Opinion Features for Adult Industry Professionals

Zango Bango

Zango Bango
Previously, I discussed Zango and my likes and dislikes of its business model. While I do think it’s an attractive vehicle for advertisers, I believe that as a website owner, it may not be in my interest to have surfers using the technology. If you’re in the “Zango’s gotta go” camp, you... More »

An Adult Slowdown? 2

An Adult Slowdown? 2
In part one, we looked at market saturation, newbies and the survival game. In today's conclusion, we'll look at getting comfortable, building a better mousetrap, creativity and beyond: Getting Comfortable "When the commercial companies that sell DVDs begin to acknowledge the shift toward the In...

Archaeological porn

Archaeological porn
Here at the XBiz Family of Adult Services we take somber delight in watching old sitcoms and, when the pet walks into frame, saying, "Tiger is probably dead now." It is not the same for nudes. For example, when this image from Lasse Braun's My Porno Girls magazine arrived in the Inbox, we said, "... More »

An Adult Slowdown? 1

An Adult Slowdown? 1
In the U.S., there are more than 400 adult production companies, and in 2005, more than 13,600 titles were released. The number of adult websites is almost infinite. Compare these numbers to those of a decade ago, and the difference is staggering. So how is this affecting the adult entertainment bus... More »

Bienvenido a Valle de Porn, Casey Parker

Bienvenido a Valle de Porn, Casey Parker
As the Mayor of Porn Valley (in that way I am like Vaclav Havel), I am often asked to ceremonially greet new arrivals. Thus I brought Shane's World contract performer Casey Parker to the Lamplighter restaurant at the corner of Nordhoff and De Soto in Chatsworth. "AVN is right over there, Hus... More »

How's It goin'?

How's It goin'?
Thanks for asking, my friends, but it appears to be goin' down. I don't know what It is, and I don't know how long It has been traveling south. If It has a specific destination in mind or if It is planning to meet someone when It finally arrives at Down, I'm not sure. Like you, I suffer from a... More »

Trend: Gays smarter

Trend: Gays smarter
Two new gay compilations from Hustler imprint HIS DVD reveal something I've suspected every time I see a gay man dancing in a club surrounded by women who are grinding on him: Gay men are smarter. Both Alley of the Balls and Naked Munch contain scenes from as far back as a decade ago, gathered in... More »

Do You Zango?

Do You Zango?
It’s brilliant – but I hate it – but as an advertiser, I’m inclined to use it. The “it” is Zango, a contextual advertising platform that’s been the subject of often heated discussion lately within the adult webmaster community. The reason that I say it’s brilliant is because the Z... More »

Wake Up!

Wake Up!
There are very few things that bother me about this business. Typically the average webmaster is a good guy just trying to make a living. Sure, every once in a while you run into those pieces of trash that think short term, and that's usually how long they last in this business — short term. The ... More »

"I'm your secretary."

"I'm your <i>secretary</i>."
Throughout history, women have been able to hide their beauty with nothing but glasses and by keeping their hair up. Not only does this fool the men they crave but it also fools themselves. How many times does the bespectacled woman's sassy girlfriend require a montage sequence to 1. remove the g... More »
