NO pornstar should be able to market products that kids can purchase, ESPECIALLY linking it directly to their pornstar stage name. Imagine a boy at school whose mother bought these Young Guns underwear for their son without knowing the brand name is associated to Porn Valley and pornography. Another boy who knows what the brand name stands for tells him where they’re from when he notices the brand name on the waist band. Now the young boy will head to the internet to investigate for himself what he’s wearing and he will think it’s okay because his parents bought them for him. Now he’s looking at porn. The whole process took a matter of minutes to propagate and Tommy Gunn’s underwear just ruined another young man’s life. This would be happening EVERYWHERE. This is how they get to the children!!
I found this Playboy shirt in KMart a couple of weeks ago. Why is KMart selling Playboy when it is a family store??
You can’t have any links between porn, Porn Valley and pornstars with anything to do with children. It’s illegal, unethical and immoral. It links children to Satan and his followers. No good can ever come of that. If these pornstars cared ANYTHING about children, they would keep them off limits and keep their products and names in the adult world where it belongs!!
You also have to ask yourself why these pornstars keep posting images of themselves holding and shooting automatic weapons. We are seeing an increase in these photos. If performers want to “Make Love, Not War” as they constantly profess, why does it appear that they are stockpiling very dangerous weapons and posting themselves in aggressive photos like they are trying to intimidate people?? And . . . Kayden Kross reported HERE that she and other pornstars had weapons and shooting lessons from a Bulgarian police force while a Washington official met with Bulgarian officials about cyber security, AT THE SAME TIME!!
BTW, are they also stockpiling weapons at their Porn Bunker?? All I know is we’ll see the truth of who’s supporting Porn Valley if mainstream media and news sources begin to promote this evil idea!!

Monica Foster commentary: Tommy Gunn has been around for a long time, and considering that “porn star power” of which he wields, there’s a multitude of products he could successfully market – towards ADULTS. Don’t ask how or why I even came across this tweet:
The fact is: NO PORNSTAR needs to market ANY products (especially underwear) to children. Children do not need to even be AWARE of the concept of porn – let alone porn STARS. The mere concept of pornography instantaneously sexualizes a child’s mind and that’s just plain wrong. Growing up in our society is difficult enough for youngsters, the last thing a child needs to think to himself is “I wanna fuck like Tommy Gunn”.
Tommy Gunn, think before you take aim…because you never know who’s target range you could wind up in.
What’s gonna be next? Corsets and garters for toddlers? Who’s gonna market that? Jesse Jane? Tori Black? Isis Taylor?
Tommy Gunn, the 2011 XBIZ Male Performer of the Year, is launching his signature line of Tommy Gunn Underwear this Saturday in Canada.
Gunn will be presenting the first pieces from his new men’s and women’s Tommy Gunn Collection at a special appearance from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Ice Gear store at the Vaughan Mills Mall in Concord, Ontario, about 11 miles from Toronto.
Gunn told XBIZ that he has designed three styles of bottoms and three styles of tops for both men and women for the launch.
“We’re trying to line it up with Valentine’s Day [on Feb. 14],” Gunn said. “We thought this was a good time to launch with the holiday coming up and everyone celebrating relationships and romance. Everybody seems to get a kick out of the concept.”
Gunn said that not unlike wearing other name brands, wearing his stuff is a fashion statement.
“The thought behind the Tommy Gunn Underwear is that if people know who I am, that means they’re a fan of the industry and the nature of the entertainment, if you will,” Gunn explained. “People who knowingly sport the Gunns, or the Tommy Gunn’s, will send a message that they’re a little more adult. It’s underwear that says something. If they’re sporting Tommy Gunn’s, they know what’s up.”
Gunn, who is in his eighth year as one of adult’s elite performers, is far from a newcomer to the apparel industry. He got into designing clothing in the ’90s while he was a traveling Chippendales dancer.
“I entertained women for years being a dancer, and there was a need for some costuming, so I basically pulled the sewing machine out of my mother’s closet, dusted it off and said let me learn how to sew and figure out how to make some of these costumes myself,” Gunn recalled.
He started making some swimwear and dancewear for women and turned it into a side business in the tri-state area of New Jersey, Delaware and New York.
“Then I moved to Florida and saw there was even more of a demand,” Gunn said.
“I made them costumes for their gig at The Doll House in Pompano Beach in 1997 and 10 years later I ended up working with them both [in porn],” Gunn said.
He also designed pieces for a couple of fashion shows and music videos in the early 2000s.
“Then I had a bad run-in with an investor and put the whole clothing thing on the backburner,” Gunn said. “After getting into the adult business and developing a name for myself I thought this clothing thing might be something to revisit and I decided that underwear was a good place to start. It’s clothing that we all wear. It’s the first thing we put on and the last thing we take off. It’s an intimate thing and everybody wants to feel sexy.”
Gunn said he found Ice Gear, a fitness apparel manufacturer, through a business partner and made a deal with them to do his manufacturing, while he does all the designing. He has samples of the collection, which is already becoming known as “Gunnderwear,” on his official websiteTommyGunn.com.
“The name Tommy Gunn really lends itself to a lot of marketing and advertising slogans,” he said. “And I’m actually modeling some of the stuff. By doing that, people see that I believe in the product.”
Gunn’s design talent will also be on display in the upcoming “Spartacus” epic that will be released later this year by Wicked Pictures; he made 90 percent of the gladiator costumes and weapons used in the film that he co-produced with Marcus London and executive producer Miko Lee.
After this weekend’s debut, Gunn will look forward to hosting a launch party for his friends in the adult industry, as well as conducting a model search for new Gunn Girls.
