Auteur Miley In/Out of Film Fest

How does an upstart film festival in the already over-saturated market of New York City make a name for itself before ever flicking on a projector or dimming the theater lights? Schedule a screening of an erotic short film made by and starring one of pop music’s most controversial (and sexually provocative) young women, that’s how!

The first ever NYC Porn Film Festival, set to take place between February 27th and March 1st in Bushwick, Brooklyn, announced earlier this month that it would screen an four-and-a-half-minute bondage-themed short film shot by director Quentin Jones for Miley Cyrus’s 2014 Bangerz tour. The festival program had ‘Miley Cyrus: Tongue Tied’ schedule to screen in the same block as ‘Tila Tequila: Backdoored & Squirting’ but mere hours later, the listing for Tongue Tied had disappeared from the festival website.

In a statement, festival organizer Simon Leahy told Buzzfeed that they had removed all mention of Cyrus and her film from their website and promotional materials. “We hoped the film screened alongside great artists such as Amalia Ulman, Bradford Kessler, Richard Kern, Beth B, James Franco, Narcissister, would create a bigger discourse around art, sexuality, gender and pornography,” read a statement issued by the festival office. For her part, Miley’s camp insists neither she nor Jones were ever directly involved with the inaugural NYC Porn Film Festival, only that “Miley was proud to make a film with acclaimed filmmaker Quentin Jones.” (At least there’s still you, Tila Tequila.)

World’s Dirtiest Artists Hit Detroit

Dirty Show 16 Detroit

Talk about new centers of artistic creativity and thriving entrepreneurship these days has moved past the overcrowded and overpriced mainstays like New York and San Francisco and is now focused on less obvious hotbeds of young urban growth. One such city, and arguably the one struggling to defeat a horrible reputation, is Detroit, Michigan. Once the heart of America’s immense industrial might, the Motor City has, as everyone has heard again and again and again, fallen on hard times. And, while craft breweries, hipster tattoo parlors, “artisanal tea” growers, and intellectual-copyright-infringing art fairs now litter Detroit in a tribute to the bland commodification of former vices and artistic outlets, there is someone working hard to promote debauchery, degeneracy, and complete and utter filth. His name is Jerry Vile and he’s the creator of the annual Dirty Show.

Launching this weekend and running until February 21st, The Dirty Show is Detroit’s annual exhibition of erotic art and performance. Now one of the largest exhibitions of its kind in the world, The Dirty Show was created by Vile in 2000 as a small art showing and in 2005 opened its Call to Artists to anyone who dared submit work. The resulting thousands of submissions saw more than 250 artists from 20 countries exhibit work over four days. For this year’s 16th annual celebration of the filth and the furry see such artistic luminaries as Ron English, the late H.R. Giger, Clive Barker, and Saturno Butto along with prominent national and local talents like Glenn Barr, John John Jesse, Pamela Wilson, and Jason Levesque. And, to top it all off, Vile and Exhibition Director Genevive Zacconi have nabbed another sterling lineup of erotic performers of all kinds. Hell, they even got exhibiting artist, filmmaker, and hitchhiking enthusiast John Waters to agree to deliver an updated “Filthier and Dirtier” rendition of his acclaimed one-man show This Filthy World.

Sure, you’re not in Detroit (and, if you’re like most Americans, don’t plan to be) and can’t partake in all the ribald revelry of the Dirty Show 16, so why should you care? Well, dear reader, in a never-ending quest for further erotic inquiry, I am writing this blog from an unnamed airport terminal in the continental US, waiting to board a flight to Detroit and find out for myself the real dirt on The Dirty Show – and naturally I’ll be reporting back here with highlights, lowlights, and tantalizing tidbits galore. What, you think I’d let my close, personal friends and fellow porn enthusiasts miss out on all the fun?

In Court with Faith

When a former adult performer makes the headlines, it’s rarely for a positive or complimentary story. Last month’s story in UK newspaper The Telegraph concerning a former porn star is a perfect example: fraud, neglect, money laundering, hamburgers, family, and sunbathing all feature prominently. And the adult performer involved? Well, maybe you recognize her…

Faith UK pornstar

Lisa Bell, a 30-year-old West Yorkshire woman alternately known as super-busty porn babe Faith, was among a gang of miscreants accused of defrauding Audrey Hammond, a 92-year-old widow suffering from Parkinson’s Disease last month. Largely comprised of family members, the gang inserted themselves into Hammond’s life and home after Wendy Bell, Lisa’s mother, was dubiously hired as caretaker of Mrs. Hammond, the wealthy widow of a successful coal merchant. Eventually bringing in her daughter and other family members and friends to assist in providing home care for Mrs. Hammond, “Ma” Bell instead had her daughter aid her draining of the wealthy widow’s bank accounts. From grossly inflated wages of £85-an-hour to ‘ghost’ employees whose wages wound up in Bell’s accounts, carpets stained by cosmetics to caretakers sunbathing and napping by the pool during shifts, the list of offenses revealed during the trial at Bradford Crown Court in late January. The accused are even alleged to have run their ‘burger van’ business from Hammond’s house.

Facing sentencing this week, the Bells could be up for prison stints after being found guilty by jury, with the presiding judge telling Wendy Bell (who actually turned up for court in Uggs!) that jail time appeared “unavoidable” considering the amount of money involved. (Over a two-year period the group siphoned off more than £500,000 from Mrs. Hammond’s fortune.)

The woman formerly known as Faith was said to have turned up for a morning shift in a mini-skirt, high heels, and heavy makeup, told the qualified attending caretaker she was Hammond’s daughter before promptly taking it upon herself to sit down and relax. None of the fraudsters were registered or licensed caretakers, underwent criminal background checks, or asked for proof of qualifications. The younger Bell is, however, a fully qualified adult performer, having run and starred in adult sites In Bed with Faith and Faith Exposed, capture her sexual adventurism at its finest. If sentenced to time behind bars, we can only hope that “Faith” returns to her legally permissible profession upon release. (‘Cause, really, she was just starting to get good at it!)

 

Sextape Lesbians: DIY Done Right

sextapelesbians

Since the celebrity sextape has waned in popularity over the last 18 months, partially as a result worldwide guilt associated with The Fappening, the pseudo-authentic DIY or homemade sextape has undergone some fairly radical changes. Most obvious and troubling of all, the tendency of celebs to shoot obviously cultivated self-starring pornography, sell distribution rights to an established adult entertainment group, then sit back and proclaim themselves a victim of theft or malicious cyber-snooping. Most recently, though, we’ve seen sextapes take an even stranger turn, albeit one that’s resulting in far more accomplished and appealing movies.

At Sextape Lesbians, porn’s most stunning newcomers are making sextapes, but not like those seen in Manuel Ferrara’s Raw or Dana Vespoli’s Real Sex Diary over at Evil Angel, where established pornstars shoot themselves (as themselves) enjoying off-set sex. Sextape Lesbians’ producers made a few very good decisions early on: cast young up-and-comers, utilize new camera technology like smart phones and GoPros, have the girls shoot their own scenes, and present each scenario as a mix of reality and fantasy. Shooting scenes in sunny backyards, by the poolside, in luxurious hotel bathrooms, and the beds of the boyfriends and husbands they’re suddenly no longer interested in, Sextape Lesbians sees erotically-charged and believably natural kissing, fondling, caressing, and fucking that’s by equal measure tenderly romantic and fiercely carnal.

And the best part of the sextape trend shuffling over to pornstar productions? At least these people can fuck!

 

Beatin’ on a Budget! with WTF Pass

wtf pass

European hardcore networks litter the Internet like drive-through photomats once littered the parking lots of North American strip malls, but how do you discern the worth of one from the other? How do you filter out the untranslated, unintelligible drivel pouring out of many Eastern European states to leave only the highest quality Euro-smut? Why, by heeding the advice of your go-to porn advisor, Mr. Pink, of course! And there’s one particular Euro-hardcore network that’s proven quite popular around the office, a network with some peculiar sexual habits and a giant-cocked Panda: WTF Pass.

Home to eleven sites – College Fuck Parties, Pickup Fuck, Hard Fuck Girls, Porn Weekends, Dolls Porn, Public Sex Adventures, HD Massage Porn, Panda Fuck, The Art Porn, and Meet, Suck & Fuck – WTF Pass may indeed leave the average porn viewer muttering “What the fuuuuck?”, erection-in-hand as they stare at a twelve-person orgy in the middle of a forest, extreme double-penetrations, on-bus blowjobs, and, yes, even sex with a guy in a strap-on-equipped Panda costume. There’s no doubt WTF Pass presents a wide and quite weird variety of hardcore thrills, but is it plentiful enough to warrant your patronage? With close to 2000 scenes online, I dare say it is, but let’s find out for sure.

THE MATH:
WTF Pass usually charges its members $34.95-a-month for access privileges, but with Mr. Pink on the case, and a discount on the cards for readers, this adventurous Europorn network is now more affordable than ever: only $19.95-a-month! Just how does that work out on a scene-by-scene basis? Let’s the the calculator and muster up some numbers! WTF Pass’s eleven networked websites each come out to a cost of just $1.80-a-month each, a bargain by anyone’s standards. The 1865 scenes currently on offer (including both video and photo content) each come to barely more than one cent each, 1.07¢ to be exact. One cent for a 50-minute outdoor six-girl, four-guy orgy, a Panda-blowing teen slut, or tender and romantic ass-fucking on a four-poster bed.

It’s rare to find such a boldly debaucherous Euro network offering such affordable memberships, so be sure to give WTF Pass some serious consideration while the bargain-priced membership is still available. (But be sure to check out our fully detailed WTF Pass website reviews right here at Mr. Pink’s before you do!)
