Porn Dollars and Cents

Porn Dollars and Cents
There's a widely held misconception among people who have never worked in the adult entertainment industry that making a porn movie is a path to quick riches. Buy a video camera, place a few ads in your local paper, and you're in business — at least according to conventional wisdom. There's ... More »

Fuel Injected 4: Dumb title, nice ass

<i>Fuel Injected 4</i>: Dumb title, nice ass
I really try to be oblique here on XBiz, because I know you are a refined group. Also, I know that "Look at the jugs on her" is pretty much universally understood. Still, with a title like Fuel Injected, which sounds like a 12-year-old boy came up with it and was then disappointed that there was ... More »

Crush groove

<i>Crush</i> groove
I talked with Hustler director Wit Maverick about his recent release, the girl-on-girl extravaganza Crush. GP: Wit, Why girls? WM: Why not girls? GP: Good point. On the boxcover, Faith is peeking out from behind an ass. Whose ass is it? WM: That is Ryder's ass. The prettiest face in the ... More »

Less Traffic, More Profit?

Less Traffic, More Profit?
On the first read, the title of this article might sound a little insane, but by the end of it, you will realize that I am totally right. I have been running an adult site for three years now. The site is not doing badly and provides me with a normal living. But I was always a man of analytical t... More »

Report: No schism between Autism, jism

"We named this one Big Black Dic... More »

U.S. Obscenity Law
When adult entertainment providers hire attorneys to review their films, magazines or websites, they frequently ask, "Could this material cause me legal problems?" But quite often it is difficult to offer a simple yes or no answer because for many years the American courts have been wrestling with w... More »

Dreaming of Blondes

Dreaming of Blondes
The tranquil David Aaron Clark tries to look on the bright side of recent research concluding that the gene responsible for blond hair might evolve out of existence within two centuries. "Just imagine, 200 years from now: Blonde snuff porn. It’ll be the shit. Unless, of course, snuff porn is pa... More »

Up in the Club sandwich

<I>Up in the Club</I> sandwich
Melissa Lauren's makeup job on the box of Up in the Club: New York originally made me think this was a hentai title, at which point I wondered how long the tentacles needed to be for such tall buildings. Turns out the film is live action and co-directed by the duo known as Astrux, which itself so... More »

Rocco's Road

Rocco's Road
Women may dominate the adult industry in terms of pure star power and name recognition, but every once in a while, a male performer also achieves superstar status.
