The Sexual Liberation of Anna Lee. Get liberated here:
The incomparable Eddie Powell cut this trailer, shot the film, and was my main collaborator on this project. I don’t say it enough but he has been the best working partner and mentor in this business I could EVER ask for.

Anonymous asked: Hey Jacky. film Incestuous And Having Sex With The In Laws wonderful wonderful movie.. How do you spend your typical day ? And thanks to the love and romance in the movies Jacky Good bye And a beautiful day to you
Thank you so much! I loved Having Sex with the In Laws. It remains my favorite of all of the Tabu Tales films.
Logan Pierce and Jayden Taylors from - Having Sex with the In Laws.
My typical day is spent working out, reading the news, writing, brainstorming, freaking out over my life and all the mistakes I’ve made, writing, burning incense, self flagellating, more writing, criticizing my writing, obsessively hating on my writing, twitter, making dry, overcooked chicken, watching true crime shows (like 48 Hrs. or Dateline on ID, which I have DVR’d hundreds of), going to bed. Repeat.
Or just a lack of original ideas?
Their movie that is just releasing.
Our movie that released months ago.

Anonymous asked: I'm a boy and love your work immensely because unlike most porn videos or movies I actually finish your movies because I'm captivated and enslaved by your story filled plots. How did u become a gud writer? Where did you go to college? I want to write in the future help me with some gud colleges where I can "hone*" my craft..
Thank you, I am so glad that you enjoy the stories…above all else, story is the most important thing to me and it’s what can make or break the sex.
I actually don’t publicly talk about where I went to undergrad, but it was a top university that provided me with a very cookie cutter education. Just so you know, it wasn’t college that turned me into a good writer…it was being tuned in to people that did. I’ve found that the best writers seldom talk about themselves, but are more-or-less engaged in the lives of others. They find something interesting in everything and everybody. They see the contradictions in human behavior. They never stop asking questions.
I have a wealth of stories and characters in my head…all inspired from strangers whose brains I picked in line at Starbucks to lifelong friends who I’ve spent years getting to know.

On set of Torn with Remy LaCroix and Steven St. Croix a story that was loosely inspired by the marriage of two of my closest friends (who were the product of an extra-marital affair).
The best education you can give yourself is to write and write every day…and if you are brave enough to put your writing in a public forum, it will help you see what resonates with certain audiences and what doesn’t. A lot of my writing was public before I ever started getting paid for it…and I learned more in the court of public opinion about how to tell stories than I ever did anywhere else…especially in college.
I’m not discounting school…because what you learn in school does provide you with a wealth of experiences that you’ll take with you the rest of your life. But whether you go to Yale, community college, or no college at all…a good writer is born from an ability to tell stories…and that comes from taking the time to be inspired by the ones all around you every single day.
Good luck and thank you so much for reaching out!
Yesterday I had the sincere pleasure of shooting an old friend, Michael Vegas and a new friend, Simone Sonay for New Sensations’ Tabu Tales.
Michael is somebody who used to work pretty regularly for our studio until the last year…when I think he only got booked once or twice. The reason had nothing to do with him or his ability. There are heaps of variables about why people are booked a lot and then not booked for a while: they are shot out, the studio is shooting specific projects that the performer isn’t the right fit for, the producer wants to use another performer.
Michael Vegas is one of the only performers who never once gave Eddie Powell, myself, or anyone at our studio a bad attitude because we hadn’t booked him in a while. In fact, he never even mentioned it. The first words out of his mouth whenever we’d connect with him at AVN or XBIZ or other industry events, were always, “How’ve you been” and never “Why don’t you hire me anymore??”
Taking casting decisions personally is honestly a waste of time and energy…and complaining and bitching about it certainly doesn’t inspire ANYONE to hire you.
alanbnogueira asked: Hi Jacky, I think you don't know me [:-P], I am a huge fan of your work. And as I follow your posts here I saw you talking about distributors restrictions and how those restrictions are a kind of sabotage of artistic intentions for a work. And I would love to know from you, If you had the chance to made a movie in an independent way, with freedom and etc. How this movie look alike?
I tend to keep my creative ideas pretty close to the vest, but what I will tell you, my friend, is that I would give performers (those who are passionate about rougher more aggressive sex) the ability to be freer within their sex scenes. I would push the boundaries and limitations within sex even farther…especially within BDSM films. I would play around with sensory deprivation and force verses consent even more.
These are just a few areas I’d explore, without getting too specific. One day, I will produce this kind of film…when I have the finances to do so and when I am the sole decision maker to do so.
For now, I will explore relationships and sexuality within the parameters I am given…like my latest release The Sexual Liberation of Anna Lee, releasing March 10th.

jremydeaton asked: You (and your team) do a great job in removing the cliché of porn (which I'm sure you're proud of), as well as presenting people with a more realistic representation of sexual encounters. However, if given the opportunity; what MORE, "true to life", romantic, situations would you personally like to project to your audience in order to remove that standard cliché even more. I think JackStJames could do that. I ask the questions... Expect more.
Great question! There’s so much that I want to do. Depicting anal sex in more romantic settings would certainly be a place I’d like to delve further into. Eddie Powell and I have traveled down the slippery slope of “couples anal” with The Submission of Emma Marx, but I’d like to direct even more anal scenes for couples. There’s nothing wrong with hardcore anal, but for the anally intimidated, the rougher anal scenes often do more to dissuade than persuade people to give it the ‘ole college try’.

Above: Penny Pax in The Submission of Emma Marx, uses anal plugs to help her body to adjust to her first anal experience.
I’d also like to explore more with places of ejaculation. On the face. In the mouth. Etc. Again, I want to do as much as I can to normalize all sexual practices no matter how “taboo” and “deviant” mainstream society deems those practices to be. It’s all about creating as much of a sexually progressive society through my work as humanly possible.
If you haven’t already seen it, check out Dr. Golland going head to head with Brooke Baldwin from CNN about the “Women in Porn” and “Slut Shaming” issue. Baldwin does little to hide her disdain for the porn industry - evident by her quick dismissal when Dr. Golland shifts the conversation to the positive changes being made within the adult industry.
I wish that more news reporters would look beyond their preconceived notions about the adult industry being a negative cesspool filled with female degradation and abuse…and actually consider the possibility that they might be wrong.
Where are the exposés about porn cultivating sexual expression among a myriad of groups? Where are the exposés about how more and more women are being empowered (truly empowered) by the work they are doing in the adult industry? Where are the exposés about the growing number of therapists seeking pornography out as a tool to help couples facing challenges in their sexual relationships?
Perhaps it is too scary and too real for journalists to acknowledge that sexuality and sex don’t follow a traditionalist’s rulebook anymore.
*There is also a great shout out to me and my work with New Sensations by Dr. Golland near the end of this video. Being mentioned on CNN is definitely a first for me. Wicked cool. Thanks, Michelle Golland!
colormegangrene asked: Hello Ms. St. James, I would just like to commend you for the fantastic work that you've done in the porn biz. Your works are the perfect balance of sexy and art, it's amazing! My favorite work of yours to-date is Temptation of Eve because it features my two favorite stars, Xander and Remy, and it also highlighted their acting prowess. I just hope you'll have them both on one of your projects soon. More power! :)
Thank you so much! I am so glad you liked the Temptation of Eve. I believe it was some of Remy and Xander’s finest work to date. It also happened to be one of my favorite scripts because it was inspired by one of my favorite playwrights, David Mamet, and his play Oleanna.

The mainstream world has been abuzz about the adult starlet from Duke University who recently wrote an article in XOJane.com, defending her decision to work in the adult industry to pay for her tuition.
This young woman expresses many of the same beliefs that countless women in the adult industry have already vocalized in various publications and media outlets over the past several years. But those articles never created the stir that this Duke University starlet has. A woman currently studying at a top university while working in porn is more story-worthy, simply because it appears to be altogether contradictory. I mean, you can’t be college educated and have a career in porn! It’s just not possible! #Sarcasm (Does mainstream media have any idea how many graduates of top universities work in porn today? Many of those graduates being women.)
I was listening to a conservative talk radio station yesterday, and the host actually commented on how blown away she was that this porn starlet used “big words” like “patriarchy”. Really? Patriarchy is a big word? The host guffawed over the idea that a girl from Duke would work in porn. “She can’t be that smart if she works in porn. How did she get into Duke?” It’s mind-boggling just how stupid and idiotic people can be…especially people manning their own talk radio shows.
I digress. What is important to acknowledge is that this young woman has been given a platform to express intelligent, thought-provoking ideas about what it means to work in adult and why many woman have chosen it as a profession (not been victimized or forced into it, as many would like to believe).
When you’re dealing with the masses, many of whom are pornography-ignorant, one’s educational background DOES hold a great deal of power and influence over the listener. Most people in the masses give an extra listen to a person who is a graduate of Harvard, Brown, Stanford, and yes, Duke. If somebody went to a top school, they must know what they’re talking about, right? #Sarcasm. But seriously, at least people are listening. And in this case, this Duke adult starlet does know what she’s talking about.
I applaud this young woman for bravely deciding to go public about her decision to work in porn and how she is using it as a means to pay for her ridiculously exorbitant tuition. I applaud her for being a voice for so many of the women in the adult industry whose opinions are often discounted simply because “they work in porn.” When you precede “porn star” with “Duke University Student” the world listens. And it has…
I can’t seem to go anywhere online without stumbling upon an article about her. Don’t believe me?
The list goes on.
Here’s to using one starlet’s Duke University education - to get more people talking about the adult industry and empowering ourselves in our sexuality.
bebe92123 asked: Hey Jacky....What is the most exciting sports event that you played or watched?
The sports I excelled at when I was young all involved running. Cross Country, Track, Indoor Track. The most exciting race I ever ran was at an Invitational. I ran the 800M and won (not even aware I was in the lead). When the race began I was stuck in a bad position behind a bunch of girls and I had to run towards the outside of the track initially to get in front of them. When I finally had a chance to break away from them, I thought there was still somebody in front of me. I was so hyper focused on my individual race that I wasn’t aware that I was the one in the front. When I crossed the finish line, I actually looked down at the rope as I crossed it and thought, “I didn’t know they do this for second place!” Ha! It was a great race and one I always think back to. I think it is indicative of my personality…focusing on the work and not the end result. Although, the end result was pretty damn near awesome!
The most exciting professional sports event I watched, would have been when the Rams played the Redskins in the early 2000’s at FedEx Field. I am a diehard Redskins fan, but at the time Kurt Warner was QB for the Rams and he has served as a huge inspiration in my life (not for his religious beliefs but for his approach to athletics and his overall positivity even in the face of defeat). The second he stepped on the field I was overwhelmed by this sense of excitement. Watching one of the best QB’s of all time play a game right in front of me was like nothing I’ve ever experienced. I am not sure anything will top that…except if I ever have the opportunity to watch Peyton play.
This movie is creeptastic. Karmen Karma and Van Wylde give a performance that left myself and the crew speechless. You won’t want to miss this one! Strong scenes all the way around! The movie streets March 6th! Check it out.
After her naive son continually mistakes her provocative behavior for harmless flirtation, a sexually frustrated stepmother unleashes a physical seduction on him that he can no longer deny (Cherie Deville and Logan Pierce). An insatiable girl, obsessed with her stepbrother, reaches a breaking point when she holds him hostage until he agrees to fuck her (Karmen Karma and Van Wylde). When a man sets out to teach his inexperienced stepdaughter the art of pleasing a man, she quickly falls prey to his advances (Sara Luvv and Steven St. Croix). A self-centered young woman finds herself blackmailed into sexual favors when her stepbrother hides her most prized possession (Presley Hart and Xander Corvus).
