Form vs. Function

Form vs. Function

Tapping Into a New Corner

Tapping Into a New Corner
Last year, several Virgin Megastore locations in the U.S. unveiled COLT Corners, branded kiosks featuring DVDs and other branded products from COLT Studio Group.

Secure Your Domain

Secure Your Domain
One of the most valuable assets that an adult webmaster has — even more valuable than their content — is their domain name. Your domain name is your brand, and like Wheaties cereal, it hopefully has a following. For instance, imagine suddenly owning the domain www.barelylegal.com or maybe www.cl... More »

Made in Maine

Made in Maine
Waterville, Maine, is the type of place that makes you think of a Norman Rockwell painting, even in 2006 — 13 square miles of sleepy college town on the Nennebec River, with red brick buildings lining a central thoroughfare that's actually called Main Street.

"Straight men want trannies," says Ale... More »

Money Management

Money Management
The story has been told many times before.

How did this happ... More »

Stories for Sale

Stories for Sale
According to the Encyclopedia of Literature (Merriam Webster), written pornography has been largely superseded by explicit visual representations of erotic behavior since World War II.
