Since I’m currently unemployed and the blog has been very, very boring, I thought that I’d recommend some light reading written by a friend of mine which I just know will make up for my general suckiness (no pun intended).
Carly Milne , who has link over there to the right, has written a book about her time working in porn. Carly was a publicist (which I didn’t even know pornos needed) and has some hilarious stories to tell. She’s fabulous, and we all need to work together so she can finally buy that 24 carat pool boy she’s always wanted.
Here’s the link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DCJZ4MU
My one foray into lighting for a porn was, well, interesting. It was well before I got into the union and couldn’t afford to be picky about jobs (“Porn set on an un-airconditioned stage in the Valley for not much more than gas money? Sure!”).
To be fair, I currently can’t be all that picky about jobs, but it’s totally not the same thing. At all.
I’m sure the plot (what there was of it) was the same as in any other porn and honestly all I remember was the broiling hot stage and one of the women telling us that one of her implants was leaking silicone into her body, but she couldn’t get them removed because then she wouldn’t work.
Also, in retrospect, the craft service table was unacceptably carb-laden.
You can buy the book for the low, low price of $2.99, or, if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can borrow it for free.
Either way, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
