Quick turnaround in the gape department

Quick turnaround in the gape department
The following entry will hold no interest for members of the adult industry, but for the 96 percent of the readership that doesn't work in porn, I think it will be fascinating. In the middle of June I attended the filming of Lethal Hardcore's Cum in My Gaping Butthole 2, and now the five scene go... More »

Safeguarding Personal Info

Safeguarding Personal Info
I recently received a letter from Uncle Sam concerning a serious issue that's been in the news lately, and it really has me thinking about just how vulnerable we are in this digital age to threats far beyond our control — as well as to threats under our control. You may have already heard about... More »

The Real Bottom Line

The Real Bottom Line
For many in this business, the bottom line is all about making money. That’s sad, because it overlooks the real bottom line: living long and healthy enough to enjoy the money you make.

A Higher Score

A Higher Score
I was amused to see a story on CNN this morning discussing the controversy over recent donations to a local school by one of Score’s gentleman’s clubs. Apparently the popular strip club held a special fund-raising event where dancers dressed as schoolgirls, teachers, librarians and the like, wit... More »

Vacation escort

Vacation escort
As I and Team Ponante were planning our excursion to Points East this month, a box arrived full of the most challenging gadgets and geegaws, including this Kochi anime blowup doll with "usable pussy ass and mouth". I always tell my women, "Women," I say, "you'd better make sure your mouths, asses... More »

The Summer Slowdown

The Summer Slowdown
Toward the end of every year, I start to see board postings and hear grumblings from webmasters about the infamous "summer slowdown," complete with that sense of impending doom that sales are going to dry up and we'll have to ration food for three months until we can get back to the regular flow o...
