Lansky Lures Back Lana

This week sees the home video release of yet another title from Tushy maestro Greg Lansky. Once again training his lush cinematic style on one outstanding performer, Lansky has managed to make the dreams of many porn lovers come true. He has lured an enormously popular performer back from early retirement and cemented her place in the annals of adult entertainment history with a five-scene run showcased on his Tushy website over the last four months. The performer: Lana Rhoades.

Lana Rhoades

Sliding into her role as 2016 porno “it” girl with a flirtatious softcore introduction at FTV Girls, the icy-blue-eyed 20-year-old from Chicago knows first only as Lana soon appeared staring into the POV camera of a hardcore Bang Bros scene, in classic black lingerie seducing former “it” boy James Deen at EroticaX, lending her incredible gaze and gorgeous face to Naughty America’s booming Virtual Reality series, and shooting her first scene with Lansky for his interracial super-success-story Blacked. The fans, Lansky and company, and Lana Rhoades herself all agreed it was a fantastic match.

Released tomorrow, March 24, on 2-disc DVD, ‘Lana’ comes as the culmination of a comeback made after a very brief retirement announced after mere months in the biz. It seems, fans, that money and Lansky lured her back and, though she’s spread her legs for other studios since returning, her most coveted porno coup, anal sex, has so far been only available to Lansky. Well, Lansky and her ‘Lana’ co-stars, that is. First to appear at Tushy.com was in-house anal-virginity-claimer Jean Val Jean with Rhoades’s second scene devoted to dominant redhead Penny Pax guiding the intimidating Manuel Ferrera where so many fans requested he be. Another encounter clamored for by viewers, an anally-focused lesbian pairing, saw reigning AVN Queen Adriana Chechik dive into Lana’s ass tongue-first. After dealing with Flash Brown back in her first month of hardcore performance, Rhoades then gave her rear to another of Lansky’s go-to guys, John Johnson. It could be said that every expanding experience up until this point had been in preparation for one monumental achievement in any pornstar’s career: her first double-penetration. Fitting, then, that Jean Val Jean returns in this last of the Lana-and-Lanksy collaborations (thus far) and brings everyone’s favorite gentleman cockmaster Mick Blue with him, pushing their fast rising co-star’s incredible body into unchartered territory.

Where, oh where, will Lana Rhoades, definitely not really retired and now posing for Playboy, Hustler, Penthouse along with her exclusive Virtual Reality work with Naughty America, go from here? (Clearly not to LanaRhoades.com.)

Anal Advice Assessed

Valentina Nappi

Since arriving on the international porn scene in 2011 and making waves in the US industry thanks to her relentless pursuit of personal pleasure, devotion to full gender equality, or fondness for shooting anal, DP, and gangbang scenes, Italian goddess Valentina Nappi has become one of the more salient commentators on the ins-and-outs of the porn world. So, when GQ published a slightly disturbing article entitled “How to Ask for Anal Sex” only to then be followed by a red-pen wielding Complex writer who pointed out its numerous flaws and falsehoods – “Women like to be surprised,” claims GQ, but that doesn’t extend to surprise buttsecks! – we turned to the esteemed Ms. Nappi for her advice, compared it to that of GQ and Complex, and tried to figure out which source was providing the real assistance to anally-inclined readers. Guess who came out on top?

GQ writer, “sex expert” and hostess, Sarah Jane Banahan suggests forgoing mentioning or requesting an anal attempt in advance, telling readers to “undress her slowly, kiss her, tell her quietly that you are going to penetrate her from behind.” Yeah, kinda like that disturbing scene from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo! Complex, for its part, wanted answers and turned to sexologist Bianca Laureano to get them. “Articles like this are dangerous because they give men the impression they may do something sexual with a partner without their consent.” Real anal sex, dear readers, is nothing like a porn scenario. You don’t start out with heavy petting, say “Turn over, baby,” then dive in cock-first. What you want to do is follow the advice of someone who’s been on the receiving end of many an butt-hungry penis in her time, Ms. Valentina Nappi.

In a blog post entitled How to Do Anal, Valentina lays it out as clearly as anyone anal adventurer could want. First, she details cleanliness protocols, discussing how to administer an enema and how pornstars stay clean on set. Some take psyllium whole husks for a fiber blast thrice daily before a shoot while others take Imodium (“not a healthy decision,” she says), but Valentina herself simply reduces fiber intake prior to a shoot to ensure she’s not leaking all over the set, the props, and her co-stars come the day of the shoot. Lubrication is next on Ms. Nappi’s checklist and, boy, is she through, a far cry from the lube-less anal attempts outlined in GQ. Size is also discussed, with Nappi insisting that every ass is different and can accommodate objects of different sizes. Crucially, she points out that the average length of the human rectum ranges from 10cm to 15cm and anything larger than that may end up smashing your colon, potentially resulting in Depends dependency.

Sure, GQ and even Complex’s guides to anal sex lacked the casual language Nappi uses, aiming for a more scientific-sounding approach to anal preparation, but really, at the end of the day which would you trust, the male equivalent of Cosmopolitan, a hip-hop-oriented youth culture magazine, or someone who takes cocks in their ass for a living and is comfortable, confident, and casually serious enough about the safety of her fans’ and fans’ lovers’ assholes that she’d even post a little infographic to help identify the (literal) shit you don’t wanna know about, as well as the (proverbial) shit you absolutely need to know before plunging your boner deep inside a surprisingly sensitive little passage.

Jessie Andrews First Annual Assfucking

Jessie Andrews

Jessie Andrews doesn’t do things the conventional way. After flitting around LA and entering porn (earning herself an AVN Best Actress Award in the process), Andrews took an odd left turn and launched her own jewelry line called Bagatiba, started booking DJing gigs, and appeared in the video for Borgore’s track ‘Decisions‘ with her new pal Miley Cyrus. So, when Andrews recently announced her upcoming anal debut, a slightly unusual approach was to be expected.

Maddy O’Reilly threw porn fans into a tizzy when ‘Maddy,’ the HardX feature holding her anal debut, was released after much pomp and circumstance, only to shoot anal scenes almost immediately after ‘Maddy’s’ release for Jules Jordan, Evil Angel, Devil’s Film, and Ass Factory. Ms. O’Reilly can now be seen having her butt banged on most major hardcore networks of note, but that won’t be the case for Jessie Andrews. Signing a unique deal with Girlfriends Films, Andrews is set to start in The Gardner and will be performing her first ever anal intercourse scene in the picture. The unique element of the deal? Andrews is contractually prevented from performing another anal scene until at least one year after The Gardner’s September 2014 release. Marveling at his coup, director B. Skow told AVN he thought it was the script, not the anal itself, that made Andrews so passionate about the project that she’d surrender her chance for a huge post-anal-debut payday. The script, inspired by the handful of long-term abduction, imprisonment, and sexual abuse cases recently uncovered in the US, continues Skow’s fascinating psychological porn dramas and was, the director felt, a good fit for the multi-talented starlet.

“When we finished the script I really wanted Jessie for the main role of the kidnapped girl,” Skow said. “It was also important to have the main character do anal because I really wanted to show how she was mentally tortured. Jessie had never done anal and I brought the project to her and she liked the idea of doing anal for the first time in a feature, so we made it happen.”

Jessie Andrews can be found on Twitter and will make her anal debut for Girlfriends Films ‘The Gardner’ in September.
