Phil Varone Returns to Rock

Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee dabbled in porn and so did Snoop Dogg, Ice-T, and Evan Seinfeld of hardcore legends Biohazard. Hell, Seinfeld even adopted the nom de porn ‘Spyder Jonez’ after marrying Tera Patrick and shooting a whole bunch of smut together. Recently putting Seinfeld’s nepotistic endeavors to shame, though, has been former Saigon Kick drummer Phil Varone, who just days ago announced his decision to ditch porn for the pure unadulterated carnal thrust of rock and roll!

A noted lothario and admitted swinger, Varone started documenting his on-the-road exploits in an official capacity with the 2011 Vivid Video release of ‘Phil Varone’s Secret Sex Stash,’ a “celebrity sex tape” that merely set the scene for Varone’s futher ventures into the world of porn production. In 2014 Varone even managed to win an AVN Award, Best Amateur Release for ‘100% Real Swingers: Meet the Rileys,’ just one title in a series that saw him expose the seedy partner-sharing underbelly of America as well as the secret swinging lifestyle of then porno it-girl Siri. Varone also entered the erotic novelties game with Dr. Philgood, a dildo molded from his own penis by Cal Exotics that even bares the penile piercing the drummer has slid into the snatches of groupies, swingers, amateur harlots, and pornstars like Siri but will now keep off-screen.

Varone’s keeping his exact reasons for leaving porn to himself, simply telling fans that he encountered enough douchebaggery in the industry to convince him drumming for hard rock bands is more his thing. Varone’s also retiring his talent agency, The V Agency, telling media “I have always offered my talent a very high level of personalized service, but returning to music and my other projects going on have made this very hard.” (Check out Phil’s Facebook page for more, dirtier revelations or, if you’re patient, you can order the man’s memoir, Un-Philtered or wait for his next, apparently being worked on as we speak.

Look, Phil, no hard feelings but if you’re out of porn I’ll also have to move on and find another stereotypical hard rocker through which to vicariously live my dreams of banging groupies, doing coke off of brand-new shiny hi-hats, and trying some grannies on for size (although that last part might’ve been a Phil Varone specialty).

So, paging Mr. Joshua Todd of Buckcherry…. Josh Todd of Buckcherry, would you please make some porno?

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.)

Kid Rock Subpoenaed for Glass Dildo in ICP Harassment Case

Kid Rock glass dildo

Detroit Michigan is known for being kind of a rough town. Economic depression, white flight, and the collapse of infrastructure has left the former “Paris of the West” reeling for much of the late 20th and early 21st Centuries. Crime rates shot up accordingly, leaving the Motor City struggling to convince the rest of the country that it’s not the surreal wasteland of rapists and muggers many claim it to be. And, quite frankly, two of the city’s biggest musical exports aren’t exactly helping to clean up Detroit’s reputation.

Andrea Pellegrini, a former publicist for Insane Clown Posse’s Psychopathic Records, last month filed a lawsuit against her former employer, claiming sexual harassment. And now, arguably Detroit’s favorite hard-rockin’ son, Kid Rock, has been subpoenaed to produce in court a certain sex toy Pellegrini claims was lewdly offered to her by fellow former Psychopathic employee “Dirty Dan” Diamond, then given to Kid Rock upon her refusal. Oakland County Circuit Court considers the glass dildo cited in Pellegrini’s suit evidence and is requiring Rock to turn it over to the court. Pellegrini claims the implement was offered to her by Diamond after she changed her Facebook status to “single,” an offer she promptly refused.

Rock has not yet complied with the court’s demand and could face jail time if the item is not produced. Those interested in following the case and the dildo’s transition from private sexual aid (or, as Diamond claims, “a work of art”) to admitted evidence can do so via the dildo’s Facebook page.
