The Year in Review Continued: GayVN’s Honor an Underage Performer, and Michael Lucas Goes Nuts

Greg Sakas at least had better luck than Rick Krial. After battling the anti-porn idiots in New Bern, North Carolina for two years, Sakas won his fight.

Sakas, whose store was raided twice and his inventory confiscated in a preponderance issue, eventually filed a lawsuit against the city, including the police chief, Frank Palombo, and several detectives.

Depositions were going to be taken, but at the eleventh hour, both the city and the police dept., decided to settle the case with a tentative agreement.

“It’s a total win for us, and a win for the state of North Carolina [meaning adult store operators],” Sakas proclaimed. On the other hand, Sakas’ Wilmington store, Intimate Bliss, which was also raided, was shut down.

Proving that the south could rise again after a defeat, West Virginia went after MILF actress Alex Monroe, aka Alexandria Imperial, for employing an underage stripper at a W.V. nightclub Imperial and her husband owned.

Imperial, 33, faces a felony charge of employing a minor for sexually explicit conduct, according to a criminal complaint. Imperial allegedly “knew or should have known” that a 17-year-old girl was working in Club Venus, a Hepzibah strip joint.

The Magistrate Court complaint notes that cops seized a video from the club showing the teen, identified only as “H.D.,” removing her clothes and “performing a private dance in a back room” for a female patron.

Imperial and her spouse, free on $50,000 bond, face up to ten years in jail if convicted of the charge. Imperial’s husband Brett, 20, was also charged because he allegedly knew the dancer was underage. Alexandria Imperial has performed in scores of adult films as “Alex Monroe” or “Alisandra.”

The adult industry mourned the passing of Donald “Sandy” Sarnblad. He was 78. Originally from Worcester, Mass., Sarnblad’s career in the adult film business goes back to the 1970s. He worked for VCX owner Norm Arno at S & L Distributors and went on to become a part of the original VCX home video sales team. Sarnblad later worked for Jack Gallagher at Sidney Niekirk’s Cal-Vista, where he hired the young Steve Hirsch. Sarnblad retired from the biz in 2001 and moved to Las Vegas. He passed away two months after suffering a stroke.

Remember the “Penis Pump Judge” Donald D. Thompson? Looking to suck more retirement pay out of the System – Thompson was getting $7,789 a month when his judicial retirement benefits were cut off. He asked an Oklahoma County judge to reinstate his judicial retirement pay.

Ain’t bad when you get a celebrity plugging your porn parody on national TV. In that respect, Zach Braff gave a PR goose to ‘Scrubs’ a Porn Parody produced by New Sensations on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

“‘Scrubs’ is being made into a movie,” Braff announced on Kimmel’s late-night talk show on ABC. “I wouldn’t get too excited — it’s a porno movie.”

After the crowd cheered wildly, Braff exclaimed, “They got more excited! Someone sent this to me, this is not a joke. They are making ‘Scrubs’ into a triple-X porno. On the web they showed the porn stars that are playing each one of us.”

Braff and Kimmel then went through some cast photos and the porn stars that are playing them.

“This girl’s gonna be Sarah [Chalke, who plays Dr. Elliot Reid on the show],” Braff said, holding up a picture of Ashlynn Brooke. “I think it’s a good match.”

Braff’s porn doppelganger, James Deen, elicited the most applause. “My guy looks like there’s nothing the director would say that he’d be like ‘nah dude, I’m not doing that.’”

As far as PR bullshit goes, we think this story was a good example of it. TMZ reported that sources told them “the entire Kardashian family is ‘taking legal action’ against Hustler Entertainment after learning about the XXX spoof of their reality show which the smut peeps creatively titled, “Keeping it Up For the KardASSians.”

[Of course, this is the same family that skipped out on a check at Jerry’s Deli in Woodland Hills.]

Continues TMZ: “We’re also told the people at E! Entertainment are also considering their legal options — it might be because the signature ‘whistly theme song’ in the porno sounds awfully similar to the one in the show.”

While Penthouse was doing the same, cost-cutting Playboy confirmed that their NY offices were also closing. About 100 jobs were affected and although some employees would transfer to offices in Chicago, or be given other options, the “majority” would leave the company. Playboy claimed it would be saving $5 Million annually by such a move. [Closing the mansion would save a lot more.]

You know that A-Rod is a Charlie Sheen story in the making. NYC Madam Kristin Davis of the Eliot Spitzer scandal, gave a hint when she claimed she dated the Yankee third baseman and provided hookers, well because he was so “charming”.

So charming that in 2007, Rodriguez was photographed in Toronto with former stripper, the square-jawed Joslyn Morse, who refused to say if they’d had sex. Another stripper, Candice Houlihan, claimed she and the Bronx Bomber had a two-night stand in 2004. Those actions prompted Cynthia Rodriguez to file for divorce. Her lawyer said at the time that A-Rod had “an affair of the heart” with songstress Madonna. Not to forget the recent fling with Hollywood bimbo Kate Hudson.

Proof that Will Ryder’s probaly better able to handle porn in the cockpit was the fact that United Airlines had to settle a Federal sexual-harassment lawsuit filed by a former pilot who grounded herself after repeatedly finding pornography hidden in the cockpits of domestic airline flights.

Details of the settlement with former Capt. Lisa Stout are secret. The 2-year-old lawsuit which sounds like a plot from a Ryder movie, was resolved just weeks before it was set to go to trial before U.S. District Judge John Coughenour in Seattle.

Court documents show that Stout, a United 737 captain based out of Seattle, found pornographic photos of women on more than 20 flights in 2004 and 2005. Her lawsuit alleged that United’s efforts to catch the perpetrators were inadequate and the company retaliated against her after she reported it.

Soaring in the clouds over the spite, Donny Long’s girlfriend, Jenni, then went on the Internet and took AVN to task for being unprofessional. Imagine that.

“I was quite shocked by an article AVN wrote about Donny,” she wrote. “I immediately got upset reading half way through. How unprofessional can they be? I was there through the whole interview. Donny asked to be recognized for his hard work and his company, not with insulting sarcastic comments and effortless internet research.”

“The article talks about the battle with Christian xxx and the long girls, which is old news the kind of stuff you can find off Google. You would think AVN would have the ability and intelligence to come up with something new and different. What is the point of an interview if you hardly wrote about anything he said? One thing I hate the most is when someone twist your words around.”

“What upsets him the most is they ignore him for this long and finally contact him only because they saw banner on [at least my banners are reasonably priced] and wanted to get him to spend some money with them. The article even says it all “with the potential banner ad at stake” Let me define this for you; AVN finally took the effort to acknowledge Donny only because they needed the money.”

Hear much about Bo Kenney and SexZ Pictures this year? Neither have we. Time was when you’d read something about the company at least once a week. However Kenney’s enterprise in Alexandra, Virginia – Le Tache- was taking some heat this year. Le Tache is described as a “couples boutique,” more commonly known as a sex shop, sandwiched between art galleries whose offerings are more common in the Old Town section of Alexandra than colorful vibrators and steamy DVDs.

“It’s created a lot of dialogue in town,” said Robert Lee King, 61, who owns and lives in an abutting building. “It seems from my perspective to be out of place for what this section of Old Town is all about.”

That’s a polite way of calling it an eyesore.

Regardless, Kenney in a NY Times article, said business has been brisk.

“As far as my neighbors go, everybody’s been decent to me and civil, “ he said. “What we’ve tried to do is blend into the community.”

Quotes the Times: Mr. Kenney insists that a store encouraging sexual liberty is right at home on a street where the nation’s forefathers walked.

“I think that they still want their freedom” in Old Town, he said. “I know people say, ‘Well, George Washington slept across the street.’ Well, George and Martha had sex.”

And who could forget how, at the GayVN Awards, Michael Lucas called the cops on Brent Corrigan’s boyfriend Eric Paul Martinez. Jason Sechrest was the first to report the fact that Lucas filed a police report and planned to get a restraining order against Corrigan’s boyfriend following an ugly incident at an after party.

“He threatened my life at the after party,” Lucas told Sechrest. “He hit me and told me he would splash acid in my face. Police took a report and I am filing a restraining order. I should be able to speak my mind without being threatened. His boyfriend is crazy.”

A lot of it had to do with the fact that Lucas was galled that Corrigan should be honored at the event because Corrigan had knowingly been an underaged performer in the porn industry. Lucas made it clear he was of the opinion that Corrigan “jeopardized our industry.” According to one report, “The show was brought to a screeching halt. Some in the crowd began to boo and catcall, while others applauded.”

Said one report: Corrigan, famous for his role in the murder of porn producer Brian Kocis, won three awards at the GayVNs: Best Professional Amateur Video for Summit, Best Twink Video for Just the Sex 1 and Best Bottom Performer Of The Year. But when Lucas took the stage, he shamed his own industry for awarding prizes to a guy who became a porn star while still a minor, putting the entire industry at risk, argued Lucas, for things like regulation and policing. (Anyone owning Corrigan’s first videos, filmed before he was 18, is now technically in possession of child pornography.)

After the show, Lucas released a follow-up statement:

“It is shocking how lightly the industry is taking this matter,” said Lucas. “By falsifying his government-required identification, Brent Corrigan put himself, producers, and the general public at the mercy of federal prosecution. Because Brent performed while he was underage, all the material that he appeared in during that time is now considered child pornography, and rightfully so. However, anyone in possession of those titles, who purchased them or viewed them assuming that the producer had taken the necessary precautions to eliminate the risk, now has illegal pornography on their hands. Can you imagine the trauma of having to deal with something like that? And with the internet being what it is, who knows what images of Brent are legal and illegal? This is a disgusting and horrifying question.”

“…I’m incredibly dismayed by those who are questioning me on the details of the situation that occurred at the GayVN Awards. I read posts by bloggers stating that they know Brent Corrigan’s boyfriend and that he is not the violent type.” Lucas then offered proof to the contrary with a variety of links.

Fuck off, die and make the check payable to cash – Feel as though you want to get on the conversational side of Satan? Well Matt “The Lord” Zane has just the answer. Matt the Lord announced that he was planning a book on Satanism then created something of a stir when he contacted his friends looking for donations to get it published. All he wanted was a simple $1 donation.

However, it was his unorthodox way of getting people to contribute, that brought new meaning to the initial P.R.. As Matt The Lord saw it, there was NO excuse not to donate. Heaven forbid if you don’t because Matt was going to come down hard on you: “Words are cheap…” “You truly don’t give a shit. You are shit.” … “I would like to say fuck you as well. I don’t need luck.” … “Stop trying to call or text to save your ass. I see you now. Fuck off.” That was some of Matt the Lord’s more colorful marketing rhetoric.

Why he’s not getting an AVN marketing award is beyond us.

As if Playboy needed more headaches than it already has, it got hit with yet another lawsuit when former fashion director Joseph DeAcetis nailed them $4M paper. DeAcetis, 45, said his boss at the men’s magazine often “made fun” of him because he was gay and his hair was gray.

The lawsuit also said DeAcetis’s boss, editorial director Christopher Napolitano, “referred to plaintiff and other homosexuals as ‘girls’ and laughed at [him] because of his enjoyment of baseball because it was not a girl sport.” DeAcetis said he first started his gig as a freelancer in 2000, and was made a staffer in 2005.

The suit goes on to recount how after DeAcetis went on a TV morning show for some promotional work, Napolitano complained that “grey hair was visible” and he “looked old.” [Who’s the gay one you wonder?]

Napolitano was also supposed to have told DeAcetis his younger assistant should do any future TV appearances because “his was the right look” the magazine was hoping to project. DeAcetis said he was fired two months later because of his age and sexual orientation. The suit sought back pay as well as damages for DeAcetis’s “mental anguish, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life.”

TT, we hardly knew Ye- TT Boy had to move his company lock stock and barrel to Florida as a result of the HIV scare several years ago which involved his chief employee, Darren James.

Do ya know that Hunter Bryce could have been a college professor but turned to porn? Yeah, you read that headline right. A press release went out stating that Bryce, “the confessed book junkie boasts degrees in literature and creative writing, but as she worked on her master’s degree in hopes of become a college professor, Hunter’s interest in sex finally overwhelmed her.”

“The cost was ridiculous,” Hunter says. “Porn was something I always wanted to do and finally I just did it.”

Me? MIT tried to recruit me for its advanced logarithm program but I was so overwhelmed, I took the summer job at the drive-in movie refreshment stand instead.
