It's Not Your Father's Porn

It's Not Your Father's Porn
Just as alternative music was a response to the record industry's formulaic radio fodder, a new brand of porn has sprung up to offer a visual and philosophical counterpoint to more mainstream porn websites and videos. It's called "altporn." You won't find spray-tanned models with silicone imp... More »

Continuing Education Credits

Continuing Education Credits
We in the porn community bond over many issues: patriotism, freedom, and tolerance are but three. But we are also very close-knit and supportive of one another. When AVN's Mike Ramone asked for my thoughts on his submission for the X Prize, a spacecraft that he had built on the railroad tracks b... More »

An Extreme Appeal

An Extreme Appeal

Hailey's Cumet

Hailey's <i>Cumet</i>
Once a week, depending on what circles I'm traveling in, I will usually have a "Somebody gets paid for that?" moment. The first one, several years ago, was housekeeper.

Veal
The other day I was dining at a trendy Hollywood eatery when a starlet I had reviewed in a porn film approached me with venom and malice. "I don't understand half the things you write," she said. "What about the other half?" I asked. "I think that's dumb, too." I had accused her of ... More »

Mainstream Sex Shopping

It is fair to assume that your request would be greeted with stunned silence, wild la... More »

Fellation Fixation

Fellation Fixation
Freud's five stages of psychosexual development (oral, anal, phallic, latency, genital) are well-represented in the porn industry.
