Buzz Builds Over .XXX

Buzz Builds Over .XXX
The Commerce Department's June 30 announcement that the United States would retain, and perhaps expand, control over the Internet infrastructure is roiling other countries hoping to see an international body assume that role. But many industry insiders believe the move was a direct response to a ser... More »

Navigating the Minefield

Navigating the Minefield
2257 regulations, proposed sin taxes, age verification and possible DOJ inspections: What have I gotten myself into? If you are concerned about the mountain of new attacks on the industry, don't feel alone; there are many who are proceeding with uncertainty, unsure of the right direction, worrie... More »

Sticky Secrets of Retention

Sticky Secrets of Retention
Let's face it: Adult surfers are a fickle lot. Webmasters spend thousands of hours — and tens of thousands of dollars — to create and market sites they're confident will satisfy visitors in every way. Users sign up, and then 30 days later, they're gone. Most websites take their marketing doll... More »

Dance Circuit Stars: 1

Dance Circuit Stars: 1
At 9 o'clock on a recent Saturday night, Usher's "Yeah!" blasted over the sound system at the Spearmint Rhino strip club in Oxnard, Calif., and porn star Nikki Benz strutted onto the stage in a pink plaid schoolgirl outfit.

Adult Magazines Shift Pace

Adult Magazines Shift Pace
Trying to convince advertisers and readers that the medium isn't dying, Magazine Publishers of America recently unveiled a series of print ads depicting what magazines might look like in the future.

Game Porn: A New Hybrid

Game Porn: A New Hybrid
From the floor of the Los Angeles Convention Center, the 2005 E3 Videogame Expo feels very much like Internext. Both conventions feature pounding music, scantily clad booth girls and a throng of nerdy fans. But delve deeper and you'll notice an important difference. While the adult convention blata... More »

Surviving The Times

Surviving The Times

Specifically, webmasters must forge a plan to compete... More »

An HD Video Revolution

An HD Video Revolution
Staying one step ahead of the pornographic curve isn't for wimps. Just ask Justin Fawcett. A cameraman whose credits include "Introducing Gigi" for Cherry Boxxx Pictures and "Hot and Nasty New Cummers" for Baby Doll Pictures, Fawcett is a recent convert to high-definition video and says he loves...

Industry Pulse: .XXX

Industry Pulse: .XXX

Personally, I feel that any steps that the industry can voluntarily take that will help keep our wares out of the hands of children or of those legally prohibited from accessi... More »

Database Encryption

Database Encryption
The optimal way to store adult content is through the use of a relational database. A relational database provides more security than simply leaving content as OS files for a hacker to download. Yet in today’s hostile online environment, intruders have learned how to steal database files and extra... More »

LEGAL PERSPECTIVES

Data Privacy Is Tightening Up in the E.U.

Have you begun preparing for GDPR? If you are like most, you haven’t even heard of GDPR, but also if you are like most, it is going to affect your business, starting May 25, 2018. The GDPR, or General... More »

Preventing Legal Problems Before They Start

Dentists typically recommend that a person’s teeth be cleaned every six months and that oral X-rays be taken at least once every year. Internists recommend that a person receive a physical examination... More »
