As summer winds down and we scan our environs in vain, searching for a glimpse of gorgeous bikini-clad booty one last time before the winter chill settles in, Mr. Pink’s ogles a trio a awesome sites this week, all of them part of the illustrious Nubiles empire. Bad Teens Punished, Step Siblings Caught, and the Nubiles Porn network itself all received solid new assessments from yours truly, their HD videos and elaborate concepts just as thrilling as ever. On the blog, we’re highlighting two impressive pornstars currently dealing with visa, immigration, and work permit issues in the USA, issues which may keep them from your favorites sites and studios. Next week, we’ll be training our attention on a new VR venture and the site that started it all for this week’s picks, Nubiles.net! Until then, folks, keep fappin’!
Ah, politics and porn, they make strange but surprisingly natural bedfellows. The world of explicit sexual entertainment has mixed with the Washington elite in an assortment of sordid ways. When it comes to immigration – one of our most hotly debated current political concerns – there’s two adult performers that immediately spring to mind.
Long Island-based cam performer, softcore model, live dancer, pornstar, and activist Maya Morena may have been granted temporary legal residence in the USA through the DACA program but that doesn’t exactly make it easy to keep her porn career going. After well received scenes for studios glorious (Exotic4K), filthy (Gloryhole Secrets, Gangbang Creampie), and erotically sophisticated (Kelly Madison), the Honduran-born performer seemed on the verge of a major breakthrough. Writing eloquently about the difficulties she and other DACA recipients, sex workers or otherwise, face finding work and solidifying a future, Morena is persistent and inspired in her desire to remind folks that you can’t fuck an exotic foreign chick if she’s not allowed in your country.
Some overly eager observers may start shouting racism at the first notice of Ms. Morena’s Central-American heritage and not-exactly-lilywhite skin tone but she’s far from the only adult performer to struggle with US immigration authorities. Polish pornstar and winner of XBIZ and AVN Awards for Female Foreign Performer of the Year (2015 and 16, respectively), Misha Cross, was denied reentry into the USA at Houston airport, detained and interrogated by immigration officials for 48 hours before being shuttled back to Poland and barred from future US entry. Turning some typical authoritarian bullshit into boner-inducing entertainment, the marvelous Ms. Cross makes her directorial debut for Evil Angel this month, releasing Misha in Exile, a star showcase inspired by her banishment. Along with regular co-star Samantha Bentley (who also composed the musical score), Cross takes to the ocean for a movie she hopes will be both “beautiful and technically the highest quality possible.”
Misha in Exile is available to purchase or stream today from Evil Angel. Maya Morena continues to fight for her right to fuck on film in the land of opportunity.
Last night, Thursday September 6th, saw the staging of the first ever PornHub Awards. Rumors of Kanye West’s creative involvement started bubbling a few weeks ago and were confirmed just last night as the inaugural event kicked off with an online audience of 2D and VR viewers taking in Yeezy’s curated, custom designed spectacular. Along with the obvious pop-culture coup of snagging Mr. West – arguably the biggest rapper alive and husband of the most successful unintentional pornstar of all time – the PornHub Awards also presented an intriguing mix of nominees both semi-pro and devoted careerists, those shooting their own smut for self-distribution through the tube giant and those stepping foot onto Brazzers and Bang Bros sets.
Kanye’s contributions weren’t limited to a performance – though he did join Lil Pump on stage to perform ‘I Love It’, a track now revealed to be getting a video from Spike Jonze. West also designed the phallic statuettes that constituted the physical PornHub Award trophy for this year, outfitted all presenters with his own YEEZY clothing line, and had Richard Kern, trailblazing photographer of naked chicks, produce interstitial images for the program.
Fans of winning performers Abella Danger, Mia Malkova, Lena Paul, and Kendra Sunderland willing to drop a cool $75 on a YEEZY shirt sporting the artist’s rendition of porn’s “Nicest Tits” or “Hottest Female Ass” – items that will no doubt become instant must-haves for the hippest porno fans around. Award categories not given their own Ye-designed shirt included Top VR, Cosplay, POV, and Verified Amateur Performers, Instagrammer of the Year, Most Popular Parody Channel, and a wealth of prizes to be earned by LGBTQ performers finally getting their just deserts.
With Vanity Fair gaining an exclusive look inside the slick inaugural affair and media outlets worldwide going nuts over Ye’s involvement, fans, who anxiously await the full list of PornHub Award winners, can only wonder who and what will be making next year’s event an equally amazing affair.
