Is There Any Difference Between Erotic Cinema, Sexy Reality TV Or Porn?

Before I was able to secure funding to write, produce, and direct indie feature films I started in reality programming. I created the America’s Wildest Bachelor Parties (AWBP) reality series. I enjoyed distribution success with it and was able to launch Slice of Americana Films. I consider myself a passionate screenwriter, producer, and director Shibuya Kaho . But I also like to create fun and sexy entertainment.

I have been working with the same editor, Tim Beachum aka The SEO Bully, for close to 7 years. In that time he and I both get approached from time to time by friends or friends of friends outside of the entertainment industry that want to get into the porn industry. The pitch usually is the same. They have access to hot looking talent, a sweet location, and money to budget the shoot.

I was in Virginia Beach at a bar with Tim we were having a few brews when the waitress kept looking at me kind of funny. A couple of rounds later she asked me, “If I was really a porn producer from California?” Tim started laughing. He knows I do not dig it when people get the wrong information. That is why he kept laughing.

I asked where she heard that, the owner of the place showed her trailers for America’s Wildest Bachelor Parties and Fantasy Striptease Private Shows I had produced. She had won a battle of the g-string contest on the beach recently and thought there was more money in adult entertainment. She got $500 for winning the contest and showing her entire self to a rowdy crowd.

Like a scene out of a bad movie, Tim introduces me to the owner, and decides to have a good laugh at my expense. The owner pitches me on producing a porno movie at a beach house he owns. I always try to be polite in these situations with a “thanks, but no thanks” type of response, especially when the buckets of ice beer, top-shelf shots, and food are on the house. I told him I did not do adult entertainment, not because any moral stand, it just wasn’t my thing.
