I can’t speak for her, but we were all hanging out, joking around, and it was the three of us naked in bed—and Lindsay was half naked—and then she all of a sudden was like, “Could you guys put your clothes back on? I’m feeling really uncomfortable.” And then we were like, “Ugh, OK.” So we put our robes back on, but she was still lying on the bed topless, and we were like, “Well, what about you?” And she was like, “No! I can be naked, but you can’t be!” We were like, “All right … Whatever you need.” She needed people to home in on the fact that this is a big deal to her—showing her boobs and doing a sex scene—and people should respect that fact. But, it was in her mind because everyone else on set was like, “We’ve seen you in Playboy, we’ve seen crotch shots all over the Internet, so this is nothing new,” but to her, it was something different. It was an escalating event where she tried to make it a big deal—no one cared—she tried to make it a bigger deal—no one cared—so then she just went around the corner of the room. She said, “When Julia Roberts does topless scenes, she makes the whole crew shoot in their boxers! I want that!” And the whole crew just rolled their eyes and was like, “We’re not doing that. We’ll do that for fuckin’ Julia Roberts, but not you. Go find another crew; we’ll just leave.
We spoke with porn star James Deen on his “Canyons” experience.
Porn Star James Deen is none-too-happy with the measure requiring porn stars wear condoms.
We’re dealing with an 87 percent safety rate with a condom. You also have to remember, adult films are not real sex. It’s entertainment. So just because we’re engaging in physical sex doesn’t mean it is normal sex. We’re going to be—to be crude, you have women being pounded by large or above-average-size penises for a nonstandard amount of time. For hours. From anywhere from 30 minutes to up to three hours or more. So now you add latex into that, the ultimate probability of friction burn, vaginal and anal tears, and things like that. And when you’re dealing with something with an 87 percent safety rate, you’re going to now have a higher probability of transmitting any sort of STD or STI because you now have more issues in addition to that.
