Here's what I don't get. When an adult performer gets signed to a contract with a porno studio there's a helluva lot of fanfare. Press releases and parades and what not. Yet, when a performer's contract ends or she decides not to re-up with that same studio or, in a lot of cases, the studio does not wish to re-up with the performer there's not a peep.
Why is that?
Case in point, Wicked Pictures contract star Kirsten Price. Or should I say, ex-Wicked Pictures contract star? Fucked if I know. You see, up until recently, Ms. Price has been a Wicked bizzo. Meaning, she didn't appear in any other films other than those foisted upon the world by Wicked Pictures. You see, she had a contract with that studio making her their property like a nice armorer or adopted children. Yet, the other day when I was perusing the more than 60 thousand adult features released that week, I came across this flick:
Not for nothin', but that's Kirsten Price on a box cover for Twisty's. Twisty's ain't Wicked which means that Kirsten Price's exclusivity must be over or the parties involved are using the word "exclusive" in a way that it is not meant to be used. Either way, we missed a fucking memo and we'd like to know why.
You see, if we are to assume that Wicked Pictures and Kirsten Price did part ways, where was the notification? What, is Wicked embarrassed to say they had to let go of one of their contract stars due to economic challenges facing the adult industry? Is Kirsten Price afraid to admit that she is no longer a contract performer with Wicked because she's tired of having sex with Brad Armstrong? Did they think people wouldn't find out? And honestly, when a contract is severed between performer and studio it is a time of great sorrow and reflection. It hurts everyone involved even when the separation seems amicable. It's the ending of an era and thus, equal attention and fanfare should be shown.
Or, as we'd like to recommend (to save everyone the confusion and sorrow) studios should have performers who have been released from contract murdered just like E television did to Anna Nicole Smith. In those instances, press releases would not be needed nor recommended.
