By the time you finish this sentence, an estimated 141,290 people will have glanced at online porn somewhere in America. And within the next 39 minutes, a skin flick, possibly featuring a local starlet, will be created and uploaded to the Interwebz. That’s because the online porn-making industry is a booming business here in the PHX as hometown honeys Taryn Thomas, Priya Rai, and Dylan Rider make flesh trade bank. These same sirens occupying your hard drive will be special guests at the two-day Arizona Pornstar Ball. Those who dig or dream of starring in adult films can rub elbows (but nothing else) with local actresses and superstars like Nikki Delano, Kayla Carrera, and Raylene during the event. During daytime, it's a convention, with vendors and meet-and-greets. At night it's a more debaucherous affair with strippers and hip-hop performances by Kool Keith, Dirty Nasty, and Gentleman Ether.
