Brony Porn, Porn Star CrossFit, And The Tranny Awards Gets A Name Change: The Adult Film Minute

Once per month (except for this month when it’s twice), Dr. Chauntelle Tibbals will be telling us a little bit about what’s going on in adult entertainment and why it should matter to you.

People often talk about porn like it’s in a bubble – totally devoid of any input from the wider world. This couldn’t be further than the truth! Just like you and me, people who work in the adult industry have multi-faceted interests, and – gasp! – some of those interests are informed by the wider world. Here’s some wider world-related stuff I noticed happening recently…

CrossFit Drop

CrossFit is currently everywhere, to the point that just about every town has an affiliate. Some have three. And recently, adult performer Derrick Pierce launched CrossFit Drop, a CrossFit affiliate with an all-inclusive mobile “out of the box” unit. [Editor’s Note: Have you ever noticed that there’s an absurdly high number of male porn stars named ‘Derrick?’ Discuss.]

Unlike the conventional spartan warehouse/“box” settings, CrossFit Drop provides exercisers with full-service training… outside! They offer bootcamps three days per week at various locations around LA, as well as private, corporate, and on-location instruction. The traveling gym comes complete with Olympic barbells, kettlebells, medicine balls, sandbags, and a pull up rig – pretty much everything a serious athlete would need.

When I heard about CrossFit Drop, I wondered why Derrick, who is an extremely successful and well-respected performer, would feel compelled to branch out in this way …so I asked him.

“Me not being twenty anymore, it had been a long time since I had had the opportunity to be a competitive athlete and I found that in CrossFit,” Derrick explained. “Once I realized that I could still be a relevant athlete and relate better to people as a coach because of my age, that was it.”
