After a month off, I had the pleasure of interviewing Coyote Days, producer for Good Releasing, for my Ethical Pornographer column. I also got to meet the lovely lady in person at a couple of Good Vibrations‘ events which I wrote about for MySexProfessor: Lesbo Retro and IXFF (amazing videos included).
Here’s a snippet of the interview:
GJ: How is Good Releasing different from other porn production companies out there, both mainstream and indie?
CD: Our films are incredibly authentic. This is the sex people are having and in many films they are having it not only how but with who they want. Our films vary – from Queer DIY to high art visionary erotic explorations – and there is an range of directors, models and visions. The one commonality is that the directors and stars of each are showing their authentic sexual selves. There’s exploration of vision and some incredibly authentic chemistry-filled sex. We work with incredible directors and models – some who this is their first/only time on camera and some who shoot every week or more. All this combined creates a body of work expressing authentic sexuality and eroticism that speak to a variety of communities in a very real way.
I think there is a great synergy between what good releasing is doing and what some other production companies are doing. Combined we are offering new genres and new categories of porn which is super exciting to me both as a pornographer, as a queer and as a feminist.

Wow, so apparently I’ve been neglecting my blog. That’s sad. I try hard and do so well for awhile, posting regularly – usually several times per week. But life ebbs and flows and so does blog writing.
I find it especially difficult to keep up with the blog when there are lots of new things going on in my life. It takes awhile to recapture the balance of it all. Working for MyPleasure, writing for MySexProfessor and PopMyCherryReview, moving and settling into my new home in the Bay Area, and soon writing even more. It can be difficult to constantly come up with original content especially when you never intended to be a writer. Life is kind of funny like that. Speaking of writing, did you see that one of my posts from MySexProfessor was featured on Jezebel? That was pretty exciting.
There’s lots of fun things coming up and I have yet to decide whether or not I will write about them – I guess we shall see after they happen. First, I will be attending two days of IXFF: I will be at Lesbo Retro on the 22nd and the Competition and after party (and maybe pre-party) on the 23rd. If you see me say hi. I’m especially excited about this because Coyote Days, producer at Good Releasing, will be there and she said she’s excited to meet me. The goal of having awesome sex positive friends in the community is coming together. Did I mention that I met Madison Young at her gallery recently? Unfortunately, I’m really easily start struck and tend to just be shy and a bit nerdy when in the presence of awesomeness.
Then on the 26th there’s Folsom Street Fair which the wife and I will be attending. I’ve never been to anything like it since I’m from the midwest and all. I’m sure I will be shocked, surprised, turned on, and totally smitten.
On October 1st I will be at the NYC Sex Bloggers Calendar release party representing MyPleasure. This will be the first time a company I work for is sending me somewhere. It’s pretty cool and I hope to meet lots of fun people. And of course if you see me, please say hi. I tend to be a bit shy.
