Paris Hilton: Porn's Martyr

Paris Hilton: Porn's Martyr
The porn industry should be rallying to the defense of Paris Hilton. At the very least, it should be marshalling its PR resources to send a loud message directly into the heart of the mainstream media and the judicial system that screams: leave the fucking girl alone! Mess with her and you are messi... More »

Adware, Spyware, Affiliates

Adware, Spyware, Affiliates
Every web-based means of delivering advertising to consumers presents the opportunity, for those inclined to take it, to abuse the power of the technology at hand. Accordingly, every innovation in the brief history of online advertising has been employed with both benevolent and malicious intent.... More »

The Black Toilet of Lust

The Black Toilet of Lust
When I write my book implicating you all, this is what I'll call it. I was at the property of performer/entrepreneur Lori Lust the other day, the house having been rented for a shoot. It was an elegant but not ostentatious house in Northridge, near the faultline of the 1994 earthquake and across ... More »

The Death of the Webmaster?

The Death of the Webmaster?
I’ve just returned from the XBIZ Summer Forum where I had a number of really interesting discussions; one of which I’d like to share some thoughts about with you. Having witnessed the birth and evolution of online adult entertainment first-hand, and considering myself a “Webmaster” in the... More »

Whither Texas Presley?

Whither Texas Presley?
As summer peaks, many porn companies are releasing reissues or compilations. That's how Texas Presley showed up in my mailbox. She was great. In just a few scenes shot from 2005 through (I think) 2006, she established herself as a cross between a steveporn girl, a fetish model, a brassy, busty vixen... More »

Brand Elevation

Brand Elevation
The strongest brands in the adult business have not attained the financial or market strength of peers in mainstream businesses. What has resulted is a gap between brand strength and the revenue that it generates: Appearance and reality fail to converge in porn. But few realize that the industry's f... More »

Gram's NicheAlertTM: TeenMILFs

Gram's NicheAlert<sup>TM</sup>: TeenMILFs
When we were younger, any nudity was exciting. National Geographic topless pygmies, Museum of Science childbirth exhibits, and homeless people rutting in the alley behind Pizza Hut were fair game. People in the know would try to tell us that we weren't supposed to be affected by that sort of thin... More »

Country Snapshot: Pakistan

Country Snapshot: Pakistan
Google search trends show Pakistan, Egypt and India as the top three countries in the world where surfers search for "sex" on the Internet. According to Google, surfers in Pakistan search more for the magic three-lettered word with them than do surfers in any other country. With this in mind, it... More »

Assault That Ass: Sun Tzu's perspective Or: Come to think of it, don't cum on my tatto

<i>Assault That Ass</i>: Sun Tzu's perspective Or: Come to think of it, <i>don't</i> cum on my tatto
Cody Lane presents a unique challenge for tacticians in Red Light District's Assault That Ass 11. While her ass is only minimally fortified, her high heels tottery, and as she is facing an incline (but looking back), it would appear that her ass is a target that will quickly fall, as outlined in Su...

Web 2.0 Hit Me Hard

Web 2.0 Hit Me Hard
Just when, after having Wasteland.com up and running nicely for 12 years now, and thinking that all of my strategies for acquiring traffic were in place and running like a well-oiled machine, along comes Web 2.0! Blogs! Community groups! User generated content! RSS feeds! The day I finally put it... More »
