South Florida’s Sexy Adult Secret

MIAMI (CBS4) – For years California has been the leader in producing adult films. But in the last few years South Florida has been taking a larger portion of the porn pie.

“I have been running a porn company for the past five years,” said Collin O‘Neal, who runs, World of Men, an adult film company out of South Florida.

They shoot all over the world in exotic locations, but sometimes O’Neal takes advantage of the scenery in South Florida.    

“We try to pretend that nobody has sex. We just happen to be filming it,” said O’Neal who sat down with CBS4’s Jorge Estevez in his South Florida apartment. Even though O’ Neal says he has left the business and is currently selling his company, more businesses want in. They want to take advantage of South Florida’s exotic locations.

“There is a lot filmed in Florida,” said adult actress Felicity Jade. “It is hot and humid here. Sex is hot and humid.”

Jade works for Girlfriends films which just wrapped three films – all shot in south Florida.

“We rented a huge mansion. We shot everything inside,” said Jade.

With South Florida as the back drop, more and more adult movies are being made here with adult actors like Jade who not only work in Florida but also live here.

“Florida is the only other place where adult stars came come and film besides Los Angles, said Jade.

More proof of the adult industry’s impact, is Exxxotica, the nation’s leading convention on romance love and sex. It began in South Florida back in 2006. Each year, 20,000 people watch as exhibitors showcase the newest adult products and porn stars meet their fans.

“When I first moved here two years ago, there was a hand full of companies. Now there are pages of companies,” said Sarah Jay who has been in the business for more than a decade and works closely with the Exxxotica convention.

Sarah owns, and also graced the cover, of Pumps-n-bumps Magazine published in South Florida. It showcases the women of Exxxotica which makes its return to Miami Beach on May 20th.

“The more people that come here to be in the porn industry the bigger it gets. The more it grows the more people will come,” said Sara Jay.

But is filming people having sex legal?

“The bottom line of it is that all pornography is legal until it is declared obscene by a jury,” said Daniel Aaronson, Vice President of the First Amendment Lawyer’s Association. “As long as the community in which you are shooting pornography in, accepts it, then it remains pornography and not obscenity and it is lawful.”

So far the south community hasn’t made shooting pornography an issue.

“Because it is such a quiet industry, it hasn’t made our radar other than the fact that we just know that they are there,” said Delrish Moss, a commander for the city of Miami Police Department.

Actors agree the secret is blending in.

“If you make a little bit of noise then you may dig up some problems,” said O’Neal.

But until the problems get dug up, adult film shoots continue to boost the economy.

“They are bringing in money to the local people. People get the money and spend it locally, so it helps the local economy,” said Jade.

So until people make enough noise to stop it, it will continue to be a legitimate business with a profit margin that keeps consenting adults coming back for more movie shoots right here in South Florida.

    I would like to watch the whole report, the promo was fascinated, it all depends with the way you look at it. If they are not harming anybody why not, many married couple have one of those movies at home.

  12. William Llanes says:

    This report was fantastic, well written. Thank you CBS4 for having the balls to disclose what goes on in our backyard. If you don’t think this sort of stuff is going on in South Fl. you are living under a rock!!!!!. This is a business like any other business, providing jobs and paying taxes. I agree that we should not be clapping about this, but who are you to judge? I am still waiting for the on-line video, are you guys sleeping in that department?

  13. Fajadi Yesso says:

    I saw the promo but missed the show last night. Are you going to have a repeat/update of the story or where can I find it online? The porno industry is moving in and I am glad that you are telling the story.

    What’s the beef? Porn is legal. Right or wrong The Supreme Court of the United Sates under Chief Justice Earl Warren redefined “Free Speech” to include pornography as a human right, with little ground for challenge. I enjoy some porn, especially in the mild form offered by Girlfriends Films and its contract star Felicity Jade aka Prinzzess. I understand the controversy, but its remedy has long ago gone away. Blame the Supreme Court!
