Opinion Features for Adult Industry Professionals

Women in Adult

Women in Adult
This month I'd like to talk about women in adult — not the organization but the actual women who work in the adult entertainment industry and the perception that I, as a man, have of them and their place in this business. Right off the bat, I'll admit that I've been called a chauvinist, but I d... More »

Jesse Jane's frosting initiative

Jesse Jane's frosting initiative
I first watched someone use semen as a birthday cake frosting in Benny Profane's Psychocandy 3. I must tell you it wasn't pleasant, though Profane and I are good friends who worked on the Inyo case back in '97 and have the scars to prove it. No less distasteful but somehow easier to deal with is ... More »

Porn for the greatest generation, pt. II

Porn for the greatest generation, pt. II
There are so many ways to commemorate The Day that Will Live in Infamy (pt. I). Tailgunners is a multilingual and sweeping tale of vulva-based intrigue during the Big One, re-imagining a world in which Franklin Roosevelt uses a wheelchair for (literally) kicks, Eleanor is not nearly the lesbian...

The Power of the P...
I often wonder if I found the adult industry or it found me. I came to terms a long time ago with the fact that it's a man's world, which is fine with me. I get along with men better anyway, for the most part. Perhaps this comfort is rooted in my upbringing and choices I've made over the years. I lo... More »

Another Look at Labeling

Another Look at Labeling
It’s a subject that I’ve written about many times before; the need for all responsible operators of adult websites to properly label their sites as a means of preventing access to adult materials by those that are either legally or otherwise prohibited from viewing adult content or by those that...

35 years of grass on the field

35 years of grass on the field
I was talking with the courtly Tod-Hunter and breast-man Steve Nelson the other night. Both are my respected elders. They got into a discussion about Playboy Playmate Liv Lindeland and the first time pubic hair was seen in a magazine (turns out Tod was right by a year). Both talked about what a s... More »

Here's Nautica Thorn from Digital Playground's sometimes cock-free Cockasian. As in Way of the Dragon, DP seems to stumble now and then in accurately representing my forebears from the mysterious east. Maybe they should give David Aaron Clark an office? Still, a fun movie regardless. Read t... More »

Keep Pushing Forward

Keep Pushing Forward
Aren't there women behind most successful men? I think that is truer today than ever before, though the definition of that may have changed. Some powerful women are on the front lines, but many more aren't. Many women find themselves doing much of the work for little reward. A limited few wor... More »

Report: XBiz award desirable

Report: XBiz award desirable
When you get right down to it, the adult industry has transitioned to a 12-month awards season model and, were the business to move to Neptune, there would soon be 163 times more adult awards shows as the eighth planet made its wider loop around the Sun. Regardless, insouciant upstart XBiz has a... More »
