Fisting Day 2014

Fisting Day 2014

International Fisting Day is October 21st! You ready for a monster post? Well grab your lube, lay back, and relax. It’s late on Thursday night and I’m typing this out at one of my favorite bars, El Rio. San Francisco just felt it’s second earthquake today. It makes me shiver thinking about the fragility of our...
UNSHAVEN (I want to live in a tide pool for Nikki Silver's upcoming book on gender and body hair.)

UNSHAVEN (I want to live in a tide pool for Nikki Silver’s upcoming book on gender and body hair.)

Here’s a peek at my photoshoot with Nikki Silver for her upcoming book, UNSHAVEN! As someone who rarely shaves and has a lot of feels about the social constructs around gender and hair, it was a powerful collaboration and I’m honored to be included in her photo collection. (And the last pic is my absolute...
TRICKS of the TRADE: Porn Best Practices Article in September 2014 XBiz Magazine

TRICKS of the TRADE: Porn Best Practices Article in September 2014 XBiz Magazine

“Didn’t you shoot a scene with her? When’s the video going to come out?” Whenever the topic comes up, my porno candle dims a little. This summer marks the second anniversary of one of the hottest performances of my career, and I’m beginning to think the video will never be released. Even worse, I have...
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: How to Come Out Like a Pornstar, the Book!

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: How to Come Out Like a Pornstar, the Book!

The ways in which we “come out” — or DON’T — say a lot about who we are and how we are perceived. Coming out can expose shame as much as it can reveal open-minded acceptance. Stories about the reactions from our family and friends, or the ways in which we guard our decisions through...
If Not Now: Tylyn Anson's Trans & Genderqueer Coming of Age Story

If Not Now: Tylyn Anson’s Trans & Genderqueer Coming of Age Story

In October, I’ll travel to New Orleans! This will be my second time visiting, and though I wont have much free time to enjoy and explore, I’m really looking forward to the brief return. NOLA is a super special place and I’ve loved all the sweet people I’ve met there. I’m very lucky to come...

Petra Joy’s (S)he Comes: Jiz Lee, Liandra Dahl, Wolf Hudson

Winner of numerous Feminist Porn awards and producer of the HER PORN film series, UK-based pornographer Petra Joy has established leadership in Europe’s porn-for-women market. So, it was with great excitement — and slight trepidation — that we got together over Skype to discuss the possibility of working together. After seeing my gender-bending film Justify My Jiz...

Genderflux: Jiz Lee & Nikki Hearts

Genderflux: Jiz Lee & Nikki Hearts

I’m quite smitten by Nikki Hearts, who got her start with Burning Angel. We had an opportunity to met while on set at CrashPadSeries.com (Check out Nikki’s shoot, it’s impressive and she’s so professional!) When she invited me to shoot with her for her new project, I could only say yes! We both agreed upon...
Own the camera that started it all. CrashPad Camera Up for Auction!

Own the camera that started it all. CrashPad Camera Up for Auction!

In 2005, I filmed my first porn scene. The film was The Crash Pad, a movie that paved the way for sex-shop produced, queer-made porn in the San Francisco Bay Area. It became a dyke sex cult classic that coalesced with a burgeoning online generation to form the backbone of my career in adult. It’s been an incredible journey. And now you can...
I'll tri anything once: my first triathlon!

I’ll tri anything once: my first triathlon!

I'm competing in my first Triathlon on Sunday, June 8th. Help me fulfill my goals, while raising money for St. James Infirmary, a non-profit health clinic in San Francisco. What does swimming, biking, and running have to do with sex work? More than you think!
Safer Sex in Queer Porn and the Condom Debate

Safer Sex in Queer Porn and the Condom Debate

I added a sticky to this post because even though it was written in 2011 for Measure B, the issue of mandating condoms in sex is still rearing it's ugly head, this time with terrifying legal consequence. My thoughts haven't changed much so I've included updates.
Wet Dreams: Jiz Lee & Lyric Seal

Wet Dreams: Jiz Lee & Lyric Seal

About two years ago, I spoke at Smith College and afterwards, met someone who would reignite within me a passion for performance, artful sex, and creative embodiment: Lyric Seal. Fast-forward and Lyric is blowing up on CrashPad and we’re on porn-date #2, scheming ideas for our collaboration for Trouble Film’s upcoming movie, Wet Dreams. We...
Recap from the 2014 Feminist Porn Marathon (And Award-Winners!)

Recap from the 2014 Feminist Porn Marathon (And Award-Winners!)

I’m back in the bay, and wow. What a whirlwind of events up in Toronto! Did I say Feminist Porn Retreat? More like Feminist Porn Marathon. The last few days have been a bit of a blur, as I’m winding down from jam-packed weekend of screenings, panels, and meetings. And I’ve just barely begun to...
Into the Wild: 2014 Feminist Porn Awards & Conference

Into the Wild: 2014 Feminist Porn Awards & Conference

San Francisco is wet. It’s been a few days of fairly consistent rain and I’m grateful because the entire Bay Area has been feeling a draught. It needs this. I’m also grateful because I LOVE the rain. It’s a cozy buzz with a recharging quality to it. I am happy. Yesterday I was at Pink &...

Princeton IvyQ Conference

I’m presenting a screening of a selection of my porn performances based on my workshop “Fucking for REEL” at Princeton University. I have had the great honor of being invited to come to colleges and universities to share my perspectives and experiences in regards to pornography, gender and sexuality among other topics. It’s with pride that...
AVN & XBIZ Awards: Fucks Were Given.

AVN & XBIZ Awards: Fucks Were Given.

The last few weeks have been a busy blur. I’ve obviously fallen out of touch with regular blog updates, but made a resolution to keep at it, so I can’t let these two major adult industry events come and go without some sort of documentation. The time spent was tiring, though I’m one of...

Great news! I’ve been invited to be featured on the awesome sex-education comic & sex toy review site, OhJoySexToy.com, created by Erika Moen with help from her devastatingly handsome husband, Matthew Nolan.

Tombois 2: Jiz Lee & Sovereign Syre

Tombois 2: Jiz Lee & Sovereign Syre

Dana Vespoli is one of the best directors in porn. So when called me up and asked me if I’d like to work for her, I jumped. It was also the first time I would have the opportunity to meet and work with Sovereign Syre. My general rule is to only work with people who...

Girl/Boy: Jiz Lee & Manuel Ferrara

Girl/Boy: Jiz Lee & Manuel Ferrara

Girl/Boy joins the ranks of being one of the most anticipated films I’ve yet to do. My work with cisgender men is rare, in part because I don’t fit the standard porn look or script. Also, it’s a unique opportunity to work with condoms on a “heterosexual” sex shoot. So it’s only once in a...
DOING IT AGAIN: Kimberly Gray & Jiz Lee (upcoming)

DOING IT AGAIN: Kimberly Gray & Jiz Lee (upcoming)

I had the pleasure of performing in Tobi Hill-Meyer’s Doing It Again with Kimberly Gray, who I met on the set of CrashPad.

PleasureChest’s GLORYHOLE 2013

I had the pleasure of recently performing for a bunch of party goers and peeping eyes at GLORYHOLE, a party celebrating PleasureChest’s 42th Anniversary, benefiting AIDS Project Los Angeles. It was a fun night of catching up with friends and getting dental dam dirty with Allison Moon! I’ll write about that experience soon, but in the...

SWELLCon is a free, online video conference that presents a number of videos on the topic of sex and media.

Clever Screens presents BOUND

Clever Screens presents BOUND

Gina Gershon’s mouth. The way Jennifer Tilly breathed the name, “Corky.” And the excitement of watching a straight-up Hollywood film that was about… dykes! Dykes, and the mafia, and a lot of bloody money, and murder. But damned if my strongest memory of BOUND still flutters back to Gina Gershon’s curled lips. My first experience...
Hedwig & the Angry Inch!... Times 8!

Hedwig & the Angry Inch!… Times 8!

The San Francisco Bay Area really is a special place. I was reminded of that fact as I sat in the intimate, night-club styled Box Car Theatre, about to watch Hedwig & The Angry Inch: the Live Musical! while being served cleverly themed cocktails. (My pick: The Origin of Love-ly Margarita.) On stage, Arturo Galster...

Fisting Day October 21st 2012

Fisting Day October 21st 2012

Courtney Trouble and I created Fisting Day last year to celebrate, educate, and explore the sexual act of hand sex. It all started when “Live Sex Show” was denied inclusion on a VOD website because it included a fisting scene with myself and Nina Hartley. The fisting section of me and Nina’s scene was integral...
Safer Sex Can Be HOT!

Safer Sex Can Be HOT!

Note: this is a follow up of my previous post Safer Sex in Queer Porn and The Condom Debate, which appeared on this site last year, and which I still feel is relavent in the “condom debate.” With the recent backlash against barriers from some in the adult industry, I wanted to join my friend...
