6-degrees to adult stars?

I’ve got some good guest speakers lined up for next semester. Unfortunately, having tried and failed to line up a guest speaker from the adult industry, I am now calling on my augmented social network, via my blog. It seems that although there were some initial lines of “people who know people” among my personal networks, I seem to be further, in terms of social networks, from the adult industry than I might have expected so…

I am looking for:

* Adult web or video (or both) “talent,” at any level, niche, etc., and/or a producer/entrepreneur on the production side;
* who would be willing to do a video chat (via AIM video, video conference, etc.) , preferably live, but possibly via delayed video (e.g., I send questions);
* for my undergraduate class “Cyberporn & Society”‘;
* for no money (no, not even an honorarium–blame Gov. Pataki!);
* would be willing to have the interview be webcast afterwards.

If you read my blog and fit into that description, or if you know someone who does, or if you have a readership on your blog and wouldn’t mind relaying the request, I would be very appreciative.

Thanks, and Happy New Year!

    Not sure if either is germane, but I know a one-time web developer for a porn site (only marginally involved in the production of the actual pornography), and I know a professional dominatrix who advertises online.

    Hi Alex – have you considered adult star & blogger Nina Hartley?

    Her blog is at http://www.nina.com/index.shtml .

    She was in the sample of my celeblogs for my diss – she might be worth a try.

    Good luck.

    Asia Carraera is another “big name” adult star that has a very geeky side. She’s very interesting and intelligent and would be an excellent guest speaker.

    I run a few adult sites, the most popular being Shemuscle.com. I’d be happy to talk.
