Porn king Larry Flynt’s brother files suit in Ohio to dissolve family smut business – WJW

In the News, News - by ThePornoReporter - December 19, 2009 - 14:10 UTC - Be first to Comment!

Larry Flynt’s brother says he and his porn king sibling have a family business and he wants out of it.

Jimmy Ray Flynt filed suit in Ohio’;s Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Thursday demanding an end to a partnership with his brother.

Last week Larry Flynt won a trademark infringement lawsuit in Los Angeles federal court against Jimmy’s sons after they started a porn company and put the Flynt family name on it. They responded by posting a disclaimer on their Web site saying the company is not connected to their uncle’s Hustler empire.

Flynt testified during that trial that he and his brother are not partners, although his brother operates Hustler stores in Ohio.

Calls to Flynt’s office after hours Friday were answered by a recording saying the office was closed.

A porn flick of Tiger Wood’s X-rated escapades will be released in January, heaping yet more embarrassment on the golf superstar.

An adult film company made the tongue-in-cheek film – called Tiger’s Wood – with roles for jilted wife Elin Nordegren, celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred and alleged mistresses Rachel Uchitel and Jaimee Grubbs.

Self-proclaimed “A-list porn star” Tyler Knight plays Tiger while busty blonde adult star Kayden Kross plays Elin in the film, which Adam and Eve Pictures are set to be release in January.

DEA probes Valium, Viagra combo promoted to ‘mellow mind’ and give ‘lasting erection’» Marco Eagle

In the News, News - by ThePornoReporter - December 17, 2009 - 17:20 UTC - Be first to Comment!

The federal Drug Enforcement Administration is one of three agencies investigating the manufacture and distribution of Vegas Mixx — a crudely marketed combination of Valium and Viagra that promised to heal sexual dysfunction and was targeted for the local nightclub scene — sources tell the Las Vegas Sun.

Two sources familiar with the investigations said pharmacist Scot Silber, part owner of Green Valley Drugs and creator of Vegas Mixx, is also being investigated by the Nevada Public Safety Department and the State Board of Pharmacy.

At issue is whether the pharmacy was producing the pills on speculation and distributing samples rather than waiting for patient-specific prescriptions from doctors. Also, one source told the Sun that Silber was selling the pills for cash without a prescription, an allegation he denied.

Silber told the Sun in November he was not aware of any investigations. He did not reply to the Sun’s requests to comment for this story.

The allegations about Vegas Mixx are serious enough to get the attention of investigators, said John Hunt, an attorney who sits on Nevada’s Prescription Drug Task Force. Silber is accused of disregarding regulations that protect the public, Hunt said.

“There are allegedly multiple mistakes by those people who were putting this out in our community, and those can only lead to a tragedy,” Hunt said. “It’s as simple as that.”

In 2007, when Silber combined into a single pill Diazepam and Sildenafil — better known by the brand names Valium and Viagra — he thought he had a hot new product that would bring in big profits for his pharmacy, he told the Sun in November. On the Vegas Mixx Web site — which was shut down after inquiries by a producer of “Face to Face With Jon Ralston” — Silber and his marketing partner, Dale Matteson, promised the combination would mellow the mind and provide a lasting erection. The Web site promised that men would be able to perform “like a porn star.”

The late entertainer Danny Gans, who died May 1 of a prescription narcotics overdose, was a part owner of the pharmacy. Silber said Gans was unaware of Vegas Mixx. The performer, known for his squeaky-clean image, would not have approved of Vegas Mixx, he said.

Silber said he invested thousands of dollars in Vegas Mixx, but sales never took off so he recently gave up on the product.

But there may have been legal problems with the way the pharmacy manufactured and distributed Vegas Mixx. The drug combination takes on a higher profile because of Valium, a controlled substance heavily regulated by the DEA.

Green Valley Drugs is a compounding pharmacy, which means it’s allowed to combine drugs, but only with a patient-specific prescription from a doctor. The investigations focus on the possible illegal manufacture and distribution of controlled substances, the sources said.

Silber said Vegas Mixx was never distributed without a prescription and said he never broke any laws.

He told the Sun he made batches of Vegas Mixx to distribute as samples to doctors throughout Las Vegas to create demand for the product. Pharmacy experts say that sounds more like manufacturing, which requires a special license from the Food and Drug Administration.

In addition, the law requires doctors to perform face-to-face examinations with patients before prescribing controlled substances. But doctors who were approached by Silber when he was trying to sell Vegas Mixx said the pharmacist had planned having the physicians write prescriptions for Vegas Mixx after gathering a patient’s history and evaluating his condition via the Internet, versus conducting actual examinations.

“They were looking for doctors to sign up, to basically put themselves in the clear on dispensing (controlled) substances,” Dr. Warren Magnus told the Sun.

Magnus said he distanced himself from Silber because the proposal seemed illegal. Silber said that after the initial meeting with Magnus, he realized examinations would be necessary, and no prescriptions were ever filled over the Internet.

Golf Porn Earns Raul Quintana Lifetime Ban

In the News, News - by ThePornoReporter - December 17, 2009 - 17:16 UTC - Be first to Comment!

A Florida man has been barred from a luxurious country club after allegedly letting hard-core pornography be filmed on the golf course, according to the Miami New Times. Raul Quintana tells the paper that he allowed a “modeling agency” to stage a “photo shoot” at his condo, but the models ended up being from porn web site Bangbros.com.

The web site filmed Sexy Golfing Experience, in which “Tony, a ratty-looking dude with a thin beard and designer shades, commandeers a golf cart — clearly displaying Quintana's apartment number — to rendezvous with Devon on a Fisher Island golf green.”

Consequently, the Fisher Island Community Association severely restricted Quintana's privileges, including an order that he must gain security clearance before any outside guests can enter the premises. Naturally, he is unhappy with the situation, saying that “Bang Bros really banged my life.” See the full article for more details.

Golf and pornography have held a recurring presence in the news lately. Two of Tiger Woods’ alleged mistresses, Joslyn James and Holly Sampson, have worked in the adult film industry. Among the pair of porn stars, one is wanted in the state of Washington while the other may have worked as an escort. Sampson, meanwhile, described her sex with Woods as “amazing,” “beautiful” and “sensual.”

A man known to police as ‘Spider-Man’ for his daring escapes and who has starred in gay porn videos with his twin brother has been sentenced to three years in prison for burglary.

Taleon Goffney received the sentence Monday after striking a plea deal with New Jersey prosecutors in Camden.

Authorities say he sawed through the roofs of businesses and scaled wires to get out.

Police say Goffney broke out of a police car in Clementon and swam across a pond in handcuffs to avoid being caught in 2006.

The 27-year-old is serving prison time in Pennsylvania, and has resolved charges in Florida, Alabama and Delaware.

His twin brother, Keyontyli, is free after being sentenced in September to time served in New Jersey.

Tiger Woods Porn Flick: You Knew It Was Coming – E! Online

In the News, News - by ThePornoReporter - December 16, 2009 - 00:20 UTC - Be first to Comment!

And now it's time for the porn.

Following the tabloid coverage, the late-night jokes, the animated re-creations and even a commentary or two on National Public Radio, the Tiger Woods scandal has officially reached the phase in which someone turns the story into an excuse for people to engage in sex on camera.

Porn actors, that is—not Tiger or any of the various alleged lady friends. This is fiction.

E! News has obtained a copy of the script for Tiger's Wood, which bills itself as the “official porn parody” of the non-golf exploits of the sports icon. The script riffs on the story and (presumably) makes up stuff where it might make things spicier.

How does it all turn out? Well, we wouldn't want to spoil it for you, but we're pretty sure you can guess how this Tiger tale ends.

Flynt wins in fight to keep his good name off ‘trashy’ films – USATODAY.com

In the News, News - by ThePornoReporter - December 16, 2009 - 00:19 UTC - Be first to Comment!

The porn family feud that played out in federal court this week ended in a draw Friday when a jury ruled that Larry Flynt's estranged nephews infringed on their famous uncle's trademark when they launched their own smut business, but did not invade his privacy and were not liable for the substantial attorney fees both sides rang up.

The jury of four men and four women rendered its verdict after a four-day trial, during which they sat next to a big-screen TV that was used to repeatedly display blown-up photos of porn DVD boxes featuring naked women on the front and people engaged in all sorts of contortions on the back.

They listened as Flynt, who was paralyzed when he was shot by a white-supremacist sniper in 1978, sat in his gold-plated, velvet-lined wheelchair on Tuesday and Wednesday and testified that in the porn business his name stands for quality. His nephews, he said, were besmirching it by putting that name on “trashy” adult movies.

“The junk they publish hurts my reputation, which in turn hurts my revenue,” the gruff, gravelly voiced porn king testified.

As both sides debated what constitutes an elegant sex film as opposed to a trashy one, jurors sat stone-faced, observing posters for films with titles like “Hot Showers” and “Sex at Your Service.”

After about three hours of deliberations Friday, they concluded that Flynt's nephews, Jimmy Flynt Jr. and his brother, Dustin Flynt, did indeed infringe on their uncle's trademark when they produced films with just the word “FLYNT” in large capital letters above the titles.

At the same time, the jury rejected Flynt's contention that his nephews invaded his privacy, a ruling their attorney, Dan DeCarlo, said holds Flynt responsible for all attorney fees.

Overall, both sides claimed victory.

Flynt's attorney, Mark Hoffman, said all his client wanted was to maintain his good name in the porn community, adding that he never asked the jury for monetary damages.

“This has been very hard on Mr. Flynt,” he said. “He never wanted to go this far. All he wanted to do was the right thing.”

Meanwhile, Jimmy Flynt Jr. said he has already launched a new website that he believes meets the requirements of the jury's ruling. Called flyntnation.com, it contains both his and his brother's first names, as well as the disclaimer, “Larry Flynt is not affiliated with and does not endorse this.”

“No one wins in this thing,” said Jimmy Jr., who bears a striking resemblance to his square-jawed uncle. “It's sad that the family is in this dispute, but we felt strongly that we should be allowed to use our name in our business.”

The nephews launched their own company after their uncle fired them from executive positions at Larry Flynt Publications in November 2007. Jimmy Jr., 37, had worked there for 17 years, starting in the mailroom. His 34-year-old brother had been there 10 years.

“I felt they were doing a horrible job,” their 67-year-old uncle testified.

Larry Flynt, who started in the porn business more than 40 years ago, owns Hustler magazine and other publications, operates Internet sites and retail stores, produces films, owns pricey real estate and even markets a line of clothing.

Although his privately held company is said to be worth tens of millions of dollars, he fired his nephews' father, Jimmy Flynt Sr., last year, saying he needed to save money to sue Jimmy Sr.'s sons.

“I told him that this lawsuit was going to be expensive to finance it, and the only way I could was to not have him working for the company,” Flynt testified during the trial.

Flynt family porn feud begs question: Whose smut is classier? | khou.com | News

In the News, News - by ThePornoReporter - December 16, 2009 - 00:19 UTC - Be first to Comment!

When it comes to peddling porn, Larry Flynt wants you to know his videos of people having sex are a cut above other smut on the rack.

So when a pair of nephews Flynt personally groomed for the porn business decided to launch their own company last year and use the family name, the creator of “Barely Legal,” “Busty Beauties” and “Daddy Gets Lucky” wasted no time suing the upstarts for trademark infringement.

Flynt accused his brother Jimmy Flynt’s sons in federal court of tarnishing his image by launching Flynt Media Corp. and producing a series of videos he says are nothing but cheap knockoffs.

“The junk they publish hurts my reputation, which in turn hurts my revenue,” the gruff, gravelly voiced porn king testified in U.S. District Court this week, where a Flynt family feud is playing out before a stone-faced jury and a no-nonsense judge.

The four women and four men of the mostly middle-aged jury stoically viewed photos of some of the nephews’ DVD boxes. Images of naked, well-endowed women on the front and people in all sorts of contortions on the back, were flashed on a giant-screen TV right next to them.

A few jurors scribbled notes. Some studied the images carefully.

But there was nary a snicker, a blush nor a smile.

With Judge A. Howard Matz bearing down on the attorneys to keep things moving, the jury was expected to get the case by late Friday afternoon. Flynt is seeking unspecified damages.

The porn mogul, who was paralyzed in an assassination attempt in 1978, sat in court in his gold-plated, velvet-lined wheelchair Tuesday and Wednesday.

He testified that his nephews, Jimmy Flynt Jr. and Dustin Flynt, were a pair of bumbling, incompetent employees that he only kept on the payroll for years out of a sense of family obligation.

Jimmy Jr. worked for him for 17 years and Dustin Flynt for 10, and both had risen to management positions at Larry Flynt Publications before they were fired in November 2007.

“I felt they were doing a horrible job,” said Flynt, who owns Hustler magazine and other publications, operates Internet Web sites, retail stores, produces films, owns pricey real estate and even markets a line of clothing.

Their father, who isn’t named in the lawsuit, is fighting his own battle with Flynt in Ohio, suing his brother for attempting to evict him from a building in Cincinnati where he operates a Hustler retail store.

Larry Flynt, whose privately owned company has been said to be worth tens of millions of dollars, testified Wednesday that he terminated his brother last year to save money for his legal battle against the nephews.

Soon after being fired, Jimmy Jr. launched Flynt Media Corp. and brought his younger brother aboard. They produced a handful of sexually explicit videos before Flynt got a court order shutting down their business pending the outcome of the lawsuit.

Jimmy Jr., 37, and Dustin Flynt, 34, testified that when they named their company and began producing videos with “FLYNT” in large letters on the boxes they had no intention of being confused with their uncle.

Although not household names to mainstream audiences as their uncle is, both insisted they are celebrities within the more insular world of porn and would be quickly found out if they tried to pass their work off as his.

“There was nothing to gain in trying to trick the trade,” said Jimmy Flynt Jr., who bears a striking resemblance to his square-jawed uncle.

They also said their videos are classy, the design of the boxes less cluttered and more modern than what their uncle’s company puts out and the sex is done tastefully.

“With the new line we are looking to bring back the class and elegance of erotica,” said Dustin Flynt.

For his part, Larry Flynt acknowledged that although he long ago trademarked his well-known Hustler brand, he never got around to trademarking his name.

“I just never heard of someone using someone else’s name,” he said.

Still, he said, that name often appears on Hustler-produced videos, frequently on the top of the box, in the words “Larry Flynt’s Private Collection.”

And that, Flynt and his lawyers say, is an assurance to purchaser that they’re getting the highest-quality porn their money can buy.

2nd Porn Star Linked to Woods — South Florida Sun-Sentinel.com

In the News, News - by ThePornoReporter - December 16, 2009 - 00:18 UTC - Be first to Comment!

Tiger Woods' list of alleged mistresses grew to eleven Tuesday with the addition of a second porn star.

The latest addition to Tiger Woods' stable of women include adult film actress Veronica Siwik-Daniels, who is professionally known as Joslyn James.

Swedish newspapers are reporting that Woods' wife Elin Nordegren bought a $2 million home dubbed Faglaro Mansion on a small, secluded island reachable by ferry from Stockholm.

TIGER'S RUMORED WOMEN

1.) Rachel Uchitel. The club hostess was the first of the women to be linked to Woods after the National Enquirer reported that she traveled to Australia to be with Woods during a golf tournament there. So far, she has denied the affair.

2.) Jamie Grubbs. The 24-year-old reality show contestant and cocktail waitress claims she carried on a 31-month-long affair with Woods until his crash last month. She offered a Woods voicemail to prove it.

3.) Kalika Moquin. The 27-year-old club manager from Las Vegas is reported to have had a brief sexual relationship with Woods. She would neither confirm nor deny the report.

4.) Cori Rist. The 31-year-old swimsuit model reportedly met Woods at a Manhattan club last year before they began a sexual relationship that led to Woods flying her out to various secret locations for hook-ups, and her introducing the golfer to her 7-year-old son.

5.) Jamie Jungers. The 26-year-old, who sold her story to a British newspaper, is a former employee of Trashy Girls Lingerie. She said she met Woods in Las Vegas.

6.) Mindy Lawton. The 33-year-old pancake house waitress from Orlando claims she was dumped by Woods in 2007. According to the Post, it was her affair with Woods that was caught on camera by the National Enquirer, when he was snapped dropping her off at her trailer park. The threatening news later led to a Woods Men's Fitness cover in exchange for the magazine's silence about the alleged affair, the New York Post reports.

7.) Holly Sampson. The 36-year-old from Los Angeles is a former porn star, who has starred in such films as “OMG, Stop Tickling Me” and “Flying Solo 2.” According to the Sun, she has neither confirmed nor denied her affair with Woods.

8.) Unidentified Alleged Mistress No. 8. A former cocktail waitress from Orlando, Fla. does want to reveal her identity yet, according to her attorney Michael O'Quinn. But this she has said: at the time the affair allegedly began, she was 20 years old and met Woods at the Roxy in Orlando, where she was a VIP server.

9.) Unidentified Alleged Mistress No. 9 is reported to be a “sexy” British TV presenter who was single at the time, but is now married.

10.) Unidentified Alleged Mistress No. 10. is reported in a UK paper to be a “sex-addicted cougar.”

11.) Joslyn James. The star of many, many porn videos was named on the sports blog Deadspin.com as a Tiger regular, but did not respond to the site's call for comment.

In a related note, the Post reports that the National Enquirer caught Tiger Woods in a steamy extramarital affair two years ago, but killed the story in exchange for the golfer doing a rare cover-shoot for its sister magazine Men's Fitness, according to former Men's Fitness editor-in-chief Neal Boulton.
