So What's A Release Party For A Porn Film Like?

So last Tuesday myself, my home girl LaTerra AKA Queen LaTittie and my Vice Boys, Sam and David, along with Sam's girl Tanya were able to get into the release party for Stormy Daniels' new western feature for Wicked Pictures, Wanted. And honey, this was one of the funnest release party I've ever been to and just reminded me why I love going to porn events more so then mainstream events. Sorry mainstream Hollywood, I love you and will walk down any red carpet I can get on but when it comes to the porn parties you guys can't compete. Maybe it's because everyone is there to have a good time, see old and new friends, and genuinely support each other, maybe it's because we all know and understand our place in the porn hierarchy and  no one is trying to act bigger than he or she is. Whatever it is, at the events I've gone to, the people are friendlier, more relaxed and people just have a good time. I can't tell you how many people were just dancing, and twerking, with abandon, not caring who saw or what others thought.
It was also nice to see some people I haven't seen in a while. Peter Warren from AVN who I've had lunch with was there and it was nice to catch up with him as was Tod Hunter who I first met on Safe Landings and sometimes see at Porn Star Karaoke and it was such a pleasant surprise to run into producer David Lord, who produced Safe Landings so it was almost like a little Safe Landings reunion. HAHA.
The interesting thing, we almost didn't get in to the party.
So a little backstory, Sam and David have worked on a number of Stormy's productions. David actually knows her. I have never met Stormy Daniels. I have never even talked to her on Twitter or anything and I haven't worked for Wicked, yet.
Anyway, last Tuesday David and I left Porn Star Karaoke early to head over to the party which was being held at Tiffany's On Vine. I've actually been to a couple mainstream red carpet events here so it was kind of nice to be back.
So David and I get out of the car walk to where the bouncers are and the first thing he asks is "are you guys on the list?" David says, "I don't think so" and we walk back to his car trying to decide what to do because don't forget we've got three other people who are planning to join us and if we can't get in we may as well just have them stay at Sardo's and join them for the rest of PSK.
And then it was like God sent a guardian angel honey. Daniel Metcalf who works for Wicked comes out, sees us and says "Hi David. I have to get something out of my car and then I'll walk you guys in." He walks us in with no problem and suddenly I knew what it was like to be on The A List. HAHA.
Luckily Sam, Tanya and LaTerra were able to get in without having to pay the $20 you aren't on the list cover. Yes child, God was smiling on all of us and Christmas came early.
The rest of the night went beautifully. We all had a great time and I got to meet some amazing people including Jessica Drake who couldn't have been nicer or more lovely.
But the icing on the cake was when Sam and David said, "hey Joe you want to meet Stormy? Maybe you can get some work on her sets." Now I love Stormy and her films and being able to be directed by her and work for Wicked would make so many of my non-sex performer porn dreams come true so of course I said yes but I must admit I was a little intimidated. Now I will admit I'm very bold and have pretty big balls but even my balls aren't big enough and even I'm not that big an asshole to just walk over to Stormy Daniels and say "hey how you doing? I wanna work with you."
So they take me over to where Stormy is and introduce me to her assistant, Jack Vegas and me and him really hit it off. Jack is a great guy and super friendly. He introduces me to Stormy who is even more beautiful in person and very friendly, soft spoken and down to Earth. I knew I had a good in with her when she offered me her hand first. So I congratulate her on Wanted and her night and then say that I'm an actor and have worked for Kay Brandt and Tarantino XXX. Much to my great delight she gives me her email address and tells me to send her my stuff. So fingers crossed that this is the beginning of a long and prosperous relationship and friendship with Stormy Daniels and Wicked. Especially since i love westerns and have started writing more western themed romance and erotica.
But as great as that was I do have to say I think the best part of the night was when a woman from The AVN's mistook me for Tarantino XXX. I got onto his Twitter and told him making a bad joke that had the punchline Invasion Of The Porn Body Snatchers to which he responded with "nah. I'm your evil porn twin brother." So now that's how I will refer to him until the end of time.
So for those of you who have wondered what a release party for a porn feature is like there you have it. I just want to thank Sam and David for not only inviting me to the event but for introducing me to Stormy and Jack. Jack Vegas for the formal introduction to her and the woman of the hour Stormy Daniels herself for talking to me and accepting my offer to eventually work for her.
Congrats Stormy, Wicked and everyone involved in the production and make sure to go and pick up your copy of Wanted! Yee-Haw!

XOXO
