My Vivid visit

My Vivid visit
I stopped by Vivid Entertainment yesterday, which is right across the street from an In & Out Burger I have been known to frequent. It is also near a Nissan dealership. These are two indicators, along with the lack of pawn shops and train tracks nearby, that Vivid is an upscale establishment. ... More »

Carmen Luvana to host FAME Awards

Carmen Luvana to host FAME Awards
"I am in Florida, naked and thinking about you," Carmen Luvana said to me during a conference call announcing the hosts of June's FAME (Fans of Adult Media and Entertainment) Awards. Tommy Gunn will be the co-host. He's nice and everything, but I don't care what he's wearing. Questions of the ... More »

Adult Processing Perils

Adult Processing Perils
Processing adult products, services and memberships, according to Visa and MasterCard, is a high-risk business.

"Hello Angels: Bring me a goddamn solid gold cheeseburger."

"Hello Angels: Bring me a goddamn solid gold cheeseburger."
Larry's Angels, starring former Hustler contract girl Joey Hart (she's from Boston) and current contractor Memphis Monroe (she's from a filthy dream I had), will arrive on store shelves this week. This dirty movie also stars Paris Dahl and Holly Wellin. Word on the street (that's where I'm from, ... More »

Naked Savage

Naked Savage
Now and then I meet people who are nicer in person than they appear in their photos. Angie Savage, for example, looks like a blonde femme fatale in this picture but in actuality she is a very mild-mannered former office manager who baked cookies for the crew and then sent us video iPods in cases ...

Tired of Harassment?

Tired of Harassment?

Should the government really be spending this much time and effort trying to lock down a legitimate industry? Especially wh... More »

A Look at Cybersocket

A Look at Cybersocket
More than nine years ago, Morgan Sommer sat on the floor of his partner's house, organizing 2,200 pieces of paper containing bits of information that would some day become the first Cybersocket Directory for the GLBT Internet. It was all part of a plan that he and his partner, co-founder and art dir... More »

The upside of Homeland Security

The upside of Homeland Security
Hustler's Federal Breast Inspectors takes us back to a time when, not knowing any different, we glamorized the life of the Playboy photographer or the guys we would see handing out tickets to strip clubs. "Don't look at those people," my father would say, driving the station wagon through the bad... More »
