Red Carpet

Last night I went to an adult industry event in West Hollywood. Walking in to this nightclub, I wasn't sure if this was an adult industry exclusive event or if there were other non-adult industry people mingled with the rest. But it was really exclusively an adult industry event. (In porn, people in porn are professionals, and people who are not in porn are civilians.) At some point someone asked me about what I thought or how I thought things had changed, and I said, you know, fifteen years ago, a porn star looked like a porn star. Now, it's harder to tell. The lines have blurred. The girls are more diverse, and the fashions are less extreme, and the division is not so stark. I suppose that's like porn itself. More mainstream. Yet still on the fringe. Somewhere in between. Was it a porn event? In a way, yes. In a way, no.
