Starring Valentina Nappi

Some pornstars make their debut and are soon heralded as the next big thing, given their own feature release (or a series!), and shuffled straight to the AVNs winners’ podium before quitting the sex trade for an ill-advised attempt at mainstream stardom. Others, however, quietly make their first forays into porn guided by nothing but their quest for interesting, exciting sex. These performers tend to start out strong and gradually refine their skills until it’s the lack of acclaim becomes maddening to their growing legion of fans. One of these intrepid performers is Valentina Nappi.

Born in the Italian town of Scafati, near Naples, in 1990, Ms. Nappi carries a strong presence for her diminutive 5’3″ frame. From her first scenes for Harmony Films, Valentina showed her willingness to dive headfirst into her new career, shooting a MMMF gangbang, a FFM threesome with Anissa Kate, and a furious DP in just over a year. Harmony Films is also where we first find the lusciously curvy brunette placed with Brit babe Samantha Bentley and given a cock to share, a combination that proves volcanic both here, at Fake Agent UK, and for director Marc Dorcel. Some shoots for Culioneros introduced Valentina to a wider audience, but it was her breakthrough work with Rocco Siffredi that really had folks paying attention to this boldly self-assured new Italian star. Teaming up with the Italian Stallion and Mona Lee in Rocco’s Abbondanza, Valentina proves herself such a worthy partner to the thick-dicked legend she returns for more in Rocco’s Bitches in Uniform #02 and Rocco’s World Feet Obsession. Siffredi also shared a very early encounter with Ms. Nappi in XXX Fucktory – The Auditions. Shot POV, this gives us the most intimate and naturalistic chance to appreciate Valentina than any other.

Somehow, I imagine Valentina’s stint at art school and interest in philosophy gave her a different approach to a porn career than most of her co-stars’. There aren’t many women in adult who’ll shoot very light masturbation scenes for Twistys, an interracial girl-on-guy rimming and fellatio scene for Blacked, and a classily-styled high-end-escorting fantasy for Tonight’s Girlfriend all in the space of a few months. Rarer still is the performer who can nail each one, outperforming even seasoned studs used to being rendered incoherent by talented newcomers. (In an Italian television interview, she even maintained that using her body to make money in porn was no different to using a builder using his body to make money in construction.) Now, Ms. Nappi’s and her incredible skills will be the sole focal point of a feature release from PopPorn, Valentina’s Day.

Valentina's DaySlated for a July 31st release, Valentina’s Day brings fans four hardcore scenes all starring their favorite Italian goddess, including interracial sex, POV fellatio, dildo-sharing, and appearances by Maddy O’Reilly, Isiah Maxwell, Ramon Nomar, and Will Powers under the direction of Nate Liquor (Zero Tolerance, WoodRocket). Running about two hours and now available for pre-order at the discounted price of $17.00, there’s a good chance Valentina’s Day is the adult movie you’ve been hoping and praying for. And, if not, it will be once you’ve born witness to the remarkably down-to-Earth professional sexual proclivities of the truly breathtaking Ms. Valentina Nappi.

Big Winners, Big Women

biggie

The Biggie Awards, adult entertainment’s annual celebration of all things BBW (the women, the movies, the directors, the waistlines) went off without a hitch in Las Vegas this weekend past and, as expected, a new lineup of remarkable talents were decreed the best in the biz by their peers and fans. Before we run through some of those taking home Biggies this year, though, be sure to jump back a few weeks and read Mr. Pink’s preview of the event.

(Now, I really must make a minor complaint at this point: it appears BBWCon and the Biggie Awards crews are recovering from their events, as suggested by their lifeless social media profiles, the absence of convention floor footage on YouTube, and the minimal coverage given to the toast of the performing BBW community. Want greater recognition? Insist upon it!)

As reported by AVN, Odette Delacroix, this year’s winner of Best Fetish/Speciality site for PetiteVsPlump.com and, strangely enough, quite a thin woman. Thanking the BBW community for opening their arms to a woman whose body type would normally exclude her from such an organization, Delacroix encapsulated what makes the BBW side of the adult industry so damn worth supporting: open-mindedness and community.

Now, onto some winners…

Tristan Taormino’s Guide to Pegging

pegging lola foxx

Tristan Taormino should be a name familiar to many of you – or at least to those of you into fellatio training, locating the G-spot, or rough sex – and who better to turn to the in the days after International Strap-On Week in search of advice to help you use your new device. Oh, what? You didn’t indulge and finally let your lady assume the dominant position in your bedroom? Well, here’s what lies in store for those already set on engaging in some pegging, courtesy of one of our favorite sexologists.

Tristan Taormino's Guide to Anal Pleasure for Men

The first key to a good, smooth introduction to pegging, says Taormino’s Good Vibrations blog, is communication. Shut off your iPhone, drop the remote, and start discussing everything involved in your decision to try pegging. Assuming it’s a new experience, you’ll have some fear or trepidation that be coaxed away by declaring those worries and discussing them openly. You’ll know she knows you’re concerned about blah-blah, and she’ll be extra careful when blah-blahing.

Some more practical concerns apply, too, of course, one of which contradicts an age-old classic rule of intercourse: “Spit is not lube!” (And here we thought “If it gets you wet, it’s a sure bet!”) Saliva, according to our anal-play educator, does not cut it when it comes to the rear passage. Using a thick, water-based lube is preferred. And use a lot. (Like, really a lot.) One of the primary concerns of those intrigued but not sold on male anal play is what some call “The Ick Factor.” Yes, that’s where you shed your bodily waste, so you’d wanna get well and truly clean before letting anyone venture back there, wouldn’t you? Take a bath and polish up or devote yourself to an enema. Either way, some “ick” may remain so you might want to have your partner wear a glove, for smoothness of digital insertion as well as sanitation. It’s important to warm up and stretch before getting deep into it, so let’s hope she has nimble fingers.

Finding a harness and dildo that fits and suits your style is also hugely important, of course, and Good Vibrations has, of course, provided a fucking fantastic text-and-video guide to finding the right equipment for you, right here. Then it’s just a matter of putting all your knowledge, conversations, and experiments into play. Find the right speed and angle for your activity, create some great visual pathways with plenty of eye contact, let your free hand/s wander or head for their favorite spot, and, most importantly of all, feel good and enjoy yourself.

Now, if you need a more visual guide to pegging, Tristan Taormino’s Guide to Anal Pleasure for Men (with Penny Flame, Jandi Lin, Annie Cruz, Christian XXX) is available from Vivid-Ed and can also be viewed online at Videobox.

Mr. Pink’s also suggests Evil Angel for pegging videos.
