LOS ANGELES—A writer who goes by the name rexy_unchained—aka Rex Ridgewood—took to reddit earlier today for an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session during which he talked about his career writing porn parodies for porn.com. A creative writing major, rexy was unabashed about being a porn fan and also about his aspirations in the industry, saying at one point, "I take my job seriously. I want to be the Quentin Tarantino of Porn. My mission is to make and write real movies that mimic t.v production values and put sex in there."
Expounding on that thought, he added, "Even HBO or Showtime, with their simulated sex, can't do what I want to accomplish. I'm a renegade with bloodlust on my mind. I want to turn the tide of boring, gonzo porn into true erotica. I want to bring back the element that porn is fantasy and not just some color-by-the-numbers chore you have to half-heartedly try to enjoy."
Regarding gonzo porn versus scripted porn and why he loves what he does, he said, "I'm an avid porn watcher like most dudes and I know that whenever I see gonzo porn (porn with little to no story) i find that i don't usually get turned on as much or at all, because there's no fantasy for me to delve and get in 'lost' in. So, when they brought me on, my emphasis, my whole drive was to write porn parodies that had that winning combination of humor, story and hardcore fucking."
About the fucking, however, he said that not only does he not bother writing sex scenes—"I basically write the entire script and when it comes to the inevitable sex sequence, i just leave it blank and write 'Fucking ensues now'"—but when asked, he owned up that he doesn't even get to meet the porn stars in his movies, but added that it was a good thing.
"Fortunately, no. I don't get to meet the talent. I'd eat a bullet if I had to write scripts AND go through the sketchy process of booking flaky porn stars, dealing with agencies, fees, forms, scheduling locations, and emergencies like a guy popping too early and getting a stunt cock in last minute, which has happened. I do more damage from behind my monitor. But never say never."
That said, his favorite porn stars include "Alexis Grace, Darla Crane (I've a bit of a MILF fetish), Jennifer White (because she's hot and kinda resembles Megan Fox), Caprice, Faye Reagan, Hayden Winters, Zoey Nixon, Proxy Paige, April O Neil, Tia Tanaka, Stevie Shae, Bailey Blue."
Ridgewood's porn parody writing credits include Riding Little Red, Home Alone?, My Slutty Valentine! and the just released American Whore Story.
