  3. Adult film star Nikki Benz sues porn company Brazzers, director and performer alleging sexual battery By Kathleen Joyce | Fox News April 10, 2018 Porn star Nikki Benz has sued a porn company, director and actor for sexual battery. (Facebook) Adult film star Nikki Benz filed a lawsuit Monday against pornography production company Brazzers, director Tony T. and porn star Ramon Nomar, alleging she was “struck on the face, head and breasts hard enough to cause her [to] bleed” while shooting an adult film in 2016. Benz, 36, filed the lawsuit in the Los Angeles Superior Court Monday alleging “battery, assault, sexual battery, gender violence and other counts,” The Wrap reported. Tony T. was sued by porn star Nikki Benz for sexual battery. (Defiance Films) The actress stated that the only things she was aware of before filming in December 2016 was that “the shoot would be hardcore and what she would be wearing.” Benz alleged the film’s director, Tony T. “slapped her face and breasts’, saying ‘Open your eyes b----‘ and ‘Open your f---ing eyes,” the suit stated. “He would film with one hand and choke Benz with the other hand. Nomar stomped on Benz’s head. Between Tony T. and Nomar, Benz was hit, slapped choked and thrown on the ground and against the wall,” the lawsuit read. The suit also alleged Benz was beaten to the point of bleeding. Ramon Nomar was also named in the suit filed by Nikki Benz. The porn star claimed she never gave Tony T. permission to touch her while filming and told him not to during the shoot. Benz claimed when she was asked during the exit interview if she would work with Tony T. again she said the director forced her to say “yes” or she would not be paid. Benz, an AVN [Adult Video News] Hall of Fame inductee, said she suffered “pain, suffering, emotional distress, as well as past and future medical expenses and lost wages” following the shoot. Benz spoke out the same month of the shoot, TMZ reported. Following the allegations, Brazzers cut ties with the director. Tony T. has also filed a lawsuit against Benz, Brazzers and its parent company MindGeek for defamation.

  4. Hope you're well, Tony. I have lots of work and stress. Cheers, Artie


    I suggested to Andreas that NA promote a stand-alone VR Headset to watch VR content. You can get the model below from Beneve on Amazon for $288. Apply for an Amazon store card and get a $30 discount. I found the picture quality significantly better than when I tried Oculus for PC with NA VR content at the Naughty America Booth at CES Las Vegas in January of this year. i.e. There is hardly any "screen door" effect. Video quality was also way better than using my Samsung Phone with the Oculus VR App and headset. (Note this is a stand-alone VR Headset and no smartphone nor PC is required to watch VR content.) $258 is way cheaper than buying a VR- ready, high performance gaming PC with video card and VR headset, especially when you are not into gaming. My only complaint with the Beneve unit was that the head strap was a bit small. The Beneve model also allows for a micro/TF card. I bought a 64 GB Sandisk card, but 128 GB is also available from Sandisk. The micro/TF card may need to be reformatted with your PC to NTFS in order for it to be compatible with the Beneve headset. https://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2545/~/differences-between-fat-and-ntfs VR Headset Virtual Reality 2560p,3D VR Glasses Google Carboard On Android 5.1 System Inch 360 Degree Panorama Theater https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078HQZ8CC?ie=UTF8&tag=mro0d4-20&camp=1789&linkCode=xm2&creativeASIN=B078HQZ8CC

      Nope.They owe me $370 in recent commissions and $112 on an old commission. I test marketed promoting NA VR. Part of my test marketing was to see if I'd get paid.

  7. ‘We lost five women’: Porn industry reckons with assault allegations and a string of deaths By Dennis Romero February 16th, The Washington Post Tasha Reign is chairwoman of the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee, which is trying to create more guidelines for what’s acceptable in an industry rocked by sexual assault scandals and the recent deaths of five performers. (Amanda Lopez/For The Washington Post) At the “Oscars of porn” last month, performers showed up looking so nude they could have been arrested. The display is a tolerated tradition that goes back decades. But this year a few things were different at the AVN Awards, held at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas. Ron Jeremy, one of the biggest names in the industry to be accused of sexual assault, was banned from the proceedings. So the usual assortment of post-party photos featuring his hands placed as human lingerie — he has called himself “a groper” — was absent. Although the trade show’s zero-tolerance policy on harassment landed last year — long before recent sexual harassment scandals rocked Hollywood — this year it required participants to sign the policy, a clear response to the “Me Too” movement. Moves like this have some in the industry peacocking, especially as crosstown rival Hollywood has been hammered over its lack of gender equality. “If you look at the recent AVN nominations for director of the year, nearly half of the names were women,” says Gamma Films chief Bree Mills. “You can’t say that about the Oscars.” “There’s certainly more going on here that’s forward progress than in Hollywood,” adds AVN spokesman Brian S. Gross. Boosters say that even though the industry may seem retrograde to outsiders, it’s actually quite forward-thinking, the result of its libertarian streak, and as evidenced by its history of prominent women as directors and producers (such as Jenna Jameson and Tera Patrick). But adult video is also dealing with its own heartache in the wake of its assault allegations and the mysterious deaths of five porn actresses in the last four months — both of which have inspired some insiders to try to fight for change. August Ames, left, and her husband, adult film producer Kevin Moore, attend the 2016 Adult Video News Awards in Las Vegas. Ames hanged herself in December, becoming one of five porn actresses to die in recent months. (Ethan Miller/Getty Images) Adult film actress Shyla Stylez, who also died recently, arrives at the Adult Video News Awards in 2011. (Ethan Miller/Getty Images) Even before the allegations against Harvey Weinstein in October and Hollywood’s Time’s Up initiative to combat sexual misconduct, adult video had seen scandals, including star Nikki Benz’s claims of on-set sexual assault last year against producer-director Tony T. Benz said via Twitter that the director stomped her head and choked her after she yelled “cut.” In 2015, multiple women alleged porn actor James Deen assaulted them. Both men have disputed the allegations — Tony T. even sued, and the case is being appealed. He said Los Angeles police declined to pursue the case, but the LAPD hasn’t confirmed one way or another. Meanwhile, Deen continued to release titles through his production company last year. Jeremy, accused of assault by multiple women, was cast out of AVN, but he was spotted at the XBIZ conference in Los Angeles last month before, organizers say, he was removed. Since November, porn has faced another scandal: a wave of tragedy that claimed the lives of performers August Ames, Olivia Lua, Olivia Nova, Turi Luv and Shyla Stylez. Ames hanged herself after she was cyberbullied for implying she didn’t want to work with a male performer who appeared in gay porn. Luv, a.k.a. Yuri Beltran, died of a suspected overdose not long after she tweeted that she needed a hug. Causes of death of the others — Styles died in her sleep — were not immediately known, as the coroners’ conclusions have been delayed. Industry watchers have said the deaths nearly all point to the issue of mental health in porn, or lack thereof. Each year, a performer or two dies — Amber Rayne died in 2016 at the age of 31 of a possible overdose, according to L.A. County coroner’s officials — but the cluster of five set off alarms and generated global headlines. At the awards show last month, Ames’s husband, Kevin Moore — an adult filmmaker who is now working on an industry mental health initiative — told the crowd, “There can never be another AVN Awards show that has a memorial full of young women ever again.” Adult film director-producer Kevin Moore, second from left, is comforted after speaking about his late wife, adult film actress August Ames, during the Adult Video News Awards at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Jan. 27. Ames reportedly hanged herself in December. (Ethan Miller/Getty Images) Critics have long argued that adult video is a magnet for creepy fans, coerced young women and STDs, claims the industry denies. The conservative Washington, D.C.-based National Center on Sexual Exploitation argues that porn viewing has fueled harassment and sexual violence in other walks of life. Some evidence supports the claim, but there is also research that correlates the freedom to view adult content with fewer incidents of rape — the idea is that porn can facilitate as a safe sexual release. A common thread running through the deaths in adult video and our current reckoning with sexual harassment is constant fan harassment of female stars online, observers say. Nate “Igor” Smith, a journalist who has photographed AVN for 10 years and who has dated performers, says, “Most of the negative influence comes from outside the industry — fans, family members, strangers calling you a whore.” “Any female performer’s DMs [direct messages] on Twitter is brutal,” he says. “People say horrible things to these women.” Mills, the filmmaker, adds that after the recent deaths, “there is a growing movement among performers to speak up and be vocal about their feelings, their experiences and their boundaries. Performers give everything of themselves, physically and mentally, when they put themselves out there so intimately for the public.” “We lost five women,” says adult star Tasha Reign. “If you are going to join the adult industry, it’s a hard transition. Society, your family and your friends will treat you differently. That’s the hardest thing about becoming an adult performer.” Many of the women getting into porn for the first time are 18 and 19 years old, she notes. “Nobody is prepared for cyberbullies and family and friends disowning you.” Even in this “Me Too” environment, performers are publicly attacked for claiming that they were violated sexually on set, observers say. “If a female performer says something about an on-set experience there will be 100 responses, and many are saying, ‘This is what you do for a living,’” said attorney Karen Tynan, who has represented performers and directors in sexual harassment claims. The intimacy involved in porn’s workplace means that the line that can’t be crossed might seem blurry. “Shoots can be fast-paced and stressful. You’re naked and suddenly there’s a director or a photographer attempting to position you and really private parts of your body. Most people on sets aren’t ill-intentioned, but that can be still be invasive or unwanted,” says Mike Stabile, communications director of the Free Speech Coalition, the industry’s trade association. “And there’s certainly an opportunity for someone to take liberties, or to grope. We need to make sure that performers have consent over what’s done to them, especially in what might seem like gray areas.” Adult video’s depictions also blur the boundary between acting and victimization, Tynan says. “There are a lot of these scenarios with secretaries, bosses and babysitters. Adult content has always played with uncomfortable situations and power dynamics.” The Free Speech Coalition has tried to professionalize porn and pull it from the Dark Ages of the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s, when on-set drug use was rampant and STD testing was hit-or-miss. Challenges continue to mount, however, including the industry’s decentralization. While the Free Speech Coalition sets guidelines for the studios that include twice-monthly STD tests for performers, iPhones now allow anyone to produce adult video. Such technology has fueled an exodus away from sets in L.A. and into the cul-de-sacs of Las Vegas, Miami and D.C., leading to an explosion of bedroom-produced “cam girl” videos. Leaders also blame the laws. State workplace authorities have long insisted on condom use, despite weak enforcement. In 2012, Los Angeles County voters passed Measure B, which required not only condoms but costly permits, resulting in a cliff dive for legitimate production. “Critics said Measure B was going to drive production out-of-state and underground, and that has happened,” Tynan says. The spread of porn production means more opportunity for harassment, but it also means that women can take more control of their careers, eschewing agents, directors and producers, observers say. It’s a mixed bag. “There are powerful women on the business side of it, and that’s going to continue to happen,” Tynan says. The industry’s Adult Performer Advocacy Committee, meanwhile, has responded to recent scandals with a move toward welcoming new performers with orientation, guidelines about what’s acceptable and a mentoring program. “I’m working to try to better the safety and mental health of our industry and make sure there’s a way to communicate with performers regarding what’s appropriate,” says Reign, the chairwoman of APAC. And moving forward, “I want to advocate a protocol where training is necessary for anyone, including producers and directors. I like to tell people before they join the business what to expect. With the Time’s Up movement, I felt more empowered to say what I feel.” Industry insiders also point out that drama just isn’t good for business. “No one wants the distraction of a negative story,” Tynan says. “The conversation happening now is good for production companies and for performers,” she adds. “It’s 2018, and this isn’t ‘Boogie Nights’ or a paradigm of porn with a subjugated female who’s not making valid and empowered choices.” Correction: An earlier version of this story said that Ron Jeremy was spotted on the XBIZ awards red carpet. He was actually spotted at the XBIZ conference, and not on the red carpet.

  8. Apple should do more to curb growing smartphone addiction among children, two major investors in the iPhone maker said Monday. In an open letter to the technology giant, New York-based Jana Partners LLC and the California State Teachers’ Retirement System, highlighted increasing concern about the effects of gadgets and social media on youngsters. "There is a developing consensus around the world including Silicon Valley that the potential long-term consequences of new technologies need to be factored in at the outset, and no company can outsource that responsibility,” the letter said. The two investors collectively control $2 billion worth of Apple shares. They urged Apple to offer more choices and tools to help children fight addiction to its devices — moves they said could benefit Apple and its shareholders in the future. Apple was not immediately available to comment on the letter. The letter cited various studies and surveys on how the heavy usage of smartphones and social media negatively affects children’s mental and physical health. Examples include distractions by digital technologies in the classroom, a decreased ability of students to focus on educational tasks, and higher risks of suicide and depression.

  9. The Ames interview no longer appears to be available, but the Independent reported that the Canadian-born Ames revealed that she’d experienced “a lot of sexual molestation” when she was growing up. She said the perpetrator was not her father. But she explained that the trauma of the abuse was compounded because she felt she was not believed when she tried to tell people about it. “It was just awful. It’s still recent where I have to keep myself occupied or else I start thinking about all that (expletive) and then I fall into a depression,” Ames said, according to the Independent. Ames acknowledged that she used medication to deal with bipolar disorder, depression and dissociative identity disorder (formerly called multiple personality disorder). “It was so hard when I wasn’t on any medication when I’d just flip, you know? It was crippling,” she said. She explained that she had tried therapy but didn’t like it because therapists would judge her for working in porn: “I would get in contact with some people and then I would feel badly because they’d be like ‘what’s your profession?’ and I’d be like ‘oh, I’m in the adult industry’ and then I’d feel like they’re like ‘oh, that’s the whole reason that you are the way you are’ and then I’d get turned off.” She mentioned that she had previously abused drugs to escape her anguish, but said she had cut out using substances, including alcohol.

  10. Psychotherapy with Women Who Have Worked in the “Sex Industry” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3508959/ From: Ariz Anklesaria, DO and Julie P. Gentile, MD Author information Abstract Psychotherapy is effective for a myriad of mental health symptoms, with the clinical situation dictating the most applicable method. For episodes of severe stress including acute depression and anxiety, supportive mechanisms (crisis interventions and shoring up existing coping skills and strategies) may be the best fit. During periods of relatively milder symptomatology a psychodynamic approach may be utilized with the same patient (focusing on self-reflection and a more in-depth exploration). This article focuses on the use of psychotherapy with women working in the sex industry, whether indoor (such as strip clubs and cabarets) or outdoor (such as prostitution and escort services). These women frequently experience violence in various forms, and most report multiple traumatic experiences, both during their developmental years and while working in the industry. A composite case is included that illustrates some of the supportive and psychodynamic psychotherapy techniques that can be applied when treating these individuals. Keywords: Supportive psychotherapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, counseling, post-traumatic stress disorder, sex industry, sex worker INTRODUCTION Women involved in the adult sex industry (e.g., exotic dancers and prostitutes) who have experienced trauma often feel shattered and hopeless.1,2 Some escape the lifestyle, yet with limited resources many find themselves “trapped” in the business.1,3 Many have been attacked, exploited, and humiliated, and mind-altering substances often are sought to temporarily mollify the physical and emotional pain.3 The most prevalent mental health symptoms are in the mood and anxiety spectrums, but are often coupled with addiction to substances.1–4 Many of these women who use substances state they are anesthetizing themselves to be able to work in the sex industry.1,2,4 Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is widespread in this subset of the population and usually is attributed to childhood abuse and/or sex industry-related trauma.1–4 A substantial number of these women are homeless single mothers of multiple children, under-educated, and medically uninsured; have a high rate of untreated health-related problems; and often have legal problems.1–4 Table 1 lists important statistics regarding the sex trade industry. TABLE 1 Important statistics about the sex industry1,2,4 The sex industry is a $57 billion worldwide business annually. The United States has more strip clubs than any other country in the world. There are more than 3,800 adult clubs nationwide, which employ over 500,000 people. Currently, more women are employed in the sex industry than in any other point in time. Between 66-90% of women in the sex industry were sexually abused as children. Relative to the general population, women in the sex industry experience higher rates of substance abuse, sexually transmitted diseases, domestic violence, depression, violent assault, rape and posttraumatic stress disorder. The sex industry is estimated to be a $15 billion industry annually in the United States. There has been little research on violence against women in the sex industry until recently. Many in society have assumed that women who work in the industry do so willingly and somehow are shielded from sexual and physical harm or that their participation is fully volitional.1,2 More recently, studies show that both indoor (e.g., strip clubs, cabarets) and outdoor (e.g., prostitution, escort services) sex work heighten the risk of being assaulted.1,2,4 Farley and Kelly1 found that 82 percent of women who were engaged in the outdoor sex industry (prostitution) reported having been physically assaulted and 68 percent reported having been raped.

  11. The Pornography Industry: What Everyone Needs to Know - Book By Shira Tarrant From: https://kupdf.com/download/the-pornography-industry_59f15a28e2b6f5b16e1145e3_pdf What Is the “Damaged Goods” Hypothesis? The damaged goods hypothesis is one explanation that some people use to explain why women become porn performers. In sum, the claim is that women work in pornography because they were sexually abused as children, and they grow up to become drug addicts with a host of psychological problems. “Damaged goods” refers to stereotypes and perceptions as opposed to verified professional assessment that sex workers have low psychological health and self-esteem, with high rates of drug use and shame. These negative stereotypes about women who work in adult entertainment are often used to condemn the pornography industry or to judge the women who work in it. Yet despite preconceived notions and political justifications built on these views, until recently, no study had been conducted to test the “damaged goods” hypothesis. Is This Hypothesis True? In 2012, James Griffith, Sharon Mitchell, Christian Hart, Lea Adams, and Lucy Gu published the findings of a study they conducted to test the accuracy of the damaged goods hypothesis. The team wanted to know whether women in the adult industry would report harmful psychological traits and life experiences more often than women who are not porn performers. The four psychologists and one professional from the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation compared self-reports by 177 porn performers with a sample of women who were not porn performers, matching both groups in terms of age, ethnicity, and marital status. The research team was interested in sexual behaviors and attitudes, self-esteem, quality of life, and drug use among porn actresses. Their findings, published in the Journal of Sex Research, found that compared to women outside the adult industry, female porn actors were more likely to identify as bisexual, experienced their first sexual encounter at a relatively early age, and had more sexual partners. None of the factors, however, are automatically problems. On the face of it, if the women who have had these life experiences don’t find them troubling, there is no reason to presume that they are. Whether one interprets bisexuality, early sexual encounters, or number of sexual partners as a problem may reflect conservative moral panic or religious views more so than proving that women in porn are “damaged.” Female performers were between three and nine times more likely than the matched group to have used ten different types of drugs (marijuana, hallucinogens, ecstasy, cocaine, heroin, other opiates, methamphetamine, tranquilizers, barbiturates, and other sedatives). It is important to note that these findings do not measure drug addiction but the rate at which participants ever tried or experimented with a drug. The only significant difference in terms of how often drugs were used in the six months prior to the survey revealed that marijuana was the only drug with a moderately higher use rate among porn actresses compared with women outside of porn. Significantly, the comparison of porn performers and non-porn performers found no difference in the rate or incidence of childhood sexual abuse (CSA). This may be unfortunately due to the widespread sexual victimization of young girls across the board. About 36 percent of porn actresses reported being victims of childhood sexual assault; about 30 percent of the matched sample said they were victims of childhood sexual abuse. However, these findings certainly do not indicate a vastly lower rate of CSA among women outside of the pornography industry. There are several limitations to the original study and the later investigation of the “damaged goods” hypothesis. First, the research focuses only on women. Although this is important, future studies will hopefully include male performers, and gender fluid or trans actors. Second, the research asks only whether participants experienced childhood sexual abuse. Read More: https://kupdf.com/download/the-pornography-industry_59f15a28e2b6f5b16e1145e3_pdf
  12. The Porn Myth: Uncovering the Truth about Sex Stars By Stephanie Pappas, Live Science Contributor "The average span of a performer's career is usually only about six to 18 months, so the benefit of participating in these things isn't usually apparent to the people who are in it at the time," Kayden Kross, an adult film actress and writer, told LiveScience. Not only that, Kross said, but many actresses are reluctant to help researchers, because they're worried that the studies will be used against them by anti-pornography activists. [The Sex Quiz: Myths, Taboos and Bizarre Facts] "The difficulty with this population has always been access," said James Griffith, a psychologist at Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania and one of the few scientists to delve into the subject. "It's a very difficult population to define." Read More: https://www.livescience.com/27428-truth-about-porn-stars.html
  13. As far as the age 37, here is one site that lists ages and causes of death: http://danielrjennings.org/TheAverageLifeExpectancyOfAPornStar.html I believe this list is where everyone gets 37 years of age as the average life expectancy for pornstars. I agree that the 37 number could be flawed. This is not a scientific study nor a likely statistically representative sample nor a complete list of adult performers. Here are a few more sites that lists the porn performers that have passed on: http://thekbh.org/dead_hos.htm http://www.rame.net/faq/deadporn/ One can also conduct searches for pornstars that have passed away from the Internet Adult Film Database or Wikiporno.

It will also likely complicate your romantic and familial relationships. A new documentary, “After Porn Ends,” examines the personal lives and careers of stars of the adult industry. It focuses particularly on the transition to life after porn and features porn stars Asia Carrera, Mary Carey, Houston and others. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/After_Porn_Ends The film describes a career in porn as a “brief shining moment” of fame, sex and money. “Nobody thinks it’s going to end,” a man in the film explains. Former porn stars also discuss the de-humanizing element of porn that insiders often don’t want to admit. “I just started feeling really depressed about it. I can’t do anything else. This is what I’m good at. This is all I know,” former porn star Crissy Moran said. (In 2013, Crissy Moran started www.newcrissymoran.com to reflect her life after porn. As of 2013, Moran works for Treasures, a 501(c)3 nonprofit founded in 2003 by a former dancer to help women heal from what she calls "sexual brokenness.") Part of the biggest struggle is trying to leave their pasts behind. “What are you going to do ten years from now when your kid brings home a magazine?” she said. “It doesn’t go away.” From Pink Cross, which is no longer an active 501(c)3 nonprofit charity. https://thepinkcross.org Average life expectancy of a porn star is 36.2 years – 1208 porn stars died prematurely from aids, drugs, suicide, homicide, accidental and medical since 2014 – 2#1 suicide method among porn stars is by hanging – 367 porn stars that we know of committed suicide – 466% of porn performers have Herpes, a non-curable disease. – 52,396 cases of Chlamydia and 1,389 cases of Gonorrhea reported among performers since 2004. – 6Over 100 straight and gay performers died from AIDS. – 736 porn stars died that we know of from HIV, suicide, homicide and drugs between 2007 and 2010. – 8Of all known child abuse domains, 48 percent are housed in the United States. – 926 cases of HIV reported by Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation (AIM), since 2004. – 10 From Truth Behind the Fantasy of Porn by Shelley Lubben https://download.e-bookshelf.de/download/0004/3323/75/L-X-0004332375-0012590146.XHTML/index.xhtml Male porn star Christian XXX also speaks openly about the widespread drug use. He wrote on his blog in January, 2008, “I have seen all manner of drugs on set, at parties, in cars, everywhere. If I had to guess, I would put marijuana use at 90 percent of all people involved in the industry (performers, directors, crew, agents, drivers, owners, office workers, etc.). I have been on a set where a girl has passed out DURING a sex scene with me (she was abusing oxycontin). Just recently a girl overdosed on GHB (a party drug that is a clear, odorless drug that doesn’t mix well with alcohol) on set. I have seen a girl win a prestigious AVN Award, not show up to accept the award, and then fall into the throes of drug use that caused her to lose at least 50 pounds and drop off the face of the earth.”
