Listen to the complete interview and read some question and answers from the segment below:

You’re from Tampa Bay. You like there or LA better?

“I definitely prefer Tampa. LA’s too busy for me. Way too much traffic.”

Stoya

Stoya

www.thedebrief.co.uk – One of the biggest porn names of our generation, Stoya is passionate about driving change in the adult industry. I got to sit down with her at Sexhibition – the UK’s largest sex event – and get her insider opinion on how she sees the adult industry changing. It’s a tough topic, mostly because there is so much work to do: from educating consumers about ethical porn to breaking the stranglehold of the large tube sites and ensuring performers are paid fairly for their work. Alongside other performers and producers, Stoya is at the heart of this huge work-in-progress, and she’s realistic about the challenge: it’s not going to be easy, and change in the porn industry will happen over decades rather than overnight.

Jessica Drake

Jessica Drake

www.dallasobserver.com – San Antonio native Jessica Drake is one of the most successful porn stars working today. As exclusive talent for Wicked Pictures, she stars in six movies a year, with shoots lasting anywhere from three days to two weeks. She’s usually in more than three scenes per movie.

Drake’s career in porn has turned her into quite the entrepreneur. She runs all of her own social media, using it to promote products such as Wicked’s line of vegan lubricants and enhancers called Wicked Sensual Care. Drake also has plans to relaunch her radio show, In Bed with Jessica Drake, as a podcast.

But while she can inspire all sorts of naughty thoughts with her work in porn, Drake is even more inspiring when it comes to the field of sex education. I talked with Drake about working in porn and her ambitions as a sex educator.

Sssh.com Founder Angie Rowntree Talks About Fantasies and the Porn Industry

May 21st, 2016 Comments off

Follow us on Twitter @PornValleyMedia Send email to: ContactPVM@aol.com

porn-for-womenexaminer.com – In the world of adult film, it could be said that every movie is in and of itself a fantasy. Beautiful women with large breasts and well-endowed men having sex for what seems to be an endless amount of time has been the norm for many, many years. Fortunately, times are changing and the industry as a whole has begun to take a closer look into what its audience wants. In the past, most movies were geared towards a male audience and male driven fantasies were the primary focus. Thankfully, the sexual revolution has given women the voice that we lacked for so long. With more and more women becoming vocal about their sexuality, the adult film industry has become a more female-friendly environment. Gone are the days of only beautiful, buxom women starring on film. Actresses of all shapes and sizes are now being cast in adult films and more women are stepping behind the camera and taking on writing, producing and directing roles. One such woman is film director and founder of Sssh.com Angie Rowntree.

Robin Byrd

advocate.com – “Lie back, get comfortable, snuggle up next to your loved one, and if you don’t have a loved one, you always have me, Robin Byrd.” Those have been the most comforting words a TV viewer could hear ever since the ex–porn actress launched her leased-access cable show way back in 1977. In her crocheted bikini and lip gloss, the relaxed, New York–based Byrd brought out porn stars with large body parts to dance, then try to talk, followed by a group rendition of “Baby, Let Me Bang Your Box.” The result has become so legendary that the old episodes are more repeated than I Love Lucy! Meanwhile, Byrd — a longtime Andy Cohen favorite — carries on as a Fire Island deity and the subject of an upcoming documentary.

Jessy Dubai

Jessy Dubai

cjasher.wordpress.com – Jessy Dubai is a multi-award winning transsexual adult film actress whose start as a webcam model at age eighteen has led her to become one of the most in-demand adult entertainment professionals today, working with such big studios as Deviant Entertainment, Evil Angel, Devil’s Film and many others. Jessy took some time out of her busy schedule to tell us a little about herself and her adult film experiences both in front of and behind the camera.

C.J. Asher – Jessy, thank you so much for this interview. How old are you and how long have you been an adult film performer?

Jessy Dubai – I am proud to say I am 25 years old, but as soon as I turn 26 I will keep saying I am 25, at least until I’m 30 (laughs). I have been an adult performer since I was 18, but I’ve only been in the porn industry for one and a half years.

C.J. Asher – You have some rather creative projects going on, such as being a burlesque dancer and costume designer. Tell me a little about them and what else you’re working on right now.

Michael Lucas

Michael Lucas

montrealgazette.com – Famed gay-porn director and adult-film actor Michael Lucas —born Andrei Lvovich Treivas in Communist Russia in 1972— emigrated to Germany after graduating from the Moscow Law Academy in 1994. He began working as an adult performer before founding his own porn production company, Lucas Entertainment, in New York in 1998. Today Lucas has become one of the most successful producers of porn, and has used his success and notoriety to —as a media columnist and university speaker— speak out against drugs, unsafe sex and the oppression of gays, as well as support the state of Israel. Lucas was in Montreal earlier this summer and Pop Tart caught up with the opinionated entrepreneur for a fun and frank Q&A about all things porn, PrEP, LGBT civil rights, and the raid by U.S. federal investigators on the New York headquarters of popular gay-male escort site Rentboy.com. Plus, Lucas talks about his love affair with Montreal.

Pop Tart: When you started out in the porn business, did you anticipate that you’d have this incredible career and longevity?

Jessica Drake

Jessica Drake

stylecaster.com – A few months back, I was listening to Slate‘s (excellent) “Working” podcast, on which people in various professions—from screenwriter to refrigerator repairman—explain in detail what they do and what a typical day’s like. I found most of them fairly interesting, but I was particularly struck by an episode featuring Jessica Drake, a top adult actress and director who didn’t only enlighten listeners about the porn biz, but impressed me personally with how articulate and frank she was about what working in the industry’s really like—especially for a woman.

I knew StyleCaster’s Second Annual Summer of Sex was approaching, and I desperately wanted to chat with her, too, and hear more about what she had to say. That I did last week by phone, and—not surprisingly—I learned quite a bit, namely how open adult actors are about porn not being a wholly realistic representation of what sex is.

allhiphop.com – Jasmine Jae it is a pleasure to have you do this interview with AllHipHop.com !!! How are you doing ? Please introduce yourself to those who may not be familiar with you ! Where are you from and who is Jasmine Jae?

Hey there! I’m a English adult actress/performer from the United Kingdom. A tall, slim, busty brunette with killer eyes and insatiable lips. I’ve been gracing your TV and other screens for around 3 years in various states of undress, doing all those things you wish your wife or girlfriend would do! 

How did you get into the adult film industry?

I had a chance encounter with a well known male performer, Keiran Lee – it’s all his fault lol! He suggested I would be great as an adult actress due to my looks and sexual appetite. After careful thought I decided to take the plunge with Keiran in a scene for Brazzers and haven’t looked back since. 

Do people approach you often about getting into the industry? From your perspective how is it for men versus women in porn?

Mr. Marcus

Mr. Marcus

ebony.com  – Jesse Spencer, a loving husband and father to two beautiful daughters, appears to be your average California state resident. But one glance at his tribal tattoos and signature fitted caps will give him away to any purveyor of pornography as “Mr. Marcus,” the most recognizable African-American male performer in the adult industry.

During my annual participation at Exxxotica Chicago, the nation’s largest sex convention, I had the pleasure of meeting the man who’s been the topic of discussion for the past few years—but not without a few disapproving stares from some of my friends in the industry. He was friendly, charming and more attractive in person that I’d expected. And after sharing a plate of wings at an afterparty (and allowing him to playfully spank me on the convention floor), I decided to cut through the red tape to get to know the man for myself and uncover the truth behind some recent rumors.

Dennis Hof Interview – The Making of a Pimp Autobiography

March 27th, 2015 Comments off

Follow us on Twitter @PornValleyMedia and @AdultFYI1 Send email to: S5ks@aol.com

hofbookfrom esquire.com – It’s only fitting that Dennis Hof’s memoir would arrive in his 69th year. He and equally mischievous publisher Judith Regan likely shared a laugh over that numerical euphemism when they scheduled the brothel kingpin’s debut tome. Although as Hof–owner/proprietor of Nevada’s infamous Moonlite Bunny Ranch (among many other houses of pleasure), aka the site of HBO’s hit Cathouse series—tells it, the idea of sharing his life story was floated more than a decade ago.

“[Regan] tried to get me to do the book all along, and I just felt like there wasn’t an ending to the story,” says Hof, who’s on speaker phone from the Bunny Ranch’s VIP Lounge (where else?) with current girlfriend Krissy Summers by his side. But in 2013, Regan–who was notably fired from Harper Collins in 2006 after accusations of anti-Semitism but later won a defamation lawsuit–launched her new publishing house, Regan Arts. Hof immediately called her up and asked, “What do you want me to do?” Her response, naturally: “Promise me you’ll do your book and do it now.”

Interview – M2M Massage: Erotic Male Massage Aimed at Actually Being Erotic!

Follow us on Twitter @PornValleyMedia and @AdultFYI1 Send email to: S5ks@aol.com

GayMess1Ottawa, Canada – Interview By Peter Berton: It is one of the great ironies of the sex industry that many erotic massages are, frankly, barely erotic at all. The people giving the massages often don’t want to be doing the work; finishing their clients with ‘Happy Endings’ that often aren’t worthy of the name.

In contrast, Ottawa’s M2M Massage (http://m2mmassage.ca) deliberately and definitely provides true erotic massages for its male clients; no excuses! Based on the Body Electric school of erotic massage, M2M Massage is designed help men connect to their erotic energy without apology – and savour it.

M2M Massage’s sole masseur is an Ottawa entrepreneur named Eric. Although gay himself, Eric finds himself serving both gay and straight males as clients. In the process, Eric has discovered a lot of about male sexuality in all of its various flavors. And yes, he loves his work!

Brandi Love

Brandi Love

from 8countnews.com – In this 8 Count News exclusive, David Hopper talks boxing with adult film star Brandi Love, an avid fan and student of the sweet science. Among the biggest names in the adult industry today, Love has starred in numerous scenes since her foray into porn a decade ago. The 41-year-old has made appearances on The Tyra Banks Show, The Dr. Keith Ablow Show and The Howard Stern Show. A self-proclaimed “sexual anthropologist,” she has written a book on sexuality and has lectured college students on sex and alternative relationships.

David Hopper: You’re very open about your love of boxing. You often tweet about fights to your nearly 200,000 Twitter followers. I read where you said you’ve been into boxing for more than 25 years and your husband boxed at the famed Kronk Gym in Detroit. Talk about how you were introduced to the sport.

Brandi Love: It’s kind of funny. It’s kind of like my love for football. I don’t remember a time in my life where I didn’t enjoy it or that it wasn’t around me. My dad and brother were certainly into the football thing. I grew up in Detroit and boxing was huge. It was mainstream. ‘Rocky’ was always around when I was growing up. Though I was too little for the first one, by the time I hit my teen years they were pretty much all out. Myself being an athlete, I always appreciated and respected the sport of boxing. Even though I was a girl and it seemed a little brutal at times I still respected the pure athleticism of these guys – the mental strength, the physical strength, the training, not to mention, the skill. I think as a little kid just being around it and then growing up as a teenager being an athlete myself and appreciating the sport. Then I met my husband in college and he was a boxer. It’s just always been around me and it always will be.

from metro.us – NYU sophomore Diana Colton (not her real name) has an extra line to add on her resume: The 19-year-old filmed two scenes with porn superstar James Deen. Colton said she applied to film an amateur scene with him through his website on a lark; to her surprise, Deen offered to film with her. “Porn” and “undergrad” may ring some bells – or one Belle Knox, at least. But Colton is nothing like the Duke porn star who made waves last year when she was outed. We caught up with the bookish, sex-positive student over the phone.

You’ve done two shoots with James Deen. Have you done any others?

James Deen

from dailybruin.com – James Deen first knew he wanted to be an adult entertainer when he was 6 years old and accidentally discovered an old porn magazine. When he was 18, he entered the adult film industry and has since appeared in thousands of scenes.

Porn Valley Media Interviews – Sophie Delancey: The Art of Blowjob Offers Lessons!

Sophia Delancey interviewed by Porn Valley Media contributor Peter Berton 

By Peter Berton – Many years ago back in high school, I had the greatest luck to get a sex-crazed girlfriend with the ultimate in huge ‘torpedo tits’! She was everything a shy teenager could ask for… until she almost tore off my penis with her all-too-enthusiastic jerking. I had to wordlessly withdraw her hand –that’s how bashful I was — and things went downhill from there.

How different things might have been for me and her if The Art of Blowjob’s (www.theartofblowjob.com) educational videos had been on line? If today, I shudder when I think of the possibilities!

Jeremy Long

Jeremy Long

from dailycal.org – “Do you go to school here?” the UC Berkeley School of Law’s library manager asks Jeremy Long, overlooking the “UC Berkeley School of Law” clearly emblazoned across the top of his T-shirt.

“Yeah, I don’t look like it,” Long says. “But I do.”

Lofty, tatted and muscled, Long, who asked to be referred to by his stage name, physically dominates a space — but he’s not intimidating. He scurries ahead of us to hold open each door, and I’m surprised to hear that he’s soft-spoken. Bay-Area-born, Long got his undergraduate degree in rhetoric from UC Berkeley before earning a masters in business from the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. Now back in the Bay, Long is working on a law degree with the goal of one day becoming a public defender.

Long is also a porn star. Boasting hundreds of thousands of views per video, he is making a name for himself as one of only a handful of Asian male performers in the American sex industry. The Daily Californian sat down with adult actor Long to learn why a full-time law student is building a lucrative side career in the sex industry — and how he’s not going to quit until there are more Asian guys in the game.

Interview – Lisa Ann: Why I Prefer Having Sex With NBA Players

Lisa Ann

Lisa Ann

from GQ.com – NBA All-Star Weekend brings plenty visitors to town. But it’s not just the players who get paid to play. To find out how some of our favorite players might be spending their free time, we talked to one of their closest confidants, Lisa Ann—host on Sirius XM Fantasy Sports radio and star of an adult film or two. She talks to GQ about why she’ll never hook up with more than one guy on a team at a time, how NBA players are the “Victoria’s Secret models” of women, and how she watches the draft every year to pick out her next conquests:

GQ: When did your love for sports turn into a love of athletes?

Lisa Ann: My personal relationship with athletes started very young. In the early nineties, athletes could come into strip clubs. I watched everything change when Mike Tyson went to jail. When that happened, everything went underground. I think that was the beginning of agents and PR guys reaching out to girls for their clients and making these incredibly private interactions where some girls would sign a waiver each time to make sure they can’t sue or mention any of it.

Interview – Wall Streeter Turned Porn Star Veronica Vain: “Either way you’re screwing somebody.”

Veronica Vain

Veronica Vain

from thedailybeast.com – Porn’s latest overnight sensation was creating mainstream headlines well before filming her first scene—all thanks to the power of social media. What started off as a conscious marketing ploy for the 23-year-old finance intern formerly known as Paige A. Jennings catapulted her to instant notoriety. “Veronica Vain” is an ex-Wall Street neophyte and Fordham University graduate with a degree in finance that traded a potential career at the financial firm Lazard Asset Management for one in porn. And she has big plans for porn. Not just as a performer, either. Her end game is bigger than most up-and-coming XXX starlets.

Unlike the case of Belle Knox, the “Duke University freshman” who was forced to take ownership of her public outing by her classmates, Veronica Vain capitalized on outing herself, creating a precursor to the career she desired and tapping into a fan base even before she had a specific product to sell. She was a woman with a plan.

Vain boldly went where no finance intern had gone before, taking a series of racy selfies from her company’s bathroom and posting them to her NSFW twitter account. (Said selfies have since been deleted). She knew she wasn’t going to be in finance long and already had her sights set on porn, but before she left Vain created the perfect headline-grabbing scandal.

Ela Darling

from lasvegassun.com – Our final story gleaned from the 2015 AVN/Adult Entertainment Expo at the Hard Rock Hotel last week is the torrid tale of a stuffy librarian who swapped reference books in favor of XXX-rated movies.

You won’t find this story on the shelves of your local library, but I can assure you that it is fact and not fiction.

Meet rising porn star Ela Darling:

How long was the journey from being a librarian in Massachusetts to the bright lights of Hollywood and now the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas?

It’s been a little over five years now. I retired from being a reference librarian in 2009 to come out to Los Angeles and do porn and some other stuff. I could not be more thrilled, although I do miss the library.

You should support your local library. In fact, if my fans show me their library card, I undo my top and show them my chest as a reward because it’s important to me that they support their local library. I don’t think I can do it in this dress, but if you show me a library card, I promise you a peek later.
