Riley Shy deserves medal, towel

Riley Shy deserves medal, towel
Todd Todd is a photographer who pretty much knows everybody in the adult business. When I was new to AVN in 2003, he took me around the convention floor and introduced me to every performer in the building, including these ladies. Photographers need to keep the action moving so their subjects do... More »

Website Billing. Global Charge. iBill. GloBill. My Virtual Card/Pay Monde.

Male performers protest L.A. Direct Models' discrimination
Talent agency L.A. Direct Models, which recently instituted a "Girl of the Month" award, is under attack by some members of its male talent roster for "creating an environment in which women are alone singled out for praise."

Memoirs of a <strike>Modern-Day</strike> <strike>Mika Tan</strike> <strike>Geisha</strike> Madame
While Shy Love does not set pen to paper or address the camera in Sinsation's Memoirs of a Madame, thus making the title misleading, the movie does reveal little-known truths about upscale escort services previously possessed only by viewers of late-night Skinemax: 1.

Audrey Bitoni: Comin' At Ya!

Audrey Bitoni: Comin' At Ya!
The moments I like best in porn movies are usually the transitions. A lot of directors will endeavor to edit them out but when, every now and then, the viewer is treated to the quick hop-off and hop-on between positions, it's a treat. Why?

Closing the Door, Revisited

Closing the Door, Revisited

So Goes My Toes
I love photographing women: Their curves, their grace and their inherent sexuality make them wonderful artistic subjects. And perhaps deep down, they represent an illustration of what I always wished I looked like — long-limbed, fluid, confident and desired. So when Playgirl approached me about... More »

Design In-Depth

Design In-Depth
It only takes a few seconds for a web surfer to decide whether or not a site is worth clicking through; adult websites need to look as hot and fresh as the adult stars they highlight.

The sacred semiotics of the stigmafoot
The SiFeet Pussy Foot, a replica of a size-6 female right (or left) foot, is marketed with the attached image, depicting a pair of bound feet, one with a vagina in it.
