The release of “Pee-Wee’s XXX Adventure: A Porn Parody,” means it’s officially time to throw a funeral for my innocence. Just when we were all starting to forget about Paul Reubens’ movie theater incident, Vivid Entertainment had to ruin it all. I mean, he had a Broadway show! He was a guest on “Top Chef”! Particularly scarring is the fact that “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” was the movie I showed at my nine-year-old sleepover birthday party. The one where I cried myself to sleep because someone was being mean. Wait, I am describing every slumber party. Has the porn industry no respect for my childhood wounds? Excuse me while I gauge me eyes out. [Best Week Ever]
“There’s this experience I have repeatedly which is so symbolic. I work for this big company, Vivid Entertainment, and you walk in the second floor, the editing suite, and there are anywhere between five and eight men, sitting in front of computer screens, watching naked women have sex. I am the only woman in the room, and I am the only woman with clothes on. And that sort of says it all, right? I’m interrupting this hetero-normative male-dominated space. All of a sudden I show up, and all the women they’ve been interacting with for the past eight hours have been naked and moaning and I am not doing either of those things! So I feel like it’s symbolic of the industry, because, in fact, I am a total minority as a woman, and even more so as an out queer woman and as an out feminist. Ultimately, the people who are in my bubble, my production crew, the performers that I work with, everyone at Vivid, is 100 percent awesome; they really support my work, they believe in it, they get it, if they don’t get it, they trust me enough to go do what I want to do.”
— Feminist pornographer Tristan Taormino (also the author of The Ultimate Guide To Anal Sex For Women, amongst other books!) on what it’s like to be a woman who makes pornography in a male-dominated industry. Vivid Entertainment is the same company that offered big bucks to royal embarrassments Pippa and James Middleton and the woman with two vaginas — so it may not the classiest company out there, but at least they’re evolved enough to have hired a sex-positive feminist with a decent idea what other people —women, who’ve have thunk? — want from their porn.

You will probably remember the name Hazel Jones. She’s the woman we told you about with the two vaginas. Ah, now you remember. We had a running bet going about how long it would be before she was offered the big bucks to star in a porno. One week. That’s all it took. The 27-year-old has received a million dollar offer from Vivid Entertainment to share her services. That’s a half a mil for the vaginas to split evenly! I doubt she’ll say yes — she seems like a proper gal — but if she does, they will have a lot of fun coming up with a title. “A Tale Of Two Vaginas”? I’m not good at this. Add your suggestions in the comments. [Film Drunk]
The world was thoroughly enchanted with Pippa Middleton‘s butt in her white maid-of-honor dress at Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s wedding. And naturally, people want to see more of her … body. Vivid Entertainment has apparently offered Pippa $5 million to shoot a single explicit scene in a porno. Vivid president Steven Hirsh says he was even more enticed by Pippa after seeing the “Girls Gone Wild”-ish photo of her dancing in her bra with an equally drunk, undressed chap. “After seeing photos of you having a great time at a party, I decided to offer you a role in one of our upcoming movies,” Hirsch wrote.
Apparently, James Middleton’s nude photos have also netted him a porno offer. Keep reading »
