Pastor Craig Gross and porn star Nina Hartley met Thursday evening in the Student Center to debate the merits and demerits of pornography in front of 450 students.

The event, hosted by the Kennesaw Activities Board, was initially supposed to feature porn star Ron Jeremy, who is recovering from recent operations to correct an aneurysm near his heart.

Gross asked porn actress Nina Hartley to stand in. He and Hartley debated the event once before.

Gross is the founder of xxxchurch.com, a website dedicated to helping people overcome pornography addictions. He started the website after realizing that many of the people he knew struggled with porn in their personal lives.

He and Ron Jeremy started The Great Porn Debate about five years ago, and the two began touring the country speaking at churches and universities.

And this is what happens when you make obscene art pornography.

Are you a budding pornography maker? Then let the following tale be a word of advice to you. Lay up on the human excrement and the bit with femme fatales having sex with animals. I know some of you find it kinky but America’s legal system if you must know doesn’t. Why? Cause it’s just too offensive…

Yesterday, Ira Isaacs, the man behind “2 Girls, 1 Cup” was sentenced to four years in prison after being convicted on five counts of felony obscenity in April 2012.

His crimes? Recording and distributing porn featuring the following: women performing sex acts involving animals and human waste.

dailymail.co.uk: The jail time ends a long-running legal saga that saw two mistrials, including one in which sexually explicit material was found on a personal website of the chief justice of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, who was overseeing the case.

OXNARD, Calif. — A middle school teacher who was fired after students learned she had appeared in pornography has lost her appeal to return to the classroom, her lawyer said Tuesday.

A three-judge panel unanimously decided Stacie Halas, 32, was unfit for the classroom. Halas was fired in April from her job as a science teacher at Haydock Intermediate School in Oxnard after online videos of her in porn were discovered by students and teachers.

"Although (Halas') pornography career has concluded, the ongoing availability of her pornographic materials on the Internet will continue to impede her from being an effective teacher and respected colleague," Judge Julie Cabos-Owen wrote in a 46-page decision issued Friday by the Commission on Professional Competence.

Halas was continually deceitful about her nine-month career in porn before she went to work at the school, the decision said.

Her lawyer Richard Schwab said Halas had tried to be honest but was embarrassed by her previous experience in the adult industry.

The stereotype that female porn stars are "damaged goods" who have experienced sexual abuse as a child is inaccurate, according to a new study.

In fact, porn actresses have higher levels of self-esteem, positive feelings, social support, sexual satisfaction and spirituality, according to the study "Pornography Actresses: An Assessment of the Damaged Goods Hypothesis."

However, stereotypes regarding the actors' current sexuality are true, according to the study, which compared the self-reports of 177 porn actresses and was published in the Journal of Sex Research. The study found that porn actresses were more likely to identify as bisexual, have had sex at an early age, had more sexual partners, were more concerned about contracting STD's and enjoyed sex more than the matched sample.

The study has several co-authors, including former porn actress Sharon Mitchell and Texas Woman's University professor Christian L Hart.

However, a HuffPost blogger and former porn actress, Jennie Ketcham, would refute the study's claim that porn actresses have more "positive feelings." She blogged for the New York Times earlier this month that being a porn star was traumatic, and she experienced symptoms similar to those of post-traumatic stress disorder after leaving the industry.

Mark Spiegler of "Spiegler Girls," an agent for elite adult actresses, gave an estimate of how much an in-demand actress would make for certain scenes.
Adult entertainment aka “porn” has been around for many centuries. Before we had Internet porn, we had pictures and film. Before the age of pictures and film, pornography came in the form of drawings and so forth. In short, adult entertainment is never going to go away. People still continue to watch porn by the minute. With the Internet and the availability of access combined with mobile technology, one can access pornography on the go. Plus, you have to consider sexual texting called “sexting” and text message with sexual photos. In short, sex sells. The pornography industry sells sex pictures, movies, and games. In the case of Japan, you have animated porn called “hentai.” There is the question: How much do porn performers get paid?
Mark Spiegler, an agent to the porn stars, gave a pay-scale for actresses that are in-demand. However, the pay-scale is not known for the actresses that are not much in demand. If you're an in-demand actress, this is the following you'd make according to Spiegler: At least $800 if it is a girl-on-girl scene, at least $1K for a guy-on-girl scene, at least $1,200 if the scene involves anal sex, and at least $4K if the scene involves “double penetration” which is also known as “DP.” Nothing has been said for solo scenes, “gang bang” scenes, threesomes, orgies, etc. But, this is the current scale according to Spiegler. Spiegler has his agency called “Spiegler Girls” which represents the in-demand actresses. This agency is located in the San Fernando valley of California. Keep in mind that the agent takes a cut of the payments to the actresses.
