xbiz_img05(Hey!  We announced our big new with a joint press release with Rog of RogReviews.com!  Here it is!)

(LOS ANGELES, CA) — The world’s leading source of adult film information IAFD.com and adult entertainment review and news site www.Rogreviews.com, are proud to once again be the recipient of an XBiz Award nomination. Joining some of the most popular and well-respected sites in adult entertainment in the Best Fan Site category, the sites proudly maintain their long-standing status as industry leaders.

“I am always honored to be included in this category,” says Rogreviews.com owner and head writer Roger Pipe. “I started the site years ago as a fan and have tried to provide other fans with honest reviews and entertaining interviews. To be included as a fan favorite alongside an amazing site like IAFD.com is really the ultimate compliment.

Joining other fan-friendly adult information sites such as AdultDVDTalk and XCritic, IAFD.com and  RogReviews.com are part of a community of sites designed to entertain and inform fans of adult entertainment and to help them better spend their hard earned dollars on quality smut.

“I am really proud to have the IAFD nominated as a favorite fan site,” says webmaster Jeff Vanzetti. “It takes a lot of work to maintain the massive amount of data on our site. A lot of people work very hard to keep our site going and it is always gratifying to see the hard work recognized.”

Live since 1998, RogReviews.com underwent a major overhaul three years ago and has been an XBiz Award nominee ever since.

“I would be remiss if I didn’t mention and thank my web mistress and partner Natalie Dawn. ” Pipe says. “She works incredibly hard to make the site run smoothly and deserves most of the credit. Plus she is way cuter so if I do win, I promise to make her go get the trophy.”

Ask the IAFD: Who Are The Tallest MODERN Pornstars, 2013 Edition

So, when we first listed the tallest adult film actresses, we (and our fans) discovered that the tallest female pornstars are from a bygone era. So, we made a list back in 2012 of the modern stars, and now we’ve updated it for 2013.   Our goal was to list the Top 20 actresses by height, but since there is a huge tie in the 5’11″ (180cm) range, we’re listing 31 performers.  We’ve added men this time, too, and to even out the ties, we’re listing 21 guys.

As you may have surmised, we’re a little partial to the Golden Age of Adult Cinema around here, so we were VERY excited to hear that Casey Scott, with help from Steven Morowitz and the awesome team over at Distribpix along with Joe Rubin from distributor Vinegar Syndrome, is curating four nights of 35mm smut to NYC, as part of the In The Flesh program at Anthology Film Archives.  Tickets are $10 per showing.  (AFA members get reduced rates.)

They’ll be showing 35mm prints of four movies from the Golden Age of Adult Cinema, with some of the production staff in attendance for Q&A after the showings.

December 5, 8:00 PMHigh Rise (1972) directed by Danny Stone (deceased); the film’s composer, Jack Urbont, will be attending in-person to “discuss his marvelous original score, including vocals by soul singer great Rhetta Hughes!”  According to curator, Casey Scott, “If you’re uncertain about watching an X-rated movie with an audience, never fear, this one is funny, visually stylish, and as I said in the Anthology calendar, “purely pleasurable”. It’s just so much fun!”

December 6, 8:00 PMThrough the Looking Glass (1976), directed by Jonas Middleton who will be in attendance.

December 7, 8:00 PMTake Off (1978), directed by Armand Weston, cinematographer Larry Revene will be in attendance

We send our condolences out to April Flores who unexpectedly lost her husband and partner, Carlos Batts, last night.

Carlos Batts, according to a jumble of tweets and status updates from friends, died suddenly last night, found by his wife, muse, and model, April Flores. Born in Baltimore, Batts came to L.A. and slowly but purposefully carved out a niche in “artcore” glamor photography using high-contrast L.A. (in addition to its porn stars) as a backdrop, and joining contemporaries Dave Naz, Ed Fox, and Steve Diet Goedde. Batts was 42.

But it was in April Flores that Batts found his anchor and inspiration. Batts was a relentless promoter of his work, and loved his wife, who was so often the subject of it. I am shocked that this vital young man is gone so soon, and am so proud to know April Flores, a beautiful person.

Back in 2001, CityPaper, the alternative paper in Baltimore, ran a profile/interview of Batts, subtitled Carlos Batts Wants You to Know That He Is Not a Pornographer. So What Is He?

He sums up his origin like this:

I went out there and I showed them this stuff, all my manipulations, all the images . . . I’m styling, I do the body paint. And I happened to have an outtake–before I beat the image up, I had an outtake of one of the girls, a Polaroid test. And the girl was very voluptuous, had long Bettie Page black hair, and [an editor said] said, “Would that girl be interested in working for our new magazine called Leg World?”

I had photographed a lot of people naked, but not in a superficial sense where it was about them being naked, you know what I mean? So even if she was hot, I’m never like, “Oh, yeah, you’re hot.” It was always like, I’m going to paint her green and do something with her. . . .

From the outtake, I asked my model, I said, “Hey would you be interested in doing this, something like a Bettie Page thing for this magazine.” She said, “Oh, yeah, that’d be cool.”

And growing up watching ’70s porn, ’80s porn . . . I’m driven to warm, deep yellow-orange-red colors. And I light everything backwards. I’m working at the lab, [and] Agfa film was the cheapest film. You get a three-pack for like $2.99 plus [an employee] discount. This film was so warm. And I lit it wrong. I used the wrong bulbs. The stuff came out really deep, really moody colors.

And they loved it, because it was almost like Bettie Page, and it was contemporary, but kind of ’70s. It was really warm. I love lighting it that way. And from there, they were like, “Oh, Carlos, shoot some stuff.”

His work was captured in four books, Fat Girl, Crazy Sexy Hollywood, American Gothic and Wild Skin.

He was 40.
