How to Be a Gay Porn Star

How to Be a Gay Porn Star
In August 1995 I was in a meeting in the main offices of HHO Construction Inc., the operating company for three gay bars in Dallas. At the time, I was the general manager of all three nightclubs and the agenda of our meeting — which included myself, the club owner, club managers, assistant manager... More »

Satisfying Gay VOD Consumers

Satisfying Gay VOD Consumers
In the beginning of porn, there was film. And it was good. Then, as Ronald Reagan took control of the country and the AIDS epidemic surged, "We Are the World" became the anthem of the 1980s. Then a small invention called the videocassette was created — and it was really good. Flash-forward 25 y... More »

Follow-up: The DAVID Awards Controversy

Titan Media founder Bruce Cam stirred a hornet's nest when he refused Lifetime Achievement honors from the 2nd annual DAVID Awards, held on Oct. 19 in Berlin, to coincide with the Venus Berlin adult industry trade show and gay-fetish event Hustlaball Berlin.

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 »

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 »

Marketing Tranny Material

Marketing Tranny Material
The box-covers fall onto two types: In one the model is coyly posed to draw attention away from a suspicious bulge in the bikini bottom. In the other, the model is nude, or in an open negligee or undone bikini, revealing breasts and, as the eye wanders down the torso, a penis. Transsexual videos,... More »

Branching Out

Branching Out
In early 2007, Packaged Facts, a division of MarketResearch.com, and the Washington-based marketing / public relations firm Witeck-Combs Communications announced the results of a joint report on the buying power of what Witeck-Combs CEO Bob Witeck broadly defined as "America's diverse gay, lesbian, ...

Gay Niches

Gay Niches
Thanks to the Internet sexually explicit gay material has never been more plentiful or more diverse than it is today — and one of the things that is making the gay adult Internet so diverse and eclectic is the popularity of niche marketing. Madame Watson, co-owner of the gay-friendly adult comp... More »
