Opinion Features for Adult Industry Professionals

Another Look at .XXX

Another Look at .XXX
My first-glance opinion about the recent resurgence of the .XXX sTLD application by ICM Registry is that powerful forces outside of the adult industry have made the decision that they want it to happen and that nothing short of an intervention by equally powerful forces can stop it. After having mad... More »

Hoopla and Hysteria

Hoopla and Hysteria
Whether you were planning to attend it or not, you’ve likely heard about the upcoming SnowGathering in Reykjavik, Iceland, sponsored by FreeOnes.com – and you’ve also likely heard about all the commotion and uncertainty over the event’s outcome; due to local criticism about the event by a vo...

When to be concerned

When to be concerned
The lovely (and pregnant) Felicia Fox sent this along. I only got 10 out of 16. Previously: Janine: "It might happen today" See also: Can You Tell the Difference between a Female and a Shemale?, Felicia Fox, The Sausage Factory... More »

Passages: Hentai turns back on porn screenwriting

Passages: Hentai turns back on porn screenwriting
Today I talked with former AVN coworker/current HentaiPR owner Wayne Hentai. One of his side projects recently has been writing porn scripts. I will not tell you what they were. He has seen about 15 of them made into movies. We are going to see each other on a set this afternoon. "Did you writ... More »

Mature 20, ancient shark 0

<i>Mature 20</i>, ancient shark 0
Random pictures appear in my Inbox, and these two arrived simultaneously. It makes me think that nothing is random. That a little thought can provide the connections between all things. Flashpoint Pictures' Mature 20, starring Brandee on the beach, might have something to do with the surfaci... More »

I'll see you on the dark side of Mika Tan

I'll see you on the dark side of Mika Tan
It is difficult to comprehend that Mika Tan is anything but nice. That said, I must hold in my head the competing belief that everything Ninnworx says is true. Thus we have Ninnworx' director Lorraine Sisco's Façade, starring Tan as "a power-hungry fetishist, who colors the dreary boredom of lif... More »

Big Boobs 3: The Hard Way

<i>Big Boobs 3: The Hard Way</i>
One of the things people don't talk about when describing their first experiences with porn is that part of the fascination back then was that this was the way adults conducted themselves, and that the people in the rain-soaked pictures of rolled-up magazines behind the junior high school looked mor...

Publicity still of the week: Vince Vouyer

Publicity still of the week: Vince Vouyer
There were two awkward trophy moments at last month's AVN Awards, and one belonged to this guy, who more or less commandeered the award from Amy Ried, who had taken the stage to accept it. Vouyer's Breakin' 'em In #9, starring Ried, won Best Pro-Am release, and in the flurry of self-congratulator... More »

Smiles, everyone - smiles!

Smiles, everyone - smiles!
Now that I live in the bucolic Gram Ponante Towers, Aviary, Helipad, and Lobster Hatchery, the women who come and go from my Porn Supremacist Compound never return with tales that construction workers or passersby of a certain nationality in various eastern seaboard megalopolises in which we've live...

1 track mind

1 track mind
This Los Angeles-based webisodic sex culture site might be heavy on the 80's stand-up comedian patter at times (hence the Balki and Larry pose; both hosts Danielle Stewart and Lou Santini are working comics), but its value comes from interchanges like this one, about the new Korean robot lady: Sa...

Adult Biz Faces More Obstacles Past Prop. 60 Battle

On Feb. 1, I completed 365 days as the Free Speech Coalition’s executive director. It was a turbulent first year, and when I received the 2017 XBIZ Industry Leadership Award I was startled, humbled... More »
