The Danger Zone

The Danger Zone
Recently, XBIZ World asked the industry's top attorneys, "What is the one thing adult webmasters aren't doing to protect themselves?" Here's what they had to say: "The one major thing — among many others — that adult webmasters are not doing to protect themselves is to treat their busines... More »

Spain: 2

Spain: 2
In part one, we began our look at this European hotbed of adult entertainment. In this conclusion, we'll continue our look at the Spanish market, gonzo productions and beyond. One area in which Spain's adult film industry is deficient, according to El Glorioso, is gonzo porn. Gonzo has become a m... More »

Spain: 1

Spain: 1
From 1939-75, Spain was ruled by the oppressive dictatorship of Francisco Franco, aka El Generalísimo. Franco, an unapologetic fascist, ruled Spain with an iron fist and was rigid and Draconian in his social conservatism. But much has changed in España since Franco's death in 1975; a country that ...

High-Tech Toys

High-Tech Toys

Safeguarding Personal Info

Safeguarding Personal Info

You may have already heard about... More »

Health Care in Adult

Health Care in Adult
Health care for the adult industry is an issue that is almost always viewed through HIV-tinted glasses. And most would say rightfully so, in a business whose lock, stock and trade requires performers to engage in mostly unprotected sexual intercourse for the entertainment of a paying audience. Bu...

The Summer Slowdown

The Summer Slowdown
Toward the end of every year, I start to see board postings and hear grumblings from webmasters about the infamous "summer slowdown," complete with that sense of impending doom that sales are going to dry up and we'll have to ration food for three months until we can get back to the regular flow o...
