    Cameron Bess: Pansexual Furry Astronaut

    Cameron Bess: Pansexual Furry Astronaut

    Today’s guest is Cameron Bess, AKA Meeps Kitten. He is a Furry, he is pansexual, and he is an ASTRONAUT. Yes, you read that right - he is the first pansexual person and the first Furry - that we know of - to go to space! This episode is kind of hilarious because it’s almost like two separate interviews - obviously first things first, I had a million questions about his experience as a furry. What IS a furry? Is it always a sexual thing? Whats the sexiest animal? Do the furry suits always stay on during sex? I ALSO had some questions about going to space. What was the whole experience like? What does zero gravity feel like? Cameron is maybe the first astronaut I’ve ever spoken to in my life, and he was gracious enough to get into everything I brought up, and he was just so cool - I'm so thankful he shared his insights with us.

    Sean Baker, Director of Red Rocket: On Suitcase Pimps and Anti-heroes

    Sean Baker, Director of Red Rocket: On Suitcase Pimps and Anti-heroes

    Today’s guest is Sean Baker, director of The Florida Project, Tangerine, Starlet, and most recently, Red Rocket. Red Rocket is a movie about a retired male pornstar (played by Simon Rex) who has returned to his small hometown - and it's literally the best movie I have ever seen about our industry, ever. You MUST go watch it immediately. I talked to Sean about what it was like to shoot a movie about porn, what it was like to shoot a movie during covid, and what it was like to shoot on film rather than digital. We talked about why he always makes movies about the unconventional, grittier side of life. We discussed open-ended endings, finding actors in unlikely places, and we talked about unlikable characters and what makes them likable. This was a really enlightening conversation and I learned so much about the OTHER side of Hollywood and how a mainstream movie is made. Oh also, we talked a lot about porn. Obviously. Enjoy!

    Leo Vice: Asian Male Pornstar

    Leo Vice: Asian Male Pornstar

    Leo Vice was working a regular 9-5 in the corporate world, before entering the porn industry in his mid 30s - becoming one of the very few mainstream Asian male pornstars in the US. Why are there so few Asian men in porn? Why are there barely any in media in the US in general? What is “pretty privilege?” Is “paying your dues” in porn via blowbangs a thing of the past? Do all male performers take performance enhancing drugs? It was interesting for me to talk to someone who was BRAND new in the business, I feel like I haven’t done that in a while and it made me remember the excitement that comes with starting a career in porn. Also… Leo tells me the story of when we first met. Which I have zero recollection of.

    Robin Tran Does Not Want to be Your Trans Hero

    Robin Tran Does Not Want to be Your Trans Hero

    Robin Tran just emerged from a lifelong depression, and her career EXPLODED during the pandemic. She’s my favorite person I’ve met recently; She’s hilarious, smart as f**k, irreverent yet profound, cocky yet devastatingly introspective, and has so many of the strangest obsessions yet is oddly… one of the most relatable people I have ever come across. I feel like I discovered her comedy and within a week she was just everywhere I turned. Needless to say, I HAD to interview her. She was gracious enough to dive into any and every topic that came up. I laughed SO MUCH throughout this interview, Robin is the kind of girl I walked away from the interview feeling like… I’m desperate to be her friend. We hit so many topics: Are we five years away from a gay pro wrestling storyline? What does a manic episode look like when you’re bipolar - does it feel amazing? Is this the greatest time to be in comedy for a nerd? What is an Asian person through the “white gaze?” Is it possible to be a good comic without overcoming obstacles? What was it like to come out as transgender as a public figure? Have porn and comedy changed forever since the pandemic? Is it possible to have a career in comedy without standup? Whats the difference between sadness and depression? Are human beings capable of being logical, or are we inherently illogical? Also: similarities between stand up and stripping. Also also: major Eminem rant included.

    Trip Richards: TRIPLE X TRANSMAN

    Trip Richards: TRIPLE X TRANSMAN

    Our guest today is the one and only Trip Richards, aka Triple X Transman. How can one have a career in porn without shooting for mainstream studios? Is activism a privilege, are trans sex workers “activists” simply by existing? Can it be minimizing to say gender is a social construct? Why is so much “queer” porn made for the straight male gaze? Is bottoming secretly the most dominant thing, or is topping the most submissive thing - or both?? Is there room for mainstream porn studios to be a part of this new age of self-produced porn? And: Why do cat people so often have multiple cats?

    Kira Noir: Pornhub's Newest Brand Ambassador!

    Kira Noir: Pornhub's Newest Brand Ambassador!

    It's my honor to welcome Kira Noir to the team as Pornhub's newest brand ambassador! What does that even mean, what does a brand ambassador do? Is there ever a point in porn where we feel like we've "made it?" What is the perfect amount of fame? If we could see any celebrity's penis or vagina, who we would choose? Are things in porn very different now, compared to 10 years ago? Is "tokenization" good or bad? Why are there so few lesbians in porn? Also, is how much of a nerd IS Kira after all?

Asa is intelligent and wants to fight against sexism, negative body image, racism, homophobia, and misogyny. On that front, more power to her. My issue is the medium of her profession, pornography, capitalizes on the exacerbation of those ills. Young, well-shaped pale-skinned women undergoing various forms of debasement is the usual fare. It’s taken for granted that porn is a good thing and that men having consensual sex with their step daughters is actually not as bad as it sounds. It was consensual and he was hot, after all. Look, everyone’s entitled to their opinion but it seems counterproductive to want to fight for equal rights but be in a professional that simulates (or perhaps actually) the subjugation of those rights.

Take a shot every time you hear Asa say “for sure” or “mmhhmm” on any episode of this podcast.. 🥃Good times
