Ryan Driller-AEE 2016

@RyanDriller & @ZiFiStripClub

Early in the morning one day at the AEE 2016 Expo, I literally ran into Ryan Driller with my coffee in hand. Still in the daze of the unusual morning hours and hair and makeup routine the rest of the crew did not have to go through, I was not quite all there I have to admit. But I was pushed in the right direction literally and ran into Ryan Driller who was kind enough to take time to speak with Strip Club Journals and Adventures of the Mayor.

Half asleep and still in my morning daze I had a conversation with Ryan Driller that was supposed to be an interview, but it ended up to be more like a conversation. He has a way of putting people at ease while being charismatic. This was extremely surprising and took me aback, setting him apart from the rest. We joked about what it was like to be “kind of a big deal” and Ryan shared stories of excited fans in the grocery stores. Those being his most uncomfortable fan experiences.

In person I was impressed with Ryan Driller. Not only did he seem to have his career on a path and longevity in the adult film industry, but he willingly shared charisma with a genuine smile. This was his eighth AVN Awards, so this was nothing new to him. Little did I know what a big deal Ryan Driller is in the adult film industry. Unplanned interviews are always the best and most organic.

Ryan Driller left me with a good feeling about the adult film industry. We had a kind, genuine, educated exchange even though I had no clue who Ryan Driller was. This made the interaction genuine. Had I known all I know now I would have been really nervous to speak with Ryan Driller, let alone interview him. He was just a guy and I was just happy I did not spill my coffee on him. At times being a small town girl at heart really does blow my mind(pun intended).

Now after research, I realize the unique journey Ryan Driller/Jeremy Bilding has taken through the adult film industry. Never did he lead on to how large his accomplishments are. He is a humble person, which made him approachable. In person I was beyond impressed with him in so many ways. Little did I know by researching and talking to people I would find out what a fancy person Ryan Driller is in the adult film industry. He has evolved through the industry from someone who did gay porn and straight porn. Then did a total cross over into mainstream adult films. He even took a pay cut to be the first successful male cross over in the adult film industry(straight men get paid less than gay men in the adult film industry). This was something I could respect, setting boundaries even though they have a literal monetary price tag. This is a reoccurring theme throughout the adult industry that cannot seem to be fathomed by the “real world”.

In person Ryan Driller told me that separation of work and real life is just that, “It’s Work, It’s work,” he said with a nonchalant look on his face like he was a garbage man speaking of work.

From Denver, Colorado originally Ryan Driller seems like the cute guy who lives down the street. It is no wonder why women hassle him at the grocery store. His personality matches his good looks and he has the “it” factor that can make or break an entertainer of any kind.

With coffee in hand it was a pleasant surprise to start a day at the AEE 2016 Interacting with Ryan Driller.

AVN 2016 Prep(Part 1 Unedited)

AVN 2015
AVN 2015 Page 1

As of the new year my preparations for the AVN Expo 2016 began. Most of us in the adult entertainment industry fill out our applications for passes months in advance. However, the Real planning does not start till the magic email arrives allowing access to all the places people really want to be within the AVN Expo/Awards.

Most people spend January starting their new year, however in the adult entertainment industry February is when our year really starts. We are in full force career mode while the rest of the world sits back with their New Year’s resolutions and begins planing for Valentine’s Day. The last thing on our minds is romance and quality time with our loved ones. Weekends and Holidays off are not a luxury the best of the best will ever most likely experience in the adult entertainment industry, unless they already put in their time traveling the nation and the world to win awards and gain followers and fans. Success equates to traveling in the adult entertainment industry. It is a necessary evil after a while, but to be the best of the best there are always sacrifices to be made.

“Even though I was in a serious relationship at one point in my life my job ensured I was never home to celebrate it.” ~ Miss Nude Canada(@JusticeofVan)

“The only relationship that’s worked since I’ve been in the industry is the one I have with myself.” ~ Cali Rose(@CaliRosexoxo)

In January every year the best of the best of the adult film industry gather to network and socialize by design in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 1984 the AVN Awards started and now over thirty years later they are an event attracting people worldwide. Often the AVN Awards are referred to as the “Oscars of porn”. Connecting with the people who will aid in setting the tone for our careers for 2016 has to happen in less than 72 hours. Can you even imagine the intense pressure and excitement?

AVNs 2015 was my first year attending as press. I went with no real expectation other than a fun trip to my home away from home and one good magazine column. Opportunities just magically presented themselves as if by design. Therefore, jumping in the deep end last year paid off greatly.

“It(the adult entertainment industry) opens doors no other industry can.” ~Dominic DiLorenzo(@WEARE321LLC & @FlyntDominic)

Enrique Arellano(@EAFLOWS), host of Adventures Of The Mayor, was an amazing find last year at the 2015 AVN Expo. Enrique and I teamed up in order to cover more ground. Nothing is more exciting and confusing at the same time as multiple large hotel conference rooms filled with colorful porn stars, webcam models, adult toys, and much more. Our two styles and platforms mixed well, allowing us to interview as many fancy people as time and space allowed.

So many bucket list experiences and firsts were a bit overwhelming, but great fun meeting new people and working at the same time. Demon Seed Radio(@demonseed69) pulled both Enrique and I out of the crowds to interview at their booth at AVN Expo live. The host had read my blog(www.StripClubJournals.com) and also heard Enrique’s radio show(www.TheMayorsClub.com). The adult entertainment industry is a small world, especially at the AVNs. Interacting with people who are so known in a taboo industry is an extremely rare opportunity.

“I did not realize how big of a deal some of these up and comers really are globally, even at an infant stage of their careers.” ~Enrique Arellano(@EAFLOWS)

This year I know what to expect from the AVNs and what to prepare for, as much as one can prepare for the madness of an adult industry event/gathering. Realizing the residual effects of less than 72 hours on anyone’s career is exponential and thus overwhelming. Imagine the stress of being an adult actor or actress, let alone a nominee for an award, to make the most of these three days. After parties and networking are not merely perks, but career necessities in order to meet like-minded individuals in such a diverse industry with so many drastically different niches.

This year the Adult Webcam Awards(@AdultCamAwards) are being added into the mix. This will be the first year for this worldwide event and it is the same week as the AVN Awards/Expo in Las Vegas. What I will find there? I have no clue, but I do see the value in attending, because the internet is a powerful tool; even the adult film industry actors and actresses utilize the internet. So this may be the adult industry of the future and/or the here and now.

“I really enjoy the convenience of camming. All the money-none of the drama. I like that idea!… Web camming is the exotic dancing of the future.” ~Paige(@AthenaEterna)

As the January winter days go by faster and faster the whirlwind becomes almost a tornado of excitement, nerves, and logistics. January is a frenzy of artists in the adult entertainment industry making the most of the logistics of their career(we are mostly our own bosses). These logistics enable us to continue creating the life we live and love. Just because someone is known worldwide for being in a taboo industry does not make them a “bad person”. There really is no demographic to group us all together other than art and passion. We all see creating something as part of our purpose in life.

Whenever you can be surrounded by the best of the best of any industry there is something to be learned.

Strip Club Journals Unbound Sept-Adulted Nationwide

The VIP Exclusive Fashion Show(http://www.vip-exclusive.org) was held in Tampa, Florida on July 25th. This event was designed for the enjoyment of all by the owner: Terrance Shaw(@Vip_Exclusive). Terrance chose to incorporate all different styles of designers, models, and different types of entertainment than one would normally expect at the average fashion show. This added to the creativity and excitement of the event. Also, specifically the models themselves were of all types:  Short, Tall and Petite. The message Terrance delivered to the audience was, “Dreams can come True!” He started the show off with a very powerful quote by a designer from the VIP Exclusive Fashion Show in Tampa, David President, who has an enlightening story behind his line.

“Walk by faith not by sight.” ~David President.

U.S. Gold and Silver Inc.(http://www.usgoldandsilver.org) sponsored VIP Exclusive Fashion Show in Tampa. Joseph Rainier, CEO of U.S. Gold and Silver, attended the event as an active title sponsor and provided two rings to be awarded to the winners. He takes part in sponsoring events like these, “…to help charities and advance careers of models and designers.” The opportunities at the VIP Exclusive Fashion Shows are also there by design.

“We are known for connecting businesses and models with new opportunities at our events.” ~Terrance Shaw

Terrance Shaw’s willingness to work with a dynamic mixture of models and sponsors creates a melting pot of opportunities. If you are looking for an opportunity to grow and appreciate the beauty in the world, whether a model, designer, or sponsor contact VIP Exclusive Fashion(info@vip-exclusive.com). They hold fashion shows nationwide with upcoming fashion shows soon to be held in Virginia and New York.

The last thing I expected to see at VIP Exclusive Fashion Show in Tampa, Florida was an amazing pole dancer and singer duo. Jacqueline Valdez(@ElegantJacqueline) and Jason Rex began the fashion show setting the tone for the event. Jacqueline Valdez elegantly worked the pole and floor while Jason Rex, a power vocalist, expressed his passion and emotion through song. This dynamic duo was much unexpected. However, it did add to the buzz and excitement of VIP Exclusive Fashion Show, just as Terrance Shaw had anticipated and planned.

Jacqueline Valdez and Jason Rex combined their talents to create Infusion Remax(@InfusionRemax). They have much success to come in their near future with blossoming talent and career minds. Look for them to appear in Vegas soon. They are such a unique collaboration. The talent they have is powerfully raw, rare, and yet amazingly harnessed.

This was the beginning of my adventures for my September column of Strip Club Journals Unbound. I had thought this was going to be my jump into mainstream media. However once I arrived at the fashion show, after an extremely long airport day(DO NOT FLY @AmericanAir & @USAirways #MergerGoneWrong), I realized the need mainstream society has to resemble the adult industry to varying degrees, to which they deem to be acceptable. Everyone wants to feel special and/or fancy. The mainstream just has glamorous misconceptions of the adult/entertainment industry and the lives we actually lead and/or live.

These delusions were put quickly to rest when I traveled back to Oregon to cover the Vagina Beauty Pageant. Add the word vagina to an adult industry event and all of a sudden the glamour is completely taken away. Perhaps, that is how we adult industry people weed the mainstream from some events. Knowing that in doing so it will be a liberal freedom enhancing experience, rather than a shameful experience one must recover from.

Dick Hennessy(@DJDickHennessy) created The Vagina Beauty Pageant six years ago. The name of the pageant alone has given it a stigma that probably makes many national and international writers anxious to touch due to its nature and subject matter. However, this is exactly the kind of event I look for in the adult industry. “Controversy causes readership,” is my motto and going out of my own comfort zone makes me grow as an individual, so this was a win-win situation. I even had to go out of my own comfort zone for this one, a rarity with my own background in the adult industry.

“The fact that I get paid for one of my passions in life is amazing to me.” ~Noel(Eugene, Oregon)

The Vagina Beauty Pageant allowed me to reconnect with some of the strippers I met when I entered the adult industry in small town Oregon. Reconnecting with my roots also made me face just how liberal Oregon remains. The one thing I learned going to one preliminary round and the finale of the Vagina Beauty Pageant was that the first amendment gives women in Oregon strip clubs the right to insert things into themselves. This is a random fact that was burned into my eyes and soul to be remembered forever.

The adult industry never stops amazing me. Yes it is amazing to be a part of it all, but there will always be moments where the adult industry shocks everyone merely by design and nature.
