Women Out Front: An Important Opportunity

Women Out Front: An Important Opportunity
For years, the adult entertainment industry has had an image problem – more than one, obviously, but if there’s one critique of the industry that has spanned the entirety of its history, it’s that the industry and its products are inherently misogynist. It’s one of the oddit... More »

Boys Will Be Boys (And Sometimes Girls, Too)

Boys Will Be Boys (And Sometimes Girls, Too)
While the question of online ad legitimacy and user profile verity or “enhancement” is not new, I found an interesting perspective on the topic in a recent article at Vice.com: “Things You Learn Designing Porn Banners For A Living,” which interviews a young Jewish girl named ... More »

ASACP Responds to Morality in Media

ASACP Responds to Morality in Media
In a recent newsletter sent out by Morality in Media entitled “Proof the Tide is Turning!” it was claimed that the adult entertainment industry is scared and “they recognize that we are coming for them and that we are collectively saying no more to sexual exploitation.” MIM c... More »

Creating an In-Store Experience That Outshines Online Competition

Creating an In-Store Experience That Outshines Online Competition

The Miracle of Viral Marketing

The Miracle of Viral Marketing
I was nominated on Aug. 24 and completed the now-infamous #IceBucketChallenge the following day from sunny Las Vegas. The temperature was 97 degrees, and I believe that worked in my favor. My video speech was posted to my Facebook to be seen by family and friends, and a Tweet went out @juicyads. Li... More »

Legal Reality: Should You Have a Prenuptial Agreement?

Legal Reality: Should You Have a Prenuptial Agreement?
Summertime has passed, and like every summer, the weather was beautiful and a whole lot of people got married. That’s a good thing, for as a friend of mine once told me, “Marriage is a sacred institution. It’s something a man only does ... two or three times in his life!” Unf... More »

Law of Sex: Fighting Private Censorship

Law of Sex: Fighting Private Censorship
