"Watch Me Pee" doesn't sound any better in Spanish, but let's get married anyway

"Watch Me Pee" doesn't sound any better in Spanish, but let's get married anyway
Dimond Jewelz is a Latina porn actress who, according to her handlers, or putadors, has "made several films primarily for the Internet and private viewing." Included in her titles are Dimond in the Rough and Watch Me Pee. It's been a big month for Jewelz, who describes herself as "a mello down to... More »

Bittorrents a four letter word?

Bittorrents a four letter word?
Torrentspy is in the news due to the lawsuit from MPAA on their charges of contributory infringement. Many people on the sidelines are sharing their viewpoints on the good and bad of torrents. Alot of the content on torrents is illegal stuff, but there are certainly legitimate content on the... More »

New Porn Daily: A new parishioner is born in the Ghetto

New Porn Daily: A new parishioner is born in the Ghetto
There are those who feel that race and class-based porn is wrongheaded, but I am sure that they, like me, will be reassured now that the Latin mass is coming back. Why? Because ghettos, as we know from constant and repeated porn viewing, are hotbeds of primal lust and therefore of Latin scholarsh... More »

Do They Know It's Christmas?

Do They Know It's Christmas?
With a name liked Third World Media, savvy pporn consumers would expect only the best in Sub-Saharan Africa and Nigerian Internet Scam ladies, but in fact the company shoots on location just about everywhere other than Africa, including Japan, Thailand, and Brazil. My favorite of their DVD titles... More »

Making it Simple for the Folks

Making it Simple for the Folks
XBIZ ran an article this week called “Risky Business?” by Quentin Boyer that dealt with California’s Freeman case; which many in the industry point to as indicating an acceptance of legal porn production within the state. Boyer’s article kicked off with “Among the debates that take plac... More »

Pink is the new steve

Pink is the new steve
Pink is a suggestive color, of course, and it's no surprise that it is used in porn names (Jocelyn Pink, Pink Visual, 1 in the Pink, 1 in the Stink), but when I looked at this Joanna Angel cover from Hustler, her ex company (she's at ClubJenna now), it sent me poking around the steveporn corner of t...

The Haunting of Hill Feet

The Haunting of Hill Feet
This picture of Lana Croft in Red Light District's Obscene Behavior 2 reminds me of the scene in Shirley Jackson's "The Haunting of Hill House" in which (lesbians) Eleanor and (come on, they're so lesbians) Theodora clutch each other in a dark room against some unseen creepy thing outside, only to r...

It's hard to be a pornsaint in the city

It's hard to be a pornsaint in the city
This collection of artful renderings of some of my personal favorite porn personalities has a daunting amount of theory behind it, which can either be a turnoff, a justification, or, well, just those two. Best to not read the manifesto attached. Suffice to say that not since Bang Boat has there b... More »

Report: Geeks still more trustworthy than Justice Dept.

Report: Geeks still more trustworthy than Justice Dept.
You'd think that the Geek Squad wouldn't have to resort to stealing porn since they already get to keep those cool Beetles. The comments on Consumerist's story about how the Gawker Media website used a program like Remote Desktop or Timbuktu to catch a Geek Squad employee downloading a client's p... More »

Samantha Sterlyng: My Ass, Rummy's Face

Samantha Sterlyng: My  Ass, Rummy's Face
Semi-retired porn star (because she lives in Maryland) Samantha Sterlyng created a video for a college Government class in which she projected slides of current and former Bush Administration officials on her body. I can imagine how her professor reacted when she turned in her homework. "I tho... More »
