Casey Parker gives some sex advice to co-eds

Shane’s World contract star and “girl next door” Casey Parker has been tapped by CO-ED Magazine to be the magazine’s resident sex advice columnist.

“I am very excited to be able to help college students with any sex questions they might have. I remember when I was first discovering my sexuality, there was a lot of stuff I had questions about, but I was too shy to ask. Now, it feels great that I am going to be able to help someone else out.” Says Parker.

Robert, President of CO-ED Magazine was equally excited. “We featured Casey on the front cover of CO-ED Magazine and have always had a great relationship with her. We wanted to do something that was both fun and educational, but also very interactive. We figured, with Casey’s appeal and bubbly persona, she’s the perfect person to give advice to college kids, she gets it, she’s in college, she understands what these kids are going through and can relate to them.” Says Robert.

“I always say that our generation should be more open about their sexuality. Everybody has sex. We might as well talk about it, and improve ourselves so we can get the maximum pleasure out of the act, and please our partners as well.” Adds Parker.

Porn Star vs Porn Starlet, yes there is a difference

I was talking to a friend of mine the other day how we often don’t appreciate the fine art of being a star, a porn star. We sort of lump everyone that performs in adult movies as a porn STAR but in reality there are vast differences between a porn star and all the rest. We got into this conversation while talking about the whole Michael Ninn situation and how little respect the owner of Ninn Worx_SR, John L. Gray has for porn stars and basically treats them like dime a dozen strippers.


So really what does define a porn star over a common stripper or aspiring porn starlet?  The first thing I would say would be industry recognition so that would be judged best by award nominations.  But that alone is not enough.  A true porn STAR would be someone who’s name can carry an entire movie and by that I mean sell well.


Say what you will but in the end this business, like others is about MONEY and without it there is no porn industry so we would need no porn stars.  So a true porn star would need to be someone who can make that movie they were just in sell.  Let’s look at some examples ….


First we have the look of a common stripper.  Sure she’s cute and has the potential to be a porn star but in this picture we see her as a stripper. This really is a picture of a Devon before she was famous. It was when she was a stripper, hoping to one day be a porn star and boy what a difference the two photos show.


Devon


Now here is the photo of that same girl once she has become a porn star!  She became a porn STAR not just based on the fact that she starred in adult films or got some award nominations but because she got name recognition and a decently large fan base.  If you made a movie with Devon in it (back when this photo was taken) this shit would sell.


Devon



Next we have Sasha Hollander.  She in fact has been in several pornos including Afro Invasion 6 from Candy Shop.   But she isn’t a porn star.  We will classify her as an aspiring porn star or porn starlet.  Although she has about a year of experience in the industry her name has yet to really draw in the fans.


sasha_hollander

Next we have someone who has been in the industry quite a few years.  She has a large number of titles under her belt, and some award nominations including a few Urban Spice Award nominations.  She is a feature performer on the dance circuit but in reality she’s never really passed the fame threshold.  In fact, she didn’t even get a nod on the hot 100 who featured porn stars that I personally considered so non existent it wasn’t even funny but that sort of brings me back to my point.  Not everyone can be a STAR and in this case we have an industry veteran, who although hot still is not a porn star.


august-night


So next I give you every definition of what a star is.  Some of you may be annoyed by her and others may not find her all that attractive but say what you will, this bitch sells fucking movies that she appears in.  Her name alone makes many fans look twice at the movie simply because she is in the movie.  She is famous both in the industry and in the real world.

Oh wait, you thought I was talking about Tera Patrick didn’t you?  Well no.  Although all that I said may be true about Tera Patrick, I am actually referring to Sunny Leone.  Who besides her large fan base in the porn world also has done quite a bit of mainstream work as well including appearing in the upcoming My Bare Lady 2, a Fox reality show.


porn-star-sunny-leone


Now that I’ve said all of this I want to point out that it’s not a direct insult saying you aren’t a porn star.  It’s just that well the term means more than just some chick who appears in an adult film.  The term porn star means someone who has reached success in the adult film industry and the judge of that includes award nominations and large sales of their DVDs.  You can be the sweetest, most attractive person in the world but it doesn’t make you a STAR … a porn star.  Only the big bucks associated with the sale of your DVDs can do that.

Tera Patrick’s Tattoo

In the WTF was she thinking category we present the one and only Tera Patrick and her huge tattoo that runs up and down her arm. I realize she likes to run on the wild side and play around with naughty boys but is she to stupid to realize that her product is sold to mainstream male audiences that tend to like more bare flesh that ink on a female body?


What am I talking about? Well when I was looking at photos from AVN from the last article I wrote I noticed a few of Tera Patrick as well and couldn’t believe the fucking stupid ass shit she pulled by inking her body. My thought is that she did it on yet another desperate attempt to get on a TV show like Miami Ink or whatever but does she not realize how much this could hurt her business?

Eva Angelina Pregnant?

I was looking through those photos over at AVN for the FAME awards and something stood out to me and that was that every single porn star was half naked, except for Eva Angelina. Unlike the other girls in short dresses and stomach exposing outfits, Eva Angelina was in jeans and a very baggy shirt. The outfit was cute, don’t get me wrong here, I’m just saying it really stood out as unusual. Well apparently it wasn’t all that unusual after all. At least not when I got my hands on a little email that said these very shocking words ….

Eva Angelina is definitely pregnant. I overheard her telling someone about it at the Erotica LA show.

Although unexpected I’m most sure you will all join me in wishing her the best in the upcoming months and to a quick recovering so that she can get back to work. We have no news at this time who the father may be, nor could Eva Angelina be reached for comment.

Nikki Jayne is Newest Vivid Girl

BUBBLY NIKKI JAYNE FROM MANCHESTER, ENGLAND SIGNS ON AS NEWEST VIVID GIRL Nikki Says She’s a Classic “Naughty and Nice” Gemini


Nikki Jayne


Vivid Entertainment has signed Nikki Jayne, a statuesque 22-year-old blonde English lass as the newest Vivid Girl working exclusively with the world’s leading adult film studio.


Born in Manchester, England, Nikki attended high school and college in the historic town of Wigan and there she formed a bubbly, outgoing personality that led her to pursue studies in the performing arts.


While holding down her first job out of school in advertising sales for a local newspaper, the 5’10” blue-eyed beauty also competed in kickboxing matches and was a part time model. But she always felt it was almost inevitable that she would become a performer, and she was drawn to adult entertainment.


“I come from a very open-minded family and they’ve always been supportive of my decisions,” Nikki says. “My aunt was a stripper and she probably inspired me because I always wanted to do something where I showed off my body. I’m probably a classic Gemini with both naughty and nice sides.”


Nikki was modeling evening gowns in the UK when she was discovered by an agent. She performed in just one adult movie when she was introduced to Vivid executives. “The first adult movie I ever saw was Vivid’s ‘Last Girl Standing‘ and I was very impressed by the actresses,” says Nikki Jayne. “I realize what a lucky break it is for me to become a Vivid Girl.”


In addition to her acting career, Nikki’ Jaynes passions include traveling and spiritual pursuits such as astrology, numerology and tarot card reading – which, she says, has confirmed that she has lots of sexual and erotic energy. She has recently visited Brazil, Thailand, Africa and India and looks forward to seeing more of the U.S.


Nikki Jayne says she is attracted to men who have “some sparkle and who are capable of lighting up a room when they walk in.” She’s taller than many of the men she dates, but she says that “really doesn’t matter as we’re both the same height when we’re in bed.”


Production for Nikki Jayne’s first feature movie for Vivid will start at the end of June and will be directed by B. Skow. It is expected to be available for purchase sometime near the end of the year of early 2009.

How Bad Must it Suck to be Tera Patrick right now?

I was reading the Wikipedia entry for Tera Patrick when I seen this ….

In 2003, Tera Patrick became the masthead publisher of Genesis magazine, a popular men’s magazine which subtitles itself, “The Home of Porn’s Hottest Stars.” Since she has signed the contract with Genesis, Patrick has graced the cover of seven issues of the publication.

So how bad must it suck to be pushed aside as #2 to Stormy Daniels in the new Genesis Hot 100 porn stars list when you are the masthead publisher? I don’t know … but it’s got to sting a little considering the fact that Tera Patrick has worked her ass off for the past few years to get the title of Queen of Porn from Jenna Jameson, only to be pushed aside so easily by a magazine she is so closely associated with.


So it got me thinking about the whole situation and actual data. Who REALLY is hot shit right now? I mean we can speculate all we want but what about the cold hard facts? I decided to go with the only real hardcore data that is available to us through the wonderous powers of the all mighty Internet.


I will not dispute the fact that both Tera Patrick and Stormy Daniels are hot as fuck and both have a very large fan base. But what I want to know is exactly who is more popular than the other? I conduct this research using only publicly found data from the Internet. In my report I am also including Briana Banks. I happen to know she’s far, far more popular than the Genesis hot 100 report reflects and I am going to use this data to prove that too!

Alexa Traffic Reports


The first data available to us is traffic ranking reports from Alexa.com. Now any expert will tell you that this data isn’t really THAT accurate but it’s really the best tool we have that is publically available for ranking traffic for websites. But again I do want to be completely fair and state that the data found on Alexa isn’t meant to be 100% accurate, just show you a basic idea of the average traffic a website may get.

  • TeraPatrick.com has an Alexa traffic rank of 28.087
  • Brianabanks.com has an Alexa traffic rank of 101.643
  • StormyDaniels.com has an Alexa traffic rank of 674,758

This means that according to the Alexa ranking system, StormyDaniels.com gets less than 2,000 unique visitors a day where as TeraPatrick.com is getting over 20,000. This data may or may not be real accurate so let us move on.

Domain name experts (or domainers for short) are making a killing in the virtual real estate market. They buy domain names for low prices and resell them for more. It’s a unique combination of the real estate and stock market, all done in a virtual world of the dot com market.

These people make it their business to know the value of a domain name based on certain factors. One of these key factors is the value of keywords that make up a domain name such as “Tera Patrick”. This is a name of a porn star to me and you but to these guys it’s a keyword that put together with a .com, becomes on very valuable domain. It’s valuable because these guys know how many times people search for the keywords “Tera Patrick” in any given day, month or year.

Google Term Frequency

There are three based tools used for this. The first is called Google Term Frequency. This basically means how many times the keywords appear in Google.

  • The Google Term Frequency for Stormy Daniels is 80,400
  • The Google Term Frequency for Tera Patrick is 3,460,000
  • The Google Term Frequency for Briana Banks is 4,830,000

So using Google Term Frequency alone, Briana Banks would be more popular than Tera Patrick and there isn’t even any competition with Stormy Daniels …. she’s so low on the chart it’s not even funny. In gamer terms, Stormy Daniels would be a “noob”.

Overture Ratings – OVT

Next we have what is call the OVT or Overture rating. This is a basic judge of how many times per month people search for the keywords. In this case our keywords are Tera Patrick, Stormy Daniels and Briana Banks.

  • Briana Banks has an OVT Rating of 179,713
  • Tera Patrick has an OVT rating of 212,520
  • Stormy Daniels has an OVT rating of 8,488

Using this method Tera Patrick is on top, with Briana Banks in a close second and Stormy Daniels again off in nowhere land. To be honest with you, when I started this report, I expected Stormy Daniels to be really high on the list, not off in an extremely distant third place. I knew Tera Patrick would rank higher but I truly had no idea Stormy Daniels would prove to be quite so unpopular with the Internet folks.

Wordtracker

Next we looked at WordTracker. Wordtracker periodically compiles a database of over 330 million search terms which is updated on a weekly basis. All search terms are collected from the major metacrawlers – Dogpile and Metacrawler. In short, it tells us how many times per day someone searches for a specified keyword.

  • Briana Banks 9,222
  • Stormy Daniels 4,310
  • Tera Patrick 14,015


Every week this data is updated. So it’s accurate as of a week ago! So we aren’t talking data that isn’t relevant. This kind of report shows very clearly that as of right now Stormy Daniels may be more popular than Lanny Barby but she’s nowhere near the popularity of stars like Tera Patrick or Briana Banks or even Tory Lane for that matter. In fact, Stormy Daniels isn’t as popular as her fellow contract girl Jesse Jane according to the most updated Wordtracker report.

Estibot Total Website Estimate

But let us keep going. Surely there is something out there that will back up the claims of others that Stormy Daniels is the best. Next I performed an automated valuation of their domain names. The value of their domain names were calcualted used a complicated and confidential method that uses a variety of data to come up with a figure of a round about value of their domain name.


It is a computerized system so it doesn’t realize that Tera Patrick is a popular porn star … it just knows the data that is stored on the keyword phrase Tera Patrick so in reality these domain names would be worth MUCH MUCH MUCH more. But using this system it basically takes how many times the keywords appear in google, how many poeple link to these pages, the page rank of a domain, the alexa rank, how many estimated uniue visitors per day each website gets, if you were to purchase these keywords using pay per click, how much each of those would cost you (per click), your OVT rating and your Wordtracker estimated searches per day. Using this data they get an estimate for each girl.

  • TeraPatrick.com is thought to be worth $500,000
  • BrianaBanks.com is thought to be worth $390,000
  • StormyDaniels.com is thought to be worth $130,000


So there we have it. Stormy Daniels may be super sexy and get some 2 second spots in some real movies but it doesn’t translate into the popularity that others are trying to make it to be. As much as I hate to say it, Tera Patrick has everyone beat when it comes to down right porn star fame.


For fun I ran reports on some of the real top starlets in the industry right now. These girls include Tera Patrick, Briana Banks, Jenna Haze, Jesse Jane, Stormy Daniels, Sunny Leone, Tory Lane, Savanna Samson, Lanny Barby, Eva Angelina and Amy Reid.

The Hot 100 Porn Stars

Just as Forbe’s magazine each year ranks CEOs and Celebrities, Genesis Magazine ranks the hottest 100 porn stars. This is the 10th year they’ve produce such a list and this year is no different.


The Top 100 Porn Stars


Looking at the list this year a few things stand out ….. Tera Patrick clearly needs to step it up in the “real world” because despite the fact that her movies sell better and she’s a more popular PORN star, she was picked only as number two in favor of Stormy Daniels who works more in the mainstream including movies like Superbad, Knocked Up and on TV shows like Dirt, The Tonight Show and ABC’s Nightline. Apparently being the best porn star doesn’t have as much to do with being an actual porn star as it does getting your face on TMZ.com. Silly Tera Patrick, she should have known that!

With a talent pool as large as there has ever been in the adult industry, Wicked Pictures contract star and director Stormy Daniels was chosen as the top star of the past year. “Stormy’s career in front of the cameras and behind them was simply amazing,” said Dan Davis, Editor-in-Chief of GENESIS. “Operation Desert Stormy was just one of her hits this year, and let’s not forget the other movies she wrote, directed and appeared in, her acclaimed feature dance appearances and her appearances in tv shows, movies and music videos.”


Stormy also directed the all-girl hit The Predator, starred in Black Widow, and has also appeared in in the best-selling DVDs for Superbad and Knocked Up, as well on the TV shows “Dirt,” “The Tonight Show” and ABC’s “Nightline” and in the music video for Maroon 5’s hit, “Wake Up Call.” The Wicked Pictures epic Operation Desert Stormy, which she wrote, directed and starred in, was recently named the “Best Sex Comedy” at the 2008 AVN Awards, and the show also saw Stormy winning the Jenna Jameson Crossover Star of the Year award.


Other interesting things about the list is how low Internet favorites like Briana Banks and Lanny Barby are. I’m not sure what the criteria was to make up the list but top sales and Internet searches clearly wasn’t one of them or someone like Briana Banks wouldn’t have been below starlets like Hillary Scott, Gina Lynn, Carmen Luvana, Rebecca Linares, Anette Schwarz and Gianna Michaels. I’m not saying these girls aren’t pretty or don’t have talent but let’s be real … when it comes to sales figures and dollar signs they don’t quite beat Briana Banks or Lanny Barby.


I will say this though, it was great to see the last name on the list was Jenna Jameson. Jenna Jameson’s appearance on the very end of the list is a big slap in the face. I mean someone needed to say it and I’m glad that Genesis Magazine finally did. Jenna Jameson was huge in her time but her bitch attitude and fuck you to the industry that made her the money she now enjoys is just to much for me. She became rich in this business and now she’s to fucking good for it? I guess that’s a rant for another day.

To see how the rest of the rankings shaped up, pick up the August 2008 issue of GENESIS with the free bonus edition of “Porn’s Hot 100” on sale at newsstands everywhere. The main issue also features pictorials with Eva Angelina, Audrey Bitoni, Stoya, Roxy Jezel, Nikki Kane, Jayme Langford and many more of porn’s top stars. A complete list of the rankings is also available at www. genesisonline.com/hot100.

  1. Stormy Daniels
  2. Tera Patrick
  3. Jesse Jane
  4. Jenna Haze
  5. Belladonna
  6. Sasha Grey
  7. Hillary Scott
  8. Eva Angelina
  9. Gina Lynn
  10. Bree Olson
  11. Savanna Samson
  12. Carmen Luvana
  13. Sunny Leone
  14. Katsuni
  15. Brianna Love

I may be a porn star but I’m no hooker!!

I may be a porn star but I’m no hooker proudly proclaims Kayden Kross, stars of such titles as Be Here Now and Deeper 9. Over at the Mike South website, Kayden Kross has been blogging up a storm and today her subject is prostitution. She points out how as a stripper, hooking on the side was looked down upon and as a porn star it’s very common place to be propositioned … even by so called industry professionals.

Kayden Kross says “I just couldn’t stand the assumption that I would fuck the fat-walrus-looking man for $300 in the back. Thats all. I don’t personally have a problem with the transaction made between a hooker and a john. I think it should be legal. There is one way to solve the CA budget deficit. Tax hookers. We’ll run Nevada out of business. But when a disgusting dude asks me if he can stick his nubby little penis somewhere in me, he’s only asking because he assumes there is a chance. I don’t like it when its assumed that I’m a hooker.”

Kayden Kross’s take on the concept of porn stars and escorting is quite insightful considering so many of her co-workers do it including girls like Pamela Peaks and our newly interviewed Sasha Hollander. What’s most interesting about her rant is that she has decided to make public any man who solicits her for sex via Myspace or from her private email account and if they send her pictures she’s going to post them too. If nothing else it will be funny to see how this one turns out.
