^ I agree, and trust me, I know many Lansky contract girls who have done a lot more (interesting) scenes in a shorter span than Mia Melano has done in a longer span.

^^ The only flaw in Greg Lansky's plan was to shoot so many scenes with her for Vixen! If he wanted her to blow up, he needed to get her on Blacked more than once. Maybe they did just that and are holding the scenes for a special occasion but the best talent should always shoot for the best site!

Mia's new scene is up at Deeper. Markus Dupree gets the honors of sticking his salami in her. He's not one of my favorites. I'm just not fan of his fucking style. Oh well. It is all about Mia.

Dunno, giving unfollow to all the other porn companies/directors and actors for no reason (other the cleaning up like she said and only following a few female pornstars and her contract company/producer), telling to a fan on Instagram she will stop her porn career soon and now being kind of indifferent to her new scenes (her promotion of her deeper scene kind of feels different and more because of her agent told her to do it)
makes the speculation about her retirement bigger and clearer.

^Yes, all that is true, but it's still not been confirmed. I've said before that she has all the hallmarks of a temporary presence in the porn business, and nothing has made me think any differently, but it's still not official.

This thread is 24 pages long and is about 1 page of news and 23 of speculation that she's retired or just about to! I take any scene as a bonus and this prevents frustration/disappointment! She'll do what she wants and quite right too.

^^ to cut it short, no one confirmed that she's retired, no one knows what'd happen in the next few months, i personally believe she'll retire as soon as her vixen contract ends. We know that she has at least one scene (the gg one) (if not more, cuz i think lansky won't leave her retire without some more scenes) to be released, i believe that she doesn't respond to anyone on social media, i hope she does a Q&A soon to clarify her situation for the fans or at least tell us what she's up to

^ It wasn't too rough, but certainly the rougher scene she's been in and, in my opinion, her best scene so far. Turns out all she needed was a better than average partner, and Jason Luv wasn't on his better days on her Blacked scene.

Manuel said that he didn't like Lansky's style but has shot a new scene for Deeper with Haley Reed, so hopefully we'll see him with Mia in the future.

She seems to have gotten a little hurt during the scene. Towards the end, she's using a band-aid on her right side. I hadn't noticed that before.

True. The first time we see the band-aid was at 31:12, but we see no band-aid before that, in the first piano doggy scene. How exactly do you get a cut during filming a scene?

Weird. At 25:12 there isn't a plaster on her right side. I wouldn't see why they would shoot the scene before the intro (tearing the nets, makeup, etc).

^
You're not wrong. Personally I only liked her first Vixen scene and her second Blacked one and that's mostly because she had chemistry with her partners and both actors both seemed into it and to actually enjoy it. The rest of her scenes, I can take or leave for a number of reasons.

If you don't mind me asking, a lot of people blame her for her lack of scenes, but isn't Lansky to blame instead or do the actors/actresses actually have a say in how much or little they film?

^ It's a combination of the contract and the star. If she only contracts for a few scenes then it's largely on her if she doesn't reach mass appeal with a larger portfolio. Lansky does have great production value but they don't advertise or promote worth a tinker's damn so it's partially on them for not keeping her name in the spotlight. Add in the nuance of her looks, her performances, her chemistry on set (as you pointed out) and that rounds out, largely, will this person be a rising star or a figurative one and done.

Personally I don't find her attractive so that's a bust, I didn't care for any scene she's done, that's a double bust, and Lansky's lack of promo for her appearances made me completely forget who she was. No kidding on that, I had to look her up to see who the hell she even was, and it was 'meh' and I moved back on.

I like real-looking actors no matter their size, sex or skin color. If anything the fact she's not stick thin is a plus for me. Too much plastic surgery or head-to-toe tattoos turn me off, so her looks are right up my alley.

I'll admit to not knowing how much (or how little) Lansky promotes but I do know she also does little to no self-promoting so it's a bit of a wonder to see just how long her thread here is! Wasn't she completely unknown prior to signing with him? To me, that would mean she either didn't care about how much/little she'd film when she signed on; or she really didn't know any better and just blankly accepted whatever Lansky's lawyers put on her contract.

Still though, it would be up to her to self promote or to be active enough on various social media or her own sites/other sites to do her part in how known her face/name is.

^ You hit on my biggest complaint with how Lansky does things - promotion and not knowing who people are.

His sites are all the same in that you don't know who is appearing until 3-days prior to the scene being released. So on 6/01 Alex Grey appears on BlackedRaw... nothing more than pixels to let anyone know who is next, today being the 48hr timer from the last scene we see that it's Chloe Temple appearing on 6/06. They'll post something on their IG/Twitter about it today then again on 6/06 to say it's been released but then radio silence for more or less every girl. Meanwhile they don't have anything else to say about Alex Grey, it's just on to the next one.When a new DVD is released they'll remind you that the 4-5 actresses on the DVD did actually appear on the site because by the time it comes out you've largely forgotten they were on the site unless they were a personal favorite. The girls rarely promote themselves, they don't 'follow' the male talent until the release is out, and if you were a huge Chloe Temple fan (in this case) you would have essentially no clue in hell she was even shooting with them. I didn't lurk on her social media to confirm it but it's been the case for everyone else that I do follow.

Bringing it back to Mia - her intro and scenes were subpar for me so she was easily forgotten. But as you pointed out her thread is huge compared to the amount of work she's done - it really is either a missed opportunity for a star that could have been so much more popular or it's a good case of a woman who wasn't all that interested in the industry who got out of it exactly what she wanted to put it. Depending where you stand on the issue it's good or bad.

^ I think your last few sentences hit the nail on the head. My impression has always been that she isn't that interested in a long career in the industry and is looking to get out exactly what she wants....and for me all I have to say is good luck to her. She owes us nothing and if she gets a few bucks to help her on her way on whatever she wants to do in life well good for her. It's about personal taste and I have always found her stunning to look at but others are into other things and that's cool. Would love to see her finish with a real bang and a Tushy scene but......I'll not hold my breath and so won't be disappointed if she doesn't!!

Personally, I think she's one of the best (actually, probably THE best) looking women ever to enter the industry. She has this incredible all-American, girl-next-door look, combined with the most amazing natural figure. She's just utter perfection, in my opinion. But she clearly isn't interested in a long-term career in porn. That's a shame, but if she doesn't want to keep doing it, you can't force her.

^^ The issue is that Mia Melano's scenes have been for the b-sites, the ones that aren't really popular. I think Greg Lansky just puts the hottest girls there to draw some attention to them but they don't get much anyways! If Lansky put her on Blacked more, then she'd get way more attention than she has been getting.

^ ×4

without going too much on a tangent, the thing about the promotion, I thing you’re absolutely right.

With the Lansky sites, all we get is 2-3 days of excitement when we know who’ll be the next girl until the scene drops. Once the scene drops, there is already the mystery about the next girl. This – in my opinion – doesn’t benefit the girl, but the solely the studio, as it keeps the interest in the studio alive, i.e. "who will be the next girl", "I guess it’s xxx, because yyy followed zzz on twitter", etc.

With Evil Angel studios you have a) the DVDs being announced a month before, giving the spectator one month of build-up. b) the upcoming section contains multiple scenes. Jules Jordan video has an upcoming section for the next 6 scenes, the EmpireX (HardX, DarkX, LesbianX, EroticaX) also have between 1 and 5 upcoming scenes.

This all is time for the actor and the fans to get the message out that something is coming and get the excitement going. It’s completely different from messages about "oh, btw, I have already a scene out"... An already released scene is – to put it bluntly – an old scene.

The same is also valid – again in my opinion – of that Vixen Angel of the year thing. Except for tacky lingerie, how does this benefit the actor? We don’t get new scenes – something that I simply don’t understand – and I’m not sure if that title is something other studios would be willing to advertise. Imagine a Evil Angel advertising a scene with "featuring 2016 Vixen® Angel of the Year™ XYZ... ". It’s not that those are Academy Awards.
The Vixen studio on the other hand can keep itself in the loop and being talked about, as people will guess who will be the next winner.


... ok, this was a bigger tangent than I originally intended.

, Sorry to keep harping on Lansky but if his promoting is so little, then why is he so well known or popular with actors/actresses? I mean, I'm a casual watcher, -if something catches my eye, I'll watch it- and even I know his name!
(Granted, I learned it from reading the old Lana Rhoades thread and now Mia's, but still, I know his sites).

To be honest, if all she wanted was the most money for the least (according to some, anyway) work, then she definitely did what was best for her. I'd be lying if I said something negative about that.

, agreed! It's the girl's own life. If she wants to stay in porn, then she will. If she doesn't, then she won't. Do I wish she'll stay? Heck yeah!

, is that your opinion or more of a fact that Blacked is more popular? I really liked her second Blacked scene but her first was atrocious. She was too busy posing and the guy was so lost in his head, he could have been doing an apple pie!

vov v, could the Vixen Angel title be a reason for a higher pay? Because, like you said, if it doesn't mean an actress is used more... I do assume it gives bragging rights!

Lex said it much better than I did - he self promotes but doesn't do much of anything for the performers other than use their name/image to draw traffic to himself. It's a legit move I suppose, the guy has to make money, but performers are quickly forgotten outside the 5-day window between when their 'upcoming' scene is depixelated and when the next scene is announced. The only token nod he gives is the Vixen Angel moniker which goes to one performer a month solely on Vixen. She'll get some hype... until the next one is announced. If you go to the Angel site and scroll down you will be surprised who was an Angel in the past because not much was said past her announcement. But this isn't why I think he's shit. His production values are great but I'm done blindly subbing to a site and hoping for a good scene when his lack of promotion and gag order contracts hurt the industry in my opinion.

Lansky raised the bar with production value, near zero raceplay in IR scenes, and new niche sites that drew a large pool of performers that were established and some relatively unknown or on the fringe of mainstream exposure. That's great for his brand but I don't have loyalty to sites or networks but rather to the performers. Even the paltry $10/mo he is able to get (which says something) isn't worth it to me because you'll never know who is going to be shown and their current track record across all his sites has been poor for a long time. Think about it on a scene by scene basis - you pay roughly $2/scene on his sites - go back through and look at his recent updates and honestly assess how many you would have purchased if the only way to see them was to get them was via $2 PPV method. If it's every single one then the sub is worth it, if not then you'll see (strictly speaking for yourself) what the true value of his sites are. The only outlier is if a performer you value personally is shown and you're willing to pay $10+ strictly for her scene alone.

Say what you will about Dogfart, but you know approximately the next 10-12 updates on their network. The days aren't set in stone, and they slip some new ones in between, but for the most part you know what and who to expect. Brazzers gives you the next eight updates, typically four day's worth. Bangbros shows approximately five of the next 7-8 upcoming scenes but they tend to slip others in unannounced as well. JulesJordan has typically 6-8 with actual release dates listed, and he too adds scenes unannounced. I recently subbed to Nubiles because they showcase their models over a 7-10 day period alternating between ALL of their photo/video content in a relatively short span. They posted content I wanted/needed (>.<) so I subbed and happily paid for the content when it was released even though nothing else upcoming or recent was of interest - give me the content I want, without dragging it out, and you'll get your asking price from me EVERY single time. The same goes for the softcore OnlyTease network - you have to sub for four months straight to get the 'VIP' content unlocked... I wanted the content so I dropped $35/mo for four months to get it, no questions asked.

So for me, I follow my favorite performers with a drone-like, nearly compulsive persistence. I'll sub to a site where they content if I know when and what I'll see from the model/models in question which allows me to support both the models and the sites that showcase them. But if your business model is built around not telling anyone who is going to appear on your site until a few days beforehand, if it's to drag out content for month's on end with nobody allowed to talk about it, or if the quality of your talent is horribly inconsistent for weeks on end... GTFO I'll get it for free when it pops and support the models on their personal sites. That's not popular here, but it's true and the industry-types who complain the loudest about piracy typically aren't offering up content worth paying for in the first place, or so I've seen.

tl;dr I overthink things >.<

I suspect that Lansky's doing just fine financially. I have a feeling that he knows what he's doing from a business standpoint.
My guess is that the same is true for Mia Melano. This is probably how she prefers to do it and she's likely happy from a financial
standpoint so far.

Personally, I wish she'd shoot more, but that's a different matter.
