It’s intimidating walking onto set for one of your first “real” (i.e. paid, studio, featured) boy-girl porn scenes and finding Nyomi Banxxx as your costar. Nyomi is absolutely stunning, even better looking in person than in pictures, and she brought her A game from start to finish. Her verbal humiliation was delivered smoothly and expertly, with a more enthusiastic and articulate flow than I’ve heard in almost any other top. I felt like a 4 who somehow found himself in bed with a 10. I can see why she has 30,000 twitter followers. This woman knows what she’s doing, and does it damn well. It was so intimidating that during the third scene I was guilty of my first (and so far only) pornographic premature ejaculation. In my defense, I was bound and gagged at the time, so communication was somewhat more difficult than usual. And an immensely beautiful woman was riding my cock.
This was also my first “interracial” scene, and they played the race card hard. The issue of race in porn is something I feel strongly about, but it definitely has some nuance. Maggie and I have talked about this at length. Some people have strongly racially charged fantasies, and it is alright to feature those fantasies fictionally in porn provided that the porn is made ethically. The problem is the way non-white porn performers are treated in an industry that almost universally views their race as a fetish in and of itself. When the color of your skin makes you a niche market, you never have the same opportunities as a white performer.
If you’re a porn viewer that really gets off to dominant black women, I have no particular beef with you – just make sure that you put some thought into what part of your psyche is causing this racial charge and make sure that it doesn’t lead to any discriminatory behavior. But in order to create this porn ethically, porn producers need to stand up to an ingrained industry standard. This is America, and as Maggie likes to point out, the girl next door is not always white. Let’s stop marketing porn as if black, asian, or latin porn is an entirely different type than white porn. Race play may still have a place in porn, but not all porn with a racial minority ought to be race play.
Let me be clear that this rant applies to the industry as a whole. This specific shoot was a fun day with an amazing sex partner, and I hope some of you get off watching it.
