Benchmarking adult award shows, conferences

A few years ago, the adult video industry’s connection with upstart XBiz was tenuous; Hustler and Vivid did not play ball with AVN’s rival, and only Digital Playground seemed to see the value in advertising with the magazine. But that has changed, and now both AVN and XBiz draw from the same pool of advertisers…

It’s more hopeful if you read Hebrew

Here are Zak Sabbath, Mandy Morbid, Kimberly Kane, and Pride of Warsaw Agata at the XBiz Awards. If we look from left to right, the western way, we end up mired in Agata’s rage. But if we read from right to left, we go from Agata’s wrath to Kane’s cautionary bird-flipping to Morbid’s Canadian bemusement…

Kimberly Kane is a handsome woman

Here is chameleon Kimberly Kane at the AVN Awards red carpet. Sometimes she’s blonde, sometimes she is sepulchral, sometimes she performs without a head. She’s versatile. Kane wins my award for Not Hitting You Over the Head with the Fact that She’s A Porn Star. I bet if I saw her in the checkout line…

Mini-review: Shades of Romona

Studio: Adam & EveDirector: Vien SavioCast: Ava Rose, Sasha Grey, Mandy Morbid, The Love Twins, Annabelle Lee, Alektra Blue, Charlie Laine, Joey Brass, Tony DeSergio Hard to tell what Independent Adult Cinema’s “Shades of Romona” is about, if only because “What is it about?” isn’t a question ordinarily asked of our porn movies. Ava Rose…

But the lunatics are running the asylum and, though she would probably benefit…

Hospital: Happy Labor Day

In Benny Profane’s splendid Hospital a couple (Zak Sabbath and Mandy Morbid) fake a miscarriage to scam Kimberly Kane out of 20 bucks. “You sure you don’t want a ride to the hospital?” Kane asks. “We don’t want to mess up your car,” Sabbath responds. They get the money and blow it on candy. I…

Mandy Morbid’s disappearing Hospital

Pictured are director Benny Profane and coverpatient Mandy Morbid at tonight’s release party for the movie Hospital, starring Morbid as the amnesiac and trepanning-happy Lucy. I look forward to seeing this movie (as I look forward to seeing all Vivid-steve movies) not only for the cast (which includes Caroline Pierce, Zak Sabbath, a Mexican enchantress…

Mandy Morbid: Cthulhu is my copilot

Tentacular Canadian Mandy Morbid (TCMM) is visited by the chief of The Old Ones in a new video on her site, shot like it’s Abraham Zapruder’s student film from Miskatonic University. “It’s more hot than gross,” claims director Zak Sabbath, but you be the judge. The tentacles were upholstered with a series of black condoms…

Casting Call: Romona sought for probing, suppression

Rarely are you allowed inside the dream factory that is the adult industry. Only I provide you this service. Only I can pull back the curtain to reveal the throbbing brain trust that gives life to your masturbatory fantasies, and other mixed metaphors. Vien Savio, ace production manager on several Adam & Eve movies, is…

Young Hollywood and the birth of the United States

HBO’s “John Adams” miniseries is pretty compelling, though it inaccurately places the man who would become our second President at the scene of the Boston Massacre. Tom Wilkinson is brilliant as Ben Franklin, David Morse engaging as George Washington, the guy from “Oz” excellent as the guy from Pennsylvania, Laura Linney wonderful as Abigail Adams,…

Carlos Batts’ “Young Hollywood” is…
