I spoke with Digital Playground’s contract director Robby D. He didn’t want to do it, because he’s been hurt before, but my fierce persuasive powers plus the fact that his studio pays me $1 million every time I mention it in my other job as vice president of the United States made him come around to my way of thinking.

Digital Playground has just released the trailerfor Jack’s Teen America #5, starring Teagan Presley, Devon, Dascha, Jayna Oso, and other people.

I was called by Robby D.’s handler, who guided the interview for a few questions. Finally, the director was reassured I wasn’t going to start asking what he wanted to be when he grew up or what he thought about the Mafia or the state of Israel. (For the record, D. loves Israel.)

GP: Tell me about Jack’s Teen America #5

RD: Jack’s adventures are part of a series that started with Jack’s Playground. Jack’s this slacker guy who doesn’t have a job in the first series, and then by Jack’s Teen America his parents have thrown him out and made him get a job as a documentary filmmaker.

Someone who briefly takes over my mind: I haven’t seen the movie because I don’t watch porn and I find all pornography detestable. That is why I want to destroy the industry from within.

RD: I want to talk to Gram again. Where is Gram?

GP: I regret that I haven’t seen the movies. Does Jack play the straight guy? Do things just happen to him?

RD: He sort of has a running commentary on what’s going on.

D. Has made about 60 gonzos and nine features with Digital Playground in the past three years. Prior to that he worked with Vivid. The Jack movies are gonzos, but D. says that the character was profiled before the series began so Jack had a backstory.

“We asked where he came from, why he did what he did, where he got his money if his parents cut him off,” he said. “It gives the gonzo just enough sense to be funny.”

Maybe because Robby D. has squeezed out so many movies and seen the same locations again and again (it’s not much of an exaggeration to say that the same few houses are used by every company in the Valley), and maybe because people like me comment on the fact that there seems to be a lot of sex concentrated in a few addresses (porn fans worldwide have seen Gram Ponante Towers’ twin Van de Graaff generators in over 1400 titles, from 1984’s Anal Load Lee and the Cum-Gobblin’ Quahogs to this month’s Piss Congenitally 2), he has incorporated the sparse location pickings into the story.

“A lot of locations aren’t available to adult,” he said. “So we had to guerilla a lot of things and try to reason with the difficulties. Finally, though, we just called the porn houses Jack’s Teen America Corporate Housing.”

The next Jack series will be subtitled My First Porn.
