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
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.

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 »
