Katja Kassin: Landmädl redux

Katja Kassin: Landmädl redux
There are always exceptions, but your pal Gram prefers women he thinks he could cross the desert on. With that in mind, a while ago I sought out a word that would describe a woman whose qualities combined a voluptuous figure and a canny sensibility. Katja Kassin taught me the word "landmädl" (which... More »

Carmella Bing: a rack in the back

Carmella Bing: a rack in the back
It's important that you know that I value this nation's porn stars as decent, thoughtful people, and try to eschew conveniently lewd descriptions of my tasty subjects. But God Damn. At a little bar at the end of a larger bar at the other end of yet another bar upstairs at the Aladdin in Lass Vega... More »

Eva Angelina: How to dodge the draft

Eva Angelina: How to dodge the draft
When I heard that Eva Angelina was joining the Navy, I was very sad. When I heard that she wasn't, I was confused. As a service to both you and myself, today I sat down with Eva and found out the scoop. "For me, it was always 'Navy or Porn, Navy or Porn'," Angelina said. "So, though I never stopp... More »

Gina Lynn's feet

Gina Lynn's feet
Sometimes life takes you down a different path than that which you expected. Look at me, for example - I used to be Secretary of Commerce. I didn't know too much about Gina Lynn before I met her, but it was important for me to delve as deeply as I possibly could into what makes her tick before th... More »

Don't Mess with Riley Mason

Don't Mess with Riley Mason
With the shocking news that the "Don't Mess with Texas" slogan began as an anti-litter campaign twenty years ago, I watched with horror as a couple of fans tried to make Neu Wave Hookers star Riley Mason pose with a banana and then not clean it up when they dropped it on the table which held her pro...

Melodie Gore on TV

Melodie Gore on TV
Mountainous photographer Red Ezra put his site back online along with a blog. I'm enjoying the photographer blog sites like those of Ezra, Jimmy D., and the IShootPorn guy (I forget which is his real name and which is his porn name - just go to his site). Ezra has a talent for combining pinup pho... More »

"You treat objects like women, man."

"You treat objects like women, man."
I was thinking about this, one of my favorite quotes from The Big Lebowski (starring Jacklyn Lick) when I watched as Shane's World functionaries handed out guns to passersby in order to shoot at Molly Beth and Shyla Marie. Molly Beth will be in that hot tub until closing time, with luck lowering ... More »

Jesse Jane: Inappropriate

Jesse Jane: Inappropriate
Despite Jesse Jane's recent marriage to someone else, she is still one of my favorite people. "You'll find someone else, Gram," she said. "Who?" I cried. "Teagan? Janine? They are lost to me now." I asked Jesse how she prepared to host tomorrow's AVN awards with Greg Fitzsimmons. "Every... More »

The Enduring Saga of Spam

The Enduring Saga of Spam
I've been thinking about spam a lot lately, especially porn spam, even though I hardly get it anymore. At my former job, I got lots of it despite layers of filtering at both the computer and server levels. My reaction to receiving unsolicited porn varied from slightly bothered to seething outrage, b... More »

LEGAL PERSPECTIVES

Porn ‘Public Health Crisis’ Is False, Dangerous

We are witnessing the early stages of a moral panic, the likes of which we have not seen since the Reagan Administration. As I write this, there are 27 states in the process of passing mandatory porn... More »

The Skinny on the New DMCA Requirement

The requirements under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) have changed, but the sky is not falling. We have, even as a law firm, been hit with an unbelievable amount of spam sent out by law firms... More »
