The Sadist is Present

Top Grl

There are porn parodies and then there are porn movies that use existing cultural artifacts to create their own take on a popular subject. Most porn parodies use television or movies or comic books or public sex scandals as the basis of their hardcore, but Intersec Interactive has significantly different tastes than most pornography studios and has therefore opted to tackle a rather unusual subject for one of Top Grl’s challenging femdom sessions: Serbian artist Marina Abramović’s landmark 736-hour-and-30-minute performance piece, The Artist is Present.

Devised and performed by Abramović for MOMA’s 2010 retrospective of her work, The Artist is Present saw a still and silent Abramović seated before gallery patrons, many of whom were moved to tears by nothing but the artist’s returned gaze. This might seem an odd sort of artwork to influence porn production, but Intersec Interactive is an odd sort of company. One of Kink.com’s few genuine competitors, Intersec has unleashed via Top Grl a scene entitled The Sadist is Present that, although using an unchanging endurance performance piece as its inspiration, thankfully offers a bit more activity than Abramović’s now legendary work.

Mona Wales has taken a seat, naked except for tall heels, when in walks Bonnie Day. Stunned, Bonnie receives her command: Make yourself comfortable. Ordered to strip in front of the embodiment of the perfect female figure, Bonnie follows each subsequent instruction to the letter, whether it’s kneeling in a pile of stiff rice grains, flogging herself with a cat o’ nine tails, and even peeling an onion only to use it as a masturbatory device.

This is some weird shit, y’all, and it’s highly entertaining even though the rest of the scene takes place not in a gallery space but in a fairly typical bondage rack in some dank basement cum dungeon somewhere. More sadistic physical abuse is on the cards, only it uses the same tropes and tools found in most hardcore BDSM work. Clearly, then, art and porn are becoming increasingly intertwined (as also evidenced by the rise of publicly advertised and accessible erotic art shows and film festivals) but still have some way to go. For all the efforts of Mona Wales, Bonnie Day, and the Top Grl and Intersec teams, they still fall short of the epic commitment required by Abramović. But, hey, it’s a swell start!

“Stuffed” at Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is over, more and less, and if you’re lucky, you’ve already snagged some deals online and can leave your family and friends to maul each other over barely discounted television sets while you relax at home, preferably with a cold one, something fiery, and some porn-infused leftover gorging. And what’s the best Thanksgiving leftover of all?

Adriana Chechik is no stranger to stuffing. In fact, judging by how frequently she seems to find herself stuffed full of porn-stud man-meat, I’d say she quite likes it. After making her initial mark at Evil Angel and gradually working her way up to some astounding Kink work and solid contributions to HardX’s amazing first year, it’s fair to elevate Chechik to the ranks of Belladonna, Ava Devine, and Asa Akira, women who’ll take on any number of cocks, stuffing them as fully as they can inside their awesomely elastic orifices, and do it all in the name of a solid paycheck, a shared experience, and a blissful orgasm or fifteen.

Oh, and the latest porn queen to venture into double-anal territory over at HardX (one of the calling cards of a true stuffing enthusiast) is London Keyes and for that, my friends, we should all be exceedingly thankful. Enjoy your stuffing, pals!

 

Kink Encroaches on Mainstream

Kink

Notorious San Francisco-based fetish porn studio, Kink.com, has been garnering much attention over the last few years, attention both wanted and unwanted, from fans and critics alike. Whether it’s HIV transmission allegedly occurring on set, a performer bemoaning what turned out to be a pretty tough scene, or accusations of on-set assault and misconduct, the conversations about Kink have been heated for some time now, so much so that many have suggested the company leave its home in the San Francisco Armory and shut-up shop for good. Kink founder and CEO, Peter Acworth agrees that something needs to change, but he and his crew aren’t going anywhere anytime soon; they’re just “rebranding” their BDSM empire as that most loathsome of commercial entities the “lifestyle” brand.

Alongside its main endeavor, shooting the most bristling and brazen hardcore BDSM porn on the planet, Kink has extended its reach into other areas with its already popular Armory studio tours, fetish workshops and classes, and The Armory Club, a bar and cocktail lounge launched in late 2012. Acworth says Kink has seen “tremendous growth” in such extracurricular arms of his enterprise, growth that he hopes will continue as Kink drops two and rebrands another pair of its more outrageous websites in favor of refocusing attention on online social interactivity, retail sales, community events, and a more conventionally palatable take on hardcore BDSM.

So, as we bid our goodbyes to Public Disgrace and Bound in Public and best wishes for the redevelopment of Hardcore Gangbangs and Fantasy Gangbangs (and keep our hopes up for a continued reign of utter debauchery), why not enjoy a few of Kink’s most recent and very much intense works, perhaps Lyla Storm’s Snow White gangbang or maybe some Dungeon Sex or some electrified labia majora. After all, you never know when Kink will ditch such havens of sexual degeneracy in favor of keychains, branded martini glasses, and a roaring profit margin.
