Racebending in porn and the Walking Dead parody

I don’t usually watch porn (it’s usually a waste of time imo), but there’s been a recent controversy in the industry. A big porn producer named Joanna Angel made a porn-spoof of The Walking Dead, and rather than cast an Asian guy to play Glenn, she cast a White guy with his eyes taped back. See more at Jezebel. See here too(Not safe for work.). I agree that it would be unacceptable in any other medium. I’ve heard rumors on why they couldn’t get Keni Styles to do it, but I’m sure they could’ve gotten someone else.

But perhaps the first time in history, people are actually speaking out for Asian actors. Maybe part of it is due to the existence of Keni Styles, maybe part of it is due to the fact that people are more open to diversity these days. See the video above. Perhaps porn can raise our social consciousness.

No, seriously, the actor has since apologized. See more here (err…somewhat not safe for work, although this link doesn’t lead to any nudity). I don’t think I’ve seen any other instances where anyone has cared what has happened in porn. Maybe this is a start. I imagine it’s possible that with people speaking out–like the actor, or like the woman in the video above–they will try to diversify their casting. It depends if it causes a big enough stir. Porn is a big business, but with lower shooting costs, it could be more fluid than the mainstream media.

  1. This is interesting, and speaks of a social consciousness unheard of before. Not something I would keep track of though.

  2. Ha! Byron Admit that you have watched it on the tube sites previously or current, otherwise you would not have heard of Keni Styles or Hung Lo. Wow you need a white woman to complain the racist white male porn establishment.

    White male porn producers are the ones who promote this white male asian female sexual fetish in porn and exclusively have white guys f*cking asian women on so called Asian American porn. This feeds into some to the like of Sigfried and others white men having a sexual fetish for the minority Asian female they see in their city or as N calls them race chasers. Hence you see mostly white or some black guys only f*cking hot Asian women in porn. I gave Keni Styles some credit on a forum while he mostly has sex with white women on porn he made an erotic Asian theme porn flick with Asa Akira

  3. Man. Why is all of that even important? It’s as if there are no greater things to worry about… such as being sodomized by SOPA and PIPA last year.

    Because it makes them money. Porn industry just like the movie industry will put stuff on that sells.

    Sad state of affairs if we’ve stooped to the level where we are cheering for an Asian Male porn star, an industry no one respects.

    Porn skews toward the male demographic. Maybe there is a market out there in America for Asian males ban*ing white girls but I guess not enough to get the industry’s attention.

    Also, want to point out the correlation between obsessive Porn watchers, HBD and PUA. All cut from the same cloth. Where do you think these PUA gurus get their ideas about an ideal woman from?

    Not to mention most of their fake “lay reports.”6

  6. I wish I could say I shocked when I heard this, but I guess it’s a sign of my age that I just rolled my eyes and went on to another story. So much for prOn being progressive…

    On the video, props to the librarian / prOn star for speaking up. I guess you really can’t judge a book by its cover, eh?

  7. I think I’m in love! lol

    she knows more about Asian-American history than most Asian-Americans, sad to say.

  8. No thanks. No matter what she says, who wants a girl with “daddy” issues or some other F’d up thing. We call girls like that Crazy 8s. Ones who would be a 9 0r 10 but you have to subtract points for their craziness. Not worth it in my book.

    ROFLMAO

    First time I’ve heard of that XD

    But how do you know she has daddy issues or is crazy? Craziness did not seem to emanate from her in that youtube video XD

    Try going out with one. You’ll experience the craziness first hand. 99.99% of all Porn stars, strippers, playboy playmates have some sort of daddy issues.I can tell you a few stories but probably not a good idea to divulge personal stuff on a public board. Have had quite a few friends date one of the three as well and it’s always from the beginning, “this one isn’t like the rest of them.” Next few months, we’ll see in the news she tried burning down a house. And, that’s not evening mentioning the hard core drugs that are always around.

    Sane Pornstar = Oxymoron

    No thanks!
