Christian XXX’s Transgressive Porn

christian xxxScour the comments section of any popular video site, concentrating your reading on movies and scenes starring the heavy-set, hairless, and smirking Christian XXX and you’ll find numerous viewers lamenting the man’s work and, sometimes, his very existence in the adult industry. It often seems like there’s no other male pornstar who raises the ire of porn lovers than the man formerly known as Maxx Diesel. Now, as Mr. XXX launches his very own transsexual hardcore site, Pure TS, we take a look at one of porn’s most devoted and inspired (yet oddly ridiculed) men.

Starting out in adult entertainment after a stint as a bouncer in Las Vegas, Christian found his entry point through director Chi Chi LaRue, who suggested performing in gay instead of straight productions, citing the higher pay. Joining Falcon Studios and shooting as Maxx Diesel, our guy soon became a popular performer and began to branch out into hetero work. Taken under Kink.com’s expansive black wing, Christian expanded his repertoire by letting strap-on-equipped women penetrate him and by shooting with the growing stable of Kink’s transsexual stars. Clearly, this flirtation with non-hetero sex and non-cis performers irritated some less open-minded (or perhaps repressed) – hence the oft-bandied insults the “haters” toss in his direction.

Christian’s latest venture should be heralded as a significant moment in mainstream porn, what with his recent Kink and Evil Angel successes increasing his popularity in the straight world and urging those viewers to expand their horizons, homo-reluctance be damned! Pure-TS takes viewers on a journey into transsexual hardcore guided by a veteran adult performer with plenty of straight work under his belt – a rarity in the usually isolated TS porn world.

“I wanted to create a site that would be something I’d enjoy visiting as a consumer,” Christian announced in the Pure-TS press release upon the site’s launch. “It had to be user friendly, intuitive, and feature top talent. That’s what Pure-TS is.” The site already boasts a strong initial offering featuring such award-winning trans-performers as AVN’s Transsexual Performer of the Year Venus Lux, Sarina Valentina, Robbi Racks, Mara Nova, and Kylie Maria, each of whom acts as versatile tops/bottoms for the equally adaptable Christian. Membership costs $24.99-a-month.

As transsexual people, performers or otherwise, see greater acceptance from the porn industry and Western society as a whole, it’s likely that Christian XXX is on the cutting edge of a thrilling new trend, hopefully one that brings real, substantial change to the attitudes that have previously relegated trans-performers to low-earning adult jobs often shot in unsafe or exploitative conditions, and cast aside from other adult performers.

Hardcore Gangbang: Under New (Female) Management

hardcore gangbang

Kink.com has undergone some major changes lately, from a huge network-wide redesign that’s still in beta, to some modifications to its lineup of websites. Now, a classic Kink site is attempting something new and refocusing its attention not only on the bodies of its featured females, but on their own fantasies and desires. Out with the abduction-based, totally male-dominated Hardcore Gangbang of old and in with… Midsummer Night’s Dream fantasies?

Under the direction of Maitresse Madeline (and, to some extent Lorelai Lee), Hardcore Gangbang will now conduct in-depth interviews with featured female performers so that the scenes they shoot won’t be some mindless back-alley thrashing by construction workers* but will instead be based on her own fantasies, desires, and interests. And, boy, we’re off to a racing start!

Anime fan Marica Hase has fantasied about being a magical sprite from her favorite show and, when surrounded by hunky fellas she can’t communicate with, she zaps them with her Marica Magica rays and – ZZAAAP! – she’s naked, bound in ropes, and being whipped by the now naked men, all their throbbing dicks angled at her. Then there’s that Midsummer Night’s Dream concept I mentioned earlier, this one brought to the table by Ella Nova. Putting together a script incorporating elves and an arranged marriage and a fairy godmother, Madeline hopes to help Ella fulfill her fantasy while giving audiences something truly unique, perhaps even bizarre.

The other important element of the new Hardcore Gangbang is the more frank and detailed conversations about the models desires that, in keeping with Kink’s habits, the audience is privy to. Where previous scenes tended to keep men as the aggressors, snatching an unsuspecting woman for their own repugnant needs, now it’s the women’s turn to be in charge. And, yes, that also means women are making the choices to live out faux-abduction fantasies (should they appear here later).

With issues of consent and the apparent endorsement by some porn outfits of a very murky kind of verbalized consent a hot topic on social media and in social commentary today, it’s great to see Kink take a more mature and responsible approach, an approach that also brings its viewers hotter, better, and more satisfying gangbangs than ever before.

Now, the one thing that’s really left to change is the term ‘gangbang’ itself.

*Unless that’s what she wants, of course.

Beating on a Budget! with DDF Network

ddf netowkr

Denys Defrancesco has, over more than twenty years, established himself as one of Europe’s preeminent pornographers and erotic artists. His online empire has grown too, with DDF Network now hosting 16 exclusive websites, each one dedicated to a slightly different take on Europorn. The sites tackle established genres like big-boobed women (DDF Busty), fellatio (Only Blowjob), and foot fetishism (Hot Legs & Feet), but also try out less defined areas of filmed sexual activity. Hands on Hardcore ramps up a typical sex scene until it’s seared into your memory forever. Hairy Twatter gives women who keep their pubic hair lush and lively a chance to grab the spotlight. Interactivity is the goal of DDF Adventures, and it’s helped along that path by DDF Live Sex, a parade of webcam performers. 1 By Day, House of Taboo, Euro Girls on Girls, Euro Teen Erotica, Sex Video Casting, Eve Angel Official, Cherry Jul, Sandy’s Fantasies, DDF VOD, and the aforementioned sites all combine to give DDF Network an enormous archive of stellar European porn that covers most pornographic bases, and does it in style.

Now discounted from its admittedly high price of $44.99 to only $33.99-a-month, a DDF Network membership should no longer be regarded as too expensive for the average porno fan.

THE MATH:
With a network archive holding 13,240 scenes across 16 websites, DDF Network could be viewed as now charging only $2.12-per-month for each of its sites; or, taken on a scene-by-scene basis, each update costs an absolute pittance, only .0025¢! Any way you slice it, that makes DDF Network far more affordable than it usually is. And, with such a huge treasure chest of carnal entertainment on hand, it’s now a network almost impossible to resist.

Lylith LaVey Takes Bang Bros to Court

lylith lavey evil angel

When news broke in mid-2012 that a male adult performer had altered a standard pre-shoot STI test to conceal his syphilis (a.k.a.: the STI that my mother claimed would send me roaring towards total insanity; aka: the most popular STI of the 15th Century), the industry rightfully clutched their collective genitals and said, “Shit, that guy’s an ass (and I hope I didn’t fuck him).” One person who did fuck Mr. Marcus, the man in question, was Lylith LaVey yet she has managed not only to use the legal system to hit back at Marcus himself (as she did in to the tune of $129,360) but also at the company she claims was neglectful in allowing Marcus to perform with a fudged test: our ol’ pals the Bang Bros.

Claiming her association with Mr. Marcus (now known as Mr. Syphilitic) caused her “emotional distress as well as castigation from others in her field,” LaVey (real name Heather DeAngelo) filed suit in early-2014 against Bang Bros, the production entity responsible for the scene in question and Mr. Marcus’ booking. LaVey’s case against the Bros didn’t make it to court and she was awarded an undisclosed sum of money via a settlement agreement with the company. After a 13-month-long lawsuit proceeding, it now appears that this little nightmare episode has resolved itself nice and tidily with the wounded compensated, the negligent hit where it hurts, and the truly guilty scrambling to reassemble his life and career.

Two questions remain, though: who knew you could successfully sue someone for almost (but not) infecting you with syphilis? And who on Earth would change their name from a perfectly porny real name like Heather DeAngelo?

Big Brazzers is Watching

brazzers house

Continually butting heads with detractors that claim it represents everything wrong with contemporary porn, Brazzers nevertheless has once again proven itself on the cutting edge of pornographic multimedia entertainment with the launch of reality porn series Brazzers House. Pitting ten top pornstar women not only against each other but against challenges physical, mental, and sexual to compete for a $10,000 grand prize.

Hosted by Brazzers staples and porn legends Nikki Benz and Keiran Lee, Brazzers House sees two teams led by the hosting pair sharing a house in Vegas and battling against foe and friend alike to claim pornstar supremacy. Joining Benz’s team are Alektra Blue, Dani Daniels, Gianna Nicole, Kayla Kayden, and Kaylani Lei, while Lee tries to guide Tory Lane, Phoenix Marie, Ava Addams, Missy Martinez, and Romi Rain to victory. The series will culminate in a live finale that will see the winning team members turn on each other and make a last ditch grab for the $10k.

Much like a mainstream television reality series, Brazzers House won’t stop once the official (and freely available) episode is over; behind-the-scenes and focused hardcore cuts will be available to active Brazzers members. Official episodes won’t satisfy those after naked debauchery, as the only graphic sex appears in each contestant’s intro. The debut episode is largely concerned with choosing teams and contestants finding somewhere to sleep (i.e.: setting up tests of friendship and loyalty that will no doubt pay off in a few episodes), but a preview for next week’s installment sees Ava Addams sneak Jessy Jones into her room to, well, you know…

Brazzers House airs weekly with additional footage made available to Brazzers members between episodes.
