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

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...
Pornography in Helsinki: WONDERLUST Festival of Diverse, Conscious Sex

Pornography in Helsinki: WONDERLUST Festival of Diverse, Conscious Sex

I’m off for Finland tomorrow to appear as a special guest June 13-14 at WONDERLUST, a new “diverse and conscious sex” festival in Helsinki, Finland. While there, I’ll present an evening of short films I’ve curated (Spectacular Porn) and my workshop (Fucking for REEL). I’ve presented versions of the workshop at PornFilmFest Berlin and Princeton...
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...
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

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...
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...

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...
Gentleman Handling

Gentleman Handling

Gentleman Handling is a drippingly gorgeous website devoted to the artistic and erotic display of male masturbation. (Yea, I know “drippingly” isn’t an actual word, but that’s exactly how I’d describe something wet and poised with sexual anticipation. Feel me?) I’ll let the trailer speak for itself: From the about page: What we’ve made here,...
Front-Row Squirting: Close-up of Female Ejaculation using a Speculum

Front-Row Squirting: Close-up of Female Ejaculation using a Speculum

I’m pretty excited about this shoot with Courtney Trouble for QueerPorn.TV. We worked with feminist sex toy store Smitten Kitten to create a G-Spot video that shows the use of sex toys, communication, and demonstrates safer sex and female ejaculation. And now it’s live! Watch the trailer: Ejaculation Close Up with Jiz Lee and Courtney...
Doing It Again: Support Tobi Hill-Meyer's New Trans Woman Porn Project

Doing It Again: Support Tobi Hill-Meyer’s New Trans Woman Porn Project

Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” Though he may have not been thinking about pornography when he said it, the message most definitely applies to sexual expression and visibility. It’s been my motto, in porn and otherwise — it’s a matter of being pro-active and creating positive...
Mommy Is Coming - Frameline36!

Mommy Is Coming – Frameline36!

Mommy Is Coming is finally COMING to San Francisco! It is making its USA premiere at Frameline36 on June 16th. This is definitely a film to catch. It’s Cheryl Dunye’s first foray into adult cinema. The sex scenes are explicit, and part of the plot. Mommy Is Coming (VOD) was awarded at the Feminist Porn Awards...

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...
MOMMY IS COMING to Berlinale!

MOMMY IS COMING to Berlinale!

I’m excited to travel to Berlin tomorrow to attend the premiere of MOMMY IS COMING at the 62nd Berlinale, Berlin International Film Festival.

2012 AVN Award Nominations

The 2012 AVN Award Nominations have been announced, but this year I’m not attending the event. I’ve been traveling so much in the recent months that I haven’t had a moment to go back home and visit my family. So I’m taking the opportunity to go back to Maui, and do all the things I’ve...

Feminist Porn Awards 2012 – Call for Nominations

I’m excited to share that it’s time for the nominations period for the Feminist Porn Awards. The event is hosted by the sex toy store “Good For Her” in Toronto. Each year the screening and awards ceremony gets bigger and bigger, grabbing the attention of international media and raising important discussions about pornography. And bringing...

This is an introduction, and an invitation. The introduction is for my longer blog post which I will publish October 21st. The invitation is for you to join me and my friend Courtney Trouble in bringing awareness to one of the most amazing sexual acts I know and love: fisting. Anyone who does it knows...

5 Ways YOU Can Fight Porn Piracy

One of the biggest issues facing the adult industry is piracy. In the days of VHS and DVD, file sharing between fans meant burning a copy and hand-walking it over to your buddies. I had an old college friend tell me she was given an untitled disc from a pal of hers who said “this...

J-Bird’s Queer Porn Story

I shot with J-Bird not too long ago on CrashPadSeries.com. I had such a fun, sweet time with him! J-Bird is a hot new genderqueer porn performer on the scene, and definitely a star to look out for. Check out our scene, and be sure to catch him on Twitter, Facebook, and his adorably awesome Youtube Channel. His illustrated queer...

100th Episode of CrashPadSeries.com… with Nina Hartley!

*pinches self* Nope, that didn’t work… *slaps self*… maybe better… maybe… How excited am I!? First of all, Nina Hartley — who many people may know from the film “Boogie Nights” and others may know and love from her countless sex ed videos (and of whom, many supported as she recovers from surgery) — recently inquired...

Cherry Episode 2 – Trailer

Check out the trailer for Cherry Episode 2, by Jewelbox Films/Digital Playground. Kay Brandt is the director of the series, and it’s really new grounds for mainstream pornography. I have a small but noticeably distinguished part in it as androgynous DJ Carson and have sex with Andy San Dimas. Read more about Cherry in my...

A Little Update on Anal Sex

A few days ago I traveled to LA to shoot for Tristan Taormino‘s next film project on “pegging”, or strap-on sex for men. This will be her second film on the subject, the first being Tristan Taormino’s Expert Guide to Anal Pleasure for Men which was awarded the 2010 Feminist Porn Awards “Smutty Schoolteacher Award...

How amazing is this pulp-inspired movie poster!? Tristan Taormino‘s newest film is “Rough Sex 3: Adrianna Nicole’s Dangerous Mind“, the latest in her “Rough Sex” series. It stars some pretty amazing people, including some of my friends and people I have met and love, such as Keni Styles, Danny Wylde, Evan Stone, Jada Fire, and...

GUSH: The Official Guide to the G-Spot & Female Ejaculation

I just got word that Good Vibration’s sister company Good Releasing has just received their shipment of GUSH: The Official Guide to the G-Spot & Female Ejaculation.

Two Genderqueers in a Tub… Post Shoot Bath Time with J-Bird

After shooting for CrashPadSeries.com, new porn performer J-Bird and I decided to take a bath and invite the site’s awesome photographer Tristan Crane to take some photos of us. I couldn’t resist posting them here. Isn’t J-Bird such the cutie!?

Lady Porn Day and a Shout Out to Queer Transwomen Ladies in Porn

Rachel Rabbit Write of rabbitwrite.com has created a cool campaign, proclaiming February 22nd “Lady Porn Day”. What is Lady Porn Day? Rachel says it’s a day that encourages discussion and celebration of women empowerment from/with/in pornography. A large part of our culture still believes that women are incapable of owning our sexuality. This shows up...

Keying in on Crash Pad Series with J-Bird

I’m really excited about my newest shoot on CrashPadSeries.com. J-Bird is a cute genderqueer switch who swept me off my feet and was down to share fun sex with me in queer porn. Here’s their Youtube video, posted after the shoot. I’m so proud and excited for them! The photoset just went live; next weekend...

Submit to the Feminist Porn Awards

What is Feminist Porn? To me, it’s not an oxymoron. It’s any work that demonstrates sexual agency to all genders presented, no matter the context. It’s often conscious of social climate, and strives to educate or empower both its featured performers and directors, as well as its audience. It is sex-positive, and the producers perform well...

AVN Awards: The Sequel…

I’m back from the AVN Awards and am nearly caught up. Firstly, thank you everyone who supported my trip in particular Njoy Toys, ASLAN Leather, Twisted Monk, Five & Diamond, and the many awesome folks who purchased a special order that helped me not only get myself out to Las Vegas for the annual Adult...

Billy Castro and Jiz Lee… sitting in a tree…

F-I-S-T-I-N-G… and I guess instead of sitting in a tree, Billy and I are standing — fisting — in a shower. It’s a super special, exclusive scene that was shot during our filming of Billy Castro Does the Mission. (Yup! The sex didn’t stop in the living room.) Sign up for a membership to NoFauxxx to...

Casting Couch: Porn Opportunities for Queers

I’m often asked “how can I get into queer porn”? Well, here’s some opportunities! A while ago I wrote the blog post “Getting into Porn, the Queer Way” with tips for people interested in applying to porn work. Looking back on it, I still think it’s pretty relevant! Give it a read if it’s your...

Or perhaps I should say… YOU want my Queer Porn TV. Or… It’s YOUR Queer Porn TV. Or heck, just… check it out! Queer Porn TV (QueerPorn.TV) is the new queer paysite “Public Access to the Sexual Underground” love-child of Courtney Trouble and Tina Horn. Tina is a fantastic model and sex educator and I write about...

AVN Awards 2011: Queers, Friends, and Beyond

I started this post last night, but then started to add links, and whoa there’s a lot… so it goes up this morning. Tonight I’m sitting in the same spot at the same cafe where earlier this year a very hot budding porn performer and good buddy Mickey Mod told me — and asked me...

Meet the Porn Queens

I’m pretty impressed with an article that came out recently in Marie Claire INDIA (NOT the US version, but the global one) written by Mandy Van Deven who also rights for Bitch Magazine, Curve Magazine, and a number of queer women/feminist publications in the United States. While I wish I could have seen the article...
