The Bareback Controversy

The Bareback Controversy
A fantasy is the one place where you shouldn't have to play by the rules. This premise is the cornerstone of the entire adult industry because it's a business of providing consumers with the stuff that fantasies are made of, enabling them to visualize experiences they could probably never access ...

Gay Can Be Tapped Further

Gay Can Be Tapped Further
Getting your website in front of a first-time gay customer may not be as easy as it was, say, 10 years ago, but there's still a good portion of the market that has yet to be reached.

Here's a closer look: GOMA Systems Corporation has followed the re... More »

The Gay Video Market

Like other adult actors, he enjoys being looked at, watched and even admired. But, unlike other straight male talent, he loves his gay male fa... More »

Real Lesbian Porn?

Real Lesbian Porn?
It seems that one of the hardest things for adult website operators to do is persuade women to purchase porn. While some of this is due to the fact that women simply aren't conditioned to have to pay for sex, much of it has to do with what is being offered and the differences in taste between men an...
