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 »

A Tale of Two Markets

A Tale of Two Markets
In light of the statements and speculations that Tom Hymes makes in two recent articles, They're Heeeere! and Fractured Fairytales, and taken as a whole; one must always, and is virtually forced to, start from the proposition that there are only two kinds of people in this business: "liars" and "dam...

It takes more than a sexy nurse's outfit and nipple clamps to make an effective universal healthcare
...but who are we kidding? If there's never going to be an effective universal healthcare program, we might as well have sexy nurse's outfits and nipple clamps. Read the review of Medical Pain Sluts here. Previously: Products for your down under from down under; Viv Thomas' Pink Velvet Trilogy... More »

How you gonna keep 'em down on (Seymore Butts' Ass Farmer) once they've seen Karl Hungus?

How you gonna keep 'em down on (<i>Seymore Butts' Ass Farmer</i>) once they've seen Karl Hungus?
"Appalachian Spring" isn't playing in the background, no one frolics in the hay, nothing is raised from the earth, shipped to market, or sold at a quaint stand by the highway. No spiders befriend pigs, no animals reveal themselves to be more equal than others, no crystal is unearthed below the barn ... More »
