The Porno Princess Who Didn’t Want the Work.

"No wearing sweats on a porn set!"
This is beneath me!
I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: I don’t want this blog to be about gossip. I’ll leave the gossip to the folks who wanna do that sort of thing. Not that there’s anything wrong with gossip…I’m sure if this was a gossip blog, I Shoot Porn would get a lot more traffic.

I will talk about my experiences in this crazy biz, and when something new happens, I’ll share it with you. Maybe that’s why I don’t have a lot to say anymore…up til today, I’ve seen — and blogged — it all. So when things happen over and over, I don’t want to sound like a broken record…so I don’t blog. But today was a first.

In a nutshell, Porno Princess walked off my set.

For the blog, here’s the story: my studio isn’t in Beverly Hills. Shit, this ain’t even Van Nuys…or Chatsworth. It’s East LA, and it’s a rough part of town, and to top it all off, my studio opens up to a very rough alley…an alley you might score some crack, or dump a dead body, or shoot someone…or do all three! In fact, all those things have happened in my alley, but I’ve never seen a dead body. My neighbors have, though.

I like my neighborhood, and I like my neighbors. They all know what I do, and no one has any sort of problem with it. My neighborhood has personality — along with a fairly well-known street gang. Big whoop.

Some of the agents have been to my studio, and all the agents know about my alley. The girls do, too, and no one’s ever said anything more than, “wow! Interesting alley. I bet I could score some crack here if I wanted it. Or dump a dead body in that dumpster. Or shoot someone, and then dump the body.”

No one’s ever not taken a gig cause of it.

Wait a sec. That’s a double-negative. I’m an ex-school teacher. I should know better than that. Let’s revise: No one’s ever refused to work due to the “environment” here. I put quotes around that word, cause Porno Princess today used it. She also didn’t feel comfortable working in a place where people where sweats, either. And finally, either the content I shoot, or this place, or both, were “beneath” her.

And she walked.

Here’s how it goes on my porno set: girl comes in, and if it’s her first time, I comment about the alley, then I show her into the space, and I go over where drinks are (this is when I point to the 5 gallon water cooler and the dorm-room fridge, where all the Arizona Ice Tea products are (I’m not a fan of soda)), and the rules with the bathroom (no flushing tampons or lotsa baby wipes, cause my drain is sensitive); then I introduce Porno Princess to Maggie (the wonder dog who’s seen more live sex acts committed than any other dog on the planet), The Minion (my trusty helper), and my make-up artist, who sits Porno Princess down and asks her girly questions about make-up and shit.

That’s when I usually break and go do my thang, which on this very day included lunch (super good BBQ ribs that were leftovers from my make-up artist’s Cinco de Mayo celebrations) and then I showered and changed out of my sweats to some real clothes (underpants, shorts, and a Licorice Pizza tee I scored at a flea market yesterday). Which is about the time I walked downstairs and didn’t see the girl. My make-up artist said, “she just left to go use the phone.”

I knew this wasn’t a good thing, but I had no idea she was down on me, or my staff, or my place. I walked outside, waved her back in, and then answered my phone, cause it started ringing…and it was her agent. “Billy, she’s really freaking out right now. She doesn’t want to work.”

My jaw dropped.

My jaw dropped the way it usually does when something dumb happens that I’ve never seen before. In a flash, all sorts of things were running through my head as to why: it didn’t even cross my mind that The Minion might have offended her, cause he doesn’t roll that way; nor does my make-up artist upset anyone, so when she walked in, I said to her agent, “I don’t believe in secret conversations. I’m putting you on speaker phone, and please repeat what you just told me.”

“She doesn’t feel comfortable there. She doesn’t like the environment. She also said someone is there in sweats, and she doesn’t think that’s appropriate for a workplace. She just thinks it’s all beneath her.”

All of us stood there, looking at the phone sitting in the palm of my hand: Make-up Artist, The Minion, Maggie the Wonderdog, Porno Princess, and me.

Maggie looked up at me, rolled her eyes, and said, “what a cunt. Of course she waited to bail after her make-up was done!”

I don’t know if I told you this, but only I could hear Maggie when she talks. She’s got a very attractive voice, too…kinda like the lady who talks to you on your GPS. Then Maggie followed up with, “don’t get angry. Don’t yell. Remember your practice. Just be nice to her and move on.”

Which is what I did.

And after everyone was gone, I called The Agent back and asked what the real reason was. “I don’t know. It’s really weird. I mean she likes sex. Shit, she went to a party last weekend and ended up banging like 5 dudes. But she’s been on a lot of drugs, lately. Maybe she got paranoid. Coke will do that to you.”

Yes, it will.

  1. hey howdy! man! sup!

    I read you part, it was a bit sad, but it’s ok I think for you to know that this is a small example of how porn personnel go thru, on the part of performers, I see some tweets of porn performers on internet and they scare the shit outta me sometimes, I feel they aren’t as balanced as one want them to be, not all of course but some who are famous btw

    good luck on your next experiences

  2. wow! Fucking diva’s, i wonder what she would have thought of the glory hole! lol i hope you make her pay a kill fee!

    Maggie Rules:D

  3. Sounds like you had a very bad day, Billy. However, if she truly fucked five different guys at a party recently it may be for the best, especially if you or Minion were the male talent on this one. The industry does test every 28 days but if she is fucking five civilians every weekend that test is just about worthless by the 21st day. Also, if she was high (you can’t always tell) consent would be an issue. At least the agent told you what the real reason probably was rather than leading you on a proverbial goose-chase. I guess all you can do is put her on that no list that Mr. Syphilis is on and live to make another porno with a more cooperative and less addicted porn princess.

    To all porn wannabes reading: not all sets are Will Ryder’s “Not __________” movies with full catering, a script and 20 other performers. Don’t expect that on every set. The days of most movies being directed by Nicholas Steele, Nick Orleans, Bud Lee or Roy Karch and having full catering and a $100K budget are over. Roy Karch is now doing mainstream projects, Bud Lee is an talent agent and the two Nicks haven’t done a porno in ages. Maybe that is for the best, I don’t know but I do miss traditional full length features. About half of all sets are just two or three performers, a camera man and a director and the scene is sex only (called gonzo in the biz) with no script. However, just because a scene isn’t a Hollywood-level blockbuster doesn’t mean you should reject it. Starting out you need to build good references and a good reputation and scenes for someone like Billy (who does seem like a good guy) can both pay the bills and get you that scene with Will Ryder or John Stagliano. Yes, the first thing a director of a big-budget movie does is call your prior directors and producers to gauge how reliable you will be and if you will come to the set sober and ready to work. Leaving a director hanging like the chick in this article did WILL cost you future work unless you have a damn good reason. Besides, you can have just as much fun fucking on a gonzo set like Billy’s as you can fucking for Will Ryder (and the time spent working is much shorter) and the money spends the same.

  4. Billy, thank you for continuing to write. I am not a big porn guy these days, but the business – and more importantly, the people – still interests me. Amazing stories.

  5. Can i suggest an hypothetical follow up to this story?

    After this happened, agent drops the girl from its talent pool.
    Princess leaves the ‘dirty’ porn biz, is now back to “glam modeling” & private planes type “companionship’s” (thank you XXX for the PR = +$).

    How far am i?

  6. The girl in the pic is Presley Dawson. I was looking forward to seeing a scene from her on one of your sites. Did she really do this?

  7. If you’re going to do a blog, you need to learn how to fucking write. Your style of writing is the most incomprehensible that I have ever come across. Reading your shit takes forever because of your shitty style. Get your shit together, shitter.

  8. Paranoia is a good thing in this case. The way the alley was described would have made anyone think twice before sticking around.

  9. Wow how would anyone turn you down after describing a wonderful place that you work at. Also last time I checked it is a business where you can choose if you want to do the job or not. If you feel so bad about this, move to a better location and if you have problems with the talent, don’t hire them anymore. I am sure you are on your way to bigger and better things with an attitude like this. By the way I am shocked that you once were a school teacher. Scares the hell out of me you were around children with the mind you have.

  10. Billy I love the Blog but this situation is one sided. I would like to hear what she had to say about this event. I have been in situations where shit just didn’t fell right and I bailed. Regardless if this chicks fucked 5 guys prior doesn’t mean she doesn’t snap out of being a whore every now and then. I have fucked girls in places where there way roaches crawling around. So the environment you described does not surprise me but I do see how it could put someone off. I hate those scenes when people fuck outside and you see a flies buzzing around though. I always here people in the Biz saying it just work. So why are we so freaked out but the fact that these women do not want to work sometimes? Work makes you fell like bailing out regardless of the impact. It is sad to hear this chick is on drugs. It sucks when chicks are motivated by drugs to do wild crazy shit they regret later. When all this social media I wish I could hear both sides of the story. Do any these chicks even read the comments posted about them? Probably not because people talk a gang of shit that they wouldn’t if they knew them. Most of the time women in the Biz avoid real questions about their well being and try to be fucking cute. That shit aint cute when it’s to late and then you turn around and say how the Biz did you and all the sex was just a act.

  11. I thought people just enjoyed sex I didn’t know they where there just for the food and a good makeup job. Oh and following female pornstars on twitter is a waste of time unless there is some real good interaction. I don’t want to see links to sites and that stuff. It’s a damn tease we only have so long to live and we waste time jacking off on computers.

  12. Ummmm…This chick has obviously never worked with Ron Jeremy…I think I’ve seen him once in something other than sweats! And who doesn’t dig the neurotic stylings of RJ?

  13. Catching up on the old posts..its been awhile. This made me laugh and miss the daily craziness in the business. I always miss it, and then I remember why I hate it. Kind of a rinse and repeat situation. I hope you are well Billy!

  14. WOULD it kill you to put on at least a decent pair of jeans? It really may be that people DON’T want to work with scumbag looking people in a scumbag filled neighborhood.

    If someone doesn’t know to expect a gang neighborhood, or a guy still dressing like a college frat boy when they open the door, that COULD be a red flag that this is not a professional organization.
