When I told Chyna how much I enjoyed the interview section of her DVD Backdoor To Chyna (my review) and was surprised how well she fielded those questions, she said:
â€œI didnâ€™t even know they were gonna ask them! But you know, over the years being a wrestler, being on T.V. youâ€™re ready for whatever is going to come your way.â€
I met the amazingly warm and attractive Chyna at the 2011 Exxxotica Expo at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center in Edison NJ this past weekend I got such good stuff, met such great people and have such spectacular pictures to show you (taken by top fetish photographer Erik Von Gutenberg, CEO of Von Gutenberg magazine) that I think I might get two columns out of my adventures.
First of all, for you not aware, Exxxotica had its share of controversy here in N.J.Â Four years ago the mayor of Edison literally shut the convention down and it had to scramble for a spot north (which caused a lawsuit that was just settled) and over the years the convention has grown to include a really cool custom car display along with increasing the porn side of its offerings. There are Exxxotica conventions here, in Chicago, Miami Beach and Los Angeles throughout the year and I have now been to our east coast one three years running.
Back to Chyna. She was more than ebullient about working on her DVD (a second one is on its way), her brand and about the company Vivid, where she is a contract star. â€œI finally got to make a movie the way I wanted to with a wonderful company,â€ she continued, â€œthe only reason I did it really. I didnâ€™t want to give half-way porn, I wanted them to throw me everything, I told them I could do it. So now Iâ€™m shooting my next movie with Vivid, I started doing feature dancing. Last weekend was my first and the guys were so into it. So now my fans have me from the wrestling, Playboy, T.V. now my Vivid movies. This is just so awesome for me.â€
(By the way, hot off the press: Chyna will receive the â€œMainstream to Porn Crossover Awardâ€ at this weekendâ€™s Fleshbot Awards right here in NYC for Backdoor to Chyna)
Stepping away from an unexpected hug from the adorable lady (really she couldnâ€™t have been sweeter) I wandered over to the infamous Rubber Doll and the big space she had right across from Jerseyâ€™s own Joanna Angel. Dressed in the outfit you see above, Rubber Doll, who can be found here, signed autographs, sold her DVDâ€™s and generally posed for pictures with everybodyâ€¦as any good adult star should at a convention like this.
I visited a bit with my friend Mistress Tee from our own Jezebel’s in Manhattan, sauntered by the Jesus Loves Porn booth (I just love those guys keeping the faith in the face of all these d’s and t’) and got a smile from the seemingly always smiling Mr. Marcus
(Yes thatâ€™s all of him in the pic!).
In part 2 next week Iâ€™ll tell you all about the XXX van, hip you to my interviews with Riley Steele and Stoya from Digital Playground, what is was like meeting the â€œfemale Lenny Bruceâ€ stripper/comic/poetess and take a spin past the cars.
