Porn Industry In Decline: Insiders Adapt To Piracy, Waning DVD Sales

Walking around the Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) in Las Vegas, you’d never know the porn industry was at half-mast, sales-wise.

There are floor-to-ceiling billboards of scantily clad sex actresses and HD TV screens showing every conceivable type of fornication (and a few unconceivable ones as well). Fans can take pictures with stars like Lisa Ann (the porn version of Sarah Palin), Julia Ann (no relation) and Alexis Texas (formerly Alexis Texass). If polite enough, the fanboy or frangirl might even get to touch a breast.

If the AEE was one’s only exposure to the industry, the crowded convention hall might seem proof that porn is truly recession-proof. But insiders claim the business has gone limp — metaphorically speaking — because more people are watching porn for free over the Internet instead of purchasing it.

The end result means fewer gigs for hard-working porn performers like Dave Cummings, a 72-year-old porn actor who has also produced three series: “Dirty Dave’s Sugar Daddy,” “Sex Fun” and “Kneepad Nymphos.”

“The piracy has killed the industry,” Cummings told HuffPost.

“I’d say 80 percent of the companies that were around five years ago either don’t exist or are hanging by a thread. The day a new video comes out, within 24 hours, someone has set up a tripod in front of their TV to copy it and then uploaded it illegally.”

Cummings is staying home in San Diego this year, and feels the piracy has forced him into a premature retirement. “I’m not able to cover production costs, so why do it?” he said. “Companies that are still in business are either paying less in salary or having McDonalds do the catering instead of craft services.”

James Deen, Porn Star, Discusses Lindsay Lohan Sex Scene In ‘The Canyons’

Lindsay Lohan was contractually obligated to be involved in a four-person sex scene in the upcoming Bret Easton Ellis film, “The Canyons.” Her co-star, pornography legend James Deen, would be part of the act.

Naturally, the world wants to know: Will we see Deen and Lohan in a full-on, hardcore porn scene?

Deen said at the Adult Entertainment Expo on Thursday that no film written by Ellis is going to be a tacky porno. “The Canyons” is no exception.

“We didn’t have sex,” Deen told HuffPost. “Yes, it’s a four-way. Sure, you see boobs and ass. … It’s a plot-driver, and it was shot in a way where you’re not thinking it’s just four people having sex.”

Lohan, who plays the lead role of Tara in the film directed by Paul Schrader, has had her share of hard times on set. She was fired and rehired for being a no-show, had a falling out with Schrader, and took issue with the graphic nature of the sex scenes according to The New York Times.

“I thought she was great to work with, I never had any issues with Lindsay,” Deen said. “But I don’t have to deal with the Hollywood bullsh-t aspect of the film … I enjoyed her on a personal level.”

There’s a stereotype in the adult entertainment world that porn stars tend to date rock stars, A-list celebs and those with extravagant lifestyles. With that in mind, could Deen see himself with Lohan?

“Let’s say, hypothetically we wanted to date after filming — which was not the case — she, as a person, was great,” Deen said. “But we don’t like to do the same things. My idea of a good Friday night is sitting on the couch with my buddies.

Lindsay can’t even go to Starbucks. She’s so famous that she literally cannot just go out. She has to be snuck in through a secret passage so the paparazzi don’t get to her … That would stop us from being a successful couple, nothing else.”

“The Canyons” is supposed to come out some time this year.
