LOS ANGELES—InsideAdult.com Radio, the inside-the-industry program on Vivid Radio on SiriusXM 102, will highlight the art of romance and romantic porn on its show Wednesday, January 22. The live, weekly show offers listeners a sexy and fun look at the adult industry from an insider’s point of view.
Inside Adult Radio co-hosts Veruca James and Paul Fishbein, president of Plausible Films, will speak live on air with this week’s featured guests, which include directors Jacky St. James and Eddie Powell, along with performers Penny Pax and India Summer. The guests will discuss the appeal of romantic porn and answer questions from fans.
“I’m seriously looking forward to having Jacky, Eddie, and the girls on our show,” said James. “Porn is more than hardcore gonzo and extreme sex – romantic scenes definitely have their place too, in a variety of storylines from drama to RomCom, and even branching into fetish and kink. It’s going to be a very sensual show, and everyone needs to listen and call in with their questions!”
Jacky St James, who directed Penny Pax in the title role for the 2014 AVN Award-winning Best BDSM Movie release, The Submission of Emma Marx (New Sensations Erotic Stories), stated, “Romance porn has evolved a lot from its resurgence a few years ago. It now goes a lot deeper than the simple ‘happily ever after’ storyline. It explores greater dynamics within relationships, and the content is hotter than ever before. We’re delighted to come on the show to share our experience with the genre and how we work to bring a new perspective to romantic adult entertainment.”
Emma Marx co-creator and co-director Eddie Powell added, “A lot of people question whether romance porn can sustain itself in the adult marketplace nowadays, and [adult production company] New Sensations has proven it absolutely can. The Submission of Emma Marx was one of our studio’s top sellers last year – it even outsold some of our top all-sex releases.”
New Sensations launched its Erotic Stories series with The Submission of Emma Marx in February 2013, offering darker, edgier fare among its romantic releases. The movie tells the tale of a beautiful, confident, well-adjusted woman (Penny Pax) who is unable to embrace modern-day romantic ideals. Feeling more and more like an outsider as she watches her sister Nadia (Riley Reid) get swept up into a whirlwind of wedding plans, Emma fears she is emotionally and sexually abnormal. A chance encounter with wealthy older man Mr. Fredericks (Richie Calhoun) opens her up to a contractual relationship, including erotic sex, role-play and BDSM, which allows her the opportunity to explore the freedom and total surrender stemming from the mental and physical aspects of the lifestyle.
AVN gave the award-winning title a AAAA 1/2 rating, writing, “The focus here, unlike much BDSM erotica, is not on the accouterments of the bondage play but on the perils of navigating the emotional currents of power, control, dominance, obedience and, ultimately, mutual trust. But as Emma discovers, the road to true submission turns out to be just as rocky as the road to true love… the final scene ratchets up the intensity as Emma gives herself completely to a session that includes blindfolds, candle wax and cuffs, all captured with beautiful lighting and graceful camerawork. It’s a finely crafted piece of moviemaking that more than lives up to the series name.”
“We’re thrilled to have Jacky. Eddie, Penny and India on our show,” said InsideAdult.com founder Paul Fishbein. “Romance and couples’ feature porn has always been a strong mainstay in adult entertainment and a popular genre over the decades. Feature releases are often the first exposure to porn for many consumers, through channels such as cable. Directors like Jacky and Eddie have taken the romantic approach to porn and made it their own, across multiple genres and niches. Movies like Emma Marx are a testament to their commitment to showcase adult situations, including fetish and kink, in a softer, more romantic light. We’re honored to have them in-studio at the heels of their recent successes.”
