But, honestly, the fact that someone leaves porn isn't quite huge news these days. It happens every day. Sometimes twice. Heck, the average lifespan of a big-time porn starlet's career seems to be somewhere around six to eight months at present, and that figure's getting thinner and thinner all the time. So, getting into the whys and hows of a starlet leaving the industry is becoming a increasingly tedious exercise from one day to the next, and asking those questions seems irrelevant.
So I don't think we should bother asking why Bibi Jones is quitting porn (and you can find her on facebook if you want to hear it from her mouth anyhow). I think the more relevant (and ultimately more interesting) question is why hasn't James Deen quit yet?
He's definitely overflowing with that much-coveted "mainstream appeal". He's entering into what's sure to be a lucrative toy line with Doc Johnson. He's making an actual Hollywood movie (in which he trumps former crossover stars by not playing a prostitute or stripper). He's dreamt about nightly by legions upon legions of high-school females. So why is he still wasting his time banging ladies on camera?
Honestly, a press release arrived in my inbox this morning indicating that not only starring in Sinister X Syndicate's upcoming Snow White parody, but he's also starring in every upcoming feature of theirs from now on. Sinister X Syndicate. Really, James? Sinister X? Has the Earth been turned on it's ear or something? Why is mega-star James Deen making a porn parody of Rebel Without a Cause under the guiding hand of the auteur behind Taxi Driver XXX? He's making a most-likely-sort-of-real movie with the auteur behind Taxi Driver (non-XXX)!
Perhaps James doesn't wish to burn any bridges, and he's biding his time before leaving porno behind. Maybe he just wants as much money as possible and thus will take literally any job that comes his way, be it a perhaps-legitimate Hollywood movie or a definitely-not-legitimate parody of a highly overrated buddy comedy that came out three years ago. Maybe he's been banging all of those teenagers that tweet at him and he's just trying to have as much fun as possible before he goes to jail for the rest of his life. Who knows. Just quit already, James!
In related news, the recently-announced Bibi Jones Fleshlight has been re-branded as the James Deen Fleshlight. Good move, Fleshlight!
