Porn Capitol Moving to Phoenix?

In another year the porn corpse will be so stiff you’ll be able to surf on it. But idiots keep writing these stories.

from www.digitalcity.com – The recession-proof porn industry has proven it can’t withstand the current economy as well as it once thought. Not that the industry is retooling itself but it’s definitely working on making the money it used to make.

One of the things many are doing is moving to Phoenix, Ariz. Because so many are doing it, Phoenix may replace San Fernando Valley, Calif. as the porn capitol of America.

In a snafu earlier this year, a Fight-Club type prank was pulled when thirty seconds of porn cut into the last 3 minutes of the Super Bowl on TV sets all over Tuscon. One of the two clips that interrupted the game was from Club Jenna. Like the Arizona Cardinals, Jenna Jameson calls Arizona home.

Jameson isn’t the only porn resident. A lot more are picking up and moving to Phoenix, Ariz. Whatever the reason for the porn-on-Superbowl stunt, the porn industry nestled into Phoenix’s couch a couple of weeks later with the 1st Annual Arizona Porn Star Ball. On hand for the event were porn stars Pharyn Sparxxx, Mya Lee, Taryn Thomas, Priya Rai and Sophia Rossi.

An estimated $12 billion has been made annually by the porn industry. However, in 2007 that figure may have dropped to $1 billion. Part of the reason is that DVD sales have fallen more than 30% since 2005. With online porn, the purchasing of a physical product is just an obstacle to getting immediate satisfaction. And with free online porn, the reason for lost revenue keeps getting clearer.

The reason for the change of location though isn’t clear although recent events may create a clear reason to move to Phoenix. Last month the Los Angeles-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation filed complaints against 16 porn studios to the state’s OSHA division for failing to require porn actors to wear condoms. The looming requirement has forced many in the porn industry the threat of transplanting themselves. And the next best place is Phoenix, Ariz.

Having an online entertainment company means you can be anywhere. Of those who are in Phoenix are amateurallure.com, Aziani.com and Tarynthomas.com.

Taryn Thomas is one of the local pioneers who has settled just outside of Scottsdale in a mostly secluded environment. This allows outdoor shots sans neighboring onlookers. The house/studio belongs to Taryn and her husband, Brett T.

Taryn is a veteran porn star and Brett has been in films but has also produced and directed. They’ve got their own company called Taryn It Up Entertainment. She began the company after a hiatus from the porn industry. And she’s doing well. They’ve already shot with Ron Jeremy, Bobbi Starr, Veronica Jett and Poppy Morgan.

In keeping with punny porns, Taryn It Up hopes to revive the porn DVD industry with the upcoming releases HoDaddy.com (a spoof on the Danica Patrick Godaddy.com commercials) and Jon Minus Nine ( a spoof on Jon and Kate Plus 8). If it works that and possible condom requirements in Los Angeles may make Phoenix the porn capitol of America.
