Weekend Walk on the WildSide

Carter Cruise
BobLee
July10/ 2017

That fresh-faced girl smiling at you up top there.  Pretty as the proverbial speckled pup, isn’t she?  Her name is Carter Cruise.  She’s from Cary and studied pre-law at ECU.  More about her in a few minutes.  But first…

It started out as a pretty normal week-end. Blondie had a double handful of gardening/landscaping To-Dos. One involved “a strong back”, i.e. moi, moving a concrete birdbath. All the others were “puttering”.  We have learned over 33 years that is best done solitarily.

The Cardinals were primed to take a 2-1 series win over the Mets. I don’t like day games. I end up with nothing to look forward to when they are over.

Around 1 PM on Sunday, my weekend “got interesting”. Before the sun would set I would “cruise” the back alleys of both Sodom & Gomorrah.  Including those seedier areas tourists normally avoid. Especially those areas.

NOTE: That last paragraph is THE GRABBER. I now own your full attention for the next 500 or so words. Hehehehe…

This was The Day Raleigh either took a giant step “forward” OR yet another slip’n slide towards The Abyss.Bloody Marys

Brunching Raleighites can now purchase alcoholic beverages BEFORE NOON On Sundays. Beginning at 10:00 AM.

The folks that make Mr & Mrs T’s Bloody Mary Mix are delighted.  As well as the “mimosa” industry.

There IS a “mimosa” industry?

I would learn from an indignant local info-babe that The Brunch Booze Bill was economic salvation for 1,000s of area “service industry employees”. WHO KNEW!

My informant works for WRAL’s Jim Goodmon. UH OH!

Me and Jim Sr “have a history”. I ain’t a big fan of his. I have no reason to think Julia Sims Juia Simswould know or care about that… but maybe?

Julia Sims a.k.a “indignant WRAL info-babe” did not say if the 1,000s of service industry employees were among the MILLIONS WHO WILL DIE if Obamacare is repealed.

Or the …at least 80,000, maybe more that Jim Goodnon’s pal Rev. “Bully” Barber gets for his Hoot & Hates. At least according to Jim’s Toadie Peter Anlyan.

Maybe Peter Anlyan also counted those 1,000s of now prospering bartenders too?

So I see a tweet from “Julia” rejoicing over the Brunch Booze Bill dragging Raleigh kicking and screaming into the post-prohibition era.

I tweet that I am always amazed how much “being able to consume alcohol” matters to some people. I wasn’t being “critical”, just “amazed”.

NOTE: My annual alcohol consumption is minimal.  Between beer, wine, Bloody Marys and frozen Marqueritas, about a dozen drinks total per annum. But hey, I’m no tea-totaler as I informed Julia.

Julia then informs me she (1) had just attended church and (2) was headed to yoga.  OK.  “Attended church” establishing her Christian temperance creds which I never doubted. She never explained the “yoga” part.

She trumpeted how this was a great day for the afore-mentioned “service industry employees”. That is info-babe lingo for bartenders and cocktail waitresses.

We parried and thrusted a couple of more tweets.  Then she went dark… probably reaching her yoga place.

The Cardinals game started. I figured enough vice-oriented excitement for one day. Not so fast Bunky.

***

I get this e-mail from a DownEast acquainti who shall remain nameless for reasons to soon be obvious.  Did I know, he asked, that…

ECU has a For Real Porno Star alum?

Her Porn Star name is Carter Cruise.

(Yep… that smiling gal up top there).

Carter Cruise2

 

Selecting “suitable images” for this column was a challenge.  There are an abundance of pics to choose from.   Darn few passed the Don’t Give Ol’ Kennel a Coronary Test.

I knew that UNCCH had Haley Koch a.k.a. “the only Morehead Scholar to ever be pepper sprayed on campus” and later become an S&M Star on “the dark web”.

Duke, of course, has Belle Knox… just a girl trying to earn her college tuition using the gifts God gave her.  Bless her heart.

I was not up-to-speed on ECU’s addition to the Adult Film Industry. With ECU’s well-earned reputation as a Golden Corral Buffet of Coed Pulchritude should this be a surprise?  Move over Sandra Bullock.

Being an investigative Not-A-Journalist my curiosity was “aroused”. No pun intended.

What am I saying? I fully intended that pun.

My first thought was… does Julia Sims know about this? Should I interrupt her yoga to tell her? Better not.  She’s already kinda touchy.

My second thought was… what I will do for Primo Column Fodder.

My third thought was… how much of this am I gonna have to explain to Albert?

THEN IT GOT OMG-ier!

Not only was Ms. Carter Cruise an ECU coed from 2009-2013 majoring in psychology and pre-law… SHE GREW UP IN CARY!

Cary – “The Stepford of Wake County” – where painting one’s mailbox the wrong shade of beige can land one in the stocks on the public square.  Cary has a Porn Star.

My Column Fodder cup runneth over.

Carter Cruise’s Wikipedia page is herein LINKED.

It is PG-rated… sort of.

WARNING: There is a section at the bottom of the page listing all the AVN Awards she has won or been nominated for.  AVN Awards are the Oscars of the Porn Industry.

The descriptions of the various categories of awards are a mite too graphically descriptive if you get my drift.

This enterprising young Cary / ECU girl is quite talented indeed to qualify for awards in so many varieties of this cinematic art form.  She is not simply “a performer”.  Carter Cruise is a Rising Star in…

The #1 Most PopularCategory on the Internet.  Both in #s of websites, visits and BILLIONS of $$$ generated.

IF your curiosity takes you beyond her Wikipedia page please be aware that…

This is NOT the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders Tryout Show on CMT.

This is NOT going to lunch at Hooters with your buddies.

This is NOT the SI Swimsuit Issue.

This IS the Durham County Fair Hootchee Kootchee Tent on Monday night before the sheriff deputies shut it down…. except with pretty girls and better lighting.

I could tell you not to get too curious.  That might have the reverse effect.  Google Carter Cruise if you must, and…  Hang on Sloopy!

She was home-schooled in Cary before graduating from Cary High in 2009. Whether Carter garnered any Superlative awards at Cary or at ECU is not noted. The mind reels. One imagines her possible appearance at their 10th high school reunion in 2019 will be eagerly anticipated.

Blondie had a for-real trany – Jack > Jacque – show up at her 40th.

There are a few interesting quotes from her Dad. He “fully supports my career choice” says Carter. A BL Buddy was taken aback by that.

I explained that Carter’s original vocational direction at ECU was “to be a lawyer”.

Daddy Cruise was simply paraphrasing that old line…

“Don’t tell my mamma I’m a lawyer.  She thinks I play piano in a whorehouse.”

And with that, my Weekend Walk on The Wild Side concluded.

What? No “El Chapo” Guzman on the front porch selling magazine subscriptions?  Maybe next weekend.

    In PEI Canada on extended motor home trip with family who flies in and out. Now have GK’s.

    Shut off cellphones and limited WiFi. GD said that we were in forest and roughing it in a 41 ft. Upper end MH.

    The sorority sister’s comments about “Carter” being a sweet, church-going girl… who one day “just changed” seemed sort of standard in similar cases where a member of a group does a 180. …. everyone is SHOCKED!
    .
    I guess that could happen but “sweet church-going” to porn star is a pretty big leap. Of course we don’t know the timeframe of the transition.

      Apparently Ms Cruise is not being overlooked by them what peruse where she is featured. Ever notice when you drive by one of those cinder block XXX Book/Video stores, they ALWAYS have cars parked out front, always doing business and they NEVER go out of business. I don’t know nuthin’ about marketing porn but how do it survive when its free on the internet ??

    Some people just don’t care about anything but making $$$$ any way they can. I made the BIG MISTAKE of googling her. ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING AND SICKENING. I am so naive to actually see what I saw and think “is this for real…..can what I am actually viewing be on a computer?” THE GIRL IS SICK, but making much $$$$$$. I guarantee you that she laughs out loud if anyone mentioned hell to her. God rest her soul. By the way….#3……you did not have to explain it to me. (Ha!)

      The impact “that world” is having on “our world” is dramatic… and ever-increasing. Putting aside the individuals who produce it… actors, etc. The # of viewers / addicts is ever-increasing.

      A lot of the “performers” come from deprived backgrounds but many, like this girl, from “normal” middle class families who obviously are NOT normal at all.

        I wonder if her father, who says he supports what she is doing, looked at those pictures I saw that I hope I never see anything like that again as long as I live. I feel for him as well. You are so right….”the impact that the world is having on our world is dramatic and ever increasing.” How pitiful yet so true.

    Julia Simms wasn’t alone in touting the brunch bill. All outlets down east are on board as well. As for increased brunch business. Apparently $18 for $6 worth of eggs and fixins’ ain’t enough or $14 for a “craft cocktail” vs $7 for a mixed drink with the same ingredients.

    As for the other subject, according to my extensive research, the subjects are actually doing their own stunts. Thought your readers would like to know.

    BobLee, is there any difference between a hooker/escort… a stripper… a porn star?

    • BobLee Reply
      4 months ago

      My personal opinion- YES, the “job descriptions” for each of those occupations would be different. And the working conditions… and physical danger factor.
      .
      Is each looked down upon in the same way by “polite society” (which may be utilizing all three professions while “looking down” at all three). … A “stripper” in a roadside strip club versus a “high class Mens Club” would be “different”. A “hooker/escort” can run the gamut from truck stop BJs to 5-star hotel suites. … I guess there are also categories of “class” in the adult film biz too. All well beyond my knowledge base.
      .
      At its basest level maybe they are all the same. No clue how to rank the three in any better/worse ranking.

        I have no idea which level of Hell is better than the other, but they all fall into that same category if you found out your daughter was a Democrat. All a parent could do is ask what they did wrong, and rationalize that it could be worse…maybe.

          Interesting analogy and I do see the similarities.
          .
          A “former porn star” or “a former Lib/Dem” meets a “nice man” knowing that sooner or later she MUST reveal her sordid past. She delays and delays… the relationship gets serious… and he invariable discovers HER SECRET thru a 3rd party. Can he overlook her past… really?

    BL, Never really considered myself a prude but after this column and clicking on the wiki. page I may have to rethink. Reading that I got a little queasy thinking this kid is 26 and already been in 176 “adult” films as of 2015. How can this possibly end well for her. Her family must be something else. Her picture looked a lot older to me than 26. MAHA.

      I would imagine the “rigors” of that profession tend to quickly rob one of any “youthfulness” both physically and psychologically. Once “into it” for any length of time, how does one ever get out of it? I imagine it is a pretty insular society of “people in the biz”. Some “cult-like” elements involved?
      .
      Hard to judge the family without more info. Maybe “accepting her decision” was an alternative to losing her forever.

    The annual county fair in Oxford ceased many years ago. I guess the sheriff’s department who sponsored it took too much flack from the Baptist about the hooch show or some guy made a mistake and took his wife to the fair and word got out. It did provide entertainment for UNC football players for a couple of years.

    The stage name of the star attraction was Wild Cherry.

      That you recall “Wild Cherry” from 50 years ago says something about Miss Cherry and about impressionable young men leaving the innocence of adolescence.

    Oh my goodness. This girl was in my sorority….she is now a porn star. Yuck! Her real name is XXXX XXXXX. She got kicked out of our sorority once we found out she was doing porn. …. she was a church going, quiet, sweet girl and then around her senior year she decided to get into porn.

    Everyone was really shocked and confused – a complete 180 from the girl we had known…or thought we knew.

      Thanks for the info Elizabeth. I’m sure every stripper / porn star / hooker “has a story” and people who knew her “before”. For sure they all had “a before” life. This one seems to have come from a “normal middle class home” if there is such a thing as “normal” any more.

      Kudos to your sorority for having “standards” and sticking to those standards in a society that is becoming more and more accepting of “anything goes” life choices.

          Her Wiki page is pretty tame… other than “the categories”. Going to any other website with her name would REALLY put your ticker into TILT.
          .
          As I said to her sorority sister… every hooker / stripper / porn star has a “before story”. Were her parents SHOCKED? Sounds like they might NOT have been. Neighbors, classmates, et al all have “the girl I knew” stories I’m sure.

    Imagine who the “Carter Cruise” coulda been in YOUR HS class or adjacent classes. Don’t worry. It’s a perfectly healthy exercise. Come up with at least three names.
    .
    IF your spouse was a HS classmate… our class had about a dozen such unions. Most of which have endured going on 45-50 years… have your spouse come up with his/her list. I GUARANTEE you your lists will NOT be the same.

      It is not a threshold one crosses without considerable thought. There’s worse things a fellow can do… and certainly PLENTY of better ways to spend one’s time even “just a peek”.
