The Chubbiest Show in Vegas

BBW FanFestCome July, chubby chasers can finally relax a little because the greatest BBW performers in adult entertainment will all be gathered in one convenient location: BBW FanFest 2012. The invited plump and sexy plus-sized performers, which include Kelly Shibari and Bunny de la Cruz, will head to the party capital of the USA, Las Vegas, for a three day celebration of all things erotically oversized. There’s plenty of fun stuff planned for the event, too, including a trade show (complete with a BDSM dungeon), seminars, dance parties, a strip poker tournament featuring BBW models, “exhibitionism for the shy”, and workshops on Facesitting and Chest Sitting, Photographing the Big Beautiful Body, Positioning Your Big Girl, as well as multiple model Q&A sessions and general sexually-charged frivolity.

If you’re a BBW admirer who really wants to indulge in a little or a lot of half-drunken carousing across the floors of the Tuscany Suites and Hotel, who’s aching to have Kelly Shibari, Desiree Devine, or Sydney Screams’ kiss your cheek and sign a photo for you, this is a chance unlike any other to fulfill your largest, weightiest fantasies.

More information on BBW FanFest 2012, which runs July 13th to 15th, can be found at the events official website. You’ll find a full roster of appearing models, scheduled events, ticketing details (including some delectable premium packages), and everything else you might need to know before the big day arrives. (Well, everything except what delicious treats to bring your favorite hot ‘n’ hefty pornstar, that is.)

Chicks on Chicks with Dicks

Ava DevineRiding a shemale’s dick before a HD video camera adds a whole other dimension to the career and professional persona of a porn starlet and not always in such a positive way – see the barrage of complaints whenever Ava Devine appears in a Naughty America update. Ava, though, is a perfect example of an adult performer unafraid to try new things, expand her professional repertoire, and fuck people in ways most pornstars simply wouldn’t. A number of times and for a number of websites, including her own official site, Ava  has gone above and beyond what most female pornstars would identify as “the call of duty” to bring her fans something truly exceptional and potentially mind-blowing (not to mention team-changing): sex with transsexuals. Grabbing one of her favorite trans-performers – Vaniity is a frequent partner, as is Morgan Bailey – Ava is inclined to fuck their ladyboy asses with a strap-on, let them fuck her mouth, pussy, or ass, and will even get on all fours for a facial pasting containing millions of microscopic shemale sperm. Hell, she’s even down for some four-way tranny bukkake if the mood strikes, but do you think that gets her a place in the mainstream porn lover’s heart? Hell no, they’re too busy ogling Lexi Belle, Jessie Rogers, and every other blonde cutie-pie with a slim ‘n’ sexy figure who’ll snorkel for clams and smoke some pole and even strap a fake one on, but won’t go near an actual dick-equipped-chick with a 13″ Lex Steele Dong.

It’s great to see a performer of Ava Devine’s calibre and experience giver her tranny sisters a spot in a porn flick many folks otherwise would never find, let alone watch, but isn’t it time a few other notable women of the adult world opened themselves up to a little trans-banging once in a while? Imagine hot new (and very adventurous) starlets Holly Michaels and Skin Diamond teaming up to strap-on-fuck Morgan Bailey’s mouth and ass while she beats her own lil’ meatstick. Look, it’s not exactly my preferred style of smut, but it sure as hell is more original than another softly lit blowjob scene in which everyone plays their prescribed gender role perfectly, never crossing any boundaries, pushing any envelopes, or guzzling a shemale’s oral cum tsunami, wouldn’t you agree?

Remembering Kandi Barbour

Kandi BarbourSome sad news crossed the Mr. Pink’s desk this week, concerning the apparent loss of another porn heroine of the Golden Age, Kandi Barbour. Star of such XXX films as The Pink Ladies (1980), Bon Appetit (’80), California Gigolo (’79), and Screwples (’79), Barbour (real name Linda Jean Smith) amassed a small but impressive filmography over her nine years as an adult performer, leading her to be inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame in 2009. To the surprise of many people in porn, the native Kansan was sadly found dead in San Francisco on Thursday January 26th, another victim of the city’s immense homeless problem.

As Golden Age director Carter Stevens recalled to AVN, the last time he had any knowledge of Barbour’s whereabouts and health was 22 years ago when his wife saw her in Hawaii. “She was living above the club [Club Hubba Hubba] and working there… she had a drinking problem. She had gained a lot of weight and was living in a muumuu and never took it off. She did has some mental problems, even at that point.” Suffering from a dysmorphic body image, Barbour believed her nose to be crooked – it wasn’t – and often spoke of having it “fixed.” Very little information about her life between that time and the discovery of her body on a San Francisco street. She was 55-years-old.

Sadly, like so many performers who came both before and after Barbour, she may largely be remembered by her rather modest entry at Wikipedia: “Kandi Barbour was a former American adult models, pornstar and exotic dancer.”
