Small, who used to perform under the porn name of Ashley Blue, screened footage of herself at 20 years old, shot for a blow job-choking adult site. She says prior to the day's shoot she thought she could take any kind of rough sex — but couldn't have prepared herself for a sadistic co-star, who blocked the air to her lungs until her eyes rolled into her head, her tongue lolled out of her mouth, and she died for a moment. We're not talking petit mort — Blue said she saw the light at the end of the tunnel.

The actual footage of this temporary death was, understandably, tough to handle for audience members at ASKEW. But Orion's confident, unapologetic voice as she stood onstage reading the corresponding chapter from Girlvert, her new novel on her porn career, made it clear that she hardly considers herself a victim. "I just want to start off by saying, I'm okay now," she said smilingly to dissipate any chance we'd consider her merely a victim of perversion.

Which is why we're stoked on her new book. Each chapter title is more rudely titled than the last: "Ass Herpes," "Double Anal," "Ass Cream Pie." Orion's frank narration reminds us that the adult industry can be a wooly ride, but hey, so can the world outside it.

FELIX D'EON

Imagine a potent folio of homoerotic drawings that combined the Art Nouveau perversity of Aubrey Beardsley; the erotic possibilities of Victorian gentleman's clubs, classic travel postcards, and early automobile advertising; the unintentional humor of 1970s porn; a splash of ancient Japanese and Indian inked-scroll pornography; and the chaste leer of vintage physique photos. "I have this secret fantasy that some Republican will come upon my drawings one day and think that they really are from the 1800s, and every argument they've held about homosexuality is proved wrong," incredible artist Felix d'Eon tells us over the phone from Mexico City.

A native of Mexico, d'Eon recently moved back after years in San Francisco, but his flashback artworks have been ubiquitous here, illustrating flyers for several scandalous parties and gaining the attention of contemporary aficionados. An excellent mimic, prolific producer, and web-savvy promoter, d'Eon works in a multitude of historical styles — throwing in a boner here, a bit of cunnilingus there — and actually earns his living through sales of his work on eBay, where he's cultivated a large following.

"Living in San Francisco was incredibly liberating, of course, and connecting with the Radical Faeries provided me with a lot of inspiration — and of course with a lot of models, too, since they love to take their clothes off." D'Eon moved back to Mexico to connect with his heritage and says he's as obsessed with the indigenous art in the famed anthropological museum as much as the porn he scrolls through constantly on Tumblr. Mariachis, tarot cards, and Aztec dancers have found their way into his work, as well as Felix himself. "I'm the best model there is," he says, "since I'll do anything I say."

ABOUT CHERRY

News that a film penned by local writer-perv and Adderall Diaries genius Stephen Elliott and Kink.com star Lorelei Lee was to be acted out by Heather Graham and James Franco and shot at Kink's historic Armory porn palace was pretty much the most exciting thing to hit the SF sex scene in a sweaty, screaming minute.
