Five Processing Concerns

Five Processing Concerns
Online merchants in the adult industry have many more processing options than they had just a few years ago. In the beginning — throughout the middle and late 1990s — there were few choices. Alternate billing options were difficult to find, and those that did exist came with enormous integration... More »

Pegging the man-flower

<i>Pegging</i> the man-flower
"Are you into this?" asked a decidedly-androgynous photographer as I walked onto the set of Black Widow's Guys Getting Fucked by Women Wearing-Strap-ons opus Pegging 101. I hadn't heard of the term "pegging" before, but it was originally coined to mean anyone being penetrated by a strap-on. Now i... More »

The Da Vinci Load

<i>The Da Vinci Load</i>
The Da Vinci Load is a very funny movie. How those lines got coaxed out of some of those people is a staggering achievement. Here are Jasmine Tame and Charlotte Stokely as ice cream ladies.
