F.A.M.E. Awards – Winners Annouced!

Over the weekend Erotica LA hosted the 4th Annual F.A.M.E. Awards (Fans of Adult Media & Entertainment) – the only porn awards show where the fans decide who wins.  Pretty cool, huh?  The fans not only get to pick the winners for each category, they actually get to nominate performers as well.  Totally interactive and 100% fan faves, from favorite Anal Star to Dirtiest Girl in Porn!  Even I voted… though I’m keeping tight lipped about who I picked (I will say that my favie director won, hand down!  See, everyone loves her has much as we do!) Here is a … Continue reading F.A.M.E. Awards – Winners Annouced!

Going Vagitarian with Ginger Lynn

There are certain porn “milestones” that cause one to take a moment to reflect upon. My first scene with Stephanie Swift was one. My scene with Nina Hartley was another. And now, my intense scene with the one and only Ginger Lynn has gained status as one of the most memorable and auspicious of all. I met Ginger for the first time at Playboy Radio more than a year ago, when I was a guest on “Nightcalls.” She let me suck on her nipples and give her a spanking On Air — tasks I considered myself unworthy of performing, but … Continue reading Going Vagitarian with Ginger Lynn

A New Year, A Big Announcement – Introducing “Sweet Sinner Films”

As promised, I have a big announcement to make since returning from AVN. It’s already been noted in the press, but I haven’t yet spoken at length about it publicly. Mile High Media (parent company of Sweetheart Video) and I have started a new boy/girl studio called “Sweet Sinner Films.” We’ve already shot half a dozen movies and counting, with the first release slated for March 2009. I admit, I enjoy directing boy/girl scenes far more than I ever expected. My first taste of it, of course, was performing in a boy/girl scene myself with the extraordinary Manuel Ferrara (for … Continue reading A New Year, A Big Announcement – Introducing “Sweet Sinner Films”

In Consideration of 2008

It’s hard to fathom all that’s happened in the past year. It went so quickly, yet 2007 now seems a lifetime ago. Needless to say, I had a lot to be thankful for this past Turkey day; 2008 was simply one of the greatest years of my life. Most notably, it was the year Sweetheart Video was born. Our first release was in April 2008, and we quickly rose to the top of the food chain (our only real competition being, ironically, my former studio.) We’re up for several AVN awards this year, including Best New Line (i.e., Best New … Continue reading In Consideration of 2008

Dating Civilians 101

Before I became an adult actress and director, I often wondered why it seemed that industry folk dated only each other. Wasn’t it a bit much, I wondered, for two sexually over the top types to pair up? Didn’t they spontaneously combust? Wasn’t someone required to be the “anchor,” in the relationship, the one with a foot firmly grounded in the “real world?” In other words, I had no idea what I was talking about, or how to even begin thinking about it. Since becoming an adult actress, I’ve had several relationships of varying length with “civilians.” Unfortunately, almost all … Continue reading Dating Civilians 101

The Land of the Misfits

People assume there are a lot of pitfalls in the adult industry, particularly in porn, and I’m here to tell you that indeed there are. Well come on now, of course there are. Any environment that offers a disproportionately large helping of excitement, sex (and other miscellaneous forms of indulgence) carries a risk of leading one down a dark path. One that leads to a place where too much sex is never enough, and where the surfeit, rather than making us full, creates a feeling of emptiness and meaninglessness. But there are other cautions, too. An obsession with youth, beauty, … Continue reading The Land of the Misfits

Happiness Through Porn

Recently I was interviewed by a well-known men’s magazine about what it’s like to have a relationship with a “civilian” while simultaneously working as an adult actress. I had been in such a situation fairly recently with someone who had loved to tell others about my involvement in the sex biz (and thus his exciting experiences as my sidekick), but who wasn’t above making the occasional judgment-tinged remark when it suited his purpose. This would mostly be to gain the upper hand in an argument or to use as evidence that I was, let’s face it, “crazy.” He had a … Continue reading Happiness Through Porn


There is, to paraphrase a lovely old verse, something new beneath the visiting moon. And I’ve been writing about it quite a bit lately, because I’m still somewhat in shock. Let me begin by saying that I’ve never completely understood the whole “BDSM” thing. Or I thought I didn’t. I have met and befriended and even “played” with a few well-known masters and S/M couples, and I found the play interesting but not intoxicating. I wondered, then, why I kept “trying it again.” Maybe I’m just a sexual adventuress, I hypothesized. Maybe I’m drawn to extreme experiences and sensations as … Continue reading Awakenings

The Mighty Stephanie Swift

One interesting (and mildly terrifying) facet of my life as a porn actress is that I don’t necessarily know who I’m going to be having sex with on a given day. It’s a little like arranging a boxing match — who do the fans want to see go at it? Who would make good ‘opponents’? Sometimes conventional wisdom is correct, and other times — as highlighted in my last column — it’s a bit of a disaster. And sometimes you strike gold and you find yourself in a scene with Stephanie Swift. Most people know her as that former Wicked … Continue reading The Mighty Stephanie Swift

When Squirting Isn’t Squirting

In recent years, as porn has trended toward the more extreme and novelty-oriented, an act called “squirting” has gained popularity. The proper term, I’ve been told, is “female ejaculation,” and not everyone can do it. Or alternatively, everyone CAN do it. It largely depends on who you talk to, and it’s hard to know whom to believe. Sex Educator Deborah Sundahl has made a career of writing and speaking about female ejaculation and after 20 years she’s still going strong. This suggests most laypeople are still in the dark about the ultimate Female Orgasm, and it’s taking a while for … Continue reading When Squirting Isn’t Squirting
