Battleground Zero

Battleground Zero

(Most Americans will recognize a reference to the old Dukes of Hazzard TV show in the description of this video. Not sure if Dukes of Hazzard enjoyed any popularity outside of the US. Just imagine if someone tried to put a TV series like that on the air today – two redneck white boys wreaking havoc in their vehicle with racially charged logo. Rest assured that Lesbia AKA Stacey Cash thoroughly kicks my ass during our interracial confrontation.)

Southern superheroine Miss Confederate embarks on a mission to crush the tough, urban street fighter known as Lesbia (played by Stacey Cash.) Within the spartan confines of the General Lee, a bright orange Dodge Charger adorned with her trademark battle flag insignia, Miss Confederate prowls the back alleys of Los Angeles. At last she ascertains the whereabouts of Lesbia’s hideout. Alighting from her ride Miss Confederate flexes the muscles of her upper body, nearly causing gigantic breasts to burst through the seams of her tightly laced supersuit. This shameless display of white moral power creates a dynamic wave of reaction in the densely populated neighborhood. Miss Confederate bolts up ten flights of an exterior fire escape to confront Lesbia within the most sacrosanct region of Lesbia’s home turf..

Stacey Cash and Tanya Danielle star in Battleground Zero, an interracial superheroine sexfight featuring catfighting, lesbian domination, verbal abuse, and forced orgasm. This is a vintage, softcore video shot by LA custom video pioneer Mike Raffone.

Cherokee

deepinsidecherokee

Petite, raven-haired Cherokee and I first met on the video set of a 2002 production for Adam & Eve Studios (pics second row from top). She and I did a crazy 4-girl orgy with Kim Chambers and Felix Vicious. I think the scene starts as a catfight and evolves into a sexfest with very large dildos.  Well-known female director Toni English filmed the footage at actress/producer Skye Blue’s now defunct Canoga Park, California studio. On that day Cherokee seemed very enthused about her new porn career and also gushed about her boyfriend back home, possibly in Tennessee or Kentucky. She radiated happiness and exuberant energy. In the coming years Cherokee and I shot together often, frequently for large XXX production companies. As time passed she grew quieter and more withdrawn. Even though she smiled with warmth and always had a great attitude I could sense some type of sadness beneath the surface.

Cherokee established an official website which I used to glance at from time to time. On one occasion she described her frustration with a rental car clerk who tried to make arrangements for paid sex when she was picking up a vehicle. I could relate to her anger. Fans posted supportive comments in response to her words. Eventually Cherokee’s website vanished and, shortly afterward, she disappeared too. Long ago I devoted a blog to her and you can see in the comment fields where fans express puzzlement and sadness at her abrupt, unexplained departure.

On FreeOnes.com someone describes Cherokee as “underrated”. I agree with that. Throughout her prolific career she always remained beautiful, physically fit, intensely sexual, and very sweet – qualities which put her head and shoulders above most of the talent in the industry. Not sure why she failed (through no fault of her own) to garner quite as much recognition as she deserved. Even her Star Page at HotMovies.com seems oddly flat, kind of like someone wrote it at 4:58pm with the intention of leaving the office by 5pm.

I saw Cherokee for the last time during the 2005 shooting of Lesbian Milfs. In keeping with our shared history we had a wild catfight which lead into a passionate sexcapade. On that date I had filmed three different scenes. Cherokee came for the final one. The producer and I watched her drive away in a new SUV after we finished the video. “That car is the first thing that she ever bought for herself.” I remember him commenting. The resignation in his voice conveyed the sense that she deserved better circumstances than life had dealt her. That moment in the moonlight made a distinct impression on me. It seems very vivid even now.

This may sound silly but Cherokee lingers in my mind as sort of a female warrior figure. Even through difficulties she always retained her beauty, her kindness, and a positive outlook. The adult industry breaks a lot of women – they grow bitter, disillusioned, and angry – but Cherokee had some type of profound inner strength which enabled her to keep her dignity and self-respect. I hope that she is well.

Earlier this morning I added Deep Inside Cherokee (bottom pic) to TanyaTV.com.  Infamous custom video pioneer Mike Raffone shot this exclusive footage in July 2004. Longtime custom video fans will recognize his signature teal green couch in the background 😉

What happened to vintage superheroine Megablonde? She materialized sometime during the last millennium and then vanished into the ether.  Fueled by milk and zeal for justice she single-handedly apprehended legions of criminals and made the world a safer place.  Will she ever reappear? Enjoy this classic Megablonde footage for a limited time inside my Diamond Club Members’ Area. I rotate material in and out of the Diamond Club on a weekly basis.

Barefoot Dancing

TD_barefoot

Barefoot Dancing

Dancing, sparkling, glittering, dazzling.. LA custom video pioneer Mike Raffone captures a young Tanya Danielle at the pinnacle of her striptease career. Bedecked in rhinestone apparel Tanya cavorts across the industrial carpet in Mike’s Sherman Oaks apartment, probably looking for a pole that she never finds. 1980s glam metal emanates from a tin can – or its very close equivalent – but Tanya seems not to notice the lack of production values. She eyeballs you through the camera lens as if you, the high roller at the strip club, hold the key to her very salvation..

Tanya Danielle stars in Barefoot Dancing, a vintage striptease/masturbation video from the 1990s.

Hotel Management

Hotel Management

I am busily perusing old content tonight. Hotel Management (top pic) is just as funny as Hotel Catfight in its own unintentional way. In the early part of Hotel Management I cannot keep a straight face as cameraman Mike Raffone addresses me from behind the camera. When he begins his tirade of insults I just start laughing. He is playing the role of an irascible, unsatisfied hotel guest. Have you ever wondered about the legendary Mike Raffone? I have written about him frequently and still have only barely scratched the surface. Experience Mike for yourself in Hotel Management where he provides a very rare speaking performance. During our years together (filming custom requests) Mike functioned in a strictly behind-the-scenes capacity. Heard he later started a line of POV handjob videos in which he starred as male talent. Can’t say I blame him.

Not sure what year Mike and I shot Hotel Management but I am wearing the same sundress that also appears in a 1995 Gallery magazine layout (bottom pics.) Presumably I shot the video not long afterward.

Big White Couch

white

teal

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.)

XO Tanya

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 😉

Naked Maid – $50 an Hour!

maid

Naked Maid – $50 an Hour!

“Naked Maids – $50 an hour!” the garish sign practically screams. You ponder the advertisement for weeks before finally calling the phone number. ” .. um.. what exactly do I get for $50?” you ask the woman who answers the phone. “You get your house cleaned, sir.” she replies in a flat, inflectionless tone of voice. “May I book a maid for half an hour?” you inquire hopefully, almost embarrassed to be asking. She takes your credit card number and makes the arrangements. On the appointed day a buxom blonde in skimpy denim shorts arrives at your place. Your eyeballs practically boomerang from their sockets before coming to rest on the ample breasts which reside beneath her wafer-thin, white tank top..

Tanya Danielle stars in Naked Maid – $50 an Hour! She embarks on an orgy of housecleaning which encompasses all three pieces of furniture inside Mike Raffone’s living room. Barefoot and naked, Tanya takes her duties very seriously, even going so far as to remove all the cassette tapes from an end table and clean them one by one. Custom video pioneer Mike Raffone shot this seminal housecleaning footage in the late 1990s. Download Naked Maid – $50 an Hour! at Tanya’s Clips4Sale.com store tonight.

Supervillainess Mackenzie Mack

I just added a gallery of superheroine photos to my Diamond Club Members’ Area.  Mackenzie Mack plays the sexy supervillainess who defiles familiar, fallible Power Girl, dragging her through the trenches yet again. Custom video pioneer Mike Raffone shot the gallery in his living room (note teal couch in background) during a 2004 custom video shoot. I have not yet located the video but I will.

Mackenzie and I only worked together a few times. She was a lot of fun. Finding these old pics made me smile. You can see her personality shining through: mischievous, smart, and sexy. In addition to shooting I believe that she was dancing at one of the Spearmint Rhino clubs in Los Angeles around that time. Some women enter the adult industry, become dependent on the money, and then feel stuck, unable to move to a different line of work where they will earn equivalent pay. My impression of Mackenzie was that she was trying out XXX entertainment just for fun. She had previously worked in a cosmetic surgeon’s office and I had the inkling that she may return to that at some point. Eventually she did vanish. I don’t see any trace of her on the Internet after 2007 or so. Think she set her own limitations (only accepting girl-girl and solo jobs), worked for 2-3 years, and simply moved on.

Join my Diamond Club to view the entire gallery of Mackenzie and me now!

Mackenzie Mack

DSC00033_pp_pp

Remember a few weeks ago when I mentioned Mackenzie Mack? I intended to write more about her but got distracted by Carolyn, Zora, Misty, et al.  This morning I found some of Mackenzie’s photos and am editing them right now. Obviously the above pic dates back to the cameraman Mike Raffone era (note teal green couch in background.) Mackenzie and I shot it in 2004 during the filming of a custom superheroine video. I am actively looking for that particular video. Will be back with more about Mackenzie after I finish the photo gallery..

By the way, Amy Fisher and I appear to work on the same schedule. I arose here in Los Angeles right at the same time she began her show on the East Coast. Was posting pics of Goldie and Prinzzess when Amy popped up in the webcam banner to the left. I tuned into her show. She looks good. Yes, she is that Amy Fisher.

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.

XO Tanya

Carolyn Monroe

a26671_xlb

busty

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..

Sexual Therapy

boss

The admin area for my Clips4Sale store has gone down, temporarily inaccessible. I have an incorrect video description and title posted with my latest (vintage Mike Raffone era) video. Title should be “Sexual Therapy” and text should read:

You visit Dr. Danielle’s office hoping to revive your flagging interest in sex. She listens carefully to your symptoms, carefully scrutinizing every inch of your body with laserlike intensity. When you finish speaking she presents various pictures of attractive, semi-naked women. You offer little reaction and wonder if you have been watching too much porn for too long, thus desensitizing yourself. Dr. Danielle refutes this notion and pulls out some glossy nude photographs of herself. Your dick stirs visibly inside your pants. The doctor nods with satisfaction and begins playing erotic music. Slowly, seductively she peels off her sensible dress to reveal giant cans and a slim, toned physique. Now you have a raging hard-on. Dr. Danielle orders you to reveal your cock and start stroking it. Therapist and patient climax together. You feel a bit guilty about saturating her carpet with your sperm but she does not seem to mind. “Personalized entertainment.” she tells you. “You will retain full sexual function as long as you have access to personalized entertainment. Feel free to make an appointment anytime.. ” (Tanya Danielle stars in “Sex Therapy”, a masturbation encouragement video featuring highly skilled counselor, striptease, dancing, dirty talk, masturbation, and orgasm. Co-produced by CD.)

Will update tomorrow as soon as I can regain entry to admin area.

Good night!

Mike Raffone and the Porno Angels 2

Evidently all I have to do is invoke the name of Mike Raffone and the porno angels will come assist me. In my last post I mentioned my intention of writing more about Mackenzie Mack. She appeared in a lot of videos, produced by a large number of different companies, during the years which she remained active. The very first one I find features footage shot by none other than Mike Raffone himself. You can spot his omnipresent teal couch in the background even though he tried to spruce it up with some type of blanket.

More on Mackenzie to come..

Mike Raffone and the Porno Angels

DSC00054

How bizarre, how bizarre.. in my last post I made reference to Mike Raffone and a recently surfaced box of videos which contains nearly 2o years of footage that we shot together. I now possess the box. Because I was intending to write something about Mike I pulled a disc, completely at random, out of the aforementioned container. The disc bears only the cryptic notation: “TD 2005 In the rear”. I inserted it into my computer and the very video from my last post starts playing! What are the chances? That box holds hundreds of videos.  Puzzled by the insinuation of the disc’s label I watched a bit of the footage and then fast forwarded to the 20-minute mark where I see myself lubing up a huuuge dildo and putting it in my ass. I almost never do anal, especially with a toy that size. Hope I got paid a lot. This video really is a relic. Guess I will need to rewrite the video description.. and the title. How about Up Close and Anal instead of Up Close Invitational?

The disc also contains photos of me and Mackenzie Mack (in pic above.) You can see Mike’s omnipresent teal green couch looming in the background. That couch should reside in a museum. More on Mackenzie later.. I must update the text description and title I used to promote the (surprising!) anal video. Porno angels have rescued it from slipping into obscurity. I should get a medal for using a dildo that size in an anal scene. What was I thinking?

Watch Up Close and Anal for a limited time at my Diamond Club Members’ Area now! You will never see me plundering my derriere with a toy that size again..

Up Close Invitational

upclose

In the early 1990s model Tanya Danielle contacts cameraman Mike Raffone to see if he will cast her in some of the custom videos he films for private clients. Thus begins a long collaboration which spans nearly two decades. Eventually Mike and Tanya part ways. Most of their jointly produced footage disappears. Years pass. In 2012 a cardboard box containing hundreds of videos in obsolete media formats surfaces inside Mike’s closet. This collection of vintage pornography defies any attempt at classification. Here – in an unlabelled, undated selection from Mike’s box – we see Tanya modeling a luxurious black negligee. She slowly, seductively strips it away to reveal every millimeter of her succulent anatomy. Mike covers his subject with noteworthy precision, using an archaic zoom lens to show detail which could rival that of today’s high-definition cameras. A masturbation scene unfolds with remarkable clarity..

Tanya Danielle stars in Up Close Invitational, an especially in-depth exploration of striptease, masturbation, dirty talk, and dildo fucking. Watch Up Close Invitational for a limited time inside Tanya’s Diamond Club Members’ Area !
