Erotica L.A. – An Observation or Two

Porn Valley- Minutes after I had snapped a pic of the lovely Monique Alexander at Erotica L.A. the fun begins. Fans apparently want to get some of their own provocative snaps of Monique and she’s standing up, obliging with some hints of PG-13 butt cleavage. Which immediately brings a floor supervisor over to the Outback Productions booth for a polite discussion with the company’s owner Nicole London about the show’s rules of decorum.

It wasn’t even that Alexander was showing anything from what I could see, but that’s the kind of restraint porn performers had to exercise this weekend at the L.A. Convention center, and London immediately has a dutiful conversation with Alexander who, under normal circumstances, is as as prim as Martha Stewart and as likely to get raucous in public arenas as Louisa May Alcott.

None of this faux morality, of course, could strike the disturbing image from my mind of one guy I saw strutting around in full makeup and a plaid school girl outfit.

I continued my trip up and down the aisles with the languid pace of a one-legged coolie, because that’s about the speed allowable under the circumstances with the mass of humanity pressing into one another. This was Saturday afternoon- the Yankees were in town, the freeways were a mess and a phone call placed to the convention later in the evening told me the crowds were even thicker and more immobile. That’s why I didn’t even attempt interviews but observations the brief time I was there.

One of those was seeing a very recognizable name in the business flopped out on a couch inside the Red Light District booth. I would even go so far as to say passed out because it sure as hell appeared as though someone resembling her boyfriend was attempting to revive her. Then, from what I was told, some very late night Friday night DVSX partying took a toll on a number of performers who attempted to communicate the next day, either through seance mediums, or in “Vegas voice” – a hoarse vocal condition usually acquired during AEE in January. Another girl who was signing and maintaining brilliant pace all day with a drink known as rum and coke finally had to be sent home Saturday afternoon.

If you were looking for an argument to support a condoms-only policy, you only had to check at the size of the Wicked Pictures booth.

After being turned down for a pack of cigarettes at a Burbank 7-Eleven Friday night because she looked too young and they woudn’t accept her three I.D.’s, Layla Jade was drumming up business for her upcoming X-Con in August

I also renewed old acquaintances with Colorado Joe who’s now Las Vegas Joe. Las Vegas Joe had Trinity James signing at his booth, and James, I gotta tell you, is the genuine article boasting a pretty face and an authentic sexual gleam in her eye, the likes of which you don’t see too often in this business. We hope to be chatting with James this week on

With a staunch commitment to working out, Gauge was also looking great particularly in light of all the good-natured age-japing she’s been taking as of late on her Distorted Reality Show, Her booth was promoting where she was selling everything from panties to screen savers. Meanwhile, Fran from Rodneyvision, who sports an adorable Bettie Page look, could just as well have been signing as the next girl. Because in a crowd where you couldn’t tell the Mcporn stars from the porn stars, the wife of a friend of mine was at the show the night before and was having her picture snapped by fans who figured pretty woman equals video slut.

After a number of close brushes at Sardos, I finally got to chat with the Atlanta-based Karina who’s now partnered with Chef Jeff in a business deal – not so unusual if not for the fact that it was a prediction I read to Jeff when I did his tarot cards a few months ago.

Mark Lasts was promoting a business partnership that’s promising a new video series, Mark is a genuinely nice man and I wish him all the best. You’ll certainly be reading more about him and his company on this site.

After a couple of chats on the phone I also finally got to pay the in-personal hellos to Lennie of Astrux who’s companyboasted a silver Mercedes Benz CLK GTR Roadster floor prop worth something like $3 mil. Will Wix directed the company’s first video Up in Da Club LA, which was the show piece of Astrux’s coming-out presentation.

Not expensive as the roadster, but certainly eyebrow- raising nonetheless, were figures being quoted to me which P.R. reps are apparently commanding to do industry publicity these days. Funny thing. Of my 18 years in the business, which included helming AVN, I couldn’t remember the last time a p.r. rep actually called and asked if I’d like to interview their client.
