A Decade of Development
Editor's note: A recent question submitted to Danni Ashe's "ask danni" column in XBiz World Magazine asked "Has the industry changed for the better or worse over the past 10 years, and why?"

Wet, Detailed, & Nailed

<i>Wet, Detailed, & Nailed</i>
Trina Michaels, whom I think is just super, stars in this car customization-oriented porn film from VCA. I have not seen it, but here is what I have gleaned from the cover: 1.

Steve and the inevitable altporn backlash

Steve and the inevitable altporn backlash
While I'm not sure who coined the term altporn, or alt-anything, the problem people seem to have with it stems not from the content itself but the fact that applying "alt" to any word makes it seem as if the amended word requires a stylistic retooling. If you make altporn, then people think porn ... More »

Mason's Sluts Redux

<i>Mason's Sluts</i> Redux
As a 32nd-degree mason, I know that sluts are as much a part of the benefits package as taking the Grail home on weekends.
