One of the highlights of 2010 for us so far has been attending CineKink Las Vegas. I mean, who wouldn’t want to see a traveling smut show in Sin City? Amongst many great films, we were treated to two films featuring the talented and engaging feminist pornographer Madison Young. We’d seen Madison’s work before on HBO’s Real Sex (a KingisaFink favorite) and in the lesbian porn series Crash Pad, where her charisma and charm won us over.
So last night I went to Madison Young’s workshop on “Fellatio & Fetishism”. Afterward I caught up with her and talked about feminism, porn, performance art, and what her porn star name would be if she combined her childhood pet’s name and the street she grew up on. (“It’d be a good drag name,” she said. “Buck Wood.”)
This Quick Anal Interview comes from Madison Young, feminist, art gallery owner, and porn star. If you haven’t seen her come on camera, you are missing out, it is a glorious thing to watch.
Most American women in their 30s spend their work days sitting in a cubicle, scrambling to prepare for office-wide meetings, and rushing to get their daily quota of work submitted to The Boss.
I’m going to have photos from BDSM Night and videos posted soon, but for now, may I present you with face slapping by Princess Kali to warm up the lovely Madison Young, who wowed us at the end of the night with an impassioned essay about her life as a porn star.
Pornography has always gone hand-in-hand with the idea of “doing it yourself,” but never more so than in the present era. The Digital Revolution has made it relatively easy for Joe and Jo Blow to not only produce and star in their own naughty movies, but also to show those movies to the world at large if they so desire. As a result, Independent internet porn now threatens to topple the DVD-based mainstream adult film industry in the same way that digital audio encoding has dealt a fatal blow to major record labels.
Embracing your lover weightlessly in a spaceship, getting down in a public place or making the ice melt with a complete stranger — whatever your fantasies, participants learned how to make them come alive on screen during the “DIY Porn” workshop taught by adult performer Madison Young downtown at Pure Pleasure
Accepting her award, “Heartthrob of the Year” Dylan Ryan tears up at the podium. It’s adorable. Soon after is the Indie Porn Pioneer award, given to Madison Young, wearing a brilliant gold mermaid dress slung with ropes. The award (from a distance it looks like a glass butt plug?) is hidden in the little shorts of the Boylesque dancers and the mermaid crawls around and on them looking for it. “Does anyone have any lube?” she asks, from her hands and knees. One of the matching Vin Diesels beside me yells “Spank him!”
Lesbian Life – Real Sex NYC via Hot Movie For Her Blog
I don’t watch many movies that repeatedly have me rewinding back every few minutes to re-watch the part I just watched. It’s few and far between that I see something that catches my attention so wholly that I am too distracted by the sex to remember that I am supposed to be watching to review. This movie is hands down one of the hottest I’ve seen in the last few months – and that’s a big deal coming from a porn reviewer. I enjoyed it so much that I don’t think I can fit everything I want to say into one review, so I am sticking with writing up what I loved so far. Be prepared for a follow up with more Real Sex NYC!
In one sense, as long as there is hot feminist porn out there, we’re all winners. In another, more important way, these people actually have trophies from The Feminist Porn Awards—so they’re the real winners.
Being brought breakfast on a tray has always been a favorite experience of ours—and Madison and Dylan have found a way to make a nice home-cooked breakfast even better.
Madison Young Knows How To Make Beautiful Music via Fleshbot
According to Madison Young, who knows a whole heck of a lot about the subject, “rockstars fuck the way they make music.” Naturally, this has us wondering if pornstars make music the way they fuck. Because if they do, well, we’d very much like to know when Madison Young will be releasing her first single—because from what we see here, she definitely knows how to rock a cock… and we’d love to see how her skills translate to other instruments.
20 Questions With Madison Young via Hot Movie For Her Blog
When porn meets art, both begin to take on a new form… and there is no one I’d rather have tie it up in rope and work it over more than Madison Young. Porno director, fetish star and queer art gallery director, the amazing Miss Young has her hands in everyone’s cookie jar, and shows no signs of slowing down.
“Porn’s Wardrobe Malfunctions” by Violet Blue at SFGate.com
“There was one thing the porn red carpets didn’t count on this year: San Francisco’s brat pack, tongues firmly in butch dyke and femme porn star cheeks (take that any way you wish.) Flaunting not just our San Francisco Values in the ballrooms and brunch lines, “Champion” star Syd Blakovich and feminist porn star/gallery owner Madison Young decided that yes, indeed the whole red carpet march was its own bit of performance art.”
“Do not look at Madison Young as just a bondage and BDSM model. She is more than that. Don’t think that Madison Young is just a redheaded porn star with an incredible body. Her mind is even more amazing. Actually, when you look at Madison Young it is hard to pinpoint how to categorize her. A self-proclaimed sex positive feminist, Madison Young took an unorthodox approach to raising money for a feminist art gallery. And now that she is breaking the stereotypes of what a typical porn star should be, Madison Young is not the next Annie Sprinkle or Nina Hartley. She is the first Madison Young.”
“If women like Madison Young ran the industry, porn would be a very different animal. As a jack-of-all-trades, Madison’s list of titles and credits is almost as long as her passion for the work she creates. From producing films for her studio, Madison Bound Productions, to curating exhibits for her non-profit gallery Femina Potens, Madison is a role model to anyone looking to succeed.”

“Porn Peeps Who Give Back” by Essin’ Em at SexualityHappens
“Madison Young uses some of the money she makes doing a variety of hot porn (queer, kink, and even some mainstream) to run a queer/feminst Artist Collective/Galley thing. Femina Potens to be exact. What a creative way to give back.”
NoFauxxx.com’s Trouble Interviews Madison Young by Courtney Trouble at Real Queer Porn
“Madison Young is a trifecta. Porn director, Fetish superstar, and owner of the Femina Potens feminist art gallery in San Francisco, Madison Young is constantly busy raising energy, awareness, and heart rates around the country. I sat down with her to pick her brain about making porn, running an art gallery, and “making waves in feminism one orgasm at a time.””
“Madison Young assimilates AVN Red Carpet” by Gram Ponante at Porn Valley Observed
“One of these things is not like the other – and that’s OK.”
“Layover Reviewed” by Gram Ponante at Porn Valley Reviewed
“So, if you are a lesbian, next time your airline makes a mistake and strands you in the heartland, know that your lover will cheat on you with your daughter’s girlfriend and get in a three-way with some randily progressive girls.”
“Feminist Pornographers to Address UC Berkley Class” by David Sullivan at AVN Business
“Directors Madison Young, Jackie Strano, Ian Sparks, and Shine Louise Houston will discuss the topic of queer feminist porn today (11/19/2008) at the University of California – Berkeley’s Female Sexuality class.”
“Madison Young Signs with Abigail Productions” by Jared Rutter at AVN Business
“Madison Young, the popular red-haired fetish model, has signed on as a director with Abigail Productions, which picked up for distribution Lesbian Life: Real San Francisco Sex, her latest title from Madison Bound Productions.”
“Madison Young Turns Your Guilty Masturbation Into Art” by Gram Ponante at Porn Valley Observed
“You might think of Madison Young as a deadly serious redheaded San Francisco porn performer/director with an agenda. But she is actually from Loveland, Ohio. I pinned her down recently and asked her to submit to the patriarchal structure that is the western white male interview. But I learned something about myself as well.”
