Learning to Love: Riding the Curves #3

Learning to Love: <i>Riding the Curves #3</i>
Just so you know, porn stars don't spend months preparing for a film and then go on a vacation once they've shot it.

How Fake Sex Became Real

How Fake Sex Became Real
Across Europe and Asia, the humble mobile has in recent years evolved into an all-around information and entertainment center and now rates as a "must have" item when out and about – along with the wallet, purse or keys.

A Verification Alternative

A Verification Alternative
On July 3, 1995, a Time magazine cover featured a green-faced boy, eyes agog, staring at a computer screen with a huge caption that blared, "On a Screen Near You: Cyberporn."

When in Portland: Masturbate
Portland (Oregon - stuff like this never happens in Maine) treasure Darklady is holding her fourth annual Masturbate-a-thon.

Notes from A Greyhound Station
Hollywood's White Lotus club, which used to be a great dance bar called Crush, which prior to that was a Greyhound station (the new one is next door), was host to a mainstream entertainment staple that is becoming more and more common in the adult industry: a co-production. About 17 comp... More »
