Where everybody knows your lube
Doc (not a real doctor) Johnson, in his quest to keep his finger on the pulse of the lube-using public, has turned to the world of distilled spirits for inspiration. "Doc’s Cocktails™ are served in five flavors: Fuzzy Navel, Mimosa, Cosmopolitan, Sour Apple Martini, and Mojito. While Doc Cockt... More »

A Shot Across the Bow

A Shot Across the Bow
One of the quickest and simplest ways that adult webmasters can harden themselves against being a target for prosecution is by employing a “warning” page on their sites. All adult websites – especially those that use non-explicitly adult terms in their domain name – should provide a barr... More »

Producing Adult

Producing Adult
How important is the role of a director in a gonzo production? Not very, according to Michael Stefano, director at Platinum X Productions and Red Light District. "The whole 'director' term is just a joke anyway because anybody with a camera directs now," Stefano explains. "It's just a word so tha... More »

Generation of Anal Swine

Generation of <i>Anal Swine</i>
It's a certain kind of person who really likes Monty Python, a certain kind of person who really likes Charles Bukowski, and a certain kind of person who really wants to be Hunter S. Thompson.

Fighting the Good Fight
My long time readers know that I’m a fan of climbing on my soap box and lecturing the masses on the benefits of “doing the right thing.” While I am a great proponent of adult industry self-regulation, I am by no means the only voice on this subject, with a number of industry trade groups putti...

Blog Squad Hits Stride

Blog Squad Hits Stride
The number of blogs on the Internet, which doubles every few months, is well into eight digits by now. How many, exactly, is anyone's guess, but at least a handful of this newfound "Adult Blog Squad" — some of whom seem to have lives, some who probably don't — regularly take on the business of p...

Bangin' amateurs

<i>Bangin'</i> amateurs
One of the most difficult words to define in porn is "amateur".
