Trouble finding fresh talent?
As a long-time subscriber of all your sites, I am very happy with the latest shoots. While there are always things I would like to see more of, I think the quality remains high. I also appreciate the models doing a great job making everything look real.

I am wondering, though, if you are having trouble finding fresh young talent since you moved to Oregon? When you were in Oakland, you got a lot of fresh-faced young models who were just getting into the industry. For many, it was the first time they have been bound. It was great seeing them experience what you had to offer! I must admit it was nice seeing a lot of these girls make it into main stream knowing where they had started off with you.

In Oakland, you also were able to get a lot of models to keep coming back even though they had broken through. I think about Penny Pax and Veruca James in particular.

I guess it is nice that you are getting models who apparently want to do this to the point that they make the trip to Oregon (unless they are already local).

I don't know if there is much you can do about it, but can you comment on whether you are trying to get (or unable to get) fresh, new talent? Is it too expensive, or is this just the direction you want to go?

Keep up the good work! Thanks.

Hi Knotnice

I'm a little confused by your post. Perhaps I am not understanding what you are asking for.

Many of the performers we've been working with in Oregon are new to the adult industry, new to the BDSM adult industry, new to BDSM, or new to working with INSEX. Some are from Oakland, LA, or local. Others are from all over the country. Yet others that we've worked with up here are seasoned veterans of the industries. It seems like there's been a good mix of experience in the performers lately.

You mention Penny Pax and Veruca James. Neither of them were fresh-faced when they worked with us so I'm not clear on how they fit into this thread.

Lastly I wanted to explain that we do our best to not solicit performers. We try to use as many performers who sign up to work with us on our model application. Quite a few do and we do everything we can to use them as opposed to performers we have to seek out. If you know of performers you want to see you're more than welcome to send them to our application page.

Thanks OT, and I'm sorry for the confusing post, but you seemed to answer everything I was asking. It's good to know that most of the models are seeking you out.

The point that I was trying to make with Penny and Veruca is that so many girls who make it to mainstream porn don't come back to bondage. It looks like some girls start with bondage to get on their feet and then move to mainstream. Penny and Veruca kept coming back to bondage even though they were mainstream stars.

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to answer my post.
