Listen to me talk about all things porn here: http://purebspodcast.com/2014/10/13/episode-049-split-lips/#comments and http://purebspodcast.com/2014/10/30/episode-052-haunted-fupa-room/
Edit: My dad happened to text me this photo a few minutes ago. He swears he never did gay porn but I don't know...apparently everyone in my family is weird and into naked people. Photo is SFW I promise.
Yes! I am not a size person. I have dated a whole range of weirdos, from hot guys to ugly guys with and I've seen all kinds of dongs. If you make me laugh, I will date you.
Do you think there is a big market for videos of women farting whip cream out of their ass? I have only seen like two or three videos like this, but I think there is a lot of money to be made and this might become a new trend, or do you think I am over estimating the potential? Also it could be cool whip or buttercream icing. Thank you for your time and your response.
I believe that in order for the fart to really move the cream it would have to be a very aerated dairy product. I would say Redi-Whip would work best. A buttercream isn't going to have the splatter effect that you're looking for. But yeah, there's a market for this. It's called CakeFarts and it's delightful. Hope that answered your question!
That was a more insightful and informed reply than I could have possibly imagined. I find your observations about the texture of the buttercream vs Redi-Whip with regard to being propelled from the cornhole to be some of the best work done in this field of study so far. Once again I thank you for your time and your expertise.
I really appreciate it, I've put some thought into that question before, I'm glad I was finally able to talk about it somewhere.
This is the best thread in any AMA ever.
Ha and I really want whipped cream right now.
Do you think artificially increasing the volume of farts.. I.E. Air up the asshole via a tube.. would be frowned upon, or a requirement?
Do you think they would hire.. uh.. butthole fluffers?ohgodwhy
I think this could be a groundbreaking idea in the porn industry
In your experience has anyone ever tapped out? Like flat out said I'm not doing this in the middle of a scene?
Oh yeah. Have you ever seen the Efuckt where the porn girl freaks out? If not, here it is. Very very very NSFW
This video made me super sad :(
It makes everyone super sad. Especially those girls' parents.
Can you put the worst noise you've ever heard in the industry into text?
Guy: What the fuck did you just fart on my dick?
Girl: I had chipotle for lunch, I'm sorry!
This is a true story.
Why do porn sites not use .cum domain names instead of .com?
Wow, is that a thing we can do?
Wow, is that a thing we can do?
In my last company, the men didn't last the long, the editing was just really good. I've never even slept with someone who's lasted longer than 5 minutes. And btw, girls don't need to actually get fucked for 30 minutes, no matter what the porn sites tell you.
Erections, jizz, orgasms...it's all fake in the hardcore world.
A lot of times they take Viagra and a lot of times it's a stunt cock!
Is it different with a place like MetArt?
Yeah MetArt is not a BANG BANG BANG type of film, the on set vibe is super sensual and the guys have a much easier time performing. Plus we film with porn stars who are often real life couples!
Every time I see a Met Art picture of a beautiful woman with the watermark on it, I read it in my head as "Me Tart". Now I can't think of it any other way.
No and now you've fucked me up for life as well.
thats actually really sweet. That makes me happy, metart is one of my favorite places to get porn because it feels..more ethical almost and im glad thats not just an illusion.
Thank you! Yea, we're the porn company with a heart of gold!
Any awkward or super embarrassing moments you were involved in on set?
The most awkward thing that's ever happened to me is when I slipped on a fresh cum spot in the shower set and fell on the floor and chipped a tooth. I was crying for so many reasons after that happened.
OUCH! :C I hope it was fixed, but thanks for the reply!
Twas a minor chip, haven't had it fixed. I think it adds character!
Way to take a negative outcome and make it positive, thumbs up to you _^
Life's too short to cry over spilled cum.
What is the coefficient of kinetic friction on the interior surface of your favorite girl?
Ff = μ N
Ff = medium size penis
μ =Mia Sollis
N = Sleep number bed on a medium firm setting
Holy shit, 10 points for knowing the equation for frictional force.
Did i get it right?!
Yep! Ff (Force friction) = μ (coefficient of friction) times Fn (the "normal force").
FUCK YEAH!!!!! take that Science Man Smoleny! (that's my 12th grade physics teacher...he once called me the worst student he'd ever had.)
What is the most disgusting thing that you have seen to date?
That does look nasty! :o
Your shoes would actually stick to the floor when you tried to walk...
What's the biggest myth about porn that people ask you about, that you'd like to debunk?
The biggest myth: all male pornstars can ejaculate loads on command. Not true. At my last job a lot of the cum shots were faked with this
Wow! TIL fake jizz costs $1.29/fluid ounce.
I like that it's described as having a musky smell. I think cum smells like pool water, but maybe that's just my opinion?
I'm not the only person that thinks it smells like chlorine?! High five!
It smells EXACTLY like chlorine!!
I feel like if you're going to use fake jizz...why not make it smell nice, heck, why not make it TASTE nice? I think I need to contact some manufacturers...
BACON FLAVORED FAKE JIZZ...why is this not a thing I've been swallowing for years now?
Can you describe in more detail how they use this?
So they hook up a pump out of shot and then they fill the pump with the fake jizz and they squirt it using tricky camera angles so it looks like it's coming out of the dick.
What did you have for breakfast today?
I'm glad you asked that because today I fucking did it up. I had homemade multigrain bread, topped with this really stinky blue cheese, covered in thinly sliced apples, drizzled with truffle honey. Was fucking awesome. What about you?
Cheerios. Honey-Nut style, of course.
Mmm you ever get down wit dat apple cinnamon doe?
No apple cinnamon. If we're out of Cheerios, I would typically have toast.
What did you have for lunch today? I had a turkey sandwich that my 10 yr old daughter packed for me.
That's so cute! I had a 10 yr old for lunch.
Edit: that sounded really perverted, I was going for a cannibal angle but missed the mark. For lunch I had a really depressing Wassa cracker with salmon, arugula, lemon, capers, and cracked pepper.
That sounds more like an after lunch snack.
Listen Jonathan, I will eat blue cheese whenever I damn well please. My after lunch snack was a pita pizza.
That....sounds so damn good. I know what I'm having for breakfast this weekend.
Yeah make sure to get the truffle honey. It's like $14 for the smallest jar but worth it
That sounds amazing.
It was so fucking good, I threw away the wrapping on the cheese so I don't know what kind it was. But just get something soft and funky and you'll be good to go.
I love a pungent cheese.
I can just do an AMA on my love of cheese. You know, if you want...
How does your work affect your romantic life?
Have you slept with any adult performers? What was it like?
It improves my life! I used to work exclusively in gay porn so I've learned a lot of interesting blow job techniques (although, I gotta say, I was good at that before I started porn...) And no, I have not slept with any adult performers. They are sooooo not my type.
So what is your type?
Funny, bearded, smart, wears glasses, loves to read, likes my cooking, will buy me all the pugs i want.
Have you worked on film before?
on film or on a film? No to on film (I don't think I'm what they're looking for) but I'm going to direct my first movie in March!
I'd watch ya do stuff to other people's stuff. Just sayin.
That's so kind! But would you buy me stuff of an amazon wish list? because then i'd consider it...
Well then they're wrong.
How did you get the job?
my really awesome best friend worked there and she got me the gig at BangBros. Then, believe it or not, I got my new job working for MetArt.com from Reddit!
How did reddit help?
So until yesterday I had a different account and I posted a bunch of stuff that made it to the front page. Someone from MetArt noticed it, PM'd me, I thought they were trying to cyber me, turns out they weren't, and the rest is history.
That's fucking awesome. I guess reddit is good for something after all.
I know, now I pretty much get paid to reddit for a living!
that made me laugh. so does your username
How much overlap in crew is there between porn and hollywood movies? Could the budgets reach a point where it would be more economical to make general audience movies with porn actors?
Yeah, like any Hollywood film we have a large crew, craft services, and we sometimes go over budget. I'm really hoping that we start to see a trend towards Hollywood movies venturing into the "Blue Is the Warmest Color" and "Brown Bunny" territory. More hardcore sex in mainstream films!
More hardcore sex in mainstream films!
"And then he smells crime again, he's out busting heads. Then he's back to the lab for some more full penetration. Smells crime. Back to the lab, full penetration. Crime. Penetration. Crime. Full penetration. Crime. Penetration. And this goes on and on and back and forth for 90 or so minutes until the movie just sort of...ends."
- The Fifth Sense: The Smell Of Penetration, produced by Dennis Reynolds
I'd rather watch a sexual adaptation of The Nightman Cometh.
You gotta pay the Troll Toll
That will now be in my head for the next 6 hours...
Still staring Danny Devito?
Um YEAH, who wouldn't want to see that guy's D?
I bet it looks just like him
Truer words have never been spoken.
I work as a prop guy on sets... and the idea of being a prop guy in these is horrifying. Can you imagine the cleanup work?
I can't I won't and I never will
How the heck do you guys make money with all that staff and equipment?
Subscriptions, video sales, and other non-porn related ventures!
Hey Sloane! It's funny you landed on Met-Art, it's nothing like BB. Anyways, do you have any tips for someone willing to work in this industry (as a photographer)?
I also think you're very pretty. :>
Aw, you're very sweet! I was really sick of the hard core world, and I LOVE MetArt stuff so I was super excited when they offered me a gig (I also get to work from home, so basically, I'm living the dream!) Yes, we are actually looking for photographers right now! You can email me here: [email protected] and we can talk about your photography!
I may email you some of my work as well(legit stuff, not dick pics)
Yes please do! We are ALWAYS looking for interesting new photographers!
Does the porn industry look for huge cocks? Every porn video I seen the dudes dick is massive. Either that or just really good angle shots. Idk I've always wondered
No way! The porn industry is always looking for dicks of all shapes and sizes. And I'm just speaking for myself but I ain't no size queen, I like a nice normal sized penis. You know, like 10 inches or so.
No, all dicks are that big except for yours.
I've seen /u/knuckle_split's dick and i can tell you right now that it is massive
Do your parents know what you do and what do they think? Have you found that people judge you because of who you work for?
They do know what I do. I went to private school my entire life and my dad always likes to remind me, "I paid half a million dollars for you and your sister to go to school and you end up working in porn, could have sent you to public school for that and bought a summer house in Maine."
And yes, some people judge me but to them I say, suck my clit.
Is the porno usually shot straight through, or are there a lot of breaks in between filming?
Lots of breaks. Cig breaks. Bathroom breaks. Enema breaks.
Any pornstar you did not get along with at all?
At my old job, yes, there was one porn star who was just starting out and she was just awful. She did cam shows and she needed to set up an Amazon wish list for guys to buy her stuff. I had to create an email address for her (she didn't have one, she just used AIM), teach her how to use Amazon.com (she had never heard of it), and then had to explain why they didn't sell Louis Vuitton bags through Amazon. She was just dumb and rude to me. Really disliked her.
I'd really like to know who that was.
Sucks that you probably can't say :'(
She's not even acting anymore because she found a sugar daddy but it was not even a big name star. I think her name was Ana Monroe or something
So can we see your boobs? Why did they not clean the floor?
Ok i felt bad, these are really my boobs and the only bikini picture I've ever taken
Sure! Here they are
Everyone on this thread got really excited and then died a little inside.
I like your style.
Yah but look above, I added the real ones!
Why the hell was D. Sanchez employed for so long? Dude legitimately ruined Bang Bus for YEARS.
Yeah people either loved him or hated him. I for one don't like a d-bag making comments while I'm trying to jill but hey, to each their own.
I wish there were more porn stars who looked like you and less who look like, you know, porn stars. Anyway, a question.... Ummm, cheddar or brie?
Aw that's really sweet of you to say! Cheddar for my scrambled eggs and brie for my sandwiches or crackers. For crackers, the brie must be baked en croute with brown sugar and almonds.
What's the absolute weirdest thing you've ever seen? And what is something that you'll never forget?
Weirdest thing I've ever seen in porn or just life in general?
Let's go with porn.
In porn: I've seen a girl put a cockroach in her vagina. In real life: I saw a motorcycle accident where a guy was beheaded. Like, I WATCHED it happen. Will never forget that.
Wow. Was he okay?
Yeah he was fine, walked away with a slight headache.
Hi, thanks for doing this AMA! Two questions:
Some people think "amateur"-looking, low budget porn made without editing and with a sub-par camera is more immersive than porn that is clearly an adult film. How have you seen that relationship between "professional" and "amateur" products in your industry? Especially when you factor in the costs of producing an "amateur"-looking film vs. a professional one, the "amateur" look has to be more appealing, right?
What percentage of people in the porn industry have any kind of formal education in film techniques? Is there anyone you know who has done any sort of film education program specifically based around porn itself?
1) I think the future of porn will have an amateur/high quality vibe to it. People are sick of the Vivid style parody porn crap but they also don't want shaky camera phone P.O.V. The film I'll be directing in March will have a voyueristic feel to it. I want people to feel like they're hiding in the room watching people fuck. So yeah, it's a more immersive experience and I think people respond to it better.
2) I don't know the exact figure but most of the film people in the adult world that I know come from a technical training background (i.e. they went to school for it.) And I don't know of any programs that teach JUST porn but that's a great idea! writes note to boss...
You asked about ideas before. There it is. Have your group go away for a weekend away. Have the set be like an old Victorian mansion that has the secret passages and hidden rooms and they find them and see the other members having their fun. You can have the classic peep holes in the eyes of a painting. Have a couple go on a hike in the woods and on their return the spy others on the balcony of their room. That's a start I guess.
Ohhh thats like a sexy Haunted Mansion ride. I LIKE IT
in bangbros bangbus, picking the guy from road to fuck Porn star is real?
Sadly no, you have to go through a lot of rigamarole to be on a film. We have to prove your age, you have to sign releases, etc.
Hi! My comment is not really a question, mostly its an observation. I've noticed that most '' mainstream'' porn shots I've seen are as follows:
Mini-scenario bullshit that some enjoy->Undressing->Cockgargling/choking->Female performer being penetrated->Some more cockchoking->Male performer finishes on female performer.
I know the format has been proven to be effective. I enjoy it from time to time, but it mostly is because I find the girl is either a good actress or she really does enjoy herself.
I found out that I get off the most on people getting off, call it sympathetic orgasm or whatever you want but, it seems I like it more when the guy tries to please the girl, I know some love lesbian scenes more due to that fact, but I find it odd. Mainly because I try to envision how the ''actress'' feels, and when I see fake long nails I just picture those inside a vagina and it must hurt.
Long story short: I do like when a girl gets off, I don't like lesbo-for-pay scenes.
My question is: Is there any niche for a type of video where the girl has to get off?
This is a tl:dr, btw. I would have typed if it was not for the fact that I hate to read a wall of text and I assume other people do too.
Honestly what you're describing is the company I work for now, and that's not even a shameless plug. It's very important to me that our girls have nice, natural, trimmed nails, normal clothing, just, you know, look like girls next door. I think what you're looking for is stuff from VivThomas.com. They have the best girls making love to girls. And SexArt.com is awesome if you want to watch two people really enjoying each other. Some of our scenes are actually filmed with porn stars who are couples in real life!
What's your role when you're behind the scenes?
Right now I do all kinds of stuff, mainly making silly videos and the other times I guest star on podcasts. But right now I'm writing my very first movie (so please send in your ideas because we want to start making movies crowd sourced from you guys)
A girl buys a house and this plumber, mailman and electrician come at the same time
What about the pool boy? Does he just watch?
No, he's actually doing his job, because HE'S not a damn Commy.
My pool boy is Cuban, so....I think he might just be one....
Yeah! Definitely! The problem is American girls often want a lot of money to shoot movies, so it might cost you, but hey, you can always give it a shot, right?
Having been in the porn industry, what is your personal preference on size of a partner that you might be serious with? Are you willing to date someone who is on the smaller side, or do you find it too hard to be satisfied?
Likewise, do you prefer rough, hard sex or something more slow and sensual?
I enjoy a medium size penis, 6 inches or so. I don't like a big penis. My gyno once told me I have the vagina of a 12 year old so I think I'm on the smaller size (not really sure what he meant by that and when you're spread eagle with your legs in stirrups you don't ask questions.) I prefer rough, weird, dominant sex with the man taking control with a few slow and sensual moments thrown in. But you gotta finish hard and rough if I'm going to get off.
How pervasive is amphetamine usage in the porn industry?
Well I personally take Adderall everyday but I have severe ADHD! As for illegal meth, I don't really know the exact numbers but I think a lot of hardcore actresses use it :(
I'm just going to show up and make casual conversation with you during your AMAs. Is that alright with you?
Yeah duh, what do you want to talk about?
I didn't really have a specific topic in mind, to be honest. Every time that you show up, though, I'm reminded of the hypothetical conversation that I wrote about the gloryhole set.
What do we have in common that we could discuss?
That was a beautiful comment. Hmm, what are your thoughts on sea monkeys?
I have mixed feelings. My girlfriend bought a little sea monkey farm about a year ago, and she was really excited about it. This made me nervous, because I couldn't shake the feeling that her office - where she intended to keep them - would turn out to be a less-than-appropriate environment. I encouraged her to refrain from hatching them, mostly because I wanted to spare her the dismay of their eventual loss.
So, uh... yeah. What kind of books do you like?
Well how'd it turn out? Are they still with us today? As for books, oh man, I'm a total book nerd. My concentration in college was 18th century literature. I couldn't get enough. I love all kinds of books. Currently re-reading a reference book called "Bawdy Language" highly recommend it. Also, I just finished "The Stand" by Stephen King. Loved that too! How about you? Favorite books?
What type of porn do you prefer?
I go between different things. I spend a lot of time on /r/forcedorgasm because I love BDSM and then I like softer stuff, like VivThomas.com lesbian movies where the girls actually like fucking each other.
A friend I went to high school with had worked for bang bros and reality kings. And seems to be making good money. I was wondering how to get on behind the scenes. What is an entry level position in the industry?
Entry level? Rear. JK, I would say photo editing, or PA is entry level for the porn world.
How do they fake cum shots with lotion in a video? Would be simple for pictures no idea how they do it in video form.
They use tricky camera angles and stand off to the side and make it look like the cum is squirting out buy using a tube sometimes taped to the guys penis. Does that make sense? It's kinda hard to explain!
Hey Sloane. Is there any opportunities in the porn industry for a physics major?
Hmmm, would you ever do a film? Your porn name could be Stephen Cocking
Worse look: birkenstocks or man sandals with too many straps?
It really depends on how pasty the leg is wearing the sandals and level of hair. Pale + no hair= german tourist. Tan + hair= Outside magazine subscriber.
What's up Sloane? Thanks for making my day at my boring job a little more exciting! Got a couple questions for you:
1) What was the one moment when you realized that you wanted to work in the porn industry?
2) What's your favorite part about working in the porn industry?
Yay! Happy to brighten your day! So, 1) I knew I wanted to work in the porn industry since the first time I downloaded a porn video from Kazaa. I loved porn from the age of oh, I dunno, 11? 2) I love all the weirdos I meet and I also get to work from home, in my underwear, staring at boobs and butts and peepees all day. Can't really beat that.
Definitely beats a desk job haha. Appreciate the response and good luck on the new gig!
Thanks very much! I mean I still work at a desk, it's just a coffee table in front of a T.V. that plays non stop Bravo or Dante's Peak or ConAir 7 days a week
Have you ever mainlined heroin?
Never. Ingested it once in an ecstasy pill though.
where are you located? Send me your resume to [email protected] and I'll pass it around!
How do I get over my undying love for you?
Damn, that's a hard one, I wish I could help you. I mean, you can follow my instagram. I post really weird pictures and then you'll realize I'm a fucking weirdo with too many pets and maybe that will change your mind?
Hey Sloane, I have a serious question here: Blunt or Bong?
Depends on what I'm doing/ where I'm going but I'm gonna say bong.
Why are you the best OP ever?
We missed you!
I missed you too! I don't know, I'm not that good, I just like talking about boobs and porn and weed and pizza and all things that are beautiful in this world.
Which mainstream pornstars did you find pleasant working with?
Remy LaCroix is lovely as is Amarna Miller. Oh, also Isabella De Santos and Abella Anderson
Amarna Miller is one of my favorite new models. Really love her.
Isn't she fantastic? She's smart and sweet and so damn sexy. I love her
I've always had a thing for redheads. I first saw her in some Lesbea film and she really made a lasting impression on me.
Ohhh I've got some good redheads for ya!
How did you first get into the industry?
My best friend recruited me to do SEO marketing a couple years ago and I've been in love with the industry ever since then!
Had no clue what BangBros or MetArt was before, but now I do yay curiosity! Thanks for the AMA!
As for a question: do you have experience working on sets for lesbian porn [not the kind shot 'for' men where they have ridiculously-unrealistically long fingers nails and tons of makeup]... and how would you describe the atmosphere? is it the same, different than straight films you shoot?
annnnd what's your favorite holiday?
okay, thanks again for this! :]
I have yet to be on set for a lesbian film, but I'll be on set in March in Barcelona and I'll let you know how it goes!
As for my favorite holiday, Halloween! This was my costume this year: http://i.imgur.com/HRFwvWN.jpg
If you were single would you ever date a guy with a small penis? What if he had a great personality? I'm asking for a friend....
