September 2016 Explicit Pioneer Showcase: Lex Steele
The times of today’s world has brought us many different types of pioneers to the adult industry. There have been psychologists, nurses, engineers, corporate executives but never had I seen a Wall Street businessman before I met Lexington still, or as he prefers, simply Lex. Mr. Steele has brought us some of the most amazing innovations in adult entertainment.
He is a sound business man who has seen everything there is to offer when it comes to this world we all love as fans, performers and people. Lex Steele is one of the reasons there are lists, articles, spotlights on the world’s smartest porn stars. Lexington shed light on something that people did not really know about our industry, that there is genius, honesty and hard work behind the people and it’s productions. Lex helped to solidify the business model that the industry continues to improve day in and day out. These are just a few reasons why he is our featured pioneer for the month of September. For his picture should be next to the definition of pioneer in Websters Dictionary.
Hard work is no stranger to Lexington Steele. He has demanded it from himself and his colleagues since his high school days. The mind that this man possess not only granted him access to such amazing place of higher learning like Morehouse College, it also took him to the media collegiate school of excellence that is Syracuse University. The fact that this man was accepted to these two schools speaks for not only his intellect but once again, it shows a dedication to success that I do believe was berthed in these wonderful places that set you up for the journey that is life. He double majored in both History, which I can tell you being a History major myself, is not an easy task. There is a reason people loathe History as a class in all areas and times of learning, it is a difficult subject to master, one that has more coarse requirements than almost any other degree. If that was not enough, Lex also majored in African-American studies and soon began a venture into what he thought my be the rest of his life so to speak.
After gaining all the wisdom he could, Lex set forth to make his mark in something that was challenging but also lucrative. I can only imagine the offers that this man was getting day in and day out. It makes me indeed wonder where he spent his internship because I know he had to turn heads in more ways than one. This native New Jersey-ian did what I think anybody would, he became apart of the Wall Street machine. Now most people who are not privileged enough to know how hard it is to land a job there must know this, the biggest recruiters in any college, public or private in this nation, are the Wall Street firms. A lot has been said that is bad about that but what people fail to realize, in a capitalist society, they are needed and have been needed for over a hundred years to continue the American way of life going. That is just a fact of this nation and the one thing you as an American should rest easy about, is that the brightest minds in this country are working on Wall Street. I myself had many friends recruited to Wall Street out of college. These were good people like Lex, who were out to make a difference not only to make some money. I myself find that the brightest angle of Lex Steele’s story, his ascension into a world few know and very few survive to talk about it.
The wits and wonder of Lex took him to the amazing firm that is MS Farrell, later his reputation and skill took him to giant Oppenheimer Financial. This ladies and gentleman is were the ooohhhs and ahhhhs should begin, because to earn a series 7 trading license is something very, very few can accomplish in this world. It takes a combination that few possess. The exam in itself is brutal and long and you must be sponsored by an SRO. With out being too technical, you have to be a fucking bad ass with corporate money internationally to even qualify to take this test. I’m picturing the moment Lex got into this business. I have heard from mutual freinds, that he was attending a massive sex party, yes, they do happen dear readers, just like in the Leonardo DiCaprio movie. I like to call it the hobby-istic side of the industry. I can see Lex perhaps celebrating a big deal or a large trade and attending one of these lavish parties to celebrate in style. It was here that he discovered the adult world and was told by a friend that he should indeed give it a go for reasons that everyone should already know, wink-wink.
Lex continued to keep porn on the horizon as he continued to make money on Wall Street. It was after he kept finally getting a push that he decided to dive in head first into the industry and move to Los Angeles. Something that many do but not many succeed at when it comes to the bright lights of Hollywood. Lex used his dedication to become one of the best actors of all times, yes, I said actors, because Lex can do any scene, he can work any set and he can destroy some of these so called “mainstream” actors in a second, just the way he did when he stole the show appearing on Showtimes amazing series Weeds. Lexington is the only three time winner of male performer of the year and let me tell you ladies and gentleman, it comes from more than just his manhood. Having appeared in over 1,000 adult films, Lexington sets the bar for all other male actors when it comes to excellence. He not only talks the talk, he walks the walks. His journeys and inquisitive mind have taken him behind the camera and that is were this pioneer truly made his mark in my book.
The eye of Lex Steele is something porn fans have seen but may not know. Lexington Steele brought in so much innovation with companies like Anabolic Studios and Rosebud Films. He would also showcase this gritty, sexy and illuminating perspective to all his films and the way sex is portrayed. To me, it was simply fate that landed him in the stable with the marvelous production company known as Evil Angel. I think they are the perfect fit for each other. Lex’s style, his grace and his hard work are something that I think can only be brought out with the best. Lex knows his target audience, he shoots for them and always supplies the demand for more. Aside from his own company, I think his best work is yet to come as a director. I think Lexington Steele will soon meet that starlet that features everything he has to offer in order to make the most amazing film possible. I think the near future will bring his award count to an even thirty or maybe more with Lex showing no signs of letting up. For all the performers in the business and those behind the scenes, we owe a debt to a man who did things his way. Who opened up doors for the amazing niches in film that exist today. That is what makes Lex Steele and innovator, that is what makes him a pioneer!
