Interview with a porn star: Angela Aspen on HIV, youth ministry and why pornos have plots

It's an odd thing when your interview subject casually mentions that you can Google her name and watch her get banged out. It's even weirder when it turns out to be true -- because I'm not going to lie: I did.

We're talking about the nuances of porn presentation, and according to Angela Aspen, you've got your feature films and you've got what she calls "gonzo," which is just the sex, minus the plots. "My gonzo clips are available for free," she says. "You can find them all over the Internet." But that, she says, is not what makes her special. What makes Angela Aspen stand out is her distinctly Colorado brand.
