Los Angeles, Calif. – The Wicked Girls™ are taking a perceptive look at the evolving careers of adult entertainers in the new feature article On the Porn Film’s 40th Anniversary, a Thank-You to Deep Throat. Written by author and journalist Kristin Battista-Frazee, this well-researched look at the first forty years of X-Rated film-making was published this morning by The Daily Beast, the Newsweek-owned culture and opinion portal founded by former Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown.

Ms. Battista-Frazee’s illuminating story deftly contrasts the infamous 1972 film Deep Throat‘s funding and production with the techniques and policies studios like Wicked Pictures employ in creating content today. Special emphasis is given to the increasing control today’s performers exercise over their careers, from choosing their co-stars to, in many cases, writing, directing and appearing in their own projects.

“I’m very grateful to have had a chance to meet such talented, insightful and smart women who truly love their careers,” Ms. Battista-Frazee says of the time she spent with Stormy, jessica, Kaylani and Alektra. She also feels their message of female empowerment created a fascinating subtext for her story, which was published today in recognition of Deep Throat’s June 12th, 1972 theatrical release. ”The ladies’ unique stories and perspectives on the adult industry were highly informative and provided a wonderful way to honor the 40th anniversary of Deep Throat.”
