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.

When Pornstars Collide: Lisa Ann vs Nikki Benz

Grab your popcorn, folks, ’cause two of porn’s most larger-than-life women are embroiled in a conflict that’s seen more than its share of catty insults, accusations of prostitution, holier-than-thou pontificating, and allusions to organized crime syndicates. What’s more, the two pornstar legends currently duking it out on social media aren’t about to let their Tweets do all the talking. Now Johnny Law is involved! But let’s rewind…

Lisa Ann vs Nikki Benz

Although now retired from active performing, an apparently disgusted Lisa Ann took to Twitter to admonish fellow performer Nikki Benz, apparently for nothing more than enjoying her birthday in Dubai. The implication from Lisa’s post was that Benz wasn’t simply sightseeing or visiting friends, but doing a little escorting on the side (an increasingly common practice for known pornstars). Considering the other contentious tales of pornstars hooking in the UAE have largely revolved around broken contracts and cancelled appearances, Lisa Ann is no longer an active participant in the porn world, instead getting her fantasy football career in order while doing the odd feature dance for the fans. Why then should she give a shit if Nikki’s off sucking some dicks (or not) in Dubai?

lisa ann tweets

After a period of inactivity, the feud heated up this week with a restraining order granted in Los Angeles for the protection of one Lisa Ann against one Nikki Benz. In her claims to police, Lisa accuses Nikki of attacking her, unprovoked, on Twitter and inciting her 700,000 fans to do the same. Alleging Benz “encouraged and rewarded” those followers who made threats to her business and safety, Lisa appears to be attempting to color Benz as a dangerous figure whose presence at industry events would be disruptive to her own safety. Considering Benz proposed meeting her retired nemesis in the boxing ring to resolve things, it’s somewhat, maybe slightly understandable that the threat of violence might seem real. One claim, however, stretches even the loosest boundaries of truth: Lisa claims Benz’s online attacks made her too afraid to attend this year’s AVN Awards ceremony to receive her Lifetime Achievement Award. The only problems with that claim is that, A) Lisa Ann did attend this year’s AVNs and, B) she was presented with no such award, having already been inducted into the AVN Hall of Fame in 2009. In fact, here she is with her date (no, not like an escort), a contest winner, incredulous at the bravery of her own attendance in spite of Benz’s alleged harassment:

And here she is attending the 2015 XBIZ Awards, an event also attended by Benz, who earned cheers and laughter for her Ann-directed jibes tossed casually from the stage. Funny, Lisa Ann doesn’t look very scared.

Boxing bout or not, it seems clear that the winner of this particular pornstar brouhaha (thus far, at least) is Ms. Benz. After all, she don’t need no damn police to do her dirty work for her and she don’t appear to start no shit with no bitches who don’t start shit with her. Benz also won XBIZ’s Crossover Star of the Year award, further cementing the very real professional, not personal, threat to Lisa Ann: Retired (But Still Bitter) Pornstar™.
