One Last Look

One Last Look
Recently, XBIZ World magazine asked several industry players, "What was the biggest newsmaker in 2006?"

XBiz Forum And Awards: Us v. Them

XBiz Forum And Awards: Us v. Them
The XBiz Hollywood Forum was a success for the content it squeezed into two brief days of parties, seminars, and mingling. Webmasters spend double-digit hours in front of their computers each day, and even when they drive their car a block to the local Quizno's, they still carry a pager to be alerte... More »

Passing the Torch: 2

Passing the Torch: 2

In this conclusion, we'll look at the dilemma over enforcement and election year politics. Enforcement Dilemma? Consequently, because there are both political benefits and ris... More »

All About All About Anna

All About <i>All About Anna</i>
I sat on this review for a while because this 2005 Swedish quasi-porn movie (where the lack of reality comes from the story rather than the sex) had yet to be released in the United States, though it is on Wicked's slate for distribution this Spring. But All About Anna will be screened by the Un... More »

Passing the Torch: 1

Passing the Torch: 1
When viewed from a legal perspective, there is no doubt that 2006 has been a tough year for adult entertainment businesses and the cherished free speech rights that protect every American's right to obtain and view sexually expressive materials.

Sophia Santi's golden arches

Sophia Santi's golden arches
I interviewed Sophia Santi at last year's AVN convention and yesterday and, to my horror, saw that her eyebrows had not changed. In fact, I had absently left my room key on her right eyebrow last year and it was still there when I came back. The image on the left was taken in 2006. Here Santi app... More »

I Love Adult, But...

I Love Adult, But...
"One day I'm gonna die, and I'm gonna be in this same fucking room, with these same fucking guys, talking about these same fucking scams that never amount to anything, and that's how I'll know I got sent to fucking hell." That's a line from mob boss Sonny in the film "Donnie Brasco." I reprint it... More »

Porned Alaska
Alaska, the graphic designer whose boxcover art is often the best part of many porn movies, has a new website featuring his porn work and mainstream art. Six Months of Light vaults the designer out of his .net ghetto into .com sunshine, with all the respect and validation that implies. How many t... More »

Beware of Greeks bearing jizz

Beware of Greeks bearing jizz
Barbed Wire Kiss, the movie that launched my stellar directing career (I put my unmistakeable filmic signature on a scene between Adrianna Nicole and Tee Real in an otherwise-Benny Profane-directed movie) will be shown at the Athens (Greece) film festival. I don't like the word jizz, but it was t... More »


E-Stim Basics: Selling Customers on Powerboxes as Pleasure Tools

Electrosex is a commonly misunderstood pleasure practice for good reason: Most of us have negative associations with electricity; maybe we’ve been shocked after rubbing our feet across a carpeted... More »

Search Oftentimes Is Left to Chance

Adult content is frowned upon in search, whether in paid, organic or social. With the big algo updates from the past few years, Google has cleaned up search, trying to get rid of spammy and low-quality... More »
