Calico Rudasil is a feature columnist for Sssh.com, the award-winning porn site for women & couples. With over 18 years’ experience under her belt, writing about and for the adult entertainment industry, Calico qualifies as something of a Web Porn Dinosaur; similar to a tyrannosaurus, only with far more attractive arms and a less pronounced overbite.
During the GOP convention last week, Pornhub was happy to report that it experienced a massive surge in usage from within the Cleveland area during the Republican National Convention. The report has led to a predictable smattering of articles from outlets using the factoid as clickbait for readers who aren’t turned on by things like plagiarism, fearmongering, xenophobia or Scott Baio.
I’ll admit, I had to fight off the temptation to snicker and mutter something about the sexual hypocrisy of social conservatives before I could ask myself a salient question which really should be asked by every media outlet which repeats it: …. who really gives a shit?
This Is The Porn Industry We’re Talking About; ALL Stats Are Questionable
Back in the late 90s, the idea online porn was a legitimate “get rich quick” market was an exciting one to the media. Interviews with perceived market leaders began showing up from month to month in publications ranging from the Wall Street Journal to WIRED and all points in between.

A few years ago we read about Starbucks taking a stand against concerned crybabies who wanted them to filter internet access in their cafes. The coffee giant decided their patrons were free to do whatever they wanted on the internet so long as it wasn’t illegal, and parents were equally free to parent their own children.
It was a victory for everyone who likes to look at a dick or two with their morning cuppa.
Whether they were protecting people’s freedoms or just being too lazy to implement a nationwide policy, we appreciated Starbucks’ respect for our digital rights- at least up until right now.
Under pressure from anti-porn groups like Enough is Enough and the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, McDonald’s and Starbucks have agreed to filter pornography from the free Wi-Fi in all of their restaurants. The activist groups involved hope the move will help protect children and families from being exposed to sexual content and other cool things on the internet.
According to the National Center of Sexual Exploitation boring restaurants like Panera and Chick-fil-A already block porn on their Wi-Fi. Organizations like this consider the move by McDonald’s and Starbucks to be another victory in the fight against, uh, people seeing a sexual image when they don’t want to.

Sound & Color, that’s what I’m listening to right now. The song by Alabama Shakes, not the Band… Wait – I’m thinking of the band City & Colour, which is a totally different thing. Oh man, all this time I though Alabama Shakes had written a song with the same name as the band by that pretentious dude with the weird name. I was wrong, oh, so wrong.
Now that that’s settled, let’s get back to my point. Sound & Color, the song by Alabama Shakes (a great band if you should feel like checking it out), is a great backdrop for this Amber Flowers photoshoot.
The lyrics match the mood of this particular photo set and so does the vibe of the whole song.
They’re pretty, OKAY. The pictures. I like the colors and I like the boobies and that’s all I have to say about that. I’m not a damn wordsmith over here. I wish I was, but mostly all this is just filler. Filler because I gotta hit a word count, filler because y’all are bored and don’t know what else to do with your days, filler because we have to do something before we all die and turn into dust… hopefully, not starting the whole process over again.
Wow, not sure where that came from. It might have something to do with the fact that I just watched the season finale of Orange is the New Black, I’m hungry, and I have to poop. Pretty sure all the misery in the world can be explained by one or more of those things. THAT EXPLAINS ALL THE PROBLEMS. All. The. Problems.

Dyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyying! Ever have one of those days where all the little things go wrong? That’s what happened to me yesterday. I stepped on a nail, got bit by a fire ant, my bank account was frozen, ripped my pants, got home and realized that I didn’t have the key to open the trunk of my new (used) car. By the time I got home I was ready to lie down in bed and cry, which is pretty much what I did… except I replaced crying with sitting in front of a fan naked with the blinds closed to keep the humidity out.
If you ever have to face a shitty day like the one I just had, do what I do and break out Instagram and look at pictures of boobs. Boobs and cats. Maybe puppies. Actually, I recommend boobs and cats even when you’re having a good day. A good day can always get better is what I say. We’re not all out celebrating #yatchweek.

Samantha Saint had what I call the All-American introduction to porn, she started off doing glamour shots for Suze Randall and Holly Randall. Then for a while she tried her hand at solo scenes and girl/girl scenes. When that went well she graduate to a bigger payday with dick scenes. Samantha’s first girl/boy scene was for Twistys where she became Twistys treat of the month for February, 2011. In 2012, she signed an exclusive contract with Wicked, because she wanted to work for a company that would do a good job promoting her and she chose Wicked due to their condom-only policy.
From then on it was fame and more fame for Samantha Saint in the porn industry. People were putting her on “Top 10 Most Popular Current Female Porn Stars” and “100 Most Mind-Numbingly Hot Women of 2012“ lists left and right. She’s been nominated for so many awards, I’m not even going to start listing them here.
Samantha Saint isn’t officially retired, but she has considerably slowed down when it comes to shooting new scenes in the last couple years. Is it because she’s married? Is it because she’s been in the industry for a few years now and just wants to slow down? Is it because of the Nanula scandal? Who knows, but fans sure like to speculate.
