Stoya & Kayden Curate Porn Collection

The problem with the current state of the porn industry is, according to acclaimed performer/directors Kayden Kross and Stoya, not always the content itself, but also the delivery, the pricing, the piracy, the web design, the attitutde… fuck, what isn’t wrong with porn today? Under the direction of these two newly anointed legends of lust, however, a vision of porn appears and threatens to demolish the status quo. Introducing Trenchcoatx.

While the rather unfortunate name Trenchcoatx recalls exhibitionist sexual assault (a flasher’s trenchcoat), the service is far from unwanted. Hell, according to the two porntrepreneurs running the thing, it’s damn well essential. See, Trenchcoatx isn’t your average porn site. Instead of offering a huge smattering of so-so smut for one monthly price, this pay-per-view venture removes the need for a constant stream of mediocre content, instead only offering what they (Stoya & Kayden) consider worthwhile, ensuring that every scene and movie offers the viewers something they can’t find elsewhere. Titles already available include Stoya’s directorial debut, Graphic Depictions (starring “genderqueer hero” Jiz Lee and Lily LaBeau), Wide Open: Misha Cross, and Dana Vespoli’s Fluid and there are more titles on their way. Currently, all available scenes are priced at $3.99 each, a very reasonable price affordable to pretty much everyone. It’s also much cheaper than paying for a full monthly membership to a site that really only offers you three or four solid and suitable episodes each month.

Wide Open: Misha Cross

What appears to be missing from Trenchcoatx (which is admittedly still in beta) is some kind of personal interconnectivity. Stoya, in particular, has utilized Twitter as few other pornstars have, letting her voice and career bleed into articles for Vice, orgasmic poetry readings, and finding herself solidified as porn’s smarter, more business savvy “Sxxxa Gxxy”. Hopefully some kind of (how you say) les medias sociaux will arrive with the non-beta version of Trenchcoatx, something that will allow fellow perverts and porn aficionados to communicate with each other and, presumably, provide Stoya & Kayden what they need to push Trenchcoatx, a wonderful idea with a big challenge ahead, what it needs to not only survive, but thrive in the fickle world of online porn

Your Invitation to Lethal Hardcore: Live!

lethal hardcore

Sitting at home (or “on the throne” during an unscheduled work break) and watching your favorite adult performers get their rocks off while you pretend to be somewhere more exciting and arousing than your usual beat-off spot is fun, sure, but it could be a whole lot better. If only you were able to morph into a blowfly and buzz into, say, Evil Angel’s or Lethal Hardcore’s studios for a day, content to watch porn’s most adventurous women perform in the flesh. Sure, you couldn’t touch them (entomophilia doesn’t really have a place in mainstream porn) but just being in the same room as these incredible women as they work their sexual magic should be enough to make any porn fan go gaga at the chance. And now, thanks to Lethal Hardcore’s Stoney Curtis, you’ll have that chance this April!

Having longed for a way to bring the fans to the shoot, Curtis came up with a post-apocalyptic future in which to set a story that he calls “The Hunger Games meets The Matrix.” Giving AVN a synopsis of his upcoming epic, Curtis let the pitch flow: “America has been in a civil war; we’ve overthrown our own government due to the gap between the rich and the poor, which has wiped out the middle class. … Basically, the country has been split into 3,000 separate territories.” Exposure to radiation has left the majority of men infertile and the human race appears doomed until a scientist brings news of a remedy involving the seed of the few remaining fertile men. With the price of sperm rocketing to millions-per-load, the setup allows Curtis to explore what might happen if something would come along to reverse our sexual roles and induce women to “drag us someplace and fuck the shit out of us.” (That’s where Anikka Albrite, Riley Reid, Maddy O’Reilly, Brooklyn Chase, and Layla Price come in!)

To grab your spot on the sidelines and see this sci-fi fuck-fest unfold live before your very eyes – like The Hunger Games, there’s an audience for the (sexual) mayhem unleashed on the field and in the arena – simply join the Lethal Hardcore Fan Club, pick your 15-DVD porn pack and request your free ticket to the LA filming of the company’s upcoming mega-feature. Now, this offer won’t suit those porn viewers unable to swing a few hundred bucks on porn, but if your finances are in order you could buy yourself a front row seat to watch Riley, Anikka, and the others work their magic. Don’t want your face to appear onscreen? There’ll be masks available. Want to bring your lady? That’ll cost you an extra hundred. Don’t want to miss out on a chance to make every porn lover’s dream a reality? Go talk to Stoney Curtis of Lethal Hardcore – he’s making dreams come true!

 

Tory Lane: Insane on an Airplane

Vying for mainstream respectability, some adult performers today claim that feminist ideals, college tuition payments, politically-motivated sexual libertinism, and therapeutic self-treatment are behind their careers in the pornographic arts. As admirable as those motivations may be, there’s also something to be said for those women who, when push comes to shove, enter porn because they’re downright sexually insatiable. Of all such performers, nobody approaches the complete abandon and wild, animalistic intensity of Tory Lane. In fact, the woefully under-appreciated Ms. Lane is such a relentlessly aggressive and committed performer, she sometimes takes things a little too far. Case in point, Delta Flight 17 that flew from Atlanta to Los Angeles late last month.

With a reputation for unbridled animalistic lust and a penchant for DP-heavy gangbangs, roughhousing, and physical abuse, Tory Lane’s infamy in many cases precedes her. When it came to the aforementioned Delta flight, however, Ms. Lane landed in LA a bigger legend than ever. According to eyewitnesses, Lane, a passenger on said flight, lost her temper and started something of a scene prior to landing. As reported by the UK’s porn-obsessed Daily Mail, an apparently intoxicated Lane was arrested after allegedly assaulting passengers and crew while Flight 17 was in the air. Upon arrival at LAX, a “kicking and screaming” Lane was detained by Los Angeles Fire Department and taken to a local hospital for treatment. After being taken to LAPD 77th Division Jail and booked for suspicion of battery on a police officer and public drunkenness. Later released on $21,000, Lane took to Twitter to address the debacle, leaving only this message:

So, in tribute to Tory Lane’s unstoppably wild nature both on- and off-screen, here’s a few choice selections from her porn work.

– Teaming up with dynamic ass-obsessed Romanian gymnast Lea Lexis, Tory’s ‘Wiccan Sisterhood’ scene for Brazzers’ Hot & Mean proves she’s just as fierce paired with a woman as with a man. The leather, chains, and heavy make-up only the scene more carnal.

Jules Jordan has captured Tory Lane at her finest and two scenes in particular prove this: paired with the woman who could be her hyper-slutty equal, Angelina Valentine, in Squirting Machines 2, Tory gapes, groans, and growls like a beast; but even that intense scene can’t match her totally unhinged Oil Overload #3 gangbang, a slippin’ and slidin’ and swearin’ air-tight DP bonanza!

– The relatively sane Bang Bros seem to fly into a frenzy whenever Tory Lane stop by, as evidenced by her infamous Tugjobs effort and a Fuck Team 5 scene that unleashed her, Claire Dames, and Alexa Jordan on the unsuspecting LA public.

– And then, of course, there’s Tory’s recent slate of appearances at “Porno Dan” Leal’s Immoral Live where she does almost everything: smokes cigarettes, diddles herself with a giant candy cane, squirts like a fountain, chokes Brooke Wylde, and rides a whole bunch of cocks, fists, and faces along the way.

Tory Lane is due in court for sentencing later this month. (Let’s just hope nobody breaks her two longstanding rules….)

Beatin’ on a Budget! with Exxxtasy

A few years ago, a friend of a friend was over at my place and noticed a stack of about ten DVD-R spindles sitting on top of a bookshelf. When I told him they contained digital copies of old and obscure Japanese, Korean, and Polish cinema titles, he couldn’t believe his ears. It wasn’t my questionable copyright infringement that disturbed him, it was the idea that I still kept content stored on physical discs. “Media should be streamed,” he told me, “DVDs just take up landfill space, degrade in quality over time, and are prone to damage.” I defended my burning habit: “But you can’t loan a stream to a friend or throw it into the trash if it’s a shitty movie.” Still, he maintained that streaming was the way to go, a position clearly held by the subject of this week’s Beating on a Budget, the streaming only Exxxtasy.

Now, don’t get me wrong. If you’re a particular kind of online porn viewer, the kind that keeps an archive of, say, Belladonna’s roughest gangbangs or the complete online works of Alina Li you won’t have much use for Exxxtasy, where downloading is prohibited. Those of you down with HD streams, on the other hand, might not have seen a site this appealing for a long, long time. Exxxtasy has only just begun its assault on your bandwidth, but it’s already a large site hosting tons of high-quality mainstream porn releases that, though not exclusive, are great to see pulled together in one place. Even though Exxxtasy was already dirt cheap to access, the site is celebrating its growth with a discount that should have all you porn-streamers clamoring to think of a totes sweet username. Originally $9.99-a-month, Exxxtasy, home to titles by Elegant Angel, Harmony Films, Pure Play Media, and Killergram, among others, can now be enjoyed for a ridiculously low $4.99 (valid for your first month’s access).

Although it’s by no means a perfect site, Exxxtasy overcomes its detriments (poor navigation tools, no downloading, no photos, no Roku channel… yet) and, quite simply, makes you an offer you can’t refuse: who can pass up 1,500 killer porno scenes starring A-listers galore for a measly $4.99? Hell, I was even granted complimentary access for review purposes and I still bought one month inside Exxxtasy. And here’s why…

THE MATH:
Exxxtasy currently holds a pretty dang substantial 1,547 scenes in its archives and charges $4.99 for one month’s access. This price point means that each individual scene hits a cost of only .3¢ – that’s one-third of a single cent! What more savings does a dirt-poor porn fan need?

Bargains like Exxxtasy don’t come along too often and especially not those granting you access to a hefty award-winning porn archive starring every pornstar worth a damn over the last decade, so (personal opinion alert) I’d pounce on this one if I were you.

Filth on the Canvas

dirty show 16 detroit

The 16th annual Dirty Show wrapped up in Detroit this week, closing out its week-long celebration of all things explicitly sexual, intensely erotic, and outright carnal. After being graced by the endlessly entertaining and enlightening John Waters and seeing performances from all kinds of (performance) troupes and (military-fetishizing) troops, Dirty Show 16’s doors closed for another year. The painters, sculptors, photographers, and printmakers exhibiting in the Dirty halls this year included notable International guests as well as national and local artists. Here we present a small selection of highlights from Dirty Show 16 and hopefully bring to your attention, dear reader, some new artists worth keeping an eye on.

Renowned horror filmmaker Clive Barker contributed this painting entitled The Wolf Behind the Flame that, although tucked away in a corner and easily missed, stopped everyone who passed it dead in their tracks. (Although perhaps Barker’s name was the reason.)

Cult favorite comic scribe Grant Morrison has said of Gail Potocki that she “conducts seances on canvas.” Bringing to Dirty Show 16 a piece directly recalling Adolf Ulrik Wertmuller’s masterpiece Leda and the Swan, Morrison’s interpretation is more than understandable.

Billy Norrby kept his model mostly clothed and instead exposed her not to our eyes but to the swirling energies of the cosmos. Sky Cathedral elevates transcendental self-love to the level of universal, even cosmic love.

Portrait of the Artist Entering her Blue Period by Scott G. Brooks placed his model before a glory hole in turn surrounded by messages scrawled into the wall, messages possibly addressing the kneeling, sticky-handed woman, her hair bundled into a pair of classical buns and adorned with (you guessed it) pearls.

By far the most whimsical piece we spotted on the exhibition walls (or, more accurately, in a cabinet) was Jason Levesque’s gastropod mollusk whose wanderings have left a trail of “grool” in its wake. Surely, that tasty-looking critter is the ultimate overqualified paperweight for the desk of yours truly.
