Hustler opened the 2010 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo with the wedding of adult performers Eric John and Vicki Chase. The ceremony took place at 2 p.m. on Jan. 7 under the arch in the Hustler Video booth, which is located in the front and center of the Sands Expo Center at the Venetian Hotel & Casino.
Having the wedding in the Hustler Video booth appealed to both the couple and Hustler Video. According to John, “Once we decided to get married in Las Vegas, we couldn’t think of a more appropriate venue than AEE, and Hustler just fit the whole rock-and-roll, sexy mood we were trying to find.”
Chase added, “Both of us enjoy a great business relationship and friendship with everyone at Hustler – we can’t thank them enough for the support they have given to both of us individually and as a couple.”
John and Chase have enjoyed a whirlwind courtship that started when he met her at Chase Bank where she worked as a teller before getting into porn. The 24-year-old Chase made her porn debut in early November, while John, a former engineering executive at Boeing, is headed into his fifth year in adult.
“I saw her at the bank for a few months, it was a few months time that the relatonship grew up,” John said. “All the people at the bank knew what I did. I was kind of like a celebrity in there. They wanted to hear about what I was doing and apparently they talked about it all the time.”
John has starred in several Hustler Video features in recent months, including Axel Braun’s This Ain’t Beverly Hills 90210 XXX, This Ain’t Happy Days XXX: Fonzie Loves Pinky, This Ain’t Saved By The Bell XXX, and Letterman’s Nailin Palin. He also performs in Hustler’s Untrue Stories: Angelina vs. Jennifer, and the LFP/X-Play releases Not The Bradys XXX Pussy Power, Not Monday Night Football XXX, and TV’s Greatest Parody Hits.
In early 2010 Hustler Video will release This Ain’t Dancing With The Stars XXX, also featuring John, who is a native of Howes Cave, N.Y, west of Albany.
Vicki Chase’s first day in front of the camera included appearing in This Ain’t Beverly Hills 90210 XXX – so the newlyweds’ first credits for the same movie came under the Hustler Video banner. They both can be seen on the YouTube video trailer.
Axel Braun, who directed This Ain’t Beverly Hills 90210 XXX and earned a personal record 20 AVN award nominations for 2010, remarked: “Eric and Vicki are not only excellent performers, but also truly great people, and a real pleasure to work with. They will make a great couple and I couldn’t be happier for them.”
Jennifer Larsen, talent coordinator for Hustler, added, “We wanted our booth at AEE to be a celebration of all things Hustler, and what a more positive and fun way to kick off the show than with a wedding for Eric and Vicki.”
Eric proposed to Vicki on Dec. 17 and they got married her on his birthday.
“We’re totally on the same vibe all the time no matter what we’re doing and that means all aspects of my complicated personality,” he said. “If we’re on set, at home, taking care of the dogs, with her family, my family, she’s always the perfect other half of me no matter what we’re doing, and I actually think we truly understand each other.”
He continued, “This relationship is built on total honesty. She knew everything about me from the beginning. We have this whole complete life that’s just very rewarding at all levels and makes every day feel like a wonderful day.”
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE HAPPY COUPLE!
