Porn Stars in Love

Seymore Butts and Mari Possa know how to make a relationship work

A secretary at a law firm is bored with her job. She answers an ad in the paper for an administrative position at an adult-film company called Seymore Butts Home Movies. Having only seen a handful of Vivid videos, she doesn't know much about porn, and she has never heard of Seymore Butts. She's interviewed by Mama Butts, mother of Seymore, and hired to be his assistant. For over a year, they work side by side without a flirtatious glance or romantic thought. Seymore's engagement to his fiancée ends, then he hits the dating market with dismal results. One day, he sees his assistant on a date with another guy and feels an unexpected pang of jealousy. He suddenly realizes that he's been looking for love everywhere while it was under his nose all along. He tells her how he feels; she reveals she's into him too. They get together. Oh, and the sex is amazing.

Sound like the predictable plot of a porno flick? Think again. This is the story of how Adam Glasser, a/k/a Seymore Butts, and starlet Mari Possa became a couple. While it's not based on a blue-movie script, it was captured on camera—in the second season of Family Business. This Showtime reality series (Fridays at 11 p.m.; new season begins January 30) follows the adventures of Adam's adult company, where his mother and cousin also work.

In November, I had the pleasure of joining Adam and Mari for a day of shopping in New York during their media tour. The first stop was Borders, where Adam disappeared to find something for Mari. As we stood among the new releases, I asked, "Have you read The Surrender?" The 27-year-old spunky brunette, originally from El Salvador, shook her head, two braids of brown hair poking out of a wool hat. "It's an anal-sex memoir. Should be right up your alley," I said. She picked it up, and at the same moment back came Adam with The Surrender in hand. We all laughed. Our retail journey continued, as she tried on expensive shoes and he cautioned, "Pace yourself, I am not buying you everything." Despite his warning, he managed to spend a thousand dollars at Coach on a hat, a purse, and a pair of furry pink boots she loved.

Although he comes off as a typical guy (albeit one with more money and even more charm), 40-year-old Adam is far from ordinary. Besides being a gonzo master, he has an uncanny ability to hook up with sexy women and turn them into huge porn stars. In 1994, two years into his career, a bubbly blonde named Shane became his girlfriend; they made fabulous videos together, and then she started her own company. Taylor Hayes took over as his muse, both on-screen and off, and went on to become a Vivid contract girl and an AVN Best Actress Award winner. His best-known collaborator was Alisha Klass, an explosive performer with girl-next-door giddiness who became one of his signature "Tushy Girls." All three women made AVN's Top 50 Porn Stars list, but to hear him tell it, he's an accidental Pygmalion: "The girls all came to me. If anything, I discouraged them, but they all wanted in, and I couldn't stop them."

The same is true of his current amour, with one significant exception: Mari wasn't into anal—which is an issue when your boyfriend is a buttfucking demigod. He began an intense period of "anal training" during which he had to "break her in," and he almost gave up hope. The results? "Now she wants anal sex every night. She's more anally accommodating than other girls I've dated, even Alisha," says Adam with a grin wider than any gaping orifice. Her side of the story? "I was interested, but didn't have a lot of experience, and didn't like it the first time. It hurt. It wasn't until about the 10th time that I enjoyed it and realized it truly is an acquired taste. Now I cannot live without it."

These two are sex-worker monogamous: They only sleep with other people when they are at work. There has been only one exception to this rule—a threesome they had with another girl. Mari admits she does get jealous, while Adam says he only gets "pissed off." But he gave his girl an unusual birthday present: a date with Julian, a hunky adult star that Adam knew she liked. How did they get around their rule? Adam filmed it, and Mari's romp with several female stars and the gifted stud became a scene in the video Anal Surprise Party.

Adam has had more success dating within the adult industry than outside it, but porn star pairings still have their challenges: "In this industry, performers are thrust together in very intimate situations, and they don't know how to process the feelings that come up. They fall in love, fall into relationships, when the only connection they have is a sexual one. Sex is important, but you need other things to make a relationship work." He loves that Mari has such a good heart, and she adores him for his intelligence and open-mindedness. Both are not shy about saying that the sex is out of this world, but that, too, takes effort. "Lots of porn star couples I know end up having more sex with other people than with each other," says Adam. "We have to make time for us to be intimate." They have sex at least once a day, which is a lot considering that one of them fucks, and the other watches people fuck, for a living.

After a break from shopping, the twosome arrived at the last stop on their Big Apple trip: a promotional signing at Virgin Megastore in Times Square, where Adam was giving away a DVD to anyone who could prove that he or she voted (it was Election Day). Seymore Butts videos were prominently displayed, and Tushy Girls Play Ball sat just one shelf away from March of the Wooden Soldiers, part of the store's Christmas display. Mari opened her winter coat to reveal a tiny pink-and-black bra-and-G-string set that matched her new pink boots perfectly. He winked at her as they picked up Sharpies and began greeting fans.
