A Business Slowdown?

A Business Slowdown?
Recently, XBIZ World magazine asked several industry players, "Is the industry experiencing a downturn or is it mostly perception?" Here's what they had to say: Provided there isn't a huge economic downturn that I'm unaware of, I'd venture to say that it is mostly a perception that industry-wi... More »

"Corking" and other porn terms tastefully explained

"Corking" and other porn terms tastefully explained
Director Jim Powers is hell-bent on stripping away the glamour and romance of the porn industry, the shining jewel in the San Fernando Valley's crown (next to aviation and West Nile Virus). His second installment of bloopers from his years at JM Productions includes on-set fights, breakdowns, and... More »

Content Musings
Today while doing my usual checks of adult industry news, I came across a fascinating article about John Stagliano by John Stewart about the entire Gonzo topic. I've been producing content for our websites and DVD releases for about 12 years now and this really is a hot topic from a producer's p... More »

Gia Paloma's fan letter

Gia Paloma's fan letter
I went to the launch party for Julie Simone's Hollywood-gone-right casting couch movie Audition. The event was at Bar 107 downtown, and in attendance were the director and her star, Gia Paloma. Just a day before Van Damage had told me that Paloma, not of her own accord, had almost bit his dick of... More »

Caverject makes women grow

Caverject makes women grow
I was looking at the Caverject website because I wondered if people were still using this injection-based erection-getter. Before Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra, which are as responsible as mini-DV cameras and hot girlfriends for getting more guys into the adult business, many porn dudes would injec... More »
