Opinion Features for Adult Industry Professionals

Alexis Skye and conditioned thinking

Alexis Skye and conditioned thinking
I have met some very attractive transsexuals but, like renting the last several seasons of "24" just so I can catch up on it, I have no real time to get familiar with a new landscape. At last month's AVN Expo, which is now a distant memory from which I have moved on and grown, I met Alexis Skye, ... More »

Caprica Six gets a ten

Caprica Six gets a ten
Tricia Helfer, who plays one of those new model skinjob Cylons on "Battlestar Galactica", has boldly gone where Grace Park and Katee Sackhoff should follow in disrobing for Playboy. Will Playboy go after all of that ragtag, fugitive fleet on their combined quest: a shining planet known as Earth? ... More »

Gaped Crusaders

<i>Gaped Crusaders</i>
Early Movie Title of the Year honors go to Hustler, whose Gaped Crusaders pokes its head out of the post-Vegas/AVN eye sludge like a delightful prairie dog. Gaped Crusaders, starring the chameleon-like Holly Wellin as well as Jada Fire and Unsung Starlet Mika Tan, is an early contender for the 20... More »

One Last Look

One Last Look
Recently, XBIZ World magazine asked several industry players, "What was the biggest newsmaker in 2006?" Here's what they had to say: "The biggest newsmaker of 2006 in the adult industry in my opinion had to be Zango. Webmasters are still baffled by how this company is allowed to continue to po...

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 part one, we began our look at the midterm elections and the resulting shift in Congressional power to the Democrats. 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. It was a year in which the adult entertainment industr... More »

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 »


Breaking the Fourth Wall: VR Production Tactics, Techniques

The tech world has long seen the cyclic debut of fabulous (and fabulously expensive) products, which initially wowed pundits and early adopters, but were left antiquated with the next round of releases. Virtual... More »
