ASACP Holding Self-Labeling Workshop at Internext

ASACP Holding Self-Labeling Workshop at Internext
I’ve told you before about the Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) and the good work the organization is doing on behalf of the adult industry; now it’s set for its latest initiative: a roundtable discussion on the issues surrounding the self-labeling of adult sites, being h...

Don't ever say that porn directors aren't blue-collar joes just like you.... More »

Say Goodbye to the Tits

Say Goodbye to the Tits
I had two really good discussions yesterday regarding the current ‘2257 situation, company policies and the broader impact of record keeping burdens beyond adult. The first came about when Playboy’s TGP Manager (and longtime XBIZ Moderator) Vendzilla came by for a Sunday visit. Protective of... More »

Black Orchid and pornostalgia

<i>Black Orchid</i> and pornostalgia
Sin City is re-releasing Michael Ninn's Black Orchid as part of its monthly "Classics" program. The 1993 movie stars Sunset Thomas, Ona Zee, Veronica Hart, TT Boy, and Ariana. A 13-year-old porn movie is roughly the age of a 25-year-old mainstream film, and as such is a valuable historical docume... More »

Hookers and ELI

Hookers and ELI
I think people who wave their hands and trill "TMI! TMI!" when presented with data you have willingly given them should be slapped for the bitchez they is. But two recent cases of what I like to call ELI, or Embarrassing Lateral Information, have been on my mind. A friend of mine who is a porn... More »

A Higher Calling

A Higher Calling
We in adult entertainment have a purpose. We offer a window of relief, instantaneous satisfaction, a realized fantasy, a pleasure of the moment.

EU Domain Names Seized

EU Domain Names Seized
You wanted a “.eu” domain name, but it was taken? Hope may be in store for you in the near future. Belgium-based EURid, the authority overseeing European domain names, has recalled over 74,000 “.eu” domains and is taking legal action against the 400 registrars it claims abused its service...

After the loving

After the loving
I have always been an admirer of the no-nonsense work of Stoney Curtis, who has brought the world titles like Wax Dat Black Azz and Phat Azz Bitches. Today I was at Trader Joe's returning some pomegranate juice. "This tastes like azz, bitch," I said to the Hawaiian-shirted manager, thanking St... More »

Database Dilemmas

Database Dilemmas
Robust, reliable and redundant technologies are, or at least should be, the basis of all successful e-commerce operations; yet somewhat surprisingly, many adult companies seem to forego maximum uptime in favor of enhanced interactivity and “bells and whistles.” A case in point is the widespr...
