Porn Star XXXposure – Buck Angel

Being the world’s first female-to-male transsexual porn star, almost everything he does is ground-breaking, history-making and eye-opening.

An Interview with the Legendary Susie Bright: Looking Back at the Changing Face of Porn

It's always such a pleasure to chat with Susie Bright. I think it's fair to say that she's had more of an influence on the development of sex-positive porn than almost anyone else.
