Mr. Pink’s Must Haves: My XXX Pass

My XXX Pass

We all have a friend who doesn’t know how to sell themselves or, for whatever reason, isn’t inclined towards self-promotion. Porn sites are no different: while Hookup Hot Shot positions itself as ‘homemade social media hookup porn’ it’s fast becoming one of the hottest female degradation sites around. In a similar situation, My XXX Pass has long been presented as a comprehensive hardcore network covering all the most important pornographic bases. In reality, though, My XXX Pass falls short of that tall order while absolutely killing it in one particular department, a sexual sight so appealing its included in most every hetero porn scene ever shot. The area in which My XXX Pass excels, folks, is fellatio.

Known for its annual Deep Throat Challenge that pits pornstars against each other in a test of oral mettle, bringing tears to their eyes on the way to a cum-splattered face, Throated leads My XXX Pass members into blowjob territory with no reservations. Past Challengers and featured deepthroaters have included Karmen Karma, Chanell Heart, and Dana DeArmond, eager oral impalers, one and all. Continuing the lip-smacking smut with a different kind of messy display, 1000 Facials has Heather Vahn, Brooklyn Chase, Aidra Fox and others dropping to their knees, working the head-and-shaft-and-balls, eventually earning a milky white facial as thanks.

Next to Throated, Only Teen Blowjobs and Mommy Blows Best look pretty sedate. Closer inspection, however, reveals a pair of sites devoted more to the women they feature than the blowjobs those women dish out. Only Teen Blowjobs sees stupidly sexy girls like Dallas Black, Liza Rowe, and Karlee Grey get a lesson or two in administering oral pleasure while Mommy Blows Best uses taboo scenarios to heighten already awesome fellatio. India Summer finds her stepson playing too many games and missing out on girls, and decides to blow him a little present; a burglar gets a moist surprise when invading uber-MILF Nikki Delano’s home; Alyssa Lynn can hear her stepdaughter Ashley Adams getting fucked through their thin walls, finding it so arousing she has to interrupt for a quick taste.

Cock Sucking Challenge is ‘Porno Dan’ Leal’s way of getting in on the blowjob-only action – with a twist. Casting two pornstars to slurp and suck for a solid 30 minutes, Porno Dan’s site is more like a low-rent gonzo double-header. Some cocksuckers prove incredibly powerful performers, devastating both the cocks they’re given and their loose-lipped competition. Wide shots and commentary from the crew help make Cock Sucking Challenge a very hot (cum)oddity.

Manuel Ferrara, Sunny Leone (on Sun Lust XXX), Squirting Orgies, and Immoral Live round out the My XXX Pass network with their archives of hardcore episodes, many of which contain excellent oral efforts, but it’s the five sites outlined above that make this thriving thrill-ride a Mr. Pink’s Must Have for any die-hard fan of cinematic cocksucking.

Preparing for Porn

WoodRocket

Last week we compared advice for pursuing and achieving successful anal sex from magazines GQ and Complex, and from adult performer Valentina Nappi, who not only seems destined to become a lifelong porno legend but has earned a reputation for cutting through the bullshit and pretension rife in today’s porn industry. Ms. Nappi’s guide to getting her ass ready for an anal shoot was predictably more detailed and worthwhile than anything GQ or Complex had to say, spurring on further Mr. Pink’s investigation into just how pornstars prepare themselves for the physical gauntlet that is a hardcore shoot.

Enter WoodRocket, a porno revolution in digital form. Packed to the proverbial gills with all kinds of informative backstage glimpses into professional porno life (as well as a killer range of original porn parodies), WoodRocket’s regular Ask a Pornstar feature recently spoke with porn’s best and boldest to discover what helps them get ready to shoot some smut. From the obvious (April O’Neil gets a good nights rest) to the hilarious (Mickey Mod keeps himself hard at gangbangs by browsing Tumblr), a dozen-or-so performers both female and male dish on their pre-scene rituals.

Anna Bell Peaks says she performs via webcam before almost every shoot, masturbating for fans and having at least one orgasm to really put her in the mood. Also a confessed pre-scene masturbator, Trinity St. Clair only packs one bright outfit along with many dull ones, giving her director no choice but to let her wear what she wants; a real comfort. Rain DeGrey admits to Twitter-stalking her co-stars before a shoot, trying to find attractive qualities but going so far as canceling shoots because they proved a shithead online. Amarna Miller Seemingly concerned more with herself than her partners, the always intriguing Claire Robbins nakedly admits to standing before a mirror to poke and prod and examine her body before letting a camera capture her naked, a ritual that “put [her] in the right mindset” for porn.

Bathing is obviously important, as is personal grooming. Amarna Miller hit the bathroom or salon to ensure her signature red hair is properly, evenly dyed and that her natural roots aren’t showing. A long, hot shower or bath is a common night-before preparation, though I was somewhat surprised to hear most women asked say they shave, obviously having worked out any issues with skin irritants and visible razor-burn over the years. Still in the bathroom, enemas and douching proved very popular, the latter somewhat surprisingly. After horror stories and urban legends of rampant fatal infections, tearing, and acid burns, I naively assumed douching had gone the way of the dodo but instead it’s thriving in Porn Valley: Jade Nile mixes coconut oil with a little tea-tree oil while Draven Star and most others seem to stick with fresh water. (Spanish-accented Amarna Miller saying it’s necessary to “not have a funny pussy.”)

Women prod and poke and preen themselves, take of physical cleanliness both external and internal, and try to summon as much enthusiasm as possible, but aside from Mickey Mod trawling Tumblr, what do the men do to ready themselves? Mick Blue, reigning AVN Male Performer of the Year, spoke up and revealed his very own private pre-porn ritual: a double espresso. That’s it.

Anal Advice Assessed

Valentina Nappi

Since arriving on the international porn scene in 2011 and making waves in the US industry thanks to her relentless pursuit of personal pleasure, devotion to full gender equality, or fondness for shooting anal, DP, and gangbang scenes, Italian goddess Valentina Nappi has become one of the more salient commentators on the ins-and-outs of the porn world. So, when GQ published a slightly disturbing article entitled “How to Ask for Anal Sex” only to then be followed by a red-pen wielding Complex writer who pointed out its numerous flaws and falsehoods – “Women like to be surprised,” claims GQ, but that doesn’t extend to surprise buttsecks! – we turned to the esteemed Ms. Nappi for her advice, compared it to that of GQ and Complex, and tried to figure out which source was providing the real assistance to anally-inclined readers. Guess who came out on top?

GQ writer, “sex expert” and hostess, Sarah Jane Banahan suggests forgoing mentioning or requesting an anal attempt in advance, telling readers to “undress her slowly, kiss her, tell her quietly that you are going to penetrate her from behind.” Yeah, kinda like that disturbing scene from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo! Complex, for its part, wanted answers and turned to sexologist Bianca Laureano to get them. “Articles like this are dangerous because they give men the impression they may do something sexual with a partner without their consent.” Real anal sex, dear readers, is nothing like a porn scenario. You don’t start out with heavy petting, say “Turn over, baby,” then dive in cock-first. What you want to do is follow the advice of someone who’s been on the receiving end of many an butt-hungry penis in her time, Ms. Valentina Nappi.

In a blog post entitled How to Do Anal, Valentina lays it out as clearly as anyone anal adventurer could want. First, she details cleanliness protocols, discussing how to administer an enema and how pornstars stay clean on set. Some take psyllium whole husks for a fiber blast thrice daily before a shoot while others take Imodium (“not a healthy decision,” she says), but Valentina herself simply reduces fiber intake prior to a shoot to ensure she’s not leaking all over the set, the props, and her co-stars come the day of the shoot. Lubrication is next on Ms. Nappi’s checklist and, boy, is she through, a far cry from the lube-less anal attempts outlined in GQ. Size is also discussed, with Nappi insisting that every ass is different and can accommodate objects of different sizes. Crucially, she points out that the average length of the human rectum ranges from 10cm to 15cm and anything larger than that may end up smashing your colon, potentially resulting in Depends dependency.

Sure, GQ and even Complex’s guides to anal sex lacked the casual language Nappi uses, aiming for a more scientific-sounding approach to anal preparation, but really, at the end of the day which would you trust, the male equivalent of Cosmopolitan, a hip-hop-oriented youth culture magazine, or someone who takes cocks in their ass for a living and is comfortable, confident, and casually serious enough about the safety of her fans’ and fans’ lovers’ assholes that she’d even post a little infographic to help identify the (literal) shit you don’t wanna know about, as well as the (proverbial) shit you absolutely need to know before plunging your boner deep inside a surprisingly sensitive little passage.
