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!

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...
PornFilmFest Berlin 2013

PornFilmFest Berlin 2013

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.

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.

Feminist Porn Award Nominations 2012

Feminist Porn Award Nominations 2012

Feminist porn pioneer Annie Sprinkle once said: “The answer to bad porn is not no porn, but to try to make better porn!” And to this I would add: not necessarily “better” porn, but specifically, “MORE” porn. Because “better” is in the eye of the beholder, and given that all adults involved are legal and consenting, there’s...

Fleshbot Awards 2011

I’m very excited to be heading to New York this weekend to attend the 2011 Fleshbot Awards! Fleshbot.com stands out as a pivotal website for me because it was one of the first — and most mainstream — of porn sites to respect my gender pronouns. In addition, Fleshbot acts as a model of sex-positivity, being one...

Queer Porn TV – You are a Queer Porn Star (Yes YOU!)

A benefit for a porn company? Perhaps one of the many differences that singles out queer porn and other adult genres.
