Porn star, Stormy Daniels, who has been having a running battle with the United States President Donald Trump, has said that the president is not much of a good lover and that he lasted only two minutes in bed.
The controversial sex worker also claims that President Trump is a “good conversationalist,” and that in the course of their sexual trysts, he asked “good questions about the porn industry,” including if adult film stars get royalties and residuals or had a union.
In an interview with the Vogue magazine published on Tuesday, she explained part of the extra-marital encounter she had with Trump to New York Timesreporter, Amy Chozick.
When asked, “How many details can you really give about two minutes?” Daniels said, “Maybe. I’m being generous.”
She, however, remained consistent with her past claims that the sex was consensual and that she never felt forced into it.
She also said that Trump wasn’t a bad conversationalist and that he asked good questions about the porn industry, including if adult film stars get royalties and residuals or had a union.
Aformer porn star was paid $130,000 by President Trump’s personal lawyer a month before the 2016 election — part of an agreement to keep her quiet about an extramarital affair she had with the President, according to a report Friday.
Attorney Michael Cohen arranged the payment to X-rated actress Stephanie Clifford after her lawyer negotiated a nondisclosure agreement, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Clifford, who made dozens of dirty movies under the name Stormy Daniels, told friends the encounter with Trump took place after they met at a July 2006 celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, people familiar with the matter told the newspaper.
Another porn star, Alana Evans, told the Daily Beast that Daniels had told her “I ended up with Donald in his hotel room. Picture him chasing me around his hotel room in his tighty-whities.’”
“I was like, ‘Oh I really didn’t need to hear that!’” Evans told the website.
Trump has denied several allegations of sexual misconduct in the past and spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in 2016 that it was “absolutely, unequivocally” untrue that Clifford had a relationship with Trump.
Clifford, 27 at the time of the alleged consensual encounter, has appeared in films including “On Golden Blonde,” “Breast Side Story” and “Good Will Humping.”
“These are old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election,” a White House official told the Journal on Friday.
Neither Clifford nor her lawyer returned requests for comment from the Daily News.
Cohen, a longtime Trump Organization lawyer, denied anything took place between the President and Clifford and sent a two-paragraph statement by email addressed “TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN” and signed by “Stormy Daniels” denying that she had a “sexual and/or romantic affair” with Trump.
“Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false,” the statement said.
The report said Clifford, now 38, had complained after signing the agreement that the payment wasn’t coming quickly enough and threatened to can the deal and break her silence.
In 2016, the Journal reported that Clifford was set to appear on ABC’s “Good Morning America” to discuss her relationship with Trump in the wake of the paper’s story alleging the National Enquirer had paid a former Playboy centerfold $150,000 to keep quiet about her affair with Trump.
Trump is longtime friends with David Pecker, the chairman of American Media which owns the National Enquirer.
The Daily Beast reported it had been in talks with Daniels to tell her story, but she abruptly backed out just five days before the election. The site said it had three sources, including Evans, who told them Trump and Daniels had been involved.
The President has denied cheating on his third wife, First Lady Melania Trump, whom he married in 2005. She gave birth to their son Barron just months before the alleged tryst.
The alleged agreement with Clifford came around the same time that a recording of Trump bragging about grabbing women by their genitals was leaked.
Another adult film star, Jessica Drake, alleged that same month that Trump kissed her and two other women without permission in a hotel suite after the same 2006 golf event.
“I did not sign (a nondisclosure agreement), nor have I received any money for coming forward,” Drake told the Journal. “I spoke out because it was the right thing to do.”
Nearly two dozen women have come forward with accusations of sexual assault against Trump.
The women include former adult film stars, a contestant on “The Apprentice,” and several journalists.
The White House has maintained that the allegations are all false.

ROME (RNS) — Lurid accusations of priests involved in sex orgies, porn videos and prostitution have emerged from several parishes in Italy recently, sending shock waves all the way to the Vatican and challenging the high standards Pope Francis demands of clergy.In the southern city of Naples, for example, a priest was recently suspended from the parish of Santa Maria degli Angeli over claims he held gay orgies and used Internet sites to recruit potential partners whom he paid for sex.The allegations concerning the Rev. Mario D’Orlando were brought to the attention of the diocese when an anonymous letter was sent to a Naples bishop. D’Orlando denied the charges when he was summoned by the city’s archbishop, Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe, but is now facing a formal inquiry conducted by local church officials.
In the northern city of Padua, a 48-year-old priest, the Rev. Andrea Contin, is facing defrocking as well as judicial proceedings amid accusations he had up to 30 lovers, some of whom he took to a swingers’ resort in France.
Contin was removed from his parish of San Lazzaro after three women came forward with complaints against him in December. Bishop Claudio Cipolla of Padua cut short a visit to Latin America to deal with the scandal.
“I am incredulous and pained by the accusations,” Cipolla said at a news conference last month. “This is unacceptable behavior for a priest, a Christian and even for a man.”
One woman, who claims to have been Contin’s lover for more than three years, claimed the priest carried sex toys and bondage equipment, prostituted his lovers on wife-swapping websites and also invited other priests from the area to sex parties.
“Even if, at the end of this affair, there are no legal consequences, we have a duty by canon law to take disciplinary action,” said Cipolla.
He also revealed Pope Francis telephoned him personally at the end of January to offer his support and urge him to stay “strong.”
Since his election the pope has taken a tough line on ethical behavior in the church, though he has also recognized the reality of human imperfection and personal flaws.
In recent weeks the pontiff has spoken out many times against “temptation,” and last week he told a gathering of clergy at the Basilica of St. John Lateran in Rome that faith could not progress without the challenge of temptation.
“Temptation is always present in our lives. Moreover, without temptation you cannot progress in faith,” he said.
Alberto Melloni, professor of church history at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, said there is nothing unusual about scandals in the priesthood.
“There is no sin that a cleric doesn’t commit. Scandals to me seem quite normal,” he said.
“And I think the illusion of stopping scandals through better selection of personnel is not very promising and has not yielded great results. ”
Francis has frequently called for a more rigorous screening process for seminarians, and he has taken direct action when scandals erupt in Italy.
A case in point: When reports of “playboy priests” surfaced in the Italian diocese of Albenga-Imperia in the northern region of Liguria in late 2014, the pope sent a special envoy to investigate claims that clerics had posted nude photos of themselves on gay websites, sexually harassed the faithful and stole church funds.
Two years later the pope replaced the leader of the diocese, Bishop Mario Oliveri.
Austen Ivereigh, commentator and author of The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope, said the pope distinguished between sinfulness and corruption and was intent on “rooting out” corruption inside the church.
“The remedy for those who succumb to temptation is forgiveness and a fresh start,” Ivereigh said. “The problem is when priests turn their backs on the people, lead hidden lives and end up justifying their conduct. That’s corruption.
“And it’s only possible in the priesthood because of clericalism. That’s why the pope is so intent on rooting it out.” (USA Today)
In the heat of the presidential campaigns, then Republican candidate Donald Trump had promised to clamp down on pornography if elected.
Reports had it that last July 16, Trump had signed a pledge from anti-pornography group, Enough is Enough, promising to enforce laws against pornography if he won the election.
While concerned Americans await their new president to make good his promise, it turned out that President Trump had also appeared in a soft porn video which, according to BuzzFeed News, was shot to welcome the millennium models of the Playboy magazine, twin sisters Bernaola.
As reported by BuzzFeed News, Trump broke a bottle of champagne on a Playboy-branded limousine while several of the Playmates were visiting New York City.
A Playmate is a female model featured in the centrefold/gatefold of Playboy magazine as Playmate of the Month.
BuzzFeed News reports: “Other scenes from the film feature fully nude women posing in sexual positions, dancing naked, touching themselves while naked, touching each other sensually, rubbing honey on themselves, taking a bath, and dressing in costumes.
“On a bus tour hunt for the 2000 Playmate of the Year around the country, the Playmates travel to different cities including New York, Las Vegas, Chicago, Nashville, and San Diego.
“Trump welcomes the Playmates in New York and pops a bottle of champagne to kick off the New York stop. Trump then pours it over the Playboy bunny logo.” (BuzzFeed News)
