A Day in the Life of Helly Hellfire

Continuing the A Day in the Life of a porn star series, we have the honor of presenting to you, bombastic sex lady Helly “Hellywood” Hellfire. This fierce betty is a DJ’ing legend, having schooled dance clubs internationally with her illustrious music knowledge repertoire. Helly is also a fine star in the adult entertainment world as well. So ogle over her beautifully crafted ink and go on to read what a random day for her holds.



10am: I wake up and make fresh juice (my favorite is spinach, lemon, apple, ginger). Then, I finalize my packing so I can hit the road, because I’ve got a long drive ahead to Vegas where I’ll be DJ’ing and signing at the Exotic Dancer Expo.

noon: My boyfriend Tak has just pulled in the drive and I’m ready to leave the house. We make a quick pit stop at the tanning salon to get a last minute spray tan…Gotta have dark bronzer for extra shimmer!

1:30pm: I’m picking up my new business cards and DJ booth banner from Next Day Flyers. Now, I can finally be on my way.

 3:30pm: Now, I’m sitting at an auto shop just outside of Los Angeles. There seems to be a problem with the thermostat on Tak’s car. This wouldn’t have happened if we’d taken my Mustang. This reminds me why I don’t buy foreign cars! American cars for life!

4:30pm: Its going take about 2 hours to replace the part, so I head over to the AM/PM station next door for an iced coffee.

6pm: One thermostat & a fan clutch later, we’re back in business! Not even in Vegas & we’re already $400 down. I’m going to have to manifest some luck and make that money back at the roulette table tonight. Tak is kinda pissed off right now, so I suggest we go around out back of the garage and have rough sex to let off some steam. He said he’s afraid he might hurt me. I assure him I can take it! 😉

6:15pm: I take a quick rinse in the sink. My spray tan is coming in nice & dark! I head back to the car & we’re back on the road. I play Judas Priest “Heading Out to the Highway” to get us back in road trip mode.

11pm: I’m finally checked into the hotel room. I’m going to jump in the tub and get caught up on the latest episode of True Blood. What a day! I’m going to bed early tonight, because I have to be up tomorrow at 7am so I can be ready to hit the expo tomorrow.

midnight: I check into my Facebook & Twitter profiles to retweet press releases from my amazing publicist Erika Icon at The Rub PR. I wish my friends and fans “Good night Peepz!” Now, I’m ready to crawl under the sheets with my Zombie Bear: Dead Ted.



Kick it with her every day via Twitter, and please do yourself a favor and check in to her website as well; it’s smoothly designed and you can give her spins a play or two.



Top Five Tuesday – Tori Black

I’m not going to lie – I had no idea who Tori Black was until early this year, when she started  sweeping awards left and right, including three Female Performer of the Year wins (AVN, XBIZ, XRCO).  And once Ms. Black made it onto my radar, she was everywhere I looked – from parodies to apocalyptic erotic adventures!  At this point I was actually surprised that I had never Top Five Tuesday-ed this highly revered leading lady.  Time to make that happen!

Tori Black Is Pretty Filthy: This aptly named smutty romp did not need to win five 2010 AVN awards to prove it’s awesomeness, but it did, which means you should totally watch.
The 8th Day: This is that apocalyptic erotic adventure I was referring to above.  Holy crap is it good.  If you are looking for a sci-fi action porno, you’ve found the Holy Grail.  And it’s garnered more awards than Iwould ever be able to fit into this little box (18 AVN awards)!
PopPorn: The Guide To Making Fuck: Philly’s own PopPorn brings us the freaking hilarious guide to getting busy.  Also a major 2010 award winner.  Yep, apparently Tori played a part in so many of the AVN winnings this year around.
Batman XXX – A Porn Parody: Of all the parodies Tori has done, this is by far my favorite.  She plays Catwoman – need I say more.  HOT!
Pornstar Superheroes: Really the name says it all.  Pure awesomeness and ladies kicking ass from Elegant Angel.  Yep, it’s been a banner year for Tori Black.

20 Questions With Courtney Trouble

Courtney Trouble - director

Courtney Trouble - Award Winner "Most Deliciously Diverse Cast award"  NoFauxxx Roulette  Courtney Trouble - Star

Here comes Trouble… with a digital video camera in tow. Courtney Trouble that is, queer porn director and star extraordinaire. The San Francisco-based Trouble has been making a name for herself since 2002, with the creation of her baby NoFauxxx.com (now the oldest running queer porn site on the web) and in more recent years as she has taken the reins on a bunch of avant-garde feminist porno flicks.

When she’s not accepting awards and accolades (including SF Guardian’s 2009 Best of the Bay Queer Porn and a Feminist Porn Award for “Most Deliciously Diverse Cast”), Trouble is behind the camera, giving direction to some of the hottest stars to grace the porno screen, including Jiz Lee, Syd Blakovich and April Flores, to name a few. Her first movie, Roulette, has just hit HotMovies4Her and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate this fabulously fierce femme queer pornographer and the super hot fruits of her labor.

1. How (and when) did you get started in the industry?
I’m not exactly sure when my involvement with making feminist, queer imagery became an involvement in the adult industry, because at first it was an art project focusing on expressing “real” desires to equalize my experiences as a full-time fantasy-based (aka not-real) phone sex operator. I can’t pinpoint a decisive moment when I realized that No Fauxxx was a breathing entity in the porn industry. Except maybe right now, with my first film being released world-wide on a mainstream (and yet, extremely sex-positive!) level with Good Releasing, and is being reviewed and promoted by people like Fleshbot, Hot Movies For Her, and even AVN. Since the release of Roulette in July, I have been very busy creating my second, third, forth, and fifth films for Good Releasing (Nostalgia out now, Speakeasy out now, Seven Minutes In Heaven out October, Roulette: Dirthy South out November).

2. If you weren’t in the adult industry, what would you be doing?
I was 18 when I started doing phone sex, working from home. I taught myself web design and digital photo editing and printing in my down time during my 4-5 years. I went to school for photography, I actually have two degrees. I think if I weren’t lucky enough to be surviving (meagerly) off my art, I would still be doing something with photography or web design more commercially.

Cry Wolf

This time I was craving a movie I could get lost in, and so I picked up the rather long “Cry Wolf.” With over a 2 hour run time, and more AVN nominations and awards than I can shake a stick at, I figured I’d be in for one hell of an engrossing movie.

Five minutes into the film and I can already tell I’m in for a major treat. The word that comes to mind first is, tasteful, really actually tasteful. I’ll admit that within the first few minutes the male lead has his tongue buried in Monique Alexander’s crotch, but the set, costuming and even the dialogue doesn’t scream wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am. One gets the feeling that you’re watching a particularly raunchy mainstream thriller, complete with sultry seductive femme fatale. That’s high praise coming from me since the lead, Monique Alexander, is the typical porn blond, but with natural breasts and the ability to recite her lines with conviction – so ok, maybe she’s not so typical after all.

2008 eLINE Awards

The 2008 eLINE Awards were announced last week in Berlin and I wanted to give a shout out a few winners.

Petra Joy, the amazing woman behind Stawberry Seductress, was given the Award for Pioneering Achievements in Adult Films for Women. I’m glad to see that the industry think she’s as fantastic as we do!

If you missed our 20 question interview with her the first time around, make sure you take a look now!

My favorite solo sex flick of the year, Barcelona Sex Project, was also highlighted when Erika Lust took home the award for Best Documentary. I can’t say enough good things about this fascinating look into the lives of the six sexy subjects!

It’s nice to see some of our favorite director’s getting much deserved recognition at one of the biggest shows in Europe.


Lights & Darks – An Interracial Spin

Watch the Video

Studio: Rascal Video Category: Gay

I’m pretty sure I’m never going to get sick of watching Rascal movies. Lights & Darks (despite the bad title) is a totally hot GAYVN winner that is a must-see for fans of the hot man sex. I loved that this isn’t your typical interracial film. It seems like a lot of interracial flicks star gay for pay tops that have little interest in anything besides a paycheck. In this Rascal movie, you’ll see men of all races who definitely love dick. I thought that the first scene was the best, but honestly enjoyed all four. In the opening scene, Jake Samms and Tommy Ritter explode on screen. Samms has an amazing body and Ritter surely enjoys every inch of it! Samms holds nothing back as he pounds Ritter’s hungry hole – it’s a frenzied fuck that you really don’t want to miss! Also worth noting is Jason Tiya’s performance in scene two – just because I think he’s super hot. Another great thing about this one is that while it is an interracial film, it’s not based in stereotypes. Well, besides Brandon Lee being cast as the Laundromat owner, but that’s just funny. Anyways, it’s basically about hot dudes fucking – and I’m not going to complain about that!

Studio: Sex Z Pictures Category: 2008 AVN Award Nominees

The Matrix meets Law & Order, with more double penetration, pussy pounding and cum dripping sex than you can shake an underground sim chip at. It’s really no wonder this futuristic cyber-cop thrill porn epic swept the 2008 AVN Awards, with major wins such as Best Actress, Best Special Effects and Best Feature Video, to name only a few. While hunting down a super virus that could corrupt and destroy the future, Special Agents Cray and Born – the incredibly hot Eva Angelina and Derrick Pierce, respectively – get their hands on Tesla (our girl Hillary Hot…err, I mean Scott), a bratty bottom of a cyber-whore who might just hold the key to saving it all. Sure, I had to do a little rewinding to keep up with the plot a few times, but the surprisingly good acting (both fucking and speaking) along with the super varied sex scenes (jerking off in a bathroom stall, sensually touching in a decadent bed, licking pussy in the desert… you get the picture) kept me totally enthralled and begging for more the entire 4 hours. And I won’t get too carried away, but for a non-Hollywood big budget flick, the special effects and sci-fi details were pretty damn impressive.

Women Seeking Women Volume 30

Watch the Video

Studio: Girlfriends Films Category: 2008 AVN Award Nominees

The latest release in Girlfriends Films’ signature lesbian series, Women Seeking Women 30 follows the same formula that has won over both fans and critics alike. You’ll see beautiful women doing crazy things. And I’m not talking about a girl shoving a rubber chicken up her cooch (thanks for that Gia Paloma), I’m refering to things that you don’t find in your typical porno, like kissing, caressing, and genuine female orgasms! Insane! Every scene is pretty good, but my favorite is the third because it features something I haven’t seen much in films from this studio, strap-on play. The women are a little bit older than your typical porn star, but still totally hot. I love that their bodies move like a real women’s does; their asses, thighs and bellies all jiggle as they moved together. Turns out real women don’t look perfect when they’re fucking…who knew?
