Bonnie Rotten Directs First Movie for Mental Beauty

VENICE, Calif.—Bonnie Rotten is deep into directing her first-ever movie and last week managed an insane day, shooting three scenes in a day that lasted more than 15 hours.

“We started at 7:30 in the morning ended at 1 am,” said AVN's reigning Performer of the Year. “All of the girls were wonderful. We did a pairing of dom sub with more experienced girls and newer, more innocent girls. The beginning of each scene had a bondage set up where we put each girl through a couple intense bondage scenarios then moved them into dominant g/g sex. The scenes are twisted, but shot so beautifully!”

Rotten said the pairings were “pretty perfect,” and that each scene in the movie has a completely different setting and was done differently. Alex Ladd is her director of photography for the project. Girlfriends Films will release the movie in April. The untitiled feature is the debut film for Rotten's new production company, Mental Beauty.

In other Rotten news, the star can be seen in Performers of the Year 2014 (Elegant Angel), which hit #1 on the AVN Retail Buzz chart last week. Also, the new Rambone XXX has received a “Rock Solid 5 Out Of 5 Hard Ons” review from Bill the Hobbyist at “Fucking great,” he writes of Bonnie’s main scene in the movie, “a powerful scene and a strong potential for ‘scene of the year.”
