Momentum: Interview with Brian Gross “The Porn Publicist”.

At the Momentum Conference, I had a difficult time picking which sessions to sit in on. Do I go and sit in on Audiacia Ray or Charlie Glickman? Do I sit in with DangerousLilly or Maggie Mayhem? Hear a trailblazer speak on topics I’m familiar with to see what they’re saying or take sessions that will help me grow? What about workshops FOR workshops? A little Inception-y, I know. One of the sessions I sat in on was called “Sex and the Media: Who Wins?” I’m looking to break into other media and become a public face, I understand hardships the adult industry has with media… so I gave this one a shot.

The speaker’s name is Brian Gross and he is often pigeon-holed as The Porn Publicist. He has worked with Def American Recordings and Warner Brothers Records before he took “the plunge into adult” with Vivid’s Steven Hersh (politely name dropping clients such as Lars Ulrich and Gene Simmons to James Deen, Jenna Haze and Sasha Grey).

He said many things concerning the love/hate relationship between the adult industry and media (radio, tv, internet and print) while weaving on and off topic shared his facts and views through client relationships on how the media loves to use sexuality to sell publications/bring ratings – but at what cost? Of course this sparked a few questions to which I hoped Brian would have the time for an interview – and he did!

After a few txts on where and when, we decided on a late night chat over a drink (he Jameson, I Jack- of course) and this is how it went down. Forgive me for getting link happy, we zipped past some names because we know the industry’s characters so I linked for those of you who don’t know who we’re talking about.

Jane Blow: We know media won’t paint an accurate picture for the adult film industry – but for the select sex educators it welcomes (Laura Berman on Oprah for example)- Who have you found to be the most “oh no way, not at all” on a higher level but on a lower level sneak you in the back? As we know that larger companies own smaller ones we may not be familiar with.

Brian Gross: I don’t have much of this specific experience and I’ll tell you why. Producers don’t have that much time to be that all ‘over the place’ for lack of a better term. An example- the producer from Entertainment Tonight will say “I want to do a story on this actor or this actress, can we make it happen?” It’s a yes or no. Same with ABC Nightline. When specific television programs with an interest in sexuality say “We want to do this…” it opens up the negotiation. There are certain topics certainly that are a little more taboo which are harder to get an outlet to promote unless they’re broken through the news. Then they become a news story. It’s really difficult because there is a differentiation between what is a breaking news story and what we are trying to plan as a topic of conversation, as an editorial.

Every major television outlet, whether is cable news or ABC, NBC etc they’ve all covered some kind of sexuality in some way. So, if it fits, and it works, and its news worthy, then they’ll do something.

 

JB: Speaking of Niteline since it’s one of the recent things I know about because of the James Deen interview- Did Nightline contact you or your people because of this Tumblr phenomenon or how exactly did that happen?

Spotlight: James Deen

Welcome to the After Dark Spotlight, all links are NSFW

James Deen is a guy you’re going to love to hate, or hate to love –

either way he is hot and bangs chicks for a living.

Poor James kept having his twitpic accounts shut down on him because he was trying to share with the world his daily routine.  He would wake up, go to work, bang some chicks and eat burritos. This thoughtful, sexy man would take pics of the lady(s) he was fucking that day for our viewing pleasure and twitter just did NOT appreciate it.

Booooooooooooo

After going through, I think 3 different programs he decided to blog about his life instead!  Just recently he added a concrete formula to his writing; he rates restaurants (and I can use that term loosely because he is also an editor, so his doesn’t doesn’t rock ALL the time) with different types of boobs and then takes pics of the girl he fucked that day… they usually always obey his “no panties rule”.  Lucky him, eh?

As Barbie is a fangirl of Jack Lawrence, I am a fangirl of James <3

He doesn’t look like a typical male porn star (neither the overly buff meat-head or the skeezy gross guy), which I love – he does his own thing.  Women seem to really enjoy doing scenes with him, which I also love.  He’ll whisper to the girls and do things just for them, I’ve also notice he’ll go down more often too (if only for just a minute, he will still try and put it in there!)

He’ll do MILFs, foreigners, punky girls, spoofs, horror flixxx, straight girls, amateurs, BDSM girls… so if you like a certain type of scene you can find him in it.  In fact, he won best porn star of the year I think the last 3 years in a row – so that has to prove something!

His cock is a great size, he has a funny personality and he is always DTF… what more could you ask for?

FLASH: Big Lebowski Parody Porn XXX

Ready to take bets on who is going to redo the Pulp Fiction porno?

Forget The Golden Globes; The AVN Awards is what I care about!

Its that time of year again!! THE PORN AWARDS!!

@AVNawards is on twitter watching people who RT their posts and all the hashtags coming in for #AVNawards, they want to give a special twitter-er (tweep?) a pass to the red carpet/events to be on their Twitter team.  I believe it is every guy’s wet dream to be there BUT if *I* went it would be covered properly, and, well, I totally *deserve* to go for all my hard work at @Nitecapvideo and my loyalty to you readers @DAPSwebsite!

After all, I did cover @Exxxotica NY for you, and shared my evenings with @NinaLand, PLUS I took you out to the big ECN/IVD 25th Anniversary Dinner.  Hell, I even did a special FMK for it! The AVNs would complete the year!
