Opinion Features for Adult Industry Professionals

Overheated Production

Overheated Production
Our story so far: It's a dark and stormy night in the adult DVD business. Sales are off. Competition from other markets is cutting into the profitability of large and small producers alike. Pirates are running rampant. Margins on new releases barely justify their budgets. And worst of all, there are... More »

Solving for (anal)

Solving for (anal)
A porn producer I know (r) has an anecdote that, since I didn't confirm the allegations with the other parties involved, I am forced to relate alegebraically: "So we start shooting at (x)'s house and she says, 'Am I doing anal today?' and we said 'No,'" he said. "Don't you book scenes with an un... More »

Nightshift Nurses - Sweat Lodge

<i>Nightshift Nurses</i> - Sweat Lodge
For those of you paying $700 a month on your heating bills, without even the assistance of Hugo Chavez, the notion of someone actually complaining that temperatures in Porn Valley reached 96 degrees this weekend probably makes you indignant. They made me indignant, too. I remember a time not too lon... More »

A Supercock for all seasons

A <I>Supercock</i> for all seasons
At a quiet ceremony by the Porn Valley Lake and Salmon Ladder this morning, Ben English, Peter North, and Sledge Hammer were given their "Super Cock" medals and insignia, which will allow them library book amnesty and single-occupant passage in otherwise-HOV lanes on the Ronald Reagan freeway.

Wicked Girls unaware of crimes

Wicked Girls unaware of crimes
I have seen this picture hundreds of times, but I haven't truly looked at it until now, hip as I have become to the suffering of others. Only Kirsten Price seems to know or care that Kaylani is copping a feel off Carmen Hart. But will she do anything about it? UPDATE: KAYLANI LEI SHOCKER!! ... More »

Burnt offering

<i>Burnt</i> offering
Here are Lanny Barby and Hillary Scott from Vivid's Burnt Fury. It is a measure of the brief time Scott has been in the business that even the Female Performer of the Year responded with some shame when I walked into the room. Barby, being Canadian, knew that what the two of them were doing was whol... More »

If it isn’t one thing, it’s another…

If it isn’t one thing, it’s another…
Many adult webmasters have been rejoicing lately over ICANN’s latest (and supposedly “final”) rejection of ICM’s .XXX TLD proposal. While this is natural and understandable, I’m always cautious about counting the other guy out. Indeed, ICM President Stuart Lawley told XBIZ on the day of... More »

Puttin' on the Filth, or: Once more, with attitude

Puttin' on the <i>Filth</i>, or: Once more, with attitude
Here are some photos from Otto Bauer's Filth Factory, featuring (l-r) Rebecca Linares, Audrey Hollander (note that the drapes indeed match the drapes), and Charlotte Stokely. The veteran photographer Mario was taking stills, and frame 1 is the ladies at parade rest. Then he said, "I gonna count t... More »

Welcome to Porn, McKenzie and Phoebe

Welcome to Porn, McKenzie and Phoebe
As you know, I drink a lot of coffee. It was strange, then, when I opened my e-mail this morning to find two women who look exactly like barristas at the Porn Valley Starbucks I frequent. Both are represented by Absolute Modeling. The first is McKenzie Michelle. McKenzie does, if not enjoys,... More »
