March 07 From the Trenches

Living in San Diego has advantages, for example the temperate weather, relatively bearable traffic, and the girl-magnet beaches. Just this morning, I had my normal breakfast at a very popular site, literally just 20 yards from the pier and the beach, and then I did my usual 4-5 mile brisk walk; the Spring Break college girls were out worshipping the sun, the dolphins were seemingly "hanging out" with the surfers just 70-80 yards off the beach, and the out of town visitors and families were smiling and happy.
I love San Diego, but I also enjoy my "work" and business-related trips (but not the always dense and slow traffic) to Los Angeles. Three of these trips since my last column particularly stand out in my mind. The first was to the historic and grand Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel for the Xbiz Expo gathering of Adult Internet folks (see www.xbiz.com ) where seminars were extremely informative and enlightening, the parties were fun, and the Xbiz Awards Show (held near this yearís Academy Awards site) was great. In fact, the entire three-day event was classy, well organized, and superb in every aspect, and I applaud and thank Xbiz and all the sponsors and seminar participants. I sat up front for the helpful FBI presentation and questions/answers concerning the on-site 2257 records inspections, the Keynote Address/Interview of Larry Flynt masterfully orchestrated by Tom Hymes, Publisher/Editor of Xbiz, and numerous other seminars---Xbiz has video recordings of those and other seminars for free viewing at by interested folks at http://www.xbizhollywood.com/seminar_videos.php. At one Xbiz party sponsorís social gathering for free beer and wings in the upstairs Hollywood Boulevard "Hooterís", we unexpectedly got a birds eye view of the thousands lining the streets in front of the Mannís Chinese Theater for the premiere of "Music & Lyrics", starring Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant, both of whom thrilled the onlookers by walking into the crowds and posing for photos and signing autographs before they had to walk the red carpet for VIPs into the theater. Speaking of the red carpet, walking it the next night into the Xbiz Awards Show was a delight, especially alongside so many beautiful women and porn stars.
On another trip to Los Angeles, I was privileged to work for Elegant Angelís Director Patrick Collins in a sex scene with Brianna Love for a filming of "Itís a Daddy Thing 3" in which she seduces me (I love my job!). I want to tell you, 22-year old Brianna Love has a butt like Nina Hartleyís when she was 22 --- like probably many of you, I still get off watching Ninaís movies! Briannaís body was amazing to see, and exciting to touch/enjoy during the sex positions; a number of times, usually while the camera was doing close-ups of our genitals, I looked over at Director Patrick Collins and mouthed the words "thankyou! thankyou! thankyou!" to him. I also did the drive to Los Angeles for a Wildlife Productions (see www.wildlifexxx.com) shoot where I enjoyed the entire day and all the sex. Sometimes, I think that I am blessed by enjoying Heaven in my career right here on Earth. Yup, I love my job.
Before closing out this monthís column, let me describe something Non-sexual and not work related that I thoroughly enjoyed last week here in San Diego, and wish all of you could have also experienced it. A running club friend of mine has a female friend who heads the 14-person crew of flight attendants on one of the civilian airlines contracted to ferry military folks to/from assignments in Iraq. She asked me to let him accompany me onto the Marine base for her incoming flight so that she could bring him on board her jumbo jet that was landing that noontime with returning combat and support Marines. The noon flight arrival was delayed an hour due to high westerly winds, so we took the time to lunch at the Officerís Club where the buffet featured prime rib and salmon. Of course, it was crowded with military fighter pilots and other Marines. My running club friend was awed by the down-to-earth attitudes and friendliness of the diners, some of whom had been doing nearby off-shore Aircraft Carrier practice landings and take-offs that morning. As we drove towards the massive military flight line, hundreds of family members and others were also parking and walking to the reception area near the Flight Ops hangar; the spouses/children/parents were obviously happy and excited about their loved oneís return to America. As the jet was sighted off in the distance, everyone cheered and it seemed like most became choked up with emotions/tears of joy. Seeing the excitement of the kids was a personally enjoyable for me (when I returned from combat in Vietnam, our welcome back was unavoidably quiet). The media was there in force, but families were focused on their loved ones (and keeping the children in tow!), not the television cameras. The roar of the crowd was almost deafening when the wheels touched down and the cheers thundered. The debarking Marines still had their weapons, though they had turned in their ammo as they boarded the aircraft 16-hours earlier, and they looked both tired and tremendously happy at the same time. Single military returnees who didnít have family there were welcomed home by other base military comrades and by former/retired military folks like me. The family reunions were very moving, and even my eyes welled-up a few times in my happiness for everyone. A military band was there, and the military "work party" handling the off-loading and facilitating the reunions of the returning folks worked efficiently while simultaneously exhibiting thoughtfulness, pride and happiness for the homecoming Marines. What a sight to see, and what a day to be an American! Yes, the running club guy met up with his friend and she took him on board while I stayed in the crowd and enjoyed what we all see on television from time to time.
I usually end my columns by urging readers to use sun block (Iíve had three skin cancer surgeries over the past 5-6 years), or by "preaching" my mantra that sex between consenting adults is a blessed natural, normal, and healthy aspect of life; but this time, let me end it this way---no matter what we think of the politics and/or Americaís involvement with the Iraq situation, we all should be mindful of the brave and dedicated troops who are following orders and serving our nation.
God Bless America, and the planet Earth!
