Hairy Lesbian Casting Couch

Hairy Lesbian Casting CouchSince 2008, director/performer Nikki Silver has been celebrating the female body in its natural state, which is to say, hairy. Her studio Naughty Natural showcases performers who eschew the grooming that dominates not only porn, but the lives of many American women. Nikki and her costars avoid shaving and waxing not only their vulvas, but also their legs, armpits, and anywhere else that hair grows on their bodies. While many studios that produce hirsute content fetishize these bodies, Nikki simply presents them as beautiful and sexy.

With Hairy Lesbian Casting Couch, Nikki tackles the casting couch genre of amateur porn and gives it a feminist spin. Not only that, she dominates and casts one of the hairiest girls in porn, the adorable and pixie-like Kisa Fae. Nikki was generous enough to write a short essay about this flick, giving us insight into its conception and her relationship with Kisa.

I have been a model in the hairy niche for over 10 years. I’ve become very familiar with this genre. Of course while there are many creative people both in front of and behind the camera, the larger hairy sites dictate a strict regime of what is acceptable. Very girl next door, nothing too elaborate in terms of storyline or dynamics and generally an emphasis on a young or youngish girl exploring her sexuality.

As I’ve gotten older myself this type of presentation makes less and less sense for me. I’ve been sexually active for over 15 years and definitely had more variety of sex with more variety of people and genders than most people in their 50’s! While my taste spans a variety of acts, dynamics and genders, I’ve done it all; the experimental phase is over.

Hairy Lesbian Casting Couch

I really love how some sites really hone in on a certain dynamic and then make that larger than life to excite the viewer. It’s fun, it’s interesting, it’s role playing and something I certainly do in my personal life. I’ve felt much more dominant myself lately and have been doing things on my site deemed more mature in terms of the way I’m dressing and presenting myself.

In my DVD, Hairy Casting Couch, the model Kisa Fae and I talked and came up with a scenario that was super hot to both of us. She was 19 at the time of filming and this really was her first porn shoot ever. She is a lifestyle kinkster and into age play as well as consensual non-consent. I am into age play as a mommy/top and love getting to consensually push people’s boundaries.

I haven’t seen many casting couch scenes where the producer is female and I’ve not seen any others where both models are hairy and as hairy as we both are. As a porn producer within a patriarchal society/world it is very important to me to push the idea of female power within female sexuality. I would not be comfortable only presenting female submissiveness, but I think presenting that submissiveness in response to the power of another woman is, well, powerful! 

We also worked a lot of hair fetish stuff into it and made it a body-positive thing where Kisa says she was made fun of in school for her body hair and I’m telling her that’s silly and that she’s beautiful as is. At the same time as I’m pushing her boundaries physical interaction/sexuality wise, I am also pushing her towards greater self-love. 

The stuff that great, healthy D/s (dom/sub) dreams are made of!

I can’t describe how fun it is to get to act out my own fantasies as well. I really do enjoy pushing and teasing and tormenting and am thrilled to find models excited to be on the other end of that. Through spending time with and talking in depth with my models about what they are into, I am able to get a complex and nuanced perspective on their sexuality. 

I hope to continue to create scenes which express the thing, or one of the things both models are most turned on by doing, and in turn present a more authentic and stimulating film for the viewer.

Judy Hologram’s Favorite Artsy Fartsy Anal Scenes

When I graduated from art school, no one had even looked at my butthole in years, nor did I ever think that I’d wind up watching porn for a living. Yet here I am now, talking butt stuff and gapes with the best of them. It’s well known that there’s tons of crappy, basic trash movies in the porn world, so it’s always a treat when a fuck flick tickles my right brain. This is especially true when anal is involved; anal tends to get a bad rap with civilians for being what only the grossest of bros could ever want to do. Some scenes prove that anal fucking can be pretty, valuable, erotic, and downright artistically presented. Here’s my favorite artsy fartsy anal scenes!

The Art of Anal Sex 2 – Zoey Monroe, Karla Kush, and Manuel Ferrara

The Art of Anal Sex Karla Kush Manuel Ferrara

If you’ve got the word “art” in your title there’d better be some kinda woo woo going on in there. All-anal studio Tushy is known for their naturally lit butt fucking scenes, with hot dudes, gorgeous lingerie, and participants who get their fantasies fulfilled instead of crying out in pain. Here we have a kind of typical corny porno set-up; Karla and Zoey are bickering step-sisters, and Karla demands that Zoey doesn’t fuck in the house while their parents are away.

The Art Of Anal Sex 2 Karla Kush Zoey Monroe Manuel Ferrara

But when Karla tries to blackmail Zoey with footage of her blowing Manuel, she finds out that she’s not such a prude after all. Manuel takes control and seduces Karla pretty quick, ending a mercifully short plot setup and delivering us straight into the anal fuckery. The dirty talk from Zoey and Manuel here is glorious as they turn Karla into a butt slut, and the whole thing is just beautifully filmed.

Girl/Boy 2 – Dana Vespoli and Markus Dupree

Dana Vespoli Markus Dupree Girl/Boy 2 anal

If you’ve ever read this blog in your life, you’ve probably caught onto the fact that we’re all obsessed with performer/director Dana Vespoli. This summer she brought us Girl/Boy 2, one of my favorite movies of the year, which opened with an analtastic tribute to the late, great David Bowie. Dana and Markus don Aladdin Sane/Ziggy Stardust inspired make-up and genderbending suits and dresses in a minimalist set, and then Markus fucks Dana’s ass.

Dana Vespoli Markus Dupree Girl/Boy 2

I think Andi’s review of the scene said it best: “At times Dana is submissive and pleads with Markus, and at other times she is definitely in charge. Just like the Starman, Dana and Markus create a scene in which they ask the audience what it means to be a boy or a girl. Is it how we like to have sex, or is it the clothes we wear?”

Art kid who will jerk it to this: studies the work of Carolee Schneemann and has a great vinyl collection.

Abella – Abella Danger and Manuel Ferrara

Abella Danger Manuel Ferrara Hard X

Mason is arguably the greatest living gonzo director. Her intense interviews humanize her porn star subjects while also celebrating their enviable bodies and seemingly super-human sexual prowess. The second scene of this summer’s star showcase Abella opens with an interview with its wunderkind star Abella Danger as she candidly discusses how much she loves her job, but also how she’s had difficulty finding true romantic intimacy outside of work.

Abella Danger and Manuel Ferrara Hard X

Her scene with Manuel takes place in an old, empty warehouse loft lit by a single skylight, with ass slaps and moans and gasps echoing off the bare brick walls. Their chemistry is spectacular; they go at each other at a frenetic, hungry pace, Manuel murmuring commands while Abella begs for him to fuck her. They hold each other tight and hardly ever break eye contact. It’s incredibly intimate, especially for a super hardcore gonzo anal scene, and the way that they hold each other at the end is gorgeous and sweet.

Art kid who will jerk it to this: just wants a life partner to share their converted factory loft with.

The Submission of Emma Marx – Penny Pax and Richie Calhoun

The Submission Of Emma Marx - Penny Pax and Richie Calhoun

The sudden popularity of the problematic 50 Shades Of Grey series brought a sudden rush of people who were suddenly interested in BDSM relationships without any idea of how that should safely be implemented. There were many XXX movies that tried to capitalize on it, but none did it more successfully than The Submission Of Emma Marx from director Jacky St. James. The third scene is a montage of Emma’s training under Mr. Frederick, beginning with him presenting her with an anal training kit and assuring her that they will never do anything that she doesn’t consent to.

The Submission Of Emma Marx - Penny Pax and Richie Calhoun

It’s everything that 50 Shades should have been, and its depiction on screen is sublime. After training her ass to take a cock over a period of weeks, Emma begs for Mr. Frederick’s cock while he teases her in his office, warming her up until he very slowly enters her from behind. Penny, Richie, and Jacky all put in some of their best work here, resulting in one of the most romantic, erotic anal scenes in porno history.

Box Cover Copycats in Porn

When I started art school, I figured I’d probably major in graphic design. Instead, I started dating a graphic design major, and bore witness to how the long hours spent at the computer and screaming at his printer as if it were a sentient being slowly drove him to the edge of insanity. So, I lived with him for three years while I plucked my way towards a degree in painting and drawing. While I’m pretty worthless at actually designing anything myself, I still have a bit of an eye for it.

What I’ve noticed lately is that with the success of certain porn studios come the inevitable copycats. Since we all judge a porno book by its porno cover, the first step to stealing your competitors’ thunder is to copy the photography and design of their box covers. We’re all for a bit of healthy competition here at HMFH HQ, so I think it’s time to take a look at some of porn’s latest box cover copycats.

Everyone Loves Blacked

Black and White 2 Blacked.com box cover

Interracial studio Blacked.com is one of porn’s youngest darlings, and their boxcovers are certainly striking yet minimal. Director Greg Lansky pairs hung, stark naked black stars like Isiah Maxwell and Rob Piper with white girls against a naturally lit white backdrop. The women sidle up to their co-stars, while the men wrap a protective arm around their waists, staring down at them romantically, longingly. It’s a huge difference from the interracial porn of yesteryear, which was marketed in such a way as to make the black stars the villains coming for your white daughters. By departing from its racist predecessors, Blacked became hugely successful in a short amount of time, and the industry took notice.

Interracial Surrender 1 Team Skeet box cover

A lot of notice. Team Skeet was definitely taking a few moves from the Blacked playbook when they started their Interracial Surrender series. I think they may have upped the ante a little bit when they cunningly posed Elektra Rose‘s forearm parallel with Jovan Jordan‘s dick.

Interracial Booty Dark X AJ Applegate box cover

I ain’t even mad about this one. DARK X popped up in the last year as Mason‘s answer to Blacked. I don’t know how much actual copycatting went on here, since DARK X’s sister studio HARD X has been running the minimal box cover game for a few years now.

Shade X Smash Pictures Katerina Kay box cover

Oh, come on now. Look, I get it. It’s tough at there in porno-world these days, and you gotta hustle and try to make money however you can. But do you really gotta nab another studio’s brand identity to the point that you’re going to be confusing some folks? Bad form!

Primary Culprit: Smash Pictures

Cuddles box cover Smash Pictures Ariana Marie

Let it be clear, I bear no ill will towards Smash Pictures. They’re a rad studio, and I like a lot of their pornos (special shout out to American Hustle XXX!) However, it seems like they’ve been struggling to find an identity the past year or two, to the point that many of their box covers look like they came from someone else.

The Bombshells 6 box cover Elegant Angel Aidra Fox

The graphic design MO of Elegant Angel is typically hot naked lady + white background + the title flipped 90 degrees to the right or left. Do we notice some similarities here?

Now Daddy box cover Smash Pictures Abella Danger

Here we have a daddy themed flick starring Abella Danger.

It's A Daddy Thing 6 box cover Elegant Angel Abella Danger

And here’s another one from Elegant Angel! It’s not the most egregious case of copycatting, but the pose, white background, theme, and childish font choices are a bit eyebrow raising.

I'm Engaged To My Father box cover Riley Reid

When I first saw this boxcover from Smash Pictures, I was totally shocked that it wasn’t from Digital Sin’s Tabu Tales line.

Sex Is All Relatives box cover Digital Sin Cassidy Klein

Look at that silvery, serif font that looks like it came from a moderately sexy mystery/thriller penned by a female novelist in the mid-aughts. The washed out lighting, grope-y pose, and gray background just seals the deal for me.

Romance X box cover Smash Pictures

Smash Pictures, please stop trying to make us think that you’re Hard X or Erotica X.

Swingers Getaway box cover Erotica X Leah Gotti

You will never be Erotica X. You didn’t even try to making your box cover romantic, you just slapped an X on there after the word “Romance’ and hoped for the best. If you had just tried for “Romance XXX” instead I wouldn’t even have thought twice.

So, I get it. When something that someone else is doing works, you’re gonna get in on it. Porno has a long history of studios following trends set by others, where even independently successful studios will eventually fall in line with the flavor of the week. It’s a rat race out there, everyone’s just trying to get their piece of the porno pie.

Until next time, go watch something from Smash Pictures and let them know that you like them just the way they are.

Bisexual Pick Ups 2 Review

Bisexual Pick Ups 2 boxcoverWhen I first started this job over two years ago, the first month was spent with some serious reservations about the content I was watching. Most of it was fine, but a lot of what came across my desk had a lot of sex that just seemed downright questionable to me. Between the anal roses, crying Japanese girls, outright racism, transphobia, and all the misogyny that sometimes comes with porn, I often felt that there wasn’t really any smut being made that I could get behind.

And then Fucking Hostile appeared on my desk, like a god damn glowing revelation; rough anal galore, with plenty of sloppy blow jobs, light bondage, filthy dirty talk, and massive cumshots, but done so fucking well. I excitedly told a co-worker that every scene was interracial, but no one had bothered to make a big stinking deal of it. To top it all off, a woman was behind the camera, a woman who teased her subjects and commanded them with a voice of knowing authority.

Aiden Starr gave me everything that I’d been dying to see in one movie.

Aiden recently released Bisexual Pick Ups 2, with an all star cast of performers from the kink and queer scenes. Each scene features boy-on-girl anal (no boy-on-boy) with tons of yummy, slurpy blow jobs for everyone all around. Aiden told me, “This series is really fun to shoot because of all the possible combinations of the performers! Lots of spontaneous double penetrations happen and everyone’s mouth is always full!”

Scene 1 – Ella Nova, Damien Thorne, Wolf Hudson

Ella Nova Wolf Hudson Damien Thorne Bisexual Pick Ups 2

Kink.com staple Ella Nova looks perfectly angelic as she teases the camera in lacy blue lingerie, while Aiden, ever the Domme, commands her to “Roll around on the bed like a horny kitty” from behind the camera. The boys Damien and Wolf come in and hungrily kiss all over her body, leading up to a whirlwind of pussy eating, cock sucking, ball licking, ass fucking, dirty talking glory. While getting her pussy fucked, Ella commands Wolf to, “Make my pussy jealous,” resulting in some of the best spontaneous DP I’ve ever seen. Normally in DP scenes, the girl remains still while the guys work on her, but not here! Ella gleefully rides both their cocks, and it’s fucking awesome.

Ella Nova Wolf Hudson Damien Thorne Bisexual Pick Ups 2

I have to mention that Ella is a bit farty here, and I didn’t mind one bit. It wasn’t fetishized or ridiculed; rather, it was just presented as something that can and does happen during sex, especially when asses are involved.

Scene 2 – Nikki Darling, Wolf Hudson, Jasper Stone

Nikki Darling Wolf Hudson Jasper Stone Bisexual Pick Ups 2

Pretty, lithe Nikki Darling (who was the cover girl for Fucking Hostile, I might add!) writhes on the couch for Aiden’s camera. Wolf Hudson returns with Jasper Stone and Nikki gives them a double blow job, and I can’t help but feel relief that no one is worrying about having their dicks touch. It’s quite the opposite, in fact, as the boys take turns dropping to their knees to help Nikki suck each other off. There’s plenty of ass slapping and lots of focus on the boys blowing each other.

Nikki Darling Wolf Hudson Jasper Stone Bisexual Pick Ups 2

Anal comes towards the end of this scene, which means we get an extended period of double vaginal penetration featuring one of the most novel DVP positions I’ve ever seen. The boys moan and growl as their cocks press and slide against each other inside of Nikki’s pussy; it’s so refreshing for a movie to finally acknowledge that rubbing your cock against another dude’s cock during DAP and DVP probably feels really fucking good.

Scene 3 – Denali Winter, Jasper Stone, and Damien Thorne

Denali Winter Damien Thorne Jasper Stone Bisexual Pick Ups 2

This was the scene that I was initially the least interested in, if only because I’m not familiar with Jasper and Damien and didn’t feel very invested in this. However, scene 3 quickly became one of my highlights of Bisexual Pick Ups 2. Denali Winter is deliciously thick and simply glows under Aiden’s camera. It’s an easy, quiet, sometimes gentle scene, with Denali mostly just laying back and enjoying Jasper and Damien.

Denali Winter Damien Thorne Jasper Stone Bisexual Pick Ups 2

This scene has way more pussy eating than the others, which I always love to see, and Denali even gives instructions to Jasper on how to work their clit.  Of note is when Damien eats Denali’s pussy while Jasper fucks Denali’s ass and kisses them. It’s a surprisingly un-athletic, naturalistic scene from Aiden that I could definitely see myself watching again in the future.

Scene 4 – Daisy Ducati, Ruckus, and Connor Maguire

Daisy Ducati Ruckus Connor Maguire Bisexual Pick Ups 2

And this is the scene that I was initially looking forward to the most! I have a big ol’ crush on Ruckus, adore Daisy, and am always game for a hunky, hairy ginger like Connor. After the tease, Daisy attacks Ruckus and Connor’s cocks with sloppy, slurpy, deepthroaty blowjobs until she leans back and presents her pussy, insisting that it’s her turn now. Connor seems to have a spot of trouble staying hard (whatever, it happens) and disappears off camera, but that’s ok because it results in some mutual masturbation between Daisy and Ruckus and I kind of love watching mutual masturbation so it’s all good.

Daisy Ducati Ruckus Connor Maguire Bisexual Pick Ups 2

Connor quickly returns to start fucking Daisy, who is delightfully bossy and spouts some totally filthy dirty talk throughout the scene. The dudes take turns fucking Daisy’s ass and pussy, and Ruckus seems to be a stronger presence than Connor. In all, it’s a fun, filthy, armpit sniffing, butt fucking, aggressive joyride of a scene.

There’s a line in my notes where I mused that Bisexual Pick Ups 2 feels like the bi threesomes are played out as a fantasy fulfillment scenario for the subset of women who love watching gay porn. I asked Aiden who her intended audience was, and she responded, “This movie is for everyone!!” I can get behind that; it’s a really well done, thoughtful bi movie, and let’s be honest; who doesn’t love watching hot people get off, no matter their gender?

Sinn Sage’s First Boy-Girl Scene

Mother's Indiscretions 4 Boxcover Sinn Sage Jodi West Drake Man-o-WarSorry, lesbians! I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Sinn Sage no longer belongs to you. Indeed, after 14 years of crushing pussy, Sinn has finally touched an on-camera dick.

Sinn’s first Girl/Boy scene appears in Mother’s Indiscretions 4 from Forbidden Fruits Films, and costars Jodi West (who also directs) and Sinn’s real life partner (husband? I don’t know) Drake Man-O-War.

Jodi plays Sinn’s step-mother, who is outraged to know that Sinn and Drake are separating after having marital issues. She’s pretty funny, going off about how she refuses to let Sinn move back home and give up her own dream vacation to Fiji. After a few minutes of prying, Sinn admits that Drake is unsatisfied in the bedroom because Sinn won’t suck his dick. She feels self conscious because she’s inexperienced with slobbin’ the knob, and doesn’t think she can live up to the way porn stars do it.

Jodi insists that Sinn brings Drake into the bedroom so that she can save their marriage. No one should be surprised that this results in a threesome, with Jodi offering herself up as Drake and Sinn’s sexual mentor. She demands that Sinn show her how she suck’s Drake’s dick, and then proceeds to yell that Sinn needs a better dick sucking attitude. While Sinn starts getting turned on by the dick sucking, Jodi jumps in the action and shows Sinn how it’s properly done.

One small quibble: I don’t agree with Jodi’s assessment that you can’t kiss a cock. You kiss that cock, ladies!! Give it a cute little peck and whisper sweet nothings to it! Leave some lipstick on it, mark it as yours!

Mother's Indiscretions 4 Threesome Sinn Sage Jodi West Drake

It turns out that Drake also hasn’t been holding up his end of the oral sex bargain, so Jodi makes them switch places. Sinn takes her skirt off and mannnnn, is she gloriously thick. Jodi jumps on into Sinn’s pussy to show them how pussy eating is done, and then insists that Drake eats her out to make sure that he knows what he’s doing, and Sinn masturbates while watching. Finally, Drake switches back to Sinn’s pussy, and, hell yes, does she cum or what?

Mother's Indiscretions 4 Threesome Jodi West Sinn Sage Drake

Finally the main event! Jodi refuses to let this wayward couple fuck in missionary, so she teaches them all about doggy, and then cowgirl. I’ll tell you what, Sinn’s big ol’ booty looks goooood and deliciously jiggly riding a dick. Jodi helps out here, first demo-ing doggy and then guiding Drake’s cock into Sinn’s pussy when she climbs on top. Jodi refuses to let Drake cum inside Sinn and aims his cock at her ass.

The marriage is saved!!

Mother's Indiscretions 4 Sinn Sage boy girl

Sinn Sage is pretty much the most acclaimed lesbian strap-on top in the porn industry. She famously wields a silicon cock like it was an extension of her own body, pounding countless ladies into orgasm over the years and looking damn good while doing it. It’s a neat switcheroo to finally see Sinn on the other side things, and she does an admirable job. I think she does best in a more dominant role, so I’d love to see her be the one to take the reins in her next B/G scene. While Drake also does well and they obviously know how to please each other, he doesn’t really have the star power to match Sinn, so hopefully one day we’ll get to see her paired up with a male superstar like Manuel Ferrera or Mick Blue.

Until then, Sinn Sage’s first B/G scene is a great addition to her extensive oeuvre that should please her many fans!

Interview With Chelsea Poe

Fetish FvckdollsFetish Fvckdolls, the latest from Chelsea Poe and TROUBLE Films, is a breath of fresh air around the office. It’s surprisingly rare to see transwomen bottoming in BDSM scenes, but Chelsea Poe and company use their brand of artistic, experimental pornography to bust down barriers and make the porn that needs to made, filling in the gaps left by mainstream studios. It’s also way fucking hot. Chelsea was kind enough to grant us an interview about Fetish Fvckdolls, trans and queer activism, and what’s next.

 Chelsea PoeJudy Hologram: Introduce yourself! Who is Chelsea Poe?

Chelsea Poe: I’m a queer, experimental, femme artist who has been making porn for the last 3 years.

JH: You came up in the punk scene and have been very vocal about how trans and queer performers need to be more DIY in their approach to making porn. What went into getting Fetish Fvckdolls made?

CP: The whole concept behind Fetish Fvckdolls was years of trans performers getting shut out at major BDSM companies and being told there’s no interest in trans BDSM. For real life submissive trans women like Stefani [Special], myself, and countless other trans women we figured if we didn’t make it, it wouldn’t exist. So the whole concept of this project was everyone coming together to try to create a trans BDSM film. Stefani produced her own scene, I did a collaboration with Foxhouse Films & then I directed and shot Kelly [Lox]’s scene with Ramses Rodstein.

JH: Did you run into any challenges getting this movie made?

CP: Since I started producing films with Fucking Mystic in 2013, you start to learn there will always be things that go wrong when producing films and the most important thing is just to push forward to release the best piece of art you can. Overall, there’s nothing I can remember going wrong or causing enough stress that I can really remember it now, so that’s probably a good thing.

JH: Why is it important for you to depict transwomen in submissive/slave roles?

CP: My actual real life role is a being a slave/submissive so it just kind of naturally came to me when I was coming up with ideas for future projects. Everything that I do on camera is a depiction of part of my sexuality, at least at this point in my career I kind of view performing like performance art where I want to share these experiences with a audience to kind of further what trans women are allowed to do in porn. Largely when I got into the industry the majority of gigs for trans women were solo shoots and I simply really enjoy extreme porn and think other trans women who do deserve to see trans women in those roles.

Fetish FvckdollsJH: What went into your casting decisions for Fetish Fvckdolls?

CP: I contacted Kelli & Stefani pretty early on about this project right after I shot with Foxhouse without a real plan of what this film was going to be. Courtney Trouble and I thought a trans masc on trans femme scene with Ramses and Kelli would be a super great fit, then Stefani performed with her real life Domme Mistress Kara.

JH: Do you see the second scene (with you, Alyx Fox, and Suzie Spindrift) as a cuckqueening scene? If you do, that’s especially awesome; I don’t see nearly enough cuckqueening in porn.

CP: I actually don’t identify as a cuckqueen. I’m super into humiliation and giving up power when submitting so I can totally get off in a scene like that, but I don’t consider myself a cuckqueen. I think it was Foxhouse’s intent for having it to be a cuckqueen scene, but after getting squirted on nearly 30 times, I always felt looking back at it, it has some intense lesbian bukkake vibes like something you would see on German Goo Girls (a really intense German bukkake site).

JH: Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe this was your first time directing. What was the experience like? Do you think you’ll continue that pursuit?

CP: I actually co-directed Fucking Mystic then produced The Submissive Mixtape so coming into shooting and directing Kelli’s scene felt pretty natural, but that was the first scene I was behind the camera so I had a few moments of doubt, but I am really in love with Courtney Trouble’s edit of the scene.

JH: Who are your porno muses and role models?

CP:  My biggest role models in porn are Sasha Grey, Stoya, Mandy Morbid, Jiz Lee, and Courtney Trouble. They’ve all been extremely unique performers who did what they wanted on their terms and actively used their role in the industry to improve condition and/or speak out. I feel like if I can contribute 1/4th of what they have in their careers, I can make a big difference in trans porn.

Chelsea Poe and Courtney TroubleJH: You recently tweeted about how much more comfortable you are on a queer run set as opposed to a studio run set. What do you look for in a set that puts you at ease?

CP: Largely my queer sets are my punk friends and I trying to make a project together just to make something. When you’re on a mainstream set, there’s power dynamics, you might be asked to perform at the middle of the night because you’re receiving “x” amount of money and they simply don’t care about a collaboration or the model’s well being. There’s natural power dynamics that go into mainstream shoots, rather it’s about which girl on set is going to be on the cover, who is getting top billing, who is getting paid what, who is getting more lines, etc. I feel like after being on some really negative mainstream experiences in the last year, I’ve been more mindful as a director to really try to keep it feeling like a collaborative art project that isn’t about any one person’s vision.

JH: How has porn starring transwomen changed in the past few years? Do you think you’ve influenced the genre? What changes would you like to see in the future?

CP: Just what trans women can do now is night and day from when I got into the industry 3 years ago. I think I have been able to have a decent amount of influence because I do work with a indie company who largely lets me put out the content in the way I want to put it out so we have been able to take risks and prove you can think outside of the box with trans porn. I think the more and more performer/producers making their own content the better and more diverse trans porn will be in the future. I believe studio porn is slowly dying across the industry and performers making their own content is the future of porn.

Chelsea Poe TransSensual My TS StudentJH: In the past year you’ve become something of a fixture over at TransSensual. Nica’s movies are very different from the alt-porn that you usually appear in. What has it been like making that kind of switch?

CP: I think being able to do TransSensual films in New England is a really good outlet in addition to what I’ve been producing on my own for TROUBLE Films. I’ve been able to work with a lot of amazing performers for TransSensual and it has given me a little bit more mainstream credibility than some roles I’ve really been able to sink my teeth into. I really hope to work for TransSensual again in the future because I really really enjoy the films they put out and the way they market them.

JH: Are there any non-porno things (art, music, movies, video games, books, etc.) inspire or influence you as a performer?

CP: I’m super into queercore bands, my friends are mostly artists, musicians, and filmmakers. I’m surrounded by radical politics living in Oakland, surrounded by Silicon Valley, and always kind of traveling is what I believe is influencing me the most right now. I believe these elements are always going to work their way into my films whether I try to or not. The coolest thing in the last 3 years of making films has been talking to people who make other media and trying to take what their ethic is and try to put it towards my films.

Chelsea PoeJH: When you’re not performing or participating in activism, what do you like to do?

CP: I’ve basically been traveling and making films for the 2 years so I feel like I don’t have much downtime away from art, porn, or activism. Largely when I’m home in Oakland, I’m a homebody and pretty big on watching documentaries. Apart from that I’ve dabbled with golf and I have a noise band named Arondeus.

JH: What advice do you have for new queer and trans performers?

CP: My biggest advice industry wide is find a way to make content yourself so you never have to rely on someone else giving you work. Porn is a fickle industry and if you want a way to make money off yourself, the best way to do so is owning the footage. I think producing your own footage can help you as a performer as well because you have more invested into your performance than a few hundred dollars from a director.

JH: Are there any other performers that you haven’t gotten to work with yet who you’re hoping to perform with in the future?

CP: There’s quite a few I really hope to work with. Vex [Ashley], Stoya, Sinn Sage, Venus Lux, & Goddess Soma.

JH: What makes you feel sexiest?

CP: I think subbing makes me feel the sexiest, like just that moment of giving up power is really sexy to me.

Chelsea PoeJH: What’s coming up next for you?

CP: I’m releasing a slave training film called The Training of Poe this month, I just wrapped my full length directorial debut that should be out before this year is up, and there may be a possible screening tour to go with it on the east coast/midwest.

JH: Any final words?

CP: I just want to say how great HotMovies has been towards TROUBLE Films and myself, really appreciate the support and everyone at HotMovies & HotMoviesForHer.

Judy Hologram’s XXX Bachelorette Porno Fantasy

Nothing gets me wetter than watching beautiful people express their most hideous delusions in a highly constructed, high pressure environment on national television. This is why I fucking love The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. This season in particular, with bachelorette JoJo Fletcher’s appalling taste in men and the emergence of one of reality TV’s greatest villains, Chad Johnson, has cemented my love for this shitshow. Now I want a porno version of it. With fantasy suite dates coming up faster than Evan’s erectile dysfunction clinic, I am very graciously throwing the industry a freebie and have cast and written The Bachelorette 2016 XXX.

JoJo

JoJo Fletcher Tori Black

JoJo Fletcher is a spunky, girl-next-door from Texas with great hair. She keeps on giving roses to unlikeable grifters with identical haircuts. She says, “I have to trust my gut.” I say, “Your gut is untrustworthy.” I wanted to cast someone with big boobies to play her, but I’m just going to bring Tori Black out of retirement and call it a day.

Chris Harrison

Chris Harrison Evan Stone

Chris Harrison has been hosting this show for fucking forever, and will probably continue hosting it until they lower his cold, dead corpse in his grave. He will be played by Evan Stone with a haircut.

Ben Higgins

Ben Higgins The Bachelor Porn Tyler Nixon

Last season, Bachelor Ben broke JoJo’s heart by not realizing that polyamory is a thing. After telling both Lauren B and JoJo that he loved them, he got all weepy and confused and ultimately proposed to Lauren. To be honest, their aggressive blandness made them perfect for each other. Tyler Nixon, the sweetest looking Homecoming King of this generation of male porn stars, gets the part of Ben.

Lauren B.

Lauren B The Bachelor Elsa Jean Porn Star

When asked what she looks for in a man, Lauren responded with, “I’m looking for someone who’s like my dad. My dad likes lawns!” Angelic Lauren B will be played by Elsa Jean in what will surely be the most challenging, in-depth role of her career.

Chad

Chad Johnson The bachelorette Chad White porn star

There’s something about the name Chad that spreads like a virus through the host’s body and infects them with a certain je nais se quoi. It’s a bit of bad fashion, douche-baggery, and over-confidence mashed together into a mess of a human that I can’t help but find endearing. Some people will tell you that a Chad is always a bro, but this is not true. My personal Chad went to art school with me and has excellent taste in mid-century furniture. I once suggested that he drink a glass of water instead of another can of Coke. “Water!?” he sneered. “Not in this body!” I once had to stay an extra twenty minutes at his apartment watching him play saxophone when I’d only come over to borrow some allen wrenches. He rubs garlic powder on his online-purchases to try and get them for free. There is a ridiculous quality that runs through the veins of all Chads. God bless them.

Chad Johnson, the villain of this season of The Bachelorette was perfect in that he was simultaneously insane yet reasonable. We nodded our heads in agreement when he sneered at his competition, “You’ve only known her for two days, how can you be in love with her?” And then we shit ourselves in horrified delight when he threatened to rip off everyone’s arms and legs and throw their torsos in the pool. I loved every inch of his ‘roided out soul.

HOWEVER, it was reported by several news outlets that Chad’s real first name is not in fact Chad, but BRIAN. Chad is Chad’s middle name, and he’s been going by Chad all his life. This means that Chad CHOSE to be a Chad, and this was hugely important to my casting decision. Only a Chad can truly understand another Chad, especially a Chad who also chosen to become a Chad. Therefore, porn star Chad White will be playing bachelor Chad, so that he may plumb the depths of what it means to be a Chad.

Evan

Evan The Bachelorette Marcelo Slave Porn star

Evan is the wimpy, weepy owner of his very own chain of erectile dysfunction clinics (or, as Chad once called it, a “boner business.”) His downfall in the game (sorry, “journey”) of The Bachelorette came in his thinking that he was somehow smart, witty, and charismatic enough to take down The Chad Bear. By pettily wining about how Chad ripped his v-neck, and failing to deliver Jojo an ultimatum about Chad, Evan came off as the pettiest little man we’d ever seen. My casting choice is Marcelo with a wig and a glued on goatee to play a cuckolded Evan.

Aaron Rodgers’ Little Brother

Jordan Rodgers porn parody

To help fill the fame shaped hole in his heart, Aaron Rodgers’ Little Brother will be played by Jordan Rodgers.

Luke

Nick The Bachelorette Prince Yahshua porn star

It’s no secret that The Bachelor Nation has a wee bit of a problem when it comes to race and diversity. There’s never been a lead of color, and non-white contestants never make it very far. We had a hard time casting lily-white Texas cowboy Luke (Andi and Dee suggested a Frenchman and a Pole, respectively) so I decided to take a trip off the beaten path and give my Bachelorette porno the diversity that the original never had. Luke will be played by Prince Yahshua. This is also a cry to help to Prince, who blocked me on Twitter a few weeks ago for mysterious reasons.

Please, Prince… give me another chance. Let me make it right between us. I don’t know what I did wrong, but we can fix it, together.

Robby

Robby The Bachelorette Logan Pierce pornstar

Soulless, dead-eyed, possibly gay Robby was another one that we had a tough time with. There’s no one currently in XXX that can pull off his swimmer’s bod or his seemingly perfect, computer animated hair. Logan Pierce plays creepy pretty well, so we’ll throw the role his way.

Chase

Chase The Bachelorette Fucking Machine Roomba

Chase does not experience emotion, so he will be played by a fucking-machine mounted on a Roomba.

SCENE 1

The Bachelorette porn parody JoJo Ben Lauren cuckqueening

Scene one is a flashback to the end of Ben Higgins’ season. I am of the opinion that there isn’t enough cuckqueening scenes in porn. After getting dumped by Ben in favor of Lauren, JoJo stands in the rain outside of Ben and Lauren’s hotel room and watches them make aggressively vanilla love. She vows revenge. She won’t get any actual revenge because this is porn and plot holes are acceptable.

SCENE 2

The Bachelorette Porn Parody JoJo Tori Black Chad Evan

We flash-forward to the middle of this season, immediately after the Chad bear is dismissed from his two-on-one date with Alex. You might think that when I say “two-on-one” I mean a threesome, but you’d be wrong. After Chad stalks back to the mansion through the underbrush with all the grace of a serial killer who’s been caught, he arrives and drags his fingers across the window. Evan demands restitution for his ripped shirt yet again, so Chad hangs him up on a wall-sconce by the neck of his current shirt. JoJo arrives back from the rest of her date with Alex, and is driven mad with lust by Chad’s bulging vascularity, Evan’s prostrateness, and the platters of cold cuts that Chad has kindly set out for her nourishment. Thus begins a cuckolding scene between JoJo and Chad, with Evan as the cuck. A raw yam is used as a dildo. After the cumshot, Evan’s shirt rips and he falls to the floor, and Chad pops a blood vessel and passes out. When he reawakens, the rest of the house has left for Uruguay.

SCENE 3

The Bachelorette Porn JoJo Tori Black gangbang

We flash forward yet again to the most important episode, FANTASY SUITE DATES. We all know that the fantasy suite is the night that JoJo finally gets to fuck everyone, but due to budget cuts at ABC, the episode can only take place over one night instead of three. Also, I fucked up my math so there will be four guys in the Fantasy Suit instead of three. Get ready for the gaaangbaaang!! JoJo gets fucked in all kinds of fun ways by Aaron Rodgers’ Little Brother, Luke, Robby, and RoombaChase while Chris Harrison watches through a one-way mirror. Usually we look for teamwork in our gangbangs, but this one is a bit of a mess as the guys all vie for supremacy.

At the end of the gangbang, Chris Harrison appears from a revolving bookcase and informs JoJo that she must give a rose to one of the guys. She ponders for half a second before announcing, “I’ve decided to give this rose to someone who I really admire and want to give some validation to as I continue this journey: myself.” She flashes the peace sign and exits the hotel room, never to be seen again.

Obviously she’s actually going to choose Aaron Rodgers’ Little Brother but porno is the place where all of my fantasies can come true.

By the way, there are a bunch of actual parodies of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette that you can watch while you wait for mine to be filmed.

Judy Hologram does not accept this rose. You can following her on Twitter @JudyHologram and the rest of us @HotMoviesForHer.

Girl/Boy 2 Review

Girl/Boy 2 BoxcoverWhen Girl/Boy 2, the latest from performer/director Dana Vespoli, hit HotMoviesForHer on June 8th, it created a mini sensation in the office. To be honest, it feels new, important, and valuable. Other studios and directors have been exploring gender for years, but the backing of industry leader Evil Angel allows Girl/Boy 2 to reach and influence new audiences. Vespoli builds on the themes of gender fluidity of 2013’s original Girl/Boycasting genderqueer, trans, and cis stars, including the original FTM pornstar Buck Angel in his first ever mainstream straight scene with the stunning Valentina Nappi. Where Girl/Boy used a lot of dialogue between mostly cisgendered performers to communicate gender fluidity, Vespoli allows the performers’ bodies and actions to speak for themselves in Girl/Boy 2, resulting in a powerfully quiet and erotic work of art.

 

Scene 1 – Dana Vespoli and Markus Dupree

Dana Vespoli and Markus Dupree

As a huge Bowie fan, I was absolutely thrilled that Dana Vespoli (one of my favorite directors and performers) would do a tribute to Bowie in Girl/Boy 2. Bowie played with gender his entire career, from his Ziggy Stardust persona to the Thin White Duke. He played with stereotypes, theatrical tropes, and sexual identity. Who doesn’t like a masculine body in a tight-fitting dress? If this is your thing then you will love Markus’ look as the Aladdin Sane character, and Dana with an altered Ziggy mask.

Dana Vespoli and Markus Dupree

Dana takes the lead as she brings Markus deep in her mouth, but as they start to have sex Markus takes back the dominant position. At times Dana is submissive and pleads with Markus, and at other times she is definitely in charge. Just like the Starman, Dana and Markus create a scene in which they ask the audience what it means to be a boy or a girl. Is it how we like to have sex, or is it the clothes we wear? While there is no definitive answer, watching the shifting dynamics in this scene was really fun.

Scene 2 – Venus Lux and Sovereign Syre

Sovereign Syre and Venus Lux

When Judy asked if we could do a group review of Girl/Boy 2, I made everyone else choose their scene to review before me. I honestly couldn’t pick because I’ve been excited about the movie and the cast list since I heard about it. The whole movie is dynamite, and I truly enjoyed seeing Sovereign Syre and Venus Lux together. Both women exude confident femininity and supreme sensuality. The opening of the scene, when Venus joins Sovereign on the couch, is ripe with a sense of longing and bubbling desire. The two porn stars tentatively touch hands and furtively glance at each other, as if to suggest they’re not supposed to be together. The scene is quiet but for the crunching of the leather sofa.

Venus Lux and Sovereign Syre

And then a gonzo porn rarity happens. Venus’ eyes graze over Sovereign, as if she’s deciding what to do with her friend. Venus and Sovereign start kissing, slowly, delicately. Sovereign slowly strips to her bare, creamy skin while fully clothed Venus begins to choke her. That’s when I noticed the dynamic shift from a nervous set of lovers to one with a slight D/s twist. Venus runs the scene, gently giving directions to a submissive Sovereign. They maintain long stretches of eye contact as if engaged in a call and response pattern of dominance and obedience. It’s so subtle, but it’s absolutely delicious to watch. Venus looks as though she’s evaluating every move Sovereign makes. Sovereign barely talks, but gasps at every nipple pinch, tit slap, girl cock thrust, and cunt fondle Venus delivers.

Venus Lux and Sovereign Syre

Compared to most gonzo scenes I’ve watched, Scene 2 of Girl/Boy 2 is so quiet. All of the dialogue is spoken in low tones, and the breathing of the performers seems to indicate actual pleasure rather than dutiful performance. Venus and Sovereign look completely at ease. (Maybe this is due to the lack of contortionist positions in the scene. Also, there are no close-ups of the penetration.) Both ladies are flushed in the face and chest towards the end of the scene, indicating actual arousal. The simultaneous, yet separate, orgasms and dazed post-climax expressions of Sovereign and Venus at the end make this scene intensely erotic, and one of my new favorites.

Venus Lux and Sovereign Syre

Scene 3 – Buck Angel and Valentina Nappi

Valentina Nappi and Buck Angel

Looking like a picture-perfect 1950s housewife, the scene opens with stunning Italian star Valentina Nappi sweeping the floor before strapping Buck Angel walks through the door. Buck sits down in an armchair and Valentina begins doting on him like a loving wife, but Buck doesn’t seem all that interested in Valentina, at first. Soon, Valentina uses her feminine wiles and sexy pantyhose to entice Buck into noticing her, and notice he does!

Valentina Nappi and Buck Angel

Once she sees that she’s caught his eye, busty Valentina climbs atop her man’s lap and hastily unbuttons his shirt while kissing him with fervor. Val’s red lipstick smears all over Buck’s lips and mustache, but he doesn’t seem to mind. Buck stands and removes his pants and reveals his shaven pussy. Valentina wastes no time kneeling down before her man and taking his engorged clit in her mouth, while Buck leans over and fingers her pussy.

Buck Angel and Valentina Nappi

After eating Buck’s pussy in a very submissive fashion, Valentina is seated down while Buck hungrily returns the favor. Enthusiastic cunnilingus and finger-fucking ensues from both parties throughout the scene, ending only when each performer has cum multiple times and they are too exhausted to continue. If this scene doesn’t get nominated for an AVN award, I’ll be genuinely surprised.

Buck Angel and Valentina Nappi

Scene 4 – Jiz Lee and Ruckus

Jiz Lee and Ruckus

Girl/Boy 2 concludes with inimitable non-binary star Jiz Lee joined by pansexual, heavily tattooed Ruckus. Beautiful, butchy Jiz picks up hitchhiker Ruckus, clad in a breezy orange sundress, in a blue mustang alongside a California mountain road. Without a word, the couple parks at a scenic look-out point (they have company – the white minivan next to them also contains a couple making out). Jiz sits Ruckus up on the hood of the car for a bit of kissing that quickly turns into cocksucking, and Ruckus’ cock looks gorgeous against their dress.

Jiz Lee and Ruckus

Jiz plays a bit of an aggressor and Vespoli’s camera keeps the focus on Ruckus laying back, looking pretty, and enjoying the blowjob. After a few minutes, it’s Jiz’s turn, and they switch places with Ruckus, laying back on the hood and getting their pussy eaten. These two make for an incredibly sexy visual; Ruckus is tan, tatted, and their shoulders look particularly broad and strong in the skimpy spaghetti straps of their dress. Jiz, on the other hand, looks pale in the sun, and their body is both strong and feminine in their black tanktop, dark jeans, and leather chaps.

Jiz Lee and Ruckus

Ruckus finger fucks Jiz while Jiz rubs their clit, Ruckus’ brown hair flopping around as they stare at Jiz, leading to Jiz’s first orgasm. Jiz orders Ruckus back up on the car and continues sucking cock before the condom comes on. Jiz briefly grinds their pussy on Ruckus’ cock before slipping it inside for some cowgirl.

Jiz Lee and Ruckus

When Jiz pulls Ruckus into a sitting position, it strikes me how often we see male performers repositioning their female counterparts, but not the other way around, and that the radicalism of this scene goes much farther than just casting genderqueer performers. There were times where I wanted Jiz to peg Ruckus, but I actually don’t miss it. I feel like that may have been too obvious, and that Vespoli and her performers have much more subtle and more powerful ways of undermining the typical binary structures of pornography.

Jiz Lee and Ruckus

The scene continues with Jiz and Ruckus fucking in missionary, where Jiz rubs their clit to another orgasm. Ruckus leans back onto the hood and Jiz pull the condom off and jerks Ruckus to orgasm, their ropy cum pooling on pubes and belly. Ruckus is left waving goodbye on the side of the road as Jiz drives off, concluding a great scene in a soon-to-be legendary film.

Women of Gonzo: Dana Vespoli Interview

Dana Vespoli directorIt’s no secret that here at HMFH HQ we’re all big fans of performer turned director Dana Vespoli. Over the years, she’s helmed both dark, dramatic features and hardcore, dirty gonzo flicks, sometimes even blending the two. Porn’s gonzo genre has often been looked down upon by mainstream as being something that the average woman could not enjoy, with its usual focus on the more extreme side of pornography and unwillingness to examine the relationships and emotions of its subjects. Vespoli is seen as a pioneer of the genre, approaching gonzo with the sensitivity and candidness of an artist, a documentarian, and longtime fan of pornography. With movies like Fluid, Dana Vespoli’s Real Sex Diary, and the genre/gender blending Girl/Boy and its recently released sequel Girl/Boy 2, Vespoli makes it clear that she’s one of the most porn’s valuable directors working today. She generously agreed to an interview with me about her work as a gonzo director.

Judy Hologram: How do you define gonzo porn?

Dana Vespoli: I know that most people think of gonzo porn in the Hunter S. Thompson “breaking the fourth wall” way, but I think of it as indie movie making—so the crew is smaller, you’re working with fewer resources. It has a more intimate feel to it.

JH: Who are some other adult directors who have influenced you or who you admire?

Dana: John Leslie, Joey Silvera, John Stagliano, and Radley Metzger are major influences. I really admire Nica Noelle, who has been a great ally and friend in the business. She taught me a lot about the seduction aspect of porn. The importance of restraint. Her work is very elegant, and she’s smart as a whip.

JH: A lot of the gonzo porn that comes into the office has this strong sense of machismo to it and feels like it was made for the male gaze. Do you think that being a woman affects the way you approach gonzo?

Dana: I don’t know. I think it has a lot to do with the fact I was heavily influenced by the porn from the 1970s—it was the first porno I ever watched, and it felt very free, and happy and magical to me. There were all kinds of people having sex—black couples, women of all shapes and sizes and pretty decent narratives. Men weren’t cropped out of frame, and the scenes were very much about people giving and receiving pleasure. I carried that sensibility with me when I started shooting my own stuff, although I let it go for a minute, in my anxiety to try to keep up with the current times and see better financial returns. Everything now is so fucking compartmentalized because porn has turned into a fast food culture.

Dana Vespoli and Markus Dupree
Dana Vespoli and Markus Dupree in Girl/Boy 2

JH: When I interviewed B Skow, I learned that that he has a broader definition of gonzo than what I had, and his doesn’t necessarily include breaking the fourth wall and directly addressing the camera. He considers some of his plot-based and vignette movies to be gonzo as well. Do you think of any of your movies the same way?

Dana: Yes

JH: What made you a fan of the gonzo movies?

Dana: I became a fan of gonzo because I had endured so much of the stuff coming out of Vivid and it felt very cold and phony. I was trying to find movies that had the same intimacy as the old movies I had watched when I was 12. I found Seymore Butts and was hooked. After that I found John Stagliano and John Leslie.

Dana Vespoli and Chanel Preston
Dana Vespoli and Chanel Preston in Real Sex Diary 3

JH: A lot of your earlier work for Evil Angel was POV, but in the past two years or so you’ve started moving back in front of the camera with series like Lesbian Public Sex Fetish and Dana Vespoli’s Real Sex Diary. You’ve said in past interviews that female directors who held the camera, like Mason and Francesca Le, were influences on you. Do you think that you’ve started moving away from those influences and coming into your own as a director, or is there a different reason for this change?

Dana: My first movie with Evil Angel was a feature called Forsaken. After that feature I needed to shoot something inexpensive so I made Lesbian Anal POV, and then did another feature called Descent, and then created a pattern where I would follow a feature with something more cost effective to shoot. I prefer features or vignettes and really just shot POV movies, and Public Sex Fetish as a way to offset the cost of my features. I stopped doing those titles because they didn’t perform very well, and honestly they felt awkward to do.

JH: I’ve reviewed the past three installments of Dana Vespoli’s Real Sex Diary and you know that I’m kind of obsessed with it. In the last one you were kind of musing about whether or not you would continue the series. A lot of gonzo series will just go on forever and have dozens of entries if it’s successful. On the other hand, you seem to have ended Lesbian Anal POV at #5 in 2014. How do you decide when to end a series?

Dana: I end a series when it doesn’t make money, and as it turns out both my Real Sex Diary and POV didn’t not sell well. I will also end a series if I just can’t stand to do it anymore, like My Evil Stepmom or My Evil Stepson. I sold my soul to the devil in the interest of money, and tried out the [family fantasy] shtick, and I just couldn’t stomach it anymore. Not a fan of faux [family fantasy].

Dana Vespoli and Stoya
Dana Vespoli and Stoya in Fluid 3

JH: You live next door to Manuel Ferrara and Kayden Kross, which is like the Bohemian artist lifestyle fantasy of Andi’s and mine. Do you guys collaborate with each other or exchange ideas? Are there any other people in the industry who you collaborate with?

Dana: Manuel and I have kids together, so the arrangement made sense. I’m their daughter’s godmother, too, so it is nice to be able to see her every day. We all respect each other’s privacy and they very much do their own thing creatively and I do mine. I adore Kayden, and love what she and Stoya have with Trenchcoat X, where I’ve licensed all my best work.

JH: Have you had any ideas that you’ve wanted to do but weren’t able to execute for any reason?

Dana: I’ve wanted to do more blending—including scenes with TS performers in non “specialty” marketed movies, as well as gay. I have been discouraged from doing this because it is hard to sell, but I did it anyway with Girl/Boy 2, which comes out in a few weeks.

Buck Angel and Valentina Nappi in Girl/Boy 2
Buck Angel and Valentina Nappi in Girl/Boy 2

JH: What do you think has been your greatest success in this industry?

Dana: Finally being described as iconoclastic in a recent article. I can’t remember where I read that.

JH: You’re known for being a huge movie buff. Naturally that drives some of your plot-driven pornos, but does it also work its way into your gonzo movies?

Dana: Absolutely. I reference stuff all the time.

JH: What mainstream movies have had the biggest influence on your work as a director? What other works of art have influenced you?

Dana: Blue Velvet, and Lost Highway from David Lynch–Lickerish Quartet, and The Opening of Misty Beethoven from Radley Metzger–Romance, and A Real Young Girl from Catherine Breillat—Persona from Ingmar Bergman and everything Almodovar has ever done. I am also inspired by literature, since I spent all of college studying comparative literature and literary theory, and poetry: Rainer Maria Rilke, especially Sonnets to Orpheus, Federico Garcia Lorca, Virginia Woolf, the Ancient Myth, the Bible as literature, it goes on and on. I’m in love with Faust and also the story of Orpheus and Eurydice.

Dana Vespoli porn director

JH: What’s next for you?

Dana: I’m trying to figure that out right now. I am still shooting for Sweetheart Video, and have begun doing some shooting for Icon Male and Transsensual, which is exciting. It has been a struggle to find a happy medium between the art of what I do and commerce. What I love doesn’t translate well in the current porn consumption climate. I’m just trying to find my footing and reach my demographic. We’ll see what happens. I hope to land on my feet.

Happy Memorial Day: The Boys Of Summer

As we head into summer, we’re looking forward to those steamy few months where we get to wear as little clothing as possible and, if we’re lucky, rediscover the magic of summer romance. There is literally, absolutely, definitely no better way to celebrate than to listen to Don Henley’s 1984 classic, “The Boys Of Summer,” while looking at photos of male porn stars.
