We know what you're thinking: A porno begins when a guy in an '80s-era muscle car pulls over next to an impossibly buxom blonde whose vehicle has broken down by the side of the road, and they exchange quips that don't make sense, and then there's an abrupt cut and they're suddenly banging each other on a pool deck.
That is true. But actually, a porno begins earlier than that, when a director gets an email from an agent advertising the services of an adult film star. A local producer forwarded on this officious pitch from New Jersey-based agent John O'Byrne. His client, Ariana Fox, was coming to town.
The email was accompanied by ten photos of Fox in various stages of undress posing for the camera. The producer-- who didn't hire the porn star-- guesses her fee would've been from $200 to $300.
O'Byrne is the agent who represented Bieyanka Moore, the underage girl whose appearance in a hardcore film has sparked a lawsuit. O'Byrne's known in the industry for peddling very young-looking actresses such as Fox.
Which goes to show you: It's all fun and games until somebody's fifteen.
