Is AVN promoting Child Porn?

When I heard that AVN released their nominations, like everyone else I quickly went to their website and checked out the list.

What surprised me is the category for “Best Young Girl Release

Not exactly a category one would expect from such a well respected leader in the adult industry.

This particular award category actually is for the barely legal type movies but the name makes it sound much worse than it actually is. So I have to ask — what the hell where they thinking naming an awards category best YOUNG GIRL release? Really AVN? Seriously, nobody thought this might be a little inappropriate?

Was there really not a single person at your organization who thought this was a bad idea?

The nominees in the Best Young Girl Release category are below.

  • Adorable 2, Digital Sin
  • Cheerleaders Gone Bad 3, Third Degree Films
  • Co-Eds Are Easy, New Sensations
  • College Daze, Rock Star/Adam & Eve
  • Corrupt Schoolgirls 3, Reality Junkies/Mile High
  • Cuties 5, Elegant Angel Productions (Javors)
  • Hot Teen Next Door12, Reality Kings
  • The Innocence of Youth 5, Digital Sin
  • Prom Night Virgins, Smash Pictures
  • Rocco’s Psycho Teens 5, Rocco Siffredi/Evil Angel
  • She’s Only 18 #6, Porn Pros/Pulse
  • Slut Puppies 7, Jules Jordan Video
  • Teen Fidelity 8, Kelly Madison/Juicy
  • Teens Like It Big 14, Brazzers
  • Young & Glamorous 4, Jules Jordan Video

Is Mr. Marcus Back?

After all the things that that jackass did I was floored that AVN was quoting him in one of their recent stories. Fuck him and fuck AVN for supporting him or talking to him or having anything to do with him.

Mr. Marcus Sneaking Back Into the Business?

source

It’s truly unfortunate that adult performer Alicia Tyler, at the tender age of 27, was found dead from cause or causes not yet known.

Tyler, according to AVN, had just launched a comeback to the industry after being on hiatus since 2009 following the birth of her daughter. She was found dead Sunday at her mother’s California home. Apparently she had a history of stomach issues and asthma.

What I think is more unfortunate about this whole incident is that AVN chose to quote Mr. Marcus. And that confirms my suspicions that AVN is backdooring Marcus on us.

AVN states: Mr. Marcus, who performed with Tyler in one of her first scenes, related to AVN, “She gave a passionate performance that felt natural and elevated the scene. You could consider her a sexual goddess with ample sex appeal. She was definitely a fan favorite.”

Of all people to quote- the guy whose selfish behavior revealed the lie that the adult industry fosters safe, health practices. Notice, too, that it’s Peter Warren who wrote the story, and it’s Rob Black who’s told you Warren is not to be trusted. Remember, it was Black who also broke the story that Marcus and Steve Hirsch were in talks to have Marcus directing for the Vivid.

Looks like the propaganda machine is in motion to cram Marcus down your throats whether you like it or not.

BUSTED! John Stagliano Caught in Sexual Contact

Rob Black broke this story but it’s important so I want to share it with you guys.

John Stagliano owner of Evil Angel, his wife and now AVN has claimed that during the production of his Stretch Class series he did not have sexual contact with the female performers so there was no need to reveal his HIV positive status.

While other pictures have already surfaced that he has in fact had contact of a sexual nature with him in other movies … here is further proof, as plain as day that he is having what appears to be unprotected sexual contact with a female performer.

Can anyone say oops, busted?

Stagliano - busted -1 Stagliano - busted -2 Stagliano - busted -3

Wonder if AVN is ready to recant their previous statement?

 

AVN Goes Public with Their Support of Evil Angel

I just say that today I’m highly disappointed in AVN, who went public and on record to say the following ….

AVN has obtained a copy of Buttman’s Stretch Class 4 and viewed the scene in question in its entirety. We can report that Stagliano’s only contact with Summers during the scene is some light touching and squeezing of her buttocks, breasts, stomach and legs, and that he states at both the beginning and end of the scene that he and Summers are in Florida. At no point in the footage does any part of Stagliano’s anatomy enter her body or touch her genitals.

So let me get this right … a person who has been confirmed to be HIV positive gets into a legal tangle over sexual contact with a female performer and not disclosing his HIV positive status releases EDITED footage of the movie in question and AVN posts that they verified this EDITED footage, released by Evil Angel (the HIV guy) and they confirm no sexual contact has been made. I mean hey, this is a guy who contracted HIV, then has been caught touching more than one female in the past (CAUGHT ON VIDEO) and would never lie, right? I mean that makes sense.

john Stagliano

I’m sorry but this just pisses me off.

Why would AVN go on record to say they seen EDITED VIDEO PROVIDED BY EVIL ANGEL and say they back up John Stagliano?

We’ve already seen video and photos of John Stagliano sticking his fingers up girls ass or stretching a girls pussy with his fingers so why is it so hard to believe he did it to Katie Summers too?

Who wants to bet all the BTS footage for that movie goes magically missing?

Some people are saying that Katie Summers should have known better. That this is her own fault for not keeping up on her porn history – that she has been in the business long enough to know who’s who. Right?

Actually at the time this scene took place, she was only in the business for about two weeks and this was her only her 4th ever scene. She wasn’t even in LA or around any of the typical LA people. She was working in Miami and her agent, Kevin O’Neil form Type 9 Models hooked her up with John Stagliano and Joey Silvera who were in town at the time.

Meet the Millionaire Porn Star

Industry news site AVN is reporting huge news today about our Sunny Leone.  It seems she just nailed a major 3 picture movie deal that will guarantee her a payday of at least $1.3 million.  And all of this from a country who has some of the strictest anti-porn laws out there.

I am so happy for Sunny Leone.  She’s an amazingly sweet girl.  I really do love her to death.  She has an amazing personality and the few times I’ve had the pleasure of working with her it’s been a true delight.  I’m glad to hear of her success and hope it is only the beginning.  So basically I just wanted to say congrats Sunny Leone … the millionaire porn star!!

 

AVN:  Crossover star Sunny Leone continues to log more work in Bollywood, which not only has embraced her as a bona fide star but now apparently believes she is one of its hottest emerging commodities. Two recent power moves by the stunning adult performer make the point.

Just this weekend word on the street was that Leone would be taking over the role of Nana Patekar in the upcoming Welcome 2, replacing Mallika Sherawat, who originated the part in the prequel. But that’s just the first piece of Leone news. It was also reported that the former Vivid Girl and Bigg Boss 5 contestant has inked a three-film deal with producer Parag Sanghvi (last film, 24/7) for a whopping amount of Rs 5 crore.”

According to our currency translator, Rs 5 crore amounts to a smidgen over $1,300,000, an amount Bollywoodlife.com characterizes as “obscene,” as in obscenely high. It’s an odd characterization considering that one male member of the “Bollywood fraternity” was paid a Rs 60 crore for one film in 2012, making him the top-paid Bollywood actor for the year. Leone did not even make the 2012 top ten list, which has two actresses on it. She is certainly headed in the right direction, but labeling this latest deal “obscene” begs the question, “Why?”

Dnaindia.com also referred to her alleged remuneration as a “whopping amount,” but quoted Sanghvi as declining to confirm any details except that the three-movie deal exists and that the first project is to begin production this summer.

“It’s too early to reveal any details,” he said. “We start shooting after three months and we are still in finalizing stages. The first film will be on the lines of a thriller, is all I can say at this point.”

He also refuted rumors that the deal included a clause prohibiting Leone from taking any other projects until after the three movies are completed.

Leone’s good fortune in India is in stark contrast to other escalating rumblings over the issue of access to online porn. Last week, according to lifesitenews.com, “The Supreme Court of India … asked the government to respond to a public interest litigation (PIL) petition that seeks to ban online pornography.

“The petition comes in the wake of a brutal gang-rape of a five-year-old girl in the city of Delhi and the gang-rape and murder of a 23-year-old student on a city bus,” the article continued.

Leone herself was “dragged” into the national debate last week during an appearance on the Headlines Today news channel.

“Pornography is not for people who think it’s for real. It’s fantasy and it’s entertainment,” she said, adding, “It’s complete nonsense to blame rape on adult material out there. Education starts at home. It’s mums and dads sitting with their children and teaching them what is right and wrong.”

O’Tweet Party for St. Patrick’s Day

King Ryan Events (kingryanevents.com) in conjunction with Porn Star Tweet and Streamate just announced the details of a St. Patrick's Day event of epic proportions to be held Sunday, March 17, 2013 at Rain Nightclub (rainstudiocity.com) in Studio City, California.  Hosting the all-star event are Irish lasses Marie McCray, Katie St. Ives and Kimmy Olsen with music from DJ Award.

Bill Fisher facing jail time for fraud?

I am not one to normally post on rumors that I haven’t been able to track down with certain facts beforehand but in this particular case since I have … well some personal knowledge of it, I figured it would be okay.  When the story came in, I must admit, I wasn’t surprised.   I think the only real shocker here is that it took so long for his past to catch up with him.  This guy screwed with so many people, and really hurt a lot of good, hard working people that didn’t deserve it … so I must say, I kinda smiled when I read the paperwork leaked to me tonight.

Bill Fisher calls himself “the king of all MILF films” yet most people who have done business with him in the porn industry know him simply as “douche bag”.  He’s screweed over more people than I could even begin to count.  He’s taken advantage of so many people and left many many bills unpaid including those to copyright control people, at least one magazine, more than a handful of producers, two DVD distribution companies (those guys who actually print the DVDs) and that we know of at least one company who authors DVDs.  He owes person after person thousands and thousands of dollars and he left the industry in 2011 with his tail tucked between his legs, clearly with no intention to ever repay any of the long list of people he owes money to.

The Broward Palm Beach New Times, a local Florida newspaper reported that in 2010 he was facing a handful of fraud lawsuits for his work on the Showtime series Miami Beach Heat.  Including Megan Wants a Millionaire star of the VH1 Reality show saying he exploited her and tricked her into making softcore porn.   Megan Hauserman and two other stars of the show claim they had no idea that was how the Showtime series was going to be and they were duped into porn.

But really this is nothing compared to the rumor I heard today and it’s a good one.  It turns out investor fraud is a felony in the state of Florida.

According to recent news reports, it seems that South Florida is known as “a hotbed of investment fraud”.

Over the past several years, South Florida has earned a reputation as a hotbed of securities fraud, investment scams and Ponzi Schemes and law enforcement officials have started to put their foot down in an attempt to clean up the mess.

According to the rumors, Bill Fisher tricked investors to give him money in return for making adult films of which he would distribute under his brands or labels Cezar Capone, Amateur District and or other related lines, then when it came time for the investors to collect Bill Fisher took off with all of their money.

While there is no way to know for sure how much of this story is true, I am told the investigators have at least three different complainants in which he tricked into investing, then when the movies were made he kept all of the money for himself.  When the investors went to try and get their money he would simply ignore them, one of which he is rumored to owe more than $60,000.

Bill Fisher would use his associations with well known people in the industry to make these investors feel secure in giving him their money including AVN who for years hired him to produce the AVN red carpet show for the AVN Hall of Fame and at least in one case would have employees of -another well known company- confirm some of his outlandish claims on potential sales figures when calculating potential return on their investment.

But here is the interesting part of this story … the rumor is, these investors aren’t involved in their own personal lawsuits with him.  They are instead cooperating with law enforcement officials in an investor fraud investigation that could land him in jail which is considered “rampant” in South Florida at this time.

In June of this year the FBI formed a task force specifically for the Southern District of Florida Securities and Investment Fraud and to date 85 defendants have been charged as part of the crack down.  Will Bill Fisher be lucky #86?  One can only hope so.   He’s screwed enough people.  It’s time for him to get his comeuppance.

The US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida is said to be interviewing several people involved in the Bill Fisher case and tiny bits of information has been leaked as a result.  So if anything else comes out about this case I’ll be sure to let you know.

If others associated with Bill Fisher and his shady business practices will be involved in the legal issues, I don’t really know.  I don’t know to what extent anyone any others were involved into tricking people into doing business with Bill Fisher.  I guess only time will tell.

Sometime last year Bill Fisher sold off his interest in the Cezar Capone and Amateur District labels and the new owners are not in any way associated with the investment fraud scheme that Bill Fisher was running.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Dark Knight XXX gets ‘5A’ AVN Review

AXEL BRAUN EARNS FOURTH CONSECUTIVE ‘5A’ AVN REVIEW IN A YEAR FOR VIVID’S “THE DARK KNIGHT XXX”

The Dark Knight XXX: A Porn Parody, the newest adult parody from Axel Braun and Vivid Entertainment, has earned the coveted AAAAA critical rating from AVN.com, the website of Adult Video News. It is the fourth consecutive release from Braun and Vivid to earn AVN’s highest rating in the past 12 months.

Dark Night XXX

Within the last year, Braun has earned 5A ratings for Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody; Avengers XXX: A Porn Parody and Spider-Man XXX: A Porn Parody, which won 2012 AVN Awards in the Best Parody-Drama, and Best Cinematography categories. Braun also won the Director of the Year-Body of Work award for the second year in a row.

It is quite a thrill to see my movies be so successful both financially and critically,” said Braun. “I have the constant support of an amazing company, and the priceless help of a terrific crew. We all work very hard to bring these projects to life and to make them as entertaining and as exciting as possible, and receiving a ‘perfect review’ from AVN is an incredible honor.

In his review of The Dark Knight XXX: A Porn Parody, writer Carlos Colon said, “Axel Braun handles the gloomy seriousness of Christopher Nolan’s Batman universe every bit as deftly here as he did the Technicolor campiness of the ’60s TV show in 2011 AVN Best Parody – Comedy winner Batman XXX: A Porn Parody.”  He added, “For those disappointed by (the mainstream) Dark Knight Rises—and there are many—this may serve as a refreshing antidote. For others just seeking some red-hot Bat-action, they’ll be downright enthralled. Either way, the ending leaves things wide open for a sequel, so expect more Dark Knight dirtiness to come.”
