The wages of Sacred Sin is death

The wages of <i>Sacred Sin</i> is death
As you know, I save my Instant Messenger conversations. I was chatting with a female friend who works in adult marketing and asked her if a porn movie that has as one of its plot points the death of a child would need to work extra hard to turn her on.

Adult's Numbers: 1

Adult's Numbers: 1
We have all read the reports that claim to pinpoint exactly how large the industry is in terms of revenue, sometimes claiming that adult entertainment in the U.S. brings in more money than the three major professional sports combined. But there never seem to be any sources to back up the numbers,... More »

Drawing a line between the living and the dead - a sexy line

Drawing a line between the living and the dead - a <i>sexy</i> line
Wisconsin's James Hathaway, 20, met a dead deer by the side of the road and, without too much cajoling, had sex with it.

Who Pays for Escorts?

Who Pays for Escorts?

Again with the Titties

Again with the Titties
From my dim past (not to say the present isn't similar) I can remember centerfold women who looked like Carmen Kinsley on the cover of 100% Natural Wonders 5. It seems, though, that the world has moved on to slighter, more compact and engineered models. That is why Kinsley is wearing a schoolgirl... More »
