Revisiting “Fashionistas 2″ with Sasha Grey

Posted on June 4th, 2008 in Adult Movie Awards,fetish,Hardcore,Porn Movies,Porn People by Gram

Fashionistas 2 and Sasha GreySasha Grey‘s first porn scene determined the rest of her adult career.

“If I didn’t do ‘Fashionistas 2‘ I wouldn’t have had the hype – for better or for worse – that I’ve had since the beginning,” she said.

Grey’s first partner was Rocco Siffredi and her first director was the equally legendary John Stagliano, considered by many to be porn’s truly visionary filmmaker.

Grey researched her options for eight months before entering porn, and recalled that her agent at the time, Mark Spiegler, said after a Stagliano scene “everything you do from here is downhill.”

“He said I’d started with the best,” Grey said.

“To start your career with Belladonna and Katsumi is an honor,” AVN’s 2007 Performer of the Year said.

Are you ready for the Summer Slowdown?

Most (if not all) of the big movies that will compete for January’s AVN awards have already been filmed in anticipation of the San Fernando Valley’s cruel, cruel summer. “Pirates II” just wrapped and is in the early stages of its massive (for porn) post-production and Adam & Eve has three contenders in the works, “Rollerdollz” (pictured) and the “Indiana Jones” pornody (I just invented that word) “Carolina Jones,” not to mention “Dark City.”

Traditionally the big studios slow down production in the summer for two big reasons: sales are usually down in California stores and e-tailers due to the heat and, also due to the heat, shooting is sometimes unbearable.

That is not to say shooting is not done in the Valley in summer, and that people don’t work hard. Last July Jack Lawrence shot a movie in Woodland Hills on the hottest day of the year. “The temperature was 119 degrees,” he said. “Evan Stone put on a fig leaf and climbed through the trees to entertain the people fucking outside.”

This is how you know that porn is a job – people who are already fucking still need to be entertained.

Hustler’s “Night Shift Nurses – Escort Service” was filmed on the hottest day of 2006. I was there that day, and people were sticking to the surfaces they were getting mounted on, like fleshy museum exhibits. It almost put me off porn.

Another practical reason for a summer slowdown is AVN. The deadline for submitting films for AVN nominations is the last day of September, so savvy companies get their principal photography done early.

That is not to say that people don’t get things done at the last minute. One future-themed movie that picked up a lot of AVN awards this year was delivered to AVN at about 3 p.m. on the day of the deadline, having been overnighted back and forth from New York to the San Fernando Valley for processing.

So as you peruse Gamelink’s massive libraries (and jugs) for movie choices, keep in mind during the coming heat wave and rolling blackouts that porn stars have sex early and often so that when they collapse, exhausted, you’ll be ready to go.

Gamelink Red Carpet: Jenny Hendrix off the Shoulder, Grid

Posted on January 21st, 2008 in Adult Industry Events,Adult Industry News,Adult Movie Awards by Gram

Jenny HendrixOne of our favorite performers is Jenny Hendrix, and not just because she makes us drinks. We talked with her at the AVN Awards red carpet and were surprised that she didn’t have any of her several personal communication devices. In fact, it appears from this photo that she had no place to put them.

Alas, Hendrix wore clothes (not that she’s not perfectly comfortable doing otherwise), but the ass-tastic workaholic kept her several phones in her purse4 for the walk down the carpet.

“I didn’t want to be checking my MySpace at just this moment,” she said. “I’m going to wait until I get to my seat.”
