Kayden Kross Tells 'LA Weekly' How Porn Changed Over Last Decade

LOS ANGELES—Veteran performer, director and admired industry spokeswoman Kayden Kross breaks down how the landscape of adult entertainment has evolved since she entered it over 10 years ago in a lengthy interview published today by widely read alternative news outlet LA Weekly. In the piece, by Gustavo Turner, Kross details the effects tube sites and social media have jointly wrought upon both the way porn is consumed and the very nature of porn stardom.  Having started her career as a Vivid Girl—a now bygone badge of loftiness for a porn performer—Kross contends that these days, with the marketing megamachines that once propelled girls like Jenna Jameson and Ginger Lynn to superstar status largely whittled away, "You're only a brand name if the fans make you a brand name ... we're not burning in the memory of the fans like the porn stars of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s. Individually, we're not as formative. Fans who related to Raylene or Seka are fans for life—a VHS tape was hard to come by. Now there's so much—the turnover is so high. If you don't get a fanbase quickly and you cultivate them through social media, you're easily forgotten or easily replaced." She also comments on what a powerful impact social media has had on the culture within the industry, specifically referencing the controversy that exploded in 2015 surrounding the accusation her former Trenchcoatx.com partner Stoya made against former boyfriend James Deen via Twitter. "Stoya's rape claim changed the industry," Kross said. "She made an international story out of two tweets and, really, it changed the way the industry approaches consent."
