Porn Stars, Max Hardcore Protest Scumbag Awards!

I've never relished the prospect of encountering Max Hardcore in a dark alley, but now I'm afraid I'll run into him at next year's AVN awards and wind up with a fist up my butt or face full of piss. Turns out he not only read my denunciation of him as a scumbag, but posted a response, too. But before we get to that, I'd like to respond to a comment by Julie Knight, who I'm afraid misunderstood why I reviewed a scene of hers in the context of my series on porn's scumbags. She writes, "I guess I should take being called a scum bag as a compliment, but for some reason I find it insulting." Julie, please allow me to explain. The title of the movie your scene appears in--Scum Bags--is what inspired my last two posts in the first place. I chose to write about the movie because you were in it, and as it turns out, your scene was the perfect antidote to all the scumbaggery, what with your (for lack of a better word) empowering use of the vibrator, and clearly articulated pleasure. I meant no disrespect, my reference to your "ravenous cock hunger" notwithstanding.

Julie shamed me. Max Hardcore cracked me up:

How dare you call me a Rebulican! Why do I do it? Because the girls I shoot et me do it, that's why. So I take it as far as I can, see what they can take, and how willing they are to be used as fuck-dolls. As long as no one gets hurt of course. Never fails to amaze me.

I won't deny that calling someone a Republican is hitting below the belt. But where else does one go after Max? What's interesting here is how, having plucked that initial note of indignance, Max allows the dissonance of his own hubris ("fuck-dolls") to overwhelm his weakly reflexive defense. The best has to be the coda ("Never fails to amaze me"), where he disavows all agency, as if, wide-eyed and innocent, he just watches women fall apart before the camera. His movies, wearying as they are, never fail to bore me.

Upcoming Events

Not to single out Max. Reader Mike South suggested another scumbag worth calling out: Don't forget the lump of human shit who calls himself Khan Tusion Posted by: Mike South at January 25, 2006 09:24 PM

Now, South himself's no saint. In fact, judging by his blog, he's as much of a bore as Max. I've read one post, which closed with this threadbare slur:

Girls...you piss me the fuck off. You do stupid shit and manage to get away with it. You can be the most annoying idiots in the world. Your sense of logic and common sense seems to be a rare gift rather than a common trait. And yet I'm uncontrollably attracted to you. And that's quite possibly the most frustrating thing of all.

Mike--Fred Durst called. He wants his dumbshit back.

Anyway, Khan Tusion, whose name is a Limp Bizkit-esque spelling of the word for "bruise" (not to mention a neat reference to Genghis), can be found online by searching for Meat Holes and Piss Mops. A self-proclaimed misogynist, he's a little guy with ropy muscles, receding hair, and a nasty mustache whose express purpose is to reduce women to tears. An apologist at AVN interviewed him, and guess what? Despite his hatred of women, he's got female friends--at least "20 or 30"! (I wonder--are any of them black?) I don't have it in me right now to describe his work in detail, but suffice it to say, there's nothing original in his approach. Let's leave it at this: When AVN asks, "Do you enjoy beating up women?" he responds, "Yes I do. Who wouldn't, for Godsake. It's an e-ticket, baby." I have no idea what e-tickets have to do with any of this, but shame on him for tainting their efficiency and convenience.

One final note on those other scumbags, the ones we use to prevent pregnancy and infection. Responding to my post Return of the Anal Cream Pie!, lovely starlet Kapri Styles had this to say: As for the comment directed too the movie let off in me by black ice, I would have too say starring in the movie was off freewill it was my decsion and I'm of age just because internals doesn't get the cum out of u it does for others!!!!

A reader contributed this well-written, if vitriolic, opinion: You nosebleeds make me vomit! Plenty of us punters pay good money to live vicariously through gonzo arsefucking sans rubber. If the talent get regular tests then wheres the harm? Even if the odd ' star' dies of AIDs so Hollywood takes its toll as well for our entertainment needs. ( Miss you Brandon Lee ) Anal cream pies are art and free speech and fun and well...if you don't like them why don't you just fuck off to North Korea! Fucking Nanny statists! God damn CALOSHA too! I hope the next lot of health records you snatch are all double encrypted. You fascists make me sick. All power to the pie! Posted by: professor-rat at January 19, 2006 10:22 AM

Points taken. Just not up the butt.
