Yesterday, I had the opportunity to meet Lynn Vega(@Lynnvegaxxx) on set of a girl-girl content shoot. She is a tiny little thing who entered the adult industry as a webcam model in 2013. With a BA in early childhood education the adult industry is not somewhere I would expect to find her.
At the 2015 AE Expo in Las Vegas, Lynn Vega was discovered. Out of the thousands of beautiful women walking the convention floors of the Hard Rock Hotel, she was picked out of the crowds by Girlfriend Films(@GF_Films) to do a girl-girl scene. The next month, Lynn Vega made her way to Los Angeles to do her first girl-girl scene and her entrance into the adult film industry was made. This is the most graceful entrance I have heard. Especially because after Lynn did her first scene she took a six month break from shooting to see if adult films were really for her.
Now two years later Lynn has established herself in the adult industry and continues to search for her niche. Although, she did mention how her Skype dates and custom videos keep her pretty busy. Lynn pushes the boundaries on being a virtual girlfriend. She had me blushing with her creativity and use of technology.
Check out her website and taste a little of what she has to offer.
On a Thursday afternoon I made my way to a girl-girl content shoot here in Las Vegas. Rarely do I get the luxury of interacting with the people I write about in person, days like this are the fun exceptions to the rule of my normal writing life. However unproductive and shocking it sounds, I get the best interviews when I go behind the scenes. Does it make my insides uncomfortable? Yes! However, it is not because I do not appreciate their art. They are just people and I do not want to sexualize them. My job is merely to report the facts. Clear boundaries in any career in the adult are a vital must. So I packed up my boundaries and computer and made my way to meet some amazing ladies.

The product I enjoyed the most out of my Strip Club Journals care package was “Jesus Loves Porn Stars”. I felt like I could really relate to this little book, being in the performance industry. I am a dancer in the Portland, Oregon and there still are very judgmental people in this area. In my opinion, we should all be treated equal and stick together no matter what your job or occupation is. In this tiny book, it expresses the bible in a different ways and outlooks than the typical person would we read in a typical church. It opens up our eyes to a new era of people and the society we live in.
In a world with so many stereotypes about cultures and industries we work in, the performance industry can feel left out at times. We all suffer and go thru hard times, but this little book reassures me there is always hope and guidance somewhere out there to be found. I really liked how it had mini stories throughout the book about real life people: escorts, porn stars and even Ron Jeremy at the end.
Leaders in the church community before have personally tried to make me feel bad about what I do, but this book helps overcome that fear of judgmental people. The stories in “Jesus Loves Porn Stars” are uplifting and I would highly recommend this book to a friend or coworker.
It is that time of year again! The Gentleman’s Club Expo is coming to Las Vegas and so are the Exotic Dancer Awards. As the summer heats up in the desert, we wait anxiously to see the outcome of the next week of voting.
Janine Jericho is up for International Showgirl Of The Year. I have to kindly ask all my readers to vote for Janine Jericho. She is an amazing woman who inspires so many people within the adult industry.

Rarely do people speak of life after a career in the adult industry. Dealing with people and society after leaving a taboo career behind is the largest barrier. Ironically most people would think the actual sex work to be the difficult part, but no. The difficult part is existing in a society that is sexually unaware and so they love to hate us.
There is a moment in every adult industry members’ career where you realize your fans are not going to be your support system for your “real life”. This may sound silly, but these are the fans you paint a smile on for and go above and beyond to make your performance the best possible every time. Whether it be on stage, on set, or on the business end of your performance oriented career there will always be someone who is a fan. Yet not all fans value your work and/or career, because they can only dream and fantasize about living such a life.
Crystal Rayne is a recovering sex worker who is struggling currently with her transition back into civilian society.
I am writing this because I am in serious need of help and this is a very urgent situation. My name is Crystal but y’all know me as Crystal Rayne a former Adult Film Actress and Feature Entertainer. I have been in this type of industry for about 12 years and yes it was very exciting fast paced life good money and meeting and hanging out with different friends well that was the good life that I used to have not having to worry about my bills being late they were always on time and not having to worry about having a roof over my head like I am really worried about at the moment…… this is my story. After I had the fast life going for me I stopped for a while because I wanted to be around my kids more because I have always missed them when I was traveling and wanted to be a stay at home mom for a while so I did I stayed at home with my babies and everything seemed so perfect until I got a last-minute notice the landlord told me that she had sold her house and that I had to be out in a few days I begged her to let me stay because I have kids and that this is not right!!!! You would think that she would understand and find it within her heart to let us stay for at least another week but nope that was not happening……..so now we have no place to go I’ve tried friends and family and no one will help me because of what I used to do for my work I am considered the black sheep of my family and that really hurts. I’ve been trying to call around and ask people I know if I could stay with them and nothing. I don’t want anyone to pity for my situation but I’m praying to God that by some miraculous miracle that my kids and I will get some help and be able to have a place we call home again……I am truly embarrassed by asking for help but at this point we have nothing and I really need the help. I am a very clean woman never ever done drugs in my life or favored alcohol that’s not my cup of tea. I’m a very good mom I’ve always done everything for my kids and made sure they always had what they needed. Again I’m embarrassed by asking for help but at this point I have no other choice. Also I have been working but work has slowed down a lot and I only have enough for gas in my truck and food in my babies mouths which is very important. I hope this finds a way to all of your hearts because my kids and I really need a home God Bless and thank you for every donation it’s greatly appreciated and helps.
