Mark Ashley Calls out the Derek Hay Scam known as LATATA

Porn performer Mark Ashley calls out the  scam known as LATATA – [source]

This post I think I’ll devote to a subject that has been getting some attention lately. Agencies. It’s a touchy subject for discussion publicly mainly because most performers are worried about backlash in the form of economic reprisals from a few of the agencies. If you want my honest opinion, the porn industry needs to do away with this scam. You think an association of adult talent agencies has our best interests at heart? Really? Before I get into public slandering of a bunch of sociopathic bullies and manipulators, lets get right to the heart of the matter. The money.


For starters they take an agency commission of 15-20% of talent income. That means for every 1 million dollars doled out to pay talent, $200.000 of that goes to pay someone with no real talent to speak of other than sitting on their asses in front of a computer and doing what 90% of the industry talent used to do for themselves. And thats just the tip of the iceberg. We’ve all heard stories of buying out of the agency for a large fee. Are these contracts even legally binding? And what about the constant blacklisting that goes on against any talent that dare question their authority? Or for petty reasons that have more to do with pushing independent contractors out of the way to make room for their shitty b-list talent that’s too scared to rock the boat. How many of you listen to the same bullshit that comes out of their mouths (you need to lose weight, you need to get breast augmentation, you have to do this scene even though you are tired and sore, we have to hold your rate, you have to start doing anal scenes,etc.) and wanted to throttle them? How often do they get a needle in their arm and piss in a cup to test for work? How often do you see their lazy asses in the gym to stay fit for work? And thats just the shit I’ve been hearing for a few years now. Did they prevent Mr. Syphillis er Mr. Marcus from going to work with a forged test? Did they prevent the condom law from going into effect? Did they improve conditions on set? No they didn’t. They put 20% of our money into their own pockets and tried to tell us that we need them more than they need us. Well now we are in the middle of a crisis in our business and are they doing anything except lining their pockets? Fuck no. They’ve trashed the industry to the point where the girls are more hookers than entertainers. And that requires a lot of grooming to achieve. Most people are born with a little self esteem, these jack offs attack any sign of common sense and self preservation.


My experience with agents is summed up like this – they want a docile  bitch to go along with whatever hack set they send you to. And then they want a dumb dog to just shut the fuck up and do the job. I’ve been lied about rate, who I’m working with, and what type of scene I’ll be doing and I’m supposed to just go along with waiting a month for a check with their cut taken off. I have never authorized  any checks to be written to me by a a talent agency. They seem to think this is ok. What a joke. And they are also getting really efficient at grooming the girls away from any real communication with the other talent. That would breed discontent. It’s no wonder I only last a few scenes with an agent and then bail…


The agency licensing and bonding procedure they try to legitamize themselves through wasn’t designed for porn. It was designed for agents who deal with SAG or million dollar contracts in mainstream movies or television. We don’t make enough and most of our careers aren’t long enough to have some fucking parasite attached to us. And the shitty thing is they have taken so much power for themselves that most people think they are powerless to do something about it. Remember LATATA is only a recent thing and judging by the way the industry is going now I’d say it’s time for these parasite pimp scumbags to hit the fucking road. They’ve had their chance and they fucked up. Remember everyone – YOU CAN BOOK YOUR OWN SCENES!!


Porn wasn’t always like this. It was Jim South and 3 skeezy pimps until 2006. Most girls would do 5 scenes and figure out that they could book their own scenes and dictate the terms. Now you do it out of obligation. The only way to do porn is for yourself. Thats it.. Another way it’s changed is the girls had waaaaay more say in who they worked with. You knew who would show up be cool and rip through a scene with no problem. You knew that if you worked with an A list male talent, you weren’t going to catch an infection or be treated like shit. You knew he wasn’t injecting his dick with Caverject to maintain wood. Now you get some agency/Manwin propped up fraud that never had to really prove himself to begin with. There was natural order. The strongest guys with the strongest girls. The performers had a say in what was going on. Now it’s petty grooming and guilt by an agent. I don’t want to fuck an agency. I want to fuck the girl I’m working with. The director used to actually be concerned with who wanted to fuck who. Nobody cared.It was that simple. Now it’s a fucking joke. And the joke is on you….


Derek Hay Whores Himself Out in Support of .XXX

In the past we know Derek Hay / Ben English will pimp out anything that will pay him a buck but damn this is even a new low for him.

“And, according to PR guy Brian Gross, LA Models is bringing the “Biggest Names in Adult” to EXXXOTICA Miami, to endorse .XXX domains.  

Their website will automatically switch from to as soon as Derek Hay’s paperwork goes through.

On hand to celebrate this historic occasion will be Kagney Linn Karter, Lexi Belle, Alexis Texas, Courtney Cummz, Michelle “Bombshell” McGee, Gracie Glam, Daisy Marie, Breanne Benson, Sarah Vandella, Brandy Talore, Kirsten Price, Ann Marie Rios, Allie Haze, Tasha Reign, Tory Lane, Melanie Rios, Joslyn James, Lexi Swallow, Eden Adams, Capri Anderson, Aleksa Nicole, Jenna Presley, Harmony Rose, and Brooklyn Lee [remember her from that Reality Kings ass movie shot in public?]”

Is there nothing this piece of shit won’t put his names on and whore his talent out to support for a quick buck?

This is a new low, even for him.


Another Derek Hay Rumor

We can’t let the year end without one hell of a rumor now can we?

Here is one that was emailed to me recently.

Derek Hay, owner of LA Direct Models (aka porn star Ben English) is violating the Mann act law by hooking girls in the UK (see link here) and importing illegal aliens and getting them ID cards to work illegally in porn in the USA.

For those of you who don’t know,the Mann act is a law which in its original form prohibited white slavery and the interstate transport of females for “immoral purposes”. Its primary stated intent was to address prostitution, immorality, and human trafficking. While its ambiguous immorality language allowed selective prosecutions for many years, it was later amended by Congress to apply only to transport for the purpose of prostitution or illegal sexual acts.

This photo of Ben English with Tory Lane comes from the movie Teen Stars

So what now is the tally here on Derek Hay profiting from his talent?

He makes money from the producers who want to book the stars.  He then charges the talent a cut for booking them for the job.  He charges then 20% to run their website, plus makes them do scenes for their sites and others in the premium cash network for free, he profits by booking himself as male talent in movies with the girls he represents from the agency and before you say he retired, BULLSHIT, I know just last month for a fact he was doing a scene.  And now there is the hooker fees, that money from which he makes off of the girls for having them escort for him.

Brooke Haven Birthday Bash Turns Ugly

Brooke Haven recently had a birthday party.  With the help of her friends over at LA Direct Models, Brooke Haven hosted a party with 50 or so of her industry friends.   It was a night meant for fun and frolic …. but then something went wrong, very wrong and ended with War Machine wanted by the law, Ben English in the hospital, some asian dude with a broken nose and Alec Knight with stitches in his head.   Although it is unclear exactly what injuries Ben English / Derek Hay has, he is said to still be in the hospital “recovering”.  So what the hell happened?  Well …. that’s where it gets a little confusing.

Brooke Haven from Backdoor Desires

I read the original story on Adult FYI.  In short, War Machine – MMA fighter turned porn star hit his girlfriend at the Brooke Haven bash.  War Machine’s girlfriend, at least according to the story at Adult FYI is Alanah Rae.  Alanah Rae is still rather new to the business, having been around only about a year and in that time doing about 2 to 3 movies per month.  So she’s not completely unheard of, but still rather green.

Alanah Rae

Anyway, back to the story.   War Machine smacked his girlfriend in the face.  Then as others tried to find out what was going on and asked him to mellow out, he went after them as well.  Reports state he just went crazy and started going after anyone and everyone but with all of the attention on the fact that he went after his agent, people are glazing over the fact that this dude his his fucking girlfriend.  What kind of man would do something like that?  And even more serious, what kind of company would hire a man who does that?  That’s some fucked up shit.

Who is this War Machine you ask?  Well according to his Wikipedia page War Machine was born Jonathan Koppenhaver on November 30, 1981 and is professional mixed martial artist (MMA fighter).   He was formerly a fighter on The Ultimate Fighter:  Team Hughes vs. Team Serra.

The Ultimate Fighter season six cast member Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver legally changed his name to War Machine after a dispute erupted with TNA Wresting over the use of his nickname (War Machine) as there is also a wrestler who once used to go by the same name.  When he made the legal move he made a blog post about it.  Here is a copy of that post.

Subject: Funny ass shit!

SO in case you didn’t notice in my last fight the UFC did NOT use my nickname when I fought. Turns out some gay ass wrestling federation threatened to sue them because they recently named one of their wrestlers The War Machine Rhino and trademarked the name.

Too fuckin’ bad that I have been using this name for 6 years, have it tatted on my body and it is what my fans yell out when I’m fighting.

If you know my personality then you know damn well I am not gonna let some faggot ass, FAKE wrestler steal MY name..
SO 6 weeks ago I filed a change of name request and today I had court to make my name officially WAR MACHINE.

Fuckin’ funny right? Didn’t really wanna have to do it but I am sure as hell not lose MY nickname.

Time for a nap.


On 31st of October 2009, War Machine announced that he would pursue a career in pornographic films along with fighting mixed martial arts. War Machine, on the internet stated the following:

“So I said fuck it! I signed with LA Direct Models this week and today I did my first porn scene! (laugh out loud) I shot for Digital Playground with their girl Riley Steele, was fucking awesome! I was nervous as shit but I came through. I’m still gonna fight, just gonna do this too because fighting isn’t quite enough money and you all know I ain’t trying to work! In life I have come to learn that all I enjoy is eating, sleeping, fighting and fucking! Fuck it! I’m living the dream, getting PAID to fight and fuck! What more could I ask for?

Here is the full story from Adult FYI about what happened that night.

This is what I posted earlier Sunday: So much for War Machine’s porn career.

The Grand Vizier woke me up out of a sound slumber early Sunday morning and just gave me these highlights with promise of more to follow:

“This looked like something out of a bad Vince McMahon script as this guy War Machine went nuts and began taking everyone on at this party,” The Vizier says. “We’re talking multiple assaults and battery with the cops after him.”

“War Machine’s own agent, Derek Hay, looked to be the primary target with a couple of shots to the head. Mika Tan’s Ex was KO’d as well & sent to hospital.”

“I never saw anything like it,” continued The Vizier. “War Machine was in kill mode. His fists were lethal weapons. Anyone who tried to get between him and Derek got taken down – hard.”

Since then a number of wrestling sites have picked up the story and even War Machine has been twittering about the incident:


War Machine twitters: • to do? Wait and let someone craxk me first? lol..I think not. Fuck all you fucks.

• Ya’ll can say what you want but when you got 5 guys drunk and in your face pissed about some BS that ain’t even true what am I supposed

> Fuck….last night was NOT good…lil’ misunderstanding and then WM was back in effect and the bodies hit the floor. I’m fucked….lol

Alec Knight who was hit and knocked out has this to add in a Twitter post:

“I’m ok. Just have to take it easy for a few days. Got a few staples in my head, but I’m going to be ok.

“I got hit in the noggin. Then my noggin hit he ground.”

I spoke to The Grand Vizier late Sunday afternoon, and he was telling me the War Machine incident occurred at a private birthday party at the Ultimate Porn Studios on Hayvenhurst near the Van Nuys airport. The shindig was for Brooke Haven and Glen, the webmaster for the MeanBitches website.

The fight, according to The Vizier broke out near midnight, but there was already a weird vibe due to the fact that it was reported earlier that David Aaron Clark had died.

“There were maybe 50 to 60 people at the party,” states The Vizier.

“Apparently War Machine wasn’t too happy, claiming that Derek Hay wasn’t getting him enough work as far as he was concerned. What happened next was speculative. Either War Machine socked a girl or was accused of doing it. Either way he snapped and began doing an Octagon dance and waving his fists. One guy was clocked and had three teeth knocked out. Another guy- an Asian- had his nose broken.

“Then War Machine came after Derek and knocked him down. Alec Knight was also hit and went down, his head striking the pavement. It seemed that every time someone tried to advise War Machine to mellow out or tried to talk sense to him, they got hit for their efforts. Maybe six guys in all got punched. War Machine was relentless as the crowd kept a distance.”

“The incident wound up with War Machine and Derek playing hide and seek with one another around a dumpster,” The Vizier continues.

“Then at some point, both War Machine and Derek took off when someone threatened to call the cops.”

> Posted on :So here’s the deal..Former UFC fighter Jon Koppenhaver, who legally changed his name to War Machine a few years ago attended a party last night for Porn Star Brooke Haven. Her Birthday party was being held at Ultimate Porn Studios in Van Nuys California..The craziness started when War Machine smacked up his porn star girlfriend Alanah Rae..He then dragged her outside where several people followed him, trying to stop him from hurting his girlfriend..He then laid out at least 8 people at the party..It was pretty much a massacre..Details are trickling in..The Police are still currently looking for him.. Remember, the guy is a MMA fighter turned Porn star. He has given up his seven-year MMA career to have sex for money…His porn dvd is yet to be released.More details to come.. -TO

Update: I have in fact spoken to War Machine’s Girlfriend Alanah Rae, who confirms that the former MMA star hit her across the face last night at Brook Haven’s Birthday Party..She claims he then went on to pummel almost a dozen dudes including his own porn agent Derek Hay..who still remains in the hospital recovering…more to come. -TO

Ben English Stops Performing

LA Direct News posted this message yesterday about Ben English, aka Derek Hay, male performer and owner of LA Direct Models.


Ben English says goodbye!

Since as long as i can remember, Ben English has been a huge part of porn and it’s sad to say, that all good things must come to an end.

Ben has hung up his pants for the last time and is off to pursue other things in life.

He is only available for special occasions now, Weddings, Bar Mitzvah’s, Openings of 7 – 11’s, etc etc.

Trouble in British porn paradise?

I don’t know what it means but I’ll leave all that speculation up to you.  In August Vivid Girl Nikki Jayne was said to marry porn star Ben Enlgish / aka Derek Hay, the owner of LA Direct Models.  As soon as we all heard about the wedding, it was “temporarily postponed”.  While some people gossiped about a possible breakup, they were still seen together as several key events including Derek Hays birthday party.   However a few months later and still no word of the wedding taking place and now this appears on Nikki Jayne’s myspace profile “What i wouldn’t give to find a soulmate, someone else to catch this drift“.  Do I smell a breakup between the British born duo?

Nikki Jayne loves her green and yellow dress

Hanna Hilton posted photos today on her MySpace page about her appearance at the Pirates II premier.  She attended the event with Derek from LA Direct Models (aka Ben English the porn star), his girlfriend / fiancée and fellow Vivid girl Nikki Jayne, and Lexxi Tyler.  AVN was there doing the red carpet, and covering the event for their website and that seems to be where Hanna Hilton got the photos.

What stood out the most was Nikki Jayne because she worse this cute little dress that we are becoming all to familiar with, mostly because she wears it all the time.   I think this is the third event I’ve seen her wear it to in about the last two months.  Here is a shot of Nikki Jayne and Derek (aka Ben English) at his birthday party just recently.   You may notice Ben English is wearing a brown shirt that is just like the black one he wore to the premiere.

Here is another shot from the Pirates II premier, which by the way I heard was fucking great.  They throw around the phrase “the best adult movie of all time” all to often but I think from what I am hearing at least this is the one time it may actually have been properly used.  You know what else I notice about this photo?  NIKKI JAYNE IS FUCKING TALL.  HOLY SHIT!  She towers over the others around her.  The LA Direct Models website lists her as 5 foot 9 inches tall but they also say Hanna Hilton is 5 foot 9.  Clearly Nikki Jaye is significantly taller than Hanna Hilton.  Hanna Hilton’s Myspace page also lists her as 5 foot 9 so I would guess that puts Nikki Jayne over 6 foot.  In the previous photo with Derek you can see that she is at least a few inches taller than him and he is at least an inch or two taller than Hanna Hilton.


Be sure to tune into Harry Weiss and Cytherea tonight at 5PM on KSexRadio, Harry has some great scoop on a porn actor who did something extraordinary and extremely gay for a lot less than we all think. Only Harry has the scoop.

And Harry is also officially on Derek Hay’s (Ben English’s hate list).
Gee Ben, whatcha gonna do? Pull out your willy, give it an injection, get it hard and then beat Harry with it?


Dick Bandit Writes:

Too many people are bashing Derek Hay these days. So, here’s my 3 cents.

I’m sure he is a worthless prick, I’ve seen him in this house on set and yes he’s a little arrogant fucker who sticks his chest out like a tough guy around 105 pound chicks but hides behind doors or under desks when confronted by pitbulls or guys. Make fun of him, call him arrogant, call him gay, call his Astin a pathetic attempt at manhood. BUT, call him a good Talent Agent.

His girls show up to set 90% of the time. He always has the newest and freshest talent. He keeps people informed of new talent with professional email blasts and he goes as far as to keep you up to date on talent that’s been in his stable for some time by sending out “reminders”. He has a great staff of people like Richard, Kelly, Fran and Lisa that will bust their ass to get a director what he or she needs to make a shoot. If someone flakes on a set guess who 99% of the directors call for a last minute girl…. DIRECT. Bottom line, Derek and his agency are reliable!!!!!

Derek steers the girls into directions that enhance their careers, mainstream gigs, dancing, cable shows, contracts. Or he steers them to the money if that’s their route, escorting. BUT the key point there is he steers them, but ultimately the talent has the final say.

Basically Derek is a middle man for the talent and the studios. He may not be the brightest of them all, spend five minutes having a conversation with him and you’ll realize he has less intelligence than Kurt Lockwoods asshole, but it’s not his job to be smart, it’s his job to deliver talent to sets and to deliver good paying jobs to the girls. So, regardless of his attitude or shitty personality, call it like it is. He’s a good middleman and provides a service to this industry that makes it better for all involved.
