Blog Jinx: Back of the Cab I Love You Awards

In the back of a taxi cab heading to Good For Her’s Feminist Porn Awards, me and two of the hottest ladies of the adult industry made a pact. April Flores, Courtney Trouble, and myself agreed to post a simultaneous blog at noon on Monday April 12th. Give or take a few hours. The blog...

Postcard from the Feminist Porn Awards: The Boundary Breaker!

I won “The Boundary Breaker” at the 2010 Feminist Porn Awards! If there was any award I would wish to win, this is IT! I’m ever so SO grateful to all of the directors, producers, co-stars, and crew who know me — and by know, I mean love me — and accept who I am...

April’s Karma Pervs Update… the Center for Sex & Culture’s Photo Club!

I’m so very excited about the Center for Sex & Culture’s Karma Pervs, my philanthropic porn fundraiser.  This May I’ll be participating with them as a featured performer for their annual Masturbate-a-thon. Their photo club (Monthly Erotic Photography Workshops) was a blast to model for. Read more about the shoot, and check out some amazing photos...

The Verdict: LASIK is awesome!

After years of courting the idea of getting LASIK, and of saving and saving to make room in my budget for the procedure (which isn’t covered by most health insurance companies), I finally bit the bullet and scheduled my porn-paid vision with LASIK eye surgery. The procedure was quick and painless, though I admit I was...

New Bonus Sets added to Karma Pervs

Good karma just got pervy-er! (…Hmmm. That should really be a word.) I’m very happy to announce that two new bonus sets have been added to my March’s Karma Perv update. There’s SO much happening for March, it’s incredible! Thank you so much to the new folks who signed up — it puts me that much...

Erotic Photography Workshop

On Sunday, March 21st, I’ll be posing for the Center for Sex & Culture‘s Erotic Photography Workshop. This will be part of my Karma Pervs porn-as-fundraiser project; I’ll gather photos from the workshop’s photographers (those who want to participate) and will incorporate their collection as one of the upcoming updates as a benefit for the...

Seeing the Forest through the Trees

This week I was scheduled to shoot a porn scene, one that I was very excited about doing. I fantasized about it, I kept notes with ideas about it, I was very much looking forward to doing it, and making a decent amount of money, too which I was hoping I could use towards my...

Back into Swing

Just when I thought things were feeling slow in pornolandia, now it seems that there are a million opportunities and projects underway. I’m looking forward to some very exciting shoots coming up — more info on those soon — and I’m also very very excited about a new project that I just launched called Karma...

Porn-paid Vision

I’m excited to announce that I went to my LASIK pre-consultation today and it’s confirmed — I’m approved as a healthy candidate for the operation. I’m getting LASIK done next month! When I started this site in 2007, I had a Paypal account set up to receive donations to go towards my hopeful surgery. I...

Momentums

It’s a Saturday night, and I’m at home for a moment uploading some photos I took for my digital photography class before going out again for a bit. Taking a photo class has given me a bright pair of eyes, and I’m seeing so much detail in the world it’s startling. The rooftops of buildings....

Comparing a Slut Kit to Preparing a Survival Kit

In the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti (donate to Red Cross or Doctors without Borders), I’ve started to have recurring dreams about preparing a survival kit for an upcoming earthquake. In my dream, I am laying in my bed, scanning my room and picking out which items I would pull together to put in...

Black & Gold… Queers on the AVN Red Carpet

Jinx! This is a “Blog Jinx” by me and Courtney Trouble. From time to time we agree to schedule a blog post on the same topic, to be published at the same time. I’ll show you mine if you show me yours… Check out hers at CourtneyTrouble.com. It’s been three full days since I’ve returned...

Home

I’m freshly arrived back in the bay, reflecting on my 2010 AVN Awards & AEE experience. I feel rejuvenated, spurred, heavy, and simply glad to sleep in my own bed again. More thoughts and pics to come. Until then, this song felt appropriate for my return: “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

Watching vs. Seeing

Every time I think about the upcoming AVN Awards Ceremony and my nomination for “Best New Web Star” I get a chill that runs through my body and ends up at the flesh on the bottom of my butt as sharp goosebumps. January 9th rapidly approaches and I’m realizing that I’m really fucking nervous about...

Queer as Money

A friend handed me a flier today with a great way for folks to express their anger about not being seen as equal. You know how some people are saying that they wish they could have their tax money back? No Taxation Without Representation, etc? Well, you might not be able to get your Benjamins...

Fuck Competition

I recently let insecurities get in my way of having a good time being myself. I’m going to skip the details as it’s a little too close to home for me to publicly recount the feelings I had. While I’m disappointed that I felt such negativity effect me, I understand that we all have moments...

Stepping Up for ART XX Magazine

I’m busy with fingers to keyboard preparing an article for the next issue of Art XX Magazine. When I was approached to be a regular contributor, I jumped at the chance. Having appeared in the first issue through an article about twincest, I knew the publication firsthand for its authentic approach to feminism and realistic...

Brass Tacks: Purveyors of Radical Effectiveness

It’s nearing tax time and I was just reminded of my friend’s business called Brass Tacks: Purveyors of Radical Effectiveness. They offer personal finance services including individual filers tax preparation and support services for businesses and non-profits. Check them out at www.radicaleffectiveness.com From their site: …Brass Tacks was born to provide accessible financial and organizational...

One Hundred Push-ups

After hearing friends chart their progress on HundredPushups.com, I finally caved in and am taking the test. I hope to be able to do 100 by New Years. Not sure if that’s enough time but we’ll see how close I get. The initial test is pretty intimidating, with large leaps in ability. For example, Week...

Vote Porn

This is a stimulating election to say the least, both on the National front and also here in San Francisco as some pretty hefty ballot measures are on the table in terms of civil rights. I’m only going to touch upon a couple of items. If you’re not yet decided and need a second opinion...

Researching who and what to vote for…

I’m interested in what The League of Pissed Off Voters have to say, with the exception of their Prop K “No Endorsement”… If you have 10 minutes comment or email them to let them know how important it is for them to support Prop K. I know a lot of people who look to them...

Asian Male Pornstar Article is up on Good Vibes Magazine

Remember the blog I wrote back in… April… about the lack of Asian Men (and to be specific, straight Asian American men) in porn? Well, I interviewed Jeffery Lei, director of the ‘documentary’ Dick Ho: Asian Male Pornstar and it was picked up by Good Vibes Magazine. It’s the lead article on their site, so...

When you’re not as flexible as your fantasy

I have severe neck pain right now. What’s it from? Sex. From burrowing my head into the mattress at a crazy angle that kind of hurt but in a raw sex pain kind of way (which isn’t cool the next three days later). Let this be a lesson to you all. Mattresses are bouncy and...
