The piracy continues and seems to have a strong chokehold on many companies, performers, crew, and other players in porn production — why shoot when you might not even recover production costs, let alone make a profit! The numbers of performers and productions has thinned considerably. My personal access to sex via porn shoots is way down, almost nonexistent lately. Thankfully, swinging continues in what seems like an expanding way, so I have access to sex via that avenue.
The piracy has made my face more readily recognized as more and more folks wrongly download porn from the Internet. Yesterday, during my daily exercise walk on the beach boardwalk while wearing sunglasses and a hat for privacy, I was approached four different times by porn consumers who recognized me from downloaded adult films they had obtained off of the Internet. No, I didn't get any action from it, but last night a groupie coed brought a new dorm girl by to show her that she actually knew me, and yes they both gave me head before they went back to study; being an older porn star sometimes helps me get laid by women who are into the "daddy thing" (Elegant Angel has a whole series titled "It's a Daddy Thing", and yes I've performed in a couple of them).
Last night at a local happy hour, a military guy approached me to ask a number of the usual porn questions — Do the girls really cum, how do we prevent getting HIV/STDs, and how could he get into porn. I guess it was good that I had ordered a salad, rather than having my meal get cold while he fired off questions galore; I left early, just to regain some privacy to be alone with my best friend, namely "Me".
At a couple's house for a swinging party last week, instead of the normal "go slow" and early socializing that often happens, sex erupted within the first 30 minutes. Parties with experienced swinger couples who have long ago set their personal rules and boundaries, and have good communication skills between themselves really seem to enjoy the No Strings Attached sex that abounds. On my way home, I realized that I received oral from six of the ladies, and had repeated vaginal sex with one of them much of the evening (her guy enjoyed watching her, and I later noticed them having intercourse in a stand-up doggie position in the laundry room off of the kitchen). Yes, the pot luck food was good, too.
Well, the voters of Los Angeles County opted on November 6 for mandatory condoms in porn shoots, something most of us porn people are not happy about. I imagine that a lot of the remaining producers who still shoot in spite of piracy are now reviewing their varied options. California and New Hampshire are the two only States where porn production is legal. A lot of insider people at last week's Free Speech Coalition Summit were brainstorming alternatives to dealing with or complying with the condoms mandate. I sense that this will not be easily or quickly resolved. Between the negative effects of piracy and the financial mess of mandatory condoms, porn production as a business seems stressed.
The Xmas holiday season is approaching quickly. Drive safely, use sun block even during this time of year, and enjoy life and family.
