Virgin Flirts With Porn

Virgin Flirts With Porn
"We don't carry porno like that," the clerk at the Orlando, Fla., Virgin Megastore huffed into the phone when asked if the retail outlet stocked DVD titles from Jenna Jameson or Peach.

Whenever I hear the words "erotica for women, by women" I imagine the output of various San Francisco and Austin outlets featuring buzzcut ladies named Mo with music by their friends' bands. The goings-on on their patchoulli-scented futons don't touch me in that special place, but I'm sure they cock... More »

Unsolicited Bulk Email

Unsolicited Bulk Email
What is spam? We all know what spam is when we are on the receiving end. Every day most of us delete endless meaningless emails from sources we don't know or care about.

"It's Our Business."

"It's Our Business."
I was hanging out in Hollywood with an eminent pornographer. He had some examples of his work in DVD and magazine form. He was handing them to me on the street, describing each one as he went.

Report: Bitches Evil
"At the end of the day, I want people to jack off," says Nectar/1st Strike director Damien Rossi (aka fetish photographer Ben Hoffman).

Paycom's offices occupy a building in Marina del Rey, Calif., but the company's roots are in Huntsville, Ala., where fate brought together two ambitious kids more than three decades ago. Founders Clay Andrews and Joel Hall had no way of knowing when they met through a mutual friend at age five th... More »

Girls to be Spanked

Girls to be Spanked
I can't really think of any other examples to back this up, but nowhere but the porn world is justice meted out so fairly and immediately. Take the case of Spank Me, I'm a Bad Girl, a spankfest on so many levels, starring Alektra Blue, Candi, Brooke, Avena Lee, and Alicia. "These women freely adm... More »

Bring Me a Cheeseburger
Ever since Patrick Stewart introduced Salt 'n' Pepa on Saturday Night Live (Charlie Rocket R.I.P.), I have harbored the desire to hear famous people saying characteristic or uncharacteristic things.
