Over the past five-or-so years we’ve seen a few breakout websites that have either directly or indirectly changed the face of porn. One is clearly a boon, while the other is a more complicated bedfellow. Twitter has assisted pornstars in breaking down the barriers between them and their fans, allowing for 24/7 contact with those that made their career, and it has been embraced by almost every pornstar this porn-filled noggin can think of! Hit up a list of pornstar Tweeters and you’ll soon enough find photos of Katie St. Ives wearing nothing but a fedora and a cigarette or Bobbi Starr’s blog posts addressing the state of the adult industry; both examples of the stellar additions to the porn world made possible by Twitter.
The other site? Well, that’d be any one of those XXX YouTube clones popping up faster than you can complain about their horrible video quality and blatant copyright infringement. (More on those sites and their impact on the industry here.)
Later this week porn professionals will descend upon sunny Pasadena, California to showcase their freshest wares and latest innovations in the realm of adult pleasure at the 2011 AVN Novelty Expo. Hosting more than a hundred exhibitors, from ASLAN Leather to XMYBOX, the ANE is when and where the makers of the world’s finest vibrators, dildos, pocket pussies, lubricants, condoms, lingerie, aphrodisiacs, sex furniture, lotions, and self-lubricating vibrating studded cock-rings gather ‘round the campfire to unleash their original erotic creations upon the salivating men and women of the adult industry. Also hosting some of the industry’s notable personalities discussing everything from the materials used to make your favorite dildos to the role bloggers and reviewers play in the current state of the adult industry. (Everyone’s favorite Asian BBW pornstar, Kelly Shibari, is speaking at that one. Feel like adding another reviewer/blogger/co-panelist, Kelly? Do ya?)
Those in the LA area interested in attending better act quick. Proceedings begin on the morning of Thursday July 7th, peak with The “O” Awards on Friday night, and continuing on Saturday morning with a floor show that must be seen to be believed.
Don’t forget to return here to Mr. Pink’s Blog for a full rundown of all the “O” Awards news!
Any man knows that nothing beats a gorgeous blonde with a slender body, a supple ass, and a pair of the finest tits money can be. Hence the breakout popularity of Kagney Linn Karter. First appearing on the LA porn scene in the summer of 2008 in New Sensations’ titty-flick She’s Got Big Boobs!, Kagney flew to the porno A-list and started shooting and hanging with Bobbi Starr, Adrianna Nicole and the rest of the best of the 21st century’s newest generation of adult superstars. While many of her new colleagues were out getting more tattoos and shoving large phallic objects up their rectums to prove their sincerity, Kagney stuck to her roots as a feature dancer and let her body do the talking. After just two years in the business and after a handful of truly stunning performances, Kagney nabbed 2011‘s AVN award for Best New Starlet and racking up (heh) an impressive resume in just two years, Kagney was finally honored with her own title, 3rd Degree Films’ All About Kagney Linn Karter. It appears, however, that hanging out with her apparently more deviant colleagues has had an impact on the still-rising bottle-blonde starlet and that same title sees her first interracial and anal scenes. DPville USA, here we come!
