I was in the make up trailer on day 10 of 11 for Adam and Eve’s biggest movie of the year, Rawhide 2. Thirty minutes ago I stepped in to touch up and change outfits for my final sex scene of the movie, and of course, being a porn chick, I had to check my phone. Twitter. Voicemail. Texts. In that order. Always.
Twitter won’t download because we’re in the middle of nowhere. I have no new voicemails probably for the same reason. Texts are hardy though. They come through. One did, anyway. It was short and sweet but made me forget about the cookie in my hand and the fact that they were going to make me get naked again in the cold.
“call me hiv pos”
In porn that’s a hard message to misinterpret. I called, and sure enough I’d read it right. The details were vague beyond the rumors that a newer performer in the industry had tested positive and done a scene last week. No one knew her name or where she’d worked. Meanwhile our crew was lit and set, ready and waiting alongside Moe the PA, who will baby wipe you but won’t pull sponges out. Poor Moe. There would be no baby wiping of strange asses for him today. I went to the Production Manager who sounded the alarm all the way up the ladder to Adam and Eve headquarters back in North Carolina while verifying the story on another other cell phone. Meanwhile, my partner in crime for the day slammed his foot down and said there was no way in hell he was doing a scene until they had all the information. He did it with flair. We all heart Evan Stone.
So. This is how the industry works in real life, behind the scenes, away from the BTS cameras. We’ll be picking up today’s scene towards the end of the month with Adam and Eve’s blessing and a new location that wasn’t too terribly established in the movie already. Now I’m sitting here fielding calls from people who are still finding out and calling to warn me not to shoot, and other people on set are calling other sets, their friends and husbands and wives and flings, and it’s amazing how fast information travels in this industry, and how we’re all not more than 2 degrees of sexual separation from Evan Stone.
P.S. I had to post this picture of young Evan Stone because it is amazing:
(and here’s a picture of me with Evan that is already live on ClubKayden (!!))
