CNBC Says "Mike South - South is the Nikki Finke of the porn industry. His blog, which is never short on opinion, is a must-read among industry insiders. His style is unique, but he is also a leading agent of change within the industry. There are few fence-sitters when it comes to opinions about South, but no one ignores him."

Some People Just Ain’t Too Bright

Funny how prosecutors don't think stuff like this is all that witty #stupidshitcriminalsdo

Funny how prosecutors don’t think stuff like this is all that witty #stupidshitcriminalsdo

People that know Uncle Peg aka Michael Whiteacre ie  Ari Scott Bass know him for what he is.  A coward who beats up his wife,  the same wife that pays all his bills and keeps a roof over his head, he has no job and prior to her he lived off his mommy and daddy.

Whenever he knows he has been busted he starts with his same old tactic  deflect, make up shit and then tell them he hopes they die of cancer.

Of course I was a target today but that don’t bother me really  I am ALWAYS a target for this buffoon.

Uncle Peg took it on himself to visit Patrick Stone last weekend and decided to do a Donny Long on him today.  The problem is all he did was to highlight the illegal shit that he (Uncle Peg) and Kink are doing.

To hear him tell it  he went to question Patrick last week and Patrick “ran away”, the truth is quite a bit different and you will understand why suddenly its so important for him to do a smear campaign on Patrick.

You see Peg was in San Francisco because his wife was attending some conference there and he went with her.  ( No word if leaving the state without permission is a violation of his probation but we will assume he had permission to leave.

Since he had nothing else to do because Christina Parreira was at that conference he decided to stalk Patrick, calling and showing up at his place of employment.  No doubt he was hoping that Stone might whip his cowardly ass so he could sue but instead Patrick did as he should have and called police to handle the situation, and Uncle Peg ran.

To hear Peg tell it he was going to question Patrick but that isn’t how the police saw it.  Combined with documentation of previous threats the police took down the report and suggested that Patrick get a restraining order, he did, the judge had no problem issuing a restraining order after seeing the evidence.

And guess what happened today when Uncle Peg appeared in court….he was served that restraining order.  Now I am sure that the judge and the prosecutor are now aware of this and seeing that Uncle peg is already on probation with a suspended sentence for his first assault charge in january (He has at least two more since then but both happened before he was sentenced on the first charge)

So what you have is the karma train pulling into the station in Henderson Nevada.  I don’t know if that restraining order would be a violation of his probation or not but I was kind enough to notify both the judge and the prosecutors office that it did happen and should they see fit Uncle Peg could have his probation lifted at anytime and maybe he will be sharing a cell with Jonathon Koppenhaver for a while.

So ya see…now it all makes sense why he wants to create a diversion to deflect from his own criminal activities.

Its too bad he never passed the bar and doesnt have anything he owns because I have an open and shut case against him for libel per se, but whats the point?  spend 10K just to get a judgement against a broke ass loser with no job and no assets?  not even a credit card (he uses his wifes)…Ya we did discovery….

Anyway in the end I expect he will pay for his transgressions and I will have the satisfaction of knowing that I spoke directly with the prosecutor, provided him with evidence and agreed to testify if I am needed… Apparently there are quite a few of us, according to the prosecutor.

Have a nice day Uncle Peg, hope I am on your mind a lot.




Uncle Peg Gets his Case Continued

Ari Scott Bass aka Michael Whiteacre, better known to his girls as “Uncle Peg”  got his domestic violence case continued today in Nevada.  The new trial date is Oct 28 2014.

That gives him time to fuck up even more.

He also has a pending court date in September on a different charge.

I have new  info on Uncle Peg but am not yet at liberty to release it, as soon as I can, I will.


A Cherry By Any Other Name

Usually what you read here isn’t about someone in porn who actually does something good. I know it happens everyday but rarely does anyone tell me about it like they do when someone is doing scummy stuff.

I shoot girls who do great all the time but to me that isn’t news because I am paying them to do a good job, I am demanding and they rise to the occasion. In my years I have discovered and shot first lots of girls that did very well Anna Malle, Melissa Hill, Anastasia Blue, Felicia Fox and many more, I recognized the potential in Kayden Kross and got her her contract at Adam and Eve, when she left there I worked very hard to convince Jewn at Digital Playground that even though she wasn’t new she was a good fit for DP.

Certain girls just jump out at me as being well above the average pornchick. Kayden Kross was one such girl.

Most of the girls I shoot have no desire to go to Porn Valley and become pornstars.

I shot a girl last year around this time who called herself Giovanna, I immediately saw something in her, she wasn’t your skinny little blonde porn chick with tits too big for her body, she was extraordinarily feminine and sexy with this prettiest face I have seen in porn in a long long time. Heres her photo:

Cherry Morgan, she called herself Giovanna at the time

Cherry Morgan, she called herself Giovanna at the time

And here’s a no nudity youtube video of her

After shooting her I told her that I didn’t think the name Giovanna fit her properly and later at dinner we all decided tha she was more of a Cherry, she liked it and it stuck.

I shot her several times over the last year and she just gets better and better

These pics are from Saturday Night They are totally unretouched, and she did her own makeup.

Cherry Morgan - unretouched photo, she did her own make up

Cherry Morgan – unretouched photo, she did her own make up

Cherry Morgan

Cherry Morgan

OK so you are prolly going okokok we get it you like her. I do like her she is a good friend and like family to me but there is a point to all this….

In addition to shooting for my sites I also shoot content with girls I have access to for others (not Manwin though LOL)

I was shooting Cherry Saturday night for a company. they supplied the male talent and I basically shot and directed what they wanted. Without going into details Cherry single handed saved a scene that would otherwise had to have been scrapped the male talent had some performance issues but instead of just giving up and blowing it off she turned it into a great scene that was both fun and believable, she did it off the cuff, with no direction and really blew me away. I thought that with just some acting classes and or a good coach she could really act, not since Melissa Hill have I shot a girl who could really act.

So now I am giving credit where its due.

Cherry Morgan will be coming to the LA area in mid to late September if you want a glamorous girl who looks like a blonde Jessica Rabbit, enjoys doing what she does, is totally pleasant and drug and drama free and will do a great job for you with a smile, book Cherry Morgan through ATMLA. You won’t be disappointed.

Now all that said…don’t worry I haven’t gone soft tomorrow is Uncle Pegs Court date and you can bet I will report on it, I also have a piece coming on The FSC that will surprise you…even coming from me.

I do want to run some more positive stuff on the biz so if you think you have something or someone that deserves a positive mention do send me the story. That’s not an invite for PR people to send me bits about how Chanel Preston can play Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries” with her poots. (Well if you have video go for it!)

Finally I have been Ice Bucket Challenged thats coming later…..

Beware The Angry Midget In Florida – Reader Mail

The Jeffrey Douglas story is developing and good lord is it fucked up….That should be coming on Monday.

This isn’t the first time I have heard about these two scumbags,  If anyone has photos of them lmk  meantime ladies, avoid these two…

Hello Mike,

Below is my recount of the horrible experience I had with Mr. Valinski (real name VALENSKY SYLVAIN ) and Jack Moore (Real Name Thomas Thompson). It’s my understanding they are now working as partners and still doing this to girls at Jack’s home. Valinski also told me his agency was Motley Models and I sent a screen pic of him saying that and wanting his illegal percentage from me. Please let me know if you need anything else. I really want people to know what they did so they don’t do it to more girls. I’m not stupid I know this is porn but I expected to work and make money, not be “trained” and treated like a sex slave.

Day 1 6/23/14

I arrived in Orlando from Michigan on June, 23rd 2014. I was picked up at the airport by Mr. Valinski and Jack Moore. I was then taken to Jack Moore’s home located at 4010 Estancia way, Melbourne 32934. It was late and when we go to the house I was shown 3 rooms. One room was vacant and I was told that’s where models stay but I wasn’t a model yet so I’d have to sleep with one of them. Shortly after I was told to masturbate with the toy I’d brought and pose for some pics with a Spunk lube bottle. After that I was told I needed to be industry trained and to have sex with both of them and double penetrated. Then told I had to sleep with Jack that night.

Day 2 6/24/14

Another training session, I was to give head to both of them. They said they wanted to make sure I was ready. The b/g scene I shot with Jack for his site was the only time I was paid and Valinski took 20% of that. They kept me in the house for the next 2 days not booking me any work and telling me I had to sleep with them to make sure I could perform. The only thing he said he had for me was a site called facial abuse and it was $900. I told him no way would I do something like that. I found out later they actually pay $1200 and Valinski was taking to other $300. I still wouldn’t do it but he was trying to rip me off and make me pay him a percentage.

I contact the scout who sent me to them and he called Mr. V telling him to stop and leave me alone. He did not. He tried to have sex with me again after telling me not to tell anyone what goes on. I ran out of the room and went outside to call a friend. I just needed to talk to someone. Valinski came outside and tried to talk to me again. My friend tried to call and text me 15 times and when he couldn’t reach me he called the police. When Jack called me to the front door I was surprised to see them. When they asked me if there was any problems I scared to say anything because Jack was standing beside me so I said I was ok. I slept outside that night so they wouldn’t touch me and waited for them to leave in the morning so I could leave. The scout that sent me was able to put me in contact with a legitimate producer who helped me get to a train station and to Tampa. He let me stay at his model house in my own private room all by myself. I left the next day for home.

The producer that helped me out of that hell talked with me and explained how things really should work and that girls are not trained or need to prove they can perform. I feel stupid and taken advantage of. I’m still recovering because I still have to relive it. I found out Valinski wasn’t even tested so I immediately went to the hospital to get tested and checked for diseases. I was always being watched and couldn’t call or text my friends. THEY NEVER LEFT ME ALONE. I was scared, alone and I hate them both for what they did to me.

Emily M.

At fetishcon, Angry Midget (Valinski) and his male talent Magnum were telling girls they needed to do a test shoot with Magnum. After he got called out on Twitter about telling girls that, he later said it was just if they wanted to. Valinski is also sending girls to Tampa Bukkake and Dirty D who uses untested guys doesn’t even test himself.

Douglas Declares Bankruptcy

One thing I left out of the previous post is that Douglas declared bankruptcy and defaulted on about 100K in debt,  yet another reason to ask why The FSC keeps him around?   Nothing illegal about filing bankruptcy or anything but it does demonstrate a lack of responsibility.


Im startng to get some tips on all of this  the most credible of which is VERY interesting.



OK I Dont Get It

I am enjoying some beach time in Florida and on the ride down I started thinking about something.  At first it was just a random thought but it stuck because there is something about it that doesn’t make sense…AT ALL.

Now we all now that The FSC and particularly Diane Duke are questionable but there’s one thing that bugs me and has for years, that “thing” is Jeffrey Douglas.

Now don’t just randomly dismiss this  because something doesn’t ass up   Douglas doesn’t do anything yet I know for sure that The FSC pays him for “services”, never mind that he is less useful than powdered water or a waterproof towel. He is still around.  Yet they are paying Karen Tynan to do the stuff that Jeffrey  Douglas is supposed to be doing, why is that?

Someone out there has to know, what is that Douglass has over Diane Duke?

Inquiring minds want to know….

XVideos Responds To Allegations By AVN and ZBiz

Hey, this email from us will probably look odd to you since I’m sure you consider we hurt the industry as much as Manwin. (Mike sez-Actually Manwin is way worse)

Anyway, today we make the headlines of both XBIZ and AVN. There is also a big thread on GFY. All these places I have very little respect for (PR garbage or worthless comments, only occasional quality articles), but I do respect your intellectual honesty so I’d like to give you some insight on what’s going on.

A couple weeks ago we were requested by JT (ex Youporn guy) to delete one of his channels on XVIDEOS, possibly his most popular one, because he had signed an exclusivity agreement with Mingeek/Manwin.

asked him if he could give me more details he only replied he was under NDA.

We thought this would just be the start of a large and systematic campaign to tear up their competition’s sites, because it does not really make sens otherwise, so we had to react and came up with this strange new agreement that is causing a lot of reactions.

It looks quite incomprehensible without these explanations. But we don’t really see a way to do it very differently. We don’t want to “own” studios’ content. We’ll probably rewrite those terms later after receiving advice from Marc Randazza.

I would also like to give you a quick Manual of XVIDEOS use for content owners as it may have more impact on your site, if you decide it’s worth posting, and perhaps you will also understand that we are not as bad as you think :

1/ Get your content fingerprinted. It has been available for free for 5 years now. No one will be able to pirate your videos unless heavily edited.

(Note from MikeSouth: This is NOT the paid “extortion Vobile service” that was forced by the FSC before onto both tubes and studios.)

Here’s how that works:

It’s fairly simple : ask a coder to setup a complete url list of their videos, preferably with an identification number or description after each, then emails it to us. Our script will simply read them from the studio’s servers, and generate a signature (fingerprint) and keep a few thumbs in the database. We will not copy or store any video.

After that each new upload is checked against those signatures and if there is a match, is simply blocked, unless it’s coming from a channel (verified content owner).

It’s a very easy and quick process that doesn’t require any special setup or skills on the studio’s end.

2/ Setup a channel and upload whatever you want, even it’s if 20 seconds clips we don’t care, some sites do well with that. Others have good success with 2 3 5 10 minutes.

3/ From this point your videos will be part of a reserved spot of about a third of the front page, where most of the traffic is concentrated.

4/ If you have old scenes that you don’t monetize anymore you can add them to the content program where you make money from any banner on the page.

5/ fingerprinting content may be a hard decision for certain studios because they have many affiliates pushing traffic through other uploads that may be authorized or not.

It’s up to them what they want to do but one thing is certain, sending your vids for fingerprinting puts an almost complete stop to their pirating (unfortunately for them, only our sites), and I feel that even 5 years later many studios still don’t understand this.

It’s all very similar to how Youtube works.


Xvideos may wish to keep in mind that both AVN and XBiz are defacto owned by Manwin.  While I am no fan of tubesites I can honestly say that when I have submitted a DMCA request to XVideos it has been promptly acted on.

AB 1576 Goes Down

AB1576 aka The condom law was passed on to the suspense file, essentially killing it.

While the biz has gotten a bit of a reprieve it really doesnt effect much, first Measure B is still in effect as is a statewide OSHA law that makes the use of condoms mandatory.  It isn’t going to stop AHF from filing complaints against the industry.

What it does do is that it gives us a chance to come up with some meaningful; self regulation , lets not squander it.


My Friend Richard Disagrees Reader Mail

Hey Mike, I don’t want to register but I want to send a comment for the post which you are welcome to put there with my name on in the comments or not. Thanks. No hard feelings, just want to register my disagreement.


This is the first time I  am commenting on a post in the many years I have covered the adult industry because I strongly disagree with your post putting any responsibility at all on the victim of an alleged crime even it is done in a way as you say not to diminish the guilt of the perpetrator. Everything you suggest she said and did was within the bounds of the law regardless of your opinion of its wisdom her health and safety were solely harmed by an alleged criminal assault. Because she is the victim of a criminal she was harmed and for no other reason. Nothing she did or may have done can be said to assist or bring responsibility on anyone other than the individual that chose to perpetrate a crime against her person. This point you are trying to make and say others in porn are saying amongst themselves seems to me only to suggest how much pornland has to learn about not blaming victims.

The Story That Wont Go Away or The Story That United Porn

It doesn’t matter how you look at it this story has taken on a life.   You have Dog The Bounty Hunter, Pawn Stars, Nancy Grace, Manwin and lots of others piling on and it is rather dominating the porn press.

Everyone wants War Machine caught, myself included and it has even spawned some controversy within porn.

I am the first to say that Christy didnt “deserve” what happened to her nobody does, ever. But I will also say what everyone else seems to know but doesn’t want to say, she does bear some responsibility, first of all she knew all along of Koppenhavers jail time for multiple assaults, she knew that he had beat up previous girlfriends and her friends had told her that this guy was bad news.  Finally in her own account she makes the statement, “he has beat me before, but never this badly” and he had told her at least on one occasion that he would kill her.

I do understand that it can be hard to get out of an abusive relationship, and that the law isn’t always helpful but ya have to take some responsibility for your part in allowing this to get to the point that it did.

Do not take this to exonerate Koppenhaver in any way shape or form, as I stated. had I been there and gotten the chance, I’d have put a bullet into his fucking pea sized brain.

My buddy Quasarman made the observation what do you expect when you date a guy that calls himself “War Machine”  next time date “Cuddle Monkey”

The good that comes out of this is that it raises awareness about this problem, and it is a problem, not just in porn but everywhere.  The sad thing is that while this will likely  finish Koppenhaver in the adult biz there are a dozen more in the biz, just as bad that get ignored….Because face it  you cant flunk out of porn.

It does strike me as odd that this dumb motherfucker can keep posting to twitter, yet law enforcement can’t find him…..


The Guy That Got Beat Up was MTV’s Corey Thomas

After this I’m pretty much done with this story until Dog The Bounty Hunter gets him (LOL) or something else happens but a lot of people gave been wondering eho the guy was.

I’m told his name is Corey Thomas and that he is in some MTV Reality show called “Megan wants a millionaire”

Why he didn’t immediately call the cops is anyone’s guess but he too was hospitalized with two  black eyes and broken nose.

Jonathon Koppenhaver aka War Machine is still on the run, if you know his whereabouts email me, I don’t want any reward I just want his dumb ass off the streets.
