I love it, and I want everybody else to know about it.” Ash said she has “had so much fun” with the show, noting that she loves to interview “beautiful adult performers, try to ask them unorthodox questions and try to show them in a different light than people usually get to see them.” She noted that her “callers are amazing and they reveal things about their sexual deviance that they’ve never told a single soul.” She said she tries to help her listeners “make their fantasies come true, because that’s how I got into the adult industry in the first place… I didn’t have a fantasy of my own. So I looked at other people’s fantasies until I had some of my own.” Asked why her listeners are so open with her, she replied, “I think it has a lot to do with how anonymous radio can be. People love to tell me things because I make them so comfortable.” Second, Green asked about her openly bisexual nature. Ash said she discussed her sexuality on Vivid Radio and was “so blessed that people were so open to it.” She noted that as a teenager she had “a girl friend before I had a boy friend.” She also noted that many politicians who are against sexual practices that are out of the norm “are usually into it themselves.” The Sean Green radio show reaches 225 million listeners weekly. on over 500 stations across the United States.

Sorry!” In her story Taylor wrote, “Despite fortuitously trying to indicate otherwise, the last time we checked, Farrah Abraham still had those two Vivid Entertainment pornos out there, and that makes her a porn star. Right? Of course it's right -- you believe that correlation and understand it because you're a well-rounded individual who knows the meaning of actual words, not just grunts and groans about pretty trees and unfair book deals. However, according to our inside sources, Farrah is still insisting -- despite all evidence -- that she's not a porn star.
