Introducing Lana Rhoades

Lana Rhoades

Porn is a corruptive influence on society, or at least that’s what’s often claimed by anti-porn and anti-ex crusaders out to kill everyone else’s fun ’cause a deity or their own prudishness told them to. The thing of it is, they might be right. Lana Rhoades, a fresh-faced 20-year-old who’s just burst onto the LA porn scene in a huge way, first became interested in a career as a sexual entertainer after watching reality TV show ‘The Girls Next Door’ which documented the lives of Hugh Hefner’s gaggle of blonde girlfriends. And now she’s taking giant black dicks, staring into a camera lens and pretending to fuck every guy watching, and even tonguing the asshole of one of porn’s most controversial figures and biggest crossover successes, James Deen.

Born in Wisconsin but earning her stripes in Chicago tending bar and stripping, Rhoades had long thought of flying to LA to try her hand at porn but was initially dissuaded by her mother. Later turning to direct emails to agents, she heard back from the legendary Mark Spiegler, sent him some photos, and the rest of the story really tells itself. (No, her mother still does’t know!) First shooting masturbation and striptease scenes and galleries for FTV Girls (where she even works out topless in a public gym) then moving on to harder scenes, Rhoades’ piercing eyes, slender but curvaceous figure, and fondness for anal play made her an obvious starlet to watch.

Noticed and quickly cast by Mike Adriano for a BangPOV scene, then by Naughty America’s Virtual Reality department for a virtual girlfriend experience in POV, then by 2016’s reigning AVN Director of the Year, Greg Lansky, for his Blacked website. An interracial scene was something Rhoades wanted to shoot when she first decided to try porn and she says working with Flash Brown was “Really cool…His dick was big, but I liked it.” (Another reference to her self-proclaimed supertight snatch.) Lansky wants her back and she’s down to shoot for Lanksy’s all-anal site, just not quite yet: “Whenever I do anal I want to do it for Tushy.”

With future work for Amateur Allure, Hustler, Teen Fidelity, and HardX already in the pipeline, we’re definitely going to be hearing more about the woman of whom Keiran Lee says, “If this girl doesn’t win an award at this year’s AVN’s, I’ll be really surprised!” And it’s pretty clear why, too.

Makin’ Memorial Day Memories

Elsa Jean

The United States’ national day of remembrance of those who died serving in the armed forces defending our freedom from despots and tyrants and that ol’ reliable threat of communist dominos. A much sadder version of Veterans Day is how some people think of Memorial Day, the focus being on those no longer with us. But how do we best remember those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for their nation. Why, we shoot some racy Memorial Day porn in their honor, of course!

Monday saw many of us kicking back in the outdoors, barbecuing something bloody, drinking something bubbly, and daydreaming about a life where everyday is a holiday. The major porn networks, though, were releasing their Memorial Day celebrations, trying to steal us porn lovers away from family, friends, and backyard football in favor of triple-headed blowjobs, stars-and-stripes bikinis, and explosive sex with foxy American babes.

Naughty America’s My Friend’s Hot Girl site presented a trio of incredible women – Abigail Mac, Anastasia Hart, and Subil Arch – in a soapy boat-washing sessions after which they all pounced on the owner, Johnny Castle, insisting that now his boat is spotless and clean, it’s time for Johnny to take care of this trio.

Passion HD brought in porno newbie Lucy Doll, she of mousey high-pitched voice, inviting her to don a red, white, and blue bikini, jump in the hot tub, twerk just above the waterline, and take her fill of… why it’s Johnny Castle again, having the best Memorial Day any working stiff could ask for! A brand new site by the same folks behind Passion HD also joined in the celebrations of the day, Lubed bringing another POV view of lithe young blonde Elsa Jean as she oiled up her nubile body, stared into the camera lens, and fucked “your” brains out, this time white Chad White doing to the deep-dicking honors. Tiny4K, also connected to the Passion HD network, roped in fan favorite Dillion Harper for ‘Red, White and Brunette’ a showcase of Harper’s delectable curves, sweet demeanor, and devotion to life, liberty, and the pursuit of sexual bliss. Sucking a popsicle that soon melts from skin contact, a cum-covered Dillion ends her scene with an obvious sign-off “Happy Memorial Day.”

It may not be clear must how these hardcore romps from Naughty America, Passion HD, Tiny4K, and Lubed really honor the memories of those who died fighting for the USA, except that this, folks, is A) Why the terrorists hate us, B) evidence of our unparalleled freedoms, C) what those brave soldiers died for, the chance to beat off to themed porn during a national holiday.

Buck & Valentina & Boys & Girls

Girl/Boy 2

Ever since she started producing and directing porn, creating her own concepts and style, Dana Vespoli has been pushing boundaries. From lampooning the sharing economy with ScrewberX, shooting female-POV pegging scenes, and bringing fans into an intimate space with her Real Sex Diary series, Vespoli’s sexual imagination seems unbound by the accepted standards of the industry, the audience, or mainstream society at large. Her latest directorial effort is bound to confound and confuse many would-be fans, invite a whole new audience into the Evil Angel world, and arguably cement Valentina Nappi as the most mature, intelligent, and respectable pornstar currently working.

The sequel to Vespoli’s 2013 release Girl/Boy, a title which saw gender-bending, cross-dressing, and transsexualism playing a central role in the sordid affairs of Ms. Nappi, Manuel Ferrara, genderqueer performer Jiz Lee, and Vespoli herself, the upcoming Girl/Boy 2 pushes things even further into the muddled world of gender fluidity. Joining the returning Ms. Nappi and Jiz Lee are Marcus Dupree, Sovereign Syre, Venus Lux, and one of porn’s most controversial, challenging performers, Mr. Buck Angel.

A trans man, producer and director, acclaimed performer, and valiant defender of sexual freedom, Buck Angel has seen some crossover success with documentaries and television series focusing on his life and work. He has made very few appearances in genuine mainstream (read: mostly hetero) pornography, though, directors perhaps not knowing how to frame a man with genitalia usually regarded as female. Buck’s pussy doesn’t go to waste when paired with Nappi, one of the most enthusiastic fuckers of men, women, and trans people porn has seen in years, and they share mutual masturbation, they sixty-nine, they make-out passionately on the sofa.

Vespoli surely knew she was courting controversy with Girl/Boy 2 and pairing of Nappi and Angel. Already Nappi and Angel’s Instagram followers have started bitching and moaning about the pairing of a trans man and one of porn’s current breakout superstar women. Let ’em, say the performers involved, as they turn online complaints into a call to open-armed sexual and gender acceptance. This is brave, bold, original pornography, y’all, and that often seems to be relegated to low-level fetish sites and small-scale semi-pro studios. Seeing Vespoli, Nappi, Angel, and Evil Angel tackling such a risqué subject is about all the proof this reviewer needs that these are among the most vital voices in porn today.
