Decompression Time

Decompression Time
I've just returned from a much-needed and long-overdue vacation — my first "real" break in more than four years — and I have a few things that are still fresh in my mind that I'd like to share with you about my trip: things that might provide some food for thought over any current or future proj...

Strategic Alliances

Strategic Alliances
The government recently unveiled its proposed amendments to Chapter 75 of the Code of Federal Regulations dealing with record maintenance and labeling requirements for depictions of sexually explicit materials. While a full discussion of the proposed changes to the Code is beyond the purview of this... More »

It's Been a Busy Year

It's Been a Busy Year
When I first learned from XBIZ Publisher Tom Hymes that he planned to focus the feature articles of the October 2007 issue of our beloved publication on "the business of law," I must admit that I wondered whether all the frontline legal battlefield reporting this year by my old friend had caused him...

Crossing the Great Gay Divide

Crossing the Great Gay Divide
I recently participated in a gay roundtable panel discussion at Internext. During the course of the 90-minute session, the panel discussed the topic of the division of not only content and audiences in the gay and straight markets, but of the webmasters as well. The gap, it seems, that was once so w... More »

A Pirate's Tale

A Pirate's Tale
At the outset of this little journey I want to lay a disclaimer on you: I in no way, shape or form advocate or encourage copyright violation, illegal file-trading or the use of media in any way not authorized by the terms your license to use it allows — so don't be naughty and try any of this at h...

Can Firefox Gain Market Share?

Can Firefox Gain Market Share?
In its ongoing attempt to garner a greater share of the web browser market, the Mozilla Foundation is starting to sound a little like an adult paysite owner fretting over his membership numbers: according to a recent article posted on the Mozilla website, the primary problem the company has faced in...

Extreme in the U.K.

Extreme in the U.K.
England's House of Commons was recently scheduled to discuss a proposed law that could have a major impact on consumers of kinky erotica in the United Kingdom: the so-called "extreme porn" law, which would criminalize the possession of what U.K. politicians have been loosely describing as "extreme p...

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

Straights Targeting Gays
"Going gay" — it's an increasingly common choice today for many adult webmasters; and one more often born of economic necessity rather than sexual preference. It's a matter of economic necessity as it is a lucrative yet under-served market segment — a rarity given the pervasive over-saturation s... More »

Search Oftentimes Is Left to Chance

Adult content is frowned upon in search, whether in paid, organic or social. With the big algo updates from the past few years, Google has cleaned up search, trying to get rid of spammy and low-quality... More »
