided links to each Pirates title below.

Watch Pirates II Stagnetti’s Revenge

Since Sasha Grey has put a foot hold into her role on Entourage, it seems her plans to leave porn for more serious acting opportunities are solidified. In the promotional video above for Sasha’s new book, she seems fairly confident in both commenting herself and letting others allude to her future without the Adult Industry.

Her new monograph, “NEU SEX“, is a collection of photos Sasha has kept for her own personal reflection during her years as a top ranked porn starlet. Shot entirely by her fiance’, Ian, the book highlights all facets of a punky young porn star’s trip down the rabbit hole of proud sexuality. Everything from beautiful unreleased photos of Sasha Grey modeling, to funny candid shots taken during down time on set. Couple these priceless lifestyle images with Sasha’s deep inner monologue and dry whit, and you have one hell of a conversation piece to sit on your coffee table.

The book has seen some poor critiques from people who believe transcending the gap between adult content and main stream media is a futile goal, but is great for someone who has also struggled with a strong sexual personality. Sasha Grey does not tip-toe around taboo subjects, leaving messages vague and misrepresented. She is very open with her personal thoughts and feelings, and has a way with humor that can change the way some people view the dynamic between the adult industry and the rest of the world.

Entourage - Sasha Grey and Vinny Chase

The newest episode of the HBO hit series, Entourage, brings the Hollywood golden boy down to a level we wished was never possible.

Although Jeremy Piven is one of my all time favorite actors, and Ari Gold had major events occur last evening, I have decided to keep this article focused on Vince Chase and Sasha Grey. Whom maybe I should call the “hard-ass gone hypocrite” and “free spirited fuck princess?”

If there has ever been one single point of advice which has never let me down, it would be to “fall for a person for who they are…not who you wish they could be.” What drove me crazy about this episode was it’s unfortunate realistic point of view on dating in the adult entertainment world. Why is it that people cannot understand pornography is a career. It is a choice. Minus stories such as Linda Lovelace’s horrifying experience, a much greater percentage of actors and actresses do actually CHOOSE to pursue this field. With that in mind, would it have been acceptable for Sasha to offer Vince a porn role to keep him out of “Airwalkers”?

Spoiler Alert: Please Do Not Read Further if You Have Not Seen “Entourage: Porn Scenes From an Italian Restraunt.”

Sasha Grey was written into the dinner scene with very little acting involved. Vince decides he is not keen on her involvement with an upcoming 5 man gang bang film. So he pulls what could be argued as an unnecessary string to get her a part in “Airwalker”, and give her a reason to quit the porn film. Sasha of course declines, and Vince desperately reaches out with the “L” word as a second attempt. Reality then falls like a boulder from the sky when Sasha Grey retorts with, “Sounds more like you’re trying to control me.”

Let’s forget for a second that the rest of their scene took place having passionate sex in the bathroom and apparently the entire dinner could have been cocaine induced. There is something very real about a sexually free-willed personality attracting some of the most controlling people in the world. Why is this?

Is it a form of jealousy created by a lack of one’s own sexual freedom?

Do people truly believe that repression is some sort of “perfect” path?

Why is it that the world thinks people in the Adult Entertainment Industry are always looking to be saved from some horrible fate they can’t control?

—Comment With Your Thoughts!—

Mucho props also go out to Kevin Connolly (a.k.a Eric Murphy) for directing this episode. Entourage may be meeting it’s end next season, but Mark Wahlberg IS releasing another show based on the porn business. Maybe we’ll keep just a little of the Entourage nostalgia if the two decide to work together? Cross your fingers.

Entourage Greets Sasha Grey

Sasha Grey Porn Star on EntourageLast night’s episode of the hit HBO series Entourage introduced none other than our favorite teddy-bear humping porn star, Sasha Grey. Sasha is playing herself and seeing the golden boy, Vince Chase.

Watching this episode, I spent a lot of time wishing I did not know Sasha for her porn persona originally. Something about seeing her as the innocent half of an encounter creates a glitch in my porn mind. Not to mention the fact that her character was introduced in the most abrupt fashion possible. Most women in the Entourage series come and go like the wind, so seemless character introduction is pointless. Grey‘s character is supposedly a recurrent girlfriend of Vince’s, and that alone makes her brainless entrance a poor writing decision in my mind.

The way other characters were written in around her entrance was rather intelligent. Sasha was portrayed as somewhat of an exhibitionist, but altogether sweet and innocent. Her interactions with Vince are honest and playful in both private and public settings. The rest of the cast on the other hand, seemed to cleverly divert the preconception of Sasha‘s dirty porn career by getting into awkward sexual situations. Ari Gold and his wife enjoyed a comical “angry sex” disagreement where Mrs. Gold refused to sleep with Ari while he was disgruntled over work. This included an extremely soft-core scene in which the audience witnesses Ari having sex with his wife. Eric and Sloan also get into the act by having a discussion about anal sex. Sloan becomes worried about Eric’s fascination, and decides to make sure she is the one he experiences it with. This comedic backdoor entry was also shown on screen in an extreme soft-core fashion.

The use of sex impressed me. I’m not entirely sure how Entourage‘s mainstream audience felt about Sasha Grey before watching the episode, but I believe the writers succeeded in carving her a faux innocence amongst the main cast for the time being. If Sasha’s later place in the Entourage story relies on her being seen as innocent and ultimately coy, I may end up eating my words concerning her entrance. We can only hope and watch.

Montana Fishburne Releasing Sex Tape

1) Laurence Fishburne’s daughter, Montana Fishburne, to make Vivid hardcore title.

* Who knew Laurence Fishburne had a 19 year old daughter, let alone that her name is Montana Fishburne? I know Laurence still likes wearing one earring, but since when does he approve of her first step in entertainment being naked and fucked on camera?

As an adult professional, I would bet on this being a publicity stunt to start her career. Unless Montana and Morpheus have had a falling out, I can’t imagine Laurence Fishburne‘s PR representatives wanting his name being synonymous with hardcore porn.

A Film By Mark Pellington

2) Sasha Grey in negotiations to join cast of “I Melt With You” starring Thomas Jane, Rob Lowe, and Jeremy Piven.

* I have to preface this statement by saying that I am a big fan of Sasha Grey. That being said, is it really news that she is going mainstream anymore? Between The Girlfriend Experience and now co-starring in a long run of episodes on Entourage, i’m pretty sure the public knows Sasha is an adult actress with some decent acting talent. This will peak my interest again when I see Sasha Grey‘s name appear on the next Scorsese film poster. I love her on camera, but she still has a long way to go before making a truly successful cross-over into mainstream.

* New York Magazine just published this story, and I had to laugh. I spend 8 hours a day behind a desk and I wrote THIS almost a month ago. Of course people are using new technology for pornography sales. It has been the way consumer technology has been broken in since Al Gore created the internet. A feature film is about to release focusing on it for Pete’s sake.

The world needs a wake-up call if they think Steve Jobs is really anti-porn. Steve Jobs loves porn like dogs love smelling each others’ rears. His left leg might even shake at the mention of the Adult Industry, or maybe that’s just because his wallet has gotten uncomfortably big. Without porn, the internet would be a library today. Go to your local library sometime and count how many people are there. Without the internet, the iPhone would be a Palm Pilot. Palm Pilots would be VHS tapes, and smart phones would be DVDs…you pick.

Amy Fisher Signs contract with Dreamzone Entertainment

4) Amy Fisher signs contract with Dreamzone Entertainment to make 4 hardcore titles.

* Let’s take a step into the DeLorean and go back in time a bit, shall we? Remember Joey Buttafuoco‘s wife being shot in the face by his underage mistress? Amy Fisher was that mistress, and the 2007 sex tape she released, starring her and her husband, sold over 200,000 copies.

This is real porn news! Amy is very excited to be shooting these films saying, “Our society loves sex. It feels so good and we should enjoy it. Sex is beautiful, powerful, and simply put, no one has the right to tell me what I can or can not do with my own private parts. This time, I get to make the choices on what kind of movies I want to make, and I am excited to work with Dreamzone to make my dreams a reality.” Although 35 is much more than a stone’s throw away from her underage antics, Amy has kept her body in top shape. If the 2007 sex tape is any sign of the porn watching public’s acceptance of her, the first film, at the very least, should be a success.

One of our favorite Adult stars and budding cross-over talents, Sasha Grey, will be appearing on the smash hit HBO series Entourage August 1st.

Sasha made her first cross-over move last year in Steven Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience. A drama set in the days leading up to the 2008 Presidential election, and centered on a high-end Manhattan call girl meeting the challenges of her boyfriend, her clients, and her work.

In the Entourage story arc, Sasha Grey will be playing herself. The golden boy himself, Vincent Chase, picks up Sasha at a bar and reportedly is not a fan of her chosen profession. Vince is said to try keeping her from shooting Adult content, and even brings her to a meeting with the legendary Stan Lee in a later episode. Sasha is rumored to be a part of the Entourage story line into the next, and final, season of the show.

Entourage creator Doug Ellin comments on Sasha Grey‘s addition to the cast, “I think Sasha’s going to have a very successful transition. Sasha’s the biggest porn star in the world right now. I wouldn’t have done this storyline if Sasha passed. Luckily she was okay with doing it.” – AVN

As a fan of the HBO blockbuster series, this makes for an interesting twist at this point in the show for me. Vincent Chase has gone from the boyish hippie star child to a much more wild and edgy character since performing his own car stunt against Ari Gold’s wishes. As a reborn thrill seeker, Vince’s antics with Sasha Grey have a lot of potential. I’m looking forward to seeing Sasha seduce Aquaman and make another positive female influence on Turtle, Drama, and Eric. banner in Germany

(Canoga Park, CA.) Smash Pictures continued their winning ways making a big splash and sealing a number of international deals in Berlin, Germany at the just completed Venus Trade Fair which is the biggest adult industry expo outside the United States.

Smash Pictures was represented by company owner Danny Quinn along with the vice president of sales Stuart Wall and enjoyed a magnificent presence with a giant 50 foot banner they shared with Hot Movies containing the image of Sasha Grey hanging off the front entrance to the Messe Berlin in what was a mission to expand the Smash brand on an international basis.

Smash Pictures was also emblazoned on every Estrel Hotel room key along with Hot Movies where attendees were staying helping to ensure that everybody had a smashingly hot time.

“It was great having a big presence in Berlin and connecting with the buyers and creating new business partnerships,” stated Wall as he arrived back in his Canoga Park, California offices. “It’s one thing to email people but getting the chance to have a drink or dinner with folks that you’re doing business with puts a human touch on things and I think raises the chances of maintaining a successful operation.”

Smash Pictures niche line-up of appealing adult movies including top-selling series such as Secretary’s Day 3, Naughty Nanny and Registered Nurse fits nicely both within American and in numerous foreign markets and displaying a big effort in Berlin keeps an international spotlight on the vibrant company.

Smash Pictures closed new deals in Scandinavia, Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Italy, Germany and more helping to ensure that porn-lovers across the world will enjoy the excellent quality that Smash Pictures has to offer.

“We would like to thank all our European clients and new customers that we had the pleasure of meeting. We look forward to doing business together in the future,” Wall concluded.

Smash Pictures will release Whale Tail #5 Thursday, October, 29th.

(Canoga Park, CA) Hustler Video releases another epic anal flick with their newest title, Puckered Up, the first anal-themed game show! Featuring one of porn’s hottest commodities, Sasha Grey, this movie will blow you away!

Directed by the late Richard de Montfort, Puckered Up is filled with the eccentricity and vibrancy that de Montfort fans have come to know and love.

“I asked Richard to give me a hardcore anal movie,” says Creative Director Drew Rosenfeld. “He came up with this wacky game show idea which ended up being really fun and filled with superhot anal fucking. It’s definitely not like anything you’ve ever seen.”

Though the thought of an anal game show may sound campy with its wild graphics, studio audience and deep-throated announcer, it’s a prime example of how de Montfort wanted his audience to see sex as fun and exciting.

In the opening scene, Amber Rayne faces off against Maxi in the ultimate anal challenge: Which lovely lady can get the biggest item up her sweet, hungry ass? For each ATM they get a bonus point, as well as points for successfully plunging it in all the way! When the buzzer sounds, they both grab at the box of toys like their lives depended on it. With lube flying and toys being thrown around, each anal whore starts shoving. Amber Rayne shows her moxie as she grabs a gigantic rubber arm and proceeds to give it the ol’ heave-ho! Who will win this round? You’ll have to see for yourself!

Puckered Up stars a bevy of anal-loving vixens, including Sasha Grey, Amber Rayne, Missy Stone, Daisy Strong, Maxi, Michelle Avanti and Trinity Post, and boasts some big man meat that includes Jay Lassiter, Shorty Mac, Chris Charming, Steven Steelberg and Nathan Threat.

I’m not really big on writing porn reviews, even though I’ve been thinking about doing weekly reviews here. anyway, I came across these pictures from Kimberly Kane‘s movie Live In My Secrets and I think I might actually watch it now. It’ll help me kill an hour or so at work and there’s nothing better than getting really grossed out thinking Kimberly Kane is licking a shit ton of blood out of Sasha Grey‘s cooch (it’s actually strawberry syrup).
