Lexington Steele Discusses Mainstreaming of Adult on 'Baisden After Dark'

CANOGA PARK, Calif. – Mercenary Picture owner Lexington Steele discussed the mainstreaming of porn on TV One's late night talk show “Baisden After Dark.” The show is hosted by national radio personality Michael Baisden.

Steele's appearance centered on the growing acceptance of the adult industry in popular culture. Fellow performer Nikki Fairchild and Senior Pastor of the first African Village Church Ray Hagins also were on hand during the show.

“The show's approach to talking about the adult industry was refreshing,” said Steele, who has also appeared on Baisden's nationally syndicated radio show. “Michael didn't ambush us with anti-porn guests or paint the industry as unsavory or being full of social misfits. In fact, the pastor he had on stage with us, Ray Hagins, was very supportive of the role X-rated videos could play in relationships. Michael concentrated on why it was becoming a more acceptable part of society and did not judge the industry or the people who are part of it.”

The appearance on “Baisden After Dark” follows a string of mainstream appearances for Steele, including a role in two episodes of Showtime's “Weeds” and the use of Topco's Lexcalibur, a dildo molded after Steele, in HBO's “Entourage,” as well as the completion of his own pilots for a reality and talk show. Steele will also appear in an upcoming episode of FX's “Nip/Tuck.”
