Chick Flicks

Gram Ponante
Whenever I hear the words "erotica for women, by women" I imagine the output of various San Francisco and Austin outlets featuring buzzcut ladies named Mo with music by their friends' bands. The goings-on on their patchoulli-scented futons don't touch me in that special place, but I'm sure they cock (sorry) a pierced eyebrow at my choices in pornography as well. Lately, for example, I've been enjoying Skeerotica, in which couples shove Skee-balls into each other at arcades in Old Orchard Beach, Maine. Anyway, Kelly Holland (aka Toni English, who directed Naked Hollywood with Asia Carrere, pictured) of Playgirl TV created Chick Media, a company that produces erotica for women, by women. One of their efforts is called My Sex Therapist. I'd link to it but the site isn't up yet. Here's what the press release has to say: "Shooting will take place on location around Los Angeles. This film will feature Adult film actresses Alexis Malone, Lola, Chanel Chavez, Sahara Knight and Azalea and Marcos Leon, Ross Severance, Tyler Knight, Randy Spears, Kris Knight and Jack Venice." I am no expert on pornography (thank the Bush administration for creating an atmosphere in which people unqualified to do things make their living at it) but I believe that half of those "actresses" listed in the press releases are actually men. Is this what Chick Media means by "by women"? I am thoroughly disheartened. Once again, the only Chick I can trust is a chick named Jack.
