Marrying of hardcore and mainstream...

Marriage 2.0 cut for an NC-17 rated version for a more mainstream market

Link Here16th March 2015
Marriage 2.0 is a 2015 USA romance by Paul Deeb.
Starring Nina Hartley, India Summer and Ryan Driller. IMDb

Wander the Internet or your neighborhood and it's clear: throughout our culture, much of what was true 20 years ago is not necessarily the case now. Our relationships, romantic and otherwise, are in many ways beginning to reflect these new realities. Set against the vivid, natural beauty of Northern California and San Francisco, Marriage 2.0 follows a couple (India Summer and Ryan Driller) on their search for personal freedom, emotional and sexual bliss within the context of an honest and committed modern relationship. What makes Marriage 2.0 a different kind of relationship movie is its frankness; for all the pleasures of open relationships, jealousy and vulnerability do not magically disappear. This love letter to San Francisco - the cultural epicenter of the alternative relationship movement - suggests that the ideas of growth, novelty, and sexual adventure can exist within a millennial marriage. Marriage 2.0 tells a story both timely and universal.

An edited version of the independent film Marriage 2.0 has received an NC-17 Rating from the MPAA for explicit sexual content and graphic nudity throughout. The film is distributed in the US by Adam & Eve, Marriage 2.0 and features hardcore performances from adult stars, at least in the uncut Unrated version. S creenwriter and producer Magnus Sullivan said:

We are very pleased with the NC-17 Rating from the MPAA. It's an affirmation of our mission of producing an independent film that contains explicit sex, but is driven by dramatic narrative. Marriage 2.0 is a new kind of film bridging adult and mainstream cinema. It's truly a marriage of independent cinema and adult films that creates a realistic and compelling story about a couple searching to redefine the model for a 'successful' relationship.

Gareth May, a contributing writer for British lifestyle and culture site, described Marriage 2.0 as a potential game changer for the porn industry. May wrote:

There are some great performances in the movie. India Summer especially excels, and Nina Hartley's brief role shows she clearly has comedic timing and talent. The movie is most remarkable for its limited use of hardcore sex‚?¶Marriage 2.0 is a very different kind of porn film.

Marriage 2.0 features performances from adult entertainment stars such as India Summer, Ryan Driller, Dylan Ryan, Nina Hartley, and Mickey Mod, along with appearances from internationally renowned sex and relationship experts, such as Emily Morse and Reid Mihalko. The film follows a couple (India Summer and Ryan Driller) on their search for personal freedom, as well as emotional and sexual bliss within the context of an honest and committed modern relationship.

Update: The Morality State...

Politicians make another attempt to repress adult entertainment in Kansas

Link Here26th February 2015
Full story: Adult Entertainment in USA...Miserable politicians vs adult entertainment
A Kansas morality bill that would establish repressive new zoning rules where strip clubs and DVD and sex toy and novelty stores could be located is being debated. Senate Bill 147 would initiate statewide zoning limiting where sexually oriented video stores, sexual device stores, adult arcades and strip clubs could be located.

Some of the main restrictions would forbid new sex toys and novelty stores and strip clubs from operating within 1,000 feet of schools, day cares, churches or libraries and prohibit the sale of alcohol.

The stores and clubs would be mandated to close at midnight with the bill, and operators would be forced to go through background checks to see if they have been convicted of certain criminal activities that are specified in the bill.

Editors as the Topeka Capital-Journal, however, are staunchly against the new bill saying:

The businesses serve a population, employ people and pay taxes. If there were no demand for them they would go out of business. Legislators have better things to do than pander to people who want their own moral outrage placed in the statute books.

Not entirely satisfied...

US court case against 'pleasure gel' for failing to deliver the goods

Link Here14th February 2015

The author of 50 Shades of Grey is being sued over inadequate sex lubricant.

Last week, Tania Warchol filed a class-action lawsuit in California claiming that the Fifty Shades of Grey Come Alive Pleasure Gel For Her failed to deliver on its promise of sexual gratification and improved orgasms. (The suit names author Erika Mitchell (EL James) and Delaware corporation Lovehoney as defendants.)

Warchol is suing on behalf of everybody who bought this over the last four years, and is seeking a refund and punitive damages. She is claiming that the sex gel violates California's unfair competition and false advertising laws. The complaint reads:

Based on Defendants' representations, Plaintiff believed the Product has powerful aphrodisiac qualities and would increase her sexual pleasure as advertised. The Product did not deliver the purported benefits.



Update: Registered as Repressive...

Florida lawmakers propose malicious law to make strip clubs unviable

Full story: Pole Tax...Discriminatory taxes on adult entertainment in USA
Patrons of strip clubs and adult theaters would have to pay a Florida state tax before going in, under a malicious proposal being looked at by state lawmakers seemingly attempting to close down such venues.

The House Finance & Tax Committee agreed to advance the sin tax bill out of the committee. The measure would impose entry requirements on adult establishments, including a $10 fee on top of any other existing admission charges. Also, it would require the business to keep records identifying customers.

Committee Chairman Republican Matt Gaetz, said the proposal would discourage people from frequenting the businesses.

The proposals have yet to make their way to the Senate. Anticipating opposition because the measure would hit businesses, House Finance & Tax Committee members said they need to carefully define the proposal.

Representative Mike Hill said that while he agreed with the adult-entertainment surcharge, he was concerned about individual privacy in requiring the businesses to keep records on customers:

When else, because you're buying a certain product, you're going to buy a loaf of bread, (and) you have to put your name down?

Representative Charles Van Zant said the surcharge should be $10 on night clubs, where do you not have human nudity, and $25 on those who do. Van Zant claimed that because of connections between adult entertainment and human tracking, the state should collect names.

College freshman Madison Presley (Carter Cruise) thought that she had met her soul mate when she started dating handsome football player Josh Rochette (Chad White.) That is, until she is devastated by the revelation that she has become the butt of a giant, well orchestrated fraternity prank. Fast forward three years to her senior year, and Madison has (mostly) moved past the heartbreak with the help of her unfailingly loyal friend, Dean (Brendan miller) and her wisecracking roommates, Olivia (Jessa Rhodes) and Lucas (Logan Pierce).

But when Josh unexpectedly comes back into her life with a scheming sorority girlfriend (Allie Haze) on his arm, Madison's world is thrown into a tailspin. Although older, wiser, and far more cynical than when she'd first fallen for him, she's left wondering whether something truly wonderful can come out of giving people "Second Chances."

Update: Safety State...

Nevada considers mandating condoms for porn performers citing the success of condom requirements in keeping the state's legal brothels, HIV free

Link Here10th January 2015
Full story: Health and Safety in Porn...AIDS and condoms in the US porn industry
Nevada health officials have announced that they are considering applying the same strict regulations required of sex workers in brothels in Nevada to the adult film industry. Since 1988, when the State Health Department first mandated condom use for all prostitutes in all brothels, there have been no reported HIV infections tied to Nevada brothels. Nevada is the only jurisdiction in the United States where prostitution is legally allowed.

In the twenty-seven years that Nevada has required condom use in its brothels, there has not been a single case of HIV transmission found in, or tied to Nevada brothels, said Michael Weinstein, President of AIDS Healthcare Foundation.

According to the L.A. Daily News, Nevada's health regulations on licensed brothels require 'each patron to wear and use a latex prophylactic while engaging in sexual intercourse, oral-genital contact or any touching of the sexual organs or other intimate parts of a person.

Full story: Fifty Shades of Grey...BDSM book scores an international hit
Fifty Shades of Grey is a 2015 USA sexy romance by Sam Taylor-Johnson.
Starring Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan and Jennifer Ehle. Youtube link IMDb

Literature student Anastasia Steele's life changes forever when she meets handsome, yet tormented, billionaire Christian Grey.

The US film censors of the MPAA have awarded the film an R rating for:

Strong sexual content including dialogue, some unusual behavior and graphic nudity, and for language.

An R rated film is considered suitable for children aged 17 and above. The rating also means that younger children may see the film in a theatre if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Clearly this openness to children rather restricts the amount of sex allowed in an R rated film and means that Red Shoes Diary type chocolate box erotica is about as sexy as these films can become.

Of course the marketeers will now have a damn good try at convincing you otherwise.



A Hellishly Sexy Tan...

Death threats to a muslim porn star may be taken a little more seriously after Charlie Hebdo murders

Link Here8th January 2015
A Lebanese-American porn star has received death threats after being ranked the number one actress on the adult website Pornhub.

Mia Khalifa moved from Beirut, Lebanon to the United States at the age of ten before eventually moving to Miami, where she is now based.

The 21-year-old history graduate was ranked the most popular performer by Pornhub after only only a short period in the industry. In fact so short that she doesn't seem to have appeared in a full length commercial feature yet.

Her ranking drew strong criticism from many, including some in the Middle East who branded her a disgrace to the country and shameful .  A scene that seemed to rile was from one of her videos showing her giving a blow job and then having sex whilst wearing a hijab.

However Khalifa has been gamely defending herself against criticism with some humerous replies. One Twitter user threatened her head will be cut soon while another warned Khalifa would be the the first person in Hellfire , to which she quipped: I've been meaning to get a little tan recently .

Khalifa told the Washington Post such scenes are satirical and should be taken as such, adding: There are Hollywood movies that depict Muslims in a much worse manner than any scene Bang Bros [the production company] could produce.
