16 Sex Tips From Porn Stars, Playboy Babes And Feminists

Jenny McCarthy Pubic Hair

Porn stars, Playboy Bunnies, cam girls, feminist bloggers, feminist men and feminist women, we asked them all: What is good sex? Some of these ladies sell their sexuality for a living—ain’t nothing wrong with that. Some of these feminists discuss sex for their livelihood. Either way, sexuality is uniquely a part of these people’s lives because they are constantly confronted with it. While feminists may be subjected to the stereotype that they don’t enjoy sex at all, Playboy vixens and adult film stars have to deal with the stigma of enjoying sex “too much.”

Our social experiment, “Sex Tips From Porn Stars, Playboy Babes And Feminists,” found that there is one thing that makes for good sex: taking control. Read more at College Candy…

Makeup artist Melissa Murphy’s series of mesmerizing side-by-side photos documenting the transformation of bare-faced everygirls into bombshell porn stars stood out as fascinating for a few reasons — namely, the social commentary aspect, in which we’re forced to question everything we think we know about what porn stars are “supposed” to look like. But the photos also elicited reactions that had less to do with the profession itself (and, with it, our preconceived notions of female physical attractiveness) and more to do with Melissa … as in, how the hell does she do it?

Porn stars without makeup

It’s not exactly a secret that celebrities wear enough makeup to suffocate a salamander, and that we all freak out when they’re photographed without. Sans fards! Natural look! A sign of real human being-ness unsullied by airbrush foundation and caulking sealant! But you know who else wears a ton of makeup, and we never give them shit about taking it off? (Perhaps because they’ve already taken off everything else?) You may not be surprised to discover that porn stars in their daily lives, minus the 17 layers of sweat-proof stage makeup, look nothing like what you see on-screen. In fact, you wouldn’t even recognize them on the street, which is probably a good thing.

An “award-winning makeup artist to the stars” known only as Melissa (or xmelissamakeupx on her Instagram account) took 93 before-and-after photos of the porn stars she tends to, and we learned two things: one, the girls look really pretty without their thick varnish of smoky eyes and heavy bronzer (dare I say, better, though I personally tend to think most women look better with less makeup), and two, this Melissa is one hell of a makeup artist. Check out the after photos of these two girls, plus a few more, after the jump, and the rest of them here via Melissa. [HyperVocal] Keep reading »

I am a writer.

Having said that, I ask that you bear in mind how broad that category is. I call myself a writer, and so does Philip Roth. So does my personal public enemy #1, a young woman I met in college who writes lip gloss reviews for a living. My point is that being a writer can mean a wide variety of things, and this week, for me, it meant getting in touch with male porn stars. Or rather, trying and mostly failing to get in touch with male porn stars.

The story started as all good stories do: With a penis. Surely you’ve heard the saying that you can judge a penis just by looking at the feet. Well, the other day I was sitting around bored and aimless, trying to decide what to write, when I started thinking about penises. This happens often, but on this specific occasion, the penises I’d started thinking about were The Penises That I Have Known. (I used CAPS just then because when you write about The Penises That You Have Known, it is important to be respectful.) Anyway, there I was thinking about The Penises That I Have Known, and as I continued thinking about them, I wondered if maybe there wasn’t a story there, a story in investigating whether the saying is true.

Alas: Although I could bring to mind the penises, I couldn’t remember the feet. It occurred to me then that thing to do would be to prove/disprove the idea, not with reference to my own experience, but by using male porn stars. Their penises are available to view, of course, so all I’d have to do was find the shoe size. Keep reading »

Science! It’s pretty crazy, right? Like how about this guy who John Millward, who devoted countless hours to a new study on finding the perfect porn star. That’s right: Millward’s study “Deep Inside” (hahahah you so funny) studied more than 10,000 porn stars and their careers in order to come up with the “ideal” porn star.

Millward went through every listing in the Adult Film Database to attempt to suss out patterns and preferences among porn stars. “I was able to scrutinize adult performers in a way no man, despite regular attempts to do so, had ever managed before, and find out once and for all which stereotypes about porn stars are true, which are bogus, and what these men and women have been doing for the last forty years,” said Millward.

What did he find? Keep reading »

Porn Stars Have Higher Self-Esteem Than You

Just when you thought you’ve heard everything, a new study published in the Journal of Sex Research finds that adult film actresses report higher levels of confidence and self-esteem than your average woman. If this news seems a little hard to swallow (sorry, we went there), it’s because it is.

Until now, it’s been a pretty widely held belief that adult film actresses are emotionally damaged — the product of childhood sexual abuse, among other horrible things. But research conducted on 177 porn actresses and a control group of women with similar socioeconomic backgrounds suggests otherwise. Read more…

Confession: I Have A Favorite Male Porn Star And His Name Is Manuel Ferrara

I am a gal who enjoys watching porn. I have since I was a teen and used to put my ear up to the television speaker, volume real low so my parents couldn’t hear, listening to the moans and groans coming from the picture garbled Spice Channel. Nowadays, I get my porn for free online; I’m usually pretty whatever about what I watch — I click around until I find something that strikes me as hot (the actors or “real people” seem genuine, there isn’t a lot of annoying storyline, etc.) and hunker down for 5-10 minutes of self-lovin’. Until recently, I hadn’t really understood the notion of having a favorite porn star. With so many porn videos available on the web, how do you even keep track of who’s who? And, really, porn stars have never struck me as particularly compelling, especially the male stars, many of whom are really, really unattractive, their only attributes being, well, you know. 

That is, however, until I came across Manuel Ferrara. Keep reading »

6 Pioneering Female Porn Stars

Among life’s many distinctions, there is one that is a truly elite club that many of us will only dream of joining: the first porn start to do ___.  Somebody has to be the first — think about i! Last we learned that “erotic actress” Sylvia Kristel, who appeared in the 1974 French film “Emmanuelle,” had died of cancer at age 60. She wasn’t just any “erotic actress,” though: Sylvia Kristel was heralded by none other than People magazine as “arguably the world’s first true porn star.” “Emmanuelle” is about the wife of a diplomat living in Bangkok and their many affairs and was one of the first films with sex in it to be shown in mainstream theaters.

So that got us thinking: which other pioneering porn stars deserve our accolades?

President Bill Clinton co-hosted a party with Prince Albert of Monaco and took a photograph with three beautiful young women.

Those women just happened to be porn stars. According to The Atlantic Wire, one woman is Brooklyn Lee, who appeared in the porn flick “Secretaries 4″; another is Tasha Reign, who appeared in “Farm Girls Gone Bad”; and the third woman has been identified as someone named Jennifer Taule. Everyone from Page Six to the UK’s Daily Mail is falling over themselves over “Bubba and the porn babes.”
