Gaped Crusaders

<i>Gaped Crusaders</i>
Early Movie Title of the Year honors go to Hustler, whose Gaped Crusaders pokes its head out of the post-Vegas/AVN eye sludge like a delightful prairie dog. Gaped Crusaders, starring the chameleon-like Holly Wellin as well as Jada Fire and Unsung Starlet Mika Tan, is an early contender for the 20... More »

One Last Look

One Last Look
Recently, XBIZ World magazine asked several industry players, "What was the biggest newsmaker in 2006?"

XBiz Forum And Awards: Us v. Them

XBiz Forum And Awards: Us v. Them
The XBiz Hollywood Forum was a success for the content it squeezed into two brief days of parties, seminars, and mingling.

But All About Anna will be screened by the Un... More »

Sophia Santi's golden arches

Sophia Santi's golden arches
I interviewed Sophia Santi at last year's AVN convention and yesterday and, to my horror, saw that her eyebrows had not changed.

I Love Adult, But...
"One day I'm gonna die, and I'm gonna be in this same fucking room, with these same fucking guys, talking about these same fucking scams that never amount to anything, and that's how I'll know I got sent to fucking hell." That's a line from mob boss Sonny in the film "Donnie Brasco." I reprint it... More »

Porned Alaska
Alaska, the graphic designer whose boxcover art is often the best part of many porn movies, has a new website featuring his porn work and mainstream art. Six Months of Light vaults the designer out of his .net ghetto into .com sunshine, with all the respect and validation that implies. How many t... More »
