AEE 2016-Strip Club Journals Unbound (Unedited)

Early one morning at the AEE 2016 Expo, I literally ran into Ryan Driller(@RyanDriller) with my coffee in hand. Still in the daze of 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.

Half asleep and in my morning daze I had a conversation with Ryan Driller that was supposed to be an interview, but ended up to be more like a conversation. He has a way of putting people at ease while being charismatic at the same time. 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 grocery stores. Those being his most uncomfortable fan experiences.

In person I was impressed with Ryan Driller. Not only did he 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 Expo/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 he was. 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 to not have spilled 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 in person 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.

Another “morning” at the AEE 2016 again with my coffee in hand I stumbled upon another amazing interview:  Lexington Steele(@LexSteele11 & http://www.LexingtonSteele.com). He has been in the industry for nearly 20 years and was someone I had never heard of before we met at AEE 2016. The theme of longevity in the adult industry film industry seemed to naturally create itself merely through interactions.

Lexington Steele was kind and even pulled out a chair for me so we could sit and have a conversation on the edge of the buzzing crowd full of press and fans. By the crowd, I could tell I found a gem. My first question(as usual), “Is this your first year at the AVN Expo?” He politely answered, “No, this is my 18th AVN Expo/Awards.” At this point I knew he was the one I could ask my real open-ended questions to as to what it is really like to be an adult film actor in the long-term.

The main thing that stuck out about Lexington Steele besides his manners and being so down to earth was his quote, “It is a business.” I did not quite understand the emphasis he put on this simple statement until the research came into play. Lexington Steele was a stock broker on Wall Street before he became a full-time adult actor in LA in 1998. With his degree from Syracuse University and a lucrative career in NYC, Lexington Steele became apart of the adult industry for a better quality of life. The corporate style quality of life just was not for him.

In his career, Lexington Steele has acquired over 25 AVN Awards and is the first male to win Male Performer of the Year Award three times. Also, he is more than just an adult actor. In 2003 Lexington Steele started his own production company(Mercenary Motion Pictures), and it is still growing till this day, He resides as CEO on the company board. Directing is also something Lexington Steele added to his resume, as well as mainstream television appearances such as on the tv show “Weeds”.

Lexington Steele has made a career out of the adult film industry. He branched out into so many different aspects of the adult industry/entertainment industry, thus allowing himself residual income once he stops working actively on-screen. Taking the multidimensional path may not be easy, but it is a sure way to guarantee yourself a career in any industry.

Success and longevity have commonalities throughout the universe.

Cali Carter-AEE 2016

AEE 2015 @CaliCarterXXX

Cali Carter has not changed over the past year besides a pair of DDs. She is the same down to earth beautiful person as she was last year. It is always nice to see women evolve through their career and use the industry to their advantage. Over the past year Cali has taken some time off from filming, but has some scenes which will be released soon. Cali Carter is still my favorite California Girl. She embodies the image she portrays very well and has a business mind about her. As well as being a real person enough to talk about her dog and/or going to the gym, Cali Carter is the nicest person ever in person. At the AEE fans will be bombarding her and she will carry on a conversation while talking to fans and posing for pictures at the same time.

If I had to pick one young woman who will be a super star in the adult film industry:  It would be Cali Carter.

2016 Adult Webcam Awards-Las Vegas(Unedited)

@ZiFiStripClub
@ZiFiStripClub

The Adult Webcam Industry Awards were held in January at the Alexis Park Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada(the same week as the AVN Expo). This was the first awards show and conference exclusively for web cam models. They held seminars, had a fan meet and greet day, and networking opportunities specific to the web camming industry and all the vast niches it encompasses. The spectrum of different types of women who choose to webcam is very diverse.

There was no highly common body type like I experience at the AVNs, which was refreshing and surprising at the same time. With roots in the adult industry as a stripper, it was eye-opening to see women who do not fit the stereotypical look for beauty in American society embracing their beauty/sexuality. There is freedom in accepting who we are unapologetically.

Scarlett Black(@scartlettblackes) embraces her ability to find pleasure in pleasing others. If I saw her in a grocery store the last thing I would expect is for her to be apart of the adult industry. The saying “Looks can be deceiving,” was very apparent at the Adult Webcam Awards. Scarlett Black takes part in web camming along with being a phone sex operator and having a “real” job as well. The majority of her client base is in Europe. However, she said safety is her priority especially after already experiencing a foreign stalker on her front door one morning literally. She must be incredible at what she does in order to get a man to cross an ocean and travel thousands of miles just to see her in person. Some people cannot even get a date on a Friday night just to put it all into perspective!

Sammy Brooks(SammyBrooks69) was a porn star who now does cam work from her home in California. She invited Strip Club Journals to the Adult Webcam Awards and was kind and gracious with her time even though she was coordinating the event as well. The work involved in this awards show and convention was global. The awards varied from the Best European Live Web Cam Site, Best Foot Fetish Webcam Show, Best Lesbian Webcam Show, Best Ebony Cam Model, and many more.
 
Mindi Mink(@MindiMink) is a beautiful woman who is not afraid to let people know she is 47 years old. She is dabbling in girl on girl adult films, while still web camming at the same time. Mindi Mink embodies hope for women in the adult industry to embrace and utilize getting older. Aging in the adult industry may just be something to be embraced and utilized, not something to be ashamed of.
 
Overall, the Adult Webcam Awards was amazingly informative. The adult industry is not all blondes with fake boobs who work out daily in order to maintain the idea American Society has developed as to what a sexually attractive woman looks like. There is no cookie cutter to sexy in the web cam industry.

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.

Best Of The Best

The adult industry is an amazing place at the top, but very few get the chance to experience the opportunities and perks of the top. Those who do get to the place of the best of the best are blessed. However, as the saying goes, luck is opportunity meeting preparation so these few individuals have earned their rare blessings.

Christian Desire(Instagram:  MiamiModelo) has reached the top of the adult industry as a male stripper. Not only does he look amazing, but he is an extremely grounded person to speak with. Especially, considering the accomplishments(not to mention stories) he acquired along his adventures in the adult industry. Christian Desire travels dancing with the international traveling group Buns and Bowties(@Bunsandbowties), owned by J.J. McGraw(a.k.a. Mr. Worldwide).

A recent part in Magic Mike XXL was able to change Christian’s life and career. Some understandably need a new challenge once they have reached the top of their profession. Years of stripping and traveling with Buns and Bowties, who are more sought out than any other male group/review show and who continue to grow must be amazing. However, it only makes dollars and sense for Christian Desire to seek out a new higher level of success. A true entertainer at heart will never stop loving the ability to entertain others.

Recently I spoke with Christian Desire to followup and catch up with him since the recent release of the film Magic Mike XXL in July. Which from my Facebook news feed alone I can tell is a big deal to mainstream American society and is no longer attached with many mainstream stigmas of the past. Perhaps finally sex starved women who are repressed by religion, society, marriage, and children in American society are finally being catered to by the adult industry in a fashion they deem inoffensive  and yet still satisfies their sexual curiosities. Men have had this right/ability to fulfill this sexual desire for hundreds of years if not thousands of years. For women this is a whole new world and now more acceptable in mainstream American society than ever before.

Since the release of Magic Mike XXL Christain Desire has been insanely busy with work opportunities. A highlight is the new TV Pilot he will be filming in Atlanta this fall, while still touring with Buns and Bowties. Also, look forward to Christain in the upcoming movies: “The Nice Guys” with Russel Crowe and “Ride Along 2” with Ice Cube(just to name a couple).

Another example of the best of the best is Prinzzess Felicity. She has done over 160 scenes as an adult actress and was a Penthouse Pet in October 2014. Prinzzess Felicity was one of the first big girl on girl adult stars who is still active in the adult film industry today. She not only is an adult actress and model, but also is a feature dancer in strip clubs nationwide. This allows her to travel while still working. Traveling is one of the passions Prinzzess Felicity plans to indulge in once she has more leisure time. She is just a normal person who likes to eat pizza on her cheat days, but has achieved greatness. Being great in any industry takes an incredible amount of work. In the adult industry, as a woman it takes an exponential amount of work to achieve greatness. Men forget women run the adult industry, yet even women forget this. Every time any woman in the adult/sex industry devalues herself our value as a whole goes down.

The people in the adult industry who rarely reach the top would be small town strippers, who do not even know of the opportunities available. Dick Hennessy is the host of the Vagina Beauty Pageant held in Oregon. This is an opportunity for the eyes of small town strippers to see the stepping stone that the adult industry can truly be. In small towns it is easy to forget how much opportunity actually exists in the adult industry because small towns breed small dreams and small minds. I was shocked at the negative reaction I received after covering just one of the preliminary rounds of The Vagina Beauty Pageant in Oregon. The word “Vagina” seems to upset people. In actuality how is this competition different from any of the other competitions in the adult industry. Wet t-shirt contests are socially acceptable to a certain degree even outside the adult industry. This contest just takes being liberal to a new level, which the Northwest has proudly accomplished. Yes, liberal means not censoring what others value as happiness and fun in their lives. Including if they would like to take part in a vagina beauty pageant. True it is extreme, but hey we are all adults right?

If people in the adult industry are not allowed to see the opportunities that are available to them then they will never see the big picture. The adult industry can be a stepping stone to something else or it can be where you achieve greatness.
