Highlights From the May 2004 AVN Online Magazine: Strange bedfellows: Rock 'n' rap storm porn, but where can we go from here? Your porn music still sucks; sex, tech, and rock 'n' roll.

Strange Bedfellows:

Rock 'n' roll, rap music and pornography have strutted hand in hand for a decade and their bond has found its way onto the Internet through a variety of Websites that cater to the trend of rap and rock stars using the adult entertainment world to market themselves.

AVN Online magazine, the information authority for the adult Internet, reports on the bond between music and porn, both as an art form and lifestyle, in an article by Frank Majors in the May issue.

"Sites like GothicSluts.com, MK-Magazine.com, SleazeGrinder.com, FishnGrits.com and 420Girls.com mix adult content with music coverage, artist interviews, and CD reviews, often featuring exclusive photos of rappers and rockers cavorting with porn stars," Majors writes.

Noting that rapper Son Doobie of Cypress Hill in 1997 "had the distinction of being the first musician to have sex on camera (for pay and public consumption, at least), starring in Vivid's Son Doobie, Porn King," Majors says that the genre has become a mainstay for stars like Snoop Dog, Too Short, Luther Campbell, Motley Crue's Vince Neil, and even superstar rapper 50 Cent.

What's next? Asks Majors: "If Ron Jeremy can get a role on a reality show like the Surreal Life, will a Jenna Jameson-hosted talk show be far behind? How about Meryl Streep in a dramatic remake of Deep Throat" or a Bruce Springsteen party DVD called Born to Screw?" He writes that "one rock star who is choosing to be seen having sex on camera is bassist/vocalist Evan Seinfeld of seminal rock-rap pioneers Biohazard...who will be the sole onscreen male partner of porn star wife Tera Patrick, who recently signed with Vivid Entertainment Group as a contract star and runs her own company, TeraVision (OfficialTeraPatrick.com). Erika Kole, who performs in music videos and runs a Website (TheNakedChic.com) is quoted as saying, "I think it is cool that our culture is finally relaxing and realizing that it's just sex. On the other hand, it might decrease sales if porn is no longer though of as being 'dirty.' People like the dirty nature of it. I know I do." (Page 86; interview available with Frank Majors)

Porn music still sucks (but there's hope)

Every form of music seems to have its fans and experts, and porn music is no exception. Writer Violet Blue, who charts the history of music in adult movies in the May issue of AVN Online magazine, notes that most music in XXX films is "sure to dampen any prior arousal the viewer has cultivated...bad porn music is like an embarrassing side effect of a promising arousal pill, and is part and parcel of our porn viewing experience." Nonetheless, Blue writes, there are now "several blossoming porn-music-related subcultures" where fans who adore it are creating compilations, remixes and streaming Internet radio stations."

"The definition of 'good' is as subjective as the definition of 'obscenity' - and the recent emergence of cheesy porn tracks as a trendy and cool music genre perhaps demonstrates that 'community standards' may be a faulty measure," she writes. She reports that porn legend Ron Jeremy is involved with a site called Pornosonic (www.Pornosonic.com) and the Deep Note series from Ost Grammofonpladen is made up of audio CDs with cuts from classic 1970s porn films. Pop Porn by the Pop Porn Band masquerades as a '70s group while sex-O-Rama (www.oglio.com) "might be the best known of these audio nightmares."

"But retro porn music isn't all that is loved by porn music fans; there is an equally growing fan base for modern audio wankers," Blue writes, citing Michael Ninn's Latex and Shock, both available at Amazon.co.uk. (Page 100; interview available with Violet Blue)

Sex, tech, and rock 'n' roll

"Technology has become the preferred drug of choice," according to Tom Hymes, editor in chief of AVN Online magazine. Writing in the May issue, Hymes says online tech is "really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to toys that young people integrate into their lives as indispensable items signifying that elusive quality of hip." Says Hymes, "people don't want to be told how, when and where they can watch what they've paid for, and what they haven't paid for. It's that last wrinkle that has these big, tough CEOs sleepless in Seattle." He adds that "Internet pornographers are like war merchants... they exploit every opportunity and every weakness they encounter. They see themselves as entrepreneurial rock stars, above and beyond the rules, and they scoff when buttoned-up politicians who pander to tiny constituencies threaten to control them and their product. They know with the confidence of youth that time is on their side. Rock on!" (Page 28; interview available with Tom Hymes)
