Rob Black to Christy Canyon: You Hung Out With Guys Who Shook Down the Business

Every time bloggers like Mike South open their mouths, they prove they know dick about the porn industry. I could have told the story about Christy Canyon and Tommy Sinopoli [I almost came to blows with Sinopoli at Butchie Peraino’s studio on one occasion], but I figured the pleasure would be all Rob Black’s.

Black explained how he was smoking his medicine this weekend when Tom Byron showed him an email from Christy Canyon. Byron told Black to read what she said.

“I’m sitting down and I read it. I’m, like, so? First off Christy is a 30 year veteran give or take. Christy can say what she wants. I have no problem with that. The problem I had was she wasn’t personal enough. I’m going to elaborate more on that. She opened this huge door.”

Black talked about six degrees of separation where everyone’s connected in some way especially in porn.

“Christy you didn’t go personal enough. ‘Rob is so jealous.’ I can’t argue with you, you’re a beautiful woman. I can’t attack you. There’s nothing to attack. But I got to think you were protecting your boss. I do think is still owned by Vivid and that would show bias.”

“Come on Christy, I have a thing for all the old timers. There was a time when I was even nice to Amber Lynn for a fucking month.”

Black then brought up IVD, which is owned by Frank Koretsky, noting that in any other industry IVD has an anti-trust monopoly. Black used to do the buying for his father’s bookstore and would deal with IVD.

Black would attend the IVD open houses as a buyer. He recalled when Mike Savage set up a blowjob from a porn star of which Black partook.

“I think I blew a load in someone’s office,” said Black.

“I did the whole warehouse-thing it was awesome. They sent me back to the airport in a limousine, and there’s these two hot chicks in the limousine. The one girl I used to jack off to when I was 12. But she never took a load in the face. The other little chick was like this Pamela Anderson.”

Black introduced himself and told them he was going to make movies like his father.

“The little girl was Jenna Jameson and the other was Christy Canyon. We get to the airport and we all get out.”

Black wound up spending some time with Canyon and they talked. Then she got on her plane and he went back to Rochester. He was so enthralled that he met Christy Canyon.

Years later, Black was in LA and remembered going on a set that Jameson was on.

“I just got my job with Elegant and Jenna was sitting in the makeup chair. We go, ‘Heh, we were in a limo together.’ So then Christy- I never knew- how Christy Canyon affected my life in six degrees of separation.”

Black recalled how he was ten playing in the yard when federal agents busted his father’s door down. His mother was making lemonade and cheese with crackers and sandwiches.

“There I am playing with my toys. I go outside to play again, then the door kicks open with the glass shattering everywhere. I don’t even know what the fuck is going on. Like 25 federal agents stormed in. They grab me. It’s pandemonium. While this is happening, simultaneously my grandparents mobile home in Miami was also being raided. This was serious heavy shit where the Feds hit targets all at once.”

Black said his uncle Chuck’s home got hit as well.

“It was a 100 man task force. My dad was in Las Vegas at the Tyson fight. My mom is going what the hell is going on. They whip out the arrest warrants, all these things for pandering, for making Backside to the Future. They shot in Malibu Hills. Jim South was hit. Stacy Donovan was a corroborating witness. This was an elaborate sting. You had rats. Stacy Donovan was a rat. There’s my mom with this huge indictment.”

“Did my father hang out with mobsters in Rochester? Maybe. I don’t know. But these papers say my dad’s been under investigation for a year. It talked about witnesses- Stacy Donovan and cocaine on the set.”

Black said his parents almost divorced on another occasion and were considering it again after this incident.

Black talked about how his father and uncle opened the Zane Bros. office in California with Barry Kalfin who was the sales manager.

“My dad and my uncle had this office. Someone came in and said you have to pay up to be in the Valley. Lo and behold a couple of guys come in the office and break it up- old school shit.

“They call my dad who’s going oh shit. Tommy Sinopoli and Mitchell Herrera were the boys they had to pay, but my dad’s a nobody. These guys were terrorizing the Valley. My dad’s going this is how they are, really?

“My dad figures we’re going to have to pay some people. They figure what’s the best thing to do?

“The Vegas “shows” [expos] is when you could confront somebody. They go to one of the Vegas shows, and there’s Tommy. My dad looks to this Herrera guy and starts running at this cocksucker. Why is this guy walking to me real quick Herrera’s thinking? Everybody’s realizing who everybody is.

“Sinopoli tears through the casino and my dad and Chuck Zane are in a full run. My dad’s yelling you cocksucker. The other guys are yelling the gangsters from New York!! Other people are going we’ve been liberated.

“How do you think my dad and uncle got indicted?” Black asked rhetorically.

“Deep in that report were the rats. Elements sifted themselves out with this person and that person and these people. Names kept coming up – Herrera and Sinopoli.”

Black said his father was now looking at a second strike.

“Christy, that was your boyfriend [Sinopoli]. You were with all those guys. You were at the mother ship. Christy Canyon, you hung out with guys who shook down the porn business. You hung around with guys who almost cost my mom her marriage.”
