Seems that Manwins “golden touch” has expired. Pretty much all of the Manwin properties are in turmoil. Digital Playground, once a premiere company for high end movies is now just doing your standard low end porn and they have slipped into just another porn company, but more importantly their stable of contract girls are, for the most part revolting on them. About six months ago Stoya, who has an exclusive deal with Digital but not really a contract wanted to shoot condom only so Digital stopped shooting her but wouldnt allow her to shoot for anyone else either, tying it up in court and forcing Stoya to spend about thousands on her own lawyers to try to get out of it, eventually they settled. Bibi Jones wanted out of Digital but she had signed a standard contract that made her exclusive but DP didn’t have any obligations to shoot her on any regular basis so when she tried to leave they tied her up as well, She finally came back to DP but flaked on the first two shoots. Jesse jane is now said to be doing girl girl only and Kayden Kross is making similar noise. Riley Steele is out and Selena is not allowed to leave the state of Florida because of charges of possession of a controlled substance.
But it isn’t just DP, across the board Manwin has drastically cut production. The main guys that they buy from are based either in LA or in Las Vegas and they are all in mortal combat with the Las Vegas guys threatening to drop dime on the LA guys for not shooting with condoms and the LA guys threatening to dime out the Vegas guys for shooting in Clark County (Las Vegas) where porn production is ILLEGAL.
Word is these 4 main guys were getting 5,500 bucks for each scene they sold to Manwin.
