Ed Powers Back from the Brink
HotMovies to Exclusively Debut First Dirty Debutantes Title in Six Years
Philadelphia, PA - After more than six years away from the business spent battling a life-threatening weight problem, Ed Powers, the most prolific producer of pro-am in the history of adult movies, is healthy again and making his long-awaited return. Known as the "original dirty old man" of porn, Powers has announced the continuation of his Dirty Debutantes line, volume 370, appearing exclusively on HotMovies websites including EdPowersVOD.com. The premiere is set for Wednesday, August 1st.
Powers began his career in adult as a hired gun more than 25 years ago, but said he ultimately decided it would be more exciting to do the filming himself. He would go on to produce more than 800 titles over the next two decades. He pioneered many now familiar pro-am techniques, including interviewing and then fucking the freshest female talent while making strong use of handheld POV shots.
But with the fame and the appeasement came tremendous weight gain. No amount of calorie-burning sex could solve what was quickly becoming a serious problem. By the time Powers shot Dirty Debutantes 369 in 2005, the 5'8" former dynamo was up to 300 pounds.
"My blood sugar was so high, 491, I should have been in a coma," he said in an Interview with HotMovies. "I was lethargic. I could hardly bend my knees."
Powers said he battled depression and anxiety and, because he didn't feel comfortable on camera, he stopped producing his popular movies. "I knew I needed a change or I might not be around much longer. It was a real wakeup call. That's when I got serious about my diet and working out."
He hit the weights. He did cardio training. He swapped simple carbs for the more complex variety and drastically cut the bad fats from his diet, learning to love a new way to eat. "I even enjoy fish now," he joked.
