1000 Blog Posts and My Top 5 Updates

 

Hot facial cumshot on beautiful redhead Camille CrimsonI can’t believe the day has finally come, but I’ve reached 1000 blog posts here on CamilleCrimson.com.  It’s crazy to think that we’ve gotten to this place so quickly.  It seems like only yesterday I was just posting little occasional updates.  In the past few years, I’ve focused on posting at least 5 times a week, making sure that there’d be lots of discussion here for everyone.  The community has grown, we’ve become friends and we’ve discussed so many elements of porn, sexuality, our bodies, relationships and fun geeky/food/cat-related things along the way too, of course.

I promised I’d post my top 5 updates in celebration of the big day, so here they are in chronological order:

Those Eyes – A Tempting Erotic Blowjob: This is maybe one of the first times that I looked at what we made and thought that it was exactly what we wanted.  It fits our mood, our aesthetic and our relationship so perfectly.  Looking back on it years later, it still just clicks.

Sexy Blowjob with a Turquoise Flower: This one is so vibrant and playful, yet really sensual.  It feels very emblematic of The Art of Blowjob.  It was one of the first videos we shared really widely and it got a huge feedback.  Also, it has a cameo from a cat, and that feels like a perfect way to show a little “imperfection” in a perfect blowjob video.

Slow Morning Wood Blowjob: A lot of people look at this one as one of their favourites, and I have to agree.  Even though it ended up being more of a project than directly showing the action, the result felt very true to life.  Even though it’s constructed, it’s constructed based on reality and I think people really respond to it for that reason.  It was fun to shoot and it feels like a little mini-movie of our mornings together.

Nature: Nature was a wonderful departure for us because we got to shoot outside and really expand on our love of natural light.  It’s so gorgeous to see all the greenery contrasting against my red hair in the sun.  We both felt so instantly proud of it, and it looks exactly as it felt to shoot it…  Really free.

Menage à Trois: I couldn’t leave this one off.  Clara has been such an exciting new part of our life and we feel so lucky to have her.  This is a new chapter for us, and one we’re really excited for.  Every time she comes over, we feel closer.  It’s a beautiful way to make porn…  With a genuine, flirty new feeling.  Every time feels like butterflies in the best way possible.

I hope you’ll all stick around for the next 1000 blog posts and then some, and I hope to keep making favourite updates…  I am so lucky that this is my life, and I’m so happy to have you all here to share it with me.  Nothing is more enriching than coming here to show something new and feeling that sense of community. I appreciate it more than I can say.

Welcome to 2012

 

2011 has come and gone, and I think it’s really been one of the most amazing years of my life, if not the most amazing.  There have been so many incredible developments with the company, and we just continue to grow and flourish.  We won a Feminist Porn Award for best website, we got picked as the best blowjob site by Rabbits Reviews, we got at DVD deal with Hustler which is now almost near completion, we launched Pornographic Love to huge success, I’ve been featured in Hustler twice, I’ve had all sorts of amazing interviews and reviews, I started my own advice column at Peeperz, we launched the portraits section on The Art of Blowjob, we got nominated for an XBIZ Award for Specialty Site of the Year and now I just got named Fleshbot’s Crush Object of the Year…  I’m probably forgetting something, but just off the top of my head, that’s already an incredible year, isn’t it?

 

I know I say this time and time again, but I really couldn’t have done it without you all.  I’m so incredibly lucky to have such amazing, passionate people in my life who all care about porn and sexuality the way I do.  Through the site, I’ve met so many wonderful friends and I really do consider you all as such.  The support I get from you guys absolutely pushes me further and further towards my increasingly ambitious goals.  I have lots more goals and plans up my sleeve for 2012, so I’m definitely not spent yet.

 

I hope that 2012 will be an incredible year for all of you.  I have a feeling it will be!

Progress

It feels like really great things are happening.  When I look at all that’s happened over the past year, I’m absolutely astonished.  The Art of Blowjob has grown so much and I feel like the message of beautiful porn is really picking up momentum.  There is so much work to be done when you’re running a small company, especially when you’re doing something really different from the norm.  Amazingly, everything we’ve put out there has been very well received.  This absolutely fills my heart with joy.

I know it sounds funny to say, but I feel like this is my calling.  It goes beyond simply making porn…  It feels like helping people enjoy sex and have better sex in their lives.  I receive so much incredible feedback from people, whether it’s a couple who are watching my porn together and having more passionate sex lives or people who are happy to see love and respect in porn.  This makes me feel so proud.  Mike and I love doing what we do.

Going into the end of the year, I’m so proud of what we’ve done and I’m so thankful to all of you for being such constant sources of support.  There’s a lot coming up for the new year, a lot of big things happening and I’m so excited for all of it!  I think you’re going to love it.

Another Moment of Gratitude

Hey everyone!

It’s just been one of those days again where I feel really overwhelmed by all the wonderful people who are helping me along my way with kind words, great advice and lots of wonderful opportunities.  I know it’s a little silly to say, but I really couldn’t do it without all you sweet, amazing people.  It’s amazing to think that it’s only been 4 months since we opened up the office and decided to get serious about the company on a whole new level, but in that time I’ve met and spoken to so many incredible people, I’ve had some truly remarkable exposure and I’ve been able to solidify the company.  There are so many doors opening up for me and it’s just so crazy to think that it’s all happening.  It goes to show that if you work really hard, create something special and have the belief in yourself to take the big leap into the unknown, it can pay off.

More than that, I have a really great interview up on Blogoporno, and I’d love to share a few of my favourite questions:

BoP: I understand that you started your first adult site about 5 years ago. You’ve since gained some recognition from sites like Fleshbot and commentators like Violet Blue. How does it feel to gain that kind of recognition?

CC: It’s a really amazing feeling.  Every time I get featured somewhere, my stomach still does a flip.  On one hand, I feel like beautiful, artistic porn should be featured everywhere, but it still feels like every step forward is breaking down walls in the industry.  On a professional level it’s like changing the genre, but on a personal level it just makes me blush.

BoP: Now that you have Mad Blanket Productions how are you looking to expand? What can we expect to see in the short term? What will we see in the long term?

CC: It’s going to take a while, since we’re still a very small company and we need to get more attention to get the money to pay for more employees/models so we can make more sites…  The eventual goal is to have a roster of really great sites featuring all sorts of different performers filling all sorts of different niches, but done in a really beautiful, creative and socially positive way.  Any kind of porn, be it hardcore, fetish/kink, gay/lesbian/queer, etc can be shot and presented the way we do The Art of Blowjob, so the sky’s the limit.
