Joanna Angel

Joanna Angel is the queen of alt pornography. With hot pink streaks through her raven hair and a petite frame adorned with colorful tattoos, the Brooklyn native “punk princess” of porn created her production company, Burning Angel, shortly after graduating from Rutgers University with degrees in literature and film. This time of year, Joanna is a busy bee. Burning Angel was nominated for numerous awards at this weekend’s AVN Awards, she has movies to make, a Fleshlight to promote, and most recently, she inked an exclusive deal with LA-based sex toy and bondage boutique the Stockroom for her new line of BDSM sex toys.

The Soapbox: On Sex Addiction, Sex Work & The Wall Street Intern Who Quit Her Job To Pursue Porn

The Soapbox: On Sex Addiction, Sex Work & The Wall Street Intern Who Quit Her Job To Pursue Porn

Last week, a Wall Street intern quit her job to pursue porn. Paige Jennings, who goes by Veronica Vain, was working at an Lazard’s alternative-investments marketing group in New York when she “quit [Wall Street] before it fired me” (according to her Twitter page) after it was discovered she was tweeting nude selfies from inside the bathroom of Lazard’s offices.

I worked in the sex industry on and off through college as a stripper, and then later for a stint as a call girl, selling myself as a non pro on Craigslist and performing what amounted to “the Girlfriend Experience.” When I lost my job as a public school teacher after it was discovered I was writing and speaking openly about my past, I argued — as Jennings does so articulately in this interview — that sexy and serious needn’t be mutually exclusive, and that women have the right to do what they want with their bodies, and not be shamed for the choices they make.

My participation in the sex industry was my choice— and I defend a woman’s right to make that choice. That said, I think it’s fair to critically examine people’s choices, just as I’ve learned to critically examine my own. Keep reading »

Here's What To Expect From Porn In 2015

PornHub published its 2014 yearly review this week, and it was full of illuminating statistics about what exactly the world gets off to. PornHub analyzed the most popular search terms, countrywide porn statistics, most popular porn stars, the viewing habits of men vs. women, which world events impacted PornHub’s traffic, and even which countries’ viewers last the longest. The data was also used to come up with predictions of what porn trends to anticipate in 2015. Sigh, where would this world be without someone to keep track of these oh-so-important factoids?

Coming In 2015: “The Interview” Porn Parody

Coming In 2015: "The Interview" Porn Parody

Nothing screams freedom of speech like a good ol’ American parody porn film. Hustler boss Larry Flynt announced that he’s producing a parody version of ‘The Interview’ as a response to the film being pulled from theaters amid threats by hackers linked to North Korea.

Sony’s move was criticized by President Barack Obama, as well as Hollywood A-listers like George Clooney and Sean Penn. But Hustler Video is not backing down. The parody, which is titled “This Ain’t The Interview XXX,” will be released first quarter of 2015. Read more on Huffington Post Weird News…

Representation In Porn, Or A Lack Thereof, And Why It Matters

Have you ever wondered what racial representation looks like in porn versus the United States population? Well, I have.

I get tired of conventional porn sometimes, and I want to see porn with women especially, but people in general, who aren’t going “ooohnnnn ooohhhhhnnn ohhhhhnnn” like seals throughout the movie, or who aren’t skinny, or who aren’t young, or who aren’t white, or who aren’t conventional-looking, or who are engaging in sex acts that they really, really, really love of their own accord rather than being just sort of down to do because it’s their job. That’s why I love Beautiful Agony (just assume that none of the links in this post are safe for work) — it’s all orgasms, it’s all very understated, it’s a pure celebration of pleasure, and lots of different kinds of people are represented. It’s also why I love the Art-Porn Tumblr: there’s at least some diversity, there’s a lot of kink — real kink — and many of the photographers and directors portray sex in a way that doesn’t feel so … I don’t know. Gratuitous. There’s nothing wrong with gratuitous, conventional porn, of course, I just get tired of it. It’s made for a male audience, and I’m not male. I want to see something different.
