Susannah Breslin has an essay up today about the online life of adult film performer Ashley Blue, whose very interesting blog seems to document a sort of transition from working in an extreme genre of hardcore porn to whatever lies beyond that. Snip:
Ashley Blue's blog is like no other. On it, Blue--whose real name is Oriana Small--reveals the real girl behind the porn star. Blue is--or at least was--a porn star like no other. She has starred in some of the most extreme porn movies ever made. According to IMDB, she has appeared in over 200 adult videos, among them: "Ashley Blue AKA Filthy Whore," "American Bukkake 26," and "Gag Factor 15." Take "American Bukkake 26," for example, in which Blue fed fried cum to a bukkake girl. ("It was amazing," she later noted.) Her performances have not gone unnoticed. Last year, "Gag Factor 15," in which Blue reenacts a scene out of Abu Ghraib, was listed in an 18-count federal obscenity indictment. Her blog, though, shows another side of the sex star. There, in a stream-of-consciousness assemblage of words and pictures that's part tumblelog, part haiku, and part Molly Bloom's monologue, Blue--that is, Small--exposes the woman behind the sex with unrivaled intensity. This is a blog that stars the usual suspects found on confessional blogs--the boyfriend (erotic photographer Dave Naz), the new puppy, the night out on the town. Blue takes blogging to a whole new level.
