Why It’s important to talk about porn

You only have to look at the statistics to understand the enormity of the porn industry. Last year, according to PornHub, there were 28.5 billion visitors with 81 million a day and 50,000 searches a minute.  And that’s only one site. Yet, most people will publicly shun or not even talk about it. Look around, don’t you now wonder who isn’t looking at porn as opposed to who is? Have you also ever questioned why on the customs declaration form it asks you if you are carrying illegal pornography and what that even means? In a nut shell, anything violent and where someone looks underage is illegal. So even if the person in the film is over age, if they look young, it’s not allowed on our shores. But isn’t ‘looking young’ a matter of opinion? Is a tartan skirt and pigtails all it takes? When I investigated this, I…

Being a successful male porn star is more complicated than you might think

One of the perks of my job is being able to have access to some interesting people and I’m not sure why, but throughout the years I have gravitated to those in porn. Mainly because I have become fascinated as to how the in industry works. We hear a lot about female porn stars and most, when you say the words, ‘male porn star’ conjure up images of Ron Jeremy from the 80’s. So who really are these men and what are their lives all about? Male porn stars are considered genetically gifted; men with genitals that are required to stay hard for hours on end. But succeeding in porn isn’t nearly so simple as having all the right bits in all the right places. Ericka Ikon owner of The Rub PR, who looks after many adult stars explains that for a male star, the road to success is not…

Why I Took My Dad To A Sex Toy Expo…

If you have been following my adventures on social media, you will be well aware that I recently attended the Adult Care Expo in Shanghai (in a nut shell a sex toy convention). I also took my Dad with me with many people making interesting comments and asking why. When you have been a sexologist for quite some time, you often forget that the things you think are normal sound strange and crazy to others, this being one of them. The reason I took my Dad is because he is a businessman and is very good at advice. (plus he is a lot of fun to travel with). Whilst at the expo, you could forget for a moment that we were talking to people about vibrators and sex dolls and it felt as though we were discussing nearly any product that needs to be manufactured. There are moulds to be…

Why I’m Attending A Porn Conference?

Why the AVNs? ( A big porn conference in Vegas). I have always been fascinated by the porn world, the industry that is. Over the years, starting off in my early career working at Sexpo, I have the privilege of getting to know some of the industry’s biggest names. But I was pleasantly surprised by what I got to see. I remember writing my first piece on porn stars and it was titled, “porn stars are people too.” I think we all have this idea and stereotype of what a porn star should be. But with the exception of a few, mostly they are normal average people who are in touch with their sexuality. (Please note, I hate using the world normal in sentences like this as what is normal anyway? But for the purpose of trying to prove my point in regards to porn stars and how many people…
