Reasons Fifty Shades of Grey is Successful
Fifty, Fifty, Fifty. It’s all anyone could think about leading up to the film, and it seems that the craze still lingers. Eager women everywhere are squeezing their thighs shut in anticipation of seeing their fantasy come to life on the big screen. From movie trailers, cast interviews, and a lot of female gossip, there is no way to escape the Fifty Shades frenzy that has taken over. So what are women expecting out of the spicy hit novel turned film? Reviews are mixed that’s for sure. While some women would have seen the movie even if Seth Rogen had been cast as Christian Grey, others were gung-ho about boycotting the film altogether (or at least until it hits DVD). What I don’t understand is why there must be so many Fifty Shades Of Grey haters. As a reader and lover of all three volumes, I would like to give a big "fuck you" to all the women who are making us Grey fans feel guilty.
Miriam Weeks' Journey to Belle Knox
She Googled: How to be a porn star? Just like that, Duke student Belle Knox found a way to pay her $60,000 a year tuition. While many have focused on criticizing Belle Knox’s decision or her rise to porn fame, she would prefer they focus on what led her to become a college student porn star. Tuitions are skyrocketing. It was time to get a job or get a loan.
Beautiful Bollywood Babes
There is a new wave of hotness in the Bollywood culture. Young, fresh and beautiful faces of the actresses, models and activists in Indian pop are taking over the Bollywood screens. Bollywood is a booming industry for these women with their dark hair, olive skin and exotic faces as they are gracing TV screens and movie screens at an increasing rate. Plus, with Indian women being some of the most beautiful in the world, it’s no surprise that women like Sakshi Pradhan, Deepika Padukone, and Kangana Ranaut are some of the biggest names in Bollywood.
Wealthy Male Porn Stars Are Loaded
Big dicks can mean big bucks. Ironically the Adult Industry is the reverse of Wall Street. The big swinging dicks make less than the big bouncy breasts. Women are increasingly controlling the talent and the business, but what they cant bring to the table is big dick. While still the underdogs of porn, a select group of the well endowed men still pack it in.
Most Successful Porn Stars
Mainstreaming has nothing to do with golden showers. In fact, mainstreaming is the movement of adult entertainers into other careers and mediums of entertainment. However, many people don’t perceive porn stars as successful. In order to break down the stereotypes of porn stars, Filthy has collected some evidence that disproves these theories and enforces a more positive view of these successful men and women. Whether you’re talking about “porntrepreneur” Joanna Angel or law school graduate Heather Swift, many adult entertainers are much more than the pretty faces and bodies that they are known for. Filthy enjoys stripping away a man or woman’s porn identity and revealing their successful lives outside of the porn industry. From Asia Carrera to Paige Jennings, this list showcases ten of the most successful porn stars who have done more than just have sex on camera.
Outrageous Porn Achievements
The first Olympic Games can be traced back to 776 BC. These games were dedicated to the Olympian gods and staged on the ancient plains of Olympia. What is not as well known is the outrageous Porn Olympic Games that went on once the arena emptied out and the brothels filled up. That tradition is kept alive today by hundreds of professional porn stars treating their fans to outrageous feats of sexual prowess that would make a Spartan envious.
Origin of Stripping
Like the plumage and color markings of lesser species, style and fashion help send signals to the opposite sex. More than 300 years ago, Robert Burton expressed this view when he wrote in The Anatomy of Melancholy, “The greatest provocations of lust are from our apparel.”
Sexploitation in Grindhouse Theaters
Grindhouse is a return to the world of the real. It’s a realm where not every filmgoer is an upscale Mom and Dad taking the kids out to see some Pixar bugs twitter and crack wise. It’s a place where demented Vietnam vets with hooks for hands, abused hookers weeping that their daddy-man don’t love ‘em, crazed Dahmers and Gacys in waiting stare at the slaughtered women on the screen and scream, "Yes yes! Do it, do it!" Is it emotionally wholesome and chemically clean? Hell no. But it’s a lot of fun. These theaters have taken shut-down burlesque halls and transformed them into grindhouse arenas that air exploitation films. From Woods Theatre in Chicago to Castro Theatre in San Francisco, dive into the vintage universe of grindhouse at these theaters.
