After years of following the orders of others, two of porn’s most esteemed performers are on the verge of becoming noted directors. Reigning AVN Female Performer of the Year Asa Akira and crossover man of the hour, James Deen, are headed to Elegant Angel and Evil Angel respectively to push their careers into a whole new realm.
After winning the 2013 AVN Award for Female Performer of the Year and co-hosting the illustrious gala event, it seemed Asa Akira had it all. It is now clearly, however, that she wasn’t about to rest on her prestigious laurels. Having shot three movies with Elegant Angel for the Asa Akira is Insatiable series, choosing to direct for the same company that pushed her performing to bold new heights was an easy decision. Elegant Angel owner, Patrick Collins calls Akira “the real deal” and cites her authenticity and daring as just two of the reasons she’ll be a great director. Akira’s first effort behind the camera will focus on her personal favorite pornographic niche, the gangbang, and follow the premise set by the five earlier volumes of Elegant Angel’s Gangbanged series: two women each taking on seven men in a pair of no-holes-barred carnal clusterfucks that, with Asa at the helm, are sure to make for powerful viewing.
James Deen, 2013’s XBIZ and AVN Male Performer of the Year and the most promising crossover performer in recent memory, has already directed nearly a dozen features for Burning Angel and his own James Deen Productions, but now he steps into a new phase of his directing career, joining the likes of Belladonna, Manuel Ferrara, Rocco Siffredi, and John Stagliano as an Evil Angel director. Evil Angel General Manager Christian Mann noted that Deen wasn’t hired for his current surge in mainstream popularity but for simply making movies that appeal to EA chief Stagliano’s “innate sense of what makes good smut”, saying “I’m happy to say James Deen’s directorial efforts have met that standard.”
Deen’s Evil Angel debut, James Deen Loves Butts stars Dana DeArmond, Jessie Rogers, and Mason Moore (as well as Deen himself) and is set for a July release. Akira’s directorial debut, the sixth installment of Elegant Angel’s infamous Gangbanged series, is set to begin photography very soon with a release date yet to be announced.
If you really love a particular band, you can advertise that fact with a t-shirt. If you really love Nike’s shoes, you can brand yourself with a chest-mounted tick motif and show the world how you don’t think and instead “Just Do It”. Hell, if you’re immensely proud of the fact that you partake in the United States democratic process, you can even promote the act of voting with an “I Voted” sticker on election day. But what do you do if you want to tell the world how much you enjoy the work of a particular pornography studio? If studio in question is Evil Angel, well, now there’s a solution.
Preparing to officially launch in the near future, Evil Angel’s latest endeavor, a clothing line sporting artwork designed by a longtime fan, may not yet be ready for public purchases but after giving fans and industry bodies a sneak peek at the recent International Lingerie Show, which took place at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on April 8-10. The artist, Ricky Carralero, came to Evil Angel by submitting original artworks for publication in EA head honcho John Stagliano’s Buttman Magazine. That artwork later ended up on some t-shirts and impressed Stagliano enough to warrant launching a new venture for his massively successful Evil Angel brand. The clothing line, which includes t-shirts for men and women, and tank tops, leggings, and camel-toe panties for women, each item boasting Carralero’s tattoo-style paintings, will be officially unleashed on consumers in a few months time, once Stagliano and crew “see what works and what doesn’t”.
Only a few weeks after the announcement of her recent addition to Evil Angel’s roster of directorial talent, one of San Francisco’s numerous notable kinksters, Dana Vespoli, announces the release of Lesbian Analingus, her newest directorial effort. Surprisingly, though, this ass-munching, rim-jobbing all-girl sapph-fest is being released not by Evil Angel, but by Sweetheart Video and Mile High Media.
Starring Vespoli herself and a cast of some of porn’s most delectable women – Gracie Glam, Sinn Sage, Charley Chase, Phoenix Marie, Annika Albrite, Sandy B, and Liza Del Sierra – Lesbian Analingus serves up the first dedicated orally inclined ass-play release from Mile High’s award-winning all-lesbian Sweetheart Video. Employing fingers, toys, puckered lips, tongues and plenty of saliva, the scenes see Charley and Gracie, Annika and Sandy, Sinn and Liza, follow Dana and Phoenix’s lead and indulging in tongue lashings their fans both male and female won’t soon forget.
You can now preview all four Vespoli-directed Lesbian Analingus scenes at Sweetheart Video.
After the September release of their Anal Hazing Crew feature confirmed their strong association with Evil Angel and Gamma Entertainment, performers, directors, and spouses Mark Wood and Francesca Le now celebrate another milestone in their rapidly ascending careers: their very own website.
LeWood is now online and takes a multi-handed approach to hardcore, featuring work directed by and often starring either Francesca Le, Mark Wood, or both. Focusing on hard lesbian scenes, anal sex, MILF-fucking, and plenty more, LeWood’s vignette-style DVD releases and their digitally distributed equivalents are a perfect fit for Evil Angel’s growing ranks of master directors. “After many years, we finally have another way to reach our fans,” Wood said, his wife adding that the site would be an intimate, if not exactly comforting, look inside their sex lives professional and otherwise. “Everybody will get to see all the naughty stuff that goes on behind closed doors at Casa de LeWood. We look forward to bringing you even filthier content from the freakiest real-life couple in porn.”
She’s not wrong there, folks! Few porn couples have lasted as long as LeWood or have had as substantial success as a unit, with only Audrey Hollander and Otto Bauer as genuine competition. Tera Patrick and Evan “Spyder Jonez” Seinfeld managed to keep their professional relationship going long after their personal one ended in divorce, Kobe Tai and Mark Davis’s marriage didn’t survive the often tumultuous porn life, and after divorcing, Nacho Vidal and Belladonna kept their professional work separate, too. LeWood, however, seems to be going from strength to strength, even using a Brangelina, Kimye-style portmanteu as their professional name, the ultimate sign of celebrity relationship stability!
LeWood is now online and updating daily. Look for a full porn review coming soon from Mr. Pink’s!
One of the most impressive new porn directors of late has undoubtedly been Bobbi Starr. After tackling such established niches as POV and lesbian sex (Vicarious: So Close You Can Taste It), straight gangbangs (Bobbi Loves Boys), female masturbation (One), aggressive and rough sex (Shut Up and Fuck), and personal journeys through foot fetishism, voyeurism, and group sex (her incredible directorial debut Bobbi’s World), the Northern Californian fetish queen takes on political satire and, well, everything she’s done before (and lots more) in Evil Angel’s forthcoming Occupy My Ass.
Due to hit retail outlets on January 23rd and recently landing on Evil Angel’s official website as a streaming-only exclusive, Occupy My Ass sees Ms. Starr and her fellow performers, Kimberly Kane, Aiden Starr, Dana DeArmond, Kelly Divine, and Sarah Shevon, among others, spread their holiest of holes for some deeply penetrating anal insertions. Sticking all manner of phalluses up the back passage, from fingers, toes, and Mark Wood’s dick to enormous strap-ons, dildos, and butt plugs that’d make Audrey Hollander wince. Not only does Occupy My Ass declare itself representative of “The 99%” and profess to “stand in solidarity” with each of its anally-inclined stars, but it also means the debut of something many porn fans have been hoping to see for some time: Lily LaBeau’s boy/girl anal debut. Throw in another four scenes of utter anal debuachery and you’re looking at an adult DVD so blisteringly, intimately fucking fantastic it’ melt the coldest superrich heart.
Unfortunately, Occupy My Ass does not feature any of the women from that viral Hot Chicks of Wall Street we featured a while back. Oh well. I suppose the gaping assholes of porn’s hottest supersluts will have to do!
