After the Sale

After the Sale
From the affiliate point of view, webmasters are led to believe that what matters most is reaching the point of sale as often as possible and as quickly as possible. While it's true that without a sale no company can earn revenue, for many adult affiliate programs the actual sale is only the startin... More »

No on 8 and Yes on McCain? (UPDATED)

No on 8 and Yes on McCain? (UPDATED)
I wonder if many Californians will vote no on 8 but yes for McCain. I'd like to see those numbers afterward. Seems like it would be an odd thing to do, but I have a funny feeling more than a few people will do it and some of them will come from our industry. I suspect that those who do "split" th... More »

Defining the Body Politic

Defining the Body Politic
The call is out to rouse the adult entertainment industry from its presumed slumber in an effort to encourage (and influence) active participation in the upcoming election. In many ways, and on many industry forums, the rather irritating presumption has been that we as industry individuals see t... More »

The Election, the Supreme Court and Adult

The Election, the Supreme Court and Adult
Whether the next American president will be Republican John McCain or Democrat Barack Obama, there is a very strong possibility that he will be nominating at least one — if not two — justices for the U.S. Supreme Court. And for people in the adult entertainment industry, the question is: what ty... More »

Heavy Bloggers = Heavy Content Consumers

Heavy Bloggers = Heavy Content Consumers
As comScore data shows, heavy users of U.S. blog sites are significantly more likely than the average Internet user to consume online news and entertainment content. “As blogs continue to grow in both quality and audience size, both traditional and non-traditional advertisers are increasingly...

An Elephant or a Jackass?

An Elephant or a Jackass?
Politics and porn — the two go hand-in-hand despite the seemingly contradictory nature of these two endeavors — after all, both are meant to make their consumers "feel good." In his 1843 "Critique of Hegel's Philosophy of Right," German economist and Communist philosopher Karl Marx wrote, "Re... More »

2000 Charge Offers International Solutions

2000 Charge Offers International Solutions
Back in 1999, Wolf Kring was working as a payment processing business consultant in Germany. He'd had his own hosting company in 1995, so he knew firsthand about one of the chief problems that European customers faced. "I saw how hard it was for international people to pay online," Kring said. "U... More »

Broad Mainstream Coverage of Gerard Damiano's Passing

Broad Mainstream Coverage of Gerard Damiano's Passing
Famed director Gerard Damiano died Saturday after having suffered a stroke last month, and the mainstream press is covering his passing in a big way. As the director of the 1972 cultural phenomenon "Deep Throat," Damiano deserves the attention. Shot for 25 grand over 6 days, the success of the s... More »

America at a Crossroads

America at a Crossroads
Our country is now just days away from what is likely to be one of the most important presidential elections in our nation's history. For adult entertainment businesses, I believe, the stakes could not be greater. This month's article is admittedly going to be a bit more political than usual. Eve... More »

Focus on the Hate

Focus on the Hate
Vote NO on 8 and NO to the theocratic totalitarian base of the McCain/Palin ticket! The grotesquely misnamed Focus on the Family is at it again. They have been circulating a letter from the future that describes the results of four years of an Obama presidency, and the picture isn't a pretty one.... More »
