The Sucking Vacuum

The Sucking Vacuum
Over my 20-plus years as a writer, producer, director and sometime performer in the field of X-rated video, I've occasionally been asked how I settled on my nom de porn, Ernest Greene. Actually, it was the kind of dumb joke industry newcomers often make on the assumption that they won't be here too ... More »

Porn and spelling

Porn and spelling
As you know, women are aroused when they observe good spelling. They like to get closer to the people who do it, and are often observed fellating them. "Grams, I want to make freak on you," said my junior high school girlfriend, Thongtop Juicypants (she was from Thailand) when I won the spelling ... More »

Truth is beauty

Truth is beauty
There is always something slightly off about the women in the True dating service ads I need to navigate past in order to get to my useless MySpace page. This is the first one whom I thought might make a good addition to the Gram Ponante Towers, Yurt, and Militarized Compound above the Santa Susa... More »

Humor in erotic Web advertising

Humor in erotic Web advertising
OK, so as of late, I have been studying the traffic patterns and consumer behavior on user-generated/shared content networks.

Concentric circle jerks of porn profits

Concentric circle jerks of porn profits
The next-most-useless thing to the inflated revenue declared by Big Porn is people blogging about it. The thesis statement of Boing Boing's story about how the adult industry couldn't possibly make $13 billion a year is that the organization offering that number, AVN, is the only source people go...

What to Expect in 2007

What to Expect in 2007
I don’t make specific forecasts about the porn industry and I am not going to start now, but I have been saying of late (and do believe) that 2007 is going to be a very divisive year, filled with an increased number of lawsuits, accusations of fraud and general mayhem. It won’t be cataclysmic (t... More »

Because I could not wait for MILFs...

Because I could not wait for MILFs...
Pity the MILF. While you were out boozing it up with all your buddies, getting up to God-knows-what, she was back at home raising your children in her thong. No New Year's revelry for her; she was on her knees scrubbing your boat deck with her ass in the air, dreaming only of chocolate-covered cherr... More »
