Workers Union in Porn?

Just as Mike South is reporting the faults of the Free Speech Coalition, Ben English / Derek Hay from LA Direct Models is rambling on about creating a porn union. Of course first he was talking about teaming up all the major modeling agencies to edge out the small guys and make them comply with THEIR rules, THEIR prices and THEIR standards. Not sure if that ever got off the ground but now he wants to unionize the entire adult industry? Is he to retarded to know that a Union would hurt his bottom line even more? That performers would suddenly demand and get higher wages?

Imagine how high production costs would go when companies had to have clean sets, new, unopened dildos in their original packages, eatable food, better costumes and makeup artists and pay the girls AND GUYS more money?  They would also eventually start demanding other things like health insurance, paid AIM tests, and so on.  Or does he simply mean organize porn companies and fuck the workers so that he now has a say in how you run your porno business and if he and his buddies don’t like you they can fuck you up and get you out of the industry.   Think of it as organized crime porn.  Don Derek? Here is his actual post ……

2 Cents worth?

Now that we are fast approaching 2009, the adult entertainment industry is starting to show possible signs of faultier. We already know that the industry in general is shrinking and consumers are tightening the purse strings around their little money bags. Reports that various agencies have been slow maybe some what over exaggerated. Yes it is slower but no slower that it normally is this time of year.

The problem the industry is facing is a decline in production. Costs have gone up forcing many newer companies to shoot less. Of course many other factors are involved with the ever increasing number of girls into the business and other issues such as cancellations (which incidentally cost production companies money) or fees increasing to above $1000.

But the truth is, has the golden age of porn ended? Since the departure of Jenna Jamerson, many do not realize that she kept the industry in the lime light. But now with her back to the industry and the negativity felt towards the business in general, the public simply are not longer interested. You may sit and think that how can one person impact the industry and what has it got to do with anything? Well, look back at when she became the biggest thing in porn 2-3 years ago when every company was booming away.

The key now to success largely draws down to quality. No longer can random Joe and or Joesphine (have to be PC) just build a porno site and expect millions. We now have to work for our money. As history shows in any genre, the weak perish will the strong survive. Evident only in today’s stock market alone.

We need to start getting picky with what we are doing and who we are trying to impress. Remember, it’s not raving reviews or a popularity contest in the porn biz that makes you money. It’s the public’s perception that chooses what works and what doesn’t work. Just cause someone says it is the greatest movie ever made does not make it the best selling.

The adult industry needs to pull together to survive this. The industry, at its current point, is too disorganized and separated into too many pieces with everyone fighting for the same piece of pie. Mainstream films have never done so well this year celebrating some of the biggest box office takings world wide. Are they affected by the shrinkage or the economical down turn? The box office would certainly disagree. A lesson to some extent to be learnt here is that movie business is unified in some way. Could their ever be a Porn Union of some description one day? It’s not impossible.

So as we move into 2009, don’t just sit there are wait for the next big thing and ride off that wave. It may never come unless WE do something.

Morgan Dayne signs with LA Direct Models

The lucious and lovely Morgan Dayne has recently signed on to be repped by LA Direct Models. Morgan Dayne is still a CeZar Capone contract girl (their first) but is available for bookings through LA Direct Models for things like softcore video shoots that are for broadcast only, solo stills and girl / girl stills.


Problems in Paradise? LA Direct Models is being called out for bad business practices

I smell some problems in paradise.  LA Direct Models has quickly grown to be the biggest agency in our business right now.  No matter what you can say about them, you can’t take away from the fact that they currently rep a shit ton of famous chicks and their client roster is top notch.


That being said, we’ve begun to notice some cracks lately such as their public letter about their breakup with Sunny Leone.  Sunny Leone leaving them to go with Goldstar.  The Love Twins going with Goldstar.  That you can say you would probably expect since their manager is now with the agency but prior to this month, the girls still stayed with LA Direct.  You hear random stories about them not booking girls, that one chick was claiming that they only booked her once in the previous month.  That chick with the mom in the business, whatever the fuck her name was.    One booking for an entire fucking month?  Damn!


Now there is this story over at Adult FYI, which is basically claiming that Derek is doing some bad business deal and making some very unhappy clients because a chick flaked out on a shoot and instead of honoring their standard “kill fee” for the girl flaking, they opted to piss the client off even more by not honoring the kill fee payment.


If a client cancels prior to the shoot they are expected to cough up cold hard cash in the form of a cancellation fee, so it’s not unreasonable to ask LA Direct to do the same if the talent they send out does the same.


With business practices like this, one can only wonder how long it will be before someone else takes over at the top dog of bookings?  Girls talk, let’s not pretend they don’t and if LA Direct isn’t able to get them bookings, I’m sure they won’t hang around for long.

Adult FYI : Dust of lethal Hardcore posts on www.pornstarperformance.com: Jazel Tay leaves set and La Direct Models does not give kill fee!!


Jazel followed me to the location we were suposed to shoot at. We get there and she decides she doesn’t want to do the shoot. She never even got out of the car. Aparently the driver was her boyfriend, and even though I got the feeling from him that he wanted her to do the shoot, she got upset and said she didn’t feel well and that they were leaving.


We have an agreement with LA Direct that if we cancel a girl right before a shoot that we give them a kill fee, and they are supposed to do the same if the girl cancels. When I asked Derek about this for this situation he claimed that he didn’t have any of the girls $ so he couldn’t pay us even if he wanted to. Stoney then emailed him and he gave another excuse saying that it was my fault because I allowed the boyfriend to drive her. I’m sorry, but this is rediculous.

Sunny Leone Goes Gold

As news broke about Sunny Leone leaving LA Direct Models, which happened about October 15th, or as LA Direct Models put it, Contrary to the press report issued by Ms Leone in the last few days, it would not be truthful to say that Ms Leone has departed the agency.    Rather, the agency has found it increasingly difficult to work with the new manager of Ms Leone and had reached the conclusion that things had reached a point at which it might be better for her to seek an alternate agency.


Sunny Leone apparently went over to Goldstar Modeling.   Just today I found this listing featuring Sunny Leone on the Goldstar website.  This is where the story gets interesting and quite twisted.  Goldstar Modeling reps Devon, former Vivid girl, who at this point is their only really BIG client, so adding Sunny Leone to their lineup is a huge bonus.  Goldstar recently bought up Blue Max models and named the former owner as the new head of Goldstar New York.  Why this is interesting is this this guy is the one manager of The Love Twins, also former Vivid girls, who mind you has LA Direct Models act as their booking agent, at least for their LA gigs.  Of course if you look at their profile page you will see that they can’t even bother to spell one of the twins name right — it’s Lyndsey.  But that’s not really the point so more on that later.


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?


Claudia Rossi joins the LA Direct Roster

Claudia Rossi, who not to long ago was the porn star of the week, was also a 2007 AVN Award nominee for Female Foreign Performer of the Year.   She actually began her career as a porn star in 2003 an din that time has appeared in over 200 films and counting.   According to an article at AVN, In 2006 she was signed to an exclusive contract for the European production company, Moiré Candy.



Today however she joins the roster of LA Direct Models with seemingly no production restrictions which would imply she is no longer under contract with another adult studio and is currently available to do solo / blow jobs, girl / girl or boy / girl scenes.

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.


Vivid Girl Nikki Jayne Wedding Postponed
