A Reason For Being

A Reason For Being
I’m excited about starting up here because I will be XBIZ’s first GLBT Editor, a position the company really needed.

Hi Everybody

Hi Everybody
As Dr. Nick on “The Simpsons” likes to say: “Hi, everybahdy!” Let me briefly explain just who the hell I am — my name is Jeremy Spencer and I am the new GLBT Editor for XBIZ magazine. I have been in the gay adult industry for almost 10 years — I started in 1998 as a freelance review... More »

Chi Chi LaRue

Chi Chi LaRue
With director credits galloping toward 250 according to the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) website, and well over 17,000 MySpace friends at last count, Chi Chi LaRue doesn’t need much of an introduction. If you want a history lesson about LaRue leaving Minnesota for L.A. in the 1980s, a ... More »

Where are the Real Lesbians?

Where are the Real Lesbians?
Hot girl-on-girl action is all over the Internet. It seems there are countless numbers of lip-glossed lesbians tickling each other with manicured nails and pretty pink dildos every day, and lucky for us there's always a camera nearby. The problem is, it's just not real. The pretty girls performin... More »

Straights Targeting Gays
