This week for the Scatterbrains Podcast, I bring you Belle Knox. It’s possible you may have seen her on "Piers Morgan Live," or possibly "The View," maybe you have picked up the latest issue of Rolling Stone, it’s quite possible you heard her on Howard Stern or even Opie and Anthony. Perhaps, you’re a subscriber to some adult entertainment sites that she has graced her presence on. Either way, it is hard to be an American and not have heard of her, at least in passing. She’s the infamous Duke University freshman that got caught moonlighting as an adult film performer as a way to pay for Duke’s pricey tuition.
That’s old news, though. I catch up with Belle on her mainstream media frenzy to ask her some things we haven’t already heard before. I dig right into it and ask her what she thinks about the negative things certain writers, fellow performers, and others have to say about her. We call out half-brained Stephanie Williams of the Huffington Post for losing all adult film creditability when she mentions Jenna Jameson as an "exception to the rule" for being a successful porn star.
We also peg Charlotte Allen of the LA Times as a woman that basically has Stockholm syndrome to the patriarchy, or is quite possibly trapped in the 1600s. Same difference? We couldn’t decide. We also bring up some of the other members of the industry’s questions, concerns, and flat out jealousies (even threatening emails from a fellow "Belle") that assume Knox is claiming to be the voice for the industry, and the only porn star to ever have an education, as the media has been (mis)leading on.
We get into some fun topics, too! We talk about typical girlie drinks, dancing in gym class, group sex, feature dancing, phone sex dos and don’ts, and ear sex (not related).
Want to know what our thoughts are on having sex with your own sex toy? We find out each other’s threshold for grossness and neither of us throws up (which is a huge bonus). This controversial, yet hilarious interview is definitely not for the people lacking common sense, a backbone, or a stomach… Depending on if you enjoy ear sex or not.
We’re not judging, we just have our limits. People are going to hear another side of Belle, and it is quite entertaining!

In episode six, I speak with an extremely funny, talented and giving person. She emancipated herself when she was 16 years old, she double majored in biology and physiology, she gives prizes to people that donate to the different organizations she is a part of, she loves to tell jokes, and she happens to be a porn star. As you can already guess, I want her to be my BFF. In this interview, I show you yet again, another side of an adult film performer's life. And Miss Alexa Aimes is definitely not your average performer.

For the second episode of the Scatterbrains Podcast, besides promising to stop talking in the third person (seriously, no clue) I bring to you, the people, Chauntelle Tibbals, Ph.D. Or, as everyone else knows her, "Dr. Chauntelle." Besides being a kickass brunch companion, her sociological research on the adult entertainment industry is significant to our ever-changing culture. Yet is highly underrated, degraded, and unfunded.

Whoever came up with the saying, "You can never have too much of a good thing," obviously had never been on the Internet. In all of its glory, the Web has many addictive qualities to it. From its anonymity and endless outlets for just about any and every fantasy and desire known, its alluring appeal can be difficult to ignore.

As Downtown Milwaukee considers its first new strip club in a long time, I thought it would be fun to clear the air about some of the stereotypes strip clubs and strippers tend to have. Granted, there are stereotypes for a reason, right?
