Good morning,

Just glanced at my last post from last night and suddenly recalled a video that Carolyn Monroe and I shot for legendary porn director Jim Holliday. He named it Floss in reference to the microscopic, white G-string bikinis we wore in the film. Carolyn and I appear in Scene 9 and, if memory serves me, Allysin Chaines plundered us both anally.

Big White Couch

Good afternoon,

Long-time custom video aficionado CD e-mailed me overnight about my last post, commenting that the behemoth white couch looked wildly out of place inside custom video cameraman Mike Raffone‘s living room. During the decades I shot with Mike I did 90% of my custom videos in front of or atop Mike’s signature teal green sofa. As I explained in my message to CD there was, however, a frame of time in which Mike temporarily replaced the teal green sofa with a big white couch:

“The big white couch surfaced at some point during the Raffone era. Mike had an old friend from the East Coast who manufactured high-end furniture. Think someone commissioned that couch and either never picked it up or never paid for it. Anyways, old friend gave it to Mike who became progressively fearful about “fluids” landing on it. In the beginning he used a reasonable amount of couch coverings but then he just went nuts, bedecking the thing with a dozen oddly mismatched pieces of fabric. It probably appeared in a few of your videos. Eventually Mike could take the stress no longer and brought the teal sofa back. Think he may have sold the white couch. It was actually really nice. Believe it was made of white linen, the kind of piece someone puts in a ‘show’ living room rather than a functional living room, if you know what I mean.”

Lovely Carolyn Monroe and I are gracing the white couch (top pic) in Beautiful, Blonde Blackmail. Summer Cummings is tormenting me in front of the much more familiar teal green sofa during the shooting of Origins of Power Girl (bottom pic.)

P.S. The teal green sofa belongs in a museum of pornographic history. Even a young Jenna Jameson cavorted atop it. Museum curators could create a display where a black UV light perpetually shines upon the fabric..  lol 😉

Cory Lane

I first met Cory Lane on the set of Penthouse: On Campus which we shot back in, dare I say, 1993 (!)   That’s me doing the splits on the cover of the video and that might be Cory in the yellow cheerleader outfit but I can’t tell for sure.  Cory had true beauty, confidence and kindness, sort of like a Carolyn Monroe with less of a wild streak (at least on film.) Cory, to my knowledge, only did softcore work. She shot with Bob Walenski (BobsVideos.com) a lot and I believe that he likely took the above pic of Cory smoking.  Click here for the full gallery. Cory vanished off the scene long ago. What a beautiful woman, inside and out. Never knew her well but remember her fondly.

By the way, I guess Penthouse: On Campus has turned into a bit of a collector’s item. Amazon is charging $99 for the DVD! I remember ordering boxes of VHS tapes of Penthouse: On Campus so I could sell them while dancing and also send copies to members of my mail order fan club.

Smoking

jewell

Jewell is lying on my bed having a cigarette right now. She says hello. Just kidding. Recently I found a treasure trove of material at the FetishNetwork.com family of sites which features a ton of models from the magical late ’90s to perhaps 2004 era.  Many of them are smoking. I’ve unearthed galleries of Zora, Carolyn, Mackenzie and a lot of other women who have long since disappeared. Looks to me like Fetish Network probably bought or licensed the rights to content from various bondage, glamour, femdom, BDSM producers. I suspect that Bob Walenski of Bob’s Videos shot most of the smoking material. He used to try to get me to smoke but I don’t know how to smoke.  It doesn’t look very sexy to have someone clutching a cigarette like a joint and coughing all over the place.

Yesterday I rose early to see the Blood Moon. Something told me to drive to Sunset Beach even though I never go there. Driving, driving, driving til I finally pulled off the road and went to a 24-hour donut shop on Pacific Coast Highway. They had outdoor tables which provided perfect viewing for the lunar eclipse. I sat there in awe with my coffee and croissant until I felt a bystander approaching. “Do you mind if I smoke next to you?” he asked. Was this guy kidding?  The whole city was empty, streets barren and he is choosing this exact spot to smoke? Of course I told him it was fine and he proceeded to chain-smoke Marlboros until he decided I was imperturbable. Finally he left in search of a more gratifying target 😉  To be fair he may just have been a lonely person in search of conversation but his decision to interject cigarettes into the equation did not work in his favor.

Cigarettes do not bother me too much but I can easily live without the smoke. They do, however, look pretty cool on film, sorta Jean Harlow-esque.

Carolyn Monroe – 100% American

caro

Just found these vid clips of Carolyn at ScoreVideos.com (click here for my own Score Mag memories):

“Carolyn Monroe runs a motorcycle repair shop in this SCORE Classic from Hard SCORE2. When she’s not repairing bikes, she’s servicing the guys who bring them in. She has to deal with a complaining customer so she handles him in the best possible way. That is, by fucking his brains out. Any good mechanic will tell you that lubrication is crucial so after getting Carolyn lubed up, this sleazy rider wants to ride her heinie-highway. Who does not love an attractive babe with double-Ds who smiles with a crankshaft grinding in her ass? Her big radials drain his pan of man-oil and peace is restored. Carolyn Monroe has a long career in adult movies. She started in 1991 and moved to Europe in 1994 after marrying an Italian porn producer. In Europe she starred in many more porn movies, often specializing in kick-ass anal and she also directed several films. Carolyn made so many Euro porn films in the 1990s that Americans unfamiliar with her think she is a European porn star but she is 100% American-made in Indiana. Click here for video.”

Carolyn Bound

Buxom_Bondage_Club

 

Good evening,

Recently I was writing about lovely Carolyn Monroe and mentioned that she did a lot of really great bondage work. The box cover above features Carolyn, Cory Lane, and me : Busty, Blonde Paradise.. lol  Only did a cursory search on the Internet but this video, Buxom Bondage Club, seems elusive. Best chance of finding it will likely be at the website of the venerable company which produced it, Harmony Concepts. Both Carolyn and I did a lot of shoots for them over the years. I’m glad to see Harmony Concepts’ presence on the web because they seemed to fade away about 8 or 9 years ago. They have bondage content dating back to the 1960s, I believe.

Beautiful, Blonde Blackmail

TD_CM_1

Good afternoon,

I found a couple of custom Carolyn Monroe videos from the Mike Raffone era! Put one up in my Clips4Sale store and will activate the other later today. I entitled them Beautiful, Blonde Blackmail – Parts 1 & 2 since Carolyn and I are using all of our sexy wiles to put a high-ranking politician in a compromising position. His name was Anthony Weiner. Just kidding.

Mingori, I saw your comment on the Jewell/Carolyn fight which I mentioned in my last post. Their friendship did seem to end abruptly but I should probably avoid speculation as to why 😉 I know that they had been doing a number of bondage shoots together around that time. Unbeknownst to many Carolyn was a phenomenal bondage model. She had a lot of endurance and could withstand demanding ties that few others could handle. I think she probably would have appeared in more of Jewell’s productions if they hadn’t had some sort of falling out.

Carolyn and I did continue to shoot frequently: Busty Beauties, Big Boob Heaven, Sorority Sex Kittens 6, Aces in the Holes, and many more. Around 2005 or so she missed a shoot with me for Steel Kittens – (funny.. just checked their site and Carolyn is on the front page right now) – and then missed another shoot for a different company that I can’t recall. I knew she was having problems but I did not know how I could help. During our very last shoot together we met at Mike Raffone’s apartment and did some catfight photos. She seemed overwrought and she and Mike were not getting along particularly well. After that we lost contact. I heard, although it was never substantiated, that she moved back to her home state of Indiana, settled down, and had a baby.

I will always remember Carolyn as classy and beautiful, graceful and poised in ways that most other adult actresses could never equal. Many of her fans have told me that they regard her in the same way. Sounds corny but she touched a lot of people through porn. I would love to see her again someday. Mainly, though, I just hope that she has found happiness.

Carolyn Monroe

Good evening,

A day or so ago “pw” posted a comment inquiring about my recollections of Carolyn Monroe. She and I first met on the set of Sorority Sex Kittens 5 in 2000. You can see us both – along with my dear, departed friend Jim Holliday – on the back portion of the above box cover. On that very same day, whilst waiting to perform in my 10-girl (or was it 12?) orgy scene – I received a phone call from Ken Kirk of Napali Video. He wanted to book both Carolyn and me for the aptly entitled video Duel of the Busty Blondes. She and I got to know each other much better during the second shoot and began to frequently request one another for girl-girl scenes and refer each other for work. Carolyn had recently returned to the United States from Europe with her husband, an Italian film director. In fact, he directed us in our scene for The Best Night of My Life. Shortly after that he and Carolyn separated. I think she was going through a very rough time. By coincidence she moved into a Van Nuys apartment building which claimed bondage legend Jewell Marceau, custom video cameraman Rick Scott of RBP Studios, bondage director Ted Paramour, and 1970s pornstar Jesse Adams as residents. Carolyn and Jewell became friends but that didn’t last long. They had some type of disagreement which, to my knowledge, never got resolved. Eventually everyone moved out of that building other than possibly Jesse Adams. A number of years passed and Carolyn and I continued to do a lot of shooting together, including Voluptuous #2, Floss, and Too Many Blonde Moments.

Aside from performing for the large porn companies we also did a lot of joint custom videos during the Mike Raffone era. Mention of that subject makes me want to go find some of those videos right now.. I shall return..

Misty Vonage

misty

Good morning,

I was writing about my friend Zora Banx last night and noticed that “pw” inquired about Carolyn Monroe in one of the comment fields. Looks like I will be devoting the day to busty blondes. Thought I would mention Misty Vonage too. She and I were both posing for men’s magazines in the 1990s and then doing porn in more recent years. I would almost have to assume that she devoted some time to the strip club scene as well. That’s what almost all adult starlets were doing in the 90s. In fact, the reason to pose for magazines/perform in videos was less for the immediate money than for the opportunity to enter the feature dance circuit. Misty came from New Jersey, I from California. Maybe that is part of the reason why we never crossed paths. Not sure if she is still actively shooting videos but I did hear a rumor that she retired from porn to work in the fitness industry. Maybe she will resurface someday and we can shoot a scene together. Check Misty out in her soccer mom phase.

XO Tanya
