The surname Laine is quite a famous one as regards pornography
- especially so, I would suspect, if you're a fan of The Bloodhound Gang.
But talking about the porn industry and where it is now, rather than 10 years
ago when the aforementioned group rather graphically propositioned Chasey
Laine, there is really only one Miss Laine who is worthy
of lengthy discussion, and that one is Charlie Laine.
To say that Charlie Laine is in high-demand is certainly no
understatement. To also say that she frustrates a number of bigwigs within the
industry is probably true also. This strictly lesbian and solo only performer
is offered regular and high profile hardcore roles, but to date has only relented
once, citing it as one of the worst experiences in her life. Despite readily
admitting that she would make far more money if she took on hardcore roles,
Charlie has stuck to her guns admirably.
Charlie Laine started her career at 18 and it didn't take her long to find work with some
of the biggest names in adult photography - Suze Randall, Stephen Hicks
and Earl Miller all came knocking and she accepted all their
offers, although she wasn't always confident in her ability to make it as an
adult model or performer. Charlie felt her butt was too big
for someone so petite (Charlie Laine is listed as being 5' 3"), but what she considered
to a potential weakness clearly did not, and still does not, register with some
of the key players in the industry.
These initial shoots were a mixed experience for Charlie Laine.
She labelled Earl Miller an 'asshole' during an original test
shoot for Penthouse after he criticised her weight and complexion.
This, thankfully, did not put her off from shooting with the iconic publication
and she admitted to enjoying every other shoot she had done with the magazine,
with her being full of nothing but praise for the way they treat their models
Charlie Laine took things relatively slowly in the next 3
years or so of her career, looking to gain confidence at her own pace rather
than be rushed into making too many movies before she was truly ready. Knowing
full well that big-time offers would find their way to her when she was ready
to exert herself more, her languid approach paid off in February 2006 when she
became that month's Penthouse Pet. She continues to shoot occasionally
with the company to this day.
Rather than committing herself to a deal that would see her tied exclusively
to one label, Charlie instead tried to stay as freelance as
she could, accepting short-term contracts with many of the biggest companies
around. Securing contracts with the likes of Danni.com,
Wicked Pictures, Zero Tolerance, Digital Playground and many more besides,
she enjoyed the freedom of being able to work with whoever she wanted whenever
she wanted to.
She has, tentatively, made some moves to potentially move into the mainstream.
Having appeared in an episode of Fat Guy Nation for the National
Lampoon website as well as flexing her muscles in the World's
best Naked Women Contest, rumours have started to surface that
she is seriously contemplating retiring from the adult industry. It would be
a significant loss - she is one of the very few fully dedicated performers of
lesbian content around, and her movies are consistently sexy and interesting.
That major industry awards continue to elude her, despite her consistently
superb performances for a whole host of top companies, directors and photographers,
is the fault of an industry too often bogged down in handing out accolades to
its so-called 'Hardcore A-List' and not her. Who knows, maybe one day a successful
group will write a ballad for her too - and it might even be a good group as
