Customer value and your pain threshold

Customer value and your pain threshold
On a constant basis, I talk to industry peers about the effectiveness of their ad campaigns, focusing on financial return on investment. For pay site owners, the issue of customer value seems to be straightforward – what is the average value in dollars for each subscriber or simply – what is a c... More »

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".

Everything old is new again

Everything old is new again
The Cream Pie. Aside from its goblet-drinking, mirror-slurping variations, there is nothing new about this wholesome, church-blesssed act between two people who love each other very much.

Staying Up-to-Date

Staying Up-to-Date
Like many adult webmasters, I’m a big fan of leveraging my time through automation; relying on script-based solutions to handle things like TGP and content management, link maintenance, gallery submissions, stats analysis and more.
