Pricing a Peek

Pricing a Peek
Have you ever considered the value of a trial membership to your paysite? This is a topic with many facets and more complexities than most webmasters consider, but for now, let me opine that the majority of trial pricing seems to be done by the ‘feel good’ method: i.e. “my competitor char...

Audacia goes the extra mile

Audacia goes the extra mile
Audacia Ray, who in this photo looks like the favorite aunt I never had, wipes off the strap-on of her star, Tasty Trixie, in Adam & Eve's upcoming film The Bi Apple. In the background is New York City, baby. Here is some sample dialogue. I don't know what it means. TRIXIE: So what do you... More »

Are Processors Parasites?

Are Processors Parasites?
The open-source encyclopaedia Wikipedia defines Parasitism thus: "a phenomenon in which two organisms which are phylogenetically unrelated co-exist over a prolonged period of time, usually their entire life."

Jenna: Statue no Cheap Trick

Jenna: Statue no Cheap Trick
"I had heard the WACS recruited old maids ..." - "Surrender" Oh. You meant wax? Temptation Awards Hall of Fame member Jenna Jameson unveiled her wax statue at Madame Tussaud's Las Vegas Waxeteria last month. Aside from Bill Clinton, she is the only adult star so immortalized. ... More »

Latinas Who Crave It in the Ass and the people who love them

<i>Latinas Who Crave It in the Ass</i> and the people who love them
I suppose calling the movie Ass Craving-It Latinas or Craving-It-in-the-Ass Latinas would sound awkward, but Latinas Who Crave It in the Ass! sounds more like an article in the New England Journal of Medicine. Also, why the exclamation point? And why is Chiquita Lopez playing with her nipples whe... More »

Quick turnaround in the gape department

Quick turnaround in the gape department
The following entry will hold no interest for members of the adult industry, but for the 96 percent of the readership that doesn't work in porn, I think it will be fascinating. In the middle of June I attended the filming of Lethal Hardcore's Cum in My Gaping Butthole 2, and now the five scene go... More »

The Real Bottom Line

The Real Bottom Line
For many in this business, the bottom line is all about making money. That’s sad, because it overlooks the real bottom line: living long and healthy enough to enjoy the money you make. I ran an article by Joanne Cachapero on XBIZ today entitled “Health Care in Adult” that touched upon this ... More »

At home with April Flores and Carlos Batts

At home with April Flores and Carlos Batts
"It's never work to take her picture," said photographer Carlos Batts of wife and Alter Ego star April Flores. "Shooting her relaxes me." It's about 10,000 degrees in Hollywood, and just under that at their place south of Franklin. They're breaking the rules by letting the dog on the bed for a pi... More »

Customer value and your pain threshold

Customer value and your pain threshold
On a constant basis, I talk to industry peers about the effectiveness of their ad campaigns, focusing on financial return on investment. For pay site owners, the issue of customer value seems to be straightforward – what is the average value in dollars for each subscriber or simply – what is a c... More »

A Higher Score

A Higher Score
I was amused to see a story on CNN this morning discussing the controversy over recent donations to a local school by one of Score’s gentleman’s clubs. Apparently the popular strip club held a special fund-raising event where dancers dressed as schoolgirls, teachers, librarians and the like, wit... More »
