Cool Staycation

Several of the things you have written and videoed in recent postings lead me to suggest the following. It seems you were less than enthusiastic about the Halloween costume party expedition to Las Vegas with your girlfriendS (you did not say how many they were, if any, more than two). What if next time you guys wanted an adventure together, you thought about foregoing the total costs of travel, lodging, and other expenses, like travel time, and pooled your funds to finance a special party in Phoenix?

In Las Vegas, there are zillions of dollars invested in architecture and the like to let you imagine you are in some foreign country, like France, or a historical era, like that of Ancient Rome. While you obviously can't match the grandeur of such an operation, what if you instead enjoyed authenticity, by engaging a foreign students organization at ASU to throw a party celebrating their culture's past or present, with appropriate food, music, costume, decoration, or theatrics (included recorded ones)?

The web page here lists the following EXISTING clubs at ASU:

Coalition of International Students
Chinese Students and Scholars Association
Fulbright International Student Association at ASU
Indian Students Association
Iranian Students Association
Kazakhstan Student Association
Korean Students Association
Saudi Students Club
Singapore Student Association
PERMIAS - Indonesian Student Association
Philippine American Student Association
Qatari Student Association
Taiwanese Student Association
The Kuwaiti Club ASU
Turkish Student Association

Some of these groups take pains to explicitly say they welcome participation by everyone.

By the way, if I have to say this, not infrequently students will study outside their native countries to ESCAPE their families, native culture, legal or political circumstances, and some might even be more inclined to satirize (or just forget) things back home than celebrate them!

The existing organizations listed above do not exhaust the variety of nationalities which ASU tries to attract, one imagines with at least partial success. The page here indicates that ASU admission information is available in all of the following languages:

Portuguese (think Brazil)
Spanish (think most of Latin America)
Thai
Indonesian
Vietnamese
Japanese
Korean
Mandarin
Turkish

Holding the party on campus might be a way to stretch the party budget because of access to cheap or free meeting space. And it would be a way to make it easy for students without cars to attend or even serve to earn a couple bucks. I know Phoenix is not New York or Paris, but as a major metropolis, I'm sure there are at least some ethnic restaurants (and maybe even grocers) to help make things go.

Such a party would also be a way to meet other students (maybe even those who would inspire you by their example or even their friendship to persevere in your studies through the term and the years to come.) And who knows? Perhaps you'd even get to meet some nice boys there - foreign or American.

Finally, by making authentic contact with foreign cultures, you might be in a better position to stage interesting settings for your video productions - and maybe even generate bait which helps you land more foreign customers. Not every foreign culture is as porn-friendly as the USA, but in some cases that just means potential fans there are all the more hungry for such fare. And on the other hand, I'd argue that a country like Japan is even MORE porn-friendly than the States.

As a typical Millennial Generation Sailor Moon fan, you probably know that in Japan, adults as well as children are interested in things like drawn cartoon books ("manga") and animated versions ("anime"). But the popular adult fare there has no popular parallel in the United States. As an example, consider the animated series Ah, My Buddha! ("Amaenaide yo!"). Wikipedia writes of it: The show was broadcast in Japan with an R-15 rating, which is the Japanese equivalent of a 'Restricted' rating... The protagonist of the series is [a 16-year-old] monk-in-training... who transforms into a super-monk with the ability to perform mass exorcisms... He lives in a temple run by his grandma along with six teenage nuns-in-training. And how does he transform when needed? Simple! One or more of the nuns sexually arose him by doing something like flashing him, LOL! And afterwards, the ungrateful be-atches usually kick the $hit out of him for getting horny in the first place. And you thought Sookie and her friends cornered the market on odd supernatural sexcapades!

You could watch a typical (half-hour) episode of Ah, My Buddha!, dubbed into English, here, but instead, I'd advise you to invest your limited time in viewing the three documentary videos I will now mention.

Learn quickly about Japan's sexual heritage and culture via a largely-English-audio 14-minute clip from a year 2000 BBC-Japanese co-production here. (Or avoid the login, at the disadvantage of Vietnamese captions which overwrite the English ones, here.)

Then, if you have an hour to spare, I'd have you watch two half-hour episodes from Japanorama, a fast-moving, fun-loving three-season documentary series on contemporary Japanese culture produced by the BBC in the previous calendar decade. Alas, it will be another year until the BBC starts to sell its back-catalog of programming in the US via Internet video on demand. Until then, you can cheat by viewing these two programs at the following places online.

First watch the season 1, episode 3 program, titled Sex, here.
Then watch the season 3, episode 2 program, titled Ai and Koi (Love and Romance), here.

And to beat a dead horse, Chroma-Key is a great way to enjoy an exotic, even foreign, set without busting the production budget.

Cool F*ck Winter, Halloween is Coming!

Hey Dani,

Getting back to the issue of lame and faithless Halloween costumes, it just struck me that Game of Thrones provides a treasure-trove of creative ideas for horrific and identifiable Halloween characters and costumes! Sure enough, some quick Googling proves this has been a popular idea for some time now.

If this struck your fancy, I know you would be stormborn-tempted to go all Queen of Meereen on us - not the least because of the name and golden locks. But LB & Isis look silly in wings - and Isis would rather to play down the violence vibe in her life, given what her namesake does in the Mideast these days.

So I'd like to suggest you instead consider the path less taken, engaging your sword fetish for a tour of duty as Brienne of Tarth!

Finally, with soooo many characters in GoT, surely any of your fellow macabre merry-makers would have a wide range of characters from which to choose. And besides, how hard is it to stick a few fake knives into one's ketchup-bloodied gut and make like a Red Wedding non-survivor? Sheesh!

Cool The industry: yesterday, today - and tomorrow?

Hey Dani,

I recently caught up with the recent months of your video logs, save the last four (617-620).

First, let me thank you for heeding my simple advice about lighting. I see you now hang an opaque cloth behind you, and provide task-specific lighting from the front. I'd like three-point lighting and a ChromaKey background even better, but what you are doing is fine. One suggestion: don't wear glasses if you can help it, because glaring light reflections obliterate your pretty eyes!

Thank you for inviting us to limited preview of your renewed webcam work. Can I make a suggestion that might help pass the time when clients are taciturn or too few in number? Today when people say "porn," they tacitly expect you to imagine full-color, low-noise, video material - including even VR stuff. But once upon a time, porn almost exclusively consisted of verbal stories, like "naughty" novels; Lady Chatterly was among the first. Be careful about straining your voice (keep a drink at hand), but consider reading "dirty" stories during your Webcam shows to fill any awkward lulls in the action - and maybe even turn on the clientele. (Given your aversion to video relative to reading, I'd be surprised if the thought never crossed your mind at all!) If you have any aspiration to do "straight" acting or even voice-over work, it would be good practice, too.

I've always felt that one can benefit by knowledge of one's craft and industry, and to this end I'd like to suggest you review three germane video titles about which you may not know. They allow you to glimpse the changing industry over the decades, with the aspiration that the exercise may help you have realistic ideas about the future.

1. Behind the Scenes of an Adult Movie (1984) 100 minutes [IAFD link]
From the last years of the celluloid era. It's title says it all. This film was a Best Classic Release nominee at the 2010 AVN Awards. Best of all, you get to see someone named "Danielle" performing with your "boyfriend," Ron Jeremy! (Maybe I never should have shown you that YouTube comedy piece about women who love porn, which leverages Jeremy's biologically inevitable declining appeal as he reaches his last years; I think the guy was decent-looking in his youth, if you go for the Mediterranean type.)

2. How They Make Adult Movies (1997) 54 minutes [IMDb link] [MDiD link]
From the height of the videotape era. Again, a very descriptive title.

3. Jade - Why I Chose Porn - BBC Three (2016) 39 minutes [YouTube copy]
The story of a slightly younger British colleague of yours in today's Internet-centric world. (The BBC screwed around for several years, trying to make its content available world-wide for a fee, but evidently they are not as competent as you and the FTV guys, sigh!)

Given the subject of this post, I've decided to integrate the revision of a related post about a book immediately below, and delete the original copy.

==================

We all know you are a bookworm, so I want to commend to your attention a significant new book JUST (2016) published by Britain's Oxford University Press, titled The Pornography Industry: What Everyone Needs to Know. (I think it's a real steal at US$17.)


Having quickly read the book, I think it lives up to the promotional review blurbs the publisher provides online here. Given its (book) format, one is especially impressed how it stays up-to-date with last-minute developments!

I really think everyone in your business should make time to read a serious book like this. *SIGH* - if only such books had been available to me when I was your age and looking to enter, and prosper in, a particular field of work!

If you do read this book, it would be interesting to hear your thoughts about it in a vlog. And because it includes a history of the industry, it might even give you some product ideas.

Best always,
RtL

Cool Gay of Thrones

Hey Dani,

In a recent vlog you expressed the ambition to start watching Game of Thrones from HBO, as you are a fan of the book series. The show has amazing production values, like that of a feature film, including very realistic-looking CGI dragons which interact with the human cast. As I recall, each hour-long show, which leverages a cast of about 200 and a crew of roughly 800 others, not to mention the extras sometimes used, has a budget of about US$10 million!

Starting with the third season of the six exhibited so far, the Funny Or Die web site has been producing a short video synopsis for each weekly show, all of which you can find online here. Called Gay of Thrones, these hilarious reviews star Jonathan, the swishiest West Hollywood hairdresser you will ever meet, who leverages one's knowledge of popular culture to help keep track of the enormous cast of characters, as he recounts the latest episode to a (quasi-)celebrity customer on whom he is working. Why not spare three minutes now and pick any of these shorts to be sold on the concept - and the HBO series as well!

I'm sure that is absolutely hilarious! I will have to check it out after I've watched the actual Game of Thrones episodes.

Yeeeaaaahhhhhh....I usually start my day either wearing contacts or glasses. I'm not going to put in a set of contacts just for my video logs. Besides people like variety and some people are fans of glasses. The vlogs are meant to be casual. The lighting may be off in the vlogs I shoot in my office but I think the vast majority are okay with that. While I appreciate your advice I'm not going to set up three point lighting or a Chromakey. That purple opaque curtain is something that has been in my office (essentially hiding my shoe racks) for at least two years now. It wasn't put up for the vlogs.

As far as the reading erotic stories goes....I absolutely hate reading out loud. The only time I will really read a story out loud is when I'm reading my nephew a bed time story.

That could be a really cool Halloween costume idea. Alas! I have no Halloween plans this year.

Cool Introduction to Psyche, famed consort of Eros

Hey Dani,

I know you've always loved butterflies, which is probably why your grandma gave you the large, century-old painting you so love, which on naive inspection features one such critter. But what you fail to realize is that a conventional butterfly is not sitting on a woman's back. Instead, what the viewer sees is a chimera!

In particular, this is a representation of the mythical ancient Greek heroine Psyche, wife of the god Eros/Cupid, he the son of Aphrodite/Venus, the goddess of (sexual) love.

In times gone by, such as America long ago, these now-quaint myths not only provided entertaining stories and pretty images, but also a way to discuss - and even celebrate - once-tabu subjects like sex.

The legend of Psyche and Eros was left to us within a 2nd C work called Metamorphoses (or The Golden A$$), the only novel to survive whole from Latin-speaking ancient Rome. (This novel is often sexually explicit, and inspired a wonderful modern derivative erotic graphic novel by the artist Manara, also called The Golden A$$, cf. here.)

Through the ages, Psyche and Eros have been the subject of many stories, plays, paintings, statues, etc. The Wikipedia synopsis is here. This complex tale and its rich symbolism plausibly provide inspiration for many significant details of much younger stories like Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella. My favorite telling is Alison de Vere's 1994 wordless musical animated film, Psyche and Eros, illustrated here. It was shown on Britain's Channel Four, but I've no idea where to buy a copy. In recent years, a pirated copy sits here.

My personal favorite painting of a solitary Psyche is Guillaume Seignac's 1904 Le Reveil de Psyche (in English, The Awakening of Psyche), a contemporary to your own painting. Here it is:


My personal favorite painting of Psyche with Eros is William Adolphe Bouguereau's 1889 Psyche et L'Amour, shown just below. The museum owning it publishes a video discussing it here.


Let's now examine some of the story's symbolism. While both Eros and Psyche have wings, her wings are, UNlike his, not the traditional bird wings of various mythological chimeras (e.g. the sphinx), but uniquely those of the butterfly. This is because they represent the inner labia, which they so resemble, just as Eros' penetrating arrows represent the penis. (For more about female genitals and the butterfly, cf. e.g. RFSU's 2012 animated sex ed film Sex on the Map here.)

According to Freud, the couple's depiction in flight represents coitus. And long before Freud, the German euphemism voegln (in English, birding) meant coitus as well. Even the word we use for orgasm, climax, reflects ascension skyward: it comes from the Greek word for ladder.

This psychological association between flying and f*cking seems to transcend era and nationality; long before you were born, US TV was packed with National Airline ads in which pretty young female flight attendants stared into your eyes, admonishing you to "Fly me!" Find an example here. That you not miss their subliminal meaning, eventually ads would include copy like "I'm gonna fly you like you've never been flown before!" Competitors would rise to the challenge with their own salacious innuendos; Air France ads would ask: "Have you ever done it the French way?" I'm sure your elders have vivid memories of such advertising!

Perhaps the ultimate celebration of the connection between flying and f*cking was a segment of the 1979 Bob Fosse biopic All That Jazz, in which we were invited to board a plane operated by "Airotica." Watch this unforgettable musical performance here. By the time it is over, a healthy man watching this will find his "gear" secured in the upright and locked position!

Since you probably associate Psyche's hubby Eros (i.e. Cupid) with Valentine's Day, through which romantic love is celebrated, let me comment on its symbolism as well. The icon of the day is a highly stylized graphic we call a "heart" into which Cupid ejaculates his bow-launched arrows. But as any anatomist could tell you, this symbolic "heart" looks NOTHING like a real human heart, but instead like the butterfly-shaped thing below! So don't ask why Eros appears without Psyche in today's Valentine's Day artwork - she's there after all.


Given that it won't do in many places today to call the Valentine's Day symbol a c@nt, why has the euphemism of the heart been chosen for it? Observe that emotional agitation (e.g. as experienced during coitus) is accompanied by increased heart rate and blood pressure, making us aware of the existence of an organ we normally ignore - the heart. Note the close visual resemblance between the stylized heart symbol and the vulva was exploited in the trailer for a film called Heart Throbs (IAFD entry here), as illustrated here. By the way, the current Wikipedia article on the heart symbol claims it never represented what it does today before the 14th century.

Now let me digress for a paragraph and speculate about a famous euphemistic phrase refering to the mechanics of human reproduction: the birds and the bees. No definitive explanation has appeared for its origin, although you often read that the 1825 writing of Samuel Taylor Coleridge has the honor. Whatever the truth, I'd like to observe that its underlying psychology curiously reflects matters including human genital anatomy. A small bird looks somewhat like male genitals in size and shape, especially if its neck it long. And the bee, in resembling the butterfly, looks somewhat like female genitals in size and shape. And of course, both birds and bees take flight, which reprises the discussion of flight as a symbol for coitus!

Returning to the matter of Valentine's Day, this Christian saint's festival falls on the day when the pre-Christian Romans had a fertility celebration called Lupercalia, which you see portrayed early in Shakespeare's play Julius Caesar. Men would run (nearly?) naked through the streets and strike women who wanted to bear children or enjoy easier deliveries with straps of animal skin, which "magic" rather obviously symbolized fertilization. (Note our word "f*cking" or the German word "ficken" are cognates of the German word "flicken", meaning "to strike.")

Spring-time fertility festivals are widespread, albeit often sublimated from their aboriginal forms, especially in places where highly sex-phobic religions like Christianity have now dominated for centuries. One example, which marginally resembles Lupercalia, still takes place in rural Hungary during Easter, where, in public, men "come" on the bodies of young women using water (or sometimes perfume), as shown in the video here. The linked video idly claims it is "more innocent than a wet teeshirt contest" - YEAH, my CUM-SWOLLEN BALLS it is, LOL! Sometimes this custom is called "Ducking Monday", as Easter Monday is the likeliest day on which it takes place; I guess that's more polite than calling it "F*cking Monday"!

Extra-vaginal ejaculation onto one's beloved is the subject of a well-known song from 1984, Pretty Mess by Vanity. As I write, you can find its official music video more or less intact here. The song lyrics are published here. Those who have trouble discerning the sexual symbolism of the visuals or the lyrics can read the explanatory song review here, evidently penned by someone who finds songs of this type culturally dirty.

Perhaps you are surprised to see Eros/Cupid portrayed as a sexually mature adult in the painting above, rather than as an infant, which representation was my own consistent experience until middle age. The ancients did not always depict Eros/Cupid as an infant with a bow and quiver. Another common form showed a young adult riding a dolphin, a rather phallic symbol itself, such as in the pair of mosaics shown below, preserved in the house of Amphitrite in what was in ancient times Bulla Regia, in today's Tunisia.

Cool Introduction to Psyche, famed consort of Eros - part 2


[continued from last post]

That's not to say it ever was uncommon to show Eros/Cupid as an infant. But it seems that modern fine artists have instead favored portraying him as a post-infancy pre-pubescent, as in the four examples which follow.

First are a pair of curious images of Psyche and Eros, in which Psyche appears without her traditional characteristic butterfly wings.

Here is Joseph Berger's Psyche Et Cupidon, circa 1840 (+-20 years):


and then here is Pompeo Girolamo Baton's 1756 Marriage of Cupid and Psyche:


I know that some people might be wondering what a woman Psyche's age is doing banging a younger guy like Eros, so I'll point out that it's okay since we see they first got married! ;-P

For those who are not placated by this, I'll now offer a pair of paintings in which Eros appears with a Psyche whom no one would call age-inappropriate! ;-P

First up is the work of a woman painter from the pre-feminist ages, Angelika Kauffmann, whose 1795 Bildnis der Geschwister Plymouth als Amor und Psyche appears directly below:


I hope it won't disturb too many people when I offer an English translation of the title: Painting of the Plymouth siblings as Amor [i.e. Eros] and Psyche. But Dani, perhaps you might think twice about showing this picture to your brother, lest he wonder if you are making a funny suggestion! ;-P

So, for the sake of those who think "family togetherness" can sometimes be too much of a good thing, I will offer a final image where it is not an issue. Below is another work by William Adolphe Bouguereau, his 1889 L'Amour et Psyche, Enfants, in English Amour [i.e. Eros] and Psyche, children:


If you want to look at even more historical paintings and statues of Psyche and Eros, consult the large index on the page here.

And don't miss Psyche's career as a 20th century advertising spokesperson in the illustrated essay titled Oddball Ad Campaigns of the 1940s: White Rock's Topless Tinkerbell here.

This item reminds us that Tinkerbell, today the mascot for Disney, is basically a great grand-daughter of Psyche! But don't be shocked that Disney would so conspicuously use a symbol intimately tied to a demi-goddess of erotic love! That's because Tinkerbell herself originates as a character in Peter Pan - which the naive might see as a simple childhood tale, but which can easily be read as erotically charged, with only a bit of detective work. I don't have time to do that now, so in the following post (in which the CMS will let me embed additional images), I will offer a brief tease for now.

Cool Introduction to Psyche, famed consort of Eros - part 3

[continued from last post]

So why does one claim that Peter Pan contains an erotic undercurrent?

First, there is the name of the story. The demi-god Pan was the most infamous horn-dog of antiquity, whose reputation is aptly represented by a celebrated statue below of him screwing a female goat!

And by 1902, "peter" was attested in print as a euphemism for the penis, predating the debut of the story a few years later. Thus, the dick of the lustiest playboy of antiquity's mythology is properly enough called "Pan's peter." Don't tell me that when J. M. Barrie chose the name "Peter Pan" he had no idea of these associations! [Eighteen months after I first made this post in January 2017, I learned that in the brothels of America's "Old West," the term "peter pan" was ALREADY in use to designate the wash basin in which a client's genitals were washed! For my enlightenment, thank an episode of a one-time (2003-05) History Channel serial titled Wild West Tech, a copy of which you can view as I write this here. This fact is also attested in the book Red Light Women of the Rocky Mountains (University of New Mexico Press, 2011) on the page here.]

Second, Barrie (born 1860) was raised in the small Scottish village where a legendary orgy took place in the 1880s, which is remembered in a bawdy classic song called The Ball Of Kerrymuir. A cleaned-up version of it is sung by Jim Croce here, and an unexpurgated version is sung in a heavy Scots dialect by Kenneth McKellar here. A summary of its numerous variant naughty verses can be found here.


Finally, the story of Peter Pan itself contains several very telling symbols and puns which time does not permit me to share with you now. Maybe later, if you are good! ;-)

Yep, I recently found this out and now feel like a dork for mispronouncing it. Though, listen to the way most Americans pronounce Worcestershire. You want to talk about butchering the pronunciation of a word lol.

Smile Adult film industry future

Hey Dani,

I just watched video log 713, wherein you reply to Anoree's questions about the future of the adult film industry.

While I have encouraged you to look into Virtual Reality and related technologies by visiting a Phoenix arcade, I suspect it is still too early for you to try launching into anything like full-scale VR production. I think arcades will help acquaint more people with the experience and lead to increased deployment and the evolution of gear which keeps getting more standardized, inexpensive and capable.

But that's not to say that doing experiments is prohibitively expensive any more, as was the case a decade ago! Spend a few minutes to see what one can accomplish with the Ricoh Theta S, a "360-degree" video camera which TODAY only costs about $250, Amazon page here, by watching the OLD review here.


Eager to promote VR and related technologies, both Facebook and Youtube host the sort of video produced by cameras like these for free. You could shoot a free promotional video and post it on Youtube for signed-in "adult" users to enjoy, soliciting feedback. And if the results were good, you might even start a for-profit "side hustle" shooting similar matter for your fellow metro-Phoenix adult film talent!

As to the question of what to do about media piracy, there is no simple answer. First, appreciate that it is not a problem peculiar to porn. ALMOST ANY information product is subject to the same abuse: other types of films, books, software, and most famously of all, music.

Video games are an exception for a couple special reasons:
(1) Although distribution media naively appear to be conventional optical disks, they are NOT, being incompatible media which proprietary game consoles alone can easily read.
(2) Multiplayer online games ADDITIONALLY require the coordination of a chaperoned server, which makes the end-user software useless absent a paid subscription to such a server.

One book which tries to intelligently discuss how commercial artists of all sorts can try to cope with a post-Napster world in which piracy is unavoidable is Information Doesn't Want to Be Free: Laws for the Internet Age, Amazon page here.
.

You will recall that I have continued to encourage you to leverage and embellish your film-making skills to enable yourself to enjoy a vocation that cannot be attacked by piracy, such as making sex tapes for private couples. And as a video production professional, there's no reason you couldn't venture into things like making videos which advertise firms, or instruct in the use of products and services - which are paid for by clients who would like nothing better than for them to be reproduced and distributed wthout limit.

As to creating adult films with better production values and deeper emotional depth, to make stories which escape the fungability of austere porn (which aesthetically resembles action stunt matter) - the world seems to be there already! Four decades ago the late porn pioneer Gerard Damiano said the day would come that adult films and conventional films would approach one another in content, creating the all-but-seamless continuum we enjoy today. For example, consider the STARZ cable-TV serial "The Girlfriend Experience," inspired by the Sasha Grey film of the same name. In season two, one of the episodes clearly shows, on a smartphone video screen, a woman fellating what looks to be indistinguishable from a man's penis.

Now, that's not to say that cable TV episodes escape piracy any more than the type of stuff you produce, but at least for now, the convenience of a cable subscription provides enough incentive for enough people not to seek it out to save a few bucks a month, that the business remains sustainable.

As always, you have my best wishes for success in our rough-and-tumble Brave New World. Please continuously make serious long-term savings against the uncertainties everyone will face, and need overcome, in the future.

Unhappy Harassment on Twitter

Hello Dani,

I am wont to let several months pass between the times I binge-watch your new video logs, so forgive me if I raise old issues about which you may have even forgotten. I had been editing the following material on and off over several months. Now, having just seen your video log 714 (which addresses disparagement of sex workers), I've decided to get off my butt and finally publish it here!

I was sad, but not surprised, to hear your report about being harassed on Twitter. Almost everyone even slightly in the public eye has been subject to that sort of thing, whatever occupational career they pursue. The New York Times article here about Twitter co-founder Evan Williams reports: "Four out of 10 [ordinary!] adult internet users said in a Pew survey that they had been harassed online." It quotes Williams as saying "I thought once everybody could speak freely and exchange information and ideas, the world is automatically going to be a better place... I was wrong about that... I think the internet is broken..."

Let me elaborate concerning the additional factor of your career as a porn player.

I remind you that you've made money by doing stuff like Public Humiliation. The key question today is: Where does Danielle the porn player end, and you, the real-life person you are, begin? Why should you be suprised that clients might reach you by Twitter to verbally abuse you in ways which are much less transgressive that what happens to you in video products? If you can play a role, why can't they?

Further, I caution you there are sick people who can't separate fantasy and reality. It only takes one such person to come close to ending your life, as sadomasichistic porn veteran Sharon Mitchell discovered one horrible day in the late 1990s! I strongly encourage you to explore the issue I raise by watching the 2017 Lifetime television "biopic" of Duke University student and porn star Belle Knox titled From Straight A's to XXX. (Alas, as I write this, I can't find a legitimate source for it, e.g. Amazon or NetFlix.)

Should you want to continue exploiting Twitter, there are ready methods to protect your feelings. Most celebrities never reply to non-celebrities who post on their feed, denying any provacateur the satisfaction of seeing any of their irritation succeed. In the end, no one knows if celebrities only post, and leave any reading of responses to a personal assistant (PA), if anyone at all. And those with thick skins sometimes pose as their own PA if they elect to occasionally respond to someone making a post, as there is no practical problem if a person wants to use multiple Twitter accounts. And finally, Twitter provides limited faclities to censor irritating posters.

In the two posts which will follow, I'll address two particular provocations you decided to detail in a vlog last year.

Wink Insults leveled at your voluptuous figure

[continued from previous post]

First, insults leveled at your voluptuous figure.

What people find sexually attractive variously ENORMOUSLY between eras, societies, and individuals within a particular society of a particular era as well. Your type of figure often set the standard of beauty before the Industrial Revolution, likely because it meant that you were well fed, unlike so very many poor souls, the vast majority of which literally knew starvation every generation. The classical examples are the beauties of the celebrated Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640), such as portrayed in the work below, The Judgment of Paris.

Aside: This painting also appears in a wonderful textbook titled Discovering Human Sexuality, 3rd ed (Sinauer, 2015), Amazon page here, which I'd heartily recommend for your study, based on my cursory perusal. Among other things, it includes a revealing photo of your would-be friend, the birth-gifted DoubleDickDude!


And according to one layman, quoted in The Atlantic issue of Dec 13, 2011, curvy was also the rage in the (much more recent) Victorian times:
Bob Fitzpatrick, a finance student at the University of Michigan [says] 'Back in the Victorian age, it was sexy to be really pale because it meant you didn't work in the fields,' he says. 'Or it was sexy to be fat because it meant you could afford to eat lots of meals.'
Further, please note that even today, it can be very helpful for an adult film player to stay very far away from anorexia. Just listen to the words of wisdom from your often-funny sometime-pal, the full-figured Ron Jeremy, here.

If you are willing to look further afield, to cultures from which very few if any Americans reckon their descent, you can find all types of physicality embraced as erotic, as evidenced by the carefully researched new book Sex Rules! Astonishing Sexual Practices and Gender Roles Around the World (Mango, 2017), Amazon page here. In part, it writes:
Somewhere in this world you’re a perfect 10... Whatever your looks, you are a fabulous beauty… You just need to be in the right place... Thick, fat calves? Adorable, according to the Tiv of Nigeria... Rotund body with big buttocks and large, round legs? The Baganda of Uganda will lust after you... Huge, protruding rear end? Makes you stunning, say the Khoikhoi of southern Africa—the bigger your butt, the more alluring... Bulbous stomach and big hips? You’re the pin-up girl for the South Pacific Mangaia Island.
All this BBW love reminds me of a song from a record-breaking off-Broadway musical which began playing over a dozen years before your birth, titled Let My People Come. It is sung by a chubby girl who aspires to be the peer of the leading female porn stars of her day: Linda Lovelace (star of Deep Throat), Marilyn Chambers and Georgina Spelvin. Give it a listen here and smile!

Unhappy Insults leveled at your sexual activities

[continued from previous post]

Now, second, onto attempts to use the word "whore" to insult you and your work.

The word "whore" originally simply meant a woman who practiced free love, without any implication of material compensation:
The Germanic terms hore/hure/whore and whoredom are well known from ecclesiastical legislation and theology, but they had no clear direct reference to paid sex. On the contrary, they referred to all kinds of extramarital sex, independent of whether one earned money from it. A whore normally would be not a prostitute but a loose woman.
- Chapter 10, Love For Sale: A World History of Prostitution (see below)

In that double-standard world, men who behaved exactly the same way would be celebrated as a "Don Juan" or a "Casanova." Is that sensible or just? Also observe that starting with the Baby Boom generation, the number of lifetime sex partners the average ordinary American engages has exploded, multiplying about a dozen-fold. Damn near "all" of us are now "whores"! Indeed, the book The Porning of America (Beacon, 2008), Amazon page here, argues that in this century, porn stars have become more like lay (snicker!) people, and lay people more like porn stars. But sadly, this is not the case when it comes to STIs. The increased promiscuity of people today has created an STI crisis, EXCEPT when exclusive resort is made to tested and sequestered brothel prostitutes, or the regularly tested members of the adult film profession, such as yourself. Listen to what a contemporary USA physician says here.

Prostitution, i.e. sex (especially coitus) in exchange for money, has always been illegal in Communist bloc and Muslim nations. The United States is rather unusual, in that as a nation never so described, it has made prostitution per se illegal and untolerated almost everywhere - but ONLY in the last century or so. I suspect that this is related to the fact that today it is so anomolously religious for a First World nation. (Btw, it is little appreciated that USA church membership rates were enormously LOWER in its early history of independence.) Ironically however, the (Catholic) Church of the Middle Ages in Western Europe was in the very business of operating brothels, for the sake of obviating adultery by married women (but NOT their husbands), thereby protecting the "sanctity" of marriage.

Learn more about the history of prostitution in America here.

Other good references on this occupation spanning many societies and ages are:
Encyclopedia of Prostitution and Sex Work (Greenwood, 2006), Amazon page here &
Love For Sale: A World History of Prostitution (Grove, 2005), Amazon page here.

The bottom line is that whether someone tries to hurt your feelings by calling you either a whore or a harlot, I hope you now have ready emotional ammunition for blowing it off! I'll leave the final word on the matter to 12-year-old Violet, the protagonist of the famous 1978 English-language French-made film Pretty Baby, as portrayed by then-young Brooke Shields. Watch the clip here.

If you don't know this film, surely as a Bossier City baby you should want to see it, as it is set a century ago in the famous Storyville legal red-light district of Louisiana's Big Easy, the city of New Orleans. Note also the aformentioned encyclopedia has a couple of articles titled New Orleans and Storyville. By the way, at the time (1978) that Pretty Baby was made, many Americans were shocked at the idea of a 12-year-old hooker, because they had also forgotten how low the age of consent had been in centuries past, including that era.

Childhood and Sexuality: Contemporary Issues and Debates (Palgrave-Macmillan, 2017) states:
When Hirschfeld made a survey of the age of consent in 50 countries at the start of the twentieth century, he found variances from 12 to 16. Whilst the necessity of an age of consent became accepted, the age itself was still subject to debate. For example, in Catholic countries the age was 12–13...
And The Age of Consent: Young People, Sexuality and Citizenship (Palgrave-Macmillan, 2005) states:
Colonial America adopted the form of statutory rape laws from English law... Cocca’s research reveals that the age of consent to sexual intercourse for girls was most commonly 10 in 1885, though 12 in some states.
Btw, do you know the 2007 Cajun-style song Bossier City? Find a recording here, and lyrics here.

And what about the much-older 1974 C&W song Bossier City? Find a recording here, and lyrics here. Yeah, I recall you don't like C&W!

Unhappy Converting your mom to a more modern viewpoint

Hello Dani,

I'm sorry to hear that after all the sexual liberation we've enjoyed this century that your mom continues to cling to attitudes quite common when she was growing up concerning things like adult films, to the point that you report she is ashamed to reveal the nature of your work to her colleagues.

Even as I hope to make suggestions you can undertake to try modernizing her attitude, I also counsel that you try to show some understanding of where she's coming from. You probably cannot BEGIN to imagine how sex, much less sexual art, was denigrated as "dirty" and "shameful" during her childhood in America, whatever her social background. To start, consider these milestones:

Until 1952, film had NO First Amendment protection. States could, and did, prohibit the display not only of sexual matters, but also things like "blasphemy" - things that particular religions found insulting! So much for freedom of religion, as well as speech!

Until 1958, states could pass laws making photographic portrayal of ANY type of nudity criminal. That year, the courts ruled that "nude is not automatcally lewd," finally protecting folks who published magazines and films concerning America's naturist (non-sexual social nudity) movement. The KEY word was automatically: circa 1971, the courts landed up holding that individual communities could impose their own local obscenity standards concerning the type of films that could be shown in theaters. Such a constraint only became substantially moot when adult video moved to electronic tapes, and later, to the Internet, beyond the practical reach of local pressure groups and prosecutors.

And it wasn't only "porn" which was stigmatized. To a large degree, sex itself, including MARITAL sex, was crippled by all sorts of laws. In the 1870s, Comstock made sending virtually ALL sex-related materials through the US mail illegal, including stuff like information on birth control. When Sanger opened the first birth control clinic in 1917, New York State shuttered it. Not until the 1930's did the courts finally protect sending birth control information through the US mail.

Until 1965, states could, and did, pass laws preventing MARRIED couples from buying birth control products. The same protection of freedom did not reach unmarried (straight) couples until 1973.

And of course, until the early years of THIS century, states could, and did, pass laws making "sodomy" illegal. This not only made gay sex illegal, but ALSO oral and anal sex between straight couples, EVEN married couples!

So during most of your mom's life, especially her impressionable childhood, repression of sex and sexual art was very severe and uncompromising, and she had to at least appear to acquiesce to same. More, being human, she almost certainly found it less humiliating to rationalize these restrictions as just and sensible, if Stockholm Syndrome wasn't enough to do the job.

I'd like to commend to your attention a wonderful new HBO series, The Deuce, of which I've seen only three epsiodes. It concerns the sexual culture and evolving sex industry in early 1970s New York City, in particular the area on 42nd Street near the de facto red light district around Times Square. As a teen resident in that city back then, I can assure you it does a very faithful job of capturing both the sexual and non-sexual cultural details of those times!

Things like prostitution and porn were half-tolerated for the sake of keeping them out of other places. As they were illegal, there was no protection by law - meaning that "protection" came from pimps who'd beat up clients who hurt or short-changed their girls - at least when they weren't hurting their girls themselves for not working hard enough for them. The same deal applied to drug abuse and the illegal drug trade, and there were perhaps half a dozen serious violent crimes EVERY day in that area!

This sort of reality reinforced the idea in people like your Mom that sex trades are "inherently" unhealthy, dangerous, etc - and a SURE route to poverty! Of course, the only thing MAKING that so was the absence of protection which every legal activity enjoys! Today, you don't hear about all the violence and death surrounding the sale of liquor - because there is very little. But when it was illegal in the 1920's, there was more than enough of that to go around!

To start your Mom on the route to reform, I'd like to have you read a book: Sex in the Museum: My Unlikely Career at New York's Most Provocative Museum, Amazon page here. It is a wonderful book on three levels: the story of how any museum gets started up, the story of the romantic life of a young woman of today, and a serious look at the nature, history and culture of sexuality. Sarah Forbes, the book's anthropologist author is quoted here, so:
When I first started working at the Museum of Sex in 2004, the institution wasn’t allowed to advertise in the subways due to the taboo of the topic. Now the Museum can be found on billboards across the city and spotted on your morning commute.

While, in some ways, this is due to people’s understanding that the Museum of Sex is actually a museum, it is also a part of a larger cultural shift in which the mainstream is more aware of and open to the diversity of sexuality. The Internet has exposed many to the depths of definitions of sex that were once considered fringe... While we still have a long way to go, over the last decade working in this field, I have seen a tremendous cultural normalization when it comes to sex.


When you finish this book, I want you to urge your mom to read it as well, so that it can form the basis of a discussion on sex between you. Mom's formal sex education was likely quite limited, and I'd be surprised if most of what she knows about the subject was wasn't gleaned from whispered discussions and the school of hard knocks.

When I have more time, I'd like to suggest additional material you may find useful in enlightening Mom to an alternative point of view concerning sex and sexual art.

Best always,
Ron The Logician

Big Grin Musical celebration of porn liberation

Hey Dani,

After all the serious stuff I wrote above, I thought I'd treat you to a little music which celebrates the liberation of porn we have been lucky enough to enjoy in recent times.

Above, Sarah Forbes asserted that
...the mainstream is [now] more aware of and open to the diversity of sexuality. The Internet has exposed many to the depths of definitions of sex that were once considered fringe...
To prove her points, the singing group DaVinci's Notebook offers up the tune Internet Porn, here.


And as to your assertion that porn itself is now mainstream, the smash hit Broadway musical from the previous decade, Avenue Q, examines this hypothesis in the tune The Internet is for Porn, here.


Keep smiling!

Cool A message for those supporting sexual repression

Hey Dani,

I heard you when you complained in a recent video log about repressive sex laws which undermine your social and economic freedom. And by now you know how much worse it was in previous generations. So it is all the more amazing that almost a half-century ago the musical Let My People Come came along to stand up and say, "Enough is Enough!" (Indeed, following up on feebler similar protests over the previous decade.)

First, I'd ask you to hear what inspired such a project - supposedly the highest grossing Off-Broadway production in history - by downloading and viewing the 4-minute video clip here.


Then, listen to the wonderful song from the show which tells off the jerks behind so many repressive sex laws, I Believe My Body, here. And do enjoy the religious fervor with which it expresses its message, given that sexual repression has so often been religiously inspired.


You might even share this post with your mom and see what she thinks about it!

Default Free content

In video log 713 you talk about people not paying for porn, and ask about how other people would feel about working for free. I am a musician so I do a lot of work for free and post a lot of free content. I think there is a place for it. I'm not advocating stealing, but I think that the models of everyone gets something for free but those who pay get something extra, or content is provided for free but donations are expected, though not required (which is the way most of my concerts work) , or advertisers rather than consumers pay for the content, are all viable alternative methods where people can get some free content which is supported by others paying for it.
