Misti Dawn’s Vegas Wedding

Misti DawnRedheaded alt.porn goddess and Burning Angel’s reigning super-nerd, Misti Dawn, is one of Joanna Angel and Co.’s breakout stars. Well, she was until she found herself in something of a predicament. As she detailed recently on her blog, Meow Misti Dawn, the native Indianan celebrated her continued success in porn by trading vows and marrying fellow adult performer, Michael Vegas, in, well, Las Vegas, of course. One of the hottest young alt.pornstars in the business getting hitched to a well-endowed gentleman of similar professional pursuits – that, my friends, is what we call a porno dream come true.

Sharing their physical selves with others for money is one thing, but Misti and Michael shared so much more. After calls from fans for the tattooed redhead to give up her rear passage, Misti followed her anal debut (with James Deen in Burning Angel’s LA Pink) with a few interracial scenes in which she spread her lilywhite cheeks for dicks that’d usually have your average midwestern gamer-girl quaking in her Chuck Taylors. Mr. and Mrs. Vegas also spread their love online, both by appearing in scenes together and hosting blogs, podcasts, and their private sexual adventures with an audience that, truth be told, probably only cared because Misti is one of the more relatable and charming pornstars, “alt” or otherwise, of recent years.

As things so frequently seem to, though, Misti’s moment of porn industry bliss didn’t last long.

The Further Adventures of James Deen

James DeenIn all my years as a sexually active heterosexual male, I have only twice occasioned to obtain biblical knowledge of a partner who held more than a vague curiosity in the pornographic arts. One of these women had numerous sexual problems – anorgasmia, bouts of frigidity, “Daddy issues”, and compulsive self-degradation – while the other was the polar opposite. Able to orgasm almost at will, this woman – we’ll call her Miss. B – enjoyed watching porn by herself, with friends, with lovers, and pretty much whenever she was mildly bored and slightly horny. I discovered this not by her asking me to watch porn with her, but because of a flippant remark she made regarding my alleged resemblance to her favorite pornstar, Mr. James Deen.

Widely regarded as one of the most likable dudes in porn, James Deen, a 27-year-old native of Pasadena, has been lighting up the skin-filled screen for nearly eight years, appearing in a reported 2000 films. In that time he has not only filled the mouths, pussies, and assholes of porn’s most popular women, but charmed his way into the hearts of a legion of female fans. So famously endearing, Deen even attracted the attention of ABC News, supposedly due to the abundance of these female fans.

As reported by Nightline’s Cecilia Vega, Deen remains unaware of why he appeals to so many young women, supposing that it might be his so-called “everyday” looks and personalities. Whatever the reason, his appeal has led to an AVN Award for Male Performer of the Year (which he won at 23, making him the youngest recipient in history) and has even attracted the attention of comparatively mainstream filmmaking figures like director Paul Schrader (Mishima, Blue Collar, Auto Focus) and writer Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho, The Rules of Attraction).

Collaborating on a film noir to be set in Los Angeles and produced under a “micro-budget,” Ellis and Schrader seem like a perfect match, both having dealt with the harsher sides of American life in much of their work. Thanks to Ellis’s Twitter-habit, word got around that he considered porn’s everyman, James Deen, to be his first choice to play the lead in the pair’s noir project, in which, according to Ellis, “nudity and acting is a must.” Additional information on the project is still under wraps as it continues preproduction, but Ellis let slip that he met with Deen and called the well-endowed burrito and anal sex fanatic “super-smart, funny, perfect for the part,” also saying “if he doesn’t get it I’ll be very disappointed.”

So will Miss B., Mr. Ellis. So will Miss B.
