The Great Board Count

The Great Board Count
Congratz. Way to go, dude. Wow. Awesome. Keep it up. Can't wait 'til it happens to me. You guessed it; I was on the boards today, eyeing the post-count threads, reading post-count posts. This kind of audit is a punitive exercise. I recommend it to anyone with masochistic leanings. Do it the next ... More »

"Porn flatters itself," sniffs Blu-ray

"Porn flatters itself," sniffs Blu-ray
Blu-ray Association spokesman Andy Parsons, a vice president of Pioneer, suggests that adult's notion of itself as a technology Taste Leader is exaggerated, even if the industry helped decide the VHS-Betamax war in the 80's. "Adult content should be appreciated for what it is," Parsons told Var... More »

Chavon Taylor in Big Bodacious Knockers 2

Chavon Taylor in <i>Big Bodacious Knockers 2</i>
People are so easily offended, to the point that I think some people actively seek out things to be offended by. I am not that way, for I am a Buddhist. Because a strain of Clan Ponante came from the Emerald Isle, there are backwards impressions of my claddagh ring on many the nose of a shady aff... More »

Sometimes t... More »

Dreaming of Snow and Heidi Ho

<i>Dreaming of Snow</i> and Heidi Ho
David Aaron Clark's Dreaming of Snow, a two-disc compilation of scenes he shot here and there from as far back as 2002, is an excellent way of getting acclimated to his particular style, which seems to bridge the gap between 70's movie theatre porn from New York and San Francisco and today's by-the-...

Keeping Customers: 1
Ruben Sturman, and later Larry Flynt, moved their early book- and magazine-selling operations from back alleys and car trunks into adult bookstores that eventually dotted the U.S. map. Twenty or 30 years later, it was the advent of the Internet that accelerated the evolution of the adult industry in... More »

Here are two of my favorite performers, captured in my legendary arthouse photographic style. Who are they? See also: Why might Dana Dearmond want to download "96 Tears"?... More »

Philippine Teen

<i>Philippine Teen</i>
The interesting thing about Shag Manila's Philippine Teen, aside from the feeling that the scenes were shot in Martin Sheen's hotel room in Apocalypse Now, is the vague disinterest these amateurs show.
