March 30, 2012 — LOS ANGELES, CA — Penthouse Pet Tasha Reign is the newest music reviewer for Rock Confidential magazine. The weekly column on, titled “The World’s Hottest Music Critic,” features three to five single tracks by various artists or an entire album.

Tasha’s reviews will begin posting weekly on beginning April 3. The column will feature a mix of written and video critiques.

Rock Confidential Editor Jesse Capps states, “Forget everything you know about music critics! Tasha Reign is putting her sexy spin on music reviews by diving into her sexuality and letting you know what turns her on. She’ll be taking on new releases and digging deep into her catalog of favorite rock tunes for an exciting, sexy review each week. Tasha’s charm, enthusiasm, and rock n’ roll attitude is a perfect match for Rock Confidential.”

Tasha Reign balances her career as one of the fastest rising stars in adult entertainment with her undergraduate studies at UCLA. Though a women’s studies major, Tasha has completed three music appreciation courses at school. Whether analyzing Bach and Mozart by day or stripping to Nine Inch Nails and Def Leppard by night, Tasha Reign brings a unique perspective to music critique.

“I listen to everything,” admits Tasha Reign. “I feel like my tastes can best be defined as eclectic. There are good and bad songs in every genre of music, so I always try to keep an open mind, something I want to carry over into my reviews.”

Reign continues, “Music appreciation is subjective. What I may like, someone else may despise. Through my explanations of why a certain song resonates with me, I hope to reveal a bit more about my life and experiences with readers, from being an average American girl to my life as a Penthouse Pet and porn star. I am thankful to Rock Confidential for providing me with a platform to do so.”

News of Tasha Reign’s column for Rock Confidential was first publicized on Dave Navarro’s radio show, “Dark Matter.” Reign was a guest of the show on March 28, 2012, where she discussed her love of music and her plans for the column with the Jane’s Addiction guitarist.

Egypt Bans Internet Porn, Blocks Websites

leave a comment »

XBIZ reported yesterday that an Egyptian administrative court has officially banned all Internet pornography.

Egyptians are now reportedly prohibited from surfing online for any type of porn and the state has ordered all X-rated websites blocked, with the verdict citing “poisons in spreading immorality” that “destroy all religious beliefs, ethics and moral values” as reasons for the ban.

The ruling comes following calls for action against pornography in the past month from both Younis Makhioun, a Prime Minister of Egypt’s al-Nour Salafist religious People’s Assembly Transportation and Telecommunications Committee and Minister of Telecommunications and Information Technology Mohamed Salem.
