A Chloe Jones Anecdote: The HIV Rumor

From the Gene Files, July 12, 2004: Porn Valley- I always know when John Bowen’s in town. I spend more time in restaurants than out of them. Over breakfast this morning Bowen was talking about some of the projects he’s shot in Brazil. I feel there’s going to be a mighty big story coming out in porn the end of the year relative to at least one of them but, for now, can’t utter a word.

On the subject of food, however, Chloe Jones’ comes up with Bowen telling me about a shoot he hired Jones for in Brazil where all she did was puke her guts out. Bowen tells me he met Jones indirectly through Jeff Mullen, yadda, yadda, yadda. Got some pictures, and, from the pictures which were of a Penthouse-type centerfold, Bowen gathered that Jones was quite the looker. And so Bowen made a deal sight unseen on the phone and had Jones come down to Brazil to shoot for him.

“It was a nightmare, ” Bowen tells me, being only the wiser now in hindsight he feels. Nonetheless, Bowen went through with the project and shot Jones for a couple of movies titled, Chloe Jones: You Don’t Know Me 1 & 2 for New Sensations. Aptly named because Bowen figured from the looks of things he was getting Jones’ mother instead.

Bowen seems to think he got a hold of some pictures of Jones that were ten years-old. Another thing Bowen discovered was the fact that Jones is epileptic and is prone to seizures. “What was that movie, The Exorcist?” he asks. “Chloe was puking, screaming and yelling obscenities.” Bowen even claims he has loads of footage of Jones passed out to back up the story and supposedly a bunch of it is on the DVD version of Chloe Jones 1.

“Chloe puked in some of the most beautiful cities in Brazil,” Bowen says dryly and compared working with Jones to being on a Janis Joplin tour. “Americans don’t travel well,” Bowen states categorically.

The first night Jones was in town, she overdosed on her epileptic medicine, according to Bowen. She was rushed to the hospital but was able to shoot later. Jones, while in Brazil, also had a thing going on with one of the local talent named Bad Boy. Their off camera romance so consumed Jones that she was never in the mood to actually fuck on camera. Neither did she seem to be in the mood for dining out. Bowen recalled one instance where he took Jones to one of the country’s premier seafood joints only for Jones to turn her nose up at a $700 meal and request a hamburger.

“Americans don’t travel well,” Bowen repeats. “They wind up in fetal positions overseas because they’re only used to things they can find in the states.”

But what really added texture to Jones’ visit to Brazil was a scandal that involved her and Brazil’s equivalent of Sylvester Stallone, Alexandre Frota. According to Bowen, there was a big buzz over the fact that Frota was going to appear in a porn movie-Chloe Jones 2. Bowen tells me the movie was so successful that the competition down there put rumors out that Frota got HIV and had given it to Jones who was now dying. According to Bowen, the rumor eventually died of natural causes but didn’t alleviate the fact that Jones nearly threw up on every cock she sucked.

And if he didn’t get the point across that Americans don’t travel well, Bowen said there was another instance of it involving Samantha Sterlyng who came down to Brazil to shoot for him. According to Bowen, Sterlyng was the one who wound up in the fetal position over a McDonald’s run in which she claims the burgers and fries “tasted different.” Bowen claims Sterlyng also left him with a $650 telephone bill and little else because she never wound up doing a scene.

“She was five minutes into a girl-girl when she claimed the other girl bit her clit,” Bowen says. “Other than that she did some dialogue.” Bowen said he’d rather push red hot needles through his eyeballs than be faced with a prospect of ever working with Sterlyng again.

Gene sez: Some people who man their sites are gentlemen and did the gentlemanly thing by acknowledging Adultfyi for stirring the Chloe Jones pot. The offers some Jones retrospective. Jones aka Melinda Taylor was born June 17, 1975 in Texas. According to an interview with Jeff Mullen, Jones’ former publicist, describes her as a cool, cigarette smoking, beer drinking Texas girl.

“It’s no secret that Chloe had a long history of illness, including epilepsy, which I witnessed,” says Mullen. “She was on a lot of prescribed medication, which caused her problems.” Mullen describes Jones as a ferocious, protective mother who put her three children first before anything else. Mullen states that Jones was in the industry primarily to earn money for her family. “She was a fun girl,” he says. “I heard so many horror stories about her that were not the Chloe that I saw. And I saw the good, the bad and the ugly. I saw everything.” Jones, a former Penthouse Pet, who was subsequently dropped from Vivid was on prescribed drugs and had kidney and liver problems along with bouts of epilepsy

“I found out about [Chloe’s death] Saturday,” says Mullen. “She died at 4am. Karen [Struble] called me. Out of respect to her family, they asked that I not mention it to anybody until they figure out funeral plans.” According to Mullen, Jones, ironically, had entertained plans of becoming a mortician. “She wanted to embalm people and do the whole funeral thing.”

Jones, who started stripping at 17, got into the business in 2001. At 17 she married her second cousin, according to something she once wrote on her website. Jones also wrote on her site about having Leukemia : “It is true that I recently fractured my arm in 6 different places in January 2000 upon returning from the CES Convention in Las Vegas and discovered I have Leukemia when surgery was done to repair my arm. This of course was highly unexpected disappointing information…”

Besides her three children, Jones is survived by her husband who used the stage name Michael Scorpio.

Jones, May of last year appeared on KSEX:

Porn Valley- Calling in from Texas, Chloe Jones was on The Wanker Show, Monday night. Jones was promo’ing her site plus the opportunity to win a date with her via the website which features the contest rules. Jones, who’s recently separated, explained that by buying a couple of pictures, fans are entitled to six free entries.

“We’re going to pay for airfare, hotel, limo, dinner, entertainment- basically a normal date,” she explained. “This will be a high class date. In addition, Jones said the guy will receive $1,000 to spend on the date. “If we like each other, when the camera’s not going, we do it.” Jones credits her feature dancing agent with helping to get the ball rolling on the idea. “This was an excellent way to interact with my fans.”

With Wankus observing that co-ho Rebecca Love was also from Texas, Jones said she knew Love’s name from somewhere, that Love had sex with her ex-husband Michael Scorpio. “I remember her business card, that’s how I know her,” Jones said.

Asked if she ever got mistaken for the Chloe with the single name, Jones said they met at a convention in Las Vegas few years ago. “She had the audacity to ask me if I was going to change my name. I don’t think she knew that this was name that I had for 25 years. She’s nice and we settled everything.”

Jones came to L.A. at the age of 18. “I was an exhibitionist I guess,” she says. “At the age of 16 I started developing large breasts and I had a tight body. I started entering pageants and everything and won Miss Texas. I said, shit, I can do this. I can do Playboy.

With $400 to her name, she jumped in her car and made the drive to L.A.. Knowing then what she knows now, Jones said she would never had made the drive. Jones said she got screwed over a few times but didn’t get caught in the casting couch web. “If I did I’d probably be a huge success in Hollywood, now.”

Jones did a few mainstream project that included Baywatch and Diagnosis Murder. Asked how she got to meet High Hefner, Jones said she ran into the Playboy scouting agent at the Hotel Roosevelt. He kept telling me you’re so perfect for Playboy. He actually introduced me to Marilyn Grabowski.

“I did a test shoot and wanted me. They said Hef liked me. I was, like, I get to go to the Playboy Mansion!” Jones was told that she had “a chameleon face.”

“Every picture they took of me, I looked different in every picture. I don’t look like the same person.”

Complimenting women from Texas, Wankus, who used to do a radio show in Dallas, said Texas women are very beautiful. “And they’re down to earth. They’re not like L.A. girls who are hot but they’re just fucking stuck up whores.”

Jones figures she’s done between 15 and 20 adult movies. “I was so against porn,” she admits. “For 8 years I would never do porn. I hated it. I didn’t want to be associated with porn but after I met the people in porn, they’re the coolest fucking people. When I found out that they’re down-to-earth and most don’t screw you around, I said I can do this. I love sex.” Now divorced, Jones said she plans on going back full blast. “I want to make more movies.”

Jones said she was a virgin when she turned 18 but began touching herself when she was 16. “I didn’t know what I was doing. The first time I gave a blowjob I thought that you actually took the penis out and blew on it. I was humiliated. The whole town knew about it. So I actually had to go back and give him the blowjob of a lifetime.

Wankus said he heard from someone in the business that the term blowjob originated from the Stag films from the Twenties. “Directors on set would say, ‘take it out and blow on it to get it hard.’ And the girls would actually take it out and blow on it thinking that was going to help get it hard. But it became shortened to giving a blowjob.”
