HwcIKLos Angeles, Calif. – (July 11, 2013) – Long known for identifying itself as “the most trusted source for news and information,” is giving readers around the globe a compelling look behind the scenes of adult entertainment in “A Lover and a Fighter: The Life of a Porn Star.” In the story, photojournalist Chris McPherson and writer Abbey Goodman follow Wicked Pictures contract star jessica drake throughout the production of Derrick Pierce’s “Tuff Love,” crafting a multi-faceted look inside the life and career of this charming industry powerhouse.

Ms. Goodman shares simple yet powerful insights from jessica that say as much about her commitment to her craft as they do of her concern for the industry she loves. Written after the County of Los Angeles Safe Sex in the Adult Film Industry Act (“Measure B”) passed requiring the use of condoms and other provisions, she notes that while Wicked is the industry’s only condom-mandatory studio, jessica and actor James Deen were among the legislation’s most visible – and vocal – critics.

In addition to providing an overview of jessica’s daily life on and off the “Tuff Love” set, the story also discusses her career in sexual wellness. “In addition to performing seven roles a year, drake works as a ‘sexpert’ and sex educator. She writes and directs a line of instructional videos for women and couples” – the AVN & XBIZ award-winning DVD series “jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex.”

For her part, jessica couldn’t be more pleased the article’s fair and balanced approach.

“When the adult industry and mainstream media collide, it’s often a concern that we may not be portrayed honestly, and for that reason I’ve been very cautious in the past,” she reveals. “I decided to allow CNN onto a set, into my home and into my daily life in order to give the world an unbiased look at the life of an adult performer. Abbey, Chris, and everyone at CNN did such a great job on the piece that I’m absolutely ecstatic to see the finished project. I think this captures who I really am. I’m grateful to Wicked for allowing me the opportunity, and to CNN for the amazing experience.”
