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?

Is Riley Steele the New Sasha Grey?

Are you kidding me GQ? One is a blonde, the other is Brunette!

Sasha is her own entity, the only things they have in common are that they are porn stars, they’re hot as hell, and that they went mainstream. PLUS, there have been SO MANY OTHER porn stars have gone mainstream besides Jenna Jameson and Ron Jeremy… way to go for SEO.  You could have referenced such great “guy” movies like Boondock Saints or Boogie Nights or even Blade!!

If you wanted to be smart, before you said “so few have crossed over”, and too really kick the porn fans in the lube, you should have said Traci Lords and Scott Schwartz. But no, you said Sasha because she is the hot ‘new’ starlet and is going to be on Entourage, I bet your readers <3 that show!

You could have really dug deep and looked up other porn stars who were in mainstream films… but alas, you kept it fresh.

For Riley and Digital Playground’s sake, I really hope Piranah 3d turns out to be a good film. :)

FLASH: NOT JENNA JAMESON!!!

Sickeningly adorable couple and parents of two lovely twins Jenna Jameson and Tito Ortiz are on the rocks now, and thats to say the least.

Jenna Jameson is the loveable adult actress who you might know from oh I don’t know JUST ABOUT A GAJILLION MOVIES, as well as being in Zombie Strippers! Back to the point at hand, long term boyfriend and father of Jenna’s twins Tito Ortiz  (the UFC fighter), was arrested early this morning  for domestic abuse charges against Ms. Jameson.  Police are quoted as saying that when they showed up Jenna has “visible injuries”.

This morning while Tito sat twiddling his thumbs in a jail cell, Jenna (sporting an arm brace) was busy filing a restraining order and moving his ass out of the house they share.  She reported that the twins are fine and doing well, she also hopes to work things out with Tito.

When questioned Jenna told the paparazzi that she is going through with pressing charges against Tito.  Which is all around bad news for Tito due to the fact that Dana White (the big name behind UFC) was quoted as saying “Other than going on a killing spree, being accused of domestic violence is the worst thing you can have going for you.”  Tito can actually be kicked out of the UFC organization should these reports be proven true (and we don’t doubt they will).  UFC is waiting for the dust to settle before they make a decision but as it stands it looks as though Tito is losing his home, his girl, his job and some custody of the kids.

In any case we’re pulling for you Jenna! You’re a big favorite to us and you’ll always be an idol!

<3 Barbie
