Back to Venus

IAFD is composed of a staff of volunteers who mostly spend their time working on what interests them along with running through the gambit of all of the corrections people submit to us. As some of you have surmised, my passion is photography following in the steps of the late Peter Van Aarle who used to methodically approach and take a photo of each person he met at the conventions. Not necessarily to make them look good but document their headshots for the purposes of IAFD.

I have taken over that role in my visits to the conventions where I am not as methodical and am quite biased about who I shoot knowing that I would rather spend time catching up with friends rather than approach a bunch of strangers that I don’t know.

This is what happens to me when I go to the European conventions. I don’t watch as much porn anymore and the scenes I do watch tend to be American since I am in the United States. Further, even if limited, I prefer to understand the dialog. So for the past four years, I’ve stayed away from Venus Berlin given the cost of travel and the limited amount of coverage I can offer you guys. Remember, we’re all volunteers.

Like the SEB show, Venus Berlin features a lot of nudity by women I haven’t the foggiest idea about. Not just German, but French, Italian, Spanish, Hungarian, Czech, and this year tons of Russians. Maybe two or three Americans thrown in. They may not have much live sex beyond masturbation, but the audiences still love what they are seeing.

The difference though between the show is that Venus is very organized and credited to producers of the show and the booths. Of course I didn’t learn this until the last day when I was wondering why everyone seemed to know where to be when the stage show starts and what it will feature. I looked at the program that was given to me on the first day and it was all there!

Some notes:

  • The most popular booth of the convention by far was for modelcentro, a website host for models. There were a group of Russian porn stars there from julmodel agency featuring Henessy that did a show every 15-30 minutes.

  • The second most popular booth was Salma de Nora, a Spanish producer based in Germany, which featured an international melange of pretty girls including the Romanian Julia de Lucia, Italian Valentina Bianco, Japanese Brazilian Miyuki Son,  and Spaniard Chiki Dulce. Unintentional comedy happened when I spoke almost exclusively in broken Spanish to Valentina even after she told me she was Italian.

  • I gabbed a lot with one of the few Americans, Kenna James, about veterinary schools.

  • Anny Aurora has developed an American accent when speaking English since I last talked to her, which was shocking because that was only nine months ago. What a lovely girl in person.

  • I caught up with Tarra White who greeted me with her boobs the first time I went to a European show. She is now one of the organisers of the Prague show.

  • My flash broke at the end of the first day from the amount of abuse it took from people jostling for their own photographs. The flash just fell off the camera while its foot still was still attached to the mount of my camera. I had to borrow a power drill just to remove the foot from my camera so that I could try to utilise a backup flash. When that didn’t work, I had to get creative in my exposures.
  • Which reminds me, it’s always good to see my boys Malte, Jacco, and Whitey.

Oh yes, the photos:

As Rare As A Stylish Mullet

On our Advanced Search page we have a “Sex Notes Search” which gives you a list of movies or performers which feature certain rare sex acts – things like Fisting, Squirting, DPP or DAP.

We were asked why we don’t include more “mundane” sex acts in that list, and the answer is because they’re ubiquitous, so returning a list of 10,000 performers who did a DP really isn’t that useful.

BUT, through some discussions (Thanks, Mike!) we looked at it a different way – instead of showing all performers who did a certain act; perhaps filter it down by rarity… so welcome – Performer Rarities!

rarityLet’s explain – the FACIAL is the Pidgey of the porn world.  They’re everywhere.  (Go Team Valor!)  But there are some performers, sometimes referred to as “Cum Dodgers”, who eschew the practice – so perhaps there’s some interest in seeing when these performers couldn’t or didn’t dodge.

So, we ran the numbers – we take the number of movies a performer took a facial in, divide it by the number of movies in that performer’s career, and we get their Career Facial Percentage.

It’s important to note here, that this is just the number of MOVIES that they took a facial in.  A simple boy/girl scene and a 100 Guy Gangbang count the same – once.

So, who is the rarest of them all? In the facial category, Felecia is the winner; having taken only a single facial in 499 movies, or a CFP (Career Facial Percentage) of 0.20%.  This stands to reason as she was primarily a g/g performer, and the other people with the lowest CFP are similarly g/g performers who occasionally crossed over to the b/g side.

‘Words With (Slutty) Friends’ featuring Samantha Bentley

wwsf-samantha-bentley

The use of Word Association in therapy has been employed by psychologist and psychiatrists alike as a means of creating a psychiatric evaluation of a patients since the early to mid 1900s. Upon its inception, many doctors using this method found that some part of the patients’ subconscious mind was controlling their conscious behavior and personality, and many experts in the field of psychology still believe that these responses can reveal things about the subconscious mind to this very day.

The evaluation itself is pretty simple. Participants are instructed to just respond to a given word spontaneously with the first word, thing, or phrase that comes to mind.

So, what is in the subconscious mind of a dirty little slut? Who really knows? But we here at IAFD.com do like finding out what your favorite pornstars are thinking about, just like the rest of you other perverts out there do, too.  Anyway, we just came right out and asked them in a feature we like to call ‘Words With (Slutty) friends. In this installment, we feature English crossover star and total badass Samantha Bentley!

Salon Erotico de Barcelona

After a ten year absence, I returned to Barcelona. The city and the women are still beautiful and the food and that DAMM beer are divine. Most important is the annual porn convention hosted there. The convention, formerly known as the Festival International de Cine Erotico de Barclona, is now run by different organizers under a different name, Salon Erotico de Barcelona (SEB), and in a different location from 10 years ago.

When people imagine what a porn convention would look like, SEB is probably the closest thing that you’re going to get. Maybe even more than they expected. You see porn stars having sex live on stage, in the audience, in the seating area, in the stairs, and in the bathroom. Hell you see frisky attendees engaging in the playtime beyond the normal perving that you expect out of these things. I think that is the biggest difference from ten years ago in that there is a lot more emphasis on stage sex than on dancing. The other big difference is that the gay booths and gay stages were integrated into the venue rather than being separated in another section.

Some notes:

  • My really rough understanding of Spanish played havoc on me when I was looking around for Amarna Miller. Little did I understand that she was the “portavoz” of SEB which meant she was the spokeswoman of the show. She was mostly away granting media appearances to promote the show but I did get to run into her. Still has friendly as ever, Amarna was mobbed by attendees when she was seen on the floor promoting a webcam company, Cam4.

  • Carolina Abril was easily the champion of the show. I met her in Berlin 4 years ago when she first started out and was the most accessible star on the floor. Not much has changed as she constantly engaged with the fans on behalf of actricesdelporno.com from opening to closing. She also performed a sex show every day at SEB. She also peed on me, err I mean water squirted on me and the crowd.

  • I didn’t see or remember any obvious American performers but I did manage to meet several English performers for the first time including Satine Spark and Stella Cox who are beautiful and friendly in person. I mean I knew they were attractive from the photos, but it is another thing to see the beauty in person. There were dozens of people coming up to Stella asking whether she would be performing on stage, interrupting our dinner and talk that I had to exasperatedly tell them that she was just visiting. Some kept following her around the entire show. Well I mean besides me.

  • Other performers that grabbed my attention were Spanish performers Zoe Doll (who reminded me of Amarna) and Zenda Sexy who humoured my broken Spanish.
