Katrina Jade: Superstar

Katrina Jade has inadvertently shown herself to be one of porn’s few serious breakout stars of the past three-to-five years by doing nothing but performing and apparently loving her job. With other heavily promoted starlets falling apart and drifting away without ever doing much of note, Katrina Jade has steadily been amassing an impressive body of work that will surely be putting all those initial anti-tat nay-sayers to shame. And, in celebration of this stage of her career, Katrina has shot an exclusive feature film for Evil Angel.

Director Evil Chris captures Katrina Jade at her most beautifully filthy in a four-scene epic that sees the heavily-inked SoCal slut take on men, women, and transexual pornstars in a test of her mettle. With the first two episodes of I am Katrina already online at Evil Angel and the next two due by the end of October, it’s a feast for Katrina’s fans as she joins Mark Wood and Francesca Le for some hot-wifing filth, a creative fuckfest with Kissa Sins overseen by John Stagliano, a feisty clash with Venus Lux and her thick cock, and, in the first scene of the film, a three-way with John Strong and Markus Dupree that leaves her mouth, pussy, and asshole well worn. Having shot her first anal scene for Evil Angel and signed an exclusive deal that gives her ass to no other studio for a full year, Katrina is most definitely committed to this company!

I am Katrina’s most unique feature isn’t its star’s excellent oral skills or onscreen mid-sex presence, it’s the documentary-style approach taken by the filmmakers. Bringing serious insight into her origins, her attitudes, and how much of her real self is seen in her work – hint: it’s a lot! – the treatment isn’t just loaded with revealing information, it’s perhaps more genuinely, deeply arousing than any other “intro” seen in porn in decades.

Joanna Angel Perverts Penthouse

Having previously appeared as no more than another cast member in 2007’s Glam Trash, Joanna Angel doesn’t have a particularly extensive history with Penthouse. She is, after all, best known for her fierce independence and outlier status while Penthouse has long been accepted as part of the porno mainstream. That’s all about to change, though, as the studio founded by Bob Guccione way back in 1965 has tapped the Burning Angel alt.porn maven to direct her first Penthouse feature – and it’s already proving a departure from her usual knowingly schlocky comedy-porn stylings.

Joanna Angel

What originally started as a licensing meeting about bringing Burning Angel content to Penthouse’s broadcast platforms soon turned a corner and had Angel proposing a film in which she pulled the already sexually declarative Penthouse Pets even further into sexual depravity – as is her wont and style. Drew Rosenfeld, Penthouse’s head of production, was taken with the idea enough that it soon started to form into a reality.

Corrupted by an Angel sees everyone’s favorite pink-and-black-haired heavily-tatted hardcore queen take on this year’s troop of Penthouse Pets (Riley Nixon, Gina Valentina, Ryan Keely, Jenna Sativa), leading them further astray as she pushes them to further carnal (and dramatic) greatness. Ditching her usual male leads for a more clearly female-led story, Angel calls Corrupted a “girl-power movie” that she finds “really beautiful.” Two major staples of any Angel production are nonetheless granted ample presence with music by Burning Angel dick-at-large and in-house poppy punk songwriter Small Hands and plenty of raucous girl/girl, boy/girl, and group sex (including mucho anal) to go around.

As Corrupted shows a more serious side of the usually goofy and ironically inclined director, it has proven something of a challenge for Angel. “This is a serious dramatic movie,” she told AVN. “It’s a touching story [with] some very sad moments and a lot of intensity – there’s even some crying parts.” Rosenfeld felt confident, however, that she had the skill and experience to pull it off. And the cast, of course, were perfectly fit for the job, Angel declaring them all “equally as slutty as one another,” herself included.

Corrupted by an Angel is due in late September from Penthouse (through its new distribution deal with Girlfriends Films).

Lovia & Lanksy Make Beautiful Music

Eva Lovia

Freed in late 2016 from the constraints of her exclusive contract with Digital Playground, Eva Lovia has been embracing many new opportunities befitting an AVN Female Performer of the Year nominee such as herself. A trio of scenes for Naughty America, a stunner with Hayley Reed for new Mofos venture Share My BF, and the launch of her own official members site, Fall in Lovia, which hosts exclusive updates, candid content, and some seriously sultry turns from co-star Shyla Jennings – all have cemented Lovia’s place near the top of the porno popularity heap. Now, one of the hottest directors working today has roped her into a showcase feature that’s guaranteed to sizzle on screens of any size.

After discussing her career goals in branding and performance with acclaimed director Greg Lansky, Lovia made clear she wanted not only shoot for Lansky’s Tushy, Blacked, and Vixen sites, but to also be the subject of his next showcase feature. A movie of firsts, ‘Eva’ sees Lovia performing in her first M/F anal scene, DP, an elusive F/F anal scene, first interracial anal encounter, and a threesome with, you guessed it, anal sex!

Committing her ass to Lansky’s cameras and crew was an easy decision, the star claims. “Greg very much puts the girl first and he really puts emphasis on beauty and having that cinematic quality. There is no rushing.” She also revealed something of a secret of Lansky’s success. Productions are schedule so that dialogue scenes and sexual intercourse are shot on different days, giving all kinds of performers and technicians with all kinds of attributes the chance to do their best work.

Fans will be able to see the results of Lansky and Lovia’s hotly anticipated collaboration in the forthcoming trailer (due July) to be followed by a succession of online updates culminating in the collected ‘Eva’ released in September. Those unable to wait can (and should) check out Lovia’s existing pair of Lanksy-shot scenes for Vixen, My Celebrity Crush and IG Models Behind the Scenes, as well as her excellent turn in Catching Up for Blacked.
