The Authentic Lesbian Review: Unsung Black Porn Stars

When it comes to history and pointing out those who were instrumental in influencing and writing that history there are always going to be a few that get left out for one reason or another. When looking at black porn stars in the industry it hit us here in the office that there are so many actors and actresses out there that deserve at least a shout out, so we came up with a list of very influential black adult performers who just about everyone knows when they see them, but never quite obtained the mainstream household celebrity status like Sean Michaels or Heather Hunter for example.

Byron Long

First, let me start by saying this list isn’t in any particular order, as it would be impossible to rank everyone, but what better place to start than with Byron Long, the dick slanging master of ass himself. Yeah, Byron is in the Urban X Hall of Fame (2008) and AVN Hall of Fame (2010) but this brother is somehow left out of mainstream conversations when it comes to black porn pioneers and that’s just wrong.


Everybody should know Monique! She’s one of the few performers who can go by one name and still manage to separate from the pack. From 1996 to 2010 Monique was sucking dicks and licking clits like it was a passion instead of a job. Her sloppy blowjobs along with her intense sex faces make her a face you can’t forget. With over 350 scenes you won’t find a shortage of Monique scenes on our site, but if you’re looking for a place to start try Cumback Pussy 2 Crawling Back For More. Her foursome with Midori, Nyrobi Knights and Tom Byron (who also directed the movie) is amazing.

Devlin Weed

Devlin Weed taught me the deep stroke! I never knew much about when or where he came from, but I knew when he started grinding hardcore missionary style we both were about to cum. He’s also a pretty good dirty talker between the sheets and never shies away from telling a chick to shave her pussy before he goes up in that.

Nyomi Banxxx

I first met Nyomi Banxxx in Zero Tolerance’s Official Friday Parody, and it was love at first site. As if her scene with Lee Bang wasn’t enough, the behind the scenes footage gave fans a taste of her fun, witty personality and I couldn’t get enough. I spent days going through her scenes and was never disappointed. Her boobs always look amazing, her energy is consistently great, and her acting skills are good enough to award her any character she wants. While Banxxx was nominated for over 10 awards throughout her career, her 3 wins all come from Urban X. Definitely unsung…

Lee Bang

Speaking of Lee Bang, you can find him in just about everything made between 2004 and 2011. He’s fucked all the bad chicks with the amazing asses and then married (and divorced) Sophie Dee’s sexy ass. He’s the Nick Cannon of porn, somebody give that man an award!

Jazmine Cashmere

Good lawd all that ass! Jazmine Cashmere owned the early 2000s with her amazing body and great camera presence. The fact that she was in almost every Black Ice flick throughout the years helped tremendously also. When those two got together, a good time was an instant promise. I doubt many forgot Jazmine’s name or ass, but the fact that she was only ever acknowledged with awards and nominations from Urban Spice speaks volumes. Get used to is cause it’s a constant…

Tony Eveready

Tony Eveready is the hilarious guy with a smile on his face in every gang bang. I remember thinking Tony had to be the happiest guy in the world when it came to his job, and why wouldn’t he be!? He’s in over 600 movies and has worked for major studios like Devil’s Film, Elegant Angel, and Heatwave, yet he’s another one who often gets lost over the years.

Candace Von

Candace Von was born to model. In fact, that’s kind of how she started back in 2005. I don’t know the whole story, but I do know a lot of people she made happy throughout the years. She can never be thanked enough for the hours of titty fucking and booty shaking she’s given the world!

Wesley Pipes

If you don’t know Wesley Pipes, at least by face, you are missing out on some of the most energetic, interactive sex ever created! Pipes brought a whole new level of bad boy to the scene when he walked on set complete with “thug life” and gun tattoos, gold teeth, huge bold pieces of jewelry, and an “I’m here to fuck” attitude. You get the impression, even through the screen, that Wes ain’t for the bullshit. Once on set he yelled “Next time I wanna fuck til I cum” after having to beat off the last few minutes and I’ve been hooked every since.

Kapri Styles

Kapri Styles had dudes running around like chickens with their heads cut off for about 5 years straight. After she hit the scene in 2005 nobody could get enough of her caramel complexion, strategically placed tattoos (the ass tats still get me every time), small frame, and of course her beautiful big ass! There’s no shortage of Kapri Styles scenes on our site, but I recommend Nat Turnher’s Phuck Girl 10 for Justin Slayer International. The duo gets downright nasty and Kapri’s ass in on full display.

Jack Napier

Jack Napier is a true pioneer of black porn and no list would be complete without him. He fucked so many white women on camera that I thought his plan was just to capitalize off nothing but interracial flicks. And for a while that’s just what he did! To further leave his mark, Jack went on to direct movies and produced hit series like There’s Something About Jack and Jack Napier’s Ridin’ Dirty.

Marie Luv

Marie Luv is drop dead gorgeous, and because of her look and appeal she actually did obtain a little bit of mainstream success. I love her in everything she did with Mike John for Jules Jordan, and because she wasn’t confined to the same “ghetto booty” stereotypes as many of her peers, a wider audience was exposed to her, bringing her closer to the household name fame that usually indicates you’ve made it. And while she was nominated for a group scene by AVN in 2011, it seems she quietly faded from the limelight and people’s minds over the years.

D. Snoop

This smooth light skinned brother with the perfect straight backs is straight outta Compton and known for his resemblance to rapper Snoop Dogg. When I think of D. Snoop I can’t help but smile with fond memories. The way he busts Veruca James’ pussy wide open in the Official Next Friday Parody makes you want to take notes, and the energy and fun he brings to any of the million gang bangs he’s participated in takes them to another level. He’s another star nominated a bazillion times but never called up on stage.

Sinnamon Love

I know you remember Sinnamon Love! She popped on the scene in 1993 and changed the game with her small frame, big breasts, and plump ass that you can’t get enough of. Love was inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2011, but I was surprised to see that over the course of her 15+ year career she was never nominated for anything else from them. Her scene with Lily LaBeau in Girlfriend’s Black & Tan – A Tasty Mix was worth an award alone. Watching Lily rub her knee up against Sinnamon’s clit to get her off and the ensuing 69 with asses in the air is something you definitely want to see!

Charlie Macc

Charlie Macc and his 12” penis burst on the scene by way of West Coast Productions and never looked back. Watching Macc fuck was always intriguing to me because I wanted to see who in the industry could take a full pounding from his monster cock. Most of the time it hardly got all the way in, but the girls always wanted to try. He strikes me as the type of guy that’s laid back and easy to get along with whether you’re on set or sitting on the porch talking shit with your friends. He’s also a butt fanatic like myself, which is evident by his many appearances in series like Big Phat Apple Bottom Bootys, Big Butt All Stars, Giant Black Greeze Butts, and Big Phat Black Wet Butts.

Cherokee D’Ass

Moving from Charlie Macc to Cherokee D’Ass just feels right. Even if you’ve never seen or heard of her, which I highly doubt, you know from her name what it’s all about. If you’ve had the pleasure of becoming acquainted with D’Ass then yeah, you know what it’s hitting for. Pictures don’t even do her body justice. I’m telling you, watching Cherokee ride dick is one of the most beautiful things you’ll ever see! With all that juicy booty bounding up and down and up and down it’s a wonder dudes don’t nut themselves after just 4 strokes. I can’t lie, she makes a lesbian really sit back and wonder how amazing that shit must feel. I don’t even need to point you in any directions when it comes to her. Watch any movie in her catalogue and you will be satisfied.

Ethan Hunt

Ethan Hunt blew me (and himself) away in the Official Boyz N The Hood Parody from Black Ice (if you haven’t noticed I really like parodies). Everything from his look to his voice fit the part, and waiting for his sex scene, which turned out to be the last one, didn’t even feel long because the movie and it’s execution were that good. Being in front of the camera turned out to be just the start for Mr. Hunt. He took his skills behind the camera to direct and produce, and even went on to start his own production company. The man is successful, business savvy, married to Isis Taylor, and his smile is adorbs… what’s not to love!?


Ahh the icon herself! Say what you want about Pinky. but she is the definition of a black woman on her grind. Being ridiculously thick can take you a lot of places in the adult industry, but Pinky has stretched that shit beyond imagination and when you really sit back and think about it she’s inspiring as fuck. She sold her first flick out of the trunk of her car and turned that into a wig fashion line, a bubble butt tour across the country, features on rap songs and in videos, her own production company complete with contract girls, and she gets paid to host parties and events from state to state. Every time this woman blinks an eye she gets paid, and the crazy thing is she was only active (outside of a few clothed appearances here and there) between 2010 and 2014. Watch her strap game in Pinky’s New Booties 2 or her killer blowjobs in Pinky’s Dick Sucking For Dumb Asses and you’ll see what the fuss is about.

Jon Jon

You’ve seen this skinny, tatted-up, slightly pierced, mohawk wearing dude in everything and just like everyone else you said “oh yeah, that guy” and kept it moving. Jon Jon entered the biz in 2006 and has worked with some of the sexiest women you’ll ever see for major studios like Black Market Entertainment, Evasive Angles, and Lethal Hardcore. His specialty, or more likely that role that keeps coming his way, seems to be banging white actresses like his life depends on it. His fingerprint is all over Mofos MILFs Like It Black series and he has over 600 interracial scenes accredited to his name.

Roxy Reynolds

Feels like this is turning into an asses of the century post and not only am I perfectly fine with that, but I’m throwing Roxy Reynolds in the mix. Look at that thing! With all that how could anybody need anything else? Just sit that bad boy down and we’re good to go. Seriously though, Roxy has been around for years making dicks and clits feel good on top of dancing and modeling in her off time. My all time favorite Roxy scene is every single time she appeared in a Brian Pumper Phattys Rhymes & Dimes title. Those two just work together, plus she shakes her ass during his music videos, making them a little more tolerable, just sayin’.

I laughed, I cried, I reflected on life and even changed religions a few times while looking black actors and actresses up. The influence and culture that has been created as a result of black people’s presence in the adult entertainment industry is evident and essential to keeping our porn space safe, fun, and (mostly) judgement free. There are many many more black porn stars out there who deserve more recognition than the industry, and us as consumers, give them,  so do yourself a favor and treat this list as a starting point to guide your own black porn history research.

Sasha Grey’s NSA Commercial, Porn Stars Should Teach Sex Ed, Your Morning Quickie

So much going on this morning…

First, if you’re anywhere NEAR New York City this Friday (June 21st, first day of summer, people) you should be taking your fine ass to only one establishment — Headquarter’s Gentleman’s Club. As long as you’re over 21, show up after 7pm and bring a $20 donation. The occasion is marking the Oklahoma Disaster Relief fundraiser thrown by our friends at Fleshbot. Git it. And seriously, help those that would much rather be celebrating a Friday rather than trying to figure out how to rebuild their homes. That sexy lil’ thang at the bar you’re eyeing can pay for their own drinks for one Friday, seriously. Lexi Love, Sinnamon Love, Lux Suicide and more will be offering their hand in a date auction.

here’s your personally-made invitation

On a lighter, less-pressing, drunken note, the solid kids over at Jezebel were up to some fun when writer Lindy West got “drunk on celebrity booze so you don’t have to.” But after watching this video, that’s all I want to do, or at least have my own version. After five shots of some vodka and tequila poison created by some famous people (all the brands she could find), Lindy and crew were tipsy and had a well-prepared report card. It’s hilarious, though if I do attempt my own rendition, I’mma need to switch out so much tequila for some Ron de Jeremy rum and Willie Nelson’s Old Whiskey River.

watch it here

 There’s no real complicated way to put this — a principal in the U.K. is saying that it would be best if his students were taught sex ed by a porn star. Dude is retiring in December, so maybe this is just the final “hee haw” of his career, but seriously, he says the kids could benefit from such introspect. You may recall a scene like this in “Girl Next Door” where porn stars were filmed making a sex ed video for high school students. But really? Porn is just another form of entertainment, and isn’t real, everyday sex. James Deen agrees, and he’s a pretty big star.

The following video should come with a warning: Severe Levels of Creepazoid. This stepfather got his stepdaughter into porn, now waxes her, and thought she was hot at age seven. But that’s really not all…

In my circle of friends, I’m definitely the most tech-savvy, which could be due to my social networking focus in my job. I have to keep up with the latest platforms, software, and industry trends. So I’m stoked for what is to come from iOS 7. The unveiling brought us the visuals, and they are immensely different. Think Fisher-Price for adults, to start. So what exactly is so wrong with them? A ton.

Sasha Grey took on the sexy current events of our nation, and starred in one of the latest videos from Funny Or Die. She goes on as if she’s working for a sex phone service, except, creepy. Because it deals with the NSA listening to everyone.

20 Questions With Midori – Fifty Writers on Fifty Shades

MidoriA few weeks back we posted our review of Fifty Writers on Fifty Shades, a collection offering up fifty different perspectives on the 50 Shades phenomenon.  Today we bring you 20 questions with sexuality writer and sex educator Midori, author of the essay “Fifty Shades Of Snark.”  Midori’s piece looks at the kink community’s reaction to the 50 Shades phenomenon (which is quite critical) and tempers that with her own early adventures in the thrill of viewing erotica, creating a balanced and realistic view at the appeal of the series.  Spend a little extra time with Midori in her amazing !

1. How (and when) did you get started teaching bedroom skills and sexuality coaching?
In the mid 90’s I volunteered as peer educator for HIV education and safer sex in San Francisco. Shortly after that, I began writing sexual advice columns for various magazine and papers—always with the objective of giving people permission to shed shame and have smarter, safer, and steamier sex.

Slowly I began teaching classes in the local area. Soon I discovered I had a talent for public speaking, coaching, and designing effective and entertaining classes to help people live fulfilling erotic lives. In 2001 I became a full-time traveling sexuality educator.

The past few years my weekend intensive programs, including ForteFemme: Women’s Dominance Weekend Intensive and Rope Bondage Dojo, have really gained popularity. Recently, Skype and other technology have made it easier for me to help my students with ongoing coaching. It’s unbelievably exciting to be part of people’s lives as they explore, blossom, and grow into living fully!

2. If you weren’t writing, what would you be doing?
Adventure travel guide in exotic hinterlands, guiding people to achieve new peaks, experience fresh sensations, and see wondrous sights!

(Hmmm. Come to think of it, whether in the wilds of jungles and caverns or the wilds of bedroom adventures, I’m drawn to the same thing!)

3. What’s the best thing you’ve learned or best advice you’ve received from the erotic industry?
If it turns you on, someone else out there is turned on by it too!

4. What’s the funniest thing that’s happened while working as a sexuality educator and coach?
Conversations with TSA agents as they open my luggage and find my teaching props! Then they want to come to my classes.

5. What do you think is the biggest misconception about women in the adult industry?
A common misconception about women in the adult industry is that it’s an occupation of last resort. While it may be for some, for many it’s a chosen occupation providing an outlet for creativity, agency, and flexible hours.

6. What did you do today?
Taught a group of erotic rope bondage enthusiasts the joys of passionate movement and hot rope tricks.

7. What would you rather have done today?
A lot more of #6 and then go to the kinky play party happening tonight — and a lot less office work, like work coordination e-mails and answering 20 questions.

8. If you could do a movie with anyone (living or brought back from the dead) who would it be?
Veronica Franco, Michel Foucault, Freddy Mercury, Pharaoh Hatshepsut

9. Who is your favorite adult performer?
Nina Hartley, Sinnamon Love, Adrianna Nicole, Madison Young. Why? They’re my friends and I just think they’re wonderful people! I like hanging out them.

10. You’ve got 20 bucks left to your name; what would you do with it?
Make “stone soup” with my most beloved friends.

11. If you were president, what’s the first thing you’d change?
Reform the electoral college system, and make voting mandatory for all adults with fiscal penalty for failure to comply. Vote!

12. What’s the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done?
Having to read Fifty Shades on an airplane while researching for this book is one of the most embarrassing things I’ve done lately.  I’ve read tons of sex-filled filth during flights, but nothing made me feel more uncomfortable than the possibility of people thinking I willingly chose to read this quality of writing.

13. Which is your favorite project that you’ve worked on?
ForteFemme: Women’s Dominance Weekend Intensive!

Creating an environment and program to help women discover and tap into their authentic power source within, and to find fulfillment in a mutually supportive experience has been deeply satisfying. Watching these amazing women blossom into their fuller potential—nothing like it. Not even chocolate comes close to this.

14. If you could have 1 superpower what would it be?
Cause others to experience deep and profound kindness towards others.

15. Meat or veggie?

16. What is your favorite book?
Like Water for Chocolate by Gabriel García Márquez

17. What is your biggest pet peeve?
Litter bugs. Such a simple act exposes a person as being deeply selfish and immature.

18. What is your best piece of sex advice for women?
Go ahead, be sexually selfish and ask for what you want! Put yourself first, everything and everyone else comes from that.

19. What is your favorite adult movie?
As a pre-teen in Japan I got a peek at Madame Emmanuel on late night TV. If I had to name a favorite adult film, it would be that.

I don’t have a favorite contemporary adult film, but some of my most favorite sex scenes are in these movies…
• Unbearable Lightness of Being
• Indochine
• Cabaret
• Mr. & Mrs. Smith
• The Hunger

20. Tell me one thing you’ve never told anyone else.
I do not have one of those naturally beautiful faces and bodies. I accept that my physical “package” is ordinary. At the same time, I know that I have developed myself into an attractive person, and continue to do so.

Top Five Tuesday – Happy Part 4th of July!

Hello and Happy 4th of July! I searched high and low for decent 4th of July related pornos to keep you entertained, but sadly I couldn’t find anything worthy of your smut watching eyeballs. I couldn’t let this Top Five Tuesday go by without making some sort of XXX Independence Day tribute, so I decided to go with my favorite part/volume 4s from my favorite porno series. Aren’t I clever?

Boundaries 4 – I love watching these hot lesbians push their limits and relinquish control.  All 3 scenes are super intense, but the last scene starring Claire Adams and Sandra Romain takes the cake.  Sandra’s tits look amazing framed by the rope and watching her get turned on by Claire’s foot on her face is almost too much to handle.  This part 4 isn’t a rough sex flick, but it definitely gets kinky.  The ladies from Triangle Films totally know what’s up when it comes to porn for women.

Cum On My tattoo 4 – On the other end of the porno spectrum is Joanna Angel‘s crew getting down and dirty with the  threesomes, blowjobs, DPs and, of course, jizz covered tattoos!  These beautiful ladies are covered in ink and totally down for the sexin’.  A group of awesome porn dudes, including James Deen, Mr. Pete and Alec Knight, complete the masterpiece. P.S. DP = Double Penetration.
Belladonna’s Fucking Girls 4Belladonna has a talent for bringing out the best in the ladies on her porno sets.  By best I mean the dirtiest.  I never tire of seeing her leg warmed girlies loving on feet, pussies, asses and all the sex toys you can shake a dick at.  Ha!  Seriously, the sex is anything but vanilla and I love Belladonna for that.  I am so thankful that she has spread her glorious filth for all the world to enjoy.
Neo Pornographia Volume 4 – Raunchy and artsy.  Those are the two best words to describe this movie.  Per all of Michael Ninn‘s work, this flick is well shot, has has nice lighting and stars the cream of the porno crop.  It is the perfect blend of hardcore and art and I’m pretty into it.  A threesome starring Audrey Hollander, Marie Luv and Otto Bauer?  Yes, please.
Tristan Taormino’s Chemistry 4 (Disc 1) – I have to be honest, this is the Volume 4 that I really want to see.  I am shocked that a Tristan Taormino movie exists that I have yet to see.  It looks like a damn fun orgy and I can’t wait to see Sinnamon Love and Adrianna Nicole get it on!  I was never a fan of the Real World, but this is something I can get into.

Happy 4th of July!



Tristan Taormino’s Rough Sex 2

As much as I love porn and all its awesomeness, it is pretty rare that I eagerly await the release of a porno movie. Sure they come to me and I am excited to see them, but it’s not so often that I hear about a movie and wait with baited breath for it to arrive on my computer screen. It takes an amazing movie to get me all tingly before I even hit play, and this time around I have only two words for you: Rough Sex. Rough Sex 2, actually, as in Tristan Taormino’s Rough Sex 2, the second installment of her revolutionary porn series that brings the real fantasies of the actual performers to the screen and rattles the lines between reality and fiction.

When it comes to any of Tristan Taormino’s movies, I really believe revolutionary is the best way to get her work across. Before the Rough Sex series ever came to pass, there was her straight up instructional videos that removed the drabness and lackluster from educational porn and brought the genre into an engaging whirlwind of anatomy, explanation and hot sexin’. Then was her Chemistry series that brought a group of porn stars together in a house for 36 hours and let them decide who did what with whom and how they did it. The movies brought that behind-the-scenes negotiation to the screen and showed us performers in control of their careers and choices. All of that realness came across in what I can only describe as some of the hottest sex I’ve seen from a mainstream porn company.

And then we have Rough Sex. I was seriously blown away when I first heard of Taormino’s idea of taking the real actors’ desires and creating porno magic. Removing that screen between performer and real person could be risky in some instances, but Taormino sets up some of the safest spaces I’ve seen in porn and brings a general sense of calm and trust to whatever she is working on. But we’ve already reviewed Rough Sex. This time, we are on round two! Continue reading Tristan Taormino’s Rough Sex 2
