on a serious note, is there any kind of living to be made in the porn industry purely on the business end? could I possibly be successful without ever having to be on camera and/or go to all the creepy industry coke parties in the hills?

Almost missed this one...

There are no coke parties in the hills.

There are loads of successful business men in this industry. Look at the owner of Manwin, which is the parent company of Brazzers. They also own Digital Playground, Twistys, Playboys TV and Web, and are currently trying to buy RK and Bangbros.

Fabian (the owner) has ever stepped on a porn set in his life. He doesn't care about the porn aspect. He cares about the business aspect and how to absorb companies and turn that into profit. But, Fabian has always been involved in the industry so he understands so many detailed aspects. I think it is difficult coming from the outside and being successful.

Well people jerk off often to the stuff that bothers them. It is similar to how men will be overly homophobic, but underneath it all secretly want a gay experience.

There used to be a time when the most selling porn in the US was gay movies and TS movies. That give us all an insight into what is actually going on in people's heads.

I don't want to shit up your awesome OT fellowship thread but this kind of freudian stuff is a joke

Luci Thai is my favorite porn star...
ever work with her or know anything about her personally ?

Thanks for the thread, btw !

I shot Luci many years ago. I have no idea what she does these days. I haven't seen her in years. I don't remember anything about her personally. At least nothing I really remember.

Not sure if it's been asked... but what made you choose porn and what avenues did you take to get there?

Mitt Romney got me into porn. It is a long story...

When I was 18 years old I worked for a chain of mom and pop video stores. The owner noticed I was completely comfortable working around porn and offered me to work in his porn shop. From there I learned a good deal about the industry via the trade magazines and also from just dealing with stocking and helping him run the shop.

I left the job after moving to a better college and left the area. I didn't think much of it at the time, but ended up being in a large college (UMASS Amherst) at the right time. That was basically the birth of the modern Internet. Originally I was active on private BBS boards, but then moved into Usenet, IRC, those early FTP sites and Gopher for those that remember Gopher. Then my buddy brought me over the pre release of Netscape. I got really into the web. Initially I made early websites dedicated to Mortal Kombat because I was a rabid MK fan. After I made my MK fan site and was sort of successful with it, I began to think about porn on the web.

I started taking very amateur shots of my girl at the time. It just then sort of lined up and she wanted to get into stripping. The photos I took of her got more racy. Then credit cards started being taken online. I then convinced her to do an amateur site. A buddy and I sent weeks setting up credit card processing with Ibill, which was the first third party CC processor. The site was very successful. I was literally running it out of my dorm room.

I eventually got a job at my college that lead to me eventually working my way to being a UNIX SysAdmin. Did that for awhile, but semi secretly was basically running this little amateur porn business. I then started doing shooting legit pornstars feature dancing at clubs and selling the photos to these little rags that they have at strip clubs. That led me to meet some of the biggest girls in the industry. Jenna Jameson, Kobi Tai, etc. I was also being sent to CES because of my day job, but was spend most of my time on the adult side at that convention making connections.

Mitt Romney was the Governor of MA at the time I was working at Umass. He gutted the funding to UMASS and the school at a massive budget deficit. They had to possibly lay off people, so the union worked this deal out where they offered voluntary lay offs. In turn you would get a year of unemployment. I realized I was at crossroads and this might be my only chance in life to really make a massively change to it. I was still fairly young. I had also grown very disillusioned working for Umass. I took the voluntary lay off. I used that money and the unemployment to move to California and pursue shooting full time.

It was extremely rough at first. After months of being in LA I got worried I was going to have to go back home. Even with the money I had saved and the money I was making from unemployment, LA is a price play to live and survive. But I stuck to it and the eventual saving moment was a chance encounter I had with Joey Silvera that led to a very long a great mentoring experience where I was his on set set assistant. From there it just got better and better and here I am.



Also, how much do you make a year? Does pirating really fuck you over?

I personally on paper dont' make a ton. Instead I run everything through my corp as much as I can, since everything I do goes back to my business. The business make ok money. I am far from a millionaire. If i never had to buy equipment I would probably be considered rich, but I can't make any money without the equipment so the equipment purchases are required.

The product I produce on my own it certainly fucks me over. If someone can get it for free why ever pay for it. Between the recession and the rampant piracy, it has greatly stunted the industry.

How often have you shot Lily Carter? Does she really cum that hard or is that for show?

EDIT: Just tell me as much as you can about Lily Carter. Absolutely love that girl.

Lily is astounding. She is a true nympho. Absolutely loves sex. She is incredibly fun to shoot and always just down for whatever. I just did a scene with her for my latest spandex themed release. I will have to post a couple out takes with her. She just wants to keep going and if you fuck at the right angle with the right rhythm then she will just unload and squirt everywhere.

Other interesting facts. She is super tiny. Like 5'1 maybe? She only comes up to my chest. I have a feeling she will become down the road one of the more known performers.

What about the X-Art guy?


And what does "dv8" stem from?

Lettuce discuss X Art, which seems to be all the rage.

X art was created by a woman. I believe it is this guys wife. I know it is a husband and wife team that helped create the site. They only recently got married. I know sometimes she shoots photos of the models as well.

The guy on the site they refer to as Mr. X, is their former yoga instructor.

The creators of the site had money before they got into the industry. I am not exactly sure where that money came from.

They mostly shoot adult talent from Prague. Nearly all their big girls, Erica Fontes, Caprice, etc etc are all from that area. They also mix in american girls too: Tiffany Thompson, Lexi Belle, Jessie Rogers, Shyla Jennings, lily labeau, etc. They book a mix of girls, both american and euro and fly them to a tropical location and shoot the content over several days.

Euro girls can be hard to shoot. While they do "wilder" sex scenes then their American counterparts, American girls are universally the top draw. Very very few Euro girls have any name recognition. Jenna Haze, Lexi Belle, Sasha Grey, Tori Black and girls like that are globally known. Euro girls are colder and more removed from the process. With an American girl you might cut or have a break, she generally keeps fucking or helps her partner in the scene out with keep his erection. She really likes sex. When you shoot Euro performers you cut the sex and they literally walk away and when you start to roll video again, your dick better be hard, because they are not helping you. American girls have the luxury to choose to do porn. Euro girls sometimes literally have no other choice or their family is going to starve to death.

Some of the euro girls are astoundingly sexy, but not always very good performers. It is crazy how pretty they are, but then you start shooting them and it is such a bummer because some of them are the kings of over acting.

Porn is cyclical. X Art existed many years ago. His name is Andrew Black and he basically did the same concept. Only shot the absolutely most beautiful girls over in Europe mostly and craved out a very specific look, with a special camera setup (in his case 16mm) that was highly stylized and more erotic then porn.

The main issue comes down to can X Art survive. Everyone loves them on here. Is anyone paying for it on here? There is a reality to doing business and they are going to have major competition in a couple months because every company is going to compete with them. Hell I already shot three scenes for a company called Zen Erotica, that are exactly the same as X art in everywhere. I am going to europe and shooting their exact same girls. I found them all. Found their agents and have it ready to go whenever I finally get to Prague. Looming over all of this is Brazzers, who are soon to unleash their own high end erotica scenes. Brazzers doesn't make the best content on the web, but they have shown they can literally crush anyone simply because they have the traffic and cash to do so.

This is why it is important to support with your own money the things you like. If you don't then it could be eventually fade or be driven away.

this is very insightful. :eek3:

And i'd imagine the Euro girls are quite cold, at least thats the perspective I get from some of the vids i've seen. Terrible acting, and not really into the sex like US girls...

However, every one of them could be a Victoria's Secret model.
:wackit::bowdown:

Walking around in Prague was like a kid in a candy store. Sooo many impossibly attractive girls running around.

:bowdown: ANYTHING you have on Lily, post it up! I'd love to see some behind the scenes or outtakes with her.

Does she have trouble walking after cumming that hard on a scene? I always find that amusing in my personal life. :mamoru:
