Beating on a Budget! with Wicked Pictures

wicked_pictures

Wicked Pictures has, in the 22 years since it was founded by Steve Orenstein, risen from a brash young upstart to one of porn’s most consistently popular and adventurous hardcore studios. From recent hit titles like Axel Braun’s Barbarella parody, Massage School Dropouts, My Dad’s Hot Wife, My Secretary the Slut, and Jessica Drake’s award-winning ‘Guide to…’ instructional movies, most everything worth watching from Wicked has been collected at the company’s official Wicked Pictures website, where a new 1080p HD feature movie is added every week and photo galleries capture more sedate views of some of porn’s preeminent on-screen talent.

Home to the famous Wicked Girls (who, at various times, included Jenna Jameson, Chasey Lain, Asa Akira, and Jessica Drake) and with dozens upon dozens of industry awards and accolades on its ample mantel, Wicked is the stuff of pornographic legend. And, thanks to Mr. Pink’s devotion to discounts, it’s now more affordable than usual!

THE MATH:
Now available for only $17.95-a-month, Wicked Pictures and its immense archive are incredibly affordable. Each of the 729 DVDs currently available can be considered to cost only 2.5¢ each. And the 4107 scenes contained in these DVDs now cost a ridiculously low 0.43¢ each, proving that acclaimed, award-wining pornographic excellence doesn’t come much more affordable and unmissable than Wicked Pictures.

Bonnie Rotten: EXPOSED

You’d think everyone would be used to seeing a woman’s breasts by now. With rampant displays of cleavage and total toplessness at an all time high according to the National Department of Boobolgical Statistics, and with public disgust at such displays at an all time low, you wouldn’t expect a topless woman in the most sinful, decadent, and indulgent city in the country to turn heads, let alone lead thousands of men to the kind of slack-jawed gawking not seen since the days when Janet Jackson’s infamous hand-bra album cover graced billboards and distracted male drivers the nation over. Yet, here we have intrepid exhibitor of naked flesh, Ms. Bonnie Rotten, swanning around Manhattan and just, like, fucking blowing everyone away with her tits, or something.

Telling a TMZ cameraman she doesn’t “give a fuck” about being seen naked (No shit?), Rotten traipses through Central Park and cites demonstration of a New York law that allows toplessness as her motivation. The looks of outrage and repulsion as Rotten bounds (and bounces) around TMZ crew members and the occasional actual New Yorker are mind boggling. In this day and age, a woman’s breasts causing grown men to skip girlishly down a path, calmly give directions when asked, and even smile politely when confronted with the, uh, confronting image of the AVN winner’s spider-web breast tattoos – it’s just about unheard of, an almost complete non-reaction and clearly not the one Rotten or TMZ were looking for.

Before boarding a subway train and garnering even less attention for her hardly shocking behavior, Rotten tells the camera she’s starting to feel a little nervous. “I’ve heard they have crabs on the train,” she explains. I mean, fuck, folks – the jokes write themselves with this one! “They’re very real,” she tells a table of men in Times Square ogling her famous, award-wining, million-Google-Image-Search-hit-returning mammaries, basically refuting the claims made by an investigative YouTube journalist in late 2013, as seen here:

Well, TMZ and their controversial pornstar du jour have certainly shown us that… what, women can go topless in New York without garnering much attention from Johnny Law, The Man, or ultra-conservative eunuchs. Cool. It’s a pity Scott Weiner ruined San Francisco for nudists or perhaps Bonnie Rotten would have shot a stroll down Market Street naked from head-to-toe.

Christian XXX’s Transgressive Porn

christian xxxScour the comments section of any popular video site, concentrating your reading on movies and scenes starring the heavy-set, hairless, and smirking Christian XXX and you’ll find numerous viewers lamenting the man’s work and, sometimes, his very existence in the adult industry. It often seems like there’s no other male pornstar who raises the ire of porn lovers than the man formerly known as Maxx Diesel. Now, as Mr. XXX launches his very own transsexual hardcore site, Pure TS, we take a look at one of porn’s most devoted and inspired (yet oddly ridiculed) men.

Starting out in adult entertainment after a stint as a bouncer in Las Vegas, Christian found his entry point through director Chi Chi LaRue, who suggested performing in gay instead of straight productions, citing the higher pay. Joining Falcon Studios and shooting as Maxx Diesel, our guy soon became a popular performer and began to branch out into hetero work. Taken under Kink.com’s expansive black wing, Christian expanded his repertoire by letting strap-on-equipped women penetrate him and by shooting with the growing stable of Kink’s transsexual stars. Clearly, this flirtation with non-hetero sex and non-cis performers irritated some less open-minded (or perhaps repressed) – hence the oft-bandied insults the “haters” toss in his direction.

Christian’s latest venture should be heralded as a significant moment in mainstream porn, what with his recent Kink and Evil Angel successes increasing his popularity in the straight world and urging those viewers to expand their horizons, homo-reluctance be damned! Pure-TS takes viewers on a journey into transsexual hardcore guided by a veteran adult performer with plenty of straight work under his belt – a rarity in the usually isolated TS porn world.

“I wanted to create a site that would be something I’d enjoy visiting as a consumer,” Christian announced in the Pure-TS press release upon the site’s launch. “It had to be user friendly, intuitive, and feature top talent. That’s what Pure-TS is.” The site already boasts a strong initial offering featuring such award-winning trans-performers as AVN’s Transsexual Performer of the Year Venus Lux, Sarina Valentina, Robbi Racks, Mara Nova, and Kylie Maria, each of whom acts as versatile tops/bottoms for the equally adaptable Christian. Membership costs $24.99-a-month.

As transsexual people, performers or otherwise, see greater acceptance from the porn industry and Western society as a whole, it’s likely that Christian XXX is on the cutting edge of a thrilling new trend, hopefully one that brings real, substantial change to the attitudes that have previously relegated trans-performers to low-earning adult jobs often shot in unsafe or exploitative conditions, and cast aside from other adult performers.
