For all the sex positive writing that I do, I’d never actually talked with someone who worked in the adult entertainment industry for a living. Like a lot of people, I just assumed they all were failed actresses and cokeheads.
That was unfair of me.
Over the summer, I met up with Ryan Keely, an adult film star, Penthouse Pet and Penthouse advice columnist, and an erotic dancer. Ryan, who is originally from Seattle, is as smart as she is beautiful; it’s clear from spending time with her that her heart lies in bringing the joy of sexuality and sensuality to others. Recently, Ryan has been teaching seminars for Porn Star Sex Life, co-founded with Josh Rosenberg, a pick-up artist who created UpYourAttraction.com. I was a little skeptical, too, of Porn Star Sex Life classes. Generally speaking, I think porn gives us stupid role models. The actors and actresses fake great sex and know how to make it look really awesome on screen. Why would we want to emulate that? But Ryan is an approachable educator: she’s had a lot of sex with a lot of partners, both men and women, both onscreen and off, and she is ashamed of nothing. “What it takes to be a porn star is you want to explore your sexuality,” she told me. “The people that are in this industry for the right reasons are people are want to take sex to the next level. We’re sexual athletes.”
I walked away from an afternoon of cake and milk with Ryan thinking, “Damn, I want this girl to be my best friend and I want to sleep with her.” After the jump, Ryan opens up about why missionary is the best sex position for women, her stance on sex positive feminism, why she hates KY Jelly, and her one-woman campaign to bust sexual taboos!

Chances are, if you’ve had a functioning television over the last few years, you already recognize Autumn Reeser from her roles on “The OC” and this past season of “Entourage.” But her new show, “No Ordinary Family” (which debuts tomorrow night at 8 p.m.on ABC), is one of the most talked about shows this season, setting Reeser up to become one of the actresses you should keep your eye on. Reeser plays Katie Andrews, a woman who becomes closely involved with a family that discovers they all suddenly possess some, uh, supernatural abilities. I got a chance to talk to Autumn about her exciting new role, whether she’ll be back on “Entourage” next season, and got the scoop on her pet project — a female-focused blogging venture that could give The Frisky a little competition. Check out the interview, after the jump! Keep reading »
