When you’re brought up in a rural environment, some aspects of adult life are seen at a distance and create enormous curiosity. Mark drove to and fro from school and would often see the dark small building at the end of a crumbling strip-mall. Mark’s eyes would often only see the huge Indian Jewelry Trader Billboards in dusty New Mexico, but this building captured another interest. The building was right on the edge of the strip building as though it was on the brink of falling into oblivion. The business was painted in black with scream-out loud yellow lettering with the words “Adult,” “XXX,” and “Arcade.” The actual name of the business was meaningless when the description of what was inside did all the talking. Mark had never heard of such words and only knew these references pointed to what is taboo. Mark had to embark on a secret mission into this foreign on the fringe business establishment. He didn’t know what to do to prepare, but only could remember having enough dollar bills in his pocket and making sure he had easy access to them. Mark tried to act “middle-age,” or an “old pro,” who done this a million times before.
Once the entrance door was breached, there was no turning back and he even parked his car down the street next to the nearby restaurant so as to throw off onlookers. Inside the “Arcade,” thousands of magazines were seen wrapped in heavy and suffocating plastic as though a huge rain might come. Mark saw the line of booths which seemed odd and inviting at the same time probably due to the concealment they provided. Once inside, the door was closed and he saw a very small screen in front of him and a dollar bill slot. Mark found his money and moved it swiftly into the lighted machine. The dollar was taken and Mark heard some rumblings in the background as though an old rusty machine had finally started up again after a long wait. Mark was seized with anxiety and he had tried to remember to breathe and not pass out in a state of anticipation of viewing these first scenes of what is known as pornography. The movie started to play and the color of the film was faded and had a yellow tone to it. The scene was in a hospital and a male actor was recuperating from a perceived “illness,” and then the fun started when his attending nurse appeared. This was probably the first “porn star,” seen by Mark whom he found out later was named Vanessa del Rio. In those times, the movies had some dialogue and some prelude to the sex, but nonetheless it did arrive. Ms. Vanessa Del Rio had to show empathy and care to her patient and then added something extra to break the spell of his illness. As the movie concluded, Mark knew this arcade was a capsule into a whole new world.
I am a very sexually active 23 year old white female. But it wasn’t always that way!
I was born in south Louisiana and raised in a very conservative household! A lot of what I’m into now and what I do and write about was EXTREMELY frowned upon.
One day I was driving my boyfriend at the times car up to visit hos parents, when thumbing through his satellite radio I stumbled onto an “adult” channel.
The more I drove and the longer I listens I could feel my pants getting soaked. So many men calling into this show to have phone sex live on air!
I then heard the DJ say the phone number for the show, so I called in! It didn’t take long for the host to have me pulled over on a busy highway, finger banging away at my pussy, and cuming so loud and hard live on air for millions to hear! I quickly became a regular caller on the show.
It was from there that the more I chatted with the porn stars on the radio that I decided to pursue a career in porn.
I came up with my name (Alison Bailey) and sought out an agency.
I got into contact with a few places, but I quickly signed a contract with an agency in New Orleans called On Top models.
After getting my first gig I was told I’d be paid $1500! For an audition casting couch type scene.
I met the male talent , fucked him on camera, and was told my money would go into my account. After a week of no pay I called the agency to find out they weren’t legit and now I’m still in the middle of a law suit over video property of me having sex and money said to be Owed to me.
After this as experience I decided to go a different route. Phone sex! It’s safe and I make LOTS of money.( Well enough money from a casual second job talking dirty to people)
And I didn’t want that bad experience to ruin my sexual lifestyle, so I decided to blog my naughty erotic stories!
It’s been about a month since I started phone sex, and writing, and I couldn’t enjoy it any more than I do.
Ivan of the Puba Network(@IamIvanxxx) introduced me to Arika Lane (@AkiraLane) who introduced me to Migliori personal lubricant. All this took place while enjoying the XRCO awards on the patio at Ohm nightclub in Hollywood, California. It is like living a domino effect in real-time. Every adult industry gathering provides for great networking opportunities.
Migliori products make me excited(pun intended).
Finally, a lube that addresses the fact women need to moisturize from the inside. I have searched for a lube with additional health benefits besides making bedroom fun more pleasurable. Over the years, I have found coconut oil to be the best lube and great for moisturizing with many other health/beauty benefits. However, the downside is coconut oil can cause holes in condoms or for them to completely break. This is a huge drawback to using coconut oil as lube and internal moisturizer, because no one wants to use a condom just to have it break and/or get a hole.
My lube research adventure begins. Wish me luck and please reach out to tell me how you decide what lube to use? What is your favorite brand? Why? What do you expect out of your lube?
The 33rd annual XRCO awards were held April 27th in Hollywood, California at the OHM nightclub. As the AVN Awards are the “Oscar’s of Porn”, the XRCO Awards are the “Academy Awards of Porn”. This adult industry awards show is voted on by only adult industry members. Thus, making it an experience of who is who within the adult industry.
The XRCO voters are a group of writer and editors within the adult industry called the American X-Rated Critics Organization. In 1984 when the XRCO awards began, the American X-Rated Critics Organization was only an American based group of voters. However over the years, they have evolved into an international organization. All members of the X-Rated Critics Organization are active members of the adult industry. Thus, making the XRCO awards unique and one of a kind.
“Another great High school reunion of jocks, cool kids, dorks, and that one “medicated” chick crawling around on the dirty concrete. Can’t wait for another reunion!” ~Ivan, The Puba Network (@IamIvanxxx)
As an adult industry journalist, this was first awards show I attended as a guest rather than as press. The differences were astounding. I normally attend adult industry events alone. Award shows are work and not a social function. However this time, I allowed myself the opportunity to enjoy the XRCO awards show as a social function with a slight agenda to capture the events of the night.
Holly Hendrix was one of the favorites of the night. She won the 2017 XRCO “Superslut” award. This matched with her 2017 AVN award for “Best New Starlet” put her on the list of adult actresses to keep an eye on. Greatness awaits her if her she keeps herself in the favor of the adult industry votes and the fan votes. What a great way to start a career and what a beautiful little lady!
Briana Banks won the “Best Cumback” award for 2017. She is represented by OC Modeling and had many great things to say when she found out she was an award winner.
“I’m thrilled to have won this award, I put all my heart and energy into my comeback. I have to thank all the directors that continue to use me in their productions, my publicity team, Star Factory PR, and all the reviewers who are part of the XRCO for recognizing my performances. I have a lot of exciting projects on the horizon, and I can’t wait to share them with everyone.”~Briana Banks 
Kleio Valentien took home the award for “Best Actress” for playing Harley Quinn in the adult movie “Suicide Squad XXX: An Axel Braun Parody”. “Best Actor” awards went to Tommy Pistol for his role in the same movie: Suicide Squad XXX: An Axel Braun Parody. Plus, shockingly enough, “Suicide Squad XXX: An Axel Braun Parody” won the award for “Best Parody”. Also, director Axel Braun won “Best Director (Parody)”. If this many people within the adult industry think this movie and its performers are this great it is probably worth giving a whirl.

As with every adult industry event I learn more about myself than the adult stars I go to research and study. This specific Thursday night in Hollywood with the walk of fame stars on the sidewalks, the fresh spring air mixed with the smell of marijuana, and my “Entitled Writer” shirt on I realized I may be an adult industry journalist, but I will always be on the outside looking in. My roots maybe in the adult industry, but I never made the leap to in front of the camera and onto film. This is a fine line that makes a world of difference within adult industry niches.
How far is one willing to take the adult industry to get fame, fortune, and a career they can retire off of in such a taboo manner? The envelope will continue to be pushed with the test of time, but let us take a moment to celebrate all the individuals who make their career out of pushing the envelope. Without these people we as a society would be lost!
Last night were the Xrco Awards at the Ohm Nightclub in Hollywood. These events and conventions are starting to feel similar to extended family holiday gatherings. The dynamics vary, but the guarantee of excitement mixed with alcohol and booming voices are always present. The adult industry is like a family and shows love to most everyone, but yet competition within the industry is encouraged. It is human nature to want to be appreciated for your career. These award shows allow for these magical moments to unravel.
The Xrco Awards are a great memory and experience to have been blessed with!
