AFF For A Bil?

AFF For A Bil?
TechCrunch reports that Adult Friend Finder may have been bought for one billion dollars. A billion seems low for a company with reported annual revenue of $300 million. Or does it? I can't tell anymore, and I don't trust any of the numbers thrown around. But let's assume they are accurate a... More »

2257 or Piracy?

2257 or Piracy?
Recently, XBIZ World magazine asked several industry players, "If you had the power to eliminate one of the following from existence, would you do away with 2257 record-keeping regulations, or content piracy?" Here's what they had to say: This is a tough one! But I would have to say piracy. W... More »

Why Three-Way Links?

Why Three-Way Links?
Back links are very important with the search engines and reciprocal link exchanges are an easy way to get them. But there’s some reason to believe that the bots know very well what’s going on, so their value is somewhat attenuated. What the bots do like to see is an inbound link from a ... 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...

Will 2257 Inspections Continue?
A still running XBIZ poll asking people if they think 2257 inspections will continue, even though the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals has struck down the record keeping regulations as facially unconstitutional, shows that thus far about 75% of the responders believe the FBI will continue to inspect. ...

This occurs without the expense that can be associated with methods such as advertising, and the problems associated with others like email. It also makes for happier subscribe... More »

Chi Chi LaRue

Chi Chi LaRue
With director credits galloping toward 250 according to the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) website, and well over 17,000 MySpace friends at last count, Chi Chi LaRue doesn’t need much of an introduction. If you want a history lesson about LaRue leaving Minnesota for L.A. in the 1980s, a ... More »

Back in the Day with Vintage/Retro

Back in the Day with Vintage/Retro
Combing through the archives for some vintage articles on the retro niche, which I believe we'll see sparking more interest in the near future... ;-) “Vintage” porn starts about the time of photography, when that was invented in the 1880s, and becomes “retro” towards the end... More »

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.
