As at liquidation, Carr has advised the liquidators that Payroll Solution Services “held no realisable assets” It “provided services exclusively to companies related to the director” and “ceased to trade in April 2011”).
Ray Smith was Production Manager for the hardcore porn film directed by Steve Crow entitled “RIPE” – featuring 22-year old “Nikki” (not her real name), a three-and-a-half pregnant “wannabe porn star”. The making of this video was dealt with in graphic detail on the 43 minute TV documentary “Naked Ambition” (recorded on 30 January 2003 and screened on TVNZ Channel One in May 2003); produced by Creme Media (now owned by Greenstone Pictures, Auckland).
It featured Steve Crow – referred to as “Porn King” and owner at that time of Vixen Direct – a hardcore porn distribution company. It included several scenes with Raymond Simpson together with Steve Crow involved in the filming of the pregnant “Nikki” having sex with two men – co-stars “William a “stripper” aged 24 years and “Andy” a self-declared “exhibitionist” and printer by occupation aged 39 years. Both men were recruited by Crow to take part in his film project. The programme noted that both co-stars were filmed having sex a number of times with “Nikki” over several days, commencing 10 minutes after meeting her “co-stars”.
There was considerable controversy in 2002 when Crow’s plan to use public hospital facilities to film “Nikki” giving birth – in order to include the footage in his porn film, became public knowledge via the media. Critics were incensed by the intended exploitation of the soon-to-be-born child who they claimed would forever be dubbed “the porn baby”. Crow argued that “Nikki” had a right to have the birth filmed and have it included in the film featuring her. It was all about “freedom of expression” he argued.
As soon as the Society for Promotion of Community Standards Inc. learnt of Crow’s plans, its secretary wrote on behalf of the executive to the Chairperson of the Waikato Hospital Board, expressing concern over the moral and spiritual welfare oNikki’s child. The chairperson, soon afterwards, wrote to “Nikki” banning the filming of her labour and birth in its delivery suite for “unlawful purposes”. Crow was cery angry over the Board’s banning order.
Then the Society wrote to the Minister of Heath. Hon. Annette King, expressing concern over the moral and spiritual welfare of Nikki’s baby and pointing out that the exploitation of the baby’s birth to make porn, was being done for pecuniary gain by “Porn King” Steve Crow.
Crow stated on the Naked Ambition documentary that there is an “insatiable demand” for hardcore porn and that in Europe porn featuring pregnant women having sex was “popular” – referred to in media as “pregnancy fetish porn flicks”).
About an hour after receiving the Society’s letter, the Minister made a decision and issued a Ministerial Order blocking Steve Crow (nd his production manager Ray Smith) from using any public hospital facility in New Zealand to film “Nikki” giving birth to her child – for use in a porn film.
Child, Youth and Family Services made application to the the High Court for an order banning Crow from filming the birth of Nikki’s baby for the purposes of using this footage in a porn film.
In October 2002 a High Court Judge – Justice Paul Heath- issued an order banning Vixen Direct owner Steve Crow from using footage of Nikki’s baby in his porn film
In his 45-page ruling Justice Heath wrote:
“I find myself in total agreement with the chief social worker’s conclusion that Nikki’s desire to be a ‘star’ has, in fact, over-ridden her judgment about what is in the best interests of the unborn child.”
He allowed the recording of the birth, but only if an assurance was given the footage would not be used in the film. He adjourned the case until 18 December 2002 to “ascertain what steps have been taken since the making of these orders.”
He said if undertakings were filed and deliberately breached he would consider it “a very serious breach of court for which likely punishment would be imprisonment.”
